    Free Admission on September 21, 2019 with a downloadable Museum Day ticket
    Charleston, September 17, 2019 — The Charleston Marine Life Center will open its doors free of charge to all Museum Day ticket holders on Saturday September 21, 2019 as part of Smithsonian magazine's 15th annual Museum Day, a national celebration of curiosity in which participating museums emulate the free admission policy at the Smithsonian Institution's Washington D.C.-based museums.
    Museum Day represents a nationwide commitment to access, equity and inclusion. Over 450,000 tickets were downloaded for last year's event, and Museum Day 2019 is expected to attract more museum goers than ever before.
    This year, Museum Day will celebrate the Smithsonian Year of Music, an institution-wide initiative celebrating the Smithsonian's vast musical collections and resources through 365 days of music-related programming. Music is not only a reflection of human creativity and innovation, but also a key method of communication and cross-cultural exchange and understanding. The Smithsonian Year of Music crosses disciplines, bringing together music-related resources in art, history, culture, science and education. Animals use a variety of sounds to communicate as well. At the CMLC, listen to whale songs and to your own attempts to mimic their calls. See how well you did by comparing spectrograms (visual representations of sound) of the whales and yourself.
    The University of Oregon's Charleston Marine Life Center engages visitors of all ages in an exploration of the diversity of marine life found off Oregon—from the shore to the deep sea.
    Museum Day tickets will be available for download at beginning August 15. Visitors who present a Museum Day ticket will gain free entrance for two at participating venues on September 21, 2019. One ticket is permitted per email address. A list of participating museums, which will be continually updated, can be found at

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.
