Writers Read Deadline is Friday, Jan. 20: Hemingway Awaits!

Submitted By: nmccarthy1276@gmail.com – Click to email about this post
It’s time to polish those entries for the Writers Read Celebration sponsored by the Cannon Beach Library. The deadline is Friday, Jan. 20.
Here’s the original news release and flyer for the event:
Suppose novelist Ernest Hemingway arrived at the Oregon coast and wanted to write about his experience in a maximum of 600 words. What would he write?
This year’s Writers Read Celebration, sponsored by the Cannon Beach Library, asks that question with the theme, “Hemingway at the beach: What Would He Say?”
Writers of all ages from all areas are invited to consider how or what Hemingway would say while at the beach. All written formats will be considered (essay, story, poetry, haiku, script, etc.) Authors are limited to three entries with a 600-word maximum per entry. The deadline for submissions is Jan. 20.
A panel of volunteer judges will select 10 to 12 works to be read by their authors either in person or online during the celebration March 10 in the library.
Hemingway wrote about his experiences using as few words as possible, and his novels and short stories have become classics. The Writers Read Celebration offers an opportunity to have fun with this writing style in any form; the piece can be serious, whimsical, tongue-in-cheek or thoughtful.
Submissions will be accepted by email at info@cannonbeachlibrary.org) or by mail (P.O. Box 486 Cannon Beach, OR 97110), though email is preferred.
Submissions should be in Word or PDF format and include a cover letter with the writer’s name, email and phone number. Please do not include the author’s name or contact information on the entry
document so authors remain anonymous during the judging process.
The NW Authors Series Committee sponsors monthly author presentations and other events at the Cannon Beach Library. This is the fifth year of the Writers Read Celebration. Previous themes were: “Life on the North Coast,” “The View from the North Coast,” “Pandemic” and “Recovery?.” Writers Read Celebrations on Zoom from 2022 and 2021 are available for viewing on Cannon Beach Library’s website.

Time: 1 p.m. PT

Location: Tillamook High School
2605 12th Street, Tillamook, OR 97141

Washington, D.C. – Oregon’s U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley announced today his first round of in-person town halls in 2023. Merkley will hold a town hall for each of Oregon’s 36 counties.
“I hold a town hall for every Oregon county, every year because there is simply no substitute to hearing directly from folks about the ideas and priorities that matter most to them and their communities. Oregonians’ thoughts help shape my work in Congress, including positions on policies, ideas for bills, and strategies for securing resources for every corner of our state,” Merkley said.

Construction begins at MTS

Submitted By: dmccalltillamook@gmail.com – Click to email about this post
The Manzanita Transfer Station, located at 34995 Necarney City Rd, has been home to an open burn site, a landfill, and has operated as a municipal solid waste (MSW) transfer station and recycling facility since 1981, under DEQ Solid Waste Disposal Site Permit #342. The quantities of materials collected at this site have increased over the years, reflecting the increasing population and economic activities in the area. Planning activities initiated in 2017 were completed in 2022.

As the owner and operator of this site, we are pleased to announce that construction is scheduled to being on a significant expansion project during the week of January 9, 2023. This investment will result in additional Z-walls, creating capacity to serve the community’s needs in the upcoming years. Z-walls enable the efficient transfer of small loads into large containers, which are then compacted and shipped off for final management.

Efforts have been made to restrict construction activities to times and areas separated from public access, to the extent possible. This means that most of users of the transfer station will not experience any impact during construction. All recycling activities will continue as usual. Scrap metal and yard debris acceptance will continue as usual. Trash acceptance will continue, though periodic restrictions may limit access to the so-called trailer lanes on the west side of the fee station.

Our ability to accept large quantities of rubble (clean fill, sand, concrete, bricks, etc.) may be impacted during construction. Please contact staff before bringing any quantities of rubble greater than ¼ cubic yard to ensure we have the ability to accept your material.

Lastly, we are all excited about the improvements this construction project will bring, but it is important that the contractors are able to work without disturbances or intrusions. We request that everyone respect that, stay out of the designated construction area, and be aware of equipment coming and going on site.

If you have any questions about this project, please feel free to contact my office for more information.

Thank you,

David McCall
Solid Waste Program Manager

New Book Club – The Ponderous Tome

Submitted By: tolovanaartscolony@gmail.com – Click to email about this post
Ponderous Tome Book Club
(Coming in January, 2023)

Announcing a non-fiction book club for thoughtful citizens interested in the Climate Crisis, preserving constitutional democracy, and – in general – building a better society through thoughtful, pragmatic reform.

The Ponderous Tome Book Club will meet monthly, ten times a year – omitting December and once during the high season – to discuss books on a variety of topics, including:

History and Biography
The Climate Crisis and Species Extinction
Economics
Domestic and Global Politics
Economics
Education, Health, and the Future of Food
War and Peace

Stimulating discussion is expected, but civility will be the order of the day, with Benjamin Franklin’s precepts for the conduct of meetings as our inspiration.

We hope to attract participants from a broad range of rational perspectives – but we will draw the line at denialism and defeatism. We seek to expand our minds and our sense of the possible – not our lists of grievances and causes for despair. (A daily dose of news and social media furnish quite enough of the latter.)

Our first book will be The Revolutionary: Samuel Adams, published this October by Pulitizer Prize-winning biographer Stacy Schiff. (At 327 pages, not too ponderous.)

‘Rick Gray, organizer of the Ponderous Tome Book Club, is a native Virginian and, since 2018, a full-time resident of Cannon Beach. In a varied career, he has been – in order – a practicing attorney, Secretary of the Commonwealth of Virginia, a high school history teacher and administrator, a professional stage actor, an op-ed columnist, and a full-time caregiver for his mother. A lifelong student of history and frequent political activist, he sought the District 32 seat in Oregon’s House of Representatives in 2022.

Foster Kittens Seeking their Forever Homes

Submitted By: Mindyc3756@gmail.com – Click to email about this post
2 male foster kittens seeking their forever homes.
These guys are well socialized with people,
despite their rough start. They and their
sweet mama kitty and older sister kitty were
abandoned in Portland, and living in a sweet
woman’s garage. All had eye infections and
upper respiratory infections. Thanks to the
good folks at the Tillamook animal shelter
they received medical care, and are now healthy,
rambunctious, and ready for their new best
human friend/s! These two males are cuddly,
playful, and not mention totally adorable!
One is an orange heavy-weight (biggest in
the litter), the one is a smaller white/orange
pattern. Both are sweet and love cuddles and
pets. Both will need neutering in about 2-4
months to discourage spraying, roaming, and
of course adding to the already out of
control homeless cat population! They also
need their first round of shots. They are
approximately 8 weeks old. Their mama kitty
is also seeking a quiet home preferably with
no dogs and not a lot of chaos. Thanks for looking!
