Trying to keep the buzz at bay By Emily Thornton Bandon Western World

COQUILLE — Most of the buzzing has stopped now, but talks have begun for next year’s mosquito season. Nikki Zogg, administrator for Coos County Public Health, said last week that U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service asked her to come up with a budget by Dec. 12 for mosquito monitoring and abatement next year at the Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge.

She must budget for a seasonal worker to monitor the land three days per week during peak season, which runs between April and October. The worker will monitor the mosquito breed and population, as well as diseases. The county could begin some kind of eradication efforts in April, which would be done by a contractor, she said. The Fish and Wildlife Service hopes to have some plans approved in January or February, but won’t be able to begin creating about five miles of tidal chan-

nels until June or July, Zogg said. The timing didn’t seem ideal, but there wasn’t another option. “The mechanical pieces aren’t going to be in place anytime soon,” she said. Part of the reason was because Fish and Wildlife cut 6 percent of its workforce, she said. The agency also had to get required permits from the National Environmental Protection Agency and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, she said. The county must foot the bill again

Bus Jam From left, Bandon High School seniors Shawn Peters, Elle Iverson and Evan Henson with the BHS Leadership Class and the BHS Rotary Interact Club help out with the second-annual Bus Jam on Saturday at the Bandon Shopping Center by weighing food and tallying gifts donated. The local event raised more than $600 in cash, 479 pounds of food and 202 toys, all of which, plus some, will benefit local families. The Coos Bay event, held in front of the Bi-Mart stores in Coos Bay and North Bend, raised even more and exceeded this year’s goals, according to Stephanie Kilmer, Bus Jam organizer. The event is sponsored by K-DOCK and local partners include US Cellular and Rosey Thomas, Bandon Rotary, Bandon School District, BHS Interact Club and Bandon Western World and The World newspapers.

Bandon Western World

BANDON — Trust Management Services recently granted $5,989.91 to replace and upgrade the computer system and peripherals the Bandon Historical Society uses to manage its photo collection. The grant will allow the museum to replace its central processing unit, scanner and printer as well as purchase software and digital photo supplies. The museum uses its computer system to digitize, restore, print and archive the photographs in its collection. The digitized photos are also posted on web sites, used to publish books and displayed to support educational presentations. Museum volunteers use the system to print the photographs displayed in the museum. The museum will sell prints of most of the images in its collection. The computer equipment the museum has been using is nearing 12 years old, the storage capacity of the CPU is nearly full, and the computer has had to go into the shop twice in the last year to fix breakdowns.

Medical marijuana dispensaries in Bandon?

Population of Bandon unchanged BANDON — People come and people go, but the population remains the same in Bandon. That’s according to the preliminary 2013 population estimates from the Portland State University Population Research Center that were provided to the city of Bandon recently. The July 1, 2013 population estimate for Bandon is 3,100, which is identical to the 2012 population estimate. The 2010 Census count for Bandon showed a population of 3,066 as of April 1, 2010, which was 233 people above the 2000 Census count of 2,833. So, if the latest estimate is accurate, Bandon’s population has only grown by 267 (9.4 percent) over the last 13 years, for an annual average growth rate of less than 1 percent per year. According to those figures, the annual growth rate slowed to 0.37 percent — approximately 1⁄3 of one percent — over each of the last three years and to zero percent during this last year. The Portland State University Population Research Center was formed in 1956 for the purpose of preparing annual population estimates for cities and counties to provide the basis for the distribution of state taxshared revenues.

next year and will be reimbursed by U.S. Fish and Wildlife, Zogg said. Commissioners felt no one else would help. “There’s no other government agency around that can do what the county can do,” said Commissioner John Sweet. The county was slated to spend $5,000 from its economic development fund in 2013 eradicating mosquitoes in the Bandon Marsh National Wildlife

more successful this year than last, according to Port of Bandon General Manager Gina Dearth. The marketplace had brought in a little more than $50,000 in revenue for the port this season. That’s just the amount the port has earned from table rental fees and compared to $29,000 last year and about $5,400 a year before the port purchased the building, Dearth said. There are about 55 vendors registered, though not all of them are there at the same time. “It’s been a successful run and several vendors are doing quite well,” said Trudy Spanier, port administrative assistant. During December, the Old Town Marketplace farmers and crafters market turns into the Holiday Marketplace. Fresh produce, baked goods, smoked meats, seafood, nuts, fudge, cranberries, cheesecake, tie-dye, scrapbooks, hand-carved wooden items, crafts and jewelry are just some of the items offered. All purchases are eligible to be used to redeem the Bandon Chamber of Commerce Shop Bandon holiday glasses. The Old Town Holiday Marketplace is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13, and Saturday, Dec. 14, then will close for the season. It is located in the former Bandon Fisheries building at 250 First St. SW on the waterfront in Old Town. Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive on the charter vessel Prowler at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14. Everyone is invited to stroll with Santa through Old Town, visit Bandon merchants and the “Shop Bandon” campaign as he makes his way to the marketplace to visit with children for photos taken by Cardas Photography from 1:30-3:30 p.m. The port hopes to reopen the Old Town Marketplace next April, as it did this year.

BANDON — Gov. John Kitzhaber signed House Bill 3460 into law on Aug. 14, authorizing the Oregon Health Authority to establish procedures to license and regulate medical marijuana dispensaries. Those regulations go into effect on March 1, 2014, and have specific requirements for licensing, locating and operating medical marijuana dispensaries. The subject of whether and how the city should regulate, license, and/or otherwise control or prohibit the location of medical marijuana dispensaries was discussed by the City Council at a work session last month. The city has not yet received any applications for medical marijuana dispensaries, but it is anticipated that such applications could be received after the March 1, 2014, effective date of House Bill 3460 and its implementing regulations, said City Manager Matt Winkel. Some cities control them under their business license program, many of which prohibit anything that is illegal under either state or federal law. “So, since marijuana dispensaries are still illegal under federal law, those cities maintain they would not allow them since they would not be able to obtain a business license,” Winkel said. “The city of Bandon, however, does not require business licenses, so that avenue is not available here.” But, Winkel said, depending on one’s interpretation of Bandon’s existing

Commercial crab season opens Dec. 16 BANDON — Fresh Dungeness crab is back on the menu for holiday feasts after fishery managers determined the fishery was ready to open Dec. 16 on the Oregon Coast. The commercial Dungeness crab season on the Oregon Coast is scheduled to open Dec. 1 each year, but was delayed this year because crab on some parts of the coast did not measure up during pre-season testing, according to a press release from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Hugh Link, executive director of the Oregon Dungeness Crab Commission, said there were three areas of concern, including Astoria and Newport, but that recent testing showed “nice, full crab for all of the Oregon Coast.”

A season of giving In all of the holiday bustle, it never ceases to amaze me how many Bandon residents find the time and money to help others. Of course, this isn’t only a holiday phenomenon, the BANDON generosity of people CURRENTS here continues year-round, but is definitely more pronouned during the holidays. The Bus Jam was just one event that raised a significant amount of food, toys, gifts AMY MOSS and money. The STRONG Bandon Lions are holding their annual food drive and already have gathered thousands of pounds of food to

donate to the local food banks. The VFW Auxiliary is gathering items to put together Christmas baskets that include everything needed to make a turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Ray’s Food Place is encouraging shoppers to purchase a bag of groceries for $15 that is donated locally as well. Elaine Caldwell and her daughter Laura Doffing again spearheaded the Tree of Giving and Toys for Tots drive. Stores and individuals donate food and money for the free holiday meals at The Barn. Billy Smoothboar’s is holding its second-annual event for local children in need and the Bandon Police Department is gearing up for its Shop with a Cop so children can choose gifts for their families.

Rotary adopts a local family and purchases gifts, clothing and food for them. Dr. Dowling donates two full days to giving residents free dental care. I’m sure there’s more. And I’m not even taking into account the amount of planning, preparing and executing each function or fundraiser requires. How people fit those extra activities into their busy holiday schedule is beyond me, but somehow they do. But they see the need and are moved to action. It all boils down to a season of giving. And isn’t that truly what Christmas is about?

Red will be missed I think many in the business community and others who knew

Cathy Bernal, called Red for many years because of her short, bright red hair, were shocked and saddened by her sudden passing Monday from complications following gallbladder surgery. Cathy worked at Devon’s Boutique, and was involved with the Chamber of Commerce and many other activities that promoted businesses. She served on local boards and attended and worked on many events. Devon and Stan are devastated and have set up an account at Bank of America, Bandon branch, to help Cathy’s family pay for funeral and other expenses. It’s called the Cathy Bernal Memorial Contributions fund. We will miss that sweet lady.

Letters Have some patience and heart In reference to the post office complaints in the Nov. 21 Bandon Western World letters to the editor, all those employees bend backwards for us 12 months of the year. They have been shorthanded for a few years, so please have some patience and heart — we all need that. Betty Ruzicka Bandon

Feed the hummingbirds While shopping this past week, a clerk in a Bandon store and I chatted about the coming cold snap. I said, “I guess I’ll have to bring my hummingbird feeder in at night and trot it back out in the morning.” The clerk responded, and from her words and her tone of voice, it was evident that she was very upset with me. She said, “Well, I stop feeding them so they will migrate south like they are supposed to, and they don’t stay here to freeze to death!” I thought her ideas were incorrect, but wasn’t informed enough to speak to them, so I let it pass. When I got home I researched the issue. First off, the species Anna’s hummingbird winters over in Oregon, and is seen as far north as Portland. Anecdotal evidence indicates that they can endure temps well down into the 20s, maybe lower. Secondly, hormones, not human activity, drive the instinct to migrate, and nothing people do can overcome that instinct. For the species that do migrate, it is especially helpful for them to “bulk up” at our feeders in preparation for the trip, so taking down our feeders prematurely does not work in their best interest. Finally, experts say that people should keep their feeders up until two weeks have passed since the last sighting of a hummingbird. I am happy to report that two Anna’s hummingbirds somehow made it through these recent frigid nights and visit our feeder every day. I thought that the well-intentioned woman in the store and all of us who love birds would want to know. Jackie Orsi Bandon

Make an effort to help I was in Walmart yesterday looking for a new laptop. A woman on a riding-cart approached the aisle where I was standing. She had a small toddler lodged between her feet in the little space of the machine’s floor. The toddler was crying. As she rode into my field of vision, she screamed “Shut up!” at him and proceeded to slap him — hard — in the face. I think, especially at holiday time, it would be a good idea to remind stressed out parents that there is

help out there if they feel frustrated and out of control with their kids. If you can, please post, in big letters, the phone numbers of counselors, shelters and programs that exist in your community that are designed to support parents, and help children who are being abused. After this shocking incident, I talked with the managers at Walmart, and I went looking for this woman to talk with her. I planned to try to help her, or if she resisted, to call the local police. She had quickly disappeared, and that small boy has gone back to his home to face whatever she dishes out. But she obviously has problems — she could not walk around the store on her own and was likely short on money — and those are just the problems that were somewhat obvious. Please, let’s try to make an extra effort to help abused kids and their parents. I would appreciate it if you would use the power of your publication to do what you can to raise the awareness of your readers about support to prevent child abuse. Caroline Bloomfield Bandon

‘A Christmas Tale’ offered by New Artists E. Ben Eazer is the proprietor of the “Ben Eazer Used Car Company” in the little hamlet of Dickens in upstate New York. The setting is Christmas, 1961. Ben’s disposition is the consequence of years of toil in the pursuit of personal wealth. Although he has a family, he prefers to live alone without responsibility or dependents … until! Ben sells an old, dilapidated and unsafe automobile to a poverty-stricken family. Divine intervention brings about what seems to be the worst outcome. Ben is emotionally shaken as he is come upon by three angels who recount to him his past, present and future. Does this sound like the plot of the Dickens Christmas classic? Of course it is. However, it is flavored with a more current setting and entirely different situation.

This tale, in the form of a stage play, is authored by a local theatrical producer, Dan Almich, cofounder of New Artists Productions. “A Christmas Tale” is intended to remind us that no matter how far or how long one goes astray, God is always prepared to guide us back to His side. “A Christmas Tale” will be performed by an all youth New Artists Productions cast of 22 at the Sprague Community Theater in Bandon on Dec. 20, 21 and 22. Show times are 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Admission to each of the three showings is free in appreciation for audience support of New Artists Productions

Marijuana zoning ordinance, medical marijuana dispensaries could conceivably be allowed in some of the city’s residential zones as well as the commercial zones. For example, the R-1 and R-2 residential zones list as conditional uses drugstores, provided that they are “primarily for the sale of drugs.” Several other zones allow such uses as “health care service facilities” or “medical, dental or related office or clinic.” “Although the drafters

of those older regulations probably did not intend medical marijuana dispensaries, proposers could argue that those uses are allowed according to the letter of the law,” Winkel said. After discussing the subject, the consensus of the City Council was to have staff prepare an amendment to the zoning regulations that would eliminate the ambiguous wording, prepare an ordinance banning medical marijuana dispensaries

Mosquito Refuge. Bandon Dunes offered Golf Resort $10,000 toward abatement. The city of Bandon also offered to assist with the cost, if needed. But the Fish and Wildlife Service ended up footing the bill of applying larvacide directly over the refuge at a cost of $35,501.40. In September, the county hired a company to conduct an aerial application of MetaLarv pellets, a larvacide, over less than 400 acres in the marsh. Zogg said she wasn’t sure what larvacide would be used next year. Dibrom, an adulticide, isn’t in the agency’s plans for next year yet, due to its possible adverse health risks. Some people said the answer isn’t pesticide applications. “The only way to solve it is to drain and dike the Bandon Western

Coastwide crab quality testing showed all areas now meet minimum test criteria, the release stated. Fishery managers from Oregon, Washington and California met Dec. 5 and mutually decided to open commercial crabbing from the OregonCalifornia border to Klipsan Beach, Wash., on Dec. 16. Commercial crabbers are allowed to set their gear three days before the season opens, so ocean watchers will see the lights of crab boats off most of the coast as early as Dec. 13. Link says the news is a great relief for fishermen. “I think they’re all glad to have a date for them to start,” He said. “It’s good news, and we’ll now have Oregon Dungeness crab for Christmas.” There is one big step remaining in the process. According to Link, fishermen and processors were to meet earlier this week for negotiations to set an opening price. Those negotiations will be overseen by the Oregon Department of Agriculture. Recreational harvest of Dungeness crab in the ocean off Oregon opened as scheduled on Dec. 1. The recreational harvest of Dungeness crab in Oregon’s bays and estuaries is open year-round.

County commissioners said they’d informed several federal politicians of the county’s plight this year, and would do the same next year in hopes of getting help ahead of time. “I think the three commissioners should take it upon themselves to tell the federal government,” Sweet said.

Tigers take on season with young lineup By George Artsitas Bandon Western World

BANDON — The season hadn’t even started and Bandon already was hit with the injury bug. Bandon’s sole senior, Hailey Iverson, will be out at least until January with a torn anterior cruciate ligament and medial patellofemoral ligament. Iverson is a key to the Bandon offense and irreplaceable as a leader to the team. Her doctors are hopeful she will be able to make it back by January. “It’s been hard and the games haven’t even started,” Iverson said. “It’s been very frustrating, but has made me work harder to overcome the prognosis. I really want to play this season.” The Tigers will just have to roll with a very young team, devoid of any seniors throughout the roster, but getting their sophomores to step up on offense. Between Iverson and graduating senior Riley Wahl, Bandon is out an easy 30 points a night that they’ll need from someone else. “That’s just high school basketball. Kids get sick, they get injured,” head coach Amanda Duey said. “We just have to roll with the punches and someone will step up and want to lead.” The Tigers expect that person to be Raelyn Freitag. The sophomore was a key player last year and is ready to step up to be the primary scorer. She knows she’s capable of taking on the extra load. “It’s definitely an area I’ll need to step up in,” Freitag said. “It weighs heavily on my mind sometimes, but I’m a competitor and love to win and feel like I have the ability to step up and handle the pressure.” Last season, the Tigers saw their play improve sharply and they were competitive in most games, but their record still read an unfortunate 4-8 in the Sunset Conference and 9-11 overall. Now this year they’ll try to win with a younger squad. They have a group of five sophomores with Toni Hall, Kori Nemec, Ali Richert and Savannah Williams along with Freitag, who will all have to contribute major minutes in the first part of the season. As juniors, Krista Peters and Liza Skeie are expected to bring leadership.

Opening win The Tigers got the season off to a successful start Tuesday night, beating host Pacific 46-34 in overtime. Freitag hit a free throw with one second on the clock to force overtime and then Bandon kept the Pirates from scoring in the extra session to pull away for the victory. Freitag and Williams both scored 11 points — Williams had seven of hers in overtime — and Toni Hall added 10 for Bandon. Skeie scored seven points in the victory. Riley Engdahl had a game-high 18 points for Pacific. The Tigers also played North Bend on Wednesday to make up for one of the games lost last weekend when Pleasant Hill and Santiam Christian couldn’t make the trip to the South Coast because of the winter storm.

BANDON — It’s easy for Bandon boys basketball to get excited for the season ahead. They just can’t wait for it to finally get here. The 2013-2014 campaign will be heavy in experience with eight seniors coming back to play. They essentially bring back the entire cast of characters from last year, only losing one senior who played limited minutes. The only issue is that the weather has forced them to cancel their first couple games this season. With all the excitement around, head coach Ken Nice wants to see how this experienced cast can play.

Still waiting for that next big rain event on the coast Local lakes: Because of the frigid weather and lack of effort, we did not receive any reports from anglers fishing local lakes this past week. As temperatures begin to climb, look for anglers to continue to troll for rainbow trout. The next good rain event should push the remainder of the coho salmon run through Tenmile Lakes and anglers trolling this winter for rainbow trout should start to pick up an occasional winter steelhead. Local rivers: After last week’s rain anglers fishing the Chetco River reported good catches of fall Chinook salmon and winter steelhead. The river has since dropped down to low and clear conditions making it tougher to hook fish. Not many plunkers out on the lower Rogue River’s gravel bar due to the low river conditions.

Holiday Lights at Shore Acres

Tis the season Holiday lights fill all corners of the main garden at Shore Acres State Park. The lights display is open until New Year’s Eve.

Annual extravaganza is on display until New Year BY CHELSEA DAVIS Bandon Western World

CHARLESTON — Two new sculptures have been added to Shore Acres State Park’s holiday lights display this year. Visitors will see a new lighthouse sculpture, made by volunteer Ray Daniels, and a bumblebee sculpture, made by David Bridgham, who coordinates the annual display alongside his wife, Shirley. There are two major themes in the sculptures: b o ta n i c a l ga rd e n s a n d marine life. Daniels’ 15foot lighthouse fit right in. “I originally built it 10 years ago as a stage decoration for my daughter,” he said. “She was the grand worthy advisor of The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls ... a young women’s youth group.” At the annual convention,

his daughter decorated the stage with an ocean theme. Daniels built the base of the lighthouse out of wooden sticks and cardboard covering, while the top has a rotating stained glass lens that has the seven colors of the rainbow, plus white. “The lighthouse had been up in my barn ever since, up in the rafters in storage,” he said. “Just last January I happened to be up in the barn and


saw the thing. I thought, ‘I wonder if Shore Acres would be interested in the lighthouse for part of their Christmas decorations.’” The Bridghams were definitely interested, so Daniels got to work making sure the lighthouse could withstand the weather. He built a new base out of metal and tweaked the top. This year another volunteer suggested Bridgham build a bumblebee. “We have such a large group of tried and true volunteers that work with us year to year to year that when they think of an idea, I listen, especially that fits our themes and is doable,” he said. Bridgham has created almost every single undersea garden sculpture, as well as the mushrooms and butterflies. He uses small-gauge wire that he can bend by hand. “If I do thicker ones, like


half-inch rebar, I’d have to heat it up and figure out how to bend it,” he said. “There are people who are very good at that, like Eric Luckman at Quadel’s. He has fabricated

■ from Page B1 “We’re optimistic, but you don’t really know until you play a game,” Nice said Saturday. “I want to see where we’re at. We’re getting sick of playing against each other.” When they finally did play on Tuesday, Bandon pounded Pacific, winning 75-18. The Tigers are excited about their experience, especially after a summer that saw them go to a tournament in Seaside that brought them together and Nice said gave them a “big leap.” Logan Shea is a 5-foot-11 shooting guard, probably Nice’s most athletic Tiger, and plays huge compared to his size. Between the bonding over the summer and the work they’ve put in, Shea feels his team has earned confidence going into season.

“I’m really looking forward to this year,” Shea said. “ I feel really confident is us. We put in the work, have 5 a.m. practices. I think we’ll be good this year.” Fellow senior Evan Henson is a long guy who at 6-foot-6 and 240 pounds is definitely a post presence for the Tigers. He has a steep personal goal. Henson wants to be Sunset Conference MVP, and thinks he can do it after being an honorable mention selection last year, He’s confident in himself, but when it comes to his team, he’s not really accepting anything other than the playoffs “We’re extremely excited,” Henson said. “We want to come back and impress a lot of people.” This year, the league has two playoff sports in Class 3A from among the Tigers, Coquille and Glide. Bandon faces both those teams at home twice and on the road once, boosting the team’s chances.

The roster also includes Shawn Peters, the football team’s quarterback described by Nice as strong and active, with quick hands that make him a sneaky good defender. John Wilhite is a 6-foot-4 post guy who has improved a ton over the past four years. Mason Berry, Derik Cox and JJ Witte have solid defensive skills they can contribute. Besides the seniors, sophomore Tristian Davidson will be starting and a key part of the Tiger offense. He’s 6-foot-4 and plays more of a swing forward position. He started every game as a freshman, leading him to not have to worry about meshing with the older guys. Nice calls him a lengthy guy who is versatile on the glass and can shoot well. Davidson along with the eight seniors set up for a talented and experienced team ready to make a big run. “We have the parts to be successful,” Nice said. “I know there are certain players on our team that are never going to take a break.” In Tuesday’s big win, Henson had a game-high 20 points and Shea added 12. Peters and Davidson scored eight points each, Leo McGeehon added seven and Wilhite and Cox each had six. All 11 Bandon players who appeared in the game scored. The Tigers were back on the court Wednesday night against North Bend (results weren’t available by press time) and have a pair of road games coming up in the next week. They travel to Cave Junction on Saturday for a doubleheader with Illinois Valley and then visit Powers on Tuesday, their last game before the Oakland tournament starts Dec. 27.
