yeah sorry about the repeats.....something was wrong on topix's end and they didn't show up until days later...which made me re-enter them, because i didn't see them appear for a while. Thought they weren't taking.....  (Mar 29, 2007 | post #7)

Garibaldi

It was indeed named after Giuseppe. The town was so named by Daniel Dodge Bayley, who came to this area of the north Oregon coast in the late 1800's. There's a statue dedicated to garibaldi in the town. you can see more on the place at BeachConnection.ne t - go to the bottom and do a search on garibaldi  (Mar 18, 2007 | post #5)

Can someone tell me about Seal Rock and Newport?

nah....that's not necessarily true. if we sound like we want to spook people, most of us oregonians are jsut trying to be realistic and lay it on the line. Some of the comments here come acress as deterants, though. I see that. Most are just trying to point out the possible negatives....tryin g to make sure you know what you're getting into. I wouldn't blame a soul for wanting to come here. It's awesome. i can't imagine living anywhere else. this is one very considerate, caring state. MOre than i can say for most of the rest of the world, or the rest of this nation. just one caution, carlos: do NOT move to Salem. Weird, creeepy people, ill-natured population. It's nasty. I actually have empiracal evidence to back this up, from an in-depth story i researched a few years back while a newspaper reporter. the statistics play it out. leave salem alone  (Feb 18, 2007 | post #9)

Considering Moving to newport seaside lincoln city or can...

i live part time in newport and in portland, and as i've heard for years that coastal living standards are "portland housing prices - coastal wages"...mean ing it's not ideal for finding a good place on coastal service industry wages. And service industry is what's mostly on the coast. i would actually prefer living in seaside - and yes, it is more touristy at first glance - but actually if you just spend a little more time on the N. coast, the culture is much cooler and more progressive than central coast. So i would disagree that it is touristy on the whole, however. It's actually lots of fun.... If i had my first choice, i'd be living in manzanita, actually...but that's a whole other story. Then again, i work in promoting tourism (i run a publication out here), not the service industry...so my job is year round and never slows much. the slow time of the year is something to consider very seriously....but many make it through in all the coastal towns i know initimately (i regularly deal with about 12 of them). as to nightlife - and i'm a former music writer - don't expect much. the "Meth house" comment about newport's live scene is exaggerated....the re's one bar i wouldn't touch. But the Sand Bar is a decent place....Moby's is ok, although not for the faint-hearted....a nd blu cork wine bar is a shining beacon on the entire coast - indeed the whole state. Lincoln City i really like for its hefty dose of portland expatriates...cool people. And quite a nightlife going on there, for a small town. But hardly anything in walking distance, however, as it's spread over something like seven miles in one long strip. Seaside is much smaller than newport, but plenty going on for its size. Very bustling at night, compared to other coastal towns. Still...nothing like Miami. You may seriously consider portland at first, with its laidback attitude, friendly people, BIG nightlife scene and service industry jobs in abundance. Then hit the coast. Eugene has a lot going on during school year, but shrinks substantially when college kids go home. It is somewhat economically depressed, from what i understand (granted i'm not as familiar with it as i am portland and the coast). Corvallis - can't answer that. If you hate heat, this is the place. only about three weeks worth of serious heat in portland in the summer...rest is mild. No heat on the coast, however...but lots of rain, as was said above.  (Feb 12, 2007 | post #9)

manzanita area restaurants

for such a small town, there's a lot there in good ol' quirky MZ. Left coast siesta and terra cotta stand out..... but up the street (about 12 miles) Cannon Beach Fultano's has some of THE most incredible pasta i've ever had. ohhhh my god.... then again...there's a ton of good eats in CB as well.....like The Bistro, Newman's at 988 and the list goes on. If you're in Newport per chance....gotta check out Village Market & deli....incredible gourmet cusine that will knock your socks off. And somewhere betweent the two (about 20 miles south of MZ)....Bay City has this unbelievable seafood place called Pacific Oyster. I'm not even a big seafood fan, but i can't get enough of their cioppino  (Jan 20, 2007 | post #1)

Living in Oregon

Lisa.....good choice to move to oregon!!! (and why can't people leave the political discussion for someone ELSE's post??? jeez....) I swear....not all oregonians need to hear themselves spout off about politics and such. anyway....it is a beautiful state...and you can't beat the coastline (check out www.beachconnectio n.net .....especially if you're considering moving there). I'm personally divided between portland and the coast. Do NOT move to salem, however....creepy place....creepy people....you'll be in trouble there. Most of the other towns in oregon are quite friendly, however...and a lot of fun.  (Jan 9, 2007 | post #82)

This headline should read "Portland Man Forced to Bend Over By EBay" This is the kind of monstrous behavior indicitive of some mafia organization or some communist regime, and goes well beyond inhibiting a fair marketplace. This kind of strong-arming should be illegal. Besides, it makes no sense. A domain name involving Depoe Bay CLEARLY has nothing to do with E Bay. Oregonians should boycott these creeps at E Bay.....and i wouldn't be above encouraging some sort of email harassment campaign. This is just plain wrong. Ebay needs to be halted in its tracks.  (Dec 13, 2006 | post #1)

Elton John wants religion banned

i don't normally become engaged in frivolous discussions like this...but i just HAVE to say.... the joke is on all of you. He's a dippy rock star...not a learned scientist or someone worthy of intellectual respect.... how the HELL can anyone take this silly comment seriously??? Banning religion makes no sense....it was some knee-jerk emotional statement made by, well, let's face it....a madman across the water....and then rocketed further into the public eye by his team of publicists. Isn't that obvious?? and don't you know that all you biggots and gay-haters are being played by this comment of John's? i'm aghast at the Internet surfing public even wasting their time on this thread of comments. By the way....Batman CAN beat up Jesus. And if you don't know where that quote came from....don't bother responding to it. You're just playing into my own PR game.  (Nov 16, 2006 | post #422)

Newport, OR

Can someone tell me about Seal Rock and Newport?

although that feeling sometimes exists...that's pretty overstated. and when it does happen, it is...as you put it...a few simple-minded people's opinions...." Newport really is an awesome place....that has quite a few californians (really, the whole state does). There's this sizable and growing contingent there from elsewhere that's well to do. Sometimes some locals resent that more than anything. I know loads of portlanders who live there part time....including myself. You stick with that crowd....you'll have a blast. The few instances that i know of where slants were made against cali expatriates was when the meanies used that to slam them for some other reason that the californians had annoyed them. Like many stupid things...it's an insult used because they're mad about something else or in a dispute over something. There's more cool stuff about newport at www.beachconnectio n.net ......lots o' details.  (Aug 12, 2006 | post #2)
