The Edge Art Gallery and TLC Federal Credit Union recently joined forces to raise funds for Lincoln County cancer patients. Custom blown glass pink pumpkins, created by the artists of The Edge Art Gallery, were available for purchase at TLC Federal Credit Union in Newport and Lincoln City throughout the months of October and November. A total of $1,535 was raised.
100% of the proceeds raised have been split between PCHD Foundation Women’s Cancer Fund and the NLH Foundation’s Snowflake Mammography Fund.
PCHD Foundation Women’s Cancer Fund is dedicated primarily to assist qualifying women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer or who are suspected of having breast cancer. However, the fund can help women with other forms of cancer as needed. Local patients receive prescription, transportation, and medical bill assistance; mammograms; nutritional supplements needed as the result of chemotherapy; and post-mastectomy undergarments.
The Snowflake Mammography fund at NLH Foundation assists patients with established financial need to receive breast cancer assessment, diagnosis, and/or support services. The foundation also provides informational and educational programs about breast health, breast cancer, and other cancers that mainly occur in women.

Carol Miley’s photo of this Red-Breasted Sapsucker proves that even in the watery depths of an Oregon winter there are momentary eruptions of color, as in this apple orchard in Otis on New Year’s Day. Carol told us that this little bird very graciously interrupted its lunch to pose for the camera, even if the camera was a long way away. It must have known that the world much admires its beautiful feathery colors and ‘stick-to-itness’ at eeking out a meal in the wilds of Oregon.
Again we here at NewsLincolnCounty.com admire the photographic skills that are demonstrated so often here at Lincoln County’s homesite for central coast news. Thanks to all those who contribute, and thanks in advance for those who are yet to join, in visualizing the magic of living along Oregon’s majestic coastline.
Newport Police say Redding Police in northern California have arrested a man wanted on charges of abducting a Newport woman just before Christmas. The woman managed to break free from her abductor/boyfriend in Redding, CA and managed to call her family.
The woman was reported missing by her family Saturday, December 24th saying that she was last seen with her boyfriend Thomas Acosta, 50, of Seattle. Newport Police and a special crime team was assembled and they quickly learned that Acosta may have taken the woman to a town in California.
Then the break they needed came through with the woman managing to free herself from her captor, and managing to call her parents. She said she was in Redding, CA and that she’d been taken there against her will and that she had been sexually assaulted.
Newport Police and Redding Police detectives worked together to track down Acosta who was spotted in a Redding shopping mall. Officers arrested him without incident and booked him into the Shasta County Jail where he was being held for Newport Police.
Once returned to Newport, police say Acosta will be booked on various sex-related charges including rape, sexual abuse, coercion, strangulation, assault, menacing and unlawful use of a weapon. There may be more charges develop as the case unfolds. The FBI has placed him on a million dollar hold at the Shasta County Jail pending his extradition back to Oregon and to the the Lincoln County Jail.
