Rockaway Beach addresses water problem


Rough road ahead

Chances are not many people know what trihalomethanes are - unless of course you live in Rockaway Beach then you might be familiar with the word. And more importantly, you probably know it’s not something you want in your drinking water. Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) are the disinfection byproducts when chlorine is used to treat organics in water. TTHMs are monitored by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and due to the reoccurrence of high TTHM levels in the City of Rockaway’s drinking water last month, the OHA is requiring the city to take some kind of action to reduce the problem. According to Public Works Director Luke Shepard, various attempts have been made over the past several years to bring the city’s water supply into compliance with OHA standards, but it has become clear that without significant infrastructure changes to the water treatment plant itself, these problems will only continue. And that’s just the beginning of the problems with the water treatment plant, according to Shepard. “The plant suffers from persistent performance and production related issues,” he told the city council in a letter. “These performance issues have caused significant increases in operating and personnel

Bond seeks support for a failing roads system BY SAYDE MOSER

“If at first you don’t succeed, try try again.” That could be the theme of the Tillamook County Sustainable Roads Committee, or if you’re the president of the committee, Jon Carnahan, it’s a sign of just how bad the transportation system really is in Tillamook County. “Tillamook County has the worst roads in the state of Oregon,” Carnahan said, adding that the county commissioners first identified a need to fix the roads in 1996. Since then, four different measures to generate the resources to fix the roads have all failed to gain support of the voters – but they’re not giving up. Why? Well, according to Carnahan,

it’s more than just roads. “What we’re really talking about is a transportation system,” he said. “Besides 269 miles of paved roads, we also have 100 bridges, 3,300 culverts and more than 5,000 traffic signs so the system is more than just roads.” It’s this system, Carnahan emphasized, that supports the economy both from a tourism perspective and a commercial one – and represents a public investment by taxpayers of $670 million. “It’s the biggest investment in Tillamook County,” Liane Welch, Director of Public Works for Tillamook County told The Headlight Herald.

Flooding is “the most prevalent natural disaster in Oregon,” Christine Shirley told Tillamook County Commissioners last week. “It happens every year.” Shirley is the national flood insurance program coordinator for the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development and gave a presentation to the commissioners and interested audience members on April 10, after changes in the Federal government’s program – including higher premium rates for most flood insurance purchasers – had been announced in March, with few details. Ninety percent of all disasters in the U.S. include floods, Shirley said. The National Flood Insurance Program, created in 1968, offered flood insurance in exchange for floodplain management by local governments – restricting


how and where buildings could be built in flood zones. FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, subsidized flood insurance rates for buildings built before 1974, or whenever Flood Insurance Rate Maps came out. (Most of those maps in Tillamook County date from the 1970s.)

“The idea was over time, buildings would be mitigated and subsidies would disappear,” Shirley said, “but it hasn’t happened.” FEMA nonetheless ran in the black, she said, until Hurricane Katrina, which devastated New Orleans in 2005.

Scenic Railroad makes ‘test run’ to end of the line BY JOE WRABEK

The Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad ran its first passenger train in four and a half years from Garibaldi to the mouth of the Salmonberry Canyon on the Nehalem River late last month. It was a test run, OCSR’s financial officer J.J. Thompson told the Headlight Herald. “We were going to see if we could make it from Batterson to Salmonberry and back on a tank of water.” OCSR’s two steam engines are oil-fired – they burn recycled motor oil – but use copious amounts of water, Thompson said. The mile-long siding at Batterson, partway up the Nehalem River where trains used to change engines, is the only place where an extra tank car of water can be parked. The excursion also measured how long the trip would take, Thompson explained, and was an opportunity to shoot photos and video of a train on the track for future promotional footage. “The last time a steam engine passed through Salmonberry was 1953 – 60 years ago,” Thompson said. A total of 55 people made the trip, most of them OCSR volunteers and their families and friends. A family with young children that had been ogling the train when it stopped at Wheeler were invited to join the tour. Thompson conducted the trip, riding the caboose at the end of the train and manually checking road crossings for traffic. Salmonberry – the last crossing of Foss Road before the railroad enters the Salmonberry Canyon – is currently the end of the line for the railroad; the tracks and roadbed were destroyed in 2007’s winter storm just short of the road crossing. The road has since been repaired, but not the railroad. Between Wheeler and

Salmonberry, the railroad is open; slides along the route, and alder and blackberry thickets that had grown up in the tracks were cleared by volunteer crews, Thompson said. “We plan to schedule excursions to Salmonberry next year,” he said. “We did not know that we would get it open so soon and were thus cautious in our scheduling.” At the end of the line, a gaggle of OCSR engineers and other support staff posed for pictures with the engine on the trestle just south of the damaged tracks. A couple of campers from the nearby state park had their photos taken with the train as well. OCSR plans to re-open the line as far as Enright, which is in the Salmonberry Canyon five miles beyond the Foss Road crossing at Salmonberry. OCSR’s operating agreement with the Port of Tillamook Bay gives OCSR control of the railroad from the Port of Tillamook Bay all the way to Enright. “We plan to have the track open to Enright by 2015,” Thompson said. With respect to the idea of making the Salmonberry Canyon exclusively a trail and not repairing the railroad line, “At this time the Salmonberry Coalition has acknowledged our agreement with the Port of Tillamook Bay to operate the railroad between Enright (located in the Salmonberry Canyon) and the Port of Tillamook Bay Industrial Park,” Thompson said, “and is investigating making this section rails and trails.” OCSR began operations in 2003 as a part of the Port of Tillamook Bay Railroad and then became a separate nonprofit (with tax-exempt status) in 2005. Their first excursion of the 2013 season is a “Mother’s Day Brunch” train Sunday, May 12. Regular weekend trips begin Memorial Day weekend, and daily trips June 22.

Netarts Fire Hall grand opening BY JOE WRABEK

Netarts’ newly-remodeled (and seismically-upgraded) Fire Hall had its grand opening Saturday, April 13. It’s not a new fire hall (though it looks it); the Netarts Fire Hall has been in the same location for decades. Rendering it earthquake-resistant is new; so is the work that made the building more usable and efficient. The “new” building has a big meeting room that doubles as a firefighters’ training room, and an upstairs for storage of extra turnouts, documents, and an exercise room. Those facilities are in the oldest part of the fire hall, where the firefighting apparatus used to be kept; today,

the apparatus is in an adjacent concrete-block addition. A state grant paid for the seismic upgrade, which tied the older part of the building into the concrete-block addition. The remodeling was paid for out of the fire district’s own reserve funds, Fire Chief Tim Carpenter told the Headlight Herald. The ribbon-cutting was delayed for half an hour while some of the firefighters responded to a medical call. In the interim, attendees got to enjoy coffee and punch, cookies baked in the fire hall’s kitchen, and a cake emblazoned with the Netarts-Oceanside Fire District’s logo. A flat-screen TV displayed a slide show of photos from the remodeling, and a

big table displayed historical documents and photos. Firefighters gave tours of the facility and demonstrated equipment for kids. The ribbons – “Fire Line – Do Not Cross” tape, across the outside stairs and handicapped entrance to the meeting/training room – were cut simultaneously by Carpenter and Scott Campbell, president of the NetartsOceanside Fire District’s board. Netarts and Oceanside originally had separate fire departments, Netarts’ founded in 1945 and Oceanside’s in 1946; the two merged in 1999. “It turned out most of the Oceanside firefighters were living in Netarts,” Carpenter said. “They couldn’t afford to buy in Oceanside.”

Tillamook County Dairy Princess Ambassador: the beacon for dairy BY SAYDE MOSER

On April 20, Taryn Martin will be passing her crown to the newest Tillamook County Dairy Princess Ambassador, Charish Ingram. Martin, 22, has dairy farming in her blood. “My family’s been dairy farming since the late 1800s so that’s what I do,” she said. “I’m a dairy farmer.” She competed against three other girls to win the title, which was the second time she ran. And while it might get incorrectly dubbed a pageant, Martin said it’s more about dairy-based knowledge.

“When you’re crowned the princess, the duties consist of educating the public on dairy products, making sure consumers feel safe eating dairy products and if they have any questions or Taryn Martin concerns, you are the person they go to,” she said. “You’re like the beacon for dairy.” It's not just about dressing up and looking nice, she said. "You have to be educated when you're going out there and

be ready for anybody when they're asking you questions," she said. "Because you'll get some really educated consumers and you want to help them understand what we're all about… You really have to know your dairy if you're going to wear the crown and sash." Several other counties within the state also have diary princess programs, but Tillamook County usually has the most contestants, Martin said - which is why it's unusual that Ingram is the only girl running for 2013. "I thinka lot of it is just because there's not a lot of girls in the age range they want right now," Martin suggested. "But there are probably a lot of 14-15-

year-old girls thinking about running when they get older." Martin said even the younger girls are encouraged to run just to gain the experience, knowledge and practice necessary to actually compete when they turn 17. "Even if you're young, the dairy women will work with you and get you involved in dairy projects and get you to the point of being an ambassador," she said. "If you are passionate and willing to educate people, then this is definitely a title you can embrace," Martin added. "For me, this is just something my family's been doing my whole

life so it was very exciting to go out and talk to people about something I've been doing my whole life. And to feel comfortable about educating people about what I do every day." The winner gets to go to the state-level competition, which Martin said was another great experience. "It definitely showed me how many people are interested in dairy and the dairy industry and all the dairy products," she said. "There are so many people backing it and that's very exciting." Martin said the biggest thing she'll take away from her experience as the dairy ambassador is

that consumers really do love dairy products. "As long as you are there to make them feel safe, they'll always love dairy products," she added. Martin said she loved the many opportunities the program gave her. "It wasn't about being a princess,"she said. "I wanted to talk to consumers." Charish Ingram will be crowned the 2013 Tillamook County Dairy Princess Ambassador on April 20 at 7 p.m. at the Tillamook Cheese Factory. Admission is $15.

Tillamook High School AFS students share thoughts on living in the land of cheese and cows BY SAYDE MOSER

Tillamook High School was recently honored by AFS-USA, receiving the “2013 Top AFS School” award for being a leader in international high school student exchange. According to Don Sheneberger, coordinator for exchange students at the high school, the award reflects the number of students who have been placed at THS over the years – more than 175 to be exact, from 60 different countries. This year they have three, but in years past have had as many as 10 at one time and last year had seven. The high schools selected from around the country for this public recognition are making a profound difference in the lives of students and in society at large. The ability to speak another language, to navigate in a different cultural context, and to marshal a global perspective are skills that today’s students need to succeed in our increasingly interdependent world. “We have a strong local support,” Sheneberger said. “This community has always been very supportive of hosting exchange students.” Sheneberger himself has hosted 13 different times. The students this year hail from Italy, Hong Kong and Brazil and with just three months left in the United States, they sat down with The Headlight Herald to share their thoughts on living in Tillamook and what advice they have for other students interested in studying abroad. How does Tillamook differ from your hometown? Claudia Vargiu (Sardinia, Italy): I am from a pretty small city so it was weird at first because this town looked so much bigger than my hometown, but there’s actually less people here. But everything is bigger – the cars, the houses, even the people. But I like Tillamook because people are more open minded here. I would definitely come back if I could. Anson Nyung (Hong Kong): I’m from a really big city so when I came here, it was all really small. All the buildings are small and everyone drives everywhere. In Hong Kong, you can’t drive until you’re 18 so everyone takes the public transportation, but here everyone drives and I can’t drive so it’s hard for me. It’s also so much quieter than Hong Kong, which took some

getting used to. Bernardo Urban (Brazil): I am constantly sick because of the weather. I have to take extra Vitamin C and all other vitamins so that I’m not sick all the time. What’s the biggest adjustment you’ve had to make? Vargiu: My life is really quiet back home; I’m not really that busy after school but here my host parents have a lot going on all the time so I have to find ways to stay busy now. So I’ve taken up yoga classes and dance classes. Nyung: The biggest adjustment has been that I have to depend on my host parents a lot because I can’t drive, so I can’t really go anywhere or do anything. I was always really busy after school back home with sports, but here I have lots of time because we get out of school so early. Urban: Nobody shakes hands to say hi or goodbye here, and that’s weird for me. The no contact thing is very different. Vargiu: In Italy we used to kiss each other all the time, so the no contact thing is even weirder for me. What’s it like being away from your family for so long? Vargiu: It’s actually cool being away from my parents because I get to be independent for the first time. I’ve had to learn how to take ownership of


what I do and resolve problems by myself. Nyung: I didn’t really depend on my parents all that much, but going this long without them makes me realize how important they are to me. I definitely appreciate my parents more than before and all the things they do for me. Urban: I think it’s been good for me because you have to make choices and be respectful and learn to deal with things without them for a long time. You have to learn how to deal with problems alone so you have to have more trust in yourself and in your friends than before. What advice do you have for your fellow students thinking about studying abroad? Vargiu: Don’t be afraid to talk. If you never talk you’ll never learn… And you always have to make the first step. No one comes to you, so if you want to make friends you have to go to them. Nyung: You have to be loud and outgoing and always make the first move. Otherwise you won’t know anyone and you’ll be alone the entire time. Urban: Don’t be shy. And don’t be afraid to talk, even if they laugh at your accent, which they do… A lot. And if you have a choice, go to a small city; people are more gentle and friendly there.

Rockaway Fire Dept. has cadet program for high schoolers


Continued from Page A1




Rockaway Fire Dept. cadets Traveion Morris, Logan Romig, Shonta Young, Andrew Hoffman and Rebecca Savage with instructor Geoff Grace.

the fire department goes to a fire scene, Grace said. When they turn 18, “they can move right in to being firefighters,” Grace

said. The five cadets are between 15 and 17 years of age; one, Shonta Traveion, will turn 18 this coming August.

And the problems aren’t going away, Carnahan said. But because road bonds have failed in the past, “it made sense to us not to try and tell a different story, but just refine what the tax payers were telling us,” he said. Through public forums and community outreach, Carnahan said he identified four major themes. “The first theme I really saw was that everyone agrees we have bad roads; that’s pretty much unanimous,” he said. “And the second theme I saw was tax payers want some sort of plan and strategy in place. They don’t just want to see us spending money and yet the problem continues to get worse. We have to fix and maintain these roads; if you just spend all your time and money fixing potholes you’ll never get ahead.” Welch calls this strategy a “mix of fixes” – a combination of repairs and preventative measures to “fix the bad roads and keep the good roads good,” she said. Preventative can mean any number of things from chip seals to paving to culvert replacements and drainage improvements. “There are different strategies to fix different roads,” Welch said. “It’s based on the condition of the road and how much money you have.” The Upper Nestucca River Road is failing at about milepost 8.5, just beyond the Blaine Fire Hall. The road is cracking open along the yellow line. Welch’s crew has measured the depth of the crack from five to 24 inches deep. Those measurements are painted on the asphalt. Welch cautions that this is

more than cracked asphalt, it is a road failure; the road could split and fall into the river. People who live above the Blaine Fire Hall or use the road regularly should approach the area with caution during heavy storms. “You could be driving along in the dark and the rain and drive into the river because the road is gone,” she warned. “We need to make some wise decisions on how to spend the money and stabilize the rate of failure on our roads,” she added. Priority roads include those identified as emergency routes, economic development, farm to market roads and roads that go around Hwy 101 that would become vital in the event of a tsunami. Repairs for this system of identified roads would include repairing the drainage, replacing and upsizing culverts when feasible, pavement overlays, grading gravel roads, repairing bridges and levees and maintaining signs and vegetation. Currently, Welch said vegetation management is the only preventative maintenance her department is able to afford – everything else is reacting to damage that’s already been done. But, she said with wellplanned expenditures of local revenue, the county’s transportation system could be turned around in 10 years. Without that revenue, she said her department would continue to do reactive maintenance and fix bridges, but with no preventative actions the system will continue to fail. “With no new money, we can’t take care of what we have and we’ll have to close more roads,” she said. So the road bond, which

goes before the voters on the May 21 ballot, is two equal bond sales of approximately $7.5 million each; one in late 2013 with a five-year debt service and the second in 2018, also with a five-year debt service. The tax rate would be an estimated $0.39 per thousand of assessed property value. So a piece of property with an assessed value of $20,000 would pay $78 a year in property taxes. But another major theme Carnahan identified during his community outreach was that taxpayers feel because the economy of Tillamook County is largely driven by tourism, these tourists should also be responsible for the damage to the roads. While a number of ideas had been kicked around, including a food and beverage tax or a seasonal sales tax, Carnahan said the Tillamook County Economic Development Council is developing a transient room tax ballot measure for the November election to help maintain roads and pay for tourism promotion. However, only 30 percent of those funds can legally be used for the transportation system, he noted, and with a 10 percent countywide tax, that would only generate roughly $500,000 annually for road maintenance. “When we have a $40 million road problem, we can’t hang all our hopes on that,” he said. “But as the economy grows, that other tax will grow too so as we help our economy, the revenue gets better.” Because the bond is broken into two separate sales, that keeps costs to the taxpayer down, Carnahan explained. And because the law in Oregon requires that 85 percent of the

bond money be spent in the first 36 months, this way they can spread the mix of fixes out over a longer period of time. The bond also comes at a time when two other property tax measures will be paid off; the county jail construction bond will be up in 2013/15 and the final payment for Tillamook County General Hospital bond expires in 2015/16. Together, this equates to a 34-cent reduction in property tax rates. So, Carnahan explained, by the fourth year of the first five years of the bond, property taxes will be only two cents more than they are today. The final theme Carnahan has identified is doing a better job of telling the public the story of the transportation system. “I can’t expect community members to vote yes just because we tell them to,” he said. “Everyone has the right to as much information as we can give them and all I can hope for is we’ve done the best we can to provide enough information about the system, the impact on the economy and safety of our citizens that people will support this measure.” If the bond passes, Welch said they would start prepping for paving this summer and start paving next summer.

“These performance issues have caused significant increases in operating and personnel costs and if left unresolved will likely shorten the useful lifespan of the new treatment plant.” To replace the membrane filtration system – which is required to be replaced after a certain amount of usage – would cost the city $600,000 and according to Shepard, the current operating procedures are reducing the lifespan of that system. The solution, which the council adopted last week, includes the addition of sand filters to the current system. It came on the heels of a pilot study the city authorized for $10,000, which, according to City Engineer Mike Henry, should have been done before the new plant was installed. “We got some pricing on that and it would have cost $40,000 to have a study done and the big problem was it was going to take about a year to do the study,” Henry said, adding the city wanted to take advantage of a large sum of money from the government that had come available - but in order to use it the project had to be “shovel ready.” “At that point we kind of gave up on the pilot study, we wanted to get the system designed and ready for bid so we could be in a position to take advantage of those funds,” he said. However, Henry informed the council that they now realize the technology that WesTech Engineering provided does not meet the standards they promised in their contract and the plant now needs the addition of sand filters to meet OHS standards and keep operating costs down. “Had we done the pilot study, it probably would have showed us we needed the sand filters,” he said. “But had we had them when the project was originally bid, it likely would have cost an additional $300400,000 to purchase the equipment and have them installed.” According to Henry, WesTech Engineering is helping offset the costs of the sand filters by providing them at half price. “I think the city is getting a pretty good deal and I think we’re getting it because WesTech knows the plant has not met the expectations they said it would meet,” he said.

“They’ve responded and reduced prices and given some guarantees on chemical reduction.” The sand filters will cut the city’s cost on chemicals by 4050 percent, or $16,000 a year, Henry noted, and reduce the TTHM level by more than 40 percent. “Regardless of the type of treatment we have, we’re going to have TTHMs in the system,” Henry clarified. “As long as we stay under the state limit, we’re fine, but because of several incidents in the last two years where we went over the limit, it’s clearly a problem we need to address and get under control.” “By working with WesTech, we are getting a lot more than just a reduced price on sand filters,” Shepard added. “They are covering many other expenses the city would have to cover had we gone through this alone… We would have liked to avoid this, but we’re going about it in the most efficient way we possibly can and taking a project that could be much more expensive and reduce some of those costs.” Shepard added that investments to the city’s reservoirs and distribution will not solve the inadequacies of the treatment plant. “If we don’t remove the TTHM precursors at the water plant, we will never deal with the real problem,” he said.

Five Neah-Kah-Nie high school students are “cadets” on the Rockaway Beach Volunteer Fire Department. The five – Andrew Hoffman, Traveion Morris, Logan Romig, Rebecca Savage, and Shonta Young – assemble almost every Sunday morning at 9 a.m. at the fire hall for two hours of training. The training covers everything from communications to retrieving gear from fire vehicles. Rockaway Beach started the cadet program in February of this year. Geoff Grace is the cadets’ primary instructor. “We have different trainers every week, but Geoff is always there,” Fire Captain Lynda Holm told the Headlight Herald. “For now, retrieving things off rigs and setting up rehab stations is going to be your job,” Grace told cadets at a recent drill session. “It takes five people to support two people going into a burning building,” he noted.

School district safety improvements bond BY SUPERINTENDENT RANDY SCHILD In May, the Tillamook School District will ask the public to vote on a $ 1 million bond to provide the funds for improving the safety of our schools. The decision to go out for a bond was based on encouragement from numerous community members who asked the district to consider some safety improvements. The cost to taxpayers is expected to be approximately $.08 cents per $1,000 of property value. This translates to a real cost of about $8 per $100,000 of assessed property value each year, for all property in the Tillamook School District boundary. It is worth noting that when Tillamook School District passed the construction bond in 2002, it was approved at a rate of $0.97 per $1,000. Favorable bond rates, along with a bond refinance, have decreased that rate to approximately $0.71 cents per $1,000. If the bond passes, some of the projects that you can expect to see completed in the following year include: • Electronic door lock installation • Video surveillance • Intercom upgrades • Interior classroom door installation • Door lock upgrades • Fire alarm upgrades • Playground fencing

• Exterior lighting upgrades • Exterior door upgrades The district encourages people to look carefully at what could be accomplished with the bond revenue and to vote as they see fit. You won’t see yard signs or hear campaign slogans trying to convince the public to vote yes. We intend to simply give our community the information they need to make the decision based on their individual beliefs. It needs to be clearly stated that the district wants to do everything we can to ensure the safety of our students. Unfortunately there are some evils in this world that cannot be controlled. An incident like what happened earlier this school year in Connecticut would not have been prevented by the modifications that TSD9 is proposing. The reality is that Sandy Hook Elementary had most, if not all, of the safety features that are being proposed with this bond and we know the sad reality of what happened there. But, we do believe with the proposed bond resources, the district could significantly increase the protection of our students from the regular dangers that are evident in our society. The election will take place by way of a mail-in ballot prior to the May 21, 2013, election date. I encourage you to complete your ballot when it arrives.

READERS’ OPEN FORUM Vote for labeling of GMO foods The article in Farm to Fork, “You are what you eat,” is very timely. A bill has just been passed that puts GMOs or GE seeds beyond the reach of any judicial court or any government agency in this country no matter what damage to other crops, people, or soil occur by their use. Roundup Ready soy is now being cultivated on a massive worldwide scale along with other GMO crops. More than 45 million acres in Argentina are covered by genetically engineered soy on which 300 million liters of pesticides are sprayed. Cancer and birth deformities are occurring at increasing rates in areas where spraying is done. A doctor in Argentina states that in some areas in Argentina the primary cause of death for children less than one year old are birth deformities. The crops that are being sprayed absorb the roundup. GMO corn was found to contain 13ppm of glyphosate, compared to zero in nonGMO corn. GMO corn contains extremely high levels of formaldehyde - levels high enough to be toxic to animals over a period of time. Genetically engineered foods have never been proven safe for human consumption. They are not the "Most Tested" product in the world. Please vote for food labeling of GMOs. Please question your congressmen about placing Monsanto above any law of our land. When corporations supersede the power of our government, then what kind of government do we have? Communism? Nope! Socialism? Nope! What kind of government do we have?

Guns kill / cancer kills I own guns and have cancer. I hope to keep the guns and ditch the cancer. But I can’t do it alone. Anyone who has had cancer in the last 10 years has used drugs developed because of the researchers funded by the American Cancer Society. I work with Relay For Life of Tillamook County. We put together teams to raise money, ask for donations and sponsors. We are so fortunate in Tillamook that there is hardly any cancer. Or no one cares, if they don’t have it. We are finding that most people don’t want to help us out. But I read the letters of outrage about animals mistreated and none about family, friends or neighbors who have cancer. I have always been a responsible domestic pet owner and hate to see abuse of any kind. But my priorities are trying to finish the fight against cancer. We are a great cause. We raise money for gas cards, lodging, look good-feel good and other programs. But without your help, cancer kills will be the future. Please look inside yourselves and help us out.

Support National Crime Victims Rights Week National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, April 21-27, 2013, provides an opportunity to celebrate the energy, creativity, and commitment that launched the victims’ rights movement and inspired its progress. The 2013 theme “New Challenges. New Solutions.” summons us to work together to advance crime victims’ rights. It calls us to name the next set of challenges and mobilize to meet them. The theme evokes the spirit that

launched the victims’ rights movement and helped overcome past obstacles. The quotation below about meeting challenges through teamwork is not only inspiring, but speaks to the promotion of crime victims’ rights. “It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.” Napoleon Hill (1883-1970) The power of partnerships launched the crime victims’ rights movement and the achievements we celebrate every year. Families of murdered children and victims of sexual assault, drunk driving, domestic violence, and other crimes mobilized at the grassroots level and joined forces to demand justice for victims of crime. The National Campaign for Victims’ Rights founded by these partners led to President Ronald Reagan’s reforms on behalf of crime victims, his declaration of the first National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, and victims’ rights legislation and victim services. Many barriers and issues continue to challenge the victim services field in Tillamook County, including: Domestic violence Child abuse Sexual assault Elder abuse Victimization of individuals with disabilities This past year, Tillamook County’s District Attorney’s Office in collaboration with Tillamook County General Hospital, Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center, Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office, Tillamook City Police Department, Rockaway City Police, Oregon State Police, Tillamook Senior and Disability Services, and Tillamook County Family Counseling Disability Services formed both an Elder and Disabled Persons Multi-disciplinary Team and a Sexual Assault

Response Team. Through these partnerships, we have made progress in a collaborative approach that is integral to the solution of the challenges we face as a community in fighting crime involving our most vulnerable victims. Helping victims understand all their rights is the purpose of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, April 21 - 27, 2013.

Vote yes and save our roads Ragged roads riddled with potholes, ominous obstructions at every turn. Abdicated accountability has created dangerously degraded county roads that threaten safety, supplies, sales and sustainability. We can no longer afford the penny wise and poundfoolish idea that taxing ourselves to fund the county road repairs is unfair. It’s our county, they are our roads and they are our collective responsibility. The beauty of a property tax is that those with the most property pay the most tax, and every property owner, including absentee homeowners, pays a fair share. If you want to know what your yearly tax bill will be for this measure, look at the assessed value of your property, divide by 1,000 and multiply by .36. ($200,000 / 1000 = 200 x .37 is $72 a year) When you consider the cost of a tire, a rim, new shocks or a front-end alignment, the annual tax looks pretty small. Vote yes and save our roads.

TBCC CONNECTIONS In 2007, Tillamook County voters passed a bond measure to provide funds for college facilities. In 2009, the main campus opened in Tillamook. In 2012, the south county building opened in Cloverdale. Now it’s time for north county. TBCC and the Neah-Kah-Nie School District are taking a different direction in north county. Instead of building a separate facility, we have agreed to remodel classrooms in the existing high school. Depending on final cost estimates, either three or four classrooms will be renovated to provide what Superintendent Paul Erlebach calls “technology rich education.” This means bringing classroom instruction in both high school and college-level courses into the 21st century. Technology rich education depends on the latest tools—chrome books, wireless devices, iPads and laptops—to teach higher-level cognitive skills that involve understanding, interpreting, analyzing and communicating information. First the project: The bond measure designated $450,000 to be used to provide access to technology in north county for

high school students taking college level courses and for TBCC students. The plans include remodeling a science classroom, a math classroom and two language arts classrooms to provide better instructional space, science lab storage and equipment and the necessary high-tech wiring. Resources will be used to purchase laptops, chrome books and other devices for students to use. The work will be done over the summer, and the classrooms will be ready for use in the fall. And the goals: The classrooms will be available not only to high school students and teachers during regular school hours, but also in the evenings for adult learners taking TBCC classes. One of the main goals here is to increase the number of students graduating from high school with college-level credits—giving them a head start on higher education at no cost to them and their families. Many of the college courses offered during the day will be open to TBCC college students who live in north county to pick up the class at the HS. The other goal is to provide a facility for TBCC coursework in north county.

As TBCC is currently actively involved in coordination with Tillamook High School and Nestucca Valley High School, TBCC staff and Neah-Kah-Nie staff will work out lots of details about working more closely together. High school teachers must be approved to teach college level classes. Counseling and career planning efforts need to be meshed with students’ interests and schedules. Students need to learn how to manage college-level work. But we’re confident that all these issues can be worked out to the benefit of both TBCC and Neah-Kah-Nie students. The timeline is tight, and the challenges are daunting, but next school year, under the leadership of President Connie Green and Superintendent Erlebach, north county should be several steps closer to providing state-of-the-art education to its students of all ages. The TBCC Board and President Connie Green welcome your comments and thoughts. The board meets the first Monday of every month beginning at 6 p.m. Or you can reach any of them by calling the college at 503/842-8222, ext. 1000.

not done the job.

I attended two of the meetings held on the road issue and no one answered my question: are we getting the best job for the dollar spent? When you see a crew sent out to patch pot holes in our roads on a rainy day, or when it has just quit raining and they shovel cold patch in five of the 20 plus holes in an area not more than 200 feet long, some one does not know a thing about the job or care enough to do it right. The first paragraph in Joe Wrabek’s article published on Feb. 27, 2013 would make you believe our roads have always been bad. This is not true. I traveled all of the county roads 20 years ago looking for property to buy and I recall no busted up roads or miles of potholes. In 1995, we had a major flood and we had road damage. If I am not mistaken, FEMA donated us money to repair the roads. Where did that money go? While I am asking about funds, I shall ask more. You talked about 40 employees at one time. At one time we – the county – owned a rock quarry, a crusher, an asphalt plant and all the equipment to work it along with men to do all these jobs. Bob Mite Sr. wrote about the sale of these and how it would affect our – the county road departments – ability to take proper care of the roads. No one listened. Now you want me and the other tax payers to pay for their mistakes. What business in Tillamook County has the greatest amount of traffic and affects our roads the most? I asked this and the Cheese Factory has the greatest amount of traffic in Tillamook, not the restaurant and hotel establishments. Who should pay are the people who profit the most from the traffic. Yes, even local people stop at the creamery. Also the different trucks that aid the creamery do a good job of breaking up roadbed. If this bond issue passes I for one expect Jon Carnahan to hold classes at the county road department on how to work and do their job properly. An engineer’s degree has

Don’t order what you can’t pay for Following many years of stress by rightfully concerned citizens on the future of Tillamook County road conditions, I’ve decided that property tax payers have yet to fully take command of their property rights. You have the right to inform your renters that their rent will raise if the road tax on your property goes through. Property tax payers will also need to meet the newly required FEMA insurance bill that is forthcoming. It’s easy to vote yes when you don’t believe it will come out of your pocket. When it comes to a tax investment for road repair, I’ve yet to see a return. I don’t have the solution for road maintenance. I only know what the roads were like in the early 1950’s. I don’t want to go back to wash-boarding muddy gravel but I also remember my grandfather teaching, “you never order something you can’t pay for. You’ll just have to hitch up your britches and go without.”

Jeanie Ferguson Nehalem, Ore.

A public safety issue Our jail is almost paid for. Voters saw that paying for jail beds was a critical issue and the decision to carry a bond has now paid off in many ways regarding public safety. I can’t tell you how many times I have listened to other Oregon Sheriffs talk about how every day they must weigh the liability of who must be released due to the lack of bed space and don’t have our ability to hold

offenders accountable. I realize and appreciate how well we are doing in Tillamook County. We solved our public safety problem ourselves with the justice facility, through a bond measure, a key factor that is making our county safer. Now we are faced with another critical public safety issue: our roads! It is time we fix this problem and if we do not invest now some roads will be limited or closed due to safety issues and will cost us far more later. Our northwest weather (rain and floods) and our road speeds will continue to cause more erosion and pothole hazards, causing unsafe conditions for first responders and the public as well as increasing maintenance costs on all our vehicles. One example, I see drivers using the oncoming lane to avoid slowing down for hazardous potholes and damaging their vehicle. The majority of our county roads don’t have the visibility due to terrain to be using the oncoming lane. The federal safety net money is gone and depending on the federal government, in my opinion, is not necessarily a good thing. Much thought has gone into the best way to fund these repairs, but the bottom line is, just like the jail bond which will be paid off soon, we need to fix our own public safety problem and fix our roads. Vote yes.

related to the CPAC/CAC. I can only remind Mr. Moore that of the numerous times the other commissioners attended the CPAC meetings with nary a comment about the reason for the CPAC. From all that I have learned, read and what not, I sort of got the feeling that there was some public animosity going on; the wind energy continuing boon dogle and the voiding of the CPACs past efforts. Mr. Moore seemed to have missed the real culprits. To wit, the long time county commissioners, who like the status quo and do not speak to those that make waves in their fiefdom. Why didn’t they have some insight two, four or eight years as to the focus of the CPAC? Did it take a new community development director to bring forth the CPAC questions? Let’s see, who was in the community development department and involved with the CPAC creation? Do the names Phipps or Labhart ring a bell? I think an apology to Mr. Baertlien is in order and any further comment focused towards those politicos that molded and established the now defunct CPAC, whose members thought they were doing the best for the community. Mr. Baertlien is probably attempting to salvage the past efforts of the CPAC and is probably not getting much help.

The March 27 issue of the H-H, columnist, Schubert Moore seemed some what disdainful of County Commissioner Bill Baertlien. I wondered why he was taking such a cheap shot towards Baertlien. Yes, I got the Jablein term, but all in all, the focus of his commentary was Baertlien. Then I remembered that Mr. Moore was the major local advocate for Mr Baertlien’s opponent in the most recent election. Now I understood the continuing, somewhat disrespectful commentary. Mr. Moore apparently was crucifying the messenger

more property owners than ever before and they will significantly affect real estate values to the detriment of all. I urge all Tillamook County residents to pay close attention to this issue and attend the next meeting. FEMA is indebted to the US Treasury for approximately 30 billion dollars. Congress has given them a directive to work towards paying that back. This is how it will be done. We will pay the price and that price will be higher than you can imagine with far reaching consequences.

Mr. Baertlien deserves an apology

These changes will affect a large majority of home and business owners as well as the farming community. With the looming prospect of the upcoming FEMA flood map changes, this may include many that have not been affected by the FEMA process in the past. The impact of these changes will be dramatic. When FEMA first came to offer flood insurance, they did so with the intent of keeping premiums at a rate that would keep costs affordable and not force people from their homes by placing too costly of a burden. This is no longer a priority for FEMA. Premiums will be exorbitant. They will reach

Flood insurance changes devestating On April 10 at the Board of Commissioners meeting, a very important topic was discussed. FEMA’s NFIP (National Flood Insurance Program) is making major changes to policy premiums. Changes to the cost of those premiums, to be more exact. While you might not think this is a major issue, you may want to reconsider. Shockingly, very few people attended this meeting which gave a complete overview of what is to come. As complicated as it may be the overwhelming gist of it is very clear. My suggestion to all is, make sure you attend the next one they will be facilitating.

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



Tillamook PUD has proposed a new overhead 115 kV transmission line to connect the existing BPA substation in Tillamook to a new substation to be built near Oceanside. We have collaborated with the City of Tillamook and other landowners to site a transmission route that balances our obligation to provide adequate, reliable power in a cost-effective and safe manner with our commitment to being a good neighbor. While the Project is currently stalled, our goal remains to continue our discussions to identify acceptable solutions to mitigate the issues and concerns surrounding the Project.

Understanding Easements and Rights-of-Way When talking about building new transmission lines, we refer to easements and rights-of-way (ROW).

What is an easement? An easement is a property right allowing Tillamook PUD to use the land or property of another for the purposes defined in the easement. Terms of the easement are negotiated with individual landowners and include specific details such as compensation, actual width of right-of-way on the property and permitted uses within the right-of-way to ensure safety and compliance with the National Electric Safety Code.

So if that is an easement, what is a right-of-way? The right-of-way is the physical land area upon which the facilities are located. The land is secured for a specific purpose, such as transmission lines or roadways.

Is there compensation for acquiring an easement from a landowner? Yes. Once a final route has been established, the process starts with valuation of the affected land. An independent appraiser will develop a qualified opinion of value using standard appraisal practices, including analysis of any available market data and comparable sales, and by taking into consideration the rights being acquired from the landowner. Tillamook PUD will make every effort to obtain an agreement that is fair and reasonable to both parties.

How are landowners paid for an easement? Landowners are typically given a one-time payment based on fair market value for the easement right to their land. Traditionally, the easement payment is based on a percentage of the appraised land value.

What easement rights will be needed for the construction of a power line? Tillamook PUD will require easements that allow for surveying, construction, operation and maintenance of a transmission line across a defined right-of-way located on the landowner’s property. These easements will include the right to clear, trim and remove vegetation and trees from within the right-of-way, as well as tall and dangerously leaning trees adjacent to the right-of-way that may threaten the line if they fall.

When do the rights to an easement end? Easements are perpetual, and the compensation provided to the property owner reflects the permanent nature of the easement.

Generally, how large is the area covered by an easement? The voltage and type of transmission structure being built determine the size of the right-of-way. For the 115-kV lines, the typical right-of-way would be up to 100 feet wide, but may be smaller to accommodate existing and future development. This would be determined through the negotiation process with individual landowners.

What activities are allowed within the easement area? The proposed transmission line by Tillamook PUD would be built to accommodate all existing buildings and current uses within the proposed easement areas. The land may be used for other purposes that do not interfere with the construction, operation or maintenance of the transmission line, such as parking, drainage systems, lawn extensions, trails and paths. Tillamook PUD and the landowner could negotiate other uses if all safety and compliance codes are met, including the National Electric Safety Code.

Why are there restrictions on the owner’s use of the land? Providing electrical energy is an essential public service, and some restrictions are necessary within the right-of-way to ensure that Tillamook PUD can safely and reliably operate and maintain the transmission lines.

As a landowner, Tillamook PUD believes you have the right to:

Daniel Dale Evans Daniel Dale Evans was born Oct. 8, 1944 in Inglewood, Calif. to Daniel Kirtley and Irene Margaret Carol (Nagy) Evans. He passed away April 3, 2013. He married Carolyn Martineau in 1968 and they moved to Oregon. Dan was a saw filer and they moved to northern California in 1972. In the early 1990’s, the family moved back to Oregon, living in LaPine and later settling in Tillamook. Dan enjoyed pen and pencil drawing and was quite an accomplished artist. He also enjoyed collecting and selling knives, and was a car enthusiast. Dan is survived by his wife Carolyn; children Daniel Evans, Eileen Teriipaia, Jeremiah Evans, Andrew Evans and Rosie Evans and 13 grandchildren. A celebration of Dan’s life will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 27 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 4200 12th St., Tillamook. Arrangements by Virgil T. Golden Funeral Service, Salem.

Karl Moritz Karl Moritz was born July 7, 1939. He passed away in his home in Tillamook on April 8, 2013. Karl and I met in 1980 while working at the Tillamook County Family YMCA. By 1982, we unofficially KARL adopted each MORITZ other as family. Karl became “Grandpa” to my children, Dave Ragan, Susie Ragan and Dalen Ragan, all of Tillamook County. Karl also loved his nine great grandchildren, Noah, Brendon, Ethan, Michael, Makaila, Sidney, Logan, Caleb and Braden. Karl loved participating in all their birthdays, holidays, family vacations and especially camping. He loved to hunt, watch wildlife, go clamming and pick any kind of berry and chanterelle mushrooms. We spent many hours gardening and then canning. Karl was proud of his German heritage and he could fix anything. Many people at the YMCA will miss him. He was always willing to help and kept the place sparkling clean. He was proud to have served in the Navy; he and his older brother, Joe (now deceased) served together on the same ship in the 50’s. Karl spent many hours at the Rendezvous restaurant after his retirement in 2001. I’m sure he participated in many lively debates. He was a friend to many. Karl was my dad away form home and walked me down the aisle to wed Michael Parks in 1988. We will miss

him dearly. Efforts are being made to reach his son, daughter and sister. Our family will have a barbeque in his memory sometime in the summer. If you feel the need to donate in Karl’s name, I’m sure he would be pleased to support the youth programs at the YMCA. For his loved ones, you might donate to Tillamook Family Counseling Alcohol Cessation programs. May Karl rest in the grace of the Lord. Love always, Donna Parks

JoAnne Kathleen Fussell JoAnne Kathleen (Everhart) Fussell was born on March 5, 1938, in Salem, Ore. and passed away on March 15, 2013. She married her high school sweetheart, Robert (Bob) Fussell, on Feb. 20, 1957. She was a homemaker, raised four children, and eventually retired with her husband to their beloved Rockaway Beach, Ore. JoAnne's favorite pastimes were gardening, the beach, collecting dolls, and spending time with her family. She was an eternal child at heart, dearly loved playing games with her grandchildren, and lived each day in the pursuit of fun and happiness. She loved to travel and experience new things, and despite her failing health, she never hesitated to accept the offer to go on a road trip. JoAnne often spoke of her favorite memory being the family vacation to Disneyland, where she was the first one on the rides and screamed all the way down Splash Mountain. Her favorite season was spring and favorite holiday was Christmas. She always made the holidays very special for her children and grandchildren with lots of love, good food and conversation. JoAnne had a constant desire for knowledge, loved learning new things, was well read, and enjoyed discussing different cultures and world events with others. She valued kindness towards animals and people, always treating others how she would want to be treated. Forever a giving spirit, JoAnne was a regular contributor to UNICEF, Save the Children, St Jude's, Save the Chimps, and the Nature Conservancy. She instilled in all of us the true meaning of "fami-

Headlight Herald - Tillamook, Ore., Wednesday, April 17, 2013 - Page A7

$50,000 needed for completion of Hebo Fire Station BY MELONIE FERGUSON Fundraisers for the Hebo Station completion project have included a New Year’s Eve dance and St. Patrick’s Day dinner, which have brought in about $1,000 so far, according to Nestucca Rural Fire Protection Fire Chief Kris Weiland. In addition to that, NRFPD applied for and was awarded a $5,000 grant from Tillamook Public Utility District; a total of $50,000 needs to be raised. “We’ll do the work in phases,” the fire chief explained. “The first phase is electrical wiring and sprinklers, then sheet rock in the second phase, and finally the kitchen.” Work on the project should start in late summer or early fall of 2013. Ron Wojtowicz said the St. Patrick’s Day dinner was so well attended that they ran out of meat. In all, it raised about $650 towards the building fund for Hebo’s completion project. Wojtowicz suggested that folks save space on June 20 in their calendar for a fire house cook


off competition and fundraiser in Newport. Appetizers, main courses and desserts will compete for votes and tasters will pay to participate. The time and precise location have yet to be determined. “It’s a lot of fun and it’s for a good cause,” Wojtowicz enthused. NRFPD Division Chief of Operations Mickey Hays of Beaver travels this week to Texas to kick the tires on a potential ‘new’ fire-truck. “The apparatus is a 1999 model with an asking price of $100,000,” Fire Chief Kris Weiland told attendees at the April 10 NRFPD Board Meeting held in Beaver. “A 2002 rig compares at $185,000; we think it’s the better deal.” If the truck passes Hays’ inspection and a purchase is negotiated, the apparatus would ride north on a flatbed truck to Nestucca Valley where it will replace a 1975 model. The Fire Board voted in favor of authorizing Hays to make an offer on the fire truck if he deems it suitable.

Earlier in the meeting, Chief Weiland reported that he completed 10 business inspections on Monday, April 8 with the State Fire Marshal. “We found only minor problems, extension cords and such,” he explained. “Everybody’s doing a pretty good job of addressing fire safety.” He mentioned that there are “at least 35 inspections to go," noting that churches are especially difficult to access during the week. “We have to call them, they have to call back; you know how it goes.” A Budget Committee hearing happens early in May's regular Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District meeting. It will include a portion devoted to patron input, so all are encouraged to attend. The proposed budget is available for review at, by visiting your local fire station, or through Chief Kris Weiland by telephoning 503-392-3313. The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 8 at the Hebo Station. Monthly meeting will continue at the Hebo station through October.

amounting to 10 percent. New flood zone maps may place people in flood zones when they weren’t before, Shirley noted. Those folks will initially get subsidized rates, but the rates will rise 20 percent per year beginning in 2014, with the goal of reaching the “full actuarial rate” in five years. (The new flood maps for Tillamook County were supposed to be issued in May 2013, but have been challenged by some members of Congress, the Headlight Herald was told. The new maps reportedly assumed any levees not built and maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers didn’t exist and accordingly had placed large new areas in “floodplains.” It is not known at this writing when the new maps will be released, or whether they will be changed when they are released.) The elevation of the ground floor of a building is going to be important, Shirley emphasized. A $250,000 home in FEMA’s “AE” flood zone will get flood insurance for $1,400 a year if the ground floor is at “base flood elevation” (BFE), but if it’s four feet below BFE, the cost climbs to $9,500 per year. FEMA’s rate tables are not available to the public, Shirley said. “It makes it difficult to communicate.” To get that actuarial rate, “you’ll need to purchase an elevation certificate,” Shirley said. If you don’t have an elevation certificate, FEMA will charge a “provisional rate” which is very expensive, she said. “We’ll see a demand for elevation certificates,” she added. “An elevation certificate in Tillamook County will run you $800 to $1,200,” County Building Official Craig Wakefield said. What can people do? “Mitigate,” Shirley answered.

The work on Third Street is expected to resume this month, weather dependent, with the contractor mobilizing equipment back to the site to complete the remaining work. This work will include grading and paving of driveways, landscaping areas behind sidewalks, pouring concrete for sidewalks and driveways, paving the top lift of asphalt on Third Street, side streets, and the appropriate driveway connections, completion of the storm water swale in the school field and other project close-out work such as general landscaping, signing and striping, and clean-up. The work is anticipated to be completed by mid-summer. What does this all mean? This means Third Street will have new sidewalks, street lighting, bike lanes, a new

waterline, a storm drainage system and best of all, a new road surface. The project was from Pine Avenue to just east of Marolf Loop. County Public Works Department, with a grant from ODOT, partnered with Tillamook Urban Renewal Agency and the City of Tillamook to improve the safety of the road system. The contractor is required to maintain access to business and residential driveways until they are specifically working on your driveway. Remember businesses are open. Please also remember to keep the traveling public and road workers safe by following the speed signs in construction zones. For more information call your road department at 503-842-3419.

Volunteer Corps’ annual meeting April 22

Continued from Page A1

The Biggert-Waters Reform Act, passed in July 2012, which re-authorized the National Flood Insurance Program for five years, also required FEMA to repay some $30 billion to the U.S. Treasury over 10 years. On top of that, it phases out and removes flood insurance premium subsidies, she said. “Post-FIRM buildings” – those built after the Flood Insurance Rate Maps came out – “have always been rated actuarially,” Shirley told commissioners; their premiums weren’t subsidized, in other words. However, 31 percent of NFIP policyholders in Tillamook County are getting a subsidy, she said. “It varies from 10 percent (of all flood insurance policies) in Manzanita to 57 percent in Nehalem.” Subsidies will remain on pre-FIRM homes, Shirley explained, “but the minute that policy lapses, it will be re-rated.” Flood insurance policies that lapse will be renewed at full actuarial rate and that cost goes up, she said, “the less feet you’re above base flood elevation.” If a house is sold, the buyer will have to pay full actuarial rate, too, she explained. That’s for “primary homes.” Flood insurance subsidies for “non-primary residences” (those lived in by the owners less than 2-1/2 months of the year) began being phased out in January 2013; businesses and properties with “severe repetitive losses” – where the loss exceeds the value of the property – start being phased out in October 2013. Premium rates for those properties will go up 25 percent per year until “full actuarial rate” is reached, Shirley said. People who already have “full actuarial rate” flood insurance policies will see a rate increase, too, Shirley informed commissioners,

Third Street Enhancement Project resuming soon

“Elevate your building.” FEMA does have some mitigation money, but “not enough to do all projects,” she added. In the meantime, you can install flood vents that raise the base flood elevation from ground level to first-floor level. “You save significantly,” she said. If you have improvements in the garage, remove them, Shirley suggested. “If you have a basement that can be filled in, it will significantly reduce flood insurance cost. None of these are fixes that will get you into pre-FIRM rates,” she cautioned. “You can move the structure out of the floodplain.” Questions or advice on mitigating should be directed to the county planning department or county emergency management, she said. “Support the Community Rating System program,” she urged. “For every ‘class’ you move up, policyholders save five percent,” she said. Tillamook County has participated in the program for 10 years, Wakefield noted, and is currently a Class 6 (that translates into a 20 percent discount). A new Community Rating System manual is being issued this year, Wakefield said; “If we want to maintain our [Class] 6, we have to take on additional activities.” Recertification happens at the end of September, he said. Oftentimes, a property will be shown on maps as being in a flood zone, but the building on the property isn’t, Shirley said. “Call the lender and ask for a ‘manual determination,’” she emphasized. Decisions are often made “without human eyes ever looking at the situation.” Owner and lender together can petition FEMA; sometimes, a letter of map amendment can be done “out as shown,” using an aerial photo, and sometimes a

surveyor is necessary. “Unfortunately, FEMA has not trained flood insurance agents yet,” Shirley said. “We have been completely blindsided,” realtor Margaret Paige said. “This will seriously harm many homeowners… It may make some homes virtually worthless.” “The damage to Tillamook County will be significant,” agreed Wakefield. “The real estate market will be affected in many, many ways.” Shirley’s presentation to the county commissioners was videotaped by Jane Scott Productions, and has been airing on both Charter’s Channel 4 and on Scott’s Website since Sunday.

The Emergency Volunteer Corps of Nehalem Bay will holds its annual meeting at 3 p.m., Monday, April 22 at the Pine Grove Community House in Manzanita. The meeting is open to the public, and people not yet familiar with local emergency preparedness are encouraged to attend. The principal speaker will be Patrick Corcoran from the Oregon State University SeaGrant Program. He will discuss the recently published Oregon Resilience Plan, which outlines the impact a large Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake and subsequent tsunami would have on the state’s infrastructure – roads, electricity, water, sewer, and healthcare facilities. “Restoring those services here on the coast will take

much longer than in the valley – months and perhaps years,” said EVCNB spokesman David Dillon. “That’s why we locals need to plan and practice both personal and community preparedness.” The meeting will include updated information on the preparedness strategy for the north Tillamook County area, including Red Cross, Map Your Neighborhood, Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT), Medical Reserve Corps, Emergency Communications, plus the EVC’s newest division – Recovery. The new WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) strategies, for both personal and community use, will also be demonstrated.

Clamming Netarts Bay Education Day Learn to dig clams sustainably with instructors Clair Thomas and Jim Young Saturday, April 27 from 8:15 to 11:30 a.m. at the Netarts Bay kiosk on Whiskey Creek Rd.

Cost: Free, though you do need a shellfish license if you intend to harvest clams. Parking is limited at the kiosk. Participants can park at the boat launch by the Schooner or on pullouts along the road. A school bus will pick up participants at 8:00 and 8:15 from these locations. Wave the bus down if you need a ride. Participants are encouraged to bring a clam shovel and ore rake (there will be around 20 available that can be shared); clam bag or bucket to carry harvested clams and footwear that can get wet: hip waders or rubber boots are ideal. It is not uncommon to walk through some ankle to shin deep water. Sponsors: WEBS: Friends of Netarts Bay and the Salty Dog Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation

Strang’s pitching seals Tillamook’s first win over Astoria since 1998

From left, pitcher Matt Strang anxiously looks on as the potential game ending ground ball skips off Damien Brown’s glove at third base and right into the glove of shortstop Sean Rummage, who gunned down the Astoria runner to end the game, preserving the 2-1 victory for Tillamook.


Headlight Herald Sports

After losing their first two league games by narrow margins to Seaside on April 2 and April 8, the Cheesemakers were in serious jeopardy of falling to 0-4 in Cowapa League play when they played perennial powerhouse Astoria on April 9 and April 11. It's hard to say Tillamook had much chance of winning the games, considering the Cheesemakers haven't beat Astoria since 1998, but things change in the baseball world. On April 9, Tillamook got a gutsy pitching performance from Matt Strang and some defense that bent, but didn't break. It added up to a 2-1 win for Tillamook and their first win over Astoria in 15 years.

Tillamook vs Astoria Game 1 If there was one tangible factor that can be held responsible for a large majority of Tillamook's win over Astoria and many of their wins last season, it's having Strang on the hill. In the Astoria game, Strang didn’t give up a single earned run. When you have pitching like that, it's almost hard to lose. “Astoria is a very good hitting team, but Matty kept them off balance the whole game and let the defense play behind him,” said Tillamook head coach Josh Brown. “We did make some errors which could have caused us to panic, but instead of imploding we stayed solid and got through it.” Strang only gave up three hits in

the game and kept his earned run average hovering right about 2.0 for the season. Tillamook's offense wasn't exactly on fire against Astoria. In all honesty, they only got one hit each from Dean Klugh, Damien Brown, Aj Harmon and Garrett Armstrong, but with a RBI fielders choice from Mitch Baertlein, it was enough. The turning point in the game came in the top of the fifth Tillamook had a 2-0 lead and Astoria had runners on first and second. An Astoria player launched a ball deep into the left-center gap. Centerfielder Eddie Barajas ran down the ball as it rattled the base of the fence and made a great throw to cutoff man Sean Rummage. Rummage turned to threw a bit low catcher Aj Harmon, but Harmon dug it out and

laid a tag on the second runner as he tried to cross the plate to hold the lead at 2-1. “When he hit that ball, all I was thinking is, don't let the second run score,” Brown admitted after the game. “I knew they'd get one, but we really wanted to preserve the lead and stop the second one. It was huge that we did!” Under most circumstances, on a ball hit that deep, the runner from first would score easily, but most teams don't have an athlete like Eddie Barajas in center field. “Eddie is a huge impact out there,” Brown explained. “His speed to get to that ball and the composure to make a great throw to hit his cut was invaluable.”

Tillamook High School is well known for its wrestling program. There's no question that Tillamook wrestlers have dominated as a team, which THS head wrestling coach Lonnie Eggert has always expressed is due to the extra work the kids put in to make themselves better. Last March, one Tillamook wrestler's extra effort rewarded him with a trip to Switzerland and Germany this summer. Dylan Jackman wrestled for Tillamook at Thurston High School in Springfield in the Cultural Exchange Tournament. Of the five wrestlers Tillamook brought to the tournament, Jackman's extra effort earned him the heavyweight title at the meet. Along with that title came an invitation to wrestle overseas this summer in the exchange program, which will send him to Switzerland followed by Germany. “The Exchange Tournament is a tough tournament to win,” said Tillamook Mat Club Coach Rex Metcalfe. “This tournament has been going on for over 30 years and out of all the good wrestlers Tillamook has, we haven't had a lot of them win at this event.” Jackman will be accompanied by Metcalf on the trip and the pair will be gone from July 23 through Aug 4. “The work he's been putting in has allowed him to make this trip,” Metcalfe said. “This is a display of all the extra work is paying off. This guy doesn't quit even in the offseason.” While the trip is an honor, it's not free of charge and Jackman will be raising funds for the journey. If anyone is interested helping Jackman with the financial side of the trip or the Mook Mat Club in general, please contact Rex Metcalfe at 503-801-0446.

Whiskey Creek Fin Clipping another huge success BY JOSIAH DARR

Headlight Herald Sports

From left, Tillamook Anglers member Don Emmonds give some pointers to Austin Bell and Chad Werner as they help clip their share of the approximately 95,000 Spring Chinook clipped at Whiskey Creek on April 13.

Coffee & Your Local News! The two just belong together.

Despite the rain and wind, on April 13 the 24th annal Whiskey Creek Spring Chinook Fin Clipping hosted by the Tillamook Anglers at Whiskey Creek Fish Hatchery was another monumental success not only for the volunteers in attendance, but the Spring Chinook fishermen in the coming years. This year between 92,000 and 95,000 Spring Chinook were clipped to signify them as hatchery raised and therefore retainable by volunteers coming from a number of groups including the Tillamook Anglers, CCA, Kaiser Fishing Club, the Boy Scouts of America, the Multnomah Anglers and the Northwest Steelheaders to name a few. Besides the organized groups there were hundreds of volunteers who came out simply to see what it was all about and help where they could.

See BIG WIN, Page A10

“I'd say we had somewhere between 550 and 600 people come out to help throughout the course of the day,” said Tillamook Anglers President Jerry Dove. “There were a lot of people who didn't stay too long due to the poor weather.” The Spring Chinook clipped at the event will be released for fishermen to pursue in the Wilson and Trask Rivers. Approximately 25,000 of the smolts will be released into the Wilson River while 35,000 will be released into the East Fork of the Trask River and the rest split between Loren's Drift and the 101 boat ramp on the Trask. Spreading out these plantings will provide fisherman a variety of options to fish when the fish come back between two and five years later as adults. “Whiskey Creek and the Springers it produces is a great thing for all the fishermen,” said local fishing guide Ted Teufel. “Without these fish, Springer fishing

wouldn’t be anything close to what it is. “Having the volunteers come out, especially the kids, is a great idea too. It gets people, especially kids, involved with the coastal salmon runs and helps them understand what's going on. Plus, it's a great thing for the community. The more fish to catch, more people will be here spending money while they enjoy the fishery.” Lunch and drinks were provided by various sponsors of the event and a silent auction was held to raise money for the hatchery facility as well. “I want to especially thank Fred Meyer, Reser's Find Foods, Pepsi and Tillamook General Hospital and Loren Parks along with the rest of the businesses who generously donated to our event,” Dove said. “It was great to have so many people attend even in the bad weather. We love having plenty of volunteers and we'll never say we have we have enough.”

Lady Bobcats control their own destiny

not just the top few girls, it's been team effort.” The Bobcats did stumble at Toledo on April 13 in a nonleague game, but Schiewe was glad see how his girls handled the dominant pitcher from Toledo that they couldn't touch last season. “We had a lot of courage at the plate and had some quality at bats,” Schiewe explained. Toledo did get the win, 14-9. At this point, it's all about the last two series of the season. The Cats will play Amity on April 16 and Perrydale on April 19 to prepare for their three games with the 8-1 Gaston Greyhounds starting on April 23 at Gaston. “We're exactly where we want to be,” Schiewe said. “We have total control of our destiny. If we cant beat Gaston, it sets us up for a showdown with Knappa to end the season.” Currently Knappa's only three league losses have come against Gaston and Gaston's only loss came to Vernonia. “After these two nonleague games, the playoff pretty much start for us at Gaston,” Schiewe said.

Jeff and Sue Owens have spent hundreds of dollars and hours of time preparing for the five-month long hike from Mexico into Canada.

Local couple taking on the Pacific Crest Trail BY JOSIAH DARR

Tillamook residents Jeff and Sue Owens have been married for 21 years and on April 14 they left on an adventure that most couples wouldn't dream of. The pair are starting at the southern end of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) near the CaliforniaMexican border and hiking the entire 2,660 miles all the way to the trail’s other end just north of the Canadian border – a five-month jaunt. And what's the reasoning and motivation behind the seemingly endless odyssey? Because they can! “About four years ago I lost a lot of weight and that opened the door to a few more things I could do,” said now hiking enthusiast Sue Owens. “Jeff and I started doing a little hiking and I got hooked on it. Then we spent a few months hiking up at Green Lakes near Bend and we came across the PCT and it caught our interest.” As soon as the seed was planted, Jeff and Sue began doing the necessary research and planning to execute such a daunting trip. Unfortunately, the first time they tried to make the trip they were ill prepared. “In 2011 we set out to do the Oregon section of the trail using the gear that we had, which turned out to be too heavy,” Sue explained. “We started at the California border and we made it to the north end of Crater Like National Park, which is about 120 miles. Along the way my foot began to swell and we weren't going to make it to our next water source. We ended up on a paved highway and got picked up by the National Park Ranger.” Now that the Owens have an idea of how grueling the walk can be, they've reassessed what they'll need to carry and lightened their packs dramatically for this adventure. “My pack that first year was about 40 pounds, this year I'm weighing in at about 28 pounds,” Sue said. “We've

also got some new gear, new shoes and we've trained a lot harder to be physically ready.” Due to the lighter capacity packs, the Owens' won't be carrying much food on their hike. Instead they'll be picking up little bits and pieces as they go from town to town or from resorts they pass by. “We're not carrying any kind of a camp stove,” Jeff explained. “We're eating all of our food raw or uncooked. We're also going to have resupply packs sent to us periodically along the trail. We can pick them up if the trail goes past a resort. If the trail goes through a town, we'll shop.” Another concern for the hikers is how will they have enough water along the way, but Jeff seems to have a plan for obtaining the precious liquid. “We need to carry our water and it looks like it's going to be a particularly dry year so we're pretty much planing on hiking from water source to water source,” he said. “If we don't pay attention to what we're doing, it could get pretty serious pretty fast.” When it's all said and done, the hikers will have taken five months off work to complete their journey, not including the months of preparation they've already invested. Part of that preparation was setting up a blog page where the two of them can update their progress as they go when they get somewhere with Internet access. The blog can be accessed at Most hikers along the trail are far younger than the Owens', but they're not worried about age being an issue. They know their physically ready and mentally focused to complete the trip by their estimated end date of Sept. 13. “All my life I've been told I couldn't do it. This time I want to finish something people have said I couldn't do; it's important to me,” Sue said. “It's going to push our limits and it's something we want to cross off our bucket list.”

The Lady Cats have won six straight league games and eight out of their first nine to sit at 8-1 with only six league games left. But, the remaining games are against a very good Knappa team and an even better Gaston team. “We had a great week last week,” said Bobcats head coach Jess Schiewe. “Seven games in five days was a marathon, but it was fun!” In their last three series, the Bobcats swept Neah-Kah-Nie and Portland Christian and took two of three from Vernonia. While being 8-1 seems great Schiewe says his team isn't very far from where they were last year with Gaston and Knappa coming up. “We were 7-2 last year after Neah-KahNie, P.C. and Vernonia,” Schiewe explained. “We got one more win this season against Vernonia, but it's all going to come down to the end.” One thing that Schiewe likes about his team this season is how they're winning their games. They're fighting until the very end.


Lacy Boisa drives the ball deep to left center with two outs in the sixth inning against Portlands Christian to help cap off the come from behind win.

“Two of the Portland Christian games and two of the Neah-Kah-Nie games we were trailing late and had to come back to win, but the girls are not afraid of the challenge,” Schiewe said. “The best part is we're doing it with our entire line up. It's

Cats and Mooks place well at the Meet of Champions Headlight Herald Sports

The Tillamook Cheesemakers and the Nestucca Bobcats both sent athletes to the Meet of Champions at Willamette University on April 13. Nestucca Bobcats The Bobcats sent six athletes to the event to face their toughest competition of the year. The Cats did well, bringing home several PRs, three medals and valuable experience. Austin McKillip got things started by making the javelin final, throwing a pair of 145foot throws to finish just out of the medals in ninth. Brett Elder stepped up with a PR and a freshman class record with a

BIG WIN: With the momentum shifted heavily in their favor, Tillamook didn't threaten in their half of the seventh and ended the game on a very heads-up play from Rummage at shortstop. With two outs, Astoria hit a hard grounder towards third that skipped off Damien Brown’s glove and into the gap between short and third. The ball popped up in the air, but Rummage didn’t give up and grabbed the tipped ball mid-air

sixth place medal throw of 133-11 in the discus. Drace Moeller had an incredibly consistent series of throws, none under 46-feet and topping out with a second place medal throw of 48-6. Meanwhile on the track, Kycie Richwine ran a strong third place in the 100m hurdles with a PR of 17.31. The Nestucca sophomore duo of Courtney Ahn and Rebecca Whittles ran great races in the 3000m. Ahn with a season best 12:08 (30 second improvement) and Whittles with a fantastic 40 second PR of 12:11. “The girls lost track of the lap count, I think they could have probably run even faster,” said excited Bobcat coach Gordon Whitehead. “The experi-

ence of facing 4A competition with finals format should help further down the road as the we get into the big meet portion of our season.” Tillamook Cheesemakers Tillamook took 10 boys and one girl to the Meet of Champions and ended up with one overall champion. Aaron Josi won the 3000m at the event and turned in the ninth fastest time in THS history in the process. Nate McRae also had a great meet for Tillamook taking second place in th high jump with a 6-foot leap and third in the high hurdles with the fifth fastest time in school history. Sabrina Pullman, Tillamook's lone girl, took sixth place

in the 3000m while turning in a lifetime best by 23 seconds. In the 1500m, Hector Rojo set a PR by 14 seconds and Andrew Jenck set a new PR by almost 50 seconds. “The kids are putting up great times but I expect them to continue to improve,” said Tillamook track Coach Mark Dean. “We haven't even had any decent weather yet, let alone warm weather. That will really help the times, especially the sprinters.” The Tillamook track team will compete again on April 18 at home starting at 3:30 p.m. The Bobcat track team will go to Sheridan for a West Valley League meet also on April 18 starting at 3:30 p.m.

Continued from Page A9 behind Brown and gunned down the runner at first to end the game. Tillamook got the win, 2-1 and moved to 1-2 in Cowapa League play. “It just shows what we're capable of,” Brown said about the first win over Astoria in over a decade. Game 2 Tillamook's high from the previous big win didn't last too

long. Actually it kept going until the first pitch on April 11 when the Astoria lead off hitter launched a home run on the first pitch of the game. Apparently the Astoria players were pretty fired up after losing to Tillamook for the first time since most the team was barely out of diapers, because they throttled the Cheesemakers in the second game. “They came back with a vengeance,” Brown said with a

laugh. “We did have a few good things to take away from the loss. We didn't strike out in the game which is a big plus for us because we've struggled at the plate and we've been working on it. Having no strikeouts means we're putting the ball in play, we just need to find some holes.” Astoria made quick work of Tillamook in five innings, 11-1.

Male Vocalist of the Year Séamus Begley with Oisín Mac Diarmada in Manzanita Séamus Begley, TG4 Traditional Singer of the Year Award 2013 and Oisín Mac Diarmada will perform on Sunsay, May 26 at the Pine Grove Community House in Manzanita. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and show starts at 7 p.m for the all ages show. Currently touring extensively with Oisín Mac Diarmada and Téada, Begley is from the famous musical family from Baile na bPoc near Baile na nGall on the Dingle peninsula. By the age of fourteen he was playing accordion at local dances. In 1972 he recorded his first album, An Ciarraíoch Mallaithe, with his sister Máire. They made a second album, Planxtaí Bhaile na bPoc, for Gael Linn in 1989 that featured the playing of Steve Cooney. Touring far and wide in the years afterwards, Cooney and Begley eventually recorded Meitheal together in 1996. Begley's album with guitarist Jim Murray, Ragairn, was voted 2001 Traditional Album of the Year in both Hot Press

and the Irish Times. Murray and Begley recorded a second album in 2009 entitled Éirí Go Lá. He recorded Disgrace Notes with Tim Edey and his singing can also be heard on the recent Béal Tuinne in the company of other West Kerry singers. To many people he exemplifies the perfect, traditional Irish tenor. Begley, called the quintessential Irish musician, is an eager storyteller known for his

sharp wit and famous for pumping out tune after tune at all night sessions with an energy that is sometimes alarming. Displaying a frisky spontaneity in his accordion-playing, he has toured extensively with performers such as Altan, Steve Cooney and Mary Black. He has recently been awarded the prestigious 2013 TG4 Singer of the Year in Ireland in recognition of his major contribution to Irish singing.

Fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada, founder of noted group Téada, has been described by The Irish Echo's Earle Hitchner as "one of the most gifted and creative traditional fiddlers playing today." He has appeared as guest soloist with the Southern Georgia Symphony Orchestra in the US and accompanied Irish President Mary McAleese on a State visit to Romania. Begley and Mac Diarmada have teamed up in an exciting and intimate combination, exploring tunes and songs from West Kerry to Sligo. Having already released two duo albums Le Chéile and An Irish Christmas Soundscape, Séamus has recently also teamed up with Oisín in the band Téada. The Pine Grove Community House is located at 225 Laneda Ave. in Manzanita. Admission is $20 at the door, cash or check only. To purchase tickets online, go to

TCF Announces 2013 Entertainment Line-up The 2013 Tillamook County Fair is quickly approaching and fair manager Miranda Muir announced that the TCF Board and staff are “excited that we were able to schedule some amazing performers for this year’s fair.” With a collection of up and coming country, traditional country and classic rock, Muir feels this year’s fair will provide entertainment for all ages and fans of a wide variety of music. The fair will begin Wednesday, Aug. 7 with newcomer Lee Brice on stage that evening. Sponsored by Sheldon Oil Company and Less Schwab Tires of Tillamook, Brice’s recording career started more than six years ago with the release of his debut album, Love Like Crazy. Since then the star has been nominated for four Academy of Country Music Awards and his sophomore album, Hard 2 Love produced two number one hits, “A Woman Like You” and “Hard to Love.” His current hit “I Drive Your Truck” was released in December 2012 and has spent

14 weeks in the top 10 on the Billboard Chart. Brice is also a writer and most notably cowrote Garth Brooks’ “More Than A Memory” which became the first single in the history of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart to debut at number one. TLC Federal Credit Union and Tillamook County Creamery Association sponsor Country Star Travis Tritt, Thursday August 8. With hits such as “T-R-O-U-B-L-E” and “Best of Intentions” Tritt’s career has lasted more than two decades in an industry where longevity is not the norm. Travis is the recipient of several Country Music Association awards as well as Grammy awards and is a double threat with a reputable acting career as well. With several number one hits including “Help Me Hold On” and “Anymore” Travis Tritt is a country music staple. The final concert sponsored by the Tillamook County Merchant’s Day Businesses will be Friday, Aug. 9 with the classic rock band Foghat. The group formed in 1971 and

have been making music and touring the world ever since. Their hits “Slow Ride” and “Drivin’ Wheel” were only a small portion of their success as their album Fool For the City went platinum and Foghat Live double platinum. After the loss of original member Lonesome Dave Peverett in 2000, the group collaborated with former Ted Nugent singer, Charlie Huhn. Since that time they have released several live albums, DVD collections, and their latest new album Last Train Home in 2010. The fair will wrap up Friday, Aug. 10 with the traditional Demolition Derby sponsored by Carson Oil Company, The Headlight Herald and Clatsop Distributing Company. The fair is also looking forward to an additional day of Pig-N-Ford racing this year. They will be adding an exhibition day of racing on Wednesday and will of course host the World Championships Saturday evening. There are also new entertainers mixed with staples such as Brad’s Reptiles for the Courtyard Stage.

The Joe Stoddard Show, which is described as a musical comedy, will perform daily and the Mark and Dre Show or Comedy Chaos as they describe it will perform both on the Courtyard Stage and throughout the fairgrounds. Additionally the fair is adding a free kid’s area with the addition of both Puzzlemania and a Farmer For The Day exhibit in the tennis courts. None of the entertainment at the 2013 Tillamook County Fair would be possible without area businesses that sponsor the event. Although there are too many to list here, the fair would ask that area residents support those that support the fair and take note throughout this year’s Premium Book (distributed in late May) and during the fair of those businesses that make it happen. “If you enjoy the fair, please be sure to let those businesses know and say thank you.” said Muir “We absolutely cannot make it happen without them.”

So excited about this - something for the little ones to do and get some of their energy out. The Neah-Kah-Nie Middle School 2013 Day of Service is coming up on Friday April 19. This is a positive project that gives the opportunity to give to and be a part of a larger community, which 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. Participants include the NKN Middle School’s entire student body of approximately 170 students as well as many volunteers, staff and community partners working together at 22 project sites throughout the school district. The middle school is seeking financial support to help cover some of this ambitious endeavor. Please send donations to: NKN Middle School Day of Service, 25111 Hwy.101 N. Rockaway Beach, Oregon 97136. Sponsors to date are the Mudd-Nick Foundation, First Student Transportation, Rockaway

Lions, SOLVE, Stockton's Lumber Supply, SAI Design & Build and Divine Bistro. When the work is done, students will be bussed back to the middle school to enjoy a barbecue for all their hard work. Any donations are welcome to support this and future events. This is a terrific event the students establish new community connections and learn through giving back to their community. The Nehalem Elementary School is having their annual art show and spring concert on Tuesday, April 30. The art show will start at 6 p.m. Students' art projects that have been worked on with the "Art Moms" (Lori Mersereau and Angel Soans) will be displayed in the cafeteria and hallways. The fifth grade class will hold a silent auction to raise funds for an end of the year field trip as they head off for middle school. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. in the gym. The art show will continue after the concert until 8:30 p.m. So come and support our school and children for all their hard work they have done and see the fifth grade class at their last elementary concert performance. The Multi-Modular Early Childhood screening meets the health and educational needs of children ages three - six. This will be offered in Tillamook; the screenings are free and will be held at the Tillamook fairgrounds on April 24, 25, and 26. For appointments call: 503815-2292 or 503-368-2292 or 503-965-2292, and also receive information about transportation on "the Wave" if needed.

We thought the Tillamook concert was very good, but the guys found the Rain group much better.




hen Sonya Kazen and Fred Bassett of Beaver opened for David Roth’s tenth annual concert in Pacific City last Tuesday, they were kicking off birthday bashes for two in the audience; both Barbara Brown of Monkey Business Nursery and Lori Byrd of Sandlake got a good singing to, including “Happy Birthday” by everyone attending the Grateful Bread event.

Other attendees included June Bolden, Ruby Fry-Matson, Bonnie Lommen, Jim and Nancy Oleson and Barbara Sanders, among many others. A fringe benefit of attending Nestucca’s School Board Meeting for the Headlight Herald this past week was getting to preview a pair of Speechies’ pieces as they’re polished up for the State Speech Tournament this coming weekend. Chelsea Wallace read an impressive argument for balancing safety concerns with common sense in the wake of recent school shootings. Jenny Sewell then provided an emotional excerpt from Brinker’s “Promise Me” - telling of Susan Komen, the name-sake of the crusade against breast cancer. Parts of her piece were memorized and rendered so skillfully that some listeners wiped tears from their eyes. Others who qualified for the state tournament from Nestucca include Tiana Fitch and Makayla Meyer; Riley Peterson

t is with this intent that my spring-cleaning has begun in earnest. I am going room to room; trying to simplify our life.

Netarts/Oceanside Fire District’s Open-House at Station #61 on April 13 was a long awaited event for the Villages. Chief Carpenter and Board President Scott Campbell “cut the ceremonial caution tape,” officially opening the newly remodeled fire station and community hall. The firefighters gave tours of the new offices, storage area upstairs and the hall/fire training room. The “smell” of chocolate chip cookies being baked greeted everyone. Punch, coffee and a special “Station #61” cake were served. Smiles, laughter, and a shared sense of community filled the room! Paula Redman, wife of former Netarts Fire Chief Ron Redman, was an honored guest. Ron was chief from 1993-98, and assistant chief for several years. Former Oceanside Fire Chief, Paul Peterson was also honored. He was instrumental in the merger of the two fire departments in 1999. The Whiskey Creek Fish Hatchery is 25 years old! The Tillamook Anglers held their “24th Fin Clipping” on Saturday, April 13. Hundreds of Volunteers turned out to spend four and a half hours clipping 100,000 little Chinook salmon… The event was once again a huge success. The Tillamook Anglers would like to thank: Keizer Rotary Club, who built a permanent covered

BBQ area, Tillamook Hospital, Fred Meyer, Pepsi, and Reser Fine Food. “We appreciate your support and all of the volunteers who came out to help!” The Friends of Netarts Park are a group of citizens with a common interest in the care, upkeep, and overall improvement and enjoyment of the Netarts Park. A draft of the bylaws are available at the fire department. The next meeting is Saturday, April 20 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. at the Netarts Community Club. A work party will be held the morning of Saturday, April 27. The 27th annual Oceanside Open will be April 20-21. Hangliders and paragliders from all over the Northwest, will be soaring in the skies above Oceanside. This is a favorite event for spectators and pilots alike. Pilots will launch from the top of Maxwell Mountain Road and land on the Oceanside beach (weather permitting). The alternate launch site is Anderson’s view point – south of Cape Lookout State Park. Instructional flights will be available from certified tandem pilots. The sky looks like it is full of large, colorful butterflies and is amazing to watch. It is presented by the Cascade Paragliding Club. For more information or to register for the event go to Remember – “The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak… Simplify, simplify, simplify!”

where they normally meet. Thanks to Gene and Carol Tish for making the hotel available. Remember the Garibaldi Museum scholarships: there’s one $1,000 scholarship for a TBCC student, and one $1,000 and three $750 scholarships for Tillamook County high school students (who can come from anywhere in the county). Deadlines are April 30 for the high school students’ essays and May 30 for TBCC students’ PowerPoint presentations. The Museum’s available for research (and there’s a lot of information there); regular open hours are Thursday through Monday, 10-4; if you need a different time, call them at 503/322-8411. The theme(s) for the 2013 Summer Reading Program have been announced. For the preteens, it’s “Dig Into Reading”; the teenagers’ program is “Ground Breaking Reads”; and for the adults, the theme is “Gotcha Covered.” As in past years, there will be prizes. (Those who entered the adult summer reading program last year will recall there were both Garibaldi prizes and prizes from a county-wide drawing.) There will be five performer events during the Garibaldi Library’s summer reading program this year. (In previous years, there had been only three.) On Wednesday, June 19, kicking off the summer reading program will be “Mr. Bill’s Silly

Summer Sing-a-Long.” Friday, July 5 (yes, the Library’s open the day after Independence Day), they’ll have The Reptile Man. Both were here last year, and were reportedly big hits. Thursday, July 11’s performers will be Kristie Reddick and Jessica Honaker, “The Bug Chicks.” Wednesday, Aug. 7, “Curious the George” will perform, assisted by Linda Werner. And Friday, Aug. 16, they’ll have Jay Fraser, a comedic magician and “balloon storyteller.” Linda Werner, the retired Rockaway Beach librarian, will be back, too, every Wednesday afternoon from 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. June 26 through Aug. 14, for a storyand-craft program. One notable absence this summer will be the Bay City Arts Center’s “Intergalactic Puppet Theatre.” Karen Hanson’s iconic sock puppets – all pigs, and all Star Wars characters – performed for the Summer Reading program the last three summers. They’ve retired, now; their last performance was last year (for the Summer Reading Program, in fact) – their “out there” take on the Wizard of Oz story, “Jedi Pigs of Oz.” The puppets – Darth, Luke, Princess Leah, Hansolo, Yoda, and Chewy the Cowardly Wookie – have moved, with creator Karen and her husband Howie, to Walla Walla, where Howie’s new job is.

SUGAR BROSIUS 503-653-1449


OW! Today is my birthday! Happy Birthday to me! My birthday request is prayers for my brother. He is fighting the battle of his life right now. He has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. It's been pretty rough, but we're all trying to stay positive. The Tillamook County Master Gardener Association will be holding its plant sale on Saturday, May 4, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Pavilion at the Tillamook County Fairgrounds. Not only will there be vegetable starts, perennials, herbs, and arts and craft items, but there will be a garden related garage sale too. And you can pick up a hanging basket sold by the Tillamook High School FFA. The Oregon Youth Authority will have hypertufa bowls planted with sedums and succulents. Tillamook 4-H will be hosting the food concession with beverages, snacks and hot dogs and look for the outside vendors with items to sell. It will definitely be an event you won't want to miss. Just got a messagefrom Betty Baumgart. She's been in California visiting her 92-yearold mom. She had taken a fall last year and after she finished her physical therapy, Betty took her to the sunshine state to celebrate. How wonderful to be able to spend time with her mom like that. How I miss my mom and mother-in-law. She also told me about a free

n between these lovely days of sunshine we sure do have a lot of rain and wind. Gordon McCraw tells me it is April after all. Soon everyone will be busy planting flowers and putting in their gardens. Robert and Kathy Pollock plan on putting in a good size garden and I get to water and weed it. I love gardens of any kind but don’t care for the initial work of starting the plants so this works out great for all of us. Gordon McCraw sent me this bit of information that I wanted to share with all of you: Nixle Alerting System: I was reminded yesterday that those individuals using, that signed up for Nixle email alerts through, will need to log in and change their email address there as well.

Also from John Sollman this week: “I attended the celebration of Addie Montgomery’s life last Saturday, March 30. Ann Vandehey and others did a great job arranging Addie’s front room and dining room. There were pictures of Addie in her younger days, pictures of her family and friends in Minneapolis and Portland, and many pictures of her and her many Bay City friends.

NOTES FROM THE COAST customer service campaign called Q Care. (The Q stands for Quality.) Everyone in Tillamook County is being challenged to Q Care Certify. I don't have enough room in my column to explain what all of this is about, but several cities in our county have signed a proclamation supporting them. If our visitors would stay "One More Night" the accommodation dollars alone would increase to $47 million a year in Tillamook County. It's all about providing an exceptional customer service experience. So if you listen to KTIL from April to September for the Phil Collins song "One More Night" there will be a message regarding certification. There's so much more information. So all of you - including visitor centers, tourism commissions, Chamber of Commerce, business owners and city staff be sure to get certified. Contact Be on the lookout for NKN Middle School's Annual Day of Service for Earth Day, April 19. If you'd like to help, give them a call or just give them thumbs up as you walk or drive by. These kids are tremendous. Last week I mentioned our delightful Easter egg hunt at Phyllis Baker City Park (That has a nice ring to it). I hadn't been able to get all the information I wanted to give you. Now I have it for you. First Student's bunny this year was Margie Bowden. Margie, you were terrific. And Tillamook's wonderful Papa Murphy's store donated 60 eggs stuffed with prizes including coupons for their products. These were added to our 2,000 plastic eggs (filled with candy or toys), 1,000 real Easter eggs and 17 pounds of salt-water taffy. There were a lot of happy kids that day at the park. "Never let a bad day make you feel like you've had a bad life." That's Rockaway Beach "Sugar Coated."

It’s better to light one candle W

e don’t have enough synergy in Tillamook County according to an article by fine HH staff writer Joe Wrabek about a Tourism Symposium held in Tillamook recently. Synergy is one of those words the average person doesn’t use but always means to; to show we’re educated. Synergy means the answer is greater than the sum of its parts. 1+1=2, I was taught in my math group at Roger Q. Mills Elementary School in Texas. With synergy, 1+1=3. If I had put 1+1=3 in my arithmetic workbook, I would never have gotten into the Blue Birds, the group I wanted in, from the group I was in, the Albatrosses. Texans believe in rugged individualism. They frown on synergy. According to Wrabek, the reason we need synergy is to get tourism money. The article claimed people with tourism money to spend head to Clatsop County to the north or Lincoln County below and then drive back and forth skipping Tillamook County, creating a veritable money freeway. Tillamook County’s strategy is to slow them down long enough to leave some money here. I thought our roads would have done the trick. Most of that, though, goes to

creating synergy with a sushi restaurant and bait shop. I tried using this strategy on my wife Joani, but she’s immune to synergy. Granted it was still in the test phase, but when I tried combining tasks like washing the dishes and the car, she was not synergetic. She said, only your clothes, when I suggested synergizing showering and the laundry. Another opportunity for synergy would be the obvious one for our county. Dairymen have gone to Sweden to visit plants that turn manure and the methane it creates into electricity. They came back to Oregon and there are now digesters that combine dairies and energy production, which take a problem and turn it into a solution, which is what synergy is all about. Scientists from Nanyang Technological University have invented a new toilet system that will turn human waste into electricity and fertilizers and also reduce the amount of water needed for flushing by up to 90 percent compared to current toilet systems. I suggested to Joani we could get one of those systems. For once, she actually listened to one of my ideas instead of poopooing it. That might be a good idea, she said. You could personally light up our neighborhood.

Nestucca’s spring musical is a first class performance on a second class license BY MELONIE FERGUSON

Because Nestucca's spring musical is performing under a second class license, according to Musical Director Kathleen Serven, the play's title can't be revealed in print advertising. "Someone in the Portland area bought a first class license, ours is second class, so we can only use in-school advertising, like our reader board," Serven explained.

tire dealers and auto repair shops, which, I guess, is a kind of synergy. The main ideas thrown around in the symposium was to get tourist money by creating synergy with water trails kayakers might use, lighthouses, and the Quilt Trails - giant wooden quilt representations nailed to the SCHUBERT front of dairy barns. I don’t know how many MOORE lighthouse-viewing, quilting kayakers there are out there, but that sounds like a pretty narrow market to me. I have a few suggestions for creating synergy. The Tillamook County Creamery Association could synergize with the Tillamook Transportation District. Since milk trucks are going to dairies all over the county anyway, they could drag a trailer with seating. The customers could view the Quilt Trail while they’re waiting for the milk truck to fill. Since we live in a fishing destination county and with the growing concern about healthful diets, a natural result would be

Wyatt Peterson, a Junior of Hebo, for the lead role of Tevye. He plays husband and father to five daughters, torn between tradition and changing times amidst religious intolerance in Tzarist Russia at the turn of the Twentieth Century. Wyatt described an impromptu audition. "Mrs. Serven caught me during lunch one day, and was like, 'can you sing?'" he said. "We sang a couple of nursery rhymes together, like 'Mary had a little lamb.' Not only have I never been in a play, I've never even been in choir before!" An observer in the audience would never guess his secret as Wyatt belts out the refrain of his character's signature song, "Tradition...Tradition!" "The singing is my favorite part, it's a lot of fun," he said. Maggie Mick, a sophomore from Pacific City plays his wife and the mother, Golde. Maggie is a veteran of both Cinderella and The Sound of Music during her tenure at NHS. "I've always worked behind the scenes before," Mick con-

fided, "on the sets and with the stage crew. We've been practicing since February; it's a lot of work." Hard work is a theme echoed by Lauren Morris, a Hebo Senior who plays the couple's oldest daughter, Tzeitel. "We've worked really hard; out of all the musicals, this is the one I've worked on the hardest." Morris speaks with some authority, being a veteran of every stage production since her debut in the Fall play her Freshman year, including the previously mentioned musicals and Bye Bye Birdie. Jenny Sewell and Nicole Bishop play her younger sisters. The three sing a trio early in the show, heads covered in triangular kerchiefs and voices blending harmoniously, "For

Papa, make him a scholar, for Mama make him rich as a king, for me well, I wouldn't holler if he was as handsome as anything. Matchmaker matchmaker make me a match..." The girls play opposite Joey Chatelain as Motel, Parker Jensen as Hodel and Brian Anderson as Fyedka. Sewell and the young men were unavailable for Headlight Herald interviews, but Bishop, a Junior who lives just inside the school district's north boundary, described the wedding scene as her favorite. "It's an awesome play; no one should miss it,” she said. The dramatic production is under the direction of Kelli McMellon, Kathleen Serven serves as musical director, and Annie Bishop is the choreographer.

This gorgeous fellow is Milo. In keeping with his superstar looks, Milo is content to stay indoors, passing his days watching the world from his window seat and being cuddled by his humans. At night, Milo sleeps on the bed, keeping his person all warm and safely in sight. His luscious Maine Coon coat is as soft as silk, and he truly loves to have it brushed everyday to keep it looking tip-top. Milo is neutered, current with shots, has impeccable house manners, and asks only that he be the sole male cat in the house. After all, no star wants competition, now do they?
