Page, who has been a broker in Til- lamook County for 25 years believes that those needs are best met by real estate brokers who have acute knowledge of the area and its specic challenges such as ood mapping and water rights, and in having a deep network of professionals for every need a buyer or seller may have. Page also stresses that, with methods of instan- taneous communications the need to be constantly accessible for clients is ab- solutely essential. “I can’t be in two places at once,” she said. To that end, she has also announced that she has formed a Real Estate Team with Tillamook County native and fellow broker Adam Schwend. “Adam has lived in Tillamook County almost all of his life. There isn’t a part of this county that he doesn’t know. He knows the inner workings of the com- munities, plus he’s incred- ibly well versed in digital marketing and advertising. “The concept of a Real Estate Team is the best possible set-up not only for our clients, but for us,” said Schwend. “One of us is always accessible, one of us can take a day off knowing that our clients have access to us seven days a week. Margaret and I work to- gether for every single one of our clients. They really do get a ‘two-for-one’ deal. Her decades of experience is something that our cli- ents and I are very fortu- nate to benefit from.” Along with a change of name and a focus on team- work, Page and Schwend are also moving their of- fice from Tillamook to the Nehalem-Manzanita area. “We’re focused not just on Tillamook, but the entire Oregon Coast,” Page point - ed out, “That isn’t new, but having our physical location more centralized between Tillamook and Clatsop Counties makes it easier for us to have a pres- ence in both areas.” Coast Real Estate Professionals is located at 36505 N. Highway 101 in between Nehalem and Manzanita. Margaret Page has been a broker in Tillamook County since she began in Real Estate 25 years ago. She has served in numer- ous positions in the Til- lamook Board of Realtors and the Oregon Association of Realtors (OAR), in- cluding serving on the OAR Executive Board of Directors. Along with her career in Real Estate she is also an active singer and actress, performing with the Coaster Theater, Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts and the Cannon Beach Chorus, among others. Adam Schwend has been a private Real Estate inves- tor for several years before partnering with Margaret Page. Along with a career in business, Adam is also a professional baritone, voice teacher and choral conduc- tor. He conducts several ensembles in the area and also regularly travels to perform. In the community, Adam serves as a member of the City of Tillamook Planning Commission, the Tillamook Urban Renewal Agency Budget Committee and the Tillamook County Board of Property Tax Ap- peals. He is also a member of the Rotary Club of Til- lamook and is President of the Monday Musical Club of Tillamook. Adam Schwend Margaret Page County recycling rate exceeds national average The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has released the official calculation of Tillamook County’s recycling and recovery rate for the year 2013. Tillamook County generated 30,410 tons of waste, and achieved a re- covery rate of 35.9 percent. Tillamook County Solid Waste Program Manager David McCall said: “While our total recovery rate of nearly 36 percent is commendable, and better than the national average, we still need to strive for increased waste preven- tion, reuse, and recycling. Every pound of waste which we don’t produce is waste which we don’t have to handle, and every pound of waste which we divert from the landfill saves our county money in disposal costs. We are still sending 20,000 tons of waste to the landfill near Corvallis every year, which means a lot in transporta- tion and disposal costs. It is my goal to reduce that quantity to about 15,000 tons, which would translate into a 50 percent diversion rate. This is economically realistic and feasible.” More details about the results can be found at: http://www co.tillamook.or.us/gov/ SolidWaste/2014 files/12-29-14 Tilla- mook WR Letter. pdf.

New year brings anticipation of dredge arrival By Laura Swanson The Port of Nehalem has been receiving regu- lar weekly updates of the progress on the dredging project in Garibaldi that Nehalem River Dredg- ing had scheduled prior to arriving back in Nehalem to x the problem created by the attempt to utilize in stream dispersion of spoils from dredging in January 2013.

While the Nehalem project is forecast to require a minimum of seven work- ing days, the Port is con - dent that there should be no problem meeting the Feb. 15, 2015 deadline for the work completion.
