Swafford on Wine: Reflections on Seafood and Wine Festival, #42

For 42 years our Newport Seafood and Wine Festival, originally created to bring visitors and business to the coast during the slow winter weeks, has successfully met its goal. Though many locals complain about the traffic congestion that the four-day event creates as Newport nearly doubles in population, they begrudgingly appreciate the surge of business and the fact that it has become the chamber of commerce’s biggest revenue source. The SWF Committee has become such a well-oiled machine that lines to enter the tent have been virtually eliminated; bus shuttles and taxis have reduced driving and drinking incidents — one

Oregon Sells Bonds To Pay The Elliott State Forest’s Obligation To Schools

Oregon sold $100 million in bonds on Thursday to pay a portion of the Elliott State Forest’s obligation to raise money for schools.

The bond sale is the cornerstone of a new plan to separate the Elliott State Forest from its requirement to raise revenue for the Common School Fund.

In the past, the state has raised revenue for the Common School Fund through logging in the Elliott State Forest near the

Fishing boat capsizes on Yaquina Bay bar, 3 killed – The Register

PORTLAND — A commercial crabbing boat capsized in rough waters off the Oregon coast, killing the three men aboard and sending a shock wave through a seafaring community already struggling from a month-long delay to the annual crabbing season.

The U.S. Coast Guard said the vessel, the Mary B. II, overturned about 10 p.m. Tuesday as it crossed Yaquina Bay bar in Newport, Oregon. The bar is one of the most notorious off the Oregon coast and authorities said crews faced 12- to 14-foot (3.6- to 4.2-meter) waves as they tried to rescue the fishermen.

Breaching Snake River dams could save salmon and orcas, but destroy livelihoods

Most of them will tell you that they, too, love chinook salmon, cherish orcas and see both as iconic Northwest species. They, too, know about the steady decline of the Salish Sea’s southern resident killer whale population. They, too, watched that poor mother whale push her dead
