PARKING PROHIBITION A look at downtown Tillamook’s sometimes confusing parking rules BY JOE WRABEK

“If I live another 20 years, parking will still be an issue,” Doug Henson said. Henson serves on the Tillamook City Council. There is parking downtown. A lot of it isn’t used. People who work downtown are frustrated because they see empty parking places and they can’t use them. They have to park a ways away. They don’t understand what’s going

on. And they don’t know how to change it. Tillamook is an old town, incorporated in 1891. Most of downtown was built without reference to parking because there was no traffic. Downtown Tillamook was on the waterfront, city councilmember Doug Henson said. The traffic—and the need for parking—came later, after the construction of decent roads to the Willamette Valley, Lincoln City and Astoria, and later still, after the North Coast became a seasonal mecca for

tourists. Today, the traffic is still seasonal. The City of Tillamook had parking meters for a while. They were reportedly taken out after the Fred Meyer store opened north of town. The feeling was the giant free parking lots there—and at the old Safeway store (now demolished), the cheese factory, and other businesses along Highway 101 North—would draw customers away from downtown if there was a charge to park downtown. The Downtown Parking District dates from 2006. Most on-street parking within

an 18-square-block area is limited to two hours (there are a few areas where it’s three hours, and some where it’s 15 minutes), and people who work or live downtown are specifically prohibited from parking there. The intent was to make parking space available for customers. “They didn’t want anybody who works downtown to park there,” Don Hurd said. “It was an attempt to open up parking spaces.”

Forest crimes


TCSO deputies battle timber theft, littering

In January 2011, in the dead of winter, 415 homeless people were identified in Tillamook County, among them 198 children and 217 adults. They were living in vehicles, in campers and tents, in the woods and under bridges, and some of them couch surfing, sleeping here and there for a few nights at a time. Last winter Tillamook opened a Warming Center in December, a safe, warm place for people to sleep indoors in dangerous weather. The Warming Center is activated by weather reports: when temperatures dip below freezing, or wind storms or flooding are predicted, the Center opens to offer a harbor from the elements.

Talk turns to ocean power BY JULIUS JORTNER For the Headlight Herald

PACIFIC CITY – About 30 people attended the meeting of the Community Planning Advisory Committee for Pacific City and Woods, held at the Central Building on Oct. 20. The attendees included members of the CPAC, representatives of the dory fishing fleet, and interested residents from the area and as far away as Nehalem. Jason Busch, the executive director of the Oregon Wave Energy Trust, gave a talk offering an industry perspective on developing off-shore waveenergy power generators. OWET is a nonprofit organization that is seeking to promote ocean energy development in

Oregon. Its membership includes many industrial entities interested in wave energy. Busch showed the latest maps, compiled by Oregon’s Territorial Sea Plan Advisory Committee, which aim to identify offshore regions most suitable for development of alternate power. One of the few favored areas on these maps is

off Pacific City, between Haystack Rock and Neskowin. The closest other such areas are off Warrenton to the north, and off Newport and Reedsport to the south. TSPAC will hold several workshops seeking public reactions in coming weeks. To supplement those, none of which currently are scheduled in Tillamook County, a public workshop will be hosted by the Tillamook County Futures Council, on November 8th , 6 – 9 pm, at the Officers Mess at Port of Tillamook Bay. On behalf of the PC Dorymen’s Association, Paul Hanneman said the fishermen will release a formal statement about the sea plans on Oct 23.

We’re adding new exhibits on a regular basis, hopefully giving them a chance to stay involved. And we do think offering rides on these rare airplanes will be a big selling point.” With the annual membership comes a free ride in a particular aircraft. For example, the Stearman membership, at $295, allows free access to the museum for a year, two guest passes, free admission to the museum’s Mini-Guppy (the bulbous aircraft in front of the hangar), a gift shop discount and one free ride in the Museum's PT-17 Stearman, an open cockpit WWII trainer.

If you look at a map of Tillamook County, you’ll see is that the majority of the county is forest. Specifically, it is Tillamook State Forest, federal forest – both U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) forest – as well as privately owned forest. All of that forestland is bisected and crisscrossed by windy dirt roads, rivers and streams, steep slopes, narrow valleys, vast expanses of wilderness. Not exactly what you might think of as a high crime area; but think again. Perhaps it is the very remoteness that draws people with criminal intent to think they can get away with crimes in Tillamook’s forests. Their crimes include extensive timber theft, not only individual households cutting firewood without a permit, (which is stealing), but organized black market fire wood selling.

ARIBALDI – For the second year in a row, the Coast Guard Station of Garibaldi has teamed up with the Garibaldi Fire and Rescue to bring the community what promises to be one of the most skin-crawling, hair-raising and terrifying haunted houses in history. Last year was the first time in about 15 years the haunted house had been reopened and according to patrons, it was a huge success. Such a success, in fact, the Coast Guard members putting it on again this year know they have a high bar to reach, but they are pulling out all the stops to make it happen. “This is a fun thing to do for the community and the more we put into it the better it's going to be,” said Coast Guard Fireman Brian Carlstrom. “Last year it was huge and this year we figure it's going to be double so we're doing everything we can to get ready.” The house this year will include a few of the same features as last year's haunted house but they'll be arranged in different ways to keep the audience jumping and never knowing what to expect. Plus, there will be a new array of horrifying features to scare anyone who feels brave enough to enter the house. “Last year no one expected it to be what it was and it hadn't been done by the Coast Guard in 15 years, so we didn't really have an idea of what we were doing. We just threw ideas at the board and went

with what stuck,” said Machinery Technician Third Class Mike Brisky. “This year we had a chance to see what works and what didn't work so we feel like we fine tuned things. “This year we also added another floor to the house and we have some really new ideas. One of our biggest goals was to make it so people who were here last year wouldn't be able to walk through and know what was coming,” Brisky said. “There may be some similarities, but there's going to be a lot of differences. This is going to

be fun!” The haunted house will be held at the same location at 1200 Garibaldi Ave and will be open after dark on Oct. 26-28. It's asked that anyone wanting to participate bring a nonperishable food item to donate to the local Food Bank before entering. Besides, the screams and frights, the haunted house generated quite a bit of food for the Food Bank last year. “Lat year we raised over 2,000 pounds of food for the Food Bank and my guys are really proud of that,” said Coast

Guard Master Chief Michael Saindon. “Besides being a fun community thing, this is a great event for our guys. It's huge moral booster and really brings my guys together. Plus, it's great to have the high schools helping out this year too.” Tillamook and Neah-KahNie High Schools will have concessions set up this year for people waiting to get into the house. The money raised by both schools will go to the 2013 SAFE graduation fund.

TILLAMOOK – The construction on Third Street that started in May is a long way from being completed, but there is progress being made and according to Tillamook Director of Public Works Liane Welch, the project is on schedule. “The contract date is next spring so I don’t expect to see the project being completed until around June,” Welch said. “Currently, the first three-inch lift of asphalt is in place and the second three-inch lift won't be completed until we have our next weather window.” Because only one of the three inch lifts has been done, some of the ramps on and off Third Street, and a few of the other road pieces, aren’t lined up correctly at the moment. As an example, the manhole covers are raised above the current road level, making them hazards for drivers. Welch said Public Works is aware of the

issue. “There are 35 manhole covers in the construction area on Third Street,” Welch said. “What we’re doing is putting temporary striping through 17 of them which could be issues for drivers, and after striping them we’re going to put up 25 mile-perhour signs as well as ‘bump’ signs for drivers so they are going slow and know there are obstacles in their path. “We’re also in the process of pouring sidewalks and blending the driveways back into the the original ground to make things smoother for drivers,” she said. As of now, the road is a one-way street making it inconvenient for drivers, but the street will be turned back into a two-way shortly. “Once the stripes are done and the equipment is moved, the street will go back to a two-way and the school buses that had been rerouted will be able to use it again like normal,” she said.



SEASIDE – Tillamook County Commissioner Mark Labhart visited Seaside Oct. 11 to listen to a presentation made by Sam Chan, an assistant professor with the Oregon State University’s Sea Grant program, before a gathering of the Oregon Vegetation Management Association at the Seaside Civic and Convention Center. A film crew from the Japanese television outlet MHK Broadcasting videotaped Chan’s presentation as part of a documentary looking at the impact of the tsunami in North American, according to Noboru Nakasahima with MKH Broadcasting. The Japanese film crew took visual images of the tsunami debris from the March 2011 tsunami that devastated the Japanese coastline and is now washing up along Oregon shores. The team also conducted interviews with city and state officials as part of a documentary that will air on Japanese television in November. “We Japanese feel somehow responsible for the debris,” said Nakasahima. “NHK believes it is important for our viewers to know how the tsunami debris has impacted the United States and how the debris may threaten the beaches and ocean.” The television documentary is expected to include how the debris is being collected, who is collecting the debris, and who will pay the cost of the tsunami debris cleanup. It will also show the invasive species threat and how Oregon is coping with that threat. Producers also want to outline the impact of the debris on marine safety, especially ship safety. “Invasive species are new to them and they felt it was important to inform Japanese people about that,” said Chan. “It is very critical that we understand that they feel really bad that their problem ended up on somebody else’s shore. But they don’t know how to help because international laws don’t have any mechanisms as to who should pay in the event

of a natural disaster. So they are providing money as a source of care and goodwill. Chan said $6 million could be made available by the Japanese for the tsunami debris cleanup in North America and more money could come from foundations in Japan. “We in Oregon are very sympathetic to the tragedy of the Japanese people,” said Labhart. “We understand that places still don't have power restored and the re-building effort will take years to complete and many billions of dollars. We can't image how horrific it must have been to the (Japanese) population.” Labhart said Oregon has much to learn from the Japanese disaster. He told members of the film crew that Oregon officials should keep talking with the Japanese in order to share the lessons learned. “When we have our event, which we will have someday the scientists tell us, we need to be better prepared than we are now,” Labhart said. He said the Japanese offer of money to help clean up the tsunami debris along the West Coast is a gesture of friendship. “That is pretty impressive, Labhart said. “I want to thank

them for that most generous gift.” The chair of the Governor’s Task Force on Tsunami Debris says $350,000 has been spent in Oregon on the tsunami debris cleanup so far. Much of that cost was needed to remove a large Japanese dock that had washed ashore at Agate Beach in June. General Mike Caldwell said more of the tsunami debris can be expected to wash ashore this fall and winter brought in by annual storms. Caldwell warned that coastal communities should be prepared for debris from small Styrofoam to large docks like the one that washed ashore in Lincoln County in June. “I believe this can be a dangerous environmental situation especially with the large pieces of debris like the dock,” said Caldwell. “There are tremendous amounts of invasive species on there that could be extremely damaging to the economies of the coast and to the people that make a living here.” The state has set up a toll free phone system to take reports of tsunami debris found by the public. The phone number to report the debris is 211. For more information, visit

South county celebrates a station BY NANCY WHITEHEAD For the Headlight Herald

The new Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District fire station in Hebo.

ing, Nestucca boasts many long-time trained volunteers such as Straessle. Ed Hodgdon of Beaver joined in March, 1960. Ginger Slavens, from the Blaine area, has been a member for 15 years. Ginger’s four sons and her husband are also volunteers. There are many others with lengthy or family service. Ginger filled me in on the district’s Cadet program. It offers students who are 16 years old an entry into firefighting and rescue work. Many local youths have gone through the Cadet program and on to careers as EMT’s and firefighters. One former Cadet will soon graduate from medical school. Destanee, 15, and her sister Aleesha, 9, daughters of Richard Baumgartner of Hebo, attended the Saturday event. Destanee plans to join

the Cadet program as soon as she turns 16, then to get her EMT/Fire training at a community college and go on from there to a career in nursing. Jourdan Cole, daughter of Iraqi vet Jaynie and NRFPD volunteer Travis, is counting the days until she turns 16 and can join. The fire district even offers a scholarship to graduating Nestucca seniors. Joe Ehly III of Hebo, 2011 Nestucca High graduate, is participating in another NRFPD program, its Resident Volunteer program. Joe lives at the fire station in Pacific City, receives training and some money for college tuition from the district, responds to emergency calls, and has other duties at the station. Brian Jones, the district’s newest hire, was a resident volunteer here in south county. His new



30 Years of

job is his first career position as he begins working his way up through the ranks. The new Hebo station has rooms for three Resident Volunteers, with a large day room with kitchen also at their disposal. The district is actively seeking resident (and other) volunteers. At this point, the Resident Volunteer rooms are unfinished, as is much of the other space in the new station. Floor coverings and furniture are missing, but the basics are in place and the space is functional. The 9,500-square-foot building cost $1.8 million. All but $125,000 of that was paid by insurance on the former fire station in Cloverdale, which burned in 2010. The $125,000 amount has been covered with a line of credit loan from TLC. This loan can be paid off using part of the money already allocated each year in the district’s budget as ‘building funds’. That is, no new taxes were required to build the new station, nor will they be needed to finish paying for it. Building costs were kept low in part by the county’s willingness to trade its larger Hebo property for the district’s Cloverdale real estate. Fire Chief Kris Weiland praised the new location as a huge plus for the district: it’s centrally located within the 125 square mile fire district, and it’s near both Highway 101 and Highway 22

Proven Public Service where Paid for by the many committee to traffic accielect Andy Long dents occur (90% of emergency calls to the district are for medical assistance). Additionally there is room for visitor/employee parking and room to park emergency vehicles outdoors for maintenance. There is space to hold trainings. The unfinished ‘expansion room’ at the rear of the building is large. It will eventually house a kitchen and space for meetings. NRFPD board president Ken Crowe envisions ‘barn-raising’ type community events to finish this space. Doug Olson, project manager for the construction of the fire station, sees the station used as headquarters for emergency service providers, such as the sheriff and Red Cross, in the event of a natural disaster or other large emergency. Approximately 100 people toured Station 87 of the Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District on Oct. 20. H14674

HEBO – Where do you head if you want to find a welcoming spot in the little towns of rural Oregon? What if you’re new to an area, away from family? What if you’re a military veteran returning from Iraq and still wanting to help people in crisis where do you go? What if you’re a hard-working recent high school graduate with a bit of a daredevil nature? Or you’re a high school student still and you want to get a feel for working in the medical field? The resounding answer Saturday at the open house for the Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District’s new main station in Hebo, was “you go to the fire station.” I went to the Hebo station Oct. 20 to tour the new building, but it was the people who work for the district – its employees, volunteers, board members, Fire Chief, friends, family members and wannabes – who stole the show for me. Jacob Straessle, 11 years old, of Hebo, gave this reporter the introductory information she needed about the new fire station and who was who. Jacob and his brother Jared know the fire department well; their dad Jim, an electrician, has been a NRFPD volunteer for 19 years, their mom Rene also volunteers. While 2.5 years is the average length of time EMT’s in the U.S. work in the field after their train-



Rockaway residents meet city council candidates BY MARY FAITH BELL

ROCKAWAY BEACH – A city council candidates forum was held Oct. 16. There are five candidates running for four Rockaway Beach City Council seats: Rich Riley, Dave May, Sue Wilson, Bonnie Sedgemore and Tom Martine. In a City known for contentious politics, the tone of this forum was entirely civil; in fact, Rich Riley stated “There are five of us running for four seats, and you can’t make a bad vote.” Dave May agreed, “Any one of us would do a good job.” Sue Wilson echoed the sentiment, “We’ll all work hard for you.” Candidates fielded questions from the audience on several topics. Here is a sampling of their responses, beginning with the City budget. Rich Riley, who has been on the City Council for four years said, “I am concerned because I know of some costs that we weren’t aware of (when the budget was built), so we didn’t budget for them…but we have a balanced budget, which by law is all we can have.” Dave May is in favor of reducing the budget “If we can save money without dropping the level of services.” Bonnie Sedgemore favors

Bonnie Sedgemore speaks during the forum.

budget reductions, “If we could reduce the budget I would be for it, cut out anything extra or extravagant, and just keep to basics.” Sue Wilson wants TRT funds to be collected from vacation rental homes in Rockaway Beach, suggesting that the City is missing out on revenue some private vacation rental home owners aren’t paying. The candidates responded to the question, what they would do to increase tourism and encourage tourists to return. Tom Martine said, “The town is looking nice. We need to keep it presentable, try to keep it clean and looking good.”

Rich Riley noted that a certain percentage of TRT funds are required to be spent on advertising to promote tourism. “We have to make sure that the media advertising funds are getting us the most exposure,” he said. Bonnie Sedgemore talked about encouraging tourists to want to come back to Rockaway Beach. “Advertising is good to get people here, but we need more than that, we need to give visitors the kind of experience that makes them remember Rockaway Beach and want to come back. We have a nice beach; we have nice shops, not fancy, like Manzanita or Cannon Beach, but nice. But most of all, we have nice people.” In terms of projects the candidates would be interested in taking on as member of the City Council: Bonnie Sedgemore said that she is interested in getting information to the public about the City and what’s going on. Sue Wilson outlined an idea for public transportation in the form of a trolley car that would carry folks from one end of the city to the other. “We could pay for it with a grant. It could be biodeisel or electric,” she said. “Trolleys are cute, people like cute; the town is cute, so why not?” Tom Martine is interested in

bike paths for Rockaway Beach, and perhaps a carnival. Dave May expressed an interest in working with the railroad. Street repairs: Tom Martine said “Street repair is a slow moving process, and it’s expensive. If people want to pay more in property taxes we might get better streets, but most people don’t want to pay higher taxes.” Dave May supports a fiveyear road levy to pay for street repairs. “Bring it to the voters,” he said. Rich Riley stated that the City has a roads and street paving priority list. “We know what needs to be done and how to prioritize it.” Asked what makes them feel most proud of their city, Tom Martine said, “The city looks good; City Hall looks good.”

Rich Riley mentioned the Rockaway Beach Lions Club. “You don’t walk a block in the city without seeing a project the Lions Club has funded or contributed to.” He praised city government. “We have a good, solid city manager in Lars Gare, and I am proud of every department we have: police, fire, public works, City Hall, we don’t play second fiddle to anyone. I’m proud of us.” Dave May is proud of the new fishing dock on Lake Lytle. Bonnie Sedgemore is proud of the people of Rockaway Beach. “We’re all here as equals, and we’re all good people, just hometown people.” Sue Wilson said “I think the best thing that happens in this city is us, the volunteers. It takes a cadre of volunteers to run this city. We all help and we should be proud of it.”

Common sense in parking policy T

he City of Tillamook and TURA have gone to great lengths and expense to assure that there is ample parking for the tourists we hope to draw to the downtown sector in the future. They should be applauded for their foresight and good sense: people won’t stop if there’s nowhere to park. That said, there are problems with the parking situation. For one thing, as Joe’s article points out, tourists don’t know we have parking because we don’t have signage directing them to it. I’m glad to hear that the City’s RARE intern will be working on the parking signage issue; hopefully we’ll have signs before next summer. Here’s another problem: for most of the off-season those parking spots are empty. On a recent October afternoon, the beautiful new TURA parking lot at First and Ivy was completely empty except for a bunch of boys on BMX bikes doing tricks in the otherwise vacant lot. I’m not complaining about kids on bikes; I’d rather see them safe in an empty parking lot than on the street. I am complaining that residents and downtown employees can’t use those lots, not even in the dead of winter when no one, not even kids on bikes, will be using them. This year like last, we’ll be walking past the empty parking lots in the wind and the rain to get to work. There’s something wrong with this picture. Couldn’t downtown employees use those parking spaces for six months of the year? Supposedly, downtown employees could lease a parking space for $30 a month. But when a woman in our office tried, she was told there was a wait list. This is mysterious, as the lease lots are never more than half full, and usually less than that. Personally, I will not pay $30 a month to park. I don’t think it’s a reasonable expense. Speaking of unreasonable, what about the $50 parking tickets? Did you know that if you work or live downtown you’re not allowed to park downtown at all, not even for 15 minutes? If you do park

downtown, and the parking enforcement officer knows your car, you’ll get a $50 ticket. I think this is outrageous on several levels. For starters, how many employees who work in downtown Mary Faith Bell Tillamook can afford a $50 Editor ticket? That represents the better part of a day’s wages for a lot of folks. For another thing, if I break the two hour parking rules and get a $5 dollar parking ticket, I certainly deserve it. If I stay there all day and get three $5 tickets, I deserve them all. But a $50 ticket? I’ve received a $50 parking ticket in downtown Tillamook, as have several of my colleagues at the Headlight Herald, and it fills me with ire. In fact, I haven’t paid it yet, because it makes me so darn mad. I guarantee that $50 parking tickets generate more ill will than revenue. Downtown businesses need local customers to survive. Second Street Market merchants, Fat Dog Pizza, Diamond Art Jewelers, Anderson Florist and Sweet Perfection to name a few all require the boom-boom base beat of locals who support their businesses on a regular basis through the long, dark winter months. Yes, they also need the cash infusion of summer tourists, but really, locals are their bread and butter. I want to shop downtown because I believe in supporting local businesses. But because I work for a downtown business, I’ll get a $50 parking ticket if I park my car within an 18-block radius. How does that add up? If you want to encourage locals to do business downtown, don’t punish them for parking downtown; you can’t have it both ways. Tourist-centric policies should not discount the value of locals who work and live and shop downtown. Parking over the two-hour limit tickets should be increased to $15, and the $50 tickets should be abolished. The resident and employee parking prohibition should also be abolished.

READERS’ OPEN FORUM Join me in voting for Andy Long for sheriff As we receive our ballots in the mail and make difficult decisions, there is none more important locally than the Office of Sheriff. The Office of Sheriff has evolved into an incredibly complex Executive level manager. Your Sheriff must have in depth knowledge of current labor laws, high level budget experience, personnel management skills, as well a broad knowledge of current law enforcement trends. Your sheriff must understand emergency management, jail operations, parole and probation, as well as civil law and search and rescue. Your sheriff must have the ability to manage significant major crimes one day, and a natural disaster the next. There is only one candidate that has this experience level and knowledge base to hold the Office of Tillamook County Sheriff. Sheriff Andy Long has worked in and managed all disciplines within the Sheriff's Office. Sheriff Long knows how to run a jail, a major crime event, prepare multiple budgets for evaluation and approval, manage people in a professional and respectful manner. Sheriff Long has served his community for over two decades at the Sheriff's Office, and is respected as a leader throughout the Sheriff's Office. I urge you to join me and vote for Sheriff Andy Long, you will find him to be an ethical leader, with uncompromising integrity. Todd Anderson Tillamook County Sheriff, Retired

my next president. I think I have found an absolutely reliable source, the people of Massachusetts. Unlike the rest of us, they have first-hand experience with a Romney government, and made a clear decision. In 2003, Romney had an approval rating of 66 percent. By the time he left office, his rating had dropped to 34 percent. One might expect a former governor to enjoy a “favorite son” advantage in his home state, but the people of Massachusetts know him and know better. Obama leads Romney by more than 16 percent in current polls. Jim Heffernan Tillamook

Why good questions aren’t asked Many years ago, in the 70s and 80s, I watched the debates. It seemed to me that serious issues, the ones that Americans were concerned about, were discussed. That was when the League of Women Voters sponsored the debates. Both political parties got together in 1988 and secretly agreed to a memorandum of understanding, which included which candidates could participate (no third parties); who could be panelists (and be able to ask questions); what topics could be discussed; and etc. The League of Women Voters withdrew its sponsorship of the debates because "the demands of the campaign organizers would perpetuate a fraud on the American voter." Since 1987 the debates have been handled by The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), a non-profit corporation controlled by the Democratic and Republican parties, sponsored by private contributions from foundations and corporations. Do you feel that a fraud is being perpetuated on the American voter? I think it is sort of

self evident, don't you? How about a question asking why we are still outsourcing jobs and giving tax breaks to those who do? How about asking why we don't restore the laws we use to have that prevented the banks and Wall Street from defrauding American citizens? Do we want foreign investors buying our charter schools, profiting from our tax dollars? They are buying them. Just think, American education owned by a foreign country. This is the predicted consequence of our bizarre free trade policies that lead to a deficit of 800 billion dollars every year. Why not ask just exactly who and what is responsible for the economic mess in America? Isn't the Federal Reserve responsible in part for our economy? How about the secretary of the U.S. Treasury? What's his job? I'm talking about the guy from Goldman Sachs. Goldman Sachs, you know, the investment bank responsible for the Greek debt. As treasurer of the U.S., Geithner has served banks rather than supervise them, mishandled the housing crises, and has left our economy staggering. How about firing those people? Oh! There are so many good questions that will never be asked. Dixie Gainer Nehalem

same style of treatment by Ms. Phipps when we tried to process a home-addition project application back in 2008 for our home in Oceanside. Besides the same rude and unprofessional treatment, we also were forced to listen to Ms. Phipps' personal opinions of whether the development we live in should ever have been allowed to be constructed, and forced to make multiple repeat trips to the Tillamook County Courthouse to resubmit our application over and over again because it lacked documentation that she decided was required that we were not told about on the previous visit. It was quite clear that Ms. Phipps felt that we didn't deserve respectful treatment as her constituents because we weren't one of her local cronies, and we instead deserved to be pushed around to be shown who was in control in that department. Our home addition project was finally approved and completed, not with the assistance of Ms. Phipps, but in spite of her attempts to derail us. We cannot believe that any Tillamook County voter who has ever met the real Lisa Phipps would even consider voting for her for County Commissioner! She clearly does not deserve to be an elected representative in this community. Geoffrey & Marcia Davey Oceanside

Yet another bad planning experience

Skating at old Safeway

We have seen the two previous letters to the editor from local citizens relating to their rude and unprofessional treatment by candidate Lisa Phipps while she was employed with the Tillamook County Planning and Development Department. When we read them, our immediate reaction was not of amazement and disbelief, but rather of complete concurrence and understanding, since we had been forced to endure the

I am a 14-year-old and a Boy Scout, and I think you should make a separate part from the old Safeway lot (that’s going to be a park) into a iceskate rink or at least another roller-blade rink. And if you can’t do that, I also think it would be a good idea if you made a skateboarding park on the side of the regular park. Noah Hoefler Rockaway Beach

GUEST COMMENTARY Everything you wanted to know about the Hatch Act


onstitution Party candidate for Oregon House District 32 and local blogger Jim Welsh is accusing county employees of violating the federal Hatch Act by sending an email that references a local union vote on endorsing county commissioner candidate Lisa Phipps. The accusation has caused county officials to seek legal advice from its counsel, attorney William Sargent. In an Oct. 12 online blog titled, “Tillamook County Library Employee Violates Hatch Act?” Welsh writes about an email sent by library employee Jessica Moran on Oct. 5 announcing an upcoming AF-

SCME Local 2734 Members Meeting to union members. The email reads, “Please join us for this important meetSamantha ing, we will be Swindler nominating and Director of News voting for officers, E-Board members and trustees. This is considered a general meeting and we will have available sandwiches, chips and cookies. Also, we will be holding two drawings for $50 each to reward the lucky members who attend. Topics to be discussed at this meeting include: Tillamook

County Travel Policy; AFSCME endorsement of Lisa Phipps for County Commissioner; Discussion regarding the AFSCME members meeting schedule (date and time).” It is signed by Bev Anderson, another library employee who serves as president of AFSCME Local 2734. Welsh writes, “The Hatch Act prohibits public employees from using government resources to promote a candidate seeking election to public office.” That’s not exactly accurate. The Hatch Act “restricts the political activity of individuals principally employed by state or local executive agencies and

who work in connection with programs financed in whole or in part by federal loans or grants,” according to the U.S. Office of Special Counsel. The Tillamook County Library system is not federally funded, and thus its employees would not be restricted by the Hatch Act. Ann O’Hanlon, Press and Public Affairs Liaison with the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, said the act only affects local or state employees who “have a duty or connection to federal funds” – that would be, someone directly involved in the handling of federal dollars.

Vote for Lisa Phipps

Don’t toss your ballot

Voters of Tillamook County will have the chance to vote for Lisa Phipps for County Commissioner, Position #1 in November. I’ll be voting for Phipps and I’m asking you to do the same. Here’s why: 1. We have extensive flood plain and river systems. Phipps is a certified flood plain manager, has a degree in fisheries management and was a Coastal Resource Planner. 2. Lisa is a strong contributor to our county, serving on numerous community, county, and state boards, including President of United Way. 3. Our environment is critical to Tillamook County’s well being. Phipps has a degree in Environmental Law. As Director of the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership, she is responsible for the Nestucca River being listed as a National Water Trail, on equal footing with the Chesapeake Bay and the Everglades. This was a huge accomplishment, one which increased clean business and tourism in our area. 4. She is a Municipal Court Judge. 5. She has been Mayor of Rockaway Beach. 6. She has flown to Washington, D.C. to work with Senators and Representatives on our behalf. 7. Phipps has created or sustained 100 jobs and brought over $3,000,000 into Tillamook County. She supports family wage jobs. 8. Lisa Phipps is a good citizen of Tillamook County and contributes her time everyday to benefit our community. 9. Lisa Phipps loves Tillamook County and is ready to “hit the ground running” on Day 1 as Tillamook County Commissioner, Position #1. 10. She’s a darned nice lady! Fauna-June Fauth Cloverdale

Please remind friends and family that their vote counts. The ladies at my post office in Garibaldi said they find ballots in the trash. This saddens me and is shameful. When kids I know turn 18, I try to send them a voters registration card with their birthday card. We all have complaints about our world politics, but when some elections are so close, your vote really counts. Teresa Freeman Bay City


Vote against Measure 84 I’m voting against measure 84, which would repeal Oregon’s estate tax. I write from personal experience of what to expect if Oregon loses the revenue from this measure. From 2008 to 2011, my co-teacher and I taught a class in conflict resolution at Portland State University. Students enjoyed our class and reported that they gained valuable insights about themselves and interpersonal conflict. However, in 2011, PSU was forced to cut 10% percent from its budget and the department chairman reluctantly informed us that he had to let us go. Other teachers in the department were also let go. I imagine teachers in other departments at PSU were cut as well. This year, PSU has enrolled more students than ever in spite of increasing its tuition. When you add up the cuts to all of Oregon’s colleges and universities, you get an idea of the magnitude of the effects on students and teachers: we now have fewer teachers, teaching more students who are paying more than ever for a higher education. The consequence is that class size has increased and the number and diversity of the classes offered has decreased. This is the condition we’re in now. However, if Measure 84 passes the state will have to

How do you want your water managed? I would like to commend the KRWD and Bay City Counsel for making the decision to tell everyone to vote no on measure 29-128, formation of Pioneer Water District, because of the number of errors in the mapping of the proposed district. They decided it would be to costly to make things right if it were to pass. I hope that the entities involved in the proposed water district will now take the time to try other alternatives, i.e. try an outside water service, try new board of directors, and explore your options. What almost happened could be a result of complacency. Be sure to vote no, then let your voice be heard on how you want your water managed. Susan Aalykke Tillamook

largest bay with metro Portland’s nearest access to the greatest ocean in the world. Our county has untapped resources of young and old citizens who could coordinate energy, skills and the spirit to make this a happier, more productive community. Bill has proven his stability, integrity and abilities with his outstanding family, in his business along with his wife Marilyn and fine children, and has been a major contributor to the communiy. Please vote for Bill Baertlein CPA for Commissioner position 1. He will make a tangible difference in Tillamook County. Lorraine Vandecoevering Garibaldi

Based on results

Bill Baertlein, CPA is the man for Tillamook County Commissioner, Position 1. He has served businesses and individuals in our area with integrity for over 30 years. Tillamook County’s fishing, farming, and forestry industries are major food and job producers who need a commissioner to represent them who is not a career politician. Tillamook County has uncommon liquid assetts; five rolling rivers, Oregon’s second

My first experience with Lisa Phipps was as I struggled through zoning and land use controls to establish a quarry on my industrial forestland. She was matter of fact knowledgeable, consistent, and direct as I successfully traversed the path through Tillamook county community development. I met her again when Tillamook County assigned her to the Tillamook Bay watershed council, which was dysfunctional at the time. Through her efforts, we started working together, and the respect she earned led to multiple years as our chairperson. As long-term volunteer with the performance partnership and then the Tillamook estuary partnership, I have been active through four changes of administration at the TEP. Lisa has been the most effective and balanced leader of that organization, in my experience, and guided it to national success. I watched the struggle and fireworks associated with Rockaway’s city government for years until Lisa stepped in as mayor and people started working together.

that were the only problem, “this is something that wouldn’t be worth my time to look into.” He added, “I think I can live with the process,” referring to the use of county emails to send out meeting notices. So let’s not say this is about wasting taxpayer funds via an email. It’s really about being mad that county employees wanted to discuss endorsing Phipps. Welsh’s righteous indignation over something that seems, in the grand scheme of things, not that big of a deal is difficult to understand. The county employees union endorses the former county employee candidate? Are we that shocked? Is this really an election gamechanger? The worst thing of all these online rantings is that it could be hurting Bill Baertlein, because it’s coming from a rather fringe and (in this case) misinformed voice. Baertlein’s base of appeal is far wider than that. I actually agree with Jim Welsh on some of the bigger issues. I don’t like how Deborah Boone has paid close to $50,000 in political funding, not to mention additional tax

dollars, to her daughter as an employee, or how tax dollars were used to send Boone’s “legislative update” weeks before ballots go out on her reelection campaign. In fact, the question came up during the Headlight Herald/AAUW political forum last week – no one knew, but I wrote that question. Boone says these things happen often in Salem. She says they’re legal. She’s right. They do. They are. But it’s not a good excuse. If the public should be informed about the workings of their state government, don’t you think there are more effective platforms than letting the lawmakers themselves write the message and choose when it’s given out? What an important time for me to learn about the legislature – eight months after they did anything and four months before they meet again. And there was absolutely nothing of substance in that brochure, with the exception of a box that provided a link to a website for foreclosure help. First, my apology to Mr. Welsh – I had aimed to write a commentary about the Boone brochure and never got around to it. You’re right – it’s bad pol-

Vote for Baertlein

I could go on with what others have told me about their positive experiences with her, and the efforts she has been involved with that have been so helpful to our community. Based on results, Lisa Phipps is the person most likely to serve all the citizens of Tillamook County and lead us toward successfully dealing with Tillamook’s multitude of problems as we seek a better future for our children and ourselves.

director’s time and dollars. The Tillamook County Soil and Water Conservation District is asking voters to provide the financial resources required to continue assisting our county residents to conserve, maintain, and prevent degradation of our county’s natural resources. Our county’s economic viability depends on conserving and using our natural resources wisely. I am asking our county residents to join me and voting yes on Measure 29-129. Ruth Fenk Tillamook

Error intolerance

No one is anymore against taxes than I. But, uncertainty is a given in our current economic times, and Tillamook Soil and Water is a noble endeavor helping to enhance farmland production while protecting natural habitats. The district helps to control flood, erosion and invasive pest damage through natural bio controls, i.e., the Synabar Moth. Please consider continuing this fine program through a Yes vote on 29-129.

As a long time subscriber and a former employee of this paper, I have to say how appalled I am at the lack of proofing that appears to be happening. I am embarrassed to even tell people I use to work for the Headlight Herald. I would hope by now you have heard from tons of other readers in regards to the misspelling of the name of one of the oldest families in this county. I don’t even know how this could have happened. It is beyond all comprehension how the typographical errors continue to occur. Patricia Archambault Concerned Subscriber Editor’s note: 100 percent accuracy is our goal. Please contact Mary Faith if you are interested in being a volunteer proof reader.

Support Measure 29-129 As wife of Tillamook County Soil and Water Conservation District Chair, Rudy Fenk, I request your support for Measure 29-129. Rudy has been a director for the Tillamook County Soil and Water Conservation District for over 35 years. There is no pay for Soil and Water Conservation District officials. In fact, it cost the

My first time voting and it’s for Baertlein I’m 18 years old and attending college this year with my vision on the future and how our nation and Tillamook will be shaped by this election. This is an important event for me since I’ll be casting my vote for the first time. Bill Baertlein is the candidate that I support and encourage new and old to stand behind. Bill Baertlein’s vision is to support and continue development of fishing, timber and dairy! My major is Fish & Game so it is very important to have these industries growing and healthy when I graduate! Haley Emerson Tillamook

Additionally, any Hatch Act provision would only apply to a partisan race. The County Commission is non-partisan, though since the local Republican Party has endorsed Bill Baertlein, an argument could potentially be made that the race had become partisan. O’Hanlon said only the U.S. Office of Special Council could rule and determine if a non-partisan race had become partisan. Contacted Monday afternoon, Oct. 15 about his column, Welsh said, “I’m not sure now the Hatch Act specifically applies.” Still, he has continued to post complaints about the email on his website. Welsh’s calls to the county have prompted an investigation by Sargent. Welsh’s request to speak about the matter during the next County Commission meeting has been denied, with the county calling this an ongoing personnel issue. Welsh calls the use of the county’s email system to send the announcement “improper use of county resources” and “use of taxpayer money for

political purposes.” In response to questioning from the Headlight Herald, Welsh wrote on his blog, “It is too damn bad that this will cost the county money (due to Sargent’s services) but I am just the messenger.” Now, lemme stop you right there. If you are concerned with misuse of taxpayer funds and violations of the Hatch Act, you should first read the Hatch Act properly before taking it to the county and requiring taxpayer dollars to pay for more employees’time to fend off a complaint from a vocal blogger and partisan political candidate. The county has previously authorized the employees’ union to send out emails about upcoming meetings. The Hatch Act does not apply to these library employees. We can have a discussion about whether the agenda items in this particular case should have been included, but it’s hardly the “rather serious situation” Welsh claims. Welsh admitted that he wasn’t particularly upset that the county email had been used – if

replace the estimated 120 million dollars of lost tax revenue just to maintain the status quo and the status quo is not acceptable– we need to increase our investment in higher education. Passage of Measure 84 would be devastating to higher education. Please join me in voting against this ill-conceived measure. Richard B. Powers Oceanside

icy and I should have opined on this matter. Second, my advice to Mr. Welsh – attack the law that allows legislators to waste your tax dollars on glossy candidate brochures. It’s a more effective argument than attacking Boone personally. Additionally, if you want people to side with you, you need to pick and choose your battles. Needling, berating, bullying comments are not unifying. They do not make people think about the bigger issues, how we all have more in common than not, how there’s not simply a black and white world in politics, or how many of the problems facing our community/county/state/nation could be solved if we all came to the table with the idea that no one is “evil" and common sense can prevail with level heads. Show reason, not anger. In this case, over the union meeting agenda email, Welsh has picked a battle with the library, the county commission, the union and the newspaper. He writes, “Is our Tillamook Headlight Herald going to let this issue see the light of day or will it, like other issues that reflect badly on local public officials (see MOOCountyNews’ numerous articles on Rep. Deborah Boone’s campaign finance peccadilloes), just decide to not rock the boat and bury it? Note that Carol Hungerford, owner of the Headlight Herald, serves on the Board of Directors of the Tillamook County Library.” He concludes that any reporter “worth their salt” would see “this is a problem.” Actually, any reporter would see this is a big ol’ partisan ploy. And it’s not worth reporting on until all the facts come out, not just the selective ones Welsh has offered up without research. So when Welsh writes “by the way, this matter will not be in the Headlight Herald in this week’s edition,” it’s because the matter came to my attention Monday afternoon, the paper goes to print Tuesday morning, and we have to fact check things before simply printing wild accusations.

Further, I’d like to address another rumor that might be circulating in Tillamook County. A few months ago, County Commissioner Charles Hurliman – whose seat is the one Phipps and Baertlein are vying for – contacted me, claiming Phipps herself was violating the Hatch Act by running for county office. O’Hanlon says that’s not possible. Hurliman argued that the non-partisan race had become partisan when the local Democratic Party put a Lisa Phipps sign in their window. (This was before the GOP Baertlein endorsement.) He further claimed that since Phipps worked for Tillamook Estuaries Partnership (TEP), a nonprofit that receives federal funding, she was violating the act by running for a partisan position. O’Hanlon clarified that the Hatch Act only applies to nonprofits specifically handling Head Start and Community Block Grant monies – no other kind of federal funding applies. TEP receives funding through the EPA Clean Water Act, and its employees are not subject to the Hatch Act. O’Hanlon admits that the elements of the Hatch Act that apply to local and state level government employees are “in desperate need of reform.” Carolyn Lerner, the current head of the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, has advocated for legislation that would eliminate the restrictions on state and local employees who are seeking elected office. O’Hanlon said the legislation to remove those provisions of the Hatch Act is pending in Congress. In a New York Times op/ed titled “A Law Misused for Political Ends,” Learner wrote: “Increasingly, the act is being used as a political weapon to disqualify otherwise well-qualified candidates, even when there is no indication of wrongdoing. An allegation that a candidate has violated federal law — simply by stepping forward to run — can cast a cloud.” I can certainly agree that’s the case here in Tillamook County.

‘No’ vote urged on water district due to technical error Initial proponents of the ballot measure to establish the Pioneer Water District are now urging a “no” vote on Measure 29-128 due to a technical error on the ballot. The Kilchis Regional Water District and the City of Bay City hosted a community meeting Oct. 18 to discuss the measure, which would establish the new district and a tax levy of $1 per $1,000 assessed property value. About 50 people who would be affected by the ballot measure attended the meeting at the Tillamook County Creamery Assn. In a surprising development, Shawn Reiersgaard, representing the Kilchis Regional Water District, and Lois Albright, city attorney for the City of Bay City, urged the audience to vote “no.” Albright said both the City and the Kilchis Regional Water District support the formation of the Pioneer Water District. However, a technical error in the process of identifying which properties should be included in the Pioneer Water District prevented ballots from reaching all qualified voters. This error was discovered after the Sept. 6 submission deadline and too late to correct before the distribution of ballots. Rather than attempt to provide relief to those property owners inadvertently included in the district, it was the consensus of the City of Bay City and the Kilchis Regional Water District Board that the best remedy is voter disapproval of County Measure 29-128. If the measure fails, the Kilchis Regional Water District Board will continue to operate under its present contract with the City of Bay City, which expires in 2021.

LETTERS: Voting for Baertlein As chairman of a recently completed private development project, I worked with Lisa Phipps when she was Planning Manager at the Tillamook County Department of Community Development. I worked hard to ensure that all requirements of our conditional use permit were in place prior to applying for the County Permit, and thought it should be a slam dunk. Instead the whole process took 14 months, and I feel that Ms. Phipps played a significant role in delaying the process. Throughout the process, I made several calls to Ms. Phipps’s office and was frequently put through to her voicemail by the receptionist, when I knew for a fact that she was in. It’s hard to do business with someone if you can’t talk with them. I felt that Ms. Phipps didn’t like the project personally and allowed that to affect her professional attitude. Finally, 10 months into the process Ms. Phipps told us that the permit would be ready in two weeks. Four months later, the permit was still not approved, with no explanation about the delay. After Ms. Phipps left the Department and took a position in Rockaway, we learned that some of the requirements incorporated into our permit were not actually required by local regulations. I don’t know Bill Baertlein very well, but the few times I’ve spoken with him, I like what he had to say, and his attitude. I do know Lisa Phipps, and I’m voting for Bill Baertlein. I urge everyone who wants to see our county move forward in this tough economy to vote for Bill Baertlein. Phil McMahon Tillamook

Support Tillamook United Way The Tillamook Food Bank would like the people of Tillamook County to know how valuable and helpful the Tillamook County United Way is to us all. During the year, Tillamook County United Way provides us with approximately 20-percent of our funding to serve about 5,500 clients and provides 65,000 meals. We do this with 25 volunteers that work about 2,600 hours during any

year. Without the Tillamook County United Way funding, we would not be able to help the hungry that live amongst us. It is our hope that the generous people of Tillamook County will continue to support the Tillamook County United Way so we at the Tillamook Food Bank can continue the work we have been doing since 1984.

generation to pay its own debts as it goes. I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. If the people let the governments decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, then they will live in tyranny. A truly remarkable man. John Zeggert Beaver

Words of wisdom from Jefferson

Thanks to United Way

Our current debt (not including social security) is more than $16 trillion (16 followed by 12 zeros). This amount in dollar bills laid end to end would equal $8 trillion feet. (Each dollar bill is about 6 inches in length and thus 2 dollar bills would span 1 foot.) Now divide 8 trillion feet by 5,280 (number of feet in a mile) and you get the number of miles our debt represents. This is now 1 billion, 515 million miles. The distance around the earth at the equator is roughly 25,000 miles so this amount of debt would stretch 60,600 times around the earths’ equator. Politicians continue with unprecedented spending like drunken sailors. Many agencies and departments should be eliminated or dramatically reduced as duplication and waste is rampant. Reports of some government workers getting 100-percent of their salary for pensions! What a deal! When will this madness end? In private industry, benefits are directly tied to a company’s profitability. I worked 30 years for one of the world’s largest companies and my pension is 20-percent of my annual salary. Not so in government, they just keep demanding and getting, more and more. Oregon’s PERS system is a prime example of politicians giving in to unions’ demands and as a result are buying votes from the state’s employees. Remember government workers salaries and benefits are paid for by the labors of private industry and its retirees. Thomas Jefferson had some quotes appropriate for our times: Never spend money you have not yet earned. It is incumbent on every

Thank you United Way for making it easy to help those in need in Tillamook County. Of all the places I have lived in my life, Tillamook County is easily the most generous when it come to helping others. We can track that generosity from year to year by following the amazing totals of all of the fundraising campaigns and activities held throughout the county. The United Way Campaign is one of those campaigns that I look forward to every year. United Way provides many different ways for the community to invest their resources in helping their friends and neighbors in need. With 18 different member agencies providing much needed human services, United Way provides giving opportunities that match everyone’s heart. As a member agency of United Way, CARE feels very fortunate that many of the hearts in Tillamook County are drawn to helping friends and neighbors meet their basic needs. Each year CARE receives funding from United Way to help people pay their rent and their utility bills so that they can be warm and dry; funding to help people purchase much needed prescriptions and to assist with transportation costs to important medical appointments so that they can maintain their health; and funding to help those without homes be sheltered. Your donations to United Way are a vital piece of the safety net for Tillamook County. A donation to United Way can be shared among the 18 member agencies or designated to the one that speaks to your heart. No matter who you donate to, however, your support of friends and neighbors in

Tillamook County helps us all. Thank you for your donations, and thank you United Way for providing such a great way for the people of Tillamook County to invest their resources locally for those in need. Erin Skaar CARE Executive Director, Tillamook

Tillamook Police Chief: In support of Andy Long I am writing this letter in support of Andy Long as Sheriff of Tillamook County. With the continuing budget and resource issues facing all law enforcement and public safety, it is more critical than ever that all public safety work together to protect and provide service to everyone in the county, not just from one issue, but with every issue, crime and concern that affects the safety and livability of all persons. Andy Long has continuously demonstrated the commitment, expertise and pride, in all aspects of both the administrative side of law enforcement and also in front line law enforcement and public safety, in all his continuous years of law enforcement roles. He has the respect of many partners in law enforcement and public safety in the county, which is critical, as all public safety needs to partner and work together on every public safety concern in the county. Even though I am concerned for all persons in the county, I am most concerned for those in my community. I feel that Andy Long as sheriff is what is best for my community. I strongly urge that everyone support all public safety in Tillamook County and all its wonderful communities by supporting Andy Long as sheriff. Terry Wright Tillamook Police Chief

Vote for Long On Nov 6th, voters will be asked to vote for Sheriff - there is only one choice that makes any sense. That is Andy Long for sheriff. I have spent 33 years in law enforcement with six of those years at the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office. I have worked with, and around Andy Long during that time. I have always found him to be an honest man

and an excellent deputy sheriff. That is what Tillamook County needs – an honest man for sheriff, with an extensive career in law enforcement and public service. The best quality that any leader can have are good people skills, as the Sheriff is the Chief Law enforcement Officer in the County. The sheriff must have those skills in dealing with both employees and citizens. Andy Long has those skills - much like Todd Anderson who I consider the best sheriff I have ever worked for. I know Andy Long has those same skills and experience. The Office of Sheriff requires experience in budgets, jails, civil division and the patrol division – Andy Long has those skills. So rather than electing someone who thinks they know what the job is, elect the person who knows what the job of Sheriff is – Andy Long. And if you really want to know, ask the people who work at the sheriff’s Office. They will tell you. David R. DeSau Neskowin

Long the clear choice Andy Long is the clear choice for Tillamook County Sheriff. I have known Andy, both personally and professionally, for the past 24 years. He is a proven public safety leader who has faithfully served this community and the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office, from front lines to leadership, for over 20 years. Andy is a man of integrity who is dedicated to public service. Working as a Corrections Deputy, Patrol Deputy, Detective Sergeant, Patrol Sergeant, Jail Commander, Undersheriff, and Sheriff – no one is more qualified to hold the position of Tillamook County Sheriff. Not only has Andy been a capable law enforcement officer and leader for the past two decades, he has also demonstrated that he is consistently trusted and respected by the men and women who work for him. As Sheriff, he will ensure that the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office preserves and protects the trust of the citizens it serves. Andy has the vision and the commitment to take the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office to the next level, which

will make our community a safer place for us to live. Andy is a leader who has my respect, complete trust, and whole-hearted endorsement. Andy will continue to be a great sheriff. Please join me in supporting Andy Long for Sheriff. Eric Swanson Tillamook

Yes on 29-129 I was on the ACS Board during the 1970s. It was directly involved with the Soil and Water. I have been an Associate Director and am now on the Board of Directors. Tillamook Soil and Water was the first Soil and Water District in the State of Oregon. It was also the first clean water plan in the state and that was in the 1970s. The Board of Directors are all volunteers. Ray Monroe is our Water Tech Specialist and is overwhelmed with work and needs office help. Our funding is almost entirely from grants and we have to compete with other organizations for the funding. Safe water has been a huge benefit to all of Tillamook County Agriculture. Please vote yes on 29-129. Clarence “Bub” Boquist Tillamook

Employee endorsement was unethical Last week the Headlight Herald printed an ad purchased by employees of the sheriff department supporting Andy Long for sheriff in the Nov. 6 election. I believe it’s unethical for Sheriff Long to allow his employees to solicit money and an endorsement when he’s their boss and he has control of their careers. Under Oregon law any employee is free to purchase an ad supporting a candidate, but they can’t do it as a group without filing appropriate paperwork with the Sec. of State (which they didn’t do) and because I know some of the employees on the list, I believe this puts all employees in a difficult position. Our vote is secret and this policy is unfair to the employees and our community and does a disservice to everyone. William Spidal Candidate, Tillamook County Sheriff

Search & Rescue finds lost woman

County Pioneer Museum now offers audio tours The Tillamook County Pioneer Museum has announced audio tours are now available for museum visitors. The tour focuses on several of the most interesting artifacts in the collection, indicated by cards with numbers placed throughout the building. The tour is also available in Spanish. “This is something we have wanted to do for several years,” said Museum Director Gary Albright. “We were given a generous grant from the Autzen Foundation to purchase the audio equipment and that made it possible for us to go forward.”

Albright also gave credit to KTIL Radio for making their studio available for recording the tour, and to Omar Hernández who recorded the Spanish version. The audio tours will be offered to visitors at no charge with their paid admission, but some form of collateral will have to be left at the front desk to assure return of the handsets. Car keys, a driver’s license or a credit card are the acceptable forms of collateral. For more information, contact the Pioneer Museum at 503-842-4553 or visit their website at

Garibaldi public works head departs GARIBALDI – At their regular meeting Monday, Oct. 15, the Garibaldi City Council approved the separation agreement with Public Works superintendent Wayne Schultz, who is retiring. Schultz had been the city’s public works head since mid-2004. Schultz’s departure means the city needs to contract with somebody to file the water reports required by the state, city manager John O’Leary told the council. Schultz had been the city water system’s “system operator,” licensed to file those reports. Martin McCormick, the number-two man on the public works crew, can do the work, O’Leary said—”he’s just not certified.” February is the next date McCormick can take the system operator test, O’Leary said. O’Leary said he had been in negotiation with the neighboring Watseco-Barview Water District to “borrow” their system operator, “but we haven’t finalized anything yet. I do have a certain amount of time within which I can get an operator,” he said. The work would

entail an estimated five hours a month, he said. “Otherwise, public works is running as it should,” O’Leary told the council. Temporary employees are covering for Schultz’ departure and the absence of Lloyd Bettis, the city’s third public works employee, who is off work for medical reasons. With the onset of winter rains, “we’re mostly trying to deal with storm water issues,” O’Leary said. The council also voted to authorize manager O’Leary to apply for grant funds from the Oregon Dept. of Transportation (ODOT) to replace city utilities in the Commercial Street wharf. The Port of Garibaldi is working on reconstructing the wharf, built in the 1940s. “But Commercial is a city right-ofway,” port manager Kevin Greenwood told the council. “There’s water and sewer and storm drains in there.” The preliminary estimate for replacing those lines is $900,000, Greenwood said. Greenwood offered to write the grant application (it would be for $300,000—”We thought that would be more competitive,” he said), but the applica-

tion would have to be filed by the city. “Cities and counties can apply, but not ports,” Greenwood said. The Garibaldi Port Commission, at their last meeting, authorized a letter of support for the city’s grant application, “and authorized me to help,” he said. “The Port will be doing all the work, and the city will get all the credit.” The city wouldn’t see the money before 2017, Greenwood said, “giving us time to round up the remaining $600,000.” The grant requires an 11% “hard match”--$27,000 cash that would have to be contributed by the city. Council president Terry Kandle asked if Garibaldi’s urban renewal agency could contribute any of the amount, or if the city itself could fund it if urban renewal didn’t. “By 2017 the $27,000 should be available,” O’Leary said. Eugene Tish, owner of the Garibaldi House hotel, urged councilmembers to attend the Planning Commission’s open house Oct. 16 on downtown and waterfront zoning revisions, which he characterized as “very important for the city. I realize the trend in govern-

ment is to make you live in a hole,” Tish said. “We can do better than that. I think you should be as involved as you can be.” City attorney Joan Kelsey agreed—to a point. Since the zoning ordinance changes are a legislative matter, she said, councilmembers attending the Planning Commission’s function is not an issue. “Asking questions at the Planning Commission hearing is where I’d draw the line,” she said.

PACIFIC CITY – On Oct. 18 at about 3:15 a.m. the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office responded to the report of a woman lost south of Bob Straub State Park in Pacific City. It was reported that two women from Portland arrived at the beach with a group around 11 p.m. to have a beach fire. The two women left the group they were with, went for a walk, got lost in the dark and could not locate the area of the beach where they had been. The women walked through heavy trees and brush in attempt to find their way back without success. The two women became separated from each other. After several hours, one of the women walked to a house in Pacific City, knocked on the door in the early hours of the morning and asked the homeowner to call 911. She requested law enforcement assistance to find her lost friend. At about 4:45 a.m., the

Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue (SAR) team arrived at the beach and dune areas near Bob Straub State Park. While the SAR team was getting ready to deploy resources, they heard a woman screaming for help in the wooded area. “It was wet and cold. It was raining and we could hear her screaming for help in the dark,” said SAR coordinator Deputy Dean Burdick of the Sheriff’s Office. “She was way south of the park. We had to hike through the woods to find her. It was so cold, we were worried about hypothermia.” At about 6 a.m. the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office and the SAR team located Krislyn Dickey, 24, in the brush south of the Bob Straub State Park. She was very cold and soaked due to the heavy rain, but otherwise unhurt. “We had a lot of SAR volunteers coming from around the county to help search for her,” said Burdick. “I’m just grateful that we found her.”

New ordinance limits truck traffic in Tillamook city limits BY MARY FAITH BELL

The City Council had the second reading of a new truck route Ordinance 1269, limiting trucks to certain streets to protect public safety. The ordinance will go into effect November 15. The ordinance limits trucks larger than threeaxle, single unit, larger than eight feet wide and 30 feet long or over a weight of 10,000 pounds to driving on the following streets only: Wilson River Loop Road, Third Street, Front Street, Cedar Avenue (between Front St. and First), Birch Ave (between First St. and Third), Stillwell Avenue, Trask River Road, Tenth Street (between Main and Miller), Twelfth Street (between Stillwell and Pacific), Del Monte Ave. (between First and Third), Main Ave (US 101), Pacific Ave (US 101), and Miller Ave. (between Third St. [Hwy.6] and Eleventh St.). The ordinance does not prohibit school and mass transit busses; garbage or recycling trucks; emergency vehicles; trucks picking up from, delivering to or servicing a location in the area, as long as the vehicle uses the major arterial closest to the pick up, delivery or service, and utilizes the shortest route available, traveling on the restricted streets or road for the

shortest distance possible. The ordinance does not prohibit driving to and from the vehicle’s home, provided the vehicle is unloaded. Violation of this ordinance constitutes a civil infraction, and could result in a fine of up to $260. News briefs from around the city: The first layer of pavement has been completed on the Third Street project; the construction will cease for winter and resume in the spring when the second layer of pavement will go down. Councilor Joe Martin noted that the man hole covers stick up above the first layer of pavement, and cars will need to drive around them for the winter. Councilor Forster reported that there will be a flu shot clinic at the Salvation Army food pantry Wednesday October 24 and 31. There will be a new holiday event December 1 in Tillamook this year, the Oregon Coast Festival of Light is a light parade for vehicles beginning at Fred Meyer, which is sponsoring the event, and heading south on Hwy 101, and ending at the Christmas tree lighting. Decorated cars, trucks, vehicles of all kinds are invited to participate. You’ve seen big rigs decorated with Christmas lights

and wreaths? That’s the idea. Converter kits can be purchased at auto stores to power the Christmas lights. The light parade is a holiday food drive: 50 cans of food is the cost of a vehicle entry. The theme, Councilor Forster described, is “bringing light to the table one vehicle at a time.” For more information check out this website: St John’s United Church of Christ is hosting a ham dinner with homemade pie October 24 from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Councilor John Sandusky announced. The old Safeway site on Hwy. 101 has been seeded with grass and has begun to sprout. The Tillamook Urban Renewal Agency, (TURA) voted to support the Safeway project with a grant of up to $5,000. Tillamook PUD will hold a board workshop October 25 at 6 p.m. in the public meeting room to discuss the future transmission line from Tillamook to Oceanside. Landowners who will be affected by the transmission line have been invited to the meeting, and the public is welcome to attend. There will be a short presentation and an opportunity for public comment. The PUD is accepting written comments on the transmission line until November 2.

New director for Garibaldi Museum GARIBALDI – Anna Rzuczek (it’s pronounced “zoo chick”) is the new manager of the Garibaldi Museum, appointed October 11. “I’m new to the area,” said Rzuczek, who lives in Tillamook. “I’ve only been here ten years.” Rzuczek has worked at the Garibaldi Museum since July 19, first for the temp agency the Museum contacted after former manager Marcus Hinz left, and subsequently for the Museum itself. The manager is the Garibaldi Museum’s only full-time employee. Rzuczek brings to the position an extensive computer background and a passion for history. “I grew up with the Paul Reveres and Ben Franklins” back East, she said. “It’s important that children know history.” That’s where events like next Sunday’s Hallowe’en Scavenger Hunt come in. “We can make history fun and interesting.” Kids visGaribaldi Museum manager iting the Museum get to feel otter and beaver pelts—the reason trading ships first came to the Pacific Northwest. “They learn how Anna Rzuczek to build a model ship—and also learn what everything on the ship does,” she said. “We need to go after the junior museum patrons,” she said. “They’re the future.” As it did last year, the Garibaldi Museum will close for the season at the beginning of November, and re-open at the beginning of April. “We’ve talked about opening up for Spring Break,” Rzuczek said.

WARMING: Last year thirty-four volunteers contributed a total of 1,050 hours on nights when the weather was dangerous between mid-December and late March. A total of 75 “beds” were provided on 34 nights. It’s time to train volunteers for the Warming Center for the upcoming winter weather season. Please consider attending a volunteer training November 1 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Tillamook County Library. The Warming Center is open from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. Volun-

PARKING: Hurd, a former mayor of Tillamook, is currently chair of the Tillamook Urban Renewal Agency. There are now three city parking lots downtown, all within a block of Main Street: (1) on the east side of Ivy, between Second and Third Streets; (2) a smaller lot on the east side of Ivy at Second; and (3) the “Urban Renewal lot” recently built on First between Ivy and Stillwell. (The Urban Renewal lot cost some $400,000 to build.) Residents, employers and employees are prohibited from 2-hour parking in the half-block lot between Second and Third on Ivy, and most of the new “Urban Renewal lot” recently built on First between Ivy and Stillwell. Those lots are mostly empty. “It’s a chicken-or-egg thing, I guess,” Henson suggested. “All this parking sitting empty in the hopes we’ll get some viable business.” The lots aren’t getting a lot of usage now, he said, “but five years from now…?” Resident, employer and employee parking is allowed in the smaller city-owned parking lot at the corner of Second and Ivy, and in another 15 spaces at the south (Stillwell) end of the “Urban Renewal lot.” Those spaces come at a price, though. It costs $30 a month to park there. 42 of the 53 available spaces are currently leased out, city manager Paul Wyntergreen said. “You apply at City Hall,” Wyntergreen said. “Mary Tucker handles it.” The spaces are leasable on a month-to-month basis, he said. There are no signs on Main or Pacific directing visitors or customers to the parking lots, because ODOT reportedly wouldn’t allow the direction signs on “their” highway. “They tell us what we can and can’t do,” Henson complained. “We’d like something on Highway 101 and Highway 6 to direct people to the lots,” Wyntergreen said. “They’re only a block off the highway.” One of the tasks for the city’s new RARE intern, Terra Wilcoxson, is to develop signs that will be acceptable to ODOT.

Continued from Page A1 teers are organized into three shifts: set up, clean up, and staffing the night time hours. Volunteers never work alone. Teams, couples, parents and teenagers are encouraged to apply together; volunteer for a shift and work it as a team. Individual volunteers are welcome and will be paired with another volunteer. Background checks and volunteer training are required. Numerous community agencies, organizations and churches contributed to the Warming Center in 2011-2012:

Oregon Food Bank Tillamook provided emergency blankets; Red Cross provided volunteer training and sleeping mats; Kilchis House provided coffee and supplies; the Catholic Church provide the space; CARE provided Erin Skaar’s leadership; and Emergency Manager Gordon McCraw partnered with the Warming Center in providing weather reports and recommendations about unsafe weather.

Empty rows of parking space on Second Street in downtown Tillamook.

“It’s a challenge,” Wyntergreen said. Residents, employers and employees parking in the Downtown Parking District outside of a space they’ve leased face a $50 ticket—if they get caught, and if the meter maid is on duty. (The meter maid works only 12 hours a week.) Some take their chances. (And some get tickets.) Others park outside the District—sometimes several blocks away from where they work or live—and complain. Tami Taliafero, who works at the Headlight Herald, described her frustration with downtown parking when she was pregnant last January. “I tried to buy a space. They said they wouldn’t have one for a couple of months.” Taliafero offered to get a note from her doctor recommending she park close to work. “I was 7-1/2 months pregnant. I had to walk slow, in a lot of pain, in really crappy weather. “They said they couldn’t do it for me ‘cause they’d have to do it for every other 7-1/2 months pregnant woman with a doctor’s note,” Taliafero said. “I complained on Facebook.” The prohibition, Henson said, addressed a long-standing problem of business owners parking in front of their businesses, preventing cus-

tomers from doing so. “I know it bothers some people,” Henson said. “Walk a little faster and get an umbrella.” Henson suggested getting a 30-minute parking permit as a possible solution for businesses (like the Headlight Herald) that have employees in and out a lot—but those are delivery permits, police chief Terry Wright said, for things like the florist shops’ delivery vans. (They are free.) The city’s parking ordinance doesn’t provide for any 30minute permits, city manager Wyntergreen said. “Limited exception permits” can be obtained free of charge for special events like “Moonlight Madness,” but they have to be requested each time. The city’s ordinance says applications for these “limited exception permits” have to go to the Street Committee, which will make recommendations to the city council; however, there’s no Street Committee any more. Requests are handled by the city manager. There are no other kinds of exemptions available. The frustration with Tillamook’s downtown parking situation seems to escalate as the summer tourist season ends, and the availability of parking space downtown becomes widespread. “You can park anywhere,” noted

Christian Gurling, curator of the Tillamook Air Museum, on a recent visit. “There’s a million spaces here.” “Tommy Boye” Steggell, whose “Tillamook Cow” radio studio is on Second Street, agreed. “After Labor Day, if we’re not parking here, it looks like a ghost town. Ghost towns are not inviting.” Tillamook County leases all the parking places on Madrona Street behind the courthouse for parking for its employees, under an old intergovernmental agreement that pre-dates the Parking District by many years, according to Paul Levesque. There are no other such arrangements with other downtown employers. “If the county can buy a strip of parking next to the courthouse and say ‘this is for employees only,’ why can’t I?” Tommy Boye asked. Gurling agreed. “Why can’t downtown merchants purchase a section of street for employee parking?” “And what about the downtown employee who wants to go shopping downtown on their day off?” Gurling asked. “Do they risk a $50 ticket when they do that?” (They do, city manager Wyntergreen said.) The idea of protecting parking places for use by customers is a good one—but there are fewer customers in the winter, and still the same number of parking places. There are also more parking places than there used to be, thanks to the building of the new lots. Is this an argument for seasonal relief? “Somebody will have to come up with a proposal and bring it to the city council,” Henson said. “The first thing is to get the businesses together,” Hurd said. He suggested petitioning the city for free parking. “Why not have 30 days of free parking? Why not try different things? Work on special deals for when the tourists are gone and we’ve got our city back,” he said. “There’s a lot of life in this town—just need to get the sun shining on it.” “We’re not living or dying on the money from parking,” Hurd said.

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!

Lunsford sentenced to 10 years Ronald Lunsford was sentenced to 120 months in prison with no parole for manslaughter in the first degree for the shooting death of Christopher Quinn Brusman on January 11, 2010, a Measure 11 offense. A jury found Lunsford guilty of the murder of Brusman, "committed under circumstances of extreme emotional disturbance," which reduces murder to the charge of manslaughter in the first degree. They also found him guilty of assault in the fourth degree against his wife at the time, Helena. Lunsford entered Brusman’s residence at approximately


11:30 p.m. with a loaded gun January 11, 2010, where he found his wife, Helena Lunsford (now Zuniga) in the bedroom with Brusman. Lunsford punched his wife repeatedly and then shot Brusman repeatedly. Lunsford’s sentence for assault in the fourth degree against Helena Zuniga is to be served consecutive with the manslaughter sentence. Lunsford received one year of credit for time served only on the assault, and no credit for time served for the murder charge. A restitution hearing will take place in November.

The meeting continued with a talk by David McCall, of the Tillamook County Solid Waste Program. He presented a perspective on the needs for comprehensive waste planning. He mentioned that curbside recycling pickups (already implemented in the city of Tillamook) are being considered for south Tillamook county. The CPAC voted unanimously in favor of allowing a conditional use permit for a duplex residence on Sunset Drive in Pacific City.

In response to potential state action to close the airport in PC, Merrianne Hoffman suggested CPAC form a committee to track the issue and lobby for keeping the airport open. Doug Olson said the Tillamook County Board of Commissioners is taking the lead on the issue, having already expressed interest in doing what’s necessary to keep the airport open. The next meeting of the CPAC is to be at the Kiawanda Community Center on Nov. 19 at 6:30 p.m.

The T-6 membership ($495) offers a free ride in the museum’s T-6 Texan. The Duck membership ($845.00) allows you and two guests into the museum for a year, admission to the Mini-Guppy, 15% off in the Gift Shop and a free ride in the Museum’s J2F-6 Duck. The top level, Mustang membership ($1,000) offers all the incentives plus a rise in one on the most rare functioning aircraft in the country, the museum’s P-51 Mustang. “The rarity of the airplanes dictates the level of of membership needed to get a ride on the planes,” said Gurling. “Fuel also has a little to do with it.” While flying in classic WWII aircrafts that were built between 1942 and 1949 is a thrill that very few people will have the chance to experience, safety concerns might keep some people on the ground. But Gurling is extremely confident in the safety of the planes, pilots and the riders. “Safety is of course a concern for the members, and it’s important we keep the pilots and the planes safe, too. That’s why we have the most top

quality maintenance crews available and two very qualified pilots who have spent their lives flying through very difficult circumstances such as aerial firefights,” Gurling said. “If there was any question at all from the pilots about maintenance or safety, we wouldn’t go up until everyone involved was completely sure it was safe.” And the pilots are instructed to take the riders wherever they’d like to go, within reason. The experience is totally catered to their wishes. “If they want to go up in the mountains and look for elk, they can do that. If they want to fly the coast line and watch the waves crashing from the air, they’re welcome to that, too.” The rides are being scheduled for preexisting fly days and will be approximately 30 minutes long. “Flying in these planes is an experience that is completely thrilling and unparalleled,” Gurling said. “The memberships even make great gifts for the person who has it all, because I bet they haven’t been on a ride in one of these planes.”

Public gives input on Parks & Rec Plan GUEST COMMENTARY When a tree falls, it isn’t up for grabs BY JOE WRABEK

TILLAMOOK – An estimated 20 people attended the City’s Parks & Recreation Plan open house Thursday evening, Oct. 18, in the Tillamook High School cafeteria. Attendees were treated to conceptual design posters for Tillamook’s newest park land, synopses of the new parks master plan, and invited to provide comments. City planner David Mattison and RARE intern Terra Wilcoxson were on hand for questions, along with Tillamook’s public works director Arley Sullivan and members of the city planning commission. Thursday’s open house was the second on the master plan. An open house the previous week at the 911 Center drew another 40 people, Mattison said. A city Planning Commission

CRIMES: “I’ve been working a timber theft case where the thieves cut 75 to 100 trees,� said Tillamook County Forest Deputy Dean Burdick. “They have the firewood sold on the internet before they get home. They’re not even harvesting fallen timber,� said Burdick. “They’ll cut old growth trees.� A recent drive through the Tillamook forest revealed several timber theft sites. Freshly sawn trees are a dead giveaway when firewood cutting is prohibited. “Every truck and trailer you’ve seen in the last month coming out of the forest full of fire wood is a timber theft,� said Burdick. Firewood cutting permits will became available October 22, before that cutting was prohibited because of fire danger. Another all too common forest crime is offensive littering, the illegal dumping of trash in the forest. “People come out here and dump their garbage rather than pay the fee at the dump,� said Burdick. “It’s terrible. The cost to clean these sites up is in the tens of thousands. I can’t even imagine what the price tag is.� On a recent Saturday Burdick came across trash dumped on a forest roadside a few miles southeast of Tillamook. There were five gallon buckets of gray paint spilled on the road, trash

City planner David Mattison, RARE intern Terra Wilcoxson, and City Public Works Director Arley Sullivan. meeting later Thursday (at 7 p.m.) didn’t take any action on the plan, Mattison said—that has to wait until after a formal Planning Commission hearing, scheduled for 7 p.m. Nov. 1 at City Hall. The Planning Commission is recommending new names for a number of the

parks, however, based on input received at the two open house sessions. They’re recommending: • Periscope Park be renamed Roosevelt Park; • W.E. Power Park be renamed Foundry park; • Hoquarton North Trailhead

become Headlight Trailhead; • Veterans’ Rotary Pioneer Peace Park become simply Pioneer Park; • Little Woods be re-named Peeler Park; • And the Oldenkamp RV Park property be named Killamook Park. A lot of input was received at the open houses, Mattison said. “Skate parks were the number-one subject,â€? he said, noting they had been the top item of interest in surveys since last year. “There’s a lot of push to put one back at Goodspeed Park,â€? he said. There was a skate park at Goodspeed, but now it’s just a concrete slab. Maintenance and funding issues forced its removal, Mattison said. “We also discussed dog issues,â€? Mattison said. “Do we allow dogs to run loose, or should they be on leashes and people have doggie bags?â€?

Continued from Page A1 bags of old VHS movies, pillows, Christmas table linens, and a case of medical catheters. Burdick donned latex gloves and sorted trash, looking for clues. “We’ll go a little further up the road,� he said. “When people do this, they generally dump it in several piles, like a trail of trash, rather than all in one spot.� Sure enough, just up the road there was more spilled paint and old clothes, and further still, the biggest mess was a wide spot in the road where people had dumped boxes of stuff over the edge of a ravine. A glance down the steep, muddy slope showed dozens of hardback books, more VHS movies, clothes, the kind junk that collects in piles and stacks if you don’t stay on top of it, and a large collection of plastic tablecloths. There didn’t seem to be any clear, safe path down to reach the garbage to clean it up. It would be a clean up operation that would require the time and labor of a crew of workers. In terms of the cost to taxpayers, consider the time and resources law enforcement devotes to investigating illegal dumping; add to that the expense for the Oregon Department of Forestry to clean it up, and finally, the relatively minor cost of dumping the garbage

itself. Other forest crimes include vandalism. “We check equipment on logging sites,� said Burdick. “People shoot the windows out of heavy equipment. It’s such a waste.� There’s drinking and driving in the forest, where drunk drivers seem to think that since they’re not on paved roads, laws no longer apply. Officers who patrol forests regularly encounter people without licenses, people with warrants, people who thought they were skating beneath the radar of the police by traveling forest roads. Forest deputies search for missing flatlanders who venture into the forest on the recommendation of a GPS that sends them onto impassable roads, sometimes socked in with snow. They search for people who become lost in the maze of logging roads that can continue for miles and miles, and end up in different counties. They search for people who went exploring and ran out of gas, or ran off the road. It’s so easy to get turned around in the forest that deputies travel with GPS systems and maps, and stop and check them regularly, to get their bearings. Illegal dope grows are an ongoing source of crime and pollution in the forest. “A few years ago we had to clean up

dump trucks worth of PVC pipe from a dope grow. They’d laid miles of pipe for irrigation. It was such a mess, it took so much manpower to clean that up it was unbelievable.� Burdick is not only scouting the forest to prevent crime, he’s also out there visiting with people, offering his help, handing out his cards, chatting with hunters, building relationships. “We want people to know we’re here,� he said, “but not in an oppressive way. We don’t want people to think they can’t come out here and have fun. This is their forest, and people feel an ownership about it, especially locals. We want people to think about calling us when they see someone else committing a crime. I’ve found that when I treat people with courtesy and respect, it pays off for years down the road. I’ve solved crimes out here that I never could have if people hadn’t given me information. Usually they’re people who know me, maybe I had an encounter with them when they were younger and I treated them fairly and gave them a warning, and they remember that. One judicious warning will do more good in the long run than a ticket ever will. The thing I like best about my job,� said Burdick, “is the opportunity to show the Sheriff’s Office in a good light.�

Editor’s note: Recently the Headlight Herald heard a report about confusion stemming from trees in close proximity to power lines cut by utility crews on Tillamook State Forest land to prevent power outages; is that felled timber available to citizens to cut for firewood? We asked Tillamook State Forester Dan Goody to answer the question for our readers.


When a tree falls in the Tillamook State Forest, it isn’t up for grabs. For example, where a power line crosses through the forest, utility crews must periodically cut trees that impinge on the corridor to prevent power outages. But the logs from a maintenance operation such as this still belong to the state. Where financially feasible, these logs will eventually be sold and the revenue distributed to the counties to help support their schools and infrastructure, in accordance with a long-standing trust-like agreement between state government and the counties. In some cases involving power line or road right-ofway easements, it is not profitable to commercially sell scattered individual trees as timber. In most of these cases, the felled trees would be available for public firewood cutting, which requires a permit. Public fire wood permits are available at the Tillamook district office of the Oregon Department of Forestry, except during fire season.

Removal of any forest product requires some type of permit, including saw logs, firewood, alder poles, salal, and other special forest products. The type of permit issued depends on the type of product, the amount, and the value. Taking a log that has been cut to maintain a utility rightof-way without a permit is deemed “timber trespass� under Oregon statute. As the first step in cost recovery, the Oregon Department of Forestry places a value on the felled timber by the same procedure used to appraise timber sales. If legal authorities determine the timber trespass was deliberate, or “willful,� a demand for treble damages will be made. But if the trespass appears to be casual or involuntary, then the department will seek double damages. Most of the Tillamook State Forest was made up of lands acquired primarily in the 1940s from counties that had received the cut-over or burned lands from private owners in lieu of back taxes. Counties transferred deeds to the state to manage, rehabilitate and reforest the lands. In return, counties receive a share of the revenues from the harvest of forest products. The revenue distribution formula is fixed in statute (63.75 percent to counties; 36.25 percent to state for management of the lands). Anyone witnessing suspected timber trespass, or theft, on State Forests is encouraged to contact the nearest office of the Oregon Department of Forestry.

Firewood permits for sale Oregon Department of Forestry, Tillamook District, firewood cutting areas opened Oct. 22. Personal Firewood Permits will be sold for $20. Purchasers must come in person to the ODF office at 5005 Third Street and bring the license plate number of the vehicle that will be used to haul the wood. Permits are only good for down and dead wood. Get information regarding woodcutting areas, permit limits, violations and consequences by calling the Tillamook ODF office at 503-842-2548.

Bobcats welcome back Whiteman BY JOSIAH DARR

Cheesemakers thump Tigers with 54-0 win BY JOSIAH DARR


he Tillamook football team was anxious and excited to face off against the Yamhill-Carlton Tigers on Oct. 19. The Tigers were winless for the season, the Cheesemakers were celebrating their homecoming, and they wanted to do it with a Cowapa League win. The game started off with a bang when Jacob Fowler took the opening kickoff deep into Tiger territory and was one tackler away from going all the way to the house. Unfortunately, the last Tiger caught him and the Cheesemakers were unable to turn the ensuing drive into points. Despite not scoring on the first drive, Tillamook played a strong first quarter and took a 14-0 lead into the second. It was then that the Cheesemakers separated themselves. Tillamook exploded for 34 points in the second quarter, opening up a 48-0 halftime lead.


(Left) Jacob Fowler and (above) Brandon Roehl during Friday’s homecoming game.

The Cheesemakers got a big night from a multitude of players, including 115 yards on 11 carries and two touchdowns from Jacob Wassmer, 151 yards passing and two passing touchdowns and one rushing from Matt Strang, as well as two catches for 45 yards from Jake Fowler. But that wasn’t all for Tillamook’s offense. Cole Berge averaged more than 20 yards on his three carries with a touchdown. Also having big games were receivers Isaac Stellflug and David Waud, who both had touchdown catches. Not to be left out of the scoring was Brock Lourenzo, who got a touchdown of his own on the evening. Overall, the Tillamook offense ran wild early in the game, and the defense was stout. “They tried to pass the ball a lot more than we thought they would, but we were pretty up on our pass defense,” said Tillamook head coach Matt Dickson. “After playing Scappoose last

week, our pass defense was ready. And it’s later in the season. At this point our technique and our skills are getting pretty good.” The Cheesemakers got a touchdown early in the second half to extend the lead to 54-0, which ended up being the final score. Tillamook moved to 4-4 on the season with the victory and 1-3 in Cowapa League play. Next week Tillamook will travel to Banks to take on the 5-3 Braves in their final game of the season. It could be one of the biggest games Tillamook football has played in a long time. “We’re .500 on the season right now and ending the season with a winning record is our biggest motivation at this point,” Dickson said. “We have a great group of seniors this season and we’ve had the goal of a winning season from the beginning and right now it’s right there within our reach. We just have to take it.” Tillamook will play Banks at 7 p.m. in Banks on Oct. 26.


If it isn’t one thing, it’s another this year for the Nestucca Bobcats. Their season started out promising, but after multiple injuries to key players, the team is missing major pieces. On Oct. 19, the Bobcats traveled to Portland Christian. The Royals rolled through the Bobcats defense to the tune of 44 points while not allowing the ‘Cats to get on the scoreboard. The Royals are averaging more than 41 points per game this season and have a perfect 8-0 record. The wet and muddy game stated off all right for the Bobcats, with their defense forcing fourth downs twice on the opening drive for the Royals. But, the Royals offense was able to convert on both fourth downs and eventually get the first score of the game. “Portland Christian has this double wing offense where they line up with two split ends and they have a ton of passing touchdowns from their quarterback Mumford this season,” said Bobcat head coach Jeff Schiewe. “They execute very well, and they executed on defense also.” The Bobcats offense was ineffective most of the game, but they did have one bright spot – the Bobcats saw the return of Sam Whiteman. “It was nice to see him back. We missed his toughness on the field,” Schiewe said. Unfortunately for the ‘Cats, Whiteman’s return wasn’t going to be enough with Drace Moeller, Zach Welch and Cody Chance still out with injuries. “We’ve been bit by the injury bug this season,” said Bobcat assistant coach Pat Connelly. “The guys we’re missing are big offensive threats, but their impacts are huge on the defensive side of the ball, too. We’re basically missing a huge chunk of our team.” Senior Austin Woods did well on defense for the Bobcats, making good reads and flying all over the field. He led the ‘Cats with 14 tackles on the night, but there were too many Royals to stop them all. The Bobcats dropped to 3-3 on the season and 0-3 in the Northwest League. But, they’ll try to get back on track when they host the Gaston Greyhounds on Oct. 26 at 7 p.m.

On Oct. 20, Tillamook’s youth third- and fourth-grade football team finished its first season ever, and the fifth- and sixth-graders finished their season as well. The younger kids ended their season with a 4-3 record and the older kids finished up going 3-4, but according to third- and fourth-grade coach Bryan Hornbeak, the season’s success won’t be measurable until next year. “Wins and losses aren’t how we measure success as coaches,� Hornbeak said. “We win if the kids come out next year and we lost if they don’t. That’s the only way to judge a successful program at this age.� Judging by the participation from the entire community, this season was a hit. “For being a first year program, this was a huge success,� Hornbeak said. “The way the whole community came together to support us was amazing. We had volunteer parents and coaches all the way to Matt Dickson at the high school and even the junior and high school football players helping us. “Everything I hoped would happen this season, happened.

This is exactly what Tillamook football should be like in the community, and I believe these kids are going to help build that kind of a football community.� While Hornbeak was happy to help coach the younger kids, he wanted to make sure credit was given where credit was due. “I have to give huge thanks to Frank Tuimato and Silvia Schriber for coming to me and getting me involved in the first place, as well as for their roles in the program,� Hornbeak said. “They’ve done so much it’s almost impossible to thank them enough.� For all the volunteer support from the community, it was still up to the little football players to get out there

According to Hornbeak, their improvement from the beginning to the end of the season was phenomenal. “The way the whole team made the transition from flag to tackle football was amazing,� Hornbeak said. “There were things we were doing at the end of the season, we couldn’t have ever accom-

plished at the beginning. Everything from their blocking to their tackling and passing got better every game and they looked like a completely different group of kids at the end than they did at the beginning. “I have to give all the credit to the kids.

ON THE DROP Fishing secrets in the age of the internet


s a flatlander who moved from the valley to the steelhead and salmon rich rivers of Tillamook County, I’ve seen firsthand the discontent some local fishermen have for outof-towners when it comes to putting pressure on the local rivers. Typically, fishermen are good at keeping a good bite secret. But in today’s age of cell phones, Facebook, internet forums and other social media outlets secrets are harder to keep. So how do people like David Johnson, who’s been fishing in Tillamook for 28 years and guiding in the area for 19, keep a ‘secret’ spot? Moreover, how can someone like Johnson be a blogger and a main information outlet in magazines and fishing forums without hurting his own business? It seems to be a matter of location. “Back when I started, in the 1980s, there was definitely more pressure on the rivers and bays than there is today,� Johnson said. “Growing up, there were much bigger crowds and lines at boat ramps on Tillamook Bay. But, say the Wilson River, has gotten a lot more pressure as of late. A lot of that increased pressure has to do with people reading in media over and over about specific areas.� But he also explained that people who might only go fishing once a month tend to be the people who are most influenced by social media, and are the most likely to go somewhere they’d recently read about on Facebook or an online forum. Inventor of the wildly successful internet fishing forum,, Tillamook local Jenny Logsdon-Martin has seen much of the same thing as Johnson. Logsdon-Martin’s site is so big that in the month of

August, had 367,0278 unique visitors and more than 5.5 million page views by people searching for or sharing information. “There used to be a lot of ‘yellow rodders’ out there who would show Josiah Darr up and not Sports Editor really catch much, but now with the availability of information, even ‘yellow rodders’ catch fish,� Logsdon-Martin said. “That being said, I don’t think Ifish or other social media is hurting fishing in Tillamook County. “On the contrary, the more people interested in fishing, the more people out there to help protect the resource. They have to be excited about fishing to want to protect them. And there’s no better way to get excited about fishing than to catch a fish. That’s where Ifish helps people.� The ‘yellow rodders’ Logston-Martin is referring to is a slang term for people who aren’t serious fishermen and often are using bottom of the line equipment that can be bought at any outdoor store. Many of these old rods were yellow in color, making it easy to identify the fishermen who may be new to the sport, or at least aren’t veterans. “I think the same number of fish are caught daily, it’s a matter of how small the pie is sliced,� Johnson said. “I know the media has hurt the catch of the better fishermen and evened the playing field. But in general, if you want to be on a good bite, you can’t just follow a report. To really have to already be there when the fish get there in the first place.�

New community United Way supports Marie Mills Center development director hired T TILLAMOOK COUNTY UNITED WAY

Crystal Tupacz works on janitorial cleaning skills at the Marie Mills office.

he Marie Mills Center is Tillamook’s support center for people with disabilities. “We serve some 65 people with disabilities in various ways,” Marie Mills’ Cindy Green told the Headlight Herald. From its headquarters building on Hoquarton Slough, the Marie Mills Center operates two group homes—one on Chestnut, with five residents, and one on Madrona with 11— and provides support to some who are living on their own. “Some folks need help with budgeting, buying groceries, and the like,” Green said. $4,000 of Marie Mills’ $2.1 million budget last year came from United Way, executive director Ron Rush said. The United Way funding is important because “it supports us with the extra things,” Green said. “We’re working at getting a generator for the group home on Chestnut for when the power goes out,” Green said. “The other group home has one.” Some of the money may be used to fund this year’s Halloween event, she said, to which everyone in the commu-

nity with disabilities and their families are invited. “So, fun things and very practical things.” “We have enclaves of people that work,” Green said— some at the Tillamook Country Smoker in Bay City, some in Marie Mills’ four or five janitorial crews that serve businesses all over the county. “We also do lawn maintenance,” Green said. “We have people here (at the headquarters center) who do confidential records destruction.” And “we have a couple of retired people who just hang out.” Clients are usually referred to the Marie Mills Center through the County, Green said. “We are not a state agency,” she said. “We are non-profit.” Clients themselves get state assistance, she said. Marie Mills has between 40 and 50 staff employees. “One of the biggest things we do,” Green said, “is help (clients) utilize their local communities. They work here, they shop here, they put their dollars back into the community. We’ve got a good community here.”

United Way helps CARE “It’s a hoppin’ spot most of the time, here,” CARE’s executive director Erin Skaar said. CARE is the local Community Action Agency, helping the homeless and low-to-moderate income. “Our focus is on housing,” Skaar said, “but we see it in a fairly broad sense. People need incomes and health. What are the pieces that de-stabilize housing?” “We have $158,325 in our budget to give away,” Skaar said. $6,900 of that came from United Way. “Those dollars are really vital to us because of their flexibility,” she said. “They come with the fewest strings attached.” Money from the state will often be restricted, she said; “it’ll say ‘may only be used for shelter.’ That won’t let us do a tent or a sleeping bag or cooking equipment.”

That “flexible” money bought a new truck window for a man living out of his truck when the truck was broken into, and a new tire for a scooter for a lady dependent on the scooter for mobility. “No state money would pay for that,” Skaar said. “We ask what is the greatest need and how can we meet it?” Eviction prevention is one of CARE’s priorities, Skaar said. “You have people who are working and just not making enough.” An unexpected expense—a vehicle breakdown or medical emergency—can make it impossible to pay the rent, she said. “We try to pay the one-time things.” Utility bills are another thing CARE helps with, she said; in the winter, utility bills can be one of those “one-time things” that get

All gave John high marks.” John Boyd added, “I am excited about the opportunity the Board of Commissioners has offered me.

partners” help with personal hygiene items, towels, and shower vouchers for the YMCA. “We don’t do food,” she said. “There’s a wonderful food network in Tillamook County.” They expect to have the warming center in Tillamook open by mid-November.

Hospital clinic construction is on schedule The construction project taking place at Tillamook County General Hospital is well on it way to completion. The new facility will offer a range of medical services all located under one roof. It will be far closer to a “Tillamook Medical Plaza,” as hospital workers are starting to refer to it. The nearly 20,000-squarefoot facility is set to open in May 2013. The construction is going so well at this point, Development & Marketing Director for the hospital, Melody Ayers, says a “coming soon” banner with this new name will be erected facing Third Street next week. Some features the new building will include are a new Urgent care, family and primary care, surgery, orthopedics, podiatry, job care, occupational health, a lab, and a new radiology area. “The layout of this multipleservice facility has been designed with input from local health care professionals to support the new, integrated patient-centered primary care home model,” Ayers said. Currently the peripheral projects the construction crew are taking on include electrical supply for the new facility, which is being installed this week by Tillamook PUD. This project will include an electrical vault being added that will use the same power supply

The Tillamook Board of County Commissioners announces the appointment of a new Director of Community Development. The County had 11 applicants for this position from throughout the region. The County Human Resources Director indicated this applicant pool was among the most qualified groups of applicants the County has received in some time. The Commissioners selected John Boyd of Roseburg. Boyd has twenty-plus years as a planning professional in Oregon. His current position is the Manager/Senior Planner for Douglas County and heads up their long range-planning program. Boyd earned his undergraduate degree at Portland State University in Finance and has completed the core coursework for a Master’s degree in Urban/Regional Planning also from Portland State. In addition to his rich academic experience, John’s practical planning experience in Douglas County included coastal planning duties for the communities of Winchester Bay, Gardiner and the City of Reedsport.

Department is working jointly with the hospital to upgrade the main water line along Birch Street, which will improve services to city residents. Another aspect of the construction underway is the cre-

ation of a bioswale system which is going in along the North side of the property. Bioswales are now being used more often throughout Tillamook County as a way to help direct, filter and disperse storm water runoff. A recent example can be seen by the Tillamook Bay Community College campus along Marolf Loop Road. “It’s exciting being a part of the development and building of this new medical resource for our community,” stated VP for Physician and Clinic Services Gina Seufert. “Having a facility that is designed with a patient-centered focus and supports the ability of clinical providers to work more closely together for the good of their patients will mean a healthier future for Tillamook County.”

BEAVER – The Taylor Carter benefit concert on Oct. 20, raised a reported $700 for the toddler’s medical bills. The girl was seriously injured in a lawnmower accident. The event, held in the gym of the old Nestucca Middle School in Beaver, featured musical performances by Eric Sappington from Oceanside, Wayne Frampton and Sara Charlton from Bay City, Joe Wrabek from Garibaldi, and Barb and Russ Sanders, Jim Loughrie, and two members from the band Madrona, all from Beaver, and a special appearance by “Johnny Cash” (impersonated by Loughrie), with the rest of the musicians as his backup band. The concert is one of the few times the old wood-paneled gymnasium has been used for performance since the Nestucca Middle School was closed several years ago.

Irish traditional music comes BIRTHS to the Bay City Arts Center On November 11th the Bay City Arts Center will host Irish button accordion legend, Paddy O'Brien, fiddler Dale Russ, and guitarist and vocalist Nancy Conescu for a day of workshops, Irish fare, and an evening concert. In 2012, Paddy was selected as Ireland’s Traditional Composer of the Year, one of the highest honors in Irish traditional music. The trio will offer workshops at 1 p.m. for anyone who would like to spend 90 minutes honing their skills on accordion, fiddle or guitar. Workshops are only $20 per person, and preregistration is required. Alternatively Paddy also offers a workshop covering tunes and repertoire for all instruments. To preregister for a workshop, please call Corner Office Northwest at 503-368-2669. Then, starting at 5 p.m. Irish stew and soda bread will be on the menu for a suggested donation of only $5.00. The meal will be prepared by guest chef Rachel Phaksuwan (formerly of The Schooner in Netarts). Proceeds benefit the Bay City Arts Center. At 6:30 p.m. Paddy, Dale and Nancy will take the stage to present an evening of Irish traditional music as never before heard on the coast. Paddy weaves stories about the tunes and the people he learned them from into his performance creating a true Irish experience for his audience. Tickets cost $12 for adults. Kids under 12 admitted free with parent or guardian. Cash/checks accepted at the gate. If you miss this concert on November 11th, you will have a second chance to see Paddy on November 18th in a 3 p.m. matinee performance at the Hoffman Center on Laneda Avenue in Manzanita. From County Offaly in the midlands of Ireland, Paddy traveled the countryside as a young man to spend time with older players, absorbing music and the accompanying oral tradition. His early influences came from many players he met in sessions, including Joe Delaney and Dan

Cleary of Offaly, Donegal fiddler John Doherty, Paddy Fahy, Eddie Kelly from Galway, Frank McCollum of Antrim, Seán Ryan from Tipperary, and Johnny Henry from Mayo, among hosts of others. In Ireland, he played and recorded with the famed Castle Ceili Band and Ceoltoiri Laighean. In 1978, Paddy began playing regularly in the United States, in Washington DC, Saint Louis, Saint Paul, San Francisco, Boston, New York, and many places between. He has been featured on six recordings with Shanachie Records since 1978, and in 1988 released his first solo album, “Stranger at the Gate,” on the Green Linnet label (and recently rereleased by Compass Records). His most recent recordings include “The Sailor’s

Cravat,” with fiddler Tom Schaefer, bouzouki player Paul Wehling, and singer Erin Hart (who happens to be his wife); and a new solo CD, “Mixing the Punch.” Both of these recent recordings are available from New Folk Records/Cló IarChonnacht. Paddy has taught at the prestigious Willie Clancy Summer School held in Milltown Malbay, County Clare, Goderich Celtic College, The Swannanoa Gathering, and the Catskills Irish Arts Week. Since 1994, he has received a number of grants and fellowships to undertake an unprecedented project, recording and cataloging 1,000 tunes from his vast repertoire of traditional music; the result of that effort, The Paddy O’Brien Tune Collection: A Personal Treasury of Irish Traditional Music, has received accolades from players of Irish music around the world. Dale Russ’s fiddling is known for its balance of power and elegance. Dale started playing the fiddle in 1973 after moving to Washington State from his native Connecticut. Although self-taught—and 100% Slovak—he was invited in 1990 to perform at the first Boston College Irish Music Festival, “My Love is in America,” featuring 16 of the finest Irish fiddle players living in the States. The concert was recorded and released by Green Linnet Records and won an award from the Smithsonian as “Traditional Recording of the Year.” He has since recorded with various artists in the Seattle area including Hanz Araki. Nancy Conescu is an internationally respected guitarist and vocalist. She plays Irish music festivals and clubs in Ireland, Japan and the USA, and performs regularly in her hometown of Portland, Oregon. She has performed with Gerry Harrington, Joannie Madden, Andy McGann, Martin Hayes, Patrick Ourceau, Randal Bays, Brian Conway, John Redmond, Linda Hickman and Pat Kilbride.

Winter Weather Awareness Week BY GORDON MCCRAW Director, Tillamook County Emergency Management

Well, we have had our first series of storm systems signaling summer is officially over and winter is coming. Our days are getting shorter and the nights and days, are getting cooler. If you want to mark your calendar, Daylight Saving Time ends November 4th when we fall back. This week though, is Winter Weather Awareness Week for the Pacific Northwest. While Tillamook County has recently had a big campaign on Earthquake and Tsunami Preparedness, now is a good time to remind you about some of the winter hazards common to our area, and offer you some solutions. Whether we are talking about snow and ice in the Coastal Range passes, or flooding rains throughout the county (and don’t forget the hurricane force winds along our beaches, and sometimes even inland) being prepared

can make all the difference between safety and suffering. First, let’s talk about driving in the severe winter weather mentioned above. The best advice for driving in bad weather conditions is just not to drive at all. Ask yourself if you really must go or can it wait. If you must go, give yourself plenty of time so you are not rushed, and make sure you are prepared. Do you have an emergency kit in your car, plenty of gas, flares, sand or kitty litter? Be sure to take your charged cellphone with you, and be sure to let someone know you are going and about what time you should arrive. Are you prepared at home for the winter weather? The first challenge is knowing severe weather is on the way. Beside watching TV and listening to the radio, do you have a NOAA Weather Radio? These radios broadcast official Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a

day, 7 days a week. Many models will alert you with a loud tone as soon as a warning is issued for your area and will tell you what the warning is. It is also a good time to have your furnace or heater inspected so you know it is working properly before its really needed, check the batteries in your smoke alarms, plan and practice your family escape plan in case you have a fire. Do you have an emergency kit for each member of the family, including your pets? Don’t forget to protect your pipes when the temperature drops below freezing. Do you have a generator, extra gas, and when is the last time you replaced the gas and started it up to make sure it runs okay? These are but a few of the preparedness steps you should take before the winter actually settles in. Some additional steps might include signing up for Reverse Alert Notification on your cellphone. While the 911 Alert Notification System already has landline phone

numbers in its database, the new system allows you to log onto their website ( and under 911 Alerts, fill out a form that automatically attaches your cellphone to your residence. This way when an alert is sent out by geographical location, it will call your cellphone if the warning includes your home. Emergency Management also sends out cellphone and email alerts via Nixle, a system that also allows you to go to a website (, and select when and what type alerts you want to be notified about. Remember, in many of our severe winter storms, landslides, downed trees, and flooding, often prevents first responders from reaching you. It is up to you to be prepared; again, this can make the difference between safety and suffering! If you have any questions, feel free to call me at 503-8423412 or email at

Great photos were displayed. I picked out the winning 1st and 2nd place winners. They were such beautiful selections. It was fun to see so many Friends members there. I had not been to one of the meetings for several months. Everyone was surprised to see me. This was the first chance I have had to see the paving from the Loop Road to the Cape Meares parking lot. The paving is finished and the entrance road is in the best shape I have ever seen it. The Cape Meares Lighthouse will close on Halloween, October 31, 2012. It will open April Fools Day, April 1, 2013.

Garibaldi Fire Chief Jay Marugg is the interim instructor for Neah-Kah-Nieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Construction Trades program (youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll recall he was a contractor himself). The Construction Trades kids were accustomed to building a house every year and selling it, but with the economy in the toilet and homes impossible to finance, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking a break from building houses and constructing something elseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; specifically, an emergency shelter here in Garibaldi. Jay says the kids have worked out a materials list, and projected

The Garibaldi Food Pantry will be open Friday, October 26, 10-noon at the Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lighthouse church, 8th & Garibaldi Ave. (Highway 101). Got canned or non-perishable food to donate? You can bring it to the Garibaldi Post Office during working hoursâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and this coming weekend, you can also take it to the Coast Guardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Haunted House at 12th & Garibaldi Ave.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;admission is two cans of food, which will go to the Food Pantry. The Haunted House, hugely popular last year, will run Friday and Saturday nights, Oct. 26-27, 711 p.m., and Sunday Oct. 28, 79 p.m. Reportedly, the three high schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; S.A.F.E. programs will have food concessions there, tooâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as one of them put it, you can get fed and spooked at the same time.

hat was really a winter-like storm we had this week, but this morning, Tuesday, October 16, 2012, I woke up to bright sunshine and a quiet day with no wind or rain. Weatherman says we'll have only another day or two of this lovely, dry weather. It is hard to get back into the hard rains and wild windstorms. But we take what we get and I do enjoy seeing that sun out after several days of storms. I hesitated to even go out to the mailbox on the day the storm was the most severe. Now I have a lot of yard clean up to do. Branches blown down and leaves scattered all over the ground. Flowerpots blown away. Definitely time to



was advised Tuesday, October 16, that the Fire Chief had lifted the burn ban. You still need a burn permit for open burning if you live in the city limits of Garibaldi or in the Garibaldi Rural Fire Protection District (which includes Barview and Watseco as well as all that territory up the Miami River); you get the permits at City Hall. You do not need a permit for a burn barrel. (And I was asked to remind everybody that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re allowed to burn paper, cardboard, and woody debris ONLY. Just because the Fire Chief has ruled itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe to burn does not mean you can burn plastic or other hinky stuff. The rules still apply.)

If not, here is a story that will make you a believer of goodwill toward man! There is a lady that lives out at Goosepoint that had a huge laurel hedge blow over last winter. She had a heart attack and is not able to have it cut, cleared and cleaned up.

All of these good Samaritans have been pitching in to help one lady in need of some help. You too can help with cleanup by contacting Frank Harper at 503-377-2505.

‘You Can’t Handle the Truth’ This correction to last week’s Notes from the Coast comes from Lorraine Eckhardt: “Never in the whole wide world would the WCTU have condoned any smoking whatsoever. The 10 levels of achievement that earned a student a cigarette with their counselor came YEARS later when the WCTU no longer ran the home.” “You can’t handle the truth,” is a famous movie line uttered by Jack Nicholson playing a cornered general on the stand. I used to be a liar. I could say I’m from Texas and it was required, but that’s a cheap shot. I felt, I guess, my life wasn’t exciting enough and needed help. I had a friend a few years older who told me, in his gentle manner, it’s not always necessary to top every story. I felt chagrin. I’m very coachable. When I tried to stop lying, it was most difficult to tell the truth to myself. Since then, I’ve developed a taste for it and as Robert, a character in a Hemingway story said, I try not to lie to myself too much. I heard recently woman’s clothing size 8 in 1950 was in 1970 relabeled size 4 and in 2006, size zero. This is rampant in the clothing industry and researchers found improved

people's body image. It’s called vanity sizing. My father would have called it something else. I recently ordered a drink and was told there was no size small, only sizes medium and larger. In one experiment, people SCHUBERT were given cookies that MOORE were labeled either medium or large, and then measured how much they ate. They ate many more cookies labeled medium than large. The cookies were identical. Most Americans don't realize the soda they order today is six times larger than sodas 60 years ago. Also, a 32-ounce soda at McDonald's is called a large, but the same drink at Wendy's is called a medium. A hamburger today is much larger than it used to be. One analyst said people often don't have control over their body size and shouldn't feel shame. “It's not a question of being lied to," she said. "It's a question of do we want to be lied to." A double-A bra in the U.S. in Asia is labeled C. Any further comment by me on this subject is above my pay grade. Lying to oneself is not a recent phenome-

non. It was commonly accepted behavior during the time of Beowulf to stand up around the campfire, beat one’s chest and tell everyone how great a warrior you are. You can still see this behavior by fans at NFL games. When Bobby Fischer and Mohammed Ali announced they were the greatest, they were criticized for their lack of humility when they were simply stating a fact. I used to counsel students with self-esteem so low it was a handicap. Almost all artists greatly undervalue their works. Voting for our political leaders is still one area where we do not want humility. We want someone to tell us they know what to do better than anyone else. We don’t want a partner. We want someone we believe is smarter and braver than we are to pick up the reins of our runaway stagecoach. Finding an accurate value of our own self worth is difficult, if not impossible, and is probably a fool’s errand. We need to believe in ourselves. If we fudge the truth a bit, then good for us. I also found out recently, according to one study, creative people lie to themselves more often. Keeping that in mind, this is your nationally known finalist for the Pulitzer, your incisively profound columnist, Schubert Moore, signing off.

Dateline: Dickleburgh, England. (I kid you not.) To summarize the article, it seems environmentalists are concerned that the peat bogs are being harvested at an alarming rate to feed the gardens of the United Kingdom. British (and American) gardeners use the decomposed plant matter to nurture the lush gardens they are famed for creating. Peat is a combination of spongy matter, air, water and acidic matter, just what a lot of the British (and North American) plants thrive upon. But peat bogs are also a vital storage area for carbon dioxide. In this way, they act the way rain forests do in South and Central America. Since it takes centuries to build a peat bog, once the bogs are gone, those stores for carbon are also gone. So the British government, bowing to the environmentalists, has proposed to gradually eliminate peat from all gardening products. This presents quite a conundrum to the gardeners who love their yards, but also are invested in protecting the planet. What to do? What to do? Enter British celebrity gardener Bob Flowerdew. (Yes, really. I am not smart enough or clever

enough to make this up.) Bob, who is a panelist on the BBC radio’s “Gardeners’ Question Time”, has proclaimed he will defy the government and continue to use peat-based products. Apparently his statement of rebellion was akin to the Boston Tea Party and brought about a slew of hate mail and threats from one side as well as kudos and accolades from the opponents of the law. Bob has tried some of the peat-free alternatives and feels they just aren’t as good as the real thing. He is not alone in his thinking as lots of other, less famous, gardeners agree with him. “If you love your garden, you really can’t just abstain,” says Bob. Earlier this year, the British government set up an emergency task force to study the ramifications of peat use and to try to find ways to bridge the widening gap between gardeners and environmentalists. They are trying to find a sensible plan, one than can be embraced by both factions. It may sound like a joke, but this really gets to be a serious environmental issue. I know American and European gardeners also use a lot of peat and peat-

based products when gardening. It is a natural element that helps fertilize our gardens and it can be easily found in nurseries and garden stores in large bags. Public gardens and parks use tons of the stuff as compost or to condition and feed the soil. Horticulture is a billion dollar business and manufacturers of peat-based soils will begin to feel the crunch when they are forced by governments to reduce the amount of peat in their products. In fact, this has already begun in the UK. Greater awareness of the source of peat is one way of getting gardeners to understand the value of the bogs. It is really a component of climate changing that we, as responsible gardeners, shouldn’t ignore. We try not to plant invasive species in our yards anymore, and we try to reduce the amount of pesticides we use in an effort to help the planets. How is this different? In the meantime, the best replacement I can think of for peat is our very own backyard compost piles. We could also use the “renewable” resources of well-seasoned horse manure or the Tillamook digester product. How can Bob Flowerdew argue with that?

Bans gillnetting on inland waters


Licensed commercial fishermen are only allowed to use gillnets and tangle nets when fishing on the mainstem of the Columbia River and in a handful of selectarea fisheries on tributaries.


• Outlaw use of gillnets and tangle nets by non-tribal Oregon commercial fishermen in inland waters. • Make it illegal to buy or process fish caught by non-tribal fishermen in inland Oregon waters with a gillnet or tangle net. • Legalize use of seines and fixed gear for commercial salmon fishing. • Ensure that the recreational fishery in the main stem and tributaries is allocated a catch equal to or greater than the average of 2007 to 2011 fisheries.


The state would be required to evaluate the mortality of endangered fish species associated with seine and fixed fishing gear. This would increase state expenditures by $150,000 per year for ongoing research and monitoring. It will decrease state revenues by $551,654 to $749,144 per year from state income taxes, permits, licenses, and surcharges from gillnetting; future revenue associated with seine netting is unknown.


“As we approached the deadline for submitting this statement, Governor Kitzhaber announced an alternative proposal that would remove gillnets from the mainstem of the Columbia River by limiting gillnets to off-channel areas. While differences exist between the Governor’s proposal and Ballot Measure 81, both share the same long term vision: removing gillnets from the lower Columbia for the betterment of endangered wild fish, wildlife and our economy. “We believe that the Governor’s vision, if adopted and implemented as proposed, represents a significant milestone in the management of fisheries on the Columbia River. “However, as of this deadline, we cannot be sure that the Governor’s plan will be adopted by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission.” –Stop Gillnets Now

“... It will likely transfer jobs and income to Washington as its residents continue to fish and sell Columbia River fish in their stores.”—Lindsay Ball, former director of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife “Ballot Measure 81 will further divide Oregonians instead of advancing economic and conservation gains that a more thoughtful effort can achieve. Instead of recreational vs. commercial fishing interests, rural vs. urban interests or business vs. environmental interests—the interests of Oregon are best served when Oregonians find ways to advance mutual benefits instead of mutual division.” –Governor

Constitutionally allows privately owned casinos


Privately owned casinos are not allowed in the state. Tribal casinos are allowed under the gaming compacts.


Amend the constitution to authorize the State Lottery Commission to permit privately owned casinos under the following conditions: Voters authorize individual casinos by a separate statewide initiative; The casino is located within an incorporated city and has the city electors’ approval; The casino is operated by a taxpaying corporation incorporated under Oregon law; The casino cannot be located within a 60mile radius of existing tribal casinos on reservation land; Casinos must pay 25-percent of adjusted gross revenues to a state fund for job growth, educational achievement, local communities, environmental protection and support of Indian tribes in Oregon.


There may be a financial impact to local government entities that receive revenue derived from tribal gaming operations, because tribal gaming revenues may decline.


Supporters have announced plans to suspend campaigning, though the measure will remain on the ballot.

“Although proponents argue that their ultimate goal is to raise state revenue, the measures actually reallocate money from small businesses and the local economy to casino operators. “Proponents also argue that commercial casinos generate additional revenue for schools. However, the state currently collects 75% of the revenues from video lottery, while this casino measure would only contribute 25% of its gaming dollars to the state. So, money spent at the casino generates 50% less revenue for the state than it would at local small businesses.”—Oregon Restaurant & Lodging Association

Authorizes privately owned Wood Village Casino


Privately owned casinos are not allowed in the state. Tribal casinos are allowed under the gaming compacts.


This measure would only be operative if Measure 82 to amend the state constitution also passes. In that case, the State Lottery Commission would issue a renewable 15-year lease to the owner of the former Multnomah Kennel Club in Wood Village for operation of gaming devices, table games, keno, etc.


The state would receive 25 percent of the casinos gaming revenues, after prizes, which is estimated to be between $83 million and $94 million per year when the casino is fully operational. Of the state’s 25-percent share, 80 percent would go to the State Lottery Fund and 20 percent to the Oregon Job Growth, Education and Communities Fund. The Oregon Job Growth, Education and Communities Fund is distributed 75 percent to local governments, 15 percent to tribal governments, and five percent each to the Oregon State Police and to the Problem Gambling Treatment Fund. Oregon video lottery revenues are projected to decline between $61 million and $78 million per year. Because 65 percent of these video lottery revenues are transferred to state and local government, state and local government revenues are projected to decline between $40 million and $51 million. Indirect impacts on state and local government revenues and expenditures cannot be accurately predicted. The direct financial impacts of this casino are estimated to total between $32 million and $54 million per year gain for public purposes.


Supporters have announced plans to suspend campaigning, though the measure will remain on the ballot.

“The backers of measures 82 and 83 make a lot of big promises, but the truth is that these measures rig the system to hurt small businesses and rural communities. They include a loophole that allows them to skip paying taxes on slot and video poker machines at their casino, one restaurants and taverns must pay. That’s not fair.”—

Taxes on property transfers


A one-time tax is imposed on the estate of a person dying on/after Jan. 1, 2012 with a gross value as determined by federal law of at least $1 million. Estate tax is levied at a rate ranging from 10 to 16 percent of the assets exceeding $1 million. The tax does not apply to property inherited by a spouse, nor farm, forest or fishing property up to $7.5 million that is used in business. A sale of income-producing property is taxed regardless of the parties’ relationship.


The existing inheritance/estate tax, tax on property transfers between “family members” (defined as blood relations within the third degree) and tax on property transferred in connection with a person’s death would be incrementally phased out. Such taxes would be phased out completely by Jan. 1, 2016.


Estate taxes will be phased out over three fiscal years, reducing state revenue by approximately $17 million in fiscal year 2013-14, approximately $43 million in 2014-15, and approximately $72 million in 2015-16. Thereafter the measure will reduce state revenue by approximately $120 million per year, depending upon growth in estate values. Revenue lost from tax not collected on transfers of property between family members is unknown.


“The death tax is considered one of the most unfair taxes in the nation. It imposes a final tax on a deceased person’s money and possessions, even though they were all properly taxed as they were acquired. Yes, it is a double tax.

“OBA believes we must focus on comprehensive efforts to improve Oregon’s tax structure. We are disappointed that many groups, including the proponents of Ballot Measure 84, have taken

to the initiative process to deal with one feature of Oregon’s tax code. We believe one-off measures that change Oregon’s tax code is the wrong approach, and we are putting our energy into comprehensive tax reform.”— Nik Blosser, board chairman for Oregon Business Association

Re-allocates corporate “kicker” refund to education


Every two years, the governor estimates revenues expected to be received by the General Fund for the next two years. Currently, corporate income and excise taxpayers receive an automatic “kicker” refund when revenues exceed the estimated collections by 2 percent or more.


Amend the constitution to retain corporate “kicker” refunds in the General Fund for added funding of K through 12 public education, taking effect during the biennium that begins July 2013,


The financial impact is affected by unknown future events, and therefore uncertain. However, if this measure had been in place for the past 10 budget periods, the increases would have ranged from $101 million to $203 million in three of those periods.
