    Read and Craft Book Club

    11/25/2021

    Read More
    The Coos Bay and North Bend Public Libraries are teaming up to offer a monthly Read and Craft Book Club for young people in grades 4-8. Beginning December 1, participants can pick up a free copy of a book and a themed craft at the Coos Bay or North Bend Library. The first Tuesday of the month at 4:00pm, the libraries will jointly host an online book discussion and craft time on Zoom. Young people can participate in one or all of the discussions. Limited kits and books are available, but, additional copies of the titles are available at the library for checkout.
    Read and Craft Club will kickoff reading The Truth As Told By Mason Buttle by Leslie Connor. The first meeting will happen Tuesday, January 4, at 4:00pm via Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85870526888. Mason Buttle doesn't have it easy. In addition to being the biggest, sweatiest kid in his grade, fifteen months ago, Mason's best friend, Benny Kilmartin, turned up dead in the Buttle family's orchard. An investigation drags on, and Mason can't understand why Lieutenant Baird won't believe the story Mason has told about that day. Both Mason and his new friend, tiny Calvin Chumsky, are relentlessly bullied by the other boys in their neighborhood. When Calvin goes missing, Mason finds himself in trouble again. He's desperate to figure out what happened to Calvin and, eventually, Benny. But will anyone believe him? Tragic, hopeful, and moving it will appeal to readers who enjoyed Wonder by R.J. Palacio or the Wishtree by Katherine Applegate.
    Upcoming titles include Pax by Sara Pennypacker and Hello, Universe by Erin Entrada Kelly.

    Towards a 21st Century Abstraction at Coos Art Museum

    09/23/2021

    Read More
    Coos Bay, OR – October 8 through December 4, 2021, Coos Art Museum will be featuring Towards a 21st Century Abstraction a traveling exhibition highlighting the works of seven leading abstract painters from around the country. The artists include: David Bailin of Wellfeet, Massachusetts, Connie Connally of Santa Barbara, California, Brad Ellis of Dallas Texas, Jeri Ledbetter of Memphis, Tennessee, Katherine Chang Liu of Westlake Village, California, Sammy Peters of Little Rock, Arkansas, and Wosene Worke Kosrof of Berkeley, California.
    "Abstract art has been a viable form of visual creation for over a hundred years. Its meanings and manifestations have multiplied over those years, resisting or avoiding the whims of fashion to provide artists an increasingly vast range of language and meaning. Why, then, do we worry about – or, alternatively, glibly dismiss – the survival of abstract art? Is abstraction dead? Is it die-able? Does abstract art need to be defended at this point, or simply re-averred? And in either case, by whom?" Peter Frank, Art Critic and the Exhibition's Curator.
    This exhibition comes to us from the Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art and will be headed for the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts in 2022. More information on the exhibition and the participating artists can be found on the website https://www.abstraction21c.com/.

    Coquille Indian Tribe Offers Grants

    09/02/2021

    Read More
    Contributed By: The Coquille Indian Tribe
    NORTH BEND – After focusing on pandemic-related projects in 2021, the Coquille Tribal Community Fund will return to supporting a broad range of community programs in 2022.
    "We felt the need to assist the local COVID-19 response last time," said tribal Chairman Brenda Meade. "In our new grant cycle, we'll still consider COVID-related projects, but we also want to serve a variety of community needs."
    The tribe shared $266,107 with more than 60 community organizations and projects in southwestern Oregon in 2021. All the 2021 grants targeted pandemic-related expenses of local and regional organizations.
    The grant recipients included food pantries, homeless programs, museums, community centers, veterans groups, services for children and even a couple of music programs.
    "It's a huge privilege to be able to help so many outstanding organizations and projects," Meade said.
    The biggest share of the money, about $97,000, went to Coos County organizations. Lane County groups received about $52,000, Jackson County $44,000, Douglas County $33,000, and Curry County $33,000.
    The five counties make up the Coquille Tribe's congressionally designated service area, based on significant populations of tribal members living in each county. The grants are funded by a share of annual revenue from The Mill Casino-Hotel & RV Park in North Bend.
    The tribal fund is one of southwestern Oregon's leading sources of community grants, distributing more than $7 million over the past two decades.
    The fund will accept letters of inquiry for its upcoming grant cycle during September and October from organizations in all five counties. As in years past, the 2022 grants will focus on seven categories: education, public safety, arts and culture, environment, historic preservation, health and gaming addiction.
    "We give big grants and little ones," said Jackie Chambers, the fund's administrator. "We encourage all kinds of projects and programs to apply."
    Letters of inquiry for the 2022 grants are due Oct. 31. Organizations whose letters are accepted will be invited to submit formal applications by Nov. 30. Grants will be announced in late February or early March.
    For more information, visit the tribal fund website at www.coquilletribalfund.org, or contact Chambers at jackiechambers@coquilletribe.org or (541) 756-0904, ext. 1201.
    Michael Ferguson: Landscape Journey 1992-2019 at Coos Art Museum

    Read More
    Coos Bay, OR – October 8 through December 4, 2021, Coos Art Museum will be featuring Michael Ferguson: Landscape Journey 1992-2019. This solo exhibition presents works from three decades of landscape art by Tacoma, Washington artist Michael Ferguson. "As a northwest native, it's no surprise that I am influenced constantly by our rich and varied landscape…. My painting approach is basically representational with some generous flexibility at times. A fractured multi-colorist approach can turn in to a more controlled realism as needed." A free reception for the exhibition will take place Friday October 8 from 5 to 7 pm.
    Ferguson is graduate of the Burnley School of Art in Seattle, Washington and has had solo exhibitions at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle as well as the North Central Washington Museum in Wenatchee, Washington. He has also had solo exhibitions at galleries in Tacoma, Portland, and Seattle. Notable group exhibitions in which he participated were held at the Tacoma Art Museum, The Missoula Museum of the Art and at Coos Art Museum. His works are in many public and private collections throughout the Northwest.

    NYC Conversation – Jan and Ken Ayers at Coos Art Museum

    Coos Bay, OR – October 8 through December 4, 2021, Coos Art Museum will be featuring NYC Conversation a two-person exhibition of works by Ken and Jan Ayers of Bandon, Oregon. A free reception for the exhibition will take place Friday October 8 from 5 to 7 pm.
    The "NEW YORK CITY CONVERSATION began in August 1975 when Jan and Ken began working together answering phones at Barnes & Noble Bookstore at the corner of 18th and Fifth Avenue. Various aesthetic concerns expressed in this show were nurtured by their shared experience of the multidimensional, experimental art, music and performance scenes flourishing in downtown New York City at that time. Ken had arrived in the city in late January returning from several months traveling overland through India and Nepal. Jan had returned after a summer workshop session at Connecticut College featuring dance and experimental theater studying with Andre Gregory, Lee Breuer of Mabou Mines and choreographer Mary Overlie. Ken eventually moved to San Francisco and Jan kept New York as home base. They resumed their conversation in early 2011 and it continues to this day. The show involves bronze sculpture, hemp-wrapped bamboo and beaver sticks, photographs and words.

    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

    DUE TO COVID THESE MAY BE CANCELLED
    The Coos Bay Lions Club Sight Program is changing the way we accept applications. Before we were depending on our club members to get us names and telephone numbers, then we would mail out applications and certificates. This whole process could take 6 weeks or more.
    We will now be hosting a Sight Clinic on the 4th Saturday of every month at the Coos Bay Library from 1pm to 4pm. At this clinic we will be processing applications and giving certificates on site.
    Anyone seeking our assistance with eye exams and glasses will need to come in person and bring proof of income, proof of residency and a picture ID. For emergency situations (ie. glasses broken but needed for work or school) we can expedite the process over the phone.
    If you have any questions you can reach the Lions club by phone or e-mail: 541-252-9930, cblionsightprogram@gmail.com. Or you can contact Laura Goode, sight chairman, at 541-297-6336

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.
