We’re going to need a bigger screen
You are more likely to get trampled to death by a cow, meet your doom by being swallowed up by a sink hole or do mortal damage to yourself or others while playing with fireworks, than you are to be eaten by a shark. Some even say your odds are higher of being struck by space junk than of being bumped off by these denizens of the deep. Yet these charismatic creatures, which are critically important to the ocean food web, have been vilified and hunted ruthlessly.
Hatfield Marine Science Center Professor Dr. Taylor Chapple will make a case for sharks at the monthly meeting of the Newport Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation on Thursday, Oct. 15.
The presentation will be on Zoom, starting at 6:30 pm.
Chapple has been working with sharks around the world for nearly 20 years. Applying cutting-edge technology, rigorous science and various media platforms, he is trying to help change how we perceive sharks and the show the reality behind the hype.
The presentation will include tales from his research on white sharks in California, Cape Cod and South Africa.
The presentation is free, but Newport Surfrider is asking for donations to help fire victims in Lincoln County who lost their homes and have been left without resources for recovery. The money raised will go to the Echo Mountain Fire Relief fund.

2020 Oregon Tourism Industry Stakeholder Survey - Travel Oregon

Do you have a stake in Oregon Coast tourism?

Make your voice heard, complete this survey from the Oregon Coast Visitors Association and forward this to others before the deadline of Oct. 30th, 2020 if you are concerned about economic growth, over-tourism, workforce investments, protecting the environment, building more tourism infrastructure (trails, kayak launches, etc.) or all of the above.

Your feedback becomes part of the official record at the state level (Travel Oregon) and for Oregon Coast Visitors Association (OCVA) at the coast-region, which determines how funding is allocated across our departments, programs and projects over the next two years.

2020 has presented new and dynamic challenges that require innovative problem-solving and leadership. Your responses will directly inform our investments and solutions to our shared coastal challenges.

We know it's long (15 minutes start to finish), but your feedback is absolutely critical to ensure investments made in OCVA's 2021 - 2023 Regional Cooperative Tourism Program plan are on target and address your concerns. The survey is available in English and Spanish.

View the results of the 2018 Oregon Tourism Stakeholder Survey, which guided the development of our current 2019-2021 Regional Cooperative Tourism Program plan and all of our active projects listed in our RCTP Dashboard.

Thank you for your time, diligence and commitment to the Oregon Coast.

Respectfully and Gratefully,

The OCVA Team

As work begins to develop a 2021-25 strategic plan that is responsive to Oregon’s ever-dynamic tourism economy, Travel Oregon and the state’s seven official regional destination management organizations, have launched a stakeholder survey (available in Spanish and English) to seek input from com...

Even before the fires have gone out on Echo Mountain, a team of Lincoln City community members is looking to serve those impacted most by the fires: those without insurance.
​“I’m already hearing that up to 50 percent of the people that have lost their homes may have been uninsured,” said Dan Clanton, president of the Echo Mountain Relief Fund. “In the past, I’ve been in that situation, and I’d like to help however I can.”
​Working with First Interstate Bank in Lincoln City, the Echo Mountain Relief Fund is registered with the state of Oregon and the IRS as a nonprofit. Staffed entirely by volunteers, even the associated banking and legal fees are handled at no cost to the fund. “We want to make sure every dime goes to the people that need it,” said Clanton, owner of The Grill 1646 in Lincoln City.
​Serving as officers of the nonprofit are vice-president Hannah Katz of Coldwell Banker; secretary Majalise Tolan, Director of Secondary Education for the Lincoln County School District; and treasurer Bethany Grace Howe, a former Taft High 7-12 teacher and head of a transgender health nonprofit organization. Also serving on the board are retired Lincoln City Police Department Sgt. Oscar Escalante; Kelly Ellis, head of Lincoln City Young Life; Heather Hatton, Public Relations Manager for Chinook Winds Casino Resort; Kim Nesbit, long-time Neotsu resident; and Oscar Ramirez, a local entrepreneur.
​Still in its formative stages, the group is nonetheless actively looking for community groups and individuals who are interested in creating and hosting fundraisers. “Even though there’s a small group of us running this organization, we want any person in North Lincoln County who has a means or a desire to help to consider contacting us,” Clanton said. “Even if it’s just connecting like-minded people, anything we can do to help raise funds for our friends and neighbors is something we’d love to hear about.”
​Deposits can be made at any First Interstate Bank to the Echo Mountain Fire Relief Fund, Tax I.D. No. 75-3034665, Oregon registry no. 171985196. For more information about financial donations, or interest in working with the Echo Mountain Relief Fund on a fundraiser, please text Bethany Grace Howe at 541-921-0408, or by emailing [email protected].

We know that many of our local area residents have a lot of questions and are displaced at this time. We will be working over the next couple hours to let you know of local resources for re-connecting loved ones, checking on evacuation statuses, etc. For now, we offer this photographic "Proof of Life" for Lincoln City structures that were rumored to have burned down. As of this post, no Lincoln City structures have been lost to fire. Our hearts go out to our neighbors in Otis and Rose Lodge who have suffered loss due to the recent and ongoing fires. Lincoln City is still under moderate smoke and without power and, for many customers, cell service. Please continue to abide by evacuation orders and be safe!
(Faith Baptist Church is also still standing, but currently being used as an active staging area and unavailable for photos at this time.) #NorthLincolnFire #Thinredlineheros
