Creative kids Morgan North, shown here working on her own personal “masterpiece” (at right) was one of 83 students who got their turn at working with professional artists thanks to the Community Art Project’s Slug Soup, an annual week-long art camp held this year from June 27-July 1. Students from pre-school through high school were spread out amongst 16 classes taught by professional, working artists. “The success of the program is thanks to the high-caliber of instructors,” said Kim Cavatorta director of the program. “The kids really produce fine art — not just crafty stuff. They really love it.” At the conclusion of camp, the parents and community members were invited to a celebration of the week’s creativity that was highlighted by artwork displayed from the week’s activities, as well as student performances. Nest year’s Slug Soup is slated for June 25-29. For more information on CAP, visit

Up in flames By SALLY RISSEL for the Sun The Tillamook Burn was one of the most spectacular and most devastating forest fires of the 20th century. The famous Tillamook Burn was really a collection of intense fires that occurred in 1933, 1939, 1945 and 1951. The fires burned more than 550 square miles. People in Forest Grove could feel the heat of the fire and were kept busy smothering hot coals and burning leaves that fell from the red haze. Tillamook, Wheeler, Garibaldi and other small towns in Tillamook County were under a pall of smoke. Ashes lay like dust on the streets and buildings and a gray-black cloud penetrated even closed windows and doors. The first fire started August 14, 1933, when a bullbuck tried to get out just one more log before the requested closure of operations due to exceptionally dry weather. The fire swept out of control rapidly, and spawned other blazes for the next 10 days before erupting. A great orange wall of flame 18 miles across the front of the fire exploded out of the treetops. All the fires merged into one enormous inferno, belching smoke and flames. A cloud 40 miles wide mushroomed into the sky. The fire created its own hurricane and hot air rushed up and was replaced by fresh air, bringing more oxygen to the flames. The wind created by the inversion was frightening with its roar and force. It threw burning old growth Douglas fir trees 250 feet tall and swirled them through the air. In one 24 hour period, the fire killed more than 12 billion board feet of prime timber. Amazingly, only one death occurred and that was Frank Palmer, a CCC tree ranger, who was crushed by a great living tree uprooted by the hurricane. The people of Oregon voted in 1948 to authorize bonds to pay for a 15-year rehabilitation program. Volunteer groups planted more than 250,000 seedlings. Private timber companies joined the effort as well. This story of the Tillamook Burn and the reforestation is documented at the Tillamook Forest Center in the heart of the Tillamook State Forest. A 15-minute movie is a powerful dramatic re-enactment of the Burn through the voices of the people who witnessed and fought the fire. The Tillamook Forest Center is a first-class facility with hands-on interpretive exhibits,

Rain dampens progress on Nestucca Fire’s new station HEBO — Construction of Nestucca Fire’s $1.8 million administrative center and fire hall is finally underway! Though groundwork was expected to happen in tandem with a celebratory ceremony on June 20, the start of construction was delayed until July 7 because of wetland issues that hadn’t been signed off by the Oregon Department of State Lands. Tillamook County okayed the permit on July 6. Project manager Doug Olson said the smaller of two wetland areas was enlarged about 10 square feet, but that didn’t affect the planned building site. Dave Roberts Construction is currently doing the site work — a task that Olson said is expected to last about two more weeks. Because of the wet weather, workers have not been able to move as swiftly as hoped. Once that’s in place, GeoTech Foundation Company - West will begin construction of seismic piers.

The piers are necessary because a fire station is deemed an essential facility, and, as such, is held to higher standards by Tillamook County. All told, Olson said the two projects should be done within six weeks, at which time all the remaining details on the architectural plans should be worked out. The fire district has also signed an agreement with Tillamook People’s Utility District to bring power into the new station at a “maximum” cost of $21,000. That number could be much lower — Olson, who also served as project manager for the neighboring Cedar Creek Child Care Center, said the initial cost for that facility was $37,000 but PUD refunded half of that. “That (21,000) is a guaranteed max,” he said. “If it costs less, they will refund the difference. If it’s more, they pay the difference.” According to Olson, general contractor Dalke Construction is estimating a move-in date of December 2011 for the new facility.

Nominatons sought for annual Strategic Vision Awards TILLAMOOK — The Tillamook County Futures Council is now calling for citizen nominations for the 2011 Strategic Vision Awards. Nominees should be individuals or organizations with projects or ongoing activities that are helping to move Tillamook County toward achieving the 2020 Strategic Vision Goals in one of six categories: Growth & Development, Economy, Natural Environment, Society & Culture, Health & Human Services, and Youth & Education. Winners will be announced at the 4th annual Vision Awards Banquet on Oct. 6. This year’s event will be held at the Pelican Pub in Pacific City starting with a social hour at 5:30 p.m. The evening highlights the programs and accomplishments of all the nominees, whose efforts in their communities and county-wide are promoting positive change in Tillamook County. The Futures Council was appointed in 1997 by the County Commissioners

and tasked with developing not just a community vision but also establishing goals and laying out strategies to help guide the county in the years ahead. Through youth forums and community workshops, the Council solicited community input and created a road map for the future into 2020 and beyond. The annual Awards Banquet event recognizes and celebrates the progress made with the help of dedicated individuals who share the Tillamook County Vision for the Future. Visit banquet.htm for more information and to download a nomination form, or contact the Tillamook County Futures Council, PO Box 6, Nehalem OR 97131, 503-3686770 or toll free 877-814-2669 to request a form. Forms will also be available at the Futures Council booth at the Tillamook County Fair Aug. 10-13. Nomination forms should be postmarked no later than Sept. 2, 2011.

Public forum to address threat of elder abuse TILLAMOOK — Domestic violence and abuse is not limited to young people. It also is found among senior citizens and the elderly. It may be the continuation of long-term spousal abuse or it may result when seniors are injured or taken advantage of by caregivers or family members. It may come in the form of physical violence, emotional or financial abuse. All such behaviors fall within the realm of what is commonly called elder abuse and, according to Kimberly Theobold, a J.D. Adult Protective Services worker with NorthWest Senior & Disability Services in Tillamook, it is widespread in Tillamook County. Theobold will discuss the signs of elder abuse, how to recognize it, and how, as individuals and a com-

munity, we can empower and protect our elders, when she appears at a free public forum sponsored by Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center. The forum is set for Tuesday, July 26, 4-6 p.m. in the Mark Hatfield Room at the Tillamook County Library in downtown Tillamook. There is no charge for the event and refreshments will be served. To ensure sufficient seating and food, reservations are encouraged by contacting Romy Carver, at 503-842-8294, extension 209. The Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center is a nonprofit organization working to create a community free from domestic and sexual violence. To contact the center, phone 503-842-9486 or 1-800-922-1679 or visit

PACIFIC CITY — What started out as a gathering of friends for a weekend of fun at the beach has turned into a full-blown festival of music! During a weekend dubbed “The Pacific City Folk Festival,� award-winning folk artist Dan Weber will take his captivating story telling to Pacific City for two free concerts — the first at Oar House Bar & Grill, 34455 Brooten Road, on Friday, July 29 for a 9 p.m. to midnight show, followed by a 6-9 p.m. gig at Twist Wine Co, 6425 Pacific Ave., on July 30. Weber is one performer that’s living proof that you never know when a music career will bloom. He got his start three years ago at the age of 40 when he took inventory of the many songs he had penned and talked himself into performing at a local open mic opportunity. A few performances later he found himself in a songwriting contest, which proved to be the first of many that earned him top honors. Amongst his 2011 awards are West Coast Songwriter’s “Best Performer� and “Best Song� for “Goodbye to Dad.� He is also the 2011 Pacific Northwest Winner of the West Coast Songwriter’s Performing Songwriter Competition.

Weber has opened for national acts including Tom Russell, Danny Schmidt, Jonathan Byrd, Ben Bedford, and Peter Mulvey. Stories form the backbone of what Weber sings and shares. He likens his act to sitting around the campfire sharing stories with friends. “I like to connect with people through my storytelling. One of the things I think is rewarding is people coming up and sharing their own stories.� He says though his music is thematically more country, his sound is a little more folky. Joining Weber for the Friday night concert will be folk artists Jerry Towell and Dan Dover. New Hampshire native Tom Arnold will add his mastery of words to the group during Twist Wine’s performance on Saturday, July 30.

ENTERTAINMENT at the 2011 Clover’s Day included juggler David Reid (above), the smiling faces of grand marshals John and Carol Griggs (below, left) and the toe-tapping sounds of Whiskey Puppy.

CLOVERDALE — Hundreds of Fourth of July weekend revelers lined the streets of Cloverdale for a downtown parade, music, children’s activities and family fun on July 2. Jointly sponsored by the Pacific City-Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Nestucca Valley Lion’s Club, the event’s main attraction featured close to 50 floats from 38 entrants said Chamber President Jeremy Strober. “I thought it was just a fantastic, well-attended, fun community event,” said Strober. “I appreciate how many came out to participate in the parade.” Winning trophies at this year’s parade were Healing Waters Church of God of Cloverdale

(youth), The Hip Hoppers 4-H Club (animal entry), Cal Cartman driving his antique car (non-profit), Hebo Bar & Grill (commercial), Northwest Old Iron Club member Terry Jones (antique tractor) and B&P Hebo Express (judge’s choice). Other highlights of the parade included a “Kiddie Corner” sponsored by Chinook Winds Casino featuring a bounce house and — new this year — juggler extraordinaire David Reid. “The bounce house was a big hit. Kids were there to the very end,” said Strober. “And the juggler was a great addition who really captured the attention of the kids. I heard a lot of ‘Oohs’ and ‘Ahhs’ from all the kids in attendance.”

The cable has landed! The TE Subcom Dependable, above, delivers electro-optical cable to a shore station at a beachside manhole on Pacific Avenue. The cable connect will eventually connect to two underwater observation sites, part of the Ocean Observatories Initiative, bringing real-time data of the ocean’s seafloor to scientists, classrooms, and citizens. At right, John Reardon, of L3 MariPro, christens the new landing during a beachside ceremony on July 13. Pacific City — The Ocean Observatories Initiative program landed the first of two high-bandwidth cables on July 12. The cable will stretch to undersea observatories — this one will rest off of the shore of Newport, Ore. The cables will eventually bring real-time data on the ocean’s seafloor to scientists, as well as into classrooms, homes and even mobile devices. At press time, officials were planning on starting to pull ashore the second cable, which will reach the Axial Seamount on the other side of the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate, on July 15, starting at 7 a.m. The landing is a critical link between the extensive array of next-generation sensors located in the ocean and on the seafloor that are scheduled to go live in 2014. The OOI, a program funded by the National Science Foundation, is planned as a networked infrastructure of sensor systems that will address vital science questions by measuring physical, chemical, geological, and biological variables of the ocean. On Wednesday, July 13, officials were greeted with a packed house at Kiawanda Community Center during an open house designed to fete the landing of the cable. During the open house, Tillamook County Commissioner Mark Labhart lauded OOI’s willingness to work with locals in making sure the community was involved — and not disrupted. “I want to thank (OOI officials) for working with the local community,” he said. “It’s not just dory fishermen, it’s (community members) that live on this ocean. A lot of times, we feel government doesn’t listen to locals. You did that and as a result you have a community that is very supportive of this project.” The Regional Scale Nodes (RSN) component of the OOI establishes an interactive network of ocean observing sensors, instruments, and moorings in the Northeast Pacific ocean connected by 900 kilometers (approximately 560 miles) of electro-optical cable and designed to operate continuously for 25 years. During the installation process, the fiber-optic cable is placed on the ocean floor by a commercial cable ship, the TE Subcom Dependable. This week the cable was pulled ashore through a previously installed conduit and was “landed” on the beach at Pacific City, where is will be connected to a shore station located one mile north. Remaining at-sea installation will place through much of August. The cabled network features two submarine cables extending from the shore station to two main study sites: one cable reaches Hydrate Ridge, approximately 120 km. (75 miles) to the southwest of Pacific City, and loops back on the continental shelf to link cabled moorings of the Coastal Scale Nodes Oregon Line along the OOI’s Endurance Array site. The second cable extends 500 kms. (310 miles) west to the Axial Seamount study site on the Juan de Fuca Ridge. Each primary instrumented site will offer two-way communication between land and sea and will be supplied with up to 10 gigabits per second of telecommunications bandwidth and eight kilowatts of power. Data will be collected from the sea surface to the seafloor and transmitted to shore in near-real time via the internet. “With the landing of the OOI undersea cable we see connection of a tangible piece of the OOI’s unique infrastructure that will bring to shore data from multiple sensors and instruments and change the way we conduct ocean observation for decades to come,” said Tim Cowles,

Vice President and Director of Ocean Observing at the Photos by Tim Hirsch Consortium for Ocean Leadership. “This is a significant step forward in the construction of the OOI and moves us closer to our goal of providing the sustained observations needed to help us better understand and manage our oceans.” The OOI will provide research scientists, educators, students and the public with unparalleled access to the physical, chemical, geological, and biological phenomena of the ocean. Sustained ocean observations and interactions that span decades rather than days will allow ocean exploration and discovery to move into previously unimaginable realms. Greater knowledge of the ocean’s interrelated systems is vital for the increased understanding of their effects on biodiversity, ocean and coastal ecosystems, ecosystem health and climate change. According to John R. Delany, Director and Principal Investigator of the OOI Regional Scale Nodes and University of Washington Professor of Oceanography, the study sites selected off the Oregon Coast offer a representative suite of natural phenomena that occur throughout the world’s oceans and seafloors. “The OOI regional cabled network will enable scientists to conduct local investigations of such global processes as climate-influencing ocean currents, active earthquake zones, creation of new seafloor, and rich environments of marine plants and animals,” he said. Progress on this component of the OOI has been taking place for many months. In March 2011, the program completed the Horizontal Directional Drilling process necessary to install the power and data undersea cables at Pacific City. HDD is a common technique used to install cables, pipelines, fiber-optic ducts and other types of buried infrastructure under environmentally sensitive areas or technically difficult sites. The first step in the HDD process involved drilling under the beach and surf zone to install two horizontal sub-sea bed conduits running from the beach to an offshore location so that the two cables will remain buried from the offshore location to the beach manhole. The University of Washington is leading the OOI cabled component effort and has contracted with L3 MariPro Inc. of Goleta, Calif. for the design and building of the OOI RSN primary infrastructure. The OOI Program is managed and coordinated by the OOI Project Office at the Consortium for Ocean Leadership, in Washington, D.C., and is responsible for construction and initial operations of the OOI network. In addition to the University of Washington, three other Implementing Organizations are responsible for construction and development of the overall program. Woods Hole Oceanography Institution and its partners, Oregon State University and Scripps Institution of Oceanography, are responsible for the coastal and global moorings and their autonomous component. Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, with is partners University of Maine and Raytheon Mission Operations and Services, is responsible for the education and public engagement software infrastructure.

Refuge hosts special events ORETOWN — Summer Events at Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge continue through the month of July with two diverse opportunities to learn more about the refuge, which is located on Christensen Road off of Highway 101, approximately six miles south of Pacific City. On Sunday July 24, from 2-3 p.m., join Tillamook County Historical Society President Sally Rissel for a walking tour of the refuge and discover the history and culture of Nestucca Bay. The next event is set for Saturday, July 30 from 8-10 a.m. Members of the Audubon Society of Lincoln City will present Fascinating World of Birds. Members will host a bird-watching hike and talk with participants about the birds of the refuge. Both events are free and sturdy walking shoes are recommended.

PACIFIC CITY — All children may be gifts, but not all are gifted with loving homes. And while children placed in orphanages worldwide are at a disadvantage, Romanian children are facing their own unique challenges. It was with this weighing heavy on her heart that in 2007, missionary Karleen Dewey, penned “The Place of Mourning Doves.” She will be signing copies of her chronicle of the challenges and successes of Romanian children on July 28, 5-6 p.m. at Pacific City’s Deja-Vu Studios, 33105 Cape Kiwanda Drive. Handmade bags crafted by Romanian orphans that are participating in the Floricea Project will also be featured — with 100 percent of the funds raised going back to the orphans. The program is designed as a way of giving Romanians a job skill they would not otherwise acquire. “The Place of Mourning Doves” details Dewey’s experience with Romanian children, which includes 20 years of helping to build a more nurturing environment for the hundreds of children stuck in state-run orphanages in Romania. “It’s a terrible thing to neglect or abandon a child,” she says. “I want people to understand the little of where the children come from. Physically and emotionally orphanages are very difficult. I want people to under-

author Karleen dewey will make an appearance at Deja-Vu Studios, 33105 Cape Kiwanda Drive, on July 28, 5-6 p.m. to sign copies of “The Place of the Mourning Doves,” her chronicle on the trials and triumphs of Romanian orphans growing up in institutional care. Call 503-965-0005 for more information. stand the little miracles that happen in this one corner of the world.” As an outreach of Mercy Ministries of Colorado, which Dewey started with her husband Fred in 1986, Karleen said she has seen more than 70 children get adopted. After being stirred by a “20/20” television feature aired in October 1990 on the plight of the thousands of Romanian children that suffer in state-managed orphanages, the couple were moved to action. They have been ministering to the needs of the children there since 1991. Though they didn’t know what to expect in those early years, Karleen said it wasn’t long before God began to open doors.

“Everything we do there with the volunteers and staff is with one goal — and that’s to assist the children.” In the book, Dewey share her personal journey with the orphans. It’s a journey in which these longsuffering children — some of which became handicapped from being confined to a bed — experienced love via many volunteers. It is this love, says Dewey, that enables them to finally experience joy. “It’s an emotional book. I want people to understand the little miracles that happen in this one corner of Romania. The book is all about how God has worked in our lives and how he’s led us to help the children.”

Missionaries share their mission of love PACIFIC CITY – A group of four ministries in leadership positions at Mercy Ministries of Colorado will share their stories at a special presentation on Sunday, July 31 at Pacific Coast Bible Church’s morning worship service.

Smaller coho quota likely means shorter season By PAT GEFRE for the Sun Here I sit at the keyboard with Dory Days in the offing for this next weekend, July 15-17, and it has been raining now for two straight days. Where is our summer? We had perhaps the wettest winter and spring in recent history, setting records for rainfall several months, and still the rainy weather just won’t let go. I have noticed that traffic on Highway 101 is down dramatically, visitors to our area are hard to find, and last Saturday night I saw something I thought I would never see in July, the streets of Pacific City were almost void of traffic. Hard to say if it’s the weather, the economy or high gasoline prices — truth be told it’s probably all three. Whatever the reasons, there hasn’t been as many folks as usual visiting our area for the time of year. Hopefully that will all change this weekend with the Dory Days celebration. Last year’s weather for this event was spectacular and made for a great celebration. July 1 marked the closing of Three Rivers to spring chinook, while July 2 was the opener for the ocean coho season. So far, the coho have been spotty with lots more native coho than hatchery fish being caught. Only fin-clipped hatchery coho may be retained for now. The quota this year is about 30 percent of last year’s quota, so this initial coho season may not last for long. There will be another coho season in September and, during that season, ODFW has decided to allow fin-clipped and wild coho to be retained. To my way of thinking, the latter is a much better way to manage the fishery. The mortality rate on this first coho season, in my opinion, is huge. I think it to be a terrible waste of the wild stocks having a catch-and-release fishery. There are days when all you catch are wild coho while never catching a fin-clipped coho, and there are days when you have to sort through six to get two wild fish. Regardless, catching and releasing wild coho is a 50 percent proposition at best. According to the regulations, wild coho are not supposed to be netted or handled. Yeah right, trying to see if a fish is fin-clipped or wild while it’s flopping around in the water is very difficult and many just net the fish to be able to see if it has a fin or not and to be able to remove the hooks.

Using barbless hooks helps as far as releasing, but it also adds to the desire to get a fish in the net before it gets loose on its own. Netting the fish removes lots of scales and is harmful to the fish. Many of the coho released are let go bleeding — that can’t be helped as these fish are very aggressive and brutal when they strike. My opinion is that many wild fish are destroyed in the pursuit of the fin-clipped fish. My belief is that if you kept the first two fish caught — be they hatchery or wild — there would be far less mortality on wild coho stocks. It just makes sense that sorting through six to eight wild fish to get a couple of finclipped fish is not healthy for the wild population. There are few chinooks being caught, but those that are, are for the most part being caught in deeper waters with the use of downriggers. I have talked with fishermen that have caught chinooks from 90 to 150 feet deep. That’s not to say that there aren’t a few up in the water column chasing the same baits as the coho, because last week I knew of a couple chinooks that were caught while fishing shallower for coho. Bottom fishing for ling cod has remained strong all season with the biggest challenge being able to get a good drift on the cod beds. If there is no drift on the current, it’s hard to cover enough ground to be successful and likewise if the drift is too fast, it’s hard to stay down on the beds with bait. Conditions have to be acceptable to have good success. Sea bass have been a bit spotty this season — there have been good days and then a few days that the bass just seem to disappear. My favorite way to fish for them is to find a finning school of bass near the surface and cast to them with light tackle. I think that is more fun than bouncing the bottom for them like you would for ling cod with heavy gear. Halibut season was short and sweet. Lots of halibut caught meant the quota was met quickly. Both the inshore and the all-depth fisheries for halibut are now closed. There will be a limited alldepth halibut fishery starting Aug. 5 and 6 and continuing every other Friday, and Saturday, (Aug. 19 and 20, Sept. 2 and 3, 16 and 17, 30 and Oct. 1.) Those are the set dates for the limited season. If quotas are met early however, some of the later dates could be cancelled — that is a call that ODFW will make upon analyzing the data.

Seniors are also victims of violence Domestic violence knows no age limits. An older person’s physical and financial challenges may make them even more vulnerable to domestic violence and less able to seek help. If you suspect that an elder you know is the victim of domestic violence, talk to him or her. Offer to accompany the person to meet with an advocate at the Women’s Resource Center or a social service agency. Together we can help our elders live safely and independently. – Don Weisel Tillamook Senior and Disabled Services
