Clams are still there, officials say By Sayde Moser

Recreational clammers are asking, “Where have all the clams in Netarts Bay gone?” Fewer, and smaller, clams found on the bay have been causing concern among local residents. Even the Tillamook County commissioners are weighing in. But not to worry – the clams are still there, say state officials. They insist that a recent survey conducted on Netarts Bay by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife found no depletion of clams over the past year. On the other hand, that survey’s results are still preliminary, said Tony D’Andrea, ODFW’s shellfish assessment project leader. The agency’s analysis focused on the east side of Netarts Bay. Next year, the state will collect the same type of data from the west side. “The primary goal [of the survey] was to provide information on bay clams,” D’Andrea said during a presentation given recently at the Netarts Fire Hall. The information gathered provides ODFW with data on: • The different species of clams living in the bay • Where they abound and in what types of habitats • The average biomass of each type • And whether any of this information has fluctuated since the last time the bay was analyzed, in the 1970s. D’Andrea said one significant difference since data were gathered in the 1970s has been the introduction of non-native eelgrass. “We’re still in the early stages of understanding the effects

Tillamook attorney survives a nearly-fatal climbing accident By Chelsea Yarnell

Tillamook native Michael Kittell was in a tough situation. He and his wife, Taylor, were rock climbing in Washington’s Cascade Range. Up 200 feet from the ground, they realized they had gone offcourse. “It was getting difficult and kind of sketchy, because we weren’t on-route,” said Michael Kittell. “I realized the route was 15 feet over on a ridge.” He decided the pair needed to redirect their climbing course. To do so, Michael Kittell substituted a larger piece of climbing equipment for a smaller one, to reduce the rope’s drag. Then, he continued his attempt to change the climbers’ path. “The way I was traversing over was overhanging this little ledge,” he recalls. But by now, the day’s strenuous climb had caught up with Kittell and he decided the two of them had gone far enough. “I’m working my way back and I’m maybe six or seven feet away from the piece I put in. My arms are pumped out and my feet are slipping and I said, ‘Taylor, I’m falling.’ “I wasn’t too worried about it, because I had fallen on my own gear a lot of times.” But this time would prove differ-

However, his near-death experience hasn’t stopped Michael and his wife, Taylor (pictured at top, rapelling down the side of a cliff), from pursuing their joint passion for alpine climbing. ent. Michael Kittell grew up in Tillamook. He got his first taste of the outdoors in his own backyard. “My parents live up [the] Trask [River] and behind our house there was a bunch of woods and forest and blackberry bushes,” he said. “I would

go up there with my friends and we’d make trails through the woods. We’d do that all summer long.” Michael attended Tillamook High School, where he was a three-sport athlete in football, basketball and track. But organized sports weren’t his only athletic interest.

At age 15, Michael and a friend took a backpacking trip to climb South Sister in central Oregon’s Cascade Range. “[Hiking and alpine climbing] just evolved from there,” he said. “It just grows. It’s not an addiction, but it’s something that the more you do, the more you like it.” As his appetite for outdoor adventures grew, so did his fascination with photography. “I started entering photos into the Tillamook Country Fair and started getting blue ribbons,” he said. “It was really exciting. It went off from there.” After graduating from high school, Kittell attended Pomona College in Claremont, Calif., where he earned a bachelor’s degree in geology and met future wife Taylor. Then, the two enrolled in Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland. But before the start of law school, Michael and Taylor decided to climb all 55 of the 14,000-foot mountains (referred to as “fourteeners”) in Colorado. Their goal was to finish the feat in 55 days. They completed it in 40. Michael and Taylor continued to climb and photograph together as the years passed. “Climbing and photography go hand in hand,” said Michael. “The easiest way to get a good photo is to put yourself in a beautiful place, because then you don’t have to work

The best-behaved kids on the block By Sayde Moser

On any given school day at East Elementary in Tillamook, students can be found holding doors open for each other, saying their please and thank-yous, patiently awaiting their turns in line. “We’re floored with how few behavioral issues we’ve had so far [this school year],” said East Elementary School principal Greg English. What prompts the students’ good behavior? “We’ve tried to get a handle on why,” English said with a big grin. One reason might be the teachers’ tenure, said the school’s dean of students, Kim Seidel. “We have no new teachers this year,” said Seidel. “They all have at least a year under their belt. “So we know where the problem areas are in the school, we know which kids not to put together, and it’s just fine-tuning that system.” English also credits the school’s congenial atmo-

It’s been more than a year since a redesign of the intersection of Oregon Highway 6 and U.S. Highway 101 in downtown Tillamook was approved by the Oregon Department of Transportation. What’s been going on in the meantime? Although it may appear as if nothing’s moved ahead, said ODOT project manager Ken Kohl, the agency has been kept busy requesting the proper permits and finalizing plans. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2015. Completion of the project is expected two to three years later, said Kohl. The project will lengthen the U.S. Highway 101 couplet to the Hoquarton Slough, by extending Pacific Avenue north beyond First

Street and replacing the existing slough bridge with a new four-lane span. The new bridge will be up to 5 feet higher than the existing bridge. Main and Pacific avenues each will be widened by 2 feet from First to Fourth streets, adding turn lanes at a number of key intersections. “As we get closer to that construction date, more things are happening,” Kohl emphasized. Those things include having: • Consulting teams survey the area • Completing a geotechnical investigation for realignment of the highway and bridge • Fine-tuning the project design • And discussing options for the local businesses that will be affected by the project.

as hard.” Michael’s photography has been published and won awards. It had been featured three times on as that site’s picture of the day. “It’s a big deal,” he said. “It’s international, and there’s a lot of really good photographers that submit photos.” Last summer, the Kittells embarked on their fateful trip to Washington’s Cascade Mountains. “The climbing accident marks the peak of the crescendo of the climbing we were getting into,” said Michael. “More difficult, more aggressive climbs, really trying to push the envelope as much as we could.” During daylight on August 2, 2012, Michael and Taylor set out climbing near the Methow Valley. “It was up North Early Winter Spire and we climbed up a couple pitches [a pitch is a full rope length, each rope about 180 feet long],” Michael said. “My wife had started on the third [pitch]. She got to an overhanging point and was going to go up this gully, but it was really dirty and difficult.” That’s when Michael offered to take the lead and adjust their path. And that’s when he fell. “The piece caught me for a second and then popped out,” he said. “The next piece of protection was down and off to the right. It was far enough away that I ended up falling the 50 feet and hitting a ledge before the other piece could catch me.” The fall knocked Michael unconscious. “I remember waking up to my wife screaming and running, screaming for help because we’re on a little ledge in the middle of this thousandfoot cliff.” Miles from the nearest road, the Kittells needed help. “Eventually, over a number of hours, some other people came up,” said Michael. “They were the first ones to respond, and she was an ER nurse and he was an EMT.” A handful of nearby hang gliders radioed for help. A rescue helicopter arrived and transported Michael to Three Rivers Hospital in Brewster, Wash. From there, he was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he was treated for 18 broken bones including vertebrae, ribs and a collarbone. Michael also was diagnosed with a collapsed lung, bleeding in the brain, an obliterated eye socket, and severe damage to the right side of his face. He spent several days in the hospital for surgeries on his wrist and facial reconstruction. “The outpouring of support was totally stunning,” Michael said. “For months, I was getting cards from the community. It

On New Year’s Day some four months after his fall, he summitted Oregon’s Mt. Hood. Then, in May, the Kittells were on a climbing trip in northern Washington and returned to where Michael had fallen. “We spent a couple days in the Methow area and stayed up at Washington Pass. Everything was covered in snow, still, and we did skiing in the area. “But I wanted to go up right next to the climb and look at it,” said Michael, “because you never know how far it is. I went back and saw that it was probably bigger than 50 feet. You could see exactly where the fall occurred, the ledge and everything.” Close to the one-year anniversary of Michael’s accident, the couple went on a month-long climbing trip in the Andes of Peru. “It was everything I wanted it to be, coming out of

the accident,” he said. Now, a little more than a year since the fall, Michael recalls, “One of the things that went through my mind, as I was falling, was that I was never afraid. If I died, I died.

“I never thought I would live to see the day,” said Nehalem City Council President Dale Stockton, of Nehalem’s new city hall. “We’ve been talking about this for a long time and here it is,” Mayor Shirley Kalkhoven added. The two, along with other council members and city officials, were on hand for an open house Saturday afternoon, Oct. 12, to commemorate the occasion and greet guests who toured the facility that was finished the end of September. Fortunately for City Manager

Dale Shafer and Assistant City Recorder Melisa Kiefer, who spearheaded the move from their old offices, they didn’t have to move far. The new modular building, which arrived in three pieces, is just next door. The project was financed through money obtained through timber sales from 960 acres of timberland owned by the city. Pacific Mobile Structures was awarded the project based on its low bid of $560,943. Said Kalkhoven of the new structure, “It was finished on time and came in slightly under budget” – music to the ears of fellow council members.

SHELLFISH: it might be having on the bay.” That could be a large piece of the puzzle as to why certain clams are in abundance in certain areas, and not in others. Eelgrass was introduced to the Northwest in the 1930s. By the 1950s, it was well established in a variety of Washington estuaries. It didn’t become predominate in Oregon estuaries until the 1990s. In Netarts Bay, non-native eelgrass can be found alone or mixed with native eelgrass. (Native eelgrass has remained relatively unchanged in the past 40 years.) It’s generally in these eelgrass havens that broodstock populations of clams can be found. (Broodstock clam beds refer to those that are mature and plentiful enough to re-populate.) As for cockle clams, D’Andrea said, ODFW’s recent survey found them throughout Netarts Bay, with the highest numbers located in the intertidal areas – those covered at high tide, then uncovered at low tide. On average, .4 clams per square meter were surveyed. D’Andrea said that’s twice as many cockles in the intertidal areas as in the 1970s survey. “This indicates a certain amount of stability,” he said. Twenty-seven percent of the cockles were found in the shellfish preserve – that area of the bay not for

clamming. The subtidal zone – the area of the bay more-often covered by water – showcased much larger, older clams than the intertidal area. However, the largest population of cockles has yet to be uncovered, he said. ODFW will be getting to that portion of Netarts Bay next year. Gaper clams also need more analysis, said D’Andrea. He noted that the agency’s latest survey found lower densities of gapers than in the 1970s, with “patchy distribution” throughout the bay. Butter clams, on the other hand, were one of the most abundant found during ODFW’s analysis: more than 25 per square meter. A good chunk of these – 47 percent – were found in the shellfish preserve, and very few in the subtidal areas. Eelgrass seemed to play an interesting roll with the butter clams beds, said D’Andrea. Those clams generally were five to seven times larger when located in native or mixed eelgrass beds. Littleneck clams, which thrive best in the southern portion of Netarts Bay, also seemed to benefit from surrounding eelgrass. More than 50 percent of the littleneck clams were found in the shellfish preserve. “We’ve received anecdotal reports of a decrease in [littleneck clams],” said D’Andra. “However, they seem to have expanded

into other areas of the bay where they weren’t before. This may be co-related with non-native eelgrass populations.” So what does that all mean? For one thing, stay off the eelgrass, D’Andrea said. “If you must walk on it, avoid the densest parts.” Too much traffic across the eelgrass will have negative impacts on the clams living there. He also recommended refilling any holes dug while clamming. Leaving piles of wet sand on the beach can suffocate younger, immature clams. And, of course, keep out of the shellfish preserve. D’Andrea also reorted that ODFW reviewed whether an overabundance of commercial harvesting was affecting the sustainability of Netarts Bay’s clams. The agency found that only six commercial shellfish harvesters are active in the bay, three from Oregon and three from Washing-

ton.That’s a significant decrease from 2011, when there were 18 commercial harvesters. It was a slight increase since 2012, when there were five. The commercial take of cockles (the only type of clam allowed to be commercially harvested on the bay) also has decreased over the past three years, the ODFW report said. A little more than 2,400 pounds of cockles were removed from the intertidal zone this year, totaling 12 percent of the total harvest of cockles from Netarts Bay in 2012. That’s a significant decline from previous years. In 2012, 4,097 pounds of cockles were commercially harvested. The take in 2011 was 19,402 pounds. In contrast, recreational clamming has remained remarkably consistent over the last five years, said ODFW’s report, averaging 26,100 pounds each of the past three years.

Readers’ Open Forum Continue to support NCRD My husband and I moved to the area in April 2007 and we do live in paradise! Part of what I love is that we have a local facility for when I want to take a Zumba, Yoga, stretching or swimming class or visit and play cards/games. I’m grateful we have this resource in the event of an emergency, as a shelter. NCRD has something for everyone. Regardless of age, NCRD is vital in keeping us mentally and physically healthy. Please join us and vote yes to continue the services now available at NCRD. That there is no increase in taxes is a blessing and speaks volumes to the management of NCRD. Our yes vote is a “vote for community.” Please join us and vote yes. Don and Constance Shimek Nehalem

Do we really need a $6 million pool A few months ago I was approached to sign a petition to support a new swimming pool at NCRD. I agreed, thinking the board

would act in the best interest of our community. However, I am afraid this did not occur. A swimming pool with a price tag of $6 million is way out of line for our small community. We have many people living outside of our taxable area paying the same fees as those of us who are being taxed. These people are definitely supportive of the measure, needless to say I would be too, knowing it wouldn’t cost me anything. I am all for a swimming pool at NCRD, but one that we as a community can afford. Please consider what is best for all when casting your ballot. Jan Markle Nehalem

Tourism is a four letter word Jobs! If for no other reason to vote yes on the lodging tax measure on Nov. 5, do it for the potential job creation! I’ve heard negative arguments regarding money going to tourism promotion and I’ve even heard from people they don’t want more money going to fix county roads.

If there is one thing we should all agree on it is that we want to create more jobs! Stronger tourism can do that. Does it take more visitors? Not exactly.  It takes creating a better experience to keep visitors in our county longer and increase destination spending. The ability to generate more overnight stays in our county will boost hiring and hours in the hospitality sector. Yes, those are often lower paying jobs (but still jobs). What about all the secondary jobs created?  The increased demand the hospitality industry will have for plumbers, electricians, contractors, painters, etc.? These are just some clear examples; I encourage you to look at the cyclical and multiplied effects of what infusing approximately $1.4 million dollars from visitors into our local economy, as a whole, can do for Tillamook County and vote Yes on Nov. 5.  Justin Aufdermauer Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director

I urge you to vote yes for NCRD In November 2008

North County Recreation District voters by a vote of 1,085 yes to 1,067 no narrowly approved an option levy funding the NCRD. The district was emerging from a tough time including closure due to a lack of operating funds. Then board president Peter Nunn was appointed district general manager. Along with Marie Ziemicki there is now an entire new elected board of directors. With the hard work of dedicated district employees, of many volunteers, of Mr. Nunn and the board, the NCRD has progressed with ever-larger public participation. New financial systems are in place, annual audits are positive. The district is dedicated to the greatest possible public participation. Facility use is up. When first established, a district tax base rate was adopted to provide programs and perform minor maintenance of the rented facilities. In 2002 the district assumed facilities ownership along with responsibility for all maintenance. Over time it became apparent the tax base was

Guest Column Ballot Measure 29-133 – How the money paid by tourists will be invested in our county by The Board of Commissioners for Tillamook County One of the frequently asked questions regarding the proposed Transient Lodging Tax (TLT) is how the money will be spent. This is a very good question, and as your elected Board of County Commissioners, we spent hours in public hearings and deliberations before crafting and adopting what we believe is a responsible approach to determining that answer. Tillamook County Ordinance #74 is the Tillamook County Transient Lodging Tax Authorizing Ordinance. We unanimously adopted it on July 17, 2013. It will become effective on the first day of January 2014, if you, the voters approve it at the November election. Tillamook County Ordinance #75 is the Tillamook County Transient Lodging Tax Implementing Ordinance. We also unanimously adopted this ordinance on July 17, 2013. It will become effective on the first day of January 2014 if you approve Ordinance #74 in November. Ordinance #74 authorizes the tax and sets the tax rate. Ordinance #75 deals with administrative procedures for collection, refunds and enforcement. It also estab-

lishes penalties, creates a tax review committee and provides a process for allocation of the funds. In section 12 of Ordinance #74 we specify that 70 percent of the tax be allocated to tourism and tourism related facilities. This is required by Oregon State Statute. Also in Ordinance #74 we specify that the remaining 30 percent, after collection costs, be deposited in the Tillamook County Road Fund to be used for the maintenance of Tillamook County roads. Since the 70 percent required to be spent on tourism and tourism related facilities is an ongoing tax to be paid by tourists, we felt it was prudent to establish an annual process for making allocation and investment decisions, as the needs of the County change over time. It becomes another part of our annual County budget process, and the Board of County Commissioners will have the final approving authority as we do for every other department of the County. In section 15 of Ordinance #75, we established a clearly defined process for an annual review, including the requirement for a public hearing to be conducted each year for consideration of the proposed 70% allocations for the year, together with

a review of the prior year expenditures. While the final decision on all expenditures rests with the Board of County Commissioners, we are authorized to contract with the Economic Development Council of Tillamook County or a Tourism-promotion Agency (“contracting entity”) to allocate and distribute the funds, subject to the established budgetary and review process. The terms of the contract between the Board of County Commissioners and the contracting entity will be subject to modification or termination by the Board of County Commissioners at any time, so while we may be delegating some authority, we will not be abdicating any responsibility. Section 15 of Ordinance #75 requires that the Contracting Entity annually conduct a county-wide needs assessment of tourism related facilities throughout the County and that it develop and amend as necessary County-wide/regional strategies for tourism promotion. It also requires that a committee comprised of citizens, transient lodging providers, local government representatives, members of tourism promotion agencies and possibly independent consultants from the tourism promotion industry be con-

vened at least twice annually to advise the Contracting Entity on the policies for the uses of TLT funds, the strategies for tourism promotions and the needs assessment for tourism related facilities. The specific membership and terms of the committee members is subject to the control of the Board of County Commissioners through the contract with the Contracting Entity. In preparing this ordinance, we took many hours of public input and testimony that was incorporated in the final draft. We believe that this ordinance provides for transparency, input from stakeholders and a chance for the public to have a say, each year, in how the funds are allocated. As your elected County Commissioners, we unanimously support this proposed tax on visitors to our County, and ask you to pass it. The resulting revenue that will be generated from those who visit here, instead of those who live here, will have a dramatic impact on the improvement and safety of our roads, as well as the health and growth of our local economy through the creation of new jobs. It is a proposal that is long overdue. Please join us in supporting and passing measure 29-133. It just makes sense.

Museum seeks donations LETTERS: for the Festival of Trees Plans are underway for the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum’s only fundraiser, the Festival of Trees. This year marks the 10th anniversary of this event and to mark the occasion, the museum is asking the community for donations of bird-themed ornaments that will be placed on a community tree entitled “Birds of a Feather.” Carla Albright of the Festival committee explained, “This will give an opportunity for those who can’t decorate an entire tree to participate in the fun.” “We have chosen to dedicate this year’s proceeds toward a bird watching station at Kilchis Point Reserve,” said museum director Gary Albright. “There are amazing bird populations along Tillamook Bay, both migratory and permanent, and we want to protect those species while also providing a safe place for our visitors to observe them.” Those wishing to drop off donations of bird ornaments, tiny bird houses, and/ or nests can do so during regular museum hours, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday from now until Thanksgiving. The donations will be placed on the tree by volunteers and the decorated tree will remain in the Museum for the holiday season. The Festival’s Gala Event and Silent Auction will take place Friday, Dec. 13,

insufficient to operate the programs desired by the public plus maintain buildings and property. As a result maintenance was unable to keep pace with the work that needed to be done. Since the passage of the option levy in 2008 financial and operational reforms have been adopted. Major maintenance projects have been accomplished, roofs replaced, siding replaced, an underground oil tank decommissioned and the lower parking lot repaved. The auditorium floor supports were strengthened and the floors were re-finished, once again allowing use by large groups. With some district money plus the help of grants and donations by local governments, civic groups and individuals a generator was purchased allowing the district to operate as an emergency shelter when needed. The board of directors and general manager Nunn unanimously request voter renewal of our current option levy. John Coopersmith Nehalem

Volunteer training for CARE’s warming center Oct. 29 Those interested in volunteering at the warming center should plan to attend an informational meeting and training Oct. 29 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the warming center’s location, 2203 Fourth St. (near Sacred Heart Catholic Church). The warming center is only open during danger-


ous weather conditions, such as high wind warnings, flood warnings or other severe weather warnings. It is completely staffed by volunteers. With no funding available at all, volunteers are vital to the survival of Tillamook County’s homeless population during severely cold, wet and or

windy nights. All volunteers must pass a background check and complete the training. It takes two volunteers per shift in order to open the center. If there aren’t enough volunteers, the center can’t open. For more information, call CARE at 503-842-5261.

classrooms or the entire school can set monthly PAWS goals. East Elementary’s initial monthly goal was to earn 3,000 PAWS school-wide for a Halloween “monster jam” party. That goal was exceeded weeks ago, English said. In addition to PAWS goal setting, the school holds

weekly drawings to encourage good behavior. “It’s all about trying to make our school more positive, so the kids want to be here,” English said. That focus on behavior has paid off in a variety of other ways. Last month, 65 percent of the students at East had perfect atten-

dance. “We were absolutely amazed by that,” said English. Those with perfect attendance were rewarded with a “Wii party.” Said English, “This has been my eighth year here at East and it’s more fun this year than ever before.”

A theory on the missing clams I recently read a letter to the editor lamenting the lack of crabs in Netarts Bay. I agree. The other evening I counted 144 seals on the sand bar; then the next morning more than 10 pelicans on the same sand bar. Also on another bar were over 200 cormorants. Why do you think there are few fish, crabs, or clams? This same condition exists on every bay on the coast. When we lived here 50 years ago, there were no pelicans, some cormorants and a few seals, and lots of sea food. Caspian Terns take millions of down-stream migrant salmonids in the lower Columbia. Sea Lions are devastating salmon below Bonneville dam and below the Oregon City falls. We all enjoy viewing wildlife species, although most of us also enjoy harvesting the tasty morsels from the sea. A parallel situation exists with big game species. This situation has been magnified by the Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife and our legislatures playing the politically correct game and failing to control the explosion of cougar and bear populations. So what do these geniuses do for our plunging game animal population but throw them an anchor by encouraging the introduction of the wolf, an even more efficient killer. The animal rights crowd was not satisfied with destroying Oregon’s once great timber industry with their ridiculous spotted owl farce and all their lawsuits stopping nearly all timber sales on BLM and Federal Forest Service land. Oregon’s press and electronic media must dredge up some intellectual integrity and expose the devastation done to our state by this small group of selfish, extremist environmentalists.

October is United Way month in Tillamook County. As you may be asking yourself what that means to you, I’d like to take a moment to share what it means to those in need in our community. United Way month means that people suffering financial hardship can stay in their homes, they can keep their heat on in the cold of winter, they are able afford crucial medications, and can afford to travel to medical appointments. Community Action Resource Enterprises (CARE) is your local non-profit antipoverty agency. Through CARE, Tillamook County is working hard to alleviate the effects of poverty. This work is made possible through the very generous donations of the community. One of the places we see this amazing generosity is in the Tillamook County United Way Campaign. Each year businesses and individuals come together in the month of October to make a bold statement. They say we care about our friends and neighbors in Tillamook County by donating $60,000 or more to be used to help people in Tillamook County through the 18 member agencies. In our community of just over 25,000 people this is amazing! This month as you make your donation, or participate in a United Way activity, you can watch the thermometer rise on the courthouse steps and know that you are a part of this amazing campaign in this very generous

e are one of the few counties in the state without a transient lodging tax. Travelers are accustomed to paying it, so why shouldn’t we benefit from it? The extra revenue will help fund county road maintenance and that is critical to all of us. As president of the Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District board, I know how damaging bad roads are on our vehicles and how dangerous they can be to road safety. This tourist tax is one more way to help keep our roads safe over the long term. – Ken Crowe

nesses. “We work with them to assist with relocation and compensate them once we’ve acquired the property,” he said. The current phase of the project – the right-of-way process – takes time to initiate, Kohl said. “Generally, it can take up to a year depending on the complexity of the project. “This [project] was more complex than most,” he said, “because we’re impacting several different businesses and there are buildings that we have to acquire to move forward.” Kohl said the state has begun discussions with those businesses that will need to move so as to jump-start the relocation process.

Neah-Kah-Nie distrct pleased with ‘school report card’ ranking By Joe Wrabek

“School report cards” for 2012-13 have been released by the Oregon Department of Education, and the Neah-KahNie School District, which covers the northern one-third of Tillamook County, says it did well. Neah-Kah-Nie High School, Garibaldi Grade School and Nehalem Elementary School all scored “Level 4” (above average) on the Department of Education’s report card. Neah-Kah-Nie Middle School scored at level 5, placing it in the top 10 percent of schools statewide. Just 114 schools in Oregon were scored at level 5, said Neah-Kah-Nie district superintendent Paul Erlebach. “Staff makes a difference,” said Erlebach, who sent a congratulatory e-mail to school staff when the results came out. The “report card” compares the Neah-Kah-Nie to schools with similar demographics and to schools statewide. The state’s report cards aren’t often noticed by parents, but they’re pored over by educators looking for areas where their education “delivery” can be improved. For example, grade 11 writing scores for NKN students were 41.9, said Erlebach, while the statewide average was 61. “That’s an area to target,” he said. High school math scores

were 58.5; schools comparable to NKN were at 65.5. Said Erlebach, “We’ve hired two teachers who can teach advanced math.” He added, “How we benefit is we look at the results, share them with teachers and come up with an action plan. We’re implementing all the time.” The state’s report card also noted that 61 percent of the students in grades K-5 in the Neah-Kah-Nie School District are “economically disadvantaged.” Fifteen percent of the students in grades K-3, and 17 percent in grades 4-5, have disabilities, the report card said. But 87.5 percent of Neah-Kah-Nie High School’s students graduate within four years, and 90.6 percent get a diploma or GED within five years. More than 95 percent of those “economically disadvantaged” students are on track to graduate, the report card said. Meantime, Neah-Kah-Nie School District spends more per pupil than do other districts – $17,647 compared to a statewide average of $9,903. (The Oregon Department of Education considers $11,970 per pupil to be adequate.) “We’re excited” about the report card, Erlebach said, “but we’re not going to rest on our laurels.” Neah-Kah-Nie’s report card can be viewed at http://www. reports.aspx (select “NeahKah-Nie SD 56” from the list of districts).

Major federal grant benefits Tillamook County trails By Sayde Moser

Three separate non-motorized trails in Tillamook County have been selected for funding by the Recreation Trails Program. The program provides states with federal funds to develop and maintain recreational trails for motorized and non-motorized uses. The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is the agency in Oregon responsible for administering the funds, $235,000 of which landed in Tillamook County. “We got nearly 25 percent of the money available right here in this county for nonmotorized trails,” said Julie Chick of the local Tillamook Estuaries Partnership. “That’s pretty exciting.” The final installment of the Tillamook County Water Trail guidebooks, which will encompass Netarts Bay, will be underwritten with $25,000 in program funds, Chick said. The Tillamook Estuaries Partnership has developed water trail guides for the Nehalem, Tillamook and Nestucca rivers, as well as Sandlake. “Through funding like this, we’re able to keep [the guide books] free to the public,” said Chick. Kilchis Point Reserve, an interpretive walking trail in Bay City owned and maintained by the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum, received $50,000 for the fourth phase of that project. According to museum executive director Gary Albright, that phase includes graveling the seven-tenths of a mile of walking trails. The federal funds will pay for half of that work, Albright said. The third local nonmotorized project funded was the Oregon Coast Trail’s

“A lot of the work that goes into [the pre-construction phase] involves making sure we minimize the impact we’ll have on businesses and keep them open,” Kohl said. Which, he said, is why the construction phase is estimated to take more than two years. “We don’t want to have everything torn up at once, because that would really hinder businesses downtown,” said Kohl. That said, a small number of local businesses will be displaced entirely as ODOT acquires those properties necessary to accommodate the intersection redesign. Kohl said there are federal rules that ODOT must follow to appraise and offer proper compensation to the busi-

When the Portland Public School District was offered a chance to apply for a technology-based grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Portland’s executive director of teaching and learning, Melissa Goff, said she wanted to partner with another Oregon district. She asked Drew Hinds, an education specialist at the Oregon Department of Education, for a referral. Hinds led Goff to the Tillamook School District. “I just got a call one day and [Goff] asked if we wanted to partner with her and oh, by the way, the application was due tomorrow,” said Melissa Radcliffe, the titles program manager at the Tillamook district. But when Radcliffe heard the grant was in the millions of dollars, “That made me perk up,” she said. The Gates grant is offered only to the largest school districts in the nation. Of those, the Portland district is the smallest. What does that mean for Tillamook? These are funds that normally would be completely out of reach. The grant application process has three phases. The first was all about assessing where you are as a district in terms of technology, Radcliffe said. “If nothing else, it’s pushing us towards having those conversations about what our vision is as a district.”

Of the districts that applied for the grant, 20 were approved for phase one, including Tillamook and Portland. Each district then was awarded $100,000 for grant writing. Grant proposals are due by the end of December. In January, each of the 20 districts will present its proposal to a panel. Ten of the 20 school districts will be awarded another grant, although Radcliffe said it’s unclear how the Portland and Tillamook districts would divide the money. Goff told Radcliff she became interested in the Tillamook School District because of its uses of technology in the classroom. “Tillamook has always been an innovative district,” Radcliffe said. About seven years ago, the district began purchasing interactive white boards, or “smart boards,” to replace the traditional chalkboards. “We have them in more than 95 percent of our classrooms, which is kind of unheard of,” said Radcliff. What’s more, she said, 90 percent of the district’s teachers have said they use their “smart board” each day. Then, two years ago the district made a big push for putting iPads in its classrooms. The goal was to find a more cost-effective way to stay up to date on the most current information available, especially in science, where things change almost daily. Instead of purchasing textbooks year after year or running the risk of

using an outdated curriculum, Tillamook’s teachers now can plug into digital “textbooks” written by highly qualified teachers in California. As new information and data become available, the “books” update automatically, so teachers always have the latest-available information. “We had to work closely with [the Oregon Department of Education] to be able to do that,” Radcliffe said, “because we had to show that the online curriculum, while free to use, was also rigorous and challenging for our students.” It was this switch to a digital curriculum that prompted the Department of Education’s Hinds to refer Goff to Tillamook as a partner for the Gates grant. “What’s nice is that the three areas that Portland Public [School District] is focusing on are also our main areas of focus,” said Radcliffe “So we’re very similar that way, even though they’re the largest district in the state.” Those three areas of focus are STEM (science, technology, engineering and math classes), place-based education (using the local natural environment to teach science courses) and the introduction of technology into classrooms. Added Radcliffe, “We know our kids are ‘digital natives.’ We need to be able to help them understand the global world and be problem solvers in ethical and responsible ways.”

‘10 scenes of horror’ coming to Tillamook By Chelsea Yarnell

A haunted house in Tillamook offered by a mixed martial-arts gym? That’s a haunted house whose Halloween theme is “10 scenes of horror and gore”? Welcome to Blend of Zen. “Blend of Zen really stands for creative expression. It’s an opportunity to express ourselves creatively,” said owner Eric Beggs said. He said the gym’s

haunted house, scheduled for Oct. 25 and 26, will be geared to a mature audience, given its gory scenes. “The demographics that Blend of Zen has always targeted with our mixed martial arts is between the ages of 14 and 24,” Beggs said. The haunted house will consist of 10 different booths set up around the gym and will take visitors about 10 minutes to walk through. Beggs said his favorite booth is, “The caged maniac; it’s probably the

scariest scene.” Volunteer actors, many of whom participate in the mixed martial-arts program at Blend of Zen, will play the characters in the haunted house. More volunteers are needed, added Beggs. Admission will be $5 each, with refreshments available for purchase. “The proceeds from the haunted house will go to run our gym,” Beggs said. “We’re a nonprofit gym, so we’ll work with anyone regardless of their financial abilities.” Beggs hopes that host-

ing the haunted house will provide a safe place to enjoy a scary Halloween experience. “The primary motivation for everything that we do, whether it’s the haunted house or a mixed martial-arts expo, whatever our event is, it’s for healthy entertainment purposes for the community,” he said. Beggs said the haunted house will run from 5-9 p.m. and is not suitable for children younger than 12. Blend of Zen is at 1000 N. Main St., suite 10. For more information, call Beggs at 503-718-1293.

Flood insurance forum’s consensus: mitigate and delay By Sayde Moser

“The first step is to delay implementation of this thing, to collect more consistent and accurate information.” So said Congressman Kurt Schrader when he spoke to a full house Oct. 21 regarding issues that have arisen with implementation of the BiggertWaters Reform Act, which took effect Oct. 1. The federal act mandates that the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which runs the flood insurance program, raise flood insurance rates to repay the losses incurred by insurance claims from Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Hurricane Sandy last year – and to make the flood insurance program selfsupporting. “This is a huge issue, not just for Tillamook County but for the entire nation,” Schrader told the crowd at the Officers’ Mess Hall at the Port of Tillamook Bay industrial park south of downtown Tillamook. In 1968, the National Flood Insurance Program began offering flood insurance at subsidized rates. However, the Biggert-Waters Reform Act phases out, and sometimes removes altogether, the subsidies. On top of that, unincorporated Tillamook County and the community of Rockaway Beach have lost their flood insurance discount under the Community Rating System, which is administered by FEMA. Whereas Tillamook County previously received a 20 percent discount and Rockaway Beach a 15 percent discount on their flood insurance rates, now they’ll be getting nothing. Christine Shirley, the National Flood Insurance Program coordinator for the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development, said it’s possible to get back onto the rating system, but that process can take more than two years. So at least in the near term, the rates in Til-

lamook County and Rockaway Beach will see additional increases. Still, said Shirley, building owners do have ways to reduce their rates. One mitigation tactic is to install flood vents in a structure’s crawl spaces. “This is the most important thing you can do to reduce costs,” she said. “You’ll save substantial money on your rates.” If your building doesn’t have a crawl space, said Shirley, there are only very limited mitigation options available. Another potential ratereducer is providing a certified elevation analysis, Shirley said. If you’ve had one done in the past for insurance reasons, “dig it out and get it to your insurance agent,” she said. “It will help keep your rates down.” Yet many at Schrader’s Monday-morning forum considered these mitigation remedies wholly inadequate. “We’re going into crisis mode because we haven’t had the time to react and respond properly,” said Jennifer Purcell, president of the Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. Tillamook County Commissioner Mark Labhart suggested to Schrader that FEMA conduct an affordability study before moving forward with the new rates. “Once it’s done, it may show that in many cases there are affordability issues across the nation,” said Labhart. He also suggested a moregraduated payment schedule to phase in the Biggert-Waters Act insurance increases. “We are asking Congress to slow this program down and make it more affordable,” he said. “I believe FEMA does have the ability to do this if given direction by Congress.” Although Schrader said he supported delaying implementation of Biggert-Waters until at least an affordability study could be conducted, and preferably until more accurate flood-zone maps are developed for Tillamook County, he didn’t say whether such a delay was feasible.

Tillamook School District partners with Portland for multimillion-dollar tech grant

When asked why the Big Foot Classic cross county course was difficult, Pirate runners Annie-RohwederRomig and Roan Childress simultaneously said, “The hills!” On Oct. 15, Neah-Kah-Nie hosted the Big Foot Classic at Twin Rocks Friends Camp in Rockaway Beach. Over 10 high school cross country teams competed on the challenging course. The race earns its name from one of the hiking trails that the 5,000-meter race travels on. Not only is there an intense climb and descent, but also occasional logs and other obstacles littering the path. The difficulty of the course was evident in the finishing times, slower than most athletes’ season average. Yet, setting a personal record is not always the goal of the day. Sometimes it’s just about running faster than the other team, and that’s what the Pirates did. “Phenomenal,” Head Cross Country Coach Brett



Big Foot Classic: Neah-Kah-Nie boys win Duer said in reference to the boy’s team performance. “We didn’t place as well at NWL Districts last week. We came in second to Riverdale, but we beat them today.” Senior Logan RohwederRomig’s finished first overall with a time of 18:04. He was followed by teammate Julian Croman in second and Matt Clayton in fifth (18:38, 19:25). Colby Hixon and BJ Dillard rounded out the top five for the Pirates in seventh and 28th place respectively (19:35, 21:53). Finishing with four runners in the top 10, the NeahKah-Nie boy’s team won the meet, beating Riverdale High School in second, and Rainer High School in third. Three girls represented the Pirates at the Bigfoot Classic. Annie Rohweder-Romig ran 22:46 for a second place finish, nearly two minutes faster than last year. Roan Childress finished in 15th (26:15) and Natasha Stein came in 32nd (30:55). Without a fourth or fifth runner, the girls were ineligible for team scoring. “It’s hard competing without a full team,” Duer said.

“But, they were individually pumped trying their best.” The Pirates are off to Districts on Thursday at the Tualatin Hills Recreation Center in Beaverton, Ore. Girls varsity runs at 3 p.m. and the boys varsity runs at 3:45. Junior varsity racing will begin at 4:30 p.m. In order to move onto State from Districts, individuals must place in the top five, and teams in the top two. According to, Annie Rohweder-Romig’s best time of the season has her seeded sixth. Julian Croman’s season best also has him ranked sixth in the District. Tillamook Junior High also competed at the Bigfoot Classic. Sage Bailey finished in fifth place overall for the girls and Ben Polman finished in 11th for the boys. Second year junior high coach, Nancy Bernard was very proud of her athletes’ races and is amazed at the progress they’ve made over the season. “Each student has improved so much, by minutes. As a team, we’ve improved by 20 minutes or more,” Bernard said.

Joel Lee adopted this adorable dachshund (formerly known as Porkchop) at the Yappy Days event in Pacific City. Lee told the Headlight Herald he would rename his dog Bilbo Waggins.

The council informally discussed the new transient room tax rate proposed by the county commissioners at their June 3 meeting and decided to make it an official agenda item June 17 to try and clarify some of their questions. City Manager Paul Wyntergreen gave the council the rundown, but stated that one of the issues seems to be the new pieces of information that keep coming up. “It’s a lot of information and it is morphing all the time,” he said, adding that the two ordinances on this matter that will be discussed in two public hearings with the commissioners on June 26 and July 10 came in only minutes before the council meeting – making it difficult to review them in much detail. The proposed transient lodging tax (“even the acronyms are shifting as we speak,” Wyntergreen told the council) would appear on the November ballot as a nine percent tax with an eight percent credit back to the cities that already have a TLT of their own. Seventy percent of the money raised would be cycled back into promoting tourism in the county. The other 30 percent has

Yappy Days took place on Saturday June 15, on the sidewalk in front of the Inn at Cape Kiwanda in Pacific City. More than 100 people and more than 30 dogs attended. Booths offered homemade dog sweaters, treats and toys, face painting for people, raffles of items interesting to humans as well as dogs, dog baths, a microchip insertion service, and general information from the animal shelter. There was a dog wash and Sydney Elliott of Beaver sang with guitar accompaniment. The event, which has been held annually since 2008, is mounted by the Inn for the benefit of the Tillamook Animal Shelter. According to Susanne Johnson, chairman this year, Yappy Days has raised about $5000 for the shelter in the last five years. Among other help they offer, the shelter rescues dogs and finds them homes. Joel Lee came to Cape Kiwanda this Saturday from Eugene expressly to claim the dachshund he’d picked out online. “Yappy Days is another unique happening here. It celebrates the dog-friendliness of the Cape,” said Jeremy Strober, whose three children, Cole, 13, Rachel, 9, and Gus, 16, manned the dog wash operation. According to Rachel, the largest dog they bathed was Maya, a golden retriever; the smallest was Barry, a terrier. Look for Yappy Days next year, same place, Saturday before Fathers Day as usual.

Mooks’ soccer wins again by Chelsea Yarnell The fog set in over Doc Adams field Thursday night, making it difficult to even see across the field, but that didn’t stop the Tillamook boy’s soccer team from defeating Yamhill-Carlton 8-0. In the first five minutes of the game, Ernesto Mondragon scored a goal for the Cheesemakers, and would follow with two more goals in the first half (assists from Pablo Garcia and Leeroy Mendez). Leading 3-0 into the second half, the Cheesemakers didn’t let up on their attack. Ten minutes in, Mendez scored a penalty kick. A few minutes later, Mondragon scored his fourth goal of the evening with an assist from Mendez. As if a 5-0 lead wasn’t enough, Tillamook scored three additional goals within minutes of each other. Mendez scored his second goal of the night, 33 minutes into the second half. Two minutes later, Axel Ramirez scored the seventh goal for the Cheesemakers, his first goal all season. And then another two minutes later, Ector Vargas scored the eighth and final goal for Tillamook (also his first goal of the season) to leave the final score 8-0. Mondragon had assists on the last two goals of the game. “ The highlight of the evening was the fun they had,” Head Coach Brian Reynolds said. “They were loose, they had fun.” Tillamook kept Yamhill-Carlton scoreless all season including their Sept. 26 matchup when the Cheesemakers won 4-0. The Cheesemakers play Thursday at Banks/Vernonia at 4:15 p.m. The Mooks are back at home on Tuesday for their last home game of the year against Scappoose starting at 7 p.m.

Tillamook and Neah-Kah-Nie host senior volleyball night by Chelsea Yarnell

Thursday night was senior volleyball night for both Tillamook and Neah-Kah-Nie high schools. Cheesemaker volleyball played against Astoria and lost 0-3 (20-25, 19-25, 10-25). Tillamook honored their three seniors: Macy O’Donnell, Lindsey Rieger, and Lexi Lourenzo. “Macy is a solid player all the way around,” Head Coach Meagan Streeter said. “I usually played her as the right side hitter, but I knew if I needed someone to fill in another position, I could count on her. She worked hard all season and improved greatly.” Lindsey Rieger was also honored. “Lind-

sey did a great job in the front row all season long. She is a good middle blocker and hitter and excels at hitting slides,” Streeter said. “She hit one of these to score one of the last points of the league season in the game against Astoria.” After missing the Oct. 15 game against Yamhill-Carlton because of an arm injury, senior Lexi Lourenzo was back for Thursday night’s game. “Lexi is co-team captain and provides solid leadership for the team. She has an excellent jump float serve and good passing skills,” Streeter said. “She always has a smile on her face and works hard. In the game against Astoria, she showed off her passing skills and was a solid presence in the back row.” Neah-Kah-Nie also hosted their senior volleyball night on Thursday. Seniors Kristina

The Pirates took an early lead in the first set, 8-0, but failed to keep the marginal lead as the Columbians brought the set score closer, 10-8. The set became a close back and forth game as it tied up at 18-18, but the Columbians out-scored the Pirates to win the watch

25-21. The final two sets were not as much of a battle. Rainer easily won them 25-11 and 25-15. “They played fine,” Head Coach Jacque Vandecoevering said. “We didn’t do a normal rotation because it wasn’t a league game.” Neah-Kah-Nie’s JV team also played Thursday night.

The Eyes of Thailand a call to action

Dylan, Jack, Kate and Audrey. Jim was active in Tillamook City government for many years and still enjoys fishing, clamming and golf games with friends. Carol was active as a charter member in a Tillamook philanthropic group and worked for a local gift and sporting goods store in the office, retiring in 1985. They now spend several winter months in Palm Desert, Calif. with friends from all over the world. With Carol’s love of cooking and planning, many celebrations with food and drink have been held in their Tillamook home. They will celebrate their 60th anniversary with their family.


Film producer/director Windy Borman knew she had to something

The Eyes of Thailand is the real-life story of two elephant survivors, who, after losing their legs from stepping on a landmine, are given a second chance to walk again, thanks to Soraida Salwala , who opened the world’s first Asian elephant hospital in 1993. Operated by Friends of the Asian Elephant (FAE), the 200-acre facility includes elephant infirmaries, an operating area and a nursery for baby elephants. To date, Salwala and Dr. Preecha Phuangkum have treated over 3,500 Asian elephants for everything from eye infections and stomach problems to knife wounds, gunshot wounds, and car accidents. However, in 1999, they faced their biggest challenge yet: how to treat an elephant that had stepped on a landmine. Narrated by Ashley Judd, the film is directed and produced by former Neah-Kah-Nie High student Windy Borman, along with award-winning filmmaker Tim VandeSteeg. Since its world premier in April 2012 at the Newport Beach Film Festival, the critically acclaimed 63-minute-long documentary has received numerous awards. Asked what inspired her to make this film, Borman says on the film’s website, “In 2007, I was following a theatre company in Thailand for two months to film their behind-the-scenes promotional video. One day, they visited FAE’s Elephant Hospital and Soraida Salwala surprised us, spoke to me on camera for two hours, and then invited us to meet Motala and Baby Mosha, two elephant landmine survivors. At that point, they had saved their lives, but they didn’t know if they could help them walk again. I knew I’d stumbled onto a story that I couldn’t leave, so Soraida and I stayed in touch, and in 2009, I flew back to Thailand to film the prosthesis building process.” Borman directed and filmed The Eyes of Thailand, so her role behind the camera was quite literally “behind the camera.” She shot 95 percent of the footage throughout three trips to Thailand. In 2009, she hired a local camera operator for two days when the elephants were getting their prostheses. “I knew I needed a second camera on site for coverage. Otherwise, it was all me out of necessity,” says Borman. The film chronicles Soraida Salwala’s efforts to help Motala, a 50-year-old elephant who stepped on a landmine in 1999 while she and her owner were logging along the Burmese border. Although her front leg was seriously injured,

she walked for three days to arrive at FAE’s elephant hospital. After 10 years of surgery and rehabilitation, Motala received her first prosthetic limb built by a human orthopedist in August 2009. Unfortunately, news of Motala’s injury did not curb elephant landmine accidents. In 2006, Mosha stepped on a landmine when she was just 7 months old. Her injuries healed faster than Motala’s because her age and in June 2008 she received her first prosthetic limb. She will need additional prostheses built throughout her lifetime, which can span 60 to 80 years. Where others would have given up, Salwala says she continues to fight because “the elephants cannot fight, they cannot speak, so I am speaking on their behalf.” During the past year, Borman has “traveled with the film” at its screening throughout the United Stated and abroad. Most recently, The Eyes of Thailand was shown at the Hoffman Center in Manzanita, while Borman enjoyed a two to three week break on a visit to the north Oregon coast where she lived and attended school for six years during the 1990s. The questions from the audience after seeing the film are generally the same, says Borman, and the audience at the Hoffman Center was not different – “How are the elephants doing?” And, “Is it true the United States has not signed the treaty banning landmines?” The film, according to Borman, is a call to action to protect endangered species and to call on all of the remaining nations, including the United states, to sign the landmine treaty. “We need to address both problems,” she maintains. In 2010, two new elephants stepped on landmines, so Borman went back to Thailand to film an epilogue, which gave her an opportunity to travel to Vientiane, Laos to interview landmine experts who were attending the first Cluster Munitions Convention. “That really filled out the landmine side of the story and created a stronger call-to-action for the film,” she said. “I didn’t know I would be an ‘elephant person’ until I met Motala and Baby Mosha, the two elephants in The Eyes of Thailand. And even then, it didn’t hit me until I was home from Thailand and began logging all the footage from the trip.” For more information about the film and Windy Borman, visit online.

he New Discoveries Pre-School is hosting a fall harvest carnival, so get your elementary and pre-school aged children and head on over to the NCRD gym in Nehalem on Saturday, Oct. 26 and have some fun. They will be starting at 12 p.m., and going until 4 p.m. The event is geared towards elementary and pre-school aged children – a great way for families to enjoy some Halloween fun together carnival style. Admission is $2 per child - adult supervision is required. Children can purchase tickets $1 each to play Halloween–themed carnival games with prizes, games such as bean bag toss, cookie and pumpkin decorating, fishing, cupcake walk and much more. There will also be face painting and food available (mummy dogs, nachos, popcorn, hot apple cider and veggie dips). Kids can wear



got the sad news Wednesday morning, Oct. 16. Higher-ups in the Coast Guard (I do not know how much higher up) had ordered the boys and girls at Station Tillamook Bay to “cease and desist” working on the Haunted Coast Guard Station here in Garibaldi. The justification, expectably, was the federal shutdown, though – as reported in this paper – (1) the Coast Guard had not been “furloughed,” because of their lifesaving functions, and (2) all the work on the haunted Coast Guard Station was being done by volunteers. They were even buying the material for their costumes and displays with their own money. It is tempting to ascribe the “cease and desist” order to that peculiar segment of the federal government that seemed determined to make the shutdown as annoying as possible – but I won’t. I will note, though, that there





warm welcome home to Fred Bassett and Sonya Kazen, returning from travels as far afield as New York City and Vancouver, British Columbia to their new home on Cloverdale’s Campground Road. No sooner did they unpack their bags, than they opened their guitar cases, tuned up the piano and warmed up their voices to practice for a local concert. This time they’re performing a tribute to Marie Antoinette’s 258th Birthday. Plan to join the celebration, which will include birthday cake, at 7 p.m. on Saturday, November 2 at Bay City Arts Center, 5680 A St., in Bay City. Other acts include Coaster, The Ocean Bottom Country Blues, and Sedona Fire. Admission is by donation. That same morning, Saturday, Nov. 2, Tillamook County Solid Waste Department will hold its regular free collection of Household Hazardous Waste from 9-1 at the Tillamook Transfer Station, 1315 Ekloff Rd.,

their costumes – there will be a costume contest with prizes. And remember all proceeds benefit the New Discoveries Preschool, a parent co-op, non-profit preschool for 3-5 year old children. So grab your little one, in costume or not, have some fun and enjoy the day. Sherry Vick of the 4-H and FCH office support for Tillamook County will be leaving to pursue an opportunity working for the Tillamook County Soil and Water Conservation District. Please join us to wish Sherry a farewell at a drop-in reception on Thursday Oct. 31 from 12:30 to 1:30 at the OSU Extension Office meeting room at 2204 Fourth St., Tillamook. Farewell, Sherry, and may your new adventure bring you much happiness; you will surely be missed, best wishes. The Manzanita Police Department and NBWA (Nehalem Bay Waste Agency) is having their Drug Take Back event on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 10 a.m., to 2 p.m., at the NBWA Treatment Plant located at 14000 Tideland Rd. (follow signs) No questions asked, it’s free, bring them in so they can be safely disposed of. The only thing they cannot take is intra-venous solu-

tions, syringes or medical waste. Don’t forget if you have any Box Tops For Education or Campbell’s Soup Labels. Bring them into the Nehalem Elementary School by Oct. 27 to raise money for the school to purchase gym and playground equipment for the kids. Please try to have them in by the 27th for the next send off. If you don’t make it by then, don’t worry – the rest will be in a later shipment coming up in April, so get them, collect them, and then bring them in to help support the Nehalem Elementary. If you are looking for daycare service for your little one there is a new one in Nehalem. Her name is Marcy Taylor and she is available to watch your kiddo Monday - Friday 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Located at 35950 8th St. she can be reached at 503-368-7676 so give her a call to find out pricing and to see her facilities. One last thing: Daylight savings time ends on Nov. 3 so set your clocks back one hour and make sure to change your smoke detector batteries at the same time. Happy Birthday this week to: Shane Curl of Nehalem and David Norvelle of Nehalem.

are some ripple effects, of the “unintended consequences” variety. Perhaps the biggest beneficiary of the haunted Coast Guard Station was the Garibaldi Food Pantry, which got over 2,000 pounds of food as a result of the affair last year. That’s a big shot in the arm, coming right at the beginning of their busiest part of the year – only as this is written, it’s not going to happen. One of the sideline beneficiaries, it turns out, was the Food Basket; reportedly, a lot of out-of-towners bought cans of food at the Food Basket to donate at the haunted Coast Guard Station. Add in the standard tourist stuff – people buying meals, renting motel rooms or RV spaces – and it’s a pretty Big Thing. Of course, less than 16 hours after that “cease and desist” order happened, the senate and house passed, and the President signed, legislation formally ending the shutdown (and raising the debt ceiling, just hours before the U.S. government was reportedly going to start defaulting on its debts and the stock market was going to crash). So the justification for “ceasing and desisting” doesn’t exist any more, near as I can tell. I did ask the Coast Guard folks whether those higher-

ups would “un-cease and un-desist” once that happened, but they couldn’t tell me. As this is written, I still don’t know. I hope it happens. It means a lot to the community. Friday, Oct. 25, the Garibaldi Food Pantry will be open 10-noon at the God’s Lighthouse church, 8th and Garibaldi Avenue (across from the Food Basket). Sunday, Oct. 27, is the Garibaldi Museum Halloween party, 1-3 p.m. Refreshments, a Costume Fashion Show, and this year, an “I Spy” game – complete with little magnifying glasses to help participants hunt for their “prey.” Open to all ages. For more information contact the Museum at 503-322-8411 or info@ And Saturday, Nov. 2, is Marie Antoinette’s birthday (it would have been her 258th). Music and refreshments (of course there will be cake) at the Bay City Arts Center, starting 7 p.m. Playing will be Fred Bassett and Sonya Kazen, Ocean Bottom Country Blues, Sedona Fire, and Coaster. And it’s all free. 5680 A St. in downtown Bay City. For more information contact the Arts Center at 503-377-9620 or baycityartscenter@gmail. com.

Cast announced for TAPA’s newest play The Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA) is pleased to announce the cast of “Inspecting Carol” written by Daniel Sullivan and directed by Chris Chiola, which opens at The Barn Community Playhouse in Tillamook on Nov. 22. Almost broke, the pathetic Soapbox Theatre Company is having a dickens of a time with their annual winter production of “A Christmas Carol.” The cast is tired of it, as it’s been done with the same actors so long that Tiny Tim has entered puberty. But the cash-cow is needed to impress the inspector from the National Endowment of the Arts into renewing their arts grant. Enter an incompetent actor who gets mistaken for said inspector and everything

goes wrong while hilarity is pile on hilarity. This is not your typical Christmas pageant. Inspecting Carol interjects mild adult humor for those who need a break from the hum drum holiday season. “I hope audiences will laugh themselves silly watching this play and that it gives people a break from the madness of the holiday season. We all need an escape from time to time and I know people will enjoy this take on A Christmas Carol,” said director Chris Chiola, who brought to TAPA the comedies “Sex Please, We’re Sixty” and “Never Kiss a Naughty Nanny.” The cast is comprised of several actors that have been in a number of TAPA productions as well as some that

have only been in one other show. Or, for some this is their first time on stage. Ever. But long in the tooth or fresh to the stage, all will be giving their best for your enjoyment. Inspecting Carol runs Nov. 22 through Dec. 8 with an opening night champagne reception. A free beverage and appetizers with purchase of a ticket for opening night, Nov. 22. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7 p.m. and the Sunday matinees on Dec. 1 and 8 begin at 2 p.m. Doors open one half hour prior to curtain. The Barn Community Playhouse is located at 12th and Ivy in Tillamook. As always, reserved seating is available through Diamond Art Jewelers in Tillamook. Call (503) 842-7940 for tickets.

ast week Dale and I had a rendezvous with my brother (who is battling pancreatic cancer) and his wife in Astoria. We enjoyed happy hour, and then decided to wander the waterfront and savor the magnificent evening. The trolley approached as we strolled, and we deduced that a private party had hired a jazz band to perform as they rode up and down the waterfront. Shortly after they passed, they stopped to let the passengers off. They offered to us the opportunity to ride to the barn; which was several blocks. We climbed aboard and a perfectly magical evening turned into an extraordinary one! The band gifted us with a private concert. The trolley folks will never know just how special this little ride truly was. Another type of magic will arise when the witches cackle and the ghosts are ghastly at the Park and Rec Halloween Party on Sun, Oct. 27th from 6 -7:30 p.m. Kids up to age 12 are welcome, along with their parents, for an evening of games, goodies, and fun! And while the little monsters and superheroes are creeping about on the moonlit nights, be sure to slow up for them. They will be pondering what thrilling or terrifying prank awaits them and may not see you approaching.

What’s your mission? W

hat does your mission statement say? What do you mean you don’t have a mission statement? How do you know what you’re supposed to do if you don’t have a mission statement? I have a mission statement for everything, even marriage. Come to think of it, especially marriage. My mission statement for marriage is, stay married. You’d be amazed at the lack of thinking required to stay married if you follow your mission statement. For instance, when that attractive young woman at the bar asks what that cologne is I’m wearing, and come to think of it that hasn’t happened for some time because young people nowadays are so into themselves, I remember my mission statement and respond, Old Spice for The Aged. Actually, I don’t think she said what’s that cologne. It might have been, what’s that smell. Rosanne Barr, the comedian, had a mission statement for raising kids. She said, if the children are still alive when my husband comes home, I’ve done my job. Rosanne was right, ac-

cording to sociobiologists Dawkins, Pinker and Wilson who said research shows that heredity, DNA, over which you have no control is ninety-eight percent responsible for your son singing like Brad Pitt and looking like Willie Nelson. The two percent your affect has on your offspring in the nature vs. nurture debate is the ability to achieve a high kill rate in Mortal Kombat and the tendency to set fire to schools. Most of you don’t realize you have a shopping mission statement. You foolishly think it’s something like, through the hawk-eyed technique of applying every coupon ever printed in newspapers from Tillamook and adjoining counties, to stretch your shopping dol-

lars, you’ll have money left for essentials like medical care and cable. Wrong. If you delve deeply into your unconscious you’ll find your actual shopping mission statement is to endure rice casseroles until your bimonthly trip to Costco where, in a state of giddiness, your lunch for the day consists of three dozen small paper cups of food substitutes whose chemicals distort your thought processes to the point it seems reasonable to trade in the vehicle you’re driving on a truck big enough to haul the bales of paper products and the dryer that was on sale. At the risk of being perceived as sexist, men have a shelter mission statement. It goes something like this – through the use of my labor, to improve the domicile for my family to better ensure their comfort and safety. Your unconscious mission statement goes more like this – to purchase enough power tools to equal the cost of the project so you can do it yourself, saving enough to have it ripped out and done right by a professional. Be grateful the news-

paper you’re reading this very instant doesn’t have the usual journalistic mission statement, if it bleeds, it leads, but the mission statement we’ve all come to know and love, all kids and cows all the time. Of course we’ve got one mission statement left to consider. It’s the big one. Philosophy and religion, it’s all they talk about. Why are we here? What’s the purpose of my life? What’s the meaning of it all? You’re on your own on this one, Sparky. You could read the great thinkers. You could go to church. A few words of observation. You can delegate strategies. You can delegate actions. You can’t delegate responsibility. If someone tells you to treat others badly, it’s a dead giveaway. Bad mission statement. Treating all races, religions, genders and their preference, conducting your private life the way you want to as long as you’re not violating the Big Mission Statement, it’s a good start. The Big Mission Statement? Oh, come on. You know it. It’s the basis for all the others. Do unto others.

CASA in Lincoln and Tillamook Counties merge CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) in Lincoln and Tillamook Counties announce the establishment of a combined program beginning Oct. 1, 2013. The Board of Directors of Court Appointed Special Advocates is happy to announce that service to children in foster care will continue to be available in Tillamook County. The Board of Directors in Lincoln County approved

the collaboration which took effect on Oct. 1, 2013.

Betsy Henderson, Executive Director of CASA in Lincoln County will oversee both programs. Carol James, long time Program Manager in Lincoln County will

continue in her role of guiding the CASA volunteers in their investigations, report writing and courtroom advocacy, and will assist the Advocates in those roles in Tillamook County as well. Andrea Goss, a Tillamook County Advocate will assist with administrative duties through the end of the year in the CASA office located in the Tillamook Service Center at 2515 3rd Street in Tillamook.

CASA volunteers advocate on behalf of children who are under the care of Child Welfare due to abuse or neglect. Over 100 children were helped in Tillamook County in the past year, while over 200 were assisted in Lincoln County.

is chaired by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency and consists of representatives from American Red Cross; Catholic Charities, USA; National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA; The Jewish Federations of North America; The Salvation Army; and, United Way Worldwide. The Local Board was charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in highneed areas around the country. A Local Board made up of representatives of the national agencies and other appropriate local agencies will determine how the funds awarded to Tillamook County are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service agencies in the area. The Local Board is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds made available under this phase of the program. Under the terms of the grant from the National Board, local agencies chosen to receive funds must: 1) be private voluntary non-profits or units of government, 2) be eligible to receive Federal funds, 3) have an accounting system, 4) practice nondiscrimination, 5) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs, and 6) if they are a private voluntary organization, have a voluntary board. Qualifying agencies are urged to apply. Tillamook County has distributed Emergency Food and Shelter funds previously with CARE, Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center, North County Food Bank, Food Roots, Salvation Army, Tillamook Food Bank, Meals for Seniors and the Tillamook Re-
