Thanks for help with promotion

The community of Charleston and the Charleston Merchant’s Association thank The World, Adventure Coast, North Bend Lanes and the Bay Area for helping to promote our dedication of the Charleston Crosswalk and Islands. Huapill ukuleles, Furry Fiends and dedicated marchers joined the frivolity. Tim Novney and Cam Parry contributed the official dedication. The volunteers of the Charleston Visitors Center and many friends that participated are greatly appreciated. Charleston is proud to be a member of Oregon’s Adventure Coast. We invite all to come and enjoy the adventures it offers.

Airport is not a success story

When we need to use airline travel, we have for the last decade, used other airports, Eugene or Portland. Since 2008, when Horizon pulled out of OTH (North Bend Regional Airport) with service to Portland, getting anywhere with reasonable connections has been problematic.

Today was the first time in probably six years that I had a booked a flight to Denver via San Francisco from OTH. It was cancelled. I rebooked a flight from Eugene. I just mailed in my ballot and have placed my votes for Coos County Airport District. I voted for three pilots and new faces to perhaps make a change in the way this airport functions. They are C. Brent Pahls, Pat Elliot, and Jason Bell. Right now, it is not a success story, especially when considering what it has been in the past. The terminal rebuild is another issue, best not go there.
