Beautifying the Bayside

Watershed Council plans clean-up of Nestucca Bay for April 20 By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun


ot a free Saturday morning and a willingness to make the extra effort to spruce up our slice of paradise? The Nestucca-Neskowin-Sand Lake Watershed Council is once again hosting their every-other-year clean-up along Nestucca Bay on Saturday, April 20. The effort to rid about five miles along the bay of everything from tires to appliances, plastic debris to farm items starts at 8:30 a.m. at the Pacific City Boat Ramp, located just north of Bob Straub State Park. The clean-up runs until noon. Free parking passes will be available for participants. Gloves will also be provided, but participants are encouraged to dress for weather. Boots are suggested. Watershed Council Director Alex Sifford says that though they often do have volunteers do some clean-up along the beach — particularly at the end of Nestucca Spit — the event is really intended as a complement to SOLVE’s beach cleanup. As such, they focus their cleanup along the bay and — if there’s enough volunteer help — along select spots on the Nestucca River, too. The total scheduled coverage area this year is 4.77 miles. In total, over six previous clean-ups, the effort has netted 8.43 tons of debris with the largest collection — totaling 4,380 pounds, coming in the first-ever event, which was held February 2000. At press time, Sifford had not done a survey of the area to determine the amount of debris that would need to be collected, but planned to do so prior to the clean-up. That said, he speculated that debris along the bayside will likely be less than in past years thanks to a mild winter. Much of the debris found is storm driven thanks to flooding along the river and bay. A significant amount

THE NESTUCCA-NESKOWIN-SAND LAKE WATERSHED COUNCIL is seeking an army of volunteers to help with a clean-up of the shores along Nestucca Bay on Saturday, April 20, starting at 8:30 a.m. For more information, call 503-965-2200. of trash is also believed to be blown in from the ocean. Past events have attracted 40 to 50 volunteers, a number that has included locals of the area as well as visitors inspired to do their part as well. Sifford hopes to have at least that many this year. The event has been moved from its traditional March date to April 20 in hopes of better weather — and out of an expectation of drawing more helping hands. To ferry the army of volunteers, the Watershed Council will have three boats available to ferry workers to and

from various locales along the bay. Sifford says the boats will also prove valuable in moving the trash back to the event’s meeting point. He also bills the effort as appropriate for all ages. “We have spots safe for kids and more remote spots for the adventurous types,” he said. To aid in the effort, the Tillamook County Solid Waste Department is waiving disposal costs — including up to 30 tires. For more information, call 503-965-2200 or visit www.oregoncoast. com/nnwc/.

New tsunami maps available at visitor’s center, library Newly updated tsumani evacuation maps cooperatively produced by the Department of Geology and Mineral Industries and the Oregon Emergency Management Department are now available at several local locations. The series of three maps — one each for the Pacific City, Tierra Del

Mar/Sand Lake, and Neskowin areas — feature updated information gleaned from tsunami exercises conducted in 2010. Nestucca Fire Chief Kris Weiland, who has made the maps available at the South Tillamook County Library, 6200 Camp Street, Pacific City; and the Pacific City-Nestucca Valley Cham-

ber of Commerce Visitor’s Center in Cloverdale, says the updates feature mapping improvements that better show assembly points and evacuation routes. The maps are also available at Nestucca Fire Station No. 87 in Hebo. For more information, call Nestucca Fire at 503-392-3313.

U.S. CONGRESSMAN KURT SCHRADER (center) was treated with a tour of South Tillamook County businesses hosted by Pacific City-Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce President Merrianne Hoffman (at right) on March 27, ahead of an evening town hall at the Tillamook County Courthouse. Above, Schrader visits the Inn at Cape Kiwanda. Also pictured is Kim Carr, general manager of the Inn.

CPAC to host road department director The Pacific City-Woods Community Planning Advisory Committee will host Liane Welch, director of Tillamook County Public Works Department, and Dan Biggs, director of the Tillamook Economic Development Council, during their monthly meeting on Saturday, April 20. The meeting starts at 10:30 a.m. at Pacific Coast Bible Church. Both Welch and Biggs are key players in proposals supported by the Tillamook County Board of Commissioners to help fund improvements to county roads, widely regarded as the worst county roads in Oregon. As director of Public Works, Welch has a detailed knowledge of the state of roads and the impact that a

$15 million bond that will be on the May ballot would have if passed. Commissioners passed a resolution to support the bond on Feb. 20. Biggs is helping to lead a group that is looking at a secondary funding source. Revenue sources being investigated include a transient room tax, seasonal sales tax and food and beverage tax. Also at the Feb. 20 meeting, the commissioners approved a resolution asking the Development Council to bring a recommendation in June 2013 that would fairly tax tourists and raise in the neighborhood of $500,000 a year for county road maintenance.

Volunteers sought to help survivors of abuse


olunteer helpers are being sought to help the survivors of relationship and sexual abuse in our community. Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center is looking for individuals interested in making a difference in the lives of neighbors, friends, and family. TCWRC is offering a free training starting the end of April for those people interested in volunteering or community partners wishing to improve their crisis intervention skills. The 25- hour training would help prepare volunteers in various positions like working with the hotline, direct services, clerical duties, fundraising, publicity, maintenance and odd jobs, Board of Directors, speakers bureau,

and many other opportunities. Organizers say there are volunteer positions for everyone, for every skill set and interest. Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center has been a helping hand since 1982, with the mission to eliminate domestic and sexual violence in our community. Some of their services include emergency shelter, advocacy, support groups, community presentations, and referral information. Those who would like more information on the upcoming volunteer training or would like to set up a requisite pre-screening appointment, can call TCWRC’s Volunteer Coordinator, Ma’at Crook at 503-842-8294 x210.

CHILDREN will have a chance to participate in a free workshop where they will craft bird-themed art as part of the free Community Open House on April 12. Space is limited.


ust how do you improve on a birding festival known for its first-class avian excursions, celebrated for its blues parties and attended for its nationally-known speakers? Here’s one recipe: with the idea that more is better, the Birding & Blues Festival returns April 12-14 with not one but three featured speakers, a live birds of prey presentation by Cascade Raptors Center and two nights of award-winning blues artists. While the event has long featured one nationally-known speaker, this time around three top presenters will be on hand. The event features a slate of birding experts including Paul Baicich, whose presentation “Birds in our Culture” will focus on the role birds have played in many cultures from ancient to modern times. Oregon birder and author Noah Strycker will present a lively slide show, “Among Penguins,” about ice, penguins, and the cold comforts of living and working in Antarctica. Photographer Sharon Beals, “Stick and Twigs, Spiderwebs and Moss: Bird’s Nests as Messengers,” will present her highly detailed nest portraits, telling stories of the lives of their builders. These presentations are part of three days of lectures by respected regional birding experts, as well as Cascade Raptors Center’s live birds of prey exhibition. Other presentations will include topics ranging from Beginning Birding to Coastal Conservation Strategies and Efforts to a look into the lifecycles of seabirds. And just announced is a April 13 slide show presentation that will

highlight the on-the-water birding opportunities of the Tillamook Water Trail. For the outdoor minded, the festival features 14 guided birding hikes to a wide variety of local habitats. Amongst the offerings are trips to Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge, Clay Myers State Natural Area, and Neskowin Marsh. And a presentation by Michelle Burke of the Oregon Falconers Association will showcase the differences between native falcon and hawk species, and how there are Old World counterparts to New World raptor species. Registration for three days of excursions and seminars is $60 for immediate families, $30 for adults and $15 for students. There are also offerings with no charge attached. As part of the event’s free Community Open House on Friday afternoon, kids can take part in a children’s workshop where they’ll create bird-themed art under the direction of Kim and Mark Cavatorta of the Community Arts Project. Also complimentary is “Tales of a Northwest Naturalist,” during which author Jim Anderson and banjo player Jay Bowerman share the natural wonders of the Northwest during a performance featuring owl stories from Jim’s book, “Tales of a Northwest Naturalist.” For a different vantage point, birders can take an all-day birding journey on the Three Capes Scenic Tour, a 60-mile round trip that features stops along views of the Pacific Ocean, Netarts Bay, Cape Loookout, Cape Meares Forest, and Tillamook pastures

hen the sun sets, it’ll be time to tuck away the binoculars for the day, but the fun will roll on at this year’s Birding & Blues Festival as two award-winning blues bands will keep the party going into the night! Taking the stage on Friday, April 12, starting at 8 p.m., will be Norman Sylvester, a staple on the Portland blues scene since 1985. Born in Bonita, Lous., “The Boogie Cat” was inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame in Oct. 2011. His most recent release, “Blue Stains on my Hands,” released in 2011, is an all-original tribute to the pioneers of blues who traveled the “Chitlin’ Circuit,” keeping the blues — and its history — alive. Influenced from his Southern Baptist early years and the gospel quartet his father, Macy Sylvester, toured with, Sylvester has shared the stage with the likes of BB King, Buddy Guy, James Cotton, Junior Wells, Otis Clay, Peter Frampton and more. And as a “family and community first” musician, he has mentored many young talents in the area including Patrick Lamb, Gretchen Mitchell, Jolie Clausen, Joseph Konty, Alden Harris and Gunnar Roads. He also teaches through grants “A History of American Music” in local schools. Blues fans looking for an encore will get just that the following night when the Duffy Bishop Band tops off Saturday activities with their energetic and interactive show, also starting at 8 p.m.

“We play blues, but with a lot of elements,” says Bishop. “Because we love all kinds of music, we pour elements from country and rock, show tunes and folk, but it’s all blues based.” After playing 40 years, first as part of the San Francisco Bay Areas’s musical explosion that gave the world the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin and later in Seattle’s burgeoning music scene, Bishop is excited to take her infectious sound to Pacific City’s annual pilgrimage for birders. “It sounds like a great combination,” she says. “I’m crazy for birds, and I love the ocean. It sounds like an exciting time.” Comprised of Bishop on vocals, husband Chris Carlson on guitar, Dean Mueller on bass and Brad Ulrich on saxophone, The Grammy-nominated O and The Beaten T Duffy Bishop Band, which has called Portland ff r 4 m iles north of ack its vibrant blues scene home since 1994, has reaped P alk miles of q acific City countless awards including Washington BluesWSociety u and Cascade Blues Association Hall of FameSdesignaecluded, woo iet, sandy beach. d e d location tions.

David Roth returns to Pacific City for 10th annual spring concert


rom the holistic to the hilarious, the poignant to the improbable, an evening with folk artist David Roth is anything but mundane. Roth, who will return to Grateful Bread Restaurant & Bakery on Tuesday, April 9 for his 10th annual Pacific City spring performance, has seen his music fly in the space shuttle, and ring out in Carnegie Hall. Still, “The Home of the Dory Fleet” holds a special place in his heart. Concert time is 7:30 p.m. “It’s nice to come back (to the Grateful Bread),” he told the Sun. “It feels almost like a homecoming for me.” More than a concert, each David Roth performance is a new experience. He’s been known to make up a song on the spot based on current events. A spirit of fun is the one constant. “It’s a little bit like James Taylor meets Jerry Seinfeld with a little bit of Will Rogers thrown in,” he says about his live shows. With 12 CDs and two songbooks to his credit, the singer, songwriter, recording artist, keynote speaker, workshop leader and instructor has taken his music to a wide variety of venues in the U.S. and abroad for 26 years.

Jazz Duo Shares Their Spirit Jazz band “Two Spirit Jazz” will play two concerts at the Delicate Palate, 35280 Brooten Road in Pacific City on April 12 and 13. Both musical events start at 6:30 p.m. The group features musicians Suzanne Callaway on vocals and guitar and Theresa Riccardi on drums. The duo says Two Spirit Jazz was created as music for healing, given as entertainment and flavored sweet for the soul. They say they understand how lucky they are to play jazz and that they aspire to “bring folks along.” The duo, which also performs in a full quartet in Hillsboro and Portland, Ore., say that “Two Spirit” is a Native American term they use to remind us of the power in accepting ours and others uniqueness, and the contributions to society made therein. They also use the term “Two Spirit” as a basic “shout out” to lift and shift awareness toward the deeply healing culture of the Native Americans.

A Story to Tell Stradivari Quartet returns to Camp Winema for April 14 Neskowin Chamber Music Series concert

Come As You Are!


Sunday Adult Classes 9 a.m Sunday School: 10 a.m. Sunday Worship Services: 10-11 a.m. Fellowship follows.

he musical story-telling style of the Stradivari Quartet is based on the belief that everyone and everything has a story to tell. Featuring members from Switzerland, Korea, and China, the ensemble returns to Neskowin for the second time on Sunday, April 14 at 3 p.m. for a Neskowin Chamber Music Series conert at the Chapel at Camp Winema. Members of the quartet think that all the anecdotes about composers, works, instruments, and players are brought into one connected whole. The varied backgrounds of the performers help create a special bridge to the audience. They all play Stradivaris instruments. Xiaomong Wang, violin, started playing at the age of four. While still in school, he continued his musical development at the Central Conservatory in Beijing where he studied for 10 years. He has been the concertmaster of the UBS Verbier Orchestra and the UBS Chamber Orchestra and, in 2008, became the second concertmaster of the Zurich Opera Orchestra. Soyoung Yoon, violin, had her first violin lesson at the age of five. She studied in Seoul before transferring to master classes in Zurich and Cologne. Yoon has won prizes at the Queen Elizabeth Competition, Tchaikovsky Competition, and Yehudi Menuhin Competition, among others. “For me, music is the most natural thing in the world,” she says. “I have always loved playing the violin.” Lech Antonio Uszynski, viola, was born to a family of Polish musicians. He

grew up in Switzerland and began learning violin from his father at the age of six. The winner of prizes for both violin and viola at the Swiss Youth Music Competition, he has been playing the viola since he was 13. In 2001, he founded the Trio Elegiaque with his brother and they went on to win the prestigious Gaetano Zimetti International Chamber Music Competition. Maja Weber, cello, began playing the cello at the age of four, when the instrument was bigger than she was. She played in a family quartet and in the Ars Amata Zurich and later formed the Amas Quartet with her sister, winning a number of prizes. She is the also the creator of the Stradivari Quartet. “The unique image of the instruments made by Antonio Giacomo Stradivari (1644-1737) has always been reflected in the expressive power of the playing,” says the quartet on its website. “Quality and myth have made Stradivari one of the best known cult—and cultural—brands in the world.” An Outreach program by the quartet will be presented at Oceanlake School in Lincoln City on April 15 at 9 a.m. Season tickets for Neskowin Chamber Music are $110. Single tickets are available, payable in advance and on a limited basis, for each concert for $25. Call 503-965-6499 to order. Individual tickets are available at the door for $25. For more information, visit www. neskowinchambermusic.or or call 503965-6499. Camp Winema is located three miles north of Neskowin just off Highway 101.

Feting Their Namesake Cloverdayle brings their country sounds to Grateful Bread on April 20 By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun


hey’ve shared the stage with the likes of Kenny Chesney and Lady Antebellum, have recorded tracks alongside Jason Aldean in Nashville and are now promoting their debut CD “9 Miles Down a 10 Mile Road.” Married country artists Chad and Rachel Hamar, who together make up the up-and-coming band Cloverdayle, will return to the site of much of their musical inspiration when they perform their energetic and eclectic brand of country music during a concert at Grateful Bread Restaurant & Bakery, Saturday, April 20, starting at 6 p.m. Appetizers will be provided and beer and wine available for purchase. Admission is $10. The Hamars say that the area is near and dear to their hearts having leveraged a family beach home as a writing retreat over the years. They say about half the material on “9 Miles” was crafted in the private setting along Pacific City’s beach. With no cell phone reception, and very little TV, they say the beach house is the perfect place to get disconnected from the world and its distractions and get reconnected with music in an intimate way. “You have more time to think and

get creative,” says Rachel. “Pacific City is one of the most beautiful beaches in the Northwest,” adds Chad. “We love it as a getaway.” For the imprints of the area on their new album, you only have to look as far as the first single. The duo recalls the writing of “Like We Were Kids Again,” which was penned while the couple were sitting on the beach house’s deck with a group of friends, sipping margaritas and reminiscing about times of their youth. Even their name pays tribute to their ties to the area. Recalling the names impetus in 2008, the Hamars say it was while driving along Highway 101, when they noticed the sign welcoming them to Cloverdale. It was then that they realized it was a name that worked perfectly for their growing musical partnership. They later changed the spelling by adding a “Y” after discovering the name was also used by a college in California. The couple first met while attending community college some 15 years ago where both were performing in a vocal jazz band. They got their first big break in 2008 when Kenny Chesney was running a competition, the winner of which earned the right to open for the popular artist at Clark County Amphitheatre (now Sleep Country Amphitheatre).

CLOVERDAYLE will showcase their original country music sounds at the Grateful Bread Restaurant & Bakery on Saturday, April 20. The duo penned much of the music on their debut release at a family beach house in Pacific City. Their winning performance marked the first time the duo performed as Cloverdayle and the opening performance the second. Since that time, local radio play has opened numerous doors for their act — garnering openings for such popular acts as Lady Antebellum, Wynonna Judd and Jason Aldean, the latter of which grew into a collaboration. Aldean’s band sang on the aforementioned first

THIS HISTORICAL photo depicts what looks like a church group creating their own way to slide down the Cape’s famed dune.

Sliding for Home By SALLY RISSEL for the Sun


he sand dune at Cape Kiwanda is 500 feet high, the height of a six-story building. It is at the beginning of the sandstone headland reaching out into the Pacific Ocean. Many geologists think the basalt Haystack Rock was part of the Cape before sandstone was worn away by millions of years of pounding waves. Cape Kiwanda was once called Sand Cape as indicated in early postcards. The dune is one of the highlights of Cape Kiwanda, climbed by thousands of people of all ages each year. As soon as children hit the beach, they head to the dune. It is quite a workout for your leg muscles and gets your heart pumping, too. There are steep cliffs at the top and signs cautioning people to stay away from the edges. Most people just want to enjoy the view, appreciate the accomplishment of making it to the top and the thrill of running back down. Children seem to be able to do it over and over again while many adults are happy with a one- time climb. The back part of the Cape, often called the bowl, is more sheltered from the wind and was once the summer camping ground to Nestucca Indians who used the tide pools to gather mussels and fish from lower cliffs. They even took their canoes out to Haystack Rock to gather bird eggs. Some local residents have found arrow heads in the constantly shifting sands. In the 50s and 60s, dune buggies were a popular vehicle to use on the beach. They were often a converted Model A or hand-crafted machines made by local mechanics. Riding them in the bowl and trying to get to the top of the sand dune was great sport. There are sand boards (available at Cape Kiwanda

Spring into Action By PAT GEFRE for the Sun


ell, April 1st has come and gone, nothing exceptional happened unless of course you consider the April Fools spoof, printed in the Oregon Coast Today, that someone was moving Pacific City’s Haystack Rock. I understand that several folks were complaining about the move. To me, the scarier thought is that many of those same folks that believed the rock was headed north are voters! April 1st marked the opening of spring chinook season on the Nestucca River and Three Rivers. It is way too early, but that doesn’t seem to stop some of the folks that are hoping to catch that first springer of the year. The earliest that I have seen a springer was April 14. Good numbers don’t start to occur until mid-May. Summer steelhead will begin to show almost simultaneously with the spring chinook — that can make for an interesting day of fishing when you have a shot at catching either. There will be some focus on springer’s in tidewater with fishermen hoping to hook up with some early salmon. In general, if we don’t have much rain, tidewater fishing for salmon will offer the best opportunities for the next couple of weeks. If we get a lot of rain, those salmon will move right through tidewater to the river and odds will be better out of tidewater and in the river. We just have to wait and see what the weather brings. Note of interest — spring chinook season has always brought out the usual crowd of criminals. Those that fish illegally should take note. Last year, we were not allowed the expected extended season for springers in Three Rivers, even though there were plenty of salmon. Extending the season is the Oregon State Police’s call. Last year they felt the problems were many and the added cost of policing an extended season just wasn’t in the cards. With only a handful of officers and several rivers to patrol, illegal fishing was rampant. This

year with some rule changes (bobber fishing only on the Trask River), I’m told that it will free up more time for officers to give more attention to Three Rivers. I’m told there will be some tight focus here in an attempt to eliminate some of the crowd that has created the problem, so beware, think twice, that guy you might be fishing next to just might be an undercover game officer. Winter steelhead are not done. Although we had a less than hoped for winter run, it would seem that the last couple of weeks have improved dramatically. The Cedar Creek hatchery, over the last couple of weeks, has topped off all the steelhead they need for this year’s crop of broodstock steelhead. With spring chinook fishing open on the Columbia and Willamette Rivers much of the fishing pressure for winter steelhead on the north streams has disappeared. With the increased numbers of late steelhead and very light fishing pressure, the odds for catching winters here have drastically improved. We are only seeing six to eight boats a day lately. With those numbers, it’s likely that you might not see another fisherman while you fish. Clamming has been spectacular so far in this early season. April will offer 14 days with minus tides. That’s almost a half month worth of clamming tides. Clamming is usually very good any time the coast has minus low tides. So far this season, it looks like Mother Nature had a terrific clam spawn last year and folks have been very successful all over the Oregon Coast. It’s official: Nestucca Angler’s will host the annual fin-clipping party at Rhodes Pond Saturday, June 15. It’s great fun and a terrific way to meet the fishing community and to give something back for the fishing opportunity Rhodes Pond has created. There will be auction items, drawing, and a great BBQ. This year’s treat will be the viewing of the new and improved raising facility. You just have to come see what a great job Nestucca Angler’s has done with the pond.

eskowin Valley School is inviting first- through eighth-grade home-school and publicschool students on a four-day week to join NVS students on Fridays from May 3-24 for a special Friday School elective program. Friday School students join NVS students for a full day of school from 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. for a series of what the school is promoting as a fun, projectbased program with electives in science, drama, music, writing, art and history. This is the fifth year for the Friday School program. NVS began offering Friday School in response to Nestucca School District’s move to a four-day school week. “We wanted to offer our community a resource for families whose children were displaced on those Fridays,” said Julie Fiedler, NVS’s head of school. “We made NVS accessible for a month of Fridays with an elective format that could benefit both our students and those joining us. It has been a wonderful experience to meet new children in our community and share how we teach at NVS, using hands-on experiential learning. “We are very happy about the news of a five-day school week for the Nestucca District next year. While this is likely our last Friday School as we know it, NVS will continue to offer our Summer Day Camps and find new ways to bring educational programming to our community.” Registration for the sessions is $100 for all four Fridays; space is limited. To register, contact the school at 503- 3923124 or www.neskowinvalleyschool. com. Students can select from classes

on topics such as “Monoprints and More,” where they will work with paint and glass plates to create prints and learn new ways to use collage, paint, and found objects. In “Cartooning,” students will create a character, learn to draw expressions, develop a plot and create story panels that take their characters on a visual adventure. And the school’s “EnCHANTING Fairy Tales,” class offers students a chance to take their favorite fairy tales, chant the plots, and create hilarious, physical, dramatic retellings of famous stories and present them to an audience. There are also two cooking classes offered by NVS parent and alumni Arica Venti, “Vigorous Veggies” and “That’s Italian!” in which students will cook lunch for everyone at Friday School. Adding mystery and hands-on science to the lineup of electives is “Mystery Powders,” where students act as scientific detectives to identify unknown substances. Older students in grades 6-8 will be able to elect to take “Streets of China,” where they will create their own Chinese market, become familiar with the currency, and learn to bargain for food and other goods in Mandarin. For a complete list of Friday School classes, visit Neskowin Valley School is a preschool-8th grade independent school founded in South Tillamook County in 1972. The school provides education in small class groupings to children from diverse backgrounds. Its purpose is to inspire joyful learning, and to work together with families and friends to model intellectual curiosity, ethical conduct, and responsibility for each other and the natural world.

Fresh Catch PORTLAND RESIDENT RICK WILSON and sons Luc Henry de Tessan, 8, and Ben Henry de Tessan, 6, returned from a March 30 fishing trip aboard Mark Lytle’s 22-foot charter dory with this nice catch of ling cod. Lytle, who has owned and operated Pacific City Fishing since 2000 reports the fish ranged in size from 15 to 22 pounds. “What a perfect day on the coast — it really doesn’t get any better than fishing with Mark on a sunny spring day on his dory,” Wilson told the Sun. Trips aboard Pacific City Fishing’s charter last up to six hours or when limits are achieved and focus on several different species of bottom fish, as well as ling cod, dungeness crab and salmon.
