Many people hear about ocean acidification (OA) and think about bleaching coral reefs, but what are the effects of OA on our local estuaries? Will our oyster and Dungeness crab fisheries be affected? Is there anything we can do about OA locally? The MidCoast Watersheds Council invites the public to attend a presentation by Dr. George Waldbusser, on February 1st, 2018 at 6:30 PM in Newport. The talk will be held in room 205 at the Newport Visual Arts Center at Nye Beach. Refreshments will be served.

Ocean acidification is the lowering of pH due to the absorption of carbon dioxide. It is often thought of as an open ocean problem. However, regulators, policy makers, and scientists have realized that ocean acidification also occurs within our nearshore waters and estuaries. The dynamic nature typical of our region’s estuaries, and the fact that they are already often naturally (or unnaturally) enhanced in carbon dioxide has led many to believe increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide does not affect these important habitats. In addition to acidification from atmospheric increases in carbon dioxide, other local and watershed based inputs can also contribute to the acidification of local estuarine waters. In this presentation, George will discuss some of these dynamics and conceptual issues preventing a deeper appreciation of acidification in estuaries, as well as various proposed measures and approaches that can be taken locally to help mitigate this acidification.

Dr. George Waldbusser is an Associate Professor in the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University with an interest in human-environment interactions. His expertise is in seafloor ecology and biogeochemistry, and he conducts research on the interactions between marine and estuarine biology and chemistry. For the past decade he has been studying ocean acidifications on bivalves, including oysters, mussels, and clams, in Corvallis and the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, as well as the US East Coast. He was instrumental in helping to interpret ocean acidification impacts in oyster hatcheries here in the Pacific Northwest, and works on both in basic and applied research questions including strategies for adaptation and mitigation of acidification effects. Dr. Waldbusser has interacted with shellfish growers around the country, and in France, Chile and New Zealand, and was awarded the OSU Vice Provost’s Award for Excellence in Strategic Impact in 2016 for his efforts working with stakeholders. He also serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Shellfish Research and is an Associate Editor at the journals of Limnology and Oceanography: Methods and the Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology.

How to stop pesky robo calls – Duane Silbernagel

What can I do to crack down on robocalls?
Provided By: Duane J. Silbernagel, CFP®

You may not mind if a legitimate robocall provides a helpful announcement from your child’s school or an appointment reminder from a doctor’s office. But sadly, criminals often use robocalls to collect consumers’ personal information and/or conduct various scams. Newer “spoofing” technology displays fake numbers to make it look as though calls are local, rather than coming from overseas, which could trick more people into answering the phone.

Robocalls have been illegal since 2009 (unless the telemarketer has the consumer’s prior consent). In mid-2017, federal agencies announced they are ramping up enforcement by fining violators and encouraging blocking technologies. What should you do if you want to help put an end to this nuisance?
1. Don’t answer calls when you don’t recognize the phone number. If you pick up an unwanted robocall, just hang up. Don’t answer “yes” or “no” questions, provide personal information, or press a number to “opt out.” Responding to the call in any way verifies that it has reached a real number and could prompt additional calls.

2. Look into robocall blocking solutions that may be offered by your phone service provider. If they’re available, you may need to follow specific instructions to “opt in.” Otherwise, consider a mobile app or cloud-based service designed to block robocalls; some of them are free or cost just a few dollars.

3. Consider registering your phone number on the National Do Not Call Registry. While taking this step can help mitigate the amount of robocalls you receive, it’s only a partial solution to the problem. The Federal Trade Commission advises consumers whose numbers are on the registry but still receive unwanted calls to report robocall violations at complaints.donotcall.gov. The phone numbers provided by consumers will be released each day to companies that are working on call-blocking technologies, which largely depend on “blacklists” with numbers associated with multiple complaints.

How can I protect myself from digital deception?

Imagine that you receive an email with an urgent message asking you to verify your banking information by clicking on a link. Or maybe you get an enticing text message claiming that you’ve won a free vacation to the destination of your choice — all you have to do is click on the link you were sent. In both scenarios, clicking on the link causes you to play right into the hands of a cybercriminal seeking your sensitive information. Just like that, you’re at risk for identity theft because you were tricked by a social engineering scam.

Social engineering attacks are a form of digital deception in which cybercriminals psychologically manipulate victims into divulging sensitive information. Cybercriminals “engineer” believable scenarios designed to evoke an emotional response (curiosity, fear, empathy, or excitement) from their targets. As a result, people often react without thinking first due to curiosity or concern over the message that was sent. Since social engineering attacks appear in many forms and appeal to a variety of emotions, they can be especially difficult to identify.

Take steps to protect yourself from a social engineering scam. If you receive a message conveying a sense of urgency, slow down and read it carefully before reacting. Don’t click on suspicious or unfamiliar links in emails, text messages, and instant messaging services. Hover your cursor over a link before clicking on it to see if it will bring you to a real URL. Don’t forget to check the spelling of URLs — any mistakes indicate a scam website. Also be sure to look for the secure lock symbol and the letters https: in the address bar of your Internet browser. These are signs that you’re navigating to a legitimate website.

Never download email attachments unless you can verify that the sender is legitimate. Similarly, don’t send money to charities or organizations that request help unless you can follow up directly with the charitable group.

Be wary of unsolicited messages. If you get an email or a text that asks you for financial information or passwords, do not reply — delete it. Remember that social engineering scams can also be used over the phone. Use healthy skepticism when you receive calls that demand money or request sensitive information. Always be vigilant and think before acting.

Interim Superintendant of Lincoln County Schools.

Update on Lincoln County School District’s Superintendent Search
Letter from Tom Rinearson

Monday, January 22.

Just taking a moment to update our community on the search for a new superintendent. On Friday, January 19, the posting to apply for the Lincoln County Superintendent closed. We are happy to report that we have received a good number of qualified applications. Both from out-of-state and in-state candidates. Both experienced and first-time superintendent applicants.

Our next step is to host a training session for our board by trying out our prepared interview questions on two of my friends who are seasoned superintendents. We will have a debrief session after this training and then move into selecting candidates to interview. The screening committee will have a refresher on topics of confidentiality and the entire candidate screening process. It is an exciting time and we still anticipate the board will conduct initial interviews February 12-15.

The Lincoln County School District Board of Directors has scheduled work and executive session meetings beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 23, 2018, in Room W19 at Newport High School in Newport, Oregon. The work session will include orientation and training for superintendent search screening committee members about the screening process and confidentiality, followed by an executive session. The agenda for the executive session will include a brief review of superintendent applications the evening of January 23. Board members will conduct mock interviews. Screening committee and Board members will review the applications in more depth over the course of January 24, 25 and 26; the executive session will remain open during these days.

Ivan Kelly

“The Ambassador”
Sam Briseno

Gabriel Salcedo

The Yaquina River Museum in Toledo invites you to a SWEET 1st Weekend of local art February 3 & 4.. This month, oil painter Ivan Kelly will be the featured artist of the event. Kelly, a Signature Member of the American Society of Marine Artists since 2000, started his painting career in 1972 after emigrating from North Ireland to Western Canada. Under the mentorship of prolific landscape painter Robert Lougheed, Ivan learned to capture the beauty of the West. Now, as a well-established artist living on the Oregon Coast, Ivan continues to illustrate the landscapes which surround him.

Join Ivan in his Studio Gallery at 207 East Graham Street this First Weekend for a showing of “Incoming at Rocky Creek”, a painting which depicts a December morning at Rocky Creek State Park as warm sunlight moves across the green, drops down the basalt cliffs and lights the spindrift of an incoming monster wave. A symphony of sunlight, motion, noise and power all in an instant. The Studio Gallery will be offering complimentary refreshments and talks with the artist on Saturday, February 3rd, from 11AM-5PM and on Sunday, February 4th, from Noon-5PM. For more information, visit www.ivankelly.com or call (541) 336-1124.

On Alder Street, Michael Gibbons’ Signature Gallery will be welcoming visitors. Michael Gibbons has captured a favorite scene of the Northwest; a pristine view of the Coast Range Mountains fir trees with a sparkling Beaver Creek meandering through meadow grass. The site is often thought of as remote, but in reality, those living here know similar beauty is found easily on logging roads and trails of the Northwest. Using an intensely muted palette, Gibbons offers this little gem of an oil painting that he painted on site. You are invited to his Signature Gallery in the Old 1926 Vicarage, 140 NE Alder St., Toledo. Stop by for a complimentary glass of Oregon wine; Vicarage blend gourmet coffee and Tillamook cheeses from Noon to 5:00pm Saturday and Sunday of 1st Weekend. Visit with the nationally recognized artist and founder of the Yaquina River Museum of Art, a non-profit dedicated to bringing art to the community. The regular Gallery hours are Wed.- Sun. Noon to 5:00pm. Please visit www.michaelgibbonsart.net . Michael Gibbons work is also shown at Michael Parsons Fine Arts Gallery, 716 SW Madison, Portland, OR 97205 MPARSONS20@hotmail.com for more information.

Joining the Museum again for First Weekend is composer and pianist Gabriel Salcedo who will be playing music on keyboard for sweethearts in the Schoolhouse. Gabriel will be offering CDs of his music through his company, True Love Music. Volunteers at the Museum will serve chocolates & wine to gallery-goers.
