    Every Life Has A Story
    Tanya Nelson, Nelson’s Bay Area Mortuary

    Read More
    As mortality comes to a quiet end, respect for the life and sacrifice of good people remains. We saw that recently when a much-loved gentleman passed away in a hospice care in a city nearby. As we began the long walk out of the Hospice building with this man who had honorably served both his community and his country, we were amazed to see that they had put red, white and blue bunting on the cot and all of the care facility staff stood at attention the length of that long hallway from his room to the door. They were showing respect for him and his service as his life ended. No one was there to see it, and no one would ever have known other than those staff folks.
    It means the world to us to honor veterans on the final chapter of their life's journey. It is a particular honor to serve them, and a privilege to serve you. Every life's story should end with dignity; that is our mission.

    Situated in the south east corner of the USA, the states of Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi are also known as the Bible Belt. It is home to the civil rights movement and the birth place of the blues, but its greatest boast is simply good old southern hospitality. Traveler Ian Wright goes trekking in the Great Smokey Mountains, before driving south to Atlanta, Georgia. He then catches the bus to Tuskegee, Alabama and the idyllic beaches of the Gulf shores. Traveling down Highway 61 through Vicksburg and Clarksdale, he ends his journey in Memphis, Tennessee. Along the way he visits the birthplace of Martin Luther King, indulges in some comforting soul food, takes a ride on the Memphis Queen, Mississippi's legendary steamboat, attends the annual re-enactment of the battle of Fort Morgan, the last battle of the Civil War, and experiences Elvis week in Memphis, an annual pilgrimage for thousands of "The Kings" fans
    Everyone is welcome at this program sponsored by The Friends of Coos Bay Public Library. No admission is charged and refreshments will be provided. Please call 269-1101 for further information about this program. The library is located at 525 Anderson Avenue in Coos Bay.

    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, Or you can contact Laura Goode, sight chairman, at 541-297-6336

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.
