CLOVERDALE — The Nestucca Valley School Board of Directors unanimously approved a plan to erect a Tillamook Bay Community College satellite campus on Nestucca High grounds during its Aug. 8 meeting. The agreement had previously been shelved by the board of directors over questions on the building’s planned modular construction, but Nestucca Superintendent Kathryn Hedrick, with nods from several members, said that they have been assured of the quality of the modular structure. Funds for the 42- by 64-foot satellite campus will come from a 2007 general obligation bond. The classrooms will be erected on the southwestern part of the school’s campus where two tennis courts that are in bad condition now sit. The school will retain the one usable tennis court. Once complete, the satellite campus will house two classrooms, as well as a set of restrooms. Nestucca Jr./ Sr. High will be allowed use of the classrooms when college classes are not in session. But just when will the units be ready, said TBCC President Connie Green, remains a little uncertain. She said the school hopes to develop a timeline by the end of August. That said, she added that her best guess would be the classrooms wouldn’t be ready until December or January, but that weather or the timeliness of permits could significantly alter that prediction. One remaining issue of the technol-

TEAM PLAYERS! Nestucca Superintendent Kathryn Hedrick (at left) and Tillamook Bay Community College President Connie Green are working together to ensure a planned South Tillamook County satellite campus of TBCC meets both the college’s and the school district’s needs. The Nestucca School Board of Directors unanimously ok’d a plan for the new structure at its board meeting on Aug. 8. ogy-based classrooms is whether or not the college can install desks designed for both computer and general uses. The idea was previously pushed by Nestucca Jr./Sr. High School Principal Randy Wharton, who earlier told the Sun that the idea was that the desks would allow monitors to be lowered into the desks thereby creating a more natural classroom setting when computers aren’t at the center of the curriculum. But there is a hiccup. After interviewing past users of the desk on the

Nestucca fails to meet AYP CLOVERDALE — The report card’s in, but there’s work to be done! Though both Nestucca High School and Nestucca Elementary (K-5) met State of Oregon average yearly progress standards, grades 6-8 did not, resulting in a “not met” designation for the district as a whole. According to the 2010-11 preliminary report, the failing grade for 6- to 8-grade students, was a result of students with disabilities not meeting benchmark. In those grades, students with disabilities did not meet math, reading, academic status or academic growth standards. However, there is a silver lining. Last year even in the midst of a stellar rating, school officials whispered a word of warning — with rising standards it could be a different picture next year because of more stringent state standards. Yet, despite this, K-5 and high school did meet standards. “What’s happening is we’re raising the stakes and raising the expectations of kids. Overall, I think we’re doing an amazing job,” said Nestucca Superintendent Kathryn Hedrick. “Of course, do we want to get to the point where we always meet AYP? Absolutely. (The “not met” designation) is unfortunate. It means we need to look at it, but overall I’m impressed with the result and it’s something we can continue to build on.”

market that seemed to fit the bill, it was discovered that longevity is an issue. “It’s our intent is to (have dual use desks), but we don’t want to have something unusable in two to three years,” said Green. She added that research is ongoing to determine if a reliable desk to fit this bill can be found. “I’m glad were able to move forward with everyone on the same page and feeling like it’s the right thing to do,” said Green.

Funding for special ed at risk CLOVERDALE — The Nestucca Valley School District has learned that a portion of its approximately $151,000 in grants starting with the 2012-13 school year for special education could be at risk because of budget cuts to the district’s general fund. School Superintendent Kathryn Hedrick told the board that when a general education budget drops, the Oregon Department of Education examines the books to see if special education funds are being used to supplant funding for mainstream education needs. The reasoning, says Hedrick, is that the special education budget is made up of both grants and general education money. ODE is looking at cuts made over the last three years. But Hedrick said she is hopeful she can find compelling evidence to lower Nestucca’s liability. She said that while she is still in the research phase, one possible explanation she could offer (if relevant) is lower special education enrollment. Even if Nestucca does lose funding, Hedrick said it wouldn’t affect special education programs. “We’re not changing our special education program,” she said. “We’d have to take money from somewhere else.” And Nestucca’s position is not unique. “Across the state, this is happening to districts. This is when the economy died and everybody has to do different things,” she said.

Aquamarine awarded $100,000 By DEE MOORE for the Sun NEWPORT — Wave energy company Aquamarine Power USA, one of two international companies vying to put energy collecting power devices along the Oregon Coast, has been awarded a $100,000 matching grant by the Oregon Wave Energy Trust to gather data on the wave energy potential of the sea along Oregon’s coast. The grant is for an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler installation, which will measure the wave energy resource at a number of points along the coast, an essential first step in finding areas suitable for wave power projects. Aquamarine Power’s goal is to find a potential location for the installation of a demonstration array of three wave energy devices which the company aims to install by 2016. The company will match the grant with $100,000 of their own funds. This follows the award of a $50,000 matching feasibility grant to Aquamarine Power USA by OWET in November 2010. The two grants will support a study into the wave energy potential off the coast in the service areas of Central Lincoln People’s Utility District and Tillamook People’s Utility District. While Aquamarine focuses primarily on using what they call “near shore” devices strung approximately a third of a mile from shore to generate energy, Principal Power (www., the other company which is bidding to install energy gathering machinery off the Oregon Coast, uses deep off-shore wind turbines to generate electricity. Both corporations are waiting for the Oregon Land Conservation and Development Commission’s Policy Advisory Committee’s (OPAC) to complete it’s remapping of the state’s coastline which is expected to be finished sometime late spring or early summer of 2012. This mapping or “zoning” goes from the shore out three nautical miles and will determine where these companies will be allowed to put their equipment according to agency documents. (Ongoing results from this can be viewed at OPAC has been taking gathering information from numerous groups in an effort to determine high usage areas and designate these as inappropriate for energy collection.  But, while these groups have been at the table providing their information to the OPAC, little input has come from residents of the area — something that Pacific City resident David Yamamoto is working hard to correct. Just a few months ago he says he was a “novice” to wave energy. He drove to an OPAC public meeting in Garibaldi and quickly realized he had to spring into action. “I saw a glaring problem. The biggest special interest group of them all, the 100,000 residents of the Oregon Coast, had not been approached,” he said.  “I started making waves,” Yamamoto said, laughing at his pun. Though he isn’t against wave energy, he says he is concerned that coastal residents will wake up one day to find these devices placed along the shore without having had a say in the process.  He also says that this type of energy collection is in its infancy and there is little scientific information available at this time on what environmental impact the machinery used to gather this energy will have. “We are very early in the process,” he said. “It will be a decade or two before these companies can make any money from these devices.” His fears are not groundless.  

No one can yet say what the impact will be for the Oregon Coast. Even the experts are hesitant to commit an opinion as to the potential hazards. “I’m not sure if any of your questions have answers,” said Bob Paasch director of Oregon State University’s Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center (NNMREC), when asked for comment. “Truth is, we won’t know exactly what the impacts will be until we get some devices in the ocean and monitor them.” The NNMREC is a partnership between OSU and the University of Washington. OSU focuses on wave energy while UW focuses on tidal energy. Both universities collaborate with each other and the federal National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) on research, education and outreach, according to the program’s website. The research center data indicates that, during the higher heating use of October to April, Western Oregon has a 100 mega watt energy deficit each year. This energy usually is brought in to the area from east of the Cascades, increasing its cost to the utility company and the consumer.  The hope is this could be negated by wave power. One of the “near shore” buoy style collectors used by Aquamarine can power 40 homes. But, at what cost to the environment or the economy of the coastal communities? This is a question that community leaders like Yamamoto are asking and demanding answers to.   Aquamarine calls their collectors Oyster Wave Energy devices. These devices sit atop the water much like a buoy about a third of a mile off shore and reach down to the sea floor at depths between one and one and a half miles where they are anchored. They are strung together in groups of 10 or more and shoot pressurized water jets to an onshore generating plant which then creates electricity.  What’s at stake here for the residents and businesses could be their major source of income, tourism. It appears that this potential zoning of the ocean water could in fact prohibit tourists from using the coastal waters to sail, surf and boat where these devices are located. Not to mention that these energy devices will impact the visual landscape of the Pacific Northwest’s coastal beauty. While pointing out the potential benefits of wave energy, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory points out “ the onshore energy generators occupy the coastline taking up desirable residential property and making for ugly views.” Additionally, Energy Consumers Edge, a website dedicated to providing the consumer with the latest information on renewable energy, warns of other potential hazards and problems. “Beyond any visual impact we must be aware of the fact that storms will cause ocean wave generators to occasionally dislodge from their anchors and become serious navigation hazards. Onshore systems of any significant size will use miles of coastline and involve massive structures to channel waves and convert ocean wave energy into usable power,” the site warns. As the mapping moves forward, Yamamoto and his cohorts are doing so as well. He is currently involved in efforts to bring more information to coastal residents. One such effort will supply residents with visual aides, pictures of the ocean view with various energy collecting devices placed into the scene using photo editing software. This he hopes will give the people of the Oregon Coast a more informed view of what could be their future.

Mental abuse is also domestic violence I led a fairly sheltered life until I was 16 and witnessed the abuse of a close friend by her husband. I learned that the mental abuse was just as damaging as the physical, and that the damage can take many years to heal. If someone is hurting you, it’s not your fault. It’s never okay. All of us need to take a stand against domestic violence. – Rose Wharton Manager, Oregon Coast Bank Pacific City

ADU proposal elicits concerns By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun PACIFIC CITY — Residents chimed in during a presentation on a county-wide effort to make housing a more affordable proposition to everyone from firefighters to teachers to hospitality employees during a Pacific City-Woods Community Planning Advisory Committee-hosted open house on Saturday, July 30. After a three-year effort investigating ways that the county could encourage affordable housing, the Tillamook Workforce Housing Task Force Committee has unveiled the latest revisions to code that would allow the construction of accessory dwelling units. In its current form, the proposed rule would allow the construction of accessory units that could either be a separate structure or an add-on either to the main structure or above a garage. Structures erected in a residential zone are limited to 50 percent of the primary existing floor area or 1,000 square feet — whichever is greater — and those in a commercial zone are limited to 1,250 square feet. Each unit must feature a kitchen, bathroom and sleeping area “completely independent of the primary dwelling.” Though the revised language reflected perhaps the biggest request that came out of an earlier Pacific City-Woods CPAC discussion — that of making each application a conditional use — several residents were scratching their heads and wondering aloud if that is what they really wanted. In that vein, several community members wondered aloud if the planning commission would “rubber stamp” conditional use requests. “Conditional use in essence is not any different than outright because all it’s going to look at is is it going to meet (county) standards,” said CPAC Chair Elect David Yamamota. He also voiced concern over the possibility of altering the character of a community. “Especially in R-1, when you add something other than a single-family residence, are you changing the complexity of the neighorhood?” asked Yamamoto. “I would argue that maybe you are.” According to County Associate Planner Sarah Absher, this concern has been addressed in the current draft of the ordinance. “One of the big criteria is it will not alter the character of the area,” she said. She said that if it is evident that an ADU would alter the area, the application could be denied or commissioners could insert provisions such as “adding a fence or some kind of buffer to make sure the character stays.” Though, by definition, ADUs are not duplexes — hence the proposal to allow them conditionally in areas zoned for single-family dwellings — some worried that they would have the “effect” of duplexes nonetheless. “You can build an ADU that’s 1,000 square feet,” said CPAC secretary Bud Miller. “That’s essentially a duplex — it’s not a little 400 square foot apartment. I think it could change the decision to buy property (in the affected neighborhood).” One big difference, countered Ousele, is that per the proposed code an ADU would not be allowed to be marketed as a vacation rental. On another front, former CPAC chair Anne Price wondered if the section of the language describing the code’s

Page 6 • Pacific City Sun • August 12, 2011

intent that reads “provide for the general convenience of area property owners to accommodate family and guests with independent living quarters” was opening a can of worms. “That’s not the low income people we’re talking about here,” said Price. “It seems to be more like guest-house type facilities. I think it does open the door to build just so they have more rooms for the family when they come for the summer. I’m wondering why we went there.” Ousele said the intent was to allow ADUs for caretakers, but Price suggested that a previous section, which reads “accommodate unique or special housing needs and circumstances such as caretaker housing,” takes care of that need. Another bone of contention was parking. Yamamoto wondered if only providing for one additional parking space would be sufficient — especially considering it is quite possible the units would be rented out to a two-car family. The parking issue also served to underscore the value of having applications go through the conditional use process. “One thing article six allows the planning department as well as the planning commission to do is modify the standards as a condition of approval — including increasing the minimum lot size, modifying the location and number of required parking spaces, and controlling vehicle access points,” said Absher. “This is where testimony is important.” Even if the ordinance does go through, that might not be the end of the road for those opposed to ADUs. The new proposal would have no effect on communities governed by a homeowner association and relevant CC&Rs. Pacific City could possibly ban ADUs as part of the community plan — an action that Tillamook County would likely support through specific zoning rules for that area. However, the State of Oregon may have a say. “My concern is everything has to comply with (state) land use goals,” said Absher. The idea of making ADUs a possibility in unincorporated Tillamook County got its genesis in June 2008, when the planning commission heard resident comments that county code did not deal with one of the State of Oregon’s goals — that of addressing affordable housing. At the CPAC meeting, Planning Commissioner Gale Ousele said that the discussion promoted the commission to look at what they could do to help — and that meant looking at ways they could modify the code to encourage more affordable dwellings. She said the task force’s exhaustive research pointed to ADUs as the first thing communities look at when doing just that. Even Portland has gotten in on the act. Every home in the 2011 Portland Street of Dreams features an ADU. That said, Ousele noted that communities of all sizes were looked at. “We tried to craft an ordinance that was place-specific,” she said. Next up for the process will be at least one hearing hosted by the planning commission — the first of which can’t be held until DLCD has the file for a minimum of 45 days. Following a recommendation by the commission, the Tillamook Board of Commissioners will make a final decision on the rule adoption. Absher told the Sun that following a task force meeting on Aug. 18, the planning commission dates will be set.

Just can it! TILLAMOOK — Would you like to spice up your meals with homecanned pickles or salsa? Are you looking for information on canning tomatoes? Then plan to attend the class “Canning Tomatoes, Salsa & Pickles” offered by the OSU Extension Service on Thursday, Aug. 25, 6-9 p.m at the OSU Extension Service office in Tillamook. Cost is $12 for supplies and handouts if pre-registered by the day before the class or $15 for registrations the day of the class. Pre-registration is recommended by the day before the class to assure sufficient participants to hold the class. Classes with low registrations may be cancelled. Tomatoes and salsa must be canned following USDA recommendations for safety and must be acidified to prevent botulism so that they are safe to eat. Participants will learn how to make sure these products are safe and good tasting. All varieties of pickles must also be canned following USDA recommendations for safety. Quick pickles rely on a specific vinegar/water ratio to make the pickles safe to eat. Participants will learn how to make sure pickles and relishes are safe and taste good. Included in the class will be the opportunity for participants to can a jar of salsa or quick pickles to take home and share with their families. Canning recommendations changed significantly for tomatoes, salsa and quick pickle products in 1988 so home canners should check the copyright date on their canning publications. Grandma’s favorite pickle recipe may not be safe due to changes in vinegars. The OSU Extension Service has publications available at no charge to Tillamook County residents, including “Canning Tomatoes and Tomato Products,” “Salsa Recipes for Canning,” and “Pickling Vegetables.”  Copies of the most current Ball Blue Book and the 2009 revision of the USDA Complete Guide to Home Canning are also at the OSU Extension Service office in Tillamook. Contact the OSU Extension Service office at 2204 Fourth Street in Tillamook, 503-842-3433, to register or to receive the latest home canning publications. Other hard to find canning supplies available at the OSU Extension Service office include Clear-Jel A for fruit pie fillings; and citric acid for canned tomatoes.

A hall of beauty Pacific City Art festival returns for its 19th go round on Aug. 20-21 PACIFIC CITY — Whether by a flick of the brush, the hand of the potter or the eye of the shutterbug, art gives us unique ways to view our town, our region and our world. And that uniqueness will be on full display Aug. 20-21 when the Nestucca Valley Artisan Festival returns for its 19th presentation of wonders that will include original paintings, prints, sculptures, handmade glass works, photographs, handmade rugs, handcrafted textiles and clothing, handcrafted leather bags, original jewelry, cards, mixed media creations and more, large and small. The event, which will run from 10 a.m.-5 pm. on both days, will feature 16 local artists who will display and sell their works to the public. For many of the participating artists, this is your one chance to see their eclectic works outside of their studio. Organizers bill the event as a great opportunity to meet and talk with the artists and craftspeople who devote their time and energy to creating art that has fans coming back year after year. “I like the show because it features tremendously varied offerings. It’s not just paintings or pictures, and all of it’s handmade by people that live in the area,” said photographer Julius Jortner. Participating artisans work in the Nestucca Valley or nearby communities, such as Beaver, Cloverdale, Hebo, Lincoln City, Nehalem, Neskowin, Otis, and Pacific City. Featured will be: Martin Anderson, paintings; Marilyn Burkhardt, oils, encaustics, prints; Bill Cary, paintings; Elaine Darling, paintings; and mixed media; Karen Gelbard, handwoven jackets and scarves; Victor Guschov, mixed media, paintings; Barbara Haddad, colorful ceramic creations; Shirley Haines, textiles and rugs; Julius Jortner, photographs and paintings; Mike Loney, paintings; Ty and Tamara Mautner, fish prints; Donna Ludwig Peterson, paintings; Alita Pearl, handmade leather bags and jewelry; Kate Saunders, glass works and mixed media; Merrie Jo Snow, paintings; and Gerald Sticka, wildlife art. “I’m really excited about this year’s show,” said Snow, an impressionistic artist who splits her creative endeavors between “The Home of the Dory Fleet” and Ft. Myers Beach, Florida. It’s a

Enter the world of bright colors and shapely sculptures when the 19th annual Nestucca Valley Artisans Festival returns to Kiawanda Community Center, Aug. 20-21, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Above, Merrie Jo Snow works on a painting for the show in her studio. At right, painter Mike Loney is pictured with his 2010 display. division of labor that has served her well as one look at her paintings of Cape Kiwanda and Haystack Rock will confirm. She says the bright, tropical colors of Florida make their way into her images of Pacific City as the beauty of nature and the jolt of impressionistic painting and bright colors dominate the scene. “I can’t help but think of those (tropical) colors because they’re in the back of my mind,” she says. “When I go to paint the Oregon Coast they just pop out.” Several works, donated by each artisan, will be raffled away in a drawing during the event. Each prize will be accompanied by a ceramic vessel, handthrown and donated by Michael Soeby. Proceeds would enable the NVA’s continuing support of arts and art education in the communities and schools of the Nestucca Valley. Raffle tickets are $1 each or six for $5 and will be available at the festival. The value of donated works will range from $15 to more than $100.

The NVA festival is sponsored in part by the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts and by the Oregon Arts Commission. The festival also is on the map for the Pacific City Art Association’s annual Art Walk on Saturday. The Kiawanda Community Center is located on 34600 Cape Kiwanda Drive, in Pacific City, between the main bridge over the Nestucca River and Cape Kiwanda. Admission is free, and refreshments will be available. For more information, call Marilyn Burkhardt, 503-392-3333, Julius Jortner, 503-9657016, or the Kiawanda Community Center, 503-965-7900. “The show is great for the community,” said painter Donna Ludwig Peterson, who specializes in both pen-and-ink and oil seascapes and florals. “I thoroughly enjoy the art show because I get to visit with a lot of the other artists and people in the community. I hope everyone comes and sees what we have.”

COUNTY PLANNERS are reviewing The Grinnell Group, Inc.’s application for a development that will feature six townhomes and a 3,500 square foot restaurant.

County considers riverfront project Nestucca Landing would feature river view restaurant and six town homes By TIM HIRSCH of the Sun PACIFIC CITY — Developer Greg Grinnell of The Grinnell Group, Inc., shared his vision for Nestucca Landing, a proposal that calls for a 3,500 square foot restaurant and six townhomes at the July 18 Pacific CityWoods Community Planning Advisory Committee. The development would be erected on a 0.6-acre parcel that abuts Pacific Avenue and Sunset Drive, just west of the Beachy Bridge. Grinnell said he sees the project as helping to fill the need for more nomaintenance second homes. He added that with its location on the river and proximity to downtown, it’s the ideal spot for Pacific City’s next dining destination. Grinnell’s goal is to get the project started by the spring of 2012 with at least a portion of it finished that summer. At this point, Grinnell has not committed to building both the townhomes and restaurant at the same time or in phases. As part of his vision, Grinnell is

planning on leveraging the riverfront view for four of the units, as well as the restaurant. The remaining two townhomes, which would be constructed behind the restaurant would be oriented towards the ocean. According to the tentative plans, the riverfront townhomes would feature 1,985 square feet of living space split between two levels and the western facing units 1,785 square feet. The structure is also designed with county plans to create an oval-shaped turnaround at the intersection in mind. Grinnell sees the restaurant site as one that could link downtown Pacific City with Cape Kiwanda. Amongst the other features of the development would be subterranean parking located below the restaurant. Grinnell is also hoping to build a fishing dock that would remain open to the public. The site riverbank, which rests west of the Nestucca, is a popular fishing hole and has long been used by bank fishermen. But whether a dock comes gets approved by the county or not, Grinnell said he has no plans on limiting fishing access along his property. “Our intention is not to limit access to the river — it’s to enhance,” he said. First though, the development will have to overcome its first hurdle with the Tillamook Planning Commission. Grinnell has applied for a variance for the 50-foot riparian setback. Tillamook

County associate planner Sarah Absher said she is trying to schedule a planning commission meeting for Sept. 22, but, at press time, had to get a commitment from enough commissioners to ensure a quorum. If the planning commission either denies or modifies the variance, plans for the development will have to be altered, she said. “We’ve done all the necessary studies, and we feel we’ve addressed all these obstacles,” said Grinnell. “Now it’s a matter of getting a favorable ruling from the planning commission so we can add the project to Pacific City.” It won’t be until the riparian setback variance goes through that the remaining issues — including an exception to the height limit — will be addressed by Tillamook County planners. Grinnell has also applied for a Planned Development Overlay, which allows developers to increase maximum heights up to 35 feet. According to the county’s land use ordinance, planned developments are designed to “permit greater flexibility and creativity in the design of land development than is presently possible through the strict interpretation of conventional zoning and land division ordinances.” For more information on planned developments, visit the Community Development section of the county’s web site, which can be found at www.

All-depth halibut fishing on the central coast ends; nearshore fishing reopens NEWPORT — Fishery managers are opting to not reopen the central coast alldepth Pacific halibut fishery this year because of insufficient quota. The central coast fishery, from Cape Falcon just north of Manzanita to Humbug Mountain near Port Orford, is the most popular halibut fishery among Oregonians. However, with only 11,000 pounds of the original 41,763 pound quota remaining, there are not enough fish for additional days in the all-depth fishery. Instead, the remaining all-depth quota will be transferred to the nearshore (inside 40 fathoms) fishery, which reopens Saturday, Aug. 13, 2011. “Reopening the nearshore fishery will allow for additional halibut fishing without exceeding the Central Oregon quota,” said Lynn Mattes, sport halibut project leader for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. “While 11,000 pounds isn’t enough for an additional all-depth day, it should add several weeks to the nearshore fishery, which generally proceeds at a slower pace.” The summer fishery opened Aug. 5 and 6 with a quota of 41,763 pounds, which included adjustments from the spring all-depth and nearshore fisheries. Catch during the first opening was approximately 31,000 pounds. As in the all-depth fishery, anglers participating in the reopened nearshore fishery will not be allowed

Artful sounds

The harmonious one-two punch of memorable melodies and mesmerizing multi-media may be what draws the headlines at a Richwood performance, but it’s the original scores that separates this duo.

The duo was recently featured on a NPR segment. Lead guitarist Photo by Tim Hirsch Richard Paris honed his craft at his Tulsa recording studio where he attracted the likes of Ronnie Dunn, Roy Clark, and Henry McCullough back when. And lead vocalist and songwriter Bobby Wood is leveraging his many years of music composition and producing multi-media displays to create a show that, according to Wood, “dips in and out of genres without staying long enough to be easily defined... or more importantly, confined!”

AWARD WINNING PIANIST TOM GRANT will perform at Tillamook County Libary on Aug. 15. The free concert starts at 6:30 p.m. in the library’s Hatfield Room.


Jazzin’ up the library Tom Grant to play at Tillamook Library Summer Reading Program event Tillamook — Pianist Tom Grant will strike the final chord of Tillamook County Library’s 2011 Adult Summer Reading program when the awardwinning musician tickles the ivories and shares insights into a career punctuated by four number one albums on Adult Contemporary and Smooth Jazz charts. The free Aug. 15 performance will run from 6:30-8 p.m. at the library’s Hatfield Room. It’s not a secret, exactly. But you’d probably never guess, hearing Tom Grant today — at his peak on the new CD, Delicioso — that a career so full of popular and artistic success almost didn’t get off the ground. Today, Grant is a master pianist, accomplished singer and songwriter who makes sophisticated use of the Smooth Jazz he helped to pioneer. He’s been on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and had four Number One albums on Adult Contemporary and Smooth Jazz charts. A polished entertainer, Grant has touched listeners worldwide because his subtle, skillful music is always cheerful and accessible yet deeply resonant. In his voice and touch on piano, listeners hear the perfect marriage — the improvisational jazz fusion that first propelled him to the top joined with the warm, melodic grooves that have kept him there. First, though, he had to get out of a small lumber town in Oregon. He was raised in Portland by a tap dancing father who taught him drums and piano and let him listen to jazz in his record store in the city’s black entertainment district. Yet he

didn’t realize music would be his life and took a high school teaching job right out of college. Good thing musicians remembered the shy, soft-spoken piano player! In 1970, Native American saxophonist Jim Pepper swept Tom off to New York where they turned a peyote chant into the pop hit, Witchi-Tai-To. Soon, Grant was touring and recording with some of the top names in jazz, including Miles Davis’s fiery young drummer, Tony Williams, who was shaping the new sound of jazz-rock fusion. Those brilliant, demanding bandleaders forced him to step up. When he got back to Portland 10 years later, Tom took what he’d learned, filtered it through pop music of the day, and, in 1983, began presenting a new sound of his own. A series of his albums — including “Mango Tango,” “In My Wildest Dream” and “The View from Here” — topped Smooth Jazz charts for nearly 20 years. Along the way, he started his own label and toured Japan and Indonesia behind recent releases that include “Life Is Good” and “Solo Piano.” His compositions were also used in TV shows and films. He continues to play frequent charity events and appear on compilation CDs for many worthy causes. Most importantly, he continues to delight listeners with his happy, believing sound. So climb on in! And ride some deep American grooves — top down, sunny melodies in your hair, and plenty of harmonic depth under the hood. The program will be held in the Hatfield Community Room at the Tillamook County Library, 1716 Third Street, Tillamook, OR 97141. Nonperishable food donations will be taken at the door. Food donations will be given to the Tillamook Food Bank. Seating is limited to the first 150 people. For additional information, please call the Tillamook County Library at (503) 842-4792.
