Tillamook schools see big changes By Sayde Moser

A new year at the Tillamook School District means some new goals, new challenges – and 33 new hires. The new employees “bring a lot of great opportunities” for the school district, said Supt. Randy Schild. Among the new hires are 11 certified teachers. Schild said the district was able to recruit more staff this year than in the past three years combined. Many of the new hires are replacing retirees or employees who have

moved to other districts. “It was really a buyer’s market,” he said. For some of the elementary school positions, the district saw more than 100 applications. “We’ve found an amazingly vast level of experience,” Schild said. The newcomers will help the district reach some of its long- and short-term goals, including full-day kindergarten, which is new to Tillamook this year. “That’s a huge step for our district,” said Schild. Last year, Tillamook offered two full-day kindergarten classes on a trial basis. “What we found was, the kids who were in the full-day

classes were reading at benchmark by the end of kindergarten,” said Schild. “Those who were taking half-day classes, [only] about half of those kids were [reading at benchmark]. “So we really took that as a sign that we need to be doing full-day classes.” Why is the ability to read early so important? Because, Schild said, students who aren’t reading at benchmark in third grade are three times more likely to drop out of high school. “There is a direct correlation with reading at third grade and

Demographic changes in the last 13 years: • Tillamook schools have lost 16% in total population (365 students – $2.3 million) • Tillamook schools have lost 37% in Caucasian student population (812 students – $5.1 million) • Tillamook schools have gained 321% in minority student population (447 students – $2.7 million) your success as a student,” he said. “So we as a district really have to put our resources into making sure

“It’s like an alphabet soup from the Oregon Department of Education,” says Neah-Kah-Nie School District Supt. Paul Erlebach. He’s talking about the multitude of state-mandated changes this year, including Common Core State Standards, Smarter Balance Assessment tests, proficiency-based grading, new state report cards and more. “It’s all really great stuff,” Erlebach clarified, “it’s just all coming at us all at once.” The new state standards require students to learn more at an earlier age. On top of that, the new assessment tests are eliminating multiplechoice answers and requiring students to explain the reasoning for their answers. The new report cards are more comprehensive and “parent-friendly,” he said. Yet because of the report cards’ cost, many districts aren’t sending to students’ parents – although “we will be,” said Erlebach. The Neah-Kah-Nie district also stands out from other Oregon schools in its ability to offer pre-school. “A lot of school districts are just moving towards funding full-day kindergarten,” said Erlebach. Neah-Kah-Nie has been offering full-day kindergarten for years. Last year, for the first time the district had a licensed teacher running the program. This year, school officials have extended the program to two sessions and are hoping to reach 40 youngsters. Erlebach said there were 19 students in preschool last year, seven more than the year before. “In two years, we’ve almost doubled the number of kids we’re reaching,” he said. “That’s an investment that will pay off big-time when these kids are further along in school.” ­­­­ See NEAH-KAH-NIE, Page A7

For the first time in three years, Nestucca Valley School District will have a five-day school week. “We had made a decision [to shorten the school week] years ago based on financial reasons,” said district Supt. Kathryn Hedrick. “We’re in better financial shape now, so we can afford to return to five days.” And just in time, too. “The fourday week really harmed our students’ progress,” Hedrick said. Test scores have dropped across the board, particularly at the elementary level, she said. “We felt strongly enough about the correlation of test scores and four-day weeks to make the switch. It’s what’s best for our students.” To accommodate the additional day, start times have changed as well. The elementary building is up and going at 8:15 a.m., and lets out at 2:52 p.m. High school starts at 8 a.m. and runs until 3:07 p.m. The five-day week has shortened class time by about 45 minutes each day. As for parents’ acceptance of the longer week, no problem, says Hedrick. “About two years ago, we had a visioning process where the community clearly told us they wanted to switch back to five days a week. We weren’t able to implement that change last year, but we’re excited to make it happen this year.” As for the students, “Of course they liked the four days,” Hedrick said. “But the truth is, kids like school. They just have to pretend like they don’t.” The extra day is part of Nestucca’s strategic plan to improve the district’s educational performance. “Parents will be seeing our report card in about a week,” Hedrick said. “What they’ll see is, we’ve made ­­­­ See NESTUCCA, Page A3

Answer to ‘over-clamming’ expected soon By Joe Wrabek

In mid-August, the Tillamook County commissioners sent a letter to state Department of Fish & Wildlife Director Roy Elicker questioning whether clams are being overharvested in Netarts Bay. ODFW’s shellfish program leader, Steve Rumrill, said the agency will have an answer for the commissioners next week. Rumrill’s responsibility is statewide. Clamming occurs in the Alsea, Yaquina, and Coos bays, he said, as well as Ne-

tarts and Tillamook bays. Permits are required for harvesting clams, he said. Commercial harvesters must have a fishing license as well. They are required to send information in when they harvest, and also report to the agency when they sell the clams, which provides a check on the numbers actually taken. ODFW doesn’t monitor the actual clamming. “It’s the responsibility of the Oregon State Police to take a look and make sure the [clammers] are taking ­­­­ See CLAMMING, Page A3

Members of the recently disbanded Cloverdale VFW installed this monument at Hebo’s Nestucca Valley Community Cemetery to honor local veterans. Four other similar monuments will be placed in Blaine, Beaver, Union and Oretown.

Coverdale VFW donates monuments to local cemeteries By Joe Wrabek

Several members of Cloverdale’s now-disbanded VFW Post 9611 recently gathered at Hebo’s Nestucca Valley Community Cemetery to place a monument honoring local veterans. Five such monuments are being placed – in Blaine, Beaver, Hebo, Union and Oretown. Following a brief prayer and the playing of “Taps” by pastor Tim Mayne, a crew 675 from = 1 col 3.35Monuments = 2 col Oregon

of Hillsboro installed the monument, attended by Mike Waud and Scott Cummings of Waud’s Funeral Home. “They [the VFW] came to us with this project,” Waud said. “We did it for cost.” Like many veterans’ organizations, the Cloverdale VFW post was faced with a declining and aging membership. “Most of our guys have either moved or perished,” said veteran Al Schatz. The VFW had considered merging with Tillamook County’s other VFW post, in Bay City, but “it was easier

to close,” Schatz said. Disbanding the organization left money in the treasury, which now is being distributed. In addition to the monuments, “We gave $10,000 to the fire station in

Hebo, and $4,000 to the Nestucca Lions eye program,” Schatz said. “The money originally came from the community,” he said. “It should go back to the community.”

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 for 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 piled on hilarity. Auditions will be held at the Barn Community Playhouse at 12th and Ivy in Tillamook on Saturday, Sept. 7 at 2 p.m. For more information or to obtain an audition packet contact Director Chris Chiola at (503) 842-6305 or The following roles are needed: • Zorah Block- The founding director of The Soapbox Playhouse and extremely selfconcerned. • Sidney Carlton- A founding member of the Company.

Commissioners support forestlands bill By Joe Wrabek

Tillamook County’s three commissioners recently voted to send a letter to Rep. Doc Hastings (R-WA) and Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR), the chairman and the ranking Democrat, respectively, on the U.S. House Natural Resources Committee, in support of HR 1526, a bill before Congress to permanently remedy the timber-harvest issue involving the Oregon and California Railroad (O&C) lands. Hastings is the sponsor of HR 1526, which has 20 cosponsors, all Republicans. The O&C lands, repossessed decades ago by the federal government after a sweeping real-estate scandal, were supposed to be managed for timber production. But timber harvests have declined by 97 percent. The commissioners’ letter cited litigation, environmental analyses and a lack of funding for timber sales as the main impediments to a sustainable harvest. (This year, the U.S. Forest Service is spending timber-sale preparation money to help fight forest fires.) Hastings’ bill would put about half of the 2.8 million acres of O&C lands back into production in a “revenue trust” managed by the Oregon Department of Forestry, not the federal government. “The other half will be wilderness,” Tillamook County Commissioner Tim Josi said. “Ten years ago, if we’d been offered this deal, we’d have said no,” Josi said. Today, “it’s as good as we’re going to get.” HR 1526 also extends temporarily the “secure rural schools and communities” program, under which counties and school districts have received partial compensation for federal in-lieu-of-taxes payments, which stopped when federal timber sales stopped. The “secure rural schools and communities” program ended this year. On July 31, HR 1526 was reported out of the House Natural Resources Committee, which Hastings chairs. It faces a vote by the full U.S. House of Representatives sometime after Congress reconvenes Sept. 9. But even if the bill passes the House (77 percent of all bills don’t), the legislation still faces an unfriendly reception in the Senate, where Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden chairs the Energy and Natural Resources Committee. “He has different ideas,” Josi told his colleagues. Wyden doesn’t want any changes in environmental laws, Josi said, “and he’s opposed to the trust idea. I don’t know what will happen.” Also during their meeting

August 28, the county commissioners designated the second week of September as “Suicide Prevention Week,” following a presentation by Tillamook High School sophomores Charity Bloomer and Rosa Dejesus.

Suicide is “kind of a hidden thing that goes on out there,” Commission Chair Mark Labhart noted. For every person who commits suicide – 49 did so in Tillamook County between 2003 and 2010 – 20 try and fail.

moderate improvements from last year and we’re still working to address that.” One challenge for the district is the number of children living below the poverty level, as well as those requiring special education. Sixty-nine percent of the student body is on free or reduced-cost lunch programs, Hedrick said. “This isn’t a new problem,” she added. “What this means is, we have to put money and resources into areas that maybe other districts wouldn’t have to.” Meantime, Nestucca is looking closely at early childhood learning. There has long been been fullday kindergarten, “But like the rest of the state,” said

what they say they are,” Rumrill said. He would not speculate as to why a large number of commercial clam harvesters from Washington had been in the Netarts and Tillamook bays, except to say there had been “a high abundance of cockles this year.” Determining the “carrying capacity” of the bays is “very difficult to figure out,” Rumrill said. “We would have to stop all harvesting to do that.” Instead, he said, the agency is attempting to determine whether “the fishery is being managed in a sustainable way.”

Hedrick, “we’re increasingly paying more attention to it.” Although preschool is not an option, Hedrick said the district works closely with Cedar Creek Preschool and Head Start. This year’s kindergarten numbers are holding about the same, with two classes of 20 students. Between a smaller junior class and a large sophomore class, she said, total enrollment is about 525 – not shrinking, although not growing either. “I just think we’re poised at a crossroads,” Hedrick said. “We’ve taken a couple of years to assess where we are and should be really making some moves in exciting directions.”

Guest Column



Why was it necessary to lift the burn barrel ban prior to Labor Day weekend, instead of keeping it in place through the entire month of August? Whose interest took priority when that decision was made? Was it on behalf of all those folks who choose to burn their trash in their yard instead of paying a fee to have it removed? Was that fair to the rest of us who do pay every month because we respect the rights of our neighbors to have clean air to breathe, rather than being reduced to inhaling burning plastic fumes? Is that too much to ask for one month out of 12 when we can count on keeping our windows open? Shouldn’t the county’s “land of ocean breeze” tourism PR hold a little weight during one of the busiest holiday weekends? Or was the concern that those same folks who can’t seem to live without their burn barrels would then feel a need to drive up in the woods – using the same amount of money to fuel that trip that it would have taken to pay for garbage removal – and dump their trash there? A just concern because we’ve all seen what that looks like when we venture out to enjoy time in Oregon’s beautiful

forest – plus the hazards to wildlife when they consume plastic garbage. And let’s not forget that wildfires are burning out of control all over the west and there’s nothing to say that dry conditions won’t return later requiring a return of the ban when people least expect it and will be paying less attention to it. Here’s a thought: if the goal is to champion those who say they can’t afford garbage removal, consider sitting down with the agencies who provide those services and find a way to make it more affordable. It’s a fact of like that it can never be free to dispose of all our waste in a crowded world – and if you were to factor in all the externalities involved when it’s done incorrectly, it will prove to be anything but free for ALL of us – but maybe it could be less expensive if municipalities in this county would add that cost to their water and sewer bills like so many cities do already. Thereby absorbing some of the administrative costs (maybe for a slight fee to the agencies) and offering a larger clientele to the removal agencies so that they could reduce their fees to us all. Plus we could win back our clean air, the woods would be safer and cleaner, and Tillamook County’s PR wouldn’t look like BS!

Readers’ Open Forum A better crop management solution After reading about the impact that the Florida citrus approach to crop management has had on their local honey bee population and then seeing the list of remedial action applications of various industry suggested products, I can see the difficult situation that farmers everywhere are dealing with. My concern is that those companies offering trouble shooting technologies are considerably vested, that they are not seeking solutions that could benefit all members of the community and that they would disregard the profoundly negative impact some of their products are having on local honey producers. But even more important is that these practices are setting a horrible precedence for the agricultural protection of bee colonies and safe ecosystems everywhere. This type of crop management is doing far more damage than good and if we are to stay at the top of our game, we really must actively seek, research and employ solutions that contribute to the health of the ecosystem we are working with. Killing millions of bees is simply not an option and if our farms are slapped with a nominal and inadequate fine this time as was the case in Florida, do not assume that after we are aware of the results of our actions and we continue to use the same practices, there will not be considerably stiffer penalties. We have to find other solutions to crop management so there is no better time than immediately to

seek the information that is needed to operate our businesses safely into the future. I do not believe that confining product research to what the chemical industry suggests will result in any long-term solutions. Any suggestions that source from a vested interest could be negatively influenced by corporate bottom line decision making and these solutions are best employed as far as they represent the sound research done by those truly seeking safe farming technologies that will see us into a healthy future for human and environment. Thank you for taking the time to consider my letter. Robyn Norwood Tillamook

Anyone interested in volunteering? Are you looking for an opportunity to volunteer? I was approached recently by a constituent who asked how he could volunteer for the county as his wife was tired of him sitting around the house. I told him there are a number of volunteer boards and commissions that the county has openings on and we are looking for people willing to step up to help serve others. Currently there are two openings you might be interested in. One is for the Board of Property tax Appeals. This three-member board hears taxpayer appeals for reduction of their real market or assessed value of property. We also have openings on the Tillamook County Mental Health, Chemical Dependency and

Developmental Disability Council. The council advises the board of commissioners and the mental health program director on community needs and priorities for services in this area. We have a number of other boards and commissions that need replacements every so often. So, if you want to get out of the house and are interested in applying for the boards or councils above or may be interested in any other boards/ councils positions, it easy to apply. Just call Sue Becraft in the Commissioner’s Office at 503-842-3403 and she can tell you what openings are available and what other boards and commissions we have that you might be interested in volunteering for. Thanks for considering this opportunity to serve. Mark Labhart Chair Tillamook Co. Board of Commissioners

The underlying issue about kill permits I live on Spring Valley Farm, an organic dairy south of Tillamook. It is a modest size four-generation family dairy that has received numerous awards and recognition for milk quality from the Tillamook Creamery and Organic Valley. In fact one of my granddaughters is featured on the carton of the Organic Valley 1 percent milk distributed in some regions. I want to respond to the article “Kill Permits” in the Aug. 28 Headlight Herald edition. This farm has a serious elk herd problem! It is estimated the elk conservatively cost SVF $35,000

in feed loss this past year. Elk fencing, which has not consistently worked in other areas of our county, would cost $50,000 to install. The fact is that when elk graze, the farmer must purchase expensive feed to make up the difference. SVF receives kill permits each year for which we are grateful but in reality, because of regulated and safety practices, very few elk are actually harvested. My opinion is that one of the underlying problems with this whole issue is the current Wildlife Big Game regulations. Does anyone really believe that elk populations will be controlled for the benefit of our farmers by offering only 11 days of firearm general elk hunting in the Wilson and Trask Units? Oh, and by the way, seven out of those 11 days are “spike only” after most of the spikes taken are during the previous four day bull season? How naive does the government think we are? One more fact. In the Trask and Wilson Units controlled extended cow elk hunt tags were applied for by more than 1,500 hunters. Only 125 were granted. Does anyone else suspect the destructive growth of our elk herds could be due to the decrease in legal hunting opportunities afforded by ODFW. By the way, our local ODFW personnel have been extremely helpful and supportive of SVF within the guidelines they are operating under. But unfortunately they don’t make the regulations.

Back to school, with hope for the future Ah, September, and the start of school. It is a month filled with new school supplies, eager kids at the bus stop, and the optimism and excitement of a new year, a new beginning. A few weeks ago, I was with a young man as he enrolled in a university. He’d completed his associates degree at a community college, and was now ready to start his junior year, to work on his bachelor’s degree, and to prepare to achieve his dream of a Master’s degree in Business Administration. “I want to be successful,” he said. “But, I don’t know if I can afford it.” The friendly people at the university soon helped him with his schedule, and registering for classes. The next stop was Financial Aid. “You’ve received some nice scholarships,” the advisor said. “Those funds will reduce your tuition significantly. It looks like you’ll be able to attend; you’ve made your budget.” My friend broke out into a huge grin; his dreams now come to life.

Without those scholarships, without the generosity of those who’ve made the commitment to fund scholarships for generations of smart, energetic people like my young friend, many of those dreams could not be realized. When we fund scholarships, when we invest in the education of our children, or my young friend, and countless other people striving to better themselves, we invest in ourselves, and our community. We invest in our future as a country. The people who funded those scholarships my friend received have no regrets about their generosity. The benefits and the dividends of that generosity are found in his grin, and the sparkle in his eyes as he moves ahead in his education, and all that he will contribute to this world in his life. “Your regrets aren’t what you did, but what you didn’t do. So I take every opportunity.” Cameron Diaz We all have the opportunity to

make a difference in this world, to change a life, to help someone move forward. I took that opportunity in driving that young man to a university, helping him walk through the steps in getting him registered, getting him ready to start the new school year with enthusiasm and hope. I take that opportunity in putting some dollars in the TBCC Foundation scholarship funds. Sure, I get some benefits from that on my tax return, but I also give more people some hope and direction for their future. I’’m part of helping people like my young college friend see the possibility of their dreams. In September, all of us do something to get the school year started on the right foot. And when we do that, we change lives, and we make dreams come to life.

A special thanks to Bay City Fire Dept.

Proposed oyster plat should be denied

A special thanks to Bay City Fire for their quick response to our call for help. Last night our son had an allergic reaction and 911 was called. A code 1 response was requested because of our sons Autism Spectrum (loud sounds, flashing lights and lots of people heighten his anxiety) and Bay City Fire was very respectful and came in quietly thanks in large part to the dispatcher at 911 who recognized the need and communicated it to responders. This was greatly appreciated and our son, although he was very anxious, did well with this event. His symptoms resolved thanks to mom’s early treatment with Benadryl and of course her calming influence. This is a good reminder for the dispatchers, law enforcement and first responders who respond to households with special children. Quiet is key to the successful treatment and transport of these children. We (Auggie’s Hope) are working on putting together a course for first responders and the treatment of children with special needs and this call both enforces the need for further training in regards to kids with Autism and a myriad of other issues and shows us that our first responders ROCK and were quick to adjust to the situation. How lucky we are to live in a county that has dedicated paid and volunteer responders who are well trained and quick to react to the current situations where they can not only ramp up for a critical call but slow down when the need presents. Again my wife and I would like to thank Tillamook 911 and Bay City Fire, ladies and gentlemen we salute you! Nicholas Watts Bay City

I am a native Oregonian, born and raised in Tillamook County. Recently, I read an article about the proposed 32-acre plat to be leased for oyster production by Shuckin Oysters LLc. This is a very important area for Tillamook and Oregon. It not only is the home of a sensitive bed of sand dollars (which, by the way, I visited early in my school days as a science class project), but also is home to the different variety of clams that my family and friends enjoy digging. It is also filled with eel grass that is a nutritional source for fish. There is so many precious and diverse species in this one particular area of the Netarts Bay, that it should be protected by an Oregon Natural Area Designation, much like the Blacklock area in Southern Oregon coastal Curry County. Please consider this lease as one that should be denied . Ms. Karina Mayner of Shuckin’ Food Oyster Co., LLC, could find another bay area for her money making project that is not so precious to all of us. Let us be good stewards of this “Land of Trees, Cheese and Ocean Breeze.” Deborah Crawford Tillamook

I just wanted to commend Joe Wrabek on his wonderful article concerning the governments appropriations of Oregon forestlands, and “having no lunch money.” It was charming, refreshing, and I’d raise my hand for the assessors bill being sent to good ol’ Uncle Sam, for all the land we can’t use. Joe makes a great point when he posses the people of this state not the crumb beggers we are made out to

Looking for someone to take over military Christmas packages Christmas military packages are coming up. This mission has been successful because of the participation of the patrons of Tillamook County. We have headed Friends and Family for 20 years. My son is retired from the military and it is now Rosalie and my turn to retire from active duty. This year we need to have persons from north, south and central county to step up and take over the headship of Friends and Family. We will mentor. This is a year round job. It will help to know military protocol, and be a very sensitive person in working with military parents, and those who donate package contents, financial support and time to send positive personal support to our military personnel of Tillamook County.

Wheeler city manager moving on By Joe Wrabek

Wheeler City Manager Jeff Aprati said he is resigning. “There’s nothing wrong,” added Aprati. He and his wife are expecting their first child and want to move back to Portland to be closer to relatives. “I’ll probably be here through the end of September,” he said. Aprati has been Wheeler’s city manager since May 2012. It was his first city manager job. “Wheeler is a great small town and a great place to work,” Aprati said. “It’s definitely a town with great volunteers. A lot of what we do here couldn’t happen without the volunteer help.” Jennie Messmer of the League of Oregon Cities has been tapped to serve as interim city manager while the city looks for his replacement, Aprati said. The job has been advertised on the league’s website since August 13. Interviews are expected to be held in October. The new city manager

Arden TED Tidwell Vietnam Veteran, Arden TED Tidwell passed away on Aug. 7 from continuing complications stemming from exposure to Agent Orange. He was born Nov. 21, 1947. Ted Tidwell After the war, Ted was successful managing and owning office and commercial building maintenance firms in the Portland area. In his leisure, he was an avid and expert fisherman in streams throughout the Northwest. His professional career and outdoor activities were eventually impacted by kidney failure and related ailments. Due to a rare blood type Ted was on the transplant waiting list and weekly dialysis for more than five years until an angel from an auto accident stopped the deterioration with a lifesaving kidney. Thanks to the VA Hospital and the OHSU the kidney stayed healthy, but other related chemical damage resulted in severe diabetes, loss of a leg, and nerve and muscle damage that kept him in a wheelchair for his final years. As fishing became more difficult, he turned to building show winning hotrods, and helping to organize events and car shows in his home town of Garibaldi and other coastal communities. Ted’s passing was preceded by his father Howard Tidwell (Sept. 3, 1981) and mother Esther Tidwell (Jan. 30, 2001). Ted leaves behind his loving wife and caregiver Vicky Tidwell; sister and hotrod pal Anne Masse;, loving uncle and aunts, Bill Tidwell, Etta Pearl (Tidwell) Jackson, and Betty (Tidwell) Chaney, all of Texas; as well as many extended family

and friends. A date for a memorial service will be set, and friends and loved ones will be contacted. In lieu of flowers, please send remembrances to Wounded Warriors ( Thanks and prayers to the workers and staff of the VA Hospital and OHSU, all veterans, and the wonderful people who enroll in the organ donor program (

He was an outstanding athlete and had many awards that labeled him the fastest runner in Washington. Jay had a love for animals. When he was five years old he climbed under the bridges to get young pigeons. As the birds got older he trained them to fly back to his loft. For more than 80 years he flew them in races and became very well known for his exceptional homing birds. Jay served proudly in the

Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center hosts first annual ‘poker run’ Sept. 7 By Sayde Moser

The Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center will host its first-annual “Purple Ribbon Rally & Poker Run” from noon to 9 p.m. Sept. 7 at the Blue Heron French Cheese Co. in Tillamook. The free event is open to participants of all ages. “We’ve been hosting our ‘Soup Bowl’ as an annual fundraiser for years now,” said Leeauna Perry of the women’s center. She said that event has become an iconic community endeavor, and now the organization wants to add to it something new and different. “We thought it would be neat to appeal to a totally different audience, while still maintaining our [‘Soup Bowl’] audience,” she said. Poker run riders can register at the Blue Heron on Sept. 7 before 11 a.m. Everyone will be riding by 11 a.m. sharp. “They kind of ride like a pack,” said Perry. “They’ll have little purple streamers and bandanas, so it will look like this nice, long purple trail of people supporting the Women’s Resource Center.” She said there will be prizes for the highest fivecard hand and the lowest. The route, which heads up to Nehalem and then down Miami Foley River Road, is family-friendly, Perry said, so even newer riders can join in. The poker run is expected to take about four hours, depending on how many riders participate. At the Blue Heron during the day, visitors can enjoy games, craft projects for the kids, live entertainment including a dance presentation by local youth dancers of the Oregon Coast Dance Center, a raf-

fle with a variety of prizes, and community karaoke. Participants can dine on food from area restaurants that includes Italian, Hawaiian, BBQ and vegetarian options, as they listen to a live performance by local musicians “Buffalo Kitty.” “We want to make it a fun day for the whole community,” Perry said. “Summer is over, kids are back in school. This can be one last, big shebang before the winter months hit.” All proceeds from the sale of raffle tickets and merchandise during the event will support the services provided by the Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center. For more information, call Perry at 503-812-1554. Schedule: Poker run registration:10 a.m. Kick off: 11 a.m. Event opens: 12 p.m. Kids’ activities: 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Oregon Coast School of Dance performance: 1 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. Community karaoke: 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Live music: 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

From TILLAMOOK A1 changes so much about how we have to approach teaching,” Schild said. “Without [the Hispanic students], our numbers would be almost 500 less students. We’d be just a shadow of what we are today. “So they are critically important to us and our success. We want to see them go on to be successful in life.” A priority this year is to bridge the achievement gap between Caucasian and minority students. “We’re really trying to target that learning gap, because our Hispanic population continues to grow,” he said. The Tillamook School District has the largest Hispanic population on the Oregon coast, added Schild, so, “We really need to be aware and start dealing with this and implement some things this year to address it.” That includes making third-grade reading levels a priority. “If that gap doesn’t exist by third grade, then these kids are in a really good position to be successful for the rest of their lives,” he said. Too, Oregon’s new state-mandated Common Core State Standards provide a new sense of urgency for student achievement. The new state standards require students to know more, and to know it sooner. “Our staff is shocked at what these kids are expected to know,” said Schild. Now, all of the students will be required to pass tests in every subject to graduate, instead of simply acquiring a specific number of credits. “It’s a big concern for us,” said Schild, “because some students, for example, just don’t understand math. Math is one of those polarizing subjects where students either get it or they don’t, and to say all students will have to get to a certain understanding of math in order to graduate is a concern.” Not to mention, students must be proficient at using a computer keyboard. This year, the Tillamook district will offer keyboarding classes in the third, fourth and fifth grades. “This is all happening whether we’re ready or not,” Schild said. “It’s exciting times to be an educator.”

Erlebach said the district has been actively recruiting students to fill the preschool spots. “We want to reach all the kids,” he said, “not just the principals’ kids or teachers’ kids, or those who have access to the district. We want those families that don’t have access, as well. “We have all the infrastructure and we have a fantastic teacher. So we want to maximize the impact as best we can.” Along with pre-school, Neah-Kah-Nie is in its second implementation year of the national Response to Intervention (RTI) program. Its premise is to use screening tools to assess a student’s ability in a certain subject. If the student is below benchmarks, there are a variety of intervention strategies a teacher can use to help accelerate the student’s learning.

HOLDEN: U.S. navy during World War II as a radioman. As the need arose they sent him to Tillamook to build a loft and then raise and train the pigeons. The birds were used to fly from the blimps back to the loft. This was done during the black outs. Messages were put on their legs reporting that Japanese ships or submarines were spotted in the Pacific Ocean. Jay married Alice Bester and stayed in Tillamook after the war. He was part owner of Besters Wrecking yard with his in-laws, Leland and Elizabeth Bester. Among many other things, he was the welder that kept many loggers happy. He was a coach for the Elks. He worked with many young boys in basketball. He had to keep the big safety pins handy in order to keep their uniform shorts up! During those years he helped the young men in town with their cars and enjoyed watching them

under their belts. “What they do with those credits is obviously up to them. We just want to give them a taste of what college is like.” At the elementary school level, the district has hired a new teacher at Garibaldi Grade School in anticipation of more students. The grade school is estimated to see 207 students this year. Nehalem Elementary School will be at 185. As for the money, NeahKah-Nie is one of a small minority of school districts funded through both property taxes (75 percent) and timber revenue (25 percent). Without any monies from the state, Erlebach said, “We have to be good stewards of how we spend the money we do have. It’s just not as stable as state funding. “This year, we looked at our priorities and decided to invest in pre-school. And we were in a good position to do that.”

grow up. He was the coach everyone wanted their son to have. He was an avid river fisherman and always knew where the fish were. Jay and Alice enjoyed square dancing and valued their many special friends. They danced with the Wagoneer Dance Club that was held at the Fairview Grange Hall. Jay and Alice were blessed with three daughters. Joanne (Bob Spencer) and eight children, Robbie, Kris, Steve, Kari, Katie, Becky, Jenny, Julie and 19 grandchildren; Kathy (Mike Landolt) and two children, Lori and Tim and one grandson; Jeanie (Bob Prichard and four sons, Tracy, Travis, Ty and Todd and two granddaughters. Jay and Alice have been living at Farmington Square in Salem for the past few years. At Jay’s request, there will not be a formal funeral. He would want to thank you for your friendship and much kindness shown to his family.

All children who live in the school district boundaries and will be four years of age by September 1, 2013 are eligible. There are limited spots available for students with birthdates between September 1 and November 1, 2009. The preschool will hold two session each day, Monday – Friday. The morning session will run from 8:15 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. and the af-

ternoon session will run from 11:15 a.m. – 2:15 p.m. Transportation will be provided to and from preschool to students living in the Nehalem attendance zone in the a.m. and to students living in the Garibaldi attendance zone in the p.m. For further information on the program, fees or registration, contact Ashley Arthur at 503355-3503 or ashleya@

“You don’t just dump a kid in special ed right away,” Erlebach said. “You use multiple intervention strategies first to try and address the problem.” Erlebach became familiar with RTI as an educator in Ontario, Ore., and introduced it to Neah-Kah-Nie last year. “It’s a continual work in progress,” he said. “We’re at the emerging stages; we’re not an established RTI district yet.” Nor are the other districts on the coast, he added. Also this year, NeahKah-Nie students will have access to four technologyrich classrooms, known informally as TBCC North. In 2007, when Tillamook Bay Community College was trying to pass a bond measure to build its main campus in the city of Tillamook, college officials promised voters they would build extended-learning

centers in north and south county, at a cost of about $450,000 each. The Nestucca Valley School District in south Tillamook County elected to build a new building. In north county, said Erlebach, there wasn’t the pressure for additional space, so the Neah-Kah-Nie School District opted to spend its money on revamping four existing classrooms. Those classrooms will focus on math, science and English language arts, with a student-to-computer ratio of 1:1. Along with the new classrooms, the district has hired a well-qualified advanced-math teacher, said Erlebach. “Our goal is for some of our highly qualified teachers to be able to teach our students TBCC [college] courses,” he said. “That way, when our students graduate, they can be leaving with college credits

benchmark. “Otherwise, we’re playing catch-up with them the rest of the time they’re with us.” Also, Schild said, statistics show that people with a high school education live on average 9.2 years longer than those who drop out. “When you connect those two pieces, thirdgrade reading is really a matter of life and death.” He said the district’s kindergarten numbers are strong this year and that parents have welcomed the idea of full-day classes. “Most parents have seen the statistics and know that full-day classes are what their kids need,” he said. Schild said preschool is another tool for reaching the third-grade achievement benchmarks. “More than 30 percent of students never step foot in a school until kindergarten,” he said. “We’re really pushing for all kids to enroll in some kind of preschool, so by the time they’re in kindergarten they’ve already got their feet wet.” Other adjustments for the Tillamook district this year include some new starting times. Last year, the district tried having two separate start times – elementary students began an hour earlier than the high school students. “The research was supposedly showing that younger kids had better learning early in the morning and older kids did better with a later start,” he said. “But we just didn’t see those types of results.” In addition, the differing start times conflicted with some parents’ schedules, he said, another reason for this year’s start time of 8:15 a.m. On the other hand, Tillamook will retain two bus runs at the end of the day, to encourage students to participate in after-school programs. The after-school offerings are designed primarily for the district’s Hispanic population, Schild said, which has been steadily increasing. After-school time is important because it can be difficult to teach Caucasian and Hispanic students in a like number of classroom hours. He said that in another 10 years, it’s likely there will be as many “minority” students in the Tillamook district as Caucasians. “It

Tillamook teens turn love for goats into viable business By Denise Porter

For the Headlight Herald

Five years ago, Scott Rocha was milking his mixed, registered herd of dairy goats using a wooden milking stand and a portable milking unit. There were only a dozen does; it didn’t take long to finish his chores. Today, more than 70 registered Toggenburg, Nubian, Saanen, Lamancha and Alpine does line side by side in their own milking parlor. Scott, 17, and his brother, Brent, 15, are the owners and breeders at Tide Land Dairy, the only grade A dairy goat farm in Tillamook County. The brothers’ parents own a dairy cattle farm. That milk is shipped to the Tillamook County Creamery Association to be made into cheddar cheese. The milk from the Tide Land Dairy does is shipped to Dundee, Ore. There, at Briar Rose Creamery, it’s made into national awardwinning chevre cheeses. The Rocha brothers have had a small herd of milking does since Scott was 8 and Brent was 6. Their father, Joe, had a dairy goat project when he was a youth in California. His parents milked Jersey cows. Their farm was next door to a dairy goat farm, where Joe recalls playing with the neighbor children and being enthralled with the goats. “I kind of liked all the same things about the goats that I love about the cows,” he remembers. “They really are just miniature dairy animals – with even more personality.” Joe and his wife, Sarah, and the rest of Joe’s immedi-

ate family moved to Tillamook in 1992 to buy a dairy cattle farm. They soon added four sons to the family. Joe says his boys were always interested in dairy goats. “Before we got any, we’d be showing the cows at the state fair and the boys would be down by the dairy goats. They gravitated toward it and I clearly helped push that interest along.” As the herd grew, and the boys got older, the family used the milk from the goats to feed bull calves and pigs they later sold to customers. All four sons loved the goats, but it was Scott – and, to a lesser extent, Brent, who has horses, too – who really liked the goat herd more than the cattle. Scott says he loves cheese and longed to have his own Oregon-certified and inspected grade A dairy facility so he might sell milk to a cheesemaker. The Oregon Department of Agriculture has strict guidelines for cleanliness, milk quality and facility standards, said Scott. He would need a cooling tank for the milk, stainless steel pipes, milking machines and a way to sanitize the facility, a structure that would cost thousands of dollars. Several years ago, the Rocha family purchased another dairy cow farm that had an older, yet functioning, milking parlor. The family decided not to use the milking facilities, but rather, to use the property’s pasture and barns for storage. Scott says he dreamed of converting the milking parlor to a goat milking facility. But he needed a buyer for his milk. Then, last year, family

Reversing diabetes by Mary Faith Bell For the Headlight Herald

In six months, Tillamook County Commissioner Tim Josi reversed his diabetes diagnoses, brought his blood pressure, cholesterol, lipids and triglyceride counts within normal ranges, and lost 30 pounds. Not surprisingly, he did it by changing his diet and increasing his exercise. Josi said he credits Tillamook Regional Medical Center’s Complete Health Improvement Project (CHIP) for the dramatic improvement in his health. Said Josi: “Dr. Hans Diehl came to the hospital to talk to people

about CHIP. He developed the program. I didn’t really know what his talk was going to be about; I just went to support the hospital. I didn’t go there planning to sign up for anything. “But he was talking about reversing diabetes and heart disease, and that got my attention. I had three brothers with diabetes, both of my parents were diabetic, aunts, uncles, grandparents… “I was also afraid that I was a heart attack waiting to happen. My dad died of a heart attack.” Diehl told Josi that all of those problems could be addressed with changes in diet

and lifestyle. Josi signed up for the program. CHIP’s four-week plan includes two health screenings, 12 lectures, a cookbook, cooking demonstrations, meals each evening and support group meetings. “Before the class started, I had my annual physical with Dr. [Paul] Betlinski and sure enough, I was diagnosed with diabetes… But Dr. Betlinski said that he would wait to prescribe diabetes medication for me because I told him I had signed up for the CHIP program,” said Josi. “The CHIP program does a really thorough job of explaining what you should

eat and why. Basically, you cut out animal products, prepared foods, and fats and oils. The idea is that the pancreas produces insulin, which is the key that opens the lock that allows glucose into the cells. Eating fatty products gums up the lock.” Josi increased his exercise schedule to about four hours a week. Six months after he began CHIP, Josi had a check-up with Betlinski, who told him he no longer is diabetic. He had managed to improve a number of vital health signs. “I recommend this program for anybody,” said Josi.

Garibaldi taking measures to attract businesses By Joe Wrabek

The City of Garibaldi is reducing systems development charges in an effort to attract new business. The change couldn’t come fast enough for Blair Smith, owner and developer of a boat and vehicle wash proposed to be built at the Port of Garibaldi. Systems development fees are designed to force new homes or businesses that put an additional “load” on water, sewer and other utility systems to help finance future utility improvements necessary to handle the growth. Garibaldi charges development fees for water, sewer, transportation, storm drainage and parks systems. It’s the transportation fees that hit businesses particularly hard. Street improvements are expensive, and businesses generate traffic – additional “load” on the transportation system. The transportation charge for Smith’s new boat and vehicle wash was going to be $214,000. “We couldn’t build under those conditions,” Smith recently told the Garibaldi City Council. As Smith and his contractor, Joseph “Toby” Taylor of JLT Construction, were making their complaints to the City Council

on August 18, Garibaldi City Manager John O’Leary was presenting the council with a plan to reduce the city’s system development charges. That plan, originally ordered by the City Council, had been in the works for some time, O’Leary said. Devised by Public Works director Blake Lettenmaier and consulting engineer Curt McLeod, it proposed to change the way transportation development fees were calculated by assuming that traffic to a new business was going to benefit other businesses as well, and therefore the new business shouldn’t be assessed 100 percent of the cost. That would reduce the transportation charges by 75 percent for most businesses – including Smith’s. The problem, O’Leary told the council, is that the change couldn’t be implemented immediately. Public notice requirements under state law – repeated in the city’s system development charge ordinance – mean the new, lower rates couldn’t take effect for about six months. Yet Smith and Taylor want to construct the boat and auto wash right away, to take advantage of what’s left of this year’s construction season. At the City Council

meeting, O’Leary offered a possible solution. A provision in the city’s system development code allows for payment of the fees over time, he said. Smith could pay a portion of the charges now and agree to pay the balance in a year. By that time, if the fees are in fact reduced, the additional amount wouldn’t be owed any more. Should the development charges not be reduced, the Port of Garibaldi, which owns the land Smith’s boat and vehicle wash would sit on, agreed to pay the balance remaining a year down the road. The Garibaldi Port Commission and Garibaldi City Council each held special meetings August 28 to approve the agreement. Construction will begin immediately. The boat and vehicle wash is expected to be in business by the end of December.

Monday Musical Club of Tillamook seeking sponsors for 19th season The Monday Musical Club of Tillamook has announced a lineup of four fantastic musical groups for its 2013 -2014 concert season. Everything Fitz, the Fitzgerald Family Band, will kick off the club’s 19th season with an appearance Sunday, Sept. 29, at 2 p.m. Featuring some of Canada’s finest young musicians, the group’s show offers something for every member of the family including high-energy fiddling and step dancing in a variety of musical styles from jigs and reels, bluegrass, jazz and swing, to Celtic and gospel. The Highwaymen – the ultimate tribute to country music greats Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings – will transport you back in time to when the original group toured the country. Their 90-minute show on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 2 p.m. is full of upbeat, honkey-tonk hits such as “Ring of Fire,” “Dukes of Hazzard,’ and “On the Road Again.” Next up on Sunday, Feb. 2, 2014, at 2 p.m. are The Tokens, the Brooklyn, N.Y., group that recorded the smash hit “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” in 1961. The Tokens’ other hits include “Tonight I Fell in Love” and “Portrait of My Love.” Rounding out the concert season Sunday, March 30, 2014, is a return engagement by the legendary Glenn Miller Orchestra, a longtime favorite of Tillamook audiences. The band has been a favorite throughout the world since the 1940s with a string of classic hits including “In The Mood,” “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “String of Pearls,” and “Moonlight Serenade.” All performances will take place in the Don Whitney Auditorium at Tillamook High School, 2605 12th St. in Tillamook. Season subscribers pay only $80 for each adult and $55 for each student for reserved, center section seating at all four concerts. That amounts to a big savings off the cost of four single-event adult and student reserved seat admissions purchased separately for each event. Advance tickets for individual events are $25 each for adults and $20 for students. Tickets at the door are priced at $30 for adults and $25 for students. To order season or advance tickets, send a check payable to the Monday Musical Club of Til-

Cheesemakers drop the ball The season opened Aug. 30 on Doc Adams field on a bright summer evening full of clear skies and high hopes. And while the home team might have been bested by Clatskanie 30-22, they didn’t leave anything on the field – and kept the crowd on their toes. As predicted by Tillamook High School Head Coach Matt Dickson, senior quarterback Matt Strang was something to see, breaking free on the third play to run a 54-yeard touchdown. Strang’s throwing was on the money most of the night as well, pairing up with receiver Isaac Stellflug twice

– once when Stellflug side stepped the defense right into the end zone and again on the two-point conversion, doubling Tillamook’s lead over Clastkanie. And they didn’t stop there as the second quarter began, forcing a turn over almost instantly. But they weren’t able to score – unlike the Tigers who tied the game 14-14 when Colten Puzey scored a 70-yard run. That, coupled with the twopoint conversion tied the game going into halftime. As the sun continued to drop in the horizon, fans were on the edges of their seats, but the third quarter proved less eventful than the two before it.

The score remained the same until the fourth quarter when Drew Owens tipped the scale in Tillamook’s favor with a fiveyard touch down. With less than 10 minutes remaining, the Cheesemaker’s again made the two-point conversion. The excitement was almost tangible – and while a touch down from Puzey might have shook the Mooks, it was removed from the board due to an unsportsmanlike penalty. However the Tigers regrouped and managed a second touchdown and twopoint conversion to again tie the score. And they didn’t stop there, scoring

again with less than two minutes in the game. With bated breath fans watched as Stellflug intercepted the ball, lining his team up at the Tiger’s 29-yeard line and 50 seconds left to tie the game and force them into overtime. The stands leaped to their feet as a possible score from Owens in the far corner of the end zone might have tied the game – but it was striken from the board in a technicality. Stellflug tried again to win the game for his team, but he was shut down just inches from the goal line with 0:0 left on the clock. Tillamook plays North Marion next on Sept. 6.

The Tillamook High School girls soccer team received a $3,200 grant from the Siletz Tribe. The grant will cover the cost of the girls’ new uniforms, goalie uniforms, and shin guards for this fall season. Graciela Macias, Saysha Pitchford, and Shyanne Bellante attended the award banquet in Lincoln City and received the check for the team. “We are extremely grateful,” said head coach Daeh Christensen. “Due to the teams uniforms being out of compliance, they would not have been able to play this fall without the purchase of new uniforms. The tribe made this purchase possible for the girls.”

ODFW Salmon and Trout Advisory Committee to meet in Tillamook on Sept. 20 The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Salmon and Trout Enhancement Program Advisory Committee will meet in Tillamook on Friday, Sept. 20. The committee will meet from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Commission Room at the ODFW North Coast Watershed District Office, 4907 Third Street in Tillamook. The agenda is available at fish/STEP/STAC.asp and includes reports on STEP activities and projects, program updates and review of minigrant applications. The committee will also review proposals to renew the Whiskey Creek and Rhoades Pond STEP propagation programs. Any STEP project that rears fish for release (including egg incubation) must be approved by ODFW. Part of the approval process includes public input and review by the Advisory Committee. The Whiskey Creek and Rhoades Pond proposals can be viewed on the STEP website and written comments must be submitted by Sept. 16, 2013 and can be sent to Kevin.Herkamp@ The meeting is open to the public, as is a tour of Tillamook-area STEP projects Friday afternoon. Members of the public must provide their own transportation and can call ODFW at (503) 947-6211 for driving directions. The Oregon Legislature created Salmon and Trout Enhancement Program in 1981 to provide a way for volunteers to participate in the restoration of native stocks of salmon, steelhead and trout. The STEP Advisory Committee makes recommendations to ODFW and the Fish and Wildlife Commission on issues regarding its programs.

Cousins born days apart

Bunn Creek Road temporarily closed through September

A two-mile stretch of Forest Service Road 1004, locally known as Bunn Creek Road, will be closed beginning Sept. 3 through Sept. 20. Forest Road 1004 is located a quarter mile north of Beaver. The closure begins about one quarter mile from the junction with Highway 101. Forest Road 1004 will be accessible on weekends during the closure period. Work being done includes replacing failing culverts and some paving. “We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause forest visitors,” said George Buckingham, Hebo District Ranger. “Maintenance is necessary to extend the life of the road and improve fish passage,” he added. Two alternate routes are available for accessing Forest Road 1004 beyond the closure. Coming from the south, visitors can take Farmer

Creek Road from Highway 101 and follow it until it meets Forest Road 1004. From the north, visitors can take Highway 101 to Sand Lake Road, after about two miles, turn south onto Forest Road 1106. Follow 1106 until it meets Forest Road 1004. This project is funded through Legacy Roads and Trails Program which funds projects designed to reduce or eliminate road and trail risks to water quality and aquatic habitat, while reducing future maintenance requirements and increasing the safety and durability of the transportation system.

Pub Talk: Conversations about faith, honoring doubt and new perspectives while exploring Have you ever wondered whether dogs have souls, or how likely is it there are other worlds in the universe like our own? Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 6 p.m. at 2nd Street Market located at 2003 2nd Street in Tillamook, The Bay City United Methodist Church invites you to join in exploring these questions, and many others at Pub Talk. Pub Talk is people sitting around a table, talking about issues of faith and philosophy, ethics and ideas over food and beverage. It is a safe place where people can be honest about topics of faith, ask any questions, and at the end of the night, know it’s perfectly fine to disagree with one another. It is an open conversation where anyone is able to share their thoughts about life and faith, including atheists, Muslims, Zoroastrians, and everyone in

between. An open conversation, by its very nature, will welcome everyone, including nonChristians, humanists, and people of all ethnic, religious and sexual orientations. Pub Talk seeks to be a welcoming space for all people and does not preach or proselytize. Pub Talk recognizes that there is no one “right answer” to any question. Whether you attend a place of worship or not; join in a glass of beer, wine, soda, or a cup of coffee, and feel free to join in these interesting and varied conversations. If you are interested in joining this exciting new venture, or would like more information, you can contact the Bay United Methodist Church by calling (503) 3772679. Their email address is: baycityumc@embarqmail. com.

Alzheimer’s Association to provide policy updates The Alzheimer’s Association Oregon Chapter will hold a town hall meeting from 7 to 9 p.m. Sept. 4 in the conference room of the Oregon Department of Forestry, 5005 Third St., in Tillamook. Oregonians — particularly those living with Alzheimer’s, their caregivers and loved ones, representatives from the state and local government, the research community, health systems and long-term care communities — are invited to attend the meeting. “Town halls give us the opportunity to share what has happened with the National Plan for Alzheimer’s disease, as well as the state plan,” said Jon Bartholomew, public policy director for the Alzheimer’s Association Oregon Chapter. “We’re eager to give community members an update — and to get feedback from them about what work needs to be done. “The comments we received in 2011 and 2012

helped to shape the work we’ve done up to this point,” he said. “We look forward to having the feedback we get this year guide our future work.” At the town hall, attendants also will learn what resources are available in the local community to help serve the needs of people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, as well as the needs of their caregivers. The town hall meetings are held in collaboration with the members of the State Plan for Alzheimer’s Disease in Oregon Implementation Team (SPADO-IT), which is a project of numerous community partners in Oregon who are concerned about the impact of Alzheimer’s disease on our communities. The Alzheimer’s Association Oregon Chapter is a core member of SPADO-IT. For more information, visit townhall, call 503-416-0202 or send an email to Jon.

Fenceposts NEHALEM



held my breath all week hoping for nice weather on Saturday with the anticipation of the upcoming nuptials of two very special people. I woke up to find a beautiful day on Aug. 24. Hannah Johnson and Philip Godsey had asked our daughter Emma if she would like to be the flower girl in their wedding; she was ecstatic about it. The day was wonderful, warm sunshine with a cool breeze early in the day, then calming down at the moment the bridesmaids arrived in a red GTO and the bride followed behind in a white Corvette. The altar was decorated beautifully at the top of the Nehalem City Park, with family and friends there to wish them well on their journey through life together.

oday, I am six days post surgery… For months I suffered from an acute sinus infection that my medical team could just not get a handle on. My right maxillary sinus, multiple ethmoid chambers and frontal sinus were filled with infection and completely blocked. How do you spell “P-A-I- N?” My husband has always said that I could be “kind of a pain in the ….” But trust me – this pain was truly “ALL in my head!” Are the levels of commercial and recreational clams being harvested in Netarts Bay sustainable? The county commissioners sent a letter


Happy birthday, first, to Stephen Rurak, April Ferebee, Tim Sutfin and Melinda Sump (all born Sept. 1), Caelotta Roddy (Sept. 3), Mayor Suzanne McCarthy and Isabella Brewer (Sept. 4), Margaret Patrick (Sept. 6), Manny Orozco, Lanai Spliethof and Amie Miller (Sept. 7), Aaron Yunker, Jeff Wilcox and Irene Vandecoevering (Sept. 10), Sherri Harberts (Sept. 11), Tina Dillenburg (Sept. 12), Ronda Repass (Sept. 13), Paul Klay and Dena Lock (Sept. 14), Lorraine Vandecoevering, Roberta Rurak, Lorie Simmons and Ron Breazile (Sept. 16).

ring and one the groom’s on pillows. The flower girl was next in line throwing pale pink and white rose petals down the aisle, She wore an ivory colored dress with the top portion made of satin and the bottom in flowing tulle. The bridesmaids followed next in lovely pale pink dresses, and a bridal attendant in a gray suite with pale pink tie. While the bridesmaids were carrying lovely bouquets of pale pink roses, the groomsmen were waiting up at the altar wearing gray suits with pale pink ties, handkerchiefs and pale pink boutonnieres to match the bridesmaids. The groom waiting for his bride was in a gray suit with pale pink tie, handkerchief and pale pink boutonniere. Walking up the rose petal aisle in an exquisite strapless ivory dress with the top in beaded satin and the bottom in flowing tulle with a long veil and her hair in a French braid pulled back on both sides into a lose bun was Hannah, carrying a gorgeous bouquet of mixed greenery and white and pale pink roses. Hannah and Philip looked amazing and so happy with smiles and tears of joy. The reception that followed was spectacular with appetizers of crackers, dips, salmon balls, olives and more. The dinner

with teriyaki chicken breast, pork kabobs, three different kinds of salads, rolls, breads, fresh crab, oyster shooters, steamed oysters, cookies, macaroons, coffee, soda, juice, a wine bar, beer, sparkling cider, and lemonade. Every table was set with chocolate heart candies, sweethearts and small bubble sets, and of course the traditional mints wrapped in tulle with ribbon. The wedding cake was a beautiful white cake with raspberry filling decorated with green hydrangeas and tiers of colorful cupcakes. They had an area decorated with mini lights and candles for dancing. While the newlyweds were enjoying their first dance together, family and friends blowing bubbles all around them. As the night fell upon us there were sparklers to light in celebration of the couple. A terrific wedding and reception. Congratulations Philip and Hannah Godsey – may your new life together be filled with joy and laughter. Happy Birthday this week to: Cher Vance of Nehalem, Sherry Marugg of Nehalem, Jade Anderson of Nehalem, and Happy Anniversary to Debbie and Dwain Vermilyea of Wallowa.

to Roy Elicker, the director of the Oregon Department of Fish and Game on Aug. 18, requesting the data to answer this question. SEACORE (Shellfish and Estuarine Assessment of Coastal Oregon) has been collecting data in Netarts Bay for two years. Four scientists have been working all summer documenting the # of clams in Netarts Bay and doing a habitat assessment. ODFW hired commercial divers to do clam counts in the bay channels. Joel Picket has worked full-time this summer on Netarts Bay – asking questions, educating and gathering clamming information. According to Steve Rumril, ODFW Shellfish Program Leader, the Department has been assigned to actively review, all data and compile a report regarding the sustainability of commercial and recreational clam harvesting in Netarts Bay. They are to present this data to the Oregon Department of Fish and Game Commissioners by the end of this week. When the commission receives this data, a public process will occur. They will hear public input and ask for recommendations. Then a “wait” and “see” clock begins. Only the Oregon Fish and Game Commission can make any decisions about commercial, recreational clamming and the sustainability of Netarts Bay Shellfish.

The first meeting of the Oceanside Community Club this fall is Monday, Sept. 9 with social time beginning at 6 p.m. and dinner beginning at 6:30 p.m., followed by a short meeting. The OCC Board is hosting the first meeting, and hamburgers, veggie burgers and hot dogs will be on the BBQ. This Oceanside community event welcomes residents and guests and invites them to bring a dish or dessert that will compliment the BBQ. No speaker is planned. It will be a “get-acquainted with you neighbors” evening! Monthly potlucks are usually held the first Monday of each month between Sept. and June. The exception is September because of Labor Day weekend. Rentals and Membership dues sustain the building and suggested price is $10 per person. TheClub Officers are: Sarah McDonald - pres., Evlyn Newell - vice pres., Brian Bucknam - sec., and Bob Steele - Treas. The annual end-of-summer “BOTT” party will be held on Saturday, Sept. 7 at 6 p.m. on Schooner Beach. Nineteen years ago, (give or take a few yrs.) Bill Bracelin started a tradition for locals, to forget about being politically correct, and celebrate that the summer invasion was over… A few hilarious effigies, a Bon Fire, food, music and fun, mark the days of Netarts and Oceanside kinda getting back to normal. If we ever were!

Best wishes to all of you. And thanks again to Gunnar for the “Birthday Club” list. The Garibaldi Grub Club, which has been serving hot meals for kids Monday through Thursday all summer on the dance floor at city hall, is winding up operations for the year; their last lunch was Thursday, Aug. 29 (most of the other Grub Clubs in the county had ceased operation a week or longer before). Thanks to all the volunteers who made this possible this summer: Jack Anderson, Lois Daniels, Casey Ferguson, Veronica Garske, Frances Hartwell, Chris Miller, Carlotta Roddy, Cindy Scroggins, and Grub Club’s “mother hen” herself, Jane Anderson.

Thanks, also, to Pastor Jeff Coon and God’s Lighthouse Church, who were the Garibaldi Grub Club’s sponsors; to the Tillamook Food Bank, who were the main food source; to the City of Garibaldi, for donating the use of the kitchen and hall; to the Garibaldi Museum, for a field trip for the kids; and to Norma at the library, and Judy and Shelley at the post office, for their PR work. On Saturday, Sept. 7, the Garibaldi Museum will be holding a reception for local artist Donna Ludwig Peterson. Donna is the Museum’s “Artist of the Month” for September, and her art will be on display through Sept. 30 in the museum’s community room. The reception is from 1 to 3 p.m. The following Saturday, Sept. 14, there will be another square dance at city hall, 7 to 9:30 p.m., with the Wave Steppers Square Dance Club; Janet Shannon, who was the club’s caller for many years (and is still the associate caller), will be calling the square dances and cueing the round dances. $5 admission for dancers. And there will be refreshments.

at Sears hosted Hebo women’s book group last Thursday at her ocean view home. We discussed “Cutting for Stone,” by Verghese, the much-enjoyed story of twin Ethiopian boys who grow up to be surgeons. Besides our hostess and me, attendees included Sharon Kesey, Patty Shurts, Nancy Whitehead, and Marilyn Burkhardt who was in town for the Artisan’s Festival. Speaking of Tierra del Mar book lovers, Anne Sweazy Kulju, author of “Historical Fiction Pageturners,” has published a second book. Though I haven’t had a chance to read it, I know that “Bodie” is based on a true story, and links 1990’s Cloverdale with an unsolved crime in gold-rush era California.

ain? What’s that? It’s been a long time since seeing rain. Certainly we needed it. Hopefully it will slow down the wild fires. Be careful of slick roads if you are driving. The school buses will be stopping and starting after the Labor Day weekend so drive carefully and obey the laws.    After talking to Janet Stahl about the Nea-Rock Garden Club meeting and garden tours, I find the group had a wonderful time

this Wednesday, Sept. 4, at Nestucca Jr./Sr. High School to define the club’s function and set goals for the coming year. The Boosters hope to provide assistance to programs affected by shrinking budgets. Any interested parent, grandparent, or community member is welcome. Help is needed selling concessions at home games. Contact Tawnya Dimmitt 503-398-2846. The Presbyterian Women will serve a last Taco Salad lunch for the season from 11:30-1:00 p.m. next Wednesday, Sept. 11 at the Church in Pacific City. $5 buys a salad, dessert, and a drink to benefit the Pacific City Arts Association. Questions? Contact Cathy Jones, 503-201-7462. Kiwanda Community Center (KCC) will host a Flea Market from 9 to 3 on Saturdays, Sept. 14 and Oct. 5. Come see what there is to see or sell your goodies for easy cash. Tables are $7 each. Call Gary, 503-965-7900. Thanks to Watersheds Council Coordinator Alex Sifford for word that nearly 5,000 digital images of the Siuslaw National Forest are available to the public through Oregon State University Libraries. The forest extends from Tillamook to Coos Bay, and the photos include pictures dating back to 1908. He reminds

Fencepost readers that the Watershed Council resumes monthly board meetings at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at KCC in Pacific City. Remember that OR 130, Little Nestucca River Road, will be closed to all traffic from milepost 3 to milepost 4 from 8 a.m. on Friday, Sept.20 until 6 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 22 for bridge work. The closure will allow crews to replace the full deck and structural wood timbers on the Austin Creek Bridge. Traffic will be detoured to OR 22, Three Rivers Highwas. Speedy recovery wishes go out to Steve Byrd who is recovering from an emergency appendectomy performed at the hospital in Tillamook. His wife Lori Galloway-Byrd reports as we go to press that he is feeling much better these days, resting at home.

seeing gardens they had never seen before. Summer tours have been great and the best summer weather I can remember. Thanks to all the people who have shown the garden club their beautiful gardens.   Lunch was at the La Mexicana restaurant. A birthday celebration was held for Sue Aalykke. She loved it. Those who came to the Nea-Rock Garden Club lunch and tours were Sue Aalykke, Mikki Gruber, Dru Preston, Nancy Pickett, Maxine McDonald Ryland, Natalie Watts, Nuala Beane, Freddie Graves, Betty Rolston, Carol Weber, Helen Blaser, Alice Hodson, Merle Wine, Cathy Normile, Evelyn Wagner, Dottie Stone, Jane Brown, Janet Stahl, Corinne Duma. The meeting was held at Rhonda and Terry Wright’s home in the Hogan. Mike Randall gave

a personal tour of his small space garden which was very impressive. He grows15 edible crops in the raised beds in his back yard. James and Barbara Billstine’s garden was a combination of vegetables and flowers, as well as benches. Phyllis Holmes was in an accident and her hip was broken. She was still in the hospital on Monday. Remember Phyllis in your prayers for a speedy recovery. There will be information on our next Nea-Rock Garden Club meeting later. Warm evenings and lovely sunsets have been wonderful to see. Been walking down Pacific Avenue to the “Betty Bench” and enjoying watching the sun go down and the beautiful August moon come up. Feeling lucky to live in Cape Meares.

SUGAR BROSIUS 503-653-1449


am so proud to write about this young Rockaway Beach resident! Shonta Young has recently shipped off to don the uniform of the U.S. Army. He will be at Ft. Sill for basic training, then he will be going to Ft. Sam Houston in San Antonio for his schooling to become a medic. He should be finished in March and then sent to his first duty station. Many of us have watched him grow up into a wonderful young man. Keep him in your thoughts. And another graduate of NKN, Branson Laszlo, has just shipped off to Harvard. My daughter Amber remembers him as just a little fellow playing with Akshar Patel at the Tradewinds Motel. My how these kids grow up fast. Congratulations and good luck to you, Branson. Our very good friends, the Patels, owners of the Tradewinds Motel, came back from a wonderful month in Europe. They visited Italy, England, Germany, Austria, France and Switzerland. So far we have seen only the Vatican pictures, but hope to see all the rest soon. It’s been a busy summer for a lot of our residents. Please don’t hesitate to tell me what’s going on in your life. I love writing your stories. NKN Head Start is a free comprehensive preschool program that provides edu-


KAREN RUST 503-377-9669 503-300-0019

by John Sollman for Karen Rust


’m guest writing the Fencepost the next several weeks for my friend, Karen Rust. Actually, I’m doing it a week early because of an unplanned event, one of those things that crops up unexpectedly to louse up even the best-laid of plans. Karen had an accident at Camp Hope. But I’m sure you already know that. She’s in a world of hurts this week, and not up to doing her Sept. 4 column. At the outset, on behalf of the Beautification Committee and the Bay City Boosters, I’d like to thank the Tillamook Bay Boating Club for their generous donation. The boating club has been meeting at the Bay City Community Hall for many years, and they have been involved in many projects for community betterment. A major project was installation of a net pen in the Friends Camp swimming area each year. They have also adopted sections of local highways to keep them free of roadside trash. Sadly, all that has come to an end. The boating club recently disbanded, and made charitable disposition of the funds remaining in the treasury. Former Club member Chuck Bartholet came to the city council’s Aug. 13 meeting and presented Mayor Shaena Peterson with a generous check payable to the Bay City Beautification Committee. The beautification committee was one of four recipients of the boating

cational experiences for children to learn through play, direct education and field trips. Parental involvement is encouraged. This excellent program is in Nehalem. There is limited transportation. So if you have a child who is 3 or 4 by Sept. 1, contact this wonderful program for an application. You can go to or call 503-368-5103. There is limited space, but they will accept applications throughout the year. Driving through the town lately I have seen a lot of travelers coming through. And our beautiful new wayside is getting rave reviews. The pirate ship playground for our younger kids to play on is totally cool. Being fenced in was a great idea. Dad’s and mom’ s have fewer worries as cars pull in and out of the pavement. I give it an A+. This is actually the best time of year for the residents of our town. We can slow our pace as we begin to enjoy the autumn weather. There are lots of things in our community that go on year round. We have Senior Meals every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at St. Mary’s at 11:30 a.m. sharp. Then the Parks and Rec has clogging on Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. and line dancing on Thursday at 1 p.m. at the community center. Of course every Friday and Saturday the Lions have Bingo at their hall. See, there’s no excuse to get bored around here. And be sure to stop by our businesses in town that need a winter boost! I hate to see doors closing. “No one has ever made himself great by showing how small someone else is.” That’s Rockaway Beach “Sugar Coated!

club’s charity. I mentioned the Bay City Community Hall. Soon it will have a new name. In June the city council accepted Pat Vining’s recommendation that the hall be named in honor of Addie Montgomery, who died in March. She would have been 102 in August. On Aug. 9, Addie Montgomery’s family and close friends gathered at her home on Pennsylvania Avenue to share memories and lay her ashes to rest next to those of George “Monty” Montgomery, her husband. Addie and Monty now rest together beneath a beautiful rhododendron Monty had planted when he and Addie built their home. The Bay City Volunteer Firefighters’ Association held their annual community picnic at the Bay City Fire Station Saturday, Aug. 24. It was well attended and the food was great. The “Map Your Neighborhood” program got many block captain signups, volunteers who help their neighbors prepare for the emergencies we experience during the winter, and for the major earthquake and tsunami that lurk in our future. The fire department took signups for new smoke alarms, which will be installed free of charge during September, a program under the aegis of the State Fire Marshal. These alarms will have 10-year batteries, I’m told. Also, the State Forestry Department was represented by Trevor Downey and a young lady whose name I didn’t get. They were urging residents to clear brush and shrubs away from buildings, to provide a fire break in case of a local wildfire. They also passed out literature identifying fire resistant shrubs suitable for planting near homes. School is starting, so watch for small children waiting for the school bus. We have many children, but none to spare.

“Don’t That Sea Look Wide and Deep” Pam’s life might as well have been a Greek drama. I launched my dory into a flat ocean. The wave came out of nowhere, defying logic, growing like a nightmare. If I did nothing it would break over the boat, a catastrophe. I put the motor in gear and charged. When I got to the crest, I pulled the throttle back, hoping to slide down the back side. Too late. It had broken under us, leaving us high in the air. We didn’t know then, but the fall broke Pam’s foot in five places. It was beginning to swell. Pam told Bill to get a bucket of seawater. She stuck her foot in it. She said, let’s fish. Pam died recently. That wave was nothing new. One after another hit her all her life. She was used to them, but when I tell you, you’ll want to judge her. You’ll frown with disapproval. In all cultures, it’s the strictest taboo. It’s unforgiveable. Sophocles wrote Greek dramas based on lesser taboos. She had five children. She left four of them with an


alcoholic husband and took the baby. She told me if she had stayed she would have died. Men do it all the time, leave their children. I did. I wasn’t ostracized the way we do women. I can think of few taboos as costly. Pam had to pay and pay. Good, I can hear you whisper. The first wave to hit Pam was the mother who rejected her, but not her two younger sisters who sat in front of the Christmas tree opening a pile of presents. There is no need for you to come down, her mother told her. Santa didn’t bring you anything. The second wave was when her church, which

blamed her for her first husband’s homosexuality, rejected and shunned her. The third wave was her second husband busy drinking himself to death. But a decision like she made comes with a cost. And how can you live without your family? There was a lot of family repairing to be done. As you might suppose, her children took exception to being abandoned. Maybe, Pam thought, if I give enough, they’ll forgive me. She took in one daughter with MS and was both a grandmother and mother to her children. She provided a house for one, a mobile home for another. She gave money and help to one who couldn’t manage to stay out of prison, which probably didn’t do anything for Pam’s feelings of guilt. She tried to get on with the rest of her life. She met Bill in the Road Kill Café out West somewhere. If it had been the plot in a romantic comedy it would have been called a cute meet. Instant love. They worried it might not be real. They devised a test. If we still feel

the same in the morning, we’ll meet at the intersection of two local highways. There they were. She reached out to all her family, and before she died, she’d just about done it, too. They had forgiven her, as much as you can forgive something like that. Why didn’t she take all the children? Why didn’t she kick out her alcoholic husband? You can’t do it, judge her, unless the alcoholic was your husband, her life your life. You can’t judge her because your instruction book for living tells you, judge not. The following year, she came to me and looked into my face with those liquid brown eyes of hers, standing close, as was her way, the way most abused stand close, hoping for approval, and said, I have no right to ask. I’ll understand if you say no, but would you take me out in the dory again? We have a word to describe someone who will not be defeated no matter how the gods conspire. It’s a Greek word.

Garden journals are an important tool


ard to believe Labor Day has come and gone and children are back in school this week. It has been one of the nicest summers I remember: not too windy, lots of warm days, and lots of sun. But the last couple of weeks I have noticed a hint of fall in the air. And the fact that the spiders are weaving webs all through the garden is a sure sign autumn is on its way. I had such a beautiful lily blooming in the garden this summer. It was an “Orientpet” (a cross between an Oriental lily and a trumpet lily) from “The Lily Garden” in Vancouver, Washington, called ‘Scheherazade’ and it had over 20 blooms on the single stalk. It was at its peak just before the county fair, but I just could not bear to cut it down and take it in to enter. Instead, I took a picture of it and entered that in the


photography section at the Fair. It didn’t win a prize, but

I now have it in a nice frame in my office and am reminded every time I look at it that this

particular lily was extremely gorgeous this year. Since that photo was such fun, I thought it might be interesting to go into the garden and take more photos of the flowers and other plants. I have incorporated these photos into my garden journal so I now have a really good record of what the garden looked like this summer. I try to also write things that I have done in the garden on a regular basis, but even if I don’t find the time to do that, the photos can help remind me of what I did and when. Long ago I realize that if I didn’t make keeping a garden journal fun, I would never want to do one. So, along with recording garden changes, I have been having some fun with the camera by doing some “artsy” photography, too. I have a small Canon digital camera, but even that one has a feature that allows me to

do close-up photography. By adjusting the camera settings and being very careful to focus before I shoot, I can get a pretty cool picture with very little effort. And by downloading them into my computer, I can do all sorts of unusual techniques, morphing colors, blurring edges, and just generally playing with the images. This past week I have taken photos of sunflowers before they bloomed, the heather flowers, a few different types of leaves, a rose with the traditional dew on the petals, and some South African impatiens’ flowers. But my favorites have been the close-up photos. You know… the ones they used to put in magazines and ask you to guess what the object is. I am including one of my favorites today. I won’t ask you to figure it out; I’ll just tell you it is a succulent with a drop of water in the center.
