South jetty tops local priorities for federal funds. What’s new? By Joe Wrabek Repairs to the deteriorating south Tillamook Bay jetty top the Tillamook County commissioners’ list of priorities for federal funds this year – just like they did last year and the year before. The Port of Garibaldi is asking $600,000 for the Corps of Engineers’ Portland district to get engineering done on the south jetty. The actual repairs are estimated to cost $31 million. “We have been in line a long time,” port commission president Val Folkema told the county commissioners. The south jetty already has lost 906 feet to the surrounding waters. “Where we used to fish 20 years ago now is underwater,” noted County Commissioner Bill Baertlein. One or another of Tillamook Bay’s jetties – sometimes both – have topped the commissioners’ list of priorities for federal funds every year since 2006. Although the jetties comprise a system – “We have always viewed the north and south jetties as a tandem,” said Port of Garibaldi general manager Kevin Greenwood – the two jetties never have undergone repairs simultaneously. One gets fixed, then deterioration of the other accelerates because ocean action on the shoreline gets changed. There are environmental impacts, too, Greenwood said: “Bayocean spit is eroding again.” The Tillamook bar and channel are part of that system as well, said U.S. Coast Guard Master Chief

A landmark verdict – at last

Multi-year lawsuit filed by Tillamook dairy farmers draws to a close “Dairy farmers are close to their cows. The Kastes had names for all of them. They began to watch their cows get sick and die.” Anne Foster, attorney representing Neal and Nancy Kaste By Sayde Moser Courtesy photo

A local dairy farm was threatened when toxic feed killed almost all of its cows.

When attorney Anne Foster took a case representing Tillamook dairy farmers Neal and Nancy Kaste against Land O’ Lakes Purina, one of the nation’s largest producers of cattle feed, she couldn’t know

it would result in one of the largest jury awards in Tillamook County history. Or that it would take so long to come to an end. “It was outrageously long,” declared Foster, an attorney with Dunn Carney Allen Higgins & See LAWSUIT, Page A5

On the mend Local paramedic recovering from near-fatal car accident By Sayde Moser

Tillamook County paramedic Josh Blackburn reportedly is making a dramatic recovery in a Portland hospital following a car accident Jan. 4 that left him with damage to his brain. Blackburn was driving home from Manzanita when his car hit a patch of black ice and slid into oncoming traffic, hitting a pick-up truck. Family members said Blackburn, who was bleeding from the right side of his brain, was Life Flighted to Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland. At the time, doctors weren’t sure of his recovery. A medical scan a few days after the accident revealed that his brain injury was worse than first anticipated, said Blackburn’s wife, Amy.

“I wasn’t even aware of all the lives he touches on a weekly basis. I didn’t know that many people loved us.” Amy Blackburn, Josh Blackburn’s wife “There was trauma all over the brain,” she said. “Brain surgeons don’t know a lot about [these types of injuries], so they basically came in the room and said that people whose brains show scans like this See ACCIDENT, Page A3

Volunteers needed for event to serve homeless By Sayde Moser

Here’s an opportunity for those experiencing homelessness to get a hot meal, a vaccination, haircut and other helpful services. Called “Project Homeless Connect,” the one-day event is held in hundreds of counties nationwide. In Tillamook, scheduled for Jan. 23, it also has served since 2010 as one way to generate an annual count of the local homeless residents. “We are required to get a count ever year,” said CARE executive director Erin Skaar. The number of people who show up at the event has been fairly steady, she said, numbering from 65 to 75. “We’re quite certain we’re not reaching everyone,” said Skaar. On the other hand, not everyone categorized as homeless needs the services that are provided. “People who come [to the event] are those that really feel it’s something they need,” she said.

Volunteers Marlene Westerfield, center, and Teresa Camacho, right, directed visitors such as Jae Van to a variety of services during last year’s “Project Homeless Connect.” This year’s “Project Homeless Connect” will be held in the Sacred Heart Catholic Church’s gym on

Fifth Street. Although the number of people participating has remained reason-

ably steady, Skaar said, what the event has to offer has continued to grow. The Tillamook County Health Department will be providing vaccines, a handful of local hair dressers will be giving free cuts, the Tillamook chapter of the Oregon Food Bank is providing food for the meal and one local business, Raining Cats and Dogs, in conjunction with the nonprofit United Paws, will offer services for the pets of homeless residents. TLC Federal Credit Union is an event sponsor and donates money for sleeping bags, tents and tarps that are handed out to those in need, Skaar said. She said volunteers are needed to hand out free clothing, to interview those who walk through the door as part of the annual homeless count, to serve dinner, and help with vaccinations and clean-up.

Neah-Kah-Nie schools tackle issues of bullying By Dave Fisher The Headlight Herald

“If one child is being bullied, that is one too many,” says NeahKah-Nie School Superintendent Paul Erlebach, whose interest in bullying at school was piqued last May by a student soon to graduate from Neah-Kah-Nie High School. As part of his senior class project, the student, of AfricanAmerican descent, made a recording of racial comments directed to him during his senior year in school. While some were made jokingly, whether or not they were perceived that way could be anyone’s guess. Simply put, it’s just one form of bullying that goes on at schools locally and nationwide. Bullying and harassment, as defined in the Neah-Kah-Nie student handbook, is “a disturbance (language, behavior, technology-cyber bullying) which insults, ridicules, or torments another person.” “When I went to school, kids were being bullied and we weren’t doing anything about it,” Erlebach said. “We’re more sensitized now and mature in our reactions to it.” Following the student’s presentation of his senior class project on bullying to the district’s school board in May, Erlebach launched what he intends to be a series of school and community meeting on harassment, bullying and cyber-bullying. Five meetings have been held so far, with the next scheduled for Jan. 28 from 5 to 6 p.m. at Neah-Kah-Nie Middle School. Cyber-bullying will be the focus of the meeting; the public is invited to attend. During the meeting in November, attended by district administrators, instructors, bus drivers and parents, school principals shared what is being done about bullying at each school. Although the public’s perception may be that bullying primarily is a middle and high school issue, the problem exists at the elementary level as well,

Manzanita’s new visitors’ center and public restroom facility at the corner of First Street and Laneda Avenue awaits visitors. A grand opening that includes refreshments is set for Saturday, Jan. 18, from 10 to 4.

DONE DEAL! By Dave Fisher The Headlight Herald

Manzanita’s long-awaited visitors’ center and public restroom facility is finished (or very close to it) and will be the object of a grand opening slated Saturday, Jan. 18, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Crews have been busy in recent days attending to items that the architect of the structure determined to be deficient, according to City Manager Jerry Taylor. Taylor said he expected much of the furniture to be moved into the building beginning this week. Looking to complete the new building before the Fourth of July, the city originally put the project on the fast-track in early 2013 with a plan to replicate the existing building that stood at 31 Laneda Ave. and was most recently home to Kent Price Coldwell

Manzanita to co-host a grand opening of the new visitors’ center Jan. 18

Banker Realty. The old building was at one time the office of Ben Lane, one of the founders of Manzanita. In replicating the design of the building, city staff and the Manzanita City Council looked to save time by eliminating the need for design review by its planning commission. That didn’t set well with members of the planning commission, who voiced their opposition at the February meeting of the council. Also in attendance at the meeting were three or four local architects disgruntled that the city didn’t solicit design proposals for the new facility locally. It was suggested then that designing a new building specifically designed to handle the two functions, rather than replicating the old building would better serve the community. Ultimately, the city coun-

cil elected to stick with the original idea of replicating the existing building, but the time lost moved the project back two to three months. Once under construction, it was delayed time and again for a variety of reasons and plans for an opening during the holiday season were shelved. But that’s a mute point now as the Manzanita Business Alliance, in partnership with the City of Manzanita, gets ready to open the doors to its new visitors’ center a week from this Saturday. The MBA has contracted with the City of Manzanita to staff and run the visitors’ center. The deal was finalized with the city this summer. In addition, the MBA hired a new part-time coordinator, Dan Haag, to help with the creation of the new MBA website and solicit volunteers to staff the visitors’ center.

Through it all, MBA President Covert remained unfazed, keeping her eye on finally realizing a dream Manzanita merchants have harbored a long time. “Eventually, we’re looking to become a Chamber serving the three villages,” Covert said in an interview earlier this fall about the MBA’s long-term plans. “Until then, we’ll be recommending businesses not only in Manzanita but Wheeler and Nehalem as well.” With the grand opening of the 400-square-foot visitors’ center in sight, Haag remains enthusiastic. “I’m just looking forward to getting the doors open with smiling faces inside to greet visitors,” he said. Construction of the visitors’ center is being paid for from revenues generated by an increase in Manzanita’s transient lodging tax.

in the form of teasing and shunning fellow students. “We’ve gotten better at teaching and problem solving,” said Garibaldi principal Carol Kearns. She said the strategy is to give students the words and tools for basic conversation, and to demonstrate how to disagree and be proactive in building those skills. At the middle school and high school levels, policy, behavior, intervention and strategies are reviewed at the beginning of the school year, with the goal of teaching students to be safe, responsible and empathetic to others. Advisory periods at both schools are set aside to talk about social issues and to help create greater awareness of the problems of bullying. Certain activities done as “fun” in the past, but which may be demeaning to some, no longer are allowed as part of the school experience. “Being proactive is the best way to avoid problems,” said Erlebach. “How do you do that? With school counselors in each building, peer mediation and after-school activities … places for kids to go.” Its smaller class sizes also work in Neah-Kah-Nie’s favor, said Erlebach. “Kids are not just a number, as they would be in larger school,” he said. In addition, the district continues to refine the consequences of inappropriate behavior. First offenses call for an apology to the harassed individual and up to two days of in-school or outof-school suspension. Repeat offenders may see three to five days of suspension and possible expulsion, depending on the nature of harassment. In extreme cases, local police may become involved if a crime has been committed. Since coming aboard as superintendent in 2012, Erlebach said he believes “the pulse” of the district is healthy. “We want to promote that, create a healthy learning environment and ensure students’ safety at school.”

Accident Continued from Page A1 don’t recover.” Yet Josh Blackburn already was awake, talking, and able to hear and understand his diagnosis directly from the doctor, she said. “My first question was, ‘Can he revert?’” Amy Blackburn recalled. No, the doctors told her, if the brain is able to recover, it will only continue to get better. In fact, Josh has a relatively common brain injury, she said. At the same time, she added, “It’s also a common reason for death. Every person is different and every brain is different, so they can’t really tell you what to expect.” Blackburn said the family is hoping to see Josh moved to a rehabilitation area soon, where her husband will relearn how to walk and will work on his short-term memory loss. She said he has little to no movement in his left leg and his memory is spotty. She said she didn’t know if and when his memory or leg would recover. “It could be days, months, years or never. “All of his medical knowledge is still there,” she said, “all his ingrained knowledge. But he’s having trouble with the short term.” The driver of the pickup was Amy Miller, who works in administration at Tillamook Regional Medical Center in Tillamook.

This weekend, East Elementary School students will be taking to the streets to sell See’s candy. It might look like your average fundraising campaign, but not quite – the youngsters will be raising money for their own college scholarships. The campaign is the brainchild of teacher Scott Rodman and the school’s parent-teacher committee. Because most of the sales are expected to be made over the Martin Luther King holiday weekend, the campaign has been dubbed the “‘I Have a Dream’ College Scholarship Program.” The candy will be distributed Friday, Jan. 17, to participating students (305 of East’s 430 students). Six scholarships will be awarded. The top candy seller will win a scholarship that amounts to 40 percent of the campaign’s total candy sales. The second-place winner gets a scholarship equal to 20 percent of the total sales, and third place gets 10 percent of the total sales. Three more scholarship winners will be picked in a drawing to be held Jan. 24. Students who sell 10 or more candy bars will have their names entered into the drawing

– one “ticket” for every 10 bars, so students can have multiple tickets in the drawing. “All of the money raised goes to scholarships,” Rodman emphasized. In addition to the three scholarships, two iPad Minis will be given away, each with a customized “college case” of the winner’s choice, plus five hoodie sweatshirts and five tshirts. So a total of 18 students will win “tangible prizes” in the drawing, Rodman noted, although, “Once you’ve won a prize, you’re not eligible to win again,” he said. The scholarships will be “529 plans” (a tax-advantaged savings plan designed to encourage saving for future college costs) managed by the Tillamook Education Foundation. The scholarships can be used for any post-secondary education, Rodman said. “This is one fundraiser the [school] staff will be passionate about,” East Elementary principal Greg English said. “They’re in this to educate kids.” The 10-or-more candy bar sellers also get to go on a trip to Oregon State University in Corvallis arranged by OSU coordinator Emily Henry (Tillamook School District is donating the buses). The youngsters will have lunch and tour the campus hosted by OSU students.


Rockaway Beach loses another councilor By Joe Wrabek Rockaway Beach City Councilor Bonnie Sedgemore has resigned. It was for health reasons, City Council president Rich Riley announced during the council’s meeting Jan. 8. “She spent three weeks in the hospital,” he said. “She said

she will be back and will run for the City Council again.” Sedgemore’s resignation leaves the Rockaway Beach council with only four members: Riley (who was unanimously re-elected council president), Mardi Wing, Sue Wilson and Terry Walhood. Riley has been serving as mayor pro tem since Mayor Danell Boggs resigned Oct. 9.

READER’S OPEN FORUM The importance of Tillamook Bay Salutations to all those who see the south jetty repair and maintenance project as a number one priority. Maintaining food-producing industries should always remain at the top of the list. Vessels sporting their hailing port as Garibaldi are off-loading tons of revenue in ports from Westport, Wash. to Coos Bay where Garibaldi fishermen always get the “Red Carpet” treatment. For good cause. “Fishing is dead” does not prove true. Fishing became more valuable. The world hungers for Pacific Northwest pink salad shrimp, Dungeness crab, choice varieties of fish and other delicacies from the deep. Also, of course, the famous local oysters; which are an agricultural product of the water, not fished. The maritime fleet of Garibaldi participates in other relatively unsung but important activities such as transportation, laying cable, research and development and

work as first responders. The charter and sport fishing fleet have long entertained guests from all over the globe with salmon, bottom fishing and some of the best bird watching the Audubon Society has ever seen (rendezvous with a trawler pulling their net). Focus your camera! These remarkable assets have been underestimated. Maintaining the historic waterways of Tillamook Bay, Oregon’s second largest bay, second only to Coos Bay, and metro Portland’s nearest ocean access will prove to be a very positive return on the investment. Happy 2014! Lorraine Vandecoevering Garibaldi

A farewell to the city After 68 years and three generations, the Ripley family is stepping down from the day to day operations of Tillamook Liquor Store. In 1947, my grandfather Martin Ripley Sr. and grandmother Marion and a gentleman named Mr. Shively started the liquor

store, better known then as the Green Front. Somewhere down the road my grandparents took sole ownership of the business. They ran the store form 1947 to 1969. At that time, my father Martin Ripley Jr. (Rip) took over. Dad ran the store until his passing in January 2007. I started to work for my dad fulltime in 1980 and in 2007 I was appointed the agent for Tillamook, but I never planned on staying 32 years. Now it is time for me to be moving on. I’m going to take a year off and make a bucket list, relax in some warm sunshine and catch up with family and friends and make plans for the next phase of my life. I will miss all the people who have come into my life in the past 32 years. I have met so many awesome people! Their friendships mean the world to me. I will definitely miss the conversations with all my special friends that I have made over the years. Now for all my employees

that I have had over the years: I have been so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with some very awesome girls! They have become a very important part of my life and they were always there for me through every up and down that life gave us. The bonds that have been built will be with me forever. I will so miss the day to day relationships we had. I would like to introduce Tobi Nielsen as the new owner of the store. She is the current owner of Astoria Liquor. She brings five years of experience to Tillamook. She has a great, fun loving personality and lives in Arch Cape so she is only a stone’s throw away. You will see all the same faces at the store; Tobi is a great addition to the community. Now for my last stand for this industry: In November vote no on the privatization issue. Prices will go up, shoplifting will increase and let’s help keep alcohol out of minors’ hands. Jackie Ripley Tillamook


Watch out for holes Please forgive By Joe Wrabek Reporter

One of Tillamook County’s more enduring (and endearing) legends is the one of buried treasure somewhere on Neahkahnie Mountain. Perhaps it’s not surprising. Many of those who came West were hoping to “strike it rich,” and this area was noticeably lacking in “strike it rich” material. Wealth in Tillamook County, then as now, was measured in things you could grow, milk, or catch in the rivers and ocean, and it all required hard work. But there was this mountain, where the local Native Americans said one of their goddesses lived. And they told these stories… Stories of “canoes with wings” (had to be sailing ships, right?) that “spat fire at each other” (a naval battle?), and “men dressed in metal” (soldiers?) who later climbed the mountain and buried something there—along with a “black man” who was supposedly killed on site because the “men dressed in metal” somehow knew the Native Americans would never disturb someone’s grave. And for over 150 years, those stories, told and re-told, have drawn treasure hunters, with their pickaxes and shovels, to Neahkahnie Mountain. The mountain may be part of a state park now, with treasure hunting prohibited, but there are still plenty of holes on that mountain, each marking a spot where somebody didn’t “strike it rich.”

The holes endure because Neahkahnie Mountain, being a big pile of rock, isn’t the easiest thing to go digging holes in, and holes that were dug years ago have tended to stick around—creating traps for unwary hikers and their pets (as happened over this past Christmas break). The legend does seem a bit far-fetched. Yes, it’s quite likely a naval battle could have been witnessed from shore; back in the late 1500s, the English and Spanish had quite a few of those, and some were in the Pacific – and ships from both nations had landed on these shores. But both English and Spanish, even when they plundered each other’s ships, carried the gold and silver off to Europe – they weren’t burying it here. Could it have been pirates? Possibly – but pirates weren’t prone to dressing in armor, and didn’t hang around the Pacific much; there was more traffic (and better plunder) in the Caribbean. And if one is going to bury treasure, why climb a mountain to do it? Isn’t that stuff usually buried near the beach? It’s heavy, after all. The idea that men in armor would be lugging chests of gold or silver up the side of a mountain does not make a lot of sense. Climbing Neahkahnie Mountain from the shore is reportedly a challenge even when you’re not wearing armor. One is tempted to speculate that the Native AmeriSee HOLES, Page A5

I need to preface this letter first by asking everyone who is reading it (and those who are not) to forgive me for all the times in my life that I have judged someone I didn’t know or even those I did know instead of having compassion. I have done this knowingly in my life of that I am sure. Also I am in no way condemning anyone for their actions, I am just asking that we as individuals and as a community stand back and realize what harm our words and actions can cause others, and that even in our grief and our anger we need to find the strength to not allow it to consume us and instead offer compassion, not persecution, to all involved in any situation. Sounds like a beautiful idea right? But the truth is those are real hard words to live by though. So when we find ourselves stumbling, that’s okay too. All we have to do is our best to apologize and our best to make amends, and pray that those we have hurt will open their hearts to accept; if they are unwilling we do not own that anymore. After reading Mac Erickson’s letter about the loss of their beloved dog and all the fall out on Facebook in regards to that tragedy, my heart is so over-whelmed by what is happening to us all. While grief can be over whelming for any of us, persecution of another is more than over whelming. The comments I see range from condolences to the Er-

ickson Family to the revenge to be exacted on the “mail lady.” And when I continue reading all the comments and try to filter out what exactly (besides grief) is being conveyed it seems to me it stems from the accusation that “the mail lady” did not stop and apologize. I believe when we experience such grief and anger our perception does not allow us to see other’s reactions to that same situation, and when they don’t have the same “heart invested” feelings it means their reaction will not mirror ours or ever be enough. And now let’s factor in the “mob mentality” that is now happening. I read a comment on one page that says, “I am in a fantastic position to deal with this issue. I have family up Fawcett Creek and I am on Brickyard. If she doesn’t make this right by yesterday then I will take matters into my own hands. She thinks it’s funny to kill the dogs on her route, well, then she will get a huge kick out of what I got in store for her.” Then when I went to that person’s Facebook page I saw posts of scriptures from the Bible. Really, people? Now we are going to threaten someone with harm? You are not even involved in this. You may be a friend but that is not how you comfort a friend by threatening to harm another individual. I can hear the argument now, “Well that was no threat to her.” Really? Well that’s how “I perceived it” and See FORGIVE, Page A5

Lawsuit Continued from Page A1 Tongue in Portland. The suit was spawned when Land O’Lakes Purina sold feed that sickened and killed almost all of the Kaste family’s awardwinning dairy herd. A toxic combination of minerals mixed into the feed reportedly was sold to the Kastes for several years, leading to the deterioration or death of 140 cows. “These cows were literally dying on their feet,” Foster said. “Dairy farmers are close to their cows,” she said. “The Kastes had names for all of them. They began watching their cows get sick and die before their eyes, and at first they didn’t know why.” The fifth-generation farmers early on were unaware the feed contained dangerously high levels of copper, a standard ingredient in feed for dairy cattle but toxic at high levels if fed to high-producing dairy cows over a long period. Shortly after the Kastes started using the feed, their cows began producing less milk and appeared unhealthy. Over the next two years, the problems worsened. By the end of November 2007, many of the Kastes’ animals had begun dying.

Jetty Continued from Page A1 Michael Saindon. “The whole system is vital.” Not only is the south jetty losing 50 to 60 feet per year, the north jetty, which was repaired just a few years ago, has problems at its “root,” near the county’s Barview Jetty Park. “It needs constant maintenance,” Saindon noted. Rocks from the jetty’s deterioration end up in the channel, Saindon said, and those, coupled with the partly submerged jetty itself, pose a hazard to navigation. “And we have no way to

Or is there a reason at all?

wanted; well I say that isn’t a true statement because she has tried to apologize. She did stay on scene, she did attempt to apologize on the next mail day, but being confronted by anger made that also an impossible task. The post master has tried to apologize it has not been accepted. She has not harmed other dogs. She is a kind and good woman who was raised up by a loving family and God, and she does not deserve this. I have ties to both of these families, my children have ties to both of these families, my granddaughter has both of these families’ blood running through her veins and my heart hurts so bad for everyone of us. There is no “right” in this tragic story anymore, only a deep, deep sense of pain to all involved. To the “mail lady,” I am so sorry that you have had to endure this, you have no shame in my eyes, God knows your heart, and has seen your tears. To the Erickson Family, I am so sorry for your loss, I can’t even imagine the pain that you have at this time, God knows your heart, and has seen your tears. To all the family members, friends, and strangers who have found themselves connected to this, I am so sorry for your pain, God knows your heart, and has seen your tears. And in closing, I just want everyone to know that, I was not there, the “mail lady” and the Erickson family do not know I have written this, and God knows my heart.

aged girl is transported back in time and witnesses the burying of the legendary treasure. However, in the end, she realizes that the real treasure is her home and family (yes, it was that kind of movie). The movie’s conclusion, though, is not bad advice. You are not going to strike it rich digging for treasure on Neahkahnie Mountain. Those enduring legends may be entertaining, but they simply do not make a lot of sense. You get wealth in Tillamook County, now as then, by growing it, milking it, or catching it in the rivers or ocean, and it takes some work. Watch out for holes.

of the Tillamook Bay Habitat and Estuaries Improvement District told the county commissioners. And it continues to deteriorate, she said. “It’s a disaster waiting to happen,” County Commissioner Tim Josi agreed. Its reconstruction is estimated at $1 million. • Some $7 million is advocated by the City of Tillamook for a “Rails and Trails” project that would widen the railroad right-of-way between Garibaldi and the Port of Tillamook Bay and build a trail next to it. • A “regional resiliency” plan, estimated to cost $3 million, follows from an “Oregon resiliency” plan prepared by the state, which suggests that the airport south of Tillamook

might be one of seven to survive a tsunami. Ranked as lower priorities, in no particular order, were the Holden Creek fish passage and flood control, a sewer line from Tillamook to the Port of Tillamook Bay’s industrial park, and repairs to the Port of Tillamook Bay’s blimp hangar. The list is the outgrowth of an annual prioritization meeting held by the commissioners during which local governments and special districts lobby for top-priority projects that could use federal funding. That process mimics prioritization work that used to be done by the state’s Economic Development Department.

Local H&R block under new management By Sayde Moser Just in time for the tax season, the local H&R Block office has a new location, new hours and a new manager. The business has been purchased by Alan Twombly, the area manager for six H&R Block offices along the Oregon coast. Karen Butler will serve as the master tax advisor in Tillamook, as she does for the other five of Twombly’s offices. Butler has been with H&R Block for 16 years, working her way up the ranks from a tax professional. She said she’s excited to be branching

into Tillamook. “Because it’s our new baby, I’ll be [at the Tillamook office] three days a week,” said Butler. What hasn’t changed is the store’s role as a full-service tax preparation firm. “We do everything from minor bookkeeping and balancing personal checkbooks all the way up to corporate tax returns,” Butler said. “All of the great tax professionals who worked in the old office are with us today,” she said, “plus we’ve hired a few more.” What has changed, besides new management, is the office’s location. H&R Block now is in the coastal plaza near Mainstreet Pizza.

The office hours will be 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays. As the deadline draws nearer for filing tax returns, Butler said, it’s important to be aware of 4,000-plus tax law changes. “Even if you do your returns on your own, you should still bring them by the office for our second look,” she said. “We make changes in two out of every three tax returns we review.” H&R Block employees will be on hand Jan. 20 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a grand opening at the new location. There will be free hot dogs, cotton candy and coffee, said Butler.

County asked to do limited maintenance on local roads By Joe Wrabek The Tillamook County roads advisory committee recently voted to recommend that county officials allow limited repairs on localaccess roads over the next 10 years – under specified conditions, within a limited budget and with the adjacent property owners footing part of the bill. Local-access roads are defined as those never taken into the county’s road system. Many were never constructed to county standards. There are 35 miles of local-access roads in Tillamook County. County officials used to maintain the roads, but

stopped in 2008 when federal forest funds, the mainstay of local road funding, headed for zero. Since 2008, the county has repaired localaccess roads only in an emergency. The issue of repairing them was brought to the roads advisory committee in December by Pacific City resident Larry Rouse. Rouse pointed out that one such road, Elderberry Lane, was designated a tsunami evacuation route on official maps, yet it was almost undriveable. The committee agreed to address the issue in detail in January. On Jan. 6, county public works director Liane Welch presented a plan to be proposed to the county commis-

sioners that would allow the one-time repair of local-access roads on a case-by-case basis. The commissioners would need to approve each one, Welch noted. And at least one of several conditions would need to be met: • The road would have to be a documented evacuation route • Property owners would need to pay 25 percent of the cost of repairs • Or a county-maintained road would need to be identified as part of the problem (such as the Pacific City case, where the county’s Riverview Road is draining onto Elderberry) • The project would require the public works direc-

tor’s approval • And maintenance of the local-access road after the project was completed would fall to the adjacent property owners. “To me, this is just opening a big can of worms,” cautioned roads committee member Gus Meyer. Meyer suggested limiting the amount that could be spent on local-access road repairs – the committee adopted Paul Carbaugh’s suggestion of a cap of 10 percent of net transient lodging tax revenues – as well as a “sunset” provision. Once the county road bond money is gone 10 years hence, funds available for road repair will be a lot less, he said.

Bylaws originally stated that only the interest accrued on principal during the fiscal year period could be awarded as scholarships. The scholarship committee had 15 members and worked hard to raise money for the scholarship fund through raffles, golf tournaments and rummage sales. The first scholarship awarded was in the amount of $250.00 to James Moore in 1982. To date, $175,616.00 has been awarded to one hundred forty-four graduates. The Board of Directors consists of 10 members with five of them being original members. They include Secretary Dorothy Hooley, Treasurer Jerry Underwood and his wife Sally, Fred and Donna Marr. The other members are President Steve Vanderhoef, Vice-President Chris Hooley, Tami Schild, Dave Stephens and Gunnar Monson.

John Vincent Syperda Netarts area resident John Vincent Syperda passed away Jan. 10 at 71. The son of John and Anna Syperda, he was born in Patterson, N.J. John led a rich and varied life, beginning by leaving rural New York for the Navy. He trained as a radio technician and served on the Cuban Blockade and on The Presidential Honor Guard in DC. His distinguished record led to a career as an officer in Fullerton Police Department, Calif. In 1978 he was named Officer of the Year. John was then successful in the competitive Tech Industry boom of the 80’s, working for Research Inc. on Space Shuttle apparatus, and later for Video Tec, where he met his future wife, Alaura. They moved to Crestone, Colo. in 1989, where he designed and built their home and a 3,000-square-foot home for Alaura’s parents. They re-settled near Netarts in 2002 crafting original crystal suncatchers for wholesale markets. Their Motto: “May Rainbow Light Be Yours!” John is survived by wife, Alaura; son Tyce; daughters Heather Brown and Becky Shiveley, and granddaughter Alicia Shiveley.

NKN girls tied for third in the Northwest League NKN: 32 Knappa: 29 by Chelsea Yarnell “They came to play tonight,” Neah-Kah-Nie Head Coach Corey Douma said after his girls’ team won 32-29 over the Knappa Loggers Friday night. “The game wasn’t perfect, but they hustled all the time and worked hard. Good things happened.” The Pirates kept a lead over the Loggers the entire game, but several turnovers gave Knappa more time with the ball. NKN lead 26-16 in the third quarter, but errors on the Pirates’ part caught up with them when Knappa made it a threepoint game near the end of the game. “[We’ve] still got a few things to work on to make the fourth quarter easier on everybody, but we haven’t beaten Knappa in three years,” Douma said. Knappa’s tight defense forced the Pirates to play their most aggressive game of the season, and it paid off. “You’re never going to play a perfect game, but we were able to move past those mistakes and keep moving on. We did what we needed to do to win.” NKN’s Annie RohwederRomig led the team with eight points, followed by Brittany Scull with seven. NKN: 31 Vernonia: 50 The girls traveled to Ver-

Douma acknowledged that it would be a tough test, and it proved to be so. The Pirates lost 31-50. The NKN girls are tied with Knappa for third place in the 2A Northwest League with a 3-2 record.

Not quite ready for the 199mile relay race at Oregon’s Hood to Coast? Then come get a taste of shorter team race at Tillamook’s Three Capes Marathon Relay. Hosted and directed by Tillamook Head Cross Country Coach Patrick Zweifel, the event will be held March 1 at 9 a.m. as a fundraiser for the Tillamook Cross Country program. “I’m organizing this and donating the money to our Grand Canyon hiking and camping trip this spring and if successful enough for strength building exercise equipment (medicine balls, etc.),” Zweifel said. The 26.2-mile race will go from Cape Meares to Pacific City along the Three Capes Scenic Loop. According to the race’s website, the course will run by six State Parks, two National Wildlife Refuges, and multiple county parks. Along the route, runners will also be able to catch views of Tillamook Bay, Netarts Bay, and the Pacific Ocean. “I think this could become a great thing for the community of Tillamook,” Zweifel said. “Just in the first few days I’ve been marketing this race, the feedback has been overwhelming from out-of- town runners.” The race can be run as a whole marathon, as a half-

marathon with a partner, or with a full five-person team assigned to different legs of the race ranging from four to seven miles. “Relays are a great team event,” Zweifel said. “Running or walking 4-7 miles is not too overwhelming and being able to complete this challenging marathon course as a team is really special.” Various divisions and categories are available for teams to compete within, such as: family, business, and Clydesdale (everyone on the team has to be over 200 pounds). “ I think being able to sign up under categories and having team names really gets people into it,” Zweifel said. “I like the fact that businesses can sponsor a team of employees or perhaps a youth team who perhaps doesn’t have the money to sign up.” Zweifel believes that making this an annual event could increase the race’s participation numbers into the thousands, something that would create great business for Tillamook County. The cost of the race is as follows: $65 for the solo marathon, $85 for a two-person team, and $150 for a five-person team. Register before Feb. 15 to receive a race t-shirt.

Tillamook City Council discusses new TRT rates

Joel Lee adopted this adorable dachshund (formerly known as Porkchop) at the Yappy Days event in Pacific City. Lee told the Headlight Herald he would rename his dog Bilbo Waggins.

The council informally discussed the new transient room tax rate proposed by the county commissioners at their June 3 meeting and decided to make it an official agenda item June 17 to try and clarify some of their questions. City Manager Paul Wyntergreen gave the council the rundown, but stated that one of the issues seems to be the new pieces of information that keep coming up. “It’s a lot of information and it is morphing all the time,” he said, adding that the two ordinances on this matter that will be discussed in two public hearings with the commissioners on June 26 and July 10 came in only minutes before the council meeting – making it difficult to review them in much detail. The proposed transient lodging tax (“even the acronyms are shifting as we speak,” Wyntergreen told the council) would appear on the November ballot as a nine percent tax with an eight percent credit back to the cities that already have a TLT of their own. Seventy percent of the money raised would be cycled back into promoting tourism in the county. The other 30 percent has

28 entries and was delayed by rain. (That may have been the last time a parade in Tillamook County was delayed by rain.) The big event that year was the cow milking contest between Tillamook County’s mayors. By 1961, besides the Dairy Parade (which concluded with the crowning of the Dairy Princess), there were milk drinking and ice cream eating contests, a tug-of-war between Lions

Tillamook has always had parades. Tillamook’s first Dairy Parade was in the 1920s, over a decade before the first National Dairy Month was declared in 1939. (Dairy Month had started in 1937 as National Milk Month.) The Tillamook Dairy Parade as we know it today began in 1957. It had

and Kiwanis, and four mayors were still participating in the cow-milking contest. The Tillamook County Creamery Association (TCCA) took over sponsorship of the Dairy Parade in 2003, “to ensure such a historic event was able to continue,” TCCA’s Tori Harm told the Headlight Herald. Today, the Dairy Parade is the third-largest parade in Oregon, and one of the

county’s biggest tourist draws. The parade begins at the Tillamook County Fairgrounds, picks up some of its more than 150 entries along Third Street, and winds through downtown Tillamook. Theme for the 2013 Dairy Parade is “Clowning Around.” The Dairy Parade is followed later that day by the Tillamook County Rodeo, held at the Fairgrounds.

Tillamook County Library staf practice their book cart drill.

Librarians aren’t traditionally associated with kick lines and dancing, but that is about to change as staff and volunteers at Tillamook County Library perform a book cart drill for this year’s June Dairy Parade. Library Director Sara Charlton said they’d been talking about forming a book cart drill team for a few years now. For those of you who don’t know exactly what such a thing is, be sure to check them out

this weekend at the parade– or a quick internet search will bring you up to speed on the growing phenomena. “We just thought it would be a lot of fun to try this,” Charlton said, adding they’ve participated in county parades for 17 years with their book barrel and decided it was time to shake things up. Bill Landeau is coordinating the drill. Landeau had experience with book cart drills at a previous job in Arizona.

Yappy Days benefits Tillamook Animal Shelter By JuliuS Jortner

For the Headlight Herald

Yappy Days took place on Saturday June 15, on the sidewalk in front of the Inn at Cape Kiwanda in Pacific City. More than 100 people and more than 30 dogs attended. Booths offered homemade dog sweaters, treats and toys, face painting for people, raffles of items interesting to humans as well as dogs, dog baths, a microchip insertion service, and general information from the animal shelter. There was a dog wash and Sydney Elliott of Beaver sang with guitar accompaniment. The event, which has been held annually since 2008, is mounted by the Inn for the benefit of the Tillamook Animal Shelter. According to Susanne Johnson, chairman this year, Yappy Days has raised about $5000 for the shelter in the last five years. Among other help they offer, the shelter rescues dogs and finds them homes. Joel Lee came to Cape Kiwanda this Saturday from Eugene expressly to claim the dachshund he’d picked out online. “Yappy Days is another unique happening here. It celebrates the dog-friendliness of the Cape,” said Jeremy Strober, whose three children, Cole, 13, Rachel, 9, and Gus, 16, manned the dog wash operation. According to Rachel, the largest dog they bathed was Maya, a golden retriever; the smallest was Barry, a terrier. Look for Yappy Days next year, same place, Saturday before Fathers Day as usual.

Romig wins Tillamook Junior High at PAC-RIM seeks funds for fitness trail by Chelsea Yarnell Neah-Kah-Nie’s Logan Romig had another great weekend of wrestling at the PAC-RIM Wrestling Tournament in Seaside, winning at 138-pounds. Romig defeated Zack Jones of Estacada in the championship round for the title. The podium finish for Romig is only one of several this season. At Neah-KahNie’s home tournament on Dec. 7, Romig finished first at 145 pounds. He also earned third place at 138 pounds at the Culver Wrestling Invitational Dec. 13-14, and most recently placed second at the Castle Rock Invite in Washington, Jan. 4 at 138-pounds. Alejandro Quintana also competed well at the PACRIM tournament and finished second at 145-pounds. Rebecca Savage earned fourth at 113-pounds, both contributing to the Pirates team score. “I feel like the team is progressing at a nice rate. I believe our seniors are having great seasons and are really stepping into leadership roles and thriving,” NKN Head Coach Greg Kelley said. As a team, NKN finished in ninth out of 16 teams with five individual placers all in the top five. “I thought all of the kids wrestled tough, not just the five that placed,” Kelley said. “I was very proud of all of our wrestlers and thought we competed well.” Yet, the team’s success this season is only a small portion of what they hope to achieve at championship time.

“All in all I’m very proud of the effort that the entire team has put forward this season,” Kelley said. “Wrestling is not an easy sport, frankly in my opinion it is the toughest sport a high school athlete can take part in. Anyone that is willing to go through the workouts and time commitment of the sport has earned a lot of respect in my book.” With a month and a half till the state championship, Kelley looks forward to his team’s performance in January and beyond. “I like to think of January as the decision month. This is where you decide what kind of wrestler you will be this year, either one that works hard and forges their own destiny or one that simple lets things happen.” This weekend the Pirates varsity squad will travel to Redmond to compete at the Oregon Classics. “We are still a young team that needs to keep working hard and improve everyday.. I look forward to getting to compete against some teams we either haven’t seen this year or have only seen a few times,” Kelley said of this weekend. PAC-RIM Armed Forces Tournament Results for Neah-Kah-Nie (complete results online): 113 - Rebecca Savage (910) placed 4th 120 - Ofni Vargas (3-2) placed 5th 138 - Logan Romig (19-2) placed 1st 145 - Alejandro Quintana (18-6) placed 2nd 220 - Troy Martin (7-6) placed 4th

Bobcats lose to best in league during OT Nestucca: 29 Faith Bible: 65 by Chelsea Yarnell Jan.7’s game against Faith Bible was a struggle for the Bobcats. “Their style of play and athleticism gave us fits and we couldn’t find any answers,” Head Coach Jim Kiser said of the team’s 2965 loss. And it didn’t help that starter Keenan Wenrick sat on the bench with a bad knee, really throwing off the Bobcat’s offense. However, Nestucca collected themselves and played close games against the best teams in the league this past Friday and Saturday. Nestucca: 44 Gaston: 56

against Portland Christian, Bobcat’s Max Kirkendall hit a two-pointer and sent the game into overtime. But, the team was not able to clinch the win in the extra period. “The games Friday and Saturday proved that we can play with the best teams in league, now we just need to make the jump over them,” Kiser said. The Bobcats travel to Delphian on Friday.

by Chelsea Yarnell The Tillamook Junior High School is one step closer to adding a one-mile long fitness trail to their property. Heading the project is Tillamook Junior High P.E. teacher Jamie Dixon. Dixon sought to build the trail because the current path is uneven and the junior high students roll their ankles when they run on it. “I wanted to build a trail for students to run on safe-

ly,” Dixon told the Headlight Herald. Fundraising for the project started nearly a year ago and is estimated to cost $38,000 to complete. The projected trail will be completely paved and follow the perimeter of the Tillamook Junior High School. The trail will also include ten fitness stations along the route. Dixon hopes to have enough money to add lights for safety on the trail. Nearly $3,000 has already

been fundraised through the Splash and Dash 5k held on April 6, 2013 at the Port of Tillamook Bay. Another $8,000 was donated by the Reser Family Foundation whom have also committed to donate another $8,000 if Dixon can raise $16,000 from the community. According to the Reser Family Foundation’s website, “the Foundation makes innovative, transformational and charitable contributions in the areas of the arts, educa-

tion, environment and health that can result in broad public benefit in Oregon.” Most recently, an anonymous community member has also agreed to match all money raised for the fitness trail from this point on. Dixon hopes to have the project completed before school starts in the Fall of 2014.

The Cheesemakers finished first with 124 points, beating out Astoria in second place with 70 points. The boys finished in second with 104 points, just ten points short of Seaside at 114 points.

This unique meet consisted of only relays, instead of offering the typical individual events. “This is a fun meet for the kids,” Tillamook Head Coach Todd Bush said. “They get a chance to swim events that they would not be able to in regular meets. We swam very well.” The girls won eight relays of the day and the boys won five. Complete results are listed online.

The Cheesemakers will host Astoria this Thursday starting at 4 p.m.

Pirates come up short against Knappa and Vernonia NKN: 41 Knappa: 61

by Chelsea Yarnell Two back-to-back physical games resulted in two 20-points losses for the Pirates this weekend. Friday night, the Pirates lost 41-61 against the Knappa Loggers and then 48-69 to the Vernonia Loggers on Saturday. In Friday night’s game, the first quarter determined the outcome when the Pirates only put three points on the board, one of which was a free throw from Traveion Morris after Knappa received a technical. “We got off to a slow start and were chasing them the whole game,” NKN Head Coach Steve Sherren said. “It was just our three-point first quarter. But, if not for that, I think we played pretty even with them.” The Pirates came within two points of the Loggers at the beginning of the second quarter, but Knappa’s consistent scoring pushed them ahead. “Knappa had pretty even scoring, with three of

their guys in the double digits,” Sherren said. Julian Croman was back for his first home game after suffering a concussion. A knee to the head forced him out of commission and he had to wait for the “doctor’s clearance to come back” Sherren said. “He’s been getting back to game speed.” While Croman joins the Pirates back on the court, Andrew Smith is taking some time off to heal a possible Achilles injury. In the game against Naselle two weeks ago, Smith went up for a rebound and landed funny Sherren said. Smith has been out for the past two games.

On Saturday, the team traveled to Vernonia. After a physical game the night before, the Pirates were short on steam and lost 48-69. “[Friday] took more out of us than we thought,” Sherren said. “We weren’t as quick in our rotations.” And Vernonia’s eight three-pointers throughout the game did not help the Pirate’s cause. “We just caught them on Photo by Chelsea Yarnell a hot shooting night at The NKN boys’ lost both their home when we were games this weekend and fell to flat,” Sherren said. eighth place in the league.

“We respect them, but we’re not scared of them,” Tillamook Head Basketball Coach Greg Werner said a few days before the boys’ game against Gladstone High School. And the final score of Jan. 7’s game clearly shows that the Cheesemakers didn’t let any intimidation of playing the number two 4A ranked team phase them. Tillamook upset the Gladiators 57-54. Gladstone started the game off with power, scoring seven points within the first minute of the game and earning another ten to lead the first quarter 17-6. The Cheesemakers adjusted their game, regained composure, and closed the gap at the half 24-28. Gladstone mirrored their first quarter performance by starting the third quarter off with eight points in the first minute. The Tillamook boys’ collected themselves and brought it back to a two-point game at the end of the third quarter, 39-41. Into the fourth quarter, the Cheesemakers saw their first glimpse of victory over the Gladiators when they took their first lead of the night, 44-43, with six minutes to go in the game. Then, it became a game of fouls and free throws. Taking turns at the line, Tillamook and Gladstone each attempted to clinch the win. With a minute to go, the Cheesemakers were down by three, 47-50, but Trent Meyer scored to bring it to a one-point game. Gladstone earned two more free throw points, followed by the same from Tillamook’s Zane Wright. On the next possession, Tillamook forced a foul and Gladstone earned two more points, 51-54. But, Meyer returned with a

basket for the Cheesemakers, keeping Tillamook in the hunt. A Gladstone foul brought Cheesemaker Allen Johnson to the line where he brought in two more points and Tillamook took the lead for the second time of the night, 55-54, with 15 seconds to go. The Gladiators brought the ball down the court as the seconds ticked away. Gladstone’s guard made a drive to the basket, slipped, and lost control of the ball. Tillamook grabbed the turnover and earned one last trip to the line with a foul from Gladstone. Two seconds remained on the clock. With the deciding points, David Waud swished the first in, but missed his second shot. Gladstone grabbed the rebound, but the couple seconds left on the clock were not enough to change the fate of the game. The Cheesemakers impressively won their sixth game of the season 57-54. The win also increased Tillamook’s 4A state ranking from 17th to 13th. The loss for Gladstone decreased their state ranking from second to fourth.

Nestucca hosts Duals; travels to PAC-RIM by Chelsea Yarnell

Four teams gathered to compete against each other at the Nestucca Duals last Thursday night. The Bobcats were joined by Tillamook’s J.V. squad and teams from Santiam and Dallas High Schools. Nestucca’s wrestling team went 1-2 at the meet, only beating Tillamook’s J.V. 23-18. Nestucca’s Ryan Leslie had the most individual wins of the night for the Bobcats. Leslie had his first win at 138 pounds with a pin over Tillamook’s Taylor Garcia. Leslie followed this winning match with another pin against Cody Janssen of Dallas. Jordan Whittles (113), Norberto Soto-Guatemala (145), Nathan Parks (160), and Wyatt McKillip (170) also all won one of their three matches at the dual. (Whittles def. Tillamook’s Prince; Soto-Guatemala def. Tillamook’s Matney; Parks def. Tillamook’s Deutsch; McKillip def. Santiam’s Grimes). Cheesemakers Ismael Loza (120), Zak Fletcher (132), and Steven Flores (220) each won in their matchups against the Bobcats. (Loza def. Wickenheirser; Fletcher def. Geirl; Flores def. Cook).

the first half, but couldn’t convert and it seemed to zap our energy a bit.” Unable to make some easy shots around the basket and secure a lead at halftime, the Bobcats could not pull off a win in the second half. The Nestucca girls also lost in back-to-back games Friday and Saturday night against Gaston (1738) and Portland Christian (5-53) respectively. “At this point we are still using games to improve and gain

experience and the girls did take some steps forward,” Foster said. “We just have to continue being aggressive and try to get the ball to the rim.” Nestucca will travel to Delphian this Friday.

Successful flex offense and excellent screens made Tillamook Head Coach Danielle Weber feel that her team’s game on Jan. 7 was a success. “I still feel that we are moving forward and still improving even though our games scores may not reflect that,” Weber said. The Cheesemakers lost to the Gladiators of Gladstone 23-51. The girls kept Gladstone within reach the first quarter, 6-9. Aggressive playing on the Gladiators part racked up eight fouls for them within the first quarter. “[We] are used to playing teams that are much [more] physical than us and even bigger and quicker than us,” Weber said. Gladstone started to pull away in the second quarter, and again substantially after the half when they out-scored the Cheesemakers 20-4 in the third quarter. Turnovers really cost Tillamook valuable possession time, as well as poor free throw shooting where the Cheesemakers went 7/21. Despite the loss, Gladstone Head Coach Pat Scott paid a compliment to Weber on how much the Tillamook girls’ team has improved over the last year. “It gives me a great feeling knowing that we are teaching

these girls something and that it shows,” Weber said. “Because of their hard work, we will keep improving.” Tillamook’s record falls to 2-8 overall. The Cheesemakers will play their first league game Jan. 21 at Scappoose. The Mooks travel to Cascade High School this Friday for their next game at 7 p.m. Tillamook: 6 2 4 11 Gladstone: 9 9 20 13 Tillamook scoring-Jamie Kottre 10, Jordan Zweifel 8, Taylor Woods 4, Kaylin Hammond 2, Markita Martin 2 Gladstone scoring-Molly Webster 20, Micala Delepierre 7, Alicia Feb 7, Mikaela Simac

I was very proud of her.” Kottre led the team with ten points, followed by Jordan Zweifel with nine. The Cheesemakers will travel to face Stayton for their last nonleague game of the season on Friday.

Great Speaker series returns with free discussion about gender and society From the moment we are born, gender shapes every aspect of our lives: our interests, opportunities, and how we move through the world. In the twentyfirst century, disparities among the Jade Aguilar genders still prevail, especially the intersections of race, class, immigration status, and geography. What can these disparities tell us about society’s values and priorities? How can we better understand the complexities of gender’s effects on our daily lives and identities? This is the focus of “Mind the Gaps: How Gender Shapes Our Lives,” a free conversation

with Jade Aguilar on Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014 at 1 p.m. at the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum. This Great Speaker series program is hosted by the Pioneer Museum through its Daisy Fund and sponsored by Oregon Humanities. Aguilar is an assistant professor of sociology and women’s and gender studies at Willamette University. Her broad areas of study are gender, sexuality, and family, and her main area of focus is the study of intentional communities. Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state’s future. For more information about this free community discussion, please contact the Pioneer Museum.

Tillamook City Council discusses new TRT rates

The council informally discussed the new transient room tax rate proposed by the county commissioners at their June 3 meeting and decided to make it an official agenda item June 17 to try and clarify some of their questions. City Manager Paul Wyntergreen gave the council the rundown, but stated that one of the issues seems to be the new pieces of information that keep coming up. “It’s a lot of information and it is morphing all the time,” he said, adding that the two ordinances on this matter that will be discussed in two public hearings with the commissioners on June 26 and July 10 came in only minutes before the council meeting – making it difficult to review them in much detail. The proposed transient lodging tax (“even the acronyms are shifting as we speak,” Wyntergreen told the council) would appear on the November ballot as a nine percent tax with an eight percent credit back to the cities that already have a TLT of their own. Seventy percent of the money raised would be cycled back into promoting tourism in the county. The other 30 percent has

Early 4th of July parade in downtown Tillamook.

By Joe WraBek

Tillamook has always had parades. Tillamook’s first Dairy Parade was in the 1920s, over a decade before the first National Dairy Month was declared in 1939. (Dairy Month had started in 1937 as National Milk Month.) The Tillamook Dairy Parade as we know it today began in 1957. It had

28 entries and was delayed by rain. (That may have been the last time a parade in Tillamook County was delayed by rain.) The big event that year was the cow milking contest between Tillamook County’s mayors. By 1961, besides the Dairy Parade (which concluded with the crowning of the Dairy Princess), there were milk drinking and ice cream eating contests, a tug-of-war between Lions

Rose City Banjoliers in the 1958 Dairy Parade.

and Kiwanis, and four mayors were still participating in the cow-milking contest. The Tillamook County Creamery Association (TCCA) took over sponsorship of the Dairy Parade in 2003, “to ensure such a historic event was able to continue,” TCCA’s Tori Harm told the Headlight Herald. Today, the Dairy Parade is the third-largest parade in Oregon, and one of the

county’s biggest tourist draws. The parade begins at the Tillamook County Fairgrounds, picks up some of its more than 150 entries along Third Street, and winds through downtown Tillamook. Theme for the 2013 Dairy Parade is “Clowning Around.” The Dairy Parade is followed later that day by the Tillamook County Rodeo, held at the Fairgrounds.

would like to say welcome to the new Wheeler City manager Geoff Wullschlager; he will be joining the Wheeler City staff full-time at the beginning of February. Geoff has a master’s in public administration degree from PSU with a strong background in financial and budget analysis and project management. Stop by Wheeler City Hall next month and say Hello to Geoff Wullschlager the new Wheeler City manager. With the sad departure of planning commissioners Terri Michelsen and Hall Grimnes who have both volunteered for the planning commission and have in turn helped the city of Wheeler beyond measure, but with their departure the city has openings in the planning commission department and would like to have any applications to participate in the community of Wheeler and helping plan their future; if you are interested please call or stop by the Wheeler City Hall for an application. Turning towards Manza-



going-away party for port manager Kevin Greenwood has been scheduled for next Wednesday, Jan. 22, 4-6 p.m. at the Garibaldi Museum. Bad news and good news from your friendly post office. The price of postage stamps goes up Jan. 26; a first-class stamp is going to cost you a whopping 49 cents. That’s the bad news. The good news is the Postal Service has these “Forever” stamps, that continue to be good for first-class mail in the future, no matter what the price goes up to – and you can get them cheaper if you buy them before Jan. 26. (I know some people who are stocking up.)

nita, their new visitor’s information center and public restrooms at the corner of First Street and Laneda Avenue are almost complete. They will be having the Grand opening on Saturday, Jan. 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Everyone is invited to stop by and take a look at the new facilities. The Manzanita Business Alliance (MBA) is under contract with the city to operate the visitors nformation center with a mostly volunteering staff. Volunteer opportunity: if you are interested in volunteering for working at the center please call the center’s coordinator Dan Haag at 503-812-5510. The Lower Nehalem Community Trust and Food Roots are presenting the sixth annual Pie Day/Night Celebration. This will be on Saturday Jan. 18, 2014 (in honor of national pie day) from 7 p.m. until 8:30 p.m., with an $8 donation to get you in the door. This will be at the Nehalem Methodist Church located at 36050 Tenth St. in Nehalem. This pie auction will have Peter Newman as the auctioneer with special guest Megan “LIZ” Cole. Come and have some fun with this all-you-can-eat pie feast (and ice cream). For more information call 503368-3203 or 503-815-2800; all proceeds from this event support the Lower Nehalem Community Trust.  Get your game on at the NCRD basketball sign-ups. They are already underway.

So if you haven’t signed up get on over to the NCRD and see if they still have availability. Grades first and second are on Mondays and Wednesdays; they started on Jan. 6 and go until Feb. 10 starting at 2:35 p.m to 4 p.m. at the Nehalem School gym with a $40 fee for the season. Grades third through fifth are on Tuesdays and Thursdays; they started on Jan. 7 until Feb. 13 starting at 2:35 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Nehalem School gym with a $40 fee for the season. Pre-K will be on Fridays and started on Jan. 10 until Jan. 31 and they start at 1:15 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the NCRD gym with a $15fee for the season. Kindergarten will be on Fridays and started on Jan. 10 and going until Jan. 31 starting at 2:35 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. at the Nehalem School gym, with a $15 fee for the season. NCRD staff will pick up children after school and transition to basketball practice. For more information call 503-3687644 or e-mail YMCA league play is available for an additional fee for grades 3-5th. Please inquire when registering. Happy Birthday this week to Sherman Miller of Nehalem, Thomas Yadon of Nehalem, Tiffany Grimes of Newberg, Kevin Pomeroy of Portland, Kurt Geiger of Vancouver Washinton, Steve Jensen, Bill Cardwell, Glenn Stroh, and Daryl Davidson.

Postmaster Judy is starting work on the Crab Races -- they happen in mid-March, which is not far away as events go – and she is looking for volunteers, to do all sorts of stuff. Please see her at the post office. Remember, this is the Garibaldi Lions Club’s biggest fundraising event of the year, and it takes a small army of people to pull it off. Please help. Friday, Jan. 24 is the first performance of TAPA’s latest play, The Pajama Game. This is a musical, directed by Kelli McMellon. Roberta Bettis from Garibaldi is in it; so are Annie Bishop, Robert Bishop, Matthew Brasil, Julie Bucknam, Gerry Cortimilia, John Davy, Karen Downs, Bill Farnum, Lisa Greiner, Cyndi Lewis, Wally Nelson, TJ Newton, and Liz Tosch. It’s a play about love – and union activity – at the SleepTite Pajama Factory (which is where the title came from); there’s even a strike for higher wages. The original Broadway hit by George Abbott and Richard Bissell (with music and lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross) is based on a

novel by Richard Bissell, 7-1/2 Cents (the amount the workers struck for). Expect a lot of singing and dancing; you’ll probably remember a lot of the songs – they’ve become popular musical standards. There will be performances of The Pajama Game Friday and Saturday nights, Jan. 24, 25, and 31, and February 1, 7, and 8, all at 7 p.m., and two Sunday matinees, Jan. 26 and Feb. 9 at 2 p.m., all at The Barn Community Playhouse. Opening night Friday, Jan. 24 will feature the now-standard champagne reception. You’re getting this headsup early because TAPA performances have had a habit of selling out early; it’s a good idea to reserve your seats as early as you can. Reserve seats by contacting Diamond Art Jewelers, 503/842-7940. Remember that city hall, the library, port office, post office, and bank will be closed Monday, Jan. 20 for the Martin Luther King holiday. The Garibaldi city council, which would normally meet Jan. 20, will meet the next night, Tuesday, Jan. 21.





y dining room serves as an art studio these days while I prepare four wood panels for display and sale at “Your Heart’s Desire,” the Community Arts Project’s annual celebration of wine, chocolate, and art that raises funds for arts instruction in Cloverdale and Garibaldi Elementary Schools. The event kicks off with a free show from 12-5 p.m. which will offer early bird access to two dimensional art on panels as well as three dimensional art and sculpture with artist demonstrations from 1-3. The wine and chocolate gala opens at 6:30. Besides the art show, it will feature all you can eat sweet and savory treats, wine and other beverages, a silent auction, raffle, and live jazz. You don’t want to miss this party; it’s a chance to dress up with your valentine and support a good cause.


BARBARA BENNETT 503-842-7487


ope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Although I didn’t’ spend Christmas Eve and Christmas day with Steve, Jackie, Chelsea, Justin and Aidyn as planned since Jackie was very sick, evidently with the flu, I spent Christmas Eve with Eric, Brooke and Sydney at their house. Jeff, Trevor and Dillon and Mark and Elaine were all there so it was a good Bennett get together. Sorry that Jackie was so sick. Steve and Jackie had just come back from a week in Kuaii with 80+ degree weather and they said that they had a wonderful time there. Maybe get together around my birthday in February which isn’t so far away. There were all kinds of snacks and drinks at Eric and Brooke’s and lasagna and baked ham and desserts, so we sure didn’t go hungry.

Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door and may be purchased by calling 503-3924581. Meantime, Nesko Women meet at 11:30 this Friday, January 17 at the Hudson House Bed and Breakfast Inn. Lunch will include Chef Salad with chicken if you wish, bean salad, polenta soup with bacon, dessert, and coffee for $12. Patsy Webber will present the program on Women’s Wellbeing. Attendees are asked to re-gift a small item for the raffle basket, and invited to contribute large packages of dry cereal and energy bars for the Good Neighbors program, and/or books, games, puzzles, CD’s, DVD’s, or jewelry for July’s sale. Guests are welcome, call Trudie Metschan, 503-392-4798. Thanks to Ielean Rouse for word that the Pacific CityWoods CAC meeting happens this month at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 20 at Kiawanda Community. The guest speaker is Patrick Wingard of LCDC; he will be presenting Understanding Land Use Planning on the Oregon Coast, Part 2. For more information, call 503-9653600. The dangers of a workplace romance are explored to hysterical effect in TAPA’s new play, The Pajama Game. Bright and brassy, this uncon-

ventional, fast-paced Broadway favorite is a solid, classic musical comedy. Performances are at 7 on Jan. 24, 25, 31, and Feb. 1, 7, 8, at 7 p.m. and at 2 on Jan. 26 and Feb. 9.  Reservations are available by calling 503-842-7940. Grammy nominated pianist Andrius Zlabys will present the next concert in Neskowin Chamber Music’s twentieth season when he performs at 3 on Sunday, Jan. 26 at Camp Winema.  Zlabys has appeared throughout the world as both soloist and chamber musician.  A prizewinner at the 2003 Cleveland Piano competition, he performed with the New York Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony, and the Cleveland Orchestra, among many others. Camp Winema is located three miles north of Neskowin, just west of Highway 101. Individual tickets for $25 are available at the door; call 503-965-6499 for more information or a reservation.  Happy birthday this week to: Brandon Aase, Sue Beachy, Kelvin Caspell, Justin Christiansen, B.J. Clark, Whalen Dillon, Chris Eckhardt, Marc Gatchett, Marsha and Paige Hale, Taylor Haltiner, Eric Hays, Jason Hill, Kari Ross, Richard Love, Sandra and Waylon Porter, Wilda Schmitz, and Caleb Slavens.

We had gift exchanges and that is always a lot of fun, especially when the younger group is there. David came over for breakfast Christmas morning and we went though the day looking at old slides. Some had faded out a lot even though they were in the carousel boxes. The newer ones were very bright and we enjoyed looking at all of them. Memories about times long past and forgotten. New Year’s Eve was the usual at our house, watching the New year come in on television. New Year’s Day was a day of football and that took up the afternoon. Glad the Seahawks are still at the top of their league and last Sunday the San Francisco ‘49ers won over Green Bay Packers. Was surprised at the outcome of that game as the ‘49ers were behind 10 and 12 points most of the game and even down by 16 points at one time. We couldn’t have asked for better weather over the holidays. The travelers were very lucky here in the Northwest. Nothing like they have been having all winder east of the Rockies. It was down to 27 degrees here in Cape Meares when I had planned to drive to Forest Grove. David offered to drive my car and the outside temperature was around

27 to 29 degrees all the way over the Wilson River Highway. Frosty sides of the road, on grasses and bushes, but the road was mostly dry except around a few corners and bridges. When the weather changed from freezing and below, I came back to Cape Meares and no sign of frost all the way. A telephone call from Barbara Engelen let me know that she and George and JoAnn Widmer got together to decide what to do abut a class reunion this coming summer. It is a lot of work to get initiation out and there are so few of the Tillamook High School Class of ’49 that it was decided to not have a regular reunion fair week. Instead we plan to be at the Tillamook Pioneer Fair Booth at noon Saturday of the fair. Anyone of our class who wants to meet there can bring a lunch or buy a lunch and there is a table at the Pioneer Fair Booth where we can visit. Hope this will work for this year. The far away people will probably not be coming anyway and there are maybe only a dozen or so who are closer and will come. We hope to see our classmates again and be updated on their lives. I will put any changes or information in this column when it gets closer to August.

have absolutely spectacular news about my brother. As you know, he has been battling pancreatic cancer for a year now. On Dec. 31 he had a cat scan of his abdomen and it now shows no defined mass in his pancreas. I thank each and every one of you for your prayers and well wishes. Our family is celebrating the New Year, and thanking God for this miracle. Please continue your prayers. They will continue maintenance chemo for a while. The big event of the month is the “Chili Bowl Cook Off” Sat, Jan. 25, 12-4 p.m. You can actually sample chili cooked by local fire departments help decide which is the favorite. There will be People’s Choice Trophies for the best chili and the best cornbread. A Chili Bowl Trophy will be awarded to the team with the highest overall score. The event is taking place at Neahkahnie High School in Rockaway Beach. You will also find live entertainment and craft vendors. All the proceeds will benefit the Oregon Food Bank Tillamook County Services. The cost is $5 plus 2 cans of food. I will see you there! What fun it will be.

t is difficult for me to write this column. Are there important upcoming dates? Yes. Are there things happening around town that are newsworthy? Yes. But today I find myself not being able to write about anything other than the one thing that is facing so many of us. Flu season is here. I just heard that the commander of the VFW Post 2848 here in Bay City is in the hospital in ICU from severe symptoms from the flu. Prayers go out for his recovery. If I do nothing else today I hope the following information is taken by all of you seriously. I was able to receive this information thanks to Gordon McCraw. Influenza is caused by a virus spread person-to-person, through the air and on hard surfaces in droplets from sneezes and coughs. Illness from the flu can last for 10 days or more. Symptoms include sore throat, coughing, runny nose, congestion, fever, muscle aches and headache. For some people, the flu can be a very serious, even deadly disease, which could lead to secondary infections such as pneumonia. In Oregon, the influenza season is quickly ramping up and most cases are H1N1. Every flu season is different, and influenza can affect people differently. Even healthy children and adults can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others. Vaccination is the most effective way to prevent flu infection, and the best way to protect yourself


modeling and maintenance of our “jewel of the city.” To remind you, this project has had no city or outside funding for improvements, and has been financed wholly by volunteer workers, and donations from our citizens and the public. The park is located off of Hwy 101 between North 2nd and 3rd behind where the gas station used to be. The city has agreed to accept and set up an account for this project. If you would like to help, make your checks out to the City of Rockaway Beach, but designate that the donation goes to Seaview Lake and Park Restoration. It’s so wonderful to watch this little lake turn from an eyesore to a beautiful destination. Call Terry Walhood 503-355-0782 if you would like more info. It’s getting closer. The Meals for Seniors will be having their Roast Beef Dinner Jan. 25. Dinner is 3-7 p.m. Cost is $7 pre purchased or $8 at the door. It is at St Mary’s Hall at 275 S. Pacific. This is a wonderful fundraiser for some awesome folks. Some wonderful folks would like you to know about their group that meets the first and fourth Thursdays of the month. The Circle of Caring meets at St Mary’s Hall from 10-2pm. They sew, knit, and crochet items for special projects in the county. This is a worthwhile cause and if you would like to share your talents, anyone in the county is welcome to join these wonderful folks. A special positive thought for you. “The key to happiness is realizing that it is not what happens to you that matters, it is how you choose to respond.” That’s Rockaway Beach, “Sugar Coated!”

and your community from illness. The CDC recommends everyone aged 6 months and older should receive an annual influenza vaccination. Children 6 months through 8 years may need two doses depending on previous flu vaccine history, so it is important to talk to your child’s healthcare provider. A seasonal flu vaccination is especially important for people with chronic medical conditions, pregnant women, for healthcare workers, and for people living with or caring for babies six months and younger, or others who are unable to be vaccinated because of health reasons. The vaccine is available, but people may need to call their provider or pharmacies to locate vaccine near them. Each year, scientists determine which flu strains are likely to cause the most disease in the coming flu season and include them in the flu vaccine. The 2013-14 trivalent seasonal flu shot protects against: H1N1, H3N2 and influenza B/ Massachusetts. A new quadrivalent vaccine includes those three strains as well as B/Brisbane. In addition to vaccination, these preventive measures can help stop flu and other diseases from circulating: • Cover your cough and sneeze. • Wash your hands often. Use soap and warm water. • Stay home when you’re sick. Protect others at school and work by staying home at least 24-hours after your fever (100+ degrees) subsides (subsides without fever reducing medicines). • Take antiviral medications if prescribed. • Clean surfaces. Flu germs can live for hours on hard surfaces. Make sure your home and workspace are wiped down frequently, especially where children are playing. Have a great week, get your flu shot, and I will see you around town!

Bring your local news home for the holidays!

Time is running out, isn’t it? I magine someone told you that you only had one year left to live. How would that change your life? A death watch. Tick tock. Tick tock. The seconds left in your life are slipping away. No, I’m not being morbid. Now you can buy Tikker, a watch that counts down the number of years, months, days, hours, minutes, and yes, seconds, until you die, so you can watch on a large, dot-matrix display as the seconds you have left on Earth disappear down a black hole. No, this isn’t a Twilight Zone plot. Fredrik Colting, a 37-year-old Swedish gravedigger, says he invented the gadget he calls Tikker, the happiness watch. It’s his belief that watching your life slip away will remind you to savor what you have left. Every time you look down at your watch, you will be motivated to make the right choices. While death is nonnegotiable, Fredrik says, apparently a card-carrying philosopher, life isn’t. The good news is that life is what you

make of it. No, don’t help. I can guess the bad news. All we have to do is learn how to cherish the time and the life that we have been given, to honor it, suck the marrow from it, seize the day, gather ye rosebuds, follow you dream or any other cliché. And the best way to do this is to realize that the time passing will never come again unless you’re Buddhist (they get do overs) and to make the right choices. Or as Steve Jobs said, the most precious resource we all have is time. Did I mention Steve Jobs is still dead? To set up the Tikker, users fill out a questionnaire that

thing but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a seven and a half cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between

management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well. Bright and brassy, this unconventional, fast-paced Broadway favorite is every bit the embodiment of legendary director George Abbott at his brimming with songs and dances which have become popular and musical theatre

standards (among them “Hey There,” “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway”) and features plenty of splashy, fun production numbers. Performances: Jan. 24, 25, 31 and Feb. 1, 7, 8, at 7 p.m. and Jan. 26 and Feb. 9 at 2 p.m. Reservations available at 503-842-7940.

out the worst in us, makes us xenophobic, makes us want, if we’re going to die, to do it with our own kind and so we disparage those who are different, discriminate against handicapped, other races, religions, etc. So whether Tikker will make you happy or a xenophobic serial killer is still unknown.

And a 2011 study has shown that thinking about death makes you more generous, more likely to donate your blood. But that’s not the whole story. Other research suggests the effect can be chilling, a sort of incessant grim reaper reminding you that time is running out. Thinking about our own mortality can bring
