MEMORIAL DAY 2014
Remembering America’s fallen heroes
Sunny skies prevailed for the Memorial Day observance this year at Nehalem American Legion Cemetery near Manzanita, a far cry from the wind and rain that dampened last year’s event. Upwards of 200 people turned out for the event and listened to speaker of the day
Owen Nicholson, a World War II veteran, recount his experience in the South Pacific during the war. As is custom, the graves of veterans were decorated with flags by members of Nehalem Bay Fire and Rescue, along with Nehalem area Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts.
July 4 fireworks fundraising effort begins in earnest
$17,000 is the goal organizers hope to reach for this year’s show

The committee is a private effort and relies on donations from individuals, families, businesses and groups. No city funds are spent on the display The Committee needs to raise $17,000. The show itself will cost $15,000, but another $2,000 is needed to cover site preparation, security, and cleanup.

CARTM’s Jonathan Feder removes metal roofing panels from the Hoffman Center Studio Building in advance of its demolition. Hoffman Center Photo
The Hoffman House Studio building in Manzanita will be torn down Monday morning, June 2 starting at 9 a.m. Built in 1938, and modified a number of times after that, the building belonged to the late Lloyd and Myrtle Hoffman. It was bequeathed to the community in 2004 to support the arts, education and the library. The building – part of the Hoffman Center -- has provided studio space for artists, art and writing classes, and storage for the Friends of North Tillamook Library’s annual used book sale for several years. “It’s sad to lose Lloyd and Myrtle’s home, but the years have not been good to it,” said Hoffman Center president David Dillon. “It’s time to let it go and look to the future.” The demolition is being

funded in part by a $15,000 grant from a local family. The site will be landscaped to beautify the entry to the city. “We knew the building needed to be razed but didn’t have a timetable to do so, because of the cost,” said Dillon. “The very generous grant allowed us to accelerate our planning, and made it all possible.” CARTM crews have gone through to salvage recyclable materials. A team from IRS Environmental of Portland removed the limited amount of asbestos found during an inspection. “The lot will be preserved for a new Hoffman Center structure sometime in the future,” said Dillon. “That facility would be constructed only after the mortgage on our main building across the

‘Small is Beautiful’ at CARTM’s Trash Art Show By Laura Swanson For the Citizen
“This was a fascinating transition year for the Trash Art Show,” said Lorraine Ortiz, co-curator of the annual event, with Susan Walsh. “CARTM brought the show back onsite to bring attention to the Trash Art Gallery and The Refindery. Because of the small footprint of the gallery, we needed to theme the show to accommodate the art. “We had no idea what to expect when we asked artists to make pieces that were a total of 36 square inches, nor how many pieces we would receive. Susan and I were so pleased with the response to the challenge and the various ways artists interpreted the theme of “Small Is Beautiful.” CARTM’s “creative” fundraiser is always a treat and this year proved that once again resident artists are an amazing group. The event, once again, introduced some new artists as well. “We had 22 artists, a few new to the show having just moved to the area,” said Ortiz. “People hear about trash art and they are intrigued. Larry and Kathy Pennington are two new artists who have relocated here. They do mosaic on hubcaps and make lamps from glass shards. Their work was very popular, and they will show in the year-round Trash Art Gallery.” Safe to say, everyone was wowed by the ingenuity and diversity of materials
the artists used, and many commented that it seemed as though there was collaboration, as in “I’ll use wood, you use fabric, and you do metal, etc.” But there was none of that. It was compared to a grand art potluck, where, without orchestration, you magically get one of every dish with no duplicates, and that showed the wondrous, imaginative and crafty minds of the artists. The works of art featured glass, ceramic, metal, paint chips, wood, paper, fabric and much more – all reclaimed, re-used and re-invented into works of art. Participating artists included Mary Jo Anderson, Karen Babbitt, Dave Dillon, Helen Gourde, Glenna Gray, Cathi Howell, Sher Ireland, Claudia Johnson, Kathleen Larson, Sunny Mally, Lorraine Ortiz, Larry and Kathy Pennington, Kathleen Ryan, Gary Seelig, Tela Skinner, Cathy Silver, Judy Sorrel, Patty Thurlby, Aina Tonjes, Sage Walden and Susan Walsh. In the past, a challenge for many art lovers was often finding the wall space for new art, but the affordable prices and diminutive size of this year’s pieces had buyers making purchases quickly. “We probably sold nearly half the pieces within the first 15 minutes of the opening,” said Ortiz. “We sold 60 percent of the work in the first hour. Typically, we have 60 pieces. This year we have 39, and, unofficially, we exceeded our projections for the show.” The Trash Art Show re-
mained available for viewing and for sale through Memorial Day. A new exhibit will debuted in the gallery on May 29. The ticketed preview artists’ reception was well attended by 115 people, and, as mentioned, people quickly made their art purchases and delighted in shopping The Refindery as well, while enjoying delicious food catered by Julie Barker, owner of Bread & Ocean. “The Refindery is an incredible space for a party – big, colorful, creative, with a great sound system and lots of parking,” said Ortiz. “There was lots of shopping going on, with a request for The Refindery to be open for evening shopping periodically.” The doors opened at 6:30 p.m. to the general public, with about fifty people attending the opening. “I don’t think people knew what to expect. Was this Trash Bash? No. Was this the Trash Art Show everyone was used to? No,” said Ortiz. “This was trash art as it turns Sweet 16, altogether new and different with a definite polish and flair. This is what trash art looks like when it is put in a gallery setting rather than a pop up venue as it has been in the past. This art form that Susan Walsh and I introduced to this community 16 years ago has evolved and this is what it looks like today…it is a marvel.” Tolearn more about CARTM, visit www.cartm. org online.

EVE sponsored Disaster Psychology First Aid Class set May 31 The Emergency Volunteer Corps of Nehalem Bay will sponsor a Red Cross training class in Disaster Psychological First Aid Saturday, May 31, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Nehalem Bay Fire & Rescue District Fire Station. The class is free. A disaster affects people involved physically, but it can also traumatize them. Psychological First Aid helps Red Cross responders understand the stresses that impact survivors and relief workers. It also provides practical suggestions about what to say and do for them. A disaster can be anything from a home fire, a major power outage, to a tsunami. By sponsoring this training, the Emergency Volunteer Corps hopes to help develop the support skills that will be needed most after any disaster. All local Red Cross volunteers are encouraged to attend. Persons interested in becoming volunteers are invited to attend as a first step into getting more involved. New volunteers can stay for the Red Cross orientation class immediately following the Psychological First Aid class or be contacted for future orientations.. Advance registration is not required. More information about the training is available at (503) 368-7590.

LNCT to premier Ferdun Conservation Award
Conservation on the Oregon coast has been going on since Oswald West, Oregon’s 14th governor, began the movement during his 1911-1915 tenure. The important work pioneered by Governor West continues to be honored in one of Oregon’s most treasured state parks named for the man. Honoring conservation leaders not only brings attention to the places that are preserved in perpetuity, but also is a reminder that significant change only occurs through the efforts of engaged citizenry. It is in that spirit that Lower Nehalem Community Trust (LNCT) established a new award named for two of the organization’s dedicated founders Gareth and Georgenne Ferdun, both of whom retired from the board earlier this year. Since its inception in 2002, LNCT has preserved over 100 acres of essential habitat surrounding the Nehalem Bay Estuary, one of the least intensively developed estuaries on the Oregon Coast. Estuary edge lands are some of the most crucial to preserving salmon runs, protecting water quality and preserving open space for potential rising sea levels. The Ferduns have been involved in local conservation efforts since 2000, not only as founders and board members of LNCT from 2002-2014, but also serving in leadership roles on the Lower Nehalem Watershed Council. Gareth was also deeply involved in the Nehalem Conservation Action planning process, an in-depth, multi-stakeholder plan designed as a starting point for expanded collaborative conservation projects in the Nehalem River watershed. “The LNCT enthusiastically supports the creation of this new award in honor of the steady, commited and visionary work of the Ferduns,” said Allan Olson, LNCT Chair. “The goal with the award is to solicit annual nominations of individuals, like the Ferduns, who have made a significant

Photo by Dave Fisher commitment to conservation in the Nehalem region of the Oregon Coast.” Although the award will be given through a nomination process in future years, this year, by a unanimous vote, the inaugural award will be given to Neal Maine for his groundbreaking efforts over the last 30 years to preserve essential habitat in Clatsop and Tillamook Counties. “We are pleased that the LNCT board has chosen to honor Neal with the first award. Neal was an important mentor and support to our founders when we were establishing Lower
Nehalem Community Trust,” said Gareth Ferdun, for whom the award is named, along Georgenne, his wife. “I am personally pleased to honor Neal in this fashion both for his help in getting LNCT started and for the work that he has done for conservation both in this watershed and on the north coast,” said Georgenne. “I don’t know what we would have done if we hadn’t had that example. Neal was a booster to us and would talk to us about how wonderful it was to work with the community. Having the support of someone who was doing that work was very important to me personally.” The inaugural Ferdun Conservation Award will be presented to Neal Maine at LNCT’s 7th Annual Living Locally gala on June 7, at NCRD in Nehalem. The presentation is part of the evening’s program which includes a locally-sourced dinner prepared by chef Tom Flood, Jr., of The Schooner in Netarts Bay, and silent and live auction featuring experiences not to be found at any other local auction-style event. Tickets for the event, if available, can be purchased by calling (503) 368-3203. If event tickets are sold out, tickets can still be purchased for the Golden Ticket Raffle which offers a choice of a trip to Tuscany, Bali or any of the 16 live auction experiences. Descriptions of these experiences can be found at www.nehalemtrust.org. The Lower Nehalem Community Trust, a 501(c)3, nonprofit, membership organization has been preserving and stewarding land in the Lower Nehalem region since 2002. Its programs include land conservation, nature education for children and adults, community gardening and advocacy.

Visiting with one of my daughters and grandson the other day made me realize that as we grow older what some take for granted isn’t necessarily understood by others, especially if we grew up in different eras. Somehow we got into a conversation about seat belts in cars. We finally agreed that those of us who survived several decades without them were either smart or lucky. I can remember having five kids in the car with my wife and I. The youngest was either on mom’s lap or between us in the front seat. The other four were in the back seat and they just rattled around back there. When I finally got a station wagon I lost the advantage that I had before when reaching back to smack the one’s making trouble. I can remember buying seat belts for the front seat and installing them myself. The trick was to find a sturdy place to drill the holes and to avoid breaking into the gas line or wiring that passed under the car. I don’t remember anyone installing them in the back seat. As cars kept improving seat belts were pretty standard. Eventually, we bought a nine-passenger station wagon and there were seats and belts for every-
one. The only problem then when necessary. To reach was that the two oldest kids places in eastern Washington weren’t that interested in goand Oregon, you had to take ing everywhere that we went. a commuter plane that landed In another conversation many places.

I will never forget the feeling as the plane roared down the runway and when the pilot pulled the nose up we could feel the force pushing us back into our seats. As we experienced that force there was a large boom that scared everyone except the crew who knew it was the landing gear being folded up into the plane. One of the hazards for us who are living into our senior years is the fact that not too many people share most of our memories. There is a lot of pleasure to be had as we reflect on the nice people and the wonderful times we had together. Some were responsible for great improvements that have made everyone’s life better. Maybe those of us who are still around should spend more time letting some of our current leaders know about those things that they are attempting now that were tried before. Most of those ideas that didn’t work then are still not good ideas.
Letters to the Editor Hope Chest making a difference in Tillamook County
This letter comes to remind the community of the work of the Hope Chest Thrift Shop on Hwy 101, between Manzanita and Ne-
halem, and Hope Chest Too in Rockaway Beach. Together we are able to help a number of Tillamook County charities. In March alone, we donated $12,000 to hospice, Faith In Action (helping seniors), Secret Angels, Meals for Seniors,
North County Food Bank, CASA, and St. Albans and First Christian Church in Tillamook (for their meal programs). We appreciate the great support we get from the community, both with donations and shopping at the
stores. We are staffed solely by volunteers. So, readers who would like to be a part of this work, please stop by and get a volunteer application. Thanks to all! Bobbie Porter Manzanita

Is an outdoor classroom coming to NKN?
NKN teacher sees potential on school district property next to high school By Laura Swanson For the Citizen
Neah-Kah-Nie High School teacher Steve Albrechtsen has a vision for an outdoor classroom, an environmental science lab for natural resource learning on property owned by the school district adjacent to the high school. With the assistance of a dozen high school senior boys, that vision is becoming a reality. Over the past two months, Albrechtsen and the boys have been hard at work clearing trails and improving access on the district’s property surrounding Crescent Lake. “This is an amazing opportunity and an incredibly diverse and nearly undisturbed ecosystem,” said Albrechtsen. “This is old growth forest with a variety of biomes, including freshwater lake ecology, marshland and stream.” In the approximately
four-acre area, over a mile of loop trails have been cleared. “It’s been a lot of hard work building the trails,” said NKN senior Andrew Smith. “But it’s such a huge honor to realize that what we are building now, kids years from now will be out here on field trips. We’re building a legacy.” Neah-Kah-Nie students are provided with many hands-on, in-the-field learning opportunities, and the Crescent Lake trails will get the kids outside experiencing their environment. “This is a win-win for everyone involved,” said Albrechtsen. “This type of learning engages all their senses and allows teachers to take advantage of that excitement.” A curriculum priority for teachers is a focus on STEM subjects – science, technology, engineering and math, and Albrechtsen’s field trips will provide these lessons. “We want our students to become experts in their own environments in which they live, and to realize the opportunities there are for education and future employment in natural resources,” said Albrechtsen.
On May 16, fourth and fifth graders from Ms. Harper’s Garibaldi Grade School became the first class to make a field trip to the yetto-be-named NKN outdoor classroom at Crescent Lake. The students arrived full of excitement and energy. Following introductions and information from Mr. Albrechtsen, know as “Mr. A” by students, they were sent off for an hour to assist high school students with continued trail building. A brief snack break was followed by two sessions of environmental learning. In partnership with the Tillamook Estuary Partnership (TEP), Julie Chick led the students in an activity to make molds of animal tracks. “There is amazing untouched wilderness right here in the school’s backyard,” said Chick. “It’s a wonderful environment to teach lessons.” One student showed off his “little” tracks of a squirrel, as the real thing scampered up a tree behind the students. Chick also had the students measure the salinity of surrounding waters, comparing the lake, river, bay and ocean water using a
refractometer. At the lakeside, Albrechtsen sent students on a scavenger hunt for a variety of leaves, identifying groundcovers, bushes and trees in the area. “It’s such an advantage and a big asset to have this, for all the schools to utilize,” said Albrechtsen. There is still a lot of work to be done. To improve access from the high school, a temporary bridge has been installed. “We are looking for grants and donations to help with building a permanent bridge structure and expanding access to more of the property,” said Albrechtsen. Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, Tillamook Estuaries Partnership, the City of Rockaway Beach and the Rockaway Beach Fire Department have helped out with the project to date. “There are so many opportu- Neah-Kah-Nie High School instructor Steve Albrechtsen (center) conducts nities here for the students to an outdoor learning exercise near the school earlier this year.

tion increased its rates to Tillamook PUD by 8.3 percent for power and 9.3 percent for transmission. The utility made budget reductions and looked for more cost-effective ways to operate. The PUD held off making a rate adjustment at that time, but anticipated the need for up to a 5 percent increase in 2014. The cost of wholesale power represents half of the Tillamook PUD’s cost of doing business and is the primary driver for the need to raise rates. BPA will make its next rate adjustment in October 2015 and every two years thereafter. In order to keep pace with the rising cost of wholesale power, Tillamook PUD will analyze rates and make adjustments, as needed, based on BPA’s price and schedule.
Tillamook PUD Board approves rate increase
TBCC accepting applications for three scholarships
The Tillamook People’s Utility District Board of Directors approved an average three percent rate increase, effective August 1. For residential customers, the increase will be implemented through a combination of a $1 increase in the basic charge and a small increase in the kilowatt-hour usage charge. The monthly residential basic charge will increase from $19 to $20, and the usage charge will increase from $0.0690/kWh to $0.0707/kWh. As an example, for a residential customer using 1,200 kWh per month, the increase will cost an additional $3.04 per month. As a not-for-profit public power entity, Tillamook PUD provides power to its customer-owners at cost, and raises rates only when necessary. In October 2013, the Bonneville Power Administra-

The strawberries are here!
“We cannot set down foot but tread on strawberries.” – An early English settler in America

So, when the “real” Last weekend I was at strawberries appear, I am the Portland farmer’s market overjoyed! downtown and bought a Strawberries are an beautiful half flat of organic ancient fruit that strawberries.

They don’t
I recommend only buying organic strawberries as conventional ones are sprayed with up to 300 types of anti-fungals, pesticides and herbicides. We aren’t the only ones who love these sweet nuggets so the commercial farmers fight back with chemicals. Conventional strawberries are listed second (with apples being first) as the most “dirty” produce. They are literally poisonous like Snow White’s apple. Please don’t be tempted by the witch of modern chemicals and buy conventional strawberries. I couldn’t help myself, I had to do strawberry shortcakes for the recipe to share today. I mean, there is no other way to better enjoy the season’s best. These sweet little nuggets have a couple of interesting ingredients that you wouldn’t normally think would be good together but they add a depth instead of detract. I have a gluten free option that is equally amazing on my website, cavewomancafe.come.
Strawberry shortcakes with a new twist
Heads up! These take 20 minutes of chill time so figure that into your prep time. Please use as many organic products as possible but the flour, sugar and berries are the most critical. Serves 8.
berries are 3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar (I used white balsamic.) A few cranks of black pepper or a large pinch 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract Whipping cream or ice cream
Heat the oven up to 425 degrees. In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and lemon zest until fluffy and well mixed. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or with two forks or the old fashion way, my favorite, with your fingers. (Hopefully you washed your hands first.) When the butter is fairly well incorporated, add the cream and mix till just barely blended. (BTW, this first step can be done in a flash with the food processor. Just mix the dry ingredients with a few pulses, then add the butter and pulse until the butter

is just starting to mix in, then add the cream and pulse till barely mixed.) Turn you dough out on floured work surface and gather into a ball then flatten out into a rough 8 x 5 inch rectangle about 1-1/4 inches thick. Don’t overwork the dough or it gets tough. Cut the dough into squares to make eight biscuits. Put the biscuits onto a lightly greased baking sheet and chill for 20 minutes. Brush the top of the biscuits with the beaten egg and sprinkle with some sugar. Tuck in the oven to bake for 15 minutes or until they are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack to await their grand moment. (This step can be done a day ahead of time.) Gently mix your lovely fresh red ripe strawberries
Tillamook County Good Food for All launches outreach campaign
the strawberries growing in the new world. Not surprisingly, the strawberry is woven through many Native American tales as the berry that brings peace to the home and village with its bright color and sweetness. They would take the wild strawberries and mash then up, add cornmeal and cook them on the fire. (Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the ancestor of the strawberry shortcake.) The settlers waxed poetically about these humble cakes. Those Native American’s were no dummies as strawberries are a super valuable source of antioxidants. In fact they are rated third highest in antioxidants out of all foods with blackberries and walnuts in first and second place. Strawberries are also turning out to be a powerful anti-inflammatory and actually help regulate blood sugar instead of spike it. (That has the nutrition geeks furiously researching.) So, if you have diabetes, you can regularly enjoy this delight.

WWII veteran off to Washington, D.C. on Honor Flight By Dave Fisher The Citizen
World War II veteran and Manzanita resident Owen Nicholson will be on his way to Washington, D.C. this coming week aboard an Honor Flight to visit the nation’s war memorials. Several months ago, Nicholson learned about the program for WWII veterans and applied to be on one of the flights. Honor Flight is an organization that hosts WWII veterans on expense-paid trips to see their war memorial. “I was having dinner out with my wife about a year
ago when a couple noticed my WWII service cap I had on and brought up the subject of Honor Flights,” said Nicholson. “I had donated money towards the construction of the WWII memorial, but have never to see it once it was finished.” That’s about to change for 89-year-old veteran, who said his wife, Ann, encouraged him to “go for it.” Nicholson’s only lament is he won’t be able to go with a good friend, another WWII veteran, who lives in Portland and was also accepted. Turns out, Honor Flight has more than one office in Oregon and Nicholson and
his friend, because of where they lived, made their applications to different places. As a result, Nicholson, who received notification of his impending trip in early May, will visit the WWII memorial three months before his friend. “We both decided we better go while we have the chance,” said Nicholson, noting that he and his friend aren’t getting any younger. Nicholson spends June 1 in Portland at the Shilo Inn at Portland airport and flies out the following day, returning on Wednesday, June 4. Lodging and meals, along with the flight, are provided for at no

cost to veterans. “I’m quite fortunate and I am sure there are a lot of other WWII veterans that would like to go,” Nicholson noted.
Aside from visiting the WWII memorial, perhaps the real highlight of the trip will be bunking together with another veteran, as Honor Flight policy is two to a
room. It will be, said Nicholson, a great opportunity to share wartime experiences and swap stories. To learn more, visit www. honorflightoforegon.org.
