For administrators at Taft High 7-12, hiring an outside consultant to improve its math program was like performing simple arithmetic: Adding a nationally recognized math instructor would help divide the problem into parts, thereby multiplying its ability to educate without subtracting attention from the system already in place. In other words, not only would it assist students on how to learn math, but teachers on how to teach it. Go figure. “The big picture is that Taft Elementary, Oceanlake and Taft 7-12 are in the beginning stages of developing a K-12 math plan for our area,” Taft High Principal Majalise Tolan said. “It is important students have a strong handle on their basic math facts by fifth grade so that they can begin processing higher-level math concepts.” Enter Lori Cook, professional development assistant for the Leadership Center at Houghton, Mifflin, Harcourt, an educational services company.

Watershed council backs Schooner Creek land deal JEREMY C. RUARK jruark@countrymedia.net

The Salmon Drift Creek Watershed Council is supporting the purchase in early December of 148 acres at Schooner Creek by the City of Lincoln City for $585,000. The area is primary timberland and could be harvested by the City. But City Manager David Hawker said the purchase was meant to ensure the preservation and protection of the area’s watershed. “The primary objective is not to harvest trees, it is to manage water quality,” said Hawker. (Read Hawkers full memo to the Council about the land deal at thenewsguard.com.) “It makes sense for the City of Lincoln City to invest in its municipal drink-

mined that the subject parcel lies within a reach of Schooner Creek that contains the best salmon habitat — specifically Coho and steelhead habitat — in the watershed. “We believe that the City will work to continue to protect this area,” said Pruett. There are also active nesting sites for Marbled Murrelet, a federally listed bird species, within proximity to, but not on, the County parcel boundary. According to Pruett, proper management on parcels near nesting sites is imperative to help maintain safe and appropriate habitat for these threatened species. The City can ensure such management, said Pruett. The Salmon Drift Creek

The DEQ said for every dollar invested in forest and watershed protection, utilities save an average of up to $200 in treatment and filtration costs. “The Bull Run watershed is a good example,” said Pruett. “It is co-owned and co-managed the City of Portland and the U.S. Forest Service. DEQ estimated that $200 million in associated costs have been avoided, due to a combination of proper management, effective partnerships and protective legislation.” The Salmon Drift Creek Watershed Council recently completed a habitat assessment in the Schooner Creek watershed.

Community shows support for homeless children Shortly before Christmas, approximately 200 homeless children and parents attended holiday parties at three Lincoln County School District HELP Centers — in Lincoln City, Newport, and Toledo. Families in South County received Christmas support through Seashore Family Literacy in Waldport.

The HELP Center events included children making Christmas ornaments, festive food, a stocking stuffer station, and families receiving gift cards, blankets, coats, pajamas and other practical items. Families also were able to have their family portrait taken, and Santa and Mrs. Claus came to share in the holiday

cheer. HELP Coordinator Katey Townsend said the parties helped families who were struggling this year to provide a memorable Christmas for their children. This was made possible with the help of 42 volunteers and a large number of contributions from local businesses, groups and individuals.

Slide, sinking still an issue at 48th Place City officials are continuing to keep a close eye on a section of S.E. 48th Place after the roadway sank in January 2013. A slide along S.E. 48th Place, just east of S.E. Jetty Avenue, forced the City to close a portion of the roadway and it has been closed since the slide and sinking incident. According to Stephanie Reid, Lincoln City city engineer, the impacts from the slide were: • Pavement settled • Curb and sidewalk separated from asphalt and settled • A portion of the sanitary sewer line formed a “belly” or “sag” • A section of the water transmission main, which was left in place during when the road was first constructed, deflected. “But we determined that no homes or businesses are or were at risk in the slide area,” she said. In January, immediately after the slide occurred, the City hired a contractor to make emergency repairs by collecting storm water appearing from the north side of the road and diverting the flow in a pipe across the road. The City also hired a surveyor to install and read monitoring points along the road to determine if ground movement was still occurring. The last measurement was on Feb 23, 2013, and indicated that the ground movement, for the time being, had stopped. The City also hired Geotechnical Resources, Inc. (GRI) to conduct a

preliminary investigation of the ground movement. GRI said that the drainage improvements made should improve the stability of the roadway; however, it should be anticipated that the roadway and water main could experience additional abrupt movements following heavy rainfall. “The City decided the water transmission main in the slide area should be relocated as we know the pipeline was deflected and had been damaged from the slide,” Reid said. The plans for relocating the main were developed and bid. The successful contractor was Devils Lake Rock, bidding the project for $66,220. The work began in mid-October 2013 and was completed in December. A letter was sent to surrounding neighbors and door hangers were placed advising residents that water service in the area would be temporarily disrupted for a few hours on Dec. 4 while city crews connected the new water line to the existing line. The City provided affected homes with temporary water service and portable toilets during the process. Reid said to date, the emergency repair have cost $13,032,91. The survey monitoring was $1,795. The cost to realign the water line was engineering $6,500 and construction is bid at $66,220. The cost has been funded from the City’s street and water capital funds. “We don’t know exactly what the long-term fix will include,” Reid said. “Once

Install inclinometer casings in the boreholes to evaluate depth of failure/movement and piezometers to monitor groundwater levels. • Slope stability analyses to optimize the design of the repair option • Preparation of report summarizing results of the investigation with design and construction criteria for the recommended repair option. Reid said the City is also keeping a watch on other streets with similar land issues. “Underground seeps and springs are prevalent

throughout Lincoln City,” Reid said. “We so have some streets that are showing signs of movement, but nothing to this degree.”

House fire in Cutler City North Lincoln Fire & Rescue District #1 responded to and extinguished a house fire in Cutler City on Thursday, Dec. 26, that apparently started in the flue of a wood stove. The fire, which started at approximately 8:45 p.m. at 1027 S.W. 62nd St., at the south end of Lincoln City. Firefighters discovered flame and smoke in the attic

area above the living room. Firefighters discovered that the flue was heavily choked with creosote, which burns very hot and charred the area around the flue as it went up through the living room ceiling. The attic floor around the flue had been heated and cooled countless times over the years clearly showing a

charring pattern in the wood. As the residents fired up the wood stove this evening the floor of the attic eventually grew so hot the floor ignited. Firefighters say wood and pellet stove flues should be checked annually for creosote buildup, which can create hot spots along the length of the flue and ignite materials around them.

Gomberg appointed to Governor’s Commission on Senior Services State Rep. David Gomberg (D-Otis) has been appointed to the Governor’s Commission on Senior Services by House Speaker Tina Kotek. The commission is an advisory body of public citizens and legislators dedicated to enhancing and protecting the quality of life for older Oregonians. Gomberg will hold the commission seat reserved for a member of the House of Representatives. Gomberg said it is an honor to serve on the commission. He called seniors the backbone of Oregon’s coastal communities, but

said they face unique needs and challenges. “Twenty-two percent of the population in District 10 is 65 years and older, compared to 14 percent across the state of Oregon,” he said. “My predecessor, Jean Cowan, did great work for seniors, and I want to continue her legacy of standing up for independence, dignity, and quality services for our elder neighbors.” Kotek called Gomberg one of the Oregon Legislature’s strongest champions for Oregon seniors. “As a member of the committee, I know he will

continue his advocacy, working to ensure a high quality of life for older Oregonians,” Kotek said. The Governor’s Commission on Senior Services is an official state commission comprised of volunteers appointed by the Governor and two legislators, one from the House and one from the Senate. Through cooperation with other organizations and advocacy, the Commission works to ensure that seniors have access to services that provide choice, independence and dignity.

State’s minimum wage increase examined As Oregon prepares to see its minimum wage increase in the new year, the Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) has issued the following five things to know about the state’s minimum wage, which increases to $9.10 beginning today, Jan. 1. 1) Nearly 100,000 Oregon workers will see wage increases starting today. Oregon’s minimum wage will increase from $8.95 to $9.10 for 98,000 minimum wage employees. 2) The 2014 increase for Oregon’s minimum wage will boost consumer purchasing power and is

expected to generate more than $20 million in new economic activity for the state. The minimum wage adjustment will mean that directly-affected employees working 30 hours a week will have $234 more to spend on goods in 2014. 3) Oregon’s minimum wage is tied to inflation to help employees keep pace with the rising cost of goods and services. In 2002, Oregon voters passed an indexed minimum wage that increases based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI), a figure published by the United States Bureau of Labor

Statistics to track prices for a fixed market basket of goods. 4) Most minimum wage workers are at least 20 years old. According to the Economic Policy Institute, roughly 80 percent of all minimum wage workers living in states with an indexed minimum wage last year were at least 20 years old. In addition, about two thirds of all workers across the country earning a minimum wage or less are women, according to the National Women’s Law Center. 5) Employers can download 2014 minimum wage

Committee to narrow superintendent choices JIM FOSSUM sports@thenewsguard.com

Nineteen people named at a special Dec. 16 board meeting will form the search screening committee that will determine Tom Rinearson’s replacement as superintendent of Lincoln County schools. Three administrators, three licensed staff (teachers), three classified staff (support staff), four parents (one from each of the four geographic areas of the district), four community members and two charterschool representatives were named. Beginning in early February, the screening committee will be trained by consultant Greg McKenzie

of Window to Leadership, LLC, based in West Linn. In November, the search consultant prepared literature and forms concerning the opening, which are now posted online at the LCSD website. Go to www.lincoln. k12.or.us to Employment to Superintendent Vacancy. The application period opened on Dec. 13 and closes on Jan. 31. The committee and school board will screen applicants during executive session. Interview candidates will be selected by Feb. 10. Initial interviews are tentatively planned for Feb. 20-22. The search for a superintendent was launched Sept. 10 during the LCSD Board of Directors meeting at Ocean-

lake Elementary School in Lincoln City. The board declared a vacancy for the position and approved a search contract with McKenzie. McKenzie is an education consultant used by the board to find Rinearson in 2004. Rinearson announced his retirement in June. McKenzie presented a comparison from other school districts to the board concerning the pay range. Rinearson’s base annual salary was $140,000. The board hopes to begin screening applications Feb 5, with candidate interviews and finalist selections in mid- to late February. The superintendent is expected to be selected in early March.

Cigarette tax increase begins The Oregon Department of Revenue reminds smokers that cigarette tax will increase beginning today, Jan. 1. Legislation enacted in the special legislative session this fall increases the state tax on a standard, 20-count pack of cigarettes by 13 cents: from $1.18 to $1.31. “Ordinarily, the consumer pays the tax as a part of the price when purchasing cigarettes from an Oregon retailer,” Chris Wytoski, manager of Oregon’s tobacco tax program, said. “Consumers must remember that they are responsible for filing and paying the tax on cigarettes purchased online or otherwise brought in from outside the state,” Oregon’s annual tobacco tax revenue, from cigarettes and other tobacco products, is about $250 million. The revenue supports the Oregon Health Plan, the

state General Fund, and the Tobacco Use Reduction Account. Portions of cigarette tax revenue are also specifically dedicated to cities, counties, and public transit and, with recent legislation, mental health programs. “We’ve been working with retailers and distributors to ensure the appropriate tax is paid on their inventory on January 1,” Wytoski said. “Retailers who haven’t seen our information about the special onetime tax return they need to file should contact us right away.” Additional information for consumers, retailers, and distributors is available at www.oregon. gov/dor/tobacco. Consumers can obtain the form they need from the “consumer reporting” link at www.oregon.gov/ dor/tobacco or by calling 503-378-4988 or 1-800356-4222.

• The lack of a fence barrier to protect the dog from outside dangers raises the risk of dog bites, makes dogs vulnerable to unwanted breeding and attack by other dogs or animals because a chained dog cannot defend himself or herself; • Continuous chaining is inhumane and unsafe for dogs. Dogs are, by nature, social beings that thrive on interaction with people and other animals. A dog kept chained in one spot for months or even years suffers immense psychological damage. A continuously chained dog usually becomes neurotic, anxious and aggressive, sometimes barking excessively; • In some cases, the necks of chained dogs become raw and infected from poorly fitting collars; • Dog tethers can easily become entangled with other objects, preventing the dog from reaching food, shelter or water and even choking or strangling the dogs; • Chained dogs can become

a target for other animals and people intending to do harm; • Because they are vulnerable, fearful, and cannot escape, their natural instinct is to become highly territorial and aggressive. This can present a significant risk of injury to the public through dog bites and attacks. Since there is no physical barrier between a dog and a child or other community member, tethered dogs can pose a risk to neighbors or passersby (frequently children). According to a scientific study in Pediatrics chained dogs are 2.8 times more likely to bite, but for victims under 12, that number rises to 5.4. Gone are the days of having a dog chained in the yard all day and night. The happiest and healthiest dogs have a fence for a border. Please have a safe New Year.

Neskowin Valley School gets learning grant Governor to discuss Christmas came a little early this year for the students at Neskowin Valley School thanks, in part, to the Wheeler Foundation, which has funded a grant to bring new computer tablets, notebooks and other technology supplies to the classrooms. “We are so grateful to the Wheeler Foundation,” said Chris Schau, head of school. “We reached out to the Foundation last year when we started our Ocean Sciences program. We wanted the technology to enhance research studies in the classroom.” The notebooks arrived last month during the students’ study of space and the planets. The teachers downloaded an application that allowed students to hold the tablets toward the sky and see the position and names of the constellations right above them. “You should have seen the amazement on their faces,” said Schau. “It opened up a whole new way of learning and understanding the space around them and sky above them.” As part of the technology package, each tablet was outfitted with a Leapfrog headset to allow children to work independently at their own pace. In some cases, being able

to listen to a story problem along with reading it will offer a child a better understanding, Schau said. “There are so many ways to use technology in the classroom to augment inquiry-based learning and problem-solving skills,” said Schau. Tablets and headphones will reside primarily with the kindergarten through second grade class; third through fifth grade students have laptops in their room. Teachers agree that the technology is opening new doors to learning. “The children in my class are already benefiting,” said Jennifer McDaniel, kindergarten through second grade teacher. “I see the students mentoring each other and collaborating. And the tablets are allowing them to develop their fine motor skills through trace letters and moving objects on the screen.” Through additional support from a private donor, the school was able to upgrade the office systems and provide each teacher with a laptop computer. Neskowin Valley School is a preschool through fifth grade accredited, independent school founded COURTESY PHOTO in South Tillamook County This student at Neskowin Valley School is one of several using in 1972. new technology to help in their education.

federal forest management Gov. John Kitzhaber will address the Board of Forestry about his vision for federal forestland management in Oregon when the panel meets Jan. 8 in Salem. A board subcommittee has developed an action plan intended to serve as a roadmap for federal forest reform, with the aim of increasing the pace and scale of restoration and management across Oregon’s national forests. The full board will consider the plan, which describes a suite of actions

including work with the governor, Oregon’s congressional delegation, the state legislature and others, at the Jan. 8 meeting. The Board of Forestry meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. in the Tillamook Room - Administration Building (C), at ODF headquarters, 2600 State St., in Salem. The agenda includes a public comment period shortly after 9 a.m. on general topics. Public comment on specific agenda items will be received as the board takes them up during the day.

LCSD teachers earn national certification Two Lincoln County School District (LCSD) teachers — Erinne Irish, kindergarten teacher at Toledo Elementary School, and Tami Johnson, reading teacher at Siletz Valley Charter School — have been certified by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. During the last two school years, the school district has given extra support to teachers going through what administrators called a rigorous, time-consuming and costly certification process. Nine LCSD teachers attained national board certification last November. With the two newly certified teachers this year, the district has 14 board certified educators.

“This journey has been rewarding,” Johnson said. “My strengths and areas in which I need growth were made transparent, sometimes uncomfortably so. It forced me to not only look at what I could do differently, but the efficacy of my decisions that ultimately affect my students.” “The experience was a challenging, reflective, and enlightening journey that has taught me a lot about my own teaching style, as well as the learning styles of all types of student,” said Irish. “I will work hard every day to ensure I am advancing student learning and achievement by establishing high standards for all, taught in differentiated methods.” Every 10 years, national

board certified teachers are required to renew by submitting an extensive “profile of professional growth.” Teacher Kristin Becker, who is working this year as collaboration grant coordinator for the District, was recently renewed, confirming her accomplishments as an educator. LCSD Superintendent Tom Rinearson said the District set a goal of having quality teachers in every classroom so all students have the opportunity to learn at a high level. “I am extremely proud that these teachers accepted the challenge to become nationally board certified,” he said. “Their professional growth is making an impact throughout the district, with their students and col-

leagues.” Certification candidates must demonstrate their teaching practice by submitting four portfolio entries. Candidates also must demonstrate content knowledge in response to six 30-minute exercises developed for their chosen area. Once a teacher applies for National Board Certification and submits all eligibility forms, he or she is given up to three years to complete the process. A large percentage of candidates — 66 percent — do not achieve certification on the first try. This was the second try for both Irish and Johnson, which administrators said attests to their commitment to the process.

Election results in for educational board positions Four new members have been elected to the Oregon School Boards Association’s Board of Directors, and six members were re-elected during regular voting that closed Dec. 20. In addition, 14 members were elected to serve on the Legislative Policy Committee (LPC), which helps establish the organization’s legislative priorities. All will begin their terms Jan. 1. Newly elected to the OSBA Board are Steven Lowell (Klamath County SD, Southeast region), Betty Reynolds (West LinnWilsonville SD, Clackamas region), LeeAnn Larsen (Beaverton SD, Washington region) and Maureen Wolf (Tigard-Tualatin SD, Washington region). Also, Mike Cosgrove (John Day SD) was appointed to fill an

open Eastern region seat at the November OSBA Board meeting. Returning to the OSBA Board are Dave Krumbein (Pendleton SD, Columbia region), Sherry Duerst-Higgins (South Lane SD and Lane ESD, Lane region), Anne Schuster (Corvallis SD, Linn/Benton/Lincoln region), David Beeson (Silver Falls SD, Marion region), Greg Kintz (Vernonia SD, North Coast region) and Kris Howatt (GreshamBarlow SD, Multnomah region). Elected to the LPC were Eric Nerdin (North Wasco SD, Columbia), Cheri Helt (Bend-La Pine SD, Central), Jill O’Donnell (Klamath County SD, Southeast), Kathy Thompson (Creswell SD, Lane), Liz Cruthers (Molalla River SD, Clacka-

mas), Liz Hartman (Lake Oswego SD, Clackamas), Jackie Crook (South Coast ESD, Douglas/South Coast), David Dowrie (Linn Benton Lincoln ESD, Linn/Benton/ Lincoln), Nancy MacMorris-Adix (Salem-Keizer SD, Marion), Jill Zurschmeide (Tigard-Tualatin SD, Washington), Fred Marble (Forest Grove SD, Washington), Bruce McCain (Reynolds SD, Multnomah) and Kent Zook (Gresham-Barlow SD, Multnomah). A runoff election will be required in the Multnomah region between LPC candidates Francisco Acosta Jr. (Multnomah ESD) and Mary Lu Baetkey (Parkrose SD), who tied in the voting. In addition, Marina Piacentini (Phoenix-Talent) was appointed to the Southern region’s LPC spot by the

OSBA Board in November. “It’s encouraging to see such a strong group join OSBA’s Board and our LPC,” said Betsy Miller-Jones, OSBA’s executive director. “I’m looking forward to continuing the momentum our board and LPC members built in 2013 toward closing the achievement gap and increasing investment in public education in Oregon.” OSBA is a member services agency for more than 200 locally elected boards serving school districts, education service districts and community colleges. It also provides services to charter schools and their boards.

Unemployment rate remains unchanged Lincoln County’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 7.7 percent in November, essentially unchanged from the previous month (8 percent), but down from the year before (8.8 percent). The unemployment rate for Lincoln County was close to the statewide rate (7.3 percent), but higher than the national rate (7 percent.). Lincoln County’s unemployment rate ranked as the 16th lowest of Oregon’s 36 counties in November. The rate was stuck above 10 percent for nearly all of 2009, 2010 and 2011. It has declined slowly, but fairly steadily since then. Seasonally adjusted nonfarm payroll employment rose by 190 jobs in November to 17,760. Seasonally adjusted figures compare expected changes with actual changes. A loss of 280 jobs is normal for the month, but the number of jobs in the county fell by only 90.

Oregon experiences no Christmas traffic fatalities

“During our time together, we focused on the mathematical practices, collaborative learning and problemsolving structures that will help the teachers create an environment where the students are actively engaged in mathematics,” Cook said. “It was great to see North-area staff collaborating to develop a common understanding of the mathematical practices and problem solving,” Tolan said. “We have a dynamic group of educators and giving them the chance to work together is important.” While Lincoln County School District Superintendent Tom Rinearson said last fall he was encouraged by the results of newly designed and compiled school report cards for 2012-13 released by the Oregon Department of Education, he cited math at Taft and throughout the District as an area that could use more work. The initial process for kindergarten through fifthgrade teachers was planned on math facts development, while sixth- to 12th-grade teachers focused on specific steps to increase math problem-solving and argumentative writing when making mathematical claims. “All three schools were

people died in three fatal traffic crashes and troopers reported 53 DUII arrests. OSP, sheriff’s departments and city police agencies in Oregon and around the nation are continuing stepped up DUII enforcement as part of the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign through January 1, 2014. As we approach the end of another year and the New Year’s holiday, remember that last year’s was one of the deadliest on record since 1970 as 12 fatalities were reported, including nine deaths in the fatal December 30th tour bus crash east of Pendleton. Officials urge everyone to continue to be committed to keeping highways safer for all travel-

committed to bridging the mathematical gap and seeing long-term gains for our students,” Tolan said. The Five Steps to Balanced Math Program developed by Jan Christensen is a math instruction framework that has been implemented in schools across the country since 2006. For the last three years, some Lincoln City teachers have participated in seminars and/or book studies on the Five Steps to Balanced Math: Math Review, Math Facts, Conceptual Understanding, Problem Solving, and Formative Assessments. Taft 7-12, Toledo Jr./Sr. High School and Oceanlake and Taft Elementary sixthgrade teachers took part in one-day training on collaborative learning strategies and Poster Method problem solving. The Taft 7-12 teachers also are expected to receive follow-up training and any requested instructional support from Cook later this spring. Had an unexpected record December snowfall not hit, all Lincoln County kindergarten through sixthgrade teachers also would have participated in an initial training in the Math Facts component of the framework. “We worked with teachers from Toledo Jr./Sr. High, Taft 7-12 and Lincoln City sixth-grade to begin

developing a common understanding of mathematical practices, collaborative learning strategies and problem solving,” Tolan said. Teachers found the seminars added up to a worthwhile experience. “It was a good training,” seventh- and eighth-grade Taft High math teacher Scott Henderson said. “She gave us some great ideas I can use and I look forward to using them in my classroom with the students. Giving them real-life math and problem solving to do will be good for my students.” “It provided strategies to structure cooperative learning during math so that all students are engaged, and so all math abilities benefit from the activities,” Taft Elementary sixth-grade teacher Kara Allan said. Allan said the training also helped clarify for her what a true problem-solving task should look like so that the tasks better represent the ways students will need to be able to apply math in the “real world.” “Finally, the training also suggested strategies to help scaffold problemsolving activities so that students have the support they need to persevere through a difficult problem without relying on the teacher to direct each step,” she said.

In September 2013, in partnership with Hancock Timber Resource Group, the Council replaced an undersized and undercut culvert on a tributary to Schooner

ers with these simple but important safety tips: • Have designated drivers. Plan to have sober drivers at your party who can help get folks home safely. Volunteer to be a sober driver at someone else’s party; • Plan to stay overnight. Make pre-arrangements to stay overnight at your friend’s home or in a hotel room where you won’t have to drive if you have been drinking; • Monitor car keys. Collect your guests’ car keys at the beginning of your event. Then, talk with your guests before they leave about the best transportation options for them; • Be ready with a cab

fare fund. Having available cash to pay cab fare for your guests if they need it reduces the stress on you. If you can’t afford to pay for it yourself, ask your guests to pitch in a few bucks on your invitation. And keep phone numbers handy; • Be responsible. If you are hosting a party, offer plenty of non-alcoholic beverages and help your guests be responsible. Don’t let someone who has been drinking get behind the wheel; • Walking or bicycling after dark? Wear bright clothes to help you stand out; • Buckle up, every trip, every time. • Drive defensively at all times;

• Show zero tolerance for impaired driving. Report impaired drivers by calling 9-1-1 or OSP at 1-800-24DRUNK (1-800243-7865). OSP and ODOT also urge travelers to “Know Before You Go,” monitoring media reports for weather forecasts and keeping up-to-date on road conditions at www. TripCheck.com. In addition to road and weather conditions, winter driving safety information and tips are also there to help keep you informed and safe on our roads. More information and safety reminders about the upcoming New Year’s holiday will be released in the coming days.

Fire chiefs support volunteers’ Obamacare exemption Unintended consequences in implementation of the Affordable Care Act, set to begin on Jan. 1 might have serious consequences for Oregon’s fire service. Provisions in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) would require volunteer fire fighters and emergency medical technicians working 30 hours per week to be considered full-time employees, thus forcing a fire district, city or department to provide health insurance or pay a fine if they are large enough. In the U.S., over 75 percent of individuals are protected by a volunteer fire department or firefighters. In Oregon, nearly two-thirds of Oregon’s fire departments are classified as all volunteer or mostly volunteer. Most agencies do not have the financial resources to provide health insurance to their volunteers and the impact of this mandate in the ACA could potentially reduce the overall number of volunteers and level of fire

and emergency medical protection in a given community. HR 3685/S 1798 has been introduced by Congressman Lou Barletta (R-Pa.) and Senators Mark Warner (D-Va.) and Joe Manchin (C-W.V.) to exempt fire departments from the requirement to offer health insurance to their volunteer firefighters and emergency medical personnel. Congressman Greg Walden (R-Or.) has now added his name as a co-sponsor to this important legislation. “Volunteers are a key and critical part of fire and emergency medical protection for not just Oregonians but communities across the nation. It is important that communities who are protected by volunteers remain able to keep a volunteer force intact without undue financial burdens including the unintended health insurance consequences of the Affordable Care Act,” commented OFCA member and Marion County Fire Chief Kevin Henson,

Chair of the OFCA Volunteer 360 Task Force. “The definition of volunteer should not be arbitrary, leaving fire departments with an unknown potential liability and potential reduced ability to protect and serve their community. We support legislation that provides a mechanism for nominal compensation of volunteers without creating unintended consequences with PERS and the IRS,” said Henson. The Oregon Fire Chiefs Association thanks Congressman Walden and his colleagues for their work and supports HR 3685/S 1798 and urges passage of this important bi-partisan legislation to exempt fire departments from this unintended negative consequence of the Affordable Care Act.

WE CAN CONNECT YOU Creek. • Road decommissioning: Old logging roads also have the potential to lead to unfavorable water quality conditions by allowing for the transport of excessive sediment. This summer, the Council will be working with the U.S. Forest Service and Hancock Timber Resource Group to “store” Forest Service Road 1783. This will entail closing the road to all vehicular traffic and treating areas on the road that have the potential to negatively impact water quality.

30-hour reporting period in 1996. The deadliest Christmas holiday period occurred 30 years ago (1983) when 10 people were killed in traffic crashes. Oregon State Police (OSP), Oregon State Sheriffs’ Association, Oregon Association Chiefs of Police, and ODOT thanks all drivers who showed zero tolerance for impaired driving by either ensuring a sober driver was operating their vehicle or reporting possible impaired drivers.

Tragically, a confirmed fatality did occur Tuesday, Dec. 24, at approximately 2:45 p.m. in Multnomah County, but it happened before the start of the reporting period.

Tigers fall on road to Sweet Home Girls Basketball JIM FOSSUM sports@thenewsguard.com

Taft High’s girls basketball team lost a nonconference winter-break game to Sweet Home 44-30 Friday, Dec. 27, despite 12 points from senior Taylor Adams. “Going into the game, I felt pretty good about our chances of playing a competitive game and coming away with a win,” Taft coach Dan Mock said. “The last two times we have played the Huskies, we lost by three points each time. We had a decent week of practice, and I felt our experience at the Amity tournament would have helped us heading into this game.” Mock said he was encouraged by several aspects of the Tigers’ play. “Our energy level was good, we didn’t turn the ball over at a high clip, and we were able to run our offense well enough,” he said. “In the end, Sweet Home did a better job of getting the basketball to the spots they wanted, and shot the ball better than we did; we had plenty of open looks, but didn’t convert. “ Taft plays three games at home this week. It started Monday against Molalla (past deadline), Reedsport at 6 p.m. Thursday and Colton at 6 p.m. Friday. “I expect all three games to be fun and competitive,” Mock said. “Hopefully, we can get back on track and get some victories on our home court.”

Two Tigers take fourth Wrestling JIM FOSSUM sports@thenewsguard.com

Taft High’s Seth Steere at 170 pounds and Michael Parker at 182 placed fourth to lead the Tigers at a meet Saturday, Dec. 28, at Myrtle Point. Taft brought nine wrestlers to the tournament, which featured 16 schools ranging from the Class 1A/2A to the 6A junior varsity level. “I was pleased for the broad talent range of wrestlers,” Taft coach Luke Hall said. “Our veterans were given some very strong tests, which I think will be good in the long run, and our younger guys had some matches that let them stick around for a bit and figure things out a bit more.” Also competing were Cameron Poulin at 106, Zach Bayne at 132, Joe Salsbery at 138, Chrishtian Stockton at 140, William Irvin at 152, Kevin Kovachevich at 170 and Nakoma Newman at 220. “This was a much more difficult tournament than I anticipated, and I don’t think that’s a bad thing,” Hall said. “Our guys need to be reminded every now and then just how far it is that they need to go to be competing for state-level trophies. For the young guys, it’s all about mat time at this point and they all got at least two matches.” Taft travels to Sweet Home for its first league dual meet on Thursday, Jan. 9, and will compete Saturday, Jan 11, in the Alsea Bay Classic in Waldport.

Evolution since Keiko The Passage of the Deep is a main attraction at the Oregon Coast Aquarium, which previously sheltered the orca Keiko of Free Willy fame. More than 1.2 million people visited Keiko in one year.

JEREMY C. RUARK jruark@countrymedia.net

In 1996, The Oregon Coast Aquarium brought Keiko, a male orca, to a specially built, $7 million facility to help return the whale to health and release him to the wild. Since Keiko left the Oregon Coast Aquarium in the late 1990s, it has continued its mission as a leading marine science education facility that attracts thousands of visitors to the Oregon Coast. The News Guard spoke with Carrie Lewis, president and CEO of the Oregon Coast Aquarium about the evolution of the facility since Keiko’s departure. JEREMY C. RUARK/THE NEWS GUARD

The Oregon Coast Aquarium offers visitors a number of interactive exhibits.

Jingle Bell Jog

Lincoln City residents donned reindeer antlers, elf shoes and Santa suits and joined family and friends Saturday, Dec. 21, for the second annual 5K Jingle Bell Jog/Walk, hosted by the Lincoln City Parks & Recreation Department. The event was open to runners, joggers, walkers, baby strollers and pets. Costumes were recommended but optional, and bells were provided. The out-and-back course traversed the paved “Head to Bay” sidewalk/trail along N.E. 22nd Street and West Devils Lake Road.

News Guard: Since the departure of Keiko, how has

The Oregon Coast Aquarium • 2820 S.E. Ferry Slip Road Newport • 541-867-3474 the Aquarium evolved into an attraction to bring people to the Oregon Coast? Lewis: The most noticeable change since Keiko departed for Iceland in 1998 was the transformation of his exhibit into the iconic Passages of the Deep exhibit gallery, which immerses visitors in

an underwater journey from Oregon rocky cold-water reefs that line much of the Coast out to the pelagic deep blue water of the open sea. The Aquarium continues to fulfill the same vision it has always had, to provide one of the best living marine science education experiences in the United States. The Aquarium was honored to be part of Keiko’s rehabilitation while he was here, and he advanced that mission in a unique way. Once the Free Willy Keiko Foundation that owned him moved him, we continued on with our original goals of educating and informing the public about our coastal marine environment.

Civic Meetings Calendar

Who said, ‘Goats will eat anything?’ When you have acreage and live in the country, folks assume you are a refuge for unwanted animals. Friends — people whose names you barely remember hearing before, or distant relatives of co-workers, former neighbors, or maybe even someone unknown just passing by who desperately needs to find a home for a sweet loveable fourlegged creature that “Honestly, will be no problem whatsoever,” plead with you to take this sweet doe-eyed beast off their hands. That is how we got “Blackie” and “Whitey” – two Nubian goats. The pair belonged to a family at church. As their children matured and left home, they no longer wanted to care for the goats. My young children, Tina and Kurtis, named the goats for their most obvious attributes, their coat colors. Try to understand, for indoor pets we had two goldfish named “Goldie” and “Ugh.” “Blackie” and “Whitey” were a step up for us in the name department. My husband and I knew nothing about goats except the sitter our children went to raised them and drank their milk. We had no interest in goat’s milk. However, about an acre of our land was covered in blackberries. Knowing goats will eat “anything” we thought we could put them to work clearing out the berry vines and giving us more access to our stream. We would stake the goats down in the berry patch every day, where they could drink from the fresh stream water and bring them up to the pen in the evening. Every morning before my husband left for work, he led the goats down to the stream and staked them out. Every morning, about 90 minutes later, when I returned from dropping the children off at the bus stop, the goats were grazing on the front lawn. No matter what method he used for restraining them, the two wise and cunning creatures were able to free themselves. They ate the blueberry bushes we planted around our front deck to provide fruit and be a part of our ornamental landscaping, also the pomegranate bushes I had longed for and nurtured to maturity. They devoured the bark off our young apricot tree. The pair of ravenous goats ate bald spots into our lawns front and back. Our blackberry patch, however, continued to spread. We decided to give our septic system a respite and feed them food scraps. They picked through the pile very selectively choosing only what pleased their palates — nothing overripe from the vegetable crisper, no orange or banana peels, never an egg shell or watermelon rind. The things their little black noses snubbed we had to go back into their pen and shovel out. Our vet told us the goats must have hay every day — no problem — our horses would share. But, they also must have grains — something on the order of Purina Goat Chow — who even knew there was such a product? The vet also warned it was critical our goats have clean water. Other animals will drink cloudy dirty water — not goats. To make sure you change their water frequently, they walk in it, jump in it if it is off the ground, and dirty it several times a day. Definitely, life before goats was a boring existence. It appeared to Tina and I right away, and eventually my husband conceded, our goats were male chauvinists, although they were female goats. They hated women. Tina and I could not approach without them butting at us, often with enough force to knock us off our feet. The males in our family were never treated so roughly. If my husband called them, they came. If I called them, I braced myself to be blindsided by a head butt. If Tina was riding her bicycle around the property when they were staked out, they would stretch their chains across her path in an attempt to sweep her wheels out from under her and send her flying over the handle bars. Kurtis could ride around carefree all day. I learned a few things being a goat owner: 1. Goats are discriminating and do not like just anyone. 2. There is such a thing as goat chow, also monkey chow and lots of other chows. 3. Goats are finicky and will not eat just anything. 4. Sometimes it is a good idea to look a gift goat in the mouth and just say “No!” Karen R. Hessen is a retired mail carrier that lives in Seaside and Forest Grove.

Aquarium From page B1

NG: What are the main features, attractions, events that are now in place designed to bring people to the Aquarium? Lewis: The main attraction at the Aquarium is certainly the animals and replicating their natural habitat. We are proud to be one of the nation’s Top Ten Aquariums and we do that by offering outstanding exhibits in a natural setting and providing programs that educate and entertain. NG: What and when was the peak traffic count at the Aquarium with Keiko and what type of traffic counts are you seeing today compared to when Keiko was at the Aquarium. Lewis: The Aquarium currently hosts about 450,000 visitors per year. While Keiko was at the Aquarium, over 1.2 million visited in one year. NG: What is the annual operating budget for the Aquarium? Lewis: $7.7 million NG: What can we expect to see in new or enhanced attractions/events at the Aquarium in the months/ years ahead? Expansion? Lewis: The Aquarium has added a number of ways for visitors to meet animals and explore our exhibits from a new perspective. Visitor feedback tells us that programs like

JEREMY C. RUARK/THE NEWS GUARD

Visitors can get an up-close look at a variety of marine life at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. the giant Pacific octopus encounter and Guest Snorkel Program provide our guests with a unique opportunity to connect with our animals and exhibits. The Aquarium is exploring the possibility of adding new species of program animals for visitors to meet. We always have something new up our sleeve, and plan to announce a new exhibit in the coming months. NG: Any chance there would be another killer whale brought to the Aquarium? Lewis: The Aquarium does not have the staff or facilities to care for an orca and there are no plans to bring a cetacean to the Aquarium. Our goal for the foreseeable future is

to improve our existing footprint, whether it is updating current exhibits, offering new onsite programming and providing the best care possible for our animals.

JEREMY C. RUARK/THE NEWS GUARD

The Oregon Coast Aquarium also offers visitors a chance to see coastal birds.

NG: What is the Aquarium’s 10-15-20 year business plan? Lewis: The perpetual goal of the Aquarium is to provide one of the best living marine science education experiences in the United States. This defines every aspect of our organizations current day-to-day operations and plans for the future. NG: Some visitors have expressed concerns about what they call the high price of admission ($18.95 for adults). Is there any review of the prices and any plans

to adjust the admission? Lewis: The staff at the Aquarium greatly values the feedback some of our visitors choose to provide. The description of their experience that they share is carefully reviewed and considered on a regular basis. Admission fees support our work to promote a future with healthy oceans. As a nonprofit organization, we invest revenue into caring for the animals that live here, wildlife research and reha-

bilitation and educating people about the ocean and its current environmental issues. Maintaining our position as one of the top ten aquariums in the country requires constant reinvestment and renewal. Aquariums are very expensive to operate and maintain, and our animals are provided with the best care possible,

regardless of cost. Our staff strives to exceed industry best practices in animal husbandry and public education every day. Admission revenues and membership support allow us to continue this important work. Admission is just $5 for Lincoln County residents with proof of residency every Wednesday of the year.
