A 46 year old Waldport man was arrested this week after finding him under the influence of methamphetamine and marijuana with a five year old child in a home on Highway 34, near milepost 3. The discovery followed a request by a citizen that the Sheriff’s Office check on the welfare of Addam Martin, 46, and the child. The reporting party indicated that Martin had left the child unattended for an disclosed period of time.
Upon arrival, deputies found that Martin was in possession of methamphetamine and various drug paraphernalia that were easily accessible to the child.
The child was turned over to a legal guardian and Martin was transported to the Lincoln County Jail where he was booked for possession of methamphetamine, child neglect and endangering the welfare of a child. His bail was set at $80,000.
What may have been a Thanksgiving party at a vacation rental house near Waldport turned dangerous Thursday afternoon as party go’ers gathered on an outside viewing deck at 2601 NW Parker Avenue, in Bayshore. As the group walked out onto the deck through a sliding glass door, they were struck by the beautiful sunset that was unfolding in front of them. Then suddenly the deck collapsed, sending everyone down 15 to 20 feet to the ground. The deck broke into pieces as it hit the ground, sending a number of people sprawling – reports saying one suffered a broken arm, another a fractured pelvis, another a head wound. There may have been others.
Two were transported by ground ambulance to the hospital in Newport. No official word yet on any other. Two hours after the incident the house was dark and locked with only the front porch light on.
Authorities are expected to investigate why the deck collapsed.

Friends of Margie Owen wanted to make sure that all of Waldport knew it was Margie’s birthday today. Margie’s friends pulled this audacious maneuver (which some might have called “for the birds”) by sneaking out in the middle of the night and flocking Margie’s front yard with pink flamingos, along with a sign containing a short message…”You’ve been flocked.”
Margie told News Lincoln County that her husband Colin arose Monday morning to see the tropical fauna in the yard. Not revealing exactly what it was (he was “in on it”), he asked her to “come see.” And there they were, rising from the Oregon deep-green turf, along with a sign reading “You’ve been flocked.” In this case, it meant “Happy Birthday.”
The event prompted many phone calls to the Owen home with “Happy Birthday” wishes coming from the four corners of Waldport. Margie said “It was a very nice way for me to start my birthday. I’ve never heard of anyone being ‘flocked’ on their birthday before. It is a bit bizarre, but I guess Waldport needs something bizarre to happen every now and then just to keep things interesting.”
Husband Colin said his neighbor (who has guns) came over during the morning and mentioned that he’d heard talking outside during the night. He said he was tempted to call the cops, but when things died back down he just went back to sleep. One of Margie’s friends, who masterminded the ‘flocking,’ revealed that she had called the Sheriff’s Office before they descended on Margie’s lawn. She told 9-1-1 dispatchers about the caper and asked that nobody show up with guns drawn. Deputies kindly obliged with their conspicuous absence.
Margie said it was great fun – a memorable birthday morning. She said she heard that there are those who are plotting to put these birds to work for good causes in the Waldport area. With that in mind, the birds were plucked from Margie’s lawn and turned over to Waldport Mayor Susan Woodruff who apparently has “plans” for them. There are rumors that these tropical fowl may be used on behalf of charitable organizations who would perform a similar pink eruption on lawns in front of homes and businesses, attached to which will be a ‘ransom note,’ indicating they would be removed only on condition that a donation be made to said charitable organization or worthy cause.
So Waldport, you can’t say you haven’t been warned.
Firefighters are enroute to a report of toxic fumes detected at the Angels Job Corps Camp. Students at the camp say the fumes smell poisonous and are coming from an old nearby sawmill. They say somebody is burning something at the mill and it smells toxic, suggesting a health hazard.
