Fair disbursement of tourism funds proves to be hottest topic in July 10 hearing on Transient Lodging Tax By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun



illamook County Commissioners held their second public hearing on a proposed Transient Lodging Tax on July 10. Officials are discussing whether to place the TLT on the November ballot. Though commissioners eventually decided to hold off on most decisions, there was a general consensus on the ordinance itself, which would feature a 10 percent TLT tax, with a 9 percent credit to cities that already have their own lodging or room tax. The tax split represents a change from the 9/8 proposal that was in the original draft. The commissioners also voted, 2-1, to change the proposal’s effective date from Jan. 1, 2013 to April 1. Still, there are several issues that remain contentious. If testimony at the meeting is any indication, the real crux of the issue turns out to be not should we have a TLT, but how should that money be distributed and, just as importantly, who has the say in how it will be spread around. Opinions from South Tillamook County representatives ranged from general support to suggestions that a more fair arrangement needs to be included in the intergovernmental agreement that will establish who decides where the money goes to and how that money is doled out. Local motel operator Doug Olson, who is also the vice chair of the Tillamook County Economic Development Council, said he liked the proposal because he didn’t feel it would place Tillamook County at a disadvantage with Lincoln County, Clatsop County or elsewhere in the state. He did support the 17-member advisory committee, which has been proposed to help either serve as decision makers on how or where the money will be spent or as a committee that just makes recommendations to the EDC board and county commissioners, with those groups having final

Burn season to close July 15

THE 54TH ANNUAL Dory Days hits Pacific City July 19-21, with the famed Dory Days Parade starting at 11 a.m. on July 20 in the town’s downtown core. Other activities during the three days of celebration include a marine and artisan fair and a fish fry.

She said at the end of that time, needs could be reassessed, but that continued priority should be given to unincorporated areas — areas where the bulk of TLT revenue would be coming from. Hoffman’s line of thinking was also reflected in Kiwanda Hospitality president Jeremy Strober’s comments. “I have to say that it continues to amaze me how much intense interest and how many assertions are made by our cities when as of just a couple of weeks ago there was no interest in contributing anything to the county tourism fund,” he said. “At least at this point, we have support for contribution of 1 percent, but I need to point out that that amounts to about $133,000 — all cities combined, while we stand to collect over $1.3 million dollars from unincorporated communities. It’s hard to imagine that there would be this much intense interest and assertion of how the structure should be developed unless there was some interest in obtaining more benefit out of that than what is contributed.” To make the distribution of monies more fair in relation to what would be contributed, Strober suggested using 30 percent of the new tourism money for a county-wide promotion plan with the remainder going towards promoting the tourism services infrastructure in unincorporated communities. “That gives us about $300,000 to start to promote our county as a whole,” he said. “With my suggestions, the cities will benefit in a larger way than they contributed and that’s OK as long as unincorporated areas receive funding for tourism infrastructure they so badly need.” County commissioners will hold another public meeting on July 17, 10:45 a.m. at Tillamook County Courthouse during which they will review proposed changes and possibly vote whether to approve the new ordinance for placement on the November ballot.

“I think this is the biggest single thing for Tillamook County. I would urge you to keep it moving,” he said. Other key players in South Tillamook County were more critical of the plan. Reading from a letter she submitted on the behalf of the Pacific CityNestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce, Chamber president Merrianne Hoffman noted that the current plan would generate more than $200,000 in new tax revenue from the cities but more than $1.4 million from unincorporated areas. She said the unincorporated areas have no interest in having a piece of the more than $1 million current county cities are collecting in their own lodging tax but is concerned about how any new money is distributed given that more than 85 percent would come from unincorporated areas of Tillamook County. “While the Chamber strongly supports county-wide tourism advertising and promotion, we want facilities development to be focused in the unincorporated areas. At the County’s Tourism Symposium earlier this year we heard about two projects in particular, Rails and Trails and the expansion of the Scenic Railroad, that offer no potential benefit to South Tillamook County, but are clearly the focus of attention of the mayors and the economic Development Council...It is clearly a case of ‘what’s ours is ours, what’s your is ours too!’ We are correct to fear that the revenue generated (by the proposed TLT) in South County will be used to fund these projects instead of being used to develop much-needed tourism facilities in unincorporated areas. The Chamber recommends that the Board of County Commissioners, after deducting the 30 percent for County (road maintenance) use, dedicate at least 70 percent of the remaining revenue collected in unincorporated areas to tourist-related facilities development and maintenance in those areas exclusively, for a period of four years.”

SLINGBALL ENTHUSIASTS raised an estimated $14,000 during the seventh annual Marilyn J. Neu Help Defeat MS Slingball Tournament held June 28-30.

Champs for Charity Slingball Tournament raises $14,000 for MS sufferers By DEE MOORE for the Sun


he seventh annual Marilyn J. Neu Help Defeat MS Slingball Tournament was more than just an entertaining way to spend time at the beach, it was a gathering of people who are dedicated to honoring the memory of a woman whose carefree, fun-loving approach to life inspired all who knew her to embrace the moment. The event, which is sponsored by Cook Security Group, ran from June 28-30 and drew 200 players, a record number of participants. Randy and Carter Neu learned the game from their mother, Marilyn Neu, who in her 20s was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, a progressive autoimmune disease which slowly eats away at the central nervous system. The tournament was created by her sons, Randy and Carter Neu, as a tribute to their mother’s fun loving attitude and zest for life. They get lots of help from their wives, Tracy and Wendy. “It seems to grow every year,” Randy said. “It looks like we are going to be plus $14,000,” he said, all of which will go to the MS Society of Portland membership and the MS Society of Oregon. According to Randy, the money is distributed among the membership to help out with things that the sufferers might need. “I think she would be proud that we are bringing awareness to a disease that doesn’t get much awareness,” he said. The adult tourney winner was Paul Grass. Taking second place was Peter Arvidson, who was followed by Eldon Parry in third and Tyson Labrousse in fourth. Andy Grass was acknowledged for handling the betting board. Half of all winnings from the event were donated to MS. Slingball is sometimes called cowboy golf or hillbilly golf and, like horseshoes and bocce ball, is a frequent beach or barbecue activity. “Original Slingball is a game where two to four people play against each other and try to score by wrapping the sling balls around four sets of cross bars,” Randy said.

His mother, he said, believed in community and having a good time and she shared this love of life with her sons despite her illness. “It’s a melting pot of folks all having good fun. We get folks from Idaho, Seattle, Oregon and Arizona. Everybody likes making this their yearly beach trip.” One of the most popular events was the Mini-Marilyn Tournament, a kids event. This year’s event had 53 players. In first place was Lauren Clay. Ashley Meade placed second, Jackson Deines third and Brooklyn Sheehan finished in fourth. Ashton Thomas won the Kids Sportsmanship award and Ainsley Burchell received the Best Comeback trophy. Kiera Grant was honored for Most Points in One Round and Nick Johnson took home the prize for Winning in Two Rounds. In the Crazy Prizes category, Kyle Cagley, Kate Arvidson, Kyle Anderson and Ed Raisl won best costume. JoLynn Foulon won the Most Unique Balls award for having slingballs that looked like M&Ms candies. Levi Daily and Jim Burchell won for playing the Longest Game and Andrew Beattie took home the Gene Brockmeyer Sportsmanship award. The Bull Durham Award went to Tapper Anderson while Jackie Figuracion received the Taking One for the Team award. Sam Johnson was honored for having the Biggest Comeback and Brooke Willcox-Jones took the Razorlike Focus prize. Judy Pederson was named The Biggest Loser and Charles Mitchell took home The Negator award. Steve Gotsch and Makena Beckwith won for their Rage - Love t-shirts and Kim Parry was acknowledged for being First Out of the Tourney. Best Finish went to Doug Farr, Mark Pederson was honored for having 54 points in one game and both Tim LeMaster and Megan Hawkins received an award for having seven ro-sam-bos to start the game. Raffle prize winner was Jim Burchell. For more information about the fundraising efforts of the Neus or to donate, visit

NVCA reaches out to summer school students at Nestucca Elementary By DEE MOORE for the Sun


hat do dories, summer school and art have to do with each other? They are all part of a scientific educational outreach effort being made by the Nestucca Valley Community Alliance to the students at Nestucca Valley Elementary School. Recently students got to learn how a dory fishing boat works, as well as being afforded a chance to paint pictures of the fish that might get caught. In the process, they got a hands-on opportunity to learn about the oceanography and marine life that’s so near their homes. The NVCA is coming every Thursday during the short summer session to bring science to 56 firstthrough seventh-grade students at the school. According to school principal Misty Wharton, the non-profit organization wants to help provide the students in the district with a stronger foundation in science. Community education and outreach is part of the organization’s mission. “It’s solidified all of our combined strengths,” Wharton said. As part of the lesson, children got to paint their choice of cedar planks which had outlines of local fish life. Dressed in smocks, they decorated their salmon and rock fish with vivid paint jobs. Helping out with the lesson was NVCA board member Noe Martinez, who was supervising painters.

According to Martinez, the effort was made in the hopes to engage the students in science and the community in the Interactive Ocean’s Project through the National Science Foundaton. Oceanographer and board member Bill Busch was on hand for the classroom portion of the day, as was board vice president Paul Carlson, who was helping Martinez shepherd the students through the painting process. “What we want to do here is start the younger students on the path to science,” Carlson said. Part of this effort includes reaching out to the “under served students” so that science is available to everyone, he added. The hope is to encourage local students, teachers and parents to use the data feed from the IOP observation station in class and day-today activities. According to Busch, future educational efforts will focus on the watershed and monitoring and measuring soil erosion. Dory fisherman Rob Royster was also on hand to show the kids his boat and help teach the students about aquatic life and fishing off the central Oregon coast. Royster’s boat sat in the middle of the play ground surrounded by kids who pretended to be fish as he demonstrated how the craft functioned. While education is the focus of each Thursday science session, don’t tell the kids they are learning. As far as they are concerned, they are having fun.

Another Milestone

Inn at Cape Kiwanda celebrates 15 years of service and we thought this would be a good location,” said Jones. “Thankfully, as we enjoy a huge amount of return visitors. It turns out our feeling that a hotel on this site would work was right.” Equally thankful for the inn’s success is partner Paul Jinneman, who points to the people providing the hotel’s service as a big reason for their success. “It’s been the people that have made a difference,” he said. “To watch people grow with the company has been very satisfying.” For more information about the Inn at Cape Kiwanda, visit or call 503-965-7001.

“Service Even After The Sale”

ew would argue that Cape Kiwanda is one of the scenic wonders of the Oregon Coast. But it’s also a scene that when littered with refuse loses just a touch of its luster. With an eye on the overflowing dumpster at the Tillamook County parking lot that serves the Cape, the Tillamook County Solid Waste Department conducted a garbage audit on July 8 to determine if it was residential or visitor abuse. Legally, the dumpster is available for “parking lot” trash and is not meant to serve beach users, home residents or visitors. In total, Tillamook County Solid Waste Program manager David McCall estimates 7-8 cubic yards were examined. Though they did find some identifying evidence in the search, he cautioned that any names retrieved aren’t necessarily proof. He imagines a scenario where someone loses a receipt in a friend’s car and that friend is the one who ultimately throws it away. The audit did reveal that the

majority of the deposited garbage consisted of large bags full of paper plates, clam shells, diapers, pizza boxes and half-eaten food. Because of this make-up, he expects most of this was deposited from either vacation rentals or second/vacation homes as debris from picnics on the beach typically don’t feature such large bags and residential garbage would less likely have paper plates in it. “If you go down to the beach you’re going to have a smaller bag,” McCall said. Other items discovered revealed a real mix — some indicative of beach picnics and others of residential use. Amongst the items found were marine waste, cardboard boxes and, yes, bags from cars. As a temporary fix, County Parks, Community Development and the Solid Waste Department agreed to split the $1,400 bill needed to up the garbage pick-up to twice a week during a July 10 Tillamook County Commissioners meeting. In the long-term, they hope to erect larger signs to warn away offenders and to discuss other possible solutions.

Patrolling the Pyros

Sheriff’s effort to curtail illegal fireworks makes difference, but there’s still room for improvement By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun


elieve in the Big Bang Theory? How about the big bang that disturbs many a coastal resident when non-sanctioned fireworks disturb your tranquil home every Independence Day weekend? With numerous complaints piling up over the years, the Tillamook County Sheriff’s Department hoped to see less illegal explosions in the area this year through both an increased educational campaign and a renewed dedication to enforcement. The effort was met with mixed results. To underline the fact that it is indeed illegal to rocket airborne explosives into the night sky without a permit, the Sheriff’s Department erected a series of “No Fireworks” signs at several beach access points throughout the county. But many of those signs disappeared as quickly as they were placed. “(In Neskowin), they were (stolen) right away,” said Tillamook County Sheriff Andy Long. “We replaced them, but again they were taken.” The educational effort in Pacific City faired a little better thanks to the large banner stretched across a Sheriff’s Department incident command trailer placed at the Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District’s Pacific City station. Still, Long realizes that all the education in the world has little teeth without an enforcement effort. In the past, much of the challenge was the regulations that forbid the confiscation of explosive material without the proper disposal containers — a chal-

lenge that on the strength of a promise of donated sanctioned containers from Oregon State Police, Long hoped to have an answer to. Alas, when time is of the essence, things don’t always work out as planned. Though OSP has yet to deliver the containers, Long told the Sun his department hopes to have them on hand in a matter of weeks. Despite the confiscation threat, Long did devote more man-hours to curtailing the illegal activity. His department’s increased efforts on July 4 included the use of off-road vehicles on Pacific City beaches. He added that the few citations that were handed out were to those that reacted in an uncooperative manner after they were approached. In the end, Long says the department’s effort did make some difference — even if it wasn’t felt on the Fourth of July, an assertion that Nestucca Fire Chief Kris Weiland concurred with. “As far as illegal (firework displays), we had just as much as we have had in the past,” said Weiland. (The increased efforts) didn’t seem to have much of an impact. (From some standpoints), the actual illegal stuff put on a better show than the (planned legal display) in Pacific City.” The fire chief, however, was pleased that the illegal displays resulted in no incidents. In the past, Nestucca Fire has responded to brush and grass fires that were started by fireworks. “People told me it was a little quieter, but definitely not on the Fourth,” Long said. “Maybe they saved all their fireworks for that day. But we did get less complaints.”

Dory Days to fete fishing tradition of Pacific City with parade, marine and artisan fairs and fish fry By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun


hen it comes to fishing, the timehonored practice of taking to the Pacific City surf in a classic dory boat has few rivals. The community of Pacific City will commemorate this great tradition, July 1921, with Dory Days — three days of festivities including a parade, marine and artisan fairs, fish fry, music and children’s activities. This year’s theme is “Pacific City and All Its Dory.” “The festival celebrates our heritage here in Pacific City, which the dory fleet is a big part of,” said co-chair Becky Kirkendall. “It’s part of Photo by Tim Hirsch the uniqueness of our town.” The fun starts at 5 p.m. on Friday, July 19 PAST AND PRESENT dories will be on display at the 54th with the opening of the artisan fair at the fourannual Dory Days Marine Fair, held July 20-21 at Cape way stop in downtown Pacific City.

PERENNIAL PERFORMERS Dan Dover and Jerry Towell will return to Pacific City for the fourth annual Pacific City Folk Festival, July 26-27 at Twist Wine Tasting Room & Lounge.

Family and Folk Pacific City Folk Festival returns to Twist Wine Tasting Room July 26-27 By DEE MOORE for the Sun


he annual Pacific City Folk Festival is entering its fourth year and what began as a family event has grown to include more than 100 music lovers in celebration of the traditional art form. For the two brothers who founded the event, it started as a way to spend quality time with people they love. “My brother Mark and I had the idea that a celebration of family, friends and music, with the Oregon coast as the back drop, would be really cool,” said Doug Henderson. “Mark’s partner, Debbie Williams Brawner, and her family have had a vacation home in Pacific City for decades, so that became the location for our gathering.” Henderson lists John Prine, Steve Goodman, Richie Havens, Joan Baez, Tom Rush, Todd Snider, Slaid Cleaves, Danny Schmidt and Chris “Sandman” Sand among his favorite artists. The event is now held at Twist Wine Tasting Room and Lounge, which is located at 6425 Pacific Ave. Owners Chenin and Sean Carlton have provided exceptional support for the festival and wonderful hospitality to attendees. The free event is open to the public. While fun and family are huge components of the two day show, the Henderson’s love of folk music ties it all together. “Live music is the best, it connects folks in such a positive way,” Henderson said. The festival, which started as a one-night event in 2010 with just three performers, has grown. “Last year’s attendance was approximately 125 over two days. The PCFF has been growing each year,” Henderson said. The two-day show will showcase seven musicians this year.

According to Henderson, performers for the show are selected by the event’s board of directors, two of whom, Dan Dover and Jerry Towell, perform each year. “The Pacific City Folk Festival board of directors is a fancy way of saying some of my family and friends,” Henderson said. The performers are chosen based on specific criteria. The music should be acoustic or amplified acoustic, mainly original and the board must like it. “The folk music that we focus on is lyrically driven, original and acoustic,” he said. Though there will be some covers of classic songs, about 95 percent of the music will be original. “I think that electric instruments add a great sound to folk music. This year the festival will be solely acoustic,” Henderson said. This year, Oklahoma native and Portland resident Dan Dover will be entertaining music lovers with his signature guitar licks and original songs. He will be joined by Portland musicians, Jerry Towell, who fronts the classic rock bank House of Shims, and Andy Goncalves, who is a member of the progressive folk band, Boa Saida. The trio The Tummybuckles will bring their signature style of classically influenced club rock to the mix. Guitarist and songwriter John Manns, who won the songwriter of the year in 2011 from N.W. Chapter of the West Coast Songwriters, will also be performing. Gary Furlow will bring a bit of the Big Easy to the festival. The New Orleans native who fronts the band Gary Furlow and the Loafers, plays a unique blend of Cajun and Pacific Northwest influenced music. The show begins at 6 p.m. Friday, July 26, and will run to 9 p.m. The fun will pick back up on Saturday, with two shows, one from 2-7 p.m. and the other from 7-9 p.m.

acific City in the late 1950s and early 1960s was beginning to be a tourist destination, mainly due to the efforts of the Pacific City-Woods Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber was a group of hard working business owners who were trying to make a living in a town they loved. Some of the people very active in this early promotion work were Dutch Shermer, Liz Millar, Paul Hanneman, and Harvey Henderson. The Chamber, along with the Pacific City Women’s Club, began actively promoting the area through advertising and by staging events. The Chamber even entered a float, “Wanda the Whale,” in the Rose Festival one year. One of the most popular early events was the first Fish Fry/Fly-in. The little community of Pacific City, with a population of only about 400 people,

played host for almost 10 years to one of the largest fish fries on the Oregon Coast. It took an entire population to catch, prepare and serve the fish to the visitors arriving for the event. There were even door prizes for a lucky visitor —such as a 35-pound chinook salmon, a 25-pound round of famous Tillamook Cheese or a new fishing rod. The first Fish Fry /Fly-in was in 1951 to commemorate the airport being turned over to the State Board of Aeronautics. The 1952 Fish Fry /Fly-in attracted 65 planes from all over the state. That year they used a half ton of salmon, red snapper and cod to feed more than 1,500 people. The Fish-Fry became so well known that, at its height, it fed 4,000 people. It was discontinued in 1958 as it had become too large for the town to handle. The tradition of the Fish Fry continues today during Dory Days with hundreds of pounds of dory caught fish being served to residents and visitors. THIS GLASS BALL was the door prize at the 1955 Fish Fry won by Dave and Jackie Wetherbee.

The Wealth of White Water Fishing white water for summer steelhead gives Nestucca fishermen the upper hand By PAT GEFRE for the Sun


ummer steelhead, it’s like a dirty word when everyone is trying to catch spring chinook. Somehow in the middle of the night when no one was looking, they mysteriously showed up. Now that the water is low and clear and most self respecting chinooks have gone off the bite, summer steelhead are all the rage. It’s not fair to say that no springers are being caught, but in this low and clear water, it has become an early morning show. Once the sun hits the water, it’s pretty much over for the day. Overcast days with cloud cover are better for fishing salmon, but now that we have sunshine on a regular basis, many are converting to summer steelhead. Summers can be had almost anytime of day if you know where to look for them. To start, you need to downsize everything. Hooks and baits need to be smaller — much smaller. Lines and leaders, too. Presentations need to be more precise, no more wading through the middle of the holes. In the early morning, summer steelhead will be in tail outs and more open waters. By the time the sun is on the water, they have all but disappeared. Steelhead are not accustomed to presenting themselves to predators — it’s something they instinctively learn from the time they are tiny smolts. When the sun’s out, summer steelhead run and hide. Sometimes they will find a deep hole to lie in, but more often they will find a piece of shade up next to the river bank or a good piece of white water. White water is where the biggest percentage of steelhead will be. White water offers a variety of reasons to attract steelhead. First of all, there is the cover white water provides. Summers can hide under the white water and not be seen. White water also offers

good levels of oxygen and when the water breaks over rocks it offers some cavitation that make it easier for a steelhead to sit behind the rock and not have to expend much energy to stay there. It’s also an excellent position from which to ambush a bite to eat. Unsuspecting insects slide by a rock only to find a hungry steelhead charging out from hiding. Knowing this puts a fisherman in a position of advantage. Just as an insect floating down the river cannot see a steelhead in wait behind a rock, the steelhead also cannot see approaching bait. An awaiting steelhead must make a split-second decision about striking any given bait as it drifts by. This is a big advantage for the fishermen because steelhead will strike quickly and instinctively with no time to inspect the offering. A steelhead lying in open water has all the time necessary to see whether or not they want a particular offering. Not so when they are in white water. Often times you can mend a spinner through white water and get the same steelhead to bite over and over until it gets stung once or twice. Evening fishing can be productive like early morning fishing. Once the sun is off the water, steelhead will come out of hiding and into open water again. The closer you get to sunset the better the bite becomes. Sometimes the best fishing of the day will be the last 45 minutes of daylight.   Just a heads up, Three Rivers closes to all fishing from the hatchery to the mouth as of July 16. Three Rivers will open again Oct. 1 for fall chinook. The Nestucca will close for spring chinook Aug. 1. The Nestucca will remain open for summer steelhead all year and cut throat trout until Nov. 1. Fall chinook season begins Sept. 16. In tidewater, the area from the Cloverdale Bridge through Pacific City and the mouth of Nestucca Bay, opens to fall chinook Aug. 1.
