Tillamook native is new fair manager

Tillamook County commissioners say ‘no’ to marijuana dispensaries “What kind of message are we sending our children if a medical marijuana dispensary is opened near any of our schools?”

By Sayde Moser After several months without a manager, the Tillamook County Fair Board of Directors has given John Davy the job. Davy, who was born and raised in Tillamook, replaces Miranda Muir, who resigned suddenly in June 2013. Since that time, the fair board has been acting as the manager. Davy’s family John Davy has deep roots in the county. “They were homesteaders,” he said. His grandmother, Mildred Davy, was one of Tillamook’s “most widely known and respected citizens,” said Jon Carnahan, former president of Tillamook Bay Community College. John Davy, a graduate of Tillamook High School and Oregon State University, returned to this area two years ago after a six-year stay in Belgium where he worked for a financial company. He said he came back because, “I wanted to resettle and find out what I wanted to do with my life, and I felt Tillamook in the spring time, with summer right around the corner, was the best place to be.” Davy said he applied for the fair manager job because he enjoys “community networking and being involved.” Tillamook County Commissioner Bill Baertlein, who serves as the commissioners’ liaison to the fair board, applauded its decision to hire Davy. “John was born and raised in our community,” said Baertlein, “and understands the history [of the fair] and what a big part of our Tillamook heritage it is. “Those of us who grew up listening to John’s grandmother, See MANAGER, Page A8

The Tillamook County commissioners have imposed a one-year moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries. The dispensaries became legal in Oregon on Mar. 1. Two days later, the Oregon Health Authority began

taking applications statewide for dispensaries. Recent passage of Senate Bill 1531 gave local governments until May 1 to enact a moratorium on dispensaries for up to a year. And Sheriff Andy Long supports a moratorium in Tillamook County, telling the three county commisSee COUNTY, Page A7

Bay City gets FRESH By Sayde Moser smoser@countrymedia.n et

Truck convoy to honor Tillamook logger By Chelsea Yarnell George Gallino, known as Gramps to many in the Tillamook community, was a local legend. In the three decades that he worked as a logging trucker, he never had an accident. “That’s pretty hard to do,” said Gallino’s friend, Ray Scott. “You’d be hard pressed to find as good a logger as him. We have the utmost respect for him.” Gallino died Mar. 5 after a long battle with cancer. Hannah Thompson said she met Gallino when she was working at the South Prairie Store. He was a regular customer, said Thompson, who would tell her humorous stories that made her day. “I felt that he viewed me as a grandkid,” she said. “He was one of those people that either you absolutely loved, but if you didn’t have a tough shell you didn’t.” To celebrate Gallino’s life, Scott, Thompson and family friend Colby Leach have organized a truckers’ convoy. “It’s a thing truckers do out of respect,” Scott said. “We’re sad to lose him, so this is a farewell tribute to him.”

George Gallino, better known to some as Gramps, enjoyed building Model Ts from scratch almost as much as he enjoyed driving a log truck. His last ride, a purple Kenworth, will lead a truckers’ convoy through Tillamook on Mar. 22. Leach agrees. “George really meant a lot to a bunch of us,” he said. “We figured that he deserved something important, especially with

the log trucks.” The convoy will begin followSee GALLINO, Page A7

Vegetables have sprouted and new signs have emerged at the Art Space building at the corner of U.S. Highway 101 and 5th Street in Bay City. The makeover is just the beginning of a new transition, as the Kauffman family, which has been operating a café and art gallery out of the space for 26 years, is renovating it into something fresh. To be specific: FRESH Café and Market. At the helm of FRESH is second-generation daughter Kiva Kauffman, who is charging full speed into the family’s business endeavors. “I was raised in the kitchen at Art Space, then worked for several noted chefs in the area,” she said. “I’ve always gravitated towards baking and cooking. “This was an opportunity for me to do what I love to do, making healthy, nutritious, great food for everyone.” The elements of FRESH Café’s menu were tested at the Manzanita Farmers Market last season, featuring the café’s signature smoothies, whole-fruit juices, and wheatgrass shots and soups. The Art Space Café re-opened as FRESH soon after the market season ended, featuring homemade soups, sandwiches, breakSee FRESH, Page A5

City and county squabble over Third Street safety concern By Sayde Moser It’s been more than two years since the County of Tillamook entered into an agreement with Tillamook city officials to reconstruct Third Street, with the understanding the city would assume jurisdiction once the road project was completed. The subsequent $3.9 million upgrade resulted in, among other things, new pavement, a new bike lane, new sidewalks and curbs – and a potential safety hazard. “During our walk-through, city staff felt the parking situation in front of the bowling alley was too much of a liability for them to accept,” said Tillamook’s director of public works, Liane Welch. Tillamook Bowling Lanes, the only bowling alley in town, sits just

off of Third Street. It traditionally has enjoyed head-in parking in front of its building. The safety issue, said Welch, is that with the road’s new construction, Tillamook Bowling Lanes customers now are backing up over the sidewalk and adjacent bike path to exit the parking lot. Welch proposed having the county take the 150-foot space in front of the building to create two 30-foot partial driveways, with a sidewalk in between them, for parallel parking. She said doing so would allow vehicles to enter and exit without having to back up, and the bowling alley would lose only two parking spaces. But, Welch said, the Tillamook Lanes’ owners don’t want anyone See BOWLING, Page A7

The parking lot in front of Tillamook Bowling Lanes requires patrons to back out onto the sidewalk and bike lane in order to exit. City staff have recommended not accepting jurisdiction of Third Street until county officials have addressed this safety issue.

‘Spring is in the air affair’ at Kiawanda Community Center

Photo by Dave Fisher

A Fourth of July fireworks stand next to Manzanita Grocery and Deli has long been a fundraiser for the Rotary Club of North Tillamook County. Above, charter member Lloyd Seely helps customers. The booth will not disappear, however, as another local organization will take over its operation.

Twenty members strong when it was chartered in June 2007, the Rotary Club of North Tillamook County has seen its membership decline over the years. At a special meeting in late February, members voted to dissolve the club.  “We were starting to revive,” said club president Laura Swanson, “but with so few members, we just couldn’t do all the trainings and meetings required by the district and national organization.” In fact, the club’s membership had dwindled to less than a dozen, with only half of those active, said Swanson, who has been a Rotary member for four years. “I like everything about Rotary,” said Swanson, “its mission and our local projects. What we did locally really kept me involved.”


resh start,

Among the club’s local projects were an annual “Coho Salmon Harvest” benefiting Tillamook County food banks; a Fourth of July fireworks booth in Manzanita, which club members operated as a fundraiser; and a program through which Nehalem Grade School fourth- and fifth-graders each received a dictionary and thesaurus provided by Rotary. Swanson said the projects associated with the local Rotary will be handed off to other civic organizations. She added that members who want to continue their Rotary involvement could join Rotary clubs in Tillamook or Seaside. Looking to disperse the funds still at its disposal, the Rotary Club of North Tillamook County has initiated a final “Blaze of Glory” program in which it will issue grants to local nonprofit groups, schools, churches and

other charitable organizations. Grants will be awarded up to $1,000. Projects and organizations should have a local community benefit or a nonprofit mission. To obtain an application for a grant, contact Swanson at or at 503-368-3688, or Lloyd Seely at or at 503-368-6010. Applications are due by April 3.

Team Captain Marie Krueger led the Prose contingent by making finals in every tournament this season.  She became a “Proven Excellence” early qualifier to the State tournament by placing 2nd at Barlow, and winning at both the Silverton and McMinnville Tournaments.”

As America ages, we are only beginning to grapple with the challenges posed by crimes against older people. Readers would have been shocked and moved by the story of Joe, a senior who was rarely visited by his extended family. Joe came to rely on a new friend to get him his to appointments, pay bills, and buy groceries – only for it to be discovered months later that this “friend”had been stealing money and selling Joe’s personal belongings. Because he is a senior, Joe qualified for a Senior/ Disabled Person’s restraining order to protect him from this predator. This is not an extreme case, and it is important to understand that it is not uncommon, and that elder abuse can take many forms. Older people within a wide age range (from the 60s to over 90s) of all income levels and social situations are vulnerable. Abuse occurs in the home, in assisted living facilities, and in the wider community. As in Joe’s story, this abuse most often happens at the hands of trusted people, such as friends and caregivers. But the emerging research suggests that elders are most likely to be abused by their own family members, including partners, spouses, children, and grandchildren. As well as physical and mental abuse, older people can be particularly targeted for financial fraud. It is not just those over 75 like Joe, who we might expect could have challenges with decreased mental, physical, and mobility capacity, who are at risk. Older adults on the brink of retirement with money to invest and those perceived to have resources to exploit are also prime targets. April 6-12 is National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. It is an opportunity for all of us to do what we can to ensure the older people in our neighborhoods, and in our own families, are safe from neglect and exploitation. It can be as easy as dropping by once a week, listening to their concerns, and helping out where you can. It only takes a few minutes, but it could mean the world to them.

What an awesome community Dear Tillamook county, My name is Sherrie LaBat. My husband and I

are full timers in our RV. We were traveling all along the coast doing camp hosting and just enjoying the coast. Well we came to Rockaway Beach in December 2013 to camp host at Shorewood RV Park in and quickly became assistant managers there until January 2014. While be here in Tillamook I have been going to the Tillamook health department because, I was starting to feel sick. I have not had insurance for almost 6 years as I just could not afford it. The first day in the health department I collapsed in their office and ended up in the ER with COPD. I started seeing Marty Caudle, at the Rockaway Beach branch and boy I was getting worse. As I was getting worse, Seniors and People with Disabilities was fighting for me to get medical and I also needed to have home care as I was going down so fast no one knew what was wrong with me. On the afternoon of Nov. 26 I received the call that I was approved for medical. Wow, what a great day it was when I went to my doctor In Rockaway Beach; he got all the referrals in one being the Oregon Pulmonary in Portland, Ore. There I saw Dr. Poonyagariyagorn,M.D. and we were no way prepared to get the news that we got from her. After, checking me out and reviewing all the test she looked at me and said “you need to get on the list for a double lung transplant.” My husband and I looked at each other in total shock. When we left her office we drove home and cried and we couldn’t even talk to each other. The next day we called and emailed my Dr. Marty Candle he to in in shock because if I didn’t get the medical insurance that I needed that we would only be treating the outburst that COPD dose and would probably die very soon. So, where are we now? As of today we are waiting for the referral to go through then it will be a lot of trips to Seattle Washington to the transplant hospital. I would like to thank Tillamook County and the community for helping me get medical, meals on wheels help out so much with the food, Shorewood RV Park in supporting us through this and Laura Larkin with Seniors and People with Disabilities for the very hard work she had to do just to get medical, and most of all thank you Barbara, a counselor at the health department who helps us deal with this news and every day feelings that a person goes through being told you are dying. My husband and I are now going plant our life here because after my double lung transplant I, would like

Beware of trappers when walking dogs About two weeks ago I was walking my two female mastiff dogs on the Tillamook Forest road at about 1 p.m., as I have done for the past 10 years, I lost sight of them for a short period of time. I was able to locate one dog but I was unable to locate the other. I searched for over an hour and returned to my home to drop off the one dog and get some dry clothes before returning back to the forest. I continued my search and located my dog on the side of the road. Her right front foot was caught in a leg hold trap. She had struggled for about six hours before pulling the trap free from its anchor. I removed the trap from her leg. It was very upsetting to me because she is breeding stock. She did not have a broken leg or any broken bones, however the veterinary care cost about $130. In checking with the Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, I was told that trappers are not responsible for injuries to domestic animals caught in their traps and they are not required to notify the public or mark where their traps are located. I can understand why trappers would not want to mark or post the area as animal rights people might destroy the traps. I am not against trapping, as furs are a valuable commodity and everyone has to earn a living. I would however like to see notification in the forest on reader boarders where significant information is posted that trapping season is open. This would alert people who walk their dogs in the forest so they can be aware trapping is going on. It would reduce the danger of injuries to domestic animals as I know several neighbors walk their dogs in the forest and would appreciate this information. Dan Gillespie Tillamook

Tillamook loses one of its greats We have lost a great member of our community recently. Bud Gienger contributed greatly to our community. From his investments into Tillamook Country Smoker, Baybreeze Golf Course and many other ventures he has helped bring many jobs to our little community. He has given generously of his time and money to local civic organizations, especially Tillamook YMCA. His accomplishments are more than I can list but what I admired most was his work ethic. He took a rundown swamp farm and turned it into a very productive dairy. He never knew the meaning of can’t. He endured through multiple hip replacements and never complained. We will miss this man and his infectious smile and all he gave to this community of ours. His legacy will live on in his family and investment of community. Young people would greatly benefit to learn by Bud’s determination and can do attitude. Joe Jenck Tillamook See LETTERS, Page A5

Similar to a “communitysupported agriculture” (CSA) subscription, FRESH is a “community-supported enterprise,” said Kauffman. And as with a CSA, where a customer pays a local farm-

That, and FRESH continues to be a source to know where your food comes from, including eggs from Zweifel Farms and milk from Bennett Family Farms. “We’re working with organic suppliers and distributors and local farms to bring the best of the best to Bay City,” said Kauffman. “And also to make it affordable for everyone to eat safe, fresh foods that truly are good for them.” FRESH plans a grand opening celebration for Mar. 23 with food, and health and

wellness mini-sessions from local health-care providers. The event also will have information about meditation, yoga, massage, acupuncture and more. Face-painting and children’s activities, local musicians, and a celebration of spring and local foods will be just some of the grand opening’s highlights from 1 to 6 p.m. And there will be a special gallery exhibit with food-themed artwork from the Crossley family collection.

Since the late 1980s, the Tillamook County Family YMCA has been offering free swimming lessons to students in the Tillamook School District. Early on, it was third-grade classes that took the lessons, but four years ago the program was switched to firstgraders. “Part of that decision was just the close proximity of [Liberty Elementary School] and us,” said YMCA executive director Don Schmidt. “And it’s worked out wonderfully ever since.” Each school day, two of the firstgrade classes walk to the YMCA for 45 minutes of wet and wild fun. But it’s more than just a splash in the water. “It’s becoming aware of the water,” Schmidt said. “They go over safety, basic swimming skills, and remove some of that fear kids have sometimes of the water.” Each class gets lessons twice a week for three weeks.

But it could happen 10, 20 years from now, based on a decision we make today.” The council ultimately voted 3-2 to accept jurisdiction of the street once the county has made the proposed changes, with councilors Joe Martin and Henson voting no. “In my opinion, we’re putting the bowling alley in a jeopardizing position,” Henson said. “I think it’s a huge mistake to disrupt the parking.”

Something to crow about By Chelsea Yarnell

Four years ago on a gray winter day, Anne Savage of The Frugal Crow Vintage Market in Rockaway Beach decided to give one of the shop’s signature crow figurines some “pizzazz.” “They were just plain black and boring,” Savage said, “so I spray-glued turquoise glitter all over it and hung a crystal from its beak.” She used her finished project as décor in the shop – without realizing it would lead to much more than just the product of an afternoon’s craft. Customers of The Frugal Crow took a liking to the crow’s new makeover. And that sparked an idea for Savage. “I don’t know why, but it just came to me,” she recalled. “I thought, ‘Gosh, it was fun decorating those crows. Maybe other people would like to do it.’” Savage and her daughter and co-owner, Bree, decided to hold a crow-decorating contest to benefit the Senior Meals of Rockaway Beach program, which receives no federal funding for its operation. Last year, 72 crow figurines were bought, decorated and donated for auction, raising $1,800 for Senior Meals. “Some people in the community collect them, some people give them as funny

Crow entries in the decorating contest are on display at The Frugal Crow. gifts, and some donate them to places around town,” Savage said. She said people talk to her about their creative ideas yearround. “We’re just pleased as punch to do it and the community wouldn’t let us not do it now,” she said. There’s still a few days left to enter this year’s contest, said Savage. Crows can be purchased for $8 each from The Frugal Crow. They must be returned by Mar. 20 to be displayed in the shop’s window, or by Mar. 25 at the latest

for the auction. Beginning Mar. 22, the public will vote on those crows displayed in the store’s window. The top three winners in adult and children’s categories, along with the top crow in the “most macho,” “most beautiful,” “most literary” and “most humorous” categories, could receive prizes from various local supporters that include THE BITE, Dos Rocas, The Frugal Crow Vintage Market, Big Al’s Ice Cream, Trash and Treasure, and others Past entries have included

Lady CawCaw, Crow-bi Wan Kenobi, and Edger Allen Crow. The awards will be announced during the auction April 12 at St. Mary’s by the Sea Parish Hall at 6 p.m. The auction and party are free to all and will include food prepared by Senior Meals volunteers, donated pies for $3 a slice, and a chance to bid on a favorite crow. For more information, visit The Frugal Crow in Rockaway Beach at 108 U.S. Hwy. 101 or call Savage at 503-355-2035.

“I see a great potential with that facility,” he said. “It always has been a really positive mainstay in the community for events big and small. “I plan to make sure our off-season is filled with more events and more community organization usage. Hopefully, that will in turn provide a greater positive refurbishment to the facilities that will enhance what we already do.” He said he’s excited to work with the county fair’s new, reinvigorated board of directors. “I think they’re a very good mix of new and familiar faces,” he said. “They have new, fresh ideas mixed with years of experience. I think we’ll be able to do a number of good things.”

New rec district boss any day now By Dave Fisher For the Headlight Herald

ec y With 23 applicants to liar choose from, the North e County Recreation District h Board of Directors soon k will talk with the two top er of remaining candidates. A third candidate chosen to be interviewed withdrew his application, saying that after visiting the area he and his family decided they did not wish to relocate. The remaining two finalists hail from Washington and Colorado, and will be interviewed Mar. 21. The NCRD board will meet thereafter to decide who will be the rec district’s new general manager. “It’s a big question, a big responsibility,” said John Coopersmith, who replaced the departing Kevin Green-

wood as board chair. “It’s a tough act to follow,” added Coopersmith, referring to Peter Nunn tenure as the NCRD’s general manager for the past five years. Although the board expects to reach a decision by the end of the day Mar. 21, board member Jack Bloom urged caution. “What if we’re dissuaded with both candidates after the interviews?” he asked his counterparts. “Are we prepared not to make an offer?” “The best action will be what is best for the district,” Coopersmith responded, noting that NCRD could operate with an interim general manager while the search for a permanent GM continued. “The plan is to make an offer to the person selected

by Mar. 28,” Nunn had said previously, adding that he could stay on a while longer as the board finished its search. In other recent business, NCRD director Mary Gallagher was sworn in to replace Julie Chick, who resigned in February. In addition to Coopersmith, Bloom and Gallagher, Marie Ziemecki and Jennifer Holm, who was appointed following Greenwood’s resignation, round out the five-member board. In finalizing its goals for 2014, the NCRD board said its top priority is to continue to review staff benefits to ensure that the district attracts and retains qualified personnel. To that end, it has approved a retirement plan for its 12 full-time employees with a fixed 2

percent contribution with an employee match of at least 3 percent. That plan, which will be administered by TLC Federal Credit Union, will be reviewed annually as part of the NCRD’s budget process. Budgeting gets underway April 17.

Here’s an issue that surfaced a year ago in Rockaway Beach: Is it legal for someone to fire a cannon within the town’s city limits? What seems like an odd question had been posed by the Chamber of Commerce, which was preparing to hold its annual “Pirates Festival” at the wayside in Rockaway Beach. At that time, the City Council was concerned about safety issues. Plus, firing a cannon was against city ordinance. So there was no cannon fired during the “Pirates Festival.” Subsequently, the council reviewed the ordinance about discharging a firearm and amended it to allow for cannon fire – when appropriate, and when reviewed by the local authorities. “[The ordinance] includes

other stuff besides discharging a cannon,” said City Manager Lars Gare, “but by necessity, we covered that, too.” According to Rockaway Beach City Attorney John Putman, the ordinance allows for a few exceptions when it comes to discharging a firearm within city limits, such as self-defense or sanctioned school sporting events. Now, should someone want to fire a cannon in Rockaway Beach, there’s a process to follow, which includes first discussing safety measures with city officials and getting the approval of the town’s chief of police and city manager. Any appeals can be directed to the City Council. “We wanted to make it available for the Chamber to fire off their cannon and we did that,” said Rockaway Beach City Council president Richard Riley.

NKN baseball to Mooks to work keep up progress on technique by Chelsea Yarnell Prior to 2010, the NeahKah-Nie baseball program had been on a hiatus for a few seasons. NKN’s Athletic Director Leo Lawyer convinced Corkey Corwin out of retirement, NKN’s most successful baseball coach, and the two of them together returned the Pirates to the diamond and began to rebuild the school’s program . Now four years later, Lawyer has stepped down as head coach and Greg Kelley has filled his place along with Mitch Staehle for the 2013-14 season. During the 2012-13 season, the Pirates finished the season with a 4-19

record, the most wins since the program was reinstated, one of which was the first league win for the NKN baseball program since 2004. And hopefully this year’s team can keep the progress rolling. “We’re a squad that’s a combination of experience and youth,” Kelley said at a practice last week. “We seem like a group that likes to work hard and if we put in the work who knows what will happen. We have a lot potential.” The Pirates hosted their first game on Monday night against the Delphian Dragons and lost 1-14. The Pirates will host Naselle this Friday starting at 1 p.m.

by Chelsea Yarnell In her seventh year as Tillamook’s Head Tennis Coach, Allison Meyers looks forward to the upcoming season. “Every group is different, this year I have a really great group of girls,” she said at a practice last week. With 12 girls on the team she has enough athletes for four team of singles and four teams of doubles. At the start of every practice, Meyers gives the team the option to run six laps inside around the courts or two laps around the outside of the building. Then to continue warm-ups, athletes jump rope, practice their fronthand and backhand, and hit back and forth with a partner. Once the team is adequately

warmed up, Meyers begins practice. Her focus with a young team is really about technique. “Especially a racquet sport,” Meyers said about her practice plans, “[it’s about] moving with the racquet because they tend to overrun it...[I teach] them to realize how much space they have to get a good stroke off.” These techniques are especially important to master when the Cheesemakers’ competition is tough. “Some of the teams we play have a strong tradition of tennis and it’s hard to compete against them.” But, as a team the girls are getting better and better. With open court time during the offseason, the Mooks come into this season with refreshed skills. The tennis team will travel to Corbett on April 1 for their first match.

NKN Head Softball Coach Susie Saindon teaches Annie Kelly about proper pitching techniques at a recent practice.

NKN softball eager to improve by Chelsea Yarnell Without a coach for the first week of softball practice, it became a question of if the Pirate girls would even have a team this year, but then Susie Saindon stepped up and filled the position. “I am looking forward to helping the girls reach their softball goals individually as well as a team,” Saindon said. The Pirates are coming off a season where they only saw wins against Delphian’s J.V. team. They ended last year 3-19 overall and 0-15 in the league. But the team’s positive attitude and energy demonstrates their willingness

to not be held back by their past performances. “They’re amazing, they’re so eager and have such a drive,” Saindon said, “It’s really nice to see. I’m excited to watch them grow.” The Pirates traveled to their first game on Monday afternoon against the Delphian Dragons. The Pirates lost to the Dragons 4-19. But it’s just the beginning. “[I’m] looking forward to watching them progress and have great season,” Saindon said. The Pirates host Portland Adventist Academy for a doubleheader tomorrow at 3 p.m. Then, the girls will travel to Valley Catholic on Friday.

Mooks have state potential by Chelsea Yarnell After a mediocre season last year, the Mook golfers are ready to send people to state. Head Coach Wil Duncan has been a part of the Cheesemaker boys golf program for six years and just this year has inherited the girls team as well. “We have some really

nice kids who are out here having fun,” Duncan said watching the team chip on the green. “We have some really nice first year golfers.” David Waud is the top returning golfer for the Mooks. “[He]is one of the best golfers in our league, top three or four,” Duncan said. On the girls side Natalie Zuercher and Danielle Hiatt are the

only returners. “Both returning girls on our team have the ability to qualify for state, they just have to have a good round of golf in the district tournament” The girls first match will be this Thursday at the Wildwood Invite in Portland. The boys first match will be April 1 first at the Arrowhead Open in Molalla.

Splash-N-Dash April 5 by Chelsea Yarnell In an effort to raise funds for the Tillamook Junior High School’s mile-long fitness trail, Athletic Director Jamie Dixon has organized the second year of the Splash-N-Dash 5k and 10k run/walk. To be held Saturday, April 5, the day will begin with an adults 5k race at 10 a.m. followed by a 10k at 10:10 a.m.

A kid’s race will start after both of the adult races and will be around a quarter of a mile. All races will begin at the Port of Tillamook Bay Officers’ Mess Hall and travel the running trail at the Port. Race entry is $25 for an individual or $50 for a family entry that includes two adult and two kid’s race participants. All finishers will receive a medal with additional

awards going to the individual champion in the men and women’s 5k and 10k division. The first three finishers in each race who finish dressed in the race’s poncho theme will also receive honors. Those interested in participating can sign at the Port of Tillamook Bay Officers’ Mess Hall or obtain a form from the school’s website:

It’s that time of year again as the Tillamook chapter of CCA Oregon will be holding its 7th annual CCA Oregon banquet on March 22. CCA Oregon has been very busy since last year’s Tillamook banquet protecting the Columbia River harvest reforms, ensuring that hatcheries are not unnecessarily targeted for elimination or reduction and participating at all levels to make sure that recreational anglers are well represented in the management of our fisheries. CCA is 100 percent grass roots with membership driving the ship and chapter banquets supplying the lifeblood of the organization. Fundraising allows them to ensure that recreational anglers and more importantly that resources continue to be represented by the most qualified staff available. The banquet committee is once again doing a great job for the Tillamook chapter but they could use your help. The banquet on Saturday March 22, costs $50 and includes a prime rib dinner and a year member-

ship to CCA. How else can you help? Donated prizes are needed for the raffle, silent and oral auctions. Donations in the past have ranged from gift baskets, rifles, fishing rods, elk hunts, tools, gift certificates, Blazer tickets, etc. Cash donations are also an easy way of helping the cause. Last year’s event was a huge success as the Tillamook chapter is always one of the top producing banquets in the state and number one in the nation with regards to gross to net ratio. This ensures that the majority of your donation goes directly to affecting the management issues that are having an affect on your opportunity to enjoy recreational angling. Issues like needless hatchery eliminations and reductions and responsible harvest reforms which are important. If you can attend or offer a donation please contact Jack Smith by email at: jackandtina@centurylink. net, by phone 503-8426313, or by mail: P.O. Box 628, Tillamook.

Pool-A-Thon raises over $11,000 by Chelsea Yarnell For the 24th Annual Pool-A-Thon held on February 22 a total of $11,722 was raised to assist the NCRD/ Nehalem Elementary School Swim Program. All proceeds from the Pool-A-Thon go directly towards the School Swim Instruction & Water Safety Awareness Program which impacts the lives of all students, kindergarten through 5th grade, as well as the adaptive swim students of District #56.

At the Pool-A-Thon 69 swimmers swam a total of 2,870 lengths, the equivalent of 40 miles. In addition, ten students who were not available to swim, participated by collecting donations or pledges for the cause. “To the parents and families of these kids,” Sue Dindia-Gray of NCRD Aquatics said, “we are truly appreciative for the time and energy you gave to your child throughout the Pool-AThon. Thanks for being the backbone of the fundraiser.”

“[And] an extended thank-you to all the generous donors,” DindiaGray continued. “By pledging a swimmer, you have validated the importance of this vital program which enhances the lives of over 200 children. We are fortunate to have the support and encouragement of a caring community. The Legacy of the 84-year old Nehalem School Swim Program lives on. All participants in the Pool-A-Thon also enjoyed a party and free swim on March 1, to celebrate

Mooks return home with state trophy by Chelsea Yarnell

Photo by Chelsea Yarnell

Mook fans pack the Gill Coliseum during Tillamook’s game against Seaside on Thursday.

More than just the team on the court by Chelsea Yarnell As a reporter and a new member to the Tillamook community, it’s often easy for me to write as an objective observer. Each week I watch athletes from three different high schools compete in games and competitions. I record the highlights of each game and report the outcome, yet sometimes I miss an underlying aspect. While I can analyze the results of a game, I can’t forget that each team is so much more than the athletes on the court. This past weekend, I was tremendously impressed with the support of Mook fans at the state basketball tournament. At every game, the Cheesemaker student and fan section was more packed and lively than any of the other competitors. And their support didn’t stop just with the game. After La Salle Prep defeated Tillamook 49-29 in the semifinals of the 4A state tournament on Friday night, I found myself gathered with a small group of Mook supporters waiting for the team after their post-game meeting. As each Cheesemaker made their way from the locker room to the group, it was evident that disappointment hung above the team. A few tears were shed. But, I was truly touched by the reaction of family members and friends. Each one consoled the players as they passed by one-by-one. Hugs were exchanged and encouragement was offered. These actions truly demonstrated the support and belief our community has in its high school athletes. So thank you Tillamook community, for the reminder that it’s not just the outcome of the game, but how we support each other after the buzzer goes off.

What a season for the Tillamook Cheesemaker basketball team: a perfect record in the Cowapa League (10-0), 20-7 overall, and a third place finish in the state tournament. “We had excellent leadership from our captains,” Head Coach Greg Werner said of the team at the state tournament. “They played really inspired ball.” Tillamook Seaside

The Mooks began the state tournament with a match up against Cowapa and coastal competitor Seaside on Thursday night in Corvallis at the Gill Coliseum. The Seagulls put up a 13-point lead on the Cheesemakers in the second quarter, but the Mooks truly showed their character and reigned them back in. The largest lead for the Cheesemakers came with a minute to go in the fourth quarter when they were up by ten, just when it mattered the most. Joey Hancock lead the Mooks with 17 points followed by David Waud and Isaac Stellflug with 11 each. Tillamook also showed the depth of their skill by scoring eight points from the bench while the Seagulls only had a single point. The Mooks also pulled off the biggest margin of victory of any team in the quarterfinals of the 4A State Tournament. Number one team Philomath only pulled off a one-point victory over North

Tillamook lost to La Salle 49-29, but went on to place third overall in the state. Valley (44-43) and number two-ranked team La Salle Prep squeaked into the semifinals after defeating Cottage Grove in overtime (61-58). Tillamook La Salle Prep

The win in the quarterfinals advanced the Cheesemakers to the semifinals on Friday night to play the second seeded team in the state, La Salle Prep. Sometimes you can do everything right and it just doesn’t go your way. The Cheesemakers seized shot opportunities, but some of the baskets just wouldn’t go down. Regardless, the Cheesemakers continued to put forth

their best effort till the very end. Baskets from Waud and Hancock kept the Mooks in the game, only left trailing 10-8 at the end of the first quarter. Two missed baskets and a turnover from Tillamook began the second quarter, but Wright grabbed an offensive rebound and put it up to tie the game at 10. Then, the game slowly crept away from the Cheesemaker’s grasp: a three from the Falcons, a missed three from the Mooks, a layup for La Salle, a missed jumper for Tillamook. The Mooks sole two points in the second quarter hindered their hope for a better outcome and they couldn’t come back from it as the Falcons pulled away with the win. Zane Wright led the Mooks with 12 points and four rebounds followed by Waud with seven points and four rebounds as well. La Salle was able to earn 18 points in the paint, while the Mooks only had eight. Tillamook La Grande

A third place trophy signified the end of the Chee-

semaker boys basketball team’s state journey Saturday afternoon. “The talk after the game on Friday was that we’ve come a long way and we needed to finish strong,” Werner said. “I thought they did amazing at that.” The Mooks bounced back after their loss the night before and secured a 52-42 win over La Grande. Stellflug opened the evening with a three off an assist from Wright. Then, La Grande quickly earned seven points, but Joey Hancock got the Mooks back on track with a layup. The Cheesemakers used the momentum and Hancock and Matt Strang each added baskets Fouls shots exchanged at the end of the first quarter left La Grande up 14-13. La Grande maintained their lead through the second quarter, eventually gaining a seven-point lead on the Mooks with 21 seconds to go in the first half. Trent Meyer closed the quarter with a layup off an assist from Strang and the Cheesemaker trail behind 21-26 at halftime. After the break, La Grande continued to put up points, but two layups from Wright and one from Strang tied the game

at 30. La Grand earned two threes, but Strang answered with one of his own, keeping the Mooks within reach. A foul shot from La Grande and a field goal from Wright left La Grande up 3734 at the end of the third. Into the fourth, the Mooks showed they’re the team that can close a game well in their favor. Waud began the quarter with a three-pointer to tie the game at 37. He followed up with a layup after La Grande earned three free throw points. With nearly five minutes to go in the four quarter, La Grande had earned 42 points, but the Mooks shut them down and kept them scoreless for the remainder of the game. Wright, Hancock, Strang, and Stellflug earned the remaining ten points for the Cheesemakers and lead the team to a 52-42 win over La Grande for their third place state victory. Joey Hancock led the team with 13 points while Matt Strang followed closely with 12. “This was a team that was more than the sum of its parts,” Werner said.“We talked about the legacy they would leave behind.”

Spring whale watch week Mar. 22-29 The Oregon coastline is the place to be March 22-29 as gray whales cruise north on their spring migration. Gray whale numbers usually peak about the last week in March and just in time for the Spring Whale Watch Week. Nearly 160 gray whales pass along the coast each day and whale watchers may see their 12-foot blow-or spout--from the shore. Trained volunteers will be at 24 “Whale Watching Spoken Here” sites along the coast 10 a.m.-1 p.m. each day. They will answer questions and share tips about spotting some of the 18,000 gray whales heading from their breeding grounds on Mexico’s Baja coast to their summer feeding grounds in the Bering and Chukchi Seas. Visitors hoping to spot some of these passing giants should come to the coast with binoculars and rain gear and look for the “Whale Watching Spoken Here” signs at the whale watching viewpoints. This time of year most of the whales can be spotted about 1-3 miles off the coastline. Occasionally, whales will search for food or

Tillamook City Council discusses new TRT rates

The council informally discussed the new transient room tax rate proposed by the county commissioners at their June 3 meeting and decided to make it an official agenda item June 17 to try and clarify some of their questions. City Manager Paul Wyntergreen gave the council the rundown, but stated that one of the issues seems to be the new pieces of information that keep coming up. “It’s a lot of information and it is morphing all the time,” he said, adding that the two ordinances on this matter that will be discussed in two public hearings with the commissioners on June 26 and July 10 came in only minutes before the council meeting – making it difficult to review them in much detail. The proposed transient lodging tax (“even the acronyms are shifting as we speak,” Wyntergreen told the council) would appear on the November ballot as a nine percent tax with an eight percent credit back to the cities that already have a TLT of their own. Seventy percent of the money raised would be cycled back into promoting tourism in the county. The other 30 percent has

Early 4th of July parade in downtown Tillamook.

By Joe WraBek

Tillamook has always had parades. Tillamook’s first Dairy Parade was in the 1920s, over a decade before the first National Dairy Month was declared in 1939. (Dairy Month had started in 1937 as National Milk Month.) The Tillamook Dairy Parade as we know it today began in 1957. It had

28 entries and was delayed by rain. (That may have been the last time a parade in Tillamook County was delayed by rain.) The big event that year was the cow milking contest between Tillamook County’s mayors. By 1961, besides the Dairy Parade (which concluded with the crowning of the Dairy Princess), there were milk drinking and ice cream eating contests, a tug-of-war between Lions

Rose City Banjoliers in the 1958 Dairy Parade.

and Kiwanis, and four mayors were still participating in the cow-milking contest. The Tillamook County Creamery Association (TCCA) took over sponsorship of the Dairy Parade in 2003, “to ensure such a historic event was able to continue,” TCCA’s Tori Harm told the Headlight Herald. Today, the Dairy Parade is the third-largest parade in Oregon, and one of the

county’s biggest tourist draws. The parade begins at the Tillamook County Fairgrounds, picks up some of its more than 150 entries along Third Street, and winds through downtown Tillamook. Theme for the 2013 Dairy Parade is “Clowning Around.” The Dairy Parade is followed later that day by the Tillamook County Rodeo, held at the Fairgrounds.

his week (always the third full week of March) is American Chocolate week. I thought my fellow chocoholics would like an excuse to indulge! I read the average American eats 11.7 pounds each year. It’s good to know I am above average at something! Whew! Another Crab Race weekend has come and gone. The weather and crabs were very uncooperative this 29th year. It was great to welcome many familiar faces as well as new participants. The Crab Races are the biggest annual fund raising event for the Garibaldi Lions Club to help provide sight and hearing for those in need within our community. Without the donations from our local merchants, we would not have prizes for the races. We are very appreciative of your generosity and willingness to help. Ev Brown and Jean Watts collected the prizes. Without the crabbers, we would not have had crabs to race or cooked crab to offer on the menu. Thanks to Kelly Barnett from The Spot for donating the cooking. Kelly

oday is gorgeous. Spring on the calendar is March 20, 2014, but I think spring is here right now. In Tillamook some of the early Magnolia trees have already bloomed and the blossoms are on the ground; blown off during the

tion of cover songs. Kathryn will also be honoring us by playing with a full band - Allen Hunter (bass), Zak Borden (mandolin), and Don Henson (percussion). So come and join us for a wonderful evening of music, there is an admission of $12. If you feel like creating something with your hands check out the Hoffman Centers Open Clay Studio on Tuesday and Thursdays at 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Participants can purchase clay, plus there are a number of bisque pieces available to buy and glaze as well. All experience levels are welcome, and a studio host is available to answer questions and offer tips. An adult must accompany children under 12. Studio fees are $2 per hour, which includes glazing and firing up the finished product. Clay is $1 per 2-pound section. For more information you may contact Bruce Phillips at hoffmanclaystudio@gmail. com. I would sincerely like to congratulate the 2014 OMEA 111 Honor Band Participants Madalyn Lowry (trumpet) and Jenna Henderson (clarinet). What a wonderful accomplishment. The March

6 Neah-Kah-Nie High School concert was amazing; what an enjoyable evening hearing the instruments you played and the voices that sang. Thank you for another terrific evening. Mr. Zaugg and Mr. Simpson you have outdone yourselves once again. The audience was able to hear the band play The Secrets of McDougal’s Cave (Ed Huckeby), Suite in Minor Mode (Dmitri Kabalevsky arr.F.Siekmann & R. Oliver), Prelude and Fugue in Bb major (Johannes Sebastian Bach arr.R.Moehlmann) and Creed (William Himes). The Choir entertained us with April in My Mistress’ Face (Thomas Morley), Reveile Toi! (Michal Simpson) and Hosianna Dem Sohne David (George Phillipe Telemann). Thank you once again to the Neah-Kah-Nie High School Band and Choir. Happy Birthday this week to Jay Jackson of Nehalem, Dan Noregaard of Nehalem, Nancy White of Wheeler, Alexander Ball of Portland, Conner Ball of Portland, William Johnston of Hope British Columbia, Pam Holmes of Seaside and Happy 2nd Birthday to Sophia Brandon of Mist.

and Dave Smith from The Cannery worked together to ensure we had crab, even though they are scarce right now. Many thanks to Ed and Emily Dunn and Doug Creasy who donated crab for this event. I was blessed to have hardworking volunteers help out. Carolee North and John, Billie and Abby Bowles helped create the festive mood and came back to tear down. The US Coast Guard was on hand to move the heavy track and netting back and forth, along with David Olson and Virgil Loudon from the Port of Garibaldi. The crew from the city brought over the silhouettes and whisked them away at the end. We also had help from Jay Taylor, Ev Brown, Robert Harmes, Harold Stern, Patty Moore and Rick and Donn Wagner. Steve Rounds designed this year’s buttons and flyers with the flaming crab. Val Bailey worked her magic to provide some amazing food again this year. I am most grateful to Laurie Wandell and Kathie Lou Reames who showed up to help prep on Friday. Gene Tish and Bud and Linda Shattuck lent a hand Friday, too. Also helping in the kitchen: Billie, Johnny and Abby Bowles, Carolee North, Laurie Wandell, Agnes Koehmstedt, Priscilla Brown, Linda Richard, Robert Craig, Patty Moore, Ladonna Perigo, Cindy Scroggins, Terri Southwick, and Sue McCarthy. Volunteers who sold beverage script: Mary Mathews,

Kathie Lou Reames, Patty Godfrey, and Veronica Garske. Darrell Spacek from Nehalem Bay Winery was assisted by Jerry Bartolomucci. Mike Franciscone set up the beer from Clatsop Distributing. Raffle tickets were sold by Marty Franciscone, Jack Graves (he also donated a painting), Sheila Flowers, Judy Miller, and Veronica Garske. Judy Miller really got those tickets for both raffles going! Darrell Spacek won the 39” flat screen TV with sound bar and Sheila Flowers won the painting. Greeting people at the front desk were Pete and Nancy Betich, Nora Coutant, Paul and Maria Klay, Jean Watts, Dan and Lori Slatter, Maxine Carlson, and Pat Schachner. Alcohol Monitors/Security were “Big John” Foulk, Bob Bushman, Bill Fidler, Harold Stern, and Gordy and Ben Southwick. Lori Craig, Vince Richard, Terry Kandle and Paul Schachner kept things clean out in the hall. Laurice Meyers was the Track Announcer, Ev Brown was on “Prize Patrol”, Sam Rowland was the Track Secretary assisted by her daughter, Tim Sutfin was the Track Steward assisted by Jay, Gary and Ryan. Robert Harmes and Jeff Coon hauled crab back and forth. Thanks again to all who supported the event and worked so hard to make a difference. It’s hard to have a bad attitude if your heart is filled with gratitude!

wind and rainstorms of last week. Seen also in yards in Tillamook are the early pink Rhododendrons and early pink Camelias; also losing the blossoms as fast as they bloom. The skunk cabbage in the swamps and gutters is bright yellow and showy. Along the Bayocean Road I see the Elderberry bushes have leaved out; no blooms yet.  The Blackberry and Salmonberry vines have leafed out and the Willows are showing signs of white buds. We are in for a week of dry weather. Those of you who didn’t get the yards mowed, looks like you will get another chance this week. With all

that rain last week and sunshine this week, the grass is going to grow fast.   My favorite TV program “Dancing with the Stars” is going to start again on Mondays. It gets better every year. I am looking forward to seeing the new dancers, as viewers will get to choose who the contestants will be dancing with. Nea-Rock Garden Club will meet at Sue and Steffen’s house at noon on March 19, 2014 for a potluck and slide show. Leave the PUD parking lot at 11:45 a.m. if you are carpooling. We will walk around in the yard at Aalykke’s and see what is in bloom.





ach spring I watch for one sunny afternoon when we who are neighbors on Parkway Drive all are outside at once working in our yards. Several lawnmowers roar in unison, yard debris accumulate in steamy piles, and we in the neighborhood greet each other with smiles and waves as we work. This year the spontaneous work party happened in time for the return of Mourning Doves to our neck of the woods. I heard their call for the first time again just this morning. Thank you to Joani Moore for word that South Tillamook County Library Club will sell Books, Baked Goods and Plants from 9-3 this Saturday, March 22 at the Central Building (next to the Post Office) in Pacific City. Members can shop at 8 a.m., and we can join the Club at the sale. Offerings include a quilt donated by the Tuesday Stitchers to be raffled. Questions? Call 503-965-3681. Join thousands of vol-

unteers who flock to the Oregon Coast for SOLV’s Spring Beach Clean-up, happening from 10-1 p.m. also this Saturday, March 22. Register online at or call Kathleen Boyle at 503844-9571, extension 332.

The perfect coastal shrub


ote to faithful readers: To answer your questions… no, I did not forget to talk about a useful native perennial in my last column. I just wanted to discuss results of the cold weather before it became outdated information. So here we go: the native perennial for March is the Pacific wax myrtle (Myrica californica). This is a perfect shrub for coastal gardens as it easily tolerates salt spray and winds. It can be grown as a small tree at eight feet tall or as a large shrub at 10 to 14 feet tall by about 10 feet wide, depending on growing conditions. Size and shape would depend on the winds, with the windier sites seeing wax myrtles growing lower and more spread out. Where wind is not an issue, the plants will take the shape of a bush or tree with multiple but upright trunks. At full maturity and in perfect conditions they have the potential to reach 33 feet tall, but this shrub is easily kept under control with timely pruning on the branch tips. The leaves are evergreen, toothed, and spear-shaped - but not really pointed with the leaves at the tip of the branch appearing to grow in a swirl. These pretty, narrow leaves are a glossy dark green on top with a duller, lighter green


on the underside. They are also slightly aromatic when crushed. This plant would be a good choice to serve as the “bones” of a perennial garden, toward the back of the beds. Or use it as an informal, clipped hedge to block the wind or unsightly views. Pacific wax myrtle has a moderately fast growth rate with the most growth during the spring and summer. It will easily fill in areas. Flowers of the Pacific wax myrtle are yellowgreen clusters on new growth, and rather inconsequential, but the purple, waxy-coated single-seed berries (or “nutlets”) are one of our local birds’ favorite fall foods. Uneaten seeds will generally fall by the beginning of winter. But the seeds have low vigor so you won’t be troubled by little wax myrtles sprouting all through the yard and garden. Bark of wax myrtles is smooth and dark grey or light brown on the surface. Under the surface, the bark

is a dark brownish-red. Early pioneers used the fruit’s waxy pulp to make “scented” candles. They also often used the wax from the berries in making soup. Fresh or dried berries could be used to create a maroon-purple dye. Pacific wax myrtle can be found naturally on the coast from southern California to northern Washington State. It thrives on wet conditions in the winter but is drought-tolerant during the summers, making it perfect for Tillamook County gardens. Wax myrtle has a preference for full sun in open areas, but grows quite well in light to moderate shade, although it won’t reach its maximum heights in those shaded areas. It is not particular about soil. It is a long-lived plant, which is another reason it would be good as the bones of a garden. One potential drawback of wax myrtle is that it does not like colder temps below 22 degrees. If we have more winters like this last one, that could be an issue. But planting it in a protected area would be one way of insuring success. This is one of my favorite native plants, although I do not have one in my garden for space reasons. But since I am able to enjoy it on my walks through the local parks, I don’t mind not having one of my own.

o you smell spring in the air? Well, when Solve Beach Cleanup comes to town this month, you’ll know it’s really here. This Saturday, March 22, be sure to drop by the Lions Club to get everything you need to help with the beach cleanup. Then keep in mind afterwards they will be serving lunch to all the volunteers. This is also a good time to remind you that our local business, R Sanitary, donates a dumpster for this event at no cost. I truly believe in supporting our local businesses, because they do so much for the community that you will never know. Also, did you know the Lions Club loans out wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, toilet risers and bathtub chairs? Contact a Lion when you are in need of one of these items. The Meals for Seniors breakfast is coming up Saturday, March 29. Be sure to mark this date. And also be sure to stop by Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 11:30 a.m. for a wonderful, healthy, home cooked meal. They offer meals not only for those who are able to make it to the meal-site, but to the homebound in the Garibaldi and Rockaway Beach area. A $4 donation is requested, not required, for each meal. And if you are looking to volunteer somewhere, this

im and I took my son in law and three grandsons to The Landing for dinner while they were visiting us last week and we had the pleasure of meeting their new waitress Angie Johnson. Angie recently moved to Tillamook and says she is on a mission to have many conversations with the cook there, Nolan. Seems Nolan is the quiet type and Angie is sure she can put the pressure on him to get him to be more talkative. Good luck on your quest Angie, and let us know how you are doing. On March 23 “FRESH” will be holding their Grand Opening from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. They hope to have live music, juggling, pony rides and other entertainment. So don’t miss it and while you are there you can buy your fresh veggies and fruit or have lunch or a latte or smoothie. Sounds like fun so I hope I see you there. On a sad note is the passing of our own Bud Gienger. Bud died March 4 of heart complications. He was such a kind and loving man with a very giving heart shown by his many volunteer activities. I always ran into him at the post office and his smile always found a special place in my heart. He will be missed by everyone in the community and many prayers for comfort go out to his wife Helen and his extended family and close friends. Blessed are those that have known him. John Sollman informed me of another passing. Condolences to Tracy Nuzum and Vicki Mintz on the passing of their father, Glen Wadley. Glen had suffered a stroke about April 2013, and he has

NOTES FROM THE COAST is a great place for that. St Mary’s by the Sea Hall at 275 S Pacific, Rockaway Beach is the location site for Meals for Seniors. Stop by and check them out. The “hugest” of all events at Rockaway Beach happens in four months. July 4th is a day that our 100 percent all volunteer department puts on what is known as ‘one of the best on our nation’s coastline’ fireworks displays. These volunteers are amazing. Show your gratitude by donating to the fire department or purchasing one of their T shirts or sweatshirts at almost any outdoor event in town. The months between now and then will pass quickly, and I, for one, can’t wait. The Frugal Crow Decoration Contest is coming up soon. It is a fun event in our town. And the best part of this contest is that the proceeds from this event support the awesome Meals for Seniors Program in Rockaway Beach. The contest in 2013 brought in just short of $1,800 for them. The Auction and Party Gala date has been changed to April 12 at St Mary’s by the Sea Hall. This is my “Chief Ed sez” portion of my column. Officers are conducting traffic emphasis patrols around our school zones, school bus stops and in neighborhoods. Also, they have “Be Safe Be Seen” reflective armbands at the station for you, or to put on your bike, strollers, wheelchairs or pets. And be sure to use outdoor lighting to discourage unwanted entries. “Light is your friend when it comes to deterring crime!” “If you’re doing your best, you won’t have any time to worry about failure.” That’s Rockaway Beach “Sugar Coated!”

been in a care center since. But his general health declined recently, and he passed on in spite of efforts to save him at the hospital. Glen was a model railroader, and had a great garden railroad. I never saw him without his engineer hat. I enjoyed talking model railroads with him whenever I saw him at the post office. But now, Glen has gone on to that great big garden model railroad in the sky. Fire Chief Darrell Griffith reported that 14 volunteers racked up 90 hours of standby time during the snowstorm, and that the department responded to 28 calls during that time. Darrell added that he supported Brian Bettis’ decision not to sand the roads. Brian did not want to expose his people to unnecessary risks during the storm. Darrell also reported that he activated a command post at the fire station during the snow storm, but that he had difficulty contacting the Map Your Neighborhood people. He said he would prepare some instructions and laminate them, so that they will be available for future emergencies. The Planning Commission, at its Feb. 19 meeting discussed medical marijuana dispensaries or facilities, and agreed that it needed the finished legislation before it could review zoning issues. The commission recommended to the council that it place a moratorium of six months on approving requests to establish a medical marijuana dispensary or facility, with the option to extend the moratorium if appropriate modifications to the Development Ordinance and Comprehensive Plan cannot be completed within that time. The council, meeting in special session on Feb. 28, adopted Ordinance 658, establishing a moratorium of 180 days on establishing any medical marijuana dispensary or facility within the jurisdictional area of Bay City, and declaring an emergency. Have a great week and see you around town!

One thing I didn’t count on I

’ve noticed the phrase one thing I didn’t count on seems to be a reoccurring theme in my life. One thing I didn’t count on is how similar Abraham Lincoln and I are. We both have a good sense of humor. He used to slap his knee, laughing. He and I started out poor. I never wrote on a shovel in front of a fire or anything, although I thought that would have been so cool. And when I say poor, I don’t mean I missed any meals. I had just enough to envy my best friend Jack who had better hair, skin, teeth, car and girl friend, Joyce. Jack knew I had a crush on his Chevy. Although I never told Joyce, I think she suspected. A few examples of things I didn’t count on are how little cayenne it takes to make chili inedible. How a cardboard flap is not strong enough to hold a new, boxed hot water heater at the top of a flight of stairs. An outboard motor will not go into a garage in the upright position. If my father got overtime, we moved from poor to mid-

SCHUBERT MOORE 503-965-3681

dle class for that week, and so I was taught to stretch my dollars. He did everything himself. If you didn’t he thought it showed weakness of character. We didn’t build our own furniture or anything like I’m sure the Lincoln’s did, but we changed the oil in our cars and tuned them up. Lincoln would have done his own tune-ups if there had been cars. I’m sure if there hadn’t been a White House, he would have thrown one together. The problem with this line of logic is I’m not Lincoln or my father, for that matter. Neighbors can tell when I’m finished tuning up my car when they see the tow truck arrive.

When I finally graduated I didn’t make a quiet entrance into the middle class. I didn’t slip into the suburbs without fanfare, going to a local store and having a set of furniture delivered one afternoon. Oh, no. That would have shown weakness of character. I convinced my wife, even though I couldn’t build our own furniture, we could pick up an entire houseful cheaper bidding at auction. One thing I didn’t count on was the affect adrenaline and beer has on the bidding process. Another thing I didn’t count on was how being nervous affects my memory. I took Joani to meet friends. As we approached the front door I realized I couldn’t remember her name. I was unperturbed, thinking, it will come to me. I just married her. At the front door I said, I’d like you to meet my wife.... After a long pause, Joani said, Joani. I doubt Lincoln ever forgot Mary’s name. Can you believe we just celebrated our 32nd anniversary? Or maybe it was our

42nd. And then there was the laundry massacre. Even though Joani does the bills and I do the laundry, she’s particular about her blouses. I had barbecued ribs coming off the grill, people arriving, and permanent press coming out of the dryer. My daughter-in-law volunteered to take the laundry. Locking up at midnight, I was tired and so didn’t think when I saw the laundry hanging near the ceiling where I’d never seen it before. My daughter-in-law had hung it on the garage door track. One thing I didn’t count on was how long it took me to understand what was happening when I punched the button. As the garage door started to close, it marched the laundry along the ceiling and pulled it off a cliff down the greasy track where it ended up crumpled in a pile on the floor. Abraham Lincoln would have been no help since he never had a garage door opener, but one thing I could have counted on -- he would have been slapping his knee.

Todd Miller reads from latest book at the Hoffman Center April 17 Todd Miller will read from his book Border Patrol Nation: Dispatches from the Frontline of Homeland Security at the Hoffman Center at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 17. Please note that the event is on Thursday evening, rather than on the usual third Saturday of the month. Border Patrol Nation shows in stark relief how the entire country has become a militarized border zone, including cities that don’t immediately come to mind like Ft. Lauderdale and Miami, FL, Buffalo, Rochester, and Niagara Falls, NY, Detroit and Port Huron, MI, Hilton Head, SC, Derby Line, VT, among many others. In fast-paced prose, Miller sounds an alarm as he chronicles the changing landscape, speaking with the people most involved, from border patrol agents to government contractors to vulnerable immigrant communities. He combines these firsthand encounters with careful research to expose a vast and booming industry for military grade weapons, high-end surveillance technology, and prisons. While politicians and corporations reap substantial profits, the experiences of millions of men, women, and children point to staggering humanitarian consequences

that can no longer be ignored. “In Border Patrol Nation, Todd Miller exposes the underpinnings of this ever-expanding surveillance state —military contractors that rake in fat profits and bloated government agencies that keep extending their tentacles while the core of our neighborhoods withers from neglect. Miller reveals the humanity of both the victims and the victimizers, and the inhumanity of the system. A fantastic book.”—Medea Benjamin, co-founder of Code Pink and author of Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control Following Miller’s reading and Q&A, we’ll have our popular Open Mic where up to nine local writers will read five minutes of their original work. Admission for the evening is $5. The Writers’ Series Reading Group will meet the Tuesday prior to Todd’s reading, April 15, 6:30 p.m. at the Manzanita Library. Everyone is invited to bring a friend to both events. The event is a program of the Hoffman Center and will be held at the Hoffman Center (across from Manzanita Library at 594 Laneda Ave.) Further information is available at online or contact Vera Wildauer, vwildauer@
