While the Oregon coasties were watching parades, long-distance runners, tuna catch contests and a nearby summerfest, Oregon artist Michael Gibbons was gently guiding aspiring artists and art hobbyists through his painting techniques on the banks of the Yaquina River. It was a bright, beautiful Oregon day revealing its renown natural splendor that Michael Gibbons has been capturing on canvas for decades. A small gathering of students surrounded Michael as he demonstrated his unique talents for color, texture and light that has defined his relationship with his beloved Oregon.

The instruction was in the doing, as each observer paid close attention to Michael’s color mixings, each brush stroke and the sense of natural form and grace that was all within his gaze. And then, they picked up their own paint, brush and easel to begin their own artistic journey.

Shawn Griep

Lincoln City Police say the man they arrested for kidnapping a Portland area woman at knife-point July 3rd at the Tanger Outlet Mall is the same man who temporarily commandeered two employees at the Inn at Wecoma earlier in the day. Police say they are compiling their information on that part of the case against Shawn Griep who was arrested over the weekend at a residence in the Otis area. After a tip, officers sought permission to search the residence and the owner agreed to it. Inside the residence police say they found Griep hiding in a closet. He was taken into custody without incident.

Griep is being held at the Lincoln County Jail in lieu of a million dollars bond. He’s charged with kidnapping, robbery, assault, attempted sodomy and being a fugitive from justice. He’s accused of accosting a young Portland woman inside the garage of the Tanger Outlet Mall and forcing her to drive to a remote area. But as she slowed the car down she threw open her door and jumped out, but not before being slashed by Griep, police adding that she managed to run from the car to a nearby home where she was able to summon help. When police arrived, Griep had fled. He was not found despite a massive search of the area.

Police say Griep was also involved in an incident earlier in the day in which he forced two Inn at Wecoma employees into a room. However, he suddenly turned and left them unharmed. Police say the evidence of that occurrence is being compiled and will be given to the Lincoln County Grand Jury for their review and referral to the District Attorney’s Office.

Griep is expected to make his first court appearance this afternoon in Lincoln County Circuit Court at 1:15pm.

La Tour Eiffel, Paris

Acknowledging that there are a number of French high school students who are being hosted by a number of Newport families over the summer, the Newport Library is throwing a “French Culture Night” party for them Tuesday evening, July 26th, at the library. It’s for youngsters 12-18 years of age and it’s FREE!

Youth Services Assistant Linda Annable says it’ll be a chance for local kids who either speak french or have taken it in middle or high school to give it a whirl with some real “natives.” But if you speak only English, that’s okay too!

The library will be conducting it’s french confab with a “Tour de France” flair with French related crafts, snacks and activities to allow participants to let their international borders down. “They’ll enjoy the international language of fun and laughter,” said Annable.

For information simply call 541-574-5465. The Newport Library is located at the corner of Olive and Nye.

When you put on a fundraiser during which you make entrants run segments of a 69 mile race, and there’s lots of cold Rogue Ale waiting for them at the end, you’ve got yourself a winner! Such was the genius of a group of unabashed “do gooders” whose lives center around helping people down-on-their-luck find work, provide them training, offer help with family utility bills, even early childhood education.

They called the fundraiser “Barrel to Keg;” runners covering 69 miles in various segments between the Harris Bridge Vineyards near Philomath and the Rogue Brewery in South Beach.

Recession-aggravated budget cuts to the Community Services Consortium (CSC) have been deep and painful for CSC as well as for those needing help with paying their rent, utility bills, job training, including pre-school children needing Head Start in Toledo, Lincoln City and Newport.

CSC Executive Director Martha Lyon says the first run of the “Barrel to Keg” was a wonderful success and she promises it’ll be back again this time next year because budgets for vital human services may be no better then, than now.

Newport Food Pantry next to First Presbyterian Church on 12th.

The first-ever Newport Food Pantry is reaching out to the Newport area community in an effort to recruit volunteers to help run their new facility. It was recently constructed next to the First Presbyterian Church on 12th Street in Newport. The Newport Food Pantry is a partner with Food Share of Lincoln County which collects the food for distribution throughout Lincoln County. If you would consider becoming a volunteer for the Newport Food Pantry please look over the various job descriptions listed below:

Volunteer Positions:

Pantry Concierge: This person works near the door during pantry hours, greeting and counting people as they come into our building; assisting people at the bread counter, answering questions, and generally being helpful and friendly to visitors.

Front Desk: A direct contact person with the clients of Newport Food Pantry, this person gathers and verifies client eligibility information as well as assisting with choices for the “specials du jour” that are available thanks to the generosity of our faithful givers.

Personal Shopper:
This volunteer walks through the pantry with the client assisting with food choices and giving any necessary information about ingredients and food preparation. This is also the person who weighs the items after shopping is finished so that we can record statistics required by the Oregon Food Bank.

Grocer: This is the person who assists with packing the chosen “specials du jour” that may consist of fresh produce, meat, and frozen selections.

Transport Specialist: Food pantry drivers pick up bread and pastries at Safeway and Fred Meyer stores several times per week. Volunteer drivers use their own vehicle and must have a current Oregon Driver’s License and insurance.

Gardeners: “The Plant A Row Garden” volunteers grow all kinds of vegetables and herbs for distribution to clients. The volunteers work mostly during the spring and summer—about May through October—doing all sorts of planting, weeding and harvesting. Since the garden is an open area, this is one of the most flexible positions because you can work any time you are available.

Committee Members: The Newport Food Pantry Board of Directors are all volunteers. If you are interested in participating as a member of a board committee, we would love to have your time and talent. Our current committees include fund raising, building maintenance, grant writing, warehouse/distribution, and garden maintenance.

Those who would like more information should call 541-270-0842, or by e-mail at: Info@NewportFoodPantry.org

Oppor-TUNA-ty to take a “bite out of hunger.”

The Oregon Tuna Classic “Newport” made The Rogue Brewery a really busy place Saturday, fishers racing offshore to fish Tuna, then racing back in to dump their catches on the dock. Not for love of money but for their passion to feed the needy amid an ocean of plenty.

The Oregon Tuna Classic is conducted every year in Newport, Charleston, Garibaldi and Ilwaco to provide fresh, FREE tuna for local food banks; in our case for Food Share of Lincoln County. Over twenty teams plied the Oregon coast off Newport to see who could get the biggest tuna and a shot at prize money and boating-related accessories provided by sponsors.

In the end, everybody had a great day fishing (even though a little “bumpy,” we hear), had a tasty barbecue dinner and watched some big checks being handed out during the awards ceremony. Two videos provide you a boatside seat throughout the entire experience, the first provided by the TV program “The Joy of Fishing” produced out of Coos Bay. We add our own video to give you the “on the beach” experience.

The “Joy of Fishing” episode is found on the Oregon Tuna Classic’s website. Click here.

For the day on the beach as the fish were landed on the docks, to the awards ceremony, here’s that video, below:
