    Logos Players Presents "Proof"


    Read More
    Logos Players presents Pulitzer-prize winning play "Proof", opening Friday, March 29 at 7 pm. The show will be held on the Gloria Dei Lutheran Church stage at 1290 Thompson Road in Coos Bay. The show will run two weekends on Friday and Saturday nights at 7 pm, and Sunday matinees at 2 pm. There is complimentary childcare available in the nursery during every performance compliments of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church. All seats are $10; tickets are available online or by calling 541-267-2347 between 9–2pm.
    On the surface, "Proof" is a play about a mathematical proof and the attempt to prove its author's identity. But the real story is the personal interaction of the four characters in the show; they are authentic and relatable. "Proof" deals with depression, grief, loss, love, and humor. The witty and sometimes sarcastic humor woven throughout this dramedy helps make the show compelling and engaging, while not distracting from the real emotions felt by the characters. "Proof" is a play that will make you think, and you will be discussing it with your friends for days afterwards.
    Since its inception in 2009, Logos Players has donated proceeds from its productions to local non-profit organizations. Proceeds from "Proof" will support South Coast Family Harbor. South Coast Family Harbor (SCFH) is a child abuse and neglect prevention program. They work with at-risk families to strengthen, support and educate them so that their families can stay intact and not enter foster care. SCFH has a 98.5% success rate of keeping families together. The organization depends on fundraising and grants to continue serving families.  All services are available at no cost to the families. The organization provides free weekly respite, parenting classes and home visiting. Currently, the greatest areas of need are in the food pantry and baby closet – specifically baby hygiene items (shampoo, bath soap, etc.). Funds raised from "Proof" will be used for these services; donations for the food pantry and baby closet will be gladly accepted at every showing of "Proof".

    Teams of top-flight spellers are busy as bees signing up to compete in the Coos Bay Public Library Foundation's seventh annual Adult Spelling Bee fundraiser. The event will be held at Black Market Gourmet, 495 Central Avenue, Coos Bay, on Friday, April 12th starting at 7 p.m.
    The fee to register a team of two to three spellers is $75. Team registration forms can be found online at here, and at the Coos Bay Public Library. The team registration fee includes a limited edition t-shirt for each team member, a dessert buffet and a chance to earn bragging rights. Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams. The deadline for team registration is March 29th.
    Spectator tickets are on sale now at the Coos Bay Public Library, Art Connection, Black Market Gourmet or from Library Foundation members. Each $25 spectator ticket includes a scrumptious dessert buffet, coffee and no-host bar and plenty of merriment, according to Foundation President Curt Benward. "It's amazing to see these teams tackle words I've never even heard before—and spell them correctly. And it's really a lot of fun." Teams that miss a word can buy their way back into the competition one time for amounts that vary depending on the round. "Everybody deserves a second chance," explains event moderator, Bob More. "And, besides, we can help the library with the money."
    Friends, families and those who just want to see how they measure up are encouraged to join the fun by cheering on their favorite team, joining the 50/50 raffle or purchasing raffle tickets for various bee-themed gift baskets. In between rounds, audience challenges for prizes and prestige will add to the festivities. For more information call 541-269-1101.

    The concept of an unbook club has been around for several years. Instead of meeting to discuss the same book, each member will instead offer a review of a book he or she has recently read. This allows readers to hear about several books they might be interested in reading. The unbook club also frees members from having to finish an assigned book by a deadline.
    Attendees of North Bend Public Library's UnBook Club will be emailed a list of the book titles that were discussed.

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.
