Some light entertainment

1

For the past few months, whenever I turn on a light I have been emitting a high pitched “ping” sound. This has not been solely for my own amusement, although I do heartily recommend it to anyone who feels the need to start adding soundtrack elements to their everyday life. The next step is to start muttering “brum-brum-brum” to yourself whenever you are driving the car. No, the reason for my recent exclamations has been to bring a smile to the face of my beloved seven month old boy, who — upon hearing the “ping” and seeing the light — looks at me with a wide-eyed wonder that makes me feel like Gandalf. And it is for this reason that the Tree Lighting Party at the Lincoln City Cultural Center leads this week’s Top 5. When the powers that be flick the switch to illuminate the 30-foot Noble Fir on the center’s front lawn, I intend to emit an almighty “ping” that will hopefully linger in his little memory long after he’s tall enough to play havoc with the switches at home. See page 18 for the full story.

Looking for a good way to spend one of these clear, crisp mornings? What could be better than crabbing from the Newport pier? Especially given the news that the commercial Dungeness season won’t start until Dec. 15 at the earliest. See page 19 to find out how my first trip went.

Having Santa arrive on a sleigh pulled by actual reindeer sounds fantastic until some wise person raises the question of dung. Kudos, then, to the bright spark that decreed Saint Nic should arrive in Newport by boat instead. See page 13 for details.

I have to confess that David Barsamian often ruins my evening. I come home, take off my shoes, flip on the radio and there he is on “Alternative Radio”— informing me about another massive, global problem that I had managed to push to the back of my mind. But for well-argued, thought-provoking analysis, he’s tough to beat. See page 8 for details of his trip to Newport.

If you’re looking to forget your troubles for a while instead, Aces Bar and Grill in Lincoln City is the place to be. Not only do they have 26 beers on tap, but they are celebrating the Ducks v. Beavers game on Friday with a massive party and the unveiling of the aptly named beer, Bitter Ry-Valry.

“We

N

ot long after moving to South Beach in 2008, I bought a used copy of Richard Hugo’s collected poems, “Making Certain It Goes On.” Here and there I’d perused his Pacific Northwest-rooted poems in anthologies but hadn’t been particularly struck by them. Then I saw the tattered collection for sale and it called out to me, as some old books do in old bookstores. That never happens online, by the way. You can’t download the smell and feel — the instinct — of a book. And yes, I’ve bought books because of their smell and annotations. One winter night, rain fell hard on my cabin and I began to read the collection. Two hours later I finished the book. One poem in particular, “Port Townsend, 1974,” seized me unlike any other poem I have ever read. I have yet to get it out of my mind. The poem especially enlivens me when I stand at the edge of the ocean and ponder strange and vexing personal matters. I distill part of Hugo’s poem for you here: On this dishonored, this perverted globe we go back to the sea and the sea opens for us. …aches of what we wanted to be and reluctantly are play out in the wash, wash up the sand die and slip back placid to the crashing source.

RICH

ARD

HUGO ’S

Abs

The sea releases our rage. …The sea makes fun of what we are and we laugh beside our fire, seeing our worst selves amplified in space and wave. We are absurd. Until I read “Port Townsend, 1974,” I was unable to fully understand why the ocean exerted such a tremendous influence on me. Why did I go there so often? Why was I so drawn? Why did I get up at all hours to meet the beach? Why didn’t everyone feel this way? Of course, as you have read in this column over the years, some of the visits were for sheer fun and adventure. Most times they were not. They meant something else. “We are absurd.” Yes. Tell it Richard. Yes. At times, I have felt absurd and in desperate need of self effacing. The ocean provides this self effacing with exponential power. It simply and routinely annihilates me and the multiple pretensions that originate when striving to become a writer of national stature. It makes fun of me. It makes me laugh at myself. It releases all rage. It crushes me daily and then builds me up to be crushed another day. The ocean teaches me to never quit. The annihilating impulse from the

urd”

limitlessness marine world has taught me more of myself, of moral good and evil, than all the books and sages and preachers ever did. Certainly more than the hectoring coaches from my youth who screamed nothing but clichés. You never impart wisdom by screaming, let alone clichés. The ocean never screams. It just roars when it whispers, kind of like a certain Richard Hugo poem. Just imagine if the ocean could bestow this same annihilating (“We are absurd”) impulse upon Congress. Of course, they’d have to convene a session on a beach, preferably a free Oregon coastal beach, as rain moves sideways, without umbrellas or bottled water. I’ll deliver the invocation and hand out keyhole limpets for visioning. I’ll invite whales to testify. The lobbyists will flee to Florida with their tanned escorts and check into luxury hotels with private beaches. Watch how fast everything would change for the better. Matt Love lives with his husky, Sonny. His latest book, “Of Walking in Rain,” is available at nestuccaspitpress.com and coastal bookstores. He can be reached at lovematt100@yahoo.com. You can also visit nestuccaspitpress.com/blog/ to read his blog on rain.

Voicing her support Newport-born opera singer Erica Brookhyser is using her next trip home to share the story of how her international career began with an appearance on the stage of the Newport Performing Arts Center. Brookhyser’s Tuesday, Dec. 3, talk is the first in a series of presentations from professional performers who got their start at the PAC. All are lending their support to the “Entertain the Future!” campaign, which aims to raise funds to expand and enhance the center. “I owe a debt of gratitude to all of the people who are the PAC for always believing in me, my talent, and my dreams!” said Brookhyser, whose career has seen her perform professionally from Los Angeles to Darmstadt, Germany.

Share the bird-en There’s more to the holiday period than counting up the gifts under the tree and the Audubon Society of Lincoln City is excited to reintroduce its Christmas Bird Count on Sunday, Dec. 15. The count starts with a team organization meeting at Pig’n Pancake at 3910 Hwy. 101, at 6:30 am and ends with results reporting and a hot meal at 4 pm. Participation is free but registration is required. For more information or to register, contact Dawn Villaescusa at 503507-8457 or d_villa@mail.com.

Mark McConnell, chair of the “Entertain the Future!” campaign, said there are more than 15 artists working around the world who got their start at the PAC. “This legacy demonstrates the significance of the PAC, and the opportunities it continues to offer future generations of our community,” he said. “Entertain the Future!” aims to raise a total of $4.3 million to fund a range of improvements, including enhancing the Alice Silverman Theatre to improve performance experience; expanding the Studio Theatre to allow for an increased range of performances; enhancing audience amenities to allow for simultaneous staging of performances; and expanding storage, practice space and green rooms to accommodate

larger shows. The current fund raising initiative is for an acoustic upgrade that would allow the Alice Silverman Theatre to be acoustically reconfigured within a matter of minutes for a variety of performances ranging from individuals to small groups to full orchestras. The campaign is currently two thirds of the way toward its $320,000 goal. Brookhyser’s free Dec. 3 presentation takes place from 3 to 4:30 pm at the Newport Performing Arts Center, 777 W Olive Street. Groups can reserve tables for 6 to 8 people by calling, 541-265 ARTS (2787). For more information go to www.coastarts.org, or email Catherine Rickbone, executive director of the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts, at crickbone@coastarts.org.

Add a little sparkle to the holidays Be Jeweled, the annual fund-raiser for Food Share of Lincoln County, is already gearing up for its seventh jewelry extravaganza, to be held Saturday, Feb. 8, at the Newport Shilo Inns and Suites. Throughout the county, volunteers are accepting donations of all types of jewelry, including watches, brooches, necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets. Costume jewelry, beads and jewelry components are also accepted. A hardworking committee will spend the next several months sorting, repairing and cleaning the donations. Donations are accepted at Food Share of Lincoln County, 535 NE 1st Street, Newport; Nye Cottage Beads in Newport; Diamonds by the

Sea in Newport and Lincoln City; Newport 60+ Activity Center; Newport Chamber of Commerce; Lincoln City Chamber of Commerce; Lincoln City Cultural Center Gift Shop; all branches of Oregon Coast Bank; all branches of Columbia Bank; the Waldport Chamber of Commerce; the Toledo Chamber of Commerce; and Hair Love. “This wonderful event benefits the Food Pantry locations in Lincoln County, and is a significant contributor to those who need help in our communities,” said event organizer Cindy McConnell, adding: “This is a great opportunity to clean out your jewelry box and benefit others at the same time.” For more information on Food

Become a local hero Small Business Saturday

On Saturday, Nov. 30, merchants in Yachats, Newport and Lincoln City will be oering discounts, special prices and other promotions to mark Small Business Saturday, an event ďŹ rst created by American Express back in 2010. Volunteers from Buy Local Lincoln County will be stationed throughout the county, oering free individual memberships. Anyone signing up on the day will receive a “Buy Local Buck,â€? which they can immediately spend in a Buy Local business of their choice. In Lincoln City, the Nelscott Strip will be the site of the Buy Local Lincoln County sign-up booth, and the free ‘Buy Local Bucks’ distribution site, with board member Dave Price on the deck next to the Nelscott Wine Shop from 10 am to 2 pm. In Newport, Buy Local volunteers will be on hand oering similar promotional oers and signing up new members both at Nye Beach and at the Newport Farmers Market from 10 am to 2 pm. Meanwhile, in Yachats, the city’s annual holiday shoppers’ rae will oer an extra incentive. The event, sponsored by local merchants, the Greater Yachats Chamber of Commerce and GoYachats, gives shoppers one rae

ticket for every $10 they spend at participating businesses, oering the chance to win prizes including gift baskets, jewelry, gift certiďŹ cates and even a night in the oceanfront Overleaf Lodge. Vicky Prince, owner of Ya-Hots Video Country store, initiated the idea of an open house for local businesses. “Yachats’ population is less than 700, but we oer an amazing array of goods and services,â€? she said. “Merchants around town wanted to encourage ongoing local support for our businesses, and I thought, why not have a friendly, community-focused event, inviting our neighbors into our stores, so they can see all that’s available ďŹ rsthand?â€? “Look for the colorful posters in participating shop windows and enjoy the experience of shopping in a small village where the person behind the counter is often the person who owns the shop,â€? read a release about the event. “Warm up with a steaming cup of coee, hot chocolate, or exotic tea, collect lots of rae tickets, and enjoy Shopping Local in Yachats this holiday season.â€? For more information about Buy Local Lincoln County, go to www. buylocallincolncounty.org.

Saturday, Nov. 30, 2013 | 10am-2pm Look for a Buy Local volunteer this Saturday from 10am to 2pm, and join Buy Local for free! When you do, you’ll get a keychain card and a window sticker, PLUS a “Buy Local Buck!� Spend that “Buck� at any participating Buy Local member business that day. It spends just like cash!

learn a little

Looking for an alternative?

One of the most distinctive voices in investigative journalism will lend his support to Lincoln County’s fledgling community radio station on Tuesday, Dec. 3, when David Barsamian visits Newport to present “Capitalism and the Environment.” Barsamian is the award-winning founder and director of “Alternative Radio,” the independent weekly audio series based in Boulder, Colorado. “Sure, we have Earth Day, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act, and the Environmental Protection Agency, but the threat to our environment is acute and growing,” Barsamian writes. “The majority of solutions — from driving a hybrid, to recycling plastic, to using efficient light bulbs — all focus on individual lifestyle choices of mostly privileged people. But the scale of the crisis requires a far deeper and fundamental transformation. As global warming accelerates, carbon-fueled industrial capitalism is systemically incapable of making the necessary radical changes to protect the planet. Its insatiable appetite for profits

8 • oregoncoastTODAY.com • facebook.com/oregoncoasttoday • november 29, 2013

precludes it from doing so. It is time to think about a different economic system.” Barsamian has worked with Noam Chomsky, Tariq Ali, Howard Zinn, Edward Said, Arundhati Roy, and others. His most recent books are “Occupy the Economy: Challenging Capitalism” with Richard Wolff, “Power Systems: Conversations on Global Democratic Uprisings,” and “The New Challenges to U.S. Empire” with Noam Chomsky. He is winner of the Media Education Award, the ACLU’s Upton Sinclair Award for independent journalism, and the Cultural Freedom Fellowship from the Lannan Foundation. The Institute for Alternative Journalism named him one of its Top Ten Media Heroes. Barsamian’s talk is a fund-raiser for KYAQ, Lincoln County’s brand new non-commercial, full-power, community radio station, which is scheduled to begin broadcasting at 91.7 FM by Jan. 4, 2014. “Part of KYAQ’s mission is to do locally what David Barsamian does on a national level through Alternative Radio,” KYAQ Board Chair Bridget Wolfe said, “present information, analyses, and views that are frequently ignored or distorted in other media. Our initial programming will reflect the interests of the volunteers who come forward to create the programming. KYAQ will continue training community journalists at Oregon Coast Community College this winter, as well as provide instruction on how to be a radio operations tech, and how to host a music or talk show, through the college’s Lifelong Learning program.” People interested in getting involved should contact Alan Searle at news@kyaq.org or 541-264-5917. Barsamian’s talk will take place at 6:30 pm at the First Presbyterian Church, 227 NE 12th Street. Admission is $10. Advance tickets are available online at KYAQ.org. Wolfe urged those who cannot attend the talk to consider making a donation to KYAQ’s capital campaign through IndieGoGo, where the station is trying to raise $6,000 for studio equipment. Donations are fully tax deductible and can be made online at www.kyaq.org, or mailed to KYAQ, P.O. Box 1664, Newport, OR 97365. For more information, go to www.kyaq.org, or contact Wolfe at 541-336-2284.

If you prefer wings, Aces has you covered, having recently expanded its offerings to include 12 different rubs and sauces, ranging from Traditional Spicy Buffalo to Garlic Lime Dry Rub; Mango Jalapeño; and Stupid Hot. “We tried that out during Super Bowl last year and we sold out of wings by half time,” Retoske said. “We thought ‘well, this might work…’” The restaurant’s location, overlooking the golf course, means it also serves as a “19th hole” for golfers, offering a range of clubhouse foods like sandwiches, burgers and wraps.

On Sundays, customers can take their pick from any of the day’s NFL games, while Monday Night football is accompanied by an all-you-can-eat buffet and jersey giveaways. And, thanks to a recently added service, Aces is now able to show Trailblazers basketball games, previously unavailable on the coast. “One of the hardest parts of the job is getting all the TVs changed to what people want,” Retoske said. Other entertainment includes a golf simulator, video lottery and free pool in the bar, as well as a shuffleboard set up in the

Retoske said being part of the Chinook Winds resort and tucked away off the highway means Aces has a clientele that includes hotel guests as well as local regulars. He said each day brings a diff erent crowd, from tennis fans one afternoon to scarf-wearing soccer fans in search of a Portland Timbers game the next. “Ducks and Beavers are king though,” he said, adding: “We go from quiet little local bar to packed on those days.” Aces Bar and Grill is located at 3245 NE Clubhouse Drive at the end of NE West Devils Lake Blvd., Lincoln City. It is open from 10 am to 10 pm Monday to Thursday; 10 am to 11 pm on Friday; 8 am to 11 pm on Saturday and 8 am to 10 pm on Sunday. Call them at 541-994-8232.

Funds raised at the event will help the nonprofit group continue offering one-time assistance with basic needs to residents of North Lincoln County. The ball will take place from 5:30 pm to midnight on Saturday, Dec. 7, at Chinook Winds Casino Resort, offering hors d’oeuvres, dinner and dancing as well as music from ’80s dance band Rendezvous. 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.

or some things in life, a boat is not optional. Touring the canals of Venice, for example; or pursuing a great white shark in the company of a grizzled seadog named Quint. But, fortunately for the landlubbers among us, crabbing on the Oregon Coast is not limited to folks who know their port from their starboard. There are plenty of places to try your luck with your feet planted firmly on dry land. Among the best of these is the pier jutting out from Newport’s South Beach in the shadow of the Yaquina Bay Bridge, offering access to prime crabbing territory a stone’s throw from the Rogue brewery. Having lived on the Oregon Coast for almost seven years without once throwing a crab ring, it was here, just a couple of weeks ago that I put that wrong to rights in the company of veteran crabber Paul Robertson of Lincoln City. One of the attractions of crabbing is that you can do it whenever you want. From the height of summer to the depths of winter; in the midday sun or at the dead of night, as long as you have your $7 shellfish license, the bays are your oyster. That’s not to say some times aren’t better than others. The best time to

on the cover

a peerless experience Get roped into crabbing on the Oregon Coast Story & photos by Patrick Alexander OREGON COAST TODAY

catch crab is at slack tide, the roughly two-hour period either side of high tide when water movement in the bay is at its lowest. This calm period is when the crabs will be out foraging and more likely to take the bait. Fortunately for me, a high tide of 11:14 am meant there was no need to get up at the crack of dawn in order to be on the pier for slack tide. Nevertheless, I dress for the elements — long johns, layers, beanie hat and a rain jacket, just in case. Oregon regulations allow each licensed crabber to have up to three traps in the water. Our arsenal consists of two full-size crab rings, basically a net with a rigid, circular edge; and two smaller Crab Max traps. Designed and manufactured in Lincoln City, the Crab Max is really made for crabbing from the shore of a bay. It’s light enough to be flung with a fishing pole and folds up like a sandwich when reeled in, trapping the crabs inside. For bait, we use cheap chicken from the local market, securing it in place to prevent it being gobbled up by hungry seals. The only thing left to do before chucking the baited trap into the water is to make sure and tie one end of the rope to the pier first. Deep grooves in the wooden railing left by the ropes of crabbers past should offer a last-

minute reminder. The Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife recommends waiting about 20 minutes before pulling in a crab ring and about 40 minutes if using a larger box trap, presumably to give the crabs time to muster the courage to crawl inside. This allows plenty of time to stroll the pier and see if your fellow crabbers are having any luck. Because crabbing doesn’t require a huge amount of kit or expertise, it draws folks from all walks of life. Among our neighbors are several families with young kids, a group of tough-looking but friendly guys a young couple who came to Newport just to camp and crab. Returning to our spot, we start to haul in the traps — a task made much easier by a pair of grippy gloves. For crab rings, the trick is to pull gently until the rope is taut, then give a sharp tug before hauling it in at a constant speed. This keeps the net in a bucket shape, making it harder for any trapped crab to escape on the way up. On our first try we get lucky. It’s a Dungeness. Luckier still, it’s a male — the females are off limits. Then the Dungeness gets lucky. Our crab-measuring tool confirms that it’s some way short of the five and three quarter inches in diameter that we

need in order to keep it. A quick photo to commemorate the catch and then it’s time to throw this little guy back. “Throw it back,” sounds so simple. Three little words that fail to do justice to a process akin to playing Twister with Edward Scissorhands. First, you have to gently extricate the crab’s seemingly endless number of limbs from the trap’s netting. Once it’s free, grab it by the back end and fling it over the side but move fast — those pincers are more flexible than they look. We pull in a bunch more undersize Dungeness before deciding to switch it up and try our luck over at the pier behind the Rogue brewery. Here, with a new view of the bridge and looking out over the marina, we get a keeper — a red rock crab. State law allows crabbers to keep up to 24 red rocks a day, regardless of size or gender. The only limiting factor is whether the crab is big enough to

bother taking home, cooking and cleaning. While no giant, this guy makes the cut and goes into the bucket where he cools his multiple heels for the drive back to Lincoln City. Now for the cooking, which, as a long time vegetarian, I admit has me apprehensive. Although I started eating seafood several years ago; it’s fair to say that getting things from the walking stage to the plate stage is really not my specialty. I’m worried that my docile-looking crab will meet his end with an otherworldly scream, a furious bout of thrashing or some other kind of drama. Nothing of the sort. One second he’s clicking away at the bottom of the bucket, the next he slides into the boiling water without a peep. Fifteen minutes later, the brick red shell has transformed to the distinctive orange and its dinnertime.

Don’t get pinched Shellfish licenses are required for all crabbers aged 14 and over and can be bought at stores including Bi-Mart in Lincoln City and Fred Meyer in Newport as well as online at www.dfw.state.or.us. An annual license costs $7 for Oregon residents or $20:50 for non-residents. Daily limits are 12 male Dungeness of at least five and three quarter inches in diameter; and 24 red rock crab of any size or gender.

get out!

Walk it off The Yachats Coastal Gems walking group is oďŹ&#x20AC;ering the perfect chance to work oďŹ&#x20AC; all that gravy and stuďŹ&#x192;ng, with a 10-kilometer walk through historic Newport on Tuesday, Dec. 3. The group will meet at the Yachats Commons at 8:50 am to carpool to the Hallmark Inn in Newport to register. Walkers can also meet the group at the Hallmark Inn at 9:45 am. The walk is rated 2a and is diďŹ&#x192;cult for wheelchairs and medium for strollers. It includes two steep hills, but is otherwise reasonably ďŹ&#x201A;at. There is a 5K option, rated 1a, for those who want a shorter walk.

t

As always, leashed pets are welcome, provided owners bring clean up materials and a 6-foot leash. On Wednesday, Dec. 4, the group will hold its annual white elephant gift exchange and potluck dinner at the home of Jim and Sue Finlayson. Bring a salad, dessert, or side dish to share with the group. Dinner will be at 5 pm and the meeting at 6 pm, with the gift exchange to follow. For more information, call Gene and Linda Williamson in Seal Rock at 541-563-6721, Maryann Brown in Waldport at 541-9614279, or go to www.yachatscoastalgems.org.

LINCOLN COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS FARMERS MARKET SATURDAYS 10 TO 2

The art of Alice LaFond and Cody Cha will be on display in a two-week spotlight show opening at the Yaquina Art Association Gallery in Newportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nye Beach on Monday, Dec. 2. LaFond works in colored pencils, creating pieces that sometimes look like watercolors and sometimes like photographs. She is inspired by the beauty of the Central Oregon Coast and is often challenged to capture subjects photographed by her husband, Richard. They have lived near Ona Beach in Seal Rock for more than a decade after retiring and building their dream home. LaFond said her passion for colored pencil art is growing daily and that she feels as though an array of colored pencils stands like a bouquet awaiting her as she begins each picture. Cha is a member of the Yaquina Art Association Photographers and loves capturing landscapes through photography. His latest works capture the Aurora Borealis on the
