“We have between 250 and 300 cars that show up every year.” — Kool Coastal Nights co-chair Phyllis Dever
BY STEVE LINDSLEY The Umpqua Post
It’s hoped the recent sale of Dunes Family Health Care by the Lower Umpqua Hospital district will be a positive step for Reedsport and the health care community. Dr. Janet Patin, has worked at Dunes Family for 15 years. She says the purchase will allow the clinic to remain open. “Because of the insurance mix of the community,” she said, “You really can’t make it just on clinic income. So we moonlighted in the emergency room and that subsidized the primary care practice.” Things changed when the clinic ran into staffing problems. “Then we had some change in staffing and needed some help covering the emergency room hours, ” Patin said. “We asked the hospital for help.” The hospital entered into an agreement with Texas-based EmCare for emergency room services. “That solved some of our problems of having to deal with insurance for weekend doctors and staffing,” Patin said. “Although we had been in charge of the staffing and there was never an uncovered shift.” That change potentially could have put Dunes Family out of business, because hospital administrator Sandra Reese canceled the Photo by Sarah Haase, The Umpqua Post emergency room contract with A line of vehicles on display at the 2012 Kool Coastal Nights car show. Organizers speculate that around 1,000 visitors made their way to the show last Dunes Family doctors. year. This year’s event will begin on Aug. 23. She said the purchase by the hospital will help keep the clinic operating. “There really wasn’t any other way for support to come to the clinic,” she said. “They can’t just give money to a private group. “Now, with the merger, the responsibility for primary care will lie with the hospital.

These are not your parents’ fundraisers BY TIM NOVOTNY The Umpqua Post
COOS BAY — Pancake spatulas and spaghetti ladles used to be the tools of the big-time fundraisers. More and more, however, they are being replaced by motorcycle helmets and, most recently, tattoo artists’ needles. Today’s fundraisers are getting edgier and, those involved say, more fun. Two of the more popular fundraising events these days belong to bikers. Charity runs and poker runs seem to be gaining traction on the South Coast. Alan Pettit is a man who has a good pulse of the local riding community. He says the popularity is nationwide. “If you look at the Bible for riders, Thunder Press, these
types of activities are going on in every city, in every community and quite frankly there is a need.” Pettit, the owner of Highway 101 HarleyDavidson in Coos Bay, believes the Harley community itself is one reason for the increase. “Historically, we have a lot of vets who are always supporting each other, and public service people,” he said. “We have a lot of Harley riders in this community — period — and historically, they’ve been very generous, whether it’s muscular dystrophy, or St. Jude’s, or Bree’s Foundation, or veterans.” The latest entry into the world of motorcycle fundraisers is the Jeff Common Fallen Brother Memorial Motorcycle Run.
Steve Schneiderman, the organizer, says that when deciding on a new fundraiser they were looking for a way to bring people together. “We were thinking of doing something that Jeff enjoyed and motorcycle riding was one of them,” he said. But, he added, the motorcycle riding is not the important thing. “It’s the camaraderie with these types of events.” To prove that point, their “motorcycle” run is open to virtually any kind of vehicle: classic cars to beat-up sedans. In some events, such as the Bykes for Tykes Toy Run, the riding itself is the culmination of months of fundraising activity. “Walt and Sandy Evans, over at Coos Cycle Supply, have done a tremendous job with the Toy Run each December,” Pettit said, as he hit on another reason for the rise in motorcycle related fundraisers. There is simply a greater need. To help fill that need, Walt Evans says, there are people who grew up in difficult circumstances that are now able to help families facing similar hardships. “Some people are doing better and want to help families, and especially the kids. It’s tough, what they are going through, and it’s not their fault.” “There’s a lot of places where the ball gets dropped and the community really has to pick up and carry the weight,” Pettit adds. “Harley

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Asbestos status constant at Reedsport schools There were no significant changes this past year in our school district’s periodic surveillance reports showing the condition of the remaining asbestos within our school district. The custodial staff is continuing to implement the operation and maintenance manual dealing with all asbestos remaining in our buildings. A copy of the management plans, which includes periodic inspection reports, is located in the front office of each building. The district will be scheduling a reinspection every three years by an accredited inspector.

Congress must act to help Northwest forest economy On July 31, the House Natural Resources Committee approved a forestry bill that includes a bipartisan plan to open more than 1.3 million acres of federally owned forests in Western Oregon to revenue-producing harvests. The Hastings Bill includes the plan developed by Oregon Reps. Peter DeFazio, D-Springfield, Greg Walden, R-Hood River, and Kurt Schrader, DCanby, in which roughly one-half of the 2.6 million forested acres in the Oregon & California Railroad Grant lands — known as the O&C lands — would be placed under permanent protections. The remaining 1.3 million acres would be placed in a trust and managed to produce maximum revenues for the 18 Oregon counties that contain O&C lands. The main body of the bill, titled Restoring Healthy Forests for Healthy Communities Act, was sponsored by
Rep. Doc Hastings, R-Wash., would require harvest levels in federal forests sufficient enough to replace revenues currently supplied by the Secure Rural Schools program. Enacted in 2000, the Secure Rural Schools program provides timberheavy counties with direct payments intended to compensate them for the damage wreaked on local economies and tax bases by restrictions on logging on federal land. The payments have been extended several times, including a one-year extension passed last year. Hastings’ bill would extend Secure Rural Schools funding for an additional year at 2010 levels, a $200 million increase over current safety net funding, to give rural counties a bridge until additional revenues begin coming in. This legislation would also help address the growing problem of wildfires on western forests. Last year, 9.3 million acres of national forest land burned in wildfires, 44 times greater than the roughly 200,000 acres harvested by the U.S. Forest Service. Tens of thousands of acres in Southern Oregon are burning right now. The largest, the Douglas complex fire, near Glendale, has already consumed more than 36,000 acres. A good portion of the bill includes language that would require management of forestland to prevent such catastrophic fires Rep. DeFazio’s efforts to get the Hastings Bill successfully out of committee have been terrific. We are all southern Oregon members of the Regional Solutions Advisory Teams. Our task is to identify economic and community development priorities and solve problems at the regional level. Restoring healthy forests for healthy communities is clearly a vital regional economic priority. We applaud the efforts of Rep. DeFazio and Sen. Wyden to secure passage of legislation that would achieve this important goal. We urge a rapid House passage of Restoring Healthy Forests for Healthy
Communities Act, hopefully no later than September. We also encourage a quick final approval, by both Houses of Congress, of this or a similar Wyden bill to come from the Senate. Our forests are burning up, our counties and municipalities are in dire straits, and our school funding is no longer secure. We are in strong support of Rep. DeFazio’s and Sen. Wyden’s efforts to remedy all three. We encourage you to be in support, too.

Thanks for assisting first responders at DuneFest I would like to thank all the responders that assisted Winchester Bay Fire and Rescue in providing emergency medical treatment out of our ATV Rescue Station for Dunefest. I would like to send a special thanks to a group providing assistance for the first time at Dunefest — the Community Emergency Response Team. In addition to Dunefest, CERT provided assistance in the bomb response in Reedsport. CERT is a group of community members that have taken training to be able to do duties that allow a better use of manpower. If you do not have time to go to all the training to be a firefighter or EMT and want to help, please look at CERT. You can make a difference. Thomas “Scott” Anderson Fire Chief, Winchester Bay

Custodial crews indispensible at Reedsport schools The 2006 movie “Night at the Museum” changed the way many of us view museums. It featured a newly hired night watchman in New York’s Museum of Natural History who discovers that the museum’s exhibits come to life each night, with Teddy Roosevelt careening down the halls on his horse, the T-Rex fetching giant bones, and an army of Roman soldiers waging war on anything in its path. It’s an imaginary Hollywood example of the activity that goes on behind the scenes of a venerable institution. It’s a bit of a stretch — and doesn’t involve a rampaging former president — but our own venerable educational institutions have an invisible, behind-thescenes life all their own. It’s the view that only the custodians have of what happens during school nights and all through the long summer weeks when the buildings are empty of their regular inhabitants. Under the leadership of Mike Thurber, head custodian at Reedsport Community Charter School, and Bill Brown, head custodian at Highland Elementary School, the custodial staff scrubs, polishes, paints, shines and repairs our facilities to keep them in tip-top shape. Summers are laborintensive for the custodians at both buildings, and as Brown says, “We’ve had so many staffing cuts that we realized we have to combine our staffs and work together
or we wouldn’t get anything done.” It’s a veteran SCHOOL crew with deep roots MATTERS in the community: Brown, who has been with the school district since 1986, was also a KRISTEN long-time member of ZETZSCHE the National Guard who was deployed to Iraq for 18 months and for a shorter time to New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Thurber, a volunteer firefighter and parent of several RCCS graduates, has worked for the district for nine years, and Dana Roane, Ciechanowski and Alma Gardner add a combined 21 years of custodial experience in Reedsport as they join forces to divide and conquer. High on their priority list is deep cleaning the floors in all the classrooms and hallways, and a typical day during the first six to seven weeks of summer will be spent removing and cleaning the furniture from each classroom, cleaning and waxing the floors and dusting all the light fixtures. Both schools have grounds attached that need to be consistently mowed and maintained during the summer — the football and baseball fields and lawns at RCCS and the softball and
baseball fields of Barrone Park at Highland. After the floors and classrooms are clean, the next several weeks are spent on basic maintenance projects: They service the heating and hot water boilers, clean the roof and gutters and maintain all the door hardware and locks. At RCCS they change 250-300 student locker combinations and adjust and repair the lockers as needed. At Highland the custodians pressure wash all the playground equipment and use a blower to keep the pea gravel in place below the play structures. When the regular summer cleaning and maintenance is done, the custodial staff works as much as it can on special projects that they may not get to during the school year, including various painting projects, a new service counter in the RCCS kitchen, moving classrooms when necessary and repairing drinking fountains or other plumbing. Among other life safety inspections, the custodians prepare for a regular state fire marshal inspection each year. This year the custodians also refinished the large and small gym floors at RCCS, a long process of scrubbing, screening with a sanding disc, allowing it to sit for a day to dry, recoating and then letting it cure for a week. They still hope to shampoo the auditorium carpet and paint the stage, which was last painted more than 10 years ago. Of course, these special
projects all need to be completed before the teachers return to work in late August, when the custodians try to make themselves available for teacher requests — jobs like hanging instructional materials and equipment, moving furniture or repairing items that turn up broken. In talking with Bill and Mike, it was obvious that they feel a great deal of pride in their work, though at some times they admit that it feels like a losing battle. “Our staff used to be much larger,” said Mike, “but the work is the same. At RCCS alone we were reduced over 2,000 manhours this year. That makes a huge difference in what we can get done.” Bill went on to say, “The hardest part is having to cut corners to save the public’s money. Hopefully no one else will notice what we aren’t able to do, but we see it, and that’s disheartening.” Mike noted that the recent remodeling as a result of the successful bond measure makes maintenance on a tight budget easier. Soon, when the students return to school in early September, the custodians’ intensive summer of work will be on display, at least for a short period of time, until those unruly T-Rexes start trampling the shiny floors during the day, giving the custodial staff more than enough work behind the scenes throughout the long school-year nights.

Shine it up for Kool Coastal Nights That’s right, it’s time for Kool Coastal Nights in Winchester Bay. On Aug. 23 and 24 the bayfront will turn back the hands of time and look more like American Graffiti than the Mad Max of DuneFest. Something for everyone! The classic car show is always a huge hit and brings in about 300 cars to be admired and a couple of drivers in each vehicle ready to eat, drink and sleep here. Can you say “ChaChing!” because this has been a pretty good year for tourist-based businesses. If you’re reaping the benefit, thank a volunteer! We couldn’t possibly have all these events without them. And have you ever noticed it’s the same people over and over who are putting a band around your wrist, handing you change for your ticket, flipping your pancakes....? The same handful of hardworking people are everywhere. And wherever there’s a job to be done, you’ll almost always see Phyllis Dever with her purposeful fast walk, traveling 10 miles a day in the same tent, or wood shavings, dragging hoses and carrying a clip board. If she ever takes the summer off, we’ll all be sunk. Get up early on the 24th, it’s a Saturday and there’s a lot to do. Start out with a hearty breakfast at the Winchester Bay Community Center between 7 and 10 a.m. (Hey, 10 IS early for some of us). Bring the whole family and enjoy a homey meal together at a place where someone else does the dishes. It’s all-you-caneat pancakes, plus scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, coffee and juice. Doesn’t that sound good? Take a long leisurely walk along Beach Boulevard, where the classics will be lined up for blocks. You can regale your kids with cute stories about when you had a car like this one, or how your dad drove that one. I always find myself scanning for a bronze ’66 Mustang, or the twin of my little Nash Metropolitan. I like to drive things. I am not quite as fond of keeping them in pristine condition. It’s a lot of work, so when you admire those fabulous shiny rides, say something nice to the owner — it takes a lot of elbow grease to make a car look like that. And a lot of money. My dad always joked that it took $1,000 to back the Nash out of the drive-
way, but made up for it with the outstanding gas mileage since it was towed half the places it needed to go. Several years ago Bill Karcher and friends worked over the WHAT’S UP? Nash and made it like new, it was gorgeous! Except that I very foolishly opted for having Nancie the chrome H a m m o n d dipped instead of replacing it as Bill recommended, so here was this like-new little perfect car with rust all over the grill and back bumper because I tried to save a few bucks. I didn’t deserve that car. Share your car stories with the out-of-towners over the breakfast, or over a hot dog lunch at Philip Boe Park. The Merchants are serving up dogs, coffee, soda and water in a tent near the gazebo.
Fore! The Bill Humphreys Memorial Golf Tournament is slated for Sept. 1 at Forest Hills. This is the one where you don’t have to be much of a golfer, but you do need to have a bead on fun. The event is put on by the Braves Boosters and the money raised goes to high school and junior golf programs. Without this particular fundraiser those programs would go away and before you know it, there would be no more “Mo” types in our future. Bill Humphreys was a member of the first schoolsponsored golf team in Reedsport in the early 1960s and went on to make sure other kids would have the same opportunity. Here’s the scoop: the event is made up of six-person teams and they don’t have to be all great golfers because it’s a scramble. You can play even if your teammates always nicely suggest “just pick it up, your ball never counts anyway, it’s getting dark out here.” Yes, you know who you are. Don’t pout, just pay your $30 fee, swing the club around like a good sport, and be funny at the dinner that follows. I imagine you should sign up early in the Pro Shop.
Labor Day plans Don’t even think of going away for the last big weekend of summer. This is the
place to be! Call your friends and family out of the area and tell them to load up the kids, the dogs, the coolers and the fishing poles, then head this way. Art by the Bay is going to be better than ever this year, with the big tents it doesn’t matter if it rains or the wind blows, which is important for a few years the artists were set up with paintings and windchimes and all the work they put thousands of hours into, and then watched it get soggy in the mist. Never again. The tents are cozy and warm, and packed with all the best artisans and their wares. There are even more vendors this year and as you know, this is the one with the top quality stuff. I can’t wait to see the jewelry ladies and that one guy who hand crafts silver jewelry. It’s a little spendy but worth it. This year the featured artist is Mikayle Karcher. Her ceramic pieces are amazing and she does some edgy and innovative things. If you didn’t know she is an accomplished artist, be sure to take a look and prepare to be very impressed. It’s not just jewelry and artwork, there is also chair massage and a real psychic, projects for kids and things for the yard. The couple who makes those innovative bird houses with driftwood will be there again- love those! If the art isn’t your thing, perhaps a fishing derby? The annual Salmon Derby takes place over the weekend and it’s a lot of fun. It also happens to be the kick-off of the Crab Bounty Hunt on Sept. 1. A tagged crab might be the lucky one, reeling in $1,000 for you, plus you get to keep the crab. If you happen to get one with a fancy bracelet, race it over to Sportsmen’s Cannery where they will record the number. If it matches the one locked in the bank vault on Oct. 1 you win! Simple.
know money is tight but it would mean so much to a child. Didn’t you always just love getting new school clothes? I think it would be very sad and disheartening to know you wouldn’t have anything new for the first day, and you wouldn’t have a cozy coat to protect from the elements. But here’s the thing that really got to me Carol said you wouldn’t believe how many grade school kids don’t have underwear. They either have none or have old, torn up underpants and shirts. That really bugs me. All sizes are needed for both boys and
girls. Talk about the basics for a fresh start! Please help out by picking up some extras and dropping them off at the Resource Center. And I’ll bet the same is true for swimsuits. I know it has been an issue in the past and it must be a continuing problem. There are a few suits at the pool to borrow if a child forgets his, but every kid should have their own. I can only imagine the embarrassment of not having one when all the other kids do. That’s the kind of thing that stings for a lifetime. It’s a big deal when you’re 8. Put yourself in that position and
think back, then toss a pile of underthings, coats, and swimsuits into your cart.
And other stuff ... The Umpqua Post is a man down this week as editor Steve Lindsley recovers from surgery in the hospital. Don’t worry, he’ll be back, but in the meantime send him some healing thoughts or maybe a get well card. He’s a terrific guy when you get to know him and he is a dedicated journalist. We’re lucky to have someone of his calibre at the helm in our little berg. All together now: GET WELL, STEVE!

The Center is hoping for donations of warm winter coats that are new or slightly used, for the local kids who don’t have one. While you’re shopping for your own kids maybe you could pick up an extra?

LOCAL Clinic FROM PAGE 1
There will be 8,000 more people with insurance on Jan. 1 tax money to use to support those kind of services.” She says LUH’s taxing authority will also help the clinic. “The community pays a tax for the Lower Umpqua Health District,” Patin said. “So, it is not just for hospital services, it is for health-care services.” With changes coming in health care through the Affordable Care Act, Patin said the merger should help. “It’s better to go to a clinic,” Patin said, “rather than wait for things to be so bad that you have to go to a hospital. That’s the whole
Police Chief idea of health care transformation. Oregon is really on the forefront of taking those steps to change the way we think about, provide and participate in health care.” Both Patin and Reese are members of the Columbia Pacific Coordinated Care Organization board. “There will be 8,000 more people with insurance, come Jan. 1, in our CCO,” she said. Patin said, closer to home, she’s pleased with aspects of the merger. “We’re pleased that our employees ... we have not lost those 18 jobs,” she said. Doctors at Dunes Family are contracted for 90 days to remain. “We had an integrated care model here before,” Patin said. “Because we were covering the ER, the hospital and the clinic ... and there were enough of us to do that
... people had wonderful continuity where your doctor who knows you takes care of you in the emergency room in the hospital and at the clinic.” She hopes the merger will return the community to that dynamic and says doctors at the clinic had proposed a six-month contract. “Because we need to create a new health-care community,” she said. “And we need to re-integrate and get continuity back. The EmCare contract pays for the emergency room physicians to also be the hospitalists. So practically, people have a different doctor every day and it’s not the doctor who knows them. That is how it’s done commonly elsewhere. but it is less than ideal. And health care transformation is to try to improve care; keep people
out of the hospital and the emergency room and support primary care which is a very exciting prospect.” She said the hospital opted for the 90-day contract. “The current contracts are not really built for the long term,” she said. “So, we need to come up with job descriptions; and hopefully, we can craft several different options so that we can draw from the doctors here who want to stay.” Further, the hospital is recruiting for additional doctors. “Recruiting is very high on the list,” Dr. Patin said. “We went from having eight providers in the clinic ... to four. And we haven’t been able to recruit because of the uncertain financial situation. Now the hospital will be able to do more aggressive recruiting.”
FROM PAGE 1 is the time to open that position up.” Tymchuk pointed out the timeline may allow for a candidate list by the council’s October meeting and allow a staff review, and finalist recommendation by the November meeting. “We always have the opportunity to reopen (the recruitment) if we don’t find anybody that looks like they’re going to be a real good fit for the community,” Wright observed. “That’s one of our components.” Sgt. Tom Beck is serving as acting chief. An audience member asked the council if Beck could apply. “We would review all applications that we receive,” Wright said, “whether it be one of our
own or if it would be from outside sources.” “I don’t know if Tom wants to apply for the position. If he wanted to apply for the position he can turn in his application.” Sgt. Beck was also in the audience. “Honestly,” Beck offered, “I haven’t made up my mind whether I want it or not,” “For the record,” Wright said, “Sgt. Beck has been doing an outstanding job. I’ve heard nothing but positive feedback. Granted it’s been a short stint thus far. I’ve had a number of citizens come up, just off the street saying he’s been doing a great job.” Applications are currently being taken. The department is also looking for a police officer. Wright has indicated he’d like to see a new chief make that hire.

Saturday will also feature a sock hop at 7:30 p.m. They also get dash plaques. The main draw, of course, are the vintage cars, but there are plenty of events. “We have between 250 and 300 cars that show up every year,” Dever said. “We have a ladies’ poker run, a show and shine, everyone that signs up votes on their favorite car ... there’s going to be a barbecue at Sportsman Cannery, live music from 6 to 9 (Saturday).”
Saturday will also feature a sock hop at 7:30 p.m. Last year’s winner was a 1956 Chevy, owned by Jeff and Tina Parrett. Champion cars will participate in a “Parade of Champions” on Saturday 3:30-4 p.m. and then anyone interested can pay to be in the Harbor Cruise 6:307:30 p.m. Trophies will be awarded during the Parade of Champions. A new addition will be vendors at Phillip Boe Park. “We’ve got some metal artists, some jewelry, pottery, soaps,” Dever said. Information is available at the group’s website, koolcoastalnights.com.

Workers at Giddings Boat Works in Charleston slowly move The Patriot out of the shop earlier this month. The boat is the first one made by the company since 1999. Owner Ray Cox says it’s exciting to be constructing more boats and they rely a lot on the community’s support.
Giddings preps two new boats BY EMILY THORNTON The Umpqua Post
COOS BAY — Giddings Boat Works has two boats in the works — the first since 1999. The Patriot, owned by Mike Pettis, and The Miss Emily, owned by Todd Whaley. Both will be crabbing and shrimping boats, said Ray Cox, president of Giddings. The massive steel structures are 67 feet by 25 feet for The Patriot and 72 feet by 28 feet for The Miss Emily. Material from Far West Steel and Chapel Steel was used. There are three to eight builders working on the boats at any given time, Cox said. Once the outer part of The Patriot is finished, it will sail up to Newport where the interior will be completed, Cox said. He said both vessels should be done by November. “We’re really working hard to get them done by crab season,” Cox said. He said the projects were a hopeful sign for his company. The company has grown slowly from nine employees when Cox bought the business five and a half years ago, to 30 employees. “We hope to get our name back out

Cox said he hoped to get more orders. “Hopefully we’ll get at least one a year,” he said.

B Fall practice starts Monday
Young football players crash into blocking pads held by high schoolers during Reedsport’s youth camp last week. The three-day camp was designed to introduce football to the students in a fun way.
THE UMPQUA POST
Fall sports practices begin Monday for the high school athletes at Reedsport Community Charter School. The football team will practice from 5 to 8 p.m. each day next week. The volleyball team also will practice from 5 to 8 each day. Players in both sports are encouraged to complete their paperwork at the school this week. The participation fee is $80 and all athletes have to have had a sports physical within the past two years — traditionally before their freshman and junior years.
Reedsport will hold its first junior high football practice at 5 p.m. on Aug. 26. The team will meet in the junior high locker room and gear will be handed out on the first day. The participation fee is $40 and all players must have had a sports physical within the past two years. Coach Todd Harrington said the practices before school starts are important so that the players have enough practices to meet the required minimum before the first game. For more information, call Harrington at 541-2905691.
Football fun in the sun Pizza Ray’s senior tourney Head coach says annual youth camp is a big success scheduled for Sept. 11-12 THE UMPQUA POST
BY JOHN GUNTHER The Umpqua Post
Reedsport’s annual youth football camp provided a fun and learning experience for future and current Braves alike last week. The event drew 16 boys in grade 1 through 4, with the current high school players helping the coaches put on the camp. “It was great,” said Reedsport head coach Shane Nelson. “We had more numbers than last year.” From a teaching perspective, the three-day camp included fundamentals in blocking, tackling, catching A student practices running with the ball during the camp last week. and carrying the ball and proper offensive and defensive stances. The coaches also taught basic agility and plyometric drills. The bottom line, though, was making the event enjoyable, Nelson said. “It’s hard to teach fundamentals at that age,” he said. “The biggest thing I’m looking for is to have fun and get them excited about it — plant a little seed about how football is fun.” To that end, the camp included different games each day, such as Sharks and Minnows, Chase and Pursuit and the always popular Obstacle Course, Nelson said. The coaches hope to “make them like to be there,” Nelson said of the A player works on his agility during a drill last week. kids.
