Description

Yes, it is another "Weekend in the West," but it is also the final day of September 2022.  Swoosh and we are not talking about the Nike logo.  No swoosh as in fast, where did the month go and look out October.  Now Saturday will be the new month.  Second of the four "ber" months.  If you are wondering about Daylight Saving Time and when will it end, try November 6th this year.  Then we all can Fall back.  Now here's the kicker, check out the forecast for the Bay Area... Partly cloudy skies along the South Oregon Coast with highs in the upper 60s and winds out of the North at 15-25 mph.  Clear skies tonight with lows in the mid 50s and winds out of the North to Northeast at 10-20 mph.  That all sounds normal, but then look at this:  Sunny on Saturday with highs in the low 80s and winds from the North to Northeast at 10-15 mph.  Everything is normal until you hit Saturday, then boom.  Shorts and short sleeves are back on.  And you thought you could put your Summer clothes away.  Let's get to the news...
  • COVID-19 report now shows 175 deaths in Coos Co. and the question remains, will this ever end?  Beginning to think no.  Looks like it is around us and we will have to learn to deal with it.  Vaccine, booster shots, good cleaning, social distancing, no coughing in one's face or direction, and if you feel sick, see a doctor.  What else besides Isolation?
  • OHA has lifted a couple of health advisories along the North Coast.
  • Disappointing report from OHA regarding Opioids in Oregon in 2021, usage/overdoes on the increase.  Can't imagine putting yourself in Harm's Way.
  • Oregon has sent a team to Florida to assist with Hurricane Ian recovery.  
  • Quake near the outer fault line off of western Canada.
  • Southwestern Oregon has a Job Fair.  The whole Bay Area should be participating given the amount of "help wanted" signs at local businesses.
  • South Coast Striders have a couple of hikes this weekend.
  • Ballet Folklorico Ritmo Alegre Dance Workshop coming up at CBPL.  Time to register.
  • Clatsop Beaches reopening to Razor Clam digging.
  • DEQ issues environmental penalties for August.  One was in Charleston.
  • More salmon fishing opportunities on the Lower Columbia River.
  • Archery deer hunt drawing coming up in Southern Oregon.
  • Guilty plea from a country music promoter in the Willamette Valley.
  • Death investigation update in Lane Co.
  • Hit & run vehicle sought in Coos Bay.
  • Police logs show unauthorized use, warrant arrests, UEMV, criminal trespass, animal abuse, & more.
  • In sports, prep volleyball action last night, Marshfield downs North Bend.  Prep football tonight has both the Bulldogs and Pirates playing at home.  NBHS runners at Woahink Lake Saturday.
  • SWOCC sports teams are out of town this weekend.
  • Pac-12 football, Ducks are home for a late Saturday night game.  Might need a nap for this one.  Beavers go to Salt Lake City for another key game relegated to the Pac-12 Network.  Where's Rodney Dangerfield when you need a quick line?
  • Pac-12 volleyball has the Ducks and Beavers home at Eugene and Corvallis.
  • Not a good night for the women's soccer teams at UO and OSU Thursday.  Both lost.  Beavers men got a win on the road.  Action continues on Sunday for the women's teams at home.
  • Seahawks play at Detroit Sunday in a morning game on Fox.
Just doesn't seem fair that September just blew right through us.  Back to school, start of Fall Sports, end of the Summer traffic on Hwy. 101 (yeah, sure, guess again), and the beginning of Fall weather.  Just not quite a "normal" September.  I'm real curious to see what October has in store for us.  My real concern, the Holidays.  Must be approaching faster than an incoming tide and I am not ready.  Actually, I generally procrastinate to the very end.  I always have good thoughts about now and from now on, but the pattern returns.  As fast as September blew by I better do more than think, or swoosh!  Don't forget your COVID-19 protections.
