Opening Reception August 6 | 3:00-5:00pm
Hoffman Center for the Arts | 594 Laneda Avenue | Manzanita

Featuring the works of ALXSw,
George Wilson, and Kopali Serna

Artists’ statement: ALXSw –

“Studying martial arts introduced me to Shodo and Zen traditional works. I’ve been deeply impacted by studying the use of empty space in the works of Zen Reishis. Additionally, the placement of an artist’s chops (the red seals) are the final balancer of a composition. Like most 2D arts the first works of a student of Shodo (the art of the brush) are precise, structured, predictable as identifiable kanji or phrases, as with realism in western painting; the orange in a bowl is predictably recognizable. There is no strain or inquiry required to extract any particular meaning.”

Artists’ statement” George Wilson –

“I paint watercolors, soaking the paper, sometimes on both sides and applying washes of color and tone wet on wet to create atmosphere and form. As the paper dries I add detail and structure using sketchbook and memory as source material. I like to paint the shapes of birds and sea stacks; the vertical staccato of old river pilings, the wake of ducks on the river.”

Artists’ statement: Kopali Serna –

“This series explores the story of a hearth that lay frozen for generations but has undergone a time of thawing and regeneration. I conceptualized the series from my perspective as a self-taught indigenous artist, at one point separated from my traditions through the impact of colonization, but now intuitively and joyfully rejoined.”

The gallery is free and open to the public.

Health District Receives Welcome Jump Start to Develop New Health Center/Pharmacy

Health District Receives Welcome Jump Start to Develop New Health Center/Pharmacy

New Center Would Be Built in Wheeler and Will Create New Opportunities for Housing for Health Care Workers

Efforts by the Nehalem Bay Health District to improve primary health care delivery in north Tillamook County have received a major boost thanks to Oregon Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden.

Earlier this year the health district asked to be considered for “congressionally directed funding” to finance a portion of a new primary health care center and pharmacy in Wheeler. Merkley and Wyden announced recently that the requests have been included in proposals approved by the Senate Appropriations Committee where Merkley is a member.

The request for $3 million constitutes a major jump start for the district’s funding plan for the new health center/pharmacy.

“A new, state of the art health care center and pharmacy will truly be a transformative development in north Tillamook County,” said Marc C. Johnson, President, Nehalem Bay Health District. “The new health center/pharmacy will double the size of the current aging facility, allowing better delivery of services including specialty care, to more residents and visitors. The Nehalem Bay Health District is enormously grateful to Senators Merkley and Wyden for understanding and supporting quality health care close to home in rural Oregon.”

Johnson said the district is enormously gratified by the broad community support shown for the project, including endorsements of the congressional funding request from the Tillamook County Commissioners; the mayors of Wheeler, Nehalem and Manzanita; the Neahkahnie School District (which partners with the existing clinic on a School Based Health Center on its campus); the Emergency Volunteer Corps of Nehalem Bay; CARE, the non-profit social service agency in Tillamook County; and Oregon state senator Rachel Armitage.

All who endorsed the project understand the need to provide quality health care services close to where people live and work in rural Oregon.

“This level of community support clearly helps position the project for success, and the support had to be impressive to Senators Merkley and Wyden,” Johnson said. He said the entire board deeply appreciates the community support.

The district envisions construction the new facility on a 1.3-acre parcel directly adjacent to Highway 101 in Wheeler. The district purchased the property last summer and has done substantial preliminary design work, including geotechnical studies and coordination with the city of Wheeler.

The new facility is envisioned as a 19,000 square foot medical center and pharmacy on two levels. The new health center will contain expanded exam rooms, specialty suites, staff work and meeting areas and a significantly larger pharmacy.

The district is working to finalize an overall funding plan for the health center and pharmacy, including an approach to upgrade and revitalize the existing Nehalem Valley Care Center in Wheeler, a 48-bed skilled nursing facility that is one of the few facilities of its kind on the Oregon coast.

The district intends, once the health center and pharmacy are relocated to the new site in Wheeler, as part of its long-term strategy and subject to community approval, to repurpose a portion of its existing campus to address a critical community need – workforce housing opportunities for workers at the health center and Care Center.

The district is also committed to working with the North County Food Bank, currently housed in the old Wheeler hospital, to identify a suitable location for a new food bank facility.

The district welcomes community involvement in its planning and development and holds two regular meetings every month – the second Wednesday for health district business and the fourth Wednesday for Care Center business. The public is invited to attend the meetings that are held on Zoom.

How to show your support for Northcoast BBQ

Submitted By: barbaraandchuck@nehalemtel.net – Click to email about this post
Chuck and Barbara have been providing FREE access to the Northcoastbbq for over 15 years. (Chuck does all the work!)

If you would like to show your appreciation for this free service please consider sending a donation to support our local Grub Club.

To do so, please write a check to Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church (NBUMC) and designate “Grub Club” on the memo line. Donations may be dropped off at the church or mailed to POB 156, Nehalem, OR 97131.

Here are the details as posted earlier by: knappgj@yahoo.com

Our local kids need help with food insecurity this summer. Our North County connection with other Grub Clubs in the area has become fragile with many competing for the same resources.
The Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church volunteers make 800-1000 lunches per week for 8 weeks every summer. These cost about $2 per lunch.. USDA will only reimburse if we hand them out at a communal meal site. This is a problem for rural areas. Our kids are spread out so that volunteer drivers deliver to 15 different locations 3 times a week,

It will cost about $8000 more than we currently have to continue the program.

If you would like to donate money to this very worthy cause, please write a check to NBUMC and designate “Grub Club” on the memo line. Donations may be dropped off at the church or mailed to POB 156, Nehalem, OR 97131.
