Not since Feb. 21, 2008, a stretch of 55 games, has the Taft High girls basketball team won a conference game. The Tigers were 5-88 overall during the past four years entering this season. The quest to transform the losing into victory will begin Tuesday, Jan. 21, in the Taft High gym, where the Tigers will host Stayton in the Class 4A Oregon West Conference opener for both teams.

Val-Co Conference, 68-66, on the road in overtime. Taft’s girls last won a game against a league opponent nearly six years ago, when they defeated the Huskies, 37-30, at home. The season is the school’s last in Class 4A after the Oregon Student Activities Association granted a petition last fall for Taft to move down in classification to the 3A West Valley League in all sports next year.

The City of Lincoln City Council is expected to hold a public hearing at 6 p.m. Feb. 10 on a set of proposed regulations concerning the operation of vacation rental dwellings (VRD’s) within the city limits. On Jan. 6, the Lincoln City Planning Commission held the first public hearing to review the proposed VRD regulations. Several people testified at that hearing, many expressing their concerns about the proposed regulations, and asking the Commission not to adopt the move restrictive proposals. Joy Wilson, manager of Oregon Beach Vacations, told the Commission she was speaking for 33 of her employees. “These people are working class people in Lincoln City,” she said. “Please don’t adopt these alternatives (and limit VRD operations). If my housekeepers lose the opportunity to clean these (vacation) homes once a month, it will affect them putting food on the table for their families. The VRD’s support many local businesses and their employees. Don’t limit the usage.” Carolyn Plummer called the proposed ordinances unfair. “Its not right,” she said. “This is not fair. There is

he class has helped increase my confidence that I can help.

Dozens of students at Taft High 7-12 High are not just learning reading, writing and arithmetic. They are taking part in specialized training called Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) to save lives. David Trost, a Taft sophomore, said he took the class to be able to help the community. “I am learning how to help victims that might be trapped in the school or outside in the community during a disaster,” said Trost. “The class has helped increase my confidence that I can help.” “I am learning how to help people in disaster situations,” said Shaylee Daniels, a Taft freshman. “If there is a fire, an earthquake, a tsunami or other disaster, we will know what to do.” Daniels said the CERT training was challenging. “But most of it is pretty easy once you get the hang of it,” she said. Majalise Tolan, Taft High principal, said the class was critical in helping students learn important life skills. “So, if they are ever in a real emergency, they have something to fall back on,” said Tolan. “They will have a strong preparedness background,

Sue Graves, Lincoln County School District safety

coordinator, said the district has used the CERT training at Taft High over the past three years. “This is the exact same training adults take, but it is more intense,” said Graves. “They receive the instructions each school day through an entire semester. The skills they are learning become second nature because they are doing

the training over and over.” Graves said the students learn how to treat the people that have life-threatening injuries. “Those are things that people can die from very

quickly,” she said. Seventy Taft High Teen CERT students took part in a skills test/certification on Thursday, Jan. 9, at Taft. Each student went through six stations to check proficiency: -Safety gear check -Open airway -Control bleeding -Recognize and treat for shock -Extinguish small fire -Turn off gas meter The students worked with a buddy, wearing full gear at each station. Buddy teams worked together and helped each other, but each person had to prove their proficiency at each skill. Adult CERT volunteers manned the stations to help guide the students through the tests.

A final certification test will be conducted at 9:30 a.m. Friday, Jan. 17; student actors will be used as victims during a CERT drill at the North Lincoln Fire & Rescue Station in Taft. “Students will have to do a size up, checking for safety to make sure they can go into the area,” said Graves. “As they find victims they will sort them and treat the ones that have immediate injuries.” The CERT students will move the victims to a medical treatment area. A CERT student team will provide further medical services to the victims. Following the drills, CERT organizers and school administrators will see what went right and what skills the students need to be strengthened. Waiting Room

Samaritan Health centers limiting public visits To protect pediatric patients, mothers and their newborns from flu viruses circulating in the region, all Samaritan Health Services hospitals, including North Lincoln Samaritan Hospital in Lincoln City, are limiting visitors in birthing centers. The restrictions will remain in place until the flu season is over. Each new mom and pediatric patients will be allowed a total of four visitors during their stay, and no visitors under the age of 12 will be allowed in the birthing centers or pediatric units unless they are healthy sibling of a newborn or pediatric patient. This means four designated visitors throughout the entire hospital stay, not simply four at a time. The designated support people need to be free of flu symptoms and carefully follow infection control guidelines, such as hand washing. Pregnant women and

children are among those in high-risk categories for complications from influenza-like illnesses, as defined by the Centers for Disease Control. Limiting visitors to hospital birthing centers and pediatric units reduces the potential for exposure for this vulnerable population. The best defense against flu viruses, both at hospitals and in the community, is to avoid exposure through the following basic hygiene and infection control measures: • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your upper sleeve;

• Wash your hands with soap and water frequently and regularly, or use alcoholbased hand sanitizers when soap and water are not available; • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. This is how germs are spread; • Get your seasonal flu shot (subject to availability); • If you are sick, stay home. For basic information about the flu, visit the Oregon Department of Human Services’ flu prevention website at flu.oregon.gov.

County commissioner foresees economic improvement JEREMY C. RUARK jruark@countrymedia.net

Lincoln County is still recovering from the long national recession that included job and service reductions, but County Commissioner Doug Hunt predicts 2014 will be a more positive year for residents. Hunt said he expects County revenue to pick up slowly over the next year due to increased building. “Our first concern is with the County budget.” Hunt said. “I am confident that we will have a budget that will continue to provide the current level of services. I don’t see additional employee layoffs, service cuts or new tax proposals,

but we will have to be cautious and prudent.” Hunt said he believes the County will add revenues in some areas. “We will be selectively increasing some services,” he said. Hunt said he expects some service increases at Commissioner the County Doug Hunt planning department and the County sheriff’s office and additional staff in the County’s health and human services department “There has been economic

improvement in the County, but it has been slow,” said Hunt. “But I am concerned about the long term, four or five years from now, will we be looking at another recession? We want to be careful in what we do now, so that were aren’t having to make more service reductions and employee cuts when the recession comes.” Hunt said the economic downturn could be triggered by high interest rates. “That diminishes people’s borrowing ability,” he said. Hunt said he also is concerned about international events and oil prices that could add to an economic decline. He said Lincoln County should expect less federal financial help this year.

“The federal government has more limited resources, therefore they will be limiting the dollars available to the County,” he said. “The same thing is true with the State of Oregon, so the more prudent budgeting and financial planning that we can do now to build reserves, to protect ourselves from the lose of those revenues, the better.” Hunt said important local transportation concerns will be addressed this year. “We are fortunate to have gotten state funding for projects in Lincoln City, Depoe Bay, Newport and Waldport,” he said. Those projects include the Nelscott Gap improvements on Highway 101 in Lincoln City.

Harbor Avenue improvement plan moves ahead JEREMY C. RUARK jruark@countrymedia.net

The Lincoln City City Council has accepted a City public works department recommendation to move ahead with design of improvements for Harbor Avenue. Lincoln City Public Works staff presented a preliminary design for the N.W. Harbor Improvements Project during the Council’s Jan. 13 public meeting. “We believe this is a much more functional design,” said Stephanie Reid, Lincoln City st a.m. engineer. The decision follows tors ring a the Council’s rejection of a ncoln consultant’s plan and recomaft. mendation for Harbor Drive in do late 2013. “The consultant’s plan ety nto was more of a concept with they many changes proposed, such them as traffic calming tables and ve bulb-outs, wide sidewalks, and they didn’t look at utilizing the right of way on the east side ll di- so there were opportunities missed for parking,” said Reid. T “Overall, they were proposing o the more of a dramatic change and we took it back a notch and showed a lower impact design ool that preserved more of what is hat existing now.” The project area includes the gth- N.W. Harbor Avenue between N.W. 15th and N.W. 22nd streets and includes the intersection at N.W. 15th Street Beach Access. Staff included input from two neighborhood meetings and subsequent comments from Council and

residents to develop a recommended preliminary design. The goals of the project are to improve pedestrian access and American with Disabilities (ADA) accessibility while balancing the needs of all users including pedestrians, bicyclists, vehicles, and adjacent property owners. Criteria for success included making the best use of the public right of way; working with property owners to ensure existing driveways and accesses were preserved or improved to match the improvements; preserving on-street parking where feasible; and installing a continuous ADA compliant sidewalk along the west side of Harbor Avenue. Funding for the improvements was approved in the City’s 2013-14 budget. The preliminary cost estimate for the recommended alternative, including engineering and construction, is $500,000. Councilor Gary Ellingson questioned the cost of the proposed improvements. “This looks like it will be much more expensive than the consultant’s plans,” said Ellingson. “The consultant’s plans would have basically rebuilt the road and would have been much more expensive,” said Reid. “This concept is a lot less costly.” Councilor Roger Sprague said he favored the City staff’s proposal. “This is a big step forward,” said Sprague. “I was not at all happy with the consultant’s

recommendations.” Council Wes Ryan agreed. “This plan looks pretty doggone good to me,” said Ryan. Reid said photos of the proposed improvements will be posted on the City’s web site and the City will continue to take public comments before final designs are completed. The Council agreed to allow the public works department to move forward with designing the improvement for Harbor Avenue. The Council also heard from Gordon McMinn, a member of the Lincoln Senior Center Board of Directors, who said the Board, and several members of the Center, are concerned about the loss of a room at the Center dedicated for television and crafts. The Senior Center is located inside the Lincoln City Community Center. McMinn said the Senior Center Board is asking the City to reinstate the space. “The Board feels that it was the intent of the voters in 1978 (when voters approved building the Community Center) to provide that space for senior citizen interests and activities,” said McMinn. “That space was originally provided in good faith by Lincoln City and should not be subjugated to decisions made by others.” City Manager David Hawker told the Council his staff was reviewing the concerns. “There has never been a commitment for space,” said Hawker. “I am not sure

what the voters were told is still binding. I don’t want to see space under utilized and I want to make sure the seniors do have adequate apace. There may need to be some compromising.”

starting at 9 percent. This is a long way of saying that small businesses are taxed at a higher rate than large businesses, which I think is wrong. In 2013, a tax break for S Corporations passed with my support during a three-day special session. I was one of the few Democrats who voted yes on the proposal. It was a good bill, but I think we need to make some adjustments in the upcoming session to ensure that the new law helps more Oregonians who are working hard to keep their small businesses afloat and looking for opportunities to grow. The first problem is that currently, in order to receive the new breaks, businesses need to employ at least one year-round, full-time employee. Here at the Coast, seasonal businesses in fishing, farming, or tourism don’t always keep employees year round. Working parents and working seniors don’t all work full time. And many of the people who work full time do so combining several part-time jobs. As written, the law helps none of these people. I’m trying to change that. Under my plan the required employment threshold will be lowered

Rep. David Gomberg (D) so a much larger number of small-but-growing enterprises will be included. The other problem is that the new tax break has no upper limit. The majority of S Corporations profit less than $25,000 and get a tiny tax savings. But there are 250 qualifying firms that profit over $1 million a year. Their tax break exceeds $40,000 per tax filer. I congratulate those successful firms, but I don’t think they need a break that is more than most Coastal workers earn in an entire year. So I want to limit the tax cut to the first $250,000 of profit.

There is also a subtle problem with an unlimited tax break. We know how many firms qualify for the savings right now. But we don’t know how many other large businesses might change their tax status to qualify in the future. And, I’m nervous about a policy where we have absolutely no idea of the ultimate cost. Capping the cut at $250,000 will give us a stable revenue stream and reduce the incentive for large firms to “play the system” for a better rate. There is one other major issue that I’m passionate about and will continue to focus on in 2014. I’ve written before about the huge amount of tax cheating by people who fail to report income, under-report income, or submit a return then simply don’t send a check. Tax fraud steals more than $1.3 billion a year that, if collected, could be used to improve education, support seniors, or reduce taxes for law-abiding citizens. As a member of the committee that manages the Department of Revenue (DOR) budget, I persuaded the director to hire 30 new tax agents at a cost of about $10 million annually. Those agents are expected to collect about $30 million

this year, a 10:1 return on investment for the state. I have also required that DOR report annually on the uncollected amount owed to the state, together with a plan to improve collections. When tax cheats pay their fair share, everyone can pay less. The 2014 session will be fast-paced and over quickly – we’re scheduled to convene for only 35 days, beginning Feb. 3. I’ll be working hard to bring tax relief to more and smaller businesses. And I’ll be continuing looking for ways to foster more opportunity, security and a sustainable quality of life on the Central Coast and West Valley.

NW Natural is headquartered in Portland and provides natural gas service to about 689,000 residential, commercial, and industrial customers in Oregon and Southwest Washington. It is the largest independent natural gas utility in the Pacific Northwest. Pacific Power provides electric service to more than 730,000 customers in Oregon, Washington and California.

Another person testified that Lincoln City has a national reputation as having tight restrictions on the operation of VRDs. “I think we have the controls in place to do a good job of overseeing,” he said. “I encourage you to use what you have. You have to seek balance.” The Planning Commission voted to review the public testimony and proposed ordinances at its Feb. 6 public meeting. The Commission will make recommendations to the City Council prior to the Council’s Feb. 10 public hearing. The new regulations include increased City inspections of the VRD’s to ensure public safety. Currently, the City only inspects the VRDs for smoke and carbon

Customers warned about s suspicious utility email Portland General Electric, NW Natural and Pacific Power say their customers are targets of a widespread email scam. The scam emails have so far claimed to be from Atmos Energy, a natural gas utility based in Dallas, Texas, and PG&E, a combined natural gas and electric utility in San Francisco that is not affiliated with PGE in Oregon. The emails have been sent to people throughout the United States, including to customers of PGE, NW Natural and Pacific Power. The fraudulent billing message tells customers that their Atmos or PG&E bill is ready and provides a hyperlink to view it. If the recipient clicks on the link, it takes them to a compromised website that harbors malware. Anyone who receives this email should not click on any hyperlinks. If PGE, NW Natural or Pacific Power customers are not sure about the authenticity of an email that appears to come from their utility, they are encouraged to go directly to the PGE website, www.portlandgeneral.com, NW Natural website, www.nwnatural.com, or Pacific Power website, www.pacificpower. net, where they can log into their accounts and review their statements. If you have any questions regarding this scam, customers can also contact PGE customer service at 503-228-6322 or 800-5428818, NW Natural at 800-422-4012 or Pacific Power at 888-221-7070.

Walking with ‘toys’ leads to arrest On Jan. 8, at about 5:45 p.m., a Lincoln County Sheriff’s patrol deputy was leaving the east parking lot of the courthouse in a marked patrol vehicle when he saw a male walking east on the sidewalk of W. Olive Street in Newport carrying what appeared to be a military style semiautomatic rifle. The male continued walking east and grasped the rifle in both hands, pointed it in front of him, waved it over his head and then pointed it in the direction of passing motorists traveling on West Olive. The deputy stopped his patrol ve-

hicle and confronted the male at gunpoint. The male placed the rifle and a large fixed blade knife on the ground and was detained. The male was identified as 19-year-old Keir Skinner of Newport. According to the deputy, Skinner stated he was “walking with his toys” and wanted to see how far he would get. The rifle turned out to be a functional pellet gun resembling a real semiautomatic rifle. Skinner was lodged at the jail on one count of Disorderly Conduct in the first degree. His bail was set at $10,000.

Taft High boys basketball coach Scott Henderson stops well short of saying it, but it’s the air between his players’ ears, not the air in the basketball, that remains his biggest concern as its Oregon West Conference opener, Tuesday, Jan. 21, against Stayton, approaches. “We are playing well physically, but the mental side of the game we are still learning and aren’t there yet,” the first-year Taft coach said following a 47-42 defeat at Estacada (4-7), Friday, Jan. 10, after opening the week with a 51-41 defeat at Scappoose

(5-6) on Tuesday, Jan. 7. “That is why we are losing the close ones.” The Tigers, 5-5, are scheduled to play Tuesday, Jan. 14, at 3-8 Astoria (past deadline) and Friday, Jan. 17, at 6-5 Yamhill-Carlton, before facing the Eagles (3-8) in the league opener at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21, at Taft. “We need a great effort mentally and physically to be a good basketball team,” Henderson said. “We are working on getting better on the mental side and, with work, the kids will get there. “We know what are weaknesses are, and we are going to get better at them because the kids have the desire.”

Youth swimmers make splash in Newberg meet JIM FOSSUM JFossum@countrymedia.net

Thirty swimmers, the largest contingent of athletes representing the Lincoln City Swim Club in a road competition in years, were led by four first-place finishes from 9-year-old Sam Cortes in a weekend age-group meet at Newberg. Cortes, who also placed second three times in his seven events, led the boys team to a third-place finish behind winning Tigard/Tualatin, which defeated Chehalem, 976-876.5 for the title. Lincoln City was third at 779.5, followed by McMinnville, 600; N.W. Blue Crush Aquatic Club, 477.5; Albany Aquatics, 432.5; Cascadia, 379; Sherwood Y Dragons, 274.5; Woodburn, 269.5; and the Tornadoes Swim Team, 250. Cortes’ older sister, Lizeth, a 15-year-old freshman at Taft High, was the only other multiple winner (100 freestyle, 200 backstroke) for Lincoln City, which placed seventh among the girls. Natalie Gates, 8, won the 25-yard backstroke for LCSC and posted two runner-up finishes. Taft High sophomores Justin Delfin and Dylan Mickelson, both 15, also had second-place finishes for LCSC in the 100 breast and 200 back, respectively. Chehalem edged Tigard/Tualatin, 1,105-1,080 to win the girls meet. Albany was third with 886 points, followed by McMinnville, 847; Sherwood, 701; Cascadia, 402; Lincoln City, 292; Tornadoes, 237; Woodburn, 193; and N.W. Blue Crush, 186. Scan with your smart phone

Tigers drop two as league play awaits JIM FOSSUM JFossum@countrymedia.net

Taft High girls basketball coach Dan Mock knew his team would have its hands full Tuesday in a road game at Scappoose. He didn’t plan on things unraveling as easily just three days later, however, in another nonconference game at Estacada. The Tigers dropped both their games this week to fall to 4-7 with just two tune-up contests remaining before opening Class 4A Oregon West Conference play Tuesday, Jan. 21, at home against Stayton. “This was a night that could best be described by wondering what might have been,” Mock said following a 73-47 defeat to the Rangers (4-6) of the Tri-Valley Conference. “We were really anticipating this matchup, and I expected the game to be highly competitive and entertaining.” It was. For a half. The Rangers turned a five-point edge at intermission into 26-point victory going away with a pressing defense and uptempo offense. Throw in several circumstances beyond Taft’s control and it’s not difficult to see what the Tigers were up against. “There were a number of unfortunate events leading into the game that played a huge role in the course of

breaking it,” Mock said. “As the second half wore on, and all of the varying circumstances reared their proverbial heads, Estacada pulled away.” Essentially, two Taft starters played the entire game, and some girls played minutes they typically wouldn’t have. “By the middle of the fourth quarter, we were totally out of gas, and the game really got away from us on the scoreboard,” Mock said. Mock expected as much three nights earlier against the Class 4A Indians (4-6) of the Cowapa Conference. After using first-teamers sparingly in the first half, Scappoose turned a five-point advantage into a 35-point rout by game’s end. “I knew coming in that Scappoose would be the biggest challenge we had faced to date,” Mock said following the 54-19 defeat. “They had advantages in their height, athleticism and overall

how it was played and the final outcome,” Mock said. Junior starting post Katie McCardell was out with an elbow injury and a second starter was lost to concussion-related issues just prior to the start of the game. Her replacement fouled out early in the third quarter. Another substitute took a hit to the head and had to leave the game after only about a minute and a half with concussion-like symptoms. The Rangers took off running.

I encourage loud and soft, big voices and small voices.” Nelson is the Driftwood Public Library’s youth services coordinator and affectionately known as “the Story Lady.” She’s been conducting reading JEREMY C.

Along Garden Paths

By Karen Brown

Winter is for dreaming Winter at the Coast means days of rain and wind, interspersed with unbelievable sunshine, and cold noses and ears whenever the sky is clear. It’s a perfect time to cozy up indoors and enjoy those seed catalogs that arrive in your mailbox, or take some time with the Internet to learn more about what’s new and exciting in the world of gardening. I know that most of you don’t actually start most of your flowers from seed, and there are so many improved varieties now that are grown by tissue culture and sold as sturdy transplants that it is hardly worth the effort anyway. But you do need to know how to treat the various kinds that you might decide to try this year. And you do need to sort out those that will tolerate a cool climate from the heat lovers. Those of us that love to grow vegetables, however, are entranced by seed catalog descriptions and the promise of improved yields, earlier crops and more disease resistance. We depend on seed catalog listings to help us locate those that are happy with a short growing season, and can tolerate a slow, cool start. I’ve already made myself a nice list of vegetable choices, which I will refine and edit several more times before I actually send an order. Many of our favorite vegetables can only be grown from seed, so we do get to dream and plan ahead for the summer’s bounty, and then locate the magic seeds to make it happen. On the sunny days when you just have to take a walk, watch for the earliest blooms on snowdrops, primroses, hellebores, witch hazel and some rather confused azaleas and other shrubs. In spite of the cold snap early in December, there might be blooms to be seen already. Soon the earliest tiny bulbs, such as crocus, will also begin to show growth and then before long some blooms. Spring won’t be here quite yet, but we always feel optimistic when we see these. Meanwhile, you can expect to find some twigs to pick up after every windy storm, and if larger branches have broken, prune the ragged stubs on a calm day. Make clean cuts next to the trunk or branch from which they came. Allow the resulting cut to dry naturally. Pruning paint has been proven to do more harm than good. Heavy rains will show you if you have some areas with poor drainage, or where the grade needs to be improved to channel water in the proper direction. Plan to fill the low spots and correct the runoff channels which may not have been visible until needed by excess rainfall. December’s cold probably has killed some of the more tender plants in your collection, but if you hope to save them, don’t do anything about removing them until much later in the spring. I have many times been surprised to find new growth arising from the roots of something that I was sure wouldn’t live through the winter. You will have to replace your geraniums, however, if they were unprotected outdoors. Look at it as an opportunity to try something new, or to acquire fresh vigorous plants to fill the spaces. In walking around our property, I don’t see many shrubs that suffered from the cold. It is better to wait to prune these until new growth begins so you can see exactly where to cut. Always cut to just above an outward facing bud or sprout, to keep new growth from crowding the center of the plant. This promotes good air circulation that helps prevent disease. Enjoy the slower pace of winter, when nothing in the garden really has to be done immediately, and you have time to think and plan and dream. Karen Brown can be reached at wkbrown@embarqmail.com.

Children’s Story Times

with each book, using her whole body, oral expressions, songs, and even puppets to help engage each child. “There are so many beautiful children’s books and different ways of presenting them,” said Nelson. “I love to sing and I incorporate sound into the voice of a story to help engage a listener. So much opens up to a child when one is able to travel in the rich detail of good stories. Literacy begins at birth. Sound, touch, sight, sharing and repeating all help a child to the written/spoken word.” Nelson moved to Oregon in 1979. She’s taught in private preschools in Port Orford and Toledo, volunteered at Siletz Library, became courier to Lincoln County Library District, and was a temporary clerk for three of the five Lincoln County Library District libraries until hired at Driftwood in 2001. Nelson enjoys engaging both the children and the parents at the reading sessions. “I enjoy entertaining at all levels,” she said. “The more parents are engaged, the more children learn from them and appreciate the joy of storytelling.” But Nelson acknowledges that a child’s attention span is often fleeting. “I switch up storytelling with song, puppets, flannel stories, finger plays, dance and marching to keep their attention,” said Nelson. “I so enjoy looking up and seeing a focus return when I sing a book.” Nelson said her favorite book is one that helps her connect with the children and adults. “I always have begun story times with the David A. Carter pop up book “Happy and You Know It” because It sings, it engages, it moves and it’s simple,” she said. “I love bright-colored pages with short text for the youngest children – I Went Walking, by Sue Williams for instance. For the 3- to 5-year-olds, I love repeating, rhyming texts with humor and lessons. Mr. Gumpy’s Outing by John Burningham lends itself to puppets, a play, a flannel story and a tea party.” Nelson also uses a special chair set inside the children’s section of the library during her reading events. “The story chair was found in the Ryan Gallery in 1991. Funds were raised by Friends of the Library to pur-

To learn more about Driftwood’s children’s reading program, call Nelson at 541-996-1258.

In My Own Words: The Artistry in Woods Show By John Larsell

Editors Note: The News Guard is introducing a new feature called In My Own Words. Community members write the stories about projects or events they are involved with. The stories will appear periodically. This first article comes from John Larsell, who tells us about his love for woodcarving as part of this weekend’s annual wood carver’s show at Chinook Winds Casino Resort in Lincoln City. Working with wood appealed to me for a variety of reasons. My hobbies always included doing something with my hands. I went to the woodcarving show and saw such a variety of woodwork; I knew I could find something I would like. I took one of the free classes and with the instructors help, I carved a lighthouse! OK, they cut the shape, but I did some work. It is 3 inches tall and I painted it at home. What appeals to me is the wide variety of styles and skill levels. No matter what I try, from rustic to painting, it is never boring. The carvers are the most helpful people I have met. Just ask and they will share their years of experience or show you how it is done. It really speeds up the learning curve. Tools, I love tools. I have more tools each year.

But, you can saw, carve or whittle. You could do a lot with just a knife. The free show and carving classes are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 18, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 19, at Chinook Winds Casino Resort’s convention center in Lincoln City. This is one of the largest woodcarving events in the Northwest and our 22nd year. This year’s theme is Native American, and our featured carver is Lonnie Accord from Seaview, Wash. There are lots of wood styles to see: caricature, Santas, lifelike, wildlife, scroll saw, wood turning and more. You can spend a lot of time on a carv-

In 1938, with an abundance of crab and a need for tourists, the town started a Crab Festival, giving away the delicacies by the thousands. During the first Crab Festival, 25,000 people visited Newport for the free
