Road and Driveway to the rescue, again. Highway 20 six miles east of Eddyville.

Newport’s “get ‘er done” paving company Road and Driveway has struck again six miles east of Eddyville as they have rescued Highway 20 from a fast moving Yaquina River that undercut the highway due to heavy rains that hammered the area earlier in the week. Highway 20 is once again open to normal traffic in one-third the time given by ODOT who gave the repair contract to the Newport company. Here’s the story from the Oregonian.

Alaska Senator wants more federal funds pledged to Japanese Tsunami debris clean up along the U.S. West Coast

Agate Beach, August 2, 2012

An Alaskan U.S. Senator says he’s embarrassed that the Japanese government has offered five million dollars to help the U.S. clean up the debris from the March 2011 Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami, which is many times the amount pledged by the U.S. Government. And so he wants Uncle Sam to do a 3-to-1 match of $15,000,000 to reflect what’s is truly needed to cope with what is expected to be much more of the debris coming ashore this winter.

Old and young U.S. warriors gather at Pearl Harbor to commemorate “A Day of Infamy,” December 7th, 1941.

An exploding USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941

Seventy-one years ago, in a brazen act of what we now call international terrorism, the then Empire of Japan struck the United States at a point closest to Japan and killed a lot of military and civilians and knocked out the U.S. Naval Fleet in the Pacific. Every year since, those who were there or who were affected by it gather to commemorate what then President Franklin Roosevelt declared was “A day that shall live infamy.”

The latest observance at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was carried out today as in all years past and likely for many more years hence.

Photographer Ken Gagne shooting along the Yachats River

Ken Gagne photos

Yachats area photographer Ken Gagne is out along the Yachats River perfecting his mastery of his new Nikon P510 camera. He captured this shot of a river otter anticipating his next “cuisine au natural; “Salmon Carcass a la parfaitement âgé avec rivière verts.” Nearby, a no longer endangered bald eagle enviously surveys the scene pondering what left-overs might eventually be in the offing.

Ken Gagne is using one of the latest in a series of long zoom cameras that are now coming onto the market that don’t require that you drag along a shopping cart full of lenses in order to get the picture you want without having to get in a boat or walk a mile and then arrive to discover the picture has lumbered off, flown away or finished its meal and slipped beneath the waves. With these new cameras you just point, focus and ‘click.’ The P510 and others on the market like the Canon SX50, are really telescopes with attached record devices. But of course if you aspire to work for National Geographic Magazine you won’t get by with such photographic trifles as the P510 or the SX50. Spending $20,000 on the proper equipment will just get you started. Hence the attractiveness of these point and shoot goodies that bring the world up close and personal on a limited budget.
