No highway closure after all, ODOT says

Little hands at work

Complete closure of US 101 at the Neahkahnie project site will not happen By Dave Fisher The Citizen

Complete closure of US Hwy 101 during the installation of mountainside rock screening on Neahkahnie this spring has given way to a possible lane closure only at the project site. Any lane closures will begin on May 5 or later, according to Oregon Department of Transportation officials, but as far as Nehalem Elementary a complete closure of the students are playing a highway for two to three days as originally anticipated big part in the creation that will not happen.

Out of 287 public and charter high schools in Oregon, NeahKah-Nie High School ranked 17th, and 1,607 out of 19,400 high schools nationally in a recently published US News and World Report survey of best high schools. Neah-Kah-Nie School District Superintendent Paul Erlebach broke the news to the high school staff and school district employees last week, congratulating them on the high ranking. “Great job staff from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade,” said Erlebach in his email. The survey ranked schools in four key areas – student/ teacher ratio, college readiness, and average math and reading proficiency. Neah-Kah-Nie

High’s 12:1 student/teacher ratio is among the lowest in Oregon. The state average is 21:1. The school was above the Oregon average in college readiness based on the percentage of 12th graders who were tested and passed Advanced Placement (AP) exams. In reading proficiency, NKN placed above the state average, while in math NKN placed near the state average based on the performance of the subjects on the state exit exam.

Visitors center set to get finishing touches By Dave Fisher The Citizen

Four months since it was officially dedicated in January, the Manzanita Visitors Center is still a work in progress. At its meeting of the general membership April 21, the Manzanita Chamber of Commerce received an update from Manzanita City Manager Jerry Taylor on what the city is doing as far as finishing touches, in particular to the exterior. Among the features to be added, said Taylor, are a drinking fountain near the restrooms, an improved and more “natural looking” exterior sign, addition of a small deck or patio off the rear door, and

a lighted window box on the building’s south wall’s gable which will be lit 24/7 with changing seasonal displays. “So far, the visitors center has done what we wanted it to do,” said Taylor in his remarks to Chamber members. “You guys really took the lead on this and deserve the credit.” With the addition of the public restrooms on the west end of Laneda Ave. and closer to the beach, Taylor noted that the usage of the existing restroom at the corner of Fifth St. and Laneda has fallen off dramatically while the new facility is seeing much more use. “Apparently, it’s all a matter of location, location, location,” Taylor noted. Related

to restroom usage, Taylor also noted the city supplied 96,000 “doggie bags” last year in its ongoing effort to keep the beaches and sidewalks free of waste. “It has gotten to be quite expensive because we go through a lot of doggie bags.” As for dogs, they are no longer allowed inside the visitors center, said Chamber President Kay Covert. As a result, the Chamber is looking to install a tie-up area outside its facility for visitors with canine friends. “Anything you can think of that you would like to see at the visitors center, let us know,” said Covert, who described the center as a “tremendous success” so far with more than 1,500 signature

in the guest book, including that of former Washington governor Christine Gregoire. “It has been a welcome addition,” said Covert of the new visitors center, “and we thank the city for making this happen. It makes you wonder how we ever got along without it.”

Among the changes coming to the visitors center is a new sign, one that will have a more “natural” look and which will be placed on the other side of the sidewalk leading to the main entrance. Photo by DaveFisher

Tillamook EDC talking marketing and branding By Dave Fisher The Citizen

Think Tillamook County and one often thinks of cheese. It’s a brand that has worked well for the city of Tillamook for decades, but not so much for the rest of the county, says John HopeJohnstone, of the Corvallisbased HPR Internet Marketing Agency, who was in town recently speaking before the Manzanita Chamber of Commerce. Hope-Johnstone accompanied Dan Biggs, director of Tillamook County’s Economic Development Council (EDC), to update the local business community on the EDC’s effort to help develop tourism and branding strategies for Tillamook County. Hope-Johnstone was brought on board in February as a

consultant to assist the council with that effort by determining which firm to hire to conduct a brand analysis and needs assessment for county tourism marketing. Total Destination Marketing was hired to perform that work and you may have already become acquainted with the Tualatin-based firm as it is currently seeking opinions and insights of stakeholders throughout the county through an online survey. Total Destination Marketing has worked to promote tourism in a number of Oregon cities, including Astoria, Corvallis, Alsea, Forest Grove and Eugene and has worked with Travel Oregon, charged with promoting tourism in the state, as has Hope-Johnstone. Tillamook County commissioners at their April 16

meeting approved a threeyear intergovernmental agreement with the EDC to manage tourism promotion funds generated by a countywide transient lodging tax that voters approved in November. In addition, commissioners approved the EDC’s recommendations for appointments to its ninemember Tourism Advisory Council tasked with helping with the facilitation of Tillamook County’s Tourism Development Plan. Three of its members are from north Tillamook County – Shirley Kalkhoven, mayor of Nehalem; Kay Covert, president of the Manzanita Chamber of Commerce; and Big Wave Cafe owner Brian Williams. “Right now, we have $180 million earmarked for destination spending in the

county,” Biggs told the Manzanita Chamber audience. “The entire coast has roughly $1.5 billion…our goal is to have $400 million. The question is, how are we going to get there?” The $400 million, Biggs noted, would bring Tillamook County more in line with its neighbors to the north and south. As for a timetable, Biggs said he hopes the county arrives at the $400 million level by the end of the decade or six years from now. In describing what he called the “tourism economic engine,” Hope-Johnstone noted that presently 16.1 percent of all Tillamook County employment is related to tourism, nationally one in eight jobs is tourism related. “From 1991 to 2010,” said Hope-Johnstone, citing a study, “tourism on the central

ing communities with All Classical Portland programming, emergency alerts, and the ability to broadcast local coastal emergency information. “The city council and residents attending the Manzanita City Council meeting were thrilled to have All Classical broadcasting in their community,” says Jack Allen, All Classical CEO and president. “Building this new station is the culmination of a thorough and extensive effort to locate a suitable site in Manzanita, and we are happy to provide 24/7 commercial free classical music to more communities on the Oregon Coast.” “This will be great for our area,” Dave Dillon, public information officer for the Emergency Volunteer Corps of Nehalem Bay, told the Citizen. “We’ll have a strong signal for classical my favorite music, my favorite, plus the potential to use the signal in an extreme emergency to broadcast information to the surrounding communities.” All Classical Portland is Portland, Oregon’s classical radio station.

The survey will remain open until 9 p.m., May 9. Stakeholders and local residents are encouraged to email the survey link – www. TillamookSurvey – to colleagues to help generate the highest level of participation possible.

Beatles on Laneda, an evening of The Beatles music

Author Karen Karbo

Writers’ Series presents Karen Karbo on May 2

Author Karen Karbo will read from her book Julia Child Rules at the Hoffman Center in Manzanita at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 2. Karbo was originally scheduled Saturday, Feb. 15, but that event had to be rescheduled due to weather and road conditions. Please note it’s Friday rather than the normal Saturday event schedule. Many have dog-eared copies of “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” in our kitchens or fondly remember watching episodes of “The French Chef,” but what was behind the enormous appeal of this ungainly, unlikely woman, who became a superstar in midlife and changed our approach to food and cooking forever? With her characteristic wit and flair, Karen Karbo takes us for a spin through Julia’s life: including her years working for the OSS in Sri Lanka; her world class love affairs with Paris and Paul Child; and her decades as America’s beloved French chef. Karbo highlights important life lessons along the way: how to live by your whims, make the world your oyster, enjoy a life of full immersion. Karbo’s 2004 memoir, “The Stuff of Life,” about the last year she spent with her father before his death, was an NYT Notable Book, a People Magazine Critics’ Choice, a Books for a Better Life Award finalist, and a winner of the Oregon Book Award for Creative Non-fiction.

Don’t miss Beatles on Laneda, an evening of Beatles music on Saturday, May 3, 7 p.m., at the Hoffman Center in Manzanita. Hoffman Center Talent Show musicians Fred and Friends, Frank and The Ferrets, and The Sedona Fire Band will perform their versions of Beatles songs including: All My Loving, Here Comes the Sun, Don’t Pass Me By, Blackbird, Act Naturally and others. Singer-songwriter George Hoag, a musician since age 14, will be new to the Hoffman Center stage, playing acoustic guitar. If you were alive in 1964, please bring a photo of yourself from that era to share. Come early and join in the celebration. Your $10 admission will support the Hoffman Center’s Capital Campaign to “Finish Off the Hoff” to make it a more attractive and comfortable building for all types of artistic events. The Hoffman Center is

located at 594 Laneda, Manzanita. Further information is available at online or contact Tela Skinner at

Tim Josi – A solid record of accomplishments! Re-Elect Tim Josi

Experience, says Commissioner Tim Josi, is the difference By Dave Fisher The Citizen

Tim Josi is off and running again, seeking reelection as Tillamook County Commissioner. If he wins, this will be his fifth term in office. Ask Josi why he is running again and he’s quick to point out a number of reasons. First of all, and central to his campaign, is his longevity (16 years) and experience on the job as a county commissioner. “I’ve seen a lot as a county commissioner and have a good understanding basic issues confronting the county. I don’t have the learning curve that someone new to the position would have, and I am in a position to make a difference, to exercise influence,” he says. One of those “positions of influence” was his selection to the National Association of Counties (NACo) Board Executive Committee. Active in the association for 15 years, Josi was selected to represent the fifteen western states. “This puts me in a key position to work with our congressional delegation.

I was a state legislator for eight years and I’m in my 16th year as a county commissioner,” Josi points out. “I know something about state associations as well. I worked my way up the leadership ladder to be president of the Association of Oregon Counties in 2005. I know how effective states and counties can be when they work together.” Another reason Josi is seeking reelection is because there’s still much more to be done. Among the key issues: Increasing timber harvests in Tillamook County, job creation, improvements to infrastructure and raising awareness of domestic violence and sex abuse. In regard to state and federal forest, Josi sees himself as the go-to person because of his experience. “We need to find a responsible way to get our nation’s forests working again in an environmentally sensitive way. We are under using this important resource. Our neglect of this issue has resulted in overstocked and diseased forests.” It would also translate into more jobs and increase timber revenues for the county, he maintains.

With the passage of the countywide Transient Lodging Tax, Josi sees more jobs with the shot in the arm the tourist industry will receive as a result of more money earmarked for promoting tourism. “We’re better off than we were four years ago with the passage of the road bond and we’re seeing more development occurring in the north, south and central part of the county. However, we have seen a loss of our youths going elsewhere to find jobs. With the bolster to tourism that should make Tillamook County more attractive for the business community.” Josi sees the revival of downtown Tillamook with the addition of the new county library building and several other businesses, such as Safeway, TLC Credit Union and Pelican Pub Brewery as a step in the right direction. Infrastructure is critically important to the county’s economic success, says Josi, and continued improvements to roads, bridges, transit, high-speed broadband, water, sewer, renewable energy are a must. “We need to develop a

strategy to deal with immediate needs and a long-term strategy to maintain and build-out the infrastructures that make us competitive. We are not keeping up. A mix of funding sources is needed to make most projects affordable. Federal programs are often combined with local resources as a necessary component to making a project happen.” Finally Josi looks to

raise awareness of the problem of domestic violence and sex abuse in Tillamook County and be more proactive in breaking the cycle of abuse. “An equal relationship offers the opportunity for partners to share life’s triumphs and trials – to have a loving partner and friend. There is no room for violence or intimidation.” Josi, who turns 64 the day after the May election

The Hoffman Center held a special meeting Apr. 23 to solicit ideas about the center in the wake of a decision to close down their studio building. The building was shuttered due to concerns about its safety. “There was a strong desire that we not sell the studio building lot, but retain it for a future structure that would be compatible with and complimentary to the library,” said Center president David Dillon. “People felt that is what Lloyd and Myrtle Hoffman envisioned when they left their property and assets to the community.” “The building, located at 595 Laneda Ave, will still be torn down – and soon,” Dillon added. A group of attendees volunteered to form a Mortgage Retirement Committee to address paying down the mortgage on the Center’s main building, located at 594 Laneda Ave. Another group offered to form an Advi-

wonder how many folks the Postal Service have in their headquarters that will face those same consequences. Many years ago I had a really good job driving a home delivery milk truck. All the drivers were members of the Teamster’s Union and our jobs were protected as long as we did things in a business like manner. It was a pretty powerful union and I am sure nobody could see that those home delivery jobs would be mostly eliminated. Along with the product we delivered, we also had to collect the money and that was sometimes pretty tough when we had to tell someone they were too far in arrears for us to leave them some milk. Like most other drivers, we would occasionally dig in our own pockets to be sure those people facing bad times had milk for their kids. I remembered when I was a kid when my mother gave the milkman some money and apologized for not being able to pay the whole balance. He cheerfully told her that he fully understood and she was not alone in her concern. He was having the same problems. You are probably wondering why I compare the post office changes with the delivery of milk. I consider them things that we lived with and took for granted until they one day disappear. So, I guess we will see some changes and I have to admit that it won’t be a burden for our family, but those who come along won’t know how it used to be. And, they will have their own post office dealings to manage as the electronic world continues to spin every part of their lives.

His short stories and poetry have been published in literary magazines. He owns a market strategy consultancy, and lives with his wife, Aliza, in Portland. His

debut novel was chosen for publication during Forest Avenue Press’ 2013 open submission period. Following Berne’s reading and Q&A, Open Mic will feature up to nine local writers reading five minutes of their original work. Admission for the evening is $5. The Writers’ Series Reading Group will meet the Thursday prior to Dan’s reading, May 15th, 6:30 p.m. at the Manzanita Library. Everyone is invited to bring a friend to all events.

cal farms, farmers markets, farm stands, seafood at local docks, and other local food outlets and resources. Taking the print version of the North Coast Food Guide online makes it simple to connect consumers directly to the growing number of food producers on the north Oregon coast and in southwest Washington. Farmers, ranchers, fishermen, and value added/processed food producers are invited to create a listing free of charge, where they can give information about how and where their products can be purchased as well as additional information such as growing practices, certifications or opening hours. Customers seeking information about where to purchase local food direct from producers can either do a broad search by a category, such as eggs, meat or vegetables, or narrow the search to only producers located near where they live. The online North Coast Food Guide celebrates the incredible diversity and bounty of our coastal region,

strengthening the growing local food economy by supporting the hard-working food producers in the local area. Purchasing just some of your food from local producers can represent a significant investment in your local economy. You can help our farm and fishing industry grow even more by asking your favorite restaurants and stores to use locally grown food wherever possible. Restaurants, groceries, institutions and processors seeking locally-grown products can use the online guide to find farms and seafood outlets that are interested in selling to them.

Information about the Pacific Northwest’s wide array of wildflowers is just a swipe away with a new mobile app designed in part by botanists at Oregon State University. Available for iOS and Android devices, the Oregon Wildflowers app provides multimedia and information on nearly 1,000 wildflowers, shrubs and vines common in Oregon and adjacent areas in Idaho, Washington and California. For each plant, the app offers photographs, natural history, range maps and more. It works without an Internet connection once downloaded. “You can use the app no matter how remote your wanderings may take you,” said Linda Hardison, the director of the Oregon Flora Project, an OSU effort to develop resources, like the new app, to help people learn about plants in Oregon. “It’s designed for both

It will serve a broad spectrum of audiences, including policymakers, land use managers, scientists studying climate change, gardeners and the public, she added. The Oregon Flora Project website, at, contains additional information about all of Oregon’s 4,560 vascular plants, which have special tissues—known as lignified tissue—that allows water and minerals to flow through the plant. The Oregon Wildflowers app was developed in partnership with High Country Apps, which specializes in providing natural history information on mobile platforms.

Tillamook County Tsunami and Storm Ready status renewed

Gordon McCraw, Tillamook County’s Director of Emergency Management was notified the week of April 14th that the county’s designation of Tsunami Ready and Storm Ready had been renewed. Tillamook County first achieved the designation in 2005 and has continued to meet all requirements since then. The elements are reviewed every four years by the National Weather Service (NWS) Portland to ensure continued compliance. The NWS TsunamiReady and StormReady Programs are designed to help cities, towns, counties, universities and other large sites in coastal areas reduce the potential for disastrous tsunami or storm related consequences. Elements reviewed include Communication and Coordination, Warning Reception Methods, Local Warning Dissemination, Community Preparedness and Administrative Functions related to the above.

In a letter from NOAAs Warning Coordination Meteorologist at National Weather Service Portland dated April 10, 2014, Tyree Wilde stated, “Tillamook County, Oregon Emergency

Management, and Oregon’s Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) continue to do an outstanding job of promoting Tsunami awareness throughout the county.” County Emergency Manager Gordon McCraw said the

Seaweed a nutritional powerhouse & readily available About 160,000 years ago, the human diet went gourmet and started eating seaweed. This was about the time that all homo sapiens became coastal dwellers due to the fact the ocean contained a limitless source of nutrition including the super nutrient dense, salty seaweed. It turns out our ancestors were way smarter than us, as we hardly eat seaweed unless it is wrapped up in a sushi roll. It is interesting the note that seaweed contains the flavor profile of umami, which lights up the taste buds and ignites the response

to eat as much as possible. the most important of those In fact, seaweed is umami, nutrients is iodine, which is which MSG was missing in most originally grown every other food from before it was we eat. Iodine is turned into the imperative for chemical monster maintaining a it is now days. happy thyroid Our bodies have gland and its and evolved to highly hormones.

Chawan Mushi with shrimp and spring peas

Chawamnushi is a Japanese custard steamed in a cup. Chawan means tea cups or rice bowls, and mushi means steaming in Japanese. Simple enough, and amazingly delicate and addictive. 1.5 cups of dashi or chicken stock 1 tablespoon of sake(or use a white wine) A pinch of sugar 2 teaspoons of low-sodium soy sauce 1/4 teaspoon of sesame oil 1 tablespoon of finely grated fresh ginger root 3 large eggs 1/2 cup of fresh shelled peas OR 1/2 cup of frozen peas OR 1 cup of chopped fresh pea pods 3/4 cup of baby shrimp, cooked 1/2 cup of chopped shitake mushrooms 2 green onions, thinly sliced Pick out four small heat proof bowls of ramekins to make your Chawan Mushi and turn on the oven to 375 degrees. In a medium mixing bowl, combine dashi stock, one tablespoon of sake and sugar in a bowl and stir till the sugar is dissolved. Add the soy sauce, sesame oil and the ginger and mix some more. Measure out four tablespoons of this mix into a small cup and set it aside for now. Gently whisk the eggs up in a bowl. Do this so gently that you do not create any bubbles in it. Gently stir the bulk of the dashi mixture into the eggs. Divide the peas, shrimp, mushrooms and green onions among your four ramekins, saving out some for garnishes. Pour the egg mixture over the veggie-shrimp mixture. Get out a rectangle glass baking dish (9 x 13 works) and set the ramekins in there.

of youth in Japan as some claim the high consumption of seaweed contributes to the county’s super low incidence of diseases. I bet your thinking, “That’s great Dana, but I haven’t got the foggiest idea what to do with it.” My best suggestion is to get local herbalist Vivi Tallman’s “Seaweed Sprinkles” and sprinkle it on everything. (Her number is 503-3688255, and she also sells at farmers markets in the

area.) I love the stuff and find it easy to use. You can also pulverize nori sheets in a blender and put it on the table with the salt and pepper. You’ll find yourself reaching for it a lot! Also familiarize yourself with the seaweeds of the world and its culinary uses. (I found it interesting that there is not any known poisonous seaweed to humans and it is located in all oceans.) Start finding ways of incorporating it into your cooking. Get

playful and curious here, it will pay off. I decided to do just that and have been playing with many types of seaweed in the kitchen. I started making dashi, which is a Japanese soup stock made with kombu seaweed (which is kelp, yup, kelp). It is the base of many Japanese’s dishes. I also made a fish soup out of the dashi that was wonderful. Have fun playing with your (sea) veggies!

Set in the oven and fill the baking dish with water till is about halfway of the ramekins. Bake at 375 for five minutes then turn the heat down to 325 and bake for 25 minutes and check for doneness. The custard is set when it is still quite “jiggly” and if you poke it with a toothpick or knife it produced clear dashi like fuild. If it isn’t quite done yet, keep baking and checking every five minutes so you don’t overcook it. Garnish with the saved veggies and shrimp then add one tablespoon per ramekin of the reserved dashi mix and serve up with a smile.

How to make Dana Dashi

This is Dana Dashi, other words, not traditional. If you want traditional, remove the ginger and add bonito flakes. You can get the kombu and other sea veggies at Mother nature’s and bonito flakes at an Asian store in Portland or order online.

Get out a nice stainless steel pot and place the kombu, mushrooms and ginger in it. Cover with the water and soak for 30 minutes. (No heat.) Set the saucepan over medium heat until the water just starts to boil. Remove the seaweed and keep the ginger in it and simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes. When it is cool, pour the liquid through a fine mesh strainer or two layers of cheesecloth and into a bowl. Ta daaa! You have Dana dashi. That wasn’t hard, was it? Store it in the fridge for up to one week. Compost the strained out stuff.
