Chamber hands out over $42K to groups THE UMPQUA POST REEDSPORT — Thursday, Sept. 5, was a big day for some local organizations and the Reedsport/Winchester Bay Chamber of Commerce. The chamber handed out $42,500, made possible by the charity auction at DuneFest in early August, which included $36,500 bid for a donated ATV from Polaris. The checks were handed out in conjunction with the ribbon cutting for the purchase of Dunes Family Health Care by Lower Umpqua Hospital. Chamber President Nancie Hammond handed out the funds. “This is the most fun I’ve ever had as the president,” she told the crowd of about 100 people. “In case you don’t know why we’re here, it’s to give free money. And, who doesn’t like that?” She explained the process of getting the funds to give the annual donations. “Every year at DuneFest,” she said, “it’s a huge project, but it’s a lot of money and it’s a lot of money back out. It brings so many people to town and we benefit so much from it that we’re really committed to it. “We have a great committee

this year that includes our two chairs, Bobby del Re and Clark Anderson … they did a great job this year.” Hammond related the story of how Polaris brought a new ATV, the RZR XP 1000, to unveil at DuneFest. “They said no one has seen it yet,” she said. “It hasn’t been unveiled. They’ve done a big leadup to it. Everyone wanted to see. No one had purchased one. No one had even test driven it. They brought it to Winchester Bay to unveil and to have it onsite and to have it in our auction.” The successful bidder got the vehicle for $36,500. It retails for $19,999. “It was a great event and everyone was so happy,” Hammond said. “We always give away the charity auction money. Every cent.” She said last year’s auction brought in $6,800. “This year we sat down with the chamber board and the DuneFest committee and made a list of everyone that could, probably, use some money,” Hammond continued. “We made a few phone calls and today we’re giving away 28 checks to community organizations that are deserving.”

LUH’s purchase of Dunes Family links health facilities BY STEVE LINDSLEY The Umpqua Post


REEDSPORT — About 100 people braved the rain Thursday, Sept. 5, for a ribbon cutting to celebrate the purchase of Dunes Family Health Care by Lower Umpqua Hospital in what was called a “Bridging Our Futures” celebration and also watched 28 organizations receive donations from the Reedsport/ Winchester Bay “Keith Anderson from the DEQ Chamber of Commerce. was granted time to approach the LUH Board Chairwoman board with a question,” the minutes Dorothy Denman led the hospital’s read. “He asked what the board’s festivities, which were held just in plan of attack was concerning the front of the facility, and just across future project.

DEQ proposes timeline to Gardiner as a starting point BY STEVE LINDSLEY The Umpqua Post

GARDINER — The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has been patient with the Gardiner Sanitary District regarding repairs to the district’s pipe under the Umpqua River. That patience may be wearing thin. Keith Andersen, the Western Region Administrator for the DEQ, says they’re doing what they can to get GSD to move forward with those repairs. The district’s board, meanwhile, is trying to move ahead with a plan to use a lagoon at the old International Paper site as its wastewater treatment facilities. Currently, GSD contracts with the city of Reedsport for treatment of its wastewater, but the two entities have been at odds for years on how much is owed for use of those facilities. That dispute may be headed to court. Andersen has appeared at two board meetings to urge GSD to move forward with a plan. “We have an existing MAO (Mutual Agreement and Order) with them,” Andersen said. “We’re obviously way past all the dates that are in that particular document. We are trying to reset the schedule with Gardiner to accomplish the objective of the MAO, which is to ensure that we don’t have a serious problem relating to the force main that the Gardiner Sanitary District owns under the Umpqua River.” He said the agency has given GSD a draft MAO with a proposed timeline as a “starting point for a conversation.” He says the negotiations with GSD are ongoing. “We plan to have another conversation with them, hopefully, no later than their next board meeting in September,” Andersen said. That board meeting comes Sept. 19 at 6:30 p.m. The district’s board meeting minutes from July 18 reflect Andersen’s appeal to the district.

weather had settled a bit for the ceremonies. “This really is a happy occasion for all of us,” Denman continued. “It’s the joining of these three health facilities, here. The hospital, the Dunes across the parking lot and Reedsport Medical Center.” Reedsport Medical Center is also owned by LUH and is just down the street from the hospital and Dunes facility. Denman said the three, together, would make a strong health community in Reedsport. “It really enhances the Partners In Care philosophy,” she continued, “that we have long cherished around here. So, it will just help bring things all together and provide the very best health care that we have always had here in Reedsport.” Denman says health care is a big part of the community. “The reason that we moved here, 20 years ago or so, was

This wave energy buoy, designed and built by Ocean Power Technologies, awaits deployment in Scotland in April 2011. It was OPT’s first real-world test of its wave energy generation technology. A similar buoy was scheduled to be deployed off the Oregon coast near Reedsport last year, but the project has been stalled. primarily wave energy.” Busch says OWET focuses on four primary goals. “Research and development;” he said, “regulatory policy; market development, which is, basically, work with utilities and, then finally, education and outreach.” The organization recently staffed a booth at Art By the Bay in Winchester Bay to talk with the public about the organization and explain what it does. Busch said their mission is to promote “responsible development” of ocean renewable energy.

because of this little hospital,” she said. “I’m sure all of you are as proud of it as I am.” The purchase of Dunes Family Health Care was official in early August. The hospital purchased the building, its assets, and will hire employees for the facility. Sandra Reese, the administrator of Lower Umpqua Hospital, said they purchased the Dunes building for $760,000. She said they plan to keep all facilities open. Doctors at Dunes signed 90day contracts to continue working at the facility. The sale took two years to complete. “We’re going to continue and have the best little hospital on the Oregon coast,” Denman concluded. After the ribbon cutting, done by Denman and board member Tamara Szalewski, guests were treated to a buffet provided by hospital chef Wes Morris.

American Bridge plans to appeal state DEQ penalty A Reedsport manufacturing facility will appeal $11,494 in penalties from the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality for “hazardous waste violations.” Jake Bidosky, a senior vice president with American Bridge Manufacturing, said the company has appealed the fines. “We feel that we haven’t done anything wrong,” he said. “In accordance with the process … we requested a hearing with the Oregon DEQ to come and explain what was done and why we don’t think we’re in violation of any placement of material that shouldn’t have been placed.” The fines involve, what the DEQ says, was illegal treatment and disposal of hazardous and solid waste at the manufacturing facility on Bolon Island. A DEQ release states that “during an inspection of the facility on April 6, 2010, inspectors observed sandblast waste used as fill material at the facility. The waste had been piled along the outside perimeter of the facility buildings and placed over soil adjacent to a storm drain. Sandblast waste generated from the types of activities performed at the facility can be toxic. DEQ staff explained that disposing of the waste in this fashion is a violation of state and federal laws designed to

protect humans and the environment from potentially harmful and toxic materials. The company received a warning letter in May 2010. American Bridge Manufacturing has been assessed a $2,750 penalty for its improper disposal of sand grit and has been ordered to test the disposal areas for hazardous materials by Oct. 15, 2013 and to correct the violation by April 30, 2014.” The department also assessed an $8,744 penalty for the company’s treatment of waste paint, solvent and fluorescent light bulbs. In addition, inspectors also noted: Approximately 35 gallons of waste paint and spent solvent stored in 15 unmarked and unlabeled 5-gallon containers, approximately 23 gallons of crushed fluorescent light bulbs stored in a 55-gallon container and several unmarked or improperly labeled containers used for storing hazardous waste” The news release went on to say “none of the residue from the solvent or waste paint had been tested as required by law to determine if the waste was hazardous. The crushing of the light bulbs also constitutes an illegal treatment of hazardous waste. Allowing paints and solvents to evaporate for disposal and crushing fluorescent light bulbs are considered “treatment” activities to manage and dispose of hazardous

waste. Only an approved treatment facility can treat hazardous waste. The company had until Sept. 11 to appeal and has already done so. “At this point,” Bidosky said, “We’re preparing for that hearing … to explain our case and try to convince DEQ that, as I said, we didn’t think we did anything wrong.” The date for that hearing has not been set. Bidosky could not, because of the pending hearing, give details of why the company believes there was no violation. He did refer to the fine on sand grit. “Our position is it’s nontoxic, it’s not hazardous and we complied with the requirements to prove that before it was distributed.” He said American Bridge is a responsible company. “American Bridge has been in business for 113 years,” he said. “We do not make a practice of endangering the public or the environment ever. And, we don’t think we did in this scenario.”

August’s DuneFest to local charities. All of it. Not one penny goes to running the chamber. A select committee poured through requests for a portion of the $42,500 raised at the auction. It was time consuming and, at times, confusing. In fact, the committee and president Nancie Hammond were fine tuning the numbers until just before the ceremony. It was an exciting time to watch those checks being handed out. The community should give kudos to both LUH and the chamber for the commitment to the area.

It’s true — those players on television, playing for the big money or the fancy uniforms, have a higher level of skill than our kids here in town. And it’s also true that our bleachers are not nearly as comfortable as your recliner in front of that big flat screen. But watching our kids compete is real life, unfiltered, with no commercial interruptions. Coming out to the game and cheering for our team is what draws us together as a community. It connects us to the past, it grounds us in the present, and it gives us hope for our future as we watch our kids learning and trying and failing and succeeding and realizing that this is a big part of what life is all about. These kids belong to this town. They’re out there playing their hearts out every Friday night on the football field and nearly every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday on the volleyball court, and they deserve our support. So be sure to mark your calendar for this week’s games: The football team plays next against Waldport this Friday night, Sept. 13, at 7 p.m. at Ruppe Field, and the volleyball team plays in the Les Schwab Invitational Tournament on Saturday, Sept. 14, starting at 10 a.m. at Butch Thompson Court. I’ll see you at the games this week!

OPT had received the permits to begin work off the coast of Reedsport now stalled. “OPT is an industry pioneer,” he said. “They’ve done as much as anyone, thus far, in terms of moving the industry toward commercial viability. “That project, in particular, has definitely slowed down. They’ve run into issues that are both regulatory in nature, as well as technology.” Ocean Power Technologies had received the permits and met the regulatory requirements to begin work off the coast of Reedsport. “Since that time, there have been new regulatory requirements that have come up they have to meet before they deploy that first buoy,” Busch said. “Their full FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) license was

going to be for 1.5 megawatts, which is 10,150 kW buoys,” he continued. “But, they were slow in deploying that first buoy so they actually ran into the point where FERC actually issued their license. But since they hadn’t put their first buoy in the water, FERC decided to go ahead and absorb that first buoy into their license. At that point (OPT) was required to meet a lot more permitting requirements before they could deploy that first buoy.” Busch said, because of a moratorium on ocean energy issued by the state in 2008, OPT is the only company moving toward actually placing a buoy. Busch is confident there will be wave energy projects off the coast. “OPT has been viewed as, sort of, a proxy for the industry,” he explained, “but OPT is just one of many companies. “They were, at one time, the leader and definitely the pioneer in the industry, but there are a lot of other companies out there.

Technologies are all advancing, however slowly, to commercial viability.” Busch says the state’s completion of its Territorial Sea Plan (TSP) in January is another step in moving forward. “That plan gets submitted to the feds,” he said. “To NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) and FERC. Those two agencies have the ability to adopt our plan, essentially approve of that plan, and when they do, then our rules essentially become their rules. Our standards become their standards.” When that happens, Busch said, the moratorium on such projects off the Oregon coast should be lifted. “That’s big news,” he said. “We’re the first state in the nation to adopt a Territorial Sea Plan to address ocean energy and control our own destiny. The industry is watching that. They’re certainly well aware of it. I think the industry feels good about it.”

Ocean Renewable Energy Conference set for Sept. 25-26 Ocean Wave Energy Trust will hold its eighth annual Ocean Renewable Energy Conference in Astoria Sept. 25 and 26. The conference is presented by the Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center. The theme this year is “Community and Industry: Collaboration, Innovation and Opportunity.” Jason Busch, OWET’s executive director says the conference will allow people interested in wave energy “to take a deep breath. “Let’s take a look at the industry, what’s happening, where are we going and how are we going to make sure the industry moves forward in a way that is, obviously, good and successful for the industry, but

good and successful for Oregon and local communities.” OWET’s website says session highlights will include “an update from NNMREC regarding research projects and development of the Pacific Marine Energy Center, industry and community perspectives on technology innovation, how we can protect the ocean with good business practices, impacts and opportunities for coastal communities, utility benefits and creative financing with community involvement.” According to a news release, Congresswoman Bonamici represents the First Congressional District of Oregon, which comprises the northwest portion of the state including Astoria. As the

Democratic leader on the Subcommittee on the Environment, Bonamici works to address the causes and risks of global climate change, and to ensure that policy decisions are based on scientific evidence. As a representative of coastal Oregon, she also works to draw attention to issues that affect this unique region, including ocean acidification, early tsunami warning systems, weather monitoring, debris removal and the responsible development of ocean renewable energy. The conference will be held at the Liberty Theater in Astoria. For more information about Oregon Wave Energy Trust (OWET) and the conference, visit

Awards FROM PAGE 1 Some of the representatives of organizations given funds spoke at the ceremony. The Family Resource Center received $1,500 for care bags and information for senior citizens. “They’re the bags that they give kids who are taken in the middle of the night from their homes because of domestic violence,” Hammond said. “Some things happen so they’re displaced right on the spot. The care bags are just a little bag they can take to their next stop … a few little toys, something that belongs to them.” Joann Patten said the money would also be used for booklets for a different generation.

“It’s something that we just started,” she said. “It’s a senior healthy living and exercise booklet that we put together. It has all sorts of DVDs and exercise ideas, nutrition, activities. We’ve included some Lower Umpqua Hospital health cards to put on their refrigerator in case of emergency.” The chamber donated to the Rotary Club for the dental van. “The dental van was initially started as a mobile dental van, sponsored with Northwest Medical Teams,” Kathleen Miller said. “It would pull into the Highland Elementary parking lot and children would have an opportunity to get care they might not otherwise receive. It kind of progressed to one dentist, that’s

Gary (Goorhuis). He, fortunately, is continuing with that program. So, the dental van now moves into his parking lot and he cares for the patients in his office. And, that’s both children and adults.” CASA received $2,500. “CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates for children in foster care,” Joanne Cash said. “This money will be used for foster children that are in Reedsport for Christmas gifts, for needs that they might have. It’s pretty exciting.” Reedsport should have a farmers market next year, thanks to the Reedsport Old Town Merchants Association and a $500 gift from the chamber. “It should be running from mid-May through mid-

suggested the least-cost option for GSD was to continue its agreement with the city and abandon plans to develop the IP site. The district’s board rejected the findings in that report. “At this point,” Andersen said,“we are anxious for Gardiner to move forward with a solution and are going to be working with them to identify a reasonable schedule that we’ll expect them to adhere to.” Andersen could not say when some type of enforcement action could come from the DEQ. “That’s a good question,” he said. “And I don’t have an answer for you today.” He did say that action may come soon. “There will come a point where we’ll need to have a response,” Andersen continued. “I can’t tell you what that point is, today. We tried really hard to get to a mutually agreeable outcome timeline.” Andersen said there’s still an opportunity for GSD to come through with the MAO. “That’s what we’re going to focus our attention on right now.”

Braves finish second in Dune Classic BY JOHN GUNTHER The Umpqua Post

By Lou Sennick, The Umpqua Post

Gabby White, left, and Kaylynn Hixenbaugh celebrate a point for the Braves during their Dune Classic match against Yoncalla on Saturday morning in Reedsport. The Braves finished second in the tournament.

Reedsport’s volleyball team had another strong showing in the Braves’ annual Dune Classic over the weekend. The end result was a loss in the championship match to Siuslaw for the second straight year, but Reedsport coach James Hixenbaugh said he was happy with how the team performed. “I thought the girls played really well,” he said. “We didn’t win the tournament, but we feel good about how we played. We passed the ball a lot better than we have been. Our serving was strong.” The Braves swept through the pool portion of the tournament, beating Yoncalla 25-20, 25-18; Pacific 25-12, 25-9; and Glide 25-21, 25-22. That gave the Braves the top seed for their group heading into the semifinals, where they edged Bandon, 25-13, 23-25, 15-9. Siuslaw, meanwhile, swept through its pool and then beat Glide 27-25, 25-13. In a tense championship match, the Vikings prevailed over the Braves 25-22, 22-25, 18-16. Hixenbaugh said a number of the Braves had strong performances during the day. Gabby White led the team in kills. Mariah McGill filled in for Kayla Doane in the middle and “did a really good job hitting and blocking,” Hixenbaugh said. Alyssa Aguirre and Bailey Tymchuck did a good job in the back row and Alicia Osorio had a strong game hitting on the outside. The Braves also got to see three of the five foes in the Sunset Conference and faced off against two of them — Bandon and Glide. The third team, Coquille, is Reedsport’s foe for the league opener on Thursday — on the Red Devils’ home court. Coquille and Bandon split their pool matches, but Bandon won the tiebreaker to advance to the semifinals.

“Coquille played well at our tournament this weekend,” Hixenbaugh said. “We need to be focused and limit mistakes when we play them.” From what he saw over the weekend, Hixenbaugh expects the league to be more balanced than the past few years, when Reedsport won the title easily. “(Coquille) will be our first away game this year,” Hixenbaugh said. “It should be a good match. I think our league will be more competitive this year.” Before Saturday’s Dune Classic, Reedsport opened the season Tuesday against tough Class 3A school Creswell, falling 25-23, 25-12, 25-19. The Braves led the first set 23-18 before giving up the final seven points. “Losing that first set took a lot of wind out of our sails,” Hixenbaugh said. White finished with eight kills, two blocks, two digs and two saves. Kaylynn Hixenbaugh had 18 assists. Osorio had five kills and three digs and Ruby Cardoso had two kills and nine digs. After Thursday’s match at Coquille, the Braves host the annual Les Schwab Invitational, which always brings together several of the better small schools. The Braves open with Waldport at 10 a.m., with the winner facing either Culver or Bonanza in the semifinals. On the other half of the bracket, North Douglas faces East Linn Christian at 10 a.m. in the small gym, followed by Lowell and Days Creek. All the teams will play three games. Culver is the defending Class 3A state champion and Days Creek was second last fall, with Reedsport third and North Douglas sixth. Lowell reached the Class 1A tournament and Bonanza was eliminated from the Class 2A playoffs in the round before the tournament. Next Tuesday, Gold Beach visits Reedsport in another league game.

The Braves fell behind 120 at halftime, fought back to have a chance in the game, but ultimately were undone by an inability to make a stop on several different third-down opportunities when they could have gotten


Those fumbles could have made a big difference, since Neah-Kah-Nie was able to capitalize on Reedsport’s miscues, especially one in Reedsport territory after the Braves had pulled within 26-20 in the fourth quarter. Reedsport had some offensive highlights. Matt Rohde carried the ball seven times for 76 yards and scored two of the touchdowns — both on 15yard runs. Rohde also had three catches for 58 yards. New fullback Haden Hinshaw had four carries for 39 yards and speedster Joey Herr had nine carries for 53 yards and scored the other touchdown on an 82-yard

kickoff return. Quarterback Haden Sams completed just 5 of 14 passes for 95 yards. “A lot of it was pressure (by Neah-Kah-Nie), and he missed a few throws,” Nelson said. Twice, Reedsport had the ball inside Neah-Kah-Nie’s 10-yard line and was unable to punch it into the end zone. “We moved the ball fairly well and then we stalled out,” Nelson said. Defensively, Hinshaw led the way with 11 tackles. Cameron Winfield added nine and Herr had seven. Nelson said he liked his team’s effort, especially facing the halftime deficit. “They fought,” he said.

“We were conditioned well. We only had one penalty.” It was the other type of mistakes the coach wishes the team could have back. “We didn’t play our best game,” Nelson said. “That’s for dang sure.” The Braves face a different type of challenge this week, when Waldport comes to town Friday. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. The Irish are 0-2, with losses to defending state champion Oakland (32-6) and Nestucca (50-14). Last year, Waldport had a prolific passing attack, which would pressure Reedsport’s defensive backfield. Waldport won last year’s game 47-12.

Anglers have success with jumbo salmon in ocean Salmon fishing at Winchester Bay remains very inconsistent. However, the largest Chinook seem to be caught a short distance out in the ocean from the Umpqua River Bar. A number of jumbo Chinook weighing from 36 to 47 pounds have been caught in the past 10 days by anglers within a mile of the Umpqua Bar. A few of these lunkers have been caught by anglers trolling herring more than 100 feet below the surface in water at least 200 feet deep. The only thing approaching consistency regarding the Winchester Bay salmon fishery has been the fishing success of guide Darren Rowe, who followed up getting a client, Richard Bagg, of Shedd, into the heaviest salmon turned in during the recent Labor Day Weekend salmon derby by getting boat limits of Chinook during his next couple of guide trips. Darren fishes the Umpqua River Bar and nearby ocean, when conditions allow doing so. As for me stating that I would offer addi-

Pacific Northwest spawn in the spring — for good reason. The newly hatched fish need all the time they can get to grow large enough to survive their first winter, which in the northwest usually means relying on body flesh reserves to help offset meager wintertime feeding conditions. Knowing when different fish species spawn is one of the most important things an angler should know if he wants to become a more effective fisherman. Although there are good numbers of tagged crab crawling around Winchester Bay’s east and west boat basins, they haven’t started being caught in any meaningful numbers yet. The crabbing is gradually improving, and since the Crab Bounty Hunt runs the entire month of September there’s still plenty of time. Some of the 500 rainbows stocked in Lake Marie the last week in August remain uncaught and should start biting better with cooler water temperatures.
