Connecting families with fish Kids help release winter steelhead into streams; learn importance of salmon to the ecosystem By Sayde Moser

their environment. “Salmon and steelhead symbolized the American dream for western settlers and were important sources of food and sustainability for Native Americans,” she said. Berkshire said in 1912 it was common to catch 100 salmon at a time that sold for 3.5 cents a pound. “They were very plentiful and symbolized the north west for a long time,” she said, adding that when the salmon return to the river to spawn and die they leave behind nutrients vital for many

Dozens of children and their parents braved the Oregon rain to learn about the life cycle of salmon and participate by releasing 250 winter steelhead into Jones Creek over the weekend. “Salmon connect the ocean, forest and people,” Denise Berkshire, Education and Interpretation Specialist, told the group during an educational presentation to help families understand the importance salmon have on

Scene of the May 20 accident that took the life of Luis Corona Espinoza of Beaver.

Accident claims life of 20 year-old man Oregon State Police (OSP) is continuing the investigation into Monday morning’s single vehicle fatal traffic crash along Highway 101 about 15 miles south of Tillamook that resulted in the death of a 20-year-old local man. Speed and failure to wear a safety belt are possible contributing factors. On May 20, 2013 at approximately 6:18 a.m., a 2001 Dodge pickup driven by Luis Corona Espinoza, 20, of Beaver was northbound on Highway 101 near milepost 81. As the pickup was negotiating a sweeping right curve, the driver lost control and traveled off the shoulder striking an embankment. The pickup rolled and came to rest on its roof. The driver, who was not using safety restraints, was ejected from the pickup and pronounced deceased at the scene.

forest animals and trees. Oregon Department of Forestry recieved the native, wild fish eggs in April, which came out of the Wilson River. “They will help enhance the fish runs,” she explained, “because they can spawn more than once before they die.” Families came from the valley and the coast to participate and everyone got a chance to release a fish into the creek.

Cycling through drizzle, thousands reach the beach JULIUS JORTNER

For the Headlight Herald

Shortly after noon on May 18, bicyclists started arriving at Cape Kiwanda. They had started riding that morning from Portland, Newberg, Amity, or Grand Ronde, participating in the 23rd annual “Reach the Beach” fundraiser for the American Lung Association of Oregon. About 3,000 cyclists, each of whom have donated to the lung association, were expected that drizzly Saturday afternoon. At the tented area behind the Pelican Pub, the Pelican’s general manager Ken Henson was overseeing set up of the food service. He said he expected to serve about 3,500 meals. At the nearby temporary beer garden, brewmaster Darron Welch estimated thirsty cyclists, their friends, and sightseers would consume 10 to 15 kegs, each keg holding 15.5 gallons of beer. “Maybe a bit less than last year,” he shrugged, glancing at the clouds overhead.

OSP troopers from the Tillamook work site office are continuing the investigation. Trooper Sarah Reding is the lead investigator. Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office, Nestucca Fire & Rescue, and ODOT assisted OSP at the scene. The highway was closed for about five hours. This fatal crash occurred on the first day of the “Click It or Ticket” campaign that runs through June 2. OSP and ODOT remind everyone that the proper use of safety restraints is the single most effective way to protect vehicle occupants involved in a crash from injury or death. According to ODOT, even though Oregon now has the second highest safety belt use among U.S. states, 49 people last year lost their lives in crashes where they were in a pickup and were not wearing a safety belt.

At the top of their class

THS Valedictorian and Salutatorian talk about their plans after high school By Sayde Moser


MITCH BAERTLEIN Mitch Baertlein is the 2013 Tillamook High School Valedictorian, but he said finishing at the top of his class wasn’t something he set out to do when he got to high school. “I just wanted good Mitch Baertlein grades and tried the hardest I could,” he said. “I signed up for all the honors classes so that helped.” Baertlein will be enrolling at OSU’s Honors College in the fall to study electrical engineering, an interest he gained during an apprenticeship with Hampton Lumber last October. Looking back on his high school experience he said some of the highlights were getting an A in AP Calculus and earning a 4 on the AP English test. “That was definitely an accomplishment,” he said. Baertlein also ran cross country and played baseball all four years. During high school he had the opportunity to go to El Salvador on a mission trip and said he’d like to continue to travel in college and afterwards. He urged all highschoolers to try and get out of the country at least once, but not to forget to focus on academics. “Sign up for as many challenging classes as you can,” he said. “Specifically the honors classes and try out some college classes, if you can… You can’t get very far if you don’t force yourself and try your hardest every single day. Other people can’t do it for you.”

Cedar Creek gets SMART

by Melonie Ferguson For the Headlight Herald

Fourteen members of Nestucca High School’s Honor Society partnered with fourteen Cedar Creek Childcare students this spring to bring the Start Making a Reader Today (SMART) reading program to south Tillamook County’s youngest learners. Cedar Creek Director Diane Wilkinson talked to The Headlight Herald. “In preparation for their transition to Kindergarten, we introduce [Cedar Creek preschoolers] to programs such as SMART and Art Literacy so they are familiar with those activities when they get to the ‘big school,’” she said. “On top of that, we are boosting their literacy and art skills, while utilizing wonderful community partners.” She gratefully acknowledged Nestucca High School participation, singling out Cara Elder, the Honor Society Advisor, for praise. Under Elder’s leadership, the Honor Society not only brought SMART to Cedar Creek, but gave away more than 150 books collected in a book drive that will be donated to the school, and they’re donating $500 towards bookshelves to hold them.

Nestucca High School Honor Society members participating in the project included: Courtney Ahn, Hailey Albin, Monica Chatelain, Virginia Garcia, Alisa Green, Kaelin McKillip, Drace Moeller, Daniella Moreno, Jeremy Nix, Maria Perez, Jessica Ponce, Kycie Richwine, Chelsea Wallace, and Jackie Wilkinson.

It is known that a major earthquake/tsunami lurks in our future. On a lesser scale but no less important are extended periods of isolation due to massive storms with flooding and extended power outages, such as those that occurred in 1963, 1996 and 2007. “Map Your Neighborhood” is a grass roots, neighbor-helping-neighbor, approach to disaster survival.

Memorial Day Opening of Dickie’s Second Hand Store The story of Dickie’s Second Hand Store from owner, Richard Stanfill:

“Dickie’s developed when the Myrtlewood and Table Factory relocated to Garibaldi. The conversion to a summer traffic second hand store has been successful. Folks are looking for antiques, old stuff, home needs, new and used, and Patty and I provide over 5,000 square feet of the the best. Customers enjoy our large book selection, hardware, tools, kitchen, glassware, furniture and things drifted in from the beaches. It is definitely a ‘need to visit’ stop for travelers and locals alike. And don’t forget: we buy, sell and trade.

175 3rd Street, Tillamook. 503-842-2901

Is it time to talk about parking again? By Joe Wrabek

Those of us who work in downtown Tillamook have had a nice reprieve these past couple of months; those Parking District regulations, which folks have described variously as “annoying,” “idiotic” and a few things less printable, haven’t been enforced because there’s been no one to enforce them. Thanks to budget problems, Tillamook’s “parking management,” otherwise known as “the meter maid,” had her hours cut, and cut, and cut, finally to zero. And with the onset of first rainy and then cold weather, people – including me – have been parking closer to where they work, because they can. I feel guilty about it, though. I feel this unnatural kinship with Jesse James every time I don’t park blocks away from the paper and shiver (or drip) my way to work. I do appreciate the relief – but it bothers my Inner Conservative that we’re not going about this the right way. If a law is bad – and “bad” is one of the nicer things I’ve heard said about downtown Tillamook’s parking rules – you should change the law, not ignore it or not enforce it. Can we take care of that now? I’d like to present a few ideas for discussion. I can’t take credit for any of them; they all came from other people who work, live, and/or shop downtown, and have been thinking about the problem because they, too, confront it every day. The biggest need for customer parking is seasonal. We get a fair amount of tourists in the summer, and we’d like to get more of them, and we do want them to have places to park right downtown so they can shop. But come fall, those tourists stop coming, and it’s just us local folks around, and if we still can’t park downtown, the place starts to look like a ghost town – and it’s been noted before that ghost towns aren’t attractive places to shop. Could we make the parking prohibitions seasonal? What if we said that between (say) mid-October and (say) mid-April, the 2-hour parking limits and the prohibition of employee, employer, and resident parking didn’t apply? Or even better, didn’t apply just in those three big parking lots? (Keep a twohour limit on the streets, in other words.) Come spring, the parking spaces would go back to being for customers only again, and we could go back to trekking longer distances to work – but we’d have nicer weather to do it in. Could we live with that? I sure could. Make that two-hour limit longer, too. A lot of shoppers have complained they can’t get done everything they

About Us

want to do downtown in two hours. Let’s give them more time, then. Isn’t spending time downtown, eating a meal, and visiting a bunch of different businesses, all while leaving the car or truck parked in the same place, behavior we want to encourage? One of the biggest impediments to use of the downtown parking lots (one of which is big, and new) is the absence of signs telling people the lots are there (and just a block off Main Avenue, too). And the biggest impediment to getting those directional signs is the Oregon Dept. of Transportation’s refusal to allow such things on “their” highways. (That attitude, too, has been characterized as annoying, idiotic, and less printable things.) The owners of the Rodeo Steakhouse may have shown us a solution. We can paint murals on some downtown buildings in strategic locations, saying things like “Free Parking – Turn Right (or Left) – One Block,” and ODOT wouldn’t have anything to say about it. Yes, it’d take an amendment to the city’s zoning ordinance – but the city was talking about doing that anyway, weren’t they, after the Rodeo Sign Incident? Finally – and I don’t have a good suggestion for this – we need some way to let that person who works or lives downtown to be a customer, too, and not risk an expensive ticket in the process. A card they could stick on the dashboard that said “I’m shopping – don’t mess with me,” perhaps (but less outrageously worded, of course). We want to encourage local shopping, don’t we? The out-of-town traffic is nice, but it’s the year-round local patronage that allows our local businesses to keep their doors open. And the fines? I wouldn’t worry about the fines: if you have rules that make sense, that are possible – and easy – to follow, you’re unlikely to have an enforcement problem. Like the Inner Conservative keeps repeating, change the law. (One of my favorite left-wingers tells me her Inner Liberal has been saying the same thing: change the law.) I’d urge doing something right away. One of the things I’ve learned as a news reporter is to do things right away, when the opportunity happens, rather than waiting until later; you can’t guarantee you’ll have time later (and you often can’t guarantee when “later” is going to be). Right now, it’s winter, and things are slow: we’ve got time to wrestle with these issues. (In fact, a little heated discussion might warm things up.) Later, we’ll be busy (at least, we hope we’ll be busy). Ready to talk to your city council?

Readers’ Open Forum Looking for photos of the old Hemlock Store What do you think of when you hear Hemlock Store? Getting gas and a cool drink? Visiting with the owners and meeting up with a few neighbors? Maybe you were with the fire department when they did a controlled burn and the place went up in flames. My first memory was traveling from Portland to fish at the coast with my uncle as a young boy. We would pull in for a pit stop, gas and a snack before heading back. There was always an exchange of fishing stories with the big one that got away. If you have any pictures or stories that involve the Hemlock Store I could use your help. I purchased the property from the Alexander’s in December 1980. At that time I could drive my 5th wheel unto the pad of the old store and for a $50 a year permit, I could keep my rig there year round. Since then ODOT has built up an embankment and blocked access to the property. I am 82 now while there are still a few of us around, I want ODOT to put an access back in so that we can clean up the property and use the store pad site again. After two years of an ODOT run around, they want more photos to prove the property had direct access onto Hwy 101. I even got a copy of the burn order

when the fire department burnt it down. The fire department had to drive up to the store to do a controlled burn of it. Still they want more proof. So pictures will be the best. I also want the stories not only for this access rebuild but to hand down to my grandchildren as the property will one day be theirs. If you can help please email me at mredwing@ or call 503309-3111.

Bring back our fleet Garibaldi trawl fishermen are our unsung heroes. They bring product in from the deep blue Pacific to make a significant difference in the economy of Tillamook County. They are more conspicuous by their absence. In past years they kept jobs, tourism and many businesses booming after the lumber mills shut down. Then came a time when they had to stand outside their homeport, waiting with tons of perishable products on board. This happened too many times and made it difficult for the fish plants. Garibaldi fishery vessels got the red carpet treatment in other ports. Our loss was their gain. Many travel boats have the capability with various types of fishing permits to keep the economic wheels going around almost all year round. Tourists love the activity and atmosphere of the Garibaldi

Legislative Update Representative Deborah Boone This week the Office of Economic Analysis released the latest Economic and Revenue Forecast. This report contained some good news, as the state’s economy continues to improve and more Oregonians are getting back to work.  Economic analysts project that there is $115 million more in tax collections than expected.  And the forecast for the next budget cycle indicates a $157 million increase.  This totals a $272 million increase, which is a tremendous change from the years of recessioncaused budget reductions. All indications show that Oregon’s economy has turned the corner and the economists expect slow but steady growth during the coming biennium. Two major areas have increased the general fund forecast by one percent.  First there were big year-end tax collections, and secondly Oregon employment continues to increase.  Labor trends show increases in the housing industry, which include housing starts and demand for wood products used as building materials.  Also

cutbacks in state and local government jobs are slowing.   These trends are good for rural areas like House District 32 where there is a less diverse economic base. Because Oregon’s business climate is improving, the upswing in corporate tax collections is likely to trigger a corporate kicker payment, which would refund $20.3 million to corporations.  Voters approved Measure 85 last November, reforming the corporate kicker to shift the excess revenue to fund public schools, but these changes will not be in effect until the 2013-15 biennium. After the recessioncaused budget crisis where lawmakers were forced to make $4 billion in cuts to critical services, the legislature is now in a position to make some reinvestments in education, health care, and other important services.  We took the necessary steps to help Oregon find a path out of the worst national recession in generations, and now find that sentiments of consumers, business and economic forecasters has become more confident in continued positive growth. While overall employment numbers are improv-

Due to circumstance beyond their control, local fishermen drive up and down Hwy 101 to work on boats at the shipyards, go out to sea, ‘offboard,’ get back in their pick-ups and drive home. Repeat. Repeat. One old man of the sea said, “for the time it takes after leaving the boat to drive home to Garibaldi, I could have cut the lawn and made a steak and seafood dinner complete with flowers and candles for the Tillamook County tax assessor.” Linda Vandecouvering Garibaldi, Ore.

Therapy animals are not service animals The Letter to the Editor from Quinn Pender regarding her therapy chicken was delightful and entertaining reading. I found myself rechecking to make certain I had not picked up an April 1 paper by mistake. But while entertaining, it did give the impression that therapy animals - chickens or otherwise - may be allowed in grocery stores or perhaps other food establishments. Oregon law prohibits all animals, except for service animals, in grocery stores, restaurants, and other food establishments. A service animal is a dog or minia-

ing, there are still more than 60 thousand Oregonians who have been unemployed for at least six months. As the economy began improving, most of the jobs creation occurred in the Portland Metro area, but now labor trends are showing better numbers around the state. The job growth remains slow and steady, and the economists indicate we need to make the types of business investments that will lead to new job creation in all parts of the state. Oregon’s constitution requires that the Legislative Assembly develop a balanced budget, and given the revenue forecast, we now have the information needed to finalize the

ture horse that is individually trained to do work or perform specific tasks for people with disabilities. Therapy animals, comfort animals, companion animals and other classifications of pets may be important in the lives of their owners, but they are not service animals as defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act, and they are banned from food establishments by law. Proprietors of these establishments face stiff penalties if they allow entry to these animals. All types of animals, other than service animals, may also be banned from other private businesses open to the public (including libraries, retail stores, etc.), with the possible exception of certain classifications of federally subsidized housing.

An out-of-touch goverment In order to renew my driver’s license last November I had to provide an official, embossed copy of my birth certificate. I had to prove I was a citizen and the burden was on me to find the documents. The Oregon legislature has now decided that you no longer have to be a citizen to get a driver’s license. Is it any wonder that many in this state feel the government is out of touch with reality? David Dittmer Tillamook, Ore.

10th annual “Down by the Riverside” teaches science out of doors By Joe Wrabek

Tillamook’s Hoquarton Slough was crowded with kids Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday last week. They were there for “Down by the Riverside,” the annual outdoor seminar with activities and games put on by the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership. This is the 10th year for the event, which brings in third-graders from all three school districts in the county, plus the small, independent Neskowin Valley School in south Tillamook County. The three days – May 14, 15 and 16 – at Ho-

quarton Slough were for the Tillamook and South County kids; kids from NeahKah-Nie School District’s Garibaldi Grade School and Nehalem Elementary will go to Alder Creek Farm, just outside Nehalem, on Wednesday, May 22, where the program will be repeated. The third-graders, pretending to be fish and birds, ran races through a changing habitat as they mimicked the creatures’ life cycles and searched for places to spawn or nest; they got to inspect – and feel – animal skins and skulls brought by Clair Thomas and they made paintings from collected ferns and plants. A hit was Claudine

Rehn’s “Build a Bug” seminar, in which kids got to dress up a classmate as a water bug, adding gills, exoskeleton, antennae, compound eyes and other features, while discussing how the adaptations enabled bugs to survive in the watery environment of the slough. “Build a Bug” is modeled on the popular “Build a Bird” activity at the Clean Water Festival, Rehn told the Headlight Herald. “Down by the Riverside,” for the third-graders, is a precursor to the Clean Water Festival held in April for fourthgraders, also put on by the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership.

He praised Skanska, the general contractor for bringing the project in on time, and Clark Kjos, the architect, for designing a beautiful and functional space. Davy also thanked the City of Tillamook and Tillamook County for their help in bringing the project to fruition, as well as hospital staff for their efforts and support. Davy used the occasion of the clinic dedication to unveil a surprise: the hospital is changing its name from Tillamook County General Hospital to Adventist Health Tillamook Regional Medical Center. The name change is the result of a survey contracted by the hospital to ascertain how Tillamook County residents feel about the hospital’s name. A survey of 300 Tillamook County residents administered by an independent organization uncovered a theme of dislike for the hospital’s name. Specifically, people disliked the historical connotation of “county” hospital, as the hospital that

poor people go to; they also disliked the word “general” in the name, associating general with mediocre, or not specializing in anything. With those results in hand the hospital engaged six focus groups representing a broad spectrum of the community to look at renaming the hospital. The recommendations from those groups ultimately coalesced into the hospital’s new name: Adventist Health Tillamook Regional Medical Center. The name change will be official June 3. The Tillamook Medical Plaza will be open for patients May 28. The facility is bright and gracious with a nice flow to the space, a wall of windows and a central atrium with sky lights. It is handicapped accessible via a covered walkway with wide doors on the north side of the building; above those doors is a sign that reads “The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.” Psalm 121:8

CYCLING: Tents in the cape parking area offered massages, water, free coffee, and a changing tent, among other services. A sign announced showers available behind the nearby Inn. The AAA auto club was promoting its program of roadside assistance to cyclists, newly available in Oregon, Idaho, and Washington.

As many others would tell the Headlight Herald, they too remain fans of this event and intend to do it again next year. This intense annual event momentarily quadruples the population of Pacific City. Sheriff’s deputies were out in force, directing traffic.

Working families from Tillamook County rallied at the courthouse May 15.

Rally for economic fairness for working families By Mary Faith Bell

A rally for economic fairness on the Tillamook County Courthouse steps May 15 drew a crowd of about 40 people who were protesting the economic decline of working class Americans. Parallels were drawn between the Great Depression of the 1930’s and the current depression in which untold numbers of Americans have lost their jobs, homes, health insurance,

savings, and hope for a secure retirement. Protestors decried out of control costs for health care and higher education, while wages are frozen and jobs are being cut. A petition was passed that reads: “As members of Tillamook County, we believe that workers and working families have repeatedly contributed to problem solving many of the economic challenges that local and state decision makers have asked for. For many years now, workers have

accepted real pay cuts, experienced significant increases in health care costs while design plans erode, we have watched our education funding decrease, all while the real and urgent need for public assistance has soared for so many families. The working families of Tillamook are financially exhausted and ask you to hear that things must change.” The petition called for big banks to repay what they have stolen from working families;

New city hall on track for Nehalem By Pat Edley

For the Headlight Herald

Plans for Nehalem’s new city hall are beginning to come together. At its May 13 meeting, council members looked at provided samples and pictures of tile and other components to be used in the new structure to make their preferences known. This followed a special meeting of the city council on May 6, with Toni Pinkston representing Pacific Mobile - the firm contracted to build the 2,446 square-foot modular structure. According to Pinkston, the new structure will be completed by September 30. Mayor Shirley Kalkhoven noted that decisions regarding construction of the new city hall should be made promptly, stating, “we would like to advertise this as soon as possible.” The new building’s exterior will be finished with

Hardie-Plank lap siding, along with a metal roof. Total cost of the project will be under $600,000, according to Kalkhoven, and the city will have the money in hand to pay for the project with no expense to taxpayers. Still to be done is foundation work, rough plumbing, electrical and the installation of sidewalks before crews hoist the finished modular components in place for final assembly in September. In other business, Public Works Director Don Davidson asked the council for advice on problems with trees near the city’s reservoir. He explained that some alders and a few spruce were getting very large, and could easily damage the reservoir fence if they fall or are blown down. He noted that not all of the suspect trees are on city watershed property, but said there is an agreement with the property owner allowing the city to maintain trees as

needed. For now, Davidson said he would do some pruning – not wishing to cut the trees down, which could jeopardize the slope. Councilor Jim Welsh asked Davidson about the condition of creeks in the watershed area, saying since it had been a dry winter he had noted some creeks that appeared to be very low already. Davidson said creeks in the watershed were not low as of yet, but added, “if we get much dry weather now, SUBSCRIBE TODAY! The Oregonian Daily and Sunday Delivery

Nestucca Fire considers new public input policy By Melonie Ferguson For the Headlight Herald

Patron input at Fire Board meetings may be limited to written questions or comments if a new policy being considered by the Nestucca Rural Fire Protection is adopted at the June 12 board meeting. Board President Ken Crowe interjected the proposed requirement during the audience participation portion of the meeting on May 8. Donald Lettenmaier had been allowed three minutes to speak; he had questions regarding the District’s lack of a Water Rescue Team. “Don,” Ken Crow interrupted, “we’re going to ask you to put your questions for the Board in writing from now on.” Dr. John Emerson opined that such action would require a motion and a vote of the governing body. “I’d be opposed,” he announced. Stan Martella suggested, and the Board agreed, that the issue be tabled until the June 12 meeting in order for members to have “a chance to think about it.” Jim Oeder, Division Chief Training, announced that a practice burn would start at 7 p.m. on Mondays, May 13 and 20 at a donated residence just south of Whalen Island on Sandlake Road. After a series of practice drills within the structure, the house will be burned down. “Everybody will be there. All personnel will have a role in the jobs,” he predicted.

He also reported that in light of Jim Straessle stepping down as Safety Officer, staff have invested time and effort in clarifying a list of Safety Officer duties that go “beyond just the fire scene,” in anticipation of another volunteer accepting the role. Action items for the evening included Board approval of a total adopted budget for 3013-14 of $1,272,650. The figure will be collected by way of property taxes within the District levied at .9176 per thousand dollars of assessed value. The Budget Committee included Christi Clark, Michelle Hughes, Ann Price, Gloria Scullin, and Craig Wenrick. Fire Chief Kris Weiland served as Budget Officer. The Board also decided to purchase a fire truck to be shipped from Texas. Mickey Hays traveled there the week of April 15 to inspect the apparatus: a 1999 model with an asking price of $100,000. He prepared a page-long report on his inspection, noting the rig’s only flaw as “taking an extra crank to start,” which resulted in a favorable engine inspection by a third party. A $90,000 purchase price was approved. It will replace a truck in the present fleet dating back to the 1970s. The Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District Board will meet at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 12 at the Station in Hebo. Monthly meetings will continue at the Hebo Station through October.

County commissioners hear from mayors, CART’M By Joe Wrabek

When Tillamook County commissioners held their May 15 meeting in Manzanita – the last evening meeting until fall – they got reports from the mayors of the “tri-cities” (Manzanita, Nehalem and Wheeler) and from CART’M, North County’s unique recycling center-cum-thrift store-cumtransfer station. “We have our own Third Street project,” Manzanita Mayor Garry Bullard told commissioners – “but ours is on budget and on time.” A Visitors’ Center is being built, too, the funding coming from the recent increase in the city’s transient room taxes. (Manzanita raised their TRT to 10 percent.) Nehalem will be recieving bids for their new city hall June 19, Nehalem mayor Shirley Kalkhoven reported, which will be built entirely with their own money from sales of the city’s timberland. The new facility is expected to be complete by Sept. 30, Kalkhoven said. Wheeler Mayor Stevie Burden thanked commission-

ers for their letter of support for Wheeler’s acquisition of the 6-1/2 acre “upland” next to Botts Marsh for a park. The next step, she said, is Botts Marsh itself. “The owners have authorized [City Manager] Jeff Aprati and I to find someone to purchase the marsh and put it in conservancy,” she said. The marsh and park, at the north end of Wheeler, “will be right where the train and trail comes out of the Salmonberry Corridor.” Wheeler will also be celebrating its centennial this June, Burden said – having determined the city was actually incorporated in 1913, not 1914. “I hope we’ll have a big end-of-the-year event and dedicate a park.” Jan Hamilton and Linda Koslowski from CART’M were at the meeting to publicize the organization’s new mission – “leading the community to zero waste.” “We want to expand our services,” Hamilton said. CART’M – the name stands for “Conservation Action Resource Team of Manzanita – acquired the franchise for North County’s transfer station in 1997 and

moved its recycling center there. It has grown into a well-run business, Koswolski said, and the relations with the artistic community – “taking trash and turning it into art” – has made CART’M a tourist destination. “It’s a place you can take visitors to,” she said. Today, two-thirds of what comes to CART’M’s facility on the outskirts of Manzanita gets recycled – the reverse of what happens nationwide, where two-thirds goes to landfills. “We did a dumpster audit,” Hamilton said. “We went through every piece of trash in a 40-yard dumpster. We needed to know what people were throwing away.” Most of what was in their dumpster – 92 percent – was actually trash, she said. (That’s also the reverse of what happens nationwide, where 96 percent of what’s in the landfill is recyclable.) The “dumpster audit” suggested additional recycling opportunities. Seventy-eight percent of the “trash” was construction debris, Hamilton said. Half of the remainder was food waste and 10 percent was pet waste.

As a consequence, CART’M is going to make a determined effort to recycle construction debris. “We will try to repurpose at least 50 percent of construction and demolition waste,” Hamilton said. For the food and pet waste, “the easiest way is for people to compost it at home.” CART’M will have a “composting demo garden” and will sell composting bins. Thursday, May 23, CART’M will open their new “Re-Findery” facility in preparation for the past couple of weeks. “It will be a whole different experience,” Koswolski said. “We will become even more of a tourist destination.” “If anyone can get down to zero waste, Manzanita can do it,” County Commissioner Bill Baertlein noted. At their May 15 meeting, county commissioners also re-appointed Shirley Kalkhoven, Ken Crowe, Connie Green, Rick Kneeland and Paul Newman to the Futures Council, and made one new appointment to the Futures Council – Gloria Scullin from South County.

Volunteer mediators to be honored May 31

Past, present, and future volunteers invited to lunch Julius Jortner

For the Headlight Herald

Justice of the Peace Joel Stevens will host a luncheon on May 31 at noon at the courthouse in the Justice courtroom to honor those who’ve served as volunteer mediators in the county. Volunteer mediators, past and present, are invited. Also invited are any adults interested in becoming volunteer mediators, or who wish to support the mediation program in other ways. Please RSVP to Marie Heimburg, at 503-842-3417 or at WHAT IS MEDIATION? Essentially, mediation is a process by which a neutral person, the mediator, helps people in conflict create an agreement that resolves the issues for both parties. The mediator has no power to impose a solution. Instead, the mediator tries to get the parties to talk constructively and to work together to craft a solution each can live with. If desired by the parties, the mediator helps put that solution into a written agreement. Of course, not all mediations reach an agreement. The matter may be continued in other ways, perhaps (as in small-claims cases) by going to trial. Mediation is voluntary and confidential. Either party may opt out at any time. Neither party, nor the mediator, may reveal to others what transpired in mediation, unless such revelation is agreed to by all parties. Neal Lemery, Justice of the Peace until he retired a few months ago, introduced mediation into Tillamook’s small-claims process back in 2001, the first year of his tenure. He acknowledges the creative involvement and hard work of others to make mediation a reality here, including contributions by the late Artis van Rassel, who founded Conflict Solutions for Tillamook County. Conflict Solutions trains mediators, coordinates mediations, and assigns volunteer mediators to each case. Conflict Solutions reports to the county’s board of commissioners; it relies on grants from state and private entities for financial support. Heimburg is the group’s current administrator. Each mediator has undergone training in accordance with Oregon statutes. Basic mediation training teaches the importance of listening carefully and respectfully, to look past stated positions towards underlying interests. Would-be mediators learn several arts, including how to reframe statements made by one party into expressions more likely to be heard clearly by the other party; to ask questions in a way likely to elicit constructive responses; and to establish an environment conducive to the parties working together towards a solution.

These are valuable skills for life in general, in addition to being tools in mediation. A recently trained mediator spoke for many trainees when he said, “I wish I’d learned all this long ago. They should teach it in high school.” In fact, there has been some movement to introduce mediation concepts to public-school students, via a “peer mediation” program that trains student volunteers to mediate disputes among other students. Look for more about peer mediation in a follow-up article. “I like the role of mediation in small-claims cases. Mediation is very beneficial to the parties and to the community,” Judge Stevens said. “I’ve seen first hand how it can resolve disputes - and even when no formal agreement results, I don’t think mediation ever is a waste of time.” Lemery says, “Mediation helps people focus on their goals and a possible solution. The process reduces their emotional anxiety and directs them into problem solving.” He would encourage litigants to try mediation because “we live in a small community and we interact in many ways. Today’s lawsuit may not be as important to you as your relationship down the road years from now.” In addition to smallclaims, volunteers also mediate school truancies and neighbor-to-neighbor disputes. Under the encouragement of Judge Stevens, mediation is now part of truancy resolution in central Tillamook County School District #9. He is working to soon expand truancy mediations to schools in north and south county. Neighbor-to-neighbor mediations also are administered by Conflict Solutions. The county Sheriff’s Office supports mediation as a way of resolving conflicts between neighbors before a situation escalates to becoming a judicial matter. Jana McCandless, undersheriff, says non-criminal situations that result in calls to the sheriff “range from barking dogs to a very serious, sometimes volatile, property dispute.” She advises residents to approach Conflict Solutions to try mediation in “a difficult situation that is not criminal in nature.” Residents may contact Conflict Solutions directly to request mediation; it is not always necessary to first file a court case or to approach law enforcement. The next mediation training course will occur later this year, dates to be determined. If you are interested in the training, or if you have a dispute you think might be resolved by mediation, get in touch with Marie Heimburg at Conflict Solutions, 503.842.3417. Julius Jortner has been a volunteer mediator in Tillamook County since 2008.

Mook Track steps up at Districts





Headlight Herald Sports

Headlight Herald Sports

It’s been a while since the Nestucca Bobcats boys’ track team embraced a District Title. This once yearly opportunity for the Cats has eluded the team for a decade. (NHS girl’s team last won a title in 2009.) That drought was ended on May 17-18 at the NWL District Championships at Portland Christian High School as the Cats surprised everyone by claiming the title. "We may have had better district meets team wise, but I certainly don't remember them," said Bobcat head coach John Elder. "People were buzzing all day about how well our kids were competing.” Freshman Raymond Jackson Cruz got things started with a huge 20-second PR in the 3000 for seventh, and two unexpected team points. (He followed that the next day with another PR in the 1500 and another seventh place finish.) As word of Cruz's huge effort circulated among the Bobcat team, Drace Moeller was getting ready in the shot ring to launch a District Meet Record 4810.5 throw for first place and 10 team points. Moeller’s throwing buddy, Brett Elder, captured second in the event with a 43-3.5 grabbing a trip to state. Wyatt Peterson placed seventh and the Cats had 20 team points in one event. "We figured to score big in the field events and the first day guys certainly didn't disappoint," Elder said with excitement. The pole vaulters chipped in with a second place finish from Austin McKillip with a vault of 10-6.0 earning him a trip to state. Nestucca also got a third place in the vault from freshman Ryan Leslie and a fourth place from Nate Parks. At the long jump Guillermo Pimienta popped a huge 19-3 jump (a 1.5 foot PR for 4th) and the Bobcats suddenly looked like title contenders. Day two opened with freshman Elder capturing first place in the discus, (a new meet record 143-0, breaking the old record of former Bobcat Clem Hurliman). His discus teammates provided fireworks of their own as Moeller threw an eight-foot PR of 118-6 to earn fifth place and Wyatt Peterson threw a 14-foot PR at 124-7 for third place. It was as if each Bobcat’s goal was to one-up their teammate. While the Cats’ crowd was enjoying the show at the discus, Junior Austin McKillip was dominating the triple jump with a PR 40-9.5 jump, so far ahead that he didn't have to take any of his finals jumps. Sophomore Pimienta surprised everyone with his district champion performance in the high jump (5-8 PR jump, with moral support from last year's State Champ in the event, Nick Ahn). Lucas Leslie added a surprising 6th place 5-foot jump to the high jump. The Cats weren't done in the field, as Elder completed the trifecta by qualifying for State in his third event by winning the javelin. Moeller and McKillip finished 3rd and 4th respectively. With action in the field over, it was up to the track performers to pick up points to ensure the Bobcat win. This they proceeded to do as Brady Stitt (PR for 5th 400 meters), Nate Parks (7th in the 800 in his first try), Wyatt McKillip (unlooked for 3rd in the High Hurdles, 18.66 PR #7 NHS Frosh ever), Gage McCall (6th in both High Hurdles and 300 H) and

both relays scored enough for the 151-143 squeaker over Portland Christian. "Everyone contributed, it was a true team win. We always preach that the 5th, 6th and 7th places are just as important as the higher ones, and that's how it worked out here.” Coach Elder was selected NWL Boys Coach of the Year, which he attributed to "great, hard working athletes, and dedicated longtime coaches like Iona Wakefield and Gordon Whitehead, volunteer coach Matt Shepherd, and help from Jacob Copely (triple jump) and Terry Bradfield (years of experience in the throws, very valuable to us). While the boys were on a roll, the girl’s efforts were just as impressive. With fewer numbers, the Lady Cats couldn't win the meet, but proceeded to qualify four for state and finish 4th as a team. The distance duo of Courtney Ahn and Rebecca Whittles continued their recent good performances with an exciting two-woman race for second in the 3000 (Ahn eeking out a return to the state meet with a season best 11:56.29). Whittles returned the favor the next day as she edged out Ahn for 3rd in the 1500 with a PR 5:28.12. Monica Chatelain, fresh off the NHS softball playoff win on Thursday to get to the state playoffs, earned her individual trip by winning the javelin in dramatic fashion on last throw to capture first. Trisha Hopkins joined her teammates by qualifying in the shot put with a second place throw of 29-1. The final piece of the State meet puzzle was solved when Kycie Richwine, who stormed to the front of the 100m hurdles to win and a PR 16.86, which was the No. 2 sophomore’s best time ever at NHS. "Kycie's performance might be the most amazing of all,” Elder said. “With the tough week she had, to run a lifetime best and win a District Title. Not many could do that!" Richwine followed up her high hurdles victory by qualifying for state with a second place in the 300 hurdles with a PR 51.39. Teammate Erin Winesburg had a great day, placing in both hurdles events with PRs as well. All in all, eight Bobcats in 12 different events will venture to Hayward Field at the University of Oregon to compete at the state meet on May 23-24 and hopefully bring home medals.

Pirate Track The Pirate track team has had very low numbers all season long keeping them out of contention as a team at almost every single meet. But what the Pirates do have is a few individuals with a chance at the state meet berth if they can pull together their best times at the right time. The district meet was the right time and a few of them managed to do just that, especially the youngsters. The Pirates got great finishes to the season from their best two female throwers in Kristina Burdick and Tasha Mabe-DeRoast. The two finished third and fourth in the discus, while Nathan Imholt finished in third on the boy’s side. They also got a good performance from Alejandro Quintana who took fourth in the 300m hurdles, an event he’d never ran until about mid way though this season. Unfortunately, none of those efforts earned a trip to state, but there

were two kids who did, and they know each other pretty well. The brother and sister combo of junior Logan Romig and his sister, freshman Annie Romig were the only two Pirates to make state. Logan did it by taking second in the 1500m and Annie did it taking second place in the 400m. “Those two are a father’s dream come true,” said Annie and Logan’s dad Rich Romig. “They work hard and they’re reaping the rewards of that hard work. Plus they’re showing their old man a good time.” Besides Annie’s solid performance, other Pirates Freshman stepped up at Districts. Jenna Henderson took fifth place in the 100m hurdles, Erin Savage took third in the 800m, Julian Croman took third in the 800m and Callie Swanson took fourth in the 100m. “We had a really strong showing from our freshman,” said Pirates track coach Cynthia Grelck. “I was pleased with our overall efforts and with no seniors on the team and so many good freshmen, I’m already looking forward to next year. The Romig siblings will compete at U of O on May 23-24.


Siblings Annie and Logan Romig both earned siver metals at Districts and were the only two Pirates to qualify for the State meet.

From top to bottom, the Bobcats peaked at just the right time


From left, Austin McKillip, Drace Moeller, Monica Chatelain and Brett Elder were all top performers for the Nestucca Bobcats at the 2A District track meet at Portland Christian High School.

The track kids from Tillamook have spent their entire season working and sweating through their pain in hopes of putting together the best performances of their lives at the district meet. This year that meet was on May 16-17 at Seaside High School and many of Tillamook’s athletes did exactly what they’d hoped to do, they rose to the occasion. When anyone who knows Tillamook track thinks about rising above the rest of the field, there’s one Cheesemaker that comes to mind who’s been very literally rising above the rest all season long. Nate McRae continued his dominance in the high jump by winning the district championship in the event, but he wasn’t done yet. McRae also went on to win the high hurdles. And if that wasn’t enough, he won the triple jump too, despite seldom competing in it. But, according to Mook track coach Mark Dean, McRae won’t be competing in the triple jump at state. “It’s great to have someone that’s been so consistent all year long like Nate, but the triple jump aggavates his foot,” Dean explains. “It’s just not worth it to have him triple jump at state. We know his best chance to place is in the high jump or hurdles and sometimes you have to see what opportunities are best and go with those.” McRae wasn’t the only Cheesemaker taking home gold at districts. Markus Pullen also grabbed a district title. Pullen won in the 400m with a 50.42, which was the third fastest time in THS story. Aaron Josi took the title in the 1500m with the second fastest time of his life the despite the 1500m not being his best event. In the process he pulled teammate Hector Rojo to the top as well. Rojo turned in a great performance to finish in second behind Josi. Josi’s best event is the 3000m and he held true to that, placing second in the event. “Hector and Aaron actually had an outstanding days,” Dean said. “Besides earning a state spot in the 1500m, Hector ran a great race in the 3000m and placed third too.” Also making it to state as an individual was Myron Moore taking second in the 200m. Tillamook’s relay teams have been strong all season, but have narrowly finished in second to Scappoose most the season. Districts wasn’t any different with the 4x100 team of Wesley Stirk, Cole Berge, Myron Moore and Markus Pullen turned in a second place finish despite a slower than usual handoff. Tillamook’s 4x400 team made up of Philippe Josi, Paulo Valez, Myron Moore and Markus Pullen also finished second to Scappoose, but only by four-tenths of a second with a time that was the second best in THS history. The only time faster was in the 70’s and that team won a state title. Tillamook boys still have one more week to try and break that record and clip Scappoose.

Lady Cats beat Vernonia, headed to State Playoffs BY JOSIAH DARR Headlight Herald Sports


Continued from Page A12

Tillamook’s girls team’s youth made it tough for them to compete for a state spot, but Kestrel Bailey did turn the ninth best 1500m time and the sixth best 1500m times in school history. Overall Tillamook is sending boys to State in the high jump, high hurdles, 400m, 200m, 3000m, 1500m, 4x100 and 4x400 and Coach Dean is

pleased to see his boys team compete so well at the perfect time. “This is the best Tillamook boys team we’ve had in 10 years or so and the kids have really gotten better all year,” Dean said. “Our goal was to get in the top three as a team at districts and we took second to Scappoose. I wish we’d had more girls qualify, but we’re young on

the girls side. “At this point I’m just excited to see these kids at state and hopefully watch them leave with medals around their necks.” Tillamook will take their qualifiers to Hayward Field at University of Oregon on May 24-25 for the State meet.

On Saturday, June 1st the Knucklehead Fight Promotions will journey to Tillamook, Oregon for its first-ever event in the area as a fundraiser for the Tillamook Wrestling Program. The “Jordan vs. Lasley” mixed martial arts (MMA) event will feature four championship fights and one women’s superfight, all held in the 25foot steel cageat the Tillamook County Fair Grounds. Alex Jordan, a 185-pound middle weight fighter originally from Garibaldi, Oregon will face Lasley who is known as a power hitter. John “The Rock” Garcia of Tillamook is vying for the 170pound belt at the fights in Tillamook. Laurie Rieger will make her debut as a cage fighter and take on hard hitting Amy Croghan from La Grande.

Additional Tillamook fighters: At the Cage Fights in Tillamook event on June 1 you will see the following fighters from Tillamook face fighters from all over the region: Adam Smith, Theodore Stellflug, Jeremy Coon, Dylan Hayes, Tadd Lovely, and many more. The promotion is dedicated to the success of regional wrestling programs. Wrestling is one of the most historic sports in the world with long roots in the Olympics; locally its impact on youth is great. Wrestling is a safe venue to learn control, skills and discipline. It also feeds professional sports like Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) where young men and women from the region are doing very well with professional careers on a local and

international level, due to the support of wrestling programs at a young age. Lately, wrestling programs, along with other sports program have taken dramatic financial hits in the downturned economy. Programs throughout the state are suffering and the Knucklehead Fight Promotions is doing something about it. They hope to raise as much as $10,000 for the Tillamook wrestling program this year’s event on June 1st, and this can only happen with the community’s support.

Cat baseball season ends against Gaston BY JOSIAH DARR Headlight Herald Sports

The Nestucca Bobcats baseball team was clinging to life and a last chance to make the state playoffs when they played the Gaston Greyhounds in the play-in game for a chance to keep their season alive. The Cats had beaten Gaston two out of three times this season so the feat of beating them again was well within reach. Jacob Menefee got the start for Tillamook, but could only last three innings before the big inning bug came to haunt the Bobcats. Gaston managed to push eight runners across the plate in the third and Menefee gave way to Brian Anderson and eventually Jade Downs. “We actually started off okay in the first and scored one run, but after that all we could do is get a few guys on base and leave them stranded,” said Bobcat head coach Clint Sisco about his team’s inability to score. “Their

pitcher hit the corners, but he wasn’t unhittable. He just made smart pitches and we didn’t capitalize on any mistakes he did make.” The Bobcats did what they could but the Greyhounds ended their season in five innings by the score of 12-2.

“We’re only losing three seniors off the team in Joey Chatelain, Kyler Jones and Austin Woods so we’re losing good leadership, but we have some good juniors who’ve already been leaders in this team ready to step up and take on the senior role,” Sisco said.

Nate McRae has been outstanding for Tillamook all season and he didn’t disappoint at districts. McRae won the high jump, triple jump and the high hurdles, but will only compete in the high jump and high hurdles at state.

The Nestucca Bobcats softball girls hit a bit of bad luck to end their season, losing their last 10 straight games, but they still managed to take third place in the Northwest League and had a shot at a state playoff spot if they could beat Vernonia on May 16 in their play-in game. The Bobcats took two of three from the Loggers earlier this season, but when it comes to the playoff, history goes out the window. “I told the girls before the game, I didn’t care of we won or lost, I just cared that they played hard,” said Bobcat head coach Jeff Schiewe. “They came out and went for it.” Kycie Richwine took the circle for the Lady Cats and to say she was spot on is an understatement. Other than giving up two runs in the third inning, Richwine was untouchable. She also knocked in the first run of the game for the Bobcats in the first inning to help her cause.

Neskowin Valley School Open House Neskowin Valley School will hold an open house on Friday, May 24, from 3:15-5 p.m. as it closes out its May Friday School session. The public is invited to watch students demonstrate what they have learned and to learn more about the full-year program for 2013-14. “We always do a showcase of what students did on the last Friday of each Friday School session,” said Head of School Julie Fiedler. “Our teaching staff decided the showcase might be an ideal time for families considering NVS this fall to see their Friday School work and meet students, parents and staff.” The open house will include students chanting storybook favorites from the EnCHANTing Fairy Tales class, objects that move from Toy Physics, fractals from the Magic of Nature and Math, vendors from The Streets of China and monoprints, cartoons, and poems. Eleven public-school

and home-school students joined those from NVS in the classes, which included drama, cooking lunch for the entire school and NVS-style baseball at the end of the day. This will be the last Friday School for NVS as the Nestucca School District goes back to a five-day week in the fall. The school is planning outreach to home-school students for 2013-14 and hopes homeschoolers will come to the open house. “We plan to structure our afternoon curriculum so a small number of home-school students will be able to join some of our regular arts programming,” said Fiedler. “We encourage home-schooling parents to learn more about NVS.” The school is accepting enrollment for students ages 3 - grade 8 for Fall 201314 and for its Summer Day Camps in July.

“We need to strengthen such inner values as contentment, patience and tolerance, as well as compassion for others…keeping in mind that it is expressions of affection rather than money and power that attract real friends, Compassion is the key to ensuring our own well-being.” – Dalai Lama (May 11, 2013)


spent my 59th birthday with almost 11,000 other people on May 11. My mind, heart and soul were filled with renewed hope and I was reminded of the inner values of contentment, patience, tolerance, and compassion for others… Senator Jeff Merkley introduced His Holiness the Delai Lama and panelists to start the Environmental Summit on “Universal Responsibility and the Global Environment.” The panel included: Governor John Kitzhaber, Andrea Durbin, executive director of the Oregon Environmental Council, and Canadian scientist David Suzuki. The Delai Lama had a number of points to make about the urgency of the environmental situation. “As a Buddhist monk I don’t have any children or grandchildren to worry about, but I’m sure the other panelists do. Allowing the gap between the rich and poor to grow is not only morally wrong, but also practically a mistake. It’s not what we need to do to make the



onday, May 27 is Memorial Day. city hall, the port office, the post office, the bank, and the Garibaldi library will all be closed. (We have early deadlines at the paper, too.) A lot will be happening Memorial Day weekend. Saturday, May 25 is the annual Blessing of the Fleet. This moving ceremony takes place at the Coast Guard Memorial (if you haven’t been there before, the turnoff is just past the Harborview Motel on S. 7th Street).

It starts at 1 p.m. For more information, contact Laurice Meyers at 503-

I would like to say congratulations to The Neah-Kah-Nie National Ocean Sciences Bowl Team for placing First and Fourth at the national competition. The NKN NOSB won both a first place trophy for their science experts briefing and a fourth place trophy for the competition overall. As salmon bowl champions representing Oregon, Idaho, and southwest Washington, senior Captain Branson Laszlo, seniors Chris Mills, Eric Clifford, and Willa Childress, junior Nathan Imholt and coaches Beth Gienger and Peter Walczak traveled to Milwaukee, Wisc. To compete against 24 other regional winners from around the nation. Also Congratulations to Gregory Elligsen of Nehalem for placing first in the high jump at the district track meet with a height of five feet.

rich poorer, but we must find ways to improve the lot of the poor.” Suzuki said, “We (the earth) have already passed so many tipping points, but it doesn’t seem to me that there is any point to say ‘It’s too late.’ Andrea Durbin agreed. “The global climate change is a big issue and we have not done nearly enough to address it.” Governor Kitzhaber pointed out, “We live in an economy based on consumption and we need a new measure of how it functions - it’s not just what we consume but our rate of consumption.” The Dalai Lama ended his afternoon talk by having the 11,000 members of the audience place white silk scarves around their necks. Suddenly, the auditorium was filled with white … and it seemed that a “sense of peace” and renewal filled to auditorium.

If anyone is interested contact the Postmaster Wayne Peterson at the United States Postal Service in Tillamook. Ed and Irene Gorzynski were high school sweet hearts in Chicago. They recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary by going to dinner with friends. The couple have loved and stayed together all of these years, but still have never gotten over their Chicago accents. Congratulations to two very special people. I am not one for change… My new Email address is: I am still working on notifying all of my contacts. The biggest surprise to the Dalai Lama about humanity is man. “Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.” I was able to cross something off of my “Bucket List” on my 59th birthday. There is a lot left to be done in this world and I plan to live every second of it!

842-2570. This will be the 30th year of the Blessing of the Fleet in Garibaldi. The Blessing of the Fleet – praying for a safe fishing season and a bountiful harvest – is a centuries-old tradition from Mediterranean fishing communities. Fishermen from those areas who emigrated to the United States, settling mostly on the East Coast, brought the tradition with them. Lorraine Vandecoevering started Garibaldi’s Blessing of the Fleet tradition in 1983. (Giuseppe Garibaldi, after whom the town is named, was an Italian fisherman, remember.) It was originally held in March, then later moved to Memorial Day weekend. Following the tolling of the bell honoring the long list of those who have lost their lives at sea – the Tillamook Bar is a dangerous crossing – boats have historically taken kids out to spread flowers on the water (weather – and boats – permitting). Also on Saturday, Brain Ratty, author of Tillamook Passage, will be at the Garibaldi Museum‘s community room to give a presentation on his historical fiction book. From 1:30

– 3 p.m., Brian will be signing books as well as answering questions. Light refreshments will be served. For additional information, contact the Garibaldi Museum at 503-322-8411 or info@garibaldimuseum. com. For more information on Brian’s books please see www. Sunday, May 26, is the Garibaldi Lions Club’s Memorial Day Weekend Fish Fry – another long-standing tradition, held noon to 5 p.m. at the Old Mill Marina Resort. It’s one of the Lions Club’s biggest fundraisers of the year, and the fish is excellent. Do come. And the following weekend – Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1 – is the 10th Annual Bounty on the Bay, organized by the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership – two days of fishing, feasting, and fun. For more information, contact TEP at 503-322-2222. There will also be a square dance that Saturday night, on the dance floor at Garibaldi City Hall, sponsored by the wave Steppers. Daryl Clenendin from Portland will be the caller, and his wife Yvonne will be cueing the round dances. Starts at 7 p.m.





uests at my house for Mother’s Day weekend included older son Zachory with Lenny, his life partner, and their two sweet pit-bull terriers, LeiLu and Moss. Besides feasting on a variety of vegetarian soups that I’d concocted for the occasion, we watched movies from my late father’s collection and hiked the Nestucca Spit. While I fear that we missed the trail outlined in the Coast Hikes book I keep in the guest room, we made an adventure of it nevertheless, meeting mosquitoes and many a party on horseback with our trio of enthusiastic dogs in tow. My six-month-old chihuahua pup, Maggie, was beside herself with curiosity over the equine beasts. We enjoyed a great weekend. The Pacific City-Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Pacific City Dorymen’s Association published their annual Coloring Contest last week. Entries will be accepted from six age groups: 3-5, 6-8, 12-17, 18-49, 50 and up. Anyone can participate regardless of family relationship or employment related to the event or its sponsors. School children will be provided a page at their respective school or childcare center. The rest of us will find coloring pages at the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center in Cloverdale or the Kiwanda Community Center in Pacific City, which will also collect the finished entries. Submissions are due

The event happens at the Kenneth Reusser memorial bridge in Cloverdale, on the beautiful Nestucca River. The bridge was dedicated to Ken in 1985 when it was built to replace the old covered bridge.  Ken was born and grew up at the other end (away from town) of the covered bridge.  In high school he would jump off the top of the covered bridge for 25 cents per jump to earn money for college.  He also raced motorcycles for the same purpose.  Speaking of happy memories, The Headlight Herald is offering videos of this year’s graduation ceremony for Nestucca Students.

neighbor and friend. Dave had found a large mahogany beam on Cape Meares Beach and was working on making two benches out of it. Both benches were finished. He carved one bench with a gold and silver cross and carved a fish on the other bench. He improved the steps down to the beach at the end of Pacific Avenue in Cape Meares and also kept the grass mowed by the “Betty Bench” at the approach to the beach. He kept the Bayocean Schoolhouse supplied with the good brooms his company made. Paper products were also donated along with the soap dispensers and soaps. What a generous man so many of us appreciated. He will be missed very much by all of us. If you would like to send a condolence card to his wife, Ema Hanset, her address is:  9479 S. E. Hillcrest

ongratulations to our own Bay City Resident, Janie Taylor. As part of the annual celebration of National Nurses Week and Hospital Week, the May 2013 DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses was awarded on May 6 to Janie Taylor, LPN, an outpatient therapy services nurse at Tillamook County General Hospital. When asked about her nursing career path, Taylor related that she had felt a calling to this profession for some time so when a friend started nursing training, she signed up as well. In 1964, she joined the hospital as a nurse’s aide, working for two years. She came back to work in the fall of 1970 as an LPN. In the years since, Taylor has served patients in emergency department, medical surgical, obstetrics and outpatient therapy services. She will celebrate a total of 45 years in the nursing profession this year. We are all very proud of you for receiving this award Janie. It is that time of year when we see more bicyclists on our local roads and Hwy 101. Gordon McCraw shares these tips for safety with us: bicycle safety – always wear your helmet. Ride in the same direction as traffic, not against traffic and in a single file. Stay alert and ride predictably. Don’t assume motorists can see you. Use bike lanes when available. Bike lanes provide a safe space just for bicyclists. When you are in the street, you are required to follow the rules of the road just like a vehicle. If you are on the sidewalk, ride at walking speed and be prepared to walk your bike when there is congestion. It is recommended that you walk your bike in a crosswalk. Obey all traffic signs and signals. Look left, right, and left again to ensure your path is

informed me that there are a limited number of spaces still available in the Community Victory Garden. The space is $10; additional spaces are $5 each. I have a feeling this will be a great summer for a garden. Call 503-355-0782 for more information. I love to point out the great things in our community. While carving with friends the other day, we began talking about folks in our community who need a “shout out.” I’m giving one to my friend Marni Sheets Johnson. She gives above and beyond what is expected in her job. Whenever I’m at a loss for words, she helps me with community information I just can’t find otherwise. She has been there for our community day and night. Folks like that aren’t always so easy to find. Thanks Marni! The Meals for Seniors French toast breakfast is this Saturday, May 25. It will be at St. Mary’s Hall from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. You can have a wonderful breakfast and explore the silent auction and raffle. There are really cool items to browse. Drop by and check them out! Our very cool Friends of the Library are asking for donations of books/CDs/ DVDs/puzzles for their book sale which is Saturday, August 24. They will be having the sale at the same time as the Arts and Crafts Sale. Your donations can be dropped off at the library M-F 12-5 p.m. and Sat. 10 a.m – 3 p.m. I actually took one of the computer tutorials to help me out a bit with my new tablet. It was very informative for me. The next tutorial will be on June 7. Be sure to call to sign up. Whether you’re new or experienced, I recommend it. “Don’t waste your time looking back on what you’ve lost.

clear. Look back over your shoulder to avoid traffic before navigating a left turn. Yield if necessary and signal before turning. Be visible. Wear bright clothing and reflective materials when you ride. Use a white front light, red rear light and reflectors at night. Watch out for potholes, broken glass, opening car doors and parked cars that can block your view. Be aware of vehicles exiting driveways that may not see you. Keep pant legs and shoelaces out of moving parts. Pay attention to traffic. Do not use headphones or cell phones while you bike. Signal before making a turn or before stopping to warn traffic and bicyclists behind you. Motorists – always have an eye out for bicyclists and pedestrians, especially during dark hours. When you are entering a popular bike or pedestrian area, expect that you may encounter them and slow down ahead of time. Be prepared to stop when approaching crosswalks. Drive at cautious speeds in rainy weather and in low-light areas. Ditch the distractions such as cell phones so you can focus on driving. Remember, road conditions can impact your stopping ability, so be prepared. Only pass bicyclists if it is safe to do so; slow down and give bicyclists ample room. Be Patient. Thanks Gordon for hopefully making the difference to someone’s life by sharing this with us. I know I mentioned this last week but it is too important not to remind you again: next Bay City Booster meeting is Friday, May 24. For a change the meeting will be a potluck/ picnic lunch at the Bay City Park. Of course, if it rains, we will need to meet at the city hall instead. Hot dogs will be provided and people are encouraged to bring potluck dishes that would fit with a hot dog picnic lunch. The gathering will start at 11:30 a.m. Welcome all! Come visit with your friends and neighbors and learn about how you can be involved with Boosters and activities that help our town. Have a great week and see you around town.

Notes From the Coast

What it’s like to be the butt of the joke


write a humor column. Okay, it’s been argued both ways, but I insist I do. The challenge to writing humor is somebody has to be the butt. How do you make a joke without hurting someone’s feelings? If you’re the butt, you know how it feels. You probably have some favorite jokes that target men, women, children, teens, the elderly, ethnic groups, Texans, almost anyone but yourself. That’s why self-effacing humor – virtually taking off the face you present to the world so you can be seen, warts and all – is so charming. It shows you’re comfortable in your own skin and you don’t have to insult anyone else to be funny. You’ve solved the humor dilemma. You’re the butt. I say all this because I mean no disrespect to Maxwell’s Restaurant, a good eating place with friendly service located in Lincoln City. I lost a pool game in league play recently at Max-


well’s. It was my son’s fault. Both of my sons are funny. I like to think it’s evidence they’re actually my sons. I’m envious of my youngest son Josh who can repeat complete comic shticks he’s heard once. Although my older son Patrick who lives in Texas is a religious fundamentalist and as far as I know he’s never blown anything up, still, he too has a great sense of humor. During a weeklong visit each year, there are inevitable slow periods and occasionally Patrick will read ads and make funny comments to entertain us. I mean no

disrespect to Maxwell’s, but something about it makes Patrick laugh. Two-for-One Sirloin Steak Special, he’ll read aloud. Mmmm, he will say. Hey, if we hurry, we can catch the early bird special at Maxwell’s. Maybe he’s a secret vegetarian. It’s an unknown fact, but vegetarianism is against the law in Texas. Or maybe it’s Maxwell’s extensive collection of Betty Boop paraphernalia. I know how Maxwell’s must feel. I fancy myself a cook. After I had served Patrick a dish I had worked for hours on – crab cakes I’d made from Dungeness crabs I’d caught in the ocean in my own dory boat off Pacific City – boiled, cleaned, picked and served with mango salsa, Patrick pushed himself back from the table, patted his stomach, and said, “man, was that filling.” A few nights ago I played league pool at Maxwell’s. About half way through, I heard an electric hum

Sixteen classes in a variety of art forms are being offered to preschoolaged children (3-5 years old and bathroom trained) and to students entering Kindergarten through 12th grade next fall. Slug Soup is open to the public and financial assistance is available. It’s a fun-filled, creative week! For registration information, contact Kim Cavatorta at 503-392-4581 or info@communityartsproject. net, or visit CAP’s website at www.communityartsproject. net and click on Slug Soup.

that I could feel in my heel bones. A voice reverberated throughout the cavernous dance hall over a PA system set on nine. Then the music started. Unable to hear each other, we pool players had to use sign language to indicate which ball was called in which pocket. I made the mistake of thinking of Patrick and couldn’t stop laughing. I lost the game but it was his fault. After all, how could I sink a long shot while laughing at my son’s grinning face while I listened to the locals sing rock and roll karaoke at Maxwell’s? Now you can appreciate my skill in writing humor. Even though I wrote this piece, and Maxwell’s was the butt, it’s Patrick’s fault. As for the folks at Maxwell’s, even though you probably don’t have a Maxwell’s joke, I’m sure you have a Texas joke, and since Patrick is in Texas two thousand miles away, why should you care? As for my other son Josh, I’ll get to you later.

The Tillamook County Historical Society placed a historical sign on the Beal’s Building in downtown Tillamook on May 18, preceding their regular meeting. The sign gives a brief history of the building and its original owner, Arthur Generouos Beals, who was a prominent businessman in Tillamook. The current owner, Marilyn Saito, asked her good friend, Gretchen Jacobs, to represent her at the placing of the sign. The TCHS has many signs on historical buildings in Tillamook, such as the Odd Fellows Building, Thayer Bank Building, Tilllamook Masonic Building, Alderman Building and others. Take a walk around town and learn some of Tillamook’s early history.

8 Paws, No Claws


Finnegan and Sage were left behind when their people moved, but their loss could be your gain. This young, beautiful male-female pair seeks a wonderful indoor-only home, as they have both been declawed, front and back, by their former guardians. Tortoiseshell Sage is a true extrovert, while orange & white tabby Finn is a wee bit more reserved, but both are certainly fond of petting, playing and purring. This marvelous duo is available at our special Pairs Price adoption fee of $45. Go on, get double the love!
