The case against Acosta became complicated when the victim, and her father, died in an unrelated car crash prior to trial. As a result of the Lopers’ tragic death, some charges had to be dismissed.

Tsunami workshop brings We won’t be undersold — Get to Lincoln City a sobering message not to forget By JEREMY C. RUARK The News Guard

Asunori Nagayama has a sober warning for Oregon coast residents: Do not forget the Japan earthquake and tsunami of 2011. Nagayama was one of several residents of the area struck by the Japan earthquake and tsunami in 2011 who took part in an all-day conference in Lincoln City on Feb. 16 at the Chinook Winds Casino Resort. “People not only lost their JEREMY C.

With the speculation about the long-term viability of social security, it is not surprising many Americans run the risk of outliving their retirement savings. A hundred years ago, average life expectancy was a little over 51 years of age. Today, that average has increased to over 78 years. However, according to the Office for National Statistics, the number of centenarians is predicted to rise to almost a half million by the year 2050. Since 1934, retirement income was expected to come from a combination of three sources: corporate paid pension, social security and personal savings. But over the past 35 years the number of employ-

ers that offer traditional pension programs has dropped. Opting instead to place more of the burden for retirement on the shoulders of their workers, many companies offer employees 401(k) and other qualified retirement plans that require the majority of contributions to be made by the employees. What can you do to guard against fiscal misfortune as you age? Consider working longer. An additional three to five years working provides the opportunity to reduce outstanding debt and sock away additional retirement savings, sometimes significant amounts. While working longer, avoid the temptation to begin receiving social security benefits. Every year benefits are delayed, up to age 70, increases the monthly payment by approximately 8 percent. By waiting until age 70 to collect benefits, instead of collecting at age 62, you will increase your monthly benefits by 64

percent. Living longer sounds great but the trade-off of reduced mortality is increased morbidity, or disease. Americans are living longer but not without health concerns. Today, a couple aged 65, has a 50 percent chance that at least one of them will require long-term care before dying. Unless relatives provide that care, retirement savings can be quickly depleted. The 2012 Genworth Cost of Care Survey analyzes the nationwide cost Home Care Providers, Adult Day Health Care Facilities, Assisted Living Facilities and Nursing Homes. Following are the median rates for care in Oregon: $20 hourly for licensed Homemaker Services; $21 hourly for licensed Home Health Aide Services; $97 daily for Adult Day Health Care; $3,850 monthly at Assisted Living Facilities for one bedroom, single occupancy; $225 per day for semi-private room Nursing Home and $250

daily for private room Nursing Home. As you can imagine, a nursing home can easily cost in excess of $150,000 for an average two-year stay. Purchase long-term care insurance. Not only is a portion of the premium tax deductible but Oregon is also a “Partnership” state. For each dollar of longterm care costs provided by insurance, Oregon exempts one dollar of personal assets from the Medicaid spend-down rules. This bestows a policyholder with two valuable means of preserving assets. An old rule of thumb was to deplete retirement savings by no more than 5 percent annually. Unfortunately, that is no longer true. Current estimates shrink that annual figure to only 3-4 percent. Another method, developed by Phil Lubinski of Denver, is to divide retirement into 5-year segments. Remove all market exposure from money needed during

the first 10 years of retirement and use fixed income products to provide a guaranteed income during those years. To hedge against inflation, invest the remaining funds in a graduated range of low, moderate and aggressive risk mutual funds, variable annuity or managed money portfolios. Restrict aggressive investments to less than 14 percent of assets. With proper planning, a long, financially comfortable retirement can become a reality.

My Opinion: Rural-coastal hospital at risk, again Guest Column by Gordon “Mick” McLean

We’re in the midst of my third Health Reform tsunami. In my opinion, current health reform efforts are necessary, yet they always have unintended consequences and seem to affect rural and coastal hospitals first and worst. I was there when the Nixon Administration took a run at Federal Health Reform. Congress passed the Federal Health Care Planning Law in 1975. The premise was that community-based participation

riods. Again, these efforts were torpedoed. In addition, Medicare payments to hospitals were cut for five years to help with the greater urgency at that time, National debt reduction. Many rural-coastal hospitals were at great risk. Nine Oregon rural-coastal hospitals closed during this period, including St. Helens, Toledo, and one in Pendleton. Alarmed and recognizing the essential role of ruralcoastal hospitals, Congress created a “Critical Access Hospital” category for those meeting geographic and population-served criteria.

These community hospitals are deemed essential for emergency and primary care in local communities as well as treat, stabilize, and transfer to a higher level of care. Many States, including Oregon, also recognized Critical Access Hospitals and joined Medicare in providing “cost-plus” reimbursement for Medicaid patients. Although neither covers the full costs of a service provided, Medicare and Medicaid cost-plus payment for services is critical for remote rural-coastal hospitals. Today, rural-coastal

hospitals are, once again, at risk. In the face of comprehensive Health Reform efforts at the State and National level and a National Debt Debate, Washington State took a hard run at eliminating CAH funding for State patients last year and had Congress not acted at Midnight, the cost-plus payments for Medicare patients would have stopped As you follow Health Reform and Debt Reduction conversations, be aware of how unintended consequences can affect more than the ability to see the doctor of our choice.

Thank you Sheriff Dotson

Respects Sheriff Dotson’s Position

Thank you Sheriff Dotson for standing up in support of our natural god given rights to defend ourselves from criminals, psychopaths and government tyranny. Sheriff Dotson should be commended for supporting the all important 2nd Amendment. Our ingenious forefathers said gun rights “shall not be infringed” in order to make sure the Constitution remains intact. Sheriff Dotson, when taking office, promised the citizens of Lincoln County that he will defend the Constitution above all other laws. Thank God for stand up patriots like Sheriff Dotson! Remember, America is still a nation of laws, not men. Linn County Sheriff Tim Mueller also got it right when he recently said quote “We are Americans, we must not allow, nor should we tolerate the actions of criminals, no matter how heinous the crimes, to prompt politicians to enact laws that will infringe upon the liberties of responsible citizens who have broken no laws.” Make no mistake. Gun control is not about guns, it’s about CONTROL. By the way, what are Lincoln County Schools do-

I see from last week’s “Letters to the Editor” that a few people are upset by Dennis Dotson’s decision to not enforce the federal gun regulations banning assault weapons. I respect Dennis Dotson’s position as sheriff and his years of experience with guns and criminals. He knows more about the subject than I because he lives it every day as a job. Most of us will never in our lifetime come into contact with guns or angry people with guns. All we will know will come from multiple sources; books, magazines, movies, radio, TV and newspapers. Those sources may not be a complete picture. I know a gun is an inanimate object. Fully loaded and laying on your dining room table for years, it is incapable of killing anyone. Someone very young and uneducated in gun safety or someone suffering from anger or mental illness issues can make that gun a killing weapon. Off the cuff, I would say over 75% of mass murders, not excluding war, are committed by someone needing mental health attention. Why are we not all heated up about that? Why are not both sides

brainstorming solutions to heal sick souls and minds? Take their guns away and they will still be sick. They will find another way to alleviate their pain. Maybe poison, maybe bombs. Does it really matter? Heal the people to stop the killing and then maybe we can grow flowers out of the barrels of our guns. Bev Wilkinson Portland

and decision-making would achieve the three constant goals; reduce costs, improve quality, and increase access. Some good ideas were torpedoed and others rejected. This was replaced by “Reagonomics.” The premise was that free market competition would “raise all boats” and, for hospitals, this premise also ran its course. Both Washington State and Oregon led the nation with the second major wave of Health Reform driven by the Clinton administration. Our two States passed comprehensive health reform models in the 1993-94 pe-

Voices of Lincoln County Thanks from Jim and Diane We would like to say thank you to the community for helping us hold a successful Dancing with the Local Stars fundraiser on Jan. 26. Both Relay For Life and the Lincoln City Cultural Center benefited from this event. Our sponsors included Chinook Winds Casino Resort, Mo’s, My Petite Sweet, Nelscott Wine Shop and Strung Out on Beads and Coffee. Thanks for providing a tasty dinner, dessert and a variety of things to drink. Thanks also to Gallucci’s Pizzeria and the Chamber of Commerce for advertising our event on their readerboards, and to The News Guard and Oregon Coast Today for feature stories prior to our event. Niki Price was a joy to work with and the LCCC volunteers were equally pleasant and reliable. Several of our friends also volunteered and it’ll be hard to thank them enough for their efforts. Keith Altomare did a great job as our emcee. The dancers and singers put on a wonderful show that featured ballroom and Latin dances, plus some hip hop and line dancing. Thanks for sharing those things you’ve learned to do so well. And to those of you who spent your money to come to our event, thank you. You filled the LCCC auditorium and helped us do

Life Choices Someone posed a very interesting “Letter to the Editor” asking the questions, “Since when are we allowed to pick and choose which laws we enforce?” That brought a question to my mind: “Since when are we allowed to pick and choose which laws we obey?” I wonder how many of us go over the speed limit when driving. How many choose not to use our turn indicators when changing lanes or turning. How many don’t come to a complete stop at a stop sign or even don’t stop at all for a red light? How many have chosen to omit untraceable cash money from your income when doing your taxes to tweak the number just a bit? I wonder how many smoke pot or jay walk or cross against the traffic signal? Dennis Dotson made a choice and I’m sure he is ready to face whatever consequences come of it. I’m also sure that he will choose to defend and protect you,

Thanks from THS Cheer and Dance Taft High Cheer and Dance would like to thank everyone for a wonderful season and community support. We couldn’t have done it all without the help of the following individuals and businesses: Charlie and Rebecca Mina, Jayne Jones and Aunt Shannon, Gallucci’s, Karen Richards, Laurie Domingo, Ronalle Knight, Mr. and Mrs. Pfleiger, Danyl Scott, Mrs. O’Neil, Wendy O’Neil with Avon, Hawaiian Sun, Tan Republic, Station 3 Embroidery, Kenny’s IGA, Carolyn and Richard Plummer, Rotary of Lincoln City, the assisting coaching staff of Sherry Fitch and her family, Dori Bennett and her family, the administration at THS including Athletic Director Kris Wilkinson and the front office staff, and everyone that brought snacks, gave us pop cans, and cheered us on along the way. Please forgive us if we have forgotten to mention you by name, we know so many contributed to our success. We have a great community and we are proud to be a part of it. Thank you again.

Community Out of the Ark

Raccoon won’t fit bill as family pet By Karen R. Hessen

When I was a child, my family lived in El Cajon, a suburb of San Diego, where summer temperatures were often over 100 degrees. El Cajon is Spanish for “the box” and our small town was indeed boxed-in between a carton-shaped formation of hills that kept the ocean breezes from reaching us and bringing cool relief. My sister, Amy, has always had a heart for animals. She was the older sibling, so the pets were hers . In the summer, our family tent-camped in the nearby Cuyamaca Mountains or at Mt. Palomar. Warm summer evenings were spent around the Coleman lanterns, where friendly raccoons would seek handouts of marshmallows, popcorn or any other nibbles we would offer them from outstretched fingers. Amy loved animals of all kinds. During the day she would try to entice squirrels and chipmunks to eat from her hands. She was often successful. Back home, Amy would attempt to persuade our daddy to buy her a pet raccoon. In those days, you could order the clever mammals, monkeys, squirrels and other exotic animals from the Spiegel catalog. The UPS truck would deliver them to your door in a big box. I think if Daddy had been a single parent, we probably would have had a raccoon. But as luck would have it, Amy and I had a mother - a sensible, down-to-earth mother, who stood less than 5 feet tall, but had the spunk to put the kibosh on things we wanted, but shouldn’t have. I’m sure mother visualized a small forest of conifers growing in the living room of her “starter home.” Mother may have thought, when she wanted to launder her unmentionables, she would

be sharing the bathroom sink with the little critter rinsing his food. Whatever mother’s reasons, we didn’t get the curious playmate. Maybe it is because of my unsatisfied desire for a pet raccoon that I find them so enthralling now. One of the things I like about our home in Seaside is the playful ring-tailed mammals. We have a large evergreen tree in our front yard. When we bought the house, a true fixer-upper, in 1999, there were a couple of ropes tied to the tree’s low hanging branches. At night, a family of raccoons would come to play on the ropes like acrobats in the circus. We are not so naïve to think our domestic animals and raccoons are a good mix in the same yard. So we removed the ropes and took other measures to make our yard unattractive to the masked bandits. Still, when I lie in bed at night, with the blinds closed, I can watch as raccoons walk along the top of our fence. The security light from our neighbor’s back porch cast them in silhouette. When I just need a raccoon fix, I lie awake and wait. Occasionally they walk in family groups, sometimes alone. The night marauders have picked the high, safe route --above the barking dogs and away from the dangers of traffic. They track from their dens in wooded areas near the river toward places with more plentiful food sources, like the promenade or the beach -– back and forth. I’m thinking of having a sleepover -– hot chocolate with marshmallows, pizza, popcorn and inviting Amy. If you have an animal story you would like to share with readers of the column “Out of the Ark” please contact me at karenwrites@ Karen R. Hessen is a Seaside and Forest Grove resident.

Sheriff’s Tips

Ensure your guns are stored safely Sheriff’s Tips By Sheriff Dennis Dotson

Every year we hear tragic stories about a youngster playing with a gun and accidentally shooting a friend or himself/herself. Often times these tragedies end up with a death. Over the past decade, this country has experienced active shooter events resulting in death where the guns used were owned by a parent or friend. Regardless of your opinions about gun

ownership, the issue of safe storage is one that everyone should take seriously. Every gun owner should carefully consider the reasons for having a gun. If there is no compelling need to own a gun, remove it from your home. A gun increases, not decreases, the danger to your family. If you own firearms, carefully consider where to keep them. Hall closets, nightstands, drawers by the outside doors of your home and other traditional places are often where criminals, and curious children, look first. Store guns unloaded, locked up and with a lock

on the trigger. Consider a lock box for handguns. There are also gun-safes for long-barrel firearms. Store ammunition separately and locked up. If you are a family member and are experiencing high levels of anger, fear or depression, remove guns from your home. It is during these times a gun is often used against a loved one or against oneself. Never handle a gun when under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Never leave a gun in your vehicle. Guns are often stolen from cars. Teach children never to touch a firearm without

supervision, and to immediately tell an adult if they find a gun. Know where your firearms are at all times. You are accountable for them, and you are responsible for your gun not being used against a family member. All gun owners should receive training in the safe handling and care of their guns and ammunition. Free gunlocks are available at your Sheriff’s Office.

Harbor Lights Inn, a hidden treasure in Depoe Bay By Jeremy C. Ruark The News Guard

You don’t have to go very far to find a hidden treasure in Depoe Bay. Locals and visitors are discovering the newly renovated Harbor Lights Inn. The inn sits on the east side of Depoe Bay Harbor at 235 Bayview Drive just up the street from the U.S. Coast Guard station. The inn, originally built and opened as a motel in 1989, has been transformed into a bed and breakfast. It offers 11 guest rooms. Eight have fireplaces. All the guest rooms have views of Depoe Bay Harbor. “We opened up the dining area and the bar and removed a middle wall so that it made the dining room larger and more convenient,” said Bob Blessinger. “We also repainted all the guest rooms and added new window covers in all the rooms,” said Beni Blessinger. The Blessingers are the inn operators and have hired Deanna Beardon and Lisa Sudieth as staff members. Bill loves to cook and has become the inn’s chef. “I just enjoy the cooking,” he said. “I’ve been in the restaurant business forever and I really enjoy it.” “Yes. And I stay out of his way,” said Beni. “I tend to the bar and all the other things.” Bill has designed a dinner menu


Chef Bob Blessinger prepares a special menu item for the guests at the Harbor Lights Inn. with several Italian food specialties, including Dungeness crab ravioli, pasta made from scratch and Italian meat loaf. The couple offers hot breakfasts to order for guests and has opened the inn for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights to guests and visitors. As the busy tourist season approaches, the Blessingers are planning to utilize the inn’s harbor view deck for outdoor meals. “We will be cooking steaks and burgers on the deck starting Memorial Day for the summer season,” Bill said. So far the Blessinger’s have invested $25,000 in their remodel of the inn.

“We want to do more,” said Bill. “We’d like to re-side the place and seal the parking lot.” The couple purchased the Inn from its former owner, Terry McGrath, in July after working at the local landmark for four years. The two originally had planned to leave Depoe Bay. “We were all packed up and ready to move when Terry gave us a deal we couldn’t refuse,” said Beni. “Owning the inn gives us the freedom to do the things we wanted to do and have more fun with it,” said Bill. “This is really Depoe Bay’s hidden treasure,” said Beni.

Kill Traps

From page A1

Cindy didn’t realize that Fritz had run to one of the traps after smelling food used as bait. By the time Cindy got close enough to read the warning sign, it was too late. Fritz was caught in the trap and killed. “I was just beside myself with emotion,” Cindy said. “It was a shocking and emotional experience.” According to Beere, the placement of the traps was key to Fritz’s death. “There was really not enough time for people to see the warning,” he said. “If it had been posted at the front of the parking lot, we would not have taken Fritz there. If there had been a warning when we came in this would have never have happened.” Michelle Dennehy, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife statewide marketing and wildlife communications coordinator, said the incident has saddened the hatchery workers and all the agency’s employees. “We are an agency of dog lovers here and we feel terrible about what has happened (to Fritz),” said Dennehy. USDA Wildlife Services had placed the traps on Jan. 3 to deal with an increasing

river otter problem at the hatchery. The river otters were taking fish from the hatchery water areas. “USDA Wildlife Services placed the traps in a brushy area away from where people and pets go,” said Dennehy. “Three traps were set and three signs were set near the traps to warn people. For example, the first sign was 15 feet from the first trap.” But Corder said the distance between the warning sign and the trap that killed Fritz was different. “We measured it from the sign to the trap,” she said. “It was 30 feet. There was absolutely not enough warning.” Dennehy acknowledges that warning signs about the traps were not posted in the front of the parking lot and were not commercially made signs, but were placed near the traps. Following the dog’s death, the traps at the hatchery were deactivated and new signs have been posted. “ODFW does allow dogs at fish hatcheries,” said Dennehy. “But the main purpose of a fish hatchery is fish production. Dogs need to be under visitors’ control. All of our 33 hatcheries in Oregon now have signs saying dogs need to be leashed.”

The couple has shared their story with the animal defense group Predator Defense (, a national nonprofit (501(c) (3) organization promoting non-lethal predator control in hopes that other dog owners will become aware of the use of the kill traps. “Children play in the hatchery area,” said Corder. “What if it would have been a child that had gotten caught in those traps?” “The point we want to make is, this was totally avoidable by Wildlife Services not adhering to their own directives pertaining to traps and trapping devices,” said Beere. He said the Wildlife Services directive 2.450 reads: “Appropriate warning signs will be posted on main entrances or commonly used access points to areas where foot hold traps, snares or rotating jaw (Conibear -type) traps are in use. Signs will be routinely checked to assure they are present, obvious and readable. Signs must be removed when equipment is no longer in use.” Beere and Corder also are supporting development of a park in Lincoln City to allow dogs to run free. A citizens’ committee continues to develop plans to establish such a park.

spring and summer as the seasonal tourism season begins. Events like the annual Antique Week, The Lincoln City Chamber of Commerce Super Auction and at least one day of bright sunny and warm weather brought many people into the city during the President’s Day three-day weekend, clogging up traffic along Highway 101 through Lincoln City. “It feels like spring with the trees and flowers blooming,” said Nonni Augustine, Lincoln City Chamber of Commerce executive director. “We are seeing people getting out and wanting to spend their money.” Augustine said most of the merchants are conservatively expecting a positive spring with good traffic. “People are anticipating a little break from what has been happening with the economy,” said Augustine. “You can see that in some of the building remodeling as you drive through Lincoln City. It is positive.” She said hotels, motels, and bed and breakfasts are already hiring, anticipating a profitable season ahead. But Oregon Workforce Analyst Will Summers said the key to a successful coastal tourism season will depend on a number of factors. “What will have the influence on the tourist season economy will depend on what happens in Portland,” said Summers. “How well is Portland doing and are people feeling better about the economy overall and safer about their jobs will be a key factor.” According to Summers, even with favorable weather along the coast, economic concerns will determine the foot traffic at Lincoln City retail outlets. “If they are worried about their job and the economy is tanking, they won’t be here,” said Summers. “But right now we are seeing positive signals and there is stable growth in Portland and the Willamette Valley, so I think we will

see stable and consistent economic growth in Lincoln City.” Traditionally, the tourism season triggers hiring at lodging facilities, restaurants, and retail shops, but that hiring is usually seasonal and usually offers minimum wage positions. But Summers said most business operators are being very conservative in hiring. “We are seeing fewer people in the workforce,” said Summers. Worksource Oregon reports the Lincoln County workforce was at 22,000 in December 2012. In December 2011, the county workforce totaled over 23,000. “Because labor is one of the viable costs that employers have control over they will keep staff at a smart level,” he said. According to Summers, successful business operators are using current employees and technology, have a better inventory system, have adopted better controls to reduce shoplifting and have rearranged their shop for customer convenience. “Those business operators are working smarter with what they have to increase the opportunity for new revenue,” said Summers. Another key factor to draw more people to Lincoln City are the spring and summer events. “The Newport Seafood and Wine Festival brings the first big spring tourism wave of folks to Lincoln County,” said Summers. Lincoln City Visitors and Convention Bureau Director Sandy Pfaff agreed that the community events are vital in attracting visitors year round.

“People who come to the beach don’t just want to walk on the beach,” said Pfaff. “They want activities when it’s time to come off the beach. People want entertainment, and they usually want to be involved in that entertainment. They want to get they hands on things so they can learn and they can take something home as a bragging right. So we have to diversify.” The bureau is partnering with the Lincoln City Cultural Center and other groups to build a strong yearlong list of community activities. While it is not the lead in the activities, the bureau is encouraging other groups to oversee coordination of the events. Pfaff also said the culture of how people get information about Lincoln City is also changing with more and more people planning trips and vacations through the Internet. The bureau is seeing increasing Internet activity on its web and Facebook pages, while phone call requests and visitor drop-ins have declined by about half of what they were five years ago. People want to travel as easy as they can,” said Pfaff. “That’s why our web sites and those of Lincoln City businesses have to be pristine and easy to use. Anything you can do to help people navigate is vital. If you don’t they will go away.” Pfaff said the presentation of businesses is also key in attracting customers. “If there are dead flies in the window and the store aisles are crammed, shoppers won’t want to come in,” said Pfaff. “Presentation is important. It has to be good.”

Taft girls drop time at state championships

BY JIM FOSSUM The News Guard

The Taft High girls 400yard freestyle relay team dropped 11 seconds off its second-place time at last week’s district meet in Astoria and made a six-second improvement on its best time ever in placing ninth last weekend at the Oregon Student Activities Association Swimming Championships in Gresham. The Taft team — comprised of seniors Marlee Garding, Kassie Gile and Destiny Zook and freshman Madison Garding finished in 4:06.86 and in ninth place at the state championship meet Feb. 1516 at Mt. Hood Community College. “The addition of Madison to the relay helped us a lot,” Parker said, “and the fact that everyone had a week to try and recover from the flu.” Also ninth were Zook

Sophomores BillyAnn Stempel and Averi Affeld-Anderson also attended the meet and warmed up as alternate relay participants. “All in all, the kids were happy with their swims, given this season of illness

and other commitments and issues,” Parker said. “It was a fast meet overall with a bunch of new freshman from other districts.” For complete state swimming results, go to swimming/2013/4A/index. htm.

Steere to be lone Taft athlete at state BY JIM FOSSUM The News Guard


For Taft High wrestling coach Luke Hall, it couldn’t get much worse: “Our trouble was a combination of bad wrestling and bad luck,” Hall said shortly after just one Tiger advanced Saturday, Feb. 16, from the Special District 4 Championships in Philomath to this week’s state finals. “Some of the brackets just didn’t shake out the way that I thought that they would, and some of our wrestlers just didn’t perform up to the level of their capabilities.” Confident that as many as four Tigers could reach state by placing in the top four, Taft left the competition in virtually the same situation if did a year ago when junior Seth Steere advanced to state. It was Steere once again who became the Tigers’ lone representative Feb. 22-23 in the Oregon Student Activities Association Wrestling Championships at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland with a fourth-place finish at 152 pounds.

“Seth accomplished almost exactly what he did last year,” Hall said, “and while on the surface that may sound like I wasn’t impressed with his effort, it’s worth pointing out that there was a lot more to overcome this time around.” Steere won bus first two matches by fall and major decision before losing two his final three matches by fall, including a defeat to Sweet Home’s Tyler Cowger, the odds-on favorite to claim the state championship. “Seth did a good job of taking care of his part and getting things done,” Hall said as Steere tried to overcome a low seeding entering the meet. “He’ll have to take on another district’s champion as the fourth place finisher from our district, so his work in the state tourney will be cut out for him.” Unquestionably, it was sophomore Joe Salsbery, who was victimized by a bracketing loophole to place fifth at 126, who had the most

frustrating tournament for the Tigers, Hall said, but not from any fault of his own. A match scarred by a controversial pin that brought a one-point team penalty against an argumentative Hall for unsportsmanlike conduct, helped keep Salsbery out of the state tournament with a fifth-place finish despite having dominated a wrestler ahead of him. “All said, Joe kept a good attitude,” Hall said. Salsbery will be an alternate in case one of the four wrestlers ahead of him cannot compete. Hall said Taft’s misfortune, continued with senior Zac Coultas, who had two years of experience at state, at 113 pounds. “I hate to say it, but Zac had probably the worst tournament I’ve ever seen him wrestle,” Hall said “He honestly had a bracket that was ready-made for him to make it all the way to the semifinals before I expected him to be challenged.” However, Coultas lost to Central’s Tim Blair, who he pinned in the first round a little more than a week ago,

15-11. He then was eliminated by fall by Junction City’s Joseph Goodwin in 1:12. “I’m not sure if it was a function of over-thinking things or letting the pressure of performing in his senior year get to him, but Zac really didn’t look like himself in either of his matches,” Hall said. “I just didn’t envision a scenario in which he’d be two-and-out. Either did Coultas. “He’d really been working hard this year, ironing out the kinks, and we’d seen such good work from Zac coming up to this meet that we expected so much more,” Hall said. While Coultas departed early, Blake Maxheimer, competing in the same 113-pound classification, advanced a round further by responding to being pinned in his first match and beating Newport’s Austin Ligon in 1:31. He then lost by fall to Goodwin, who had dispatched of Coultas, in 44 seconds. Two Taft seniors — Sergio Velazquez at 138 and 145-pound Brandon Terrill — bowed out of their prep

wrestling careers with early elimination, Velazquez in two matches, Terrill in three. ”Sergio and Brandon were two more tough ones to see go down,” Hall said. “ I’ve been extremely proud of their poise and maturity all season long. Sergio joined us last year and I know for a fact that he regrets not having gotten into the sport earlier. He grew by leaps and bounds this year, but the lack of mat time ultimately cost him. “Brandon was one of our top performers all season long, but his bracket was a mean one. For whatever reason, the 138- and 145-pound brackets were top-loaded with some of the deepest talent in the tournament. Junior Kevin Kovachevich provided a highlight in the first round of consolation by pinning Newport’s Nick Giles in the first period. s as time expired in the first period. Kovachevich won two matches and lost two matches, all by fall. “Kevin made some big strides as this season went on, and I feel like we’re getting pretty close to him being a state competitor,” Hall said.

Tigers closing in on first league win

JIM FOSSUM The News Guard

The gap is closing, and third-year Taft High girls basketball coach Dan Mock couldn’t be prouder. While the frustration of another season without an Oregon West Conference victory is upon them, Mock and the Tigers again displayed their tenacity in trying to break a 5-year-old 83-game losing streak with the season finale scheduled Tuesday, Feb. 19 (past deadline), at first-place Cascade (17-5 overall, 8-1 Oregon West). “We didn’t get the result that we wanted at the end of the night, but I am proud at the improvement I’ve seen over the past two weeks,” said Mock, whose Tigers lost 31-20 to Newport on Friday, Feb. 15, and 53-27 to Central on Tuesday, Feb. 12. “This is the narrowest margin of loss we’ve had in a league game in four years. We just need to stay the course, finish the season off strong, work to improve this summer, get more girls to turn out for basketball next season, and continue to build this program.” With its last victory over a Class 4A school dating to February 2008, Taft was led by junior Taylor Adams with eight points and senior Jessie Wisniewski with seven. But Newport’s Jasmine Wagner and Katie Losier scored 12 points apiece to overcome the Tigers, who watched departing seniors Karli Martin, Alexa Taunton and Wisniewski play their final home game. “As a team, we were looking forward to this matchup with our Central Coast rivals,” Mock


Taft junior Taylor Adams launches a shot in the Tigers’ 31-20 home defeat to Newport on Friday, Feb. 15.

Girls Basketball said. “We had a dismal performance this season at Newport [a 58-28 loss on Jan. 26], and we were determined to redeem ourselves.” Taft appeared more than ready to answer the call as it managed to remain tied, 8-8, through the first quarter and trailed 22-14 at halftime in holding the Cubs (11-12, 4-5) to their fourth lowest offensive output of the season. “Defensively, I was really pleased with the way we played.” Mock said. “I tried to throw everything, including the kitchen sink, at New-

port, and the girls pretty much executed things the way I hoped they would.” While the Tigers limited Wagner, Newport’s top player to 12 points, Losier hit four 3-pointers, including one off-target shot that glanced in off the glass and another that just beat the third-period buzzer. “Both of those shots stung us,” Mock said. So did the Tigers’ early shooting. “We really hurt ourselves offensively in the first half with several missed shots,” he said. “We had a number of opportunities from within 15 feet, and we kept coming up empty. The story of the second half was our

decision-making with the basketball.” Mock said there were some possessions where his team broke down and became stagnant on offense,

and other instances where it tried to force things and turned the ball over. “Some of that responsibility is on us as a team,” he said, “and some of that was

Newport disrupting us with their defensive effort in the second half.” Meanwhile, secondplace Central (16-6, 7-2) defeated host Taft 53-27 to start the week’s play. The middle stretch of Tuesday’s game proved to be the Tigers’ undoing after the Panthers had built a 1210 first-quarter lead. Central, with seven players taller than Taft’s tallest, outscored the Tigers 34-10 over the second and third quarters, when fatigue set in. “Our first quarter was probably the best quarter of basketball we have played as a team all season long,” Mock said. “Our aggressiveness was good, we minimized our turnovers, and we were able to score some points.” Most of those were scored by senior Jessie Wisniewski, who led the way with 16 for the Tigers. “The game changed as our girls started to get tired,” Mock said. “As we got tired, we got sloppy handling the basketball, and some of our decision making with the basketball became questionable, as well. Central was able to dictate the tempo at which the game was being played, and we kind of allowed ourselves to fall victim to that.” Besides having a deeper bench, Central ‘s considerable height advantage proved too much to overcome, Mock said. “As we grew more tired, that advantage became more noticeable,” he said. “We struggled to keep their posts out of their comfort zone on offense, and their posts really hurt us with their ability to gain offensive rebounds.”

Local boys excel at Oregon youth swim meet Mason Garding of the Lincoln City Swim Club posted sectional-qualifying times in the boys’ 10-and-under 100-yard butterfly and 50-yard free-

style at the Oregon state 10-and-under championships in Springfeld on Sunday, Feb. 17, in his final age-group meet before he turns 11.

Eight-year-old Sam Cortes, who does not turn 9 until May, won the 25-yard free and placed second in the 50- and 100yard freestyle events. Hunter Lunstedt,

10, also had some good swims, Parker said, particularly the 100 breaststroke. Lunstedt turns 11 in April, so the competition will soon stiffen. “The guys did really

well,” Parker said of the meet, which attracted more than 300 swimmers from throughout Oregon. “It was a very intense meet — lots of kids, parents and pressure. Some of these

guys swim better than the high school kids” The top eight finishers in each event received medals and ninth through 16th got ribbons.

Tigers drop two more league games BY JIM FOSSUM The News Guard

Oregon West Boys Basketball Standings

The Taft High boys basketball team dropped two Oregon West Conference home games last week, losing 40-34 to Central on Tuesday, Feb. 12, and 53-33 to Newport on Friday, Feb. 15. “I thought we came out with pretty good energy at the start of the game, “ Taft coach Mark Williams said of Friday’s 20-point defeat to the rival Cubs (11-12 overall, 4-5 Oregon West). “We just couldn’t make anything.” Taft (7-15, 0-9) stayed winless in league play after scoring just just four points in the third quarter. The Tigers were scheduled to conclude their season Tuesday, Feb. 19 (past deadline), at No. 1-ranked Cascade (22-1, 8-1). “We were getting good looks,” Williams said. “We just couldn’t get anything to go in.’ Taft senior Brent Martin was the exception, scoring a

Boys Basketball team-high 20 points for the Tigers. Taft faced a man-to-man defense the entire night and played adequate defense, Williams said. “The first half, we did a good job of keeping them off the glass and theygot a lot of offensive rebounds and we could just not hit a shot,” he said. You didn’t have to look far to identify the difference between the school’s in Cen-

tral’s six-point road victory over Taft on Tuesday. Both teams shot 50 percent from the field, and both made 25 percent of its 3-pointers, but the Panthers shot 14 free throws to just three for Taft. Skyler Lopez led Taft with 12 points and six rebounds. “The boys battled hard and rebounded well against a much bigger team,” Williams said. “The defense was very good, our matchup zone gave them trouble and our man defense was also effective.”


Taft’s Skyler Lopez applies defensive pressure on a Newport opponent while senior Chris Knudson breaks in pursuit of the ball to provide defensive support in the Tigers’ 53-33 defeat on Friday, Feb. 15.

Superintendent to share budget information Lincoln County School District Superintendent Tom Rinearson is part of an effort by the Confederation of School Administrators (COSA) to share information regarding how different levels of state school funding will affect the district. Rinearson and LCSD Business Manager Julie Baldwin presented information during a Feb 12 LCSD board meeting, showing potential impact to LCSD with state funding at four different levels. The financial impact information, shared was gathered quickly, but represents one snapshot of what could occur. The funding level proposed by Gov. John Kitzhaber ($6.15 billion for K-12 education, statewide in the next biennium), is a “crisis budget”

Schools level of funding, officials said. In LCSD, an additional five days of school would be cut (for a total of 10) for the coming year. Programs would have to be reduced, including access to college courses. Textbook adoptions would be eliminated, impacting Common Core State Standards. Staff would be reduced (two administrators, four teachers, eight classified), and all cocurricular activities would be eliminated. At the next level of funding ($6.550 billion), cuts to LCSD would still need to occur. Five more school days would still need to be cut (total of 10). No cash reserves would be available to spend, as was done in

the current year. At the $6.750 billion level of state funding for K-12 (a “stability budget”), all cut days would likely be restored. This funding level could also mean improvement in student achievement. The final funding level of $6.895 billion is the “investment and improvement” budget. A full school year would be provided, academic counseling support would be enhanced, and targeted investments aimed at improving achievement for all students would be made. This funding level would put LCSD on a trajectory to achieve Oregon’s 40-40-20 goal. Rinerason reported the 2013-14 budget for LCSD will be built on an assumed state

funding level of $6.2 billion for the coming biennium, though the true amount is yet unknown. Staffing sheets will go out to principals in March. Rinearson reported the latest thinking is that Education Service Districts will be responsible for all professional development mentor programs, teacher improvement centers, and early childhood councils. • CAREER TECH — A public hearing was held to receive comments on the request from Lincoln City Career Tech Charter School to continue its contract with the district. The current contract will expire June 30, 2013. The school would like to expand its enrollment by an additional 20 slots to operate a satellite campus in Newport. This satellite campus would

serve students through a new YouthBuild program. Community Services Consortium (CSC) Workforce and Education Director Clay Martin, Principal Sean Larsen and Education Supervisor Mark Peery presented information about Career Tech for the board’s consideration. A decision on the renewal will be considered by the board at its next meeting. at 7 p.m. March 12 at Toledo Elementary School. • BOND EXPENDITURES — For capital construction, $31.2 million has been spent in Lincoln County since passage of the general obligation bond measure to improve Lincoln County schools. This figure represents 66 percent of the total bond funds spent. • SUPERINTENDENT’S EVALUATION — LCSD Board

of Directors Vice Chairman Jean Turner shared the results of the Board’s annual evaluation of Rinearson. As in past years, board members, principals and Learning Support Team members completed the evaluation form. Turner commended the superintendent for his “continued outstanding work with leadership/district culture, policy/governance, values/ ethics of leadership and labor relations.” Turner said the board is prepared to offer the superintendent a three-year contract, the longest allowed by state law. For additional information on the school district, contact LCSD Secretary Laurie Urquhart or Rinearson at 541265-4403.

Pacific City dory story on OPB Feb. 28 O “

ur students who col“ lected oral histories came away changed. They really identified with the dory fishermen and women in this community and developed a tremendous respect for their way

- Brenda DeVore Marshall

Editor’s Note: This is a follow up to an article about the Linfield College Pacific City dory fishermen story that was featured in The News Guard last fall. The Pacific City dory fleet will be featured on Oregon Public Broadcasting in a televised special Thursday, Feb. 28, at 8:30 p.m. and the following Sunday at 6:30 p.m., and will be available online. OPB’s Oregon Field Guide will highlight an unusual partnership between Pacific City dory fishermen and students at Linfield College. During the past two years, Linfield students and professors have collected oral histories from more than 80 dory fishermen and women in Pacific City, hoping to preserve the cultural history of one of the most unique fishing

fleets in the world. “Our students who collected oral histories came away changed,” said Brenda DeVore Marshall, a Linfield theatre and communication arts professor who directed the project. “They really identified with the dory fishermen and women in this community and developed a tremendous respect for their way of life. And they came to understand the importance of telling stories and how those stories help us understand each other.” The students interviewed children as young as nine and fishermen as old as 91, and are now in the process of digitizing videos and photos for an online archive at Linfield College. Students have also developed scholarly papers and a traveling photo exhibit, due in coastal towns this spring. Their original theatre production, inspired by the town’s dory culture and set in Pacific City, was staged in November. “The students who were involved in the theatre production were really invested in the project,” DeVore Marshall said. “When they performed in Pacific City and sensed how the audience members reacted to the play, they were visibly moved.

“This whole project has been a humbling experience for me,” she said. “I feel privileged to have been able to work with this community. This is a historical story we could easily lose, and yet it’s such an important part of Oregon’s past and present.” Oregon Field Guide, which explores the landscapes and cultures of Oregon, airs Thursday evenings

at 8:30 p.m. and repeats Sunday evenings at 6:30 p.m. on the public television stations of OPB. Episodes may also be viewed online one day after the broadcast. The online program archives may be accessed at watch. To purchase DVDs, call OPB at (503) 293-1904. “Launching Through the

Surf: The Dory Fleet of Pacific City” was spearheaded by Linfield College, in partnership with the Pacific City Arts Association and the Pacific City Dorymen’s Association. The project is supported by a grant from the Linfield Center for the Northwest, Oregon Arts Commission and Yamhill County Cultural Coalition.

Devils Lake creature gets a name Local school children have helped to name the sculpture that sits atop Regatta Grounds Park overlooking Devils Lake. It is now called Sparky, the Wish Guardian. Let There Be Arts, a grassroots organization dedicated to promoting arts education in the schools and community, and the Lincoln City Public Arts Committee, held a contest to give the Devil’s Lake creature an official name. 256 potential names were submitted by elementary school students. Thirteen finalists were selected. Artists Heidi Erickson and Doug Kroger chose two cowinners. Rachel Sheuing, a third grader at Taft Elementary who submitted Sparky, and Allyson

Hall, a second grader at Oceanlake Elementary who submitted Wish Guardian. The Devil’s Lake Creature has been given the name Sparky, the Wish Guardian. Hall and Sheuing were recognized for their winning entries during school celebrations Fed. 19. Commissioned by the Lincoln City’s Public Arts Committee and two years in the making, The Devil’s Lake Creature was created by and was constructed by Erickson and her fellow metal sculptor, Kroger. Located at the entrance to Regatta Grounds Park at Devil’s Lake in Lincoln City, the creature sculpture has watched over the area since August 2012.


Rose’s Dilemma opens at Theatre West Feb. 28 The actors at Theatre West present their production of Rose’s Dilemma, a comedy by Neil Simon, beginning Feb. 28. The story: In her beach house in the Hamptons, celebrated writer Rose Stern stands at a crossroads: she hasn’t written anything in years and money is getting short. Her former lover, literary lion Walsh McLaren, offers from beyond the grave-an opportunity to regain her celebrity and gross millions. It’s not going to be easy and a “ghost” writer is required setting in motion another touching and unpredictable romantic theatrical by America’s premier Pulitzer Prize-winning comic playwright. Appearing on the Jack Coyne stage are Bonnie Ross as Rose, John Farrell as Walsh, Sara Reyn-

olds-Rice as Arlene and David Crayk as Clancy. Cindy Wesolowski is the director.

property and additional sums secured by the Deed of Trust.

performance of which is secured by said Deed of Trust, and the words “trustee� and “beneficiary� include their respective successors in interest, if any. Anyone having any objection to the sale on any grounds whatsoever will be afforded an opportunity to be heard as to those objections if they bring a lawsuit to restrain the same. NOTICE TO RESIDENTIAL TENANTS: The property in which you are living is in foreclosure. A foreclosure sale is scheduled for June 7, 2013. Unless the lender who is foreclosing on this property is paid, the foreclosure will go through and someone new will own this property. The following information applies to you only if you occupy and rent this property as a residential dwelling under a legitimate rental agreement. The information does not apply to you if you own this property or if you are not a residential tenant. If the foreclosure goes through, the business or individual who buys this property at the foreclosure sale has the right to require you to move out. The buyer must first give you an eviction notice in writing that specifies the date by which you must move out. The buyer may not give you this notice until after the foreclosure sale happens. If you do not leave before the moveout date, the buyer can have the sheriff remove you from the property after a court hearing. You will receive notice of the court hearing. FEDERAL LAW REQUIRES YOU TO BE NOTIFIED IF YOU ARE OCCUPYING AND RENTING THIS PROPERTY AS A RESIDENTIAL DWELLING UNDER A LEGITIMATE RENTAL AGREEMENT, FEDERAL LAW REQUIRES THE BUYER TO GIVE YOU NOTICE IN WRITING A CERTAIN NUMBER OF DAYS BEFORE THE BUYER CAN REQUIRE YOU TO MOVE OUT. THE FEDERAL LAW THAT REQUIRES THE BUYER TO GIVE YOU THIS NOTICE IS EFFECTIVE UNTIL DECEMBER 31, 2012. Under federal law, the buyer must give you at least 90 days notice in writing before requiring you to move out. If you are renting this property under a fixed-term lease (for example, a six-month or one-year lease), you may stay until the end of your lease term. If the buyer wants to move in and use this property as the buyer’s primary residence, the buyer can give you written notice and require you to move out after 90 days, even if you have

a fixed-term lease with more than 90 days left. STATE LAW NOTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS: IF THE FEDERAL LAW DOES NOT APPLY, STATE LAW STILL REQUIRES THE BUYER TO GIVE YOU NOTICE IN WRITING BEFORE REQUIRING YOU TO MOVE OUT IF YOU ARE OCCUPYING AND RENTING THE PROPERTY AS A TENANT IN GOOD FAITH. EVEN IF THE FEDERAL LAW REQUIREMENT IS NO LONGER EFFECTIVE AFTER DECEMBER 31, 2012, THE REQUIREMENT UNDER STATE LAW STILL APPLIES TO YOUR SITUATION. Under state law, if you have a fixed-term lease (for example, a sixmonth or one-year lease), the buyer must give you at least 60 days notice in writing before requiring you to move out. If the buyer wants to move in and use this property as the buyer’s primary residence, the buyer can give you written notice and require you to move out after 30 days, even if you have a fixed-term lease with more than 30 days left. If you are renting under a month-to-month or week-to-week rental agreement, the buyer must give you at least 30 days notice in writing before requiring you to move out. IMPORTANT: For the buyer to be required to give you notice under state law, you must prove to the business or individual who is handling the foreclosure sale that you are occupying and renting this property as a residential dwelling under a legitimate rental agreement. The name and address of the business or individual who is handling the foreclosure sale is shown on this notice under the heading “TRUSTEE�. You must mail or deliver your proof not later than 5/8/2013 (30 days before the date first set for the foreclosure sale). Your proof must be in writing and should be a copy of your rental agreement or lease. If you do not have a written rental agreement or lease, you can provide other proof, such as receipts for rent you paid. ABOUT YOUR SECURITY DEPOSIT Under state law, you may apply your security deposit and any rent you paid in advance against the current rent you owe your landlord. To do this, you must notify your landlord in writing that you want to subtract the amount of your security deposit or prepaid rent from you rent payment. You may do this only for the rent you owe you current landlord. If you do this, you must do so before

the foreclosure sale. The business or individual who buys this property at the foreclosure sale is not responsible to you for any deposit or prepaid rent you paid to your landlord. ABOUT YOUR TENANCY AFTER THE FORECLOSURE SALE The business or individual who buys this property at the foreclosure sale may be willing to allow you to stay as a tenant instead of requiring you to move out. You should contact the buyer to discuss that possibility if you would like to stay. Under state law, if the buyer accepts rent from you, signs a new residential rental agreement with you or does not notify you in writing within 30 days after the date of the foreclosure sale that you must move out, the buyer becomes your new landlord and must maintain the property. Otherwise, the buyer is not your landlord and is not responsible for maintaining the property on your behalf and you must move out by the date the buyer specifies in a notice to you. YOU SHOULD CONTINUE TO PAY RENT TO YOUR LANDLORD UNTIL THE PROPERTY IS SOLD TO ANOTHER BUSINESS OR INDIVIDUAL OR UNTIL A COURT OR A LENDER TELLS YOU OTHERWISE. IF YOU DO NOT PAY RENT, YOU CAN BE EVICTED, AS EXPLAINED ABOVE, YOU MAY BE ABLE TO APPLY A DEPOSIT YOU MADE OR PREPAID RENT YOU PAID AGAINST YOUR CURRENT RENT OBLIGATION. BE SURE TO KEEP PROOF OF ANY PAYMENTS YOU MAKE AND OF ANY NOTICE YOU GIVE OR RECEIVE CONCERNING THE APPLICATION OF YOUR DEPOSIT OR YOUR PREPAID RENT. IT IS UNLAWFUL FOR ANY PERSON TO TRY TO FORCE YOU TO LEAVE YOUR HOME WITHOUT FIRST GOING TO COURT TO EVICT YOU. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS, YOU MAY WISH TO CONSULT A LAWYER. If you believe you need legal assistance, contact the Oregon State Bar at 800-452-7636 and ask for lawyer referral service. Contact information for the Oregon State Bar is included with this notice. If you do not have enough money to pay a lawyer and are otherwise eligible, you may be able to receive legal assistance for free.
