New chief sworn in 27-year-veteran Duane Wisehart is Reedsport’s new police boss BY STEVE LINDSLEY Umpqua Post editor
It was a packed house, Friday, as the new Reedsport police of chief was sworn in. A ceremony was held at the Umpqua Discovery Center. Duane Wisehart comes to Reedsport after spending 27 years in the Hemet Police Department in California. City manager Jonathan Wright hired the 27-year veteran and directed the short ceremony. Pastor Allen Chaney, Reedsport Church of God, gave the invocation. “We thank you for the men and women who choose to serve,”
Chaney prayed, “to sacrifice for the betterment of our communities and for the safety of our children and our loved ones.” He also asked for a blessing for the entire Wisehart family, who made the trip to Reedsport. “I would pray that you bless them, that you would watch over them,” Chaney asked. Wisehart’s family; wife Tara; daughters Ariel and Savannah and sons Hayden and Jacob will return to California until after the school year. Wright also had a short tribute to Chief Mark Fandrey, who died of a heart attack in July of 2013. “I want to take us back to a
day,” Wright continued, “to the day of July 6, 2013 … a date that marked a tragic event in the city of Reedsport. While I’m still deeply saddened by the loss of Chief Mark Fandrey, his passing provided us with an opportunity to welcome new people into our community, and give way to new leaders. I believe, in my heart, that Chief Fandrey has been a guiding force in the events that have transpired over the past few months.” Fandrey’s wife also attended the ceremony for Wisehart. “I’d like to give special thanks to Beth Fandrey,” Wright said, “for being here today and showing her support.”
Wright also paid tribute to Mary Beck, the wife of interim chief, Sgt. Tom Beck. “I would like to give you a token of my appreciation,” Wright said, “for letting me torture your husband for the past seven months, and all the support you’ve shown in trying to push him along in his career.” Wright had more kind words for Beck. “Watching Sgt. Beck breach the surface of upper management, has been inspiring,” Wright said. “He found innovating solutions to tough financial issues. He

Wisehart says he’s ready to get started Reedsport’s new police chief, Duane Wisehart, was brief in his remarks following his swearing in by Mayor Keith Tymchuk. Wisehart’s wife, Tara, pinned his Reedsport police badge on him. “I do want to thank everybody for coming out,” Wisehart told the packed room at the Umpqua Discovery Center. “I did not take this task on lightly. I’m very excited, very happy to be the chief of Reedsport. I’m excited to get to know the men and women of the department and all the people in the community.” He wanted the community to know that he plans to listen too. “I want everybody to know that I’m a very approachable person,” he said. “As a chief, I want anybody, if they ever have any questions, to come to me. You’re going to see me out in the community
often. I’m going to get involved is a much as I can and get to know as many people as I can as quickly as I can.” He said his family will also be part of the community. “My boys love baseball, so we’re going to be involved in sports out here,” the new chief said. He also thanked City Manager Jonathan Wright. “He has been tremendous throughout this process, very thorough” Wisehart said. “I’ve worked for a lot of city managers … I’ve never worked for one that’s as dedicated an diligent as he is in this whole process.” Wisehart said he was ready to get to work. “I’m very happy to be here,” he repeated, “and I’m very happy and New Reedsport Police Chief Duane Wisehart has his new chief's badge excited to get started and meet pinned to his shirt by his wife Tara Friday morning. everybody.”
Committee takes over plans for Memorial Day A committee to plan for Memorial Day festivities in Reedsport met Wednesday, Jan. 22, in the Reedsport city council chambers. The committee is hoping to pick up momentum after a 2013 event that featured no organized parade. There was an informal parade and ceremony at the war memorial at the city’s Hahn Park. The Lions Club’s Jim Wells facilitated the meeting. “We’re going to be in charge of the memorial service,” Wells told the committee. This year’s events will include a dinner Sunday, May 25, at the Presbyterian church and a patriotic concert with vocal and band music.
Monday, May 26, will feature a service at the cemetery, a parade and a memorial service at Hahn Park at 1 p.m. There will be discussion about the parade route with the Oregon Department of Transportation. “We’ve tentatively set the parade route, for those of us who have been around here a long time, the old OceanFest parade route,” Reedsport Police Sgt. Tom Beck told the group, “starting at 22nd Street ... that will be our staging area ... they will come out on the Highway 101 and go down ... to 10th Street.” By Steve Lindsley, The Umpqua Post At 10th Street the parade will The Memorial Day planning committee met to continue to plan for this year’s head to Winchester Avenue, to

Oregon Congressman Peter DeFazio continued a series of forums in western Oregon last week, including a stop in Coos Bay on Thursday. After his forum, the Democrat stopped by The World offices for an editorial board meeting. Among the topics discussed were timber bills that are now being considered in Congress. “(Sen.) Wyden’s holding a hearing the first week of February,” DeFazio told the editorial board. “He’ll hold a hearing on his version. We’ve been in early, intensive talks between myself and the senator and our staffs are now talking about what changes we might be able to make to come to an agreement.” DeFazio, along with Oregon Reps. Greg Walden and Kurt Schrader have managed to pass a bill that would more than double timber harvests across the country and calls for placing about 1.6 million acres in a state-managed trust focused on timber production. Wyden has proposed a bill that would allow less harvest and provide less money to Oregon and California railroad lands. “This new foundation will more than double our timber harvest across 18 timber counties and ensure that harvest continues for years to come,” Wyden said in a news release in advance of his announcement. DeFazio says they know it will take some hard bargaining to get the house and senate bills conjoined and get the legislation passed and signed. He says, when it’s all said and done, he hopes something significant is passed. “The objective hasn’t changed,” he said, “which is certainty; higher levels of revenues, which depends on a higher level of harvest.” He also said the bills would need to meet certain environmental protections. “We’re still in agreement on those,” The Fourth District Congressman said. “He says he can’t pass a trust. We’re willing to work within his framework without a trust, if we can meet the objectives ... and that’s going to require some changes.” Wyden will hold the hearing next week in his Energy and Natural Resources Committee and then is expected to take over as chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. It’s not clear where Wyden would stand with the energy committee. “I hope (the energy committee) would move the bill out,” DeFazio said. “Then, that puts us in a position to begin negotiating. This bill isn’t going to pass the senate as an individual, free-standing bill. It’s a one-state bill. The senate’s pretty dysfunctional.” He said the bill could be part of a larger “land package” later in the year. “But, if he moves the bill out of committee, then we can begin to discuss what changes could be made to be put into a larger land package,” DeFazio said. That package could include federal land protections, creating more national monuments, creating more wilderness areas, more active management on federal forest lands and creating more “wild and scenic” rivers. DeFazio said there hasn’t been new designations for those in more than three years. The Democrat said, if it goes well, it all could be done before the summer Congressional break.

East Railroad and end at the Hahn Park area. The route would mean the closure of two lanes of U.S. Highway 101 for about an hour. Allen Deaton, with ODOT, expressed concern with the proposed route. “We’re hoping to the parade off Highway 101 and back onto (state Highway) 38,” he told the committee. He said using Highway 101 creates big backups, including back into Winchester Bay. “We’re extremely sensitive to what that looks like,” he said. “We’re here to work with you but, at the same time, we have an obligation to the traveling public and safety of the traveling public, to make sure we’re going forward in a process that’s going to work for the city, as well as enhance transportation at the same time through the corridor.” Wells pointed out, in years past, there had been problems, as well, with using Highway 38 through downtown. “I can remember, probably about six years ago, that we did have a mass exodus from Winchester Bay and, with getting the parade out on Highway 101 from 22nd Street, we had to stop northbound traffic, and that backed everything up.” Sgt. Beck said. “I understand their concern with the impact on the traffic.” Deaton met with Sgt. Beck after the committee meeting. Wells said they would like to return to the celebration as a Reedsport event. “The parade will be a local affair,” Wells pointed out, “featuring local groups maybe as far north as (Florence) and Coos Bay/North Bend. This year’s grand marshal will be Command Sgt. Maj. Daryl R. Thies. His biography said Thies entered active military service in June 1991 from Reedsport. Following completion of One Station Unit Training at Fort Polk, Louis., he was sent to Fort Benning, Ga., for Airborne School and the Ranger Indoctrination Program. From November 1991 to June 2010, CSM Thies spent his career serving the 75th Ranger Regiment in a multitude of capacities from rifleman to rifle company first sergeant and operations sergeant major. During that time, Thies has deployed in support of numerous named operations to include, Operation Uphold Democracy, Operation Safe Haven, seven times to Operation Enduring Freedom and four times to Operation Iraqi Freedom. The committee will next meet on Feb. 12 at noon at the community building.

Hinsdale Gardens sets three open Saturdays A local volunteer group is hoping for more face time with fabulous flowers and flora this spring at Hinsdale Gardens. A Friends of Reedsport’s Hinsdale Gardens met to discuss getting volunteers to staff more than one “open day” at the gardens, just off state Highway 38 near the Dean’s Creek elk viewing area. According to the group’s Facebook page, updated by Debbie Dreyer, they’re hoping for three open days. “They are not set in stone, as of yet,” Dreyer wrote. “We will need eight to 10 trained volunteers at each open day to help so, if you went through the BLM training in April 2013 and would like to work one or all three of the days ...”

Fatal flaw in Jordan Cove plan From The World: Our last editorial of discussed a proposal to create a mechanism for accepting and disbursing what’s expected to be a multi-million-dollar windfall when and if the Jordan Cove liquefied natural gas plant becomes reality. The plan was crafted by our region’s governmental entities and the Port of Coos Bay, and publicly unveiled at a recent Bay Area Chamber of Commerce meeting. We found what we consider to be a fatal flaw in that proposal – the complete and absolute absence of public accountability. The plan calls for Jordan Cove to pay “community service fees” in lieu of property tax payments, and those funds to be managed by a nonprofit corporation and its self-appointed board. (That’s correct: self-appointed.) As a nonprofit, the board would not be subject to the state’s open records and meetings laws. No matter what you call these funds, they remain public money. Management decisions on those funds, and who gets to make those decisions, must be done in the full light of public scrutiny. Unless that happens, we believe the plan is unacceptable. But we offer an alternative. Fortunately, there are many models across the country that could be modified and adapted to our region’s needs.
Most notable of these is the Alaska Permanent Fund. Most of us know it mainly as the mechanism by which every Alaskan gets a three- or four-figure check every year from the state. The Alaska fund was created by the Legislature in 1977 as a way of investing windfall tax revenues from the trans-Alaska oil pipeline. It has a board of directors appointed by the governor, its meetings are public and it’s required by law to issue annual reports. The fund’s initial investment of $734,000 has grown to more than $40 billion. Texas has its Permanent University Fund. As the name implies, this fund feeds into the University of Texas system and the Texas A&M University system and is overseen by a volunteer board comprised of members from university regents. But these examples are all from sovereign states, you say. That’s true, so consider Valdez, Alaska. Valdez is the location of the trans-Alaska oil pipeline terminus, where crude is stored and loaded onto super tankers. When the pipeline was built, the oil companies used the city’s bonding authority to construct the marine terminal and gave the city a 1 percent fee on initial bond sales. The city created a trust for that $13.5 million windfall that has since grown tenfold. Proceeds are applied to
city services and to help support Prince William Sound Community College, the state’s only community college. The common element among these examples is that when an electorate was faced with a windfall, it created a public trust of some sort. And the management of that trust was placed under control of elected officials, either directly or through appointments by elected officials. Management activities happen in the public arena – guaranteed by law. Why would we want it any other way as we consider a windfall from Jordan Cove revenues? The current proposal
now goes to our local elected bodies, because the plan calls for the cities of Coos Bay and North Bend and Coos County to be in agreement. If the city councils and county commissioners approve this plan as written, they will have, in our opinion, shirked their fiscal responsibility and will have turned over management of what can only be considered public funds to an aristocracy. This is the opportunity for you to have your say. The proposed plan is still on our website: www.theworldlink.com/ news/opinion. Take a look for yourself, then let your elected representatives know how you feel.

Braves session on and off RCCS campus There has been a lot of unusual activity on the Reedsport Community Charter School campus during these eight days of Braves Session. Driving down 22nd Street on Friday morning, I saw a class full of Equine Studies students out in the field by the parking lot, taking turns putting several mini-horses and donkeys through their paces. Later in the afternoon the field had become a practice river full of students perfecting their fly casting with fishing poles and bright orange lines under the direction of the Lower Umpqua Fly Casters. Not all of the action is happening on campus this year, however. For the first time since the inception of Braves Session four years ago, this year’s class offerings included an “Independent Study” component for those creative upperclassmen who wanted to design their own elective experience. Several juniors and seniors presented proposals to Principal Laura Davis for job shadowing in their area of interest, and together they contacted employers to design their own in-depth occupational experience. Senior Aimee Wood, who hopes to attend the University of Wyoming to become a rangeland management specialist, arranged a multifaceted job shadowing experience with the Bureau of Land Management in cooperation with school district board chair Kerry Palermo, a lead wildlife biologist at BLM. When I caught up with Aimee on Friday, she had just returned from a trip with field agents near Bandon to survey the raptor population. “We saw a golden eagle, several kestrels, and a burrowing owl,” she reported. Like the other jobshadowing students, Aimee is keeping a journal of her experiences that will serve as her final project for the quarter credit she will receive. Senior Bailey Tymchuk is
interested in pursuing a career in physical therapy, so she’s shadowing the physical therapists at Lower SCHOOL Umpqua MATTERS Hospital each morning during these two weeks. “I’ve been able to work with stroke victims who KRISTEN are ZETZSCHE relearning how to get in and out of bed confidently, and I’ve observed the speech and occupational therapists working with patients,” Bailey says. “I just love it. It’s been an incredible experience. The therapists are encouraging me to become an official volunteer this summer to start logging volunteer hours.” Junior Katie Wall developed an interest in nursing during her own rather traumatic health history, breaking both wrists when she was twelve years old, suffering a broken left elbow twice, and enduring several surgical procedures along the way. Now she has the opportunity to be on the other side of the healthcare
system as she shadows the nursing staff at Lower Umpqua Hospital in her hot pink scrubs. One of the CNAs has taught Katie how to check vitals, and as she accompanies the nurses on their rounds the patients have been very willing to let her check their vitals, both in the regular rooms and in the emergency room. Katie reports that there are some of the more mundane tasks that she’s found difficult, but the experience has confirmed her interest in nursing. “I really like being around people and helping them when they’re sick or hurt,” she says. After graduation, senior Rauni Monroe will be entering Practical Dental Assisting of Oregon to become a dental assistant, so setting up a job shadowing experience with local dentist Dr. Gerry Goorhuis was a natural choice. Unlike the other students, Rauni’s job shadow is a full-day experience, allowing her to immerse herself in all facets of the dental office. “I’ve learned to sterilize the tools and the room and set up the room,” she reports. “I’m learning the names of the tools and the numbers of the teeth. Sometimes it’s overwhelming, but it’s been great to see how the doctor goes about fixing problems, and I
like helping and comforting the people who come in for treatment.” Other independent study classes include junior Jessica Howell’s job shadow with All Coast Construction and Excavation, picking up and hauling loads of rock to a construction site and learning to pressure wash and clean a dump truck, and seniors Bethany Hedges and Cassidy Howell’s publications internship, documenting the various Braves Session classes photographically and putting together a final digital project to show at the Braves Session Celebration. Kudos to the community businesses and experts who are investing their knowledge and expertise in the lives and the futures of our students. It’s an investment that will pay dividends for years and years to come. Mark your calendar: The community is invited to join students, staff, and parents at the Braves Session Celebration on at 4:15 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30, in Pacific Auditorium to hear a concert by the marimba ensemble and the School of Rock, watch Bethany and Cassidy’s slide show, and walk through the exhibits set up in the cafeteria. Everyone is welcome!

Catch it, cook it, win it! Show your stuff at the “Best of the Creek” Steelhead Derby in Lakeside this Saturday. Sign up at Spinreel Park Boat Ramp anytime between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. with a $15 fee to participate then get out there to reel in the big one. It’s worth a hundred bucks, if you happen to get the mac daddy! And even if you don’t win, the entry fee includes breakfast and lunch. Get out there early so you can be photo ready at 4:15 when the winner is announced. That $100 comes with a brand new rod and reel, as does second place, with $50. Even third place takes home a new rod and reel plus $25. Back at the dock, a smoked fish competition takes place. Bring it with you – no one expects you to smoke the fish you catch. You’ll have to be willing to give up some of your precious smoked gold, by parting with three bites and a (clean) paper plate plus $5 per entry. Everyone who smokes fish swears they make the best, has a tool box full of secret ingredients and lots of special equipment. As you know, the best part of smoking fish is talking about smoking fish, so
your audience awaits! Whether you have the “egg” or old school it all the way, as the winner you’ll be the expert of the moment – king of the parking lot! But don’t laugh at the swag, it’s serious. First place is a $250 food saver, second place a Work Sharp Knife with the sharpener, the third place is a fillet knife. Go get it! For more information, call Jim Farmer at: (541)759-3857 or (541) 759-2414.
Bring it on! If smoking fish isn’t your claim to fame, bring on your best, or at least watch what others can do at the Rotary talent show Feb.8 at Pacific Auditorium. Sean Grubb is the guy to beat – the police dispatcher by day is a fabulously talented one-man-band by night. No kidding. He won the show last year. The show starts at 6 but be there at 5:30 for the Name That Tune game. Variety is just the beginning of what you see on stage. Be there!
A birthday bash It’s Levi Scott’s birthday again – for the 217th time. They’re getting the party right, after all this practice. In case you didn’t know, Scottsburg is named after the forward thinking pioneer who made the town what it isn’t today. In his time, Levi turned the burg into a shipping port – a big one, that was the hub of capitalism and therefore nearly became the capital of
Oregon. The town may have dwindled, but fondness for its namesake hasn’t. Take part Saturday, Feb. 8 between 2 and 4 p.m., with some birthday cake and a lot more trivia. Volunteers will be on hand to answer questions at the Community Building.
What’s up at the chamber In a word: Confluence. The fabulous festival of music, beer, food and fun. The music lineup is top shelf, with all of our favorites coming for the weekend. Candy Apple Bleu is back, and the Agents of Unity!
The booths are filled with the best food, no corndogs allowed. Call your out-of-town friends and tell them to be here for Valentine’s Day weekend, because it’s going to be sweet! On the 22nd, make plans to be at the Chamber’s annual dinner to see new president Rich Patten coronated and cheer on the recipients of the Business Person of the Year award and the Oscar Anderson Volunteer of the Year award. The speeches are brief, this isn’t your daddy’s Chamber of Commerce. It’s informal with a barbecue, featuring grill master City Manager Jonathan Wright. Is there anything this guy can’t do? Even if you’ve never been involved in the Chamber, this is the perfect way to learn more about it and meet the new Board of Directors. It’s a friendly group – don’t be shy! The event takes place at the MAC (Marina Activity Center) and is always a great time. Trust me!

Sgt. Beck honored by the city for filling in during the interim embraced change and took extreme in everything he set up to accomplish as interim police chief. One of the things that impressed me most was his ability to learn, and manage Chief Fandrey’s complex budgeting system. “I know that we found a
new leader in Sgt. Beck and I think he found a new leader in himself. I want to thank you, personally, for the being the person we so desperately needed you to be in the wake a great tragedy.” Wright presented Beck with a plaque of recognition. He then presented Tara Wisehart with a flower. “This is basically an apology in advance for all the things that I’m going to do to your husband,” Wright said, “that he’ll come home and vent to you about.

THE UMPQUA POST Reedsport’s girls basketball team is on the verge of reaching the district playoffs after the Braves received a forfeit win due to a Gold Beach error last week. Now the Braves can focus on the chance to get the Sunset Conference’s top seed to the playoffs. During last week’s game at Gold Beach, the Panthers accidentally played a girl in six quarters between the junior varsity and varsity games, one more than is allowed by the Oregon School Activities Association. “I felt for Chris,” Reedsport coach Stu Richardson said of Gold Beach coach Chris Clark. “I would have been sick to my stomach. I know he was.” The mistake turned what would have been a loss into a win in the league standings. Now Richardson hopes the Braves can beat the Panthers on the court to get the top seed. The game Tuesday was close until Gabby White pulled a groin muscle when she made a layin to cut Gold Beach’s lead to two points in the third quarter. The injury was too much for the Braves to overcome on the scoreboard. “I need to have Gabby on the floor,” Richardson said of the Braves’ chances against the league’s best. Kayla Doane had 15 points and White had six when she went down with her injury, he said. Richardson sat White on Friday, when the Braves beat Bandon 47-25. Doane had 11 points, Evee Kessler added nine, Britney Manicke scored five and Destany Anderson and Alex Glover had four each.
