State errs in discipline of Nestucca elementary


Water weighs on ballot BY JOE WRABEK

BAY CITY – With a bevy of statewide initiatives and referenda on the general election ballot, not much attention gets paid to local measures. There is a big one on the ballot in Tillamook County this November, though it affects relatively few people — just 345 voters. Measure 29-128 proposes to create the Pioneer Water District, stretching from Bay City to Juno Hill and out Latimer and Sollie Smith Roads. The area already has “city water,” from something called the “Kilchis Regional Water District” (KRWD) — not a district per se, but

BY NANCY WHITEHEAD For the Headlight Herald

Nestucca Valley Elementary School (NVES) is no longer a “Focus” school. When schools in the bottom 15 percent of Title I (high poverty) schools in the state were classified as “Focus” schools by the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) in July, NVES was identified. Now it turns out NVES and seven other schools statewide were misidentified, due to inaccurate data validation at the state level, the ODE said. The ODE uses a complicated formula of weighted values in student test scores, growth in those scores, and scores and growth for certain subgroups

more of a water wholesaler, that distributes water from Bay City’s wells to four little water “companies,” the Tillamook County Creamery Assn., and several dozen individual homes between Bay City and Tillamook. And to Bay City itself. The KRWD has no tax base; its board of directors, which meets once a year, consists of representatives from the little water “companies,” the Tillamook County Creamery Assn. (TCCA), and Bay City. The proposed Pioneer Water District would replace the Kilchis Regional Water District and three of the water “companies”— the Latimer Water Association, Northwoods, and the Juno Hill Water Company. It would sell water directly

to the people who are now those companies’ customers, as well as to the creamery and to the individuals who currently buy water from Bay City but are outside the city limits. Bay City itself would not be part of the Pioneer Water District. The new district would contract with Bay City, as specified in the measure, for meter reading, billing, maintenance, and the water testing required by the state. It’s complicated, admitted Bay City public works director Dave Pace. “There’s no way to totally simplify it.” And it has some people upset.

Lunsford guilty of ‘crime of passion’




A unanimous jury of his peers found Ronald Lunsford guilty of the murder of Christopher Quinn Brusman after almost 5 1/2 hours of deliberation. The jury found that Lunsford committed murder under conditions of “extreme emotional disturbance,” meaning that LUNSFORD the jury concurred with the defense that the murder was a “crime of passion.” Eleven of the 12 jurors found Lunsford not guilty of aggravated murder, the original charge, which carried with it the charge of burglary in the first-degree. In order to convict Lunsford of aggravated murder, the jury would have to have found Lunsford guilty of burglary in the first degree: that he entered and/or remained in Brusman's residence unlawfully and intentionally with the intention of committing a specific crime. The prosecution argued that Lunsford’s intention when he entered Brusman’s residence was to assault Helena Lunsford. The jury unanimously found Lunsford guilty of assault against Helena Zuniga (then Lunsford); 11 of 12 jurors found Lunsford not guilty of burglary. They also unanimously found him not guilty of menacing. The verdict of murder under the conditions of extreme emotional disturbance is the equivalent of manslaughter, a Measure 11 crime, which carries a mandatory sentence of 120 months, (10 years). Aggravated murder, had the jury convicted Lunsford of that charge, could have resulted in a sentence of life imprisonment. Lunsford’s sentencing is scheduled for 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18.

Last week the Headlight Herald misspelled Ron Zuercher's name. We also referred to Taylor McNutt as Taylor Winder in the NeahKah-Nie Homecoming court. We apologize for the errors.

he construction of the new Goodwill store being erected near the Wilson River Bridge along Hwy. 101 is making huge strides in the right direction. At this point the construction is going so smoothly there is no reason to believe the store won't open its doors in December as originally planned. “The progress in the last few weeks has been tremendous,” said onsite painting foreman Loren Canada. “Inside, the walls are getting ready to be sheetrocked. Outside we've taken it from clean concrete to finish coats, which you see now. The awning guys have come in and done a great job. They'll be done in a couple of days. “I see this place opening up in December like it's supposed to, right on track.” Canada has years of experience working construction and painting on other projects very similar to Tillamook's future Goodwill, and says some of the major reasons this particular project is going so well have to do with the people working on it. “This project is going a lot faster and smoother than most,” Canada said. “It's LCG Pence, the contractor down here we're working under is great.

tiful and we have no issues at all. “Usually when we have painters on the job, it sets a pace because the painters need work and all the other work usually takes longer so the painters end up without things to do. That always keeps things moving.”


Candidates face off in forum



The American Association of University Women (AAUW) and the Headlight Herald hosted a candidates’ forum Oct. 11 at Tillamook Bay Community College. House District 32 candidates Debbie Boone (incumbent since 2004), and challenger Jim Welsh (Constitution Party) attended; Perry Roll was unable to attend. Welsh alone among all the candidates came on strong and on the attack, challenging Boone’s representation of District 32 in the House, and blasting her for accepting campaign contributions from out of state. Welsh stated in his opening “we need to repeal laws, reduce taxes and get government out of our business.” Tillamook County commissioner candidates Bill Baertlein and Lisa Phipps attended, as did Tillamook County sheriff candidates, Andy Long and Bill Spidal. It was the first time Long and Spidal have met in person. The audience asked questions about Spidal’s claims in his ads, that if elected sheriff

David Gomberg (left, D) and Jerome Grant (R) are vying for the newly redistricted House District 10, serving south Tillamook County.

he will focus on ending “favoritism (which) allows pedophiles/rapists to plead guilty to felonies and get probation.” Spidal readily admitted that the sheriff doesn’t actually have the power to accomplish these goals; but, if elected, he would use his influence to address those issues.

Pallett resigns from '%4 2%!$9 &/2 &!,, council, Wing steps in 4),,!-//+ &/2$ )3 BY JOE WRABEK

ROCKAWAY BEACH – On Oct. 10, City Councilor Les Pallett resigned, the latest in a series of Rockaway city officials leaving office. Pallett submitted his resignation by e-mail prior to Wednesday night’s City Council meeting. Pallett had been a Rockaway Beach city councilor since June 15, 2011, when he was appointed to replace Jon Orloff, who resigned. Pallett did not give a reason for his resignation, Mayor Danell Boggs said. The remaining councilors — Tom Martine, Jack McClave, Rich Riley, and Bonnie Sedgemore — voted to accept Pallett’s resignation, and on Riley’s suggestion, then voted to appoint Mardi Wing to fill out the remainder of Pallett’s term, which runs just until the end of December. Wing had been a Rockaway Beach city councilor earlier, appointed in September 2011 and herself resigning in September 2012, after serving about a year. “Has anyone asked her?” councilor Jack McClave wanted to know. “It’s why I’m here,” Wing responded from the audience. Wing was sworn in by Riley, who is Rockaway’s municipal judge pro tem. The city council also heard a report from interim public works director Luke Shepard on why the City of Rockaway Beach has been failing water quality tests for the past 18 months. It’s THMs, Shepard told the council—trihalomethanes, which are a by-product of the water treatment process. THMs are produced when there’s organic material in the water

Mardi Wing is sworn in by Rich Riley.

(Rockaway’s water comes from Jetty Creek) and the water is chlorinated. “We care about THMs because the state and Feds decided consuming high levels of THMs for a long time was bad for you,” Shepard said. When the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently lowered the allowable amount of THMs in drinking water to 80 parts per billion, a lot of cities found themselves in violation—including Rockaway. HBH Engineers worked out an action plan to reduce THMs which the city has been following, Shepard told the council. “They recommended changes in how we operate, and physical changes to the water plant and distribution system,” Shepard said. Operational changes include flushing water mains frequently and keeping water levels in the city’s reservoirs lower so water “turns over” faster and doesn’t have time to produce THMs; physical changes recommended include


separate inflow and outflow lines to the city’s Third Ave. reservoir (presently, one pipe does both), and aeration (also at Third Ave.), again, to “turn over” the water faster. Funding for some of the physical improvements will be sought in next year’s budget, Shepard said. What the city is doing is working, Shepard said. “We have been able to reduce [THM] levels significantly,” he reported; the most recent tests, done the end of September, showed THM levels below the EPA’s new limit. “We hope to keep them low.” The council also voted (4-1, with McClave voting no) to cancel the regular second city council meeting of the month in November and December, to accommodate the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. “We just got off a summer season of one meeting a month,” McClave told his colleagues. “I think we should be here twice a month.”



‘Morning Star’ primed and painted BY JOSIAH DARR


For years, the classic boat named the “Morning Star” has been in front of the Tillamook Cheese Factory welcoming visitors from near and far. But due to the unyielding weather that graces the Oregon Coast, the Morning Star has taken a pounding in the elements. Fortunately, the the decision makers at the Cheese Factory know the importance of their iconic boat and have put forth the time and money to spruce it up and make sure it will continue to welcome visitors for years to come. “The Morning Star ship is the true icon of our co-op’s history and for the Tillamook brand today, so it’s important to us to preserve the historic replica we have on display outside of the Tillamook Cheese Factory,” said Tillamook Cheese Coporate Communications Manager Tory Harms. “The Morning Star generally undergoes routine maintenance each year toward the end of the summer to help keep it in top condition. “This year we decided to sand down all the paint so that the wood could be primed, giving it a more protective seal. Once it’s primed, it will be repainted as well. Our hope is that with a fresh coat of primer and paint, this important icon of our history will be preserved for many years to come.” Industrial Contractor Duncan & Bush have been called into work on the boat and they’re getting right into the project. “There was some dry rotted wood so we're going to replace all of that and repaint it,” said Site Supervisor Tim Bjorn, who's personally working on the Morning Star. “We’ve been working on it for a few weeks

going to be a full month before we’re done.”

The Beaver Grocery E L E CT SHERIFF and Deli back in business ANDY LONG BY MARY FAITH BELL

GOODWILL: Continued from Page A1 With the pace on the construction site there will continue to be new features happening daily to the building – quick enough that some locals might drive by on their way to work, and have the building look dramatically different on their way back home at the end of the day. “Two weeks from now the parapet cap will be up, all the concrete curb will be poured around, the drive-through will be done, the windows will be installed, the asphalt will be done, the lamp post will be up, that's how fast it happens,” Canada said. The new business is planned to open between the middle and end of December, but no official opening date has been established.


The Beaver Grocery and Deli has reopened with new owners.

klatches in the morning. There is a full service menu offering comfort foods such as biscuits and Janet’s homemade gravy for breakfast, fresh cinnamon rolls and doughnuts made daily, and a hamburger and fries cooked while you wait. Customers can call in an order -- still the same phone number -- and pick it up to go, or stay and eat at the deli and enjoy a beer or a glass of wine with their meal. There’s also a hot deli case, for people who need to grab something hot to go. The grocery side of the store looks

a little spare, but not for long; Branscun says they’re building up inventory gradually as the business makes a comeback. In the meantime, he’s tracking what people want, and what they’re buying, so that the store can serve the needs of the community. South County folks are saying that the Jeongs and the Branscuns have remade the store into what it used to be like twenty years ago, when locals met there and shared coffee and food and conversation and picked up some groceries. I stopped in at the Beaver Grocery

Proven Public Service

ming Paid for by the with committee to excitement. elect Andy Long I met Jeff Branscun and he told me how much he and Janet are enjoying the community and the store. “People have been so nice to us, they’re happy we’re here, and happy the store is open. We really appreciate the warm welcome, it’s made our move here an easy one.” This probably isn’t far from what you would have found at the Beaver Grocery and Deli twenty years ago; but come on in and check it out for yourself. The store is open 7 days a week, at 6 a.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. The store closes at 8 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The deli closes every night at 7 p.m., “although we’ll keep cooking as long as there are people standing here to order something to eat,” said Branscun.

OCT. 23 FORUM ON OCEAN ACIDITY FORUM: A public forum on Tuesday, Oct. 23, in Tillamook will explore the current and potential future impacts of two emerging phenomena along the Oregon coast – increasing ocean acidity and seasonal incidence of low-oxygen waters, or “hypoxia.” A series of speakers will present the latest research at the free community event, “Demystifying Coastal Hypoxia & Ocean Acidification,” which begins at 6:30 p.m. at Tillamook Bay Community College Room 214/215. A panel discussion will follow, focusing on what individuals, communities, government agencies and others can do to reduce and manage potential impacts ocean acidification and hypoxia, both globally and locally.

The event is particularly timely, organizers say, as the fishing industry, agencies and scientists are expressing increasing alarm at the trend of more acidic ocean waters that have less oxygen to support marine life. The effects already are being felt in Oregon, where acidic, low-oxygen seawater contributed to the death of a substantial fraction of the young oysters produced by the Whiskey Creek Shellfish Hatchery near Tillamook. Hosted by the Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans program led by Oregon State University, the forum will feature researchers from OSU, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, Whiskey Creek Shellfish Hatchery, and

the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. It is supported by Oregon Sea Grant. Speakers and panelists include Francis Chan and Jack Barth of OSU, who have documented and explained increasing hypoxia events off Oregon; Burke Hales and George Waldbusser of OSU, who have helped Whiskey Creek Shellfish Hatchery offset the effects of acidic and hypoxic water that had been killing juvenile oysters; Alan Barton, manager of the Whiskey Creek hatchery; Steve Rumrill, the head of ODFW’s shellfish program, Waldo Wakefield of NOAA, who studies how environmental factors like hypoxia influence fish abundance and distribution; and others.


BEAVER – The Beaver Grocery and Deli is open for business with new owners, new staff, a new menu and a new attitude. The aim of the store is to harken back to days of old, when the Beaver Grocery and Deli was a community gathering place, a local hub for coffee and conversation, news and a bite to eat. They’re well on their way to that goal. "The round table is back in session,“ said store manager Jeff Branscun. “Every morning when I get in there’s a group here to greet me, drinking coffee around the table and sharing the news.” Owners Hwoan Jeong and his wife also own the Rockaway Beach Market. They hired Jeff Branscun and his wife Janet to run the Beaver store. Janet worked for the Jeongs in their Rockaway Beach store for years. Jeff is the new grocery manager; Janet is the deli manager. The couple moved to Beaver from Nehalem; they’ve settled in to a home on Blaine Road near third bridge. Prior to reopening, the store got a new roof, new kitchen appliances, and updated bathrooms. The deli side of the store was remodeled and opened up: the old Post Office came out and a half wall came down; the result is a bright and inviting space full of tables and chairs, including the “round table,” for big groups and coffee

and Deli on a recent Sunday night at 7 p.m. in the first pouring rain of fall and the store was hopping with a steady stream of customers coming in out of the dark, ordering dinners in the deli, buying groceries, picking up food to go, and standing around shooting the bull. My son and I ordered burgers (they were excellent, by the way, cooked perfectly by one of the deli's two part-time staff), and while the burgers were cooking I talked with my neighbor Travis Daggett about his farm. Travis and his wife Heidi sold shares of produce from their C.S.A. for the first time this year; it went well, and they’ll do it again next year. They have butchered chickens for sale, and Travis, who does private contract logging, would like to pick up a horse logging job. He has some horses lined up to go to work, but he doesn’t want to bring them home until he has a job for them to do; otherwise, the cost of feeding them wouldn’t pencil out. Travis was picking up dinner to go for his family. I eavesdropped while I ate and Travis talked with someone else about the logging job he’s doing currently. A young dad came in with three rosy-cheeked small blonde kids who asked for corndogs and hamburgers, and then waited politely at a table for their food, remarkably well behaved even though I could feel them hum-

That may have been the only question the sheriff’s candidates agreed upon; Long stated unequivocally that the sheriff does not dictate sentencing guidelines, nor influence judges, unless a judge asks him to weigh in on a particular case. From the newly redistricted House District 10, David Gomberg (Democrat) and Jerome Grant (Republican) attended, as did Arnie Roblan (Democrat) candidate for State Senate District 5. Scott Roberts, Roblan’s (Republican) challenger, did not attend. For many voters in newly redistricted areas, this forum was the first opportunity to meet and hear Gomberg, Grant and Roblan, whose districts will appear on local ballots for the first time. Audience members provided the questions. Marie Miller of AAUW moderated. Approximately 100 people attended the forum, which was live streamed online by the Headlight Herald. You can watch the entire event recorded live at The forum is also playing on Charter Cable channel 4 at 1 p.m. Mondays, 3:30 p.m. Tuesdays, 7 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 10 p.m. Saturdays and 1 p.m. Sundays.

irst, I want to invite you to consider “stepping” into the opportunities at Tillamook Bay Community College. Here are a few that are coming up: • Become an Entrepreneur. The Tillamook Chamber with TBCC and Oregon State University are offering a five-week series to develop your “killer business plan.” It has just started on October 11 and will go through Nov. 8. Join in now by emailing Carla Lyman: • RSVP to the Mildred Davey Luncheon on Thursday Oct 18 at noon. This is a time to celebrate scholarships and students who have been sponsored by local scholarships. Email • Learn more about potential threats to our local coastal ecology. On Tuesday evening, Oct 23, from 6:30-8:30 pm, Oregon State University and the Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans, will present a seminar/public discussion on Ocean Acidification and Coastal Hypoxia at TBCC in Rooms 214/215. Recent studies have indicated an increase in ocean acidity in Netarts Bay, which has the potential of having a significant impact on the local oyster industry. More broadly, an increasing frequency of “dead zones” from coastal hypoxia has the potential for impacting fisheries along our entire coast. Please pre-register by calling 541-737-4202. • Plan now to register for winter term. Submit your Financial Aid and admissions application soon. Registration begins November 26 and Winter term begins January 7. There is always an opportunity to learn something new at TBCC. The TBCC Board met on October 1. The Board approved the budget process and guidelines for the 2013-2014-budget development. They also discussed the national and state conversation on ways to increase the number of students who are successful in completing their certificates and degrees in a timely manner. In November Board members will be attending the Oregon Community College association conference

with a wide range of topics and national speakers to assist Oregon community colleges in achieving this very goal: imConnie Green proving TBCC President student completion of certificates and degrees. Josh Wyner from the Aspen Institute will open the conference with “Exceptional Colleges: Culture, Leadership and Performance.” Dr. Walter Bumphus, AACC president, will talk about the 21st Century Initiative and how the elements in the report affect Oregon’s community colleges. Dr. Katie Hern will address the issue of accelerated developmental education. Each of these timely presentations aligns with areas the Board, college staff and faculty are discussing. How can TBCC improve student progression from term to term to accomplish student goals, as well as completion of certificates and degrees? TBCC and the other 16 community colleges are seriously reviewing how to improve the adult basic skills learning that occurs at each of the colleges. All of this intentional focus occurs in the context of Oregon’s community colleges – their faculty and staff – serving as the state’s “economic first-responders.” Over 380,000 Oregonians are enrolled at 17 community colleges around the state. By providing professional training and serving as an affordable bridge to a 4-year degree, Oregon’s community college system is a driver of business development and job creation needed to get Oregon’s economy moving again. TBCC continues to be committed to meet the local needs and respond to the state and national challenges that affect our community. As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me with input or questions at or 503-842-8222 ext. 1015.

It has been befuddling to me why the Washington D.C. press corps had such a strong dislike for Bush when he was president and a great love for Obama. I could not imagine it was Obama's preference for high fuel prices or the huge debt his administration created. It had to be something distasteful or annoying that bugged this press. The reason suddenly became so obvious it was like hiding in plain sight. When Bush would go on vacation he would hop on Air Force One and fly to Texas then drive to his ranch miles out on the prairie. The press that reports every move the president makes needs to stay as close as allowed to be sure they are the first to report any important activity. To accomplish their mission they rent motor homes or RVs and spend the duration in the outback camping. Not a favorite pastime with this group. Not so with Obama. They follow him to Hawaii, Florida, Martha's Vineyard on Cape Cod, sometimes to New York shopping with his wife staying in the best hotels dining in fancy restaurants, all on taxpayers' money and the press on company expense. This is living with the high rollers on somebody else's money; so the love-in goes on with more flattering and complementary articles to keep the good times rolling. The view from the press box is somewhat different than the action on the field. Ray Streeter Sand Lake

Happy Birthday, Irene I want to congratulate Irene Beeler on reaching her l00th birthday! What a great pioneer, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and example she has been for our farm community. It makes me proud to live in the same community. Many of us learned to milk cows, do farm chores and accept responsibility at a very young age. Very seldom did we get a day off. Our farm work brought a feeling of pride and satisfaction that came from working with our family. It seems to me we are now faced with many government rules, regulations, and interference. Many of our own children can’t work on farms, harvest farm crops, drive a tractor or even spend quality time with the family working on the farm. Our ancestors came to this country to work with capitalism, free enterprise, and freedom to work and enjoy our families. The coming election gives us a clear choice-more government control, restrictions, entitlements and socialism or a government that encourages hard work, free enterprise and the chance to succeed. Don’t let America get lazy! Bud Gienger Tillamook

United Way supports the community Please continue the Tillamook County tradition of neighbors helping neighbors by supporting the United Way Campaign currently in progress. Each year volunteers work to raise funds that support critically needed services provided to residents of Tillamook County by the United Way member agencies. This year your support is even more critical as local helping agencies continue to see greater need while experiencing reductions in the resources available to them. I expect that every one of us has either accessed a service provided by one of the United Way member agencies or knows people who have. The wide range of crisis, educational, emergency and basic need services offered by member agencies make our community a vibrant and healthy place to live; one where we are able to continue to care about and for one another. Each year more than 16,000 individuals/families are served by member agencies and each one of those families may actually be receiving a multitude of services. At the Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center we offer services to more than 1,000 families each year. A single family may receive dozens of services during the time we work together. The Resource Center provides a variety of services for victims of domestic and sexual violence that range from crisis intervention, peer counseling, information and referral, civil legal assistance, job training, shelter

and support. These services have been proven to save lives and assist people in creating violence free lives for themselves and their children. United Way funding makes it possible for us to continue to provide services by granting funding that supports our 24 hour crisis line and our emergency financial assistance fund that meets critical needs related to safety that cannot be met through other resources. We, along with other member agencies, rely on United Way to be able to meet community needs and United Way relies on your support. Please be a part of Living United and support your local United Way.

Scott Roberts for Senate Don’t blame the politicians, when we send the same people back to Salem and Washington DC expecting something different. We need to remember what John F. Kennedy said “ask not what country can do for you, but what you can do for your country”. These words do not speak of people who cannot take care of themselves. These words do not say we are nation of endless entitlements. John F. Kennedy was talking about people with pride who take care of themselves and are willing to give back to their community. He was speaking of a people that, provided with opportunity, will build and create. Scott Roberts wants us to have an opportunity for family wage jobs, with family wage jobs we can build and create strong communities. Scott understands the responsible use of our natural resources will generate family wage jobs. Scott understands the consequence of giving up portions of our oceans and the result to our fisherman and the importance of our point of view. Scott’s Challenger talks about the opportunity of wind energy on our ocean. Not understanding what the 30 to 50 foot storm swells will do to the structure or the disgrace to our ocean view and displacing our fishing industry. I’m supporting Scott Roberts for Oregon Senate, because Scott understands our needs. Charles J Hurliman Tillamook County Commissioner

NVS thanks the community Neskowin Valley School sends a big thank you to the community for its generous participation in last weekend’s 30th annual Harvest Festival. Our artisan vendors and our sponsor were invaluable to the festival, which is run by NVS parents to support the operating budget of the school. Scores of local businesses and individuals

donated goods to our Bakery Cafe and silent auction, and many people came to bid and enjoy the food, fellowship and children’s activities for a joyous day at NVS. We value and appreciate the community’s continuing support for our independent school. Congratulations to our parents for their extraordinary volunteer participation in the 30th annual Harvest Festival! We look forward to the 31st next fall! Julie Fiedler Head of School

I applaud Quinn for her courage To Quinn Pender, I applaud you, it took a lot of courage and honesty to write the letter to the Headlight Herald forum (“I did not ask to be born this way,” Oct. 1). You are so right, being born with F.A.S (fetal alcohol syndrome) is not a choice you made, but a choice your mother made while pregnant to drink. Your story touched my heart, as I have dealt with a lot of these issues with foster children and adopted children. Your words about surviving high school and all the torture that went with it touched me deeply. I know how rude and cruel children and yes, some adults can be. Many developmentally challenged children are children of alcoholics or drug addicts. These poor children are not able to overcome what has happened to them. The drug addict or drinkers, at least had a choice to take or not to take the first step to their addictions. I firmly believe after seeing more than one child in a family with these problems a women should not have a second chance to harm an innocent child. This is definitely child abuse! The other side of this problem is that these children often end up on SSW or SSI, which is a huge drain on these programs. This also is not their faults. Quinn, thank you for so eloquently expressing your thoughts. Maybe through your words people will stop and think before they speak or act out. Once again I applaud you for your strength and courage to stand up for yourself. God bless you and I hope others were as moved by your letter as I was. Lorana C. Roberts Tillamook

Baertlein best suited to move us forward As a former candidate for County Commissioner, I have had the chance to understand more about the two final candidates than I might have otherwise. To see how they view the future of our county, I have talked to and listened to both. I have spoken with many other individuals from all over the county that have had dealings with one or the other or both. What better way to gain insight as to how a person will lead? Of these two candidates, I feel Bill Baertlein to be that person which would best repre-

sent myself and others who have a similar philosophy as to how we should proceed to enhance our economic growth and protect our individual rights; to find the balance that will allow future generations to enjoy the quieter, country like lifestyle we all care so much about while looking for opportunities that will enhance that which we already have. Because of Bill’s family history in and understanding of Tillamook he is, in my opinion, best suited to move us forward. He has a connection to the people, the farmers, fishermen and timber industry that is long standing. He has a connection with those that have raised their families here and started businesses here. Bill understands priorities in spending and has a background that will benefit the county when working with budgets and funding areas of current necessity as well as preparing for the days to come. I hope you will join me in supporting Bill Baertlein by casting your vote for him in November. Jill Williams Tillamook

Phipps is the right person for the job I first met Lisa Phipps when she was the Coastal Resource Planner, Tillamook County Department of Community Development. I found Lisa to be proud working for Tillamook County, courteous, helpful and very informed about the rules and regulations. Some applicants learn that the plan that they envisioned to be approved by the department staff did not follow the county land use rules. No one likes being told no and some will blame the planner. As a member of our Pacific City Community Plan Advisory Committee, I found Lisa to be very helpful in suggesting changes to an application so it could be approved. The rules are in place for all. Oregon has always been in the forefront protecting our land use laws. Thank you, Lisa, for making Tillamook County a better place to live. I volunteered to be in Lisa’s booth at the Tillamook County Fair. Many stopped by to express their support for Lisa to be our County Commissioner. Those of you that did not have the time to stop by, give her a call, gather a few friends together and invite Lisa to meet with you. Ask your questions and listen to her, you will come away knowing Lisa is the right person for the job. County Commissioners work around the clock attending all the functions pertaining to the county, state and federal issues; plus all the non-profit organizations they support. This job is a commitment to the citizens of Tillamook County. Lisa Phipps is the candidate who will make that commitment as our Tillamook County Commissioner Ielean Cox-Rouse Pacific City

We have known Bill Baertlein since the 1980’s when he was the municipal auditor for the Netarts and Oceanside Water Districts. He continues to stay abreast of annual law changes and has been our personal CPA and financial advisor for years. We can’t say enough for his high level of expertise, knowledge of the law and integrity. He cares about the future of Tillamook County, he has a vested interest. We believe Bill Baertlein will, with his experience, help Tillamook County keep within budgets and plan budgets for the future, which would keep county employees working with known futures. He is accountable, and with his better fiscal management, the people of Tillamook County can plan their futures as well as future residents. Please join us in voting for Bill Baertlein for County Commissioner. John and Janet Stahl Netarts Bay

Vote no on the Pioneer Water District This measure has a number of flaws in it that need to be corrected before it is brought to the voters! There are a number of people on the eligible voter roster who shouldn’t be and there are a number of people that have been excluded from the roster, including my wife and myself. Renters get to vote, but the owners of rental property do not. The three districts involved comprise about 354 eligible voters listed on the roster. These users only use about 10-13 percent of the total usage of water sold by the Kilches Regional Water District. The Tillamook County Creamery Association uses 5255 percent and Bay City who has opted out of this consolidation uses the balance. So, If this measure passes Juno, Latimer and Northwoods water districts would be consolidated with the TCCA to form the Pioneer Water district. This may sound like a good thing until you look into the details. Just one of the concerns is that in addition to a monthly set fee for usage, there would be a permanent tax of $1 per $1,000 of property value. If passed, you will definitely be paying a lot more for your water. The TCCA is the only winner with this measure. These are just a few of the flaws in this measure that I have listed. It should not be passed untill all the flaws are corrected. Alan Leach Bay City

Efficiency in road repairs In an article in the Oct. 10, Headlight Herald, “County officials look into... road repair funding.,” Ms. Welch said she was forced to take a reactionary approach to fixing potholes. Well, on June 26 about 10:15 a.m. I started seeing what she meant on Sandlake Road north of Terra del Mar. Two men, a small truck and road patch. There were two holes almost side by side. They patched one of the holes and left the other one and four more in a 1/4 of a mile to the north. About every two weeks one more of holes would get patched. It’s October now and one hole is still there. Now to me this is a ridiculous way to get a job done. Are we giving them one bag of patch and telling them to make it last eight hours? Is it just plain incompetence or lack of supervision? Whatever it is, it’s 16 hours of pay with benefits for the two men, truck wear and tear and fuel for one day. But the job took four days and is not done - one hole left. Now to me, Ms. Welch should be replaced by someone who knows what is getting done with the money they have, and the south county supervisor should be put back on the end

of a shovel. I have seen this kind of waste from our road crews in south county several times and every time I see that they want more money. I see more than red. Ms. Welch, use the money and the employees you have more efficiently and you may not need as much money as you think to get the job done. Tom Alford Sandlake Rd.

Phipps has proven she can bring people together Two of the most rancorous and controversial issues our county ever faced were raging when Lisa Phipps moved to Tillamook county. The periodic review of the county ordinance regarding riparian setbacks and the Netarts Littoral Cell study were the hottest of political hot potatoes. They had destroyed careers and set neighbor against neighbor. Lisa was assigned responsibility for both committees as they worked to complete an advisory plan for the county. The committees were composed of stakeholders whose views, personalities and interests varied dramatically. Lisa became the point person for the county whenever there was a controversial landuse or planning issue, and in the years before the economic downturn, there were plenty. Communities county-wide became so mired in conflict that Citizen’s Planning Advisory Committees were created to bring communities together. Lisa had the bulk of the responsibility for these “CPACs.” Now, in the lead up to the November election, there’s a concerted attempt to portray her as rude and regressive. She’s nothing of the kind, as her work with the county and as mayor of Rockaway Beach has proved. A wide spectrum of Tillamook citizens who have worked with Lisa on advisory committees and CPACs will tell you that she has done a superior job of giving them the understanding of local ordinances, codes and state land-use law they needed to make good decisions and that she did an extraordinary job of maintaining the atmosphere of mutual respect necessary for a successful collaborative problem solving process. They will also tell you Lisa is very knowledgeable, consistently fair, and relentlessly committed to empowering and engaging citizens in the public process. Her performance as mayor of Rockaway Beach was another demonstration of Lisa’s skill in turning conflicts into focused, creative, productive processes where every voice can be heard. Lisa is thoughtful and kind and has been a consistent, dedicated contributor to our community for 15 years. Tillamook County needs her unique and extensive understanding of civic processes, her outstanding leadership skills, and her proven ability to bring people together. Vote for Lisa Phipps for County Commissioner, Position No. 1 on Nov. 6. Lenora Lawrence Oceanside

Support Measure 29-129 Voting yes on 29-129 will provide base funding for the Tillamook Soil and Water Conservation District. This will give the District the ability to leverage other funds to continue technical and financial services to all natural resource users in the County. The benefits will be shared by all landowners, from the single family home in the city to the rural residential properties throughout Tillamook County. I have been an elected Board of Director for the District for over 30 years and I’m asking you my constituents to join me and vote yes on Measure 29129. Bill Hagerty Cloverdale

Vote yes on 29-129 My fellow fishermen please join me in supporting measure 29-129. I know that the valuable work Ray Monroe and the Tillamook Soil and Water accomplish provides for improved habitat and increases downstream Salmonid migration survivability. This also helps for future harvest and conservation of our local fish populations. Vote yes on 29-129 to maintain support for our natural resources. Al Jensen Pacific City

Phipps helped my mother receive VA benefits My 91-year-old mother recently received retroactive Veteran’s benefits. She is the beneficiary of my father, who served for 3 1/2 years in WWII and died in 2010 at age 97. My family had been unsuccessfully attempting to retrieve those benefits for more than two years. In June, I had a conversation with Lisa Phipps about our failed attempts to receive VA funds. Lisa listened and understood how frustrated I was with this government agency. I described my repeated phone calls to the Department of Veterans Affairs Western Area Fiduciary Hub in Salt Lake City and the Regional Office in St. Paul, Minn. My calls were met with a polite “Yes ma’am, we see from her file number that there are retroactive funds.” I asked when we would receive them. I was told that they did not know. My weekly calendar included a note to me: “Call VA!” I found the Tillamook Veteran’s Administration Office tucked away in the midst of the construction on Third Street. The overworked agent in that office very kindly let me into the office without an appointment. She told me that I needed to follow through with the hub and regional calls, but that even if we did receive the funds, my mother’s insurance benefits would be cut off because she would have too much money in the bank. Sometimes government bureaucracies seem too overwhelming to breach. When I saw Lisa, I had no idea what to do next. Lisa said “I’ll see what I can do.” The next week, I received a call from Congressman Schrader’s


office. A week after that, I received a check from the Veteran’s Administration. My mother’s new wheelchair is now being custom fitted for her at North Coast Home Care, she is enjoying two days a week of enrichment activities at a day care facility and she will benefit from other handicap modifications. Lisa Phipps is my choice for County Commissioner. She has experience and knowledge of how government works and most importantly, she truly cares about constituents and how government can and should help them, not impede them.

What I like about Phipps

Don’t ‘promote’ Phipps

I’ve known Lisa Phipps since she first moved to Tillamook County, and now I’m voting for her to be our new County Commissioner. I like the fact that, after living and working in many other places, Lisa CHOSE to make her life here. She has refused job offers that would take her away from this place; she has made a lifetime committment to this county. I like the fact that she has a degree in environmental law. She knows the value of our traditional industries: logging, fishing & farming. With that background, she has the education and knowledge to protect and preserve those industries and knows how to make them sustainable, so they will continue to benefit our children and grandchildren for generations to

Normally I leave letters to the editor to my wife, and she's already made her position on the Baertlein/ Phipps race known. As an employer for more than 40 years of several hundred people, I would like to second the position my wife took on the possible election of Ms. Phipps. During the endless delays caused by Ms. Phipps with our permit, I was actually working out of the state and watched from the sidelines while my wife put up with her abuse. Ms. Phipps doesn’t seem to hold any one job in the public sector too long, which tells me she is part of the Peter Principle. Eventually they will be promoted beyond their ability. Elevating this woman to a

come. I like the fact that Lisa has worked at the Courthouse and was mayor of Rockaway Beach in the past. I worked for the Commissioners’ office, and I know, first hand, the long and difficult learning curve for new Commissioners. Lisa knows how the county is run; she knows how governmental budgets work; she supports the county employees; she will hit the ground running when she takes office. I like the fact that Lisa has connections with state and federal agencies and personnel, which will serve to benefit Tillamook County. I like the fact that Lisa is involved in many organizations and charitable activities, all with the goal of keeping Tillamook County a good place to live. I like the fact that Lisa knows and cares about people all over the county, north, south and central. I support Lisa for County Commissioner. I hope you will join me in voting for Lisa Phipps, for the County and for our shared future. Mary Wujcik Cloverdale

OBITUARIES Basil L. Edmunds Basil L. Edmunds, of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, passed away peacefully at home Sept. 28, 2012 at age 81. He was born Aug. 10, 1931, in Garibaldi to Mark and Leone Edmunds. A retired Navy Captain, he BASIL served our coun- EDMUNDS try for 30 years. Upon graduating from Oregon State College in 1953, his first Navy deployment was to Honolulu, Hawaii, where he fell in love with the islands and later fulfilled his dream of living “in paradise” with his college sweetheart, Sonia, whom he married in 1955. In April 1965, Basil assumed command of the Navy destroyer USS McGinty. In 1967, at his command, the McGinty won first place in the nation in the Annual Test of Operational Readiness. In 1978, Basil was the first Naval Reserve Officer to win the National Guard Exceptional Service Medal. In addition to his service in the Navy, he owned and operated Edmunds Fish & Crab Co. in Garibaldi, Oregon, and served as manager of the Port of Bay City for 22 years, where he was instrumental in obtaining federal funding for the construction of the Tillamook Bay South Jetty. He was an Economic Development Director for the State of Oregon for 12 years, a member of ROA, AUSN, MOAA, and served on the OSU Sea Grant Advisory Board, where he was granted the first Emeritus Award. He was a lifetime member of the Tillamook County Pioneer Association. He and his wife, Sonia, retired and moved to Kona in 1999. He was a member of the Big Island Ukulele Guild, enjoyed woodworking and building boats. At an early age he was building boats – starting with models and working up to his dream of a 60ft all wood fishing/pleasure boat on which he and Sonia enjoyed many trips to Alaska. At the time of his death, he and daughter Kathy, and her husband Bowie, were building a 22ft wooden Bartender boat. He was also in the process of making a concert ukulele for his wife. Basil will be remembered for his dry wit, sense of humor, and ability to tell a “great story” based on the many wonderful people he met, his travels, and adventures he experienced during his lifetime. He is survived by his wife,

Sonia Edmunds of KailuaKona; daughters, Sheryl (John) Cain of Hemet, CA, and Kathy Edmunds (Bowie Goodwin) of Kailua-Kona; one granddaughter, Caryn Cain of Hemet, CA; one sister, DelVonne Roberts of Scappoose, OR; and many cousins, nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews.

The spreading of his ashes in the Pacific Ocean will honor his life-long love of the sea. A reception will immediately follow.

State School Chief praises Tillamook after-school program Oregon Deputy State School Superintendent Rob Saxton was the keynote speaker at the Tillamook School District teacher in-service training on Oct. 9. In his address, Saxton praised the district for its willingness to make hard decisions to better serve needy students. “The adjustments you have made to your schedule, in order to provide additional learning opportunities for your disadvantaged students, can be looked at as a model in the state,” he said. “You have found a way to increase time without increasing costs and you can rest assured that as I travel around the state I’m going to be talking to others about what you are doing in Tillamook.” Saxton also said it’s important to address the learning gap between the white and minority students. “If we are to succeed as a state, we must address the achievement gap, get all of our students to achieve at higher levels...” he said. Currently, almost 30-percent of students coming into the Tillamook District are students of color. This was the first time in recent memory that a State School Superintendent has visited Tillamook schools and spoken staff.

LOCAL DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS PARSE BALLOT MEASURES N o fewer than nine ballot measures will be voted on statewide in this November’s election. They range from amending the state constitution to stop referring to the Secretary of State as “he� (the current Secretary of State is a “she�), to allowing a non-Indian casino to be built (and specifically built in Wood Village), to letting the state keep the corporate income-tax “kicker� instead of refunding it. We wanted to provide a local — and personal — perspective. So we asked the chairs of the Tillamook County Democratic and Republican Central Committees, Lenore Lawrence (D) and Tom Donohue (R), if they would write a paragraph apiece on each of these measures. That’d give you the “take� on these measures from two knowledgeable, politically active people who are both locally wellknown, and likely to tackle the issues from differing (and often opposite) perspectives. Lawrence and Donohue both wanted the paper to emphasize that what you’re getting are their personal opinions only. Their respective party central committees have not voted on these, and do not have an official position. We are happy to say so. And we are very appreciative of their help.


This measure amends the Oregon Constitution by defining and increasing the powers of the Governor to declare emergencies in the State after a “Catastrophic Disaster� and how the Oregon Senate and the House will convene in the event of a variety of emergencies. Donohue: Once a “Catastrophic Disaster� is declared by the Governor, it allows him or her to appropriate monies from the General Fund, lottery funds, motor vehicle and fuel tax revenues & with approval of both Houses of the Legislature, funds that would otherwise be returned to the taxpayers (kicker refunds or tax returns) to deal with the disaster for a period up to 30 days. That period of time could be extended by a three-fifths vote of the members of each legislative house. This measure also authorizes both Houses of the Legislature to meet someplace besides Salem and allows a quorum of two-thirds of members able to attend (rather than two-thirds of total members) and permits attendance via electronic means. I have no problem with the latter section of this measure. I do have a problem with the new power extended to the Governor in the first section and so did the majority of those attending the ORP Central Committee meeting last Saturday. The ORP Central Committee consists of the Chairs, Vice Chairs and other delegates from each of the individual 36 Oregon counties. Nowhere in Measure 77 is there any authority for local cities or counties to respond to their own needs. All authority is vested in the Governor to act & to spend monies, basically as he/she sees fit with few checks and balances from the Legislature and none from the Judiciary. Thirty days is a long time to have unlimited access to the cookie jar with total central control of assets and no local control. I’m voting no on this measure. Lawrence: Yes. Oregon’s Constitution currently limits the Governor’s ability to immediately respond in emergency situations. Measure 77 changes language to allow emergency action without declaring martial law.


This measure also amends the Constitution. It is basically a housekeeping measure to upgrade or modernize the language in Article III Section 1 which describes the three sections of the state government (Executive, Legislative and Judicial) from “departments� to “branches.� It also corrects some spelling errors in Article VI, Section 2 of the original document and modernizes references to gender with indefinite gender wording.

Donohue: I have no problem with this measure. I’m voting yes. Lawrence: Yes. Measure 78 makes grammatical corrections and updates unclear language.


This measure amends the Constitution by prohibiting real estate transfer taxes, fees and other assessments except those operative on Dec. 31, 2009; Washington County already having a transfer tax in place. Donohue: Oregon has the 45th lowest home ownership rate and the 15th highest property tax rates in the nation. Once this measure becomes a Constitutional amendment, the Legislature can no longer even consider a real estate transfer tax and they’ve been trying for some time. The housing industry has been devastated in the current recession. We pay enough property taxes as it is. I vote no on this measure. Lawrence: Curiously, The National Association of Realtors have spent over $5 million to ban a practice that has been illegal in Oregon since 1989 (except for a one-tenth of a percent tax in one county which predated the1989 law). Several attempts to pass such legislation in Salem have failed decisively, yet the campaign attempts to convince voters that a transfer tax is imminent. What is the real intent of this bill and what obstacles could it pose to local communities as they struggle to meet local needs and keep taxes of individuals and small business down?

ments. Their casinos support their nation-states. They also have separate agreements with Oregon for their casino operations. The new casino proposed in Wood Village would compete with Oregon Lottery retailers. Normally I wouldn’t have a problem with that. However, the measure 83 authorizing the Wood Village casino would provide 25% of revenue to the state. Oregon Lottery retailers generate a considerably higher percentage of revenue for the state. Measure 82, which amends the Constitution to allow private casinos, would also open the door to more privately owned casinos in Oregon. I think the status quo is where we want to be. I’m voting no on both measures. Lawrence: No and No. We should not change Oregon's constitution to expand casino gambling. Our state has nothing to gain and much to lose if this measure passes.


This measure phases out existing taxes on large estates and all other taxes on intra-family property transfers in a 4 year period.

Donohue: An individual who has worked hard all of their life, saved their money (after income and other taxes) and wants to pass those assets on to their spouses or children after their death, should be able to without the state taxing the estate. An estate tax is simply double taxation and unfair. The federal government also has a “Death Tax.� A majority of states, however, have eliminated their estate taxes because it has been proven to create jobs and keeps families from breaking up or selling small businesses to pay the tax. In Tillamook County, one of our major business sectors is farming. It’s extremely difficult to keep a farm together and pass it on to family members if the principal owner passes away because of the estate tax. Because the state depends on approximately 1.5% of its General Fund budget on the estate tax, this measure phases out the tax over a 3 year period so as to not stress the budget process. The bottom line is that this measure will create jobs, keep family businesses together and eliminate Oregon’s current double taxation when someone dies. We should have created a meas-

ure like this, decades ago. I’m voting for it.

Lawrence: No. Oregon only taxes the part of an estate that exceeds $1 million. Passing this measure would eliminate at least an additional $2 million of state revenues, resulting in cuts in critical services or increase in taxes. If adjustments are needed to this tax policy they should be done through the legislative process. What goes unnoticed in Measure 84 is that it also bans taxes on transfer of property “or interest therein� from one family member to another. This would reduce state revenue by at least $120 million and likely much more. Again, what do we cut? Where do we raise replacement revenue?


This measure amends the Constitution to allocate the corporate income/excise “kicker� refund to K through 12 public education. Donohue: This is a sneaky measure. For starters, the individual and corporate “kicker� refund law was designed to limit the state Legislature’s bad spending habits! Now special interests want to spend that

money for K through 12. The devil is in the details, however. The precise language on the measure states â€œâ€Śâ€Ś.retained in the General Fund and used to provide additional funding for public education, kindergarten through twelfth grade.â€? The simple fact is that any monies in the General Fund can be allocated for anything the Legislature wants to allocate it for; K-12 funding or lets say, creating a new Cannabis Commission. I’m thinking to let’s just keep the “kickerâ€? law intact and vote against this money grab.

Lawrence: Yes. The recently published State Entrepreneurship Index shows that Oregon had the 6th highest score for entrepreneurship in the nation in 2011. That’s up from 2010 when we scored 10th. It turns out that requiring corporations and very wealthy individuals to pay more of their share of taxes to the state of Oregon (as the passage of measures 66 & 67 did) created an even better climate for small businesses. Measure 85 keeps the 70percent to 80-percent of corporate “kicker� funds that would go back to large, out-of -state corporations here in Oregon.



This measure would allow personal marijuana, hemp cultivation/use without a license. It would also create a government commission (Oregon Cannabis Commission) to regulate the cultivation and sale of marijuana in Commission stores. Donahue: You’ve got to be kidding! Just what we need, another government agency; more wasteful spending of our taxes. We’ve got enough problems with alcohol, so let’s make marijuana legal? Sheriff Long and the entire Oregon State Sheriff’s Association are against this measure and so am I. Lawrence: Yes. The profit motive for selling illegal drugs is so high that we've never been close to winning the costly war on drugs we have fought for decades. We need to remove that motive. The savings we spend trying to enforce drug laws and the taxes from sales could be put to use for other thing such as prevention and treatment programs.


This measure would prohibit commercial non-tribal fishing with gillnets in Oregon ‘inland waters’. Donohue: The Columbia River is the only Oregon ‘inland’ waterway where gillnetting is currently allowed. There are hundreds of jobs on the line if this measure passes. Washington gillnet fishermen are not affected by this Oregon measure. This is a no-brainer. I will vote no. Lawrence: No. Gov. Kitzhaber is working with stakeholders to address concerns about gillnetting. That is "the Oregon Way" of solving complex problems.

MEASURES 82 & 83

The first measure amends the Constitution allowing privately owned casinos in Oregon. The second measure authorizes a privately owned casino in the Wood Village area just east of Portland at the old greyhound race track. Both would have to pass before a casino could be built. Donohue: Currently, the Constitution states that private casinos are illegal. Native American tribes with reservations in Oregon are treated as separate nation-states by Oregon and the United States govern-

Oregon homeowners have been targeted with a new tax on the sale or transfer of real estate, a new tax that some have made a legislative priority.

(including economically disadvantaged students, those with limited English proficiency, or with disabilities, and members of underserved races/ethnicities) to determine which schools need extra help - and they goofed in this instance. Specifically, according to ODE spokesperson Crystal Greene, mistakes were made in setting the pace at which students with assessment scores below standard needed to progress in meeting the standards. Working with a new program of “Next Generation Accountability” that has the lofty goal of high school graduation for all Oregon students by the year 2025, with at least 40-percent of those graduates going on to earn four-year college degrees and 40-percent going for other post-secondary education or training (the state’s new “4040-20 Goal”), and a change in organization and staff at the state level, there are bound to be some missteps. The taking back of the “Focus” label is an affirmation for Nestucca Valley Elementary staff, who may breathe a well-earned sigh of relief.


Yes, it is good to get the validation for staff and retiring NVES principal Nick Gelbard – no one likes to leave when the chips are down. And Superintendent Kathryn Hedrick is proud of the rapid and professional response of NVES staff to the “Focus” designation. She is also determined to keep momentum and urgency in the district’s push for high achievement for all its students; there is room for improvement. She wouldn’t mind keeping the promised extra state money and help either. At the October school board meeting Superintendent Hedrick commended all NVES staff for attending extra meetings, efficiently completing an Inventory of Indicators for the state by its “almost-impossible” September 30th due date, and remaining committed to high achievement by all Nestucca students. Discussion followed of the new math text adoption at the elementary school with its emphasis on story problems, to meet the new, more rigorous Common Core Curriculum math standards, which are based on problem solving. The fact

that teachers like the new program and many teachers desire more training in its use are indicators of high teacher involvement and commitment. Tori Kirkpatrick of the junior/senior high school also noted that the higher level thinking skills of inference, analysis, and evaluation are being emphasized in the Literature sections of state assessments at all levels. So what does this mean for you as a parent helping your child with his/her homework? It means the ‘critical thinking‘ questions will now be required on math assignments. It means answers in all subjects must be in full sentences and longer ones in well-organized paragraphs (as soon as your child is able). Your child will be asked to compare and contrast (a skill in analysis), and to use learned skills to attack problems s/he has never seen before (a skill in application). It means reading at home is a must; it means that children of all grades and ages will have to work more and harder than they have in the past in order to graduate. Know and prepare for the new state high school graduation requirements.

It’s not just the idea of paying new taxes (the Pioneer Water District would have a permanent tax rate of $1.00 per $1,000, generating an expected $103,000 a year). “Glitches” in the maps left out some people who are on Bay City water, and included others who get their drinking water from their own private wells. Only the people living inside the convoluted boundaries of the proposed district will get to vote on its formation. “Some people that should be on the voter roster are not, including my wife and myself,” noted Al Leach, who lives on Doughty Rd. east of Bay City. “I don’t know how many people are supposed to be in this,” noted Susan Aalykke, who also lives on Doughty Rd. 345 voters are reportedly inside the boundaries, but apparently not all of them are supposed to be. Bay City’s Pace acknowledged the maps are flawed. “The engineers (SHN Engineers from Coos Bay) included everything inside the boundaries, not just the people getting Bay City water,” he said. “It evidently is too late” to make changes, he said. (The deadline for making any changes was September 6, county clerk Tassi O’Neill told the Headlight Herald.) “The inclusion of these noncustomers was inadvertent,” the Kilchis Regional Water District wrote voters in mid-October. “Should the Pioneer Water District be approved by the voters, the City of Bay City will help those who are not currently customers of the Kilchis Regional Water District, and those who do not purchase water directly from the City of Bay City, to opt out of the Pioneer Water District at no cost to the landowner, prior to any assessment of real property taxes,”

they said. The November 6 vote on formation of the new Pioneer Water District will also include election of its at-large 5-person Board of Directors. However, only two people had filed for seats on the new board by the filing deadline—Clarence (Bob) Favret and Clarence Boquist. Absent sufficient write-ins to get elected, the two named board members would probably appoint the remainder of the board, Pace suggested. A “town hall” meeting on the proposed district is scheduled for Thursday, October 18, at 7 p.m. in the Deli Retail Area at the Cheese Factory. (The Creamery Assn.’s Shawn Riersgaard is chair of the Kilchis Regional Water District, and the TCCA is the KRWD’s largest customer, using slightly more than 50% of the system’s water.) Riersgaard dismissed opponents’ claims that the formation of the new water district primarily benefits the creamery. “We lose our voice,” Riersgaard said. “We (the creamery) can’t even vote on this. We won’t be able to serve on the Board.” The creamery will pay more for water under the new district, he said. What the creamery wants is “cost-effective, safe, dependable water,” he said. Both Pace and Riersgaard said one of the biggest problems the new water district will solve is the lack of staff at the small water “companies” that buy water wholesale from the KRWD. “In many cases, the operations are coordinated by volunteers, and the job has got-

ten to be more than a volunteer can do,” Riersgaard said. The little water “companies” are the primary reason the KRWD was formed, back in 1980, Pace said; “Bay City developed wells and the other districts wanted to buy water.” However, they don’t use much water. The Latimer Water Assn. is responsible for 3.6% of KRWD’s water sales; Juno Water Co., 5%; Northwood, 7/10 of 1%. (The little Cole Creek Water District, which buys 8/10 of 1% of KRWD’s water, voted not to be part of the new Pioneer Water District.) And if the measure doesn’t pass? Juno, Latimer and Northwood all stay separate districts, Pace said. Ditto for the creamery--“For TCCA, nothing changes,” Riersgaard said. But the volunteers who have been doing the work in the little water companies “have said they’re done,” Riersgaard said. That work will have to be subcontracted out to some public or private entity. “Water rates will go up, but not because of anything we’ve done,” he said. Water rates will go up without volunteers manning the little water “companies,” Aalykke conceded, but forming the Pioneer Water District isn’t the only alternative. There are firms here in Tillamook County that provide water testing, billing

and even maintenance at a reasonable cost. Zwald Utilities in South Prairie, for instance, does this work for three water districts in Tillamook County, she said. “It would make more sense to first defeat this measure,” Aalykke said. “Then down the road the three small districts which rely on volunteers--Juno, Latimer and Northwood--could form their own water district.” Water could still be purchased from Bay City, she said. “I urge everyone to vote no on this flawed measure,” Leach said. “It is not well thought out and it had too many errors and there are too many unanswered questions and inconsistencies,” he said. “A corrected and better measure can be introduced at a later election. This time, hopefully, with more local public input.”

Bobcats and Loggers come down to the wire

Tillamook XC moving forward BY JOSIAH DARR Headlight Herald

Game winning pass goes astray to give Vernonia the 7-2 win over Nestucca. BY JOSIAH DARR

Headlight Herald Sports

The Nestucca Bobcats are riding a bit of a roller coaster this season. They started off the season red hot with two lopsided wins over Waldport and Corbett. Then the Bobcats came through and beat the Warrenton Warriors in a hard fought battle only to come back and get blown out by Knappa in their Northwest League opener. So, there wasn't much to go on if you had any hopes of predicting what was going to happen when the Vernonia Loggers came to Cloverdale to take on the Bobcats in Nestucca's homecoming game. Before the game even started, the Bobcats were behind the eight ball. Besides the Loggers being a big, physical team, Nestucca was missing a few of their key skill players for the game. Zach Welsh had his ankles rolled up on in practice and wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to play in the game. Neither could Cody Chance because of an ACL injury or Sam Whiteman due to a broken thumb. Fortunately, the Bobcats still had tailback Drace Moeller. Or did they? Moellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ankle got badly twisted on the second play of the game against Vernonia sidelining him almost immediately, further hurting the Bobcatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I liked the way we fought,â&#x20AC;? said Bobcat Coach Jeff Schiewe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Drace (Moeller) went down early I

was worried, but we used a whole bunch of different tailbacks in the game and they all had positive yardage.â&#x20AC;? Some of the Bobcats called upon in the clutch besides quarterback Max Kirkendall were Austin McKillip, Austin Woods, Lucas Leslie, Jade Downs and Ronny Moffett. All of them were a big part in the offense, but the Vernonia defense was stiff. Every time the Bobcats would get something going, the Loggers would tighten up and find a way to get the ball back. If the Loggers were unable to stop them, the Bobcats found ways to stop themselves with costly penalties. Penalties that cost the Bobcats all night. Nestucca couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get on the scoreboard in the first half despite plenty of opportunities. but their defense kept Vernonia off the board as well. Unfortunately, there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cat defense can do when the offense turned the ball over inside their own 5-yard line. PHOTO BY SHELLEYHARDING.ZENFOLIO.COM The Loggers turned that Max Kirkendall did everything he could with his feet and his arm against the turnover into seven points which the Bobcats almost got Loggers, but the Bobcats couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the touchdown they desperately needed. back at the end of the half. horrible rain to keep the score Kirkendall tossed about a 25about the size of the fight in With 50 seconds left in the down.

Tillamookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cross country team led by Head Coach Pat Zweifel is making tremendous strides in the right direction this season. In fact, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re moving forward so fast, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten the attention of Nike, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agreed to sponsor the Tillamook team in the near future. The details are still being worked out, but new Nike uniforms are looking very likely and a possible sponsorship of next years â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ultimook Race.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A few weeks ago we ran the â&#x20AC;&#x153;3 Course Raceâ&#x20AC;? and we made progress against the other league teams but still lost to Astoria at the 'Ultimook Race,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Zweifel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we beat Astoria at the Molalla race and lost to Sisters by 20 points. Then we only lost to Sisters by 1 point at the Woahink Lake Invitational.â&#x20AC;? All this improvement can easily be connected to Zweifelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aggressive coaching and how heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been doing everything in his power to drum up support and participation on the team. An example of his go-getter attitude other than turning his flower farm into one of the best cross country venues in the state is, Zweifel had fliers made and given to every kid in Tillamook High School. The fliers contained a list of 100 different reasons as to why kids should join Tillamook cross country. Some of them were serious reasons like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gets you in shapeâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Helps escape boredom.â&#x20AC;? Other reasons were humorous like â&#x20AC;&#x153;All runners go to Heavenâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because zombies wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait for you to catch your breath.â&#x20AC;?

Scappoose trounces Tillamook, 41-13 Headlight Herald Sports

Tillamook football had a tough row to hoe when they traveled to Scappoose for a rare Thursday night game on Oct. 11. The Indians were coming off of five straight wins in which they averaged 43 points per game while Tillamook had given up 69 points in their last two games against Astoria and Seaside. But, the Cheesemakers werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deterred. They showed up in Scappoose looking for a win, but came up well short. Scappooseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high powered offense came out of the gates ripping and rolling to the tune of 22 unanswered points in the first quarter. Tillamook did get a touchdown in each half of the football game, but they were never able to stop Scappoose from moving the ball. Althought, they did get some good defensive play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brock (Lorenzo) has been a leader for us all year,â&#x20AC;? said Tillamook Head Coach Matt Dickson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is very motivated to do well no matter what situation we might be in. Despite being down early in the game we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drop our heads. We kept fighting and Brock is a big part of that. He has a great attitude.â&#x20AC;?

Offensively, Tillamook wasn't too bad. Tillamook had 146 yards passing on the night and another 160 yards for the ground to equal a very respectable 306 total yards. A total that Dickson was happy with. Especially since he did see some good things from his offensive guys. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought that Matt Strang had a solid night,â&#x20AC;? Dickson explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is having confidence passing the ball and he did a great job keeping the defense on their toes by running with the ball too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also think that our offensive line is improving and working well as a group. Marcus Cheney, Billy Prince, Gabe Bryant, Jose Santiago, and Zack Motsinger did a solid job protecting Matt and opening holes for Jacob Wassmer.â&#x20AC;? Wassmer had 90 yards on 20 carries in the game while Jacob Fowler grabbed six passes for 94 yards. The Cheesemakers got a great draw for their Homecoming game next week. They have a winnable game when they host the 0-7 Yamhill-Carlton Tigers on Oct. 19. The game will start at 7 p.m.

The Neah-Kah-Nie Pirates and Tillamook's very good junior varsity team squared off on Oct. 11. Going into the game, Tillamookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jv team was 10-0 on the season and looking forward to the tough competition the Pirates were sure to bring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This volleyball team has had a stellar season,â&#x20AC;? said Tillamook jv volleyball coach Tabitha Shipman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our record is 12-0 overall and 9-0 in league and a lot of that has to do with the great leadership from our juniors Lexi Lourenzo and Macy Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a great season. I am so happy with the way all the girls play together and work hard.â&#x20AC;?


The battle between the two teams went to the wire with both teams playing great volleyball. The Pirates got the win in the first two games, 25-8 and 25-21. But Tillamook wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to be denied. They came back, winning the next two sets 27-25 and 25-18. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until the final set where the Pirates finally won the match with a 15-8 final. Unfortunately for the Pirates, they had to return to play a very good Faith Bible team on Oct. 13 and were beaten 3-1 falling to 3-6 overall in the Northwest League. The Pirates will try to get back on track when they travel to Dephian on Oct. 16 followed by hosting Oregon Episcopal on Oct. 18.

what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like getting beat by the best.â&#x20AC;? Tillamook cross country will continue its run towards a Cowapa League and eventually a state title on Oct. 20 when they host the all new â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pumpkin Relaysâ&#x20AC;? at Zweifelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hydrangea Ranch. The new race is a five by one mile relay race on the Oregon Coast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a fantastic team building exercise and a great way to sharpen up your kids prior to your district meet without the demands of racing a 5k,â&#x20AC;? Zweifel said.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cats get first League win The Nestucca Lady Bobcats were 0-6 in Northwest League play when they hosted the Riverdale Mavericks on Oct. 11. The Bobcats got strong play at the net from Emily Menefee and some great serving from Jasmine Boisa to take the first two games 25-12 and 25-10. Things were looking good going into the third set, but the Mavericks didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up and managed to get the win, 25-18. The fourth game could have been the game changer for the Bobcats. They fought hard and both teams made great saves to keep rallies going, but in the end it was the Mavericks who got the final point. The Mavericks won the match in extra volleyball, 26-24.

The stage was set for a massive Maverick comeback, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to be had. Not as long as the Bobcats have desire in their heart. The Bobcats dug deep and fought back against the shifted momentum to take the final set, 15-11, earning their first league win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made too many changes in the third game and lost all momentum,â&#x20AC;? said Bobcat Head Coach John Elder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We lost games three and four, but in game five we made plays when we had to. Trisha Hopkins had a great kill to end it.â&#x20AC;? The Lady â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cats will go for their second league win at home against Vernonia on Oct. 13 followed by a road game at Gaston starting at 7 p.m. on Oct. 16.

Also on the flier was the coaching philosophy and teams goals. The antics may be a little silly, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no question the Tillamook cross country team is getting better. So much better in fact, Zweifel wanted them to see how good theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to be if they want to win a state title. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took them to Siuslaw because I wanted them to see a state title team from last year who has almost all returners this season,â&#x20AC;? Zweifel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have a good shot at a state title again this season and I wanted my team to see

No decision yet on NCRD pool options BY SAMANTHA SWINDLER

NEHALEM – No decision on the future of the pool was made during Thursday night’s North County Recreation District Board meeting. Instead, board members heard a recap of a presentation on the options for renovating, rebuilding, or expanding the aging natatorium, and received public comment on those options. A special meeting has been set for 7 p.m. Oct. 17 for the board to make a decision on which – if any – of the options to pursue further. Of the 18 audience members present, 11 spoke in favor of building a new four- or sixlane pool (the majority favoring the six-lane option) and two supported renovating the existing pool. No one spoke in favor of a fourth option – doing nothing about the aging facility. The board also received 21 letters of comment (some of those same letter writers spoke as members of the audience). Of the letters, 14 supported a

six-lane pool, three supported a new pool of the same size (four lanes), three expressed concern over finances for any pool project, and one supported refurbishing the existing pool. Last week, the Board received preliminary numbers on three options for its aging community pool – renovate the existing pool for $2.4 million; build a new, steel-frame fourlane pool for $3.9 million; or expand with a new six-lane pool for $5.2 million. On Oct. 11, the Board received more numbers on the estimate operating costs for the three options. Upgrading the existing pool would reduce current operating costs by about 30 percent; building a new four-lane pool would lower costs by about 40 percent; and a new six-lane pool would lower them by about 13 percent. Those new numbers are slightly different from a week ago, when architect Carl Sherwood estimated that the remodel project would have the lowest operating costs.

Letter to the Voters of Tillamook County: From: William Spidal/Candidate; Tillamook County Sheriff, Nov. 6, 2012 Tillamook is a great community but when politics interferes with the criminal justice system, we must correct it.... 1. We have a crisis with domestic violence and we must focus on ending it.

2. False arrests where 25% of the people who go to trial are found not guilty.

3. Where favoritism allows

pedophiles/rapists to plead guilty to felonies and get probation...

We need to correct this and that’s why I’m asking for your vote for Tillamook County Sheriff!

Revolutionary War author to speak at the library Oct. 23 Bill Reynolds of Hebo began researching his family about thirty years ago; along the way he zeroed in on his seventh great-grandfather’s brother, Andrew Pickens. What began as a hobby resulted in his writing a book that was recently published by a national publisher. Reynolds will speak about his book “Andrew Pickens: South Carolina Patriot in the Revolutionary War” at the main branch of the Tillamook County Library at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23. The publisher, McFarland & Co., is a leading publisher of academic reference material. Reynolds’ book has the potential to become a primary source of information about the American Revolution. Dense with facts, it’s also totally readable, and the topic - both the man and his times - is fascinating. The book is available from the publisher and through Reynolds’ website,

Cross-country horse rider advocates for hungry children Master Gardeners’ annual Tea set for Nov. 10

“Doc” Mishler and his three horses — two for riding, and one a luggage carrier — were in Tillamook Tuesday, Oct. 9, heading south on Highway 101 down the Pacific Coast. They’re most recently from Ulster Park, N.Y. Mishler is a member of the Maple Ridge Community church group there. “I’ve been criss-crossing the country advocating for feeding the hungry children,” Mishler said, from Montana to California to Washington, D.C., to upstate New York, and back. Mishler doesn’t ask for donations, but does distribute tracts asking for help for the church group. The horses are “Chief Free Spirit,” “Justice,” a Tennessee walker, and “Charity,” an appaloosa. The latter two sired by Chief Free Spirit. Mishler says he’s spent several years on his “ride” already; how long will he keep going? “When will the Pope sell the Vatican and give the money to the poor?” he counters. “It’s not the way that’s lacking, it’s the will.”

The Tillamook County Master Gardener Association will host its 14th annual tea on Saturday, Nov. 10 at the Church of the Nazarene, 2611 Third Street, Tillamook. The event is from 1-3 p.m.. and serving will begin at 1:30 p.m. The tea will feature tea sandwiches, soup, desserts and, of course, tea and coffee. This year attendees will be served rather than going through a buffet line. A number of handmade items and other goodies will be raffled. The recipe book and two raffle tickets are included in the $10 admission price. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased at the tea. Individual ticket can be purchased and reservations for tables for 4 or 8 can be made by going to the Extension Office paying in advance. Tickets will also be sold at the door the day of the tea starting at 12:30 pm. There are a limited number of tickets available. The tea is one of the Master Gardeners' main fund raisers to support scholarships for local graduates, 4-H programs and awards, and many TCMGA projects in our community. For more information, contact the Tea chairperson, Andrea Goss, 503-812-8959 or the Tillamook County Extension office at 503-842-3433. TCMGA is a non-profit organization.
