WORK TO REPAIR the drainage and road surface of Elderberry Road and related roads began on March 19. Tillamook County is repairing this portion of the local access road in Pacific City Heights under a revised policy that allows the county to service local access roads under certain narrowly defined conditions, which commissioners passed on Feb. 5. A key point in the repair — and the revised ordinance — is the fact that Elderberry Lane is a documented emergency evacuation route, hence the county’s duty to make sure it’s in good repair. The Pacific City Heights Neighborhood Association has raised $12,000 to foot their share of the bill — agreed to be 25 percent. Tillamook County Public Works director Liane Welch told the Sun work, which includes road surface work on portions of Riverview Drive, Elderberry Lane, High Road and Topping Road at the Simmons intersection, is expected to take two weeks. At left, workers excavate a ditch on Elderberry Lane between High Road and Riverview Drive. Culvert works is also part of the scope of repair. Once completed, local residents will be responsible for maintaining the improvements.

TILLAMOOK BAY COMMUNITY COLLEGE president Connie Green (at far left) thanked community members for their support at an Appreciation Breakfast on March 12 that celebrated TBCC’s recently earned accreditation status.

Thanks for Your Support TBCC president sends a message of appreciation to the community for college’s recent accreditation By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun

T

illamook Bay Community College’s seven-year journey towards accreditation, a journey that reached its end in late January, was feted on March 12 when TBCC president Connie Green thanked community members and key players during a tour of the college’s three campuses. The round of thanks started with a breakfast at TBCC’s South County Campus, which is located on the grounds of Nestucca Valley Jr.-Sr. High School. With the accreditation, Green pledged an even greater ear to what the area would like to see in their community college. “What happens when we (became) fully accredited is something changes,” she said. “What changes is that (we) no longer have to listen to another college. What changes is that you listen to the community 150 percent, not 100 percent. “The reason we’re doing the celebration really is to thank you because our hope is to give you back everything you’ve given us. Our hope is that by listening 150 percent, we’ll be able to do what we can to make our community event better.” As part of the celebration at the South County campus, Green pointed

to the work of the Nestucca Valley School District board, its superintendent Kathryn Hedrick and principal Randy Wharton, who helped to design TBCC’s Cloverdale building. “You can’t do this work unless you have a really strong partner,” she said. “Randy has been an amazing partner in making the everyday things work.” The college was previously accredited through a partnership with Portland Community College. But now, having received a letter of confirmation on Jan. 23 from the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, they are on their own. In the letter, the NWCCU commended the college “for developing deep and meaningful connections with community partners through fostering a local culture that values the importance of education.” Future plans for TBCC include reaching out to universities in an effort to create more degree partnership options for students that begin at TBCC and touching bases with local businesses with the goal of offering training that’s better customized to the needs of local employers. The college is in the process of approving its first degree without PCC, which will be in Agriculture and Natural Resources.

Building permits halted in floodplain

County officials seek compliance with FEMA standards By SCOTT GILBERT for the Sun

T

illamook County has stopped issuing building permits in the Nestucca River floodplain in Pacific City and is planning a formal moratorium on such permits that could last a year or more, following decades of improper permitting uncovered by a Federal Emergency Management Agency audit in 2012. County officials, acting to avoid crippling consequences from the federal agency, are unhappily moving forward with the moratorium, which Pacific City realestate broker Barbara Bell Taylor called “another nail in the coffin of real estate here in South County.” The moratorium and associated issues will be discussed at a public meeting of the Pacific City-Woods Citizens Advisory Committee at 10:30 a.m. April 19 at Pacific Coast Bible Church, 33570 Brooten Road, next to the Pacific City Post Office. Attendees will include Bryan Pohl, the new director of the Tillamook County Department of Community Development; Christine Shirley, the National Flood Insurance Program coordinator for the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development; and Tillamook County Commissioners Bill Baertlein and Tim Josi. A letter sent by Pohl to the state on March 14 started a 45-day period before the county commissioners can formalize the moratorium in a public hearing, likely to be held around the end of April. Building permits, required for the construction or alteration of homes and other property features, will not be issued during the moratorium in the Nestucca floodplain from the river’s confluence with the bay to just upstream of Sanders Creek. In the northern portion of Tillamook County, building permits will not be issued along the lower reaches of the Nehalem River and its North Fork. Pohl is taking bids from three engineering consulting firms for a one- to three-month study of the rivers’ floodways to create new flood maps. The maps would then be submitted to FEMA, starting what can be a 300day period before final approval. There is some hope that the approval time frame could be shortened by a few months, but there is a risk that it could take longer. “We can hurry up and do our part rather quickly,” Josi told the Sun, “but FEMA takes their time.” The deficiencies uncovered by FEMA’s 2012 “Community Assistance Visit” have already caused the county to be dropped from the agency’s Community Rating System. As a result, property owners recently lost the benefit of a 20 percent discount in flood-insurance premiums. Now local officials are acting to keep the county from being put on probation by FEMA, which administers the crucial National Flood Insurance Program. Probation would result in a massive spike countywide in premiums for flood insurance. Flood insurance, typically required by mortgage lenders for areas susceptible to flooding, is only available in communities that participate in the NFIP, Pohl wrote in a letter for distribution to residents. Participation in the NFIP also makes communities eligible for flood disaster assistance. Four requested building permits for properties in the Nestucca floodplain have not been issued. Three of them would involve changes in the floodway (the area likely to flood every year) and one in the flood fringe (the area calculated to have a 1 percent chance of flooding in any given year). A key deficiency highlighted by FEMA, Pohl said, is that for many years the county failed to perform “no-rise analyses” that are required for any development in a floodway. A no-rise analysis indicates whether changes in a floodway would cause an upstream increase in the base flood elevation, or BFE. “The base flood elevation is the height of a flood in a 100-year storm,” a storm that has a 1 percent chance of occurring in any year, Pohl explained in a March 12 phone interview. Because of the lack of analyses, FEMA found that there’s no way to know the actual BFE without the new engineering study. “Apparently what happened was, there was nobody in the department who knew that there were separate floodway maps from flood fringe maps,” Pohl told the commissioners March 12 when explaining problems from years past. “And what I understand is that things that were in the floodway were permitted as though they Page 6 • Pacific City SUN • March 21, 2014

were in the flood fringe.” The floodway study that will soon be performed is part of the Corrective Action Plan submitted by the county in its attempt to get back in FEMA’s good graces. The county must also re-create missing elevation certificates (which show how high a structure is above the BFE); train staff; and make changes in administration and the flood-hazard ordinance. The county will also take enforcement actions on unpermitted work that FEMA turned up. Pohl said FEMA has left building-permit issuance to the county’s discretion, but with all the unknowns and with the stakes so high for both financial and safety reasons, he would want FEMA to give its written OK to any such plans in the affected areas. “Any mistake will have countywide implications,” he told the Sun. FEMA is not requiring a floodway analysis in the central portion of the county, which had less development over the years than the northern and southern areas. “I think we’re talking issues of severity here,” Pohl said at the March 19 commissioners’ workshop. Pohl said in an interview before the workshop that it would be possible for a property owner to provide a floodway analysis that would clear the way for a permit, but the cost would be prohibitive. “This caught us as much by surprise as the public,” Commissioner Mark Labhart said of FEMA’s actions in an interview before the March 19 meeting. “We didn’t realize the extent of what they were asking us to do and we didn’t realize the impacts that this could have on property owners.” The risks of issuing permits now are that owners and the county could face liability, including the possibilities of not getting flood insurance or having to move buildings, he said. “This is the last thing we wanted to do,” Baertlein said after the meeting. Too many county assets are at risk if officials don’t comply with FEMA, he said, adding that his experience with such government actions is that “nothing goes fast.” “If we keep issuing permits,” he said, “it’s like kicking a hornets’ nest.” Pacific City resident Dave Yamamoto, who is running against Josi in the May election, said the situation has “great potential to affect” Pacific City’s downtown, with issues for people wanting to build and for realestate brokers. “Any buyer will want to know with some certainty what flood rates will be,” he said. “This could throw real estate in downtown into a tizzy.” County Counsel Bill Sargent, in a March 18 interview, was reluctant to speculate whether the county could face liability from people who have commenced development projects and are now affected by the moratorium, but said: “If we permit people from here on to build, we could have a problem for allowing them to build.” Lake Oswego attorney Andrew Stamp is representing developer Mike Hanks, whose company bought two Resort Drive lots just east of the Ferry Street bridge with plans to build homes. Permits have not been issued, he wrote in an email to Pohl, while his client is paying between $3,000 and $4,000 a month in interest on construction loans. Stamp referred to the FEMA requirements as “kind of silly” in a March 19 interview, given the floodplain’s width. “There’s nothing to report on actions we’re going to take, if any,” he said. Taylor, principal broker at Kiwanda Coastal Properties and past president of the Tillamook Board of Realtors, said the action spurred by FEMA is “draconian.” The moratorium “just absolutely tears apart anything on the river,” she said in a March 18 interview. Buyers always look at older homes with the idea of remodeling, she said, and only “very limited” changes would be allowed. “Pacific City has not had exactly a banner year in real estate,” she said. “This has just given us another blow.” Josi, when asked whether the county was on the right track with the moratorium, said: “We really don’t have any other alternative.”

Each fourth grader receives an individually packaged 12- to 18-inch evergreen tree seedling packaged by workers with disabilities. Officials say that tree planting is even more important than ever as they take carbon dioxide (CO2) out of the atmosphere and clean the air we breathe. Planting trees is a simple, inexpensive and easy way to improve the community.

“Service Even After The Sale”

Arbor Day will be celebrated on the first week of April, an occasion that will herald the participation of more than 310 Tillamook County fourth-grade students who will roll up their sleeves and plant a tree. The kids will become members of Fourth Grade Foresters. The project’s goal is to help revitalize a remarkable idea — observation of Arbor Day in America’s schools. Fourth graders at East Elementary, fourth and fifth graders from Garibaldi Elementary, third- and fourth-grade students from Neskowin Valley School, fourth and fifth graders at Nestucca Valley Elementary school, and Tillamook Adventist School in Tillamook County will receive trees to take home and plant. “We are helping these students become stewards of their community by showing them that they can make a difference by simply planting and caring for a tree,” said Ray Monroe of the Tillamook County Soil and Water Conservation District. “This project is made possible because community business people

“HEART’S DESIRE: A CELEBRATION OF CHOCOLATE, WINE AND ART,” attracted approximately 150 revelers during the rescheduled event. The event was postponed from its original Feb. 8 date to March 15 due to wintry weather. Though event director Kim Cavatorta doesn’t have final numbers yet, she told the Sun that she expects the fundraiser for the Community Arts Project to net about $9,000 — good enough for half of the program’s expenses.

The Pacific City Dorymens Association is requesting that the U. S. Coast Guard re-instate the whistle on the buoy at Cape Kiwanda — but in a new location farther from shore and where Haystack Rock will tend to buffer the sound. “The new location is similar to pre-1992 when we did have a whistle buoy and when the sound didn’t disturb onshore residents,” said Association co-chairs Craig Wenrick and Paul Hanneman. “The current bell installation is not an adequate aid to navigation,” they said. “The sound is weak and custom-

arily interrupted. For the safety of the dory fleet and the many new types of watercraft now operating from the Cape, we need an audible and consistent aid to mariners, and we believe locating the buoy to the new location will resolve the issue.” Wenrick and Hanneman said they were acting on the advice of their Board and opinions expressed by several hundred members, including a petition signed by marine vessel operators from the central Oregon Coast. “In poor visibility conditions, mariners rely on the sound for their safety,” they said.

Seeking Cetaceans

CAPE KIWANDA will be one of 24 spots between Cape Disappointment and Crescent City, Calif. that will host cetacean seekers during Oregon State Parks Spring Whale Watch Week, March 22-29. At each of the 24 sites up and down the Oregon Coast, volunteers will be on hand from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. to point the ways to the wandering whales. Each spring, 18,000 migrating gray whales make their way to Alaska’s Bering Sea. Whale watchers access the Pacific City overlook by traversing the dune and making their way towards the headland that looks over the waters of the Pacific Ocean. Last spring, 693 visitors spotted 40 whales during the annual spring break Whale Watching Week. A total of 15,504 visitors caught sight of 3,253 breeching and spouting whales up and down the coast during the spring 2013 event. Though the whales are more spread out during spring migration, they are usually closer to shore and most are between one-half and three miles from the coastline. Good spotting technique starts with scanning with your eyes. It’s then that a set of binoculars come in handy. For more information, visit www.whalespoken.org.

this threat and giving back to Oregon’s beaches,” added Irby. Since the first coast-wide Oregon beach cleanup in 1984, more than 220,000 SOLVE volunteers have removed an estimated 2.8 million pounds of debris from the coast, equaling the weight of three Boeing 747 jumbo jets. Without the tradition of these twice-annual beach cleanups, SOLVE officials say the impact on wildlife and human health would be much greater. “I have seen first-hand many times the power of a community uniting through involvement,” exclaimed Mark Saelens, SOLVE Zone Captain for the Lincoln City beach cleanups. “The real tangible change is right here in our own communities and we can all make a difference working together.” Residents are encouraged to be a part of the solution by volunteering at the SOLVE Spring Oregon Beach Cleanup. Sign up to volunteer at solveoregon. org or by calling 503-844-9571.

Polishing Up the Coastline Thousands of Oregonians will mobilize across the state on Saturday, March 22 to scour more than 100 miles of beaches, cleaning up debris washed in from winter storms. From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., SOLVE welcomes volunteers of all ages to join together in clearing the entire Oregon Coast of trash, an effort they say benefits people and wildlife alike. Amongst the more than 40 sites up and down the coast are four sites in South Tillamook County: Wi-Ne-Ma Wayside Cleanup, 43405 Hwy 101, Neskowin; Neskowin Trading Company, 48880 Hwy 101 S.

But SOLVE says everyone has a role they can play in helping. “Last year, over 4,000 volunteers removed nearly 28 tons of debris. That’s equivalent to about five orca whales,” said Joy Irby, program coordinator of SOLVE. Discarded items, like cigarette butts and tiny bits of plastic flow into our rivers and streams to the Pacific Ocean where they can be toxic to marine life. “By helping to remove litter, you are taking an active role in minimizing

Together, they perfected an artistic recipe based on trust and understanding, two elements they have cultivated as they have built an artistic relationship that Courtesy photo enables them to “work on the same surface simultaneously, constantly pulling from and appreciating the marks the other one has left behind.” With Hagenson’s love for line and intense color and Larson’s knack for subtle, yet powerful abstract shape, the duo has combined to create a collection of work best described as “abstract landscapes with simple figures fading in and out of color blocks and complimented with mechanical anatomy.” For more information on the show, visit Oarhouse Bar & Grill at 34455 Brooten Road, Pacific City or call 503-965-6001.

T

here are many combinations that work and work well. But few tickle the taste buds the way barbecue and a sip of syrah can. And that’s the driving force behind Sean and Chenin Carlton’s Ribcage Smokery. Sean says that the opening of the Ribcage in 2012 was the culmination of what the couple had long believed — the “meatiness” of syrah is the perfect combination for barbecue. Hence the marriage of Twist Wine Co., which the couple has operated since 2008 and the Ribcage, which features Sean’s own dry rub concoctions. Though he says it’s true that a lot of restaurants showcase food and wine together, the Ribcage ups the ante. “The way I do barbecue is what I call ‘savor the flavor,’” says Sean. “There’s a special dry rub that I’ve created that’s designed to enhance the flavor of the meat but not overpower it, and then I created my own barbecue sauce to compliment the flavors in the meat so that all three of those things will compliment each other without any one thing being too dominant.” But the complete meal experience doesn’t stop there, not when they have Twist’s own syrah to add to the mix. “All three of those things were done in conjunction with the way that we like to make syrah,” says Sean. “Really, you’re talking about sort of a multilayered approach where everything is done by itself but everything was created all at the same time to be complimentary flavors.” The flavors Sean has created in this match made in heaven harken back to his days on the farm when he had access to beef, pork and lamb. “While I was learning to smoke I crated my own dry rub, created my own barbecue sauce and created my own style of smoking, (and identified) which wood (I) use to compliment all the flavors in the syrah as well as all of the flavors together. It’s kind of this overall (taste) package.” As a new twist — pun not intended — the Carltons have also begun offering $10 platters on their menu, which include baked beans, corn bread

PLATTERS APLENTY AND PIZZA, TOO! The Ribcage Smokery offers a collection of tasty barbecue including brisket, prime rib, baby back ribs and tri-tip steak. Rueben sandwiches are also a favorite. Operated by Sean (pictured above) and Chenin Carlton in tandem with Twist Wine Co., food is available at neighboring Twist from Thursday through Sunday while dining is open in the Ribcage on Friday and Saturday. The dynamic duo of syrah and barbecue is the pair of establishments’ hallmark. For more information, call 503-483-1RIB. and cole slaw. Previously all food was served ala carte. They have also added pizzas that boast of meat from their smoker, as well as making two of their most popular choices — briskets and Rueben sandwiches — available all four days they are open. Other favorites include prime rib, baby back ribs and tri-tip steak. Though diners can always order the Ribcage’s menu at Twist, Thursday through Sunday, the Ribcage itself is seating diners on Friday and Saturday as well. Hours are Thursday and Sunday, noon-7 p.m., and Friday and Saturday noon-9 p.m. for both the Ribcage and Twist Wine Co. Twist is also open on Wednesday, 3-7 p.m. and will

be open all week during spring break, March 23-29. The Ribcage is also in the planning stages for bottling a special Ribcage barbecue kit, which will include their special glazing sauce, their barbecue sauce, their dry rub and a printed instruction booklet. Expected to be available at the restaurant in two months, Sean says the kit is designed to make it possible for people to replicate that unique Ribcage taste at home on their own smokers. Ribcage Smokery, Twist Wine Co. and the Carlton’s gift store, Reversal Apparel are all located at 6425 Pacific Ave, Pacific City. For more information on the Ribcage, call 503-483-1RIB.

ON THE PORCH Alma Perkins and Alice Magarrell are pictured with Robert Magarrell, who is by the entrance. Virgil is in the front yard. Joe and Ross Magarrell are on the side yard. This hotel was located behind and south of the Grateful Bread and was later called the Edmunds Hotel.

The Birth of a Town My Memories of Pacific City, Woods and Kiwanda “In the late part of 1893 my father, R.C. (Robert Clifford) Magarrell, became interested in Ocean Park (now Pacific City). Later to be know as Malaney’s addition to Ocean Park. Two men, Albert Malaney and his brother John, plotted a town site which was named Ocean Park. It was just across the river from Woods. That winter a big flood put the town site under four to six feet of water so they decided to move the town further south to the present site of Pacific City. It was at that time called Malaney’s addition to Ocean Park. Two new towns had been started with the name Ocean Park. One in Oregon and one in Washington, causing much confusion, so the one in Oregon became Pacific City. “It was then that my father, R.C. Magarrell, got involved in furnishing money to purchase the land for the new town. The land was obtained from John R. Malaney, father of Albert and John Jr. It was this move that set off the saying, “that they moved the town on a wheel barrow.” All they had to do was move the blue prints, deeds etc. “We moved to Pacific City in 1894; we had to wait for a house to be built. The first house to be built was for Mr. Porter, a blacksmith. It was a fine house but it burned to the ground three days after it was finished. The second house built is the one we lived in. In early 1895, the Malaney brothers and my father built a hotel known as the Sea View House, which later became the Edmund’s Hotel. “When we first came, Woods was quite a lively town, nearly as big as Tillamook was at this time. Steamers came up the Nestucca River with supplies. Some of the boats I remember (were) the Harrison, Rosa, Olson, Miami, Petril and later the Della and Jerald C. Larger vessels, like the Anita, Patsy and Oshkosh, came with supplies for the salmon cannery on the bay and to take out the canned salmon. “Pacific City in 1894 to 1910 was a very popular summer resort. People came from Salem, McMinnville and Sheridan and would stay all summer. But after the automobile, about 1910, things began to go

down and only pick up years later. “On the river and at the Cape, I used to fish two or three nets and have caught two tons of salmon in a single night. The price of salmon them days was: Chinook 35 cents each (any size); Silversides 12 1/2 cents each (any size) and Chums 5 cents each. There was about 300 fishermen on the Nestucca at this time. They came from all over during the season. “There is quite a lot to talk about these dories. The fact remains that they used the same thing on the river and the bay. The square-stern type was used for setting nets for a one-man boat. The double ended ones were used on the bay as a drift net boat with two men. These boats were 18- to 20-feet long with about a five-foot beam and 20 inches deep. They were built of (1- x 12-foot) clear spruce with plenty of flare and well ribbed with bottoms fore and aft and would easily carry a ton or more. Fish boxes were much the same as they are now. Most had a short deck forward and some had a tent over the forward end for shelter. Most nets were about 100 fathoms, 18 meshes deep. Mesh for Chinook was eight to nine inches, for Silversides and Chums seven inches. Sometimes, these boats (were) drug across the sand spit and taken to the cape for ocean fishing. I, myself, used a horse and dolly. As a young man, I built so many of these boats, I have forgotten how many. Labor those days would cost about $7.50-$10 — maybe $12.50. You could buy one for $20 to $30 all painted and ready to go. Also, many of these boats were used for renting to campers, but in most cases rentals were 16-feet long.” EDITOR’S NOTE: This column is courtesy of a 1968 interview with Virgil Magarell found in the archives of Tillamook County Pioneer Museum.

‘Cats open season with home loss By DEE MOORE for the Sun

B

aseball season is here and the Bobcats baseball team is hitting the field looking for experience. Though the young team lost the first two nonleague games of the season, the athletes are gaining invaluable experience. The Bobats lost 4-2 to Warrenton at home on Monday, March 17 and then traveled to Sheridan on Wednesday, March 19, where they came up short, as well, 21-4. “We’re real young,” said head coach Jim Kiser. “(The) first couple of games I started two freshmen and three sophomores.” Kiser was pleased with the team’s play against Warrenton. Senior Jacob Menafee pitched the first half of the game, and then Kiser put in two pitchers who hadn’t pitched since their Little League days. “They showed a lot of heart. It was nice to see the fight and battle. I was happy considering how young we are.” But the team’s youth caught up with them in Sheridan where their play lacked enthusiasm. “They kind of learned a lesson, when they got off the bus in Sheridan it was damp; raining and cold. They didn’t focus and power through. After the game, I told them this is Oregon baseball,” he said adding that most of the season is going to be played in conditions like these.

SENIOR JACOB MENAFEE pitches against Warrenton during Nestucca’s home opener. The Bobcats dropped the game, 4-2. He expects that the team will improve with practice and playing time. “The team needs to work on its batting offensively,” the coach said noting that this kind of experience can only be gained through game play. “(You) can’t simulate the kind of pitches that come with a real game — to do that would cause the pitchers to throw their arms out,” he said. Kiser has only two returning

‘Perfect’ team starts off slow By DEE MOORE for the Sun

T

he Lady Bobcats softball team is young and inexperienced, but don’t discount them yet, because according to their coach, Jeff Schiewe, they are the perfect team. The team started the season with a loss at Sheridan 12-2 on Thursday, March 19. This was to be expected with only four players from last year’s team, but the team played well. “We are young. We are inexperienced,” Schiewe said. “We have a few first year players and yesterday was their first game. Offensively we are ahead of our defense. We only struck out once. Everybody contributed, it was really cool.” “Catcher Sunny McCall threw out two who were trying to steal, she is really good. Both pitchers, Kycie Richwine and Emily Menefee, pitched half the game and did a really nice job. The defense needs to support them by decreasing out errors,” he said. There are 13 players on this year’s team, which Schiewe describes as “just about perfect.” Returning this season is junior pitcher, Kycie Richwine; junior catcher, Sunny McCall; at first base and also pitching is senior Emily Menefee and at short stop and playing second base as well is junior Monica Chatelain. New to the team are seniors Jessica Ponce and Shanna Cox; sophomores Thelma Chavarin and Jenni Green; junior Perla Gracia and freshmen Tea Chantelain, Morgan Kirkpatrick, Suzannah Floyd and McKenize Whitaker. “Personality wise this is the perfect team. They support each other and are very positive,” the coach said. The team has much to learn according to the coach. He considers overall knowledge of the situations that arise in a softball game as their greatest weakness. “Our goal is to educate the girls on the game. They are learning really fast, and we hope to get enough wins to get to the league playoffs and then battle through those to get to state,” Scheiwe said. The team will host the Willamina Lady Bulldogs at 4:30 p.m. Friday, March 21. Page 18 • Pacific City SUN • March 21, 2014

athletes who are lending their invaluable experience and leadership to the rest of the team: senior shortstop Max Kirkendall and Menafee. Many of this year’s athletes have never played the game before while several haven’t played in years. His bench isn’t very deep either. The coach has 13 athletes total. “They are young guys learning on the fly right now,” Kiser said.

Track team begins run at another state berth By DEE MOORE for the Sun The Nestucca track team is aiming for state again this year, and it is highly likely that these decorated athletes will be sporting more trophies and ribbons soon. According to John Elder, track coach and high school athletic director, all of last year’s state champions are returning and joining them is a crop of new athletes. “We have a good turnout this year; 41 total, 21 boys and 20 girls,” Elder said. “We have all our kids who went to state last year returning.” Returning this year is junior Kycie Richwine who won second at state in the 100-meter hurdles; junior Monica Chatelain who placed ninth in javelin; senior Trisha Hopkins who placed ninth in shot put; junior Courtney Ahn who placed sixth in the 300 meter; junior Drace Moeller who won second in shot put; Brett Elder who placed third in discus, fourth in shot put and sixth in javelin; senior Austin McKillip who placed sixth in the triple jump and fifth in pole vault and sophomore Guillermo Pimienta, who placed 10th in the high jump. “We hope to get those athletes plus more back to state and try to top our medal count from last year,” Elder said. An ambitious plan since the team won eight state medals last season. “The boys team won the district meet title last year and we would like to try to repeat and have the girls win, too,” he added. According to Elder, the team is shaping up well. He expects that many of the athletes will be setting new personal bests and notes that new members are adding additional strength. These include thrower Mia Dorsey; Brad Shaw who runs the 800, Payton Hopkins in the 300, Tea Chatelain in the 400, high jumper McKenzie Whitaker; hurdler Cody Kirkendall and jumper Willow Wood. This season’s coaching staff includes Iona Wakefield, who will coach sprints and relays and Gordon Whitehead coaching distance runners. The team will be competing in one home meet and 10 away meets during the season. The first meet was held Thursday, March 20, in Sheridan. Results were not available at press time.


FISHING&OUTDOORS

Reelin’ In Steelies By PAT GEFRE for the Sun

F

inally! We finally caught a break in the weather and the river conditions followed suit. Fishermen have been fishing for steelhead in the Nestucca River every day since March 12. I’m not saying I prefer it this way, but it has been worth the wait. Fishing for winter steelhead in the Nestucca has been just short of terrific! On March 12 and 13, the river was still fairly high and off color, but that didn’t seemed to deter winter steelies from biting or fishermen from plying their trade. And it has just gotten better as river conditions have improved. March is right smack in the middle of the best part of the fishing season, and it just so happens that it’s also the month when the largest winter steelhead return to the Nestucca drainage. Fishermen have recorded a few 20-plus pounders so far this month. That’s quite a fish when you consider the average Nestucca steelhead will run between eight and 12 pounds. I know I have mentioned this before, but it’s worth mentioning again: March fish are affectionately known as March footballs in large part due to their unique bulging round shape, sometimes tipping the scales at up to 30 pounds. Because so many weeks of high water have passed, winter steelhead are spread out all through the river from high to low. There are more hatchery fin-clipped steelhead in the lower river because of the way ODFW releases them. The winter run smoltz are released at four points, the mouth of Three Rivers, Farmer Creek, First Bridge, and Bays Creek. Several years ago, all fin-clipped steelhead were released at Bays Creek between Sixth Bridge and 5 1/2 boat launches. For the last four years, the release was split up and put lower into the system. This was done to keep hatchery fish downstream and further away from the spawning grounds of, so called, wild steelhead. I don’t for one minute believe that hatchery fish harm native fish — we have a more than 80-year history of hatchery fish that were never fin-clipped and some would argue that native fish are hatchery hybrids and probably have saved native fish from extinction. Unless you have a native fish from 100 years ago and could genetically test it, how can anyone possibly prove what gene pool a particular fish comes from? Even though I think there is no credible science to prove the results, this does keep the native fisheries society

folks a little quieter. ODFW seems to be more in tune and inclined to kow tow to the squeaky wheel than most of the rest of us fishermen. Anyway, I digress, I’m off point and my original point was going to be that if you wish to catch and retain fin-clipped hatchery steelhead, there are more of them available in the lower river from Fourth Bridge to Cloverdale than in the upper river where mostly you will find unclipped steelhead. ODFW stocked all the lakes around the area with rainbow trout earlier this week. It should be pretty darn good fishing at Hebo and Town and South Lakes. Worms or single eggs under a bobber produce as well as any method with bobber fishing being one of the easier methods for youngsters to fish. Power Bait off the bottom works well, and, for those that can’t sit around watching a bobber, pitching a spinner is a great way to be more active and catch fish. Hebo Lake is especially kid friendly with a trail around the lake and five easy to get to fishing docks to fish from.  ODFW is changing the new Multi Species long-term plan again. The last draft called for the Nestucca to get an increased number of fin-clipped summer steelhead. It used to be that we received 100,000 smoltz. A couple of years ago, they reduced that to 75,000. The new plan called for an increase back to the 100,000 we used to get. To accomplish this, ODFW was going to take summer steelhead off the Wilson and give them to the Nestucca — bringing our fishery back to 100,000 released. The Tillamook anglers had a hissy, rightfully so, now ODFW is actually planning to reduce the Nestucca down to 50,000 fish and give the other 50,000 to the Wilson. Why don’t they just close up shop and go home? It just doesn’t seem like ODFW wants any fisheries of hatchery fish to prosper. Reducing the Nestucca to 50,000 fish with an average return of 1 to 1.5 percent means you might just as well kiss the summer fishery for steelhead on the Nestucca good bye! Instead of putting paltry numbers in both rivers why don’t they do what’s right and put enough numbers — 100,000, in both rivers — to make it a fishery. What will eventually happen is no one will bother to fish either one, well, because why? The chances of catching anything will be slim, then ODFW can say that it is an under-used fishery and make the case to eliminate it all together. It’s our river — if no one speaks out we will deserve what we end up with. There is a comment period and ODFW says they are listening. Let’s see if that is true.
