Suspect in stabbing taken to State Hospital


The Tillamook Air Museum is relocating to Madras, where a 64,000-square-foot facility will be built to provide space for the collection of vintage aircrafts. However, the Air Museum’s lease on the blimp hanger in Tillamook does not expire until 2016.

No solutions yet to Air Museum leaving BY JOE WRABEK

The Port of Tillamook Bay doesn’t have a solution to the Air Museum moving to Madras, port manager Michele Bradley told the Headlight Herald. “We’ve only known for a week,” she said. “We understand that the coastal weather is not conducive to the longevity of aircraft and also understand the business decision by the Tillamook Air Museum to move Mr. Erickson's collec-

tion of vintage aircraft to another location where other divisions of their business are located,” Bradley said. “The Port will be working with the Erickson Group through this transitional period the next few years.” The Air Museum’s lease on the blimp hangar doesn’t expire until January 2016, she noted. “We expect many conversations as we both move forward,” she said. Nor are all the aircraft housed at the Port of Tillamook Bay going to be leaving, Bradley told the Headlight Herald.

“Nine or ten” of the aircraft on site belong to the Port of Tillamook Bay, not the Erickson Group – they’re on loan to the port from a U.S. Navy museum in Pensacola, Florida. “Most people do not know the Port of Tillamook Bay started a museum in the hangar prior to what is currently known as the Air Museum,” Bradley advised. When the Erickson Group leased the blimp hangar in 1995, they absorbed the Port’s collection, she said.

Spreading the word to end the word BY SAYDE MOSER

Marissa Zerngast, a senior at Tillamook High School has stepped up to the plate – and asked her fellow students to do the same. Every year for three years, Zerngast has issued a pledge not to use the word retarded (or the “R-Word” as she calls it). “The goal is to inform people who don’t realize when they say the R-word, it’s actually an offensive word,” she said. “So we inform them and ask them to take the pledge.” Zerngast’s mother works for the Tillamook Family Counseling Center, specifically with the intellectually disabled, and asked her daughter to be the ambassador for the cause and help spread the word to end the word. The official organization ( is sponsored by the Special Olympics and offers insight and tips on how to encourage others to take the pledge. For her first year, Zerngast just had the official sign-up sheet from the website. The next year, she had stickers that students got to sign. This year, she switched it up again - actually painting a wall in the high school and letting students make hand prints on the wall and sign their name to it. The handprints are white or blue, the official colors of Zerngast spent an entire day last week monitoring the wall while students lined up to take the pledge. More than 200 handprints decorated the wall by the end of the day. “Last year we wanted to get half of the student body to sign up and we got about 350,” she said. “And there’s only about 400 students so we did pretty good.” She also said several teachers told her they noticed a difference in the students who took the pledge. “They’d either stop themselves or catch


themselves saying it and correct it,” she said. “Everyone is really aware which I think is a big success.” Zerngast also made a video on Youtube about her project, which can be found by searching Tillamook High School Spread the Word 2013. While she won’t be around next year, she’s hoping someone will pick up the cause and continue to support the pledge. “I’m hoping it doesn’t completely die out,” she said. “There have been a few kids who seem interested in caring it on.”

The Nehalem dredging saga OP-ED BY CAMERON LA FOLLETTE AND RALPH THOMAS The Nehalem River is the lifeblood of the little towns of Wheeler and Nehalem. So a distressing series of missteps that led to a dredging fiasco in the river is having far-reaching consequences. The Port of Nehalem applied to the US Army Corps of Engineers and the Oregon Dept. of State Lands in November 2011 for required permits to dredge the Wheeler waterfront. This project was identified as the fourth highest county priority by the Tillamook County Commissioners because impinging mudflats means that Wheeler has continuously had to extend its docks further into the Nehalem River, thus encroaching on the navigation channel. The Wheeler project was small, only about 300 cubic yards. The Port opened discussions with the City of Wheeler and Wheeler Marina for project funding. The Port wanted both to pay for the dredging via an open-ended funding agreement. Both refused. As a result, budget talks about project funding never developed to the point of city council decision-making. The Port changed its application to DSL and the Corps in December 2011; it still included the Wheeler Marina dredging, but also dredging at Deer Island Slough opposite the City of Nehalem waterfront. Now the Port proposed to dredge 5,000 cubic yards from the river.

That’s about 500 dump truck loads of sediment. Deer Island Slough is not a navigable channel, and the Nehalem part of the project was projected to cost upwards of $350,000 and benefit mainly those with docks along the Slough. The application specified that only those willing to “participate in the cost of the project” would be dredged: Port of Nehalem, City of Nehalem and Wheeler Marina. Then the Port, through an unsigned letter in April 2012, probably by the Port’s agent Bill Campbell, quietly notified the agencies that it was dropping Wheeler from the dredging project because “the cost to continue was deemed to expensive and provided no realistic cost-benefit ratio that would endure under present operational and costsharing parameters.” Neither City of Wheeler nor Wheeler Marina were notified of this decision. The dredging proceeded in Deer Island Slough once permits were acquired. Wheeler residents and city officials alike were shocked in mid-January to see a mound of dredge spoils rearing up in the middle of the river just above Nehalem Bridge. Investigation discovered that the DSL permit allowed the Port to use “in-flow dispersal” of the dredge spoils – meaning that they would just disperse in the river current, flowing downstream to Wheeler and on into Nehalem Bay, where they would settle out. However, the dredge spoils

“I need to be in the hospital real bad,” White told the judge from the video room in the jail. “Everyone is agreeing with you on that,” said Trevino. White was brought to the jail in the beginning of March after the Major Crimes Team was called to her house in Rockaway Beach to investigate an assault. She and her husband were both transported to the hospital with stab wounds. Detective Paul Fournier of the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office told the Headlight Herald that investigators believe White began attacking her husband in his sleep with a knife before inflicting serious injuries to herself. The OSH evaluation will determine whether or not White suffers from a mental illness; whether she understands the nature of her crimes and if she will be able to participate during a trial. The next court date has been set for May 28 at 1 p.m.

Marissa Zerngast has been encouraging her classmates to take the pledge for three years.

Per her attorney’s request, Dawn White of Rockaway Beach – the suspect in an attempted murder-suicide – is being transported to the Oregon State Hospital in Salem for an evaluation before standing trial. “It is in everyone’s best interest that she be transported Dawn White there,” said White’s attorney. White, 59, has been housed at the Tillamook jail and according to Judge Mari Trevino, Oregon State Hospital (OSH) has up to 30 days after receiving the request to finish the evaluation. “They tend to wait 30 days to do it,” Trevino warned White and her attorney. Trevino assured White they would do everything they could to get her to the hospital “sooner rather than later.”

New York Cheesecake

SALEM - On Saturday, March 23, the Oregon Future Farmers ofAmerica Association, with more than 2,000 members in attendance, awarded Senator Betsy Johnson (D-Scappoose) and Representative Greg Smith (RHeppner) with Honorary State FFA Degrees. “The Honorary State FFA Degree is the highest honor our state association can bestow upon its friends,� said Lee Letsch, executive secretary. “It is because of the partnerships we develop with people such as Senator Johnson and Representative Smith that the FFA is able to grow and prosper.� "It is a privilege to have a state


On April 5 my friend Al Wylder, of Hebo, turned 90. He asked me for this cheesecake for his birthday. Al was a professional sports trainer with the Cincinnati Reds in the 1960s and the San Francisco Giants in the 1970s. He travelled all over the country with his baseball teams, eating in the best restaurants in the biggest cities. The man loves to eat. As he tells it, “Whenever I was in New York I would buy a New York style cheesecake and take it home with me. Oh my gosh, were they ever good. The best! But your cheesecake,â€? he said to me, “is very, very close. In fact, I’d have to say it’s next best cheesycake I’ve tasted.â€? I’ve adapted this recipe for Cordon Rose Cream Cheesecake from Rose Levy Beranbaum, a famous New York pastry chef, writer and teacher of baking arts. If my cheesecake rivals the best New York style cheesecakes Al Wylder has eaten, all the credit goes to Rose Levy Beranbaum’s fabulous recipe. New York Cheesecake Crust: (The crust is optional; the cake is firm enough to be unmolded without a crust, with makes a wonderful gluten-free dessert.) 4 ounces plain animal crackers 2 tablespoons sugar 3 tablespoons melted butter Filling: 20 ounces cream cheese (2 ½ 8 ounce pkgs.) at room temperature 1 cup sugar 1 tablespoon cornstarch (skip the cornstarch for a suitable Passover dessert) 3 large eggs 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla ½ teaspoon salt 2 ½ cups sour cream Cut parchment paper to fit bottom and sides of eight inch x springform pan. Spray pan lightly with canola cooking spray, and place parchment on bottom and sides of pan. In a food processor, crush animal crackers and sugar, and add enough melted butter to moisten mix so it will clump like wet sand. Press into bottom of springform pan and bake approximately 15 minutes at 325 degrees, until crust if golden brown and fragrant. In a clean food processor (you don’t want crumbs from the crust in the cheesecake) or a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese and sugar until completely smooth. Add cornstarch, vanilla, lemon juice, salt, and eggs. Mix until smooth, occasionally, scraping down the sides. Add sour cream last and combine until fully incorporated. Wrap springform pan in three layers of heavy-

duty large tin foil, reaching up beyond the sides of the pan, making it waterproof. You need a larger pan, such as a roaster, or a 13 x 9 baking dish, to set the springform pan in. Pour the filling into the springform pan. Set it (wrapped in foil) into the roaster pan. Fill the roaster pan with hot water (at least an inch). I find that it’s easiest to fill the pan with hot water on the oven rack, and gently slide the rack into place, being careful not to slosh the water. If you want to, you can create a foil cap for the cake with another, smaller piece of foil. This will prevent the top from browning. To make the cap, crimp the edges of the top piece of foil to the heavyduty foil that the pan is wrapped it. Seal it, so that steam can’t get in. Bake at 350 degrees for an hour and 20 minutes, and then turn the oven off without opening the door. Leave the cheesecake in the cooling oven for another hour. Remove the foil cap, take cheesecake out of foil wrap and chill overnight or for eight hours. To unmold, run a butter knife gently around the edge, between the foil and the pan. Release the spring and remove the outside. You can serve the cheesecake from the bottom of the springform pan, taking care not to serve the parchment paper on the bottom. You can also put plastic wrap over the top of the cheesecake, set something flat on top, like a cookie sheet, flip it over, so the cake is upside down, remove the bottom of the springform pan and the parchment, set your serving platter upside down on the crust, flip it back over and gently remove the plastic wrap. You can smooth the sides of the cake with an offset spatula and serve plain, New York style, of with canned pie cherries. Happy Birthday Al Wyler. I hope you enjoy your cheesecake.

Cormorant hazing to begin on Oregon coast With hundreds of thousands of young salmon now making their way toward the ocean, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is ramping up efforts to make sure they get there and aren’t picked off by hungry birds along the way. For the next month and a half, volunteers assisting ODFW staff will haze cormorants in several coastal estuaries to keep them from feasting on salmon smolts as the young fish make their way to the Pacific Ocean. Cormorants are large seabirds that inhabit Oregon’s estuaries during the spring and summer. They are voracious eaters and can consume up to two pounds of fish per day. Cormorant predation has been identified as a significant threat to the outbound migration of salmon and steelhead. To reduce this threat, ODFW will haze the birds in an attempt to disrupt their feeding patterns at the mouths of coastal rivers. “Our goal is to interrupt the birds’ feeding patterns while young fish are still in the estuaries to improve their chances of getting to the ocean,� said Lindsay Adrean, ODFW’s avian predation coordinator. Volunteers will be working with ODFW in Tillamook and Alsea bays and at the mouths of the Columbia, Nehalem, Nestucca and Coquille rivers through the end of May. The hazing effort will include driving at the

birds in small boats and, occasionally, firing at them with small pyrotechnics. Manpower is being provided by the Clatsop Fisheries Project, Port of Nehalem, Port of Bandon, North Coast Salmon and Steelhead Enhancement Fund, and Alsea Sportsmen’s Association. ODFW will provide boat fuel and program oversight. Cormorants are protected

under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, so extra care must be exercised to ensure the birds are not injured or killed. Cormorant populations have been increasing in some areas along the Oregon coast and Columbia River so in addition to hazing ODFW is conducting population surveys to identify opportunities to better strike a balance between the needs of birds and fish.

Tillamook High School looks at re-envisioning honors program Next year, Tillamook High School will be “looking differently� at its honors program, according to Principal Kevin Barnes. The changes will only affect the Freshman class, however, who will still be able to take honors classes in English and physical science, but the classes will be integrated into the regular classroom. “They will still have access to honors opportunities, but within the regular classroom,� Barnes explained. “They’ll all be in the same class.� Barnes said the change is coming because of the huge discrepancy amongst the students who access the honors program being predominantly white. “We have few Hispanic, or lower income students who take advantage of that program,� he said, adding that 50 percent of the student body is considered low income; yet only 20 percent of those students participate in honors programs. Likewise, 20 percent of students are Hispanic and only eight percent are enrolled in honors classes. “There are concerns as to

why these students aren’t accessing the honors classes,� he said. “So some schools across the country are removing the stand-alone honors courses and approaching the delivery of the content differently.� Barnes said they plan to implement the changes at the Freshman level only and see how it goes before possibly following a similar structure in the upper level grades. “We could have done this all in one fell swoop, but the idea is to start small and train the teachers and look at the data to see if there’s some success in accessing and achieving honors credits this way,� he said. Barnes estimates it will take at least a year before it’s clear whether or not the new approach is working. He said it’s not uncommon for schools to be making this type of switch, adding that the honors program has been highly contested among parents and teachers for a long time. “There’s been some good conversations out of this decision and people are very passionate about where they stand,� he said. “But there’s no one solution; there are different philosophies on integration.� The integration plans also

come on the heels of Gov. Kitzhaber’s 40/40/20 goal, where 100 percent of Oregonians will graduate from high school – 40 percent will go onto a four-year or higher degree; 40 percent will receive a two-year degree or complete some sort of certificate program and the other 20 percent will have graduated from high school. “Traditionally we know that honors students are more likely to go on to college,� Barnes said. Barnes also said of the entire student body, only 18 percent enroll in honors classes, so they’re behind where they need to be to meet the 40/40/20 goal. “We need to get to 80 percent,� he said. “We won’t achieve that in a year but we need to change how the students can access these classes.� And for the most part, Barnes said the teachers are already used to differentiating course work for the ability of their students, so adding the honors students shouldn’t be too difficult for them. “There will be time for them to redevelop their curriculum so that students can earn honors credits in that class if they want to,� he said. “The

teachers are already used to mixed ability in their classrooms so it’s not adding anything new – just more – to incorporate these kids.� Sean Rumage, a junior at Tillamook High School and an honors student himself, doesn’t agree with the integration of honors students into the regular classroom. “I don't think it’s a good thing because more than anything else, the honors program is about being in an environment and having the ability to have higher level discussion and go in depth with topics,� he said. “You can't do that in a normal class because often times the kids aren’t motivated to have those conversations and sometimes don't have the capabilities.� Rumage predicts that the honors students will wind up being bored and said there are better ways to meet the 40/40/20 goals. “If we’re having a problem meeting that goal, I don’t think bringing people down is going to get us there,� he said. “What myself and other kids wanted to see was to raise the rigor in both levels - the honors and the regular classes – to better help meet the 40/40/20 rule.�

Flood insurance presentation April 10 BY JOE WRABEK

New flood insurance regulations promulgated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and rising flood insurance rates will be the subject of a special presentation at Wednesday morning’s regular meeting of the Tillamook County Board of Commissioners April 10. The meeting begins at 10 a.m. Christine Shirley, flood insurance program coordinator for the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD), will be reviewing the new rules, which were issued April 1 by FEMA. The new regulations implement the Biggert-Waters Act passed by Congress last year. Businesses and second-home owners in


ook County date from the 1970s; they’re scheduled to be replaced with new, potentially more accurate “LIDAR� maps – the same technology used for the tsunami inundation zone maps that came out last year. The new flood maps are supposed to come out May 31, Shirley said. The new maps could result in people’s homes or businesses ending up in flood zones that hadn’t been in flood zones before, and in others no longer being in flood zones. “When the maps are final, people can look up their addresses,� Shirley said. The commissioners’ meeting will be videotaped by Jane Scott, and will be available for viewing on “TCTV Online� ( and on charter cable, channel 4. The program will air Sunday.

now� suggests this November’s Veterans Day ceremonies will be able to be held in the blimp hangar, Sollman said. The Air Museum moving is “a major loss to the community,� County Commissioner Bill Baertlein said. “The [Port] Board is going to have to decide what to do.� Baertlein was president of the Tillamook Port Commission before being elected county commissioner last fall. Though the Air Museum is often cited as Tillamook’s second-biggest tourist attraction, tourist counts lag well behind those at the cheese factory. The Air Museum, Baertlein noted, “is off the beaten path.� The old Tillamook Naval Air Station south of Tillamook – and a couple of miles off Highway 101 -wasn’t built as a tourist attraction, he said. The old blimp hangar needs work, Baertlein noted. It was originally built to last the duration of World War II – which



“Those items, including static displays and other WWII items from the Navy, as well as items donated over the years, will not be leaving Tillamook,� Bradley said. One option for the Port, then, is to operate an air museum of its own, either using port personnel or leasing the space to another private contractor. The vintage aircraft and other war memorabilia are the main reason the annual Veterans Day celebration is held at the Air Museum, Korean War veteran John Sollman said. “The military aspect – the airplanes – are the big draw,� he noted. Many were aware the Air Museum’s lease would be coming up for renewal, Sollman said, but Air Museum management “were very tightlipped about it.� The idea that the Air Museum might be moving out of the county, he said, “is a contingency we hadn’t contemplated.� The Air Museum’s mantra of “business as usual – for right

Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs) will see their flood insurance premiums rise 25 percent every year until they reach “actuarial rates� – sufficient to cover actual losses. Huge payouts from Hurricane Katrina had bankrupted the Federally subsidized flood insurance system even before Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast last winter. Primary residences face premium increases, too, if there have been “severe repetitive losses,� which Shirley defined as “where the cost to repair the loss exceeds the value of the home.� There have been just 11 of those “severe repetitive losses� in Oregon, and none in Tillamook county, Shirley told the Headlight Herald. An additional wrinkle in the flood insurance program is new maps. “Flood Insurance Rate Maps� for much of Tillam-

“The Key to the Oregon Coast�

ended 68 years ago. The giant doors at one end (where the “guppi� cargo plane is parked) are having trouble closing, Baertlein said, and the doors at the other end don’t open at all. The hangar needs to be reroofed – but there are four layers of roofing on the building already, and it’s questionable how much more weight the wooden structure can stand. There’s 13 acres of tin on the blimp hangar’s roof, making reroofing a daunting – and expensive – job. The port district considered using some of the money coming from FEMA, the Federal

emergency Management Agency, to rehabilitate the blimp hangar, but “it didn’t happen because of the engineering study,� Baertlein said. That study estimated the work would cost $15 million – one third of the FEMA money. Instead, the FEMA funds went into projects that offered hope of a return. The building still needs the $15 million worth of work, Baertlein noted. Whether to sink the money into the blimp hangar is something the community has to decide, he said. “There is still the potential for moving forward,� he suggested.

Wheeler Marina at a fairly low tide in 2010 (the situation is still the same, perhaps a bit worse).

DREDGE: However, the dredge spoils upon examination turned out not to be “fine sediments� but heavier, gravelly materials that would clearly not disperse in the hoped-for manner. How did this happen? Most of the responsibility goes to the Corps of Engineers as leader of the Portland Sediment Evaluation Team (PSET). They underestimated the extent of gravel and cobbles and instead recommended in-water disposal as if the dredge spoils were fine sediments. DSL is responsible for additional efforts to disperse the dredge island, ignoring the effect this would have on downstream communities, especially Wheeler. Neither considered where the spoils would ultimately settle. The Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW), though they reviewed the dredging application, did not propose any conditions that would have effectively protected the Nehalem River. Then there is the financial angle. Further investigation showed that the Port told the City of Nehalem that the Deer Island Slough part of the project would be funded entirely with Port monies. Dale Stockton, who is Port of Nehalem Commission President and Nehalem City Council President, led the discussion. Nehalem initially hoped for a State Marine Board grant to aid in the city’s cost for the dredging, but once the Marine Board notified the city there were unlikely to be funds, the Port assured the city that the Port would bear the cost. City of Nehalem minutes twice reiterates this assertion by Dale Stockton, speaking for the Port: in November 2012 and December 2012. Yet back in 2011, the Port’s application specified that the City of Nehalem would help pay for the dredging. So Wheeler’s urgentlyneeded dredging was never done, and there is a dredge island in the Nehalem River that has ruined a fine fishing spot. Most perplexing is the preferential treatment the City of Nehalem received at the Port’s hands, while Wheeler was dropped from the project. Why? The dredge island can no longer be seen, but it is still there. The initial outcry prompted DSL and the Port of Nehalem to flatten the pile. As of March 12, ODFW reported that the dredge pile is 30-40 yards in diameter, rising from a 20-foot depth to an eightfoot depth. It has not dis-

persed. Continued pressure from DSL to the Port of Nehalem to disperse the pile is worrisome to Wheeler residents, who fear the dredge spoils will simply settle downstream a little ways and add to the sediment already clogging Wheeler’s waterfront. The aftermath of this fiasco continues. The project’s DSL permit will remain open and active to mid-November. The high cost of permitting is beyond the means of small cities and waterfront businesses, as is clear from figures cited in this article. The Port of Nehalem should therefore restore the dredging of Wheeler’s waterfront that was originally the centerpiece of the Port’s application, and complete it sometime during the fall in-water work window. This would be much more cost effective for both the agencies and for Wheeler, which would otherwise have to pay $60,000 or more for a new application, as well as wait at least a year for the agency approvals. Wheeler residents are also requesting DSL to require that the dredge spoils be removed from the river and taken to an appropriate upland location. This should have been the original outcome. This debacle certainly raises more questions than answers (so far) about cronyism at the Port of Nehalem. It should prompt scrutiny of the Port’s mission, financial management and preferential treatment of Nehalem over Wheeler.

Revamping a blimp hanger BY JOE WRABEK Another economic development/roads idea… I can’t take credit for this one (feel free to blame me for taking it seriously, however) – it was an April Fools Day joke by Oregon Coast Today some April Fools Days back. Joe Wrabek One of the News Reporter biggest potential tourist attractions in Tillamook County is that huge blimp hangar on Port of Tillamook Bay property south of town. Built by the U.S. Navy during World War II and capable of housing at least four (and sometimes more) giant blimps at one time, it’s the largest wooden arch construction building in the world. A pair of them were originally built; one burned down some 15 years ago (it had been used for hay storage, which may not have been a great idea). The other one is still standing. It houses the Tillamook Air Museum, a collection of World War II (and later) vintage aircraft, which mostly do run. For a price, you can get rides. The Air Museum mostly doesn’t get a lot of traffic; yes, the letters on the roof of the blimp hangar proclaiming “Air Museum” are visible all the way from Tillamook, but still, not a lot of tourists stop; the facility is a few miles off Highway 101, just too far off the beaten path. That’s why the folks who own the Tillamook Air Museum are moving their stuff to Madras, to a new facility they’re building out there. Yes, it’s in central Oregon, but they expect to be more accessible and therefore increase their traffic. And that, when it happens about three years from now, will once again leave the people of Tillamook County owning a vacant blimp hangar in the middle of nowhere – biggest wooden arch construction building in the world – and wondering what to do with it. Wherewith, the idea. What Oregon Coast Today had suggested – in fact, that April Fools Day, they’d reported the state of Oregon was going to do it – is

re-routing Highway 101 through the blimp hangar, as a sort of free-standing tunnel. It’s worth considering. For some distance south of Tillamook, Highway 101 is running mostly through farmland. This isn’t to diss farmland, but it does beg the question whether it’s important that it be this farmland. The tourist attractions - Munson Falls, Elks Park, Sandlake – are all further south. Does it matter exactly how one gets there? Yes, this section of Highway 101 is straight – but straight obviously didn’t matter anywhere else on Highway 101. On the plus side, tourists wouldn’t have to be propositioned to “come visit the blimp hangar” – they’d be driving right to it, and through it. It’s possible to envision a whole gaggle of “tourist-harvesting” businesses springing up around the new manmade “tunnel.” It might make the Port of Tillamook Bay’s commercial and industrial properties more marketable, too, if Highway 101 were closer. Right now, those brand-new warehouses and offices the Port has built with FEMA money are, like the blimp hangar, rather off the beaten path. And are mostly vacant. This proposal doesn’t change their location so much as re-define it. Where would the money come from for this noble endeavor? My suggestion would be Federal gas taxes, that big pot of money that can only be used to build new highways, not repair old ones. The re-routing of Highway 101 through the blimp hangar would qualify – we would be building a road where (shall we say) no road had gone before. If it were built properly (much of Highway 101, built during the Depression, is not) it could last a lot longer than what’s out there now. I’d recommend for starters erecting of signs along existing Highway 101, of the “Coming Soon – World’s Largest Freestanding Wooden Tunnel” variety, and then going to work on our Congressional delegation. Like any attempt to “re-purpose lemons” to make lemonade, it’s going to take some effort. And thanks, Oregon Coast Today, for an idea that’s not just for April Fools any more.

READERS’ OPEN FORUM Vote yes for roads Kudos to “The case for a tourist tax for county roads” staff editorial Wed., March 20. I intend to vote yes for the road bond. The county road department functions at a high level. They have been very responsive in a timely manner to requests for help. They need our help to make needed significant improvements. Vote yes for roads.

Vivian Starbuck Bay City, Ore.

Why we’re voting yes for roads We don’t want to see our taxes go up, but after careful consideration, we are voting YES for our county roads. Here’s why. It’s affordable: Interest rates are at historic lows; it will never be less expensive to borrow the money for the road bonds. And with the jail bond expiring next year and the hospital bond expiring two years later, the actual impact of the road bond will be less than $5 a year per $100,000 of assessed value. It’s necessary: Our roads are terrible. We all know it, and they will only get worse unless we reinvest in them. The federal money is gone and the federal government is broke. Nobody else is going to bail us out. We need to solve this ourselves. It’s intelligent: We have a bipartisan, dedicated citizens road committee that looked at all the options and this is the only one that provides enough funding to fix our roads. We have the right person to do it: We have a top notch public works director in Liane Welch whom we can trust to spend this money wisely. The citizens of Tillamook County have shown that we can get through tough times over and over again. We do it by joining together, rolling up our sleeves, and getting things done. We see it during floods and windstorms, in our support of our youth, and the way neighbors help neighbors. Let’s do it again and pass this road bond so that we can save our roads.

Let me get this right. Rob Trost and Doug Rosenberg, who have made a lot of money through property development in our area, purchased The Old Mill Marina out of tax foreclosure at what I believe was a very good deal. Now, because of the high cost of dealing with one of the liabilities that came with that property, they would like the public to pay for the removal of that problem (the

smokestack) by having the National Guard do it. But it would have to be on public property. So... they are willing to give us a small patch around it. Possibly the least valuable part of their parcel, as it is situated where there is limited use or accessibility. Given their estimate of $500,000 to remove this problem, perhaps if the property given to the public equaled that value as a percentage of their purchase price at acquisition plus taxes and improvements since, it would be fair. Anything less than that is a giveaway to developers who want to profit at the public's expense. Shame on us if we let ourselves be used in this way.

Leo Adams Tillamook, Ore.

In response to "What is Truth" by Bill Thwaits: I would like to point out that the term "New World Order" came into usage after WW II when a re-arrangement of the world map was discussed and other changes were planned, as well as establishing the American dollar as the world’s reserve currency. George Herbert Walker Bush and George Bush liked the NWO term and used it many times in speeches and news conferences; Obama also used the term because America and the rest of the world are changing enormously, are they not? We are moving toward an even newer world order. Depending on your conspiracy meter, it can either be a good thing, a bad thing, or a wait and see thing. The latest issue of Capital Press had a big article on Agenda 21 and a lot of information on what it was about. Again, check your conspiracy meter: a good thing, a bad thing, or a wait and see thing? As far as Fox news goes, many, many studies have been done that show that people who never pay attention to the news, don't read about the news, and don't use the internet - they just are plain not interested in what is happening, are smarter than the viewers of FOX concerning international or American news. Now you know. It is really hard to find truth today. I disconnected my TV set because as far as truth goes, it won't be found where the ownership of TV media is concentrated to a few global corporations, who like it when everybody thinks along the same lines and believes the same things. It helps everyone to get along without the need to think too much. No conspiracy meter needed here. Here are some things that I don't like in this New World Order: the use of the term "Homeland Securit.y" It reminds me of Germany, marching, marching, marching, destroying everything to protect "The Homeland." I hope it falls out of usage. The second thing I don't like is

Eric Holder admitting that some people and institutions are so big, wealthy, and powerful that it is the policy of the United States to hesitate to prosecute them no matter how terrible their crime. Think about that for a minute! I learned that the banks in this country can take money out of individual accounts just like they did in Cyprus. Probably because of the Patriot Act, or the Financial Services Modernization Act. Another thing that upsets me is that new Monsanto bill signed into law that states that even if future research shows that GMOs or GE seeds cause significant health problems, cancer, etc, anything, that the federal courts no longer have any power to stop their spread, use, or sales.

Dixie Gainer Nehalem, Ore.

Please vote I’m always looking for how Tillamook County ranks in comparison to the other counties of Oregon. Seldom does our county stand out from the others. I recently found a quality where Tillamook is in a class of its own. Unfortunately, it’s for PCI (Pavement Condition Index) and we’re on the wrong end of the list. No county in Oregon has a PCI of less than 70, except for Tillamook. We have a PCI of 48. It’s official. We have the worst roads in the state. The upcoming road bond gives us a chance to do something about the miserable condition of our roads. The last time the issue was voted on, 44 percent of us couldn’t be bothered to vote. This is pathetic in a state with vote by mail. Please don’t let this issue be decided by barely half of the voters. If you’re not registered, please register. You have until April 30 to register. You can get forms at the library or county clerk’s office, or you can register online. You can mail the forms back, or drop them off at the courthouse. It’s a myth that they use the roll of registered voters for jury duty. It’s a myth that having a felony on your record disqualifies you from voting.

Jim Heffernan Tillamook, Ore.

Vote yes and correct the road problem Again we have the opportunity to correct a deficiency in our county that is costing the public untold losses in ruined tires, bent wheels and other structural damage each year. Just a few weeks ago I hit a pot hole in a county road that resulted in a blown tire and bent rim. Today’s low profile tires do not give any protection from this but results in repeat business for

tire and wheel companies. For only 36 cents per thousand in property taxes, we can begin to correct this problem that is only getting worse. Please vote yes May 21 on the Tillamook County road bond.

Harold Schild Tillamook, Ore.

Stand for common sense gun legislation It was with great sadness that I saw the Tillamook Sporting Goods’ sign that announced that assault weapons and high capacity magazines were in stock. I wonder if, forbid, a Newtownlike tragedy occurred here, would this store owner think, “the gun and ammunition were legal, so it’s not my fault, it’s not my concern. I’m just trying to make an honest living?” Could the owner sleep at night knowing that he or she sold that weapon that had murdered innocent lives in order to make a profit? What does it say about this community, this state, and this country that we value the almighty dollar so much that we will fight tooth and nail to preserve our ability to sell these weapons of mass destruction? What if that sign read, “we refuse to sell assault weapons bans and high magazine bans?” I support the Second Amendment. I hunted in my youth, when my dad not only taught me about gun safety, but also about respect for the life I was taking. As I grew older, I chose not to hunt, but I believe everyone has the right to hunt if they chose to do so. I believe that we have the right to defend ourselves and our homes. I don’t believe we need assault weapons to do so. The well-funded lobbyists like the NRA love to quote the Second Amendment but they always leave out the part where it says “… A well regulated militia…” It remains to be seen if any gun legislation will even be allowed to come up for a vote in the US Congress, even though the vast majority of us support background checks, gun owners and non-gun owners alike, according to several nationwide polls. Please contact your legislators and let them know you stand for common sense gun legislation and that you will watch their votes and use your vote accordingly. Their contact numbers are published in every Headlight Herald, so take a moment and write, phone, email them today. Anti-gun control advocates may be in the minority, but it is a very vocal and well-funding minority. Our legislators have been hearing from them, how about you?

Clean Water Festival draws 280 4th graders LETTERS: BY JOE WRABEK

Resolution of the Oregon Republican Party In Support of the Second Amendment of the US Constitution

Tillamook County’s 12th “Clean Water Festival� was held Tuesday, April 2, at Twin Rocks Friends Camp, with 280 kids attending. All fourth graders, the kids came from all three school districts in the county – Neah-KahNie, Tillamook, and Nestucca – for a day of hands-on education about water. The event, held every April, is organized by the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership (TEP). “It’s fun to see all the kids returning,� TEP executive director Lisa Phipps said, “and to see so many new faces.� Most of the attendees had been through TEP’s “Down by the Riverside� program when they were thirdgraders, she said. The 92 adults on hand – almost one for every three kids – were manning exhibits, teaching classes or leading groups from class to class. Classes were held everywhere in the Friends Camp’s campus, from the chapel to the auditorium to a tent on the shore of adjacent Spring Lake. Kids got to “build a shorebird,� dressing up a classmate in ridiculous-looking props – feathers, a beak, wings, feet – as they learned about avian adaptation (a similar class had kids “build a duck,� again using a classmate as a model). They got to meet “up close and personal� two of the falcons Kort Clayton uses for seagull control at the Tillamook transfer station; they got to handle newts (harvested by a quartet of high school students), and study under microscopes bugs they’d collected themselves from Spring Lake.


Students from all three school districts got hands-on education about water.

In Lynn Howell’s class on the water cycle, billed as “The Incredible Journey,� kids are water droplets, rolling a die that dictates where their next “stage� is going to be, and assembling a charm bracelet of different-colored beads that record where they’ve been. It’s got to be memorable, Howell said. “You’ve got ‘em for seven minutes and then you lose them.� The Clean Water Festival is funded partly by the state Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), and partly by TEP. DEQ had held a Clean Water Festival in Portland, Phipps told the Headlight Herald, “and wanted to see if the model would work elsewhere.� Tillamook offered itself as a site for a pilot project 12

years ago, and TEP provided the staff. It’s been going on ever since. “Over the years, we’ve been able to attract more presenters,� Phipps said. In the exhibit hall, the Coast Guard Auxiliary talked water safety, staff from the Pioneer Museum promoted the new Kichis Point Reserve, the hospital had graphic cutaways of the human body (which is mostly water), and Tillamook County Solid Waste talked about garbage (and how it can end up in the water). There were worms, and baby salmon from Oregon Fish and Wildlife. A big hit were the twin kayaks that TEP had on display promoting the Water Trail. During the months prior to the festival, festival coordinator

Dean Bones visited classrooms to lead natural resource activities in preparation for the Clean Water Festival. Those visits provided students with background information about water quality and provided educators with ways to integrate science with other academic subjects. TEP’s next big educational event for kids, “Down by the Riverside,� happens May 14, 15 and 16 at Hoquarton Slough in Tillamook and May 22 at Alder Creek Farm north of Nehalem. Third-graders from all three school districts will be attending, plus students from three private schools, Neskowin Valley School in South County, Fire Mountain Academy in North County, and the Adventist School in Tillamook.

Dr.Robert Shelley Edna Redberg

Earl Ervin Finley Jr. passed away on April 2, 2013 in Seaside, Ore., at the age of 88. Earl was born in Pine Bluff, Ark. on June 13, 1924 to Earl Sr. and Sallie (Puckett) Finley. He moved to Los EARL Angeles at the FINLEY JR. age of 12. Earl grew up listening to big bands and fooling around with a little guitar. He served his country honorably through the United States Army. After the service Earl decided that he wanted to become a musician. He enrolled in the Los Angeles Conservatory of Music where he studied guitar. After college he played guitar with the famous "Bob Wills & The Texas Playboys" and Ole Rasmussen & “The Nebraska Cornhuskers” to name a few. When the band split up, Earl called it quits and took a job as an engineer. He would still play a couple nights a week, but not full time. At the age of 22, Earl married Pauline Creekmore in the spring of 1946. They were together nine years and had one son and one daughter. Earl then married Norma Thompson. They were together 27 years and had a daughter together. Norma passed away in 1986. After Norma passed away, Earl re-married Pauline Creekmore. They lived together in Grants Pass, Ore. before moving to the Tillamook area in 2002. Later in life, Earl was honored by being inducted into the Sacramento Western Swing Society Hall of fame and later into the Seattle Western Swing Music Society's Pioneers of Western Swing.

Prayers for Rockaway


From left: George Hodgdon, Pastor David Whitehead, Pastor Marv Kasemeier, Pastor Duane Hull, Pastor Jeff Coon, Pastor Doug Edwards, Linda Hanratty, Jerry Baker, Rodney Breazile. The five Tillamook County church leaders, with supporters, gathered in the rain Thursday morning on the side steps of Rockaway City Hall to pray for “an attitude of unity” in the often fractured community. “This has been a fighting and bickering town for a long time,” one noted. “We pray the argumentative spirit will be gone,” pastor Kasemeier said. The brief prayer session, following a ministers’ meeting at St. Mary’s church in Rockaway, had been suggested by Breazile, a local business owner and former Rockaway councilor.

Cape Meares loop closure update Despite a drier than normal winter in the area, the slide on the Cape Meares Loop Road between mileposts 1 and 2.5 has continued a slow but steady movement, according to the latest survey taken from Feb. 18 to March 14. Tillamook County closed the road on January 11, 2013 due to the extensive slide movement. The county has also received approval from the Federal Highways Administration (FHWA) to conduct a geotechnical/geological study. This is the initial step in qualifying for federal emergency funds that may allow the county to assess slide damage and/or alternate routes. The slide on the Cape Meares Loop Road became more noticeable following the November 2012 storm event when the county observed accelerated movement of an active landslide. Survey data indicated that portions of the road moved up to nine feet between 2007 and 2013, although most of the movement has occurred since November 2012. The most recent survey data indicates more steady slow movement

Earl Ervin Finley Jr.

Dr. Robert Shelley, 84, passed away peacefully on Friday March 29, 2013, surrounded by family at his home in Tillamook, after a brief battle with pancreatic cancer. Bob DR. ROBERT was born on SHELLEY Feb. 25, 1929 to Lester and Ella Shelley in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada and was the second oldest of five children. Bob was predeceased by his first wife, Dorothy in 1984 after 30 years of marriage, and by his second wife, Sheila in 2011 after 25 years of marriage. Bob is survived by his children, John (Andrea Johnstone) of Toronto; Brett (Shelley) of Amherstburg; Dawn Elliott of Woodstock; Drew (Brenda) of Stratford; stepchildren, Mitch (Cindy) Parker of Tillamook; Melinda Parker (Eric Angstadt) of San Francisco; Melissa Robinson of Los Angeles; 22 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren; siblings, Elaine Iglin of Meaford, Ontario; John (Cindy) of La Jolla; Doris Maxwell of Ottawa and David of Oakville; and many other loving nieces, nephews and relatives. Bob earned his medical degree at the University of Western Ontario while enlisted in the Royal Officers Training Programme with the Royal Canadian Air Force. After graduation, he was stationed at Rockcliffe Air Base in Ottawa where he attained the rank of squadron leader and served as Command Medical Officer Air Material Command. He moved to Amherstburg in 1960 where he worked as a general practitioner for more than 30 years, including 20 years as Coroner. He delivered many babies in Amherstburg and patients will remember him as one of the last doctors to continue making house calls. Bob was active in the Amherstburg community and served as Chairman of the Board of the local community centre, and also on the boards of the House of Shalom Teen and Youth Social Centre and the Handicap Residential Housing Committee. Bob retired in 1989 and sailed the Caribbean for two years with wife Sheila in their sloop Skylark, and then after returning to Windsor for a 3year locum, moved to Tillamook where he and Sheila built their dream home in the coastal mountains. During his 15 years in Tillamook, Bob was active in the Master Gardeners and also served as president of the local bridge chapter. He will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by the many friends he made here. He concluded his final days with this quote… "It's been a great ride, thanks for all the fun and fond memories!" Celebrations of Bob’s life will be held in Tillamook and in Ontario, Canada. Please send condolences, memories or requests for further information regarding memorials to

even though it has been a relatively dry winter. Cape Meares Loop Road is part of the Three Capes Scenic Loop that connects Cape Meares State Park, Cape Lookout State Park and Cape Kiwanda State Park. Bayocean Road often has landslides in the area from Memaloose Boat ramp to the Bayocean Dike Road. The county continues to monitor the landslide movement and is working with emergency responders, residents and others on available options for emergency response. The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is also monitoring an area of cracked pavement just south of the Happy Camp slide on OR Hwy 131 that was repaired in 2011. Many of Oregon’s costal routes including OR 131 have a long history of slide movement because of the steep hillsides, types of soils and heavy

precipitation. The crack on OR 131 has been slow moving and noticeable for at least the past 10 years. ODOT geologists, engineers and maintenance crews will continue to monitor Hwy 131 and other slide prone areas, and pave and patch when necessary, according to Lou Torres, an ODOT public information officer. Residents are reminded that they should prepare their Emergency kits, and check the NOAA website for more information, Both the county and ODOT understand the importance of these coastal highways and will continue to monitor these areas on a regular basis. Maintaining safety for the travelling public is a top priority based on available resources. For more information, please call your county Road Department at 503-8423419.

Lady Cats open league play swinging Nestucca’s sweet swinging offense leads them to three Northwest League wins BY JOSIAH DARR

Headlight Herald Sports

The month of April was more than just another turning of the calendar for the Nestucca Bobcats softball team. It was the start of their Northwest League season. For the Bobcats, getting the season off to a good start is critical. Every win will be big in a tough league that came down to tiebreakers last season. With rain-outs plaguing the Bobcats schedule, the Lady Cats had four games in three days to start the month. A series against a very good Vernonia team and one against the Neah-KahNie Pirates. Nestucca vs Vernonia The first league game on April Fool's day was no joke for the Bobcats. They needed a big league win in the worst way to start off right, but Vernonia had no intention of laying down on the job. The Lady Loggers jumped out to a quick two runs in the first inning and were poised to score more, but Lacy Boisa played some heads up defense and managed to turn a double play to extinguish the Logger rally. “Their first three batters got on base, so the double play was huge,” said Bobcat head coach Jeff Schiewe. “We've actually turned a few this year. It's pretty cool.” The Loggers added two more in the third, but the Bobcats finally came to life in the bottom of the third with a big six-run inning. “We strung a lot of hit and walks together,” Schiewe said about the offensive burst. Abby Bryson, Jessica Ackerman, Lacy Boisa and Monica Chatelain all got on base in the inning to keep the runners moving. Ackerman actually


The bases paths looked like a merry go round with the Bobcat offense hitting on all cyliders in four games over the course of three days against Vernonia and Neeah-Kah-Nie. got two hits in the inning herself. The Bobcats got three more runs in the bottom of the fourth to extend their lead to 9-4. Even though the Loggers got two in the fifth, the Bobcats were home free. Nestucca took the league opener, 96. Nestucca @ Neah-Kah-Nie After earning their first league win only 24 hours before, the Cats traveled to Rockaway Beach to take on the Pirates. The Pirates have had a far better season to this point then they had last year, but their still a developing team, where as the Bobcats are much more established. It didn't take the Cats long to flex their muscles as they sent Pirate pitcher Taylin McKinney flying all over the yard. “We just hit well,” Schiewe said.

“That's just about all there is to say. The girls flat out crushed the ball.” While Jasmine Boisa launched one early in the game and Sunny McCall got on base three out of four at bats, it was Emily Menefee who had the most monstrous game. Besides hitting in Boisa after her triple in the first, Menefee absolutely smoked a ball with the bases loaded for a grand slam on her next at bat and just like that, Menefee had 5 RBI's. Kycie Richwine was on the hill for Nestucca when they were on defense and she did a great job keeping the Pirates under control. While Jasmine Boisa has been the Bobcats best pitcher the last few seasons, Richwine has gotten better every season and has been extremely sharp this season. “I really have two go-to pitchers on the roster,” Schiewe said. “I have total confidence in Kycie just like I do in

Jasmine.” The Pirates couldn't muster the offense needed to keep up with the Bobcats and Nestucca got the win in five innings, 16-2. Nestucca @ Vernonia Game one After getting through the Loggers only two days before, the Pirates went to Vernonia to try to keep their two game league winning streak going, but it wasn't to be. The Pirates got two runs in the first, which were the only two runs of the game until the fifth. Finally the Bobcats broke out and lit up the scoreboard for five run in the top of the sixth with the help of a pair of triples in the inning.

CORVALLIS, Ore. – The mystery of how salmon navigate across thousands of miles of open ocean to locate their river of origin before journeying upstream to spawn has intrigued biologists for decades, and now a new study may offer a clue to the fishes’ homing strategy. In the study, scientists examined 56 years of fisheries data documenting the return of sockeye salmon to the Fraser River in British Columbia – and the route they chose around Vancouver Island showed a correlation with changes in the intensity of the geomagnetic field. Results of the study, which was supported by Oregon Sea Grant and the National Science Foundation, were published this week in the journal Current Biology. “What we think happens is that when salmon leave the river system as juveniles and enter the ocean, they imprint the magnetic field – logging it in as a waypoint,” said Nathan Putman, a post-doctoral researcher at Oregon State University and lead author on the study. “It serves as a proxy for geographic location when they return as adults. It gets them close to their river system and then other, finer cues may take over.” Earth has a predictable, consistent geomagnetic field that weakens as you move from the poles toward the equator. The magnetic North Pole has an intensity gradient of roughly 58 microtesla, while the equator is about 24 microtesla. Salmon originating from Oregon that have spent two to four years in the northern Pacific Ocean off Canada or Alaska would return as adults, the scientists speculate, journeying southward off the coast until they reached a magnetic field intensity similar to that of their youth.

Tillamook track picks up where they left off at Tillamook Invitational BY JOSIAH DARR

Headlight Herald Sports

The Tillamook track team finally got their season underway on April 6 with the annual Tillamook Invitational meet and without missing a beat, the Cheesemakers got right back into action and back to the top of the podium. Besides the Tillamook athletes, Banks, Astoria, Corbett, Nestucca, Vernonia and Jewell were in attendance, adding some very talented athletes to the meet. But, the talent level didn't slow down Tillamook's boys team one bit. If anything it got the Cheesemen fired up and ready to compete even harder. When the meet was over, Tillamook's boys dominated, at least on the track. Tillamook's young men won eight of the ten running events in the day including the 4x100 relay; the 4x400 relay; Wesley Stirk winning the 100m, Nate McRae winning the high hurdles; Hector Rojo winning the 1500m, Myron Moore winning the 200m, Markus Pullen winning the 400m and Aaron Josi winning the 3000m. The only running events Tillamook didn't win were the 300m hurdles and


the 800m. With all the great performances from the Mook boys, Tillamook easily won the boys’ meet with a total of 177 points. “It's been a few years since we've won our own invitational. It was nice,” said Tillamook head coach Mark Dean. “It's also nice to see some of our younger kids stepping out and making themselves known.” A few of those younger Cheesemakers are guys like Andrew Jenck who ran an excellent 3000m and Coley Trost who placed in the pole vault, 300m hurdles and the high jump. “Those kind of efforts and seeing them become factors in a meet really pleases me as a coach,” Dean said about Jenck and Trost. While it is great to have younger kids developing because it leads to a bright future, Tillamook isn’t looking to be successful down the road; they have the tool to win right now. Tillamook's 4x400 relay team made up of Philippe Josi, Myron Moore, Paulo Valez and Markus Pullen have been racing together since last year and their familiarity has immediately made them a huge treat to the rest of the state this season.


See SALMON, Page A9

They put together a time of 3:35 in their first meet of the season. Not only was that a time good enough to win them the meet, but it was also the sixth fasted time recorded this season for 4A, according to And, according to senior Markus Pullen, it's only a warm up time. “That time is only two seconds slower than how we ended last season and this was our first meet,” Pullen said. “I know we'll get better and faster because we're all a lot stronger than we were last year.” On the girls side of the meet, Tillamook's team is small consisting of only 22 girls. Many of which are new to track. But, Tillamook does have a few trusty and consistent girls who started this season off right where they were supposed to be - towards the top. Sabrina Pullman won the 3000m for Tillamook while her fellow Tillamook distance runner Kestrel Bailey won the 1500m.

Splash and Dash raises $2,800 for Community Fitness Trail Headlight Herald Sports

The Port of Tillamook Bay was the sight of this year's first ever Splash and Dash 5K race on April 6. “I thought it was great for out first year,� said founder Jamie Dixon. “I was hoping to have about 100 people and we ended up with 88 or so. It was close enough for me.� The run was a fundraiser for the new Community Fitness Trail paved around Tillamook Junior High, which will cost approximately $50,000, but only about $7,000 to get a gravel track laid. “We raised about $2,800 which was a great start to get-

ting the gravel track in,� Dixon said. “I feel like that will help a lot towards getting the gravel track in before next school year, which is my goal.� The top make runners who made it through the muddy course were: Daniel McGee 23:43; Carter Kunert 24:52; Sklyer Clowers 25:50; Ben Polman 26:05; RJ Wynia 26:22; Jennifer Richards 27:22; Dave Kunert 28:27; Gabe Lachmier 28:29; JP Richards 28:50; Nick Peterson 29:04; Angie Kunert 29:26. Trophies were given out to the top male and female runners along with trophies for the best three ponchos worn while

SWINGING: “Just like when we played them two nights before, the bats suddenly came alive,� Schiewe said. “I don't know what makes 'em do it, but the girls have the ability to suddenly start stringing hits together.� The Bobcats had the 5-2 lead going into the seventh, but the Logger bats couldn't be stopped. “They are a really good hitting team,� Schiewe said. “They really smoked a few balls in the three games we played them.� The Loggers ran four more runs across the plate in the seventh to take a 6-5 lead and with the game tying run only 60 feet away at third base on their half of the inning, the Bobcats were retired and lost the game by one.


running. Those winners were Quintin Crossley, Josh Richards and Chrissy Dixon. “I want to make sure we say thank you to our local sponsors, Dr. Long dentistry, Diamond Art jewelers, Road I.D., Port of Tillamook Bay, Tillamook Education Foundation, TLC, Tillamook Vision Center, Sand Creek Dental, Tillamook School of Dance, Averill Landscaping Materials, Alpine Acres, Body and Sole, Joe and Marie Wand, Oregon Coast Dance Center, Rosenberg Builder Supply and all the runners and volunteers on race day for making this a great event,� Dixon said.

with a five run lead in the last inning before as a coach,� Schiewe said with a laugh. “Those girls could hit!� The Loggers weren’t able to get what they needed to take the lead and the Bobcats held on for a 16-11 win giving the Bobcats the series. “I felt good about winning the series,� Schiewe said. “Vernonia beat Gaston once this year and Gaston was last years league champs and didn't lose many girls so it was a good sign for us. “The girls had a long week, but they fought hard and that's what you want as a coach. This is going to be a tough league all year and we're going to have to keep working because it's going to come down to who ends up winning the big ones at the end.�

Tillamook's girls took third place overall and only missed second by a single point. A result that Coach Dean is pleased with. Especially considering what he saw from a few of his younger girls. Making some noise for Tillamook from slightly unexpected places were Chloe Pampush in the 400m and Kim Poblador in the 300m hurdles. Both girls are freshman. While Tillamook did have a fairly well rounded team performance, there was one Cheesemaker who stood out above the rest and may very well prove that's he's one of the best track athletes in the state by the time the season comes to an end. Tillamook's Nate McRae was named The Most Outstanding Male Athlete in the meet. Besides winning the high hurdles, McRae sent a new PR in the high jump, a PR in the high hurdles, took fourth in the long jump and jumped the tenth longers jump

in the triple jump in Tillamook school history. McRae tallied up 34 points for the Cheesemakers alone, making him the highest point gathering athlete in the meet. “It was a great start to the season,� Dean said. “Especially considering all the other teams have had at least one meet and this was out first. “I do want to especially thank the volunteers from the community that came out and helped with the meet. No matter what we needed, you name it, they helped.� Nestucca Bobcats In the highly competitive meet with three teams in bigger divisions, the Nestucca Bobcats came away with three wins of their own. Drace Moeller scored a sophomore class record in the shot put, smashing the 49-foot barrier in the process. Kycie Richwine broke the tape first in the 100 Hurdles and Brett Elder won the discus competition.


The first ever Splash and Dash 5K had 88 participants who made their way around the course on the Port of Tillamook Bay property.

“Even though we lost, it was a really good game,� Schiewe said. “Even the umpire came up to me after the game and said it was a great one to be part of.� Game two After losing their first half of the doubleheader, the Bobcats needed a win in the rubber match to win the series and they didn't bother waiting to see what the Loggers were going to do. The Cats went ahead and took it with runs in almost every inning in the game. It was two in the first, three in the second, and four in the third before the Loggers got their new pitcher out of the game. Nestucca jumped way out, but with the way the Loggers were hitting, no lead felt safe. “I've never felt so nervous

Nestucca Pole Vaulters Austin McKillip, Nate Parks and Ryan Leslie all scored PRs in that event, with McKillip second place. Monica Chatelain ran a gutsy 800, leading the race for the first 600m, but eventually finishing third. Distance runners Courtney Chatelain and Rebecca Whittles both concentrated on the 3000 meters, each scoring a season best and finishing in second and third place respectively. Trisha Hopkins had good day throwing, making the finals in shot and discus, as did Kaelin McKillip, with a PR 80 foot throw in the javelin. "I think we're coming along, the weather has been tough but we have tough kids, so they've been doing a fantastic job,� said Bobcat head coach John Elder. “It was really nice to see Drace's hard work pay off with a new PR and Sophomore record too.�

“That should get them to within 50 to 100 kilometers of their own river system and then olfactory cues or some other sense kicks on,� said Putman, who conducts research in OSU’s Department of Fisheries and Wildlife. Vancouver Island provides a natural laboratory for the study of salmon, the researchers point out. Salmon returning to the Fraser River must detour around the massive island to reach the mouth of the river, choosing a southern or northern route. In their study, the scientists found that the “drift� of the geomagnetic field correlated with which route the salmon chose. When the normal intensity level for the Fraser River shifted to the north, the sockeye were more likely to choose a northern route for their return. When the field shifted slightly south, they chose a southern route. This “field drift� accounted for about 16 percent of the variation in the migration route, Putman said, while variations in sea surface temperatures accounted for 22 percent. The interactive effect between these two variables accounted for an additional 28 percent of the variation in the migration route. “Salmon are a cold-water fish, and all things being equal, they prefer cold water,� said Putman, who earned his Ph.D. in biology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel

The annual salmon migration is one of the worlds most amazing displays of endurance and consistency and now we might finally know how they do it.

Hill. “But the fact that they also demonstrate geomagnetic fidelity in choosing a route shows that this could be a major instrument in their biological toolbox to guide their way home.� Putman said that his previous studies of the Columbia River have shown that the magnetic intensity shifts less than 30 kilometers in either direction over a period of three years, which is about the length of time many salmon spend in the ocean. “Salmon have to get it right because they only have one chance to make it back to their

home river,� Putman said, “so it makes sense that they may have more than one way to get there. The magnetic field is amazingly consistent, so that is a strategy that can withstand the test of time. But they may also use the sun as a compass, track waves breaking on the beach through infrasound, and use smell.� Putman and OSU fisheries biologist David Noakes plan to follow through with experiments on varying the magnetic field for salmon in a laboratory setting, using the Oregon Hatchery Research Center in Oregon’s Alsea River basin.

Bobcat baseball has a solid week going 2-1 Page A10 - Tillamook, Ore., Wednesday, April 10, 2013 - Headlight Herald

Headlight Herald Sports

On April 1, the boys from Nestucca traveled to Vernonia to play a very good Loggers team in a doubleheader that opened the Northwest League season. The Bobcats were able to split the games, losing the first and winning the second. A few days later, the Cats stayed on the road in league, but this time they headed to Neah-Kah-Nie where they beat the Pirates. Nestucca @ Vernonia Game 1 The Bobcats put Jacob Menefee on the hill to take on the Loggers and he did an excellent job for the Cats. “Jacob Menefee pitched a great game for me, only giving up four runs,� Sisco said. “We had a few mistakes mixed in there also, so I thought Jacob

did an excellent job.� Despite Menefee's good performance, the Bobcat bats didn't do what they needed to do. “We did not do a great job in two strike counts of making contact and putting the ball in play,� Sisco said. “It was another case of missed opportunities, with several runners left stranded on base.� The Loggers didn't do much with the bats, but neither did the Bobcats and Vernonia got the win, 4-2. Game two For whatever reason, the Bobcat bats that were hibernating in the first game came to life in the second half of the doubleheader. “ The bats lit up in the first inning when we put up five runs early,� Sisco said. Cody Chance threw most

of the game for Nestucca, doing a great job keeping hitters off balance and pitching a smart game. Max Kirkendall came in to close it out and stayed focused in some tough spots as well. Austin Woods broke out and had a great game at the plate,� Sisco said. “He was 3-4 and absolutely stung the ball.� The Bobcats get everything they neeede from their pitching staff and the offense to get a 10-6 win. Nestucca @ NKN The Bobcats were able to keep the momentum rolling when they went to Rockaway Beach. The got a great completel game pitching from junior Brian Anderson and when it was over, the Pirates made too many mistakes and the Bobcats were too strong. Nestucca won, 9-0.

Mook golfers having fun at Alderbrook

On April 2, Tillamook golf invited the Cowapa League to come participate in the 2013 Tillamook Invitational Scramble. Scappoose and Banks pairs tied for first place, shooting a 71 with Tillamook's Tyler Udenby and Taylor Cham taking third, shooting a 72. David Waud and Jerrad McKiben shot a 74 and the team of Brandon Roehl and Brandon Delanoy shot an 84. Tillamook did win the team score with a 146 team score while Scappoose was second with a 149 and Banks taking third, shooting a 150. Alderbrook was a great host,� said Tillamook head coach Wil Duncan. “We also want to thank the Tillamook Cheese Factory for donating all of the prizes. The golfers loved the idea of cheese for prizes.�

You are what you eat BY SAYDE MOSER


he age-old saying that less is more rings true for a lot of issues in life, and organic farming is no different – especially recently, as the modes and methods behind using genetically modified seeds have hit the media spot light. Genetically altered organisms is certainly not a new topic, but thanks to at least eight bills that state legislators in Oregon are considering that would require foods with genetically altered ingredients to be labeled, the issues surrounding it are resurfacing. Heidi Daggett and her husband, Travis switched over to using non-GM seeds last year on their farm on the Nestucca River near Beaver. “There’s totally a ton of dangers in GM seeds,” said Heidi Daggett. Genetically modified seeds can mean a variety of things, Daggett said. It could be as simple as inserting the genes of a jellyfish into a plant or as serious as opening up a seed and injecting pesticides directly into it. To accomplish this, a virus or bacteria is used to open the seed up, which is then injected with the pesticide or other gene. Antibiotics are then used to help heal the seed back up. The profit being that crops can then be sprayed with pesticides without killing or harming them. But Daggett said it’s been found that when humans eat these crops – whether directly or indirectly (think drinking the milk of a cow who was feed GM corn) – these pesticides are transferred to their bodies. “To me, that’s so scary,” she said, adding that the most commonly altered seeds are corn, soy and cotton. The unfortunate part, Daggett said, is these seeds are much easier and cheaper to come by. “It’s hard to find anywhere that you can buy non-GM seeds,” she said. Daggett has to turn to the Internet because she can’t find anywhere local to get them – although she does stay within Oregon. And organic doesn’t necessarily mean non-GM, she said. “Some people think it does, but I’m just not convinced,” she said. Organic, she explained, means it hasn’t been sprayed with pesticides, but doesn’t specify whether the seeds themselves have already been injected with pesticides or not. Daggett said genetically modified seeds started getting really popular in the mid-90s, but she thinks people are starting to understand the issues surrounding them a little more. “To me, I can see it,” she said. “When I look at the side effects of these seeds in the animals we’re feeding them too, and then I look at the people and all of our health issues, it


Heidi Daggett refrains from using genetically modified seeds on her farm, even when it comes to feeding her cow, Emma and other farm animals.

just makes sense.” She explained, however, that she doesn’t have any beef with the farmers already using these seeds. “There’s no monetary gain to switch to non-GM so I can’t blame them,” she said. “It’s not them I’m upset with.” “Money is a big deal to anyone, no matter how much of it you make,” added her husband. Daggett explained that because of large seed manufacturers that produce GM seeds, it limits her choices to be able to find non-GM seeds – not to mention when farmers around her are planting with GM seeds, it can cause cross-contamination in her own crops. “If we want to be able to save our seed, then we have to be darn sure GM seeds don’t get in there,” she said. Daggett said any farms within a one-mile radius of her could potentially cause cross-contamination. “For me, I know what my neighbor farmers are growing – I have to,” she

said. Daggett explained cross contamination occurs because crops like corn are wind pollinated. Because corn would flower at the same time, a farmer who was planting GM corn within a mile of her farm could easily affect her own crop. “If that were to happen, I would have to dispose of it,” she said. “Because I don’t want to breed it or eat it.” Daggett uses heirloom seeds, which can be documented back to the 1800s and said she doesn’t want them contaminated. “I don’t intrude on them with what I’m growing, so I don’t like that (what they’re growing) affects my crops,” she said. Daggett also said that insects feeding on GM plants and then popping over to her farm can create problems - not just for her but for birds, which she said are decreasing in population because of GM effects. But fortunately for Daggett, she said none of her neighbors are grow-

ing GM crops and so she has less to worry about than other farms. The other good news is Daggett has identified somewhat of a solution, and it simply involves more people becoming aware and changing their shopping habits. “It would only take five percent of Americans to make the change to buying products that aren’t modified in away way and then those big businesses are going to see where the money is going and rethink their business models,” she said. “People will wake up but it starts with how we spend out money.” And she believes the switch is happening – both in farmers and consumers. “It’s an easy switch to make,” she said. “You don’t have to do it all at once but you can do it in little pieces.” Daggett said the switch is worth it on so many levels, including the soil. “The bacteria used to break into the seed can still be found in the soil

after the crop is gone,” she said. “So that makes me wonder if we’re doing another horrible thing and damaging our soil beyond repair by using these modified seeds.” But even more importantly, Daggett said people should be able to know what they’re eating. “It’s wrong to just sneak this stuff in our food,” she said. “Because I do believe you are what you eat.” If the bills pass, it would make Oregon the first state in the nation to require foods with genetically modified components to be labeled. The bills would also place restrictions on planting GM crops and require manufacturers of GM seeds to be held liable for any damages done to neighboring, non-GM farms. Twelve other states are considering similar bills – although California voters just rejected a similar measure. These bills, if passed, would be the first time a food is labeled based on the seeds used to produce it.

Local chapter FT of P.E.O. holds first charity auction Approximately 100 people attended the Philanthropic Educational Organization’s Tillamook chapter FT’s first charity auction held at the Port of Tillamook on Saturday, March 16. All proceeds will be allocated to the educational advancement of young women. P.E.O. is a philanthropic educational organization of women to assist women in furthering their education. They take pride in providing educational opportunities to women in our community through various types of assistance including scholarships, grants, awards and loans. The Tillamook Chapter, established in June 1999 is part of nearly 6,000 chapters located throughout the U.S. and Canada. We include almost a quarter of a million members. The Tillamook chapter, which includes communities as far north as Manzanita and south to Neskowin, has provided educational assistance to many women during the past 14 years. The most recent recipient is Camra Schild. After completing her bachelor’s degree in Education and Learning, Cami worked as a Family Resource Coordinator for a nearby school district and subsequently as a JOBS coordinator

for the Department of Human Services. It was at this point that she recognized her passion for helping people in need and her desire to attain the knowledge and skills needed to be an effective counselor. Subsequently, she has been in the master’s program while financing her education through an individual development account obtained through the Network for Oregon Affordable Housing and using her personal savings. With four terms left until completion, she was in need of additional assistance. Her commendable level of dedication and financial responsibility in pursuit of this advanced degree made her a perfect candidate for our continuing education program grant which she was awarded in December 2012. P.E.O. is a source of encouragement and support for women, both for members and for women who benefit from their assistance in attaining their educational advancement. To this end, much of what they do is fund raise. In addition to their first public auction, they also hold a chapter members’ Founder’s Day and Christmas auction. On an ongoing basis, members also donate stuffed animals to the Tillamook Police Department as a source

The entire student body, staff and volunteers will work with project site partners on April 19 during a district-wide day of service. Participation includes the NKN Middle School’s entire student body of approximately 170 students as well as many volunteers and community partners working together at 22 project sites throughout the school district. The opportunity to give to and be a part of a larger community is invaluable for this age group. Middle school is a challenging time when students begin making choices that have long term effects on their lives. By experiencing the intrinsic rewards of helping others and making face to face connections with people in their community, students are more likely to make positive behavior choices and better understand their role as community members. Student representatives have worked with the planning committee and high school Leos will join in the event. This event will meet multiple objectives. • The Day of Service will

Why a Road Tax

Stupidity is an elected official’s dream to road-tax one resident a higher fee than his neighbor while other citizens that drive, pay nothing. It’s like having 50% of the highest paid county employees paying all of the road repair costs, while the rest of the people enjoy a free ride. A person’s income, net worth or home value has nothing to do with road repair. Let the millions upon millions of Tillamook State Forest income expense road repair. Change our government and redistribute forest income. Forest income for road repair on the ballot is a no-brainer and it beats the hell out of advising our grandchildren not to invest in real estate in Tillamook County. Richard Stanfill

y house has been intensely jealous of Saint Joseph’s Catholic church, a neighbor to the east, for its pristine roof, dapper siding, fresh paint job, and frequent power washings for as long as I can remember. Until I hired Ty Merritt to mow my lawn a year ago, my grass was even covetous of the church’s Saturday mowings. This spring it’s something new; the landmark Parkway Drive church has yellow tape flapping in the breeze around plywood forms being readied for a fancy new poured cement walkway in front of the entrance. Maybe this time I’ll have the courage to carve my initials in the concrete before it dries; probably not. I appreciate Joani Moore submitting the following thank you from the Friends of South Tillamook County Library Club for Fencepost readers: “Thanks to everyone who helped to make our sale successful again this year by donating books, plants and baked goods and coming to shop. The lap quilt that was donated by The Tuesday Stitchers for our raffle was won by Mike Dill (husband of our former librarian, Carolyn.)

e have been “Empty Nesters” for 13 years… Upstairs, hidden away, is the “kids” storage. Trunks, suitcases and photo albums full of high school and college memorabilia have claimed their own space. Walking through the rest of the house, I am reminded of American author and spiritual teacher, Vernon Howard’s words. “You have succeeded in life when all you really want, is only what you really need.” Spring cleaning is a time to simplify, simplify, simplify. Room by room I purge, filling boxes eliminating non-essential, unneeded, unwanted, unemotional items from our life. New and used items, that will be donated for charity at the Netarts Community Club’s Rummage Sale on April 25, 26, and 27. The Tillamook Anglers will be holding the 24th annual Fin Clipping on Saturday, April 13, at the Whiskey Creek Fish Hatchery. No experience is necessary - on the job training will be provided.

Organized by Wave Steppers Tillamook Bay, the event will be held on the Dance Floor at Garibaldi City Hall. 7-9:30 p.m., with caller Mark Wheeler and line dance instructor Gwen Kiel. (I’ll probably be calling a few “tips” myself. I did last time.) Square dancing, you’ve probably heard, is tremendous, low-impact aerobic exercise; good brain exercise, too. Did I mention the refreshments? There will be refreshments. All for five bucks a head. For those interested in taking (or re-taking) square dancing up as a recreational activity, the Wave Steppers are also offering classes;

TBCC’s South County campus, in the southeast corner of Nestucca High School grounds in Cloverdale, will host the 11:30 event on Friday, April 19. A $12 lunch will be catered by the TBCC Culinary Arts program. The program will be a slide presentation by Debbie Lincoln, Master Gardner. Non-members are welcomed but reservations are necessary and may be obtained by calling Judie Rubert at 541-760-2389. In honor of upcoming Earth Day, the Neskowin-NestuccaSandlake Watersheds Council is hosting a Nestucca Bay Clean-up from 8:30 a.m. to noon next Saturday, April 20. Volunteers, dressed for the weather and wearing boots, will meet at the boat ramp north of Bob Straub State Park in Pacific City for the work party. Invite your friends and neighbors along; boaters are encouraged to participate. Gloves and garbage bags, along with hot coffee, tasty local refreshments will be provided along with a chance to meet other enthusiastic participants. Later that same morning, at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 20, the Pacific City Woods CPAC will meet at the Central Building. Liane Welch and Jon Carnahan will be presenting information regarding the proposed road bond. It’s not too late to set an appointment for the 3-6 year olds in your life for more than $1,000 worth of health and learning screenings happening April 24-6 at Tillamook County Fair-

grounds. Behavioral development, dental status, hearing, motor skills, speech, and vision, among other things, will be tested free for any Tillamook County preschooler. These mult-imodular exams 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, call 503-815-2292, 503368-2292, or 503-965-2292. Tickets are selling like hotcakes at Nestucca High School for Fiddler on the Roof, their spring musical, running April 247. Tuesday, April 24, the show is a matinee, with lunch traditionally available beforehand for an extra charge. Evening shows happen at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, April 26 and 27 at Nestucca High School, 34660 Parkway Dr., Cloverdale. The Tillamook County Master Gardener Association will be hold its Plant Sale from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Saturday May 4 at the Pavilion at the Tillamook County Fairgrounds.

BBQ lunch. The fin clipping is usually done about 1:30 p.m. The event is under cover, but dress for the weather. Rubber boots are suggested – waterproof aprons and gloves will be provided by the Anglers. 100,000 little spring Chinook need to be clipped so a lot of volunteers are needed! The Netarts/Oceanside Fire District is holding an open house at “your” newly remodeled Netarts Fire Station on Saturday, April 13. The “ribbon cutting” will be at 1 p.m. (weather dependent) in front of the new main entrance and the event will last until 3 p.m. Netarts Station #61 has been completely seismically upgraded with new office space, individualized upstairs storage space, and a renovated community hall. Coffee, cake and tours of the station will be provided by Netarts/Oceanside Firefighters. Join your neighbors and let’s celebrate the long-awaited bright newcaddition to the community! Cape Meares Loop between the Lighthouse and Bay Ocean Road is closed with no anticipation of repairing the road due to the massive slide area on the mountain. The “new cracks” on Hwy 131 above Happy Camp are being monitored closely by both ODOT and the Tillamook County Road Deptarment. In the case of another landside, like we experienced two years ago, every effort will be made by the county to open and maintain Cape Meares Loop on a temporary basis while repairs are made on Hwy. 131. Under that scenario, Oceanside Station #62 will be manned seven days a week. Securing emergency response to Oceanside would be a top priority for the Netarts/Oceanside Fire District and the county. Roland Barkholtz is a man

who has spent years dedicated to “Boater Safety Programs.” He is exploring the possibility of starting a “Kids Don’t Float – Give Them Something That Does” Life Jacket Loaner Station (LJLS), with the help of citizens of Netarts and anyone else who may want to participate. The premise is that a “Loaner Station” would be built by volunteers next to the Netarts Boat Basin. LJLSs can be viewed at the docks in Garibaldi, Wheeler and Nehalem State Park. There is no charge for their use – just borrow and return. After approvals, logistics and volunteers are determined, 25 life jackets in various sizes will be needed (preferably new) for the Netarts Life Jacket Loaner Station. When the program is in place, used life jackets will be acceptable, if they are clean and in good condition. Donated materials would be appreciated. It should be noted that at each of the present locations have approx. 60 percent children’s life jackets and 40 percent adult. According to Fire Chief Tim Carpenter, “Since I have been associated with the Fire Department - 25 people have died either not wearing life jackets or not boating responsibly.” Please, those interested should contact Roland at Jeff Ackerson called me from Tucson. His cousin had visited his aunt at Emeritus at Tucson Assisted Living and met my sister, Traci. Jeff and Darlene are Arizona snowbirds, and live on Tillamook River Road - in the house my Uncle Carl (Sonny) and Aunt Mary lived in while we were growing up as kids. It’s a small world…

those are held on the fourth Wednesday of the month, 6:30 - 8 p.m. at the Tillamook Elks Lodge at Third and Ivy in downtown Tillamook. The instructor is Jim Hattrick from Vancouver. For more information on either one, contact club president Bob Allen (503-322-3819) or Bob Kratz (503-842-4321), or me (503-812-4050). The Garibaldi Food Pantry will be open Friday, April 12, 10 a.m. till noon at the God’s Lighthouse church, on Eighth and Garibaldi Avenue. (US 101). If you have canned or other non-perishable food to donate, please bring it by the Garibaldi post office or Tami’s Barber Shop (Fourth and Garibaldi Avenue.) during working hours. The April 12 one-on-one computer classes at the Garibaldi Library are full; so are the next ones, scheduled for May. There has been a lot of demand for these classes in Garibaldi and Librarian Norma has started a waiting list; if you’d like to be on it – either in case there should be a vacancy or to get in one of the next ones – contact Norma at the Library (503-322-2100). The seismic retrofit of the city

hall/fire hall building has resulted in a construction dumpster being positioned in front of the lower (Sixth Street) library entrance, and it’s not known how long the container will be there. It is not blocking the library entrance, I was told – you can still get in the door. Alternatively, you can use the upper (handicapped) entrance, off Acacia, where the book drop is located. (The seismic retrofitting is leaving us all feeling a little handicapped, anyway.) The Garibaldi Library is still open noon-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10-3 on Saturdays.

learned from superstorm Sandy. The fair was from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m., at the Nehalem Bay Fire Station on Highway 101 North. There was a spinning wheel to get a prize of an M.R.E. which stands for Meals Ready to Eat, they handed out balloons, temporary tattoos along with a showing of the fire trucks were offered to the kids. They also had four different presentations which were all very informative; Bill Harshbarger led the CERT team to make sure off-site parking was well coordinated. Cheryl VanDyke and Peggy Campbell welcomed everyone at the information desk. Jeannette Edley representing the Tillamook Health Department was available to give tetanus shots if you needed an update on yours. The Disaster Fair had an estimated 100 to 150 people attend. They have collected $504.50 so far. The Emergency Volunteer Board will be having their meeting on April 22 at 3 p.m. at the Pine Grove Community Center in Manzanita. The SOLVE spring beach cleanup had over 3,744 volunteers along the Oregon coastline to clean up trash washed ashore by winter storms. Volunteers removed an estimated 60,483 total pounds of trash from our beaches including 1,565 pounds of material for recycle and reuse, as well as 55 tires.

In June of 2012, Barbara and Vernon Swanson finished building a new beach house for their families and friends. The beach house was named Ravenswood. This week, (April 25, 2013), Ravenswood got an accessory to go along with its quaint design. A woodshed was built by Barbara's son-in-law, Jon White, granddaughter, Mahima, and grandson Shuman. The woodshed was completed within a few days of backwrenching work. It contains a large door, two red-painted windows, and a welcoming look to it. The woodshed was admired by passing strangers and helpful neighbors as it was brought to life. Barbara stated, "I don't just like it - I love it!" We enjoyed Easter Sunday dinner at Mark and Elaine Bennett's house. Eric, Brooke and Sydney were able to join us, but Jeff was unable to come as his two sons had pink eye. Now where did that get started? I don't remember our kids ever having pink eye, but I have heard it is painful,with burning and itching. And it is very contagious. Easter Sunrise Services and the kids’ Easter egg hunts had a good day for their activities. Seems it always rains on Easter for the Easter egg hunts.




ith the egg hunts behind us, we can now look towards summer; the weather was so beautiful for the Easter festivities in Manzanita. The Easter Bunny was there handing out chocolate kisses and ready for a picture if wanted. I believe this was the largest amount of Easter Bonnet participants so far: there were so many adorable bonnets and you could see the hard work the children put into them. The hunt was so exciting seeing the children waiting in anticipation, then when Mr. Dillon gave the countdown then said, “go!” they were off and running. Some of the comments from the parents were comical: "They never clean their rooms that fast" and "It's over already?" I thought, well, they are kids and the eggs are filled with candy. This year the Easter Bunny had a friend going around with him, the Disaster Dog; he was handing out flyers letting everyone know about the Emergency Volunteer Corps presenting the Disaster Fair. The Emergency Volunteer Corp presented the Disaster Preparedness Expo lessons

"Spring has sprung the grass has ris', I wonder where the bourdies is. The bourdies are on the wing but that's absourd, because the wing is on the bourd."


his little ditty is in memory of my boss and friend Bob Ciaffoni. It wasn't really spring 'til he recited it. It is truly springtime, and on Saturday, April 20, it will be the "Solve it" Earth Day. This event will be 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Thousands of volunteers throughout Oregon will work hard to improve our environment. Some of the volunteers will pull invasive weeds, plant trees, and pick up trash in our parks, waterways and neighborhoods. On this day the NKN middle school will be continuing their annual "Day of Service." April 19 each student will spend 3-3 1/2 hours, accompanied by staff, doing community service from Manzanita to Bay City. In our glorious little community, the sites include our city hall, the fire department, Seaview Lake, the Lions Club, the caboose and Twin Rocks Friends Camp. The students will then return to the school for a BBQ. (The hot dogs/burgers are donated by our fabulous Lions) Now, if you want to support this effort, the middle school will accept donations. Or perhaps you'd like to volunteer? Just contact the school or get in touch with community groups involved such as the

am sure all of us celebrated the beautiful weather over spring break. I was fortunate enough to have my grandson Cole with me for these last two weeks and even though I suffered a severe head cold the first few days we were still able to enjoy the sunshine. My brother David from Portland joined us for Easter weekend which we celebrated with breakfast at the Bay City United Methodist Church and a beautiful Easter service by Pastor David Hurd. Cole and I colored eggs and he had an egg hunt after church. Jim was here the first part of spring break and we enjoyed going to the Tillamook Historical Museum and the Air Museum. It is the first time I had been to the Tillamook Museum since they remodeled and it is very lovely inside and there was so much to see. Even though I had been to the Air Museum frequent times there was still many things there I hadn’t discovered on my prior trips there. Next on our agenda will probably be a steam engine train ride and the Garibaldi Maritime Museum. I have been here going on 10 yrs and haven’t experienced either of those yet. Don’t forget the BCUMC Rummage and Bake Sale starting tomorrow, Thursday Apr.11 at city hall. I received an email from Wendy Schenk recently and she would like information on our recycling here in Bay City and in the county. I am still busy investigating this so be sure and watch for it in my next column. I am probably the world’s worst recycler so this may well turn out to be a learning experience for me too. Jim has commented about the recycling program in Portland and how well it works so maybe he can encourage me about being more mindful of what goes into our landfills and prove yet that you can teach an old dog new tricks. John Sollman passed this bit of information on to me: County Veterans’ Service Officer Bill Hatton is seeking volunteers to drive the

Lions or the fire department. Don't forget to schedule an appointment at the library to get free tutorial lessons on your computer, tablet, or reading device. It can't hurt to learn a bit more about how it works. I know, I'm still learning. The library's number is 503-355-2665. Spring break we went up to Port Townsend and Whidbey Island with Amber and our friends, Linda and Russ. The weather was cold and crisp, but the sun was out most of the time. What a wonderful time we had. Amber and I overdosed on bubble smoothies and I'm sure I gained five pounds. We caught the ferry a few times and saw dolphins leaping and seals popping their heads up to see what was heading their way. Don't forget to stop by the Frugal Crow to cast your vote for your favorite crow! It's so much fun to see the talent in our town. A visit to the Frugal Crow is a positive experience and I find it such a thrill to pop in. What fun the Easter egg hunt at Phyllis Baker Park was! I couldn't believe all the eggs, both real and plastic! The official Easter bunny was really having fun, and I was dressed as her cousin. And how cute is this? At the hunt, 3-year-old Marcus Johnson (Tom and Lori Martine's grandson) relinquished his binky to me. As a reward, he got a toy train. It had to be tough on him that evening. And as a total surprise to the planners of the event, Papa Murphy's donated coupons and gifts in eggs for the kids. How nice of them! It helped make many children's Easter much brighter. "People will forget what you said; People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel." These are good words to ponder. That's Rockaway Beach "Sugar Coated!"

van to clinics in Hillsboro and the Veterans’ Hospital. You do not have to be a veteran to drive the van. If you’re interested in a very worthy cause, helping our county’s veterans, give the Vets’ Service Office a call at 503-842-4358. Please help if you can. An email from June Ekborg, Neah-Kah-Nie Middle School secretary shared this with us: What: NeahKah-Nie Middle School 2013 Day of Service, When: Friday, April 19. Where: Project sites district-wide. Bay City areas they will be working with are: Kilchis Point and the Bay City Arts Center. When work is done, students will be bussed back to middle school for a BBQ. Who: Entire student body, staff and volunteers will work with project site partners. Cash donations are welcome to support this and future events. This event will meet multiple objectives. The Day of Service will strengthen school-community relations. Community organizations and members will be helped by the efforts of students, staff, and volunteers. Students will establish new community connections and learn through giving back to their communities. The opportunity to give to and be a part of a larger community is invaluable for this age group. Middle school is a challenging time when students begin making choices that have long term effects on their lives. By experiencing the intrinsic rewards of helping others and making face to face connections with people in their community, students are more likely to make positive behavior choices and better understand their role as community members. Participation includes the NKN Middle School’s entire student body of approximately 170 students as well as many volunteers and community partners working together at 22 project sites throughout the school district. The Middle School is seeking financial support (donations are tax deductible) to help cover some of the costs of this ambitious endeavor. Please send donations to: NKN Middle School DAY OF SERVICE, 25111 Hwy. 101 N., Rockaway Beach, OR 97136 Please feel free to call the school at 503-355-2990 if you have any questions.

NOTES FROM THE COAST I’m not the Darth Vader of Birddom


et’s just get this out front right now – I don’t like birds.

I know, I know. Everybody likes birds. I’m a writer and a lot of my friends are scientists and birders, so I want some sympathy here. My friend Dave can ID a bird while sleeping. Dave, not the bird. Once Dave was trying to show me buffalo heads. Buffleheads, he corrected. But I couldn’t see them. Where! I asked, exasperated. I can’t see them. There’s something in the way. The things in the way, Dave said, his temples tightening, are the buffleheads. I have two categories of birds, little brown birds, sometimes yellow, and big birds. Often birders mistake hummingbirds for birds, when actually they’re a species of large winged cockroach. Don’t believe me? Google it. My wife Joani loves birds. We have a spring-loaded feeder that lets one category of birds, her favorites, little brown birds, eat the birdseed and other birds, by which Joani means blue jays, go hungry. What do

you have against blue jays, I ask, in an ongoing and losing bird argument we’ve been having for 15 years? Stellar jays, she says smugly, holding her bird book by Roger Tory Peterson, the Obi-Wan Kanobi of birddom. They’re birds, I say. This is a bird feeder. They deserve birdseed, too, right? SCHUBERT No, they don’t, Joani says. They’re rude. MOORE I’m not sure how I got roped into an argument about bird etiquette behavior? I mean, what I learned in that famous documentary, Jurassic Park, are that birds are direct descendants of velociraptors and would pick your eyes out to put in their martinis if you lay still long enough. During my earlier party days, I did lie still long enough and I woke to see a bird eyeing my eyes. (No, that’s not how I lost my eye, but it could happen.)

I was out for a walk on the mudflats at Sand Lake. A guy was digging sand shrimp for salmon fishing. He had a piece of string tied around one foot. The other end was tied around the neck of a sea gull. He’d dig some shrimp, put them in his bucket, and kick the sea gull. Dig, put shrimp in the bucket, kick the sea gull. A state police officer walked up and asked him what he was doing. I’m protecting my sand shrimp, he said. This gull was stealing them. Did you know these birds are protected, the police officer asked? I am protecting them. I’m using this one as an example so the others will leave my sand shrimp alone so I won’t have to kill them. You are so busted, the police officer said. Once my next-door neighbor Gary was helping me wire an electric fence to keep the raccoons away from the birdseed and I said, Gare, what if the fence electrocutes the very birds we’re trying to feed? Oh, Schubert, Gary said with infinite patience and great wisdom gathered over the years, there are lots of birds. Good point, Gare.


April’s tree: Black Cottonwood So far this year, we have learned to identify three Oregon trees: the red alder, the Oregon ash, and the cascara buckthorn. The tree I found for April is the Black Cottonwood (Populus trichocarpa). This was an important tree to the pioneers as they traveled west along the Oregon Trail. Growing from the Dakotas to the Pacific, they were often the only shade trees the emigrants could find along the trail. Since they prefer a moist environment, healthy cottonwoods were also an indication of water nearby. Cottonwoods are members of the Populus genus, along with aspens and poplar trees. There are about 12 members of this genus that are native to North America, but only three are native to Oregon. Black cottonwoods and quaking aspen are the most common, with Narrowleaf cottonwood found only occasionally. Quaking aspen are found in mountainous areas, generally only in the upper Cascade Mountains and further east. Since they are found rarely in Western Oregon, we will only talk about the Black Cottonwoods which are easier to find. As a group, the Populus are fast growing and sprout easily


from root suckers and cut branch tips, making them easy to propagate. But they can also be problematic in a garden setting because of their ability to spread, even to the point of root growth damaging foundations. I recently read an article about quaking aspens forming groups of cloned trees, growing from the same group of roots. Apparently when one of the trees in a cloned group dies, a “signal” is sent to the rest of the group and root suckers sprout easily to fill in the space. Pretty amazing. Black cottonwoods grow from southeast Alaska to Baja, California, but for much of this vast range, it is found only along rivers and streams. It does not like a hot, dry climate, so the Oregon coast and Willamette Valley are perfect

growing sites. The black cottonwood is considered to be the tallest broadleaf tree in North America and is capable of growth up to 200 feet high, with trunk diameters of six feet. Cottonwood leaves can be of two shapes on the same tree: triangular and spear-like. The higher leaves are more commonly triangular and about three to six inches long, with the smaller, spear-shaped leaves sprouting from the roots or from the base of the tree. Both shapes are smooth or with slightly-rounded teeth. Whatever shape, the leaves are distinctive because of their long petioles and silvery-white undersides of the leaves that almost flash in a wind, making this tree easily identifiable from a distance…as long as the wind is blowing! The leaves also turn a bright yellow in the fall. The catkins are long and shiny and emit a strong fragrance when they open. These buds are coated with a sticky resin, also sweetly scented. This resin is sometimes called balsam. Fruit of the cottonwood probably gave this tree its common name as they are rounded capsules that contain lots of tiny, cottony seeds. Only the female trees produce the fruits

and so oftentimes only males are planted in landscapes or for shade to avoid the fruits shedding “cotton” all over the ground. The bark is smooth and gray on younger trees, but matures to a furrowed and ridged bark as the tree ages. This tree is not usually used as lumber, but before the invention of Styrofoam packing peanuts, it was shredded to use as excelsior for packing. It has always been important in the paper-making process. It was thought that the earliest forest plantings in Oregon were cottonwoods placed along the Willamette River near Oregon City in 1901. These trees were grown as pulp for the local paper mill. All the trees in the Populus genus are easily crossed to produce hybrids whose growing habits exceed that of either parent. For this reason, hybrids are grown in large plantations to produce pulp for paper. There are other, lovely types of Populus - including the stately poplars - that can be grown in landscapes as ornamentals, shade trees, or windbreaks. I must caution growing them too close to buildings, though, because of those creeping roots.
