Why Langlois is or should be world famous

So are the citizens of Langlois delusional??

WE THINK NOT.

Reasons:

1) We take pride in the fact that the name Langlois stirs up so much interest in the pronunciation. The subject is a great ice breaker  and is often the first question asked by visitors.

Langlois is a variant of the French "L'anglais" meaning the Englishman which seems to indicate the family name started when some English showed in France post-Norman conquest era. The variations in pronunciation stem from Anglicization and then Americanization down through the years.  There are variations still among Guernsey (home of our founding family) and Jersey Islands The name is not quite on par with the Welsh town of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwy rndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. So really, one might  we have it easy, but  is still up for debate.  One of most accepted version is Langless stemming from a phonetic version of the 1860 Federal census of our Founding Family

 

  

  

However, the citation in Oregon's Names; How to Say Them and Where They are Located? by Bert Webber ( a well respected historian) lists the pronunciation as LANG lois.

The locals have their own take on the name: Lang lois  Langwau, Lang o ise, Lang lewis , Lang lis , Lang loy and probably more. Here are some samples from us locals.

Dungeness crab season set to open on Friday

 

 
Despite fears that the season opener for Dungeness crab could be further delayed, commercial fishermen will be able to set their gear Tuesday in parts of Oregon and Washington state, fishery managers announced. Fishermen will be able to start pulling their gear on Friday.
 
The valuable commercial fishery traditionally starts on Dec. 1, but was delayed after tests showed crab had not filled out enough. In Oregon, from Cape Arago south to Gold Beach, crab are still below the state’s meat quality criteria and these areas will remain closed.
 
According to recent testing in Oregon and Washington state, crab in the areas that will open are just over the threshold.
