    Rural Libraries and Walking Study


    Read More
    Residents of Coos Bay are invited to participate in a new study about community walking programs. A partnership between Coos Bay Public Library and the School of Nursing at Oregon Health and Science University aims to improve the health of rural Oregonians and learn more what makes a community walking program effective for rural communities.
    The walking programs will be led by a librarian at Coos Bay Public Library and meet at or near the library. Participants will meet once a week as a group and walk together for 20-40 minutes. Participants are invited to participate for two years. Each participant will receive a Fitbit and a T-shirt. Participants will also be invited to complete surveys and health assessments. The walking groups are expected to begin this spring. Community walking programs are a great way to meet people and socialize while walking.
    Twenty libraries across Oregon have been randomly assigned to implement one of two kinds of walking programs: walking only, Step It Up, or walking plus civic engagement, Change Club Step It Up. The civic engagement program teaches individuals how to make walking easier in their communities. Researchers want to learn which parts of these two programs are the most important when it comes to changing physical activity and engaging with the local community.
    Residents are eligible if they are 18 years old or older and currently exercise less than 3 days a week. Interested individuals can contact Paul at the Coos Bay Public Library by calling (541) 269-1101 x222 or sending a message to

    The 2023 fair dates are July 25th-29th. There are a few changes to this year's fair schedule. Tuesday 7/25 is free admission day for all but the carnival will not be open. Carnival dates are Wednesday 7/26 through Saturday 7/29. The Friday and Saturday rodeo will start 1 hour earlier at 6pm and the concerts will follow the rodeo at 9pm. New to this year's rodeo will be bronc riding, wild cow milking and a pig scramble. Headline concerts will be Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. The concert line up will be announced soon.
    We want to thank The Ford Family Foundation, Al Peirce Foundation, Coquille Indian Tribe and Cow Creek Tribe for their grant awards that have helped pay for new bucking chutes, new arena light poles and the new 700 seat bleachers at the rodeo arena. We would also like to thank Myrtle Point Rotary for purchasing 30 new picnic tables.
    Other projects that we are working on obtaining funding for are: Covering the main arena, new roofs for the two 4H horse barns, addition to the big 4H barn, a new food pavilion, new portable bleachers, new roping chute and a striping chute.
    If you would like to make a donation to one of these projects please indicate which project you are contributing towards. Contact the County Fair office @ 541-396-2200.
    Our new website should be up soon and I'll give another update next month announcing the concert band lineup.

    Open Your Heart & Home To Foster Children


    Read More
    Last year, nearly 400 children spent time in foster care in Coos County. 66% spent time in more than one foster home. Many were split from their siblings.
    If a natural disaster hit our state and children were wandering the street without someone to care for them, each of us would open our homes to help in the crisis. With more than 350 children currently in foster care and more entering the system every day, we're in the midst of a disaster in our county.
    Oregon's Department of Human Services (DHS) works hard to care for children and families in crisis, but is often left with few resources for volunteer and foster parent recruitment efforts.
    If we don't step in, many children will be left without the care, comfort, and safety of a loving home during times of trauma, transition, and uncertainty. We can do better for Coos County's children. We know that our community want to take action, but they just don't know where to begin. Many of us feel helpless, doing nothing or never considering foster parenting.
    Every Child gathers community members in partnership with Oregon's Department of Human Services (DHS) to aide vulnerable children and families. And by doing so, we're able to bring love, care, and support to vulnerable children and families who previously had nowhere to turn.
    Everyone has something to bring to foster care — be it donating, volunteering or fostering. Go to to learn more

    CASA Invites You To Be A Volunteer For A Child!


    Read More
    CASA of Coos and Curry Counties is looking for volunteers who want to help make a difference in children's lives. We train and support volunteers to advocate for children in foster care. We provide all the training and support needed.
    How CASA Works: When a child comes into foster care a judge will ask for a CASA. Our program finds a volunteer who is ready to serve a child and we have them appointed. The CASA will go visit the child in their resource (foster) home to make sure their needs are being met and hear from the child's resource parents. The CASA needs to visit the child at least once per month. CASAs can go and speak with anyone involved with the child. This includes teachers, counselors, doctors, family, etc. With help from their CASA staff supervisor, the CASA will prepare a report for the court, that gives the judge more information for making decisions for the child. CASAs preferably serve one child at a time. Out of the home volunteer time (visiting child, attending meetings) is about 5 hours a month, in-home time (reading documents and emails) is about 5 hours a month.
    Every child deserves to have a voice and an adult, just like you, making sure that voice is heard! We offer new CASA training at least 3 times per year. Contact our CASA office for more information., 541-435-7103.

    As some of you may have heard, the Chamber of Commerce was feeling like it would not be possible to host the Oregon Divisional Chainsaw Carving Championship in 2023. Thanks to the huge amount of love and support from the community we will be moving forward. This event means a great deal to the Chamber and to Reedsport and the surrounding areas. In order for this event to carry on successfully there are some things we need. We are in need of cedar logs for the quick carve competition. It needs to be solid pieces that are at least 24" in diameter. The Chamber is in search of someone with the ability to haul wood and unload it when they get to Reedsport. Most importantly, the Chamber is in need of volunteers for the Chainsaw Carving Championship. You can go to our website, and click on the volunteer tab to share your contact information and let us know how you can help We appreciate it so much and can't wait for Father's Day Weekend, June 15 – 18, 2023. See you in the sawdust!

Accepted Shopper Abbreviations  For consistency & clarity in the South Coast Shopper we use a set of standard classified ad abbreviations. They are listed here to help advertisers in writing their ads and readers in understanding the ads. (There is a fee for NOT abbreviating classified ads because our rates are based on these abbreviations)  UPDATE! We use abbreviations to save space in the paper, saving cost, that we pass on to our advertisers with lower classified rates than comparable papers across the Nation. A new way of naming products has developed that make product names unnecessarily longer. We will list these names in the traditional way to continue to save space in the paper, saving cost that we can continue to pass on to our advertisers. Examples: Ranger XLT by Ford would be abbreviated to: Ford Ranger XLT OceanRunner Rainbow Series by WildSeas would be abbreviated to: WildSeas Rainbow OceanRunner In the body of an ad always use numerals. Example: Newer 3bdr home. At the beginning of an ad spell out short numbers. (Example: Three bdr home.) As always, if you do not want your ad abbreviate we can use the longer version for $2.
