Distracted drivers to be targeted

Law enforcement agencies in Lincoln County are gearing up for the busy spring and summer tourist seasons by mounting various traffic enforcement campaigns to keep the roadways safe. Police, sheriff deputies and state police troopers will be watching for a variety of violations, including distracted driving. “We are looking for those drivers that are illegally using their cell phones to talk or to text with,” said Lincoln City Police Sgt. Jeffrey Winn. “Unless it is a hands-free device, those drivers are breaking the law.” The fine for talking or texting with an electronic device, such as a hands-on cell phone, is $160. “We will likely issue a ticket to those drivers violating the law,” Winn said. “The law has been in effect for sometime and drivers should be educated about it.”

A car gets stuck in the sand Sept. 13 and nearly washed out to sea before it was pulled out of the surf near 21st Street in Lincoln City.

A light pole that has been tuned into a nest for a family of Osprey at the Taft High 7-12 football field will soon be moved as part of a lighting upgrade. “We went through the same issue at Waldport High School with an osprey nest at that school when we took down the polls there,” Rich Belloni, Lincoln County School District’s director of support services, said. “We’ve talked with Pacific Power and an environmental expert with Oregon Fish and Wildlife Department about putting in a wood pole at the field with the nest on top of it. It is about a 50-50 chance that the osprey will come back. They did at Waldport.” The osprey settled in on the light pole at Taft last summer. The birds have since migrated to South America for the winter. Belloni said they hope to make the switch before the osprey return to the high school field to lay eggs later this year. He said the osprey could return to the field as soon as mid-April. “They could be back anytime now,” he said.

Lake algae raises economic, environmental concerns Increased blue-green algae in Devils Lake is raising concern from property owners and businesses that offer recreation at the Lincoln City waterway. “The algae concerns have definitely returned to the lake,” Devils Lake Water Improvement District (DLWID) Manager Paul Robertson said. “The lake has turned green.” As of March 18, no health advisory had been issued concerning the algae blooms. However, on Aug. 1 last summer, the Oregon Public Health Authority issued a health advisory for the lake after a proliferation of the algae blooms and associated toxins were discovered during routine monitoring. According to health officials, the cyanotoxin concentrations found in the water can be harmful to humans and animals. Swallowing or inhaling water droplets should be avoided, and people with skin sensitivities or who are prone to rashes and other skin disorders should avoid water contact. Drinking water directly from Devils Lake during such health adviso-

ries is especially dangerous. Oregon Public Health officials warned campers and other visitors that toxins cannot be removed by boiling, filtering or treating the water with camp-style filters. During the health advisory, people who draw inhome water directly from Devils Lake were advised to use an alternative water source because private treatment systems are not proven effective in removing algae toxins. However, public drinking water systems can reduce algae toxins through proper filtration and disinfection. The lake advisory was lifted Nov. 20. Robertson said the algae is caused by sunlight, which produces nutrients and are enhanced by septic tanks that are leaking into the lake. “We are now looking into what resources we

have to begin monitoring the lake,” he said. “Monitoring usually follows the recreation period from Memorial Day to Labor Day. That’s when it makes the most sense because that’s when people are using the lake the most.” Robertson said the DLWID continues to work with property owners and the City to develop a long-term solution to the growth. “We are taking steps to clean the lake,” he said. “We began those steps in 2009 to get a mandatory septic tank inspection program. The tanks are a source of nutrients, and what the blooms basically feed on. We are also working with the City in developing a sewer system around the lake.” City officials have estimated that the sewer project could cost $5 million.

JEREMY C. RUARK/THE NEWS GUARD

A crew from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife stocked Devils Lake with 6,500 trout on Friday, March 14. There are concerns about the increase of toxic algae blooms affecting the health of the lake. Robertson said the DLWID is offering property owners incentives to help clean the rim of the lake. “The shoreline projects include rebuilding and reestablishing native plants, which is the simplest and easy way to get nutrients out of the lake,” he said. “It is a major project that

property owners can do. We provide up to $750 per parcel, but would consider projects on multiple parcels.” “There is definitely a water quality issue at Devils Lake,” Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW ) biologist Christine Clapp said as she and

an ODFW crew stocked the lake with 6,500 trout Friday, March 14. “The steps the DLWID are taking are important to the health of this lake. The lake is a great place to come and recreate.” Follow this developing story at thenewsguard.com

College president finalists hold public forums JEREMY C. RUARK jruark@countrymedia.net

Two of the four finalists for the role of Oregon Coast Community College (OCCC) president have outlined their experience during public interviews at the Newport campus. Robert Mohrbacher joined faculty and staff for his public forum March 13. David Smith met faculty and staff March 17. Candidates Bruce Koike and Birgitte Ryslinge were scheduled to conduct their interviews March 19 and 20. Mohrbacher is vice president of Instruction and Student Services at Big Bend Community College in Moses Lake, Wash. He

said he was attracted to the job because of its size. “I am very interested in a small college,” he said “Plus, the fact that my wife and I enjoy the Oregon Coast.” Mohrbacher said a small college offers the opportunity for a stronger relationship with the community. “You can get involved in the community and have an impact,” he said. “And, hopefully, students can see the opportunity of taking classes while they are still in high school, and that they don’t have to leave town for the additional education.” Mohrbacher said the challenges facing OCCC include budget, commu-

nity and college growth, accreditation, enhancing the nursing program and meeting the needs of Latino students. Smith is Colorado Northwestern Community College vice president of Instruction and Student Services. Koike is interim OCCC president and previous aquarium science program director.

David Lon Humphrey, a former Lincoln City Councilor and former Lincoln County School District teacher, has been sentenced to 84 months in prison. Humphrey was sentenced Monday, March 17, in Lincoln County Court. Humphrey pled guilty to multiple counts of encouraging child sex abuse on Jan. 15. The 61-year old former Taft Elementary School teacher was arrested at his home by Lincoln City Police Detectives on Jan. 14, 2013 on warrants obtained by the Oregon Department

charged with 10 counts of encouraging child sex abuse in the first degree and 15 counts of encouraging child sex abuse in the second degree. On Feb. 5, 2013, Humphrey posted 10 percent of the $1,750,000 bail set by Lincoln County Circuit Court Judge Thomas O. Branford and was released from jail under a modified security release. Humphrey taught grades three through six and towards the end of his career with the Lincoln County School District he taught eighth grade history.

Drivers in Lincoln City are facing the reality of the changing seasons as they feel the pinch of rising gasoline prices. Prices have soared 20 cents per gallon in the last several days. Gasoline is selling from $3.54 to $3.70 per gallon locally. Market experts said gasoline prices will increase as spring break approaches and unrest continues between Russia and Ukraine. “We are carefully watching the Russian-Ukraine issue because that situation puts upward pressure on crude oil prices,” AAA Public Affairs Director Marie Dodds said. “Also, Lincoln City is a bit further

expected.” Dodds said he encourages drivers to shop around before they gas up. “Even stations across the street from each other can have wildly different prices,” she said. “That’s why we are encouraging drivers to visit AAA.com to compare prices and track fuel costs at individual towns and cities.” The national average for regular unleaded is $3.52 a gallon, while the Oregon average inched up 8 cents to $3.59. Oregon is one of 15 states where prices have increased by at least a nickel in the last week. The national average is at its highest level since September.

Chamber honors

GUEST COLUMN Rep. David Gomberg

The 2014 session ended on March 7, and together the Legislature strengthened our schools, supported small businesses, helped seniors and made sure government works better for Oregonians. Now that the session is over, I’m looking forward to spending more time back on the Coast. Below you’ll find more details about the legislation we passed to prioritize highquality education and help get more Oregonians back to work.

Delivering Better Opportunities for Oregon’s Students

High-quality education is not a luxury – it’s a necessity. This year, I worked to improve school performance and to make community colleges and universities more affordable and accessible. The Legislature took steps to help Oregon’s students and their families find ways to afford education beyond high school and to support adults who are returning to school to develop new jobs skills. • A few weeks ago, we learned that due to a strengthening economy, revenue for K-12 schools is up by $98 million statewide for the 2014-15 school year. For Central Coast and Coast Range schools, that means a $1.53 million boost next year. That’s in addition to the historic $1 billion investment in Oregon’s public schools that the Legislature passed last session. More people working means we can improve funding without increasing taxes. • The “Aspiration to College” bill (HB 4116) will fund grants to support low-income

and first-generation community college students working to make a better life for themselves. • We expanded summer meal programs for lowerincome students (HB 4090). And, I spoke on the House Floor about lunch programs throughout the state. • HB 4120 expanded the scholarship program for children of police or firefighters killed or injured in the line of duty to include children of reserve officers and volunteer firefighters.

Creating Jobs and Encouraging Innovation

Oregon’s economy is in a steady, but slow, recovery. Things are getting better, but not fast enough – especially not for the middle-class and low-income families in our area who must work harder and longer just to keep up. Small businesses employ over half the state’s workforce and play a vital role in our local economies. But sometimes they need extra help. The Office of Small Business Assistance that I fought for last session is now a reality. If your business has a question or problem with a state agency, please call 1-844-4695512 or visit www.sos.oregon. gov/businessSOS for help. We expanded access to growth capital in the Entrepreneurial Development Loan Fund for job-creating small businesses (SB 1563). This money helps new enterprises set up or expand. By raising the amount of support that small busi-

COURTESY PHOTO

Rep. David Gomberg nesses can receive through this fund, we will create more opportunities in farming and natural resources, high tech, and tourism. We also modernized Oregon’s job training programs (SB 1566) to ensure the system is meeting workers’ and employers’ needs across the state. Working Hard for the Central Coast and Coast Range The Legislature made

key investments this session that will meet the needs of our community: • The Coastal Caucus worked with our counterparts in the U.S. Congress to secure $20 million for dredging coastal ports, including $2.9 million for Yaquina Bay and $380,000 for Depoe Bay. This work will support our maritime industries and help make sure those who work on the water come home safely. I

am proud to have been a part of this effort. • I championed HB 4148, which reduces the interest rate that our neighbors in the Senior Property Tax Deferral program pay on their deferred balance. This will make sure the state is not making money off the people this program is designed to protect financially. • Finally, as one of the few legislators who actually owns a cash register, I worked hard this session to support small business. I wrote and advanced a bill (HB 4067) that would have cut taxes on 7,800 small businesses in Oregon by an average of $900. That bill got bogged down in “Grand Bargain” politics, but I’m committed to helping people create jobs in our communities and plan to bring the proposal back next year. Thank you to everyone who called, emailed, or visited me in the Capitol this session. I can’t tell you how important it is to hear what you think. Always feel free to contact my office with questions, concerns, or ideas. Together we can build a stronger future for Oregon.

for a very long time. He wastes no time pandering to left or right wing political agenda’s. During his tenure he has been all business and does what he says he will do. How refreshing! Many of you will recall when

campaigning for the office some four years ago he promised to look into the festering VRD problem and try to find a solution that both sides could live with. He won by a wide margin. Thanks to his leadership, both sides in this contentious issue

have been heard and a plan is now before the City Council. Bravo Mayor! Lead On! Charles Rowe Lincoln City

On Faith: Finding the Pot of Gold HEARING THE HEARTBEAT By Rev. Kelli Westmark

On our day of sunshine, I decided to hike Drift Creek Falls and enjoy the fantastic day. Trying out my new camera, I stopped periodically to capture a leaf, a budding flower or the sunshine cascading through the tall trees. Arriving at the suspension bridge, I snapped dozens of pictures of the waterfall from various angles and then decided to walk further down the trail when I saw a rainbow next to the waterfall and jumped over a couple of logs to capture this moment. Rainbows are a reminder of God’s great and precious promises. The first rainbow appeared in Genesis 9, after Noah, his family and a lot of stinky animals had lived in the ark for a little over a year. God made a covenant to never destroy the entire Earth again by flood, which I have always been thankful for growing up on the Coast often surrounded by water. In the last book of the Bible, Revelation 4:3, a rainbow encircles the throne of God. All the colors in the spectrum, created by God, reminding us that God’s promises never fail. Pretty cool!

Yet, why did this matter, and how does it impact you and I? There are hundreds of promises in Scripture, many of them I cling to daily. One from Isaiah 58:6 says, “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?” God wants to set the captives free, that includes those caught up in sex trafficking, drug addictions, the abused, prostitutes, those trapped by pornography. These are real issues facing our city, real issues creating havoc on families. Jesus came to set the captives free. The church knows these are all symptoms of a greater issue. The real issue is a little three-letter word, that Romans 3:23 says we are all guilty of. I’m not better than you, nor you me. It’s the reason movies like Son of God make an impact, when we understand it was my sin that put Christ on the cross. And there is nothing I can do to earn my way to heaven, nothing I can do to fix the problem. Ephesians 2:8 says, “For it is by grace you

promise, “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.” God’s promises are worth far more than a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. They are eternal. The next time you see a rainbow, be reminded God’s thoughts toward you outnumber the grains of sand (Psalm 139:18) and the very hairs on your head are all numbered (Luke 12:7). John 1:12-13 says, “To those who receive Him, to those who believe on His name, He gave the right to become children of God, children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.” That means, no matter how messed up my family is, I am a child of God. The gift of Jesus Christ just might be the greatest promise of all.

Drift Creek Falls have been saved, through faith -- and this is not from yourselves, it is a gift of God.” A true gift isn’t something you pay for. It’s something that is freely given that needs to be received. When I receive God’s

grace, a few more of God’s promises become realities. The promises that God forgives completely, gives new life, clothes me in His righteousness, which is so amazing compared to my filthy rags. So many people

don’t think they are worthy to receive God’s gift of eternal life and salvation and most people will remain stuck feeling condemned for the rest of their lives. How sad, as that is a lie from the enemy. Romans 8:1-2 offers another

McMenamin’s, Taft High raise yearbook spirits DAVID GRAY Taft Eighth Grader

Taft High 7-12 Yearbook Scholarship program put on a 50/50 night at McMenamin’s Lighthouse Brewpub on March 11 to ensure every graduating senior would receive a free yearbook if they could not afford one. The 50/50 night at McMenamin’s was held for the first time last year, ensuring that everyone from the class of 2013 who asked for a yearbook got one. The good news is, that’s possible again this year. The event raised $1,613, 20 percent more than the 50/50 night last year. “I think the night was very successful,” Taft senior

Erin Petit said. “A lot of people were there. Almost all of the tables were full, and it looked like everyone was enjoying themselves.” Attendees said the event brings a tremendous feel of happiness to some Taft students, and not just the seniors who get the free yearbooks. “I think it’s a really good thing to do,” eighth-grader O’Malley Martin said. “It is nice to know that they’ll have a chance to get a yearbook.” Barton Howe, Taft High yearbook advisor and founder of the Yearbook Scholarship Program, said he is glad he’s finally been able to make sure every

senior leaves Taft with a high school momento. “Somebody’s senior year is a major thing in their life,” Howe said. “Graduation is a milestone, and there’s no better symbol of that year and that milestone than a yearbook. A lot of our students don’t have the money to afford one, but thanks to the people of Lincoln City and McMenamin’s, that doesn’t matter.”

Taft Elementary School: During summer break, new energy efficient windows will be installed along the west side of the building. To protect deteriorating brickwork and to create continuity of appearance between the old building and new classroom wing, new siding will be installed on the west side. Also, 21,000 square feet of new roofing will be installed, covering about one-third of the school. Low maintenance and hardy landscaping will be added. Taft High 7-12 School: Sixteen leaking windows will be replaced. The four football/soccer field lights have gone through their useful life; during spring break, they will be replaced, using a crane and concrete chainsaw to bring down the old lights and poles. The work is being performed by Musco Lighting, which supplied the field lights at the new Waldport High School. During the summer, the carpet in the hallway by the media center will be replaced with flooring.

“So we will save the nest and make every effort to get it on another pole and put it back up at the field as soon as possible.” Another improvement project at Taft High will include replacing 16 windows at the building. “The framing around the windows is actually separating,” he said. “It basically wasn’t a good design for the Oregon Coast. We will replace them with a much stronger window and frame.” The field lighting upgrade and window project are part of a number of bond-funded school improvement projects planned to take place at schools throughout the district – in Lincoln City, Toledo, Waldport and Newport – during the upcoming spring break and over the summer, when students and staff are out of school buildings. “There is still quite a bit of work left to accomplish with funding from the $63 million bond measure that voters approved in May 2011,” Belloni said. “We wrapped up our most visible projects, but we are plenty busy working on other jobs.” The two biggest projects scheduled over

flat roof will be replaced with a peaked roof. The 30,000-square-foot section of roof covers 14 classrooms, a computer lab and the school offices. Cost of the project is approximately $500,000. The project involves cutting out the old roof, building pony walls, building the roof, then sheeting and shingling the roof. “You have to have empty classrooms to do this,” Belloni said. “It makes a real mess.” Because of the tight schedule, as work crews finish one section of the new roof and move on, another work crew will immediately follow, installing new unit ventilators and digital controls in classrooms. Other work is planned in the north area of the school district during spring break and summer: Oceanlake Elementary School: This summer, the north hallway will be updated with a new ceiling and lights. This will improve the appearance of the school by hiding the many pipes and wires that have been added to the hallway ceilings through the years. If enough funds remain in the budget, two remaining restrooms will be renovated.

Sheriff’s Tips Recent events call for gun safety By Sheriff Dennis Dotson

Every year, we hear tragic stories about a youngster playing with a gun and accidentally shooting a friend or themselves. Sheriff Often Dennis Dotson times, these tragedies are deadly. 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 safely securing firearms is one that everyone should take seriously.

• 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.

• 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 frequently increases, not decreases, the danger to your family. The reason is that many gun owners are not proficient in handling their firearms under duress.

• 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.

• If you own firearms, carefully consider where to keep them. Closets, nightstands, drawers, on top of high cabinets, 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. Secure ammunition sepa-

They are already intrinsically motivated and excited to compete with others.” Taft also conducts an inhouse competition teachers judge, Westbrook said. “I’s a great way for students to try something new and try to beat out the competition,” she said.

There’s no limit.” Under instruction from Westbrook, the club participates statewide in competition designed to get their competitive juices flowing. The state’s ProStart competition prepares students by communicating and working with a team, practicing efficient time management and being creative in dish preparation.

I’m basically here to help, kind of like a coach.” Junior Joyce Campbell is among those who is taking the training seriously but isn’t sure a career in the field is in the oven. “The others want their lives to be about culinary. That’s what they’re going to do,” she said. “Don’t get me wrong. I love cooking, absolutely adore it, but, ultimately, I want to become a psychologist. I will always still have this as a side passion.” Whether serious or not, at the least, the Culinary Club can help students learn to cook for themselves. For others, participation lights the flame on their burner. “It helps tremendously because they have that confidence going into culinary school,” Westbrook said. “We’re using the same techniques, the same equipment as if they were out there.”

ger on the roadways. Data from the Newport Police Department show drivers who use hand-held devices are four times more likely to get into crashes serious enough to injure themselves. Text messaging creates a crash risk 23 times higher than driving while not distracted. In 2012, national data shows 3,328 people were killed and an estimated 421,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver.

During spring break 2013, Newport Police conducted a two-week traffic safety campaign that focused on distracted driving. During that enforcement, officers issued 172 traffic citations – 83 were for using a handheld mobile communication device. While many might believe that distracted driving refers specifically to the use of cell phones, Malloy said it is any activity that could divert a person’s attention from the primary task of driving. “All distractions endanger driver, passenger and

bystander safety,” he said. He said distractions include texting or talking on a cell phone or Smartphone, eating and drinking, talking to passengers, grooming, reading maps, using a navigation system, watching a video, adjusting a radio, lighting a cigarette or holding a pet. Malloy said fines for traffic violations other than illegal use of a cell phone could range from $110 to $435 per violation.

“Ultimately, the first person available to save you is you, and you can save yourself by playing wisely,” he said. Kusz encourages parents to make beach safety a family affair. “It would be a good idea for parents to take a moment to talk to their children before they get to the beach about safety,” he said. “Make them aware of the sneaker waves, rip currents and the danger of playing on beach logs. That gets the whole family to think about safety.” Lincoln City Police and Oregon State Police troopers are warning motorists about the dangers of driving onto the beach. “We frequently see vehicles get caught in the surf,” Sgt. Jeffery Winn, with Lincoln City Police, said. “Especially at the 15th Street entrance. It is a popular place for drivers to park on the beach.” Signs are posted on the beach at Lincoln City alerting drivers not to go beyond the 15th Street beach access for safety reasons. But Winn said the signs are often ignored. “When we witness motorists driving beyond those signs, we will issue a citation for that,” he said. The citations range from $110 to $435.

Kusz said the Oregon Coast has numerous and dangerous rip currents and sneaker waves that can quickly knock a person down and pull them from shore. “This year, our advice is keep your children out of the ocean,” Kusz said. “The ocean is not a swimming pool. We discourage even wading in the ocean. Lincoln City offers a pool at the Community Center and a lake for swimming. The ocean is not a safe place for children or even the best adult swimmers.” NLFR crews will distribute information about the ocean dangers at the D River Wayside and at the Roads End State park over the next few months to help educate beachgoers. Kusz said he hopes the direct contact with visitors will raise awareness. “There are warnings posted by State Parks at the waysides about the ocean dangers,” Kusz said. “But how many times do you see people just walk on the beach and not pay any attention to the warning signs that are posted? Many people are on vacation. They don’t think about basic safety.” Lifeguards do not moni-

tor Lincoln City beaches. Last summer, Kusz visited Seaside, a North Coast city that operates a lifeguard program, to see if such a safety effort could be established in Lincoln City. “We have so much beach that lifeguards would not be practical here because of line of sight,” he said. “The area within our district is over five miles of beach. The lifeguards would give people a false sense of security. We would be contradicting ourselves.” Chris Havel, Oregon State Parks Department spokesman, said printed materials, web pages, on-site signs, interpretive programs and beach rangers are used by the department to expose people to the kind of information that can help them make good decisions when visiting the beaches “Some of these incidents are truly accidents, and there isn’t much to be done,” he said.” Some things, though, are within your control if you exercise good judgment. The beach is a natural place, quite wild in many locations. When you enter a wild place, you have to bring your good common sense with you.” Havel said the department makes the signs simple with a clear message: Stay off the rocks, know the tides, be a wary swimmer.

Local surfers catch waves with world-class talent George DeSoto is a 38-year-old Newport resident who runs a lawn service business and has been stoked about surfing for more than 20 years. “It makes me feel alive,” he said. “Basically, I feel closer to God without actually dying.” With some of the biggest and most treacherous waves crashing the Pacific Ocean beaches along the Oregon seashore, local surfers have ample opportunity to “hang 10,” but last week’s Dive ‘N Surf Oregon Pro competition at Nelscott Reef provided a forum for several to display their talents with the best. Not to mention that the daylong competition was shown live on webcast and marked only the second time surfing has been shown live on television (for results, go to divensurforegonpro.com). “It’s an opportunity to push your limits, to learn more and expand your skill level by surfing with some of the best surfers in the world,” 42-year-old Keith Galbraith, a surfer for two decades who runs the local TigerSharks Surf

- George DeSoto, local surfer Club, said. “When you have a contest, you want to have an opportunity to surf your home break.” Jeremy Rasmussen, who owns a property management and real-estate company in Lincoln City, knows the feeling. He grew up in the surfing mecca of Maui and started body surfing as a toddler. Clearly mesmerized by the sport, Rasmussen explains his fascination for surfing: “It’s the ultimate sport. I’ve done a lot of sports in life, but nothing compares to the spontaneous reaction that occurs when you’re surfing. It’s kind of a mindless reaction. Things are very much in the moment. You’re working with an unknown, whereas a lot of other platforms of sports

you’re working with a fixed known. It doesn’t move a lot. “In snowboarding, skating – even football or baseball, whatever – the canvas is known and it’s fixed, whereas the surfing canvas is unclear and constantly changing and moving, so you’re very much in the moment, as if trying to almost prophetically predict what is going to happen.” Tony Perez, a longtime local resident who also has been surfing for nearly 20 years since moving to Lincoln City at age 13, was far less descriptive, but straight to the point. “It’s been a huge passion of mine ever since the get-go,” he said. “I just love the water and, especially, surfing solid waves of consequence like we do here in our own backyard.”

Lincoln City swamps opposition

JIM FOSSUM jfossum@countrymedia.net

Forty-five local swimmers took turns last weekend occupying the Lincoln City Community Center pool and emerged hoisting a nice big plaque. The Lincoln City Swim Club won the Valley Coast Swim League Invitational on Sunday behind victories from Mason Garding, Natalie Gates and Sam and Lizeth Cortes. “With such a large group, we tried more kids out on new events like breaststroke and fly and had more disqualifications than usual, but some finally got it and were able to swim new events,” LCSC coach Lissa Parker said. “Some swimmers have been sick, so they added time, but almost everyone had a fantastic meet.” Some also participated in youth basketball in the

adjacent gym each day of the two-day event that featured more than 150 swimmers. LCSC won the meet with 3,469 points, followed by Emerald Aquatics, 2,348; River Road Swim Club, 1,745; Newport, 1,293; Willamalane, 1,164; Gold Coast, 1,129; and Cottage Grove, 539. “Of our 45 swimmers, we had several that gained ‘B’ times, some for the first time,” Parker said. Several beginners, such as Lainey Hertz, Gavin Ceballos and Lesley Lagunes, competed in their first meet, she said. Meanwhile, 9-year-old Sam Cortes won six events for LCSC, while, Gates, 8, won four 25-meter races in all four strokes -– free, breast, back and butterfly –and also claimed the 50-meter free. Cortes won the 50-meter sprint events in each stroke, the 100-meter

freestyle and the 100-meter individual medley. Cortes’ 15-year-old sister, Lizeth, won the 100-meter backstroke, and Mason Garding, 11, the 50-meter fly. Mason Garding, Justin Delfin, Addie Gates, Evan Halferty, Sammi Halferty, Hunter Lunstedt, Dylan Mickelson, Cristofer Ochoa, Kira Sciarrotta and Jose Segura all posted runner-up finishes. Lincoln City also compiled several points in the relays. “We had a workout for parents, too, hosting the meet and making sure everything ran smoothly [under meet director Charlie Lunstedt and assistant coaching from Maria Cortes, Melissa Arntt and Destiny Zook],” Parker said. “We have a good group of volunteers, but it is still a lot of work. All in all, it was a big success.”

ith Taft High senior Henry Lahti’s decision to walk into a batter’s box rather than onto a tee box, the Taft High golf team might feel like it has fewer clubs in its bag as it prepares for the 2014 season. Lahti, the team’s leading player as a junior a year ago, is playing infield for the Tigers this year, which means some lower scoring will be needed from their three returning players - senior Keaton Fisher and sophomores Tyler Fisher and Evan Stanfill. The trio walked considerable miles helping lead the Tigers to the state tournament last year. “How these three progress through the season will determine how successful we will be, “ Taft coach and Salishan Golf Resort pro Mark Swift said. “Tyler and Evan ew to the both should grow as players, and Keaton will work to be more consistent from Taft High event to event.” baseball team this Fisher, who battled Lahti for the top playing spot last season, is fairly seseason, coach Dustin cure at No. 1 and hopes work on his short game will bring further improveHankins might feel like a ment. babysitter of sorts for awhile as his “That’s the part of my game that I’ve had the most trouble with,” he team learns to walk before it can run. said. “It’s what I need to work most on to keep the scoring down.” At least the kids on his watch are In addition, Taft welcomes several newcomers who are expected to well-behaved. make an impact, and one who could have something to say about the “Our biggest weakness will be that we Tigers’ success in two sports. are so young,” Hankins said. “At the same Junior Rylan Fisher, who is pitching and playing outfield on the time, our strength is that we are willing to learn baseball team, could make a run this season if he can successfully and adjust.” manage to swing both sticks at the same time, Swift said The Tigers’ success will largely be dictated by Zander King, Connor Anderson, Adam Plummer and Daniel the performance of three players, including the Taft Urdela all played last season and also could make an impact at golf team’s former No. 1 player, Henry Lahti, who has the varsity level as the season wears on, he said. bypassed his senior season on the links to take a spot “Our strength is that we have many returning players with on the diamond as a middle infielder. some experience, and the team, overall, is young,” Swift said.

Our biggest weakness isn’t going to be in our playing ability, but in our lack of experience.” While providing needed experience, Steere said his goals are not only helping Taft win but trying to earn a college scholarship. To do that, he aspires to lift his batting average to above or around .350 and his fastball to over 85 mph. “To get there, I’m going to just have to work hard during year ago, Taft High girls golf coach Heather Hatton drills and absorb everything my coaches tell me,” he said. had not one, but two serious and talented senior Another key component, Hankins said, will be junior players named Jessie to lead her team into the season.

Rounding out the varsity squad will be juniors Mikayla Blackstocks and Sarahi Herver-Hernandez, who has moved over to golf from track. “My returners will provide experience, but it’s the temperament of our team that will be our strength,” Hatton said. “We have a group of athletes that have good work ethics and are focused on being good student-athletes.” Among the newcomers, Wright’s Sophomore game has Hatton most enthused.

Growing squad gives Taft hope for future A

t first glance, you’d think much of the student body stood huddling around Taft High track and field coach Tim Dressler during preseason practice last week at Voris Field. More than 50 athletes have tried out this season, a factor not lost on Dressler or the rest of the Oregon West Conference entering the 2014 season, It could be a sign of things to come. “I am a true believer that there is strength in numbers,” he said. While the Tigers have lost several quality performers and leaders to graduation, Dressler said he recognizes the future is bright. “Last year, we graduated a lot of talented Drew Lee practices hurdling last week at Voris Field. and experienced seniors,” he said. “They were strong leaders and inspired everyone to push themselves to new limits. Although this team is bigger, it is also young.” Among those leading the way will be sophomore hurdler Eva Barten. a true competitor and natural leader, in her coach’s estimation. “She is determined and focused,” he said.

Kelsey Wilkinson, an all-league outfielder as a freshman, is the team’s only sophomore. Several Tigers who will take the field when Oregon West play opens April 8 at home against Stayton have played together since youth league when they were 10. Success in softball starts with pitching and Taft is loaded, with not just the coach’s right-handed daughter, ace Emily Broderick, an all-league performer last season, but lefthanded junior fireballer Katie McCardell. Like Broderick, McCardell is an all-league player who has started since her freshman season. “Both girls have worked hard in the offseason on their pitching, so we should be strong in that area,” Broderick said. Taft senior Both players also give Taft steady support in the infield when not in the circle. The dirt is also stocked with talent, Ayla Reed starting behind the plate with senior all-conference catcher Keitra Mason. “We are confident that our infield will be solid simply because of their experience,” Broderick said. A slight change is expected in the middle infield with junior all-conference second baseman Hannah Ray moving to short and junior starting shortstop BillyAnn Stempel shifting to first. While there might be some maneuvering, senior fouryear starter Ayla Reed will man third base and be backed up by senior Sierra Picard, another four-year participant and dependable utility player. Taft expects to be quick off the bat and speedy to the ball in the outfield, where Wilkinson brings some promising credentials. “I’d be very surprised if young ‘Pee Wee’ doesn’t catch a few eyes this season,” Broderick said. “Without a doubt, she will make an impact on Oregon softball for the next few years.” In addition to Wilkinson’s range in center, senior Taylor Adams gives the Tigers additional speed. Junior Charli Haft is likely to fill the final outfield spot. Haft, Picard and Payne will play valuable roles on both offense and defense, he said. “Our offense is looking good and we are working out the long, winter cobwebs,” he said. “We are fundamentally solid from top to bottom on offense. I can honestly say that when these girls are on, watching them hit is truly impressive.” With that, Broderick understands that five years of work is about to end and likely be measured by this team’s success. “We are again taking things one pitch at a time, one game at a time, leaning on our fundamentals and our teamwork,” he said. “If we do those things, the scoreboard with take care of itself.”

The festival draws many from all over Oregon, as well as Washington and Idaho, and we meet multi-generational groups participating together.

Earth Abides By Ken McCormack

The Pisaster Disaster I’m looking at a picture of a Northwest starfish called Pisaster. It’s beautiful — orange and purple, with five arms. It sometimes gets stranded on our beaches. This one is dying of “sea star wasting disease,” cause unknown. It has partly turned to mush and one arm is missing. The Pisaster is a top predator. It feeds on shellfish, especially mussels. But nothing feeds on it. We know the big fish eat the little fish. Small organisms keep the food chain going. But top predators are merely competition. We kill them for food and protection. Or just for fun. Romans slaughtered elephants, hippos, bears, leopards and lions by the hundreds of thousands to amuse the crowd. Americans used to get a big kick out of gunning down eagles from airplanes, and they carpeted Appalachia with dead hawks. No reason to worry about a few starfish! Their favorite food is mussels. Some of you might like mussels, but they are so tough that most predators can’t even pry them open. Pisasters though have powerful arms, which reach up to 18 inches. Imagine, an “Invasion of the Giant Pisasters!” They come creeping out of the depths. Essentially blind, they locate by smell and feel. They crawl over a mussel, stand it up, circle around it, pry it open and shoot stomach juice straight into the gap. As the mussel clings for dear life, it begins to weaken. The Pisaster then pushes its entire stomach out through its mouth into the shell. It enjoys a mussel on the rocks. A couple of days later, it moseys off with a full belly. In the 1960s, Robert T. Paine, at the University of Washington, took all the sea stars out of a tide pool just to see if they make a difference. To everyone’s surprise, they do. Pretty soon, the mussels overran the other species and a stark monoculture remained. Paine raised a hotly debated question. Does the loss of a predator have anything to do with the extinction of thousands of species? Another local predator is the sea otter. It’s hard to imagine these cute little characters as monsters from the lower depths. You see them floating around on their backs munching on sea urchins like the entire world was their oyster. But because of their valuable pelts, they were hunted to near extinction. That makes them an easy case study. Sea otters love to eat sea urchins that hang out in kelp forests. Scientists noticed that where otters remain, or have made a comeback, forests of kelp keep a rich diversity of life — fish, mollusks and seabirds. These then attract harbor seals. Eagles come to feed on seal and otter pups. And so the swirl of life grows. However, on reefs where the otter has not recovered, 75 percent of the species are gone. The seafloor is a pink pavement of coralline algae, pocked with blobs of enormous sea urchins. To make things even more interesting, as whales disappear, Orcas begin to feed on sea otters — again threatening the kelp environment. It appears the life energy of kelp forests, as with tide pools, comes from the top down. Without whales, starfish and sea otters, the little creatures die off. You can watch these animals at the Aquarium in Newport — prey, kelp, sea urchins and otters. They are so fascinating. And consider: 90 percent of the ocean’s top predators are now gone. Therein lies a real monster story. Ken McCormack is a Neskowin resident and can be reached at kenmcc@centurylink.net.

Retro fashion show to benefit CASA Phagans’ Cosmetology College will be the site Friday, March 21, for a retro fashion show to benefit the Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children (CASA) of Lincoln County. CASA works to advocate for children in foster care who have been abused or neglected. The mission is to speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children in court and to promote and support quality volunteer representation for children, providing each child a safe, permanent, nurturing home. Set for 6:30 p.m. at 158 E. Olive St., in Newport, the benefit fashion show will feature models fitted and made up head to toe with looks dating as far back as the 1920s. “We will have 20 models and we’re going to design a retro look for them from the 1920s through

the 1990s,” Mandy Venning of Phagans’ said. “Some of these students are so young, the 1990s is retro to them.” A silent auction will be held to sell items donated from businesses throughout the county. Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the door.

The annual gray whale migration north runs March 22-29, just in time for Whale Watching Week. The numbers of gray whales migrating north usually peak during the week. Nearly 160 gray whales pass along the Coast each day and whale watchers might see their 12-foot blow — or spout — from shore. Oregon State Park rangers and volunteers will be at Whale Watching Center in Depoe Bay, just off Highway 101, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

Irby said they also collect a variety of stuff that might surprise you. “We have found stoves, refrigerators, toilet seats, coolers with canned food from years ago still inside, and tons of flip-flops,” she said. SOLV volunteers found items washing ashore in Oregon following the Japanese tsunami in 2011. “From 2011 to 2013, we did see a lot of tsunami debris like Styrofoam, building materials, soccer balls, pieces of boats and even a large dock,” Irby said. “But the amount of tsunami debris has definitely decreased over the past several months.” The debris collected Saturday will be picked up by various garbage haulers and taken to landfills, but some of the debris will be recycled. A Bandon-based group is using the debris to make

Volunteers taking part in the cleanup will be provided gloves and bags from SOLV at the following regional starting points:

• D River Wayside • Roads End State Park S.W. 51st St. Taft • Chinook Winds Casino Resort in Lincoln City (The casino will offer free breakfast for volunteers at 9:30 a.m.) • Neskowin Trading Company • Wi-Ne-Ma Wayside • Pelican Pub at Pacific City • Sand Lake • Gleneden Beach • Otter Rock/Devils Bunch Bowl • Beverly Beach State Park • Newport

Illusions From page B1

The evening performance series will open Tuesday, March 26, with Henrik Bothe. Born in Denmark, Bothe can tell jokes in four languages and has performed in all 50 states and 22 countries. One of the favorites from the 2012 festival, Heather Pearl, will perform on the Center stage on Wednesday, March 27. Pearl has

been entertaining audiences for the past 15 years. She has trained in physical theater and clown at Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theatre and at the San Francisco School of Circus Arts. Joe Black, a magician and mentalist from Seattle and one of the stars from last year’s festival, will be the featured evening performer on Thursday, March 28. Black was awarded the “Rising Star Award” two years in a row, and was a

televised finalist on “America’s Got Talent!” On Friday, March 29, the featured illusionist will be Hart Keene, a veteran of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent!” Keene has been performing his unique blend of magic and comedy in the Northwest for more than 12 years. The week will end Saturday, March 30, with an evening show with Danny Roberson, aka “Dan the Magic Man.” He has been

performing magic since he was 12. Roberson makes his own props, and can often be seen in Lincoln City disguised as a clown, a pirate or a stage manager.
