    PHOTO CAPTION: Visitors check out some of the colorful speeders during last Saturday's stop in Coos Bay.
    Last Saturday's visit by operators of the colorful railroad maintenance cars called "speeders" drew spectators all along the way on their trip from the Eugene area to Coquille and back. Organizers say the group is scheduled to return August 21 and October 9.
    Closed for the last 15 months because of the Covid epidemic, the Oregon Coast Historical Railway museum and display area in Coos Bay was open especially for an hour-long stop by the speeder group. The railroad museum currently is closed again, but according to railroad president Steve Jansen, will reopen on Saturday, July 3, and from then on for the summer and fall from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, along with Monday, July 5, and Labor Day, Sept. 6.
    To make this happen, Jansen said, more volunteers are need to greet visitors. No experience is required. For more information, please call museum manager Tom Baake at (541) 294-1112 or volunteer coordinator Nancy Fox at (916) 780-3569.

    Coos Bay Public Library Receives National Grant For Small And Rural Libraries

    Read More
    $3,000 Grant Will Help the Library Work with Residents to Increase Food Security and Literacy   
    COOS BAY — Coos Bay Public Library has been selected as one of 300 libraries to participate in Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries, an American Library Association (ALA) initiative that helps library workers better serve their small and rural communities.
    The competitive award comes with a $3,000 grant to help us increase food security, provide food literacy, and mitigate barriers that prevent individuals and families in Coos Bay from being food secure.
    "We are so proud to be chosen for this opportunity to work with our community" said Reference Librarian, Paul Addis. "This grant will allow our library to get to know our residents better and help us build a happier and healthier community for our citizens by providing more access to healthy food and nutritional learning opportunities."
    As part of the grant, Coos Bay Public Library staff will take an online course in how to lead conversations, a skill vital to library work today. Staff will then host conversations with residents about Food Security and Literacy, using the grant funds to increase access to our Community Cooking with the Co-op program, a collaboration with Coos Head Food Co-op and their Outreach Coordinator, Jamar Ruff. Fifty community members will receive $20 vouchers to obtain the ingredients needed to participate in our July and August programs on Zoom. In September, we will hold two community conversations with participants and community partners to discuss these and other grant-related activities.
    Coos County's most recent Community Food Assessment (CFA) stated that "In terms of nutritional health and eating habits of a community, it is evident that poverty and lack of education are serious contributors to the problem."
    If you are interested in getting involved or taking part in the conversation, please contact Paul Addis at paddis@coosbaylibrary.org or (541) 269-1101 x222.
    Since 2014, ALA's Libraries Transforming Communities initiative has re-imagined the role libraries play in supporting communities. Libraries of all types have utilized free dialogue and deliberation training and resources to lead community and campus forums; take part in anti-violence activities; provide a space for residents to come together and discuss challenging topics; and have productive conversations with civic leaders, library trustees and staff.

    Marshfield Sun Printing Museum Open This Summer

    05/13/2021

    Read More
    Why do we call capital letters "upper case" and the other letters "lower case"? Why do we call it "typing"?
    Find the answer to these and much more any Thursday through Saturday summer afternoon when you visit The Marshfield Sun Printing Museum on Coos Bay's historic waterfront.
    The Sun's original—and now historic—printing presses and other fascinating equipment can be viewed up close as skilled volunteers interpret and demonstrate how they work. Printing Museum volunteers also answer questions about the Museum's exhibits on printing and office technology, as well as on the life of the Sun's founder, Jesse Luce.
    Combine a visit to the Marshfield Sun with a visit to the nearby Coos History Museum for a jam-packed afternoon of interesting local history.
    The Marshfield Sun Printing Museum is a unique printing museum located in that building at the north end of Front Street on Coos Bay's historic waterfront. The unusually shaped building was built as the home for the Marshfield Sun newspaper and print shop in 1911. The Marshfield Sun was a working newspaper office and print shop from 1891 to 1944—and is today essentially as it was left in 1944, with additional exhibits on the walls and upstairs.
    The Marshfield Sun Printing Museum's regular summer hours begin the day after Memorial Day and go through Labor Day: 1pm–4pm Thursday through Saturday. Admission is free; masks and hand-sanitizing are required.

    Open Your Heart & Home To Foster Children

    09/12/2019

    Read More
    Last year, nearly 400 children spent time in foster care in Coos County. 66% spent time in more than one foster home. Many were split from their siblings.
    If a natural disaster hit our state and children were wandering the street without someone to care for them, each of us would open our homes to help in the crisis. With more than 350 children currently in foster care and more entering the system every day, we're in the midst of a disaster in our county.
    Oregon's Department of Human Services (DHS) works hard to care for children and families in crisis, but is often left with few resources for volunteer and foster parent recruitment efforts.
    If we don't step in, many children will be left without the care, comfort, and safety of a loving home during times of trauma, transition, and uncertainty. We can do better for Coos County's children. We know that our community want to take action, but they just don't know where to begin. Many of us feel helpless, doing nothing or never considering foster parenting.
    Every Child gathers community members in partnership with Oregon's Department of Human Services (DHS) to aide vulnerable children and families. And by doing so, we're able to bring love, care, and support to vulnerable children and families who previously had nowhere to turn.
    Everyone has something to bring to foster care — be it donating, volunteering or fostering. Go to Everychildcoos.org to learn more

Abbreviations

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.
