Free Astrology Workshopshoroscope
This Fall at the Newport 60+ Activity Center

Robert McBride returns with two new dates for his “Discovering Who You Are” astrology workshops. (You need attend only once.)

                       Astrology Workshops Schedule:
Saturday, October 25th, 2:00pm – 4:00pm
Thursday, November 6th, 2:00pm – 4:00pm

Robert creates a personalized birth chart and a simple 5-point analogy of your authentic self. Therefore you will need to register at least one week in advance, providing the following information: name; date and time of birth; and place of birth.

About 30 years ago Robert became excited about astrology after reading the “Sagittarius Child” section of Linda Goodman’s book Sun Signs. “It was as though she had followed me through my childhood and wrote about me!” he says. He had his own chart done by a professional astrologer, but found it difficult to remember the explanations a few months later. He wanted to figure out a way to make the birth chart easy to grasp from the start. After many years of study and experiences, Robert put together a user-friendly system for understanding the basics of this helpful “science.”

His workshop offers a short history of astrology, the nuts and bolts of the birth chart design, and a simple 5-point explanation of your unique self. The chart and handouts are yours to keep, a useful reference for the rest of your life.

The workshops will be held in the education room at the 60+ Center, located at 20 SE 2nd Street in Newport. For more information call 541-265-9617.

A Matter of Balance:
Managing Concerns About Falls

Beginning Thursday, October 23rd, the Newport 60+ Activity Center will be offering a free 8-week wellness program designed specifically to help older adults find new levels of confidence as they go about their daily lives.

Are you missing out? Have you lost opportunities to spend time with family and friends because of concerns about falling? Do you spend less time enjoying your favorite activities because you fear you might fall? If so, A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls can help you get back to the people and pastimes you care about.

It only makes sense to be concerned about falling, but letting the fear of falling hold you back from active living is even more dangerous. Limiting your activities leads to increased physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater, and increased isolation and depression can result from limiting interactions with your family and friends. The strategies taught in A Matter of Balance will improve your quality of life and help you stay independent!

If you are an older adult who is worried about the risk of falling, A Matter of Balance will help you reduce your fear and increase your activity levels. You will learn how to change your environment to reduce fall risk factors, to set realistic goals to increase your activity, and learn simple exercises to increase your strength and balance.

This program will be held in the downstairs Education Room at the 60+ Center, located at 20 SE 2nd Street in Newport. For more information or to sign-up, call 541-265-9617.

drum circleDrum Circle on winter schedule

The Newport Community Drum Circle will resume its regular monthly winter schedule this month, meeting every second Saturday afternoon from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., beginning October 11, in the glass enclosed gazebo at Don Davis Park at the west end of Olive Street across from the Newport Performing Arts Center. It meets twice monthly during the summer months.

The year round rhythm jams at the park, now in their seventh year, are always free,  family friendly, and drug, alcohol, and smoke free, according the Drum Circle facilitator Chandler Davis. All ages are welcome, no musical experience is necessary and extra drums or other instruments are available for people who don’t have their own.

Davis, a retired behavioral health counselor, said the drum circles offer “a way for anyone to experience the fun and the well-documented therapeutic benefits of playing music together. The universal language of music also helps to break down artificial barriers, encourage diversity, foster cooperation, and build community.”

The winter hours continue through April and Davis said the unheated gazebo stays comfortable even on the coldest days once the drummers get moving.

Davis and other drum circle members also perform regularly and conduct outreach drum circles for organizations and community events throughout the year. For more information, contact Davis at chandler@chandlerdavis.com or 541-272-4615

Eugenia Choi

Newport Symphony Concert Features Eugenia Choi

The Newport Symphony Orchestra invites music lovers of all ages to another weekend of amazing, high-energy performances on November 8 and 9. Featuring Cuban and gypsy-themed music, this exciting weekend will bring a bright blast of warm and colorful music to the Oregon Coast.

For these performances, the Newport Symphony Orchestra welcomes internationally-acclaimed guest soloist Eugenia Choi on the violin. Born in Canada of Korean heritage, Choi trained and received a doctorate in music from the Julliard School in New York City. In addition to serving on the faculty of universities in Canada and the USA, Choi maintains a busy schedule as a much-sought-after soloist for orchestras in Europe, Asia, and the Americas, as well as for radio and television broadcasts.

For her violin solo with the Newport Symphony Orchestra, Choi will play the Poème Op. 25 by French composer Ernest Chausson and Tzigane by Maurice Ravel. “Tzigane” is a European word for “gypsy.”

The concerts, conducted by the NSO’s beloved music director Adam Flatt, will open with the “Cuban Overture” by George Gershwin. This creative and melodic piece was inspired by a trip the composer took to Cuba, and features exciting Latin percussion. Continuing the theme, the NSO will play a piece by Cuban composer and virtuoso pianist Ernesto Lacuona, a work infused with Cuban and Afro-Cuban rhythms. The concert will conclude on a merry and playful note with a suite of dances by Manuel de Falla.

Presented at the Performing Arts Center, the Saturday evening concert, November 8, will begin at 7:30 p.m., preceded by a pre-concert talk by the conductor at 6:45 p.m. The matinee on the following Sunday, November 9, will begin at 2:00 p.m. These concerts are presented thanks to generous sponsorship from the Nye Beach Merchants’ Association. Tickets are available at the Performing Arts Center box office, by phone at (541) 265-ARTS, and at NewportSymphony.org. For more than 25 years, the Newport Symphony Orchestra has been bringing the world’s greatest music to audiences on the Oregon Coast. This concert is the second of its 2014–15 season.



Treasure Hunters Get Ready for Finders Keepers


This marks the 16th year of the promotion, which runs from October 18, 2014 through Memorial Day 2015.  2,015 official numbered glass floats will be carefully hidden daily along the 7-½ miles of beach in Lincoln City , from Roads End on the north side of town to Cutler City on the south end.  Floats can be found above the tide line and below the beach embankment, and will always be hidden during daylight hours.  If you find a float, you get to keep it!

Among the floats being dropped on opening weekend, beginning October 18th is an extra large one with a prize attached. This jumbo sized float will have a note with instructions on how to redeem your prize. One lucky treasure hunter will win a weekend getaway to Lincoln City complete with hotel accommodations, restaurant gift certificates, and the opportunity to blow your own custom float at the Jennifer Sears Glass Art Studio.

As if daily float drops weren’t enough, keep an eye out for special glass art drops throughout the next several months, which will boost the total glass float count for this year to over 3,000.  These special drops will include a combination of antique Japanese glass floats, sand dollars, crabs and starfish.  For a schedule of upcoming drops visithttp://www.oregoncoast.org/finders-keepers/special-glass-art-drops.

“Visitors are very excited about Finders Keepers this fall and so are we,” says Scott Humpert, Public Relations Coordinator for the Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau. “Our social media channels have been buzzing with activity. People can’t wait to start hunting for the glass floats. The best part of this promotion, thanks to social media avenues like Facebook and Twitter, is our visitors are sharing their found treasures online. It’s a special moment for them and they want to share that with others. We are proud to be a part of creating those memories.”

If you happen to find one of these glass treasures on the beach, make sure to share your photos of them via Facebook atwww.facebook.com/LincolnCityOregon or on Twitter using the tag @lcvcb and #FindersKeepers.  The official handcrafted Finders Keepers glass floats will be signed and numbered, and when they are found, they become collector’s items.  Bring your discovered treasure to the Visitors’ Center at 540 NE Hwy 101 in Lincoln City to receive your certificate of authenticity and a biographical sketch of the artist who created the float.  If you have limited mobility or are unable to walk on the beach due to disability, stop by and fill out an entry form a chance to win a glass float.

Finders Keepers is an annual promotion, which began in 1999, when a local artist first thought of glass floats as an intriguing way to launch the new millennium. Lincoln City sponsored the project, hosting the inaugural season in 1999-2000. Tourists continue to come from around the country to search for their own brightly colored, signed and numbered glass float.  In days gone by, visitors searching Oregon ‘s beaches often found treasures from the far-east: blown glass floats in intriguing shades of green and blue. Used by Japanese fishermen to float their nets, these spheres were as small as two inches or as large as two feet. They were collected, polished, and admired; the ultimate find for any dedicated beachcomber. Today fishing vessels around the world use buoyant plastic, making glass floats a rare find – except in Lincoln City where these treasures can be found every October through May during the Finders Keepers season.
