New VRD report to be reviewed Jan. 22

For the past six and one half years Steven Bechard has been Lincoln City’s top cop. But in mid January Bechard will retire at age 58. He is wrapping up his work with the city this week and reflecting on his accomplishments as Police Chief. “When I first arrived we decided there were a number of things we wanted to accomplish right away,” said Bechard. “We began preparing department policies, a strategic plan and reviewing finances. There were a lot of projects.”

The future of vacation rental dwellings (VRDs) in Lincoln City could be decided in the New Year ahead as the Lincoln City Council reviews a new 72-page document called the Lincoln City VDR Consensus Project Final Report. “There were concerns and unresolved issues around the VRDs and the city council wanted outside help in facilitating a community process for resolution,” said Alison Robertson, Lincoln City assistant ur-

members representing a variety of community stakeholders to develop the study. The council provided $50,000 for the effort. Public meetings were

held between May and August to gather comments, concerns and suggestions toward resolving issues centering around parking, traffic, noise and trash associated with the short term rental of homes in Lincoln City. “The vacation rentals are here to stay,” said Birke. “But people want to limit where they are located. It is clear that just about everybody wants to balance quality of life with a vibrant economy and VRDs are undoubtedly part of that economy.” The report outlines how the city established rules

Despite heavy opposition from dozens of Roads End residents during four public hearings, the Lincoln City Council voted Dec. 10 to approve an ordinance annexing approximately 246 acres of land in the Roads End area. Following the vote, Roads End business operator and resident Stacy Baird told the council during the public comment period that he is holding each member personally responsible for destroying his business. “You have extracted $1.2 million out of Roads End and you have destroyed my business and taken away something that cannot be replaced,” said Baird. Baird is a remodeling and construction contractor and believes higher taxes with annexation would prevent his Roads End clients from using his services. Before the final vote, Lincoln City Councilor Chester Noreikis told the audience that he was truly sorry the annexation process could not be less confrontational. Reading from a prepared statement, Noreikis said, “I believe the city is completely justified in requiring consents to annex in exchange for water service (to Roads End from Lincoln City). I also believe the Board of Directors of the Roads End Water District is responsible for any hardship felt by Roads End

Middle school sports movement under way Jim Fossum The News Guard

What began last spring with a highly attended meeting of enthusiastic parents, interested civic leaders and committed coaches has evolved into a movement that could bring organized middle school sports to Taft High 7-12. Buoyed by recognition of the need to build a better athletic environment through the grass roots level, community members and Taft High supporters have undertaken steps to include seventh- and eighth-graders along with the freshman through senior classes.

Open 8a-7p Mon-Fri, 8a-6p Sat

“They’re really passionate now to bring back middle school sports,” Taft High Principal Scott Reed said. “There’s renewed enthusiasm. Communication has started about what it will look like cost-wise and time-wise.” Leading the movement is the Taft High Tigers Booster Club, whose longtime president, Kathy Joy, is overseeing the possibility of including younger students who walk the same corridors and share the same classrooms as the ninth through 12th graders. “Boosters, along with additional community members, believe that bringing

middle school sports to Taft 7-12 will make for a wellrounded student-athlete,” Joy said. Still, the prevailing opinion in virtually all circles and in nearly any discussion of expanding school sports is that the existing community- and City-run programs have done an exceptional job cultivating youngsters for their athletic futures. “It should be done in conjunction/with the City programs, to not compete against, but be a win for the kids -- save money, share facilities,” said Taft swimming

Lincoln County School District named in $2 million lawsuit “All three of the district employees involved lost their credentials because of this situation.” Brandt said the lawsuit seeks past and future counseling treatment and noneconomical damage which would include emotional distress. In a printed statement, Lincoln County School District Superintendant Tom Rinearson said the district was evaluating the lawsuit. “We are committed to ensuring that the lawsuit does not distract from our goal of safely educating our students.” The release also stated that “during the 2009-2010 school year, district officials learned of concerns surrounding some studenton-student behavior in a first-grade classroom at Sam Case School. When the District Office was made aware of these concerns, it fully cooperated with law enforcement and also conducted its own investigation. No charges were filed against the children who engaged in the conduct that formed the basis of the concerns. “After the conclusion of the investigation, the district conducted additional trainings, reviewed its policies, made changes where appropriate to maximize its ability to prevent student-

on-student misconduct and to raise awareness of issues relating to harassment and other student-related concerns.” “We worked with the families of the involved firstgrade students to ensure that there was no break in any child’s education and that these students received all necessary educational services,” stated Rinearson. The printed release also states, “Since receiving the tort claims, the district has continued to work with the families, through their lawyers, in an attempt to address the families’ concerns and to resolve the dispute. Unfortunately, the district’s efforts have been unsuccessful so far. The district, through its insurance company and attorney, will continue working with the families through this process until the issue is resolved.” Brandt said the next step in the lawsuit, filed in mid November, would be conferences with the attorneys from both sides, reports to the court, discovery and motion deadlines and a trial date set. Brandt believes a trial could begin next September.

Wastewater advisory posted at Nye Beach Newport Public Works officials are asking that the public avoid contact with Nye Creek where it discharges to the ocean at Nye Beach following a wastewater spill. On Sunday, Dec. 9, the Northside Lift Station located on the northeast quadrant of NW Nye and NW 3rd Streets in Newport shut down due to communication failure. Wastewater operators responded but the lift station spilled approximately 2,500 gallons of raw wastewater into the Nye Beach stormwater system which discharges at the Nye Beach outfall on Beach Street. The lift station was returned to operation yesterday afternoon and is no longer spilling. Advisory signs have been posted at Nye Beach and at Don Davis Park warning of potential raw wastewater contamination. The postings will be removed when

tests at the outfall indicate fecal levels are within acceptable limits. Please avoid contact with Nye Creek where it discharges to the ocean at Nye Beach until the advisory is lifted.

yourself and to every single person, no ifs, ands or buts.” One child Santa said he would never forget is a little girl who was mentally and physically challenged that would visit the Prewitt holiday decorations. “She would come with a penny to put in the mail box,” said Santa. “She came each night even though she had trouble walking and speaking, but it was so important for her to show up every night and put her one penny in the box. That was the most amazing thing to see this little girl give to a worthy cause. She was definitely the spirit of Christmas.” The money collected goes to local charities. Each year, Lincoln City’s Santa has become more and more popular. His holiday appearances now include a stop at the Lincoln City Christmas Cottage where he greets children and rides a fire truck to Taft where he and Mrs. Santa Claus huddle inside a small trailer and listen to dozens of children eagerly tell what they want for Christmas. On Dec. 21 at 6 p.m., Santa will appear at the Dorchester House Retirement Center to greet residents and children. “That is our biggest event,” said Santa. “We have children lined up

around the block that night. It is for everyone who wants to come tell Santa what they would like for Christmas.” Santa said the Dorchester House event is very important for the elderly residents. It brings them back to their childhood for a few moments,” he said. “You can see that transformation. It takes them back to a time when they had fun and Santa was real to them. It is as close to magic as you will ever see.” Santa said the requests from children are mostly

what you might think, dolls, trucks, but on occasion he will get what he called “heart-tugger” requests. “A relative or a family member has died and they want them to come back or there is a divorce and the child wants mom and dad back together again,” he said. “Those are the ones that truly tug at your heart. I tell them that there are some things that Santa doesn’t have control over, but I also tell them that mom and dad loves them and I try to make it positive.”

By Jeremy C. Ruark The News Guard NEWPORT— The Lincoln County School District, two former employees and a current teacher are named in a $2 million federal lawsuit filed in Oregon District Court over the district’s inaction against a bullying first grader. The employees include former principal Marsha Eckelman, former teacher Wren Clark and current teacher Susan Roebber. The suit seeks damages resulting from student misconduct at Sam Case Primary School that occurred three years ago. “It is a situation where one boy, for whatever reason, began to act very inappropriately both sexually and in bullying which threatened other students,” said attorney William Brandt, who represents the five minors who are the plaintiffs in the lawsuit. “The teachers were aware of this behavior and did nothing to stop it.” Brandt claims that as a result of the boy’s behavior, the five minors suffered post-traumatic syndrome, impacting their learning ability and their trust. “The children are still receiving counseling today,” said Brandt.

Bechard to retire, new chief may be named by year’s end Jeremy C. Ruark The News Guard

For the past six and one half years Steven Bechard has been Lincoln City’s top cop. But in mid January Bechard will retire at age 58. He is wrapping up his work with the city this week and reflecting on his accomplishments as Police Chief. “When I first arrived we decided there were a number of things we wanted to accomplish right away,” said Bechard. “We began preparing department policies, a strategic plan and reviewing finances. There were a lot of projects.” Bechard’s first priority was to put in order the department policies. “These policies outlined how we do business and gives direction to our officers that limit risks and liabilities to both the officers and the public.” The most difficult challenge facing Bechard was his limited staff, about 20 employees. “That’s one of the first things I noticed,” he said. “There were a lot of empty positions. It took time to find the right people to fill those vacancies.” Today, the department has 27 sworn officers including the chief, a lieutenant, four sergeants, three detectives, 17 officers, one reserve officer, eight dispatchers, and three support personnel. While Lincoln City doesn’t have the homicide, robbery and assault crimes facing larger cities in Oregon, Bechard said there are other crimes that are consistent. “We do have many thefts, burglaries and vandalism,” he said. “The most common is burglaries at second homes.” Arrests have been made over the years in those crimes and under Bechard’s direction; the department is using a proactive educa-

tional approach engaging homeowners to prevent such crimes. Bechard does remember one specific moment in his career as Police Chief in Lincoln City that he said he would never forget. It was the night officer Steve Dodds was shot in January of 2011. “I just remember I got called at home,” said Bechard. “The information that they gave me was very brief. They told me that Dodds had been shot and was being transported to the hospital. I knew I had to get to the scene and went there first to coordinate the investigation and than I went to the hospital to be with Steve.” While doctors prepared Dodds to be taken by emergency helicopter to a Portland hospital, Bechard was on the phone with Portland Police to have them meet the helicopter at the hospital and with his officers in Lincoln City directing a manhunt for the shooting suspect. As for the future of the Lincoln City Police Department, Bechard is hopeful city officials will continue efforts to build a new department that would provide more space for operations. The two-floor building would be built at the same location of the current police department offering 22,000-square-feet compared to the 8,000-squarefeet at the present building. “There are many legislative and legal changes that mandate that you have more space,” said Bechard. “That’s one reason to build new. The new building has to be earthquake resistant. So we must match legal requirements and meet industry standards. The cost of the new building has been estimated at $7 million. No decisions have been made on how to fund that cost.

Bechard also hopes a plan to consolidate the area dispatch operations is also completed. A process to find a replacement for Bechard began following his announcement August 6 that he would retire. Sixty-seven candidates from all over the West submitted applications for the job. Lincoln City Manager David Hawker said two city committees made up of police professionals and city staff narrowed the list to two finalists. Hawker has selected one of those finalists, but has not yet made public the name of the person selected. “First we will make an offer and if that is accepted we will have the finalist go

though physical and psychological tests and we will do a background check,” said Hawker. Hawker hopes to publicly name the new chief before the end of the year. The base pay range for the position is between $76,325.60 and $97,438.90 annually. Bechard plans to help in the transition. “I will make sure the new chief gets up to speed,” said Bechard. “So I have offered to stick around or come back to help the new person learn the ropes. The most important part of this job will be meeting the citizens and employees to build trusting and effective relationships.”

The things that go bump in the night In cat years, Jake would have been about as old as Methuselah. By human calculations, he lived to be twenty-three. Cats don’t live nearly two dozen years without developing the problem solving skills of a kindergartner and the agility of an Olympic gymnast. Doug’s older son found Jake and his litter mates in a Montana barn. I met the big orange tabby some years later when I began dating my soon-to-be husband, Douglas. The son had left home – Jake had stayed. Doug and Jake had settled into a man and cat routine. Doug’s home was Jake’s kingdom. Over time, reluctant Jake warmed up to me. By the time Doug

ter heater are five wooden shelves where we store things to be out of reach of pets and small children. Jake would climb those shelves and mount one of the garage rafters like a balance beam, strut across it, and enter the attic through a small cat-size opening. We assumed Jake got out of the attic the same way. One night, Doug and I were awakened by a tremendous crashing noise. Only a few months earlier, during a storm, a Douglas fir had fallen on the house and this sound rivaled that one. But this night there was no storm. Both of us being frightened, we jumped out of bed. Doug grabbed the five-cell MagLite®, the clos-

est weapon of self defense, snapped on the bedroom light and together, we stepped into the hall. It seemed clever Jake discovered the human way of getting down from the attic. The professor invented a wooden drop-down ladder. It works in a similar fashion to the ones sold at Home Depot, but this one has a vertical ladder that falls straight down when the door is released. Jake had jumped on the door from inside the attic causing the latch to unhook. The heavyhinged plank had swung down, banging against the hallway wall with all of its weight; the wooden ladder, following the same trajectory, with no human restraint,

slammed full force, into the hardwood floor. When we arrived in the hall to survey the situation, we were just in time to see Jake stretching his orange feline body from rung to rung as he proudly made his attic descent. I’m pretty sure he was thinking; You guys didn’t need to get up. I’ve got everything under control here. Jake may have scared us that night, but soon he was back where he belonged – in our bed, sleeping on Doug’s head. Karen Hessen is a Seaside and Forest Grove resident. She can be reached at

and I married, two and a half years later, Jake would purr loudly while my fingers massaged his aging body through his thick orange coat. There never was any doubt, however, that Jake was Doug’s cat. Doug and Jake’s house, which we still live in, was built by a science professor. It has its idiosyncrasies. Jake’s years of exploring had taught him the way around his domain. At night we could hear him prowling around in the attic over our heads. We had seen his circuitous route into the attic through the garage. First, Jake would jump onto the clothes dryer. From there, he could hop on top of the water heater. Above the wa-

The holiday season is often said to be “the most wonderful time of the year.” People are cheery, gifts are given, and families gather together.  But this special time can quickly turn tragic if proper care is not given to Christmas tree safety. For many people, Christmas trees “make” the holiday.  Unfortunately, they also pose an extreme fire hazard.  It is reported that over a six

year period, Christmas tree fires were the cause of an average of 260 home fires each year. These fires caused an average of 14 deaths, 26 injuries, and $13.8 million in direct property damage. There are steps we can take to help prevent a Christmas tree fire. First, we should always choose a fresh tree.  Select one that has green needles that are difficult to pluck from the branches.  Another sign that we have a live, healthy tree is a bit of sticky sap on the trunk.  Keep the tree healthy and alive by watering it regularly.  As a tree dies, its needles will turn tan and become much more flamma-

ble. When the tree begins to lose a lot of needles, it’s time to properly dispose of it. If you use an artificial tree, make sure that it’s labeled as fire resistant.  If the artificial tree comes with lights already attached, make sure that it has the Underwriters Laboratory (UL) label, which means that it has been tested for safety. If you plan to light your tree yourself, look for the UL label on the package.  Check light strands for broken or cracked sockets, frayed or bare wires, or loose connections.  If the light strand is damaged, do not use it -- it’s not worth the risk.  Ensure you use indoor lights, not

outdoor lights, to decorate your tree. And never use lighted candles on or near your tree. Electrical fires are common during Christmas time. Avoid the tragedy by adhering to common sense rules.  Don’t place the tree near electrical appliances or loose wires.  Don’t overload extension cords with lights.  Each extension cord should support no more than three strands of lights.  Lastly, be sure to turn off all lights on trees and decorations when you go to bed or leave the house. Another tree-related hazard is a tree that falls over.  To avoid this, place your tree

in a low-traffic area so that people don’t push into it. Use a tree stand that is the proper size to support your tree size.  Secure it well into the base before beginning to decorate.  While decorating, always use a step stool or ladder to reach high places.  Many people have knocked their trees over while trying to place the star at the top.  An incident like that can certainly ruin the magic of the moment!

ter gossip club is probably not the best place to get information about legal matters. The only reason I started airing all the dirty laundry at the Center was because I was sick and tired of the Big Wig Bullies harassing seniors—especially me. As to your September meeting, your members do not have a right to ban me from the center, or to have me arrested. The one thing that you and the “clique” don’t seem to understand is that the Senior Center is a public benefit non-profit corporation. It is not a private pinochle/ quilting club. A non-profit corporation has to obey the legal statutes of the State of Oregon. You can’t just go around saying we are going to throw you out or have you arrested because we don’t like you or what you say. If you are interested in knowing what laws you are supposed to be following, go online to the Oregon Corporation Division web site and click on the link for non-profit corporations. There are 73 pages. The penalty for not following those laws is that you lose your non-profit status and the money would be turned over to another non-profit entity. Your board members could also be sued for exceeding their authority under the statutes. Two members have filed complaints with the Oregon Department of Justice. A third is in the process. What part of this don’t you understand?

Voices of Lincoln County Senior Center News

There is good news from the Senior Center despite all the publicity to the contrary. Recently Jan Shields and her board members launched a contest for a logo for the Center. It was open to the public and a local resident, Brianna Hartmann, won the contest. We now have a beautiful logo of a Sand Dollar. A newsletter was also started in November, a very professional printed one, with pictures and articles as well. A Social was held on a Saturday night in November with music, popcorn and soft drinks. Jan and her board are working hard to update the center and make it a welcoming place to come to for all seniors. Let’s give them a chance and help all we can.

Saturday we enjoyed the Angel Ball as our community came together to raise money to assist North Lincoln County families with immediate and basic needs. Sunday found us spellbound by LeAnn Rimes in Christmas concert at Chinook Winds Casino Resort. Monday I truly felt the celebration was over and was meeting with Eric Smileuske, Marketing Director of Chinook Winds Casino Resort, to discuss details on a boxing program. Much to my amazement and grand delight, Eric led me into the convention center to be greeted by 250 wonderful people.

Thanks from Beach Bark

The Beach Bark folks would like to thank all of the many people who participated in the Beach Bark Auction at the Eventuary. When all of the proceeds are collected it will total almost $7,000. For those of you reading who may not know, the Beach Bark is a private fund that has been set up to help people without a lot of financial resources provide critical veterinary care for their pets. This recession has been very hard on animals; but the good news is that we have dispensed over $20,000 worth of free medical care to animals who otherwise would have had to go without treatment. This seven thousand dollars will get us through to our next event on the first Sunday in March, which is the Spayghetti and No Balls dinner held at the Eventuary.

coach Lissa Parker, who has established one of the city’s most productive feeder programs with her involvement as longtime coach of the Lincoln City Swim Club. Developing interest, increasing participation and building success at a school that has struggled against more populated Class 4A schools is not only under review, but gaining momentum, fellow Taft coaches said. “Middle school sports are vital to the success of the high school sports programs,” boys basketball coach Mark Williams said. “My program works very hard to fund and create opportunities for our middleschoolers. But after all of our efforts, I would say that we are only making up for what the kids have lost by not having middle school sports.” Williams is among the many concerned coaches who emphasize there is much more involved than merely creating a winning atmosphere. Longtime youth coach Earl Lahti has two sons at Taft High who starred in community sports as seventh- and eighth-graders but missed playing schoolintegrated sports. “The academic benefits would be immediate,” Lahti said. “To this point in time,

age of the resource. Coastwide crab quality testing showed some test areas did not meet minimum preseason test criteria. Fishery managers met Dec. 10 and decided to further delay the opening through Dec. 30 to allow crab quality to improve. The opening of the ocean commercial Dungeness crab season from Point Arena, Calif., north was first delayed through Dec.

the players have just been called ‘athletes’ or ‘players.’ If the junior high sports are run though the school, the ‘players’ become ‘studentathletes.’” Lahti points out that under the present system, players can have poor grades, attendance or behavioral issues and still be able to participate in athletics. “I know that some coaches have tried to enforce some sort of rules in these areas,” he said, “but there is no consistency for the parents or the players as they move from sport to sport and coach to coach.” Players then enter high school unaccustomed to the standards, he said. Some don’t fare well and struggle to stay eligible. “If we can get them on board much earlier, they will truly become ‘studentathletes,’” he said. “Another great benefit for our sports programs would be that the high school varsity coaches would have a much clearer path to the junior high programs,” Lahti said. “The high school coaches will be more apt to get players ready to contribute.” Some coaches, such as cross country’s Rebecca Dressler, have had the foresight to recognize the importance of including middle

15 to allow crab quality to improve. In Oregon, crabbers will be allowed to begin setting their gear in the ocean for a gear pre-soaking period starting at 8:01 a.m. on Dec. 28 and start harvesting crab at 12:01 a.m. on Dec. 31. Recreational harvest of crab in the ocean and in Oregon’s bays will remain open.

school students in their programs. For example, her team staged a fun relay race for the prospective athletes. “Overall, the race was a success and the middle school runners felt more comfortable around the high school runners,” she said. “And, I was given a chance to get to know the runners and connect with them before high school.” Lahti said he thinks adding the programs would also boost school spirit and community pride as the teams enjoy greater success. “The idea of representing your school builds pride,” he said. “We have many fantastic parents that have been very involved with all of our youth sports programs. Without their involvement, who knows if we would even have the programs we have. Just think about how much stronger our school athletic programs, both junior high and high school, would be with the fresh energy these parents could bring.” Greater familiarity with the competition also would be accomplished, Lahti said. “I envision us playing teams we would be competing against once the teams enter high school,” he said. Coaches, especially, are quick to point out that other cities do as much in providing sports and other extra-

residents since the Board chose not to renew the water service agreement (with Lincoln City) and chose not to develop an alternative water source. I believe we, the City Council, are obligated to protect the interests of our constituents. Continuing to ignore an expired contract while providing services that were previously contracted for is irresponsible on our part and unfair to city residents.” Read the full statement made by Councilor Noreikis at Mayor Dick Anderson commented that many people that testified before the council concerning the annexation did so with passion. “But with blind spots,” said Anderson. “The testimony was very cordial. I feel a good deal of respect for

curricular opportunities as Lincoln City and also have middle school sports. “It is paramount to reach out to the middle school sports in order to continue to build our high school programs,” Dressler said. “To compete at the high school level, athletes need to be training and learning early on.” To get started, Joy said a fundraiser is in the planning stages to help with startup costs. Once in place, she said public service announcements and advertising would be implemented. “All the costs associated with middle school sports is being looked at,” she said. “Along with startup costs, we also will need to have a plan in place for who will pick up the costs in the future, whether it be boosters or the school district. With the shortage of school funding over the last few years, we need to make sure it is a viable plan for the future.” Joy said startup costs include uniforms, equipment, transportation, insurance, officials and coaches. She said initial efforts will likely center around football and volleyball. There would be a participation fee that would cover part of the cost, she said, and existing equipment and uniforms would be used and


these people.” But Anderson was also critical of the process. “This could have been handled quite differently and should have from the beginning,” he said. “We need to quit putting off unpopular decisions. That’s what this council is doing.” The annexation ordinance adopted by the council would take effect July 1, 2013. It includes a provision to ramp up property and sewer bond taxes at 70 percent July 1, 2013, 85 percent July 1, 2014 and 100 percent by July 1, 2015. Councilor Roger Sprague called the phase-in of taxes fair. “I believe that will make it easier for some of these people,” he said. Lincoln City Manager David Hawker said the process was critical. “The city doesn’t want to go into the hole with this

annexation,” he told the council. During public hearings before the Lincoln City Planning Commission and the city council in November, dozens of Roads End residents expressed opposition to what many called “hostage annexation” and who called for a public vote on the annexation issue. Many of those opposing annexation expressed concerns about higher taxes. Others said the city failed to prove the consents to annex used in the process through the double majority were valid and the annexation would be illegal and flawed. One man left the hearing and shouted “Dictator,” as he exited the council chambers. City officials expect legal action against the annexation and have said the final decision will likely be made by the courts.

passed down from varsity through the junior varsity to the middle school ranks. She said ways to stretch the Booster’s budget are being explored and that additional costs over and above the club’s annual funding must be examined. Williams said he has found the community to be extremely supportive of efforts to promote — and

expand — his program through investment of time and money. “I look forward to the day when those opportunities get Taft student-athletes ahead, instead of just catching them up,” he said. “The support for middle school sports is definitely there. We just need to make it happen.”

County gets federal funds for food, shelter programs Lincoln County has been chosen to receive $22,348 to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county during 2012. The selection was made by a National Board that is chaired by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency and consists of representatives from American Red Cross; Catholic Charities, USA, National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA, The Jewish Federations of North America, The Salvation Army, and United Way Worldwide. The Local Board was charged to distribute funds

appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in high-need areas around the country. A Local Board, made up of representatives of the above organizations, will determine how the funds awarded to Lincoln County are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service agencies in the area. Under the terms of the grant from the National Board, local agencies chosen to receive funds must: 1) be private voluntary non-profits or units of government, 2) be eligible to receive federal funds,

3) have an accounting system, 4) practice nondiscrimination, 5) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs, and 6) if they are a private voluntary organization, they must have a voluntary board. Qualifying agencies are urged to apply. Applications can be found on the United Way website at or at http://bit. ly/EFSPLincoln.  The application deadline is noon on December 14.  If you have any questions please call Andrea Arzner at 541757-7717.    

Highway 20 repairs complete Emergency road repairs to U.S. Highway 20 (Corvallis-Newport Highway) have been completed ahead of schedule by an Oregon Department of Transportation contractor. The work was done approximately six miles west of

Eddyville in Lincoln County. A section of road foundation eroded earlier this month, sending part of the highway shoulder into the Yaquina River. The contractor, Road and Driveway Company of Newport, was awarded the

low-bid contract of $48,470 to make the repairs. The project was expected to take three days to complete but the contractor finished in less than two days. ODOT crews were to have completed asphalt repairs and erosion control. Dallas Mortuary Tribute Center is caring for the family.

to obtain employment and while there, she met Elmo Francis “Saint” St. Clair, who was serving in the United States Navy. They were married on June 1, 1946, at Longview, Washington. They settled in Taft, Oregon, and started what became a very successful carpet, linoleum and tile business called Custom Craft. Saint was very talented at what he did and Melba kept the store and did the book work. They were a very good team. They bought a very small home and over the years built it into a very lovely larger home, doing the designing and work themselves. They would remain there for over 60 years where they raised their two children, Dee Ann and Dennis. They were very active in the community and Saint served as volunteer Fire Chief for many years. Saint passed away in September of 2008 and Melba went to Maple Valley, Washington to live with her daughter Dee Ann Chamberlin. By this time Melba was suffering from Alzheimer’s and after the unfortunate passing of her daughter, moved to Prestige Park Adult Home, where she received excellent care until her passing. Melba was a very tal-

ented pianist and loved all kinds of music. She was an excellent homemaker and cook and loved having extended family and friends in for holidays and celebrations. We enjoyed many wonderful meals at their home. As a couple, Melba and Saint enjoyed going deer hunting, mostly into central Oregon and did that every Fall for many years. They made many trips to Eastern Oregon to visit family and friends in Union and Joseph and loved fishing the beautiful streams there. Melba is survived by her son Dennis (Karen) St. Clair of Lebanon, Oregon; two granddaughters, Deborah (Jonathan) Price of Spokane, Washington and Ginger (Paul) Soule of Buckley, Washington; a grandson, Scott St. Clair (Josie) of Salem; and three great-grandchildren; a sister, Wanda Orton of Auburn, Washington; and a sister-in-law, Bonnie Deneke of Portland; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Elmo Francis “Saint” St. Clair; her parents David and Twila Johansen; a daughter, Dee Ann Chamberlin and her brother, David “Swede” Johansen. Melba will be greatly missed by all she

OSP warns of grandparent scam Oregon State Police (OSP) is warning Oregon families about scammers who pose as grandchildren claiming to be in trouble and needing money immediately. Two known recent incidents in eastern Oregon, as well as past incidents reported to the Oregon Department of Justice’s Consumer Protection Hotline, are causing concern that others may receive calls about the “emergency scam,” also known as the “grandparent scam.” The scam targets grandparents with fake stories about family members stranded in Canada or overseas in urgent need of money. The emergency scam usually goes something like this: “Hi grandma, it’s me, your favorite grandkid. I am up in Canada right now with my good friend John. Please don’t tell Mom and Dad, but I had an accident (or was arrested) and need money to get out of jail. John and I are in a little trouble and need your help. We hit a car and needed to hire an attorney. Can you please wire me $4,700 so I can pay my attorney and come home? Please don’t tell Mom and Dad! I promise to pay you back when I get home!” An OSP detective investigating one of these cases found that the imposter will go through newspaper anniversary announcements and obituaries where they may find names of an entire family.

distance and with less personal interaction with the renters. The ubiquity of computers greatly simplified the business end of owning a VRD from afar. As VRDs proliferated, renters and full-time residents began to have conflicts over noise, parking and garbage among other things. Birke also writes that the addition to Lincoln City of larger concerts and largescale entertainment brought more late-night activity to some neighborhoods than had existed in years past, and late night noise complaints became more common. On several occasions over a span of years, in response to public complaints about a wide variety

research using white pages or Internet search engines (i.e., Google) for a phone number leads to the placement of these scam phone calls. There are several red flags that indicate a scammer is at work. Be wary of a caller who: • Requests that money be wired in a very short time frame; • Claims to be stuck in a foreign country; • Insists on secrecy; and/or • Gets some personal details wrong. Scammers prey on the emotions of grandparents wanting to help their grandchildren. This is a despicable scam, conducted by

con artists in the U.S. and other countries. Before wiring money, grandparents should independently call and confirm the whereabouts of their family members. Be highly skeptical of any phone request for money wires and don’t fall prey to the pressures placed by the caller. Ask personal questions to the callers to confirm their identity, about such things as schools attended, pet names, presents given or received, or names of other family members. Oregonians who think they have been a victim of the “grandparent scam” should call the Oregon Attorney General Consumer

of problems, the City added requirements to the VRD ordinances including a mandatory local contact, inspections, landscaping requirements and more. But Birke also writes that despite the increasing regulations, the VRD permit numbers rose promoting concerns from residents who desired to live in “pure” residential neighborhoods. Many expressed displeasure that their neighborhood included what they called “house-tels.” Concern from local motel operators over the vacation rentals in Lincoln City was also rising. As the VRDs increased, the motel operators began to notice a decline in revenues. The report outlines how the city attempted to control the number of VRDs, but Birke writes that citizens

rejected such control. City officials began to discuss a proposed moratorium of the VRDs, but that met opposition from those in the rental industry and others who argued that the moratorium would hinder the Lincoln City tourism industry. Birke said the city’s efforts to minimize concerns with VRDs have helped, but the economy has played a greater role in the growth of the rentals. According to Birke, the hot points over the rentals were in 2003 – 2008. But the change in the U.S. economy and the housing market made such investments less attractive.

Hotline at 1-877-877-9392 ( and the Federal Trade Commission at 1-800-FTC-HELP ( When in doubt, and BEFORE YOU SEND ANY MONEY, contact the State Department’s Office of Overseas Citizens Services (OCS) at 1-888-407-4747.

“During the housing bubble many people were investing in coastal property,” said Birke. “When the bubble burst it stabilized the market. What made the conversation easier was the quantity had been stabilized. City officials got a sense of what they were dealing with and they were able to get most VRD owners to comply with the city regulations.” But concerns over the vacation rentals continued prompting the city council to explore the use of an outside facilitator to try to bring interested parties together to explore solutions. That effort led to the de-

Kitzhaber calls for special session Dec. 14 The Oregon Legislature will meet in Special Session on Friday, Dec. 14, to consider authorizing Governor Kitzhaber to enter into agreements with companies committing to significant job growth and investment in Oregon. The Governor called the session at a news conference Dec. 10 where he emphasized an extraordinary opportunity exists to boost Oregon’s economy with high wage jobs. “With legislative action this week, Oregon can secure high wage jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars of new private investment in the next five years,” Kitzhaber said. “In fact, Nike is ready to commit to a significant expansion of its Oregon operations if the state can provide certainty we won’t change tax rules after they make a new investment. It’s an easy call and a perfect fit with our strategy to attract and retain companies that create jobs and boost per capita income.” The Economic Impact Investment Act would allow the Governor to enter into qualifying investment contracts with any company committing to a minimum of 500 jobs and $150 million in capital investment over five years. The Act creates a new economic development tool and has no fiscal impact on the state. Nike would expand to accommodate current and

future job growth. Nike’s employment in Oregon has grown 60 percent since 2007 with an average annual compensation of over $100,000, about double state and regional averages. A recent analysis by AECOM, a global Governor professional Kitzhaber services firm, estimates the economic impact of a potential expansion to be more than $2 billion a year and more than 12,000 jobs by 2020 (direct, indirect and induced). Construction alone accounts for about $440 million and more than 2,900 jobs. “Private sector job growth is driving Oregon’s economic recovery, but state government has an important role to play in helping create a business climate to accelerate that growth,” said Ryan Deckert, Oregon Business Association president. “We’ve been focused on finding ways to boost wages, and the Economic Impact Investment Act will be a powerful tool to drive per capita income up in Oregon.” Governor Kitzhaber is convening the special session under his authority pursuant to section 12, Article V of the Oregon Constitution.

velopment of the Consensus Project Report. “The most significant element of this report is that the VRDs should be located within a defined zone,” said Birke. “That is the most important thing. The report outlines a number of recommendations including where the VRD can be located, who can own the rentals, how many can be owned, how to deal with noise, traffic, garbage and how to minimize conflicts. The report also addresses enforcement. “The City should take steps to promote full enforcement of all rules re-

garding parking, landscaping, and similar issues in an even-handed manner and with some assurance that all levels of enforcement are on the same page.” Birke said the report represents a wide variety of opinions from community members. “We had people from every side of the issue,” he said. “This is a model of democracy in action.” The Lincoln City Council has scheduled a workshop for Jan. 22 to review the VRD Consensus Report.

Tigers fall just short in loss to Astoria

Japan comes to Neskowin Valley

JIM FOSSUM The News Guard

Neskowin Valley School students got an up close and personal lesson about contemporary Japan through hands-on activities in a program called Japan on the Road. Members of the Japan-America Society of Oregon brought many items representing Japanese culture to the school, and students found out more about Japan as they wrote Japanese characters, picked up popcorn with chopsticks and imitated language and manners from present-day Japan. Students from second to seventh grades learned about Japan’s geographic location and resources and the history of its ancient culture. They practiced the respectful use of the words “sensei” and “san” in addressing teachers and principal, a change from NVS’s legacy of calling faculty and staff by their first names. The older students, who have been studying Mandarin Chinese with their teacher Amy Henderson, recognized some of the kanji (characters) as they practiced writing their names in Japanese. NVS kindergartners and first graders gathered around a huge kite in the shape of a fish and tried on a Japanese backpack with Sheryl Fuller, the director of the program, Keiko Nakata and Harumi Marshall, their Japanese teachers. They heard a Japanese folktale, imagined riding a bullet train and hiking up Mt. Fuji, and learned about food they might eat if they were Japanese schoolchildren. “I was really impressed with your program and the young people we met,” said Fuller. Your kids are so open and so involved.” Julie Fiedler, Head of School, invited Japan on the Road to NVS as part of the school’s social studies curriculum on world history, language and culture. The Youngers class will be demonstrating Japanese winter holiday traditions at the annual NVS Festival of Lights on Dec. 21 at 10 a.m. The pubic is invited to the Festival, which will feature festivals from around the world.

Excuse Taft boys basketball coach Mark Williams if he feels a little perplexed trying to figure out what team he is sending out on the court this season. Is it the one that unraveled on both ends of the floor in a 20-3 fourth-quarter collapse in losing to Class 4A Banks 61-45 at home on Nov. 28 in the season opener; the one that lost 49-40 at Class 2A Waldport on Dec, 4; or the one that fell aimlessly astray but then regained its wits in coming up just short, 83-81at home to fellow Class 4A member Astoria on Friday, Dec.7? With eight games in an 11-day stretch starting Wednesday, Dec. 12, at Class 4A Sweet Home, he’s about to find out. “We played our best game of the short season and maybe gained some much needed confidence going into a very tough stretch in our schedule,” said Williams, whose Tigers fell to 0-3 with the loss to the Fishermen. Tyler Lopez led Taft in scoring against Astoria of the Cowapa Conference with 18 points, while fellow senior guard Keanu Eastman had 17, Junior forward Ian Williams had 15 points on five 3-pointers, while senior guard Brent Martin had nine points seven rebounds and five assists. “Our energy and effort were very good,” Williams said. “We were outrebounded by a large margin and had one four-minute stretch in the fourth quarter where we lost our composure. We regained our composure, hit some free throws, and took better care of the ball over the last four minutes.” Following Wednesday’s road game against Sweet Home of the Sky-Em Conference, the Tigers will compete in the Phoenix Invitational over the weekend, and will meet Waldport at 7 p.m. at home on Monday, Dec. 17.

Tiger swimmers get boost from team rookies JIM FOSSUM The News Guard

The Taft High swim team got its customary top showings from two senior swimmers, but it has been the beginners who have made the biggest impression on longtime coach Lissa Parker in the early stages of the 2012-13 season. While Marlee Garding and Destiny Zook each won two events to lead the way for the Tigers in a three-way meet at the Newport YMCA on Tuesday, Dec. 4, it was their younger upstart teammates who are new to competitive waters that caught Parker’s attention. “Overall, I’m most impressed with the novices, especially [junior] Eli Shott and [freshmen] Katie McCardell and BillyAnn Stempel,” she said. “They’re making fast progress.” Shott, 17, shaved considerable time from his previous best clocking to place third in both the 100-yard breaststroke and freestyle;

Stempel, 15, improved her times in placing fourth and fifth, respectively, in the 50 and 100 free; and McCardell, 15, duplicated Stempel’s feat by shaving time off her personal-best showings with sixth and seventh-place finishes in the same two events. Parker also cited freshman Madison Garding, 14, who won the girls 200 free and finished second in the 100 breast. Parker said sophomore Shawna Harskjold, 15, has been a key factor in the 500yard freestyle, where she placed fifth. Senior Kassie Gile, 18, was third in the 100 fly and fourth in the 500 free, an event Parker loaded with swimmers to help ensure victory over Philomath. As anticipated, Marlee Garding, 17, won the 500 free and 100 fly, while Zook, 17, won the 100 breast and the 200 individual medley. The tandem led the way for the Tigers, who won the girls’ portion of the meet

with 83 points. Philomath was second with 53, followed by Newport with 46. Senior Brittney Knight, 17, also claimed victory for the Taft girls in winning the 100-yard backstroke. Knight was third in the 200 free, while sophomore Averi Affeld-Anderson, 15, was third in both the 100 breast and 200 IM. The girls’ 200 medley relay team of Knight (back), Zook (breast), Garding (fly) and Stempel (free), and 400 free relay team of Marlee Garding, Knight, Madison Garding and Zook also were victorious. The boys team, hampered by the absence of junior Kody Van Damme, who was sick, and freshman Dylan Mickelson, who was catching up on schoolwork, scored 39 points to finish behind Newport with 88 and

Philomath with 55. “The boys need some more time and experience, but their relays rocked,” Parker said. “And, the 200 free relay for boys [Justin Delfin, Shawn Howell, Cammeron Kelso and Shott] shows great promise.” Parker said swimmers such as Howell have been solid additions to the Tigers this season. She said others also showed promise and should become key contributors once they get up to speed on their turns. Fifteen of Taft’s 20 entrants in the meet contributed to the scoring. Taft returns to the pool Tuesday, Dec. 18, for a fourway meet at Seaside before hosting back-to-back meets at the Lincoln City Community Center on Saturday, Dec. 29, and Tuesday, Jan. 8.

Tigers take nonleague win against Waldport The good news for girls basketball coach Dan Mock is that his next victory will give the Tigers their best season in his three years as Taft coach. The bad news is it will be just the Tigers’ second victory of the season, but Mock knows as well as anyone you must crawl before you walk. Taft held host Waldport of the Class 2A Tri-Valley Conference under 10 points in each quarter and defeated the Irish 36-20 on Tuesday, Dec. 4, for its first victory since early last year, “I’m certainly happy to come away from Waldport with a win,” Mock said. The Tigers, leading 16-7 at halftime following a sluggish opening quarter by both teams offensively, outscored the Irish by three points in each of the final two periods to emerge with the victory. Senior wing Jessie Wisniewski, as she did time and again last season, paced the Tigers with 12 points, while Hannah Houck led Waldport with five. “It was a very balanced effort,” said Mock, who had seven players contribute in the scoring column. Taft was propelled by junior post player Keitra Mason, an all-league catcher in softball who forced play to the outside with her presence underneath. “She had a tremendous impact on the game for us

in terms of rebounding and drawing fouls,” Mock said. With Wisniewski powering the offense and Mason working down low, Taft gradually took control of a sluggish game early. “Both teams were stagnant on offense during the first quarter, but the scoring opened up for us a bit as we extended our defense and forced some turnovers,” Mock said. “Scoring points off of the other team’s miscues is a point of emphasis for us, and it is something we need to continue to get better at.” Taft failed to fair as well in another nonleague game Friday, Dec. 7, however. The Tigers, with an experienced roster that includes seven seniors who have had to endure successive 1-22 seasons with their lone victories coming over Class 1A Siletz Valley, fell 47-28 to Class 4A Astoria at home on Friday, Dec. 7. The Tigers, trailing 18-11 at halftime, were outscored 29-17 in the second half against the Fishermen of the Cowapa Conference despite a team-leading 10 points from junior wing Taylor Adams. Kiera Olson led the Fishermen with 17 points. “I feel the way this game played out revealed a lot about where we are at as a team and what we need to work on going forward to improve,” Mock said. If not for eight missed free throws in the first three quarters, the Tigers played the Fishermen fairly evenly,


Taft senior point guard Karli Martin leads the Tigers’ offensive attack during a 47-28 home defeat to Astoria on Friday, Dec. 7. he said. “All of this despite having a starter [senior post Alexa Taunton] fight through a pretty sore ankle, being at a height disadvantage, having a lousy shooting night and not executing a number of


our offensive possessions the way they are designed to be run,” he said. “All of those things put us at a disadvantage. Fortunately, we can improve in most of those categories, and I expect that we will.”

Danyel Scott, instrumental in starting the first girls soccer program at Taft High 7-12, has resigned after four seasons as coach for personal reasons. Scott, whose tenure coincided with the playing career of her daughter — graduating all-league senior midfielder and team tricaptain Alexandria Scott — went 8-29-4 with the Tigers, including 1-8-2 this season. “I appreciate Danyel’s investment in our students and our track and soccer programs,” Taft Principal Scott Reed said. “She’s put a lot of personal time and effort and energy in helping to bring girls soccer to Taft High School.”

Dessert and the weather report Mixed Grill

By Everett Cutter


t happened in mid-December, many years ago when the children were young. Sally busied herself fixing holiday treats in our small kitchen, while some neighborhood kids joined ours outside, shooting hoops in our driveway. In the midst of Sally’s Christmas music, the radio startled her by reporting a temperature of 31 degrees “You kids get in here right now,” she called. “You are not dressed for the cold.” “Aw, Mom, it’s not cold.” “Gol, Mom, we’re really hot playing.” Nonetheless, they were bundled for freezing and sent back out to join their friends, attempting to shoot baskets while wearing four layers of warm clothing. Mom resumed her kitchen tasks and enjoying Yuletide music. Suddenly, Karen Carpenter stopped singing mid-phrase in her carol … as the tape ended. The tape Sally had recorded in a previous year in order to play Christmas music all month long after Thanksgiving. Sheepishly, she checked the outdoor thermometer: 53 degrees F. in our driveway at that moment. “Oh, kids!” She herded them all inside without another word, removed some excess clothing, and gave them all Popsicles. Then Sally resumed making her…

Valerie Kendall, who wrote “Destiny,” an adaptation of “A Tale of Three Trees” along with her husband, John, leads kids in practice for their production of a children’s show that will lead off a holiday season production this weekend at the Lincoln City Cultural Center.

Kids Sing Out in Christmas production Jim Fossum The News Guard


wo shows in one — by and for people of all ages to touch hearts and promote Christmas spirit — will take center stage when children and adults gather this weekend at the Lincoln City Cultural Center to enliven the holiday season. A children’s production — “A Light’s Blink’n, Bell Ring’n, Sweet Dream’n, Carol Sing’n Christmas,” is part of the fall workshop “Kids Sing Out,” and will be presented by children in fourth through eighth grade. The more spiritual adult presentation “Destiny” will take the stage immediately following the half-hour children’s presentation. “There will be a really wide variety of musical styles,” coproducer and program director Valerie Kendall said. “There are contemporary songs, some traditional songs, just a wide variety of styles.” The shows, which are intended to function in conjunction with one another, will be held at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14, and Saturday, Dec. 15, and at 3 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 16, at the Cultural Center, 540 N.E. Highway 101. Kendall, the artistic director, has blended a wide array of music while working with Nicole O’Brien of Ballet and Dance of Lincoln City in producing the program. “Since Kids Sing Out [KSO] is a performance workshop, there will be more than just vocals,” Kendall said. “Kids learn to express themselves in movement as well.” The participants in the KSO performance are Angelina Ber-

lingeri, Haley Callin, Winter Callin, Fiona Eyman, Dylan Myers, Rowan Myers, Avery Nightingale, Margery Price, Alyson Pringle, Delpheen Kimbrough, Chloe Kay Stroud, Corey Van Damme and Juliette Vold. The children anxiously shared their thoughts on why they decided to participate in the production, “It feels like it’s a part of me,” Van Damme said of performing “Reggae Christmas.” “Mary’s Boy Child,” has an awesome rhythm, according to Delpheen Kimbrough. Dylan Myers said she is amazed that she can learn songs as different in nature as “Reggae Christmas and Silent Night.” “We have a lot of fun, but we still do a lot of work,” Haley Callin said. “KSO gives kids a chance to really feel a part of something,” her sister, Winter, said “We’ve worked really hard and people should know who we are and what we do,” Marjorie Price said. Meanwhile, “Destiny,” a short musical written by Valerie and her husband, John, for Christmas, will cap the production. Characters in the adaptation of the classic American children’s story “A Tale of Three Trees,” are the trees, three woodcutters, a Christmas Mary and Joseph. It is a metaphorical story of young trees that long to know their destiny. The trees are Anna Morgan, Joshua Morgan and Julie Bradley. John Nightingale, Brandt England and Tye England play their woodcutter rivals. Joseph is played by Stan Michaelson and Mary by

Fourth through eighth grade children practice choreography for their show as part of the fall “Kids Sing Out” workshop program. Kelli Westmark. “We have some outstanding singers, and some who are quite well known in town,” Kendall said. “It’s a multi-layered, short musical that adults will understand the deeper, inner meanings of, and children will enjoy because the costumes are wonderful. There’s definitely a Christian theme to it.” Iovanny Perez, a popular fixture in Portland salsa bands, worked with the Kendalls on the orchestrations. Stage direction, stage design, lighting design, and technical direction are provided by John, while Valerie does the musical direction. The costumers are Judy Allen and Jerry Corbin. “At the end of ‘Destiny,’ the children will return to the stage for a huge finale,” Valerie said. “We’ll bring the ballerinas back on

stage, there will be a candlelight moment and a wrap-up with 30 pair of hands doing sign language, so it’s really going to be an incredible meaningful program putting the heart back into Christmas.” Destiny is produced by “Flying Fish Productions,” which is sponsored by the First Baptist Church of Lincoln City, which is underwriting the production. Tickets are $5 in advance and $7 at the door and are on sale through the Cultural Center by calling 541-994-9994. A portion of each ticket sold will help launch the homeless shelter project Family Promise of Lincoln County and support the Cultural Center. Attendees also are encouraged to bring two nonperishable items for the Lincoln City Food Pantry.

Chocolate sampling to benefit RSVP

Local musician Bret Lucich (shown at left) performed his original song “One Hero at a Time” at the free event at PUTT N BAT for military, veterans and their families on Nov. 14, right after leading the crowd in “God Bless America.” All branches of the military were represented at the event as the kids, young parents and older veterans who swapped stories, hit the batting cages, played miniature golf and video games. Gallucci’s Pizza donated all the pizza and even brought over a pizza warmer to keep the pizza hot. “The event was a huge success,” said Pastor Kelli Westmark who helped to coordinate the event, “and could not have happened without all the community support.”
