Some Salmon Harbor docks to be revamped BY STEVE LINDSLEY The Umpqua Post
The Salmon Harbor Management Committee gave the OK for a plan to revamp some of the wooden docks that had been slated for closure next year. Two docks in the east basin have already been closed, due to deterioration of the wood. Harbor manager Paul Stallard says he’d like to try to refurbish other docks, as he creates a master plan to keep, or replace, some docks in the east basin; the area visitors see first as they drive into Winchester Bay. “Basically, we’ve come full circle on this dock project,” Stallard told the committee. “I think that we all agree that we want to keep our front door open. That’s our goal here. “To do that, we’re basically going to need some time.” Stallard asked the committee to invest some money into the wood docks with lumber and tie rails. He also said he would apply to the Oregon State Marine Board for public access grants that would, at least, allow for the replacement of some of the gangways leading to the docks to improve the handicapped access. He suggested work could be done during the winter season. “Do a little bit every year,” he said. “We need to, probably, buy some lumber for the decking and make sure that they’re safe.” The closure of two of the wood docks, Stallard said, should free up some money for other docks. “We could concentrate on docks C, G and H and get as many years out of them as we can,” he said. There has been much discussion about the wood docks. Former harbor manager Jeff Vander Kley had proposed closing five wood docks, but had also floated a plan that would have allowed the harbor to replace some east basin docks. That plan would have required the cooperation of the Port of Umpqua and Douglas County Commissioners. Vander Kley presented the plan to the port and to commissioner Susan Morgan, the board’s coastal liaison. A planned meeting with the entire threemember commission, apparently, never materialized. “In fairness to the county,” committee chairman Jim Bruce said, “they’re, basically, bankrupt. And I believe, in my heart they can’t put anything in. It would mean they would have to cut other services, and they’re going to have to do that, anyway.”
Doug and Sandy Taylor from Dallas, Ore. won Best in Show during last weekend’s Kool Coastal Nights in Winchester Bay. The Taylors have restored a 1932 Ford coupe.
Classic cars contributed to coastal Kool BY STEVE LINDSLEY The Umpqua Post
There’s a reason drivers come to Kool Coastal Nights in Winchester Bay. “Camaraderie,” said one participant. “I’m new to the area and, so far, I’ve met a lot of people.” More than 300 classic cars lined Beach Boulevard for the event. Doug Taylor and his wife, Sandy, from Dallas, Ore. took the Best in Show this year for their 1932 Ford three-window coupe. “The project’s been going on for about four years now,” Taylor said. “Starting two years ago we did a lot of indoor shows. We did the L.A. Roadster Show, Sacramento Autorama, Portland, Boise. It was kind of fun doing that, but then what we really wanted to do, and the wife wanted to do, is to do outdoor shows. Take it. Actually drive it and don’t trailer it. We’ve just been having a ball this weekend.” He said the car has been a project. “It’s everything,” he said. “We started by building a chassis, running gear, added the body and just built it up.” They worked with a builder in Wilsonville.
“It’s stock appearing outside with a really fancy paint job,” Taylor said. Jeff and Tina Parrett from Walterville, Ore. were last year’s Best of Show winners with their orange 1955 Chevy. They came back this year just to show the car. There are reasons they enjoy it. “The people and the cars,” Jeff said. “All of them amazing.” They acquired the car out of love. “My wife’s and my favorite car was a ’55 Chevrolet,” he said. So, we looked and looked and looked about 20 years ago and found this one up in Washington. It was a complete basket case. So, we brought it home and my 4-year-old son and I immediately finished tearing it apart.” The car sat for 15 years before a neighbor suggested restoring it. “With his help, we put it all back together and painted it in his garage,” Parrett said. The color was done for a reason. “We’re Oregon State alumni,” he chuckled. “So, we always wanted something with a little bit of orange in it.” They couldn’t bring themselves to adding the black. “We wanted it to look a little bit original,” he
said. “So we went with the two-toned white over orange.” Chuck and Joanie Summers of Eugene brought their black 1959 Chevy Impala to the show. The car, which is one of several the Summers own, has an interesting story. “We found that car on eBay,” Chuck said. “It was in Three Lakes, Wisconsin in a garage. Unlike horror stories about purchasing items from long distance, this one proved to be the real deal. “It just looked beautiful in the eBay pictures,” Chuck said. “I ended up calling the guy and making a deal on the car.” Summers said it took about three weeks to arrange a transporter to go the Northwoods location to pick up the car. It was worth it. “I’ve always loved ’59 Impalas,” he said. “The tail lights, the front end ... the big batwings on there, the bubble top and being black with the red interior. It’s just irresistible. “This car draws a crowd like none other. We took it to Reno ... we only saw three other ’59 Impalas out of all those cars. You see a lot of ’55

There will be live music from The Worn Out Frets. The event is presented by the Winchester Bay Merchants Association and sponsored by the SEE DOCKS, PAGE A6 Reedsport/Winchester Bay
Chamber of Commerce. There will be more than 50 Pacific Northwest artists, including Plein Air Artists, metal artists, jewelry, soap, hand made leather items, water color artists, woodturning, metal forging, handpainted clothing, handmade baskets, Oregon Wave Energy and more. Food and wine vendors include Harbor Light Restaurant, Fairy Floss cotton candy, Tammy’s

ments. Several times she has completed commissions for works: a wall mural at the Dune Memorial Chapel, one of the Umpqua River Lighthouse hung in the office of then Speaker Arnie Roblan and an award to Cycle Oregon for utilizing Reedsport as one of its sleepover cities. Her work can be seen at several galleries, including Orca Galleries at 532 Fir Ave. in Reedsport and at Coastal Ceramics at 159 South 20th St., Reedsport.
Crab season nets 18.1 million pounds THE UMPQUA POST The Dungeness crab season officially ended Aug. 14 and, while it was a good year, it was not a record year. Hugh Link, the executive director of the Oregon Dungeness Crab Commission, says the commercial season got a January start. “It typically starts in December,” Link said, “but we had a little late start to let the crab fill in a little bit, so that we could put out the best crab on the market.” Crabbers brought in 18.1 million pounds for the season, which is the sixth best harvest in the past 15 years. The record, set back in the By Lou Sennick, The Umpqua Post 2004-05 season stands at 33.7 milA 2012 photo of a Dungenous crab being off loaded from the fishing boat lion pounds. In the most recent Loraine C last April in Charleston. 10-year period, crab landings have
averaged 20.3 million pounds annually. This year, Link says the port of Brookings had the highest catch numbers, with landings over 4.8 million pounds. Newport closely followed, with 4.2 million pounds. Astoria was third on the list and Charleston was fourth. Winchester Bay delivered 463,578 pounds. That was good enough for seventh place. “The total value at that port,” Link said, “was $1,424,210.” Link pointed out that not all the crabbers out of the bay may deliver crab back to the bay. “Some of the boats in Winchester Bay, depending on where they fish ... might not deliver back into Winchester Bay,” he said. “They may go into one of the

The landings in Winchester Bay may not be indicative of all the boats from Winchester Bay.” Though the season is closed, crab fishermen have two weeks to bring their remaining pots into port. However, Oregon law requires that pots left in the ocean at the end of the season must have the bait removed and the lids open so crab can climb in and out at will. The season remains closed until Dec. 1, so crab can “fatten up” after the mid-summer molting process.

Reedsport tries again for sidewalk funds The city of Reedsport will try again for a downtown sidewalk project in 2018. City manager Jonathan Wright told the Reedsport Urban Renewal District Advisory Committee the city has to start again, after the project was sent to the bottom of a list of state-aided projects in the region. “It’s something we have been, as a city, going and supporting this ODOT (Oregon Department of Transportation) project as part of the STIP (Statewide Tra n s p o r ta t i o n Improvement Program),” Wright told the committee. “They do it on four-year cycles and there are a number of projects that get loaded into the hopper and then ... they prioritize these projects.” The Reedsport project has changed places with a project to improve the climbing lanes on Interstate 5 at Robert’s Mountain, south of Roseburg. “Throughout this process we have been number two,” Wright continued. “At the last meeting our project dropped to the bottom of the list and was put on as an alternate.” He said the state decided to make I-5 a priority. “The federal government is saying that Oregon’s not investing enough in their state facilities, or federal highways, and may be subject to some type of mandate coming up,” Wright said. “So, they’re trying to show them that, hey, they’re going to start investing in these things.” Wright said the total STIP pool is just over $12 million. “The I-5 project, which is only for one side of Robert’s Mountain,” he continued, “(has) a price tag of $7,800,085.” The Reedsport project would have widened sidewalks in the downtown area from Sixth Street to U.S. Highway 101 to improve pedestrian and bicycle improvements. “This project will address existing gaps in the bicycle and pedestrian network,” Wright read from the proposal, “and will complete this section of the transportation network. These bicycle and pedestrian facilities will also be enhanced and the theme of old town will be extended by construction of 7-foot sidewalks, adding conduit for future street lighting and landscaping.” The project, as proposed, would require purchasing three homes in the right-ofway.

assess their next step, Chris began looking back at every job he had ever done, whether in the hospital or in the military: “It was an epiphany for me— in every position I had ever held, the most fun I had had was when I was teaching other people.” With that life direction in mind, Mr. Campbell left the Army, joined the Oregon National Guard, and went back to school to receive his Master’s in Education from Willamette University. His first full-time high school teaching position was as an English teacher at Spray High School in central Oregon, but he’s happy now to be putting down roots on the Oregon coast. “I absolutely love Reedsport,” he says. “It reminds me a lot of growing up in Independence—it was a logging town until the mills closed and the economy dried up. It was tough, but we had strong traditions and everyone scrambled to keep the town going. I can sense that same strong sense of community here. Everyone I’ve met has been really welcoming and friendly, and I can see that the school is the center point of the community. We’re definitely looking forward to being here for a long time.”
Mr. Campbell hopes to create a place at RCCS where kids look forward to learning. “I want students to see my classroom as a place where they can feel safe and happy, where they can come in to tackle the work of becoming better readers and writers and see how it will make their lives better,” he says. “I often say that reading saved my life. When I was young my family had really hard times financially. It would have been so easy to fall into bad company, but everyone in my family read, so I did that, too. It broadened my horizons, and I think it really saved my life.” Mr. Campbell’s wife, also named Chris Campbell, will be teaching second grade in Florence. Two of their three adult children have joined them here on the coast (Jake, a student and a member of the Air National Guard, is in Salem, but twins Hannah and Holly live here), along with a huge mutt named Skye and a little border collie called Gracie. “I’m overwhelmingly honored to be invited to [teach the children of Reedsport],” Chris says. “Teaching isn’t just a job for me, though it definitely supports my life—it’s my calling. I am honored to be trusted to do it.”
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Action needed to stop SHMC’s inaction Remember how just a couple of months ago Salmon Harbor Management was going to get a joint public meeting with all three agencies, SHMC, the Port of Umpqua and the three county commissioners to offer a plan to get some new docks or move some of the docks in the west basin to the east basin in Winchester Bay? It was to be a meeting where the voters could attend and maybe we would get some action. Remember that our outgoing harbor manager had developed a plan and was directed to contact the county about a financing plan to do something about it. They did not do either. SHMC correctly assumed that if they just waited awhile the pressure to do something would die down and they were right. They never scheduled the meeting. They never presented any plan to the county commissioners. They just went back to upgrading their RV resort. I attended the last SHMC meeting on Aug. 21. They discussed how they needed to upgrade the Wi-Fi at the RV Resort because some of the RVer’s were not happy with the wi-fi they were getting. So SHMC quickly approved close to $7,000 to improve it so the RVers would be happy. They allocated this money without a second thought about where they were going to find the money. Of course they did not approve one penny to do anything about the docks in the East Basin. Basically they say that they plan to see if they can find some money and/or some time to fix up a couple of the wooden docks but of course they did not approve one dime to do it. It’s the same thing they said last year. They just talk about trying to find some money or some time some
day. Then we all go away as they know we will and that’s it for another year or until we get blind-sided by the next notification that more docks are being closed. At the meeting I asked Jim Bruce if they had presented the plan to the county commissioners and after a long answer about financing and how difficult the situation was and about how little money the county had and about his extensive experience in finance, I had to remind him that my question was not about his experience in finance. My question was “Did you present the plan to the county commissioners?” They had not. SHMC is right back to where they were before they promised to present a plan to the county commissioners. I told them that it was very hard to sit and listen to them appropriate thousands of dollars to upgrade the Wi-Fi for their resort customers while our docks in Winchester Bay slowly empty of boats and continue to rot. All you are going to get from this board is platitudes about how they are going to look into what can be done. They are going to make us promises that they don’t fulfill. They are never going to actually allocate a dime for the East Basin dock repairs or present a financing plan to move some docks to the East Basin or for any new docks. There is not going to be any change to their attitude about docks in Winchester Bay until this board is changed and there are county commissioners who at least are willing to talk to us. I emailed Susan Morgan, our area’s county commissioner, back on June 13 asking for her help with the docks. She emailed me back on the 10th saying she wanted a few days to review and so some research and then she would set up a meeting with me. That

was over two months ago. Not surprisingly I never heard from her again. At the same time I emailed our other two county commissioners and they also took no interest. Though both of them are elected at large and voted for by all of us they have no interest in discussing a boat presence for Winchester Bay. They just say to talk to Susan Morgan. Clearly she does not want to talk about it either. So whatever momentum we had is gone. It’s all back to business as usual, improving the RV resort and promising to do something about dock repair or replacement in the bye and bye maybe some day. In other words they’ve turned their attention back to business as usual and we have gone away as they expected us to. The only bright spot is that our new harbor manager, Paul Stallard, makes it clear that he would like to do something about this. He can do nothing without the board authorizing it and of course they have not allocated one penny even for the modest repairs Paul Stallard would like to do to keep some of the wooden docks and a boat presence in Winchester Bay. This issue is probably over with. To do anything we would need the support of the Reedsport/Winchester Bay Chamber of Commerce, the Winchester Bay Merchant’s Association and an entirely new SHMC and a couple of new County Commissioners. We would need a large turnout from the public and other civic organizations in the area. To date we have not gotten that support and the current SHMC sees it at every meeting when there are only three or four people from the community in attendance. Art Dever

Big finish ahead! Slide into the last event of the summer this weekend at Art by the Bay. I love this event because every booth has something handmade and it’s the artist who sells it to me. Some of my favorite jewelry pieces are from Art by the Bay vendors. Mikayle Karcher is the featured artist this year and if you haven’t seen her ceramic work, you should make a point of looking for it. She is so talented! You can also have a fab lunch, get a chair massage and have a session with a real psychic to round out the day. I always stock up on soaps and lotions, candles, beads and pickled veggies that are gastronomic artwork. I love to see what the silversmith has been up to all winter. He handcrafts each bracelet, ring, necklace he sells and they are simply beautiful. I like that there are high end items like he creates, but something for every budget down to the $2 earrings made by the woman who says she doesn’t care about the money, she just loves to make them and talk to the people who buy them. The whole shebang is under big tents so you don’t have to worry about your hair in the wind or help pick up the earrings as they fly around in the breeze. Sept. 1 is also the kickoff of the Crab Bounty Hunt. Catch a tagged crab and it might be the big winner. A tag with the winning number is locked in the vault at Umpqua Bank, and it’s twin is glamming up the wrist of a crab wandering around the bay. Catch a tagged crab and take it to Sportsmen’s
Cannery to be registered, then mangia! Call all your out-of-town friends and relatives and tell them to get down here! The fishing is fantastic, the event is great fun and the weather is perfect — everything we love about this place! Share it.
Cash bonanza! The Reedsport / Winchester Bay Chamber of Commerce divvied up $42,000 and change and spread it throughout the community to more than 25 organizations, projects, and charities, thanks to the windfall from the DuneFest Charity Auction. Have you ever wondered what you would do if you won the lottery? I’ve always been sure I would plow every dime of it into this place to help our entire community, so the give away was like that on a small scale. Soon you’ll see the results cropping up all over town in the form of beautification projects, full food pantries, fire department extras, coats, underwear and backpacks for kids, big signs, less cats, suits and towels at the pool, the dental van ... a huge variety of help for worthy projects. Come to the celebration on Sept. 5 between 4 and 5 p.m. at the Lower Umpqua Hospital and Dunes Clinic parking lot. The merger of the two was a celebration on its own, but we tagged on so we could take the opportunity to have a crowd. Please be there to share the good vibe — for once no one is asking for anything!
Cat news One of the items in the cash give away is a fund to spay and neuter feral cats. I wish we had enough to pay for all of WHAT’S UP! them but we only have $1,000. The nice people at Lower Umpqua Vet Clinic have Nancie agreed to do H ammond the work at less than half price but it’s still fewer than 20 cats. Don’t get excited and run your cat down there, or any cat. First, call me at 541-6620018 and I’ll set it up for you. When the clinic gets the cat they will have you sign it over to them and it means you’ll never see it again. If the doctor deems it is neccessary, the cat may be euthanized. Or if it is possible they will neuter it and put it up for adoption. Or, the cat may be returned to its previous outdoor home which is not ideal, but at least there won’t be any more batches of kittens. The city doesn’t have a cat shelter, and I don’t know of a single no-kill cat shelter anywhere. There are simply too many. If we had a shelter it would overflow within days and it would be someone’s job to put them to sleep all day every day, and it never ends. The city doesn’t have the money for that. It’s a shame but the best we can do is encourage people to spay or neuter the cats they own and to catch a wild one and pay to have it
altered. If you can’t afford to pay for a free roaming cat, this fund is here to help.
Boog-a-duh! Last Saturday I was manning the Poker Walk counter at The Stockade for the Kool Coastal Nights wives, and the place was hopping! So many people out at the bay for the show and there was quite a line up in the store. A very nice couple rushed in and said “are you the one who writes “What’s UP” for the Post?” Well, they had some news of the weird, just the way I am always hoping.
The man had a photo on his camera, and his wife explained what it was.... They were admiring the shiny classics lined up on Beach Boulevard when they noticed a very unusual “hood ornament” displayed exactly in the middle of a bright yellow car trunk. What is that — some kind a bug? Someone glued a big winged bug thing there. Then it blinked. Yikes! The ornament had planted itself and was staying put and no one wanted to argue with the creature that was sporting an 8- to 10-inch wingspan and a
weird, long dangly body/tail thingy and a menacing face with blinking eyes. An impromptu biology lesson ensued and it was determined the “monster” was a mosquito hawk. A perfect, shiny, specimen that appeared to be shellacked to the car trunk. The bug drew quite a crowd and last I heard it was still holding on tight and seemed to like the attention. Eww. Got news? Unusual, funny, historic or hysteric — I want to know! Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Coming to car shows is a way to talk about the car Chevys, ’56s and ’57s, Camaros, and whatnot, but it’s pretty unusual to see a ’59 Impala. That Reno show, “Hot August Nights” attracts upward of 6,000 cars and is billed as the largest classic car and nostalgia event in the United States. The Summers own a classic car dealership in Eugene. They have five classics in their personal collection. Gary and Mary Cripps of Roseburg, brought their 1940 Ford coupe to the show. They’ve had their car for five years and it came already restored. “It was pretty much the way it is right now,” Gary said. “We bought it from a real good friend that lives down in Medford. The car is not just for shows. “Oh, no,” Gary said. “We drive it. It’s got 15,000 miles on it.” Coming to car shows is a way to talk about the car. “Gary likes (the car)
because it’s the year he was born,” Mary said. “There were two or three other guys, same thing, they love the car because ‘that’s the year I was born.’ We love the look of it. The fenders, the sweeping lines, it’s just really a classic car.” “A lot of this,” Gary continues, “is people who stop and want to talk to you about it, are working on a car and they want to know how you did this and how you did that. It’s kind of interesting.” The car is in an interesting color. “Champagne Fizz,” he laughed “It’s a Germanbased paint ... as far as we know they paint, like, BMWs and Rolls Royces and some of those high-end cars are painted with that paint.” Craig Spotts from Coos Bay brought a 1956 Mercury Monterey, also called a Phaeton. “Because it’s a four-door hardtop,” Spotts said. Spotts bought the car six years ago and did some restoration. “The paint was done,” he said. “I did chrome, painted the inside and had the upholstery done by a lady in Brookings named Sue Ryan. She did the whole thing inside for $1,000. He said he switched to

so much fun and cleaner.” He enjoys the back and forth with other owners. “We like old, beautiful
things,” Spotts said. “Because, nowadays, you can stand next to a car and not know what it is. Back
then, you could see one coming from a mile down the road and you knew what it was.”
Art Dever suggested the committee look at the harbor long-term. “Salmon Harbor is not going to be able to support two basins,” he said. “There isn’t the demand. “It’s not going to be able to support both basins, in the end. Somewhere down the road all the entities that are in control of this are going to have to decide which way we’re going with this. Are we going to the east basin or the west basin?” He said a firestorm of public opinion might be
coming if nothing is done. “At this point,” Train said, “when there is no money the firestorm would be really detrimental to our whole area with the people perceiving, from outside this area, ‘why should I go there if this kind of stuff is going on.’” “There’s nothing like light on a problem,” Dever said. “I think the more people that know about this problem, the better.” Stallard says he’d like to work further on a long-term solution. “It’s a whole master plan
that we’d have to put together,” he told the committee. He asked for patience. “We, kind of, have to minimize the amount of docks that we have to take care of over there and try to find a way to do it with what we have over here in surplus. But, to do that, with a staff that’s been reduced by two full-time employees ... we want the east basin alive, it’s just how are we going to do it? How much can we do?” The committee suggested Stallard continue to develop the idea.

Contracts approved to improve RV Wi-Fi The Salmon Harbor Management Committee approved an increase in the fees it charges for its lone cabin and also approved two contracts to improve Wi-Fi at the RV resort. The committee, at it’s August 21 meeting, agreed to spend a total of $9,780 for two contracts to add Wi-Fi facilities. Those contracts are with Kyle Electric of North Bend and Reynolds Electric of Eugene. “Over the years we’ve had problems with our Wi-Fi out there,” harbormaster Paul Stallard said. “It’s been something that showed up on our comment cards year after year after year. The first week I took the job here and I actually took a survey of 100 comment cards and went through and did an itemized list of all the different complaints. “The number one thing that people complained about was the Wi-Fi. The people that stay over at the RV resort stay for months at a time and they use that Wi-Fi, basically, to do their online banking, communicate with family members ... and check on their stocks and bonds. The system that we have out there is unreliable.” The resort installed two temporary anten-
nas to gauge the reliability of the system. “Since we installed the new antennas, our complaints have really dropped,” Stallard told the committee. “Everybody seems to be using strong antennas, and no longer using the three weaker antennas that were already in place.” Stallard says that means a lot of use and the system is still getting bogged down. The new contracts will allow the resort to expand from the current three antennas, to a series of substations around the park. The contractors will use existing phone conduit to wire the system. “Basically, everyone uses cell phones,” Stallard said. “We haven’t had anybody come in and want to hook up a phone line for three months, or whatever.” Stallard says Wi-Fi access is a big deal to customers of the RV resort. “I had three or four different people, during the Fourth of July weekend, (who), basically said, ‘we’re going to stop coming here’ because they come here every summer and they can’t do what they need to do. They love the place, that’s what all the comment cards said, ‘well maintained, beautiful

bathrooms, love the surrounding community, all the little businesses’ and stuff. ‘But if we can’t do business while we stay here, we’re going to have to find somewhere else we can go.’” There is one wooden “cabin” at the RV resort. It was formerly used as an office for the resort manager and was converted into a guest cabin. Rates for the cabin were set at $85 per night during the summer months, May 15 through Oct. 14, and $60 a night for the winter months, Oct. 15 through May 14. There is a two-night minimum stay required. Stallard said the cabin gets a lot of use. “On busy holidays it’s really been a hit,” he said. “It’s still brand new. A lot of people see it for the first time and they’re going, ‘well, we have friends that don’t have an RV we’ll tell them now they can come stay at the park.’” One local business owner, Art Dever, who owns Dockside Rentals in Winchester Bay, asked if the committee had plans for more cabins at the resort. “You’re directly in competition with a lot
of us,” Dever said. His business is vacation rentals and apartments. “We originally did this one because we already had the building already there,” committee chairman Jim Bruce said. “We don’t have any plans right now for anything else.” But, Bruce said they might reevaluate during next year’s budget process. In other business, the committee approved an amendment of the commercial lease with Oaesys Corporation for property on Ork Rock Road. It also approved a contract renewal for security services with C-N-B Security LLC of Coos Bay. The current contract expires Aug. 31.

Under the hood at Kool Coastal Nights The koolest cars on the coast were on display over the weekend at Kool Coastal Nights in Winchester Bay. The event drew more than 300 classic vehicles. Here are a few that photographer Thomas Moriarty enjoyed from the show: Flames decorate the sides of a 1930 Ford Model A (top left) on display Saturday in Winchester Bay. A large brass eagle decorates the hood of a 1929 Oakland sedan (top right) on display Saturday at Kool Coastal Nights in Winchester Bay. Passersby (left) examine vintage cars lined up on the Winchester Bay waterfront Saturday. A 1985 Avanti Touring Coupe (below left) glistens in the sun Saturday at the Show and Shine. A model of a 1963 Plymouth Sport Fury (below right) rotates slowly on the exhaust manifold of its real-steel counterpart. The Reedsport Fire Department had its 1929 Mack fire engine (bottom) on display Saturday. Volunteers from the department restored the truck to its original condition.

B Football team competes in jamboree Friday THE UMPQUA POST

Monster trucks Rock Star and Bone Crusher sit outside Steve’s ATV Rentals in Hauser last week. The trucks, which were in the area while their owners made a stopover at a campground, drew stares from passing drivers. For more pictures of the trucks, see Page B4.

and libero Madi Richardson. But the returnees include a couple of powerful girls in the middle — Gabby White and Kayla Doane. And Kaylynn Hixenbaugh, the coach’s daughter, takes over the setter role after filling in for Lewis when she was ill last fall. Bailey Tymchuck returns after a year spent as defensive specialist and will be the libero, while Ruby Cardoso will play the entire rotation after primarily playing back row in 2012. “She’s one of the ones that’s a big surprise,” James Hixenbaugh said. “She’s not very tall, but she can hit the crap out of the ball and she’s a good back-row player.” Alicia Osorio also returns and will fill one of the rotations on the front row, along with sophomore Hailee
Reedsport’s volleyball team suffered a few big losses to graduation, but the Braves are off to a good start in fall practice, coach James Hixenbaugh said. “At the North Bend camp, they did pretty good,” he said of the Braves, who have reached the semifinals at the state tournament each of the past three seasons. “We lost a lot last year, but I think we have some girls who are going to step up and fill some spots,” Hixenbaugh said. “They’re a competitive group.” The Braves will get a big test early when they host Creswell next Tuesday, the first day of school. Gone are all-state outside hitter Monica Vaughn, setter Taylor Lewis
Abraham, who grew up in the Reedsport School District, but lived the past few years in the Florence area before returning this fall. Reedsport will have a busy first week. After hosting Creswell, the Braves host a jamboree the next night with Bandon, Coquille, Days Creek and Riddle. Then the first weekend of the school year, Reedsport hosts the annual Dune Classic, an eight-school tournament that also includes Pacific, Glide, Yoncalla, North Douglas, Oakland, Coquille and defending champion Siuslaw. That event starts at 10 a.m. on Sept. 7. Hixenbaugh said he is excited to see how the Braves perform. “They have a lot of confidence after going to that camp,” he said.
Richardson, LaVigne team to win tourney THE UMPQUA POST Recent Reedsport Community Charter School graduate Madi Richardson teamed with Terry LaVigne to win the Coastal Classic, a two-day women’s golf tournament at Forest Hills Country Club held over the weekend. Richardson and LaVigne had a total of 160 for the event, in which the golfers played scramble one day and chapman the other. Theresa Asper and Cathy Mosieur matched their total, but lost in a scorecard playoff, which compared the teams starting with the toughest hole. Cleverly and Linda Fox took low-net honors in the A Flight, for the best golfers,
with a 139. Colleen Cooper and Robyn McCarty took lowgross honors in the B flight with a 187, while Mary Malmberg and Pat Porter had the best net score for the flight with a 149. The event also had two related games on Friday, the day before the tournament started. Pat Blankenship and Joyce Booren won a ninehole scramble with a score of 42. Cathy Bishop and Sheryl Tood won the horserace, with Gerry Leep and Jan Shaw second.

Reedsport’s football team opens the season with a jamboree in Coquille on Friday, which coach Shane Nelson views as an opportunity to see how the team’s new players are coming along while trying to keep the entire squad healthy for the regular season. The Braves face off against Bandon at 5 p.m., followed by a scrimmage with Coquille. The format is scripted, with each team getting 18 offensive and defensive plays against each of the other two foes. “For me, the whole goal this week is to stay healthy,” Nelson said. That means quarterback Haden Sams, running back Matt Rohde and some of the other key players might not see much time on the field. “When we do have our core guys in, we want to film that and see how (the offense) looks against actual competition,” he said. At the same time, the jamboree will be vital for a whole new group of Braves, including eight freshmen and seven others who didn’t play last year. Those players, Nelson said, have been getting a clearer picture of what high school football is every day in practice. “We’re really going to use this as an opportunity to find what younger kids can help us, and give them experience,” he said. After the jamboree the Braves have four nonleague games — against Neah-KahNie and Waldport at home and North Douglas and Riddle on the road — before starting Sunset Conference play.
Nelson said several players have pleased him with their development. One is junior Jared Billings, a running back and linebacker who has blossomed this fall. “He has great physical tools,” Nelson said. “He’s always played tentative. Now he’s making plays.” Four sophomores also have been noteworthy, he said. Egan Glover started as a defensive end and offensive tackle last year and just missed being first-team, allleague on defense despite tipping the scales at just 147 pounds. “He led us in tackles for loss,” Nelson said. “He’s very smart, a farm kid who knows how to use his weight. He’s been in the weight room since last season got over and he’s up to 182 pounds.” Griffin Kaufmann started opposite Glover, giving the Braves two freshmen at defensive end, and has similar instincts and the flexibility to play end, tackle or linebacker on defense. This year on offense, he will play the critical role of center. “He’s done a great job,” Nelson said. “We haven’t had a single ball hit the ground in the past week. That’s a good sign.” The other two sophomores of note both are linebackers and running backs: Chris Chavtur and Joey Herr. Chavtur is a little shiftier on offense and has outstanding speed. Herr is more of a physical back, like Wade Hutchison who graduated last year. “They’re both quick kids,” Nelson said. “They pick everything up quick.”

Derby means salmon fisherman are off to the races The big news this week, “fishingwise” is the annual salmon derby sponsored by the Gardiner-Reedsport-Winchester Bay STEP chapter which has held the derby Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day Weekend for the past 17 years. As usual, the entry tickets will cost $10 for an individual angler and $25 per boat. There are a lot of things to like about this contest — which is fairly simple as fishing contests go. The heaviest salmon weighed in each day wins $150 and the heaviest salmon weighed in for the entire derby wins $500 — since the heaviest salmon for the derby will obviously be the heaviest salmon turned in on the day it was caught, the derby’s heaviest salmon will be worth $650 to the lucky angler who catches it. There are of course, other ways for derby entrants to get paid. Anglers will be entered in a blind drawing each time they weigh in a
salmon during the derby. The two OUTDOORS the last several derbies is that no weigh stations are located at “The AND MORE matter how big the salmon are running, it doesn’t seem to have Landing Boat Ramp” near the any influence regarding the weight Discovery Center in Reedsport and of the heaviest salmon taken durat the East Basin Boat Ramp near ing the derby. the Coast Guard Station in Winchester Bay’s Crab Bounty Winchester Bay There will also be a Contest starts next week.

The Buoy 10 fishery at the mouth of the Columbia River is approaching its harvest quota and went to only fin-clipped hatchery Chinook as of last Friday. It seems that the Port of Astoria temporarily raising parking fees from $10 to $20 wasn’t much of a deterrent to Buoy 10 salmon anglers. Although the ocean off of Winchester Bay remains the best salmon-catching option, the Umpqua River between Winchester Bay and Reedsport has shown definite improvement. While the Umpqua River is open for Chinook salmon all year, ocean Chinook in our region (Cape Falcon to Humbug Mountain) is only open through
