Bandon’s Quonset hut torn down By Amy Moss Strong and Jim Proehl Bandon Western World
BANDON — Social media was abuzz May 8 over the demolition of the building known by most residents as the Quonset hut at Bandon Heights, which was used by the Bandon School District for several functions and under a variety of names over its 65-year history. People came by to take a last photo in front of the building where they attended elementary school at what was then called Bandon

You will be on your own By Amy Moss Strong Bandon Western World
BANDON — It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when. A major local earthquake is predicted to happen along the Cascadia Subduction Zone off Bandon’s coast in the Pacific Ocean, which will then set off a tsunami within minutes. While scientists don’t all agree exactly when this might happen, or to what degree, all do agree that it’s just a matter of time. And, according to similar historic events, the South Coast is overdue. Those who think the recent “little” quakes that have occurred right along the fault line are relieving the pressure, think again. The little quakes are only a few miles down, but the Cascadia fault line is many miles deep. When it goes, the quake and resulting tsunami will be very large. Since roads and bridges will be impassable, and electric, water, sewer will be out, people must be prepared to camp out for a time before any help arrives. Are you prepared? While there is a multitude of informa-
tion surrounding this topic, in addition to regular presentations by experts, many people still seem unable to grasp the importance of preparing. Studies have shown that in the devastating earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan in 2011, those who were prepared fared much better than those who weren’t. The Japanese government also had put into place safeguards that helped with a quicker recovery following the quake and lessened the death toll, which still was huge.
So what are you waiting for? One of the major messages state and local governments have been giving is that when the event happens, residents will be on their own. They can’t expect to be taken care of by city, county, state or national agencies, especially in the first days and even weeks following a devastating quake and tsunami. Residents must prepare for themselves. And it’s not that difficult.

Disaster Movie Night intended to foster discussion Southwestern Oregon Preppers and the city of Bandon will be hosting a Disaster Movie Night at 7 p.m. Friday, May 23, at the Bandon Public Library Sprague Room, 1204 11th St. SW. Admission is free. The movie is “Earthquake 10.5” and is described as, “An earthquake reaching a 10.5 magnitude strikes the West Coast of the
U.S. and Canada. A large portion of land falls into the ocean, and the situation is worsened by aftershocks and tsunami.” After the movie ends, there will be an open discussion to determine what residents should and shouldn’t do in a similar disaster. This is a free public meeting to get
to know fellow local preppers in southwestern Oregon counties and to exchange information and ideas. It is important for individuals to understand that they will be “on their own” in the event of a disaster and not to depend on receiving outside help. Join Southwestern Oregon Preppers on Facebook and/or meetup.com.

BANDON — What if the worstcase scenario happened: A 9.2 magnitude quake followed 8-15 minutes later by a tsunami at high tide during a weekday — a school day? What would happen to the children attending public schools in Bandon? That scenario is more than a possibility, according to some experts. Some local parents, teachers and administrators feel the school district hasn’t done enough to safeguard students when the “big one” hits the South Coast. About 35 people attended a meeting Thursday at The Barn, organized by parent Jaime Sterling, a member of the Ocean Crest Elementary School safety committee. Coos County Emergency Coordinator Mike Murphy gave updated information regarding a local earthquake and tsunami, which are considered overdue to hit the South Coast. Murphy and Sterling believe Ocean Crest, built in 1937, has a high probability — some experts have said 100 percent — of collapse in the case of a major earthquake. In addition, Ocean Crest is in the tsunami inundation zone on recently updated maps prepared by experts, meaning a series of giant waves created by the earthquake will make their way up Gross Creek and right into Ocean Crest. An evaluation of Bandon schools was issued in 2006, directed by DOGAMI using “rapid visual screening” of buildings for potential seismic hazards. That report suggested that while Ocean Crest had a 100 percent probability of collapse, BHS has a 32 percent chance and HLMS 10 percent, not including the gyms. “Most of us live and work in buildings that aren’t up to code,”

Letters Mosquito preferences I recently read that mosquitos have a preference to type O blood and women that are pregnant. There should be a PSA (Public Service Announcement) for Bandon’s residents and Bandon’s visitors that this year’s mosquito infestation is on its way. Just because you have a blood type other than type O and you are not pregnant does not guarantee that you will not be bitten. Please use caution during this season’s invasion. Wayne Miller Bandon
Manager responds to letter In response to Nancy Evans’ letter to the editor in last week’s Bandon Western World regarding food hubs, I do not believe the problem here has anything to do with the mayor or city councilors or city staff being factual. The problem is that the letter to the editor Nancy Evans placed in last week’s Bandon Western World newspaper was not factual. First of all, and contrary to her concluding statements in that letter, the current administration has never “frowned on” the idea of a food hub, but has in fact always been very supportive of the idea. Second, Evans previously promoted only the development of an organic warehouse, whereas the current thinking has evolved to encompass the “food hub” concept. Third, the City Council has continuously exhibited its long-term support for a large number of local efforts to provide food through their many years of financial contributions and subsidies of Community Center kitchen and dining room costs for the Senior Nutrition Program, the Everyone at the Table (EAT) hot meals program, Coastal Harvest food bank, and the annual Thanksgiving and Christmas community meals. Fourth, over the last two years, the city expanded its support for the food industry through the expenditure of over $1 million in Urban Renewal funds for public improvements which leveraged additional private sector investments by the Face Rock Creamery to develop the new cheese factory in Bandon. Fifth, the City Council just recently eliminated the old outdated Woolen Mill Plan and amended the zoning code for the Woolen Mill industrial area to remove a large number of impediments and overly complicated regulations, thereby expanding the area and ease by which the private sector could establish a food hub and other food related businesses. Sixth, Evans was against the city’s efforts to expand the food industry as evidenced by her opposition to those changes. And seventh, Evans has apparently now seen the light and has come to realize that private sector investment is the key to the success of any food hub development, which has actually been the true position of the “current administration” for the last 20 years. As she stated in the email she sent last Friday to the South Coast Development Council and Wild Rivers Coast Alliance, “Hi, I left the conversation in Florence early to get back to work! I really liked the speaker from MMT. So current and right on. But ‘private money’ seems to be the only route he thinks that makes business sense. So I am totally into the concept of private investors now.” Has Evans ever thought of perhaps joining with, instead of fighting against, the efforts of the city and other organizations to promote expansion of the food industry in Bandon? I believe that would be a much better use of her extensive knowledge and talents than her constant grousing, grumbling and accusing. Matt Winkel City Manager City of Bandon

Coaching team is rewarding I want to personally thank this community for your ongoing support of the Bandon High School Speech team. In the 15 years I have coached the BHS Speech team, I have been inspired, encouraged and amazed at the talents and growth that competitive speech affords each participant. I am honored to coach the BHS speech and debate team, and delighted in watching them grow from the motley crew in September to the close-knit family now. They didn’t start out state champions. They developed into fearless speakers and extraordinary communicators bit by bit as they spoke for the Lions, Kiwanis and Rotary clubs, as they competed in round after round on Oregon high school and college campuses, and as they performed at the Sprague Community Theater for Sweet Speeches over the years. This year we have Jeneveve Winchell and Autumn Moss-Strong who qualified in dual interpretation for the National Forensic League National tournament along with Stephanie Gordon, who qualified for the second year in dramatic interpretation. In addition,
second place state champions in dual interpretation are Leo McGeehon and Trenten Gagnon. As a community, we have seen evidence of excellence in speaking and the inspiration it brings. I would like to personally invite you to Sweet Stephanie, Jeneveve and Autumn, which will be presented at the Sprague Community Theater on Thursday, May 22. Along with the evening’s entertainment, we will have a silent auction to raise funds to cover the cost for the team’s traveling this year as well as for the week-long national tournament which will be held in Overland Park, Kansas in June. I have always told my team that the awards are a smokescreen and the real rewards are the growth in character, confidence, creativity and yes, communication excellence. If you have been blessed by the BHS speech team, please consider supporting us through your attendance at Sweet Speeches, donating an auction item, and/or adopting a speaker. Tickets are available from team members, at the high school office, or at the door. Speech changes and enriches lives. It has mine. Ellen Howard BHS Speech Team coach
Shala has earned our trust Shala McKenzie-Kudlac deserves our support and has earned our trust. Shala has handled a variety of cases and projects, ranging from estate planning, land use issues, real estate, contract litigation, family law and landlord/tenant problems, just to mention a few. Some of you may even know Shala as the city attorney for the city of Port Orford, and as assistant attorney for the city of Bandon, which positions she currently holds. She also holds the positions of assistant county counsel for Curry County, as well as legal counsel for the North Bend city/Coos-Curry housing authorities. In addition to all of these duties, she still makes time to be a member of the Foster Care Review Board, as well as serving as a volunteer on the Oregon Community Foundation. Needless to say, this all takes a very organized and well balanced person. Please join me in voting for Shala McKenzie-Kudlac as Circuit Court judge, 15th Judicial District, position 6.

Stacy Rose and Gail Elber will provide the live music and refreshments will be available. The life cycles include newborn sketches on the still white paper, youthful stages, prime of life and to the bringing down the final curtain phase. Tierney said, “It’s a show about the process of a painting, but it’s also a show about the process we all go through, from birth to death. I recently went on a ‘baby worship’ journey to Yoncalla and Eugene, and got to see four wonderful new babies, ranging in age from five weeks to five months — so new, so bright-eyed, so full of possibilities. That’s how a painting starts. Their parents, too, looked young and beautiful to me, so ready to take care of their new arrivals, both the mommies and the daddies holding and feeding them, changing their diapers, rocking them to sleep — they were in the prime of life. Kind of like the middle stages of the paintings. I got to visit the grandmas and grandpas as well. Older, saggier, more wrinkled, but with such joy and wisdom in their faces, a little overworked, maybe, but with the richness and beauty of old age — like a painting in its final stages.” Also featured will be “Beauty and the Birds,” photographs by Susan and Steve Dimock. Susan explores color and texture with the aid of PhotoShop to her already amazing images of the Bandon Beach, of flowers and birds.They have over 30 works in the show downstairs.

Collapse Murphy said. “We need to convince the community that this is a problem and we want to move (Ocean Crest) or do something.” The meeting shocked several parents, who asked what they could do. That led to a group attending the Bandon School Board meeting Monday night, demanding to know what the district is doing. “Why are we now learning about this study?” asked parent Anne Jelinek. “Why has nothing been done with the information received? Does no one find it appalling that parents haven’t been given the chance to help ensure their children’s safety?” Jelinek asked that the topic be put on the next board meeting agenda. In response to an email sent earlier in the day, Buche said the district has hired Sylas Allen, from ZCS Engineering Inc. to do a structural analysis/retrofit design for all three schools. The firm has extensive experience with seismic rehabilitation of struc-

Even though these were done in 2006, they were not released from DOGAMI until later. And then schools like us really didn't get much of a heads up about them until much later.” In the report, they looked at 2,182 school buildings (K-12), and using the RVS, 274 were rated very high collapse potential, 744 were rated high, 497 were rated moderate and 667 were rated low. According to Buche, Ocean Crest school, near the office was ranked very high; the rest of the school, where most classrooms are, was ranked high. The modulars (the
old kindergarten rooms) were ranked very low risk. Bandon High School ranked high; Bandon High School gym ranked high; HLMS ranked low; HLMS gym/music area ranked moderate. Between February and May 2011, the Bandon School Bond Committee put together a facilities bond proposal. “The idea of seismic retrofits of school building RSV’s were not on our radar,” Buche said. Shortly after the bond passed, in June 2011, Buche learned about a seismic rehabilitation grant workshop being held in Coos Bay, and attended. “At that time we learned that the grant required all the structural analysis/retrofit designs to be paid ahead of time and could not be paid for with grant money, even if we received the grant,” Buche explained. “The message from them was even though funding was an issue throughout the state, we should continue to do the things that

would help keep our students safe: Practicing drop, cover and hold on drills, school evacuations, preparing at home by having a family emergency plan and emergency kit, etc. This is just one of the many emergency practice drills we conduct throughout each year.” Buche said the district has agreed to provide space in its soon-to-be-built storage building for emergency kits during the school year, though the administration has not agreed to add the required items onto the school supply list. “We don’t want to create more barriers for those families who already struggle to provide the school supplies,” she said. “Instead, we encourage the parent-teacher-kids association to work on securing those items, or send out a separate request for donations after the school year starts.” Buche said she attended a local presentation and afterward James Roddy from DOGAMI came to her office and talked about earthquake instruction and drills for Bandon students. The school district also has been part of the emergency planning meetings hosted by the city, including preparing to do an all-city drill. “Instead, we had an actual drill when the Japanese earthquake created a distant tsunami warning for us in Bandon,” Buche said.
Just recently tsunami inundation zones have been redrawn, putting Ocean Crest at the edge of the zone, Buche said. The football/track area is still an assembly area. “We will continue to work with DOGAMI to clarify what that means, and we will certainly understand more about that once we hear back from the seismic grant program, as well as what impact that might have on where we park our buses currently.” Sterling told parents and the board that the new maps clearly show that Ocean Crest is completely within the tsunami inundation zone. Sterling said when she read the 2006 reports that she asked Scott Kent, a professional engineer and son of former Bandon school superintendent Kenny Kent, to come take a look. She added that Kent was appalled and wrote in a letter detailing the collapse rate that “seismic rehabilitation of Bandon Senior High School and Ocean Crest Elementary School is a reasonable and timely topic of consideration for the school district.” “I’m very concerned for the children and the people working there,” Sterling said. “I don’t think the town should be known for the 268 children who died because we didn’t do anything about it.”
“There will be a lot of needs that can’t be met.”
City of Bandon
Continues to work on mapping the neighborhoods through the Map Your Neighborhood program. Residents are encouraged to contact BandonPrepares to get help with coordinating their neighbors to have a plan in place for a disaster of any kind. It’s a simple process and volunteers are in place to help. BandonPrepares also is advocating for everyone to have two-day “go-packs” together and carry them in their cars. BandonPrepares would like to purchase radios that will connect police, fire, city, schools, the hospital, CERT team leaders and other connected teams on the same frequency, and would appreciate any donation that comes their way. While most of these have internal radios, BandonPrepares feel it is critical that all be able to communicate easily. There will be a number of required radios and this will be a sizable expense. BandonPrepares also wants the public to know that assembly areas are not shelters; there will be no supplies for the public at an assembly area. Designated assembly areas include: ■ Bandon Christian Fellowship, 1190 Face Rock Drive. ■ Jehovah’s Witness Church, U.S. Highway 101 and Seabird. ■ VFW Hall on Bates Road, off Highway 42S. ■ Junction of Bill Creek Lane and Harlem Avenue (near Harlem Street Apartments). ■ Bandon Community Center/The Barn at City Park. ■ Bandon School District football field. People should be familiar with the location of each of these places.
■ Will open the Emergency Operation Center at the Bandon Fire Hall ASAP after an event. ■ Will start coordinating volunteers to help in various capacities. ■ Has a state-mandated emergency management plan in place. ■ Will have new city shop located at 11th and Rosa Road completed by fall; equipment will be out of inundation zone ■ The city has budgeted an auto shut-off valve at the city water tanks to hold the water.
Coos County The Federal Emergency Management Association needs paperwork for those who want reimbursement. Those who are devoting time to preparedness and to help with recovery following an event should track all volunteers by name and hours (reimbursable at 75 percent) and pre-print volunteer and other forms. Equipment hours can also be billed.
Bandon School Dist. The football field is an Assembly Area (where you can go to avoid the tsunami and meet up with family members) but it is not a shelter. There will be no supplies for the public there. There are state retro-fitting funds available for Harbor Lights Middle School and Bandon High School, but not for Ocean Crest (see related story Page A1). The high school gym and HLMS gym will suffer damage. Kids can be sheltered on the football field bleachers, if safe. The Ocean Crest Safety Committee has put together a small kit for every Ocean Crest child if an earthquake occurs during school hours. These are currently being stored at the Bandon Youth Center until a new storage shed is built in June on school property near the district offices. Schools practice “drop, cover and hold” during the quake and continue to practice fire and tsunami evacuation drills. The most recent schoolwide drill was held May 14. Considering using the busses as shelters if they survive the inundation. Due to power lines, the evacuation route for all Ocean Crest classrooms is along Ninth Street to the football field.
Southern Coos Hospital The hospital’s triage team will set up its 1,100-square-foot tent (stored in 20-foot trailer which also contains a portable hospital) on a site to be designated later.
Explore possibility of storing the trailer at triage location. After a major event, 11th Street will be blocked off so most serious injuries can be moved (if possible) to the hospital. The hospital has a generator and water for hospital-patient use. It also has satellite phone capability.
Churches Bandon Christian Fellowship, 1190 Face Rock Drive is an Assembly Area. Capacity is 300 people. They are looking to upgrade to a Red Cross site if they can qualify. The church has a 2,500-gallon water storage tank.
Bullards Beach State Park The park is fully in the inundation zone. There is one evacuation route: a foot trail near C loop in the campground leads to a hilltop assembly area.
CERT Importance of Community Emergency Response Team training: 90 percent of people are rescued by people they know. CERT is a FEMA program. One class of CERT members has been trained, a second class of high school students recently completed training. CERT members will be offered first aid classes; eventually those also will be offered to the public
When That’s not to say that local officials aren’t doing anything. There are several groups, such as BandonPrepares, who have spearheaded an effort to prepare residents. And the above government entities in Bandon have been meeting to compare and coordinate plans when the big one hits. As an aside, all of the agencies are working on limited budgets, according to
Quonset said one woman. “I went to first and second grade in that school.” Another commented, “That was my school for first and second grade ... that building was in bad shape even way back then, almost 40 years ago.” And yet another, “Jump rope, hop scotch, walking around the track (and holding hands when we walked by the brushy part), playing in the sandy ... area next to the playground. That was a pretty happy and formative part of my life.” Others recalled playing on the playground and running on the track. Several people worried that the huge rhododendron would be damaged (it wasn’t and still stands). Some wanted a piece of the building, which actually is possible. Bandon School District director of operations Kiefer, Hiemer announced at Monday’s school board meeting that he saved bricks from the demolition for anyone who would like one. He said about 50 peoplehave taken a brick from the site so far. But the site will not be vacant for long. According to Superintendent Diane Buche, the district at first thought they might be able to redesign or repair the building, but once they looked into it further, realized it was in such bad shape, they decided to replace it instead. “The Quonset hut was torn down, for safety reasons, and we will be replacing it with a Quonset hut shaped building the same width, shorter length, but only
Bandon Police Dept. ■ Will direct manpower at the time of the quake. ■ Is working with other agencies to be able to communicate with via radio. ■ Recommends people to keep gas tanks at least half full. ■ Reminds people that gasoline doesn’t store much past 90 days.
Bandon Fire Dept. Firefighters are directed to check on families then report to the Fire Hall (may have to walk in). After a disaster, those in charge will establish a command structure as others arrive, and establish priorities. The Fire Department answers to city and county. Firefighters will be on rescue duty. They won’t be able to focus on fires. Residents can help by cleaning up around their homes and eliminating fire hazards. Fire Department will be coordinating with other agencies for a common communication system They will use bulldozers to clear roads and the airport. The Fire Hall building can be sectioned and secured. It has a satellite Internet connection as well as a Ham radio station. The Fire Hall has an emergency generator. Other entities and groups involved include the Port of Bandon and Southwest Oregon Preppers.

After the building is in place, the district will design and place a commemorative plague on the front to honor those who taught or went to school there, Buche added. The building will continue to serve as a batting cage, baseball equipment area and storage area for the district. “I know it brings lots of strong memories for those who did attend, so we decided to keep the Quonset hut feel and honor them with a plaque,” Buche said. “We will then try and landscape an area where the rhododendron is to make it a sitting area.”
History of the building Information sources at the Bandon Historical Society Museum help trace the story of a school building that was built and expanded to meet the needs of the baby boom. At the start of the 1948 school year, Bandon Grade School (not yet named Ocean Crest) housed six grades in six classrooms. The junior high and high school were in a two-story building constructed in 1912 on the east side of town. The dilemma the school district faced was outlined in the pages of the Western World: The high school building was badly out-of-date and census data was predicting an explosion in school enrollment. After a series of public

New school This photo shows the Quonset hut when it was being used as an elementary school classroom. meetings, the school board decided to build a new high school, but promised the public an east side elementary school. How to pay for it remained a problem. A January 1949 Western World headline reported a potential solution: “Quonsets May Cut School Cost.” The article explained that School Board Chairman Otto Shindler and Superintendent Keith Goldhammer were going to visit several Willamette Valley schools that were using “war born Quonset huts” for low cost expansion. A style of prefabricated building used extensively in World War II, Quonset huts got their names from the town in Rhode Island where they were first manufactured. The building never served a military function in Bandon and was not, strictly speaking, military surplus. But with World War II over and the mili-
tary downsizing, there was a glut of Quonset style buildings on the market. In July of 1949 the school board called for bids on the building with the expectation it would be ready when school started in September. An Aug. 11 article is headlined “Quonset Hut Girders Raised,” and reported the school would be built for $16,097 at a cost of $4.80 per square foot. An article later in August announced all first-, second- and thirdgraders who lived east of Fillmore and north of Fifth Street East, plus all primary students on the Prosper bus route would attend the new North Bandon School. The school wasn’t quite ready for the start of school but the Sept. 29, 1949, Western World reported “Classes Begin in New Quonset Grade School.” The article described the school and its three classrooms. students Ninety-nine
were spread evenly among classes taught by Lucy Jacobs, Winifred Ray and Nellie Biggar. Enrollment for the 1949 school year was 35 percent higher than the previous year. The senior class had 19 students, the first grade 72. The baby boom was on. The new building was built with expansion in mind. By the 1952 school year, rooms were added and six grades of east Bandon children were housed in the school. Rooms were also being added to Bandon’s “West Side Elementary,” (later Ocean Crest) and, as time went on, the Quonset hut was increasingly used for the youngest students who moved across town for fourth, fifth and sixth grades. When the Bandon High School building built in 1949 was burned by an arsonist in 1972, the district passed a building bond and used the opportunity to rethink its building configuration. Along with building a new high school and adding a wing to make Harbor Lights into a middle school, the district added another set of rooms to Ocean Crest Elementary and planned to concentrate elementary classes in one building. The last classes of first graders and second attended school in the
Quonset hut (now named Bandon Heights School) for the 1974-75 school year. The memory former students share the most often is of the building’s leaky roof. Buckets and garbage cans lined the hallway to catch the drips, according to students, who also share memories of the sick room and tiny office. The building was used for storage by the school district and other groups for many years. It had a moment in the spotlight when an army of FBI agents descended on it during an investigation into the misuse of federal surplus items. When the high school moved its baseball program to Bandon heights, the building became a storage and practice space for the baseball program. The Bandon Historical Society would like to add more photos of the Quonset hut, especially pictures of the inside of the classrooms, to its collection. Museum volunteers remind the public that they do not have to give photographs away to add them to the museum’s archives. Staff members can scan the photos and return them to the owner. Bandon’s museum is located at the corner of Fillmore Avenue and Highway 101 and is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Face-lift Devon’s Boutique is one of the several businesses in Old Town that took advantage of the city’s facade improvement program. The program has been expanded to include a wider area.
City expands facade improvement program BANDON — The city of Bandon’s program to assist businesses to spruce up their exteriors and make much needed repairs is being expanded outside the urban renewal district. A one-time allotment of business loan funds has been set aside for façade improvement projects for businesses on U.S. Highway 101, Fillmore Street and 11th Street. The Greater Bandon Association has worked with the city in developing the current program and reviewing loan applications. “Many businesses outside the urban renewal district became very excited about the possibilities when the façade improvement loan program started in July, 2012,” said GBA Harv board president Schubothe. “Some were then extremely disappointed to find they were not eligible because they were located outside the district. The whole purpose of the program is to improve the appearance of existing buildings and businesses in our town. This
expansion will encourage more private investment in Bandon properties and businesses. Bandon’s image, marketability and economic vitality will be enhanced as a result.” The program in the expanded area is modeled after the existing façade improvement programs in the urban renewal district. It is a loan program requiring collateral that also requires the business to be operating and providing goods and services to the public. The zero percent interest rate is attractive and the loan has one other unique feature as it is forgivable. After each year, an additional 20 percent is forgivable if the business or property owner is still in the same location. After five years, the entire loan is forgivable. Eligible projects include painting exterior walls and trim; repair of awnings, windows, doors; repair or replacement of signs; construction of entry ways and repair of exterior masonry or siding. The building or proper-
ty owner must contribute at least 50 percent of the project cost, and the maximum loan amount is $5,000. The existing program for façade improvement in the urban renewal district also continues. Since the program’s inception, the loans approved in the district total $32,533. This investment will result in $90,905 in improvements. Locations receiving loans thus far include Bandon Mercantile Company, Winter River Books, Second Street Gallery, Bandon Coffee Café, The Big Wheel General Store, Alloro Wine Bar, Bandon Baking and Deli, Devon’s Boutique, Lloyd’s, Fred Law Offices, Carelton Historical Society Museum and the Cobbler’s Bench. Devon’s Boutique received the 2013 “Excellence in Downtown Revitalization Award for Best Façade Renovation Under $7,500” at last year’s Oregon Main Street conference. Applications for both Façade Improvement programs are available at City Hall.

Bandon girls prep for state golf tournament By John Gunther
Monday and Tuesday at Trysting Tree in Corvallis. Bandon played a pre-state tournament there a few weeks ago and Whitney had her best score at that event, while the team placed third out of nine teams. “We did great at the prestate invitational,” Schneider said.

BANDON — Bandon’s girls golf team had the luxury of knowing it was going to the Class 4A-3A-2A-1A state tournament no matter how well it performed at this week’s district tournament. The Tigers were the only squad with a complete team at Bandon Crossings, meaning they were guaranteed a trip to state. That didn’t mean they didn’t try to put up a good score. “I couldn’t be more proud,” said Bandon coach Christopher Schneider. “They were all amazing.” Grace McMahon finished one shot behind medalist Brianna Duff of Coquille with a two-day total of 210. “Yesterday, I was happy; today wasn’t my best,” McMahon said after the final round. “I know there’s a lot of places I could have made up for it, but she deserves it.” Meanwhile, Nina Pelayo shot her best round of the year with a 98 on Tuesday, the second day of the district tournament, and finished two shots behind McMahon. Liza Skeie and Alaina Russell both were consistent for both rounds and Michelle Whitney had a great first round before being disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard the second day. “I’m happy,” McMahon said. “I think overall we’ve played
BOYS Bandon’s boys weren’t as fortunate as the girls, placing third in the Class 3A-2A-1A District 3 tournament, also held at Bandon Crossings. Gold Beach, which Bandon had beaten regularly during the season, grabbed the district’s second spot at state behind champion Oakridge. Gold Beach finished with a two-day total of 732, while the Tigers finished at 739. Ethan Wickstrom led Bandon with a score of 177, while Braden Fugate finished at 178. Tristian Davidson was at 186, Shelby Banister at 198 and Leo McGeehon at 230. While coach Scott Millhouser was disappointed for the kids, he looked back fondly on the season. “Everyone worked hard to improve,” he said. “We didn’t quite accomplish our goals, but we have everybody back (next year). “They definitely can be proud.” Gerry Snyde of Oakridge beat his brother, Joel, in a playoff for medalist honors.

Tigers host district this week By John Gunther Bandon Western World
Bandon enters the district track meet this weekend with hopes for several Tigers to advance to next week’s Class 3A state meet in Eugene. The competition, which the Tigers are hosting, begins at noon on Friday and 11 a.m. on Saturday. The top two finishers in each event advance to state. “We are excited for district,” said Bandon head coach Sharon Haga, who coaches the team with her son, Sean. “Sean has a great set of jumpers in Rowan Reimer in the long jump; Toni Reshea Hall in the high jump; and Mitchell Brown, Hannah Smith and Jacob Taylor in the triple jump,” Sharon Haga said. Reimer, a freshman, has come on at the end of the season and ranks second in her event to Coquille freshman Darian Wilson. Meanwhile, Hall has the best clearance in the league in the high jump by
a full 3 inches and Smith has consistently been at least a foot better than anyone else in the district, which also includes Glide, Cascade Christian, St. Mary’s, Lakeview, Rogue River and Illinois Valley. Brown and Taylor rank fourth and fifth in the boys triple jump. In the throwing events, Taylor ranks second and Aaron Willings is not far behind in the javelin. “Our freshman thrower Homar Ferrer is surprising us every meet,” Sharon Haga said. Unfortunately, Ferrer is up against two of Class 3A’s best throwers in the shot put and discus — Coquille’s Brandon Bowen and Cascade Christian’s Aaron Cesaro. On the track, the Tigers have high hopes for a pair of sophomore distance runners. “Sarah Cutler in the 800 and Aida Santoro in the 3,000 are practicing hard every day and they love running,” Haga said. Santoro ranks first in the 3,000 and Cutler
ranks third in the 800. Smith ranks high in the 100 meters. “Mitchell Brown is amazing to watch in the 100 meters. Alex Winston is getting better every meet in the 100 and 200.” senior Meanwhile, Logan Shea who is new to track this year, has proven solid in the 200 meters. Brown combines with Taylor, Shea and Shannon Forty to give Bandon the squad ranked second in the 4x100 relay. “We get our handoffs right and the boys 4x100 should be the race of the meet,” Haga said. Bandon’s girls were third, while the boys were fourth at last week’s Coos County Meet. Santoro had a big personal best to place second in the 3,000, while Cutler was second in the 800 and fourth in the 1,500. Smith placed third in the 100 and Eleanor Winston was fourth in the 200 and sixth in the 100. In the field events, Hall won the high jump, while Smith was second in the triple jump. Reimer

was second in the long jump and eighth in the javelin and Kristina Knox was seventh in the shot put. For the boys, Mitchell was third and Winston sixth in the 100. Shea and Winston were third and fourth, with Forty eighth, in the 200. Zane Olive was sixth in both the 800 and 1,500 and Tim Hatfield was eighth in the 3,000. The Tigers also placed third in the short relay. In the field events, Ferrer was fourth in the shot put. Taylor was third and Willings seventh in the javelin. Brown placed fifth in the triple jump.

Anglers are still hooking into rainbow trout in area lakes Local lakes : Anglers continue to report excellent rainbow trout fishing on the South Coast. Boaters reported good numbers of trout taken from Garrison, Floras and Bradley lakes last week. A surge of aquatic vegetation is making it more difficult for bank anglers to access good trout fishing on some local lakes. Trout fishing in Tenmile Lakes has been good in recent weeks. Boaters are having the best success trolling Wedding Ring spinners or other types of spinners tipped with a nightcrawler. Anglers are also catching 3- to 5pound largemouth bass out at Tenmile Lakes.

Harvesters should pay close attention to the surf forecasts and be on the beach one to two hours before low tide. When the swells are above 8 feet, the razor clam harvesting can be very difficult because the clams tend to show much less in those conditions.

Fourth of July parade planning underway BANDON — Planning for this year’s Bandon Fourth of July parade is underway. The theme for this year’s parade is “Proud to be an American,” after the popular Lee Greenwood song. Anyone wishing to have their entry judged should follow the theme, although it is not mandatory. However, all entries should be patriotic in nature. The parade will start at the usual time of 10 a.m. on Ninth Street Southwest, with check-in beginning at 8 a.m. in the
Dairy Queen parking lot. The route winds from Ninth Street down U.S. Highway 101, then through Old Town. Among the awards to be presented are the Grand Marshal’s prize for the best of the best. The award comes with a gold trophy on a cherry wood base. Next is the Mayor’s Award for the best overall. That prize is a cherry wood plaque. There also will be first, second and third place ribbons awarded to the following categories: Vehicle, marching, float, and dog and horse. Other entries are wel-
come (bicycles, etc.). Entries will be judged on creativity, beauty, imagination and patriotism. Anyone interested in participating can contact parade chairwoman Dawn Dixon at 541-252-7322 or 541-347-5683 or via email at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Entries also will be accepted the day of the parade, but Dixon encourages pre-registration. Dixon also has created a patriotic “Stars and Stripes” crocheted afghan
that is being raffled (date and time to be announced). Tickets cost $1 each or six for $5 and all proceeds will be used for the 2015 parade. A website with more details on the Fourth of July parade can be viewed at http://bandon4thofjuly.webs.com. Other activities are planned for the Fourth of July holiday, including the annual Lions Family Day in the Park and the Chamber of Commere’s fireworks display at dusk over the waterfront.
Golf for Health Classic returns July 18-19
VFW thanks first responders The Bandon VFW Post No. 3440, VFW Auxiliary and the American Legion hosted a first response appreciation dinner for the Bandon Police Department, Bandon Fire Department, local paramedics and their families April 5. Those attending were treated to a meal and cake. A cake was delivered that evening to the hospital as well. A highlight of the evening was all the children each leaving with a balloon. “We wanted to honor those who respond to our 911 calls and who make our city a wonderful and safe place to live,” said Madeline Seymour, VFW Auxiliary president. From left: Nick Siewell of BFD, Tony Byrd, BPD and Chief Bob Webb, BPD.
BANDON — Bandon’s largest and most prestigious fundraising golf tournament, the Southern Coos Health Foundation’s Bandon Golf for Health Classic, which benefits Bandon’s hospital as well as several community healthcare events, returns to Bandon Crossings on July 18 and 19 for its seventh annual competition. Teams comprising over 100 players are expected to compete in this best-ball scramble. The insurance firm of Chivaroli and Associates returns for the seventh time as the major sponsor of the event. Other top sponsors, including Structured and Banner Bank, will be helping to assure the success of the tournament, which is also the top fundraising activity for the year for the Southern Coos Health Foundation. Well over $100,000 has been raised
in year’s past to purchase state-of-the-art equipment and improvements to the hospital, according to organizers. The fun-filled weekend begins Friday, July 18, at Bandon Crossings with a skills challenge and mini-tournament. Two-person teams will compete for prizes, with sign-up from 4 to 4:30 p.m. and tee-off at 4:45 p.m. This exciting new event will be followed by a sponsor appreciation party at Home on the Range at Bandon Crossings, starting at 6 p.m. The event will feature hors d’oeuvres catered by Edgewaters, a cash bar serving wine and beer, and live and silent auctions. Amerinet returns as the seven-year sponsor of the party. On Saturday morning, July 19, the Bandon Golf for Health Classic gets underway with an 8:15
a.m. continental breakfast. At 9 a.m., the Best of Bandon Putting Contest, with a crisp $100 bill as top prize, gets underway. Meanwhile, the driving range is open from 8 to 10:30 a.m. so players can warm up prior to the 10:40 a.m. player’s meeting and 11 a.m. shotgun start. Four person teams will play their best ball in a scramble event on the beautiful Bandon Crossing Golf Course. This year, the greens keepers are promising to set some pin locations that will “send shivers up the player’s spines!” There are prizes for a hole-in-one on any Par 3, and if it’s made on No. 14, the player wins $25,000 cash. At the tournament’s end, a sumptuous barbecue dinner awaits, as well as raffle drawings, a live auction and some more surprises as a way of thanking participants.
Event results will be posted, and team and individual awards will be presented. The top team members will join the previous six winning teams in having their names engraved on the impressive Magness Cup, the tournament’s roving trophy named for the late Bill Magness, who donated the land that Southern Coos Hospital sits upon. Last, but not least, is the grand finale. At the end of the program, one player’s name will be drawn for the chance to make the biggest shot of all, a hole-in-one to win a $1 million payoff. Is this the year some skilled (and lucky) player finally does it? For more information, or to sign up a team or a player, or as a sponsor, go to www.southercoosorg.golfreg.com or call Southern Coos Health Foundation at 541-329-1040.
