phone scam returns by Joe Wrabek

Tillamook County Sheriff’s Department has advised that a popular scam for extracting cash from the elderly is back in Tillamook County. “Older people are getting calls saying, ‘Your grandkid’s been arrested in Mexico,’” detective Yvonne Garcia sald. Ostensibly, the grandkid went to Mexico because a friend had been killed there, and while there was pulled over by police who later found pot in the car. The callers are saying, “Don’t tell family members, just send $1,900,” Garcia said. “The ‘don’t tell anyone’ should be a red flag,” she said. The sheriff’s office heard about the phone scam from a potential victim, Garcia said. “He said he was ready to buy into it, and then decided something was fishy,” she said. “Most folks will do almost anything for their grandkids,” she noted. The phone scammers “are using an American Embassy type,” Garcia said. “They’re quite professional.” Anyone receiving one of these calls should contact the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Department.


Local firefighter talks about the Douglas County Complex fires By Sayde Moser

It’s been nearly three weeks since lightning sparked the Douglas Complex wildfires in southern Oregon. More than 45,000 acres have burned in Douglas and Josephine counties. Nearly 3,000 personnel are working to contain the damage. For the first two weeks, it was America’s highestpriority fire for resources. Vance Wetzel, a Tillamook Fire District volunteer for the past four years, was among the first firefighters

sent to the Douglas Complex. He returned home August 10 after 14 straight days on duty. Wetzel, 20, is studying at Tillamook Bay Community College to be an EMT. He is employed seasonally by Keith Whitehead Reforestation. Whitehead Reforestation sent a crew of 20, mostly from Tillamook, to Douglas County to help dig fire lines, back burn, dig hot spots and mop up. The company, founded in 1981, is located at 9000 Bewley Creek Road in Tillamook, according to informa-

tion available online. Wetzel said his crew was up every day at 4 a.m. for breakfast and to pack their gear. They usually were on the fire line by 6 a.m. “It’s normal to work about 12 to 16 hours a day,” he said. “But we worked days that were 19 hours or longer. “If we’re holding down a line, it’s normally pretty late days.” Added Wetzel, “If you want to fight fires, you have to be ready to work.” He said he had gained confidence before being sent to southern Oregon by

Graduates from the last class of Wheeler High School, before it was consolidated in 1954, recall some of their favorite memories.

School days ... 60 years later By Sayde Moser

They were members of the last class ever to graduate from Wheeler High School. That was 60 years ago, in 1953. The following year, the schools in what is now the Neah-Kah-Nie district consolidated into one high school north of Rockaway Beach. “We were quite a crazy group,” remembers Merry Lu Bowen, one of the 23 graduates.

Of those 23, 10 have passed away. Two – Gloria Shannon and Lenora Woods – are unaccounted for. Graduate Don McElrea says it was a pretty goodsized class to come out of that school. “One of the largest we ever had.” So was the gymnasium. “It was one of the best in the entire county,” he says. “It was the only one with a full-sized floor.” Amazing, too, was

See WHEELER, Page A3

If your interests run to classic cars, local music and delicious food, Cloverdale’s got a deal for you. The small town’s first-ever cruise-in begins at 5 p.m. Aug. 21 at the Garden Café, at the intersection of Bridge Street and U.S. Highway 101. Admission is free. “It’s a community thing,” said Tom Goodwin, one of the family event’s organizers. Goodwin owns the art gallery across the street from the Garden Café. Other sponsors include Dick and Ann Warren (Robert Warren Trucking), Phil and Beth Horine (The Philing Station), Eric and Diane Franklin (Garden Café), and Jeff and Carrie Turnbaugh (Nestucca Valley Auto Parts). “Nostalgia is a big part of this,” said Goodwin. Participants are invited to bring a hot rod, cruiser or any vehicle of choice. Low-riders, hi-boys, choppers, Ferraris … all are welcome. Visitors are invited to scout out the machinery (perhaps the tattoos, too) on display. • The Warrens will bring several of their classics, including a rare tri-power ’58 Chevy Impala (with original 3-carb engine) and a ’59 El Camino, which took first place at the recent cruise-in at The Dalles. • The Horines will bring a ’39 Ford 4-door convertible and a 1927 Chevrolet speedster (with a Ford Model B engine). • Goodwin will have his ’47 Ford 2-door and ‘48 Ford dump truck. • Don Fite, aka “Spiderman,” will be on hand to do pin striping.

The courtyard at the Nehalem Beehive beckons passersby to sit and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and relax. Inside, patrons find a self-serve tea and coffee bar, and an opportunity to purchase coffee and herbal teas for home use.

Nehalem Beehive buzzin’ in downtown Nehalem By Dave Fisher

For the Headlight Herald

Open since August 1, the Nehalem Beehive might best be described as a work in progress. Owner Brenna Hamer, a resident of the area for the past nine years and an encaustic painter (one who paints with melted beeswax, pigment and damar resin), this spring bought the buildings once home to Art Happens, plus a variety of other businesses next door.

For the past four months, Hamer has been knee-deep in the renovation of the 2,000-square-foot space, treating it much like she would a blank canvas. She has a vision, yet is constantly tweaking. The result is a warm and inviting interior. “I want people to come and hang out, be comfortable, and enjoy one another and themselves,” said artist Hamer, who’s also a gardener and makes lotion bars from beeswax. The Nehalem Beehive

is an all-age venue featuring self-serve herbal teas and coffee, art and Old World crafts, artisan gifts, music, and a courtyard with benches and tables. The back portion of the building is being rented; a small café is in the works. Her mission, says Hamer, is to support artists and small, environmentally friendly companies, and to provide a comfortable place for local residents, vacationers and second-home owners. As for her business’s

name, Hamer said she believes the fate of bees is closely related to the health of our planet and our fate. “Hopefully,” she said, “beehives are very active and healthy places. A place where everyone gathers and engage each other” – precisely how she wants her business to evolve. The Nehalem Beehive, at 35870 7th St. (U.S. Highway 101), is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursdays through Mondays. For more information, call 503-3682337.

district championship. “That was big,” says McElrea, “because Wheeler hadn’t won against Garibaldi in five years. But we won that year.” Audra says the football coach at Garibaldi liked to recruit players from throughout the area. “He was a real super-powered coach and principal,” she says. “He would get people from out of town, get their dads jobs at the mill and recruit the sons for football.” As for the town of Wheeler, it was bigger in those days, Bowen says, thanks to the mill. Most of the parents were loggers or worked in the mill. “We were probably all poor and didn’t know it,” says Bowen. “And we didn’t care.”

standing in the library watching the eagles fly over the bay and catch fish. “We were so truly blessed with that beautiful wide-open view of the bay from all our west windows,” agrees Bowen. “Every time I go by it, I think of that beautiful property with the best view in the world.” Bowen lives in Portland now and the McElreas live in Arkansas, although they come back to the area every summer. Bowen says one of her cherished memories was her junior year, when some of the football players and cheerleaders decided to “play hooky” and go for a boat ride out on the bay – right in front of the school. “The principal’s office faced the bay and we all knew they were out there,” she says with a laugh. “They weren’t allowed to play the next game; that was their punishment.” The elementary school was located on the same campus. It boasted its own cafeteria. “That was really upscale in those days,” says McElrea’s wife, Audra. She attended high school in Garibaldi and graduated in 1954 from Neah-Kah-Nie. McElrea remembers how all the students were supposed to enter in the front of the building – but the high schoolers entered in the back through a window. “There was this ramp that went right up to a window and we would just walk right through it,” he says. During their senior year, there was a threeway tie in football for the

Bringing timber-related jobs back to Tillamook County By Tim Josi

Tillamook County Commissioner Chair, Council of Forest Trust Land Counties

After the Spotted Owl was listed as an endangered species in the early 1990’s Federal Forest harvest levels dropped by 93 percent in the Northwest. Our neglect of this issue has resulted in overstocked and diseased forests. What we now experience – every summer – is massive carbon dioxide emitting forest fires that are extremely expensive to fight. And they are deadly, as we are again experiencing this year. Current management practices are not acceptable. Last year the federal government spent $1.1 billion dollars in fire suppression and only $300 million dollars reducing fuel load.  This is a poor investment of our public dollars.  The fact is prudent management will result in much needed jobs and a healthy forest environment. All across America, we have the opportunity to do a better job of managing our forests. If we do what’s right, we will spur rural economic development in timber dependent communities that need logs for their lumber mills. Bringing back family wages jobs will do much to revitalize America’s economy.  In the Pacific Northwest, we harvested 3.8 billion board feet in 1987 from our federal forests. Today we’re lucky if the annual harvest is 350 million board feet. The irony is each year we lose about 760 million board feet of timber due to disease caused by a lack of thinning in our over-stocked national forests. This doesn’t make sense. If we just increased the annual harvest to account for this annual mortality, we could create about 27,000 new family wage jobs. And, we would only be harvesting about forty percent of the annual growth.  Fortunately Congress is

starting to take action. Last week the House Resources Committee “marked up” HR 1526. Simply put, committee members examined the legislation and made modifications. HR 1526 provides opportunities for the expeditious management and rehabilitation on forest land that has been impacted by wildfire, insect infestation, disease, etc. The legislation will allow burned timber to be removed while it still has value. This will create jobs and expedite the recovery of the burned landscape.  HR 1526 also contains the O&C Trust, Conservation and Jobs Act. This Act provides sensible, balanced management of the O&C lands. The bill provides for protection of old growth, revenues for counties, additional wilderness, expanded wild and scenic river designations and enhanced watershed protection.  None of this would have happened without the efforts of Congressmen DeFazio, Schrader and Walden. Their bipartisan efforts are remarkable.   The next step is to have the bill pass the entire House of Representatives. The bill will then go to the Senate and specifically to the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, chaired by Senator Ron Wyden. He is well positioned to move this bill and create the long term solutions for our federal forest lands.  Teddy Roosevelt understood the value of conserving our federal forest lands. He placed these lands in a public trust for all Americans to enjoy. He also understood the economic burden the program placed on rural communities. As a result, he approved legislation that supported county services and schools. This law worked well for nearly a century.   When you get a chance, thank Congressman Schrader for his efforts to keep Teddy Roosevelt’s vision for our federal forest lands alive.

Readers’ Open Forum A fair thanks With the completion of another successful Tillamook County Fair, we wanted to make sure and let you all know that the Tillamook County Fair would not be the success it is without the close to 300 volunteers who helped to make this the best county fair around. Your five member Tillamook County Fair Board are all volunteers too. We can’t them enough for their dedication and commitment to the fair. If you see Rita Hogan, Jack DeSwart, Don Averill, Nick Stiener and Doug Doyle stop and tell them thanks for another great Tillamook Fair. They deserve it! Tillamook County Commissioners Mark Labhart Bill Baertlein Tim Josi

Fair could use more seating options I went to the fair for the first time in many years. I had a wonderful time with my grandkids, watching the young ones riding the rides and squealing with joy. I do have a question for

the Fair Board, though. I am disabled and although my disability is not severe, I was surprised that there were not many places to sit. All the chairs and benches were in by the little rides; there were none by the big rides. It would have been nice to have some seats in that area, too. There used to be seats all around the carnival; any good reason why not this year? Darleen Cole Beaver

Fair is overpriced Here we go again. A family of four had to pay $165 to park and get into the fair. Add another $80-$100 for food, snacks and treats. In minimum wage language that translates to 30 hours of work sans taxes just to entertain one’s family for one short day and be a part of Tillamook County ‘doings.’ Can everyone say over priced? To pay $30 a day for a ride bracelet is ridiculous. My granddaughter was part of the ‘entertainment’ this year and needed to be accompanied by an adult for her short performance. It was

$10 just to escort a child into the grounds and wait for her to be done and she performed three times for a total of $30 just to walk her in. I am sickened by the cost to already struggling families and saddened for all those children who were not be able to attend. Is the almighty dollar so important? I get that people need to make money and nothing is free but really? This is just too much for people fighting for survival in a county that is severely economically depressed. I also noticed that if you had the sad distinction of needing what they call a ‘premium’ handicapped parking place the price doubled to $10. How ‘right’ is that? What about a ride bracelet for children who can’t get on some of the rides - young kids who are not tall enough for some of them should not have to pay for access to all of the rides. A $10 bracelet for those kids would be more than enough. More thought should go into the pricing for this very expensive fair. Nedra Rice Tillamook

Changes at the fair not always good

I’ve been enjoying the Tillamook County Fair for almost 20 years. I’m old enough to know that while change is often inevitable – it is not always for the better. And such was the situation with this year’s fair. For instance, on opening day, there was not only no flagpole visible from the stands, there was no Star Spangled Banner and no American flag. And while I’m complaining, the racing tote board was partially blocked by the bands’ speakers. On day two, the young man who bugles the call to announce each race did play the Star Spangled Banner to the delight of the crowd. Plus, the offending speaker system had been removed to permit viewing of the entire tote board. I’m aware I sound petty and complaining and that changes will happen in spite of me. But thanks for letting me vent. Imie Camelli Tillamook

Renewable Fuel Standard putting farmers out of business By Jim Krahn

Executive Director (Retired) Oregon Dairy Farmers Association

Corn-based ethanol and our nation’s Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) are putting farms in Oregon and across the country out of business. The national RFS Program was developed to increase the volume of renewable fuel that is blended into transportation fuels. By 2022, 36 billion gallons of renewable fuel must be used per year and, as of now; the primary source of the renewable fuel blend will be cornbased ethanol.

While the intentions behind the RFS were good (increase energy independence/ Jim Krahn security; Exec. Director (Ret.) encourage the development of sustainable and environmentally sound fuel sources), the over reliance on corn ethanol has made the RFS to be a flawed policy that is presenting tremendous hardship for Oregon’s dairy farmers. There are currently

123,000 dairy cows in Oregon and those animals need to be fed. Corn is one of the primary feedstocks used in agriculture and our dairy cows are no exception. The U.S. livestock and poultry industries have been the largest source of demand for the nation’s corn crop since the USDA began reporting corn utilization data. However, under the RFS, more and more corn is being dedicated to transportation fuel blends and diverted away from traditional uses like animal feed. The federal government has mandated that 5.36 billion bushels of corn be used to make fuel regard-

less of drought conditions. In 2012, more than 40 percent of the corn crop was used to make ethanol. This past year we saw how dangerous this can be. The drought of 2012 severely reduced the corn yield and sent corn prices to record highs. Everyone in the barnyard business saw feed supplies disappear and prices go through the roof. As a result many dairies have found themselves on the brink of liquidation or have already folded. Oregon dairy farmers understand the need for sustainable, domestically sourced energy but our

The importance of vegetation management By Liane Welch Tillamook Co. Public Works Director

Although it grows so much, so fast, that it presents a problem with road maintenance. We at the County Road Department have the responsibility of maintaining approximately 300+ miles of county roads including 100+ bridges.

industry will have difficulty sustaining if we do not modify the RFS. Since the RFS was first enacted in 2005, new technologies have been developed that can produce ethanol from other sources like natural gas. However, these advances in technology cannot benefit farmers or consumers because the conventional biofuels portion of the RFS only recognizes corn-based ethanol. Congress needs to move and move quickly to fix the problems with the RFS before more farms are forced to close. Thankfully, a bi-partisan bill has been introduced in Congress that will modify the RFS and help alleviate its corn addiction by

adding a new “domestic alternative fuels” category to the conventional ethanol portion of the RFS. Nearly 20 congressmen from both sides of the aisle, including Oregon Congressman Kurt Schrader, have signed onto the bill. Our industry accounts for $415 million in gross farm sales and we are an important economic base for communities throughout Oregon. Feed costs have rocketed since the RFS was enacted and our industry is struggling under the weight.

VEGETATION: patient. Roads are selected by the amount of vegetation that needs cutting and how close the brush is to the traveled portion of the roadway. Higher volume roads are cleared farther out from the traveled portion than are local roads When mowing or brushing is not feasible, our herbicide program consisting of a state licensed and trained vegetation specialist and one spray truck utilizes effective formulations and methods for controlling vegetation. There are several steps involved in vegetation management. The most important step is the maintenance of the zone 1, a 12”-48” bare strip next to the pavement to prevent

deterioration of the road surface by encroaching grasses and weeds. Zone 2 covers the ditch up to the tree limb. It encourages the growth of grass to act as a filter for road runoff water and for erosion control in the ditch line. It promotes low growing native species to reduce mowing expenses, preserve sight distance, and crow out noxious weeds. Zone 3 treats small trees and blackberries.  Other programs include signpost treatment, guardrail treatment, noxious weeds outside the second zone, and other special activities for construction projects. If the terrain is rough or inaccessible, we may spray the area with chemical control agents to control brush.

The herbicides used in the brush control program have been approved for use in the road right-of-way near human activity areas and environmentally sensitive areas including bodies of water. If property owners do not want herbicide used on their County Road frontage, property owners can sign an agreement whereby the property owner agrees to maintain the vegetation to the satisfaction of the County. No Spray signs are available for a fee and must be displayed so that they can be easily seen from the roadway. The county is committed to working with organic producers, if you haven’t registered with us, please call 503-842-3419.

Obituaries Wrex Cruse

Wrex Wayne Cruse died peacefully in his home on July 17, 2013. He was born on July 6, 1939 in Santa Clara County, Calif. to Alberta (Shine) Wrex Cruse Cruse and Wrex W. Cruse, Sr. He had a sister, Betty, who predeceased him. Wrex spent some of his childhood years in Hawaii where his father was employed by PanAm Airlines. Thus began a love for Hawaii that endured. Wrex graduated from Central Catholic High School in Portland and married Jill Miles. Three children were born, Robert Cruse, Cathy Sitzes, and John Kluppenger. In 1968 Wrex married Sharon Alspach in Tillamook. They were divorced in 1971. Wrex had a natural ability to see opportunities and he created several successful businesses. In his latter years, he ran a rescue mission in Astoria for about 10 years and later opened his home in Rockaway Beach to men who needed a hand up and out. Many have credited Wrex for saving their lives. Wrex knew his salvation was by grace and wanted to help others recover. Wrex cared for Daniel Leaverton, 85, in his home but when Wrex died, Daniel was moved to the care center and died there recently. Wrex has eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren. He was able to frequently see Issac (2) who is Bob’s son. Issac was a delight to Wrex who didn’t get to see his other grandchildren often. A memorial service is planned in Wrex’s honor at Rockaway Community Church, on Aug. 19 at 11 a.m. Bill Browne, a best friend, can be contacted at the church, 503-355-2581, if more information is needed.

“This is all the rage in knitting,” said Arlene Sachitano. Sachitano is a knitting instructor at the Latimer Quilt & Textile Center. She’s one of several knitters responsible for recently “yarn bombing” the staircase of the 4-H dorm at the Tillamook County Fairgrounds. The colorful form of public art has been around since at least 2004, but Sachitano said it’s only just now catching on in the Northwest. “There are some really cool pieces right now in Portland where people have yarn bombed trees, bike racks and fences,” said Sachitano. The staircase yarn bomb at the 4-H dorm involved a combination of knitters from the Latimer Quilt & Textile Center, Tangled Yarns in Tillamook and the 4-H fiber arts day camp. Teri Fladstol, an instructor at the day camp, said she received permission from the Tillamook County Fair Board before her students yarn bombed the staircase. “It’s a perfect way to use up acrylic yarn,” said Fladstol, “because it’s kind of scratchy and doesn’t re-


His living conditions included two shower units set up at the camp in Glendale. That camp totaled more than 2,000 people at one point, so his crew and a few hundred other firefighters were bumped over to Riddle, about 15 miles away. “We were camped at the elementary school, so we had cell service and could charge our phones and call home,” he said. “So that was nice.” That said, everyone was happy to return home. The crew was given two days off before being put back on the list to return to the lines. “Probably 75 percent of our crew is married, with kids, so it really helps them to get to see their families,”

said Wetzel. What’s next for him? With several other fires burning in the region, Wetzel said he won’t be surprised to be called out soon. “It’ll probably be just enough time to wash clothes, get things repacked, fix your boots, hang out with family and friends for a day, then get right back at it.” His mother, Keri Holmes Wetzel, said, “Since the

tragedy of losing those 19 ‘hot shots’ in Arizona, it reinforces the fact that we have to enjoy each day with one another because there are no guarantees of another tomorrow.” “When we get called out,” said her son, “I call mom and tell her I love her and give her a kiss goodbye if I can.”

But what about poison oak? Wetzel said it was some of the worst he’d ever seen. “We had five guys come down with it really bad.” In fact, a shuttle service was created to take crewmembers to a local hospital for allergy shots.

Flood insurance costs: no answers, just worries By Joe Wrabek

“It’s like waiting for a tsunami... You know it’s coming and it’s just a tragedy waiting to happen.” Barbara Taylor is a Pacific City realtor, and like her colleagues she’s anxiously waiting to see what happens when premiums for flood insurance policyholders go up in October – and exactly how much they’ll be going up. “Costs are going up by a large percentage for customers like me who have faithfully paid flood insurance,” Taylor said. And, she said, there is a “massive amount of flood area” in this region’s unincorporated areas. “Twin Rocks, Idaville, Netarts, Hebo, Beaver, Cloverdale, Pacific City. And Neskowin. McGuire Dam is in there.” Driving the boost in premiums is the federal Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act, passed by Congress in 2012. The legislation calls for an end to subsidies that reportedly had kept flood insurance low on “pre-FIRM” structures, those that pre-dated the promulgation of Flood Insurance Rate Maps in the 1970s. Effective October 1, owners of those properties will see their premiums rise by 25 percent per year until they hit “full-risk rates” – a term that’s still undefined.

Those new “full-risk rates” take effect when property is sold, too. Yet new property owners won’t find out what those rates are until the flood insurance policy has to be renewed. What’s more, flood insurance policyholders in Rockaway Beach and unincorporated Tillamook County will see an additional premium hike because the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which runs the flood insurance program, is ending discounts that the city and county used to get for being part of FEMA’s Community Rating System. As a result, premiums will go up by an additional 15 percent in Rockaway Beach and by 20 percent in the unincorporated areas of the county. “Losing the discount is hugely significant for Tillamook County,” Taylor said. The county commissioners and county planner are frustrated, she added. That said, “Our legislators don’t give a hoot.” Compounding the confusion is the prospect of new flood insurance maps, to be issued by FEMA sometime in the next 12 to 18 months. The new maps, prepared using state-of-the-art LIDAR technology, may place people in flood zones who weren’t there before – forcing them to get flood insurance in order to sell a house or avoid

the foreclosure of a mortgage. “Neither real estate nor insurance agents are well informed about this,” Taylor reported. Tillamook County realtors were the first to bring Christine Shirley of the state Department of Land Conservation and Development here to talk about what was going on, Taylor said. “A lot of people are going on in blissful ignorance,” she said. Meantime, FEMA’s “retrograding” of the county’s Community Rating System is being appealed, said county community development director John Boyd. “What has happened is, we got a visit from FEMA and they threatened to do this ‘retrograde,’” Boyd said. U.S. Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, along with Congressman Kurt Schrader, sent a joint letter to FEMA on July 17 asking the agency to reconsider. No response has been received thus far, Boyd said. “I’m hoping we’ll be reconsidered and that FEMA will take it seriously.” Oregon’s Merkley plans on hearings this fall in Washington, D.C., said Tillamook County Commissioner Mark Labhart. Merkley is collecting data from property owners regarding the impacts they are facing from the insurance increases. (A Merkley staff member was at flood insurance presentations

July 29 at the Port of Tillamook Bay’s Officers Mess building.) “It’s quite discouraging to think what all this means to local farmers and businesses,” said Doug Olson, the owner of the Inn at Pacific City. “This issue could be the final straw for some businesses. “It’s probably best to live on a hill. But then you need good insurance for wind storms.” A key date was mentioned during the July 29 information sessions, Boyd said. Rates will go up October 1, and lenders and insurance companies will be sending out 45-day notices. “We should hear something August 15,” he said. In mid-August, the “coastal caucus” – the eight state legislators who represent the Oregon coast in Salem – will be holding their economic summit. “I’ll be going,” Taylor said. Flood insurance isn’t on the agenda, “but I believe it will be discussed,” she said. “It definitely will have a drastic effect on all economic zones.”

Electric car charging station planned for Rockaway Beach The same company that brought a one-of-a-kind car charging station to Tillamook is planning an identical setup in Rockaway Beach. President and CEO of EV4, Hans van der Meer said installation would begin sometime next year - probably around April. EV4 is a Portland-based company. Unlike most charging stations in the state, the EV4 station is capable of fast-charging electric cars in less than an hour. Plugged into a normal outlet, electric vehicles can take 10 hours to completely charge. EV4’s charging system, known as Energy Transfer Merchant or ETM, will charge people by the minute for a fast charge or by the hour for a slow charge. The system is designed with internal batteries so it can provide electric vehicles with a fast charge without needing

Fairview Grange ‘Grand Opening Bash’ Sat., Aug. 17 By Joe Wrabek

This Saturday, the Fairview Grange celebrates its re-opening with a “Grand Opening Bash” with food, music, and activities for kids and adults. The event happens at the Grange Hall, located just east of Tillamook at Third Street and Olson Rd., from 2 to 6 p.m. The public is invited.

They’ll have barbecued pork, quesadillas, various kinds of salads, and ice cream (no charge for the food, though a $5 donation is suggested), music by Eric Sappington and Joe Wrabek, face painting and puppet shows. Attendees can have their pictures taken in the Fairview Grange’s historic electric chair (the Grange was an early proponent of electrification). The Fairview Grange, chartered

in the 1890s, is the oldest surviving Grange in Tillamook County, and one of the oldest in the United States. (There are two other granges active in Tillamook County, at Sandlake and Mohler.) The Grange Hall on Third Street was built in 1916. The Fairview Grange had closed for a couple of years because of a declining and aging membership; it was revived earlier this year with an influx of new members.

Register now for 2013 Tillamook Bay Run by Sayde Moser

August 17 at 10 a.m. marks the official start of the 12th-annual Tillamook County Bay Run. Registration begins at 8 a.m. The fee is $35. As for the past two years, there will be a 10k trail run or a 5K trail run/ walk on the Bayocean spit, 3 miles west of Tillamook. The runners face a track with a variety of surfaces and scenery, including both wet and dry sand, gravel, hills, flats and trees. At the end of the trail, runners will be offered an

adult beverage from Pelican Pub. Sponsors include The Schooner in Netarts, which is donating clam chowder, as well as state Sen. Betsy Johnson and Stimson Lumber Co. “It’s their sponsorship that really makes it possible to put this run on for the community,” said Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce executive director Justin Aufdermauer. This year for the first time, the Chamber has partnered with the Tillamook High School cross country team and coach Patrick Zweifel to track the run

times from start to finish. Money raised will go to support the team. Prizes include $100 for top male and female finishers of the 10k, Blue Heron gift baskets for top male and female finishers of the 5k and random drawings made possible by local vendors. Last year, 198 runners showed up, making it the biggest year ever. But with 180 runners already registered, said Aufdermauer, this could be another record-breaking year. In previous years, he said, the race participants have roughly split 50-50

between local residents and visitors. This year, he said, three out of every four racers are from are from out of town. Runners can register up until the day of the event. Free t-shirts will be available to those who preregister.

Walker stays “smooth� winning his third straight Pig ‘N Ford World Title

Former Pig ‘N Ford Champions

Walker wins the World Title, but the faces in Pig ‘N Ford Racing will change shortly BY JOSIAH DARR Headlight Herald Sports

The Tillamook County Fair isn’t your average, everyday small town fair. Yes, there are rides, carnival games, families spending time together and an endless supply of greasy fair food. But, unlike other fairs around the country, Tillamook hosts the Pig ‘N Fords World Championship. A race so different and unique, USA Today has listed the Tillamook County Fair as one of the top 10 fairs in the country. The Pig ‘N Ford races are a huge contributor to that and this year’s races lived up to the hype. “This is the only race like it in the country as far as I know,� said Tillamook ModelT Club President Punk Dunsworth “It’s just one of those little things people around here look forward to and our club loves to do it. The races have been going for years and they’re easily one of Tillamook’s greatest traditions.� Like every year, the rules are simple. Every driver lucky enough to get one of the 10 coveted franchise spots in the Tillamook Model-T Club gives them the right to run a car in the World Championships. Their cars are thoroughly inspected pre and post race to make sure their classic T’s are only kicking out the allotted 22 horse power they come with stock. Once the cars are approved and the race begins it’s up to the drivers to run to the pig pens, get their pig out, crank start their Model-T, make a lap, switch pigs, make another lap, switch pigs again and eventually place their last pig back in the pen ending their race. The drivers who placed the highest throughout the weeks qualifying events are invited to the World Championship race on Saturday. The winner of the championship race earns the coveted first place trophy and gets to add family’s name on the list of champions. From year to year the drivers qualified for the champi-


From left, Marty Walker, Ben, Salo, John Haertel, Chris Hurliman and Bobby Wassmer race to the pens to start this year’s Pig ‘N Ford Championship race. Walker and Wassmer finished one and two this year, but racers’ long careers are coming to an end, opening the door for a youth movement in the near future. No. 4 and in the finals he was in pen No. 2. He just got screwed up.� It was a mistake that anyone could make and according to fellow racer and long time Model-T Club member Bobby Wassmer. “The disqualification was needed for fairness, but not was necessarily needed,� Wassmer explained. “The races have gotten so competitive that we had to do what was right, but if we hadn’t the Salo’s would have backed themselves out.� While the racers in the finals are some of the most experienced racers in the history of the event, they didn’t get all their experience on the track. With the franchises being passed down from one family member or friend to another, most the racers have been involved much longer than they’ve been on the track and a few of them have up-and-coming racers waiting in like to take their place. “My dad Dean started racing back in 1959 I believe and he won eight world titles himself,� said this year’s winner Marty Walker. “I’ve done it for

onship race changes, but this year there weren’t many surprises with some of the most veteran racers standing at the starting line when the race began. Bobby Wassmer, Chris Hurliman, John Haertel, Marty Walker and Ben Salo all vied for title in the final race. The five men have won a combined 17 titles between them making the last race an anticipated event. When the pigs were gathered, the laps driven and the final pig was placed in the pen, Marty Walker won his third straight Pig ‘N Ford World Championship and his 11th World Title since his first back in 1996. Finishing second in the race was 31-year veteran Bobby Wassmer followed by Chris Hurliman, John Haertel and Ben Salo. Salo actually finished the event in third place, but due to a violation of grabbing a pig from the wrong pen he was disqualified. “It was a honest mistake,� said former championship winner Ken Salo. “In the qualifying race just before the finals Ben was pen

about 30 years now and my boy Dillon will take it over from me in another two years.� Another racer in the championship looking forward to passing the torch to his son was Bobby Wassmer. “My son McKenzi is 15 years old and he basically did everything to prepare my car this year,� Wassmer explained. “I walked him through a few things, but he’s pretty much got it and he’s starting to get the hang of driving it a little bit too.� The Wassmers and Walkers have been going toe to toe in the Pig ‘N Ford races for decades, but both Bobby and Marty agree that while the race is extremely competitive, it’s going be even more fun for then when they watch their sons racing. “Bobby and I have gone at it for a long time, but I know both of us would rather see out sons winning than ourselves,� Walker said. “There is a learning curve and I’m sure the other veteran racers like Ben, Jake, Chris and Johnny will be schooling the kids for while, but it won’t be long until they get their titles.�

As for now, Walker is the reigning champion for three years in a row and according to Wassmer he’s not doing anything special. He’s just not doing anything wrong. “He’s very smooth and he doesn’t make mistakes,� Wassmer said. “He’s focused and he takes it one step at a time.� A statement like that is a truly a compliment coming form someone who’s been a top competitor for years and Walker knows that it’s his demeanor on the track that’s been key. “I take a tortoise and a hare approach to the race,� Walker explained. “Slow and steady with no mistakes wins the race. The track got faster all week, which us racers like, but there aren’t many opportunities to pass out there. You can’t win with one mistake because this race isn’t won and lost on the track. It’s won at the start. “I got lucky and got a good lane draw and I don’t get flustered. I’ll try and get my son to do the same thing because my time at the top is about over and I’m sure the rest of the Model-T Club is happy to see me go.�

Havoc Crew puts on another outstanding Demolition Derby Page A11 - Tillamook, Ore., Wednesday, August 14, 2013 - Headlight Herald

Twisted metal, backbreaking collisions, the sounds of a screaming crowd and the faint smell of burning rubber and gasoline are all part of what is possibly Tillamook County Fair’s wildest attraction: the demolition derby. On Saturday, Aug. 10, the final evening of the fair, demolition derby took over Averill Arena and ended the fair with a bang. This year the demolition derby featured 13 cars of all different makes and models, their drivers eager to be the last car standing at the end of the Trophy Dash races, the first two heats of the derby and the derby’s main event. The derby featured local teams and others from well outside of Tillamook County who came to get a taste of the derby. Tillamook’s Havoc Team puts the derby on and was happy to have any drivers as long as they had their cars customized for the derby’s strict rules. “Meeting all the rules and precautions with the cars was the hardest part about getting a car eligible,” said pit crewmember for the #15 car Tanner Repass. “Working on these is nothing like working on a regular car. The booklet of modifications required was so long I felt like we were never going to get to the end of it.” Some of the main requirements Repass is referring to are things like stripping the car of all glass, including all mirrors and tail lights. Everything inside the car must be taken out with the exception of the drivers seat. The gas tank must be removed and a small plastic tank much like what would be used for a trolling motor in a boat. That auxiliary tank is usually placed on the floor of the car where some riding in the back seat of the cars feet would be. It's also required that the drivers move the battery to the passenger side floorboard and they have to attach a door bar which is a solid piece of steel that goes across the drivers slide door to keep the door from being crushed against the driver. All of these custom requirements are time consuming to complete, usually taking most crews a solid month to get finished. Fortunately these safety precautions have kept the entire field from sustaining any seri-

ous injuries during the event in the last 20 years. “I’ve been running the derby for 16 years now and drove in it the first four years before that and there’s never been any major injuries other than the bumps, scrapes and stiff necks or stiff backs you’d get from a bunch of little car crashes in a row,” said derby organizer and head of the Havoc Crew James DeSwart. “I do want to thank Tillamook Ambulance, my tractor drivers, Netarts/Oceanside and Bay City Fire Departments for showing up just in case though.” The winner of this year’s three Trophy Dash races were Mike Mastergelo in the #00 car, Jeremy Spatz in the #111 car and Bill Hampton in the #88 car. The first derby heat ended with Dwane Waggerby in first, Jeremy Spatz in second, Stoney Lind in third and Willie McDonald in fourth. The second derby head ended with Bill Hampton in first, Ricky Burden in second, Noran Andrez in third and Josh Wilks in fourth. While there was plenty of paint traded the preliminaries, it was the main event everyone came to see. When it was all over, Mike Mastergelo from Banks outlasted Willie McDonald for the demolition derby title and the $1,000 grand prize. McDonald got $450 for second place, Bill Hampton took third, Duane Waggerby took fourth and Jeremy Spatz took fifth. This year’s cash prizes were more substantial due to Averill Recycling throwing some extra money into the pot, raising all the cash prizes. Overall, this year’s derby was another monumental success with the fans getting the show they were hoping for, the derby going off without a hitch, no one getting hurt and DeSwart couldn’t have been more pleased. “This derby went very smooth,” Deswart said. “The drivers did a great job building their cars and everyone seemed to have a good time. My Havoc Crew was a huge part of that by keeping the cars safe, helping with the judging and keeping everything in line.


Tillamook local and demolition derby first-timer Ricky Burden (middle, in blue) was named the derby’s Rookie of the Year.

Derby winner Mike Mastergelo brought the winning car down from Banks and came away with the first place trophy.

Backing into the front of the other cars to protect your motor and damage your opponents is standard operating procedure in any demolition derby.

Putting the “local” in our county’s food By Joe Wrabek

Taylor Larson came to Tillamook County a year ago as a R.A.R.E. (Resource Assistant for Rural Environments) intern, working for Food Roots. Larson’s background was in “food economics” and his main project here was to be a “community food assessment.” Larson was exploring where the food we eat in Tillamook County comes from, where the food we grow goes to, and how we might be able to keep both as local as possible. Larson’s internship ended at the beginning of August; he has moved back to the Eugene area, after completing his 50-plus page community food assessment report. It was presented recently to the Tillamook County Board of Commissioners. “The goal was to give people a starting place about what was going on,” Larson said, “some sort of a baseline.” He said that information now is available, although it has yet to be assembled in one location. Only 59 square miles of Tillamook County’s 1,133 square miles is being farmed, Larson said. And 90 percent of that is dedicated to “growing milk” – dairy cattle, or feed for daily cattle, at 106 dairies, 102 of which supply milk to the Tillamook County Creamery Association. In terms of dollars, Tillamook County’s farmland is the most productive in Oregon, he said. Each acre accounts for gross sales of more than $2,250. Tillamook County’s acres also are the most expensive ($6,236 each). That high land cost is “daunting for new farmers,” Larson said. As a result, over time, farms in Tillamook County have gotten fewer and they’ve gotten larger. And the average age of the county’s farmers has increased. Nonetheless, Larson said, there are opportunities here. His report cites several case studies of local farmers (most of them small) who

Taylor Larson. are making a living supplying the local market. That said, there is a dark side to the food system, too. The report notes that in the midst of that most productive farmland in Oregon, one in six families is living in poverty, 30 percent of the population is eligible for food stamps (though only half of them are getting food stamps), one in four senior citizens has trouble getting to a grocery store, and 70.1 percent of the students in the Nestucca School District (and 65.1 percent of NeahKah-Nie students, and 59.9 percent of Tillamook School District students) are eligible for free or low-cost school lunches. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has designated south Tillamook County a “food desert” because there are no big supermarkets, the report says.

On the other hand, the little locally-owned markets may be the best potential outlets for locallyproduced food, Taylor added. A big challenge is ensuring those local markets have a consistent supply, he said. Among the recommendations in the report: • Improve the “North Coast Food Guide.” The popular handbook of where to find locally-grown meat, fruit and produce exists only on paper. Put it online, the report suggests, and make it searchable. • Facilitate the buying of local food by schools, hospitals and restaurants. “Food hubs” may be necessary to replicate the distribution networks that big producers have. “I talked to a number of small farmers who said they can’t sell all the food they produce,” Larson said.

• Build the “capacity” – training, experience, technical assistance, land and tools – of local farmers. “Growing food on the North Coast is different from growing it in the Willamette Valley,” the report notes. • Increase the “food literacy” of consumers, so they better understand what’s involved in getting food from the farm to the plate. • Create a county-wide Gardens Network to share seed, resources and knowledge to boost local gardeners’ yields. • Address “infrastructure deficits.” The lack of a distribution network for local producers is a big such deficit, although not the only one. • Conduct an economic analysis of the impact of buying local food, as opposed to food produced outside the county.

• Create a food system coalition, like the Food Security Council that operated here from 2000 to 2006, which served as a framework for collaboration between public and private interests regarding food needs. • Engage the next generation. ”As our farmers, volunteers and leaders age, it is critical that we inform, invest and engage in the future, if we are to make lasting change in our food system,” the report said. Larson’s report has been provided to Food Roots, with additional copies at the North County Recreation District and the Kiawanda Community Center library in south Tillamook County. The Oregon Food Bank and Food Roots will have it online, Larson said. The report tries to be actionoriented, he said. “You can’t transform a food system overnight. What are the easy wins?” Over the long term, “you’ve got to have a sense of purpose about it,” he said. “What do people want to have Tillamook County look like in 20 years?” Some of the recommendations are already being implemented, Larson noted. “Food conversations” in Tillamook, Nehalem and Pacific City in 2012 and early 2013 brought together producers, distributors and consumers, and established some priorities for improving access to local food. (One outgrowth was the establishment of a new farmers market in Pacific City.) A “beginning farmer training” project is planned for next year on Port of Tillamook Bay land, using three huge “hoop houses.” Meantime, Larson said he plans to start his own small farm, something he’s wanted to do since serving in Zambia in the Peace Corps. “I’ll start with what I know and go from there,” he said. “I learned a lot in Tillamook County. Part of me wishes I were still sticking around. There is plenty to do here.”

More donations received for construction of ‘Hoop House’

Food Roots, a community food organization, is partnering with the Port of Tillamook Bay to develop and build three commercial hoop houses. A hoop house (also called a hoop greenhouse or hoophouse) is a greenhouse with a plastic roof wrapped over flexible piping. The POTB is taking the lead on project infrastructure and development of the three 30 X 96’ hoop houses. This project is part of the POTB’s FEMA Alternative Projects and is budgeted at $78,000. FEMA is providing 75 percent of the infrastructure cost. Food Roots is responsible for securing the 25 percent non-federal matching funds. Currently, with donations from the Larson Family Foundation of Lane County, the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund and the Samuel S Johnson Foundation, Food Roots has secured $7,500. “This is a very exciting project, good for our communities and our economy, and Oregon agriculture,” said Shelly Bowe with Food Roots. Construction is slated to begin next year. Food Roots will sign a contractual lease credit of one acre on the Hoop House in return for securing the matching funds. The goals of the project are

to “increase and diversify specialty crop production and expand specialty crop markets both locally and regionally in order to increase consumer access and grow the industry.” Specialty crops are fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, herbs and medicinal and ornamental plants. There are currently a number of markets that exist for these specialty crops, including Tillamook County Jail, Tillamook Bay Child Center, local restaurants and farmers’ markers. All three Tillamook County School Districts have expressed interest in serving specialty crops in their lunch programs. The Hoop House will address coastal specific product and varietal development, year-round and extended season production, production methods appropriate to the coastal region, agriculture innovations and new technologies. Beginning farmers and farm workers will be provided with resources, access to land, industry relevant place based training opportunities and linkages to waiting markets. The Hoop House project will provide ongoing economic benefits to the local food economy. New farmers will be better equipped, additional jobs will be created and a better work force will result.

Every baker should have a great cobbler recipe up his or her sleeve. Cobblers are quick, easy, delicious and impressive. You can make a big cobbler in a roasting pan for a family reunion or a garden party, a medium sized cobbler in a deep-dish pie pan or individual cobblers in oven-safe bowls or even mugs. There is something wonderful about the combination of juicy fruit and light, fluffy, biscuit-like topping. Serve a cobbler warm from the oven for brunch for a summertime treat your family will remember. Fruit cobblers can be made with any type of fruit, and they’re particularly good with several fruits/berries mixed. Fill the baking dish about 2/3 of the way full with fruit, and sprinkle with sugar to taste. For a 13x9 “ pan I like to use about a cup of sugar or less, depending upon the sweetness of the fruit; for a pie pan, half that amount. If I’m using rhubarb or something very tart, increase the sugar. If I am taking the cobbler to a party, I’ll mix 2 tablespoons of cornstarch into the sugar, (for a 13x9” pan) so the fruit juices will bind (and be less likely to spill in my car). If we’re staying home, I skip the cornstarch. Pro tip: if you’re using frozen fruit, cook the fruit and sugar without the topping until it’s hot. Spoon raw dough over hot fruit and bake. Otherwise, it will take forever for the topping to cook over frozen fruit. Cobbler topping: This is enough to top one 13x9” baking dish (you may have a little left over). The recipe can be cut in half for a smaller cobbler in a pie pan.

3 cups all-purpose flour 4 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 2/3 cup sugar 2/3 cup butter, cold, cut into chunks 2 cups half and half

Whisk dry ingredients together. With your fingertips, mix butter into flour mixture. Stir in half and half. Dough will be wet. Spoon dough onto fruit and bake at 350 degrees until fruit is bubbling and dough is cooked through in center of the dish. Bake cobbler on a large sheet of foil to catch bubbling fruit juice. If the top is brown and the topping isn’t done, lay a sheet of foil over the top to prevent further browning. A 13x9” pan will take an hour or more to bake.

Fifth Annual Muttzanita Festival event slated for Sept. 14 Canine-centric festival grows by leaps and bounds Only in this coastal village of dog lovers could a canine-centric festival grow by leaps and bounds every year for four years running. This year will mark the Fifth Annual Muttzanita Festival, scheduled for Sept. 14 at 144 Laneda Ave. in Manzanita, and sponsored by Four Paws on the Beach. “Ever since the first year, I have been amazed at the number of people attending our festival,” said Dan Nichols, who, with wife Barbara Nichols, owns Four Paws on the Beach and founded Muttzanita. “People and pets come out in droves to have a fun time and support a number of great local charities.” As with previous years, the event will feature exciting contests for you and your pet, including an expanded version of the ever-popular ChuckIt Toss. “We’ll have multiple runs this year,” said Nichols. Other Muttzanita favorites, including a pet parade through downtown Manzanita, and the big finale, the Pet Talent and Fashion Show, are also on tap. For those who prefer their fun on the sidelines, the festival will include a silent auction of quality items for bid as well as raffles. “Everyone who enters a contest will have a chance to win some fabulous prizes in our event raffles,” said Nichols. Muttzanita raises funds for local nonprofit organizations United Paws,

and four ounces. Baby Neymar’s grandparents are Gayle Pitt from Idaho, Trinidad Ramirez from Tillamook, Eleazar Hernandez from Tillamook and Eugenia Silva also from Tillamook.

Fenceposts NEHALEM



hat a terrific way to spend an evening at the Nehalem Bay State Park, seeing two plays over the weekend by the Original Practice Shakespeare (Because Shakespeare should be a little dangerous). Macbeth was on Friday, Aug. 2 followed by Comedy of Errors on Saturday, Aug. 3. Both started at 7 p.m. and ran about two and a half hours. The actors in the troupe receive their own lines and cues only, called from the First Folio, published in 1623. Texts preserve the original spelling, punctuation, capitalization, versification and other clues to actors. Each actor learned two to eight roles in each show and they constellate the cast differently for each performance, so every day’s show is unique.



he Oregon Tuna Classic is this weekend – Friday and Saturday, Aug. 16 and 17, at the Port of Garibaldi and Old Mill Marina. This is the ninth year of the event, which was started to raise food, and money to buy food, for the hungry – by fishing. The organizers and participants are donating their time – and catch – to the Oregon Food Bank. There are a lot of cash prizes (a lot of those get donated back, too). There’s fishing both days. Boats have to be checked in by 6 p.m. on Saturday and 5 p.m. on Sunday. On Friday, there’s “social hours” from 5 to 8 p.m., and on Saturday an awards banquet, 6 to 10 p.m. Last year, the Garibaldi

What they do differently is they do not rehearse the way a modern company would. It’s improv-ish style. Actors are only allowed to see their own cues and lines they never read the full play. So the action and narrative are as much of a surprise to them as they are to us the audience. They carry scrolls onstage with their lines on them. They have worked hard to memorize them, but when you’re saying lines for the first time with other actors, sometimes you need a safety net. This is why they have an onstage prompter, who is also the host for the evening. It’s their job to keep everything running smoothly. They also encourage the audience to get involved in the action. It’s almost a cross between a sport and a theatre piece. They play by the rules, practice their technique, but nobody knows what will happen in the game, until they get out there. I will try to find out when they will be coming again next year, because they are so worth seeing. A reminder about the North County Food Bank having their 18th annual Fish Fry at Saint Mary’s By the Sea church in Rockaway located at 275 South Pacific

St. They will be serving pan fried rock fish, corn on the cob, coleslaw, watermelon, cantaloupe, French bread, and your choice of beverage. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for children 10 and younger. You can pre-order your tickets to receive a dollar-off adult tickets. Get tickets and additional information by contacting Imie Camelli at 503-368-7848. Come and get to know the community better with the United Methodist Church. They are inviting everyone to come and have free ice-cream floats with them on Sunday, Aug. 18. from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the United Methodist Church parking lot at the corner of 10th and A Street in Nehalem. Come and have some fun with games and face painting while enjoying an ice-cream float and a visit. All ages are welcome and it’s fun and free. Call 503-368-5612 for more information. Happy Birthday this week to: Betty Nixon of Nehalem, George West of Nehalem, David Handler of Enterprise, Dawn Halverson of Nehalem, Lorenna MittsRemington of Myrtle Creek, Kendra Howard of Salem and Reaghan Lovelady of Hillsboro.

“leg” of the Oregon Tuna Classic (the other leg is in Ilwaco, Wash.) generated 6,355 pounds of tuna, which was processed and canned with the help of Tillamook Bay Boathouse and the Smiley Brothers. And in December, the Oregon Tuna Classic donated $20,000 to the Oregon Food Bank, too. Congratulations to the winners of the Garibaldi Adult Summer Reading Program drawing; Garry Gitzen won the dinner at Pirate’s Cove, Nora Coutant got the county fair tickets, and 10 backpacks will be donated to the “Tools for Schools” program in the name of Emmett Van Zandt. Thanks, everybody. The end-of-SummerReading Program for the kids will be Saturday, Aug. 17 (the party’s on Friday, Aug. 16), featuring magician/storyteller/balloon twister extraordinaire Jay Frazier. Also this Saturday is the “Step Back in Time” event, organized by Tillamook County’s museums – the Garibaldi Museum, the Pioneer Museum in Tillamook, and the Latimer Quilt Center, plus the Tillamook Air Mu-

seum and the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad. For one low fee, you get admission to the Garibaldi Museum, Pioneer Museum, and Latimer Quilt Center, and discounts on train tickets and admission to the Air Museum. You can get the “Step Back in Time” passes at any of the museums. And—hadn’t mentioned it before—the Garibaldi Museum’s silent auction Saturday, July 27, was a huge success. More than 100 people came to bid on unique and hard-to-find items that included a telescope, antique fishing gear, antique handcuffs, a model Coast Guard cutter, a quilt, and dozens of gift certificates. “We had anything for anybody,” museum manager Anna Rzuczek said. Among that “anything for anybody” was six “Taste of New England” gift baskets, put together by Anna’s family, who are from New England. Christie Zerfing won the Connecticut gift basket, Frances Hartwell walked away with the ones from Vermont, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and Emmy Lou Orahood got the gift baskets from Maine and New Hampshire.

Rinehart Clinic makes a ‘Big Splash!’





ommunity calendars were delivered last week from Nestucca Valley Lions’ Club. As usual, an insert listed the service organization’s financial contributions during the past year. Our Lions raised and distributed almost $5,000. Funds went to Nestucca High School Scholarships, glasses and hearing aids for the needy and the program that provides them, Nestucca’s field trip to the State Capital, Flags to display in Cloverdale and Pacific City, the annual Easter Egg Hunt, and Nestucca Elementary School’s Good Citizen awards. The Lions also donated countless volunteer hours for community causes; they’re recruiting new members. Call Sandy Hanneman, 503-965-6004.

hanks to Jim and Margaret Woodle for the following report on the Cape Meares Community Potluck held on Saturday, July 27.   Last month’s Cape Meares Community Potluck was held on the Ocean Front Lawn of the WoodleTaylor home. The theme was “Picnic,” a BYOC (bring your own chair) happening, and the weather was near perfect, “warm and windless.” The Woodle’s youngest son, David, flew in from Los Angeles to “produce” the event, which is his occupation in L.A. He erected a gazebo on the front lawn, outlined in lights, to serve as the center for the buffet supper provided by some 45 members of the community. A fire pit was also available for roasting Nathan’s Franks, and then S’Mores later in the evening. Several friends of his from Florida, Ohio and Portland also helped set up and joined in the evening festivities.     Other memorable events David has been involved with include a luncheon for Prince William and Kate during their visit to California, and a

cereal, canned vegetables, boxed macaroni and cheese, cup-of-soup, and toilet paper are especially depleted. Your donated items may be left with Barbara Taylor at Kiwanda Coastal Properties, 35005 Cape Kiwanda Dr. The office is the first building on the right after crossing the bridge to the west of the blinking light in Pacific City. For more information call 503-965-6255. Three Tillamook County Museums are teaming up with Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad to offer “A Step Back in Time” from 9- a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday, Aug.17. The one day event, created as entertainment for those not out on the ocean during Garibaldi’s Tuna Classic, costs $15; proceeds will be shared. For the cost of a ticket, participants can visit Tillamook Pioneer Museum, Latimer Quilt and Textile Center, Garibaldi Museum, and ride Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad. Participants age eleven and younger have free admission to the museums and will only need to pay $2.50 for the train ride. Tillamook Air Museum will be offering buy one/get one half off, ticket prices. East museum will host special events for the day. I appreciate Tom Goodwin letting us know that Cloverdale Garden Café will host “Cruise in Cloverdale,” a classic car and

motorcycle show, starting at 5 p.m. next Wednesday, Aug. 21. Besides hot rods and good eats, the event will feature tattoos and door prizes. Sponsors include: Philing Station, Robert Warren Trucking, Nestucca Valley Auto Parts and Thomas Goodwin Gallery. For more information call Tom, 503-329-8345. Last minute reminders regarding two Pacific City events previously covered in this space: A $5 taco salad lunch happens from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Wednesday, Aug. 14 at the Nestucca Valley Presbyterian Church.

library fund raising event for President Clinton sponsored by Barbara Streisand.   Jim and Margaret Woodle very much enjoyed having David visit with them during the month of July, and were happy he could share with the community.  He’s been involved in acting and modeling in L.A., as well, and even co-starred with Hillary Swank in a high school production of Hansel and Gretel in Bellingham, Wash. before Hillary left school as well. When he first went to L. A. he worked for the Hotel Bel-Aire in Hollywood.    The Nea-Rock Garden Club will meet at the La Mexicana restaurant for lunch at 11:30 a.m. on Aug. 21. Downstairs seating has been reserved for 15 people. A check on the number of people coming will be made closer to the Aug. 21.    We will carpool and (follow the leader) from La Mexicana restaurant to Rhonda and Terri Wright’s place on Sutton Creek Road. Then, go to Mike Randall’s at 4580 Alder Cove Rd W. and then around the corner to James and Barbara Billstines at 1830 Alder Cove Rd W.       Jane Dunn, Cape Meares Lighthouse Interpretive Gift Shop Store Manager reports that the Cape Meares Lighthouse is having a very busy year. More visitors than last year at this time even with the Cape Meares Loop Road being closed. Several improvements have been made at the lighthouse.

Painting outside is planned soon and the inside painting will be done after the lighthouse closes for the winter. The Interpretive Gift Shop is a good place to start your Christmas shopping ahead of time.   I went up the Cape Meares Loop Road to the slide area for the first time last week. Certainly deep crevices in the pavement and the gravel sliding down towards the ocean. I was surprised that the small Alders on both sides of the road were still intact and that is a good thing as it helps to stabilize the ground there. I had expected to see those Alders sliding down along with the gravel. Maybe there can be a solution to fixing the road at a higher location above where the slide is? Have to find out where the road is stable above the slide. And then there is no money for such a project. It was so great when the Cape Meares Loop Road was put in. I was at the dedication and so enthused to finally get this road completed. The old gravel Lighthouse Road only went to the lighthouse before the Loop Road was done. Only the Bayocean Road brought you to Cape Meares community in those days. There were always closers in the winter due to rock and mud slides and trees falling across the road. What a relief it was to have another way out of our community with the Cape Meares Loop Road. Wish we could get the road fixed somehow. I would feel much safer.

Timber/logging exhibition highlights the Wheeler clinic’s 100-year anniversary celebration Tracing its roots back to 1913 when Dr. Harvey Rinehart first came to Wheeler to work as a physician for the Wheeler Mill, The Rinehart Clinic celebrated its 100th anniversary with a community festival and timber/ logging exhibition acknowledging the clinic’s early connection to the timber industry. On hand at the familyfriendly birthday party for the clinic was another family, this one from Knappa with a logging tradition all its own. They presented an hour-long show featuring ax throwing, crosscut sawing, springboard chopping, log rolling and chainsaw sculpting. Jeff Skirvin, a top chain saw competitor and seasoned showman, captivated the crowd with his woodsy expertise in a variety of events with help from his wife and sons. The fun-filled afternoon,

To make your visit more enjoyable, a big screen high definition plasma TV and satellite radio have been added to enhance the dining room.

that included free hot dogs and birthday cake, was made possible with help from event sponsors: Stimson Lumber, Providence Health & Services, Manzanita Grocery & Deli, and Nygaard Logging. Along with the awards, dignitaries and the extended Rinehart family,

in attendance at the event was 99-year-old Jacoba Curtis, Dr. Harry Rinehart’s bus driver when he was in school, who related a story of him misbehaving and she having to kick him off the bus. That, however, was a long time ago. Mrs. Curtis also worked at the hospital in Wheeler the 1940s.

and amazing food, located in Hebo, on the corner of the scenic 101 Pacific Coast Highway and Highway 22 (Next door to the old Hebo Grade School). Stop in for a breakfast burrito smothered in made from scratch pork green chili. Try some hot cakes, made fresh every order. Oh and the Biscuits and Country Sausage Gravy, well simple words could not describe how my taste buds went back to great grandma’s table.

he North County Food Bank is having their 18th Annual fish fry Saturday, Aug 17. It will be at St Mary’s Hall from 12 to 6 p.m. Unless you buy ahead of time the adult tickets are $8 and kids $5 (10 and under). This is a wonderful event and everyone is welcome. For more information, or to prepay for your tickets, call Imie at 503-368-7848. Rich Riley pointed out that S.A.I. has some lovely flowers decorating their building but I had actually already noticed them. It truly does add a welcoming touch to our town. Good job Rodney and Kristine. Speaking of Rich, The Bay City Rockers will be at the Parks & Rec Friday night bonfire. Our very own Rich Riley is one of the performers. Let’s give them a warm welcome. Also, Kathy Brown informed me they still need glassware for the upcoming P & R Carnival in the Park. Be sure to drop your glassware off at the city hall. Laurie DeKlyen, director of the Parks & Rec Program, wants to remind us that the carnival will be on Sunday, Sept. 1. This wonderful community event is looking for lots of volunteers. They also need both adult and kid raffle prizes and sponsorships. If you’ve never been to our carnival, it is a treat. It reminds me of the carnival

vercast then sun breaks in the afternoon with some periods of scattered drizzle seems to be the forecast as of late. Just another week till I do Camp Hope and I really would appreciate a little consistent sunshine. It makes it so much easier to get the campers around when it is not raining. This is my wish for the five days starting Aug. 17. Have you ever felt like camping but still wanted all the comforts of home and more? I know of a perfect way for your dream to come true. Visit the business of the week, Yurt on the Bay. It is privately located and set on the edge of Tillamook Bay right here in Bay City. The Yurt is 500-square-feet of spacious and elegant surroundings capped with a clear dome through which you can watch the stars as you fall asleep. This area is also a bird watchers paradise whether you are gazing from the porch deck or sitting by a cozy fire at the fire pit watching the evening sunset. This is not a campground Yurt and everything has been designed for your comfort. What a romantic idea for an anniversary, honeymoon night, or a birthday gift. It is located at 4520 Salmon St. and is owned and operated by Diane Zink and

in the Pollyanna movie: the whole town is involved. It’s so wonderful. Other upcoming events are the Rockaway Beach Chamber of Commerce Arts and Crafts Fair, Aug. 23-25, the Race of Champions and the Meals for Seniors French Toast Breakfast, Aug. 31. There is no time to be bored this summer with all the activity going on this month. As these events come closer, I’ll let you know about them. Walking through the wayside recently, Dale and I noticed the bricks are engraved now and it seems to change for the better each day. Our two Martha Stewarts, Linda and Lynda, have put their heads together to really jazz it up. With their magic touch, it will soon be more of a source of pride for our community. Everything needs a women’s touch. I’d like to tell you a bit about our Meals for Seniors Program. They have been busy this summer making about 1,000 lunches for the North County Recreation District and 50 of these have been for a camp for autistic children that was held at the administration office building. These folks give their time and a bit of themselves to our community. Obviously, it’s not just for our seniors. And donations of time and/or money would be welcome. Steve and Jackie Hoefler have informed me that the Community Church has something to celebrate. Aug. 18 the church will be welcoming their new pastor, Sam Whittaker and his wife Rachel. The whole community is encouraged to come and meet them! “Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you- not because they are nice, but because you are.” That’s Rockaway Beach, “Sugar Coated!” Becky Smith. These amazing women will make sure your stay is a very enjoyable experience at an affordable price. Call 503-812-2283 or 503-377-0282 today for a reservation. I have personally seen this place and it is incredible. The Bay City Arts Center is presenting Victoria and Anthony Stoppiello as the Artist of the Month for August 2013. Their work will be Aug. 9 –28 by appointment. Contact for more information. State officials are urging caution as wildfire conditions become extreme. To reduce the risk of a wildfire around your home, fire officials suggest removing dead vegetation a minimum of 30 feet around your house. In most cases, trees and healthy plants do not need to be removed. However, trees should be pruned and grass kept short and green to keep fire on the ground and more manageable by fire crews. If you’re thinking of landscaping, ask your local nursery or OSU Extension agent about fire resistant plants. Homeowners should also keep access in mind for large fire trucks. Long driveways should be at least 12 feet wide, have 10 feet of vegetation clearance from the centerline out, and about 14 feet overhead. Large vehicle turnaround areas are critical for your safety as well as firefighter safety. A big thank you to Gary and Delaine Malsbury for contributing toothbrushes and toothpaste to the Camp Hope Campers. You are truly a blessing in our community. Have a great week and see you around town.

Take a little piece of home with you wherever you roam...

Dying in Oregon - taboo, or just well-educated?


y family loves me, I think. I’m in pretty good health, and I have enough to keep me from considering Poptarts as an entree. All in all, life’s not bad, except for one thing – unasked for advice. Aren’t you amazed by the number of people, maybe a neighbor, who can take time away from the Kardashians to tell you how to live and what to think? When my neighbors and their neighbors feel really strongly about advice, it’s called a taboo. If I break a taboo, I could be shunned, jailed, or stoned to death, strictly for my own good. Oedipus found he needed to stick a knife in his eyes because he had broken a taboo. He married Jocasta, his mother, even though he didn’t know it and she was a pretty hot babe who could have been a Kardashian if only she’d been born a couple of millennia later. My wife Joani and I were curious about one taboo. We ordered from Netflix a recent documentary about


doctor-assisted suicide, How to Die in Oregon, made legal in 1994 and in Washington in 2008. Maybe it’s the rainfall. More than 500 Oregonians have bought that last prescription to help them, in Jim Morrison’s words, “break on through to the other side.” It’s usually 100 capsules of Seconal, $150, covered by most medical plans. I wonder what tactics they can resort to if you don’t pay. The capsules are taken apart and the powder mixed with six ounces of room temperature water. A shot of Grey Goose is optional. If you have any last words,

best keep it short. It takes only 90 seconds before you stop worrying about the Kardashians. Roger Sagner was the 343rd person to end his life in this manner. He downed the cocktail and said in the minute he had left, “I’d like to thank the wisdom of the voters of the State of Oregon for allowing me of my own volition to solve my own problems. Tell the next person it tastes woody but it was easy.” Sue Porter is a volunteer for a group called Compassion and Choices. She assists the majority of those who use the law. She says they have to sign a paper that says they request a prescription to end life and they are of sound mind, which I guess eliminates me. It has to be witnessed by two others. Sue asks two questions. Would you like to change your mind? If you drink this, do you understand what it will do? Gordon Green was having one small heart attack after another. He said his father spent his last 12 years

stroke-paralyzed. Gordon said he didn’t want to go that way. “If I don’t go in my sleep, I’ll wash the prescription down with a good, cold beer.” When he picked up the prescription, the pharmacist said, “Have a nice day!” Most of the film followed the last nine months of Cody Curtis, 56, a wife, mother, hiker, and gardener. A year earlier her cancer-ravaged liver stopped working and she ballooned to twice her size. Bedridden and incontinent, her blocked liver forced bile to ooze through the pores of her skin. Extensive chemo gave back her health, but terminal cancer returned. Referring to what she had gone through, she raised her model’s high cheekbones and said, “Never, ever again.” If my neighbors meet me in town and want to tell me how wrong I was to explore this issue, I’ll suggest they save it for the Kardashians, who’ve, I suspect, broken enough taboos to keep them occupied through the next TV season.

Oregon Coast Dance Center offering dance scholarships Oregon Coast Dance Center (OCDC), located in Tillamook, has opened up their dance scholarship application period for their 2013/2014 season. The scholarships (available for one male and one female recipient) are open to any current or aspiring dancer and include a year’s tuition for one class, as well as one costume for said class. Scholarship applications can be found on OCDC’s website, www., or picked up at the studio during open hours. Completed applications are due Aug. 23. The male scholarship is supported by the Cary Josi Dance Scholarship Fund, in memory of Cary Josi, a beloved teacher and student at OCDC who danced with her son, Chris. Chris was also a student and eventually became an assistant teacher with OCDC. The partnering of Cary and her son gave inspiration to many parent/ student dances along the way. When it was time for Chris to perform his senior solo, he left a loving image in the hearts of all, as he and his mother danced together in “Will you still need me when I’m 64.” It was always Cary’s hope that more boys would take an interest

in dance and this scholarship, in her memory, will keep her dream alive.

The female scholarship is provided by Oregon Coast Dance Center.

NOTICE TO RESIDENTIAL TENANTS

The property in which you are living is in foreclosure. A foreclosure sale is scheduled for November 13, 2013. The date of this sale may be postponed. Unless the lender that is foreclosing on this property is paid before the sale date, the foreclosure will go through and someone new will own this property. After the sale, the new owner is required to provide you with contact information and notice that the sale took place. The following information applies to you only if you are a bona fide tenant occupying and renting this property as a residential dwelling under a legitimate rental agreement. The information does not apply to you if you own this property or if you are not a bona fide residential tenant. If the foreclosure goes through, the new owner will have the right to require you to move out. Before the new owner can require you to move, the new owner must provide you with written notice that specifies the date by which you must move out. If you do not leave before the moveout date, the new owner can have the sheriff remove you from the property after a court hearing. You will receive notice of the court hearing. PROTECTION FROM EVICTION IF YOU ARE A BONA FIDE TENANT OCCUPYING AND RENTING THIS PROPERTY AS A RESIDENTIAL DWELLING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO CONTINUE LIVING IN THIS PROPERTY AFTER THE FORECLOSURE SALE FOR: THE REMAINDER OF YOUR FIXED TERM LEASE, IF YOU HAVE A FIXED TERM LEASE; OR AT LEAST 90 DAYS FROM THE DATE YOU ARE GIVEN A WRITTEN TERMINATION NOTICE. If the new owner wants to move in and use this property as a primary residence, the new owner can give you written notice and require you to move out after 90 days, even though you have a fixed term lease with more than 90 days left. You must be provided with at least 90 days’ written notice after the foreclosure sale before you can be required to move. A bona fide tenant is a residential tenant who is not the borrower (property owner) or a child, spouse or parent of the borrower, and whose rental agreement: Is the result of an arm’s length transaction; Requires the payment of rent that is not substantially less than fair market rent for the property, unless the rent is reduced or subsidized due to a federal, state or local subsidy; and Was entered into prior to the date of the foreclosure sale.

SECURITY DEPOSIT You may apply your security deposit and any rent you paid in advance against the current rent you owe your landlord as provided in ORS 90.367. To do this, you must notify your landlord in writing that you want to subtract the amount of your security deposit or prepaid rent from your rent payment. You may do this only for the rent you owe your current landlord. If you do this, you must do so before the foreclosure sale. The business or individual who buys this property at the foreclosure sale is not responsible to you for any deposit or prepaid rent you paid to your landlord. ABOUT YOUR TENANCY AFTER THE FORECLOSURE SALE The new owner that buys this property at the foreclosure sale may be willing to allow you to stay as a tenant instead of requiring you to move out after 90 days or at the end of your fixed term lease. After the sale, you should receive a written notice informing you that the sale took place and giving you the new owner’s name and contact information. You should contact the new owner if you would like to stay. If the new owner accepts rent from you, signs a new residential rental agreement with you or does not notify you in writing within 30 days after the date of the foreclosure sale that you must move out, the new owner becomes your new landlord and must maintain the property. Otherwise You do not owe rent; The new owner is not your landlord and is not responsible for maintaining the property on your behalf; and You must move out by the date the new owner specifies in a notice to you. The new owner may offer to pay your moving expenses and any other costs or amounts you and the new owner agree on in exchange for your agreement to leave the premises in less than 90 days or before your fixed term lease expires.
