Motor vehicle crash on Fruitvale, about a mile and a half north of Highway 20. Appears to be non-injury.

Report from the scene: A window delivery truck was headed up Fruitvale Road when the driver was confronted by an oncoming car. The delivery truck driver said he had to swerve a little to the right to avoid a head on collision. But his wheels went off the road and slid down an embankment until the truck was stopped by a tree. Driver is okay. Witnesses reportedly backed up the driver’s story.

Drug activity exacts a significant toll on everyone in our society, not just drug abusers, their families and friends. This problem can contribute to homelessness, crime, problems at school and the workplace, as well as healthcare costs. Some of the impacts include:

* Death, injury, and illness from overdoses and the short- and long-term effects of drugs.
* Increased crime and fear of crime causing people to withdraw from community life.
* Traffic hazards due to impaired driving.
* Abuse and neglect of children, seniors and pets; aggravation of domestic violence; assaults and drug-related homicides.
* Damage to property from neglect, contamination, fires, explosions and theft of services such as electricity and water.
* Contamination of natural areas.
* Livability impacts such as trash, noise and other issues.

Travel: In the Coast Range this morning, highways are wet, temp 45F. Willamette Valley roads are wet, thermometer readings 45-50F. The Columbia River Gorge has wet pavement, temperatures 40-45F, east winds gusting 30-40 mph.

Also, motorists should always visit ODOT’s TripCheck for the latest traffic conditions including delays and hazards.

Marine: Winds are southerly 10-20 knots gusting 25-30 this morning with rough, steep seas 13-14 feet at 11 seconds. A Small Craft Advisory for winds is in effect through this evening. A Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas is in effect through late tonight. Very active weather appears quite possible early next week, but let’s start with today. A weak, broad low-pressure system is shifting toward the coast through Friday. There is a secondary smaller circulation that will move through tonight. Going into this weekend, weaker pressure gradients will allow winds to stay fairly benign for this time of year and seas will come down below 10 feet for Friday and Saturday. Uncertainty begins to increase as we get into Sunday and Monday as there are some timing differences with the next system. Confidence in the strength and track is starting to increase with gales looking more likely, but the timing is the big question. The more likely scenario will bring gales in Sunday afternoon and evening, continuing overnight until the front moves through on Monday. Seas with this system will come up as well, into at least the mid-teens if not approaching 20 feet depending on how long the gales persist. An active weather pattern is expected to continue through the rest of next week with additional systems bringing possible gales and seas approaching 15-20 feet on Tuesday and Thursday. * Full text of the latest marine forecast is available here. And, make sure you check the latest Bar Reports before venturing offshore.

Lincoln City
Busy place…

The Lincoln City Warming Shelter will hold a “Warm up for Winter” reception on Tuesday, Nov. 14, to showcase its new premises and raise funds for its winter shelter operation. The reception will run from 5 to 7 pm at Taft Hall, the former fire station on SE 48th Place, where the shelter will be serving the homeless this winter.

Guests at the reception will get to enjoy coffee, mulled wine and homemade cookies as well as taking a tour of the building, which will provide both overnight accommodation and daytime resource referral services.
The event is free but donations to help cover the shelter’s operational costs will be gratefully accepted.

“The City’s decision to award $45,000 to the warming shelter earlier this year was a huge boost to our operation and has allowed us to expand our services,” said Lincoln City Warming Shelter President Patrick Alexander. “We want to preserve as much of that funding as possible to establish a permanent shelter location, so we are hoping the public will also lend their support to a program that serves the most needy among us and benefits our community as a whole.”

Starting on Wednesday, Nov. 15, the shelter will open its doors on nights when temperatures are forecast to fall below 40 degrees. Shelter guests will get dinner, a bed for the night and breakfast in the morning.
Shelter guests who want to take the first steps toward addressing the causes of their homelessness will be able to schedule appointments for resource referral sessions offered onsite by Lincoln City Homeless Solutions.

The shelter will operate from Taft Hall through mid-February, with the option of extending into March in the event that low temperatures continue into late winter.

KYAQ Community Radio 91.7FM Update

Happy Fall, KYAQ Community Members! We’ve been busy here at KYAQ and have lots of information to share about what’s going on at the station, and to tell you about a few events happening this month and next.

Last December KYAQ was in danger of going off the air because it couldn’t pay a large, past-due debt. Because of your generosity and commitment to community radio, KYAQ was able to retire that debt and is still on the airwaves! THANK YOU! However, this year finds the station in jeopardy once again – this time the past-due rent bill must be paid in order to stay at our present location. KYAQ needs to raise $9,000 by the end of 2017 or face eviction. The good news is once this bill is paid, KYAQ will be on firm footing thanks to you! KYAQ has only been on the air 4 years, and to find itself debt-free going into 2018 will be a real accomplishment and demonstrates the strong commitment for community radio in Lincoln County. It’s tough to ask you all again to help pay this last deficit, but we know how important community radio is to you. Last year KYAQ raised nearly $10,000! So we know we can do it again, but only with your help. To meet our new goal of $9,000, we’ve planned some fun events.

To donate to KYAQ: Send your donations to: KYAQ, P.O.Box 1664, Newport, OR. 97365 or on line:

Hittin’ the great outdoors after Thanksgiving!

Free use of Oregon State Parks the day after Thanksgiving!

Oregon State Parks invites you to play for free on Nov. 24 in celebration of ‘Green Friday.’ The agency will waive day-use parking fees in 26 Oregon State Parks the day after Thanksgiving.

“We started this tradition three years ago to encourage people to get outdoors and exercise after a big meal,” said OPRD director Lisa Sumption. “Why not get some fresh air with your family and create a new holiday tradition?”

To help celebrate, the nonprofit Oregon State Parks Foundation is offering free hot drinks and snacks at Tryon Creek State Natural Area, Fort Stevens State Park, Rooster Rock State Park, Silver Falls State Park and Cape Blanco State Park. Refreshments — donated by Starbucks Coffee, Nossa Familia Coffee, Smith Tea, Stevens Cocoa and KIND Bars — will be served by volunteers from the local Friends Groups.

Parking is free year-round at almost all state parks; the waiver applies to the 26 parks that charge $5 daily for parking. The waiver applies from open to close on Nov. 25, except at Shore Acres State Park, where it expires at 3 p.m. for the Holiday Lights event that runs Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve. A list of parks that require day-use parking permits is at

Daily parking permits can be purchased on site, but one- and two-year passes are also available online at
