PUD Cleaner air from ‘cow power’ rates rising

New digester under construction at Misty Meadow Dairy BY ERIN DIETRICH

edietrich@countrymedia.net

TILLAMOOK – Construction is nearing completion on Farm Power Northwest’s second manure digester facility, located at the Misty Meadow Dairy. The project will help clear the air and generate environmentally friendly “cow power.” Tillamook PUD anticipates construction to be complete in October. While the land the digester stands on is owned by the Hogan

The Tillamook People’s Utility District Board of Directors last week approved the first reading of an average six-percent rate increase, to take effect Oct. 1. A second reading of the proposed increase – which will make the change final – is set for Aug. 28. The increase is across the board for residential, industrial and commercial customers. For residential customers, the monthly base fee will increase from $16 to $19. Usage rates will increase from 6.7 cents per kilowatt hour, to 6.9 cents per kilowatt hour. Jim Martin, finance manger for PUD, said the average residential customer uses an average of 1,300 kilowatt hours a month, for an average bill of $103.10. Under the new fees, that same bill will increase to $108.70.

family, who run the Misty Meadow Dairy, the facility is funded and owned by Farm Power, the Skagit Valley, Wash. company that also built the now up-andrunning digester located on McCormick Loop Road. This new digester will create electricity from manure exclusively from the Hogans’ dairy. One pipeline will lead to the digester from the farm’s enormous manure holding tank, located along Oregon Highway 6, the

east entrance to Tillamook. In addition to generating electricity to be sold to Pacific Power, the digester will have the benefit of reducing the dairy’s manure odor, which often greets travelers as they first arrive over OR 6. Farm owner Dan Hogan did not return calls for comment, but Farm Power partner Daryl Maas said, “He’s very aware that he’s on the edge of a city... He’s well aware of the odor issue.”

SCENIC CELEBRATION

Fair Board hires new manager BY SAMANTHA SWINDLER sswindler@countrymedia.net

Miranda Muir has been hired as the new manager for the Tillamook County Fair. Muir’s experience comes from the Sangamon County Fair in New Berlin, Ill., where she has volunteered for 17 MIRANDA years and MUIR served as assistant fair secretary. “My grandfather served on the board of our local county fair for more than 30 years, and at a very early age instilled in me the outstanding values that make fairs unique, family oriented and community focused events,” Muir wrote in her application to the Fair Board. “I remember the summer I was first allowed to work in the office and how extremely proud I was to be an ‘official’ part of the fair family.” Eileen Aufdermauer, who has served as Tillamook’s interim fair director, said the board received 12 applications for the fair manager position – specifically, the board was targeting applicants with prior fair experience. The board conducted video-chat interviews with three candidates, and brought two into Tillamook for a face-toface conversation. Muir was the unanimous choice by the board. She begins her duties Oct. 1. “Miranda is fresh, young and energetic,” said Fair Board President Rita Hogan. “She has some wonderful ideas and the board is excited to have her as a part of our team.”

Nestucca gets National Water Trail designation BY MARY FAITH BELL mfbell@countrymedia.net

PACIFIC CITY – Tillamook Estuaries Partnership (TEP) threw a party Aug. 17, at Bob Straub Park, and a hundred people showed up with 75 personal watercraft to paddle the Nestucca River. The flotilla of kayaks and paddle boards, canoes and a single inflatable craft took to the water in celebration of the Nestucca River’s recent designation as a national water trail. Paddling enthusiasts and TEP supporters came from all over the Northwest to participate in the celebration, ribbon cutting dedication and exploration of the Nestucca estuary. In her remarks to the assembled group before the ribbon cutting, Lisa Phipps, TEP’s executive director, noted that the economic benefits to the region from the national water trail designation had already begun; there were at least 25 people present who had traveled from out of town, stayed in local motels and eaten in local restaurants in order to paddle the Nestucca.

Tillamook band marching forward, for the first time in decades BY MARY FAITH BELL mfbell@countrymedia.net

For the first time in several decades, Tillamook High School is going to have a marching band. Last week, band members met at the high school for marching band day camp. In just four days, the band learned to march on the field in formation while they play. On the fourth day, they performed for their families – and they looked and sounded great. Band Director Robert Lee, in his second year leading the high school band, had so much success with the high school pep band last year that he wanted to start a marching band. But Mr. Lee (that’s what the students call him) is from Alaska, where they don’t have marching bands in schools; it’s way too cold. So Lee enlisted help

from the Oregon State University Extension Office, which provided invaluable assistance with organizing the camp, securing both funds and visiting instructors from OSU. Tillamook students learned to march under the expert leadership of the Director of Athletic Bands at OSU, Dr. Brad Townsend, and two other OSU bandleaders, Robyn Chapman, the assistant director of athletic bands, and Greg Smatlan, assistant director of percussion. Smatlan is a freshly minted bandleader. He was a member of the OSU marching band last year, and the Tillamook marching band camp was his “first ever official teaching gig,” he said. Smatlan led the percussion section.

Nehalem glassblowers turn to Kickstarter BY LEEANN NEAL For the Headlight Herald

NEHALEM – A father-andson glassblowing team recently turned to online crowdfunding vehicle Kickstarter to promote sales of a new lamp line and raise money for supplies to make more. “We wanted to try a Kickstarter project just to do it,” said Roger Crosta, who, with son Trevor, operates Scavoglass in a studio in the Nehalem area. “It seemed like a great way to show people the (process) and get some more exposure. It’s tough to be an artist these days, so you do whatever you can. And Kickstarter is a source of inspiration all on its own. There are some excellent creative projects happening there.” Kickstarter.com was created to help people raise money for creative projects. In exchange for a pledged amount of money, donors are given nonmonetary incentives, such as a T-shirt, a copy of an album produced, or, in this case, a piece of glass art. The idea is called “crowdfunding.” Other crowdfunding sites such as Indiegogo, Crowdtilt, AngelList, Crowdfunder and SecondMarket all offer a platform for raising capital, in exchange for a percentage of the funds raised. The Crostas launched their Kickstarter campaign on Aug. 8 in an effort to raise $5,000 to purchase raw materials and equipment to help put the Orion model of their Scavo lamps into production. Scavo, said Roger, is a “little-known and highly difficult Venetian glassblowing technique that results in giving a blown glass object the appearance of an artifact dug up after centuries.” The word “scavo,” he added, is Italian for “unearthed.” Roger, who began glassblowing in the late 1990s, became interested in the Scavo process when he saw an old

piece of Scavo glass from the 1920s and became fascinated by its appearance. “It looked more like pottery than glass,” he said. “So I found a basic recipe and began using it on my pieces. I had a really strong response from buyers, so I committed to doing only Scavo glass from then on. It’s an amazing process. It’s very simple to apply, but it makes the glass very difficult to blow. You can’t use traditional tools to shape the glass because it ruins the effect, so Trevor and I have to make the shapes using only breath, gravity, and centrifugal force. So our glass has

a very unique look to it.” The Crostas are two of a handful of glassblowers in the U.S. who work strictly in the Scavo process. They sell their work internationally. The Orion lamp is a more modern version of a table light designed in 1925, said Roger. “I designed the first (Orion) lamp last year. It was hard to get the hardware just right,

because we’re combining exotic woods and patinas with the glass, so I just kept working on it.” Once the Orion design was finalized, the Crostas turned to Kickstarter in hopes of raising enough money to begin production. “Launching the campaign took a lot of time and focus,” said Roger. “You can do it pretty much any way you want, but it’s important to have a good video and a clear vision

of what it is you’re trying to present. We worked on it for a month, but it was also about just getting our business more organized and marketable. Some of the Kickstarter projects are fairly big productions done by teams of professionals, but we had to do everything ourselves, so it was difficult. But when we do our next one, it will be easy. We’ve got it dialed in now.”

The Crostas have until 2:59 p.m. on Sept. 7 to reach their goal of $5,000, or, in Kickstarter fashion, the money will be returned to those who pledged it. Also in Kickstarter tradition, the Crostas have promised certain unique items to those who pledge. For instance, a pledge of $350 or more guarantees the pledger a first edition of the Orion lamp. They will give away other items, including a Scavo Glass Fishing Float, for smaller pledges. As of mid-August, the Crostas were “in the early stages of the campaign,” said Roger. “We have backers making pledges, and we’ve had an amazing amount of feedback already, which is extremely valuable when you’re running your own business.” In addition to Orion lamps, the Crostas make wall sconces, chandeliers, and Ikebana (Japanese flower arranging) vessels.

The Pet Parade along Laneda Ave. kicks off festivities at Muttzanita on Aug. 18.

Dogs’ day in Manzanita MANZANITA – The fourth annual Muttzanita event attracted a throng, despite a bit of rain, to downtown Manzanita on Saturday. “The first year, the weather was perfect. The second year, it was cold and foggy. It was hot the third year, so we had to have rain,” said Muttzanita organizer Dan Nichols, who, along with his wife, Barb, own Four Paws on the Beach. Though Mother Nature didn’t completely cooperate, things went “pretty darn well,” said Nichols of the Aug. 18 event. He estimated a best-ever crowd of 250 people who participated in the Pet Parade that kicked off the day’s activities. Entries came from as far away as Maryland and Mexico. “We had an international event this year,” Nichols noted. While the dollar amount raised for United Paws, the Rotary Club of North Tillamook County, and Starry K-9s is still being tallied, Nichols thinks it will be as good as last year, if not better. The 2011 Muttzanita raised more than $6,500 for charity. “Most of those dollars came from the local community…it was amazing.”

Public meeting to discuss removal of tsunami sirens MANZANITA – The Emergency Volunteer Corps of Nehalem Bay will host a discussion of the county’s siren warning systems Thursday, Aug. 23, starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Pine Grove Community House. The topic – “Beyond Sirens” – will address the emergency warning efforts to be used once the beach sirens are decommissioned early next year. Tillamook County’s beach sirens were initially installed to warn citizens and visitors of an imminent threat by a tsunami. New research has determined that tsunamis caused by distant (Japan, Alaska, South America) earthquakes would take several hours to arrive, would only affect the beaches, and would give local authorities plenty of time to warn people to clear the beaches. A local, and much more dangerous, tsunami – caused by a rupture of the Cascadia Subduction Zone just off the coast – would be preceded by a very large earthquake that would provide more than sufficient warning to the whole populace. That quake would also likely cut off electrical power and topple the siren poles. Everybody

in the inundation zones would have to head to high ground assembly sites immediately. The Aug. 23 meeting will feature presentations by Patrick Corcoran, Coastal Hazard Specials Oregon State University; Gordon McCraw, Tillamook County Emergency Management Director; Michael Soots, Tillamook County Siren Specialist; and Mark Labhart, Tillamook County Commissioner. Refreshments will be provided and the EVC will have emergency kit items on hand for purchase. Questions about the siren meeting can be referred to Linda Kozlowski at 503-7995550.

Association for the Performing Arts is renovating its theater in hopes of making every seat feel like “the best seat in the house.” “Recently the TAPA Board of Directors decided to spend money in its building fund – money that has been raised through fundraisers and donations – to improve the seating situation,” said Christian Chiola, TAPA Board president. TAPA bought the former Barn Bar & Grill, located at the corner of 12th and Ivy, about 12 years ago, said Chiola. The group oversaw renovations to the rechristened Barn Community Playhouse to remove the kitchen and add platforms with folding chairs for patrons. “They weren’t very comfortable for sitting a long time.” TAPA commissioned more improvement projects over the years to “make the building more of a theater and to enhance audience comfort, but there was a section of seats that were in a ‘pit,’” said Chiola. “They were all on the same level and under a balcony. There was a post, and the view was

“Every other row is higher than the row in front, creating a stadium seating effect,” he added. “Changing all of this will give every seat in the theater a great view of the stage. The old seating arrangement had a lot of obstructed view seats and cramped quarters.” Lisa Kendall, who owns the Middle Way Health Care clinic in Tillamook, donated the new seats, which, said Chiola, are actual theater seats. “They are a lot more comfortable than the folding chairs. These actually have a thick cushion and arms.” In fact it was Kendall’s donation of seats that “kicked off this whole remodel project and made it possible,” said Chiola. The renovated theater will debut on the opening night of TAPA’s “A Fine Monster You Are,” Oct. 12. “We are planning a big opening night extravaganza,” said Chiola.

Monkey Puzzles: Strange trees from Chile to Pacific City BY MARY FAITH BELL mfbell@countrymedia.net

PACIFIC CITY – Monkey Business 101 plant nursery in Pacific City recently attracted the interest of world-traveling ecologist Bruce Byers, who was researching Monkey Puzzle trees in South America. In the process of his research, Byers did a Google search of Monkey Puzzle trees, and he was amazed to find Monkey Business 101 plant nursery on the Oregon coast in his search results. Barbara Brown, owner/operator of Monkey Business 101, specializes in the ancient and unusual Monkey Puzzle trees native to the Andes, ‘Araucaria araucana.’ She grows them from seed and sells five to six year old juvenile trees, shipping them to 23 states. In the seven years she’s been in business, Brown has become an expert in the propagation and care of Monkey Puzzles. Brown describes Monkey Puzzle trees as “Dr. Seussian, bizarre evergreens with reptilian branches and sharp needles covering the branches like armour.” The trunks are straight and true. Old Monkey Puzzle trees in their native habitat shed their lower branches and resemble hundred foot umbrellas. Her customers refer to her as the “Monkey Puzzle Doctor.” Brown keeps in touch with her far-flung customers and helps them care for their trees, offering remote diagnoses and advice if one of her progeny trees is failing to thrive. But on the whole, they do thrive, and as a result Brown’s Monkey Puzzles are growing across the country. In addition to being a local business owner, Brown is a beloved local character, known for wearing a Santa suit and standing on the roadside waving to passersby on 101. Brown made a presentation on Monkey Puzzle trees at the Tillamook library Aug. 20. On his return trip from Chile, Byers made a stop in Oregon to visit Monkey Business 101 and meet Barbara Brown, and to satisfy his

Monkey Puzzle forests in their native Chile, recently photographed by Bruce Byers, Ph.D.

curiosity about the Pacific City site he described as “probably the most Monkey Puzzles growing anywhere in the world, outside of Chile or Argentina.” Byers was on an ecological field trip in Chile, traveling in the footsteps of the famous American naturalist John Muir, when he discovered Monkey Business 101 via Google. “Few people know that John Muir – nature writer, champion of Yosemite, and a founding father of the American environmental movement and of our system of national parks – traveled to South America in 1911, alone at the age of 73, seeking Araucaria araucana, the so-called Monkey Puzzle Tree, in its native forests on the slopes of the volcanoes of central Chile,” said Byers. Muir kept a journal and made detailed sketches of his trip to Chile to see the Monkey Puzzle trees; one hundred years later, Byers, an international conservation and natural resources management consultant, “began making plans to try to find and rephotograph the places where Muir saw and sketched Araucaria araucana.” In a feat of ecological detective work Byers picked up Muir’s 100-year-old trail,

and even found Muir’s campsite, from which Muir sketched Monkey Puzzle trees which are still standing, “and in doing so (we) brought Muir’s last journey to the light of day,” wrote Byers. “We walked the same rocky volcanic ridge that he followed, with its weird and wonderful old umbrella Arau-

carias. We listened to voice of the ‘brawling bouldery stream’ in Ruca Choroy beside which he must have camped. We can now share images of those views, those trees, that stream, that ridge he sketched.” Byers shared his story and photos of the Monkey Puzzle forests in Chile when he visited Barbara Brown’s nursery in Pacific City. He contrasted photos of the towering trees in their native habitat, as big as old growth Douglas firs, with Brown’s tender, young specimens, and he marveled at the tree’s adaptability. Monkey Puzzle trees have existed for 60 to 100 million years. In their native habitat they live only on the slopes of the central volcanoes in the Andes of Chile and Argenti-

na. They are the national trees in Chile, where they are protected. There are some nice specimens in Tillamook in an eastside neighborhood near the middle school. There are also some outstanding Monkey Puzzle trees in Portland, which can be dated back to the 1905 Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition World’s Fair. A Chilean emissary to the World’s Fair brought Monkey Puzzle seedlings and distributed them to Portlanders. Those trees are now arboreal icons in the Rose City, and if Barbara Brown has her way, a hundred years from now the trees she has started from seed will bear witness to her passion for the Monkey Puzzle.

TILLAMOOK –Tillamook County Narcotics Team (TNT) Detectives, with the assistance of Oregon State Police Troopers, executed a felony arrest warrant on Kase Harley John KASE KRUMWIEDE Krumwiede during a traffic stop on SR131 near KTIL on Thursday. Krumwiede was wanted for a felony probation violation when he was observed as a passenger in a vehicle traveling eastbound toward Tillamook. Officers located more than a quarter ounce of methamphetamine and 3 grams of heroin and prescription narcotics in Krumwiede’s pocket when he was taken into custody. A drug scale, packaging material, drug records, a knife and a loaded .380 semi-automatic pistol was then found in Krumwiede’s backpack. “Kase Krumwiede is a convicted felon with convictions for delivery of heroin, possession of methamphetamine, eluding police, assault, burglary and being a felon in possession of a firearm,” said Tillamook County Sheriff Andy Long. “He’s only been out of prison for about two months.” In addition to the felony warrant, Krumwiede was arrested for felon in possession of a firearm, felon in possession of a restricted weapon, possession of heroin, delivery of heroin, possession of methamphetamine, delivery of methamphetamine, and possession of a controlled substance – Schedule 2. “Kase Krumwiede has a history of attempting to elude police officers, we are just glad he was taken into custody without any incident,” Long said.

READERS’ OPEN FORUM SPEEDBUMP United Paws finds 78 ‘forever’ homes this year Referring to Caley Groen’s excellent letter of Aug. 8, “Shame on those who tossed kittens from car,” I should like to reiterate the role of United Paws in finding good homes for kittens. While the group started work in 2003 as a spay/neuter organization to humanely prevent unwanted kittens and puppies, we soon became a rescue and adoption nonprofit also. So far this year alone, United Paws has found caring, “forever” homes for 78 kittens. We also spay, neuter, and foster dogs and puppies. If you’re financially disadvantaged and need help with the spay/neuter of your pets or if you need help spaying and neutering free-roaming cats in your neighborhood, call the United Paws hotline, 503-842-5663, BEFORE unwanted kittens or puppies come along. We run monthly adoption events, which are always advertised in the Headlight Herald; or you can adopt any time by contacting United Paws online at unitedpaws.org. If you’d like to foster kittens, which is such a rewarding experience, please contact us. Our current volunteers are wonderful, special people who open their homes to unwanted pets, but they are very few, we cannot clone them, so we need lots more! Christine Watt Co-Founder United Paws of Tillamook

Shame on grave defilers Shame, shame, were you raised by wolves? There is no excuse for parking your vehicles on the graves at the cemetery across the street from the Fairgrounds. Shame on you. Your tire tracks are still there, embedded in the soil. On top of the caskets. Shame. M.S. Hanenkrat Tillamook

Parking atop gravesites at cemetery ‘tacky’ I was looking forward to having a wonderful time at the Tillamook County Fair on Saturday. We headed in, taking the Wilson River Loop Road. We crossed Hwy. 6 on our way to Third Street. All of a sudden we looked to our right at the IOOF and we were amazed, confused and otherwise taken aback!

Blue ribbons still, at 98 years old Mother, Nina Clark, 98 years old, and daughter Jinni Bobick, 73 years old, entered the Tillamook County Fair this year. They entered Afghans, potholders, table runners and pillow cases, either embroidered or crocheted. Between them they won 13 ribbons; six first place – three for Nina, three for Jinni, four second place, all by Nina, and three third place, again by Nina. The total number of items entered was 14. This is Nina’s third year entering and winning, but Jinni’s first year. Both are extremely proud of each other, and I am overly proud of them both as the fourth generation. Jinni has convinced my daughter (the fifth generation) to create something for next year’s fair. Each day she changes her mind on what to enter, but we will enter something all together, God willing. Congratulations to Great Grandma Nina and Grandma Jinni! Aleysha Lloyd Tillamook

Exercise your right to vote Your vote is important! America is the greatest country in the world because every two, four or six years we get the privilege to vote for our elected officials, and the difference between the candidates does make a difference. Yet 50 percent of the people throw their ballots away. We have fought wars for more than 200 years to have this privilege. Good men and women have died and are continuing to die to protect us and our democracy. When Americans don’t vote they are saying, “these people died in vain.” Exercise your right, your privilege and vote. William Spidal Nehalem

There were people who were obviously not willing to pay the $5 fee to park and support the fair. They chose instead to park on top of someone’s grave in the cemetery. “Tacky” was all I could think! With no thought for the families of Tillamook who might have a relative laid to rest there, shame on those who parked their cars there! Lee Hohman Bay City

READERS’ OPEN FORUM Hospital helped fill forgotten medications Last Thursday afternoon we arrived to Tillamook for a short visit with friends. I had forgotten one of my bags, the most important one with all my meds in it. I was so upset. I need them every day. My friend called Tillamook County General Hospital Emergency and talked to Rich. Then I talked to Rich and gave him the information he asked me for. He then called my doctor in Redding, Calif. and got the OK to fill and more information. Then he called my pharmacy in Redding and got more information. Then he called me back and said we could get the prescriptions in about 15 minutes. I went to the hospital pharmacy and the pharmacist came to me and handed them to me. I will never forget these two young men. They were so thoughtful and kind to me. I can’t thank them enough. I am so grateful. Ellen M. Dart Redding, California

‘Wormhole’ turnip didn’t deserve first prize I’ve attended the Tillamook County Fair for more than 65 years. I like to think I’m compassionate and open-minded, but the actions of those who control the heartbeat of the best fair in the state has let me down. I’m perplexed at the judgment of vegetables and flowers. Maybe a visual list of the required criteria nailed to the wall of each display area will explain why a turnip with numerous wormholes placed first while next to it is a perfect turnip not receiving any recognition. Or the beautiful flower bouquet placed in a delicate vase, rated nothing while a “bunch” crammed into a discarded jar took all the oohs and aahs according to the judgement. The courtyard stage has served as a wonderful attraction of entertainment while folks meet with families, neighbors and alumni. Our Thursday pioneers can happily attest to that fact, but this year I watched as many folks left the courtyard while the stage was used as a pulpit. Inspirational singing is a delight, but preaching between songs is unacceptable for a fair that advertised “Party ‘til the Cows Come Home.” If this entertainment is to be encouraged, then express an open mind and strut out all of Tillamook’s denominations. Better still, forget the preaching and send out the fiddlers. I experienced the new disability ramp. The ramp to the left of the Pavilion is excellent but I was shocked at the condition of the ceiling tiles, the main ceiling beam with its huge cracks streaking its length and

the floor. The dangerous condition of the floor was recognized by red tape warnings. If this was my attic I wouldn’t allow my grandkids to play there. If it were my home the county would condemn it. I realize there is little money, although some of the concession food prices could build a barn in a day, but maybe now that both cow and horse barns are completed, they can help build, through raising funds, a new pavilion. Our great fair needs a lot of help if it’s to remain the “best in the state.” A turnip riddled with wormholes – really? Jeanie Ferguson Nehalem

Keep online comments to the subject at hand While trying to read people’s comments on letters to the editor, I find it very irritating that some find it necessary to get totally off the subject being discussed. You banter back and forth about stuff that makes no sense to anyone but yourselves. Go to Facebook and banter. If you can’t make a comment concerning the letter, then don’t comment at all. Thank you!

My father, and my family, appreciated the fair My dad, Derral Braden, had a stroke and heart attack on May 26 of this year. My wife Valerie and I had attended last year’s fair and we were not going to go this year, but instead visit the family at a different time. After Dad’s incident we decided that under the circumstances, plans had to change. While heading back home to Bartlett, Ill., I thought back to the great times and experiences we had in the short six days we spent in Tillamook County. It started out on Wednesday morning when the Headlight Herald came out with a story about Dad and his love for horse racing. For that I want to thank Samantha Swindler and Josiah Darr for doing such a great job. Then it only got better when the one horse that Dad ran at the fair, named Pepe Le Feu, won the final race on Wednesday afternoon. Without the help of Don Averill, who oversees all aspects of the horse racing, we probably would have not been able to get Dad to the win picture, which was also the first win as a trainer for my sister, Darlene Braden. One of the other things that made that day so special was that all five of Mom (Jane) and Dad’s kids were there for the experience. On Friday night before the FAA/4H auction, which Dad had done for 31 years, he was presented with a plaque for his

years of service. Again we were all in attendance, and the people involved did a tremendous job. On Saturday, after the final horse race, which is named in Mom and Dad’s honor, not only did some very good friends win the race, but even more of the family was in attendance for the picture. After four days of tremendous excitement and enjoyment, Dad was exhausted but smiling from ear to ear. I hope all the people of Tillamook County appreciate the fair as much as I do. Everyone involved does a great job. Lee Roesti Bartlett, Illinois

Unfair judging at demolition derby Something needs to be done or at least recognized, about the unfair judgment done at the Tillamook County demolition derby. First of all they need to figure out some kind of system for judging and rewarding of the trophies. One of the cars got a third place trophy for the first heat when they were not even in the first heat, they were in the second. The yellow number 14 car came in first for his trophy dash and was told he did not win, although it was recorded on camera, and also seen by everyone that watched. These people who participate in our demolition derby put a lot of time and work into their cars and for someone to be treated the way we were by the judges is just not right. They say it’s no big deal; it’s only a trophy. But it’s just the point, when someone tries so hard to win and they do, then their glory gets stolen away from them by judges who may just be playing favorites. I hope somebody else can realize the concern I have about this. If they are not going to judge fairly and be organized about it, and actually look like they know what they are doing, not scrambling around handing out trophies to people they do not belong to, then they should not judge at all; hand out no trophies. Do it all for fun and let the crowd decide for themselves who they thought did the best. Nicole Naegeli Tillamook

Unite against vote-buying corporations It would be nice if Mr. Streeter (“You get what you vote for,” Aug. 20) could use a real example of government interference, because real government interference has serious consequences. The example of a restroom mirror that was too high (or to low) has been going around the web for several years in the guise of the “frivolous lawsuit” myth. No truth to it.

These stories are well loved and circulate round and round. Same with the bus decal story. Surely today when so much is going wrong with our country he could find one or two real issues to mention. For example: The Food and Drug Administration used fake lab results to ruin a family’s farm. You can read about this in a book titled “Mad Sheep.” It is in the Tillamook Library. Or how money from India and China is entering into our voting process because of a ruling by our Supreme Court on “Citizens United.” Most of the ads you will see on TV are paid for in part by money taken from global corporations in foreign countries. Should other countries be allowed to influence our elections? There is no government bureaucracy between anyone and their doctor in “Obamacare.” Here are some facts for Mr. Streeter. The mandate to buy health insurance from insurance companies was offered up by the GOP in response to Hillary Care. The right-wing think tank, The Heritage Foundation, was for it. Mitt Romney in Massachusetts implemented it when he was governor, and he doesn’t want to talk about it now. John Boehner, Republican, introduced it again when the Affordable Care Act was being debated. It was included in the Affordable Care Plan: (Obamacare). Mr. Streeter is wrong. We Americans don’t get what we vote for, but the corporations get what they pay for. In order for America to come out of this, Americans need to unite. Why don’t we unite against “Corporations are people”? A start would be asking our city councils or counties to pass resolutions declaring that corporations are not people. Many examples of this process are available online. Dixie Gainer Nehalem

Improvements downtown are noticed and welcome I was pleased to see some actual progress being made to “spruce up” Tillamook. I was the person who, a few months ago, was so disappointed in the run-down condition my home town was in. I attended my 45-year high school reunion on Aug. 11. I was talking to myself as I drove through town, OMG, look at that! And OMG, when did that happen? Keep up the good work Tillamook! I’m liking what I see. I think as you get your toes wet dabbling in improvements, it will encourage you to wade a little deeper. Good job! I see hope! Cathy Miller Yamhill

No use for hyperbole in politics The use of hyperbole in normal conversation as in “This bag weighs a ton!” is harmless and fun. The use of hyperbole to argue for a particular point of view in politics is dishonest and despicable. Ray Streeter’s letter of Aug. 20 (“You get what you vote for”) uses two hyperbolic accounts that are outrageous, unsubstantiated, and probably false to further his point of view. The two stories he tells render his conclusions worthless. For the health and wellbeing of millions of us, Medicare works very well indeed. There is no reason why the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) cannot work as well. The difficulties of the Obama administration has more to do with the attitude of his opposition in Congress. The Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, said in an unusual episode of honesty, “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one term president.” This attitude has been prevalent since 2009 and has impacted all of our lives. Forget about the economy and our future, political gain is their paramount concern. If they can make Obama look bad enough, they can return to power and continue their policies which mainly concentrate wealth in the top 5 percent and leave the rest of us shut out. Jim Heffernan Tillamook

ODOT projects will bring more problems Despite the objections, it appears this (the project at the Hwy. 101/OR 6 intersection) will be happening. What I found really fascinating in the Aug. 15 article (“U.S. 101/OR 6 project moving forward) was the “economic and development benefits include approximately 100 construction-related jobs pro-

viding direct and indirect employment for a period of two to three years.” That’s strange because I was told by one of the representatives from ODOT/W&H Pacific that there would be no local contractors hired for this project. It became very obvious from that conversation, that very little of this $27 million dollars is going to stay in our county. And do we all remember the 90 degree day we had on Aug. 4 of this year? Did you try to drive north on Hwy. 101? Where was the congestion that day? Traffic was backed up from Latimer Road to Hadley Road. Where was there no problem? At that “crazy” intersection of First St. and Hwy. 101. Seems to me there are issues in other locations that should be looked at being corrected. But what do I know? I just drive these roads every day and see where the problems really are. I can’t wait to see when the first accident is going to happen when Wilson River Loop and Hwy. 6 are reconfigured. That problem is not being fixed; it is just moved farther east. And the problems that will happen with people entering and exiting the gas station at Pacific Avenue, Main Avenue and Hwy. 101 are going to be epic. Patricia Archambault Tillamook

Welfare check in Garibaldi appreciated On Aug. 16, my husband and I were in Garibaldi. We stopped so he could get a haircut. I stayed in the car and promptly went to sleep. Well, wouldn’t you know, a gentleman came by and very pleasantly asked me if I was alright. Indeed, I was, but I shall always be grateful to the man who cared about me. It also created a most pleasant memory of Garibaldi. Incidentally, my husband got a great cut at Tammy’s! Annelle Porter Hebron, Ohio

WHO ARTED?

Juried celebration of the arts at Pioneer Museum “Creativity takes courage.” – Henri Matisse

P

ioneers of a different sort gathered recently on Friday, Aug. 3, at the Tillamook County Biennial Fine Art and Craft show at the Pioneer Museum. I myself made a mistake and didn’t submit a piece or two. I was busy, not paying enough attention, maybe dreading a tinge of disappointment, and failed the better artistic angels of my nature. It was a grand do in its very Tillamook Pioneer Museum way and well put on. The gala’s finger foods were first-class wonderful with a glass of wine – worth the drive alone, but my stomach digresses. The music was lively and kind to the ears and the socializing fine and warm. It was the feast for the eyes, though, that was the main thing. Many of the invited and juried names are well known to those who have be.en paying attention to area arts, but others’ names not so much. This was a great chance for newer artists and crafters to strut their stuff a bit and mingle on the walls next to those well established. From the professionals to the weekend daubers or

carvers, almost all of the work was energetic and high quality. Sculptors pared away what they would from material as fine as Italian marble and as humble as a chunk of cottonwood root. Equally large, an intricate and fabulous quilt hangs near an intriguingly simple sketch of a raven-like bundle of natural debris. A strong and wonderful tiny etching is neighbor to an almost spooky but incredibly inviting pastel of a forest path disappearing into the mist. Nasturtiums blossom

Tillamook and Garibaldi? No contest for councils There likely won’t be any contested races this November for Garibaldi or Tillamook City Councils. Current Garibaldi mayor Suzanne McCarthy filed for reelection to her seat; she will run unopposed unless a write-in candidate seeks the position. Terry Kandle is running for re-election to his council seat. He is currently the council vice president. A new face will be L. Marlene Westerfield, who is running unopposed for the council position vacated earlier this year by Betty Thomas and temporarily filled by Roberta Bettis. Ms. Westerfield is employed as an administrative assistant by CARE in Tillamook. Filing deadline for Garibaldi City Council was Aug. 14

The makeup of the Tillamook City Council shouldn’t be changing next year. Current councilors for Wards 1, 3 and 5 – Joseph Martin, Cheryl Davy and John Sandusky, respectively – all filed for the November election without opposition. Deadline to file for candidacy was Aug. 15. Candidate filings from other cities were not available by deadline. Rockaway Beach, which had originally set an Aug. 15 deadline for candidate filing, has extended that date to Aug. 28, according to City Manager Lars Gare. Manzanita and Wheeler’s application deadlines ended after press time. Candidates still have until Aug. 28 to file for election to one of three open positions on Nehalem City Council.

from green ceramic tiles, starfish dance a conga line, an owl stares from an inky black scratchboard, a full watercolor moon radiates through the pines, water ripples hypnotically. Found object necklaces displayed on driftwood are practically partying already, with or without you taking them out for the night. A handmade coat for the ladies shimmers toward the floor with colors of the seashore and night skies. All of the work is for sale to benefit both their creators

and the Tillamook County Arts Network. If you're in the market for some fine local art, I saw something for thirty dollars and another pushing eight grand pretty hard, so your wallet being too lean or too fat ought not to be a problem. As a community we owe a big thank you the artists and to the members of the Tillamook County Arts Network who put so much work into making this first biennial a success - kudos to Lynn Thomas, Lori Dillon, Kathleen Ryan, Lorraine Ortiz, no doubt others, and the Tillamook County Cultural Coalition. Thanks, too, to the Pioneer Museum and staff. Speaking of lean wallets, there is no charge to visit the great biennial art displayed on the ground flooran excellent opportunity to introduce yourself or offspring to the best of the local art scene through September 30th, 10 am to 4 pm. Enjoy! Supporting art can make this wonderful county even more so. As always, please let me know about interesting people, events or venues related to our area’s visual arts.

Laura Davis Mrs. Laura L. Davis, longtime resident of Hebo and Portland, passed away in her Newberg, home on Aug. 18, 2012, with family at her side, at age 78. Mrs. Davis was born Sept. 4, 1933 in Forest Grove to William and Anna Marie LAURA DAVIS (Van Loo) Clapsaw. She was a graduate of Hillsboro schools. In November 1952, she married Allan D. Davis. They lived in the Portland area for over 30 years before retiring to Hebo in 1990.

She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Allan Davis of Newberg; sister, Betty Ann St. Pierre of Newberg and by numerous nieces and nephews. Laura was preceded in death by one sister, Virginia Rattay, in 2010. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Aug. 22 at St. Peter Catholic Church in Newberg. A memorial service at a later date will be held at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Cloverdale. Donations in her name may be made to the American Cancer Society, or to either St. Peter’s or St. Joseph’s to fund church missions. Arrangements are in care of Waud’s Funeral Home.

Thomas Ward Tom was born at home on April 19, 1925, in Sandlake to Carlton and Anna (Palm) Ward. He passed away July 30, 2012. He was raised and educated in Sandlake and graduated from Nestucca High School in 1943. Shortly after his graduation he joined the Army; as part of the 82nd Airborne Division he was fighting in Belgium in WWII when he became a POW. He came home as a decorated soldier. After the war Tom went to college, first at Oregon College of Education then Colorado State College, receiving his bachelor’s in elementary education and later earning his master’s degree in education at the

University of Oregon. Tom was an elementary school teacher in Klamath Falls for nine years and in Lake Oswego for 16 years. Tom also worked as a logger, a skill he learned as a youth working for his older brother in Sandlake, and at a cement plant as a summer job between school years and after his teaching career ended until his retirement in 1989. Tom enjoyed the outdoors; hunting and fishing in the Tillamook coastal range, and clam digging in the Sandlake area. In retirement, Tom liked to spend time with his brothers and sisters and his son Gary. He is preceded in death by his son Dennis Ward and all his siblings. Survivors include Tom’s former wife of 25 years and dedicated care taker in his later years, Rose (Reding) Ward, son, Gary Ward, daughter, Cecilia Ward, her husband Dave Ellis, grandsons Galen Ward and Bryan Ward and granddaughters, Rachel Ellis and Katharine Ellis. Private services will be at Willamette National Cemetery.

Lucretia Reid Lucretia Lorene (Lorry) Reid, age 88, passed away peacefully Aug. 13, 2012 in Kennewick, Wash. She was born March 4, 1924, in Ashland. She lived her childhood in Ashland and Dallas, Ore. She married LUCRETIA Robert W. Reid REID July 19, 1944. When Bob got home from World War II, they headed for school at Oregon State University in Corvallis, where Lorry studied Home Economics. The young family moved to the TriCities in 1950. They raised their family in Kennewick for 21 years. They lived in Rockville, MD for 10 years and retired in Tillamook. In 2010, Lorry and Bob returned to Kennewick to be near family. Lorry’s passions in life were family, dance, swimming, family history and cooking. She was an active member of The Church of Jesus of Latter-day Saints. She worked with the youth and dance programs. She and her husband established the Tillamook Family History Center in about 1980. She is survived by her husband of 68 years, Robert W.

David Aeder David J. Aeder, 85, who resided in Haines and Bay City, died at home on Aug. 12, 2012 in Haines. No services will be held, at his request. Memorials may be made to Special Olympics. Dave was born March 19, 1927 in Silverton. He was the youngest of four children born to Joseph and Katie Lincoln Oeder. He met his future wife, NaOma Sall, “online” while he worked on a Columbia River tugboat and she was a Union Pacific telegrapher. They communicated via Morse Code before they met in person. They were married on June 7, 1945, and had five children. In later years, they enjoyed traveling to the Southwest, and owned a winter home in Chloride, Ariz. NaOma passed away in 2006. Dave was also preceded in death by two sisters. Following high school, Dave took some geology courses but was mostly self-taught, studying geology, mathematics, chemistry, and electronics. He earned his pilot’s license while still a teenager, and worked briefly as a crop-duster. Dave and NaOma bought the Chloride Mine in Baker County in 1958 and it is still familyowned. He enjoyed prospecting and was still looking for the Mother Lode in the last years of his life. He designed and built machinery and all-terrain vehicles for his own use. In the early 1960s, he sold a patent on a prototype snowmobile. He had many jobs, including working in the oil fields as a well logger, construction, dambuilding, logging, mining and mine reclamation, manufacturing, sawmills, electronics and commercial fishing out of Garibaldi. Survivors include five children and their spouses, Pat and Michele Aeder of Garibaldi, Janet and Doug Rasmussen of

Corvallis, Rick and Linda Aeder of Portland, Sandy and Dave Gobel of Beaverton and Haines, and Karen and Bill Ellis of Bay City. Dave also left behind 15 grandchildren and 21 greatgrandchildren. He is survived by his brother Bob Aeder of Hawaii. Dave donated his body to OHSU for research.

Kenneth Simnitt Jr. Kenneth James Simnitt Jr. was born in Portland on March 1, 1939 to Ken and Elsie Simnitt. Ken grew up in Troutdale and graduated in 1957 from Gresham Union High School, where he fell in love with Margie Ann Chambers, whom he wed on July 18, 1959. The young couple’s hopes for a career in baseball ended with Ken’s contraction of bulbar and spinal polio in 1959. Refusing Social Security disability, Ken resumed his teenaged job at Troutdale’s Wool Pullery, where he set a record for “pulling” the most hides in one day that was never beaten. In 1964, Ken was hired as a laborer at Oregon Steel Mill and the Simnitt's moved to Lake Grove after reading of the school district's high assessment scores in the Oregonian; the young couple valued a good education for their kids. The family attended Lake Oswego United Methodist Church where Ken led a task force in service to migrant families. Ken assisted with Indian Guides, Boy Scouts, and local Little League. In June 1970, Ken and Margie converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The family welcomed foster daughters, Ardyth Tallbull (1961) and Trudy Small (1961) both of Lamedeer, Mont., who joined the family for school years through the LDS “Lamanite Placement Program.” With five children between age 8 and 11, the family moved to small acreage in West Linn. In 1974, Ken and Margie launched Ken’s Kustom Kleaning, a professional janitorial service. After the children were raised, Ken retired and the Simnitts divorced. On July 6, 1986 Ken married Arina Jacoba Vanderveen, of Tualatin. They lived in Tualatin, Tigard and Wilsonville before Ken lost Arina to pancreatic cancer in June 1997. As a widower, Ken resided at Greenfield Village in Tigard where he enjoyed books, conservative talk radio, and viewing news, OPB, and the Yankees, Blazers and golf on a modest flat screen television. A very private man, Ken was a talented sketch artist, watercolor and oil painter. He loved 1950s music and was a thoughtful and prolific writer with several published poems, numerous short stories and thousands of letters to his credit. He passed away in his sleep at home on the night of Aug. 7, 2012 of undetermined causes. Survivors include his beloved mother, Elsie Simnitt and brother Jerome (Janice) Simnitt of Canby; sisters Darlene (Bob) Alley of Troutdale and Debora (Betty) Simnitt of Portland; brother Theodore (Carol) Simnitt of Estacada; Margie Ann (David) Park of Boardman; daughter Melonie Ferguson of Cloverdale; sons Mark (Julie) Simnitt of Portland and Knol (Angie) Simnitt, of Tigard, Ardyth Wheeler of Capetown, South Africa, Trudy (Jesse) Madrigal of Colstrip, Mont.; 10 adored grandchildren, four foster grandsons, five great-grand children and numerous nieces and nephews. He will be greatly missed.

New Rockaway Councilor appointed POWER: City to rename park in honor of Phyllis Baker BY SAMANTHA SWINDLER sswindler@countrymedia.net

ROCKAWAY BEACH – Bonnie Sedgemore was appointed on Aug. 15 to fill the remainder of City Councilor Mardi Wing’s term, following Wing’s resignation. Wing was appointed as City Councilor in September 2011, following the successful recall of former mayor Dennis Porter and city councilor Rodney Breazile. Sedgemore will hold the position at least until January, when the winner of the November city council election will take office. It was unclear who will be seeking election to the three council seats that will be up for grabs. Deadline to file for city office has been extended until Aug. 28. Sedgemore has been a member of the Rockaway Beach Finance Committee. She publicity criticized a report financed by a

“I had a great time. These kids are awesome. You’ve got a great drum section here.” The college-level instruction was evident in the astonishing learning curve of the band; after four days of intensive marching band camp they performed on the field with confidence and style. At the conclusion of camp Aug. 16, Dr. Townsend told the Tillamook students, “We’ve had a really fun week with you, and we appreciate all your hard work. We want to thank Mr. Lee for putting this together. We think you’re off to a really awesome start. I hope we’ll see all of you in marching band at OSU a few years from now.” Several local organizations contributed to the funding piece, including 4-H, the Tillamook County Creamery Association, the Monday Musical Club, the Ashley Inn, which provided lodging for the visiting OSU bandleaders, and Grub Club, which provided

In a letter to the editor, Sedgemore called the report “fictitious.” Later, in response to a complaint from the “Concerned Citizens,” the Oregon Department of Revenue pointed out several instances in which the City 2012-13 budget is in non-compliance with state budget law.

The Tillamook High School Marching Band takes to the field for practice.

lunch for all. No one seems to know exactly when Tillamook last had a marching band. There are mothballed marching band uniforms in storage that look like they were from the 1970s; Mr. Lee talked to someone

who remembered being in marching band 40 years ago. So it’s been a while since Tillamook has had a band on the field for home games. The Tillamook High School Marching Band will debut this fall. They’ll play pre-game and

fresh like the Nestucca water trail. Albright praised TEP for their dedication to protect and promote local water trails. A local band called Richwood provided music; there was food and cake and a ribbon cutting before the entire party took to the water. Paddlers were laughing and visiting and milling about in the

river; there was even a demonstration of yoga on paddleboards by Nestucca Adventures staff. Marcus Hines, of Kayak Tillamook, brought a dozen boats for visitors. When he gave the cue, everyone in boats on the river raised their paddles in the air to celebrate the new national water trail designation of the Nestucca.

Farm Power’s digesters consist of a large, air-tight holding tank (the Misty Meadow digester will hold more than a million gallons of manure) that heats the byproduct to about 100 degrees. Bacteria in the manure thrive in the warm condition, releasing methane biogas, which is then captured and burned, creating electricity that is then sold to utility companies. The processed, raw manure is then sent back to the farmer to fertilize his fields. After the digestion process, the odor and chance of runoff from the manure have been reduced or nearly eliminated. The digestion process also creates a fiber product that is clean, pure and can be used horticulturally or for animal bedding. At Farm Power Misty Meadow, the Hogans lease the land to Farm Power and provide the manure. In return, they will get some of the fiber bedding to use for their cows, and see a reduction in the odor produced by the farm. “The tourists come in on Hwy. 6 and we want them to take a deep breath and say ‘ahhhh we love this place,’” said Daryl’s brother and Farm Power partner, Kevin Maas. At a cost of about $4.5 million, Farm Power Misty Meadow will also include a cover for the dairy’s enormous holding pond, a major source of odor just off the side of the highway. “It’s unfortunate – I don’t think anybody anticipated that building that containment structure where they built it would have the smell effect that it did right there,” said Bob White, power services manager for Tillamook PUD. “I can’t tell you whether [the generator] is going to reduce [the smell] by 50 percent, 90 percent, but I think every-

body’s hope is that there will be a significant improvement.” Farm Power Northwest has now built several manure digesters on dairy farms in Oregon and Washington, including their first project in Tillamook, McCormick Loop Digester. The $4 million project has been producing biogas and clean by-product for a little over three months now. The digester is located on Silvermist Farm, owned by Kevin Thomas, and pipes in manure from a total of five nearby farms. “It’s going really well, it’s been going a little over three months,” said Kevin Maas. “It’s been sort of a slow ramp, but it’s on pace now, doing what we figured it would.” A significant reduction in odor at that location is already evident and, according to Daryl, the digester is producing enough electricity to “run the whole southeast side of town on cow power.” According to White, since it’s gone online, the McCormick Loop digester has the capacity of about a megawatt of electricity, able to power roughly 400 homes with average power usage. To fund the digesters, Farm Power Northwest uses a combination of the company’s own equity, as well as grants from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and loans from the Oregon Department of Energy. While they have built several other digesters on family farms in Washington State, the Maas’ agree that they enjoy working in Tillamook, which is an ideal setting for their projects. “Tillamook is unique – there are very few places with this many farms in this small of an area,” Kevin said. “It’s in an area that’s still relatively dairy friendly, and it’s not often that you find lots and lots of farms.”

“The national water trail designation is a great economic development driver for Tillamook County,” said Phipps. Sue Abbott of the National Park Service attended the event. Before she took to the water, she told the crowd that there are 1,200 national recreation trails in the country, and only 30 of those are water trails. The Nestucca was the only Oregon trail added to the list this year. County Commissioner Mark Labhart and State Representative Deborah Boone were on hand for the ribbon cutting and said a few words to mark the event. Labhart got a laugh from the crowd when a giant Newfoundland dog in the audience began “talking” in response to Labhart’s voice, or perhaps in competition with him. In any case, the dog was quite loud and Labhart gave up in good humor, saying, “Even the dog wants me to be quiet, so I’ll pass the microphone to

Representative Boone.” Boone celebrated the designation of the Nestucca as a national water trail and thanked TEP for their leadership and work in promoting stewardship of Tillamook County waterways. Boone works at a state level on tsunami preparedness issues for the coast, so the subject is never far from her mind, she said. She noted that in the event of a major subduction zone earthquake and subsequent tsunami, it is possible that rivers and streams will be used as transportation routes until roads and bridges can be repaired. Gary Albright, director of the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum rounded out the day’s speakers. Albright spoke eloquently about water as the source of life on this planet, the proof of the possibility of life on other planets; the very beginning of the story of life on earth may have begun in a place where salt water meets

At that time, then-mayor Jim Watts wanted each councilor to take on a project, and Baker took on the task of creating the Parks and Recreation Department. She worked with the Parks & Rec Department for 18 years. She also volunteered with and wrote grants for the Senior Meals program. She was a past “Volunteer of the Year” for Rockaway Beach. Baker also did a three-year stint as the Headlight Herald’s Fencepost column writer for Rockaway Beach. She opened “The Float,” a bright pink ice cream shop in downtown Rockaway, with friend and another former city councilor, Ruth Daugherty. In other business, the council appointed Ray Owens and Linda Holm to the Planning Commission.

FAIR:

Continued from Page A1

In her cover letter, Muir lists her experience, including “incredible opportunities to host VIP guests, give television and radio interviews, as well as meet and lobby legislators on behalf of the fair.” Muir said she began working at the county fair at age 14. Seventeen years later, she helped the annual event by doing “a little bit of everything.” The five-day-long Sangamon fair drew about 72,000 this June, Muir said. It’s structure is comparable to Tillamook’s – big musical acts, a carnival and a demolition derby (no one else, of course, can boast the Pig N’ Ford Races). The Sangamon County Fair has no full-time fair manager; rather, the 23 fair board members, part-time employees and volunteers make it hap-

pen. Muir’s job at the Sangamon Fair was only part-time, and in addition she has worked fulltime as an administrative assistant for a civil engineering firm. Muir received a bachelor’s degree in design from Southern Illinois University. “I got involved in sewing in the fair, and I still sew part-time for family friends and do a wide variety of things,” Muir said. Over the years, she decided her calling was in full-time fair and festival management. “I was invited to go to the IAFE (International Association of Fairs and Expositions) convention in Vegas and I started their fair executive training,” she said. The experience led Muir to go for her masters in business administration from Bendictine

University, which she received in 2009. She said she and her husband were looking for a community where they could settle “permanently, or at least for a long time.” They were drawn to Tillamook’s small-town charm (Muir is from a town of about 800 people), the ocean, the mountains and even, Muir said, “the weather.” “I am so excited to have been given this opportunity,” she said. “Tillamook is blessed to have a fantastic fairgrounds and a wonderful Fair Board. I am honored to have been chosen as fair manager and I cannot wait to get started planning next year’s fair and getting to know the community. “My husband and I already feel like we are a part of the Tillamook County Fair family.”

Asked what new ideas she plans to bring to the fair, Muir said she hoped to generate greater year-round use of the fairgrounds. “It’s not just the week of the fair,” she said, having the fairgrounds utilized more “can only benefit the fair.” Eileen Aufdermauer has served as the interim fair manager since former manager Andy Neal submitted his resignation on Nov. 30, 2011. Neal, the former director of the Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce, held the position only eight months. He replaced Jerry Underwood, who retired after 20 years with the fair. Aufdermauer said she declined an offer to take the job permanently but will stay with the fairgrounds, resuming her secretarial duties.

Tillamook PUD General Manager Ray Sieler said the main driver behind the rate hike is the rising cost of power purchased from the Bonneville Power Administration. Nearly all of Tillamook PUD’s power is purchased from the Bonneville system, with the small exception of power generated by two manure digesters. Last August, PUD instituted a 5percent local rate increase in response to a 8.5-percent rate increase from Bonneville. BPA officials have cited several factors driving the rate increase, including aging equipment at its 31 federal dams. “We’re anticipating that Bonneville will be increasing our rates every year,” Sieler said. “We’re looking at the 2014-15 time frame, and they’re looking at increases of 10 percent in that area. “That’s going to put a burden on the utility to try to keep our expenses in control and control that rate increase,” he said. Power costs make up about 50 percent of Tillamook PUD’s entire costs, Sieler said.

business. He was hired as director of utilities for Fort Morgan, Colo, and later became city manager of the town of about 15,000. “Then I ended up in Richland, Wash. as director of energy services, running the electric department there,” Sieler said. “My wife and I had actually had a place here (in Tillamook County) for about 10 years where we’d come to cool off from the Tri-Cities... When the opportunity came for this job, and I applied for it and got the job. So now we’re here permanently.” While Richland’s electric department served more customers and more power load, Tillamook County serves more area, and that means more problems, “especially when the storms come in,” he said. “Here you cover over 1,000 square miles, and over there we covered, maybe 50 square miles,” Sieler said. “Here you have a lot of lines that are going through woods, and all of a sudden you have a customer out. “Our biggest problem over there was the squirrels getting into transformers,” Sieler said with a laugh.

A BIT ABOUT RAY

NETARTS/OCEANSIDE LINE

Sieler came to Tillamook PUD earlier this year, to replace Pat Ashby who retired in July. Sieler graduated from the South Dakota School of Mines, and earned a master’s degree in public administration from the University of Colorado. He’s had a long history in the public utilities sector, including 12 years managing the gas department for the city of Colorado Springs, Colo. He took a decade-long career detour when he started his own business – a florist shop and greenhouse. “I was ready to get out of the public sector, I suppose, and my wife at that time had owned a florist business,” he said. “I thought, I’ve got a business background, she’s got the technical expertise, it’ll work. Then I started a plant leasing company, where you rent plants for office buildings and restaurants.” But Sieler said he missed the utility

Tillamook PUD is still working on plans to add an electrical substation and distribution/transmission line to serve the Netarts/Oceanside area, but construction isn’t slated to begin until 2014, and will likely come with a higher price tag. Bob White, power services manager, said PUD is building the line to add service stability and handle load growth. The substation will be able to hold and distribute electric power. A long, single line brings electricity out to Netarts and Oceanside, and breaks in the line – from downed trees, or a car that hits a power pole – can put about 3,500 customers in the dark. “By adding this transmission line out into the Netarts/Oceanside area, we add another source of power out there that will let us take any one segment of this line out of service and reduce the number of customers that are impacted by an outage,” White said.

The project will also help with reliability to the Tillamook valley area. White admits the county has had much smaller load growth than anticipated, but he said it is “growing, albeit, slowly.” And as usage inches up, the PUD struggles to handle outages during times of peak electrical usage. “We have two large power transformers that serve virtually all of the customers from just south of Garibaldi to just south of Tillamook...” White said. “If one of those two transformers is not available for service, either it’s being maintained or it’s had some kind of a failure, our first natural thing to do is to transfer all of that additional load to the other transformer. “There are certain times of the year when we cannot do that.” He’s talking about the winter, when more power is used to heat homes. That also happens to be the time when most outages occur due to storms. “So we need to add another source of power into our system... for an outage event,” he said. In June 2011, the PUD’s board of directors approved a recommended route for the line. From there, the PUD began working with landholders in the city of Tillamook – including the City itself – to finalize a route through town. The line was originally proposed to follow the south bank of Hoquarten Slough, but the City of Tillamook, as a landowner, opposed that idea. “We literally spent months working with the City to identify a route through the city that the City Council could agree to as a landowner,” White said. The process seems to be taking longer than planned – a previous Headlight Herald article stated PUD hoped to begin construction in 2012. PUD received landowner approvals within the city in April. White said PUD will next apply for a conditional use permit from the city, likely sometime in September. After the city process is complete, PUD will begin work on the county’s conditional use permit, and will then begin contacting individual landowners about purchasing easements through their property. “We certainly have some challenges

in front of us in acquiring the rights of way,” White said. “Our goal is to try to find the overall route that provides the least impact overall.” The PUD can use “eminent domain” to seize property and fairly compensate landowners who do not want to sell, but White said “it would be our last resort. We would work with landowners to do most any reasonable thing to avoid that. Our goal is to try to be a good neighbor.” That can be difficult, when many residents are wary of possible health effects from such a line. Transmission lines have higher electric fields, a product of voltage, than distribution lines, but much lower magnetic fields, which are the product of electrical current. According to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), “no associations have been made between electric fields and any negative impacts on a person’s health.” However, in a 1999 report to the U.S. Congress, the NIEHS recognized that electric and magnetic fields “cannot be considered entirely safe due to weak scientific evidence that magnetic field exposure may pose a small risk related to childhood leukemia.” “We have had folks that have raised health risk questions,” White said. “We have shared a number of materials with folks to let them read what other experts say about electro-magnetic radiation or other things. You will find a belief from one extreme to the other. One extreme says there’s absolutely, positively no effect; then there are folks that say you shouldn’t have these things anywhere. We think that it can be built and not have medical impacts on individuals. When we look at all the research and the data and the standards that are out there, we’ll build this line to meet or exceed any of those existing standards. And there will be less impact from the transmission line than from the energy that’s in your home.” Initial cost estimates for the project were about $7 million, but it now looks like that price tag will be rising. White said that after concerns from the City of Tillamook, PUD opted to use a more

expensive conductor that will allow for lower and few poles “to try to reduce visual impacts within the city.” That and problematic soil conditions will add to the project price, but a new figure has not been released. PUD officials said the transmission line isn’t factored into this fall’s sixpercent rate increase, but White said, “It will be a part of future rate increases as we pay off that additional longterm debt.”

NEXT PROJECT IS NESKOWIN Once the Netarts/Oceanside transmission line construction is underway, White will set his sights on south county, where Tillamook PUD has plans for an 11th substation in Neskowin. “We own a piece of property in Neskowin that was bought many years ago and identified as a substation site,” White said. “We know where the substation site is currently planned to be, and we’ve looked at a transmission route that could get us there. It has gone no further than just conceptual [discussions]... and now it’s sitting, waiting for us to get this [Oceanside] project, at least through the planning and acquisition stage. The Neskowin line will connect to the nearest transmission substation, located near the Brooten Road, Hwy. 101 intersection. The PUD’s property in Neskowin is east of Hwy. 101. Existing substations are located in Nehalem, Mohler, Garibaldi, South Fork (near the prison camp), Tillamook (where there are two), Beaver, Hebo and Pacific City. “We actually own property in Rockaway and we built a line into Rockaway... designed to be able to be a transmission line,” White said. At this point, that line is energized only at a distribution voltage level. “At some point down the road, if Rockaway grows, to the point where we need it, we would then build a substation in Rockaway... That’s not currently anticipated in the next 5-10 years. “We own property near Bay City for a similar kind of event, but it’s probably even further out.”

‘Poachers are stealing from everyone’ BY JOSIAH DARR Headlight Herald Sports

Every fall, the timeless tradition of hunting begins. Whether or not you go home with your intended quarry, it’s most important to safely make it home at the end of the day – and to preserve the resource for future generations. Unfortunately there are a number of people who don’t play by the rules when it comes to appropriate hunting times and locations. According to State Police Sargeant Todd Hoodenpyle with the Fish and Game Division, it’s these people who put the entire hunting season and other hunters at risk. “Spotlighting is a major problem in the Tillamook area,” Hoodenpyle said. “People use big hand-held lights or their headlights to spot animals at night and kill them.” Besides being unsafe – because it’s impossible to determine what’s behind your target – it’s also unsporting and illegal to hunt at night. “We spend a lot of time and energy on stopping spotlighters around Tillamook County,” Hoodenpyle said. “We use things like decoys and airplanes as our main defense. Airplanes are especially effective because of how much farther we can see a light at night than people might think, making it very easy to make arrests.” Other serious infractions that Hoodenpyle encounters around Tillamook include people harvesting animals out of season, and people who are shooting animals for someone else’s tag. “Overall, greed is the main motivating factor for people to break the law,” Hoodenpyle said. “What people don’t understand is that poachers are stealing from everyone. The size of the animal herds are managed for a specific amount of harvest, and those taking extra animals are hurting it for everyone.” Hoodenpyle referred to new regulations surrounding the Trask River Hatchery area and how the section from Cedar Creek to Loren’s Drift is now only open to bobber fishing certain times of year. “We had to make rules to stop a small amount of the

While elk and deer may be a prize for the trophy room and a huge addition to a freezer for the winter, hunting is still a sport, and no sport is worth going to jail for, or possibly hurting an innocent pedestrian.

people, and it effected everyone,” Hoodenpyle explained. “By changing that law it did do a tremendous job reducing the problem, which is why that good angler conduct allowed us to extend the season and give more opportunity (to fish).” Many of the hunting and fishing laws that are broken are a matter of over-harvest or out of season harvest. But Hoodenpyle also mentions that his group spends far more time than they should

responding to calls about people shooting toward houses or in an unsafe direction. “We have a lot of people who have landowner tags around here, but just because you have a landowner tag doesn’t mean you can shoot any direction you want. You still need to be sure you have a safe backdrop and you aren’t shooting towards houses, highways or people.” Hoodenpyle also said

he’d like to see more shotgun and bow hunting in situations where houses are nearby to limit the range of the bullets, but currently there isn’t a law requiring it in most circumstances. “The main message I want to send out to the public is poachers are stealing from everyone, and we need people to understand that,” Hoodenpyle emphasized. “We need the public’s help with this. I’d say about 75 percent of the cases we get come from people calling the poaching hotline.” “If people are nervous about calling the hotline, we’ll allow them to remain anonymous, and if you’re not sure if a crime has been committed but you think it has, call the hot line. We’ll come and determine if we think a law was broken. And

even if we can’t catch them, we know to focus our efforts in that direction which might help us catch them in the future.” The Oregon State Police Poaching Hot Line number is located on the back of all hunting and fishing licenses. The number is 1-800-4527888. The police offer rewards from $100 to $500 for tips that lead to arrests in the State of Oregon. Part of the thrill of hunting is the stories that come from the experience. “We’re all hunters and fishermen around here,” Hoodenpyle said. “We love talking about a great success story we had in the woods or on the river, but the ones who do it illegally can’t tell their stories. And the ones that do are the ones we catch.”

On Aug. 20, legions of Oregon Ducks, Oregon State Beavers, New York Yankees, Seattle Mariners, Tillamook Cheesemakers and fans of other teams descended upon the Tillamook High School auditorium to celebrate the life of young sports enthusiast, David Cheney. Cheney passed away Aug. 13 at age 14 after a battle with cancer. David’s mother, Deanna, and his brothers, Richard and Marcus, were in full sports attire as they received dozens of hugs from people entering the unique memorial service. Once the jersey-clad onlookers found their seats, Pastor Kevin Birdsong let the auditorium in a prayer before playing a slide show of photos put together by the Cheney family. Photos of David and his family danced across the screen to the music of Kenny Rodgers’ “The Gambler” and Kenny Chesney’s “Who You’d Be Today.” Some photos were joyful, with the three Cheney brothers playing sports or messing around like brothers do. Other pictures left the crowd in tears. Birdsong mentioned some lyrics that suggested tears were a language God understands. David Cheney may have been taken at a young age, but the courage he displayed in his 14 years was the kind that great men spend their entire lives talking about. It was this courage and David’s love for sports of all kinds that were the catalyst for the majority of the stories shared by the audience when Birdsong opened up the floor for people to share their favorite memories of David. While David’s playful personality, love for the Oregon Ducks and athletic ability were all great topics in the stories shared, it was the praises of David’s mother Deanna that sent the auditorium into thunderous applause.

Bay Run grows by more than 50 percent SPORTS BRIEFS BY JOSIAH DARR

Hole-in-One Carol Thomas, a longtime member of Alderbrook Golf Course, hit her first holein-one on the eighth hold at Alderbrook Golf Course on Aug 8. Thomas was using her driver on the 136-yard par three.

BAY OCEAN – In its second year of a new and improved course, the Tillamook Bay Run drew a 50 percent growth in participation. The race took place Aug. 18 and featured a challenging course, sending runners over various terrains on the Bayocean Spit. “Last year we had 125 runners and this year we had 189 people participating of all abilities,” said Justin Aufdermauer, president of the Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce, which hosts the event as a fundraiser. The race consists of 10K and 5K run/walk races, with participants choosing which distance best suits them. North Coast Recreation District Fitness Instructor and veteran runner Jeremy Hill says he can’t attest to the difficulty of the 5K race, but says the 10K gave him all he could handle. “I’ve participated in dozens of different races including helping put together the Manzanita Run/Walk, but the 10K portion of the Bay Run was tough,” Hill said. “It’s definitely a cross country course, and it’s deceptive at first. You start out on a flat section of beach, but then you end up on the dry sand dunes and they kill your calves.” Besides the uniqueness of the course, the Tillamook Bay Run received another boost this season with the addition of Eclectic Edge Racing out of Eugene. Eclectic Edge organized the event on the day of the race, providing a race announcer, music and timing of the racers. “The atmosphere this year was so much more energetic and exciting with the help of Eclectic Edge,” Aufdermauer said. “I’m sure with their help and the help of our sponsors, people will continue to enjoy the course and the event will continue to grow.”

189 runners prepare for the start of the Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce’s all-terrain cross country race, the Tillamook Bay Run.

The main sponsor for this year’s race was Stimson Lumber, with major contributions coming from the Schooner Restaurant (who provided clam chowder) and Fort George Brewery (who provided microbrews for the race participants). “There’s no way this event run could ever happen without the amazing sponsors and the volunteers,” Aufdermauer added. Of this year’s 189 participating racers, 111 of them came from outside Tillamook County, displaying the race’s ability to draw runners to the event. One runner came all the way from Mendota Heights, Minn. to participate. While many runners came for the festivities and to take in the whole experience, there was still some racing to be done. Jacob Stout from Brush Prairie, Wash. won the 10K race with a time of 36:34 and claimed the $100 cash prize, with Rubi Grindell-Verga winning the women’s 10K portion of the race. Grindell-Verga is

a member of the Forest Grove Cross Country team, and won the $100 prize for her school. Also taking first place in their respective 10K divisions were Chase Bartley in the under 14 divison, Austen Frostad in the men’s 15-19 division, Nathan Henson in the 20-29 division, Alison Duer in the women’s 20-29 class, Tracy Rankin in the women’s 30-39 class, Ramon Lopez in the men’s 40-49 class, Vanessa Stephens in the women’s 40-49 class, George Hastings in the men’s 50-59 class, Terri Michel in the women’s 50-59 class, Paul Eacker in the men’s 60-99 class and Stephanie Lewis in the women’s 60-99 age group. “It’s certainly not for novice runners; Justin (Aufdermauer) and I were already talking about how we could make it even better next year,” Hill said. “I’ll definitely be back next year. I love the challenge.”

It was said that Deanna’s courage, class and poise with which she handled the last few years of her life would inspire others to be better parents. It was as if her actions were a blueprint of how every parent hopes they will handle an essentially hopeless situation. A chant of “David.... David.... David....” rang across the room just before Pastor Birdsong assured the crowd that David was now safe in Heaven, wrapped in the arms of God. “I want to thank all of you so much for all your support and your love for David and my entire family,” said Deanna Cheney before the memorial service came to a close. “We love you all so much.” If there was one thing that the crowd could take from David’s life as they exited that auditorium, it was that they should live in the David Cheney way – never giving up. Great fight David. Even though you’re no longer with us, every knows who got the win.

On July 26th, 2012 Ben Pinnak and Jolene Botchie were married on a promenade overlooking the Willamette River in Lake Oswego. The evening wedding was met with perfect conditions for the family and friends that attended. In a mixture of tradition and new Ben & Jolene celebrated their love and began their journey as husband and wife in a beautiful style all their own. The ceremony was performed by Larinda Robb, the sister of the Bride, and Bon Pinnak, the brother of the Groom. The parents of the Bride and Groom are Michael & Marie Botchie, residents of Rainier, OR, and Waluka & Ron Schweizer, residents of Tillamook, OR. Linda & Charlie Miller, and Ruth Botchie, Grandparents of the Bride were in attendance, along with 60 other family and friends who travelled from East Coast to West Coast and places in between to join Ben & Jolene on their special day!

Only in love do we create great things… On your wedding day, you celebrated your love openly with your family and friends.You shared the best of yourselves with each other and those you care about. You laughed, you danced, you cried. Toasts were made in gesture of your love, food was shared, and imperfect moments were forgiven. On your wedding day, you were LIVING an amazing moment that you will REMEMBER because you were committed to being there heart and soul! Our wish for you both is that you keep that same love, passion, commitment, understanding, and forgiveness that you shared on your wedding day in your hearts always. That you remember those feelings and revisit that day often in your minds, because on your WEDDING DAY, you got to experience your lives together the way it can be everyday if you never lose focus of what really matters. May you always be thoughtful and kind in your love for one another, and may you love each other enough to let go and encourage each other be true to your inner selves. Share in your lives openly, honestly, and unconditionally... We all deserve that one person in our life that accepts us without expectations and celebrates with us in our dreams. Be that one person to each other. (Marie Botchie) CONGRATULATIONS! H13804

T

he Oregon Tuna Classic happens this coming weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 2426. That’s three days instead of the two days they've had in the past. The fishing competition takes place Friday and Saturday, with awards on Sunday. All the events take place at the Old Mill. This is the eighth year they've had the event; it started in 2005, when a bunch of fishing fanatics led by Bud Hosner, who owns the dry dock here in Garibaldi, decided to do what they were doing anyway, catching fish, and raise food and money for the Food Bank. 17

boats participated that first year, and the number of participants has grown by leaps and bounds every year since, along with the amount of tuna caught and the amount of money raised. The Garibaldi “leg” of the Classic, historically the Grand Finale of the season, is taking place a week earlier than in past years. It used to be Labor Day weekend. It's earlier because this year, there will be only two Tuna Classic competitions instead of four. In past years, the Tuna Classic fleet has sailed out of Newport, Ilwaco, Wash., Charleston (on the southern Oregon coast) and Garibaldi; this year, it's just Ilwaco on Garibaldi Days weekend and Garibaldi. That was a conscious decision by the organizers last winter, and lest anyone worry, it wasn't because they expected a bad economy (to put it nicely) was going to cut down on the number of participants right at the time the need for the food is highest (and continuing to increase). It was because Tuna Classic-style tuna-fishing-forcharity events suddenly got popular. Two other outfits had started doing them, too, and the Tuna

Classic organizers worried that six of these events crammed into the summer season might be a bit much.

The close of the Summer Reading Program at the Library is coming Aug. 23 with the Dragon Theater Puppets preforming at the Hoffman Center. This is a great program that the library has every summer from

June until August. It keeps the kids interested in reading through the summer. They receive a sheet with stickers and get to put them on for every 15 minutes they read or have been read to. After four and eight hours, they recieve a prize. At the end of 10 hours they get a T-shirt. There is also a similar program with different activites and prizes for teens and adults, with weekly happenings throughout the program. Any age can participate. Don’t forget to buy your ticket for the Re-Think Raffle at CARTM in October. Be sure to pick it up soon – there are only 450 to be sold. Tickets are $15 each or three for $40. See you soon.

ROCKAWAY BEACH

SUGAR BROSIUS 503-653-1449 sugarsugarusa@netscape.net have been having so much fun writing this column. I thank all of you who have made this so easy and fun. I never know from week to week who is going to email me or call me with the latest information. Please continue to let me know what's happening so I can share it with our fellow Rockatonans. Just a reminder, my friend Norma Wise would like to remind you to pick up debris on the beach each time you go for a walk. Just picking up a few articles will go far with the tsunami cleanup. It's not too bad now but will get so much worse when the currents change. If you would like to talk to Norma about ideas or to coordinate your cleanup efforts, please call 503-3552998.

Dave Bagwell, who is fixing up the beautiful white house next to the Pink Place, told us he has just returned from working with the tsunami victims in Japan. He went to help them build homes, but felt he came home having learned more about the strength of the people from the experience. If you run into him, he has great stories to tell. Love is in the air! Laura and Rae Owens’ son Joshua Newton has chosen Laura’s birthday month of August 2013 to marry. On a Sunday afternoon they hiked to the top of Neahkahnie Mountain and Joshua went down on one knee and asked Katie Gleason for her hand. This will be a first for both! (She said yes).

ur big news this week is that our son, David, caught his first two chinook salmon Saturday in the Columbia River, directly under the Astoria bridge. In the Columbia River you can keep only one, so David kept the largest, of course– a 20-pounder. Seven people were in the charter boat.David caught two and his friend, Rip, caught one. David has hooked them before but never landed one. So after all those times trying to catch salmon, he finally caught his very first. Pretty exciting. Nothing tastes better than fresh salmon. Thanks David for sharing with us. At the Aug. 11 Cape Meares Community Association (CMCA) meeting, it was decided to have the Pig Roast and Silent Auction at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 2 the Cape Meares Community Center. This is a potluck/picnic. BJ Byron needs donated items for the silent auction. So, call BJ at 503-842-2738 if you have anything you would like to donate for this fundraiser. Also decided at the CMCA meeting was to again use email to send out community news, urgent messages and an occasional newsletter. To be placed on the Cape Meares email distribution list, email CapeMearesCommunity@gmail.com. Two or three volunteers are needed for a work party at the schoolhouse Saturday, Sept. 15.This will be maintenance on the windows and siding repair. Painters will be needed later that day, or a later day. JIm and Donna Bessire trimmed bushes around the community building. Bob Yolton and Mike Neal gave a presentation after the meeting about options for radios for use during power/phone outages.Their main point is that every home should have a NOAA All Hazards alert radio, available for as

little as $28 at many outlets and online. This radio in your home is as important as your smoke detector. Our tsunami siren is still alerting us on time every second Monday of the month. The system will be discontinued Jan. 1, 2013. I saw in the Oregonian that Terry Wall died July 27, 2012. Terry's husband, Chuck died three years ago. Terry was Friends member and Board member of Cape Meares Lighthouse and Wildlife Refuge when I was. She organized the guided tours and brought in many good ideas. She was very good working with children. She was knowledgeable about the area and the lighthouse. Terry and Chuck had one of the few full-size swimming pools in the Oceanside/Netarts area. Terry kept in good condition by taking morning swims in her own pool while I went in to Tillamook to the Y to go for my morning swim twice a week in the old, cold pool. I was sorry to hear she passed away. She and Chuck were married for 62 years – the same time James and I have been married. They had three sons and two daughters. Terry had many stories to tell when Chuck was in the service. They traveled a lot. It was that time of year again: Girls Weekend at the Steens' house in Cape Meares. Ellen welcomed Cherry Phillips from Lawton, Okla., Laura La Belle from Chicago, Ill. and Patti Cole from Portland to her home for their 17th annual reunion. It was a foggy weekend, but that was just fine with the gals, especially the two from the hot region of the country. They played board games, watched the Olympics, ate at Roseannas's and La Tea Da, walked the beach, admired their brick at the schoolhouse and bought smoked fish at Karla's. Cherry did some early Christmas shopping at the Blue Heron...enough to require a personal cashier to man a register! In general, however, the friends were happy just to be together, reminiscing about their work days at the Laughlin Group and past reunions and planning future jaunts. What happened to Ellen's husband, Pete, during this weekend? He and his brother, Thor, took Pete's drift boat and went tent camping over in Central Oregon. It was a nice, if hotter, get-away for them, too.

NOTES FROM THE COAST I found, and interviewed, Miss Oregon

I

found Miss Oregon, Nichole Mead, holding court at the Turnaround in Seaside. She was wearing a formal gown, heels, and holding a bouquet of roses among the tourists in tank tops and flipflops. Nichole Mead represents Oregon in the Miss America Pageant in Las Vegas, Nevada, on January 12, 2013. Mead is a graduate of the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a minor in Communications. She grew up watching the Miss Lincoln County Pageant with her mother. Becoming Miss Oregon and competing at the Miss America Pageant is the fulfillment of a lifetime dream. As Miss Oregon Mead will receive a $10,000 cash scholarship. I was in Seaside because my son and his family had arrived on their annual visit here, and we thought a trip to the boardwalk with all the tourist kitsch would be fun. We started spinning on the Merrygo-round where I was told over the loud speaker, Sir, please do not stand up on the horses when they were moving and, Sir! Please, Sir, would you quit leaning out trying to touch people! I asked Miss Oregon a few questions. Schu: Where are you from? Nicole: I’m from Newport, Oregon!

ASTORIA – Coast Community Radio, which operates radio stations KMUN-FM 91.9 in Astoria, KTCB-FM 89.5 in Tillamook and KCPB-FM 90.9 in Warrenton, has recently gone the extra mile to provide Tillamook listeners with a better signal and redundancy in case of emergency. With help from a $5,000 grant from the Oregon Cultural Trust, KTCB-FM's signal, broadcast at 89.5, is now being fed to a radio antenna atop Cape Meares via an Internet connection. The change meant installing a raft of new high-tech equipment at the mountain-top broadcast compound where KTCB's transmitter is located. For listeners, the result should be a clearer, more robust signal that is no longer impacted as much by poor weather conditions. The total cost for the project was $12,623. Coast Community Radio General Man-

beautiful and she may have put her left arm around me, but I can still remember my name. After the interview I took

my family to ride the bumper cars where I was admonished over the loud speaker, Sir, Sir! No head-on collisions, please!

ager Joanne Rideout said the changes were made in response to concerns from Tillamook listeners. “We talked it over with our tech consultants and decided that that our best option for getting a clearer signal was to transmit our radio signal between Astoria and Tillamook through an Internet connection instead of via regular tower-to-tower broadcast,” said Rideout. Rideout helped install the gear, assisting broadcast engineer Gray Haertig for two days to hook up more than $6,000 worth of new equipment at Cape Meares. “I learned a lot about how our broadcast systems operate by helping out with the install,” Rideout said. “Our equipment at Cape Meares now has redundancy because it's transmitted via the Web and also still has our former broadcast system for backup.” Currently KTCB's signal is simulcast

from Astoria, where Coast Community Radio's studios are located. The new equipment takes Coast Community Radio a step closer to being able to provide KTCB with its own local programming, when CCR is eventually able to open a studio in the Tillamook area. “This has been a long-term goal of the station for years,” she said. “We are getting there slowly and this is a big step.” The Internet connection for Tillamook is a behind-the-scenes operation that transmits the Web-based signal between two high altitude radio towers. Tillamook listeners hear the station as they always have, via radio broadcast, but with greater clarity. Coast Community Radio was founded in 1983 and has been around for almost 30 years.

PERFECT PEDRO Looking for a small dog who isn’t a yapper? Pedro just might the answer. This playful 9-month old Chihuahua has a great personality, is full of energy, gets along great with cats, likes to ride in a car and is smart as a whip. He picked up potty training within a week. When told to sit, he goes one better and lies down. But perhaps best of all, he isn’t one to bark incessantly as do many small dogs. Pedro is current with shots and neutered. This little guy could be the perfect companion.

BIBLE CREEK ROAD RACE

Rural route draws 50 racers from seven states, Canada BY MARY FAITH BELL mfbell@countrymedia.net

B

EAVER – The Willamette Motor Club of Salem held its annual racing event on Bible Creek Road Aug. 18 and 19. The race began 15 miles up Blaine, east of Beaver, in a remote southeastern corner of Tillamook County. Fifty cars from seven western states and Canada raced a curvy, uphill 2.38 mile course for the best time. Bible Creek Road is a narrow, windy, steep climb into the coast range, with relatively light traffic, which makes it perfect for the Northwest Hill Climb Association event. This was the 14th annual Bible Creek racing event, and a lot of the folks who came to race have been visiting Tillamook County for years to participate. They take over the Bible Creek turnaround on the upper Nestucca River with the race cars, and the trucks and trailers and RVs that haul them. Diversity is big in this club, and there are as many kinds of cars as there are drivers. The cars range from street legal small cars with speed and good handling to souped-up race cars like the two that took top honors: a custom Lotus 7 design with a V8 Corvette power train driven by Dave Kipperman of Roseburg, and a Subaru AWD “turbo charged monster” driven by Jennifer Ocker of Eugene. Kipperman has been running the course for 11 years. This year he broke all the records with his 1.58 minute time, which was not only the fastest this year, but his personal best time, the best time for his car, and the fastest ever recorded on this course. On the straightaway he was clocked at 106 mph. Kipperman won the “King of the Hill” award, his fifth this year on the Northwest Hill Climb Association circuit. Ocker has only been racing for two years. She took it up when her husband bought a Subaru STI. He races on the flat, but he doesn’t do hill races; Jennifer has claimed hill racing as her domain and she is quickly making a name for herself. She ran the Bible Creek course in 2.09, second only to Kipperman. She took home the “Queen of the Hill” award, her fourth on the circuit this year; additionally she won the award for “Top Door Slammer,” meaning top racing car with doors, as opposed to the open, custom-built car Kipperman drives. Other drivers range in age from 19 to 81. The elder driver in the event, Hal Gjermann of Redbluff, California, drives a ‘71 Datsun 240 Z. He has been coming to Tillamook County to race the Bible Creek course for 12 years. A few years ago, Hal started changing his car number annually to correspond with his age. This year his orange Datsun sports the number 81, and it ran the course in 2.37 with Hal behind the wheel. Gjermann is retired, and when he’s not racing, he ballroom dances with his lady friend four or five nights a week. The drivers take turns racing against the clock for the best time in their class. This makes for safer racing conditions and friendlier competition than if there were several cars on the road at the same time. And yet, it is a race, and every year someone goes off the road. That’s where the Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District comes in. Over the years of holding the event, the racing club has formed a partnership with the fire protection district. Firefighters, EMTs and emergency personnel volunteer their time to staff the race. They are ready on scene, in case of emergency. This is practical, in that Bible Creek is remote and it would take time for the Nestucca Fire crew to gear up and arrive in response to a 911 call. In exchange for the volunteer services of the fire protection district, the Willamette Motor Club of Salem purchases food for 125 local families every year for the South County Christmas Baskets program. On average, the racing club spends $1,000 per year to help feed Tillamook County families at Christmastime. This year it was light duty for Nestucca Rural Fire and Protection personnel: only one car ended up in the ditch, and no one was hurt. In the past seven years there have been two serious accidents with injuries resulting from racers losing control of their vehicles and flying off road and into trees. The club stages their events in Tillamook County with permits to close Bible Creek Road for up to 30 minutes at a time

for racing heats, and permits to occupy the Bible Creek turnaround, which is otherwise closed to overnight vehicles. In exchange for the right to use the road, the club contributes to its maintenance. They come out a few weeks in advance of the race and clear the shoulders of the road of debris, mow the shoulders and fill pot holes. They have planted trees when racers have damaged them, and last year they brought in a street sweeper to scrape moss from the road where it was growing on the pavement in shady areas. They diligently clean up oil spots, and disqualify cars that are leaking oil. They operate with a Boy Scouts motto, seeking to leave the area in better

condition than they found it. There are eight hill climbing races in the circuit each season; Bible Creek is the fifth race. The next one takes place in Boise, then Montana, and

the season wrap-up race is at Mary Hill in Washington. The top racer, Dave Kipperman, said he’ll continue on the circuit as long as he’s winning. “If I win in Boise I’ll go on to

Montana; I’d like to sweep the races this year.” He also said that his winning car is for sale: anyone

with $20,000 can take it home. He plans to spend the winter building a smaller, lighter, faster car to race next year.
