Headlight Herald WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2014

Headlight Herald names new publisher Tillamook native Adam Schwend has been named publisher of the Headlight Herald. Schwend was hired in August 2013 as a salesman at the newspaper, quickly working his way up to director of Adam sales. Schwend As publisher effective Jan. 13, he now oversees all departments of the company, including news, production, sales, circulation and administration, said Steve Hungerford, CEO of the Headlight Herald’s parent organization, Country Media Inc. “The Headlight Herald was a huge part of my connection to the community growing up,” said Schwend. “I think my grandmother has clippings of every time my name has ever been mentioned in it. “It’s actually very humbling. Being at the helm of a business that has been an institution in this community for 125 years isn’t something I take lightly.” Schwend said his family has been active in the community for four generations as farmers, business owners, laborers and community leaders. “I’ve been to college and I’ve gotten degrees,” said Schwend, “but knowing the history of the people, the government, the families and the businesses of this community is something you have to learn by being part of this community.” He said the Headlight Herald is in the midst of reinventing itself to meet the information and marketing needs of a changing population. “The way people are getting information is changing, and Tillamook County isn’t See SCHWEND, Page A3

They remain afloat Despite being told to dismantle their family’s barge, the Ebels are proceeding with missionary work By Sayde Moser

Eddie and Denise Ebel stand near the dock where their family’s barge is being dismantled. The couple and their 10 children are storing the sections of the barge until they can find another suitable spot to complete its construction.

The sun came out last week just in time to shine on the Ebel family as it went to work dismantling its unwieldy barge. The vessel has been harbored in Bay City – temporarily – while the family of 12 works to remove it from the bay. “It was built to be modular,” said Eddie Ebel, “so this has been a good test to see just how modular it is.” The Ebels have been tested aplenty. The family’s relocation of its barge from the Old Mill Marina to Crab Harbor on the Tillamook Bay side of Kinchloe

Point prompted investigations by the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office’s marine deputies, the Department of State Lands (which owns the land under Tillamook Bay) and the U.S. Coast Guard. The Ebels were offered 30 days to use an unimproved boat launch in Bay City to dismantle and remove their vessel from the bay. Eddie and his wife, Denise, might not know the next step of their journey, but they’re confident the journey will continue. “There’s been a lot of blessings already,” said Denise Ebel.

Break a leg Local production of ‘The Pajama Game’ is set to delight audiences By Sayde Moser If you’ve ever wondered about the unintended consequences of a workplace romance, look no further than the Tillamook Association for the Performing Art’s newest production, “The Pajama Game.” It’s the story of workers at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory, who are about to go on strike for a small hourly raise. The tension threatens the budding romance of the factory’s new superintendent, Sid Sorkin, and Babe Williams, who spearheads the workers’ grievance committee. The local performance showcases “a lot of great music, high energy and it’s just great fun,” says director Kelli McMellon. “Almost every scene has a song.” This is McMellon’s second time directing ‘The Pajama Game.” The first was about seven years ago at Nestucca Jr./Sr. High School in Cloverdale. McMellon said this latest production fits nicely within the confines of The Barn, the performing group’s theater facility. “This show really fits beautifully on this stage,” she said. To assist with the play’s choreography, the arts association brought in

Salmonberry trail plan gets a boost in status By Joe Wrabek What began as an informal group of people with a pipe dream slowly is developing into an official regional project. The Salmonberry Coalition, thanks to Oregon Senate Bill 1516, is about to take on a more formal status, said state forester Doug Decker during a recent meeting of the coalition. The Salmonberry Coalition has been meeting informally to plan construction of a trail along the more than 80 miles of Port of Tillamook Bay railroad right-of-way originating at the blimp base south of Tillamook and running to the city of Banks in the Willamette Valley. Much of that trail – from the mouth of Salmonberry Canyon in the Oregon Coast Range to Tillamook – would parallel a rail line that’s still in use. That line is leased to the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad, which has dubbed the project “Rails and Trails.” Senate Bill 1516, being intro-

profit organizations and other stakeholders,” to develop a plan to build the Salmonberry Trail. “It gives us clear authority to work on the project,” Decker said. The bill also directs the two state agencies to have the Salmonberry

Trail plan completed by Oct. 1, 2015. Retired state forester Ross Holloway has offered the Tillamook Forest Heritage Trust, which he now heads, as a repository for donations for the trail. The trust was originated to coordinate fundraising for the Tillamook Forest Center, he said, “but our scope and bylaws are broader.” Holloway said the trust already has received a $1,000 donation for the Salmonberry Trail. “We’re on a rollercoaster and just getting to the top,” said Rocky Houston, the recreational trail coordinator for the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. “There’s a lot in front of us, but it’s the fun part.” While the easternmost section of the proposed trail offers connections to the Banks-Vernonia trail and to trails in Stub Stewart State Park, it’s the coastal section – from Wheeler to Tillamook – that’s likely to see initial development, said planner Matthew Crampton. “There’s lowhanging fruit that can make the most impact,” he said.

Tillamook driver involved in serious injury crash

A Tillamook resident driving a semi truck full of lumber was involved in a serious injury crash near Monmouth last week, when the driver of a 1989 Mazda MX6 crossed the centerline and collided into the left side of the truck. Dwaine Merchant, 65, of Tillamook, received minor injuries and was transported to an area hospital. The driver of the Mazda, Hyatt Walberg, 29, from Corvallis, was seriously injured and extricated by firefighters. She was transported by ambulance to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis. Walberg was traveling

northbound at approximately 6:33 a.m. on Jan. 16 on Highway 99W south of Monmouth and crossed the centerline, Oregon State Police reported. The left side diesel tank of the truck was ripped off and spilled diesel across the highway. The truck caught fire and was burned to the ground while firefighters from Dallas and Polk County Fire District No. 1 worked to prevent further spreading. OSP troopers from Salem and McMinnville offices responded to the scene. OSP was assisted by Polk County Sheriff’s Office and ODOT. The highway was closed about three hours.

a house and 40 acres on Miami Foley Road has offered its residence to the Ebels as a place to stay and to store the barge. The Ebels had been living aboard the barge while it was under construction. Eddie, originally from Vietnam, and Denise, from Washington state, were living in New Mexico and home schooling their four biological children when they decided to move to Garibaldi. In 2009, they adopted Denise’s sister’s six children and suddenly became a family of 12. Subsequently, Eddie said, God told him to move as far north as Alaska and to build a barge. He and Denise looked at several places along Oregon’s north coast where they could assemble their craft, and Denise chose Tillamook Bay. Within 24 hours, they had signed a contract with the Old Mill Marina in Garibaldi for a location to construct their barge. “It really looked like the Lord had opened up all the doors,” Denise recalled. The couple was attracted to the marina because of its proximity to a U.S. Coast Guard station, lumber mill and other amenities. But when the insurance provider at the marina said the docks were too dangerous for the Ebels’ project, a year ago the family was forced to relocate. Initially, they were living in a trailer until the barge could house them. “While we were waiting [to build], we wanted to help the community as much as we could,” said Denise. So the family volunteered at the local food pantry, during “Garibaldi Days,” at God’s Lighthouse Church, and helped with the

Meantime, there’s an opportunity in October for a Connect Oregon V grant to build a section of the Salmonberry Trail atop the soon-tobe-constructed Garibaldi-toBarview water line, Houston said. That would get bikers and hikers off a narrow and dangerous stretch of busy U.S. Highway 101. “Two people were killed here in 2011,” said Houston. That short section of trail – just 1.1 miles – is anticipated to cost $2.5 million, he said, because it’s next to the bayside.

Even in 2002, when TAPA purchased The Barn, Nelson said there wasn’t auditorium seating until years later. “We’re still a work in progress,” she said. “It’s been really exciting to see it grow, though.” The theater at 12th and Ivy streets in Tillamook seats 73 and usually sells out, McMellon said. “We have a really great base of fans in Tillamook. We get such huge support from this small town.” Nelson expects that audiences will enjoy the group’s newest venture. “There’s lots of humor that revolves around the romance and the workplace problems,” she said. But, of course, she didn’t want to give too much away.

The County of Tillamook is applying for a $400,000 “brownfields” grant from the federal Environmental Protection Agency to survey contamination near the old railroad line. Houston encouraged coalition members to nominate “catalyst projects” that could be completed quickly. “What section are you interested in?” he asked. “What’s the status of the local planning effort? Is it already funded? Whose jurisdiction is it? If you’re not it, who is?” Nominations should go to The Salmonberry Coalition’s next meetings are Feb. 18 in Tillamook and Feb. 19 in Banks. At that time, the public can review and comment on the plan’s draft goals and objectives. The plan is expected to be 80 percent complete by the time the Salmonberry Coalition meets April 11 at the Tillamook Forest Center on Oregon Highway 6 north of Tillamook.

U.S. senator, Jeff Merkley addresses attendees of the recent town hall meeting at Tillamook Bay Community College. Merkley held meetins in Tillamook and Lincoln City last week.

Merkley addresses flood insurance, timber, milk prices By Joe Wrabek

A bill that will delay increases in flood insurance premiums “has a good chance of being passed,” said Oregon’s junior U.S. senator, Jeff Merkley, during a recent town hall meeting at Tillamook Bay Community College. Merkley has co-sponsored legislation to delay the premium increases, which now “has an overwhelming majority,” he told the Headlight Herald. The Biggert-Waters Act of 2012, which is driving the premium increases, was passed as a “rider,” or unrelated attachment, to another bill and was “very poorly thought out and is causing a lot of trouble,” Merkley said. “It didn’t just happen on the coast,” he added. “North Dakota is very concerned about

this.” Biggert-Waters mandates that the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which runs the flood insurance program, raise premium rates to repay the losses incurred by insurance claims from Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Hurricane Sandy last year. And to make the flood insurance program self-supporting. As for reforming the federal government’s Oregon and California Railroad (O&C) timberlands – once the source of millions of dollars in “payments in lieu of taxes” to county governments – Oregon’s other U.S. senator, Ron Wyden, will be holding a hearing in Washington, D.C., on Feb. 6, Merkley told his audience. Wyden chairs the Senate energy and natural resources committee, which has jurisdic-

tion over any public lands bill. “He’ll take input and shape a bill that can get through the Senate,” Merkley said. Although Wyden’s in line to become the Senate’s finance committee chair if Sen. Max Baucus of Montana is confirmed as U.S. ambassador to China, “he’ll still be very engaged,” Merkley said. Wyden will remain the ranking Democrat on the committee, Merkley noted. An O&C lands bill passed in 2012 by the Republicancontrolled House of Representatives has been threatened with a presidential veto. Nancy Webster of Rockaway Beach and Paul Newman of Oceanside attended the Tillamook town hall to express concerns about logging and pesticide spraying in their communities’ watersheds, which are owned by private

timber companies. “The heart of this is state law,” advised Merkley, a former state legislator. “The governor’s office and Rep. [Debbie] Boone are involved in this,” interjected State Sen. Betsy Johnson. “It turns on a change in the Forest Practices Act,” she said. Following the town hall, Merkley offered his observations on a new federal farm bill, which has yet to pass Congress (it remains tied up in a Senate-House conference committee attempting to iron out their differences). “We’re getting closer,” he said. “Stabenow [Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., chair of the Senate agriculture committee] is optimistic.” Congress reportedly must act before the end of January to prevent a substantial spike in the nation’s retail milk prices.

Garibaldi Muffler & Service Center REPAIR SHOP CLOSING It is with sadness that Sheldon Oil Co. announces the closure of our auto repair shop at Garibaldi Muffler & Service Center on February 1, 2014. After more than 60 years as an auto repair shop at the corner of 7th Street and Hwy. 101 in Garibaldi, and due to increased challenges in the auto repair industry, it is time for us to make a change. GARIBALDI SHELL & GROCERY will continue to operate daily from 5 am - 10 pm offering gas, diesel, propane, and tobacco during our expansion and remodel into a full-service convenience store. We want to take this opportunity to thank all of our loyal and valued customers.

READER’S OPEN FORUM It takes a village

I’ve always known my husband’s job was important. As a paramedic he works long hours responding to 911 calls two days a week. However, when he gets off shift, his top priority is our family and growing his sustainableliving homestead. Tragedy struck our family when, my husband, Josh Blackburn hit black ice on his way home from work on Jan. 4, 2014 and wrecked his car into oncoming traffic. Throughout the past few weeks as I watched Josh’s life go from near-death to the road to recovery, I continue to be blessed and amazed by the people who were there in our greatest time of need. First off, I’d like to send my sincere gratitude and appreciation to Jamie Duval and Don Simenson who were the paramedics to respond on Josh’s call. They took care of him like they would a brother and spent time talking to me at the emergency room regarding Josh’s injuries. I am forever grateful for the job they do along with paid and volunteer firefighters. This community is lucky to have such a dedicated group of men and women who keep us safe. The Tillamook County Regional Medical Center Emergency Department worked quickly and efficiently to stabilize Josh for life-flight

to Emanuel. I am especially grateful for our friend, Rich Brainerd, who was the lead RN on his case and who also took the time to call me with the news. The staff took the time to pray for him before we sent him on the helicopter which gave me a great sense of peace. My thanks also extends to another friend, Clint Galusha, who was the first state trooper to arrive at the scene of the accident and who came to my house to make sure I was okay. I’ve always known my husband’s job was important. What I didn’t know, was how large his “family” really is. From fellow medics, firefighters, police, and hospital personnel. In our time of need, this community has surrounded us with generosity, love, and concern. We could not be more thankful for the life we have and people we share it with. Amy Blackburn Tillamook

We thank you Mayor Shaena Peterson and the city council of Bay City along with Mark Labhart and the county commissioners of Tillamook County should be congratulated for their work on insuring that the postal patrons of Bay City have been represented to the postal service in helping we citizens

and patrons to keep our post office open. Their work and the work of Representative Kurt Schrader’s staff as well as Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden and their staffs have represented Bay City residents as well as rural people and their needs for fair postal service in Oregon are to be commended. The latest budget bill in Washington, D.C. provides that the USPS shall not end Saturday deliveries and most important that Senator Merkley’s push for maintaining rural post offices has not been forgotten and guarantees are in the bill to maintain such post offices. When put to the test, our representatives from city through county to the halls of legislative power in Washington have once again come through for “We the people.....” Many thanks. Dick Diamond Bay City

Our sincerest apologies We are deeply sorry for the loss of the Alexander’s family pet. Both the carrier and I have relayed our sympathies to the family. Tillamook mail carriers are safe drivers with extensive training and experience. Collectively they have logged almost two million miles over the past 10 years and have

been recognized for their safe driving behavior. We regret our role in this accident and have taken appropriate administrative action regarding the incident. Wayne Peterson Postmaster, Tillamook

Am I missing something here? I have been trying, without success, to become a member of the Tillamook YMCA since November. I applied for a “scholarship” (reduced price membership) and was given an application. When I brought it back, I was told that I would get a letter in the mail in two weeks. When three weeks passed, I went back to the Y to discover that no one had looked at my application. I was informed that additional information was needed. When I returned in a day or two with it, I was told that one more piece of information was required. I brought that back and was told (again) that I would get a letter in two weeks. That was before Christmas and I have not yet gotten a letter in the mail nor have I been able to find out what the problem is. Is anyone else dealing with a similar problem or am I alone in this? What do I need to do to get this resolved? Bob Pagani Sand Lake

Tillamook Chamber lauds local triumphs by Sayde Moser More than 300 people gathered recently for the annual Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce awards banquet – the most attendees ever, said Chamber executive director Justin Aufdermauer. The crowd was treated to dinner and appetizers by more than 15 local restaurants, a silent and oral auction, and an opportunity to review some of the Chamber’s accomplishments in 2013. “It was really a year of innovation and opportunity for the Chamber to become more relevant,” said outgoing board president Jennifer Purcell. Besides remaining fiscally sound, the Chamber implemented a new website, replaced its monthly newsletter with a “Monday Memo” email, and developed plans to assist with the strategic mission it had adopted in 2011, she said. The local Chamber also won three statewide annual awards for similar organizations of its size: best tourism publication, best website and best marketing piece. “[The year 2013] was a measurable year,” said Purcell, “as we helped in the placement of four new businesses, continued efforts to relocate two, and were actively involved in the retention of the Franz Bakery

“It was really a year of innovation and opportunity for the Chamber to become more relevant.” Jennifer Purcell, outgoing board president outlet.” As for 2014, current Chamber president Whitey Forsman said the mission is to “continue to promote tourism, business and economic development in the greater Tillamook area.” The Chamber used part of the banquet evening to honor several businesses and individuals for community service: • In the category of developmental project of the year, Pelican Brewing Co. was selected for its continued commitment to Tillamook County’s economy, its investment in revitalizing downtown Tillamook, and for creating jobs and enhancing tourism. Specifically, Pelican Brewing was cited for its new facility at the corner of First and Stillwell in downtown Tillamook. • Imago Dei Photography

Claire Marie McVay My grandmother, Claire Marie McVay, was one of the stubbornest, hardest working, and most entrepreneurial spirits I’ve met. She was born in Danville, Ill. and spent her childhood in various towns throughout the Midwest, finally settling in Washington, where she attended Washington State University. She married my grandfather, Thomas Hall, at 19 and for the next 54 years she and her sweetheart built their life together, from running a chicken farm to building dream home after dream home. They had two daughters, Tamarie Hall and Susan Hangartner, and one granddaughter, me, Sarah Hangartner. After my grandfather passed, Claire became increasingly involved in the Rockaway Beach area, cooking and delivering for the Meals for Seniors program, selling hot dogs for the Lions Club, and trying to clean up the water through her work with the local water board. She met and fell in love with a kindhearted man, Donald McVay, and began a new life. Unfortunately their union was met with physical hardship for both early on. Her husband survives her and I hope that his pain may vanish before he passes. It’s hard to see my family shrink...but I hope I can use my grandmother’s spirit as a guide to happiness and prosperity.

orably discharged in 1965. He returned to Tillamook and briefly operated a Hay Hauling business for three years.  Bill used his natural “gift of gab” to make a successful career in sales. Through the years he worked for Pacific Bottling Company, Tillamook Wholesale, Darigold Feed Company and Land O Lakes Feed.  In 1997 he and his wife, Bonita, started their own distributing business, Blaser’s Distributing, which they owned and operated until his retirement in 2006. Bill loved people.  He loved God. His children and grandchildren were his pride and joy. One of his greatest joys was gathering all the family together to honor family traditions which included sausage making, wine making (and tasting), listening to Swiss Music, playing his accordion and telling old stories. Bill loved the outdoors whether it be spent boating, fishing, clam digging, camping or “putzing” in his garden. He will be greatly missed... especially his laugh.  Memorial contributions may be made to the Tillamook High School Scholarship Fund.  Interment will be held at Sacred Heart Cemetery.  Arrangements in care of Waud’s Funeral Home.

who was hard of hearing, so she signed up with a Portland State University group called the Japanese-American Student Conference (JASC) to study at the University of Hokkido for the summer. While there, she became acquainted with Jack Graves and they hosted subsequent visits of Japanese students of the JASC in Garibaldi where Jack lived and in Portland where Fran lived. Fran and Jack formed a friendship with their first date being on Halloween, 1971. They planned to marry in June, but moved the date up to Valentine’s Day. Fran wanted to be independent so she continued to live in Portland for about a year and a half. Then when she became pregnant with their child, Joshua Kirk Graves, she moved to Garibaldi where they built a much larger house to accommodate their new family. While in Tillamook County, Fran did Home Health and was engaged in many activities relating to spinning and weaving. She and two other ladies were largely responsible for conceiving and building the Latimer Quilt Center. Fran was also chairperson of the SAFE Program at Neah Kah Nie High School and served on the Parish Council at St. Mary’s By The Sea Catholic Church in Rockaway Beach. Jack and Fran enjoyed traveling and spent time in Hawaii, Florida, Mexico and Alaska. They spent two winters in Hemet, Calif. and then Fran was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2006. Fran moved to Salem where health care facilities were available to her until she passed away. She will be missed by her family and many nieces and nephews and her loving husband and children.

Johnson’s “parents were living part-time in Vernonia,” Tuthill said, and his family had been planning to move to Oregon at some point. “To come to Tillamook, there has to be a family connection,” Tuthill said. “Sometimes it’s difficult.” Johnson’s experience will enable the firm to offer a broader range of services, Tuthill said, including commercial services, estate planning, bankruptcy and foreclosure. “My practice was limited, by design, to family law and criminal law,” Tuthill said. “Dustin has lots of experience in a broader range of the law. We’ll be much more of a full-service office than it used to be.” Johnson and his family are living in Rockaway Beach.

Tillamook School District leads the way in teacher training By Sayde Moser By 2020, it is estimated that Oregon schools will need to hire 16,400 teachers – a full third of the current teacher workforce. To address this growing issue, the Oregon Department of Education has funded two TeachOregon partnerships in hopes of implementing new models to prepare teachers for growing classrooms. Each partnership will receive $501,200 over a two-year period. The “Pac-7” partnership is being led by Tillamook School District and includes Tillamook, Sherwood, Newberg, and Woodburn school districts in partnership with George Fox Uni-

Joe met the love of his life, Elizabeth (Liz) Rankin, while living in Blue Lake, Calif. They were married in 1980 and had a son, Daniel, who adopted his parents’ love of the outdoors. They spent many hours together on the waters of the Puget Sound. He enjoyed the work they did together commercial fishing and clamming. He enjoyed his association with his many friends and relatives in the Squaxin Island Tribe. Joe spent many years in the logging and construction industries along the West Coast. The last several years Joe has helped manage and operate Nehalem Marine with his brother Leo. Joe has been instrumental in implementing numerous salmon restoration and flood control projects along the entire West Coast and was considered one of the finest and most skilled operators working in sensitive environmental areas. He seemed to

really enjoy putting something back into the environment that had served him his entire life. Joe will be greatly missed by all that worked with him in that industry. Joe is survived by his wife, Liz Kuntz and son Daniel Kuntz, both of Olympia, Wash.; as well as brothers and sisters Bill and Mary Kuntz of Rainer, Ore., Leo and Karen Kuntz of Nehalem, Dave and Christine Anderson of San Anselmo, Calif., Mary and Gary Tietz, Cupertino, Calif., Eileen Chapman of Darrington, well as numerous nephews and nieces.

PUD won’t appeal transmission line ruling By Joe Wrabek Tillamook PUD said Jan. 14 it will not pursue further appeals of the City of Tillamook’s denial of a conditional-use permit for a proposed overhead transmission line along Front Street. “The board will direct staff to work with the city and see if there is some other resolution we can come to,” said PUD president Ed Jenkins.” A conditional-use permit, which is required by the city’s zoning ordinance, was sought by the PUD and approved last January by Tillamook’s planning commission. But the City Council

subsequently overruled the planning commission and denied the permit. The PUD appealed the council’s decision in April to the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals, which upheld the city’s denial in a decision issued Jan. 3. A transmission line to Oceanside, and a new substation there, is part of the PUD’s four-year work plan, which the PUD board adopted Jan. 14. The planned Oceanside substation reportedly would reduce the load of the PUD’s Wilson River substation on state Highway 6, which supplies power to Tillamook, Cape Meares, Oceanside, Netarts and Bay City.

Tillamook 4-1 at Oregon Classic; NKN’s Quitana wins two matches by Chelsea Yarnell

Wrestling teams from both Tillamook and Neah-Kah-Nie High Schools competed at the Oregon Classic this past weekend at the Deschutes County Fair and Expo Center in Redmond, Ore. This nearly 80 team tournament is the biggest in the state and brings together some of the states’ highest wrestling competitors for a weekend of competition. With so many schools, teams competed in pools made up of four teams from their state classification. Tillamook Tillamook competed in Pool 4 of the 4A division. The Cheesemakers faced Sweet Home, McLoughlin, and La Pine High Schools and defeated each of them. The Cheesemaker’s first place team finish in the pool led them to the 4A quarterfinals were they were defeated by Cascade High School. In the consolation bracket, Tillamook then defeated Marshfield High School 46-24. Logan Weeks (138) and Rafael Gomez (195) had noteworthy performances for the Cheesemakers at the tournament. They each won all four of their matches (results for the consolation matchup between Marshfield were unavailable at the time of press). Weeks started the tournament off by facing Thorin Wilson of La Pine High School, whom Weeks was able to pin within 54 seconds. In the second round, Weeks won by major decision 10-1 over Alyxander Shaw of McLoughlin. For his third match, Weeks once again earned a major decision 12-4 to Travis Petersen from Sweet Home. And finally, in the quarterfinals, Weeks pinned Asa Alexander of Cascade in 1:23.

Gomez also had great performances this past weekend. In the first round, Gomez won 7-3 over Chadon of Jaynes of La Pine. Against McLoughlin High School in the second round, Gomez pinned TJ Simpson in 3:22. In the third round Gomez earned a major decision 13-1 over Troy Hazelton. And in the quarterfinals, Gomez defeated Wyatt Hall 7-1. “[I’m] really proud of these young men. They wrestled hard and it showed at the end of the weekend,” Head Coach Lonnie Eggert said. “[We] came up short of our goal so we need to get back and improve on our wrestling skills.” “The good thing about this group is they will continue to improve right up till the end of the season. I see a lot of potential for growth out of this group of young men.” The Cheesemakers finished the tournament with a 4-1 record and 18 total pins from the team. Neah-Kah-Nie Neah-Kah-Nie High School also attended the Oregon Classic, but did not fair as well as the Cheesemakers. Competing in the 2A/1A classification, the Pirates were placed in Pool 3 with Lowell, Gold Beach, and Imbler High Schools. NKN finished fourth of the four schools. Alejandro Quintana (145) led the Pirates with the most individual match wins for the team. In the first round against Gold Beach, Quintana won by fall over Mac Hagood in 2:56. Quintana received a forfeit in the second match against Imbler High School. In his last match of the tournament, Quintana won by decision 7-5 over Chasen Clayton of Lowell. The Pirates team finished 0-3 for the tournament and the team had nine total pins. Complete results for Tillamook and NKN are online.

The Tillamook boys and girls swim teams hosted Astoria on Thursday. Both Cheesemaker teams won the dual against the Fishermen.

Cheesemakers win dual against Fishermen by Chelsea Yarnell It was another great afternoon for Tillamook’s swim team. The girls and boys both defeated Astoria High School at their dual meet in Tillamook on Thursday. The Cheesemaker boys collected 101 points, compared to Astoria’s 58 points. Several Cheesemakers earned points for the team’s win including first place finishes from: Ryland Pampush in the 100-yard breaststroke (1:18.67), Nickolas Roesener in the 100-yard fly (1:01.93), Dylan Tohl in the 50-yard free (23.97) and in the 100yard freestyle (52.37), and Jed Werner in the 100-yard backstroke (1:07.00). The boys also swept the relay division, taking first in all three events including: the 200 medley relay (Roesener, Pampush, Gerkon,

King; 2:09.34), the 200 freestyle relay (Rocha, Roesener, Werner, Tohl; 1:40.70), and the 400 freestyle relay (Rocha, Roesener, Werner, Tohl; 3:45.31) The girls also won in their dual meet against Astoria, earning 99 points to Astoria’s 47. Individual wins came from: Amanda Bush in the 200-yard Individual Medley (2:47.47), Shelby Kunert in the 100-yard breaststroke (1:21.53), Maddie McRae in the 50-yard freestyle (29.89), Sabrina Polman in the 200-freestyle (2:17.37), Andie Putman in the 100-yard fly (1:15.09) and in the 500yard freestyle (6:27.96), and Emily Reibach in the 100yard freestyle (1:01.93) and in the 100-yard backstroke (1:08.64). The Cheesemaker girls also won the 200 medley relay (Reibach, Kunert, Put-

man, Polman; 2:08.34) and the 400-freestyle relay (Polman, Putman, Bush, Reibach; 4:20.81). Thursday’s meet was the last home meet of the season, and therefore, also the very last home meet for the six Cheesemaker seniors: Dylan King, Amanda Bush, Fatma Davarci, Scott Rocha, Dylan Tohl, and Jed Werner. Each were recognized and honored for their time and dedication to the sport. Complete Meet Results Online

Each year the Oregonian recognizes schools in each classification for their accomplishments in academics, activities, and athletics through the Oregonian Cup and the Oregon School Activities Association. According to the OSAA’s website, “Schools earn points based on their participation and finish in OSAA State Championships and for Top 10 finishes in the OSAA Academic All-State Program, sponsored by the Dairy Farmers of Oregon.” Schools can also earn points for having no ejections in a season, known as the sportsmanship component of the competition. Currently, Nestucca High School is in 13th place in the 2A classification with 380 points. Neah-Kah-Nah High School is also in 39th place in the 2A classification with 145 points. Tillamook High School made the list for the 4A classification in 24th place with 392.5 points. At the end of the spring sports season, the points will be totaled and the school with the highest number of points will receive a trophy from the Oregonian and the OSAA for their accomplishment.

by Chelsea Yarnell The Pirate girls earned two back-to-back wins at home Jan. 14 and 15, not an easy task to accomplish. In their first game against Clatskanie, the girls won 4433. “We played extremely hard, we did some awesome things,” Head Coach Corey Douma said. “We worked the ball inside really well. Brittany [Scull] had a good game inside, which opened up the game outside: Alaina [Holm] started hitting those shots. Overall it was a team effort.” Brittany Scull led the Pirates with 12 points, followed closely by Dana Moore with 11. “We were rolling that game. I don’t know if we used it up last night, but it didn’t look like the same team that showed up tonight,” Douma said of the girls’ game against Delphian on Jan. 15. “Once again, we’re just searching for consistency, night in and night

Yet, many unforced turnovers can paint a different picture of the team. “Hopefully we learn from it and move on and get down to business at practice time.”

1/14 Tillamook: 36 Newport: 41 1/15 Tillamook:76 Stayton: 55 by Chelsea Yarnell The Cheesemakers traveled to Newport High School on Jan. 14 and battled what Head Coach Greg Werner classified as a “grinder of a game.” “We buried ourselves in a hole for the first quarter,” Werner continued, and the team was unable to bounce back. “We just couldn’t get over the hump and they made free throws when we didn’t...we had a basket hit the rim at the last second.”

Danna Moore led the Pirates with ten points, followed by Taylor Winder and Brittany Scull each with six. Wrapping up the week, the girls finished their busy competition schedule with a game at Gaston Friday night. “If we can regain our en-

ergy that we showed against Knappa, we should do alright,” Douma said about his prediction for the game. “If our head’s not in the game, it could be a long night.” But, the Pirates must have mustered up just enough energy for they pulled off their

The game against the Cubs brought the Cheesemaker’s record to 6-6, one of the best in the Cowapa League, and, at the time, tied the Cheesemakers for second place with Yamhill-Carlton, right behind Seaside High School with a 7-5 overall record. But, the Cheesemakers didn’t stop there. On Friday night, Tillamook traveled to Stayton High School to take on the Eagles. In their previous matchup at the Stayton Holi-

Halverson sends NKN Richwine leads Bobcats against Dragons into OT against Delphian by Chelsea Yarnell

Pirates win 41-38

1/14 NKN: 49 Clatskanie: 72 1/15 NKN: 41 Delphian: 38 1/17 NKN: 52 Gaston: 60 by Chelsea Yarnell

Three points down and seven seconds to go against Delphian on Jan. 15, Pirates’ Julian Croman throws in the pass to Traveion Morris behind the arc. Morris goes up for the three-pointer and it bounces off the rim. Freshman Max Halverson scrambles for the rebound as it bounces out behind the arc once again. He gains control of the ball and turns to face the basket. Two of Delphian’s players step up to block the shot, but Halverson finds the gap and sinks a three-pointer as the buzzer goes off. The basket tied the game 37-37 and forced the teams into overtime. The Delphian Dragons earned the first point in the extra period from a free throw, taking the lead 3837. Traveion Morris gained a possession and scored the first field goal in overtime. The Pirates regained the lead at 39-38. A few additional times at the free throw line earned the Pirates three more points and they pulled off the win 41-38. “We were a little more patient on offense,” Head Coach Steve Sherren said about the key to the win. “We got some good looks and shots went down for the guys.” Plus he adds, “It always helps to get a three-pointer at the end of regulation, right?” While a couple of the Pirates were forced out of the

The Pirates battled Delphian into overtime Jan. 15. Max Halverson made a three-pointer at the last second to tie up the game in the fourth quarter. game during overtime, due to too many fouls, Sherren was thankful that Nathan Imholt stayed out of trouble and could play post all evening. “It’s good to be in a close game, but it’s even better when you come out on top,” Sherren said. “We had a couple struggles the past couple games losing by 20, but that was a nice one to get.” Jan. 15’s game was the second game in two nights and the first win of the week for the Pirates. On Jan. 14, the boys faced Clatskanie and lost 49-72. “I think we played well. A lot of those shots we made tonight, we missed last night,” Sherren said of the Clatskanie game. “We missed a lot of shots in the paint, around the key.” In the game against Delphian, the Pirates were able to absorb their bad posses-

sions, because the Dragons had just as many, but Clatskanie slowly claimed their edge with great trips done the court every time. “They had a good possession every time,” Sherren said. “They stayed ten to seven points [ahead of us] and then all of a sudden it went to 12, and then to 15, so it slowly creeps up on you.” For their final game of the week, the Pirates traveled to face Gaston, the number one team in the league. Hanging onto them for awhile, NKN just couldn’t close the gap and lost by eight points, 52-60. The Pirates are 2-5 in the 2A-Northwest League and are ranked seventh out of nine teams.

The Nestucca girls held onto Riverdale for the first quarter, but the Mavericks’ 15-point second quarter, compared to the Bobcat’s four, determined the game and the girls lost 1745 on Jan. 14. “We have our moments where we look really good and can compete with teams,” Head Coach Tim Foster said. The Bobcats were able to stay with in five points of the Mavericks the first quarter, but a few errors in the second quarter started to pile up and affected Nestucca’s mind-set. “One of the things we’ve been working on is not watching the scoreboard,” Foster said. “We’ll be playing well and hanging with a team and then we’ll make a couple turnovers and they’ll score a couple times. Then, we’ll see that we’re down and our energy changes a little bit. We’re still playing hard, but we’re not all there.” The Bobcats returned after halftime with a little more gusto and kept within five points of the Mavericks for the third quarter score, 8-13. But, Riverdale closed the game by shutting out the Bob-

cats in the fourth quarter and earning eight additional points for themselves. Sunny McCall led the Bobcats with seven points. Riverdale’s Mackenzie Brooks had 23 points for the Mavericks. “We’re getting there and making strides. We’ve played a couple tough teams lately and that’s been more difficult,” Foster said. The Bobcats have also been missing senior starter Marissa Dempsey from the court this past week. After spraining her wrist, she’s taking some time off to let it heal. “It could be a couple weeks before we see her back on the court and that’s tough; she’s a senior with a lot of experience,” Foster said. Filling in for her in the post position is freshman Morgan Kirkpatrick who earned her first basket of the season in the game against Riverdale. “She’s getting in there and playing hard,” Foster said of Kirkpatrick’s willingness to step up and fill the position. The Bobcats then traveled to Delphian to face the Dragons on Friday night. In a hard fought and close scoring game, the girls were defeated 35-39. “We started well, winning

the first quarter and continued to be aggressive putting up shots the entire game,” Foster said. But by the third quarter, Delphian had taken an eight point lead by forcing some Bobcat turnovers. “We found some energy in the fourth and kept attacking and got some shots to fall. We tied the game at 31 with 2:30 left. The game then came down to free throws and the Dragons sealed the win. “I was really proud of the way the girls played,” Foster said. “It was a tough, physical game and they could have easily wilted when they got behind in the second half, but they fought through and had a great chance to win. If we can bottle the intensity and confidence we played with Friday and bring it every day from here on out we’ll do some good things.” Kycia Richwine was the leading scorer for the Bobcats with 16 points and eight rebounds. Jackie Wilkinson lead the team with her second straight game with 14 rebounds. Nestucca is ranked right behind Delphian in the 2A-1 Northwest League, with a 0-7 league record.

Lack of depth costs Bobcats 1/14 Nestucca:31 Riverdale: 50 1/17 Nestucca: 39 Delphian: 52 by Chelsea Yarnell After a losing a few varsity players from the team, Head Coach Jim Kiser had to rely on his solid starting five to score points in their matchup against Riverdale on Jan. 14.. Nestucca came out and edged themselves into a small margin lead at the end of the first quarter, 8-7. But just like

the Bobcats girls’ team who played before them, they lost control in the second quarter when the Mavericks outscored them, 12-5. Riverdale continued to consistently score in the double digits into the second half, and dispersed their points between eight of their players. The Bobcats’ struggle was their depth as only the starting five put points on the board. Without solid performances from the second Bobcat lineup, Nestucca lost 31-50. Max Kirkendall and Brett Elder both led the Bobcats with 12 points apiece. The Bobcats also came up short in the game against Del-

phian on Friday night when the Bobcats lost 39-52. The Bobcats remain at the bottom of the 2A-Northwest League with a 1-6 record.

After ”The WAVE” demonstration project ended and the management was transferred to the newly formed District, the operations were relocated from the North Coast Senior Services in Wheeler to Tillamook across from the old Safeway on Hwy 101. The District moved again in 1999 to a location along Main Avenue between 8th and 9th Streets. In 2000, the District began a search for a permanent office and operations center. After spending months reviewing a dozen potential facility site locations, the District narrowed its choice to purchase and renovate the “State Office Building” at 3600 3rd Street. After making the decision to purchase this property, the District was awarded a grant to prepare a plan called the “TCTD Bus Storage, Maintenance and Office Facility Plan”. After completion of the Plan, the District was able to develop a financial plan to purchase the property. TCTD moved into the new office on May 1, 2002. Over the next year, bus barns were erected, a Park & Ride was completed and the administrative and operations facility renovation was completed. In 2006, Tillamook County Transportation District was awarded an ODOT grant to design and build the Transit Visitor’s Center at 2nd & Laurel Streets. The downtown Transit Visitor’s Center was completed in 2008. Since the Transit Visitor’s Center is a stopping place for visitors coming to and through Tillamook County by bus and car, a Ride Ambassador program was launched in March 2013 and The WAVE began providing passenger and tourist assistance and information. In 2009, the District was awarded an American Recovery Act grant to design and build a Bus Maintenance Facility and Bus Wash Facility at the 3rd Street location. This project was completed in 2010. The District started with two buses donated by the North Coast Senior Services and took delivery of a third bus in November 1997. In the early days of “The WAVE” demonstration project phase of service, the buses served as both deviated route and dial-a-ride buses. In December 1999, the District was able to dedicate a van solely to the Dial-A-Ride program we know today.

Today TCTD has a fleet of 17 buses and vans. The District has ten buses used to provide intercity service to Portland as well as local routes serving the greater Tillamook County. The District’s remaining seven vans are used to provide local dial-a-ride services throughout the County as well as providing non-emergency medical transportation services throughout the County and to Portland.

Bus Six, pictured left

Following the passage of the property tax levy, the District was able to expand services to Lincoln City, add additional service to North County, the Tillamook Town Loop, and an additional day of service to Portland (three days total). Another notable change occurred in 2007 when the District extended service from Manzanita to Cannon Beach. The WAVE’s original service to Portland went through Forest Grove, Cornelius, Hillsboro, Beaverton Transit Center and Union Station. In addition, riders were allowed to make advanced reservations to be dropped off and picked up at several hospitals in the Portland area. In 2003, the Portland route expanded to seven days a week and moved onto Hwy 26 with stops at 185th, Sunset Transit Center, Union Station and Greyhound Station. In late 2009, The WAVE added Banks and North Plains to its Portland route. In September 2011, “The Wave” began operating the same service on all routes seven days-a-week, which included an additional trip to Portland on Sundays.

Join us next week as we conclude our four part series: The WAVE, Rolling Into the Future…

Tillamook Jr. High gets recycling award By Joe Wrabek During “America Recycles Week,” Tillamook Junior High students collected over 1,000 pounds of tin cans, and on Jan.

15, Tillamook County Solid Waste presented them an award for their efforts – a metal sculpture hand-crafted in Haiti from parts of an old oil drum. The award was presented to students in Jill Ingram’s class, who have been in

charge of recycling at the school yearround. “We made a special push [for the tin cans] during America Recycles Week, but we recycle everything year-round,” Ingram said.

Science on Tap: The Mystery of the Beeswax Wreck of Nehalem Since the earliest days of EuroAmerican settlement on the Oregon Coast, stories have been told of a mystery shipwreck. The wreck was first described in writing by the fur trader Alexander Henry of Astoria in 1813. He described how the Clatsop Indians, who had brought wax to Astoria to trade, told Henry that the source of the wax was a large ship that had wrecked many years before at Nehalem. To add to the mys-

tery, the beeswax was found in large blocks with “strange symbols” carved into them, and as candles with wicks. Join the Columbia River Maritime Museum for our next Science on Tap: The Mystery of the Beeswax Wreck of Nehalem, Oregon on Thursday, February 6, 2014. Scott Williams, a professional archaeologist will present the latest findings from investigating the origin and identity of the Bees-

wax Wreck including where the wreck came from and where it was going. Scott Williams manages the Archaeology and History Program with the Washington State Department of Transportation and has over thirty years of archaeological experience working throughout the Pacific Northwest and the Pacific Basin. Science on Tap, in partnership with Fort George Brewery,

is a Columbia River Maritime Museum program introducing maritime science, history, and technology in an informal setting. This program is free and open to the public, minors are allowed with adult. Doors open at 6:00 pm, the presentation begins at 7:00 pm at Fort George Brewery - Lovell Building. Food and beverages are available for purchase. Seating is limited.

She had hip surgery and Jay did see her once when Jerry and Sonya took him out to Forest Grove to the care center where she is now in therapy. She will be there another two weeks and hopefully get back to Tillamook and into therapy at Five Rivers. Wishing Marcene the best of care so she can get back to walking again.

Sunday” the next day, Jan. 26, also noon to 2. Also on Saturday, Jan. 25, is the Meals for Seniors big fundraising dinner, 3 to 7 p.m. at St. Mary’s by the Sea in Rockaway. It’s a roast beef dinner, folks. Tickets are $8 at the door – or you can buy them ahead of time for $7 at mealtimes (that’s on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 11:30 a.m.).

Basic Microsoft Word and Excel, basic Internet and email, and – important – training on the new, popular e-readers. Contact Norma at the library to sign up: 503-3222100. Remember, these classes fill up real fast. Best to do it early. And the latest thing you can check out at the library is… SEEDS. You can check out 10 packs of seeds from the “seed lending library” per visit. You

don’t return them; what you do is plant them, and then collect some seeds from your plants at the end of the growing season and bring those to the library to share with others next year. And Norma says the Federal and state tax forms should be available at the library in late January or early February.

at her house Jan. 8. She had left her Christmas decorations up and the Christmas tree was just gorgeous with all the tiny seashells and beads that Betty had made for the tree. The tree had a mermaid on the top and lots of shiny lights. There were many other decorations around through the house and Betty had made and arranged them beautifully. It is so much fun to go to Betty and Richard’s house any time of the year, but Christmas is just wonderful to see. We played a game of 40 pictures that were towns in Oregon and we had to write the answers below the pictures. I answered about half of them but I know the answers were not all the right ones. I need to get the right answers in case I have the opportunity to play the game with another group of people. Everyone brought food to share and we had a gift exchange. I came home with a huge white Christmas platter with red Santas and other

Christmas decorations on it. Very nice gift. I haven’t found a place to put it yet as it is really a large size. Nearly everyone was happy to choose a gift under the tree and keep it. The next Nea-Rock Garden Club meets for lunch at Ko Ko’s downstairs restaurant at the Alderbrook Golf Course. Be there at 11:30 a.m. on Feb. 19 Carpool from PUD parking lot at 11:15 a.m. Weather permitting, we will hike along Kilchis Point. For the March meeting, meet at Sue and Steffen Aalykke’s house at 12 p.m. for a potluck. Their daffodils should be in bloom by then and we can walk through the garden paths to see them and any other flowers and shrubs in bloom. I was surprised to wake up the other morning to find all my electric clocks had stopped around 12:30 p.m. We had a real wind storm going and it isn’t unusual for our power to go off. I had six clocks to reset. I’m glad to have a couple battery clocks to depend on.

ebo Women’s Book Club met in December at the Sand Lake home of Pat Sears to discuss “A Tale for the Time Being” by Ruth Ozeki. Besides me and our hostess, attendees included: Mary Faith Bell, Marilyn Burkhardt, Ginger HarlowAllen, Sharon Kesey, Ginny Rasmussen, Patty Shurts, and Nancy Whitehead. Pat served her famous Yule Log dessert, along with a tablefull of other delights. The story begins with the discovery by a middle aged woman of a diary packaged within a Hello Kitty lunchbox on the beach near her Vancouver Island home. It’s told in two voices, that of the teenaged Japanese diary author, and the discoverer’s own. A widely read novel, more than 1,800 reviews are posted on one website alone. Our group’s reviews were decidedly split. Ginny Ras-

Page B3 mussen declared this her favorite book of all time, while Mary Faith and I both had reservations. January being a month when many of us recommit to healthy food choices, I’ll mention a couple of local options that you may not know about. The Bennett Family Farm in Tillamook is compiling a wait list for home milk delivery. They’ll offer pasteurized whole milk in half gallon bottles. Delivery to our doors will happen in the wee morning hours and South Tillamook County in on the route. Call 503-8151974 for more information or to add your household to the waiting list. Starla Hines makes a weekly run, most weeks, to fetch a produce order from the cooperative she works with out of Salem or Grand Rhonde. When I last ordered a box, the delivery included: a head of lettuce, a pineapple, a bunch of broccoli, two grapefruit, two head of cauliflower, three mangoes, four big apples, four bell peppers, five bananas, five tomatoes, seven carrots in three colors, and nine chili peppers. The cost is a $15 contribution, plus $5.50 for handling. For more information, e-mail Nestucca Junior /Senior

Getting through January


uring January it is often easy to get complacent about the garden. The weather isn’t generally nice enough to be out (although this January has been an exception) and it’s too early to deal with most plants anyway. The last thing we want to now do is prune and stimulate new growth. I generally find myself walking to the car with my head down to avoid looking at all the brown and bare spots in the garden. But one day last week as I was doing just that, I was stopped dead in my tracks with a heavenly scent. It only took a glance to my left to see what I had forgotten was there: a sarcococca, also known as sweet box. This got me thinking about other fragrant winter blooming shrubs and it wasn’t long before I had a nice list. Of course, the first I thought of was the sarcococca, mainly because it was right there in front of me. This is one of the few evergreen winter bloomers for the Pacific Northwest that does best in shade. And it is best placed along a path where that great scent will stop you in your tracks, too. S. ruscifolia is only about three feet high and wide. The fragrance comes from tiny white flowers that hang from the branches under dark, shiny green leaves. The flowers open each January and in a good winter will bloom until late February or early March. They like well-drained, compost-rich soil, and will do well in containers if they are regularly watered and fed. I would feed potted ones shortly after they are done blooming. If I was smart, I would get a couple more of these great plants and put them together for an even more sensory experience. The next plant is on my “To Buy in 2014” list and that is the Viburnum bodnantense ‘Dawn.’ I had never heard of this particular viburnum until it was decorated at the Pioneer Museum to be auctioned at the Festival of Trees. This

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.

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.

he Chili Bowl Cookoff is this Saturday the 25th! Stop by Neahkanie High School from 12-4 p.m. and help judge your favorite chili and cornbread. Local fire departments will be battling for the People’s Choice Trophy. Come by with two cans of food per person and $5 and you will be a part of a wonderful fundraiser benefiting the Oregon Food Bank Tillamook County Services. Not only will you get yummy chili from each department, you will also have live entertainment and craft vendors to enjoy! The fire department wants to thank you for the little stuffed animals that you so generously contributed to them several months ago. Santa used what he needed at the “Cookies with Santa” event last month, and they still have enough to last for a while to hand out to kids who find themselves in an emergency situation. Once again, not meaning to repeat myself, what an awesome town we live in. Folks always go out of the way to help each other when someone needs it. Thank you. We have a few birthdays I would like to mention. One of our part timers, Stan Bowyer, and one of my girlfriends, Marni Sheets Johnson will be celebrating their big days this month. Happy Birthday to both of you!

Dale and I had a wonderful breakfast at the Whale Spout the other day. Dale, who is hard to satisfy on his chicken fried steak, said it was perfect, and my sunrise burrito was to die for. Keep an eye open for their “breakfast is served” sign. I promise a wonderful meal. Jessie Carter, the sweet hostess, mentioned that she and her husband are celebrating their 10th anniversary. They have Tate, the boy who was Josh’s video pick on Good Morning America. Our town celebrity! Along with the Chili Cookoff is another worthwhile fundraiser coming up January 25. The Meals for Seniors are having their roast beef dinner from 3-7 at 275 S Pacific, St Mary’s by the Sea Hall. This dinner also includes mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, and dessert. $7 early and $8 at the door. There are two great reasons not to cook that night. Meals for Seniors could use some helping hands to deliver meals to the home bound in Rockaway and Garibaldi. They will pay mileage. Call Bob 503-812-2073 or Dixie 503-355-2892 for more info. This is a wonderful group of folks and a worthwhile cause. “Love the feel of a good book in your hands.”I received an email from the acting President for Friends of Rockaway Library Board, Anne McBride. They will be having a book sale at a private home at 904 2nd Ave. (off Juniper) on Jan. 25 or Sunday the 26th from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. There will be hardcover and paperbacks at bargain prices. All sales will go to the support of our own Rockaway Library. “Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves!” That’s Rockaway Beach “Sugar Coated!”


The opinion piece that changed the world


ne time there was a guy who taught school a little, observed birds while picking huckleberries, had a few friends who paid his bills. He had a girlfriend once. It didn’t work out. One woman proposed to him later in life. He turned her down. Since he refused to pay his taxes, you could call him a deadbeat. He died of a cold at forty-four. Not the sort of guy you would want your son to grow into. Oh, yeah, he wrote a little. He wrote an essay once, you know, where you give your opinion about this or that. Short of scripture, his essay has affected more people than any other piece of writing on the Earth. It inspired resistance to the McCarthy House Un-American Activities Committee hearings, opposition to the Vietnam War and every antiwar movement since. It convinced Gandhi to take India away from the British Empire, the most powerful on earth. It inspired Nelson Mandela to fight apartheid in South Africa. His opinion piece can claim much credit for the Arab Spring, the slow increase of personal

SCHUBERT MOORE 503-965-3681

freedom in China, and the nascent blooms of democracy around the globe. And it influenced Martin Luther King Jr, to initiate the civil rights movement. That piece of writing doesn’t ask you to take up arms. It asks you to disobey bad law. And it asks you to be civil about it. No gunfire, please. What’s ironic is it’s a terrible essay. It’s longish at 9500 words. It’s contradictory, example, “It is truly enough said that a corporation has no conscience; but a corporation of conscientious men is a corporation with a conscience.” Sometimes turgid, “Only his vote can hasten the abolition of slavery who asserts his own freedom by his vote.”















Nestucca High School class of 2013: an elite group


he worst storm of the season turned out to be not so bad where I am. Highest winds were only about 15. Some of you had much higher gusts and I hope no one sustained any damage and you were all safely inside a warm place. Boosters meet Jan. 31 at City Hall with a potluck at 11:30 followed by a short meeting. Come and meet some wonderful people in your community. FRESH (formally Art Space) has officially opened their door to selling fresh organic vegetables and fruit. I went in and bought some veggies and I must say they were exceptionally fresh. They will be open for shopping and lunch from 9-2 Sunday through Thursday. Wednesday night they will be serving dinner from 5-7. You may view the Wednesday night dinner fare on Facebook by going to Fresh LLC. Kevin from the Port of Garibaldi asked me to share this with you: Port of Garibaldi Monthly Regular Meeting, Wednesday, Feb. 1h at 7 p.m., Bay City Hall. This is a chance for Bay City residents to hear what’s going on with the Commercial Avenue wharf, moorage and launch rates, vision plan and the jetty system.

Thirty eight newly graduated Nestucca students took the stage June 7, taking their first steps towards the rest of their lives. “You are the one and only graduating class of 2013 from Nestucca High School,” said guest speaker Misty Wharton. “You share that with 38 people; that’s a pretty elite group. “This community is unique,” she contnued. “When giving directions, we often refer to how many bridges you have to go over, whose house it is next to or whose property it used to be. We can take any corner at 55 miles per hour but brake for tractors, deer and elk sometimes. You are a product of this unique community be proud of it. Never let anyone make you feel like you are a second class citizen because the town you were educated in was small.” Wharton told the graduates when she thinks of the class of 2013, “I think of how they have such strong emotions about things; they’re very vocal about what they like and do not like. “ Wharton went on to say that while some of them might be itching to move away and others might be wanting to stay put, there is no ideal place to live. “I love it here, but I can say that because I chose to leave and come back,” she said. “When I was your age, I also wanted to leave my community and it was the second smartest thing I ever did because it affirmed that I wanted to move back… Explore your world and if moving back is the right fit for you, you’ll know it. But be a contributing member of your community wherever you chose to call home.” Wharton reminded the young adults that while being a Nestucca graduate put them in a unique class of their own, they are still only one of billions of people on the planet. “Cherish your friends and family,” she said. “Because they will always be there for you and out of all the billions of people on this planet, those are your people - so treat them like they are one in a billion.” Salutatorian Maria Perez told those present that high school was full of life-changing situations. “We’ve come so far and accomplished so much in four short years,” she said. “I hope we can all look back on those times and remember the happy and the sad times we’ve had

together. I hope wherever we go in this world, we always remember each other… Together we will always be the class of 2013.” Valedictorian Patrice Lussier thanked the many parents, teachers, coaches and family members who helped her and her class make it this far. “They gave us the tools we needed to succeed,” she said. “They held our hand in the beginning, and then pushed us forward, and now we are here showing them their time wasn’t completely wasted.” The Headlight Herald has a full video of the Nestucca 2013 graduation available for purchase.

Eighty art lovers browsed original art and sipped wine while enjoying live music at Tom Goodwin Gallery and Studio last Sunday afternoon. The June 2 event celebrated the transformation of the former Closet Door Boutique in Cloverdale into a sleek, light-filled, airy space graced by polished wood floors, fresh paint and a new skylight. It’s the perfect setting to shop for original art. Owner, Tom Goodwin spoke with the Headlight Herald. “I’ve been in love with Tillamook County since vacations as a kid,” he said. “I’ve fished here a lot, and five years ago I moved nearby, five miles south of here…near Oretown.” Local artists participating in the opening exhibit include Julius Jortner,


acrylic paint on 100% cotton canvas. They contain symbols, suggestions of moving figures (humans and animals,) and the overall mood ranges from light and humorous to richly sensual. “I’ve been trying to paint my way out of real estate for forty years!” he quipped. Besides “hanging out with a lot of arty people,” Goodwin describes his art education as including coursework at The Museum Art School in Portland, and The University of Oregon. The new gallery is located at the intersection of U.S. Highway 101 and Bridge Street, next door to Cloverdale Pharmacy, in downtown Cloverdale.

Tillamook County Fair manager Miranda Muir has resigned. Muir had been on the job only eight months. Hired by the Fair Board in August 2012, she took over Miranda Muir as fair manager October 1. Muir had worked and volunteered for the Sangamon County Fair in New Berlin, Ill. for 17 years, but this was her first fair manager job. “She said she resigned because she and her husband didn’t think Tillamook was a good fit,” Fair Board president Rita Hogan told the Headlight Herald. “And she had another job opportunity come up. It was her decision,” Hogan emphasized. “We were hoping she’d be able to experience a Tillamook County Fair.” With Muir already gone, “We still have a fair to put on,” Hogan said. “We’ll put it on. Everybody’s stepping up,” she said, “taking on more responsibilities.” The Fair Board, which hires the fair manager, won’t begin the process of finding a replacement for Muir until after this year’s county fair is over. “We don’t have time to focus on it now,” Hogan said. The Fair Board may hire someone part time to assist Kristin Killgore at the Fair office. Calls, questions and decisions that would normally have gone to Muir should be directed to the Fair office (503/842-2272), Hogan said, or to one of the Fair Board members.

ing an update on OCSR’s success this last year. “We want something we can share with our visitors to Tillamook County because it’s a very important part of our history; there are only 23 depots in existence in the state and we want to preserve this one for future generations.” Thompson said preserving the depot is essential to any other growth for the OCSR and will be the hub of activity for those hitching a ride on one of their routes. In 2011-12, Thompson said they had a little over 13,000 riders. This last year has brought in 18,800, he said.

Tillamook Center Market grocer Hamraj Singh, 46, was sentenced on June 7 after pleading guilty to six Class A Misdemeanor counts of harassment Hamraj Singh against two of his female employees. Judge Jonathan R. Hill, after referring to the case as a “complicated situation,” sentenced Singh to a two year bench probation with special conditions including a $100 fine for each count; a $40,000 compensatory fine for the first victim; a $10,000 compensatory fine for the second victim; no direct or indirect contact with the victims and he is required to keep the court advised at all times of his address and telephone number.

Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad moves forward with Tillamook Depot project

Tillamook County Churches By Sayde MoSer

If all goes according to plan, the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad will be pouring the foundation for its “new” office - the old Tillamook Depot - by October. According to Office Administrator Tim Thompson, they had wanted to start work back in 2011 but due to the permit process and meeting Tillamook County building codes, it was pushed back. The building, which will serve as an office as well as a living museum, will be a free-standing structure on the Blue Heron property. It will house small artifacts and other items pertaining

to the heritage of the Tillamook County railroad. “We need somewhere we can display our artifacts as well as a base of opera-

tions, so we’re not working out of each others’ homes anymore,” Thompson told the Tillamook City Council last week dur-

the State comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power.” And finally this, “Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also a prison.” This essay will give you moral weight if you refuse to pay the new Tillamook Tourism and Lodging Tax and Sheriff Andy Long invites you stay in the Tillamook County Jail. You’ll be in good company. I understand the girl band Pussy Riot was recently released from their Russian prison for their civil disobedience. Of course, Mandela spent twenty-seven years in jail and King and Gandhi paid with their lives. No one said civil disobedience doesn’t come without a cost. The gay, vegetarian birder who wrote the essay was Henry David Thoreau. It’s called “Civil Disobedience.” Monday we celebrated one of its results. We here at the Notes-FromThe-Coast R&D Department do the heavy lifting so you don’t have to. You should know about this essay. An American wrote it and it changed the world. It still is.

Cynical, “Merchants and farmers here, who are more interested in commerce and agriculture than they are in humanity.” Whiny, “There is but little virtue in the action of masses of men.” Sometimes it wanders, occasionally dropping in to tell a story totally beside the point about a pleasant night spent in jail. Sometimes it sounds like boilerplate for the Tea Party, “That government is best which governs least. That government is best which governs not at all.” But then there is the heart of the essay, the heart Gandhi, Mandela and King, and others found and made their heart: “If it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law.” And “All men recognize the right of revolution; that is, the right to refuse allegiance to, and to resist, the government.” And, “Let your life be a counter friction to stop the machine.” “Any man more right than his neighbors constitutes a majority of one.” “There will never be a really free and enlightened State until

Barley: No Ordinary Jack Russell

Fernando: A Little Lover Boy

Sweet Barley is a 7-year old part Jack Russell, part rat terrier, with the best of both breeds. He is very laid-back, not at all hyper, and loves sharing quiet time on his person’s lap.  He is excellent with children, adores being with other dogs, and happily travels in the car.  Due to an allergic condition, he cannot go to a home with cats.

Six-month old Fernando is without doubt one of the most affectionate, loving kittens around. This bullseye tabby adores people and other cats, doesn’t mind dogs or kids, and seeks a home brimming full of love and playtime for him to shine.  

Adopt anytime! Contact United Paws at 503-842-5663, email, website and visit us at Facebook/United Paws and Twitter/United Paws.
