‘Roktoberfest’ to Pour It On

Pacific City’s renamed Oktoberfest celebration to feature German-themed festivities on Oct. 5 By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun hat do you get when you take a menu full of authentic German cuisine, a full slate of Bavarian music and entertainment and a locale that’s home of one of the most iconic spots on the Oregon Coast? That must be the recipe for Pacific City’s reimagined Oktoberfest celebration, which for the first time in its four-year run, has been renamed “Roktoberfest” in honor of Haystack Rock. This year, the Germanthemed celebration will take place Saturday, Oct. 5, with not one, but two events. Roktoberfest will run noon-6 p.m. with German-themed food, music and a beer garden. It will be followed by a live music event featuring the tribute band The Avett Others, 7-9 p.m. As has been the tradition for the event, a lineup of regional breweries will give patrons the chance to sample a variety of beer. This year’s event will feature Boneyard, Buoy, Fort George, Georgetown, Migration, Nectar Creek, Pelican, pFriem, and Rogue. Wine and 2 Towns Cider will be options for those that aren’t beer drinkers.

TALKBACK In defense of ‘Ezra’ the Thrift Store cat To the Editor: I appreciate the Library Club Board’s work on behalf of the community, but evicting Ezra?! Really?  Apparently, Ezra’s presence at the Thrift Store was approved by a previous Library Club Board. In my humble opinion, he is a major asset to the store. He literally gives people a warm and fuzzy feeling when they are at the store...inside or outside. Happy customers are more likely to buy, or donate as the case may be. In a recent email I received from Helen Pangelian (Library Club Member), it was said that Ezra is not a happy cat. The evidence given is that one can hear him “screaming” when closed inside. Helen characterizes this vocalization as “screaming for help.” I find this argument disingenuous at best...and crafted to support a position that simply doesn’t make sense on its face. If a cat is angry or resistant to a living arrangement, s/he will escape at the first opportunity and not return or be captured again. Clearly, this is not Ezra’s state of mind. He may be vocal, usually more of a personality trait, but if he were indeed miserable, as Helen is suggesting, he would not return to the store where he is loved, fed, and fawned over. Ezra appears as content as he could possibly be. There are myriad examples of cats in stores and business offices. Can there be some insurmountable problem that has not been resolved elsewhere?  If we are concerned about allergies can’t that issue be addressed by posting a sign on the door... “Ezra the Cat in Residence. If you have allergies or a fear of domestic house cats... enter at your own risk.” I don’t know what the real issues are here, but, if the decision to evict Ezra is not reversed, I think this is a public relations “fail” on the part of the Library Club Board. The worst thing is that it takes Ezra away from a loving and caring living situation. Who knows what the future would hold? Let’s not forget...Ezra chose this life...it is not being forced upon him. Anne Price Pacific City

Library board member clarifies cat decision To the Editor: Addressing the issue of the Thrift Shop cat and the Library Club Board of Directors, the request was not a mandated “eviction notice.” The request asking to have the well-being of the cat evaluated, based on that evaluation decide within 30 days. Concerns were

EZRA, the Thrift Store cat, is at the center of a controversy at the South Tillamook County Library Club’s thrift shop in Pacific City. The STCLC’s board of directors is evaluating whether to allow the cat to remain a resident in the thrift store or not. related to the customers well-being — not an attempt to usurp anyone’s powers, or jurisdiction. There was no malicious intent. Why would the board even deal with something like the cat? That is a good question. There is no good answer. It was a mistake. We all make them. Hurtful, sometimes slanderous, comments in emails and letters is uncalled for. The result, resignations from the board because of it and the embarrassment these emails and letters have caused. Justified? It would have been better for the board to have been challenged privately and asked to reconsider rather than to put forth a myriad of insults. It’s disappointing that a “lynching party” be sent out to get these people — the board — over a matter that could have been easily resolved. Board members are volunteers that have made a commitment to serve the community in the stewardship of a valuable community asset. I applaud these people for their service, not condemn them. It is difficult to get people to make a commitment to volunteer. Let somebody else do it. Go to the library and the bookshelves are orderly, the building in and out, the restrooms, are all clean. The landscaping is well cared for, along with the electricity and water somehow that gets done. It’s magic. The library belongs to the members, but only a few members show any interest. Few to none members (are) in attendance at the regular meetings, which are held specifically for the members. Also, the board meetings are open to all public. The board meeting is the members opportunity to have their say rather than injudicious emails and letters. Change is made by getting involved. If any of the members who responded to the cat saga were at that board meeting, then this would not have happened. Richard Potempa Pacific City

news&community Reach the Beach bicycle ride to return in 2020 The American Lung Association of Oregon has reportedly come to an agreement with leaders from Tillamook County in a plan to keep the finish line of the 2020 Reach the Beach in Pacific City. During a Sept. 18 meeting which featured representatives from ALAO and the Pacific City-Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce, as well as Tillamook County Sheriff Jim Horton, Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District Chief Jim Oeder, and Tillamook County Commissioner David Yamamoto, it was decided that the ride, which is the largest fundraiser for ALAO, would once again finish at Cape Kiwanda next year, but be routed via Resort Drive, the Woods Bridge and Sand Lake Road rather than by traveling Brooten Road through Pacific City’s downtown core. The change came about following a series of meetings held by the Chamber, which hosted an online survey that showed some reticence from both business members and Chamber members regarding the ride finishing in Pacific City. “(ALAO representatives) made a strong, powerful case that they’re so far down the road that it would be really difficult to change (the finish location) for 2020,” said Doug Olson, who was representing the Chamber along with PCNV Chamber President Susan Amort. Olson said that officials also discussed past problems with flaggers directing traffic and got assurances

from ALAO that traffic control services would be improved. “The meeting went well,” said Cathy Gidley, executive director of ALAO. “I think (the plan) addresses the issues that were brought up in the survey and at the Chamber meeting. (The plan) completely bypasses all the businesses that were affected, and we feel like it’s a great answer to those issues. We’re looking forward to working with the local community and having a wonderful 30th anniversary event and again finishing in Pacific City. We appreciated the (chance) to be at the same table and work through the issues.” “Moving the bikes out of (the downtown) area should help relieve how the traffic flows,” Oeder told the Sun. He added that the success of the plan will be reviewed immediately following next year’s event to determine if the changes sufficiently addressed concerns of Pacific City businesses and residents. “It was a very good meeting,” said Horton. “I think (ALAO) was able to address all of our concerns from a safety standpoint. I thought it was very positive.” The plan, though, does face one hurdle. ODOT will have to approve the change from turning left on Highway 101 to Brooten Road to turning left onto Resort Drive. But noting that either way bicycle traffic would have to cross the highway, Horton said he didn’t think it would be a major issue getting the change approved.

FARMER CREEK BRIDGE is slated to be replaced during a planned project that will also include realigning and widening the road to improve line-of-sight distance from Farmer Creek Bridge on Hwy. 101 south of Beaver.

Farmer Creek Bridge replacement in the works A project that will replace the Farmer Creek Bridge on U.S. 101 south of Beaver and realign a section of the highway is in the works. In addition to building a new bridge, the project includes the realignment and widening of the road to improve line-ofsight distance from Farmer Creek Road, new guardrails, striping and traffic signs and improvements to the wayside. In order to minimize delays and maintain traffic lanes in both directions, the project will be done in stages. At times, traffic control will require 24-hour flagging with pilot cars. When this is necessary, travelers can expect up to 20-minute delays. Project staging will include temporary widening of the road, constructing most of the new bridge, realigning traffic on to the new (partial) structure, demolition of the old bridge, reconstructing the

Harvest Festival to bring music, baked goods, auction and more to NVS on Oct. 5

T

he bounty of the autumn harvest will be celebrated on Saturday, Oct. 5, when Neskowin Valley School hosts its 37th annual Harvest Festival, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., with a day full of seasonal treats, activities, live music and more. Held on the school’s grounds at 10005 Slab Creek Rd., just south of Neskowin, the event will feature an outdoor market where local farmers and artisans will be onsite offering produce, fresh-pressed apple cider, and artisan crafts. Food will be available for purchase at the Slab Creek Grill and the Bakery Cafe. Attendees will be able to dine on meals of tacos and taco bowls at the grill and satisfy their sweet tooth at the bakery café where they can enjoy sugary temptations such as cinnamon rolls, pumpkin bread, scones, caramel apples and more. As well, craft beer provided by Beachcrest Brewing Company, Rusty Truck Brewing and Pelican Brewing will be poured in the beer garden. There will also be a wine table, where attendees can sample a variety of wines. The school hopes to raise between $25,000 and $30,000 during the event, which is the largest fundraiser of the year for NVS. Funds raised help keep tuition affordable. “This is a chance for parents to help support the school,” said NVS head of school Jon Paxman. “We’re a small independent school. (This fundraiser) really helps keep tuition low and promote our theme of art and ecology.” An important aspect of the fundraiser is the event’s silent auction, which will include more than 100 items donated by local businesses. Open all day, the auction will feature in excess of $10,000 worth of items. Amongst the selections being auctioned off will be excursions, gift cards, tickets to sporting events, general merchandise, wine, and fine art. Children, too, can join in the fun with a variety of activities and field games planned — including a garden tea party, children’s arts and crafts, face painting and more. And with music on tap all day long, they’ll be plenty of tunes to set the mood. The slate of music includes Jon Paxman (10-10:30 a.m.), Carolina (10:45-11:30 a.m.), George Thompson & Tom Tucker (noon-12:45 p.m.), NVS Ukulele Kids (12:45-1 p.m.), Donna and the Side Effects (1:30-2:30 p.m.), ZuhG Trio (2:45-4 p.m.), and a “special guest” (4:15-5:30 p.m.).

SOLVE VOLUNTEERS worked together on Saturday, Sept. 21 to collect an estimated 28,261 pounds of trash and marine debris from Oregon’s beaches, parks, waterways, urban spaces and natural areas. Above, volunteers pick up debris at Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area in Pacific City.

Sprucing up the Shore Over 28,000 pounds of litter removed by SOLVE volunteers Beaches at Cape Kiwanda and Neskowin were amongst more than 140 project sites throughout Oregon that hosted more than 5,500 volunteers who worked on Saturday, Sept. 21, to help take care of Oregon as part of the annual SOLVE Beach & Riverside Cleanup, presented by the Oregon Lottery. This year, an estimated 28,261 pounds of trash and marine debris were collected from beaches, parks, waterways, urban spaces and natural areas across the state. Beach cleanups took place along the entire Oregon Coast, from Astoria to Brookings, attracting thousands of visitors and locals alike to aid in the fight against marine debris. The most common items found during the event were tiny plastic pieces, cigarette butts, discarded fishing rope, glass, and plastic bottles. According to SOLVE, the success of the Beach & Riverside Cleanup is due in large part to dedicated project leaders, beach captains, the garbage and recycling companies that donate their services, the thousands of volun-

teers who donate their time and energy and the event’s presenting sponsor, the Oregon Lottery. “It amazes me just how many people come out to clean up Oregon each year during SOLVE’s Beach & Riverside Cleanup. It makes me proud to say I am an Oregonian, and to belong to such a caring community” says SOLVE’s CEO, Kris Carico. “If it weren’t for the volunteers, project leaders, beach captains, and sponsors who are willing to step up and get the work done, none of this progress would be possible.” SOLVE is a statewide non-profit organization that brings Oregonians together to improve the state’s environment and build a legacy of stewardship. Since 1969, the organization has grown from a small, grassroots group to a national model for volunteer action. Today, SOLVE mobilizes and trains volunteers of all ages across Oregon to clean and restore neighborhoods and natural areas, and to build a legacy of stewardship for the state.

Lions focus on students’ eyesight

Photo by Tim Hirsch

MEMBERS OF THE NESTUCCA VALLEY LIONS CLUB volunteered their time to conduct a free eye screening at Nestucca Valley Elementary School on Monday, Sept. 19. Supported by the Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation, the screening served approximately 250 students. For more information about the program, visit olshf.org.

Nestucca Fire inches closer to adding levy-funded staffing Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District’s search for candidates to fill six firefighter positions that were created by a five-year, $4.007 million operating levy that voters passed last May has reached another milestone. Twenty candidates passed the initial testing requirements, which included passing a National Testing Institute test and a combat and physical ability test, as well as producing certifications that include Firefighter 1, Emergency Medical Technician, and Hazardous Material Operation and Awareness. The candidates have been ranked according to where they scored on the NTI test and next will be asked to answer questions from a panel that will be comprised of firefighter volunteers, Nestucca Fire board members and community

members. The panel will be querying the applicants on Oct. 19 and 20. Interviews with Fire Chief Jim Oeder and Deputy Chief Mickey Hays will follow on Oct. 24 and then the district’s Civil Service Board will ratify the selections. Oeder told the Sun that it’s his hope to have the board both ratify the six preferred applicants as well as a list of six more should openings happen down the line. Once six candidates accept employment offers, the district will do background and reference checks. The planned start date for the new firefighters is Dec. 2. “(We) feel pretty good about the list of (applicants),” Oeder said. “There’s some really good, quality candidates for the positions.”

BLM employee suffers fatal injury in crash east of Beaver Emergency responders responded to a Sept. 19 call in which a BLM employee, later identified as Michael Steigh, age 64, of Willamina, crashed a tractor east of Beaver. The incident came to the attention of rescue personnel when Tillamook 911 was notified by a Bureau of Land Management employee at approximately 6:47 p.m. of the crash, which occurred off of Nestucca River Road, about 13 miles east of Beaver. Preliminary investigation revealed that Steigh was driving a tractor with a brush-cutter attachment. The fact that he was an hour and a half overdue initiated a search by BLM personnel. They

located Steigh in his tractor about 75100 feet down, off Nestucca River Road. They reported the driver was unresponsive but were also having difficulty making their way down the steep hill. Once personnel from Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District arrived on scene and reached the crash site, they confirmed Steigh had sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased. The cause of the crash is still under investigation. Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by BLM, Nestucca Rural Fire Protection, Oregon State Police, Polk County Sheriff’s Office, and the Tillamook County Chaplains.

Longboarders treated to ideal conditions at Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic

he 21st annual Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic & Brewfest is in the books — and, as a fundraiser for a planned skate park in Pacific City, it was one for the record books. Alhough exact numbers weren’t available at press time, organizer Jeff Mollencop, of Moment Surf Co., said he expects the event, which was held Sept. 14-15, will have raised approximately $30,000 by the time all is said and done. For comparison, the event, beginning with when the Brewfest was added, has a history of raising approximately $15,000 a year. The contest itself was treated to good conditions, which Mollencop said not only made for a great competition but helped in the success of the Brewfest. “The Brewfest was busier than ever,” Mollencop said. “I can never express gratitude enough for the Pelican for how great they’ve been to work with and for donating all the beer and running the Brewfest.” The event’s success as a fundraiser was also owed to its newest addition — Coastal Craft, a surfboard shaping event that was held on Sunday. Mollencop said the new event helped raise additional funds via the auctioning off of the boards that were shaped as well drawing people in to watch the demonstrations and buy raffle tickets, beer and food. “People loved it,” Mollencop said. “It was really entertaining.” He also credited the silent auction, which he said was bigger than ever, as key to the larger amount raised this year. As for the surfing, Mollencop said he was thankful for the beautiful weather and fun surf on Saturday. Sunday, though, was a little different matter. “We woke up Sunday morning and it was pouring down rain and had gotten windy,” he said. “So, we delayed everything about an hour. We knew the incoming tide was going to help and the wind was supposed to die. And, by about 10 o’clock it was even better (surf) conditions than Saturday. We got really fortunate.” For their efforts, top competitors were recognized for their accomplish-

ments. In order of finish, top three finishers in each category were: Walter Behrends, Campbell Behrends, Jonah Catt (Kids with Parent Division); Tober Kling, Haden McAlister, Harbur Green (Kids 12 & Under); Kai Huggin, Justin Buford, Mitch Palmer (13-17 Division); Max Cameron, Deklyn Wood, Cody Watten (18-29 Division); David Schiaffino, Brian Cramer,

COASTAL CRAFT, a surfboard shaping event held on Sept. 15 as part of the Cape Kiwanda Longboard Contest, attracted large crowds, as did the Brewfest on Sept. 14.

Justin Snodgrass (30-39 Division); Tor Rockness, Adam Marteeny, Jesse Sinclaire (40-49 Division); Rob Russo, Matt Flotho, Hollie Workman (50-59 Division); Pete Cochran, Ben Cockcroft, Paul Snodgrass (60-69 Division); Steve Warner, Paul Klarin (70 & Older Division); and Cathy Harding, Kelly Aldinger, Leslie Palotas (Women’s Division). “(The event) was great because Saturday was so gorgeous — the beach was packed, the brewfest was packed, and everybody was having such a good time,” Mollencop said. “On Sunday, during the final, it was such a blast because the surf was so good. There was still a ton of people there watching and participating in it. It seemed to be just as busy on Sunday as it was on Saturday (and) how well we did raising money is a reflection of that.” For more information about the event, visit capekiwandalongboardclassic. com.

IN A SEPT. 21 DISCUSSION on a proposed Tsunami Hazardous Overlay Zone, held at Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District’s station in Hebo, Tillamook County Community Development Director Sarah Absher stressed that the overlay wouldn’t impact existing lots or developments. According to Community Development, it is “not the intent or purpose of this zone to require relocation of or otherwise regulate existing development within the Tsunami Hazard Overlay Zone,” but it’s intent is “to control, direct and encourage new development and redevelopment such that, over time, the community’s exposure to tsunami risk will be reduced.” The Tillamook County Planning Commission will take up the matter during a public hearing on Thursday, Oct. 10, 7 p.m., at Tillamook County Courthouse.

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Oregon State Police, Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office and the Lincoln City Police Department. It was prosecuted by Frank R. Papagni, Jr., Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, and Michelle Branam, Lincoln County District Attorney. Tillamook County Sheriff Jim Horton said he extends his thanks to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Oregon State Police, Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office TNT, and the Lincoln City Police Department for their help in keeping a dangerous criminal from continuing to victimize our communities. “It was a lengthy investigation involving a number of agencies,” Horton told the Sun. “Our Tillamook narcotics team was right in the middle (of the investigation) from the start. We’re very pleased with the outcome. A 20-year prison sentence for someone involved in naracotics distribution and (illegal) weapons is a win for the community.” The case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN). PSN is the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.

VTC staff to offer training sessions for front-line employees The staff of Tillamook Coast Visitors Association (dba Visit Tillamook Coast), the destination marketing organization for Tillamook County, is now officially certified as trainers for the internationally recognized Guest Service Gold® program. The training program is developed by the American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute, and supported in Oregon by Travel Oregon and the Oregon Restaurant and Lodging Association Education Foundation, and on the coast by Oregon Coast Visitors Association. “Our staff believes in building a welcoming hospitality culture throughout the county,” said Nan Devlin, executive director of Visit Tillamook Coast (VTC). “You can travel to the most beautiful country in the world, stay in the nicest hotel, or eat at a famous restaurant, but if treated as if no one cares you’re there, you won’t go back. It’s happened to all of us. We want our customers and guests to have a memorable, local experience. It’s the most effective way to encourage return visits, which is the best way to invest in our businesses.” In January 2019, VTC led a training session funded by Oregon Coast Visitors Association for the Big Wave Café in

Manzanita. The café is now a designated Certified Guest Service Gold® Property. “As an owner and a chef, I can tell you that usually we say we are too busy to train or it is too expensive, but this training will pay for itself,” said Brian Williams, Big Wave Cafe. “The feedback from the team was off the charts and everyone found it to be time well spent.” In addition to the VTC staff (Nan Devlin, Amy Blackburn and Julie Hurliman), two general managers of Pelican Brewing, Carly Dye and Miranda Bosely, also gained certification as trainers. Ken Henson, director of food and beverage for Pelican Brewing, has been a Guest Service Gold trainer for more than two years, and was recently honored by the Oregon Restaurant and Lodging Association for having trained more front-line staff than any other trainer in Oregon. Visit Tillamook Coast plans to offer the Guest Service Gold® certification classes, which take approximately 3.5 to 4 hours to complete, beginning in January. For more information about the program, go to www.OregonGuestService.com. To schedule a training session, contact Nan Devlin at 503-842-2672 or nan@tillamookcoast.com.

“Service Even After The Sale”

Jon Michael Walsh, 46, of Neskowin, Oregon, was recently sentenced to 20 years in federal prison and 10 years supervised release for possessing with intent to distribute methamphetamine and heroin and illegally possessing a firearm as a convicted felon. According to court documents, in February 2018, Walsh was on post-prison supervision for a 2015 federal firearms conviction when probation officers conducted a routine search of his vehicle outside a community center and found a stolen loaded pistol and concealed packages of methamphetamine and heroin. During a subsequent search of Walsh’s Neskowin residence, officers found additional distribution quantities of methamphetamine and heroin. Walsh later admitted to buying and selling methamphetamine and heroin in Lincoln and surrounding coastal counties to support his own methamphetamine addiction. U.S. District Court Judge Michael J. McShane also ordered Walsh to forfeit the stolen pistol and any property derived from his drug trafficking activities. On March 8, 2019, Walsh pleaded guilty to one count each of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession with intent to distribute heroin and felon in possession of a firearm. Walsh admitted to dealing methamphetamine and heroin while possessing the loaded pistol to protect himself and drug supplies. Walsh previously served nine years in federal prison for distributing methamphetamine while in possession of a firearm after being sentenced in June 1998. This case was investigated by the

Fine-Tuning Their Strokes

TOP COACHES from around the world will instruct paddlers during the 2019 Lumpy Waters Symposium, Oct. 4-6 at Cape Kiwanda and other nearby coastal locales. Classes range from short boat surfing to mastering boat control in conditions to rough water rescues. Classes are aimed at advanced beginners and up. For more information, visit lumpywaters.com.

Stimulus to host ‘Coffee with a Cop’ event on Oct. 2 The men and women who keep Tillamook County safe will be participating in a cordial encounter with residents of the community when they participate in a series of three National Coffee with a Cop Day events on Wednesday, Oct. 2. The series of events will include an event co-hosted by Stimulus Coffee + Bakery, 33105 Cape Kiwanda Dr., Pacific City, from 2:30-4 p.m. Events will also be held at Wanda’s Café in Nehalem at 8 a.m. and at Five Rivers Coffee in Tillamook at 11 a.m. Tillamook County Sheriff Jim Horton, who will attend the event along with others from his office, told the Sun that he sees the event as a way to increase community outreach and offer a chance for the public to get to know him, his command staff and his deputies. “It’s our goal to interact with the public more than we have in the past,” he said. Inspired by the cliche about officers and their coffee shop donuts, National Coffee with a Cop Day is billed as an opportunity to encourage communities to hold events that will bring citizens and those on patrol together. Organizers say the opportunity for open dialogue, breaking down barriers, and improving communication creates a valuable

bridge to relationships in the county’s communities. Coffee with A Cop was launched in Hawthorne, California in 2011 when officers from the Hawthorne Police Department were looking for ways to interact more successfully with the citizens they served each day. They sought ways to interact with their community every day. As a result, they established Coffee with a Cop events to do just that. The Hawthorne Police Department hit upon a plan to break through the barriers that have been built over the years — a cup of coffee. In 2016, the first National Coffee with a Cop Day took place across the nation. Coffee with a Cop events are now held in all 50 states in what organizers say has been one of the most successful community-oriented events in bringing residents and law enforcement together across the country. The program has also expanded to outside the United States to Canada, Europe, Australia, Africa, and Latin America. Promoters say that Coffee with a Cop opens the door for interactions outside of crisis situations that typically bring law enforcement officers and community members together.

More than 35 people attended a ribbon cutting at the Partners for Rural Innovation building on Sept. 12 to get a first-hand look at and the option to drive Tillamook Bay Community College’s new Truck Driver Training Simulator. The simulator is an addition to the Truck Driver Training program launched by the college last year. The simulator can be used to train new drivers on navigating adverse weather conditions and road hazards and is programmable to simulate any type of driving challenge. It records and evaluates the sessions to show improvement and progress. It is the only one of its kind in this region. “The need for both a CDL training program and a simulator was brought to our attention by the local trucking industry,” said Dr. Ross Tomlin, president of TBCC. “We are very excited to bring these new resources to the community. We began the program almost one year ago and have successfully held five classes here in Tillamook, and expanded with three classes in Clatsop County upon the request of Clatsop Community College. We have graduated 18 students and many are now employed locally.” The simulator cost $115,000 and was funded entirely through grants from The Ford Family Foundation, USDA,

and a grant from the Tillamook County Creamery Association Community Enrichment Committee Fund. “The simulator is for rent to trucking companies who would like to use it to train employees. Right now, that training takes place here, but the goal is to make it mobile so the unit can travel to whereever the training is needed,” added Arlene Soto, executive director of the TBCC Small Business Development Center who facilitated the purchase of the new equipment. The TBCC Truck Driver Training program includes classroom curriculum as well as 120 hours of hands-on training in the truck, which prepares students for the driving test to receive a Class A Commercial Driver’s License. The simulator will be used to enhance the training. Students also learn how to work with paper logbooks, trip planning, and the pre-trip inspection of a commercial vehicle. The next class is scheduled to begin Oct. 21. Those interested in renting time on the new simulator or learning more about the next Truck Driver Training course should contact Arlene Soto at TBCC, 503-842-8222 x1410, or visit tillamookbaycc.edu/commercial-driverslicense-cdl-training/.
