The life of pie

his week, I have been spending a lot of time thinking about pie. Those who know me will tell you that this in no way dierentiates the past week from any other week of the year. In fact, ask me what’s on my mind at pretty much any time of any day and the answer will most likely be pie — except on those occasions when I’m thinking of cake. But this week is dierent in that I have had a very good reason for daydreaming about aky crusts and gooey ďŹ llings and light, uy toppings‌ Sorry, I lost my train of though for a second. Thanksgiving, of course, is the reason that I’ve had pie on the brain — a time when dessert rises to its rightful place as the focus of a nation’s attention. This Thanksgiving, my contribution to the feasting Patrick Alexander will be a banoee pie, a banana and toee dessert Editor which I believe to this day was the deciding factor in my wife accepting my proposal of marriage. I am occasionally reminded that its appearances have diminished considerably since we skipped down the aisle but I swear, dear reader, I have a good excuse. Not to be confused with the oh-so-simple banana cream pie, the banoee pie is a tricky little devil to make, largely because of the toee ďŹ lling, which takes a tin of sweetened condensed milk, a pan of water and a good, solid three hours of constant boiling. Over the years, I have killed several saucepans in the process of creating this soughtafter specialty, which, I hasten to add, is not a family recipe. I realize now the wisdom my mother showed in passing on as the family tradition the humble lemon meringue pie, a recipe notable for its straightforward ingredients, easy-to-remember quantities and — most importantly of all — limited time at the stove. Watching for the lemon ďŹ lling to thicken required such constant attention that even the most scatterbrained child could not get bored and wander o halfway through. All of which makes me wonder whether the banoee pie will be the recipe I pass along to my six-month-old son when he is tall enough to reach the stove. Boiling water, a red-hot burner and caramelized toee that clings like napalm? Suddenly that boring old banana cream pie is looking like a pretty good option.

Get chapter and verse in Waldport Sunday

Coastal poets Jean Esteve and Ruth F. Harrison will celebrate release of their new books with a reading at the Waldport Community Center on Sunday, Nov. 24. Esteve’s chapbook “Off-Key” was a finalist for last year’s Oregon Book Award in poetry. Her new full-length collection “The Winter Sun” won praise from Oregon Poet Laureate Paulann Petersen, who described it as “wry, witty, darkly ironic music.”

“She becomes a winter sun,” Petersen said, “claiming as her own whatever catches and reflects some of her light.” Meanwhile, Harrison is the author of seven volumes of poetry and is founder of the Tuesday Writers. Last year she published a poetry collection, entitled “How Singular and Fine,” which was nominated for an Oregon Book Award this year. Her brand new volume is called “West of 101.”

Former Oregon Poetry Association president Sharon Roso says that Harrison “knows, and relates, the secrets ravens tell.” The event, hosted by Turnstone Books of Oregon, the Tuesday Writers, and the Friends of Waldport Library, will take place at 2:30 pm, 265 Hemlock Street. For more information, call 541563-6263 or e-mail turnstonebooks@

S Get wind of this discussion

Does your neighbor’s dog bark all day? Do they use power tools at inconsiderate times in the evening? Or do they insist on barbecuing cuttlefish heads on days when the wind is blowing your way? If so, you’ve got lousy neighbors but Gordon “Mick” McLean still has you beat. For many years McLean lived on a wheat farm in Walla Walla, Washington, making him one of the so-called “downwinders’ who dealt with leaks from the Hanford Nuclear Reservation on the banks of the Columbia River. In a Saturday, Nov. 23, presentation at the North Lincoln County Historical Museum, McLean will detail the role Hanford played in the Manhattan Project, a massive research endeavor to create the plutonium that was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan. The significance of plutonium and the nuclear bomb in effectively ending World War II, along with Hanford’s continuing role and success in the Cold War will also be discussed. Gordon “Mick” McLean McLean will give a first hand account of how the people who lived downwind and downstream from Hanford dealt with leaks of the “hottest toxic waste” in the world. He will also examine the plant’s unintended consequences and collateral damage to the environment in and around the Columbia River. Mclean holds a B.S. and M.A. from Washington State University and is retired from a 35-year career in hospital administration from Providence Health and Services. He and his wife, Patsy, live in Lincoln City, where he continues to work as a rural community advocate and serves as chairman of the North Lincoln Health District. The Nov. 23 presentation will take place at 1 pm in the museum, 4907 SW Hwy. 101 in the Taft district of Lincoln City. Free parking is available across the street and admission is also free, thanks to a grant form the Lincoln City Visitor & Convention Bureau.

Sounds good. Social we go?

inger-songwriter, folk troubadour and international political activist Tom Neilson will bring his national “Music for Social Change” tour to Lincoln City on Friday, Nov. 22. Known as the Bard Insurgent, Neilson provides a voice for all those who believe in the power of folk music to effect change. His award-winning songs of humor and compassion on 13 CDs have been performed in 20 countries on five continents. A veteran of stage and street theater, his music reflects his involvement with heroin addicts, the poor, human rights, safe energy, and liberation movements from Nicaragua to Eritrea. His original works, parodies of popular tunes, well-known freedom songs, and poetry draw the listener into his musical response to globalization. Born on a dairy farm, Neilson was raised with long days in the barns and hayfields of upstate New York. Soloing in the Sand Hill Methodist Church at the age of 3, he first learned performing arts under the tutelage of his choir director and church organist mother. Neilson said that after graduating from the State University of New York Cortland in 1970 he decided he had “more in common with Vietnamese farmers than he did with the Wall Street brokers who were sponsoring the war.” An anti-war organizer in the ’60s, Neilson left the United States for Colombia, where he lived until 1974. He worked in public health in Senegal from 1975 to 1978, then, taught English in Portugal and traveled in North Africa. Back in the United States, Neilson became a tri-lingual counselor in the Alcoholism Unit at Cambridge City Hospital while getting his M.Ed. in Counseling Psychology from Northeastern in 1981. At Northeastern, Tom soloed on his third record of classical/contemporary music. As a classical vocalist, he has performed at the Washington Cathedral, New York

City’s Town Hall, Boston’s Symphony Hall and the New England Conservatory of Music. Combining art with activism, he has appeared with Medea Benjamin, Cynthia McKinney, Amy Goodman, Cindy Sheehan, Cesar Chavez, Noam Chomsky, Ralph Nader, Ray McGovern, Howard Zinn, Bruce Gagnon, David Cobb and many others. His travels are reflected in his songs, intertwined with his farm routes and a fervent commitment to social justice, as he writes about historical and current events that he says are “disappeared or distorted in the media.” He has been at the forefront in helping communities organize against war, water privatization, mountain top removal, nuclear energy, incinerators, GMOs, fracking and toxic waste. The Nov. 22 concert will begin at 7 pm in the auditorium at Lincoln City Cultural Center, 540 NE Hwy. 101. Tickets, $15 in advance, are on sale now. Call 541-994-9994 for details or go to

For most people at Thanksgiving, baking just one pie can be enough to tip them over the edge into a full-blown kitchen crisis. But for Kathy Draper at Captain Dan’s Pirate Pastry Shop, the prospect of being surrounded by dozens of orders for everything from pumpkin pie to marionberry to coconut cream is pure bliss. “When I’m doing pies all day for two days, I’m just in heaven,” she said. Kathy, who runs the bakery together with her husband, the swashbuckling Captain Dan himself, has been baking ever since she was a girl. “My mother and I used to make Christmas cookies together,” Kathy said.

“She would bake them and I would frost them and decorate them. When she got too old to bake cookies anymore, we kind of reversed roles.” Kathy carried on baking through her teens, winning ribbons at the county fair every year. But, when the time came to pick a career, banking won out over baking, with Kathy going on to work at several financial institutions including the Federal Reserve Bank and meeting husband Dan along the way. But her culinary talents continued to show through and hardly a potluck passed by without one of her colleagues urging her to open a bakery. So, six years ago, the couple walked the plank, took the plunge and Captain Dan’s was born. Ever since opening, the pair have

In a changing world, there is great comfort to be found in things that remain constant — like the magnificent views offered from the restaurant and lounge at the Surfrider Resort overlooking the Pacific Ocean from Lincoln Beach. Those views changed not a jot when the resort became part of the Clarion hotel group this summer and, with winter approaching, the Surfrider will play host to another unchanging tradition, the annual Thanksgiving buffet. A longstanding favorite with locals as well as hotel guests, the buffet takes over the resort’s restaurant from 10 am to 7 pm, offering a festive take on breakfast, lunch and dinner. Krystal Paget, head of the restaurant’s front-of-house operations, said reservations are strongly recommended for the buffet, which replaces the regular menu with a range of traditional holiday favorites. The breakfast buffet runs from 10 am to 1 pm, with options including sliced turkey and ham, Eggs Benedict, smoked salmon scramble and strawberry crépes. Adult admission is $19.95, with a senior rate of $17.95. At 1 pm, the restaurant switches gear, offering a lunch and dinner buffet that runs until 7 pm, costing $21.95 for adults or $19.95 for seniors. The menu includes turkey, ham, prime rib and baked salmon with all the traditional fixins, like mashed potatoes, yams, stuffing and cranberry sauce. Throughout the day, a range of desserts are on offer, including berry cobbler, sticky buns, pumpkin pie, apple pie and pumpkin cheesecake. For both buffets, kids under three eat free. Kids aged 3 to 5 pay $5, while those aged 5 to 12 pay $13. And all the buffet items come with a side of something you won’t find on the menu — unparalleled views of the ocean and Fogarty Creek State Park that General Manager Greg Thomason said were the first thing that struck him when he took the helm this summer. Paget agreed that the view alone makes the Surfrider a

special place to work as well as to relax. “It’s gorgeous,” she said. “I don’t complain about coming to work because I’ve got the perfect work view.” After guests have finished admiring the state park’s beaches and rock formations from the restaurant, they can head next door to the lounge, where a full frontal ocean vista awaits. Recently remodeled to include wooden floors and an expanded bar, the 21-and-over lounge offers a very different atmosphere from the restaurant, bringing to mind the interior of a ship on a long ocean voyage. “You get more of the family atmosphere in the restaurant,” Paget said. “Here in the lounge, we are more for the adults that want to enjoy a cocktail, watch TV and play video lottery.” Every day from 4 to 7 pm, happy hour offers drink deals and a daily cocktail on special. Football fans can take advantage of a special game-day menu, with Buffalo chicken wings, beef and cheese nachos, popcorn shrimp and calamari all on offer for $6 apiece. Lounge guests will likely also get to make friends with Fred, the bold seagull that has become a fixture on the lounge’s balcony, happy to take care of any leftover popcorn shrimp that might be looking for a home. Among the liveliest nights at the Surfrider are Wednesdays and Sundays, when, from 4 pm to close, prime rib is on offer, with an 8-ounce portion for $18 and a 10-ounce helping for $20. But, as befits its oceanfront setting, the restaurant’s main focus will always be seafood, with dinner entrées including macadamia nut halibut with a honey ginger glaze; Dungeness crab cakes in creamy caper sauce; salmon served grilled, Cajun-style or baked in a lemon caper dill sauce; and the Surfrider seafood sauté, consisting of prawns scallops, crab and halibut in a garlic wine butter sauce. In addition, the restaurant has seafood specials almost every day.For breakfast, the Surfrider’s specialty is a seafood omelet with local Dungeness crab, Oregon bay shrimp and cheddar

cheese. Other options include Eggs Benedict with Canadian bacon; French toast with bacon, ham or sausage; Belgian waffles; and large blueberry pancakes. For lunch, how about fish and chips made with Pacific rockfish or quesadillas made with either shrimp or chicken? Sandwiches on offer include the Monte Cristo; prime rib with French dip; and a Dungeness crab or bay shrimp melt. Paget said the restaurant is dedicated to fresh seafood and hand-batters all its fried fish to order. “You can tell the difference,” she said. “It’s a completely different taste.” The Surfrider Resort is located at 3115 Hwy. 101, Lincoln Beach, just north of Fogarty Creek State Park. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, from 7:30 am to 9 pm. The lounge is open from 11 am to 9 pm Monday to Thursday; 10 am to 11:30 pm on Friday and Saturday; and 10 am to 9 pm on Sunday. Call them at 541-764-2311.

Art that gets right to the point

People from Lincoln City to Yachats are being invited to show off their artistic talents by taking part in the 23rd Annual PushPin Community Show at the Newport Visual Arts Center. The show, hosted by the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts, is open to Lincoln County residents of all ages and all levels of experience, from complete beginners to dabblers to established professionals. The work will be on show from Saturday, Dec. 7, through Jan. 5 in the center’s Runyan Gallery. The original PushPin Community Show was the brainchild of local artist and art activist Jimmy Frankfort. While it has grown over the years, it remains an inclusive, all-county show that exemplifies part of OCCA’s mission to build an “art bridge” between the arts and the community. Participants should bring their artwork to center, located at 777 NW Beach Drive, from 11 am to 4 pm on Friday, Dec. 6, or Saturday, Dec. 7. Artwork must be picked up on Jan. 5. All artwork must be original — no prints or facsimiles — and must be hung with four or fewer pushpins. In order to make sure there is enough space for everyone, pieces should be no larger than 48 inches by 48 inches. This is a family oriented community show, and OCCA asks that the work be appropriate for all audiences. Participants may price their work for sale, with the OCCA retaining a 30-percent commission for sales by members and a 35-percent commission for non-members. Visitors to the PushPin Community Show will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite piece, with the People’s Choice winner and runners up announced at the gallery opening reception in January. For more information, call Sally Houck at 541-265-6569.

Dan Anderson’s copper repoussé lamps

The sun is due to set in Newport at 4:40 pm on Saturday, Nov. 23, creating perfect conditions for the “Lights Out” gallery tour at the grand opening of Ozone Fine Arts newest exhibit. “The Art of the Light” features works ranging from watercolors to ceramic to woodwork, all of which aim to bring a little light to the coast’s darkest months. “With short days and gray weather, light is a favorite subject for everyone yearning for sunshine and warmth,” gallery owner Karen Candelario said. “Light has always been a favorite subject matter of artists ranging from the challenge of capturing of light with paint to By Joe Santos creatively lit sculptures.” From a sprocket-riddled factory to a whimsical snail, local artist Juergen Eckstein invites viewers to marvel at sculptures that emanate light. Meanwhile, a warm light is cast by Dan Anderson’s copper repoussé lamps, which are reminiscent of the sea-foam kissed beach rocks bedecked with sea stars. Elsewhere in the gallery, candlelit luminary sconces made of reclaimed wood and fisherman’s knots have rustic romantic appeal with practical use. John Macnab’s rendering of a sunset glinting on incoming waves and Becky Miller’s kelp paintings demonstrate how artists use their mastery of different styles to convey light in distinct ways. Other artists share their inner light or thoughts of enlightenment such as visions from the Himalayas like “Prayer Flags” by Susan Farnham or abstracted reflections like “Moodras” by Candelario herself. Watercolor artist Joe Santos finds inspiration in actual lights. His photorealistic renderings of old lit store signs and vintage car backs pay silent homage to these sentimental subjects and show a certain lust for light and rust. The show opens on Saturday, Nov. 23, with a public reception from 5 to 8 pm at the gallery, upstairs at 669 SW Bay Blvd on the Newport bay front. The ‘Lights-Out’ gallery tour will start at about 6 pm to show off the luminary art and guests will be invited to take part in an interactive art project. The show runs through Jan. 6. For more information call Candelario at 541265-9500.


t’s not often you visit the beach and meet a mysterious man who is either: A) A former CIA spook/assassin B) An ex-Wiseguy in the federal witness protection program C) A retired operative in the international war against industrial espionage D) All of the above E) None of the above I did meet such a man last month or last year and I feel compelled to write about this concrete and opaque encounter and illuminate and obfuscate here and there as much as I can by confirming or denying something Joan Didion wrote: “Writers are always selling out someone, somewhere.” I can guarantee you this man read this piece. He probably read it while I was typing it on my typewriter. They can do such incredible things with satellites and drones these days. The encounter began at sunset. My neighbor Dan and I were romping down the beach with our dogs. In the distance we saw a man and a woman standing near the creek with their dog on a leash. Dan’s dog Sally, a friendly pit bull, approached the couple. Dan raced over to forestall an incident. All conscientious dog owners do this in similar situations because conflicts can arise, especially over misconceptions about a breed. Dan later told me that the man was initially gruff, but Sally can unloosen the hardest of human hearts and his tension disappeared. A friendly conversation ensued as the sun drooped over the horizon. Sonny and I came over and joined them.

one man’s beach

The mystery man His name was George or Sam or Fred or Elmer. I was actually praying for Merle. Has any American parent named their boy Merle in the last 50 years? By the way, I’ve always loved the named Florence for a girl. Flo, flow like a river. She would head all her draconian school assignments either Flo or Flow or Floe and confound all the spreadsheets. After a pleasant interaction at the beach, Dan and I got invited up for a drink in the couple’s nearby rental. It was either a yurt or a mansion. We stashed the dogs in my truck and went inside. The man brought out good whiskey, Maker’s Mark bourbon or Chivas Regal scotch. The couple hailed from Southern Oregon or Eastern Washington. They were celebrating their anniversary or enjoying a weekend at the beach courtesy of a benefit to save the whales. I liked their dog a lot, a lazy German shepherds. Or perhaps I liked their cat, a goofy Persian. The man asked us interesting, probing questions about our lives. He listened well and so did his wife. He poured Dan and me another whiskey and one for himself. I told him how Dan had rescued Sally from a shelter and healed her psychic trauma. I also said I was an author and wanted to give him my new book on rain. In recent years, I’ve found that giving away books to strangers or leaving them in strange places helps me find a unique Oregon readership. So I ran out to the truck and retrieved one. He thanked me profusely and thumbed the pages. “I’ll start reading it tomorrow,” he said. I instantly believed him. Then something extraordinary happened

that I still can’t fathom. His perfectly eloquent diction vanished and this was no slurring. His exquisite vocabulary evaporated like the Caspian Sea. His gesticulations changed. He slipped into an accent reminiscent of “The Sopranos,” “Goodfellas” or “The Godfather.” Dan and I stole glances at one another. The Jersey shore had come to the Oregon Coast. The man regaled us with cryptic asides that alluded to something dark and dangerous in his past, possibly in connection to the military. There was also something about horses. I channeled my Woodward and Bernstein and asked some questions. He answered by not answering, which was his right. I persisted and got clouds of non-sequiturs in return. At some point, Dan and I had to leave. Outside, we wondered what had just happened. The next morning I took Sonny to the beach. On our way there, I saw the man inside his rental sitting in an easy chair. He was reading my book. He saw me, tapped the window, and waved. I waved back. Upon our return from the beach, the man emerged from the rental holding my book. “I’ve nearly finished your book. May I say something about it?” Not a trace of accent. “Of course.” I had never been reviewed quite like this and I relished the thought. “Your book is an epic aphorism on rain. I am enjoying it very much.” I thanked him. It was the best two-word review of anything I’ve ever written. The second best was when a critic said my documentary history of Vortex 1, the notorious 1970 free Oregon rock festival, was a “hash brownie” of

C O M M E N TA R Y • B Y M A T T L O V E

a book. Perhaps my rain book is an epic hash brownie aphorism on one form of precipitation. We stood near my truck for almost an hour, conversing on a litany of subjects ranging from meteorology to mineralogy. I apologized for my impertinent questions the previous night; I didn’t mean to pry. I’m just curious in a world where people satisfy their curiosity by strictly going online. He forgave me and said he liked the interest. He used the term “vector search” after I described my technique for finding limpets on the beach. Look it up. There was a crackling story here; I could smell it like the first woodsmoke of the football season. He wanted me to smell it. I had to go. A rainstorm was imminent and I needed to set up my shot glasses for collection because rain and whiskey is my new favorite drink. I gave him my card and he said he’d be in touch. As we shook hands and parted, I quoted the Didion line. “I trust you,” he said. I caught his translucent drift and tacit tell-it-slant implication. We were rock solid in the belief of our invisibly implied foundation. Had we first met anywhere else but on an Oregon Coast beach, he wouldn’t have told me a thing. Matt Love lives with his husky, Sonny. His latest book, “Of Walking in Rain,” is available at and coastal bookstores. He can be reached at You can also visit to read his blog on rain.

Theses Belles are having a ball

After opening to a packed house and a standing ovation last weekend, “Christmas Belles,” the festive show from Newport’s Porthole Players, is gearing up for another whacky weekend. The play tells the story of the three Futrelle sisters and their efforts to stage a church show in the fictional Texas town of Fayro — involving a vengeful sheep, a reluctant Elvis impersonator and a Santa gone wild. The tightly woven tale sees the eldest Futrelle sister, Honey Rae, take charge of the Tabernacle of the Lamb’s Christmas Program — deciding to shake up the time-honored tradition that has been running for 27 years. Juggling her director’s duties with hot flashes, Honey Raye does her best to keep the show from spiraling into chaos, but things are not looking too promising. To add to the stresses, Miss Geneva, the ousted director of the previous 27 productions, is ruthless in her attempts to regain control. It’s at time like this that you know you can count on family to rally ’round, but Honey Raye’s sisters, Frankie and Twink, come with some serious baggage. A cranky Frankie is weeks overdue with her second set of twins, while Twink, recently jilted and bitter about it, is in jail for accidentally burning down half the town. As opening night gets closer and closer, the problems keep adding up. The celebrity guest Santa Claus, played by Frankie’s long-suffering husband, Dub, is passing a kidney stone; one of the shepherds refuses to watch over his flock by night without pulling his little red wagon

behind him; and the entire cast is dropping like flies due to food poisoning from the Band Boosters’ Pancake Supper. But all these problems pale in comparison to the play’s climax, involving the revelation of a closely guarded family secret that it seems even an Elvis impersonator at the manger can’t fix.

But in true Futrelle fashion, the feuding sisters find a way to pull together in order to present a Christmas program the citizens of Fayro will never forget. Written by the internationally renowned comic trio of Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, “Christmas Belles” is the second

of three plays featuring the dysfunctional sisters, taking its place in between “Dearly Departed” and “Southern Comfort.” The Newport production stars many wellloved veterans of the coastal theater scene, including Betsy Henderson, Khloella Brateng, Nikki and Justin Atkins, Akia Woods, Eric Schindler, LeeAnn Chandler, and Alex Robbins. Rounding out the 11-person cast are Dana Fleck, Noel Sutton, and newcomer Lance Sullivan. “Even after weeks of rehearsal, I still find myself laughing at many of the things in this show,” director Cyn Wilkes said, “which is a credit to how well my wonderful cast plays off one another.” The play will run through to Dec. 1, with performances at 7 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, as well as 2 pm matinées each Sunday, all at the Newport Performing Arts Center, 777 W. Olive Street. Tickets cost $16 apiece and are on sale now at the center box office as well as online at For more information, call 541 265-2787.

Prepare for a zesty one-woman show in Lincoln City Elizabeth Black has a way with words. The consummate toastmaster, information center volunteer and veteran of the community theater stage, can tell a good tale. She can also write a funny yarn, and deliver it with the best of them as coastal audiences have seen time and time again. Now, Black is back with “My Life as a Lemon Lady,” a one-woman, humorous and mostly true play at the Lincoln City Cultural Center on Saturday, Nov. 23. The one-act show sees Black relating her own life experiences, as

well as those she has liberated from the rest of her family. “Because my stories are intensely personal and involve members of my huge family, I deliberately avoided inviting my sisters and brother, and my numerous in-laws, to ‘My Life,’” Black said. “However, word got out and they will be in the audience, in force.” “My Life as a Lemon Lady” is the sequel to Black’s last autobiographical one-act, “The Lemon Ladies’ Last Garage Sale,” which hit the stage in January 2012. It’s been 18 months since Black last performed on the cultural

center stage, but she’s been busy. In December 2012, she stole the holiday show at Theatre West as the titular grandma in “Nana’s Naughty Knickers,” and just this summer, grabbed more than her share of laughs in the Theatre West production of “The Fox on the Fairway.” Black is the former president of the cultural center and continues to serve on the board as well as in the center’s Visitor Information Center. In March, the other board members dedicated one of the center’s meeting rooms in honor of Black’s many years of service. It is now called the

Elizabethan Room. As an admission charge for the show, Black is asking all her fans to bring $10 and a non-perishable food donation for the Lincoln City Food Pantry. Cultural center volunteers will be on hand with beer and wine, as well as yummy lemon bars, all sold separately with proceeds to benefit the center. Doors for the Nov. 23 show will open at 6:30 pm, with curtain at 7 pm, 540 NE Hwy. 101. To reserve tickets, call 541-9949994 or drop by the center, open 10 am to 4 pm every day except Tuesday.

The Christmas show at the Barn Community Playhouse in Tillamook will give audiences a 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 Carolâ&#x20AC;? 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;?

The cast is a mix of theater veterans as well as newbies, including Ann Harper, Robert Kratz, Sandra Koops, Croix Swanson, Sarah Edwards, Al Johnson, Glen Rankin, Reggie Coon, Brett Duer, Richard Coon, Devin McDaniel and Rebecca Dougherty.

Native American artists flock to the Chessman

One-of-a-kind art prints by Native American artists from across the country are on display at the Lincoln City Cultural Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chessman Gallery in a special art show that runs through Dec 8. The show is on loan from the Crowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shadow Institute of the Arts in Pendleton, a nonproďŹ t organization aimed at providing opportunities for Native Americans through artistic development. With an emphasis on contemporary ďŹ ne-art printmaking, the institute also functions as a venue to practice traditional Native American art practices of the Plateau region â&#x20AC;&#x201D; weaving, bead working and regalia making. Renowned Walla Walla artist James Lavadour and friends incorporated the institute in 1992, with the idea of using art as a transformative tool within the Native American community. Just as art had changed and given new meaning to his own life, Lavadour wanted to create a place that would help others of American Indian heritage similarly realize the potential of art. With a spacious gallery and worldclass printmaking studio, the institute brings in emerging and established artists to produce monotypes, monoprints and editions â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including lithographs, etchings, linocuts, woodcuts and more.

Crowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shadow recognizes art as an intrinsic and essential element of Native American culture, and is committed to helping people, young and old, develop their artistic gifts and skills. Through a variety of professional and educational services, the institute looks to give dedicated artists a strong voice while also providing a conduit to the mainstream art world. The Crowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shadow Institute is housed within the historic St. Andrews mission schoolhouse at the base of the peaceful and inspiring Blue Mountain foothills on the Umatilla Indian Reservation. The exhibition on display at the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Omphalosâ&#x20AC;? (above) by Marie Watt and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lively Conversationâ&#x20AC;? by Chessman Gallery is a diverse, yet Lillian Pitt harmonious collection of art prints created by Native American artists near and far. Portland-area artists Lillian Pitt, Wendy Red Star and Marie Watt as well as Newportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rick Bartow share the gallery with Lavadour from Walla Walla, Seattleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ramon Murillo and artists from back East, such as Kay WalkingStick, JeďŹ&#x20AC;ery Gibson and Jim Denomie from Minnesota. The gallery is open from 10 am to 4 pm, Wednesday through Monday at 540 NE Hwy. 101. For more information, call 541-9949994 or go to lincolncity-culturalcenter. org.
