Food Share Benefit and Historical Discoveries
on Central Oregon Coast

(Newport, Oregon) – More history is coming to light
in the Newport area, thanks to a donation of fascinating photographs,
and a major, one-of-a-kind event is set to benefit a local charity.
The second annual Be Jeweled event comes to Newport, Oregon
on February 7, featuring a wide variety of jewelry for sale – all
to benefit Food Share of Lincoln County.

bracelets, rings with diamonds, jade pendants and a ton of other treasures.
Better yet, all the goodies are priced from 25 cents to $25.
Be Jeweled happens 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Newport Senior
Activity Center, 20 S.E. 2nd Street, Newport, Oregon (one block off Highway

Be Jeweled was inspired by a similar sale on the East Coast
and promises to be an annual Newport happening. Many attendees described
last year's event as the ultimate in recycled jewelry sales.
This year each Be Jeweled buyer will receive merchant coupon/discount
sheets. Shoppers from out of the area and local patrons alike will have
a chance to enjoy free or discounted items from many Newport merchants.

In the realm of history, a collection of maritime photographs
taken by James Haron has been donated to the Lincoln County Historical
Society. Haron made the decision to donate the photos just prior to his
death July 29, 2008. Haron spent 35 years photographing Newport and Depoe
Bay focusing on the ships and maritime activities of the area. He recorded
ships entering the harbors alphabetically from the “Aallotar”
to the “Zarembo II.” The collection, which includes thousands
of photos, came in the form of albums and notebooks.

“These photos will help researchers now and in the
future document the vessels and activities of our harbors,” Loretta
Harrison, executive director of the Society, said. “James’
photos will be featured prominently at the new Pacific Maritime &
Heritage Center when it opens on Newport’s Bayfront. We will seek
a grant or other financial assistance to scan and catalog the photos in
this amazing collection.”

archivist for the Society, at 541-265-7509. The research library is open
