PACIFIC CITY-NESTUCCA VALLEY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE President Merrianne Hoffman says the Feb. 1 closure of the Cloverdale Visitor Center has become necessary because of a lack of volunteers to staff the location. unmanned visitor center in Pacific City — located within the Inn at Pacific City — open and will move brochures from the Cloverdale location to that spot. Hoffman said a part of the decision is what the Chamber perceives as a shift in how people plan trips. She said we are in an age where people are using their smart phones and iPads to do their trip research. “We’re focusing (our efforts) on doing what we just did — upgrading the website (found at www.pacificcity.com) so its more usable to users so we can reach a broader audience.”

Though she said that in an ideal world the Chamber would have been able to keep the center open until the completion of Noble Wayside, a project under development that will bring restrooms, a bus stop and picnic tables to downtown Cloverdale, that wasn’t practical. “It’s kind of expensive and not the best way so spend our member’s money — just to provide restrooms for people passing through,” she said.

ODFW seeks comment on plan for coastal salmon

O

regon Department of Fish and Wildlife will host six public open houses in January — including one in Tillamook on Jan. 21 — to solicit comments on a draft management plan for six coastal salmon and trout species. The draft “Coastal Multi-Species Conservation and Management Plan” describes the conservation status of these species and outlines a suite of actions related to harvest and hatchery programs, predators, and habitat to sustain these species and improve overall fishing. According to ODFW, the goal is to better balance risks to wild fish populations by being conservative in some areas while also increasing fishing and harvest opportunities in others. The species and area for the plan include spring and fall chinook, chum salmon, winter and summer steelhead, and coastal cutthroat trout along much of the Oregon coast (from Cape Blanco to Seaside). The draft plan was developed with input, compromise and consensus from four stakeholder teams distributed along the coast whose members represented recreational and commercial fishing interests, local watershed councils, conservation groups, resource producers, local government and Native American tribes. In addition, the department con-

ducted an opinion survey of anglers and non-anglers about their general views regarding fishing in Oregon and wild fish conservation, and received informal feedback from other individuals and groups, such as independent scientists and volunteer groups from the Salmon and Trout Enhancement Program. According to Tom Stahl, ODFW’s Conservation and Recovery Program Manager, all of this input was used to help develop the draft plan and the Department is now seeking additional input from the public before finalizing recommendations to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission later this spring. Open houses will be held Jan. 16 at ODFW Headquarters, 4034 Fairview Industrial Drive SE, Salem, 6-9 p.m.
 Jan. 21 at Tillamook County Library’s Meeting Room, 1716 Third St., Tillamook, 6-9 p.m. 
Jan. 23 at Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn, 3019 N. Coast Hwy., Newport, 6-9 p.m.
, Jan. 27 at Douglas County Library Meeting Room, 1409 NE Diamond Lake Blvd., Roseburg, 6-9 p.m.
, Jan. 28 at North Bend Community Center, 2222 Broadway St., North Bend, 6-9 p.m.
, and January 29 at Reedsport Community Center, 451 Winchester Ave., Reedsport, 6-9 p.m. “The Coastal Multi-Species Plan is the agency’s first attempt to create a

management plan for multiple species that are not listed under the Federal Endangered Species Act and for which the State of Oregon has a fair amount of management flexibility due to the relative good health of the populations,” Stahl said. The Plan takes a portfolio approach where, for example, a hatchery program change on one stream to protect wild fish could be balanced by an expanded hatchery program on a nearby stream. “We realize it’s unrealistic to expect that every river will be everything to everybody,” Stahl said. “So instead we are trying to create a portfolio of varied management actions throughout the Coastal planning area, balancing reduced conservation risk to wild fish with increased fishing opportunity in different locations.” Members of the public will find the draft plan at www.dfw.state.or.us/fish/ CRP/coastal_multispecies.asp, and can comment on the plan at a public open house, or by sending written comments to ODFW.CoastalPlan@state.or.us by Feb.10. There will be additional opportunity for public comment when the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission considers the plan at two future meetings: March 7 in Tigard and April 25 in North Bend.

NVCA starts funding drive Monies for security fence needed as first step in developing community park

By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun

N

estucca Valley Community Alliance President Gloria Scullin told members of the Pacific City-Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce that the nonprofit is beginning the push to raise funds for a fence that will provide security between its planned 2.1-acre community park on the grounds of Tillamook Lightwave’s Cable Landing Station, which is located near Cape Kiwanda, and facilities already in use on the property. Scullin estimates the 784 linear foot fence will cost $21,000. She says the high cost is due to the security features the fence will need to have. The fence will accomplish two important tasks — it will provide security for the University of Washington, the current tenant of the station, and it will allow NVCA to lock up their park after dark. On behalf of UW, which is operating from the site as a part of the

National Science Foundation’s Ocean Observatories Initiative, TLW is requiring the fence to be installed before any work can begin on the park. In addition, they will need to construct a concrete or asphalt apron that is expected to cost another $5,000 to $8,000. Though TLW has agreed to front the money for the project, they will be looking for payment within 30 days. Scullin says that NVCA is planning on applying for a number of grant opportunities — including Tillamook PUD’s Community Grant program — but they are also hoping for a jump start from the community. NVCA is also planning a fundraiser in March to help fund the effort. Scullin says the goal is to have funds in place in time to have the fence in by April. To find out more about how you can contribute — either with taxdeductible contributions or volunteer efforts — contact the NVCA via email at nvcainfo@gmail.com.

t may be the middle of winter, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to make plans for spring plantings at Pacific City’s “Garden for Sharing,” located on the grounds of South Tillamook County Library, 6200 Camp Street, Pacific City. For 2014, the Community Garden has instituted a few changes. Because of the popularity of the garden, the group is having prospective gardeners submit applications instead of operating on a first-come, first-served basis as they did

in 2013. Gardeners will be limited to one plot and are encouraged to share with others. As part of the application process, applicants will be asked what their vision for being a part of the community garden is and if they will be including children in the effort. Applications are now available at the library and are due by Jan. 31. The committee of organizers Dawn Beyer, Sally Rissel and Laura Seide will decide who they will award the plots to. Annual dues are $25. For more information on the application process, contact Dawn Beyer at 541-450-0656 or morningsong95@ yahoo.com.

Managing Tourist’s Dollars EDC, County hope to ratify TLT agreement by Jan. 22 By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun

T

illamook County is expected to reach an agreement with the Economic Development Council for EDC to manage the Transient Lodging Tax, which voters passed by a 2-1 margin last November, no later than Jan. 22. Commissioners paved the way for the agreement when they came to consensus to begin developing an intergovernmental agreement between the County and EDC during a workshop on Dec. 11. The EDC will next meet to discuss the current proposal on Jan. 14, at noon, during a special meeting held at Tillamook Bay Community College. If the group comes to consensus during that meeting and Tillamook County Commissioners okay it in their meeting the following day, the deal will be done. Otherwise, EDC will again take it up during their regular monthly meeting on Jan. 21, also at TBCC at noon, and commissioners will have one last crack at it during their meeting on Jan. 22. The basic structure of the arrangement will be a sevento nine-member advisory committee that will report to the EDC, which will in turn make recommendations to county commissioners, who will make final determinations on allocation of TLT funds. EDC Vice Chair Doug Olson said that the group will ask commissioners to enlarge the advisory group from the originally proposed seven to nine. “We’d like two more,” said Olson. We’d like one to represent the retail food interests because that’s tourist driven for the most part, and we’d like one to represent retail interests.” “I’m OK with that,” Commissioner Mark Labhart told

Community celebrates ‘School Board Recognition Month’ The Nestucca Valley School District will join the other 196 school districts throughout Oregon to celebrate January as “School Board Recognition Month.” “It’s a time to celebrate these people who meet 12 times a year and make some tough decisions and put themselves out personally, as well,” said Kathryn Hedrick, superintendent of Nestucca Valley Schools. She added that school boards have a long — and important — history in U.S. education. In Nestucca’s case, a seven-member board is charged with making the difficult decisions in keeping the district running. The 2014 board includes chair Ken Henson (2011-current), vice-chair Annis Leslie (2010-current), Tami Menefee (2012-current), Diane Wilkinson,

the Sun. “I’m not wedded with seven.” The other members would include three representing lodging properties — one in each part of the county, one mayor, an EDC member, a representative of the county, an at large member not affiliated with hospitality, an at large member representing the hospitality industry, and a second representative of the hospitality industry that could be out of county. Once the agreement is reached, the real work will begin. A big part of that will be identifying which portion will go towards tourism related facilities and what part will go to a tourism marketing campaign. The eventual plan could also include the hiring of a tourism promotion and facilities director. Olson said there will likely be no money available until the third quarter of the year as the first return on the new tax — from January through March receipts — won’t be due until April. “This is a big deal, and it needs to be done right,” said Olson. “Some people want to spend the money starting tomorrow, some want to sit on it for a year and figure it out. My personal opinion is a happy medium. “I’m hoping (improvements and marketing campaigns) will be something equitable and everybody buys in. I’ve personally identified nine projects in South Tillamook County, like the expansion of the Kiawanda Community Center. “That probably has merit, but it’s going to have to pass some kind of test against projects that come from elsewhere. My message today is if you want to be on this committee, start thinking about it and there’ll be a formal application after the agreement is signed.” For more information about the Tillamook County Economic Development Council, visit www.edctc.com.

Hedrick said in between Boisa’s many years of experience, Henson’s leadership and the several new faces, the board is serving the district well. Though it hasn’t always been smooth sailing, Boisa, who is the elder statesman in the group, is pleased with the way the current group is working together to solve the issues facing the school. “We keep getting better,” said Boisa. “We’re getting more involved. People do their homework more. The board is concerned about the district and they’re all good people.” She also sees a message of hope as she and her fellow board members do

the work of the district. “Everyone has an opinion and I like that,” she says. “I think our school district is on the right track, and we haven’t always been.” “It’s been a positive experience,” added vice-chair Annis Leslie. “I got on the board at a tumultuous time, but the board seems to be working well now. I’m confident in it.” Leslie is also pleased to see that positive vibe expanding into the students, staff and community. “There’s a lot more school spirit and the community is getting more involved. I’m happy to see that,” she said. The Nestucca Valley School Board next meets Monday, Jan. 27, at 6 p.m., in the school’s media room. For more information, call 503-392-4892.

Chamber urges new funding formula for recycling station

P

acific City-Nestucca Valley Chamber board member Doug Olson told members on Jan. 7 that the group’s board is questioning the financial proposal behind a proposed recycling station at Cape Kiwanda. As previously reported, Tillamook County Solid Waste Manager David McCall has proposed placing a recycling center at the site that would feature two 32-gallon waste compactors, two 50- to 65-gallon recyclable materials collection units, and one collection unit for cans and bottles. The price tag of such an improvement is estimated at $13,000 — a cost that McCall suggested being split in thirds with Solid Waste, Tillamook County Parks and the community picking up equal shares. But Olson said that during the Chamber’s Jan. 6 board meeting, the group told officials “that that last third was not such a good idea.” Olson said that while the Chamber recognizes the fact that the current garbage dumpsters located next to the

restrooms at Tillamook County’s Cape Kiwanda parking lot are being abused, it questions whether the Chamber — or the community — is the proper source for partial funding. He said that the Chamber’s position is that “it’s a county function, and the county should pay for it.” It was a position that Tillamook County Commissioner Mark Labhart says he understood. “I understand where they’re coming from,” he said. “It’s a county facility. We’re just trying to see if there’s a way we can work through this. I’m not going to say: ‘We’re not going to do it because the Chamber is not going to contribute.’ We’re going to figure it out one way or another. We’re not going to let it die. We’re going to fix this problem.” The Tillamook County Parks Advisory Committee is next scheduled to meet on Jan. 28 at 3 p.m. at the Tillamook County Courthouse, at which time they are expected to further address the issue.

Coast Guard rescues surfer in distress The U.S. Coast Guard, Station North Bend, lifted a stranded surfer at Cape Kiwanda to safety on Dec. 30, after both a USCG helicopter and members of the Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District responded to a call for help. Nestucca Fire Chief Kris Weiland told the Sun that the District received the call at 1:57 p.m. and were on the scene by 2:10 p.m. — about the same time the Coast Guard helicopter arrived. USCG Pilot Lt. Sam Hill told the Sun that the surfer, who was just outside of the surf zone, was flailing his arms and

indicating he wanted to get out of the water. Rescue swimmer Ben Morris was lowered on a hoist to bring the surfer — who authorities did not identify — aboard. Because the helicopter was in the midst of their normal run up the coast and were low on fuel they transported the surfer to Newport, where local EMS were waiting. Hill said he declined service and got a ride back with a friend. He added that he appeared fine other than being slightly hypothermic. Hill also said he couldn’t feel his hands, as he had not been wearing gloves.

Great Speaker Series returns with gender and society discussion “Mind the Gaps: How Gender Shapes Our Lives,” a free conversation with Jade Aguilar on Saturday, Jan. 25, at Tillamook County Pioneer Museum, will focus on the disparities among the genders that still prevail — especially the intersections of race, class, immigration status,and geography. The 1 p.m. talk will also address questions such as: “What can these disparities tell us about society’s values and priorities?” and “How can we better understand the complexities of gender’s effects on our daily lives and identities?” As part of the Great Speaker Series, the program is hosted by the Pioneer Museum through its Daisy Fund and sponsored by Oregon Humanities. Aguilar is an assistant professor

of sociology and women’s and gender studies at Willamette University. Her areas of study are gender, sexuality, and family, and her main area of focus is the study of intentional communities. Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state’s future. For more information about this free community discussion, call the Pioneer Museum at 503-842-4553 or visit www.tcpm.org.

‘Women in the Arts, Redux’ opens at Pioneer Museum The Tillamook County Pioneer Museum will fete its newest art show, “Women in the Arts, Redux,” during an artist reception Saturday, Jan. 25, 2:304 p.m. The art show, which is open through Feb. 16, features art by Breanna Moran and Rebecca Spaniel in the museum’s Main and Northwest Galleries. After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in drawing and painting from Biola University in 2003, Moran pursued a career in visual art as a freelance artist and set painter in the Southern California entertainment industry. In 2008, her art career took an unexpected turn when she had the opportunity to lead a group of tourists through the Galleria Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, Italy, where she discovered a love for teaching. She relocated to Portland, Ore., in 2008 and graduated with a Master’s of Arts in Teaching from George Fox University in 2010. Inspired by the beauty of the Northwest, Moran’s current body of work attempts to distill the complex matrix of textures, colors and light found in the forests and shores of the Oregon coast. These latest images

attempt to capture the personality of the various inhabitants and the rugged grandeur of their natural surroundings. “When I am not up to my elbows in paint and charcoal in the studio, I’m the art, photography and ceramics teacher at Tillamook High School,” says Moran. “I hope to be able to encourage a new generation of artists to pursue a rewarding career in the arts.” In 2013, she also was commissioned by the Tillamook Mural Project Committee to design and paint the mural on the Latimer Quilt and Textile Center’s repository. Spaniel grew up in Charleston, South Carolina, fishing the marshlands and exploring the Appalachian forests, where she first discovered her love of nature and painting. After graduating from the College of Charleston with her Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art/Studio Art, she began a journey across North America, visiting over 15 states in the US and three Canadian provinces before landing in Alaska. After experiencing an Alaskan winter, Spaniel decided to rejoin the continental United States as an Oregon resident where she found inspiration and a community that embraced her and her art.

A Dedication to Service By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun

I

f an area wants to thrive, it needs a heart for service. And that’s just what the ladies and gentlemen of the Nestucca Valley Lions Club strive for. Lead by John Griggs, the club was formed in the early 1980s by a group of South Tillamook County business people who wanted to have a club that helps the community — one that would keep the funds raised where they came from. To this day, it’s a mission that the club holds true to. The Lions Club is part of the world’s largest service organization, Lions International. While the first thing you might think of when it comes to the Lions are its famous elephant ears, which they sell at the Tillamook County Rodeo, Dory Days, Clover’s Day, and other community events, that’s really just the start of their service. The elephant ears, and other fundraisers such as their community calendars, provide the funds and Lions members the hearts behind their numerous service-oriented activities. And there are many. One of the longest standing commitments the Lions have made is to offer sight and hearing services, a service that has a longtime history with the national Lions organization, which got its start in 1917. In 1925, Helen Keller addressed the Lions Clubs International Convention in Cedar Point, Ohio, and challenged Lions to become “knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness.” Since then, the group has worked to aid the blind and visually impaired. Locally, the Nestucca Valley Lions Club collects scores of glasses every year, which are re-purposed to those in need. As part of that effort, the Lions club supports the Oregon

Sight and Hearing Foundation. But that’s really just the start of what local Lions members do. This year, for the second year in a row, the group partnered with the Nesko Women’s Club to assemble and deliver Christmas food and gift baskets to needy families. They also cosponsor many events and activities including Clover’s Day, an Easter egg hunt (held the Saturday before Easter at Nestucca Valley High School), and an annual trip to the Oregon legislature for area high school students. The group also hands out $3,000 worth of scholarships for high school grads, contributes to the local Cub Scouts (Pack 179), the Kiawanda Community Center’s annual Halloween party, and the Start Making A Reader Today reading program. As they are able, they also offer limited financial assistance to people facing a tragedy — such as a house lost in a fire. The group also hoists flags during major holidays both in Pacific City and in Cloverdale and hands out monthly recognition awards to area grade school students. “It’s a chance to give back to the community, to be a part of the community,” says Lions President Verne Mobley. “The fellowship is great. The money we raise goes to good causes.” Griggs, who has been involved since the beginning of the local club, says he likes the fact that the money raised stays here — right where it belongs. “I like the whole concept of people helping people,” says club member Roger Tracey. “John is the best example of that kind of person I’ve every met. We’re inspired by examples.” For more information about the Nestucca Valley Lions Club and how you can become a member, call President Verne Mobley at 503-3924436.

In Support of the Seahawks First Female Head Brewer at Pelican Brewing Co. creates Seahops Pale Ale for Hawk and hop lovers Whitney Burnside is not only the first female head brewer of Pelican Brewing Company’s Pacific City location, she is a Seattle native and a die-hard Seahawks fan. Her latest Pelican beer was brewed and named in support of the Seahawks. With an original gravity of 12 degrees PLATO (to honor the 12th Woman), Seahops is a delicious Pale Ale available in limited locations around Seattle and Portland on draft only. Whitney (one of the hottest young female brewers in the nation) will be in Seattle, visiting FX McCrory’s and Collins Pub during the game to celebrate Hawks and hops. This beer has been so popular, that Whitney has brewed another batch to ensure availability on game day, Jan. 19, at Pelican Pub & Brewery in Pacific City and at the Tillamook Tap Room, too. Pelican Brewing Co. is among the most honored breweries in the Northwest, winning more than 260 medals and “Brewpub of the Year” four times at national and international competitions. To celebrate the Hawks progress in the playoffs, Pelican Brewing Co. will

be giving away a weekend in Pacific City including a two-night stay, tour of the brewery and tastings with Whitney to someone who fills out an entry form on gameday in selected locations where Seahops is being poured in Seattle, Washougal, Portland, and Newport. In Seattle, find Seahops (while it lasts) at FX McCrory’s, Collins Pub, The SixGill, and Brouwer’s Café. In Portland at Bottles, Uptown Market and Alberta Street Public House, in Washougal at A Beer at a Time and in Newport at the Deep End Café. Resembling Russell Wilson leading the Seahawks to victory, Calypso hops are the unique star QB of this beer. According to the brewery, it features delicious, fruity notes with hints of apple and pear. Centennial hops take the handoff to give a spicy citrus aroma with a hint of floral. The defensive line of pale and crystal malts lends itself to a smooth clean character, a subtle sweetness, and lightly toasted undertones that support the hop profile all the way to the end zone.

THE TILLAMOOK COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY recently placed 15 geocaching treasures near historical sites in Tillamook County. Above, Society secretary Sally Rissel has her hands on a “cache” at the end of a hunt.

Cache This!

Tillamook Co. Historical Society gets in on the Geocaching craze By SALLY RISSEL for the Sun

I

f you like treasure hunting, you will love geocaching. A year ago, I had no idea what this word even meant, but I have slowly become educated as to the popularity and attraction of this new sport. I became involved because Tillamook County Historical Society, with the help of Dan Russell, just placed 15 caches (containers) near historical sites in Tillamook County. TCHS is hoping that this will draw more people to read the historical markers we have placed and therefore learn more about Tillamook County History. We have been getting steady feedback from people who have found the caches and they have mailed us about how much they have learned from reading our historical markers. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunt using Global Positioning System-enabled devices. Geocaching was born in Oregon about 10 years ago and it has exploded in popularity in the past several years, thanks to the proliferation of GPS-enabled smart phones. It is similar to orienteering, but geocaching is based entirely on the use of GPS technology so you can hone in on the precise location. The GPS can get you close, but you still need to hunt around the area you locate to find the cache by lifting rocks and looking under tree trunks, in pipes or under bridges. The cache is a small waterproof vessel such as a film canister or plastic prescription bottle that contains a few trinkets and small logbook or scrap

of paper that allows “geocachers” to scratch down their name, or geocach handle and the date. The cache sometimes contains an object that serves as the prize for the geocaching hunt and the finder can leave some small object to replace it. Geocaching takes people to places they may have never been and there are now Geo Tour programs that combine history, geology and local culture with geocaching. There are more than 30 Geo Tours everywhere from Iceland to British Columbia. Geocachers have helped tourism as they often travel in groups and spend money in the area they are exploring. Children love doing it with their family and it gives everyone a chance to get outside and explore. Geocaching is said to be one of the fastest growing outdoor sports in the world, with 2 million geocaches hidden worldwide. Tillamook County has many geocache sites. More than 1 million users have downloaded geocaching.com’s App. I decided I needed to actually try this new sport for myself in order to more fully understand it. I enlisted the help of several of my grandchildren to help me on my first adventure. I downloaded the geocache App and signed in for the free trial. The phone put in my location and pointed me toward a cache nearby. It didn’t take us long to find the cache, and we added something of our own, plus signed in on the little piece of paper. Eight other people had signed the log before us, beginning in August 2013. Everyone was very excited and wanted to start hunting for more around Pacific City. What a great activity to do with your family, even on a rainy day.

t’s been a struggle for the Nestucca Bobcats basketball team since returning from the holiday break. So far, two varsity members have quit and an injury has put another, junior Keenan Wenrick, on the bench. These losses have handicapped the team and have resulted in losses as the athletes struggle to compensate with a new team dynamic. So far, the team has lost four games, most recently to Faith Bible on Tuesday, Jan. 7. “We came out and played pretty well during the first quarter (against Faith Bible),” said coach Jim Kiser. “Not having Keenan hurt us bad,” he said. Nestucca dropped the game to Faith Bible, 29-65. “Faith Bible is very athletic,” he said of the loss. “We gave up a few easy shots.” Sophomore Brett Elder led the scoring with 16 points; senior Max Kirkendall followed with 9 points, and senior Nolan Dimmitt scored 2 as did sophomore John Nix. According to Kiser, he has taken measures to compensate for the lost team members. He moved

he first half of the basketball season has been rough for the Lady Bobcats basketball team. They took on Faith Bible Tuesday, Jan. 7, losing 14- 39. It was one of eight consecutive losses for the team whose record is 1-9 overall. “I thought we started really well,” coach Tim Foster said of the game against Faith Bible. The Lady ‘Cats scored five points in the first quarter, four in the third and five in the fourth quarter. Senior Jackie Wilkinson was the high scorer putting four points on the board; she was followed by sophomore Jillian Wilkinson who added three more. “We had a few easy opportunities to score in the first half but couldn’t convert, and it seemed to sap our energy a bit,” Foster said. “At this point, we are still using games to improve and gain experience. The girls did take some steps forward. We just have to continue being aggressive and trying to get the ball to the rim.” While it has been an uphill struggle for the Lady ‘Cats, they are showing improvement and learning how to approach the game with confidence and skill, according to Foster. The team has had several different coaches over the past three years, all of whom have had different coaching and playing styles, and it hasn’t been easy for

up a promising JV player to the varsity team, and he has been giving a less experienced varsity player more court time. But, a winning team is a well-oiled machine and for the ‘Cats, this means a new learning curve. “It’s still a bit different,” Kiser said of the new team dynamic. “Offensively, right now we need to work on being patient shooting.” The team, he added, is struggling defensively. It is early in the season and the team has more than enough time to find its groove and get back to winning games. “We are not out of anything yet,” the coach said. “Teams tend to make runs. We can’t give up. We have to continue to work. I am trying to motivate them.” Hopes run high. Kiser expects the team to soon be playing as well as they were at the beginning of the season. The team has seen growth, the coach said, and their performance has improved both mentally and physically. “I can see an improvement in confidence, too,” he said. “They are getting better.”

the returning players. “… really we are starting over and approaching the game in a different way and it is going to take some time to instill the style and attitude of play I expect,” Foster said. “You can’t replicate game experience no matter how hard you try; we try to instill competitiveness and intensity in practice drills and hopefully that becomes habit,” he said. He says the ladies greatest weakness is scoring and this skill doesn’t come overnight. Though some of the team members are potential scorers, many athletes lack the self-assurance. “Team shooting is improving and we have a few girls that could develop into good shooters, but we lack confidence and the experience to create our shots by going to the basket,” Foster said. “As you watch our games you notice that our shots are looking better, and we take a lot of good shots, but we just haven’t been able to knock them down on a consistent basis.” Foster’s methods are paying off and he expects to soon see the team’s training and hard work be demonstrated with more points on the board. “Most of the improvements have yet to show up in the stats or on the scoreboard, but everyday the girls are getting better. “I keep telling the girls to just keep shooting and shoot with confidence and they’ll start to fall,” Foster said.

FISHING&OUTDOORS

Winter Steelhead expected to be in full swing by February By PAT GEFRE for the Sun

H

appy New Years everyone! Cold dry weather has still dominated the first week of the new year. Winter steelhead has remained fairly slow but enough fish are being caught to keep folks interested in coming out and trying. Even though fishing is not red hot and the water is low and clear, it has been markedly better than in some years where we had far too much rain and the rivers were flooded and not fishable for long periods. So I guess I would prefer the current conditions to some years past. But all that is about to change. Weather forecasts for the next few days call for steady rains. Since Jan. 7, the Nestucca River has risen nearly 12 inches when the river started the morning at 4.68 feet. By Jan. 9, the river was at 5.6 feet. The rise has been gradual so the river conditions, so far, have remained fishable. Water clarity is good and drift ability is good. At 4.6 feet, the only stretch of river that can be negotiated in a drift boat is Farmer Creek to Cloverdale. At 5.6 feet, many more river miles can be accessed by boat. At current levels, you can safely drift from 4th bridge at Wolf Creek Road off of Blaine Road all the way to Cloverdale. It is early in the season for the main stream Nestucca steelhead to start showing up. The run of steelhead that most Photo courtesy of Pat Gefre have currently been fishing is the early FORECASTED STEADY RAINS are expected to improve river conThree Rivers run of steelhead.

Most ing to the Governor, all people who fish the Columbia fishermen I have sold licenses to are still surprised and River and its tributaries will benefit by him moving wanting to know why they have to pay the additional the nets so they must now pay for the fish being raised fee. I addressed this issue four weeks ago when writing for the gillnetters. I just came, this afternoon, from my article for the Sun. I received a phone call from a attending the ODFW Salmon and Trout Advisory Comgentleman in Pacific City who thanked me for my armittee meeting, held in Salem at ODFW headquarters. ticles in general and then proceeded to tell me I didn’t One of the guest speakers was Rick Hargraves, assishave my facts correct.

First off, my channel gillnetters. That is a direct comment from the beef is with the Governor of Oregon — not Mr. Bowles assistant administrator. My whole point was the Govor ODFW. I think Mr. Bowles has a very tough job, ernor stole our vote — something that I see as sacred. and he does it well for the most part. I can agree with Why bother to vote at all if the Governor can just deem about 95 percent of what ODFW does — they function us unknowledgeable and veto our vote by executive quite well as I see it. I will again state my case for my order? You should not be jumping up and down with displeasure with our Governor. Fact, in November 2012 joy if you were on the side of removing the nets.

You remember the should have nets in the Columbia, but I do not think it saying, they came for the fellow down the street and I should come at the expense of our voting rights.
