Urban Monroes

Fashioned from the heart of tradition and infused with adrenaline, the Urban Monroes’ contemporary bluegrass style is an outgrowth of the combined skills of some of the Pacific Northwest’s finest talent. That talent will be on display in Lincoln City on Saturday, Aug. 2, inside the Lincoln City Cultural Center auditorium. Showtime is 7 pm.

As individuals the Urban Monroes have earned bluegrass instrument championships, a National Endowment for the Arts award and songwriting accolades. They have been featured on the Emmy award winning PBS series “Art Beat” and their musical experiences have taken them around the world. As a band they have excited audiences from some of bluegrass’ biggest venues with a fully charged stage presence and an intricate delivery.

The Urban Monroes last performed at the LCCC in 2012, and enjoyed a sold-out house and a standing ovation. To reserve your seat, $11 in advance, call 541-994-9994 or drop by the cultural center, 540 NE Hwy. 101. The Information Center sells concert tickets from 10 am to 5 pm every day except Tuesday. They accept major credit cards, checks and cash.

Urban Monroes take their name from “the Father of Bluegrass,” Bill Monroe. In the late 1930s, Monroe developed a style of music that drew upon his entire musical experience. The Kentuckian Monroe and his Blue Grass Boys established what became to be known as bluegrass, and though the same influences that molded that sound would also give birth to both modern country and rock music, Monroe’s style was uniquely his own. All the founders of bluegrass were innovators. Each band’s sound was original in its own way, but each stayed true to the framework established in the genre’s infancy. This is what the Urban Monroes are attempting to do as well.

“Our goal is to create new music within that framework. We are taking what could be considered the language and vocabulary of bluegrass and telling our own story with it rather than reciting by rote all that has been said before. Put more simply, it could be said that the band is putting a new spin on traditional material and a traditional spin on new material,” said one of the band members.

The Lincoln City Cultural Center is a non-profit center for community and creativity, inside the historic Delake School building, at the corner of NE Sixth St. and Hwy. 101. The center, which is also home to the official Lincoln City Visitor Information Center, is open from 10 am to 5 pm every day except Tuesday. For details, head to HYPERLINK “http://www.lincolncity-culturalcenter.org” http://www.lincolncity-culturalcenter.org, or call 541-994-9994.



A swashbuckling new play is headed to the Lincoln City Cultural Center. It’s “Blackbeard the Pirate,” and the directors are looking for young actors to fill up to 60 roles in this Missoula Children’s Theatre production. Auditions are set for 10 am Monday, Aug. 4, and participation is free – yes, free – for all kids attending school in north Lincoln County. Visiting children are welcome, as well, for a small fee.
Auditions, which are open to kids entering first through 12th grades, will be held in the auditorium at the LCCC, 540 NE Hwy. 101. All those auditioning should arrive at 10 am sharp and plan to stay until noon. Some of the cast members will be asked to stay for a rehearsal immediately following the audition.
Among the 60+ roles to be cast are Blackbeard and his crew of bearded Pirates, Sailors of the High Seas, cranky Crabs and Crocodiles, magical Mermaids and Seaweed Creatures, Parrots and even a group of Beach Bums. No advance preparation or theatrical experience is necessary. Assistant directors will also be cast to aid in rehearsals throughout the week, and to take on essential backstage responsibilities.

“This is our second Missoula Children’s Theatre production of the summer, which we added to better accommodate all our local kids, and their summer schedules. If your little thespians couldn’t audition for ‘Pinocchio’ in June, bring them out for ‘Blackbeard’,” said LCCC executive director Niki Price. “But the timeline is very tight, so auditions begin at 10 am sharp and those who are late may not be allowed to participate. The center doors will be open by 9:30 am, so that parents and guardians have time to fill out the necessary forms.”
Thanks to local sponsors, participation is absolutely free for all children who attend school in Lincoln City or Neskowin. Other aspiring performers (children and teenagers who attend school outside of the north Lincoln County area) are welcome to participate for a $50 registration fee, which covers all rehearsals and performances. All those children who are cast must agree to attend rehearsals faithfully throughout the week, and to perform in two shows on Saturday.
The directors will also offer three optional 45-minute theatre education workshops, outside of required rehearsal time, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. They will address topics such as “Acting 1-2-3,” “Improv” and “Let’s Make-up.” Sign-up sheets will be available after the audition. Parents and guardians can sign up for the workshops right after auditions on Aug. 4.
After rehearsing for just one week, the cast will perform the musical “Blackbeard the Pirate” twice, at 3 pm and 7 pm on Saturday, Aug. 9, in the auditorium at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. Tickets are $10 reserved (A Section), $5 general (B Section), and free for kids 12 and under with a paid adult. For tickets or further information, call the center at 541-994-9994.

This is the 9th summer that the LCCC will host a touring production from the Missoula Children’s Theatre, based in Missoula, Mont. These shows come complete with costumes, scenery, props and makeup, and are led by well-trained, dynamic directors from around the country.
Last year, 94 children auditioned for the 60 parts available for “The Wizard of Oz,” and many young people were turned away. To help make this performance experience possible for more local children, the LCCC has expanded its participation in MCT, and offered two productions in 2014.
Participation will stay free for local kids, thanks to the board of the Lincoln City Cultural Center and generous local sponsors. At this writing, that list includes the Behrens Foundation, the Lincoln City Kiwanis Club, the Ankeny Family, RQ Mills Ace Hardware, Brian and Liz Fackler, and North Lincoln Sanitary Service. Donations and sponsorships are still being accepts, with all excess funds saved for the MCT deposits in 2015.
To contribute to these valuable experiences for local youth, call the LCCC at 541-994-9994. Visa, Mastercard and American Express payments can be taken over the phone. Or, send your check to LCCC/Missoula Children’s Theatre Fund, PO Box 752, Lincoln City, OR 97367.

Sandcastle 1-Credit Angie Wright copy

 Hit the beach on Saturday, August 9th at the 2014 Taft Beach Sandcastle Contest sponsored by the Bay Area Merchants Association.  This amateur competition runs from 1p.m. to 5p.m. and is open to participants of all ages and skill levels.

Competition categories include groups, pairs, individuals (over 12 years old) and kids (12 years old and under).  Entry location on the beach will be determined by category. Specialized categories such as Best Dog, Best Mermaid, Best Cat, Best Sandcastle and others will also be available. Prizes in the form of cash awards valued at over $1,000 will be given for category winners, and the kids category will have 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners with each taking home a “Beach Bucket Surprise.”  Judging will take place at 5p.m., with winners announced shortly thereafter.  Meanwhile, visitors can enjoy music by local artist Brett Lucich, who will be performing throughout the contest on the dock.

Registration begins at 1p.m. on the dock just outside of Mo’s Restaurant in the Historic Taft District with competition following.  All participants must register at the sign up table on the day of the event before beginning. There is a fee of one can or more of food per entrant, which will be donated to the Lincoln City Food Pantry.  Entries must be built using only sand, water, shells and other natural beach material found that day. Hand tools and forms of any sort may be used in the construction process but may not support the structure. Power tools are not allowed. This is an amateur competition; professional sand artists are disqualified from winning.

“I love the event. It is a fun and relaxing time,” says Mary Ann McGill, Manager at the Looking Glass Inn and event coordinator. “A little sand in your toes takes away your woes.”

“The Taft Beach Sandcastle Contest is a great event in that it is relaxed and casual. It is amazing to see what the contestants come up with! Even if you’re not the most artistic builder, it’s a great family and friends bonding experience,” says Eric Johnson, Public Relations Coordinator for the Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau. “This is truly a unique event not to be missed!”

Oregon Coast Aquarium Bites into Shark Week Myths with Facts and Fun Aug 9th and 10th



Shark Week celebrations at the Oregon Coast Aquarium are markedly different from the better known television event. The myth of a living modern megalodon, and disproportionate representation of sharks biting humans will be noticeably absent. The facts presented, however, will be no less thrilling. The Aquarium’s Shark Conservation Weekend will separate fact from fiction to unveil these fascinating predators, without the bloody curtain of Hollywood myths, on August 9 and 10.

The Aquarium will set a stage to promote understanding of these keystone predators with SCUBA diver presentations in the shark-infested Open Sea exhibit and the education program, “The Flying Great White Sharks of South Africa,” with Aquarium Science Program Director Chris Spaulding from the Oregon Coast Community College .

The Aquarium’s staff artist, Michael Cole, will work on a painting of a tiger shark while he chats with guests about how he brings these two-dimensional representations of marine animals to life. Free posters of Cole’s “Sharks of Oregon” painting will be available for visitors to take home, supplies are limited.

Activities for visitors of all ages will circle throughout the Aquarium promoting understanding of sharks. Kids under 10 will be able to learn through play about the unique adaptions of Oregon shark species in the Sea & Me exhibit and during the Saturday and Sunday morning Shark Shenanigans education program – complete with an opportunity to size up a life-sized representation of a great white shark.

Shark enthusiasts that cannot get enough of these incredible animals during regular Aquarium hours may doze off just inches from mighty sevengill, leopard, soupfin and other sharks during one of two shark-themed sleepover programs on Saturday, July 27 to Sunday, July 28 and Saturday, August 9 to Sunday August 10. Space is limited and reservations must be made at least one week in advance. Details and reservations for Sleep with Sharks are available at aquarium.org.

Shark Conservation Weekend activities, with the exception of Sleepovers, are included with Aquarium admission and will take place from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. For a schedule of events and more information visit aquarium.org or call (541) 867-FISH.

Those unable to visit the Aquarium can still bite into Shark Conservation Weekend on the Oceanscape Network, which will feature a flurry of articles, videos and downloadable guides about Oregon ’s sharks.

The Oregon Coast Aquarium is dedicated to the highest quality aquatic and marine science programs for recreation and education so that the public better understands, cherishes, and conserves the world’s natural marine and coastal resources. An accredited Association of Zoos & Aquariums institution, this 501(c)3 non-profit organization is ranked as one of the top 10 aquariums in the U.S. Visit us at 2820 S.E.

59th Annual Indian-Style Salmon Bake at Depoe Bay Saturday Sept. 20, 2014
Salmon fillets cooking on alder stakesFor the 59th consecutive year, Depoe Bay, Oregon will host the annual Indian-Style Salmon Bake on Saturday, September 20, from 10 am to 5 pm.


The Salmon Bake is the Oregon coast’s signature salmon celebration.


The salmon is cooked in a traditional technique used for generations by native coastal tribes. Preparations begin months before the feast, as volunteers head to the woods to cut 350 six foot long stakes of alder wood.


Before sunrise on the morning of the event, volunteers ignite a huge 80-foot fire line with six cords of fir and three cords of alder. Thousands of pounds of salmon fillets are positioned on the alder wood stakes and held in place with cedar strips. The alder stakes are then positioned diagonally over the smoldering fire line, imparting rich flavors to the salmon as they bake to perfection.


Each salmon is cooked about 20 minutes on each side before being sent off to be served in 8-ounce steaks together with coleslaw, garlic bread and a drink. Visitors enjoy their meals sitting at tables in the sun or under a tent, listening to Native American music and watching performances by native tribal dancers.


Raffle tickets will be on sale at the Salmon Bake for “Discover Depoe Bay” packages, which include lodging, dining, fishing and whale watching trips.


You can experience this delicious tradition at the Depoe Bay City Park, located at the south end of the town’s picturesque harbor. Free shuttles will take visitors to and from the park, as well as from the park to downtown shops along the ocean front. Many Depoe Bay merchants offer special discounts for the Salmon Bake event.


Admission to the Indian Style Salmon Bake is free. Advance sale meal tickets are offered at a discount price of $20. Meal tickets will be $24 at the gate on the day of the event. After prices are announced, advance ticket sales will be available from several Depoe Bay locations including: Depoe Bay Chamber of Commerce, 223 SW Highway 101, Suite B; Pacific Brass & Copper Works, 20 Bay St.; What Not Shop, 411 South Highway 101, The Spouting Horn Restaurant, Highway 101 at the bridge; Fuddy Duddy Fudge, 112 North Highway 101; Depoe Bay Liquor Store, 531 N. Highway 101, and in Lincoln Beach the Big Mountain Coffee Company, 3940 N. Highway 101.


For those unable to attend the event, meal deliveries are available from Salishan to Otter Rock for orders placed in advance.


Depoe Bay enjoys nearly year-round whale watching and has become known as “Oregon’s Whale Watching Capitol”. The long seawall along the town center offers exciting views of gray whales feeding just off the rocks during this time of year. Charter boats will take visitors to see these majestic giants up close along the scenic coastline.


The Salmon Bake is a non-profit event sponsored by the Depoe Bay Chamber of Commerce, local businesses and residents. Proceeds help fund Chamber activities as well as town events and improvement projects.

Drum Circle on new schedule

The Newport Community Drum Circle will be moving to its regular twice monthly “summer” schedule on Tuesday [May 6] and meeting every first and third Tuesday evening from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. through September.

The family friendly free drum circle meets year round in the glass enclosed gazebo at the City’s Don Davis Park at the west end of Olive Street across the street from the Newport Performing Arts Center. The drum circle will celebrate its seventh birthday this summer. 

All ages are welcome and no prior musical training or experience is required. There are always extra drums or other percussion instruments on hand to borrow. Seating is at the installed circular wooden benches in the gazebo, but organizers suggest bringing a stool or small folding chair during the summer when the seats fill up quickly.

Drum circle coordinator Chandler Davis said the sessions usually attract two to three dozen people this time of year (up to about 50). Participants range in age from toddler to nonagenarian, and represent nearly every social, ethnic, and economic category. The drum circle’s email newsletter has more than 600 subscribers and during the season the drum circle attracts casual visitors and visiting drummers from all over the world.

“The drum circle allows people without musical training an opportunity to participate in music rather than just be spectators, and it builds a sense of community by breaking down artificial barriers,” Davis said. “There are experienced drummers, as well, but the emphasis is always on cooperation and listening rather than musical perfection; our motto is: ‘In life and in music, everyone has something to contribute to the groove.’”

Davis facilitates the drumming and helps the drummers create group improvisations based on traditional song rhythms from West Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and other cultures. Solo improvising, freeform drumming, and “grandstanding” are discouraged. Alcohol, smoking, and other drug use is prohibited by both drum circle rules and city ordinances.

For more information contact Davis at chandler@chandlerdavis.com or 541-272-4615.

YAAP Presents Lightroom and Critiquing and Judging Programs starting Jan 6th (first Monday of the month program)

Catch Your Dinner in Lincoln City from April threw September 2014

 Stop by Siletz Bay and catch your own dinner.  From April through September 2014 the Lincoln City Visitor & Convention Bureau is offering free crabbing and clamming clinics led by local expert Bill Lackner.

The Siletz Bay at the south edge of Lincoln City is a prime spot for crabbing and clamming. The clinics provide participants with information and hands-on experience regarding regulations, harvesting methods, identification, and cleaning and cooking techniques.

The clamming clinics begin with a presentation at the Driftwood Public Library, followed by a hands-on group clam digging excursion during low tide.  Crabbing clinics take place from the shore of the bay and each participant is allowed to crab with up to three devices.

These free clinics are open to everyone and no registration is required.  “We thank the Driftwood Library and the City of Lincoln City for giving us the opportunity to share the wonderful bounty that Siletz Bay has to offer,” said Bill Lackner, local clamming and crabbing expert and clinic instructor.

Each participant over the age of 14 is required to have a shellfish license, which are available at several locations throughout Lincoln City .  Participants may bring their own harvesting tools or may purchase them on-site the day of the clinic.

 Special clinics may be arranged for large groups, which can be set up through the Visitor & Convention Bureau.

 For further information, contact the Lincoln City Visitor & Convention Bureau at 800-452-2151 or visithttp://www.oregoncoast.org/crabbing-and-clamming-clinics.
