Serving Lincoln City Since 1927


There are many things that make the local news in 2019. The following are Managing Editor Max Kirkendall’s picks for the top trending stories based on the News Guard website.

MARCH 23, 2019

School officials take action to ease youth video game addiction If you are a parent with a child who loves to play video games, you might watch for signs of addiction. Lincoln County School District officials have mounted an effort to help. The News Guard conducted a conversation with Lincoln County School District Superintendent Dr. Karen Gray and Vince Dye, Lincoln County School District Technology, Data, Student Information and Assessment Administrator about video game addiction. News Guard: What are your concerns about children’s video games addiction? Gray: Today, almost all children play video games in one form or another. One study has the number up to 90 percent. These games are played on computers, game consoles, cell phones, and handheld devices. Everywhere you find children you will also find computer games, and the fascination with electronic entertainment is equal between girls and boys.


New year, new laws for Oregonians STOCK IMAGE

Although most parents would be quite happy if their child’s computer gaming was limited to educational programs, the reality is that the computer games children play are primar-

ily for pure entertainment, not for education. Keep in mind that when children play age-appropriate com-

Hilltop reopens in Lincoln City


Otis Cafe fire leaves community in shock had the fire extinguished in approximately 30 minutes. The Café had heavy smoke inside the building and flames were seen from the eaves and chimney. The damage was contained to the kitchen area and attic, according to NLFR, but the smoke and heat throughout the building caused extensive damage. “Fortunately, nobody was in there and nobody was hurt,” NLFR District Captain Jim Kusz said.

VOL. 93 NO. 1

SB 320 Would allow Oregon to stay on daylight savings time year-round, but only if the federal government passes a law allowing the switch. Washington and California also must agree to switch. The bill would exempt the portion of Eastern Oregon that operates on Mountain Time. HB 2005 Sets up a system for paid family leave in which Oregon workers can take off up to 12 weeks of paid leave to care for a new child or sick family member, or to recover from a serious illness or domestic violence. The leave would be paid for by a state insurance fund that employers and employees would contribute less than one percent of their paycheck to, similar to worker’s compensation. Employers with fewer than 25 employees will not have to pay into the fund but their employees will still be eligible to apply for compensation during their leave of absence. The state will begin collecting funds in 2022 and employees will be able to begin collecting benefits in 2023. SB 608 Caps annual rent increases at seven percent plus the change in consumer price index. The bill, which took effect upon passage, also prohibits landlords from evicting month-to-month renters without cause after 12 months of residency.

HB 2509 Bans stores and restaurants from providing singleuse plastic bags at checkout, and requires them to charge at least five cents per bag if they provide paper or other alternatives, beginning in 2020.

SB 3 Allows community colleges to offer four-year bachelor’s degrees. Colleges would have to gain approval for each program through the Higher Education Coordinating Committee by showing that the program would address a workforce need not being met.

Year in Review. A1-3, A8-10 Obituaries.........................A3 Opinion..............................A5

As we hang up our new 2020 calendars and get started on our New Years resolutions, Oregonians will be faced with several new state laws that may impact our day-to-day lives. After the 2019 Oregon Legislative Session, hundreds of new laws that passed will become official starting Jan. 1. Here’s a list of a few notable changes that Oregonians should be aware of.

SB 90 Prohibits restaurants from giving customers singleuse plastic straws unless the customer specifically requests one, effective immediately.

The building was vacant for years. Local businessman Benson Galvan drove by it almost every day, the old Hilltop Inn Family Restaurant dark and quiet, yet preserved - he would later discover - like a time capsule with everything still in tact, right down to the silverware and dinner plates. Over time, Galvan, who co-owns the Mazatlan Mexican restaurant in Lincoln City with brother Salvador, felt the tug of opportunity. “I didn’t think I would have a chance to get it,” Galvan said of the Hilltop. “But between the two of us, we got it.”

A coastal icon and true family business was delivered a crushing blow on Independence Day, as the famous Otis Café caught fire causing heavy damage. Although the building’s status remains uncertain, one thing is for sure: the Otis community is not going to let the Café die out. On Thursday, July 4, there were reports of heavy smoke coming from the Café structure at approximately 7:45 p.m. North Lincoln Fire and Rescue (NLFR) was dispatched to the scene and arrived within ten minutes and

Robbery at Bank of the West

On June 14, police confirmed that a robber held employees at gunpoint, fleeing the scene with an unknown amount of cash. According to Lincoln City Police, the robber entered the Bank of the West in South Lincoln City shortly after its 9 a.m. opening. On the morning of July 1, Jack Palmer Van Eaton, 72, last known as being from the Portland area, was arrested in connection with the robbery. At about 7:57 a.m. members of the Lincoln City Police Department, assisted by officers from other law enforcement agencies, conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle Van Eaton was driving in the 1900 block of NW 33RD Street and took him into custody without incident. A search warrant was served on the vehicle Van Eaton was driving, and on a hotel room Van Eaton was staying in, as well as on Van Eaton himself.

SEPTEMBER 17, 2019

Authorities locate body of missing person near Rose Lodge On Sept. 14, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, along with members of Lincoln County Search and Rescue and the Lincoln City Police Department, resumed searching a property on Widow Creek Road for missing person Cameron Shelden. Searchers utilized drone technology and dogs trained to detect human remains and excavation assistance from the Lincoln County Road Department. The search was done with the consent of the property owner. The team searched extensively in the large area of difficult terrain and heavy brush, but Shelden was

not located. On the morning of Sept. 17, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office received a call from the property owner advising a deceased subject was located on the property. Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office deputies and detectives responded to the property and were directed to a location outside of the area previously searched with the excavation equipment. Detectives located the remains of a highly decomposed subject in dense vegetation. The subject was presumptively identified as Cameron Shelden.

the top bakery in each of the United States. For Oregon, Degele’s Depoe Baykery was the top choice. In 1966-69, Degele got his first job selling Spudnud Donuts door-to-door in Billings, Montana. After watching his family run their own bakery for several years, Degele moved to the Oregon Coast in 1982 to work as a

cook at Salishan Lodge and later became lead baker for four years. In 2010, Degele began taking his baked goods to the local farmers markets in Lincoln City and Waldport. After a year, he decided it was time to take a chance and open up a shop of his own.

Health Matters by Samaritan Health Services

Trust, persistence lead to cancer diagnosis and survivorship Vallie Gibby looked out her living room window at the steel gray Pacific Ocean stretching to the horizon. Sipping on a mug of spicy tea and spooning fresh whipped cream on an Oregon strawberry, she emphatically stated, “I would have been dead by now.” The 69-year-old Lincoln City woman was reflecting on how her diagnosis of colon cancer could have been the end for her. She sips again from her mug. “I’m Canadian, you know, and we enjoy our afternoon tea.” Tea isn’t the only thing Vallie and Lynn, her husband of 40 years, enjoy. Since retirement, they have traveled to many countries around the world, both for pleasure and through volunteerism with Church of the Nazarene. Every year they volunteer with a mission in Mexico. “We see a need and we jump in,” she said. “We just love.” Caring for others comes naturally to Vallie. She is retired from a long and varied nursing career — including working with breast cancer clinicians at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia — before moving to Lincoln City a decade ago. Because of this, she is very knowledgeable about medicine, patient care and the potential outcomes of terrible diseases such as colon cancer. In late 2017, Vallie’s primary care doctor, Marilyn Fraser, MD, reminded her that it was time for a routine 10-year colonoscopy. Despite feeling

perfectly healthy and having no symptoms, Vallie agreed to make an appointment because she respects Dr. Fraser, not because she thought she was at risk or feared the outcomes she witnessed during her health care career.

“She’s top notch,” Vallie says of Dr. Fraser, with a smile. “I adore her. Oh, and she’s Canadian, too.” Shortly after her colonoscopy at Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital, Vallie learned from her general surgeon that there was part of a polyp inside a tricky bend of her colon that he was uncertain about. “My surgeon was not afraid to tell me that he was not 100% satisfied with what he saw and that he wanted another surgeon’s opinion.” Just days after her first colonoscopy, Vallie was in for round two at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center.

Vallie Gibby and her husband, Lynn Gibby Vallie didn’t need to undergo chemotherapy or radiation treatment. Vallie sees a cancer specialist every three months to monitor the cancer markers in her blood and has a CT or MRI scan of her intestine annually. After a colonoscopy one year after surgery, she received a clean bill of health and now only has to have a colonoscopy every three years.

“Immediately afterward, Dr. Schwartz kindly said to me, ‘You have Stage 2-A cancer.’ No matter how prepared you think you are for this possibility, “I feel fabulous and am forever grateful,” she said. there is still the shock factor,” Vallie said, recalling “Going forward, I know I am in the best of hands that moment. “But, I couldn’t pretend it’s not there. and look forward to a long and healthy life.” I knew that I needed to get it out.” Learn more about Vallie and lifesaving Very quickly, Vallie had an appointment to remove colonoscopy screenings at the cancerous tissue. Based on a genetic study,

Community update on new hospitals in Lincoln County

1988 building is technology-ready

The full renovation and earthquake retrofitting of Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital’s two-story building, originally constructed in 1988, is close to completion. The beautiful brick and glass exterior seamlessly matches the façade of the three-story building that opened this past January. Inside the 1988 building, the Information Services team is actively creating the

technology network that will support computers, phones, medical equipment and more, with an eye toward the mid-March opening.

Training begins in Lincoln City hospital

Construction on the new Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital in Lincoln City is nearly complete. Furnishings and equipment are moving into place, punch list work is getting underway, and city and state inspections are being

scheduled. Employee training is well underway, too. Most all hospital employees have visited their new work spaces for department-specific and general hospital orientation, and specific medical equipment training will follow soon.

MAY 30, 2019

Coastal tremors could be precursor for the ‘big one,’ Have you felt them? During the month of May, a small rupture of tremors have been recorded along the Pacific Northwest Coast, most notably the 3.4 magnitude quake near Rose Lodge and Otis. The small earthquakes have put scientists and geologists on notice, including Portland State University geology professor Scott Burns, whose family has owned a house in Gleneden Beach since 1971. “I am always interested in earthquakes along the coast,” Burns said. “Everyone should know about them.” Burns and many other scientists feel these tremors could be a precursor to the ‘big one,’ a 9.0 magnitude quake due to hit the Pacific Coastline. The tiny earthquakes happen while tectonic plates slowly slip past each other. Most of the time they are too small for people to feel. “This is what we call a slow slip type of movement,” Burns said. “The Juan De Fuca Plate is moving underneath us and then all of the sudden, about every 14 months, it stops and it goes in a westerly direction. “As it does that, it creates a lot of tremors. So we are in this slow slip type of movement right now and that’s why we’re getting a lot of tremors up in Washington, Northern California and then some here in Oregon.”

Four LC residents arrested after narcotics, theft investigation MAX KIRKENDALL

The Lincoln City Police Street Crimes Response Team (SCRT) arrested four Lincoln City residents suspected of buying and selling illegal narcotics and stolen property. On Dec. 12, SCRT executed a residential search warrant at 1147 SW 16th Street in Lincoln City. During the warrant execution the SCRT seized quantities of suspected heroin and methamphetamine. Investigators also found and seized narcotics paraphernalia, prescription grade narcotics, a firearm and 230 children’s toys worth nearly $4,600, which are alleged to be stolen from a local Lincoln City business. At the residence, Stephen Harbin, 38, Mary Jordan Chadwick, 29, Jeremy Michael Brown, 39 and Mitchell Lee Towery, 37 were arrested after many months of the LCPD compiling evidence regarding their involvement in buying and selling illegal narcotics and stolen property.

Newport Police drug detection K9 Nero also assisted with this investigation. The Lincoln City Police Department encourages citizens to report any suspicious activity they witness, as it may assist law enforcement. The LCPD Drug Tip Line is available at 541-994-9800.

Games From page A1

puter games in moderation, the research generally indicates that little, if any, harm comes from this. However, there are some children who play excessively, who refuse to do anything else, and who make gaming the number one priority in their lives. They spend hours and hours gaming and seem concerned or entertained by little else. These children may be addicted to computer games and their parents are right to be worried about this problem (Please see TechAddiction’s summary article, “Child Video Game Addiction - Facts and Solutions).

45 whales wash ashore along the western coastline, two near LC So far this year, 45 whales have washed up along the western coastline and one of the latest currently resides in Bella Beach near Lincoln City. The whale was discovered to be a subadult female gray whale, which had been dead and floating for several days before coming ashore in a moderate state of decomposition, according to Oregon Marine Mammal Stranding Coordinator Jim Rice. “The whale carcass currently at Bella Beach originally came ashore last Thursday (April 25) on the Salishan spit, at which point I examined and collected tissue samples from it,” Rice said.

January 1, 2020

Many residents noticed the whale out in the water, but were unsure of what it actually was until it reached the shore. The confusion came from the lack of bodily structure, leading Rice to conclude a possible cause of death. “There were several recent traumatic wounds on the body indicating that it had been attacked by killer whales,” Rice said. Another whale recently washed up in a remote cove just north of Lincoln City. Many believed the whale to still be alive when it beached on the rocks, but by the time Rice and his crew arrived it was no longer breathing.

Saying this is a historic year for Taft soccer may be somewhat of an understatement. “I can’t say it enough about how proud I am of these boys,” head coach Ryan Ulicni said. “They have truly shown what a team can become and what they can accomplish when you put in the effort, believe in yourself and never give up.” Taft’s round one win over Central Linn put them in a second round game against Riverdale Saturday, Nov. 9, whom they beat in a 2-1 victory in front of their

home crowd. It set Taft up with a semifinal matchup with unbeaten Catlin Gabel on Nov. 12, marking the Tigers furthest trip in the playoffs, according to Ulicni.
