Welcome to my Oceanside Village web site. If you’ve stumbled upon this site…we’re talking Oceanside Oregon, small if not tiny unincorporated village.
This site is designed for those who are fortunate enough to have settled here full time, for those who long to be, and for all community members with a stake in Oceanside’s future. Its first use was to share information to rapidly inform the community of an application to open a commercial mining operation on the edge of the community boundary.
Since then, I’ve discovered that some of the issues most important to the community don’t always get shared broadly, not everyone reads the local paper (which does a fine job today of covering issues like the $30mm sewage treatment plant) and certainly the newspaper can’t publish the full source documents of stories. So a site such as this presents an opportunity for a deeper (if not irreverent at times) look as well as a chance to honor the charm and beauty of the place.
I also have a passion for photography. WordPress, the software service I use to publish OVV, has improved the way photos can be published so you’ll find more photos littering my blog too. (You’re welcome to reuse what you find for any non-commmercial pupose so long as you drop me a line and provide attribution).
Here you’ll find my uptake on a range of activities that you may not easily find elsewhere. I’d love to hear from you if you find this site of interest, have something you’d like to share, or maybe have an information mystery you’d like solved.
Thanks for dropping in.
