NEWS&COMMUNITY Beaver Mercantile to open for holidays Beaver Mercantile, a 2,500 square foot “collectables” retail space at 24747 Highway 101 in Beaver, will reopen Dec. 6 for a limited holiday run. With a plethora of Christmas ornaments, glassware, and collectable books on their shelves, new owner Marie Roberts hopes to provide a unique shopping experience for locals and visitors alike. Other merchandise at the collectables specialty shop will include Coca Cola paraphernalia, clothing, furniture, quilts and audio equipment. The store also will be serving refreshments on Saturday, Dec. 7 as they look to participate in the South Tillamook County Christmas Bazaar Tour. Roberts and her husband Ed purchased the Mercantile last July from Fred Bassett. The couple hails from Stockton, Calif. Marie says the decision to buy the store was based on their desire for a quieter life. Still, it won’t all be new to the couple. Though Marie spent 30 years as a midwife, she also has owned three antique shops during her career. “We like the small community,” she says. “We want to be an active part of Tillamook County and the community.” The Mercantile will be open Dec. 6-8, 13-14, and 20-22 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. during their limited holiday run. They will then close to finish renovations and reopen in spring 2014. For more information, call 503-398-2897.

On Our Cover:

A Pacific City-Hawaii link-up Hawaiki signs option agreement that, if exercised, would land South Pacific submarine cable in Pacific City by 2015


n deals inked on Nov. 18 with Tillamook Lightwave and CoastCom, Hawaiki Cable Limited, the New Zealand owner and developer of Hawaiki submarine cable system, signed an option agreement that paves the way for a proposed 8,700-mile trans-Pacific cable in Pacific City. The contracts with Tillamook Lightwave and CoastCom are for key infrastructure and connectivity, including a cable landing station, terrestrial infrastructure, and a new fiber backhaul network that will connect the cable landing station to Hillsboro, Ore. “This agreement is another significant milestone for Tillamook Lightwave,” said Paul Levesque, president of Tillamook Lightwave. “We welcome Hawaiki to Pacific City, demonstrating once again the community’s capacity to accommodate business interests ranging from individual entrepreneurs to international companies.” Levesque said that the option agreement, which has a lease attached to it that they have 18 months to exercise, gives Hawaiki an opportunity to finish selling circuits to customers. “(The agreement) means they now have commitments at both ends for their cable landing stations in the South Pacific and the US, and they have an agreement in place with the company that’s going to build the submarine cable,” said Levesque. “(It) shows their customers that this is the real deal. They can sign up customers and that confirms to the banking and financing people (that the support is there for them to grant the financing for the project).” As part of the agreement, Hawaiki is paying $10,000 for electrical upgrades at the TLW cable landing station for work that will be done this winter. The payment is non-refundable. Hawaiki will also

for completion in late 2015, will link Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii to the US West Coast. Tillamook Lightwave, an intergovernmental agency that links Tillamook County, the Port of Tillamook Bay and Tillamook PUD and seeks to develop a fiber network within the County to support high-speed telecommunications, will host the Hawaiki cable system at its Pacific City landing station, and provide terrestrial infrastructure, including conduit from the beach manhole to the landing station. CoastCom, a privately held Oregon Competitive Local Exchange Carrier, will supply and install a brand new fiber optic backhaul network that connects the cable landing station with networks in Hillsboro. Both contracts cover the 25-year life of the cable. CoastCom is a privately held Competitive Local Exchange Carrier based in Newport. They own fiber optic distribution networks in many coastal communities and serve as the network operator for Tillamook Lightwave. “One of the greatest challenges facing trans-Pacific cable developers is securing a US landing point and associated backhaul,” said Galasso. “So we’re delighted to reach this critical project milestone and sign contracts with Tillamook Lightwave and CoastCom. Both providers are intimate with local regulatory processes and possess expertise that will smooth system deployment.” Hawaiki Cable is a New Zealand registered bandwidth supplier in the Pacific submarine cable market, and the owner and developer of the Hawaiki submarine cable system. The Hawaiki cable is a repeatered submarine cable system with a design capacity of 20 Tbps linking Whangarei, Sydney, Hawaii and the US West coast.

ODFW seeks input for Marine Reserves Management Plan The ODFW marine reserves program is looking for input from community members to develop sections of the Cascade Head and Cape Perpetua site management plans. In part, input will be collected through a series of workshops, to be held from December through the spring of 2014. ODFW says the site management plans will outline the best ways for the agency to share their scientific monitoring results and activities, provide general information about Oregon’s marine reserves, improve compliance through rules education, and provide opportunities for people to get involved. In addition, the site management plans will outline the community’s in-

terests and priorities for activities above and beyond those of ODFW. Organizers say community input in each of these areas is vital to making the plans successful. Each of the workshops will focus on one section of the management plan. Those unable to attend the workshops will be afforded other opportunities for input including conversations between stakeholders and ODFW staff and a public review and comment period before the plans are completed. The first workshops will specifically focus on how to communicate ODFW’s ecological monitoring activities and results. ODFW will be looking to answer the question: What are the best ways to share information with the community?

Workshops are open to everyone. Light refreshments will be provided. For the Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve, the first workshop will be
Wednesday Dec. 4, from 6-8 pm. at Siuslaw Library, 1460 9th St., Florence; and for the Cascade Head Marine Reserve, the initial workshop will be
Monday, Dec. 8 from 6-8 pm. at the Lincoln City Community Center, 2150 NE Oar Place, Lincoln City. The two workshops will be on the same topic, but for each reserve separately. Notice for additional workshops will be posted at\ marinereserves. For more information, call Stacy Galleher or Cristen Don of the ODFW Marine Reserves Program at 541867-7701.

pay TLW approximately $22,000 — a payment that will be a first and last months rent if the lease is exercised. If they opt not to exercise the lease, TLW will retain that payment as well. Once Hawaiki exercises the lease agreement, they will also need a subsurface cable grounding station, the most likely location of which is the Tillamook County parking lot at the end of Pacific Avenue. TLW and Tillamook County have agreed that if Hawaiki decides to use this area as its grounding station, that TLW will take over the management of the parking lot. If that’s the case, they will charge Hawaiki $12,000 a year for putting a grounding grid under the parking lot. They would use $1,200 a year for grounding station maintenance and $10,800 for maintaining the parking lot, which means moving sand to clear away parking spaces for public use. “We are very pleased that Hawaiki has chosen to land its submarine cable in Pacific City,” said Greg Palser, president of CoastCom. “Dependable, diverse terrestrial fiber routes that traverse coastal and metro areas are critical for submarine cable system developers. We are delighted that Hawaiki has chosen CoastCom and look forward to a long and successful working relationship.” Rémi Galasso, chief executive officer of Hawaiki Cable Limited, pointed to Hillsboro’s status as a major point of presence on the US West Coast and said it presented the best opportunity to interconnect with US carriers. “Oregon is the best state on the West Coast to land a submarine fiber optic cable. The coast is relatively safe and the State permitting process is shorter. Our customers tell us that they like Oregon’s diversity and easy access to US networks and data centers,” said Galasso. Hawaiki’s cable system, scheduled

THE CHILDREN AND FAMILIES of Neskowin Valley School reached their goal of collecting 1,500 empty milk jugs to earn a recycled plastic bench through the Tillamook County Waste Management Program. The collection was in honor of Recycling Awareness Week in Tillamook County, Nov. 9-16. Children ages pre-k through 5th grade, with the help of their families and local businesses, worked hard to collect #2 recyclable plastic containers to achieve the goal.

2014 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations now available The 2014 Oregon Sport Fishing regulations are now available on-line, at ODFW offices and at most places that sell hunting and fishing licenses. One of the most significant changes in this year’s regulations is a number of new license options that include the Columbia River Basin endorsement. Beginning Jan. 1, 2014, the new endorsement will be required for all anglers fishing for salmon, steelhead and sturgeon within the Columbia River Basin – an area that includes the Willamette, Central and Northeast angling zones, as well as a handful of Columbia River tributaries in the northern edge of the Northwest Zone. The 2014 endorsement, along with all other licenses, will go on sale Dec. 1, 2013. Anglers can purchase the $9.75 annual endorsement in conjunction with a fishing license, a combined fishing and hunting license, or sports pac. The endorsement also can be purchased separately at a later date, though anglers will have to pay an additional $2 transaction fee. “If your 2014 plans include fishing for salmon, steelhead or sturgeon in the Columbia River or its tributaries, we encourage you to buy the endorsement at the same time you get your license,” said Mike Gauvin, ODFW recreational fisheries manager. “Not only will you save two dollars, you will have one less fishing document to fit in your wallet.” For daily licenses, the endorsement will be $1 per day. Holders of free resident disabled veteran, pioneer and youth-under-14 licenses will be issued a free Columbia River Basin endorsement upon request. The Columbia River Basin endorsement was approved by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission in October 2013 as part of a larger package of management reforms for fisheries on the lower Columbia River. Under this new management regime, non-tribal commercial gill nets are being transitioned off the lower mainstem Columbia River into off-channel areas, and the sports share of available salmon harvest is increasing. The endorsement will fund the transition of non-tribal commercial gill nets out of the mainstem Columbia River into enhanced off-channel areas, freeing up additional salmon and steelhead for sport fishing. Visit the ODFW Website for more information.

TILLAMOOK Lightwave President Paul Levesque and Nestucca Valley Community Alliance President Gloria Scullin congratulate one another following the Nov. 16 signing of a 45-year lease that will allow NVCA to develop 2.1 acres of the 4.5-acre fiber optic cable landing station near Cape Kiwanda for community use. In addition, another .32 acres will be licensed to NVCA, which hopes to develop a park that will include a skate park, amphitheater, interpretative center, picnic areas, and a trail head for the adjacent BLM, US Forest Service and Tillamook County lands.

Advisory Committee delays recommendation on Cape Kiwanda recycling center By VICKY HIRSCH of the Sun


he Tillamook County Parks Advisory Committee discussed a proposed garbage and recycling center — which would feature two 32-gallon waste compactors, two 50- to 65-gallon recyclable materials collection units, and one collection unit for cans and bottles — to be located in the parking lot at Cape Kiwanda in Pacific City at their Nov. 26 meeting. The original proposal called for the $10,000 cost to be divided equally between Tillamook County Parks, Tillamook County Solid Waste,

and the community of Pacific City. At press time, no group in Pacific City had committed to the funds, though Solid Waste has made a commitment and the Parks Committee expressed positive interest in committing their share if they feel there is support from the Pacific City community for the project. David McCall of Tillamook County Solid Waste and Tillamook County Parks Director Del Schleichert plan to attend the Pacific City-Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce meeting on Jan. 7 to evaluate community response. They will report back to the committee at their Jan. 28 meeting.

passion for the outdoors. A creative and keen eye. It all adds up to a passion to share his impression of the world that makes up our little slice of paradise. Tillamook native Jarett Juarez will be featured at Stimulus Espresso Cafe, Dec. 2-Jan. 31. The nature lover turned photographer will be featured at the cafe on Thursday, Dec. 5 when Stimulus will host Juarez during an artist reception from 6-8 p.m. Juarez first discovered his creative skills behind a camera lens during his middle school years. As it turns out, it was a talent that, over years, has blossomed into a deep passion. He says the passion developed when, absent good waves to surf, he opted to capture Northwest coast scenes with his camera. And it wasn’t long before he was reeling in some extra cash taking senior photos for classmates and family portraits for families in the community. Though he pursued a career “on the other side of the lens” after graduating from high school when he moved to Los Angeles, Calif. in 2012, he found that the “big city” lifestyle was not to his liking after a year in Southern California. And so now he’s back in Oregon — and in the process of turning his love for the Pacific Northwest — and for photography — into a career.

he idea to build a coast highway from Canada to Mexico began with an Oregon legislator named Ben F. Jones. He introduced the Roosevelt Coast Highway bill in the 1919 session of the Oregon State Legislature. The bill put up $2.5 million of the state’s money to build the road if the federal government would match the funds. Chief support came from the military, which said the road would be a necessity if the country was attacked on the Pacific Coast. It was considered one of the most unpopular measures to be voted upon, but it ended up carrying the largest vote of any measures of that session because of Ben Jones traveling up and down the Oregon Coast to sell the bill. Before that time, the road was a series of disconnected wagon roads with ferries used to cross waterways. First, Oregon passed the necessary legislation and allocated funds. Then, California and, later, Washington followed. The highway was first called the Roosevelt Military Highway and then changed to the Roosevelt Coast Highway before becoming Highway 101. Serious work began on the highway in Tillamook County in 1927 with the rocking and grading of the old roads and cutting new ones. More than 45 homes needed to be moved as the road was widened. In 1930 and 1931, most of the highway was graveled and work on bridges began in locations such as the Nehalem, Tillamook Rivers, Doughtery and Hoquarton Slough. The section crossing Neah-Kah-Nie Mountain was the last section in Tillamook County. It was completed in 1931. In 1932, only five bays and rivers on the Roosevelt Highway still had ferry crossings. In “Early Childhood Memories in Meda, Oregon,” written by Wilma Hagerty Rowland, the author recounts the construction process. “The summer of 1922 was exciting due to the building of a new section of the Roosevelt Highway near our house. “The new highway section started at the end of the Little Nestucca River Bridge and went south to Neskowin. The work was done with horse, fresnos (scrapers), wagons with gravel beds, horse drawn graders and a steam roller to pack the final road bed. “When the workmen arrived, they came in wagons with camping equipment. Some were alone and some with families that lived in tents across the river from us. From the bridge as far back as we could see towards Cloverdale, there were wagons, one after another, some with extra horses tied behind. Some had scrapers and all looking for places to live or camp for the summer. “All the work was done the hard way as they cut across just at the base of the hill to Redberg Road in Oretown. The men would hold the fresnos so they would dig into the dirt until full then take it to a low spot to dump with a rope attached to a bar that would

lift up the back and dirt would slide out. The grader was pulled by horses with town men riding one on each side to turn a steering type wheel to raise, lower and angle the grader blade. The gravel was hauled in wagons with gravel boxes that consisted of 2X4’s with the ends hewed for rounded handles. To dump the gravel the ends were lifted so it could fall through the bottom of the wagon bed. To finish, fine gravel was rolled by a steam roller. Mama’s cousin Charley Murphy ran the steamroller but I don’t remember who fired the boiler. “It took all summer to build that short piece of road. We then walked to school that way it saved about half mile but when it stormed and the east wind blew, it wasn’t as pleasant as the old road with trees for protection.” Rowland’s book is available at South Tillamook Library, located at 6200 Camp Road in Pacific City.

t’s time to say good bye to a very long but prosperous salmon season. It is a fact that we have literally been fishing for salmon since mid-May. It started with spring chinook in May, and it is now finishing off with the last of the fall chinook. To summarize, we have actually had two of the best seasons, in the same year, of salmon fishing in recent memory. The spring chinook fishing was extremely good this year and was a culmination of three back-to-back-to-back years during which we have seen an increased number of springers every year. Each year has exceeded the past year in excellence — and numbers. Some of the credit goes to Mother Nature for seeing fit to bless us with some very good ocean conditions. The rest of the credit goes to the hatchery staff at Cedar Creek Hatchery. The very capable hatchery staff has, every year, improved upon what they do. With the experienced crew at the hatchery, I see no reason to expect any less in the next few years. The springer season ended July 31 in the Nestucca River, but the tidewater fall chinook season started Aug. 1. It amounted to no break in salmon fishing — just a shift in what and where it was done. August started a little slow, but by Photo courtesy of Pat Gefre September early rain had started to bring WITH ONE OF the most successful salmon seasons in memory in very early fall chinook off the ocean. coming to a close, fisherman are turning their attention to winter Numbers were huge and in the first part steelhead. of October everyone was wondering if it was just an early season and would it end so few almost none ever caught them.
