NEWPORT — It’s coming up for 10 years since I set out on the trip ‘round the world that would lead me to meet my wife and move to the Oregon Coast. All in all, it was probably the best decision I ever made but it very nearly didn’t happen. I almost bought a houseboat instead. Unlike those in America, houseboats in the UK are designed to travel the canal network and are about six feet wide and maybe 35 feet long. I’ve always been fascinated by small homes and the ingenious ways that people manage to make them work. So imagine my joy upon seeing that the Nye Beach Writers Series is welcoming Charles Finn — a man who is not only a writer of micro-essays but also a builder of micro-homes. The 8-foot-by-12–foot Montana cabin in which he lived and wrote for ďŹ ve years makes the houseboat I had my eye on look downright palatial by comparison. Even cooler is his Potomac cabin (pictured), which manages to be about the size of a postage stamp and still somehow squeeze in a second oor. “Small rooms or dwellings set the mind in the right path,â€? Leonardo Da Vincio said, “large ones cause it to go astray.â€? If true, expect a focused presentation indeed from Finn on Saturday, Nov. 16. See page 6 for the full story.

LINCOLN CITY — Live in Lincoln City for a few years and you will ďŹ nd that your house ďŹ lls up with glass oats. People use them as door prizes, rae prizes, party favors — you name it. But, having seen a real, live oat fairy at work has rekindled my desire to hunt down a oat in its natural habitat: the town’s seven and a half miles of sandy beaches. See page 14.

It’s a tale with a Twist

Charles Dickens never made it as far west as Oregon on either of his tours of the US, but if he had, the result might have looked a little bit like the work of Portland author Christopher Lord. Lord will visit Manzanita on Saturday, Nov. 16, to read from “The Edwin Drood Murders,” the second in his series of mysteries set in the fictional Oregon town of Dickens Junction — a place populated with eccentric, some might say Dickensian, characters. The most normal person in town seems to be Simon Alastair, antiquarian book dealer and part time sleuth. The book catches up with Alastair as he attempts to convince his boyfriend, Zach, to move in with him while also organizing the latest convention of Droodians — enthusiasts of Dickens’ last, unfinished work. And, of course, there is a murder to complicate matters. “This book has everything a great mystery should,” wrote Kerry Hammond in a review for CriminalElement.com. “It has great characters, a murder or two, and a very intriguing story of why and how...It reminded me of the traditional, Golden Age British mysteries that I enjoy so much.” The Nov. 16 reading will take place at 7 pm at The Hoffman Center, 594 Laneda Avenue. Admission for the evening is $7. After the reading and Q&A, there will be an open mic, where up to nine local writers will read five minutes of their original work.

Helping writers find their voice

As JD Salinger has proved, being a great writer does not necessarily go hand in hand with being a people person. And, while the author of “The Catcher in the Rye” might have been able to get by without uttering a word in public for the last 30 years of his life — most authors actually have to get out there and blow their own trumpet. If the thought of stepping to a microphone turns your legs to jelly and your mouth to dust, help is at hand. Author and speaking coach Holly Lorincz is offering a one-day workshop for writers who want to work on their public speaking skills. The Saturday, Nov. 16, seminar, entitled “AUTHOR>SPEAKER” will focus on three marketing elements: the pitch appointment; the radio/TV/newspaper interview; and public readings. It will also give participants the opportunity to receive constructive and helpful feedback on their individual material and speaking abilities. Lorincz has spoken in front of audiences thousands of times, sometimes as an instructor, sometimes as an author reading from her works, sometimes as a guest speaker. As part of her job at MacGregor Literary, she works with authors to prepare their manuscripts and pitches. The seminar will take place at The Hoffman Center in Manzanita from 10 am to 2 pm and costs $59. For more information, or to sign up, go to http:// literaryconsulting.com.

Tales from a man of few words The twin arts of living little and writing short will be at the center of a Saturday, Nov. 16, appearance by woodsman and essayist Charles Finn as part of the Nye Beach Writers Series. Finn, editor of High Desert Journal, is author of a collection of micro-essays, “Wild Delicate Seconds: 29 Wildlife Encounters: Black Bears to Bumble Bees,” which details chance encounters with animals, birds and insects. Before joining the High Desert Journal, Finn taught English as a foreign language for three years in Hiroshima, Japan; hid out in the woods of British Columbia for 10; and spent five years in Montana, much of it living and writing in a self-built 8-foot-by-12–foot cabin with no running water or electricity. A self-taught woodworker and proponent of “living little,” he founded A Room of One’s Own, salvaging reclaimed lumber from old barns and buildings to create customized one-room wood cabins or “microhomes.” See pictures of his creations at http://finncharles.wix.com/aroom-of-ones-own. Originally from Vermont, Finn now lives in Missoula, Montana, with his wife, Joyce Mphande-Finn, and their two cats, Pushkin and Lutsa. His essays and poetry have appeared in a wide variety of journals, anthologies, newspapers and consumer magazines, including The Sun, Writers on the Range, Big Sky Journal, Montana Magazine and many others.

The Nov. 16 presentation begins at 7 pm at the Newport Visual Arts Center, 777 NW Beach Drive, and will be followed by an open mic for local writers. General admission is $6; students are admitted free. For more information, go to www.writersontheedge.org.

Travel — unraveled in Newport Anyone who has ever dreamed of becoming a travel writer can get some tips on how to turn the dream into reality when Kim Cooper Findling comes to Newport on Tuesday, Nov. 19, as part of the ongoing Writers on Writing series offered by the Coast Chapter of Willamette Writers. Findling’s workshop “Travel Writing for Fun and Profit,” aims to help participants learn to think like a travel writer, pitch ideas to editors and break in to the travel market as well as showing them how to bring places and experiences to life on the page. Participants should come prepared for hands-on writing activities.

Findling, the editor of Central Oregon Magazine, was born in Seattle and grew up on the Oregon Coast. She earned a B.A. in Psychology from University of Oregon and a M.S. in Natural Resource Education from Oregon State University. Her work has appeared in magazines including Travel Oregon, Northwest Travel and Bend Living and she has also authored two books: “Day Trips from Portland: Getaway Ideas for the Local Traveler” and “Chance of Sun: An Oregon Memoir,” a chapter from which won the 2011 Oregon Quarterly Northwest Perspectives Essay Contest.

6 • oregoncoastTODAY.com • facebook.com/oregoncoasttoday • november 15, 2013

Findling has also written chapters for books including “Best Places to Kiss in the Northwest,” “Day in the Life: Central Oregon,” and “Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Magic of Mothers and Daughters,” She is currently working on a book marrying memoir and travel, a collection of essays and surviving midlife. She lives in Bend with her husband and two daughters. The free Nov. 19 workshop will run from 7 to 8:30 pm in the McEntee meeting room of Newport Public Library, 35 NW Nye Street. The Coast Chapter of Willamette Writers meets on the third Tuesday of each

month at 7 pm at the Newport Public Library. In 2014, meeting dates will typically be the third Sunday of each month at 2 pm. For more information, call Theresa Wisner at 541270-3870 or go to http:// willamettewriters.com/coast.

Twisted Snout Brewery is a marriage made in heaven. Brewmaster Stu Miller dreams up new beers and turns them into reality while his wife, Becky, uses her artistic talents to bring the brews to life. Anyone who wants to see how that creative partnership is faring need look no further than the brewery’s latest offering, Cardinal Sin — a pale ale brewed with juniper berries, pomegranate, Chinese Five Spice and honey. Becky has created a limitededition sticker to mark the ale, showing the brewery’s pig mascot clad in robes and wearing a galero, the distinctive, wide-brimmed cardinal’s hat. As well as celebrating select seasonal releases, like the upcoming Holy Hog spiced ale, Twisted Snout stickers serve as a memento for the brewery’s specials events, like Oktoberfest, Redhead Day and even the season premiere of “The Walking Dead,” in which the friendly pig is transformed into a zombie. Beer fans wondering what pigs have to do with fine craft ales need only look next door for their answer. The Twisted Snout Brewery is right next to the Millers’ other hospitality venture, Pig Feathers BBQ, whose flying pig mascot represents the combination of two barbecue mainstays — chicken wings

and pork ribs. Becky said the restaurant serves as the center of operations for the couple, allowing them each to operate spin-off ventures; in her case, a studio/gallery in Toledo’s Uptown Arts District; and in Stu’s case, the brewery he’d always dreamed of. “The brewery is his dream of many, many, many years,” she said. “As long as I’ve known him, we’ve had the smell of brewing in our kitchen.” Stu started brewing in 1982 while studying at Chico State University, where his psychology professor ran the local home brewing store. “We got to talking and he got me into home brewing,” Stu said, adding that, with very few microbreweries around, opportunities for distinctive craft ales were few and far between. So, did that psych professor have a PhD in brew-ology to match his academic qualifications? Suffice it to say that a few of his former brew buddies went on to start a little operation called the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company.

“Stu obviously learned from some people who knew what they were doing,” Becky said. Since the brewery opened in 2011, Stu has put his 30-plus years of brewing know-how to work — with a smooth Gateway Golden Ale and a hop-laden India Pale Ale among the brewery’s first offerings. Since then, Stu has expanded his year round range to include pigthemed standards such as Wilbur’s White Wheat, the Honey Oatmeal Porker and the Redheaded Step Hog (named in honor of Becky’s ginger locks). Working with his eldest son, Rob, as junior brewer, Stu then turned his attention to seasonal brews, including the Hoppy Hog (a session IPA), Raspberry Squeal and Chocolate Snout, but quickly hit upon an unexpected snag. “We started out with a concept that we were going to have five or six standard ales that were always produced and then about six seasonals,” he said. “The way things worked out, our seasonals became so popular … we

soon found out that we really have two seasonal and everything else is nine or 10 beers that just stay.” With tap space at premium in the brewery, the Millers are expanding the Twisted Snout’s reach. Its beers are now available on tap at the Side Door Café in Gleneden Beach, Muggly’s in Toledo, Suds ‘n Suds in Corvallis, and Cecil’s Dirty Apron in Newport, while growler-fill stations in Lincoln City, Eugene and Corvallis give people the chance to fill up on 64 fluid ounces of liquid joy to go. But visiting the brewery itself has a number of advantages. Firstly, you can pair your beers with the full Pig Feathers menu. Second, the brewery subscribes to the Pac-12 channel and offers several different appetizer specials available only during football games, shown in highdefinition on their big screen TV. Third, you can reap the benefits of promotions like National Pomegranate Month, which sees Cardinal Sin on special throughout November. Also throughout November and in honor

of elk hunting season, the brewery is offering happy hour prices all day to anyone who turns up in camouflage or hunter orange, as well as anyone who comes in unshaven. Becky said the deal also applies to anyone willing to don a fake moustache. “I don’t care,” she said. “If you’ve got facial hair, you get the deal.” December 14 will see the Millers throw a Christmas party to celebrate Toledo’s Hometown Holiday, inviting patrons to make their mark by adding a unique ornament to the brewery tree, with a $250 Pig Feathers gift card as prize for the most outlandish, creative and unique. “Any time you open a business and it’s all about take, it’s not going to work,” Becky said, adding: “Giving is always part of our business and always has been.” Twisted Snout Brewery is located at the south end of Main Street, Toledo, and is open from 11 am to 8 pm Sunday to Thursday and from 11 am to 9 pm (or later) on Fridays and Saturdays.

A trail through time Yachats’ newest forest hike connects the community with its past Story & photos by Patrick Alexander Oregon Coast TODAY

T

“Grandmother Spruce” straddling Mitchell Creek

The Amanda Trail Stretching from the south end of Yachats all the way to the summit of Cape Perpetua, The Amanda Trail is named in honor of a blind woman of the Coos Tribe whose suffering has come to epitomize the injustices of the coast’s reservation years. The common law wife of a white man, with whom she had a child, Amanda was forcibly relocated north to a reservation in the Yachats area after her husband refused to protect her by formalizing the marriage. Separated from her daughter, Amanda was force-marched over Cape Perpetua, with the jagged rocks tearing at her bare feet as she struggled to find her footing. Her fate — and that of her daughter — remain unknown. Today, walkers can pay tribute at a statue of Amanda, located at Photo by Joanne Kittel the point where the trail shifts from a moderate hike to a strenuous, two-and-a-half mile climb to the summit of Cape Perpetua. The Amanda statue

here’s more to a good trail than trees overhead, dirt underfoot and a destination at the end. As well as connecting one place to another, trails can also help connect us to our past and tell us stories about who we are. With this year’s opening of the Ya’Xaik trail, Yachats has a new story to tell. First, pronunciation: YA-hike — with a gargled ‘h’ as if clearing your throat. The word comes from the Yakonan dialect of the Alsea language spoken by Native Americans who made their home in the Yachats area for thousands of years prior to the arrival of white settlers. Joanne Kittel, one of the many people instrumental in establishing the new trail, said Ya’Xaik was the only known name for the Alsea people’s village near the Yachats River, one of several the Tribe would use on a seasonal basis. “Food was so plentiful that they didn’t have to wander over large geographical areas to sustain themselves,” she said. “So they remained very self sufficient for thousands of years until 90 percent of them were killed by white people’s diseases before any of them ever saw a white person.” The trail, which opened in June, combines with the existing oceanfront 804 Trail and the Gerdemann Botanic Preserve to form a 1.1-mile loop encompassing rocky shore, vibrant gardens and towering forest. Kittel said the Ya’Xaik trail is another step toward honoring the area’s Native American heritage, a process that began almost 30 years ago when plans were first laid for another pathway, The Amanda Trail, connecting Yachats with Cape Perpetua (see sidebar). “The Amanda Trail to the south depicts the prison camp years and the near genocide of the Coos, Lower Umpqua, Siuslaw and Alsea Indians,” she said. “This north side will speak to the First Nation’s history.” Brian Fowler, an Oregon State Parks ranger for the Central Coast area, said the Ya’Xaik trail dips far enough into the Siuslaw National Forest to give walkers a good look at some second-growth conifers including hemlock and some beautiful specimens of Sitka spruce. “That will give you that awe-inspiring moment walking along the trail,” he said. Fowler said walkers should keep their eyes peeled for birds including the downy or hairy woodpecker, various types of thrush, and groups of either goldencrowned or ruby-crowned kinglets. From the trailhead at the end of Diversity Drive, the trail starts reasonably steep with a flight of 10 steps, before leveling off into an easy grade with fresh

10 • oregoncoastTODAY.com • facebook.com/oregoncoasttoday • november 15, 2013

pine chips underfoot. Passing by a babbling stream, the trail leads through an airy, fern-filled clearing before climbing again and coming back around on itself in a broad loop on the descent. A set of stepping stones takes walkers across the stream on the way to a T junction, where a right turn delivers them to the gate of the Gerdemann Botanic Preserve. The pristine gardens present three and half acres packed with colorful, native species combining to fill the air with a fresh and welcoming aroma. The path follows Mitchell Creek downhill, taking walkers past massive, prehistoric-looking rhododendrons and “Grandmother Spruce” an impressive specimen thought to have straddled the creek for at least 300 years. Leaving the gardens at the base of the hill, the path leads through a cluster of art galleries before reaching the one major wrinkle in the plan for a fully looped trail. “You come out of this tranquility and — hello — here’s Highway 101,” Fowler said. Fortunately, this section of the highway is long and straight, giving people good visibility in both directions as they prepare to cross. Once safely on the west side, Overleaf Lodge or Smelt Sands State Park offer access to the 804 trail, which leads south along the coastline to downtown Yachats. Walkers who have parked at the Diversity Drive trailhead need only walk along the highway shoulder for about four minutes to get back to their car. Creating the Ya’Xaik trail took six years and countless volunteer hours spent planning, securing easements, working with local authorities and, finally, clearing the path itself. The next steps will be to try and extend the trail on the east side of the highway into downtown Yachats to create a complete loop and maybe even provide access to The Amanda Trail south of the Yachats Bridge, which would give walkers the option of hiking all the way to the Cape Perpetua lookout. And with each section added, Yachats’ adds to its reputation as a recreational destination while also deepening the connection with its past. “A lot of these trails have stories,” Kittel said. “All of them do. And we don’t want the stories to get lost.” Getting there: At the north end of Yachats, turn east on to Diversity Drive and continue to the end of the road to find the trailhead, just past the affordable housing complex. Or, to hike the other direction, pick up the 804 Trail from Yachats State Park overlooking the bay. Dogs are not allowed in the Gerdemann Botanic Preserve.

Wreaths: some entry-level classes With holiday season fast approaching, several groups are taking steps to try and tackle the problem of un-wreathed doors at the Oregon Coast. For just $12, participants in the Tillamook Forest Center’s Holiday Wreath Making classes will get the chance to bring the beauty of the forest home by crafting a winter wreath from found materials. Participants will be introduced to a variety of natural materials that can be used for home decoration during the holiday season. A $3 class aimed at younger children will teach how to make cone bird feeders and other small items. All materials and supplies are included in the cost of the classes, which take place at 11:30 am on Friday, Nov. 29; Saturday, Nov. 30; and Sunday, Dec. 1. Registration is required and the deadline is Sunday, Nov. 24. To register, send an email to dberkshire@odf. state.or.us with the names of all people attending. Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge is also running holiday wreath-making workshops, where participants will learn how to combine native conifers and shrubs into a beautiful wreath to take home. Volunteer in Residence Lee Sliman, an experienced wreath maker, leads the workshops, which are back by popular demand. The first two workshops, on Sunday, Dec. 1, and Sunday, Dec. 8, will be held at the refuge itself, running from 10:30 am to 1 pm and including a short interpretive walk. The workshops are free of charge. The third workshop will run from noon to 2:30 pm on Sunday, Dec. 8, at Connie Hansen Garden, 1931 NW 33rd Street. A $5 donation to the garden is requested. All materials are provided but participants can also bring special decorating items to personalize their wreaths. Workshop attendees should wear warm, comfortable clothing ands bring pruning shears and gardening gloves if they have them.

Or, if all that seems like too much effort, buy a readymade wreath from the Lincoln City Rotary Club with proceeds going toward the club’s scholarship fund for local students. In addition to the standard wreath — a 24-inch circlet, handmade on the Oregon Coast, from fir, juniper and cedar and decorated with pine cones and a festive red bow — Rotarians have expanded their holiday offerings to include 30” and 60” wreaths, crosses, candy canes, and centerpieces. The basic wreath sells for $28 local delivery and $39.50 for shipped delivery. Order information can be found at www.lincolncityrotary.org.

Light up a life this season Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital is inviting people to pay tribute to their loved ones by placing lights on a holiday tree in the Light Up a Life ceremony slated for Friday, Nov. 15.

On request, the hospital will send an acknowledgment of the gift to the person, family or business being honored.

A celebration to restore the spirits Chinook Winds Casino Resort in Lincoln City will fill with music and dance on Saturday, Nov. 16, as the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians hold their annual Restoration PowWow, celebrating the 36th anniversary of regaining their official status as a Native American Tribe. The Siletz Tribe was terminated from federal recognition in August 1954 and it was not until 1977, after years of intense lobbying, that Congress and President Jimmy Carter

approved Public Law 95-195, which reinstated recognition of the Siletz as a federal Indian Tribe. The Siletz Tribe was the second in the nation – and the first in Oregon – to achieve restoration. Since its restoration, the Tribe has achieved many milestones, including the development of a health clinic, fitness center, recreation center and a childcare center as well as building homes for more than 150 Tribal members. The Tribe also played a

lead role in opening Siletz Valley School and Siletz Valley Early College Academy. Chinook Winds Casino Resort, where the pow-wow will take place, remains the jewel in the crown of the Tribe’s economic development efforts. Between the resort and several other businesses, the Tribe is the largest employer in Lincoln County. Meanwhile, the Tribe has given out $10.7 million through its charitable contribution fund and other resources.

Chinook Winds alone has donated nearly $2.3 million in cash and fundraising items since opening in 1995. The pow-wow, which is free and open to all, begins at 6 pm This free event begins with a grand entry at 6 pm. Vendors will be on site throughout the event selling Native American jewelry, beadwork and other items. The casino is located at 1777 NW 44th Street.

Have a ball in Lincoln City No really… have it. That pretty glass float is yours to keep.

T

his weekend, the Lincoln City forecast calls for mild temperatures, some rain and a whole lot of glass. Not only is the Finders Keepers glass float giveaway in full swing but Saturday, Nov. 16, is also the date for one of several special art drops, which see glass crabs, starfish and sand dollars scattered on the sands. The Finders Keepers program runs from midOctober through to the end of May, with volunteers hiding glass floats on the beach every day that weather conditions allow. This season’s haul is the biggest ever, with more than 2,000 floats and about a thousand smaller pieces up for grabs. If the treasures seem elusive, bear in mind that some of these “float fairies” have been doing this for a long time and have plenty of experience finding the perfect hiding spots. One such long-standing volunteer, let’s call him GQ to avoid blowing his cover, said he follows the 5050 rule — hiding half the floats with devilish cunning in order to challenge hardcore searchers; while leaving the other half in easier-tospot locations to provide a pleasant surprise to the casual beachgoer. “I like to make sure that everybody gets a fair chance,” he said. GQ has been hiding floats on the beach for 12 years, starting along with his father the year after the program started in 2000, a time when the treasures were dubbed “Millennium Balls.” “The first year of course we were out looking because it was a great big deal when they first started,” he said, adding: “We started out as hunters and quickly switched over to hiders.” Hiding the floats, he said, proved

to be every bit as satisfying as searching for them. “I almost felt — I don’t want to say powerful — but sneaky,” he said. “Like ‘hee-hee-hee, I’ve got the floats.’” But being a float hider was not without its challenges for GQ and his father, who found themselves followed, scrutinized by binoculars from the cliff tops and even chased along the beach. “We would work in tandem,” he said. “In the first three years, people were pretty voracious about getting them. We would run decoys.” With the float fairies all operating independently, organization sometimes left a little to be desired. GQ remembers going down to the beach one night to hide floats and finding that other fairies had been there first — he found five in a row. “In the early days it was what you would call the Wild West,” he said. “It was ‘get them on the beach.’” A brief experiment of allocating territory to each fairy was called off due to concerns that it made the volunteers easier to spot as float hoarders became familiar with their vehicles and routines. Now, GQ makes his drops as random as possible, keeping a few floats in the trunk of his car so that he’s ready when the opportunity presents itself. With the exception of family and a handful of friends, he keeps his volunteer status on the down low. “My wife knows, obviously. I can’t be sneaking out with all these,” he said, miming an armful of floats. Hiding the floats has become easier

since the City heeded fairies’ requests to make the treasures smaller. GQ said the original floats were so large that they would cause a telltale bulge in even the largest jacket and forced volunteers to hold their arms out like bodybuilders as they waddled down the beach. GQ’s float-hiding partnership came to an end earlier this year when his father passed away in mid-January. “I picked up his last batch of floats and hid them and that was it,” GQ said. Even when his health was failing, GQ Senior remained dedicated to getting the floats out on the beach by any means possible. “He would do what he could,” GQ said. “He would go to the end of the wayside and just flop one off in the sand. At 15th Street, he would drive down and roll one out of the car and drive back up the ramp.” While GQ’s father is gone, his spirit remains — in the form of at least two of his glass floats that remain undiscovered despite being on the beach for many years. GQ said he goes and checks on the floats every now and then and always finds them still in place, clearly visible but with glass that has now faded after years exposed to the elements. “One day someone will find it and check the date,” he said. All the floats hidden as part of the Finder Keepers program are stamped with the season date as well as the name of the glass blowing company that produced them. A sticker gives more details of the program and reassures parents that the bauble in their excited kid’s hand is indeed theirs to take home and treasure. For his part, GQ says he doesn’t miss hunting for floats, partly because he stumbles across them all the time when out hiding his own glass and partly because of the sheer joy that comes with making someone’s day.


on the cover While foggy days are best for hiding, he said, nothing beats sunshine and a blue sky for seeing the look on someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face when they ďŹ nd their Lincoln City souvenir. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it creates a positive memory,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not that the beach is not beautiful enough but it gives them something extra to pay attention to when they are here.â&#x20AC;? GQ said he sometimes sees ďŹ&#x201A;oat hunters picking up trash as they go, making him believe that the simple act of searching makes people more aware of their surroundings and better stewards as a result. It certainly seems to have worked that way for him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I spend a lot more time on the beach,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw things I never thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d see â&#x20AC;&#x201D; killer whales and Gray whales breaching in front of D River. I think it gives me a deeper appreciation of the city and the coastline.â&#x20AC;?

Courtney Rand, PR & sponsorship coordinator for the Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce, said the ďŹ&#x201A;oats are hand-blown by The Edge Art Gallery and hark back to the days when glass ďŹ&#x201A;oats were commonplace in the ďŹ shing industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For years, visitors and residents along the Oregon Coast would delight in ďŹ nding Japanese glass ďŹ&#x201A;oat balls, having made their way across the ocean expanse to wash up on these beaches,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a tradition until the last decade, when they started to fade from existence. Now, Newport is helping to revive that sense of joy.â&#x20AC;? From now until the end of January, glass fans can visit any one of the nearly 40 businesses taking part in the program and ďŹ ll out an entry form to win one of the ďŹ&#x201A;oats, each of which has â&#x20AC;&#x153;Newport, Oregonâ&#x20AC;? engraved on the base. Weekly drawings will be held throughout the winter, with the remainder of the ďŹ&#x201A;oats given away Jan. 31, when each business will select one, two or three names from its entry pool for each of their glass ďŹ&#x201A;oats. Rand said the program is designed to introduce Northwest travelers to Newportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;value season.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a time of year when slower traďŹ&#x192;c, great sales at various kinds of businesses and fantastic lodging deals come together to create a unique time of year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially for those looking to do some holiday shopping in a more relaxed environment,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All that is also accompanied by the always-spectacular storm watch season.â&#x20AC;? The businesses are listed at www.newportchamber.org and a map is available from the Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce. Call 800-262-7844 for details.

What do you get if you cross Hawaiian slack key guitar with a Celtic dulcimer? Mark Kailana Nelson. Nope, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not funny â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but it is true. And Nelson will be bringing his distinctive fusion sound to the Lincoln City Cultural Center on Saturday, Nov. 16. A gifted multiinstrumentalist, Nelson has picked up music from places as far aďŹ eld as the South PaciďŹ c, the Irish Sea and Alta California. In the early 1970s, he was one of a handful of free-spirited musicians who created a whole new vocabulary for the Appalachian dulcimer and guitar, creating a driving ďŹ&#x201A;atpicking dulcimer style that saw him win ďŹ rst place win at the 1979 National Mountain Dulcimer Championships in Kansas. Meanwhile, some 3,600 miles west, Hawaiian musicians were playing Ki Ho `alu, or slack key guitar, a unique style thought to have developed after Spanish cowboys brought the ďŹ rst guitars to the islands. Nelson became one of the ďŹ rst non-Hawaiian

A little strumminâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; extra Nelson will run a pair of ukulele workshops on Sunday, Nov. 17. FUN WITH YOUR UKULELE 10:30 am-noon Learn new ways to play familiar chords, fancy strums and simple picking to spice up your ukulele skills, playing some classic Hawaiian and hapa-haole songs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and maybe even some rock and reggae â&#x20AC;&#x201D; along the way. Suitable for all levels of experience. Good singing voice is optional.

musicians to master the style, and learned to play the ukulele pretty well while he was at it. An engaging performer, Nelson artfully weaves stories and humor with heartfelt music. He has performed at festivals, colleges and coďŹ&#x20AC;eehouses across North America and Europe; had a recording career spanning more than 25 years; and is in demand nationwide as an instructor. When not touring Nelson maintains a small recording studio and writes about music and music technology for several national magazines. He and his wife live in Southern Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural Applegate Valley along with an assortment of pets, semi-tame birds and the ever-present squirrel hoard. Nelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nov. 16 concert will start at 7 pm in the auditorium of the cultural center, 540 NE Hwy. 101. Tickets are $12 in advance or $14 at the door and are available by calling 541-9949994.

FINGERSTYLE UKULELE WORKSHOP 1-3 pm Learn to play some classic Polynesian melodies on your ukulele. No previous fingerstyle experience is necessary, but you should know your basic chords, be comfortable with strums, be willing to leave your comfort zone, and have a good sense of humor. Learn by tablature and by ear, in Hawaiian tuning (G-CE-A). Most arrangements work for either high or low G strung ukulele. Because of some of the fingerings, this workshop is best on concert and tenor ukulele. (Baritones use a different tuning; so please bring a capo.)

Classes will take place in the downstairs classroom $35 for one, $50 for both. To pre-register, call 541-994-9994

Brush up well for Let There Be Arts Let There Be Arts is getting its dance card in order early for New Year, inviting people to swing into 2014 with a party that organizers promise will be the “cat’s meow.” The Tuesday, Dec. 31, bash will see the 20-piece Lincoln Pops Big Band play guests into the New Year with swing and big band-era classics from 8:30 pm to 12:30 am at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. Tickets, priced at $50 if bought before Dec. 15 and $60 thereafter, include hors d’oeuvres, two drink tickets and a midnight toast. Dress is semi-formal, so a tuxedo jacket with Bermuda shorts should be fine. Funds raised will help the nonprofit group continue working on art projects with Lincoln County schoolchildren. Tickets are on sale at the cultural center, 540 NE Hwy. 101. For details, call 541994-9994 or go to www.lincolncity-culturalcenter.org or www.lettherebearts.com.

From Bonaire to Boiler Bay Marine scientist Bori Olla will present “Fish Tales and More On and Around the Coral Reefs of Bonaire,” at the Yaquina Birders & Naturalists meeting on Thursday, Nov. 21. In this, the 12th of a series of videos on the reefs of the Caribbean island, which is 65 miles north of Venezuela, Olla will discusses behavior and natural history of a variety of fish and invertebrate species. “Coral reefs are the ‘rain forests’ of the sea providing a foundation for a vast diversity of species,” he said. “However, the opportunities to directly experience healthy coral reefs are rapidly fading. Bonaire’s reefs, while not immune to these changes, are nonetheless in better condition than most other reefs in the Caribbean.” The presentation will center on often overlooked species, their behaviors and the relationship of these to a tropical coral reef ’s ecosystem. The event, free and open to all, starts at 7 pm in the meeting room of Central Lincoln PUD, 2129 North Coast Highway, Newport. For more information, call 541265-2965. On Saturday, Nov. 23, the group will hold a free birding field trip to Boiler Bay, led by Darrel Faxon. During the two-hour field trip, participants will search the wind and waves for seabirds including Common and Pacific Loons, Western Grebes, Surf Scoters, and more. Dress for variable weather and meet at 7:30 am in the parking lot for Boiler Bay State Scenic Viewpoint, just north of Depoe Bay. For more information, call 541-2652965.

Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world — the folks at the Bay City Arts Center are hoping you walk into theirs on Saturday, Nov 23, for a Moroccan-themed fund-raiser dinner dubbed “Night at the Casbah.” The evening will begin with a community dinner, featuring a menu consisting of chicken, chickpea and squash soup, rice, salad, dessert and sweet mint iced tea. Entertainment will include a live belly dancing presentation, traditional Middle

Eastern music and a silent auction. The event will begin at 6 pm at the center, 5680 A Street, Bay City. Only 50 tickets will be available, at cost $20 each — available at the center and the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum. The nonprofit arts center will use the proceeds from ticket sales and the silent auction to support creativity through its programs and partnerships throughout Tillamook County. For more information, call 503-377-9620.

Cast your ballot for this box For more than 90 years, the League of Women Voters has sought to cut through political spin and allow voters to compare candidates and arguments on an apples-toapples basis. Now the Lincoln County chapter of the group is giving people the chance to compare apples to oranges, pears or even grapefruit by ordering a box of fruit for the holiday season. A 20-pound box of either Texas red grapefruit or California navel oranges sells for $22. The same size box of Washington Fuji apples or Northwest Comice pears sells for $28. Also available for $28 is a Festival of Fruit box, which weighs about 22 pounds and contains an assortment of all four fruits. Orders must be prepaid and should be placed by Wednesday, Nov. 20. The fruit will be delivered the second or third week of December. To place an order, call Maxine Demory at 541-265-7532 or Joan Haffner at 541-547-4736 or contact any other member of the League of Women Voters of Lincoln County. For more information about the nonpartisan political organization, call Gen Rosin, president, at 503-569-2550 or Ruth Kistler, membership chair, at 541-574-8145.

A bright idea for a party Few movie sequels have been as hotly awaited as “Catching Fire,” the follow up to the phenomenally successful “The Hunger Games” — a tale of a dystopian future where teenagers are forced to battle to the death as “tributes” to an oppressive state. The prayers of all those keen to catch up with Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark will be answered on Friday, Nov. 22, when the movie hits theaters across the US. In anticipation of what many see as the movie event of the year, Newport Public Library will hold a “Catching Fire” party at its Teen Third Thursday event on Thursday Nov. 21. The free party will run from 3:45 until 5:30 pm at the library, 35 NW Nye Street and will include contests and content-filled trivia as well as costumes and snacks. Call 541-265-2153 to sign up and: “May the odds be ever in your favor.”

on stage

A comedy that goes like the clappers â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christmas Bellesâ&#x20AC;? rings in the festive season with frenetic, farcical fun

I

f spending the holidays with your family is a daunting prospect, Newportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Porthole Players have a Christmas show that will make your clanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s peculiarities seem tame by comparison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christmas Belles,â&#x20AC;? tells the story of the three Futrelle sisters and their eďŹ&#x20AC;orts to stage a church show in the ďŹ ctional Texas town of Fayro â&#x20AC;&#x201D; involving a vengeful sheep, a reluctant Elvis impersonator and a Santa gone wild. The tightly woven tale sees the eldest Futrelle sister, Honey Rae, take charge of the Tabernacle of the Lambâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas Program â&#x20AC;&#x201D; deciding to shake up the time-honored tradition that has been running for 27 years. Juggling her directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duties with hot ďŹ&#x201A;ashes, Honey Raye does her best to keep the show from spiraling into chaos, but things are not looking too promising. To add to the stresses, Miss Geneva, the ousted director of the previous 27 productions, is ruthless in her attempts to regain control. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at time like this that you know you can count on family to rally â&#x20AC;&#x2122;round, but Honey Rayeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sisters, Frankie and Twink, come with some serious baggage. A cranky Frankie is weeks overdue with her second set of twins, while Twink, recently jilted and bitter about it, is in jail for accidentally burning down half the town. As opening night gets closer and closer, the problems keep adding up. The celebrity guest Santa Claus, played by Frankieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

long-suďŹ&#x20AC;ering husband, Dub, is passing a kidney stone; one of the shepherds refuses to watch over his ďŹ&#x201A;ock by night without pulling his little red wagon behind him; and the entire cast is dropping like ďŹ&#x201A;ies due to food poisoning from the Band Boostersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Pancake Supper. But all these problems pale in comparison to the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s climax, involving the revelation of a closely guarded family secret that it seems even an Elvis impersonator at the manger canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ x. But in true Futrelle fashion, the feuding sisters ďŹ nd a way to pull together in order to present a Christmas program the citizens of Fayro will never forget. Written by the internationally renowned comic trio of Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christmas Bellesâ&#x20AC;? is the second of three plays featuring the dysfunctional sisters, taking its place in between â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dearly Departedâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Southern Comfort.â&#x20AC;? The Newport production stars many well-loved veterans of the coastal theater scene, including Betsy Henderson, Khloella Brateng, Nikki and Justin Atkins, Akia Woods, Eric Schindler, LeeAnn Chandler, and Alex Robbins. Rounding out the 11-person cast are Dana Fleck, Noel Sutton, and newcomer Lance Sullivan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even after weeks of rehearsal, I still ďŹ nd myself laughing at many of the things in this show,â&#x20AC;? director Cyn Wilkes said,

Dana Fleck, Betsy Henderson and Nikkie Atkins as the Futrelle sisters

â&#x20AC;&#x153;which is a credit to how well my wonderful cast plays oďŹ&#x20AC; one another.â&#x20AC;? The play opens on Friday, Nov. 15, at 7 pm at the Newport Performing Arts Center, 777 W. Olive Street. The play will run through to Dec. 1, with performances at 7 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, as well as 2 pm matinĂŠes each Sunday. Tickets cost $16 apiece and are on sale now at the center box oďŹ&#x192;ce as well as online at www.coastarts.org. For more information, call 541 265-2787.

Johannes Vermeer, acclaimed as one of the masters of the Dutch Golden Age of painting, is the subject of the latest art documentary to grace the screen at the Newport Performing Arts Center in the glory of High DeďŹ nition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vermeer and Music: The Art of Love and Leisureâ&#x20AC;? is the third in the EXHIBITION series of documentaries, that go behind the scenes of major exhibits to tell the story of the famed painters and their work. The ďŹ lm, which screens on Sunday, Nov. 17, will explore the stories behind the Vermeer exhibition at Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Gallery, looking at paintings ranging from his famous â&#x20AC;&#x153;Girl with a Pearl Earringâ&#x20AC;? to lesser-known works. Living from 1632 to 1675, Vermeer achieved modest fame during his own lifetime but faded into obscurity after his death, with interest in his work only revived in the 19th Century. Art experts have identiďŹ ed Vermeer as the creator of 30 works that still exist. The National

Good through November 27 Gallery has chosen to focus its exhibition on his art as it relates to music â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one of the most popular themes of Dutch painting and one that revealed an enormous amount about the sitter and the society. As in previous EXHIBITION documentaries on Edouard Manet and Edvard Munch, host and art historian Tim Marlow will go beyond the gallery with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.

Toledo Public Library will welcome a new reader to the fold on Friday, Nov. 15, with the dedication of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Storyteller,â&#x20AC;? a sculpture created by local artist Karen Fitzgibbon. The piece, created from recycled and repurposed materials, is a gift from current Library Director Deborah Trusty and her husband, Bob. Trusty said she originally admired the sculpture three years ago, long before taking her current position but feels a library is the perfect spot for the piece. Fitzgibbon of Fikaa Design is a popular local artist, whose sculptures, ranging from whimsical to spiritual and tribal to exotic, have been exhibited throughout the area, including the Newport Visual Arts Center. Karen Candelario of Ozone Fine Art was instrumental in helping Trusty acquire the piece for the library. The Nov. 15 reception will take place at 6 pm at the library, 173 NW 7th Street.
