Deputy DA’s death a suicide By Joe Wrabek

jwrabek@countrymedia.net

Tillamook County Deputy District Attorney Lawrence Carter’s death Dec. 6 has been ruled a suicide, the Headlight Herald has learned. Carter’s body was found at his home in Wheeler by Manzanita police officers Friday morning. “When [Carter] failed to come to work, we requested the on-call Manzanita officer to respond to the house, because [Carter] had been sick,” said District Attorney Bill Porter. “When they got there, they could see he’d killed himself.” Cause of death reportedly was a gunshot wound to the head. “It was a surprise to us all,” said Sheriff Andy Long. In addition to Manzanita police, the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office also responded, Long said, as did Porter and medical examiner Paul Betlinski. “Any unattended death call always includes a call to the DA and medical examiner,” Long noted. There will be no further investigation, the Headlight Herald was told. “There was no doubt it was a suicide,” Porter said. “I’ve been to suicides before.” There was only one set of footprints in the snow at Carter’s house, Long said, which belonged to deputy DA Brian Erickson, who had spent the night at Carter’s house and had left for work earlier that morning. Carter apparently killed himself shortly afterwards. No suicide note was found. Carter, 53, joined the

LONGEST-RUNNING BUSINESS IN TILLAMOOK COUNTY • SINCE 1888

WELSH PLEA DEAL WOULD MEAN PRISON By Joe Wrabek

jwrabek@countrymedia.net

In an unexpected move Dec. 16, a plea bargain was announced in the year-long court case of Anna Welsh of Nehalem, charged with using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct. Welsh’s attorney, John Tuthill, and Tillamook County District Attorney Bill Porter presented the agreement to Tillamook County Circuit Judge Mari Garric Trevino during a hearing Monday afternoon. Welsh, 32, pleaded guilty to two counts of attempting to induce a child to engage in a display of sexually explicit conduct for a person to observe and record in a visual re-

cording. Those are class B felonies, Compensation.

Preschool in Nehalem. Welsh’s formal sentencing is scheduled for 1 p.m. Jan. 6. The case had been set for trial the first week in January, Tuthill said. Welsh has been free on bail since Dec. 14, 2012, under the supervision of her husband and her father-inlaw. During that time, she has been forbidden access to cell phones and computers, and not allowed to go to parks or schools. Welsh was jailed for a brief time for violating the terms of her release agreement when a random search of her residence in March by sheriff’s detectives found electronic devices with access to the Internet, cell phones and unprotected computers.

Milk at the door

Tillamook County: A top spot for job seekers? By Sayde Moser

Levi and Courtney Bennett stand in the “old-school”milk parlor at their farm on Chance Road. Although the milk parlor hasn’t been used for 15 years, said Levi Bennett, the couple plans to use it to offer home milkdelivery services to Tillamook County residents.

Bennett Family Farm starts local milk-delivery service By Sayde Moser

smoser@countrymedia.net

Levi Bennett returned to his hometown of Tillamook six months ago with one thing in mind: To start a milk-delivery service for his neighbors. “It’s something my grandpa always talked about doing,” said Bennett. “My dad wanted to do it as well, but couldn’t make it happen.” Now, thanks to some hard work, good deals and help from his wife, Courtney, Bennett said he expects to have the family’s milk-delivery service up and running by mid-January. Not only will it be one of a kind for Tillamook County, it will be the only milk-delivery service statewide, Bennett said. “Home delivery services are nationwide,” he said. “They’re all over Washington and Idaho. But for some reason, we don’t have any in Oregon.” That may be in part because of co-ops, such as the Tillamook County Creamery Association, which don’t allow members to “double dip.” Also, milk generally isn’t where the money is found, Bennett said. But at $3

a half-gallon, he and his wife consider it affordable enough to entice customers. And with enough regulars, they can make a living doing it. Although the Bennetts aren’t affiliated with the Tillamook County Creamery Association, Bennett said people trust that brand because they can drive around to the farms and see where their food is coming from. “It will be the same with us,” he said. “People can come here and see the

process of milking, pasteurizing and bottling.” The couple’s farm on Chance Road, where they were married in March, comes equipped with a barn, a shop for the bottling and a milk parlor built in the 1970s – which still works. “It probably hasn’t been used in 15 years,” said Bennett. A few farms in Tillamook County continue to use the

See MILK, Page A5

The Bennetts also care for their landowner’s cows, a different breed from the Holsteins the couple will be using for their milk business.

Not only has Tillamook County seen an increase in jobs since last year, it’s now ranked as one of the top 10 counties in Oregon to find a job. That ranking comes from NerdWallet, a company formed in 2009 that provides personal-finance information to consumers, including price comparisons. Its website, NerdWallet.com, was founded in March 2010. “A lot of people out there are struggling with unemployment or underemployment and they’re wondering where they can relocate for a chance at a better job,” said NerdWallet analyst Annie Wang. She said NerdWallet has been compiling data from states and counties to help determine where the jobs are. Those data are gleaned from U.S. Census and Bureau of Labor Statistics sources. Wang said Oregon is the 20th state to be analyzed by NerdWallet. The company determined that the top 10 counties for job seekers are Hood River, Benton, Wasco, Umatilla, Washington, Yamhill, Multnomah, Union, Columbia – and Tillamook. She said NerdWallet’s survey focused on three variables: • Is the county growing? • Can the job seeker afford to live comfortably in the county? • Are most people in the county employed? The first of those criteria involved looking at the change in the working youth population (ages 16 and over) based on census data, Wang said. “We don’t have 2012 data yet,” she said, but in 2011, Oregon saw a 1.4 percent increase in working youth. Wang said, “We wanted

Board delays hiring new county fair manager By Joe Wrabek

jwrabek@countrymedia.net

Tillamook County Fair Board members are wrestling with whether the new county fair manager should be a local resident. The board already has received four or five resumes, said its president, Rita Hogan. “Do we want to look at them and start there?” she asked her fellow board members during a recent meeting. There is a general consensus to advertise the job – but only in Tillamook County. County Commissioner Bill Baertlein, who was at the meeting, offered the services of the county’s human resources department. It “can get the word out and do a pre-sort

for you,” Baertlein said. “They can do some of the legwork.” Hogan suggested planning a workshop for Jan. 7, one week before the fair board’s next scheduled meeting, to go over the manager’s job description and set deadlines. She then recommended a deadline of Jan. 30 for receiving applications. “We’ll start interviews in February,” she said. In other business, the fair board reviewed a handful of recent events, including a bazaar held Nov. 15-16 that filled the convention center and generated a $4,018 profit. Hogan said a decision not to limit vendors at the event to handcrafted items prompted additional revenue. “The spring bazaar was a big success for the same reason,” she said.

Pacific City Chamber honors local leaders By Sayde Moser

smoser@countrymedia.net

They might not live in an incorporated city, but it’s hard to dispute that residents and organizations in the Pacific City area know how to get things done right. Much of that work has been conducted through the Pacific City–Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce, and still more through a number of business alliances and networks. “The Chamber has been superb at balancing the responsibilities of promoting commerce with taking care of civic needs in our community,” said past president Jeremy Strober. “There has been so much community collaboration this year.” Several of those success stories were told during the recent annual awards banquet hosted by the Chamber: • Dennis Mckay and Jodie Dodge, owners of Nestucca Adventures on Brooten Road, were selected as this year’s “dynamic duo.” The two bought the former Pacific City Marina in 2012, restored the structure and then created a business that’s been “bringing exciting recreational opportunities to our area,” said Chamber president Merrianne Hoffman. • As for the organization of the year, the Nestucca Valley Community Alliance was chosen for its partnership with Tillamook Lightwave. That relationship was formed several years ago after a handful of community leaders approached

Tillamook Lightwave about it purchasing the abandoned cable landing station. Tillamook Lightwave had use for the station, and the community wanted to see a portion of the site set aside for its own needs. The alliance was formed to propel that agreement forward. Just recently, a lease was signed for a new multi-use park on more than 2 acres of the cable landing station site. • Vicki Goodman was recognized as volunteer of the year, thanks to her endeavors to organize the local Chamber over the past several months. “She came in and took over our office,” said Hoffman, organizing volunteers, cleaning up files and emails, and volunteering countless hours. • Citizen of the year was Kathryn Hedrick, honored for her involvement with a variety of community events, as well as her accomplishments as superintendent of the Nestucca Valley School District. That included purchasing two new buses and adding several safety features, providing the district with a full-time counselor and returning the district to a five-day school week. • The business of the year was Windermere West Real Estate of Pacific City. Hoffman said brokers Susan Amort and Jacie Voegeli helped put together the awards banquet last year, assisted with Christmas tree lighting, sponsored youth baseball and created an award-winning float for the Dory Days parade.

Turkeys for Tillamook Tillamook cheese factory employees collect turkeys and hams for local families in need By Sayde Moser

smoser@countrymedia.net

When the Tillamook County Creamery Association heard that the Regional Food Bank of Tillamook County was running low on turkeys for the holidays, the company put out a call to its employees. “They said they would match any turkey that their employees

bought for the food bank,” said Melissa Carlson-Swanson, local director of the Oregon Food Bank. More than 140 turkeys and 80 hams later, Carlson-Swanson said, “It was a lot more than we were expecting them to come up with.” For its part, the food bank will ensure the hams and turkeys get to the appropriate families.

Each year, said CarlsonSwanson, it’s a challenge for her organization to come up with enough food during the holidays. The food bank serves 2,000 individuals a month. “It’s all based on donations,” she said, “and this year we just didn’t get the same level as years before. So we had to put a call out

to the community to help us out a bit.” Cheese factory employee Aimee Gobel said the plant’s workers lined up to help. Anthe local Fred Meyer and Safeway stores pitched in with reduced pricing on their turkeys and hams. To contribute, call the regional food bank at 503-842315.

New owner for Five Rivers retirement center By Sayde Moser

smoser@countrymedia.net

Since Prestige Senior Living took over the Five Rivers Retirement and Assisted Living Community on 12th Street in Tillamook, some things have been looking up for the senior community. “We used to just be privatepay,” said Five Rivers executive director Leslie Sauer, “but we’ll be opening up the doors to Medicaid now.” Five Rivers previously had accepted Medicaid payments, Sauer said, but for the past five years those on Medicaid had been turned away. “This is big news,” said Sauer, who has been working at Five Rivers since May. “It’s a great step and it’s the right thing to do.” On the first of December, Prestige Senior Living took over ownership of the facility from Bonaventure. Prestige Senior Living has as many as 60 facilities in the Northwest. “They’re an older company,” Sauer said, “so they have a lot of good practices in place already and a great support team.” Five Rivers now also is considering offering memory care for the first time, which “is just in the preliminary stages,” Sauer said. Memory-care facilities must be located on the building’s ground floor, said Sauer, “so the question is, can Tillamook County support 32 apartments

Residents and others gather in the living room for card games at Five Rivers retirement home, which recently was bought by Prestige Senior Living. for memory care?” That may be too many, she said, although the closest memory-care facilities are in Lincoln City and Seaside. “A lot of families have to send their family members out of town and don’t get to see them very often,” she said. “This could help keep people closer to their loved ones.” Five Rivers currently has both independent and assistedliving capabilities. Rooms come as studios, and

one- and two-bedroom layouts. Independent living areas are equipped with a full kitchen, living room and walk-in showers. Each living space has a pull-cord to alert the staff to any emergencies. “Management isn’t on site 24 hours a day, but we are staffed 24/7,” Sauer said. The community spaces include a small movie room, library, laundry rooms, and a large dining room serving three meals a day plus snacks.

“Our independent residents don’t have to come down for all three meals,” Sauer explained. “They can come and go as they please. We use the meal system to track whether they’re here or not without intruding on their freedom.” Arts and crafts are offered, and there’s a fill-time activities director, live music every week, trips to the casino in Lincoln City and other activities.

Holiday cat care tips by Karen Schrader United Paws

With the holidays approaching, it’s time to deck the halls and host festive get togethers. If you have a cat in the house, the holidays can present added dangers for your pet. United Paws would like to share these few simple tips to keep your pet merry and safe this holiday season! Cat safe décor: Cats are curious by nature and they look at decorations as new toys to play with. When setting up your tree, make sure it is anchored so your cat can’t tip it over if he attempts to climb the tree. Also, make sure light cords are secured. Avoid any tinsel and ornaments that could be toxic. Hang pet safe ornaments on the bottom third of the tree and breakable ones high up or forgo them entirely. Tinsel and tenterhooks: Needles, tinsel, hooks, ribbon, foil and other holiday decorations can be tempting toys for your cat and are dangerous if eaten. Foliage follies: Mistletoe, berries and poinsettias are toxic to animals and can cause an upset stomach or worse reaction. If you have a live tree and your cat is tempted to drink out of the tree stand, skip the chemicals in the tree water. No doggie bags for kitties: A change of diet, even for one meal, can cause an upset stomach or diarrhea for a cat. Skip the table scraps, bones and chocolate and keep your garbage secure. Let your guests know not to feed your pet scraps or secure your pet in another room at mealtime when you have company. Holiday wonder-slumber-land: As you prepare to entertain for the holidays, create a safe area for your pet during the hustle and bustle of the season in a spare bedroom, office or on another floor of your

home. This will cut down on potential escapes when company comes and goes as well. Shopping for kitty Claus: Cats love to play and one way to distract them from the temptations of the tree and other decorations is to get them some gifts of their own. A new catnip toy or wand toy can help distract your pet. If you don’t already have a cat tree or condo, consider adding one to give your cat something to climb, instead of the Christmas tree. Have an emergency plan: You should always have an emergency plan just in case something happens with your pet. This is very important if your veterinarian is either closed for the day or if your pet needs more intensive treatment than your vet may offer. Know where your local emergency veterinary hospital is located and the best route to get there in case you need it. Nearest pet emergency hospitals: The closest emergency clinics to Tillamook County are in the Portland metro area: Tanasbourne Veterinary Emergency (http://tanasbourneveter.com) at 2338 NW Amberbrook Dr., Beaverton, OR, (503) 629-5800, open 24 hours weekends and holidays, Mon-Fri 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. Dove Lewis Animal Hospital (http://www. dovelewis.org), 1945 NW Pettygrove, Portland, OR, (503) 228-7281, open 24 hours/day every day of the year, including Christmas, offers complete emergency specialty care for pets and injured wildlife.

Readers’ Open Forum Why not embrace the missionary barge? In a county that is always looking for jobs and tourists, why don’t we look at the missionary barge as a good thing? It can be seen from shore. We get the family coming in to town and spending money at our local business while they build it. We can have tourism from all over the state coming, spending money here, and getting excited as they watch the ‘walls’ go up! The newspaper can do weekly updates on their progress and be linked with the families web-site. We can have the family appear at local business’ to show their plans and talk about what is next, bringing people in to business to spend money. Schools could get involved as to the process and have kids learn about building, sailing, etc. Could the family host other families to come aboard and see what they are doing? Where is Habitat for Humanity? Can’t they get involved in helping them build a dream that will send them off to build others? Knowing that this isn’t permanent, why can’t we be the county that accepted a family (barge and all), to help them build their dream? Being known as a county that came together to help build up a family and send them off to build up others. What a testament to Tillamook that would be! Seriously, I think we are looking at this all wrong. We could be gathering together and supporting them and becoming their sister county, or we could tear them apart and make them feel unwelcome. We have way more to gain with them being here then they do, if we play our cards right. Does our temporary inconvenient view of the bay take precedent over serving humanity? Do we really want to be the county that made this family leave? Or the one that helped them? Tabitah Berrencourt Pacific City

Mr. Josi has been aware of this issue since he was Oregon State Representative of our district and had expressed some interest a decade or more ago. Back then, several plats were leased. Now, 21 are leased and three more are requested. A map of Netarts Bay and the plats can be obtained from the ODA along with the ORS pertaining to the oyster industry. It is already quite late. Mr. Josi, who has clammed on Netarts Bay and the other commissioners should take action. Tillamook County is well known for clamming and the recreational asset is extremely important and should be a major priority. Agencies that should be active such as the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife are extremely relaxed on this issue and from the last report by Mathew Hunter, the oyster industry is extremely beneficial. This is very questionable and much literature printed does not substantiate his statements. I have sent the commissioners articles as to this abuse of our public lands and have not known of any response or concern to the general public. This letter is not written in my behalf but for the general public and what is and has been happening to their lands. As I said, this is a priority. As Mr. Josi said in his article on the murrelet, he speaks of a matter of time in his quote “Because it’s only a matter of time before our Tillamook and Clatsop State Forests face the same crisis. When that happens and if the current PSG protocol is used, our mills will be shutting down and family wage jobs will be lost. Our county and school budgets will see significant cuts. Two sales have already been halted.” This issue of our estuaries is present and not a matter of time. Action should have been taken and must be taken now. John Stahl Netarts

Medical marijuana Estuaries need to take is a scam precedence over forests The law of unintended This letter is not a protest of commissioner Tim Josi’s article in response to the marbled murrelet article that ran Dec. 4 in the Headlight Herald, but rather of his priorities of land use, namely Netarts Bay and the neglect of public lands being leased and no longer available to public recreation. A recent article in the Headlight Herald referring to commercial clamming and objection to it is minor compared to the land that has been leased; presently three more requests are being applied to the Oregon Department of Agriculture, which I might add is not overly interested in public concern as expressed in the past.

Here is what happened: I live in Pacific City. A “neighbor” (who is also a renter) moved a junk 27foot RV trailer along my front driveway - 2 1/2 feet from my property line at the closest point. He then stripped out the inside, put in grow lights and heaters and filled it with marijuana plants for himself and one other person giving him the right to grow about 12 adult plants and about 36 seedlings.

I have been to the DEA, the state police, the sheriff, the county commissioners, and representative Gomberg, all to no avail. I can give you an idea of the odor- like having a trailer full of skunks next door. And I am very concerned about the criminal element that follows free standing grow sites and the effect all this is having on my property values. The marijuana act does not limit the location of a grow site. It could be next to a school, a church, a daycare center, a half way house, or next to you. I don’t use marijuana—never have—and I don’t believe in the medical scam that it currently being used to justify its use. It is a very dangerous drug for the individual and society with serious cognitive and behavioral consequences, but if someone wants to grow and use it legally, OK, just not in my front yard please. The commissioners are reluctant to do anything until after the Health Authority finalizes its rules. I want the commissioners to require a conditional use permit for a free standing grow operation and get acceptance from affected neighbors and businesses. I think this is necessary to protect communities from “marijuana invasion” and all the problems that are associated with it. I would like your help. Please voice your concern to our commissioners and our representatives you could be next. Leonard Leis Pacific City

Walk a minute in my shoes I have so much history in this town. And none of it is good. I’ve lived here since 1989 and in that time, I’ve only been off probation twice. I landed in the federal penitentiary when I was 18 and been in and out of Tillamook County jail. It was all because of my relationship with drugs. Awhile ago I found Celebrate Recovery. Now, I am 110 percent done with that life style. I don’t dream about drugs. I don’t talk about drugs. I’ve walked away from it completely. I’ve been off probation since Aug. 7 and today I’m 168 days clean and sober. I’ve been able to hold down a good job and I even bought my kids Christmas presents for the first time in years. I’m even working on getting certified to teach a 12-step program directly in the jails. I just wish more people would recognize that. Living in this county and trying to overcome your past and people’s perceptions of you is tough – particularly the parole and probation officers. I was recently marked as a “known drug user,” preventing someone I’m close with

who is on probation from being able to see me more than once a week at Celebrate Recovery. But this isn’t just about me – it’s about everyone who has walked in my shoes, been in trouble with addiction and finally hit their rock bottom and come to the conclusion that that life is miserable. My hope is for people to start seeing not only myself but everyone as they are today, not who they’ve been. to fo Fortunately for me, wher there’s been enough people settle who have been willing to there give me a second chance. B These people help me to to fin realize I am doing the right much thing. They hold me acliving countable for my actions looke and it feels really good and incom encourages me to keep mov-one c ing forward. We’ve all madewage mistakes and need forgive- said W ness. I wouldn’t withhold cities that from you, all I ask is be re you don’t withhold it from up to us either.

I would like to see an article about common sense “do’s and don’ts” while on the trail such as ‘leave no trace.’ That would be a good refresher for us all and it may help reset a respect for our environment and each other.

old-fashioned milk parlors, he said, but most of those were built in the 1950s or later. The Bennetts will deliver milk weekly to their customers, with a half-gallon being the minimum. The milk will be in glass bottles, which can be left for pick-up the following week. “We have a fancy bottle washer to wash all the bottles,” Bennett said. The whole process is pretty “old-school” he acknowledged, but the couple is hopeful it will be greeted with open arms by the county’s residents. “The milk is all-natural,” said Bennett, meaning there are no additives, preservatives or chemicals. “It’s better for you than store-bought milk.” “And it tastes better,” chimed in Courtney Bennett. Conventional milk is pasteurized using hot temperatures, Levi Bennett said, which kills all of its vitamins and enzymes. Still, the milk enjoys a longer shelf life as a result. “Our milk is pasteurized at a low temperature,” he said, “but isn’t homogenized. “ The homogenization process breaks down the fat globules, so your body can’t digest them, he said. “By us not doing that, your body is

able to use everything in the milk. “There’s a higher fat content, but it’s all absorbed [by your body] as energy.” The Bennetts will have 10 cows, producing roughly 100 gallons a day, which could serve about 500 customers at an average of a gallon and a half of milk a week. Levi Bennett said he hopes that even people used to store-bought milk will try theirs. “Try it for a month and then go back to storebought milk for a week,” he said. “I guarantee you’ll be calling us, just based on taste alone. It’s a lot sweeter, almost like candy.” Courtney Bennett said the pair will be tracking their customers’ milk intake and sending out monthly invoices with their milk deliveries. And they’re setting up a website where people can pay for, increase or reduce their orders – or put their home delivery on hold for a vacation or other planned absence. Eventually, said the Bennetts, they’ll begin delivering farm-fresh eggs from Misty Meadows, plus butter and bricks of Tillamook cheese.

to focus on that, because where younger workers settle is a key indicator that there are jobs there.” But simply being able to find a job doesn’t mean much when the cost of living is too high. So, “We looked at median household incomes to gauge if someone could make a good wage in the community,” said Wang. “In some bigger cities, the cost of living can be really high, so wages go up to accommodate that.” NerdWallet decided to balance a region’s medium income with its monthly homeowner costs to “make sure workers were making a good wage and could afford to live there.” The third variable was the unemployment rate, Wang said. “Tillamook County’s unemployment rate is way below the state and nation’s average,” she said. “That’s a really good

indicator that there’s a lot of economic opportunity there.” Such information is important for job seekers, said Wang, because, “People are saying there are jobs out there, but where’s the concrete data to support that? We wanted to take the data and present it in a way that people could understand. “ She added, “Job seekers are looking for more than just the perfect job. They also want to consider lifestyle and environment and other factors not quantified in an employment-only study.” Wang said that while the study didn’t focus on various employment patterns, it was evident that northwestern Oregon is recovering well from the recent recession.

Scott West of Travel Oregon, the state’s tourism agency, discusses possible structures for the new “contracting entity” designated to allocate funds that will be generated by Tillamook County’s new lodging tax.

Who will get the county’s lodging tax money? By Joe Wrabek

jwrabek@countrymedia.net

County commissioners agreed last week to have the Economic Development Council of Tillamook County (EDC) handle the allocation of the tourism side (70 percent) of the funds generated by the county’s newly authorized transient lodging tax. Nineteen people representing north, central and south Tillamook County recently attended a workshop that included presentations by the county’s chief of staff, Paul Levesque; Travel Oregon’s Scott West; and EDC vice-chair Doug Olson. Olson told the commissioners that the economic development council would help allocate the tax proceeds, but for no more than the next three years. Olson said, “Not everyone on our board agrees we should be doing this longterm.” “We’re going to go slow,” added Tillamook Bay Community College president Connie Green, who serves on the EDC’s board of directors. “If we don’t do some good planning, we won’t get off to the right start.” Olson asked county officials to advance up to $100,000 if the EDC incurs any “start-up expenses.” “The EDC has no money for this purpose,” he told the commissioners. Olson promised that the

EDC’s deliberations would be “open and noticed,” adding, “No deals [will be] made in back rooms and the dark of night.” EDC board members also asked for an appeals process. “If people believe a mistake is being made, they ought to have the opportunity to talk about it,” Olson said. One of the EDC’s tasks as the “contracting entity” under the county’s lodging tax ordinance will be to create an advisory committee consisting “of transient lodging providers, citizens, local government representatives, members of tourism promotion agencies and, if desired, independent consultants from the tourism promotion industry,” according to the ordinance. The makeup and terms of office of the committee would be specified in the county’s contract with the EDC. That advisory committee differs from the “transient lodging tax review committee” being created by the county commissioners, Levesque emphasized. That committee, consisting of an attorney, an accountant, a transient lodging tax collector and two “lay members,” is set up to hear appeals about tax collections, not the distribution of the money, said Levesque. State law requires that 70 percent of the county lodging taxes be spent on the promotion of tour-

ism or the construction of tourist-related facilities. The county already has decided that the remaining 30 percent will be spent on county roads. Any cost of collecting the tax must come from the 30 percent as well. Travel Oregon’s West told workshop attendees there are about 100 cities and counties in Oregon that levy a lodging tax. He said that to spend the money, some contract with an independent visitors bureau and some with a Chamber of Commerce “that embraces tourism as a strategy.” Still others, said West, keep their allocation process “in house,” using a local city or county department. “All work well when they work well, and poorly when they work poorly,” he said, although the groups that include lodging industry representatives work better. Public comment during the meeting generally favored having the county contract with the EDC – with a few caveats. “The word on the street is, this is a Tillamook and southcounty game,” Wheeler Mayor Stevie Burden said, “which won’t benefit people further north.” Just one EDC board member comes from north of Garibaldi, Burden noted. “How are municipalities going to be represented?” “It’s county-wide,”

countered Mike Reck, who owns the Craftsman Bed and Breakfast in Pacific City. It shouldn’t matter where appointees to the advisory committee live, he said. “The cities already have lodging taxes,” added Reck, “and a paid person to deal with their promotion. They have resources already.” “There’s a lot of politics in appointing the advisory committee,” insisted Tillamook Chamber of Commerce executive director Justin Aufdermauer. “What the EDC proposed works,” he conceded, but a separate organization should be created with a board appointed by the county commissioners. Eugene Tish, proprietor of the Garibaldi House hotel, was one of several who applauded the commissioners’ decision to create a county-wide lodging tax. That it passed by a wide margin “is a real testament to the confidence voters have in the three of you,” he told commissioners. “I think the consensus of the board [of commissioners] is to develop an (intergovernmental agreement) with the EDC,” County Commissioner Mark Labhart concluded. That agreement will be prepared by Labhart and Levesque, in concert with Olson and EDC executive director Dan Biggs, the Headlight Herald was told.

brothers and three sisters. Dave grew up in the Nestucca Valley. He took pride in his Swiss heritage. His family has a long history of dairy farming. After high school, David served his country in the United David Hurliman States Air Force as a jet engine mechanic. In 1971, Dave and Susan moved to Parkdale, Ore. to become orchardists. Along with raising fruit and a family, Dave also worked full time as a mechanic for Hood River County. Upon retirement, Dave split his time between Cloverdale and Parkdale. St. Joseph Catholic Church is where Dave was baptized, received his First Communion, was formed in his faith, served as an Altar Boy and was married. He came home to St. Joseph to go to his final resting place. St. Joseph is where his grandparents, parents, brothers, and sisters grew as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins. Some stained glass windows bear the name Hurliman as a testament of the family foundation and roots in this parish. Dave enjoyed participating in the Elks club. He was a sportsman, taking great joy in being in the outdoors with his loved ones hunting and fishing. He also liked craftsmanship, often inventing a contraption, rather than purchasing something that didn’t completely accomplish

the task. He enjoyed farming, taking pride in growing the highest quality fruit that he could. When not in the woods or at the river, Dave was often found on the tractor doing “one more thing.” Dave’s sense of humor was legendary. The only thing he enjoyed more than a good joke, was a funny story about his friends and family. A memorial service was held on Saturday, Dec. 14. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be made in David’s name to a local chapter of hospice.

County to address ‘local access roads’ By Joe Wrabek

jwrabek@countrymedia.net

What happens when a privately owned road becomes labeled an official tsunami evacuation route? That’s the dilemma facing the Tillamook County Public Works Department, director Liane Welch recently told the county’s roads advisory committee. Such roads are termed “local access roads” because they’re private roads not built to county standards, said Welch, and have never been taken into the county’s road system. There are 35 miles of local access roads in Tillamook County, Welch said, “and most of them are a mess.” Tillamook County officials used to maintain the roads – the only county in Oregon to do so, she said – but stopped in 2008 when federal forest funds, the mainstay of the county’s road funding, headed for zero. Since then, the county has

repaired local access roads only in an emergency. Larry Rouse of Pacific City lives on one such road – Elderberry Road – which has been designated an evacuation route on official maps. “These are the maps we hand out at hotels and at the fire hall,” Rouse said. Yet Elderberry Road hasn’t been maintained. Water, including runoff from several side roads, drains down the middle of Elderberry Road, creating deep ruts. “The fire chief says he’s worried he can’t get a fire truck up there,” Rouse said. He suggested that his Pacific Heights Neighborhood Association raise 25 percent of the $60,000 estimated to fix the road. Welch said county officials technically could do that, “But it would set a precedent.” Roads committee chair Curt Schonbrod agreed. “I think the feeling in this room is we don’t want to open up this door.”

Criminal Convictions On July 8, Elda Elvia Flores, 31, pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of intoxicants, a class A misdemeanor, committed on or about Nov. 3, 2012.

Bobcats bounce back after break Pirates earn first league win 12/11 Nestucca: 51 Santiam: 48

12/13 Nestucca: 61 Vernonia: 50

by Chelsea Yarnell sports@orcoastnews.com

After missing four free throws previously in the game, Keenan Wenrick went to the line with the pinnacle game points ahead of him. The Bobcats only led by two points with seven seconds left in the game. These missed shots and a Wolverine rebound could cost them the win. Appearing calm and collected, Wenrick dribbled the ball, paused, went up, and made the first. It was now a three-point lead for the Bobcats. For the second game in a row, the Bobcats squeezed by for another close win of the season. On Dec. 11, Nestucca played the Wolverines of Santiam and pulled of a last minute win: 51-48. In the opening quarter, the game’s pace was substantially slower compared to the Bobcat’s first game against Waldport on Dec. 4. “I think the slower tempo was due to the boys just not having the same amount of energy they had during the Waldport game,” Head Coach Jim Kiser said. “Also, Santiam played a more aggressive style of defense that forced our offense to get a little stagnant.” The slow play resulted in a low scoring first quarter with the Bobcats leading by two: 10-8. “I don’t think we had our legs under us last night,” Kiser said. “We had a four-day break from basketball due to the weather and I think there was some hangover there. Offensively we weren’t as smooth as the Waldport game; [we] made some sloppy mistakes.” The Bobcats pulled through with the largest lead of the evening at the end of the second quarter, leading 29-17, but their careless errors caught up with them in the second half. “We had the 12-point halftime lead and I thought we could have come out of the locker room and opened it up a bit more on them, but again, we looked pretty slow after halftime,” Kiser said. “Defensively I thought we played

The Nestucca Bobcats recently beat Vernonia and Santiam, improving their record to 3-0 overall and 1-0 in the Northwest League. The Bobcats host Neah-KahNie this Friday. pretty well until midway through the third quarter when the legs gave out on us.” As the rebounding legs of the Bobcats began to give out, the Wolverines started to gain more ground. The Bobcats continually attempted to block shots and disregard boxing out, resulting in a seven point game at the end of the third quarter: 40-33. The fourth quarter started even worse for the Bobcats. The Wolverines went on an 8-point run, earning their first lead of the second half. The Bobcats finally broke the drought and scored two additional baskets. With four minutes to go, the game was tied at 44-44. “I’ve been really impressed with the boys ability to bounce back after teams make runs on us,” Kiser said. “We lost the lead late in the game last night and no one panicked, just came back and answered.” Santiam reached their maximum seven fouls at the end of the fourth quarter, so their following individual fouls on Wenrick in back-toback plays, sent him to the free throw line; he went 0-4. Wenrick’s missed shots increased the intensity of the game as both teams realized a mere couple points would separate the winner and the

loser. With 2:15 to go, Max Kirendall went to the line and made two free throws to bring the Bobcats up to speed at 50-44. After a timeout, the Wolverines executed a fake pass around the Bobcat defense into an open key to score 4850, with a minute to go. On the next Bobcat possession, the Wolverines forced a turnover. A Bobcat foul on the shot sent the Wolverines to the line, shooting two. The first shot was a miss. The second shot went up, both teams crouched; it missed. The teams scrambled for the ball. Santiam called a timeout as they earned possession from a jump ball with 14.7 seconds to go. Santiam threw the ball in; it was kicked and deemed a dead ball. They went at it again; that time it was a jump ball for the Bobcats Kiser called a timeout with 9.3 seconds to go. Wenrick received the ball from the baseline and aggressively started down the court. The Wolverines purposely left him wide open and then went in for an intentional foul: a strategic attack on a player with a poor shooting record. But, Wenrick proved he was the wrong choice. He

made the first free throw and secured the Bobcat lead. Santiam attempted a last second three-pointer, but missed. Nestucca earned their second win: 51-48. Max Kirkendall led the team with 18 points and Brett Elder led with nine rebounds. The Bobcats’ season was off to a great start, but Kiser was not quite satisfied. “I wasn’t real happy with their play, but good teams find ways to win games and we’ve done that twice now. We’ll need to play better going forward, but we’re definitely capable of doing that.” And the Bobcats were capable. They saw success once again on Friday night when they traveled to Vernonia and beat the Loggers 61-50. “Vernonia was a wild game,” Kiser said. “There was a lot of atmosphere in the gym, strong school spirit from both sides... As for the game, we definitely had our legs back and played the most complete game we have all year,” Kiser said. Their third win this year already ties their season record from last year when they went 3-19. Brett Elder held the leading score with 21 points and 22 rebounds, followed by Max Kirkendall with 19 points and 6 boards. Keenan Wenrick also had a notable night with 9 points. “Keenan Wenrick really worked hard against their best player,” Kiser said. “Offensively we did a really good job of attacking the rim and getting Vernonia into foul trouble.

A win for the first league game of the season started the Lady Pirates on the right track, but frustrations still rose from the sidelines Friday night. “We just need to finish the lay-ins. If we can make our lay-ins, we easily [could] have a 20-point lead,” Head Coach Corey Douma said. “We could have won by a lot more, we just need to make it easier on ourselves.” Despite the Pirates’ reluctance to drive to the basket, they were still able to pull off a 25-16 win over the Falcons. “Offensively, we still need to figure out

how to get more points on the board, it would be nice to break thirty,” Douma said. “They’re offensively playing a little tentative, (probably because it’s early in the season). We just haven’t found that rhythm yet.” After dabbling with their full-court press on Wednesday against Jewell, Douma chose to put pressure on the Falcons the whole night. “Defensively, I thought we played great. We played solid, we did what we needed to do.” Brittany Scull led the Pirates with 6 points. The girls travel to play at Nestucca this Friday.

Bowling Scores

Nestucca and NKN compete at Culver Invite by Chelsea Yarnell sports@orcoastnews.com

Both Bobcat and Pirate wrestlers traveled to the Culver Wrestling Tournament this past weekend. Twenty other teams created a deep and talented competition pool; only a few local wrestlers were able to place. Nestucca’s Jordan Whittles was the only finisher for the Bobcats. Going 3-1, he earned a third place finish in the 106-weight class division. His only loss was to the eventually champion from Madras. Whittles’ finish helped the team place 14th out of 22 schools. “We put in a better performance then we did on Tuesday, but we still experienced some growing pains,” Nestucca Head Coach Cameron Mitchem said. “We

are a very young team and it shows at times.” Several of the Bobcats came within reach of placing including Anthony Sutherlin at 195-pounds and Ryan Leslie at 138 who both went 2-2. Leslie went against returning state competitor Chasen Clayton of Lowell and beat him 10-5 in the first round. “That was a big win for Ryan. They wrestled again to go into the placement rounds and Ryan lost a close match,” Mitchem said. Bobcat Willard Neary also wrestled in his first varsity tournament this weekend in the 106-class. While he went 0-2, Willard only weighs about 90 pounds. “That is a lot of weight to give up for him,” Mitchem said. The Bobcats host their home invite this Saturday.

Bobcat Results: Jordan Whittles (106): 3-1 Anthony Sutherline (195): 2-2 Ryan Leslie (138): 2-2 Willard Neary (106): 0-2 Noah Geil (132): 0-2 Cody Fouche (138): 0-2 at 138, Norberto Soto (145): 1-2 Nate Parks (160): 2-2 Chase Cook (220): 1-2 On the Pirate side, the team finished just one place behind the Bobcats in 15th. Logan Romig finished third at 138-pounds and Alejandro Quintana took sixth at 152-pounds. “I thought Logan Romig had a great tournament finishing third and even avenged a loss from last years state tournament,” NKN Head Coach Greg Kelley said. “[He pinned] a kid from Lowell who not only

knocked him out of the tournament, but went on to place third at state as well.” Like the Bobcats, a few Pirates also came close to placing including Matt Clayton at 126-pounds and Dallas Donovan. “Over all I thought we wrestled tough and had a good showing in a very tough tournament,” Kelley said. “All in all I thought the team wrestled tough and is making steady progress towards where we want to be at the end of the season. However, more hard work is always needed to get to where we want to be. We can never be satisfied with our accomplishments and need to continuously strive to get better.” The Pirates will compete at the Wahkiakum Tournament in Cathlamet, Wash. this Saturday.

Cheesemakers win season opener 12/10 Tillamook: 66 Molalla: 47

12/13 Tillamook: 62 Central: 69

by Chelsea Yarnell sports@orcoastnews.com

The Tillamook boys finally had their season opener Dec. 10 against Molalla. The pep band started the night off right: rocking and chanting for the team as the Cheesemakers warmed up to take on the Indians. At first impression, Molalla seemed to be a fair competitor for the Mooks, but then a case of buttery fingers plagued the Indians. Several missed passes benefited the Cheesemakers in the first quarter, as did several of the Indians’ travels. The Mooks easily pulled away in the first quarter, out scoring Molalla 19-9. But, poor execution was not only for the Indians; the Cheesemakers also demonstrated mistakes of early season play. Several times, Mook players drove to the basket and when met with trouble, mistakenly passed out to an Indian. Despite the Mook turnovers, the Cheesemakers earned an even greater lead in the second quarter, keeping the Indians at only 13 points for several minutes. By the end of the second half, the Cheesemakers led 32-15. The Mooks kept up their consistency in the second half and won their first game of the season: 66-47. The boys also traveled to Central on Friday to play the Panthers, but lost 62-69. The Cheesemakers travel to La Salle Prep on Friday. Courtesy Photo

The Tillamook boys’ basketball team won their season opener at home against Molalla 66-47. In their second game, the Cheesemakers lost by seven points to the Panthers of Central. The boys’ team travels to La Salle Prep this Friday.

Bobcats reclaim the Pirates hope to improve defense after league loss luck of the Irish 12/13 Nestucca: 9 Vernonia: 57 12/10 Nestucca: 35 Waldport: 22

by Chelsea Yarnell sports@orcoastnews.com

The Nestucca girls faced an extremely tough competitor Friday night. Vernonia High School is the number six 2A state ranked team and has gone undefeated in the pre-league season; they blew the Bobcats out of the water 57-9. While their first league game wasn’t a close contest, the Bobcat’s game against Waldport last week was one of vengeance. The Bobcat girls stole back the luck of the Irish in their rematch on Dec. 10. After losing 15-25 at home on Dec. 4, the Bobcats came back and beat them 35-22. Unlike their first game of the season, the girls were able to score more than a basket in the first quarter. “The girls did a great job coming out aggressive and confident, especially after having four days off due to the weather,” Head Coach Tim Foster said. “Monica Chatelain got us off on the right foot by knocking down a long two-pointer on our first possession of the game...” The Bobcats only led by two at the half, but really turned it up in the third and fourth quarters. “In the second half we used our full court press for the first time and were able to create some turnovers and get fast break opportunities,” Foster said. “We

outscored them 13-4 in the third quarter and did a good job controlling the ball the rest of the way to preserve the lead.” The girls continued to increase their lead, outscoring the Bobcats once again in the fourth quarter, 10-8, and secured their 35-22 win overall. Senior Marissa Dempsey led the Bobcats with 11 points. “Dempsey discovered her outside shot, as well as her inside touch...,” Foster said. “She did a great job going to the rim and knocked down jump shots when they left her open.” Monica Chatelain also scored significantly for the Bobcats with ten points for the evening. “[She] did her damage from the outside and by scrapping for rebounds and put backs. Her and Kycie Richwine led us on the press and kept constant pressure on Waldport’s ball handlers all game long.” In addition, freshman Morgan Kirkpatrick, the sole freshman on Nestucca’s team, was called into commission for the game because regular post player Jackie Wilkinson was sick. Foster said, “She did a great job stepping into the starting line-up.” The girls travel to Taft Wednesday night and then play Neah-Kah-Nie at home this Friday at 6 p.m. Nestucca: 9 3 13 10 -35 Waldport: 4 6 4 8 -22 Nestucca scoring- Marissa Dempsey 11, Monica Chatelain 10, Kycie Richwine 7, Sunny McCall 3, Perla Gracia 2, Thelma Chavarin 2.

12/11 NKN:75 Jewell: 77 12/13 NKN: 42 Faith Bible: 58

by Chelsea Yarnell sports@orcoastnews.com

Two and a half minutes into the first quarter Friday night, NKN Head Coach Steve Sherren subbed in a whole new team. The Pirate boys were struggling to score against Faith Bible, only managing to put four points on the board in the first and third quarters. At the half, the Pirates only trailed 18-24, but Faith Bible’s 20-point third quarter was the game clincher. NKN came back in the fourth quarter and outscored the Falcons 20-14, but it wasn’t a big enough comeback for the win. The Pirates lost 42-48. Max Halverson led the team with 23 points, followed by Traveion Morris with 16. Friday’s game was the second loss in a row for the Pirates after they played Jewell Dec. 11 and lost 75-77. “I think right now our biggest challenge as a team is to get better defensively,” Head Coach Steve Sherren said. “Against Jewell, we had plenty of opportunities to win the game, but had to many empty trips and didn’t make enough defensive stops.” Careless errors and poor shot selections late in the

game cost Neah-Kah-Nie the win against Jewell Sherren said. “I hope that as a team we use all of our nonleague games as learning opportunities and grow as a team from the experiences.” While a close loss puts a damper on the game, Sherren is pleased with the performance of some of his rookie players. “The biggest surprise so far this season is how well the sophomore group has played. They were a question mark coming into the season as only one of them had varsity experience last year. As a whole I believe they are playing well and each game [they] have gotten better as they adjust to playing varsity basketball.” The game against Jewell is the second close scoring game for the Pirates this season. The Pirates won 5755 to Warrenton on Dec. 7. “Being in two close games will definitely help us in the future. I think anytime that you get a win it helps build confidence in what your doing as a team and keeps players motivated. If that translates into momentum for tonight’s game, I’m not sure. It will be a good test for us in our first league game.” The boys travel to Nestucca on Friday to play the Bobcats at 7:30 p.m.

Cheesemakers place second at Hank Schmidlin Invite by Chelsea Yarnell sports@orcoastnews.com

Unfortunately Tillamook’s snowy weather canceled many sporting events two weeks ago, including the Tillamook Smoker Wrestling Invitational on Dec. 6. So, the Cheesemakers’ first competition wasn’t until last week at the Hank Schmidlin Invite at Banks High School. As a whole team, Tillamook went 3-1, falling only to Rainier High School, and placed second overall. “This early in the season I thought we wrestled OK,” Head Coach Lonnie Eggert said. “Having our home tournament can- The celled hurt us. We can usually see what we ing s need to work on and return to the practice be s room and hone those skills.” While the Cheesemakers are still sharpening their skills, several wrestlers went undefeated at the tournament including Justin Coon, Logan Weeks, Christian Mata, Raphael Gomez, and Dylan Jackman. “We are still hoping to fill some of our lower weight classes. If we can do that it will take some pressure off the rest of the line up,” Eggert said. “The rest of the team also turned in strong performances to help us take second.” Tillamook: 37 Newport: 36 Tillamook: 31 Rainier: 39 Tillamook: 58 Yamhill-Carlton: 24 Tillamook: 45 Banks: 24

Trekking Tillamook: South Neah-Kah-Nie Mountain

The view from the top of Neah-Kah-Nie Mountain looking south over Manzanita. The Nehalem Bay can also be seen on the upper left-hand side.

by Chelsea Yarnell sports@orcoastnews.com

After the snowfall in Tillamook County this past weekend, my husband Aaron and I sought out some snowy trails, and found them on the South Neah-Kah-Nie Mountain Trailhead. Traveling on Highway 101, the gravel road leading to the trailhead is between mileposts 41 and 42 on the east side, about 30 miles north of Tillamook. Follow the gravel road up to the parking area; a trailhead sign marks the beginning of the trail. There is no fee to park or hike. The South trail starts with a quick incline, rising almost 700 feet in the first mile. It zigzags its way up the side of the mountain through a dense forest. For our hike, the normally dirt path, was lightly covered in a layer of snow, giving us the feeling of being up in the snowy mountains. After about a mile, the trail straightens out and the incline lessens, for there’s only 200 feet over the next half mile to climb in order to get to the top. Also at

the end of the switchbacks, a utility road, which leads to a radio facility, crosses the hikers path. Continue straight on the footpath. Past a bench on the lefthand side of the trail, there’s a single switchback before reaching the access to the summit. Lacking a sign indicating that you’ve made it to the final destination, it’s very unclear how hikers are suppose to access the summit. But, many people before us carved out various paths and we chose one. The rugged rocks leading to the summit forces hikers to crotch and somewhat bearcrawl to the top. But, the hike turned climb makes the view feel well earned. At 1,600 feet above sea level, on a clear day, the view from the summit is quite spectacular. The clearing at the top of the mountain looks south. The towns of Manzanita, Wheeler, and Nehalem can all be seen, along with a vast view of the Nehalem Bay. The cloudless day also gave us limitless views of the coast; we could see almost 50 miles down the coast to Cape Lookout.

From the summit, there is also another trail, the North Neah-Kah-Nie Mountain Trail (also known as the Oregon Coast Trail), which starts further north off of Highway 101. When paired with the South trail and Highway 101, the hike can become a five and a half mile hiking loop. We opted for a simple out and back to the summit. From the South trailhead, it’s about a mile and a half to the top, 3 miles round trip. The hike is a quick one, taking about an hour round trip. Because of the drastic incline at the beginning, we rate the hike as slightly difficult. On Jan. 1 at 10 a.m., the Nehalem Bay Management Unit will be leading a hike on the South Trail to kick off the New Year.

Lady Mooks play best game of the season 12/13 Tillamook: 28 Central: 63

by Chelsea Yarnell sports@orcoastnews.com

While the score added another loss to the Lady Mooks’ season record, Head Coach Danielle Weber believes the girls had their best game of the season against Central on Friday night. “The game was very physical and I was really proud of my girls fighting until the very end,” Weber said. “Central hit some deep 3’s to really spread that score, so that didn’t help.” The Panthers pulled off the win 63-28. “I saw lots of improvement from my girls this game, so I’m hopeful that we are continuing to move forward despite these loses,” Weber said. The Lady Mooks also played on Dec. 10, when they traveled to Molalla and lost 33-57. Each game has a little piece of improvement and Weber saw positive development in the girls’ free throw shooting in that game. “That had actually kept us in the ball game for the first half. [We] just need to keep focusing and taking care of the basketball. That was really the difference in the ball game. Other than that we were pretty evenly matched.” For the second game in a row, freshman Jordan Zweifel led the Cheesemakers with nine points and eight rebounds in the game

TILL

against Molalla. “She had many other great opportunities to score but just couldn’t capitalize. That will come as the season goes on,” Weber said. Weber plans to have the team focus on shooting, particularly in close proximity to the basket. “We can execute our plays just fine, but right now [we’re] having a problem finishing,” Weber said. “Other than that, we will continue to work on the same things we work on everyday. We definitely have some tough weeks coming up, but as long as we keep moving forward and keep learning our wins will come.” The Lady Mooks are 0-3 overall and host La Salle Prep at home this Friday at 7 p.m.

TBCC Students Interview L.A. Times Book Critic Tillamook Bay Community College students enrolled in ENG 104: Introduction to Fiction this fall had a unique opportunity to interview L.A. Times book critic, David L. Ulin, and publish the conversation in a national literary journal. TBCC instructor, Sydney Elliott, is the senior editor of the journal, Soundings, this year and had the opportunity to interview Ulin, who recently won the Stanley Lindberg Editor’s award at the Rainier Writers Workshop, where Elliott is earning her MFA in writing. Ulin recently wrote a book called, The Lost Art of Reading: Why Books Matter in a Distracted Time, and Elliott saw an angle. “What a great opportunity it would be for my students to have a conversation with someone like David about why reading matters.” Students read excerpts from Ulin’s book, watched interviews, and developed their own questions about the act of reading and how to make time to engage with a book. Elliott conducted the interview over the phone and transcribed the recording. “David enjoyed sharing his thoughts, and students not only were able to use the interview as a touchstone for class discussions, they got a glimpse into the wider world of

hursday was a busy night with our oldest son’s birthday and our daughter’s first winter concert at the Nehalem Elementary School. Everything went great, but we did realize we needed to get to the school earlier. I don’t believe I have ever seen such a turnout; it was amazing to see so many people there. As always,Mr. Simpson outdid himself. The children from Kindergarten to fifth grade entertained the crowd with “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” (16th century English carol) performed by Mrs. Thysell’s kindergarten class, then “Jingle Bell Rock” (B. Helms) done by Mrs. Felley’s kindergarten class, and “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow” (V.

Grieg) and an untitled song written by Alek Tonjes himself, which both were amazing. Thank you to all of the students of the Nehalem Elementary and to Mr. Simpson for a wonderful evening – simply a pleasure as always. A reminder about the Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church – they are having a Christmas Vacation Bible School this year, but with the school winter break landing two days before Christmas they are only

able to make this a one day event. The Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church will be having a fun-filled and inspirational one-day VBS on Saturday, Dec. 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Children age 4 up to the fifth grade are invited. They will have Christmas crafts, carols, games and stories. A nutritious lunch will also be served. Then at 1:30 parents and siblings are invited to join their VBS child(ren) to celebrate Jesus’ birthday with cake and carols. This event is free for children age 4 through fifth grade. You can pick up registration forms at the church on 10th and A Street in Nehalem, between Tuesday and Friday from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. or at the North County Recreation District (NCRD) office, Monday through Friday 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Remember, please have registration returned by December 16th; any questions you may contact Joanne at 503-355-2573. Happy Birthday this week to Miles Geiger of Vancouver, Wash., Lori Noregaard of Nehalem, Jacquie Bradley Jacob of Tillamook, George Booth of Nehalem and Tabitha Meyer of Wheeler.

this Friday, Dec. 20, from 10 a.m. till noon at the God’s Lighthouse church, 8th and Garibaldi Avenue (across from the Food Basket). Their December schedule was moved up a week so they could be open the Friday before Christmas. You’ve probably seen (it’s hard to miss) the gigantic crane from Bergerson Construction, that’s been busily dismantling the Port of Garibaldi’s old Commercial Avenue wharf. The old creosoted pilings look puny next to the crane – but pulling the old pilings out of the bay isn’t why they needed such a big crane. Have you seen the new pilings? They’re over 100 feet long – steel pipe that’ll be filled with concrete. The big crane will be setting those once the old pilings are all removed. The best point to watch the construction activity is at the foot of Jerry Creasy Way. Quite a few folks have been down there watching and taking photos. The activity on the wharf is going to be pretty fast and furious, because the contractor’s “in-water work period” only lasts until Feb. 15. Before that deadline, all the old piling and decking has

to be removed, and the new piling – and enough decking so they can work on the wharf out of the water – has to be in place. It’s a pretty short span of time to get a lot of work done in. And the start of work got delayed a few weeks because the Federal government was shut down most of October, and the Economic Development Administration, which is providing the bulk of the money for the project, wasn’t in business and able to approve documents. Lastly, congratulations to the Bay City Arts Center. The Arts Center was awarded a $2,000 grant from the Tillamook County Cultural Coalition to revive the “Da Vinci Project,” a hands-on design class for elementary school kids. The kids design inventions, and create blueprints for them, and then – with the help of some adults where power tools are involved – build small-scale (and not necessarily working) prototypes. Just like Leonardo Da Vinci did. I’ve been one of the adult “gofers” in past Da Vinci Projects, and some of the kids’ inventions have been fantastic. Nice to see the program back.

Between Mike, the E.M.T.’s and Nestucca Fire, we were home safely within a couple hours of the accident, but the car was totaled.” I’m reminded of the winter driving tips Gordon McGraw, Tillamook County’s emergency preparedness guru, shared at this time last year: • Keep your lights and windshield clean and drive with your headlights on. • Decrease your speed and leave yourself plenty of room to stop. You should allow at least three times more space than usual between you and the car in front of you. • Use low gears to keep traction, especially on hills, and brake gently to avoid skidding. • Don’t use cruise control or overdrive on icy roads. * Be especially careful on bridges, overpasses and on less traveled roads, which freeze first. • Don’t pass snow plows or sanding trucks. The road in front of them is likely worse than the road behind. • Don’t assume your vehicle can handle the conditions. Even four-wheel and front-wheel drive vehicles can encounter trouble on winter roads. If you’re looking for a local outing to entertain

out-of-town holiday guests, consider whale watching. Volunteers will staff “Whale Watching Spoken Here” sites Dec. 26-31 at four Tillamook County sites: Cape Kiwanda in Pacific City, Cape Lookout near Sand Lake, Cape Meares in Central Tillamook County, and at the Neah Kah Nie Mountain Historic Marker in North Tillamook County.

It’s been too cold to go up in the attic to get the larger imitation tree to decorate. The small one will have to do for this year. It has lights and tiny Santa decorations, little bells and a few other decorations. It’s cute and with a few wrapped little gifts for the grand kids it will be an easy Christmas to put together with so little time left. Gift cards this year for the grown ups. I had no time for shopping with the cold weather. Every day I thought it would warm up here so close to the ocean but it was mighty cold. I just stayed indoors and now

am working on Christmas cards and letters. They may be a little late if I go over the mountain this coming week. I’ll try to get them in the mail by the 20th. Seems that there are two Christmas parties on the same Saturday and I have to choose one or the other. The same happened last year. Well, there is a New Year’s Eve party planned for Cape Meares people on the Eve of New Year’s. An auction is planned. I hope to be there. It isn’t far from my house to the Cape Meares Community Center. It’s well lit from here to there. Wednesday, Jan. 8 is our Nea-Rock Garden Club “After Christmas” party at Betty and Richard Rolston’s house. Meet at the PUD parking lot at 11 a.m. We will leave the parking lot between 11:15 and 11:30 a.m. A potluck is planned for noon and a gift exchange will follow. Bring a gift for $8 or less or a recycled gift. Hope to see you there!

No action expected soon on farm bill, flood insurance By Joe Wrabek

jwrabek@countrymedia.net

Two pieces of federal legislation important to Tillamook County – a farm bill, and a bill delaying increases in homeowners’ flood insurance premiums – are unlikely to pass before Congress adjourns for the year. The U.S. House of Representatives is in session only until Dec. 13. The Senate recesses a week later. They won’t return until after Jan. 1. Here’s where we are to date: • The so-called “farm bill” deals with a variety of federal programs run by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, from agricultural price supports to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to the Rural Utilities Service (which finances water and sewer systems). Some 80 percent of the expenses in the farm bill are in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps. Congress has wrestled with a farm bill for the past six months. A Senate measure passed June 10; a House version was narrowly defeated June 20, reportedly because of arguments over the size of cuts to the SNAP program. The House version subsequently was broken into two pieces: a food-stamp bill and an everythingbut-food-stamps bill. Both passed the House on partyline votes. A conference committee of senators and congressmen – mostly from the Senate and House agriculture committees – has been attempting to reconcile the two different versions since Oct. 30, without much success. The farm bill “will be decided by the top four people,” Rep. Kurt Schrader told the Headlight Herald on Dec. 4. Those are the two chairmen and the two ranking minority members

of the House and Senate ag committees: Sens. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Thad Cochran (R-Miss.), and Reps. Frank Lucas (ROkla.) and Collin Peterson (D-Minn.). Schrader, who represents Tillamook County in Congress, is a member of the House Agriculture Committee and also sits on the conference committee. “The big issues have narrowed some,” Schrader told the Headlight Herald. He said provisions related to specialty crops and a forestry initiative, important to Schrader’s district, have been agreed to. A dairy provision has not. The Dairy Security Act, which would replace milk price supports with a version of crop insurance, continues to be opposed by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). “Collin Peterson, Jim Costa of California and I are leading the charge” to ensure the Dairy Security Act’s provisions are in the farm bill, Schrader said. “We won’t support a bill that doesn’t.” But the biggest difference between the House and Senate farm bills remains the amount to be cut from SNAP. The Democraticcontrolled Senate voted to cut $4 billion from SNAP over 10 years; the Republican-dominated House, $39 billion. The biggest incentive for passage of a farm bill is the spectre of reverting to “permanent legislation” that was enacted back in 1938 and 1949. (Farm bills since then have been no more than short-term amendments to that permanent legislation, which remains in effect.) Absent a new farm bill, the permanent legislation requires a level of price supports for milk that reportedly would cause the retail price of milk double – or worse. (There’s another difference – not often mentioned – between the House and Senate farm bills. The House farm bill would

repeal the old permanent legislation and itself become the new permanent legislation. The Senate bill keeps the old permanent legislation in place.) “Now, many legislators are saying [prices] won’t necessarily double Jan. 1,” said Grace Boatwright, legislative director of the National Grange, based in Washington, D.C. That retail price hike would come a little later, she said – presumably giving Congress time to do something after the first of the year. “It’s pretty likely they’ll pass farm legislation as part of a larger budget deal,” Boatwright said. “They can do that up until midnight Jan. 14.” That farm-bill “rider” could take any form, Boatwright said. “I hope it’s a brand-new farm bill” instead of a continuation of the provisions from five years ago, she said. But, “I bet they give it a twoyear extension,” she said, because “2014 is an election year.” • Legislation to delay flood insurance premium hikes and to mandate an “affordability study” by the Federal Emergency Management Agency was introduced, with much fanfare, Oct. 29. Yet little has happened since. “It’s been assigned to committees,” said Schrader, and those committees have yet to hold a hearing. The flood insurance bills have an impressive list of co-sponsors – 15 senators and 95 congressmen, including Schrader and Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley. But they face opposition from conservative groups bent on ending subsidies and from environmental groups wanting to halt construction in the flood zones. “We have a budget deadline of Dec. 13,” Schrader said. (That’s the day the House goes home for Christmas.) “If that [budget deal] passes, we’ll try to attach the flood insurance piece.”

May you find comfort in knowing your community surrounds you in warm thoughts at this time. The December Artist of the Month at Bay City Arts Center is Brittany Gerken. Her works will be on display through the month of December. The next monthly Pancake Breakfast will be held Sunday, Dec. 15. That’s a real deal at only $5 for all you can eat.

I even saw a Lions barrel in the bank. It doesn’t matter to whom you donate, just be sure to give. In keeping with the true spirit of Christmas, the Rockaway Beach Community Church will have their traditional celebration Dec. 22 at 9 a.m. which includes the annual Christmas children’s play followed by a short program and refreshments. Their annual candle lighting service will be held Tuesday, Dec. 24 at 7 p.m. Steve and Jackie Hoefler and the entire church community welcome all to join them for worship and Christmas music. Just feet from the ocean, St. Mary’s by the Sea Catholic Church, has a Christmas Eve Mass at 5:30 p.m. and Christmas Morning Mass at 9 .am. Fr. Larry Gooley’s words will easily put the Christmas observance into perspective. You have two wonderful choices to begin your “Holyday” celebration. For those of you within the city limits, keep in mind that after Christmas the Public Works Department will be picking up your trees for disposal. Call the city hall at 355-2291 to get on their list. They will be picking up the week of Jan. 6. As I write this column with the arctic blast chilling my bones, I want to thank you for the kind words I have had this year that has warmed my heart. I really enjoy writing for you and please don’t hesitate to let me know what’s going on in your life. “The Christmas lights all around town are surely candy for your eyes.

Come join in this festive time and if you like you may bring up to a $10 gift to exchange. Remember I told you about grants coming up for non-profit groups. Well, thanks to The Tillamook County Cultural Coalition, awards were given out in the total amount of $7,375. The Community Arts Project was awarded $2,000 to assist in the Art Literacy Program for Garibaldi Grade School and Nestucca Valley Elementary School children. Bay City Arts Center received $2,000 to fund The DaVinci project, an art and design project for 5th graders at East Elementary School. Grant awards are made possible with funds from The Oregon Cultural Trust. The Tillamook County Cultural Coalition is one of 45 county and tribal coalitions made up of a volunteer board which funds local arts education, history, public art and other cultural projects that meet the TCCC’s established criteria. And thanks to Benny and the Bay City Rockers for playing their Christmas performance last week for donations for a county employee, Blasé Ihnat, his wife Wendy and 5-year-old daughter Lily who recently lost everything except the clothes they were wearing when their house burned down. Thanks to all of you for giving in the true meaning of Christmas. Stay warm and I will see you around town.

ven though we’re tucked away in the upper left-hand corner of the map and have gone as far west as we can without getting our feet wet, we’re still connected to the rest of the world through the screens we stare at, and I’ll tell you I’m worried about the poor people in the news. Being a local celebrity, I understand the pressure for the requests to make an appearance, for my autograph, the paparazzi, who, after seeing my photo in the Headlight-Herald every week, figure that’s enough. I’m worried that Miley Cyrus’ family gatherings might get a little tense when she starts giving her father Billy Ray career advice after he makes too many trips to the punchbowl and breaks into another rendition of Achy Breaky Heart when she points out one hit isn’t enough to sustain a career and he needs to twerk. I’m worried the relationship between Mrs. Gaga and Lady will be strained because Mrs. Gaga will act like any mom and keep reminding Lady who she

is which she needs to do because I have no idea who her daughter is from one performance to the next unless I see the credits on the screen. I’m worried about the motivation of the lower level Al Qaeda members. I mean, what with drones taking out the leaders, who wants to get promoted? Their spelling, too. Who uses a Q without a U? I’m afraid Gov. Chris Christie is using Rush Limbaugh as a weight loss consultant. I’m afraid we underestimate the effectiveness of Vice President Joe Biden who was sent to calm things down with China who will agree to practically anything if Joe will just quit talking and go home.

Tillamook County’s Miami-Foley, Long Prairie, Latimer and Brooten roads are scheduled for repaving between the summer of 2014 and spring of 2015. County Public Works director Liane Welch said the paving will encompass 2.2 miles of Brooten Road, 2 miles of Miami-Foley, 1.6 miles of Latimer Road and 1.1 miles of Long Prairie Road. A number of shorter sections of county roads were repaved in 2013, Welch said. The 1.6 miles of Latimer Road and 1 mile of Brooten Road will get “full-depth reclamation,” she said. The existing pavement will be ground up and mixed with cement to create a new base for the new pavement. Welch said that costs about twice

parts, won’t be able to tell his daughters apart and will never figure out what it is they do. I’m afraid Justin Bieber will lose his fans when his voice changes, George Clooney will end a perfect life by getting married, Mike Tyson will try to act, sing, or do anything, Robert De Niro will make another comedy, Barbra Streisand will direct another movie, Kevin Costner or Sandra Bullock will act in another movie and Charlize Theron won’t. I’m afraid Oprah will lose the love of her fans by running for office. I’m afraid with the example of Nelson Mandela to inspire him, President Obama will have his heart broken by attempting a greater feat than ending apartheid in South Africa, working with the United States Congress. And locally, I’m worried incisive political analyst and respected journalist for the Headlight Herald, Joe Wrabek, will give in to a groundswell of support demanding he run for something. He will then find out, like I did, what a cruel mistress fame can be.

as much as the “pre-level and overlay” that will be applied to the other segments. In addition, culverts will be replaced on all four of the road segments. Total cost will be $1.79 million, which comes from road bond funds approved by the county’s voters last year. The four roads were chosen because they’re “farm-to-market, economic development and emergency routes,” Welch said. As with 2013’s projects, the money for repairs is being allocated about equally among north, central and south Tillamook County, she said. Latimer and Long Prairie roads are on the list because of the impending redesign and construction of the U.S. Highway 101-Oregon Highway 6 intersection in Tillamook by the Oregon Department of Transportation.

Latimer and Long Prairie will see heavier traffic when the highway construction starts in 2017, Welch said. “Most traffic will avoid downtown [Tillamook] when that construction happens,” she said. According to ODOT, construction on the Tillamook intersection is scheduled to begin in 2015. Local roads advisory committee member Gus Myer urged also fixing Olson Road in Tillamook between Third Street and Highway 6. He said that stretch has been seeing heavy traffic since the Wilson River Loop intersection was redesigned earlier this year. If the work Latimer and Long Prairie roads “come in under budget, we can use the extra money on Olson Road,” Welch agreed. “It would complete that route and make a nice loop road.”

I’m concerned about The Rolling Stones and The Pope. Even though the Pope has six years on Mick and he doesn’t play guitar like Mick doesn’t and he doesn’t have any recordings in the top 100, I’m told he’s a rock star and Mick doesn’t need the competition and I don’t want the Pope to forget what his real job is. I’m worried about Toronto Mayor Ron Ford. Crack is a gateway drug to what, Drano? I’m worried what with a third of young people saying they get their news from Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show, Jon will get confused trying to tell the difference between his show and the real news. I’m apprehensive that despite being one of the most effective Secretaries of State, able to put up with Bill for all these years, and being convinced to run for President of the United States, Hillary will overlook the fact that women just don’t like her. I’m worried that Bruce Jenner, father of two or more interchangeable daughters, Kardashians, famous for large body
