Like so many, we are looking for housing so we can stay on the coast. We’ve been living in 650 sq. ft. in CB apt. for 11 years; residents of CB for 17 years. We need to move by June the 4th of this year. We’re looking for similar accommodations with a minimum of 1 year lease. A little about us: Mature couple – married 46 years with impeccable references and credit. Guaranteed steady income. Private, quiet, non-smokers and drinkers with close ties to the community through volunteer work. One small well behaved companion dog with excellent house manners. Our mind is open to a smaller living situation if it seems like the right fit. We are looking to pay rent year round; are ‘son-birds’ with the privilege to be with grandsons out of state. Please drop us a line if you know of anything available. We would be grateful for any leads you have. Blessings.

Recommendations for plumbing remodel

Submitted By: Rumblemailbox@gmail.com – Click to email about this post
Hello, friends! I need your recommendations, please. I’m wanting to remodel my bathroom to remove a standard tub and install a jetted tub for hydrotherapy (maybe a walk-in). Finding the right contractor/plumber combo is crucial. Do you have recommendations for local contractors based on your experience? Any suggestions on the type of tub that worked for you? There are plenty of advertised tub companies wooing elderly consumers, so I want to avoid a bad experience. Thank you!

Clawfoot tub and Ceramic/Terracotta pots for Garden:)

Submitted By: amersereau@gmail.com – Click to email about this post
Hi all,
I am looking for a clawfoot bath tub to use in my garden (needs to hold water but it’s ok if it’s a bit funky) as well as more ceramic, terracotta or even nicer colored plastic pots – ideally larger sized. I figured it doesn’t hurt to ask in case anyone has things they’re trying to get rid of! Let me know, I’m in Nehalem and would be happy to pick up.

Writing Alive! Workshops, rooted in The Amherst Method, supports the writing process by emphasizing the good. First draft writing enlivened by an experimental, free approach can soar beyond previous bounds. Knowing the good in our work will be found and celebrated, seen and heard, helps us take necessary risks and learn from the expression of our best.

Each workshop is prompt-based, with 2-4 opportunities to write and read aloud in each workshop, for every writer. Writers always have the option to pass — no one is forced to read prematurely. Writers may bring their own work-in-progress and use the dedicated writing time in the workshop to advance their own goals. Writers work at their own level of experience and may write in many different genres during a single 5- or 10-week period. All genres are welcome.

Some craft exercises are included. Most prompts offered are poems or prose passages written by contemporary or long-standing established writers; writings from philosophers or spiritual teachers associated with varied paths to understanding. We endeavor, as writers, to stretch ourselves into uncomfortable territories. Support and positive feedback assist us to do this.

Dana Cunningham Anderson, M.S., is a certified facilitator with The Amherst Method; an experienced editor in possession of several decades’ of acquired knowledge; a retired psychotherapist; an active, professional visual artist; and a meditator. With Writing Alive!, which she founded in 2015, Dana experiences the perfect mating of The Joy of Facilitation with The Pleasure of Writing, Often, With Others.

An 8 mm video camera

Submitted By: nehalembayexperience@gmail.com – Click to email about this post
My wonderful old 8mm needs to be put up on a shelf and I need a replacement. Not concerned with the camera aspect of the unit but the clear play back of tapes. Also need it to have separate audio (white)/video (yellow) output ports. Glad to pay a reasonable price and will take very good care of the camera. Cheers, Drew.

Community Member seeking honest work

Hi North Coast Community!

My name is Bill Miller and I’m still fairly new to the area. I am currently working as a vet technician at Nehalem Animal Healing Center. I now own my first cat “Angel”, and have loved animals all my life. Working at the vet is a part-time opportunity, and I have been doing odd jobs on the side to help make a living.

I am friendly, compassionate, a very hard worker, and I pay close attention to detail. I’ve mostly been doing landscaping and house cleaning since moving to the coast. I currently reside in Nehalem, near the Animal Rescue. I always come to work with a positive attitude. I have 11 years of experience in the restaurant industry so I am no stranger to hard labor and cleanliness. I have gone through extensive training, including serve safe certification. If I am hired as a cleaner I make sure to use proper products and procedures. No matter what, I make sure the job is done right the first time!
I am primarily looking for yard work jobs in the area, as I love to work outdoors, however I am willing to clean kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, you name it. We are never to good to do a job, even if it’s dirty. I work quickly, efficiently and ask for very reasonable compensation. If there are pets involved I am more than happy to help take care of them as well! I am a natural with all types of animals, and I am trained to do nail trims as an additional service if needed. If anyone is in need of a reliable, honest, hardworking guy to help out at home, please feel free to reach out to me on here. Also my personal cell phone is fine (413) 695-2215! You may also contact me via email at, xmiller1324@gmail.com. Thank you so much for your time and I look forward to hearing from you!

Best Wishes, Sincerely, Bill Miller

Looking for a good guitar

Submitted By: ryanjpedersen@gmail.com – Click to email about this post
Hello community. I am in need of a good acoustic guitar: full body, steel string, good sound. I have an acoustic electric that just doesn’t cut it. Of course I could go buy something new, but I’ve always had guitars with soul and life already used into them. I prefer it that way, don’t mind bruises. If anyone has a good acoustic that is gathering dust or that they’re interested in selling, let me know. Thanks, as always and happy Spring!
