Grow the Coast draws 125 growers By Mary Faith Bell For the Citizen

Upwards of 125 people attended Grow the Coast – the north coast conference on growing food – held in Nehalem in early November. Grow the Coast was put on by Food Roots of Tillamook and Clatsop counties, and was designed to bring

small farmers and food producers and people who are interested in the local food movement together to learn about a wide range of topics from pasture management for healthy animals, to the specifics of the new Farm Direct law that went into effect Jan. 1, 2012. Conference attendees heard from a professional couple from Washington, D.C., Lori and Steven

Rutledge, who recently gave up university tenure and a law practice to try their hands at farming. Classes included how to identify and forage for wild mushrooms; how to choose crops best suited to the north coast climate, and how to combat pests with organic solutions. Attendees

In the 2012 general election, Tillamook County followed the rest of the country in voting to re-elect President Barack Obama, and the rest of the 5th Congressional District in re-electing Rep. Kurt Schrader. In statewide races, Tillamook County voted for the incumbent Secretary of State, State Treasurer, state Attorney General, and Commissioner of Labor and Industries—as did voters statewide. In the countywide contest for County Commissioner, Position 1, where Tillamook CPA (and Port of Tillamook Bay President) Bill Baertlein faced Tillamook Estuaries Partnership executive director (and former Rockaway Beach Mayor) Lisa Phipps, Baertlein won, 60% (6831 votes) to Phipps’ 40% (4487 votes). Phipps carried six of the county’s 30 precincts, those that covered Manzanita, Nehalem, Wheeler, Rockaway, Oceanside and Neskowin and their environs. Those precincts mostly voted heavily for Phipps.

A drenching downpour, although problematic, didn’t stop upwards of 50 local, county and state officials from gathering at Roy Creek Oct. 30 to celebrate the successful completion of the bridge on Foss Road over the Nehalem River tributary, which will vastly improve fish migration. “This is really a big deal,” said Sen. Betsy Johnson of the decade old effort. Johnson praised the agencies and governmental entities for their collaboration, saying, “This goes to show what we can accomplish when we work together.” The quest to improve fish passage at Roy Creek underneath Foss Road and the railroad tracks that run

alongside had been on the agenda of the Lower Nehalem Watershed Council (LNWC) for nearly a decade. In 2001, the LNWC was awarded a technical assistance grant from the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB) to design the Roy Creek crossing to help facilitate fish migration. The existing culverts were beginning to decay and became misaligned over the years changing the flow rates and making it impossible for fish to get upstream to spawn, according to George Hemingway, board president of the LNWC. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife had rated the replacement of the Roy Creek/Foss Road crossing as one of the highest priority restoration projects in Tillamook County. The culverts blocked access of high potential spawning and rearing habitat for endangered and threatened salmon species in the Lower Nehalem. The crossing consisted of two six-foot diameter culverts, stacked on top of

transport and presented a velocity barrier. Interestingly, the new 40-foot span is “a modern-

day version of what existed in 1941,” when a railroad

Happy Thanksgiving from all your friends at Manzanita Grocery & Deli THANKSGIVING TURKEY DINNER SPECIALS Collaborative effort leads to continued success for Coho Salmon Project By Dave Fisher The Citizen

Four years into the program, the annual Waterhouse Falls Coho Salmon Project is beginning to take on a life of its own. This year’s harvest, because of drier weather than normal heading into fall, got a later than usual start. Fish begin migrating upstream when the first fall rains arrive, but this year the rains came late. “It was a small run across the board compared to previous years,” said Bill Campbell who spearheaded the volunteer effort four years ago to transport hatchery-produced Coho salmon at the end of their life cycle to Garibaldi to be processed and canned for local food banks. This year, upwards of 250 to 275 fish were pulled from the life-cycle monitoring station at Waterhouse Falls on the North Fork Nehalem with another 111 fish were provided by the Nehalem Hatchery. From there, they were transported on ice, as in years past, to the Tillamook Bay Boathouse canning facility in Garibaldi where owner Darus Peake processes the fish at cost. Also in cold storage is another 6,000 pounds of tuna provided by the Oregon Tuna Classic held in Garibaldi. The result is high protein food for families in need during difficult times. Because of family obligations, Campbell wasn’t as involved with the effort as much as he has been in previous years, but no problem; fellow “Smiley Brother” Mike Ehlen coordinated the effort. Asked about the Smiley Brothers distinction, Ehelen said, “We were sitting around the dinner table at the Campbell’s house and talking about what a great feeling this gives to all involved. It really does put a smile on your face and in your heart. Peggy Campbell (Bill’s wife) suggested, ‘You guys ought to just call yourselves the Smiley Brothers.’ That turned out to be one of those ‘why not’ moments and it’s been Smiley Brothers ever since.” Initially a foursome, including Campbell, Ehlen, Peake and Derek Wiley, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife team leader for the salmon monitoring project, the Smiley ranks have swelled and includes “sisters.” This should be a great media year for the project, as well, says Ehlen. Oregonian reporter Lori Tobias is planning a feature article and KGW-TV’s Grant McOmie is on board with a segment for a future show on his weekly program, Grant’s Getaways, that airs Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. In addition to the added exposure, the Smiley Brothers continue to forge new partnerships. Neah-Kah-Nie High School got into the act the past couple of years designing and producing labels for the canned product and affixing them to the cans. Students and staff have become deeply committed to this effort. Last year, art students, following a field trip to Waterhouse Falls, produced the first annual poster commemorating the effort. Another is currently in the works. NKN High students Wayne Moore and Josh Landry filmed the harvest, took still photos and interviewed people for their senior project and also for McOmie’s program. “It’s a new wrinkle this fall and we’re excited about their participation,” said Campbell. “Wayne and Josh will be working on this season’s effort from start to finish. Not a bad thing to toss onto their resume for college,” Ehlen added. In 2011, the Rotary Club of North Tillamook County signed on to help facilitate tax-deductible contributions through its organization, which is a 501(c)3. Another “new

wrinkle” this year is online contributions through PayPal via the club’s Facebook page. So far, so good. “In order to accomplish our goal of getting this prime fish meat canned, labeled and delivered to the food banks, we need cold, hard cash,” said Ehlen. “The way this season is shaping up, we will need about $8,000 more to do this. This gig sells itself and most folks eager to make a contribution.” Recipients of canned the canned fish include the North Tillamook County Food Bank, Tillamook County Central Food Bank, and Nestucca Valley School Children’s Knapsack Lunch Program. In addition, Nehalem Bay House and Kilchis House assisted living facilities received 75 pounds of fresh salmon fillets for their cooks to prepare for meals. The donors to this program have been many and varied. Among the larger donors are the Safeway Foundation, Bank of Astoria, Oregon Hunters Association, Eugene Schmuck Foundation, Rotary International, Tumac Lumber, Tillamook Creamery, and Rosenberg’s . “Our own local merchants have also been extremely generous year after year,” said Ehlen. “Most are repeat donors. The individual donor list is large and growing.” Other key players include the Tillamook Bay Boathouse and ODFW. “Without the Boathouse taking on the processing and canning of these fish with zero profit, we could not do this at all,” Ehlen noted. “There is, however, a good benefit for the Boathouse. It keeps their employees busy during a slack time in between fishing seasons. This is a welcome addition, especially during these hard economic times. “The partnership with ODFW is also key. Hats off to Joe Watkins at the North Fork Fish Hatchery, and to his team for sending fish our way and working closely with us to assure maximum efficiency. Hats off, also, to Derek Wiley and his team. They operate the Life Cycle Monitoring Program at the Waterhouse Falls Fish Trap. Fish are identified, measured, tagged and recorded. This is a big job. Sometimes hundreds of fish per day and more can go through this location. We’ve had as many as 140 hatchery fish to transport in a single day.” In October, the Waterhouse Falls Coho Salmon Project was acknowledged by the Tillamook Futures Council at its annual award ceremony held, this year, in Manzanita. The Smiley Brothers and friends received a Strategic Visions Awards in the category of Health and Human Services. The honor gave them yet another reason to smile. “I did some math and calculated that approximately 52,000 protein meals have been gathered and distributed to date under this program,” said Ehlen. “We think this is a working model that can be replicated where there are other hatcheries and like-minded communities. We are currently working to expand the program in that regard.” Contributions are still being sought for this year’s effort. There are two ways to contribute – through the Rotary Club of North Tillamook County’s Facebook page with a PayPal account or by sending a check made out to the North Tillamook County Rotary Foundation, Inc. earmarked for the Salmon Fund. The address is P.O. Box 74, Manzanita, OR, 97130. Contributors will receive a letter and receipt for tax purposes. Additionally, all donors are eligible to receive the commemorative poster designed and produced by Neah-Kah-Nie High School students.

Mary Stupfel

Mary Alice Kelley Stupfel, loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, nana, sister, aunt and dear friend, passed away November 8, 2012 near Manzanita, Oregon. Mary was born in McMinnville on July 17, 1922 to Lenora (Brown) & Earl J. Kelley. Mary’s early education was in McMinnville, St. Mary’s Academy in Portland and she graduated from McMinnville High School. After finishing Northwestern School of Commerce in Portland, Mary worked for McCracken Brothers Motor Freight in Portland. Later, she worked for the Telephone Register newspaper, currently known as the News Register, in McMinnville. During World War II, Mary joined the U.S. Navy and served on Treasure

Island in San Francisco. Yeoman First Class, Mary Kelley, was discharged from the Navy shortly after she married Captain Clifford Stupfel of the U.S. Army Air Corps on July 24, 1945. After Cliff earned his engineering degree, the young family made their first homes in Portland. The family moved to Seattle in 1952 where Mary was very active in her local community. She served in many leadership positions in the PTA, the Boy Scouts of America, as well as President of the Mothers Club at St. Joseph’s Grade School. With a family of seven children, Mary and Cliff returned to the Portland area in 1962 and joined The Madeleine Parish. She retired in 1975 after working ten years for George J. Scott and began a new career in the arts. Mary studied graphite drawing and watercolor painting at Marylhurst College and took further watercolor classes by northwest and nationally known artists. During these watercolor classes, Mary discovered her passion to paint flowers in abstract designs. Time stood still for Mary whenever she picked up her watercolor brushes and, over the years, she created an extensive collection of work on display and treasured in private homes across the United States. In 1989, Mary and Cliff built their retirement home on the Oregon Coast. As an active member in her local community, Mary joined the Palette Puddlers Artist Group, Friends of Music, Women’s Club of Manzanita, Friends of the Library, Manzanita Artists, and Manzanita Golf Club, as well as dinner and luncheon bridge groups. She was very active in St. Peter the Fisherman Parish and in fundraising for the Senior Room at NCRD and the Eugene Schmuck Foundation. Mary is survived by her children, Tom (Nancy) of Vancouver, Kathy (Jim Hickey) of Manzanita; Jane (Dick Flemming) of University Place, Mike (Patty) of Kirkland, Molly (David MacFarland) of Issaquah, Dan (Ginny) of Hillsboro, her daughter-in-law Mary Kay Stupfel of Milwaukee, sixteen grandchildren, twenty-three great grandchildren, her sister Kathleen Stephan of San Diego, nieces and nephews. Mary was preceded in death by her loving husband, Cliff, their son Patrick and her parents. Mary will be greatly missed by all of her family and friends. Her quick wit could tilt a room to laughter with that special twinkle in her eye afterwards. Mary will be remembered for her gracious hospitality, generous spirit, artistic endeavors as a painter, seamstress, home decorator and creative chef. She lived her life with elegant grace with her greatest love for her family. Her legacy will forever live on through each of her family members and friends. Funeral Services will begin at 11:30 a.m. Friday, Nov. 16, at St. Peter the Fisherman Catholic Church, Highway 101, Arch Cape beginning with the rosary and continuing with the Mass of Christian Burial. Reception following the mass will be held at Pine Grove Community Center, 225 Laneda Ave, Manzanita. Internment will be Saturday, 1 p.m. at St. James Cemetery in McMinnville. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests remembrances may be made to St. Peter the Fisherman Maintenance Fund, or the Rinehart Clinic in Wheeler. The family wishes to thank all of Mary’s friends for their prayers and support, and the kind and compassionate care of the staff at the Nehalem Bay House and the Tillamook hospice nurses and aid Jan, Didi, Caroline and Kimberly.

Being a fan of a winning team is always fun and I guess the best I ever enjoyed was the 1960 Rose Bowl game. When we were living in Seattle, my wife and I had some tickets that I won in a contest put on by a local radio station. It included a flight to Pasadena in a chartered plane and a night in a fancy hotel. On Sunday, we saw the big parade and then had good seats at the game. We just happened to be seated right in the middle of the Wisconsin cheering section and were pretty stifled until the first quarter started and the Huskies were suddenly up by two touchdowns. What happened after the game was something that you would never see again. A bus took us out to the airport where the charter plane was sitting all by itself next to the road. We climbed the portable stairs and were all sitting in the dark in the plane when the crew finally showed up. The passengers were all happy and it was a fun flight home. Yes, being a sports fan is fun when you are winning, but isn’t that kind of like life itself?

which contribute lowering metabolism. So, you see even though one may not gain very much weight from Turkey Day to January 1, some other things change and can be a bit sneaky. The one pound holiday weight gain syndrome is of real concern: We have all heard ourselves say and we have heard our friends say it. Every year we get fatter and fatter, but often we don’t feel like we can put our fingers on the source. I am going to make a suggestion (I am sure you knew that was coming). I am not going to suggest that you should not eat any goodies over the holidays or even over indulge once or twice. I try to practice what I preach and I personally enjoy the holidays and all the wonderful fares and treats. I would hate to miss that. Family and friends gathering around food and spirits is delightful. I want you to enjoy the holidays, but I also want you to start 2013 feeling good. Decide now to follow these guideline and we will do just fine.


• Drink lots of water. Water naturally helps you not eat much, sleep better, process food and being hydrated

burns more fat. • Eat slowly and appreciate. Take a deep breath and control your excitement when you see all those goodies. • Do not skip meals. This messes with your metabolism and leads you to overeating at the next meal. • Protein and simple carbs: If you are going to “pig-out” reach for the proteins and the simple carbs. • Workout in the morning or anytime you can but if you work out in the morning, you will perk up your metabolism for the whole day. I have an annual tradition of a harder than average workout on the big eating days of the holidays. I remember back when I worked at Gold’s Gym in Portland, one of my most favorite workouts was the morning of Thanksgiving. I would walk into the gym and the energy was fantastic and every treadmill or elliptical was taken, you had to wait in line and everyone was just having a blast. So, go for a long walk or hike or jog, get those engines revving. You can add weight training to build muscles; they increase your metabolism even more. • Friends: Hook up with some friends and make it a group effort. The more, the merrier! Lastly, happy holidays!

Dr. Ironside, sleep specialist, added to Rinehart Clinic’s list of visiting specialists The Rinehart Clinic is pleased to announce that Dr. Keith Ironside, pulmonologist/sleep specialist, is seeing patients, reviewing in-home sleep studies and assisting resident providers with ensuring that patients are getting a good night’s sleep. “Sleep apnea is one of the biggest issues for many of our patients,” said Dr. Harry Rinehart. “And many times, once we are able to help our patients to sleep well, other health issues dramatically improve.” Through generous donations, The Rinehart Clinic has purchased state-of-the-

art portable polysomnograms for in-home sleep studies to assist with diagnosing sleep apnea and other sleep problems. “This saves our patients the time, cost and hassle of going to a sleep lab. They can sleep in their own beds and we can get the data to assess their sleep issues,” said Rinehart. “Combined with Dr. Ironside’s expertise being available right here at the clinic, too, provides an even higher level of care.” Ironside has been practicing medicine for over 30 years and is a nationally recognized sleep specialist who has developed several

sleep disorder programs in the Pacific Northwest since 1977. He has practiced extensively in critical care and pulmonary medicine before dedicating himself fulltime to sleep medicine and specializes in diagnosing and treating patients of all ages with complex sleep issues. Ironside has traveled extensively throughout the world learning how various environmental factors affect sleep disorders. He is on the medical staff, for sleep study testing, at Providence St. Vincent Hospital, Providence Portland Hospital, and Providence Milwaukee Hospital.

As part of its mission, The Rinehart Clinic’s primary care providers are committed to assisting patients with all aspects of their health. By working side-byside with specialists such as Dr. Ironside, and other specialists from Providence Healthcare, the clinic strives to provide the highest quality of healthcare available to all in our community.

n Roy Creek From page 1 trestle, prior to the installation of the culverts, spanned the creek allowing it to run free underneath, Nehalem Mayor Shirley Kalkhoven told the Citizen. Although, Tillamook County has jurisdiction authority for Foss Road, the Roy Creek crossing design took into account a multitude of additional interests. Aside from the road itself, the design also considered the railroad that is owned and operated by the Port of Tillamook now under contract to the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad, a waterline for the nearby cities of Manzanita and Wheeler, a Nehalem Telephone Company communication line, and a WCI Cable fiber optic cable line. Coming up with a design early on that met the criteria for an adequate railroad crossing and followed the construction timeline (less

n Election From page 1 Manzanita, Nehlem and Wheeler, Phipps garnered nearly two-thirds of the votes. Baertlein carried the rest of the county. There were 39 write-ins. In the other countywide race for Sheriff incumbent Sheriff Andy Long won handily with 86% of the vote (9500 votes). Challenger Bill Spidal got 13% (1433 votes). There were 64 write-ins. In north Tillamook County - Manzanita, Nehalem and Wheeler - Long received nearly four times as many votes as Nehalem area resident Spidal. In Manzanita, Mayor Garry Bullard, who ran unopposed, was re-elected to another two-year term garnering 243 votes. City councilors Mike Scott and Hans Tonjes will remain on the city council. Each received 208 votes. Shirley Kalkhoven, Nehalem mayor since 2004, will remain in that position. Running unopposed, Kalkhoven received 107 votes.

In Wheeler, Stevie Burden was re-elected mayor with 133 votes. Virgil Staben, Karen Matthews and Bill Mullen were the top three vote getters for positions on the city council. The outcomes in both county-wide races roughly mirrored the responses in the Headlight Herald’s admittedly unscientific impromptu online poll. The poll showed Baertlein winning the commissioner’s race, and Long the sheriff’s (by a big margin). With recent redistricting, state legislative races in Tillamook County were a bit confusing. Redistricting split the county in half; the south half of the county— all the unincorporated area south and west of the city of Tillamook—wound up in different state House and Senate districts. House District 10 is mostly Lincoln County (and both the Republican and Democratic candidates were from Lincoln County), and Senate District 5 stretches all the

way to Coos Bay and North Bend (and the candidates were from Coos Bay and North Bend). The north half of Tillamook County, including all seven incorporated cities, is still part of Senate District 16, represented by State Sen. Betsy Johnson (who wasn’t up for election this year) and House District 32, represented by Rep. Deborah Boone (who was). Most of the district’s population is in Clatsop County. Boone won re-election, with 68.49% of the vote district-wide (17,914 votes) and 68.95% of the vote in Tillamook County (4978 votes). Boone carried every precinct in North County. Boone, a Democrat from Cannon Beach, was opposed by Constitution Party candidate Jim Welsh, from Manzanita, and Libertarian Perry Roll, from Astoria. There was no Republican candidate. Welsh, who won the Republican primary in House District 32, subsequently quit to become the Constitution Party candidate, and the state GOP didn’t run a replace-

We accomplished so much together, I am extremely proud. It has been an honor to serve the City of Nehalem and its citizens.” The only item on his “bucket list,” which remains to be accomplished is a new city hall building for Nehalem, an ongoing process that Nitzsche has been involved with the past several months. At its regular monthly meeting held Nov. 5, the Nehalem City Council by consensus has decided to wait a few weeks before looking for a new city manager, according to Mayor Shirley Kalkhoven, who praised Nitzsche for his service to the community. “Eventually, I think we’ll contact the League of Oregon Cities to help us conduct a search for a replacement for Michael,” Kalkhoven told the Citizen. In the interim, City Recorder Dale Shafer will assume the duties of city manager.

habitat will be restored and reopened,” Hemingway told the crowd assembled for the dedication, most of whom boarded the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad train in Wheeler that made the 20-minute trek to Roy Creek County Park. “This just show what can be done when people at the local community level, stakeholders and leaders, are encouraged and aided by government agencies at all levels. Bottom up and grassroots thinking, aided by county, state and federal experts and funds. What an idea…very Oregonian,” Hemingway noted. Team and funding partners in the project included the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Lower Nehalem Watershed Council, Tillamook Estuary Partnership, Oregon Department Fish and Wildlife, American Rivers, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Port of Tillamook Bay, Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad, and Tillamook County Public Works.

the Port of Tillamook Bay railroad. This allowed for much more flexibility in construction timelines, and renewed interest in getting the fish passage project finished once and for all. Tillamook County Public Works in partnership with the LNWC, solicited bids and awarded the job to the engineering firm Parametrix, based in Portland, whose bid came in at $654,000. Work commenced earlier this spring and the project, completed in October, came in on budget. In recognizing the “people who made it happen,” Tillamook County Commissioner Mark Labhart singled out Mayor Kalkhoven as the “behind the scenes” person who helped keep the project alive the past decade. Hemingway was more excited for the fish. “The completion of this project marks one more advance in the restoration of fish passage and the preservation of upstream habitat in the Nehalem basin.

The Meditation and Paint program was started by Tarr in 2006. Participants gather at the Center for Contemplative Arts or a private studio for guided and then a silent meditation, and then choose paints to paint in silence to reveal how the meditation informs the paintings. Process paintings are often nonrepresentational, soulful and surprising. The session this year have been supported, in part, by a grant from the Tillamook County Cultural Coalition.

about how the small farms movement is thriving in Oregon. In 1990, Stephenson said there were 12 farmers markets in Oregon; now there are 140. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms are selling directly to consumers, cutting out the middle men, and the new Farm Direct law allows small farmers to sell up to $20,000 of food that they grow and process, such as jams, jellies, syrups, and pickled vegetables directly to consumers without a license or inspection. This expands farmers’ options for income, use of abundant crops, and offseason sales. Additionally, the Poultry Bill includes a “1000-bird exemption,” which allows small farmers to slaughter and sell directly to consumers up to 1000 poultry per year without licensing. “Small farms create healthy communities,” said Stephenson said, noting that farming was prominent

cation of a Caretaker.” In 2009, he won the Oregon Literary Arts’ Stewart H. Holbrook Literary Legacy Award for his contributions to Oregon history and literature. He lives in South Beach and teaches English and journalism at Newport High School. He’s currently working on a novel about teaching in a public high school.

An extraordinary cake for the special occasions in your life

“Everything in moderation, including moderation.” – Julia Childs Every once in a while, it is time to make something extraordinary. My husband’s family recently congregated here in Manzanita for the first time in years. It was time to bust my mixer out of the closet and let The us do our magic together. As you might Golightly know, the mixer and Gourmet I are trying to spend Dana Zia less and less time together. It is better on my waistline, but sometimes you just have to toss moderation to the wind, (and rain) and bake up a storm. But, what was it going to be? It just so happened that we were in Hood River recently and came back with a car full of fruit. One of the amazing fruits that Oregon and Washington are known for is its pears. In fact, the Northwest is the only geo-

Gingered pear upside-down cake

For the gooey topping: 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter 1/2 cup of brown sugar 3 teaspoons of cinnamon 4-5 medium juicy pears, I used bartletts

graphical area in the United States that produces perfect pears. Pears are the #1 tree fruit crop in Oregon, rated 10th producer in the nation. What a unique distinction. I love living here as much as I love pears. What isn’t there to love about pears? I love their buttery texture and how juicy sweet they are. So, when I decided to do something special for the special people in my life the pears glowing bright on my counter screamed, “me!” Yes, pears it is. It so happened that I also had this recipe that I have been wanting to try for a few years and so everything was right. Magic

happened. This cake is simply amazing. I knew it was going to be good but no, this cake is outstanding! It is moist, not too sweet, beautiful and very fragrant. All of my favorite things. Please do not be put off of this recipe by the long instructions. Anybody can do it. It just takes patience and love to create this cake. One thing to be aware of is that the baking time is an hour and 45 minutes so make sure and work that into your time management scheme. I highly recommend this cake to be added to your table for the upcoming holidays. I wouldn’t wait until then to make it though, it is full of all those luscious fall flavors we love. It is a dense, rich cake that can easily serve 12 people. Serve warm with gingered whip cream for those special people in your world that are truly special.

For the batter: 1 cup of butter (2 sticks) at room temperature 3/4 cup of brown sugar 2 tablespoons of fresh ginger, grated 3 large farm eggs 2/3 cups of unsulphured molasses 3 cups of unbleached flour 1 - 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder 1 - 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda 1/2 teaspoon of salt 1 - 1/2 cups of buttermilk Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and lightly butter a 9-inch spring form pan. Cut out a piece of parchment paper the size of the bottom of the pan and line the inside of it. Now you can get busy making magic. To make the topping, melt the butter in a saucepan and add the sugar and cinnamon and mix well. Pour into the lined pan and carefully spread evenly. Next, quarter your pears, core them and then slice them in 1/4 - inch slices, lengthwise. (If you cut a slice and keep it connected at the top of the pear to the other slices, it makes it easy to fan.) Place the fanned pears in a circle in the middle of the pan in the caramel stuff, then artfully arrange the rest of the pear slices on the outside edge. Keep layering the pears until you have at least four pears in there. Time to make the batter. Toss the butter and brown sugar in the mixer and cream on a medium speed for 3-5 minutes till the mixture take on a silky smooth texture. Add in the grated ginger and mix a little longer. With the mixer still going, add one egg at a time until it is incorporated then repeat with the other eggs. Slowly add the molasses and beat until it’s very fluffy. The mix may look like it is “breaking” and granulated but no worries. It will all work out. In your favorite mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, soda and salt until well combined. Turn the mixture back on slow and add a cup of the flour mix, then a 1/2 cup of the butter milk and let mix a bit, then repeat until all mixed together. Do not over mix, as soon it is all incorporated turn off that blender! Pour carefully into the cake pan over the pears and smooth out. The pan will be almost full, amazingly enough. Tuck the cake in the oven on the center rack to bake for 1 hour and 45 minutes. (Yes, you will have time to clean up the kitchen and organize the garage.) The cake will be done when the center does not jiggle and a long pick comes out clean. Cool for 10-15 minutes on a wire rack before taking off the cake ring. Place a plate on the exposed bottom of the cake and carefully flip upside down onto the plate. Remove the cake pan bottom and tenderly peel off the parchment paper and voila…a beautiful, yummy, delicious cake that is a wonder to all. Serve warm or at room temperature with gingered whip cream. (One teaspoon of ground ginger and 2 tablespoons of sugar per pint of whipped cream.)

Alternative Gift Market is Dec. 1

Nehalem Bay area hosts three gift fairs

Check out all the local and third world opportunities to buy Christmas gifts for your loved ones, gifts that fully embody the meaning of giving, at the Alternative Gift Market on Saturday, Dec. 1, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Pine Grove Community Center in Manzanita. Americans, even in bad economic times, have access to resources that most of the world desperately need but cannot afford. Many people on shoppers’ holiday lists don’t really need more “stuff.” Instead, we can choose to make tax-deductible donations, either to local non-profit organizations, or to international projects. We can share with our friends and families the gift of hope, by donating in their names. The stories of how these gifts are helping people and the planet make one feel the holiday spirit in the truest sense. At the Alternative Gift Market, you will select a local or an international project, a goat for a family in Haiti, or bicycles for health care workers in Africa, or planting fruit trees for the rural poor. Your gift will improve an impoverished family’s life in a long-term way. Or, you choose a local non-profit organization, supporting local causes, such as CART’M, LNCT, local food banks and more, right here where we live. Shoppers receive a gift card for each item, which they give as a Christmas present to a friend or family member. Your gift is not material, but knowing that someone else’s life, far away or close to home, has been enhanced or empowered. Whether you are passionate about women’s health, children in need, protecting and restoring ecosystems, food security, peace and justice, or medical care for people in desperate need, there is something on the 2012 shopping list that will speak to your heart. More volunteers needed As in past years, lots of caring volunteers

By Victoria Stoppiello For the Citizen

The Alternative Gift Market, set for Saturday, Dec. 1, is an opportunity for holiday shoppers to give a gift with special meaning to local nonprofits or those truly in need around the world. Courtesy photo are needed to make this event a success. If you volunteer for a global project, you educate yourself from the simple materials provided, and then spend the day (or half-day) at the Alternative Gift Market. Your job is to talk to shoppers and explain your projects to them. The 2011 AGM raised $8,439, 75 percent in support of local non-profits and 25 percent in support of international projects. Those donations have contributed an amazing abundance to the well-being of people and places in need on this planet. Questions on how the market works? Want to volunteer in support of this annual one-day event, making a difference in the world? At least six more volunteers are needed. Please email Josh Uithof at joshuithofua@hotmail. com, or call Lucy Brook at (503) 368-3733.

Last year, three Nehalem Bay area organizations experimented with publicizing and coordinating their holiday gift fairs. It was such a success, they’re doing it again on Saturday, Dec. 1. Great lunches will be available. The Nehalem Methodist Church is hosting its 42nd annual Chowder and Pie Lunch. The White Clover Grange will offer locally raised sausage and sauerkraut, vegan chili, plus baked goods. The Alternative Gift Market’s several soup and bread options will benefit the North County Food Bank. You can top off your day by attending the area’s annual holiday party at the Nehalem City Hall. Tickets are $20 each for the buffet dinner and available at Nehalem Lumber, the Pizza Garden and Mirror Images. All three bazaars will be held from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Their locations and offerings: White Clover Grange, 36585 Hwy 53, about 2 miles east of Hwy 101, landmarked by a humorous cow sculpture, will emphasize locally produced food items including candles from Planeterry Honey; soaps and skin bars from Bee Happy; home grown lamb, beef, chicken and pork from Lance’s Farm Vittles; salves, teas, vinegars and tinctures from Tallwoman

Tonics; and crafts, plants and knitted items from Suzanne’s Garden. In addition, local vendors will be selling handmade aprons, dishcloths, hats, handspun yarn, homegrown garlic braids, jam, collectibles, plus holiday wreaths and tote bags made from recycled materials. 4-H members will be selling crafts and baked goods; Fire Mountain School will offer holiday cards with images donated by local artists; and the Lower Nehalem Community Trust will feature its “Our heritage, Our legacy” 2013 calendar. To top off the Grange bazaar, a quilt and a leg of lamb will be raffled. Proceeds will be used to maintain and improve the historic Grange building, keeping it available for community use. The 8th Annual Alternative Gift Market, Pine Grove Community Center, 225 Laneda Avenue, Manzanita, provides a different direction in meaningful holiday giving. Shoppers make a contribution to any of a large variety of local nonprofits or worldwide projects. They then receive a gift card (one for each donation) to give friends and

loved ones to let them know a gift was made in their name to a cause that will benefit others. Local groups represented include Lower Nehalem Watershed Council, CASA, Food Roots, Lower Nehalem Community Trust, CartM, Fire Mountain School, and Rinehart Clinic. In 2011, three quarters of the funds raised were for local nonprofits and one-quarter for international projects. The market is sponsored by Fulcrum Community Resources, whose mission is to create sustainability in north Tillamook County. Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church, 42nd Annual Christmas Bazaar & Clam Chowder Luncheon, 10th & A Streets, Nehalem. This longrunning bazaar has several traditional components including a “boutique” of handmade gifts and crafts, Granny’s Attic rummage sale area, potted plants ready for giving, a bakery and candy table, and particularly special, a kid’s shopping area, where children can purchase gifts for others at very affordable prices. All proceeds from the Methodist bazaar go to the church’s charitable work, much of which is right in Tillamook County – Healthy Families, Good News Club, and Marie Mills, as well as others in this country and overseas.
