Oct. 12 is the 50-year anniversary of the Columbus Day Storm, the second deadliest weather event in the state’s recorded history. It was considered the worst natural disaster in the entire country in 1962, resulting in 46 deaths, many destroyed homes, and widespread power outages that lasted for weeks in some areas. Timber blow-downs added up to the combined annual timber harvests in both Oregon and Washington, an estimated 11-15 billion board feet. Damages were an estimated $200 million in Oregon, the equivalent

Dome tiles were thrown down the mountainside; the 200pound chunks tore through entire trees. The only weather-related event in recorded Oregon history that was worse was the Heppner Flood of 1903, which resulted in 247 deaths. The storm was actually a convergence of three storms combined to create the monster storm that blasted the state with hurricane force winds.

TAPA premieres new show in remodeled playhouse

illamook firefighters responded to a structure fire just before 9 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 7, that severely damaged a home on east Third Street. Fire Marshal Rueben Descloux said a smoldering cigarette in an ash tray on the front porch may have started the fire. One woman was inside the house at the time the fire began; she and the family’s three dogs all escaped the home without injury. Property tax records show the home is owned by James Udenby. Four fire trucks and roughly 20 firefighters responded, quickly knocking out the blaze. Descloux said strong east winds likely kept a cigarette butt burning. By the time firefighters arrived, the fire had spread to the house and had reached the attic by way of the front porch. The entire front portion of the home was charred and burned. Firefighters cut a hole in the roof to gain entry to the attic and make sure the fire was extinguished. A few weeks ago, Descloux said the department responded to a similar fire on Skyline Drive – begun by a cigarette butt that was kept alive by strong winds. In that case, the homeowner kept the fire from spreading beyond the porch with a garden hose. The area remains under a Level 2 fire danger.



It is an exciting time and a big opening weekend for the Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts; TAPA is set to premiere the new play, ‘What a Fine Monster You Are!’ and raise the curtain on the newly remodeled Barn Community Playhouse, with...drum roll please...comfortable theater seats! The remodeling project, much of it accomplished with volunteer labor, began in July. Patrons of TAPA who have for years endured derriere-numbing seats will be thrilled to relax in the comfort of repurposed cushioned and upholstered church seats donated by Lisa Kendall, set on risers and staggered so that every seat in the house is a good seat.

County officials look into percentage of lodging tax revenues as potential road repair funding source BY LEEANN NEAL

For the Headlight Herald

The committee charged with finding funding to repair Tillamook County’s derelict roads is looking at a possible countywide lodging tax among other revenue sources. “By law, 70 percent of TRT (transient room tax) revenue must be used for tourism promotion and advertising,” said Jon Carnahan, retired former president of Tillamook Bay Community College, who, along with Tillamook County Commissioner Mark Labhart co-chairs the Tillamook County Sustainable Roads Committee. “That leaves 30 percent available for fixing our roads. “Some people like the TRT idea because it is a tax that the locals don't pay and most areas of the state have a TRT already in place so people are used to paying it when they stay in a motel,” continued Carnahan. “We do not have a TRT in place outside of the cities in Tillamook County.” According to Labhart, the Economic Development Council of Tillamook County Board of Directors recently directed Dan Biggs, executive director, to work with local “cities, motels, the travel industry and the public in

developing a TRT proposal for the ballot next year.” County commissioners, who would have to approve any ballot measure before it is referred to voters, would expect such a proposal to be acceptable to those in the local lodging and travel industries, as well as local cities and the public, he added. A TRT is just one possible solution to the significant problem of repairing county roads. The committee, said Carnahan, is “developing a list of possible options to present to the public in three public listening sessions sponsored by the Headlight Herald. One of the options the committee is looking at includes a transient room tax.” At the moment, Tillamook County has no funding with which to repair its 380 miles of roads, which, in a statewide assessment conducted nearly five years ago, were rated the worst roads in Oregon by far. “Clearly Tillamook County roads have not got any better in the last five years,” said Carnahan. Tillamook County’s roads are funded primarily by state and federal money, including revenue from gas taxes and motor vehicle registration fees. However, county roads’

largest source of federal funds – federal forest timber receipts – are ending. Many mistakenly believe property taxes pay for local road maintenance, said Director of the Tillamook County Roads Department Liane Welch. “By law, county commissioners are not allowed to simply shift property tax funds from other areas to pay for roads,” she said. Tillamook County’s neighboring counties’ constituents all, at one time or another approved supplemental road taxes to maintain their transportation systems. Since 2001, as timber payments have dwindled, Tillamook County’s roads have deteriorated faster than county roads staff can repair them, said Welch. A shrinking department budget has forced her to take a reactionary approach – fixing potholes rather than paving. So far, every potential method of funding county road repair has been thwarted, most recently in November of 2011 with 53 percent of local voters rejecting a proposal for the county to sell general obligation bonds not to exceed $15 million. The bonds, which would have matured in 10 years and would have been paid from property taxes,

230 Rowe St., Wheeler (503) 368-5182 (800) 368-5182



would have cost roughly $.46 per $1,000 in assessed value. Sixty-five percent of county voters defeated a measure in May of 2008 that would have funded the Tillamook County Road Service District by imposing a $1 per $1,000 assessed value as a permanent rate limit for roads. Nearly 10 years earlier, in November of 1999, 64 percent of county voters rejected a proposed levy imposing a property tax dedicated to paving roads. The levy was for 85 cents per $1,000 of assessed value and included cities, with proceeds to have been shared with cities. Three years prior to that, 66 percent of county voters defeated a measure that would have adopted an ordinance imposing 4 cents per gallon tax on gasoline sold in Tillamook County with proceeds to fund paving of county and city roads. The tax would have expired in five years. Refunds would have been given for some involved in certain farm and forestry work. Labhart said a study conducted last year indicated about $500,000 would be available for road repair from

a 10 percent countywide transient room tax. “Liane Welch estimates we have a $40 million road problem, so the TRT will not fix our deteriorating roads but it is a start and it is a tax that the tourists pay." While some people have said they like the concept of a countywide TRT, not everyone has had a chance to weigh in, said Carnahan. “We are not sure what voters might think about a TRT because we have not asked them yet. We will be asking them for their ideas on this and any others ideas they might have later this year in the public meetings. We want to listen to what they think about the various options out there and ask for their input and ideas on these and any others they might offer.” The committee, which formed in 2010 at Labhart’s request, will serve as a facilitator for the next attempt to secure funding for county road repair, said Carnahan. It will attempt to engage the public in the process, take its feedback to commissioners and develop recommendations for the commissioners’ consideration, he said. “The Board of County Commissioners is final author-

ity to decide what should go on the ballot, if anything.” Members of the committee, chosen by Labhart and Carnahan, represent all regions of the county. They are Labhart and Carnahan as well as south county businessmen Doug Olson and Bill Goodman; central county businessmen Don Averill and Doug Rosenberg; and north county residents, Manzanita Mayor Garry Bullard and Nehalem Mayor Shirley Kalkhoven. Welch serves as staff liaison to the group. “So, we have a good mix from throughout the county of government and private folks, and we have people serving who are leaders in their communities,” said Carnahan. The committee plans to host three public meetings throughout the county to solicit voter input on ideas – those offered by the committee and any they have themselves - for funding local road repair. “Tillamook County roads belong to the citizens of the county,” said Carnahan. “We all drive on them at some time. Our citizens need and should have a say in how they should be funded.”

ELECT NCRD unveils pool project options ANDY LONG SHERIFF


RENOVATE By Sherwood’s preliminary analysis, upgrading the existing four-lane pool, located beneath the NCRD building, would cost roughly $2.4 million. That cost includes $167,550 to replace the heating and ventilation system, $150,000 in dressing room improvements, $127,120 in natatorium (pool facility) improvements, and $539,634 in “soft costs” – permits, testing, fixtures, furnishes, equipment and contingency funds. The project would improve pool systems with a new mechanical room, gutter system, circulation pump, filter system and more. The natatorium itself would receive new paint, new structural improvements, and dry rot repair. This is the lowest-cost option and, Sherwood said, the option with the lowest future maintenance costs. However, it would not address the narrow pool deck space; an expansion for a mechanical room and lobby would block the eastern view of rooms upstairs; and, perhaps most problematic, it would force the closure of the pool for nine months to a year.

renovation or new construction options, but the $41,300 blanket cost is not included in the project estimates. Sherwood also presented a preliminary cost estimate for a new dehumidification system in the current pool, including a new mechanical room, air handling unit, overhead ductwork, fan unit and air grilles. The total project estimate is $485,868, but Sherwood concluded that “due to the lack of code compliant heating and ventilation systems, this study is not feasible as an energy conservation measure... Operating cost comparisons will likely not reveal a reasonable payback period... The benefits will be improved air quality and temperature and humidity control... The drawback may be increased operating costs.”

REBUILD Another option is to build a new pool facility, with the same pool capacity, on adjacent property owned by NCRD. Sherwood’s $3.9 million, 9,000-square-foot proposal would increase the pool deck area, separate the learning pool from the lap pool, and include more space for locker rooms, administrative offices, and storage space. Costs include $907,500 for the steel frame natatorium structure, $594,000 for the bathhouse and pool mechanics, $519,200 for the pool itself, and $908,916 in “soft costs.” Sherwood noted that this option would allow the current pool to remain open during construction. But costs are higher, and they don’t take into account costs to either mothball or repurpose the existing pool.

EXPAND A third option studied is to build a new, larger pool facility. For an estimated $5.2 million, NCRD could expand to a six-lane lap pool. The design is essentially the same as with the four-lane rebuild, but slightly larger. This pool would cost roughly $759,000; the 12,000-square-foot steel natatorium structure roughly $1.15 million; and “soft costs” roughly $1.2 million. Sherwood said the six-lane pool could serve approximately 150 patrons; the current facility is quite crowded with 70 people, said NCRD Aquatics Director Barbara McCann. McCann also said after the meeting that the six-lane pool would allow the district to serve more swimmers without an increase in employees.

OTHER EVALUATIONS Sherwood also presented estimates on adding a pool cover, or blanket, to the existing pool for heat conserva-

tion. Two 15-foot wide blankets and mechanical reels to retract them would be needed. That cost is estimated at $41,300. Typical projected energy savings would be around $14,677 a year, with an investment return within 2.8 years. Unfortunately, the NCRD pool’s heating system isn’t “typical.” Sherwood explained that the existing natatorium doesn’t have any heating system itself – “the pool is the source of heat for the natatorium.” Blanketing the water would cool the rest of the space to be “less comfortable” for patrons and could potentially cause a serious condensation problem, he said. As for the $14,677 a year? Sherwood says, “I’m not sure you’ll get those savings because you don’t have the kind of air system that supports those kinds of savings.” It should be noted that those kinds of cost savings could be utilized in the

The Oct. 4 presentation was only of Sherwood’s preliminary findings. A full report was expected to be delivered to the board in a couple of weeks. Sherwood added that he would have figures on the estimated operating costs of the three proposals by the Oct. 11 board meeting. Several members of the audience asked questions of Sherwood and the board, including how any of the proposals could be funded. Audience member Owen Nicholson said, “This community cannot afford a $4 million to $6 million pool.” One man pointed out that in the first draft of the pool “enterprise plan,” the board stated it preferred the largest option – the six-lane pool. Asked if that was still the board’s position, Greenwood said, “I would say that’s changed.” Another asked Sherwood what he thought would be appropriate for a community of north county’s size – four or six lanes. Sherwood said, “I’m surprised you have a four-lane pool” adding that the entire pool program was “fairly unique for a community this size. It’s unusual, but it’s part of what this community is.” After Sherwood’s presentation, Greenwood asked the board about their initial thoughts. “I have no idea at this point,”

Marie Paid for by the Ziemeccommittee to ki said with elect Andy Long a laugh. “It’s going to be a question of what the community wants,” said John Coopersmith. The next phase in the pool study is to choose one option to study further. The NCRD Board plans to pick that option soon – either Oct. 11 or at a specially called meeting the following week. The public is invited to comment at the meeting or in email to Greenwood added that doing nothing is an option, too. If one option is chosen for further study, surveys will be presented to the community on how to fund it – likely in January and February. There’s already a large chunk of money saved for the pool project. In 2008, voters approved a five-year operational tax levy for NCRD, which expires in 2013. Greenwood said that levy has allowed the district to put about about $1 million toward a pool project, by funding operations with the levy and saving timber tax and base NCRD property taxes for the pool. One possibility is for the NCRD board to ask for a renewal of that levy next year – that could produce another $1 million over five years. Aquatics Director Barbara McCann said the NCRD doesn’t intend to seek an additional construction levy, and is looking at other means of fundraising for a potentially larger project. A copy of the consultant's report may be downloaded from NCRD’s website, and copies are available for review at the Manzanita Public Library and the NCRD office at 36155 9th Street, Nehalem. H14674

NEHALEM – The North County Recreation District Board received preliminary numbers on three options for its aging community pool – renovate for $2.4 million, rebuild for $3.9 million or expand for $5.2 million. The preliminary draft of the Nehalem Bay Pool Options Study was presented during a public meeting Oct. 4 by Carl Sherwood with Robertson Sherwood Architects of Eugene. The NCRD Board invites public comment on the proposals during their next regular meeting, at 7 p.m. Oct. 11 at NCRD. The board has placed an agenda item calling for a decision at that meeting on which of the three options to pursue further. However, NCRD Board Chair Kevin Greenwood said the board reserves the right to take time to absorb public input and call a special board meeting the following week to make a decision.

Sherwood noted that he believed NCRD could get a variance from state building codes for the narrow pool deck, though he would confirm that before moving forward with this plan.

City of Tillamook passes truck-route ordinance BY JOE WRABEK

The Tillamook City Council held their public hearing on — and had the first reading of — the city’s new truck-route ordinance on Oct. 1. It’s not exactly new, police chief Terry Wright told the council. The city has had a truck route ordinance since 1952. The problem is that a Federal law, the “Federal Aviation Administration Act of 1994, as amended,” prohibited cities from regulating “prices, routes or services of any motor carrier” except for public safety reasons. “In 2007, the state decided they have to approve our truck ordinance,” Wright said. The new ordinance the council was considering includes publicsafety reasons for limiting truck traffic to certain streets, citing length and weight of trucks, and the narrowness of some streets. “We can enforce it once ODOT gives their blessing,” Wright said. Thirteen of the 14 streets listed in the ordinance are already designated truck routes in the city’s Transportation Plan, city manager Paul Wyntergreen told the council. The Public Works Committee had recommended including Miller

Avenue as well; Miller is not in the Transportation Plan, Wyntergreen said. City planner David Mattison had earlier argued against including Miller Avenue, and Wyntergreen said both ODOT and the state Dept. of Land Conservation & Development (DLCD) “had misgivings” about including Miller without amending the Transportation Plan, a time-consuming process. Instead of including Miller Avenue on the list of truck routes, Wyntergreen and Chief Wright recommended adding a provision allowing trucks to use “restricted streets” to get back and forth to businesses not on truck routes so long as they used “the shortest route available.” This way, “we don’t landlock businesses not on a truck route,” Wyntergreen said. Pat Kerr (303 Miller) objected to the inclusion of Miller as a truck route, citing the danger to residences on that

street. “We were not notified of this until today,” she added. “I, too, did not receive notice,” Aaron Palter, who lives on Third Street, said. Third Street is already a truck route, Wyntergreen noted. Notice was published in the newspaper and online, he said. The city isn’t obligated to notify landowners individually because the truck route ordinance isn’t a land use action, he said. The city council’s first reading of the ordinance—removing Miller Avenue from the truck route list, and adding Wyntergreen’s and Wright’s “shortest route available” language — passed unanimously. A second reading — and adoption — is scheduled for the city council meeting Oct. 15.

The city council also had the first reading of an ordinance adopting Comprehensive Plan revisions.

Save Our Sirens P

lease help to get the County Commissioners to take another good look before dismantling our sirens. Saving our Sirens from destruction is important because it is our lives, the residents and visitors, at stake. In a Tsunami situation we have the right to simple, universal warning. They want to replace our sirens with airplane loudspeakers, reverse 911 calls, text messages and social media. However, our median age range for the county is over 40 and many of these are seniors who the commissioners expect to have cell phones, internet service and also counting on them being able to use these efficiently. Also, there are many places on our Coast where we are lacking in cell phone service; two coastal communities right on the beach have no cell phone service at all. In the case of vacationers and visitors, there is no way the County could even know their phone numbers or when they would be here for the reverse 911 to work. I would also like to add that we live in a very poor economical area and many of

the residents cannot afford the luxury of internet or cell phone service. This is just wrong in so many Ocie Johnson ways. SOS Tillamook What our County commissioners are planning for is the great big earthquake; a 9.0 to be exact and our warning would be the shaking. Now, in that case, they are correct, once the shaking is over, get out and head to high ground. But what they are not thinking about is a lower grade earthquake or even another tsunami generating scenario such as an under the ocean volcano or landslide. Please help us to help make them realize that a siren is universal tool in disaster warning and needs no explanation to residents or visitors; you hear a siren, you run. It is simple. Thank you for your help! We have started a Facebook page called SOS Tillamook County and the link is: OSTillamookCounty

READERS’ OPEN FORUM Fact checking Mitt Romney I checked a number of Mitt Romney statements in the first presidential debate on PolitiFact’s fact-checking web site: 1. Mitt Romney said that businesses did not get tax breaks for sending jobs overseas. Per PolitiFact, businesses closing U.S. operations do get tax breaks by deducting the closing costs as business expense and Republicans voted down White House-supported legislation to end those tax breaks. 2. Romney said that there were 5 studies that said his planned tax cuts and eliminations of deductions and loopholes would not increase the tax burden on the middle class or increase the deficit. Per PolitiFact, there have been no actual studies and taxes for middle class families would increase. 3. Romney said that Obamacare took away $716 billion away from current Medicare recipients. Per PolitiFact, that amount is reductions in Medicare spending over 10 years primarily paid to insurers and hospitals not recipients. 4. Romney said that Obamacare established a board that would dictate what treatments you could receive. Per PolitiFact, the board couldn’t make decisions for individuals but the board could reduce payments to hospitals with very high rates of re-admissions or recommend innovations that cut wasteful spending. 5. Romney said he is not going to cut education funding, but in the past he has said that he would, in fact, cut the education budget. 6. I don’t think Romney answered the question whether his Medicare plan was a voucher

program . Per PolitiFact, a voucher program is a fair way of describing the vision for Medicare under a RomneyRyan administration. Mary Flock Oceanside

What does America stand for? Why are we letting Israel call the shots and push U.S. military aggression “buttons” toward Iran? When will we begin to be our own country again? Following our own governance? We let China dictate the message that President Obama could not host the Dalai Llama at the White House. Now we’re letting Israel set the pace on non-diplomacy, and worse, with Iran. If we stood for American values, what would we have to lose? If we’re lucky, China might set sanctions against the U.S. and deprive us of their cheap imports. We might then have to reopen abandoned manufacturing plants across the country and create jobs here at home. And if we were luckier still, Israel and its money-powered AIPAC (American-Israel Public Affairs Committee) might pull the plug on Congressional ‘funding’ and Senate and House races may have to count on United States citizens for support and begin representing our needs instead. Let’s get back to our basic values and what America stands for: we welcome our visitors, especially those who come in peace; and we put everyone who wants a job back to work. We may have to make a few sacrifices; but isn’t that what we’ve always done, when

COUNTRY MEDIA The Headlight Herald is part of the Country Media family of newspapers.

Another bad experience in planning I do not know Rintha Renoud, even though I am also from Pacific City. I could have written her letter myself because my bad experience with Lisa Phipps was the same. In 2007 I also went to the planning department for information about adding a new family room to a 60-plus year old home in a long ago developed section of Pacific City. Ms. Phipps slammed down several papers, told me to fill them out and bring them back with about $500 for a land use study. I went back a week later and Ms. Phipps was called to the counter to assist me because she had not given me the proper information. There were five people behind me waiting while she rudely berated me for not having information she had not even given me or even explained what I really needed. She insisted I should have written an explanatory letter and answered questions that were not even questions in the regulations section, and no place asked for a letter. After another trip, it took about seven months for the land use study before I could even apply for a permit. I would not vote for Ms. Phipps if she were the only person running.

As a Tillamook County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) volunteer, I encourage you to vote YES on 29-129. The Tillamook County SWCD was the first District formed in Oregon. Since 1940, Tillamook’s natural resource concerns changed. There are many Federal, State, and local mandates, permits, and regulations that are present that changed the way the District provides technical assistance to county citizens. As new environmental laws were enacted, the SWCD’s ability to provide local solutions to these laws diminished. Laws include the Federal Clean Water Act, National Environmental Protection Act, and the Threatened and Endangered Species Act, Oregon’s Confined Feeding Operation (CAFO) rules and regulations, and the North Coast Basin’s Agricultural Water Quality Management Area Plan are examples of rules, regulation, and mandates that has limited Tillamook County SWCD’s ability to provide timely technical assistance.

The Tillamook County Soil and Water Conservation District is not a Tillamook County Department. The SWCD operates as a legal subdivision of State Government. Local citizens are elected to direct the SWCD’s operations and programs. SWCD operates like Port Districts and School Districts. In other words, Tillamook County SWCD is locally controlled and managed. Over the years, Tillamook County SWCD has sponsored numerous stream bank protection projects, restored over 170 miles of stream riparian zones. This included fencing, native tree and shrub plantings, livestock crossings, off stream livestock watering facilities, over 100 nutrient management plans developed, and over 150 livestock manure storage facilities constructed as a result of the nutrient management plans. Today, the Tillamook County SWCD faces a reduction in USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) technical assistance and federal programs dollars to install conservation measures that restore and improve our County’s renewable resources for future generations that follow. Join me in voting YES on 29-129 that would provide Tillamook County Soil and Water Conservation District the financial resources to continue their conservation work on private lands that stared in 1940 to restore, improve, and maintain, our county’s resource base.

United Way campaign begins this month Marie Mills Center has been a proud recipient of Tillamook County United Way (TCUW) support for nearly 35 years. As it has been with the other nonprofits in our community, TCUW support to Marie Mills Center has been instrumental in improving the quality of life of developmentally disabled adults in our programs and community. It has assisted in meeting their transportation needs, it has assisted in promoting social opportunities, it has assisted in the placement of individuals into independent living situations, and it has assisted in providing job training for our most vulnerable citizens leading to employment opportunities. Efforts like the annual TCUW drive, the annual THS Charity Drive, and the myriad of other efforts by caring nonprofits in our county represent what is best about our county our willingness to look after each other and to give a helping hand. Ours would be a much different community without efforts such as these. While having a history of being isolated, our county also has a history of helping its own for which we should all be proud of. October marks the beginning of this year’s Tillamook County United Way Drive. Marie Mills Center and the

many other beneficiaries of the United Way know how tough it has been for many in our community, including you. Your Support of the Tillamook County United Way Drive during times like these underscores the caring quality of Tillamook County Citizens, and is what makes ours a special community. Ron Rush, Executive Director, Marie Mills Center Inc.

‘Bill is the best choice’ I have read the flyers for those seeking the county commissioner’s office and I have met them. I have considered where the past politicians/ bureaucrats have taken us. I wondered if we have been led down a path that only sounds really good. One person has extensive experience with government functions, either as a bureaucrat, elected official or advisor. Ask me about the ease of processing a building permit when this person was a force in the county community development department. Where do you foresee the future wood products industry with an environmental lawyer advocating for the most productive forest in the state? Laws have been put in place already to reduce timber harvests and public access to the forests that we, the public, own. Our farmers are more attuned to the environment than any of those creating the laws. Lisa Phipps, from my observation, has been responsible for more roadblocks to the growth of Tillamook County than most can imagine. All of her accomplishments are government related, not business related. Do we want more government oversight with more laws and taxes to pay for them, or do you want a local government that is your voice? Bill Baertlein understands the financial condition of our government. He has the insight, experience and knowledge of what can make Tillamook County a great place again. He understands the needs of business to be successful and prosperous. He is receptive to suggestions outside the bureaucracy that would run the county as a business, there to help and advise the citizenry, not as an ever-growing tax dollar sinkhole. Bill Baertlein would take our concerns to the state and federal government and see the bull for what it is. He knows that the bureaucracy can be more efficient. Reductions in paperwork, elimination of overlapping rules/laws and meeting the needs of the people would be his guiding principles. He is more informed about our county government with his active participation than most “insiders.” Bill is the best choice for Tillamook County and the future. William Pollard Cloverdale

October is DV Awareness Month As the Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center celebrates 30 years of service and partnership in our community, we also recognize the serious impact that domestic violence has on our community. In Oregon alone, approximately 150 Oregonians were murdered as a result of domestic violence since January 2009; ten of these were children. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. While violence continues to impact our community, the response over 30 years has been nothing short of amazing. We have grown from a tiny group of volunteers to a fully staffed office, with a variety of services, including a crisis line, shelter, 24hour services, job training, and an education and outreach department. More and more people have attended trainings and events, volunteered, and donated money, time, and effort to speak out, increase resources, and be part of the solution. Our center currently responds to an average of 150200 calls a month, and serves over 1,000 families a year. We now have advocates stationed part-time at the Department of Human Services and the Tillamook County Health Department. Our services are always confidential and free. If you or someone you care about needs help, or if you would like to learn more about how you can help, please contact us at 503-8429486, or toll-free at 1-800-9921679. You may also visit our website at, or our Facebook page. We are offering free purple car antenna ribbons during the month of October and Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and are always available for public speaking or trainings for your workplace, church, or other community group. Thank you again, Tillamook, for 30 years of partnership and support! Together we can create a community free of violence. Kathleen Marvin, Executive Director Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center

Bay City Mayor: I endorse Andy Long for Sheriff Some decisions are easier. Such as, who has my vote for Sheriff – Andy Long. From the Coast Guard to the Sheriff’s Office, here’s a man whose career has been dedicated to helping us. I’ve met with him a number of times and always found him to be a well informed, dedicated professional. I wish all decisions were this easy. As mayor of Bay City and a long-time resident of Tillamook County, it’s an honor to endorse Andy Long for Sheriff. Shaena Peterson Bay City

Candidates forum set for Rockaway city election ROCKAWAY BEACH – A candidates forum will be held from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16 at the community room of City Hall for candidates running for Rockaway Beach City Council. Questions to city council and mayor candidates will be submitted in writing by audience members during this special question and answer session. Rockaway Beach residents are encouraged to attend and ask questions. Rockaway Beach is the only city in Tillamook County that will have a contested race on the November ballot. Five peo-


ple are running for four positions on the City Council. Three are incumbents — Richard Riley, Thomas Martine, and Bonnie Sedgemore. (Sedgemore was appointed at the Council’s Aug. 15 meeting, to replace Mardi Wing, who resigned.) The two “new faces� aren’t new, however. They’re Dave May and Sue Wilson, both of whom have served on the Rockaway Beach City Council before. May was recalled in July 2010, along with thenCouncilmember Ruth Daughtery. Wilson lost her bid for re-election in November

2010, and subsequently led the July 2011 recall campaign that unseated Mayor Dennis Porter and Councilmember Rodney Breazile. Rockaway Beach does not have councilors who represent particular districts or wards. The top four vote-getters in November will be the new Councilmembers who will be sworn in in January. Mayor Danell Boggs is unopposed for re-election. Jack McClave is the only member of the City Council not up for election. He’s in the middle of his term.

Ashamed to be an Oregonian Today, a Tillamook Circuit Court chose not to protect a 9year-old child. A child who has lived in their state for many years with his father, a child who will soon have his life ripped away to be taken to a foreign place with people he barely knows, many who hate him before he even arrives. Today, an Oregon Court chose not to even look at or listen to the pleadings of a distraught father. The paperwork was not right, although none is available that is. Though Oregon has jurisdiction, it is not their fight. How can someone else have sovereignty over a 9-year-old child who lives in Oregon with his father? Would it have hurt to have at least taken the time to read the paperwork? Today, I am ashamed to call myself an Oregonian. Joan Schoepfer Portland

‘I did not ask to be born this way’ I am currently panhandling but wanted to address something hurtful that was said to me. One of my disabilities is fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) and it says so on my sign. An old man read it, sneered at me and asked, “Quit drinking yet?� The keyword here is “fetal,� my birth mother was a drinker. Prenatal exposure to alcohol is the number one cause of preventable mental retardation in America. I don’t drink much at all! A Mike’s Hard Lemonade once in a while, but I find everything else repulsive. The alcohol that my birth mom drank killed my twin and sentenced me to a lifetime of hardship. I did not ask for this. I do not spend my money on destroying my brain cells since I need those I have. Most peo-

ple with FAS are worse off then me. I can live semi-independently. I’m usually not so easy to offend since I survived high school and all the torture that went with it but right now I am very sensitive. I have cerebral palsy (CP) which makes it hard to walk, and that is why I use a wheelchair to panhandle. Yes I can ride a bike but if I’m going to be in one place for more than a few minutes I need something to sit down on. I’ve had abuse yelled at me, been called dishonest, a fraud, scowled at, etc. I did not ask to be born this way. It makes me cry when people yell mean things at me from their cars. Please be kind. If you’ve a problem with me come and tell/ask me, don’t start rumors; that’s hurtful. Quinn Pender Tillamook

Kenny G’s was a lifesaver I wanted to write for two reasons. We are long time visitors to Rockaway Beach (27 years) but this year presented some new challenges. My mother started dialysis this year; so for a 3-week stay we had to figure out transportation 3 days per week to and from Rockaway to Tillamook. We tried to figure out what type of medical transport is available and found that for the elderly and very infirm this is a daunting task. Everyone we contacted was extremely helpful but options for this were very limited. The volunteers at Faith in Action were great and able to help with some rides. I especially wanted to say Kenny G’s taxi service was our lifesaver. Both Kenny and his drivers Robert and James were super. The Best! Kind, available, and helpful. I would say if you have someone who you need to get around outside of the Tillamook city limits or in, use this service. I think something for the county to come up with might be consistent medical transport (503) 842-7535

It’s easy to be scammed If I can be scammed, so can you! I’m super-cautious and believe no one, but when a young girl called me crying “Grandma! I’m scared to death! Please help me! I went to my friend’s dad’s funeral in Canada and while riding in a car we got stopped and they found drugs in the trunk and we were all arrested even though I tested clean. I’m so ashamed! Please please don’t tell anyone! Promise?� she sounded like my granddaughter amid the tears. She begged me to do what the police said. “Sgt. Royce� called and even had me call his police dept. number back and ask for him. So it sounded legit. He said she had two options: go through the American Embassy in Canada and wait months because of their “strike,� and other facts like: they only had 30 people etc., plus specific instructions on how to get her out today if I went though the Dominican Republic Embassy. I saved all the numbers he gave me to call with special instructions. There are many more details to this story but I’m saving space here. When the sergeant explained that the girl was so “distraught� that she was vomiting this terrified grandma was in hurry to help, and keep it all quiet! Foolishly I answered their questions,

like my “granddaughter� begged me to, called the Western Union number (complete with legit sounding recordings) and gave all the info. that “Sergeant Royce� needed and yes, I paid by my two credit cards. How stupid! But we were in a rush and I didn’t stop to think. But what finally saved me is a phone call from my real granddaughter, plus a quick cancellation of my two credit cards. I learned a huge lesson: slow down! Ask your loved one questions only they would know answers to. I swore I’d be smarter than this, but they have learned every trick to convince you it’s real. So beware! And pray! Aggie Dentel Tillamook

Tsunami logic? I don’t understand the logic behind removing the tsunami sirens. It’s true that they malfunction on occasion, but I believe, with a more strict service schedule, issues preventing them from sounding off would be eliminated. I personally would rather have my survival depend on a system that’s already in position than relying on a largely untested system that needs time to mobilize after an event occurs. Also, the land our airport lies on is nothing but reclaimed swampland, which, during large earthquakes, tends to liquefy. If that happened, the base of operations for our airborne alert system would be rendered useless, leaving everyone in the tsunami zones wondering what actions they should take to protect their loved ones.

Local GOP endorses Welsh, Baertlein BY JOE WRABEK

At their monthly meeting Oct. 4, the Tillamook County Republican Central Committee voted to endorse a nonRepublican running for state office — Jim Welsh of Manzanita — and also to endorse Bill Baertlein, one of the candidates in the non-partisan contest for Tillamook County commissioner. The endorsements were made as part of a general “Resolution of Support� primarily of Republican candidates running for statewide or national office. “The Tillamook County Republican Central Committee recognizes, applauds, and heartily endorses the candidacies,� the resolution said. The resolution was adopted unanimously. Welsh had won the Republican nomination in May 2012 for State House District 32, which includes Clatsop and the north half of Tillamook County, but subsequently quit the Republican Party, accepting the endorsement of the Constitution Party. The state Republican Party organization did not appoint a replacement Republican candidate. “Our endorsement of Jim Welsh was based on mutual

respect by the [precinct committeepersons] and admiration of his conservative principles,� Tillamook GOP chairman Tom Donohue said. “Jim has been a businessman in both Tillamook and Clatsop counties and understands what our future state government needs to do to nurture business interests in these counties.� The Tillamook Republican Central Committee endorsed Baertlein because “as an accountant and Port commissioner, he understands the bottom line better than his opponent,� Donohue said. “The non-partisan race for County Commissioner Position #1 we would normally not comment on,� Donohue said. “However, the Tillamook County Democratic Central Committee has already openly endorsed Ms. Phipps with literature in their campaign headquarters and have effectively made it a partisan race.� The other local nonpartisan race, for Tillamook County Sheriff, “has not been politicized because of bias or endorsements by other political parties,� Donohue said. “Therefore, the Tillamook County Republican Central Committee has no comment.�

Alfred Nilsson Long-time Tillamook resident Alfred John “Neil� Nilsson passed away peacefully Sept. 2, 2012. He is survived by friends too numerous to name, loving family, fans and probably more than a few people who could barely tolerate him. Hoist a glass, sing a song, hug a friend, spread some laughs in his name today. That is all he would have hoped for. There will be no services. If you must, I think the old man would probably appreciate it if you donated some food to your local food bank.

Gerald Kominoth Gerald Wayne Kominoth was born on Sept. 5, 1927 in Tillamook to John and Marie (Meyer) Kominoth. Gerald passed away in Tillamook on Sept. 21, 2012 at the age of 85 after a short illness. Two weeks prior to his death, he celebrated his birthday with more than 100 friends GERALD and family at KOMINOTH Trask Park. Gerald grew up on a farm in Idaville. He graduated from Tillamook High School in 1944, after which he joined the Army. He returned home and began picking up milk from various farms throughout the county. He then went to work for the Tillamook County Road Department. After that he went to work for Publisheis Papers and retired from there. He then began to work part-time at Coast Wide Ready Mix driving cement truck. He continued that until his mid 70s, when he decided to almost completely retire from his working days.

Nancy Whitehead receives a Lifetime Achievement Award presented on behalf of her and her husband Gordon's work for South County.

Futures Council gives out ‘Vision Awards’ BY SAMANTHA SWINDLER

MANZANITA – Tillamook County residents and organizations were honored Oct. 2 during the Tillamook County Futures Council annual banquet, held at the Pine Grove Community House. The Futures Council is a citizen advisory council to the County Commissioners on the long-term vision for the county. Awards are given to individuals and groups that give back to the community in six different categories. In Growth & Development, County Public Works Director Liane Welch was honored for her tireless efforts with a budget-strapped department. Other nominees were Michele Bradley with the Port of Tillamook Bay and South County’s Gordon & Nancy Whitehead. The Whiteheads received a Lifetime Achievement Award for their volunteer efforts. In Health & Human Services, the Waterhouse Falls Salmon Harvest Program was honored. Founded by Manzanita residents Bill Campbell and Mike Ehlen, the program processes returning hatchery Coho salmon on the North Fork Nehalem and provides the canned fish to the North County Food Bank. To date, the program has fed 6,000 people. Other nominees were Erin Skaar with CARE and Dr. Calvin Hill, MD. In the Society & Culture category, the Manzanita-based Eugene Schmuck Foundation took top honors. The foundation’s Manzanita Open golf tournament has raised more than $1 million, which has gone back to the community to support groups such as NeahKah-Nie schools, Meals on Wheels, CARTM, North County Food Bank, North County Recreation District, Rinehart

Clinic and more. Other nominees were Jane Scott, Linda Kozlowski, Gloria Scullin and Peter Nunn. There was only one nominee in the Natural Environment category, and it was well deserved. Winner Peter Walczak is NKN School District’s “biologist in residence.” He organizes outdoor excursion days for students, a “Sea Week” program, and gets students excited about the ecology around them. As award presenter Rick Kneeland announced, “the winner is.... the students of Neah-Kah-Nie.” The Youth & Education award was a tie, with plaques given to both the Tillamook County Library System and its many volunteers, and the North County Recreation District School Swim Program. Other nominees were the Mudd Nick Foundation and the countywide Teen Parent Program. Eugene Tish, owner of the Garibaldi House Inn & Suites, was honored in the Economy category; the other nominee was Jeff Shons and Mary Jones with Pelican Pub & Brewery.

Street project to cost $62K more than expected BY JOE WRABEK

GARIBALDI – The City’s “12th Street Project,” installing sidewalks, storm drains, pedestrian ramps, water mains, and lighting conduit along three blocks of Highway 101, will cost about $62,000 more than expected. The extra money covers replacing about 300 feet of storm drain and inlets between 11th St. and the driveway of the U.S. Coast Guard house, and beefing up the new sidewalks to compensate for “ground settling issues” identified by the contractor constructing the project. The additional work boosts the project cost from $129,000 to over $190,000. The Garibaldi City Council held a special meeting Wednesday, Oct. 3, to approve change orders allowing the contractor, David Roberts Excavating, to complete the work, and budgeting the additional funds.

The extra money is paying to “reconstruct public utilities that we installed in the spring,” city manager John O’Leary told the Headlight Herald. The contractor “has to uninstall what was there and install it different and deeper,” he said. The sidewalks themselves have to be thicker than originally planned, and be reinforced with wire mesh. As the Headlight Herald went to press, sidewalks had already been completed from 10th to 11th Streets. The entire project is intended to be finished in time for the Coast Guard’s popular haunted house event Saturday, Oct. 27. People will be able to walk to the Coast Guard’s haunted house at 12th and Highway 101 on the new sidewalks, O’Leary said. ODOT has announced plans to re-pave Highway 101 in the summer of 2014, from Nedonna Beach to Idaville, O’Leary said.


The Tillamook area AAUW (American Association of University Women) will hold its annual recruitment event on Sunday, Oct. 21 starting at 1 p.m. at the Oregon Department of Forestry, 5005 Third Street in Tillamook. Afternoon tea will be served accompanied by a variety of savory and sweet offerings. Those interested in AAUW and its activities are invited. The menu will include tea sandwiches, scones, and sweets to finish plus a variety of teas or coffee. Cynthia Rauscher, AAUW state president, will be the guest speaker. The AAUW works together to promote the welfare, education, and rights of all women and girls. For more information, contact Nancy Contolini at 503521-6423 or

Winds scoured the landscape from northern California, where it began, to the Washington-Canadian border, and inland to the Cascades. People who lived in western Oregon 50 years ago remember the Columbus Day Storm in vivid detail; it was so powerful and shocking, really, in a part of the world that doesn’t experience those kinds of winds, that images from the storm are permanently etched in the minds of people who lived through the “Big Blow” that October evening in 1962.

ANDREA JENCK In Tillamook County, one of the most dramatic stories is the blow-down of the Jenck's dairy barn on Third Street. Andrea Jenck was a newlywed in October of 1962, bride of Don “Hooker” Jenck. The young couple was returning from their honeymoon in California on the evening of October 12, just as the storm was picking up speed. “We saw signs blowing,” she said, “trees were bending. We were thinking, oh my goodness, what is going on here?” The Jenck dairy farm was on Third Street, west of the hospital. As they approached the bridge on Third Street they saw a man struggling to walk in the wind. “A guy was walking on the bridge in a raincoat. The wind picked him up and blew his coat up around his head and we saw him tumble into the ditch. We stopped and tried to help him, but he said he was OK.” “The honeymoon was over, I can tell you. That storm was the most scary thing I have ever seen in my life.” The couple arrived at home and immediately Hooker went out to milk the cows. At the time, the Jencks had 70-75 cows in their herd. Hooker was milking the cows in the barn and the wind was roaring. The doors on the barn that opened onto Third Street were banging violently, and as Hooker later told Andrea, “He thought the wind was going to tear the doors off the barn. He got up from the milking parlor and walked to the doors. As soon as he stepped outside the barn the wind picked him up and tossed him across the road. He flew across the road, and the barn collapsed right behind him. That was the miracle part. The barn collapsed the moment he stepped out of it. “He said his feet never touched the road. The wind blew him over the road and over the barbed wire fence. He landed in a field on the other side of the fence. He heard the crashing behind him and turned and saw the barn falling down in the road. And when the barn came down, the power lines came down after it. Hooker stood in that field watching power lines sparking in the dark behind him. “And the poor cows were bawling under the barn. They were trapped in there, under the barn and the hay. We’d just put in hay for the winter. We couldn’t get them out. It was very sad. We lost about 35 cows. We lost half the herd. “Hooker made it back to the house and he said, ‘Oh my God, the barn blew over.’ The power was out and the wind was so loud. It was terrifying.” “But there’s always good with bad,” said Andrea. “The next day Hooker’s mother went to church and said a mass for him, thanking God for saving his life. All of our family and neighbors came out and helped us clean it up. We got the road cleared off.” The barn had fallen and landed in Third Street. “We got the cows out and we got the hay out. We tore the old barn down. So many people from all over town came to help us. People I didn’t even know were helping us. It was amazing. It was wonderful, how people came together after the storm. “A man from Scappoose showed up after the storm. He

said his son had a farm and his son had died, so the man had heifers for sale. Hooker said we couldn’t afford them. The man said that we could pay for the heifers when they started milking. That way, we replaced the cows that we lost with 30 very good cows. The quality of those heifers was so good, that within two years we were the top-producing dairy in Tillamook County. So something good even came from that, which was really very sad. You never know what life will bring you, but we always have something to be thankful for.”

RON ZERKER Ron Zerker lives in Burns now, but he grew up on a dairy farm on Wilson River Loop Road. He was in high school in 1962 when the Columbus Day Storm hit. “I remember being on an activity bus, we were headed to the valley. The bus driver got word that there was a big storm coming, and we turned around and came home. “A week or two before that we had a real freaky east storm, and I guess I thought it was going to be another one like that. But this was different. It got deathly quiet before it hit. You could have heard a pin drop. “We got the cows in the barn and then I went down to the river to try to save my boat. I had a little boat tied up down there. But then the wind was blowing so hard I could barely stand up, and then trees started falling. “I knew I better get out of there. I had to leave my boat. I made it back to the house, and then the power went out. “The next day we drove around to see how other people made out. We went out to the Jenck farm. The barn came down on his cows. It was the most devastating thing I’ve ever seen. They had to crawl in there and put those cows out of their misery. It was just terrible. Jenck was lucky he made it out of there alive.” Back at the Zerker dairy, the power was out for days, and the cows still had to be milked. Ron was enlisted for the job of milking the herd by hand, twice a day. “We used a milking machines, but the power was out, and no one knew how long it would take before it came back on. We had to milk those cows, and after a couple of days, my hands hurt from milking by hand. “Then I had a genius idea. I don’t know how I ever though of it, except that my hands hurt, so I was motivated. “I figured out how to run the milking machines off our old Chevy pickup. On the manifold on a pickup there was a plug. I unscrewed it and I put this connector on there.

Then I took a garden hose to screw onto that. Then I ran the hose to the other end of the milking machines, which ran off air pressure. When I revved the engine up to so many RPM’s it ran the milking machines. “My uncle couldn’t believe it when he heard we were running the milking machines off of the Chevy manifold. He had to come over to see it for himself.”

TERRY LEWIS “I was almost 15 when the Columbus Day storm hit. Our family lived on the Bud Gienger farm at the end of Squeedunk Road. It was located on the east edge of Tillamook Bay, fully exposed to the weather. The house was very large and sturdy. It had four fireplaces and heavy wooden shutters for the windows. “When the winds first came up there was no reason to think it was something other than another typical fall windstorm common to the Oregon Coast. I found an army surplus canvas stretcher and used it for a sail. It had little short legs and handles on either end. Wearing slick barn boots, I held the stretcher up behind me and I "skied" across the wet pasture, the strong wind pushing me. I had a couple of good runs of 20 to 30 yards. “It was really windy, a sustained, strong wind. Pretty soon there was all this debris in the air. I started to get hit with small airborne sticks and other debris. My face was peppered. “I got scared (not common for a 15 year old). I fought my way back into the wind to the safety of the house, trying to protect my face from debris. “Our family closed all the window shutters, darkening the house. The big strong house shook for hours. We were worried. “We all made it. But the news of really how big the storm and widespread the damage did not come until later.”

“I was 10 years old and my parents and brother and I left Tillamook early that morning to travel to Seattle to visit the World's Fair. The ride was fairly routine until the skies began to darken and the rain began falling harder than I had ever seen. My parents assured us that nothing was wrong. “We arrived in Seattle and settled into our hotel room. We were going to have dinner at the World's Fair, the restaurant at the top of The Space Needle. The news on the TV was grim...they were telling people to stay indoors and to stay away from windows! That didn't stop us from heading out to the Fair! “We rode the Monorail into the park and I can tell you there were no long lines! We headed for the Space Needle and made it to the top floor. Once there it became obvious that the weather had turned violent. The entire Space Needle was swaying back and forth and windows were blowing out...but my Dad kept assuring us that there wasn't a problem! “At this point my brother and I were on the floor deciding that this was the safest spot for us. Finally my Dad decided that maybe it would be best to get down to the ground level. We managed to get on the last elevator going down. As we got out of the elevator the electricity went out and the remaining people were forced to walk down the interior of the Space Needle to the ground. “I will never forget the feeling of relief that we had actually made it out of that swinging building. We walked back to our hotel and stayed away from the windows as the winds got stronger and stronger...finally we were doing what we should have done all along...stay inside. “We left early the next morning to make the long trip back to Tillamook. All along the highway trees were down as well as power lines. I still don't know how we made it back home in one piece; it was the longest trip ever. “Once we arrived in Tillamook, it became apparent that the hurricane had hit us hard. Trees had fallen in our yard on Third St. and barely missed hitting our house. The electricity was off for several days and we were lucky to have several fireplaces, as the weather was still bad, with lots of rain and wind. “The Columbus Day Storm made quite a lasting impression on this 10 year old. I don't know very many people that can say that they were at the top of The Space Needle when the hurricane hit!”

Toddler Taylor Carter was seriously injured in September when she was run over by a lawnmower. The accident left her foot badly damaged, and repair and healing may take years, Loughrie said. “We’ve gathered together local people who are musicians, singers and songwriters,” Loughrie told the Headlight Herald. Besides Loughrie and Bassett themselves, the lineup of performers includes Martin Asinoff, Adam and Sydney Elliott, Sonya Kazen, Brandon McKillip and friends, Eric Sappington, Carl Wilson, and Joe Wrabek. “The whole community will be involved by the time we’re done with it,” Loughrie said. There is no gate fee, Loughrie said. “We’re just

asking for donations.” All proceeds go to the family, he said. The old Nestucca Middle School building is on Blaine Rd., across from the Shell station in Beaver. Since the middle school moved to Cloverdale (and is now housed in the same building as the high school), the old building has been used for Head Start, plus the gym is still in use. “It’s a beautiful gym, with wood walls,” Loughrie said, ideal for concerts. The Nestucca School District is reportedly making the building available free of charge. “The school district has opened up their arms and said ‘Whatever you need, you can have’,” Loughrie said. “We’re all in this together.”

SR team looks New principal for Nestucca elementary for missing man with local ties BY NANCY WHITEHEAD For the Headlight Herald


On Oct. 3 the Tillamook County Search and Rescue (SR) team joined forces with Yamhill County SR as well as teams from Marion and Multnomah Counties to look for Sean Kosky, 24, of McMinnville, who went missing September 30. Sean is the nephew of Sheldon Oil's Keith Kosky. “He was at his cousin’s house,” said Keith Kosky, a Tillamook County SR member, who helped search for his nephew. “His cousin went into another room, and when she came out, he was gone. They live adjacent to Miller Woods, and Sean liked to go there.” Miller Woods is an approximately 130-acre, heavily wooded property owned by the Yamhill Soil and Water Conservation District. It is full of steep hills, trees and creeks. This is where the searchers concentrated their efforts. Approximately 100 SR personnel and volunteers turned out to look for Sean. They looked on foot and on horseback, on quads and from helicopters and with dogs. They did not find any sign of him. “Sean is medically fragile,” said his uncle. “He has a really severe seizure disorder. He’s been without his meds now for days. He has to take his meds a couple of times a day to control his seizures. There are people who aren’t really capable of caring for themselves, or assisting you in finding them,” said Kosky, “that’s Sean.” Keith Kosky is grateful for the level of professionalism and dedication searchers devoted to trying to find his nephew. “It was textbook and

very well done,” he said. “It’s not unusual, we always answer with a good showing of people. But it really made me proud to see the number of people who turned out. Most of SEAN KOSKY them have to take a day off to do it. They’re losing pay and time to do this work. Even though they’ve suspended the search in that area for now, I feel good about it. If he’d been there, they’d have found him.” Keith is hopeful that his nephew met up with someone he knew, and will wander home on his own. “Knock on wood and keep our fingers crossed that he turns up in a couple of days and wonders what all the fuss is about.” Dean Burdick of the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office described Keith Kosky as a key member of the SR team. “When people heard it was Keith’s nephew we were looking for, and that we had a chance to find him, they came out of the woodwork to help out,” said Burdick. “In the event that we get more information, we’re on stand-by to go back and search again.” “It’s different being on the receiving end of a search,” said Keith, “seeing the compassion and respect that families are treated with. I’m just really grateful.” Anyone with information about Sean Kosky’s whereabouts is encouraged to call the Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office at 503434-7506.

CLOVERDALE – Nestucca Valley Elementary School (NVES) has a new acting principal. Former Principal Nick Gelbard retired in September after many years of wearing many hats in education, including administrator of south county’s sole public elementary school. Taking over as acting principal is Misty Wharton of Cloverdale. For Wharton, her new position is an exciting opportunity, an important step in her career, and a homecoming. Wharton is the daughter of Rose and Randy Wharton of Cloverdale. She attended NVES when it was still called Cloverdale Elementary School. She is a 1996 graduate of Nestucca High School, and a 2000 graduate of Portland State University. After college, Misty joined AmeriCorps and worked as Service Learning Coordinator for the Nestucca Valley School

Misty Wharton

District. Finding she truly enjoyed working with young people, Wharton went on to get her master’s degree in teaching (MAT) at George Fox University. She also has the administrative credential required of principals in public schools. She has worked in the Nestucca Valley

School District for the last nine years, teaching Government, World Geography, and Economics at Nestucca Junior/Senior High. She has coached cross-county, track, softball and volleyball. Having grown up and worked in south county, Wharton feels support from the community in taking on her new role; as she said, “I only have to learn the school, not the community.” She looks forward to working with community members, NVES teachers and support staff, Superintendent Kathryn Hedrick, and the students. She expressed delight in how openly her young charges enjoy school and how proud they are of their learning. She is looking forward to getting to know her students, their struggles and triumphs, and excited about helping them achieve. Wharton will serve as acting principal until an official hiring process is completed. She is expected to apply for the position.

New fire station lowers some insurance rates

MOHLER – Evaluated in September 2011 by Insurance Services Offices (ISO), the Nehalem Bay Fire & Rescue District is making public the final report it received this May. With the completion of the new substation near Mohler, it spells good news for rural homeowners who live within five miles of the station. Prior to the formation of the new fire district, the ISO classification was a Protection Class 5 if you lived within five miles of a fire station and within 1,000 feet of a hydrant. Everyone outside of those distances was a Class 10. With the results of the new report, today, if you live within five miles of a station and 1,000 feet of a hydrant, the rating is still a Class 5. However, if you are within five (5) miles of a station but not within 1000’ of a hydrant, the new ISO Protection Class rating for homeowners is a Class 6 rather than a Class 10. “This will save many NBFR District patrons several hundred dollars per year on their homeowner’s insurance,” said Chief Perry Sherbaugh. The ISO Protection Class rating is what most insurance companies use when figuring

your homeowner’s insurance premium. ISO scores the fire district using three factors: • Receiving and handling fire alarms (Tillamook 911) up to 10 points • Fire Department - up to 50 points • Water Supply (city water systems) and rural area tender shuttle - up to 40 points Using a complicated formula, ISO assigns a fire district an ISO Protection rating of Class 1 through Class 10. Class 1 is the best and Class 10 is the worst. “There are no Class 1 fire departments in Oregon and there are only 22 designated as Class 2. Most are a Class 5,” said Sherbaugh. The fire district recently completed the new fire station at 37715 Hwy 53, Nehalem. Homeowners’ ISO Protection Class will be the same as mentioned above if their property is within five miles of that new station. Sherbaugh reminds homeowners, if this new classification affects their property, to call their insurance company and see what ISO classification they have been previously classified as. “You should be entitled to a lower insurance cost and possibly a refund.”

A LOOK AT NOVEMBER BALLOT MEASURES, PART I Note: Financial contributions to committees include donations reviewed by the state as of Sept. 14, 2012. For a complete account of financial contributions or to read statements for or against the ballot measures, visit


Suspends constitutional spending restrictions in case of “catastrophic disaster”

HOW IT IS NOW: Governor has statutory authority to declare a state of emergency, during which the governor and legislature are limited by constitutional spending restrictions.

IF IT PASSES, IT WOULD: • Give governor constitutional authority to declare “catastrophic disaster,” which would override constitutional spending limits and allow governor to redirect general fund and lottery monies from allocated uses to disaster response and recovery. • Catastrophic disaster is defined as “a natural or humancaused event resulting in extraordinary levels of death, injury property damage or disruption of daily life and severely affecting the population, infrastructure, environment, economy or government.” The phrases “extraordinary levels” and “severely effects” are not defined. • Governor must convene legislature within 30 days of declaring “catastrophic disaster.” Legislature can meet outside of the capitol or electronically. • During a “catastrophic disaster,” the legislature may: • Suspend rules with twothirds of attending members and pass bills with three-fifths of attending members. • Pass tax bills that would take effect upon passage. • Override constitutional limitations on spending state Highway Fund (gas tax), indi-

vidual and corporate tax “kicker” refunds and lottery funds. • Allow legislature to exceed state debt limit. • Override funding of local mandate provisions. • Powers granted by Measure 77 would end 30 days after the declaration of “catastrophic disaster,” but may be extended by legislature.

EFFECT ON THE STATE BUDGET? Financial impact is uncertain and dependent on the frequency of “catastrophic disasters,” if the legislature would need to be called to a special session, and how long the special session would be.


Updates constitutional language and spelling

HOW IT IS NOW: The state constitution currently describes the separate governmental powers (executive, legislative, judicial) as “departments,” the two legislative bodies are called “branches,” and the secretary of state is referred to with male pronouns.

IF IT PASSES, IT WOULD: • Make changes to the language and spelling of the state constitution to conform to contemporary language: • Executive, legislative and judicial powers would be described as “branches.” • Legislative houses would be called “chambers.” • The secretary of state would be described in genderneutral terms. • Other spelling, punctuation and grammar errors would be corrected.

EFFECT ON THE STATE BUDGET? No financial impact.


Constitutionally prohibits real estate transfer tax, fees

HOW IT IS NOW: State law prohibits local governments from taxing or issuing fees for most real estate transfers, but allows the state legislature to impose real estate transfer taxes/fees. There is currently no state real estate transfer tax or fee.

IF IT PASSES: State and local governments would be constitutionally prohibited from imposing taxes, fees or assessments on the transfer of interest in real property. Those in operation Dec. 31, 2009, would remain in place.

EFFECT ON THE STATE BUDGET? No financial impact.

PEOPLE FOR IT SAY: “Home owners like us have already been paying property taxes — some of the highest in the country. A real estate transfer tax would be nothing more than double taxation. I definitely support this measure to stop another tax.” – Victor Kee, Pete Anderson Realty

2012 FINANCING: Yes on 79 $2,502,610.95 - National Association of Realtors $939,372 - Protect Oregon Homes 2012 $843,135.95 - Oregon Association of Realtors $732,500 Oregon Family Farm Association PAC (also supports Measure 84 and opposes Measure 85) $124,350 - Loren Parks $107,500 - Golden Tree Agriculture Inc. $5,000 - Mid-Willamette Agriculture LLC $5,000 Oregon Small Business Association PAC (also supports Measure 84 and opposes Measure 85) $187,430 - Loren Parks $177,500 - Healthy Communities Initiative $7,500 - Brian Boquist $1,500 Taxpayers Association of

Oregon PAC (also supports Measure 84 and opposes Measure 85) $9,862 - Naideen Butler $250



PEOPLE AGAINST IT SAY: “Constitutional Amendment 79 is not a positive solution. It doesn’t solve any of our real problems, and it doesn’t belong in the Constitution. It will only limit options and clutter up our Constitution—a document designed for Oregon’s long term future. It deserves better than to become a list of limitations.” – Oregon Housing Alliance

2012 FINANCING: Defend Oregon (also opposes Measure 84) Has not received campaign contributions in 2012


Legalize cannabis cultivation and use

HOW IT IS NOW: Cultivation, distribution and use of marijuana (cannabis) is prohibited, except as allowed under the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act.

IF IT PASSES, IT WOULD: • Authorize personal cultivation/use of marijuana. • Create new criminal penalties for illegal sale of marijuana, transport of marijuana out of state and unlawful distribution of marijuana to minors. • Ban public consumption of marijuana, except in authorized areas that aren’t open to minors. • Uphold existing state and local laws regarding medical marijuana and driving under the influence. • Distinguish hemp from marijuana, and prohibit regulation of hemp • Establish an Oregon Cannabis Commission to regulate commercial growth, handling and sale of cannabis. Growers themselves would elect five of the seven mem-

OTHER FINANCIAL IMPACTS: • Expense of $75,000 per year for one half-time pharmacist with the state Board of Pharmacy; • Savings between $1.4 million and $2.4 million a year for reduced expenditures for felony offenders with related convictions in prison and on probation; • Expenditures of between $1.6 million and $3.3 million per year to ensure court case files released to the public do not contain names or addresses of applicants, licensees and purchasers of cannabis.

PEOPLE FOR IT SAY: “When we vote yes on Measure 80, we’re voting yes on creating thousands of new jobs. We’re voting yes on rebuilding, sustainably, the industries Oregon used to rely on, industries like our pulp and paper mills, our timber industries, our textile mills. And we’re supporting emerging

Tillamook comes through late against Astoria, spark missing against Banks BY JOSIAH DARR

Headlight Herald Sports JOSIAH DARR PHOTO

After two games of domination over Yamhill-Carlton and Seaside, the Tillamook Lady Cheesemakers hosted the always tough Astoria Fishermen on Oct. 2. Tillamook came out fired up at home and beat Astoria 25-17 in the first game, but Astoria came right back and took the second game, 25-22. The Third game was where things started looking bad for the Lady Cheesemakers in the best of five series. Astoria took the third game 25-20 and took the momentum and the advantage. Somewhere deep down, Tillamook found the strength to take the fourth set, 25-16, regaining the momentum going into the tie-breaker fifth set. The last game was a nothing short of a thriller with both teams making big plays and huge saves, but it was Tillamook that willed their way to the 15-13 victory. “The biggest thing we can take away from that game was how well we pulled together and fought as a team,” said Tillamook Head Coach Kim Seidel. “Sometimes that’s a struggle for us when we fall behind. We aren’t always

(From left) Kennady Johnson and Marissa Zerngast go up together for a big block late in the fourth game in the Cheesemakers comeback win over Astoria. as mentally tough as we could be and it was huge for this team to dig deep like that.” Tillamook vs. Banks There was no rest for the Lady Cheesemakers after their big win over Astoria. They had to bounce back ready to go against a very good Banks team on Oct. 4. “The Banks game had a very different feel,” Seidel said. “We didn’t have the energy level at all, which was disappointing because we’ve beaten Banks already this year in a tournament so we know we have the skill and we’re capable. We just didn't pull it off.” Tillamook lost a close first set to Banks, 26-24 and followed that up with a 25-19 win to even the match looking as if they were going to find that inner something they had against Astoria only a few days prior. But all those hopes were extinguished when

Banks won the next two sets, 25-18 to take the match. That loss put Scappoose, Tillamook and Astoria into a three-way tie for second place in the the Cowapa League behind Banks. “The morale in practice the next day after that game was terrible. We were just really down as a group,” Seidel said. “But we can pick it up from here on out and keep getting wins.” While the team as a whole didn’t have the best night against Banks, there were a few bright spots and one particular player that really filled in the void. “Natalie Travis had an amazing night for us,” Seidel said. “When it was clear everyone wasn’t having their best games, she picked it up and shined for us.” Travis was 15 for 21 serving in the game and added 6 kills, while Katie Warren had 24 kills and 14 blocks in the game. Kara Moore had seven kills and Kennady Johnson had 14.

“What really hurt us against Banks was they blocked us over and over again,” Seidel said. “We’re a power hitting team and we’ve never had someone do that to us. Once it started happening we sorta didn’t know what to do and kinda lost it. “Next time we’ll be better with our finesse game and put the ball where they’re not.” Tillamook @ Scappoose On Oct. 9 Tillamook went to Scappoose to play a team that had already handed them a tough loss this season. Tillamook didn’t waste any time getting their revenge. Tessa Streeter and Christine Schillier were on fire in the back row and the rest of the Cheesemakers didn’t struggle one bit. Tillamook swept Scappoose in three straight sets 25-23, 25-13 and 25-18. Tillamook is now in sole possession of second place in the Cowapa League and the No. 7 ranked team in the state.

A No. 1 ranking early in the season is often a death sentence for a football team at the college and high school level. It can give a team too much confidence and their opponents even more motivation to beat them. The Nestucca Bobcats were toting that No. 1 spot when they traveled to Knappa for their first Northwest League game of the season on Oct. 5. After causing the Loggers to go three and out on their first drive, a bobble on the fourth down gave the Bobcats a short field to start the game. A tough run from Zach Welch put the Bobcats on the doorstep and a 2-yard touchdown run from Drace Moeller got them on the board early for a 6-0 lead. Knappa didn’t take long to tie the game up with an 11-yard touchdown pass of their own on their next drive. Nestucca went deep on their next possession when quarterback Max Kirkendall hit Jade Downs for a 51-yard strike, but like any good fighter, the Loggers took the punch and came back with one of their own. They did it running the ball up the middle. “They did a great job of blowing that open,” said Bobcats Head Coach Jeff Schiewe about the Loggers touchdown drive. The Loggers missed the extra point keeping the Bobcats leading 13-12. That was when things started going south for Nestucca.

Portland Christian hands Neah-Kah-Nie a lopsided Homecoming loss BY JOSIAH DARR

Headlight Herald Sports

Homecoming is a special thing for tens of thousands of high school kids across the country. There’s the dance and the festivities at school throughout the week, but there’s also a home football game. Often it’s the best attended game of the season. That was no different for the Neah-Kah-Nie Pirates when they held their Homecoming football game against the Portland Christian Royals on Oct. 5. Unfortunately for the Pirates, the Royals were anything but a courteous guest. On the

contrary, they were flat out rough on the Pirates’, beating them 48-12 to spoil the Pirates festivities. You couldn’t have been dealt a much worse hand for a Homecoming game than to have Portland Christian coming to town. The Royals are now 6-0 on the season, ranked No. 3 in the state and they’re averaging 43.1 points per game this season making them seem fairly unstoppable a the moment. “They have a lot of great athletes on that team, that’s for sure,” said Pirate Head Coach Scott Ross. “We made too many mistakes in the first half and you can’t give a team like

P.C. a short field.” Those athletes Ross referred to didn’t wast any time getting on the scoreboard against the Pirates. A 28-yard touchdown pass, a 10-yard touchdown pass and a 50-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter gave the Royals a quick 20-0 lead. While some teams may have thrown in the towel, the Pirates didn’t. Craig Grasseth especially kept fighting. Grasseth broke loose a 35-yard touchdown run to get the pirates on the scoreboard for their first six points of the night. Those were 35 of Grasseth’s 99 tough yards he racked up on

16 carries throughout the night in true workhorse fashion. “He pretty much does all the dirty work for us on both sides of the ball,” Ross Said. “This season it’s been a pleasure to watch him really become the player we knew he could be.” Grasseth’s touchdown was the only offense the Pirates could muster and went into halftime trailing, 48-6. Grasseth got his second touchdown on a 36-yard run in the second half and the Pirates defense did tighten up, but they were too far behind to make a serious comeback attempt. Portland Christian won the game,

28-12. The Pirates will try to get their first league win when they travel to Knappa on Oct. 12 for a 7 p.m. game against the Knappa Loggers and Coach Ross knows his team will need to be ready when they step off the bus. “That’s always a tough team, especially on the road,” Ross said. “They’ve been playing football since third-grade and they know how to play up there so we’ll regroup and try to have a better second week in league.”

Lady Pirates struggle through league play BY JOSIAH DARR

Headlight Herald Sports

The Neah-Kah-Nie Pirate volleyball team was looking at a 3-2 Northwest League record when they hosted the visiting Gaston Greyhounds on Oct. 2. The Pirates were sharing the lead for first place in the league and needed to win over Gaston to remain at the top. The first set was rocky for the Lady Pirates and Gaston easily took a 25-15 win. The second set was a much better for Neah-KahNie. They fought hard and battled into extra point to get the win, 27-25 to tie at one set apiece. Gaston must have had a little more fuel in the tank down the stretch because


they battled hard in the next two matches and beat NKN 25-21 and 27-25 to win the match. The Pirates fell to 3-3 in league, but looked to get back above .500 when they traveled to Knappa for a 5:30 p.m. game on Oct. 4.

Continued from Page A12

A questionable no-call on a pass from Kirkendall to Welch crippled the Bobcats’ next drive and the Loggers took advantage. Knappa quickly scored to take the lead 18-13 into halftime, but the Bobcats again denied the 2-point conversion, keeping the game close. Nestucca took the ball to start the second half, but the Knappa defense cinched down, not giving up much to the Bobcats and causing them to give the ball up on downs. Nestucca contained the Knappa quarterback most of the game, but he did have a few plays where he got loose and was able to hurt the Bobcats. “The kid was tough,” Schiewe said. “We could knock him down the play before and he’d get right back up and complete the next pass.” The Nestucca defense kept fighting for the rest of the game and for the most part stopped the Loggers most of the way. The problem was they’d force a third or fourth and long and somehow the Bobcats couldn’t close the door. Somehow the Loggers kept finding a way to convert and keep the ball moving. It was simply that kind of night for the rest of the game.

Astoria too much for Cheesemakers

“Basically our defense would hold tough again for three plays when they needed four,” Schiewe said. “We were missing Sam Whiteman with a broken thumb which hurt too. His long dives and his pressure on the quarterback are hard to replace. “The difference between a senior and younger players is that often times the senior is singular in focus and Sam had been doing a terrific job of containing and forcing opposing quarterbacks to do bad things. The younger kids got some good hits, but Sam had been so effective!” Knappa added more scoring and Nestucca was unable to put the ball in the endzone again. “We have to stop the big play,” Schiewe said with disgust. “Third down and fourth down conversions were where we were hurt. That is too bad and it leaves a bad taste.” The Bobcats fell to the Loggers, 40-13. The Bobcats will try to get their first league win next week when they host Vernonia on Oct. 12 for their Homecoming game. There will be a booster tailgate party prior to the game and festivities at halftime.

The Tillamook Cheesemakers football team was looking for a big Cowapa League win when they hosted the Astoria Fishermen on Oct. 5. Tillamook was coming off a lopsided loss at the hands of the Seaside Seagulls the week prior, but a win over Astoria would move them back to .500 in league and keep them right in the thick of things for a possible crack at league title.

Tillamook Soil and Water Seeks Permanent Tax Rate The Tillamook Soil and Water Conservation District lacks stable base funding for operations, relying entirely on grants which are susceptible to interruptions in funding. This measure would help ensure the District’s ability to serve the people of Tillamook County, and provides local control to offer the complement of available conservation practices. lt will enable the district to obtain matching funds by applying for project and grant monies. The District provides technical, financial and educational assistance to the local community to solve natural resource problems and to address conservation priorities including erosion control, flood hazards, water conservation and water quality, farmland productivity, integrated pest management, invasive species control, watershed protection and fish and wildlife habitat enhancement and management. Funds from this measure will maintain current services while meeting increased demands for assistance. The permanent rate limit would cost the owner of a $100,000 home $6.00 a year, and is an upper limit that by law can never be raised.

Exalted Ruler of the Tillamook Elks Bob Bales presented Tillamook Anglers fouder Jerry Dove with a check for $2,000 to help offset the costs of the Tillamook Anglers annual Kid with Disabilites Fishing Day that was held in September. The Elks were happy to do anything they could to help a worthy charity in Tillamook County.


This year’s Neah-Kah-Nie Pirates cross country team is surpassing all its expectations and with the youth and talent on the team, the Pirates could be a league title contender for years to come.

NKN XC wins NW League Championships Headlight Herald Sports

The Neah-Kah-Nie cross country team is quietly doing something this season that they haven’t done as a team since 1997 and 1999. Both the boys and girls are Northwest League Champions. Cross country for the Pirates is split up a little differently than other sports. Instead of being classified in the Northwest League like say, the football or volleyball team, they are lumped into the District 1, which includes a much larger swath of teams. But, on Sept. 27 the Pirates had a Northwest League championship meet and they were excellent. The girls team hadn’t won the NW League meet since

1997 and the boys since 1999. But it all that changed when not only did both teams win, but they also had a huge group of runners receive All League honors. To be named as All League, a runner must finish in the top six places and there were plenty of Pirates in those spots. For the girls team it was freshman Annie Romig, freshman Erin Savage and senior Willa Childress earning the honors. For the boys it was junior Logan Romig, junior Matt Clayton and freshman Julian Croman. The number of runners performing well and the youth of those runners signify a resurgence of Neah-Kah-Nie cross country that hasn’t been seen in

quite some time. “Last year we just didn't have the numbers of kids we needed to be a good team,� said junior runner Matt Clayton. “This year we have twice as many people out running and everyone is working hard and pushing each other. I feel like if we keep this up, the rest of the year is going to continue to be good for us.� The Pirates have a big month left in October with three more meets all capped off with Northwest League districts on Oct. 18 at Vernonia and the District 1 Championships held at Tualatin Hills Recreation Center Oct. 25.

Bobcat Volleyball looking for first league win The Nestucca Bobcat volleyball team had a big week of Northwest League games coming up. The Lady 'Cats are 0-5 so far this year in league play after falling to Portland Christian on Oct. 4 in straight sets. To the Bobcats' credit, Portland Christian is 8-0 so far this season in leage play and the top team in the Northwest League as well as being the No. 12 team in the state. The Bobcats did get a string game at the net from Emily Menefee with seven blocks for the match. “We served well as a team at 93-percent, but were overpowered by their hitters,� said Bobcat Head Coach John Elder. The Bobcats will keep looking for their first league win this week, hosting three Northwest League Teams.

Farmers market season wrap-ups BY MARY FAITH BELL

It’s official, fall is in the air. It’s cold and foggy in the mornings again, thermometers are dipping into the thirties in the hills, and our growing season is coming to an end. The three farmers markets in Tillamook County – in Neskowin, Tillamook and Manzanita– enjoyed terrific seasons, great crowds, superb vendors and the kind of success that comes from doing what you love and loving what you do and sharing your labors with your neighbors. Here are market season wrap-up reports

and photos from the three farmers markets around the county. Perhaps in the dormant months of winter you’ll think of something you’d like to grow or make or catch or bake to offer at your local farmers market next year. I’m also including recipes in this issue of Farm to Fork for Carrot-Dill Soup and NoKnead Artisan Bread. Fall is the perfect season for homemade vegetable soup and what goes better with soup than fresh-baked bread? Visit to watch our first ever Headlight Herald cooking video, where I demonstrate the carrot soup and bread recipes with the delightful assistance of my friend Al Wylder, 89, of Hebo, who simply loves good food.

Tillamook Farmers' Market has record season Neskowin Market wrap-up The Neskowin Farmer’s Market concluded its second season this year, and market manager Nancy Hadley described the market’s dramatic growth in no uncertain terms: “We’re a bajillion times bigger than last year.” The Neskowin market was Hadley’s brainchild. She’s not a farmer, but rather, a shopper, and she wanted the farmer’s market community experience for the village of Neskowin. “My family has had a house here in Neskowin for my whole life, for many decades, and when I decided to move here I had a dream of bringing a farmers market to Neskowin.” Hadley’s dream has reaped big rewards, not only for local farmers and vendors who did a booming business there, but for the village, as a gathering place on Saturday mornings. The market had up to 12 vendors, some anchor businesses who came every week, and others who set up occasionally; about 70 percent locally sourced foods and 30 percent arts and handcrafts. Some of the vendors included Corvus Landing Farm in Neskowin, Ground Score Farms in Hebo, the Rockfish Bakery in Lincoln City, the Blacktail Café in Pacific City, Hello Granola in Lincoln City. Judie Rubert sold felted and hand-spun woolen items in her “wool-ology” booth; Barb

MacPherson, a Neskowin photographer, sold her local images; and local author Jan Boutin sold copies of her book, Historic Neskowin Village by the Sea. “The Neskowin community just embraced the market,” said Nancy Hadley. “It was the gathering spot on Saturday mornings. We opened at 9 a.m., but people started lining up at 8:30. Locals did their weekly shopping at the market. You could come to the market and buy produce, fresh eggs, baked goods, and fresh fish. The camaraderie was wonderful, people visited and caught up on the news.” Hadley kept a guest book, and was amazed to find that visitors came from all over North America and abroad. “We had folks here from Denmark and France, New York and Canada, it was wonderful.” Signage helped get the word out. In particular, the Neskowin Farmers Market advertised in Pacific City, which doesn’t have a market, and soon folks from P.C. were dropping in on Saturday mornings to join the fun.

Manzanita Farmers Market Recap Market shoppers and vendors alike report that 2012 was one of our best market seasons ever … the weather on Friday evenings cooperated (though it was a bit cool on a couple evenings). We had large crowds every market … Vendors report increased sales from years past; though we do not do a shopper “count,” the number of people seemed to grow each week. New vendors added more local products … Peace Crops, Neah-Kah-Nie Catering, Malia’s Hawaiian Grill, Neah-Kah-Nie Gardens, Juice Box, Gold Notes Hummus, Nevor Oysters, and Willapa Hills Cheese, and offered more variety to market shoppers. Success stories abound, such as Chef Lee Vance, who "tested the waters" for her wonderful locally sourced meals beginning at the Manzanita Farmers Market, and then took over at the Nehalem River Inn. We had more business sponsors this year than ever before: we gave out 750 market bags

sponsored by Bonfire Beach Provisions, Unfurl, US Bank, Kayak Tillamook, Hal’s Emporium & General Store, Ocean Inn. For the final market, we gave away free cups sponsored by Manzanita Grocery & Deli filled with free ice cream provided by Tillamook County Creamery Association, or filled with free beer (yes, FREE beer) provided by Fort George Brewery. It was a wonderful way to thank our market shoppers, and it’s absolutely the most fun when folks came up to the market information booth during the final market with wide-eyed looks, saying, “I heard you are giving away free beer and free

ice cream … really?” Yes, really. “Wow! This is so cool!” It was a great way to end our seventh season. It will be an off-season of transition for the market – we said good-bye to board member Franz Hasslacher of Ekahni Books, as Franz and Sherry relocate to Arizona; and one of our original board members, Craig Mackie, after seven years is retiring from the market board. Craig is one of our hardest working board members, taking on the “icky” task of dealing with the market’s recycling and “zero-waste” initiatives: washing plates, bowls and silverware; schlepping bins of recycling to CARTM on Saturday, sorting and composting. With Craig’s diligence and guidance, the market this season generated less than a grocery sack of trash each market. We will welcome new board members Bob LaTorre and Josh Uthof, and evaluate the location, as there may be some issues with Fifth St. and the new development construction in 2013.

As autumn approaches, the bustle of the summer slows and farmers pause to look back at their busy season. The same can be said for the dedicated volunteers of the Tillamook Farmers' Market, who recently completed a dot survey of market attendees. Amy Reiersgaard, the newest member of the market board, was in charge of the survey. “We have always tracked attendance data at the market,” Amy explains, “but when we combine that with the survey results, we learn a lot. For instance, the Tillamook Farmers' Market attracts customers from all over. Half of the visitors to the market traveled from farther than 50 miles away, and 43% of them came to Tillamook specifically for the market. That's nearly 18,000 people who wouldn't be spending their weekend in Tillamook if not for us. They see our sponsors' names and logos on signage and handouts, and from the market trailer we direct visitors to local area businesses.” In addition to benefiting local area businesses, the Tillamook Farmers' Market has a direct, measurable impact on the economy of Tillamook. Jim Fanjoy, treasurer for the market, points out that the average market visitor spent $18.27 at the market this season. “Based on attendance figures, that works out to $44,680 on your average Saturday, or more than $700,000 over the course of the market season,” Jim continues. “That income goes straight to the vendors, most of whom are local businesses, so the money stays right here in Tillamook County.”

Note: This recipe is easy and nearly foolproof, but it does require a heavy, heatproof pan with a tight fitting lid (such as cast iron, or enameled cast iron), and some planning ahead, as you start the dough a day before you bake it.

3 cups bread flour (or all purpose flour) 2 teaspoons kosher salt (or 1 ½ teaspoons regular salt)

Stir dry ingredients in a bowl. Pour in water and stir until water is absorbed and dough forms a ball. Add a little more water if there is any dry

And the market is growing at a rate of about 15% per year. This is in a large part due to generous contributions received from the City of Tillamook, TLC Federal Credit Union, Oldies 105.5, and other donors. One example is the Tillamook PUD, who sponsored a grant for the big yellow market signs that can be seen on roadsides in Tillamook every Saturday during the summer. The signs work; 31% of visitors surveyed said they found the market because of the signage. Individuals can make a difference, too. Becoming a Friend of the Market helps pay for incidental costs like printing, advertising, and trash serv-

ice. But one of the greatest donations an individual can make is their time. “Next year, we will be starting our Market Auxiliary program,” says John Lee, chairman of the market. “This program is a fun way for people to get involved in the market and the local community, working together to set up the market, as well as meeting in the offseason to build, maintain, and improve the equipment.” Auxiliary volunteers commit to four to six days per season, and several prominent locals have expressed interest in the program, including Tillamook mayor Suzanne Weber. “We want this to be fun, a chance for people to see their friends and help their community at the same time,” John says, smiling. “It's social. Even though we work on a Saturday morning from 7:00-9:00 and again from 1:30-3:00 in the afternoon, most of us stay at the market all day, talking to friends and enjoying the weather.” For more information about the Tillamook Farmers' Market, the Market Auxiliary, or any of the market's programs, call market manager Lauren Karl at (503) 812-9326 or email:

Local dancer a finalist in online design competition

Oregon Coast Dance Center awarded the Cary Josi Dance Scholarship for 2012/2013 to William (Billy) Richardson. The scholarship is provided in memory of Cary Josi, beloved tap dancer, who studied at the Oregon Coast Dance Center. The scholarship is awarded to one local boy each year, for a full year's tuition for one dance class, and one recital costume. Applications were submitted to Chris Josi, Cary's son, for review. Chris chose William (Billy) Richardson as recipient for the 2012/2013 scholar-

Billy Richardson was awarded the Cary Josi Dance Scholarship ship. Billy has taken hip=hop workshops and has a natural gift of dance; Oregon Coast Dance Center “is glad to know that we can help grow his talent.”

ENGAGEMENT ABOVE: Rachael Bonato sees her creation modeled for the first time. LEFT: Rachael Bonato's costume, as created and photographed by Revolution Dancewear. BY SAMANTHA SWINDLER

In August, we told you about 13-year-old Rachael Bonato of Tillamook, whose hand-drawn dancer’s costume was in the final round of a national design competition. Now, after returning from a trip to Chicago to see her drawing become an actual prototype costume, Rachael needs your vote to win the grand prize – having her design available for purchase in an upcoming Revolution Dancewear catalog, and winning a collection of the costumes for her home dance studio, Oregon Coast Dance Center. Rachael’s costume – a fiery red, orange and gold creation with a tiered, sheer


skirt – was inspired by the “girl on fire” costume from the Hunger Games. Though competing with older teens and adults, Rachael’s design made it to the top three in Revolution Dancewear’s online “Design Your Dream” contest. Last month, Rachael and her mother, Allison Bonato, flew to Chicago to visit Revolution Dancewear, where the company’s team created a costume based on Rachael’s drawing and had it modeled and photographed professionally. “We had a really great time, and it was amazing to see Rachael's design really come to life,” said Allison. “We got to tour the Revolution Dancewear facilities and see where costumes were created, the warehouse, and

the offices of various staff including their ‘inspiration’ boards.’ Then we traveled to the studio where they photographed the models for their upcoming catalog and actually saw them in action, as well as the most exciting part, seeing Rachael's design modeled!” A two-man film crew followed the Bonatos in Chicago – something somewhat unnerving for the shy Rachael. “It took her pretty much from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. before she finally started opening up a little and answering questions,” Allison said. “I think this whole experience has been really really good for her, as it's helped her come out of her shell a little more,” she said. “I don't

think she enjoyed the coming out process, but she seems to be getting a little better at it.” You can go online and vote for Rachael’s design through 5 p.m. CST (3 p.m. here) Oct. 22. Vote at the Revolution Dancewear Facebook page: “(Rachael) is up against two competitors who are older than her and come from larger communities, so Rachael can really use all the help and support she can get,” Allison said.

The Nea-Rock’s first garden tour on Wednesday, September 19 was at Dru Preston’s, just east of Tillamook on Evergreen Drive. There was road work being done on Highway 6 with orange cones all along the left lane (coming from Tillamook driving east) and it was difficult to find Evergreen Drive towards the north after the overlook Freddie Graves came from east to west along Highway 6 and with flaggers motioning her on, she missed Evergreen Drive altogether. The ones who found their way to Dru’s were: Mikki Gruber, Sue Aalykke, Phyllis Holmes, Merl Wiine, Kattie Olson, Evelyn Wagner, Dottie Stone, Barbara Bennett. Dru met us in the wide driveway and tables and chairs were set up there for the potluck/picnic. We were lucky to have a windless day and sunshine to enjoy. We had a tasty lunch and a variety of beverages served. Dru and her husband have a lovely remodeled older home with large rooms.

identify edible and poisonous varieties, and discover the important role fungi play in forest health. We are welcome to bring samples of mushrooms for identification. Afterwards Dane will lead an optional short hike to search for and identify mushrooms. The Forest Center is located at 45500 Wilson River Highway, 22 miles east of Tillamook. If you’ve wanted to be included on the Tillamook County Quilt Trail (TCQT), the first such thing on the West Coast, now is your chance to get on the list.

Vining called the meeting to order and welcomed everyone back to the Bay City Booster Club fall meeting. There were no guests attending. Dallas Pfeiffer said grace and then Jack Scovel spoke briefly about a nation in trouble and introduced Bev Scovel, who sang “Time for all America to Pray." The potluck as always looked scrumptious but seeing as I was a tad bit late I had already eaten my lunch. Diane Griffin shared with us that her mother in law is going into the new Griffin House (no relation) senior living home opening this month on Alderbrook. It is operated by Sharon and Rod Griffin. We are definitely in need of more skilled nursing homes and welcome them to the community. Linda Vining reported on the hay rack project to raise money for Christmas decorations. Tickets were sold a various places for the small hay rack that was planted with spring and summer flowers. Mike and Sherry Smith of Garibaldi won the small hay rack and were very pleased to receive it. The large hayrack was sold outright. This project generated about $300.00 for the purchase of Christmas lights to be displayed in the area of the Bay City sign. The lights will be for the bushes and be solar as installing electricity to that area proved to be too costly. Jim and Kahne Henry will pursue find-

ing the lights at the best price. Members of the Bay City Beautification Committee are Linda Vining, Gail Reese, Gretchen Power, Diane Griffin, Marilyn Reynolds and Val Greenfield. Thank you to all of you for planting and maintaining the beautiful flowers throughout our community! Mark your calendars for the next Booster Club Meeting on Friday October 26th at 11:30 a.m. at the City Hall community room. Don’t forget the FREE guitar lessons taught by Dr. Ben Douglas on Thursday evenings, 7 p.m. in the basement of the Bay City Church. More thank-yous for the kind words of encouragement welcoming me back from Gloria Peterson of Idaville and Glyn Brice from (Portland) Rockaway Beach. Debby at the Bay City Library wants everyone to know that Storytime has been changed to Thursdays at 4:00 p.m. Make sure you drop in at the Bay City Church Rummage Sale this weekend! It is being held at the City Hall Community Room Thurs, Fri, and Saturday. Your donations help to support programs in the community as well as church expenses. Please come and help support this bi-yearly event! Now you know what I know! Have a great week and see you around town!

We toured their many beautiful, indoors and outdoors major beautifications. Lots of hard work went into it by Dru and her husband. We toured the yard and the workshop of Dru’s husband where they are painting and putting up shelves, etc. Dru hand brush painted all the ceilings. WOW! We then toured the garden area and everyone was given veggies to take home. I’ve been eating luscious salads ever since. Very generous of the Prestons. Thanks so much from all of us. The second Nea-Rock garden tour was to a subscription farm, just south of Tillamook. Lots of raised beds, flowers and edibles. Chickens too. Weekly food boxes are offered here at the Coyote Moon Farms. Next Nea-Rock Garden Club is Wednesday, October 17. We will eat lunch at “Kendra’s Kitchen,” Highway 101 North. Please be there by 11:30 a.m. and order as soon as you get there. Carpooling will be from PUD by 11:15 a.m. After lunch we will go on a “slough walk” at Hoquarten Slough Park just before the bridge on the right side of Highway 101 North. In November the Nea-Rock Garden Club will attend the Master Gardener Tea. More on this later. Thanks to Jane Dunn for the lasagna she brought over for James and me on Friday, September 28. What a thoughtful thing to do. It was very good and so appreciated that day

especially since I was canning Italian plums. Sure made it easier for me to have the lasagna ready to warm up and eat. It was good to see Jane and have a visit with her. I sure do miss those wonderful people at the Cape Meares Lighthouse. I have been a volunteer and involved with the Friends of Cape Meares for many years. It doesn’t seem right not to be at the lighthouse for lunch breaks anymore. And other duties have been turned over to Freddie Graves who will do a good job with all that it requires If you would like to know who the Acapella singing group was at the Cape Meares Community Center, they are the Sacred Harp singers from all over who get together regularly in different locations to sing. If you were lucky enough to live close by the Cape Meares Community Center to hear them or just stopping by to listen, you were in for a real treat. Betsy Jeronen organized the group again this year. I sat outside on a bench last year and enjoyed listening to the singing. Some of the songs I knew, but a few of the very old ones I had never heard before. I wasn’t able to get away this year but I could hear the singing from as far away as my back deck facing west. There were three tents set up on Jeronen’s north spare lot and some of the people stayed there overnight. Great weather for camping out. Sure hope they make this a yearly event and keep coming back.


SUGAR BROSIUS 503-653-1449 Editor’s note: Sugar’s fencepost was mistakenly omitted last week, so this week you’re getting a double dose of Sugar. We apologize to Sugar and all her loyal readers. Oct.3 While I'm writing this column from Rockaway Beach Tavern (I left my wi-fi device in Central Oregon by accident) I got an email from St. Mary's by the Sea asking for prayers for Dick Scott. He has had triple heart bypass and will be in recovery for two months. His daughter-in-law, Barbara Cronin, who happens to be waiting on us, tells us he returns home on he and his wife's anniversary, September 22nd. With his new repaired heart, he should be ready to go another 200,000 miles. "Chief Barry Mammano Fire Station." Our last city council meeting bestowed such an honor to a deserving man who has given over 50 years (since 1958) to our town in his selfless service. Without his knowledge, Barry's children, grandchildren and his friends in Rockaway Beach were waiting outside the door and entered just before Rich Riley made a motion to rename the fire station in his name. They received a unanimous vote followed by a standing ovation. There were lots of tears shed. Congratulations, Barry. And thank you for your service for all these years to our community. As you drive by, notice the fire hall has been repainted and renamed. It is looking so good. Our firemen are all volunteers and if you are thinking you would like to offer your time to our fire department, stop by. They could always use more good men and women. Marlene Monroe stopped by our house on her way through our town. She is my husband's godparent and it has been way too long since we'd visited. Many of you know Tom and Marlene Monroe. We lost Tom several years ago and soon after

Marlene moved to Spokane to be close to family. It has been a good move, but she still misses our little town. I get that. It is special, isn't it? A wonderful group of folks attended the Celebration of Life for Phyllis Baker. Linda Olson and Lynda Holmes and a small committee beautifully decorated the hall, with a mini-park on each table in memory of the Parks and Recreation Program that Phyllis began. There was so much food, there's no way anyone left hungry. I met several new people, but really enjoyed meeting Phyllis's brother Mel Farstad and his wife Janet of Pacific City. The family resemblance was amazing. They were as nice as could be. We're glad we met. Dixie Sexton also told me about the wonderful bench dedication at the library for Joanne Rogers. Drop by to see it! The Beach cleanup (dedicated to Delores Stover)/Tsunami drill made it a busy morning. We started early and got to the Lions Club before they opened. But they patiently opened up for us and gave us all the items we would need for the cleanup. They thank all the volunteers for their help. Then the drill began about 9:18. We heard an announcement telling us to evacuate. We quickly grabbed our kit and headed to the nearest site. The practices are important. It's good to know how much time it takes to get ready in the event of an emergency. "Be sure to taste your words before you spit them out." That's Rockaway Beach "Sugar Coated!" Oct.10 A huge thanks to Meals for Seniors! They had a recognition dinner for their volunteers, and Dale and I were invited. We met so many new people. I now have faces with names. Had a delightful time and I humbly thank you for including us in this occasion. Richard Patten at 117 Pacific, (you know, the cool 3 level multi-colored business), has had to discontinue his sale of fresh honey. He's developed an allergy to bees. My husband jokingly says he got rid of his hives because he got hives. But seriously, when one has a reaction to a bee sting that is more serious than a bump, it's a good idea to eliminate what caused the reaction. So, I think I saw one more jar of his honey for sale, and then it's gone. So run don't walk to Richards.

The Lions Club still has Bingo Friday and Saturday nights (till Thanksgiving) from 6-10. It's at the Lions Club building in the center of town. Now that fall has arrived what a fun distraction for those cool autumn nights. On a sad note, our friend, Art Nieman passed away the morning of September 24th. He and his wife have been our neighbors for many years. His wife April, and his sons Aaron and Andrew survive him. Aaron is living in Colorado and he and his wife have one son, Adam. Andrew is living in the Portland area and shares his life with his girlfriend Kelsey. They ask that donations be sent to Tillamook High's Basketball Program. It's almost that spooktacular time of year. Mark those calendars for The Parks & Rec Kids Halloween costume party. It will be Saturday, Oct. 27th from 6 to 7:30 in the Community Center. When Lynda Holm posted some pictures on the fire departments Facebook page she had a fellow from Germany who has published some books on fire trucks contact her. He is fascinated with them and travels world wide to photograph them. Well, he came to Rockaway Beach in September and Tom Martine and Lynda moved the trucks out for a series of pictures. Perhaps we will be in his next book? We'll keep you informed. The best part is the fire engines looked awesome against the newly painted fire station. (And he was quite impressed with them!) My friend Alberta Arnold is moving to the Gresham area. She's been a resident for many years, but it was time to make some changes in her life. She's found a lovely place to stay and is looking forward to her move. I wish you luck my friend. I will miss you. Phyllis Baker's son, Eric, came to town to get his mom's affairs in order so we had a really nice gathering at the Rockaway Beach Tavern. Phyllis endearingly called it "the office" so Jenna Cordi made sure we were all treated well for the occasion. She decorated the tables with Phyllis's favorite, Chardonnay, and bought a cake celebrating our dear friend with her "office" cohorts. It was truly a bittersweet occasion.

Page B4 - Tillamook, Ore., Wednesday, October 10, 2012 - Headlight Herald


I was asked recently to give a presentation about fall gardening in Tillamook County. I jumped at the chance as one of my favorite times of the year is autumn, and I love to clean up my gardens then. In the first place, it gives me an excuse to be outside on a lovely fall day. The weeds have pretty much been taken care of all summer, so what is left is the

fun stuff to do. The garden starts to look a little peaked this time of year anyway, so I feel like I am doing it a favor by cleaning it up a little. I find I work better from a list as I can prioritize the chores. I also can vary the tasks so I don’t get bored doing one thing all the time. Besides, it is so much fun to cross things off the list. I’ve even cheated to the point that I will write something down that I have already done just so I can have the satisfaction of crossing it off the list. I like to cut back my hosta before they start to get slimy from the cold weather. Once the leaves start to turn brown and droop, I grab a fistful and cut as close to the base as I can get. The browning leaves means they have started to go dormant and cutting remaining leaves won’t bother the plant at all. I do find it

interesting that my different varieties of hosta seem to die back at differing times. Some seem to be more tender, while others will hang on until a killing frost. Because the ground is so warm from the mild summer, it’s a good time to mulch perennials to keep that soil warmer longer. This is even true for some hardier vegetables. I try not to mulch with leaves from plants that have a tendency toward fungal diseases, though. No sense giving those fungi a warm bed for the winter. I also cut back the Euphorbia flowers to the ground. They will start blooming again in January and trimming them keeps them from getting too leggy. I am careful not to get the milky sap from a fresh cut on my skin, though, as it can be a real irritant. Long sleeves, long pants and gloves are necessary when dealing with

this relative of poinsettia. Cutting back any of the Hellebore leaves that look a little droopy is a good thing, too. These will also perk up and flower by the beginning of the year if not sooner. I will not bother the leaves that have sprouted from the base of the plant this summer, though, as they will protect the flowering stalks. Speaking of cutting things back, lady ferns really do become unattractive about this time of year. And I think this happened earlier this year because of the very dry summer and fall we have had. I cut these back to the ground, too, as they go dormant. Sword ferns are a different story. I leave the browning sword fronds on the plants until March to protect the tender crowns from cold weather. Of course, in nature the brown fronds fall off when they are

good and ready to do so, so we really don’t have to mess with sword ferns at all. But I prefer the look of the bright green fronds in the spring unhindered by the old ones. I will wash and clean patio furniture and garden art before I put them away for the winter. The wooden furniture seems to last longer if it doesn’t have to withstand the winter rains and wind. Same for the yard art. I also clean and disinfect my terra cotta pots with a 1 part bleach to 9 parts water solution. After rinsing them well, I lay them in the sun to slowly dry and then stack the pots in the potting shed with layers of newspaper between them. The plastic pots are less fussy about being out all winter, although if it gets very cold and stays that way, they may crack as well. The last thing I do in the fall

is sharpen and clean my tools before I store them. A little sandpaper along the edges of pruners, loppers, trowels and shovels will help keep them sharp in case I need to do some “emergency pruning” this winter. I also rub them down with a little vegetable oil on a paper towel before I store them for the winter. This will help keep the tools from rusting. I know you can use about any kinds of oil for this purpose, but I do hate the thought of putting motor oil in the ground when I start to dig with these tools. So I use the less invasive (to my mind) veggie oil. I also wash and dry all my garden gloves and toss the ones with holes at the tips of the fingers. After all that work, we deserve a nice break. Before we know it, those seed catalogs will be arriving in the mail!

sake of our roads, don’t put another road levy on the ballot. Growing up a long time ago in a land far away, my next-door neighbor was a woman called Floy. I SCHUBERT came into her house MOORE with her boy Bill and a hard crush on her girl Anne and sometimes ate dinner with them, two cans of some-

thing and fried meat. Everybody in the neighborhood knew everybody’s business. Floy was a loud-lunged yeller at neighbors. I never saw her in anything but a bathrobe, hair rollers, and a cigarette dangling. Though just a boy, I wondered too when a neighbor yelled at her, “Hey, Floy, you flat-footed floozy, where is your man?” “Wouldn’t spit on her if she was on fire,” she told me and winked, but I could see it hurt her. “Why don’t I have a man?” she asked her coffee cup. “It’s

cause I got half-grown kids.” I took a logic class once. One thing we studied was logical fallacies. My favorite logical fallacy is post hoc ergo propter hoc, meaning just because one thing follows another doesn’t mean it’s caused by it. Some years ago, I was in the checkout line of Chester’s Market in Pacific City. There was a woman ahead of me discussing an upcoming levy to construct a new high school. The woman was trying to explain to the checker, they’re telling me we have to have a new high school because the old building is

falling down. They say it isn’t safe. The woman was thoughtful for a bit and then said, that can’t be true. Why not? The checker asked, scanning the woman’s Cool Whip and Twinkies. The woman moved her fingertip from her chin and shook it at the checker. Because my kids are going to school there. According to the Library Director, a Tillamook man had taken his daughter regularly to Story Time at the library since she was in diapers. He had been petitioned to vote in favor of the new library levy, but I don’t support it, he said. If it doesn’t pass,

I won‘t waste any more time on politics. I’ll just take my daughter to Story Time at the library. When the hillsides above clear cuts slide into streams and block roads, the experts hired by the timber companies testify the slides are inevitable due to the steepness. We know we have the worst roads of any county in Oregon. Road levies keep appearing on the ballot and we keep voting them down. Every time this happens our roads get worse. The logic is obvious. Road levies cause potholes.

the worst thing that has happened is Portland water! Ger and I came home for the weekend and actually froze gallons of water to take back with us! I'm not sure what it is but Garibaldi has the best water hands down! It was good to come home for a few days, but it made it that much harder to leave again. The hardest part so far is just being away--thanks for all the cards and prayers, and oh yeah, thanks to the goofballs who are actually slipping money under the door in my absence. You make me laugh and that truly is the best medicine!”

A big thank you to the Roddy family, who donated Princess Stories: A Classic Illustrated Edition to the Garibaldi Library in celebration of Ann Roddy’s 5th birthday. This book is available for checkout at the Garibaldi Library.

Truly hope the weather will still be dry--not asking for sunshine, but at least dry for the annual Boy Scouts merit badge camp that will be in November now, not this next week. They will all be down at the Tillamook County Fair Grounds enjoying a campout; for some it will be their first time camping out, for others this is an annual event they look forward to. They are grateful to be able to experience this event with the Tillamook County Fair Board and the Tillamook Bay Community College allowing them to camp out in the fair ground parking area. This is a great opportunity for some scouts to earn their merit badges and experience a campout. Thank you to all the parents who volunteer and give up a good nights sleep to help these boys and young men progress in scouting.

NOTICE TO RESIDENTIAL TENANTS The property in which you are living is in foreclosure. A foreclosure sale is scheduled for January 4, 2013.

The following information applies to you only if you occupy and rent this property as a residential dwelling under a legitimate rental agreement. The information does not apply to you if you own this property or if you are not a residential tenant. If the foreclosure goes through, the business or individual who buys this property at the foreclosure sale has the right to require you to move out. The buyer must first give you an eviction notice in writing that specifies the date by which you must move out. The buyer may not give you this notice until after the foreclosure sale happens. If you do not leave before the moveout date, the buyer can have the sheriff remove you from the property after a court hearing. You will receive notice of the court hearing. FEDERAL LAW REQUIRES YOU TO BE NOTIFIED IF YOU ARE OCCUPYING AND RENTING THIS PROPERTY AS A RESIDENTIAL DWELLING UNDER A



Public Notices

Public Notices

LEGITIMATE RENTAL AGREEMENT, FEDERAL LAW REQUIRES THE BUYER TO GIVE YOU NOTICE IN WRITING A CERTAIN NUMBER OF DAYS BEFORE THE BUYER CAN REQUIRE YOU TO MOVE OUT. THE FEDERAL LAW THAT REQUIRES THE BUYER TO GIVE YOU THIS NOTICE IS EFFECTIVE UNTIL DECEMBER 12, 2012. Under federal law, the buyer must give you at least 90 days notice in writing before requiring you to move out. If you are renting this property under a fixed-term lease (for example, a six-month or one-year lease), you may stay until the end of your lease term. If the buyer wants to move in and use this property as the buyer\’92s primary residence, the buyer can give you written notice and require you to move out after 90 days, even if you have a fixed term lease with more than 90 days left. STATE LAW NOTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS IF THE FEDERAL LAW DOES NOT APPLY, STATE LAW STILL REQUIRES THE BUYER TO GIVE YOU NOTICE IN WRITING BEFORE REQUIRINGYOU TO MOVE OUT IF YOU ARE OCCUPYING AND RENTING THE PROPERTY AS A TENANT IN GOOD FAITH. EVEN IF THE FEDERAL LAW REQUIREMENT IS NO LONGER EFFECTIVE AFTER DECEMBER 31, 2012, THE REQUIREMENT UNDER STATE LAW STILL APPLIES TO YOUR SITUATION. Under state law, if you have a fixed-term lease (for example, a sixmonth or one-year lease), the buyer must give you at least 60 days notice in writing before requiring you to move out. If the buyer wants to move in and use this property as the buyer\’92s primary residence, the buyer can give you written notice and require you to move out after 30 days, even if you have a fixed-term lease with more than 30 days left. If you are renting under a month-to-month or week-to-week rental agreement, the buyer must give you at least 30 days\’92 notice in writing before requiring you to move out. IMPORTANT: For the buyer to be required to give you notice under state law, you must prove to the business or individual who is handling the foreclosure sale that you are occupying and renting

this property as a residential dwelling under a legitimate rental agreement. The name and address of the business or individual who is handling the foreclosure sale is shown below on this notice s the Successor Trustee. You must mail or deliver your proof not later than December 5, 2012 (30 days before the date first set for the foreclosure sale). Your proof must be in writing and should be a copy of your rental agreement or lease. If you do not have a written rental agreement or lease, you can provide other proof, such as receipts for rent you paid. ABOUT YOUR SECURITY DEPOSIT Under state law, you may apply your security deposit and any rent you paid in advance against the current rent you owe your landlord. To do this, you must notify your landlord in writing that you want to subtract the amount of your security deposit or prepaid rent from your rent payment. You may do this only for the rent you owe your current landlord. If you do this, you must do so before the foreclosure sale. The business or individual who buys this property at the foreclosure sale is not responsible to you for any depositor prepaid rent you paid to your landlord. ABOUT YOUR TENANCY AFTER THE FORECLOSURE SALE The business or individual who buys this property at the foreclosure sale may be willing to allow you to stay as a tenant instead of requiring you to move out; you should contact the buyer to discuss that possibility if you would like to stay. Under state law, if the buyer accepts rent from you, signs a new residential rental agreement with you or does not notify you in writing within 30 days after the date of the foreclosure sale that you must move out, the buyer becomes your new landlord and must maintain the property. Otherwise, the buyer is not your landlord and is not responsible for maintaining the property on your behalf and you must move out by the date the buyer specifies in a notice to you. YOU SHOULD CONTINUE TO PAY RENT TO YOUR LANDLORD UNTIL TIIE PROPERTY IS SOLD TO ANOTHER BUSINESS OR INDIVIDUAL OR UNTIL A COURT OR A LENDER TELLS YOU OTHERWISE. IF YOU DO NOT PAY RENT, YOU CAN BE EVICTED. AS EXPLAINED ABOVE, YOU MAY BE ABLE TO APPLY A DEPOSIT YOU MADE OR PREPAID RENT YOU PAID AGAINST YOUR CURRENT RENT OBLIGATION. BE SURE TO KEEP PROOF OF ANY PAYMENTS YOU MAKE AND ANY NOTICE YOU GIVE OR RECEIVE CONCERNING THE APPLICATION OF YOUR DEPOSIT OR YOUR PREPAID RENT. IT IS UNLAWFUL FOR ANY PERSON TO TRY TO FORCE YOU TO LEAVE YOUR HOME WITHOUT FIRST GOING TO COURT TO EVICT YOU. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS, YOU MAY WISH TO CONSULT A LAWYER. If you believe you need legal assistance with this matter, you may contact the Oregon State Bar Association, 16037 Upper Boones Ferry Road, Tigard, Oregon 97224, (503) 620-0222, toll-free in Oregon (800) 452-8260 and ask for lawyer referral service.

He was the first of his litter to figure out how to scale the â&#x20AC;&#x153;baby gateâ&#x20AC;? at his foster home and explore the rest of the house. He seemed to want to hang out with the bigger cats. An eye-catching orange and white, Mango is very playful, current with shots and will come with a certificate to have him neutered.
