    FUN-draiser for C.R.O.W. and OCHS

    09/23/2021

    Read More
    "Some fundraisers are really...FUN!" said Melanie Heard, Artistic Director of C.R.O.W. (Children's Repertory of OR Workshops). The local youth arts organization recently teamed up with the Oregon Coast Humane Society to create a one-of-a-kind, humorous photo calendar featuring the adorable pets of OCHS and C.R.O.W.'s amazing Tutu Dads.
    C.R.O.W.'s Artistic Director and Calendar Photographer, Melanie Heard and OCHS's Executive Director, Elizabeth Thompson, collaborated to create the calendar and "the result is something pretty fabulous," said Heard. "Each calendar month features a creative photograph of an adopted (or adoptable) pet, posed with an adorable Tutu Dad. And I must give a shoutout to the OCHS staff, particularly Abby Stollar, for being a huge help!"
    "When Melanie invited us to partner on this special FUN-draiser, we were thrilled. It is PAWSOME to partner with another local non-profit in a way that supports our community members, both two-legged and four-legged," said Thompson.
    For those who may not know, the Tutu Dads are a group of local fathers and community members who support C.R.O.W. through comedic dance presentations. They have become somewhat of an icon in Florence, and one Tutu Dad even reported that he had been asked for his autograph in the grocery store. The Tutu Dads have developed a fan club following.
    All proceeds from the sale of the 2022 fundraiser calendar go directly to supporting operational expenses for both non-profit organizations. Any profits will be split 50/50. It's no secret that both organizations have continued to struggle to make ends meet, during COVID.
    Calendars cost $15 each, plus $6 flat rate shipping (if mailed). The calendar is 8.5" by 11" and is made with high quality, glossy photo weight paper. To purchase a calendar in person, please visit the Humane Society Thrift Shop during business hours, located at 1193 Bay St. in Florence, or the Humane Society, located at 2840 Rhododendron Dr. in Florence. To purchase a calendar with shipping, please visit https://www.crowkids.com/tutu-dads
    "There are limited quantities available, and this calendar makes a hilarious gift. Put one on your wall, and we know it will put a big smile on your face as you navigate 2022. Plus, you can feel good knowing that you are supporting youth arts education and Florence's amazing no-kill animal shelter." said Heard.
    If you have any questions about this project, please contact C.R.O.W. at crowtheatrekids@yahoo.com

    "The Sum of Us Class" at Unity By The Bay

    09/02/2021

    Read More
    A new ten-week class is being offered at Unity By The Bay in North Bend, beginning September 4th, based on the timely book The Sum of Us – What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together, by Heather McGhee. Vaccination and masks are required for in-person attendance.
    This class will provide a powerful exploration of inequality and the lesson that generations of Americans have failed to learn: Racism has a cost for everyone – not just for people of color. Heather McGhee's specialty is the American economy—and the mystery of why it so often fails the American public. From the financial crisis to rising student debt to collapsing public infrastructure, she found a common root problem: racism. But not just in the most obvious indignities for people of color. Racism has costs for white people, too. It is the common denominator of our most vexing public problems, the core dysfunction of our democracy and constitutive of the spiritual and moral crises that grip us all. But how did this happen? And is there a way out? In unlikely places of worship and work, McGhee finds proof of what she calls the Solidarity Dividend: gains that come when people come together across race, to accomplish what we simply can't do on our own.
    The Sum of Us is an analysis of how we arrived here: divided and self-destructing, materially rich but spiritually starved and vastly unequal. With startling empathy, this heartfelt message from a Black woman to a multiracial America leaves us with a new vision for a future in which we finally realize that life can be more than a zero-sum game.
    This class will be held on Saturday mornings beginning September 4 and runs through November 6, 10 am until 11:30am. Cost will be on a love-offering basis; all are welcome. Unity By The Bay is located at 2100 Union Street in North Bend. For more information, call 541-751-1633. Books are available online.
    Rain Will Moderate Fire Danger But Not Eliminate It

    09/23/2021

    Read More
    There is finally wetting rain in the forecast, which is great thing. The predicted rain will lower the fire danger levels for the area, but it will not eliminate the fire danger. It has been 92 days since the last significant rainfall for the south coast. One weekend of wetting rain will not replace the last three months of dry weather. Fire season is still in effect, and debris burning is still prohibited. Forecasts show more sunny weather is coming for the next few weeks after the rain. This predicted rain will make it harder for fires to get started and spread, but it will not make it impossible for a fire to happen.
    People still need to follow fire prevention restrictions, even with the rain over the weekend.
    • No Debris Burning
    • No Tracer/Incendiary Ammunition or Exploding Targets
    • No Fireworks
    • Campfires still have restrictions
    • Chainsaws still have restrictions
    • Grinding & Welding still have restrictions
    For more information on fire prevention and restrictions you can find CFPA on the web at www.coosfpa.net or on Facebook, or call the closure line at (541) 267-1789.

    Towards a 21st Century Abstraction at Coos Art Museum

    09/23/2021

    Read More
    Coos Bay, OR – October 8 through December 4, 2021, Coos Art Museum will be featuring Towards a 21st Century Abstraction a traveling exhibition highlighting the works of seven leading abstract painters from around the country. The artists include: David Bailin of Wellfeet, Massachusetts, Connie Connally of Santa Barbara, California, Brad Ellis of Dallas Texas, Jeri Ledbetter of Memphis, Tennessee, Katherine Chang Liu of Westlake Village, California, Sammy Peters of Little Rock, Arkansas, and Wosene Worke Kosrof of Berkeley, California.
    "Abstract art has been a viable form of visual creation for over a hundred years. Its meanings and manifestations have multiplied over those years, resisting or avoiding the whims of fashion to provide artists an increasingly vast range of language and meaning. Why, then, do we worry about – or, alternatively, glibly dismiss – the survival of abstract art? Is abstraction dead? Is it die-able? Does abstract art need to be defended at this point, or simply re-averred? And in either case, by whom?" Peter Frank, Art Critic and the Exhibition's Curator.
    This exhibition comes to us from the Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art and will be headed for the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts in 2022. More information on the exhibition and the participating artists can be found on the website https://www.abstraction21c.com/.
    Coos Art Museum has been a cultural focal point of Oregon's scenic Southern Coast since 1966. It occupies an historic 1936 Art Deco US Federal Building in downtown Coos Bay. The Museum offers a wide range of art activities including exhibitions, art classes and lectures. Hours are 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, Tuesday through Friday and 1:00 to 4:00 pm on Saturday. Museum admission: $5 general, $2 students, veterans and seniors, free to Museum members.
    SEA Prevails During COVID

    08/26/2021

    Read More
    When it comes to speaking up for our precious ocean wildlife and shoreline environment, not even a pandemic could stop Shoreline Education for Awareness (SEA) volunteers. Bandon's SEA organization, well into their 3rd decade, persisted through sheer dedication and ingenuity to ensure seal pups were unharmed, our beaches stayed clean, and nesting shoreline birds were protected against unknowing tourists and drones. They also created a series of on-line educational seminars. But it wasn't easy according to Mary Garrett, SEA's President. "We certainly faced a number of challenges to keep SEA energized and engaged," said Mary. "Those challenges in the long run have strengthen us and forced us to look outside our usual ways and methods to keep our mission moving forward."
    Not only has SEA been without an office for over a year while the Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge's new headquarters was being constructed, but also faced obstacles such as the COVID shutdown impacting their ability to educate visitors and share spotting scopes at Face Rock and Simpson Reef for the public. The scopes provide a close-up view of seals and sea lions hauling out at Simpson Reef--something most visitors have never seen and will never see again. Such opportunities can be life changing events for some.
    "We knew we had to stay connected, to keep our momentum moving. To counter the shutdown, we provided online Zoom seminars for the public and maintained our monthly Board meetings via Zoom. Zoom was a great lifeline for SEA, but it does not match what can be accomplished during in-person gatherings and social times together," Mary stated.
    This summer Oregon's Ocean Policy Advisory Council (OPAC) approved SEA's proposal to make Coquille Point a Marine Garden. If adopted this will preserve the ecological integrity of this important rocky habitat area, while maintaining public access and providing for educational opportunities of this intertidal habitat.
    SEA has returned to the sand this year and is doing what we do best: safely engaging with visitors and helping them understand the why's and how's of protecting the wildlife, rocky habitat and the shoreline to minimize human disturbances at Coquille Point and Face Rock, in particular. SEA also strives to help keep Oregon's beautiful beaches clean and will be co-hosting another SOLVE beach clean on Saturday, September 25th in Bandon City Park. See our website for more information. In addition to being a Friends Group to Bandon Marsh NWR, SEA also has collaborative relationships with Washed Ashore, Audubon Society, SOLVE, Oregon State Parks and St. John's Episcopal Church. We hope for new and unique opportunities for volunteers this coming year and look for ideas/recommendations from our membership.
    If you'd like to learn more about SEA, its volunteer opportunities and projects or other fun educational activities such as the Nurdle Patrol, or SEA's upcoming educational seminar series, go to www.sea-edu.org or call the SEA phone #541-313-6751.
    Coquille Indian Tribe Offers Grants

    09/02/2021

    Read More
    Contributed By: The Coquille Indian Tribe
    NORTH BEND – After focusing on pandemic-related projects in 2021, the Coquille Tribal Community Fund will return to supporting a broad range of community programs in 2022.
    "We felt the need to assist the local COVID-19 response last time," said tribal Chairman Brenda Meade. "In our new grant cycle, we'll still consider COVID-related projects, but we also want to serve a variety of community needs."
    The tribe shared $266,107 with more than 60 community organizations and projects in southwestern Oregon in 2021. All the 2021 grants targeted pandemic-related expenses of local and regional organizations.
    The grant recipients included food pantries, homeless programs, museums, community centers, veterans groups, services for children and even a couple of music programs.
    "It's a huge privilege to be able to help so many outstanding organizations and projects," Meade said.
    The biggest share of the money, about $97,000, went to Coos County organizations. Lane County groups received about $52,000, Jackson County $44,000, Douglas County $33,000, and Curry County $33,000.
    The five counties make up the Coquille Tribe's congressionally designated service area, based on significant populations of tribal members living in each county. The grants are funded by a share of annual revenue from The Mill Casino-Hotel & RV Park in North Bend.
    The tribal fund is one of southwestern Oregon's leading sources of community grants, distributing more than $7 million over the past two decades.
    The fund will accept letters of inquiry for its upcoming grant cycle during September and October from organizations in all five counties. As in years past, the 2022 grants will focus on seven categories: education, public safety, arts and culture, environment, historic preservation, health and gaming addiction.
    "We give big grants and little ones," said Jackie Chambers, the fund's administrator. "We encourage all kinds of projects and programs to apply."
    Letters of inquiry for the 2022 grants are due Oct. 31. Organizations whose letters are accepted will be invited to submit formal applications by Nov. 30. Grants will be announced in late February or early March.
    For more information, visit the tribal fund website at www.coquilletribalfund.org, or contact Chambers at jackiechambers@coquilletribe.org or (541) 756-0904, ext. 1201.
    Michael Ferguson: Landscape Journey 1992-2019 at Coos Art Museum

    Coos Bay, OR – October 8 through December 4, 2021, Coos Art Museum will be featuring Michael Ferguson: Landscape Journey 1992-2019. This solo exhibition presents works from three decades of landscape art by Tacoma, Washington artist Michael Ferguson. "As a northwest native, it's no surprise that I am influenced constantly by our rich and varied landscape…. My painting approach is basically representational with some generous flexibility at times. A fractured multi-colorist approach can turn in to a more controlled realism as needed." A free reception for the exhibition will take place Friday October 8 from 5 to 7 pm.
    Ferguson is graduate of the Burnley School of Art in Seattle, Washington and has had solo exhibitions at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle as well as the North Central Washington Museum in Wenatchee, Washington. He has also had solo exhibitions at galleries in Tacoma, Portland, and Seattle. Notable group exhibitions in which he participated were held at the Tacoma Art Museum, The Missoula Museum of the Art and at Coos Art Museum. His works are in many public and private collections throughout the Northwest.

    NYC Conversation – Jan and Ken Ayers at Coos Art Museum

    09/23/2021

    Coos Bay, OR – October 8 through December 4, 2021, Coos Art Museum will be featuring NYC Conversation a two-person exhibition of works by Ken and Jan Ayers of Bandon, Oregon. A free reception for the exhibition will take place Friday October 8 from 5 to 7 pm.
    The "NEW YORK CITY CONVERSATION began in August 1975 when Jan and Ken began working together answering phones at Barnes & Noble Bookstore at the corner of 18th and Fifth Avenue. Various aesthetic concerns expressed in this show were nurtured by their shared experience of the multidimensional, experimental art, music and performance scenes flourishing in downtown New York City at that time. Ken had arrived in the city in late January returning from several months traveling overland through India and Nepal. Jan had returned after a summer workshop session at Connecticut College featuring dance and experimental theater studying with Andre Gregory, Lee Breuer of Mabou Mines and choreographer Mary Overlie. Ken eventually moved to San Francisco and Jan kept New York as home base. They resumed their conversation in early 2011 and it continues to this day. The show involves bronze sculpture, hemp-wrapped bamboo and beaver sticks, photographs and words.

    Pacific Power grant funds lab equipment at Southwestern

    08/12/2021

    Read More
    COOS BAY, OR – Pacific Power Foundation has awarded a $5,000 grant to Southwestern Oregon Community College Foundation to help purchase high-quality microscopes in the new state-of-the-art science labs in Umpqua Hall.
    SWOCC Foundation added an additional $20,000 to the Science Team Energizes Micro-Biology project to purchase 24 Leica compound microscopes for students and a high-tech teaching microscope for faculty.
    "With a new lab, it's important to have excellent equipment, and Leica is top of the line," Biology Professor Dr. Bob Fields said. "I am excited for our students to use these excellent microscopes and integrate the newest technology in teaching."
    The majority of SWOCC's students take science classes, whether they are majoring in science fields or pursuing general associates degrees. For students starting on their pathways to medicine, dentistry, marine biology, and a variety of science fields, Umpqua Hall's new high-quality labs and specialized microscopes are essential.
    "A project like this is of particular interest to Pacific Power, in part because Pacific Power's CEO is very supportive of STEM education and science-based education," said Sam Carter, the company's regional business manager. "We are looking forward to seeing students returning to college and using these microscopes in the fall."
    The other important aspect is this project is the science labs now have enough microscopes for two labs. It ensures every student in a class has access to a microscope of their own. Having enough equipment for individual use gives students more time to explore the microscopic world and develop their skills. Individual scopes also will help the college comply with safety guidelines during the COVID pandemic and protect students' health. It also means instructors no longer will have scramble to move microscopes from room to room, between classes.
    Instructors are pleased with the teaching scope, too. It features a digital screen, allowing an instructor to enlarge and visually isolate specimens to help students better understand what they are looking for and the fundamentals of identification.
    "I can show in bigger and greater detail, "here's what you're looking for," Fields said. "Or, if a student finds something very interesting, particularly if we're doing pond or water work, then I can showcase what they've found so other students can look."
    Having the ability to capture digital images also gives instructors the ability to share more with students in online classes and adapt lessons.
    Purchasing equipment is the final step in the development Umpqua Hall, a $24 million project funded almost entirely by grants and community donations. Designed to inspire tomorrow's scientists, engineers, and health care professionals, Southwestern's new science, nursing and paramedicine labs open Monday, Sept. 13, with the start of fall term.
    The college has scheduled an open house for the community to tour the building and talk with faculty from 2-6 p.m., on Friday, Sept. 24.

    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.
