Roller Derby Returns to Tillamook July 27th

Posted by on Jul 23, 2019 in Tillamook County Pioneer | Comments Off on Roller Derby Returns to Tillamook July 27th

Adventist Health

This Saturday July 27th, the Tillamook Coast Derby Dames will host their second home bout facing off against Southern Oregon Roller Derby at the POSH Warehouse, located at the Port of Tillamook Bay. Tickets are $10 per person, and kids 10 and under get in free. Only a limited number of tickets are available.
The Tillamook Coast Derby Dames have been participating in flat track roller derby since January of 2017.

Roller derby is a five-on-five sport where jammers (identified by the star on their helmets) score points by passing opposing players, called blockers. Each blocker on the track works to help their jammer get through the “pack” while simultaneously trying to stop the opposing jammer from successfully getting through. It is a full-contact sport, with skaters dressed to the nines in safety gear to deliver hard hits and battle it out for the most points.


While the game still has some similarities to the roller derby of the 1970s (for instances, skaters all still use witty alter egos and occasionally sport fishnet tights), the game has evolved significantly to a bonafide sport with more than 300 leagues all over the world that’s still just as entertaining to watch despite the lack of theatrics and choreographed bloody brawls.
For those who have never seen a roller derby bout before, don’t worry, the Dames will explain the game before the bout start.
Doors open at 5 p.m. and the game starts at 6 p.m. sharp. There will be Pelican beer for sale for those 21 and over, and food onsite for purchase. The POSH Warehouse is located at 644 Hangar Road.
You can purchase tickets for $10 a piece online at Brown Paper Tickets or visit their website, tillamookcoastderbydames.com to learn more.

Oceanside Water Contamination Update: Oceanside Water has identified specific area effected, maps at Post Office and Water Distribution Site

Posted by on Jul 22, 2019 in Tillamook County Pioneer | Comments Off on Oceanside Water Contamination Update: Oceanside Water has identified specific area effected, maps at Post Office and Water Distribution Site

The Oceanside Water District has be able to identify the specific distribution areas impacted or serviced by the water tank of concern. David has posted maps at the Oceanside Post Office and at the Water Distribution Station set up at the local Oceanside Fire Station. Speaking of the Water Distribution Station, I was told that someone from that area has donated two pallets of water so there should be enough for the effected homes until this is over.

The last samples go out today July 22nd for testing and a rush was put on all the testing so it is possible that the final results could be back tomorrow. This past Friday the National Guard Civil Support Team went down and did preliminary testing the water and found nothing and with the final tests today, tomorrow (July 23rd) we may get the green light for a return to service. David of Oceanside Water says he has already cleaned the tanks, flushed the distribution lines and changed all the filters so once he gets that green light, he can immediately turn the water back on to the effected homes for immediate use.

DRINKING WATER WARNING – Oceanside Water District Has A Potential Contamination Event (from July 18, 2019)
On July 18, 2019, The Tillamook Police department notified the Oceanside Water district that an individual whose vehicle was found near our main reservoirs indicated that an attempt was made to contaminate our water system. Although there is no evidence to suggest this individual has succeeded or even gained access to our reservoirs, as our customers, you have a right to know that we are working with local law enforcement and as a precaution have discontinued using those reservoirs until they can be drained, re-filled, and the entire distribution system flushed. We are urging customers not to drink the water until further notified
What should I do?
You should avoid drinking water until further notified. We anticipate resolving the situation within the next few days.
DO NOT BOIL THE WATER. Boiling does not reduce the amount of some contaminants and may even concentrate them. Over-the-counter filters may also not be effective. If you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor.
If you have a severely compromised immune system, have an infant or children, are pregnant, or elderly, you may be at increased risk and should seek advice from your health care provider about drinking this water.
We at the Oceanside water district take threats like this very seriously and therefore have taken the reservoirs in question out of service and will be draining and flushing them prior to returning them to service. We will be flushing the distribution system to ensure all possibly contaminated water is removed. We are also sending out samples collected to try to determine what contaminate if any was introduced into our system. We anticipate resolving the problem by July 23nd 2019.
For more information contact David Nordman at 503-842-6462.
* Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example people in apartments, trailers, mobile homes, or businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail. *
This notice is being sent to you by Oceanside Water District. Water System ID # 41-00585.
Date distributed: July 18, 2019.

“Art Makes the World Go Round” Raffle at Hoffman Center – tickets available through Aug. 17

Posted by on Jul 22, 2019 in Tillamook County Pioneer | Comments Off on “Art Makes the World Go Round” Raffle at Hoffman Center – tickets available through Aug. 17

Adventist Health

Hoffman Center invites you to help them “Make the world go round at the Hoffman Center for the Arts” by purchasing a $10 raffle ticket for art by Karl Werner Kaiser. They chose Karl’s encaustic, Spin 103, as our 2019 garden party fundraiser theme. Measuring 16 x 16, Spin 103 is ready to hang, and would be priced in a gallery for $380. The art is on display in the Hoffman Center for the Arts gallery from June 16 through August 17.

“SPIN” by Karl Werner Kiser, 16″ x 16″

Supporting the Hoffman Center for the Arts is about supporting and elevating arts and culture in a rural community. They offer eight year-round programs: writing, ceramics, visual arts, film, music, horticulture, the art of aging & dying, and the gallery in Manzanita, Oregon.

In 2018, Hoffman Center provided 480 opportunities for creativity- about 9 per week, drawing in roughly 850 participants. From learning to draw, hand-build with clay, write pithy dialogue, or critique a film, our volunteer-led programs provide opportunities for people to engage in pursuing an interest in the arts and to advance their skills, all the while helping create a strong and connected community. They invite you to be part of building the kind of community you want to live in or visit! For more about hoffmanarts.org.
The drawing for the raffle will be on the evening of Hoffman’s Garden Party Fundraiser on August 17, 2019. You need not be present to win. The minimum chance of winning is one in 250.

About Karl Werner Kaiser:
Encaustic is his primary medium because of the unique depth and texture it brings to his subjects. Karl manipulates the wax through scraping, using impressions and smoothing techniques to evoke the complicated but perfect natural world around him that he finds through his camera lens. His signature technique is carving into deep multi-colored layers bringing a richness and complexity to the work. It has been described as sculptural and Karl continues to push the boundaries in that direction. He is drawn to linear abstract themes and carving back through layers of color feeds that inspiration. During his early career, he created series of abstract leaves, petals, and trees using this technique. As Karl’s work shows, he is drawn to color (blues, oranges, yellows, reds). He uses pigments to make his own paints encompassing the entire color spectrum.
Karl is currently represented by Portland Rental Sales Gallery in Portland, Oregon and RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. His work is also in private collections throughout the United States and in Mexico, Canada and Germany. You can find more of Karl’s work here.

The Port of Garibaldi was identified as a location that would make an impact in keeping our oceans cleaner and would help protect marine life. Since installation of the bin in 2009 at the Port, over 240,000 pounds of obsolete equipment has been collected and processed, enabled by the vital four-way partnership. The 10-year milestone will be recognized July 30th at 10 am at the Event Tent site here in Garibaldi, followed by a tour of the Port, and on July 31 at the Covanta Marion Energy-from-Waste facility in Brooks, OR.

The Fishing for Energy partnership, between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, and Covanta Corporation has provided removal services at 55 ports in 12 states, collecting nearly 4 million pounds of fishing gear. Gear collected at the Port of Garibaldi is sorted and the non-recyclable material is converted into energy at Covanta Energy locations, such as the Marion Energy from Waste Facility. In total, Fishing for Energy has awarded $3.77 million in grants to over 40 projects in 19 U.S. states and Puerto Rico, generating $1,532,000 in grantee match.
Lost or derelict fishing gear has been identified as one of the major types of debris impacting the marine environment. Every year, marine species become trapped or entangled in lost, abandoned or discarded fishing gear.
The Port welcomes anyone interested to join us for a port tour July 30th at 10 am along with company reps of Covanta, NOAA and NFWF to see the collection bin that helps provide removal services for our commercial and recreational anglers so that they can more easily dispose of gear.
