Posted by on Dec 6, 2019 in Tillamook County Pioneer | Comments Off on Holiday Happenings This Weekend: Bazaars, Music, Santa Sightings, and More Saturday Dec. 7th

From Neskowin to Manzanita, Saturday December 7th is full of activities – there are bazaars, art sales, plays, music, ballets, Santa appearances and any type of holiday festivities to get you into the spirit. We’ve featured several the last day or so, but here’s another run down and reminders about some of the fun – this is not a COMPLETE list – check the Tillamook Living/Tillamook County Pioneer Event calendar for more. Start your shopping off at bazaars at Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church, the Tillamook Nazarene Church and the Tillamook United Methodist Church, or head down to South County for the “tour” – with bazaars at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Kiawanda Community Center, and Nestucca Valley Elementary Schools HollyDaze (held at former Beaver Middle School.)

From breakfast through dinner, and in-between, the City of Tillamook has it covered on Saturday – from Breakfast with Santa at the Tillamook Creamery from 8:30 am to 10 am, then out to the Tillamook Air Museum for special tours – free admission with canned food donations, Santa and the Grinch on hand. Then over to the Main Library for Holiday Crafts followed by Benny and the Bay City Rockers for a Christmas Sing-a-Long. Wrap up the day at 2nd Street Plaza with activities beginning at 3:30 pm, photos with Santa, chili, snacks and beverages at the Oregon Mess Hall, the tree lighting at 5:30 pm, followed by the Holiday Light parade.

Commercial Dungeness crab season delay continues until at least Dec. 31

Posted by on Dec 6, 2019 in Tillamook County Pioneer | Comments Off on Commercial Dungeness crab season delay continues until at least Dec. 31

NEWPORT, Ore. – Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife announced today, December 6, 2019 that the opening of the commercial Dungeness crab season will be delayed until at least Dec. 31 along the entire Oregon coast as testing shows crabs are still too low in meat yield in half of the areas along the coast.

The ocean commercial Dungeness crab season in Oregon is targeted to open Dec. 1, but can be delayed to ensure a high-quality product to consumers and to avoid wastage of the resource. Crab quality testing in late November and early December showed that many areas within the Tri-State region still did not meet the criteria for an opening. The delayed opening will allow for crabs to fill with more meat.
Testing will continue to determine if the season should open Dec. 31, be further delayed, or be split into separate areas with different opening dates. In conjunction with the delayed ocean commercial season, commercial harvest of Dungeness crab in Oregon bays is now closed for the remainder of the year.
Recreational crab harvesting is currently open coastwide in the ocean, bays and estuaries, and on beaches, docks, piers, and jetties. Recreational crabbers should always call the Shellfish Hotline (800-448-2474) or check ODA’s Recreational Shellfish webpage for closures before crabbing.
Commercial Dungeness crab is Oregon’s most valuable fishery. Last year’s delayed season opening still brought in the second highest ex-vessel value ever ($66.7 million) with 18.7 million pounds landed, just above the 10-year average.

From an Outgoing Commissioner: Thank You Citizens! Baertlein Announces This is His Last Term

Posted by on Dec 6, 2019 in Tillamook County Pioneer | Comments Off on From an Outgoing Commissioner: Thank You Citizens! Baertlein Announces This is His Last Term

By Tillamook County Commissioner Bill Baertlein
After much thought and soul searching, I have decided not to run again for Tillamook County Commissioner. I will be 70 years old in January of 2021 and want to spend some more time traveling, fishing and gardening. My daughter has a baby on the way and I am looking forward to becoming a grandpa!
I want to thank my spouse for encouraging me to be a Commissioner and putting up with me being consumed by the position for two terms. It has been a huge burden on her workload in running what has now become her CPA Firm. I also want to thank those who supported me at the ballot box and shared my vision of a healthier and thriving community for all citizens.

As one born and raised in a 1950’s working-family, I have brought the passion and commitment for our working-class families to my position as a commissioner daily. This passion for helping the working-class is what I will most miss.
Being a County Commissioner has been and continues to be a joy for me. I look forward to getting to the office every day and I still have the passion for making Tillamook a better place for those that call it home. I know I have a reputation for stirring the pot and throwing rocks in the pond and that will continue up to my last day in office. You can’t make positive change without stirring things up and waking the community to the needs of so many of our neighbors.
Finally, just because I will be retiring as a Commissioner after this term doesn’t mean that I will be going quietly into the night. I will still have a few rocks for the pond and a stirring stick, a much smaller stirring stick for sure, but still enough to keep things interesting!

Christmas Wishes: Local Organizations Brighten Families Holidays – Local Toy Drives, Giving Trees & More

Posted by on Dec 6, 2019 in Tillamook County Pioneer | Comments Off on Christmas Wishes: Local Organizations Brighten Families Holidays – Local Toy Drives, Giving Trees & More

By Laura Swanson
The holidays can be an especially difficult time for struggling families, especially in our rural communities. There are many groups and organizations that step in to “play Santa” for these families and the children.
In North Tillamook County, CHILD (Christ’s Hands In Loving Devotion) based at the Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church, the program distributes tags to various businesses that have the children’s wishes on them – Look for tags at the Big Wave Café in Manzanita, Columbia Bank in Manzanita, the Bunkhouse and Bayway in Nehalem, the Rinehart Clinic in Wheeler, Grumpy’s Café and the Crafters Mall in Rockaway Beach and the Parkside Restaurant in Garibaldi. They are trying to collect everything by December 12th so that they can get the gifts to the families. They can always use “stocking stuffers”, things that would be appropriate for different ages of children since they range from 7 months to teens. For information email to nbumcchild@gmail.com.

In Tillamook, the Tillamook Fire station at 2310 4th Street is a drop off location for new, unwrapped toys.
Giving trees are at four locations in south county through a program coordinated by the Nestucca Valley Lions Club, at the Pacific City Branch of Oregon Coast Bank, at the Kiawanda Community Center, Center Market in Cloverdale and the Church of the Nazarene in Hemlock. Each tree has tags with suggested gifts for children, veterans, seniors and the disabled. The gifts need to be to the Lions or the location by December 12th. In addition to gifts, the Lions Club puts together Christmas food baskets as well, anticipating serving over 130 households this year. If you would like to donate a case or more of non-perishable food, leave a voicemail for Teresa Smith at 541-227-9411. Residents who would like to volunteer or who know a family they’d like to see served by the program can also contact Smith. The Lion’s Club will hold community volunteer work days December 14 and December 16-20. Delivery day for the gifts of food, sundries and presents will be on December 21st.
If you know of a family in need anywhere in Tillamook County, please reach out to local resources, such as CARE at 2310 Frist St., Tillamook or 503-842-5261, careinc.org.
