As part of a “doubleheader” on July 13 and 14, the Nehalem Valley Historical Society once again welcomes Scott Williams, lead investigator of the Beeswax Ship Project, as he updates the community on the latest effort to solve the mystery of the ill-fated sailing ship that dumped it cargo of beeswax off the north Oregon coast. Williams’ presentation takes place on Saturday, beginning at 5:30 p.m., which include a light dinner, while a lecture by Kerry Tymchuck, executive director of the Oregon Historical Society, happens on Sunday at 3 p.m. (See the

Artist Gordon Miller captured on canvas the grounding of a ship similar to the “Beeswax Ship.” You can visit his website at community events calendar for additional detail.) Williams’ team of investigators has been on the trail

20 years of great memories

Patient stories from 1920s, 1960s and today: Bev and Rich Luce

This year, The Rinehart Clinic is celebrating 100 years of providing healthcare service in north Tillamook County. The North Coast Citizen is publishing a monthly historical profile or vignette about The Clinic’s founders, history, and stories from past patients and employees. Enjoy exploring the history of The Rinehart Clinic and its many valuable contributions to the community. Former Rinehart employee Virginia Carrell Prowell profiles Rich Luce’s mother, Leta Jenkins, who was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in the 1960 and subsequently

moved to the area for treatment.

When Bev and Rich Luce moved to Manzanita in 2010, they already had a relationship with The Rinehart Clinic that went back several generations. Bev’s grandmother Laura Price Dougherty, who suffered from osteoarthritis, came to the clinic for gold treatments in the early 1920s. She and her daughter, Dorothy, Bev’s mother, traveled by train from Seattle to Portland, then on to Wheeler to see Dr. Harvey Rinehart for the treatments. Bev’s mother, who was eight or nine years old at the time, remembered those long train rides and the clinic of See RINEHART, Page 11

When the County Roads Advisory Committee met June 1, they reviewed a short (and not yet complete) list of major county roads proposed to be rebuilt in 2015 with money from the 10-year road bond voters approved May 21. Suggested projects by county public works director Liane Welch included Latimer Road, from Sollie Smith Rd. to Highway 101; Long Prairie Road, from Blimp Blvd. to the corner; Olson Road, from Third Street to Highway 6; Brooten Road, from Highway 101 into Pacific City; and Miami River Road, from milepost 8 to milepost 12. (The first eight miles has already been done, Welch said.) Latimer Road is an emergency flood route, a farm-to-market road, and the route that cheese factory trucks use to get to and from Highway 6, according to Welch. “It’s failing because trucks are tearing it apart,” she said. “It will be very expensive to fix.” Portions of the road

Nehalem and Manzanita mayors voice their support of the revised approach By Sayde Moser For the Citizen

County Commissioners Bill Baertlein and Tim Josi met with members of the public before the Fourth of July holiday, in the first of two public hearings on a pair of transient lodging tax ordinances. The two ordinances, once accepted by commissioners, will be submitted to voters in November. County Chief of Staff Paul Levesque said the current draft ordinances before the commissioners were the third versions. Ordinance 74, which creates the tax, sets the rate for nine percent with a credit up to eight percent for room taxes paid to a city – but the consensus from those testifying was to change the rate to a 10 percent tax with a nine percent credit. “We as a county only have one shot at this for a long time,” said Doug Olson, See TRT, Page 5

Wheeler Station Antiques celebrates 20 years in business By Dave Fisher The Citizen

Wheeler Station Antiques owner “Sandy” Sandhagen stands in the doorway of Wheeler Station Antiques underneath the banner that says it all. Photo by Dave Fisher

In his spare time, Sandhagen restores old gas pumps and offers them for sale. Photos by Dave Fisher worked well, but, eventually, the antique business encroached on his work area and not long after Sandhagen

abandoned the garage and focused solely on antiques and collectibles. As the business continued to grow, he added more space. “I added a little bit at a time, and then about eight years I bought the store next door,” he said. That space, too, quickly filled up and, now, Sandhagen says he now has so many people on his waiting list to rent space in Wheeler Station that he could probably fill another building. The quirkiness and charm of Wheeler Station, with all of its nooks and crannies, is by design, says Sandhagen, but there is a method to his madness. “The traffic has to flow… you can’t have dead ends.” The result is a multitude of areas but each with an entrance and exit. At any given time, Wheeler Station is has roughly 35 vendors who rent space by the square foot and pay a small commission on sales. Upwards of 70 people have items displayed throughout the store on consignment. “I rent everything – stairways, walls, window boxes – you name it. A lot of folks have been with me since day one,” said Sandhagen. One of those folks is Judy

Koehmstedt, who manages the store. Sandhagen refers to her as “the boss” and says she does 90 percent of what he should to do. His lady friend, Pat, has keeps the books for him, affording Sandhagen the time to restore and fix up various antiques, including gas pumps and soda pop dispensers from yesteryear. “I just scrounge around until I find something and then bring it up to par,” he once said. However, don’t look for him to sell you anything on display in the store eight feet or above. That area, comprised of old license plates, oil and grease cans, old signs and more, is reserved for his private collection, a throwback to his many years as a service station owner and operator. Koehmstedt says the glass floats, kitchen gadgets and furniture are the hotter items that, if priced to sell, move quickly.

“It runs the gamut,” she said. “It just amazes me what goes out of here.” After 20 years, Sandhagen offers this advice to those looking to start a business: “Just go for it, but if you’re going to be in business, be open for business. You can’t make it just being open three or four days a week.” Sticking to what has worked, Wheeler Station An-

tiques is open every day, except Thanksgiving and Christmas, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. “Nothing’s changed,” says Sandhagen of the operation. “Even the people are the same.” The success and longevity of his business has surprised even Sandhagen who says, “If I could figure out something else to do, I’d probably do it.” Twenty years later, he hasn’t thought of anything.

“Sticking to what works,” Marvin “Sandy” Sandhagen celebrated 20 years in business as owner of Wheeler Station Antiques by throwing a party on the Fourth of July. “It was a zoo, there were a lot of people,” said Sandhagen, who went through 200 to 300 complimentary hot dogs, over five gallons of lemonade and numerous pots of coffee as part of the day’s festivities. Drawings and prize giveaways added to the fun. Owner of the Chevron Station in Wheeler, Sandhagen launched Wheeler Station Antiques in 1993. When he purchased the gas station in 1979, he envisioned himself running it and working on cars until he retired, but when the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) began to clamp down on gas stations to comply with state and federal environmental laws in the 1980s, Sandhagen knew he had to something different. So, in 1993, he transformed the front area, where the gas pumps once stood, and dedicated the space to antiques and consignments. Meanwhile, he kept his garage in the rear and continued to work on automobiles. That

Shiloh Sanctuary offered in a sealed bid auction

The ocean-view Shiloh Sanctuary, developed by Robert D. Van Kampen, founder of the Chicago investment-banking firm Van Kampen Merritt Inc., and used as both a family retreat and tree farm management center, is being offered in a sealed bid auction by Realty Marketing/Northwest, in affiliation with Windermere Western View Properties. Sealed bids are due July 23, 2013. The 320-acre Shiloh Sanctuary is located near Oceanside, 15 miles west of Tillamook on a hilltop, with spectacular views to Cape Meares, Cape Lookout, the Pacific Ocean and Tillamook Bay. Architectural timber-style hand-crafted construction has been used for the compound,

which has a 8,945-square foot timber management center that is also used for the owner residence; a 5,427-square foot caretaker home, and 3,885-square foot equipment and maintenance shop, all built in 1990. “Both homes are highquality materials and design,” said John C. Rosenthal, president of Realty Marketing/Northwest. “The owner’s luxury residence with master suite and two guest suites are being sold fully-furnished, including installed western art throughout. The property includes a well-stocked highlyproductive investment-grade tree farm with approximately three million board-feet of timber projected to increase to 4.4 million board-feet in

Bruce Phillips distributed and collected from the jars set up around town, and Anna Wilkes did personal, one-on-one fundraising all the way through the 4th. Extra special thanks also to Charley Lostrom of Manzanita Real Estate Group, and Greg Baumgart of Baumgart Construction for resolving a critical logistics problem. Finally, kudos go to the Kiwanis Club of Manza-Whee-Lem, their families and friends, for cleaning up around the firing pit the next morning. That was another important job.

happens to the rates for those who still want a paper delivered? The ripple effect will go back to the manufacture of paper and ink. Some will say that is a good thing, but not if your living is at stake. Each month, as I wrote the check for the daily paper, I felt like I might be pretty well off. I had a fairly wealthy friend who told me that he quit getting the paper because it was just too expensive. Yes, a lot of what is happening in the world is disappointing to some of us old folks. We are now having the same kind of feelings that little kids get when they first learn that there is no Santa Claus. It even opens up that old puzzle about just why they use rabbits and chicken eggs to celebrate Easter. You can probably tell that I am running out of things to worry about. The good thing is that they are not lethal. I remember meeting a fellow at breakfast one morning. He introduced himself and told me he lived in Portland and came down to Wheeler for this meal. He said he was 85 years old and proud of it. The fellow across the table asked “How old did you say you were?” The first guy said 85. The other fellow said he was 96, and the first guy said he really was pleased to meet him and when he needed the advice of an older man he would look him up! That was a few years ago, and you can see I have some more work to do if I am going to catch up.

Letters to the Editor Busy time for Secret Angels This has been a busy time for the Tillamook County Secret Angels, with many phone calls asking for help to assist families. Several people have sent funds, dropped off checks and even sent bills anonymously. I do not have the numbers readily available, so for the sake of expediency I will label them with a letter. • Family A is my large family with the little girl who needs to be transported to Portland several times a month. They live check-tocheck, hence the fuel to make these trips is a drain on the family. The Medicaid program that has been assisting the child is not assisting with reimbursement for transporting her, nor covering several drugs that can be purchased over-the-counter, thus imposing further financial penalties for birthing a child with congenital defects. I try to keep a supply of gift cards on hand to cover fuel and on-theroad snacks as whenever the mother has to take the trip, it’s an all day event. Needed: Size 5 diapers for a child in the beginning stages of toilet training, gift cards for groceries and gasoline, and funds toward helping to replace the motor in a vehicle that transports this family of seven. • Family B is also a large reconstituted family of eight. Because the eldest boy has developmental issues, one of the parents must be in the home at all times to ensure the safety of the younger children. It has been a strain on the parents as the mother has had to work

two jobs to try and support all eight of them on a high school drop-out education. Currently they have asked for $500 to assist in paying their rent. • Family C is a single lady in her late 40s, who was injured in a fall and is unable to return to work as she follows doctor’s orders. It has set her back financially, so much so that she is facing eviction and/ or power shut-off. • Family D is a set of grandparents who had the responsibility of raising their toddler grandchildren thrust on them suddenly this last month.

Is new STOP SIGN appropriate and/or necessary? We have a new STOP SIGN in Manzanita, on Nehalem Ave. where it meets Sitka Lane. The Tillamook County Public Works Dept. placed the new sign there as a part of a necessary road realignment. They cite safety and liability issues as major concerns for that realignment project. Well and good; they should be concerned about those things. However, the county says the ‘sight distances’ through that turn do not meet the design criteria of The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO). This is true now, after the realignment, as it was before the project was done. So, my question is: what’s different now that is “fixed” by the new STOP SIGN? The county says the proximity of the paved footpath adjacent to the realigned roadway creates the potential for unsafe pedestrian traffic if the motoring traffic is allowed to “free flow” through the intersection. (Intersection? There are no intersecting streets, roadways, etc. here.) But, the county has

addressed this by requiring the State Park Dept. to remove/relocate the offending portions of that foot path enough to result in clear, safe drive lanes through the curve. So, how does the new STOP SIGN fix this? The county says that proximity to Nehalem Bay State Park brings seasonal/recreational traffic to this area, and that many visitors are not familiar with our roads and this specific intersection. Probably true. But, what safety issues or hazards does the new STOP SIGN “fix” for these legally licensed visitors driving through this location? Along the road leading from Hwy 101, at the Shell Station, to the entrance to the state park (the road is named Necarney City Road over there), there are two existing stop signs. Both are at “corners” where another road comes in from the south to “meet” the main road. Nevertheless, both of these locations allow “free flowing traffic” through the intersection with “right turn permitted without stopping.” Now the county wants to stop all vehicles at Nehalem Ave. and Sitka Lane with the new STOP sign? Sometimes, common sense should prevail. If you think the new STOP SIGN is necessary and appropriate, do nothing. If you think it is an unnecessary impediment to reasonable traffic flow along a “very low-volume local road,” (the county’s description of Sitka Lane, from an AASHTO reference), then contact Tillamook County Public Works and let them know your thoughts on the issue.

Blood pressure debate is on the rise Manzanita Beach Run may be biggest yet

Vice-Chair of the Economic Development Committee, voicing his support for the higher tax rate. Nehalem Mayor Shirley Kalkhoven informed the commissioners that on behalf of all seven Tillamook County mayors, they agreed to support a 10/9 decision. “It seems to us to be more consistent and less confusing,” she said, adding that the 10/9 increases the tax overall and therefore the amount of money raised for the roads department. “This is a very important issue to the county and it’s important we get it right,” she said. Tillamook Mayor Suzanne Weber and City Manager Paul Wyntergreen spoke on behalf

on is working properly. Most people will have a higher reading when under stress or nervousness of being tested. Before you accept a diagnosis of high blood pressure and launch into a drug program, I would make darn sure you really do have hypertension. There is growing complaints concerning the overuse of drugs being prescribed by doctors that have either misdiagnosed or have not taken the proper time to work with you on alternatives. These drugs are powerful, expensive and come with a load of sideeffects, not to mention they often cause more problems and don’t work for the intended purpose. Controlling blood pressure has long been a mainstay of the pharmaceutical industry. About 65 million Americans have high blood pressure under the current definition and they help fuel a $17 billion annual market in drugs for hypertension. If the new guidelines come into effect to expand the definition of hypertension to include more people to the tune of 60 million “borderline” cases of hypertension, then the drug companies can drastically expand the drug market. Drug companies will have found a cash cow. This is the same debate going on for defining high cholesterol, diabetes and obesity. All are being examined by the drug industry as to how they can profit from these symptoms of (in most cases), a lifestyle choice and not a disease. You are the one responsible for your health. Take time to understand as much as you can. Medicine is overused and lifestyle choices are underused by the “experts.”

of the city councilors of Tillamook, who had called a special council meeting the night before to discuss what position to take on the TLT. According to Wyntergreen, the council agreed to support a revision in the ordinance to move the TLT to 10/9. Mayor Weber asked the commissioners to consider earmarking the money raised for roads so that it is spent within the city it was raised. Manzanita Mayor Garry Bullard also reiterated his support for the 10/9 option. “It wasn’t an easy decision for us because we didn’t want any part of it,” he said, noting that he had tried and failed on several occasions to explain the 9/8 option to people and felt like the 10/9 was simpler. “We

“As event day grows closer, the excitement is growing bigger and bigger,” says Jeremy Hill, race director for the Manzanita Beach Walk & Run. “We already have a record number for preregistered participants.” Preregistration is more important than ever, especially if participants want to receive a t-shirt commemorating their participation. “We’re guaranteeing the first 275 will receive this year’s shirt and we are getting close to reaching that number. While we will have extras, we can’t stress the importance of registering early enough,” Hill said. Set for Saturday morning, July 20, the ever-popular event features a 5K run, 5K walk and 10K run. Funds raised go to the North County Recreation District enabling the district to purchase fitness equipment, train staff, and purchase supplies to continue its mission to promote the educational, recreational, social and physical well being of those living in north Tillamook County. For newcomers, the run plays out on a wide expanse of hardpacked sand that stretches from the cliffs of Neahkahnie Mountain south to Nehalem Bay Jetty. Cape Lookout to the south and Neahkahnie to the north provide a scenic backdrop, if they’re not hidden by fog. It’s why so many call the Manzanita Beach Run “one of the most scenic runs in the region.” The race begins at 9:00 a.m. at the foot of the Laneda Ave. on the sandy shores of Manzanita Beach. Runners begin in a single start heading south towards Nehalem Bay Jetty and then change course and head back north to where they started. Mile markers along the course provide direction for runners, while

need to be able to explain it to voters if it’s going to pass.” Members of the Roads Advisory Committee contend that the roads bond passed because people were counting on this TLT and the 10/9 option would bring in the most money for roads. Eugene Tish, owner of Garibaldi House in Garibaldi, also supported the 10/9 option, adding that the 9/8 would lose well over $100,000 a year and would therefore compound even slower. “Assuming we invest it correctly, we can accomplish a lot with that kind of money,” he said. Tish stated that of his nearly 20,000 guests last year, not one questioned the tax rate and he didn’t believe a 10/9 would make Tillamook County less

competitive with neighboring counties. Another public hearing was held July 10, after this edition of the Citizen had already gone to press, to continue the discussion. A final decision by county commissioners on the final TRT formula is expected soon after.

The finish line beckons at the annual Manzanita Beach Run & Walk. File photo volunteers at the turn around points provide aid as needed. Music helps pump runners up, while snacks and water await runners afterwards to help them refuel. Awards for top finishers, as well as a raffle for prizes, will be held after the event. Participants are more than welcome to bring their dog to the event as long as owners keep them on a leash. “There’s still time to make this summer a great one,” Hill noted. “You can register online or you can download a registration form and mail it to us. We’re already at record numbers and it’s only going to get bigger and we want everyone to be a part of it.” For those still sitting on the

fence, you can register the day of the event, though the price will be an additional $5 dollars, bringing the total price for day of registration to $40. This includes a t-shirt shirt (while supplies last), racing chip, bib, and snack afterwards, as well as entry to our raffle during awards. The online registration deadline is July 18, or stop by the North County Recreation District in Nehalem anytime before 8 p.m. on July 19, and register as well. “We have a lot of great sponsors on board again this year,” said Hill. “We ask that when participants are in town that they let them know how much they appreciate them helping us put on a such a great event.”

The lovely little village of Wheeler lies at the edge of the Pacific on Nehalem Bay along Oregon’s spectacular north coast. Wheeler was born in the early 1900s when a railroad link was completed connecting Portland to the timberrich area surrounding the bay. The train delivered lumber as well as seafood to eager markets to the east. The city of Wheeler with the commanding view of the Nehalem Bay has some of the most interesting pre-Oregon history. Some suggest that the area is actually the New Albion referred to in accounts of Frances Drake’s voyage in 1579. Others suggest that Bruno de Heceta was the first European to approach the Columbia River Bar area in 1775, a mere decade before Lewis & Clark. Still others claim that a careful bit of digging in Nehalem Bay

will confirm that Chinese mariners arrived here before the Europeans. The first survey of Wheeler was made by a US Geological Survey team in 1856. It is not uncommon to find references in early documents to Edward and Nancy Gervais. Edward was the grandson of Coboway, the chief of the Chinook tribe at the time of Lewis and Clark in 1805. Nancy Gervais was the last full-blooded Nehalem Native American. The village was founded as a mill town in 1910 by lumberman Coleman H. Wheeler, more commonly know as “C.H.,” for whom the town it is named. Wheeler operated a sawmill called the Wheeler Lumber Company, which he founded in 1912. Wheeler died about 1920. The success of the town

foreground are truly some of the best anywhere to be found. Wheeler has been called “the little town with the million-dollar view!” It is a coastal refuge where people come to relax, refresh, and enjoy the scenic splendor of Oregon’s north coast. Wheeler is small enough to be peaceful and unhurried — yet big enough to offer the services and advantages of a tightknit community. As of the census of 2000, there were 391 people, 176 households, and 93 families residing in the city. Labeled a “village” by locals, the City of Wheeler remains a mighty active community. Volunteers maintain the parks, stage annual festivals, train the citizens for emergency preparedness and continually upgrade a vision plan for the city. Thanks to the City of Wheeler and its website for its historical and some of the modern day photos, along with the history of the community.

In the early 1990s, following an economic downturn in the 1970s, residents of the area decided to revitalize their town. The Wheeler Business Association was organized and began to attract new employers and visitors. Wheeler changed into a vital, interesting place to live, work, pursue the arts and come for a visit. The lumber mills and fish packing plants of Wheeler’s early decades are gone now… leaving a village of charming, historic buildings strung together on the edge of that beautiful bay as if they were displayed on a holiday mantle. Wheeler enjoys a wonderful “mini” climate and is often bathed in sunshine while surrounding coastal areas enjoy fog and mist. Natives call Wheeler “Pukalani” (hole in the sky) as the surrounding hills seem to protect Wheeler from the prevailing northwest wind and fog. The sunsets with Nehalem Bay in the

Beeswax Ship From page 1

an underwater archeologist assisting in the investigation, the “pieces of the puzzle” are coming together. The key, said Mock, is the availability of a vessel owned by Marken and moored in Garibaldi, just an hour away from two or three intriguing sites offshore near Manzanita. The challenge has always been to have a boat and divers on location, or, at least nearby, so that when a favorable weather window presents itself, investigator can take advantage of the opportunity. Though the team, in previous efforts, has come together during summer months, the weather and seas haven’t always cooperated. “Using underwater technology to scan the bottom offshore, investigators have been able to pinpoint these sites,” said Mock. “They believe if there is something out there, they will find it.” The story of the Beeswax Ship dates back 300 years or more. The beeswax-laden ship, believed to be of Asian origin under the flag of Spain, met its demise on or near Nehalem spit sometime between 1640 and 1705. Throughout the years, beeswax in blocks and candles

Scott Williams will be in Manzanita, once again, to bring locals upto-date on the Beeswax Ship Project. Williams will be joined by Mitch Marken, an underwater archeologist assisting in the investigation. File photo have been found in the vicinity, along with pieces of teak wood that that were part of the ship. While suggestions for the origin for the wreck have included China or Japan, British or Dutch privateers, and Spanish coastal vessels missing from Peru or New Spain (Mexico), the artifacts in various collections seem to be consistent with a late 17th or early 18th century Manila galleon. Historian Eb Giesecke, who has investigated the wreck since the mid-1950s, agrees with those who contend that the beeswax wreck

was most likely the Spanish galleon San Francisco Xavier that came ashore on the north Oregon coast. Giesecke, with the help of the Nehalem Valley Historical Society, published a 100-page book on his research. Giesecke theorizes that the ship was subsequently broken apart by winter storms and that some of its remains were cast ashore into low-lying area inland. Survivors of the wreck are thought to have integrated with local tribes’ people. Still an all-volunteer effort, the project has, for the most part, been self-funded.

Williams, who has been on board with the investigation since day one, told the Citizen in an earlier interview that this is an archaeological and historical investigation. “It is not a treasure hunt,” he said. “The ship was not a treasure ship… and, if it is found, it belongs to the State of Oregon.” For his part, Mock believes through this latest effort the investigation will finally produce positive results. “After all this time, we’ll finally be able to identify the ship and solve this mystery. It will be the single-most important maritime discovery on the West Coast.” The July 13 event at Pine Grove Community House in Manzanita is a fundraiser for the Beeswax Ship Project. A minimum $10 donation for the meal and presentation is suggested. Likewise, the free lecture by Kerry Tymchuck the following afternoon is expected to fill the hall and it is recommended to call ahead to reserve seats. Call (503) 368-7460 and leave a message with your name, number of people attending and which event(s) you’ll be attending. Seats will be reserved on a first come, first serve basis.

Nehalem City Council meeting short and sweet

postponed until the August 12 meeting when the full council could be present. Cheryl James of Nehalem attended the meeting to report that she was working to help those residents on the north side of Hwy 101 prepare for possible emergencies. She will soon have packets for them including maps and information. She added that volunteers are needed to do the south side of 101. She also asked if there were laws against feeding raccoons within the city limits. (Apparently there are none.) She explained that a number of raccoons roam the area, with several very large and aggressive ones, and she is concerned about small children and pets. The next meeting of the Nehalem City Council is scheduled for August 12, at 7:30 p.m.

In what may have been a record for short meetings – under 30 minutes – Nehalem’s City Council met on July 8, and received an update from City Manager Dale Shafer on the statue of the new city hall building. Shafer reported that the state, in view of the size of the proposed new meeting hall, would require another door for the room. That has already been included in the plans, she noted. Reporting on the timber sale, Shafer said that currently the roads are being worked on in preparation for logging operations. A discussion on a proposed fence or hedge, to prevent people from parking too far off the road and into the American Legion Cemetery west of Nehalem, was

Two others suggested by committee members were Sandlake Road, between McPhillips and Woods, and Necarney City Road, the main route to CART’M from Bayside Gardens. Both roads get heavy traffic, committee members said. “Netarts Bay Drive is terrible,” committee member Gus Meyer suggested. It’s narrow, rough, and gets a lot of foot traffic, he said.

Assets, has done a visual inspection of the roads on the list and will be recommending “which roads will get the biggest bang for the buck with what treatment,” Welch said. The Roads Advisory Committee had approved in June a long list of short sections of road planned to be paved this summer. That work is scheduled to begin July 15, though money from sale of the bonds won’t be available until sometime in September. The county will be hiring three new public works employees – basically truck drivers, Welch said, though they’ll be operating a variety of equipment. The plan was to keep those people over the 10-year life of the project, Welch said, but it might be longer.

Bond money will also let the county buy what Welch called a “gravel shooter.” It doesn’t actually shoot the gravel, just spreads it on road shoulders – work the county previously had to do by hand. Welch plans on posting signs saying “Thank you for your support – your road bond dollars at work” at the project sites. The Roads Advisory Committee’s next meeting is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 9, a week after Labor Day.

Summer mission; grilling the perfect burger

“The biggest mistake people make is pushing the burger around because they want to look like a grill master.” – Jeff Weinstein, Burger Master

our famer’s market and their meats are far superior to any store bought meat. (And you are supporting our local farmers, a win-win!) • On forming the patties - Chill your meat in the freezer for 10 minutes before handling and wash your hands in cold water before forming the burgers. This keeps bacteria down and helps reduce the stress to the burger so it won’t be tough after cooking. You want to handle the meat quickly and gently when forming the patties. Resist the urge to squash your burgers; it doesn’t work out well for either one of you. Form your patties about 3/4 to an inch thick and make a dimple in the middle of the burger about a 1/4 inch deep and 1 to 2 inches in diameter. This dimple helps the burger cook evenly and reduce shrinkage. It will flatten out perfectly when cooking. Brush them

Jerry Taylor said, “they’re all over the board.” The most “radical” he noted: Sell the existing city hall, fire station and parking lot properties and buy Underhill Plaza on Manzanita Ave. and build all new facilities there, since it is considered to be out of the tsunami inundation zone, whereas the other cityowned sites are not. Prompting the discussion is the fact

Voters in Tillamook County finally gave the county the go-ahead to improve its roads, passing a countywide $15 million general obligation road bond. Prior road measures had been defeated, the most recent in November 2011 by a fairly narrow margin giving officials hope that the measure on the May 21 Special Election ballot might find success at last. In unofficial results, the measure passed by a slim margin with 3,712 (51.28 percent) voting in favor and 3,525 (48.72 percent) casting a no vote. The election drew a big turnout – unusual for an “off” election – with over half (7,363) of Tillamook County’s 14,573 eligible voters casting ballots. The voters’ approval of the measure means Tillamook County will be issuing $15 million in bonds, in two separate bond sales five years apart, for road improvements. As for the other major bond issue on the ballot, voters rejected a $1 million general obligation bond for the Tillamook School District #9; Yes – 1,390 and No – 2014. “I would like to thank the Sustainable Roads Committee

In your handy dandy blender or food processor, blend the herbs, shallots, garlic and lemon juice until everything is a fine mess. Dump 3/4 of that herby mess into a large bowl with the ground meats and mix in the spices, salt and pepper, egg and herb blend with your hands (hopefully clean) until just mixed. Don’t over mix or you will get tough burgers. Form the burgers into 8 patties about an inch thick and with a dimple in the middle of them about 1/4 inch deep and a couple inches wide to prevent shrinkage. Brush or spray the burgers with a bit of olive oil on the top side, season with salt and pepper and set in the freezer while your grill heats up. Add the remaining herb mixture with the mayo, stir well and set in the fridge till later. Heat your grill to medium high heat or if you are using charcoal, get your coals red hot. (You should probably do that charcoal thing before you form the patties.) Grill your burgers, turning once until medium done, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Sprinkle the burgers with 1 tablespoon of the feta cheese right after taking them off the grill and let them set 2 to 3 minutes before serving. Serve with the herbed mayo, thinly sliced red onions, tomatoes, arugula (mixed greens work well too), and toasted buns if you choose. Cheers!

those days. Years later she told Bev that when Grandma Laura “had a problem, she took care of it” and that “she went to The Rinehart Clinic because it was the best treatment available.” What a coincidence that Rich, too, had a connection to The Rinehart Clinic. Rich’s mother, Leta Jenkins, was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in the 1960s and moved from Kirkland, Washington to Nehalem in order to be closer to the innovative treatment program available at the clinic. She remembered both Dr. Robert Rinehart and Dr. Dorothy White Rinehart, Dr. Harry Rinehart’s parents, who were medical providers at that time. (Note: It’s likely that Leta was treated by me, Virginia Carell Prowell, in the physical therapy department.) Bev, Rich and their four young children visited Leta frequently, enjoying the ocean and bay, and swimming in the pool at NCRD. When it came time for retirement from the Seattle area, it’s no surprise that Bev and Rich chose this community and built their home on the beach in Manzanita. What is surprising, though, is how quickly they met Dr. Rinehart and became involved personally with The Rinehart Clinic. Shortly after they moved here, Rich, while

with a little olive oil on both sides, season with salt and pepper (if they are already seasoned) and then put the burgers back in the freezer for five minutes before grilling to firm them up. • On grilling them - Grill burgers hot. A high constant heat is the key to a perfectly cooked burger. Make sure to have your grill hot before laying the burgers on it. Do not fiddle with or squish the burgers once you’ve got them on your hot grill. I know it’s hard but you can do it! Burger masters only flip the burgers once, so try to keep that in mind when cooking these gems. You’ll know if you have the right sear on the burger if they come right off without sticking when you go to flip it. If it sticks you either haven’t got your grill hot enough or you haven’t let it sear long enough. Cook for about five minutes on each side,


I love this time of year when blue is the predominant color of the sky and the air in the evening is filled with the smoky, fragrant, scent of dinner on the grill. I often stop and breathe in deeply and imagine what is going to be for dinner next door. I always seem to imagine burgers for some reason. Everybody loves a burger. But despite America’s best intentions, creating the perfect burger is hard to do. Most of the time we manage to get a dry, crumbling, hockey puck of a thing that sticks to the roof of our mouth. So what are the secrets of a perfect burger? Once again, I have sacrificed myself and my loved ones to find this very answer for you. Here are some tips for burger mania on the summer grill. • On the Meat - Buy good meat, the cheaper the meat the less flavor and health involved. We like to mix our ground meats and do 50/50 venison/pork or lamb, lean beef/pork or lamb. A rule to remember is that the fat carries the flavor so you want to make sure and have that in the burger for taste and juiciness. There are many local meat farmers that at

depending on the thickness of your burger. If you want those groovy crisscross patterns on the burger, just do a half of turn after they have cooked for three minutes or so, and then after flipping them, do the half turn again before they are done. • After the grill - Take them off the grill and let them set for a few minutes, batting off the offending intruders who wish to jump in. This allows the juices to redistribute into the burgers. Serve the burgers with high quality toppers like homemade BBQ sauce, mayo and ketchup. I also like to marinate red onions, which are a cinch, and serve with them, along with interesting cheeses, like blue cheese or feta. Believe me this really turns a regular burger into a party in your mouth. I do not use buns, but if you do, choose ones that don’t dominate the flavor of the burger and toast them on the grill after the burgers are done. Here is my latest favorite burger that I cannot get enough of. They are easy enough for a weeknight and delicious enough for a weekend barbeque. This recipe comes out of my new favorite cookbook that I highly recommend, “Dishing up Oregon,” by Ashley Gartland. Beware, when these burgers are grilling the neighbors might not just sniff but decide to come to dinner!

As one of its goals for 2013-14, the Manzanita City Council looks to identify and evaluate options for utilizing city-owned buildings while determining long-term locations for its administrative and police offices and developing an implementation plan. A daunting task, council members, nonetheless, sat down at a special meeting and work-

shop on May 16, to discuss alternatives focusing on whether or not the present city hall should stay put with modifications, move into a renovated site, once home to the city’s fire department before the creation of the Nehalem Bay Fire District, or build a new structure on the city-owned parking lot across the street from the old fire station. In creating a list of alternatives developed by city staff or suggested by community members, City Manager

Braving the wind and rain, 50 to 60 people gathered at Nehalem American Legion Cemetery near Manzanita for a shortened version of the annual Memorial Day observance. While inclement weather this time of year isn’t unusual, many in attendance noted that Monday’s weather was probably the worst they had seen in recent memory for the event.
