Agriculture producer sought for Nestucca Bay Refuge The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is seeking an agricultural producer for a Cooperative Agriculture Agreement at Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge. The producer will have use of up to 61.5 acres of lowland pasture land on the refuge for a period of three years as a cooperator with the Service. The Nestucca Bay Refuge was established in 1991, in part, to protect and enhance habitat for wintering geese. Managed refuge pastures receive sustained waterfowl use from fall through spring and provide quality forage, which improves waterfowl health and survival. Between 6,000 to 11,000 Canada geese of six subspecies, including 18 percent of the world’s population of the dusky Canada goose (a Federal species of special concern) winter in the Nestucca Valley. The refuge’s goal is to minimize depredation on private pasturelands by maximizing waterfowl use on refuge lands. Refuge pasture management is based on recognition of the importance of short grass habitats to geese and a commitment to habitat protection for the mutual benefit of wildlife and the local dairy industry. The Cooperator will operate under a Cooperative Agricultural Agreement and will be responsible for managing 61.5 acres of lowland pastures on the Refuge. The cooperator will be required to manage the grasslands and harvest the forage produced by grazing, mowing, haying, and green chopping annually between April 15 to Oct. 31. The cooperator will be selected through an open and competitive process where applications will be scored and ranked by a panel including representatives from the Service, Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife, and Oregon State University Agricultural Extension staff. To apply, complete FWS Form 3-1383-C and supplemental application questions. The application form, maps of the proposed cooperative agriculture area, supplemental application instructions and questions, criteria, and examples of a Cooperative Agriculture Agreement can be downloaded at bay. Hard copies can be requested by contacting Kelly Moroney, project leader, at 541-867-4550 or Applicants can send completed proposals to Kelly Moroney, 2127 SE Marine Science Drive, Newport, OR 97365 or Proposal envelopes must be received in the refuge office by Nov. 30 at 5 p.m. All proposals will be opened on Dec. 4. The individual with the highest-ranked proposal will be notified within three weeks of their selection. The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.

Brightening the Holidays Nestucca Valley Lions Club seeks donations for its Christmas Basket Program By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun


he Nestucca Valley Lions Christmas Basket Program is seeking food, gifts and cash donations to help make the holidays a more festive time for families in need. The program, which is now in its 47th year, has several ways the community can contribute this year as the program seeks to raise enough money and gather enough contributions to serve approximately 97 less fortunate families in the area. “In South Tillamook County, we have many neighbors in need,” said Lions Club member and program coordinator Teresa Smith. “We’re here just to make their holidays brighter.” “It’s been a tradition for 47 years,” added Rose Wharton, manager at the Pacific City branch of Oregon Coast Bank. Giving Trees are now up at several South Tillamook County areas including the Pacific City branch of Oregon Coast Bank, the Kiawanda Community Center, Chester’s Thriftway, Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District’s Hebo fire

station and the Cloverdale branch of US Bank. Each tree has several ornaments that have special requests for children of all ages. Those wishing to help out are invited to pick an ornament and return it with an unwrapped gift to the bank or business it was obtained from. The deadline for returning gifts is Dec. 14. As well, the Lions Club has placed both coin donation boxes and perishable food donation boxes at businesses throughout South Tillamook County. Cash donations will be used to purchase food, clothing and sundry items. The deadline for the nonperishable food and coin drives is Dec. 13. Cash donations can also be sent to: Nestucca Valley Christmas Baskets, PO Box 177, Cloverdale, OR 97112. There are also opportunities for community members to volunteer their help. The Community Volunteer Week is Dec. 16-22, when volunteers are invited to help wrap, sort and assemble baskets at the Nestucca Fire Hall in Hebo from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Baskets will be delivered on Saturday, Dec. 23 and drivers are needed. For more information, call Teresa Smith at 541-227-9411 or Dorothy Gann at 503-812-0364.

Dorothy Gann to fill unexpired term on Nestucca Fire Board of Directors The Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District Board of Directors appointed South County resident Dorothy Gann to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Ken Crowe at their Nov. 8 meeting in Hebo. The unexpired term will run through May 2019, at which time she will need to get voters’ okay to remain on the board. A resident of South Tillamook County for the last 12 years, Gann brings with her board experience on two local boards — the Nesko

Women’s Club and the Nestucca Valley Lions Club, the latter of which she is currently serving as president. As well, she has served as co-chair of the South County Christmas Basket Program, led fundraisers for the Lions Club and helped to organize the Clover’s Day celebration. The board also voted to appoint Nettie Casiano as the board’s vicepresident, an opening made when board member Verne Mobley moved from VP to president last month.

THE PACIFIC CITY OFFICE OF WINDERMERE WEST LLC recently presented a donation of $750 to Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District Chief Jim Oeder to benefit the Nestucca Valley Lions Christmas Basket Program. The donation continues the tradition of the Windermere Foundation, which for the past 28 years, has donated a portion of the proceeds from every home purchased or sold towards supporting low-income and homeless families in the communities it serves.

To date, more than $33 million has been raised for programs and organizations that provide shelter, food, children’s programs, and other services who need help most. In addition, a check in the amount of $1,500 was presented to the Nestucca Valley Backpack Program during their annual fundraising event held in September.

pening Saturday, Nov. 11 at 5 p.m., Liisa Rahkonen returns to Rowboat Gallery with a new series of paintings on paper and ceramic stoneware sculptures, teaming up with wood artist Jay Ylvisaker, who will be showing work completed during the last year. The show’s theme, Earth and Sky, reflects both a strong sense of being grounded in the natural environment through the mediums of clay, wood, oil and wax; and of moving out of the physical form into different dimensions of experience. The show runs through Jan. 11, 2018 at Rowboat Gallery, 34950 Brooten Rd., Pacific City. For this show, Rahkonen focused on images of birds common on the Oregon Coast, but these birds seem intensely personal, embodying a strong aura of leading the viewer to some other place or time. The same is true for Ylvisaker’s shrine-like constructions, where beautiful woods and exquisite joinery are immediately present, but where one is also invited to dwell within their interiors and to explore passages leading beyond. Rahkonen has been working as a professional artist since the early 1970s. With many regional and national shows and awards to her credit, she continues to explore the creative process from her studio overlooking the Salmon River estuary. After studying at Pacific Northwest College of Art, Ylvisaker’s love of wood and fascination with the interface between architectural form and function led to a career as a designer, builder and finish carpenter. Since moving here to the coast, he has set up a studio/workshop where he can now focus on work that distills and synthesizes all this past experience into small but very power-

Local churches participate in Operation Christmas Child’s shoebox drive This month, nearly 5,000 U.S. locations will serve as drop-off sites for the Samaritan’s Purse project, Operation Christmas Child—collecting gift-filled shoeboxes for children in need around the world. During the project’s National Collection Week, Nov. 13-20, anyone can transform empty shoeboxes into gifts of hope filled with school supplies, hygiene items and fun toys. Operation Christmas Child will deliver these shoebox gifts to children affected by war, disease, disaster, poverty and famine. Amongst the churches collecting the boxes locally are Pacific Coast Bible Church, 35220 Brooten Rd., Pacific City, Healing Waters Bible Church, 41505 Oretown Rd. East, Cloverdale, and Beaver Community Church, 24675 Highway 101 S., Beaver. All three will be collecting filled boxes on Sunday, Nov. 12, but boxes can also be returned at Bethel Baptist in Tillamook the entire collection week. Empty boxes can be obtained by contacting Beaver Community Church Pastor Josh Gard at The nationwide effort is expected to see more than 100,000 volunteers including families, churches and other groups linking arms across the country to contribute to the largest Christmas project of its kind. In 2017, Operation Christmas Child hopes to collect enough shoebox gifts to reach 12 million children, with 9.6 million coming from the United States. “The shoebox gifts donated

throughout the country at these dropoff locations will shine a light of hope to children living in poverty overseas,” said Randy Riddle, senior director of Operation Christmas Child in the United States. “Anyone is welcome to pack a shoebox and help a child facing difficult circumstances to feel loved and not forgotten.” For more information on how to participate in Operation Christmas Child or to view gift suggestions, call 1-800-353-5949 or visit Participants can donate $9 per shoebox gift online through “Follow Your Box” and receive a tracking label to discover its destination. Those who prefer the convenience of online shopping can browse to select gifts matched to a child’s specific age and gender, then finish packing the virtual shoebox by adding a photo and personal note of encouragement. Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief and evangelism organization headed by Franklin Graham. The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world and, together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 146 million gift-filled shoeboxes to children in more than 160 countries and territories.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD provides shoeboxes full of gifts, both practical and fun, to children around the world, who otherwise would receive nothing. Several local churches are participating in filling and collecting shoeboxes, and the community is welcome to get involved.

It would be nice to hear the story and history of this unique item. “These awards are great, but I’m really just doing my job,” McCall told commissioners following accolades from the elected leaders. “It’s fun in a case like this to share some of the unique finds. “It’s unfortunate that there are hazardous materials out there, but when people come across old chemicals and dangerous materials, it’s important that they have a place where they can safely dispose of them. By bringing them to our facility, people can rest assured that their homes are free from hazards like this, and keep them safe for their kids and grandkids, as well as themselves.” The next residential collection event will be 9 a.m. -1 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017, at the Tillamook Transfer Station (1315 Ekloff Road, just south of Tillamook).

Registration open for January Master Gardener classes Want to grow your green thumb? Want to become a better gardener, applying up-to-date scientific methods, reducing pesticides and weeds? The opportunity to learn from the experts and become a Master Gardener is coming this winter. Weekly classes taught by Oregon State University faculty and local experts start Jan. 11. Every Thursday, participantns will hear from a variety of experts on all aspects of gardening on the Oregon Coast. The 12-week course, offered by the Tillamook office of Oregon State University Extension Service, will cover soils, propagation, pruning, landscape and garden planning and design, suitable plants for coastal gardening and landscaping, pest and disease control, weed management, orchards, raised beds, and other topics of interest to local gardeners. Students will experience a variety of hands on and interactive training, including greenhouse techniques at the learning garden, assisted by local Master Gardeners and OSU staff. The program also requires 60 hours

of community service work in the first year of training, including advising the public during Master Gardener office hours. “By taking the Master Gardener classes, and in helping others, our Master Gardener apprentices develop their own expertise and abilities to better serve the community. This is a great way to help yourself and others enjoy their gardens using current scientific knowledge,” Joy Jones, local OSU Extension Agent, says. Tuition is $120 and includes the comprehensive “Sustainable Gardening” book, as well as access to a wide range of printed and on-line resources, and experienced professional instructors. For those who do not have the time or desire to volunteer, they too may take the training and receive a certificate of horticulture. The fee for this option is $240.
