Editor’s Note: Adventures on the Southern Oregon Coast is the product of the South Coast Partnership which includes the towns from Brookings to Reedsport and all the wonderful fans in between.

I am a lucky man. I grew up here in Reedsport and its warm and inviting environment nurtured me. I knew the lady down the street and the gentleman at the store. I knew all my teachers, they knew my parents.

Now, many years later, not much has changed. I still know the folks down the street. We wave at one another and we stop and talk. I know the great people in the stores, in our terrific volunteer fire department and the parents of the students I teach in school. Reedsport remains the warm and nurturing place in which I grew up. It is a place where my daughters are safe walking to the park. It is a place where people go out of there way to help one another. It is a place filled with citizens dedicated to our community.

It is true, of course, that this community has its share of concerns, like any other. But we also have a “can do” spirit and a desire to leave to our children a community that all can be proud of. We have a unique ability to work together, solve problems and make a positive difference.

From our responsive public governing bodies, to our excellent library, from our terrific hospital and superb doctors to our amazing support for our schools, Reedsport is, still, quite the place.

My wife and daughters and I encourage all of you to come and enjoy this special place. We hope you stay a while, or longer.

Keith Tymchuk
Mayor, City of Reedsport

    Heading to Yachats for several days middle of next month, traveling from California to Ashland to Elkton and then following the Umpqua to the coast to Reedsport, and taking a rest before heading north. Have always enjoyed the area — it’s comfortable, unpretentious, and just wonderful. Those who live / work there, you are indeed very lucky.
