Gardiner Sanitary recall petition approved BY THOMAS MORIARTY The Umpqua Post
GARDINER — Twelve. That’s the number of signatures it took to recall the five-member board of the Gardiner Sanitary District in one of the strangest recall attempts in local history. Douglas County Clerk Patricia Hitt confirmed Thursday that the
county had approved a petition to recall Dennis Conger, Catherine Kent, Charlotte Hinshaw, Jackie Deggman and Marc Fullhart. The recall effort has been spearheaded by business owner Mack Holman, who has cited turbulent negotiations with the city of Reedsport and a lack of transparency in contracts as motivating factors.
The district has also been under pressure from the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality over a leaking sewage pipe that runs beneath the Umpqua River to the Reedsport treatment plant. The Gardiner board had attempted to buy the former International Paper property for the construction of its own treat-
ment facility, but eventually abandoned those plans as a condition of more than $2 million in state grants to repair the leaky sewage line. Jeff Doty, director of elections for Douglas County, explained that the low number of signatures needed was based on the number of people who voted for governor in the district during the last elec-
tion in which a governor was elected. “That starts a five-day period, day one being (Friday, May 9) where the public officer can resign or file a justification — their side of the story,” Doty said. “The third option is for them to do nothing.” If board members file state-

A Bureau of Land Management ranger walks past rows of rhododendron plants Saturday afternoon at the O. Howard Hinsdale Woodland Garden near Reedsport. The gardens, part of an estate once owned by the Hinsdale family across state Highway 38 from the Dean Creek Elk Viewing Area, are only open for a select number of weekends this year. The federal agency and a group called Friends of Hinsdale Garden are working on converting the property into a recreational day-use area.
Beauty of the Hinsdale Garden on display again BY THOMAS MORIARTY The Umpqua Post
REEDSPORT — Mother’s Day weekend gave South Coast residents and tourists alike a rare chance to see one of the area’s best-kept horticultural secrets. Thanks to Friends of Hinsdale Garden, rhododendron fans were able to get a firsthand look at the O.H. Hinsdale Woodland Garden, which is only being opened a few weekends this year. A wealthy businessman with pioneer roots, Hinsdale began populating the estate’s garden with rare rhododendron species during the 1940s.
Visitors stroll through the acres of gardens at the O.H. Hinsdale Woodland Garden, taking in the many variety of rhodedendrons surrounding the old house.
The garden sits on Spruce Ranch Island on the Umpqua River, just across state Highway 38 from the Dean Creek Elk Viewing Area outside of Reedsport. The Bureau of Land Management, which also operates the elk viewing area, bought the property from the Hinsdale family in the mid-’90s. BLM Field Manager Todd Buchholz said the agency plans to turn the garden into a recreational day-use area, but will have to tear down the dilapidated home to do that. The garden will next be open for visitors May 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Buses to the garden depart from the nearby elk viewing area every half-hour.
Crowd keeps cracking at Lakeside Crawdad Festival A pile of empty crawdad shells grows on a picnic table at Lakeside County Park grows as visitors to the Lakeside Crawdad Festival devour the creatures en masse Sunday afternoon. Organizers flew in more than 1,000 pounds of the freshwater crustaceans for the annual event, which drew visitors from throughout the region over Mother’s Day weekend.

Budget increase for services for special needs students BY THOMAS MORIARTY The Umpqua Post
REEDSPORT — Increased services for special needs students and a shift in funding for athletic equipment are among the changes in the new Reedsport school budget. The Reedsport School District Budget Committee approved the $12,567,906 budget during its May 7 meeting. One of the new additions is a Life Skills program within the district itself. Special needs students in the district previously had to travel to the Coos Bay-North Bend area to participate in the classes under the South Coast ESD. Now, the district will now contract with the ESD to provide those services directly. Board member Joe Coyne asked Superintendent Jim Thomas what it will take to get the new Life Skills program up and running.

“The space and the amount of accommodations (needed) is going to be minimal,” Thomas said. The committee also reallocated existing funds to help pay for football helmet inspections. Athletic Director Carey Jones said that football coaching staff had been paying for state-required inspections out of their own pockets. The board voted to transfer $1,500 from the out-of-area activities fund to cover the cost. Coyne voted against the transfer, only because of his position that a transfer of existing funds within the district didn’t need official approval. At Coyne’s request, the budget also included language stating that strong consideration be given to allocating any additional outside funds to arts and music.

A peek into the economic future of the South Coast BY CHELSEA DAVIS The Umpqua Post
COOS BAY — If the Jordan Cove Energy Project comes, analysts predict a multimillion-dollar spending snowball descending on the county. Chuck Deister, Jordan Cove’s labor liaison and state lobbyist, spoke at the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce’s luncheon Wednesday at the Mill Casino-Hotel. He said the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s draft Environmental Impact Statement is expected “any day now.” The draft EIS is a big step in the liquefied natural gas facility’s permitting process. “We are looking more likely than we have over the last 10 years we’ve been at this of going into construction right about a year from now,” Deister said. It’s estimated construction on the $7.5 billion proj-
ect ($6 billion for the LNG terminal and $1.5 billion for the pipeline) would take until second quarter 2019. During those four years, Coos County would feel a huge impact from the population and spending influx. “It sounds like we could get squashed in all this if we’re not prepared,” a woman called out during the chamber luncheon. “Are we behind the curve preparing for this?” The short answer, Deister said, is “no.” “But we want you to start thinking now,” he said. “You won’t see the bulk of the workers until 2016 or 2017. You’re going to have some time to get used to it.” At peak construction, there will be 2,100 people working on the LNG facility and another 1,400 working on the pipeline. Over the entire construction period, that’s an average of 930 working on the LNG facility and 837 working on the pipeline.

And each of those workers will make around $96,000 a year, which means huge spending potential in North Bend, Coos Bay and the surrounding county. E.D. Hovee & Company LLC, an economic and development consulting firm out of Vancouver, Wash., provides impact evaluations for natural gas, biofuel and wind projects throughout the Pacific Northwest. The firm analyzed Jordan Cove’s potential impact in a study last year. Analysts used spending pattern data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Economic Census, Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Consumer Expenditure Survey, and modeling data from IMPLAN. For the county as a whole, they estimate a $142 million direct spending impact during those four years of construction. That includes $71 million in North Bend alone. Throughout the county, analysts expect workers will spend tens of millions of dollars on gas, cars and car parts, dining, apparel and other retail, entertainment and recreation, health care and social assistance, and more. By the end of construction, that’s nearly $205 million spent in the county, including indirect spending. About 32 percent of Jordan Cove’s workforce will come from the South Coast, according to discussions with local labor unions, Deister said. The rest will be pulled from throughout the Pacific Northwest. Once the facility is up and running, 150 people will have permanent jobs at the terminal and pipeline. Their average annual wage is expected to be $75,000 to $80,000, plus benefits. Jordan Cove will also pay for 51 indirect jobs (sheriff’s deputies, firefighters, tug-

boat crews and emergency planners). The biggest concerns at Wednesday’s chamber luncheon revolved around impact to the local housing market, U.S. Highway 101 traffic and dredging. FERC requires Jordan Cove to provide housing so as not to disrupt the local housing market, which led to the company’s decision to build a workforce camp on the Al Pierce property under the McCullough Bridge. That proposal is currently under consideration. The company also wants to add as little traffic to the highway as possible. The company will put a turning signal at the highway’s intersection with TransPacific Highway to manage traffic flow, but they don’t want their workers driving to work every day. “They will be on buses (from the workforce camp),” he said. “We’re also looking at water taxis and we’re looking at buying some passenger rail cars on the rail line.” He also said dredging the channel for incoming LNG tankers is not required. Their drafts are shallow enough, he said, that additional dredging won’t be necessary. Construction workers typically don’t bring their families to live with them, so there will be little to no impact on schools, he said. “A good chunk of the labor force will show up with their own RVs or fifth wheels, as much as 25 percent,” he said. “The rest of the labor force leave their families in wherever they’re from — Eugene, Salem, Portland, Vancouver. We’re not anticipating a flood of kids that will need to be absorbed into the school districts.” Reporter Chelsea Davis can be reached at 541-2691222, ext. 239, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Remember military personnel on Memorial Day
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Fifteen reasons to support Hartman Top 15 reasons to support Roger Hartman for assessor. 1. Roger is not a career politician nor will he become one. 2. Roger believes in open and transparent government. He will restore the public access computers as soon as he takes office. 3. Roger believes that his job as a public servant will be to serve the public in their best interests. 4. Roger is knowledgeable about the statutes dealing with assessment and will follow their intent. 5. Roger understands the market dictates values and he won’t artificially inflate values. He will be unbiased and equitable in valuation. 6. Roger understands the legislatively created appeal process and his record on representing taxpayers in appeals reflects such. 7. Roger believes that tax exempt organizations are just that “Tax Exempt” and will not expend limited resources trying to disqualify well established exempt organizations. 8. Roger opposes using
County Counsel against the taxpayers in property tax appeals. 9. Roger will give you a straight up accurate answer regarding your property values and will have an open door policy. 10. Roger will treat the public as well as his staff with respect and dignity. 11. Roger will honor public information requests and not waste the District Attorney’s resources ordering him to comply with the request. 12. Roger will reduce the need for BOPTA appeals because he will not purposely overvalue property. 13. Roger will not create fictitious or non-existent personal property values to exceed the exemption amount of $16,000, as is happening now to MANY business owners. 14. Roger will not cause frivolous liens to be placed against taxpayers. 15. Roger stands on his past performance as a successful private sector business owner, developer and contractor. Vote Roger Hartman for Assessor and let him get it
right the first time! Larry Saccato Roseburg
Assessor’s race lost in distractions This assessor’s race is disturbing me. Will the outcome be determined over whether two computers ought to be available for the public or not? Will it be determined over issues in the last campaign? Are these issues relevant now or are they distractions? I am more concerned about other questions now. Can a newcomer really come in and lower everyone’s taxes? Does it really work that way? And if it does, what are the consequences? For example, if we all paid 25 percent less property taxes, doesn’t it follow that the county must shrink its services by about the same amount? What services do we want less of? Law enforcement? Courts? Parks? Health? Social Services? Building? Planning? Public Works? Library? Clerical? Museum? Juvenile? The present assessed values of my own two proper-
ties are reasonably aligned with current market values. I like living in Douglas County and I am thankful for its strong infrastructure. I see nothing to be gained, but plenty to be potentially lost, by changing assessors. Jon Riggs Roseburg BY JOHN MCDONALD Guest columnist On the flag flap In response to the recennt article about the flag flap in Winchester Bay, I would like to add the following. The gaff staff on any flag pole so equipped, is called The Point of Honor. It has been so for centuries and continues to be so today. I assume that it is The Point of Honor because the National Ensign always flew over the Place of Command on a ship. The Place of Command on every sailing ship has always been the quarter deck, which is located aft and under the gaff staff, hence the positioning of the National Ensign at the Point of Honor on the gaff. The positioning of all other flags is also ordained by tradition. For example when in a foreign port, the host country’s

Primary election wrapping up We are in the closing days of this election cycle. Ballots for the May primary election will be counted on Tuesday, May 20. If you don’t have your ballot yet, and you think you should have one, absolutely and quickly contact the Douglas County Elections Office at 541-440-4252, or toll free at 800-224-1619. To be counted, your completed ballot must be received at the Elections office by 8 p.m. on May 20. Postmarks don’t count, so don’t mail your ballot unless there is ample time for the postal service to do their job. If you are one of the many voters who hold their ballot until the end of the election cycle, there are many locations across the county where you can drop your completed ballot. These are listed in the Voters’ Pamphlet and at http://bit.ly/1mPASdy. This is a significant election. The results will have a lasting impact. At the county level, the county surveyor and county assessor will be elected. The winners of these races will

homes partner with the health care neighborhood to educate and support patients, connect to activities in the community that promote health, and actively engage patients in their own care. DFHC is working closely with the high-quality medical resources right here in our own community. These resources include internal medicine physicians, general and orthopedic surgeons, cardiologists, ophthalmologists, obstetric and gynecological care, ear nose and throat specialists, podiatry and mental health services. In addition, our local hospital offers laboratory, radiological, physical and occupational therapy, nutritional training, and other services. We are fortunate to have these services right here in Reedsport! DFHC is pleased to work with this group of professionals to provide care for you here at home. You may have seen the recent information distributed regarding the physicians providing these services – what an impressive group of professionals we have here to assist your primary care home with your care. Primary care homes are accountable to the state and federal governments for quality measures. None of this would be possible without an electronic medical record, which DFHC began using in October 2012. You may have noticed that your medication refills are being completed in a timelier manner than they have in the past, or that your provider can easily see what happened when you went to OHSU or a Peace Health facility outside our community. The electronic record used by DFHC allows us to share information easily with other facilities, under-
stand our population better, and to keep track of things so that your needs do not fall through the cracks. Primary care homes place an emphasis on prevention, and you will see more information on screening to catch problems early, vaccinations and promoting healthy choices. There is an emphasis on accessibility and expanded hours. DFHC has been open Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to noon since we opened in 1977. We also have appointments available most days until 5:30 p.m. DFHC has added new providers, Beki Gray, Family Nurse Practitioner, and Louise LeDuc, MD, who are working closely with Drs. Harris, Lion, Patin, and Petrofes to assist you in your care and to work with you towards better health. With the electronic health record fully implemented at DFHC, we will soon be offering you the opportunity to view your medical information from your own computer through MyChart. MyChart offers you personalized and secure on-line access to portions of your medical records. It will enable you to securely use the Internet to help manage and receive information about your health. With MyChart you will be able to communicate securely with DFHC, see your test results, request prescription renewals, view your recent visit information and keep track of your health. If you choose to participate, you will be issued a MyChart activation code and instructions which will enable you to create your personal MyChart login ID and password. Stay tuned for this next step in promoting a healthier community!
With Memorial Day nearly upon us, I think it’s important to remember why we set aside the last Monday of May to remember DOUGLAS the men COUNTY and VETERANS’ women VIEWPOINT who died while in military service. The United States Department of Veterans Affairs website includes the holiday’s history. “Three years after the Civil War ended, on May 5, 1868, the head of an organization of Union veterans – the Grand Army of the Republic – established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. Maj. Gen. John A. Logan declared that Declaration Day should be observed on May 30. The first large observance was held that year at Arlington National Cemetery, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. “It was not until after World War I, however, that the day was expanded to honor those who have died in all American wars. In 1971, Memorial Day was declared a national holiday by an act of Congress, though it is still often called Decoration Day.” The United States Census Bureau estimates that more than 330,000 veterans live in Oregon, and nearly 14,000 veterans live in Douglas County. Whether you’re a veteran, family member or supporter, you will be pleased to know that in addition to the ceremony and parade in Reedsport I mentioned in my last column, many other communities will be observing Memorial Day. Dirk Kruysman kindly shared information about Roseburg’s Memorial Day ceremony, which begins at 11 a.m. on Monday, May 26 at the National Cemetery Annex on the VA Campus. This will be followed by a picnic at the Stewart Park Pavilion for veterans and their families. The onehour ceremony will feature a flag ceremony by the American Women Veterans Association, laying of wreaths, and speeches by veterans. Donations for the ceremony and picnic are being accepted. For more information, or to make a
donation, contact Lloyd Kesterson at 541-672-2874. "Memorial Day is a good way to remember those who have passed away, those who have served in peace and war," Kruysman said. Jim Horton, USAF (Ret.), VFW District 9 Commander, provided me with a flyer promoting Sutherlin’s Memorial Day event at 11 a.m. Friday, May 30 in front of the Memorial Wall at Central Park. A 1015-minute ceremony will be followed by a picnic. For more information contact Darlene and Dutch Daniels at 541-459-3247 or 541530-2354. “Memorial Day is important,” said Horton. “You look at all the veterans who came before you, and Memorial Day is a way to honor and respect those who came before us and remind us of what they gave up. It’s a sign of appreciation and respect of what they gave and what it means to be a veteran.” The Glide community hosts “A Matter of Honor – Lest We Forget” on Memorial Day. The event starts at 10 a.m. at the Glide Community Center, 20062 N. Umpqua Highway. Veterans’ names will be read during the ceremony. The public is encouraged to attend. Refreshments will be served. For more information contact Bill DeGroot at 541-505-6526. A Memorial Day breakfast at Myrtle Creek’s American Legion Post 123, 252 S. Pacific Highway, is for veterans and families. The breakfast is 8-10 a.m. and free for veterans. Donations will be accepted for other attendees. For more information contact Roy Brogden at 541-8633857. God bless our veterans and God bless America. If you have questions or have more information to share with Douglas County veterans, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org m or call me at 541-5806178. John McDonald is a combat veteran with more than 15 years of military service. He currently serves in the Oregon National Guard. John is a member of the Douglas County Veterans Advisory Committee, the Patrick W. Kelley VFW Post 2468 and the Earle B. Stewart American Legion Post 16.

Letters FROM PAGE A4 national ensign is flown from the starboard yard arm. The top of the vertical mast is properly called the “truck” of the mast. As for what flies from the truck, it is often, as in the case of a merchant ship, the house flag, the flag of the company which owns the vessel. In any event, it is irrelevant to the discussion, because no matter what flag it is, or how high it flies above the national ensign, the truck is NOT the Point of Honor. The Point of Honor is on the gaff staff. This question has been an
issue in places other than Winchester Bay. A Florida yacht club raised a flag pole which had a gaff staff and the club properly placed our National Ensign at the gaff with the club’s burgee at the truck. Veteran’s groups protested vehemently. The dispute became so rancorous that it had to be finally settled by the Secretary of the United States Navy. In a letter, the Navy Secretary made it clear that the yacht club was indeed correct with their placement of the flags. Our National Ensign goes on the Point of Honor, the gaff staff.

three gaff-rigged flag poles that are placed proximate to where Sherman Avenue becomes one way. As often as I’ve been by them they have our National Ensign flying from the trucks of the poles. While some folks may find that gratifying, the fact is they are flying our National Ensign from a point other than The Point of Honor and as a consequence are showing dishonor to the flag. The Winchester Bay Rural Fire Protection District has hoisted all their flags to the proper positions on their flag pole. Eric Boe Winchester Bay

District track is Saturday
Braves baseball team is alone in second place
THE UMPQUA POST
Reedsport’s baseball team is playing its best at the right time. The Braves got a huge win at Oakland on Monday, beating the Oakers 6-3 in a game originally scheduled for last Friday. That put the Braves in sole possession of second place, a game in front of Oakland at 7-3 in Class 2A1A District 4. Since Reedsport now owns the tiebreaker with the Oakers, the Braves could wrap up the No. 2 seed with either a win over Glendale on Tuesday (results weren’t available by press time) or a win at home over Yoncalla in the regularseason finale on Friday. While that doesn’t guarantee a playoff spot, since the league only gets two this spring, it gives the Braves an advantage. If the Oakers finish third, they will have to survive a game at home against either the fourth- or fifth-place team to be able to challenge the Braves for second. The game between Reedsport and the other team that survives the league playoffs would be played at the home field of league champion Umpqua Valley Christian, who would face the winner of the Reedsport game for the league’s top seed to state. Reedsport’s win over
Spots at the state meet will be on the line for Reedsport’s track athletes as they compete in the district meet at Oakland on Saturday. The top two finishers in each event qualify for the state meet, and Reedsport coach Matt Smart has high hopes for a number of his athletes. “I’m very hopeful we’ll do well,” Smart said. “I have several kids I think have a great chance to reach their goals.” Leading the way is sophomore Mike Mitchell, the defending Class 2A high jump champion. Mitchell is seeded first in both the high jump and long jump and also is one of the league’s top sprinters. Pole vaulters Hayden Hinshaw and Tragen Smart have the top two marks in the district. Hinshaw is the defending state champion, but has had to work to stay eligible, Matt Smart said. Four athletes lead Reedsport’s girls squad — sprinters Kezia Eunice and Kaylynn Hixenbaugh, middle distance runner Cheyenne Lindberg and high jumper Bailey LaRouche. Together, they form a 4x400-meter relay team with a good shot at qualifying for state. Individually, Eunice is strong in the 200 and long jump, while Hixenbaugh is good in the 400 and long jump. Lindberg’s best event probably is the 800 and LaRouche ranks third in the district in the high jump and pole vault. Smart also is excited about Jessica Shields and Egan Glover and pointed out that in the case of both relays, a mistake by one team can mean another gets to go to state. “Everybody’s scores are zeroes going into district,” he said. “Now it’s what you do that day that will count. The competition starts at 10 a.m. Saturday. Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for students and senior citizens. The other schools in the district are Myrtle Point, Monroe, Yoncalla, Oakridge, Days Creek and host Oakland. Reedsport competed well at Oakland a few weeks ago. “I think the kids enjoyed

Oakland on Monday came courtesy of a strong pitching performance by Marquece Williams and one big inning on offense. Reedsport trailed 1-0 when it came to the plate in the top of the third inning. Shallon Zehe drew a oneout walk and Williams hit a single. Joe Hixenbaugh then hit a double to the corner to bring in both Zehe and Williams. Hixenbaugh advanced to third on a bad throw from the outfield and scored when Tyler Tresch hit a grounder and the Oakers tried to throw Hixenbaugh out at the plate. Tresch then came home on a double by Griffin Kaufmann, putting the Braves in front 4-1. After Wade Doane was hit by a pitch, Jordan Ragan hit an RBI single to complete the scoring barrage. Williams, meanwhile, allowed just three hits and one walk and struck out 11 batters. Only one of Yoncalla’s runs was earned.
SOFTBALL Like the baseball team, Reedsport’s softball team finishes the regular season at home against Yoncalla on Friday. The Braves beat Oakland 5-3 and likely will finish fifth, needing to win a road game in the Class 2A-1A District 2 playoffs next week to advance to state.

Rising river reduces success in salmon fishing A rise in the Umpqua River last week slowed fishing success for spring Chinook salmon and shad. As the river drops and clears, there should be an almost immediate improvement in the fishing for spring Chinook, followed by a much more gradual improvement in shad fishing. Recently, the hot bait for springers has been Brad’s Super Baits — an artificial imitation of a plug cut herring that anglers have been stuffing full of tuna canned in oil. Some of those offshore Chinook salmon the commercial fishermen have been catching have finally moved inshore far enough to be within range of sport anglers. A number of salmon were hooked near Winchester Bay last Sunday and Steve Rush of Springfield landed a 22-pound Chinook while fishing

Rough ocean conditions ensured that the initial three-day all-depth halibut opener was a complete bust. A few anglers managed to fish out of Newport, but very few halibut were caught. The next three-day all-depth opener will run Thursday through Saturday May 22-24. Hopefully, fishing conditions will be better. Tenmile Lakes has been fishing well for largemouth bass, but has also given up some decent catches of rainbow trout to anglers trolling spinner and bait combos. Al Kettle of Winchester Bay fished North Tenmile Lake for an exceptional catch of yellow perch including nearly 50 measuring at least eight inches. He was using pieces of nightcrawlers. Farther afield, central Oregon’s kokanee spots have been fishing exceptionally well.
