During the Fall and Winter sports seasons, there are a couple groups of students that go out of their way to help cheer on the home team.
Neah-Kah-Nie High School, Nestucca High School, and Tillamook High School have had cheer squads and pep bands at several sporting events over the past five plus months.

Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA) will be presenting "God of Carnage" for three weekends in September.
"God of Carnage" is a one act play, where two couples meet for the first time after an incident on the playground between their 11 year old children. They hope to discuss the situation civilly, but as the night wears on, communications break down.
"God of Carnage" is written by Yasmina Rena. The play, originally written in French and performed in France, gained world wide attention when it was translated to English and performed in the UK and US. It won a Tony award for "Best Play" in 2009.

I found a copy of The Tillamook Herald published 105 years ago (8 August 1913) last night and found it to be rather intriguing on a couple of fronts.
What first stood out what the adoption of the labor laws in regards to girls, not boys, but to girls! The cultural difference of 100 years in how we view ourselves is quite interesting. But after a second reading, what sunk in was this: with this legislation, Oregon is the first state to pass a compulsory minimum wage!
This makes one wonder what is it that we do today that will catch the attention of people 100 years from now.
What is interesting to note about this
From the Oregon Coast Dance Center:
Ballet set to classic rock legend Led Zepplin’s “Kashmir”. A performance to Martin
Luther King’s legendary “I Have A Dream” speech. Jazz in the style of legendary
choreographer Bob Fosse. Even a dance about the legend of the unicorn! Join Oregon Coast
Dance Center for these legends, and many more legendary performances, at their 43 rd
annual dance concert , held June 15 th & 16 th at Tillamook High School
In picking the Legends theme, owner Lisa Greiner said, “I was thinking about dance
performance themes last fall, and during that time attended the Oregon Symphony’s Led
Zepplin tribute concert. Hearing “Kashmir” played by a symphony orchestra was so powerful
I got goosebumps and I knew I needed to pick a theme where I could incorporate it. That
started me thinking about other legendary bands and singers, which evolved into legendary
dancers, and then legends in general…and a theme was born!”
Performances will be held at Tillamook High School’s Auditorium Friday June 15 th at
7:00 pm, and Saturday June 16 th at 2:00 pm. Admission is $5, or 2 cans of food, per person
for the Oregon Food Bank. Since the mid-90s, Oregon Coast Dance Center has
accumulatively raised over 15,000 lbs of food at their annual end of year performances,
providing over 9,500 meals to residents of Tillamook County.
Registration for Oregon Coast Dance Center’s summer classes and tumbling camps is
now open - registration for their fall dance classes will be open the week of June 11 th . Find
