“The Sea That Feeds Us” 2015 Marine Reserve Photo Contest
May 8, 2015—Do you like walking on the beach, watching seabirds, or just enjoying the views of the Oregon coast? You can share how you connect with Oregon’s marine reserves and special places by submitting a photo to “The Sea That Feeds Us,” a photo contest hosted by the Oregon Marine Reserves Partnership and Oviewfinder.
The contest, which launched in May and ends October 15, 2015, is a great way for anyone to share their connection with Oregon’s five marine reserves and nine protected areas by submitting a photo online.
“Oregon’s marine reserves mean many things to people, so we created this photo contest to give Oregonians an opportunity to share how they connect with these special places,” said OMRP co-chair Pete Stauffer. “Anyone can take a picture to convey their connection with our marine reserves.”
The five marine reserves are Cape Falcon, Cascade Head, Otter Rock, Cape Perpetua, and Redfish Rocks. The three categories of photo submissions include landscapes, people, and fish and wildlife, and prizes will be awarded in all three categories.
“The prizes we will be awarding will foster connection with Oregon’s coast and marine reserves. Examples include free kayak and boat tours, tickets to the Oregon aquarium, and free lodging at a coastal hotel,” said Stauffer.
As part of the photo contest, the OMRP is sponsoring photo workshops by professional photographer Jason Waicunas of Oviewfinder. The workshops will be hosted at four of Oregon’s marine reserves, and will give people the opportunity to photograph crashing waves, tide pools, wildlife, people recreating, and coastal landscapes.
Join in the fun and share your connection with Oregon’s marine reserves by submitting a photo to Oregon’s first marine reserve photo contest. Prizes will be awarded in October.
The OMRP is committed to implementing and maintaining Oregon’s Marine reserves and protected areas for all Oregonians by supporting scientific research, community engagement, and effective communications among all stakeholders.

Web Soil Survey and Other Internet Tools for Ag and Forest Landowners
REGISTRATION DEADLINE OCT. 12TH / CLASS OCT. 14TH!!
Oregon State University Lincoln County Extension Service and Oregon Coast Community College are offering a workshop about using the Web Soil Survey and other internet mapping tools to help you manage your property. A soil survey is an inventory of the different soil types and their location in the county. The Web Soil Survey is a useful web-based tool that was created, and is maintained, by the Natural Resource and Conservation Service. You can use several methods for choosing a location including: an address, Section Range and Township, or Latitude and Longitude. An aerial photo is available so you can select your property. Information is available about what soils are present, their characteristics, agriculture or forest productivity, suitability for using heavy equipment, and much more. However, the Web Soil Survey is not always easy to use. Bring a description of the location of your property and leave the class with your own Soil Survey Report (an important part of a written management plan). If you think that this type of information would be valuable for you and you are not familiar with the Web Soil Survey, this workshop might be just what you are looking for. Registration fee is $10 to cover the cost of handout materials. Registration deadline is October 12. Space is limited, so register early. Class will be at the Oregon Coast Community College Lincoln City campus on October 14th from 10AM – noon. You can access the registration form at: http://extension.oregonstate.edu/lincoln/forestry/news or stop by the OSU Lincoln County Extension Office, 1211 SE Bay Blvd. in Newport.

Loopfest Sunday October 18th Lincoln City Cultural Center
What uses hardware, software, musicality and volume to create performance art? Live looping, like the kind that will envelop the Lincoln City Cultural Center. After gigs in Seattle and Portland, the NW Loopfest will bring six artists and seven hours of live looping to the center starting at 5 pm on Sunday, Oct. 18. Admission is by donation, thanks to a generous lodging donation from Chinook Winds Casino Resort.
The 2015 NW Loopfest is billed as a “performance art festival of technology.”
Looping artists use hardware/software technologies to instantly record sound, and play it back, creating layers of sound that explore many genres of music and film. Born from the experimental efforts of early pioneers with magnetic tape and sound recording devices, “loopers” have expanded into every music genre and into performance art.
“What I have assembled at this festival are performers who are passionate and serious about their music and their technology,” said festival manager Noah Peterson. “They are there for you to enjoy and appreciate. Support them, buy a recording or make a donation. We hope you’ll come on board and see how incredible looping is.”
Some of the featured festival artists, like Cindy Sawprano and Canzino, play traditional instruments while looping the outputs. Others expand the art form even further. MC Space Cadet, for example, has created an entirely new “instrument” that is played with the body – a kinetic-based, gestural, visual looping machine called the Holofunk.
Doors will open at 5 pm, and the event is open to all ages. Donations will be split between the center and the artists, with the lodging provided by Chinook Winds Casino Resort. For more information, head to the festival website: http://www.noahpeterson.com/nw_loopfest/. Or, call the Lincoln City Cultural Center, 541-994-9994.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Noah Peterson – LoopFest MC and saxophonist extraordinaire. Tasty tunes, funky riffs, screaming sax with effects, and a couple of campy songs are served up with some Texas soul. The music is fun, well arranged and a delight every time. http://www.noahpeterson.com.
Frederick Brummer – Half performance, half demonstration, Frederick’s setup is a synthesizer and a microphone recorded to, and looped on analog disks. http://www.frederickbrummer.com
Canzino – Progressive and electro rock, balancing technology while playing guitar melodies, with vocals on top. Canzino adds and subtracts loops to make his songs. http://www.canzino.com
MC Space Cadet – Part demo, part performance, he uses a kinetic-based, gestural, audiovisual live looper, Holofunk. “Basically a ‘Minority Report’ interface for looping.” He can see and manipulate the music as he creates it, and the audience can see it, too.
Thisissami – Expect a heavy hitting electro set that will be 100% improvised. Sami performs with a variety of controllers and synths, all routing into Ableton Live’s Session View (aka Sami’s Looper).
Cindy Sawprano – An admirer of classical music and musical theater, Cynthia creates avant pop tunes mixed with soundscapes using musical saw, voice, found objects and effects. An award-winning sawist, she has frequented the International Musical Saw Festival, New York Saw Festival, trees, film libraries and BART. She has been described as “one who does more with her voice and saw than you have ever done with anything else.”
“Guns and Hoses” Celebrity Server Event – Oct. 21st
“Guns and Hoses” is the theme when Lincoln City Police Chief, Keith Kilian and Captain Jim Kusz of the North Lincoln Fire Department become the next Celebrity Servers to help Family Promise of Lincoln County with a fundraiser on October 21st at New Mexico, formerly Red Hook Restaurant in Lincoln City.
As Celebrity Servers, the celebrities will help serve your meals at the restaurant which are paid for in the traditional manner. Then, any additional tips earned by the Celebrity Servers are paid separately by cash, check or credit card and donated to Family Promise.
“This particular event also involves a little friendly competition between the Lincoln City Police Department and the North Lincoln Fire District.” Police Chief Keith Kilian shared. “Although it remains to be seen who brings in the most people to the Guns and Hoses event, the real winner will be Family Promise.”
Captain Jim Kusz stated, “This is such a great community; whenever there is a need, people step up to fill it. When asked to assist with the Guns and Hoses event for Family Promise, I felt it was just my turn.”
Chief Killian, who is also a Board Member of Family Promise, added, “Celebrity Server events are a great way to bring the community together to raise money for a worthy cause. Family Promise of Lincoln County is a very worthy cause that I am proud to be associated with.”
We appreciate what these first responders do for us every day. Attending the event would be a great way to show our respect to them while they are stepping up to help our community through Family Promise.
Family Promise of Lincoln County is a non-profit organization that mobilizes communities, local groups, congregations and social service agencies to provide shelter, meals and help toward stable, long-term housing for families with children. The program model is unique, has proven tremendously successful and is part of a nationwide network.

FILM: “To Kill A Mockingbird” …………October 25th at 2pm
Annual Community Reading Event
“The Mockingbird Next Door,” by Marja Mills November 2, at Newport Middle School
Newport Reads!, the Newport Library Foundation’s annual community reading event, will be held in November this year! On Monday, November 2, at 7 p.m. at the Newport Middle School, Marja Mills will give a presentation on her book, The Mockingbird Next Door, a memoir of her remarkable relationship with Harper Lee, the famously reclusive author of To Kill a Mockingbird.
When the Newport Reads! Committee heard Mills would be in the Northwest this fall, they simply couldn’t resist inviting her to visit Newport. Hosting an event featuring one of the few journalists allowed into Lee’s life will enable Newport to take part in the national conversation sparked by the controversial July publication of Lee’s novel Go Set a Watchman, written before To Kill a Mockingbird and purported to have only been discovered last year.
In 2001, Mills, with Harper Lee’s extremely unusual cooperation, wrote a piece for the Chicago Tribune that earned the author’s respect and friendship. Their growing bond eventually led Mills to rent the house next door to Lee and her older sister Alice for eighteen months starting in 2004. Mills became part of the Lee sisters’ daily lives, accompanying them for drives through the Alabama countryside, feeding the ducks, and drinking pots of coffee. When Mills published The Mockingbird Next Door in 2014, The Boston Globe called it “a rare, surprising, and respectful look at the Lees and their milieu.”
To complement the November 2nd presentation, the 1962 film To Kill a Mockingbird starring Gregory Peck will be shown at the Library on Sunday, October 25th at 2 p.m.
copies of The Mockingbird Next Door (as well as To Kill a Mockingbird and Go Set a Watchman) are available to be checked out from the Newport Library.
The Newport Public Library Foundation sponsors Newport Reads! with support from the Hallmark Resort Newport. For more information, call the Newport Public Library at 541-265-2153 or go to newportlibrary.org.

17thth Annual Fantasy of Trees & Angels Holiday Ball set for December 2-5 at Chinook Winds Casino Resort
Each year, Angels Anonymous, a local non-profit charitable organization, presents “The Fantasy of Trees” and “The Song of the Angels” Holiday Ball, the group’s largest annual fundraiser, at Chinook Winds Casino Resort. This will be the sixteenth year for the event which will be held December 2 through December 5.
Twenty three trees, decorated and sponsored by local businesses and individuals who not only spend hours decorating the trees but several hundred dollars in decorations on each tree as well, will be on display at this year’s Festival of Trees. Over the past years the themes of the individual trees have included Betty Boop, Firemen, chocolates, peacocks, roses, ballerinas, fishing, old fashioned Christmas, hand carved ornaments, OSU and U of O trees, and many splendidly trimmed in specific colors.
Decorating of the Christmas trees by sponsors will take place Monday and Tuesday, November 30 and December 1 from 10 am to 9 pm. The public is invited to the free viewing of the trees beginning Wednesday, December 2 through Friday, December 4 from noon to 8pm, and Saturday, December 5, from 10am to 3pm.

The auction of the Christmas Trees, special items and wreaths will take place during the Angels Ball along with numerous drawings.
Tickets, priced at $75, include passed hors d’ oeuvres, Seafood, Steak, Baked Potato and Dessert Stations, live entertainment, dancing and the auction of the Christmas Trees. They can be purchased at the Lincoln City Chamber of Commerce located at 4039 NW Logan Road (call 541-994-3070). It’s a great idea for your office party with the proceeds going to charity! Seating is limited for this event which is not only considered by many as the most enjoyable event of the Holiday Season, but one that celebrates the true meaning of Christmas – providing means to help those who are in need. Hours of the Ball are 5:30pm until 11:30pm.
Angels Anonymous, a 501C-3 non-profit foundation, provides immediate and basic assistance to those in need in the greater north Lincoln County area. The program helps those who have exhausted every other avenue of assistance to meet immediate and basic short-term needs. It may be the young mother left to fend for herself with no money to feed her children, an elderly man who has had his heat turned off in the dead of winter, or a young man desperately in need of employment, who receives assistance. It’s anonymous and a one-time only helping hand extended to residents of north Lincoln County. During the first three quarters of 2015 Angels Anonymous dispersed over $31,000 providing funds for 46 families to meet immediate and basic needs.
