Pacific City airport closure discussed




n the 2012 general election, Tillamook County followed the rest of the country in voting to re-elect President Barack Obama, and the rest of the 5th Congressional District in re-electing Rep. Kurt Schrader. In statewide races, Tillamook County voted for the incumbents: Secretary of State, State Treasurer, state Attorney General, and Commissioner of Labor and Industries — as did voters statewide. The closest countywide election contest was for County Commissioner, Position 1, where Tillamook CPA (and Port of Tillamook Bay President) Bill Baertlein faced Tillamook Estuaries Partnership executive director (and former Rockaway Beach Mayor) Lisa Phipps. Baertlein won, 60 percent (6,831 votes) to Phipps’ 40 percent (4,487 votes). Phipps carried six of the county’s 30

At its monthly meeting on November 5th, the Pacific-CityNestucca-Valley Chamber of Commerce heard Mitch Swecker, director of the Oregon Department of Aviation, talk about potential closure of Pacific City’s airport, which is owned by the State of Oregon. At this time, there is no definite plan to close the airport. However, financial pressures motivate the Dept of Aviation to consider ways of reducing State monies spent on maintaining airports. Funding is not the only criterion for keeping an airport open. Of key importance are the community’s needs and the likely impacts of airport closure. For example, emergency access to the region; needs of the coast guard and the sheriff; and effects on local commerce and safety are all to be considered. The community’s active inputs are encouraged.

precincts – those that covered Manzanita, Nehalem, Wheeler, Rockaway, Oceanside and Neskowin and their environs. She gained the greatest percentage of votes in the Wheeler precient with 68 percent of the vote.


Baertlein carried the rest of the county. His strongest showing, by percentage, was in the east side of Tillamook, where he carried 85 percent. He gained 84 percent in the Maple Leaf precicent, just north of Tillamook.


There were 39 write-ins. In the countywide race for sheriff, incumbent Sheriff Andy Long won with 86 percent of the vote (9,500 votes). Challenger Bill Spidal got 13 percent (1,433

votes). There were 64 write-ins. “I enjoyed running and appreciated the votes and wish Andy the best,” Spidal told the Headlight Herald, “and “I’m hopeful with the election over we will focus on the domestic violence crisis in Tillamook County. The WRC do a great job, but it's up to the criminal justice system to protect these women. Many want me to run for the Nehalem Bay Fire and Rescue District Board,” Spidal said, “because the Facebook has over 4,000 people wanting tsunami sirens in Tillamook County.” The “Save Our Sirens” Facebook page actually has 175 “likes.”

larger-than-expected crowd attended the 16th annual Veterans’ Day celebration at the Tillamook Air Museum. “We set out chairs for 300,” USMC Col. Bill Hatton, the county Veterans’ Service Officer, said. “It should have been at least 350.” Opened and closed by the Coast Guard’s color guard and the Clan Macleay Pipe Band from Portland, the ceremony included performances by the Tillamook Community Band, TAPA members performing selections from their “Americana” show last year, and a joint chorus from Tillamook High School and the Tillamook Community

Chorus, singing the “theme songs” of the various armed services — Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. “It’s a long-standing tradition to recognize our servicemen through their songs,” Hatton said. This year’s event specifically honored veterans of the Korean War, “the Forgotten War” it’s been called, and local veterans Don Adams and John Sollman recounted their experiences in that conflict. Both served in the Navy. Among the local dignitaries in attendance were State Sen. Betsy Johnson, State Rep. Deborah Boone, Nehalem Mayor Shirley Kalkhoven, Manzanita Mayor Garry Bullard, Tillamook Mayor Suzanne Weber, and County Commissioner Mark Labhart.

The Schooner to offer free meal BY JOSIAH DARR

NETARTS – The Schooner Restaurant is going above and beyond the call of duty this Thanksgiving. Instead of locking up and taking the day to spend time with family and friends, the Schooner is flinging its doors wide open and welcoming as many people as possible. Some of those patrons will be there for a safe and warm place for a Thanksgiving meal they may not have gotten otherwise; others will be


raising money for the Tillamook Food Bank. “Every other year for the last seven years we’ve had a charity dinner on Thanksgiving open to people who’d like to get a hot meal,” said Schooner co-owner Tommy Flood. “With our ovens, we’ve been able to go way over the top with the meal.” On years when the Schooner isn’t hosting a free meal for the public, the restaurant has been available to the families of the employees.

Saturday’s “Rockaway 2 Rockaway” benefit dinner and concert raised a total of $4,667.27 at the door in three hours. “Not bad for a little beach town,” one observer commented. Over 20 Neah-Kah-Nie students helped staff the event -- many of them from the school’s Future Business Leaders organization (FBLA) – along with volunteers from the Rockaway Lions Club and Rockaway Beach Chamber of Commerce. “We served 27 gallons of clam chowder and probably more of chili,” the Chamber’s Kristine Hayes said. “Every cupcake and drop of ice cream was eaten.” All the food was donated. An estimated 300 people attended the event – in shifts, because the Community Room at Rockaway Beach City Hall couldn’t hold that many at one time. Food, cider, coffee, tea and desserts were out in the lobby to allow more room for attendees. The band COASTER – Jane Dunkin from Nehalem, Ken Hardy from Manzanita, Clint Smith from Idaville, and Joe Wrabek from Garibaldi – played for the entire event. “One hundred percent of the money goes directly to a relief of the people of Rockaway Beach, New York,” Hayes said. “We will continue to take money for the next 60 days at any US Bank under ‘Rockaway to Rockaway.’ It will be listed in the Nation Donation Base,” she said. Donations can also be sent directly to the US Bank branch in Rockaway Beach, Oregon (P.O. Box 95, Rockaway Beach, OR 97136). 227 people signed the guest book at the event; the guest book, along with a history of Rockaway Beach, Oregon, will be mailed to Rockaway Beach, New York, Hayes said. All in all, not bad for a little beach town, indeed.

93 acres of former Jesuit sanctuary for sale BY JOSIAH DARR

PACIFIC CITY – On of the most pristine, scenic and unique properties in Tillamook County is on the auction block. Nestucca Sanctuary, a former Jesuit retreat facility near Pacific City will be auctioned through Realty Marketing/Northwest December 5. Opening bids start at $1,295,000. This is the first time the property has been on the market since it was developed by the Jesuits 73 years ago. The former Jesuit retreat facility with lodge and dormitory is located on a forested 93acre parcel, the northernmost headland in the Nestucca Bay, overlooking the bay to the east, Pacific City to the north and the ocean to the west. It includes over a mile of shoreline. The property was developed in 1938-1939 by the Jesuits as a summer retreat location, in order to serve the Jesuit Novitiate of St. Francis Xavier, located in Sheridan, Oregon. “Essentially it was a summer seminary school and a great place for our seminary students to get away and be out in the nature,” said Father Michael Tyrrell, who's the Treasurer of the Jesuits of the Oregon Province. In the 1980's, the facility and the property was put under the supervision of Father Andy Dufner. Dufner opened the facility to a multitude of groups and organizations as a retreat and a location where they could escape to the serenity of the area. “The facility and property were used by everything from ecology groups to natural beauty groups and because it was so rustic and it took a little elbow grease to stay here, a group could stay there for maybe $15 a night instead of $100 a night at other places,” Father Tyrrell said. Groups ranging from Buddhist groups to Catholic organizations to college students were said to have stayed at the facility while Father Dufner ran it until his passing in 2005 from

cancer. “After Father Dufner died, it wasn't financially viable to continue using the facility as it had been, and ultimately it was closed four year ago,” said Father Tyrrell. “All the money we receive from the sale will go to our future seminary programs.” The Catholic Church did try to work with the Nature Conservancy to arrange a purchase, but the price the Conservancy was willing to pay was far less than the assessed value of the property. “Sometimes business isn't very nice,” Father Tyrrell said. Currently the published reserve price for the property and the facility in the sealed bid auction is $1,295,000. “The Nestucca Sanctuary, located next to the Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge, has a lodge complex and over a mile of shoreline along what is considered to be one of the crown jewels of Oregon’s north coast, providing opportunity to acquire a Pacific Northwest The property to be auctioned is outline at the head of the Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge. legacy property having both seclusion and significant conservation value” according to John Rosenthal, president of Realty Marketing/Northwest. “The Jesuits of the Oregon Province have decided to sell    this very special property at auction, so that it may be exposed to a broad range of buyers who might benefit by its spectacular setting, proximity to Portland and potential opportunity for redevelopment as private camp, retreat, for educational uses or commercial recreation,” says William Lockyear, Realty Marketing/Northwest. Chief Financial Officer. There is approximately 1.1 million board feet of timber, providing near-term cash flow and long-term asset growth. Sealed bids are due December 5, 2012. For additional information, please contact Marti Cohn at “It's our hope that whoever does buy the retreat will keep it as a natural site,” Father Tyrrell added.

The outcomes in both county-wide races roughly mirrored the responses in the Headlight Herald’s admittedly unscientific impromptu online poll. The poll showed Baertlein winning the commissioner’s race, and Long the sheriff’s (by a large margin). State legislative races in Tillamook County got confusing because of redistricting. Redistricting split the county in half; the south half of the county — all the unincorporated area south and west of the city of Tillamook — wound up in new state House and Senate districts. House District 10 is mostly Lincoln County, and both the Republican and Democratic candidates were from Lincoln County. Senate District 5 stretches all the way to Coos Bay and North Bend, and the candidates were from Coos Bay and North Bend. Adding to the confusion, not one of the candidates in the “South County” districts — Democrat or Republican, House or Senate — was an incumbent. All were new, and three of the four hadn’t held state office before. Arnie Roblan, the Democratic candidate for State Senator, had been the State Representative from Coos Bay. Roblan won the State Senate race; district-wide, he got 55.09 percent (29,116) to Republican Scott Roberts’ 44.75 percent (23,653). Democrat David Gomberg won the State House seat, 59.68 percent (15,278) to Republican Jerome Grant’s 40.17 percent (10,283). Democrats Roblan and Gomberg also won in Tillamook County, though by narrower margins. Roblan got only 51.20 percent, and Gomberg 52.72 percent. The pro-Democrat votes were concentrated in precincts along the coast, including Oceanside, Netarts, Pacific City, and Neskowin and their environs. Inland, voters favored the Republicans. In Hebo, however, they voted for Republican Roberts for Senate

and Democrat Gomberg for state House. The north half of Tillamook County, including all seven incorporated cities, is still part of Senate District 16, represented by State Sen. Betsy Johnson (who wasn’t up for election this year) and House District 32, represented by Rep. Deborah Boone (who was). Most of the district’s population is in Clatsop County. Boone won re-election handily, with 68.49 percent of the vote district-wide (17,914 votes) and 68.95 percent of the vote in Tillamook County (4978 votes). Boone carried every precinct in North County. Boone, a Democrat from Cannon Beach, was opposed by Constitution Party candidate Jim Welsh, from Manzanita, and Libertarian Perry Roll, from Astoria. There was no Republican candidate. Welsh, who won the Republican primary in House District 32 becamse the Constitution Party candidate, and the state GOP didn’t run a replacement candidate. Welsh got 25.68 percent of the vote district-wide (25.65 percent in Tillamook County) and Roll got 5.39 percent district-wide (4.99 percent in Tillamook County). The only county-wide ballot measure — to give the Tillamook Soil & Water Conservation District a tax base — passed 57 percent to 43 percent (6372 to 4747). The district will begin collecting its six cents per $1,000 in July 2013. The more highly publicized measure to create a Pioneer Water District between Bay City and Tillamook failed. After the Headlight Herald broke the story about “irregularities” in mapping — including in the district people who should have been out, and leaving out some who were supposed to be in — proponents of the proposed new water district publicly recommended a “no” vote on their own measure. They got it. 88 percent (248 voters) said “no.”

Opponents pan Pacific City wave energy site at public meeting

More than 50 people attended the Tillamook County Futures Council’s public workshop on the Territorial Sea Plan amendments held Thursday, Nov. 8, at the Officer’s Mess building at the Port of Tillamook Bay. Four years in preparation, the amendments proposed by the state mark off areas in Oregon’s “territorial sea” – the 1,260 square miles of ocean between the shoreline and three miles out – where wave energy would be allowed to be developed. The process was quiet until specific wave energy development sites were proposed, beginning in September of this year. One of those sites is offshore of Pacific City and Neskowin, in Tillamook County. The state’s Territorial Sea Plan Advisory Committee (TSPAC) scheduled just three public meetings on the plan amendments – and the areas proposed for wave energy development – just days before the TSPAC was supposed to make its recommendations to

the state Land Conservation & Development Commission when that body meets in McMinnville (November 15). None of the scheduled meetings was in Tillamook County. (They were in Astoria, Newport, and North Bend.) That prompted the Futures Council to schedule its own public workshop. At the meeting, speakers offered background and opinions on the plan and process. Members of the panel included David Yamamoto from Pacific City (one of the “citizen” representatives on TSPAC), Lincoln County commissioner Terry Thompson, executive director Jason Busch of the non-profit Oregon Wave Energy Trust, Newport city councilmember David Allen, and Tillamook PUD board member Doug Olson, who is also president of the Oregon PUD Association. Thompson and Allen also serve on the Ocean Policy Advisory Committee, a separate (and older) state agency which is also making recommendations to LCDC. Richard Whitman, the governor’s Natural Resource Policy Director, had

been invited to the Tillamook workshop but did not attend. Attendees at the workshop were less concerned about the Territorial Sea Plan amendments themselves than the inclusion of the Pacific City/Neskowin development site. Local homeowners and property owners, and fishermen, including members of two fishermen’s organizations, FACT and the Pacific Dorymen’s Association, objected to the inclusion. “It’s going to displace fishermen and shorebased jobs,” charged commercial fisherman Bob Browning, who serves on the Garibaldi Port Commission. The site, he said, trades “proven jobs for something not proven.” Others touted the “special qualities” of the area, scenic and otherwise. “There are just some places where we should not have development,” suggested Pacific City homeowner Larry Rouse. “We can work with developers,” outgoing FACT cochair Linda Buell said. “But to pick sites before you have the technology doesn’t make

Former county commissioner and state legislator Paul Hanneman speaks at Futures Council workshop meeting on wave energy.

sense.” Many objected to the haste with which the decision was being made. “The public is not being given adequate opportunity to (give) meaningful input,” Charlie Seko from Neskowin said. “The timeline is somewhat arbitrary. It needs

to be stretched out.” Copies of the plan and maps should be in local libraries, Jacqueline Weyland suggested. “South Tillamook County is no longer represented in Salem by people familiar with the area,” noted Pacific City realtor Barb Taylor. “It made a small area fair game.” “The issue is not new to us,” said Paul Hanneman, cochair of the Dorymen’s Association and himself a former state legislator. “We produced our map and records,” he said. “This looks like a reprisal for something we’ve done in the past.” “I detect a common theme,” commented Roy Hansen from Pacific City. “Nobody in this area wants it.” State Senator Betsy Johnson thanked the Futures Council for holding the meeting. “Many people weren’t aware of the process until it hit home,” she

said. “I intend to call (Richard) Whitman” (the governor’s representative, who was not at the meeting). “Citizens feel rushed. Ordinary folks need more time.” Comment forms turned in by attendees showed 77% “strongly opposed” to including the Pacific City/Neskowin site. The comment forms, plus a DVD of the meeting, were to be taken to state LCDC in advance of their meeting in McMinnville Nov. 15. OPAC, for its part, will be holding a meeting of its own on December 4 (time not yet specified), and it will be in Tillamook County – again, at the Port of Tillamook Bay. OPAC has been directed to come up with a decision by the beginning of January, David Allen told the crowd.

Hospice to light up Holiday Tree Nov. 19 Adventist Health/Hospice serving will hold the holiday tree lighting ceremony that kicks off its annual Light Up a Life fundraising campaign on Monday, Nov. 19. Featuring special music by the kindergarten class of Little Clipper School and brief remarks about hospice services, this celebration will take place at noon at the Tillamook County Creamery Association visitors center (Cheese Factory). Light up a Life, Hospice’s only public fundraiser, officially starts with the inserts mailed with the Tillamook PUD bills in October and runs through the Reading of the Names ceremony that will be held this year on Monday, January 7, 2013. A donation during this time, made in memory of someone


who has died, or in honor of someone still living, helps ensure that hospice care is available to anyone in our community with a terminal illness. Donations may be made by mail or in person at the Hospice office, located at 1015 Third Street in Tillamook, and online at Those who contribute $10 or more may receive a sand dollar, lovingly decorated by our Hospice volunteers to commemorate the honored individual. The sand dollar ornaments will be available

the Food Bank this year,” Flood said. “It’s great to donate food to the Food Bank, but if you can give them money, they can do so much more with it and provide for so many more people.” “The vendors are great about donating food and things we need for the dinner,” Flood added. “At this point we're guessing it will be so large this year we’ll be scrambling and hitting up friends just to find places to cook enough food for everyone, but that’s OK with us. This an excellent opportunity to do two things at once – donate to a great cause and feed the hungry.” For more information on how you can get involved, contact the Schooner Restaurant at 503-815-9900.

last revision in 1996. McCall said that curbside recycling pickups (already implemented in the city of Tillamook) are being considered for south Tillamook County, via Nestucca Valley Sanitary Service, hopefully beginning next summer. Among the short-term goals of the new plan is upgrading the system to accept co-mingled recyclables. Also under consideration is increasing the frequency of hazardous-waste drop-offs. The chamber is electing officers for 2013. Ballots are due by November 16th. Candidates are Merrianne Hoffman for president, Michael Rech for vice president, Gloria Scullin for secretary, and Frances Accuntius for treasurer. Christmas tree lighting will take place on December 8th, at Brooten Road and Pacific Ave in Pacific City.

But after last Thanksgiving when it was open to the public, a new plan was hatched. “Last year we decided to host the free meal, but decided to take donations for the Oregon Food Bank Tillamook County Services,” Flood said. “We ended up having many generous people well overpay for the meal, and when it was all over, we’d raised over $1,500 for the Food Bank. “I talked to my business partner about doing this every year, and we decided it was going to be a great idea.” This Thanksgiving the Schooner will open at noon, but the regular staff won't all be in attendance. Instead, volunteer staff will be running the show. Some will be regular Schooner employees simply trying to help out, while others will be people from the community. Besides cooking and and serving food, many volunteers have also committed to pick up people who need rides to the Schooner. “We’re hoping to raise somewhere around $3,000 for

out Tillamook each year. As one appreciative family member shared recently, “The hospice team listened to me, accommodated my concerns and stepped in beside me to share my burden of care. Now it feels like they are part of my family.” For more information, call the Tillamook Hospice office at 503-815-2486.

A hundred dollars spent locally will be circulated an average of six times: you’ll be supporting local business owners and their employees. If those businesses grow, they’ll be able to employ more local people. The owners and employees of those businesses use your shopping dollars to make their mortgage payments, pay rent, buy groceries, buy shoes for their kids, pay their PUD bills, and purchase gas for their vehicles, which is pumped by local people. They use your shopping dollars to donate to the food bank, and adopt needy families for holiday food baskets and to buy presents for their own families. They go out to eat in local restaurants and tip their servers, who in turn spend that money on their bills. The money you spend locally circulates and the entire community benefits. Every dollar that we spend we are investing; wouldn’t you rather invest in your neighbors than strangers in another state? Your shopping dollars can and do make the difference between a local business succeeding or going bankrupt, and a local business owner paying their bills, or losing their house. That is the power of your dollar. Shop locally because it is the right thing to do. You won’t be disappointed. There are wonderful businesses in our area that offer a broad range of gifts, including one-of-a-kind items that you couldn’t find anywhere else. Linda Machuta, at Latimer Quilt and Textile noted, “Anyone can buy mass produced items at Target, that money leaves our community and

never comes back.” Whereas, you can find unique, affordable hand-made gifts at Latimer Quilt Mary Faith Bell and TexEditor tile, as well as fabulous original art, quilts and tapestries, heirloom gifts that your family would treasure for generations. Your purchase supports the museum, a community asset that draws visitors from far and wide; as well as supporting the artisans and craftspeople that consign there. The Pelican Pub and Brewery, a thriving concern in Pacific City and an economic driver in Tillamook County recently took over Five Rivers coffee roasters in Tillamook, across 101 from the cheese factory. Why not buy a pound of award-winning coffee beans roasted on site for the coffee lovers on your list this year? It is a more personal gift than mass-produced coffee, the price and quality are comparable, and you’re supporting the local economy. I loved doing the research for this feature. I learned that Anderson Florist is also your old-fashioned hometown toy store. They have gorgeous retro tricycles in their window that made me wish I had a young child to buy for. I learned that Sunflower Flats is also a gallery for local artists, and they have a great collection of greeting cards. I learned that Salon Coquillage uses all organic natural ingredients, including hair color, and the shop is full of original art. Speaking of local businesses, the Headlight Herald is a local business, and we appreciate your patronage. Thank you to all of our advertisers and subscribers: you are the reason we’re here. Check out the businesses featured in this issue and consider spending your shopping dollars in Tillamook County. Let’s invest in each other for Christmas.

READERS’ OPEN FORUM What happened to toughness? How history repeats itself: A whole army could not defeat Petraeus, but it only took one woman to bring him down. Remember the story of Sampson? A group of politicians in Washington can make it harder to do business, but no group can stop the American spirit to achieve. Whatever happened to American toughness? Roger Tracey Beaver

Will FEMA help Sandy survivors? Americans view companies and their products by their “track record.” A requested review of FEMA, for a needed overhaul, has been ignored. Oregonians know firsthand the slow, ineffective, tax eating abuse this organization has exercised in the past. Sadly, the east coast will now realize what we’ve known since the 100year flood of 1996. Katrina victims learned the degrading disappointment of FEMA mishandling of an emergency. We’ve survived many storms of all destructive types to witness good people band together with respect, kindness and determination with colossal restoration to normalcy while waiting for FEMA to take action. We survived, as will our eastern neighbors, and be stronger and better citizens for it. The question for our eastern friends isn’t whether they will survive the destruction, but whether they will survive FEMA. Jeannie Ferguson Nehalem

Students donate blood in memory of David Cheney I sponsored a blood drive Wednesday, Oct. 24, at the United Methodist Church in honor of David Cheney. I thought I would send a letter to thank all of you who helped me and talk about what a great experience it was. I would like to tell my mom Gayle Lawlis and my close friends Leslie Holmen and Sue Strohmaier how much I appreciate their help and support with the blood drive. I also would like to thank Joanne Thompson for handling all the announcements and questions at the high school; you are awesome! Thank you to the United Methodist Church for letting us have the drive there and also to Dee Upton for sending out emails to all of School District 9 and getting a few more donors at the end of the day (Outdoor School kids, that’s you). But my biggest thank you goes to the people who came out and donated blood, especially all of the students. These kids were what made a difference for me through this whole experience; they were so brave. One girl said she kept thinking of David when they took her blood so she could get through it. These kids are our future blood donors and every time they donate blood they will save a life. One young girl,

Mackenzie Cook, gave a double red blood donation, which is so cool! Two girls we had to turn away because their weight was below the guideline; but we appreciate that they came and tried. They were disappointed they couldn’t give. And last but not least, Chris Jacobs came with 10 minutes to spare and gave blood after football practice. I am proud of all the kids who gave blood. I hope in the future you decide to keep on giving in honor of David Cheney because in another six weeks or so I will be calling some of you to see if you want to come along to donate with me at the next blood drive (that means you Alexis). Never give up! Kelly Hiatt Tillamook

Election complaint a ‘smokescreen’ Just a few words, I believe Mr. Spidal needs to be a little more informed about legal matters, and the character of Andy Long. First of all if he knew anything about the man he would realize he would never break the law. He has been involved in Sheriff elections for over 20 years and has seen how it is handled. He also knows that once a person is arrested, it is the courts and a jury of your peers who determines if you are guilty or not guilty. Not the arresting officer or the Sheriff. Or the District attorney. I believe our Secretary of State has enough on her plate to waste her time with frivolous accusations that are unfounded. You were not qualified to run for this position, and creating smoke screens was not going to change the outcome. Helen Wright Bay City

Lisa Phipps thanks supporters I would like to thank so many of you for all of your support and effort during the campaign. Although we did not win, there are other ways to measure success. During the campaign, we were able to bring people together from all over the county – whether it was to break bread, share ideas, or just learn more about what was happening. We were able to meet so many new people and grow our circle of friends. And, we were able to remind ourselves and everyone about all of the great things happening in this great place. Now that the elections are over, it is time for people to come together and work toward solutions. We have a lot of tough issues facing our county and, especially at this local level, it is critical that you stay involved. There is more to our responsibility to government than voting – important as that may be. In order for your elected officials to do the job right, they have to hear from you. Stay involved, make your voice heard, and love this great place. I was privileged to run for office and honored and

humbled by those who supported me. I hope everyone will now join me in wishing the best to Commissioner-elect Bill Baertlein. Lisa Phipps Tillamook

Thanks for electing Baertlein commissioner Thank you , thank you, thank you citizens of Tillamook for electing Bill Baertlein to the County Commissioner position! We voted early as we spend the winter in Arizona, so I was really delighted when we went online to find the election results. I think Bill will be an excellent and fair Commissioner. Congratulations to Bill and to our residents for a wise choice. Ruth Lehman Tillamook

Teens made Rockaway fundraiser a success Rockaway Beach Oregon to Rockaway Beach New York was a great success. As a volunteer, what really impressed me were the dozen young adults (teens) from the NeahKah-Nie School District who gave their Saturday to this event. I was amazed. Kristine Hayes and Rodney Breazile’s three daughters Selena, Ariel, and Isis arrived by 10 a.m. to help set up. They went to work without any instructions, as if they had done this a thousand times. I just assisted the girls. In the evening, the group of teens (most of them belong to Future Business Leaders of America) came in to help serve. At the end they put chairs and tables away and cleaned the hall. We older adults ,who were very tired, were very thankful for their help and seemingly endless energy. I don’t know all their names. Thank you NeahKah- Nie teens for a wonderful commitment to our community. Marilou Bowman Rockaway Beach

The impact of United Way October was United Way month in Tillamook County. It is the month that United Way campaigns for new funds to support its member agencies. As a member agency, Tillamook Bay Child Care Center would like to thank the community for its ongoing support of this important community agency. Tillamook Bay Child Care Center is just one of the member agencies that support children and their families. The funds that TBCCC receives from United Way assists families that could not otherwise afford to keep their children in a fun, safe, and educationally based environment while they work. These families work hard to pay their bills and make ends meet and your donations to United Way help to provide their children with a positive and supportive environment while they do so. Our staff and volunteers work hard to support children in learning something

new every day. They are excited about learning and excited to help their families, friends and neighbors. One only has to read our newspaper or look around town on any given day to be consistently reminded of the generosity of our small community. Businesses and schools help to raise funds for charitable causes. Families run ads to thank others for support in times of their greatest need. Non-profits train volunteers that provide regular support for their mission, vision and values. I believe all too often, as individuals, we think, “What do I know about helping with these different and sometimes overwhelming needs?” “I don’t have the time to help.” or “My small donation won’t help enough.” Giving to United Way takes very little time and has the potential to help a great number of people. If we all made small contributions, if we all to gave something, the cumulative effect would be great! I watch the Tillamook County United Way thermometers on the lawn of the courthouse with great interest to see how many will give just a small amount and see how great that cumulative effect can and will be. Eva Manderson, Executive Director Tillamook Bay Child Care Center

United Way supports chaplains The United Way began in 1887, when a priest, two ministers, a rabbi and a woman in Denver, Colorado saw a need to respond to the city’s welfare problems. Since then United Way has grown throughout our nation, even to Tillamook. The vision of Tillamook County United Way is to have a better community by caring for kids, strengthening families, assisting people in crisis, promoting self-sufficiency, health and wellness. Tillamook County United Way is an independent and locally controlled volunteer organization. The funds collected stay right here in Tillamook County. Tillamook County United Way provides support to the youngest of our citizens to the oldest through Healthy Start and Meals for Seniors. TCUW strengthens families through the YMCA, Tillamook County Food Bank and CARE. It also funds programs for our citizens with special needs through Faith in Action, Marie Mills and CASA. Tillamook County Public Safety Chaplains and Women’s Resource Center also benefit from TCUW funding. With funding from TCUW, we are able to provide compassionate care for citizens after traumatic incidents, whether it is a traffic fatality, a suicide, a rape or domestic violence. Thank you, Tillamook County United Way, for caring for our community! Together, we can make a difference! Carol & John Elms Tillamook County Chaplains Bay City

Businesses take hit during CRIMINAL CONVICTIONS Third Street construction BY JOSIAH DARR

The ongoing construction on Third Street in Tillamook has been an inconvenience for motorists to say the least. Some drivers use Third Street on a daily basis and have been forced to find new routes entirely or brave the uneven street under construction. But, the often forgotten victims of the street work are the three businesses located in the heart of the construction. E&E Auto Body, Tillamook Lanes and Franz Bakery Outlet are all affected by the construction in different ways, some to the point where they were almost forced out of business. “Because of the style of our business, we don’t need the constant drive through business,” said owner of E&E Auto Body Mike Ellerbroek. “But, we did have our neighboring business that’s leased from us, All Star Signs, move to a different location. That was a hit for us with the loss of rental income, but because of our style of business with insurance companies working with us, customers tend to come to us anyway. “It sure was a hassle for our customers though and I’m looking forward to this project being finished,” Ellerbroek added. While E&E isn’t completely dependent on drive-by traffic, a retail store like Franz Bakery Outlet is. According to store manager Terri Ann Stavens, the store was affected far more than some people realize. “Financially it has been as bad as 50 percent of our customers and cash down from

normal,” Stavens said. “Since the road has been paved the last few weeks, business has probably only been down about 35 percent. Luckily, we’ve had local support from the Cash Mob and families who’ve continued to come in knowing we need the help. If it hadn’t been for their generosity and loyalty we would have shut down. In fact, I’d really like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supported us.” Tillamook Lanes’ business has also taken a hit. “Anyone who doesn’t think this affects business is out of touch with how to run a business,” Tillamook Lanes owner Dennis Wilks said about the street construction. “When you have a bowling alley, a lottery business and a restaurant that serves lunch and dinner and no one is coming in, it hurts. Our

sales went from normal slow winter sales to almost nothing. It was so bad we almost went out of business. We wouldn’t have survived if it hadn’t been for Sterling Bank stepping up and working with us as well as the beginning of the league seasons.” As of now, Tillamook Lanes seems to be through the worst of it, with Third Street being paved again and set to open back up to two lanes in the next week or two, but Wilks says he doesn’t blame people for not coming out while the road was in such bad shape. “I can’t blame them for not coming out,” Wilks said. “The road was in horrible shape. The fact that PUD predicted this to only take a few months where we’d have to deal with this was far from realistic.”

Baertlein to stay on the board for Port, but leave the museum BY JOE WRABEK

The Headlight Herald caught county commissionerelect Bill Baertlein as he was about to go mushroom hunting with his wife. “I was told, ‘Take some time off and savor the moment,’” he said. “They said, ‘You almost have a mandate.’” (Baertlein won the commissioner’s race with 60% of the vote county-wide.) The campaign, he said, was “a stretch for my wife and me. We’d never been in a parade before. I have to give her credit for putting up with it.” Baertlein was scheduled to attend the Association of Oregon Counties conference this week. “They have a New Guy Day,” he said. Afterwards, “I’ll take time in December to spend as much time at the county as possible. I’ll spend a lot of time

percent owner” of the accounting business, Baertlein said. (She’s the “Phegley” in Baertlein & Phegley, CPAs.) The firm will probably have to hire more staff, he said. “It’ll be a major adjustment but I think we’re ready.” He intends to continue – for a while – on the Port of Tillamook Bay Commission, where he is currently the port commission’s president. “Legal counsel has said I can do this,” Baertlein said. (The port commission position is unpaid.) “There are really exciting things happening at the Port,” he said, “things I’ve started. I’ll eke out the six months as president and see how it goes.” He will be resigning from the Board of Directors of the Pioneer Museum, however. “The Museum gets money from the county.”

Pelican Pub Brewery

There are few people harder to shop for than the fishermen in your life. They have weird little gadgets and gizmos you can’t pronounce and of course to a fishermen, everything has to be completely precise making it Find everything a fisherman needs. even more difficult to get them something they’ll actually use. But with the help of Pat Gefre at Nestucca Valley Sporting Goods, you might be able get your fishermen exactly what they want and need. “We have everything that a normal tackle shop should have,� Gefre said. “But, I'd say the backbone of our business is the fact the we have fresh sand shrimp and good eggs for sale so fishermen can get what they need to be successful on the river.� Another huge part of Nestucca Valley's business is their shuttle service for drift boaters on the nearby Nestucca River. “At some point, everyone needs a shuttle around here and we’re happy to write out gift certificates for those shuttles,� Gefre laughed. If your favorite angler might not need a shuttle very often, there are still dozens of ways they will be happy to burn through a gift card at Nestucca Valley Sporting Goods. Between the custom store brand apparel, the top of the line fishing tackle and bait, and the new deli that provides fishermen a place to get a hot meal after a long cold day on the river, a quick call to Pat at Nestucca Valley Sporting Goods could easily simplify your Christmas shopping.

No summer on the Oregon Coast is complete without a trip to the Pelican Pub Brewery in Pacific City, but the Pub isn’t usually the first place that jumps into people’s minds when they think about Christmas gifts.

OBITUARIES Don Taylor Jr. The Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO) is mourning retired Deputy Don Barnett Taylor Jr. following his passing on Oct. 28, 2012. For 16 years, Don worked for the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office and DON served the comTAYLOR JR. munity of Tillamook County. Don retired in 2010 and he and his wife Marlene moved to Aurora, Colorado to enjoy their retirement among family and long-time friends. Don Barnett Taylor Jr. was born on Jan. 4, 1948 in Sioux City, Iowa to Francis and Don Taylor. Don was the oldest of 4 boys; Don, Dennis, Dana and Doug Taylor. Always a very patriotic person, Don had hoped to serve his country in the military, but medical issues prevented him from enlisting. Don graduated high school in 1966 and his work as a soil-testing technician brought him to Craig, Colo. in 1972. After arriving in Craig, Don began looking toward public safety as a way to serve his community and his country. Don was a volunteer firefighter and was hired by the Craig Police Department as a reserve police officer. In 1981, Don graduated the Colorado Law Enforcement Academy and worked for the Craig Police Department as a patrol officer, K9 handler and rose to the rank of Sergeant. While at the Craig Police Department, Don served as a field-training officer for then rookie, and now Moffat County Colorado Sheriff, Tim Jantz. “Don taught officers the compassion of the job,” said Sheriff Jantz. “Craig was a wild boomtown back then, and Don enjoyed wrestling around with people just as much as the next officer. But Don also kept a human point of view of people and he exemplified patience. If it wasn’t for Don Taylor, I wouldn’t be in law enforcement today.” Don Taylor left Colorado, and law enforcement, to attend the University of Oregon to become a counselor. However, the draw of “the job” was too great for him to ignore. In May of 1990, Don returned to police work when he was hired by Klamath County Sheriff’s Office, where he worked until 1994. It was while working there that Don met the love of his life, Marlene, his wife of 17 years. In October 1994, Don was hired by the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office as a Forest Deputy. One of Don’s duties was as the Search and Rescue Coordinator for the county. Under Don’s leadership, the TCSO Search and Rescue team grew to be a truly professional organization filled with dedicated volunteers. Don was well known throughout the Pacific Northwest in his capacity as a SAR Coordinator and his grant writing expertise provided much needed rescue equipment for volunteers throughout Tillamook County. Don also worked as the ATV Instructor for the county and hundreds of kids, parents, and public employees have had the pleasure of experiencing Don’s patience while learning to safely ride their ATV. Don was known to be tireless when it came to searching for missing and lost people. Don felt it important to search as diligently for strangers as one would for their own family members. This was what got Don out of bed and at the command post regardless of the time of day or night. Many people are alive today thanks to the efforts of Don Taylor. “Don Taylor was a true American he was a pleasure to work with. I am honored to have had the privilege of working with him for 16 years. I especially liked working with him on Search and Rescue, which was his passion. He was unmatched in his ability in Search and Rescue. He will be missed by many,” said Tillamook County Sheriff Andy Long. Don is survived by his wife Marlene Taylor and their children, Michelle Baumgart and husband Dwight Baumgart of Klamath Falls Oregon, Aaron Samsel and his wife Kyungmi Samsel of Quantico, VA and Don Samsel of Aurora, CO and brother-in-law Skip Norris and his wife Nancy of Santee, CA. Don is also survived by his grandchildren Zack, Ryan, Josh and Shane Baumgart,

Isabella and Regan Samsel. Don’s brothers Dennis and his wife Linda Taylor, Dana Taylor and Doug Taylor. Nephew Scott Taylor, Nieces Kimberly Taylor and Keisha, Greatnephews Draven, Cage, Blake, Jacob and Great-niece Hailey all of Sioux City, Iowa. A celebration of Don Taylor’s life will take place at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 17 at the Tillamook High School Auditorium and is open to the public. Please join us in remembering and paying respects to a true Tillamook County hero.

Rosalind Barnett Rosalind Joan Barnett was born Jan. 18, 1911, to Esther Barnett in London, England. She passed away Nov. 2, 2012, in Leighon-Sea, Essex, England, at the age of 101. After surviving a difficult childhood ROSALIND in a foster BARNETT home, she went to work at the post office at the age of 14. Her main companion during her childhood was an Airedale terrier named Benji. At age 25 she took her mother on holiday to a bed and breakfast named The Anchorage in Leigh-on-Sea. There she met Cyril Albert Rose, the son of the proprietors. Cyril and Joan were married Sept. 20, 1936, in St. Andrews Church, Kingsbury, London. Prior to the beginning of WWII, Joan delivered a baby girl under very severe conditions. She and her family survived the Blitz of London, extreme shortages, and rationing of food. Since their residence was by a park, it appeared to be the airport that the enemy was targeting. After spending one night in an air raid shelter, Joan vowed she would never to do it again. It would be better to try and survive in one’s own home. After all the windows in the family’s home were shattered, Joan, Cyril, and baby temporarily moved to North Wales where Cyril continued to be employed by the Ministry of Food. Joan enjoyed making friends with everyone. She liked to bicycle, once cycling 50 miles to meet Cyril when they were courting. She attributed her long life to working hard and walking three times a day. She enjoyed watching and listening to football (soccer) matches and piano competitions. Her favorite movie was Titanic. Joan is survived by daughter, Mary Rose Lisik and sonin-law Andrew Lisik of Tillamook; son, David Rose Barnet and daughter-in-law Edith Mitchell of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada; grandson, Andrew Walker and wife Gayle Walker of Sheridan, granddaughter, Rosalind Joan Edwards and husband Paul Edwards of Tillamook; grandson, Halley Barnet of Paris, France; granddaughter, Frances Barnet of Australia; grandson, Thomas Barnet of Montreal, Quebec, Canada;

great-granddaughters, Kirsten and Bethany Walker of Sheridan; and great-grandsons, Jacob and Jason Edwards of Tillamook. Joan’s favorite song was “Something Good” from the Sound of Music: ”For here you are standing there loving me, whether or not you should. So somewhere in my youth or childhood, I must have done something good.”

Missing mentally ill man found after three months BY MARY FAITH BELL

PACIFIC CITY – A young man who disappeared from Pacific City July 22 and had been missing for over three months returned home safely November 7. The young man disappeared from Pacific City, where his family was gathered for a family reunion. He celebrated his 20th birthday with his family on July 21, and on July 22 he disappeared. On July 25, the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office responded to the report of a missing 20-year-old mentally ill man, Jacob Brokaw. Jacob has adult onset schizophrenia. He was a “normal, brilliant kid “ said his mom, Lisa Brokaw, until he was 17. That’s when he was diagnosed with schizophrenia. Jacob was not taking his medications when he disappeared. “One of the ways the disease manifests itself is that people don’t want to take their medications,” said Lisa Brokaw. “They think they don’t need them.” Jacob’s family had no idea where he would have gone, although he told his grandma he was going to swim out in the ocean and catch fish with his hands. He told someone else he was going to walk to California. He told another relative that he was going to walk home to Salem. Because of Jacob’s illness he says a lot of irrational things, according to his mom, and no one took him literally when he said he was leaving. No one saw him go. Jacob’s family believed that he had about $40 in birthday money with him, and a backpack. He was wearing sneakers with holes. “We were really scared because he’s mentally unstable,” said Lisa. “He can do unsafe things because he thinks he has special powers.” The Sheriff’s Office looked for Jacob for months. They received several possible sightings of Jacob, none of which resulted in locating him. “The Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office was a great support to us,” said Lisa. “They provided a great service to our family. And we want to personally thank Deputy Dean Burdick. He went above and beyond the call of duty. He called us regularly, he kept working to try to find Jacob, and he even went out on his days off and put up missing

person posters. We could tell that it meant something to him personally, he really wanted to help find our son.” For three and JACOB a half months BROKAW Lisa had no idea where her son might be, or if he was still alive. “It was horrible,” she said. “As a mom, not knowing, every day was a very hard struggle. My husband had to make me quit watching the news, because it seemed like every person who went missing was found dead.” On Nov. 7 Lisa was at work when she got a text from her niece: “ Jacob’s at your mom’s house.” After three and a half months Jacob turned up at his grandmother’s house in Salem, skinny and disoriented, “very disorganized in his thinking” said his mom, but safe, unharmed. As for where he had been, Jacob told his mom that he “hitchhiked to Eureka where he met a man named Ken, who gave him a ride to Seattle, where he met a man named Ron. Then he stayed in Seattle and became a Kung-Fu master.” Lisa says she may never know what he was up to for those months, but it is clear that someone, or several people, helped her son. He returned home with different clothes than the ones he left in, and in his pants pocket she found a bus ticket from Seattle to Salem. Someone paid for him to ride the bus home. Jacob is now home with his mom and dad. They’ve enrolled him in a yearlong treatment program, where he’ll have a chance to get back on his medications and become stable again. “It’s a miracle that he made it home and he’s OK,” said Lisa. “We’re very thankful to have a happy ending to our story.”

The family of Gerry Sherin would like to thank all who showed their love and concern during Gerry’s recent illness and passing. The cards, phone calls, prayers and flowers all meant so much. She was a faithful servant of God and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. H23540

Fall chinook season is in full swing and the fishing is better than last year.


(from left) Big Dave Manners teammed up with his good buddy Nick Laviolette to hook into these two beauties. The left is a massive hen chinook salmon, while the smaller fish on the right is an early winter steelhead. Both fish grabbed a backtrolled K16 Kwikfish on the Kilchis River.

Depending on who you ask, Tillamook area fall chinook season has been very good or very slow this year. So far, the Bay was exceptional early in September with multiple days where anglers were itching to get a herring in the water. Fishing was so hot it seemed like every herring that went down was gobbled up by a salmon. The chinook were in and biting, leading many anglers to believe the remainder of the season would follow suit. But then, like someone flipped the “off� switch, the bite in the Bay slowed to a crawl. That lull in the action had some anglers worried. There was a small splattering of chinook in the tidewater rapidly turning dark and the coho that typically are jumping all over the West Channel in Tillamook Bay were nowhere to be found. Suddenly there was good reason to worry. But, like it so often does here in Tillmaook County, the rain came and the fish came with it. Fish were in the rivers and the Bay, and it seemed like things were back on schedule. “In October we got about 20 inches of rain and that changed everything,� said Trash River Fish Hatchery Supervisor Jim Skaar. “At this point in the season, we’ve had 917 chinook return to the Trask River Hatchery. That puts us ahead of the 500 to 600 chinook we had at this same point last year. “Basically what happened was we got rain and the fish came.� While the overall chinook run this season seems to be

doing better than last year, the coho run is way down this year. “So far we’ve collected 622 coho,� Skaar said. “That’s about 1,400 less than last year at the same point and way down from the over 4,000 we’d gotten the previous two years. But, we expected a down year.� Fortunately for the fishermen and the local fishing guides, the chinook run has been enough to keep them busy, “I’d say this year’s fishing has been at least as good as last year and much better than it had been the previous years before that,� said local fishing guide and operator of Big Dave's Fishing Adventures, Dave Manners. “I’m probably averaging somewhere between three and nine bites a day fishing in the river when the water is in shape. That usually lends itself to some pretty good days and a lot of happy fishermen.� Besides the numbers beinggood enough for Manners to keep clients excited to fish, the size of the fish he’s been catching have also been worth getting excited about. “My customers have caught a lot more big fish this season,� Manners said. “It used to be that the new 50-pounder was only a 40 or 45-pounder, but we’ve seen some very, very big fish this year. It feels really good to see fish of that caliber.� While some of these larger than average fish are hatchery raised chinook, many of them are from wild stock and Skaar thinks that the hatchery fish aren’t the only ones doing well this season. “We’ve seen a lot of wild

fish this year,� Skaar said. “It seems like the hatchery component survived well this year from what we’ve seen and heard, I guess the wild fish are doing very well too.� Skaar noted that just because the hatchery has collected 917 chinook doesn’t mean that’s all the fish that have gone up the river. On the contrary, he noted that there are huge numbers of fish that make it up river to their spawning grounds never to be caught or counted. “It appears to be a fairly strong run overall this season,� Skaar said. “Last year we collected a total of 1,400 fish through January and I don’t see us falling short of that this year.�

Tillamook County fall athletes have wrapped up their seasons. Some teams did better than they expected while others fell a tad short of their hopes. Regardless of whether or not a team lived up to their expectations, there were some exceptional individual efforts this season. Efforts that were so great, they were recognized with All League honors. Northwest League Volleyball From Neah-Kah-Nie there was one player who received recognition for an excellent season. That was Pirate senior Rachael O'Quinn. O'Quinn was named to the All Northwest League Second Team. She finished her final season as a Pirate with 110 kills and 42 blocks on the year. She was also named at her team’s Defensive and Offensive Player of the Year. For the Nestucca Bobcats volleyball team it was Jasmine Boisa who was named as the First Team All-League libero. Boisa has been recognized many times before. She was a Second Team player last year and Honorable Mention as a sophomore. While Boisa was the only Bobcat receiving All League honors, the Bobcats did recognize many of their players with team awards. The Bobcats named freshman middle hitter Mia Dorsey as the team’s Most Improved Player of the year. They also named freshman Willow Wood as the Rookie of the Year. It was no surprise that the First Team All League libero Jasmine Boisa was named the team’s Defensive Player of the Year by her teammates. After an excellent season on the offensive side of the net, junior middle hitter Trisha Hopkins wasn’t a surprise as the Offensive Player of the Year for the Lady ‘Cats. A final bright spot for the Bobcats volleyball team was that their team was No. 4 in the state in GPA with 3.69 combined. Cowapa League Volleyball The Lady Cheesemakers’ season ended in disarray this year, landing them in the fourth and final playoff spot coming out of the Cowapa League. Due to the league standings, the Lady Cheesemakers had to travel to Hidden Valley where they lost their playoff game to the Mustangs. Despite the season not ending anything like what the team hoped for when the season started, three of the Cheesemakers were still recognized as being some of the top players in the Cowapa League. Defensive specialist Christine Schilliger was a leader all season for Tillamook and was chosen to the Cowapa Leagues First Team. Also chosen to the First Team was offensive threat Kennady Johnson. Selected as an All League Honorable Mention was senior Hailey Travis. Cowapa League Football I was very pleased with our selections for the 2012 Cowapa All-League Football Team,” said Tillamook Head Coach Matt Dickson. “The Cowapa League is very competitive. Banks and Scappoose are still playing in state playoffs and it’s a great

The athletes are challenged to work hard and be dedicated which is exactly what it takes to compete in our league. You wouldn’t want to be part of a league that was just okay. We have some of the best teams in the state. “That being said we have some of our best representing Tillamook. These guys are right along side the athletes from Scappoose, Banks, and Astoria. At the meeting a lot of great things were being said about Jacob, Brock, Marcus, Matt, and Ron. There is a lot of respect and admiration for what these football players did on the football field.” Named to the Cowapa All League Team from Tillamook was Marcus Cheney as an offensive guard, Jacob Wassmer at running back, Ron Allen at linebacker, Brock Lourenzo at linebacker and Matt Strang as Honorable Mention quarterback.

Black Friday sales and shopping mall mayhem can bring out the worst in people around the holidays, but every once in a while someone comes along and makes a selfless gesture that truly warms the heart. That's precisely what the Laviolette Family and LRL Construction have quietly been up to the last three years without ever asking for anything in return. “Last year the company donated 100 turkeys to the Food Bank so people could have a holiday meal,” said LRL Office Manager Mary Schmitz. “This year LRL donated 200 turkeys, 200 10pound bags of potatoes and another 200 cans of food to go along with it like green beans and corn. “I think the company does it simply because it's a good thing to do,” Schmitz added. To get a more tangible idea of just how much food that is, it's somewhere in the ballpark of 200 holiday boxes which

equal about 800 meals. Finanacially, it's no small task either. At Safeway a Butterball turkey is currently $1.49 per pound. If the average turkey is 14 pounds, the cost of the turkey alone is right around $4,172, not including the canned food or potatoes. “We've done this a few times before, but this is the first time anyone has ever asked to write about it,” said LRL owner Dan Laviolette. When asked what his motivation was to give so generously to the Tillamook County Food Banks, Laviolette's answer was quick and to the point. “There's a lot of people that don't get a chance go have a good hot meal,” Laviolette explained. “This is a great chance for me and my wife and kids to to reach out and help. Especially at Thanksgiving. “If we can just warm up a few people's lives even if we don't know them, it's good enough for us.”

Oregon Food Bank Tillamook County Services thanks LRL Construction for donating enough turkeys, potatoes, corn, and green beans to provide Thanksgiving Dinner to over 800 individuals in need throughout Tillamook County. H23533

This was asked of three individuals-a student, adjunct faculty and a community member. Their answers follow:

David Lindstrom MA

Adjunct Psychology Instructor

With the new building and up to date curriculum, TBCC is quickly being looked at as a symbol of the areas growth and hope for the future. Tillamook County has found itself in hard economic times, just like all rural Oregon counties. But, I don’t think it’s a stretch to say, that TBCC has helped the area maintain its hope in the future. One of the main reasons I love teaching at TBCC are the students. It seems like we don’t just get a slice of the cross sections of people who live in Tillamook County, we get the whole pie. A person would never know how varied our County is until they taught a class at TBCC. I’ve had students from both ends of the County and from every walk of life. The curriculum, staff, and atmosphere truly welcome any and all who want to better their lives.

Michael Ihnat


We’re very fortunate to have TBCC. Centrally located in the heart of Tillamook County, TBCC offers a broad range of college courses to students throughout the county. Whether you’re attending college for the first time or looking to continue or enhance your education, the small class sizes, the knowledgeable staff and down to earth caring instructors at TBCC help make attaining your educational goals a reality. With high unemployment and a historically poor economy more and more people are turning towards higher education making TBCC one of Tillamook County’s most valuable assets.

Neal Lemery


Like all of us, our young people need hope, opportunity, and love. TBCC offers everyone hope for the future, a place and permission to dream, and the opportunity to realize our own highest desires for ourselves, our family, and our community. When that door opens, we change the world.



Grow the Coast draws 125 growers BY MARY FAITH BELL

A hundred and twenty-five people attended Grow the Coast -- the north coast conference on growing food -- in Nehalem in early November. Grow the Coast was put on by Food Roots of Tillamook and Clatsop counties, and was designed to bring small farmers and food producers and people who are interested in the local food movement together to learn about a wide range of topics from pasture management for healthy animals, to the specifics of the new Farm Direct law that went into effect Jan. 1, 2012. Conference attendees heard from a professional couple from Washington, D.C., Lori and Steven Rutledge, who recently gave up university tenure and a law practice to try their hands at farming; there were classes on how to identify and forage for wild mushrooms; how to choose crops best suited to the north coast climate, and how to combat pests with organic solutions. Attendees learned about maximizing farm profitability, including lessons from Neskowin small farmer Carolina Lyddy, about how she has made her farm a profitable fulltime venture, to ideas for generating capitol to launch a new venture. In all, the conference offered a choice of 12 dynamic classes in three concurrent sessions, which kept class sizes small and allowed for interaction amongst growers and instructors. The vision of Food Roots is the revitalization of our regional food and farm economies to create a system where all families, regardless of income, have access to fresh, healthy food by supporting local food producers, local food processors and local markets. One of the cultural aims of Food Roots is to develop a community of food growers and producers in Tillamook and Clatsop counties who will support each other and grow together with the shared goal of feeding local people. Sharon Thornberry, of Oregon Food Bank, one of the conference keynote speakers said, “The energy and strength of a farming community coming together to feed themselves and others is without parallel.” Grow the Coast, the first local food conference of its kind, made a huge first step toward bringing together local small farmers and growers, many of whom had never met each other, to share not only knowledge and skills, but also wisdom and inspiration. Garry Stephenson, OSU’s small farms director, talked about how the small farms movement is thriving in Oregon: in 1990, Stephenson said, there were 12 farmers markets in Oregon; now there are 140. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms are selling directly to consumers, cutting out the middle men, and the new Farm Direct law allows small farmers to sell up to $20,000 of food that they grow and process, such as jams, jellies, syrups, and pickled vegetables directly to consumers without a license or inspection. This expands farmers’ options for income, use of abundant crops, and off-season sales. Additionally, the Poultry Bill includes a “1000 bird exemption” which


Above: 125 farmers and growers gathered at NCRD for the Grow the Coast food conference in Nehalem. Right: Dane Osis, Fort Stevens National Park Ranger teaches a group about wild mushroom foraging. allows small farmers to slaughter and sell directly to consumers up to 1000 poultry per year without licensing. “Small farms create healthy communities,” said Stephenson said, noting that farming was prominent in coastal communities until the mid-twentieth century. He quoted American writer and farmer Wendell Berry: “When going back makes sense, you’re going ahead.” Food Roots would like to build on the connections established at the Grow the Coast conference.

Thanksgiving recipes to fit the season With Thanksgiving right around the corner, here are a couple of seasonal recipes that you’ll be proud to serve. All three are make-ahead dishes that can be prepared a day or more in advance of the holiday meal. More technique than recipe, roasting yams whole in their skins concentrates the natural sugars and flavors in the yam,

so that added butter is unnecessary, and added sweetener is optional. Roasted yams are nutritious and delicious, easy to prepare, finish beautifully with real maple syrup and chopped pecans, and bear very little resemblance in either flavor of texture to canned yams. Another dish better made fresh is

cranberry sauce: easy as can be, only marginally more difficult than opening a can of cranberry sauce, but the difference in flavor is dramatic. Pumpkin cheesecake is an elegant special occasion dessert, rising head and shoulders above pumpkin pie. The recipe is not difficult -- the filling can be mixed up in your food processor --

but it must be made a day ahead and the right pans are essential; also, there are several steps in preparing the pans that will take your dessert making to a professional level. This cheesecake will wow your family and friends. It is something they will remember from year to year and look forward to. Skip the crust to simplify or if you have

Pumpkin Cheescake Crust (optional)


5 ounces graham crackers (or Arrowroot cookies for a gluten-free option)* 3 Tablespoons sugar 5 tablespoons melted Tillamook butter ½ teaspoon each ginger and cinnamon ¼ teaspoon cloves Blend in food processor until sandy.

1 ½ pounds (three 8-ounce packages) Philly cream cheese at room temperature 1 1/3 cup sugar Blend in food processor until smooth, scraping down sides a few times. Add ¼ teaspoon each: cloves, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and ½ teaspoon salt Blend and add ½ tablespoon lemon juice and 1 tablespoon vanilla. Blend and add 5 eggs, one at a time, while food processor is running. Add one 15-ounce can of pumpkin Blend until smooth. Scrape down sides and add ¾ cup heavy cream. Blend and pour into prepared pan. Put springform pan into larger pan in middle of oven. Pour hot water into larger pan at least to half-way. (Optional: in order to prevent the cheesecake from browning, add a foil "lid" by laying a piece of foil over the cheesecake and pinching/rolling the edges together with the edges of the foil bottom, to create a seal.) Bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours, or until set in the middle but still slightly

To prepare pan: use a 9 inch springform pan. Cut parchment paper to fit bottom and sides. Spray pan with spray oil and stick parchment to pan. If you're using a crust: press crumbs into pan evenly, using something flat (like the bottom of a measuring cup) to push them down. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden and fragrant. Cool. (Wash food processor.) Wrap pan in triple thickness of heavy duty long tin foil, so that foil reaches an inch or so above the sides of the pan. Find another flat bottom pan with at least 2 inch sides, like a roaster, that the springform pan will fit in. In clean food processor mix cheesecake filling in the following order.

wobbly. Remove from water bath, cool to room temperature and refrigerate overnight. The next day, remove sides of springform pan, and remove the parchment. You may serve the cake on the bottom of the pan. Alternately, to remove the bottom of the springform pan before serving the cheesecake, watch the video demonstration on

Special topping: 1 cup heavy whipping cream ½ cup Tillamook sour cream 1/3 cup brown sugar 1/8 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons real maple syrup. Whip ingredients until thick and fluffy, scraping bowl occasionally. Serve on cheesecake. *Gluten-free Arrowroot cookies can be purchased at most health food stores or specialty sections of grocery stores. Otherwise, skip the crust for a perfect gluten-free dessert.

Curb Appeal

gluten-free people in your party, but don’t skip the special whipped cream topping, it’s worth it. Check our video online:, where Mary Faith Bell and Al Wylder discuss these recipes and demonstrate the tricks involved in baking a perfect cheesecake.

Fresh Cranberry-orange Sauce One 12-ounce bag fresh cranberries, washed and picked through Zest from one orange (the orange peel and not the white pith beneath it, grated) 1 cup orange juice

1 cup sugar Simmer on medium low stirring occasionally for ½ hour, or until liquid is evaporated and sauce is thickened. Cool. Cover, refrigerate until served.

Roasted yams Scrub and poke skins of yams. Seal them in foil, put foil package in a pan or on a cookie sheet, bake at 350 until yams are soft though not mushy. Cool. Later/the next day, peel yams and slice them in a baking dish. Drizzle with real maple syrup and sprinkle with chopped pecans. Reheat.

Neskowin Valley School jumps into ocean studies Last week, Neskowin Valley School 6th and 7th graders experienced wave energy firsthand as they rode a Zodiac inflatable boat from Depoe Bay in search of the grey whales they had been studying in class. Lightning on the horizon prompted Whale Research Excursion captain Mike to turn the boat back to shore, and as they crested out of a deep trough three grey whales appeared before them, twisting their hulking bodies out of the water. “I was hoping they weren’t going to come up underneath the boat,” said Kevin Shluka, who accompanied the group. Student Josie Cannistra marveled, “That’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.” Their voyage was the latest in a series of direct outdoor experiences NVS students have enjoyed in this year’s study of the physics of the ocean. Two local partnerships, one with the Westwind Stewardship Group (WSG) and another with the Nestucca Valley Community Alliance, have given students direct exposure to the vast watery resource at their doorsteps. Each year, NVS students focus on one of three science areas, Physical Science, Earth Science and Life Science, part of a rotating curriculum designed to expose them to a range of scientific exploration. NVS Science Coordinator Katie Miesle is incorporating the ocean into lessons about force, energy and motion to address this year’s Physical Science focus. She taught the first of those lessons about waves, tides and currents from the beach at Westwind, where NVS 2nd-7th-graders camped overnight and observed the confluence of the Salmon River and the ocean. That trip, made possible through an ongoing Ocean Literacy Initiative at Westwind, marked the first of monthly exploratory field trips to local beaches to record details in field journals and make connections and predictions about wave energy. NVS students are also benefiting from


Neskowin Valley students use the beach as a science classroom.

a connection to the National Science Foundation’s Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI), an educational outreach program on the underwater cable stretching from Pacific City to volcanic vents hundreds of miles offshore. The Nestucca Valley Community Alliance, which hosted OOI presentations featuring Oregon State University and University of Washington scientists last year, offered local liaison volunteers Paul Carlson and Bill Busch to facilitate undersea studies at NVS. Last month Busch, a retired ocean paleontologist, came to NVS to narrate a video of the ocean floor where the cable was laid. Future plans to extend the study include field trips to research vessels when they dock in Newport and to the labs of OSU scientists engineering gliders and other measuring devices for the cables. NVS students also plan to create a replica of the undersea array as an art project at the end of the year. They will also incorporate their studies in their annual Invention Convention, held at the school in December. In October, a group of NVS students built remotely operated underwater vehicles at the Hatfield Marine Science Center, and the staff will enjoy a field trip to Hatfield for a Saturday conference about

undersea exploration and sea vents. NOAA chief scientist Dr. Stephen Hammond, who directs the VENTS program at Hatfield, is planning a visit to NVS this spring. NVS Head of School Julie Fiedler is thankful for the perfect storm of support from Westwind, the NVCA, and other agencies, which have made such comprehensive ocean study available to NVS students. “My personal fascination for the ocean is being fed right alongside that of the students. We are so lucky to benefit from groups and individuals who help us bring these studies alive.” Grants from the Wheeler and Autzen Foundations have brought new computer and projection equipment to the school for Internet research, including video and streaming data from the undersea cable arrays. “Our aim is to thoroughly acquaint our students to our amazing watershed, including the ocean,” said Fiedler. “Understanding where they live is a gift they will take with them wherever they go and spur them to understand other places in the world.” Students will continue their studies in ocean physics, including units on wind, weather and conservation. They will also produce a 2013 edition of their Field Guide to the Neskowin Valley Watershed to include entries on ocean animals and plants. Neskowin Valley School is a preschool8th-grade independent school located in South Tillamook County with a curriculum and environment that foster a desire for lifelong learning. NVS enjoys small class sizes, integration of subject matter, handson arts and sciences projects, an early, comprehensive approach to literacy, and individualized, varied approaches to learning. The school values outdoor and experiential learning and place-based projects that immerse students in the extensive natural areas of the Oregon Coast. To learn more visit

The tickets are $20.00 each and available at Mirror Image, Nehalem Lumber and The Pizza Gardens. Social hour will begin at 5:30 p.m., with buffet dinner at 6:30p.m. The proceeds go toward beautification efforts in downtown Nehalem and a portion of the money donated to Wheeler. Any questions contact Vicki Halverson at 503-368-7436. I would like to let you know that I was planning on the majority of this article to be about a really nice lady and her kids, but nothing bad happend, just could not get all the information needed in time for this posting, so please look next week. Our daughter showed me a new game to play out at Mohler to pass the time when your bored..(just make sure you’re going home right after this game.) Puddle splashing. She explained to me that you have to go from

one puddle to another and splash "jump" as hard as you can and get the water to get you wet as high as you can, so the one with the water splash marks the highest wins (or should I say gets soaked). Decided we had time to kill and we were heading home right after, so why not...She won since I’m taller and that’s really not fair unless I get down on my knees to make it even. Sorry no I took the defeat, you win. So if you see some people jumping in puddles over at Mohler it’s probably just us playing puddle splash. Give it a try sometime - makes you remember being a kid and not worrying if you get wet or dirty. Reminder: if you have Campbell’s soup labels or box tops, please drop them off at the Nehalem Elementary School or at The US Bank in Manzanita (finally got a box over there for them sorry for the inconvenience for anyone who was trying to drop them off). I’m still trying to find another location for a third drop off site, and will let you know if I find one. Don’t forget November 14th is National Pickle Day (our daughter’s favorite) and the 17th is Take a Hike Day, so grab a jar of pickles and take a hike somewhere. Any information out there send it to me at See you soon!

we will never know now. His wife said if he didn’t win - that’s that, he’s not going to try again. Maybe I would like the president to win by popular vote. Not sure I really like how the Electoral vote works. Anyway, looking (FORWARD) to more jobs opening up, bringing industries back to the U.S, public works jobs like building bridges, improving highways, money for disasters, etc. Working on bringing down the national debt is very important to we the people. After the Memorial service for Jaylen Jones, Saturday, November 3, 2012, everyone was invited to come to the Cape Meares Community Center for a potluck and time for remembering Jaylen. Jaylen was an active person in Cape Meares for many years. She was so good to take in animals of all kinds, especially cats, and care for them. At one

time she even had a tank where she kept injured seals. She was very knowledgeable growing herbs and plants and kept a very neat garden when her health permitted her to do so. She loved riding her bike, hiking, canoeing. She was so helpful to people and caring. She is missed by her many friends and relatives. Only eight more days until Thanksgiving. We will have a dinner here, but not many family members are able to be here this year. I’m thinking about trying one of those turkey dinners from Safeway or Fred Meyer. I know of people who have tried that and for a small group of people that would sure be an easier way to go. Probably no turkey leftovers, but we have chicken often and that will suffice No potluck is planned for Saturday, Nov. 24 at the Cape Meares Community Center. Thanksgiving is Nov. 22.

bunch of Garibaldians send a gigantic Coast Range fir tree down to generally treeless Sparks, Nevada, to use for a town Christmas tree. They’ve been doing the Christmas Tree Express since 1982, and taking the tree to Sparks since 1984. (The first couple of years, the tree went to Reno, but Reno ended up planting their own permanent Christmas tree.) For a while, the Christmas Tree Express was a Garibaldi Chamber of Commerce project, but after the Chamber folded, the event continued on. Sharon Stafford has been involved with the Christmas Tree Express since its inception—she says she’s one of only two left alive. Thanksgiving morning, logger David Stein and his son will fall the Chosen Tree, a crew from the Oregon Youth Authority binds the tree on a trailer for travel, and trucker Terry Freeman heads for Sparks with the tree the next day. (Terry’s been doing the transporting since 2001; before him, Barry Mamano did it 1997-2001, and before him, Don Averill.) In Sparks, Washoe County public works installs the tree in a big upended culvert downtown. The City of Sparks’ big Christmas tree lighting and parade is the first Saturday in

December (this year, that’s Dec. 1. A delegation from Garibaldi has gone to Sparks for their celebration every one of the 30 years the event’s gone on. They arrive Friday morning (Nov. 30), are feted at the Nugget casino Friday night before the tree lighting (Nugget owner John Ascuaga was one of the original ringleaders at the Sparks end), and are on a float in the parade the next day. The parade, Sharon said, is now the largest in Nevada. (Sparks also has a lake—an old gravel pit that filled up in the 1997 flood—and it’s got a boat, which also came from here. Sharon says they named it the “S.S. Garibaldi.” Sparks also sends a delegation up here every summer for Garibaldi Days.) The Garibaldians are flying down (they used to go in busses)—they reportedly have good deals on plane fare and (of course) on rooms at the Nugget. Want to be part of this? It’ll be fun. Call Sharon at 503/812-9123, or Dorothy Pierin at 971/570-6906 And the Garibaldi Food Pantry will be open Friday, Nov. 16, 10noon at the God’s Lighthouse church, 8th & Garibaldi Ave. (across from the Food Basket).

A note from Lori Carpenter, Netarts/Oceanside fencepost writer: I am taking a temporary leave to spend time with our family and upcoming arrivals of our granddaughter and a grandson... I plan on being back Jan. 9, 2013. I would like to thank




ast Sunday Kate Saunders of Lewis Creek Glassworks in Neskowin delivered a priceless one-of-a-kind fused glass pendant that I commissioned in memory of my dad who passed away in August. The clear, teardrop shaped piece is a true comfort to me. Kate summarized her work well with her parting words, “I don’t do these pieces to get rich; I create them to make the world a little less painful for one person at a time.” Examples of her cremulets are offered at Speaking of local folks acting as angels in our midst, I appreciate Joe Ehly letting us know that Nestucca High School’s OCET Equestrian Team has had a quiet Guardian Angel in the community this fall. They’ve received topsoil and sand for their arena as well as team jackets and shirts for competitions, all from Robert Warren Trucking. Local Thanksgiving Baskets will benefit from this month’s baked potato lunch fundraiser. It’s slated for 11:30-1:00 this Wednesday, November 14th at Nestucca Valley Presbyterian Church’ Fellowship Hall on Brooten Road in Pacific City. $5 buys a potato, a variety of delectable toppings, dessert and your drink. Speaking of Thanksgiving, Tawnya Crowe’s monthly cooking class features Thanksgiving leftovers this time. The lesson starts at 6:30 p.m at Hebo Christian

Thanks to Carol Doyle for word that Nesko Women’s Club meets at 11:30 on Friday, November 16, at Hudson House Bed and Breakfast Inn in Cloverdale. Non-members are welcome to attend. The program “Creating Wearable Art” will be presented by Judie Rubert, Fiber Artist. Please call Judie Rubert, 541-760-2389 for lunch reservations. The Kiawanda Community Center (KCC) Board of Directors will be hosting their annual Thanksgiving potluck on Thursday, November 22 at the center, address below. If you would like to be a guest of the KCC Board at this free event, call 503-965-7900 for information and to request an invitation. With a Thanksgiving event on the calendar, Christmas Bazaars must be on the horizon too. South Tillamook County’s “Bazaar Saturday”, traditionally the first Saturday in December, falls early on the calendar this year; don’t miss it. Besides Holly Days’ Bazaar featuring many vendors renting tables at Nestucca Valley Elementary School (call 503392-3435 to inquire about hours and selling space,) KCC at 34600 Cape Kiwanda Drive, Pacific City will host a two day bazaar from 9-4 Saturday and Sunday, December 1 and 2. Highlights include vendors, handicrafts, baked goods, gifts, a flea market of used Christmas decorations, and turkey noodles and chili available for lunch. St. Joseph’s Church in Cloverdale will hold their 52nd Annual Old-Fashioned Christmas Bazaar from 9-4 on Saturday, December 1st as well. Planned for the event are hand-crafted gifts,

ornaments, and decorations, all at reasonable prices; favorite recipes for homemade cookies, cakes, breads, and candy are made just for us; their famous hot cinnamon rolls and secret recipe sauerkraut with Polish dogs will be available for lunch. St. Joseph’s is easy to find in Cloverdale. It’s the picturesque white church with the tall steeple just a block off U.S. Highway 101, 34560 Parkway Drive in Cloverdale. With all of the eating we’ll do in the next months, it’s good to have exercise options available. Roby’s Furniture, at the south edge of Tillamook, opened a Women’s Fitness Center last month. At $25 a month with a $49 initiation fee, or $150 for six months paid in advance, the gym, located in the southwest corner of the store’s upstairs, is quite a bargain. It’s staffed from 8:00-1:00 weekdays by Alena Sheldon of Nehalem, and is open until 5:30, with Saturday use available from 10:00 -5:00. The circuit includes weights, cardio stations, and a bar for stretches. If you prefer ballet for your workouts, a dance option has just started up in Hebo. Oregon Coast Dance Center’s Rachel Martin, with a Masters Certificate from Dance Educators of America, offers six week sessions in three age categories: 3-5 year olds from 3:30-4:00 on Mondays for $30, 6-10 year olds from 4-5:00 p.m. on Mondays for $56, and age 11 through adult from 5-6:00 p.m. on Mondays for $56.

SUGAR BROSIUS 503-653-1449


ue Fulton Robinson emailed me a charming letter recently. Her childhood home is close to the Coast Guard Station in Garibaldi. Her mother drove the Rockaway Grade School bus for years. In fact her folks owned the district buses. For years she has watched the train go by and this summer actually got a chance to ride it. A group of Alumni from Neahkahnie class of 1965 rode the train from Garibaldi to Rockaway. Many of them got off and shopped during the layover. George Fussell, Don Henrick, Susy Carrell Moore, Chris Bulletset Baumgartner and husband Vern, Bob Kelim and wife Jane, Larry Criteser and wife Cheri, and Sue Fulton Robinson and husband Bruce plan to do it again but get more alumni involved. They thought it was a superb way to see their hometowns from a different perspective. All these folks also went to either Rockaway or Garibaldi Grade School. Next year, when Sue’s grandkids come from Arizona, a train ride will be on the agenda. I can’t believe Thanksgiving is coming up so quickly. Put a note on your calendar that November 23rd will be the lighting of the Christmas tree at our City Hall at 6pm. The Holiday Gift Fair’s hours will be extended till 6:30 that evening for the occasion. The Friends of the Library will also have an event beginning

tart layering your clothes because according to Gordon McCraw it is going to get downright cold for a while. It is still better than what they are getting back east. If I could grow wings I would be back there helping in some way. The new workout fitness center at Roby’s has been successful with lots of newbies. The fitness instructor is Alena Sheldon and she does a great job. She also has a couple of Zumba classes in the evenings. Stop by and say hi to her and check out the new facility. Kathy Pollock and I go every Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings and I feel the pain if I don’t work out more so than if I do.

Disaster Preparedness The following information is contributed by John Sollman: At a recent town hall meeting in Manzanita Gordon McCraw thanked the Civil Air Patrol for their support, and commented that, when the money ran out to pay for their flights, the pilots paid for the gasoline out of their own pockets. He referred to the CAP as our “siren in the sky.� The information provided by the LIDAR mapping makes sirens redundant for tsunami notification. It is now possible to notify everyone along the coast that a tsunami is expected, using the CAP and airborne loudspeakers. Gordon flew over the Bay City area at our drill last May, and his announcements were so loud that I couldn’t hear the messages over the radio I was operating. He also commented on Reverse 9-1-1 and other notification

NOTES FROM THE COAST Thanksgiving weekend. There will be a holiday decorations and small gifts sale. They will have a table set up through Christmas with wonderful extras to make your holiday more magnificent. New items will show up all through the Christmas Season. These are all donated and purchase will be by donation too. I love this idea! Bring your special someone by just to pick out a gift. They can pay whatever they think the item is worth and everyone comes out a winner. While you’re there, be sure to purchase a membership to the library. It’s only $5 for an individual and $10 for a family. This is a great way to keep our library in the black and pay those monthly bills. I truly enjoy the calls and emails I receive! The latest is from Joeanne McClave. She is a huge fan of Upper Crust Pizza. They have held wedding rehearsal dinners, birthday celebrations; they even had the Meals for Seniors Recognition Dinner there! And I got to go. The food was outstanding. She said Mary Effinger, the co-owner also treats her guests with decorations and special attention. Joeanne goes with a group that plays a game there monthly. In her words this is a "nice example of the cycle of giving and getting back within our community." I don’t even need to sugarcoat that! Be sure to check on your neighbors now that the weather is changing. Perhaps a warm dish or piece of wood for their fireplace would be helpful. Pay it forward! Now lastly, a huge thanks to my daughter, Amber, who proofreads all my columns before they’re sent to the paper. And my husband Dale, who listens to me each week as I read through it to make sure it’s worded correctly. “Almost overnight nature paints the world in new colors. Life can change just as quickly.� That’s Rockaway Beach, “Sugar Coated!�

modalities. About floating debris from Japan, Gordon commented that there are two more of those docks floating around in the Pacific, and that winter winds could bring more of the Japanese earthquake debris ashore in Oregon. Gordon and several others stressed the importance of having survival kits. He also recommended that everyone have an Emergency Go-Kit Passport containing information about your medications, immunizations, pets, and other family information, and urged everyone to get a battery-powered NOAA Weather Radio. Mark Labhart stressed that when we experience the “big one,� everything will fail. We’ll have no bridges, no drivable roads, no power and no telephone communications. There will be no reliable water and no sanitary facilities. Many will be without shelter. And, these conditions will last for months. He noted that Oregon is located on the so-called Ring of Fire. Severe earthquakes have occurred in Chile and then crept up the Western Pacific, from Indonesia north to Japan. It is logical to expect that the quakes will follow around to Alaska and then the Pacific Northwest. The 2007 rain and wind event gave us a foretaste of what to expect on a grand scale when the large subduction quake hits. Linda Koslowski and several others noted the importance of HAM radio communications. It was noted during the evening that taking the course to get a HAM license didn’t teach a person how to be a proficient HAM operator. The advice given: Join a HAM club and become a member of the Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL), and ask lots of questions. Other speakers spoke of the need for medically qualified people. Sanitation is a major concern when normal sanitary facilities are not available, and water supplies are of dubious quality. Have a great week and see you around town!

Don’t take things that don’t belong to you


few weeks ago intrepid HH editor Mary Faith Bell wrote about timber theft. Theft is bad. I was taught in kindergarten, don’t take things that don’t belong to you. I’ve experienced theft, both as the thefter and as the theftee. I once ate a chicken salad sandwich and didn’t pay for it. With French fries. It wasn’t worth it. I’m still thinking about it and publishing my theft in a newspaper seeking absolution from the Walgreen’s lunch counter in Dallas, Texas, decades later. And I’ve been thefted from. We lived on a corner of a busy street in Portland in a house with no backyard and two side yards. We got a lot of traffic. Someone stole a sprinkler from our front yard. And our lawn furniture. And a marijuana plant. I know, I know, but it was the sixties. Technically it was the seventies, but you get my point. Somehow someone came into possession of a few marijuana seeds and thought it would be funny to plant them along with a small Doug fir to decorate one of our busy side yards. Both plants did really well. When one plant got to about three feet tall, someone stole it, along with the other one. Maybe

mud, loaded the trailer, unloaded the trailer, tried to split the wood and stack it, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it was all that neat. Most thieves are quiet while theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re stealing; at least they are in the movies. Thieves do a lot of creeping. How can you creep and use a chainsaw? According to Editor Bellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story, no one was allowed to cut trees that time of year in the forest because of fire danger. There is nothing that announces what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing or where you are like a chainsaw. It has the same effect as shouting, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey! Stealing trees over here!â&#x20AC;? What would you do with the wood you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sell? Would you set your four-year-old on your knee and say, yep, little Johnny, your daddy stole that wood burning in the fireplace? A few weeks ago I wrote about the Eckhardts, documenters of Tillamook County. Since then, someone broke in and stole their stuff. What lower life form steals from our over-seventy-year-old founding fathers and mothers? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like stealing from George and Martha Washington. If you know anything, why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you leave the sheriff a tip? Call 503-842-2561.

they were going to make menthols. One theft made our friends laugh. We had nine yards of bark dust dumped one Saturday afternoon. I went out after breakfast Sunday morning to spread it around and shortly stood before my wife. Why arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you spreading the bark dust, she asked. SCHUBERT Someone stole it, I said. MOORE I called the police. I told them what happened. I can identify it, I said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medium fir. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean to condone theft, but to steal a tree? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of work. You have to be in pretty good shape to steal a tree. I doubt if I could steal a full-grown rose bush without hurting myself. When I first moved fresh from the big city, ignorant of the ways of rural Oregon, I saw a sign that said free wood. Someone was giving away the trees in a too-mature cherry orchard. I thought how neat was that. After I borrowed a chainsaw, rented a trailer, cut up ancient cherry trees in a hard rain and thick

Siuslaw National Forest is seeking public comment on the issuance of Special Use Permits for tailholds & guylines on National Forest System lands. Periodically the Hebo Ranger District of the Siuslaw National Forest receives requests for the use of tailholds or guyline anchors on National Forest System lands to facilitate yarding timber on private land. Tailhold and guyline anchors involve attaching cables/straps to live trees, existing stumps or parked heavy equipment. Authorization to use tailholds or guylines on National Forest system lands requires a special use permit. I am proposing to issue up to ten special use permits per year for the next ten years. Each application will be analyzed for potential effects to federal lands and resources before issuance of the permit. The following conditions will need to be met before the issuance of

Lives shattered Bud and Danielle led quiet, idyllic lives until their owner got sick and no longer can care for them. Now they desperately need new homes. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to stay together but can be adopted separately.

Bud At age 9, Bud will make someone a great pal, especially in a home with a fenced yard that he can call his own. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big dog who needs to stretch his legs. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also house trained, neutered and current with shots. Budâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real â&#x20AC;&#x153;peopleâ&#x20AC;? dog, but isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t especially fond of other dogs.

Danielle Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an affectionate Russian Blue, about 7 years old, healthy, spayed and current with shots. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an indoor girl who hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had much contact with other animals, other than Bud, so would do best in a home without other pets. She probably could adapt to another gentle dog or cat if introduced slowly.
