Description

Wow, just seven-days remain in the month of January for this New Year already!  Time flies when you are having fun, and I guess we are having a lot of fun.  Did the stroll around Mingus Park Monday.  What a nice January day.  People of all types out on the path and nice pleasantries offered back-and-forth as we circled the pond under a blue sunny sky and no wind.  Yes, on the cool side, but after starting a brisk walk, that goes away.  Old Faithful at Golden & 1st in Coos Bay was bubbling along as passing vehicles splashed its wake.  Still makes you wonder if the Coos Bay Downtown is sinking or is the water level in the bay rising?  Just seems to be a normal occurrence at this point.  Let's check the weather...  Mostly sunny along the South Oregon Coast with highs in the mid 50s and winds out of the Northeast at 5-10 mph.  Clear tonight with lows in the mid 30s and winds from the Northeast at 5-10 mph.  Sunny Wednesday with highs in the mid 50s.  That's not a bad forecast for Winter on the South Coast.  Best get to the news.... 
  • Got your sunrise/sunset times and tides for the Coos Bay Estuary.  Looks like another possible peculating day for Old Faithful.
  • Got some earthquakes in our area Monday.  A couple just off of Brookings and a larger one west of Bandon on the outer fault line.  
  • Sinkhole in the sand at Cape Kiwanda.  It is a wonder we don't see more of that with the underground springs and creeks, running to the ocean.  Okay, now do you say creek or crek?  Good question.  Seems the answer lies from your origin and region.
  • Coos Co. Board of Commissioners will meet this morning at the Owen Building in Coquille.
  • Coos Bay City Council and the URA will meet for a work session tonight.
  • Beginner Reader Book Club at CBPL today.
  • Hopes & Dream Exhibit at CBPL.
  • OCCI is preparing a Valentine's Dinner.  Now is the time to signup.  We did that once.  Interesting to see how the students prepare the dinner.  Nice atmosphere for dinner.  Gives one an insight into the type of competition they participate in on an international level.  Plus it is a good fund-raiser for the school.
  • South Coast Striders have a hike coming up in North Bend with a history appeal to it.  This is usually a lot of fun, and very informative.
  • OSU report on cultural views and wildfire protection.  
  • Another OSU report on wolves and their survival on an Alaska island.  Should be a NOVA report on this, or something.  It's interesting.
  • Registration is open for this year's GOSH conference March 6-9 in Portland.  Talking about safety in the workplace.
  • FBI offering rewards for the arrest of arsonists targeting reproductive healthcare centers in Portland.
  • Arizona woman arrested for bringing drugs into Oregon.  Caught on I-5, Salem area.
  • Use of Deadly Force involving Salem Police officers.
  • School shooting threat west of Eugene at Crow HS.
  • Fatal accident on Hwy. 47, Washington Co.
  • Area police logs show warrant arrests and UEMVs.
  • North Bend basketball at home tonight.  
  • OSU women's basketball has a Pac-12 Freshman of the Week.
  • Football schedules for 2023 for both UO and OSU released by the Pac-12 Office.
Looks like another good day to get a walk in.  Might as well because we all know sooner or later we are going to get hit by wind and rain and going outside will be less desirable.  What is really nice is there are so many options to walking around the Bay Area.  Not only Mingus Park, but Ferry Road Park/Simpson Park in North Bend as well.  How about the paths around the Empire Lakes?  I like the downtown strolls.  Gives one something to look at as a "Window Shopper."  Remember that term, "Window Shopping?"  During the hey days of downtown Coos Bay, the Hub Department Store had great window displays, as well as JC Penney's.  It is a lost art but tip your hat to Checkerberry's in the new Coos Bay Village.  They've got windows and they are working them.  Display marketing should return as both Bay Area cities promote their downtowns in an effort to generate more foot traffic and sales for the local merchants.  Plus, it is good exercise.
