Clean up After Your Dog
Posted: May 26, 2015

As a full time resident of Lincoln City for several years, I have become increasingly irate about the lack of responsibility of many dog owners, local and out-of-towners, refusing to pick up after their dogs.

COLUMN: Snail Mail
Posted: May 22, 2015

Okay, let me start by getting my bias out of the way. I am a retired mail carrier. The term “snail mail” has always irked me. The job is not as easy as it looks. You ought to try walking a mile (or 10) in a mail carrier's shoes.

COLUMN: Solving the senior hunger crisis in our community
Posted: May 19, 2015

According to the national Meals on Wheels Association, three out of every five seniors in Oregon struggle with hunger.1 This is difficult to fathom, when so many wonderful public programs exist to help seniors as they age. But the truth is that government funding is never enough to ensure that senior programs thrive.

Good Management And A Little Luck
Posted: May 14, 2015

Current management has taken the first steps (sometimes the hardest) toward our most promising projects: sewering Devils Lake, shoreline and wetland recovery, and installing aeration for both short and long-term relief from harmful algae blooms and invasive weeds.

What Kind of Cleaner?
Posted: May 14, 2015

I have stopped by the DLWID office to find out what type of cleaner to use to wash my deck, only to have Mr. Robertson tell he me he didn’t know. ask someone at ace hardware. I stated at the April 9 meeting that the lower water level made it harder to access my boat. Board member Randy Skirvin said he didn't if it was harder to get into a boat. Maybe he hasn't had the pleasure of assisting a aging parent and the injuries they substain from falls. At the time of the April meeting the lake level was close to the 9.53 level. Mr. Norris made a reasonable motion to put the containment boards in and to hold the level at 9.53 for 24 hours, then remove the boards. This would have saved our water right for five more years. The board voted this down. At this time we are experiencing drought conditions around the state. This is a poor time to give up 1/3 of our water rights. For the board to vote to start the permit process to remove the current dam shows they have a different agenda than the stated current board policy. We need the board to work on getting sewers around the lake and to stop the flooding of East Devils Lake Road. Its time to change the board. Vote for Kent Norris, Tina French and Bill Sexton.

Too Little, Too Late
Posted: May 11, 2015

I appreciate the progress that the DLWID is making toward sewering the lake. The initiation of the pilot sewer program in Randy Weldon's and Brian Green’s neighborhood was a great first step. The City and the DLWID have learned and will learn a lot during the development of this project that will be invaluable for sewering the rest of the Lake. It is great to finally see action on this important front.

Susan often reminds me to lock the door whenever we leave the house. I once told her that it was inconvenient and someone wanting to rob us would break in anyway. And with cool wifely logic, she replied, “Why make it easy for them?”
