This event is sponsored each year by the Depoe Bay Chamber of Commerce and hosted by the owners of The Spouting Horn. All candidates running for national, state, county and local (Depoe Bay) office are invited.
Each candidate will be allowed two minutes to speak. Candidates are encouraged also to mingle and visit informally with those attending. The Master of Ceremonies will be central coast radio personality Roger Robertson. Refreshments will be served.

Power to a good chunk of southwest Newport, north of the bridge, was knocked out shortly before midnight Friday night. The outage hugged the coast side of Highway 101 from Government Park to about 15th. Some traffic lights on 101 were affected including at 11th.
Newport Police foot patrols in the Nye Beach Turnaround area kept a watchful eye on businesses and autos in the area to discourage “crimes of opportunity” until the power was restored.
Central Lincoln PUD crews reported the outage was caused by a failure at a substation. Within an hour, the power was coming back on.
Newport Police recently received information that a convicted child sex offender from Florida had moved to Newport and that he was living with a woman and her two young girls under a fake name.
The report said Patrick Maki, 37 from extreme southeast Florida, had been convicted of sexual child abuse and that he was on parole after serving time in prison. But right after his release and registering as a sex offender, police say he left Florida without telling anyone where he was going, a violation of his parole. They said Maki traveled to Hawaii for a time, then returned to the mainland, finally settling in Newport where he worked for a while as a charter boat deck hand while living with a woman who has two little girls.
When initially confronted about who he was, Newport Police say Maki claimed to be Jared Newman. But when pressed on information police had been given about Maki, he finally admitted to who he was.
In the meantime, authorities in Monroe County report Maki has become a suspect in other sexual offenses and that additional charges against him are pending.
Maki is being held in the Lincoln County Jail on charges of failing to register as a sex offender and for giving false information to a police officer. His bail was set at $50,000.
Newport Police are calling out to the public, that if anyone knows anything about Maki, who possibly used the names of Jared Newman or Patrick McFinn, to please contact police at 541-574-3348. Ask for Officer Garrett or Detective France.

South Lincoln Resources includes Waldport Food Share, Adventist Clothing Share, Furniture and appliance Giveaway, Durable Medical Equipment Giveaway, Holiday Food Baskets, South County Needy Children’s Christmas Program and the Emergency Voucher Assistance Program. The current programs share limited space in the old Seventh-day Adventist Church building which has more problems than just being too small.
