Standoff at Lincoln City Senior Center

A helping hand

As a member of the North Lincoln Fire and Rescue District 1, Kyle Riebe usually suits up to fight fires or help rescue people in distress, but on Nov. 16 Riebe joined fellow firemen Jim Kusz and Marc McPherson to go shopping. This was no ordinary shopping adventure though. The three were shopping at Toys ‘R’ Us at the Tanger Factory Outlet Center as part of the fire districts annual Christmas toy drive.

Jeremy C. Ruark The News Guard It’s been the talk of the town in Lincoln City for several months. The controversy swirling around the Lincoln Center Senior Center has caused tension inside the facility at the Lincoln City Community Center and has spilled out into the community. “People are not being treated with respect and dignity, that is my concern,” said Sandra Yardley, 78, a member of the Lincoln City Senior Center for more than

20 years. Yardley is charging that some of the members are bullied, insulted and shunned by others and that the Center’s board isn’t following state guidelines or the board’s bylaws. The board oversees the senior center’s operations for its 185 members. Yardley has been on a quest to end what she calls senior abuse at the center, but Yardley said she’s run up against a brick wall in her efforts to end the abuse. Yardley said she has talked with senior center

administrators, Lincoln City Manager David Hawker and to Lincoln City Mayor Dick Anderson without any results. “The city manager and the mayor said the senior center is a non-profit and not operated by Lincoln City,” said Yardley. “There just isn’t a place to get resolution. All I am trying to do is make enough noise to get somebody to resolve this.” Additionally, Yardley has sent letters to the editor of

have had enough toys,” Dean said. Toys were one thing, he realized. What about food? Enter Taft High 7-12 Principal Scott Reed, whose school annually participates in a food drive, to provide additional assistance in spreading the word. “He asked me to help them get a reader board for their school, so Marc and I went up and talked to the student council, the up-andcomers at the school, about the food drive they have.” Upon a return visit and a student body assembly to announce the school’s commitment to pitching in, Dean discovered he was about to become an extremely generous Santa with a very overstuffed bag.

While it won’t be the mad dash seen at shopping malls in larger cities like Portland, Eugene and Salem, Lincoln City officials are seeing positive signals that the Christmas shopping season should be profitable for local businesses. “I usually don’t start my shopping until two weeks before Christmas,” said Shari Junger of Lincoln City. “But because I have three kids and it takes longer I am doing the shopping now.” She is also spending more this holiday than she did last Christmas. “I am spending more because I feel more comfortable about the economy,” said Junger. Junger isn’t alone. “We are definitely seeing a better year this year with more customers spending more money,” said Diane Kusz, Tanger Factory Outlet Center general manager. This is the first Christmas that the Tanger Factory Outlet Center’s Toys ‘R’ Us store has been opened. The store’s department sales manager, Maryellen Watkins, says shoppers filled the store over the past weekends. “It blew away our numbers,” said Watkins. “People were starting their Christmas shopping.

Effort boosts food, toy drives Jim Fossum The News Guard

Patrick Dean was taken aback last year when he helped haul two pickup trucks brimming with toys to the fire department with hopes of fulfilling the wishes of bubbly children on Christmas morning. The manager of the Les Schwab Tire Center in Lincoln City wondered aloud how Santa could possibly place enough presents under the trees of anxious local children with only the dolls, toys and games donated to North Lincoln Fire & Rescue District #1. Where’s all the Christmas spirit, he asked? Possibly —- probably — lost in a lack of publicity and communication, he determined. “When we got there,


thought maybe they could get 1,000 cans of food total, but each little group there is trying to raise 1,000 pounds of food. That’s pretty outstanding


- Patrick Dean we saw that the toy receptacle wasn’t getting a lot of toys,” he said, “so I knew they must be short to some degree.” A longtime local resident whose store at 1025 S.W. Highway 101 commits annually to the holiday toy drive, Dean surmised that getting the word out might have had something to do with it. So, he committed some advertising dollars. “I think in the past, we

really haven’t let the community know what was really going on,” he said. Working hand-in-hand, Les Schwab joined Lincoln Fire & Rescue, Taft High 7-12, the Elks and Eagles clubs and Quality Printing Service to do something about it. Dean discussed the needy children’s plight with fire fighter Marc McPherson. “He told me if we hadn’t contributed, they wouldn’t

Pow Wow big draw to Lincoln City Jeremy C. Ruark The News Guard

If you attended the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians annual Restoration Pow Wow at Chinook Winds Casino Resort Nov. 17 you may not have recognized former Oregon Governor Victor Atiyeh. He was one of special guests that marched in the opening ceremonies of the event. But Atiyeh wasn’t in his familiar business suit and tie. He was wearing an official tribal outfit given to him by the Umatilla Indians several years ago while he was governor. “This is only the second time that I have worn this,” he said. Atiyeh looks forward to attending the annual Pow Wows. “I signed my room reservation a couple of months ago because I

didn’t want to miss this,” he said. “This is an event other governors should attend. The warmth and the participation by the tribes makes me feel good.” The former governor has maintained relationships with members of the Indian tribes over the years because those friendships are important to him. “I just love them all,” he said. Rena Philerook, a tribe member from Nehalem, brought her two month old granddaughter to the Pow Wow and made a point to meet with Atiyeh. “He has done so much for our tribes,” said Philerook. “I wanted to tell him how proud and thankful we are.

November 21, 2012

Officials acknowledge challenges ahead for Lincoln County services Following the Nov. 6 election Bill Hall, reelected as Lincoln County Commissioner Position 2, said his main priority would be to maintain county services. “My top priority as we move forward is maintaining Lincoln County services as best as possible,” said Hall. “We have been able to maintain stability over the past few years, but expenses continue to go up and the county has already done a lot of reducing. We have to find ways to be more efficient and streamline services. We need to deliver more results for less.” Hall isn’t ruling out a search for new revenues that might include new taxes or fees. “But the message I am hearing from county residents is they want essential services maintained, but they want us to live within our means,” he said. “Families have done that and government has to do that and that’s what we are doing already.” Hall said he was “over-

whelmed and gratified” by the vote of confidence he received from voters in his reelection. Dennis Dotson, reelected as Lincoln County Sheriff, believes he won another term because of his connection to voters. “I would like to think my victory was because over the past eight years we’ve told people what we wanted to do and told them what we did and we informed them of what was next,” Dotson said. “We reach out with the Tip of the Week (published in The News Guard), radio programs and community meetings all dedicated to provide citizens information about their sheriff’s office. It is important to have contact with them to hear their needs and their ideas.” The financial crisis that the state and counties face will be the major challenge for his office and Lincoln County, said Dotson. “My concern is providing adequate law enforcement services to county residents,” he said. “People

The News Guard and she’s spent about $150 to place ads run in the newspaper detailing what she sees as abuse and asking Lincoln City officials to intervene. Jan Shields, Lincoln City Senior Center president, said Yardley’s ads are false, misleading, and disruptive. During a meeting in September, board members agreed to censure Yardley and use the center’s Rule of Conduct to enforce that censure because of concerns Yardley’s actions were detrimental and disrupting the center’s activities. Following her visit to the senior center is October, administrators asked police to cite Yardley for trespassing after she was asked to leave. City Manager Hawker later dismissed the citation. Yardley isn’t alone in her quest. Sandra Kirkpatrick, another member of the senior center, has taken her concerns about bullying and the cancelation of bingo and potlucks at the Center to Mayor Dick Anderson. “I have heard a great deal about the growing tensions and issues at the senior center,” said Anderson in an email response to Kirkpatrick in late October. “I am disappointed that adults can not find a way to work things out. This is like

With a commitment from Les Schwab of $1,000 for every 100 families the school served, Dean now expects to reach his maximum pledge of $5,000. “I thought they could maybe get 1,000 cans of food total, but each little group there [seniors, juniors, sophomores, freshmen and staff] is trying to raise 1,000 pounds of food,” he said. “That’s pretty outstanding.” In addition, Les Schwab will hold a daylong photo shoot with Santa on Saturday, Nov. 24. where children

expect us to respond to resolve issues. It takes people to respond to those calls. If you don’t have the funding to hire the people those calls go unanswered.” Dotson said the county needs to find stable, adequate and dedicated funding to solve the problem. Lincoln City businessman David Gomberg, elected as State Representative 10th District, is ready to help in the search for stable law enforcement funds for the county. Gomberg said county residents want a strong voice in Salem. “We based this campaign on issues; family wage jobs, education, health care, seniors and our small businesses and our community college,” said Gomberg. “Those are issues that make a difference to people here on the coast and that made a difference in this race.” Those issues will be my priority as a legislator and the ones we will focus on in Salem.

a marriage having trouble. I have suggested previously to others that they explore the assistance of the Lincoln County Community Dispute Resolution group.” Yardley said Shields refused to enter into the dispute resolution. Yardley most recently sent a letter to the Oregon Department of Justice seeking a formal investigation into the senior center. Michael Bass, who ran unsuccessfully as a candidate for president of the senior center board, alleges that the board is allowing, and some board members participate in, gambling by condoning pinochle games at the Center. “Money is collected from each player at the start of the game and then paid out at the end of the game,” said Bass. “But the center does not hold a valid permit for gambling and does not meet the Lincoln City Social Gaming Requirements.” Bass said he delivered his concerns about the gambling to the Lincoln City Police Department without any results. Shields denies that there is any illegal gambling or bullying at the center. “We want the community to know that we are not bullies,” said Shields. “Nobody has been bullied.” She defends stopping the

potlucks established by Yardley because of concerns from other members that Yardley was allowing the homeless to attend the meals. “She violated our trust,” said Shields. “The center is not made to be a homeless shelter.” Yardley placed flyers at different locations in town to invite seniors to the potlucks. “I was a volunteer host and we were bringing our lunches and it just grew into potlucks,” said Yardley. “I didn’t invite the homeless.” Shields did meet with Yardley, but that meeting did not lead to resolution. “I think the final step will be having members vote to remove Sandra permanently from the center,” said Shields. Yardley, Bass and Kirkpatrick say the abuse has caused dozens of seniors not to come to the center. “Many others have been turned away by the center administrators,” Bass said. “It should be open to all seniors in town to enjoy and not just a selected few who want to run it their way,” Yardley said. Diane Church, one of the quilters who uses a room at the senior center for their projects, said the controversy has been disruptive. “People just seem to be kind of on edge,” said Church. “We don’t want anything to happen to the

community center. It is a great place to come for fun. We are here to quilt.” Church hopes a solution can be reached. “Maybe everybody could get together and talk about what do people want from the senior center,” said Church. “There are just a couple of petty disagreements between two people who have blown it out of proportion,” said Dick Young of Gleneden Beach, who calls the senior center his second home. “The majority of the people spend a lot of their time here. They enjoy it and they get along.” Young isn’t sure there is a resolution to the current controversy. “I don’t know if people can change,” he said. “There are a couple of people that take things way too seriously. They are minor things and they handled them wrong.” Gail Kimberling, Lincoln City Community Center director, said the senior center controversy has been disruptive throughout the community center. “People come here to feel good about themselves through exercise, through social activities and for emotional wellbeing,” said Kimberling. “By having this growing controversy under our roof and at the senior center it is hindering

that.” She said the controversy has drained her staff who have to take time to listen to the seniors complaints and it has caused others to avoid the community center. “They are afraid,” she said. “They don ‘t feel welcomed.” Kimberling said a contract with Lincoln City allowing the senior center to operate within the city’s community center cannot be found. She said the senior center pays no rent or utilities for the space occupied within the community center. Hawker said a contract should be established with the senior center board. “But before that can happen this current disagreement needs to go away,” Hawker said. “I don’t want the city to be in the middle of this issue.” Anderson called not having a written contract with the senior center an “oversight.” “The city needs to have a contract with any organization that occupies city property,” said Anderson. “I cannot grasp that the mayor and the city council tolerate this kind of stuff that goes on at the center,” said Yardley. “There should be definite rules that those people have to follow in the running of the senior center.”

The Lincoln City Council wrapped up public hearings concerning the annexation of 296 acres in the Roads End area Nov. 20. A decision whether to move the process forward was not available at press time, but Mayor Dick Anderson and City Manager David Hawker expected the council to proceed with the annexation. “Four years ago when I was sworn in I was asked about Roads End and I said then it should be annexed,” said Anderson. “The Lincoln City Council and I have publicly stated annexation should go forward. It is a process that is moving ahead towards annexation. Anderson said Roads End is in the Lincoln City Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) and the area is highly developed. “Roads End is taking services from the city that lives right next to it,” said Anderson. “In Oregon that is a formula for annexation. Why else do we have a UGB if not to direct the growth of municipalities? During a two-day public hearing before the Lincoln City Planning Commis-

decisions would have to be made. The Lincoln City Council would have to formally adopt an annexation ordinance and public notices would have to be sent to the state and various utilities. Hawker didn’t expect any formal notice about the annexation would be sent to Roads End residents. Hawker has recommended that annexation take effect July 1 of 2013. If the council votes as expected for annexation, Anderson expects that would trigger deliberations over other components in the process. “I don’t think whether to annex or not annex is the issue,” said Anderson. “The issue is components within the ordinance that would be developed like changing the boundaries and ramping in taxes.” Several Roads End residents and property owners concerned about higher taxes, loss of control over their properties and the livability of the area have said they would take court action against Lincoln City if the annexation were approved. Anderson and Hawker believe the final battle over annexation will be played out in the courts.

sion earlier this month, 24 residents or property owners from Roads End testified against the annexation and asked for a public vote on the issue. “It could go to a public vote,” said Hawker. “The Roads End residents could vote. It would be an advisory vote, but when we decided to go down the road with the triple majority rule in this process that was the time we decided not to have the vote.” “Doing a vote has always been an option, but I see no reason to stop the current process to take a public vote,” said Anderson. Hawker has other concerns about the process. “What hasn’t been discussed yet by the council or anyone from Roads End is whether we would impose all the city taxes at once or whether we would ramp them in over a period of time if annexation is approved,” said Hawker. “I think it is now down to all or nothing. We could ramp them up over ten years. We have tried to have those discussions, but I don’t think there is any interest from Roads End property owners about that.” Hawker said if the council decides to move ahead with the annexation, more

if that’s any sign of what is to come for the rest of the shopping time, it should be pretty good.” Sandy Pfaff, Lincoln City Visitors and Convention Bureau director, said many merchants at hotels, restaurants and retail shops remain optimistic, but on the edge because of the uncertainty of the economy. “I have seen improvement over the past few months, so our retailers and restaurant operators are cautious,” said Pfaff. “The whole economy has turned the corner, but we are still not comfortable.” Pfaff said gross lodgings at local hotels are up five percent over last year at this time. “So we know that people are parting with their cash a little bit more and we are all cautiously optimistic,” said Pfaff. “We are just now

are competing with larger metropolitan malls in Portland, Salem and Eugene. “The larger malls that have been built inland have impacted our area,” she said. Those malls have gotten bigger and more people in the valley are staying closer to home and shopping. I don’t think we do see as much traffic because of the inland malls as we did. We will see some tourists between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but they are here because they want to be near the ocean.” Kusz and Pfafff said most merchants depend on locals to help bridge the gap and keep Lincoln City businesses open during the slow parts of the holiday shopping season. “We are really busy the week after Christmas,” said Kusz. “We see primarily tourists enjoying time off and coming to the coast to relax and to shop.” But Pfaff also believes

back were we were in 2007 and that doesn’t account for inflation. There is still work to be done. I do think things will get better, but we still have an awful lot of people who are still unemployed.” Debbie Mammone, Lincoln City finance director, said the year-to-date increase of 5.7 percent over last years gross hotel and VRD revenues is significant. “The last time we had a significant increase in the total hotel and vacation rental dwelling (VRD) revenues was 2007,” said Mammone. “It could be people have more money to spend or that they feel more comfortable about spending the money they have. We are waiting to see if it is more than just a temporary change or a permanent trend.” Pfaff said the holiday shopping season between Thanksgiving and Christmas for Lincoln City merchants is challenging because they

Newport OSP trooper honored An Oregon State Police (OSP) trooper from the Newport Area Command office was honored Nov. 16 by the Oregon Peace Officers Association (OPOA) with a special award recognizing his lifesaving effort in July 2012 to prevent a suicidal man from jumping off a Newport area bridge. The OPOA held its annual Awards Banquet November 16, 2012 at Spirit Mountain Casino and announced the presentation of special awards to several individuals. One of the awards, the OPOA “Medal of Valor” award, was presented to OSP Trooper Adam Kowing. The OPOA “Medal of Valor” may be awarded to individuals who, while serving in an official capacity with their law enforcement agency, distinguish themselves by reacting to a situation in a positive and professional manner, thereby reducing the risk of loss of life or injury to citizens. On July 4, 2012, Newport Police Department (NPD) received a report of a suicidal man who told a friend that he wanted to commit suicide by jumping off the

Yaquina Bay Bridge in Newport. After an attempt to locate was broadcast to local agencies, NPD spotted the man’s vehicle and attempted to stop it. The man attempted Adam to elude Kowing the NPD officers in heavy holiday traffic causing officers to terminate and back off. Other area agencies saw the vehicle in Waldport where the man turned his vehicle around and proceeded northbound back toward Newport. Trooper Kowing monitored radio traffic and positioned his patrol vehicle near the Yaquina Bay Bridge in a visible spot to discourage the man from accessing the bridge. After the man passed by, Trooper Kowing got behind the vehicle and followed it across the bridge until the man suddenly slammed on his brakes causing the OSP patrol vehicle to rear-end

Lincoln County residents understand the need to shop local. “Most of the retailers are selling to locals,” said Pfaff. “I think since the recession hit, locals are real conscious to support the local businesses that have been struggling. People keep that in mind all the time. I think people here really make an effort to put money back into the community.” The Lincoln City Visitors and Convention Bureau is working in partnership with local merchants, hotels and the Chinook Winds Casino to attract meetings, conferences and conventions throughout the year to help stabilize the economy. She said it is a partnership without fear of competition. “We are trying to work the market and share staff so we can reach out as a group rather than a single organization to bring in business retreats, team building sessions and weddings and

direct that business to the right venue so we don’t lose it,” said Pfaff. “This way we are looking at anything that might fit in Lincoln City that will benefit everyone.”



his vehicle. The man then got out and ran toward the bridge railing with Trooper Kowing running behind him. As the man reached the railing and began to step over the edge, Trooper Kowing grabbed his waist and pulled him back onto the pavement before he fell over a hundred feet down below. The man fought with Trooper Kowing before he was restrained with the help of NPD officers preventing him from jumping to his death. “Trooper Kowing’s decisiveness and quick actions saved this man from certain death if he had jumped from the bridge,” said OSP Sergeant Cari Boyd from the Newport Area Command office. Trooper Kowing, 25, has worked for OSP for four years.

Guest Commentary

Gracie seems trapped in perpetual puppydom Editors Note: This is the first in a series of columns written by Oregon coast author Karen R. Hessen about pets. Send your favorite pet stories to Karen so she may share them with our readers. What’s a nice, retired postal worker like me doing writing a column about pets? In spite of what you may have heard to the contrary – mail carriers like dogs. Well, most mail carriers like most dogs. Oh sure, I’ve had my run-ins and I have a few bite scars on my calves to prove it, but that’s part of the job. There are territorial cats, too, that have left their mark in my flesh. I have grown up with pets - mostly dogs and cats, but let’s not forget the

hermit crabs and the horned toad, the goats, donkey, horses and hamsters. My first pet was a Boston Terrier named “Millie,” which was short for “Million Dollar Dog.” My dad swore that was Millie’s true cost. Daddy was known to embellish. My husband, Douglas, and I have had an assortment of cats, but are currently catless. Holly is our 12-year old mixed breed “red dog.” We inherited Holly when our son-in-law passed away eleven years ago. Holly, having her canine-human bond broken at such a young age, developed a premature wisdom and maturity. Her snobbish sophistication has prevented her from ever playing with a toy. She does not know the meaning of

fun and frolic. Holly is all about loyalty to humans. Holly has recently lost her vision in one eye. She is definitely my husband’s dog, but if the food bowl is empty I am an acceptable substitute. Our other dog, Gracie, is a 9-year old Boston Terrier. Once you’ve had a “BT” it is difficult to settle on any other breed. Unlike her more mature fursibling, Holly, Gracie seems trapped in perpetual puppydom. Gracie does not know the meanings of mature and wise. She loves her toys. If I had kept all the squeakers out of Gracie’s toys, they would fill a wheelbarrow. Look up the world “playful” in the dictionary and there will be a picture of Gracie. Gracie is my dog. If the food bowl is empty, Doug is an

acceptable substitute. Doug and I have four adult children and five grandchildren. We have homes in Seaside and Forest Grove. I’ve had a number of jobs in my life; nursing, non-profit administrator, innkeeper, and health educator. But since retiring from the Postal Service, I have been pursuing my love of writing through work with mentors in online apprentice and journeyman writing programs. If you ask me, I’ll tell you my genre is inspirational non-fiction, but I seem to be finding my niche in humor.

Guest Commentary

Investing in local advertising critical to small business survival In today’s struggling retail environment, uncovering dollars to invest locally in advertising to support – and grow – your small business is an ongoing challenge. “No money to advertise!” is an all-too-frequent rationalization for not digging deeper to find those necessary and needed business investment dollars. But where do you look to find dollars for advertising and promotion? Here are six possible areas to explore: • Consider reducing your overall payroll expense by reviewing your business’s

hours of operation. Opening an hour later or closing an hour earlier (without impacting customer service or revenue) generates 20 hours of Chuck reduced Nau expense each month, money that can be converted into a $200/ month ad budget. • Bring your vendors and

suppliers into the conversation by asking if co-op ad dollars or extra promotional dollars exist to advertise their products. Provide enhanced product placement in your store or in your ads for those vendors willing to contribute to the promotion of their products or services. • Review your current inventory and purchasing habits and controls. Is it possible to tighten your inventory without impacting customer service or revenue, then shift those savings into an advertising campaign? • Explore initiating a neighborhood marketing effort.

Ask your local Chamber of Commerce or economic development agency if promotional dollars or marketing opportunities are available to businesses. This strategy may also open the door for new local businesses to partner with! • Consider that a small reduction in your own income this year – and a resulting expansion in your ad budget – may reap big benefits for your business (and you) down the road. • Lastly, clarify where your business dollars are going in support of the local community. Do some non-

profit services or charities duplicate others? Would a realignment of your financial commitments help your business in this difficult operating environment. “No money to advertise!” Really?

Sheriff’s Tips

Refrain from giving pets as gifts this holiday season Sheriff’s Tips By Sheriff Dennis Dotson

With the holidays just around the corner, you may have discovered a pet of some kind on that wish list that your child keeps reminding you about. Now is the best time to decide if this wish is one that is going to be fulfilled or one that is just going to have to wait a while. The decision to purchase a pet is one that requires a lot of thought. Since the actual purchase of the pet and necessary supplies can add up to quite a bit of money, you must

decide if you’re ready financially to support a pet. Make sure to take into consideration vet bills, housing, nutritional needs, grooming needs, and toys. If you’re getting a dog or cat, be sure to figure in the price of neutering or spaying. You also need to determine whether or not the family has time to spend with a pet. This not only means do the children have time, but do YOU have time. Once the newness of this type of gift wears off, someone is still going to have a time commitment towards this pet. Unlike the toy that got broken or the jeans that are soon outgrown, this new pet (regardless of what type it is: dog, fish, bird, etc) is going to require attention for a much longer

period of time. The amount of space you have is also a factor. Is there room in your household for this pet? Some animals require minimal space, while others require lots of space. In addition to housing, large animals will need a large area to run. You need to determine if you have sufficient room for the pet that your heart yearns. If you’re renting, does your landlord permit animals and will they require an extra deposit to cover the pet? How will the pet affect neighbors? Please check this out ahead of time - sneaking the pet in is not fair to anyone and will only cause heartache in the end. Will this pet cause allergic reac-

tions to anyone in the family? You can test this by visiting people with the same type of pet you are considering. The Animal Shelter may even have the pet you are seeking. Some animals are prohibited by city and county ordinances in some areas. You will want to check ahead of time if you plan to give a friend or family member a pet such as an Easter bunny or baby chick. Remember - NEVER spontaneously decide to purchase a pet - it’s not fair to anyone involved.

Voices of Lincoln County Politics and Small Business

How many times since the election has House Speaker John Boehner said he has to fight to keep the highest tax bracket low to “protect small businesses.” He’s talking about business owners who make over $250,000 per year--that’s over $20,000 per month! That’s not gross receipts in the cash register, either. That’s take-home profit. Is there any Lincoln County business making anywhere near that kind of money? I know too many businesses that are just scraping by at best, but none that are raking it in like that. If some local business is making that much money, it can buy more equipment and hire more of our neighbors. Reinvesting profit makes the business stronger and supports our community, in-

stead of just piling up profit for the owner like Scrooge McDuck. The business owner would still be taking home plenty. Of course, most businesses around here don’t have the problem of having too much profit! Too many politicians say they are fighting for small business, but their policies don’t do anything for us. We as real small businesses need to stand together so we have a real voice in Washington, and in Salem. I joined the Main Street Alliance of Oregon because it is a real grassroots organization fighting for real Oregon businesses. David Cramer Lincoln City

Help Save the Bijou

We have a chance to save one of our crown jewels — the Bijou —— and we

can’t let this opportunity pass us by. The Bijou is now involved in a race against time to raise $40,000 —— enough to buy the high tech film projector that movie studios have forced on 1000 small theatres like the Bijou so that they can show forthcoming movies in the new digitized format. People want to live and vacation where there are theatres, and the Bijou is something special — an historic theatre, one of the few, if not the only one on the Oregon coast. Other countries handle this differently. In some, the conversion is a national priority paid for by government grants. But here it’s simply “convert or die”. Please contribute by going to or stop by the Bijou. You CAN make a difference. Paul Marx Lincoln City

New park rules aimed to keep parks accessible, easy to use for all Sayde Moser The News Guard

If you’re thinking about planning a family reunion, outside wedding or other type of event at a state park and aren’t sure if you need a permit or not, well you’re not alone. Fortunately for you, the Division 16 Oregon Administrative Rules that govern “non-traditional park activities” has been revised to help clear up the ambiguity about permits and eliminate outdated rules. The revised rules went into effect Nov. 1 after a two-year review process. This process included several different revisions, public comment and opportunities for interested parties to sit on the committee and have a say in the process. “We wanted to make it as easy as possible to use the beach and parks, even if it is just a small group, said David Gomberg, who co-owns Northwest Winds Kites and Toys in Lincoln City and Seaside and Gomberg Kite Productions. “People should be allowed to come out and use the beach and the rules should help facilitate the local economy, not restrict it.” Lincoln City businesses have urged the state to be cautious in its ongoing rewrite of rules governing beach use, warning that restrictive or vague regulations could damage the area’s tourism economy. Gomberg said the new wording

is a positive step. “It is an improvement over where we started,” he said. One of Gomberg’s biggest issues with Division 16 was the requirement that any “organized group” obtain a permit. His concern was how to define an organized group and whose responsibility it was to define it. “The rules were really quite vague and during this process of revising them, we were able to get information from the applicant side of things to help clear them up,” said Richard Walkoski with Oregon Parks and Recreation Division. “Originally there was just not enough information to help determine whether or not you needed to get a permit for your park activity.” The purpose of the Division 16 rules is intended to secure public health and safety, protect park NEWS GUARD FILE PHOTO resources and facilities and assist The Oregon Parks Department’s revised rules for beach use took effect Nov. 1 after a public review process. in maintaining facilities and services in instances where a person nine months in advance of the that we feel will satisfy everyone,” defining an “organized group” requests to use state park land or planned date.

Gill net fishing being phased out Measure 81, which proposed a complete ban of gill net fishing on the Columbia River may have been defeated, but commercial fishermen aren’t out of rough water yet. Washington and Oregon Commissioners met Nov. 15 in Seaside with Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to finalize a proposal that has been two months in the making. The proposal, which would phase out gill nets on the main stem of the Columbia River by 2017, was a response to a letter Gov. Kitzhaber wrote on Aug. 9 to find a “long term solution to divisive conflicts that occur between recreational and commercial fisheries over the allocation of harvests as well as the use of gill nets in non-tribal main stem commercial fisheries.” The new rules proposed by Gov. Kitzhaber will still heavily restrict the use of gillnets and promote alternative methods for commercial fisheries. “I would like to apologize to the commercial fishermen in the room for what’s happening and my personal inability to change it,” said Bruce Buckmaster, a representative for Salmon for All, who sat on the board responsible for writing and revising the proposal. “I don’t presume to know why it’s happening the way it is, but I am very clear on what is happening. The plan I see in front of us, only accidentally has any conservation impacts. This is clearly allocation and the damages for uncertainty is solely on the backs of commercial fishermen.” The long-term goals of the plan include allocating 80 percent of spring Chinook, sockeye, tule fall Chinook and upriver brights

7th Annual

11th Hour

for sports fishermen, leaving the remaining 20 percent for commercial use. Summer Chinook will be 100 percent allocated for recreational fishermen. Gill nets will be banned entirely from the main stem and only allowed in off-channel areas by 2017. Conservation Director Jim Martin said he would like to see punitive measures put in place for illegal gillnetters. “I think it is very important to have the right rules and incentives in place against illegal gillnetting or processing illegal gillnetted fish.” He suggested those caught using gill nets on the main stem or processing illegally caught fish should lose their permit for life and their boat. “A slap on the hand won’t do it in this case.” To compensate gill netters for the loss of access to the main stem, up to 1.25 million spring Chinook, 4.7 million coho and 750,000 select-area bright fall Chinook will be added to the off-channels. Commercial fishing will still be allowed in the main stem with alternative gear such as seine nets, which are currently illegal in Oregon. Jim Wells, President of Salmon for All, predicted that these new rules would be the end of commercial fishing on the Columbia. Steve Fick, President of Fishhawk Fisheries in Astoria, feels that commercial fishers have been railroaded in this process. “Their plan includes a lot of assumptions about what they will do for us, and plenty of concrete plans for what they will do to us,” he said. An estimated 200 people showed up to the work group on Nov. 15 and several commercial fishermen voiced their concern about these new changes during the meeting, but it did little to change the commission-

ers decision to accept the plan and agree to take it to their respective commissions for adoption. “We need to be able to fish out on the Columbia as we have the last 100 years,” stated Chris Cameron. “There’s not enough room for all of us in the off-channels.” Of the 36 people who spoke during public comment, many voiced their agreement with the new changes. “I believe that when an industry becomes obsolete or out dated in its methods, it’s not this body’s job or either state’s job to protect anyone’s job,” said life-long sports fisherman Chuck Miller. “It’s the job of this group to protect the resource, which is the fish, regardless of what the split in allocation is.” John Weed, another recreational fisherman, stating that sport fishing helps the local economy more than commercial fishing does. He said he has family that flies in from all over the country to enjoy the salmon fishing season. “Enhancing this fishery will be very important to the local economy,” he said. “When people come here to fish, it brings in money for hotels, restaurants, flights and thousands and thousands of dollars are spent right here in our local economy.” A transitional period of five years will be implemented to help steer commercial fishermen towards alternative nets and also enhance the off-channels. During this time, sport fishing will get 70 percent of the Spring Chinook and sockeye and sixty percent of summer Chinook and upriver brights. Proposed off-channel enhancements for 2013 include one million spring Chinook, 920,000 Coho and 500,000 select area bright fall Chinook. Gill nets will

still be allowed in the main stem during this period, but commercial fishermen will be given incentives to utilize other types of nets, including seines and some experimental nets. It has not been solidified what the incentives will be. The respected commissions will track the implementation of the goals and results, with an initial review at the end of 2014. If the initial assumptions prove wrong and there is a 0-5 percent negative economic impact during the transition, due to insufficient space for commercial fishers, significantly lower than expected economic returns or significantly lower than then expected main stem commercial fishers using selective gears, the commission will determine the cause and make adjustments to stay on track. Oregon will make its final decision on whether or not to adopt the proposal on Dec. 7 in Portland. Washington is scheduled to vote on it in Olympia on Dec. 14. A full copy of the draft management strategies of the Columbia River recreational and commercial fisheries is available at dfw.

A third round of crab quality testing will occur in late November or early December, and the results will be used to determine if the ocean commercial season should open Dec.16, be further delayed in all three states, or be split into two areas with different opening dates.

The opening of the ocean commercial Dungeness crab season from Point Arena, Calif., north will be delayed at least through Dec. 15 to allow crab quality to improve.

Pow Wow

From page A1

This is the 35th year the Siletz Tribe has celebrated the signing of Public Law 95-195, which re-established government-to-government relations between the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians and the federal government. The Siletz Tribe was terminated from federal recognition in August 1954. In the late 1960s, tribal leaders determined that the only way to preserve and revitalize Siletz Tribal sovereignty, community and culture was for the Siletz Tribe to regain its status as a Tribe recognized by the United States. In November 1977, after years of intense lobbying, Congress and President Jimmy Carter approved Public Law 95-195, which reinstated recognition of the Siletz as a federal Indian Tribe. The Siletz Tribe was

the second in the nation – and the first in Oregon – to achieve restoration. Dedicated to improving the quality of life of its nearly 4,900 members, the Tribe puts strong emphasis on the education, health and social well-being of all its members. Significant Tribal accomplishments since Restoration include opening the original health clinic in 1991 and a new much larger clinic in 2010; building more than 100 homes and multiple dwellings for Tribal members, including 20 units at Neachesna Village in Lincoln City that opened in 2009, plus another eight units there and 19 apartments in Siletz that opened in 2010; completing the Siletz Dance House in 1996; opening the Tenas Illahee Childcare Center in 2003; opening the Tillicum Fitness Center and a new USDA food distribution warehouse

in Siletz in 2008; and opening the Siletz Rec Center in 2009. Through its economic development division, the Siletz Tribal Business Corporation, the Tribe purchased the Lincoln Shores office complex in Lincoln City in 2001; opened the Siletz Gas & Mini-Mart in Siletz in 2004, the Logan Road RV Park in Lincoln City in 2004 and the Hee Hee Illahee RV Resort in Salem in 2006. The Tribe purchased the Imprints printing business in Lincoln City in 2008. It also opened O’Downey’s Irish Pub and Family Dining in Depoe Bay in 2010. The Tribe also played a lead role in opening Siletz Valley School in 2003 and the Siletz Valley Early College Academy in 2006. Chinook Winds Casino in Lincoln City opened in May 1995. In June 2004, the Siletz Tribe purchased the former Shilo Inn adjacent to the

casino and opened Chinook Winds Casino Resort. Chinook Winds Golf Resort opened in April 2005 when the Tribe purchased the former Lakeside Golf and Fitness Center in Lincoln City. The combination of Tribal employees and those at Chinook Winds Casino Resort has allowed the Siletz Tribe to become the largest employer in Lincoln County. The Siletz Tribe has honored its tradition of sharing within the community by distributing more than $10.1 million through the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund and other Tribal resources. Chinook Winds has donated nearly $2.3 million in cash and fundraising items since 1995. It also provides in-kind donations of convention space for various fund-raisers as well as technical support, advertising and manpower for events.


A welcoming ceremony at the annual Restoration Pow Wow at Chinook Winds Casino Resort included traditional Indian dances.

Local firemen suit Highway crash near Otis sends two to hospital up to shop for toys Jeremy C. Ruark The News Guard

As a member of the North Lincoln Fire and Rescue District 1, Kyle Riebe usually suits up to fight fires or help rescue people in distress, but on Nov. 16 Riebe joined fellow firemen Jim Kusz and Marc McPherson to go shopping. This was no ordinary shopping adventure though. The three were shopping at Toys ‘R’ Us at the Tanger Factory Outlet Center as part of the fire districts annual Christmas toy drive. “I am picking out baby dolls, a fire and rescue Lego set and a big toy Coast Guard helicopter,” said Riebe. “This is a great thing to do for kids because there are many children whose families don’t have the money to buy toys for the holiday and they go without having any Christmas presents. That’s really sad to see. This project gives them those gifts and helps make them feel more loved.” McPherson said the toy collection is one of the fire and rescue district’s most important projects. “We have anywhere from 400 to 500 families in the area that need help with the Christmas presents,” said McPherson. “We’ve placed buckets all over town to collect toys and food this holiday just to make everyone’s holiday a little better.” McPherson said the toy

collection is targeting children from infants to age 17. The collection barrels can be found at various shopping locations in Lincoln City including Safeway and Les Schwab stores. “We’re talking about 1,500 children that we are collecting toys for,” said McPherson. “That’s a lot of toys.” Families that are in need are referred to the Lincoln City Elks Club to fill out paperwork to help them qualify for the toys and food donations. “Many of the families in need are at the point where they won’t have any Christmas, so this is something as a community we need to do for each other,” said Kusz. The district used a $500 gift card donated by the Tanger Factory Outlet Center for the shopping spree at Toys ‘R’ Us. The toys will be delivered the Saturday before Christmas to the needy families. As for what he looks for when shopping for the kids, Kusz admits it’s all about firemen. “I always go for the firemen toys,” said Kusz. “Fire trucks and fire hats. But seriously, we do have a team of consultants that help us find the right toys.” For more details about the community toy drive, contact North Lincoln Fire and Rescue District 1 at 541996-2233.

Two people received serious injuries Saturday afternoon Nov. 17 following a single vehicle crash along Highway 18 east of Otis when their vehicle traveled off the roadway and collided into a tree. Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers from the Newport Area Command office investigated the crash and cited the driver. According to Sergeant Cari Boyd, on November 17, 2012 at approximately 3:10 p.m., a Honda Accord driven by Michael E. Moir, 58, from Canby, was west-

bound on Highway 18 near milepost 11 approaching a left curve when the right side tires went onto the soft shoulder. The car continued off the roadway and down a short embankment where the passenger side collided into a tree. Moir and passenger Pamela Waite, 57, from Canby, received non-life threatening, but serious, injuries. They were transported by ambulance to Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital and later transferred to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland. Both were using

safety restraints. The investigating trooper cited Michael Moir for Fail to Drive in a Lane.

OSP was assisted at the scene by North Lincoln Fire & Rescue.

Police purchase two replacement cars

Good as gold

JIM FOSSUM The News Guard

The Lincoln City Police Department has replaced two motor vehicles as part of its annual upgrade of its fleet. Discontinuation of the Crown Victoria police line prompted LCPD to purchase a Ford Taurus Interceptor and a Ford Explorer Interceptor, LCPD Chief Steven Bechard said. “We got a new vehicle to replace a patrol car and one to replace a sergeant’s vehicle,” he said. “We can no longer get the Crown Vics, which have been a staple of our police fleet for almost 10 years now.”

Josh Melton and Chris Cole were victorious during a Special Olympics-Oregon regional swimming competition Sunday, Nov. 4, in Corvallis. Melton was first in the 25-meter freestyle and third in the 25-meter backstroke, while Cole was first in the 25- and 15-meter floatation races. Newt Elliot was second in the 25-meter freestyle and third in the 25-meter backstroke; Debra Hackworth was third in the 25-meter backstroke and fifth in the 25-meter freestyle; Aaron Aichiles was second in the 15-meter walk race and fourth in the 15-meter floatation race; and Shelby Keyes was eighth in the 25-meter freestyle. The team placed third in the 100-yard freestyle relay.

The department purchased a 2013 Taurus Interceptor, a modified version of the Taurus designed specifically for law enforcement, and a new Ford Explorer Interceptor to replace a 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe. Both vehicles needing replacement had more than 100,000 miles on them, Bechard said. “These are just replacement cars,” he said. “We haven’t increased the size of our fleet. We replace vehicles every year on a rotating basis so that we can even our budget. We spend a little more each year to keep a modern fleet.”

Arrest, police foot chase, tense negotiations, re-arrest A Yachats man faces several charges following a domestic disturbance that led to a chase by law enforcement agents and tense negotiations. On Nov.16, at about 3:17 p.m. Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a domestic disturbance at an address

on Coolidge Lane in Yachats. Following the investigation Christian Ronald Batchelder, 20 of Yachats, was arrested for Assault IV and Domestic Menacing and secured in handcuffs. While deputies escorted Batchelder to the patrol vehicle he escaped and ran to the nearby ocean rock

bluff where he threatened to jump into the ocean. Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office deputies, assisted by an Oregon State Police Trooper and the South County Water Rescue, negotiated with Batchelder for about an hour and half. Batchelder family members were summoned to the

scene at which time Batchelder returned to police custody without further incident. Batchelder was transported to the Lincoln County Jail where he was charged with Assault IV(DOM), Menacing, Resisting Arrest, and Escape III with a total bail of $60,000.

Coastal Youth Taft High School to host college week

Kindergarten readiness classes being offered Registration is open for the first session of “LIFT: Learning Is Fun Together!” LIFT is a free, twiceweekly class where parents learn nurturing parenting skills and strategies to teach kindergarten readiness to their 3- to 5-year old children. LIFT classes are sponsored by Lincoln County School District and are located in Lincoln City, Newport, Toledo and Waldport. LIFT is based on the philosophy that parents are the most important teachers of their children and that young children learn primarily through play. LIFT classes provide a variety of fun, play-based learning

activities that show parents how they can help their children reach their potential and be successful in school. Weekly activities focus on kindergarten academic and social readiness skills centered on four lovingkindness education themes: being kind to self, being kind to others, being kind to animals, and being kind to the earth. For more information and to register in Lincoln City: Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to noon at Oceana Family Literacy Center, in the lower unit at 1426 N.W. 15th St.; 541-921-1865. Classes are bilingual English/Spanish.


Grace Brack and her mom, Kristen, enjoy some one-on-one reading time at the Newport LIFT class last year.

To assist students in preparing for and applying to college, Taft High 7-12 in Lincoln City is one of seven pilot schools in Oregon that will host College Application Week. Community support is welcome to help make this first-time event a success, Vicky Roller, Taft counselor, said. “With support from our community, students can connect to resources available outside of the classroom that will help them prepare for college,” Roller said. “Our students would appreciate and benefit from your help and support as they take a big step toward going to college.” Roller said more than 60 percent of all jobs in Oregon will require some form of education and training after high school. “That means one simple thing: the more you learn, the more you’ll earn,” she said. Oregon College Application Week will kick off on Monday, Dec. 10. The goal

is to provide an opportunity for all Oregon high school seniors to complete and file college applications. While the focus is on helping all students, an extra effort will be given to first-generation, lowincome, and other students who might face barriers in applying to college. Taft High was selected by the Oregon University System and the Oregon College Application Week Steering Committee to be a pilot school for this activity. During the week, Taft students will learn about their options for education and training beyond high school, meet with college representatives, and receive assistance with applications. Students who participate will be eligible for giveaways. If you would like to be involved with this event, please contact Roller at 541- 996-2115 or by email at Vicky.Roller@lincoln.k12.

Oh, Deer

(Where did my flowers go?) Along Garden Paths


Hailee Castenada and Jayden Howland have fun putting together ornaments for the Cultural Center’s Community Christmas Tree. The tree lighting is set for Nov. 23 beginning at 5 p.m.

By Karen Brown

A recent article about the increasing population of deer in urban settings suggested the need for some ideas as to how to garden happily in spite of Bambi in your yard. I know that there is a huge population of deer in Lincoln City itself, and certainly in surrounding areas. In order to avoid frustration with deer, you must garden in ways that make your plants either unaccessible or undesirable, or both. And you must be willing to overlook the occasional nibble, because fawns, in particular, have to taste everything, and even the grown-ups sometimes forget what was good and what was not. Landscape with plants they don’t like. There are lists of plants that deer usually don’t eat available. I composed one myself, which you can pick up at Connie Hansen Garden on a Tuesday between 10:00 and 2:00. No list is perfect for every area, because there are different kinds of deer in different areas, but these suggestions are a good starting point for using plants that are not attractive to them. Rhododendrons are good shrubs to use, also heathers, boxwood, juniper and pine. Avoid azaleas, arborvitae, and escallonia. Dahlias, calendula, lavender and rosemary are safe. Roses, fuchsias, columbine and pansies are not. Daffodils are OK, but tulips, no. The list of good stuff covers two columns of a sheet of paper, so the choices are many. Most vegetables are vulnerable, but most herbs are not bothered. If you are determined to grow your favorites, and they are deer favorites, too, then you must use other measures to protect them. Fencing is one possibility, with six feet needed to avoid jumping over. This is usually necessary for a vegetable garden, although small amounts of food can be grown by covering the plot with something like bird netting or chicken wire. I’ve used that over strawberries, entire plants of which will be eaten to the ground overnight if not protected. Some folks have found that clear fishing line strung around plots seems to deter the deer. It’s a little less obvious than a fence of stock wire or wood, if appearance is an issue. However, I can’t guarantee it. In some cases, you can cover just the vulnerable plant with a tomato cage or inverted wire basket. This is especially useful for newly planted things that may not be as tasty once they grow up. Another approach is to make the plants seem to be something they aren’t by applying nasty smelling concoctions to the foliage. Deer don’t like the smell of blood meal, which also acts as a fertilizer when it washes into the soil. It can be sprinkled on the foliage, but you wouldn’t want it on food, and the smell may deter you as well if used near your patio or walk. It may also attract dogs to roll in it, with undesirable consequences. There are a variety of commercial products available, if you want to get really serious about this. It may work best to change brands frequently so the deer don’t get used to the odor and ignore it. You can cut your losses by discouraging the visits before they become a habit, either by protecting the plants right away or doing something to make the site unattractive. Now, if elk would read these rules, those of us who live with them would be much happier. They eat what deer don’t and what deer do, and jump even higher. The herds are bigger and so is the damage. But for me, gardening is still fun anyway.

Oh Christmas Tree T

he members of the Lincoln City Cultural Center, with generous assistance from Kenny’s IGA, Noble Creek Tree Farm, Pacific Power and Let There Be Arts, will be kicking off the holiday season with a community tree lighting party. The big event, filled with carols, refreshments and Christmas cheer, will begin at 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 23, at the center, 540 NE Highway 101 in Lincoln City. The tree, which has been donated by the Thompson family and Noble Creek Tree Farm, will be installed next to the new monument sign on the west lawn of the cultural center. It will be decorated with ornaments made

by the students and teachers of Let There Be Arts, and installed with help from the crews at Pacific Power. The fun will begin at 5 p.m., with carols led by the Sweet Adelines. If weather permits, the group will gather around the tree on the lawn for the tree lighting at around 5:15 p.m. Afterward, the public will be invited back inside to enjoy complimentary fruits, cakes, cookies and other desserts, along with hot drinks, provided by Kenny’s IGA and the Morgan family. Santa Claus will be there, ready to greet children and hear wishes from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Other family activities include a make-and-take ornament station (led by the ar-

Angels Anonymous to host Angels Ball The Board of Directors of Angels Anonymous would like to extend this invitation to join them at this year’s Angels Ball. Angels Anonymous’ annual fundraiser is the most elegant event of the holiday season for Lincoln County. This year they are featuring Blackbird, a Beatles Tribute Band, also playing 70’s and 80’s music. Each year the creativity of the businesses and individuals who sponsor and decorate the trees to be auctioned at the Angels Ball provides a panorama of incredible beauty. This year’s event is held in Chinook Winds Casino Convention Center. Viewing of the trees and wreaths begins on Wednesday, Nov. 28 and will continue through Thursday, Friday and Saturday, concluding with the auction Saturday evening, Dec. 1, at the Holiday Ball. In addition to the trees auctioned, there are also other auctions (both oral and silent), and raffles throughout the three days concluding at the Holiday Ball. Bring the whole family to view this wonderland season featuring exceptional trees decorated beyond imagination at the Festival of Trees (free admission). The final bidding will occur at the Holiday Ball Saturday Night.

Enjoy a holiday home tour

Handel’s Messiah Dec 2 and 9 The Christmas portion of Handel’s Messiah will be performed on Sunday Dec. at 2 p.m. at the Tillamook Nazarene Church, 2611 Third Street and also on Sunday December 9, 3 p.m. at Salishan Long House, 7660 Highway 101 North, Gleneden Beach. Dr. Albert Thompson directs the performance. It features local musicians and soloists with Nate Sanders as organist. The Midway Chorus and Orchestra is a group of 100 musicians from Lincoln and Tillamook counties. A core group has performed

the Messiah every other year for over 30 years in this area. The Messiah was Handel’s only devotional work, written in 24 days in 1741 when the composer was 56. At its first performance, the audience was so taken with the “Hallelujah Chorus,” they all stood up. Since that time, audiences have stood during that chorus to show their appreciation. Admission to the performances in Tillamook and Gleneden Beach are free, but an offering will be collected. For more information call 503-965-6555.

The Newport Symphony Orchestra announces tickets for their Holiday Home Tour are now on sale. The Holiday Home Tour will take place in Newport Dec. 8 and 9, and will include tours of four unique Newport houses.

Tour designers Betty Stier of Finishing Touches by Betty, Shannon Rackowski of ReDo Designs and Larry Tapanen will transform the houses into places of enchantment and joy. Two of the homes will have musicians performing throughout each day, including the vocal groups CoastalAires, Women of Note, High Tide Quartet, and the Polka Dots, plus combinations of strings, piano and guitar by local musicians. The Tour will include the opportunity to purchase limited editions of the print Winter Surf II by Michael Gibbons which he created and donated espe-

cially for the NSO. The Tour Bake Sale will be at the Ernest Bloch House, and there visitors will find special items for holiday parties as well as Christmas cookies and breads. Proceeds from all sales will be used to support the activities of the Newport Symphony Orchestra, with a portion donated to the Newport Performing Arts Center.

Bear tracks

Hospital trick or treat collects hundreds of pounds of food for Backpack Program There’s really no trick to collecting 700 pounds of food for hungry kids if you are collecting from Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital employees. “Our employees stepped up to the plate and did their part to make sure no child leaves school on Fridays to face a weekend without food,” said Connie Isaac, North Lincoln Hospital Foundation executive director On Halloween, ambassadors from the Samaritan Employee Caring Campaign dressed up in spooky cos-

tumes and offered a sweet treat to any employee who donated a food item to the Backpack Program. They collected over 700 pounds of food for local children. The Backpack Program is a direct action program against hunger. Backpacks stocked with nutritious, child-friendly, easy-toprepare food are discreetly distributed at school to chronically hungry children before weekends and school breaks. The program helps nearly 200 children each week.

During the annual Samaritan Employee Caring Campaign, hospital employees pledge their support to the North Lincoln Hospital Foundation. Donations help the hospital and clinics in a variety of ways — from new medical equipment, to scholarships for low-income patients, to Employee Emergency Fund grants for coworkers who are experiencing financial difficulties. This year, Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital employees pledged over $82,000 to the foundation.


This 375-pound bear was taken by Bob Duby on Oct. 24 on the Siletz River. The long, hot season was good for the bear’s food supply, Duby said. There was an abundance of berries and fresh grass, which made the meat delicious with hardly any wild taste.

Counting your blessings I challenged my church to write 100 things they were thankful for. Not wanting to be a hypocrite, I took the challenge myself. It had been several years since I had done this, but I remembered feeling so good after completing this list. After making a list of 20 things, my mind went blank. And so began my negative Kelli self-talk, “Re- Westmark ally, Kelli? Really? That’s all you can think of.” Not wanting to pick on myself any longer, I went back to the basics. Things like clean water, food, electricity. Some friends in Boston are still without these basic things now weeks after Hurricane Sandy, and were just happy to recharge their

phones staying a couple nights in Lincoln City. Not to mention friends in Indonesia that live daily without clean water. I’m thankful that before Grandma Westmark died she hand-stitched a quilt that I can wrap up in and be warm. The homeless couple who showed up at my church a couple weeks ago, had not had the luxury of a warm bed for several weeks. I am thankful to pastor a loving church family who started serving this couple, finding them housing, food, clothing. He quickly found a job and this couple is getting back on their feet again. They asked if I might officiate their wedding, and November 20 the church came together to provide a cake, a wedding dress, flowers, music, and are even standing up with the couple as they say their vows. I am thankful for the opportunity to make a difference every

day in peoples’ lives. I am thankful I get to live every day with purpose. Recently, I was invited to audition to be in a musical at the Lincoln City Cultural Center called, “Destiny” which is showing December 14, 15 and 16. It was humbling to be chosen to be Mary (the mother of Jesus), and I get to hold a real baby! The baby represents hope. And I am thankful to not only be holding hope, but to live hope, in a really dark world. Make your list. Check it twice. What are you thankful for? Take the challenge and write 100 things you are thankful for. You might be surprised when your list exceeds one-hundred. Kelli Westmark is a pastor at the Lincoln City Church of the Nazarene. She can be reached at 541-994-2981.
