Newport Symphony Music and the beauty of the Central Oregon Coast….
Calling all Photographers from Lincoln County!
The Newport Symphony invites residents of the central Oregon coast to participate in their Coastal Vistas concert by submitting photographs of the region which will be incorporated into its concert in September. The photos will be displayed on screens above the stage while the orchestra plays music by Aaron Copland. The deadline to submit photos is May 15, so act now. To upload your photos and for more information, visit their website at NewportSymphony.org and click on Coastal Vistas.
Photos should cover either of these themes: iconic images of the Oregon Coast and photos of people who live and work here. What are your favorite things about living on the Oregon coast? Spectacular beaches? Our fishing fleet? Landmarks? Architecture? Nature? Wildlife? Activities? Food? Sports? Arts? Fun? People? Submit as many photos as you would like – newly created and ones that you may have taken years ago.

Newport City Council in process of banning single-use plastic shopping bags.
Dear Newport City Council And Mayor Sawyer:
My gratitude goes to you guys for making the earth better by getting it clean and healthy. My class also thanks you for doing this too. The plastic bag ban has been part of our goal for the whole year, now we have finally done it!
It’s important to me because I care about animals and they’re part of this plastic impact. Our class will stick to this subject for the rest of the year. Maybe even some of us, including me, will keep it for our whole lives.
I have learned how good it feels when you know we’re helping to save the earth. I have done what no one thought could be done by a 5th grader. Thanks to you guys that happened.
So I just wanted to thank you.
Through my speaking and essays, I have banned plastic bags with your help so this is a very big thank you cause you guys deserve it so very much. I’m glad i was partnered with you for this term. Hopefully we meet and figure out other problems later on in life or in the next year or two. Maybe I will even be on the city council with you guys!
