Wanted: Space to share in a Newport house (or large condo) to accommodate “back-to-hometown” news reporter
Since Newport is so filled up with visitors and renters I’m looking for a house, condo or apartment that has an empty room. I always pay my rent on time and I’m also very helpful around the house. I am a mature male that would like to help someone pay their rent or mortgage. I have a clean record and more than half the town already knows my name. I still have my Lincoln County internet News Website – NewsLincolnCounty.com which I operate every day of the week which I enjoy.
If you’d like more information on me please call 541-351-1408. I’d be more than happy to talk with you.

The Second Surfrider 🏖❄Winter Beach Cleanup❄🏖 was a Huge Success! 🎉
Volunteers came out in droves and were greeted with sunny skies and beautiful weather to help clean our local beaches on Saturday, January 8. Over 100 volunteers dropped off about 1000 pounds of debris at local surf shops, ZuhG Life, Pura Vida, and South Beach Surf Shop.
Thanks to all the volunteers, our participating surf shops, and to North Lincoln Sanitary and Thompson’s Sanitary who donated their disposal services.
We will have another prize drawing for January participants, and everyone who has helped over the past two months will be entered in the grand prize drawing after the last cleanup in February for a chance to win a 7’6″ Lib Tech Pickup Stick Surfboard donated by 10 Barrel Brewing!
Large amounts of styrofoam from floating docks has been washed out to sea by the recent rains. This debris ends up on the beach. Surfrider encourages everyone to take a bag to the beach whenever they can and pick up trash.
The last cleanup in Surfrider’s Winter Series and last chance to enter the drawing will be on February 12.
