Anna Welsh in custody

Tillamook voted ‘America’s Best’ at U.S. championship cheese contest


Anna Welsh of Nehalem is back in jail for violation of her release agreement. In a random search of Welch’s residence, Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office Anna Welsh detectives found electronic devices with access to the internet, cell phones and unprotected computers, as well as alcohol. Detectives found that Welsh’s residence had wireless internet access, and at her disposal were a cell phone, a smart phone, a Kindle, Netflix, and a laptop computer. Detectives found opened bottles of alcohol in the garage. Welsh’s release agreement specifically prohibits her use of cell phones or any electronic device with access to the internet, and prohibits her from consuming or possessing alcohol.

Last week we reported incorrectly that Anna Welsh is under third-party supervision to her husband; in fact she is under third party supervision to her parents, Josef and Barbara Blue, and to her in-laws, Jim W. Welsh, James A. Welsh and Nellie Welsh. We reported Alan Joynson was named the Inspirational Leader of the Year by the Oregon Restaurant & Lounge Association. The proper name is the Oregon Restaurant & Lodging Association. We apologize for the errors.

A recent event for the homeless in Tillamook County served 64 homeless people and many of their pets. Homeless Connect, put on by CARE, Inc. of Tillamook, offered the local homeless population a hot meal, free clothes and camping supplies, a hair cut, immunizations, referrals, and free veterinary services for their pets. United Paws partnered with veterinarian Dr. Anita Johanson to offer basic health care for the pets of homeless people, including shots, treatments for fleas and ear mites, and low or no-cost appointments for spay and neutering and other veterinary care as needed. Homeless folks without transportation were offered transportation to and from the clinic, because getting there can be a barrier to services. Dr. Johanson and her assistant, Shannon Ayers, volunteered their time, and United Paws donated vaccines, medicines, collars, leashes and pet food to distribute to the homeless.

CARE provides services to the homeless, and this year, for the first time, part of the intake application includes questions about pets. A homeless mother brought her children and their dogs to the Homeless Connect pet clinic, where Yodel and Chico received shots and had their nails trimmed. A homeless couple brought their dog, Vanessa in, for shots and a nail trim as well. Quinn Pender brought her banty hen, Precious for a check up. Precious also received a nail trim. Last year 415 homeless people (267 households) were counted in Tillamook County. Homelessness by definition includes sleeping out of doors, in shelters, sleeping in cars and trailers without utilities, as well as "couch surfing," moving from place to place, staying with family and friends. Of those 415 homeless people identified, many were children, some were senior citizens, and a lot of them had pets. At the time of the countywide homeless count, Quinn Pender was among the homeless. She spent the winter living beneath a

bridge in a tent with her chicken, Precious. Quinn rescued Precious after a barnyard attack by a rooster left Precious crippled, with an injured spine. Precious can't walk more than a few steps before she collapses. Quinn carries the bird swaddled in a cloth, tucked into her jacket. Precious was among the reasons Quinn opted to live in a tent rather than seek refuge in a homeless shelter for the winter. Tillamook County does not have any homeless shelters, but Quinn could have gone to a women's shelter in Portland, but she couldn't have taken Precious. "I'm all she has," said Quinn. "She would die without me. And she's all I have, too. She keeps me company. She keeps me from hurting myself. I need something to love." Quinn, too, has an injured spine. She has severe scoliosis, which bends her over and causes her severe pain. Without a back brace to hold her upright she cannot walk without a walker.


Tillamook County Creamery Association received first place recognition for their Vintage White Extra Sharp Cheddar, Sharp Yellow Cheddar and Colby Jack at the 17th biennial United States Championship Cheese Contest® held in Green Bay, Wisconsin last week. Adding to their collection of first place titles and among heightened competition, all three cheeses were voted ‘America’s Best’ in their respective categories for superior taste and quality. Naturally aged over two years, Tillamook Vintage White Extra Sharp Cheddar has a creamy, crumbling texture which pairs well with fruit and wine. Each batch of Tillamook Sharp Yellow Cheddar is aged for at least 9 months to perfect its sharp, bold taste. Tillamook Colby Jack is a veteran on the winners stand previously earning ‘America’s Best Colby Jack’ at the 2011 U.S. Championship Cheese Contest® and has a fresh and mild flavor. “Awards like these remind us why we work so hard to create consistent, quality products, and it is an honor to receive such acknowledgement,” says Tillamook’s VP of Sales and Marketing, Jay Allison. “We are dedicated to fulfilling the increased demand from our consumers for the highest quality, best tasting cheese, and that commitment is our driving force as our brand continues to grow.” This year, the U.S. Championship Cheese Contest® had a record-breaking total of over 1,700 entries, up 100 from 2011. Out of a perfect score of 100, Tillamook Vintage White Extra Sharp Cheddar was voted ‘America’s Best’ receiving a 99.45 in the Aged 2 Years or Longer Cheddar Category. Tillamook Sharp Yellow Cheddar scored 98.65 earning ‘America’s Best’ in the 6 Months to 1 Year Sharp Cheddar Category. Tillamook Colby Jack was also voted ‘America’s Best’ with a 99.40 in the Marbled Curd Cheese Category. For more information on Tillamook’s award-winning cheese, visit

The Tillamook Adventist School recently hosted a pilot program for family fitness, the Super Fit Family Challenge, sponsored by a grant from Adventist Health. Third and fourth graders and their families were invited to participate in the 8 week program, which provided a healthy low-fat kid-friendly dinner with recipes to take home, a brief lesson on nutrition and healthy lifestyle habits, followed by family fun in the gym, where everyone took to the floor and played active games together. Moms and dads and kids had a blast playing games like dodge ball and basketball together in the gym, and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed it. “I think it’s very healthy to take part in teaching kids about fitness,” said Billy Cloud. “The best way to teach is by example.” Cloud and his wife Rachel took the Super Fit Family Challenge with their kids Brodie and Josie. “It’s good family time,” said Rachel. “How often do you get out and play with your kids?

Last week I played basketball for the first time in years, and my kids loved it. It was great.” The Clouds report that they’re exercising more and they’ve changed some of their eating habits as a result of the course. “We’re buying whole grain breads and pastas now, and more fruits and vegeta-

bles,” said Rachel. Paulette Rush and her daughter Emily also took the Super Fit Family Challenge. “This is a wonderful program,” said Paulette. “I have more energy, I’ve lost weight, and last week when we got here Emily asked me, ‘Want to race?’ And we ran into the school together. It’s a small thing, but that wouldn’t have happened before.”

Nestucca Valley School District Board approved a 2013-14 school year calendar that resumes a five day school week for students. The district had adopted the four day school week four years ago as a cost saving measure amidst a budget crisis. It reduced costs largely by reducing work hours for Classified Employees, the Bus Drivers, Cooks, and Educational Assistants who are necessary on student contact days. “The calculation is that the cost is about $100,000, but the district’s circumstances have changed,” Superintendent Kathryn Hedrick told The Headlight Herald. Local educators and the School Board consider the price tag worth the pay off in a better education for our kids.” The long school day was hard on younger students; weekends with less structure made retention more difficult. These factors probably contributed to the downward trend of State Test scores in recent years. Superintendent Hedrick explained that although educators “cannot prove that the

longer days affected the test scores, we do at least know they happened at the same time.” The approved calendar has 168 student contact days split evenly between semesters. School will start on Tuesday, September 3 and finish for the year on Friday, June 6. Significant breaks include the full week of Thanksgiving, two weeks for winter holidays, and spring break. School days will be shortened with start times slightly later and ending times slightly earlier than before. In other business, Ms. Hedrick announced that Misty Wharton, working on special assignment as Interim Principal after Nick Gelbard’s recent retirement, has been hired to continue as Nestucca Elementary School Principal for 201314. The School Board approved purchase of a 72 seat school bus for delivery this August. It is $4,000 more expensive than its most recent predecessor due to having a bigger battery and alternator and the expense of compliance with new E.P.A. regulations.

Disaster Fair set for March 30 The Emergency Volunteer Corps of Nehalem Bay and the Nehalem Bay Fire and Rescue District will hold their third Disaster Fair Sat., March 30 at the fire station in Bayside Gardens. The fair, with the theme of “Be Prepared, Not Scared,” will run from 1 to 4 p.m. Parking will be available at Covenant and St. Catherine’s churches, Ron’s Lighthouse, and the TPUD workshop -- all on Hwy. 101. Shuttle vans will be provided. Tillamook County is prone to natural disasters. The Dec. 2007 storm knocked out power to homes and businesses for five or more days. Slides and downed trees blocked roads in all directions. Superstorm Sandy hammered the East Coast last October, and that area is still recovering and rebuilding months later. As serious as those storms were, their impacts would pale in comparison to “The Big One” – a large earthquake and resulting tsunami starting from the Cascadia Subduction Zone just 70 miles off the Oregon Coast. Witness what happened to northeast Japan in March 2011. The same thing could happen here. The last subduction zone earthquake and tsunami in our area occurred in 1700. There is a significant chance of another one occurring in the next 50 years. The State of Oregon just released “The Oregon Resilience Plan”* which outlines the impact of such a disaster on the state’s infrastructure – roads, electricity, water, sewer, and healthcare facilities. Restoring those services will take much longer on the coast than in the valley. The coastal damage will be more severe, but the larger valley population will draw more relief efforts. The reasons for preparedness and self-reliance on the coast are evident and startling. According to the report, restoring drinking water and sewer services in the valley could take a month to a year. On the coast, it could take one to three years. The Disaster Fair will

Lessons from Sandy The following are ten of the 46 lessons learned by Frantz Ostmann and published on-line in his oft-reposted “Living Through Sandy.”* It was released Nov. 17, 2012, 20 days after Superstorm Sandy hit New York City and New Jersey. 1. The excitement and coolness wears off around day three. 2. You are never really prepared to go weeks without power, heat, water, etc. 5. If you do not have water stored up you are in trouble. A couple of cases of bottled water is “NOT” water storage 6. You should have as much fuel as water – propane, gas, kerosene, firewood, and fire-starter. 9. I was surprised how quickly normal social behavior goes out the window. I am not talking about someone cutting in line at the grocery store.

include presentations on lessons learned from Superstorm Sandy, featuring Red Cross volunteers who were there; damage assessment; and emergency communications with hand-held family radios. (Locals who already have FRS radios should bring them to the fair.) There will also be information on home water treatment, sanitation, local evacuation shelters, emergency supply kits, Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT), Map Your Neighborhood, Medical Reserve Corps, and the Red Cross. Children’s activities will

20. It takes a lot of firewood to keep a fire going all day and into the evening for heat. 23. Some people shut down in an emergency. There is nothing that you can do about that. 24. Your town, no matter how small is entirely dependent on outside sources of everything. If supply trucks stop rolling in due to road damage, gas shortages or anything else you could be without for a long time. 28. Although neighbors can be a great resource, they can also be a huge drain on your emergency storage. You need to know how you are going to handle that. 39. Small solar charging gadgets will keep you in touch. Most work pretty well it seems. *To read the full list, go to http://emergency.nehale

Althea Rizzo from Oregon Emergency Management talks about disaster preparedness at the Tsunami Road Show in Rockaway Beach.

Tsunami roadshow in Rockaway BY JOE WRABEK

A small crowd – 30 people – attended the “Tsunami Roadshow” presentation Thursday evening, March 14 in the NeahKah-Nie High School cafeteria. The presentation featured Dr. Althea Rizzo from Oregon Emergency Management, who was on a 2-week tour of the Oregon coast, disseminating the latest tsunami information and urging – again – preparation for a disaster that’s guaranteed to happen, though no one’s precisely sure when. Rizzo was appearing with county emergency management director Gordon McCraw and Cecilia Pratt, the Red Cross “readiness specialist” based in Newport. Rizzo was spending three days in Tillamook County; she’d been on the radio, and been interviewed by the Headlight Herald, earlier that day. The pending disaster is a “mega-thrust earthquake” (the term was coined by the Discovery Channel) in the 600-mile “subduction zone” stretching from northern California to British Columbia, where one of the earth’s geologic plates is trying to slide underneath another. “It moves at the rate your fingernails grow,” Rizzo said. “But it gets stuck. And energy builds up.” Right now, the plate is stuck along the entire 600-mile length, she said. “And that’s a good thing. If it wasn’t stuck, we’d be having an earthquake,” she said. There is a 37 percent chance of a “mega-thrust” earthquake in the next 50 years, Rizzo told the audience, but the science isn’t exact. “We haven’t had a subduction zone earthquake here since we’ve had the science,”

she said. Those earthquakes have happened in the past as close as 190 years apart, and as far apart as 1,200 years. The last one was on Jan. 26, 1700. (The exact date is known because it was recorded in Japan. Japanese authorities documented an “orphan tsunami” – a tsunami without an earthquake – on that date. That’s the reverse of what happened here two years ago, when the Oregon coast saw a tsunami caused by an earthquake in Japan.) “We learned a lot from the Japanese tsunami,” Rizzo said. “They underbuilt their environment,” she suggested, planning for a 7.9 quake (the same as the last one they’d had) that ended up being a 9.0. They assumed that a smaller section of their coast would be affected than actually happened, too, she said. Initial estimates of the severity of the quake were too low – “They’re always low,” she said – but by the time accurate information was available, “people weren’t listening any more.” They didn’t evacuate far enough, she said. On the plus side, while 22,600 people died – mostly by drowning – “6.8 million people lived there,” Rizzo said. “What helped is communities that practiced drills. People followed other people evacuating,” she said. “We can’t prevent an earthquake,” Rizzo noted. “But we can prepare for one.” She recommended “hardening infrastructure” – reinforcing bridges, for example, so they would have a better chance of surviving an earthquake. Relocate critical facilities outside the inundation zone, she urged; retrofit existing buildings, and

make sure new ones are built to “the most robust standards.” Evacuation routes need to be better marked, too, she said, so they’re easier to find and follow in the dark. Rizzo reiterated the point she’d made in her interview with the Headlight Herald, that relief efforts from the outside world would be a while in coming. Not only will east-west routes between the coast and Willamette Valley be impassable, but the metropolitan areas of Portland and Seattle are in the “impact zone” of the quake. “Resources will go where the people are,” she said. “And that is not the coast.” Following Rizzo’s presentation, the Red Cross’s Cecilia Pratt distributed brochures, and demonstrated how to pack an emergency “go-kit.” Everyone received either a “go pack” or “go cup” (the latter are smallsized “go-kits” one can keep in a car or office) – the audience was small enough so there was one for everybody. Most attendees left with anywhere from one to several “Meals Ready to Eat,” or MREs, the military-style prepared meals that have become a staple of disaster relief. Pratt urged people in the audience to “make a plan, make a kit, and stay informed.” She encouraged people to be involved in their communities, as fire or police volunteers, Red Cross, ham radio operators, or Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) members. Rizzo left Friday for Lincoln County; she was scheduled to deliver a “Tsunami Roadshow” presentation at the Driftwood Library in Lincoln City Friday afternoon.

Emily Rush, who is in fourth grade, loved playing basketball with her mom and the other parents, and she was inspired to start a petition to organize a soccer team. She has over a hundred signatures on her petition. Her mom reported that Emily is getting more sleep since they started the course together, “she’s resting better because she’s tired.� Twelve of the 14 families in Mrs. Stacy Kemmerer’s class participated in the program. In the first week they were weighed and measured; while this was not a diet program, the goal was to improve eating habits and increase activity. Their efforts paid off on the scales: upon completion the group had lost a combined 30 pounds. But the benefits were more than numbers on the scale, parents and children both reported that they loved the time in the gym together. When asked their favorite thing about the 8 week program, every child polled said, “Gym time!� Parents said they‘re eating better when they‘re not in class, and they‘re exercising more than they used to out of class, and they‘re doing it together.

Ginny Gabel from Tillamook County General Hospital led the led the meals and education portion of the program, and Michelle Jenck led the fitness activities. Parents received the book: ‘Super Sized Kids -- How to rescue Your Child from the Obesity Threat.’ Children received a ‘Kids in the Kitchen’ cookbook, full of fun and healthy recipes for youngsters. Ginny Gabel and Michelle Jenck both considered the pilot program a big success. “This is my passion,� said Jenck. “I really want people to see how much fun fitness can be.� Gabel said, “I really like that this was family oriented and family driven. Research shows that as kids gain weight their self-esteem and their grades go down. Poor nutrition and lack of exercise result in lower grades. What better way to address the issue than to make it fun, and do it as a family?� Gabel hopes that the Super Fit Family Challenge will be offered next year in more schools. “This pilot study has shown us what works and what doesn’t. I hope we’ll be able to share it with the wider community in the future.�

anthropology from Oregon State University. She became interested in emergency management after the Indonesian tsunami of 2004 and Hurricane Katrina in 2005. “Thousands of people died,� she said. “I saw a role for education.� She calls her role “disaster anthropology. It’s not a disaster unless there’s people involved,� she said. She was the Lincoln County tsunami coordinator before going to work for the state. “I moved to the coast one month before the 2007 storm,� she said. In the Big One – the “subduction zone� tsunami triggered by an offshore earthquake – relief will come, she said, but it’s expected to take a while. “It will take a week for the Navy to have big ships sitting off the coast,� she said. “We’ll be having helicopters coming in from Eastern Oregon. We’re assuming there will be lots of isolated pockets of people.� Rizzo urged people to “fend

for each other� (rather than fending for themselves). Cannon Beach started a program of “buddy plans,� storing emergency supplies at the homes of neighbors who were outside the inundation zone. “It helps create community ties, too,� she noted. “Start with a seed group,� she said (the CERT organization in North County started with a Map Your Neighborhood effort); “have a potluck, then another.� Have some preparations, Rizzo urged. “You can do this on the cheap,� she emphasized. She assembled her own emergency kit for just a few dollars, finding most of the items at thrift stores. Emergency food supplies can be assembled piecemeal: “When you go to the grocery store, get an extra can of tuna fish and stash it away. Keep doing that.� The earthquake could hit in the middle of the night, Rizzo noted. “So keep an old pair of shoes, a flashlight, and gloves

by the bed, just in case.� You may be evacuating with broken glass on the floor, she cautioned. “Practice your route.� She urged getting a NOAA weather radio. “They’re good for all sorts of things.� Both Rizzo and McCraw lauded Tillamook County residents’ disaster-readiness efforts. “One of the strengths you have here is much more cohesive communities,� Rizzo said. “Your small population size is a benefit,� she suggested. “You’re spread out more.� Towns are regularly cut off from each other and the outside world by floods, landslides, and the like. Isolation is a “common theme,� Rizzo noted. Rizzo leaves Friday to take the “Tsunami Roadshow� to Lincoln County. She’ll be giving her “tsunami prep talk� at the Driftwood Library in Lincoln City Friday, March 15 at 4 p.m.

anything, and I'm not so good with numbers. I can't get a job at Marie Mills, because I'm not retarded enough. My IQ is 86. I can read. I just can't take care of myself." Quinn says that she applied to receive vocational and residential services as a developmentally disabled person, however, she does not qualify. Her IQ is considered borderline, or low-normal. She does qualify for disability income, health care and food stamps. She has a little income: $700 a month. She has found it difficult to pay rent and utilities and buy what she needs on $700 a month. She has medications to buy and chicken feed, and she


spends more on food than what she receives in food stamps because she can't cook, so she buys prepared foods, which are more expensive. "When people look down on me for panhandling and collecting bottles and cans," Quinn said, "I wish I could tell them what it's like to be me."

The power of Facebook "I was whining on Facebook about being homeless," Quinn said in an interview this week. "One of my Facebook friends said she had a friend in Coos Bay who had a trailer she wanted to get rid of." Through a series of Facebook connections and the generosity of relative strangers, a

woman Quinn had never met in Coos Bay gave Quinn a travel trailer, and someone else transported it to Tillamook for her. Quinn now has "my own home, where no one can tell me I can't have Precious. I can even have the title in my own name, except I don't know how to do it." Quinn and Precious are settling in to their new digs. They have a roof over their heads, electric heat, and the RV park has bathroom and shower facilities. "Now all I need is a job." Asked what kind of work she would like to do, Quinn answered, "I would like to be a spokesperson for people with fetal alcohol syndrome. I don't know how to do that, but I think I would be good at it."

TBCC and Oregon STAFF EDITORIAL Coast Community College Student Success The case for a BY LUKE KRALIK TBCC Librarian

Recently TBCC faculty and staff, along with their colleagues at Oregon Coast Community College, participated in an “Achieving the Dream” Data Summit. The purpose of the summit was to review any statistical evidence that would help shed light on why students were not successful. These statistics required educators at both institutions to ask some tough questions about what they do and how they do it. New students enroll at Tillamook Bay Community College every term. While their stories and backgrounds are different, there is one thing that all the students have in common. They all have a tremendous amount of hope. Hope for the future, hope for advancement; hope to make a better life for themselves and for their families. But hope alone will not make their dreams a reality. Enrolling in college is not enough. In order to make real and lasting change, these students need to succeed. Success at college is no easy task. There are many obstacles between the first day of classes and graduation. Of all the students who enroll in community colleges, only half of them will be there a year later and even fewer will successfully complete their degrees or certificates. This is true at the state level, and true of the students who enroll at TBCC. To help better understand where and why students are stumbling TBCC, along with

seven other Oregon community colleges, enrolled in the national “Achieving the Dream” program. Achieving the dream is an evidenced-based, student-centered reform program dedicated to helping colleges make the necessary changes to facilitate student success. By reviewing the data presented at the summit, one area that seemed to continually hinder student success was college level math. Many students were not prepared for these challenging courses when they enrolled, and needed to complete foundational classes in order to develop the needed skills. Unfortunately these developmental classes often took several terms to complete. Many students became discouraged by the amount of time required and never made it to the level they needed to complete their degree. It is a misfortune that foundational math courses are not assisting students to move to the next level, but this is what the data suggests. With the help of our Achieving the Dream partners, TBCC is brainstorming ideas to address this and other obstacles. It is quite a challenge to come up with solutions that alleviate student burdens while simultaneously maintaining high academic standards, but this is what needs to be done. Every term new students enroll at TBCC. Every term they bring with them their hopes and dreams. It is the responsibility of the faculty and staff of TBCC to do everything they can to help transform these hopes into success.

‘tourist tax’ for county roads BY JOE WRABEK Staff writer

As the Legislature debates such burning issues as whether adults should be allowed to smoke in cars and whether cleaning ditches requires an Environmental Impact Statement, we in Tillamook County are worrying about roads. I think almost everyone agrees the county roads are a mess. County public works director Liane Welch has a strategic plan, but no money. And the reason there’s no money is the Feds, who used to contribute quite a large amount to the support of roads and schools (in exchange for not being assessed property taxes). But the Feds reneged on a 100-year-old contract and have basically taken the attitude of the Phone Lady in the old Lily Tomlin skit: “We don’t care because we don’t have to.” Yes, I plan to vote for that road bond. Not because I want to – I think the Federal government should be forced to live up to its obligations. But I realize that (1) Tillamook County doesn’t have enough clout to force the Feds to behave, and (2) the roads really are falling apart: they’re almost at the point where they can’t be repaired, and instead will have to be rebuilt, which costs a lot of money, which I definitely do not want to have to pay. All that said, I’d also like to extract some road money out of all those tourists that descend on Tillamook County every year. Yes, it’s nice to have tourism – it’s the only sector of our economy that’s growing

right now – but those tourists use services, everything from parking lots to police, that they’re not paying for. And they’re also using those roads. A lot. And not paying for them. It would be fun to set up toll booths on the major routes into Tillamook County from the outside world (there are only seven), and charge a fee to get in. I doubt it would impact the tourist traffic much – there’s a certain panache in being allowed into a gated community, after all. But five of those routes are state highways, and I expect ODOT would have a problem with the idea (they have problems with anything that slows down traffic), even though their own highways could use some maintenance, too. One other way to extract funding from tourists is by a sales tax. I know sales taxes are against religion here in Oregon, but what if we rigged it so only the tourists had to pay it? Would it be acceptable then? Thanks to an odd quirk in Oregon law, local governments can have sales taxes. Ashland has one (they call it a “food and beverage tax”); so does Yachats, here on the Coast. Those “transient room taxes” that all our cities have (and the county is talking about having) are really a sales tax on hotel and motel rooms (and in some towns, RV spaces, too). Transient room taxes have limited utility, however, since the state started requiring most of the money be spent on tourism promotion. If we want to generate money specifically for roads, a sales tax on something else might be better.

I’d suggest going further than Ashland, though. I wouldn’t tax everything -- just the things tourists tend to buy and we don’t. Trinkets. Antiques. How about charter boat trips? Train tickets? You get the idea. I would want to exempt local folks somehow. As devout Oregonians, we shouldn’t be paying any sales tax. Washington state used to ask for a driver’s license when you made a purchase; if you were an Oregonian, you didn’t pay sales tax. We could do the same thing. Present a driver’s license: if it shows a Tillamook County address, no sales tax. For kids, we could use a school I.D. card. Yes, it’s a hassle for the businesses that have to collect the tax. I’d recommend letting businesses keep 5 percent of what they collect, like we do with transient room taxes, as a sort of pain-and-suffering fee. As a former city administrator, You’d want to do random audits; I used to do that with the room taxes in Garibaldi – but I virtually never saw a problem. Most folks are basically honest, and most businesses keep really good records. How much money would this effort bring in? I have no idea. As far as I know, nobody monitors retail sales in this

fashion in Oregon – and a lot is going to depend on what things are taxed, and at what rate. One would have to try it out and see what happened. I’m suggesting the idea not because of the amount of money it’d raise, but rather on principle: I want to tax the tourists to pay for the roads, and I want to exempt us local folks because we’re already paying. Would our having a “tourist tax” drive visitors away to other areas? Maybe; it would be easier if every jurisdiction on the Coast had a “tourist tax,” not just Tillamook County, but I’m not sure how achievable that is. When I proposed a Coastwide “tourist tax” back in 2004, it didn’t get a lot of attention. (Of course, counties were still getting Federal roads-and-schools money back then.) It might not matter; when I worked at the Garibaldi House hotel, we got a lot of out-of-state visitors, and they were always surprised we didn’t have a sales tax. Oregon is one of only a handful of states that doesn’t. And if any tourist did complain, I’d point out the money was going for those roads they happen to be driving on. And yes, I’m driving on those roads, too. I just didn’t want to be the only one paying for ‘em.

stand is why they do it to greenery that isn't even close to the road? And most of what they shredded was not creating a hazard to the road. We had a scenic roadside until they started this practice. Why not use that money fixing the road instead of destroying the beauty of the highway?

is church and our wonderful library, both of which continue after we are in school, where we meet new friends and interact with them playing games, joining 4-H (one of the best Extension Services in the state where you can learn to cook, sew, garden, love and take care of animals), Boys or Girls Scouts, our great YMCA, no better anywhere. All of these interspersed with sports: soccer, volleyball, basketball, baseball, football, tennis; if you want to learn leadership roles and giving back to the community any and all of these will help. We have great hiking trails and beaches that are the envy of people in the valley. And there is nothing to do in Tillamook? If you want to dance, there are no greater teachers than in Tillamook. You can observe these dancers at our County Parades, the County Fair, etc. and become one of them. We have great music teachers. Volunteer for TAPA, whether to be a actor or helper, you will learn so much about team work and the enjoyment of interacting with others and giving back to our great community. It is never too late to get started, “Alice”.

READERS’ OPEN FORUM High school students speak up for Pecos the cat To Mrs. and Mr. Slavens, I am truly sorry for what happened to Pecos. I don't know you, but I read your story (March 13 Headlight Herald: Police identify the killer of Pecos the Cat) and I felt sorrow. I myself am 17 but I could never even think of doing what he did. I am terribly sorry for your loss. Animals are more than just animals. They are companions, friends and family. They may not talk, but they do have feelings. I just hope that the boy who did this knows it's wrong and will no longer harm pets. Not only is it an issue for your community but also mine. Your story will be heard. Animal abuse is just as bad as human abuse. May Pecos rest in peace.

Leah Pearce-Morris Tillamook

Why would he do that? I used to have a cat and it got run over. I was devastated about my cat's death. It was part of my family and nothing can replace my cat. It's gone forever and I still miss my cat. Imagine how how the family feels. Why would he do that anyway? I think he deserves to go to juvenile detention because that would be like killing a brother for their son and a child for the parents. I give my regards to the family. I know how they feel. I hope justice is brought down on the young man who did this crime.

Keeping Kids Healthy It's too bad that government efforts to protect children's health (smoking ban in cars) do not extend to limiting food stamp purchases to healthy foods. The name of the taxpayer-funded food stamp program may have changed to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) but no one bothered to ensure that what is purchased is actually nutritious. It

is already in place with WIC, so why not with SNAP? Making this change would save taxpayer dollars, incentivize healthier choices, and reduce healthcare costs by extension.

No knowledge of the law

Ruth Curry Bay City

Let’s say a man has a nonviolent felony conviction and cannot own a firearm; now this same man according to the laws (at the time) could in fact own black powder guns, as they were not considered firearms’ by the state or federal government at the time of purchase. Now it is many years later, and this felon wants to sell his black powder guns that he legally purchased according to the law at the time of purchase. When he sells them he gets arrested for felon in possession of a firearm. But they were legal for him to own, right? No. Two years prior to the sale the state changed the law to include black powder guns. Do you think it is OK for the state to charge him, when he had no knowledge that the law had been changed? The state says it has no responsibility to inform the public of said law change. Keep in mind, The federal government still says it is not a crime for a felon to own a black powder gun, and the state does not require any paperwork to be filled out, no background check, nothing to purchase a black powder gun to this day! Anyone can buy a black powder gun as easy as a bottle of aspirin, as long as you’re 18. Do you think it is correct for the state to pass laws without citizens’ knowledge, and then expect them to conform to a law without knowing what it is? I think this is wrong, what about you?

If you are considering putting your loved one into an assisted living facility please thoroughly investigate each one first. Do not accept word from the facility or a caring friend. There are a number of assisted living concerns: elder abuse, neglect, poor nutrition, not dispensing medications properly or at all, unexpected rate changes, and suspicious deaths. To make sure your facility is up to snuff, ask to see its most recent inspection report. Although each state varies, most conduct a full survey once every two years and document any problems, ranging from faulty paperwork to safety concerns and general cleanliness. This document should be available at the front desk. If it isn't, consider it a red flag! I have sung in many facilities from here to TN, and I have witnessed neglect and abuse in some of them. There are a few really caring facilities, but you have to do the footwork in locating them. If it's for a loved one with memory loss (dementia/Alzheimer's), I highly suggest only a Memory Care Home or Foster Home. Check in with your local area Ombudsman and do a websearch to see which one is a good match for you. If there are more than a dozen complaints, don't take your loved one there.

Yes on roads Vote yes for the road bond measure on May 15, 2013. We have gone down this bumpy road before, and now is the most prudent time to vote yes for the roads. Current interest rates are at an all time low. The Justice Center and Hospital bonds will retire soon. In the long run this adds up to a safer and cheaper ride for all of us.

Pioneer Museum tops list of 2013 PUD grants BY JOE WRABEK


Tillamook County’s Pioneer Museum will get $8,250 from Tillamook PUD’s “community support grants” program for the next phase — Phase 3 – of the Museum’s work at its Kilchis Point Reserve in Bay City. The PUD’s board of directors made the award at their regular meeting Tuesday, March 12. The Museum award was one of 10 approved by the PUD’s board. A total of 23 applications were received, and reviewed by the PUD board at a workshop held prior to the board meeting. The Museum’s request was the only one where the PUD awarded 100 percent of what was requested. Most of the 10 grant recipients were awarded half or more of what they’d asked for. The awards tended to focus on electrical improvements, either upgrading service or rendering it more efficient. The other nine awardees: Camp Makuala, the Campfire Girls camp, got $2,500 towards six electrical hookups for RVs. Nestucca Fire District got $5,000 towards lighting and receptacles for their multi-purpose room. The White Clover Grange in Mohler was awarded $5,635 towards a ductless heat pump system for the century-old building on Highway 53. Cedar Creek Child Care Center and Preschool got $2,820, which will pay for a security system for the facility. The county parks depart-

ment was awarded $5,000 (of $10,000 requested) for electricity to tent sites at Barview County Park. CART’M, north Tillamook County’s non-profit recycling center-cum-thrift-store-cumtransfer station, got $5,635 towards light fixtures and outlets. The Kiawanda Community Center in Pacific City got $8,000 towards an electronic readerboard. “They’ve got a board now, but it’s got problems,” PUD president Olson noted. The Tillamook County Master Gardeners Association will receive $2,120 for electrical work at their greenhouse. And the Rockaway Beach

Chamber of Commerce got $5,040 for electrical work in their Visitors Center – the caboose at the city’s Wayside. This is the 12th year for the PUD’s grant program, which focuses on enhancement of economic development as well as livability and financial need. “PUDs are formed not only to provide power, but also to promote economic development within their service areas,” Tillamook PUD said in their press release. Projects are supposed to be completed by the end of the year. Aplicants not receiving grant awards this year were Winema Christian Camp, Rockaway Beach’s restoration of Seaview Lake and Park,

Salvation Army, Garibaldi Museum, South County Food Pantry, the Tillamook County Quilt Trail, Tillamook Bay Child Care Center, Family Youth Services, the Rinehart Clinic, 2nd Street Market, Food Roots, and the Hoquarton Interpretive Trail. The Monday Musical Club, which has received PUD community support grants in the past, didn’t get one this year, but will still get financial support – through the PUD’s advertising budget instead of the grant program. “It’s different from other projects,” Olson noted at the workshop. “It’s a non-capital item.”

In his statement, McClave encouraged the public to continue bringing concerns to city council meetings. “In the end, we are accountable to you,” he said. He urged the council to “seek new blood” in choosing as replacement, and suggested a 2-term limit. “Change is good,”

he said. Both former mayor Dennis Porter and city manager Lars Gare praised McClave and his work. “Jack has embarked on a tough battle now,” Gare said. Porter praised McClave’s service to the community, his clients, and the council. “We shared a common experience in the military,” Porter noted. “We served in Panama and Vietnam. I have saluted presidents, royalty, ambassadors and generals. This is for you,” he told McClave, saluting. The audience applauded Gare’s and Porter’s remarks, and gave McClave a standing ovation.

She was a 1962 graduate of Tillamook High School and married Allan Duncan in Tillamook on December 8, 1961. Mrs. Duncan raised two children before starting a career with Tillamook School District No. 9, beginning in 1977 as a bus driver and eventually serving as Director of Transportation for nearly 18 years, retiring in 2003. Along the way she earned a B.S. degree from Eastern Oregon - La Grande through correspondence courses and satellite campus coursework. Mrs. Duncan served for 12 years on the Tillamook City Council, where she was involved with the streets committee. She was a former member of the Eagles and Moose Lodges, and served as a Tillamook Ambassador for many years. Among her many interests were photography (when younger), yearly attendance at the Oregon State and Tillamook County Fairs, and travel. She and Allan traveled all over the world, cruising, on motor home trips, casino junkets (Wendover in Utah was a favorite destination), and visits abroad to Europe, Britain, North Africa, and many other places. She was very fond of her Miniature Schnauzers, and in addition to family and friends, Sherry will be missed by her dog Mandy. A graveside service will take place on Friday March 22, 2013 at 11 a.m. at Tillamook IOOF Cemetery followed by a gathering at the 4- H Dorm at the Tillamook Fair Grounds. Donations in Sherry’s name to either the American Diabetes Association or the National Kidney Foundation may be made care of Waud’s Funeral Home.

Friends will be saddened to hear of the passing of Alice Grace Holden, 89, on March 15, 2013. She was born to Leland and Elizabeth (Phillips) Bester on March 14, 1924. She has ALICE two sisters, HOLDEN Phyllis Tallman and Lela Hill, both of Portland. She and her family are long time Tillamook pioneers, dating back to the early 1800's. Every chance she got, she told told people where her roots were, and she was so very proud. On June 4, 1944 she married Jay Holden. They would have been celebrating their 69th wedding anniversary. Jay was sent to Tillamook during WWII. Alice worked in the administration and disbursement office at the time; when this handsome young man walked into her office it was love at first sight. Alice and Jay say the best thing that happened to them was having three daughters, Jeanie (Bob) Prichard and their four sons, of Stayton; Kathy (Mike) Landolt and their two children, and Joanne (Bob) Spencer and their eight children, all of Tillamook. They have 21 great grandchildren and are still counting. Alice worked as a legal secretary for George Goodrich, and when the girls were all in school she worked full time at Stewart Insurance Agency. She and Jay owned and operated her father's business, Bester's Wrecking Yard, until they retired. Her best job was being mom to her three daughters. She will be greatly missed! She supported many activities at the schools over the years. From the election board, museum volunteer, THS scholarship committee, and Pioneer Association to Tillamook Bowling Lanes secretary, she served her community. For fun she worked crossword puzzles,

South County food pantry opens BY MELONIE FERGUSON

The new food pantry in Pacific City, dubbed the South County Food Bank, opened Tuesday February 26. It's housed in the "old building" adjacent to Nestucca Valley Presbyterian Church off Brooten Road in Pacific City. A line of twelve waiting clients sipped coffee at 5:00 on Tuesday March 12 as site coordinator Nancy Oleson answered questions for The Headlight Herald. "The neatest thing is the community involvement." Nancy said. “We're down three volunteers today; they're sick with the flu. Clients have pitched in all day; anywhere

we've needed a hand. It has been an awesome experience." Besides Nancy, volunteers on March 12 included: Ginger Harlow Allen, Lori Galloway Byrd, Ruth Kiser, Jim Oleson, and Jo Rack. Unlike some other local pantries, The South County Food Bank offers clients selections in a system called Healthy Options. Clients choose from a variety of items offered on the room's eight tables similar to choosing groceries in a store, by preference. Any household within Nestucca School District can participate; everything is free and there are no income restrictions. One household of three loaded up three bags of groceries that afternoon. Their

selections included: three pounds of ground elk, two pounds each of frozen peas and green beans, dry rice, beans, and pasta, four cans of soup, two cans of stew, three cans of apricots, three cans of diced tomatoes, a package of oatmeal, two boxes of shelf stable milk, two jars of peanut butter, a rutabaga, two pears, and a yam. South County Food Bank will be open from 4-6:00 p.m. on Tuesdays March 26, April 9 and 23, May 7 and 21, June 4, 18 and every other Tuesday going forward. It's located in the old church adjacent to Nestucca Valley Presbyterian Church, 35305 Brooten Road, Pacific City. For additional information or to volunteer call Nancy Oleson, 503-434-3172.

Tillamook County ‘speechies’ going to state BY JOE WRABEK

The 2013 District speech tournament was held in Tillamook this year (it’s normally in the Willamette Valley), with seven high schools sending teams to compete, including the three high schools in Tillamook County. Fourteen of Tillamook’s 18 competing “speechies” will be going on to the big state tournament in April, held at Western Oregon University in Monmouth. Four will be going from Nestucca (of 11), and three from Neah-Kah-Nie (of eight). A total of 64 students came to Tillam-

ook from the seven high schools. Three of the other schools were much larger, noted assistant Tillamook speech coach Brett Hurliman – Canby, Forest Grove, and McMinnville. (The fourth was Veritas, a small private school in Newberg, which sent two students to the tournament.) Going to state from Tillamook are Nick Wilson (Radio), Sean Rumage (Extemperaneous), Martin Nelson-Harrington (After Dinner Speaking), Shasyla Hayes (After Dinner Speaking), Amelia Zuidema and Brighton Dorland (CX), Luke Haenggi (Improvisation), Mackenzie Cook (Poetry), Thania Mendez (Poetry), Nick Wilson and

Noah Jenck (Public Forum Debate), McKenzi Wassmer and Zak Zwald (Public Forum Debate), Kestrel Bailey (with Sean Rumage – Parliamentary Debate), and Kaleb Crossley (with Luke Haenggi – Parliamentary Debate). Nestucca is sending to state Chelsea Wallace (Radio and Humorous Interpretation), Makayla Meyer (Expository), Teanna Fitch (Expository and Prose), and Jenny Sewell (Prose and Poetry). And from Neah-Kah-Nie, Ariel Breazile (Radio), Malea Bauley-Gabriel (Poetry), and Dylan Wacker (with Ariel Breazile – Duo) are going to the state tournament.

Commissioners proclaim March 20 ‘Kick Butts Day’ BY JOE WRABEK

Wednesday, March 20 is “Kick Butts Day” in Tillamook County. County commissioners issued the proclamation following a presentation and petition March 13 by Tillamook High School students Andie Putman and Jessica Dally on behalf of Tobacco Free Kids. An assembly is planned at the high school March 20, too, commissioners were told. ”We may be getting some national coverage,” noted JoDee Ridderbush, who accompanied the students. “I applaud your work on this,” commissioner Bill Baertlein told the students. County commissioners also proclaimed the week of March 24-30 as Problem Gambling Awareness Week, requested by Mary Ann Dearborn from Tillamook Family Counseling. This is the third year in a row the county has made the proclamation, Dearborn said. Prevention efforts are targeting middle school students, Dearborn said. A 2012 survey found Tillamook County 8th graders had higher rates than statewide for gambling on the Internet, she said; by 11th grade, Tillamook County kids were found to be playing the lottery, dice, and cards at higher than statewide rates. In other business, county commissioners approved a 2-

Tillamook county’s commissioners held a workshop on March 12 to hear status and recommendations from the Neskowin Coastal Hazards Committee. The commissioners voted unanimously to continue the work of the two subcommittees of NCHC that deal with active protection (engineering approaches to limiting erosion) and with land use issues. Commissioner Mark Labhart said, at the end of the meeting, “It’s time for us to step up, to recognize these problems and address them now.” Coastal damage has long been of interest in Neskowin, especially after extensive erosion of beach and damage to riprap occurred during the winters of 2007 and 2008. The NCHC was formed by the county commissioners in 2009, to advise on issues related to erosion of the ocean shore, with emphasis on the community of Neskowin, but with the vision that what is learned in Neskowin, both as to process and as to results, would serve as a model for the rest of the county. The workshop took place in the Hatfield room of the county public library. It was attended by the three county commissioners, the county’s planning director, representatives of the state Department of Land Conservation and Development, a representative of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, and about a dozen citizens including several members of the NCHC and the Neskowin Citizens Planning Advisory Committee. An overview of Neskowin’s activities was presented by Guy Sievert, chair of the Nesko CPAC. Bill Busch talked about active protection. Gale Ousele and Dave Kraybill described efforts to define land-use rules in areas subject to erosion. The active-protection subcommittee’s presention included forecasts of beach erosion, some of which predict complete disappearance of beach from some areas, within a few decades. There is a net drift of sand northward from Neskowin towards Cape Kiwanda. These forecasts were made without accounting for any climate changes (global warming), which might exacerbate the situation. Various engineering approaches to limiting coastal erosion were described. A report by a consulting organization (ESA PWA of San

Francisco) is almost ready for release. One approach being discussed favorably is to raise the height requirement for revetments (riprap) by several feet. A key land-use recommendation is to establish a “hazard overlay zone” that would define the area most likely to suffer erosion by extreme ocean tides. The proposed boundaries of the hazard zone approximate the extent of inundation by a “100-year” high tide (as defined by the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries, DOGAMI). The land-use subcommittee has drafted proposed ordinances to regulate real-estate improvements within the hazard zone. These draft ordinances are being distributed to all Neskowin residents and will be discussed on Apr. 6 at the next meeting of the Nesko CPAC. The proposed rules would require a permit for new construction in the hazard zone; prohibit certain types of construction in the zone, eg, “new slab on grade”; require certain new structures to be moveable; require meeting a “safest site” standard; restrict land division (no auxiliary dwelling units, no additional multi family units); impose requirements on drainage and runoff; and define criteria (in terms of cost of a change relative to “real market value” of the existing property) that would make a proposed project subject to the new rules. Discussion seemed to favor making such ordinances community specific, rather than county wide, because of the vastly varying conditions along the Tillamook coast. One approach would be to form a “geologic hazard abatement district” in each community that had a need for such rules. Talk touched on safeguarding the beach itself, as a value to the community, in addition to protecting human constructions. Such efforts are beyond the county’s scope of action, being under jurisdiction of the state. The state will have a say regarding any proposals (eg, changing riprap height) that would affect beach erosion. Commissioner Tim Josi said he is “impressed with the work of the NCHC and appreciates the value of the CPAC activities.” Commissioner Labhart said the board of commissioners will prepare the county planning commission to receive recommendations from the Nesko CPAC in April.

Mook golfers swing into the spring season PAGE A8

Long drives, tricky chips and slippery puts are all part of the game this spring for Tillamook High School's golf team. And this year's team has the kind of kids who can make those tough shots and will look to throw up some extremely low numbers on the course. Especially the boys team. Tillamook's boys are led by last season's Cowapa League Champion Tyler Udenby who easily has the potential to repeat as league champion this spring. Besides Udenby, Tillamook has other returners who will place right at the top of the league. Juniors David Waud and Brandon Roehl will be Tillamook's second and third best golfers unless one of them catches Udenby and with three excellent golfers at the top of the roster, Tillamook's boys have a good chance at a league title. “I think we have as strong top three golfers as anyone in the league,” said THS golf coach Wil Duncan. “What we’ll need for a title chance is to get a good fourth and fifth guys to step up and fill in with some low scores.” Golfing is scored by each team choosing its five best golfers and then taking the four lowest scores as the team score. With three solid golfers up top, it's going to be up to either Taylor Cham, Jarred McKibben, Bryton Dorland, Brandon Delanoy or an unexpected younger golfer to fill the final scoring spot. “We have about 13 kids out this year which is very cool,” Duncan said. “We're going to have a very good JV team no matter what happens because we have so many kids.”

“The goal for this team is to be in the top two teams in the league and I think it's really reasonable that this team could finish in the top 10 at State. “I'm excited about my team’s potential. My guys are troopers and they just go out there and play golf.” Tillamook's girls team didn't have nearly as many kids come out, and coach Danielle Weber is working with two girls hoping to watch each of them improve. “I have Dani Hiatt and Natalie Zuercher who’ve both participated in Tillamook junior golf camps since they were little, and we’ve built a relationship,” Weber said. “They're both great girls and they're willing to learn about the game in depth. Maybe we won't be super competitive this season, but we have the potential to be in the near future.” Besides the boys, girls and coaches involved in Tillamook's golf program, there are other huge contributors who have gone out of their way to

The biggest loss from last year's team was All Leaguer Sara Strang's pitching and her timely hits. Without that, Tilamook will need to manufacture runs in other ways, but should have the pitching covered. Tillamook will march to the circle Tessa Streeter, Taylor Woods and Shayla Hayes this spring. Between the three of them, the Lady Mooks should be okay in the pitching department. “Our pitchers will all rotate in this season and they're all capable of throwing strikes so we're not too worried about that,” Seidel said. The one thing Seidel did note that the team needs to get better at will be their excution with the bat. Especially in clutch situations. “Our offensive execution has a long way to go,” Seidel said. “We need to bunt better and be good situational hitters. If we need a girl to hit behind a runner, we should be able to do that. If we need a clutch bunt, we should be able to get it down. Right now, I’m not confident in the entire team’s ability. It's definitely our biggest weakness at this point.” On the other hand, one of Tillamook's greatest strengths this season is they’re retuning

All League catcher, Kaylin Hammond. Hammond was a rock for the Cheesemaker defense last season as a freshman. She'll need to keep that up to help her team and add some big hits in big spots. “we're looking for her to take a more vocal leadership role on the team this season,” Seidel said. “She did a great job taking on that role during basketball season and we're hoping she will step up for this

team and continue to lead. We know she can do it.” The team has an earlty hurdle to overcome this season besides it's opponents. The head coach Jack Colleknon will be out for surgery only a few days before league starts so Seidel and the rest of the assistant coaches will have to fill in. They've all been with the program for years prior to this season so there shouldn't be any major issues with the coaching change.

Tillamook baseball turning around under Brown

Mook baseball is in its second season under the leadership of head coach Josh Brown. Last year, the team was head and shoulders better than it had been the year before Brown took over, and it's very reasonable to think this year's team will be even better than that. “I still think we're capable of winning the Cowapa League, but to do that we're going to have to get mentally stronger because we have the physical ability. ” Brown said. Brown has good reasons to be confident in his team. There are eight seniors on the roster this season and Tillamook only

Cheesemaker softball has their bases covered

Tillamook's softball team had some excellent players last season, and there was a strong feeling from the coaching staff that the team was better than it's record showed. This spring’s team has many of the same girls on the roster and might have just the right mixture of talent and chemistry to bang up the rest of the Cowapa League. “This team works and fights hard and they're really loud,” said Tillamook softball assistant coach Wes Seidel. “I think we're going to be a strong team defensively, but we still need to grow. I think we'll come around.”


of their pitching staff, especially junior Matt Strang. Strang did the majority of the pitching for Tillamook last season and to say he was outstanding would be a huge understatement. At times, Strang was untouchable. If he stays healthy, this season should be no different. Fortunately, the days Strang isn't pitching there shouldn't be much of a let down. Senior Damion Brown surpassed many expectations on the mound last season and there's no reason to think he won't continue to improve throughout this year. He's not a flamethrower like Strang and won’t tally as many strikeouts, but he does a very good job keeping the ball down and keeping the hitters off balance. Also, Tillamook has a pretty good catching staff with Ryan Trogdon back from surgery and AJ Harmon looking to take care of most the catching duties. If Tillamook's bats come alive, the Cheesemakers have all kinds of potential. “We're going to utilize the preseason to get some of the kinks out and get through the errors on defense, but I think

we're really going to see the guys mentally pull it together once they get back out on the diamond and remember what they're doing,” Brown said. “Astoria and Scappoose are both very good programs in our league but I want my guys going up to the plate this season knowing they're better than the pitcher and expecting to get hits. Physically, we can do it, we just need to mentally get there.”

Tillamook's track season is shaping up to be a good one, at least for a few of the best individuals. The team aspect of it will be tough for the girls team because they lost a few major contributors from last year's team, but the boys got a lot of their best athletes back and should turn some heads. “We have almost all of our top boys back this year led by Markus Pullen, Myron Moore, Jacob Wassmer, Westley Stirk, Nathan McRae and Aaron Josi.” said Tillamook track coach Mark Dean. “Girl wise, we're in a bit of rebuilding phase. We have small numbers out and some of our returners we thought were coming out, didn't.” While the girl's team numbers are down, there are still a few girls on the team who can compete at a very high level and coach Dean is looking forward to having these girls out there representing Tillamook. “The girls team is going to be led by the distance runners Sabrina Pullman and Kestrel Bailey,” Dean said. In the field events, Tillamook does have a long way to go, but they have good building blocks to work with moving forward. “We have some good young throwers out, but we're not quite sure how good they're going to be because in

many cases it's the first time they've ever been out for track,” Dean said. “They show a lot of potential in practice, but whether that potential becomes success, we're not quite sure. “We do have a good thrower in Ben Reeder coming back in the javelin and he had a really good toss towards the end of last year, so we're looking for him to be a leader among the throwers.” Besides the throwers and runners, Tillamook has one jumper in particular that might literally raise the bar higher than anyone ever has at Tillamook High School. “We're also led this season by Nathan McRae,” Dean said. “He's an excellent athlete. He runs high hurdles, triple jumps and high jumps. He could be one of the most athletic kids in the whole league.” With the low numbers, team scoring will be tough, but there might be enough boys to get them finishing towards the top of the Cowapa League. “For the boys, I think it'd be a very successful year if they finished in the top three in this very tough league,” Dean said. “There's always a lot of State champions coming out of the league and they're going to challenge our kids this season.”

Busy tennis season coming The Tillamook tennis team will be extra busy this spring, but the girls are going to have fun while they compete.

The Tillamook tennis team led by head coach Allison Meyers has an interesting mix of young ladies coming out to the court this season. The team has a good number of girls at 13, six of which are back from last year's team. But, the team is also made up of seven girls who've never played tennis before. And to make things a little trickier, the team lost one of the top doubles teams in the league last year in Kaylee Atchison and Erin Bennett. With all these factors added in for Tillamook tennis, coach Meyers likes what she sees. “I'm excited about this team,” Meyers explained. “I have a lot of new girls but it's so nice to watch them from the beginning because you get to watch them learn, and they progress so fast. “The the girls who are a little more advanced and already have skills get back on the court and they take right off.” As for the doubles teams this year, it seems to be pretty clear cut what girls are going to be Tillamook's number one duo. “Yanderi Jimenez and Katie Richards will be my best doubles team,” Meyers said. Her singles number one and two players are still up in the air because both girls at the top are equally matched.

“Becqua Rogers or Lauren Cunningham will be my number one and two,” Meyers said. “The rest is totally open. We have to see where the girls end up, and I'll work on where to place them as the season progresses.” There is one major change this year in Tillamook's tennis schedule. The addition of Corbett to the league has added a lot more matches to the season and should give a young Tillamook team a lot more chances to improve. “With Corbett added to district, we've added Saturday matches to the schedule,” Meyers said. “It's going to mean a lot more reps for the girls which is a good thing. “It's gonna be a long season and we're going to have a long time to improve.”

Lady Cats power into spring Injury free Pirates bouncing back

Headlight Herald - Tillamook, Ore., Wednesday, March 20, 2013 - Page A9

The Nestucca Bobcat softball team is absolutely loaded with returners this season with 10 girls coming back from last year's team, three of which are seniors. With that kind of experience, the rest of the Northwest League should be shaking in their cleats. Pitching for the Bobcats this season will be a number of girls, but for the most part, Jasmine Boisa and Kycie Richwine will be called into the circle. That's a good thing for Nestucca, considering they've both handled the responsibility before and Boisa was a First Team All League player last season. The rest of the Nestucca defense is very well rounded and should be able to make the plays they need when they need them. It's on the offensive side of the ball where the Bobcats really shine with power hitter and First Team All League returner Emiliy Menafee leading the way. “Our hitting looks to be up right now in the cage,” said Bobcat softball coach Jeff Schiewe. “We have about eight of our girls who are really lacing the ball and in our first game, we weren't striking out. Almost all our outs were on contact so we're putting the ball in play. “We do need to be a lot more patient and have a lot bet-

ter pitch selection though.” Last season the Lady Cats were right in the thick of the playoff hunt and ended up taking fourth in the league, and they 10-runned Vernonia in the playoff to finish in third after losing to Knappa. They have all the potential to finish even better this season. “This is a good league and it was a pretty tight race last year and I think it will be pretty tight this year too,” Schiewe explained. “I think we're going to be good this year when it's all over. I’ve got a good core group of girls and they're goal is to make the playoffs. They can accomplish that.”

Big sticks leads Bobcat baseball

There are dozens of different ways to describe a baseball making perfect contact off the bat as it goes screaming into the field. Line drive, frozen rope, laser, a shot and so forth. This season, those are all terms that should be surrounding the Nestucca Bobcats baseball team and the potent offense they're bringing to the diamond. “Everything I've heard about this team and have seen so far says these guys can swing the bats,” said first year Bobcat baseball coach Clint Sisco. “I'm speaking after only having a couple of days of practice, but we shouldn't have to play a lot of small ball out there this season. Hopefully we can just step out there and hit the ball around.” The offense doesn't look like it's going to be a big problem with the Bobcats baseball team with guys like Jacob Menefee, Joey Chatelain, Max Kirkendal and Zack Welch in the lineup. The questions lie with the Cats defense, pitching and whether or not the team chemistry is there and the guys stick together. “I think we do a pretty good job fielding the ball and we don't have any major holes out there,” Sisco explained. “What I do want to work on day by day is team chemistry. We need to be a tight knit group and and I want our guys to focus on the team and not themselves.” The pitching staff for the Bobcats shouldn't have to be flawless with the offense’s ability to put up runs, but they're going to need to keep other teams at bay, and the Cats have the staff to do it. Sophomore Brian Anderson

is a soft tossing lefty hurler who does a good job keeping the ball down and keeps hitters off balance. Jacob Menefee is the hardest thrower the Cats have and with a good off-speed pitch to go with the heater, should be very successful. Cody Chance, Austin Woods, Joey Chatelain and Max Kirkendal will also get some innings for the Bobcats. “I want pitchers this year, not just throwers,” Sisco said. “If we can hit spots, we'll be doing a good job.” Other than Woods, Kirkendal and Jay Downs, the Cats aren't an extremely fast team, but look to have the tools needed to do much better than last year's 8-15 team and Sisco says his guys need to come out hot. “I'm excited to get right after it,” Sisco said. “It's a short

season and we need to get going right out of the gates.”

Pirate track team small but mighty

The Neah-Kah-Nie track squad has few fairly major holes going into this spring. Besides losing the Porter twins who were a huge part of the program for four years, they also lost the irreplaceable Alex Anderson, an athlete whoes leaping ability was unmatched by almost the entire state. And with only 16 kids coming out to the track team this spring, there aren't many new faces to score points for the team. “It's going to be hard to compete as a team with so few people,” said NKN track coach Cynthia Grelck. “We don't even fill half the events, but we do have a few individuals who could do very well at Districts and maybe make it to State.” One of those athletes who has a legit shot at a State is Nathan Imholt. Imholt finished third third last year in the discus, one spot away from a State birth. Luckily, one of the kids who finished ahead of him graduated leaving the spot open for the taking. Christina Burdick and Tasha Mabe-DeRoast will both be back for the Pirates this season and hopefully throwing like they did last season. Both girls were in the top 5 at Districts in throwing events and with a little good

luck, hard work and peaking at the right time, either could earn a State birth this season. The brother and sister combination of freshman Annie Romig and junior Logan Romig will make some noise this season too. Both of them are playing baseball or softball and running track this spring. Annie will be helpful in the Pirates relays races as will Logan, but Logan's main focus will be the 1500m. Also playing dual sports is Brad Watson. Watson, when not playing baseball, will run the 100m and 200m. He's very likely the fastest kid at Neah-Kah-Nie High School and may be one of the fastest in the District. “We have a very young team this season with only six upperclassmen, but we have some good freshman and we'll see what happens,” Grelck Tasha Mabe-DeRoest will be a said. big part of the Lady Pirates

Pirate baseball is turning the corner

With his speed and quick bat, Jay Downs will hold down the leadoff spot for the Bobcats this season.

Nestucca looking good on track and in field

When it comes to Track season in Tillamook county, there aren't many people who've been coaching and highly involved in a program longer than Nestucca's Athletic Director and track coach John Elder. This season, Elder to looks forward to coaching and a few who have so much potential, there's no limit to how good they can be. “We have some really good throwers this season for the boys,” Elder said. “Drace Moeller took second place for us last season in the shot put at State and we have Brett Elder, Zack Langly, and Austim McKillip so I feel we're going to be very stong on the boys side in the throwing events.“ They compete with each other every day and because they're all talented, they push each other to get better in practice.” As a whole, the Bobcats do have a lot of kids this season who don't have much experience, but those kids are eager to learn and with Elders coaching ability, they’ll learn fast. On the girls side, the Bobcats are a bit shy of their usual numbers, but they still have some very good girls coming back off of last season's team. “We have a light turnout this season for the girls and definitely not as many as usual, but Courtney Ahn is returning as the 3000m district champ and so it Rebbecca Whittles, who was only a few steps behind Ahn,” Elder said.

Neah-Kah-Nie's Lady Pirate softball team was completely crippled last year almost immediately. Not only figuratively, but also literally when the top two pitchers Taylan McKinney and Emily Marugg went down early in the season with leg injuries. “It was just about as bad as it could get with so many walks,” said NKN softball coach Jacquie Vandecoevering. “We were giving up 10 From left, Emily Marugg and Hayley Felix are veteran Pirates runs in the first inning without anchoring down the left side of the infield this season. the other team even swinging the bat.

“Rebbecca ran really well in cross country last fall, so I expect her to really come on.” Kycie is another Lady Cat who should do very well this season. Richwine was the third place finisher last year in the Northwest League and missed a spot at state. Unfortunately, the two fastest girls in the state are both in the Northwest league. Other good Lady Bobcat athletes out this season are Monica Chatelain who will likely run the 8000m and throw as well as fellow thrower Trisha Hopkins. As a whole the Bobcats numbers will hurt their team scores, but they have some great individuals who should have great seasons if things work out. “We have a lot of new people and I'm excited about what they can do,” Elder said. “There are some really good athletes and almost all my kids are very coachable and enjoyable to be around.”

If there was one thing the Neah-Kah-Nie baseball can do this season, it's improve. The boys were a dismal 1-16 last season and were coming off a winless season prior to that. So, this year's team has no where to go but up and judging by their early season practice and looking at their roster, the future looks bright. “We only lost one senior from last year's team and we're returning a ton of kids who played summer ball last year and really looked like they sharpened their games,” said Pirate baseball coach Leo Lawyer. “We have our ace pitcher back in Mike Nelson, and we have our All League catcher back in Brad Watson. I'm feeling good about this year.” Last season the Pirates linked up with the Nestucca Bobcats to make a summer ball team played between 15 and 20 games giving all the players a lot more reps and more live experience that can't

be duplicated in practice. The Pirates have a good team coming back. Tanner Repass had knee surgery last year and didn't get to play but he'll be ready this year. Nick and Andrew Smith will be hustling around the bases and the infield for the Pirates this year with versatile seniors James Tice and Shonte Young helping out where they're needed. Not to mention Craig Grasseth filling in wherever he's needed. Overall, if the Pirates can wake up their bats and play better defense, they're going to find themselves on the winning end of the scoreboard more often than not. “I think we might have the fastest team in Oregon as far as team speed,” Lawyer said. “But last year it was our defense that let us down. I think our defense is already better than it was two-thirds of the way through last season and we're only going to get better as we practice and play

a few more games.” If the Pirates defense can stiffen up, the offense won't need to do much more than it did last season. Losses came from poor defense more than poor offense and with the speed the Pirates have getting around the bases, Neah-KahNie baseball might finally turn the corner this season and turn some heads in the Northwest League.

Pirate baseball wins season opener at Clatskanie HEADLIGHT HERALD • MARCH 20, 2013


Pirate softball sweeps opening doubleheader BY JOSIAH DARR Headlight Herald Sports

The Pirates softball team had a nightmare season last year which started when their two best pitchers both suffered season ending injuries. From that point on, each game became a marathon of walks because the remaining Pirates pitchers had no experience and weren’t able to throw consistent strikes. Luckily the woes of last season disappeared when Pirate pitcher Taylin McKinney returned to the circle to pitch the first game of the season for the Lady Pirates on Mar. 15. NKN vs Delphian The Pirates hosted the Delphian Dragons, but fell behind early and trailed 7-2 going into the last inning. The Pirates didn't give up though. They kept fighting and rattled off six runs in the bottom of the final inning, capped off with a walk-off two RBI double from Annie Romig to get the 8-7 win in

the first game of the year. “It was a great game,” said Pirate softball coach Jacque Vandecoevering. “The girls actually played even better than I thought they would.” Like water in a dessert, McKinney delivered much needed strikes all game long, keeping the offense within striking distance. “It's hard to even compare this team to last year's team,” Jacque Vandecoevering said. “Without a pitcher we weren't even competitive, but with Taylin back we will be. She makes all the difference.” McKinney took the circle again the second game of the doubleheader and with good pitching and some timely hitting, the Pirates got another win, this time winning by a wide margin, 15-5. The Pirates did drop a doubleheader to Sheridan on Mar. 16, but JOSIAH DARR PHOTO they'll be ready to get their league season underway when they travel The return of pitcher Taylin McKinney to the Pirates roster to Knappa on Mar. 22 for a double- immediately made the difference in the Pirate’s ability to win games. header starting at 3 p.m.

The Neah-Kah-Nie Pirate baseball team has been far from contenders the last two seasons. In fact, they've only managed to win one game over that stretch. With a past like that, it's east to see how the players might not go into the season with very high hopes or a lot of confidence in themselves. While that would be understandable, that’s not how this year's Pirate baseball team went into the season. On the contrary, they were ready to win and win they did, beating Clatskanie's JV team in the season opener on Mar. 12. They lost their next game to Catlin Gable on Mar. 15, but the precedent was already set. This Pirates squad was ready to play baseball and they were expecting to win games. Neah-Kah-Nie @ Clatskanie The Pirates came out of the gates and started hitting the ball like they can early in the game, quickly getting a lead. “When we saw that team, it felt like we were looking at ourselves two years ago,” said Pirates head coach Leo Lawyer. “It was a JV team, but a win is a win and it was a good way to start the season. The Pirates had multiple players whacking the ball all over the yard in the game. Brad Watson went 2-4 with a triple, Nick Smith was 1-2 with two RBI, Mike Nelson was 3-4 with four RBI, and Craig Grasseth was 1-4 for with two RBI of his own. Nelson threw the first four innings before Watson came in the finish the last three. When it was all over, the Pirates won, 15-4. Winning the first game when the team won a single game the prior season does great things for the confidence, but Lawyer says that confidence was built in his team well before their first game of the year. “Our confidence was built by the guys putting in the extra work before the season ever started,” Lawyer explained. “Our guys played a lot of extra games over last summer and got a lot extra work. Then, when this season started, the juniors and seniors were out having practice and working in the cage on their own before the coaches ever got involved. “I bet Mike Nelson threw five extra games last summer and got 30 more at bats he never would have had.”

Bobcats look excellent in opening two meets Headlight Herald Sports

The Nestucca Bobcats and the Neah-Kah-Nie Pirates both got their seasons started with home meet victories in a five way meet with Willamina, Sheridan, Neah-Kah-Nie and Santiam. The boys overwhelmed the competition by 60 points to take the commanding victory while the girls meet was very close. The Bobcat boys team had 31 personal records throughout the course of the day despite the drizzly weather. Gage McCall won his first ever race by coming in first in the 110 high hurdles, followed closely by Freshman teammate Wyatt McKillip. Drace Moeller started his shot put season with a victory at 47-feet 2-inches, one inch from his last year's best and the second best throw in Bobcat history for a sophomore. His teammate, freshman Brett Elder, won the Discus with a throw of 125-feet, just three feet off the Bobcat freshman class record. Elder also was second in the shot put at 40feet 7-inches and third in the javelin. Austin McKillip showed his all around ability with second place finishes in the javelin, pole vault, long jump and triple jump. New teammate Ronnie Moffitt won his first high school long jump, and was third in the 100 meters. McKillips pole vault of 9-feet 6-inches was a new PR.

completed the Bobcat Blitz with a win in the 4X400 Relay. The girls team was led by a victory in the 100 hurdles by Kycie Richwine, 3000 meter win by defending District Champion Courtney Ahn, and a total of 17 PRs by the team. On Mar. 16, the Cats traveled to Waldport to face a loaded field of 4A schools, but the most difficult opponent turned out to be the weather, with a steady rain and unrelenting punishing winds. Despite the poor conditions, Austin McKillip was a two event winner. He managed to win a rain shortened pole vault and the javelin with a big PR of 151feet 3-inches. The javelin event saw several Bobcat PRs or seasons bests, with Monica Chatelain's 86foot 10-inch leading the girls

and Drace Moeller finishing second. Moeller was also second in the shot put. Brett Elder had another Discus PR to finish in third place in the event. "We had quite a few PRs, with athletes like Thor Farstad and Miranda White getting three, and Lucas Leslie two.” said Bobcat track coach John Elder. “It was miserable, but Nestucca kids still competed well without too many complaints!" "It was a brand new facility, so that was neat to be able to compete there first. Unfortunately the covered stands were not completed yet!"

Neah-Kah-Nie @ Catlin Gable The Pirates fell to Catlin and their very talented pitching staff on Mar. 15, but there was a silver lining in the loss. Mike Nelson threw a complete game one-hitter and even though they lost 4-0, Nelson only gave up one earned run. “We played really well,” Lawyer said. “They had a very good pitcher we were't quite ready for, but overall I was happy with my guys.” The Pirates will try to get another win on Mar. 22 in a double header at Knappa starting at 3 p.m.

ongratulations to Jessica Mick, daughter of Grace and Jim Mick of Pacific City, on acceptance to the Northwest College of Art, where she was offered a $40,000 “The Pear District Scholarship,” awarded on merit over four years. Jessica has also been accepted to the Cornish College of the Arts in Washington State. Hats off as well to Jennifer McDaniel of Cloverdale for achieving the academic honor of appearing on the Dean’s List, having earned a 3.7 grade point average or above, at Pacific University in Forest Grove. While Cloverdale Pharmacy will be open their regular hours throughout March and during Spring Break, the drug department will be closed on Friday and Saturday, March 22-23. We’ll want to have John refill our prescriptions in plenty of time. The South Tillamook County Library Club will have their annual Book, Bake and Plant sale from 9:00 to 3:00 this Saturday, March 23, 2013, at The Central Building (next to the Post Office in Pacific City.) Club members can start at 8:00. You may join the club at an early-bird sale for $5. For more information call Joani Moore, 503-965-3681. Speaking of the library I hear that just three garden plots remain in their shared garden. For fifteen years the space adjacent to the library parking lot has been “A Garden for Sharing,” with local volunteers rais-



he American Red Cross will conduct a volunteer induction and orientation at the red schoolhouse in Cape Meares on Saturday, March 23 at 8:30 a.m. This is at 5960 4th Street N.W. in Cape Meares. Everyone is welcome. Cape Meares residents, both full and part-timers are encouraged to attend. A strong Red Cross volunteer base in Cape Meares will result in a stronger, more effective response to events ranging from the effects of winter storms to a major earthquake and tsunami. Please RSVP to Chris Spence at 503 812-8971. The Emergency Volunteer Corp of Nehalem Bay plus Red Cross personnel presented information regarding their best thinking about what things we might do to prepare for future emergencies including the possibility of a major Cascadia subduction zone earthquake and tsunami. After listening to the suggestions that were shared at the meeting, Keith Johansen, Mike



ongratulations, first, to Jerry and Mary Bartolomucci, who won the 32-inch flat-screen TV with DVD player that the Garibaldi Lions Club was raffling off at the Crab Races. (If you were by the beer booth, you probably saw Jerry—he was manning the booth both days.) Congratulations, too, to Bob Jeans, who won the “trifecta” – a night for two at the Garibaldi House Inn, a bottom-fishing trip on the SiggiG, and a $25 gift certificate from Koko’s. I’m told (by Jerry) the Crab Races drew some 800 people on Saturday, and another 600 on Sunday—and they ran out of food on Sunday, which is a good sign. The Crab Races are the Lions Club’s biggest fund-raiser of the year, and happen with a host of volunteers. For (I think) the

ing crops to benefit local Food Banks. This year, the project is transitioning to a community garden. Individual raised beds are being rented to gardeners for $10 a season with an orientation and four hours of donated work required for each participant. Extra produce may be donated to local food banks. To sign up, call Dawn Beyer at 541-450-0656. Thanks to Merrianne Hoffman for Chamber of Commerce News. She writes that their last meeting was pretty amazing because the room was almost full of members and guests. “Really, it was almost standing room only!” she says. Merianne’s report included details of a recent meeting with Doug Pilant of the Transportation Department to discuss how they can help South Tillamook County relieve our parking and traffic problems during the summer weekends. That work is continuing. He’ll discuss his team’s progress on some pretty exciting improvements to the bus service available to us around Pacific City and the Nestucca Valley at next month’s meeting. It happens at noon on Tuesday, April 2 in the banquet room at The Pelican Pub. I appreciate Verne Mobley (who celebrates a birthday this Friday) letting us know that the Easter Egg Hunt will be put on by the partnership between the Lions Club and the Nesko Women’s Club this year. It’s scheduled for 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 30 at Nestucca High School. Two to five year olds will gather at the softball field and 6-10 year olds on the football field. More than 1500 plastic eggs will be filled with anything from dollar bills to candy and certificates redeemable for prizes from local merchants. Neskowin/Nestucca/Sandlake Watersheds Council will host a Nestucca Bay Clean-up from 8:30 - noon on Saturday, April 20 (which is close to

Earth Day, April 22.) Volunteers, in boots and dressed for the weather, will meet at Pacific City boat launch near Bob Straub State Park at 8:30 a.m. Boaters are welcome too. The Council will provide gloves and trash bags, with free juice, coffee and local treats to get us going. Sponsors include: The Grateful Bread Bakery, Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board, Stimulus Café, Tillamook County Parks and Public Works Department, and SOLV, and The Sports-man’s Pub & Grub. For more information, contact Council Chairman Alex Sifford at 503-9652200. Appointments are available now for free preschool screenings happening April 24-6 at Tillamook County Fairgrounds. Last year two hundred and fifty children had their behavioral development, dental status, hearing, motor skills, speech, and vision, among other things, tested a combined value of more than $1,000 per child. The mult-imodular exams (as they’re called) are a cooperative project between the Northwest Regional E.S.D., Tillamook County Head Start, Tillamook Bay Child Care Center, Tillamook County Health Department and others under the leadership of Tillamook County Hospital. To schedule an appointment for a Tillamook County child between the age of three and six, call 503-8152292, 503-368-2292, or 503965-2292. Happy birthday this week to: Kelly Armstrong, Dean Aplin, Ronney Brannon, Tom Cabral, Charleen Coffelt, Laura Cunningham, Cara and Jessica Elder, Shane Faust, Amy Gallant, Jeff Green, Kevin Hale, Bryce Haltiner, Wayne Hancock, Kathy Heathershaw, Jean Johnson, Chloe Love, Verne Mobley, Fred Noe, Jace Owens, Devin Richwine, Karen Riske, Dylan Schmid, Kassidee Streeter, Jeff Turnbaugh, and Clara Wheeler.

Neal, Mel Robinson, Pete Steen, Jerry Thompson, and Bob Yolton agreed to become the Cape Meares Emergency Task Force. They prepared a plan that will benefit all members of our community and includes concrete steps to take. This plan is consistent with the best thinking of the emergency personnel that were in attendance at the meeting. Currently there are two storage containers located in Cape Meares for local residents, both above the inundation zone of a major tsunami. A third location is being considered for the future, but no plans have been finalized regarding its location. Fresh, potable water will be in high demand following a major quake. Our water supply will likely be compromised and it won't be long before temporary supplies of bottled water will be depleted. Highly efficient water purification units will be necessary to supply residents in the community. A unit that will produce up to 24 gallons of purified water per hour is being recommended & donations are being sought in order that it would be available. Recommended is the Crown Berkey unit. These are the ultimate in water filtration and used worldwide for over 150 years. Cape Meares colleagues also recommended that at each of the current storage locations three 44-pound pails of rice and three 4l-pound pails of beans be purchased and stored. (Available at Emergency Essentials). The food would be available for

individuals who have not previously stocked supplies at one of the storage facilities. Donations, or pledges, are being solicited for these items. Pete will be able to answer questions you may have regarding the recommended purchases. Contact Pete Steen 503 3124216 (cell phone). On a lighter note, Pete and Ellen Steen attended the Beachcombers' Fun Fair in Ocean Shores, Washington, the first weekend in March. They displayed floats in a “Treasure Island” setting, with a treasure chest, a sword piercing a skull, “gold” coins, beads shells and rocks. They also displayed blue items they had found on the beach, ranging from plastic floats to foreign bottles to a big crab box, under a “Beachcomber Blues” sign painted by Ciel Downing. Both exhibits garnered first-place ribbons. The Steens enjoyed visiting with other beachcombers, comparing stories and finds, and hearing an update on the Japanese tsunami debris field. While three-fourths of the debris so far has arrived on the Washington coast to only two percent on the Oregon coast, the Steens hold out hope for a new Toyota pickup for Pete to wash ashore here in Cape Meares soon. Nea-Rock Garden Club meets at Koko's restaurant at Alderbrook Golf Course on Wednesday, March 20. Meet at 11:30 a.m. for lunch. Carpool from PUD by 11:15 a.m. Landscapes in the area will be visited.

fourth year in a row, I can’t list everybody’s names, because there are too many. Heartfelt thanks to all of you. It couldn’t have happened without you. There is a vacancy on the Garibaldi Planning Commission, occasioned by the resignation of John Ramer, who’s relocated to Tillamook; the appointment, to be made by the city council, will be for the balance of John’s term, which runs till Jan. 10, 2016. Interested? Contact John or Mary at City Hall (503/3223327). The Planning Commission has been involved in some interesting things lately, tackling first the waterfront zoning (the first major changes since about 1980), a process that took several months, and now the zoning in the downtown core. The Planning Commission usually meets on the fourth Monday of the month, at 6:30 p.m. The Garibaldi Food Pantry will be open Friday, 10-noon at the God’s Lighthouse church, 8th & Garibaldi Ave. (across from the Food Basket). And don’t forget the scholarships—deadlines are approaching for applications. April 1 is the deadline for applications for the Neah-Kah-Nie Graduate Scholarships; those are open to anyone that has graduated from Neah-Kah-Nie High School, from 1954 (the year the first senior class graduated) on. The idea

is to support continuing education; the scholarships are good for vocational schools as well as regular colleges. Jerry Underwood says they’ll be awarding around $10,000 this year. You can get applications from the NKN Career Center at the high school, download them from the school’s Website (, or call Jerry (503/322-3848). Applications must be received at P.O. Box 373, Rockaway Beach, OR 97136 by April 1. And don’t forget the Garibaldi Museum scholarships: April 30 deadline for the high school students, May 30 for TBCC students. The Museum awards one $1,000 scholarship to a TBCC student, and four (one $1,000 and three $750) to Tillamook County high school students (who can come from anywhere in the county). They want a PowerPoint presentation from the TBCC students, essays from the high-schoolers; details and application forms are on the Museum’s Website, The Museum and staff are available for research; call 503/322-8411. With tuition escalating, and financial aid dropping, at nearly all colleges, public and private, these are important resources. Do take advantage of them if you can. And thanks to those providing them.




irst with Easter on its way I would like to inform you about the Manzanita Easter Egg Hunt. It will be at the Underhill Plaza, the Easter Bonnet will be starting at 10:30 a.m., then after it wraps up, the Easter egg hunt will start at exactly 11 a.m., with approximately 2,400 plastic eggs filled with candy. This has always been an exciting event with a lot of children having fun. Way to go Pool - A - Thon, I heard there were 54 swimmers and they swam a total of 2,100 lengths which is equivalent to 30 miles. Extraordinary accomplishment, kids! They do not have a total as of yet, but when they do I will let you know. So proud of them and everyone who donated and sponsored the kids. They have worked very hard. I was informed of the Serendipity Clothing and Toy Exchange; this is a community wide event -- everyone is invited to attend. The exchange is held twice a year, normally in the spring and fall. If you have cloth-

elcome to the first day of spring, 2013! Last weekend, a symphony of mowers serenaded our neighborhood! Warmth, sunshine and blue sky brought us out of our houses; nature gave us time to smell and touch the earth… Come to the Netarts/Oceanside Volunteer Firefighter’s Association famous “Pancake and Burnt Sausage Breakfast” this Saturday, March 23 from 8 to 11 a.m. in the Oceanside Community Center! The all you can eat breakfast includes: pancakes, sausage, scrambled eggs, orange juice, milk, coffee and tea. The prices are $6.00 for adults, and $5.00 for children, under 6 years old free. Proceeds will provide training aids and help with specialty items for the newly remodeled

ing that your children have outgrown, set them aside for our next exchange and trade them in for the next size up. Think of all the money you could save. If you or someone you know is in need of clothing for their child or children, help spread the word about this great opportunity. You don't need to bring clothes or toys in to take advantage of taking things home from the exchange. This exchange is for everyone: the young mothers in need of items and clothes for her new baby, the homeless, to the woman next door, your sister, your daughter, grandaughter or even a friend. The April exchange -- drop off clean children's items (no holes or adult clothing). After 8 a.m. April 12th at the Tillamook United Methodist Church. Exhange is on April 13th at 8 a.m. at the Tillamook United Methodist Church at 3808 12th street. Any questions call 503-812-4667. This is great idea, with how fast children do grow, and if you're a new mom. As I am sure you are aware, Hal's General Store in downtown Nehalem is in the process of moving to their other store across the way, Hal's Emporium; they are combining both stores so now you will be able to find everything in one place. Stop by and see what they have, if you are anything like me you will not be able to leave without purchasing something.

Congratulations and best wishes for Joyce and Jim Valdez, the new proprietors of the deli at Mohler Marketplace (Mohler Co-Op). The new name of the deli is Livi's Burgers & Fries. They have already gotten rave reviews on their hamburgers that are made daily with fresh ground beef. They are open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The menu is as follows: Hamburgers are $3.99 or Basket is $5.99 Cheeseburgers are $4.49 or Basket $6.49. A 16ounce shake is $2.99; chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla, want a malt instead add 50 cents. Soft serve ice cream cones are $1.49, sodas are $1.20, Jo-Jos are $3.99 a pound. Chicken strips are $6.99 a pound, a basket of fries are $1.99 and chicken pieces are leg .75 cents, thigh $1.49, wing 60 cents, and chicken breast is $2.69.

Happy Birthday this week to Duane Graham of Banks, Nancy White of Wheeler and Brittney Tice of Wheeler. Anything out there send it to me at See you soon.

Netarts Station #61. Walk across the street to Oceanside Fire Station #62, where you can purchase I Support Netarts-Oceanside Fire District t-shirts and sweatshirts. You can also do a walkthrough and see the new resident quarters. A firefighter will live there full-time, additional personnel will be assigned to help in Oceanside in the case of a major emergency such as “The Great Divide.” There will be a Netarts Park clean-up gathering this Sunday, March 24, at 10 a.m. Help us work on the park project! Bring mowers, clippers, weed-eaters, chain saws, rakes, gloves, etc. We need to pull trees that have been cut down out of the gully. Oregon schools begin spring vacation the week of March 25! True love is in the air – I want to congratulate Bill and Stevie Johnson for their 55th wedding anniversary on March 22! March 22, 2013 would have been the 100th birthday of Governor Tom McCall, who founded SOLVE Beach cleanups in 1969. We honor the man who made us who we are and what we value as Oregonians. Gov. McCall made a profound impact on our state, passing the nations first “bottle bill” and placing our beached under public ownership. Help continue his legacy of environmental stewardship. The 2012 Beach Clean-up had 3,700 volunteers who combed the beaches and coastline for anything unnatural. I

will provide information/details for the “Great Oregon Beach Cleanup of 2013” in this column next week. Netarts is a small community with a big heart! A heart that cares for animals at the Tillamook Animal Shelter; that cares for “end of life comfort” and Hospice; and breast cancer awareness. Literally, thousands of dollars have been raised by this little village for these causes. The camaraderie, enthusiasm, creativity, love and laughter are contagious! Josiah Darr, reporter from the Headlight Herald will continue his story on “Stop the War in My Rack” spaghetti and meatball dinner that was held at the Schooner on March 12. The breast cancer awareness event benefitted Susan G. Kommen. There is no doubt in my mind that it was not only a great success, but full of genuine smiles of happiness, to be able to give to such a worthy cause! March Madness has begun! The “Sweet Sixteen Basketball Tournament” started, with its anticipation, adrenalin, and excitement. I am a “Zag” – with history being made as Gonzaga is ranked #1 in the nation! Tuesday, March 11, they played St. Mary’s College, which was founded in 1863. Rick Forest’s nephew is a sophomore star for St. Mary’s. Rick – it’s just a game – but Gonzaga is going all the way!

SUGAR BROSIUS 503-653-1449


he mystery of the Muscovy ducks is unraveling. I received an email from Ken Hicks, who lives on the north end of Lake Lytle. He and his wife have been watching over the single white duck since it hatched. Its mom sat on the eggs for six weeks. He would kayak over to check on her regularly. He noticed there were five eggs. After they hatched four were killed by a speeding boat, so one was left. The ducks are quite tame and will eat out of your hand. Then, out of nowhere, two new ones appeared. They were probably dropped off. The three have bonded and come to visit Ken regularly. This particular duck comes out of South America and is domesticated. There are even some restaurants that serve Muscovy duck in our county. Always think ahead has been my motto. The first event of the year for the Rockaway Beach Volunteer Fire Department will be the July 4th Parade. They have a new t-shirt design that they will be selling at the wayside. Make sure you visit them that holiday. Plus they will be putting on the wonderful fireworks display that is known as one of the best on our nation's coastline. Be sure to donate to the fireworks fund when you can. This is an all-volunteer fire department and I personally think they are doing an amazing

hope all of you wore your green and enjoyed your corned beef and cabbage. As I am writing this I am not sure where I will be enjoying mine but the Landing sounds good to me. I got to see three deer in the side yard last week and I also heard a cow mooing, not sure where it was, but yep, it was definitely a cow. Of course the Wustenberg’s have the roosters; I love the sound of them. Try going outside, closing your eyes and just listening. It is amazing the sounds you can hear. Possibly by the time you read this the salmon will have been released. Adult salmon, ranging from 18 to 48 inches long, instinctively know when it is time to migrate back to their home streams. Their extraordinary sense of smell guides them to the mouth of the river or stream where they first entered the ocean. They gather there, waiting. The first rain of the season is often the signal for them to start the journey home, called a salmon run. Once they start swimming upstream to spawn, salmon do not eat. They lose up to one-third of their body weight during the journey. The salmon’s skin grows thicker and their scales disappear. The males develop hooked jaws, the sure sign of a spawner. During their run, salmon swim upstream, resting in pools when they need to regain their strength. The salmon now jump over obstacles that were easier to pass going downstream. The urge to return is so strong that salmon risk everything to go home. Some die just trying. But not Auti, he is definitely going to make the journey home again. He is a strong and determined salmon. Now you know what I know about salmon returning home. No Easter Egg Hunt in Bay City this year, I think we should change that next year and I am officially volunteering to bring it back. Yikes, did I just say that? It is time once again to get

NOTES FROM THE COAST job! Speaking of July 4th, the theme for our 4th of July parade is “Yesterday, Today and Forever.” So get your brains a-thinkin' and head on over to the City Hall or their website and enter the parade. There is no entry fee. Another reminder about the Meals for Seniors French Toast Breakfast. It will be on Sat, Mar 23rd from 8-1pm. As it always is, it's at the St. Mary's by the Sea hall. This would be a great morning to surprise your family and take them to breakfast. I promise yummy food. In a column a few weeks ago, I mistakenly said they had zero government funding... The City of Rockaway Beach graciously gives to the program. What a remarkable town this is. Well, many thanks are needed for the Parks and Rec Bingo now that it's over. First, thank you to all the bingo players who attended. The program brought in more this year than any other year. Without you this wouldn't have happened. Now for the helpers; thanks to Pat Krause and her daughter Cheryl, who brought all the food each week. Thanks to Anita and George, without you it would have been a very cold room with no tables. And no one would have known where to stop without the sign. Thanks to Sue Vincent. Those math skills you have made the afternoon just breeze by so easily. Thanks to all the callers: Pansy and Jerry Raatz, Terry and Ilene, Ole and Dianna, Barbara and Elaine, and Steve Bauer and Ruth. And thanks to Ruth for organizing the whole session of Bingo. Ruth wants to remind you to mark your calendar next year from Jan 13 -Mar 3, 2014. “Give people a piece of our heart rather than a piece of your mind.” That’s Rockaway Beach “Sugar Coated!”

your reservations in for camp at Camp Magruder. Can you smell the moss? Can you hear the dry wood crackling in the cool night? Can you see the wonders of God's cosmos unfolding before your eyes in the high mountain air? Well, if not, it may be time to plan your next camp or retreat with us! We make it easy for you with new catalogs, and a plethora (that's right, a plethora!) of events to choose from. An upcoming pair of events is highlighted below. Check it all out at! Once again I will be attending Camp Hope there as staff member, Krafty Karen. I am collecting Mardi Gras beads again, and the larger cappuccino (empty) cans for making banks. If you have any of these items you may leave them with Judy at the post office or Debby at the library. The next meeting for Your Town at City Hall is March 26th at 5:30 p.m. I hope to see all of you there as it is your town, let’s make some viable changes. And don’t forget you can get on the email list for upcoming meetings by contacting Sierra at City Hall. Sisterchicks in Service (SIS) had a chick and rooster game night last week. The potluck food was amazing and everyone had a great time. Next SIS meeting is Wednesday March 27th and starts at 6 pm with a potluck in the basement of the Bay City Church, I hope you can join us. Last week I also played Bunco with the Bay City Crazy Fun Ladies. I cannot reveal their names as their reputation is at stake. However I can tell you this, these ladies are amazing friends to have. They make me laugh so hard I sometimes cry. What more could a girl want? Other than the adorable man in my life of course. Thank you Jim and all my friends for always being there for me. A big thank you to Dee Nelson for donating her worn flags to the VFW. They are already in the hands of Wauds Funeral Home to be cremated with local vets. What a great program. Boosters meet Friday March 29th at noon for a potluck, short meeting and raffle. Please come and join your neighbors for a fun informative time. Thank you to Gretchen Powers for always making the table centerpieces and decoration so much fun too. Have a great week and see you around town.



Tillamook has just a little too much nature


e have too much nature in our county. Take the moon, for instance. One morning recently I woke way too early wondering, did I leave a light on? No. The moon was shining right in my eyes. And this isn’t the first time, either. Has anyone noticed this seems to happen about once a month? Also, too much wind. My neighbors have weather stations to tell them the wind speed. They watch their weather stations as much as TV. We don’t have a weather station. Instead, we put up a windsock. If the wind comes from the north, good weather; from the south, rain; east, it gets cold. From the west, no one has figured that out, yet. We look at the windsock and say, rain today, and it rains. Why don’t you get a weather station, my neighbor Carol asked? I replied, if I need to know the wind speed, I can just call you. I used to call and say, what was the wind speed last night, Carol? She would tell me and we would chat. Over the years the conversation has truncated. My phone rings. I pick it up. Seventy-two, Carol says, and hangs up. I have no reason to know the wind speed. No one calls and asks, Schubert, what was the wind speed last night? If they did, I’d say,

call Carol. Also, too much rain. I don’t want to complain about the rain, but people in the rain. Actually, it’s my sister’s complaint. My sister came to visit. She looked out the window at the rain. Kids were playing soccer. She had a puzzled look on her face. Don’t they know it’s raining, she SCHUBERT said? One of the first things I bought when I MOORE moved to Oregon in the Jurassic era was an umbrella. Boy, that was stupid. I went out in the rain and opened it up. Passersby shook their head and thought, out-of-stater, (or brain damage). Yesterday I saw a guy walking along, no hat, smoking a cigarette in the rain. Did I think, mental defective who doesn’t know enough to come in out of the rain? No. I thought, Oregonian. Another indicator of too much nature? Deer. Mrs. Green agrees. Mrs. Green likes to grow roses since they grow much bigger in Oregon than they ever did in Missouri. In Missouri, she watered, trained, fertilized, fed, sprayed, pruned and they would fit in a small teacup. In Oregon, if you ignore them they

will grow to the size of dinner plates. Mrs. Green was in heaven. Until she came out one morning with pruning shears and no roses. The deer had eaten them all. Over the next few months, it was sad to see Mrs. Green become obsessed with deer the way Ahab was with his white whale. She put up fences the deer thought were fun to jump over. She spread deer repellant around her yard. They didn’t seem to mind the smell, but I quit visiting. One day I went to deliver some rose catalogues and when I got out of the car I was hit in the face with a stream from a motion-sensor water cannon the deer thought was fun to play in. My neighbor Bob likes to hunt deer. On one trip he came back skunked and had to wait to pull into his drive so six deer could cross the street in front of him to go into his yard to eat his flowers. When Mrs. Green heard this story, she pleaded for Bob to come to her yard to hunt deer. My conclusion? Too much nature. Mrs. Green would agree. If you don’t get your deer, Mrs. Green invites you to bring your 30.06 and hunt in her front yard. Or she would if she were still here. She went back to Missouri. Smaller roses, but less nature.

Great pup

Shy but loving

Conner is a six-month-old pit bull who is very level headed for a yoooungster. Not at all hyper, as some of his breed can be at his age, Conner loves to play and is great with people and other dogs. He’s smart and learns quickly, so he’ll pick up manners easily with just a little training. Conner has been neutered, is current with shots and has microchip identification. He’s a great pup and will be an even greater adult and friend.

Mary Rose is a year old torbie, very playful, loves attention and gets along great with other cats, kids and even dogs. She’s a little shy on first meeting, but opens up as she feels more confident. Mary Rose has been spayed, is litter trained and current with shots. She needs a home where she can stay indoors all the time ... and shower affection on her new family..
