    Classes to focus on balance, cognitive fitness

    Brenda Luntzel, fitness specialist at the Newport Recreation Center, is offering classes on less familiar types of exercise, such as balance and neuromotor exercises, which she says are just as important as aerobic and strength training, but many people have less knowledge on what to do or how to do them correctly. Classes will be offered on two different days and times. Attend only one class to learn the information, or attend all of them and make it part of your exercise program for the week. The classes are free for people with an annual Newport Rec Center pass. For non-members, there is a $6 drop-in fee per class.

4th Annual Crab Blessing

Families, fishermen and community members gathered at the North Jetty look-out at Yaquina Bay State Park on Friday, Jan. 4 for the 4th Annual Crab Blessing, a ceremony held on the season-opener to pray over the crab fleet as they head out to sea. Along with more than 70 people in attendance, Pastor Luke Frechette broadcasted a community prayer aboard the U.S. Coast Guard motor lifeboat, Victory on Facebook Live and VHF Marine Channel 73. “We try to cover it so that as many people can hear it as possible,” event-organizer Sharon Biddinger said, “It seems like everyone in this community is related to a fisherman or knows a fisherman and it’s really nice to have something on a big level that is still so intimate.” (Photos by Shelby Wolfe)
