reality check


When it comes to a reality check for the Oregon Coast economy, there is positive information to report, but also challenges ahead. “We are finally starting to see a little improvement,” said Mark McMullen, a state economist with the Oregon Office of Economic Analysis. According to McMullen, the first two to three years following the recession in 2008, the Oregon economic recovery was concentrated in the state’s major metropolitan areas such as Portland, Salem and Eugene. “Now that recovery is spreading out to the rural areas and to the Oregon Coast, in particular, to areas that were the epicenter of the housing downturn,” said McMullen, “We are finally starting to see some construction activity and a lot of building activity.” McMullen said there will be some role in the recovery along the Coast for regional resources such as timber, fishing, and exporting industries.

“But as we move forward we will see the Coast branch out into more service industries that have been under represented, such as computers, business services, legal services, and accounting. Services that had been confined to bigger cities,” said McMullen. “Now, we will see additional ties to those services along the Coast.” But McMullen said the slow economic recovery comes with two main challenges. “The first challenge is the aging work force,” he said. “If the Coast is unable to keep young workers, cities will be unable to attract firms going forward, and things will worsen from there.” The second challenge is the Coast infrastructure. “Access is everything,”

A request by all parties has been made to schedule Steven Sam Gilmore to appear Nov. 12 in Lincoln County Circuit Court to face second-degree charges of theft and criminal mischief for a memorial plaque allegedly stolen and damaged from the Taft High 7-12 football field grandstands. The alleged theft of the plaque, which commemorated those responsible for constructing a synthetic turf surface at Voris Field, caused a division of community members over the internal handling of the case last spring by former Taft High 7-12 Principal Scott Reed, who has since taken on an administrative position within the school district. District Superintendent Tom Ri-

nearson has denied that the principal’s internal handling of the alleged theft resulted in his removal after five years as Taft principal. Reed was cleared of allegations of improprieties made by the group following an investigation by an attorney hired by the Lincoln County School District. He found that allegations of misuse of funds and failure to divulge negative information during the interview process were unsubstantiated or unwarranted. The concerned citizens group also urged prosecution of the alleged thief of the plaque, while Reed insisted on keeping to his word with the alleged perpetrator and handling the affair internally. In filing for arraignment, the District Attorney’s office said “The See PLAQUE, Page A5

Light turnout for Nov. 5 Special Election V

oters in Lincoln County are being asked in the Nov. 5 Special Election to decide if the current system to elect Lincoln County Board of Commissioners should be changed from partisan to nonpartisan. In Newport, voters will decide the fate of a new pool. In a small area of Rose Lodge, voters will decide if a new special road district should be formed, and in Waldport voters are being asked to elect a City Councilor to fill a vacant position. “We mailed out 27, 953 ballots on Oct. 18,” said Dana Jenkins, Lincoln County Elections Clerk. Jenkins said if you are a registered voter and did not receive your mail-in ballot, call the elections office at 541265-4131.

As of Oct. 28, County Elections had received approximately 11 percent of the ballots back. Jenkins said Special Election turnout can be slow until the last day or even last several hours before the 8 p.m. deadline on Election Day. “Most people do wait until the last few days to turn in their ballot and that is usually a combination of making up their minds and putting it off until they have to do it,” said Jenkins Jenkins anticipates between 30 to 35 percent voter turnout in the election. The County Elections office has received inquiries from some voters wondering if they should be voting on the Newport pool issue. “We’ve had to explain to several people that only those voters living within the Newport city limits are voting on the pool

Students prepare for future at GEAR UP JEREMY C. RUARK

Deciding what to do after high school might be a daunting task for some, but for Kaley Engel, a Taft High senior, the decision is simple. “My plan is to open a restaurant for teenagers,” said Engel. She said many people have discouraged her because they said the failure rate for new restaurants is high. “But that is my dream,” said Engel. “I am so tired of seeing all my friends get involved in drugs and other things because there is not much for them to do in a town like this. That’s my motivation.” Engel’s plan after she graduates from Taft is to attend college and gain a business degree to help her to open the restaurant. She joined dozens of other juniors and seniors from Newport, Waldport, Toledo and Taft high schools at the annual GEAR UP College Fair held Oct. 28 at Taft High 7-12. More than 30 representatives from trade schools, public and private universities and the Armed Forces offered information to the students during the event. Taft senior Tyler Dordan came to the college fair looking for information about the physical therapy industry. “I am getting an idea of what these colleges can offer

me,” said Dordan. “I also want to see what scholarships are available.” Angela Skjeie, Pacific University’s manager of admissions, answered Dordan’s questions as he filled out a form for more information about Pacific. “We get a lot of attention because of our graduation programs and our athletic programs,” said Skjeie. “We are a private university that offers that small-town feel but we are close enough to Portland to offer that bigcity atmosphere at the same time.” Vickie Roller, Taft counselor, said it was important to help students prepare now for after high school, especially if they want to attend college. “It is hard to get into college and it is very competitive,” said Roller. “It’s OK that they might not know just yet what they want to do after they graduate. But we want to open the doors to them and have them be college-ready, so when they decide, they are ready to go.” Roller said there is also financial help available for the students. “Every graduating senior from Taft that goes to college is eligible for a variety of scholarships,” said Roller. “This community is amazing in what it gives toward scholarships.”

Council to reevaluate Harbor Drive proposal JEREMY C. RUARK

After a lengthy discussion about concerns with a consultant-driven proposal to improve Harbor Drive, the Lincoln City City Council agreed at its regular public meeting Oct. 28 to direct City staff to come up with other options. “We had two public hearings and what the public said didn’t show up in the consultants recommendations,” said Dick Anderson, Lincoln City mayor. “City staff needs to spend time on the points that are important to us to get to the concept design stage for improvements.” Councilor Gordon Eggleton said he walked Harbor Drive several times and asked people living there and those with businesses what they wanted. “They all would prefer a standard 5-foot sidewalk and parking on the east side of the road,” said Eggleton. The City hired Portlandbased architecture firm Greenworks for $25,000 to come up with improvements for Harbor Drive. Greenworks is recommending that the city remove east-side street parking and add a pedestrian zone

on the west side of Harbor Avenue. According to Greenworks, removing the eastside street parking would give flexibility to accommodate other features such as bicycle lanes, bike racks, properly placed utility poles and vaults, and would create acceptable intersections. The improvements could cost as much as $750,000. Councilor Wes Ryan questioned the need for such services. “I am having difficulties with why we hired a consultant,” said Ryan. “We’ve talked about the sidewalk for Harbor Drive years ago and to pretty-up this end and pretty-up that end. We don’t need consultants to tell us this. In the future maybe we need to figure out what we want before we hire a consultant.” “It might have been a bad hire and that happens,” said Anderson. He said it was evident that a sidewalk was important to safely move pedestrians along the street and down to the beach. But Council members and some Harbor Avenue motel and condo operators questioned how wide the sidewalk would be and the impact on parking along the street. “I understand the need

for sidewalks, but parking is also important.” said Julie Greenwald, of The Sands Condos. “The proposed plan would limit our parking. I hope you will take a little longer to consider this and the impact it will have.” Anderson said parking should be retained on the east side of Harbor Drive, but the parking could be removed later if it wasn’t working. “The intersection at 15th is what bothers me the most,” said Anderson. “The end of 21st Street also concerns me. I would hope that we would put more energy in making that less of a parking lot and more of a viewpoint.” Anderson said the City needs to “back up” on the proposed Harbor Drive improvements. “I am not sure we have a concept yet,” he said. “In order to move to the next step in design we need to get a better concept. Unless this council is ready to roll, we need to back this up.” Councilor Chester Noreikis said he’d also prefer to have a 5-foot sidewalk and retain parking on the east side of Harbor Drive. “My preference is to simplify this and, hopefully, it will come in cheaper,” said

Noreikis. “My dream would be to have visitors park near Highway 101 and walk to the beach because that would provide businesses opportunities for our shops,” said Anderson. Anderson said that plan would give Lincoln City a more effective edge in tourism trade. Join the conversation. Post you comments on this story at

The Lincoln City warming shelter is at the Congregational Church located at 1760 N.W. 25th St.

Warming shelter needs blanket of volunteers The need for volunteers to ensure the reopening this winter of the homeless warming shelter at the Congregational Church in Lincoln City will be discussed at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Driftwood Public Library, 801 S.W. Highway 101. The opening of a day-use facility by Family Promise of Lincoln County next month is expected to ease the

burden on the needy, but a wintertime, nighttime facility is essential to the overnight needs of the community, said Ken McCormack, director of the Lincoln City Emergency Warming Shelter at 1760 N.W. 25th St. Due to health concerns for many of the shelter’s elderly volunteers, McCormack said the shelter was in need of more volunteers to make

the running of the facility possible. The shelter opened last year when temperatures dropped below freezing and on days when winds were severe. Notification came through the local media, police and social networks. To donate or volunteer, call the Congregational Church at 541- 994-2378 or McCormack at 503-392-3717.

GUEST COLUMN By Paco Maribona, CSA

Patience and persistence are the key watchwords. Despite much confusion, delays in Open Enrollments, especially for ACA (Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare) through Cover Oregon, we’re ahead of most states. So there’s plenty of time before mid-December to enroll, let things get ironed out. Getting your benefits right is paramount; and remember, you can always change plans annually, if advisable. Those on Medicare or Medicaid are exempted from, don’t need to shop the Cover Oregon marketplace; it’s mainly for folks under age 65 (and legal residents of any age who don’t qualify for Medicare). Group or individual grandfathered plan members may either keep their plans, or shop the exchange. Traditional Medicare Supplements with underwriting (health questions) are available year-round. The new Open Enrollment period for Medigap or Supplements as of 2013, the Oregon Birthday Rule, runs annually from 30 days before to 30-60 days after your birthday. You can then change to the same or lesser plan without any health questions, to save premium, with another company. Luckily, I took several clients with me last year to support the Birthday Rule at its Salem hearing; I was the

only agent there, though some mailed in their support. Medicare Part C medical plans, HMOs Health Maintenance Organizations like Kaiser, PPOs Preferred Provider Organizations like Regence, and Part D Rx plans, the so-called “advantage” plans have an Open Enrollment period annually from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7, to change or drop plans. Besides premiums, they have varying deductibles and co-pays that can run several thousand dollars annually. They offer a limited list of preferred providers, some cover drugs, are easy to apply for, yet often only cover emergencies outside their areas. HMOs require primary doctor referrals to specialists, while PPOs don’t; services cost less inside their networks, more outside them. A last disenrollment period runs from Jan. 1 to Feb. 14 annually. Cover Oregon, Oregon’s health insurance exchange, isn’t yet fully functional, as to actually verifying subsidies or online enrollments, but should be soon, perhaps in days or weeks, before the Dec. 15 enrollment deadline. Still, one can get a good idea of what’s available online now, than sign up through your certified agent or navigator, or by yourself soon. Applications on paper are available, but they are long and cumbersome, as are applications via phone, due to privacy issues. Extended open

enrollment runs until March 31, 2014. Here are a few tips: eligibility for subsidies or tax credits is determined by tax filing status. If you’re low income, under 100-138 percent of FPL Federal Poverty Level ($15,856/individual; $32,499/family of 4), especially if you get food stamps, you can sign up for OHP Oregon Health Plan via a 1 page fast track form. Folks with incomes above subsidy levels will soon have a short enrollment form option. The rest need to qualify via income, taxes, long form. Whatever plan you consider, be sure your doctors are in their network. Some plans like Moda and Lifewise have large, existing state networks; some are new, possibly without track records. Here are ways to get health plans: through your employer, or individually, either inside or outside the exchange; or stay with your grandfathered plan, if preferable. Tax credits are only available through the exchange; tax deductions, outside it. If qualified, tax credits can be advanced monthly to offset premiums. See your tax professional for details. Many people can be helped by these plans; fewer will face financial problems, like bankruptcy. Consider your choices carefully, and shop wisely. Paco Maribona, is a Certified Senior Advisor.

Family Promise reaching out to help homeless children GUEST COLUMN By Linda Roy

I have learned to trust that which is out there in the universe that leads, directs, places me, sometimes shoves, and guides me to where I land. That trust has developed from numerous moves, which led to experiences that have enriched my life greatly. This is never truer than my participation with Family Promise of Lincoln County and how I came to be the interim director this past September. I learned about Family Promise of Lincoln County along with 50 or so community members who attended a Call to Action at The Eventuary in April 2012. This meeting was led by a young AmeriCorps volunteer, Hanna Connett, who had been working with the HELP (Homeless Education and Literacy Project) program for the Lincoln County School District. This program within the schools works with students and/or their family to eliminate the barriers related to school attendance and success. From her work within the HELP program Hanna saw a need in our community that was not being met — a program or network aimed to alleviate child and parent homelessness. At that Call to Action, Hanna and a representative from the national Family Promise organization, laid out the need and how the Family Promise model meets and serves those needs. From that moment. I was in. In whatever capacity, I was in. I was

in because the information was staggering. The number of homeless children in our communities is incomprehensible. If you don’t see the need it must not exist, right? That day those children existed and it was not acceptable. From that day forward, Hanna, and quite a few members in our community, started working diligently and sometimes exhaustively to become a Family Promise affiliate. And, while a year and half seems like a long time, there has been a whirlwind of activity that has engaged not only those who have worked from day one to bring Family Promise to Lincoln County, but has truly engaged a whole community. Here’s a brief outline of how this has come together: April 2012 • Call to Action June 2012 • Receive 501(c)(3) non-profit status June 2012 to Date • Numerous Fundraising Efforts Raising over $35,000 (in-kind volunteer hours and goods equal over $100,000) • Partner with seven Host Congregations and numerous supporting congregations • Board and Committee Development July 2013 • Sign lease on the Day Center located in old Taft Fire Hall/Community College I find being part of this organization to be so rewarding

and profoundly soul-satisfying, not only because of the mission to alleviate child and parent homelessness, but because of the partnerships being forged, the community that has engaged, the conversations being had. There is not a day that passes that I, a board member, volunteer, spouse, or anyone connected with Family Promise does not receive an inquiry or offer of help. And, we need that help, in various ways, especially to move us into the next phase. We are currently awaiting completion of renovations of the Day Center before we can occupy it and begin serving families that will be part of the Family Promise program. The plans for phase one includes the reception area, two offices, and the Thrift Store space. We hope to have that available for use sometime this winter. In the meantime, we continue working to add more Host Congregations, build our committees and fund raise. It’s an exciting time for Family Promise of Lincoln County. I can see it coming together. I can see how this will impact not only the families we will serve, but our community. I can see how a volunteer who chooses to sit down for a meal with our families walk away with far more than a full stomach. I can see congregations, businesses, service organizations, schools, children, families, individuals coming together to support those families who are part

of our community, our neighbors. For me, personally, this might be one of the most meaningful things that I will be a part of in my lifetime. It is a bit overwhelming, too, because it is so important. This is important. I encourage you to learn more about Family Promise of Lincoln County. I encourage you to donate and participate. Just a few upcoming events: • Thursday, Nov. 7, 5:30 p.m. 8:30 p.m. “A Month Before Christmas” Shopping Extravaganza in Depoe Bay – 50 to 100 percent sales go to Family Promise of Lincoln County. • Saturday, Nov. 9, 6 p.m. Celebrity Server’s State Representative, David Gomberg, and local business consultant, Chris Waugh, On the Fly, in partnership with The Lodge at Otter Crest will host a winemaker’s dinner – limited seating so reserve early. • Thursday, Nov. 21, 5:30 p.m. CALL TO ACTION II – Join the Family Promise of Lincoln County Board of Directors, Committees, Staff, and other volunteers to hear more about Family Promise and how you can help.

Out in the cold Not one person in our community should have to suffer outdoors in freezing weather and cold driving rain because they do not have a home. Yet, that is what will happen this winter if Lincoln City’s Emergency Warming Shelter (located in the Congregational Church), cannot open its doors

again because of a lack of volunteer support. Please meet with other caring community members Saturday, Nov. 2 at 1 p.m. at the Driftwood Library to discuss how to shelter people on those few freezing and inclement nights. The facility is ready but volunteers are few. Jane Siebert Lincoln City

Sheriff’s Tips

By Sheriff Dennis Dotson

Most people think of Halloween as a time for fun and treats. However, roughly two times as many children aged 5-14 are killed while walking on Halloween evening compared with other evenings of the year, and falls are a leading cause of injuries among children on Halloween. Parents can help prevent children from

becoming injured on Halloween by following these safety tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Sheriff Safety Dennis Dotson Council. Children should: • Go only to well-lit houses and remain on porches rather than entering houses. • Travel in small groups and be accompanied by

an adult. • Know their phone numbers and carry a cell phone for an emergency phone call. • Carry a note in their pocket with their name and address. • Bring treats home before eating them so parents can inspect them. • When using costume knives and swords, ensure they are flexible, not rigid or sharp. When walking in neighborhoods, they should: • Use flashlights, stay on sidewalks if available, and avoid crossing yards. • Cross streets at the corner, use crosswalks if available, and don’t cross between parked cars. • Stop at all corners

and stay together in a group before crossing. • Wear clothing that is bright, reflective, and flame retardant. • Consider using face paint instead of masks. • Avoid wearing hats that could slide over their eyes. • Avoid wearing long, baggy, or loose costumes or oversized shoes to prevent tripping. • Always look left, right, and left again before crossing the street. Parents and adults should: • Supervise the outing for children under age 12. • Establish a curfew for older children. • Prepare homes for trick-or-treaters by clearing porches, lawns, and

sidewalks and by placing decorations away from doorways and landings. • Avoid giving choking hazards such as gum, peanuts, hard candies, or small toys as treats to young children. • Inspect all candy before children eat it. To ensure the safety of pedestrian trick-or-treaters, parents and adults should: • Make sure children under age 10 are supervised as they cross the street. • Drive slowly. • Watch for children in the street and on medians. • Exit driveways and alleyways carefully. • Have children get out of cars on the curbside, not the traffic side.

Following these tips should help ensure this Halloween is a safe and fun holiday for everyone. For more information and tips, visit our web site at and on your Smartphone via the “MobilePatrol” app and Like us on Facebook at Lincoln County Sheriff ’s Office – Oregon.

The oldest of six children born to Nellie and Joethan Murray of Salem, Janice graduated from Salem High School in 1935. During an extended summer vacation in 1937, she met George Kangas at a dance at the Oceanlake Dance Hall. The couple married on October 9, 1938, and Janice made the leap from being a college sorority girl at Willamette University to

Society, the Central Coast Cultural Center, American Field Service, and Business and Professional Women. She knitted and sewed and took classes in computers, quilting, and basket weaving—continuing her trend as a lifelong learner. She was a prodigious reader, often reading biographies well into the night. George died in 2003, and Janice remained in Lincoln City until 2005, when heart surgery necessitated a move to Portland to be closer to her doctors and to her daughters. Janice lived at West Hills Village in southwest Portland until her death. Daughter Christi Finch of New York City died in 2000, and granddaughter Alexandra Tint died in 2010. Janice is survived by her daughters and their husbands: Kathy and Ami Amrani of Tigard, Sharon and Robert Borgford of Lake Oswego, and Sheila and Sherman Coventry of Portland. She leaves four grandchildren: Karim Amrani, Sol Neelman, Leyla Amrani, and Pilar

Finch. Also surviving is her youngest brother, Jerry Murray ( Janyce) of Reno, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. For those wishing to do so, the family suggests memorial donations be made to the North Lincoln County Historical Museum, 4907 S.W. Highway 101, Lincoln City, OR 97367. Deceased’s Education: A memorial gathering will be held on Sunday, November 3, 2013 at 12:00 noon at the North County Historical Museum, 4907 S.W. Highway 101, Lincoln City, OR 97367.

Together George and Janice ran the Kangas Brothers’ Dairy in Cutler City, built and managed the Lakewood Motel in Delake, and developed the extensive Lakewood subdivision in Delake before moving to Salem in 1955. In Salem they operated the Kangas Highland Market before returning to the coast in 1964, with George constructing the Westshore Motel in Nelscott. Together George and Janice operated the motel until retirement in 1977, when they moved to their retirement home in the Taft Heights. During their years as business owners and operators, Janice and George formed many lasting friendships. It was Janice, however, who could extract—and remember!-the details of their life stories, often recounting them years later, to the astonishment of the people involved.

Homeless couple busted for stolen autos, burglaries A homeless couple arrested in Polk County and charged with stealing autos is also linked to burglaries in Lincoln City. On Oct. 26 at approximately 10:30 p.m., Polk County Sergeant Dustin Newman responded to the report of a stolen Dodge minivan from Lincoln County parked in a private driveway on Enterprise Road in rural Polk County, north of Dallas. Newman located two subjects sleeping in the stolen vehicle and requested the other on-duty deputy as a cover unit. Both suspects were arrested without incident. The suspects were identified as Dannielle Vifian, and Jeffery Hub-

bard. Both suspects are homeless. As the investigation continued, property was found inside the van that had been stolen during the commission of four reported burglaries in Lincoln City. The property recovered included law enforcement duty gear and two uniform patches worn by Lincoln City Police Department officials. The burglaries are still under investigation by the Lincoln City Police Department. Both suspects were also in possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Investigators used this evidence in the case against a Toledo man convicted of unlawfully killing an elk. COURTESY PHOTO

Toledo-area man sentenced 10 days for unlawful elk kill A Toledo-area man has been sentenced following his conviction for the unlawful killing of a large bull elk in Lincoln County. According to investigators, in August 2012, OSP Fish and Wildlife troopers at the Newport Area Command office received information that Josh Burnham, 30, killed the large bull elk on Plum Creek Timber Company property at a time when public entry was closed. An ongoing investiga-

tion coordinated by Senior Trooper Ryan Kehr led to OSP receiving more information in December. Search warrants were authorized and served in connection with the investigation. On Oct. 17, a Lincoln County jury found Burnham guilty of the following charges: • Two counts of hunting on the cultivated or enclosed lands of another; • Two counts of criminal trespass in the second

degree; • Unlawful possession of big game parts; • Two counts of theft in the third degree Following the guilty verdicts, Burnham was sentenced to 10 days in jail, ordered to pay $15,000 restitution to ODFW for the elk, $400 restitution to a local taxidermist and $1,400 in fines. Burnham also received a three-year hunting license suspension and two years probation.

said McMullen. “The geographic isolation of many of the coastal communities is really an impediment to growth. The more we can gets goods and services to the Coast, the more we can exploit what a great place it is.” McMullen cautions that coastal city leaders and businesses operators will need to shift their thinking about how to improve the economy and that might be a painful process. “It was that way in Portland when the City opened itself up to more Californians,” said McMullen. “So in rural Oregon and along the Coast are going to have to open our hearts to urban Oregonians.” Nonni Augustine, Lincoln City Chamber of Commerce executive director, said the summer tourism season was very encouraging due primarily to heat waves in the valley driving people to clear, cooler conditions in Lincoln City. “Several businesses we have talked with said they recorded from 10 to 25 percent profit increases over last summer,” said Augustine. “And we saw many new faces from all over the county.” She added that several businesses were confident enough in the economic recovery that they hired more employees for the summer season compared to previous seaasons. Help wanted signs are still up at some local businesses. Job hiring is another key economic indicator for the

Fast Fact

There are two main economic challenges facing the Oregon Coast: Retaining a young workforce and dealing effectively with geographic isolation. coast economy. Oregon’s last official unemployment rate of 8.1 percent showed increasing job growth and broad based economic expansion, according to David Cook, Oregon Department of Employment economist. “We’re growing between 2 and 3.5 percent which is moderately strong expansion,” said Cook. “We are in an economic recovery phase with populations growing, incomes growing, consumer confidence increasing, housing construction rising slowly and the federal reserve monetary policy has been very stimulating. The trend is positive.” But Cook said with the economic growth, there is somewhat of a hidden challenge. “It reflects a historically high number of people, close to 40,000, who have been searching for jobs for over one year,” said Cook. “But there is some hope for those people. More and more people will be finding jobs.” According to Cook, as the economy grows there will be regional job demands in retail sales, food services, offices, hospitals, medical clinics, care homes, trucking companies, and

housekeeping, janitorial and cleaning firms. On a seasonally adjusted basis, preliminary estimates from the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics indicate nonfarm payroll employment in Oregon rose by 4,500 in August, following a revised loss of 1,100 in July. Over the past 12 months, seasonally adjusted employment numbers show that the private sector has added 37,000 jobs, or 2.7 percent. Meanwhile, government has cut 6,300 jobs or 2.2 percent. In that time, six of the major private-sector industry categories have each expanded by between 2.3 and 3.5 percent. This breadth of steadily expanding industries is evidence of broad-based economic expansion in Oregon, said Cook. In addition, the leisure and hospitality sector, key for the Oregon Coast, has grown even more rapidly, by expanding by six percent adding 10,300 jobs. Due to the federal government shutdown, the September Oregon unemployment report has been postponed. The most recent statewide job report from August showed 1,790,994 Oregonians employed and 150,259 Oregonians unemployed.

Taft closes out season with defeat JIM FOSSUM sports@thenewsguard

The Taft High football team closed out its first season Friday under new coach James Mick with a 62-26 Oregon West Conference defeat at Cascade. It opened its second season under Mick three days later. Approximately 20 players showed up Monday, Oct. 28, following the Oct. 26 regular season-ending loss to the Cougars to get things started for their second year under Mick after going 2-7 overall and 0-5 in league play. “We had our first voluntary offseason workout today,” Mick said early Monday morning before taking on his other position as a social studies teacher. “That’s 20 kids who haven’t had the same coach for three years [Perry Herbst and Ken Martin each coached two seasons prior to Mick’s hiring last spring], so there’s been no real continuity, no offseason program, no doing anything over the summer, so that’s a huge factor,” Mick

said. So, too, is the Tigers’ step down in classification next season from 4A to the 3A West Valley League, where they will compete for the first time against similar-sized schools. “The populations are the same, where the amount of kids they have on the team will be about the same,” said Mick, whose outmanned Tigers were outscored 424-158 this season. “Right now, we have 30 kids playing teams with 60, 70 kids. Now, we’ll have 40 and they’ll have 40. That’s a big difference.” Taft, which surrendered 60 or more points in a game

three times, 50 or more five times and 40 or more seven times, will likely be able to shore up a defense that couldn’t keep the team in the

game long enough for junior quarterback Pete Lahti and senior wide receiver Seth Steere to overcome the avalanche of points.

While Taft also scored the fewest points in conference (an average of 17 while yielding 47), Lahti and Steere combined for virtually all of the Tigers’ scoring. That was the case again Friday, when Lahti and Steere hooked up for three touchdowns and Trent Daniels added a fourth rushing. Lahti and Steere combined more than 1,000 yards of passing this season and played both ways most of the time in leading the Tigers, along with departing seniors Killian Kuhn and Cecil Harvey. In addition, Taft will welcome the return of running back Rylan Fisher, who broke his collarbone early in the season.

“Overall, as a team we progressed well and came in and figured out what it is we need to do to be successful,” Mick said. “Actually, we did some really good stuff.” With a season behind it, Mick said his staff would concentrate now on refining technique and continuing the conditioning that allowed the Tigers to play full throttle through the final whistle this season. “It’s the little things that we must overcome,” he said. “We keep making mistakes, but we’re competing on the line, which we actually got a lot better at over the course of the season, and we have some good young kids coming back.”

Blazers to promote team on local tour JEREMY C. RUARK

The Portland Trail Blazers and Moda Health have teamed up for the “Rip City Relay,” a five-day journey that will see the ceremonial game ball travel up the Oregon Coast to the Moda Center (formerly the Rose Garden) in Portland in time for the team’s Nov. 2 NBA home opener. The relay, which began Oct. 29 in Coos Bay, will include a stop at 2 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31, at the D River State Recreation Site in Lincoln City. The ball will be walked, jogged and passed through stops in Reedsport, Waldport, Newport, Otter Rock, Lincoln City, Grand Ronde, McMinnville, Newberg and Beaverton en route to the Moda Center. Former Blazers play-byplay announcer Bill Schonely will be part of the Relay. Schonely was scheduled to take part in the Newport swing of the journey Oct. 30. NBA basketball fans might remember “Rip City, baby,” and “Bingo, bango, bongo,” just two of the many phrases used by Schonely in his near-three decade career with the Blazers, from the team’s launch in 1970 until 1998. He began his Blazer career with a similar journey around the state to generate interest in the team and sponsors for the franchise. “In 1970, we came to Lincoln City and other towns along the Oregon Coast to put together a radio network for the team,” said Schonely. “Now, the Blazers are having this tour again. It is a Rip City journey to celebrate the new team.” Aaron Grossman, the Trail Blazers’ communication coordinator, said the “Rip City Relay” is a bit different than the original Blazers coast trip made 43 years ago. “The Relay is similar in that we want to generate interest in the new team,” said Grossman. “But this is the first time we are taking a ceremonial ball up the Coast and into Portland. This Relay is also designed to let residents along the Coast know that they now have the opportunity to watch the Blazer games on Charter Cable.” Charter and Comcast SportsNet Northwest (CSNNW) have completed a distribution agreement for Charter to launch CSNNW to Charter customers throughout the Pacific Northwest, including cities along the Oregon Coast. The agreement includes broadcasts of Blazers games. But it is unlikely that Schonely will return as the voice of the Blazers. “I’d love to, but I am a little older now and it is someone else’s turn,” said Schonely. “I am fortunate just to be with the organization as a goodwill ambassador.” Schonely acknowledged that the Blazers have had their ups and downs, but he said the new team offers a fresh start. “Now the good times are ahead,” said Schonely. “The organization has a terrific group of players with a good style of play.” And like other Trail Blazers fans, Schonely is eager for the team to win another NBA championship. “I have a Blazer ring on my finger from when the team won its first NBA championship in 1977,” said Schonely. “I want to stick around for another one, but they better hurry.”

Oregon West Volleyball Standings

Another season has passed. Another year of anticipation awaits. The Taft High volleyball team concluded its 2013 season Tuesday, Oct. 22, with a 25-6, 25-18, 25-8 straight-set home loss to No. 1-ranked Cascade, underscoring just how far the Tigers must go to rebuild their program into the competitive force it was a little more than five years ago under coach Frank Napoleon. Tuesday’s loss marked the 57th straight against a fellow Class 4A school for Taft, dating to a victory Oct. 2, 2010, over La Pine of the Sky Em Conference. The Tigers’ conference losing streak extends much longer — almost six years, to Oct. 18, 2007, when Taft defeated Sweet Home as a member of the now-defunct Valco Conference. Two factors — the rebirth this season of middle-school sports at the school, and the reclassification next season

The Taft High soccer team dropped two conference road games by identical 6-0 scores last week as it struggled to relocate its offense late in the 2013 season. The Tigers, who were scheduled to conclude their regular season against Cascade on Tuesday, Oct. 29, at Voris Field (past deadline), fell to 2-10-1 overall and 0-9-0 in Oregon West Conference play with shutout losses Tuesday at Central and Thursday at Newport. “Both games this week, we didn’t come to play,” Taft coach Justin James said. “They were very physical matchups, but we just plain and simple got outplayed.” Taft’s junior varsity, participating this season with several girls intent on

prepared for the heat.” Kai Kelly scored Taft’s only goal off a corner kick from Cesar Fajardo. “Cesar played extremely hard at striker throughout the entire game,” Nicole James said. James also credited Kelly and Olivia Peabody for their play.

Blodgette, Herver pace Taft runners Juniors Sahari Herver and Grant Blodgette posted personal-best times Saturday, Oct. 26, at the Oregon West Cross Country Championships in Newport. Blodgette ran 18.16 and placed 21st overall, while Herver ran 21.49 and placed 17th. “These runners of mine are a band of don’t give up, flex your can-do muscles and get it done,” coach Cal Alsleben said. The Tigers did not post team scores in either the boys or girls competitions. Philomath won both the boys and girls titles. Freshman Chance Haun also finished in a career-best 18.26, while senior Olivia Barten was the second Taft girls runner to finish but missed posting an official time after the

meet’s timing mechanism malfunctioned. “She was running well, so could possibly have achieved her PR,” Alsleben said. Senior Samantha Brewer missed a PR by nine seconds but ground it out to the finish despite a side ache in 26:58, Alsleben said. Kendal Gile finished in 19.27, while fellow sophomore Adam Plummer came in at 20.52 after fighting the flu. “So, once again, individual runners ran for something more, the testing of their limits, putting their whole hearts into running harder to set new personal records,” Alsleben said. The Class 4A state championships are scheduled Saturday, Nov. 2, at Lane Community College in Eugene.

My Petite Sweet

A passion for cakes and cupcakes Jeremy C. Ruark

For the past seven years, Michelle Mausen has been mixing passion and sweetness to make cakes and cupcakes for folks in Lincoln County and along the Central Oregon Coast. “I have finally found my place in the world,” said Mausen, owner and operator of My Petite Sweet, who runs her business out of a small kitchen in The Eventuary in Lincoln City. “It all started as a joke,” said Mausen. “Someone asked me to make a wedding cake for them and I agreed, but I really didn’t know how to make a wedding cake. So I got online and taught myself what to do and I made my first wedding cake. I am self-taught. I started out doing wedding cakes and it just branched out from there.” As owner, baker and decorator, Mausen bases her success on 20 years of background and skill building in the restaurant industry. “This is where it’s at for me,” said Mausen. “It is fun to create. Serving somebody a plate of food is one thing, but being able to create a big sugar display with cakes or cupcakes is awesome.” You’ll see Mausen selling her sugar delights at various commu-

nity events, including high school games and most recently at the Lincoln City Chamber of Commerce Artober Brewfest. Mausen describes her cakes and cupcakes as deluxe. She lists at least 30 flavors on her website, from plain vanilla, to maple nut, to a dark chocolate cake enhanced with beer. “I will make any flavor under the sun,” she said. “I am always trying new stuff.” The price of the cakes starts at $25 and goes up from there depending on the design and complexity. “I think the most expensive cake I’ve made so far was a wedding cake for $800,” she said. Mausen also offers filled and unfilled cupcakes from $2 to $3 each, and holiday pies and cookies made in her kitchen in The Eventuary. “People hire me to do their Halloween caramel apples and Christmas cookies,” she said. “I do it all.” While her business is mainly catering, Mausen won’t turn away curious shoppers who peer in the backdoor of her kitchen.

Earth Abides By Ken McCormack

Reaching your peak You know how it is. You start out in the desert. There’s nothing except stickers and heat. The ground is scorched, with scattered clumps of sage and yucca. In the distance a peak looms. That’s where you are going. It’s high and far away. You can’t imagine ever getting there, but you set out anyway. You go upwards for a while, but the trail suddenly slopes down, away from the goal; and then, after a while, it heads back up again — like a rollercoaster. You can hear your own footsteps and heavy breathing. You see horny toads and jackrabbits — a tarantula and lizard. The trail is up and down. You know you are getting nearer the top when the plants start to change. You are getting into shrubs now, juniper and piñon. At night, you pull out your little camp stove and freeze-dried food, and eat, hopefully, with friends. But as you go, companions keep changing; some drop back and give up; others forge ahead and you never see them again. At night, you crawl into your sleeping bag and look up at a million stars. They seem eternal. It’s absolutely quiet, and you feel solid and close to earth. You’d like to stay here forever. But the next morning you are up, fixing coffee, granola and dried fruit. You take up your pack, a little lighter now. The surroundings start to change again, and you are into some bigger trees, ponderosa pine and fir. You cross a little stream, lined with yellow columbines, and fill your water bottles, and listen to rattlesnakes. At night you camp with different friends and sometimes alone — but you keep going. You look back down into the valley. You can hardly believe you have come so far. When you look ahead, the peak seems a little closer; the snow and glaciers glitter in the sun; the blisters are rubbing your toes, and the trees change again. You are in Aspen and Engelmann Spruce. You keep on hiking, down and up, and you get past tree line into the rocky tundra. A coyote runs past, and, looking back over his shoulder, laughs at you! But your pack is lighter and legs stronger; your lungs work hard down ravines and up along ridges of bare granite. Pretty soon, you are in the snow, as ice crunches beneath your feet. It’s like the North Pole; and the desert is a dim memory — when you meet this beautiful woman. She takes your hand, and you walk together up, towards the peak, all the way up, to the very top of the mountain. There you are; you made it. You stare into endless expanse of beauty. Overwhelming joy surges up like never before, and you just can’t stop laughing. “We made it. And where do we go from here?” The next morning you are up, and there is ice on your bag and your companion is gone; off in the distance, you see another peak, even higher than this one, and you know that is where she went; that is where you are supposed go, too. You sigh, a bit disappointed, and throw on your pack, and set out again, along the trail, and it finally dawns on you. What a relief! You sit on a rock. There is nowhere to go. You are already there. You always were there. You check your watch. It says “now.” Ken McCormack is a Neskowin resident and can be reached at kenmcc@

Newport Symphony to play Beethoven Perhaps the most famous piece of classical music ever composed will be the highlight of the next Newport Symphony Orchestra (NSO) concert, Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. The NSO’s upcoming program, “Tragedy and Triumph,” will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 3, at the Newport Performing Arts Center, 777 W. Olive St., in Newport. The concert will also feature works by the English composer Benjamin Britten. From the very beginning of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony – those famous and unmistakable first four notes – listeners will be treated to a powerful and dramatic musical performance. Beethoven’s masterpiece is filled with a variety of musical innovations that have thrilled audiences and influenced generations of latter composers. Concert-goers in Newport will be delighted as the orchestra, directed by Adam Flatt, digs lustily into the varied music, now menacing, now melodic, and driving toward a magnificent conclusion. The performance is sure to be a topic of conver-

‘Tragedy and Triumph’ • 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2 • 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 3 • Newport Performing Arts Center 777 W. Olive St. Newport sation among lovers of music on the Oregon Coast. In addition to the “Four Sea Interludes,” the orchestra will perform another orchestral excerpt from the opera, the “Passacaglia,” featuring NSO principal violist Shauna Keyes. Like the Symphony No. 5, Britten’s “Four Sea Interludes” traverse the spectrum of musical colors and emotions, as Britten depicts the sea in its various moods, from its violent storms to its serene beauty. Britten is the composer of some of the 20th century’s favorite classics, including, “The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra” and “Ceremony of Carols.” In programming the music from Grimes, NSO is honoring Britten’s centenary.

With Britten’s music, the Newport Symphony Orchestra continues its tradition of performing great classical music that takes the ocean as its subject and that celebrates what is unique about life on the coast. For the opera Peter Grimes, the composer wrote, “I wanted to express my awareness of the perpetual struggle of men and women whose livelihood depends on the sea.” Tickets for both performances can be purchased at the Newport Performing Arts Center box office, by phone at 541-265-ARTS, or online at Ticket prices are $34 and $20, or $10 for students with ID. This concert will be the second of the NSO’s 25th anniversary season on the Oregon Coast. The silver jubilee year will continue with concerts on Dec. 7-8, Jan. 25-26, and March 29-30. The Newport Symphony Orchestra is supported by the Sea Hag Restaurant and Lounge in Depoe Bay and various foundations, businesses, and individual donors. For more details, call 541265-2787.

Memories of World War II will be shared at the Driftwood Public Library on Nov. 10.

Three WW II teenagers to share memories at library Three World War II teenagers invite others with wartime experiences or who have an interest to join them at the Driftwood Public Library to share memories of life on the Central Oregon Coast and warfront. Pearl Harbor survivor Ed Johann and former Taft High students Joanne Kangiser Schneider and Lonnie Headrick will share memories from slides provided by facilitator G. Mick McLean. The program takes place at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10. Johann was a 17-yearold at Pearl Harbor. He had his tonsils removed on Dec. 6, 1941, and was supposed to have Sunday, Dec. 7, to recuperate. He was called to tender duty to rescue and recover sailors. He received the Navy Medal of Valor for his assistance at the sinking battleship U.S.S. Arizona. Serving on a Flying Boat tender, he later crisscrossed

Iron Bottom Sound at Guadalcanal delivering supplies to the shore. Kangiser Schneider helped with the moral aspect of the war by writing to 14 local boys. “Four of those boys were my brothers in the Navy,” said Schneider. “I was in Rose Lodge School, but we were told it would be closed, so the Army could use it as a barracks. The rumor was that the soldiers were wiring area bridges with dynamite in order to blow them up if the Japanese invaded here.” At the time, Headrick was 14, but still recalls the immediate drop in school enrollment. “Some folks panicked right away, fearing an invasion on our beaches,” said Headrick. “They packed up quickly. Others later moved to the valley for shipyard jobs. We stayed because my father

was a logger. Logging was quickly declared a priority for the war effort and loggers were locked into their jobs. Being a big kid, there was lots of work available but, I got to admit, one of my concerns was having enough boys in school to field competitive teams. But the boy shortage had its advantages when it came to dances.” The War Memories program is facilitated by McLean, who encourages participation from the audience and provides wartime posters and photos. For more details, contact Ken Hobson at Driftwood Public Library at 541-9961242 or Driftwood Public Library is located at 801 S.W. Highway 101 on the second floor of the Lincoln City City Hall building. The Lincoln City Cultural Center is located at 540 N.E. Highway 101.

The Lincoln City Cultural Center’s next Coffee Concert will be completely “coffeehouse,” featuring the Eugene-based singing and songwriting duo, Jackie & Jason. They’ll play a matinee at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 3. Admission is $10 and comes with a cup of Cape Foulweather Coffee and a pastry from Rockfish Bakery. Jackie Jae & Jason Cowsill will present an acoustic harmony program of voices and guitar. Jackie & Jason have been performing together for the past six years, building two bands and getting married along the way. With their rock ‘n roll band, “The Blue Valentines,” they keep crowds dancing to yesteryear favorites, while their original alt-Americana band, “Troupe Carnivàle,” transports the listener to a world of desert crossroads, traveling fairs and carnivals. In this special matinee performance,

“If you show up at my backdoor, I won’t turn you down,” she said. In fact, Mausen has somewhat of a backdoor trade with a few four-legged friends. “There are a few neighborhood cats that visit frequently,” she said. “A few of those cats think frosting is where it’s at.” Mausen won’t reveal her secret of making the cakes and cupcakes. “Seven years is a long time to try and get my recipes right and I found mine, but I will never share it,” she said. She began making cupcakes with leftover cake batter, but over the past few years the cupcakes have become quite popular. “Who knew cupcakes would get so trendy,” she said. “People that are 5 years old think they are awesome and people that are 95 years old think they are awesome. No plate or fork is required. You can just hold it and eat it. It’s easy and it makes you smile.” Mausen’s maple bacon cupcakes are some of the most popular items she produces. Her personal favorites are carrot cake and white cake. “I just love them,” said Mausen.

they’ll distill it all down to one guitar and two voices, presenting a harmonydriven blend of the past, present, and future. Their debut album “Skaal Krush” was released in May 2013. These Coffee Concerts, organized by Rita Warton, offer musicians of all ages a chance to perform while raising money for the center’s operating fund. Since the project began in 2012, Warton and her musical friends have raised more than $3,000 for the Cultural Center.

She moved to Newport in 2004, established an art co-op in Nye Beach, and is an active member of FOR ARTSAKE and the Oregon Coastal Arts Guild.

The Coastal Arts Guild (CAG) will welcome Frances VanWert to the guild’s luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Nov. 7, at the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts’ Newport Visual Arts Center at 777 W.

Heritage Month began as American Indian Day, which was first honored by the Boy Scouts of America and the Congress of the American Indian Association around 1912. The first

government to recognize American Indian Day was New York, where it entered the record in 1916. The first month dedicated to the heritage of the First Peoples was in November 1990, designated by a joint resolution of Congress and approved by President George W. Bush; it has been reissued each year since 1994. Native American Heritage Month is celebrated each November by museums, schools, historical sites, tribal governments and cultural institutions across the country, from the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., to the Bandelier National Monument in New Mexico.
