Letter: HCP can help North Coast Fishing
I felt pretty slighted after reading Representative Javadi’s letter to the editor dated May 12th. Of course, it’s good to have a champion for the timber industry, as the representative points out, timber is an essential component to our rural community and should be for generations to come. What I found disconcerting was the utter disregard for the fishing industry, both sport and commercial, that has been absolutely crippled by overwhelming closures in recent years and will authentically have to call on the federal government...

TILLAMOOK COUNTY WELLNESS: Small Steps to Build Multidimensional Mental Health
May is Mental Health Awareness month yet as a mental health professional, I focus on mental health year-round. I also approach mental health as multidimensional, meaning that it goes beyond just mental wellbeing and includes all eight dimensions of wellness. If one dimension suffers, then overall wellbeing suffers and that impacts mental health even further due to increased stress and decreased coping mechanisms.
