City launches efforts to comply with ADA Jeremy C. Ruark The News Guard

Slow down, Depoe Bay As the City of Depoe Bay moves ahead with amending its transportation plan, city officials are working with the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) to adjust the speed limit along portions of U.S. Highway 101 that travels directly through the heart of the city. “An ODOT study shows 70 percent of motorists drive faster than the posted speed limits along Highway 101 through Depoe Bay,” said Carol Connors, Depoe Bay mayor. “We wanted to do something right away for pedestrian safety.” See Page A2

There are two critical elements that have to be answered as Lincoln City moves ahead to address new accessibility standards adopted by the federal government. “The costs of the projects and what specifically have to done are yet to be determined,” said Stephanie Reid, Lincoln City engineer. Reid said the combination of what the city needs to do and of new federal ac-

cessibility standards developed in 2010 and adopted in March of this year by the federal government have triggered the new efforts in Lincoln City. “We need to ensure that accesses to all programs and services offered by the city are available to people with disabilities and to everyone else,” said Reid. “So we are going back and reviewing all that the city offers to see what it will take to bring the programs, services and the buildings into full compliance within the time frame.”

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was first enacted in 1990. The Act was amended in 2008 and is now known as the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA). It is a Federal Law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in employment, public accommodations and state and local government operations and services. Reid said the city took See ADA, Page A2

Mattila looks ahead as Depoe Bay’s mayor-elect



Jeremy C. Ruark The News Guard At 74, A.J. Mattila is starting a new adventure. It is an adventure based on his love for Depoe Bay and as he says: “To give the town back to the people.” Mattila was elected as Depoe Bay’s new mayor in the Nov. 6 General Election. According to the Lincoln County Elections Office, Mattila defeated incumbent Carol Connors by 422 to 336 votes. “The vote was a pretty strong statement of what people A.J. in Depoe Bay want,” Mattila said Mattila. “They were not happy with the way things were going.” As the owner of F/V Moonlighter and a commercial fisherman, Mattila admits that he faces a learning curve. “I have no experience in any of this,” he said. “Had it not been for my concern and love for this community I would not have run for this office.” But Mattila is quick to point out that he will do what it takes to be an effective mayor for Depoe Bay. “I intend to do whatever it takes to make this work,” he said. Mattila said it is vital for Depoe Bay to continue to support services for area children including working to gain stable funding for the Neighbors For Kids

Meet Taft’s Culinary Club

JIM FOSSUM The News Guard

As classical music enthusiasts gathered to hear a 14-year-old piano prodigy perform in a majestic million-dollar seaside setting, busy teenagers clamored in the kitchen. And they weren’t slapping together peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. As the Oregon Coast Chamber Music Society (OCCMS) assembled in the home of one of its leading members, five students prepared the food and drink for the afternoon’s festivities as part of their participation in Taft High 7-12’s Culinary Club. “They do a wonderful job preparing, presenting and serving delicious food,” said Laurel Young, OCCMS president, who said the group’s only compensation are tips and a free concert. “We always get positive feedback from our audience regarding the work these students do.” Dressed professionally in white chef jackets, the students, led by senior team captain Alexander Getty, set out some of their specialty dishes, such as an olive and white bean pesto crustini, bruchetta on sourdough, dill deviled eggs, meat and flavored cream cheese wraps, fruit kabobs, herbed cheese logs, scones and cookies. “When I came into this program, I already knew I enjoyed cooking, but very quickly I discovered I loved it,” Getty said. “This class opened my eyes to the merits of working on a small, close-knit team, leaving me able to lean on the support of others when needed, and provide the same service to them.” See FOOD, Page A2

Territorial Sea Plan workshops end, state to review, submit plan Anthony Rimel The News Guard

Lincoln City and other coastal communities are keeping a close eye on what happens next with the State of Oregon’s large update to its Territorial Sea Plan. The project began in 2008, designed to provide a framework for potential offshore wave, tide and wind power devices at sites along the Oregon coast. Although the process has spanned years, the state’s Territorial Sea Plan Advisory Committee (TSPAC) and Ocean Policy

Advisory Committee (OPAC) are now close to completing the plan. During the spring, the state held public forums about the plan for managing the territorial sea, which stretches out three miles from land along Oregon’s entire coastline. The plan included maps of the territorial sea with data overlays mapping uses of the waters the state wants to protect, such as valuable marine habitat and fishing grounds. However, at public forums many commentators said the process ignored the

importance of the natural beauty of the coast. Paul Klarin, who has been working on the territorial sea plan update for the Department of Land Conservation and Development, gave a presentation about how the plan has been updated to try to address these concerns at public forums held in Newport, Tillamook, North Bend, and Astoria between Nov. 1 and Nov. 8. “There was a lot of response about how we protect recreational use and The WindFloat prototype, launched offshore of Portugal.

Getty joined his school’s culinary class as a freshman, taking the Hospitality Tourism and Management course, where he learned cooking and catering basics. Since advancing to the full-fledged class, he has become captain of the catering and competition team. The club caters for a variety of regular clients and also does one-time jobs. Occasionally, it competes in cook-offs put on by the city and other organizations. It also runs an in-school business selling coffees and fruit smoothies of its own creation to students and staff. Few, however, enjoy time spent in the kitchen like Getty. “I have spent massive amounts of time pouring my heart into my cooking, spending 16-hour days in the kitchen, prepping, cooking and cleaning, all to feed a group of people who may never know my name, but loving every second of it,” he said. Like Getty, some of the 13 students in the club plan to pursue culinary arts in the hopes of making it a career. Knowing he belongs in the kitchen, Getty plans to graduate from a culinary institute and ultimately


Colleen Stallard puts a dish in the oven at a recent function. own a catering or restaurant business. “This class has shown me that I have a talent for leadership that I was unaware I possessed,” said Getty, who has led the club to numerous service contracts and to victory in both local and state competitions. Under the tutelage of first-year Taft teacher Julia Westbrook, students in the culinary arts program

and its club participate in catering community events. Students learn the basics of the business, including money handling, operating an espresso machine, sanitation and creating a quality product. Each student is required to have a current food handler’s card to participate in the program, which spans over two years. Students who complete the first year become leaders in the

kitchen and have the opportunity to play a more active role in the budget, ordering and receiving process. Students also have the chance to compete in workforce industry culinary competitions such as ProStart, Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, and SkillsUSA, which stage national competitions and award scholarships to top students. So far this year, Taft

students have worked in a variety of popular local events, including Let There Be Arts, the Lincoln City Cultural Center Gala, Oyster Cloyster and the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts. “Some students move onto a culinary school, while others are interested in cooking for fun,” Westbrook said. “Whatever the reason, the program provides transferable skills, including leadership, problem-solving and working as a team.” As teacher, it is Westbrook’s role to guide and support students and provide instruction. “But I also allow students to make mistakes so they can learn from them,” said Westbrook, who helps organize the catered events, including staff lunches and espresso. Young said the group considered dietary restrictions such as low fat and low sugar for the recent piano concerto at her Depoe Bay home. That won’t be the case when students practice their baking skills and piping and decorating techniques making sugar and gingerbread Christmas cookies to be sold during winter break. The club prepares a variety of other, more exotic, foods, too, expanding its menu as

requests dictate. “It just depends on what the event calls for,” Westbrook said. “Sometimes, students are simply asked to be servers, which is a great experience for first-year culinary students to see the process for front-ofthe-house employees and practice customer-service skills.” Westbrook said the group tries to charge a competitive rate so that it doesn’t undercut other businesses while teaching students about cost control. Their work generates a small profit that goes back into the culinary program, she said. “I personally love this program and would be devastated to see it fail because of lack of participation, budget cuts or a lack of administrator support,” Getty said. To achieve optimum service, Westbrook said the club seeks donations of kitchenware and utensils in good shape — anything from food processors to saucepans to measuring spoons, and other catering items such as hotel pans and serving utensils. E-mail Westbrook at if interested in donating to the club.

action to meet the original ADA standards when they were first adopted. To comply with the new standards the city has budgeted $81,000 for general consulting assistance and is in the process of hiring a firm to help determine what work needs to be done. “The standards tell us that from here on out you will do it this way,” said Reid. “But it’s not really black and white. It involves levels of judgment calls. That’s what this plan will do. It will help us identify what’s not up to standard, what will it take to bring it in compliance, help us prioritize that work and create a reasonable time frame to get the work done.” The ADA work is likely to impact just about anyone that uses Lincoln City services, according to Reid. The plan will review the full range of Lincoln City services including recreation and park sites, parking lots, beach accesses, public view points, restrooms, and all city owned buildings and city programs will also be evaluated.  “We may need to change the way people access city services and programs,” said Reid. “The idea is not to have this become burdensome. The idea is to be sure that what we build from here on out is compliant or we do the best we can to make it compliant.” Reid said the plan is to update the city’s existing accessibility work and to evaluate existing and future programs and facilities. “We are trying to get ahead and be proactive and not wait until we get a complaint,” Reid said. “This is something that is new. This is an upgrade of what the act was intended to do. We are still not there yet.” The Lincoln City Council is expected to select a consulting team for the ADA project within the month. The team’s report could be before the council in January.

As the City of Depoe Bay moves ahead with amending its transportation plan, city officials are working with the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) to adjust the speed limit along portions of U.S. Highway 101 that travels directly through the heart of the city. “An ODOT study shows 70 percent of motorists drive faster than the posted speed limits along Highway 101 through Depoe PHOTO/COURTESY Bay,” said Carol Connors, The speed limit along a portion of U.S. Highway 101 will soon be lowered from 30 to 25 Depoe Bay mayor. “We mph for safety of pedestrians. wanted to do something right away for pedestrian safety.” same, but Depoe Bay offihighway recently, Connors Hill to Evans Street along Connors has met with cials appealed that recomsaid there have been many the highway. the ODOT director and the mendation to the agency’s close calls. “We are really happy agency’s engineers over traffic safety board of The committee met with that ruling,” said Conthe past several months to appeals committee.

Connor said ODOT is paying for a consultant to help Depoe Bay through the amendment process. “We are going through a whole community process,” said Connors.

visual resources,” said Klarin. At the Astoria meeting, Klarin said the purpose of the forums was to solicit input on their framework for categorizing a site’s visual resources before the plan is submitted to Land Conservation and Development Commission in January. Of the presentation’s 64 slides, 23 of them dealt with “visual resources.” Andy Lanier, a coastal permit specialist with DLCD, presented an example site evaluation featuring Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach. Lanier said over the summer DLCD and Oregon Parks and Recreation evaluated 144 locations. Lanier said the addition of the data to the plan was a way to address public comment from earlier in the process. “This work is in response to a lot of public comments,” he said. Coastal community leaders have also voiced concerns about the economic impact of any proposed

wave energy projects. Lanier said the committee set out to develop objective criteria for how to evaluate a site, and the initial 144-site survey gives them a baseline of data. According to Lanier, they used Haystack Rock as an example in the presentation to show how their evaluation process worked. The criteria used to evaluate the sites involved ranking a site from zero to five on seven parameters: landforms, vegetation, water features, color, adjacent scenery, scarcity and cultural modification. The rankings on each parameter are then summed to classify the site. Haystack Rock is ranked a 25, which was considered a “Class A” view. The highest possible (five out of five on all seven parameters) is a 35. For comparison, Hug Point had a 17, which the presentation says is a “Class B view.” The state evaluated the sites using an “emotional check” where the site is ranked from zero to ten about the immediate impact of a site on the viewer. Haystack Rock was ranked ten,

the highest possible on this scale. The presentation listed ten potential sites for marine energy development, including Camp Rilea in Clatsop County and Pacific City in south Tillamook County. The presentation said that Camp Rilea has a very high viability for near shore wave energy devices, but says there would be “significant conflict with fishing and crabbing” at the site. The Nestucca Bay/ Pacific City site is “one of the top wave energy sites” according to the state’s evaluation of the sites. The evaluation says that the site has advantages for energy development because the geology is good for shallow and mid-depth devices and because it is close to electri-

cal infrastructure. However, the evaluation said the site’s proximity to aesthetic views and the Pacific City community are “concerns.” It also said that there may be conflicts with the Pacific Dorymen’s fleet. Klarin said so far no communities have stepped forward to advocate for wave energy near their community. He said the challenge of TSPAC and OPAC in developing the plan was to identify areas of least conflict for potential wave energy development. He also repeatedly said that the plan’s sites were a way to direct developers to certain areas, and it did not mean that there would necessarily ever be anything built within them.

“The plan just directs them to a location,” he said. “Then the real work starts.” According to Klarin, a developer interested in building in a site would need to go through a five to seven year permitting process, and the developer would have to work with the community and local stakeholders throughout the process. The development of the state plan may only affect the three miles off the coast, but the Territorial Sea Plan has larger implications: the federal waters (extending to the outer continental shelf) will be managed consistently with the state waters because of the federal Coastal Zone Management Act. An online National Oceanic and Atmospheric

The News Guard


Administration (NOAA) summary of the consistency requirement says “Federal consistency is the CZMA requirement where federal agency activities that have reasonably foreseeable effects on any land or water use or natural resource of the coastal zone... must be consistent to the maximum extent practicable with the enforceable policies of a coastal state’s federally approved coastal management program.” The plan will be submitted to both NOAA and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission after the state approves it.

Council takes up annexation issue

Dozens of residents call for public vote

Jeremy C. Ruark The News Guard

The Lincoln City Council will take on the issue of annexing 246 acres of the Roads End area during pubic hearings scheduled for Nov. 19 and 20. Following two public hearings Nov. 6 and 7, the Lincoln City Planning Commission voted to recommend to the city council that the annexation process move ahead. During the Commission hearings, 24 people who own property or homes in Roads End spoke out against the annexation. No one spoke in favor. The area to be annexed includes 706 homes and 907 tax lots. The annexation is valued at $241,405,460, according to city records. Lincoln City began the annexation process in 2005 under state land use laws issuing consent agreements to annex when new sewer and water hookups were made or an existing name change for the utilities was made. A federal court upheld the city’s process in a ruling made in 2008. But many of those that testified before the planning commission argued that they were forced to sign consent letters or face water service shutoffs by the city. “It would be interesting if you could re-contact those who signed the consent letters to get a new vote without the threats,” said John Swalko, a Roads End home owner. “This is wrong,” said one woman who testified before the commission Nov. 6. “You are wrong to take our rights away.”

Annexation Hearing

Nov. 19-20 at 6 p.m. City Hall, Third Floor 801 SW Highway 101 Lincoln City Another person testifying told the commission, “You have a lot of angry people out there.” “We want to make our choice on how we are to be governed,” said Chris Jalowy with the Roads End Improvement District. Other property owners presented letters signed by their Roads End neighbors opposing the annexation and asking for a public vote on the issue. “We have no voice against the city,” said another Roads End homeowner. Others called the Lincoln City process “hostage annexation,” and “extortion.” Several residents have said they would take legal action against Lincoln City if the annexation is approved. Lincoln City Manager David Hawker believes the annexation issue will likely be settled in the courts. The Lincoln City Council’s annexation public hearing will be held Nov. 19 and 20 beginning at 6 p.m. at the council chambers on the 3rd floor at Lincoln City Hall located at 801 SW Highway 101.

program that operates the Depoe Bay Kid Zone, a project that provides a gathering spot and positive activities for area youth. “This is a priority,” said Mattila. “The children are our future.” Most important for the economic growth of Depoe Bay is the city’s harbor, according to Mattila, the harbor is Depoe Bay’s crown jewel and it is what draws people to the city. “We have a fish plant there that is sitting idle,” said Mattila. “We need to attract a processor and get that plant up and running. I also want to expand the dock system to bring in more fees and to make it more of a viable asset for the community.” Mattila is also concerned about the impact of Oregon

coast wave energy development and marine reserves on Depoe Bay’s economy. He said the Oregon Legislature has put into place laws to help. “Goal 19 in the Oregon Ocean Resources Plan is the gift from the legislature,” he said. “Let’s use it.” Also in the Nov. 6 General Election, Skip Hoitink, Brent Berry and Zeke Olsen were elected to the Depoe Bay City Council. All four will take the Oath of Office In January. Mattila, Hoitink, Berry and Olsen will be hosting a city potluck Nov. 18 at 5 p.m. at the Depoe Bay Community Center.

if you and your children should become separated. Always lock your car doors and remember where you park. Be sure to put valuables out of sight (i.e. packages, purses, mobile phones, CDs, etc.). Place them in the trunk or take them with you. This includes portable GPS units. Never hide spare keys in or on your car. These hiding places are easily discovered. If you need spare keys, keep them in your wallet or purse. Be alert to suspicious persons or circumstances. Avoid parking where you see someone sitting in their vehicle for no apparent reason. Trust your instincts. If you feel uncomfortable or unsafe in a situation, report it to security immediately. When walking in any parking lot, grocery store, airport, shopping center, etc., walk confidently with your head up, make eye contact, and have your keys ready. Do not drive across parking stalls. Use appropriate marked driving lanes and obey all traffic signs. Drive defensively and courteously.

Report all suspicious activity. And remember, parking lots will be more crowded and checkout lanes will be busier, so be patient and have a safe shopping experience. And now, here are some tips for sales personnel concerning counterfeit money. Do not return suspected money to the passer. Stall the suspect as long as possible. Get a good description of the suspect, anyone with the suspect, and of the suspect vehicle as well as the license number. Call 911 as soon as possible. Try not to handle the bill; put it in a protective covering such as an envelope. Release the suspected bill only to police or to the United States Secret Service. Inform the police if there is video footage available of the suspect.

Guest Commentary

A Moment in History

During the 1940s and the 1950s people parked their cars on the hard-packed beach sand. Visitors sometimes parked close to the water when the tide was out, thinking they were in a safe spot. If they left their cars and the tide changed, they sometimes returned to discover their car stuck in the sand and oncoming waves. This photograph and many more are available at the North Lincoln County Historical Museum and in the book, ‘Lincoln City and the Twenty Miracle Miles.’ Dates and names are given when they are known.

It’s the thankful time of year, once again On behalf of the Lincoln City Cultural Center board of directors, and all our members and volunteers, I’d like to thank the north Lincoln County community for your ongoing support. Together, we’ve built something important, here inside the historic Delake School. Local arts lovers first planted this idea in 1992, when they founded the original Coastal Communities Cultural Center group. They envisioned a space where residents, visitors, artists and performers could meet, celebrating and learning from one another. That dream became real in 2005, when the Lincoln County School District sold the Delake School to the Lincoln City Urban Renewal Agency, and the agency leased the space to the 4C’s.  We’ve been here, doing business as the Lincoln City Cultural Center, since 2006. These six years have brought amazing changes to this 1929 brick schoolhouse. Using more than

$900,000 in donations and grants, we renovated every space on the upper floor and two of the classrooms downstairs. The school may look historic on the outside, but inside you’ll find new bathrooms, ADA accessible entrances, forced air heat, lighting and more. We have a modern performance space, an art gallery, a dance studio, two conference rooms, two art studios and a gift John shop. Collier Most of this work was completed in 2009, but we continue to make upgrades as grants allow. In the year alone, we’ve upgraded the plumbing and connected with the city’s new water main, installed an auditorium sound system and planted a monument sign with

an electronic message board. You may have noticed this bright new addition to Hwy. 101. But that money wasn’t spent just to beautify. It was given, and used, to create a resource for the people of Lincoln City. The center is being discovered, and enjoyed, by people of all ages, every day. Our calendar is full of events, from the Zumba class at 8:45 am on a Wednesday morning to the play that ends at 10 pm on a Saturday night. On Sundays, we host the Lincoln City Farmers Market, sometimes followed by a matinee concert. On Tuesdays, we host afterschool art for kids K-3. Sculpture on Mondays, voice lessons on Fridays … the list just keeps on growing. If the present trend continues, our 2012 attendance figures will be twice what they were in 2011. More programs, more classes, more traffic – that means our operations budget has gone up, too.

We are counting on donations and memberships to make up 30% of our operating funds. To do that, and to keep on offering the programs that Lincoln City enjoys, we’re launching our Fall Donations Campaign. The board and I will be sending letters, making phone calls and meeting with members for the next month, trying to reach our goal of $10,000. Join us, and you’ll be eligible for one of our great “thank you” gifts. But the real reward will be the knowledge that you’re making Lincoln City a better place to live. Thanks for reading. To donate in the LCCC’s annual campaign, in full swing through Dec. 15, head to, or call the office at 541-994-9994. John Collier is the Lincoln City Cultural Center board of directors president. 

Guest Commentary

East Coast storms serve as a reminder to be prepared It was just a few short months ago that I took the subway from Brooklyn to New York’s Battery Park in lower Manhattan and looked out to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. It was a beautiful day and no one that day I’m sure could have imagined the devastation that would occur to the eastern shore on October 29, 2012.  Like most of you, I’ve been watching the floods, fires and wind damage “Hurricane Sandy” brought ashore and was shocked to see how just over a week later the Nor’easter brought extreme cold, high winds and six or more inches of snow to many areas still in ruins and without power from “Sandy.”  It may be 3,000 miles away, but serves as a “wake-up call” for all

coastal communities to be prepared for whatever Mother Nature has to offer.  How prepared is your home, workplace, family and co-workers for a disaster?  On the east coast from Maine to Florida people usually have days to prepare for damaging storms, yet so many, time and time again, do not realize how destructive these events can be or fail to evacuate out of harms way.  Every year in the Pacific Northwest, we experience some weather event; it might be flooding, wind storms, ice storms, even tornadoes and we are subject to wild land fires, and landslides or a combination of these.     Of course, off our own coast we have even a more destructive force, the Cascadia Subduction

Zone, an area that runs 800 miles long from British Columbia to northern California which will cause an earthquake and tsunami, bringing destruction similar to what happened in Japan on March 11, 2011, and off the coast of Sumatra on the morning of December 26, 2004. Geologists, state and federal officials are trying to anticipate how massive and extensive the damage will be the day our fault line event occurs.  How will you cope when a new date is added into the geological history books?  The good news, if there is good news, is you can prepare your home and family now for that day.  North Lincoln Fire and Rescue offers free “Severe Event Training” or S.E.T. presentations to any organization or group that

request it. To assist in understanding and prepare for what natural threats visit our region, we’ve established the Severe Event Training Program and free S.E.T. book. S.E.T. helps you plan and create different strategies for your unique situation and gives life-saving information on earthquake and tsunami preparedness for your family and community.    SET covers: What type of natural disasters can you prepare for? How can you better prepare your home and workplace? What lines of communication will be available? How and where to get accurate information? When should you evacuate or secure in place? What should be in your

96-hour kits? How to create a survival plan for weeks or months without assistance? S.E.T also includes all the latest information about the Japan earthquake, and what you need to do to get ready for a Cascadia Subduction Zone Earthquake and Tsunami and more. More details can be found at North Lincoln Fire and Rescue offices and through the American Red Cross at, or the Oregon Department of Geology And Mineral Industries (www.oregongeology. org) web sites.   Jim Kusz is a captain at North Lincoln Fire and Rescue District 1.

very challenging for all, we are committed to helping our community stamp out hunger and bring a warm smile and boxes of food to those in need. Without the constant focus from Firefighter David Bickerdyke, who by the way coordinated and executed this food raiser, we, NLFR, will all be at our best to make this event an annual contribution to our community. In short, thanks David and all my brothers and sisters who make this happen. I am consistently amazed what we can accomplish when we all work together toward making our community a better place to live. From Rose Lodge to Cutler City, thank you all. Lt.

tion Hearings before the Lincoln City Planning Commission. As a Roads End resident I personally gave testimony. It was standingroom only Tuesday. The proceedings got off to an uncertain start when someone in the back of the room shouted that he could not hear. Chairman Feuerborn overreacted a bit when he suggested he might have to shut down the proceedings before they even started. With as contentious a topic as the hostage annexation being undertaken by the City Council, it had to be quite an unrewarding task for the Planning Commission to hear the heartfelt objections from so many citizens. The only oral testimony offered in support of the proposed triple majority annexation was from City Planning Director Townsend, who presented the city’s staff report in fa-

vor of annexation. After the testimony was finished on Wednesday, the Planning Commission spent about ten minutes deliberating, making it appear that their recommendation to the City Council to proceed with annexation was predetermined. I feel the Planning Commission should have at least noted the major plank in Roads End’s argument, namely that the large number of Roads End property owners asserting a right to rescind their forced consents have undermined the city’s claimed triple majority. It was oft stated by those giving testimony that they would abide by the result of an open doublemajority vote on Annexation. If the City can make a compelling case for Annexation, we in Roads End have yet to hear it. Jim Stovall Lincoln City

Hooray for the Bijou

Lincoln City is fortunate to have the Bijou. And it, like thousands of other small town theaters, are being threatened with extinction with the switch from 35mm to digital. It would be nice to remind the readers of The News Guard that just a few dollars donation each will help to raise the $30k needed for the digital projector. The Bijou is more than a business, it is a local treasure - a social connection.

Cultural Center launches annual fundraising drive Jeremy C. Ruark The News Guard

A fundraising drive critical to support operations at the Lincoln City Cultural Center begins Nov. 15. “We need to raise $10,000 between now and the end of December to support our building operations and staff,” said Niki Price, the center’s executive director, who is the only full time person on staff. Her salary is funded through grants. The center, housed at the old Delake School on U.S. Highway 101, also employs a part-time business manager, a part-time information center person, a part-time art gallery director and a part-time janitor. Donations, membership fees, grants, rental income, a service management agreement to operate the Lincoln City Visitors Information Center, and a rent forgiveness agreement with Lincoln City helps keep the doors open at the Cultural Center. In 2011, Price and her staff operated with an operating budget of $180,000 offering 153 events with an attendance of 10,404 at the center. So far this year, the center has held 158 events with attendance at 17,317. (The figures do not include attendance at the Farmers Market held at the center.) The center is designed to

ramic studio, a dance studio, a gallery, offers sculpture classes, live performing arts and other cultural experiences and rents space. The Center is home to the Lincoln County Farmers Market and hosts the official Lincoln City Visitors Center

through an operating contract with Lincoln City. The Visitors Center and Cultural Center offices operate 10 a.m. to 4 pm., Monday through Thursday. Classes at the center are being offered day and night seven days a week by appointment. Price said the fundraising drive is an effort to stabilize the finances at the center. “If we don’t get the $10,000 we won’t be able to do as much building maintenance,” she said. “We are also trying to keep the people that are doing very well here.” The Cultural Center’s board of directors has established a reserve fund of $14,500 to help avoid any economic crisis. “We really don’t want to be on the economic roller coaster,” said Price. “We want to be building for the future. We have been really lucky for the community support so far and that shows that what we are doing is really important.” Price said the City of Lincoln City’s support for the center is also important. “That tells me we are a good investment and we are doing good things with our money,” said Price. In June, The Lincoln City Urban Renewal Agency agreed to forego rental income totalling $30,000 for the fiscal year for the center.

Driftwood Public Library patrons may notice a new voice on their voicemail in the coming weeks: a pleasant recorded message informing them that a requested book has arrived at the library, or offering a gentle reminder that items are overdue. Driftwood joins Tillamook County Library and Newport Public Library in offering this service, a feature of the new library system software launched earlier this year. The majority of library patrons have become accustomed to receiving their hold pick-up notices and overdue notices via email, and these individuals will continue to receive email notices as before. There is a sizeable minority of patrons who do not have email, however, and serving these patrons has historically meant either a phone call from a staff member, or a mailed notice. “We understand that not all of our patrons have access to email,” said Kirsten Brodbeck-Kenney, library director. “We are committed to providing excellent service to the community, while also using our resources efficiently and responsibly. This new system offers an outstanding way to do both.” Brodbeck-Kenney expects the automated system to offer significant savings in both time and money. “Notifying patrons that items they’ve requested have arrived has meant staff personally calling each patron, an average of 50

On June 13, 1944, Lois Joy married Lois Joy Edward M. Chodowski Chodowski, just prior to him leaving to serve his country in World War II. They were one month shy of celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary when her beloved husband and companion passed away May 13, 2004. They had a full life together and enjoyed traveling the US and Canada in their RV for 37 years and were very active in their Christian Science church. Lois is survived by her loving sister Aline (Mel) Kent of Florida; her two sons,

Carl William Ehrman

Incomparable husband, father, grandfather, and friend Carl William Ehrman passed away on October 30, 2012, in Sparks, Nevada, after celebrating his 85th birthday with friends and family. Born Carl William in ScottsEhrman bluff, Nebraska on October 28, 1927, and graduating from Cheyenne High School in 1945, Carl entered the US Army and served in post-war Berlin, and later in Korea. He

graduated from the University of Wyoming in May 1956 with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. The next day he married Mildred Eileen Ransom, of Laramie, Wyoming, and the couple moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota. Carl joined Univac (later Sperry-Univac) at the dawn of the electronic age and was immersed in the development of computers, from vacuum tubes to microchips. Carl and Millie had four children while in Minnesota: Julia Marie, Patricia Jean, Robert Paul, and Dean Carl. In 1970 the Ehrmans relocated to Salt Lake City, Utah, and upon retirement the couple moved to Lincoln City, Oregon. After 16 years of whale-watching and volunteer work at the Hatfield Marine Science Center and Oregon Coast Aquarium, they had only recently settled in a retirement community in Sparks, near their daughter Julie. A distinguished electrical engineer, Carl was also a licensed pilot and an avid photographer. He loved the outdoors, and enjoyed

rock climbing, bicycling, hiking, backpacking, and snowshoeing with family and friends. A tireless intellectual, Carl was a voracious reader, and loved jazz, classical music, opera, and ballet. Carl is preceded in death by his parents, William and Mary (Brush) Ehrman, and his sister, Millamae Beck. He is survived by his wife, Millie, their children, Julie, Pat, Paul, and Dean, grandchildren Angela and Robert Ehrman, and innumerable in-laws, nieces, nephews, and friends. Carl was a truly unique and gifted individual, who will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, November 15, at 10:00 a.m. at Holy Cross Catholic Community, 5650 Vista Blvd., Sparks, NV, 89436. In lieu of flowers, Carl would have appreciated donations to The Nature Conservancy.

The future of the Pacific City Airport will be discussed at a Dec. 19 meeting at the Kiawanda Community Center.

Pacific City Airport closure under review consider ways of reducing state money spent on maintaining airports in Oregon. Funding is not the only criterion for keeping an airport open, said Swecker. Of key importance are the community’s needs and the likely impacts of airport closure that would affect emergency access to the region, needs of the Coast Guard and law enforcement and the impact on local commerce and safety. Swecker encouraged active community input on the issue. Pacific City’s CPAC plans

to address keeping the airport open at its regular meeting on Nov. 19, at 6:30 p.m., at the Kiawanda Community Center. A “walk-through” of the airport by staff of the Department of Aviation is planned for Dec. 19 at 3 p.m. Tillamook county commissioners plan to participate and then to meet at 5 p.m., at the Kiawanda Community Center. The public is invited to the walk-through and to the commissioners’ meeting.

Boys’ trio leads Lincoln City swimmers

Lincoln County School District’s main administrative office in Newport will operate at a reduced capacity during the upcoming Thanksgiving, winter and spring breaks. “The District Office will be locked during these school breaks and the reception staff will not be available to answer the main phone line,” said Chelsi Sholty, LCSD human resources manager. “However, we

will continue to answer calls that come in to individual desks, and we will respond to any voice mail messages left on the main line as quickly as possible.” Schools will be closed Nov. 19-23 for Thanksgiving; Dec. 24-Jan. 4 for the winter break; and March 22-29 for spring break. The District Office will be closed on Nov. 2223, Dec. 24-25, Jan. 1, and March 22.

kids,” Parker said.


and was fifth in the other to contribute a team-leading 73 points to the girls’ score. “We had more DQ’s [disqualifications] than I would have liked,” Parker said, “but for several swimmers it was a chance to try something they had never done before — get closer to achieving strokes like breast; make sure they understand their back turns. With early season swims for the highschool age kids, it reinforces training and paying attention to details.” Charles Sims, 14, took the most time off his personal best among Lincoln City swimmers, knocking 20 seconds off his clocking in the 200 free. Cortez, Lydia Prins, Sammi Halferty, John Paul Flores and Cole Kissell had almost 10-second reductions in an event. Younger swimmers such as Addie and Natalie Gates, Ashley and Rachel Scheuing, Maxim Larrabee, Angel Moreno, Charlotte Lunstedt and Sayge Ulrich also cut major time off their personal-bests, Parker said. Swimming for the first time in a meet were Ariel Larrabee, Brooke Olsen, Evan Halferty, Eric Zamorano, Joram Hoff, Jesse Rose, Katie McCardell, BillyAnn Stempel, Eli Shott and Simon Polly. “There is some real potential there with many of these


The fastest of the fast in age-group swimming from throughout the region gathered last weekend and — in a blink — watched as the local boys team posted a second-place finish to rival Newport in the annual Pumpkin Sprint Meet. Sam Cortes, 8, and 10-yearolds Hunter Lunstedt and Mason Garding combined for 220 points, or almost half, of the boys’ total as Lincoln City Swim Club fell to the Cubs on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 1011, at the Lincoln City Community Center pool. “I think we had a very successful and fun meet for the kids,” Lincoln City Swim Club’s coach Lissa Parker said. “We also had a bunch of novices doing their first meet ever, regardless of age. We had 44 LCSC swimmers swim on Saturday. It’s been a very busy time for coaches and parents.” While hardly in secondary school, Garding scored 86 points, Cortes 72 and Lunstedt 62, while 14-year-olds Justin Delfin and Dylan Mickelson combined for another 58, and two relay teams (open 200-yard medley and open 200 free) posted third-place finishes. Newport won the boys team title with 716 points. The Cubs

were followed by Lincoln City with 475, Tigard-Tualatin, 405; Forest Grove, 352; South Coast, 274; and Tillamook, 251. Garding won three 10-andunder events — the 50-yard backstroke, butterfly and freestyle — and placed in the top three in three others to lead all Lincoln City swimmers. Cortes won the 8-andunder 50 free and placed in the top five in all six of his events, primarily against older competition in the 10-and-under classification. Lunstedt won the 10-andunder 100 free and finished in the top five in four other races. “The girls were not too shabby either,” Parker said of LCSC’s fourth-place finish against teams such as TigardTualatin and South Coast, which featured state high school 200 freestyle champion Alyssa Bennett. Tigard-Tualatin won the girls competition with 669 points. Placing second was Tillamook, 560; Forest Grove, 473; Lincoln City, 377; South Coast, 327; and Newport, 259. The Lincoln City girls’ open 200-yard freestyle relay team — comprised of Marlee Garding, Averi Affeld-Anderson, Lizeth Cortes and Destiny Zook — placed first in 2:08.47. Zook posted top three finishes in five of her six events

Hospice II: Dignity, Dignity, Dignity


ull of audience participation and jaw-dropping illusions, the Believe It! Unbelievable Magic show is coming to the Lincoln City Cultural Center on Thursday, Nov. 15. Its star is Jason Andrews, a professional magician who holds the unbelievable – yet completely legit — title of “International Champion of Magic.” The show will start at 7 p.m. at the center, 540 NE Hwy. 101. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Andrews, a veteran of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” and a frequent performer at the Crazy Horse Paris at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, has promised a 90-minute performance with original illusions, comedy, live animals and sleight of hand. “You simply have to see it to Believe It!” said Andrews. Andrews is a native of Las Vegas, and was first inspired to become a magician at the age of 12, when he saw Lance Burton perform. Andrews attended the Las Vegas Academy for the Performing Arts, and starred in two U.S. tours in 2007 and 2008. Upon his return to Las Vegas, he was named “Entertainer of the

Unsung Heroes By Janet Anderson

‘Sunshine’ always lights up when This Volunteer comes to visit. No wonder. She brings flowers, does Sunshine’s hair and nails, creams for her face, make up, and a cheerful attitude. This Hospice Program Volunteer, who also chooses to remain anonymous, makes very sure that when she visits Hospice patients, she also brings a large supply of dignity. That is foremost in her heart. She and Sunshine also talk about eating, singing, hugs, kisses, and smiles. When the tough times come to a person and they are not living in a small town with family and friends close by, people can feel isolated and alone. If you live in a town where there are social programs like Hospice available, that void of family and close friends can be filled just a little. Or maybe filled a lot. As I said in the last column, my own family was blessed to have the Hospice program present when my cousin died. My cousin’s family was indeed scattered and was present as much as possible, but at the end especially the comfort that Hospice brought to all of us was a big eye opener for me. That was my only experience with the program. The comfort and peace of mind that I felt was amazing. This Volunteer worked in the social services field before retiring and moving to Oregon. She was especially interested in the field of memory care. Many of her former clients had no families or if they had families they were far, far away and were inaccessible except for infrequent visits. Hospice was always there and is there to fulfill needs that otherwise would have been left unmet. It is so comforting knowing that when Hospice is involved, the patient has an incredible Team working together to provide the utmost in care and attention! Our city is so blessed to have the resources of Hospice. The Hospice program is a Team with a capital T. Meetings of the entire Team are held biweekly. Volunteers are invited but the meetings are not mandatory for them. This Volunteer submits a written report monthly with all contacts on it. She includes anecdotal reports on eating and response levels, and recommends specific needs she feels the patients have. She also said that the Hospice volunteers occasionally provide supplies to patients on their own. A simple gift of a bottle of nice hand lotion goes a long way. As a volunteer myself I know how it is with purchasing materials for whatever program you are volunteering for: for a classroom, marker pens and books; for a gardening group, plants and compost; for the fire department, flowers for decoration and brownies for hungry firemen. We all do it to some degree. “The Man” was a World War II Veteran and a very handsome man. He loved the music of that era: Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Tennessee Ernie Ford. This Volunteer brought in CDs. He and his lunch mates would sit quietly and listen with nostalgia to the wonderful big band sounds. Even with their memory problems the words of the songs would surface and suddenly everyone sang. Music brings happiness. What a group singing “Amazing Grace!” What absolute joy! You know when you go into Hospice work that you have to let go when the time comes. Sometimes the volunteers need a break. When that time comes the program team is there for support. Take a break. Go for a walk on the beach. Read your book. Listen to your music. My comfort music is Ray Charles. Do you know what yours is? If you are interested in inquiring about the Hospice program, please contact: Becky Hall, Samaritan North Lincoln Hospice, 541996-7328, or email her at hallbe@ If you know a volunteer who deserves acknowledgement or want a particular program explored, please contact: Janet Anderson

Year” by Boyd Gaming and “International Champion of Magic” by the International Brotherhood of Magicians. In total, he has won 25 magic awards around the world. In 2011, Andrews took his magic to Japan, England, China, Mexico and Canada. In addition to “America’s Got Talent,” he has also appeared on “Stars Among the Angels,” a national variety show benefitting Child Haven. Whenever he’s in Los Angeles, you can see him at the Magic Castle, in Hollywood. Guest-starring in “Believe It!” will be Comedy “Quack” Magician Adam London. London is obsessed with rubber ducks, using them in his magic and comedy routine. Tickets are $12 in advance and $14 at the door, with children 12 and under admitted free with a paid adult.

Austrian player breaks way to win JIM FOSSUM The News Guard

Jasmin Ouschan got all the breaks Sunday night at the Women’s Professional Billiards Association Tour Championship at the Chinook Winds Casino Resort. Ouschan (pronounced ocean) won the lag to determine who would break first, rattled off a big lead by clearing some of the table on the first shot in several games, then stunningly sank the 9-ball on the break in the decisive 10th game to claim a 7-3 victory over future Hall of Famer Karen Corr. “The break was definitely the difference tonight. Ouschan at the ocean. I guess it’s better at the ocean,” Ouschan said after winning the four-day event at Chinook Winds, whose motto is “It’s better at the beach.” Ouschan, who won at Chinook Winds for the second time in three years, sank two balls on the break twice in the final and three on another occasion before sinking the rarest of shots in the decisive final match.

“I actually thought to myself, ‘Why not just get this over with and make the 9 on the break?’” she said. “I could see it rolling down the table and thought, ‘Wow, it might really go in.’” Ouschan, 26, of Klagenfurt, Austria, emerged victorious on Veterans Day over a semifinal field of four foreign players. She won the first semifinal over Englishwoman Allison Fisher, while Corr, of Ireland, defeated defending champion Ga Young Kim of South Korea in Sunday afternoon’s second semi. Ouschan defeated Corr for the title by winning the first four games of the match before losing three of the next four. Before that, though, she took a commanding 5-1 lead by rattling the 8-ball into the front left corner, then the 9 on a delicate slice in the back before Corr mounted a brief charge to 5-3. “That was a big shot, a big moment,” she said. While Corr, who will be inducted into the Billiards Congress of America Hall of Fame in


Jasmine Ouschan of Austria won the WPBA Tour Championship at Chinook Winds Casino in a 10th game 7-3 victory. October in Virginia Beach, Va., closed the gap, she recognized she would have a tough time rallying despite suffering just one defeat in the made-for-television event featuring 48 of the world’s leading players. “Her break made the differ-

ence,” said Corr, who watched as Ouschan, who went undefeated in the tournament, made the most by mopping up the clean tables she left. “Really, all week was like that,” Ouschan said.

Top Chef at Oyster Cloyster Congratulations to the Pelican Pub & Brewery’s Executive Chef Ged Aydleott for bringing home “Top Chef” from the 12th Annual, Oyster Cloyster, held Nov. 3 in Newport. Chef Ged presented a gourmet creation highlighting a Silverspot IPA Smoked Netarts Bay Oyster atop a Cucumber Salad and Roasted Jalapeno Vinaigrette on Spent Grain Crostini. Silverspot IPA is an English Style IPA named after the endangered Silverspot Butterfly whose habitat is along the Oregon Coast. Oyster Cloyster, held at the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, is the major fundraising event for the Oregon Coast Community College’s Aquarium Science Program. Twelve Chefs from premiere restaurants on the Oregon Coast put together gourmet culinary creations that were judged by a panel of Executive Chefs and the public then awarded at the end of the evening. This is the second time the Pelican has won the coveted “Top Chef” award at the Oyster Cloyster. PHOTO BY KEN HOWARD/METROPOLITAN OPERA.

The opera also stars Isabel Leonard as Prospero’s daughter, Miranda; Alek Shrader as the shipwrecked prince, Ferdinand; Alan Oke as the monstrous island native Caliban; and Audrey Luna in the stratospheric coloratura role of the air spirit Ariel.

Tyler is a 2011 graduate of Chaparral High School in Temecula, California, and has been in the Coast Guard for a year and two months. He has been stationed at Coast Guard Station Depoe Bay since October of 2011. Tyler is currently a striking Boatswains Mate at the Station working on becoming qualified as a 3rd Class Petty Officer with a Boatswains Mate rating In addition to his Seaman duties he is a qualified crew member on the Station’s 47 ft Motor Life Boats (MLB). As a 47 MLB crew member he participates in Search and Rescue (SAR) missions, safety patrols, and training on the Pacific Ocean off the Oregon coast. He is also a qualified watchstander with rotating duty in the Station’s Communication Center. Currently Tyler is training on becoming a Boarding Team Member (BTM). After he completes the BTM qualification process he will become a member of a Boarding Team responsible for conducting law enforcement operations on the high seas along the Central Oregon Coast. Tyler plans to progress from boat crew to coxswain, heavy weather coxswain, and then achieve the prestigous rating of Coast Guard Surfman. A Surfman in the highest rating a boat driver can achieve in the Coast Guard. They are the men and women who drive the Motor Life Boats in stormy wind and sea conditions during Search and Rescue missions. His long term goal is to make the Coast Guard a career, and eventually retire as a Master Chief. Congratulations to Tyler for being selected Sailor of the Quarter by his shipmates, and for his service to the Coast Guard and to the people of the United States. (541) 994-2178 WINDOW COVERINGS
