On Our Cover:


he U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced the adoption of Final Comprehensive Conservation Plans for Nestucca Bay, Bandon Marsh, and Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuges on May 13. The plans provide goals, objectives, and strategies for management of the three Refuges over the next 15 years. According to USFWS, final CCPs emphasize expanded habitat management, restoration and monitoring along with increased public use opportunities. The CCPs were developed to provide what USFWS describes as reasonable, scientifically-grounded guidance for improving the refuges’ wetlands, grasslands, riparian and upland forests and other habitats for the long-term conservation of migratory birds, anadromous fish, and native plants and animals. At Nestucca Bay, the plan includes plans for increased public use opportunities. Amongst these planned improvements are a short “discovery trail” and observation deck in the lower parking lot of Cannery Hill, a seasonal trail that will follow the current power line rightof-way at Cannery Hill, a trail from the lower parking lot to the Pacific View Trail (visitors currently must either drive to the upper parking lot where the Pacific View Trail begins or walk that same road), a short trail along the old roadbed in the Little Nestucca Restoration Area as well as a welcoming kiosk and interpretive panel, improved parking area along Brooten Road for walk-in access, an upgraded and more accessible bridge on the tsunami evacuation trail at Neskowin

Marsh, and the building of a small gravel parking lot plus pedestrian trail improvement along the dike on the little Nestucca Restoration Area. The 15-year plan also calls for numerous habitat management and restoration projects including the restoration of native coastal prairie, using appropriate forest management techniques to thin Sitka spruce-western hemlock forest where needed, and the installation and maintenance of woody debris in stream channels to enhance salmonid habitat. USFWS is also planning on replacing the current residence at Nestucca Bay with a bunkhouse and office for the refuge manager. Though none of these projects has, of as yet, secured a funding source, Oregon Coast NWR Complex project leader Roy Lowe told the Sun that he is hopeful that will be resolved sooner if not later. He added that the trail to Cannery Hill, the powerline trail to the bay and the Little Nestucca improvement project are at the top of the list. “We’ve been pretty good about locating funds,” he told the Sun. “I have great hope that we’ll pick up these projects and be able to develop.” The one project that Lowe hopes to see the light of day in the short term is waterfowl hunting on USFWS’s Brooten Marsh unit. Located at the tip of where the Little Nestucca enters the bay, the site was formerly hunted when it was held by private owners. Lowe said he hopes to have that area open to waterfowl hunting by Fall 2014. “These plans represent years of ef-

fort among the Service, state and other federal agencies, local communities and other stakeholders,” Lowe said. “They build off of established partnerships working to conserve the exceptional natural resources along the Oregon coast.” Government agencies, conservation organizations, private citizens, local landowners and other stakeholders provided input for each CCP. USFWS evaluated written comments and public input on the draft plans in the fall of 2012 and revised the plans to include the new information received. “(USFWS) is committed to the conservation of wildlife and their habitat and these plans provide the best balance in sustaining or improving the biological integrity, diversity and environmental health of the refuges,” Lowe said in a statement. “It also provides the best possible balance of expanding popular recreational opportunities while limiting impacts to wildlife and their habitat.” Copies of the CCPs are available in the references section of the Public Libraries in Bandon, Coquille, Newport, Lincoln City, Pacific City, and Tillamook. Printed or CD-ROM copies can be requested from the Refuge Office at 541867-4550. The CCPs may be downloaded online at ccp_nes_slz_bdm.htm. For more information, contact the refuge office at 541-867-4550, write to Oregon Coast National Wildlife Refuge Complex, 2127 SE Marine Science Drive, Newport, OR 97365; or e-mail

THIS beached gray whale was first reported on May 10 to the Marine Mammal Stranding Network on Friday, May 10. A contractor employed by Oregon State Parks & Recreation buried the whale, which was believed to be the victim of an orca attack, on May 13.

Whale, That’s the End

By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun


25-foot beached gray whale between Tierra Del Mar and Sand Lake attracted numerous onlookers between when it was first reported on Friday, May 10 and when it was buried in the sand by Oregon State Parks on Monday, May 13. Jim Rice, faculty research assistant for the Marine Mammal Stranding Network at Hatfield Marine Science Center, told the Sun the young whale had numerous rake marks left from the teeth of orcas. “There were also areas where it was hit on the tip of its flippers and on its tail, which led me to believed it was killed by an attack of killer whales and most likely drowned before it came to shore,” he said. Rice added that calves such as this gray whale are more vulnerable to these kinds of orca attacks. He estimated the age of the whale at “just a few months old.” Amongst those marveling at the deceased mammal over the weekend were Sand Point, Idaho residents Shelly and Mark Blankenship, who were vacationing in Tierra Del Mar. “It was amazing, gruesome and just unbelievable,” Shelly told the Sun. “It

was in really good condition so it had to be a fresh kill. The blood was still bright and vibrant. (It) had huge and deep claw marks, one of them deep into its blubber.” She and her husband also reported numerous scavengers looking for a meal — including at least two coyotes, a

fated whale. About six whales are found on Oregon beaches every years. “You don’t know what pathogens are on the carcass that might be transmittable to people,” he said. “It’s also illegal to take part of the whale without permission.” Tillamook Oregon State Parks

VISITORS from Sandpoint, Idaho Mark and Shelly Blankenship came across this beached gray whale during their walk from a Tierra Del Mar cabin to the mouth of the Sand Lake Estuary on May 12. The Blankenships also witnessed numerous scavengers including coyotes, a pair of golden eagles and a turkey vulture eyeing the carcass. pair of bald eagles and a turkey vulture. They noted that the animals had only targeted pieces of the whale that were scattered along the beach some distance from the carcass. Rice cautioned that beachgoers should avoid contact anytime they come across dead mammal like this

manager Pete Marvin said they typically bury washed up animals if they are beached in a populated area. And while this carcass was closer to Sand Lake than Tierra Del Mar, state parks elected to have it buried because of its size. “If it would have been a sea lion or a seal, we would have left it,” he said.

What’s in a Name? Committee to recommend Pacific CityWoods CPAC be renamed to reflect Tillamook County’s adoption of CACs By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun


oard members of the organization that lived its former life as the Pacific City-Woods Community Planning Advisory Committee met on May 13 to discuss necessary revisions to its bylaws now that the county has ordered the creation of Citizen Advisory Committees in each of the areas formerly served by CPACs. The board drafted a number of bylaw revisions that they will be recommending at the group’s next meeting on Monday, May 20, 6:30 p.m., at the Kiawanda Community Center, 34600 Cape Kiwanda Drive, Pacific City. Amongst the changes they will be forwarding to the general membership is a name change to Pacific City-Woods Citizens Advisory Committee. Other changes include additions and revisions that include a change in the organization’s purpose. In an effort to address all the ways the group can now function, it would like to reference the county’s May 1 board order. This is because though CPACs could only comment on landuse related issues, the county commissioners, at the request of CPAC chairs, designed the new community input organizations to be much more far reaching. The groups will now be allowed to make recommendations to both the Board of Commissioners and other public entities on community issues unconnected to planning and zoning matters — provided they make note of whether or not such an opinion does or does not have the support of commissioners. There was also some discussion as to whether the group should redraw their geographical bound-

ary. Though there was some talk of adding Tierra del Mar, in the end the consensus was that while there may be a time when expanding the boundary will be a possibility, it was first important to get comfortable with their new expanded roles. “We’ve got a lot of issues in front of us,” said group member Anne Price. “If Tierra Del Mar comes to us (with a request to join up with our group), we can pass it through the normal channels. It is possible to change, but I don’t believe at this point in time we want to add (language allowing expanded borders) to our bylaws. If we start changing our bylaws to accommodate everything that might happen, the document will become dilute.” Under the board order adopted May 1 by the commissioners, communities not currently served by a CAC may petition the board for the creation of a new CAC. Though no mention was made of those same areas seeking to be folded into a current group, it was one of the key issues that was discussed between CPAC chairs and county commissioners prior to the adoption of the order. “It was kind of implied (that we would consider allowing other areas to join in),” said David Yamamoto, past chair of the CPAC. Another change the executive board is going to be recommending to general membership is to say that meetings will be posted to the organization’s web site instead of the county’s site. That website’s name will to be changed, but Gloria Scullin, who oversaw the creation of the website at its inception, said that could take some time.

NESKOWIN FARMERS’ MARKET will open Saturday, May 25 for the season. Open from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at Neskowin Beach Wayside, the market will feature fresh produce, baked goods, fresh fish and art.

Head to the Market Neskowin Farmers’ Market opens May 25 with an expected 14 vendors

By TIM HIRSCH for the Sun


f you’ve got a taste for produce fresh from the farm but not the desire to travel to the fields, Neskowin Farmers Market has got you covered. For the second straight year, Nancy Hadley is organizing a summer-long farmers market on Saturdays in Neskowin. This time around the event will take roots at the Neskowin Beach Wayside — just a few steps from last year’s location adjacent the Neskowin Marketplace. The first market will be held during Memorial Day weekend on Saturday, May 25. The market will be open 9 a.m.-1 p.m. until Labor Day — and longer if the season permits. “Our focus is fresh produce,” says Hadley. “We also will have fresh dorycaught fish, which was a huge draw last year.” She says one of the hallmarks of the market will be its variety — each Saturday the market will be filled with

everything from fresh vegetables to fruit and berries, from baked goods to homemade granola. Add in pastureraised meat in the form of chicken, turkey, lamb and beef and you have just about everything from a farm you can imagine — all from South Tillamook County vendors. And if you’ve got a taste for a little art, that hunger will be satisfied as well as photography, handmade felted and knit items and other art mediums will also be on the menu. “We have true locally grown produce,” says Hadley. “We just really want to support the agricultural community. The fresh-caught fish are huge as are the baked goods.” Still, she says the people — whether vendors or bargain hunters — are what make the market so vibrant. “The community support is absolutely phenomenal, and my vendors are just a happy little family,” she says. “They’re a real cohesive group. I see nothing but growth in the future.”

Spring Chinook make their first significant appearance in Nestucca River, Three Rivers By PAT GEFRE for the Sun


he wait is over! Over the last week and a half Spring Chinook have started to show in the Nestucca River and Three Rivers. Most have been caught from Farmer Creek to Cloverdale with more salmon coming from below Three Rivers than above. Fishing at the mouth of Three Rivers has produced one to four fish almost every morning as of late. There have also been a few salmon caught in the Jackson Drift above the mouth of Three Rivers and one fellow brought in a nice 16 pounder said to have been caught at Farmer Creek. A handful of salmon are being caught in Three Rivers where the river temperature is now at 50 degrees. There would be more fish in Three Rivers, but very low river levels I suspect, are keeping springer’s in the main Nestucca River. One or two more degrees of temperature rise in Three Rivers and even the low river level won’t keep the springer’s out. I spoke with Joe Hulbert from Cedar Creek hatchery the morning of May 16, and he said there were at least a half dozen springer’s in the pool below the trap, and that means at the very least some salmon are moving through Three Rivers. Once Three Rivers hits 51-52 degrees, salmon will start to pour in. Spinner’s and eggs or sand shrimp have been the baits of choice for this fishery. Eggs and shrimp can be drift fished, back bounced, or bobber fished. Bait seems to produce more actual bites than do terminal tackle such as Corkies and yarn or Spin-N-Goes. Three Rivers is under special hook and leader restrictions. Because of past problems with snagging and flossing, hook size has been reduced and can be no bigger than a 3/8-inch gap from point to shank. This equals a size no. 2 or smaller hook. The hope is that smaller hook sizes will prevent snagging. Leader length can be no longer than 36 inches. These regulations will be in effect until the close of the season on Three Rivers

(July 1st). The main Nestucca River has no hook or leader restrictions other than the normal regulations printed in the game rules. I have been asked several times this season if a barbless hook requirement is in effect. The answer is no, not on the Nestucca or Three Rivers. One other rule that seems to be confusing folks is that although you may fish for trout in the lakes, all north coast streams are closed to trout angling until May 25. While there is a five-fish limit in the lakes, there is a two-fish limit for cut-throat trout in all north coast streams. I’m not sure why that is confusing — my guess is folks are just not reading the regulations before they go fishing. I had a call from the river yesterday from a fisherman who wanted to know if springer’s had to be fin-clipped. He had one at the boat that was wild and didn’t know the rules. There’s no good reason for putting a line in the water before you know what’s legal. Something odd this season, we have not yet seen a Summer Steelhead. Usually we see a few summer’s before we see any springer’s. I’m hoping they didn’t encounter the same issues that put a damper on Winter Steelhead this year. Many fishermen look forward to Summer Steelhead on the Nestucca, some are not even interested in salmon — they just love the summers. Don’t forget to mark June 15 on your calendars. That is the Saturday for finclipping fall Chinook at Rhodes Pond, starting at 9 a.m. It’s located on Highway 22 just about 5.5 miles east of Hebo. With the newly remodeled pond, there should be a full compliment of 100,000 fish to clip. The more the merrier and the sooner it will get done. Then it’s on to the fun, BBQ, raffles auctions, etc! This is a great time to get out and meet lots of different folks involved with many aspects of fishing. There will be ODFW staff, members of Nestucca Anglers, fishing guides, fishermen, and many others associated with fisheries. It’s a great endeavor with many rewards both for fishermen and the community at large.

home-school students joined those from NVS in the classes, which included drama, cooking lunch for the entire school and NVS-style baseball at the end of the day. This will be the last Friday School for NVS as the Nestucca School District goes back to a five-day week in the fall. The school is planning outreach to home-school students for 2013-14 and hopes homeschoolers will come to the open house. “We plan to structure our afternoon curriculum so a small number of home-school students will be able to join some of our regular arts programming,” said Fiedler. “We encourage home-schooling parents to learn more about NVS.” The school is accepting enrollment for students ages 3-Grade 8 for Fall 2013-14 and for its Summer Day Camps in July.

THE TILLAMOOK COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY placed a historical sign on the Beal’s Building in downtown Tillamook on May 18, preceding their regular meeting. The sign gives a brief history of the building and original owner, Arthur Generous Beals, who was a prominent businessman in Tillamook. The current owner, Marilyn Saito, asked good friend Gretchen Jacobs, to represent her at the placing of the sign. The TCHS has many signs on historical buildings in Tillamook such as the Odd Fellows Building, Thayer Bank Building. Tillamook Masonic Building, Alderman Building and others. Take a walk around town and learn some of Tillamook’s early history.

Your County 2013 Road Bond Measure

Why a Portland bioterrorism attack would affect Tillamook County PACE Setter, the Portland Area Capabilities Exercise, will run May 21-23, 2013 and will involve people from more than 65 jurisdictions who will react and respond to a simulated bioterrorism attack. With role play in more than 50 venues around the region, this is the largest exercise in the Portland urban area since 2007’s Top Officials exercise TOPOFF4. Tillamook’s participation will take place on Wednesday, May 22. The purpose of the exercise is to test the region’s ability to respond to a complex public health incident affecting multiple agencies across several political boundaries, including Tillamook County. The exercise will address policy, plans, and operations related to bioterrorism incident mobilization and response. So why is Tillamook involved, and what will they be exercising? In an incident such as this, it is expected that many people will flee the area and evacuate to coastal communities, much like the coast did during the March 2011 Japan Tsunami threat, only in reverse. An influx of tens of thousands of people would test public health officials, clinics, law enforcement, and other first responder personnel, responding to a public health incident. In Tillamook, local public health officials plan to activate an incident com-

mand to assist the health department staff in responding to the incident. It will test the processes and communications needed to respond to the incident, and practice ordering necessary supplies and medication to address the potential health emergency. Health department staff will create information briefs and practice dissemination of this information to local health care providers and the public regarding the recommended actions following such an event. Potentially, other medical providers within the county will be asked to assist in responding. Public health will also request the activation of the North County Emergency Volunteer Corp and the Nehalem Medical Reserve Corp. In such an event, the health department would need additional personnel to assist in distributing medication to those affected by an event such as an anthrax exposure. Every year, the Tillamook County Public Health Emergency Preparedness program is required to design and participate in at least two exercises to test their ability to respond to a public health crisis. According to the county, this exercise is the perfect chance for emergency management and public health to jointly test their resources and response plans and move beyond the county borders, which is a realistic situation.

$15 million in bonds Funds to be used for safety repairs to main arterials and roads serving our farm-to-market needs. Tax rate estimated to be $0.39 per $1,000 of assessed property value Annual estimated taxes would total just $39 per $100,000 of assessed value Bonds will be sold in two equal $7.5 million increments 5 years apart Five-year repayment term on each bond sale The bond assessment would be offset by $0.34 in 2016, due to the retirement of the County Jail and Tillamook County General Hospital bonds. Road work supported by the bonds would help create jobs.

A creative solution that is widely supported throughout Tillamook County. I strongly encourage property owners to vote for this bond because so many options have been reviewed and there just isn’t anything else that is viable. This is the only way this county is going to raise enough money to do the road work we need. We have to take responsibility for where we live and this is a good way to do that and show that we do care about Tillamook County. We have a strong commercial trade and a very strong tourist trade that rely on our roads.

THIS PICTURE of Pacific City in the 1940s was taken before any of the west side of the bridge was developed. The dune grass began being planted in the late 40’s which started to stabalize the dunes and people began thinking that it would be safe to build houses on the ocean side of the Nestucca. Kiwanda Shores was one of the first developments and cabins were also built along the river south of the bridge on Sunset Avenue. It is hard to fathom, 60-70 years later, just how many homes now occupy this sand dune, which is stabilized with shore pines, scotch broom and dune grass. –Sally Rissel

From the Old to the New Winema Bible Camp’s Christian Heritage Conference offers look into prophesies of Old Testament during Memorial Day weekend


ometimes you have to study the old to understand the new. It is with in that in mind that the Christian Heritage Conference, scheduled for May 24-27 at Camp Winema, will delve into old testament prophecies that promised the coming of the Messiah. “The Scriptures Speak of Me...” will feature Charles McCoy, Bible professor at Boise College. Program director Frank Musgrave told the Sun that during the three-day conference and retreat, attendees will learn how prophecies were spoken in the Old Testament of the Bible and how these were manifested when Jesus came into the world as told in the New Testament. “We have a tendency to ignore the Old Testament sometimes except for select passages, but there are lots of places that Jesus was spoken of in prophecy,” he said. “We thought it would be interesting and enlightening and beneficial to look at how prophecy was spoken in the Old Testament and how it got worked out in Jesus.” The Memorial Day weekend retreat will offer sessions and activities for all ages and plenty of time for play, too. Afternoons have been left open so attendees can explore the camp’s recreational opportunities, take a walk on the beach or visit the many amenities in nearby Pacific City. “Winema offers a lot of different things,” Musgrave said. “There’s boating and swimming on the lake, and there’s miniature golf and the beach. (Campers) also like to head north to Pacific City or south to Lincoln City to do a little shopping.” Nursery care and children’s and youth program will be offered during the main sessions. “Anytime we can enlarge our scriptural knowledge, we’re doing ourselves and fellow believers a service,” Musgrave said. “As we can enlarge our minds and learn new things that have to do with (Jesus) and the kingdom, those are all beneficial.” Featured speaker Charles E. “Chuck” McCoy is a graduate of Western Michigan University (B.S. Secondary Education), Great Lakes Bible College (BRE), and Eastern New Mexico University (MA), with majors in Secondary Education, New Testament, and a Master’s Degree in Religion. Along with more than eight years of experience in ministry, he spent almost 20 years teaching at the college level. During that time, he wrote several textbooks and recorded a video series for Good News Productions in Joplin, Mo. He is currently writing a monthly column for the Restoration Herald Journal and has spoken several times at the

THE DELICATE PALATE BISTRO hosted a free prom dinner for Nestucca students on Saturday, May 11.

Dinner and a Dance By DEE MOORE for the Sun


here are many firsts in a young person’s life that make high school memorable: first car, first date, first dance and first prom, to name just a few. A first prom is a special event that includes tuxes, gowns, flowers and fine dining. Nestucca freshman Raymond Cruz’s grandparents Geoff and Patt Williams wanted to make his first prom extra special by giving him and his date a fine dining experience. The Williams own the Delicate Palaté Bistro and they gave Raymond and his date a four course meal to start their evening off in style. Then they took their generosity one step further. They decided to offer all Nestucca prom attendees a complimentary dinner. But the Williams had an agenda — they were hoping to teach these youngsters how to “make” a date; how to make reservations, how to behave in a fine dining establishment, how to order, how to tip a waiter and how to treat the young men and women they were dining with. The prom dinner was served between 4-6 p.m. and photo opportunities were available in the bistro’s garden after the meal. A small tip was accepted and was used for gas for the parents who were serving as volunteer shuttle drivers taking the students to the prom at the community center.

A great ride, but Nestucca bows out By DEE MOORE for the Sun


t was an exciting season for the Nestucca Bobcats baseball team which took them all the way to the district playoffs but now that wild ride has come to an end. The ‘Cats lost to the Gaston Greyhounds 1 to 12 in five innings Thursday, May 16. It was a day plagued by rain. The game was originally scheduled to be played in Chuck Bafaro Stadium at Bond Field at Pacific University in Forest Grove but inclement weather forced both teams to head over to Gaston to the Greyhounds’ field. Mother Nature would not leave well enough alone though, drizzling rain soon turned to downpours causing the game to be held for 15 minutes while the storm passed over. But these difficulties weren’t the cause of the ‘Cats loss, the Greyhounds simply out played Nestucca, according to head coach Clint Sisco. “Gaston right now, they’re hitting the ball,” Sisco said. The team was playing well and keeping up, the coach said. They were 3-1 in the third, but the ‘Cats lost their momentum going into the fourth. It was an eight run inning. Sisco is pleased with his team’s overall performance though. The ‘Cats finished up the season with an 8-16 record overall and an 8-10 mark in league play. “Our goal was to make it to district and as I told the team after the game, we did meet our goal,” Sisco said. Max Kirkendall, Joey Chatelain and Jake Menefee all hit 1-for-2 during the game. All three also made the All League Team. Kirkendall made the first team while Menefee and Chatelain made the second team. Austin Woods received an honorable mention.
