September in Tillamook County likely ended with a record rainfall for the month, thanks to the tail end of a Japanese typhoon that rolled through here last weekend. That’s the prediction of Tillamook County emergency management director Gordon McCraw, who acknowledged, “It’s fairly early in the season to have this sort of storm.” The recent winds, rain and flooding were about what McCraw and the National TOTAL RAINFALL Weather Service Bay City – 6.07 inches in Portland had Tillamook – 9.02 inches anticipated.

It’s been 60 years since the final family moved away. What’s become of Bayocean? The town was created in 1906 on what now is called Bayocean Spit, a small stretch of land forming the west side of Tillamook Bay. Perry Reed’s family moved to Bayocean in 1944 when he was 6. His mother was the community’s postmistress. Now, Reed says, he can count on one hand the people still alive and living in Tillamook County who were raised in Bayocean. “It was really a good place to grow up,” he recalls. The once-

Father-daughter duo work to account for extinct Bayocean thriving community boasted hotels, motels, vacation rentals, a natatorium (a building containing a swimming pool), dance hall, and miles of paved roads with a dozen different businesses. At the corner of 12th and Bay Street, Reed and about 20 other youngsters would wait to catch the school bus. “It was the heart of the town,” he says. Not any longer. It’s all flat, open land. No houses. No buildings. Just a single sign sticking up out of the ground that reads “Bayocean Townsight 1906-1971.” Reed and his daughter, Sarah Macdonald, built and placed the

The sentencing for convicted felon Tom Martine of Rockaway Beach has been postponed until Nov. 22. Martine was convicted Sept. 4 of hindering prosecution of a felony and tampering with evidence, both involving the case of former Rockaway Beach police officer Benjamin Aaron Clark in 2012. Clark had been arrested in August 2011 on charges of using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct and encouraging child sex abuse. He pleaded guilty in March 2012 to a lesser

charge of hindering prosecution and tampering with physical evidence. Clark reportedly destroyed three electronic devices on which sexually explicit photos had been located. Martine later found an electronic device and rather than turn it in to the police as evidence, threw it away. The postponement of Martine’s sentencing, authorized by Tillamook County Circuit Judge Mari Garric Trevino on Sept. 27, was requested by Martine’s defense attorney, Thomas O’Neil. O’Neil had filed a motion

Tom Martine for a new trial the previous day. “I believe witnesses were

lied to,” O’Neill told the judge. “I don’t know what to do when the prosecutor just makes up facts. I need a transcript to know what parts of the testimony are tainted.” “I need to sentence him before we take up your motions,” the judge told O’Neil. “I have been in practice 31 years and never heard anything like this,” said prosecutor Josh Marquis. “The defense wants to relitigate the case.” O’Neil had alleged witness tampering and official misconduct, Marquis noted. “The hill one has to climb

to get a new trial is a high one,” he said. “I think we need to move ahead with sentencing today.” About 30 people, most of them Rockaway Beach residents, attended the hearing. They included some former colleagues of Martine’s on the Rockaway Beach City Council. Martine, who had been serving as a Rockaway Beach city councilor at the time of his convictin, resigned Sept. 11. Judge Trevino granted O’Neil’s request for a postponement, but said she would deal with both the

‘The Blade’ fillets on Garibaldi’s waterfront By Joe Wrabek

Tillamook Co-op 6x2

Garibaldi’s newest business sits on a dock built out over the water into the boat basin. The small building, a former charter boat office built entirely over the water, fronts on Mooring Basin Road. That’s where Kelly “the Blade” Barnett plies his services. On a nice day – and there have been plenty of those – you’ll find Barnett outside at his covered filleting table overlooking the busy boat basin and facing the mountains beyond. “Nobody else has an office like mine,” he said. “I cook crab, I fillet fish.” His spot is called … The Spot. 011112:Layout 1 10/1/13 11:59 AM Page It’s next to the popular Fisher-

men’s Korner restaurant. Two other (and larger) fish processors, Garibaldi Cannery and Ocean Gold Seafood, both also on the waterfront, are a short distance away. “I bought the dock and leased the building,” Barnett said. The building is owned by the Port of Garibaldi. “I needed a place to fillet my fish. Some people go to psychiatrists; I fillet fish.” Some of the traffic to The Spot is drive-by, some is word-of-mouth. Barnett had a number of filleting clients at the Garibaldi Cannery who followed him when he left to open The Spot. His business serves both sport and commercial fishermen. Some of his fish is canned, too. 1

New, higher flood insurance premiums went into effect for most Tillamook County properties Oct. 1. Despite a widespread hue and cry over the higher – sometimes, much higher – rates, “Nothing has changed,” Christine Shirley said. Shirley is the National Flood Insurance Program coordinator for the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development. Congress, preoccupied with a pending government shutdown Oct. 1, has not taken any action on the rates to date. • Homeowners who already had flood insurance as of July 6, 2012, will see a “very little hit,” Shirley said. • Owners of commercial property – again, who already had flood insurance – will see a 25 percent increase when their policies come up for renewal. • Those who own second homes or rental homes already have seen one increase, Shirley said. Their new rates went into effect Jan. 1. Insurance premiums on “pre-FIRM” buildings – those built before the federal government began issuing Flood Insurance Rate Maps in the 1970s – are supposed to rise every year until they reach “market rates.” The new rates, promulgated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which runs the flood insurance program, were mandated by the Biggert-Waters Act, passed by Congress in 2012. Biggert-Waters requires FEMA to repay any losses incurred by big insurance claims from Hurricane Katrina in 2005 (and bigger claims from Hurricane Sandy last year), and to make the flood insurance program selfsupporting. The National Flood Insurance Program has been offering flood insurance at subsidized rates since its inception in 1968. “You can benefit from getting an elevation certificate if you don’t already have one,” Shirley said. An elevation certificate, in which a surveyor identifies (for a fee) the precise elevation of a building on a property, can make the difference between a high and a low rate, she suggested. Elevation certificates will be required on all flood insurance policies. And new certificates will be required when new flood maps are released in 2015, even if a property already has one. “Surveyors will be inundated,” insurance agent Aaron Dunn told the Headlight Herald. “I’ve been rating a lot,” he said. “It’s a

mess.” While most homeowners are seeing just the “standard (25 percent) renewal charge,” those who bought a home or business after July 6, 2012, are having to pay the “market rate” for flood insurance. Dunn reported that one homeowner in Rockaway Beach was faced with a $27,500 flood insurance premium on an 1,100-squarefoot house. That annual premium is more than many people make as a mortgage payment, Dunn noted. “For anybody on a shoestring, I can see a lot of problems,” he said – only the rich will be able to afford to live on the beach. “I think we’ll see houses go on the market,” said Dunn, while at least some homeowners will simply walk away. Congressman Kurt Schrader (D), who represents Tillamook County, said Sept. 30 he would hold a meeting on flood insurance rates Oct. 21 from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Port of Tillamook Bay’s Officer’s Mess building. The new flood insurance rates will have been in effect for three weeks by the time Schrader holds his meeting. “The congressman has deep concerns about the continued implementation of reforms to the National Flood Insurance Program and what it means for folks back home, especially given FEMA’s inability to finish an affordability study legally mandated by Congress,” said Schrader staffer Cody Tucker. That absence of an affordability study – which is required by the BiggertWaters legislation but yet to be conducted by FEMA – was brought up during a recent congressional hearing in Washington, D.C., Shirley said. “They [FEMA] were asked, ‘If you can delay that part [the affordability study], why can’t you delay the rate increases?’” Shirley said. “They didn’t have a good answer.” The missing affordability study has prompted a lawsuit against FEMA by the State of Mississippi. Adding to the issue’s complexity, new Flood Insurance Rate Maps for all of Tillamook County – Manzanita, Nehalem, Wheeler, Rockaway, Garibaldi, Bay City, Tillamook and unincorporated Tillamook County -reportedly are being prepared by FEMA. But preliminary copies won’t be available until June 30, 2014, and won’t be effective until Dec. 16, 2015. It’s not known how many properties will be put into the flood zones – and required to get Elevation Certificates, and flood insurance policies at “market rates” – which had not been there previously.

The U.S. Coast Guard rescued a sailor Saturday when his sailboat, which was 14 miles off-shore of Tillamook, was battered by the weekend’s heavy winds and rain. The crew of an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter hoisted aboard the skipper of the 40-foot-long sailboat, The Rock, and flew him to Coast Guard Air Station Astoria. Coast Guard Sector Columbia River said the call for assistance came from Duane Jones, an Oak Harbor, Wash., resident and skipper of the sailboat. Jones said that with the onset of nightfall and closure of the Tillamook bar to all recreational boat traffic, he was asking to be rescued. “This is our first major storm of the fall and we want to make sure that all boaters are prepared for the weather,” said Petty Officer 1st Class William Whitford, an operations specialist at Sector Columbia River. “This guy did the right thing in letting us know that he was experiencing difficulties and then asking for help when things got beyond his

As weather permits, Air Station Astoria crews are planning a flight to locate the abandoned vessel. Any salvage will be the owner’s responsibility.

County still concerned about Netarts Bay over-clamming By Joe Wrabek

Tillamook County commissioners recently approved a letter to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission that posed additional questions about the possible over-clamming of Netarts Bay. County officials had received a Sept. 12 letter from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife asserting that cockles – the only clams allowed to be commercially harvested in Netarts Bay – were being harvested in a “sustainable manner.” ODFW’s letter was accompanied

by several pages of findings supporting that conclusion. The count’s most-recent letter was prepared by Commissioner Tim Josi. “We have no reason to dispute [the ODFW] findings,” the commissioners wrote, “but did receive a comment from a local Netarts resident who has observed [that] the size of cockles, recreationally harvested, have been reducing in size over time. Commissioner Josi, who also recreationally harvests cockles in Netarts Bay, concurred with this observation.” The county’s letter questioned whether the commercial harvest of cockles for crab bait was the high-

est and best use of the resource, and whether commercial harvesting limited the bay’s capacity for recreational harvesting. “We do wonder if recreational clam harvesting in Netarts Bay provides a far greater economic engine than that provided by commercial harvesting cockles for clam bait,” the letter said. “We don’t want to adversely impact crabbing,” Josi told his two fellow county commissioners, noting that crab is the highest-dollar fishery on the coast. “But on the surface, [commercial cockle harvesting] doesn’t seem appropriate.

“I was half-owner of the Garibaldi Cannery,” he said. “I sold it to buy this dock.” The cannery retained his “Blade’s Best” brand name, Barnett said. “I’ll have to think up something else.” The busiest season for the business is August and the early part of September, he said. “It might start in July, depending on the tuna run.” The Spot has been open seven days a week, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Come winter, “We’ll probably do five days, 10 to 6,” Barnett said. Barnett expects his winter business to be slower, although the fish are out there in Tillamook Bay and the ocean, he

appears to happen [during neutral years] is that storms come in early and strong, and after January or February they start to taper off. “Obviously, this was a good wake-up call for people. If you haven’t already done so, go ahead and start getting prepared.” McCraw encouraged local residents to fire up their generators to ensure they still work, fill up gas cans and update 72-hour emergency preparedness kit. If you don’t have a kit, go online to for helpful tips and suggestions what to put in your kit, he said. “Hurricane Sandy showed you cannot have enough batteries on hand,” said McCraw. “When the electricity is out for a prolonged period of time, you go through those batteries quickly.” He also encouraged people to keep their cell phones charged – don’t wait until the power starts flickering to charge your phone. And shut down any extra applications, such as wireless or Bluetooth settings, which drain your battery.

and minor rockslides, but nothing too serious, said Public Works director Liane Welch. “The damage looks a little worse in the [Willamette] Valley,” said McCraw. “But they’re just not used to the high winds and heavy rain we get… “I get asked all the time, ‘How come 40-mile-an-hour winds are no big deal to us on the coast?’ It’s because we already blew those trees down. “We’ve had consistently muchhigher winds than that, which means it takes some pretty strong winds to cause trees to go down. So fewer roads get blocked and fewer power outages happen.” McCraw said this early storm isn’t necessarily a prediction of how the rest of our winter will be. It’s a neutral year, he said, not driven by El Nino or La Nina waters, one similar to last year. That could make it an inactive storm season. Yet it takes only one storm to wreak major flooding and damage. “If we look back in our records,” said McCraw, “what

Guest Column


30 year farmer

Throughout the past month I have talked to both the state office and local division of ODFW about elk habits and the reasoning behind the night killing of the elk in our county. Their explanation of giving the kill permits at night is that the elk have become more nocturnal due to the hunting of them during the day. Not all counties utilize this kill permit in this manner. Each division of ODFW handles elk problems according to their needs or beliefs. Unlike other species, such as the wolf, there are few regulations for the local district to follow. Oregon Revised Statute 498.012 addresses the kill permit. There has been a very delicate balance between landowners and elk for many years. We have had mostly grass grown for green-chop and pasture and farmers near forest have always had problems with elk breaking down pasture fences and eating pasture intended for the cows. But, the corn is different. Not only do the elk feed on it they mash it down, and it seems that anyone with common sense would realize that you have to fence the corn to keep the elk out of it. Most of the kill permits are issued near other private lands with no regard to other people living in the area. There were five farmers issued permits in the Nestucca area. As adjacent property owners we were not notified that there could be bullets flying our way during the shooting of the elk. Many people have been surprised to hear shots after dark not knowing about the kill permit. The information that I have collected, as well as my personal experience over the last 30 years, tells me that elk generally feed in the early morning and through late

afternoon and night and rest during most daylight hours. ODFW seems to think that they can train the elk to become more active during daylight hours by killing them at night, even though they have had their current habits for thousands of years. Their theory is that over the past five years that we have had corn in Tillamook County the elks’ habits have changed and they have become more nocturnal. It is my opinion that putting candy in front of just about anybody is a temptation that is hard to resist any time of the day. ODFW informed me that hazing won’t work without killing because the elk need to see their dead brethren to be convinced that there is danger for them in an area. I wonder what college the elk went to. They live and survive with instincts, not education. I have seen what the elk do about a killed elk in their herd. They come and examine the body, leave and come back the next day to the same spot to feed. I talked to one farmer in the county that has installed a 7-foot fence as well as a ditch along his fenced area and he has had a 95 percent improvement concerning the elk invading his corn field. The losses incurred, according to the kill permit applications that have been issued for the Nestucca basin, varied from $12,000 to $30,000. There was no historical data or proof of damage loss collected by ODFW from the farmers applying for the permits. It seems that if there was that much damage it would more than pay for fencing. Corn is a high value crop and this is big business that we are supporting through our tax dollars. If this kill permit is offensive to you please contact your state representatives and let them know.

Readers’ Open Forum Support NCRD this election We are writing to support the upcoming vote to renew the 5-year local option levy that supports the operations and programs of the North Coast Recreation District in Nehalem. The renewal will not increase taxes since it will be at the same modest rate of 40 cents per $1,000 of assessed value as the current levy which is expiring. The levy is crucial to continue the current level of funding for high quality, affordable programs that support the community. There are programs focused on children and youth, including swimming lessons which are so important in an area surrounded by water. NCRD has a broad range of adult fitness classes, book clubs, hiking outings, trips to the valley for the arts and classes to keep us all engaged and learning. It is a good partner with other nonprofits making affordable space available for their programs and fund raisers.

The NCRD leadership and staff are excellent stewards of the public and private dollars that support the operations and programs. All of this work is done in aging facilities that require major repairs such as the recently replaced roof. NCRD contributes to the quality of life of the north coast and is important to attracting new residents to the area. We urge your readers to vote yes on the renewal of the local option levy. Allan and Madeline Olson Manzanita

Renew the tax levy for NCRD I am writing to urge voters in the North County Recreation District to renew NCRD’s local option tax in November. The amount of the tax will stay the same as it has been for the past five years. I support this renewal because I believe NCRD is a vital part of our community for many reasons. It gives all of us opportunities to

explore our individual interests in areas like art, culture and health (swimming, yoga, fitness). It provides programs for all ages from preschoolers to senior citizens. It offers people living with pain several different ways to help cope using the pool and through arthritis classes and yoga. It makes its spaces available to the community at large for meetings, fundraising events, art openings, basketball, dance, etc. Not only do we get to do something that increases our health or pleasure in life we have the opportunity to connect with other people in our community. I believe the ability to connect with others, whether new friends or old, is one of the most important aspects (if not the most important) of a healthy and happy society. It is definitely one of the main reasons I live here. NCRD gives us a place to do that, all throughout the year, in many different ways, with many different people. I would guess that most of us who live here have been to

Guest Column

NCRD for something. Since I am already paying for it, I won’t really feel a financial burden if the Local Option Tax passes. I would feel the negative impact of NCRD having to reduce services if it does not pass. Please help ensure that NCRD can continue its programs at the current level by voting yes on the local option tax renewal in November. Barbara McLaughlin Nehalem

NCRD benefits the entire community The North County Recreation District (NCRD) has been an essential part of north Tillamook County for years, but it is also important in the lives of many individual citizens in this area. With amazing courses such as aqua aerobics, zumba, yoga, drawing, Pilates and many others, the NCRD provides numerous choices for all tastes. The meeting rooms are available to

PLAN CAREFULLY FOR THE BIGGEST IMPACT Giving before year-end packs a double punch. First, you will be supporting the works and dreams of your charity of choice. Second, tax incentives may enable you to do more than you realized was possible, even improving your own financial position in the process. The availability of the income tax deduction helps a charitable person be even more charitable. HOW IT WORKS If you itemize deductions, a gift is deductible in the year you make it. Generally, the effect of the deduction is that the higher your income tax bracket, the more you will save in taxes. Many states also allow an income tax deduction for charitable gifts, so the total tax savings are often higher than those generated by the federal income tax deduction alone. If you have had to take the standard deduction in past years, giving more may increase your

deductions above the standard. This qualifies you for a greater tax benefit. WHAT SHOULD YOU GIVE? Gifts of Cash: Nothing is as simple and direct as giving cash. You can make an unrestricted donation, and we will use the gift to meet our greatest current need. Or you may designate gift for a specific purpose. A gift of cash may be deductible up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income, and gifts in excess of 50 percent may be carried over as deductions into the next five years. Gifts of Securities: Stocks or other investments that have grown in value and that you have owned longer than one year can become a substantial gift with a low net cost to you. You receive a charitable deduction for the donation, which is based on the stocks’ fair market value on the date of the gift. And, there is a bonus— you eliminate all federal capital gains tax that would otherwise be owed on a sale of the assets. Gifts of Real Estate: Perhaps your

first thought is that you do not own property near our location. The fact is almost any real estate—developed or undeveloped—is potentially a charitable gift. If you have owned your home or other real estate for a long time, it likely has significantly increased in value. Donate the property outright, place it in trust or retain the use of it for life. All of these methods will enable you to enjoy financial benefits while supporting our work. EFFECTIVELY TIMING YOUR GIFT If you are issuing a check to a charitable organization, the effective date of your contribution is the date it is hand-delivered or mailed. Stock that is held in electronic form can be transferred through your broker to an account in the charitable organization’s name. The value and date of the gift are determined by the date of the transfer, which is generally the date the securities are received in our account. The actual date of a gift of real estate is the date you deliver the signed deed.

LETTERS: many community groups, a valuable service to all. The adult activities have provided trips, speeches, discussion groups. Worthwhile benefits have been provided to the youth in our area through the youth center and new discoveries, not to mention the opportunities to learn how to swim. We have been active in the Riverbend Players for years and through these theatrical productions we have met some of our best friends, as well as provided enjoyable entertainment to the community The NCRD is growing, with the number of patrons increasing 29 percent in the past four years and number of visits increasing by 12 percent in the same period! We must continue to provide continued support for this extremely valuable service to everyone in our community! Vote YES in November! Betsy and Brian McMahon Manzanita

Think of NCRD this election I am writing to encourage you to consider continuing the levy for the North Coast Recreation District. You have done a great job for the last four years and enabled the district to provide excellent programs for your fellow friends and neighbors helping to keep them healthy and living longer lives.  What a great asset you have in the recreation district! Bill and I have seen the dream come true we had 20 years ago of providing a place for all of our community to come, work out at the program of their choice and many, like me, have managed to keep ourselves out of wheel chairs, manage our homes and enjoy our beautiful bit of “heaven on earth.” Although Bill is gone now and I have moved elsewhere, I encourage you to keep this levy going.  It won’t cost you any more, but it will keep your community healthy and thriving. Geri Berg Manzanita  

Join me in voting yes

My wife and I moved to north Tillamook County three years ago after serving in the Peace Corps. Besides the friendly people and natural beauty of this area, we were taken by the surprising array of amenities available in such a small community, especially the North County Recreation District. There has been a lot of commotion lately regarding the vote to renew the local option tax, but rather than rehash many issues that are already being discussed, I thought I’d share my perspective as an architect. Local Option Tax money goes to pay NCRD’s operational costs. This includes things like salaries for employees, electricity, and so forth. But it also enable timber revenue to provide major maintenance for the buildings. We have a saying in construction- if you lose

Headlight Herald - Tillamook, Ore., Wednesday, October 2, 2013 - Page A5

Continued from Page A4 the roof, you’ll soon lose the building. It means that you must maintain structures, or else they will start to deteriorate. It’s the classic “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” As a community, we have a lot of value wrapped up in the facilities at NCRD. That’s your money sitting on that hill in Nehalem, and by passing the local option tax, we are enabling ongoing maintenance to ensure it’s properly cared for- things like fixing burst plumbing, upgrading door hardware to allow better handicap access, removing dryrot around leaky windows, and replacing deteriorated siding before the weather gets through. If we don’t pass this tax, those things will start slipping. And given enough time, the buildings will as well. Also know that this tax is not to be used for major projects and expansion, such the auditorium renovation or the much-discussed pool project. Those projects must be funded separately, from a combination of timber revenues, grants, and fundraising. All this aside, I would like to remind readers that the amount of tax we are talking about is 40 cents per $1,000 of property value. Not only does this place the majority of the burden on those most able to pay, but even if you own a quartermillion dollar house, that’s only $100 per year to keep NCRD operational. It’s quite a bargain, compared to the cost of supporting a pool, gym, community theatre, conference center, art gallery, or community center in any other place I’ve ever lived... and NCRD is all of these things at once! I hope you’ll vote yes, and join me in protecting this valuable community asset. James M Fanjoy Manzanita, Oregon

NCRD is all about the community Readers of my column in the North Coast Citizen probably notice that I’m all about community. Renewing the local option tax for NCRD at the same level is all about community. It doesn’t matter what avenue we each take in the use of this community resource. I’ve used most of them. What it comes down to is support for our community and the treasure that NCRD represents.  Please vote to renew this tax, not just for yourself, but also for our small villages in which we all grow. Gail Balden Manzanita

Support the Transient Lodging Tax I am not sure why any Tillamook County resident would not be in favor of this tax. It raises much needed money for our roads and other infrastructure. It is paid for by others. It is paid for by others! Those tourists who come through our towns to visit, using our roads and infrastructure are now going to help pay for it. It is paid for by others and we get to vote

for that! If you are concerned that the visitors will go to other counties, don’t be – every other coastal county in Oregon has a transient room tax. Join me and vote YES on Measure 29-133. Howard Goodman Pacific City

Proposed TLT will drive visitors away I’m all for getting tourists to contribute even more to building Tillamook County›s economy and especially the roads (re: the Transient Lodging Tax -TLT- on the November ballot). But at 10 percent, many will no longer be staying and spending money here at all. They’ll head to Lincoln City or Cannon Beach for greater amenities and lower TLTs. And the rental owners like ourselves, now putting money back into the local economy purchasing local goods and services will have less money to spend, because the tourists who do still come here will demand rate cuts and special deals to offset the much higher cost of renting here. Plus, less than 30 percent of the proceeds will be available for county roads, per state law, because administrative costs will consume some of that amount. So what do we get? A tax to bring more tourists that actually discourages tourism in our county. And diminishes the ability of local rental owners to contribute to growing the county’s economy. Putting in a TLT at 5 percent or less might be a supportable experiment. Mrs. S. Pierson Netarts

Thank you Habitat for Humanity Our lives were changed forever by Habitat for Humanity. They came and put on a new deck on our house so we wouldn’t fall through. Thanks to a wonderful sister friend who made the call and told them about our deck. The experience was mind boggling to say the least, and then went far beyond the call of helping us. It has been the most up lifting experience we have had in the past six years, after all my illness. Our yard was a mess and the youth and volunteers transformed our yard before our eyes. They worked so hard. We want to thank the Habitat staff, volunteers, Leonard Baeta and the youth for giving us a new lease on life, they have all brightened our world! We love you all!

Affordable Care Act skepticism Sure the Affordable Care Act doubled your premium and reduced your coverage but the trade-off is you only have to work part time now. That will allow more time to attend your IRS meetings. Curt Schonbrod Tillamook

Elks Veterans Leather program seeking donations Members of Tillamook Elks Lodge 1437 participate in the Veterans Leather Program. Hides, beef, deer, and elk are collected year round and can be dropped in the box located in the parking lot south of the lodge building. Last year nation wide the Elks collected and tanned more than 50,000 square feet of hides. That leather is turned into products that benefit our veterans. Crafting leather, craft kits and gloves for wheelchairbound veterans are sent to medical facilities for occupational and recreational therapy programs. This program benefits all veterans, including those from iraq and Afghanistan, making their lives a little bit better. Tillamook Elks Lodge 1437 would appreciate your hide donation to a very worth while program. Ken Lommen, PER Tillamook Elks 1437

State is wrong about clam harvest I must disagree with the state’s opinion regarding the over harvest of clams on Netarts Bay. I have clammed Netarts Bay for more than 30 years and there is a definite decrease in size and quantity of cockles. I have hardly missed a good low tide and really am upset that this beautiful pristine bay is being raped. We must protect our coast and bays for the next generations. Jim Nelson Tillamook resident since 1954

BALLOT: preciate the public services they enjoy in Tillamook County, and they expect to pay tax while they are here. They are used to paying even higher lodging taxes, generally in addition to sales taxes, at most places they visit. Most Tillamook County residents I have talked to also support ballot measure 29-133. Some support this tax measure simply because they (and all other residents of the county) will not have to pay it unless they spend a night in a local hotel, motel, RV park, campground, etc. Some support this measure simply because it taxes tourists who stay overnight in the county, forcing them to contribute something for the public services they enjoy in our county while they are here. Some support this measure because 30 percent of the proceeds, less costs of administration, are dedicated to county road maintenance, and will thereby support growth of our local economy which is dependent on local roads, and will also promote the safety and general welfare of our families and neighbors who use these roads daily to get to school, to shop, to visit the doctor, or to get their products to market. Some support this measure because 70 percent of the proceeds, as dictated by state law, must be spent on tourism promotion and/ or tourism related facilities, and will predictably increase geometrically the destination spending by visitors to our county, especially in the targeted shoulder seasons. And the Board of County Commissioners, through a clearly defined and transparent public process, will ultimately determine the annual allocation and investment of these funds. All of these reasons are valid and worthy, but for us there is something else that is even more important. If we can double destination spending by the end of the decade, only then nearing what our neighboring counties to the north and the south enjoy today, the

Continued from Page A4 economic impact on our county’s economy will be in the range of 1 billion dollars per year as these new dollars cycle and recycle through our local businesses and services, touching virtually every aspect of our local economy. For us, increasing tourism is not the goal. Improved economics and the resulting benefit to all county businesses and residents is the goal. Over 50 percent of our grade school children in Tillamook County are on some form of federal lunch support. Some schools and districts within the county are significantly higher. As a county, we are falling short on the most basic of human responsibilities—to feed our children. We have a lot of work to do to get these kids educated, get their parents back to work (or working more hours) so they can better provide for them, and to make sure there are good opportunities for the kids here in our county when they get out of school. A growing tourism market, aside from growing jobs within the tourism industry, the retail sector, food service, recreation and entertainment, will increase the demand for more plumbers, more electricians, more construction workers, etc. And it will create more and more new entrepreneurial opportunities for community residents. Increased tourism is not the answer to our economic shortcomings—but it is an answer, and it is an important one with high potential. It can and should be a strong leg in our economic stool. This tourism tax proposal is about the future. It is about the kids. And it won’t cost any of us here a dime. Watch the mail for your ballot, and take the time to vote yes for a better economic future for Tillamook County. Vote Yes on ballot measure 29-133. Then the next time you greet a visitor to our county—give ‘em a warm smile—and tell ‘em “Thanks!”

Obituaries Helen Lovell

Helen Barton Lovell was born to Henry and Myrtle Barton on Dec. 18, 1928, in Sebastopol, Calif. and passed from this world to the next on Sept. 20, 2013. Helen Lovell At the age of 16, Helen met Melvin Lovell at a roller skating rink in California. Mel was in the Navy; and they continued their communication through correspondence. When she was 19, Helen went to visit Mel and his family in St. Mary’s, Georgia. Much to the surprise of all, Mel and Helen got married during that visit and were happily married for 58 years. They lived on the East Coast for several years and returned to Helen’s family’s chicken ranch. They moved to Tillamook in 1964 and both worked for Tillamook Implement Company. From there they became partners, and then owners. They dedicated themselves to the business for 36 years. She had a busy schedule with various church activities, card groups, and entertaining family and friends from far and near. Helen enjoyed flowers and birds; her gardens hosted various plants for a variety of our feathered friends. Then there was her zeal for travel. She saw most of our 50 states, went abroad to visit Australia, Canada, China, England, Greece, Jamaica, Italy, Mexico, Panama Canal and the Caribbean, Portugal, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland and Wales. She truly loved spending time with family and friends, and anybody else she met along the way! Her charm brought appeal, her style gave her awesome charisma, and her demeanor – whether loving or feisty – made us smile. Helen had a joyous zest for life, and will be missed by many people in many places. Helen was preceded in death by her husband Mel; their son Bart; parents Henry and Myrtle Barton and sister Ada Pickett. She is survived by her

daughter Mary Lovell; sister Jean Elie and husband Joe; grandchildren Corey, Brian and Tessa Lovell; great grandchildren; sister-in-law Nan Stores and husband Jim; brother-in-law Dennis Lovell and wife Mary Helen; sisterin-law Eunice Lovell, and nieces and nephews. A Memorial Service for Helen Lovell will be held on Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013, at 1 p.m., at St. John’s United Church of Christ, 602 Laurel Ave., Tillamook, OR 97141. If you would like to make a memorial donation in Helen’s memory, please make it to St. John’s Church or First Christian Church.

Affordable Care Act may address poverty level in Tillamook County By Sayde Moser

U.S. CENSUS DATA 2007-2011 Households in Tillamook County –10,892 Average household size – 2.24 people Median income – $41,400 (the state average is $49,850) People living below the poverty level – 17.6 percent (state average is 14.8 percent)

A “sea change” – a term coined by Shakespeare in “The Tempest” – is defined as a profound transformation caused by any agency. Call the Affordable Care Act, which took effect Oct. 1, a sea change. Jeff Hurliman of Jeff Hurliman & Tony Veltri Insurance Services in Tillamook said he has been told to throw everything he knows about insurance out the window. “I started in 1977,” said Hurliman, “and I’m just supposed to wipe my brain clean of the way it used to be, because this is a whole new deal.” In fact, this isn’t Hurliman’s first sea change. He remembers July 1, 1978, when Oregon mandated that everyone with a car needed automobile insurance. “This is my second rodeo,” he said. He survived that one (as did many of the drivers), so he said he’s certain people will survive this new change as well. Beginning Oct. 1, millions of American’s could sign up for new insurance options. In Oregon, consumers can shop for the new policies at Cover Oregon, the state’s health insurance marketplace. But they won’t need to make an actual choice until Jan. 1, 2014, with a grace period until March 2014. Those not signed up by that date will face a tax penalty. If your annual income is low enough, you’ll qualify for federal subsidies to pay for the new premium, which could be a good thing for Tillamook County. More than 17 percent of the population here is below the poverty level, which is 3 percentage points higher than the statewide average. Hurliman said it’s the rest of the county’s population who probably will face an increase in premiums. “The promotion of this thing looks pretty rosy,” he said, “but not everyone will be getting a better rate.” Add to that, you’ll find the application process through Cover Oregon a bit daunting, Hurliman said. The process fills about 30 pages. State Sen. Betsy Johnson agreed that the entire process has been painted too simplistically. “It’s going to be extremely complicated,” she said. “Some of the advertising going into this thing leaves

According to Cover Oregon, a 40-year-old making $41,400, with one spouse and one child, will pay a monthly premium of $232. PREMIUM BREAKDOWN: 31 percent paid by resident 69 percent paid by federal government tax credit (totaling $750 monthly premium) Estimated annual outof-pocket costs – $6,250 (Note: This is the maximum a person could pay for health-care services. Whether he or she reaches the maximum depends on the amount of health-care services used.) the impression that you just register and are automatically included in whatever your version of the Cadillac health-care plan is, and that may not be reality.” Hurliman said the majority of people likely to enroll through Cover Oregon will be those who can take advantage of the tax credits. For those who don’t qualify, he said, it will be less expensive to go through an insurance agent than be covered through Cover Oregon. Still, nothing is set in stone. “It’s a mystery, to be honest, about how this first year will go,” said Hurliman. “All we know is, it’s going to be different.” Hurliman said the only providers he represents are Regence Blue Cross and Blue Shield. He said all of the insurance providers will need to offer the same four basic coverage options, called the “metallic” plans (prior to Oct. 1, he offered nine options). All four plans must meet the standards set by the mandate. The only thing that will change is the premium rates.

MARTINE: sentencing and his request for a new trial on the same day. Trevino scheduled Martine’s sentencing and O’Neil’s request for a new trial for 1 p.m. Nov. 22.

O’Neil’s amended motion for a new trial is due Nov.1, she said, and Marquis’ “responsive pleadings” by Nov. 15. Meantime, Martine remains free on bail.

Nehalem’s Rainbow Lotus focusing on healing, spa work By Joe Wrabek

The Rainbow Lotus Spa and Wellness Center is still in downtown Nehalem, but no longer in a storefront. The business has moved upstairs, above what used to be the Art Happens gallery and the dog grooming shop next door and is now the Nehalem Beehive. Nor does it look like an East Indian art gallery. “Most of that stuff is at home,” owner Sedona Marie Torres said. “It was always difficult to do [both] services and retail,” she said. “It’s all about services now,” Torres added. “It’s where I wanted the business to be.” Rainbow Lotus offers a variety of facial, skin Photo by Joe Wrabek and body treatments, Rainbow Lotus, a spa and wellness center in Nehalem, is upstairs from the Nealong with a range of halem Beehive.

Commissioners declare ‘Domestic Violence Awareness Month’ By Joe Wrabek

Sporting purple-ribbon lapel pins, Tillamook’s three county commissioners voted Sept. 25 to designate October as “Domestic Violence Awareness Month.” A request to do so had come from the Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center in downtown Tillamook. A new round of volunteer training will begin Oct. 3,

the center’s Romy Carver told the commissioners. The Women’s Resource Center was founded by volunteers “and has grown immensely in 31 years,” she said. And on Oct. 7, the center will host an open house at 1902 Second St. from 4 to 6 p.m., Carver said. “We’d like the community to find out more about what we do.” At 5:30 that afternoon, a brief ceremony will dedicate the center’s free lending library to the late Deborah

Yund, a long-time volunteer (and later staff member) at the center. On Oct. 29, the resource center’s “In Her Shoes” forum at the Tillamook Library, from 5 to 7 p.m., “walks people through domestic violence survival,” Carver said. The next day at 1 p.m. will be the annual “Memorial Walk” from the Women’s Resource Center downtown to Carnahan Park, where a tree with two plaques bears the names of victims who did not

survive domestic violence. Both events are free. Carver added that the center also is having a cell phone drive. “We love having people’s old cell phones,” she said. Data, photos, and contact information are erased from the phones before they’re donated to clients. A working cell phone can dial 911 without having a phone company contract, Carver said, which provides an important lifeline for domestic violence victims.

In it to win it

The Lady mooks scored another win against Yamhil-Carlton last week.

THS speech student Sean Rumage returns from speech competition

THS volleyball snags first two league games Seaside was easy. Meagan Streeter’s team faced the Seagulls Sept. 24 at home, sweeping them 25-23, l27-25, 25-17. The Cheesemakers never let go of the upper hand, showing just what they’re made of. And they didn’t forget it when Yamhill-Carlton showed up to Tillamook High School on back-to-back losses to Banks and Astoria. Both teams were in a delicate spot, hoping to place themselves in the running for playoffs. And during all four rounds it was hard to tell which team would land on top. “It was definitely a good game,” Streeter said. “Both teams had similar skill levels and the energy was high on both sides.” You could almost taste how bad both teams wanted a victory. Tillamook won the first round in a mild mannered competition that at first made you wonder how seriously YC was going to take the game. But they came back with a vengeance and made the Lady Mooks work for it for a while anyway, but then the Mooks were able to capitalize on some silly mistakes made by their opponent. Still, fans on either side were kept guessing who would fall first.

Just like it did in Seaside, Tessa Streeter’s serving helped carry her team. Natalie Travis and Jordan Zweifel stepped up to the net as well. The Lady Mook’s camaraderie on the court and off kept the game entertaining to watch. Things got even more heated for the final round with both teams neck in neck. Natalie Travis had a strong streak serving and for a minute it didn’t seem that YC could return the ball. Travis delivered the winning serve as her fellow students chanted for YC to “start the buses.” “They’re a solid team,” Streeter said. “They play pretty decent together; against tough teams though not so much.” Those tough teams would be Banks and Astoria - the latter of which has walked all over its opponents thus far. The Lady Mooks have a second attempt to beat Banks Oct. 3. Last time they faced each other, the Cheesemakers took a loss. What did they learn? “They have to come out and play 100 percent right from the get go,” said Streeter. She added that they’ve also adjusted their mid blocking a bit, as Banks and Astoria both have really strong middle hitters.

gether high school students from around the world to study and learn about the organization. Last year, more than 300 students from the U.S. and Europe attended. Students were planning to give their presentations at the UN, Rumage said, but, “The building was under construction. Almost everywhere we went, memorials were under construction” – stemming from the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in late 2012. “We ended up speaking at the hotel,” he said. The students visited New York City, Philadelphia, Gettysburg, Niagara Falls, Washington, D.C., and Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Of the four students from Tillamook County who went to the UN event, said Tillamook IOOF president Brett Hurliman, “We sponsored one.” The student’s trip is paid for by the local Odd Fellows lodge. “The only requirement is [that the student] has to come back and give a presentation to us,” Hurliman said. Other Odd Fellows lodges that didn’t have any applicants helped sponsor the other three Tillamook County students, he said.

The Tillamook Odd Fellows lodge heard recently from Tillamook High School senior Sean Rumage, who had returned from a speech competition associated with the UN. Rumage was one of 28 students from Oregon, including four from Tillamook County, who went on the “United Nations Pilgrimage for Youth,” a 12- to 14-day trip to the East Coast organized by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. The trip culminated in a speech competition at the UN. Four of the seven finalists in the speech competition were from Oregon, Rumage said. First prize – a $1,000 scholarship – went to Sophia Solano of Nestucca High School. The United Nations Pilgrimage for Youth educational program was established by the Odd Fellows in 1949 (at the time, the UN was just 4 years old). Annually, the UN pilgrimage brings to-

Rockaway Beach resident secures national title in disc golf by Linda Werner

For the Headlight Herald

Nichola Landry of Rockaway Beach took first place at the recent United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship (USWDGC) held at Pier Park and Blue Lake Disc Golf Course in Portland during the tournament held Sept. 20-22. There were more than 100 women from the U.S. and Canada competing in various divisions.  Landry won the USWDGC Advanced Master Women’s division, beating eight other competitors by 11 strokes. She is the first deaf player to win a United States Disc Golf Championship. The USWDGC was first held at Rock Hill, South Carolina in 1999, then moved to Peoria, Illinois for several years.  Beginning in 2008, USWDGC can be held anywhere in United States as long as Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) guidelines are followed. This was the first time USWDGC was played in Oregon. Landry started to play disc golf for fun in 2000. Then she discovered the Oregon Deaf Disc Golf Association in 2006, and that the organization would host a National Deaf Disc Golf Championship (NDDGC) in Oregon the following year. That marked her decision to became a seri-

ous player and compete in several events.  She has won PDGC Advanced Master Women twice at the Beaver State Fling at Milo McIver State Park in Estacada, the NDDGC Advanced Master Women in Oregon (2007), Illinois (2009), Texas (2011), and NDDGC Advanced Women in Washington (2012). She has also been President of the Oregon Deaf Disc Golf Association since 2011 Landry is also involved with Chick Flick,

where women get together to play for fun every month. In August, Chick Flick hosts an annual clinic and tournament at Horning’s Hideout in North Plains.  Disc golf is similar to regular golf, but instead of using golf clubs and balls and aiming for a hole, disc golf players use golf discs (Frisbees®) and aim for a disc pole hole, a pole extending above the ground with a basket and chains where the disc lands. The object of the game is to

complete each hole in the fewest number of throws, starting from a tee area and finishing at the disc pole hole. A course can be nine or 18 disc pole holes long. Disc golf differs from regular golf in important ways. Disc golf courses use a wide variety of terrains, from heavily treed to hilly and gullied. Many times, land not suitable for other park activities or development is perfect terrain for a disc golf course. Disc golf has been called one of the best

lifetime fitness sports. It is easy to learn, a healthy activity for the whole family, and suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels. If you can throw a frisbee, and you like to have fun, you can play disc golf. Landry hopes to help develop a disc golf course at a Tillamook County park. There are now courses in Astoria, Newport, and Coos Bay. If anyone is interested in assisting Landry, contact her at n.landry5805@gmail. com.

Pirate football has got the strong backbone of a full coaching staff, return players like Senior Craig Grasseth, as well as a positive outlook on their growing program. Scott Ross, the Head Coach at Neah-Kah-Nie looks towards a fresh team for Friday night after the Pirate’s took a short break with no game scheduled last week. “Knappa has always been a well coached team and we look forward to playing them,” said Ross. “We’re hopeful to mark it down as a win, but we are still what you might call a second-year team. “We are working with the newer kids, along with the few return players that came out this year, on developing a stronger team for the future. It has been nice to have a full JV schedule, and for so many good young athletes to come out for the football program.” To help reinforce the program there is a staff of great assistant coaches. Dennis Woodward, Mike Sims, Greg Kelley, and George Young work with the 39 student athletes making up the JV and Varsity teams for NeahKah-Nie. You can come see the Pirates play at home on Friday Oct. 4 for the game Against Knappa. Kick off is at 7 p.m.

They all worked on transforming the overgrown yard and removing endless blackberries, weeding, pruning all the trees, planting new flower beds, helping to sort out the garage, pull out hidden scrap metal, carry and sort out the dry rotted lumber to the burn piles and load the Habitat ReStore Truck with cutting and all items not available to recycle.

Recently, Habitat for Humanity received a call from a neighbor of Barbara and Ches Mahlberg’s, seniors in Bay City regarding the condition of their deck. Upon inspection, they found that the deck was totally dry rotted and needed to be replaced. Habitat put out a call to some of their “RV Care A Vanner’s” who were on their way to help with construction and Leonard and Sylvia Baeta from California agreed to head the volunteer project. Daniel Phelps, Leancon Loving, Kevin Bond and Brandi Pierson joined Leonard in working on the deck project. John Banta of Pro Build contacted Exterior Wood Company and they donated all the pressure treated lumber for the project, Habitat for Humanity donated the rest of the materials needed. The Youth Group from First Lutheran of Richmond Beach, Wash. who come each year to lend their endless energy and enthusiasm to every project arrived in just the right time. Youth leaders Tamarah Lee, Niels Clark, Terry Baird with the youth Jessica Ong, Lauren Gaul, Frann Herr, Marcus Collins, Spencer McCustion not only worked on the site for three days but raised $324.55 in recycling cans and bottles to help pay for the materials. Habitat for Humanity staff, Josi Fool and Michael Bender from Prosser, Wash. also joined in. Josi and Michael came to Tillamook to put in their required junior and senior community service hours to help Habitat for Humanity for a month to help make a difference in other people’s lives. When Josi left to return home she said “This summer has blown me away and I have helped more people than I

Hoffman Center hosts Irish Singer Colleen Raney On Sunday, Oct. 13, the Hoffman Center in Manzanita will host Irish singer Colleen Raney with master button accordion player Johnny B. Connolly and guitar/bouzouki virtuoso Sean Earnest. Colleen is releasing her new album, “Here This is Home,” over a month-long tour of the U.S. from California to Maine, and she is looking forward to a brief respite on the Oregon coast. This Manzanita matinee performance begins at 3 p.m. Tickets cost $10 at the door. In the summer of 2013 Colleen traveled to Dublin, Ireland and spent five weeks collecting and recording songs with some of Ireland’s finest musicians. “Here This is Home” is as much about the time in Ireland as it is about time on the road. Produced by Aidan Brennan, engineered and mixed by Trevor Hutchinson, the album is collection of 11 songs from mostly the Irish tradition, with a few contributions from Scotland and England for good measure. In addition to producing, Aidan Brennan is credited with guitar, bouzouki, vocals, and songwriting and is joined by Trevor Hutchinson (bass), Johnny B. Connolly (button accordions), Steve Larkin (fiddles), Colm O’Caoimh (piano, harmonium), Dave Hingerty (drums, percussion). Dublin-born Johnny B. Connolly’s dexterity on the accordion earned him a place with the established Celtic ensemble Anam at the tender age of seventeen. In 1996 Johnny seized an opportunity to bring his skills to America and in 2001 he signed with Green Linnet Records and released two very wellreceived albums. In addition to three years on the road with the touring show Celtic Legends, Johnny has appeared on both festival

stages and in respected venues and is recognized among his peers as a stand out in traditional box playing. Bouzouki and guitar player Sean Earnest’s sensitive yet eclectic musical stylings have taken him far from his native central Pennsylvania. He is among the most in-demand Celtic traditional music accompanists today and can be heard on stages up and down both coasts of the United States and all points in between. Sean spends most of his time in New York and the greater Northeast, where he can be heard playing and recording with some of the top talents of the genre. Having cut his musical teeth in the vibrant session scenes of Baltimore and New York, Sean honed his guitar and bouzouki craft whilst studying abroad at the University of Limerick’s Irish World Academy of Music & Dance. Friendships forged across the length & breadth of Ireland lead to Sean’s highly successful 2009 tour with Irish supergroup Téada. For the last three years Sean has worked with the legendary McPeake family of Belfast in bringing their signature sound to American audiences. In the summer of 2011 he rejoined ‘McPeake’ for their third critically-acclaimed American summer tour. Also that year, Sean joined forces with one of the most exciting bands to come out of Scotland, the Paul McKenna Band, for two highly successful tours of the U.S. and Canada. Most recently Sean has been playing with his band, The Yanks, who have been touring nationally in support of their critically acclaimed debut album. The Hoffman Center is located at 594 Laneda Ave. in Manzanita. Doors open at 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 13. Full tour schedule can be found at www.colleenraney. com.

e had the opportunity to enjoy two open houses over the last few weeks. The first one was at the middle school; it was fun to see where some of the teachers had changed classrooms compared to last year. I had the privilege to have our 12-year-old show me and my daughter around before dad arrived; it was nice to have this almost one-on-one experience with him describing to me what he liked about school and what was most important for him to show me first. We also had the pleasure to accompany our daughter to her first open house at the Nehalem Elementary School. She had such a great time showing us where her classroom was, and where she did her work and her favorite book (‘What is in the Ocean’), then showing us how fast

You do need a permit, and you have to follow the usual rules: woody debris only (no garbage or plastics), water on, keep the burn pile away from anything that can catch fire, and don’t burn after dark or on windy days. The permits are free, and you get them at city hall. The new news is that you are also going to need a permit for a burn barrel. The permits for burn barrels are free, too, and also at city hall.

she could run in the gym, but the best part, she said, was the playground. I believe it was with almost all of the children, since when we got out there the play area was packed with kids. Thank you, Nehalem Elementary and Neah-KahNie Middle School for a nice evening. Have you heard about the Nehalem Elementary School Garden project? Partnering with the Neah-Kah-Nie School District, Food Roots, Master Gardeners and the Nehalem Bay Garden Club, this garden project will initiate and implement plans for a garden area at the Nehalem Elementary School. An easily accessible school garden will provide students with hands on experience in a garden setting that will help them to understand where food comes from, help them appreciate their natural world, provide a place where community members can interface with the school and create a pathway for middle school and high school students to mentor younger students. This project is to expand the classroom environment by creating an outdoor hands-on learning space and experience. The

garden will allow teachers to complement lessons in science, math, English and health. This space will also encourage student connection to the land and promote healthy eating habits. The description of the garden in the initial design which includes two garden boxes (one handicapped accessible) in a portion of a small grassy area on the NW edge of the Nehalem Elementary playground. A bench on the top edges of the garden boxes as well as a small bench set in the garden area will allow students to sit and listen or work in the garden. A fence will surround the garden and a small tool shed will be within the fence. If you have any questions email Tammi and Charlene at This sounds like a really great idea since every child in this community doesn’t have the opportunity to grow a garden, and with this project they will be able to see how and where food comes from and that they were a part of it from the beginning and see it grow. Happy Birthday this week to: Pamela Moreland of Nehalem, and Michael Noble Sr. of Banks.

write. The time has come that I need to focus on the priorities in my life - God, family, and friends. The years that I have spent, sharing my words with you have been a blessing… I was here when Y2K was a “ticking time clock” in 2000… I was here watching from my bed the surreal events of September 11, 2001… I was here to listen to the silent skies overhead; to share in the tears of that day and the sound of Jonathan Roberts solemnly playing “Taps” over the ocean…

The perceived antagonism between the villages is gone. We survived the “Great Divide” literally! I have cried with you, and laughed with you. I have mourned with you and celebrated new life with you… I have walked the beach to Oceanside with you, and have been blessed by the bounty of Netarts Bay with you… I love my beautiful little villages of Netarts and Oceanside! I have always believed, that if you only read the Quote beginning each column, you received a message. I know, that if my writing only touched one person, all of my efforts over the years have succeeded. I love all of my dedicated readers, and thank you for your years of patience and understanding. What other Fencepost writer could take “Gramternity” time or a “Summer break”! We are villages full of knowledgeable, talented and creative people. I pray that someone will take a “Leap of Faith” and continue writing the Netarts/Oceanside Fencepost!

commission. On the planning commission, you’d be filling out the balance of the term of Nick Stumpf, who resigned; his term runs till January 2016. On the tourism commission, you’d be filling the unexpired term of Kevin Greenwood, who also resigned; his term runs just until the end of December of this year. You do not need to be a resident of Garibaldi to be on the tourism commission, but you do need to be a city resident to serve on the planning commission. Interested? Get something in writing to John or Mary at City Hall. If you have questions, call 503/322-3327. Friday, Oct. 11 is the Garibaldi Library’s next round of one-hour, oneon-one computer classes, taught by reference librarian Kelsey Sutton. Call Norma at the library to register — 503-322-2100. If you miss this one — these classes have historically filled up fast—there will be another opportunity Nov. 22, the Friday before Thanksgiving. With respect to the NeahKah-Nie High School yearbooks the library wanted to digitize, I was asked whether the donors could get the yearbooks back after

the library was done scanning them. Head librarian Sara Charlton said they are supposed to come back, but having never worked with the company before, the library had better not guarantee people would get their yearbooks back. There are some scanners that require you to take apart a book in order to scan it (I have one of those), and others that don’t (I have one of those, too). This coming Saturday, Oct. 5 from 2 to 4 p.m., there will be live music at the Tillamook Main Library for the first time in months. I know because I was one of those invited to come play. And there will be cookies. And the following Saturday, Oct. 12, the Wave Steppers will be holding their last square dance of the year – with me as the caller. It’ll be my first time calling an entire square dance by myself – a “premiere” of sorts. (I’ve only been in training a couple of years.) In between square dance “tips,” line dance instructor Gwen Kiel will coach line dancing. 7 to 9:30 p.m. on the dance floor at Garibaldi City Hall. There will be refreshments, too.

haron Kesey hosted the Hebo Book Club to discuss “The Tiger” by John Valliant last Thursday evening at her Hebo home. Ginger Allen, Ginny Rasmussen, Pat Sears, and Nancy Whitehead were treated to lovely Russian snacks of blue ice chocolates, cornbread, fruit kabobs, Russian pine nuts and pickled vegetables in keeping with the Siberian tiger theme. The story revolved around a tiger turned man killer amid poaching in far eastern Russia. I’m sorry that company kept me at home. Tillamook Women’s Resource Center will name a lending library for the late Deb Yund, of Cloverdale during an open house scheduled from 4-6 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 7, at 1902 Second St. in Tillamook. Deborah who was passionate about reading and a lifelong learner and educator, put great effort into helping re-organize and structure the lending library. The ceremony is planned for 5:30; refreshments will be served and book donations are welcome.

he Cape Meares Community Association potluck scheduled for Sept. 28 was cancelled and the next potluck will be October 26, 2013. A work party was scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 25. There was yard work to do and debris to pick up and haul away. Work to putty up siding was to be done. The siding will have to be taken off and the new put on later on in 2014. Also two new board members need to be chosen. A new treasurer and secretary elect are needed. Fall just started Sept. 22 and there has been nothing but rain and wind since. The ocean is the wildest I have seen in months. But we should have some better weather soon the weathermen forcast. Sometimes our coast weather is the best this time of year. I plan to visit my son and daughter in law in Seaside later in October. Hope I am lucky enough to get a couple nice days then. I’m enjoying the fall colors along the Wilson River on my weekly trips to Forest Grove to visit with James. He is getting used to his home away from home at his new location at The Gardens Memory Loss Care Center. He has been there for six weeks now. Oct. 1, 2013 James and I will be married for 63 years.

The grant application and detailed information about TCCC are available on the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum web site, htm. For more information, contact any of the TCCC members listed on the web page. Applications are due Oct. 25, 2013. Volunteers are needed to collect samples for twice monthly water quality monitoring at select locations in the Nestucca and Little Nestucca River basins.  Water is collected at 10 locations two Wednesdays a month and delivered to Tillamook; the process requires a time commitment of about three hours per sampling run. Necessary equipment and a stipend for gas are provided by Tillamook Estuaries Partnership. Interested parties should contact Alex Sifford, 503-965-2200. Speaking of land stewardship, Fauna Fauth, of Beaver, reports that she has made more than 100 calls in her quest to end poaching in these parts. I appreciate her letting Fencepost readers know that Oregon State Police have a tip line for wildlife violations. We can report suspected poaching at 800-452-7888 or call Sargent Hoodenpyl locally at 503-842-2899.  Happy birthday this week to: Aneka Bentley, Ann Bodyfelt, Kristian Cabal, Glenda Gann, Jason Green, Olivia Hale, Kathy Holter, Peggy Howard, Kayla Love, Margie Noll, Earl Pullen, Angie Rice, Tristyn Harrison, and Sally Rissel.

den Club met for lunch Wednesday, September 18, 2013 at the Oysters Out West (Pacific Oysters) restaurant in Bay City at 11:30 a.m. Wanda Kinkade had to cancel the potluck at her house as her brother is critically ill with cancer. She would appreciate everyone to include her brother in your prayers. Since I was in Tillamook Wednesday, I was able to meet with the seven other Nea-Rock ladies. It was difficult to find something for me to order on the menu as I don’t eat shell fish. Everyone was eating seafood. I wasn’t hungry enough for a hamburger. If they had a muffin, I would have ordered that with tea. But no muffins. So then thought I would order a grilled Tillamook Cheese sandwich. It wasn’t on the menu. But if they have cheeseburgers they could have fixed me a grilled cheese sandwich. I should have asked but didn’t. I ended up with a salad minus the shrimp that it came with. Salad was good. It was a good choice. After lunch, we went to Sallly and Arlo Goodwins home to see their garden. We were fortunate to get to go there as they are selling their home and this was late notice. Sally thought the garden wasn’t up to par, but Arlo was in the background saying we were welcome to come, but nothing special would be done. The trees and shrubs were so beautiful to see. Nothing special needed to be done in their hillside gardens. The place was covered with blackberries when they first bought some fourteen or so years ago. We had thought they remodeled the house. That was their intention when they bought, but the further they looked at the construction of the house (dry rot, etc.) they decided to build a new house in

it’s place. Tillamook Bay and Garibaldi is seen from their hillside location. We were there on one of the warmest, cloud-free days of summer and enjoyed the visit and garden tour with Sally. Good luck with your move to Arizona. It will be a different type of gardening there for sure. Thanks Sally and Arlo for letting us come to your place one more time. Next, we went to Patrick Tempels on Seattle Street in Bay City and then to Al Leach’s home. Both interesting places to see. Both so different from one another. Cleared paths and lots of trees at Patrick’s place. Raised beds with flowers and vegetables planted in thelm. At Al’s place, he had several garden spots with ripe tomatoes, carrots, brussel sprouts, vine vegetables, etc.  I picked a bouquet of lovely sweet peas to take home. Sue Aalykke also picked a bouquet of sweet peas. We saw the shop where Al does his woodworking. He has so many bowls of different sizes and woods, it was very interesting to see. Those who came to the Nea-Rock Garden tour were:  Sue Aalykke, Mikki Gruber, Janet Stahl, Nancy Pickett, Betty Ralston, Carol Palmer, Phyllis Holmes (sure good using the crutches after her accident on the beach), and myself. Oct. 16, 2013 is the next Nea-Rock Garden Club meeting. This will be a potluck at Betty Ralston’s house. She always has a well-maintained garden. Let’s hope for one more sunny fall day. Meet at 11:30 a.m. at Betty’s for the potluck lunch. Carpool from PUD at 11:15 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 9 is the Gardener’s Tea. Tickets at the door. More on this next time. The After Christmas Party will be in January. Plans yet to be decided.

group of friends recently met at the Rockaway Beach Tavern in support of a wonderful family who, through no fault of their own, is going through a tough time. Friends filled the tavern and laughter echoed through the building. How lucky to have so many caring friends. Our fire department could use a little help on this one. The rigs always keep small stuffed animals to give to children during scary times on their calls. Their supply is running low and they could use the communities giving spirit right now. The smaller animals are easier to store. Beanie baby size is perfect but any small clean and fresh stuffed animal will do. The department also has an evening with Santa in which the kids are given a goodie bag and possibly a stuffed animal straight from Santa! How cool is that? The department asks that you drop off your new or used animals at the city hall or to your favorite Rockaway Beach Firefighter. Now let’s get our community spirit into hyper drive and shower the department with lots of cuddles for our kids. Here’s an autumn thing to do: Saturday Oct. 5 is our Meals for Seniors Octoberfest at St Mary’s hall! They will be serving sausage, sauerkraut, potatoes, gravy, veggies and dessert. The meal

By John Sollman for Karen Rust


n Sept. 21 I attended a beautiful memorial service for Judy Wadley, our departed postmaster. It was held in the large meeting hall attached to the Tillamook Church of the Nazarene. Unlike most funerals or memorial services I have attended, at Judy’s service we all sat at tables, about six people to a table. It was my pleasure to sit with Bay City Councilor Robert Pollock, and Linda Downey and Angie Cherry from the Bay City office. The service lasted about an hour before a very large group of Judy’s friends. My neighbor, Bob Miles, was one of the “ushers,” who provided the microphones for Judy’s friends to give their remembrances of Judy during her lifetime. The program opened with a reading of Judy’s “obituary” followed by a performance by the Reflections of His Glory dance team, which also closed the program. To me, it was reminiscent of a Missing Man flyover, an old military tradition, since Judy had been a member of the dance team. There was, indeed, a missing person, but I’m sure she was looking down upon us and laughing all the while. As I said last week, two fundraisers are in the works for the Wadley family. There will be a Pasta Feed at “Fresh,” formerly called

will be served from 3-7pm. Cost is by donation. Come join the fun! It’s getting to be the time of year to clean up our yards for winter. I can’t wait to have my first bonfire, in an approved fire pit in our back yard. Just waiting for the burn ban to be lifted. A little reminder that the library has its computer tutoring coming up Oct. 18. Be sure to contact them if you need help with your computer or tablet. The one-hour class is free and tailored to what you need. Call 503355-2665. There are some weekly activities that will help warm you this fall. Through December there is clogging 10:30 a.m. Tuesdays and line dancing 1 p.m Thursdays at the community center. And through November there is bingo at the Lions Club every Friday night and year-round you can play every Saturday night. It is so important to keep your body and mind busy through the long wet season. What better way than to have fun doing it. I just received an email telling me that Offshore Grilling is now opening at 7 a.m. And amongst their wonderful meals, you will find biscuits and gravy, various types of French toast including banana bread and pumpkin spice, breakfast sandwiches and my personal favorite: burritos. A perfect way to begin your day! If you have any neighborhood news at all you would like to share be sure to call me or email me. It keeps my column so much more interesting when I can have more subjects in it. “In life we never lose friends, we only learn who our true ones are.” That’s Rockaway Beach, “Sugar Coated!” ArtSpace, on Friday, Oct. 4, from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. There will be several pastas to select from, including a gluten free option. The menu also includes salad and bread. Costs are: kids – $5, seniors – $6, and adults – $8. I hope to see you there. The Bay City Boosters Club and Fire Department will host a hamburger and hot dog feed at the Community Hall Saturday, Oct. 26. In addition to the eats, there will be a silent auction to help the Wadley family. I’ll provide more details in a later Fencepost. Stay Tuned. County Service Officer Bill Hatton announced recently that there has been a change in the scheduling of the DAV van that carries veterans to their medical appointments in the Valley. Dispatching of all vans statewide is now centralized in Portland. To schedule a ride, you must call 800-949-1004, ext. 57804, or 503-721-7804, at least four business days before your appointment. Appointments scheduled between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. are eligible for a return trip on the same day. When scheduling a reservation, provide your pick-up city and date, name and last four digits of your SSN, your phone number, and time and location of your appointment. I talked to Karen at our VFW meeting. She still can’t bear any weight on that foot and ankle yet, but she gets around. She has a scooterlike contraption on which she kneels with her injured leg, and she uses the good leg for propulsion. It’s a nice looking rig. She said she’s feeling better, and looking forward to bearing weight in about two weeks. Our local deer are doing well. The twins born this spring are quite big, and they’ve almost lost their spots.

A law of nature: movement is wealth


was offered a job recently. Yes, it was a harrowing experience, much like being involved in an automobile accident when everything goes into slow motion, but when I explained I was retired, I was thrown clear. The mistake I made was moving around. If I had stayed put like I was supposed to, like most retired people, I would have been safe. When you move around you become susceptible to the laws of nature. It’s an unknown fact that one of the laws of nature is, movement creates wealth. How do you think Marco Polo could afford to travel to China in 1260? Granted, rates were cheaper then, but mainly it was his father, who paid for everything, which is another law of nature. A young man probably pops into your cerebral cortex right now who would surely die of lack of Doritos and video games if left to his own resources. Have you considered sending him to China? Like Marco Polo he could go into the pasta business and return as a representative of the Top Ramen

Corporation. Anyway, Marco Polo’s father didn’t pay for everything all the time. Marco met Kublai Khan who paid for everything. Unfortunately that’s like having the Mafia pay for everything. They’re going to want something in return. As it turned out, Emperor Khan wanted holy oil from the Vatican. See? One day you’re sitting at home wishing pasta had been invented and the next day your life is a Dan Brown novel. My point is, if you’re bored and a little short of wealth, there is an easy answer – road trip! Why are Muleshoe, Texas and Bullshirt Springs, Oregon

Gardening Matters

(recently renamed), not worldwide commercial centers and New York, Singapore, and Cloverdale (I saw it on a tee shirt) are? Simple. They can afford to hire Weiden and Kennedy, the famous Portland PR firm, plus they’re located at the intersection of well-established trade routes created by the Kardashians, an ancient shopping family. People who are older than you want to give you advice. Listen to us. If Ben in that movie The Graduate had listened when that friend of his father tried to give him career advice in one word, plastics, he would have gone to work the next day and avoided sitting on the bottom of his swimming pool in scuba gear showing how symbolically superior he was to everyone over 30 and a complicated plot that so confused him he didn’t know whether to have an affair with Mrs. Robinson or her daughter so he did both. He also would have been able to grow into middle age drinking expensive scotch and have nothing to say to his kids except single words of advice


t the end of August I wrote a column about the three worst weeds in my garden. At the end of that column, I asked you to email me the three worst weeds in your gardens so I could compare. Little did I realize how much evil there is in the world! Many readers agreed with my choice of blackberries. And I got a good tip for dealing with them from Janna who told me that she cuts the main blackberry shoots to ground level this time of year and paints the cut with a full-strength herbicide. She then pulls the tendrils out and disposes of them. As Janna reports, “It is neat, and you walk away knowing that you have killed with great satisfaction!” One of the reasons this works so well in the fall is that the plants are moving their sugar supplies into the roots for the winter, and by using herbicides in October, the plants do the work of moving that herbicide into the root system for you. Other readers remarked that they are plagued with horsetails. I agree this is a common and serious problem. They are hard to remove because when you break off the stem from the root, the plants


will grow new (and more) stems from the break. But when we realize these plants were around when dinosaurs walked the earth, who are we to think we can rid ourselves of them? But Janna’s idea of painting herbicides on the cut once you have pruned the horsetails back would help keep horsetails in check, though. I was surprised by some other comments. Sylvia told me she has problems with a new, weedy grass getting away from her. At least this grass is new to her garden. I suspect what she is describing is quack grass and it can be hard to get rid of because it, too, sprouts again and again from a break in the root. If you loosen the soil around the grass, you may have more luck pulling up long strings of white roots as you weed.

They generally tend to run just under the soil cover and don’t often go deeper into the ground. Sally has a thing against Scotch broom and quite a few people joined her in listing that as an evil plant. We see it mostly in the disturbed areas along the roads, but it sometimes can creep into a garden. Best time to get this weed is when they are small and you can yank the whole plant out of the ground. Getting rid of it before it goes to seed is helpful, too. Just after it blooms is the ideal time. In cases of large areas affected, try cutting them to the ground and then getting a head start on pulling the new sprouts as you see them. Don’t burn this weed, though! It can give off poisonous vapors. It really shouldn’t be composted either as the seeds can stay viable for 50 years even when not in the ground. Place in heavyduty bags and set them out for the garbage instead. The key to keeping ahead of Scotch broom is persistence! Keep cutting and cutting year after year and you can get rid of them. I was also surprised at how many Tillamook gardeners are bothered by Little Bittercress. It can be a pain if your

garden is overrun, but at least this plant is easy to pull if you can get it before the tiny white flowers turn to seed. These are the ones that “pop” their tiny black seeds that fly everywhere. I think there are more tenacious plants to put on the list of evils than this one. Some readers thought I should include non-plant invaders. Of course slugs topped this list! But aphids and European crane flies came in second and third. It is true that slugs help Mother Nature break down decaying plant matter, but I only ask that the slugs stay in the woods and out of my hosta beds. I haven’t figured out yet what crane flies and aphids are good for. All in all, I came to the conclusion that we all have our burdens and our problems are always harder to bear than the burdens of others. Or at least we perceive them to be. I realized after reading the emails from my readers that perhaps my “Axis of Evil” wasn’t so bad after all. I can put up with some ivy and bindweed if I don’t also have to contend with Scotch broom or horsetails. And at least the blackberries give back in the form of some pretty tasty fruit.

like internet. If you remember the last job you had, most likely you got it because you were out moving about. I know, I know, the way people really get jobs today is You go on line to submit a resume while your avatar is being attacked by dragons, a sort of video game for the unemployed. Okay, so you weren’t actually moving yourself about but moving your avatar about. Since job hunting today doesn’t involve showing up in a real office with plants where they can smell how many times you’ve worn that shirt, and since they meet your avatar instead, it’s important to have an impressive avatar, somewhere between Beyonce and Brad Pitt. Your problem is your avatar is more like Charlie Brown. So work on your avatar, network with friends and listen to the older generation. We know a lot. Besides, with the bang up job we’ve done for the past couple decades, I’m sure you’ll want to be just like us.

Forest Service, Siuslaw National Forest, Hebo Ranger District. On September 23, 2013, District Ranger George T. Buckingham made a decision to proceed with the Salmon River Boat Basin Enhancement Project. The site is located 0.5 miles west of Highway 101 on the north side of the Salmon River estuary in north Lincoln County. A 70 ft x 630 ft artificial Lshaped waterway, excavated in the 1960s, truncated Mink Creek, altered hydrology of the area, and reduced habitat for juvenile salmonids. Approximately 7,800 cubic yards of manmade berm will be removed. Most of the removed berm material will be used as to fill in portions of the artificial waterway. The left over berm material will be placed in an upland area of the site. Mink Creek will be reconnected to the Salmon River by reconstructing a channel along its historical path.. The project is located within Lincoln County. Copies of the Decision Memo and the Project CE are available at of-

fice in Hebo and can be viewed on our website: This decision is not subject to appeal pursuant to Forest Service regulations at 36 CFR 215.7. Please contact John Casteel at (503) 392-5119 on weekdays for further information.
