he question of when to start Christmas shopping is a topic of long-running debate, with extremes at both ends of the spectrum. Some people, the type that not only remember people’s birthdays but also manage to get a card in the mail on time, like to start early and have everything bought, wrapped and stowed away in a meticulously labeled tote by the end of October.

Others, myself included, are apt to leave it to the very last minute. Members of this unfortunate sect are often to be found wandering around gas stations on Christmas Eve with a glazed look on their faces, searching for the poshest-looking box of chocolates in the hope that it might pass muster if adorned with a suitably festive bow. Though people’s opinions will always dier on when it is Patrick Alexander best to start, one glance at this week’s calendar shows without Editor a shadow of a doubt that there is only one choice for folks who want to get all their Christmas shopping done in a single day — Saturday Dec. 7. That single day sees 17 holiday bazaars open for business from Manzanita to Yachats, oering pretty much every gift that you are guaranteed not to ďŹ nd in the Black Friday sales. As our handy list on page 19 shows, there is a bazaar to meet every need. Serious chocaholic? Newport’s Coastal Craft Chocolate Coee Christmas Classic is the event for you. Want to give a gift that won’t end up cluttering a closet? Try the Alternative Gift Market in Manzanita, where you can donate to local and worldwide charities in the name of your chosen giftee. As I survey Saturday’s 17 events, separated by just 119 short miles, I can’t help but wonder if there is a special kind of bazaar aďŹ cionado who makes it their mission to visit each and every one throughout the course of the day. Such a person would be easy to spot as they raced along Highway 101, over-caeinated, awash with hot cider and bearing the crumbs of multiple cookies on their new woolly sweater, they would struggle to maintain their lane as the pile of crocheted blankets and Afghans encroached on to the dashboard. No, Dec. 7 is too big a day for any one person to see it all. So relax, grab a cookie and stroll the tables at your local bazaar — and save yourself that last-minute trip to the gas station.

in concert Giving winter a warm welcome The musical talents of Newport’s youth will be on display on Thursday, Dec. 12, when Newport High School’s music department presents its Winter Concert. The program will include musical selections such as “Sleigh Ride,â€? “Nutcracker,â€? and “Ocean Ridge Rhapsodyâ€? by the concert band; tunes from the swing era by the jazz band; and contemporary songs from the choir. The choir and intermediate band will play ďŹ rst and, after a 20-minute intermission, the jazz band and concert band will ďŹ nish the concert. The Newport High School Band Boosters will be holding a rae in the lobby. Proceeds will go towards travel for the band in 2014. The concert will run from 7 to 9 pm at the Newport Performing Arts Center, 777 W. Olive Street.

The Return of the Native Newport will welcome one of its own this weekend, when mezzo-soprano Erica Brookhyser takes to the stage for a pair of performances presented by the Newport Symphony Orchestra. “Rapture on the Lonely Shore,â€? will see the Newport native perform works by Schumann, Brahms, Elgar and others, including several pieces that take their inspiration from the ocean. Brookhyser was born and raised in Newport, where her family still resides. She grew up singing and acting at the Newport Performing Arts Center, where she ďŹ rst discovered her love of music. As an adult, Brookhyser has performed in Germany with the Staatstheater Darmstadt opera company, where she has been the principal mezzo soloist since 2010, beginning with a breakout performance of the title role in Bizet’s opera “Carmen.â€? Her opera credits also include principal roles at the Boston Lyric Opera, the New England Conservatory and the Los

Angeles Opera, where she was a protĂŠgĂŠ of Placido Domingo. She is currently performing in “Falsta â€? with the Los Angeles Opera. Brookhyser has received praise for her “exquisite musicalityâ€? from the Boston Globe and her “vivid, rich voiceâ€? from Opera News. This weekend is the second time Brookhyser has appeared with the Newport Symphony Orchestra, but her ďŹ rst full recital at the performing arts center. In 2009, she sang as a special guest at the orchestra’s annual free Fourth of July concert. Joined by Georgian pianist Nino Sanikadze, Brookhyser will continue the orchestra’s tradition of highlighting the great classical masterworks that take the subject of the sea as their inspiration or theme. The Saturday, Dec. 7, performance is scheduled for at 7:30 pm at the Newport Performing Arts Center, 777 W. Olive Street. The Sunday, Dec. 8, matinĂŠe will begin at 2 pm. Tickets, priced at $34 and

Guests will also be invited to enter the garden club rae, with a handmade wooden garden bench serving as the grand prize. The members also provide free homemade cookies and hot cider. The sale is at the clubhouse, a yellow building just o Highway 101, next door to the Seal Rock Fire Department. For more information, contact Greg Holland at gregholland97394@gmail.com.

When it comes to putting on a Christmas bazaar, the Yachats Ladies Club knows what it’s doing. The longest continually running women’s service club in Lincoln County is staging its Annual Christmas Bazaar this weekend for the 86th time. The clubhouse will be decked out in cheery holiday ďŹ nery, with a huge variety of handmade goods on oer, ranging from knitted items to jewelry and journals to holiday dĂŠcor. A large selection of edible goods will also be for sale, including cranberry upside down cakes, fudge, baked goods and candy. Mystery gifts — small, inexpensive prewrapped surprises — will be for sale, making great stocking stuers. Guests can also browse the White Elephant Table where treasures of all types await discovery; or spend a dollar for

a rae ticket and the chance to win the Horn of Plenty Food Basket. Themed Gifts-On-The-Go Baskets will also be available, making ideal gifts for adults and children. Guests can also spread some cheer by buying gift baskets for the children residing at My Sisters’ Place, Lincoln County’s domestic abuse shelter. The club also creates special totes with towels and bath products that guests can buy for delivery to the women at the shelter. On Saturday only, lunch will be served from 11 am to 2 pm — a hearty turkey chili or white bean chili served with homemade corn muďŹƒns. Saturday is also the last chance of the year to try the famous Yachats Ladies Club pie, which will be served all day starting at 10 am. To-go boxes are available so you can

eat some and take some home for later. Coee and other beverages will also be available. Throughout the weekend, bazaar guests will get the chance to view the queen size, lilac-themed quilt that the Yachats Ladies Club is raing o to raise money for its scholarship fund. Tickets, $1 each or six for $5, will be sold throughout the weekend with the drawing happening at the clubhouse at 2 pm on Sunday.

Help launch

THE SQUID

OPEN Wed-Mon 9:00am–5:00pm 33920 Hwy. 101 S. in Cloverdale

Between Cloverdale & Hebo

If the idea of a squid launching conjures images of an ungainly mess of tentacles flying through the air accompanied by a panicked release of ink, think again. The launch of the newly re-designed North Coast Squid literary magazine will be a dignified affair, taking place at The Hoffman Center in Manzanita on Saturday, Dec. 7. Co-ordinated by the Manzanita Writer’s Series, the Squid showcases work by writers and artists who live on the north coast or have a strong connection to the area. Eighty-five writers and artists submitted nearly 200 works for consideration for this, the magazine’s third edition, revamped thanks to a grant from the Tillamook County Cultural Coalition. Submissions were juried by authors outside

the community. Brian Doyle, author of “Mink River” and editor of Portland Magazine at the University of Portland, judged fiction. Karen Karbo, author famous for her Kick Ass Women series, the latest of which is “Julia Child Rules,” judged nonfiction. Stephanie Lenox, author of “Congress of Strange People” and creative writing teacher at Willamette University, judged poetry. The release event will feature selected author readings from the Squid, as well as a gallery showing of some of the photography and art published in the magazine. There will be refreshments, including cake, and a drawing for door prizes at the end of the evening. The party will start at 7 pm at the center, 594 Laneda Avenue. Admission is free.

The North Coast Squid will be available for purchase at the event, as well as at every Manzanita Writers’ Series event throughout 2014. A number of retail outlets along the coast will also carry it. Proceeds from the $5 cover price will go to produce future editions of the magazine. For more information, go to hoffmanblog.org.

A bid to boost Oceanlake

assembling big gift baskets for the auction, with themes like “Game Night” and “Cooking.” The auction runs from 4 to 6 pm at the center, 540 NE Hwy. 101. Admission is free. Funds raised from the auction go to support Oceanlake Parent Group projects. Recent projects have included the Under the Sea Mural in the multi-purpose room, interactive white boards in the classrooms, and a variety of field trips. OPG also offers every teacher $125 for supplementary classroom materials — things that most teachers pay for out of their own pocket. The biggest project on this year’s agenda is the installation of the curtain on the stage of the new gym. To donate or provide other assistance, contact OPG President Tamara Merry at 541-992-3179.

A gift that keeps on digging

To obtain a schedule, more information, or a registration form, drop by the OSU Extension Service, 2204 Fourth

Story & photos by Patrick Alexander Oregon Coast TODAY

One of the main attractions of Fathoms Restaurant & Bar is getting to see the shifting seasons from an unparalleled viewpoint — perched atop the Inn at Spanish Head, 10 stories above the Pacific Ocean. And diners are getting to see the changing of the seasons reflected on their plate as well as through the wraparound windows, with the restaurant bringing in a new menu to spice up the winter months. “Rather than going smaller in the winter time like so many places do every year, we’ve actually added dishes,” said Manager Lisa White. White said Chef Ken Martin and his team have been playing around with new recipes since summer, trying them out as specials and noting which ones did well. One of the areas that has seen the most change is the small plates section, which allows people to maximize their taste sensations by ordering a few dishes to share with friends for dinner. New additions include a house-smoked wild salmon served with lemon caper cream cheese; a bruschetta that pairs tomato and garlic with baby mozzarella and manchego cheeses; and a seafood risotto, containing sea scallop, lobster and Dungeness crab, all poached in butter. For the entrées, Martin and his team continued the Mediterranean theme by changing up the preparations for the restaurant’s range of fresh seafood — starting with the grilled wild Pacific salmon, offered in a choice of tarragon butter sauce or mustard-horseradish vinaigrette. The seared sea scallops come with pancetta, stewed leeks and tomatoes in a chardonnay-cream sauce while the pan-roasted cod is topped with feta cheese, olives, sun dried tomatoes and pistachios.

The turkey BLT

On the specialties side, new dishes include a seafood cannelloni that combines Dungeness crab, jumbo prawns, wild Pacific salmon, scallops and Oregon pink shrimp in a dill cream sauce. Meanwhile, the Coastal Seafood Macn-Cheese offers classic comfort food with a coastal twist, incorporating Dungeness crab and Oregon pink shrimp into the mix with a three-cheese sauce. And, on the subject of comfort food, Fathoms’ fish and chips, previously offered only as a request item in the bar, has fought its way on to the regular restaurant menu, where it will help diners chase away the winter blues as they admire the view. While it specializes in seafood, Fathoms also offers a variety of meat options, from USDA Choice and Prime steaks to a chicken breast stuffed with boursin and manchego cheeses, roasted garlic and arugula. On Fridays and Saturdays, the restaurant offers slow-roasted prime rib served with horseradish sauce and au jus. If the sheer range of offerings leaves you bewildered, don’t panic. Regular Fathoms diner Mike Forrest, familiar to many from his job at Price N’ Pride, is quick to reassure people that there are no bad choices on the menu. “I’ve been coming here since 1989 and I’ve never had anything that wasn’t wonderful,” he said, adding that his only confusion is why the restaurant is not booked solid every night. White said Fathoms, long a popular destination for visitors to Lincoln City, is gaining popularity among locals, especially since the recent time change caused the early bird dinner, offered from 4 to 5:30 pm, to line up perfectly with prime sunset viewing time. The restaurant’s dedication to giving guests a warm welcome extends all the way to the front door, where a pair of tuxedo-patterned cats are often on hand to greet diners as they arrive. White said the restaurant offers a quiet atmosphere but still welcomes families, many of whom are attracted to the hotel because its ground floor offers direct access to the beach. That connection with the beach is something White stresses to guests, often urging them to follow their lunch with a stroll on the sands. And that elevator runs both ways, with folks walking the beach welcome to stop by for some cloud-level refreshment during daylight hours.

The linguine seafood medley ... and what a view

ƛȶɀȷɁɂȻȯɁΎȰɃˎȳɂ Fathoms will be hosting a Christmas buffet from noon to 7 pm on Wednesday, Dec. 25, offering everything from prime rib and leg of lamb to roasted salmon and Alaskan cod cakes with range of side orders and desserts. $34.95 for adults; $14.95 for children 10 and under; and free for under 5.

“They can come up to the 10th floor, warm up in the winter or cool down in the summer,” White said. “I wanted to put a banner down there saying ‘Are you thirsty?’” The Fathoms bar offers views every bit as stunning as the restaurant, with two-seater tables lined up along the window, providing the perfect place for a quiet chat, a romantic moment or storm watching with a cocktail. But for all the majesty of Fathoms’ ocean views, White confesses that she often sees guests’ eyes wandering away from the windows to something else entirely — the dessert cabinet that sits in pride of place between the restaurant and the bar. “I call that prioritizing,” she said. “Now they’ve just decided they are not going to fill up on dinner because they are saving room for that triple chocolate torte.” Fathoms Restaurant and Bar is located at 4009 SW Hwy. 101 in Lincoln City and is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For details and reservations, call 541-994-1601 or 800-452-8127. To book lodging reservations or learn more about the hotel, go to www.spanishhead.com.

BLING in the

HOLIDAY SEASON Deck the decks at Newport’s 20th annual Lighted Boat Parade

N

By Nancy Steinberg For the TODAY

ewport is gearing up for the most beautiful, festive and fun traffic jam of the year. The annual Lighted Boat Parade will bring brilliantly festooned boats of all shapes and sizes to Yaquina Bay from 5 pm to 6:30 pm on Saturday, Dec. 7. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the cherished tradition. Originally conceived as a way to drum up both holiday spirit and business for the Bay

front, the Lighted Boat Parade has become much more — the unofficial start to the holiday season in Newport as well as a point of pride and a much-anticipated party for many local mariners. Stephanie Brown, member of the Yaquina Bay Yacht Club and one of the event’s organizers, expects there to be at least 12 boats and possibly as many as 20 this year, including two of the smaller NOAA vessels from their home port in the bay.

“Because this is the 20th anniversary of the event, we wanted to have a theme that would allow a big and awesome show,” Brown said. Mission accomplished: Brown is hoping that the theme, “The Magic of the Music,” will encourage very creative entries depicting favorite songs or including live performances. While most boat owners are mum about their parade plans, saving their light schemes for the big reveal at the parade itself, Brown is willing to hint that she and her husband, Ken, will have musicians on board their 29foot sailboat — and possibly an amplifier. No word about smoke machines and disco balls — we’ll have to wait to see on Saturday. If previous years are any guide, the Browns’ boat will be accompanied by a wide range of other types of vessels, from kayaks to fishing boats to Coast Guard vessels to Marine Discovery Tours’ boat, the Discovery. The Island Girl, a commercial fishing boat, has just confirmed their entry into the parade, and rumors abound about NOAA vessels. “We love having the fishing fleet,” Brown said. “They have generators on board so that makes it easier for them [to put together elaborate displays]” As the sun sets, the lineup of vessels makes a loop around the bay, usually led by a Coast Guard boat. They parade from the Coast Guard Station to the Embarcadero resort, their thousands of lights shining brighter and brighter as the sun goes down. The skippers who participate all bring their A games, as the parade is also a competition and prizes — and pride — are at stake. A panel of special guest judges, cozy and warm in their headquarters in the Anchor Pier Lodgings, evaluates the boats on the basis of their adherence to the theme, their originality and the workmanship of their display. They choose a grand prize winner,

who is awarded a hunting rifle valued at $500 courtesy of Oregon Coast Bank, and runners-up who receive other prizes donated by local businesses. Spectators can take in the show by land or by sea. Some of the best places to watch the parade are on the piers on the Bayfront (Abby Street Pier, Bay Street Pier), the crabbing pier by the Rogue Brewery in South Beach, or from a waterfront restaurant like Saffron Salmon or Port Dock One, if you can snag a reservation. Or you can get closer to the action by reserving a spot on a tour boat. Marine Discovery Tours’ vessel, Discovery, will not only be part of the parade, they will also take passengers, and they serve as the central clearinghouse for ticket sales for other tour boats as well. Tickets are $35 for adults and $15 for kids age 4-12. Kids under 4 ride free. All the tour boats will offer complimentary cookies and cocoa, courtesy of the parade’s sponsors. Even Santa wouldn’t miss the Lighted Boat Parade: he will be available for professional photos at Newport Bay Candle Co., 424 SW Bay Blvd. from 4 to 7 pm that evening (packages are just $10). Proceeds from the event, including vessel entry fees and passenger ticket sales, all support CAN Cancer, a charity that provides assistance in paying nonmedical expenses for central coast residents fighting cancer. Every dollar raised by CAN Cancer benefits the local community. The event raised $3,000 last year, and organizers hope to match or exceed that total this year. “Passengers can get a front row seat for the parade, enjoy the show, and know they are helping a good cause,” Brown said. To reserve tour boat tickets, call Marine Discovery Tours at 541-265-6200 or 800903-BOAT. The parade proceeds rain or shine.

Wake up, then go-go

Lincoln City can be a tough crowd. For a small town, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot going on and sometimes, even the lure of exquisitely decorated Christmas trees and gourmet cuisine isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to get people out of the house. Fortunately, the organizers of The Song of the Angels Holiday Ball are one step ahead and have added an extra reason to attend this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s dance hits from Portland band Rendezvous. The band will provide the soundtrack to the Saturday, Dec. 7, gala, which is the main fund-raiser for Angels Anonymous. Funds raised at the event will help the nonproďŹ t group continue oďŹ&#x20AC;ering one-time assistance with basic needs to residents of North Lincoln County. The ball will take place from 5:30 pm to midnight at Chinook Winds Casino Resort, oďŹ&#x20AC;ering hors dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;oeuvres, dinner and dancing. Tickets are $75 apiece and can be purchased at the Lincoln City Chamber of Commerce at 4039 NW Logan Road or by calling 541-994-3070. The highlight of the evening will be the auctioning oďŹ&#x20AC; of roughly 30 themed Christmas trees decorated and sponsored by local businesses and individuals for the annual Fantasy of Trees display This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entries are under wraps until the event opens but previous themes have included Betty Boop, ďŹ remen, Harry Potter, chocolates, peacocks, roses, ballerinas, ďŹ shing and old-fashioned Christmas. The trees will be available to view free of charge from noon to 8 pm from Wednesday, Dec. 4, through Friday, Dec. 6, and from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturday, Dec. 7. In addition to the auctioning of trees, the ball will feature numerous drawings and the chance to bid on special auction items and holiday wreaths.

AQUARIUM is LEAVING THE LIGHTS ON

U

nder normal circumstances, lights at sea are a predictable affair. Keep the red lights on the port side, the green to starboard and the white on the stern and you won’t go far wrong. But things are set to become a little more complicated when the Sea of Lights celebration gets underway at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. The standard rules of nautical navigation will be thrown aside as red, green and white lights join a host of other colors shimmering throughout the aquarium grounds. The event kicks off with live holiday music and an opportunity to meet Santa in his workshop from 6:30 to 9:30 pm on Friday, Dec. 6, and Saturday, Dec. 7. Thousands of colorful twinkling lights and holiday decorations will surround visitors with the spirit of the season as they explore the aquarium after hours.

Admission is $5 per person or just $2 if accompanied by a donation of food or children’s toys to one of the aquarium’s featured charities. Guests can donate two items of non-perishable food for Food Share of Lincoln County; pet food for the Lincoln County Animal Shelter or

a new unwrapped children’s toy for the Newport Fire Department’s Holiday Toy Drive. Aquarium members can get in free of charge but organizers said they hope members will still choose to donate to one of the good causes. “Sea of Lights lets the

Aquarium give back to the community, but we also organize it for the sheer fun of it,” said event organizer Michele Steen. “There is no other place to go see a big light display on the central Oregon Coast.” Lance Beck, director of marketing at the aquarium, said this year’s show will also be open every weekend in December to make it easier for everyone to get a chance to see the lights. Starting Sunday, Dec. 8, and every following Saturday and Sunday in December, Sea of Lights will illuminate the aquarium from 5 to 8 pm. Admission to these later dates is $8 per person. The Oregon Coast Aquarium, located at 2820 S.E. Ferry Slip Road, is open every day, except Dec. 25, this winter from 10 am to 5 pm. For more information, go to aquarium.org or call 541-8673474.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inspecting Carolâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; well worth a peek

A play worth investigating This weekend is the last chance to peek behind the scenes of the theatrical process as the Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts stage a play aboutâ&#x20AC;Ś staging a play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inspecting Carol,â&#x20AC;? on stage at the Barn Community Playhouse in Tillamook, tells the story of the Soapbox Theatre as they try to drum up enthusiasm for their 12th annual production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Christmas Carol.â&#x20AC;? The cast is well and truly tired of the play, which has been done with the same actors for so long that Tiny Tim has entered puberty. But the company needs the cash cow in order to impress an inspector from the National Endowment of the Arts into renewing their arts grant. Written by Daniel Sullivan and directed by Chris Chiola, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inspecting Carolâ&#x20AC;? oďŹ&#x20AC;ers a look at the backstage antics surrounding the show, including problems with the cast, money, and a wandering out of work actor. Chiola said the play brings a little mild adult humor to the holiday season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope audiences will laugh themselves silly watching this play,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I hope it gives people a break from the madness of the holiday season. We all need an escape from time to time and I know people will enjoy this take on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Christmas Carol.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Chiola who also directed TAPA comedies

Yaquina Birders and Naturalists are looking for volunteers to take part in the annual Christmas Bird Count, which aims to catalog as many birds as possible in the Yaquina Bay area from 7 am to 4 pm on Sunday, Jan. 5. Bird enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels, even beginners, are encouraged to participate. Dawn Harris, who organizes the local eďŹ&#x20AC;ort, said the Christmas Bird Count is considered to be the longest-running citizen science survey in the world and provides critical data on population trends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tens of thousands of participants know that it is also a great way to meet new people, explore new habitat, learn more about our feathered friends or simply sharpen your birding skills,â&#x20AC;? she said. The Yaquina Bay count is within a 15mile diameter circle that extends from Yaquina Head southward to Seal Rock and eastward to Toledo and includes a variety of habitats attractive to birds

Hawk by Ram Papish

including a national wildlife refuge, three state parks and two county parks. During Yaquina Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last count, 41 birdwatchers in the ďŹ eld and at backyard feeders recorded 142 species of birds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether you want to be in the ďŹ eld or watch feeders from your window your participation is welcomeâ&#x20AC;? Harris said. To sign up or for more information, contact Harris at oregoncoastbirding@ gmail.com

All things considered, $35 is already a pretty good price for a huge chunk of the Oregon Coast, but folks who want an even better deal are in luck â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Oregon PaciďŹ c Coast Annual Passports will again be on sale at a $5 discount throughout December, selling for just $30. The passport covers Oregon State Parks, Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service sites along the Oregon Coast. It is valid for a full year from the date of purchase and covers day-use and parking fees at more than 20 sites from Astoria to Brookings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The $5 discount on the annual pass allows local residents to get a little break on the price,â&#x20AC;? said Stacey Forson, Siuslaw National Forest recreation staďŹ&#x20AC; oďŹ&#x192;cer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The discount makes giving the pass as a holiday gift an even more attractive deal.â&#x20AC;? Revenues from passport sales are retained locally and help operate, maintain and enhance recreation facilities and services managed by the four participating agencies, allowing coastal sites to provide higher levels of service than would otherwise be possible. Although not discounted, there is also a ďŹ ve-day passport, costing $10, ideal for people visiting the coast for just a short time. Passes can be purchased at the following locations from Monday through Friday: Hebo Ranger District, 31525 Hwy. 22, 503-392-5100; Central Coast Ranger District, 1130 Forestry Lane, Waldport, 541-563-3211; Cape Perpetua Visitor Center, 2400 Hwy. 101, Yachats, 541-547-3289; or by calling 1-800-551-6949.
