CPAC to address Territorial Sea Plan By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun PACIFIC CITY — If waking up to the unspoiled beauty of the ocean’s horizon is your morning wake-up call, take heed — if preliminary maps developed by the State of Oregon hold any water, there could soon be wave energy development devices to look at, too. Oregon is currently undergoing a process that will establish a planning process for Oregon’s territorial sea, which extends three-miles seaward. The impetus for this effort is the proliferation of wave energy proposals that the state is weighing. To help paint a picture of this public process and the coming public forums to address the issue, the Pacific City-Woods Community Planning Advisory Committee will present a primer on the Territorial Sea Plan Amendment process during its monthly meeting Monday, Jan. 16 at Kiawanda Community Center, 34600 Cape Kiwanda Drive, starting at 6:30 p.m. A similar presentation will occur at the Pacific City-Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce monthly lunch meeting on Feb. 7. In addition, a series Territorial Sea Plan Working Group public work sessions will be held in Portland and at various locations along the Oregon Coast starting Feb. 2. Amongst those will be a Mrach 6, 5:30 p.m. meeting at the Kiawanda Community Center in Pacific City. CPAC chair Dave Yamamoto said the primer is intended to get people up to speed on what a territorial sea plan is and why it needs to be amended for ocean energy projects in advance of public meetings, which are expected to transpire in

February or early March. Though the preliminary maps do draw a big open area between Pacific City and Neskowin, Yamamoto said that is because fishermen here were hesitant to release their fishing maps to the working group. “Early on in the process, the working group tried to engage the fishing industry. They got buy-in from roughly half of the fishing industry.” The other half? Not so much. The Dorymen’s Association is one of those that voted to retain their maps. All of that, however, changed recently when the Association decided to release the maps. Though the working group rebuffed the new information saying that the maps had not been vetted by the appropriate agencies, the Ocean Policy Advisory Council, a group that directs the working group, had a much more positive response. “We have very high hopes that the open area off Pacific City and Neskowin is going to go away or at least be reduced,” said Yamamoto. For those opposing opening up the waters off of Pacific City to wave energy projects, there is an ace in the sleeve — Tillamook County Commissioner Tim Josi. As both chair of the Territorial Sea Advisory Committee and a member of the Land Conservation and Development Commission, he commands a certain respect. “He is the 800-pound gorilla at all these meetings. He is a member of LCDC ‑— the group that is going to make the ultimate decision,” said Yamamoto. “When Tim Josi says something at these meetings people listen. We’re very fortunate to have him in the position he is in.”

Nestucca Fire to debut scholarship program BEAVER — Signing up to be a resident volunteer at the Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District became just a little bit more lucrative to those interested in starting a career in the fire service. At Nestucca Fire’s Jan. 11 monthly meeting, the board voted to institute a $1,500 annual scholarship ($500 per term) for those volunteers living in one of the districts nine fire hall resident quarters. Funds for the program will come out of the $18,000 budgeted for training. “We have to be competitive with the other programs that are out there,” said Fire Chief Kris Weiland. “Most of the programs have some kind of stipend (or) some kind of credit for college so there’s a financial benefit.” Because the district has used only $4,500 of the $18,000 for the July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012 budget calendar, Weiland says there is sufficient funds to pay for the program in both Winter and Spring terms. He also said the district will shape

future budgets around the funding of the scholarships. Planning for the next year’s budget cycle is expected to begin later this month. He said the scholarship option was chosen because by the district paying the college directly they are able to avoid making residents paid employees with all the additional costs that would entail. Residents must maintain a 2.5 grade point average and six credits of Fire Science or EMS classes to be eligible. Nestucca’s resident program was designed with the idea that in a nearly all-volunteer district, it’s of crucial importance to keep as many volunteers nearby and ready for action as possible. It is also expected to reap a better insurance rating, which means more economical rates for residents. The district hopes to up its volunteer residents to 12 once the Hebo Fire Station is built. For more information, call Nestucca Fire at 503-965-6014.

Traylor resigns, district seeks replacement BEAVER — The Nestucca Fire Board of Directors announced the resignation of board member Stephen Traylor at the group’s Jan. 11 meeting. In a letter dated Dec. 20, 2011, Traylor stated that effective Dec. 21 he was resigning for medical and personal reasons. To fill Traylor’s position, the board is accepting applications through Jan. 30 at 5 p.m. Applicants for the voluntary position must be registered voters in the State of Oregon and own property within the district’s boundaries. Board members expect to appoint a replace-

ment at their next meeting on Feb. 7. Though the term of the vacated position doesn’t expire until June 2015, the appointee will have to seek election in May 2013 to fill out the balance of the term. Individuals interested in applying for the open position should submit a letter of interest and resume to Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District, Attention: Ken Crowe, P.O. Box 189, Cloverdale, OR 97112 or email the information to Fire Chief Kris Weiland at: kweiland@nrfpd. com.

CLOVERDALE — Just one final hurdle remains for Tillamook County to secure nearly $260,000 worth of funding to build a wayside and park-and-ride in downtown Cloverdale. The Oregon Department of Transportation has selected the $286,420 project as one of 24 finalists. Up for grabs is $21.5 million in flexible funds grant awards. The county applied for ODOT’s Flexible Funds Program on Oct. 20 and is seeking $253,903 for the project. The remainder of the funds — in excess of $32,000 — for the proposed Noble Wayside will come from the County and its partners, which include the Cloverdale Committee of the Pacific City-Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce, the Tillamook Transportation District and a variety of local businesses who have already committed funds and resources. The project is one that Cloverdale business owners have dreamed of for more than 10 years, but have lacked the money to make it all happen. But by adding bus shelters through a partnership with Tillamook Transportation District, Tillamook County was able to make a compelling case to ODOT for the grant. A final decision will be made following a Feb. 15 hearing in Salem. There are also 11 alternates that could be selected should sufficient reason to supplant one of them come forth during the meeting. Tillamook County Commissioner Mark Labhart said he will attend the meeting to support the grant proposal. To date, others scheduled to attend include Paul Levesque, director of contracts, facilities and fleet for Tillamook County; Shirley Kalkoven, chair of the North West Area Commission on Transportation; longtime supporter Frank Brawner; and an unnamed representative from the Tillamook Transportation District. “At this point we can be very optimistic of the award,” said Levesque. The proposed development would include a wayside featuring restrooms, parking, river access, picnic benches and a public fishing platform — a development that Cloverdale business owners have dreamed of for more than 10 years. If the grant is awarded, Cloverdale could have its new wayside and park and ride sometime in 2013.

The Tillamook Estuaries Partnership is hosting a photo contest aimed at soliciting images to be used for for TEP’s forthcoming water trail guide to the Nestucca, Neskowin, and Sandlake watersheds. Deadline for submission is Feb. 29.

Click your way to the cover PACIFIC CITY — Shutterbugs with a love of capturing the beauty of the waters in and around Pacific City are invited to share their striking images of these playgrounds for kayakers and canoeists with the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership for a photo contest aimed at soliciting images to be used for for TEP’s forthcoming water trail guide to the Nestucca, Neskowin, and Sandlake watersheds. Deadline for submission is Feb. 29. The grand prize winner’s photo will be used for the cover art. The winning artwork will be chosen by a panel of local judges. The subject matter should incorporate the water as this will be the cover of the upcoming Nestucca/

Neskowin/Sand Lake Estuary Water Trail Guidebook. Second- and thirdplace entries will be used in the publication’s inside pages. While the Tillamook Bay and Nehalem Water Trail Guidebooks both feature gorgeous professional cover shots of iconic regional scenery, organizers say that on-the-water exploration of south county unearthed miles of gorgeous scenery that inspired them to open the opportunity to the public. Artists of all ages are invited to submit their entries electronically accompanied by the official entry form, available online at www. or by calling Tillamook Estuaries Partnership at (503) 322-2222. The NNSL Water Trail Guidebook

is shaping up to include information about local history, the USFWS wildlife refuge, local habitat restoration efforts, and safety information as well as comprehensive maps of the watersheds; draft maps are currently available for public review on the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership website. 2012 will be a busy year for the project — because public input and participation is the foundation for the guidebooks, there will be regular meetings and an On-The-Water Speaker Series to keep the conversations going as the final draft comes together in preparation for the 2013 printing. The next meeting is Tuesday, Jan. 17, 7 p.m. at the Kiawanda Community Center, 34600 Cape Kiwanda Drive, Pacific City.

Tickets available for ‘Your Heart’s Desire’ PACIFIC CITY — Community Arts Project’s “Your Heart’s Desire: A Celebration of Chocolate, Wine, and Art” will return to the Kiawanda Community Center in Pacific City on Saturday, Feb 11, noon-10 p.m. Tickets are now available for this fundraising event for CAP’s Art Literacy Program, which serves Nestucca Valley Elementary and Garibaldi Grade School.

A new weapon in the arsenal By PAT GEFRE for the Sun The Girdle Bug from Hell! More appropriately Lambroughton’s pattern Girdle Bug from Hell. Most fly fishermen know what this is — most bait and tackle fishermen have never heard of it. It’s a very unusual fly available in bright pink, bright orange or bright cerise. It has an elongated body with legs, antennae, and a tail, and — except for the colors — it resembles some kind of insect that floats or swims. Designed to attract steelhead, the bright colors also make them more visible in winter water that is always a little off color (not clear). So recently tackle-and-bait fishermen have discovered the Girdle Bug and have taken a page from the fly fisherman’s handbook. With a little adaptation, the Girdle Bug has become another tool in the bait fisherman’s arsenal. Normally fly fishermen would use this fly with a sink tip line to get it under the surface. Tackle guys are clamping a removable split shot above the fly and floating them under a bobber, with a certain degree of success. Add a little scent, like shrimp oil and they become even more deadly. Folks are always asking me what’s new in the tackle world and even though this is a concept fly fisherman have used for years, it is a new concept to tackle fishermen.    Since the rains a couple of weeks ago, steelhead fishing in the Nestucca and Three Rivers has been just short of incredible for this time of year. Normally January is a little slow for steelhead fishing, with the early Three Rivers run waning and the start of the native and broodstock program a few weeks away. Throw in for good measure that the Nestucca River is usually in the throes of some type of flooding that can last for weeks. Not this year! This year, so far, conditions have been vastly different. The native and broodstock steelhead have shown up early — and more importantly — the weather and

the Nestucca River couldn’t have been more cooperative. With just enough rains to get the river levels fishable and steelhead moving into the system, the Nestucca has managed itself at perfect levels and color most all of this early season. The result has been some of the best January fishing for steelhead in recent memory. Better river conditions equal more fishing time and more opportunities. Though more native steelhead than hatchery fish are being caught, the numbers of retainable fin-clipped hatchery fish have been good enough to keep fishermen’s interest. It only gets better from here. February and March are the top months for winter steelhead and the long range forecasts are looking favorable for a continued good fishery. February and March should see more hatchery steelhead showing up and being caught. One of the aspects of this fishery that fisherman can appreciate is the larger size steelhead. The early Three Rivers run consists of smaller steelhead ranging in size from four to eight pounds. The native and broodstock steelhead range in size from eight to 20 pounds with most averaging 10 to 12 pounds. Fourteen to eighteen pounders are not uncommon and every once in a while one will go 20plus pounds. Quite a difference from the early fish that are affectionately labeled the Three Rivers dinks. The Nestucca River is starting to get a little low, but it would appear that more rains are on the way for next week. Hopefully the river will continue to maintain good fishing levels and we will see this fishery sail into the best months unabated.

A craftsman at the helm Terry Learned has been building dories for fishermen in Pacific City and beyond since 1974 By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun PACIFIC CITY — As a high schooler, Terry Learned built his first dory in the fall of 1967. It’s a craft that he’s stuck with and excelled at as his most recent creation — dory number 81 — attests to. Very much a family affair, Learned recounts that his dad Victor built his first dory — a double-ender — in 1957. By 1974, the pair were building boats together as a commercial enterprise. Today, Learned dories are 22-foot crafts (actual 21-feet, 3-inches) with a 5 ½-foot flat bottom. They have an 8-foot beam. This size represents a change from the mid 70s when boats had a 5-foot flat bottom and was in response to a customer request in 1979. “It’s the best one for what everybody fishes here,” he says. Learned says that the flat bottom design of the dories make for a safe boat and one that doesn’t veer off course when you hit the rough stuff. “If the north wind comes up and its just howling and you start running back with the wind and you go over a great big whitecap and you come down off of it and dive into the one that’s ahead of it, the boat will not broach,” he said. “It will just hit the water, the spray will fly and it will just keep going straight.” The solid handling also shows its colors surmounting the surf. “If you happen to jump over a wave coming to the beach, it doesn’t swing left or right —you’ll just keep going straight and that’s a definite advantage,” Learned said. Built entirely out of marine-grade Douglas Fir plywood for the hull and old growth stock for the ribs, the construction of a Learned dory remains a family affair. He enlists the help of daughter Annie and Pam when it comes time to start driving nails. He built boats with Victor until he passed away in 1998. “Now it’s just me and the daughters,” he said. “They help several days

With dory number 81 in the books, Terry Learned is continuing to crank out feature-laden boats for fishermen at Cape Kiwanda. Learned has been building his own brand of dories for fishermen far and wide since 1974. Learned’s Boat Shop is located at 34900 Resort Drive between Pacific City and Cloverdale. For more information, visit or call 503801-4714. on a boat like this with major nailing. It really saves my shoulders.” By leveraging family labor and committing to quality construction, Learned is able to stand tall when he speaks of his boats and their longevity. Features include a 20-gallon gas tank underneath front seating, compact motor wells for today’s powerful four-stoke motors, watertight consoles with handrails and adjacent fish box, a covered deck and gear trays that are integrated into the boat’s hull. Base cost of a Learned dory is $9,000. Finishing the boat in fiberglass, purchasing the motor and outfitting it with electronics can triple the investment. “They’re all working as far as I know,” he said. “Dad and I decided

years ago that if were going to build a boat, we’re going to overbuild it. We build them tougher and thicker. They should last a person and they do. We knew what the weaknesses were of different dories because when people first started building square sterns everybody put them out fast and they were lightweight and pretty soon nails were coming through the side and things were breaking. We just decided we didn’t want that to happen.” Learned dories have and are continuing to serve fishermen near and far. In 1983, Terry and Victor built three 24foot boats rigged with cabins, hydraulic power and custom-built halibut long line pullers for a customer operating out of St. Paul Island in the middle of

the Bering Sea. Learned recently learned from one of the original purchaser that the dories started a multi-million dollar halibut fishery there. “(Dad and I) knew what we wanted. We wanted something that looked good and was functional. Fortunately, we were able to work the boat towards both ends of it. (Our dories) will run with the chop and they’ll go through the surf either coming or going. We just really came up with a boat that worked good and every customer that gets one says that.” Learned’s Boat Shop is located at 34900 Resort Drive between Pacific City and Cloverdale.

There is a 4-H enrollment fee for 4-H members of $17 if paid by Jan. 31 or $22 for enrollments Feb. 1 or later. The 4-H enrollment fee includes a state enrollment fee and accident insurance; need-based financial assistance is available. Re-enrollment in 4-H is required every year for both 4-H members and leaders. Accident insurance for members and leaders and OSU tort liability expired on Sept. 30 for those members and leaders who are not re-enrolled for the current year. Enrollment materials were mailed to all 4-H families in September and are available on the OSU Extension Service-Tillamook County website: tillamook/4h/4h-forms. Students in grades 4 through 12 are eligible to

join 4-H project clubs. Members may enroll in a club or as an independent member.

In addition to learning skills in their chosen project(s), members learn leadership skills and contribute to their community. Currently the 4-H program is looking for new 4-H leaders in a variety of 4-H projects especially clothing, foods, gardening, photography, and Cloverbuds (grades K-3). The process for becoming a 4-H leader is simple and must be completed before a leader may enroll in the 4-H program.  For more information about 4-H, contact Joy or Nancy at the OSU Extension Service in Tillamook County, 503-842-3433.

said. “There were 100 some in just the band. Playing in such a big group was cool. You would see instruments you maybe haven’t seen before.” She also delighted in the experience of playing in a large performance hall. “The hall when filled with people bounces music off walls better and creates an amazing sound that’s just incredible,” she said. “My favorite song we played was called the ‘Drunken Sailor.’ It was so fun. It was a totally different sound playing with a bunch of different people you don’t know. I definitely want to go again.”

TACOMA, Wash. — It was tunes in Tacoma when two high achieving Nestucca High School band members got the chance to take their talents to the next level during the weekend of Jan. 6-7 at Pacific Lutheran University. Juniors Mackenzie Cook and Lauren Morris were nominated by band director Kathleen Serven and selected by PLU for the annual performance of Northwest High School Honor Bands. The duo joined approximately 250 musicians from Idaho, Oregon and Washington for the annual event directed by Edwin Powell. There they were tasked auditioning for band placement and learning new music on Friday and Saturday in time for a Saturday night concert. “It’s a pretty intense experience but really great for the kids,” said Serven. “They got to work with some really great musicians from across the Northwest. I was very proud of both of them.” This year marked the second straight year that Cook has attended. In her first time at the event Morris came away inspired. “I’m used to being in a small band but this band was huge,” she

There’s magic in the music By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun BEAVER — For singer-songwriter Eric Sappington, music can be the road to a better tomorrow and it’s a path he hopes to share with folk music lovers throughout the community on Saturday, Jan. 21, when he takes to the stage of The Mercantile for a 7 p.m. concert. “Playing live is one of the greatest feeling in the world,” he says. “For that amount of time, everybody is on the same page. You can really change people’s lives by music.” Dubbed, “Fabulous Folk,” by organizer Fred Bassett, who runs Folk Fellowship, an organization that seeks to bring folk talent of all types to the area, the evening will start off with Bassett’s own trio, Shagbark Trio, which also features the musical talents of drummer Jim Loughrie and bassist Clint Smith. In addition to the slate of original folk tunes by both groups, the Saturday performance will also feature a puppet show/comedy routine with a bit of political satire thrown in for good measure. Though the concert is just the second hosted at Folk Fellowship’s new venue at The Mercantile, 24747 Highway 101 South, Beaver, Bassett has big dreams — dreams that got a boost when their first event on Dec. 17 played to a packed house. “We are absolutely bursting with enthusiasm because of the turnout and response to our last show,” he said. “We have people writing us daily who are enthralled and want to be involved. It’s just been way beyond our dreams (yet) exactly what we hoped for.” Originally from the Midwest, Sappington has called Tillamook County home for the last 15 years. The Oceanside resident splits his time between performing locally and in Portland, a carpentry career, and his work with Newport’s Oregon Coast Children’s Theater. Though for the bulk of his musical career, he and his wife Molly formed the dynamic duo Mercury Coast, the couple has taken a hiatus from touring together so they could more easily spend time with their two young children. Though he still pulls material from the three CDs the couple released between 1999 and 2008, the last five years Sappington has been performing as a solo act. Drawing inspiration from all over the map — including the likes of Elvis and the sounds of the 60s — he says his sound boils down to what he describes as “ambient folk music.” “We have a mellow side and a spiritual side that creates ambiance,” he says. “We try to create a lot of ambiance in what were doing both vocally and sonically.” Though many of his fans have likened his music to the flavor of the day — whether that be Dylan or Elvis — a night with Sappington often reveals a more eclectic ride. “I’m mainly inspired just by anybody that writes a great melody and has longevity to their music — something you can listen to a million times. I try to keep an open slate. Whatever filters through my mind, I hope it comes through in the music that I’m putting out.” That same open mind also translates to his live

performances. “I’m a passion driven artist for sure,” he says. “I work off other people’s feelings. Every show I go in with the same attitude, and I give people everything I have. The (audience of) two people need to enjoy as well as (the audience of) 50. I really read off the audience and what they’re getting out of it. I try to get in touch with what the audience feels.” Doors will open at 6 p.m. with refreshments.

those interested in attending reserve their spot by making their donations ahead of time. Call 503-398-5720 to make arrangements. Bassett says that while he’s excited about the show, there’s much more to come. “We’re just scratching the surface,” he said. “You’re just not going to see anything like this anywhere else. It’s not just sitting in a coffee house listening to someone play music. It’s a true variety show — people are going to be surprised with everything we do.”

An art reception and silent auction at Stimulus Café on Friday, Jan. 27 seeks to raise funds to purchse new swings and other playground equipment for Neskowin Valley School. For more information, call 503-9654661.

Reception to showcase NVS student artists Neskowin — A reception and fundraiser will be held Friday, Jan. 27 from 4-6 p.m. at Stimulus Café in Pacific City showcasing artwork by students of Neskowin Valley School and benefiting the school’s playground fund. The reception will include a small silent auction featuring hotel stays, certificates to the school’s Friday School classes and Summer Day Camps, and prized goods from local businesses. Coffee, hot chocolate and cookies will be provided by Stimulus Café, with wine and beer donated by the Pelican Pub and Brewery. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the founding of Neskowin Valley School. As part of a larger fundraising campaign during the anniversary, the school received a special donation to revive its aging playground. The donation requires the school to raise $10,000 in matching funds. Some of the equipment at the school dates to 1978 and includes a merry-go-round from the original Neskowin School. New swings and other play equipment will be added and the merry-goround restored.   The arts are central to education at NVS. One of the school’s co-founders, Margot Voorhies Thompson, is a visual artist, and comprehensive arts education, including music and drama, has always been fundamental to the school’s mission.

“The arts are vital in our goal to develop the whole child,” says NVS Head of School Julie Fiedler, herself a ceramics artist and painter. “Research shows that arts education contributes to problem-solving, academic achievement, social and emotional development and community engagement.” NVS invites a series of artists to visit the school each year, bringing a variety of approaches and materials to the students--paintings from fall classes with artist Linda Livingston will be at the show. Art projects are also integrated into daily classroom work, and much of the show’s work comes from project units in science, math and history. Vegetable paintings, shadowboxes, cartoon books and collage salmon, along with text describing student projects, are on display starting January 11. “Our teachers design art projects that are openended and invite exploration, decision-making, and self-expression,” Fiedler explains. “It’s not a cookie-cutter approach, and it requires students to take risks. That kind of challenge engages them and ultimately makes them care a lot about what they are doing.” Neskowin Valley School is a preschool-8th grade independent school founded in South Tillamook County in 1972.

Looking to the future Nestucca Valley School District to seek public input during upcoming visioning process

events, the idea is to target forums at each user group. “The forum isn’t going to be a place where any synthesis occurs or any conclusions reached. It’s just simply the opportunity to have everyone who wants to have a say.” While Hedrick emphasized that she wants as much public input as possible, the eventual decision will not necessarily be a popular vote — and not a decision that’s up to her either. “The community has to understand that the board is asking for their input and advice, but the board makes the decision and even if 15 people want a four-day week and only one person wants a five-day week the board may decide to go on a five-day week. These folks are the legally elected authority of the school district.” Wise said she is looking forward to the challenge of bringing the needs of the district and the desires of the community together as the school and its board seeks what’s best in the years ahead. “As a facilitator, my belief is if I get the right stakeholders in room, the solution is there too,” said Wise. “I will guide you in creating goals and priorities and get you where you want to go.” But even before the forum, there will be opportunities for the community, staff and students to share their thoughts. Hedrick said she hopes to have surveys — available both online and in paper form — available by Feb. 1. The deadline for receipt of the survey will be March 23. Following the community forums will be a series of committee meetings between March 24 and April 26 designed to synthesize the input and formulate recommendations. Board discussion will occur on May 14 and again on June 14, when final adoptions are scheduled to be made.

By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun CLOVERDALE — You may not hold a crystal ball, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have valuable insight to offer Nestucca Valley School District as they wrestle with what the future holds for the K-12 program. The district’s board of directors launched a visioning process at their Dec. 9 meeting that they hope will instruct them on key issues such as a four vs. five day school week, the future of the Beaver Education Building (former middle school) and if a reconfiguration of classrooms is in order. Helping the district to muddle through the process will be Verna Wise, who will serve as an independent moderator for the vetting process. Wise is the director of Ophelia’s Place in Eugene and a facilitator in education initiatives. She told the board that it is her goal to enable a process where all sides are heard. A key venue for this solicitation of opinions will be on Feb. 27 at the Kiawanda Community Center when she will lead a community forum scheduled to start at 6 p.m. There will also be a staff forum on March 2, 8-10 a.m. Superintendent Kathryn Hedrick said that while everyone is welcome at any of these

‘Cats face crucial stretch By DEE MOORE for the Sun CLOVERDALE — The holidays may distract the best of us, but when you are in the middle of basketball season that diversion can make or break the season and a team’s chance to get into the playoffs. And while the Christmas break is a thing of the past, it’s the present that matters. For the Nestucca Bobcats’ the next two weeks will make or break their chance to go to district. “We’ve hit a bit of a rough stretch in the season,” said varsity coach Jim Kiser. “The playoff situation for us is muddled at the moment. We are in the middle of the pack in the league and we have a really important next two weeks of basketball.” According to Kiser, the team will be playing “some of the best teams in the league” and to make the playoffs they will “need to step up” their game a little more if they expect to make it there this year. “We are dealing with a lot of bumps and bruises and we need to get rested and healthy again — nothing too serious though,” he added. The team went to Faith Bible Tuesday and lost 3924. “We came out and played badly. Offensively we had no patience, turned the ball over more times than I can count and probably shot about 20 percent from the field. They played good defense on us but we definitely should have competed a little more than we did,” Kiser said. Looking back over the holidays, Kiser can see his team’s strengths and weakness. He is playing to the one and trying to overcome the other. His success depends

on him getting his team to perform like a well-oiled machine again. When the team played Knappa there were back-toback games and that made it tough. Nestucca lost 54-51. “We had no energy in the first half. It killed us,” he said. “We played a great second half — maybe the best basketball we’ve played all year — but we couldn’t quite get over the hump. Nick Ahn again led us with 21 points and Taylor Hulburt came off the bench and scored 19.” At Delphian the team won 48-40. According to Kiser, the boys did a great job of keeping their composure and limiting turnovers. The team played well maximizing their offensive and defensive games. “They made some shots I didn’t really expect them to make — and found a way to get a big road win. Nick Ahn had 19 points and Mike Tipton had 18.” At the Gervais tournament, the ‘Cats were off their game and didn’t play well according to Kiser. “Gervais is big and physical which caused us a lot of problems. They beat us 63-33.” The next day the team played Gaston with similar results. “We didn’t play great. The Christmas break had the boys out of their routine and it was pretty obvious,” he said. The final score was Gaston 68, Nestucca 34. But now that the break is over and the team is having regular practices and games things will be different when they play Gaston next according to the coach. “I really think we can play with them when we see them in a week,” he said. The team played Amity just before Christmas and “got beat soundly” 61-36, the coach said. “We came out flat and uninspired and turned the

Amity is a little bigger school than us and we ran into a team that had a lot of big fast kids and it gave us fits. We didn’t rebound all that well and Amity shot the ball really well on us,” he said.

Lady ‘Cats struggle, hope for better next year By DEE MOORE for the Sun CLOVERDALE — It’s been a long hard road this season for the Lady ‘Cats basketball team. They are a very young team leaning on the experience of a few returning seniors. With two injuries before they reached the midway point of the season, varsity coach B.J. Chatelain realizes that the team is now just in training for next year. “Although this (the injuries) hurts us, it does give some of the other girls more playing time and that will only help in the future.,” he said. “We are pretty much out of the playoff picture. Our girls are young and inexperienced. We only have one girl who started last year and another who played some on varsity, the rest are sophomores and a couple of freshman. Tuesday, Jan. 10, the team played at Faith Bible where according to Chat-

elain the girls were sluggish when they hit the court. “After a long bus ride we came out flat and slow. Our usual quickness wasn’t there and the opposition made some open shots and put us in an early hole 5-12 at the end of the first quarter,” Chatelain said. The second quarter was a repeat of the first with Faith Bible easily scoring basket after basket. The ‘Cats went into the half down 8-22. “With some soul searching and some butt chewing in the locker room, we came out hard and stopped them (from scoring for) the rest of the game as they only scored a total of 6 points.” The problem was Nestucca couldn’t score either and ended up losing 19-28. Monica Chatelain was high scorer with 7. “The team unity is not there yet,” he said. “They play hard the whole game and never give up and they are improving.”

Jan. 6, Knappa 56, Nestucca 22 “Solano was not available for this game and that hurt our guard play and rotation,” said Chatelain. “Jasmine Boisa led the team with 13 points and did an outstanding job as she ran and hustled all over the floor. “We couldn’t make a basket from anywhere.” Jan. 5, Delphian 41, Nestucca 44 “We jumped out to a great first quarter lead 19-6 on our pressing and hustling after the ball. The rest of the game was entertaining to say the least,” he said. The team saw more foul problems during this game. “We had to finish the remaining 4 minutes of the game with only 4 girls on the floor and held on for a 3-point win,” the coach said. “Sophia Solano was high scorer with 18 points.” Dec. 27, Gervais Tournament The team lost both games of the tournament, 51-19 and 65-34.

hurt the team the most. “The second game was by far the best game offensively we played,” Chatelain said. “We kind of ran out of gas having only 7 players compared with their 14.” Kelly Olson led with 12 points, Jasmine Boisa and Sophia Solano both had 9 apiece.” Dec. 20, Amity 76, Nestucca 22 “(They) are a very fast team and we had trouble matching their speed and intensity,” said Chatelain. As soon as we had the rebound they were already down the court and we couldn’t catch up and they had half of their points on layins. Sophia Solano was leading scorer with 9 and Jasmine had 7.” Dec. 16, Neakahnie 38, Nestucca 30 Though an evenly matched game until the third quarter, fouls again troubled the team. “Monica Chatelain did a really good job limiting the other team’s lead shooter,” said Chatelain. Sophia was the leading scorer with 13; Jasmine Bosia added 7 and Chatelain had 6.
