    Free Contra Dance at Sixes Grange

    04/18/2019

    Read More
    It's been a long, wet winter! There is nothing like contra dancing to the music of The Outstanding Open Band to produce endorphins and smiles! Once again, the South Coast Folk Society is bringing contra dance to Curry County, funded by the Curry Cultural Coalition and the Oregon Cultural Trust. Dances are held at the Sixes Grange, Saturday nights at 7 pm. The Curry Contra Dances are scheduled for June 15, August 3 and October 19.
    All dances are free public events for couples, singles and families. Never mind if you don't come with a partner: others without partners are looking for someone to dance with. Even if you come as a couple, the caller will encourage partners exchanging all through the night if they like. Also, don't worry if you don't have loads of experience: the caller patiently teaches each dance before it gets underway.
    Side of the Tide Morris Dancers will provide entertainment while the contra dancers catch their breath. Some folks come just to listen and tap their feet to music of The Outstanding Open Band which can comprise up to fourteen South Coast musicians. The caller in April will be Stacy Rose, in June it will be Karen Olsen, in August Woody Lane and in October Paul Poresky.
    Take a break from your cell phone and TV, and bring the whole family to enjoy an old fashioned community evening with family, friends and neighbors! For information call Kristi at (541) 332-9295 or Jo at (541) 348-2174.

    Film NOIR Series

    07/18/2019

    Read More
    The FILM NOIR series at Coos Bay Public Library continues on Sunday, July 21st at 4:00. This month's feature is Sweet Smell of Success, Alexander Mackendrick's 1957 cynical look at underbelly of New York City's glamorous nightlife.
    New York City newspaper writer J.J. Hunsecker (Burt Lancaster) holds considerable sway over public opinion with his Broadway column, but one thing that he can't control is his younger sister, Susan (Susan Harrison), who is in a relationship with aspiring jazz guitarist Steve Dallas (Marty Milner). Hunsecker strongly disproves of the romance and recruits publicist Sidney Falco (Tony Curtis) to find a way to split the couple, no matter how ruthless the method.
    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.

    Drumming Circle At Unity By The Bay

    Read More
    The Unity By The Bay Drumming Circle meets on the first Monday and third Wednesdays at 6:30pm. All are welcome. If you don't own a drum, the group has a few available.
    Research indicates that drumming accelerates physical healing and boosts the immune system. In addition, specific studies conducted by professionals in the fields of music therapy and mental health show us that drumming reduces tension, anxiety and stress. Drumming is also a great workout for your brain and actually can make you smarter because when you drum you access your entire brain. Research shows that the physical transmission of rhythmic energy to the brain actually synchronizes the left and right hemispheres
    Unity By The Bay is located at 2100 Union Street, North Bend.

    Discover an Important Slice of Media History at the Marshfield Sun Printing Museum This Summer

    05/30/2019

    Read More
    Why do we call news media "the press"? Why do we call capital letters "upper case" and the other letters "lower case"? Why do we call it "typing"?
    Find the answer to these and much more any Tuesday through Saturday summer afternoon when you visit The Marshfield Sun Printing Museum on Coos Bay's historic waterfront. New this year is timeline information about all the past newspapers in the Coos Bay Area.
    The Sun's original—and now historic—printing presses and other fascinating equipment can be viewed up close as skilled volunteers interpret and demonstrate how they work. Printing Museum volunteers also answer questions about the Museum's exhibits on printing and office technology.
    Combine a visit to the Marshfield Sun with a visit to the nearby Coos History Museum for a jam-packed afternoon of interesting local history.
    The Marshfield Sun Printing Museum is a unique printing museum located in that building at the north end of Front Street on Coos Bay's historic waterfront. The unusually shaped building was built as the home for the Marshfield Sun newspaper and print shop in 1911. The Marshfield Sun was a working newspaper office and print shop from 1891 to 1944—and is today essentially as it was left in 1944, with additional exhibits upstairs and on the walls.
    The Marshfield Sun Printing Museum's regular summer hours begin the day after Memorial Day and go through Labor Day: 1pm – 4pm Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is free.

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.
