Muralist and all around artist Casey McEneny has scored another accolade for coming up with another visual invitation to visitors to south Lincoln County. Not content to do just the Waldport Centennial Mural visible on a downtown building for those traveling north, McEneny, a Newport High School art teacher, has produced a very attractive “Welcome to Waldport” sign. It was recently dedicated by the Chamber of Commerce (which paid for it), the Waldport City Council (which commissioned McEneny) and townspeople who admired it during its unveiling at a spot on Highway 101 across from Patterson State Park.
Admirers contend the beauty of the sign is contained in its clean lines, simple message and attractive layout of what Waldport is all about – great fishing, sightseeing, boating and dining, and all Where the Forest Meets the Sea.
Another sign is expected to be created and erected at the north end of Waldport – date to be announced.

A Beaver Creek area woman was injured Wednesday morning when her Lincoln Navigator left South Beaver Creek Road at mile post 4 and rolled over onto its top, becoming wedged at the bottom of a gully. Central Coast and Seal Rock Fire Rescue managed to get rescue equipment into place to pull the woman out from under the wreck. As you can see they had very little room to work with.
The woman was placed in a Central Coast Fire Ambulance where paramedics were evaluating her. It did not leave the scene immediately and no medical helicopter was summoned.
Cause of the accident is being investigated by the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.

Newport High School art teacher Casey McEneny is working on two projects for folks in Waldport. The first is a new mural that is being put on the side of new public restrooms on Star Street. The other project is a large “Welcome to Waldport” sign that will be placed alongside Highway 101, just south of town, in the Ocean Hills area. Chamber officials say they hope McEneny will have that particular project done and ready to dedicate by early September.
