‘It takes a village to take down a house’ Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office partners with other law enforcement agencies on drug search by Sayde Moser

Early Friday morning, Nov. 1, officers representing the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office, Oregon State Police, and the Tillamook, Manzanita and Rockaway Beach police departments huddled. Although the team cracked some jokes and shared a laugh, this wasn’t just another drill. With the Sheriff’s Office leading the way and the others providing back-up, the task force – search

warrant in hand – approached a house just south of Tillamook. The officers considered occupants of the building to be a moderate to highrisk threat. Ultimately, the morning’s work resulted in two arrests: • David Mayfield, for unlawful possession of methamphetamine and frequenting a known drug house • And Raymond Vermilyea, for unlawful possession of methamphetamine, frequenting a drug

house, and theft. Stolen property and unspecified amounts of methamphetamine were recovered in the house, said the officers. According to the lead detective on the case, Troy Jackson, a sergeant with the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office, more arrests are expected. “The investigation is still ongoing,” he said. “This is what makes Tillamook County work, is because we all work

Riding a high horse

Clydesdales while Sean was working in the central Oregon community of Redmond shoeing horses. There, he met a farmer who had Clydesdales and eventually went to work for him. “I just got the bug,” said Sean. When the farm was sold, Sean returned to Tillamook to work at the smoker selling jerky. But not long after, his dad, Bryce, bought a hitch wagon at a horse auction in Madras. Horses were needed to pull it. The family’s team, Double S Clydesdales, was born. After just two years of competition, the family owns 12 horses – and recently took third place at nationals. In addition to Sean, brother Adam and even their mom, Roni, drive the team in selected hitches. “It’s brought

Brothers Sean and Adam Smith compete in “hitch” events at nationals with their team of Clydesdales. The brothers, who took an interest in hitch competitions only two years ago, took third in the nation this year.

Nation takes notice of local Clydesdales By Sayde Moser

What do you get when you mix a Tillamook family with nine Clydesdale horses and an old-fashioned “hitch” wagon? A winning team. “Hitch” is a competition that involves anywhere from one to eight horses pulling some type of wagon, plus a driver leading them. Teams are awarded points based on how their horses are judged. The judging is based on everything from how high the horses hold their heads, to how clean they are, how fit they are, their competitive spirit, how well their front and rear ends move, and how well they move together as a team. Hitch-style competitions date back

to the 1930s – likely, even earlier – when Clydesdales were used to pull plows and other farm equipment. Since the advent of tractors, these old-school hitches have been turned into competitions involving different categories of farm equipment. This year, brothers Adam and Sean Smith (along with their parents, Bryce and Roni Smith, who are owners of Tillamook Country Smoker in Bay City) have taken their team to a dozen different hitch competitions. The closest was in Denver. “We’re really the only team on the West Coast,” said Sean, 28, who’s the team’s primary driver. “There are some very long-standing hitches out there that are a part of the [American Clydesdale Association]. We’re kind of the new kids on the block.” The Smiths became interested in

Veterans to be honored at air museum By Joe Wrabek


A Tillamook County Veterans Day commemoration once again will take place at the air museum south of the city of Tillamook. This year’s event, scheduled for Monday, Nov. 11, will honor veterans of the Vietnam War, said event coordinator John Sollman. Sollman, who is active in Bay City’s VFW Post 2848, saw military duty in both Korea and Vietnam. The celebration at the air museum is said to be the largest Veterans Day program on the Oregon coast and the second largest in the state. Activities will begin with a traditional “SOS” breakfast at the Air Base Café. (“SOS” is a traditional – but unprintable – military term, Sollman noted.) County veterans service officer Bill Hatton kicks off the formal itinerary at 9:30 a.m. “You should arrive early to get a good seat,” Hatton advised. Last year’s Veterans Day commemoration ran out of chairs.

Koren War veteran Don Adams recounts his experiences in the Navy during last year’s Veterans Day commemoration at the air museum. The day’s keynote speaker will be Ret. Col. Bert Key, a Marine who served in Vietnam, subsequently became a teacher thanks to the G.I.

Bill, and served in both the National Guard and Army Reserve. His last tour of duty was in Afghanistan, “but he’ll probably focus

on the Vietnam War” in his speech, Hatton said. Key is a former Oregon State commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. As in years past, the U.S. Coast Guard will post the colors, and the Tillamook High School Chorus and Community Chorus jointly will sing the anthems of the military services. Members of the colorful Clan Macleay Pipe Band of Portland will be back, too, Hatton and Sollman said. Musical entertainment will be provided by the Buffalo Kitty Band, playing Vietnam War-era songs. The Tillamook Community Band, a fixture at previous Veterans Day commemorations, won’t be present this year because not enough members could be assembled, Hatton

The community gives back Every year, we try to find ways to let veterans know that their brave service during war and in peacetime is appreciated. “Honoring all who ser­ved” is a tradition that dates back to 1954, when President Eisenhower si­ gned into law a decree naming No­vember 11 as Veterans Day. Before that, the event had been known as Ar­ mistice Day. Although many restaurants and businesses offer discounted meals and special deals to veterans in recognition of their service to home and country,

expressing some gratitude for our soldiers’ bravery is something that each and every one of us can do. Attending a Veterans Day ceremony is a great way to show our veterans that we care. Likewise, sending a note of thanks or a “happy day” card to a veteran in the family or neighbourhood is a friendly gesture that says “thanks”. If you do not personally know any veterans, your local VA chap­ter will happily receive a card addressed to all its members.

Tillamook Traditions: A Pioneer Experience

What now serves as a place to stretch your legs and throw a Frisbee to your dog used to be covered in 6-foot-tall bramble bushes. David Schrom of Oregon Travel Experience said he’s heard from people who didn’t even know the Tillamook River was located adjacent to the rest stop south of the city of Tillamook.

Tillamook rest stop gets major facelift By Sayde Moser

In the two years since Oregon Travel Experience took over the rest stop south of Tillamook, the organization has transformed it from overrun bramble bushes and a dilapidated bathroom to a welcoming site that includes a mini-visitor center. “A lot of times, these rest stops are the first face of Oregon that people experience,” said Madeline MacGregor, chief communications officer for Oregon Trail Experience. Oregon Travel Experience was formed in 1972 by the state

Legislature as a semi-independent state agency. In addition to offering rest stops for travelers, the agency provides services that include locating and marking significantly historic sites, and marking freeway and highway exits with food, gas and lodging options for travelers. The rest stop along U.S. Highway 101 south of the city of Tillamook had been staffed by the Oregon Department of Transportation but was scheduled to be shut down several years ago. Tillamook County Commissioner Mark Labhart got word of the impending closure and, with the help of State Sen.

Betsy Johnson, found a way to keep it open. Lahhart contacted Oregon Trail Experience, which operates nearly two dozen rest stops across the state. Now, David Schrom spends eight hours each day working at the rest stop. He said it’s used not only by passersby, but also has hosted weddings, Easter egg hunts and family gatherings down by the adjacent Tillamook River, accessible from the rest stop. Last year, Oregon Trail Experience erected a second building on-site that eventually will serve as a visitor center. “We’d like to see it almost as

an extension of the Chamber of Commerce,” MacGregor said. Volunteers serve motorists free coffee and treats at the building. Any nonprofit organization can volunteer to run the coffee stand, said Annie VonDomitz of Oregon Trail Experience. The nonprofit can accept donations for its services. MacGregor said that as time passes, the agency will be upgrading all of its rest stops to include mini-visitor centers. “These aren’t just bathroom stops anymore,” said Kyle Walker, its CEO.

A 10-year plan aims to end area homelessness By Joe Wrabek

In a decade, no one in Tillamook County will be forced to live under a bridge. No one will be living out of his or her H40132 car, or on a friend’s couch. In 10 years, no one will be wondering if they’ll have a roof over their heads that night. That may sound like a bit of a pipe dream, but it’s a goal the three Tillamook County commissioners recently approved – a 10-year plan to end homelessness in the county. RS The plan had been presented to the commissioners by Erin Skaar, executive director of CARE. It came out of a m local “homeless summit” four H40133 years ago, which completed the county’s first “unsheltered,” or homeless, count. The summit “was a real eye-opener,” Skaar said. About 450 people, in 250 to 275 households, are homeless in Tillamook County, she said. “That’s between 2 and 3 percent of the population.” One-quarter of those are living in cars or under bridges. The remaining 75 percent are “doubled up” – living temporarily with friends or extended family. “A lot of the homeless population is under the radar,”



ur try

County Commissioner Mark Labhart noted. The county’s 10-year plan has four goals: • Expand and develop the supply of affordable housing in Tillamook County • Develop, coordinate and expand the emergency response network (the county’s “warming center” is the most recent piece of this effort, Skaar noted) • Develop and coordinate relations between tenants and landlords • And identify and implement system improvements. “We need to move from [homelessness] being one agency’s issue to being everyone’s issue,” Skaar said. CARE itself provides just eight housing units for people in need of a place to stay, using funds from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development. It was HUD that required the 10-year plan, Skaar said. “What happens if you don’t make it?” Commissioner Tim Josi asked. “You keep going,” Skaar replied. “You have to set something. There’s been momentum from the homeless summit, with the community saying, ‘We’re going to deal with this,’” she said.

CARE’s efforts could be hindered by “people at the top in the federal government,” Josi said. “They can’t even pass a farm bill.” “The food stamp cut is huge,” Skaar agreed. “A lot of people were making it just barely. Ten dollars can push somebody over the edge.”

Indeed, the federal government has yet to vote on LIHEAP, a program that provides assistance to those unable to pay high wintertime heating bills and normally is in place by Oct. 1.


including: a one night farm stay at a Japanese Forest House at R-Evolution Gardens and dinner for two at Dinner at Nehalem River Inn, a full season CSA share from DeNoble’s Farm, half of a local 4-H raised hog, a 4-week CSA share from Coyote Moon Farm and 6 Baker’s Choice Desserts, a bottom fishing trip from Siggy-G Ocean Charters, and a hand-made Myrtlewood coffee table. Raffle tickets are available for $10 or 6 for $50. There will only be 400 sold. Both event and raffle tickets are available at the following locations: TLC Federal Credit Union, the Tillamook Co. Pioneer Museum, the Shilo Inn Restaurant and Lounge, and online at Both the Tillamook Farmers’ Market and Food Roots work to support food systems, farmers and local food sustainability throughout Tillamook County.

The gun belonged to Quackenbush, who admitted the following day that he had lost the weapon in the theater. District Attorney William Porter filed charges the same day. Officials said the charge of reckless endangerment was filed because Quackenbush, knowing he had left his loaded gun in the theater, did not notify police to report it missing. Instead, he returned to the theater to retrieve it nearly 24 hours later, by which time the seventh-graders had found the loaded weapon. The primary issue regarding evidence was whether the court would allow the inclusion of “prior bad acts” – specifically, an incident in December 2011 when Quackenbush

reported a gun stolen that later turned out to have been mislaid. “The state has no need for evidence of this prior incident,” Quackenbush’s attorney, Pat Birmingham, declared. But Judge Jonathan Hill denied Birmingham’s motion. The Oct. 29 trial – it had been delayed twice – was before Judge Mari Garric Trevino, not Hill. DA Porter’s seven witnesses included McKinney, who had found the gun in the theater; Tillamook Police Chief Terry Wright; and Sheriff’s Deputy Jim Hill, who responded to Quackenbush’s report of a stolen gun in 2011. The defense offered no witnesses.

Readers’ Open Forum Re: ‘Clams are still there, officials say’ I had been out of town and was sorry to have missed the presentation given at the Netarts Fire Hall by Tony D’Andrea, Oregon department of Fish and Wildlife Shellfish Assessment Project leader. There seems to be a very incomplete survey assessment to be able to arrive at the statement “no deple-

tion of clams over the past year.” There are two and probably more areas that once had abundant little neck clams but are now near depletion, also some cockles as well as gapars. Mr. D’Andrea states the survey results are still preliminary. The east side of Netarts Bay has six oyster plats, possibly seven if the survey considered plat 21. The west side of Netarts

Bay has 14 plats and three more applications are being applied for. What Mr. D’Andrea has neglected to address is what access will the generals public have to these plats for recreation? What problems could exist to gather clam populations in oyster plats? Also, the comparison from 1970 to 2013 is significant because in 1970 there was very little if any oyster plat activity.

Tax seems unfair by Bruce Lovlin

Happy Camp Hideaway

Wow – are you kidding me Tillamook County. Going from a 0 to 10 percent tax on tourism lodging? Tillamook will be the highest of all coastal counties if this tax initiative passes. What is really amazing is Tillamook County has historically fought for the timber and dairy industries but seemed to treat those of us working in tourism with disdain, until now. Now we are a revenue source. Now our county commissioners will become tourism ambassadors and I will be forced to become their tax collector. Teresa and I own a small vacation rental business in Netarts called Happy Camp Hideaway. We have created jobs for six county residents. We buy product and use the services from Rosenbergs, Robys, Cenex,

CE Lewis, Bells and many others. Our customers purchase from the restaurants and stores throughout Tillamook County. Some of you tax proponents have called this new tax a winwin. That is far from the truth. Imposing a 10 percent tax can, at best be neutral but will more likely cause our business to suffer. In case you have not heard, tourists have experienced the recession too. They may not travel elsewhere but they will travel less. Tax proponents will say hold on Happy Camp, we are going to spend 70 percent of the tax to promote the ‘Tillamook brand.’ You will make so much money when we start our campaign. Again, you must be kidding. The last thing I want is County Commissioners Labhart and Josi,

If you want a college education these days, we do it ourselves, in this community. The college experience, and the ability to gain the credentials, and the knowledge to be a well educated professional, is right here. Not that long ago, college was something you had to leave the county to attain. College was away from home, something “big city”. Not everyone could achieve that dream. Now, high school students find college down the hall or across the parking lot. And, after high school graduation, our students can easily move into full time college life, right in our community, earning credits for a two year

Associates degree, and a transfer degree to a four year university, where they start as juniors. TBCC’s First Scholar program offers free college tuition for local high school students who have earned a 3.0 GPA and can demonstrate college level proficiency in basic student skills. One of my neighbors is a high school senior this year, busy with academics, sports, and a part time job. His senior project involves working with younger students to improve their health and their academic work. He’s interested in natural resources, and wants a four year degree. But, next year, he’s staying home, and will take a full course load at TBCC. After two years, he’ll transfer to Oregon State, well prepared to finish his bachelor’s degree. By staying home, he’ll save on housing and tuition, enjoy the support of his family, keep his part time job, and still be a contributing member of our community. He’s a home grown boy, growing into manhood and college life with the

support of his family and our community. He’s not leaving yet, and he can continue his education here. He’ll have all the resources he’d find at OSU, getting a solid education, and continuing to be a hard working and contributing member of our community. We used to say that our largest export from Tillamook County was our kids. That’s changing. Our kids don’t have to leave now, to get that college degree, to get that experience and knowledge for a successful career. We are all part of my neighbor’s education. And, part of that is contributing scholarship dollars to help hardworking, smart students. We can all be cheerleaders and advocates for our kids as they keep on learning, keep on being focused on a bright future. Let’s keep on growing our home grown crop of bright, engaged kids.

LETTERS: distributed to 40 recipients. Wouldn’t one think or like to believe that the environmental impact these requests have upon our estuaries would bring about stronger more lasting environmental protection? Oyster plats relinquished and restrictions must be implemented for the health of estuaries given to future generations, which they are not. At one time the ODFW had the responsibility of oyster applications when they were relinquished, probably through a lobbing process sin Salem, I don’t know. I do know that the Oregon Department of Agriculture has excessive control over what should be a custodial obligation of an environmental agency. The obligation should be to the general public for ht preservation of the environmental health of these public lands. John R. Stahl Netarts

More than 50 Faith in Action volunteers are the hearts and hands that bring independence and joy to people around Tillamook County through their faithful service.

United Way for more than 10 years. During this time, grants and directed donations through TCUW totaling nearly $30,000 have helped support the work of volunteers throughout Tillamook County as they offer assistance and support to the frail and elderly, and people of all ages who suffer from chronic illness, mental illness or disabilities, through in-home volunteer services and through Wellspring, an adult respite day-care center. The primary objective of these services is to strengthen families and individuals by assisting community members who have long-term health needs to maintain their independence as long as possible, at no cost to the families. Faith in Action recruits, trains and matches volunteers who serve the chronically ill, disabled, frail, elderly and mentally ill with in-home respite care, friendly visiting, local transportation, housework, yard work and minor home repairs. In 2012, 54 volunteers served 3,976 hours helping 105 neighbors throughout Tillamook County.


FIA’s current average annual familyunit value is $200 per individual/family for in-home volunteer services. In calendar year 2012, TCUW’s funding of $3,000 helped make it possible for Faith in Action to serve more than 15 families with in-home services. Some of these families include: • Sue*, who lives alone and can care for herself, although a mental disability means she does not drive, which makes shopping and errands challenging. Volunteer Jim* helps Sue with transportation for a weekly shopping and errands trip. The two have become friends who enjoy visiting together. • A sweet, elderly couple – John* and Lois* – who have a FIA volunteer who visits several times each month. The volunteer stays with John, who has Alzheimer’s, which gives Lois time to run errands and have time for herself to help her continue caring for her husband at home. • And Carol*, an elderly lady living alone in her own home, who has outof-town family that visit fairly often. FIA volunteer James* helps with small

tasks such as yard work and little things around the house, which gives the family a feeling of security knowing that their mom has someone trust-worthy to help when they cannot be there. Mollie Reding, Faith in Action’s coordinator, says, “I am so thankful for the funds received through United Way to support the work of Faith in Action. This financial support helps us recruit and train community volunteers who then reach out and offer hope and friendship to many in need all around Tillamook County.” There are many ways to contribute to TCUW: online at, through payroll deductions (if offered by your employer), or by mailing a donation to Tillamook County United Way, P.O. Box 476, Tillamook, OR 97141. By donating to Tillamook County United Way, your donation can impact the lives of many. Whether you donate $1 or $100, your contribution makes a difference.

Re: Blimp hanger on the ropes We have seen people who have inherited their parents’ nice old house and 20 years later the roof is leaking and the paint is peeling but there are nice cars in the driveway, elegant clothes in the closet, 4-wheelers and boats in the garage. They are not being paid to maintain the house. If the building was not supposed to last this long, where is the sinking fund for demolition or replacement? The reason the beautiful old planes are going to Madras is because the port is not maintaining the blimp hanger. The public has paid for the port management team to attend classes or conferences on management and maintenance. Where is the evidence that they listened and learned? By their actions the port has shown that they would much rather build new buildings than maintain, restore or remodel the old ones. There does not seem to be a demand for all of the new buildings.

who made their careers living off the public to be in charge of promoting my business. How many private sector jobs have they created? Netarts does not need the ‘Tillamook Brand.’ People come to Oceanside and Netarts because they are very special places. Pacific City and Neskowin also attract many people because these are places that people love to visit. Outside of the Tillamook Cheese Factory, tourists can’t drive fast enough to get through inland Tillamook. Commissioners, please do not do us any favors. Leave promoting tourism to the professionals. Please don’t think this will be the last tax initiative

coming to Tillamook County. Read the Tillamook Lodging Tax County Ordinance #74. On the first page, you will see two definitions: Conference center and Convention center. You can call me paranoid, but why do I think the tax proponents are considering building a conference center. Maybe a golf course too. How about at the Port of Tillamook Bay? That’s really going to help my business. Is it fair to charge a lodging tax? I would say yes, you cannot travel anywhere without government in your pocket. But a 10 percent increase that occurs overnight? No, that’s not fair. Our county commissioners are the representatives of rural Tillamook

County. Garibaldi, Nehalem, Rockaway, Tillamook and the other towns can and have implemented their own tourist taxes already. Cities provide a higher level of services than in the rural county but still Tillamook County wants to be the highest of all coastal counties. I have no sidewalks, few street lights, fewer cops but now I get a tax like Portland. Our commissioners have lost touch with those of us west of Hwy 101 in the rural areas. Is the tax going to pass? Of course it will. It is a classic divide and conquer tactic. It a faceless, victimless tax. It is supported by so many self-interest groups that are already extending their hand

What about the men in our community? Dear Ms. Moser, n response to the cover story “Living By Grace” in the October, 30, 2013 edition of the paper. I was deeply moved by your writing and the story of lives changed. I am thrilled that a place has been found to help these women find a second (and sometimes third and fourth) chance. But something is missing in our community that is as needed as the House of Grace for women. That is a place for men who are released from the jail and have no place to go. In July, I met such a man (fourth one in the short time I’ve been here in Tillamook) who was living under a bridge at the edge of town. Under a bridge, in a tent, in the dark. No family, no friends, and no community to help him back into society. And why should we? He is a sex offender and had been in jail for most of his life from age 16 to present (he is 56). As your sidebar to the story said, “there goes the neighborhood,” when someone tried to find an answer for the ladies. No one wants these men in their backyard. Yet, they are in our backyards. They have to serve their parole here in Tillamook. Most of them, as I have written, have no family, no friends, and little possibility of finding work. We don’t want them, but they are here. As a community, we need to find the answer for these men who are released from jail and expected to reenter society. A home needs to be created to help those who are wanting to create a new life. Those I have come in contact with did learn of a new way of living by the ministries and studies given by the many volunteers who go to the jail week after week. Like the women in the story, they are wanting to find a path back to a life that they have never known. Until we wake up to the fact that they are here, they are in our backyards (well, under our bridges) and that they can’t go somewhere else, we will be missing an opportunity to help these men “live by grace.” Tim Mayne Tillamook Seventh-day Adventist Church, pastor

Nestucca High School class of 2013: an elite group By Sayde MoSer

Thirty eight newly graduated Nestucca students took the stage June 7, taking their first steps towards the rest of their lives. “You are the one and only graduating class of 2013 from Nestucca High School,” said guest speaker Misty Wharton. “You share that with 38 people; that’s a pretty elite group. “This community is unique,” she contnued. “When giving directions, we often refer to how many bridges you have to go over, whose house it is next to or whose property it used to be. We can take any corner at 55 miles per hour but brake for tractors, deer and elk sometimes. You are a product of this unique community be proud of it. Never let anyone make you feel like you are a second class citizen because the town you were educated in was small.” Wharton told the graduates when she thinks of the class of 2013, “I think of how they have such strong emotions about things; they’re very vocal about what they like and do not like. “ Wharton went on to say that while some of them might be itching to move away and others might be wanting to stay put, there is no ideal place to live. “I love it here, but I can say that because I chose to leave and come back,” she said. “When I was your age, I also wanted to leave my community and it was the second smartest thing I ever did because it affirmed that I wanted to move back… Explore your world and if moving back is the right fit for you, you’ll know it. But be a contributing member of your community wherever you chose to call home.” Wharton reminded the young adults that while being a Nestucca graduate put them in a unique class of their own, they are still only one of billions of people on the planet. “Cherish your friends and family,” she said. “Because they will always be there for you and out of all the billions of people on this planet, those are your people - so treat them like they are one in a billion.” Salutatorian Maria Perez told those present that high school was full of life-changing situations. “We’ve come so far and accomplished so much in four short years,” she said. “I hope we can all look back on those times and remember the happy and the sad times we’ve had

together. I hope wherever we go in this world, we always remember each other… Together we will always be the class of 2013.” Valedictorian Patrice Lussier thanked the many parents, teachers, coaches and family members who helped her and her class make it this far. “They gave us the tools we needed to succeed,” she said. “They held our hand in the beginning, and then pushed us forward, and now we are here showing them their time wasn’t completely wasted.” The Headlight Herald has a full video of the Nestucca 2013 graduation available for purchase.

Fair manager resigns

By Melonie FerguSon For The Headlight Herald

Eighty art lovers browsed original art and sipped wine while enjoying live music at Tom Goodwin Gallery and Studio last Sunday afternoon. The June 2 event celebrated the transformation of the former Closet Door Boutique in Cloverdale into a sleek, light-filled, airy space graced by polished wood floors, fresh paint and a new skylight. It’s the perfect setting to shop for original art. Owner, Tom Goodwin spoke with the Headlight Herald. “I’ve been in love with Tillamook County since vacations as a kid,” he said. “I’ve fished here a lot, and five years ago I moved nearby, five miles south of here…near Oretown.” Local artists participating in the opening exhibit include Julius Jortner,

acrylic paint on 100% cotton canvas. They contain symbols, suggestions of moving figures (humans and animals,) and the overall mood ranges from light and humorous to richly sensual. “I’ve been trying to paint my way out of real estate for forty years!” he quipped. Besides “hanging out with a lot of arty people,” Goodwin describes his art education as including coursework at The Museum Art School in Portland, and The University of Oregon. The new gallery is located at the intersection of U.S. Highway 101 and Bridge Street, next door to Cloverdale Pharmacy, in downtown Cloverdale. Hours are 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday or by appointment via telephone; call 503-329-8345. View more than 165 offerings at

Tillamook County Fair manager Miranda Muir has resigned. Muir had been on the job only eight months. Hired by the Fair Board in August 2012, she took over Miranda Muir as fair manager October 1. Muir had worked and volunteered for the Sangamon County Fair in New Berlin, Ill. for 17 years, but this was her first fair manager job. “She said she resigned because she and her husband didn’t think Tillamook was a good fit,” Fair Board president Rita Hogan told the Headlight Herald. “And she had another job opportunity come up. It was her decision,” Hogan emphasized. “We were hoping she’d be able to experience a Tillamook County Fair.” With Muir already gone, “We still have a fair to put on,” Hogan said. “We’ll put it on. Everybody’s stepping up,” she said, “taking on more responsibilities.” The Fair Board, which hires the fair manager, won’t begin the process of finding a replacement for Muir until after this year’s county fair is over. “We don’t have time to focus on it now,” Hogan said. The Fair Board may hire someone part time to assist Kristin Killgore at the Fair office. Calls, questions and decisions that would normally have gone to Muir should be directed to the Fair office (503/842-2272), Hogan said, or to one of the Fair Board members.

If all goes according to plan, the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad will be pouring the foundation for its “new” office - the old Tillamook Depot - by October. According to Office Administrator Tim Thompson, they had wanted to start work back in 2011 but due to the permit process and meeting Tillamook County building codes, it was pushed back. The building, which will serve as an office as well as a living museum, will be a free-standing structure on the Blue Heron property. It will house small artifacts and other items pertaining

In 2011-12, Thompson said they had a little over 13,000 riders. This last year has brought in 18,800, he said.

Guy Robert “Bob” Steele died peacefully in his chair on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013 following a wonderful weekend filled with family activiBob Steele ties. Bob Steele was born on June 5, 1920 in Wall, S.D. He was the youngest of four children. He spent his early years living and working on the farm.  While in high school, he worked as a typesetter at the Sioux Valley News in Canton, S.D. During his teen years, he lived and worked with his brother Albert on the reservation.  A favorite family story is when Albert ran out of cigarette papers: Bob, at age 12, rode a horse 18 miles to the nearest town to buy more!  After high school, he moved to Roswell, S.D., in search of work, and found both work and a wife on the Wilge Farm. After marrying Jean on December 28, 1940, they moved to Rapid City, S.D.  Two daughters were born, Pat in 1941, and Roberta in 1942, and the family moved to California, where he enlisted in the Merchant Marines, and shipped out the very next day. He served on the USS Charles Goodyear and the USS Nickajack Trail. 

While he was at sea, his wife and daughters lived with his sister, Florence, and family in Portland, Ore. Bob was discharged from the Coast Guard on September 12th, 1944, with the rank of Able Seaman.  A son, Steve was born in 1945. For the next several years, Bob worked in western Oregon as a logger and eventually settled in Tillamook, Ore., in 1957. In the 1960s he and Jean changed careers and began managing the Alderbrook Golf Course.  Always avid golfers, they ran the golf course for many years. Upon retiring in 1983, they built a house on a golf course in Mazatlan, Mexico, and wintered there for more than 10 years.  Bob and Jean moved to Port Angeles in 2005. They have been avid Rough Rider fans and attended many high school sporting events for grandchildren and great grandchildren.  Family gatherings almost always involve many hands of cards, “Pitch” being a favorite game of Bob’s.  Bob was well known for his incredible memory and curiosity. He will be missed by his family and friends.  Bob was preceded in death by his wife, Jean; daughter Roberta Keeler; granddaughter Sara Smith and great grandchildren Samantha, Nathan and Robert Smith. He is survived by his daughter Pat Jones (Roy); sister Florence Klingman; grandchildren Scott Jones, Todd Steele, Dana Bailey, Rob Keeler, Shawn Steele, Matt Keeler, Ken Jones, Cynthia Keeler and great grandchildren Skylar Jones, Katie Schorr, Kiah Jones, Bailee Jones, Elizabeth Bailey,

During the rendezvous, 60 would-be champion anglers are paired randomly, two each, with 30 fishing guides, who are donating all of their time, equipment, fuel and expertise. They’ll fish both days, eating breakfast and dinner at the Swiss Hall in Tillamook and enjoying box lunches assembled by the Garibaldi House hotel and the Garibaldi Tourism Commission. Some, although not all, of the fishing boats will launch from the Port of Garibaldi. “We’ll be fishing all over Tillamook County,” Smith said. The Garibaldi City Council voted Oct. 29 to waive business license fees for the guides launching out of Garibaldi for the Rendezvous. This will be the first Rendezvous in two years. Last year’s event was canceled at the last minute because of bad weather. Registration “fills up pretty fast,” said Jack Smith’s wife, Tina. This year, all 60 “seats” were full by May, she said. At the big awards dinner Friday night, trophies are awarded for the biggest fish (measured in inches). “And the anglers get to keep the fish,” Smith said. It’s a big fundraiser. Between angler registrations and the charity auction held Friday night, the rendezvous raises upwards of $40,000 annually. Two years ago, the event

The 785-acre business park at the Port of Tillamook Bay was built with funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency in 2009, after port commissioners heard from citizens that they’d like additional warehouse space. However, the additional space has gone mostly unused, prompting the port’s general manager to contact a commercial broker. mercial. Schumann, who said she has been in commercial real estate for more than three decades, was contacted by Bradley to draft a marketing plan for the property. “It’s really been one area where I think we receive a lot of criticism from the public,” said Bradley, “because there’s this assumption that we built those buildings and aren’t planning on doing anything with them. “When in reality, we just haven’t had the manpower to pull together our own market-

Continued from Page A1 raised $75,000, Smith said. The proceeds go directly into hatchery and habitat improvements. “People send us project ideas,” Smith said. Projects have been suggested by the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, and others, he said. “There are very few projects we don’t approve.” North Coast Salmon and Steelhead Enhancement Fund money has bought feed for 10,000 winter steelhead to help restore runs on the Nestucca River, and for 30,000 winter steelhead to help restore runs on the Wilson River. Proceeds also have purchased a generator, pumps and alarm system for Hughey Creek Pond; helped pay to remove logjams on the Wilson River; repaired and replaced equipment at the Trask River and Nehalem hatcheries; and helped fund boat launch improvements on the Wilson, Trask, and Nestucca rivers, among the dozens of projects. “We’ve made millions of dollars in improvements,” Smith said. To submit a project idea, “contact Jack or me,” said Tina Smith. Call 503-8426313.

ing strategy.” Schumann has spent more than two months familiarizing herself with the port’s assets to create a specific marketing plan for the area. That plan will be complete Nov. 15, she said. A draft plan was presented to port officials during a recent meeting. “There’s got to be a unique business category we can find that’s suitable for the port,” Schumann said. “From Astoria to Newport, there’s not really any business park land to attract large corporations,


us really close as a family,” Roni said. “We’re hoping the grandkids will get into it, too.” Said Bryce, “We’d like to place first at the national championship and then go to the world competition in 2015. And we have a very good opportunity to do that.” It just takes a lot of traveling. Sean said that although hitch exhibitions are staged closer to home, the more competitive “association” competitions are held elsewhere. “We decided to go to the East Coast, because we wanted to make ourselves better,” said Sean. “We’re going up against hitches that have a huge budget and paid staff to help out.” Added Sean, “When you go beat them, it feels pretty awesome. To be able to compete at that level after only two years is huge for us. “Especially when no one has heard about Tillamook, it’s cool to come in and make our presence known.” The Smiths currently haul nine horses to events, but are hoping to bump that up to 12. “I love the competition

so we really have a unique opportunity to promote Tillamook County.” “I love the idea of attracting big industrial-type brokerage here,” said Schumann. In addition to leasing space, Schumann suggested possibly selling some of the port’s assets, such as the old Navy headquarters building. “Selling that out of the interior of our port makes my stomach churn a little bit,” argued port commissioner Jim Young. Still, Schumann estimated the building would sell for between $350,000 and $400,000. “It might be suitable for a hostel,” she suggested, noting there are no known hostels in the county. Schumann said she’ll also be looking for future tenants for the port’s iconic blimp hangar, even though, “I think we’d all be interested in seeing that remain [an air] museum.” Schumann said she has contacts with the Museum of Flight in Seattle, the Boeing Co. and the Smithsonian Institution, to name a few potential tenants. Or, a private entity might be interested, she added. “It’s important to bring them all to market and start getting the word out about what we have here,” she said.

Continued from Page A1 part of this,” Sean said. “Traveling is hard, but I love being on the road, because I know we’re going to our next competitions.” On or off the road, the Smiths train the horses for several hours each day. One of the horses, Burt, is into his 20s already and Bryce said that if there were a hall of fame for horses, Burt would qualify. “We were able to start out with champion horses,” Bryce said, “so it helped in the beginning getting started.” In January, the Smith hitch team leaves for the North American Six-Horse Hitch Classic Series, which includes the top four hitches of all three breeds of Clydesdales. The family is aiming for a top ranking.

Five Rivers Coffee Roasters still open, with new owners By Joe Wrabek

Five Rivers Coffee Roasters, located across U.S. Highway 101 from the Tillamook cheese factory, has new owners – with familiar faces. Local accountant Marliyn Phegley and dairy farmers David and Freynie Gienger took over last month from Keith and Barbara Powell, who had started Five Rivers Coffee Roasters years ago. The Powells had been leasing the business to Pacific City-based Pelican Pub & Brewery, which recently withdrew from the enterprise so the pub could focus on its new taproom in downtown Tillamook. The business, Phegley said, “is unique in Tillamook County.” The Powells began Five Rivers Coffee in a ga-


rage, she noted, “and began winning awards.” “I used to come in Friday mornings to have coffee,” Phegley recalled. “Then I heard it was going to close.” Phegley and the Giengers bought the place Oct. 4. “It’s an opportunity to see old friends,” said Freynie Gienger. “It is fun, but time-consuming. It’s been a humbling experience.” The two handle most of the customer service. One barista stayed on from Pelican Pub & Brewery. David Gienger roasts the coffee beans. Five Rivers carries 19 varieties of coffee beans, from nine different countries. “Keith and Barb trained David,” Freynie Gienger said. “They’ll be working with us through December.” The name Five Rivers

Coffee Roasters doesn’t indicate there’s a coffee shop, too – but there is. The shop gets both drive-through and walk-in traffic. “It’s very attractive because of the indoor seating,” Phegley said. “It’s a place you can come visit and hang out, and not feel rushed.” The meeting room is seeing use as well, she said. Phegley credits Pelican Pub & Brewery with building up the café side of the business. “They really brought the café online,” she said. “Keith and Barb and Pelican Pub did an excellent job,” Freynie Gienger added. “We’re just trying to do what they did. We wanted to keep it going.” The new owners plan to carry pastries from Bayfront Bakery in Garibaldi, plus Sue Jeffries’s scones.

“A lot of people come in for [coffee] beans,” Phegley said. “Most don’t have us grind it, but some do.” She said coffee beans are supposed to cure for three days after being roasted, then ideally should be used within 10 days. Besides individual customers, Five Rivers supplies coffee to kiosks, restaurants and a growing mail-order clientele. “We have customers as far away as Alaska and Colorado,” Phegley said. Five Rivers’ hours are 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. “We’d like to be open Mondays,” Phegley said. “We eventually want to be open in the evening, especially for students. Once the weather improves, “We’ll be doing things outside, too,” she said.

was just “average for Tillamook County,” according to Jackson. “We get a lot of complaints when it’s a flop house like this” – a residence where people gather to use drugs. Jackson said officers might receive a tip that enables them soon thereafter to stage a raid. Other times, it can take years to develop the proper evidence. “It’s frustrating for citizens as well as detective,” he said. “It’s really just a matter of being at the right place and obtaining the right information to move now.” And when that time arrives, there’s no messing around, McCandles said. “When it all comes together, it’s ‘go’ time

and it’s right now.”

together,” said Tillamook County Undersheriff Jana McCandless. “It takes effort on everyone’s part.” She said the county’s investigators rely on tips from citizens, surveillance and evidence to make a case. “It takes a community to take down a house,” said McCandless. She said the south Tillamook residence had been under surveillance for months. “It can take that long to get a search warrant.” Said Jackson, “Drug investigations are complex. It takes time to develop the proper evidence.” In this case, which involved stolen property, each

of the jurisdictions had a “finger in the pie,” he said. “This county is so small, we share our criminals,” added McCandless. Which can make local investigations all the more complex, noted Tillamook Police Chief Terry Wright. “The evidence to get a search warrant has to be fresh,” he said. In this case, the warrant was tied primarily to stolen property, which, said Wright, was being bartered for drugs. The police chief said cases involving theft are ones “we go after a little harder, because those folks are causing problems for the whole community.” That said, the Nov. 1 bust

Milk jugs for benches. Tin cans for Third World art. A kids’ coloring contest for a countywide calendar. Nov. 9-16 is “Recycling Awareness Week” in Tillamook County. The event began in Oregon in 1986, following enactment of a state law mandating curbside recycling in towns of more than 4,000 population. The week includes “National America Recycles Day,” which falls on Nov. 15. The Tillamook County commissioners proclaimed both “Recycling Awareness Week” and “America Recycles Day” during a recent regularly scheduled meeting. Last year, the Tillamook County Solid Waste Department held a contest for local elementary schools: collect 1,500 milk jugs (the ones made out of the hard-to-recycle #2 plastic) and the agency would present the school with a bench made from the jugs. Nestucca Valley Elementary in Cloverdale and East Elementary School in Tillamook earned benches. The milk jug contest is back for a second year, said Tillamook County Solid Waste manager David McCall. Participating fourth- through sixth-graders will attempt to collect 1,500 plastic jugs – about 300 pounds worth – in just one week.

Schools that collect the limit (or more) will receive a bench made from the plastic jugs. A one-week limit was placed on the students “because we wanted to demonstrate how much we throw away,” said Sue Owens, the outreach specialist for the county’s Solid Waste Department. Collecting 1,500 plastic jugs in one week is pretty easy, she suggested. Also this year, there’s a contest for local junior and senior high schools, too: collect 1,000 pounds of tin cans during “Recycling Awareness Week.” (That’s about 1,500 cans, according to Solid Waste.) The cans need to be washed and clean, but can be crushed and the labels left on. As with the plastic jugs, Tillamook County Solid Waste will pick up the cans. Schools that collect the target amount will receive a handmade piece of metal wall art, made from the top of a metal barrel. “It comes from an undisclosed Third World country,” Owens said. A third category, this one for kindergarten through third-graders, is a coloring contest focusing on an “I Recycle” theme. It’s open to homeschooled students, as well as students enrolled in private schools, in addition to the public schools, Owens said.

Ambition costs Bobcats the win by chelsea yarnell

The Cheesemakers play in their first state game Tuesday afternoon.

Cheesemakers earn their way to the sweet sixteen by chelsea yarnell

Two wins this past week qualified the Tillamook boys’ soccer team for the first round of the 4A state tournament, the first time in over five years. The first win of the week was on Oct. 29, when the Cheesemakers defeated Scappoose 1-0. The Tillamook and Scappoose boys’ soccer teams were a fair matchup. On a brisk Tuesday night in Tillamook, both teams sufficiently held their ground. The number two and three ranked Cowapa League teams battled through the first half, both struggling to find a weak spot in their opponent’s game. At the half, it was still anyone’s contest with a tied score at 0-0. Finally, the Cheesemakers found a hole in the Indians’ defense. To meet an oncoming attack from the Cheesemakers, Scappoose’s goalkeeper moved forward on the field and left the goal wide open. Junior Hector EstradaSandoval seized the opportunity and swiftly kicked around the Indian’s goalie to the unattended net. At 1-0, the game returned to the struggle of two talented teams. Neither was able to make effective ground on the other, demonstrating that the Cheesemaker’s only goal of the night was one of perfect timing and precision. “While we may not have found the back of the net like we wanted to last night, the team was solid,” Head Coach Brian Reynolds said. “Great defense from all positions made for a relatively stress free coach on the sidelines as my confidence grew in their ability to hold firm and keep the ball in possession. By keeping the clean sheet one goal was all that was needed to secure the win.” The win against the Indians was an improvement from their Oct. 9 matchup where they tied 3-3.

“The second half of our league season is some of the best soccer we have ever played,” Reynolds said. “Only one goal was allowed in the last five matches while we posted a total of five clean sheets (shutouts) in league [games]. This has been a very good year for Tillamook soccer.” Prior to the game, the senior athletes were honored and thanked for their dedication to the sport. “This has been an amazing group of seniors to work with. Collectively they have been an instrumental part in turning around the culture and work ethic of this program,” Reynolds said. “All have stepped up and provided key leadership at key moments. I am very pleased with and proud of them all.” The win against the Indians secured the Cheesemaker’s second place in the Cowapa League, making them eligible for a play-in game. Their chance to enter the state tournament came Saturday night when Tillamook battled the Central High School Panthers. With only the winner of the matchup advancing to the 4A state tournament, tensions were high. “The game was much more physical than I expected. The two sides combined for 36 fouls and 3 yellow cards,” Head Coach Brian Reynolds said. “But they are used to these physical matches and have been able to take the poundings and still produce all season long. They are tough individuals.” Their strength led them to a 2-1 win over the Panthers of Central High School. The first goal of the night came from the Panthers and surprised Tillamook’s goalkeeper Sergio Jimenez. “Central’s goal was a team defensive miscue. Sergio heard the shot taken, but being shielded by the masses in front of him, didn’t see it until it was too late,” Reynolds said. The rough play eventually

benefitted the Cheesemakers. Ernesto Mondragon was tripped in the box by a Panther defender and was awarded a penalty kick. He successfully made the shot. “It shifted the momentum for us and tied the game at 1-1,” Reynolds said. In the second half, the Cheesemakers locked in their win. With 19:39 to go in the game, Tillamook found the hole in the Panthers’ defense and scored their second goal. “The second half goal was started by a set piece created by a free kick in the offensive one-third of the field,” Reynolds said. “Ernesto played a nice ball towards the keeper who was not able to handle the velocity of the shot and let it bounce off of his body. Leeroy [Mendez] and Sean [Rumage] were both there to collect the reward. Sean jumped out of the way and Leeroy put it into the net.” Central High School had a few additional shot attempts, even a close one with ten seconds left in the game. Luckily it hit the top of the goal frame and bounced back onto the field where a Cheesemaker kicked it out of bounds and time ran out. “Central did not give up and made several good concerted efforts. We did enough defensively to seal the win,” Reynolds said. “The boys played hard for 80 minutes and left it on the field. They wanted that win and they got it.” The win Saturday night secured Tillamook a spot in the first round of the state playoffs. The Cheesemakers traveled to McLoughlin High School in Milton-Freewater, Ore. to play the number two 2A Pioneers on Tuesday. The state quarterfinals are the furthest a Tillamook boys’ soccer team has ever qualified for in the state tournament and Reynolds hopes they can match that. If they are successful, they would also match the most wins won in a season, ten.

Nestucca took the lead 18-14, and again failed the two-point conversion attempt. The Loggers responded with a touchdown of their own. Hoping to gain a larger lead, they opted for the twopoint conversion but failed, bringing the score to 18-20. A last fighting chance presented itself for the Bobcats. Upon receiving the kickoff, Nestucca worked their way within reach of a fourth touchdown. But failing to convert a fourth down with little time remaining, the chance was gone. “Too many penalties and some tentative play really cost us,” Head Coach Jeff Schiewe said. “I hate losing three touchdowns to three touchdowns and some conversions.” After their 18-20 loss to the Loggers, Schiewe drilled the team about what was the most important thing after a defeat. “The next play,” the team responded. And the next play will be Friday for the Bobcats. Ending their regular season 6-2 overall and 3-2 in the league, Nestucca qualified for the first round of the 2A state playoffs. The number 13 Bobcats will travel to Grant, Ore. to play the number four Prospectors of Grant Union High School this Friday. “We have played three higher ranked teams. We have led two of them, and held the other scoreless for two and half quarters,” Schiewe said. “We will play our game and hope things work out. Grant Union is a very good team, but Nestucca’s athletes are too.”

The game would have been theirs. But, the Bobcats opted for the risky two-point conversion after each touchdown, and failed to complete it every time. Nestucca’s chancy decisions cost them the game as they lost 18-20 to the Loggers of Knappa. “I wanted the lead after we scored our first touchdown, and then we were kind of forced into it by a penalty and trying to maintain the points that Knappa had earned,” Head Coach Jeff Schiewe said about his two-point conversion decisions. “In hindsight, just kick it, take the one. But I gambled.” Knappa took an early lead in the first quarter, with a quick pass to the Logger’s Ryan Simpson who ran it for the first touchdown of the evening. With a good extra point, the Loggers led 7-0, two minutes into the game. The Bobcats had no answer for Simpson early on. Pass after pass was received as the Loggers consistently moved their way up the field. A little bit of trickery helped jump-start the Bobcats in the second quarter. A successful fake punt pass moved the Bobcats up to the 50-yard line. On the next play, Keenan Wenrick successfully weaved through the Loggers’ defense, carrying the ball from the 50 on up the field. Just within reach of a touchdown, Knappa pulled Wenrick down, causing him to fumble the ball on the 3-yard line. The Loggers recovered the fumble. On the following Knappa

possession, the Bobcats responded by forcing a Logger fumble. Making their way all the way to the five, Drace Moeller was able to push his way through the Loggers’ defense and scored the first touchdown for the Bobcats with 5:10 left in the first half. Hoping to gain a small lead, the Bobcats unsuccessfully attempted a two-point conversion, the first of three attempts of the night. Shortly after, Knappa returned with a touchdown of their own. The point after left the score 6-14. On the Bobcats’ next possession, they continued to show dedication to the running game, and it resulted in little if any yardage gain for Nestucca. Moeller received the kickoff at the start of the second half and ran it out of bounds at the 45. Max Kirkendall took the ball and ran it up the middle for an additional 15 yards. An illegal block from Moeller sent the Bobcats back ten yards. Making up for the penalty, Moeller received the handoff and ran it in for a Bobcat touchdown. They elected to go for a two pointconversion that could have tied the game, but failed and dug themselves into a deeper hole: 12-14. “Such a time as this,” echoed from the sidelines as the Bobcats took the field for the fourth quarter. Nestucca’s Ronny Moffett got a hold of the ball and ran for 20 yards to bring the Bobcats up to the 5-yard line. Moeller brought it in for his third touchdown of the night.

In 1996 Jaime left medical school and a promising medical career to devote himself to full-time music ministry.

Back to the way they were: Tillamook cross country finishes season with highest place in decades by chelsea yarnell

The Tillamook boys’ cross-country team stood on the starting line of the Oregon State Cross Country Championship race. Hundreds of miles and months of training all led to this moment: a chance to compete at the state’s highest and most prestigious competition. Very few people could understand the unique and special race these seven boys were about to embark on. Luckily, someone who stood on the exact same starting line 25 years ago had guided them all season. In 1988, Pat Zweifel, current Tillamook High School cross country head coach, was competing for the Cheesemakers cross country team. Along with his twin brother, Mark Zweifel, and several other talented runners, the team was making headlines all season long. Returning after winning a state championship the season before, the Cheesemakers were winning major meets, all in pursuit of another title. “Pat and Mark worked themselves almost too hard, but they wanted to be the best in the state and that’s what they became,” Fred Berkey, former Tillamook High School cross country coach said. Just as Pat’s current athletes prepared to run the course around Lane Community College’s campus, so did his team in 1988. That year, Pat finished in second with a time of 16:26.0, just outkicking his twin brother Mark who finished in third with a time of 16:26.5. They were followed by Toby Wagner (16:36), Darrin Brassfield (17:29), and Jason Olsen (17:42) in seventh, 25th and 39th place. With a team total of 49 points, the boy’s team claimed their second championship title in two years. “We’ve been winning the big meets easily all year,” Berkey said in a 1988 interview with the Headlight Herald. “All season I kept thinking ‘there’s got to be someone out there’ but this shows that we were by far the best team in the state.” The Cheesemakers would clinch their third title the following year, along with Pat’s individual state win. The Tillamook boys’ team returned to state a few more times over the next 25 years, but never with the same level of success. Then, Pat took over the program at the start of the 2012-13 season and has geared the team up for massive improvements. The boys’ Cowapa League title a few weeks ago is an enormous illustration of the progress of the team. “I think that it’s really an accomplishment that they won districts this year, that was big,” Berkey said. “A district championship isn’t easy, that’s a hard thing to do. Pat has to be pretty proud of them.”

This last Saturday, one could only imagine the memories Pat felt as the gun went off for the start of the 4A boys’ race as the Tillamook boys surged off onto the course. The boys kept a controlled pace through the first mile, keeping toward the middle and back of the pack. As the race progressed, the Cheesemakers steadily worked their way up. With less than a mile to the finish, Tillamook’s Hector Rojo drove up the final hill sitting in 12th place, only two spots from medaling. Picking off runners one at a time, he was able to pull of an overall eighth place podium finish in a time of 16:33. “It felt awesome, especially since it was my senior year,” Rojo said after the race. As for his team, “I think it was the best we could have done. We’ve had the best team in over 20 years.” Rojo was followed by Eulises Cruz (17:27), Armando Marquez (17:40), Colin Atchison (17:50), Andrew Jenck (18:05), Louis Gibson (18:11), and Colton Weeks (18:11) in 35th, 43rd, 49th, 57th, 63rd, and 64th place. Cruz was the fourth sophomore to cross the finish line in the 4A race on Saturday. Kestrel Bailey also raced Saturday morning, representing the Tillamook girls in the 4A race. She finished in 18th place with a time of 20:02. Her finishing time was the fastest a girl from Tillamook has ever run on the 5,000-meter state course. After both races, the Cheesemakers gathered with their family and friends on the plateau overlooking the finishing line, anxiously awaiting the boys’ team results. They entered the race ranked eighth, but were hoping for a fourth place trophy finish. As the announcer read the top four teams over the sound system, the team earnestly listened. Marshfield, Siuslaw, Phoenix, and…La Salle. A short sigh of disappointment came from the Tillamook crowd, but not for long. The team learned they had finished in fifth with 150 points, just 15 points behind Marshfield in fourth. “We were really gunning for a trophy (top 4), but when you look at how they performed at state, I couldn’t have asked anything more from them,” Pat said. “They were a young, inexperienced team, and they ran our race plan to perfection. Consequently, we beat three teams ranked higher than us to finish in fifth place. Teams in front of us were all high quality, experienced teams, not to mention some of the teams we beat. We definitely got the state’s attention for subsequent years.” A fifth place finish is not a state championship, but it’s just the tip of the iceberg. “From a Tillamook standpoint, that’s where were trying to get back to, the way we were as a team back then,”

The girl’s soccer team plays in their last game of the season against Scappoose Oct. 29. After a confusing start, the Cheesemakers lost 2-5.

Pat said. “We’ve made a difference and a lot of progress [this year].” So what’s the secret to earning a championship title? “I made it fun,” Berkey said. “We did a lot of different activities instead of just running loops or laps.” “ [I] emphasized the individual,” Berkey continued. “There were people who ran and then there were runners... they had made a commitment to themselves and to the team to be out and that was a very important part of my philosophy. And that carried through from the top runners all the way to the last runners.

I would say you never lost. As long as you gave 100 percent you were never a loser.” From 1982-1996, Berkey saw immense success within his program including six trips to state with the girls’ team where they never placed lower than tenth and three boys’ state championships, of which Pat Zweifel was a member. “It was really fun to be part of that dynasty,” Pat said. “Even more than winning, was the closeness of the team, we did everything together... we met in the summertime, we met in the wintertime. We just had a goal together, all as one. That’s what I’ve worked

on the last couple years is that there [has been] very little team bonding and experiences,” Pat said. With a similar understanding of what it takes to create a championship team, good things can only be in store for Tillamook cross country. One successful trip to state under their belts and many returners to both the boys’ and girls’ teams, it’s only a matter of time before the Cheesemakers become the dominator of the sport again. “My goal in two years is to win state,” Pat said. He’s done it many times before, he can do it again.

Confusion on the field ends in a loss for the Lady Mooks by chelsea yarnell

best game of the season last night versus Scappoose,” Christensen-Carney said. “The girls were combining, supporting, switching the sides of the field, communicating, and playing as one out there. I have never been more proud.” The girl’s soccer team ended their season 2-111 overall and 0-9-1 in the Cowapa League. Wins may not highlight this year’s recap, but many other school records were set. The 2013-14 Tillamook girls’ soccer team became the first to a hold a team scoreless (Sept. 4 against Madras, 2-0), had the fewest amount of goals scored against them in a season (52), and scored goals in the most matches than any other Tillamook girls’ soccer team (9 out of 14 matches). “The girls worked hard all summer and fall and their determination to play better soccer paid off. The Lady Mooks soccer team is becoming a dominant soccer team in our league. Next year, with the assistants of several outstanding junior varsity players, we will move up in the rankings,” Christensen-Carney said. “As more and more girls begin to play soccer at younger ages, the more skilled and passionate soccer players we will begin to have playing at the high school level. I am excited for the future of girls soccer in our community.”

The Tillamook girl’s soccer team played their last game of the season at Scappoose on Oct. 29 and lost 2-5. Yet, the game started as a confusing one. Prior to the start of the game, an arranged play was worked out between the two teams, but its unsuccessful execution frazzled the Cheesemakers. Scappoose’s senior goalkeeper suffered a concussion earlier this season and, as a way to honor her as a senior, was to only stand in the goal box for a few moments at the beginning of the game. “We were nice, letting them play their hurt goalie,” Head Coach Daeh Christensen-Carney said. “The plan was we would kick the ball out of bounds on purpose so they could sub her out. Then they would throw the ball back in to us and the game could start.” However, the plan did not go according to plan. The ball was kicked out of bounds by the Cheesemakers and the Indians made the necessary switch. But, when Scappoose attempted to pass the ball back to Tillamook’s goalie, a goal was accidentally scored. “My players were shocked and not sure what had just happened. We all felt tricked,” ChristensenCarney said. The Scappoose coach apologized for his girl’s unsportsmanlike conduct

and tried to work the whole mess out. While devising a solution for the mix-up, the Indians scored an additional goal on the Cheesemakers. Finally an agreement was made. “After talking to the coach, he agreed to give us the goal back and we were allowed an uncontested chance to score,” Christensen-Carney said. The Indian’s goalkeeper stood with her hands behind her back and allowed freshman Saysha Pitchford to score a goal off an assist from Lety Loya. While the situation found resolution, many of the athletes found it hard to concentrate after such confusion. “They scored another quick goal after that as the girls were still in shock over the whole fiasco,” ChristensenCarney said. “A very weird start and a lesson learned.” Within three minutes of the start of the game, the score was already 1-3. Regaining composure, the Cheesemakers responded. Off an assist from junior Shyanne Bellante, Loya found the back of the net for the Cheesemakers second goal, with 11 minutes left in the first half. At the half, the Cheesemakers only trailed by one goal, 2-3. Tillamook had many shot attempts in the second half, but no goal. Scappoose scored two additional goals, bringing the final score to 2-5. “The girls played their

Scott’s current position in the Oregon House Republican Office gives him a unique perspective on how the party is consolidating its message. All Tillamook County Conservatives are cordially invited to attend. For more information contact Thomas Donohue Chairman of TCRCC at 503-965-9970

The new (used) Military Trail Bridge, pictured above, was constructed at the same crossing site that the old aluminum bridge was located. The new (used) 54-foot pony truss structure was dismantled from the Elliott Creek Trail and transported and reassembled. The New Elliott Creek Trail bridge, pictured below, is a 114 foot long pony truss bridge designed by Western Wood Structures, Inc. (from Tualatin Oregon). The general contractor for the construction phase of the project was Oregon Woods Inc.

Browns Camp OHV area. “The Elliott Creek Trail and Military Trail are two of the more popular trails in the Browns Camp OHV area,” said Randy Peterson, recreation program manager for ODF’s Forest Grove District. “These grants made it possible for us to maintain long-term trail access and meet our habitat enhancement and stream restoration goals.”

Off-road enthusiasts and stream habitat alike will benefit from new Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) bridges in the Tillamook State Forest, thanks to grant funds. ODF recently completed construction of two new off-highway vehicle (OHV) trail bridges on the Elliott Creek and Military OHV trails. The project was initiated to replace failing and poorly located bridges, and to enhance and restore stream habitat through trail and bridge relocation. Both trails cross the Devil’s Lake Fork of the Wilson River, which is an important salmon stream in the northern Coast Range near mile marker 33 on State Highway 6. The new 114 foot-long bridge on the Elliott Creek Trail replaced four bridges that were located within the stream channel and floodplain. One was failing, and all risked damage during a major flood or storm. Work included dismantling the old Elliott Creek Trail bridge structures, constructing a new 114-foot bridge, stream restoration and enhancement, and reassembly of one of the Elliott Creek Trail bridges - a 54 foot-long pony truss bridge - on the Military Trail to replace an aging bridge that no longer meets design specifications. The project was funded entirely through grants, including a Yamaha Access Initiative GRANT to support bridge design and engineering work. The GRANT (Guaranteeing Responsible Access to our Nation’s Trails) was awarded as part of the Yamaha OHV Access Initiative promoting safe, responsible riding and open, sustainable riding areas. Two Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) grants, a Recreation Trails Program Grant and an ATV Fund Grant supported bridge construction work. The ATV Fund Program provides funding statewide for OHV recreation. Recreational Trails Program Grants are national grants administered by OPRD for recreational trail-related projects, such as hiking, running, bicycling, off-road motorcycling, and all-terrain vehicle riding. “Bridges are among the highest priority projects for funding from the Yamaha OHV Access Initiative program because they achieve so much for an OHV trail system or riding area,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha ATV/SxS marketing manager. “With the Elliott Creek Trail Bridge, the Oregon De-

BARBARA BENNETT 503-842-7487


ete Steen hosted the 23rd Annual “Hogs ‘R’ Runnin” salmon derby Oct. 11 and 12. A group of former work associates, friends, neighbors and family get together every year to have fun, catch a few salmon and raise money for the Oregon Wildlife Heritage Foundation. The money raised is dedicated to enhancing fish runs in the Tillamook Bay drainage system. The weather was mild, the fishing was good and the fun peaked at the Saturday evening social hour and awards banquet at the Cape Meares Community Center. Winners for the most fish (the “Pigs”) were Bruce Fredrick and Tath Rautio of Portland, Gary Van Gordon of West Linn and Karen Walz with a 24-pounder. Karen generously donated her winnings to the Cape Meares emergency task force for tsunami preparedness. Pete said this year was especially fun for him because his son, Erik, and Erik’s fiancée, Claire Pierce, flew up from



ou have probably heard – it was in the paper last Wednesday – that Don Bacon passed away Oct. 16, of heart complications. (He’d had heart problems for years.) This Saturday, Nov. 9, there will be a memorial gathering for Don at the Garibaldi Museum from 2 to 4 p.m.  Don was Garibaldi’s port manager for 20 years, from 1989 to 2009. Like the port’s current manager, Kevin Greenwood, Don had a background in economic development; prior to going to work for the port, he’d been executive director of the Central Oregon Economic Development Council in Bernd (1983), staff for the Tillamook Action Team – and reportedly one of the people who’d gotten the Economic Development Council started here – and southwest regional manager for the state’s economic development department (1987). I worked with Don a lot





ocal salmon runs could suffer under a new bill according to American Rivers’ David Moryc, speaker at Neskowin-Nestucca-Sand Lake Watersheds meeting last month. The proposed bill would transform all forest lands west of the Cascade Mountains State-wide. “Everything that’s now managed by the Bureau of Land Management would go into a timber trust.” All but the oldest of this immense collection of forest land would be logged in short rotations. “The goal is to aggressively maximize profits in order to fund Oregon Counties,” Moryc explained. Reductions allowed under the bill to reduce riparian zones by half would likely raise water temperatures and contribute to fish death. Drinking water quality could also suffer. Pesticide and herbicide application would be allowed and the Endangered Species Act would essentially be set aside under the bill according to Moryc.

tion at Neskowin. Thanks to all those who participated in the “Great Oregon Shakeout” drill on Oct. 17 at 10:17 a.m. There were 18 people at the Oct. 26 Halloween Party held in the Cape Meares Community Center. There were some scary costumes and some clever and cute ones.  Several prizes were given out for costumes. I didn’t see any carved pumpkin jack-olanterns although there were large and small pumpkins all along the walkway and the side of the street. This year was the best Halloween decorations we have ever had. Thanks to the decorations committee for a good job done.  Jim Petrosich stopped by Oct. 28. Jim lived in Cape Meares and went to Tillamook High School. He is the same age as our son David. Jim introduced me to Sonya. They have a twomonth-old baby girl named Frieda. Frieda was Jim’s mothers name. Frieda and George Petrosich were in a fatal accident on the Wilson River Highway. Their oldest son was in college at the time. Jim and his brother stayed in the Petrosich house and finished high school in Tillamook. Jim continues to make a trip to Cape Meares to visit David and always gives me an update of his life. Always good to see Jim and Sonya and baby Frieda. 

during the four years I was Garibaldi’s city administrator, and learned a lot from him. He’s going to be missed. A lot. If you can bring a potluck dish to the memorial gathering, that would be appreciated; alternatively, you can donate money towards a meat dish. Nora Cox Coutant will be at the museum at 10 a.m. that day if you need to drop off any food.   Happy birthday to Anna Gitschell and Denise Vandecoevering (born Nov. 1), and to Headlight-Herald editor Sayde Moser (born the same day), to Elaine Reiber (Nov. 3), twins Margie and Mary Dockery and Frances O’Farrell (Nov. 4), Sean Haylett (Nov. 6), Dawn Ritter (Nov. 10), Thomas Elwood (Nov. 12), Anita Starcher (Nov. 13), Steven Haapala, Shari Fitzgerald and Stephanie Graham (Nov. 14), Ken Sternes and Rick Wagner (Nov. 15), Sally Couch (Nov. 17), Dennis Latter (Nov. 20), Jerry Reiber and Ashley Thomas (Nov. 22), Dave Bolliger (Nov. 24), Siggi Gierga and Chellisa Vandecoevering (Nov. 26), Robert Graham (whose birthday, Nov. 28, falls on Thanksgiving this year), and to Cynthia Whistler (Nov. 30). Best birthday wishes to all of you. And thanks to Gunnar and Susan for the Birthday Club list.

And Saturday, Nov. 9 is Jerry and Mary Bartolomucci’s 56th anniversary. Mary is manager of the Troller, and Jerry you know as Garibaldi’s “walking councilman.” Congraulations, guys. The Garibaldi Food Pantry will be open Friday, Nov. 8, 10 a.m. till noon at the God’s Lighthouse church, 8th and Garibaldi Ave. (across from the Food Basket). Remember, if you’ve got canned or other nonperishable food to donate, you can bring it to the Garibaldi post office or Tami’s Barber Shop (4th and Garibaldi Avenue) during working hours. Please be generous: the monthly “allocations” for everybody who’s been getting food stamps just got cut Nov. 1, because a “stimulus” thing passed by Congress back in 2009 just expired, and Congress has yet to pass a Farm Bill (which is where the food stamp program “lives,” because it’s run by the U.S. Department of Agriculture). That shortage is going to put more pressure on local food pantries, which are often these folks’ food source of last resort. Do help. Finally, congratulations to Lori Wilcox, who was appointed Oct. 21 to the Garibaldi Tourism Commission. Lori is the former owner of Curves, and was in charge of vendors last Garibaldi Days. Welcome.

Birds and mammals would still have some protection with the slivers of old growth serving as game preserves, but salmon habitat is at serious risk. In South Tillamook County’s Watershed, the most vulnerable salmon habitat, if the Bill becomes law, is The Upper Nestucca River. Learn more at nestuccawaters. org/Nestucca%20AR.pdf Concerned citizens are encouraged to request salmon protections along the Upper Nestucca River in e-mail to or telephone U.S. Senator Ron Wyden through Mary Gautreaux at 503-326-7525. Hebo Women’s Book Club met at my house last Thursday for snacks and conversation around Barbara Ehrenreich’s book, Global Woman. Guests included Marilyn Burkhardt, Shelley Crowe, Ginger HarlowAllen, Sharon Kesey, Ginny Rasmussen, Pat Sears, Patty Shurts, and Nancy Whitehead. The book received opposing reviews- some saw it as an anti-capitalist rant; others considered it an informative, if perhaps outdated, expose of the plight of domestic and sex workers worldwide. Kiawanda Community Center will host a Veteran’s Day Brunch from 10:301:30 on Monday, November 11. The menu includes biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, and fruit with coffee or

tea for $5. Veterans eat for free and are warmly encouraged to attend. R.S.V.P. if possible, so there’ll be adequate food prepared, by calling 503-965-7900. Speaking of Veteran’s Day, a new parking lot within Hebo Cemetery was completed in time for the holiday. I hear that Robert Warren Trucking donated $6,000 in labor and materials for the project; hats off to them. Nesko Woman’s Club will meet at noon on Friday, November 15 at Hudson House Bed and Breakfast Inn South of Cloverdale on U.S. Highway 101. Scott Wells who is an Incident Manager in Wild Land Firefighting will present the program. Visitors are welcome; $13 lunch may be reserved by calling 541-760-2389. Locals will rejoice to again have an inland dinner destination: The Dory Restaurant re-opened October 30. Hours are 6 a.m. - 9 p.m. seven days a week. Happy birthday this week to: Clara Blum, Zakai Chatelain, Jill Ehly, Cindy Green, Bobby Haltiner,  Zach Hudspeth, Roger Hurliman,  Frank Hutchins, Anita Ihnat, Kristen Kendrick, Katie and Kenneth Lane, Justin Lasley, Brooklyn McKillip, Pat Mobley, Syerra Neal,  Teddy Price, Marlene Trent, and Travis Woods.

The cast of “Check Please,” which runs Nov. 15-16 and Nov. 22-23 at the Tsunami Grill in Wheeler.

The Riverbend Players present ‘Check Please’ Dinner Theater is coming to the Tsunami Grill at 380 Marine Dr. in Wheeler, as the Riverbend Players present their new production, “Check Please.” The Riverbend Players are stirring up long-suppressed memories about the “dating game” gone spectacularly wrong with the production of “Check Please” by Jonathan Rand. The show, co-directed by Brian McMahon and Michael Dinan, runs for two weekends: Nov. 15 - 16 and 22 - 23. Join an ensemble cast of Riverbend Players as they explore what happens when people who should not occupy the same planet

are forced into the intimacy of a blind date. There is the couple that makes a beautiful cosmic connection, not surprising, since they are first cousins. Then, like, OMG, there’s Jackie, Guy’s online friend; in person, she still communicates exclusively in capital letters...ROTFL? Then there is Dan the “Movie Trailer Guy,” who speaks exactly the way you are afraid he would. How about Dr. Donna, whose multiple personalities have their own extensive cell phonebooks.... hate to have her bill?! And we mustn’t forget Cleo the psychic. Palms? My dear, anyone can read palms. Cleo reads feet. One final

word: Pirates! AARRGH! Yet we’ve hardly scratched the surface. Brian McMahon and Michael Dinan direct a diverse cast of characters: Sedona Torres, Linda Olsson, Mike Scott, Candace Nelson, Dick Huneke, Marilyn Karr, Mike Sims, Judy Holmes, Ted Weissbach, Janet Robinson. Doors open at 5:30 for cocktail hour and dinner is served at 6:30. The performance begins at 7:30. Cost for a complete evening of dining and entertainment is just $25 in advance, $30 at the door. Seating is limited. Reservations can be made by calling the Tsunami Grill at 503-368-3778.

Sacramento to fish in Pete’s boat for the derby. Several Cape Meares residents participated in the “Great Oregon Shakeout” held Oct. 17 at 10:17 a.m. They were encouraged to “Drop-Cover and Hold” for three to five minutes then proceed to their neighborhood tsunami assembly point. Cape Meares had been registered as a participant in this annual drill. Chuck Ansorge grabbed his bag and headed for the tsunami assembly site on Fifth Street. Chuck’s wife, Marceille, did not participate as she was in Tillamook at the time. It took Chuck only six minutes this time. Usually it takes 10 to 15 minutes. Chris and Jane Spence, Mary Jane Pelson, Jon and Jeannie Lapinski all met at their assembly site. Chris had to replace some of the tools he had taken out of the bag to use. Carol Thwaites went to her downstairs bathroom shower room and Spike and Randy Klobas decided their house was high enough on Second Street to escape the flooding of a tsunami. Sue Beckman and Ann Kanyid were on a trip down to Lincoln City at the time of the drill and looked for roads above Highway 10l where they might be able to escape a tsunami. Unfortunately, they found no signs for directing highway traffic to roads at a higher eleva-

Notes From the Coast


SUGAR BROSIUS 503-653-1449


appy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday Louann Swanson! The whole town misses you! For you who don’t know her, she wrote this column for about 15 years before moving to Vancouver, Washington. She and her cute little doggy “Sugar” are enjoying the city life. Love you, Louann. Phyllis Baker’s granddaughter, Jamie Little Doshier, recently stopped by for the weekend to visit her Aunt Ruth Daugherty. She isn’t just visiting, but picking up some of her “Grammakin’s treasures.” I still have touching memories of her and her sister spending summers with Phyllis and Ruth. In those days they had The Float Ice Cream Parlor and our daughter, Amber worked for them. Fond memories of days gone by. This Saturday Nov. 9 the Tillamook County Master Gardener Association is having their 15th annual tea on Sat, Nov 9th from 1-3 p.m. at the Church of the Nazarene, 2611 Third St., Tillamook. This includes tea sandwiches, soup, desserts, coffee and tea. You will also get two raffle tickets and the event recipe book. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased at the Tillamook County Extension Office or at the door on the day of the event (12:30). You can either buy individual tickets or purchasing tickets for the entire table can reserve tables

alloween is past and Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving is approaching. Next Monday, Nov. 11, is Veterans Day, a day on which we thank all veterans everywhere for the sacrifices they’ve made to keep our country free and strong. Today’s holiday originated with the signing of the Armistice ending hostilities in WWI, “the war to end all wars.” But WWII came along, and after it Korea, Vietnam, and a host of other wars and skirmishes. During the decade following WWII, the holiday was renamed Veterans Day, honoring all veterans of all wars. On Veterans Day this year, VFW Post 2848, with additional sponsorship from Denny’s Restaurant, TLC Credit Union and several other supporters, will hold its 17th annual Veterans Day celebration at the Tillamook Air Museum. While honoring all veterans, past and present, this year’s ceremony celebrates veterans of the Vietnam War. The day begins at 0800 hours with a traditional “SOS” Breakfast, an epicurean delight fondly remembered by all who have worn the uniform, served at the Air Base Café. Col. Bill Hatton, USMCR, Ret., the Master of Ceremonies, will start the ceremony at 0930 hours with presentation and posting of the colors by the U.S. Coast Guard and members of the Clan Macleay Pipe Band. Bert Key, a Vietnam veteran and past Oregon State VFW Commander, will give the keynote address, and the Buffalo Kitty Band will provide musical entertainment, featuring music popular during the Vietnam War. Performing the traditional service anthems will be the High School and community

for 4-8. In a little over a month, Santa Claus will be visiting Rockaway Beach at the Chief Barry Mammano Fire Station. Mark your calendars for Thursday, Dec. 12. I will tell you more as his visit gets closer! And since I’m on the subject, the fire department is starting a new rotation of cadets. Students between 15-18, living in Rockaway Beach, be sure to sign up for the cadet firefighter program. Contact any firefighter, or inquire at the high school for more information. As winter slowly approaches, the folks at the North County Food Bank in Wheeler need gently used winter coats, socks, canned or boxed food or personal hygiene items. A collection box is located in the St Mary’s parish hall. It’s a great time to reassess all that we have and perhaps begin to simplify and in exchange you will be helping a neighbor in need. And if you do know of a neighbor in need, the Rockaway Lions Club is offering Thanksgiving and Christmas Food Baskets. You can drop by the city hall to pick up an application. The Thanksgiving applications must be turned in by Nov. 8 and the Christmas basket applications Dec. 4. Recently we went to Garibaldi to a music jam in the city hall. All I can say is what a pleasure and what fun. Couldn’t meet a nicer group of folks. Last but not least, I was reminded to tell you not to forget to donate to the “Tom Martine Defense Fund.” He has selflessly donated much time and energy as a firefighter in our town and needs our help now. Stop by the US Bank for your contributions. “Be kind to people who aren’t. They’re the ones who need it most.” That’s Rockachorus. Following the ceremony, weather permitting, there may be a flyover of a WWII war bird. Denny’s Restaurant once again is doing its “Shining Star” program as a fundraiser for the VFW Post and its Auxiliary Unit.

The Art of Short Relationships I would be a standup comedian except that I’m slow-witted. If I were heckled on stage my idea of a retort would be, oh yeah? If there are any wannabe standups in my reading audience, I’ve got a great idea for a bit for you. Short relationships. I don’t mean the kind of short relationships I had when I was dating in first grade. My new friend Bill Brown, in the first grade everything was new since preschool hadn’t been invented yet, came up to me and said, I’ve got a girlfriend. You do? How did you get a girl friend? Bill explained, I just asked. I turned away from Bill Brown in the lunch line and there she was, Linda Clark, beautiful and convenient. Will you be my girlfriend, I asked. Linda Clark took a step back, looked me up and down and said, okay. I turned to Bill Brown. I’ve got a girlfriend, too. Over my shoulder I heard my new girlfriend say to the girl next to her, I have a boyfriend, looks like a monkey.

SCHUBERT MOORE 503-965-3681

That’s not the kind of short relationship I’m talking about. I’m talking about the kind you have in the checkout line or in an elevator (keeping in mind in order to have a short relationship in an elevator you’d have to leave Tillamook County). You have short relationships all the time, the tow truck driver who rescues you, the nurse who stabs you with a needle, the attendant at the gas station. I try to keep in mind I’m being served by another human being. One doesn’t have a lot of latitude of action to have a short relationship in an elevator. The relationship consists mainly of facing the

same direction, keeping your mouth shut, and trying not to share your methane. It’s much easier to have a short relationship in a checkout line. To that end I’d just like to warn you, no matter how virtuous you might feel because you have brought a dozen recyclable grocery bags to the register, no matter how much you feel our earth’s very survival as a planet depends on just you, checkers don’t like them. They hate them and they hate you and your children because you use them. They have to examine each one to use it. They especially don’t appreciate you trying to salvage one with a broken handle by tying one of the pieces to the other handle, rendering the opening so small it’s impossible to put anything inside larger than a lemon. More advice. You can’t joke about someone’s job. They won’t get it. If in response to the checker’s question, did you find everything, I say, I couldn’t find the dinosaur eggs, she will send a clerk to get me a dozen dinosaur eggs and

when she finds out I was joking, she won’t give me the sale price on anything. I was checking out and my checker repeated her line mechanically, find everything, a computerized voice. I started to say something to lighten the mood, and then I noticed her mouth was clamped and I could see the muscles in her temple. Hard day? I asked. What? she asked, startled. Has it been a hard day? Our eyes locked. She paused checking. Her eyes went red and brimmed. She resumed checking, nodded and said, a very hard day. She folded the slip, handed me my change, and without looking said, thanks for shopping with us today, Mr. Moore. I leaned in and said, tomorrow will be better. She looked up, her face blank. I started the car, looked out my left window for the mirror to back out, and there she was. I rolled down the window. You dropped this, she said and handed me a twenty. Before I could respond, she said, thanks.

College students’ food pantry project ‘a success’ By Joe Wrabek

By all accounts, the grand opening of Tillamook County’s newest food pantry last week, in Hebo, was a rousing success. Customers began showing up at 11:30 a.m., half an hour before the food pantry was scheduled to open. The proprietors, a group of Oregon State University students, had been there since 9 a.m., and so was the food – a truckload from the Oregon Food Bank’s warehouse in Tillamook. By the time the doors officially opened at noon, families accounting for 35 people had been stocked with food. The OSU students belong to a service club called Enactus. There are 500 Enactus chapters in the U.S., OSU student Emily Lobbato said, “and more in other countries.” The chapters compete with each other for grants. “We got a grant from Campbell’s last year,” Lobbato said. Why Hebo? “It’s a good central location,” said the Oregon Food Bank’s Levi Johnson. There are food pantries in Beaver and

Oregon State University students pose for a picture at the grand opening of their food pantry project in Hebo. Pacific City, but many of southern Tillamook County’s “transportation-challenged” residents have trouble getting there, he said. The Hebo food pantry operates out of the community hall next door to (and controlled by) the Hebo Christian Center, on U.S. Highway 101 near the south end of town.

It will be open the last Saturday of each month, from noon to 2 p.m. Because November’s “food pantry day” will follow Thanksgiving (there are five Saturdays this November), the Enactus students are trying to organize a Thanksgiving baskets event for the day before Thanksgiving.

Mr. Poe here is one captivating fellow. His unique white body with black tail and very affectionate personality just make him irresistible. Poe needs to be an indoor-outdoor cat in a home with no dominant male or aggressive female cats. Otherwise, he is great with laid-back cats, dogs and older kids. His hair is medium in length, so will require a little groom time from you, and he is already neutered, up to date with shots and oh so ready to meet you!
