    Read More
    The FILM NOIR series at Coos Bay Public Library continues on Sunday, November 18th at 4:00. "Gun Crazy" (1950) is this month's feature.
    John Dall plays Bart Tare, a timorous, emotionally disturbed World War II veteran who has had a lifelong fixation with guns. He meets a kindred spirit in carnival sharpshooter Annie Laurie Starr (Peggy Cummins), who is equally disturbed, a lot smarter, and a lot more dangerous. Beyond their physical attraction to one another, both Dall and Cummins are obsessed with firearms. Aimless Bart joins the traveling show and begins a romance with Annie, but her dangerously rebellious spirit soon gets them both fired. Annie isn't happy with their financial situation, so at her behest the couple begins a cross-country string of daring robberies, managing to elude the authorities until Annie insists on pulling one last job.
    The Film Noir series is held on the third Sunday of the month. Everyone is welcome at this free program sponsored by The Friends of Coos Bay Public Library. The Library is located at 525 Anderson Avenue. Please call 269-1101 or visit coosbaylibrary.org for further information about this program.

    HEALTH & WELLNESS: Lions Launch New Assistance Clinic

    07/19/2018

    Read More
    The Coos Bay Lions Club Sight Program is changing the way we accept applications. Before we were depending on our club members to get us names and telephone numbers, then we would mail out applications and certificates. This whole process could take 6 weeks or more.
    We will now be hosting a Sight Clinic on the 4th Saturday of every month at the Coos Bay Library from 1pm to 4pm. At this clinic we will be processing applications and giving certificates on site.
    Anyone seeking our assistance with eye exams and glasses will need to come in person and bring proof of income, proof of residency and a picture ID. For emergency situations (ie. glasses broken but needed for work or school) we can expedite the process over the phone.
    If you have any questions you can reach the Lions club by phone or e-mail: 541-252-9930, cblionsightprogram@gmail.com. Or you can contact Laura Goode, sight chairman, at 541-297-6336

Abbreviations

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.
