petition that aims to increase the safety in the waters off Cape Kiwanda, a petition which has not been sanctioned by the Pacific City Dorymen’s Association, is seeking to persuade the Oregon State Marine Board to establish a 300-yard area boatonly lane traffic lane. In the petition, which is dated March 15 and addressed to Rachel Bullene of the Oregon State Marine Board, petitioner Leonard Leis, of Sheridan, Ore, proposes abolishing surfing, kayaking, board paddling and similar activities in the proposed 300-yard stretch immediately south of Cape Kiwanda. The end of the 300-yard line would be indicated with a navigational light. In defense of prohibiting surfing and other activities from that area, Leis writes: “Surfing and similar activities are not dependent on the same features and conditions that are necessary for safe dory operation and are not restricted to a particular area. They can be enjoyed outside the area used by the dory boats for a distance of about three miles south (of the proposed exclusionary area) to the mouth of the Nestucca River.” Petition verbiage also claims that education efforts of the Dorymen’s Association and surfers have mostly fallen on deaf ears. In his petition, Leis had this to say: “Good faith efforts at education, signage, brochures, and voluntary compliance have had little tangible results on improving the situation.” He also asserts that surfing web sites “glorify” the surfing conditions without warning them of the hazardous conditions. The petition has drawn the attention of Dorymen’s Association co-chairs Paul Hanneman and Craig Wenrick, who say that the exclusionary idea of abolishing surfers and other water sports enthusiasts is contrary to their spirit of finding a solution that offers equal access to the popular waters off of Pacific City. “Our position has always been nonexclusive. We’ve never advocated for the exclusion of any user groups,” Wenrick told the Sun. “We feel we can solve any problem we have with education, communication and respect.” He also said that the Association’s education effort, which was embarked on with the cooperation of surfers following an accident involving surfer Cole Ortega and doryman Darrel Martin and has resulted in a $5.3 million law suit, has reaped dividends. Wenrick disputed the contention that the education efforts “have had little tangible results.”

On Our Cover:

A CURRENTLY CIRCULATING PETITION seeks to create a boat-only, 300-yard traffic lane just south of Cape Kiwanda. The petition asks that the Oregon State Marine Board forbid surfers, kayakers and similar activities in the area with the possible exception of surfing contests. The petition has not been endorsed by the Dorymen’s Association, whose co-chairs, Paul Hanneman and Craig Wenrick, say that the exclusionary idea is contrary to the current position of the association. “It’s definitely gotten a lot better (since our education effort),” he said. “it’s getting better, but you’re always going to have new people there. The repeat people are getting it (the safety concerns).” He added that any continued problem with surfers has more to do with those newcomers who have yet to be educated on the safety concerns in this multi-use area. In a Sun interview with both Hanneman and Wenrick, Hanneman agreed, saying that the Association’s position has been consistent — since its inception in 1996 the group has focused on public information, signage and law enforcement rather than the exclusion of any user group. And those efforts continue. As recently as the Association’s last meeting, held Jan. 18, the organization approved the recommendation of several additional safety measures, measures that included donating $1,000 to the Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District to defray costs of an increased presence at the Cape, more signage on the beach west of the access ramp, and a sign near the top of the ramp warning of soft sand — and offering a turnaround spot for motorists that realize taking the chance of getting stuck isn’t for them. Those proposals were forwarded to a number of government agencies in an April 8 letter. Though the problems with enacting

a policy of exclusion lies at the heart of the concerns of the Dorymen’s Association co-chairs, they also recognize the practical challenges of such a proposal. The problem, asks Hanneman, a former state legislator, is how do you enforce such a proposal? “I was around long enough (to realize that) it’s great to produce a law, but without enforcement and a provision for paying for that enforcement, you’re not going to (get) much from a law that you write,” he said. “Most people can see through (a posted law) and say ‘Who is enforcing this?’ The petition looks better on paper than it does in practicality.” Both Hanneman and Wenrick also said the petition ignores what they feel is the safety concern most likely to result in any future accident — inattentive beach goers. “I think the highest possibility of an accident will be on the beach. The petition doesn’t cover that,” said Hanneman. The Dorymen’s Association, however, has made an effort to educate those on the beach of the incoming boats. In their full-color safety brochure, the Association urges those on the beach to “Watch for boats returning from the ocean when trailers are parked on the beach.” For more information about the Pacific City Dorymen’s Association, visit

ODFW says 2014 ocean salmon seasons are full of promise The proposed 2014 ocean salmon seasons recently announced by the Pacific Fishery Management Council is being hailed by the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife as good news for both sport anglers and commercial troll salmon fishermen off the Oregon Coast. According to ODFW, recreational and commercial troll chinook salmon fishing this year looks to vary from good to great based on forecasted adult returns destined for key river basins of the Columbia River, the Central Valley in California, and the Klamath River. Although fishery managers are forecasting returns to the Central Valley and Klamath River of fall Chinook to be well below the 2013 totals, ODFW is reporting they should be abundant enough to result in good Chinook catches along the entire Oregon Coast.  Managers are forecasting that tremendous runs of Chinook will return to the Columbia River later this summer and this should provide for some great fishing both in the ocean and the Columbia River in August. ODFW says that thanks to much improved hatchery and naturally produced coho populations, the 2014 ocean coho seasons should provide the most time on the water for coho fishing since the 2010 season. Mark selective fishing for hatchery coho beginning in late June is expected to be very good along the

Oregon Coast, especially from Bandon up to the Columbia River. The Cape Falcon to Humbug Mt. non-selective coho season will open on Aug. 30 to coincide with Labor Day weekend. “We are expecting a very good coho season this year, and, if the stars line up just right off the Oregon Coast, Chinook fishing could be even better than last year, ” said Chris Kern, ODFW administrator for ocean salmon fisheries. “This should be a great year to be out on the ocean.” Sport anglers and commercial troll fishermen already have been fishing along the Oregon Coast south of Cape Falcon, and fishery managers have been hearing of good ocean Chinook catches from waters offshore from Newport to Bandon, according to Eric Schindler, ODFW ocean salmon project leader. “Our season is already off to a good start, and should only get better from this point on,” he said. The regulations adopted by the Pacific Fishery Management Council cover ocean waters from three to 200 miles from the state’s shore. In late April, the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission will be asked to consider concurrent regulations for Oregon’s territorial water that extend three miles from the shoreline. The regulations must also be approved by the National Marine Fishery Service and the Secretary of Commerce. Page 5 • Pacific City SUN • April 18, 2014


Delaying the Dispensaries Commissioners vote to enact moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries By SCOTT GILBERT for the Sun

illamook County commissioners unanimously imposed a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries April 16, at a meeting that featured fiery words by a moratorium opponent and unsuccessful attempts by Commissioner Tim Josi to either delay a decision or direct county staff to hurry their work to shorten the ban. The moratorium on dispensaries in unincorporated areas of the county could last until May 1, 2015, and stemmed from what Commissioners Bill Baertlein and Mark Labhart called the state Legislature’s decision to “punt” siting regulations to counties and cities. A law allowing dispensaries came out of the Legislature in 2013 and gave state health officials until this spring to draft rules before dispensaries could open, but controversy over the siting of the facilities led legislators this year to pass a law allowing local jurisdictions to impose moratoriums until May 2015. Tillamook resident Charles Ping testified in the public hearing that preceded the commissioners’ vote at the Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District administration building in Hebo, saying the state’s rules that prevent dispensaries from opening within 1,000 feet of a school and set other standards are sufficient. “I brought over a copy of the state regs,” Ping told the commissioners. “Anybody happen to look at them? I dropped by the office and asked the lady to hand them to each of you.” After a lengthy presentation that ranged over his personal experience, prescription drugs, the investment required to open a dispensary and other issues, Ping urged the commissioners not to enact a moratorium.

“I hope you guys don’t put your head in a hole like a lot of the other politicians are doing,” he said. “I hope you understand and actually think about it and vote your hearts, not your political bull----.” The only other member of the public to testify was James Becraft, a public health professional from the Oceanside area who supported a moratorium. “In many respects, the pharmacology of marijuana in some ways is still in its infancy,” he said. “Long-term public policy issues have not really been fully developed. So a year for the county to really take in planning for this very carefully is very appropriate.” Josi kicked off the commissioners’ deliberations by asking whether the vote could be delayed by “a week or two,” but with only one commissioners’ meeting remaining before the May 1 deadline for a moratorium, the idea fizzled. “I’m not in favor of passing this ordinance just for the sake of passing it at this time, to create a moratorium without really good reason,” Josi said. He said he wanted County Counsel Bill Sargent to provide the commissioners with more explanation about siting standards under state law. “If there’s sufficiency within the existing statutes, I don’t see a purpose for this moratorium, would be my view. But if there’s not, if there’s a good reason for passing this moratorium for up to a year, I’m willing to do that,” Josi said. “I’m not doing this for political purposes. I’m trying to be fair. … I’m interested in doing what’s right. So that’s where I am.” But later in the discussion, Sargent asked Josi: “What can I do for you?” “Bail me out of this tough spot,” Josi said. “Do you think sufficient standards are in place now?”

“No, I don’t,” Sargent said. “OK, good enough for me,” Josi replied. Labhart said he was “pretty upset with the Oregon Legislature because I believe that they punted a decision that should have been made at the state level. They punted to the counties and the cities to fight this battle.” “I think they shirked their responsibilities,” he said. “I believe this is a state issue on the siting of facilities.” Labhart cited the public’s mixed opinions on dispensaries, and said it would be easy for him to say, “Ah, let’s not do anything. The public’s not clear on this.” “But I think it’s too early for us to put in place standards, put in place restrictions on locations and siting, those kind of things,” he added. “And so I support putting in place a moratorium until the legislature can get this thing figured out.” As soon as Baertlein spoke enough to indicate that the moratorium would have a majority vote, Ping erupted. “You guys don’t even read the regulations, you don’t even know what the hell you’re talking about, and you’re voting against something, you’re sticking your head in the sand,” he said. After the interruption, Baertlein continued, “I think to develop this plan right and do it correctly, it’s gonna take some time to hash everything out. … I support the moratorium at this point.” Josi told his colleagues he’d support the moratorium if they would agree to have staff expedite the land-use issues at its center. However, that move also fizzled after Baertlein raised the cost of spending staff time to hurry the matter and joined Labhart in calling for further direction from the Legislature. The Legislature will next be in session in February 2015.

South County beaches not included on list of proposed beach monitoring sites


he Oregon Beach Monitoring Program is seeking public comments on its recently announced list of proposed sites to monitor from 2014-2016. Currently, there are no South Tillamook County beaches on the list that was recently re-evaluated by OBMP and the Department of Environmental Quality. OBMP works with DEQ to determine beaches that need monitoring based on several established criteria. The criteria include pollution hazards present, previous monitoring data and test results, type and amount of beach use and public input. As part of an adaptive sampling plan, beaches and sampling locations are re-evaluated every other year to ensure available resources best protect public health.

The last evaluation occurred in 2012. Beaches included on the list are: Seaside Beach, Cannon Beach, Tolvano State Park Beach, Short Sands Beach at Oswald State Park, Rockaway Beach, Twin Rocks Beach, D River State Park Beach, Agate Beach, Nye Beach, Seal Rock, Heceta Beach, Bastenorff Beach, Sunset Bay State Park Beach, Hubbard Creek Beach, Harris Beach State Park, and Mill Creek. The public can share comments on the proposed beach monitoring sites via email at or via phone at 971-673-0400. Comments must received by May 9. For more information, visit http://

Tillamook Co. Tsunami Ready and Storm Ready status renewed


ordon McCraw, Tillamook County’s director of Emergency Management was notified the week of April 14 that the county’s designation of Tsunami Ready and Storm Ready had been renewed. Tillamook County first achieved the designation in 2005 and has continued to meet all requirements since then. The elements are reviewed every four years by the National Weather Service Portland to ensure continued compliance. The NWS TsunamiReady and StormReady Programs are designed to help cities, towns, counties, universities and other large sites in coastal areas reduce the potential for disastrous tsunami or storm related consequences. Elements reviewed include communication and coordination, warning reception methods, local warning dissemination, community preparedness and administrative functions related to the above. In a letter from NOAAs Warning Coordination Meteorologist at National Weather Service Portland dated April 10, Tyree Wilde stated: “Tillamook County, Oregon Emergency Management, and Oregon’s Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) continue to do an outstanding job of promoting

Tsunami awareness throughout the county.” McCraw said the county was also awarded a TsunamiReady Certificate of Achievement in 2008, “For improving the timeliness and effectiveness of hazardous weather warnings for the public through a diligent and proactive approach of increasing communications and preparedness. Some of these communication methods include an alert system through Nixle. Citizens can register for free at and receive weather and other significant event alerts directly to a cellphone as a text message or to an email, or both. There is also a Facebook page that McCraw, who is a retired Navy Weather Forecaster, started to help keep the community informed of weather, road, and other important happenings, realtime. His Facebook page is Gordon’s Tillamook Weather Center. For Twitter users, he also has a twitter page @TillamookCoEm. In addition to these, he also sends out forecasts and other information on an email distribution list to thousands in Tillamook County. McCraw said in addition to these, having a NOAA Weather Radio is also important. “In an emergency, my hope is that at least one of these alert methods will work for everyone,” he said.

HOMETOWN HEROES! Nestucca speech contest students represented their school well during a district meet held at Nestucca Jr.-Sr. High School on April 5. Above, (l-r), are Nestucca students Andreas Polivka (district champion, Expository), Chelsea Wallace (finalist,Radio Commentary), Marie Krueger (third place, Prose), Nicole Bishop (second place, Prose) and Nathan Hirsch (third place, Expository). Polivka and Bishop will compete at the state meet in Salem and Krueger and Hirsch will go as alternates.

A State of Mind By VICKY HIRSCH of the Sun


he Nestucca Valley High School speech team hosted the District I/II speech tournament at their Cloverdale campus on April 5. The 19 Nestucca speech team members were joined by 71 speech team members from other schools in the district — Tillamook High School, Neah-Kah-Nie, McMinnville High, Canby High School, and Forest Grove. Four students from Nestucca qualified to attend the State Speech tournament in Salem, to be held April 25-26. Senior Andrea Polivka placed first in Expository with her speech on Harry Houdini and senior Nicole Bishop’s recitation from “Of Mice and Men” placed her second in the Prose category. Juniors Marie Krueger, third place in Prose with “My Girl,” and Nathan Hirsch, third place in Expository on the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, will attend state as alternates. Chelsea Wallace, junior, was a finalist in Radio Commentary. This is the second year that Nestucca has hosted the district meet, the first being six years ago when Kathleen Serven was the head coach. This year Serven assisted head coach David Schaefer with the team, and said regarding this year’s event, “David Schaefer pulled off a wonderful job.”

She also praised the girl’s chaperone Carolyn Hill as being “extremely helpful.” “I thought it went very smoothly. I was very pleased how it went,” Serven said of the district meet. Serven said she was surprised more Nestucca students didn’t move onto state, but also added that they are in a very competitive district. She cited as an example, Krueger placed fourth out of 70 prose competitors in a regular meet, but only placed third out of 15 at the state meet. As for the future of Nestucca’s speech team, Serven said she was “proud of all our kids and excited and looking forward to next year.” She added that she would like to see a Jr. High speech team formed at some point. She also said that though it is not certain if Schaefer will return as head coach next year, she believes he will still be involved in some way. “The team really loves him,” she said. The Nestucca speech squad, along with the speech teams from Tillamook High and Neah-Kah-Nie were honored at the inaugural Tillamook County Schools’ Speech and Debate Awards Celebration presented by Boosters of School Speech Association, held April 14 at the 2nd Street Public Market in Tillamook with more than 100 people in attendance. Krueger and Polivka received Certificates of Merit at the celebration and Krueger was awarded a $1,000 scholarship.

he Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will release more than 3,000 rainbow trout into Hebo Lake during the week of April 1319 in preparation for a free family fishing event at the popular North Coast fishing destination Saturday, April 19 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. “We’re putting a lot of fish in the lake for this event so we hope everyone will come out and take advantage of this opportunity,” said Ron Rehn, family fishing coordinator for ODFW’s North Coast Watershed District. “We’ll have everything you need for a fun day of fishing. All you have to do is show up.” A feature of ODFW’s Outdoor Education Program, the event is aimed at introducing people to fishing. To make learning — and catching fish — as fun and easy as possible, ODFW will provide rods, reels, tackle and bait at no charge on a first-come, first-served basis. Experienced instructors will be available to answer questions and offer assistance on every aspect of trout fishing, from baiting and casting a rod to catching and cleaning your fish. Anglers are welcome to bring their own gear, if they prefer, and lucky fishermen will be

allowed to keep up to five trout each. Hebo Lake is a 3-acre lake located within the Siuslaw National Forest approximately 24 miles southwest of Tillamook. As an added incentive to attend the free fishing event, the Forest Service will waive its usual $5 day use fee for admission to Hebo Lake Campground where the event will take place. Amenities at the campground include picnic tables, ADA barrier-free fishing platforms, restrooms, and several hiking trails. Kids ages 13 and under do not need fishing licenses. Those 14 and older will need to have a fishing license and should buy them ahead of time as they will not be sold at the event. Licenses are available for purchase at ODFW’s website ( and at its offices and retail license agents. Hebo Lake is located 3 ½ miles east of the Hebo Ranger Station on the Hebo Mountain Road. From Hebo, take Hwy. 22 ¼ mile east, then turn left onto Forest Road 14. For more information, contact Ron Rehn at 503-842-2741 or visit ODFW’s website and click on the “ODFW Outdoors” tab.

he U.S. Coast Guard is proposing to make a change to the Aids to Navigation system off Cape Kiwanda near Haystack Rock, and is seeking public comment. The proposed change is to the sound signal on Cape Kiwanda Bell Buoy, LLNR 665, from a bell to a whistle. According to the USCG, a whistle is more consistent and reliable than a bell, and is easier to maintain due to its durability in an offshore environment. USCG District 13 Waterways Management Branch Chief Commander Daryl Peloquin told the Sun that the possible change is in response to requests from mariners, requests that have included a petition signed by approximately 300 concerned citizens and a formal request from the Pacific City Dorymen’s Association. As reported in the March 21 issue of the Sun, the Dorymen’s Association asked the Coast Guard to “re-instate the whistle buoy at Cape the new location farther from shore and where Haystack Rock will tend to buffer the sound.” Peloquin added that changes to mariner’s aids normally come from either technology changes, waterways changes or, as in this case, a request from mariners. He said that already USCG has received a number of public comments — both for and against the return to a whistle buoy. The debate between a whistle and bell buoy harkens back to 2010, when, out of concern for maintenance costs, the USCG replaced the bell with a whistle buoy. As it turns out, that change resulted in an outcry from some coastal residents, some of which complained that the whistle buoy sound like a “sick cow” and was annoying. Since that time, the Coast Guard returned a bell to the site in a location slightly further west and to the north than the earlier whistle buoy location. The location change was a return to a position that dorymen say the buoy occupied prior to 1992. In addition to being better positioned for navigation to the beach at Cape Kiwanda, the current position is further offshore. Because of this, Pacific City Dorymen’s Association co-chair Craig Wenrick

speculates that should a whistle buoy be installed again, it should not be as loud as the previous installation. “(The proposed location) is almost in the same position as in pre-1992 (when we had) no complaints,” said Wenrick. Peloquin, too, acknowledged that it is possible the planned location — where the current bell buoy is positioned but further out from the most recent whistle buoy installation — will be not as annoying to residents sensitive to the sound of the whistle. “It’s possible the whistle will sound less often,” he said, noting that because it’s further out it shouldn’t be as heavily impacted by the waves. That said, he recognizes that it likely won’t be the perfect solution for all. “It should be slightly less loud,” he said, but “I’m sure there will still be some people that will be bothered by it.” For dorymen, the problem with the bell buoy extends beyond the too quiet clang of the bell compared with a whistle buoy. Since the bell buoy’s installation, the Sun has fielded complaints from several dorymen who have reported that not only is the bell relatively inaudible, but that sea lions also frequently perch themselves on the device — and that prevents the bell’s “clappers” from clanging. Peloquin told the Sun that a whistle buoy’s effectiveness would not be hampered by the visiting sea life. He also said that the clappers have a tendency to malfunction due to the continual hitting action. According to Peloquin, another advantage of returning to the whistle is giving mariners a chance to judge the swell before heading out. “We’re starting to get some comments that another reason (a return to a whistle buoy) is valuable is they can go to the beach and judge the swell by the sound of the buoy,” he said. “It’s actually helping them to make the decision of whether or not to go out.” Comments on the installation of a whistle buoy at Cape Kiwanda can be emailed to Feedback will be accepted until at least May 10, but Peloquin told the Sun that if comments are still coming in that date may be extended.

In the past year, the Pelican has captured top honors at the Jambalaya, Wild Mushroom and Chowder CookOffs. The Fish Taco Cook-Off runs from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at Lincoln City Culinary Center, 801 S.W. Highway 101, located on the fourth floor above Driftwood Public Library. At the competition, the Pelican culinary team will compete for the title of “Best Fish Taco” with J’s Fish and Chips, Nelscott Café and the new Taft’s Catering of Lincoln City, and Bay 839 of Newport. With wins from the last three consecutive cook-offs at the Culinary Center in the bag, the Pelican is eyeing a clean sweeep, a feat that has never been accomplished. While not an official entry into the competition, Culinary Center Executive Chef Sharon Wiest will also be offering up her own dish, a Wild Albacore

Tuna Taco, sponsored by the Oregon Albacore Commission, which will be prepared front and center on the demonstration stage. “I am very excited to showcase Oregon’s Wild Albacore Tuna,” said Wiest. “While the tuna run takes place from July through October, the Oregon fleet of fisherman now have the ability to freeze it almost immediately upon catch, which means we get to enjoy this fabulous product all year round.” Festival guests will determine the best fish taco through people’s choice voting. Admission is free and fish tacos are available for $1.50 each. Local beer and wine will be provided by Nelscott Wine Shop, and Captain Dan’s Pirate Pastry Shop and My Petite Sweet will offer up sweet treats to enjoy. The People’s Choice winner will be announced at 1:45 p.m. Also on tap will be the sounds of Eugene, Ore. musician Mark Alan, an acoustic artist hailed for his soulful and groove-oriented music. For more information on the Fish Taco Cook-Off, call the Lincoln City Visitor & Convention Bureau at 800452-2151 or visit

County Commissioner Tim Josi I’m seeking re-election because we need to find a responsible way to get our nation’s forests working again. Our neglect of this issue has resulted in overstocked and diseased forests. What we now experience — every summer — is massive carbon dioxide emitting forest fires that are extremely expensive to fight. Last year the federal government spent $1.1 billion in fire suppression and only $300 million reducing fuel load. Prudent management will result in much needed jobs and a healthy forest environment. In the Pacific Northwest, we harvested 3.8 billion board feet in 1987 from our federal forests. Today we’re lucky if the annual harvest is 350 million board feet yet the annual growth is 1,900 million board feet. This doesn’t make sense. I’m in a position to make a difference. Last year I was elected to represent the 15 western states as a member of the National Association of Counties Executive Committee. I am also on the board of a national committee that works on forest issues. These two positions allow me to work closely with members of Congress and county Commissioners from across the nation.

our of the youngest performers ever to play at a Neskowin Chamber Music concert, the members of the Ariel Quartet, will appear on Sunday, May 4 at 3 p.m. Although they are only in their late twenties, the quartet recently celebrated their twelfth anniversary as a group. They last performed at Neskowin in 2012. Formed in Israel, the group moved to the United States in 2004 so its members could continue their professional studies. The four attended the New England Conservatory’s prestigious Professional String Quartet Training Program and graduated in 2010. In January, the Ariel was named quartetin-residence at the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music. They have won a number of international prizes including the Grand Prize at the 2006 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and first prize at the “Franz Schubert and the Music of Modernity” in Graz, Austria in 2003. Highlights of the 2013-2014 season include two record-setting performances of the complete Beethoven cycle, a series of performances with cellist Alisa Weilerstein, a performance at New York’s 92nd Street Y, a concert with pianist Orion Weiss, and three residencies for the Perlman Music Program. Violinist Alexandra Kazovsky began playing at the age of six. Two years later, her family immigrated to Israel from Russia where she studied at the Rubin Conservatory and the Academy of Music and Dance in Jerusalem. She has performed as a soloist with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and Yad Harif Chamber Orchestra. Kazovsky has a bachelor’s degree from the New England Conservatory of Music and also graduated from its Professional String Quartet Studies program. She plays on a 1660 Jacob Steiner violin on loan from Yehuda Zisapel. Similarly, Israeli cellist Amit EvenTov started studying cello when she was six. Even-Tov won first prize in a

Page 18 • Pacific City SUN • April 18, 2014

number of competitions in 2001 and 2002. After winning a Jerusalem Academy Competition in 2003, she made a solo appearance with the academy orchestra and conductor Ilan Schul, an appearance that led to an appearance with the Israel Stage Orchestra and the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra in a live broadcast on Israel Radio. She recently graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music Professional String Quartet Studies program. Born in Munich in 1984, Jan Gruning followed private studies with principal violinists of both the Bavarian Radio Symphony and the Bavarian State Opera House with a 2002-08 stint studying at the Musikhochschule Lubeck. In September 2010, he enrolled in the New England Conservatory of Music from which he will receive his Masters degree later this year. Gruning has performed at various festivals and participated in master classes in both Europe and North America and played with other chamber groups. Israeli violinist Gershon Gerchikov began his violin studies when he was only five. He continued his training at the Rubin Conservatory and the Academy of Music and Dance, both located in Jerusalem. While still living in Israel, he performed with the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, Yad Harif Chamber Orchestra, and the St. Petersburg Radio Orchestra. He received his Masters degree from the New England Conservatory of Music. Gerchikov plays on a Petrus Guameri violin on loan from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation. The Ariel Quartet will offer an outreach program on Monday, May 5 at 8:20 a.m. at Taft High School. Camp Winema is located three miles north of Neskowin just west of Highway 101. Individual tickets are available at the door for $25, but people should call 503-965-6499 to get on a list. Season tickets for all the concerts cost $110.

n the 1980s a group of residents decided that it would be interesting to get some of the old timers together and have them tell what the area was like when they first moved to Pacific City/ Woods. The gatherings were held in the old Pacific City Presbyterian Church. These excepts are from one of those forums that included Walt Fisher, Si Fisher, Hildred Hall, Tony Hurliman and Berta Hurliman. Walt Fisher: Walt said he came by train in 1912 to Tillamook, then took the stage to Beaver where he stayed overnight, then to Cloverdale where his dad met them. The next part of the journey was by boat on the Nestucca to Woods. The family first lived in the Ferry building. The new outhouse was made from a hollow stump and a log across it to sit on. Walt said he fell in head first once, but since it was new, only up to his ears. He ran the ferry across the Nestucca River for two years before there was a bridge. The main buildings in town were: a store, and a little building beside it that had the Ocean Park News, salt house,


fishing shacks with western fronts and two barns on the east side of town plus the Edmunds Hotel. The 4th of July was a time for big celebrations. There was a grandstand behind Sears Sporting Goods store in the center of town. There were baseball games, concessions stands and a rodeo. They had championship wrestlers that came down here on the holidays. Walt said he was talking to the manager about how fierce they (wrestlers) were with each other, and then found out they all came in the same car and stayed in the same cabin. The bridge was built around 1920. Before that there was only a footbridge that washed away every winter, so they tied a cable to it so they could pull it out in high water. Walt’s mother, sister and brother ran the Sunday School in Woods. If you went for a full year you got a gold star next to your name. The hills were so bare you could see bear eating salal and huckleberry on the hills. The Della got stuck in the clam flats for three days once. Hildred Hall: It cost 50 cents to go over the Dolph toll road. The model T’s

came in over plank roads. Her father (Hagestrom) was a contractor and put up summer shacks. She called the beer hall a “bucket of blood.” Old jalopies used to drive over the bridge and out to the beach. Once off the bridge they would give it the gun as there was no road. She remembers a Chinese fellow cutting up fish. One was a 78-pound Chinook. Commercial fisherman had places down by the Bay. Miss Thompson sold beach front lots for ten dollars during the depression. Berta Hurliman: Berta said there were grand champion woman’s wrestling too. Fisher’s Chowder House was by the bridge. It had 10 seats at the counter and a couple of tables. Twenty-five cents bought a bowl of chowder, bread and butter, coffee and refills. Tony Hurliman: Grandpa Hurliman came with his brother Clem in 1910, and the family came in 1914. When asked how many Hurliman children there were, Tony said his father always said he had seven boys and each one had six sisters for a total of 42. Note: Pacific City was formerly called Ocean Park and was named Pacific City in 1909.

Steelhead season winds down By PAT GEFRE for the Sun


ell, winter steelhead fishing is definitely winding down. There are still lots of fish in the system, but most everyone has now focused their attentions on fishing for spring chinook in the valley. It will be a few weeks before they all come back for North Coast springers. The Willamette Valley traditionally receives their runs of springers ahead of the North Coast returns. Since winter fishing is tapering off, it might be a good time to reflect on this past winter’s season. In general, when we could fish, it seemed like there were plenty of numbers to keep most folks happy. The early Three Rivers fishery that typically starts in late November and runs through December seemed like the numbers were good when the water was fishable. An unseasonable lack of rain hurt that fishery a little bit — mostly because it’s very difficult to get winter steelhead to bite when the water is very low, clear and cold. Some folks made the adjustment and fished below Three Rivers in the Nestucca River and found that lots of winters were holding below Three Rivers waiting for the rains. Those folks that made that adjustment did quite well. The rains never did materialize in the proportions needed to make January a successful month. You just knew that sooner or later, it being winter in Oregon, that eventually we would pay the price and so came February. All the rains we should have received in prior months fell in February and what should have been one of our best fishing months was pretty much blown out with high, dirty water. In calendar days, February offered six days of somewhat fishable conditions. The only folks that were doing much in the way of fishing were the folks that were plunking at the mouth of Three Rivers. Again, those fishermen that made the adjustment did quite well, most just stayed home waiting the weather out. March was a much better month for fishermen, the weather simmered down, and the rivers dropped into shape, and to most everyone’s surprise there were very good numbers of steelhead coming into the Nestucca system. Most had believed that with all the high water in February that the bulk of the winter runs would be long gone and far upstream from normal fishing grounds. To the delight of most fishermen, this was not the case and March turned out to be a stellar month for the Nestucca, so much so, that we had many of the Tillamook guides that would

traditionally be fishing the Wilson River, here on the Nestucca. April started out pretty good for a few days, but has now really tapered off and so went the winter steelhead season. Seems like we had a very conscientious group of fishermen this winter season — everyone seemed to have the best interests for our native fishery in mind. It has taken awhile for the word to spread and for some to understand the reasons that you don’t fish diver-and-bait on a mixed run of native and hatchery. In general, I heard much less complaints about this method of fishing than in years past. The mortality rate on wild fish that are hooked on diver-and-bait is very high because they most often swallow diver with bait deeply. And because all native fish must be released, it makes it tough to release fish deeply hooked without mortality. I have often heard fishermen say “well the fish swam away and looked healthy.” Yes, that probably is true — their instinct to get away makes that so, but it’s what happens to the fish when it’s out of sight, after it bleeds for awhile and oxygen depletion and exhaustion set in. The most surprising to me is some of the phone calls we receive here at the shop while folks are out fishing. I get many calls asking if it is legal to keep this or that, or does this fish need to be fin clipped, or in the case of salmon, can we keep more than one. I know sometimes fishing regulations can be a challenge to understand, but the time to avail yourself of them is not when you have a fish in the net or lying in the bottom of your boat or dragged upon the bank while you are speed dialing the shop. Everyone has a responsibility to know the rules and regs on the water you are fishing. This Saturday, April 19 ODFW is hosting “Family Fishing Event at Hebo Lake.” Start time will be 9 a.m. and finish up around 2 p.m. ODFW will have their fully stocked trailer on site offering fishing rods, bait, and instruction for those who would like to have it. No license is required for those fishermen 13 years or younger. A lesser inexpensive juvenile license is required for anglers ages 1417, and a full adult license for those 18 years and older. The limit is five fish, and ODFW has stocked an additional 3,000 for the event. There are some trophy trout, too, as fish in the 3- to 5-pound range are being stocked for the event as well. This is always a great opportunity for parents and grandparents to get youngsters out and fishing — especially if you have no fishing equipment. It’s all provided free of charge!

‘Cats sweep Pirates, but fall to Royals By DEE MOORE for the Sun


he Nestucca Bobcats baseball team came off of a three-game sweep against Neah-Kah-Nie to lose 10-0 on Tuesday, April 15, against the Portland Christian Royals in the first of a three-game series. According to coach Jim Kiser, the Royals are one of the top ranked teams in the state. “I thought we played really well, that we did a pretty good job. We gave up nine runs in the second inning but we would have given up three or four if we had played clean,” Kiser said. The ‘Cats struggled to hit the ball throughout the game. Most of the players have not faced the caliber of pitching that the Royals pitcher threw, Kiser said.
