THE CAPE KIWANDA LONGBOARD CLASSIC & BREWFEST will feature an expected 200 surfers and brews from 17 Northwest breweries when it returns to Pacific City, Sept. 13-15.

The Pacific City-Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce has posted an online survey to gauge community support of the America Lung Association of Oregon’s Reach the Beach bicycle ride, an annual fundraiser in which 3,000 bicyclists finish at Cape Kiwanda. The survey can be found at https:// www.surveymonkey.com/r/SouthTillamookCounty and will be open until Sept. 6. In addition to querying respondents as to whether they are full- or part-time residents and whether they own or operate a business in South Tillamook County, the three-question survey is asking those responding which option they recommend for future Reach the Beach Events: “No change… leave the event ‘as is,’” “Leave the Reach the Beach finish line at Cape Kiwanda, but reroute the riders around Pacific City via Resort Drive….,” and “Ask the American Lung Association of Oregon to find another destination for Reach the Beach.” Following completion of the survey, results will be shared with officials representing Tillamook County residents, including the Sheriff’s Office, the Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District, the Board of County Commissioners, and the Office of Community Development. As reported in the Aug. 16 edition of the Sun, several Chamber businesses recently shared their reservations about the event continuing to finish in Pacific City. Amongst their concerns are a loss of business, excess congestion and an inability to travel throughout town to make deliveries.

The Tillamook County Planning Commission will hear public testimony Thursday, Sept. 5, starting at 7 p.m., on a conditional-use permit request from Facebook/Edge Cable Holdings, which is seeking to land a fiber optic cable, which would be a part of the Jupiter Submarine Cable System, on a residential lot it owns in Tierra Del Mar. The hearing will be held at the Tillamook County Courthouse. The meeting comes on the heels of an Aug. 11 town hall meeting during which Facebook and Edge Cable representatives answered community concerns about the proposal. As reported in the Aug. 16 edition of the Sun, Facebook representatives spent significant time answering as to why they hadn’t reached out to the community sooner. They also outlined the need for additional bandwidth that the new fiber optic cable would provide. “(The reason for the proposed Tierra Del Mar landing is) the availability of the fiber optic infrastructure that’s on land and the constraints we have offshore,” said Jon Hudson, Facebook network investment manager. “It’s the combination of those (factors) that led us to (select the Tierra Del Mar site) through a site selection process, which we worked through over nine months. I can tell you through the process, and what we’ve looked at through the fishing community, there is not a second route that meets all of the criteria.” In addition to answering the question of why Tierra Del Mar, representatives also answered concerns about noise, vibration, post-construction landscaping and the potential for adding subsequent cables to the landing. Mark Bastasch, principal acoustic engineer for the project, said that, during construction, residents could expect a noise level of 68 decibels at 20 feet from the drill rig, but that number would decrease with distance and decrease even more with a sound barrier, which are typically 10 to 15 feet high but could be built to 20 feet or possibly a little bit taller.

expected to drop the sound level 8 to 12 decibels. As decibels are computed differently than normal math, a 10-decibel drop would equate to a halving of the sound level. Officials also addressed the issue of vibration, which some residents feared could damage their septic tanks. While they said that, based on their research, there’s no indication that vibration will cause any damage, they would be willing to do pre- and postconstruction inspections of residents’ properties. “(We could do that) so that, if there’s something that has happened, we can see it and we can address it,” said Phil Grillo, local land use counsel with Davis Wright Tremaine, who has been retained by Facebook. “There’s a need for some kind of accountability there, and we want to be in that position to do this.” Pacific City resident Doug Olson, a current board member of the Tillamook PUD and past board member of Pacific City Joint Water-Sanitary Authority, suggested a further assurance. “Would you think the company would put up a surety bond of some sort, say $7, $8, $10 million that would restore whatever could be damaged, assuming there would be some reasonable cause and effect?” he asked. “In other words, another guarantee that when you go do this, if you get that far along, there’s some protections for us, including … a covenant (that would prohibit additional cables from being landed by Facebook or a subsequent owner) that runs with the land.” Grillo said that, while he thought a multi-million surety bond could be a good idea, he believed it requires a little “deeper dive” and that he’d like to hold another meeting with the public in late October or early November — after the Planning Commission hearing — to address it. Grillo also answered community concern about the timing of construction should it be approved. “We don’t want to interrupt the Duck’s game for the national championship in early January,” he said. “(I) would think (construction would start) sometime thereafter with a 15- to 30-(day) construction schedule. It could be wrapped up fairly quickly.”

Chamber seeks help setting priorities With $50,000 on the way from Tillamook County’s budget, Chamber is seeking advice from its members and the community By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun The Pacific City-Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce, which is slated to receive $50,000 as part of Tillamook County’s annual budget that was adopted in June, will be seeking member and community input on the best way to invest the funds at its next monthly meeting, Tuesday, Sept. 3 at Kiawanda Community Center. The meeting starts at noon. To date, the Chamber has developed a list of 36 possible ways to use the coming funds, as well as guidelines for potential expenditures. Amongst the list of possible expenditures are assisting Kiawanda Community Center with acquisition of adjoining property on its south boundary, upgrading the Chamber website, adding a new event in the off season, purchasing new sound system for KCC, purchasing a PowerPoint system for KCC, providing wheelchairs for ADA access to the beach, upgrading the Chamber’s kiosk at Cape Kiwanda, installing sidewalks in “specific areas,” adding municipal WiFi, developing a walking map for the Cape Kiwanda and downtown areas, funding a shared part-time person with KCC, cooperating with KCC at wedding shows and more, matching funds to the proposed Noble Wayside in Cloverdale, assisting with funding and fundraising of proposed Dorymen’s Museum, assisting with the Good Neighbor program, enhancing the annual Christmas program for kids, providing business incentives, adding bike stands across South Tillamook County, funding the addition of hanging flower baskets in select areas, enhancing the Birding & Blues Festival, enhancing the commu-

nity garden, sponsoring an annual “Big Fish” contest, sustaining and enlarging the Pacific City 4th of July Fireworks, adding an off-season arts and crafts festival, adding streetlights to Neskowin, beginning an annual volunteer spaghetti feed, assisting Caring Cabin programs, securing a booth at Tillamook County Fair, offering scholarships for Nestucca High School graduating seniors, assisting the Nestucca Valley Community Alliance’s development of a community park, developing and upgrading bicycle paths, securing a “marching band” for South County parades, adding additional storage at KCC and upgrading Neskowin’s main entrance. A partial list of proposed guidelines include verifying if funds will be available every fiscal year, requiring that project would be completed within a year, stipulating that no matching funding required, ensuring that the return on investment will be realized in the short term, requiring that some projects must benefit businesses and South County at large, insisting that projects be separate from other current or proposed projects, and requiring that projects be specific to South Tillamook County. These lists, though, are just a starting point says Chamber board member Doug Olson. “We want to ask members of the community to come up with some more,” he said. “We want to do something that no one else is doing and something that benefits our community as a whole.” He said that at the close of the meeting he hopes to both get feedback on the Chamber’s list and have new ideas on how to use the funds. “We’ll listen to everybody,” he said.

In the call, which was received at 5:52 a.m., it was reported that there were two large, older commercial tanks, approximately 300 gallons in size, that were part of an old mink farm from about 50 years ago. The ammonia was used as a refrigerant in the cooling system. The caller, Dan Krueger, reported that he could smell the ammonia in the area of the buildings. Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District units responded and notified the State Fire Marshal as well as the Oregon Emergency Response System, who dispatched HAZMAT and

decontamination teams out of Salem and Tualatin Fire and Rescue to assist. They then evacuated two nearby residences. At approximately 10:13 a.m., the crews arrived and subsequently located the buildings and tanks. The crews evaluated both the buildings and the tanks and determined that the area was clear of any gasses at that time. At approximately 11:35 a.m., the HAZMAT Team declared that there was no longer any hazard. Responders included Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District, Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office, Tillamook County Emergency Management, Tillamook Adventist Ambulance, Salem Fire HAZMAT, and Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue.

OPRD ramps up enforcement of illegal vehicle access along mouth of Nestucca Oregon Parks & Recreation District is beginning to clamp down on vehicles illegally accessing the shoreline adjacent the mouth of the Nestucca River. Speaking at the Pacific City Dorymen’s Association meeting on Aug. 24, Kirk Barham, park manager for the Oregon Parks and Recreation District’s Cape Lookout unit, told the group that while it has historically been permitted for vehicles to drive on the beach from Pacific Avenue down to the mouth, he said

that is where vehicle access ends. “Basically, past the vegetation line going upriver has (always) been closed to vehicles,” he said. “We are enforcing that more this year. It has caused some issues with people. “We’ve put up multiple signs that have actually been ripped out. We are going to continue getting this process going because it’s starting to get overused, and, unfortunately, we’re starting to see some damages in what is a pristine estuary.”

Ultimook Open 5K Trail Race set for Sept. 7 The 2019 Ultimook Open 5K Trail Race is set for Saturday, Sept. 7 at The Hydrangea Ranch, 9455 Kilchis River Rd., Tillamook. The event is a junior and senior high school Cross Country Invitational, with an open category for adults and youth not affiliated with a track team. The open race starts at 8:15 a.m. with a kids 600 meter untimed fun run starting immediately before at 8 a.m. The open 5K includes two river crossings, a mud pit, and wood-chipped trails. Registration for the open race is $15 for youth and $20 for adults. Youth who register in the open category will be placed in whatever age category best suits them in the Invitational. Register at RaceEntry.com or at the venue the day of the event. Visit ultimookrunningcamp.oregoncoastflowers.com/ultimook-race/. and pay a cost to dump that or to push that dirt back to our other tax lot that we own,” Wharton said. “We chose to push it back to the back of the campus. That served two purposes for us. It saved us a bunch of money, and it really helped us level that area out and ready it for the development of some fields for the kids.” Other items that have been checked off so far include moving the school’s garden to its new permanent home where it will eventually be used as a real-world classroom, the demolition of the bus barn, and the completion of new permanent conduits and water lines. As well, workers have dug a hole for three 20,000-gallon fire expression tanks. And with the demolishment of the elementary school’s old music room, cafeteria and kitchen scheduled within the new few months, contractors have erected a floor-to-ceiling wall in the front entry to block off access to what was the school’s cafeteria and kitchen. Construction of the new building is expected to be completed by December 2020 when work will turn towards landscaping and a playground. Wharton said the school will then need the Summer of 2021 to complete renovation on the existing structure. The renovated and expanded campus is scheduled to be open to instruction in September 2021. The high school, too, is receiving an update of the football field’s lighting

Whiskey Creek Fish Hatchery to host fishing day for disabled children

Seafood Market

We’ve Got You Covered!

The Whiskey Creek Fish Hatchery is hosting its 28th annual fishing day for children with disabilities on Saturday, Sept. 14. Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife are donating 1200 rainbow trout for the event. Volunteers are needed to help count, clean and pack the fish on ice. Coffee, hot chocolate and doughnuts will be available starting at 9 a.m. and a BBQ lunch will be provided at noon. A raffle and silent auction will also take place at the event – donations are being sought. For information on volunteering, call 503-812-1572. The Hatchery is located at 7660 Whiskey Creek Rd., Tillamook. thanks to some of the funds from the sale of the district’s Beaver Educational Building. That project will feature four light poles with LED lighting and all underground power lines when completed in early October, a project with a total cost of $268,000. “It’s going to be a big upgrade for our kids,” Wharton said. “It will light that whole area up. It’s more cost effective. We won’t have any of those guidewires hanging off poles because everything will be underground so that’s exciting.” She also credited Tillamook PUD with their support for the project. “They’ve volunteered to do some in-kind work for us and really helped us navigate this process,” she said. The district is also purchasing a new bus with general fund dollars and is looking at long-term projects such as how to better utilize the high school campus once the new elementary school is complete and 7th- and 8thgrade students are moved there. Wharton said some of the things the district is looking at are what kind of technical programs they can develop and whether they should start an alternative education school. For more information about the upgrade to the elementary school, patrons are invited to visit nestucca.k12. or.us where they can find construction updates and a live construction video feed.

Making a Break for the Surf Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic & Brewfest returns to Pacific City, Sept. 13-15 By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun

S

urfers will showcase their mastery of their boards, their knack for riding the break and their flare for the dramatic when they show off their moves in the waters off Pacific City when they gather for the Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic & Brewfest, Sept. 13-15. The 21st annual showcase not only gives both locals and those heralding from up and down the coast, and the valley, too, a chance at bragging rights but also will give a shot in the arm to an effort to bring a skate park to Pacific City as proceeds will benefit the planned park. The event is expected to once again sell out. In fact, as of press time, 180 of the 210 spots had already been filled. With 10 categories, surfers of all ages are well represented at the contest. Categories include 70 and older, 60-69, 50-59, 40-49, 30-39, 18-29, 13-17, 12 and under; kids with parent, and women. As of press time, a limited number of spots remained for all but the 40-49 and 1829 categories. Featuring 15-minute heats, the contest will run 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14 and 8 a.m.-3 p.m. on Sunday. Organizer Jeff Mollencop, of Moment Surf Co. (momentsurfco.com), says the event is a good way to showcase the Pacific City surf scene. “It’s continuing to be more popular,” he says. “It’s such an easily accessible, user-friendly beach. (The beach at Cape Kiwanda) sets up very well for this contest — not only participants but the spectators and the general public that want to come down and enjoy (it).” Mollencop also emphasizied that the event is not just for competitors, but also a chance for all to enjoy the surfing displays. To help give all a better sense of the competition, the event will feature live scoring for the second straight year, which enables the announcers to read scores during each heat. He also offered tips for taking in the contest. “For somebody who isn’t familiar with surfing, the easy way to think about better waves are the length of the ride,” he explained. “If someone is getting a longer ride, they’ll be able to do

A Brewfest on Saturday, noon-6 p.m., has also become a key part of the celebration. Sponsoring by Pelican Brewing, the Brewfest will also feature beer from Beachcrest Brewing (Gleneden Beach), Wolf Tree Brewery (Seal Rock), Fort George Brewery (Astoria), Seaside Brewing Company (Seaside), Public Coast Brewing (Cannon Beach), Ancestry Brewing (Portland) 2 Towns Ciderhouse (Corvallis), Grain Station Brew Works (McMinnville), Rusty Truck Brewing (Lincoln City), Silver Falls Brewery (Silverton), Buoy Beer Company (Astoria), Ninkasi Brewing Company (Eugene), Golden Valley Brewery (McMinnville), Von Evert Brewing (Portland), Thunder Island Brewing (Cascade Locks) and Grains of Wrath (Camas, Wash.).

to benefit the future skate park. The live sounds of ZhuG will provide a musical backdrop from 1-5 p.m. for the party at the brew fest. As well, from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Parilla Grill will serve up lunch and vendors will be showcasing their wares. In addition, the event will feature surfboard demonstrations where people can try out boards from Firewire, Lib-Tech and Murdey Surfboards. There will also be several surf-related vendors on hand to show their products. As well, the Nestucca Valley Community Alliance will have a booth where they will show the progress to date of the park and the funds yet needed to make the park and skatepark a reality. And even before the contest takes to the waters, there’ll be a chance to revel in the company of others as the weekend starts off with a registration party on Friday, 6-9 p.m., with a Pelican-spon-

events&activities Tillamook Community Chorus invites public to join rehearsals Many people love to sing for the pure joy of it. And while that joy is more than enough motivation for most singers, there are additional benefits people may not know about. Singing strengthens the immune system, is a physical workout, helps with sleep, lowers stress levels, improves mental alertness, and can widen one’s circle of friends — to name just a few of the advantages. Now, imagine all this joy and well-being multiplied by many voices, the feeling of shared purpose and exhilaration when singing in a group. For those that think this all sounds like something they’d like to add to their life, Tillamook Community Chorus offers a way to make it happen. Singers of all skill levels and aged 18 or older are invited and encouraged to join the Chorus; there are no auditions and reading music is not a requirement. The Chorus rehearses on Thursday evenings, 6:30-8:30 p.m., in the choir room at Tillamook High School. There are two rehearsal cycles: one in the fall and one in the spring — each concluding with a public concert. The next cycle begins Thursday, Sept. 5, when new and returning Chorus members will gather to register begin-

ning at 6 p.m. At 6:30 p.m., the first rehearsal will begin. The registration fee for the fall cycle is $45 (covers printed music, director’s stipend, etc.), and there is financial assistance available (just ask at the registration table). Interested folks are invited to come and try the first night at no charge. Those that are unable to sing but would still like to be involved with the Chorus, can also ask about becoming a contributor. The fall concert will have a holiday theme and be presented on Saturday, Dec. 7. The Chorus is directed by Andrew Bergh, who is also the choir director for both Tillamook High School and Tillamook Junior High School. This will be Bergh’s third season as Tillamook Community Chorus Director. Accompanying the Chorus on the piano is Barbara Richmond, who accompanies many local choirs and drama productions. Chorus members come from all parts of Tillamook County and think of themselves as “a group of friends who love to sing.” Listening, learning, and laughter abound. It’s a warm and welcoming place. To learn more about Tillamook Community Chorus, call Mary at 503812-1830.

Take Dial-A-Ride to visit a friend...or maybe go shopping? Door-to-Door service available for Pacific City, Cloverdale, Hebo, Beaver, Neskowin and Tierra Del Mar Advance reservations recommended and can be scheduled up to two weeks in advance. Service on Dial-A-Ride is scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Strong Women & Strong People Programs to begin Sept. 9 The OSU Extension Service in Tillamook will offer the “Strong Women & Strong People Program,” a strength training program for middle-aged and older adults, beginning the week of Sept. 9 and running through Dec. 31. Programs held at the OSU Extension Office, 4506 Third Street in Tillamook are for women and the program in Netarts is open to women and men. The 8 a.m., noon & 1:30 p.m classes are held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the OSU Extension Office in Tillamook. The Netarts class is held Tuesday and Thursday mornings, 9-10 a.m. at the Netarts Community Building. Weights are provided. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and athletic shoes. Registration is recommended one week prior to the program. Registration is online at http://bit.ly/TillamookFamilyHealth. When registering online, new participants must complete the required

screening and enrollment forms and pay the $30 online registration fee with a credit/debit card or bring their check or cash payment to the OSU Extension Office. Those over age 70 or those with other chronic health conditions must obtain a release from their medical provider before beginning. All new participants attending sessions at the OSU Extension Office must attend the mandatory orientation on Friday, Sept. 6, 10:30-11:30 a.m. or schedule an appointment with the program coordinator, Nancy Kershaw, 503-842-3433, prior to beginning the program. The Strong Women & People Programs were developed at Tufts University, based upon research on how strength training improves the health of older adults. Research shows strength training improves bone density, reduces falls, improves arthritis symptoms, and increases flexibility and strength.

To schedule rides, call 503-815-8283 Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. For more details, visit tillamookbus.com.
