The Bike Ride for Sight & Sound

The Ride for Sight & Sound is a ride along the coast that has been professionally planned, supported, and raises funds to care for our precious ability to see & hear. Funds raised during this event will allow your Central Coast Lions to continue their various programs and projects supporting our coastal communities, such as the Sight & Hearing testing of schoolchildren, as well as eyesight & hearing assistance for those in need.

Riders can join the ride at 9am in Lincoln City, 10am in Depoe Bay, 11am in Newport, Noon in Waldport or just show up at the finish parting in Yachats at 1pm.

Lions Club International could have invented the phrase “think globally, act locally”…it’s what we’ve done, for almost a century. What better way to raise awareness and funds, as well as the gift of being able to see & hear the surf…. than a metric century ride along the scenic Oregon Coast?

Not a Rider? Buy a ticket for the lunch @ Yachats Lions Hall & come win some great raffle prizes, too!

As part of the celebration of Arts and Humanities Month in Newport, the community is invited to participate in a Bayfront Mural Walk. The Walk will be held on Saturday, October 8, 2016, beginning at 3:00 P.M., on Newport’s historic Bayfront. Brochures with maps will be available on the day of the walk at the Forinash Gallery, 856 SW Bay Boulevard, and at the corner of Hatfield Drive and Bay Boulevard. The brochures are available in advance at City Hall, 169 SW Coast Highway.

The maps will identify murals that embellish the sides of various industrial, retail, and commercial buildings and other structures. There are nearly two dozen murals that line SW Bay Boulevard from Hatfield Drive to the U.S. Coast Guard Station Yaquina Bay which express a maritime story that is unique to Newport.

Artist Rick Chambers is the painter of the majority of the murals, but other artists have contributed to the storied walls of the Bayfront for many years.

The City of Newport Public Art Committee is working on a project that would assist in the restoration and maintenance of this irreplaceable cultural asset. Some of the murals have already disappeared, and the Committee is reviewing possible mural sponsorship opportunities. The goal of the Committee is to work with property owners, and other mural enthusiasts, to ensure that locals and visitors can enjoy the murals for a very long time.

The Noble Estate Winery will be distributing two-for-one tasting coupons to Mural Walk participants to visit its Newport tasting room which is located at 146 SW Bay Boulevard.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 8, 2016 for a special tour of Newport’s Bayfront murals.
For more information, please contact Peggy Hawker, City Recorder, at 541.574.0613 or p.hawker@newportoregon.gov.

From “Life Chain” a pro-life organization

Please join us on Sunday, Oct. 2, from 2:00-3:30 to stand for life!

Annually, in October, LIFE CHAIN invites churches in each city and town across North America to stand on a designated local sidewalk and silently pray, while holding one of the approved signs, with pro-life messages. Prayers are provided on the back of the signs for participants. This is a silent witness pointing out the sacredness of unborn children. Last year over 1500 cities and towns held LIFE CHAINS, in over 1800 locations including Newport.

For all of those who are pro-life, we will meet in front of Newport City Hall, 169 SW Coast Highway at 1:45pm in preparation for the hour long vigil that starts at 2pm. After a gathering prayer, we will hand out signs and proceed to the corners and sidewalks on Hwy 20 (Olive St.) and Hwy 101.

This is an opportunity to participate in a silent witness pointing out the sacredness of unborn children, and to offer prayers of healing for those who are grieving their abortions. At this time in history, this is a most important issue.

For questions or more details, please call:
Philomena O’Brian 541-270-5636 Cliff and Susan Morrison 541-765-2159 or Jerry and Elizabeth Kosydar 541-444-2246

End of 68th in Newport
Raw sewage is getting in to Schooner Creek and flowing into the ocean through late tonight. Should be fixed by midnight or so. The entire sewage capture system has been in the process of being rebuilt. It’s nearly complete so major leaks don’t keep happening. The system is very old.


Where Schooner Creek empties into the ocean.  Stay out of the creek and away from the area where the creek contacts the ocean.  Walking the beach is fine but don't go in the water.
