    Geology Lecture Series: 17th Annual Cascadia Anniversary Lecture

    01/20/2022

    Read More
    Coos Bay, OR – Southwestern Oregon Community College's popular Geology Lecture Series continues for the 2021-22 academic year with our annual Cascadia Anniversary Lecture. Join us for New Insights on Cascadia, by Dr. Chris Goldfinger (Oregon State University) at 7:00 pm, Wednesday, January 26, 2022. The lecture will be presented virtually and accessed via Livestream at the College website (https://livestream.com/swocc/geology2021-22).
    This special talk in the geology lecture series is scheduled on the 322nd anniversary of the last great Cascadia earthquake, which took place at approximately 9:00 pm on January 26, 1700 with an estimated 9.0 magnitude. The Cascadia Subduction Zone is a 600-mile fault that runs from northern California to British Columbia and is about 100 miles off the Pacific coast shoreline. Oregon has the potential for a 9.0+ magnitude earthquake caused by the Cascadia Subduction Zone and a resulting tsunami of up to 100 feet in height that will impact the coastal area.
    Dr. Goldfinger completed his undergraduate work at Humboldt State before earning MS and PhD degrees from Oregon State University. He is presently a Professor of Marine Geology and the Director of the Active Tectonics and Seafloor Mapping Laboratory at Oregon State University. As a marine geologist and geophysicist his research focuses on great earthquakes, tsunami and structure of tectonic plate boundary fault zones around the world. He has experience with deep sea submersibles, sidescan sonar, seismic reflection, and other marine geophysical tools deployed on over 40 oceanographic cruises made over the last 25 years. Dr. Goldfinger works on great subduction zone earthquakes along the Cascadia, NE Japan, and Sumatran plate margins, as well as the Northern San Andreas Fault off northern California using the evidence for earthquakes found in deep-sea sediments. Goldfinger has extensive scientific publications and has worked on documentaries with Discovery Canada, National Geographic, NOVA, the History Channel, the BBC, Oregon Public Broadcasting, TED Talks, Omni Films and others. Many people will also recognize him from his interview with Kathyrn Schultz, The Really Big One that was published in The New Yorker.
    A Q & A session with the speaker will follow the lecture. Advance questions may be sent to Ron Metzger at rmetzger@socc.edu. All talks are archived for later viewing.
    Lectures in the series are free. Future talks this year include Dr. Sean Davis (NOAA) on Tuesday, February 8 at 7:00 pm with "Lessons at the school of hard knocks: from the ozone hole to global climate change" also via Livestream. Our hope is to be back to a live audience in Spring 2022. Lecture Series Sponsors include DB Western, Southwestern Foundation, The Mill Casino & Resort, Ocean Discovery Lecture Series and the College. For additional information or to submit questions prior to the talk contact Ron Metzger at rmetzger@socc.edu or 541-888-7216.

    Help for Individual Artists

    01/20/2022

    Read More
    The application is now live for the Artist Resilience Program, a second round of relief funding offered by the Oregon Arts Commission in partnership with Oregon Community Foundation and the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation. The partnership, which began with 2020's Artist Relief Program, invests another $1.5 million in support for artists' recovery from the pandemic.
    The Artist Resilience Program provides relief funding to Oregon artists who have experienced financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic due to loss of income, loss of opportunity or other unanticipated impacts to their artistic practice. Funding is intended to help sustain the artistic practice of professional artists. Oregon's professional artists were especially hard hit during the pandemic. Most of them rely on public events to sell their work, and the statewide shut down dramatically reduced their opportunities for income. Many were forced to give up their art to seek other means of supporting themselves.
    The Artist Resilience Program supports professional artists who have experienced loss of revenue of $1,000 or more between January 1 and December 31, 2021. Awards generally range from $1,000 to $5,000. The Arts Commission determines awards based on peer panel review, number of applications and available grant funds. There are limited resources and not all applicants receive funding.
    If you have any questions about the Artist Resilience Program, please contact Eleanor.Sandys@biz.oregon.gov or see https://www.oregonartscommission.org/grants/artist-resilience-program

    AG Rosenblum Encourages Oregonians to Watch Out for Suspicious Covid-19 Testing Sites

    01/20/2022

    Read More
    With the growth of the highly contagious Omicron variant and the demand for Covid-19 tests rising throughout Oregon, Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum reminded Oregonians to watch for testing sites that seem suspicious, or vendors that are selling at-home tests for sky-high prices.
    The Oregon Department of Justice (DOJ) asks Oregonians to report any dubious testing sites or vendors selling at-home tests at inflated prices to the Attorney General's Consumer Hotline at 1-877-877-9392 or www.OregonConsumer.Gov.
    "The huge demand for Covid-19 testing of all kinds—at home tests, rapid antigen tests, PCR tests–brings bad actors and some businesses trying to make a quick buck out from the shadows. We see it all the time in moments of desperation like this testing urgency," said Attorney General Rosenblum. "We are keeping a vigilant eye on the marketplace and working with OHA to ensure testing sites are in compliance with state laws."
    Oregonians should be cautious about pop-up testing sites that charge out-of-pocket fees, do not display logos, do not disclose the laboratory performing the test, are not affiliated with a known organization, or that ask for sensitive information, like social security numbers, that is not necessary for insurance. Consumers can locate a testing site through OHA's testing locator.
    Individuals are also selling at-home tests for inflated prices on sites like eBay, Craigslist and NextDoor. The average price for a package of two at-home Covid-19 tests should be around $20.00, so keep a lookout for exorbitant prices. Starting Saturday January 15, private insurers will have to cover the cost of eight at-home tests per member per month.
    If you are shopping online for Covid-19 at home test kits, follow these tips from the FDA:
    Make sure the test you're buying is authorized by the FDA. Check the FDA's lists of antigen diagnostic tests and molecular diagnostic tests before you buy to find the tests authorized for home use.
    Check out a seller before you buy, especially if you're buying from a site you don't know. Search online for the website, company, or seller's name plus words like "scam" or "complaint."
    Compare online reviews from a wide variety of websites. You can get a good idea about a company, product, or service from reading user reviews on various retail or shopping comparison sites. Always ask yourself: Where is this review coming from? Expert organizations may be more reliable than individual customers.
    Pay by credit card, and not a money order, prepaid card, or another form of payment that cannot be tracked or disputed.
    If you have information about, or think you have been scammed by a Covid-19 testing site, or want to report the price of a Covid-19 at home test being sold for exorbitant prices, please file a complaint with the Oregon Department of Justice at www.OregonConsumer.Gov or call the Attorney General's Consumer Hotline at 1-877-877-9392.
    If you have information about fraud associated with a medical provider, please file a complaint with OHA's Fraud Hotline at 1-888-FRAUD01 (1-888-372-8301) or online.

    Grant Helps Southwestern Increase Service To Veterans

    01/13/2022

    Read More
    Coos Bay, OR – Southwestern Oregon Community College is excited to announce it has received $32,182 to expand its veterans center on the Coos Bay campus and increase support for students at its Brookings campus. The funding is part of an Oregon Department of Veterans' Affairs (ODVA) grant package totaling $600,000 to expand Campus Veteran Resource Centers at 15 community colleges and public universities throughout Oregon.
    "I feel very fortunate that we have received the support for our Veterans Resource Center this year from ODVA. We wouldn't have one on campus if it wasn't for them," said Shana Brazil, Southwestern's Veterans Service Coordinator.
    Veteran Resource Centers are vital in helping veterans transition from military service to college life. The center's staff help veterans complete their educational and vocational goals and successfully transition back into the civilian workforce and community.
    The College received $54,092 in 2018-19, which helped develop and open the resource center on the Coos campus. ODVA then gave the college $72,460 to support services the following year.
    This new round of funding allows Southwestern to move the Veteran Resource Center to a larger space that includes a study area and the Veterans Services Coordinator office. The larger area will allow for more variety of uses by veterans, and their families will be welcome in the center as well. Brazil and her volunteers also will be able to increase the center's hours, staying open until 8 p.m. three-days a week.
    In addition, the grant will fund additional outreach and student support. This means opportunities to host on-campus speakers, trainings for staff and faculty, a suicide prevention seminar, and increased veteran events. The grant will also help to meet students' basic needs by providing snacks in the resource center, emergency lunch vouchers for the dining hall, and emergency gas cards.
    It's good news for veterans in Curry County as well. The grant will fund quarterly trips by the Veterans Service Coordinator to the college's Brookings campus. Veterans and their families living in Curry County can meet with the coordinator to get help filing VA paperwork, filling out financial aid forms, and registering for college courses.
    For more information regarding Southwestern's Veterans Services, please call 541-888-7236; email vets@socc.edu; or visit www.socc.edu/veterans.
    'Odyssey' Counts Physical Activity in Virtual Challenge

    12/30/2021

    Read More
    The Coos County Friends of Public Health has teamed up with the South Coast Striders hiking group to offer Odyssey 2022, a virtual fitness challenge that "virtually" tracks you as your earned miles take you 216 miles through Coos County. Each time you complete an exercise activity such as walking, running, biking, swimming, yoga, dance, paddling, golf, and more, you will advance along the route map, starting on New Year's Day at Sunset Bay, and ending at Coos Health & Wellness by the end of April.
    The "race" around Coos County in this virtual odyssey will take the participants through some of the unique locations in the county. Participants don't actually travel the route or visit the places, but instead can exercise in a number of different ways to earn miles on the virtual platform or "map." Almost any physical activity can earn you credit. In many cases, 30 minutes of sustained activity earns you a mile.
    Form teams and compete with and motivate your friends and family to start the year off right, achieving your fitness goals, while helping families get access to nutritious food and professional advice on nutrition. There is a $25 race fee and a $2.45 sign-up fee. Registration ends April 30, 2022. Get information at the Striders website: https://coostrails.com. The Coos County Friends of Public Health are hosting this event and all proceeds will go to the local Women, Infants, & Children (WIC) Special Supplemental Nutrition program benefiting expecting mothers and children.

This reserve is managed by the Oregon Department of State Lands and is protected for long-term research, water-quality monitoring, education, and coastal stewardship.

    Open Your Heart & Home To Foster Children

    09/12/2019

    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 Everychildcoos.org to learn more

    DUE TO COVID THESE MAY BE CANCELLED
    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.
