Their eccentric cousin Chick stirs the pot, while their flamboyant lawyer Barnette offers shaky legal support and a dash of unexpected romance.

Have a question about Manzanita City issues? Ask a Councilor.

Submitted By: citycouncil@cityofmanzanita.com – Click to email about this post
We live in the age of social media, which clearly has its advantages and disadvantages. We can share information and opinions with people we might not be able to otherwise. Unfortunately, and not surprisingly, misinformation can start innocently enough but quickly develop into conspiracy theories, creating community divisions and discord.

To combat the rumors, it’s always good to go to the source and get the facts!

At February’s Manzanita City Council meeting, Linda Kozlowski, speaking for the Council encouraged anyone with questions to ask a Councilor. Councilors can be reached at their city email address and may be able to answer your question immediately or they may have to do some research and get back to you. If the information requested requires staff research and a public records request, Councilors will be able to let you know. But start first with a Councilor!

January’s Manzanita City Council Meeting was partially focused on gratitude to our first responders who were hard at work during the recent ice storm. We learned that TPUD was working to restore power at 2 in the morning, that Tillamook County Public Works was deicing the streets way before the storm, that Nehalem Bay Fire Rescue fire volunteers creatively accessed a patient in the icy hills of Wheeler! There were so many community volunteers and public servants trying their best to do a good job.

During emergencies we all seem to put aside our differences and come together for the greater good. We focus on solving the problem at hand. We recognize our shared humanity regardless of our politics and help each other out. Let’s do that without an ice storm.

One way we can all do this is to make sure we have the facts from a first-hand source before we share information.

Lucy Brook commented recently on BBQ:

What a great idea, instead of complaining vociferously and perhaps publicly with partial information, you contact a city councilor and have a conversation. After all, they’re steeped in the details of city government and can likely answer your questions and concerns better than anyone else. Especially if the “anyone else” is using partial or biased information. Which does happen from time to time, not?

And, as Jim Heffernan recently posted on the Tillamook County Pioneer, let’s use a Civility Pledge in talking to each other about issues where we have differences. Civility doesn’t mean we don’t disagree and discuss those disagreements but that we recognize each other as neighbors, not enemies.

If you have questions about Manzanita City issues, go directly to the source. Send your questions directly to a Councilor. We look forward to hearing from you!

We now have a group email address you can use to send a message to all 5 City Council members:

citycouncil@ci.manzanita.or.us

Individual City Council members email addresses:

Kathryn Stock (kstock@ci.manzanita.or.us)

Health District Selects Contractor or Health Center Project

Submitted By: marc@nehalembayhd.org – Click to email about this post
For immediate release:
February 23, 2024

Nehalem Bay Health District Selects Bremik Construction for New Health Center Project

(Wheeler) – Following a competitive process the Nehalem Bay Health District has selected Bremik Construction, an Oregon firm with extensive health care and coastal construction experience, as Construction Manager/General Contractor for the new Nehalem Bay Health Center and Pharmacy project.

Bremik won the engagement with the Health District by demonstrating successful construction management of similar health care facilities and by proposing the most cost-effective approach.

Bremik, founded in 2004, recently worked with the District’s architecture team – Scott Edwards Architects – on a medical office building in Hood River and the Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center in Newberg. Bremik has also done extensive work for Providence Health & Services and Kaiser Permanente. Bremik has also worked with the Health District’s owner’s representative, Klosh Group, on a variety of projects.

Bremik’s coastal construction experience includes work on the Cannon Beach Elementary School, a motel to housing conversion in Seaside and the Columbia River Maritime Museum in Astoria.

Bremik principal and partner Tygh Colton is serving as the preconstruction manager of the Health Center project. Susan Odeh Brandt is the project manager and Kevin McMurray will be the project superintendent once construction begins. The combined Bremik team has more than 75 years of construction experience.

Bremik has also won industry and union recognition for its apprentice programs that have involved thousands of hours of training and work by female carpenters. Bremik has an extensive record of working with small and minority owned businesses and subcontractors and has embraced the District’s expectation that north coast subcontractors will be involved in the project.

“It is an important milestone in this transformative project to have the Bremik firm and a complete team onboard,” said Health District president Marc C. Johnson. “We know that the coastal environment, as well as a very detailed and complicated health care construction project present challenges and we are fortunate to have a team with deep experience to bring this project to competition in a timely and cost-effective manner.”

“The project aligns with Bremik’s mission to build projects that benefit the local community,” said Bremik’s Tygh Colton. “It is an honor to be working with the Nehalem Bay Health District and Scott Edwards Architecture to deliver this project to serve the Nehalem Bay region.”

Johnson expressed thanks on behalf of the Health District board to community members Lloyd Lindley, a retired landscape architect, and Brad Berman, an experienced construction project professional, for their assistance in evaluating construction manager/general contractor qualifications and approaches.

Scott Edwards, the District’s architect, is currently working on detailed construction drawings for the new 16,000 square foot Health Center and Pharmacy. The District and its design and construction team expect to submit permit applications to Tillamook County in the late April timeframe with a summer target date to commence construction.

The city of Wheeler conditionally approved the design of the new facility in December, including signing off on parking and heights requirements. The city asked for additional detail on landscaping plans and stormwater drainage, issues that will be addressed during the current phase of architecture work.

The new Health Center and Pharmacy, located at US Highway 101 and Hospital Road in Wheeler, will nearly triple the size of the existing Health Center in Wheeler (the former Rinehart Clinic), including a larger, modern pharmacy, a dental suite and exam rooms to accommodate current patients and future growth.

FOREST POETS EVENT! Thurs Feb 29, 6 to 8 pm Astoria

Submitted By: koptiuch@asu.edu – Click to email about this post
On Thursday, February 29, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., North Coast Communities for Watershed Protection invites you to join us for our first FOREST POETS event in the Lovell Taproom at Fort George Brewery and Public House, 1483 Duane St. in Astoria. (Note: The doors open at 5:00 p.m. for food and drinks before the event begins.)

This free event will feature readings from several North Coast poets, including the award-winning Robert Michael Pyle, as well as Jim Dott, Jennifer Nightingale, Reba Owen, Logan Garner, and Lauren Mallett. Their poetry selections will be inspired by, and celebrate, our temperate rainforest ecosystem that has forests and bodies of water which serve as muse for many of us living in the area.

Robert Michael Pyle lives, writes, and studies natural history along Grays River in Washington’s heavily-logged Willapa Hills. His 1986 book Wintergreen is widely considered a classic testament to the resilience of life in the land of logging. His 28 books of essays, poetry, and fiction often turn to the woods and waters for their subject. Pyle is the recipient of two National Outdoor Book Awards, the John Burroughs Medal, as well as a Distinguished Service Award from the Society of Conservation Biology.

This first Forest Poets event is being coordinated by North Coast Communities for Watershed Protection and Fort George as a part of the brewery’s Thursday Lecture Series. Doors will open at the Lovell Taproom at 5:00 p.m., allowing time for mingling, food, and drinks before the event begins at 6:00 p.m. During the event, there will be a brief intermission. You will also get to hear from NCCWP about our current and upcoming plans in Clatsop and Tillamook Counties, and how you can get involved with efforts to safeguard and restore your local watershed.

Nevertheless, the accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences!
Part Monty Python, part Sherlock Holmes, this Olivier Award–winning comedy is a global phenomenon that’s guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!
Directed by Frank Squillo
Performance Dates: May 31st – June 16th. AUDITION DETAILS AT www.RiverbendPlayers.org

CRIMES OF THE HEART OPENS MARCH 1st

Tickets at www.RiverbendPlayers.org
CRIMES OF THE HEART:

This darkly comedic play by Beth Henley delves into the messy lives of the Magrath women, each grappling with their own “crimes of the heart.”

Under a searing Mississippi sun, the Magrath sisters’ fragile lives shatter when Babe, the youngest, shoots her philandering husband.

Summoned home, the eldest, Lenny, wrestles with small-town stagnation and dreams of escape.

Meg, the middle sister, a washed-up singer, drowns her past in whiskey, returning with secrets clinging to her like Spanish moss.

As Babe’s legal storm brews, the kitchen of their childhood home becomes a pressure cooker of buried memories and blistering truths.

Past resentments erupt, revealing the scars of their mother’s suicide and their father’s desertion.

Their eccentric cousin Chick stirs the pot, while their flamboyant lawyer Barnette offers shaky legal support and a dash of unexpected romance.

This Pulitzer Prize-winning play paints a bittersweet portrait of Southern women struggling to rise above their “crimes of the heart” and embrace the promise of a brighter future.
