Curious News Items from Oregon Coast - the Latest

Much has happened on the Oregon coast lately, including a fight for cancer in Lincoln City, the Seaside Aquarium gives birth to literally thousands of creatures, a look at the galaxy from the perspective of Cannon Beach, and why elk and pelicans are a big deal right now. You can also get a preview of August events in Seaside, Astoria, Cannon Beach, Manzanita, Nehalem, Tillamook, Garibaldi, Pacific City, Lincoln City, Depoe Bay, Yachats, Florence, Waldport and Newport.

What's up with gas prices? Well, that's not good news. But in better news: the state is holding a photo contest, ODFW wants your photos of fun on the beach or in the forests, and there's a new attraction in Newport for history buffs.
