Save the Seadog

You probably already head, the SeaDog fishing vessel caught fire while in port in Newport (a local Charleston boat). The wheelhouse is a total loss. Long time resident of the area including Port Orford and Bandon, owner and Captain John Mygatt will not be able to rebuild without the help from the community. And we don’t need to loose yet another fishing boat from our fleet!

from http://www.savetheseadog.com

  • From deck hand to engineer and now the Owner and Captain of the SeaDog, John Mygatt has served our community and our fleet of fishermen for over 15 years! Now he needs our help!
  • Every day the fishermen in our local fleet risk their lives to bring precious fresh cargo from the Pacific Ocean to our tables. We sit back and enjoy the tuna, cod, salmon, crab and some - even the eels! They don't get rich and the life is hard but their love of the Sea keeps them going. Some of the small, individually owned boats, barely make enough to make ends meet and pay the bills, spending what's left just to continue fishing. A disaster or unexpected repair costing just a few thousand dollars can threaten their continued operation, keeping them from fishing and providing for their families.
  • So we ask you, their community to join together and help us create a fund to help them. Donations received in excess of those used to repair the SeaDog will be placed into a fund to help the next boat survive... Please give generously!

Southern Oregon Journal: Coast trip turns up Bigfoot and Langlois

By Peggy Dover for the Mail Tribune

It was another cool, bright morning on the Southern Oregon coast — perfect for tunes and a leisurely drive. One nice thing about south coast traffic is there’s far less of it than with the mass of tourist assemblage to the north. The luxury of time I enjoyed meant embracing U-turns for whatever caught my eye. Passing lanes at regular intervals allowed those not hunting for a chain-sawed, wooden Bigfoot sculpture to ease on down the road.

A couple of towns on Oregon’s south coast catch my attention each night on the evening weather map. In all my traversing 101, I can’t recall even passing through Langlois or Sixes, yet there are representative dots on the map, siren communities calling for exploration. I determined to hunt them down, find out how to pronounce Langlois, and learn why they deserve a forecast.
