would be $78.00.) The rate would likely decline in subsequent years, Baertlein said, if assessed values in the county rose, because what’s being levied is a fixed dollar amount rather than a fixed rate. The only other money measure on the May ballot is likely to be Tillamook School District’s $1 million request that would pay for a list of security and safety improvements at District schools, county clerk Tassi O’Neill told commissioners ear-

BY JOE WRABEK Tillamook County was recognized as having bad roads 20 years ago; they’ve only gotten worse as Federal timber money – the mainstay of road maintenance in most rural Oregon counties – declined and then disappeared. Wednesday evening, the Tillamook County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved placing a $15 million general obligation bond for road repair and improvements on the May 2013 election ballot. The bond issue was recommended by the Sustainable Roads committee, chaired by former TBCC president Jon Carnahan. The county commissioners were meeting in Manzanita – one of their quarterly evening meetings. The committee had recommended arranging for two bond issues, five years apart (in 2013 and 2018), which would allow roughly $1.5 million of the money to be spent every year. The measure on the ballot would authorize both the bonds at the same time. Having two separate bond issues will save money on interest, Carnahan told commissioners. The bond measure would raise property taxes by 39 cents per $1,000 of assessed value in the first year, commissioner Bill Baertlein told the Headlight Herald. (That means the owner of a property with an assessed value of $150,000 would pay $58.50. If it were $200,000, the bill

A legal notice that will appear in the Headlight Herald Wednesday (Feb. 27) will let people know they have until the following Wednesday (March 6) to appeal the ballot title, county chief of staff Paul Levesque said. If appealed, the measure will still appear on the May ballot, he said, but a court, rather than the county, will write the ballot title. The public information campaign between now and May will be important, Carnahan

said. “We have not done a good job of telling the story,” Carnahan told commissioners. “It’s not enough to say ‘you should vote yes,’” he said. The Sustainable Roads Committee is contacting people and organizations that provide services asking for personal anecdotes about how county roads impact their dayto-day lives – firefighters, the hospital, law enforcement, school districts, the post office,

Passing the crown


The controversial amendment to the state’s Territorial Sea Plan by the Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC) is being appealed. Nehalem mayor Shirley Kalkhoven made the announcement at the Tillamook Board of County Commissioners’ Feb. 20 meeting at Manzanita City Hall. LCDC included an area offshore of the Nestucca River as a wave energy development site, number 2 on a list of four; ignoring (opponents charged) extensive public testimony and the recommendations of two advisory committees. “The LCDC decision did not set well,” Kalkhoven told commissioners. David Yamamoto of Pacific City and Charles Ciecko of Neskowin are filing the appeal, Kalkhoven said. Newport attorney David Allen “is doing the work pro bono (for free),” she said. The appeal – to the Oregon Court of Appeals – will be based on procedural grounds, Kalkhoven told commissioners. The appeal will likely be filed in March.

“Kara Rhodes and I started with these kids when they were freshman and we've gone all the way with them,” said class of 2013 advisor Shelley Hurliman. “I remember the first meeting with the parents. We had a great turnout with lots of support and

people who were willing to work.” No one could have predicted at that first meeting four years ago that the class of 2013 would achieve what they have.

The new methane digester at the Port of Tillamook Bay should be complete in 3-4 weeks, and operational in May.

New methane digester will be online in May BY JOE WRABEK

The new methane digester at the Port of Tillamook Bay should be finished in 3-4 weeks, Eric Eckfield told port commissioners. Eckfield is POTB “Owner’s Representative,” in charge of the construction projects being funded

by Federal Emergency Management Agency money.) The generator hasn’t arrived yet, he said; it’s coming from the East Coast, which has been plagued by major snowstorms. By the end of May, “we’ll have good gas and be generating good power,” he said.

For the past 41 years the Tillamook High School class of 1972 has held the school record for winning all four years of the Charity Drive class competition. This year, they proudly pass the baton to the class of 2013 for winning the Charity Drive competition for all four years of high school. In a tradition that’s at least 60 years old, THS classes compete with one another to bring in the most money for Charity Drive. Generally, as the classes get older, they get more focused and competitive; it’s is unusual for a freshman class to win the competition. It is exponentially more rare for a class to win every year for all four years; in fact it hasn’t been done since 1972. The class of 1972 remains proud of their accomplishment, 41 years later. “We didn’t bring in anything like the amount of money they bring in now,” said Lori Carpenter, class of 1972. “It is

incredible, how much money the kids make for Charity Drive. When we were doing it, it was still a March of Dimes fundraiser, our senior class brought in $1,900, and we thought that was a lot.” $1,900 in 1972 is the equivalent of $10,550 in 2013. But the parameters of the fundrais-

er were different. “The rules were that we did the work completely by ourselves. Our parents couldn’t help us, they weren’t involved at all. We were always very proud of that. And we couldn’t accept donations. We had to provide

It hasn’t been determined whether Tillamook PUD will be purchasing the new digester’s megawatt of electricity, or whether POTB will be “wheeling” it to another utility, port manager Michele Bradley advised the Headlight Herald. “PUD has not stated they do not want the power,” she said. However, they don’t want to pay what they’re paying for electricity from the port’s older digester. They are reportedly willing to pay “avoided costs” (the cost of purchasing power from BPA). “We are still doing the analysis of revenue vs. fees,” she said. POTB would have to pay to “wheel” the power to another utility. “It’s a lot tougher than just selling it (the power) to the PUD,” Young commented. “We’re in competition with BPA in this area,” commissioner Bob Olsen complained. “No one mentions that.” Tillamook PUD is buying the power from the port’s older digester, which produces less than half as much electricity as the new one will. It’s the port’s responsibility to provide the manure, which is coming from approximately 8,000 cows on eight farms. Unlike the Farm Power digesters, where the manure is piped in, manure for the port’s digester has to be delivered by truck. It takes a minimum of 4,000 cows to supply enough “product” to run the digester, Eckfield said. On a 2-1 vote, Port of Tillamook Bay commissioners approved renewal of Richard Patten’s lease of a portion of S. Miller St. in Rockaway Beach. Miller, not actually a street, is part of the right-of-way of the Port of Tillamook Bay Railroad. Businesses along Miller are leasing portions of the “street” in front of their buildings. Patten’s leased space is about 50 feet long and stretches 7 feet out from the curb, port manager Michele Bradley told the Headlight Herald. Patten “has created a little stir,” Bradley advised commissioners. “He’s put up barricades in his space.” The barricades don’t impede traffic, Bradley said; she showed commissioners photos of a garbage truck driving down the street – with plenty of clearance as it passed Patten’s barricades. Port commissioner Bob Olsen objected to the cost -- $40 a year. “It costs $46 to record,” he said. “I don’t think $40 is enough for anything legal.” It’s not paying the cost of administration, he said. “Most of our railroad encroachments are not recorded,” Bradley advised, “and should be.” POTB commissioners approved at the same time renewal of a lease to Connie Mackrill, who Bradley said was Patten’s neighbor. Approval of the leases passed with commissioners Carolyn Decker and Jim Young voting in favor, and Olsen voting no. (New POTB commissioner Jack Mulder was out of town, and Georgine Beveridge, who was chairing the meeting, can’t vote.) Port commissioners also approved an agreement with Tillamook PUD to relocate a power pole close to the port’s administration building. The new parapet on top of the building reduced clearance between the building and power line below safety standards, POTB project coordinator Aaron Palter said, making it necessary to relocate the pole. “The PUD will charge us for placing the pole,” he said. “It’s a FEMA cost,” he said – meaning the money would come from funds received from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Young questioned whether the PUD had an easement for their power line. “Let’s charge them an equivalent amount for an easement,” he suggested. Palter said he had managed to get the PUD’s standard-form contract modified. As originally written, the PUD had the right to remove “any man-made obstacles,” Palter said. The pole, he said, is in the port’s parking lot. With the various construction projects using FEMA funds, “We’re still holding at 53% of FEMA money committed,” Eric Eckfield told commissioners, “same as last month.” Road paving is “dormant” until June, he said, and water line work until April or May – and work on the port’s administration building is “winding down,” he said. Work on the airport business park should be completed in mid-March. The port is still waiting on a final decision from FEMA headquarters on the port’s appeal of the Southern Flow Corridor Project, which FEMA had denied at both the local and regional level, Bradley told commissioners. “Wyden and Merkley and Schrader’s offices are still calling,” she said. “As we wait for a decision, we are pushing harder against our ability to take advantage of the coming construction season,” Eckfield added. “Some 2013 proj-

ects may get extended into 2014.” In other business, Bradley advised commissioners it was necessary to appoint new representatives to the Northwest ACT, which deals with transportation issues and funding, and the Oregon Tillamook Railroad Authority (OTRA), which oversees the non-functional POTB Railroad. Former port commissioner Bill Baertlein had been the port’s representative on both boards. Commissioners appointed Jim Young to the ACT, which is meeting March 14, and held off appointing anyone to OTRA (“I don’t have an OTRA meeting scheduled any time soon,” Bradley advised). And now that the port commission has five members again, it’s necessary to elect a new president, Bradley told commissioners.

services that people paid for.” Carpenter and her friend and classmate Debbie Reeves remember “mostly carwashes and bake sales and scrap metal. Oh my gosh, we baked and baked and baked. And back then you’d sell a couple of cookies for a quarter,” said Reeves. “We washed a lot of cars,” said Carpenter. “People paid us a dollar. We thought we were making big bucks when we washed log trucks for $10. Who would wash log trucks? That’s insane. And our class advisors were sticklers that if we did something, we had to do it right, so we had quality control for car washes. If they weren’t perfectly clean they got washed again. Basically we learned hard work and integrity.” The class of 1972 also

developed a heart for service. “We talked about it at our 40th class reunion,” said Carpenter. “We talked about how many of our class are educators, doctors, nurses, emergency responders, in law enforcement, in public service, business owners, politicians, as a class we’ve really touched the world through acts of service.” It boosted their selfesteem as a class, to have accomplished something big together, and to have done it on their own steam. “I think it made a big impression on us. Our class has been pretty successful, and I think that started in high school, with us believing that we could accomplish whatever we set our minds to.” Holding the Charity Drive

record for four years also bonded them as a class. “We have remained very close,” said Reeves. “”There are 50 or 60 of us who come to every reunion, wouldn’t miss one. We have a lot of fun together. We have people who want to come to our reunions who weren’t in our class, because we have so much fun,” said Reeves, who organizes the reunions. “Things have changed so much in forty years, it’s incredible,” said Carpenter. “Things were a lot simpler then. “Gas cost .36 cents a gallon, a loaf of bread was a quarter and a call at a pay phone was a dime.” “Kids nowadays probably don’t even know what a pay phone is,” said Reeves. “A booth that you stand in and pull the doors shut behind

you to make a call...and sometimes all your friends tried to cram in there with you,” the two friends laughed. In 1972 there were no cell phones, the VW Beetle was the most popular car and it had a price tag of $1,500. HBO launched the first cable service and Atari released the first ever video game: ‘Pong.’ “I can barely wrap my mind around how much money the kids bring in for Charity Drive now,” said Carpenter. “$77,000 is unbelievable. But what remains with me is how hard our class worked. We were proud of doing it and we were proud of holding the record for 41 years.”

At their Feb. 20 meeting, county commissioners also voted to renew for another two years an option to purchase property owned by Diamond F Inc. The property, located in the Southern Flow Corridor, was originally optioned by the county two years ago, Levesque told commissioners, but purchase has been delayed by the Federal Emergency Management

Agency (FEMA) denying funds for the project, first at the local and then at regional levels. “We may have a decision by next Wednesday� from FEMA headquarters in Washington, D.C., said county Chief of Staff Paul Levesque. In other business, county commissioners approved an intergovernmental agreement with Oregon Fish & Wildlife

that would provide another $7,000 toward the Southern Flow Corridor Project; renewed a lease with North Coast Storage for storage of old county records, some furniture, and an aluminum boat used by the county surveyor; and approved a grant application to Tillamook PUD to install electric service at 6-7 tent sites in Barview County Park.

The Tillamook High School Class of 2013 celebrates raising the most money at Charity Drive for the fourth year in a row.

CHARITY: But, Hurliman says that a group decision led them to achieve record-breaking results. “We decided our very first year that if we were going to do something, we were going to do it with excellence,� Hurliman said. “The parents told me that this particular group of kids were good workers and go-getters, but I didn't know until I saw it. They really are!� The class of 2013 has a wide variety of of strengths and skills, and each member of the class has certain things they contribute to make the group better as a whole, be it an interest in steelhead fishing, the ability to cook or the know-how to take apart machinery to get the valuable metal it's made of. Plus, this particular group of kids has a very team-oriented mentality and every player on that team is happy to do what they can if it helps the whole group. “We run our class Charity Drive like a business,� Hurliman said. “We split the into committees and delegate responsibilities to different people. Once everyone knows their role, the kids put their minds to it and they and they do what they set out to do.� To get as much production and benefit out of each Charity Drive event there was one thing

the class of 2013 knew they had to make sure they did right. “We made sure we had good food and lots of it,� Hurliman said. “It's something this class has become known for. “We also have always made sure we had quality activities that people really wanted to come watch." Besides the main Charity Drive events, there are also some specific things this particular class excels at that add significant amounts of money to their total. “We have a crew of boys who are very good workers and they absolutely rock at collecting scrap metal,� Hurliman said. “All the money we raise comes from every part of the team. It all adds up and everyone knows that, so they are all happy to fill their roles.� The total amount taken in for 2013 Charity Drive was $211,220.57 with the seniors bringing in $77,127.18 or about 36.5 percent of the total. The sophomores brought in $53,942.22 for second place; freshmen came in third with $49,152.99; followed by juniors with $30,998.18. While Hurliman and Rhodes

have been enthusiastic advisors for the class, there are a lot of students within the class who have stepped up to take Charity Drive leadership roles. “We have an awesome group of student chairs,� Hurliman explained. “Emily Schwend, Logan Schieno and Kennady Johnson have all done a great job. As juniors, Hailey Travis and Autumn Josi have been a huge help too.� The stated goal of Charity Drive is to raise money for Doernbecher Children's Hospital, local non-profits, and a THS scholarship fund. Beyond the financial accomplishment, Charity Drive builds character and teaches skills that will be important for the students later in life, including giving kids a chance to take the bull by the horns. “As the class advisors, we've been giving the kids more and more responsibility so they can run events completely on their own,� Hurliman said. “This is an awesome group of students. They are the reason we have been successful. We have a ton of participation from the whole class and they see everything through from the beginning to the end.�

Wave energy

The sea plan and the role of the Tillamook PUD

BY REPRESENTATIVE DAVID GOMBERG Wave Energy. The words alone stimulate our imagination. They conjure up images of futuristic technologies, new industries, jobs and a limitless supply of renewable power. Of course anytime we consider major new projects along our Oregon Coastline, we need to move cautiously. Study and research is a good thing, but we want to know- will this new technology work? What will it cost or what kinds of subsidies will be necessary? What happens to these huge machines when we are done with them?? For these reasons and more, I was pleased with the announcement earlier this year that the Pacific Marine Energy Center (PMEC) will be sited off of Newport. This is a study and testing zone of limited size which will strive to answer many of our questions. The siting was supported by city and county leadership, the fishing community and by local business organizations. I supported it as well, seeing PMEC as an excellent extension of the local research cluster at Yaquina Bay including the Hatfield Marine Science Center, NOAA and the Ocean Observatories Initiative. As pleased as I was with the PMEC announcement, I was hugely disappointed days later with decisions to place one of the actual wave generation zones off the coast of Southern Tillamook County. Two volunteer advisory boards have spent the past three years developing proposals. They held informational meetings and public hearings. They negotiated, compromised and eventually developed a consistent plan. The Territorial Sea Plan Advisory Committee is a working group formed by the Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC) to make recommendations regarding the impact of wave energy sites along the Oregon Coast. TSPAC ranked Nestucca 6th out of 8 sites ranked. Oregon's Ocean Planning Advisory Council (OPAC) is a legislatively mandated marine policy advisory body to the Governor. OPAC recommended three sites while at the same time voting to remove the Nestucca site from further consideration. But LCDC approved four sites with Nestucca as the second. And they gave no explanation at all for disregarding literally thousands of hours of community conversation and consensus. Whenever we consider new opportunities, we have to bal-

ance them against any effects on existing industries, communities and traditions. New jobs are good, but not if they replace or harm existing jobs. The Nestucca wave energy site includes the major fall/winter fishing and crabbing grounds of the historic Pacific City Dory Fleet. The dories have been plying the waters off of Pacific City for over 100 years. Being small boats, they have limited range and cannot be safely diverted to other fishing grounds. I had written previously to oppose the Nestucca site. In fact, many letters of opposition were submitted to LCDC from the Tillamook County Commission, Lincoln County Commission, Oregon People's Utility District Association, Pacific City-Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce, Pacific CityWoods Community Planning Advisory Committee, Neskowin Citizen's Planning Advisory Committee, Fishermen's Advisory Committee Tillamook and the Pacific City Dorymens' Association. Oregon has a long tradition of public participation in the decision-making process. Yet, as I said previously, I am seriously disappointed that the recommendations of formal advisory groups and local communities were not considered in this site selection process. I have now begun meeting with the Coastal Caucus - an influential group of legislators representing districts along the Oregon Coast. We are continuing to review legislative and administrative alternatives to the LCDC decision. In addition, I am having conversations with the Governor’s office about the issue and have been assured a clearer explanation of the decision will be forthcoming. Meanwhile, let's be clear that wave energy devices are not going into the water off the Coast of Tillamook County yet. That date is far off, and the results of research from the PMEC site may determine if such a time will ever come. Even so, we need clear answers to why OPAC and TSPAC recommendations were not addressed by LCDC. Failure to do so undermines confidence and cooperation with government. Finally, we need to ensure that if wave energy does come to Tillamook County it addresses fishing, crabbing and view shed issues.

BY DOUG OLSON Now that the State of Oregon, through its Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC), has identified a site in the ocean near Pacific City and Neskowin as a possible location for ocean energy, the next questions are why is this happening and what is the role of the Tillamook People’s

Utility District (TPUD)? Leaving aside the disgraceful “public” process used to select possible sites in the open sea for electric energy, the process is complete and a site between the mouth of the Nestucca River and Neskowin is now the number two site on the Oregon coast proposed for ocean energy testing and possible placement. The first is a


location just off Camp Rilea in northern Clatsop County which is proposed as a backup energy site for military needs. The process to update Oregon’s Territorial Sea Plan began over four years ago under an agreement with the federal government to identify potential sites for ocean energy generation. Two separate citizen groups met dozens of times

by Dave Coverly

in many locations with literally thousands of people. The Territorial Sea Plan is in essence a zoning of the sea. In order to preserve state control rather than federal control, the planning process moved forward under the agreement with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

our information. Thank you!

Concerning the Tillamook to Oceanside 115KV transmission line, I contacted Bob White of Tillamook PUD a couple of months ago about approximate location for a pole on our property. His response was simply ‘just inside your property line.’ Not satisfied I called and asked him to come out to our property and show us roughly where the pole might be. On Feb. 15 Mr. White and an engineer showed up. Still, his only response was just inside the property line. Basically this was a wasted trip out here to show me nothing. After thinking about this a little more I finally realized that my property line has nothing to do with this. ODOT right of way is the determining factor of where this pole will go. PUD wants the poles on private property just outside the ODOT right of way. Any widening of Hwy 131 in the future will put the expense on ODOT. This is the information that was given to us by PUD. After talking with ODOT, we found the right of way is 35 ft from the centerline of the road. This will put the pole a very short distance from our house. From the creed on the back of the Ruralite magazine,the one that reads ‘Cooperation and open communication among customers, board of directors, management and employees of PUD.’ In the future I hope they can be more straightforward with their customers.

Dear Headlight Herald Readers, My name is Logan and I am a sixth grader at Faith Christian School in Kearney, Nebraska. My class is studying the 50 states and I have chosen Oregon as my state. Our assignment is to find out as much about our states as we can and I was wondering if you would help me out. Would you please send me any information you can about your state? Some examples could be maps, brochures, souvenirs, or anything else that would be helpful. We will be having a state fair at the end of the year to display all

What a disgrace The A-4 Navy aircraft on Hwy 101 for the Air Museum. What a disgrace to the Military and Navy. It's so green and moldy and the insignias are all most worn off. I think the Navy should take the once proud aircraft back and scrap it so it can come back as something useful instead of an eyesore. But this is Tillamook County for you. Get some money and do a project with no money to maintain or repair it. You’re doing a great job County Commissioners, keep up the good work (pun intended). Now I suppose we will have to float a bond to pay for it to be cleaned and painted.

“An important part of our small town” When the Tillamook P.U.D., Tillamook City Council and the Tillamook County Commissioners consider their decisions regarding the proposed Tillamook P.U.D. 115kV transmission line route down Front Street of Tillamook, we hope that the decision made goes by the mission statement professed by the Tillamook P.U.D. It reads: “Tillamook People’s Utility District is dedicated to delivering the best value of electric services, while continuing our commitment to the customers and communities we serve. CREED: We shall work together to: Provide exceptional customer service; anticipate and strive to exceed our customers’ needs; Provide high-quality and cost-effective services to our customers; Assure a safe electrical system and working environment for our customers and employees; Operate a financially-stable business; Encourage cooperation and open communication among the customers, Board of Directors, management and employees of Tillamook PUD; Support all the com-

munities we serve; and Be environmentally responsible.” When ODOT starts their proposed project, our town will be changed forever. On top of that, we have the P.U.D. considering more invasiveness to an important industrial part of our small town.

Helpers in the community I am writing this letter to share my experiences since moving back to Tillamook after living 38 years in a much larger area. I came back in May 2010. I bought a house and had a big list of changes I wanted made. I found the most amazing men in our community: Keith Thompson, for painting, drywall and counters; Jimmy Coons for flooring and carpet; Jeff Naegeli for plumbing; John and Matt from Angus Electric; Terry Phillips for a huge and beautiful landscaping project. I was able to get 99 percent of everything I needed at Rosenberg's. These men are selfemployed. They will work 10 hour days, evenings and weekends. They are timely, honest and perfectionists. They employ skilled people that add to our community. Over the last couple of years I have had more projects done and always been

pleased with their work. They take pride in their work and take that extra step. I'm very thankful to have found them. I'm sure there are many more local skilled craft people here. I encourage everyone to use our local resources for your projects. You will not be disappointed.

Lines should go underground I was delighted to read last weeks editorial "Let's put it underground." At the February meeting of the PUD Board of Directors, they voted to accept the staffs' suggested route for their new high voltage power line which will cross Tillamook's Front Street, follow Hwy. 131 to Tomlinson Road and place the poles and high voltage wires through our cow pasture within 50 feet of our home. These large high voltage wires could cross in front of our main view window, making our present, very pleasant and attractive view into an industrial area. We told the PUD staff when they came to our house that there was not enough money in the world for us to consent to that. However, if they were run underground, there would be no problem. PUD replied that they could not do that for the short distance for us unless they did it for the whole line through Tillamook. If this line is really necessary, that is what should be done. If the cost is more for underground placement of wires, all certainly should pay; not just those of us who would lose the value of our property and lifestyle.

That process was driven by the need for Oregon to control use of the sea for the first three nautical miles outward under state jurisdiction. Also driving the process is a state mandate for increased renewable energy and recognition that the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) cannot economically provide additional power in some cases. The federal hydro system on the Columbia River system, which supplies power to nearly all consumer owned utilities including TPUD, is at capacity during certain times of the year. It’s very unlikely additional dams will be built. Wind energy, while significant, cannot meet all future growth because it is operational only about 30 percent of the time when the wind blows. Hydro or other sources are needed as backup when the wind subsides. Oregon’s recently released energy plan specifies that all future electrical load growth will be met with a combination of conservation or renewable energy. That, of course, means wind, wave, tidal, solar, geothermal and other renewable sources. Excluded are coal and natural gas generation plants. In addition, hydro is not classified as renewable. It’s important to note that nearly all renewable energy today exists only because of significant federal or state subsidies. For example, the

Continued from Page A4

numerous windmills east of the Cascades contribute about 7000 megawatts of energy to the BPA system. That’s the equivalent of six Bonneville dams. But the federal subsidy to those generators is $.022 per kilowatt hour or about $425 million per year. Then there are some state and local subsidies or incentives as well. Most renewable energy business models are built around federal and state subsidies, not the commercial sale of power. Solyndra comes to mind. If an ocean energy developer proposes to place a device in the sea off the coast of Oregon, that developer will be required to obtain various permits and submit environmental impact data. It most certainly will be a long, difficult and quite expensive process, with no guarantee of success. The developer will also need to find his own market for electricity. Tillamook PUD is not required to purchase any power unless the cost is equal to PUD’s current avoided cost, which is the wholesale cost from BPA, about $.035 per kilowatt hour currently. That’s a federal administrative rule, which, of course, could be modified in the future. It’s extremely doubtful that any ocean energy producer can profitably sell electricity on a commercial scale at that cost, even with substantial subsidies. If the developer finds a

willing buyer elsewhere, the developer can connect to the western grid through a Tillamook PUD substation. All costs, including engineering, design, construction, transmission lines, permits and more will be the entire responsibility of the developer. Tillamook PUD can and will charge the developer all direct and indirect costs associated with connecting ocean energy to its market. In addition, Tillamook PUD will collect “wheeling” fees over time as the power moves across the Tillamook PUD system. One of the larger issues in the energy business today is who should pay the costs of enlarging or strengthening the electric grid. Current practice is for ratepayers who benefit from an improvement to pay through the rate structure. The other school of thought is for all citizens (taxpayers) to pay some or all costs through various subsidies determined by our policy makers in Salem and Washington D.C. Currently Senate Bill 354 is before the Oregon Legislature. It would provide $25 million in general obligation bonding authority for the state to use in subsidizing transmission requirements for producers of ocean energy. That’s a good

example of spreading the cost of renewable energy to all Oregon taxpayers, not just ratepayers who may benefit from a particular project. Agree or disagree, that’s where our current elected officials are heading. The ocean does indeed contain enormous amounts of energy. Many companies are designing various devices to harness this renewable, clean and plentiful energy. There has been some success in waters off Europe. Testing is currently underway just off Reedsport. Whether something on a commercial scale can be viable in the waters off the Oregon coast remains to be seen. And it’s not likely to occur for a number of years. But the electrical energy business operates on a very long planning horizon. It is the intent of your consumer owned Tillamook PUD that if and when any ocean power seeks to come ashore in our territory, there will be no cost or impact to our ratepayers. Olson is the president of the Tillamook PUD Board of Directors and the past president of the Oregon PUD Association. He represents South Tillamook County on the PUD Board and lives in Pacific City.

The Silverspot Butterfly of Mount Hebo BY MELONIE FERGUSON

The last stable population of the endangered Silverspot butterfly in the world lives here in Tillamook County, on our own Mount Hebo. An audience numbering more than fifty from as far away as Eugene gathered at The Pelican Pub and Brewery in Pacific City on February 19 for a presentation on the Silverspot butterfly. The event, scheduled to coincide with the regular meeting of the Nestucca Watersheds Council, was a joint effort between the Council and Hebo Stewardship Group for community education and outreach. According to presenters Anne Walker and Michelle Dragoo, scientists observed the first dangerous decrease in population for Silverspot butterfly after an especially wet, cold spring in 1993. The Silverspot could once be found all along the Pacific coast from northern California clear into central Washington. Today there are only five known colonies of the endangered insect, and the only stable population lives on Mount Hebo. Less stable colonies survive at Cascade Head, Lake Earl, Ray’s Point, and Rock Creek. A PowerPoint presentation illustrated the life cycle of the Silverspot. They hatch from tiny yellow eggs that winter under plant debris in native coastal meadows. Newly hatched caterpillars start out smaller than the letters imprinted on a penny. At this stage,

(like the Monarch and milkweed) the Silverspot depends on a single species of plant to survive. They feed exclusively on a wildflower, the Early Blue Violet (Viola adunca.) Coastal residents who want to support the survival of the Silverspot can plant the native violets, or the plants it needs as a butterfly, Dragoo suggested. “One caterpillar can feed on more than two hundred violet leaves over the course of a spring,” she told the group. After the caterpillars transform through their life cycle into butterflies, their diet requires nectar plants. Four native species support them: Aster, Golden Rod, Pearly Everlasting, and Yarrow. Besides plant-

ings to support the butterflies, community members who’d like to help the plight of the Silverspot may volunteer to assist with maintenance at the Cascade Head site. Contact Watersheds Council Coordinator Alex Sifford, 503-965-2200 to get started. “We really appreciate board member Stephanie Starostka Welch arranging the evening’s event with The Pelican Pub,” Council Coordinator Alex Sifford told the crowd earlier in the evening. “Pelican Pub has gone so far as to craft and name an ale to benefit the endangered specie, The Silverspot IPA, and it’s delicious!” he quipped. As the audience sipped and

snacked, Jane Booth, who is Hebo Stewardship Group’s Facilitator, explained the group’s makeup and purpose and invited community involvement. The Hebo Stewardship Group includes folks with a stake in local natural resources including Cascade Pacific Resource Conservation and Development, Hebo Ranger District, Nestucca Watersheds Council, Oregon Wild, The Siletz Tribe, Tillamook Soil and Water Conservation District, United States Department of Fish and Wildlife, and local business people and residents. They meet monthly at 3:00 p.m. on the second Thursday, rotating between Driftwood Library in Lincoln City and the Pelican Pub in Pacific City. March 14 the meeting will be in Lincoln City; all are welcome. The regular meeting of the Neskowin Nestucca Watersheds Council (NNWC) had kicked off the evening. Highlights include news that thrifty habits will allow for publication mailing of “The Flow,” the NNWC newsletter to postal patrons in the watershed. Upcoming council projects include restoration work on Butte Creek, Farmer Creek, and George Creek and a Bay cleanup scheduled from 8:30noon on Saturday, April 20. Community volunteers will gather at Bob Straub Park for assignments to clean up Nestucca Bay and the vicinity; everyone is invited.

Supporters sponsor Freedom to Marry initiative When Tillamook County Citizens for Human Dignity and Basic Rights Oregon hosted a happy hour on Valentine’s Day, nearly 50 people attended and signed sponsorship petitions to advance a Freedom to Marry initiative. They joined thousands of people across Oregon who attended 17 similar events on February 14 to sign the petition prepared by Oregon United for Marriage and to become leaders in this important effort to ensure all loving and committed couples can marry. Tillamook City Council member, John Sandusky, spoke to the issue of marriage equality and said he would “share the message and look for support from the City Council, the college, and his congregation.� Though some clergy and faith leaders currently bless same-sex unions, Oregon United for Marriage’s ballot measure includes clear religious protections. Civil marriage for gay couples does not affect religious marriages, religious institutions

or clergy in any way. No religion would be forced to marry same-sex couples, or recognize same-sex marriages within the context of their religious beliefs. At a Portland event, former Governor Barbara Roberts said, “As more and more people come to understand that committed couples, whether they are gay or straight, hope to marry for similar reasons, they’re coming to realize that this is much more than a political issue. This is about love, commitment and family.� Tillamook County Citizens for Human Dignity (TCCHD) will join with Basic Rights Oregon and Oregon United for Marriage to qualify the “Freedom to Marry and Religious Protection Initiative� for the November 2014 election. TCCHD meets every second Tuesday for potluck and conversation from 6-8 p.m. at the Tillamook County Library, 1716 Third Street.

Martine arraigned for hindering prosecution BY JOE WRABEK

Thomas R. Martine, a member of the Rockaway Beach City Council, was arraigned in Tillamook County Circuit Court Monday, Feb. 25. Martine is charged with hindering prosecution and tampering with physical evidence in connection with the case against former Rockaway Beach police officer Aaron Clark. Clark, arrested back in August 2011 on charges of using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct and encouraging child sex abuse,

pleaded guilty March 26, 2012 to a lesser charge of hindering prosecution and tampering with physical evidence. Martine is THOMAS alleged to MARTINE have unlawfully concealed and destroyed an electronic device, described as “physical evidence which might have aided in the apprehension of Benjamin Aaron Clark.�

New Tillamook Jr. High Speech Team competes in Eugene The newly formed Tillamook Junior High speech and debate team went to Eugene to compete at its first tournament February 22, 2013. Marcine Jenck (teacher at Tillamook Junior High) and Brett Hurliman accompanied them. The team is the Senior Project for Luke Haenggi, under the supervision of Bryan Marvis. Ryland Pampush took first place in Radio, and Sage Bailey took fifth in Prose. Tillamook High School’s speech and debate team also went to Eugene; Taylor Kittell, Steve Dutton, Brett Hurliman, and Rose Wilson went with the team. “This was one of the largest tournaments in Oregon, and included competitors from as far away as Oakland, California,� Hurliman said. Standout individual speakers were Mackenzi Cook, who took third place in Dramatic Interpretation and finalist in Poetry, and Nick Wilson, who was a finalist in Radio. “We had several of our debate teams finish the weekend 3-3,� Hurliman said. “While good against this kind of competition, it’s not good enough to advance at this tournament.� March 16 will see Tillam-

ook hosting this year's District Speech and Debate Tournament. Local folks are still needed to help with judging the “speechies,� Hurliman said. “The nice thing about having District in Tillamook is the travel time is so much less for all three of the local schools.� The District Tournament will determine which students go to the statewide tournament at Western Oregon University in Monmouth later in the spring. Neah-Kah-Nie, Tillamook, and Nestucca speech teams tend to place high in these tournaments, despite their schools’ small size.

At the arraignment, Martine was represented by attorney Thomas O’Neil from Salem. Clatsop County district attorney Joshua Marquis, who is prosecuting the case, “appeared� by phone from Astoria. Judge Jonathan R. Hill scheduled a pre-trial conference for April 1 at 9 a.m. Hill himself won’t be there: “The next appearance will be with Judge Roll,� he said. The pre-trial conference will take place in Courtroom 102 (the large one) in the county courthouse. Martine remains free on bail, subject to a number of

conditions. Defense attorney O’Neil objected to one that prohibited Martine from having contact with Jessica Johnson; “That’s his daughter,� O’Neil said. (Martine is also prohibited from having contact with Connie Mackrill, Ashley Mackrill, Frieda Farr, and convicted police officer Aaron Clark.) O’Neil also objected to a condition that prohibited Martine from possessing a police scanner. “My client is on the volunteer fire department in Rockaway,� he noted. Marquis, the prosecutor, agreed to removal of both conditions.

the Wave bus service, and individuals and companies that use the roads on a daily basis. “Our intent is to do a better job,� Carnahan said. Commissioners also unanimously approved a resolution “declaring intent to seek additional funds� for repair and maintenance of county roads. The resolution asks the Economic Development Council (EDC) to bring county commissioners a recommendation “that would fairly tax tourists and visitors to Tillamook County and would provide approximately $500,000 per year,� the “visitor’s share� of the county road sustainability program, the resolution said. “Everybody agreed we have a responsibility (for the roads),� Carnahan said, “but we aren’t the only ones who use the roads. Everyone feels we should look for another resource,� he said. “We initially looked at a tran-

sient occupancy tax,� Carnahan said. Most of the cities have one, “but there’s a large unincorporated area of Tillamook County where people stay.� A seasonal sales tax or a food and beverage tax have also been discussed, he said. Sustainable Roads was asking that the Economic Development Council “vet� all the proposals, Carnahan said. “There are as many ideas as people we talked to,� he said. “I think everyone’s aware that timber revenues in all Oregon counties have disappeared,� Carnahan told commissioners. Thanks to the loss of Federal timber monies, which were dedicated to roads, Tillamook County’s road department budget – and number of employees – have declined by more than 50%, he noted. “You are seeing counties begin to fail,� he said. “We could be in that position in 5 to 10 years.�

The Tillamook City Council’s hearing on the appeal of Tillamook PUD’s proposed transmission line will take place Tuesday, March 5 at 5:30 p.m. in the city council chambers, Tillamook City Hall. The transmission line is intended to run from the PUD’s substation east of Tillamook, west along POTB right-of-way, then overhead on Front St. to the city limits, and continuing west towards Oceanside. The route required conditional-use approval by the Tillamook Planning Commission, which was granted after a planning commission hearing Jan. 3. The planning commis-


sion’s decision was appealed Jan. 17 by Dennis Johnson and Don Aufdermauer, two landowners along the route. The city council’s hearing will be “on the record,� meaning that no new testimony will be permitted. The PUD also has to get conditional use approval from Tillamook County for the 5.9 miles of the transmission line that will be outside the Tillamook city limits. An application has reportedly been filed with the Tillamook County Community Development Department, but no hearing had been scheduled yet as the Headlight Herald went to press.

Trophy just out of reach for Tillamook



Out of fuel for the fire


Tillamook’s boys basketball team came on stong with a late playoff surge, but three games in five days knocked the life from their legs.

Headlight Herald Sports

“It was a grinder against Banks,” Werner said. “The kids showed great resolve and I thought they played with great determination. That game was a free-forall!” With the win at Banks, Tillamook was thrust into a tie for the last playoff spot with Seaside, and due to the game bing a playoff tie, the game was played at a neutral site at Neah-Kah-Nie High School on Feb. 18.

Hour and hours of sweating and working in a pungent room full of other perspiring high school wrestlers striving for the same goal finally came to fruition on Feb. 22-23. Tillamook’s 17 qualified wrestlers headed to the Memorial Coliseum in Portland to take on the rest of the top wrestlers in the state at Oregon's 4A State wrestling meet. Tillamook's qualified wrestlers entered in the tournament were: Justin Coon at 106; Austin Werner at 113; Anthony Imel at 120; Logan Weeks at 132; Kody Prulhiere at 132; Jake Fowler at 138; Drew Owens at 138; Ronald Allen at 152; Micha Kawano at 152; Jonas Ayala-Sanchez at 160; Myron More at 170; Billy Prince at 170; Jordan Thompson at 182; Rafael Gomez at 195; Marcus Cheney at 220; Jose Santiago at 285; Dylan Jackman at 285; and Tya Tharp in the women's division. With those numbers, Tillamook had a realistic chance of achieving their goal of finishing in at least fourth place and being a trophy team. Sadly, Tillamook came up just short of the goal head coach Lonnie Eggert knew they were capable of achieving. if all his individuals wrestled as well at they have in the past. Instead Tillamook finished in fifth place behind champion Crook County, Henley, Sweet Home and Cascade. “It's a little disappointing not to have the trophy to take home, but I'm not disappointed with my team,” Eggert said. “Being a top five team in the entire state is awesome.”

The Tillamook boys basketball team had a preseason to forget. They were 3-8 in their first eleven games before the Cowapa League got underway. Many of those losses were by narrow margins against very good teams and Tillamook head coach Greg Werner expressed over and over that his team was preparing for a tough Cowapa League and he wasn't overly concerned with his non-league record. All he cared about was his team getting better and trying to peak at the right time of the season. That seemed a little lofty when the Cheesemakers were an unimpressive 3-2 in the first half of league play. But, just like Werner had hoped for, his team turned it on towards the end of the season. They won their last three league games and forced a playoff game for third place in the league. A game in which they also won before eventually falling to Astoria by a single point to end their season. “We had a very tough schedule this season, but I'm not making excuses,” said Tillamook head coach Greg Werner. “We played hard and we got hot at the end. It was a good way to send out the seniors. “We'd loved to have made a playoff game in Corvallis but it is what it is. We gave a valiant effort and these kids gave everything they had to the program.” Tillamook's hot streak to end the season started back on Feb. 8 when they hosted Yamhill-Carlton and put up

79 points against the Tigers. “Jacob Hurliman was a big part of that win against Y.C., but we got a good game from a lot of players and ended up with three guys getting double-doubles,” Werner said. Hurliman led the Cheesemakers with a monster 32 point and 17 rebound game, but he wasn't the only standout that night. Joey Hancock had a great game at the point and ended with 15 points of his own and 10 rebounds while David Waud added 11 points and 10 rebounds. “Being healthy and being able to defend and run was the key for us,” Werner explained. “Up until the Y.C. game, we hadn't been doing that and we weren't in rhythm. Everything started with our defense and rebounding. If we play good defense, we get rebounds and we can run.” With Tillamook dispatching Y.C., they were hosting Astoria four days later on Tillamook's senior night with a legit shot at a playoff spot. “They tried to press us and we had very few

turnovers,” Werner said about Tillamook's game against Astoria. “Because we didn't have many turnovers, we capitalized on fastbreak points.” In Tillamook's first game against each other, Astoria's Jeramy Poyer and his teammate Nick Strange both had 18 points. This time Tillamook held Astoria's best two players to just 14 points and 9 points. “We didn't put Strange to the line as many times as we did the first time,” Werner explained. “We also got some lock down defense on him from Nate McRae.” Tillamook's scoring came from a variety of players including 14 from Hancock, 12 from Waud, 15 from Hurliman and eight from McRae. When it was all said and done, McRae finished off the game with a breakaway dunk that capped off a 61-45 win for Tillamook and jacked their momentum through the roof going into to their next game at Banks. “If we lost to Banks, we knew we were out,” Werner said. “Our playoffs started that night.”

Tillamook's game against Banks was far from pretty. Both teams were slugging it out from the beginning to the end. Tillamook led by one at half and it came right down to the very last second before it was decided. Hurliman grabbed a rebound and got the put back to fall giving Tillamook a one point lead with a second left to play. They managed to hang on and keep their season alive with a 47-46, win.

Of the 17 wrestlers entered, Tillamook had 11 qualify for the second day of the tournament. In fact, Tillamook wrestled so well on day one they were sitting in fourth place ahead of Cascade at the end of the day. On day two, Cascade had four wrestlers make it to the finals and Tillamook didn't have any. That gave Cascade the extra points they needed at the end to get past the Cheesemakers for the last trophy spot. There's no question Tillamook had the potential to do even better than they did, but a few close losses and a some poorly timed injuries didn't go the Cheesemakers way. One of the main mishaps was the loss of Jake Fowler's ability to be full strength less than two weeks before the meet. “Jake getting hurt didn't help us, but I'm not making excuses,” Eggert said. “It's the state tournament and there's always going to be some disappointments and injuries are going to happen. If you don't have any injuries, you're going to be a bottom of the barrel team because the kids aren't working hard enough in practice.” Fowler's dislocated elbow last week only slowed him down, but couldn't stop him. He still managed to win a match and districts last week and his opening match at state with his arm heavily bandaged this week, but couldn't get as far as he would have prior to the injury. “I have to give Jake (Fowler) a lot of credit,” Eggert said. “He wrestled a Cascade

kid who'd beat him before really well with one arm,” “ When a meet is over you can always go back and think about where you should have scored a few more points, but it doesn't help,” Just because Tillamook as a team didn't do as well as they'd hoped, they were still a very good team all season and got some excellent wrestling from some of their qualifiers in the tournament. Logan Weeks and Cody Prulhiere were both wrestling at 132 pounds for Tillamook and they were excellent. Weeks, ranked No. 4 going into State, won his first two matches before falling to No. 1 ranked Zech Bresser from Henley. But, Weeks kept battling and ended up placing fourth overall. Prulhiere won his first match but lost his second and ended up wrestling all the way back to fifth place. He would

have done even better had he not had to wrestle his teammate Weeks along the way. Micha Kawano did a good job for Tillamook and ended taking sixth place at 152 pounds. Another Tillamook wrestler who went above and beyond his potential was Jonas AyalaSanchez. Ayala-Sanchez upset the No. 1 seed at 160 pounds and ended up taking fourth place for Tillamook. At 170 pounds, Myron Moore and Billy Prince both wrestled well and met each other along the way. Prince got the better of Moore and ended up taking fourth place overall. In the ladies tournament, Tya Tharp also wrestled well and ended up taking second place in her division. Tillamook ended up with seven kids placing at State. “The kids did a good job and had a good run. Especially the seniors,” Eggert said. “This was a fifth place team this season. We were only returning one state placer and that was Fowler. Plus a lot of those other schools who finished in front of us wrestle all year long. We didn't buy into that.” Eggert was pleased with his team’s finish, but especially pleased with what this group of kids means to him. “They did a great job,” Eggert said. “I'm glad we had the opportunity to give the kids a fifth place finish and I'm glad they seized it. “Next year we'll have two kids returning who placed and we could have the opportunity to be even better than we were this season.”

Headlight Herald Sports

The Neah-Kah-Nie Pirates and the Nestucca Bobcats sent their best wrestlers to the State Wrestling Tournament on Feb. 22-23 with high hopes of a few of the individuals making some noise and reaching the State finals. For the Pirates, Logan Romig, Alejandro Quintana and Matt Clayson were the representatives with Quintana and Romig both wrestling at 132 pounds and Quintana being the No. 1 ranked wrestler. Unranked Romig did the best he could, but lost his first match in overtime 8-6. The match easily could have gone either way. Then he led going into the third period in his next match but according to Romig, made a mistake that

cost him the match. “I was trying to get the pin and not the win,” Romig said about the last match of his junior year. Matt Clayton didn't fare much better for the Pirates at 120 pounds. Clayton lost his first match, won his second and ended up losing his third to end his tournament. Quintana was the one Pirate who really made a run and the championship. Quintana, a junior, wrestled his way through the field and made it to the finals. He wrestled a great finals match against Bolt Anglen from Culver, but lost 7-4 to take second place. The Bobcats had Lucas Leslie, Nate Parks and Sam Kenagy as their three State qualifying wrestlers.

Kenagy lost his first match, won his second and lost his third knocking him out before he made it into placing position. Parks lost his first two matches and was eliminated. Leslie won his first match and lost his second, but ground out another win and ended up finishing the tournament in fourth place. Lucas might have been in the deepest weight class in the state,” said Bobcat coach Cameron Mitchem. “There were three different wrestlers in that group who'd all been to the finals in the last three years. “We ended up with the three wrestlers at State. I thought we could have had a couple more, but with the kids we had come out, I thought the team did well this season.”

Tillamook battled with all they had against Seaside with their season on the line and when the final buzzer sounded, Tillamook's heart was still beating with a 64-61 win. A win that forced another playoff game against Astoria the following day at Seaside. “We had even scoring with Hancock, Strang and Stelflug all having eight points and almost every Cheesemaker scoring at least one point, but it wasn't quite enough. “We didn't have any legs left at all,” Werner said. “It was our third game in five days and everything comes from your legs. Our toughest opponent was not enough time to rest.” To make matters worse, Astoria's Strange was 8-10 form the line and Astoria as a team was 13-22 while Tillamook was 12-16. Despite Waud hitting a last second three as time expired, Tillamook fell to the Fishermen, 44-43 to end their season. Despite, finally having their season and careers come to an end, Tillamook's seniors Matt Travers, Nate McRae and Jacob Hurliman had wonderful high school careers and will be missed by Tillamook basketball, but will always be part of the Tillamook basketball family.

Actress Liz Cole and historian Mark Beach collaborated, with help from Portland playwright Ellen West, to produce the 45minute-long play that will be performed on Sunday, Mar. 10, at Pine Grove Community House, and Sunday, Mar. 17, at TAPA in Tillamook.

Back by popular demand, ‘Lost Pioneer’ offers a look at early pioneer life in Tillamook County BY DAVE FISHER The Citizen

If you missed it the first time around last fall, the play, Lost Pioneer, is back for two performances, one in Manzanita at Pine Grove Community House on Mar. 7, and the other on the following Sunday, Mar. 17, in Tillamook at TAPA. The play is the result of a collaborative effort between Neahkahnie residents Mark Beach and Liz Cole, based on research by historian Beach of three Tillamook County pioneer women, with the acclaimed actress, Cole, in the lead role. Neither Beach nor Cole had written a play before the debut of Lost Pioneer last fall and that was problematic. In enlisting the help of award-winning Portland playwright Ellen West, Beach’s idea of a play depicting pioneer life in Tillamook County began to take shape. It also got a shot in the arm financially receiving a grant of nearly $2,000 from the Tillamook County Cultural Coalition in partnership with the Nehalem Valley Historical Society, Tillamook County Pioneer Museum and Tillamook County Historical Society. “We were surprised at the interest level, particularly in Manzanita,” said Beach of Lost Pioneer. “As soon as we started selling tickets it became clear we needed to schedule

another performance in Manzanita at Pine Grove. Even after that, people asked us, ‘When are you going to do it again?’ And, now is that time.” The two performances at Pine Grove last year sold out, as did another in Tillamook. A fourth performance was staged in Pacific City, but perhaps the most memorable happened at Neah-Kah-Nie High School in the library before a freshman class. “It was on a Friday, and it happened to be Homecoming Day. The kids were full of Pirate pride, decked out in school colors and had their faces painted,” said Beach. “They were a great audience.” Following the production, Beach and Cole received upwards of 25 letters from grateful students. “I was skeptical about hearing a lady talk to herself for an hour but you (Cole) made it really amazing. You made it so I could fill in the blank parts with my imagination,” said one student. “I enjoyed how you could scream with such poise,” said another. And then this telling observation: “I’m 14 years old, so when the early marriage topic came up it was hard for me to imagine having a hubby in two years. I can barely keep my room clean so taking care of a whole house and soon a family

would be utter chaos. Not to mention weird.” Beach was aided in his research by relatives of the three pioneer women and the fact that they kept a good record of their life experiences. Frannie, the main character, is a compilation of the three women, featuring bits and pieces of each with the imaginations of Beach and Cole filling in the gaps to give the play life. The play takes place on Christmas Eve 1941, three weeks after Pearl Harbor was attacked. Frannie, 66, is on her way to Portland to spend Christmas with her children, but suffers a bump on the head when she drives her vehicle off the road and becomes lodged between a couple of trees not far from her home. In her delirium that follows, reality is blurred as she meets up with the ghosts of those who have preceded her. In the process, audience members become better acquainted with the pioneer woman, her husbands and children. As for how the play ends, you’ll have to buy a ticket to find out. Is there a sequel to Lost Pioneer? Maybe. Beach has a couple of ideas in mind; spin offs of other characters in the original play. “It took us over two years to produce Lost Pioneer and I suspect if we decide to do a

sequel, and I think we will, the timeline is probably another two years.” In the meantime, Beach and Cole are appreciative of the audience support and the fact that the interest level has afforded them the opportunity to present Lost Pioneer two more times in March. “It has been a very rewarding experience and we’re grateful to the Nehalem Valley Historical Society and Tillamook County Historical Society for all of their support,” Beach said. The Manzanita performance on Sunday, Mar. 10, begins at 3 p.m., at Pine Grove Community House. The Tillamook performance takes place a week later, on Mar. 17, and also starts at 3 p.m., at TAPA at 12th and Ivy. Ticket sales for each performance ($10 per ticket) are expected to be brisk, and sell outs are expected. Call today and reserve your tickets for the event. Manzanita tickets may be reserved by calling the Nehalem Valley Historical Society at (503) 368-7460 and leaving a message. For the Tillamook event, call the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum, (503) 842-4553. Performances will include a question and answer session following the play with historical researcher Mark Beach and the play’s star, Liz Cole.

Sisters Whitney Lewis and Tara Churchill, both of Tillamook, gave birth to babies Wyatt Anthony Lewis and Brinley Kaye-Marie Churchill on the same day, Jan. 11, 2013, at Tillamook County General Hospital. Tara gave birth to daughter, Brinley at 6:15 a.m., and Whitney gave birth to son Wyatt at 9:21 p.m. “I was in labor for a couple of days, I don’t even know how long,” said Whitney, “and when Tara checked in to the birthing center, a nurse was joking with me, and she said, “wouldn’t it be something if your sister has her baby in two hours?” That is just what happened. “I was in labor for an hour and fifteen minutes,” said Tara, smiling. The sisters can laugh about it now. Brinley’s dad is Joel Churchill. She joins brothers Jace, 3, and Lance, 5. Her grandparents are Lori and Carl Delanoy (who are also grandparents to baby Wyatt) and Randy and Karlene Cornett, and Dave and Tracy Churchill. Great grandmothers are Dorothy Churchill and June Olsen, both of Tillamook. Wyatt’s dad is Wayne Lewis Jr. He joins brother Wayne, 2. Wyatt’s grandparents are Lori and Carl Delanoy and Steven Wilks, and his great grandmother is Patricia Wilks, all of Tillamook.

elean Rouse presented the program at February’s Nesko Club meeting a week ago Friday. Keeping within the assigned theme of romance, Ielean had a clever attention getter to start off the discussion when she unbuttoned her pink overcoat to reveal a silky kimono printed with red roses. She and her guests informed the assembled South County Fencepost throng that excess outdoor lighting, the easiest form of pollution to combat, not only robs us of a romantic view, but can confuse young or migrating wildlife, even endangering their very lives. Street lights in Tierra del Mar have been converted to International Dark Sky Lighting Standards, so we that are curious about the difference can take a field trip there an observe for ourselves. There’s quite an education available online, try a google search. Tillamook P.U.D. will install shields on your outdoor light for free; call them at 503-842-2535. On the subject of all night events, Tillamook’s Relay for Life is recruiting acts to perform throughout the annual fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, from 11:30 a.m. on June 29 through 9:00 a.m. on June 30. Family friendly entertainment may include bands, dancers, singers, comedians, clowns, or others willing to donate their time and talent to benefit the cause and receive free promo-


“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.” – Albert Einstein


ope Benedict XVI broke a 600-year tradition and resigned on Monday, February 11. Within hours, a single bolt of lightening struck the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica… Four days later, a huge meteorite exploded into a “ball of fire” as it came streaking out of the sky and smashed into Russia… The same day, February 15, in a chilling coincidence, a massive asteroid narrowly missed the earth as it flew across the sky over Florida. It was about 17,150 feet up in the atmosphere, as it dodged communication and defense satellites. It came closer to hitting the earth than any asteroid in history. The U.S. Congress proved human stupidity; while they were on vacation, Americans worried about their own jobs, finances, health, security,



hanks, first, to Ruby Smith. Ruby donated two books to the Garibaldi Library, in memory of Evelyn Dikeman: "Science of Good Cooking," by the editors of America's Test Kitchen and Guy Crosby, and "Stitch by Stitch: One Project at a Time," by Deborah Moebes. Both books are apparently popular items; they’re already currently checked out. The two TAPA plays collectively called “Memory” will be playing Friday, Saturday and Sunday this weekend – 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. on Sunday. “I Can’t Remember Anything” by Arthur Miller stars Sandra Koops and Robert Kratz, and “The 75th” by Israel Horovitz stars Terri Winkle and Bill Farnum (Bill also directed the performances). Reserve your seats at Diamond Art Jewelers, 503/842-7940. And it’s a good idea to do it early – TAPA’s performances have regularly been

tion; all signs and banners are welcome. For more information or to sign up call Tammy Samagaio, 503-812-8286. When I penned last week’s Fencepost column, I got so caught up with bragging about my piece selling at the Community Arts Project’s fundraiser, that I misreported a detail. I did previously create “art” for public consumption when I mailed a hobo style handbag that I crocheted from Fred Meyer bags to last year’s CARTM Trash Art Show. It was title “stretchy Vessel” and sold for $20. I was reminded when email landed in this week’s inbox, calling for 2013 entries. The show happens the weekend after July 4th at The Hoffman Center in Manzanita. Artists may submit up to three pieces of work for the show. There is no entry fee and the only stipulations are that all artwork must be made with recycled, repurposed or reused materials and fit through a standard size door. Each submitted piece must have a title and be ready with appropriate hardware for hanging or display. The work must be for sale with the split being 50 percent to the artist and 50 percent donated to CARTM and Hoffman Center. You can deliver Trash Art for the show to the Hoffman Center on Saturday, June 29, or Sunday, June 30, between 1 and 4 pm; late entries will not be accepted. For more information contact Carl Vandervoort at 503-3683805 or Speaking of garbage, the Tillamook County Solid Waste Department will hold its free monthly collection of Household Hazardous Waste , from 91:00 this Saturday, March 2 at the Tillamook Transfer Station, 1315 Ekloff Road in Tillamook. Collection occurs between the hours of 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. There will be no collection in

April. Fire Chief Kris Weiland recently wrote an open letter to owners and tenants of public spaces in our neck of the woods. In it he explains that a recent complaint alerted him to possible safety hazards in public buildings. He plans to set appointments to inspect such spaces for fire hazards in the coming weeks. He’ll be watching for: posted occupancy limits, functioning emergency lights where required, use of extension cords in place of permanent wiring, multi plug adaptors that do not have built in circuit breakers or “piggybacked” one to another, clearances to electrical panels and labels on circuit breakers, current hood and duct cleaning and servicing in restaurant kitchens, current serviceable fire extinguishers of the correct type and quantity, and clearly marked and well lit exits. “These are general life safety items and precautions to prevent fires. The goal is make your business safe for your customers, employees and to prevent fire, loss of life, property and business,” Kris wrote. He’ll be contacting affected businesses soon to set a time to meet with you. It’s not too late to order Dutch Mill Bulbs from Cedar Creek Childcare’s fundraiser happening through Friday, March 1. Hanging begonias or strawberries, an herb garden greenhouse, gladiolas, lilies, and amaryllis, all are $7.00 each Call Director, Dian Wilkinson at 503392-4449. Happy birthday this week to: Justin Buford, Shane Dedmon, Carl Dietz, Jodi Green, Eric Hanson, Logan Kellow, Chad Larimore, Louise Nims, Bob Parks, George Sisson, Ginger Slavens, Elizabeth Tondreau, Pierce Trent, Madeline Trost, McKenzie Webster and Ryan Wickham.

schools and the “little things” the big boys didn’t have time for. I can honestly say that we are blessed to live in Netarts and Oceanside, with our mild weather, clean water and clean air, blue sky, sunshine and peace… The St. Valentine’s Day Masquerade fundraiser for the Tillamook Animal Shelter that was held at the Schooner was a HUGE success. The grand total raised at the benefit was $2,035 in cash, 450 pounds of dog food and a large box full of dog beds and blankets! Debbie Lusk won the “Week-end in a Basket” raffle. This was the single biggest fundraiser for the Tillamook County Animal Shelter - EVER! A huge thank-you goes to Seana Louise Stephenson, Tom and Tommy Flood, all of the Schooner staff and the local merchants who gave donations. Thanks also go to the community for all of the love and support that was given. The “dogs” are lucky to have people like you! The seismic upgrade and remodel of the Netarts Fire Station and hall is 90 percent finished with the exception of one office, and finish details in the hall. Volunteers and staff will do the work. The entire building will be repainted gray with red trim. Slowly, items and equipment are being moved in from storage, so as to sort, clean and organize as they go. Oceanside Station #62, has new “Living Quarters” that were

constructed in the north end of the building. The Fire District will have an open house when the projects are completed. Mr. Malcom Bernard Haddon Watts departed this world at 4 p.m., “Tea time,” on February 16, 2013, surrounded by his loving family. He was born on November 9, 1928. He and his beautiful wife, Natalie immigrated from England and neither ever lost their charm… My thoughts and love are with Natalie, Nick, his brother, and sister, Jenny. The Netarts Community (County) Park meeting was held February 17. The new Officers are: Tim Carpenter - Pres., Maxine McDonald Ryland - VicePres., Mary Jo Dzundza - Sec., Andy Stephens - Treas., and Lori Carpenter - Historian. The next meeting is scheduled for March 16 at 10 a.m. in the park. Next week I will announce the winners of the 16th Annual Chili Cook-Off and report on how much money was raised for Hospice. The 2013 Tillamook High School Charity Drive is over… I do not know yet which class raised the most money and won this year. But… if the senior class was successful in winning all four years, they tied the record (albeit not $ amount) that has been held for forty years by the Class of 1972! If not – the challenge is on for the Class of 2014… Congratulations to students, teachers, parents and the community for an outstanding accomplishment!

sellouts. Saturday evening, March 2 at 7 p.m. there will be another of the Bay City Arts Center’s Performer Showcases. They’ll have “Chocolate Mousse” (that’s Joan Petty on piano, Jeanna Stephens on cello, and Dennis “Doc” Wagner on blues harp), Jim Loughrie, Wil Duncan, and the area’s newest band, Benny and the Bay City Rockers. Coffee, tea, cookies, and admission are all free. The following weekend, March 9-10, is the kids’ coloring contest at the Garibaldi Museum, open to kids 7 and under with paid admission ($3 for adults, $2.50 for seniors and kids under 12). What everybody’s going to be coloring is a crab (of course – it’s Crab Races Weekend). Remember that the Pacific Northwest Championship Crab Races (so called because no one else has one) are the biggest fund-raiser of the year for the Garibaldi Lions Club, our oldest, biggest and most active charity. This event is run totally by volunteers – a big crew of volunteers – and they could use your help. Contact Lions Club president Judy Riley at the Post Office. The deadline for filing for one of the seats on the Garibaldi Port Commission is March 21. There are three 4-year positions – those held by Bob Browning, Val Folkema, and John Luquette – and one 2-year one, the one to which Paul Daniels was appointed after Dave May resigned. You

can file either by circulating a nominating petition (obtained from county clerk Tassi O’Neill’s office) and getting the requisite number of signatures, or by paying a $10 filing fee. Tassi’s office is open Monday through Friday, 8-5; phone is 503/842-3402. The Port of Garibaldi’s territory is huge – 350 square miles, stretching from the Wilson River to Nedonna Beach and from the ocean to the east county line. The territory includes the cities of Garibaldi, Bay City and Rockaway Beach. Questions about being a Garibaldi Port Commissioner should be directed to the Port’s office (503/322-3292). Lastly, there still a couple of slots available for the Garibaldi Library’s one-on-one computer class Friday, April 12. (This is being mentioned early because those slots fill up early and quickly.) The syllabus reads like a basic introduction to the 21st century: basic word processing, email, Internet and (yes) Facebook, and how to use one of those new e-Book readers and work the library system’s new card catalog. Interested? Contact Norma at the Library, 503/3222100. And March 2, in case you’d forgotten, is Dr. Seuss’ birthday. He was a great promoter of reading, especially for youngsters – and his “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish” could have been written about Garibaldi.

cutting that we would lose it, but now a we can breathe a sigh of relief as it starts to grow and take shape. If you missed the NCRD showing of the Riverbend Players’ musical performance of "The Cedar Grove" written by Sue Jelineo you still have a chance on March 1st and 2nd at 7:00 p.m., or on March 3rd for the 2:00 p.m. matinee. Tickets are $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for all children in a family. Snacks are provided at intermission. A friend of mine thought it would be a good idea to post a list of things needed to be prepared in an emergency: 1. Have a family plan and a neighborhood plan. 2. Prepare a 72-hour kit and make sure it is easily accessible. 3. Have a pre-determined contact outside the state, preferably one that you can text. Let other family members know who that contact is. 4. Specify ICE (In Case of Emergency) information on your cell phone. 5. Always keep gas in your vehicle. These are really good ideas for an emergency. Some things may need to be different for each individual depending on where you live and how many people are in your family or if you don't drive and depend on someone else for transportation. Just a reminder about the Manzanita Beach Walk/Run that is on Saturday July 20, 2013 -- don't forget to register early to get a better rate.

Just go to the NCRD website, locate the Manzanita Beach Walk/Run (easy to find) and follow the registration process. Participants start arriving at 6:30 a.m. There is a participant pep talk at 8:50 a.m. and the event begins at 9 a.m. So keep working and get ready -- it will be here before we know it. Sending a reminder out to all the High School senior girls: the Manzanita Women's Club would like to remind you to contact your counselors or advisers to get information on the Women's Club of Manzanita/North County's scholarships, they have two they will be giving out this year and applications must be in by March 30th. Good Luck! March 1 is National Peanut Butter Lovers Day! And March 3 is National Anthem Day! So if we get some nice weather on March first, have a picnic and bring along a PB and J, or as one of our kids likes a PB and Honey. On March 3, no matter where you are, why not go ahead and sing or even hum our national anthem. Happy Birthday to a great little girl who turned 9 on February 13, 2013 -Michelle Zamora! Happy Birthday to Marty Davidson and Carrie Vermilyea! Anything you think you’d like to share for the Fencepost, send it to me at See You Soon!

I took my walking stick so I could steady myself and not fall. Lots farther for me to go CAPE MEARES down.

Now I have a new little shrub to replace it as I don't think the damaged one will make it. How did they know I needed a replacement plant? Today is sunny here and then I guess we are back to rain the rest of the week. I didn't get around to registering for the Master Gardener Pruning Day. Had to register by February 18. Pruning Day is March 2. Now I will have to do what I can to prune the shrubs myself. Would liked to have had some help. But that's how it goes. Didn't look at the calendar in time again. I don't have much to report on this week. I didn't make it to the Cape Meares Community Association meeting and spaghetti meal at the community building on February 9. Hope to get a report on the meeting and emergency information given. Also, missed the Cape Meares Lighthouse and Wildlife meeting on February 9. Didn't miss my birthday though, so all in line again.




ou can tell spring is in the air even as chilly as it's been. The tulips in our planters are starting to come up and we’re seeing some of the other trees and flowers blooming. I love spring when it's not raining (which is not very often) -everything in bloom and the hints of summer coming. It almost makes the rain bearable. The Manzanita library is a great place to spend an hour or so if you looking for something for the little ones on a Saturday. Story time is 11:00 a.m. Boy Scout Troop 178 will start selling candy bars for $2 and pepperoni sticks for $1 to fund their trip to Boy Scout camp. Please support our local Boy Scout Troop 178. Our bonsai adventure is going very well, we got the roots trimmed and our 12 year-old son did the design of the tree; it's been almost a month now and we are already starting to see new growth on the tree and green on some of the branches. I was so worried after all the

You can check the city's Facebook page, or heck, just go visit them in person and welcome them to our community. We are a friendly neighborhood, right? I received a call telling me I won second place in the Neahka-nie S.A.F.E. fundraiser. Dale and I had bought tickets at the Spaghetti Dinner several months ago and had forgotten we had. Kristine Hayes called to let us know we had won. How cool is that? Time to hit the beach to find goodies from the Japanese current. Clyde Barnhill found a 17" glass float on Thurs, Feb 7th. He found it at high tide on his morning walk. It must have been that morning I didn't jog on the beach, as that is my usual route. Curses, foiled again!

just got back from visiting my salmon Auti at the Library. They are hoping for release around March 9th, but if you want to be included in the release you need to get down to the library and leave your name and phone number so you can be notified of the exact date. The babies are all getting so big, Auti seemed a bit smaller than the rest and was still in his usual alone space. Here is your latest life of a salmon history lesson: By the time the fry are ready to begin migrating to the ocean, their bodies have developed so that they will be able to make the change from fresh to salt water. They are called smolts at this stage. Rain is often the signal for smolts to begin migrating downstream to the ocean, traveling by night, hiding and resting in pools by day. If they lare forced to linger too long in any resting place along the way to the ocean, they may lose the urge to migrate. To get to the ocean smolts swim through an estuary, a coastal wetland where they may stay for a while to get used to salt water before swimming out to sea. Someone requested a “Music Note” portion to my column, so Louise Bogard, this is especially for you: Benny and the Bay City Rockers will be performing with a sing a long at the Art Center here in Bay City on March 2nd, from 7-9pm. And then again on March 8th from 68pm at the 2nd Street Market in Tillamook. This important information is from our own Gordon McCraw: To keep food safe from harmful bacteria: • Clean. People should wash their hands thoroughly before and after handling meat. Clean all food preparation surfaces, cooking utensils and cookware after they come in contact with raw poultry. • Separate. When handling poultry, keep it and its juices away from ready-to-eat foods. Use one cutting board for fresh produce and a separate one for raw meat, poultry and seafood. • Cook. Always cook poultry to an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit as measured with a food thermometer. Check the internal temperature in the innermost part of the thigh and wing and

NOTES FROM THE COAST March 2nd at the Rockaway Beach Civic Facility. This event is one of our major fundraisers for the program and loads of fun for all. I will be serving again this year. Dale will be seating you. Our friend, Chrissy Carney will be making her debut volunteering. They are always in need of volunteers for this event, so if you can spare an hour or two, they would love it. Anyone who would like to help out can contact Laurie DeKleyn by leaving a message at City Hall 503-355-2291 or send an email to Meanwhile, if you just want to come and eat it will also be fun. Be sure to say hi. I can't promise to remember all your names, but I never forget a face. The "Circle of Caring" group meets on the first and fourth Thursdays of the month. This is a wonderful group of like-minded folks who get together to knit, sew and crochet for various charities in our community. These folks have made baby blankets, sweaters and caps for two Tillamook County Health Department Programs; the Health Families and Cocoon Nursing Programs. A wonderful and I'm sure, humbling service just for our children. "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." I love to browse The Hope Chest in Rockaway Beach. They are an all-volunteer store. They also have a store in Nehalem and they give 100% back to the community. Your donations are always welcome. And volunteers are always needed and appreciated. Call Terry Walhood at 503 355 0782. Terry's name comes up a lot when volunteers are needed. A big kudos' to you Terry.

Turns out, laughter is always the best medicine


hen I was a teen, I read that feature in Readers Digest, a small, fat magazine found now only in doctors’ offices. It was a collection of condensed anecdotes that were supposed to make you chuckle. I heard recently Readers Digest doesn’t have much longer. They didn’t make the transfer to the digital age. Does that mean eventually there will be no reading materials in your dentist’s office? Will you find a stack of digital readers with Sunset Magazine downloaded on them or will Dr. Thompson expect you to bring your own iPad or smart phone? You’ll have to bring your own humor. Laugh and the whole world laughs with you. You become human when you laugh at yourself, which is why Donald Trump is an alien. I was on my daily errands in Pacific City, which includes the post office. I started around a blind corner and suddenly confronted a man. He looked at me for ½ second, dropped his eyes, said, just picking up my mail, and laughed, heh, heh, heh. Have you noticed we laugh when nothing’s funny? We laugh all the time. Sorry, didn’t mean to bump you, hee, hee. Ha, I grabbed the wrong item, Ho, ho, ho, Merry Christmas. Thomas Carlyle said, only humans laugh, but Tom should have spent more time with chimpanzees. When chimps are scuffling and another

chimp approaches, one of the chimps will make a breathy, rapid, exhalation, a sort of pant, pant, pant. This is the precursor to our ha, ha, ha. This signals to others we’re not really fighting. It diffuses tension, reduces conflict and makes our lives safer. Actually I think all of us should spend more time with chimpanzees. The man I nearly ran SCHUBERT into at the post office was telling me, I’m no threat, MOORE so let me pass in peace. That’s why John Wayne said, you better smile when you call me that, Pilgrim. Laughter releases endorphins, a natural painkiller, the same as running, chocolate, or sex, but with your clothes on. Making someone else laugh is almost as good as laughing. This explains tickling, stand-up and William Shatner. Mice laugh. A researcher was rubbing mice with the tip of his finger. Rather than run away, the mice would chase his finger about and press themselves against it. Wondering if they were laughing but he just couldn’t hear, he recorded them at 50K/cycles/sec (humans hear up to 20K) slowed it down and played it back. Hee, hee, hee the mice went, they’re little legs clawing the air, his fingertip scratching their stom-

achs. My father was so ticklish he couldn’t bear to watch us kids wash our feet. The third type of laughter comes from tragicomedy, represented for millennia by the drama masks of Dionysus, one laughing, and one crying. This symbolized his dual nature, or who gets the pie in the face. Me falling off a cliff is tragedy. You falling off a cliff is comedy. Comedy is tragedy after a bathroom break. Occasionally grieving is mistaken for laughter. The face behaves the same – bared teeth, tears, howls. Expecting one thing and getting another creates comedy or tragedy. Grandpa is a woman is either comic, tragic, or a countrywestern song. And then there is the language – a comic claims, they laughed until they cried. I killed last night. At the highest level of humor is the biggest joke. You want to live. You’re going to die. Isn’t that a riot? Whether you decide to laugh or cry about it is the most important decision you will ever make. It also determines if people still think you’re funny after you’ve forgotten to bring the Cheetos. You might as well laugh; you can’t do anything about it. So Carlyle got it wrong. Other animals laugh. Perhaps the only valid quote about humankind’s uniqueness is what Mark Twain said. Man is the only animal that blushes – or has reason to.

GARDENING MATTERS Ideas for native plants in your garden


ast year I missed the Yard, Garden and Patio Show due to a conflict in schedules, so this year I was determined not to let anything stand in the way of me going to my favorite gardening show. I went alone this year, but stayed for seven hours and took advantage of several seminars and demonstrations.

find natives to fill just that spot. And there are lots of natives that do well on the coast! Many of them offer flowers, too, so your garden won’t need to be all foliage plants. Sean’s favorite seemed to be Manzanita (the plant, not the town), but he also mentioned Ceanothus, coast huckleberries, and dwarf coyote bush. All of which have lovely flowers in the spring, summer and winter, respectively. Sean also pointed out that spring for native plants starts in the fall with the rains. That’s when they are lush, lovely and green. They generally turn brown in the summer, going dormant as the rains end. Some great perennials for the native garden are California poppies, bleeding hearts, penstemons, and blueeyed grass. One plant we rarely think of using in the home garden is skunk cabbage, but those bright yellow leaves can be very dramatic in a wet, shady spot. The Columbia lily and Pacific coast iris are lovely as is the native Trillium. I have a trillium that has bloomed every year for the past five years, and I consider this a real coup. They don’t really like to be moved and can take up to seven years to settle in and be mature enough to bloom. Wild ginger is also a lovely woodland plant that will do well in the garden. (Sometimes a little

too well.) There are lots of lovely native ferns, too. Sword ferns, maidenhair ferns and deer ferns are easy in cool, shady spots, although I find the sword ferns do just as well in full sun as in shade. Lady ferns are good for shade or morning sun, too, although they can become bullies if let to grow unchecked. I have one that is now getting to be almost 4 feet tall, so I need to cut her back every fall just to keep her in line. Sean talked about how to get natives through the first, crucial summer. We need to extend the rainy season into June and July by watering the new plantings. But we also need to water when temperatures are cooler (beginning of the day) rather than at noon or in the evening. Ideally we should plant natives in late October, but mid- to late-February or early March should be okay, too. And most natives don’t like a rich soil, so there is no need to add more than a little compost to poor soils. The exceptions to this rule are the plants that naturally grow on the forest floor where debris from the trees breaks down into nice, rich compost. You can see why I take a notebook with me to the YGP Show each year: who could remember all that long enough to pass it along?

Connor is a youngster who is all about motion — he’s either on, playing furiously, or off, slumped in a lap, out of gas. Rescued at a local park after being abandoned, he’s now in foster care unlearning a few bad habits. But he’s a quick study, and soon won’t mistake people hands for cat play toys. This 9-month-old black and white tuxedo has been neutered, is current with shots, house trained and full of affection.

authorized to issue bonds for road improvements not exceeding $15,000,000? If the bonds are approved, they will be payable from taxes on property or property ownership that are not subject to the limits of sections 11 and 11b, Article XI of the Oregon Constitution. SUMMARY:If approved, this measure would provide funds for County road capital costs and bond issuance costs. Specifically, bond proceeds would be used for paving, repair, drainage and other road and bridge improvements and equipment for work on the county road system in north, south and central Tillamook County. A citizen oversight

committee would ensure funds are used as intended. Bonds would mature in eleven (11) years or less from issuance and be issued in one or more series. If approved, the County anticipates issuing the bonds in two series. Under this structure, property owners would pay approximately $0.39 per $1000 of assessed value or $39 per year on $100,000 of assessed value. The actual rate may vary depending upon interest rates, assessed value growth, and other factors. Once both the existing jail and hospital bonds are paid off in 2016, the estimated yearly property tax rate for the proposed road bonds is expected to not exceed the combined tax rate on

Neah-Kah-Nie wins the 16th annual Salmon Bowl Coaches Beth Gienger and Peter Walczak were grinning from ear to ear Saturday evening. Their two Neah-Kah-Nie National Ocean Science Bowl (NOSB) teams traveled to Corvallis last weekend to compete in the 16th Annual Salmon Bowl regional competition for the National Ocean Sciences Bowl. The competition, sponsored by Oregon State University’s College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences, focuses on all aspects of ocean sciences and this year there was an additional focus on the Great Lakes and freshwater science. Both teams played in a round robin, 5-round morning session, competing against teams from Oregon and one team from Boise, Idaho.

Gienger and Walczak were very proud of both teams; they performed very well over the course of the competition and were excellent representatives of Neah-Kah-Nie High School and Tillamook County. Coach Gienger is ecstatic to win and added, “This is really a win for both teams, one team could not learn nearly as much or perform as well on the buzzers without the other team pushing them. I really wish we could all travel to Wisconsin and continue on together, this is a great group of students.” The NKN-A, consisting of seniors Branson Laszlo, Chris Mills, Willa Childress and Chris Mills and junior Nathan Imholt won in a nail biting final round against last year’s champions, the Treasure

Valley Math and Science Center from Boise, Idaho. After a narrow loss to TVMSC in the morning, the two teams met again in the final round. The teams were tied at the half and at the end of the round! Salmon Bowl coordinators had to pull out the national rulebook to determine the format for the 5-question tiebreaker. After four questions, both teams were tied once again, with the final question set to determine the championship or face another tiebreaker. Captain Branson Lazslo was quick on the buzzer and delivered the correct answer to win the championship. Branson Laszlo summed it up when he said, “In one moment, all of the late nights, dedication and determination paid off. We had done what

we set out to do. I couldn’t be prouder of both Neah-KahNie teams.” The A team will travel to Milwaukee, Wisconsin April 18-21 to compete at the national level against NOSB teams from 25 regional competitions around the United States. NKN-B team undefeated in the morning rounds, and went into the afternoon with a higher ranking than NKN-A. NKN-B Captain, senior Austin Buckmeier did a great job of leading senior Andrew Baker, juniors Noah Elinsky and Dana Moore and sophomore Jonathan Woodward throughout the day. They were eliminated by the team from Westview in the quarterfinals after a day of big wins and hard fought

rounds against teams from McMinnville (A, B and C) Benson B, Astoria B, and Seaside. NKN-B provided great support for the remainder of the day to the NKN-A team. On Friday, the teams were able to tour the newly remodeled fish library on the Oregon State University campus where they saw preserved anglerfish, snipe eels, gulper eels and a variety of other fish, including a boxfish collected by Walczak in 1971. They met with three research scientists and learned about current research by Department of Fisheries and Wildlife professors and students. The next stop was down to visit Walczak’s son Paul, an employee of the College of

Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences. Paul was able to show students a variety of bottom sampling devices used in both ocean and freshwater research. This proved to be invaluable information; it provided the knowledge for winning the tiebreaker round and advancing to the national tournament! The afternoon ended at the LaSalle Stewart Center where students heard OSU alumni and astronaut Don Petit speak about life, research and free time on the International Space Station. Petit kept a full house engaged well beyond his hour commitment and university staff made him wrap it up; he needed to attend his induction into the OSU College of Engineering Hall of Fame.
