STEP breeds knowledge
BY SARAH HAASE
The Umpqua Post
REEDSPORT — The circle of
life is evident through the volunteer work done by members
of the local Salmon Trout
Enhancement Program.
For the last few weeks, STEP
members have worked with
employees from the Oregon
Department of Fish and
Wildlife, spawning hundreds of
thousands of salmon eggs. On
Nov. 7, students from the
Reedsport Community Charter
School were on hand to help
catch, cut and count during the
multi-step process.
The salmon used for breeding have already traveled up
Winchester Creek, the end of
the road for the fish, said Laura
Jackson, a fish biologist with
ODFW. Wild and hatchery male
and female salmon are collected
from a pen. They are soaked in a
basin with a sedative, then harvested for their eggs or sperm.
“Winchester Creek is really a
dead end of sorts,” Jackson said.
“If they’ve made it this far,
they’ve passed all the anglers
and there really isn’t a good
breeding ground for the fish up
this far. It gives us a good place
to get our breeding fish.”
Helena Verduyn, a biologist
with ODFW said getting a vari-

ety of wild and hatchery fish
enhance the breeding chances.
“It enables us to get a good
mix of genetics, so that the new
salmon that are hatched have a
better chance of survival,”
Verduyn said.
The group’s target number is
200,000 fertilized eggs. To get
this amount, the eggs of close to
a dozen female fish must be
used. On Nov. 7, the eggs of five
females were harvested. Eight
males were used for fertilization.
“We want to produce
100,000 that we release in
Winchester Bay and then send
another 80,000 or so to the
Rock Creek Hatchery because
they have a habitat where
they’re able to hold the fish over
the summer,” Jackson said.
Chris Teeter, one of the
RCCS marine biology students
helping with the process, was in
charge of slicing the females.
With a blade, he cut the underbelly of the female salmon,
releasing a cascade of orangey
colored eggs.
“They cut real easy, like butter,” he said.
After the waterfall of eggs,
Jackson searched the fish for
any leftover eggs, being careful

REEDSPORT — Spaghetti was a clear sign of success during the annual fundraiser for Christmas in July.
More than 100 people came through the doors of the
Eagles Club on Thursday night to enjoy some quality food,
good friends and some fun entertainment. The event is the
nonprofit organization’s biggest fundraiser, and this year, the
spaghetti feed netted more than $2,000.
“It looks like people are having a lot of fun and that’s
important,” said Sharon Thompson co-chair of Christmas in
July. “We’ve had a very steady turnout. People have been
coming through the doors and buying raffle tickets and it
looks like they’ve been spending lots of money.”
Diners enjoyed a full plate of spaghetti and meat sauce,
salad and garlic bread. More than 40 pounds of pasta was prepared and Eagles member Chuck Stubblefield erred on the
side of caution when he sent someone out on a pasta run.

HAUSER — Oregon State
Police confirmed
Wednesday that two people
and a dog were killed when
their pickup caught fire after
colliding with a tree on U.S.
Highway 101 late Tuesday
night.
John W. Suiter, 32, and
Andrea Belcher, 23, both of
Lakeside, were pronounced
dead at the scene.
The 1993 Ford Ranger
truck, driven by Suiter, was
heading northbound near
milepost 227.5 at 11:20 p.m.
when it crossed over the
center line and went off the
road into a ditch before
striking a tree and catching
fire.
Sgt. Josh Young, with
OSP, said he couldn’t identify any tire tracks on the
road, indicating the driver
did not brake before heading
off the road.
OSP Sgt. Eric Judah said
the cause of the crash is still
unknown. Investigators will
release more information
once they conclude their
investigation.
Firefighters from Hauser
and Lakeside sprayed water
onto the truck hours after
the crash, and police
searched for evidence
around the crash scene.

Lakeside firefighters wait with a hose after extinguishing a
vehicle fire on U.S. Highway 101 near Hauser on Nov. 6. The fire
resulted after a pickup crashed. Two people and one dog were

OPINION
A community treasure
The
Reedsport
Christmas in July is one
of the greatest community service projects I've
seen in a long time.
This summer, I got to
report on and participate
in the event. The good
things that were accomplished in a day, were
truly incredible. Endless
amounts of gardening,
repaired roofs, chopped
wood piles, wheel chair
ramps...
So many volunteers
were working together to
help those who could use
a hand, physically or
monetarily.
The summer event

throughout the year and
from an editor's point of
view, a spaghetti dinner
fundraiser
is
like
Christmas. It's an event
that provides a heart
warming story and some
potentially entertaining
photos.
I have to admit, I went
with the intention of getting just that, saying

that.

I interviewed the cooks,
some volunteers and some

and then thought I was
wrapping up the evening
by talking with Sharon
Thompson, co-chairwoman of Christmas in
July along with Pastor
Allen Chaney.
She asked me if I was
staying for the Chinese
auction. I had never
heard of a Chinese auction and after she
explained it to me briefly

decided I had to check it
out.
To kill some time, I
caved in and bought a
dinner ticket along with
some raffle tickets
Honestly, I'm not the
biggest spaghetti fan, but
the meal prepared (and
donated) by the Eagles
was pretty darn fantastic. I ate nearly my whole
plate of pasta.
Soon, Carey Jones,
auctioneer aficionado,
was getting ready to start
the Chinese auction.
He asked for some
volunteers to be runners.
Since I was in gym attire,
I figured, why not?
Soon I was getting my
workout. I was dashing
around the lodge snatching dollar bills from the
hands of donors, making
every attempt to be the
runner who grabbed the
last bill.
I had a few people who
won some loot.
Carey
was
kind
enough to give us time to
catch our breath—in
between Chinese auction
items, he chose some raffle ticket winners.
One of my tickets was
chosen. I was the winner
of a cute little basket
filled with a washcloth
and bar of Pacific peppermint soap made by
Tsunami
Soap
the
Company.
Was it luck or a secret
message? I'm still not too
sure.
In the end, the
spaghetti dinner raised
more than $2,000 for
Christmas in July.
Equally important,
though, is that everyone
truly enjoyed themselves
during the event. I know I
sure did.

Measure 10-119, misunderstanding?
Proponents of Measure 10-119 had one simple goal. It
was to include the people in the decision of spending their
resources. Nothing in the simple measure prevented elected
officials from continuing payment of contracted obligations
to the state of Oregon.
For some reason Mayor Tymchuk refused to involve you
in the decision of funding the replacement of the Reedsport
sewage treatment facilities. Was this because you lacked
understanding of what needed to happen? Some might conclude that, but it was because he simply did not trust the
people for this decision.
This is further demonstrated in the fact that there was
no attempt to seek the amending or modification of
Measure 10-119 by going to the people. Instead elected offi-
cials used public funds and an outside legal team to fight the
people.
It is baffling that the mayor could lead this effort and
still seek your vote in his re-election. More baffling is the
fact that voters provided him a very ample vote. Comparing
this vote with the number that voted for the measure, one
can conclude that many wearied from support of the measure and did not even vote.
Have they abandoned citizenship in favor of becoming
subjects?
Measure 10-119 made Reedsport the envy of many.
Universally it is agreed that the people should have a say
over obligating their resources. Will Reedsport retain it?
Since it only may be removed by a vote of the people, our
trust must be in the people to protect the Charter addition
the voters have established with almost a super majority for
the measure.

Free Thanksgiving dinner at senior center
Christmas
REEDSPORT — There will be a free Thanksgiving dinner
offered at the Lower Umpqua Senior Center again this year.
Lower Umpqua Ministerial Association will be sponsoring
the event and all churches in the area are asked to donate
cans of cranberries, Cool Whip, pies, veggie plates and $40.
Don of Don’s Diner will be making the stuffing and Leona of
Sugar Shack will make the dinner rolls.
At each participating church, there will be sign up sheets
available for those interested in volunteering.
The meal will be served at noon and is expected to feed
between 120 and 160 people.
For information, call Pastor Jim Ives at 541-271-3771.

contact would contaminate
the eggs and diminish the
chance of fertilization.
The eggs from all the
females were combined into
a white, 5-gallon bucket.
After mixing, Jackson divided the eggs into four buckets. Then the males were
brought in.
Squeezing toward the
back of the male salmon,
Jackson released seminal
fluid into each bucket. Two
squirts from two males.
“This way, all the males
get to breed with all the
females,” she said.
Once the eggs and seminal fluid were mixed together students in charge of
counting carefully took a
cup full of eggs to measure.
The number counted is how
the STEP volunteers and
ODFW calculate how many
eggs are bred.
“It’s a tedious yet important process,” Jackson said.
Stubblefield spent two
days before the event cooking nearly 15 gallons of meat
sauce. All the food served
was donated to Christmas in
July from the Eagles club.
Dessert was included too,
a decorated sheet cake, but
also making rounds were

Wrapping up the evening,
and perhaps, offering the
most entertainment was the
Chinese auction. Those
wishing to bid on an item
raised a dollar bill in the air,
designated runners ran to
the bidders snatching the
one’s. Whichever dollar bill
was grabbed last when time
ran out, earned the item.
Christmas in July is an
organization that helps elderly and community members in need with home
repairs such as wheel chair
ramps, minor home repairs,
weeding and gardening and
a variety of other projects.
CIJ is also at the ready to
help with emergencies that
occur during the winter
months.

Councilor Ginger
Anderson has already
stepped down from her seat
on the council because she
has relocated out of the area.
Councilors Bill Otis and Bill
Walker will sit through their
last council meeting on Dec.
3, but serve until the end of
the month.
“Replacing the councilors
we’re losing will be challenging, there are definitely
big shoes to fill,” Tymchuk
said. “They were hard working, careful councilors.
Generally, the community
has chosen wisely in who
they wish to replace them
with.”
Tymchuk, Barth, Murphy
and McCollum will be sworn
in on Monday, Jan. 7, prior to
the regular city council
meeting.

American Welding Society Coos
Bay Chapter underway at SWOCC
CONTRIBUTED ARTICLE
For The Umpqua Post
A chapter of the American Welding
Society is organizing on the Coos Bay
Campus. Jessica Carder, a second year welding student said, “Women can excel at this
vocation, it requires attention to detail and
more and more women are pursuing this
skill.”
Carder hopes the club will help promote
the idea of women in welding by becoming
more visible at SWOCC and in the community.
Brandon Ledsome, also a second year
welding student, said the students are
organizing themselves to carry out new
projects that will help the welding program
and the community. Welding materials are
very expensive and the cost of certification
can be expensive for students who are
already stretching their budgets.
Last year, the students designed and
built a trailer and barbecues. The barbecues
rival commercially built barbecues that are
seen at community fairs and similar functions. They see the club volunteering to
make this equipment available to community projects for a donation in return.
Carder and Ledsome said many businesses in the community recognize the value
of the welding program at SWOCC and have
given materials and supplies to help the
program. These companies include: Oregon
Tool, Oregon Pacific, Farrs True Value
Hardware, Industrial Source, Empire
Mercantile, Farwest Tire, Coos Head Forest
Products, Gold Coast Truck Repair,
Shinglehouse, Bed Rock Cat & Core.

THE UMPQUA POST
Contributed Photo
Reedsport’s volleyball team poses with its trophy at the state tournament on Saturday. The Braves finished
third for the second straight year.
Braves place third at state tourney
THE UMPQUA POST
Reedsport senior Taylor Lewis was
the Braves’ only setter for the volleyball
team during the state tournament seasons in 2010 and 2011.
But when Lewis had an illness earlier this season, the Braves were forced to
find another option, and coach James
Hixenbaugh called on his daughter,
sophomore Kaylynn, to fill in.
That move proved fortuitous for the
Braves at the Class 2A state tournament over the weekend.
Lewis went down with a wrist
injury during the fifth game of the
team’s opening match against WestonMcEwen, and Kaylynn Hixenbaugh
was called into duty as setter the rest of
the tournament.
The Braves held on to beat the
TigerScots, 25-14, 25-21, 23-25, 16-25,
15-13 in the quarterfinals.
Monica Vaughn had 21 kills, 14 digs
and two aces, Gabby White had 11 kills
and four blocks and Lewis had 41
assists.
Reedsport’s dreams of a state title
ended in the semifinals for the third
straight year, when Days Creek topped
Reedsport in four games Friday night,
18-25, 25-18, 25-23, 25-20. Hixenbaugh
like that and end my senior year that
way, too,” she said.
Vaughn also was on the first team
last year, when the Braves lost to
Portland Christian in the semifinals and
beat Heppner in the third-place match.
Lewis was on the second team last year.
Eden Huebner, who graduated last
spring, was on the first team both last
fall and in 2010, when Reedsport finished fifth.
Reedsport finished the season with
a 22-7 record overall and won its third
straight Sunset Conference championship.
The team’s only losses to Class 2A
schools were a 2-1 setback to Culver
during a tournament at McKenzie and
the loss to Days Creek in the semifinals
Friday. The Braves beat Days Creek
during a preseason tournament at
Reedsport.
Three of the other losses came to
Creswell, which finished fourth in the
Class 3A tournament, and two others
were to teams that finished third in
their tournaments (Marshfield in Class
5A and Blanchet Catholic in Class 3A).
The only loss to a team that didn’t
place in its state tournament was a
defeat to Class 4A Siuslaw in the season-opening Reedsport Invitational.
had 26 assists as she stepped in at setter, Vaughn had 13 kills, Kayla Doane
had nine kills and four blocks and Madi
Richardson tallied 10 digs.
But the Braves bounced back
Saturday afternoon to top Heppner in
the third-place match, 25-22, 17-25,
25-22, 25-23.
It was the second straight year that
Reedsport placed third, the best finish
in school history.
Vaughn, a senior outside hitter, was
named to the all-tournament first
team, while junior middle hitter White
was a second-team selection.
“I thought we played really well and
with a lot of heart, that last game
against Heppner especially,” Vaughn
said.
In the third-place match, the Braves
bounced back after the rough second
set, she said.
“We just kept going strong and
working hard for every point,” Vaughn
said. “Everyone was getting excited
and cheering, and it was so awesome
just coming back like that after our loss
against Days Creek because we could
have easily given up.”
Instead, the Braves ended up earning another state trophy.
“It was really cool to end our season
The fall sports season has
just ended, at least for the
volleyball players, but practice
for the winter sports started
this week at Reedsport
Community Charter School.
And it’s only two weeks
before Reedsport opens the
basketball season with a
Sunset Conference doubleheader against Coquille, the
defending league champion
for both boys and girls.
The Braves and Red
Devils meet on Nov. 28 at
Reedsport, with the girls
game at 6 p.m., followed by
the boys about 7:30 p.m.
Both Reedsport head
coaches return, with Kent
Kristensen leading the boys
and Stu Richardson coaching the girls.
The Coquille game is
Reedsport’s only Sunset
Conference action before
January. But the highlights
of the first month of the season include the annual Dune
Country Classic on Dec. 21
and 22.
Reedsport’s wrestling
team, meanwhile, will begin
its season on Dec. 1 at the
Glide Invitational.
The Braves will be
coached this year by Philip
Lopez, who returns to the
school after two years away
from the team.
Lopez also is planning to
start a junior high team.

Crabbers still getting limits in Winchester Bay
Crabbing at Winchester
Bay remains good. It seems
that female and undersized
crab are becoming an everbigger nuisance, but crabbers willing to put in their
time are getting limits of
legal crab. Of course, boat
crabbers have it easier than
the dockbound crabbers and
last week, it seems that the
crab even moved upriver
somewhat, as some good
catches were made more
than a half-mile upriver
from the entrance to
Winchester Bay’s East Boat
Basin.
It seems that the very
best dock crabbing is occurring before daybreak and
after dark, but those willing
to put in their time are
catching some crabs all day
long — but those catching
limits are definitely earning
them.
Salmon fishing pressure
on the lower Umpqua River
has almost stopped.
However, the very few
anglers still trying for
salmon are catching some.
Local angler Tom
Crittenton weighed in a
nearly 16-pound Chinook
taken on a spinner near the
mouth of Winchester Creek
last Saturday and a few
salmon are still being
hooked at Half Moon Bay
and Osprey Point when
anglers are fishing it. The
salmon fishing pressure is
so low, that one is forced to
wonder if the catch per
angler has dropped all that
much.
On the ODFW website,
the publishing of the catch
rate of wild coho on Oregon
coastal rivers was delayed,
but statistics for most of the
wild coho rivers for the week
ending Nov. 4 are now on
the site — and the catch (not
the catch rates) statistics are hottest bite was on

Fishing pressure on the
South Jetty and Triangle
areas at Winchester Bay is
increasing and bottomfish
angling has been good.
Almost all the warmwater fishing pressure in our
area has been directed
towards yellow perch.
Trout anglers should
consider stillfishing with
bait as the water cools down
and the trout become less
active. The best fishing is in
the area’s larger lakes that
hold native, searun and carryover trout.
I hear a lot of griping
about the ODFW and while I
seldom directly contradict
the whiners, I often wonder
how much griping they
would do if they lived in
California. In the last few
years, for what appears to be
a very small financial donation to the California
Department of Fish and
Game, the United States
Humane Society has managed to have a lot to say
about hunting and fishing in
California. Additionally,
SB1221, recently signed into
law in California makes it
illegal to use dogs to hunt or
even chase bear or bobcats.
The bill also gives the
California Department of
Fish and Game broad powers
when it comes to establishing hound hunting requirements that could ultimately
make it necessary for onerous documentation for
hounds to the point where a
microchip may be required.
This is not to say that these
things will come to pass, just
that they are possible under
the new bill.
