Project Homeless Connect offers hope for the needy

Jeremy C. Ruark

Eddie Chardrosky has lived in Lincoln City for 17 years. But for the past few months he and his wife have been homeless. “I wish I could be dead,” said Chadrosky. “This is no life.” Chardrosky and his wife lost their house after it was broken into and trashed. “My wife is staying at her mom’s and I am living on the

street,” he said. “Thanks to the cops, I have to move two or three times every night.” Chardrosky is a musician and house painter by trade, but has not been able to find work. “There are no bands that I can play with and there are too many house painters,” he said. Chardrosky and his wife joined other homeless at the seventh annual Project See HOMELESS, Page A3

The future of Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital and its effectiveness in providing needed medical services in Lincoln City will be outlined during a public meeting Friday, Oct. 11, The assessment report, by Ankron Moisan Architects, is intended to trigger community discussion about the future medical needs of the area. The report provides a listing of proposed and possible work, repair and upgrades and the attendant cost impacts. It also points out limiting factors such as soil conditions, electrical capacities and systematic life limiting considerations. There are also code and accreditation concerns. The evaluation confirms that there is a soil issue at the current hospital site. “If there was a major seismic disaster, it may affect the hospital,” said Terry Buggenhagen, North Lincoln Hospital District board member and secretary treasurer. The hospital had designed a project to enhance the emergency

Taft High sports prepped for move to 3A Class 4A Taft High, for years mired in an uphill battle to successfully compete against larger schools, moved closer to learning its destination in the Class 3A ranks in 2014 following an Oregon Student Activities Association committee evaluation of league realignments Monday, Oct. 7. Scheduled for release Wednesday, Oct. 9 (see, and pending approval from the OSAA’s executive committee on Oct. 28, Taft is expected to move from the six-team Oregon West Conference to the nine-team West Valley League next season. “Our petition to go down to 3A provides greater opportunity for our athletes to

Socioeconomic environment, the number of students on free or reducedprice lunch and a school’s competitive success over the span of its previous districting cycle are considered in addition to enrollment in assessing a team’s placement.

DLWID makes it case for grass carp solution The Devils Lake Water Improvement District (DLWID) will now have to wait to see if its lobbying effort before the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission (ODFWC) pays off. During a Commission meeting Friday, Oct. 4, in Newport, DLWID Lake Manager Paul Robertson outlined the district’s request to allow the reintroduction of grass carp into Devils Lake to improve the lake’s health. “The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Department is already working with the DLWID to find a solution,” said Bobby Levy, ODFWC chair. “Our recommendation is to see if they can find a solution that will work positively. We might have to do an emergency order to allow the grass carp in the lake, but that will be up to the department.” Robertson said he was satisfied with the Commis-


his is a major first step in the process.

- Paul Robertson, DLWID lake manager sion’s response. “The best we could ask for was to have the Commission direct staff to work with us further, which is what is happening” said Robertson. “This is a major first step in the process.” Grass carp have been used in Devils Lake beginning as far back 1986 to control invasive aquatic weeds. Since the last stocking in 1993, regulations have changed. Currently, only privately owned lakes of less than 10 acres are eligible. Devils Lake is 680 acres, is publicly

owned, and, as such, has multiple public access points and various ownerships. As a local government, the DLWID is also barred from the application process. The DLWID will be refining its application for the grass carp and working with ODFW staff to find a workable solution the Commission will accept. “This will take an indeterminate amount of time at this point, but ODFW Director [Roy] Elicker has assigned his Deputy Director, Curt Melcher, to this, so it would seem to be a priority for the department,” said Robertson. The DLWID is continuing other steps to improve the lake’s health. “Working on getting a sewer and a mandatory septic inspection program are the biggest, most important items in the works,” said Robertson. “Nutrient reduction is the key to restoration and the harmful algal bloom reduction. Shoreline restoration is

Shelter seeks information about abandoned pets In two separate incidents, a white rat and a grey speckled long hair dachshund were abandoned outside the Lincoln County Animal Shelter on Oct. 4. Staff discovered the rat, left in a cage, when they arrived for work at 8 a.m. The dachshund was abandoned between 10:30 and 1:15 a.m. in a dog crate. According to shelter officials, a person commits a Class B misde-

meanor when they leave a domestic animal or equine without providing minimum care. It is not a defense to abandon an animal at an animal shelter or veterinary clinic. “We are asking the community for any information they may have about the rat and dog who were abandoned at the animal shelter,” said Laura Ireland, Lincoln County Animal Shelter manager. “Animal abandonment is a serious crime, and it breaks our hearts that animals who trust people to care for them are simply left behind.”

The Lincoln County Animal Shelter is a managed admission shelter, meaning owners need to make an appointment to surrender a pet. No animal is turned away due to health or temperament, but the shelter does not euthanize animals to create space. Owned pets and healthy roaming cats are admitted as kennel space is available. Lost dogs and injured animals are accepted immediately. The owners of the two abandoned pets made no effort to contact the animal shelter. If they had, both animals could have been

admitted that day. The animal shelter’s public hours are noon to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday and appointments are available on Sundays, Mondays, and weekday mornings. To report any information you may have about either of the abandoned animals, call 541-265-6610 x 6. To see animals available for adoption, to volunteer, or to learn more about the Lincoln County Animal Shelter, visit us at 510 NE Harney St. in Newport, or go to www.LincolnCountySheriff. net/shelter.

OCCC seeks public comments in search for president The Board of Education at Oregon Coast Community College (OCCC) is beginning the process of hiring a college president. The Board said it believes this is one of the most important tasks it will undertake. As the search begins, the Board wants to consider what qualities and qualifications the community, faculty, staff and students believe the new president should have. The Board is inviting the public to help develop a list of qualifications by participating in an hour-long meeting later this month. Jon Carnahan, the college search consultant, will conduct the meetings. The discussion will be informal and designed to give all group members an opportunity to share the qualifications they believe are essential for the new president. For those who cannot be at the public forums, a survey will be soon available on-line on the front page at

Homeless Connect, held Oct. 4, at Newport’s Nazarene Church. The project offers a one-day connection to local social services. The homeless receive immunizations, health screenings, haircuts, non-perishable food and personal care items. Dozens of federal, state, county, nonprofit and faith-based organizations are present to provide outreach during the event. Chardrosky was one of 168 people who made their way from room to room at the church. Each room was designated with a social service such as haircuts and dental work. One room was set up as a small store offering personal hygiene items for the homeless. Stephanie Johnston and her husband and three children, ages 10, 4 and 2, also spent time at Project Homeless Connect. “We have been intentionally nomadic for the last 10 years,” said Johnsston. “It started out as a response to

Lincoln County Commissioner Bill Hall, a key coordinator of Project Homeless Connect, said he wasn’t surprised to see the number of families asking for help. “There is a lot of need out there in the community,” said Hall. “The number of families asking for assistance is a growing trend that is disturbing, but not surprising.” Hall said the homeless issue in Lincoln County is driven by economic distress. But Hall said there is hope for the homeless. “We are trying to expand programs and we are encouraging local groups and churches to provide information, periodic social services and referrals for the homeless,” he said. “We are working on both short – and long – term projects.” Hall said having the financial resources to meet the needs of the homeless in Lincoln County is challenging. “But also educating the community about the homeless is the other challenge,” said Hall. “There are a lot ofs

myths about who is homeless. While the single male on the street corner is the most visible, the most typical homeless person in this county is a single mother in her 30s who is working one or two jobs, but can’t make enough to keep a roof over her family.” Even though the homeless issue is challenging, Hall remains encouraged. “We have made a dent,” he said. “If we hadn’t pulled these efforts to get more housing and more services, the problem would be worse.” Hall said Project Homeless Connect has changed lives. “One man that came here last year connected with a church in Waldport and that helped him turn his life around,” said Hall. “But an even more touching example of the generosity of spirit is of a little girl that told her parents she wanted them to spend money on donations for the homeless and not for her birthday. She was that moved to want to help people who didn’t have as much as she had.”


the smallest team in the 4A Oregon West Conference to the largest in the 3A West Valley League (see accompanying graphic). Amity, Colton, Dayton, Gervais, Horizon Christian (Tualatin), Sheridan, Westside Christian (Lake Oswego) and Willamina would join Taft in the West Valley League. “The West Valley League is a strong and competitive league,” Dressler said. “I am excited to see how we match up against them next year.” North Marion (503) and Yamhill-Carlton (344) would replace Taft in the Oregon West. Central, previously the largest school in the Oregon West with an enrollment of 757, would step up to the Class 5A Mid-Willamette Conference. “I personally see very little downside to the move,” Taft girls basketball coach Dan Mock said. “… Student levels of interest and involvement in some of our athletic programs are low, even by smaller school standards. So, I think the move down will somewhat help to change the complexion of sports for us.” Acceptance of the petition to move down in class marks the culmination of a movement started last year with a series of sports summit meetings scheduled with coaches, players, parents, boosters and community members by former Principal Scott Reed. “I think it will be a benefit for almost all of our athletic teams,” cheer and dance coach Twyla Plummer said. “We have young teams that are playing against others twice our size in numbers and in body weight — especially in football and basketball.” “Frankly, I don’t care what division we are in,” Taft football coach James Mick said. “We’re probably still going to be small compared to most teams in 3A when it comes to physical size, but if it helps even out the playing field, I think it

will be good for us.” Travel time and expense will be relatively unchanged by the move, coaches and school officials said. “On a whole, the proposed travel does not seem to be impacted in either a positive or negative way,” Principal Majalise Tolan said. “The conferences are pretty comparable for travel time.” “I feel the change will be good for Taft,” volleyball coach Frank Napoleon said. “Traveling should be just over a hour to most of the schools. The competition will be great. There are some very good schools in 3A.” Tolan and Dressler said the Tigers would continue to maintain rivalries with schools such as Newport in nonconference play. “I am excited to match up with other schools and see how Taft athletics compare,” Dressler said. “We have great kids who work hard. It is a good move for Taft and I look forward to see how it plays out.” Mock warned that the anticipated move is not a cure-all, however. “As a community, we need to continuing working to build and grow our youth programs for children that are younger than high school age,” he said.

Green light in real life Heart to Heart By Kelli Westmark

It amuses me to watch kids play games like “Mother May I” and “Red Light, Green Light.” The child who says, “Mother, may I take three big hops?” And the “mother” counteracting, “No, you may take two big hops.” There always seems to be a child wanting to push the limit and slip in an extra hop or two, seeing if the “mother” will notice. And, the mother always does. Then, the five-hop culprit ends up crying, pouting, and usually not wanting to play the game anymore because “it’s not fair” when they didn’t get their way. Yet, it’s important for kids to learn to play by the rules. In real life, listening to the mother is part of learning safety. If mom says to stop, it might be because there is a car driving down the road or the

stove might be hot, or there might be some kind of danger ahead that the mom seeks to protect the child from. Setting boundaries with kids helps protect them from harm. We often don’t think about the boundaries God set up to protect us. For example, I am so thankful the ocean stops on the sand. It is a boundary God put into place that I appreciate as our city would not exist without it. Or there’s the boundary of the ozone layer, which is God’s UV protection for us not to be sunburned all the time or at least during our three months of sun. But truly, I am thankful for these boundaries I don’t stop and consciously think about on a daily basis, but are nonetheless important. In the Bible, God gave Moses the Ten Commandments. I like to

think of them as the Tender Commandments, for they were God’s way of protecting the people. For example, Pharaoh was demanding the Israelites work longer than eight-hour days, he wanted more production, more empires, more bricks. And God counteracted that, saying, every week take a day off. God knew we needed a day to rest, reflect, and remember all that God has done for us when He said in Exodus 20:8, “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.” And I really love that employers build in a day off every week, even when around here, we say, “Today is my Friday” when in reality it is Wednesday. The concept is still there, that God wants to give us rest and renewal. The kids seem to love it when I play “Mother May I” with them and I become the “mother.” When

they ask for two steps forward, sometimes I give them five steps forward. And they look at me amazed, as they weren’t expecting this generosity. God is loving and kind and wants to help us move forward in our lives, but God also wants to protect us from danger and sometimes says ‘no’ because He loves us. So, the next time you come to a red or yellow light in your life and aren’t happy with the color of the light, think about how that boundary is protecting you. And, who knows, you just might get green lights all the way through town. Rev. Kelli Westmark is the senior pastor at the Lincoln City Church of the Nazarene and the vice president of the North Lincoln County Ministerial Association. She can be reached at 541.994.2981 or

Cyber-bullying and your children Bullies are nothing new, but Internet accessibility has given rise to a new type of bully. It has created cyber-bullies, who bully others via electronic devices. Cyber-bullies use e-mail, instant messages, blogs, chat rooms, and social networking sites as well as cell phone text messages, and photos to harass their victims. Cyber-bullies utilize the Internet for the following: • Send insulting messages • Spread rumors • Post embarrassing photos • Pose as someone else and send messages supposedly from the victim • Share someone’s secrets online • Threaten the victim and make him or her live in fear • Exclude their victim from an online group Who is affected by cyber-bullying? Middle –school and high-school aged youngsters are the most likely to be affected. Your child may be a victim and not tell you. Or, your child may be a cyber-bully. Why do kids cyber-bully? Children become cyber-bullies for the same reasons they bully in person. It makes them feel impor-

grades, lack of interest in friends, school or other activities, trouble sleeping, more or less interest in the computer or cell phone. What can parents and guardians do about cyber-bullies? • Talk to your children. Tell them to let you know if anyone is being a cyber-bully. If someone is, have your child save all communications from that person, including emails, Internet Messages (IMs), and text messages. • Report incidents to the Internet or Cell Phone provider, your child’s school and/ or police if you fear your child is in danger. • Find out how to block the cyber-bullies e-mail address or phone number, or change your child’s online information. • Note that filtering software

cannot prevent cyber-bullying. What can your children do? • If one of your children receives a hurtful message, he or she needs to tell you about it, but not send a message back. Responding negatively to the cyberbully, or forwarding the hurtful message on to others, makes your child a cyberbully as well. • Avoid web sites where cyberbullying occurs. • To keep others from being hurt, your children should report any instances of someone they know being cyber-bullied.

board has not ruled out the option of building a new hospital at a different location in Lincoln City that would best address community availability and easer of transport. According to Buggenhagen, the biggest challenge facing the hospital board will be funding. “We will need to consider available funding sources, including taxes, gifts, grants, loans or changes in financial support for the hospital,” said Buggenhagen. “There is no fund we can dip into and pull out enough dollars to fix the entire current facility or fund a new one.” He said community members need to take part in developing the hospital’s future.

“The community needs to speak up and take a direction and make a stand for what they want and back it up with various forms of financial support,” said Buggenhagen. He encouraged community members to also consider the impact of tsunamis, earthquakes, massive fires or other possible natural disasters and how the hospital can best serve the region during such disasters. The community meeting to review the hospital evaluation report is scheduled for 8:30 a.m., Friday Oct. 11, in the Health Professionals Education Center on the Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital campus at 3043 NE 28th St. in Lincoln City.

As of Oct. 8, Lincoln City Police had not received any reports of the bogus money being passed at local businesses that might be linked to the latest reports. Police Sgt. Jeffery Winn said a $100 counterfeit bill was reported at the Chinook Winds Casino Resort on Oct. 1. “But it is not usual to find counterfeit money because they are going though such a volume there,” said Winn. “We don’t have any link that this is connected with the $10 and $20 dollar counterfeit money reports.” Winn urged businesses to take precautions and look carefully at all the money and checks they accept.

department. But through the evaluation process, the board has learned the emergency systems support was not of sufficient capacity to handle the additional demand. “Therefore that project is on hold,” said Buggenhagen. According to Buggenhagen, the district has had a well performing hospital since 1967. The hospital was designed as a critical access hospital in 2001. “Samaritan Health Systems is doing an admirable job operating the facility given limitations of community size, service area, population service needs, and available finances, said Buggenhagen. “It is impossible in a community of our size, and given the community’s economics, to provide all the various types of medical services. Since the hospital facility is aging and maintenance and repair costs continue to increase, the community needs to be aware of possible and available options.” He said the assessment would assist in giving the community a “game plan” for the next steps for maintaining a critical care hospital in Lincoln City. The hospital board brought in a team of contractors and engineers last spring to walk through the facility and evaluate what they saw as necessary improvements. After reviewing the contractors’ and engineers’ reports and going through a legal bid process, the hospital board hired Ankron Moisan Architects to make the final assessment. Buggenhagen said the

Dangerous flares found on beach, one detonated

The Depoe Bay Fire District immediately cordoned off the object and contacted Oregon State Police for assistance. The U.S. Air Force Explosive Ordinance Disposal team was called from Portland to respond to destroy the device. With assistance from Oregon State Parks, the area was secured until the USAF arrived on scene. The marine marker was then taken to a remote area in Gleneden Beach and detonated. (See video of the detonation at During the incident, area businesses and residents were notified of the pending detonation by a reverse 911 call. Officials encourage anyone finding the flares to call 911 or notify park rangers in the area and provide clear, exact locations, using local landmarks, beach access number signs, or even GPS coordinates from a smart phone or handheld GPS.

Two phosphorus flares that washed up on beaches in Lincoln County and one in Lane County over the past several days have promoted a warning from the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. Park rangers are encouraging beach visitors not to touch the objects, but to call 911 so the devices can be safely removed. One flare washed up near Gleneden Beach, and another near Beverly Beach, and one south of Florence around Oct. 2. All three were reported to state park staff and removed. The flares contain solid phosphorus, which can cause irritation or a chemical burn when it comes in contact with skin. The flares are commonly used by the military and sometimes fall from aircraft or watercraft. The flares are typically cylinders 12 to 18 inches long. Not all contain chemicals, but it’s safe to assume they do. They should not be touched or moved without proper precautions. The flare that was discovered at Gleneden Beach turned out to be a marine location marker — a buoyant device designed to be released from helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft to indicate position in the sea. Officials said the device was potentially harmful because many of the markers do not fully expend all of the phosphorus they contain, and can sometimes spontaneously reignite when the marker dries out. The device emits a high intensity yellow flame and white smoke for 13.5 to 20 minutes.

Tigers fall to No. 1-ranked Warriors Taft junior quarterback Pete Lahti connected with senior wide receiver Seth Steere for two touchdowns for the Tigers, who scored on a 10-yard pass while trailing 41-0 with just 13 seconds left in the opening half, and again on a 53-yard with 3:54 to play in the game. “Considering the fact they have some really good cover guys, some really, really good defensive players, we threw the ball really well,” said Mick, who is in his first season as Taft coach. Two of Philomath’s eight touchdowns came on passes, while the Warriors’ running game countered with three scoring runs of 50 yards or more and another of 31 to drop the Tigers to 2-4 overall and 0-2 in league play. “We’re not giving up,” Mick said. “We’re learning to compete. When you’re playing this high a level of competition, where we’re having some success and wanting to compete, it’s a bonus for us to play teams like that.” Mick emphasized the team

Taft High coach James Mick was well aware of the status of Philomath’s top-rated football team entering Friday night’s Oregon West Conference road game against the Warriors, but wasn’t quite sure how his team would react. “I don’t know what our expectations were as a team coming out,” he said, “but we kind of came out a little bit slow, spotted them a few points, and you really can’t expect to do that against a team like that.” Almost before the engine cooled on the team bus, Philomath had stormed to a 35-0 first-quarter lead, went up 41-7 by halftime, and cruised to a 5514 victory to remain unbeaten at 6-0 and in first place in the Oregon West. “Philomath is a pretty good team,” Mick said, “but we weren’t completely inept. Keep in mind they’re the No. 1 team in the state.”

Taft drops two league games By Jim Fossum

Senior Ian Williams continued to provide offensive punch by scoring in two more games, but the Tigers dropped two Oregon West Conference home matches last week at Voris Field. Williams scored Taft’s only goal in a 3-1 defeat to Central on Tuesday, Oct. 1, and another in a 4-2 defeat to Newport on Thursday, Oct. 3. “We played tough and

had a great defense,” Taft coach Justin James said of Tuesday’s loss to the Panthers. “I feel we will have a great chance to beat them next time we play.” James said Angel Cortez “played an amazing game as goalie,” with 13 saves behind an “extremely aggressive game.” He said Sheyssa Ortiz continued to be a major addition to the defense since being elevated from junior varsity. Meanwhile, Williams and Chase Dillion each

scored a goal in a physical loss Thursday against Newport. Leading 2-1, James said he should have stacked his defense to protect the lead, but kept pushing upfront trying unsuccessfully to add to its cushion. “We ended up getting beat by a lucky corner kick and a fast break,” he said. James credited the hustle and aggressiveness of Williams and Dillion, who chose to remain in the game despite a knee injury. “Going forward, I feel that our defense has really stepped up and we just need to work on being more aggressive up front,” he said. Meanwhile, in junior varsity play, which the Tigers are using to help develop and reinstitute a girls team next season, Taft fell 11-0 Tuesday to Central and 2-0 Thursday to Newport. Playing against boys “twice our size,” Taft coach Nicole James watched as the Tigers lost two girls (Keyonna Williams and Cassandra Rousselle) to concussions (they are expected to return this week) against the perennially powerful Panthers. “It’s been tough having our girls play against boys,” she said. “I was very proud of my team, though, for staying in there and fighting so hard, even though the chips were stacked against us from the get-go.” James, Justin James’ wife, cited Emily Rodriguez for her play in goal in the second half of the lopsided loss.


Taft’s Jeremia Zalamea. left, and Mason Aguirre, trailing the play, fight for possession in Thursday’s 4-2 loss to Newport at Voris Field. “I was very proud of her for stepping up and doing something she has never done,” James said. She also cited Alicia Reyes and Daisy Brenner for their play. “Overall, my team showed a lot of heart, staying in there and fighting until the very end,” she said. James said she was particularly pleased with her team’s effort on Thursday in a much closer shutout defeat to the Cubs. “Walking away after this game made me realize why

I love to coach so much,” she said. “My team played incredible. Everything that we have been working towards all season came together.” Missing several players due to injury, Taft had few players who were able to rest. “They were tired and never gave up,” said James, who moved Jon Bickerdyke out of goal to midfield, where he took three shots. James also credited Brandon Hoffman, Cesar Fajardo, Kia Kelly, Bobbijo Cross,

Mills Ace Hardware wins in championship game shootout Mills Ace Hardware outscored Mazatlan Restaurant in a penalty kick shootout Saturday, Oct. 5, at Voris Field to advance to the Division I (11-13 years old) championship game in the Lincoln City Parks & Recreation Department’s Youth Soccer League. Mauricio Rivas scored two goals and Edson Fuentes and William Brooks one each in regulation that countered two goals by Mazatlan’s Alain Avila and one each from Connor Taylor and Aaron Galvan.

Jimmy Brandes and Mikayla Kingston for their play. “This game was a huge success for us, especially after such a tough one on Tuesday,” James said. “I think it really showed our team how much talent they have and that it might actually be possible for us to win a game this season despite us being half boys and half girls against teams of all boys.” Taft was scheduled to play at Cascade, Tuesday, Oct. 8 (past deadline).

Survival of Theatre West



Jeremy C. Ruark

ive theatre is a dying art.

“Live theatre is a dying art,” said Danny Roberson, as he prepared stage props for Theatre West’s latest production, A Ghost of a Chance. But Roberson, a volunteer at the theatre, and a small dedicated band of other community members, are determined to keep live theatre alive in Lincoln City. Dennis Gibson, Theatre West treasurer, calls the group family. “It is a group effort and it is like a family,” said Gibson. “For the resources we have, we put on a really good show. People find it hard to believe this backwater community theatre puts on such good productions.” Gibson acknowledges keeping live theatre going in Lincoln City is hard work “There is a handful of people that do much of the work and we are always looking for volunteers,” said Gibson. The Association of University Women established Theatre West in the mid 1970s. “For a long time we had no building,” said Gibson. Eventually, the theatre moved to its current location, on Highway 101 in the Nelscott district. “The building started out as a NAPA Auto parts store, then became an antique store,” Gibson said. The owner of the antique store, former child Broadway performer Jack Coyne, donated the store for the theatre to use as long as he could live in the back of the building. Coyne died in 2001. But today, Theatre West is showing its age. “It is an old, deteriorating building and we are busy keeping it from falling down,” said Gibson. “There is no heat in the actors’ waiting room, so we shiver backstage in the winter even though we do have a few portable heaters.” A few years ago, the Theatre West board of directors began developing plans for a new

They’re all flat and funny “Mommm,” our teenage daughter Emilee wailed as Mom got home from work. “I tried making snickerdoodle cookies and they just didn’t come out – they’re all flat and funny and taste, like, weird.” “Well, let’s go through the recipe step by step.” Emilee had followed the recipe carefully until they came to the cream of tartar. “Oh, Mom, I used up the rest of the tartar sauce.” Mom: “I just bought a new tin of cream of tartar and the recipe only calls for 2 teaspoons. How in the world could you have used it up?” Emilee fished the Jake’s Tartar Sauce bottle out of the garbage. “It’s supposed to be cream of tartar powder, honey, from the spice tin,” Mom said gently. “I guess your version does explain the little pickle flecks in the cookies.” Author’s Note: Grown Teenage Daughter Now Accomplished Cook

Aunt Lisa’s Snickerdoodle Cookies For Cookies 2-3/4 cups flour 1 cup shortening 1/2 cup sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons Cream of Tartar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking soda For Topping ½ cup sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon in separate bowl. Cream the shortening with the eggs, adding sugar and Cream of Tartar. Add the flour and mix thoroughly, then roll into balls. Roll the balls in a dry sugar-cinnamon mix and then flatten with the palm of your hand. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 5-6 minutes at 400 degrees.

Harvest PumpkinCranberry Cookies 1 ½ cups flour ¾ cup mashed pumpkin 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1 teaspoon ginger ½ teaspoon cloves 1 teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon salt 4 tablespoons melted butter 1 cup sugar 1/4 molasses ½ cup dried sweetened cranberries ½ cup chopped pecans (optional) Mix all the dry ingredients and set aside. Mix pumpkin, butter, molasses well, and then incorporate the dry ingredients. Drop by spoonfuls on the greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Do Not over-bake. A lovely cream cheese icing with a hint of nutmeg gives another light autumn touch to cookies, although it does add the calories! Makes about 3 dozen.

Cream Cheese Icing 8 ounces cream cheese room temperature 6 tablespoons unsalted butter softened or room temperature 1 cup powdered/confection sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ¼ teaspoon nutmeg Using an electric mixer cream together the cream cheese, the butter and vanilla. When thoroughly mixed, add in the powdered sugar and the nutmeg. Icing will be thick, but should not drip off cookies, or if you prefer add a little drizzle of whipping cream/half &half or (milk if you must) to make a thinner consistency. With the holidays right around the corner and the many rich dishes we all indulge in, keep in mind that you can substitute low fat cream cheese, low fat margarine and skim milk for thinning. But, you will sacrifice flavor and texture. Bon Appetit! Everett Cutter and wife Sally live in Gleneden Beach. If you have a favorite“kitchen calamity” or recipe toshare:eecutter@

The event is free. Tucked in the forest near Cascade Head, the Sitka Center is described by operators as an ideal location for writers-and artists-in-residence to withdraw from the distraction of daily life, finding the solitude needed to push through their creative boundaries and chase their own artistic pursuits. The Show and Tell is an opportunity for the residents to share their work with the local community. Meet the artists and writers, hear them present a brief description of their work, and learn how they plan to use their residency time at Sitka. Linda Hutchins’ work is informed by the lifelong study of textile structures, an engineering mindset, and memories of sailing beyond the sight of land. Her work dissolves distinctions between site-specific installation, performance, and traditional drawing; honors include fellowships from the Oregon Arts Commission, grants from the Regional Arts and Culture Council.

Glass artist Shluka featured at Chessman Gallery Theatre West


This art piece, called Black Orchid, is among the collection by Kevin Shluka to be displayed beginning Oct. 11 at the Chessman Gallery.

to the door of maestro Dino Rosin, who became Shluka’s friend and mentor. Rosin is a glass master of 50 years who collaborated with greats such as Picasso and Chagall. His wholesale approach to sculpture in glass gave Sh-

luka the inspiration to move beyond simple glassblowing and evoke his own spirit in the sculpture of the difficult material. Shluka found that the lush and oversized environment of the Oregon wilderness has shaped his art as much as the misted and dramatic scapes of Venice, or the arid and expansive badlands of New Mexico. His work captures the life that emerges from the verdant vastness of the Oregon Coast. See more of Shluka and his mobile glass studio at http://kevinshluker.blogspot. com/. The Chessman Gallery, named for the late arts advocate P.J. Chessman, is located inside the LCCC, 540 N.E. Highway. 101. For information, call 541-994-9994 or visit

For the 10th series, the library has asked some of its favorite mystery writers from past years to return: Carola Dunn will open this year’s series Thursday, Oct.10. The author of The Daisy Dalrymple series, set in 1920s England, Carola is a native of The UK but has lived elsewhere, most recently Eugene, since she graduated from Manchester University. She is also the author of three Cornish mysteries set around 1970 and of 32 Regency romances. The series continues on Oct.17 with a visit from international bestselling writer Phil Margolin. The author of 18 suspense novels and legal thrillers, beginning with Heartstone in 1978 and most recently this year’s Sleight of Hand, Margolin was a practicing attorney in Portland until 1996, when he took up writing full time.

building “We own two lots immediately south of the current facility,” said Gibson. “We have gone through concept designs that would give us a bigger stage and an area that seats 100 people. We would add better lighting and more room back stage, but we are limited by the City as how large the theatre can be. We will need 25 off-street parking spaces.” Gibson said the estimated $2 million construction plan would also include bathrooms for the actors. “Right now, we are using one of the rest rooms to get from the actors’ room to the stage,” said Gibson. “So, if someone is using the bathroom, that means we can’t get people on or off the stage in a timely manner.” Gibson said when the economy went into recession the new theatre plan was shelved. Still, Gibson is hopeful a new theatre can be built. “It’s a plan that is entirely possible, but we have no timeline to build yet,” said Gibson. While the wait continues for a new theatre, the shows go on with new actors joining the effort to keep community productions alive. Trevor Schnabel plays the part of Chance, the ghost in the latest Theatre West production, A Ghost of a Chance. It is his first attempt as an actor with the local theater group. “I have always wanted to do this, to be on stage,” said Schnabel. “But it is much harder than I ever thought it was going to be.” One element of acting Schnabel enjoys the most is the pretending. “Just doing that and something that I have never done before is a blast,” said Schnabel. Wes Ryan, Lincoln City city councilor and director of A Ghost of a Chance, said it is important for Theatre West to offer people the opportunity to be on stage. “Art is more than pictures, sculptures and music,” he said. “Acting is another

element of art, and art is important to the character and fabric of the community. I can’t imagine living in a community that didn’t have some form of art going on.” According to Ryan, the people involved define the survival of small theatre. “They can be very static becomes no one gets involved and you have the same people doing the same thing. Many small theatres have a danger of doing that,” he said. “The trick is to find a new person, like Trevor, who has never done this and bring them in and get them excited and get them working.” Ryan said Theatre West would not have survived if it didn’t have community support. He is hopeful more people will see the value of

Glass artist Kevin Shluka will showcase a collection of glass sculpture reminiscent of botanical wonders in a presentation called “Orchidaze… and other assorted manipulations” at the Lincoln City Cultural Center’s Chessman Gallery from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 11, through Monday, Nov. 4. The collection will be accentuated with a display of real orchids grown by Kathleen Emmerson. Shluka has traveled far and wide in his search for both a home and a style of glass art that is his own. He grew up in California’s Silicon Valley, studied glassblowing at the Tesuque Glassworks near Santa Fe, N.M., then decided to pursue his education from the masters of Murano, an island in the Venetian Lagoon known for a millennium of history in the art of glassblowing.

Deep sand causes concern at beach entrance

Police and area residents continue to warn motorists about the dangers of getting stuck in the sand at the bottom of the 15th Street beach entrance hill. On June 7, while on a water rescue call to the beach just off the 15th Street entrance, North Lincoln Fire & Rescue District #1 water rescue crews had to maneuver their emergency vehicles past a vehicle stuck in the sand at the bottom of the hill.

water before the rescue team arrived. It appeared that the person was alright. Gretchen Wynne lives on 15th Street and is so concerned about vehicles becoming stuck in the sand; she placed a cardboard sign at the hill entrance that reads, “Caution Deep Sand.” JEREMY C.

Two small grass fires last week in the Lincoln City area are a reminder of an early fire season and the danger looming this summer along the Oregon Coast, according to fire officials. Both fires occurred June 5. The first fire charred about an acre of grass 500 feet from Highway 101 along Three Roads Road northeast of Lincoln City. The cause of the blaze is undetermined, as is the second blaze that

Even though Crestline Elementary School is hundreds of miles away in Vancouver, Wash., a Feb. 3 fire that

destroyed the school has promoted Taft Elementary School third-graders to lend a few helping hands. Taft student Kahliah Moroyoqua, 9, said the students took action when they learned about the Crestline School fire. “We felt bad that the school burnt down,” said Moroyoqua. “We wanted the kids at that school to feel better, so we got them books to read.” As a part of the Lincoln County

School District project SEAL (Students Engaged in Authentic Learning), Taft teachers selected a project that was of interest and brainstormed ideas for solutions to the problem. “As teachers, our task was to engage students in the project using innovative strategies,” Taft third-grade teacher Micky Willoughby said. “When Crestline

Mortician’s victims paid deeply for losses JIM FOSSUM The News Guard

In undoubtedly the most documented, publicized and controversial police case in Lincoln City history, corpses were abused and left unidentified when several unembalmed, decomposing bodies were eerily discovered in a local mortician’s chapel in the fall of 1984. But who were the real victims? Perhaps they were the friends and family of the bodies then-34-year-old Dale Patrick Omsberg was paid to cremate at Pacific View Memorial Chapel at 560 S.W. Fleet St., where The Eventuary now stands. Many cite severe financial woes as the reason behind Omsberg’s grisly crimes of nearly three decades ago, but the man who oversaw the case, retired Lincoln City

Find us online at:

police chief Mike Holden, isn’t buying that. “Something,” he said, “was amiss with the man.” Omsberg’s death at age 63 last month from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Myrtle Beach, S.C., following an alleged sexual assault seems to confirm suspicions that the man who served just 23 days of a 30-day sentence with time off for good behavior struggled with demons no one can possibly explain. Ironically, a psychiatric evaluation of Omsberg, which then-District Attorney Ulys Stapleton said factored into his negotiations with Omsberg attorney Stephen Lovejoy, indicated the defendant “would probably commit suicide if sentenced to the penitentiary.” Omsberg’s defense argued their client’s “negligent management” in accepting nominal fees for those in need failed to generate enough

SPECIAL REPORT income to overcome his debt at the mortuary. In a written statement read by Lovejoy to reporters after his client’s sentencing, Omsberg said, “How does one apologize for such a terrible thing that has happened,

At the time, the only state regulations on crematories were Department of Environmental Quality standards for air pollution. The Legislature has since required that bodies be diligently tracked through paperwork and a stainlesssteel tag. Other states followed suit, but efforts of the locally led “Missing in America” campaign brought about a measure of closure for the victims of the gut-wrenching tragedy that left their loved ones’ whereabouts unknown. The repercussions led to a demand to alter what was perceived as an indifferent bureaucracy and reshaped the justice system as it pertains to the funeral industry. Omsberg pleaded guilty to 60 misdemeanor charges of theft, attempted theft and abuse of a corpse and was

except to say that I am truly sorry. I didn’t want it to happen and make no excuses. I hope and pray that you will forgive me.” Many did, including Diane Bassett, whose husband’s body was found Oct. 19, 1984, under a sheet on a table in the mortuary’s garage. “I pray for him and that he’ll be able to put his life back together again and that his wife and two little boys can do the same,” she said following the sentencing. “But it is almost as though you have to live the death again. I think some of us will never get over it.” Bassett was a leading member among a group of people who wouldn’t let the case die like their relatives had. She successfully helped lead a movement to get the Oregon Legislature to pass more stringent rules on crematoria in its 1985 session.
