irefighters and members of the public, too, showcased their best efforts of racing to the top of Pacific City’s popular dune — and back again — during the third annual Pacific City Firefighter Dune Climb. Held on July 21, the timed event served as a fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. All told, 10 participants, as well as those making donations, helped the Nestucca Rural Firefighters Association to raise $135 for LLS. Loosely-based on firefighter stair climb events that are held throughout the nation, the event challenged participants to surmount the approximately 240 feet of vertical climb and return again in the fastest time possible. In the competition, firefighters wore full turnouts, a self-contained breathing apparatus and were on air while the open category allowed the public to take on the challenge as they were. In the firefighters’ category, Austin Sears, of Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District, finished first in a time of 9:50. He also was the winner of the “Newbies” division (under age 30). He was followed by second-place finisher Roy Hansen, of NRFPD, who covered the course in 11:05. Hansen was also the winner of

visit to Pacific City’s coastline can mean more than putting your toes in the sand and splashing in the ocean — the ebbs and flows of the Nestucca River, too, provides plenty of recreational opportunities. One way to explore the scenic waterway is via kayak or stand-up paddleboards, and, for those lacking their own watercraft, Nestucca Adventures is happy to help. For the last seven years, Nestucca Adventures has provided a rental fleet that has rewarded visitors from far away locales such as South Africa, Chile and Ireland with excursions on the water. And now, with its newly rebuilt dock loaded with more than 50 watercraft, they have even more to offer the public.

endangered under the federal Endangered Species Act. Currently, 28 salmon and steelhead populations are protected under the ESA. However, due to investments over the last 20 years, including from the salmon recovery fund, Oregon Coast Coho Salmon, are well on the way to recovery. In addition to benefiting salmon, the improvements are credited with helping to make the state’s water drinkable and its rivers swimmable. Watershed councils, soil and water conservation districts, land trusts, landowners and local communities plant trees, replace culverts with bridges, and restore estuaries and natural streambanks. This work improves water quality and reduces flood risk for local communities. Irrigators use the program to reduce their water use, which can also reduce their energy costs while putting more water back in streams for fish. “Investing in salmon habitat restoration benefits Oregon and Oregonians — from east to west, north to south, rural to urban,” said Jan Lee of the Oregon Conservation Partnership. Lee is also acting executive director of the Oregon Association of Conservation Districts, a member of the partnership. The Oregon Conservation Partnership represents more than 160 organizations that support voluntary conservation across Oregon. The Partnership includes the Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts, Oregon Association of Conservation Districts, Network of Oregon Watershed Councils, and Oregon Conservation Education and Assistance Network.

“Service Even After The Sale”

The state of Oregon has secured $15 million for salmon habitat restoration projects throughout the state. The funding comes from the Pacific Coast Salmon Recovery Fund and is distributed by the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board. “The Pacific Coast Salmon Recovery Fund is so critical to keeping habitat intact for salmon and steelhead that are on the brink of extinction. It protects places that give them the highest chance for survival. It’s this little-known federal fund, but it literally keeps Salmon nation going,” said Kelley Beamer from the Oregon Conservation Partnership. Beamer is also executive director of the Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts, a member of the partnership. Since 2000, the Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Fund has invested nearly $237 million in Oregon. It is leveraged with state Lottery dollars, bringing the total invested in salmon and steelhead habitat in Oregon in the last 20 years to $603 million. The funds are distributed in a competitive grant process via OWEB, Oregon’s agency that protects native fish and wildlife habitat. For every $1 million spent on habitat restoration, 15-24 jobs are created in local economies. More than 90 cents of every dollar invested stays in those local — often rural — communities. The salmon recovery fund also supports the region’s recreational and commercial fishing industries, which offer more than 17,000 jobs.  The fund was started by Congress in 2000 to help restore salmon and steelhead populations listed as threatened or

news&community Chamber to host discussion on future of Reach the Beach By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun

I

n response to community and business concerns, the Pacific City-Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce is going to host a discussion on the future of the Reach the Beach bicycle ride’s finish in Pacific City at its next general membership meeting, Tuesday, Aug. 6 at Kiawanda Community Center. The meeting, which begins at noon, will first feature community and government updates, followed by the focus on Reach the Beach, which is slated to run 45 minutes to an hour. Noting there have been some business and community members that have worried over the inconvenience it brings or the lost business it causes, Chamber board member Doug Olson told the Sun that because of that, the Chamber believes it’s time to examine whether it would be best for the ride, which is the American Lung Association of Oregon’s largest fundraiser, to continue as is, be modified, or be moved to a finish in another locale. Questions the Chamber intends to address include: Has the annual event grown too large for Pacific City? Are there benefits to our local businesses and residents? Do the benefits exceed the costs and inconvenience to businesses, residents and our community? And, finally, is it time to ask the ALAO to find another destination? “We’re hoping to have a very candid conversation for anyone who wants to weigh in,” Olson said. “They say whether it’s a good thing or not.” He also noted that while the Chamber does split funds with the Nestucca Valley Lions Club from ALAO for operating the Reach the Beach bicycle corral, the amount received is limited — $750 for each organization.

“I would say that, financially, it’s not a big deal for the Chamber,” Olson said. “I’ve heard some (businesses) say they actually do better (with Reach the Beach) because more people are in town and others say it’s just a big nuisance and they actually lose money.” Though the Chamber isn’t the decision-making body on whether the ride will continue finishing here in Pacific City, he believes its support — or lack thereof — would carry weight. Olson also said that the Chamber will take a straw poll at the end to the meeting to gauge support — either pro or con.

PELICAN BREWING COMPANY has joined forces with Portland Thorns FC as the award-winning brewery recently signed a muli-year sponsorship with the team.

Pelican Brewing Co. inks multi-year sponsorship with Portland Thorns FC Notably aligned cultures, fan base and commitment to community have brought two iconic Oregon brands — Pelican Brewing Company and Portland Thorns FC — together to continue to offer elite women’s soccer to Portland. Pelican has just inked a multi-year sponsorship with the Thorns, the topattended women’s sports franchise in the world.  With the recent $85 million expansion of Providence Park, Pelican says they saw a natural fit for the two iconic Oregon brands who are all about family fun, a memorable experience and inclusivity.  “We’ve been thinking about which sports really aligned with the Pelican Brewing brand and when this opportunity with the Thorns emerged, it really resonated for us — it’s the right culture, feel and such a fabulous Portlandcentric community to partner with,” said Jim Prinzing, chief executive officer, Pelican Brewing Company. “We see this as an incredible opportunity for two like-minded organizations and we are thrilled to be a part of this great sports team.” Averaging more than 18,000 fans per match in 2019, Thorns FC are the topattended women’s professional sports franchise in the world. Established in 2012, the team began play in 2013 in the National Women’s Soccer League. In their inaugural season, Thorns FC won the first ever NWSL championship, while winning an NWSL Shield in 2016

and a second NWSL Championship in 2017. “We are thrilled to welcome Pelican Brewing Company to the team and look forward to working together on the many elements included in this exciting new partnership,” said Mike Golub, president of business for Thorns FC. As part of the partnership, Pelican sponsored the Thorns v. Houston Dash game on July 24. Throughout the season, Pelican will have in-stadium presence and be giving away Thorns tickets at local Pelican Tap Takeovers and events. Pelican Brewing Company was born at the beach in 1996. Thanks to the vision of founding owners Jeff Schons and Mary Jones, Oregon’s only beachfront brewpub became one of the state’s most popular destinations. And now 24 years later, Pelican Brewing Company is an iconic beach brand and one of the most decorated craft breweries in Oregon. Pelican has been honored with more than 450 awards including the prestigious 2015, 2016, 2017 Australian International Beer Awards Champion Medium International Brewery; 2014 World Beer Cup Champion Small Brewery; and 2013 Great American Beer Festival Large Brewpub of the Year. Pelican operates brewing and brewpub facilities in Pacific City, Cannon Beach, and its state-of-the-craft brewery in Tillamook, Oregon where it brews 40,000 barrels of award-winning beer annually and distributes to six states.

Tierra Del Mar residents cry foul over missing signs Tierra Del Mar residents have reported the theft of several signs that were earlier erected to protest a proposed fiber optic cable installation in the community. Residents say the signs were stolen on Sunday, July 21 between 8 and 11 a.m. A complaint has been filed with the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office. Anyone with knowledge of the theft or the whereabouts of the 20 signs can contact

the Sheriff’s Office at 503-815-1911. A replacement sign was reposted at the corner of Devaney and Sand Lake Road before the end of the day. Previously, a series of roadside signs had been posted along Sand Lake Road in Tierra Del Mar as part of the community’s effort to express their concern over the proposed drilling that would be part of the fiber optic cable installation.

Other trophies included Best Decorated (George Morlan Plumbing), Best Decorated Dory (Grand Marshals Ron and Julie Kellow), Equestrian (Green Acres Trail and Beach Rides), and Best Group (South County Towing). Cars, too, got in on the winning action. Awarded first place for cars 30-plus years old vehicles was Chuck Atwood for his 1950 5-window Chevy pickup truck. And antiques and more store, The Rusty Cow, of Cloverdale, won “The Rusty Truck Award.” Other highlights of the threeday festivities included the artisan fair, which attracted crowds at the four-way stop, a kids’ dune climb in which 38 children showed up for the race to the top, and a fish fry at the Kiawanda Community Center. Honored in 2016 as one of only 20 events statewide to be heralded as an Oregon Heritage Tradition, the event was co-sponsored by the Pacific City-Nestucca Valley of Commerce and the Pacific City Dorymen’s Association.

Putting Your TLT Dollars to Work – Part 1 By MARY FAITH BELL Tillamook County Commissioner Last year when I was on the campaign trail for the office of county commissioner, a number of people asked me, “What is the county doing with TLT facilities dollars?” There was speculation that the county was hoarding millions of dollars of Transient Lodging Tax revenue for unknown purposes. People wanted to know where that money was going, and if it is not being reinvested back into the community, why not? They called for transparency and a public process. I will attempt to answer those questions and I’ll start with a brief history: in 2013, Tillamook County voters approved a Transient Lodging Tax to be collected from transient lodging providers in Tillamook County. Voters were in support of the tax largely because 30 percent of the revenue was dedicated to the roads department. At the time, Tillamook County had some of the worst roads in the state, with no solution in sight. (In the past, the roads department was funded by timber revenues, but that’s another column for another day.) The county started collecting TLT revenue in January 2014. By state law, 70 percent of the revenue collected from lodging providers must be spent on tourism promotion. The county appointed a Tourism Advisory Committee (the TAC) comprised of industry representatives and citizens at large, representing North, Central and South Tillamook County. I was an original member of the TAC. A consultant was hired to begin laying the foundation for a local destination marketing organization that would become Visit Tillamook Coast. From the beginning, it was clear to everyone involved that Tillamook County wanted to approach tourism in our own way: we want visitors to come and enjoy the natural beauty of our area without damaging or destroying it; we want to retain our identity as a working community built on dairy farming, timber and fishing and we want our locally owned, tourism-based businesses to thrive. Essentially, we want to build our economy without giving up our quality of life. We understood that this would be a balancing act that would require careful stewardship. The decision was made to separate the (70 percent portion of the TLT) revenue into two pots: one for tourism promotions and one for tourism facilities. This was a great move in my opinion, and bold, because it had not been done elsewhere. Other communities were using the bulk of their TLT revenue to advertise for more tourists; however, Tillamook said, “We want to invest in infrastructure that benefits the community and supports tourists when they are here.” Grant processes were established for tourism facilities and tourism promotions, i.e., helping local businesses to be successful with their advertising, online presence, signage, etc.

In the early stages of grant funding, facilities grants were awarded for several terrific projects such as the expansion of the Kiawanda Community Center, where a lovely community meeting room was added that also serves as a place where visitors get married and hold events. Grants funded the handicapped accessible restroom at the Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts Barn Community Playhouse and a beautiful renovation of the performing arts center at the North County Recreation District. Lots of great facilities projects have been accomplished with TLT dollars resulting in positive economic impacts on the local community while improving the visitor experience. At that time, the TAC, under leadership of Visit Tillamook Coast, was reviewing grant applications for both promotions and facilities grants and making recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners. Thereafter, the BOCC elected to take over distribution of the TLT facilities dollars. They formed a new citizen committee to review grant applications. I served on the new committee along with several other members of the original TAC. The facilities grant application process became less frequent and the grants were limited to smaller amounts (up to $15,000 per project for a total of $100,000). This is, not unreasonably, when the community started asking, “Hey, what is the county doing with the facilities dollars?” The truth is that the BOCC wanted to be intentional and strategic about investing the revenue in ways that would best serve the community. They wanted to award grants that were aligned with a strategic vision for Tillamook County moving into the future, and they wanted the public to inform this process. In 2017, the Tillamook County Future’s Council was empowered to conduct listening sessions across the county to ask residents, “What do you want us to do with TLT facilities funds?” Many people participated in those sessions, and the responses were generally weighted in these categories: natural environment/outdoor recreation investments, trails that connect the communities and infrastructure that supports tourists when they are here, such as bathrooms and parking lots. This was valuable information, but the BOCC lacked a strategy for prioritizing the investments. Enter Future iQ. A consulting firm called Future iQ was contracted in 2019 to do the work of affirming the community’s priorities for TLT investment and developing a rubric, or a scoring guide, to evaluate facilities grant applications as they relate to the county’s tourism strategy. Starting in February 2019, many people in our community attended tourism think tanks and listening sessions in person, and hundreds more participated online. Ultimately, almost 300 Tillamook County residents weighed in and shared what they want the future of tourism in

our county to look like, and how they would like to see us invest the TLT revenue. The participants were an organic mix of residents who are not involved in the tourism industry and those who are, that represent a variety of ages and backgrounds from every corner of the county. The results were affirming in that they illustrate our common values: almost unanimously the top priorities identified were care of the natural environment, trails/natural recreation opportunities and infrastructure that supports tourists and benefits the county. The Future iQ report is nearly complete, we have the final draft in hand. At our July 31 BOCC meeting, David Beurle of Future iQ presented the tool that the BOCC will use to score facilities grant applications. Essentially the tool will help us to evaluate projects based on the community’s stated values. The BOCC will also be able to use the tool to rank infrastructure projects for which grants are not submitted, for example, public bathrooms in unincorporated areas that are heavily used by tourists. With this work by Future iQ, the BOCC will move forward with confidence that our future investments of TLT facilities funds will reflect the vision and values of the citizens of Tillamook County. The July 31 BOCC meeting with the Future iQ presentation will be available, as always, on local Charter cable channel 4 and online at tctvonline.com.
