Commissioners outline SCCF
By John Gunther Bandon Western World
BANDON — The Oregon Parks Commission last week approved a land transfer of 280 acres of the Bandon State Natural Area to Bandon Biota for Mike Keiser to build the Bandon Links golf complex. Keiser owns Bandon Dunes Golf Resort and also owns Bandon Biota LLC, a separate company. The transfer still faces one big hurdle, since the land that would go to Bandon Biota was sold to the Oregon Parks Department by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management on the condition that it remain open to public outdoor recreation. That condition must be removed before the property can be transferred, a process that could take several months, according to Chris Havel of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. But the April 8 vote was a huge step toward the transfer becoming reality. “We’re pleased with the outcome,” Keiser said last week, adding that there’s a long ways to go in the process. “The Bureau of Land Management has to sign off on the ultimate use. And we need approval from Coos County when we come up with a specific plan.” Steve Corey, an attorney working on the proposal for Keiser, has had preliminary discussions with BLM, Keiser said, adding “they seem very reasonable.” The Parks Commission approved the concept late last year, but delayed a final vote twice before finally approving it by a 4-2 margin. To approve the transfer, the commission had to find that it provided overwhelming public benefit.

Cover Oregon deadline is extended to April 30 By Geneva Miller Contributing Writer
BANDON — New federal law requires all residents to subscribe to health insurance. The deadline for enrollment in a private health insurance policy for 2014 is April 30. Cover Oregon is the insurance marketplace designed to allow Oregon residents to compare multiple insurance options at one time, either online or through a paper application. Other states elected to use the federal exchange, HealthCare.gov, or created their own state-based exchanges. The exchange is similar to travel sites Orbitz or Expedia, which allow travelers to compare multiple airline and flight itineraries. Using Cover Oregon, insurance shoppers start the application process by supplying basic information about household members and income. Then they review policy options from private insurance companies and, for

Heated exchange follows Bandon town hall meeting By Amy Moss Strong Bandon Western World
BANDON — The first of several town hall meeting hosted by the Coos County Board of Commissioners to solicit public input on the proposed formation the South Coast Community Foundation ended on a somewhat sour note last Wednesday night. One of the meeting’s participants was cited by Bandon police after she allegedly slapped a man during a heated discussion. Ronnie Herne, 69, of Coquille, was charged with one count of harassment outside The Barn in Bandon following an exchange with Rick Skinner of Coos Bay. According to witnesses, the two were discussing the pros and cons of the formation of the SCCF as part of an overall Community Enhancement Plan when the exchange grew heated.
Need to sell something?
Commissioner Melissa Cribbins began the meeting by telling the approximately 50 people in attendance that it would follow a “world cafe” format. Large sheets of paper with questions written at the top were placed at five tables around the room. People counted off by fives and were instructed to go to a table, then move to a different one when Cribbins indicated. The purpose of the format, she said, was to have people write their concerns down and discuss each question among themselves and with input from commissioners and others representing the proposed SCCF. The comments will be compiled at the end of a series of similar meetings held through Sunday throughout the county. The South Coast Community Foundation is a proposed non-
profit that would manage half of the community service fees the Jordan Cove Energy Project would pay if it gets federal and state permits and if it receives a long-term property tax exemption. The Community Enhancement Plan was designed to funnel those fees into three coffers: SCCF, Bayfront Investment Corporation and the North Spit taxing districts. “This is not giving a tax gift back to (Jordan Cove),” county Assessor Steve Jansen has explained. “This is a vehicle to get their tax dollars out of their pocket and give every bit of it to Coos County schools and the other taxing districts.” Essentially, Jordan Cove would pay the same amount whether or not it gets long-term property tax

Bandon dominates district speech and debate tourney The Bandon High School Speech Team dominated the OSAA District No. 6 speech tournament Saturday at Bandon High School, winning 10 of the 22 individual event slots and two of the six debate slots for the OSAA State Speech and Debate Tournament. Those competitors now advance to the state tournament, which will be held April 24-26 at Western Oregon University. To win an event, BHS students competed headto-head with students from North Bend, Marshfield and Coquille. North Bend won eight slots at state, Marshfield two slots and Coquille two slots. Bandon’s success was widespread, according to coach Ellen Howard. Of the 11 individual events, Bandon will compete in eight at state. Bandon captured both of the dual interpretation qualifying slots at district. The team of Jeneveve Winchell and Autumn Moss Strong captured top honors with “The Unknown Part of the Ocean.” The team of Leo McGeehon and Trenten Gagnon took the second slot with “Spaceballs.” Stephanie Gordon qualified in three
events. In dramatic interpretation, she dominated with “Ronald Reagan Hates Your Ugly Mother,” in oratory she qualified with “Confidence,” and also took first in parliamentary debate, along with her partner Alaina Russell. Cheyenne Fogarty qualified in three events, capturing first with a radio commentary on “Bullying,” second in poetry with a selection on “Determination,” and second in parliamentary debate with partner Leo McGeehon. Freshman Katy Taylor won second in radio commentary with her originally written speech on “Underage Drinking,” filling the two qualification slots in this event. Autumn Moss Strong won second in the prose slot with “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.” In expository, Darby Underdown took second place and qualified with her originally written speech on color psychology, complete with posters. Max Underdown won second place in extemporaneous (also called impromtu) speaking. There were many community volunteers who helped judge the

“The speech tournament would not have been possible without the many community volunteers who freely gave their time to make this valuable activity possible,” Howard said. “Thanks fail to express the deep gratitude I feel for each one of you.” “I love coaching the Bandon High School Speech and Debate team, from the first year students to the graduates who are successfully competing at the college level, to adults who will never forget how speech has impacted their lives,” added Howard.

“A society is never in more peril than when the people lose the ability to identify a genuine threat to personal liberty.” — Carl T. Rowan author, journalist, 1993 Thursday, April 17, 2014
Letters BRAVO program rewarding What a pleasant surprise to discover through the Bandon paper that the local Lions Club members are supporters of the BRAVO program at Ocean Crest Grade School. This supplementary reading project pairs students, K-2, with adults who are interested in encouraging reading skills in these early learners. Both groups benefit from this effort. The students acquire a lifelong interest in the printed word and the adults are intrinsically rewarded to see the progress made by these enthusiastic youngsters. Sally Abeyta Bandon
USFWS caused the mess In your article about the “Let’s quit playing the blame game”, I want to address your use of the words “responding hysterically.” Because I wasn’t sure if the word “hysterically” was appropriate, I looked it up in the Webster’s New World Dictionary. Just as I thought, your use of the word paints a picture of less than stable citizens that live in or around Bandon. Aggravated, may have been a better word to use. The USFWS has created this mess, the USFWS should correct it and correct it now. We don’t need to drain our bird baths — that’s not where the mosquitos are coming from. We don’t need to do anything, except protect ourselves, our children, our livestock, our pets. In your article you suggest “don’t expose too much skin.” Are you serious? Are you suggesting that we put bug spray on our babies’ ultra-delicate skin? We don’t need to play the blame game, we know who did it, how it happened and who is suffering for it. There is however, some question to the motive behind this mess. The word “blame” suggests an accusation that is unfounded. Is there any doubt who caused this mess? The only question is will it go away if I’m not hysterical? Wayne Miller Bandon
We’re not hysterical — yet In regard to “Playing the blame game” opinion by Amy Moss Strong, I am giving my opinion, as I and a lot of people have been affected by the “Mosquito Farm” aka: Ni-les’tun marsh on North Bank Road, which was completed in the year 2011 as the first experiment in Oregon, with no back-up plan. Yes, finally, U.S. Fish and Wildlife admitted it was them, but now, with so many on payroll, of course they want to take forever, and will not solve the problem of draining the marsh. OK, we out Prosper area have no ponds, gutters and were dry last year. I didn’t put water in my bird bath for a while, finally did and they swarmed in for a drink. Last summer, end of May 2013, had the Asian biting mosquito until Sept. 18, 2013. The entire summer, all weather, bit through jeans, sweatshirts, socks, which really sucked wearing in 80-degree weather, and that didn’t stop them from biting all day. We sprayed ourselves, used oils, bought plants and put outside doors, and in our yard mixed up every homemade things we heard of. Nothing helped. The face and head net given to me was too hot to wear. We are maybe 1 to 11⁄2 miles as a crow flies from Niles’tun. Never, ever had these big, biting mosquitoes and I’ve been in this house for 20 years and lived all my life in Bandon. The articles that got printed and say USFWS is going to pay this or that, or who will pay for spray or larvicide is crazy. What did the marsh cost? Where did that money come from? For a few places, the money came from, to make this experimental mess without a backup, is lottery revenue, Ducks Unlimited, $1.6 million from damages from the New Carissa oil spill, power line re-routing funds, etc. I read online it was a $6.5 million project. Regardless if that’s exact or not, when someone says, “Live with them” or who will pay to fix it is outrageous. We have regular mosquitoes, of course, and we have bats and dragonflies and this year lots of bees. Most fruits and vegetables in the store have spray, we always wash them. Our closest water is the Coquille River! Hmm. The three marshes have the name of Bandon Marsh, but another name too. The marsh on Riverside Drive last year did not have the Asian mosquito, several people walked out to see. This is my opinion only: The hundreds spent on sprays and the headaches is crazy. We are not responding hysterically ... yet! Linda Summers Bandon

Know your insecticides This is what is said about methoprene in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service document entitled, “Environmental Assessment,” page 58: “The effects of bioconcentration of methoprene is aquatic species are not particularly well documented.” The studies on page 27 regarding invertebrates show reductions in hatching rates and mortality, but do not include any studies on possible harm to offspring at these low levels of methoprene. Most studies only show mortality rates over very short time periods of 24, 48 and 96 hours. Toxicological and Environmental Effects: Page 28 Fish: “Sublethal effects, such as interference with behavior, feeding or reproduction are of course possible and are generally not studied.” Page 31: “Effects of elevated body burdens of methoprene for extended time periods are not well researched ....” Page 57: “No inert ingredients or breakdown products were considered.” These inert ingredients and breakdown products can be very toxic. Page 64: This chart shows effects on wildlife and humans on each insecticide proposed in USFWS’s “Preferred Alternative Plan A”: “Non-toxic to birds and fish, minimal toxicity to bees and other non-target
insects ....” Methoprene: “Slightly to moderately toxic to fish, highly toxic to some species of estuarine invertebrates; slightly toxic to birds; but exposure to toxic amounts highly unlikely due to amount needed for mosquito is <1ppb. However, the methoprene application rates on page 69 are shown at 2-10 ppb initially. What effect of methoprene at a much higher application rate is not being considered? Page 69: “There is concern about potential adverse effects on non-target aquatic insects when this larvicide is used for mosquito control.” (2-10 ppb initially). Vectobac GR is a BTI that is approved for organic farms and is much safer than methoprene or CocoBear Oil insecticides. Vectobac GR pellets are very effective for mosquito control when used at the right time and at the right place. Hopefully this option will be considered at the next Vector Assessment and Control Committee meeting at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 14 at the Coquille Courthouse.

USFWS offers us no guarantee By Rob Taylor In My View
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released the anxiously anticipated Draft Plan and Environmental Assessment for Mosquito Control for The Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge on March 11, which was followed-up a week later with an open house in Bandon on March 18. The 209-page document was a thorough evaluation of the mosquito infestation with the USFWS repeatedly and rightfully admitting to the agency’s guilt as sole perpetrator of this biological disaster. Nevertheless, the service, already having issues with public relations due to their unsophisticated handling of the Bandon Marsh expansion, now has trouble with their credibility starting on page one of the environmental assessment. The report states, “In summer 2012, refuge staff noted an increase in mosquito numbers within the newly restored salt marsh habitat and received several telephone calls and one letter describing increased mosquito numbers from landowners directly across the river from the Ni-les’tun Unit.” It continues on to make the claim that, “In the fall of 2012, refuge staff began coordinating with Coos County Public Health (CCPH) concerning the complaints of increased mosquito numbers.” It is evident that the Service did very little to nothing to coordinate with the CCPH, when the Public Health Director, Nikki Zogg, was not aware of the problem until mid-summer of 2013. The service contends that due to a large bank of viable eggs left on the refuge, mosquito populations are likely to remain high indefinitely unless actively managed. They are developing an Integrated Marsh Management approach to create a long-term solution of modifying the restoration site. Until then, the agency plans to apply larvicide directly to the infested ponds as one part of a multi-tier solution. In conjunction, the service will continue to dig tidal channels to cause more hydrological flow in the marsh, so there will be no more breeding pools remaining. They theorize that the mosquitos will not be able to lay eggs in the increased turbidity, thus eliminating the insect’s ability to mature into adults. However, removing tide gates, digging ditches, and increasing hydrology, is exactly what caused the problem in the first place and the agency’s own vector control experts do not know if these steps will solve the problem. The USFWS makes no guarantee at all that any of these measures will stop the mosquitoes. In contrast, most of the professionals and many environmentalists agree that replacing the original tide gates and draining the swamp
would be the perfect solution, because it would eliminate the mosquitoes without having to use insecticides once or twice a year. The main reason for the expansion of the marsh was to promote healthier water qualities, but the threat of adding harsh chemicals to control the infestation would be counterintuitive to the original intent of the expansion. Diking the marsh would also take away a need to institute a Vector Abatement District, which is a taxing district. Just imagine the size of the infestation if the USFWS had begun the 4,500-acre expansion, pulled more tidal gates, and dug more channels further up the Coquille Valley. James Lunders is the manager and biologist of the Jackson County Vector Control District and the North Pacific director of the American Mosquito Control Association. During the first week of February, he gave a presentation at the AMCA Annual Conference in Seattle which he cleverly titled, “USFWS Bandon Marsh Wetland Restoration Project — failure to plan is planning to fail!” Lunders’ presentation is an explanation of how the Service failed to learn the history of the area before beginning the largest wetland restoration project in the state. He explains how the agency failed to learn from their own mistakes with wetland restoration projects on the East Coast. Many in our community believe the entire infestation was a planned event as a way to coerce property owners into becoming “willing sellers,” thus eliminating the main obstacle to the marsh expansion. It was very disappointing that Coos County Commissioner John Sweet procrastinated on convening a citizen committee to analyze the situation and review the actions of the USFWS. He is the commissioner in charge of this issue. Sweet’s delayed response and indecisiveness may cause voters to lose confidence in his ability to lead, which may hurt his bid for re-election. The USFWS released the environmental assessment the same week applicants for the county’s Mosquito Committee received the notification letter. The lapse in time will make it difficult for this group to have any influence in the final solution to the mosquito problem. More disturbingly, Commissioner Sweet ignored the advice of the former public health director and did not choose the director’s recommendations for the committee, instead opting for a more politically correct panel as a way to placate the service.

Deadline those who qualify, public Medicaid. Oregon Health Plan is Oregon’s Medicaid — publicly subsidized health insurance. OHP eligibility is based on household income, and many now qualify for OHP who were not eligible before. There is no deadline for Medicaid enrollment. The private insurance deadline was extended in some states, including Oregon, where technical problems associated with the online exchange slowed enrollment. The Cover Oregon board of directors will decide in the coming weeks if the state’s exchange should be revamped for 2015 enrollment — or scrapped, in favor of the federal exchange.
Get free enrollment assistance or shop independently Residents are not required to apply for insurance using the Cover Oregon exchange. Through April, those who do not qualify for OHP or wish to shop private insurance companies can apply on their own or contact an insurance agent for assistance. For most individuals, private insurance enrollment will not open again until November. OHP enrollment is open year-round and can be expedited, according to Cathy Mann, admitting manager at Southern

Coos Hospital. Southern Coos enrolled 17 residents in OHP within the last month. The hospital is participating in a Cover Oregon program that allows hospitals to determine eligibility with a one-page application. Those who qualify for presumptive eligibility receive immediate access to OHP coverage. “It’s a very fast track,” said Mann. The program is good for the community because it ensures patients can access care, while the hospital and other health providers receive payment for services. Uninsured patients who come to Southern Coos are offered enrollment assistance when they are admitted.
Residents who think they may be eligible for OHP are welcome to visit Southern Coos admitting. The screening process takes only a few minutes. Applicants are asked to provide basic household information, including income. Coverage under presumptive eligibility is active up to 45 days, during which time members are required to complete the enrollment process. Can current OHP members expect any changes? Those who previously subscribed to OHP will note changes, designed to make OHP a comprehensive and competitive insurance option that emphasizes preventative care. As of January 2014, Oregon Health Plans were consolidated to one package, OHP Plus. Benefits include access to preventive care, primary care practitioners, check-ups and mental health treatment and some dental and vision benefits. In addition, members are offered products and services to manage chronic conditions. Home health services and some allied health treatments, such as acupuncture, are included by referral. Members do not pay monthly premiums. They may be asked to provide co-payment, from $1 to $3, per office visit or prescription.
SCCF exemption, Jansen said. The difference is whether it pays community service fees through the C o m m u n i t y Enhancement Plan or property tax dollars if the plan falls through. If the plan is put in place, SCCF would invest half of its allotment in an endowment fund, which would continue to fund local school districts in perpetuity. Only a handful who attended Bandon’s town hall meeting were from Bandon. Several present were employees of Knife River and others were members of Boost Southwest Oregon, a group that supports the proposal. A majority of audience members said they were in favor of the plan, with a few speaking against. “I came tonight because I thought they’d have an open debate,” said Phil Thompson of Coos Bay. “This is a farce, you have more boosters here (than others), it was a setup.” Thompson said he is not against schools
In exchange for the 280 acres, a gorsechoked inland portion of the 878-acre property south of town, Bandon Biota would give the Parks Department 111 acres of oceanfront property adjacent to Bandon State National Area and 97 acres of wetlands property on the Coquille spit adjacent to Bullards Beach State Park. Bandon Biota also would provide $300,000 in cash to control gorse on state park property, $450,000 to help match a federal grant to acquire 11 acres at Whale Cove in Lincoln County and $2.5 million to purchase an as-yet unidentified new state park property. Keiser also would grant an easement through the Sheep Ranch property just north of Bandon Dunes for the state to relocate and align the Oregon Coast Trail in accordance with the Parks Department’s trail standards. Commissioners Brad Chalfant of Bend and Robin Risley of Cannon Beach voted against the transfer, citing a desire to name a specific property as the target for the $2.5 million fund. “In the end, the timing makes it too complicated to try and name a new incoming property today,” commission Chairman Jay Graves of Portland said. “Properties that are important enough to pursue right now can’t

But several Boost Southwest Oregon members said they see it as a positive way to help Coos County. “This isn’t about Jordan Cove,” said Tracie Skinner of Coos Bay. “It’s about a nonprofit fund that can better our community in ways we can’t imagine and if we don’t act on it, we lose.” Tim Huntley of Coos Bay said his wife is a teacher at Madison school and often has to purchase supplies and works in a trailer due to the lack of classroom space.
Biz Fair al materials as well as a short presentation of what their business has to offer. The day also will feature prize drawings and a no-host wine and beer bar from 4 to 7 p.m. “This event was very popular and well attended last year,” Miller said. “This year we have extended the hours to make it even more accessible to business owners and the public.” The event represents an opportunity for local shoppers to get to know their retailers better and hear about new product offers, said Coastal Mist co-owner Kevin Shaw, chairman of the Bandon Business Fair. “This is the best opportunity to get to meet and learn about 40 of your neighborhood businesses in one room,” Shaw said.
“If this foundation is not created, nobody is getting any of the money and we’ve lost the opportunity of a lifetime,” Huntley said. Bill Ohlsen, manager of Bandon Concrete and Development said he thinks the proposal is a win-win. “If we want to sit and argue, they won’t give us anything,” he said. Bruce Capps said he came for more information, but is in favor of the proposal. “I’d really like to see something happen in the county and LNG would help with an inflow of money and people,” Capps said. “We’ve lost timber and we need industry.” Bandon resident Myra Lawson, however, said her concern is more about the construction of an LNG plant in Coos County in the first place, and further, that Jordan Cove would be extended the offer of a tax-free Enterprise Zone. “(Jordan Cove) doesn’t need an incentive to come here, where else would
they go?” Lawson asked. “And our elected bodies need to choose where the tax money will go. I think we should elect SCCF members to represent us. They should be answerable to the people. It’s supposed to be a democracy, not a corporaocracy.” Meetings following a similar format were held over the weekend in Coos Bay, Lakeside, Myrtle Point and Coquille (visit www.theworldlink.com for updates on this issue). Cribbins said the commissioners were holding the town hall meetings in quick succession to move the process ahead. The formation of the SCCF was expected to be voted on at the commissioner’s regular meeting Tuesday in Coquille.

wait for the exchange to reach fruition.” An earlier version of the proposal had the $2.5 million from Bandon Biota going for the Parks Department to buy a portion of a ranch in eastern Oregon, but that purchase fell through this year. The transfer could provide a big boost for the state parks, Graves said. “We’re bringing more oceanfront property into the system, and if the federal interests are satisfied successfully, we’ll also secure funding to acquire another significant property in the future,” he said. “Taken as a whole, the commission decided the package represents an overwhelming public benefit to the state park system.” Keiser’s goal for the property is for up to a 36hole golf complex
designed by Gil Hanse, the architect for the Olympic golf course in Brazil. Local residents would pay a low rate, while golfers from outside the area would pay the same rate as guests at Bandon Dunes. Keiser envisions Bandon Links to also be a training ground for new caddies who don’t have the opportunity for training at the resort. Golfers who serve as mentors for new caddies would pay an even cheaper rate to play at Bandon Links. He also said the nongolfing public would benefit because the project would open a new access to the New River, which is located between the proposed golf complex and the beach. Actual work on the project could be up to 18 months away, even with quick approval by BLM.

Martino keys win in eight innings
Smith, Santoro shine at meets
Bandon Western World
Bandon Western World
Several individual wins highlighted the efforts of Bandon’s track team in a pair of seven-school meets in the past week. The Tigers hosted their annual Small Schools Invitational on Friday, with the girls placing third and the boys fifth. Individual efforts highlighted the team’s performance. Hannah Smith had a lifetime best, soaring 34 feet to win the triple jump in windy conditions, and also won the 100 for the Tigers. Aida Santoro won both the 1,500 and 3,000 for Bandon, while Sarah Cutler took the 800 and was second in the 400. Rowan Reimer was second in both the long jump and high jump. For the boys, Mitchell Brown won the 100 meters. Gabriel Castelli took the 800 meters and Zane Olive was second in the 1,500. At Pacific this week, the Bandon boys were second and the girls were third. The Pirates won both team titles. Brown continued a strong season by winning the 100, with Alex Winston second. Brown also finished second in the high jump. Jacob Taylor won the long jump, with Winston third. Olive got the other win for the Tigers, taking the 1,500. He also was third in the 3,000. Castelli placed second

Sprinting to the line Bandon’s Mitchell Brown sprints to the finish followed by Powers’ Ronnie Zemke in the 100-meter dash at the recent Coquille Twilight meet. in the 800. Meanwhile, Santoro had another strong meet, again winning both the 1,500 and 3,000. She had a lifetime best of 11:22.50 in the latter event. Smith took the 100. Cutler was second in the 800 and third in the 1,500. Reimer was second in the long jump and fourth in the high jump. The Tigers are looking to improve in the weeks before their district meet, when the top two finishers in each event will advance to the Class 3A state meet at Eugene. Through Tuesday’s meet at Pacific, a few Tigers are ranked near the
top of their events for the district, which includes Glide and Coquille from the Sunset Conference, as well as a handful of teams from the Rogue Valley and Lakeview. Santoro currently has the best times in both the 1,500 and 3,000. Smith, meanwhile, is the district leader in the triple jump and ranks second in the 100. For the boys, Taylor ranks second in the javelin and is tied with teammate Logan Shea for the third-best mark in the long jump. Taylor and Shea also combine with Shannon Forty and Ramon Munoz to rank second in the
4x100-meter relay. This week, the Tigers compete in the first of two big meets at Marshfield High School, when they join 25 other schools in the Prefontaine Rotary Invitational. The meet will give Bandon’s runners a chance to compete against some of the better athletes from several different classifications. The other meet at Marshfield is the annual Coos County Meet, which this year has been moved nearly to the end of the season. The meet, always held on a Friday evening, is scheduled for May 9, the week before the district meet.
Tigers growing as a softball unit Bandon Western World
Bandon’s softball team has spent the season trying to bounce back from a preseason cut short by the weather. “The rain again cut short preseason games normally used to make corrections in position playing and give players some experience prior to league play,” said Bandon coach Rick Hinojosa. Since the team’s season-opening win over Reedsport, the Tigers
have lost five straight, including a 21-3 setback to Gold Beach on Tuesday. Senior Cheyenne Young took to the pitcher’s circle for the first time since eighth grade and, until the loss to Gold Beach, had been keeping the Tigers in games. “She continues to get better and better with each game,” Hinojosa said. Meanwhile, Hinojosa has been trying to find the right mix of players in the infield and outfield. The Tigers have just
three seniors this year — Young, Carissa Guarino and Leatrice Helms. “I expect them to be role models for the younger players,” Hinojosa said. One big positive is that the Tigers have enough players for a JV team as well. “Freshman Cheyenne Ornelas has worked hard learning to pitch,” Hinojosa said. “She threw well in a JV game against Reedsport despite having a stomach full of jitters.”
In the game against Gold Beach, Savannah Williams scored Bandon’s first run, leading off an inning with a walk and then moving around the bases aided by a single from Ally Richert and scoring on a grounder by Savannah Guarino. Williams drove in the other two runs with a single. Bandon hosts Illinois Valley for a doubleheader on Saturday, starting at noon. The Tigers play Gold Beach on the road Tuesday.
Bandon’s baseball team split a pair of games at Oakland on Saturday and then lost a heartbreaker to Gold Beach on Tuesday as the Tigers continue to prep for their biggest games. Against Gold Beach, Bandon had a three-run lead until the Panthers scored four runs in the sixth inning. Despite the loss, Bandon head coach Jay Ferrell finally got to play the nine starters he envisioned at the beginning of the year and wasn’t disappointed in the results. “Overall, I knows it’s a loss, but it was the best game we’ve been a part of all year,” Ferrell said. “We really came to play today. By far the best game we played all year.” Among the bright spots for the Tigers, Quinn Hamblin went 2for-4 with two RBIs and starting pitcher Coleton Jackson pitched several solid innings. Bandon’s one win during the week was keyed by
an outstanding effort from Robert Martino, who pitched all eight innings in a 5-4 win over Oakland in Saturday’s opener. Martino had eight strikeouts and just three walks. He finished the long game with two strikeouts among the final three batters. “He’s just been progressively getting better all year as far as velocity and control,” Ferrell said. “In the past, he’s always been a little inconsistent.” Shawn Peters drove in the winning run with a two-out double in the top of the eighth inning, bringing home Jackson, who had singled and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Wil Lozano. Oakland rallied to win the second game with two runs in the bottom of the seventh. Quentin Coomer had three hits, including a pair of doubles, and Jon Wilhite hit a home run. Bandon hosts Illinois Valley for a doubleheader Saturday.
Huttons shine at run Members of the Hutton family set one course record and three other age-group records in the recent Salmon Creek Run at Powers. Sailor Hutton set a women’s course record, finishing the 10-kilometer race in 41 minutes and 18 seconds. Brent Hutton, Sailor’s father, was the men’s winner, setting an agegroup record in the 20-29 division with his time of 35:53. Hunter Hutton,
Sailor’s twin brother, set a men’s age-group record in the 14-19 division with his time of 41:12. Tricia Hutton, the twins’ mom, won the 5kilometer race for women with a time of 26:23, setting the 40-49 age group record for women. Carter Brown of Langlois was the overall winner of the 5K in 22:36. Among other Bandon runners, Tom Bedell was seventh overall in the 10K in 47:45 and Tom Brown was ninth in 49:30.

Trout contest for 2014 begins; bass fishing heats up This week Tenmile Lakes is scheduled to receive 6,000 legal-size rainbow trout. Ringo’s Lakeside Marina is proud to continue its popular tagged trout contest for 2014. This year 100 trout will be tagged and released on Friday, April 18. Fifty fish will be released on both North and South Tenmile Lake. Tags can be redeemed at Ringo’s Lakeside Marina and are worth between $5 and $100 good toward all merchandise and services. All trout tags are worth money regardless of the year that they were planted. John from the Marina told us that the largemouth bass fishing on Tenmile was redhot last weekend. Anglers fishing in a bass tournament reported catching up to 40 bass each. One angler who rented a boat from the marina landed a 5 1/2 pound largemouth. Most of the bass have been in the two-pound range and are being caught from the shoreline out to 15 feet. Popular lures on Tenmile have been Brush Hogs, large swimbaits or spinner baits. For more info on the contest or fishing Tenmile Lakes you can call John or

Area shellfish: Crabbing continues to be very slow in the bay at Bandon. Crabbers working hard up in Coos Bay are picking up a few legal-size Dungeness crab. This week’s minus tide series should bring out plenty of bay clammers in Charleston and along Cape Arago Highway. Bay and beach clamming is open to the entire Oregon Coast. On April 3, mussel harvesting was reopened from Cape Arago to the California border. A good number to have is the Oregon Dept. of Agriculture’s shellfish Hotline which provides the most current info on shellfish safety closures, 1-800-448-2474.
