Grubb dispatching musical prowess STEVE LINDSLEY The Umpqua Post

On any Sunday, you can see Reedsport’s Sean Grubb playing with “Strange Brew” at Jitterbug ‘N’ Java from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. He also does a solo gig at the same venue on Tuesdays. The band, and Grubb, is making the rounds of local gigs, including a show on New Year’s Eve at the Lakeside Lodge. The band already has other gigs lined up. They were the “house band” at this year’s talent show. They may be playing at a patriotic concert during Reedsport’s Memorial Day celebration. They’ll be featured at Riverfront Rhythms at the

Umpqua Discovery Center on Aug. 7. Grubb is fairly well known in the area. He won the Reedsport Rotary’s “Coastal Douglas Has Talent!” last year, and was asked to perform again this year. He was a one man band for part of his February performance and also did an operetta. He is also a dispatcher for the Reedsport Police Department, sometimes working the overnight and late shifts. Grubb sings, he dispatches, plays a variety of instruments and said he loves doing it all. “I’ve been doing it for as long as I can remember,” he said. “As long as anybody who

“Strange Brew,” the house band at Reedsport’s Jitterbug ‘N’ Java, also participated in the Rotary’s talent show at Pacific Auditorium in February. Sean Grubb, center, is one of the five members of the band. He is also a dispatcher for the Reedsport Police Department.

Meeting the top cop

New schools budget similar to the last one STEVE LINDSLEY The Umpqua Post

By Steve Lindsley, The Umpqua Post

New Reedsport Police Chief Duane Wisehart meets with the public in his first “Coffee With A Cop” at Leona’s Sugar Shack Bakery. The chief said he’d like to have a get-together at least once a month at a variety of coffee spots.

Wisehart greets residents at “Coffee with a Cop” event STEVE LINDSLEY The Umpqua Post

He’s been on the job two months and Reedsport Police Chief Duane Wisehart spent Thursday morning meeting with residents. It was the first “Coffee With a Cop,” at Leona’s Sugar Shack Bakery. It’s something the chief wants to do once a month to get a feeling for his new community. “Most of the people who came, who I didn’t already know, came specifically to meet me and

say hi,” Wisehart said. “I don’t know that I learned a whole lot ... maybe just kind of expanding what I already knew. There are just a bunch of nice people here who are interesting in knowing people.” Wisehart, who came to Reedsport from his long-time job in Hemet, Calif., is already feeling comfortable with the smaller town. It’s his first job as a chief of police. He replaced the late Mark Fandrey, who died of a heart attack in July after three years on

the job. Wisehart began his new position January 27. Wisehart had been with the Hemet Police Department for 27 years. He worked his way to lieutenant and oversaw the investigations bureau. Now, he’ll move his family to Reedsport this summer. He hopes they’ll thrive in a smaller-city atmosphere. He said nobody actually expressed a lot of concerns about problems in Reedsport during the coffee get-together.

About two dozen people came out to Reedsport Community Charter School on Monday night o hear about, and comment on, a proposed 2014-2015 school-district budget. The district is expecting $6,033,525 in revenue, and has proposed expenditures of $5,739,001. “It’s based on the following assumptions:” Thomas said. “One, keeping the current programs we have. Secondly, it does not include any adjustments based on the collective bargaining going on now between our classified and certified.” So far, there are no proposed salary/step or insurance increases. The proposal keeps the fourday school week and proposes no furlough days for staff. Superintendent Jim Thomas said some additions proposed for the next school year include

adding a RCCS dean of students, adding two periods of math at RCCS, a .50 FTE library instructional assistant and a .80 nurse at Highland Elementary School. It’s proposed the district lose an special education instructor and instructional assistant at Highland. Other possible additions include a .50 Highland principal, counselor and dean of students. Another proposal is taking the .50 counselor at RCCS to full time. A highlight of the night was two Highland fifth-graders, Elsa Frakes and Jensen Mast, who presented a list of wants from Mrs. Wright’s class. Those wants included more physical education and music, more time to eat lunch, better food in the cafeteria, more playground equipment, more library time and bringing back the science class. The district’s next regular board meeting is April 16. The first budget committee is scheduled for April 30. The fiscal year begins on July 1.

Reedsport to discuss pot dispensary ban The Reedsport City Council is expected to make a decision at its April 7 meeting about whether to restrict medical marijuana dispensaries in the city. Legislature The Oregon approved a bill in February that would allow cities and counties to temporarily ban such dispensaries if they decide by May 1. If they decide to ban them, it would only be in effect for a year. City Manager Jonathan Wright said the discussion is likely to include land use ordinances. “In the commercial zone, it does allow pharmacies,” he explained. “But, it does not allow for the compounding of pharmaceuticals, which is an industrial use.” Wright said such dispensaries might be more suited for the industrial zone near the waterfront. “However, if they were to just do a retail setup, where (marijuana) was already prepackaged somewhere else and they just got it and then distributed to the public ... then that could be considered commercial and that could probably fit in one of our commercial zones,” he said. “If somebody were to ask me where the best place was to locate one of those, I would say it would

be in the city’s new mixed-use zone, which is located on the block just behind Highway 38 to the north.” The Oregon Health Authority has begun considering applications for medical marijuana dispensaries. As of Friday, a total of 22 dispensaries had been approved. The newly approved facilities are located in Portland, Corvallis, Bend, Salem, Eugene and Springfield. A spokeswoman said none had been approved for Reedsport, although 20 provisional licenses have been granted. Dispensaries with provisional licenses may not open for business, she said, until they have a security system in place that is approved by the Oregon Health Authority. Because the licenses are provisional, OHA will not be releasing their names or locations. Nineteen applications were denied last week for reasons ranging from incomplete information to

OPINION

Pot shops’ future unknown ODOT plan has long list of Douglas COASTING County projects HOME

Big questions face a couple of Reedsport political bodies. Oregon now allows people to apply for medical marijuana dispensaries. In previous legislation, cities and counties would not have been allowed to ban such dispensaries outright. The 2014 Legislature approved a bill that would allow local governments to delay decisions about dispensaries for a year, if they want. The legislature will look at the moratorium in the 2015 session to decide if cities and counties can continue such moratoriums. However, the city of Reedsport will have to act in the next month, if it wants to enact a moratorium on dispensaries. City Manager Jonathan Wright says he doesn’t know if the council will

and students. The board needs to develop a clear direction for the job(s). They need to spell out, in detail, what they expect from each of the positions and make that clear to district patrons and potential candidates. That wish list should also include clear guidelines on math and reading scores. There isn’t much time before the 2014-2015 school year starts, so the board has to work fast. Some of the board members have been critical of Thomas and, what they perceive to be, a declination of scores, curriculum and students. As students (and their parents) leave the district, it’s also important for the district to do what it can to figure out why the district is shedding students.

In the future, making sleep/rest difficult reimbursement from

Medicare will be affected by the quality of those scores. The results are publicly reported and compared to other hospitals. The leadership team at Lower Umpqua Hospital has been meeting monthly to evaluate each of the main survey questions and assess changes we can implement to improve and/or maintain our high scores. One of the main questions is “During your stay, how often was the area around your room quiet at night?” As earlier stated, the hospital is never silent, especially the nursing station. There are patient call bells buzzing, the ringing of the phone, monitor alarms, pump alarms, not to mention the staff have to talk to each other about the care of their patients. It takes a big team all working together to take care of our patients’ needs and they all interact with the providers, nurses and nurse assistants at the nursing station. In addition, it’s a rare

patient who sleeps throughout the night. We provide care, which causes noise, all through the night to those patients who need us. There are many ways to keep the noise level down; a remodel of the nursing station being the main one. Other methods deployed are: giving ear plugs to patients, replacing carts that rattle, placing rubber stoppers on doors that close loudly, decreasing the amount of over-head paging and installing a Yacker Tracker at the nursing station. A Yacker Tracker is a stop light that measures sound; green is good, yellow means you need to be mindful and quieter, and red means you are being too loud. This is a visual reminder of the current noise level for all members of the healthcare team. All of us at Lower Umpqua Hospital appreciate your patience while we get noisy with our remodel so we can be quieter after it’s completed.

instance, Joe Coyne was honored for his work as wellness speaker to community groups, a volunteer with the Red Cross disaster team, an author of healthrelated articles and as an advocate for mental health services in rural areas. He hates getting awards but I’ll bet you had no idea he did those things, did you? It’s nice that someone did know and told the foundation about it. And the honor comes with a $100 donation to the recipient’s favorite local charity, so even the most resistant winners are happy to be chosen. The rules are simple, just tell it like it is. Don’t worry about being fussy, just get the information out, telling what things the person does that benefit health and wellness and why they should be recognized. Same for the organization you want to shout out about. Send letters to Beacon Award, c/o Lower Umpqua Hospital Foundation, 600 Ranch Road, Reedsport, OR 97467 . Or better yet, drop off at the Lower Umpqua Hospital reception desk. Call Jody Henderson at 541271-6336 for additional information.

See it! There’s something new in history. The Umpqua Discovery Center has added 50 new photos to the rotating photo screen, which brings the number of images up to 300. It’s like looking through your family album, and full of adventure. The photos are always a big hit with visitors, but the locals are the ones who love scouring for familiar faces and memorable events. And it’s easy to do, even if you just have a few minutes to duck into the lobby. The screen is in the main hall, where there isn’t a cover charge, so you can stop by over and over.

Got it? If you know about a new business, new service or something going on around town, tell me about it for future What’s Up columns. Email me at nanciehammond@charter.net

State will manage mental health As of July 1, Douglas County will return its Local Mental Health Authority to the Greater Oregon Behavioral Health Inc. and will no longer provide mental health services for Oregon Health Plan, or Medicaid, patients. The Douglas County Commission believes that by moving mental health services out of county government these vital services will be able to better integrate with new delivery models and deliver even better care to Douglas County Residents. “Douglas County has a long and proud tradition of being a provider of quality mental health services,” Commissioner Susan Morgan said in a news release. “Our mental health staff has done tremendous work over the years to assure that these critical services were well provided to the community. However, with the formation of the coordinated care organizations new models of service delivery are

emerging that will be able to further increase the effectiveness and efficiency of community mental health services. I am confident that our community partners will be able to build on the solid foundation created by the county and build a model that is fully integrated with health care systems in the community.” Since late 2008, Douglas County has worked with community partners to coordinate physical and mental health. Together they have forged strong local relationships which will be the foundation of mental health services for the county. The news release also states the county’s highest priority will be to assure that there are no interruptions to critical mental health services. For more information contact Morgan at 541-440-4201 or Kevin Campbell, at Community Health Alliance, 541-490-3263.

LOCAL Grubb FROM PAGE 1

He was a one-man band at recent Rotary talent show knows me can remember.” His repertoire includes the harmonica (blues harp), guitar (bass guitar), drums, saxophone, piano, beatboxing and more. And, to top it off, he’s a husband and dad. He says he really enjoys spending quality time with his wife, Rayna, and daughters Rani, 9, and Kely, 5. Grubb, 38, has been in Reedsport for 13 years. He was born in Lubbock, Texas which, he is quick to point out is also the birthplace of Buddy Holly. Grubb’s dad was stationed there in the Air Force. After his dad’s tour ended he and his family moved back to

their parents’ hometown of Salt Lake City. He attended Utah’s twoyear Snow College, majoring in music.” “That, I found out later, is the only junior college in the country with a fully accredited music program,” He explained. “Our choir in high school did a joint concert with their show choir, and that was the day I decided I was ... going to Snow.” He said things have changed since college. “I went to college with the intent of becoming a music teacher,” he said. “I got my AS degree but marriage, kids and the high cost of universities caused me to put school on hold. Ultimately it may have been a good thing because finding a family wage job as a music teacher is nearly impossible these days, and it’s often the

first position to be cut when public schools face budget issues.” Grubb said the dispatching job is interesting and is able to make the transition from the high-stress job to singing and playing music in front of a crowd. “A lot of it is compartmentalization,” he said. “If you think about it, everybody has multiple personalities. How you deal with one person may not be how you deal with another person. Between music and a job and family, it’s just a matter of a slightly starker contrast of personality. Every one of these things utilizes aspects of my personality. It’s just a matter of shifting balance.” Then, there’s Strange Brew. The group is currently made up of guitar player and vocalist Jessica Hart from Reedsport; 19-year-old bass player Jonathan Moore,

drummer Dwayne Davison and keyboardist Rebecca Phillips from Florence. The group also features Grubb, who said it was almost love at first note. “I found out about it and decided to come down with my harmonicas and brought my guitar with me,” he said. “Jonathan showed up with his bass and one day, it was a little over a year ago, our drummer, Dwayne, showed up and just sat in for one jam session. “After awhile we started enjoying it so much,” Grubb remembered. “And we had a good sound and the first time Jonathan, Duane, Jessica and I played together, everybody in the room knew something had just happened. All of us. Smiles from ear to ear. ‘What in the world just happened here?’ Four complete strangers just played a song we’d never practiced before and it was incredible.” As a solo act, Grubb did a capella opera to win the Rotary talent show in 2013. His 2014 appearance showed off his other skills. He said he has an eclectic appreciation of music and, like many people, The Beatles continue to be his favorite band. He said he paid for a college by doing musical theater. He was also a disc jockey on the college radio station. He had a specialty radio show called “All Things a capella” once a week. Grubb says he has a lot of people to thank for where he is today. “The Reedsport Coffeehouse was my first professional solo gig,” he said, “and I’ll never be able to fully express my gratitude to Karen, Doug, Grace and the rest of my Coffeehouse family for all the ways they helped me to improve as a musician and performer. After the Coffeehouse closed, Jim and Darlene of

Sean Grubb won the Reedsport Rotary’s “Coastal Douglas Has Talent!” contest in 2013. He was asked back to perform at the 2014 show in February. He was a one-man band performing a song he wrote. The guitar case at the bottom is actually being used as a drum, being played by Grubb’s foot. He also sang opera, at the urging of the audience. Jitterbug 'n' Java welcomed me into their space, allowing me to explore, express and develop my sound and eventually booking me for a regular, weekly lunch gig.” He said the Sunday “jam sessions” at the venue allow him to grow as a talent. “My musical improvement over the last couple of years is immeasurable,” he continued, “and I owe it to the support of Jim, Darlene, my Jitterbug family ... and of course, my wife. “I literally can’t imagine where I’d be without her.” Would he like a recording career? “Ideally, I would love to be a recording artist,” he

said. “That said, there’s just something to be said for live performance. So, it would be recording and performing. With a wife and two children, touring is kind of a logistic question mark. If the stars aligned, and I had my dream come true, I would be a successful enough recording artist, and would fill venues adequately, that I could take my family on the road. I could teach my kids about American history by taking them to Philadelphia. (I could) teach them about the blues by taking them to New Orleans and Chicago and Austin and New York and Oklahoma City.” Don’t forget Lubbock.

And, he said, he’s concerned about a drug problem. “I would say, concern wise ... and this is obviously not isolated to Reedsport ... but there is a methamphetamine problem,” the chief said. “I wouldn’t call it rampant but it’s fairly popular, obviously. The unfortunate part for me, as the chief of police, is I come from a place where it was illegal to be under the influence of speed. Here, it’s not illegal.” He said, since possessing, manufacturing and selling the drug is illegal in Oregon, he’d like to see a bill that would include being under the influence of an illegal drug. “It’s just common sense to me,” he said. He said the current drug is nothing like the “speed” of the 60s and 70s. “A lot of the things back then were actual pharmaceutical amphetamines,” he said, “whereas the methamphetamine is kind of a garage version of that. I think a lot of people, if they actually saw how they made methamphetamine, in clandestine labs, I don’t think they’d put it in their body.” But, all in all, he said it’s nice to come to an area like Reedsport. He was asked if the area was the same as California ... smaller with the same problems. “No,” he said quickly. “I don’t think we have the same problems. To be fair, I think, because one of things I find refreshing about

Reedsport ... your officer to population is so good here. Your officers know everybody. I’m very impressed with that. They know the people who may be walking that line between bad and good. They know who to go talk to when things occur. You have that connection that you can’t have in a larger community.” The ratio in Reedsport is two officers per 1,000 people. That’s much better than the national average of 1.5 officers. Speaking of officers, the police force was down an officer when he got here. He believes he’s ready to make an offer to one office. And, he lost another officer two weeks ago to the Douglas County Sheriff’s office. He’ll need to hire for that position. He hopes to fill it with a person who could also serve as a School Resource Officer for the Reedsport School District. That’s a position Wisehart served in while he was in Hemet. He hopes to get federal grants to help fill that position in Reedsport. So far, he said, the experience has been great. “I’m happy to be here,” he said. “I’m enjoying it here. I’m very impressed with the community in general. I know everybody probably realizes this, but when you come from a bigger place, you come here and everybody’s involved and everybody’s willing to help.”

New chief needs to hire two police officers to fill staff “Nobody expressed any concerns about anything, as far as crime, or nuisance, or anything like that,” he said. “It was really low key. Really social.” Wisehart said, since he’s been here, he has noticed a need in some areas, including incidents of domestic violence. “I haven’t been here long enough to know if it’s seasonal,” he said. “I know in a lot of communities it’s seasonal where you’re cooped up due to the cold or the rain or the weather and people start getting on each other’s nerves and you get a little bit more domestic violence than normal. I’m used to having it in the summer, for some reason, because it gets hotter and tempers start flaring quicker. They have shorter fuses in the summer. It’s probably the opposite here, because you are cooped up so long in the winter.” He says he’s noticed other areas of concern. “I think we have a, not a large, but we do have a homeless population, or a transient population,” he said. “It’s not overly large. With a highway running through town you’re going to have people who end up here either on purpose or by no design. They just end up here sometimes.”

CEO doesn’t see problem financing Jordan Cove BY CHELSEA DAVIS Umpqua Post

COOS BAY — Now that the Jordan Cove Energy Project has federal approval to export liquefied natural gas to non-Free Trade Agreement countries, parent company Veresen Inc. is making moves financially. Don Althoff, Veresen’s president and CEO, spoke with confidence during a conference call following the U.S. Department of Energy’s Monday announcement. “I don’t think this is going to be a problem to finance,” he said of the $7.7 billion project (approximately $1.1 billion of which is project financing, owner’s cost and interest incurred during the four-year construction period). Before Veresen can make a “final investment decision” in early 2015, it needs an Engineering, Procurement and Construction contract, all off-take contracts “signed with credit-worthy counterparties,” and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approval.

Veresen looks for potential owners, partners Althoff wants Jordan Cove to be “completely sold out” by October or November. That means Veresen is analyzing "optimal ownership" and possibly bringing in partners.

“What we’re going to decide over the next nine months is how much we want to own of the plant, and then how much more equity do I need to raise?” Althoff told The World this week. Today, Veresen owns 100 percent of Jordan Cove, including the proposed marine facility, liquefaction plants, storage tanks, gas treating facilities and South Dunes Power Plant. The LNG facility will run capital costs of $5.3 billion, Veresen estimates. The Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline, which would feed natural gas to Jordan Cove through a 232-mile, 36-inch pipeline from Malin, will incur capital costs of $1.5 billion. Veresen owns half of the pipeline; the other half is owned by Williams Companies, a U.S. natural gas processing and transportation company. “I think owning 100 percent of it ... there probably aren’t very many options where that makes the most sense for us,” Althoff said. Jordan Cove’s potential customers have expressed interest in taking equity positions in the facility. “Buyers of the natural gas like to invest in these, as well,” he said. “If we do bring partners on, they would pay us for our percentage of the plant we’ll sell them, then we’ll use that equity to fund the rest of our equity, then go to the market and raise it if we still need more.”

Time to pay the bills Right now, Veresen just needs to pay its bills until Jordan Cove gets the go-ahead or the ax. That's why Veresen announced Tuesday it had entered into an agreement with a syndicate of underwriters who agreed to purchase 15 million shares of Veresen at $16.50 CAD ($14.85 USD) a piece to raise $247.5 million CAD (more than $220 million USD). The underwriters also get an overallotment option to purchase up to an additional 2.25 million shares. That would bring the total closer to $284.6 million CAD ($250 million USD.) The offering will close around April 3. Veresen’s common shares are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol VSN. “We still have a lot of money to spend to get (Jordan Cove) sanctioned,” Althoff said. “Part of what (the $284.6 million is) used for is to pay bills between now and this time next year when we come in and finance the project.” Once those bills are paid, Veresen can raise more equity to pay for the bulk of the project. “While financing won’t be without its challenges, we will have the benefit of falling on the path paved for us by other recent LNG export developments in the U.S. Gulf Coast,” he said.

Non-FTA approval a big win for Veresen In Veresen’s 2013 fourth quarter and yearend results report issued earlier this month, officials confirmed they were really gunning for DOE’s non-FTA export approval. Most of Jordan Cove’s potential customers do not have FTAs with the U.S., Althoff said. Singapore and Korea are the only two east Asian countries with FTAs, and their markets are small relative to the overall market, he said. Last fall, Veresen announced it had snagged three non-binding long-term Heads of Agreement with companies in Indonesia, India and an “eastern Asian country.” Japan is the world’s largest LNG consumer, according to Thomson Reuters, but

China is right on its heels — “...it looks like China will be a top LNG importer by 201820.” Since October, Althoff said Veresen has entered into other HOAs with “large-scale prospective customers, including various emerging and traditional LNG buyers throughout the Asia-Pacific region.” Veresen plans to wrap up binding Liquefaction Tolling Service Agreements and Pipeline Service Agreements by this fall. “This is a world-scale plant,” he said. “To try to think about selling to just FTA countries limited us too much.” Already looking at expansion Jordan Cove’s proposed initial LNG capacity — 6 million metric tons per year — also has its limits, Althoff said. The total amount of LNG capacity requested under Veresen’s various HOAs exceeds that 6 million. If and when Jordan Cove begins construction, Althoff said Veresen will immediately look into expanding the facility’s capacity to 9 million metric tons per year. “The marina, tankage, gas treating and power plant can all manage 9 tonnes per annum (metric tons per year),” he said. “What’s needed to expand the plant is more pressure on the pipeline and more trains. It does have the ability to expand. “I think as soon as I can get this thing through FID (final investment decision) we will start to look at expansion projects down there.”

FERC timeline possibly pushed back That’s only if FERC green lights Jordan Cove. Veresen and Jordan Cove both forecasted a FERC ruling by the end of the year, with construction starting in the first quarter of 2015. But that could be delayed. During a routine conference call between federal agencies last week, officials said Jordan Cove is changing its proposed wetland mitigation sites, meaning all of the land use tables in FERC’s draft Environmental Impact Statement will be affected. In turn, that’s going to delay FERC’s schedule while they analyze the new edits.

The new system can monitor license plates, the back seat of the vehicle and, of course, what’s in front of the cruiser. If the system works well, the department would get more cameras. Reedsport City Councilor Linda McCollom peeks inside a police cruiser with a new camera system installed. Police Chief Duane Wisehart and Sgt. Tom Beck took the council on a tour of the new system, which could be installed in all city police cars.

Dispensary FROM PAGE 1

Council may consider other restrictions, like buffer areas proposed locations that are within 1,000 feet of a licensed dispensary or a school. Wright said that’s a consideration for Reedsport. “You’re not allowed to have drugs within a thousand feet of a school,” he said. “So, we do have a buffer area already under state rules. That puts us out to right around the 7-11 area.” But, he said anything

Hinds FROM PAGE 1 work out a plea agreement, but have been unable to negotiate a deal. “In almost every case,” he said, “we talk about negotiations. It’s complex in the sense that we take the victim’s wishes into account and also, keep in mind, that we want to treat cases consistently. There have been discussions and negotiations but to this point we have not come to a resolution.” Hinds was originally charged in August 2012 in an incident in which police responded to a sexual assault complaint. He spent a night in jail. The police chief at the time, Mark Fandrey, said a female victim, whom he did not identify, said to police the alleged crime occurred at Hinds home.

beyond that might house a dispensary. Wright said he has no intention of making a recommendation to the council. “At this point, I don’t have a recommendation,” he said. That could change before the meeting. “I have to put together my staff report,” he explained, “which usually prompts me to do more research. I’m reserving the right to change my mind.” He said the council could consider other restrictions, such as creating buffer areas near parks. He also said the council may decide to take no action, which would open the door for the dispensaries. The council will hold a

work session at 5:30 p.m. April 7. Christine Shirley, who is the National Flood Insurance Program coordinator for the Oregon Department of Land and Conservation Development, will have a presentation. The regular meeting begins at 7 p.m. The council is also expected to consider an ordinance that would allow short-term, seasonal camping at Rainbow Plaza near the waterfront. Wright is also expected to name the employee of the month. There may also be discussion on a plan to refinance a Department of Environmental Quality loan for the city’s wastewater treatment plant.

BOWLING

Baseball team splits twin bill THE UMPQUA POST Reedpsort’s baseball team got its shot on a big stage Saturday, playing the combined Pilot Rock-Nixiyawii team at the University of Oregon’s PK Park. The Braves won the opener of the doubleheader 5-4, but lost the nightcap 3-2. Along the way they enjoyed tremendous support, coach Todd Harrington said. “We appreciate the support we got from our hometown crowd,” he said. “We really had a good crowd there. I was real impressed.” The fans saw the Braves pound out nine hits in the opener, including a com-

bined five hits, four runs and two triples from Haden Sams and Marquese Williams. Freshman Wade Doane added two hits, including a double, and drove in two runs for the Braves, part of a big offensive day for him, Harrington said. Williams pitched a complete-game five-hitter, with six strikeouts. But he also walked four batters and hit two, the only problem for the Braves on the day. In the nightcap, Griffin Kaufmann pitched a complete game, allowing six hits while striking out four and walking four. “I’m real impressed with our pitching,” Harrington said. “We did a real good job

Until a few more spring Chinook are caught or warmer weather arrives, most of the fishing interest is going to be directed at recently planted trout. This week a number of Douglas County lakes will be stocked, including Lake Marie (2,000 legal rainbows) and Loon Lake (1,500 legal rainbows). Before actually fishing a freshly-stocked lake, anglers should know the lake’s size and the number of trout being planted. For example, although a similar number of trout are slated for Loon Lake and Lake Marie, the 1,500 trout dumped into nearly 300 acre Loon Lake works out to slightly more than five trout per surface acre while the 2,000 trout stocked into six acre Lake Marie works out to more than 330 trout per surface acre.

Since 2012, Oregon has designated five marine reserve sites off the Oregon Coast to advance scientific research, and to conserve habitats and biodiversity. Studies of fish communities are one of the many ways ODFW is studying the ecological and socioeconomic effects of the reserves, Pierson said. Anglers unsure of whether or not they want to participate in the program might want to take a look at the outdoor section of last weekend’s Go! edition in The World.
