TALKBACK A Mutual Solution? To the Editor: (This is regarding your) April 18, 2014, edition of the Pacific City Sun, where you published (an) article entitled “A Better Buoy?” Thank you for writing this article and affording the opportunity to other citizens (permanent residents, part time residents, frequent visitors, casual visitors) to voice their point of view. The safety of the fishermen, be it commercial or recreational, is, as it should be, the primary focus and purpose of this equipment. This is a dangerous occupation/sport and most people are well aware of the hazards the ocean presents. If the bell buoy is not meeting this criteria, then it should be replaced. However, the replacement should not create a problem for some citizens while solving a different problem for another group of citizens. The ocean dangers are visible and obvious to people who have had even the remotest exposure to the ocean. However, the negative impact on quality of life is not so visible, but it can be equally as troublesome. This is not a good guy, bad guy thing. This is an important issue for all of the community that needs a mutually beneficial solution. With that in mind, the US Coast Guard should be asked to come up with a fix that will be mutually beneficial to all. The technology the US Naval Military has available as evidenced in assisting with the two recent maritime tragedies — Flight MH370 and the South Korean cruise ship — is awe inspiring and it seems that the USCG should at least have a speck of that technology to satisfy this problem. As the article states, changes to mariner aides can be requested by mariners, and rightly so; however, the manner of change should be decided by the responsible agency. According to the USCG website whistle buoys have recently been removed from the waters of two nearby coastal communities. When solving a problem the words “speculate” and “possible” are usually not conducive to a satisfactory solution. I suggest that the onus be put on the USCG, the responsible professional agency, to solve this problem rather than citizens trying to solve this problem for them. I encourage the citizens of this

community to use this opportunity to make their position on this matter heard. There is now an email address (d13-PF-LNM@uscg.mil) and a name provided in this article that people can use in doing that. There is also a tentative due date of which to be aware (May 10). Regardless of the outcome, I appreciate the opportunity to state my views. Richard Potempa Pacific City

Accolades for Josi To the Editor: What has Tim Josi done to deserve reelection? I first met Tim Josi about 15 years ago when I was president of the Pacific City Chamber of Commerce, and he was a new County Commissioner for Tillamook County. I have always had great reservations about anybody who is a “politician.”  I was pleasantly surprised when I found Tim to be always available to address any issue, always approaching each issue by understanding the views of all parties involved and then working tirelessly to find solutions that are in the best interest of everyone. What has he done?  Unlike Hillary, there is much that can be said about what he has accomplished: From saving Whalen Island being developed and endangering the start of the food chain that is the Whalen Island estuary (the third largest on the Oregon coast), to supporting renewable forest practices that protect both the logging industry and the preservation of the forests, to supporting education for our children, to providing health care services for those who cannot afford their own, the establishment of the Tillamook Reserve Fund, taking money from good years and saving it for lean years so that Tillamook County operations remain stable year in and year out, to working long hours to build Tillamook County into the best place it can possibly be to live.  Space keeps me from listing all of his many fine qualities, but someday I think he should be our next Governor.   Roger Tracey Beaver, Ore.

Q

uestions about a buildingpermit moratorium were asked and answered April 19, when about five dozen area residents met with a county and state official at Pacific Coast Bible Church. The occasion was a public meeting of the Pacific City-Woods Citizens Advisory Committee. The officials on hand were Bryan Pohl, director of the Tillamook County Community Development Department, which issues building permits; and Christine Shirley, National Flood Insurance Program coordinator for the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development. Also present but subject to few questions was Dan Christenson, a senior hydraulics engineer with West Consultants, the company whose Portland office is performing studies of the Nestucca and Nehalem river floodways in a move needed to end the moratorium. The moratorium in the Pacific City and Nehalem areas, which began in early March and likely will be formalized by the Tillamook County commissioners on May 7, could still have about a year remaining. As of April 30, a snag in getting measurements of the Nestucca River’s underwater terrain was being addressed, but the moratorium’s overall timetable has not required adjustment. The county’s moratorium follows the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s finding that building permits were incorrectly issued in the two rivers’ floodways for decades, possibly altering peak water levels during floods. The river studies will determine those levels. FEMA operates the National Flood Insurance Program, which provides the flood insurance that is required by many mortgages. FEMA’s findings have already cost Tillamook County property owners a 20 percent discount on flood insurance. The moratorium is being imposed to prevent even more drastic consequences countywide while the new river studies go through a bureaucratic process and new flood maps are created and accepted. The 90-minute meeting on April 19 bounced from topic to topic. For clarity, it is presented here in a question-andanswer format, with questions in bold. Is my property affected by the moratorium?

BRYAN POHL, director of the Tillamook County Community Development Department, addresses Pacific City residents at an April 19 meeting at Pacific Coast Bible Church as he shows a map of areas affected by a building-permit moratorium. If you received a notification letter sent by the county’s Community Development Department on April 7, at least part of your property is in the floodway or floodplain and is subject to the moratorium. “In this area I think we had about 580 pieces of mail that went out,” Pohl said. What activities are barred by the moratorium? New buildings, alterations costing more than 50 percent of a building’s market value, and alterations that would increase a structure’s square footage will not be permitted. Under FEMA standards, fences, grading and accessory structures also are to be included in the moratorium. What activities will be permitted during the moratorium? “Non-substantial” alterations are allowed, meaning projects that cost less than 50 percent of a building’s market value and that do not add square footage. Routine maintenance is also allowed: “If you want to re-roof your house, or if you want to change siding, things like that, we can still permit all that stuff,” Pohl said. What does the moratorium area include?

In Pacific City, the moratorium affects the floodway and adjacent floodplain along a three-mile length of the Nestucca River, extending upstream from its confluence with Nestucca Bay. The affected area varies in width, depending on land elevation, and includes much low-lying ground in Pacific City. “Some of the things that have kind of floated around: Anyone within three miles of the river is subject to this. That’s not true,” Pohl said, specifying that the moratorium only affects the floodway and floodplain. What is the difference between a floodway and a floodplain? “Basically, the floodway is the area that would normally flood. Almost every year you will see a flood in this area,” Pohl said. A floodplain spreads outward from the edges of a floodway. A floodplain is the area that has a 1 percent chance of flooding in any given year. In the event of a flood, a floodplain typically will not see the velocity of flowing water seen in the floodway. Development in a floodway requires a “no-rise” certification, showing that the development will not displace or restrict water in a way that would

NEWS&COMMUNITY worsen flooding in the surrounding floodplain. That “no-rise” certification is the crucial step that was skipped during permitting over previous decades, FEMA contends. What is a 100-year flood? A “100-year-flood” is a misleading term, Pohl said. The concept refers to a flood level that has a 1 percent chance of occurring in any given year, and there is no timetable. “Please forget the 100-year floodplain. You could have five 100-year floods in a row,” he said. “You could have 10 of them within the same year. It is the 1 percent chance of flooding area.” What are the issues with base flood elevation (BFE)? Base flood elevation, or BFE, is the level that floodwaters have a 1 percent chance of reaching in any given year. The area covered by water at the BFE level is the area that defines a floodplain. There is no way to know Pacific City’s actual BFE without a study, FEMA contends, because of the decades of floodway development that failed to provide the “no-rise” analyses. The level that has long been considered the BFE was set in 1978. Tillamook County has required a three-foot “freeboard” for years when issuing building permits — meaning that a structure’s first floor must be three feet above the level considered the BFE. That “freeboard” could be a “saving grace” for structures that followed the rule, Pohl said, because even if the river studies show that the BFE has risen, it’s unlikely to have risen three feet. Could the yearlong moratorium be shortened? If the new river studies result in more restrictive data than was used in the past and FEMA accepts the data, it might be possible to issue permits earlier than anticipated, Pohl said. However, Shirley noted: “There’s always a possibility that things will take longer.” Will there be enforcement actions? FEMA “may force our hand” to demand changes at more than 100 properties with issues such as unauthorized improvements or a lack of proper flood venting, Pohl said. “Maybe you built your house on stilts and everything was OK and compliant, but then you came through and you did a room addition down under the stilts,” he said. “They documented a lot of cases like that.” Structures in existence before the first flood maps in 1978 are “grandfathered into compliance,” Shirley said. But Pohl noted that subsequent noncompliant alterations to those structures would not be grandfathered. Structures that were compliant with county standards at the time they were built will not have to be updated, Pohl said. “What I would tell you, and I don’t know that this will happen, but if there is some dramatic increase in base flood elevation, there could be properties that were compliant at the time they were built that are not compliant now, and that may have insurance ramifications,” he said. What if you have a permit but haven’t started work? “We need to talk,” Pohl told a woman who asked that question. What if you have paid for a permit and want an extension or refund? “If you need an extension, or if you want to just ask for a refund … give me a call,” Pohl said. “We’ll meet, we’ll talk, I will try my best to help you in that

situation.” What if you have already started construction on an unfinished project? A project that met county rules at the time of permit issuance could be OK due to the “freeboard” requirement, Pohl said, while acknowledging that there are unknowns. “I would probably encourage a person to talk to us and follow this very closely,” he said. Will property taxes be adjusted? “We’re monitoring the situation, and we’ll make any adjustments if appropriate,” said Denise Vandecoevering, Tillamook County assessor and tax collector, in a phone interview after the meeting. Vandecoevering noted that values for taxes were set on Jan. 1, two months before the moratorium became an issue. Statements based on those Jan. 1 values will be issued in October for payment in November, and any property owner can contact her office after statements are issued to present evidence contesting the value. If no agreement is reached, an appeal can be filed before the end of the year to schedule a Board of Property Tax Appeals hearing. Will the lost 20 percent discount on flood insurance be reinstated or refunded? If the county can return to the FEMA “gold standard” called the Community Rating System — a status that was lost in connection with FEMA’s recent findings — the discount would be available going forward, but there will be no refunds for the time that the county falls short of that standard. Is the financial hit on flood-insurance premiums limited to the lost 20 percent discount? There is additional bad news for the owners of commercial buildings and “non-primary residences,” meaning rentals and homes where the owners live less than half the year. Unconnected with the current FEMA action, changes in the law mandate that insurance rates on those structures will increase 25 percent per year as they march toward full actuarial rates, which are tied to a property’s certified elevation. Those increases are in addition to the loss of the 20 percent discount, which occurred in December 2013. Once FEMA accepts the new flood maps, can they be challenged? “FEMA has some very specific guidelines for how you challenge the new flood maps,” Shirley said. A property owner would hire a surveyor and submit information to FEMA, and if the agency agrees with changes, it would grant what is called a letter of map amendment, she said. Would dredging the Nestucca River solve the problem? Dredging the river is so unlikely that it’s not a factor. “I think that there are some pretty serious environmental hurdles to dredging the river … the chances of it actually being done are slim to none,” Pohl said. Shirley added: “The volume of water through here would mean that you’d have to do some really serious dredging to make an appreciable difference.” For more information on the county-wide moratorium, call Bryan Pohl at 503-842-3408, extension 3123, or Christine Shirley at 503-373-0050, extension 250.

Landing an Area for the Community BLM seeks public comment on environmental assessment for proposed Recreation &Public Purposes lease with PCJWSA The Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comments on an Environmental Assessment and unsigned “Finding of No Significant Impact” for a proposal to issue Pacific City Joint Water-Sanitary Authority a Recreation and Public Purposes Lease, a Communication Site Lease, and amend a Right of Way Grant. Comments for the EA, which is available for review at either BLM’s Tillamook Field office or online at www.blm.gov/or/districts/ salem/plans, are due by May 30 and can be mailed to Karen Schank, BLM Tillamook Field Office, 4610 Third Street, Tillamook, Oregon 97141. Feedback will also be accepted via email, blm_or_sa_tillamook_mail@blm.gov, or by fax, 503-815-1107. Located on BLM-administered lands located east of Cape Kiwanda in Pacific City, the 77.75-acre project area has long been targeted by PCJWSA as they have sought to preserve the area for community use and at the same time, reserve a portion for future infrastructure needs. The new leases and grant amendment would allow the construction of hiking trails, an emergency evacuation area with shelter and access road for PCJWSA’s continued operations, a communication tower for remote operations of treatment facilities, and fencing around existing wellheads. “We’re glad it’s to the point of public comment,” said PCJWSA manager Tony Owen. “We’d like to have as many positive comments as pos-

sible.” Owen added that he encourages the public to read the EA and noted that without an R&PP lease such as this, it was highly likely that the property could be sold to a developer, a use that he believes isn’t in the public’s best interest. He added it’s a belief that BLM shares and praised their spirit of cooperation. “BLM has been very supportive,” said Owen. “They feel they don’t want to see it developed. They feel it’s best use is as a community asset.” Key points supporting its unsigned finding of “no significant impact” include an assertion that the projects design features will “reduce the risk of effects to affected resources.” Additionally, the BLM report states that the project will have minimal effect to both wildlife and habitat, noting that a planned trail will be designed and located as to “reduce potential impacts to botanical species.” In the case of a low wildlife impact, the EA says the “parcel will generally retain its natural character and habitat condition” and that “design features have been incorporated to minimize impacts.” Following the public comment period, BLM will have 15 to 30 days to respond. Owen said, that if all goes well, he hopes to have a lease signed by late this summer. For more information, call Traci Meredith at 503-315-5991.

Remember the Heroes

Donations are being sought for Cloverdale’s Col. Reusser memorial

F

unds are being sought for the Col. Kenneth Reusser Memorial, a landmark that seeks to honor those that have attended Nestucca High School and later died in the line of duty in the U.S. military. The public has two ways they can help. They can send donations to: Tillamook County Pioneer Association, 2106 Second St., Tillamook, OR 97141, with a memo labeled “Nestucca Heroes” or they can purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win a machine embroidered towel set with a a patriotic bag. Tickets are $1 each of six for $5. and can be purchased at the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum or by calling organizer Kay Saddler. Funds received will be used to add an engraved granite slab to the memorial, which is located on the premises of the Shell Game in downtown Cloverdale. The engraved addition will list those killed in action or who died in the line of duty. Organizers hope to create a place in the community that will “express honor, respect, and even sorrow.” Saddler says it’s also a chance to show community pride. “We (want the community and visitors to know

that) we have not forgotten these brave soldiers who gave their lives defending our freedoms and protecting others,” she said. Though the project was originally an adopted project of the Nestucca Valley Ladies Auxiliary, VFW Post 9611, the effort is now a community-based effort as the Auxiliary’s charter was cancelled because it was associated with a disbanded VFW Post. On the list to be honored on the plaque are former Nestucca students Alfred Kreutz (class of 1935), John Collier (class of 1939), Charles Galloway (classof 1940), Clarice Bettis (class of 1952), Mike Earl (class of 1963), Michael Couch (class of 1968), Dale Sorensen (class of 1968) and Alan Carbaugh (class of 1977). The effort will culminate with a community dedication on Saturday, May 24.

Tim is working for us

County Commissioner Tim Josi Keeping our State Forests working for us in an environmentally and sustainable manner is now in jeopardy. Recently the State settled a lawsuit over the Marbled Murlette that shut down 90% of the Elliott State Forest in Coos County. State and private forests in our area are now in peril of also being shut down. Now the State is being threatened with additional litigation for not doing enough to protect Coho Salmon as they spawn and rear in our state forests. How can this be True? We have spent millions of dollars improving habitat on our state forests and the results are remarkable. We are seeing the largest returns since recordkeeping began in 1950. State forests were deeded to the state over seventy years ago by fifteen counties including Tillamook. The state agreed to manage these lands for a variety of purposes but primarily for timber production to benefit the fifteen Trust Counties. The counties were granted a share of timber sale receipts to fund county services, schools and districts such as recreation and transportation. Keeping our State Forests working for us is worth fighting for and I am in a position to make a difference. For the past thirteen years, I have been the chair of the Council of Forest Trust Lands Counties. Twice now we have successfully sued the state in an effort to protect our rights. We’re prepared to do so again if needed.

A day of play for five visitors to Pacific City turned tragic when, according to Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District training officer Jim Oeder, a sneaker wave reportedly caused James Michael Alejandro, 25, of Portland, to fall off a rope and into the ocean. The incident occurred on the northwest side of Cape Kiwanda on April 24. The call for help came out at approximately 3 p.m. According to the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office, which together with the U.S. Coast Guard were also on scene, Alejandro had been climbing on the north side of Cape Kiwanda with several other visitors. The Sheriff’s Office reported that during the climbing activity, Alejandro had connected a single rope line between two large rock sections and was attempting to walk the rope line above the water when he was struck by a large wave that swept him into the ocean. Alejandro was observed briefly in the water after falling but witnesses quickly lost sight of him. According to witnesses, Alejandro was not using additional safety lines or equipment during his attempt to traverse the single rope line above the water. The U.S. Coast Guard, because they had a helicopter in the area, were already surveying the scene when Nestucca fire rescue personnel arrived and assisted in the rescue effort. A vessel from US Coast Guard Station Tillamook Bay also was dispatched to the area to aid in the search as well as helicopters from Coast Guard Air Station Astoria

and North Bend. US Coast Guard and rescue personnel searched the area from the water and by air for several hours but failed to locate Alejandro. Both Nestucca Fire and the Coast Guard suspended their search at approximately 9 p.m. due to darkness. According to Oeder, the Coast Guard has suspended their search unless they receive further information, but Nestucca Fire and the Tillamook Co. Sheriff’s Office will continue to search along the beach line daily — most likely for a week from the incident. He said that together with family and friends, Alenjandro had climbed the Cape, traveled to the point and traversed down a path that leads to a small cove. It was there where they set up their climbing activity. “Areas such as Cape Kiwanda are a popular destination for visitors to our county, however, extreme caution should be exercised when climbing, hiking or playing near the ocean,” said Tillamook County Sheriff Andy Long. “Ocean currents along the Oregon Coast are strong and large waves are common and can take people by surprise. We encourage everyone to be cautious of the potential dangers while at the beach.” Oeder, too, stressed safety in the area. “We like having people come see the beach and everything we have here, but everybody needs to be safe in the areas they go into,” he said. Oeder said the incident marks the second person lost in that area of Cape Kiwanda in the last five years.

Library expands Seed Lending program Last year Tillamook County Library, in partnership with the OSU Extension office, Food Roots, and the Oregon Food Bank, started a Seed Lending Library at its main branch in Tillamook – a place where aspiring gardeners could “check out” packets of seeds and plant them at home with the idea of “returning” seeds from the vegetables or flowers grown to the library when they harvested them in the fall or winter. This year Tillamook County Libraries are expanding their reach and offering a Seed Lending Library at each of their

branch libraries. The Tillamook County Library website, www.tillamookplinkit.org also offers PDF files of many resources to help community members learn about seed saving and storage, including a handy Seed Library brochure. At press time, the Seed Libraries were running low at all branches and patrons are encouraged to visit the Food Roots office, 1906 Third St. Suite B in Tillamook, for more seeds. Call the library at 503-842-4792 for more information.

PCJWSA completes sewer repair Pacific City Joint WaterSanitary Authority completed the repair of a failed sewer force main, located on Woods Bridge, on April 25. The six-week project included replacing about 300 feet of line that started at PCJWSA’s Woods sewer lift station and stretched nearly the full length of Woods Bridge. Several valves were also replaced. Authority manager Tony

Owen said that prior to the repair, the entire affected section was packed with sand. During construction, PCJWSA maintained service by bringing in tanker trucks in both the morning and evening to haul sewage to the treatment plant. Owen said the total bill was approximately $42,000.

EVENTS&ACTIVITIES CAPE KIWANDA will be the finish-line destination for the expected 3,000 bike riders participating in the 24th annual Reach the Beach fundraiser for the American Lung Association of Oregon, Saturday, May 17. Riders will choose from four possible routes — distances range from a 28-mile trip from Grand Ronde to a 104-mile tour from Portland. Registration is $40, plus $100 in donations. Visit www.reachthebeach.org.

Pedaling with Passion Known as Oregon’s start to the cycling season, Reach the Beach to return to Pacific City on May 17 Photos by Tim Hirsch

T

hree thousand bicyclists will make their way from one of four starting points between Grande Ronde and Portland during the 24th annual Reach the Beach bicycle ride, which finishes at Cape Kiwanda on May 17. The event is the largest fundraiser of the year for American Lung Association of Oregon and its seven-state region, according to Brian Mayo, director of development for the ALAO. It also ranks as one of the ALA’s top fundraising events nationally. Registration is $40, plus an additional $100, which can either be a rider donation or come from fundraising efforts. Visit www.reachthebeach.org to register. All told — entry fees, fundraising, and merchandising included — Mayo hopes to raise $600,000 for this year’s ride. ALAO will use the proceeds to help fund lung disease research, advocacy work and health education. “It’s a great tradition that people take part in year after year,” Mayo said about the ride, which is known as the start of the cycling season in Oregon. At ride’s end, cyclists will be treated to a finish line party with a dinner provided by Pelican Pub & Brewery included in registration. Friends and family — or even just those coming down to cheer the riders on — can also join in the pub’s meal for $15.

The event will honor the top fundride from Newberg. Beginning in the raising cyclist with the Brian Reynolds wine region, the ride also passes orAward. Reynolds rode the event from chards, rolling farmland, and forest and 2001-2007 before losing his 15-year fight with chondrosacroma, a rare lung cancer for which there is no treatment. Because the cancer had metastasized, he had a lung removed following his first Reach the Beach and rode future ones with only one lung — in 2007 with the aid of oxygen. The winner of the Brian Reynolds Top Fundraiser Award will receive a pass to Cycle Oregon with tent and porter support, a plaque, and bib number 1 for next year’s event, together with free entry. The most popular of the four ride lengths is the 104-mile trek from Beaverton, Ore. About half of the riders choose to complete this distance.

And for beginning riders, the 28-mile trek starting at Grand Ronde fits the bill. Though the majority of ride participants are Oregonians, it also attracts a number of cyclists from the Seattle area and across the nation. Last year the field included riders from Maine and Hawaii. While relatively few from the Oregon Coast participate, some do take up the challenge. Count Dan Mason, pastor of Pacific Coast Bible Church, and Lincoln City resident Mitch Tingley, an elder at the Pacific City church, in that group. Mason said he relishes the challenge, but also the good that ALO does. “The biggest reason (I’m riding) is the personal challenge,” Mason says, “but it’s also going to be a social event,” noting that friends and family from Washington and Idaho were going to be joining him on the 80-mile ride from Newberg to Cape Kiwanda. “I really like the idea that this is one of the bigger community events in Pacific City,” he said. “When you think about it, you’re supporting lung cancer, getting good exercise, and you’ve got a great day of fellowship.” Further, for Mason, it won’t be just about riding with his small group of friends and family — not when there’s another 3,000 riders he’s sharing the road with. “I really do want to honor the Lord in this ride (through) the fellowship and encouragement of not only the guys we’re riding with, but the fellowship and encouragement of the people we may meet.”

he children came prepared. Holding Easter baskets and pails, wearing rain coats, rubber boots and holding umbrellas, they crowded the Nestucca Valley High School football field ready to hunt eggs. The community egg hunt, which was hosted by the Nestucca Valley Lions Club on Saturday, April 19, is a local tradition and bad weather never stands in the way of tradition in this coastal community. According to Lions Club event coordinator Teresa Smith, more than 120 children showed up to hunt eggs this year. The turn out was lower than the previous year due to the rain. The organization was well prepared for a host of egg hunting tykes. Volunteers had painstakingly filled approximately 1,500 plastic eggs with donated prizes and treats for the children to collect. The prizes “were donated by various community individuals,” Smith said. “Also, several businesses donated gift certificates for items such as ice cream, cookies, hamburgers, potted annual plants.” The hunt was a way for the club to foster a sense of community for one and all in the Nestucca Valley, according to Smith. “Lions Club motto is ‘We Serve,’” she said. “We care about the children in our area and want to give them a fun filled event.” It was the Lions Club’s second year to host the event. They did have help to make it a memorable event. Boy Scout Troop and Pack 179 was on hand to help out as were volunteers from the Nesko Women’s Club and the Nestucca Rural Fire District.

RAIN couldn’t keep the area’s children away from the annual Easter egg hunt at Nestucca Valley High School. More than 120 children and their parents braved the elements to gather the eggs filled with candy and gift certificates.

Port fetes newly constructed $1.5 million airport facility A public grand opening reception was held on Friday, April 25 to fete the completion of construction on the Tillamook Airport fixed-base operator facility, the latest addition to the Port of Tillamook Bay’s growing aviation-related offerings. The full project cost roughly $1.5 million, which included demolition of the old structures, the new building construction, and water and sewer tie-ins to the Port’s existing systems. The 3,200-square-foot building adds to existing airport services, which include card lock system (for both Jet A and Avgas), hangaring, parking, full-time staff, aircraft tie-down and two runways, the main runway being one of the longest on the Coast at 5,000 feet, said Port General Manager Michele Bradley. The new building replaces an antiquated 575-square-foot unit that housed airport office and radio equipment. “The Tillamook Airport is a vital connection to the community,” said Bradley, noting local airport traffic includes daily UPS flights, chartered flights catering to tourists, private airplanes, military aircraft, vintage military aircraft, experimental aircraft, airships, light passenger planes and helicopters. More than 35 pilots store their personal aircraft in hangars at the airport as well, she added. In addition to offering an airport office and radio room for the two airport employees, plus a pilot’s rest area, kitchenette, pilot flight plan area, storage and parking, the new FBO building features a meeting room that is available for public and private meetings by calling the Port’s main office. With floor-to-ceiling windows in the lobby/rest area and meeting room, the building features views of both TMK runways, World War IIera Hangar B, the Coast Range and pastureland. The FBO also looks toward the Airport Business Park headquarters for Near Space Corporation, a high-

altitude balloon manufacturing and suborbital flight testing company. Near Space is among six test sites in the United States to receive FAA designation as official unmanned aerial systems research and test flight operators. Other recent airport improvements include a full grind and re-lay of the main runway, new signage, drainage and lighting, additional elk fencing, a new emergency generator, and runway marking paint. These upgrades were paid for by Federal Aviation Administration, Connect Oregon grants and assistance from Business Oregon, said Bradley. Longtime aviator Sen. Betsy Johnson is among the new FBO’s champions, saying that she has observed more business being conducted at airports over the years, and that a solid, well-equipped FBO serves as a welcome mat to those flying in to visit the area for the first time. She and her husband John Helm operate Transwestern Aviation, the Scappoose Airport FBO. LRS Architects, of Portland, designed the building, Baumgart Construction, of Rockaway Beach, served as general contractor and Day CPM, of Beaverton, provided project management. The airport is located at 5005, U.S. Highway 101 S. Turn east on Matlock Way, just south of Long Prairie Road and the “plane-on-a-stick” Tillamook Air Museum marker. Situated on what was formerly a US Naval Air Station, the Port of Tillamook Bay is headquartered on the largest tract of industrial land – 1,600 acres – on the Oregon coast. The Port is in the process of completing $44.6 million in FEMAfunded infrastructure upgrades, new construction, and building rehabilitations at the park, as well as other projects funded by the FAA, Connect Oregon and Business Oregon. For more information, contact Michele Bradley, Port of Tillamook Bay general manager, at 503-8422413, Ext. 111, or mbradley@potb. org.

Women’s Resource Center to host annual ‘Soup Bowl’ event on May 17 The Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center will hold its 8th annual Tillamook Soup Bowl event on May 17 beginning at 5 p.m. The event, which will take place at the Old Mill Marina in Garibaldi, will feature 150 unique soup bowls created by local area potters especially for the event. An extensive variety of soups, artisan breads and desserts donated by local area individuals and restaurants will serve as the dinner fare. The first 150 people to purchase a $40 dinner ticket will receive the bowl of their choice to use for their soup and to take home with them as a memento. Tickets can also be purchased for $15 for dinner without a bowl. Tickets sell quickly. Contact the Wild Flower Thrift Store, 503-842-2996, or the TCWRC of-

fice at 503-842-9486 for tickets. After choosing their one-of-a-kind bowl and selecting from an array of tasty soups and desserts, participants will be serenaded by Craig Stokke and enjoy a slide show presentation given by the potters. Proceeds from the Soup Bowl support many area programs and services offered by TCWRC, including education, outreach, direct and emergency services, and shelter. The Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center is a non-profit organization made up of both paid staff and volunteers, working together to eliminate domestic and sexual violence.

Nestucca speech takes home third-place speech trophy By VICKY HIRSCH of the Sun

T

he Nestucca Valley High School speech team has provided another addition for the school’s trophy case.They tied with North Valley for third place in the District I-IV category in the OSAA State Speech Championship held April 25-26 at Western Oregon University. Junior Marie Krueger came home with her own piece of hardware — she placed second in the Prose category. Seniors Andrea Polivka and Nicole Bishop also competed and junior Nathan Hirsch attended as an alternate. Head coach David Schaefer praised the 24-member speech team as being among some of the best students in their

school. He explained that the real success of Nestucca’s program, which has won eight State trophies — six of them in the last eight years — is in the improvements made by the individual students. “Not every one can win,” he says, “but everyone can improve.” Schaefer added that participating in speech helps students become “more confident and communicative” in class, which helps them become better students — now and in college. Students are also eligible to receive college scholarships by participating in high school speech. “We run a very flexible program, so as to allow as many students as possible to participate in speech while still being involved in sports or other activities,” he said.

Clean and Green FOLLOWING the earlier example of Nestucca Jr.-Sr. High School, Neskowin Valley School and Nestucca Valley Elementary have received entry level Oregon Green School certification. Schools that join this program are committing to being actively engaged in promoting environmental sustainability in their schools and community. Nestucca Jr-Sr. High was the first school to reach this important milestone with Nestucca Elementary and Neskowin Valley schools following close behind. Above, NVS students show off their recently received Green School certificate. At right, Tillamook County Solid Waste outreach coordinator Sue Owens presents NVES principal Misty Wharton and... with their Green School certificate. The Oregon Green Schools Association helps Oregon schools set up and maintain effective, permanent waste reduction and resource efficiency programs that improve school environments and communities and recognizing schools for their efforts and achievements. A school’s success and advancement in the program is dependent on the dedication of students, staff, administration and community involvement and support. Participating schools can achieve merit and premier schools rating by demonstrating increased levels of sustainability in their schools. “I look forward to working with these schools in this exciting program and seeing their improvement in the future,” states Sue Owens, Tillamook County Solid Waste Outreach & Education Specialist and regional OGS coordinator, “it’s a great program that has the potential to make huge long-reaching impacts.”

NESTUCCA HIGH SCHOOL BOBCATS still have a slim chance to make it into district playoffs if they can win at least three more games to be in the running. The young team has struggled all season and lost to the Gaston Greyhounds, 12-2 on April 29. They face the Greyhounds for a double header at home Saturday, May 3.

A season of growth and development By DEE MOORE for the Sun

F

or fans of Bobcats baseball, this season has been a series of highs and lows as the youthful club grows, stretches and learns what it means to be a team. This process often includes losses. When the ‘Cats traveled to Gaston on Tuesday, April 29, their hearts and minds weren’t in the game and it showed. They ended up losing the game to the Greyhounds, 12-2. After scoring early during the first inning, Nestucca stumbled and appeared to lose interest in the contest. “There was not much focus, they didn’t really want to play,” said coach Jim Kiser. The team scored two runs early in the game, but quickly gave those up thanks to errors in the bottom of the first inning, the coach added. It was the first in a three game series; the ‘Cats will host Gaston for a double header on Saturday, May 3. There is still a slim chance that the Nestucca team could make it into district playoffs. With only eight

games left in the season, the team has to pull together quickly and find their focus. After the team finishes its series against Gaston, they face the,Portland Lutheran Bluejays, winners of 8 out of 17 games this season, and Faith Bible, victorious in 6 out of 15. Nestucca has won 5 out of 17. Kiser believes that if the team plays a “clean game” Tuesday, May 6, against Portland Lutheran, if they compete well and don’t make any errors, they might still have a chance at district playoffs. They would need to win at least two more games to be in the running. But for now he is focusing on Saturday’s doubleheader. “There’s still a shot. If we do that, it will still be a tight game against Gaston,” he said. The Greyhounds are going to be tough to beat. The team is very experienced and plays well together which means the ‘Cats are going to have to play their best ball yet, Kiser said. “I’ve seen a lot of improvement. I’ve been impressed with their improvement. I am looking forward to winning a couple of games,” he said.

Nestucca softball still addressing learning curve By DEE MOORE for the Sun

E

xperience is costly, just ask the coach of any successful ball club and he will tell you, you pay for experience with losses. The Lady Bobcats softball team is gaining experience. They lost 7-0 to Gaston on Tuesday, April 29, but this loss followed a win. The ‘Cats hosted Knappa and beat the Lady Loggers 1-0 on April 25. It has been touch and go as the Lady ‘Cats hone their skills. “We couldn’t get the offense rolling,” said coach Jeff Schiewe. “Pitcher junior Kycie Richwine threw only one walk. She did an outstanding job.” “Monday’s game … Nestucca got Knappa. That was the only run of the game, Nestucca took Knappa 1-0,” he said. Both Sunny McCall and Emily Menefee played great ball during that game, he added. Though the team has struggled through the season for wins, its youthful players have made great strides. “The girls played well. They are improving … there has been a ton of improvement … and they are making a lot fewer mistakes and we still need to get better,” said Schiewe, “it’s very positive.”
