Not On Our Ocean

Futures Council workshop elicits concern about proposed Pacific City-Neskowin ocean energy site By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun


iting conflict with fishing opportunities and viewsheds that wave buoys supporting an ocean energy would bring, Tillamook County residents voiced their opposition to any such development in the Pacific City-Neskowin area during a Tillamook Futures Council hosted public meeting on Nov. 8. The meeting was held in response to the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development’s decision not to hold one of its three public meetings in the county. The Futures Council forwarded the public input to DLCD in advance of TSPAC’s Nov. 8 meeting. Currently an 8.5 square mile site located between Pacific City and Neskowin is one of 10 sites still under consideration by the Territorial Sea Plan Advisory Committee for recommendation to the DLCD. As this paper goes to press, TSPAC is meeting in Newport with the goal of agreeing on a recommendation. The Ocean Policy Advisory Committee is also planning on submitting its own recommendation to DLCD following a Dec. 4 meeting. A final decision is expected on Jan. 4 by DLCD. TSPAC member at large and Pacific City resident Dave Yamamoto told the group that ocean energy on the Oregon Coast is attractive to developers because of its location on the eastern side of the Pacific Ocean — and its accompanying “tremendous energy potential.” A second benefit of development here is the presence of electrical grid connections, which greatly reduces the development cost. In response to the desire for companies to develop this new technology, DLCD started the processes of developing a Territorial Sea Plan four years ago that would guide development of the ocean. That process is nearing completion, but opposition is growing. “All (of the Pacific City Heights Neighborhood Association members) are adamantly opposed to this,” said Pacific City resident Larry Rouse. “Our position is that right off our shore line we have Haystack Rock, which is a national wildlife refuge that’s utilized by endangered species and you also have a state marine park that surrounds the coast of Cape Kiwanda. It is our feeling that these two things makes this area off limits for production of windmills and buoys. There are same places where we shouldn’t have development.” The threat of decreasing home

The Pacific City Doryman’s Association is adamantly opposed to designating a 8.5 square mile stretch of ocean between Pacific City and Neskowin as a site open to ocean energy development. values was also raised. Realtor Barbara Taylor said that because views are such an important part of real estate values, she feared the siting of a ocean energy development could damage the housing industry here. Members of the Pacific City Doryman’s Association also voiced their strong opposition to including the area in a list of sites open to ocean energy development. “We will not tolerate the destruction of our fleet and our viewshed and one of the most popular world-famous places on the entire Oregon Coast,” said cochair of the Doryman’s Association Paul Hanneman. And fellow co-chair Craig Wenrick also raised concerns. “Anywhere these wave buoys are going in, they are going to displace fishing or recreation,” he said. “They’re taking up land. Anywhere they’re going to hurt. But when you take Pacific City, you are also adding a 100-year history of a small boat port. We have limited access; our boats are 22-feet long; we can only go so far (and) we have to come back that night. Where that (proposed ocean energy site) map is, it takes away our prime area. It takes away our access south of that area because we’re not big enough to go out and around and come back in. It’s a safety hazard. Right across from the Nestucca River we have the world famous salmon run (and) steelhead run. A half a volt difference in trolling wire will repel salmon. And now we’re going to put a bunch of extension cords across (from) a world-famous fishing river? “When you think about Pacific City, you think it’s a really nice tourist town. Yeah, but we’re really depressed. Sixty

percent of our kids are on reduced or free lunch program. We’re struggling down here. So what’s our draw in Pacific City? Do we say come to our casino? Come to our cheese factory? Come to our bowling alleys? Come to our movie theaters? Outlet malls? What do we have? We have view, and we have water. We have surfers; we have jet skiers; we have the dory fleet; we have recreational fishermen; we have commercial fishermen. We’re worldfamous for being an unspoiled area. This is the biggest boondoggle.” Despite the opposition, the Oregon Lottery funded Oregon Wave Energy Trust is eager to make Oregon into a world leader in the emerging industry. “It’s about jobs,” said Jason Busch, OWET executive director. He added that an economic study has estimated that a mature ocean energy industry would bring $2.4 billion to the Oregon economy. But Lincoln County Commissioner and TSPAC member Terry Thompson isn’t buying that pitch. “Yeah, there’s a lot of money in installation, but once that’s up and running, basically all you have left is a few maintenance jobs and you’ll have one or two people monitoring sub stations. Money is going to be made, but its going to be made in the (Willamette) valley.” “The fishing industry isn’t against good cheap renewable energy but they do have a problem with replacing renewable agriculture (with ocean energy), which (are serving) about 1,400 jobs related to fishing. It’s the fishing industry that’s going to be the loser.” For more information on the Territorial Sea Plan process, visit

Community Center hosts Thanksgiving potluck


ooking for a place to count your blessings with your friends and family? The Kiawanda Community Center welcomes all to what has become a long-standing Thanksgiving Day tradition at “The Home of the Dory Fleet.” On Thursday, Nov. 22, the center will host a turkey day potluck starting at 1 p.m. Though organizers are asking those interested in attending to request an invitation by calling 503-965-7900, center

director Erma Lafreniere said that no one will be turned away from the feast. Lafreniere says the event serves as a chance for the center to open its arms to the greater community as they welcome all — what she describes as “our extended family.” For more information on the community center’s annual Thanksgiving potluck, call 503-965-7900. Kiawanda Community Center is located at 34600 Cape Kiwanda Drive in Pacific City.

Cooking up the Last Supper Blacktail Cafe to close after Thanksgiving


lacktail Cafe, which reopened in Pacific City on March 2 after serving the Cloverdale area for two years, will serve its last meal on Thanksgiving Day, noon-5 p.m. The cafe is located at the site of the old Riverhouse Restaurant at 34450 Brooten Road. Owner/operators Sandra and Waylon Porter say the decision comes with regrets over not being able to serve their many fans but with hope for the future. The couple has elected to concentrate their efforts on running Farmer Creek Gardens, a 40-acre vegetable and flower farm located between Hebo and Beaver, which they are purchasing from Sandra’s grandparents. Though the couple has been running the farm since last summer, the demands of not only running the farm and restaurant buy also Waylon’s Porter Excavation has proven too

much. “It was enjoyable to serve dorycaught fish and fresh vegetables to lots of great people and customers during our time here,” said Sandra. “We’re thankful to all of our customers, but this will be a better fit for our family.” The tasty treats yielded from Sandra’s talents in the kitchen and Waylon’s knack for catching fish aboard his dory won’t disappear altogether, though. Sandra said she intends to continue hosting a booth at the seasonal Neskowin Farmer’s Market, which will feature baked goods, fresh fish and produce harvested from Farmer Creek Gardens. For more information about Blacktail Cafe’s Thanksgiving offerings, call 503-965-6722. For information on Farmer Creek Gardens, call 503-8012430.

he Pacific City-Woods Community Planning Advisory committee will host a presentation by the Oregon Department of Aviation on the review of 16 non-federally funded airports that the agency hopes will determine if any should be closed during its Nov. 19 meeting. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. at Kiawanda Community Center, 34600 Cape Kiwanda Drive, Pacific City. As reported in the Nov. 2 issue of the Sun, ODA is looking at the long-term feasibility at the 16 airports, a process that Mitch Swecker, director of aviation at ODA, says will include a significant outreach effort to the community. Swecker, who will be joined by Matthew Maass, state airports manager, and John Wilson,

Jr., airport operations specialist, at the CPAC presentation, says that amongst the issues ODA will take into account in the review process is the airport’s safety, its value to the community, its short- and long-term financial viability, and its value to emergency services. Also on the CPAC’s agenda is the introduction of Tillamook County’s new director of community development, John Boyd, a report on the Oct. 25 workshop on accessory dwelling units, and reports from the land use committee, community plan review committee, lighting committee, and an update on the CPAC web site.

Taking on New Territory Gomberg, Roblan will be South County’s new legislative representatives By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun ore than 83 percent of Tillamook County registered voters did their civic duty on Tuesday, Nov. 6 — or earlier for those that mailed in their ballots — electing a wide range-of candidates including a new state representative and state senator for South Tillamook County. Getting the nod in the Oregon State Senate, 5th district, which will be the new district to encompass South Tillamook County in 2013, was Arnie Roblan (D-Coos Bay). Roblan bested republican Scott Roberts, capturing 55 percent of the vote. In Tillamook County it was a little closer with Roblan attracting 1,989 votes and Roberts 1,890. “I am really humbled by the votes and the support I got from all the counties,” Roblan told the Sun.

Digitizing the Landscape Stimulus Espresso Cafe to host photographer Julius Jortner at Nov. 17 artist reception


ake a look at our slice of paradise as seen through the eyes of Pacific City photographer Julius Jortner during the artist’s exhibit at Stimulus Espresso Café’s ocean view setting at the Inn at Cape Kiwanda. The exhibit featuring scenes focusing on birds, cows and shoreline landscapes runs now through Jan, 7, 2013. The café will host an artist reception on Saturday, Nov. 17, 6-8 p.m. It is the photographer’s fourth show at Stimulus. Jortner says he carries his small digital camera with him almost everywhere and prints selected pictures using long-life inks on acid-free photo papers. His motto is, “Everywhere one goes, almost, there’s a picture to be had.” While he says most of his images are “pure” photos, Jortner is exhibiting some prints — all based on photographs — that have digitally added patches of color, which he calls “colored photos,” as well as some that have been digitally converted to pure black-on-white images, which he calls “binary photos.” Open daily from 6 a.m.-6 p.m., Stimulus is located at 35105 Cape Kiwanda Drive, Pacific City — just across from the beach at Cape Kiwanda. For more information, call 503-965-4661. These are going to go into our bean soup bags. Lena Bentsen,Jo rack, Mary smith

Photographer Julius Jortner will be feted during an artist reception on Nov. 17 at Stimulus Espresso Cafe. In addition to showing straight photographs, Jortner is experimenting with what he calls “binary photos,” prints in just black and white (no greys) based on digital photographs. This above image is called “Cows in Cloverdale.”

Auction for Nestucca Sanctuary closes Dec. 5 By VICKY HIRSCH of the Sun


any view South Tillamook County as an outdoor paradise. And now a little slice of that paradise is for sale — the 93-plus acre Nestucca Sanctuary, located five miles south of Pacific City next to the Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge, is being offered to the general public for the first time since it was developed more than 70 years ago. The property was originally developed as a Jesuit retreat, and includes a 4,597 square foot lodge, 2,395 square foot dormitory, 1,740 square foot dining hall, and four cabins within a short walk of the main buildings. Views of the Pacific Ocean and Nestucca Bay are visible from both the lodge and dormitory. The sale includes all furnishings, personal property, and equipment. The two story wood-frame lodge can house 14 guests and includes a large open living area with fireplace, kitchen, library, dining area, and laundry facilities. The single story dormitory has ten dorm rooms with two bathrooms and a basement work shop/storage area. The dormitory and cabins are in need of significant repairs or improvements or could be

demolished and replaced. All buildings have electric heat. The published reserve price is $1,295,000 and sealed bids are due by 5 p.m. Dec. 12. The main block of property is zoned Recreation Management. Current use is pre-existing, non-conforming land use. Commercial recreation uses are subject to a conditional use and could include campgrounds, group lodging facilities, and meeting and tourism facilities. The property is well-stocked with primarily Sitka spruce and red alder and a timber cruise was conducted by Northwest Forestry Services in 2011. Access is gained via an easement from Highway 101 along Christensen Road through the wildlife refuge, and an additional easement is through private land. Inspection is through gated entry and by appointment only. Call the Reality Marketing/Northwest Auction Information Office at 800-8453524 to schedule an appointment on either Saturday, Nov. 17 or Saturday, Dec. 1.

NEWS & COMMUNITY Pioneer Museum hosts textile show The Tillamook County Pioneer Museum is hosting an International Textile Show & Silent Auction that will feature textile displays from Nov. 5-25, during which tile silent auction bids will be accepted. A reception on Nov. 25, 1-3 p.m., will offer a chance at final auction bidding. Proceeds benefit Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center. The show will feature works from the Mapusha Weavers, a cooperative of women weavers based in the village of Acornhoek in the Limpopo province of South Africa. The group came together in 1973 with the help of a local Catholic missionary as a way for unemployed women in the village to learn a craft and make money to support their families. Trained in the skills of weaving and sewing, the six women that now make up Mapusha create an array of one-of-kind, hand-spun, handwoven, and hand-dyed textiles in a variety of colors and fabrics. The income from Mapusha’s products goes to support the women’s dependent family members. Judy Miller, who helped start the Mapusha Weavers, will also be on hand for the reception event to tell the group’s story. Miller has a degree in textile design and a history of weaving on a tapestry loom in the Navaho style. She began advocacy for the group by locating a source of wool, found an initial commission, created an Internet presence, introduced the art of abstract design to the weavers, and secured sponsorship for eight new apprentices from the community. The current Mapusha Weaving Cooperative took shape and has been moving forward ever since. Miller has remained in the village as a stalwart independent community organizer. During the reception, she will provide insight and information about the Cooperative and the amazing women that comprise the organization. The Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center is a non-profit organization made up of individuals from all walks of life, both paid staff and volunteers with a mission of working together to eliminate domestic and sexual violence. For more information, call 503-842-9486.

Nestucca Valley Backpack Program Volunteers Sue Johnson and Judy Robb load a car full of backpacks laden with food for needy students. The program has experienced increased need and is seeking donations to fund the effort.

A Pack of Plenty By VICKY HIRSCH for the Sun


he need has never been greater. A hundred backpacks, a hundred hungry mouths. That’s what it’s all about for the Nestucca Valley Backpack Program, which seeks to provide students from low-income families full bellies and the increased energy and academic abilities that goes along with it. Now in its fourth year, the program is a nonprofit, community-sponsored organization that works directly with the Nestucca schools to provide meals for food insecure children. This helps cover their needs over the long weekend when, otherwise they might be hungry, and allows them to be ready to come to school Monday ready to learn. But with the increased demand, comes an inflated need. And that’s where you can come in. Rack says that the program is not fully funded for the 2012-13 school year. So far, 130 kids are signed up for the program, with 100 backpacks going out a week. Each backpack contains and average of $12 in food items (with an actual worth of $20) and the program runs for the 35 weeks of the school year. Total

cost for those 100 backpacks is $42,000 and Rack says that the program is short $14,000 for the year. Various options to bridge the gap include serving less students, reducing the number of weeks for the program, pursue a grant, add a fund raising event, and bringing in more donations. Community members have the option of sponsoring a child for one month at a cost of $48, six months for a total of $288, or for one calendar year — $450. The program got its start when Rack retired to the coast and was looking for an opportunity to give back to the community. She asked around for what needs there were and hunger among school children topped the list. A similar program existed in Lincoln City and she and Carol Boring threw themselves into getting the program into the Nestucca Valley schools. Twenty active volunteers meet and fill 100 backpacks a week and deliver them to the schools where they are given to the students on the last school day of the week. The backpacks usually contain three breakfasts and three lunches (Nestucca Valley schools are on a four day school week), with enough calories to get the student through the

weekend. Oftentimes these backpacks are all that stands between a child and being hungry through the weekend. About 60 of the packs go to children in the elementary school and 40 to the high school. “I get to witness everyday generosity and kindness,” Rack said. “People go out of their way to be kind and generous.” Rack says she appreciates how involved the community has been with the program. “This community is unbelievable. I can’t tell of how many people give of their time and money.” Food needed for the packs should be non-perishable, able to survive being in a backpack, reasonably healthy and easily managed by kids. Food comes from the Oregon Food Bank, Fred Meyer, Costco, Delicate Palate Bistro, Tillamook Smoker, Tillamook Cheese Factory, Nathan Hash (tortilla distributor) and food or money donations from other organizations and individuals. Those interested in volunteering or donating can call Jo Rack at 602-5094071 or Carol Boring at 503-398-4654 or write Nestucca Valley Backpack Food Program, PO Box 793, Pacific City, OR 97135.

Tom May returns for 16th annual Thanksgiving weekend concert event at Sportsman’s Pub-n-Grub


ward-winning folk performer Tom May and his funk-focused son Dylan May are all set to punctuate your turkey celebration this year as the Sportsman’s Pub-n-Grub hosts their 16th annual free Thanksgiving weekend concert event, Friday, Nov. 23, 8-11 p.m.. A second, tentativelyplanned show is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 24 at the same time. After more than 37 years as a folk singer, the director and founder of Portland’s “Winterfolk” continues to attract a following with his signature baritone vocals. The live performance will feature Tom May originals, as well as his interpretation of other artists’ creations. Tom May has performed in every state in the Union, as well as Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany and Belgium. His performing venues have included concert halls, small town auditoriums, and humble coffeehouses. His festival appearances include The Kerrville Folk Festival, the Napa Valley Music Festival, Sister’s Folk Festival (Oregon), and The Juan De Fuca Festival (Port Angeles, Wash.). Amongst the acts May has toured with are Gordon Lightfoot, Alabama, and Willie Nelson. He currently performs and tours solo or with his acoustic trio, and has released 12 criticallyacclaimed, widely-distributed albums. His most recent release is the 2008 “Blue Roads, Red Wine.” Climbing high on the folk/Americana charts in the U.S. and overseas, this and all of Tom’s albums have had worldwide radio play.

In addition to his live concert appearances, May has appeared on dozens of radio and television programs. National Public Radio’s syndicated Mountain Stage, Radio Eirhenn’s (Ireland) Andy O’Mahoney show, and the Canadian Broadcast Corporation’s Ian Tyson Show (Television) to name a few. He also produces and hosts his own national radio/TV broadcast, River City Folk. The show is heard weekly on more than 150 radio stations from Alaska to New York. River City Folk highlights the vitality of the acoustic music scene by featuring diverse performers and styles. In 1994, the popularity of the radio program led to a television version of the program. The May-hosted show was produced for the Americana Cable Network out of Branson, Mo. The show aired on commercial and cable outlets across the U.S., and can still be seen on select public television stations. In 2007, Tom coauthored a book for Routledge, New York; “Promoting Your Music; The Lovin of the Game” features interviews with Gordon Lightfoot and others. He also founded and coordinates Winterfolk, an annual SRO benefit concert at Portland’s Aladdin Theatre, which has become the city’s largest annual acoustic music celebration. For more information, call the Sportsman’s Pub-n-Grub at 503-9659991. The longtime place to “come and rub elbows with the locals” can be found in downtown Pacific City at 34975 Brooten Road.

have had many people thank me for documenting some of our local history here in South Tillamook County — even if I don’t always get it right. Another nice thing is that people have been loaning me family pictures to scan so I can use them in Pacific City Sun articles and put them into the vertical historical files at the South Tillamook County Library located here in Pacific City. Terry Learned and Elva Henderson Payne gave me some new ones this week. Here are a couple of the ones Terry gave me. Learned’s grandfather, Victor Learned, Sr., arrived in what was then named Ocean Park (Pacific City) in 1902. Victor Sr. enlisted in the 10th Company of the Coast Artillery and, after being discharged, returned to run his Cloverdale Confectionery Store and Sporting Goods. Victor Sr. married Grace VICTOR LEARNED, Jr., with one of his first dories. Edmunds and worked to clear a 72-acre farm between Cloverdory, powered by an 8.5-horsepower outboard. In dale and Woods.

here’s no bigger thrill for a youngster than catching his or her first chinook salmon — especially when that occurs on the Big Nestucca River. That happened twice this past week. Two different young folks, under their father’s guidance, did just that. The first occurred on Nov. 4 when a father and son came into the shop early in the morning and announced that today his son was hoping to catch his first salmon. It wasn’t but a short while later that he came back with a big smile proudly holding what would be the first of two salmon he would catch that day.

All’s Well That Ends Well Nestucca closes season by shutting out Pirates, 34-0

Great Pizza • Sandwiches Salad Bar • Beer & Wine Hi-Definition 55” Plasma TV

By DEE MOORE for the Sun


fter a series of losses and devastating injuries, the Nestucca Bobcats football team showed the spark of greatness that led to their early season wins in their last game of the year, shutting out the Neah-Kah-Nie Pirates, 34-0. The closing act to Nestucca’s season got a needed assist from the weather. Stormy weather provided field conditions suitable to the ‘Cats game plan. And it didn’t hurt that most of the injured players had finally recovered enough to return to the field. “We got lucky twice,” said coach Jeff Schiewe. “First it was a muddy field … and the weather benefited us, I believe. We also won the toss and the wind was blowing pretty hard so we got to pick the direction that the ball was kicked. “The game started off great,” he added. “I think they knew that they had more speed, so they tried to get outside with a pitch but the muddy ball was fumbled and recovered by Neah-Kah-Nie just in front of the goal line.” Though the team ran almost the exact same plays against the Pirates that they had against Gaston the previous week, the results were much more effective this time. “They had just held us on consecutive drives, so we had to try and pass,” the coach said. “(We had a) 44-yard completion from quarterback Max Kirkendall to Ronny Moffett. Then the next play our quarterback sneaked for the two yards over their (defensive) line.” The first half ended with the ‘Cats leading 10-0. Mud, wind and rain — there was plenty of that. “Did I say it was muddy? On a third and long (the Pirates) faked the run went back to throw and the ball slipped out of his hand and was caught by Austin McKillip for a pick six. It was muddy,” Schiewe said, all but grinning. At the top of the second half Nestucca was

nestucca finished the season with a 34-0 victory against the Neah-Kah-Nie Pirates. ahead 28-0. “The mud was better for us. We are a big football team and they had a hard time getting outside, because the middle of that field was pretty sloppy. So to stay on good turf you have to run short side and that is an advantage to the defense,” the coach said. The ‘Cats put the ball into the endzone one more time for another 6 points and a win. “Nate Parks was a wrecking crew — the kid is effective, and he is always around the ball when it is tackled,” Schiewe said. Though there is no possibility of going to the league play-offs the season did end on a positive note. “It was a good year. We ended up .500 and had a top 20 ranking at season’s end,” the coach said.
