THE TILLAMOOK COUNTY WATER TRAIL — which includes paddling opportunities on the Nestucca River — is one of 54 trails recognized by the National Recreation Trails program.
A Trail of Significance Tillamook County Water Trail receives National Recreation Trail designation
Writer shares secrets for growing heathers The public is invited to the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum’s next installment of its Great Speaker Series on Saturday, July 14, when they will learn ways for growing a successful heather garden on the coast from author Ella May T. Wulff. Wulff, who coauthored “Gardening with Hardy Heathers” with David Small, will present “Gardening with Heathers” at the museum starting at 1 p.m. She purchased her first heather plant from the Philadelphia Flower Show when she was a teenager and planted it in her parents’ garden. Wulff studied botany at Smith College and received
a master’s degree in marine biology from the College of William and Mary in Virginia. She also studied landscape architecture at Oregon State University. Her interest in heathers was renewed in the 1980s when she moved into her own home and joined the North American Heather Society. She served as the society’s president from 2001 through 2004. Wulff has published several articles for national gardening magazines and has created a hillside heather garden outside of Corvallis, Ore.

and the Neskowin Creek watershed, is near the final review stage and publication will occur later this year. TEP’s efforts will then shift to the concluding guidebook in the series, which encompasses Netarts Bay. TEP Water Trails coordinator Julie Chick says that TEP is honored to have the Tillamook County Water Trail designated at this level and looks forward to the new partnership with American Trails, which hosts the NRT program for the National Park Service. The NRT’s program goal is to promote the use and care of existing trails and stimulate the development of new trails to create a national network of trails. The NRT recognition comes with an array of benefits, including promotion, technical assistance, networking and access to funding. For more information about the designation, to request the Nehalem and Tillamook guidebooks or to provide comments on the Nestucca, Neskowin and Sand Lake guidebook, visit the TEP website at www. tbnep.org or call the TEP office at 503-322-2222.

he National Recreation Trails program named the Tillamook County Water Trail — which includes the Nestucca and Little Nestucca Rivers, as well as the Sand Lake Estuary and the Neskowin Watershed — as one of 54 trails recognized by the program for exemplary trails of local and regional significance. Not only is the TCWT the only Oregon trail recognized this year, it is also the only water trail singled out nationwide. TEP will hold a National Recreational Trail celebration ceremony on Aug. 17 in Pacific City. “We’re pretty excited,” said Claudine Rehn, TEP accounting manager. “This is the first year they opened up water trails for this national trail recognition.” Facilitated by the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership, the TCWT consists of 250 miles of navigable waters for non-motorized enthusiasts, including five estuaries. Two of these estuary systems, Nehalem and Tillamook Bay, are already featured in full-color guidebooks produced by TEP.

TILLAMOOK COUNTY’S deteriorating roads are likely to get a shot in the arm — at least in the short term — as Congress is expected to pass a transportation package that includes a one-year extension of federal forest payments, which would mean an additional $700,000 for the Tillamook County’s road budget.
A Funding Reprieve Senate expected to extend forest payments, will boost county road budget
t press time, congress was expected to pass a transportation package that includes a one-year extension of federal forest payments and the Payments in Lieu of Taxes. Oregon Congressmen Peter DeFazio and Greg Walden have confirmed the inclusion of federal forest payments in the transportation package Congress will vote on June 28 and 29 before going home for a week-long Fourth of July recess. For Tillamook County, the inclusion of the federal forest payments means an additional $702,000 for county roads, said Tillamook County Commissioner Mark Labhart. That figure works out to 39 percent of what the county received in 2008, but slightly up from the $628,000 that was part of its budget during the July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012 funding cycle. The county approved a $4.8 million budget for the July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013 fiscal year on June 13. Labhart said that if the reauthorization is approved as expected, the county will add the $700,000 in additional funds to the roads budget. Despite the change, he said that
the additional funds are not enough to fix our roads. Prior to the news, the county planned no new paving projects outside of ones paid for by grants for the upcoming year, though fixing potholes was still on the agenda. “We’re still in the same boat,” said Labhart. “We’re barely hanging on.” He added that while he is pleased with the promise of the funds, he said it isn’t a long-term fix as it is just a oneyear reauthorization of the funds. The inclusion of federal forest payments has been high on county commissioners’ radar for some time. Labhart said commissioners have been vigilant in communicating the need with their congressmen and senators. “I give a huge amount of credit to Senator Ron Wyden and (Oregon Congressman) Peter DeFazio for making sure this got through,” he said. Senator Ron Wyden managed to get the reauthorization included in the Senate version of the transportation bill in March and the House-Senate conference committee kept it in the final package. Congressman DeFazio is a member of that conference committee along with
Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenhauer. Congressman Walden worked with the Republican leadership to secure the reauthorization. “Oregon’s Congressional delegation worked tirelessly for the reauthorization of federal forest payments,” Mike McArthur, executive director of the Association of Oregon Counties said. “Their hard work will help Oregon counties facing an unprecedented financial crisis to maintain some vital public services while they work on crafting a long-term solution with federal and state partners,” McArthur added. The one-year extension means just under $100 million for Oregon county roads, law enforcement and schools. Checks for those payments will not reach counties until late this year or early 2013. The reauthorization of federal forest payments in the transportation package is approximately 39 percent of the 2008 payment at the height of the program. “This is a notable achievement given the difficult budget climate in Washington, D.C. right now,” McArthur said, “but unfortunately Oregon counties still face a daunting fiscal situation.”

NVCA seeks public input for recreational plan By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun
reliminary plans have been drafted, potential amenities reviewed and developmental concerns discussed, but before the Nestucca Valley Community Alliance moves forward on developing plans for a new recreational area on the grounds of Tillamook Lightwave’s Cable Landing Station located just east of Cape Kiwanda, they want to hear from you. NVCA will make a presentation to the Pacific CityWoods Community Planning Advisory Committee on July 16, during which public input will be encouraged. The meeting starts at 10:30 a.m. at Pacific Coast Bible Church. The group will present four conceptual drawings that include a variety of elements including a playground, picnic tables, amphitheater, sports areas, interpretative center, classroom and office space and — in the case of the rendering submitted by Dreamland Skateparks — an area for skateboarders. Additional preliminary drawings also include two proposals submitted by developer John DeJong and one submitted by local surveyor Doug Kellow. “These are just ideas,” says NVCA Chair Gloria Scullin. “ We haven’t finalized anything yet. We do
need feedback from the public.” Scullin says she hopes the meeting will go a long way towards allaying any fears adjacent landowners and residents have, as well as provide an opportunity for the community to chip in with features they feel would be important to the development. She cited landscaping designed to minimize noise as one of NVCA’s goals. The groups is also planning a July 10 meeting with Tillamook County planners in which they hope to determine any code roadblocks they’ll need to overcome as they proceed towards development. NVCA hopes to make a final decision on the elements to be included at its July 18 board meeting. Whatever plans NVCA — with your help — eventually decides on there is a caveat. Because TLW Credit Union is servicing Tillamook Lightwave’s loan on the property, they will have ultimate say on what can be developed and when. Previous discussions have hinted that they may require a certain amount of loan payoff prior to significant development to protect their interest should Tillamook Lightwave default on the loan. For more information on NVCA’s recreational plans, visit www.nestucca.org. For details on the Pacific City-Woods CPAC’s upcoming meeting, visit www. pacificcitywoodscpac.org.

TILLAMOOK ESTUARIES PARTNERSHIP is hosting a kayak fishing workshop led by Ron Sauber of Groundswell Kayak Fishing on Friday, July 13. Call 503-322-2222 to have your name put on a waiting list.
Poles and Paddles TEP to host July 13 kayak fishing workshop on Nestucca River
o you like kayaking? Enjoy the taste of fresh caught salmon? Why not combine the two and catch your own? Join Tillamook Estuaries Partnership’s guest, Ron Sauber, of Groundswell Kayak Fishing, for a paddle down the Nestucca River on Friday, July 13 and learn the basics of how to put a tasty coastal salmon on your dinner table. The 10 a.m-2 p.m. paddle embarks at the Cloverdale public boat ramp and will travel to Pacific City. There is a $4 launch fee, but no participation charge. Participants do need to pre-register by calling TEP at 503-322-2222. Though the trip was filled at press time, TEP is maintaining a waiting list. Although the salmon won’t be around until late
summer/early fall (so there is no need for a fishing license as participants won’t be actively fishing), the trip promises kayaking and fishing enthusiasts a the day floating down the river while going over kayak fishing basics. Participants will also learn how these fundamentals can be applied to the many coastal rivers up and down the Oregon Coast. Topics include outfitting your kayak for salmon fishing, proper gear and lure selection and basic fishing techniques. Paddlers will need to supply their own kayak, personal floatation device, paddle and their favorite paddling accessories. Sauber is providing fishing gear for participants to practice technique. Those with their own fishing gear are welcome to bring it along.

tep into Pat Sears’ graceful seaside garden for an afternoon of tea and savories and art and music, too, when the Esther Milne Living Memorial Garden Tea returns for the 18th year, Saturday, July 14, 1-4 p.m. This year’s event marks the final bow for the longtime fundraiser for the Esther Milne Scholarship Fund. Starting next year, organizers will be transitioning to a new format, supporting the Esther Milne, Pat Sears Scholarship Endowment fund at Tillamook Bay Community College. “It’s bittersweet,” says Pat Sears about the final event. “I hate to give it up, but there’s a time to gracefully make a change.” The main attraction of the event is Sears’ renowned garden that overlooks the Pacific. She says that though weather has meant a challenging gardening year, she expects her much loved dogwood tree, a passel of perennials and fabulous fuchsias and more to be in full bloom. But that’s just the start for this annual event that Sears hails as a perfect opportunity to relax with friends old and new. “The tea table’s always a big attraction,” she said. “There’s always a nice assortment of savories and sweets.” Setting the mood for the event will be

THE ROCKING SOUNDS of Donna Jose and the Side Effects will be on center stage Saturday, July 14 at the Sportsman’s Pub-n-Grub in Pacific City. There is no cover charge for the 9 p.m-1 a.m. concert.
Rockin’ in July
Sportsman’s Pub-n-Grub hosts the Rockhounds, Donna Jose and the Side Effects By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun Revelers can jump into summer with a healthy dose of rock ‘n roll this July at the Sportsman’s Pub-n-Grub. The popular watering hole and eatery is hosting two popular bands during the month. Kicking things off on Saturday, July 7, 9 p.m.-1 a.m. will be the eclectic sounds of the Rockhounds. Boasting a repertoire that spans from the 1950s through the 1980s, the Rockhounds features keyboard player/vocalist Greg Sommers, rhythm guitarist Rusty Cook, guitarist/vocalist Kevin Kaneta, bassist James Scheidt, and drummer Craig Cunningham. The vocal talents of Lois McLennen chimes in on select songs to add a diverse dimension to the group’s sound. “We love playing there,” says Cunningham. “People seem to have as much fun listening to our music as we do playing it.” Though he calls Beaverton home, Cunningham says his frequent weekend coast trips are never complete without a visit to Pacific City’s place to “rub elbows with the locals.” “I don’t think you can get any better fish and chips anywhere in the state than right there in the Sportsman,” he boasts. The music will continue pouring out the amps one week later when Donna Jose and the Side Effects take the stage
at the Sporty. Lead vocalist Donna Jose and her teammates — Brad Price on lead guitar and vocals, Marty Henninger on drums and vocals and Scotty Bickford on bass, boast a repertoire that includes the likes of classics like Dylan, the Dead, Tom Petty, John Hiatt, Johnny Cash, Gram Parsons and more. The Side Effects performance will run from 9 p.m.-1 a.m. An eclectic band that touches on country to blues to rock ’n roll, their releases include the country and bluegrass infused “Rhymes of Passion,” and the folk-rock efforts “On the Road with Buddha’s Cat,” and “Spindrift.” Jose is a nurse practitioner by day who has taken her lifelong love of music and parlayed it into a second career performing at Portland venues, as well as an annual solo trek to England and Scotland where she plays in folk festivals. Oregon Public Broadcasting has featured her on Art Beat which highlighted her recording of “On The Road,” while NPR’s Car Talk has played her “Driving” single to the whole mechanically challenged world. “I love playing live,” she said. “The energy I get from my band mates and the crowd is a very joyful experience. We really play to the crowd — whatever the mood, we’ll steer in that direction.” The Sportsman’s Pub-n-Grub is located in downtown Pacific City at 34975 Brooten Road. Call 503-965-9991 for more information.

CELEBRATE THE 4TH with a stroll! The Neskowin Walkabout is scheduled for 10 a.m. on July 4 and will begin marching through town at the Proposal Rock Inn. Other Neskowin Independence Day activities include a 5K run, a sandcastle event, and fireworks.
Take a Walk P
Neskowin hosts annual walk-a-bout, sing-a-long and fireworks
erhaps there’s not another more accessible 4th of July celebration in America. Independence Day signals a day full of unpretentious fun as only the residents of Neskowin can host, and includes a “walkabout” through town at 10 a.m. Anyone can participate in this celebration by lining up in the parking lot adjacent the Proposal Rock Inn, starting at 9:30 a.m. Though past participants have gone all out in honor of our nation’s birthday with decorated bikes and pseudo drill teams, all that’s necessary to join in the fun is a set of walking shoes and appropriate attire. “Anyone is welcome,” says resident Pam Rowland. “Families like to dress up in something patriotic.” Immediately following the parade — at approximately 11 a.m., there will be a flag raising and sing-a-long in front of Proposal Rock Inn. Prior to the parade there runners are invited to lace up their Nikes for the inaugural Neskowin 5K Runabout. Entry fee is $10, or $20 with an event
t-shirt included. The event starts and finished at the Hawk Creek Bridge. For more information, or to register, visit www.neskowin5krunabout.com. For beach fun, check out “Castles & Kites on the Beach.” The sandcastle building event is tailored to the younger set will start at 2 p.m. on the beach. The event will be held on the beach near the Mt. Angel Avenue access. Rowland said it’s more of an event than a contest as it’s designed with children in mind — not groups who specialize in award-winning sand monstrosities. “It’s designed for families,” she said. “It’s hilarious and quite cute.” Festivities will conclude with a fireworks display that is planned to be set off on the beach at the intersection of Corvallis Steet and Breakers. And those wanting to do a good deed as we head into this 236th year of independence, are welcome to join in a beach clean-up on July 5, 8-9 a.m. Call 503-392-3003 for more information on the clean-up.

THE WORK OF SCULPTOR M.J. Anderson will be featured at the Rowboat Gallery, July 6-Aug. 6. Anderson will be feted alongside painter William Park, whose work will also be featured during the month of July at an artist reception on Saturday, July 7, from 6-8 p.m. Rowboat Gallery is located at 34950 Brooten Road in downtown Pacific City, across from the Village Merchants. For more information, visit www.rowboatgallery.com or call 503-965-4590.
Rowboat Gallery hosts sculptor M.J. Anderson and painter William Park
owboat Gallery in downtown Pacific City will be featuring sculptor M.J. Anderson and painter William Park in a show running from July 6-Aug. 6. Both Park and Anderson will be at Rowboat for the show’s opening reception on Saturday, July 7, from 6-8 p.m. Spending part of her time at the SGF Scultura studios near the marble quarries of Carrara, Italy, M.J. Anderson selects her stone and does much of the preliminary shaping of her pieces at this historic cultural enclave, using the resources available at SGF to help with the fabrication of larger public art commissions and liturgical pieces. For her gallery exhibition work, she will
typically ship “roughed out” work to her studio/home in Netarts for final shaping and polishing. For his part, Park says that “paint is my subject.” He was enamored with paint and the process of painting from an early age, mastering the technical aspects of various representative styles without ever losing a spontaneous sense of immersion in the medium. Park is also in great demand as a teacher, offering occasional workshops at his Northeast Portland studio and locally at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. Both artist’s work can be viewed online at rowboatgallery.com, or at the gallery at 34950 Brooten Road, across from the Village Merchants.

FISHING & OUTDOORS
On the Hook
Spring chinook fishing on the lower Nestucca River, Three Rivers picks up steam By PAT GEFRE for the Sun Full speed ahead! Yep, we are officially in what most would consider to be the peak of the spring chinook season on Three Rivers and the lower Nestucca River. Huge numbers of bright spring salmon are coning off of Three Rivers â€” most are being taken from the Hatchery Hole to the s-curves on Highway 22. Thatâ€™s where the majority of fishermen concentrate their efforts. The bigger four- and five-year fish took awhile to show, but they are here now â€” we have seen some salmon top 25 pounds. Itâ€™s not unusual to see 30 or more fishermen lining the banks of Three Rivers early in the morning. When there are this many fish in the system, almost everything tends to work. Right now salmon are being caught with a variety of offerings including corkies and yarn, spin n goâ€™s, eggs, shrimp, spinners, various flies, it all seems to work. I will add that bait, eggs and shrimp, under a bobber seem to be the best choice when salmon go off the bite or there are not so many fish around. The new regulations on Three Rivers seems to be having an impact. Although we are still getting complaints about illegal activity, the numbers of complaints are definitely down. I did have a run in with a socalled fisherman a few mornings ago â€” seems he had decided to forgo using a rod and reel and was chasing salmon in some shallow rapids with a net. When I stopped and informed him he was using illegal methods, his comment to me was â€œHuh?â€? That seems to be a typical reaction when folks get caught and donâ€™t quite know how to respond. Nonetheless he didnâ€™t seem real happy that he was caught and had a few choice words to toss my way. My reaction was to summon the state police and they were there within five minutes. Summer steelhead fishing has been coming on strong, both in Three Rivers and the Nestucca. I would say for this fishery that there are many more fish in the Nestucca than in Three Rivers. Boaters and bank fisherman alike have been reporting very good catches on the summers. Because of low water, boaters arenâ€™t fishing much higher in
the system than First Bridge but they are getting plenty of mint chrome summers steelhead from First Bridge to the mouth of Three Rivers. Bank anglers are also fishing the lower river where they have access to lots of water on the upper river. Summer steelhead anglers are reporting bright summers as high up as Fourth Bridge. One property owner on the upper river above Moon Creek said he was seeing fish laying in some of the holes on his property. Smaller baits of eggs or shrimp fished on small diameter leaders, 10-pound or less, are the preferred method for most steelhead anglers. You may fish bait up to Moon Creek at the town of Blaine. Above Moon Creek it is artificial only â€” no bait allowed. Fly anglers use this stretch of water as well as spinner fishermen. Smaller size no. 3 and no. 4 spinners are about right. One of the more popular spinners in the upper river has been the Budâ€™s Lureâ€™s in chrome plated or solid brass. These lures fished in the tail outs are very effective. Fishing in tidewater for salmon has slowed a bit after last weekâ€™s heavy rains. Many of the salmon holding in tidewater took advantage of the higher river levels to move up into the Nestucca and Three Rivers systems. If the weather stays dry, tidewater fishing should pick up again until the next rain. Lots of folks in tidewater are fishing bobber and shrimp or eggs but just as many are using spinners and other methods such as floating small herring under a bobber. Other popular baits in tidewater are Tuna bellies or chunks of sardines. Clamming and crabbing have been fair to good this month. Crabbers â€” especially out on the ocean â€” have been filling limits regularly. Clamming has been good especially on theÂ low and minus tides. The Rhodes Pond fin-clipping event June 16 went very well. Iâ€™m told there were almost 140 volunteers on hand to help. All went well and in fact they were finished in record time this year. It makes such a huge difference to have community support and lots of participation. Itâ€™s great to see lots of familiar faces both from the fishing and business community come together for such a worthy cause.
