Last night or early this morning somebody in Toledo stole an extremely sweet and nice young lady’s white Ford Explorer from Dundan road. They managed to get it behind the yellow GP gate at the Olalla reservoir and wreck it in the canyon by the old boat launch.
Sadly it was a total loss and un-insured. Please help this young lady out. If you know anything message or call dispatch for Lincoln county sheriffs or Toledo PD.
By the way it looked, the accident must have happened fast as they seemed to hit the shoulder of the road and flip into the tree. so I would assume that as bad as the driver door area is banged up someone got banged up with it. So if you notice some one (especially a known thief) with a banged up left side, glass cuts etc. report them here and to the police. PLEASE!
4:20pm – Nye Beach – Just south of the Nye Beach Turnaround a 16 year old girl was pulled out through the surfline on a possible rip current. Newport Fire-Rescue was called to the scene and arrived about the time the girl managed to get her feet back down on the surf bottom and walk laboriously to shore. She appears to be fine.
12:48pm – Two vehicle crash at 101 and NW Oceanview Drive. Everyone is out of both cars. One 68 year old female has a head injury.
Consider attending a film showing of “Behind the Emerald Curtain,” an award-winning documentary on the practice of clearcutting and pesticide spraying in our industrial forests. It’s an educational and fundraising event for Citizens for a Healthy County. The film will be shown Friday, July 22 at 7 pm at The Congregational Church of Lincoln City, 1760 NW 25th St. Lincoln City.
The committee says the film exposes the harmful practice of pesticide spraying over clearcut industrial forests on our communities and our environment. They say the practice has caused serious illness and even deaths. The committee contends that aerial spraying of pesticides was deemed so harmful that it was banned on federal forests over 30 years ago, yet those same pesticides are still legal and sprayed today over private and state forests. They further contend that these chemicals contaminate the streams we fish from, the watersheds we drink from and the soil we grow our food in. In addition they claim that it poisons our wildlife and increases cancer and a series of other
degenerative diseases in our communities.
Citizens for a Healthy County has filed a citizens’ initiative to appear on the May 2017 ballot (corrected) to ban aerial spraying in Lincoln County. The committee invites all interested citizens to come and learn and to discuss this issue facing our county.
