They are also in discussions with data-search engines Kayak.com, TripAdvisor.com, Fly.com and TravelZoo.com. She added SeaPort is also considering investing in what are called “interstitial ads” that pop up while a person is doing a Google-type search on a computer. Continue reading »

Drug drop box at Newport PD/City Hall

Newport Police wants everyone to know that the fight against illicit drugs, including misused pharmaceuticals, is a community-wide effort. It’s not just up to law enforcement. We all play a role.

And one way we can help is to ensure that any prescription drugs around the house or business, that are surplus or not being used, should immediately be taken to a drop-box like the one pictured here at the Newport Police Department end of City Hall. Other drop boxes have also been placed at police departments in Toledo and Lincoln City. Continue reading »

Infant falls from 2nd story window on NE 36th

Aug 062010
 

A one year old infant boy fell out of a second story window at the family’s Little Creek apartment this morning. Fire/rescue raced to the scene fearful of the worse but were relieved to learn the baby was scooped up by his parents and appeared to be okay. He was alert with no visible signs of injury.

Arriving paramedics quickly took the baby to PCH where it was to be checked out for any possible internal injuries.

The parents told investigators that the boy was on a table by a window sitting in a booster chair. One minute he was there, the next he was gone. Investigators said the infant probably pushed off with his feet, rolled over and went through the screen. Outside there was evidence the boy hit a barbecue grill on his way down, and was possibly shielded from the impact by his booster seat.

Fire Chief Richard Crook says these kinds of accidents are far more common that generally believed. He said all parents should consider open windows, even on the first floor, as a deadly danger. Especially in the upper floors. He said “treat an open window with a screen as if there is nothing between a child and the ground but open air.” He said “screens are no safety net. An open window is just that, an open window.”

Travelers between Waldport and Corvallis next week should budget more time for the trip. ODOT has announced that flaggers and road work will greet motorists from mile post 7 to 14 starting Monday. Crews will be laying down new pavement along those 7 miles of Highway 34.

Motorists should expect delays of up to twenty minutes and then be limited to 25 mph as they are escorted by a pilot car. With that sort of delay, some motorists would probably be advised to use Highway 20 out of Newport if they are on a tight schedule.
