Transmission line appeal set for Dec. 5 in Salem By Joe Wrabek

A hearing by Oregon’s Land Use Board of Appeals on the City of Tillamook’s denial of a Tillamook PUD transmission line to Oceanside is set for Dec. 5 in Salem. The PUD appeal will be the second of two oral arguments LUBA’s three-member board will hear that day. LUBA, a sort of specialized land-use court created in 1979, is designed to speed up, simplify and ONLINE standardDo you ize any support the transmission appeals of local line? Take land-use our online decisions. poll at Prior to tillamook the board’s headlight creation, the appeals of local governments’ land-use decisions went to the state’s circuit courts. So LUBA is where one goes to appeal the final decision of a local governing body involving a land-use matter. And that’s what happening in Tillamook. The city’s zoning ordinance requires the PUD to get conditionaluse approval for its proposed transmission line to Oceanside because it would impact private land. The Tillamook Planning Commission approved Tillamook PUD’s request Jan. 3, but that decision was appealed Jan. 17 by Don Aufdermauer and Dennis Johnson, two of the landowners along the proposed PUD route. The Tillamook City Council subsequently overruled the Planning Commission’s decision following a hearing March 5. The City Council’s deci-

A recent report released by the Oregon Employment Department indicates that Tillamook County’s jobs picture continues to improve. Six years ago, an unemployment rate of 6.3 percent would have been considered a crisis. But after suffering rates as high 9.5 percent in 2009, Tillamook County’s unemployment picture today seems positively bright. For that matter, in October the county’s 6.3 percent did better than the statewide unemployment average of 7.1 percent. “The unemployment rate has continued to fall compared to last year,” said Shawna Sykes, a workforce analyst with the Oregon Employment Depart-

HOUSING MARKET How’s the housing market doing? See page A9 ment’s research division. Why? A combination of factors, Sykes said: For one, there’s been an increase in the number of employed local residents, from an estimated 11,572 in October 2012 to 11,673 this October. For another, we’ve seen a decrease in the number of residents actually in the labor force, from an estimated 12,551 last October to 12,453 this October. Statistically, that helps lower the unemployment rate. To decrease the unemployment rate, “you either have to increase the percentage of those who are employed or de-

crease the number of people in the labor force,” said Sykes. “Tillamook County’s change has been a result of both.” The October rates are the most recent data available, she said. Due to the federal government’s shutdown, data for November have yet to be released. Tillamook County’s October unemployment rate of 6.2 percent was down nicely from the 7.8 percent recorded last year. Yet the pre-recession rate in October 2007 was 4.4 percent – so there’s still a long row to hoe, Sykes said. Of Oregon’s three northwestern counties (Clatsop, Tillamook and Columbia), Tillamook saw the greatest improvement over last October’s numbers. In fact, Tillamook County was among the state’s top 10 in unemployment rates. The state average is down, too, from

8 percent last year – a five-year low. The improved employment in Oregon’s coastal counties is good news for the entire state, said Mark McMullen, an economist with the state Office of Economic Analysis. The first years of recovery following the recession that began in 2008 were concentrated primarily in metropolitan areas such as Portland and Salem, said McMullen. “Now, that recovery is finally spreading out to the rural areas – and to the Oregon coast, in particular – to areas that were the epicenter of the housing downturn.” By category, the biggest increase in jobs in October statewide was recorded in the government sector, followed by leisure and hospitality. Yet of the three

Local Rotary Club lights a spark Volunteers travel to Guatemala to install stoves By Sayde Moser

Victor, 81, lives by himself in a one-room shack. A single light bulb hangs from the ceiling, barely illuminating his bed and table. Next to the table was a little grill he used for cooking. It took a group of volunteers from Tillamook just a matter of hours to install a new cook stove for Victor, then provide him with some food and be on their way. Over the next eight days, the volunteers installed 19 similar stoves for other Guatemalan families. The mission was spearheaded by Kris Lachenmeier, who heads up Tillamook’s Rotary Club. Serving her second term as president, Lachenmeier decided it was time for the 25-year-old club to help out on a global stage. “We’ve always given money internationally,” Lachenmeier said, “but we’ve never gone anywhere before… This club has mainly been focused on doing things here locally in Tillamook.” This summer, a representative of Mayan Families came to talk to the club. Mayan Families is a small nonprofit organization operating in the Highlands of Guatemala, according to its website. Based in Panajachel, it operates a variety of programs to support and empower the Maya people of Lake Atitlan and surrounding areas. “Our club was really interested in their elderly feeding program,” Lachenmeier said. So she went to the Mayan

Tillamook Rotary Club president Kris Lachenmeier and a group of Tillamook area volunteers recently traveled to the Lake Atitlan region of Guatemala, above, to help install much needed stoves for 20 families there. A portion of the money that financed the trip was raised in Tillamook through the club’s annual fundraising auction. Lachenmeier, pictured below at far right with the group of volunteers, was the only Rotarian on the trip. Families website to generate ideas of how the club could help. There, she learned of the need for family stoves. “They just cook on open flames inside these shacks,” she said, “so there are a lot of respiratory issues, like asthma, and children getting badly burnt.” The Tillamook Rotary region was able to raise $1,800 for new stoves and Rotary district officials matched that

Hotly debated forestlands proposal could boost timber harvest By Joe Wrabek

Amid much fanfare, U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) recently unveiled a proposal to change the management of Oregon and California Railroad lands currently owned by the federal government. The so-called “O&C lands” are a checkerboard of 640-acre parcels in 18 western Oregon counties, the remains of a big 1860s land grant for building a railroad from Portland to California. The U.S. government repossessed the land in the early 20th century after a land-fraud scandal involving the Southern Pacific Railroad. Since 1937, the O&C lands have been managed by the federal Bureau of Land Management. The practice of generating revenue from timber sales on those lands to in turn pay selected Oregon counties for not receiving property taxes from the timber logged pretty much was halted in the 1990s. Wyden’s proposal, which is similar to legislation passed in

File photo

September by the U.S. House of Representatives, deals only with the O&C lands, not the bigger acreage owned and operated by the U.S. Forest Service. (In Tillamook County,

where the federal government owns 17 percent of the land, the O&C lands and the national forest lands are about equal in extent. That’s not true elsewhere in Oregon.)

Wyden chairs the Senate’s Energy and Natural Resources Committee, which has control over any public lands legislation. His proposal – there’s been no bill introduced yet – is designed to be an alternative to the House bill, which President Barak Obama has threatened to veto if it passes the U.S. Senate. “I think Wyden needs to be commended for trying,” said Tillamook County Commissioner Tim Josi, who serves on the governing board of the Association of O&C Counties. But Josi predicted it would be “very difficult” to get any such legislation passed. Like the House legislation, Wyden proposes to set aside roughly one-half of the 2.1 million acres of O&C lands for “conservation,” prohibiting logging, and manage the remaining half for forestry. Beyond that, the Wyden proposal is notably different. The Housepassed bill would put the “forestry emphasis area” of the O&C lands in a trust managed by the State of Or-

STOVES: money. Before long, Lachenmeier and several other volunteers were headed for Panajachel. Three volcanoes surround Lake Atitlan, home to 26 different Indian tribes. It’s a popular area for Rotary International and other service groups, Lachenmeier said, in part because of a 36-yearlong civil war that ended in 1996. In that war, 200,000 people were displaced or missing. “They’re still just recovering as a country,” Lachenmeier said. “The Mayans are very poor and the government of Guatemala doesn’t really care for them.” On one side of the lake, a massive mudslide in 2005 killed 1,400 people and displaced the rest. The government supplied them with tents to live in for the first few years, before building cinderblock homes. Lachenmeier said the last of the 20 stoves her group installed went to a single mother of two young children. The mother’s parents became missing during the war and she was raised by her aunt. “Her aunt kept thanking us over and over again,” Lachenmeier recalled, “because they weren’t on the list to receive a stove but for whatever reason, they got on the list. “It was really incredible to come full circle like that,” she said. “First, it was Victor, who lived all by himself. And then this single mom, with her two young kids.” Lachenmeier predicts her club will see members make a return trip. “There’s a lot of energy in our club right

Continued from Page A1 now,” she said. “And there’s a lot of community spirit in Tillamook.” This year’s Rotary auction raised $6,000 and was attended by more guests than ever before, Lachenmeier said. “There were a lot of people there who’re interested in what we’re doing and excited about it, not only locally but internationally as well. “We can’t help everyone, but we made a difference in those 20 families’ lives. So it’s a start.”

After receiving $40 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for “alternate projects” following the region’s debilitating 2007 winter storm, the Port of Tillamook Bay now has completed about 75 percent of those projects. And exceeded its budget by $4.2 million. Eric Eckfield recently presented the port’s board of commissioners with a series of cuts intended to cure the overage in the FEMA projects’ budget. Eckfield is the owner’s representative for the FEMA projects. Topping the list of cuts was $1.5 million originally proposed to spend on Hangar B for a new coat on the building’s rusty metal roof. That project never passed FEMA’s “sniff test,” Eckfield said. “We were holding it as a placeholder.” Eckfield also recommended not renovating Building 12, located near the port’s new warehouse business park. “It’s a relatively low-use building that’s seen better days,” he told the port commissioners. “It may not be viable to retain.” Servicemaster is the only business tenant, he noted. Eckfield additionally recommended deleting $1.19 million in proposed equipment purchases. And another $1.6 million is being saved on current projects, he said. The commissioners voted unanimously to accept Eckfield’s recommendations. In other business, Eckfield also told the commissioners why methane gas production on the port’s manure-toelectricity digester dropped off recently. One reason, he said, was the seasonal transition from the area’s dairy cattle summer feed, which is grass, to winter feed, which is corn silage. “It brings a load of heavy sugars,” Eckfield said, “which has an impact on the bugs creating the methane.” At the same time, “We got some contaminated manure that pushed the digester over the edge,” he said. “We had one cell that basically quit.” The methane-producing

bugs subsequently died, said Eckfield. “We do not know where [the contaminated manure] came from,” Eckfield told the commissioners. There’s no monitoring of what’s in the manure that’s delivered to the port, he pointed out. “Some kind of oversight would be helpful.” The digester now is back in operation, said Eckfield, but “we’re going slow, to allow the bug base to rebuild.” If the digester had shut down after Jan. 1, 2014 – when the Port of Tillamook Bay’s contract to provide electricity to Portland General Electric kicks in – there would have been financial penalties, said port chairman Jim Young. So come January, he said, avoiding a shutdown will be critical. Meantime, the Port of Tillamook Bay also approved a lease with American Blimp, “another tenant for our business park,” said port manager Michele Bradley. The firm won’t be making blimps there, she said; “It’s strictly for warehousing.” The port now has leased 87,000 square feet of commercial space, said Bradley. “If you include NearSpace, we are 44 percent full on our FEMA-constructed buildings,” she said.

It might be unpleasant, but a check up is worth it By Ed Ketzel

Colonoscopy survivor

And so it was time. My doctor said the words: you need to have a colonoscopy. I was 57 at the time. Sure, I had a few issues, but a camera going where a camera really shouldn’t go? West of the sun? East of the moon? Not my idea of a fun thing. I was in, I thought, fair health. Trouble was I had just spend three days in the hospital recovering from a blockage and the doctor thought it was best to find out what was going on. Stubbornly, I agreed, and made the appointment. Little did I know what was to come. I arrived at the clinic for what I’ll call an “advisory appointment.” This is when the doctor will explain exactly what the procedure is and what you will need to do to get ready for it. You will be given a list of instructions dealing with what you can and cannot have before the procedure, and what you will be taking to help cleanse your colon. A wonderful thing called a “bowel prep.” Meaning nothing in the bowel. Nothing. I got my prescription for a couple of tiny pills filled, bought the other items on the list and went home. They say you should spend the day relaxing at home. Yeah, relaxing. You get to eat all the popsicles you want, and broth, and clear soda. Get the idea? Stay at home and relax. I do hope you like the color your bathroom is painted, because you are going to be spending a great deal of time in there. Oh the things I called my doctor that night. The plans I made for his demise. Chains and an engine

block, and the bottom of the bay, and, and, and, uh.. Sorry. The morning of my procedure I was ready to get it over with. Wearing light, easy to remove clothes I went through the check in and got my wrist band so everyone knew who I was. Very important. Do not want any mistakes at this point. Throughout it all I was continually asked my name, and what procedure I was there for. Comforting to me to have that level of caution used. After shucking my clothes and dressing in one of those backless gowns, I got to lay down and get hooked up to everything. Blood pressure, oxygen content and so on. They started an IV for fluids, and the doctor came in for a final work. Being me, I asked if he was awakened around 2 a.m. by a screaming voice. Namely mine. He assured me he was not, and asked if I had any questions or concerns. No. I just wanted to get it done. An assistant came over then, and after injecting something into my IV, started talking to me and I woke up. I have no memory of going out, or anything about the procedure at all. Easiest thing I have ever gone through. Poof. A nurse was spooning ice chips to me, telling me I did just fine. Wow. May everybody have it this easy. My doctor found seven polyps in my colon. Four were pre –cancerous. All were safely removed, and I was scheduled for another procedure in three years. Colon and rectal cancer kill thousands of people every year when a single examination would save their lives.

Readers’ Open Forum Why not bring Boeing to Tillamook? Many may have noticed that Boeing is requesting production bids for its 777 aircraft. I feel that the county commissioners along with the port be included among potential bidders. This may be a “stretch,” but at the very least, it will give the Port of Tillamook Bay some much needed publicity that they could not afford to purchase. If a Boeing dialogue develops many options may surface. Boeing has several divisions in addition to the commercial division who may express an interest. One that comes to mind is the division that produces drones. There is always the chance that a Boeing subcontractor might find the port an attractive production site. There is absolutely nothing to lose by trying this approach and many unexpected possibilities may result.

The JFK conspiracy I had watched a compelling documentary “JFK: smoking gun” (, Dish TV 299, Direct 238) and then read article about Dr. Cox’s not only setting up a medical team to do JFK’s autopsy at Bethesda but also being in the room (HH 11/20/2013). Dr. Cox reported staff at Parkland Hospital in Dallas “did not plan to do an autopsy,” “packaged him up” sending him on Air Force One. It would be very interesting to know who feed this data to Dr. Cox? After watching the “Smoking gun” the odds on favorite: the secret service.

Why I don’t want to be county commissioner By Joe Wrabek

Mild-mannered reporter

It’s not that I’d end up being criticized for appointing a new fair board that looked pretty much like the old fair board. Or that I’d be taking heat for people’s taxes going up, or bunches of people losing their flood insurance discounts. It’s because I’d be wanting to eliminate my job. One step lower than not having a job in the first place is making the one you’ve got disappear. See, Tillamook County’s got rather an inefficient setup as far as government goes. Three guys (or girls), elected every four years, collectively manage this multi-million dollar business. Unlike other governments, where the elected governing body is primary responsible for policy setting and oversight, our guys (or girls) actually run things – without any requirement that they have to know how. Now, ours are pretty good at what they do, and know what they’re doing; but there’s no requirement in the job description that they have to be. Yes, it’s a traditional setup – dating from the earliest days of Oregon government, in fact. The only thing that’s changed in the last 150 or so years is our county commissioners in Tillamook County aren’t also required to serve as judges, too. (There are still some counties in Oregon where the county commissioners are “the county court,” and the chairman is the “county judge.”) I never felt that “we’ve

always done it this way” was a good argument for continuing to do something, particularly when there was an alternative available. And there is an alternative. I lived with one when I lived in Hood River County. Hood River County voters adopted in 1964 what’s called a “home rule charter,” which allows the county government to function more like a city – including the ability to organize its government differently than the traditional three-commissionerselected-at-large model. Nine of Oregon’s 36 counties have home rule charters, which were allowed by a 1958 amendment to the state constitution. Hood River County was the only non-urban county to vote one in. Hood River County’s home rule charter replaced the traditional three-paidcommissioners-elected-atlarge with five unpaid volunteers. Four were elected by districts; the fifth – the chairman – was elected at large. To run things, they hired a county manager. All the other traditional county elected offices except for the sheriff – clerk, treasurer, assessor – became appointed ones. The new system had several advantages. Because the county commissioners were now unpaid volunteers, they had to have day jobs or businesses, which meant they had to meet in the evening (the public loved that). Electing commissioners by district meant that Hood River City,

review board (ARRB) findings, a ballistics expert who made his life’s work figuring what occurred together with interviews with uncalled witnesses coming to the conclusion: 1) Oswald shot one full metal jacket bullet through JFK’s throat, Conally’s chest, arm and leg coming out relatively pristine. 2) the bullet that killed JFK was a hollow point from behind left exploding a 130 mm hole in the upper right of his skull, a bullet that could not of come from Oswald’s ancient weapon AND inexplicably. 3) it was NOT a conspiracy but an accidental discharge by a secret service agent in the car trailing JFK’s vehicle! Now this latter point seems unlikely until one sees the cover up. It’s always the cover up that catches one up. Why did the secret service hustle the body onto

Air Force One over adamant objection of Dr. Rose at Parkland. This was a murder; Texas law required an autopsy before releasing Why did secret service seize all autopsy x-rays, slides, photographs and FBI notes promising to send copies to FBI – and destroy them instead? Why were the chief pathologist, Dr. James Hume, and x-ray tech Jerrol Custer, forced to sign a gag order under threat of court martial/ serious jail respectively? (only two who saw 30-40 tiny metal fragments in skull?) Why was Custer ordered, two days after the autopsy, to create an x-ray placing three larger metal pieces on the skull? (AARB deposition 10/28/1997) An intriguing documentary indeed. Mike Watkins Cape Meares

Response to marbled murrelet article By Tim Josi,

Tillamook County Commissioner

When reading the article written a couple of weeks ago in the Headlight Herald I noted some erroneous and misleading statements made by Brett Ferris, executive director of Cascadia Wildlands. But first let me reiterate what was correctly stated. The Marbled Murrelet is a multi-colored seabird the size of a robin. It flies up to 50 miles inland to nest in older trees. A lawsuit by Cascadia Wildlands alleges that timber sales offered by the State of Oregon on the Elliot State Forest in Coos and Douglas counties will violate the Endangered Species Act (ESA) due to direct and indirect take of Marbled Murrelet. The Murrelet is listed as threatened under the ESA. The lawsuit has effectively shut down more than 90 percent of this 93,000 acre forest. The Murrelet population uses habitat from mid-California up to the Aleutian Chain in Alaska where there are millions of the birds. The article stated that the population has been declining for years. Are they declining in Oregon and mid-California? We don’t know for certain. We do know there have been sighting throughout the Elliott State Forest. Mr. Ferris said “When the state began harvesting an older portion of the forest where the Marbled Murrelets were known to nest, Cascadia Wildlands blew the whistle.” In truth the State has always been

harvesting in principally older stands on the Elliott. They recently adopted a Take Avoidance Strategy to replace an expired Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) for the Murrelet. Mr. Ferris went on to say he was OK with plantation-management strategies such as thinning out some trees so others can grow bigger and stronger. In reality, the management strategy under the Habitat Conservation Plan consisted of small clearcuts within older stands. This management strategy is also the main forestry strategy under the Take Avoidance Plan. The only difference between the two plans is the HCP only planned for a harvest level of 25 million board feet per year while the Take Avoidance Strategy raised the harvest to 40 million board feet per year. The annual average growth on the Elliot is approximately 75 million board feet per year. Thinning plantations was never a significant part of the harvest on the Elliott. The plantations are too young for commercial thinning. Mr. Ferris then said the federal courts agreed with Cascadia Wildlands that the planned harvest of 40 million board feet would “take” too many Marbled Murrelet. As stated in the article “Take” is defined as actions that kill, harm or injure protect species. The court never found that Elliott Plan would cause “take” of Murrelets. Rather, in response to the





Continued from Page A4

lawsuit, the State decided to voluntarily pull back approximately 28 timber sales (two in the Tillamook State Forest) and change its Murrelet management policies in an effort to more conservatively set aside potential Murrelet habitat. Mr. Ferris then said: “Had they continued to harvest in a sustainable manner, they would have been allowed to do it for a lot longer,” How can this be a true statement? Harvesting 40 million board feet per year in a forest that grows an average of 75 million board feet per year utilizes only fifty three percent of the annual growth. Sightings are conducted by trained surveyors hired by the Oregon Department of Forestry when a timber sale is planned two years prior to the sale. But they don’t survey within a 50acre radius, as stated in the article, to look for Marbled Murrelets. They survey all potential Murrelet habitat within ¼ mile of the boundary of the timber sale. Normally, the entire potential habitat in the ¼ mile survey area is deemed “occupied” if a Murrelet is seen flying below the level of the forest canopy. This protection strategy was written by the Pacific Seabird Group (PSG). They are professionals who are volunteers with no governmental affiliation. There has been no formal peer review of their strategy. And they didn’t develop a recovery strategy. Because the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has not developed a Take Avoidance or Recovery Strategy, the PSG Protocol is the only one available. The PSG Protocol was the standard applied by the Ninth Circuit Court in a similar case coming out of Northern California.

The state pulled the timber sales and is now in the process of developing a more professional, peer reviewed protection strategy for nesting Murrelets. I stated in the article that “Now, only 15 million board feet and $8 million are expected from the Elliot this year – with no money for the Common School Fund.” I should have added that this is only a temporary position while the State develops a new protection strategy for protecting nesting Murrelets. Mr. Ferris then stated “The state should have thought about before it violated the federal Endangered Species Act. The timber industry is a shrinking one, and a lot of it is their own fault for cutting too much too fast, and then causing problems in certain areas. When you’re cutting timber so fast, you start to lose species. That’s a problem. It’s a problem that will heal itself very slowly. If you have an industry that is shrinking and declining, is that really one you want to tie your future hopes to?” Here is the truth. No violation of the Endangered Species Act has occurred. The timber industry is a relatively stable and mature industry and not in a shrinking mode. Harvesting on private and state timber lands is occurring at a sustainable level as researched by the Oregon Forest Resource Institute. Why should we be concerned? 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.

the main population center, wasn’t at risk for dominating county government any more. Having all those other county officers be appointed meant they didn’t have to spend time running for re-election – and when they retired, the county could hire experts from anywhere, rather than being limited to the pool of registered voters in the county. Perhaps the biggest plus, though, was it saved money. Instead of paying salary and benefits for three county commissioners, the county was paying the salary and benefits of one person – the county manager. All those sound like arguments for doing a home rule charter here, in Tillamook County. Especially the “saving money” one. That’s why the voters of Curry County, in far southern Oregon, were seriously considering a home rule charter this year; with the county budget in a shambles, thanks to the near-total loss of Federal forest funds, any opportunity to save money was looking mighty good. Of course, there are arguments against doing it. People who have jobs are understandably not interested

in losing them – and if I were county commissioner, I’d be painfully aware that the home rule charter I was proposing would eliminate not only my job, but the jobs of two other innocent people. Folks in rural areas are also generally resistant to change, and that’s understandable, too: for rural folks, most change has historically been bad. Those two factors may be the main reason home rule charters never caught on in 27 of Oregon’s 36 counties. State law doesn’t making getting a home rule charter all that easy, either. Your county commissioners get to appoint half the charter committee; your state legislators appoint the rest. The committee has two years to do its work in, and is entitled to a budget of – hold your breath, now -- $500 to do everything with. A lot of home rule charter committees never finish their work. To say it’s an idea worth considering may be an outsider’s viewpoint. I’ve only lived here 13 years myself – I don’t have a road named after me, and am unlikely to get one. Still, I hate to pass up an opportunity to save money. Interested?

GROWTH: northwestern Oregon counties, Tillamook was the only one to see an increase in government jobs over last year. McMullen said that moving forward, the coastal counties will see more service jobs, such as computers and business services, which thus far largely have been confined to the bigger cities. Sykes said another indicator of a healing economy is the number of new building permits issued. “It gauges the construction industry, the real estate sector, as well as developers’, investors’ and consumers’ confidence in the economy,” she said. “It means banks are confident the borrower will be able to repay the loan, developers are confident they will be able to sell the house at a profit,

and consumers are confident their jobs are secure enough to maintain a steady income to repay the loan.” The number of new permits in Tillamook County has plateaued a bit over the past three years, topping out at 58 this year. By comparison, Columbia County’s permits have slowly risen since 2011. Clatsop County saw a brief comeback in 2010, then quickly dropped again, down to 26 permits in 2013. Yet those numbers can be confusing, Sykes said. She said they apply only to the unincorporated areas in a county, since cities issue their permits separately. Jeremy Ruark contributed to this story.

sion was considered final when signed April 1 by Mayor Suzanne Weber. The Tillamook PUD’s board of directors voted April 16 to appeal that decision to LUBA. The PUD first attempted to mediate with the landowners, but those efforts were unsuccessful, city planner David Mattison told the Headlight Herald in August. LUBA accordingly received the city’s “record” – all the paperwork leading up to and including the decision – Aug. 21. In the LUBA hearing Dec. 5, both sides will be represented by attor-

neys (LUBA’s three panel members are themselves attorneys). Under LUBA’s rules, there will be no further hearings. A decision – LUBA calls them “final opinions” – is expected before the end of December. The board of appeals could: • Uphold the city’s denial of the PUD’s conditional-use permit • Rule in favor of the PUD and overturn the city’s denial • Or remand the decision back to the city to re-do. That usually happens when LUBA decides the local governing body made a

egon, not federal agencies. Wyden’s proposal would “keep it federal,” with the land continuing to be managed by the BLM. According to a smallscale map distributed along with Wyden’s synopsis, most of the O&C land in Tillamook County would be part of the “forestry emphasis area.” Wyden proposes to streamline the lawsuitridden forestry program by requiring just one comprehensive environmental impact statement for the entire “forestry emphasis area,” good for 10 years. That’s opposed to having an impact statement for every timber sale. That said, there’s no deadline in Wyden’s synopsis for when that big environmental impact statement would need to be completed. The “forestry emphasis” half of the 2.1 million acres, managed on a sustainableyield basis, would produce 300 to 350 million board feet of timber annually, Wyden said. That estimate relies on research by professors Norm Johnson and Jerry Franklin, who provided the timber estimates for the Northwest Forest Plan created during the Clinton Administration. That production estimate “needs to have further research by smart people,” Josi said. “Are the numbers projected for timber volume

really right? And does it make demonstrable changes in the appeals process? Or is it just talk?” Environmental groups have mobilized against Wyden’s proposal, claiming it would increase logging. (It would: Under the Northwest Forest Plan, forestry is allowed on only 15 percent of the O&C lands. Wyden’s proposal – and the House bill – would raise that to 50 percent.) As for the counties involved, “We can’t endorse what [Wyden’s] done,” Josi said. In a Dec. 2 press release, Douglas County commissioner Doug Reobertson, president of the Association of O&C Counties, expressed “disappointment” over Wyden’s proposal. “The likely job and economic benefits seem far below reasonable levels given the productivity of these lands,” he said. The House bill, authored

procedural mistake. The PUD still must seek conditional-use approval from Tillamook County for the balance of its proposed transmission line route to Oceanside that isn’t within the Tillamook city limits. The PUD is waiting to submit an application to the county until the future of its route through the city is decided, said its public relations manager, Barbara Johnson. The LUBA hearing is scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. in the Land Board Room of the Department of State Lands building at 775 Summer St. NE.

by Congressmen Walden, Schrader and DeFazio, “is still our preferred solution by a wide margin,” noted Rocky McVay, the association’s executive director. There’s a question of whether the 1937 Oregon and California Lands Act, with its requirements of sustained-yield forestry and producing revenue for county governments, “trumps the Endangered Species Act,” said Josi. A lawsuit over that issue is making its way through the federal courts, he said, and “we could be on the verge of winning.” Changing the law therefore “gives us a great deal of concern,” he said. On the other hand, “If we don’t support it and it doesn’t pass, we get blamed for it,” Josi said. “If we do support it, knowing it won’t work, and it doesn’t work, we get blamed for it. It’s a no-win situation.”

‘Shop With a Cop’ continues to grow Criminal Convictions By Sayde Moser

For an eighth year running, “Shop With a Cop” will take over the Fred Myer store at the north end of Tillamook on Dec. 14 to bring happy law enforcement officials and children together. re Tillamook Police Det. ity Nick Troxel was instrumental c in bringing the program to ara town. “I’ve been involved with the program since s 1995,” he said. 30 At that time, Troxel said, he was a cadet with the t of Corvallis Police Department. 775 When he came to Tillamook in 2003, he was shocked to find there wasn’t a “Shop With a Cop” program here. A few years later, Troxel talked to Tillamook Police Chief Terry Wright about n, partnering with Fred Myer. “is “Our first year, we had on about $25 to spend per kidd do,” Troxel recalls.

Tillamook Police Chief Terry Wright helps a girl pick out a Barbie doll during the 2011 Shop with a Cop event at Fred Meyer. “It’s a very positive interaction with law enforcement,” Troxel said. “And a lot of times, these children aren’t the only ones who are having positive contacts.” Troxel said that in past years, local law enforcement officials have worked closely with the Salvation Army to determine which children will benefit most from “Shop With a Cop.” The program also relies heavily on recommendations from area police officers. “If we respond to a call and see there’s a need for these kiddos,” Troxel said, “then we will alert the Department of Human Services that this is a family we’d like to reach” through “Shop With a Cop.”

He said the agency often then contacts the youngster’s family to offer a chance to participate. “I don’t think we’ve had anybody say no,” said Troxel. The program is designed for children ages 4-10 because “they’re still moldable,” he said. “If they’ve had some kind of negative experience with us, be it arresting a parent or removing them from a home, and we don’t try to combat that with a positive impact, then they’ll form an unfavorable opinion.” Those who participate, be it from city police departments, the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office or the Oregon State Police, all vol-

The store provides a breakfast for the kids and also supplies a generous portion of the funds needed to take the kids shopping, he said. When the youngsters arrive, they’re paired up with one of the volunteer police officers. “We’re careful with pairing up, because we want to ensure the child is going to have a good time,” said Troxel. So if there’s a language barrier, for example, the officer is bilingual. “If we know an officer was involved pretty heavily with one particular family, we might pair that child with someone else,” he said. “Other times, officers will email me or DHS and say, ‘I want this family to go and I want to take them shopping.’” Last year, said Troxel, the sponsors spent more than $6,000 on gifts for 60 children. Businesses and individuals who wish to donate to “Shop With a Cop” can send a check made out to the Tillamook Police Cadet Association, 207 Madrona Avenue, Tillamook, OR 97141. In the memo line, specify “Shop With a Cop.”

Local housing market getting better? By Joe Wrabek

Is the Tillamook County real estate market improving? That depends on the criteria you’re using, said two area realtors. “I like to rely on the number of closed sales,” Pete Anderson Realty’s John Coopersmith told the Headlight Herald. His firm has had more closed sales in 2013 than in 2012, “but the average days on the market was 209.” (It was 148 days two years ago.) Coopersmith attributed the increase in Pete Anderson Realty’s sales – double what it was in 2010 – to an improving economy. “There has been more activity,” broker Rob Trost agreed, “but it hasn’t resulted in higher prices.” In fact, “We have noticed of late that prices are starting to get softer. Sellers are becoming anxious.” Coopersmith, who works in Pete Anderson’s Manzanita office, sells real estate primarily from Wheeler north to Neahkahnie. Trost is headquartered in Netarts and has offices in Tillamook and

They need to were easy to get. Now, under- sell or they need to buy.”

That said, homes at the very top of the market – what Trost calls “trophy homes” – don’t have any trouble selling. “But newer houses around $200,000 should be flying off the shelf,” he said. “They’re not.” Recent increases in flood insurance premiums have had a dampening effect on this region’s real estate sales, Trost said. “It’s cast a pall on the market.” Coopersmith agreed. “People are asking what the [insurance] rates are going to be. The market does not like uncertainty.” On the plus side, “There are fewer forced sales,” Coopersmith said, “and we’re finally starting to see foreclosure sales decline.” Buyers like the prices they’re seeing, he added. In the near term, “I see stability,” Coopersmith said. He predicted that real estate sales in 2014 will closely follow 2013’s track record. “It’s going to be a long, hard slog,” Trost predicted. “People are very nervous about doing anything. They’re waiting for the other shoe to drop.”

City of Tillamook and Tillamook County Creamery Association create partnership to promote downtown Tillamook The City of Tillamook and the Tillamook County Creamery Association (TCCA) are embarking on a partnership to develop a brand positioning strategic plan for use in guiding city planning, promotion and project executions. As part of this partnership, TCCA will provide brand planning leadership as well as marketing resources to help guide development of communications support materials as needed. Once complete, this strategic plan can be used by all downtown participants/partners such as the Tillamook Revitalization Association, the Tillamook Economic Development Commission, the Tillamook Urban Renewal Agency and private enterprises, as they implement promotional efforts and projects. Leading these efforts to

help the City will be TCCA’s Senior Director of Marketing John Russell. Russell will be developing a proposed brand positioning strategic plan outline and timetable to share with the city for feedback and approvals in the next few weeks, before getting started on developing the actual plan. Mayor Suzanne Weber commented, “The opportunity to work with the TCCA on the level we are discussing is a game changer for the City of Tillamook,” said Tillamook Mayor Suzanne Weber. “They have a wealth of talent and experience that they are willing to share. It encourages us both to grow and develop resources that are beneficial to all of our goals.” TCCA’s CEO Patrick Criteser added, “We’re eager to see the kind of benefits that a comprehensive brand

strategy can provide to our community, as we seek to grow together. We are fortunate to have a very talented brand and marketing team at TCCA and are glad to be able to share our resources with the city through this partnership.” This announcement dovetails with the city’s launching of a town center partnership initiative on Dec. 10 at 5:30 p.m. at the 2nd Street Public Market. Sheri Stuart, state coordinator of Oregon Main Street (OMS), will be on hand to speak with business owners, property owners, residents, local government officials, community organizations and all who are interested in the future of Tillamook’s downtown area. OMS helps communities throughout the state preserve and revitalize the economy, appearance, and image of







their traditional business districts. Stuart will speak about the “Main Street Approach” which is a nationally proven methodology for revitalizing historic commercial districts and how to learn to leverage the community’s collective skills so that the end result is a business district that becomes a gathering place and provides the good and services that community desires. Her presentation will be the kick-off of a larger coordination effort this winter, which will be hosted by the Tillamook Revitalization Association and will seek to develop a prioritized action plan for the revitalization of the town center.

A look at parking in downtown Tillamook By Joe Wrabek

Parking space in downtown Tillamook could be getting a makeover soon. Ten invited “stakeholders” met Dec. 2 at the 2nd Street Public Market, with consultants Rick Williams and Owen Ronchelli of Portland, to discuss the city’s parking situation. On hand were Gary Albright of the Pioneer Museum; Don Hurd, Chris Kell and Tom Connaughton of the Tillamook Revitalization Association; Tillamook Mayor Suzanne Weber; insurance broker Jeff Hurliman; Steve Kershaw, who owns the Anderson Florist building; Amber McMullin of the Blue Moon Café; and Ray Jacobs, who owns Fat Dog Pizza and is on the city’s Planning Commission. The consultants’ work is being underwritten by the City of Tillamook through a Transportation/Growth Management grant from the state Department of Land Conservation and Development and the Oregon Department of Transportation. “This is not the best time of year to be doing a parking study,” Williams told his audience. Rather than doing data collection during the high-volume tourist season, “we have folks like you who know what’s going on.” The meeting precedes a larger community gathering the consultants have scheduled for late January. Williams said their final report to the city – with recommendations on how to deal with downtown parking – is due in mid-February. The attendees were asked what was working well in downtown Tillamook’s parking, and what could be improved. • Mayor Weber asked how making Second Street between Main and Pacific into a “pedestrian area”

would affect traffic and parking. If a pedestrian-only street is created, said Williams, “Your commitment level has to go way up.” Pedestrian plazas in Eugene and Coos Bay have failed, he said, because “there was no commitment to bringing people to the space.” Williams recommended instead creating what he called a “festival street,” one that could be closed off periodically for events such as last summer’s popular “Music and Brew Fest.” “Experiment with it and see how it works,” he said. Increase the number of events every year and “in 10 years, you can ask seriously whether you ought to close the street permanently.” • The consultants appeared surprised to hear of the Oregon Department of Transportation’s plans to redesign the downtown intersection of U.S. Highway 101 and Oregon Highway 6, which includes narrowing the sidewalks on Main and Pacific avenues. “If you have retail, you need walkability,” Williams noted. “If there are narrower sidewalks, you can’t put tables out in the summer.” Also, he said, wider highway lanes will result in increased speeds through the downtown. Sidewalk “bump-outs” at corners would make pedestrians feel safer, said Williams, but they’ll remove roughly one parking space per block, as well as causing “drainage issues.” • As for downtown Tillamook’s parking regulations, retailer Connaughton said they had become a “notorious problem.” Museum director Albright agreed. “I’ve jumped up and down about it for 10 years,” he said. There is limited handicapped parking downtown, and no parking for employees unless businesses create or buy their own.

Bobcats look for new leadership by Chelsea Yarnell

The young Nestucca boys’ basketball team is still looking for leadership, but Head Coach Jim Kiser hopes someone will step up soon. In his fifth year as head coach for the Bobcats, Kiser is joined by Assistant Coach and Athletic Director John Elder for the 2013-14 season. The Bobcats look to improve on last year’s performance where the team saw very few wins. “It was rough, we won three or four games. We have seven guys back this year.” Those seven include Max Kirkendall, Keenan Wenrick and Brett Elder who saw significant playing time last season. Kiser plans to

alter the team’s offense this year and watch how they adapt. “We’re changing our offense around a little bit. We’re going to be a little more free flowing. Last year we were a little more structured.” As for the league’s top contenders, Kiser believes that the field is wide open because most of the teams in the Northwest League lost some of their best players. But, if he were to guess, he’d place Knappa and Riverdale High Schools at the top, followed by Nestucca. “I’m hoping we can get a chance at the playoffs,” Kiser said. And the strategy is pretty simple. “I like to score more points than the other team,” Kiser said. The boys play Wednesday, at home against Waldport. Game starts at 7:30 p.m.

Third annual Elite 32 Bowling Tournament by Chelsea Yarnell

Oregon Coast Dance Center students practice for their upcoming performance of the ‘Cheese’cracker. Performances are scheduled for Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 14 at 2 p.m. at the Tillamook High School Don Whitney Auditorium.

The ‘Cheese’cracker

Oregon Coast Dance Center puts a Tillamook twist on the traditional Nutcracker ballet by Chelsea Yarnell

After defeating an army of mice with an alliance of farmers, Clara and her Nutcracker Prince take a wrong turn on their way to the Land of Sweets and end up in the Land of Cheese ruled by the June Fairy Princess. The ‘Cheese’cracker, Oregon Coast Dance Center’s Tillamook twist on Tchaikovsky’s ‘The Nutcracker,’ spoofs the classic ballet and brings to life some of the charm of the town. The traditional story begins with a Christmas party in the parlor, but OCDC starts things up Tillamook style in a barn party. After the Nutcracker is transformed into a Prince during a snow (and rain) storm, he takes Clara to the Land of Cheese, a re-creation of the Tillamook Cheese Factory where the June Fairy

Princess rules the land. And in the place of Mother Ginger and her polichinelles, there’s Mother Cow with all her dairy products. The idea originally came from former OCDC owner Rachel Martin, but she never had the chance to put it in place. Instead, for the past seven years OCDC has performed the original ‘Nutcracker.’ “I took over the studio in May,” current OCDC owner Lisa Greiner said. “She has always talked about doing the ‘Cheese’cracker and she’s moving to Mexico next month to do missionary work with her husband. It’s like a little send off for her.” Over 125 dance students ranging from three-years old to adult ballet have been practicing since September for the ‘Cheese’cracker performance as well as for the opening jazz, tap, and hip-hop dances.

Several of the unconventional costumes and sets have been handmade by dancers and parents themselves along with the support of the Tillamook Cheese Factory. “The Creamery has been very supportive,” Greiner said. “They are giving us, ‘Tilla-Moos,’ prepackaged samples, for intermission. They’re [also] giving us some of their packaging to use for some of the costumes.” Performances will be hosted at the Tillamook High School Don Whitney Auditorium Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 14 at 2 p.m. Admission is $5 and benefits OCDC’s traveling competition dance team. “It’s a holiday tradition, the Nutcracker, and it’s fun for the entire family, it’s a great night out. It’s going to be even more fun this year with a Tillamook twist,” Greiner said.

For some, bowling is just a fun night out with friends, but for others it’s a competitive sport. On Dec. 7 and 8, the public is invited to see a unique showcase event at Tillamook Lanes where the best bowlers will go head-to-head in competition. The Elite 32 Bowling Tournament was the idea of bowler Ron Haymond because he could not find a similar contest in the area. “I really wanted something to reward bowlers and push them to be better bowlers,” Haymond said. “You can come out and have fun, have a kick, but it’s also a sport...It’s about competition for me.” Entrance into the competition is based on the previous season’s average and is open to the top 32 bowlers from any league at Tillamook Lanes. Haymond expects to have a full 32 bowling roster. In previous years the winner of the tournament received only a trophy, but this year several local businesses have chosen to sponsor the event including Hudson Insurance, the Foundation Wellness Center, Bennett Family Farm, Hallowell Logger’s Supply, and Rendezvous Restaurant & Lounge. Together they will award a purse of over $1,000 to be split between the top eight players. Last year, Tim Oge clinched the title, out-beating Ron Haymond 222-216 in the final round. The event starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday with the championship round beginning around 1 p.m. on Sunday. “It gives the public an opportunity to see these bowlers. They represent the area’s best,” Haymond said. And an additional bonus Haymond adds, “Rain or shine, you’ll be dry.”

Tradition finally reignited for the Bobcats wrestling

g to m ond have a for

tion on’s p 32 by Chelsea Yarnell Tilpects Creating tradition is a ter. hard task, but Head Coach ner Cameron Mitchem may nly finally see his time and l dedication to the program pay off. g “We’re finally getting da- some tradition. Nestucca t wrestling was cut in ‘79 ger’s and wasn’t brought back till ‘97. So, I’m finally getting hey kids now who have brothers 1,000 who have either wrestled or ght relatives that have wrestled,” Mitchem said. Athletes come ed to practice and see the names y- of family members under the und. “Nestucca Wrestling Hall of . on Fame” and want to exceed e those accomplishments, ng Mitchem explains. In his sixth year for the Bobcats, Mitchem is intens. tional in training his team: t,” ional or

Simple game plan for Pirates

“Everyday is practice: get better everyday.” Mitchem returns two state competitors to his team. Seniors Nathan Parks and Cody Fouche have each made appearances at the state meet, but have yet to place. “This is actually the first year I have not had a returning state placer,” Mitchem said. A state placing may be in reach for Parks this year; pre-season polls rank him third in the 160-weight class division. Thirteen other Bobcats will join Parks and Fouche as they kick of the wrestling season. “I’m excited about the group of kids we’ve got. They all want to work hard,” Mitchem said. Nestucca travels to Knappa on Wednesday for their first match of the year.

The Neah-Kah-Nie boys’ basketball team returns to the court after only winning two games last season. Turnovers and failure to effectively rebound contributed to several of their losses, but Head Coach Steve Sherren is hopefully that his team can work on boxing out and progress from last year. “We’re going to be pretty young, we’ll probably be a mix of seniors in sophomores,” Sherren said. “Hopefully we’re going to try and improve on last year, but I’d say a good goal for us is to get that last play-off spot.” In order to earn the last play-off spot, the Pirates must finish in the top four in the Northwest League. Sherren believes that Portland Christian and Gaston High School will be the top contenders in the league because of their returning players, size, and maturity. But Sherren also anticipates that his boys’ work in the off-season will pay off. “The younger guys we have have put in a lot of time on their own doing extra summer league, working to get better.” One of those athletes is Traveion Morris whom Sher-

ren credits with great ball control and hopes Morris’ skills can decrease Pirate turnovers. “Traveion will be a key for us this year, he swung last year. He shoots the ball, handles the ball really well. So we need him to play well.” Sherren creates a very personalized game for his players. “Most of the time, I try to adapt our offense and defense to the personnel we have. So, we change, we’re not so much a system as some people were we do the same thing year after year. So our base philosophy is to get everybody involved…we want everyone to be wellrounded players, (not just shooters, or strong defensive players).” The Pirates will also tackle the season with a simpler game plan, but Sherren believes it will do the trick. “We try to use more of a passing game, than a structure. We don’t run a lot of set plays or patterned offense. Sometimes that may hinder us, but we’ve had some guys in the program long enough that we should see some success.” The Pirates first game is away Dec. 4 at Corbett. First home game is Friday, Dec. 13 against Faith Bible.

Bobcats ‘hungry and ready to improve’ by Chelsea Yarnell

After a rough season last winter, the Nestucca girls’ basketball team looks to improve this year under new leadership. Coming from Mitchell High School in central Oregon, Tim Foster joins the Bobcats for his first year as head coach. Foster has a coaching background in basketball, along with football and track and field. Still finding his bearings with the new team, he finds it hard to predict where exactly they’ll end up. “I know we’ll be improved, but how that translates into wins and losses, I don’t know,” Foster said. Foster receives several returning varsity players including: seniors Marissa Dempsey, Jaclyn Wilkinson, Shanna Cox; and juniors Monica

Chatelain and Kycie Richwine. “I think we’ll be more competitive with everybody. We should be able to sneak up on some teams and get some wins,” Foster said. Foster brings with him a coaching philosophy that he says was his previous teams signature trait. “It’s having that relentless pursuit of your goal, you don’t give up no matter what the score is…whether we’re down by 20 or ahead or a tight game, we’re playing with the same intensity and same effort. That’s where we can overcome some of our inabilities and compete with those teams that are maybe more talented.” The Bobcats first game is Wednesday at home against Waldport High School at 6 p.m. “Overall, I’m excited. They’re hungry and ready to improve,” Foster said.

Cheesemakers return to the mats after finishing fifth last year by Chelsea Yarnell

Just barely missing out on a trophy last year at the 4A Oregon State Wrestling meet, the Cheesemakers return to the mats for another go at it. After winning their eight straight district title and third straight regional title, the Cheesemaker wrestlers finished fifth as a team at the 2012-13 state meet. Lonnie Eggert will lead the Cheesemakers this season in his tenth year as head coach. Born and raised in Tillamook, Eggert himself excelled through the wrestling program at Tillamook, placing as high as fourth at the state meet. “Our goal is to be offensive and score as many points as we can before our tank runs out. Our philoso-

phy is also: be ready by the end of the year,” Eggert said. “We don’t back off much until that time. It’s worked for us and the kids have bought into it. It’s going to be an interesting year for us. We expect no less. Even with the downs, I expect the core group to step it up and continue that tradition of winning. It just puts a little more pressure on them than we have in the past.’” The squad’s numbers are a little lower than usual, capping around 34 athletes rather than above 40. “We’ll be okay. Where we lack is our inexperience in our younger group, which we’ve never had in the past. Normally our younger guys have been our depth. We’ve had a good core in the beginning and our younger guys have added depth, but this year we’re going to have some

kids who’ve had a little less experience than we’ve had in the past,” Eggert said. But even with lower numbers, the Cheesemakers return a couple of core members. Justin Coon comes back after finishing fifth at the state meet in the 106-weight division and, with all top five state finishers returning this season in his division, he is ranked fifth in the state (Oregon Wrestler). Senior Logan Weeks also returns to the team after finishing fourth in the 132-weight class last season. He is currently predicted to finish second in the state. “I feel strong, confident,” Weeks said. “I’ve gone to a couple camps and been practicing since September and we’ve been lifting since September.” Pre-season predictions also have Anthony Imel ranked sixth in the 120-weight division and Drew Owens fourth in the 138 class. “I lost my placing match by one, it’s pushing me this year,” Owens said. “We’re not the most athletic, but we work harder than anybody.” The road to the state meet has changed for the Cheesemakers this year. Instead of qualifying for the regional meet, two lineups will be taken to a “super-regional.” League and district titles will still be awarded, but

The Tillamook wrestlers return for another season after placing fifth as a team last year at state. Several of the wrestlers received top pre-season rankings in the state. The Cheesemakers first home match is Friday starting at 1 p.m. they will not be qualifiers. “We have the potential to have more placers than we did last year,” Eggert said. Tillamook’s wrestling program has a tradition of excellence, but the training it not for the faint of heart. “Basically military attitude,” Eggert said of his condi-

tioning regiment. “When you’re in here things are pretty structured. From the time they come and go it’s a go. Basically [that’s] how we expect them to wrestle, constantly on the move. We consider it a grind...and that aspect runs some kids off.” The Cheesemakers are

ranked seventh in the preseason polls and league competitor Scappoose received a second place ranking. Will their intense training pay-off with a state trophy? “It’s really up to them,” Eggert said. See the Cheesemakers wrestle this Friday at home starting at 1 p.m.

Pirates welcome new wrestling coach and return state placers by Chelsea Yarnell

The Pirates return a few of the state’s top wrestlers for the 2013-14 season, and leading this year’s squad is first year Head Coach Greg Kelley. Kelley recently moved to Tillamook County from Lakeview High School to be closer to family. While at Lakeview, he was the head wrestling coach for four years with a very prestigious program. In his time there, he coached several top-five state finishers and two state champions. “I have no regrets leaving the program I helped build in Lakeview, in fact I have often wished them the best of luck and will always cherish my memories and time spent there... I am also excited with the opportunity to lead a program with a rich wrestling tradition as Neah-Kah-Nie and to hopefully be a part of the positive change to get the program back to its previous heights.” In his new Neah-Kah-Nie program, he has inherited three previous state placers including senior Alejandro Quintana. Quintana placed second last year in the 132-weight class at the 2A Oregon State Wrestling Tournament for the second year in a row. Quintana starts the season ranked second in the state along with teammate senior Logan Romig who is also ranked seventh in the 132-weight class. Rankings are based on ‘Oregon Wrestlers’ predictions. Five other returners and nine new faces join Quintana and Romig for the Pirates’ wrestling season. “We’re a young team that has a lot of potential, that is willing to work hard,” Kelley said. “If we keep working the way we are and we keep working hard, we’ll have a lot of possibilities and a lot of opportunities.” In order to seize those opportunities, Kelley brings a unique perspective to nurture his new team to success. “My coaching philosophy is a family-oriented atmosphere where we teach the athletes to be their own best coach and rely on themselves.” The Pirates will face several tough competitors this season, but Kelley believes that the team to beat will be Monroe High School who won the 2A/1A Special District League Championships and finished fourth as a team at state last year. “There’s other teams in the league that have very strong traditional programs,” Kelley said. “I like to think of ourselves as a program that’s had a lot of success, we have it in the future, but we’re definitely a team that going to be building. If we do our work, we’re going to surprise teams. My thought and my hope is that we’re going to be a little bit of a dark horse because people are not going to really expect much. We work hard so it’s going to be a fun year.”

The links between hearing loss and dementia

Is it a good idea to buy a hearing aid by mail or online?

Seniors who have untreated hearing loss may be at an increased risk for developing dementia, a loss of brain function that can affect memory, thinking, language, judgment and behavior. This is the finding of a study conducted by researchers from the Division of Otology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

likely to develop dementia by the end of the study. How might hearing loss and dementia be connected? Investigators aren’t sure, but they think a common pathology may underlie both conditions, or possibly the strain of decoding sounds over the years may overwhelm the brains of people with hearing loss, leaving them more vulnerable to dementia.

The study included 639 people whose hearing and cognitive abilities were tested over a period of time, starting in 1990 and concluding in 2008. Researchers found that study participants who had hearing loss at the beginning of the study were significantly more

The article concludes that, whatever the cause, these findings may offer a starting point for further research as to whether interventions, even as simple as hearing aids, could delay or prevent dementia by improving patients’ hearing.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which regulates hearing aids, says: “Hearing aids should be properly fitted by a licensed hearing healthcare professional (such as an audiologist or a hearing aid dispenser) so that the amplification matches your hearing loss. If not fitted properly, too much amplification may cause additional hearing loss.”

‘Cool’ electronic gifts may be hard on a teen’s hearing This holiday season, really “cool” parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles will give electronic devices to the teenagers in their lives. Of course, we’re talking about video game consoles, portable media players (such as an iPod), smartphones and tablet computers. Any of these devices may be used with headphones or ear buds. This means they all can potentially damage a teen’s sense of hearing. Portable media players produce significant sound levels: up to 120 decibels — similar to the output of a jet engine and louder than a pneumatic drill. Researchers report that listening to music on an iPod at full volume for more than five minutes, using the supplied earphones, may increase a person’s risk of hearing loss. Video game enthusiasts who use head-phones or ear buds may also risk hearing damage by listening, according to an article at www.gameinformer. com. “Anything at or above 85 decibels for

For years, you’ve seen the magazine ads for amazingly cheap hearing aids that are “every bit as good” as more expensive hearing aids provided by hearing-care professionals. More recently, a growing number of companies have been selling hearing aids via the Internet. The problem is that hearing aids are not merely amplifiers. They are sophisticated digital devices and require professional services including: 1) Audiometric testing to determine your unique hearing needs. 2) Selection and programming of the hearing aids to match your hearing loss. 3) Verification testing to ensure that you’re receiving maximum benefit. 4) Aftercare service, such as reprogramming, cleaning and adjustment

a prolonged period of time potentially could cause hearing loss,” states an audiologist in the article. When listening through earphones or ear buds, the Better Hearing Institute recommends turning the volume down to 60% of the maximum level, if listening up to an hour per day and lower than that for longer durations. In addition, take a 15 to 20 minute break after every hour of listening. If electronic devices are in your gift-giving plans, wrap it up with this message: It’s okay to be cool AND smart about your listening habits!

Still a work in progress, the student garden at Nehalem Elementary School is taking shape and will be a beehive of activity by the time spring arrives next year.

Student garden sprouts at Nehalem Elementary By Cara Mico

For The Headlight Herald

Time spent outdoors can make kids happier, healthier, and ready to learn when they return to the classroom. That’s why Nehalem Elementary School parents and teachers have been working together to install a learning garden in a rarely used play field at the school. Last year, a small group of volunteers started working with the school to bring the learning garden to fruition. Several schools in the county already have similar garden programs in place. For example, Cloverdale Elementary works with local non-profit Food Roots in south Tillamook County and Tillamook High School has an extensive natural resource program and greenhouse on their facility. Although outdoor education has been part of local student curriculum both at home and in the classroom, there was no space for kids to get their hands dirty and actually grow food for themselves on the Nehalem Elementary campus until now. Prior to this, garden students were transported by bus a few times a year to nearby Alder Creek Farm to learn the importance of soil

health and community gardens, but the cost and time associated with transportation limited field trips. This garden will enhance those few trips they do get to the farm. It takes a lot of work to run a garden and when the students do visit Alder Creek Farm, all of the hard stuff is largely finished and they see the end result of hidden labor. There is something really special about watching a seed sprout and end up in a salad in the course of several weeks. Having the garden on campus has another advantage as well, at some point; students get to eat the foods they’ve grown. But for now, that isn’t on the table given the restrictions associated with school lunches. Already, with the help of local businesses, the learning garden committee has erected an elk-proof, no-climb fence and framed in the raised beds with supplies donated by Nehalem Lumber. When the school grounds keeper saw kids struggling with the posthole digger, he offered to help and prepared all of the fence postholes. The Nehalem Bay Garden Club donated $500 for fencing and seedlings; Mohler Sand and Gravel is providing top soil; the local Master Gardeners are also on board; and Food Roots is providing a

curriculum that meets all of the core requirements so teachers won’t have to worry about the learning garden taking away from standardized testing prep work. Right now, the 250 square foot garden will be watered with a hose from the school, but there are plans in place to install rain barrels, which entails a complicated permit process. In fact, Tammi Waldron, a parent volunteer, said the hardest part of the entire process has been the coordination. And, with Garibaldi Grade School and the Nehalem Middle School both looking to employ a similar program, talks are in the works to seek funding for a garden coordinator to work with all three schools and food roots. However, that is in the future. Right now, the volunteers are just hoping to have everything in place so that they can harvest the first fruits of their labors by next fall. If you’d like to make a donation, or volunteer to help with the construction, contact the school. Either email or write a check to the Nehalem Elementary School noting on the check that the funds are for the Nehalem School Garden Project.

A ‘Y’ story Meet Ron and Deb Zuercher. The before picture to the right is of this couple at the bottom of their fitness level. Both are approaching 300 pounds in weight, they have spent several years as long-haul truck drivers (the ultimate in sedentary life-style) during which time they consumed bags of chips and drank several sodas in a day of driving. Once at the truck stops, they had access to real food but it was always in the form of a buffet, the all-you-can-eat variety. Their physician had encouraged them to begin walking in an attempt to lose weight and get their vital sign numbers into more normal ranges. In addition to the concern for their unhealthy condition, they “just didn’t feel good” and lacked the energy to do the fun things they wished to do such as enjoying activities with their grandchildren. Upon retirement, they took their doctor’s advice to walk on a 2-mile-long walking path close to their home in Burns. It was an incremental process. The path had benches spaced along the length of the path. The first day they made it to the first bench. They went a little further each day until eventually they were walking five miles at a time. Ron is very quick to say it was Deb’s encouragement and partnership that kept him at this task. Recently, the couple made the decision to return to Tillamook to be closer to family. Once back in their home town and wishing to stay with their exercise program, they found the Tillamook winter weather to be a stumbling block to consistently walking long distances outside and so they decided to investigate the YMCA. They were pleased to see exercise equipment such as treadmills, ellipticals, and stationery

bicycles available in the fitness center. They asked about membership and learned that they could benefit from the scholarship program due to their limited income. In late March of this year, they became members and have been using the fitness center consistently since then. You can find Ron in the fitness center six or seven days a week; Deb is there five days a week. In March, Ron was walking on the treadmill at a 20-minute mile rate; he now walks at a 15-minute mile clip. Quite an improvement in such a short time. He’s also lost a significant amount of weight. In March his weight was 255 pounds. He now weighs 210 pounds and is only 20 pounds from his goal. Deb has lost 32 pounds and still has about 85 to reach her goal and is determined to keep working toward it. Deb reports they have made some changes to their eating habits still eating the foods they love but being mindful of the portions consumed and

Affordable health insurance

they are incorporating many more vegetables and fruits into their diet. This exercise routine and life-style change has brought Ron’s cholesterol numbers into the normal or lower range and his blood pressure is 122/74. Deb’s blood pressure has always been fine and now so are her cholesterol numbers. Ron and Deb are very positive about their Y experience saying, “Everyone has been friendly, helpful, and encouraging. We are also connecting with friends, classmates and acquaintances from are earlier years in Tillamook. We just like being here.” “I would be happy to help anyone who’s considering getting started working out at the Y,” added Rom. “My next event is to take swimming lessons at the Y. I never learned to swim and the Y is the perfect place to learn this skill.” To Ron and Deb we say, we’re proud of your accomplishments and welcome you into the YMCA family.

artwork, and I’ll be peddling copies of my new CD. Have I mentioned the CDs make great Christmas gifts? Cecile’s artwork does, too. By the time you read this, the Garibaldi Lions Club’s big donation barrels will be out. Fill them, please, with new, unwrapped toys and canned or otherwise non-perishable foodstuffs; these are for the Christmas baskets that will go to our needy families. Last year, the Lions had donation barrels at the post office, Garibaldi Library, the Food Basket, Sterling Bank, and Tami’s Barber Shop, and it’s expected they will again this year. The Garibaldi Library will not be having a Holiday Reading Program this year—not enough time to prepare for it, I was told. Next Christmas, perhaps. It’s been real popular. The Garibaldi Library does have their kids’ Christmas books out to check out. That promised survey of what people want to see at and in the county libraries is out. You can take the survey online, at, or on one of the computers at

the library – and there’s even a printed version, for those folks who don’t want to deal with a computer. The survey takes about five minutes (library staff timed it), and is anonymous. The results of the survey will help the Library Board and library staff set budget priorities over the next five years. The survey will be out and available through the end of December; come January, they’ll start tabulating the results. Don’t forget the Garibaldi Days kickoff meeting Monday, Dec. 9, 10 a.m. in the council chambers at Garibaldi city hall. They really need your help. And the next day, Tuesday Dec. 10, is the Port of Garibaldi’s “interactive wharf planning” meeting, starting at 3 p.m. on the dance floor at city hall. Come by at your convenience anytime between 3 and 5:30, and share your thoughts and ideas with the planners; then, if you like, come back at 6:30 and see how well they’ve “amalgamated” everybody’s input. Remember Bruce Vincent’s proverb: “The world is run by those who show up.” Show up, and let ‘em know what you think.

Open 9-7 seven days a week, they carry live and cut Christmas trees, miniature trees, and locally made wreaths. Santa Claus will visit daily, weather permitting. Hebo Women’s Book Club met last Thursday at the Hebo home of Marilyn Burkhardt to discuss A Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes. Besides me and our hostess, attendees included Ginger HarlowAllen, Mary Faith Bell with her son Carl, Sharon Kesey, Ginger Rasmussen, and Pat Sears. All agreed that the tale was beautifully written and at 163 pages, an easy read. For me, the story was reminiscent of Salinger’s classic, Catcher in the Rye, but better. I’ve been meaning to drop by the old Beaver Mercantile to meet new proprietress Marie Roberts. She wrote this past week that she and her husband will open Beaver Mercantile for business from 10-5 December Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (except Dec. 15) before Christmas. Let’s welcome the Roberts’ business to South County! On the subject of holiday cheer, free wreath making workshops will be held from 10:30-1 on Sunday Dec. 1 and Saturday, Dec. 7 at Nestucca Bay

ur friend Louann d Swanson (this e column writer ot. ill for over 15 years), was n- celebrating her birthday ov/ compliments of her girlph- friends. They were joyfully having glasses of wine mes, and hors d’oeuvres when er- a young man introduced rt himself saying he wanted op, the girls to know how nice Canadians can be. He paid m. on their bill. Well, after he h- left Louann was not only wondering where he was e 50 years ago, but she now thinks her friends owe her s on, another meal. Yup, now that’s our Louann! So, now-a-days, they eth, call it a random act of kindness, but to me it will r always be the neighborly d thing to do. I received a call last week and was told t, ny what a wonderful thing Anita Hall had done. She ssa had finished up a job and noticed that someone’s garbage can had been tipped over on Pacific Street. Well, being the good neigheal bor she is, she stopped her truck, got out and swept it all up. Then my little informant called me and let me know! Thanks, Tamara, , for that news. I love it! Well, we just had two s is: mu- birthdays, on Dec 2, in our town. Julian Croman just celebrated his 16th 41 birthday. And my husband Club Dale, well let’s just say he’s officially a senior citizen ents and leave it at that. Happy Birthday boys. Hope you ber both had a great day.

ime seems to pass so quickly. Thanksgiving is over and now we are preparing for Christmas. Definitely the time of year you get out your elastic waist pants and jeans so you can enjoy all the great food and celebrations. When you read this my family Christmas shopping will be done, however there is still another reason for me to continue shopping – great deals around town. This year the Bay City United Methodist Church is host to their 17th annual Christmas Shoppe. This is intended for those less fortunate that might not otherwise be able to afford to buy gifts for their families. Parents from the Women’s Crisis Center, Bay City, Garibaldi and many others in the community receive a special invitation to come and shop on Friday and Saturday Dec. 13 and 14. The community can help by dropping off unwrapped new items for babies, kids, teens and adults such as books, gadgets, lotions, stationary, socks, games, puzzles, gloves and scarves, toys, and anything else you might decide someone would like. Warm coats are also appreciated. Items may be brought to the church beginning Monday, Dec. 9, through Wednesday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Jim and I will be there taking donations on Monday and setting up so we would love to see you drop in and share in this wonderful blessing of giving. Also mark your calendars as the United Methodist women will be having their annual Christmas Bazaar/Bake Sale and Soup lunch on Saturday Dec. 14 at the Odd Fellows Hall in Bay City this year. They will be open from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. The church was also able to deliver 12 complete Thanksgiving Baskets plus extra food to 10 families at Garibaldi Grade School. Busy time for many people

at Beauty at the Beach, is running a holiday special throughout Dec. She will be having $5 off on her manicures and pedicures. Not only would it be nice for you, but what a perfect gift to give. They also have gift certificates available. That can help your Christmas shopping tremendously. The Friends of the Library continue their Christmas sale throughout the month. Be sure to stop by and check that out. And free computer tutoring is available by appointment this Friday, Dec. 6. Call to see if there are appointments still available. Coming up next week, Thursday, Dec. 12, 6-8, is the Annual Cookies with Santa at the Barry Mammano Fire Station. Your kids will also get a chance to ride on the fire truck. Be sure to drop by for an evening of fun. The fire department has more going on too. They have a new rotation of cadets. These are student between 15-18 years. This is the second group of kids in firefighter training. Kudos to them. And lastly, the department is in the planning stages of a chili cook-off, which will involve all of Tillamook County Fire/ EMS/Police. Keep watching for more information as this event unfolds. We went to see the wonderful TAPA play, Inspecting Carol, with our friends Marni Sheets Johnson, Terri Michel, Dave May, and a new friend from Bar View, Stephanie. Awesome company and fun play! I recommend anything TAPA. It’s always going to be good. “Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws.” That’s Rockaway Beach, “Sugar Coated.”

at the church and we thank you for your generosity. In view of the Christmas holiday in December, the Boosters will next meet Dec. 20. Members should bring their potluck items between 11:30 and noon, and the formal meeting will start at noon. Actually, there will be no regular meeting per se, but rather a Christmas celebration, which will include a gift exchange. Bay City Arts Center: The next monthly Pancake Breakfast will be held Sunday, Dec. 15. That’s a real deal at only $5 for all you can eat. Yoga classes are held every Monday and Thursday at 6 p.m. The cost is $5 per 75-minute session. If you are interested in yoga or have any questions, please call or email BCAC. All levels are welcome.  Toddler Art sessions are held every Wednesday from 10 to 11 a.m. This is a parent and child experience, and the program provides families a great time for sharing with other parents and children. There is no charge to attend, but donations are welcome to help cover the cost of utilities.   Our block captains are increasing in number, and Wendy Schink and Liane Welch are doing a terrific job developing this organization.  The block captains offer an excellent solution to the problem of communication during emergencies. Each captain knows all the families in his/her neighborhood, and their special needs. When something like a water outage occurs, the block captains can easily contact each residence to pass the word about the need to boil water, or whatever residents must do to get through the emergency.  And, better yet, the fire department will soon be installing a HAM radio base station. This will enable local HAM operators to communicate during emergencies. We are also talking about FRS radios, which do not require a license to operate. When we have a major catastrophe, we can expect that nothing will work. Without the fire department generator and HAM base station, we will have a means of communicating within the City.  Have a safe and happy week and I will see you around town!

Notes From the Coast

Mr. News Guy explains cats and dogs


t’s time once again for Mr. News Guy to explain trends in the news. What are they, Mr. News Guy? Cats. Cats dominate YouTube and run several large corporations. Mr. News Guy, cats have come a long way from the job of catching mice to the job of making us feel inferior. This presents some problems since cats haven’t had the time to evolve to their new role. Instead of helping us establish an inferiority complex by ignoring us, they present us with a bloody mouse and then ignore us. You’re upstaging me. Mr. News Guy. Do cats love us? That’s not the question you want to ask. A decent interviewer would ask do you want your cat to love you like a dog. How would you like it if when you came home in the evening, your cat Pywacket wagged its tail back and forth while grinning stupidly, leapt repeatedly into the air like a maniac while slobbering over a tennis ball it wanted you to throw, and unable to

SCHUBERT MOORE 503-965-3681

maintain attention span, attacked and swallowed your slipper? You didn’t answer the question, Mr. News Guy. You can be replaced. It would be hard to tell if a cat loved you. Cats evolved as a solitary hunter while dogs evolved from a pack. Getting dogs to party would be like taking a keg to a frat house. Partying with a cat would be like trying to get a ninja drunk. No point in being derogatory, Mr. News Guy. What does a cat’s purr mean? Amazing, You used a five-syllable word. You’re probably trying to ask what a cat’s purr means. Some experts say it’s an expression of affection while others

claim it’s just seeking your warmth and wants you to feed it while imagining what it would do if the situation were reversed and it were 15 times larger than you. Mr. News Guy, there is an issue making the news right now. The number of songbirds is falling due to cats. You seem to have an anti-cat bias. Mr. and Mrs. or Mr. and Mr. or Mrs. and Mrs. or whatever, are out for an evening walk with Billy or Susie and a cat leaps on a yellow goldfinch and looks up proudly with a couple of yellow feathers sticking to its mouth expecting you to compliment it on doing what a cat is supposed to do, a perfectly executed decapitation. Instead, the parents express horror and cover their kid’s eyes. Guh-ross, Mr. News Guy, and I don’t think it’s necessary to insult the LGBT community. Obviously you’re a dog person. The next thing that happens involves teaching their kid what happened was bad, forcing them to write letters to their senators and marching on the street corner with homemade signs.

That’s, what should happen, you haughty cat person. Have the courtesy to address me as Mr. News Guy. What should happen is they should get a life. What should happen is they should try to explain the difference in a cat killing a bird and the baby cows used to make veal Parmesan or where it is exactly we get lamb or bacon or McDonalds get Happy Meals. Good luck with that. You’ve heard of the term herding cats? You can’t train a cat to do anything, whereas a dog can be trained to save lives and... Of course cats can be trained, you imbecile. Mother cats train their kittens when not to use their claws by making a sound of extreme disapproval, a type of fake-spitting, like this, ACK! ACK! That cat should have been declawed. What?! Declawed?! Declawing is mutilation! It’s like cutting your fingers off! It’s illegal in Europe! This isn’t Europe. All cats should be declawed. It would be rough, but for the best. Yes, rough, rough. ACK! ACK!

50th ‘Tillamook Bay Christmas Bird Count’ The annual “Tillamook Bay Christmas Bird Count” will take place on Saturday, Dec. 14. Tillamook Bay counters will join “citizen scientists” across the Western Hemisphere in the National Audubon Society’s 114th Christmas Bird Count. More information on the Christmas Bird Count can be found at birds. Tillamook Bay counters organize at 6:30 a.m. at Denny’s Restaurant, 2230 Main Ave. North (Hwy. 101), in Tillamook. Groups are assigned at that time to various sections of the count to cover the entire count circle. All sections include water and land habitats. At 5 p.m. counters again convene at Denny’s Restaurant to review the results of the day.

This year again there will be no fee to participate in the count. The center of the Tillamook Bay count circle is the intersection of Main Street and Highway 101 in Bay City. The count encompasses all of Tillamook Bay and the northern portion of Netarts Bay as well as the surrounding lands. Over the 49-year history of the count a total of 238 species have been recorded for an average of 130 species each year. The Christmas bird count began over a century ago when scientist Frank Chapman changed the course of ornithological history. In 1900, Chapman led a small group on an alternative to the “side hunt,” when teams competed to see who could shoot the most game. Instead, Chapman pro-

posed they identify, count, and record all the birds they saw, founding what is now considered to be the world’s most significant and longest-running citizenbased conservation effort. Each count is a designated circle 15 miles in diameter — about 177 square miles — where counters try to cover as much ground as

possible within a 24-hour period. The data collected by each count are sent to National Audubon Society. Data from 1900 to the present are entered into a database available through Audubon’s website. For images, videos and more information, visit www.
