Ilwaco
Oct 20-Mar 31 Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum: Rewind to the 1960s–Peninsula’s Past – The 1960s were a decade of change on the Long Beach Peninsula. In 1961, the loss of the fishing vessel Mermaid and the motor lifeboat Triumph became the impetus for the founding of the National Motor Lifeboat School at Cape Disappointment in 1968. Red’s Café was the place to be in Ilwaco and Marsh’s in Long Beach made an exciting new acquisition with Jake the Alligator Man. Developers “found the beach” and created new communities such as Surfside Estates and Tides West. Roads were expanded and the “new” Astoria/Megler Bridge made a great impact on everyday life. The exhibition highlights everyday life on the Peninsula in the ‘60s and documents many of these changes. columbiapacificheritagemuseum.org 360-642-3446

Sidney’s plan, which he devises with his wife’s help, is to offer collaboration to the student, an idea which the younger man quickly accepts.

A colleague has written a best-selling case history book and is now rolling in royalties.

Needing cash, Victor reluctantly takes on a new patient who, due to love frustration, is grinding out a rip-roaring sex novel. By mistake, his nurse gives the patient’s manuscript to Donnelly believing it to be Victor’s work. Suddenly Victor has an enormous advance royalty check, a Book of the Month Club selection, and a potential Pulitzer Prize. When he discovers that it is his patient’s inviolate confidences and not his clinical casebook that has saved the day, Victor determines to keep his patient crazy until he dreams up the final chapter. Meanwhile, Back on the Couch is fast-paced, hilarious, and zany. All performances at Theatre West.

Before anyone can leave, a police officer reports that a snowstorm has closed the roads and an axe murderer is on the loose. Stranded with no phone, no television and no radio, the writers may kill each other before the murderer gets to them. It’s an avalanche of laughter with more twists and turns than a giant slalom.

Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name “Sylvia” on her name tag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn’t understand the relationship between man and dog.

May 10-Jul 08 Coos History Museum: Exhibit “I Am Not Invisible” – I Am Not Invisible is a remarkable exhibition featuring 20 portraits of Oregon
women military veterans. There are more than 28,000 women veterans in
Oregon — a number that has risen steadily over the past three decades —
representing almost one-tenth of Oregon’s veteran population. And yet, women
veterans continue to face significant barriers and challenges in accessing
necessary health care and other services, while experiencing a lack of
recognition unlike their male counterparts. By spotlighting the many faces of
this diverse and important segment of the Oregon veteran community, IANI aims
to increase awareness and dialogue about women veterans, as well as open
viewers’ eyes to the myriad contributions, needs and experiences of women who
have served in the military.cooshistory.org

Jun 05 Coos History Museum: Lecture Series, “Sasquatch Man-Ape or Myth?” – Starts at 6:30pm featuring David George Gordon Author/Speaker & Sasquatch Scholar. People in the Northwest have been reporting encounters with the Sasquatch—a hairy, eight to ten foot-tall hominid —for hundreds of years. Yet aside from a collection of large footprint casts and several fairly convincing eyewitness accounts, no scientifically accepted evidence has been offered to establish this being’s existence. This illustrated talk looks at ways to become an effective
“citizen scientist,” gathering credible evidence that can be used to prove or disprove the Sasquatch’s existence. Audience members are encouraged to tell their tales and share their experiences with this mysterious creature – a favorite part of this thought-provoking evening. David George Gordon is the author of The Sasquatch Seeker’s Field Manual: Using Citizen Science to Uncover North America’s Most Elusive Creature. An accomplished science communicator, he has spoken at the American Museum of Natural History, Yale University, the Smithsonian Institution and more. Copies of David’s book will be available for purchase in the Coos History Museum store. A book signing will follow the lecture.

Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University and Justice on the Grand Ronde Tribe Court of Appeals. North America was colonized under an international legal principle that is known today as the Doctrine of Discovery. The Doctrine provided that newly arrived Europeans automatically acquired property rights in native lands and gained governmental, political, and commercial rights over the inhabitants without the knowledge or the consent of the indigenous people. Professor Miller will explain the doctrine and how it became American Manifest Destiny and led to the United States acquiring the Oregon Country. Copies of Dr. Miller’s book, Discovering Indigenous Lands: The Doctrine of Discovery in the English Colonies will be available for sale in the Coos History Museum store. A book signing will follow the lecture. cooshistory.org
