The phones at Lincom 9-1-1 were ringing off the hook this evening at 9:40 with reports of very loud explosions emanating from the vicinity of NW 55th. Calls came in from throughout the area that explosions were occurring and were clearly heard all the way south to the Coast Guard Lighthouse at Government Park.
Police are on scene investigating. They say it’s a large party.
A Washington state man was pinned between two SUV’s at Willers Motel at Case and 101 in Newport this evening. A witness said she saw a white SUV rolling backwards in the parking lot with a man behind it shoving hard, trying to stop it before it hit another car. But the SUV kept rolling and pinned the man to another vehicle. She said the victim wiggled free but fell to the ground. Assistant Fire Chief Rob Murphy happened to be in the area, heard the call and was on scene in seconds. He helped to keep the victim properly positioned until paramedics could arrive. Upon their arrival, paramedics and fire/rescue got the man onto a gurney for a very short ride to PCH, just a block and a half away. The victim was alert and talking the entire time but obviously in a lot of pain.
Newport Police said it appears that the vehicle’s transmission may have malfunctioned, allowing the vehicle to roll backward although in gear. No apparent damage was done to the other vehicle.

Colleges and universities across the country are bulging at the seams for a good reason. It’s the old saying about “The old world is gone but the new one hasn’t been born quite yet.” That’s why so many Americans are taking time out from their unemployment or normal routines to return to school to learn higher end job skills or get totally re-trained for up and coming new industries and services. And Oregon Coast Community College is doing its part to help local residents be better prepared for the new world of employment emerging all around us and the country.
Here is a list of classes being offered at Oregon Coast Community College for the Fall Semester. Click here!

Gaston, OR artist Lynne Taylor to speak at Coastal Arts Guild Luncheon, Thursday, September 1st.
The first Thursday of each month, the Guild holds a luncheon for members and guests at the Visual Arts Center from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM and invites Lincoln County residents interested in the arts to attend.
Always fascinated by the beauty of nature, science and spirituality, Lynne initially chose the science path, studying biology at the University of Buffalo and at Binghamton University graduate school, receiving a Biology and Teaching Master’s Degree. Eventually, wanting to be more available to her growing son, she changed her career to the artistic path. She continued to be inspired by the mysteries of the natural world, and by integrating science with spirituality, and she reflects these ideas in her paintings. Lynne often creates paintings based on an insight, a mental picture from a visioning meditation, a scientific conjecture, or a dream. She has also been working on a series involving her Celtic ancestry, using Celtic symbols and the rose, her birth flower.
Each painting has the goal of giving the viewer a new way to look at the universe, either from a tiny corner, or an expanded vision. Uniqueness is essential. Her collection includes Celtic Rose heritage paintings, paintings that are incorporations of science, spirituality and ancient history, dream image spiritual pieces, environmental statements, and the integration of all peoples: a vision
for world peace.
