Description

It is Dec. 7, 2022.  Is it still "a date to remember?"  For a generation of Americans, yes, for the younger generation I bet they are stretching to find out why Dec. 7th is important.  One generation had Pearl Harbor, the next major man-caused great casualty was Sept. 11th, disappointment and tragedy for a new generation.  I feel it is important to remember these dates, hear the story, grieve, and then look down the road so this kind of thing does not happen again.  But, there are two big ones right there if you are an American that make you wonder about the next.  All countries have their tragedies, but Dec. 7, 1941 is ours.  We should remember what one nation unleashed on another for no other reason than World dominance.  That date is today, a day to remember.  Here's the weather for the South Coast... A mix of clouds and sun along the South Oregon Coast with highs in the upper 40s and winds from the South to Southeast at 5-10 mph.  Showers this evening, then steady rain overnight with lows near 40 and winds from the South at 10-20mph.  Periods of rain on Thursday with highs in the mid 40s.  Sounds like a little change coming our way.  Okay, big change.  Let's get to the news...
  • Look how short Daylight is right now along the South Oregon Coast.  And, we're the last piece of land Sol brightens.
  • Tides for the Coos Bay Estuary show an eight-footer mid-day.  Could be a sandbagger downtown Coos Bay, but no major rain, storm, just yet to push it further.
  • COVID-19 numbers in Coos Co. as released by Coos Health and Wellness.  Yes, like the cold and the flu, this virus is still here and still infecting people.  Vaccinations and boosters are still available.  
  • BACC has their WBC Forum today at the Mill Hotel, North Bend, 11:30 a.m.
  • Spanglish offered at CBPL today.
  • Final ODVA Advisory meeting today, okay, only for the year 2022.
  • The Curry Co. campus of Southwestern Oregon has a new Dean of Instruction Workforce Development Director.
  • Application period for fish passage grants opens in January.  Ten million dollars available.
  • Pacific Power addresses the cold weather and what you can do with your home to stay warm and affordable.
  • Insurance companies are also chiming in on what to do as a Homeowner when cold weather strikes.
  • Kidnapping suspect out of Washington, with three scared children in the backseat, arrested in Lane Co.
  • Police logs show mail theft, criminal trespass and UEMV.  More eyes needed in neighborhoods.  Report any suspicious individuals grabbing packages off porches or going through mail boxes looking for gift cards.
  • In sports, high school basketball last night, both of Marshfield's teams win at Brookings-Harbor, North Bend got a split at home with visiting Toledo.
  • Prep basketball polls are out for this week, and not much in representation from the South Coast.  
Made the long drive to Brookings yesterday to do the two basketball games for Marshfield on the radio.  Been awhile since I have made that trip.  Always a pleasure, however, to round the turn on Hwy. 101 at Battle Rock State Park in Port Orford and see the ocean view south.  Just amazing!  The ocean laid down, no wind and lots of sunshine.  A bit on the cool side, but just beautiful to see all the way to Harris Beach.  It is also nice coming off Cape Sebastian just south of Gold Beach and seeing the beach and waves.  If you are looking to get away, you really do not have to go very far on the South Coast.  The other nice thing is less traffic than north.  Have a good "Hump Day."
