Surpises in Langlois

Very nice langlois writeup from Sotheby's International Realty

Langlois, Oregon, an “unincorporated community” 17 miles south of Bandon and 13 miles north of Port Orford is one of those “blink and you’ll miss it” kind of places. It has a population of fewer than 200 souls, and from the highway one will see a restaurant, market, coffee shop, farm store, library, and post office. Langlois, however, is much more than meets the eye. Despite its relatively uneventful history, it’s taken on a fairly hip vibe recently, and it seems to just be getting hipper.

Langlois sits just under 2.5 miles from the ocean as the crow flies and just north of where Floras Creek meanders its way under the highway on its way to the New River and the Pacific. Approaching it from the north, one notices rolling hills, flat farmland, and most of all, verdant green as far as the eye can see.

Artists wanted for Veteran related murals for Curry Annex Building

What do you get when you take an old parking garage, add walls, and desks? You get the County Annex Building – the location of Commissioner meetings, tax payments, building permits, and other general county services. What do you get when you add art? A cultural attraction for visitors to explore and the artists to be proud of -- the Veterans Mural Project, Phase 1.

Curry County is seeking youth groups, art classes, artists and other interested parties to paint Veteran related murals on the inside walls of the County Annex. “We are a county that honors veterans, so we decided our theme should be Veterans“, noted Board of County Commissioners Chair, Christopher Paasch, who was recently appointed by the President last week to the National Veterans and Military Services Committee. “We want people engaged in county government, and this is a good way to introduce youth, or other interested parties, to what happens in our building. We also hope to add some more art to our cultural inventory”.

Interested parties are asked to propose a scope of work that will be reviewed by Commissioner Sue Gold, Veteran’s Service Officer Anthony Voudy, and Director of Operations Julie Schmelzer. The available wall space is approximately eight feet in height and varies in widths. There is no charge for the ‘canvas’, but artists must supply their own paints and tarps. All painting must be done during normal business hours, which are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. If interested, contact Schmelzer at the Board of Commissioners’ Office or by e-mail at schmelzerj@co.curry.or.us.

Why is the project called ‘Phase 1’? It is the county’s intent to inspire building owners and artists to partner together to create more visual art in Curry County.

Western World: New sign for Langlois Cheese Factory

LANGLOIS - When Dennis Bowman, owner of the Langlois Cheese Factory, approached a local sign maker, Rod Smith, owner of All Around Signs in North Bend, about restoring the decades-old sign in front of the building, he learned some history.

The two men that mentored Smith in the sign business were still living in the North Bend area, Bowman discovered. They both worked on the original sign in the late 1950s when they were starting their careers in sign making. Bowman contacted the men, and along with his neighbor and Smith, they restored the sign with an "almost" replica, which included painting it and wiring it for lighting. Though the new sign doesn't have neon like the original, it will be lighted.
