• Written in stone — Somber memorials recall county’s sacrifice

    The plaza of stone, concrete and bronze, hidden beneath a bluff of sand and sea grasses, often comes as a surprise to people strolling along the oceanfront path at Nye Beach. “I didn’t know it was here,” said Randy Yost, 65, a visitor from Portland who didn’t serve in the military but lost classmates and friends to a conflict that scarred his generation.

A whole new Kye

Kye Blaser cut his hair. For nearly two years, Kye Blaser let his hair grow. It was his way of honoring one of his mentors, Robert Winters, who had passed away in 2015. Before each basketball game his senior year he would have his hair braided into cornrows — giving birth to Kornrow Kye. When the Oregon State basketball Instagram account posted before and after photos of his haircut prior to the season opener, former teammates went: “Who is that guy?” wrote Bryan Tapia.

Column: A golden era comes to an end

There aren’t many things that a good breakfast — of bacon, eggs, hash browns and a cup of orange juice — a good night sleep, family and a conversation can’t fix. For Newport’s senior goalkeeper Luis Reyes, that was the remedy to get past the Newport boys’ soccer loss 2-1 in the 4A state quarterfinals to Madras, ending the Cubs’ chances at winning a state title for a third straight season. “The loss hurt because that was a bad way to get knocked out knowing that we were a better team and that we could’ve beat them at our house,” Reyes said. Playing on a field that Reyes described as “having holes, sprinklers and more holes” proved to be a challenge for the Cubs who play most of their games on field turf. Madras was able to get away with a physical brand of soccer that overstepped the line between aggressive and dangerous.

Cubs XC climbs higher

Maybe it was the Tsunami Runs — a run where Newport runners dip their toe in the ocean then charge through Agate Beach, through Big Creek Park, up and down Newport Heights to Yaquina Heights, through Bay Road and finally a run up John Moore Drive — that prepared the Newport cross country team for the state meet. Or maybe it’s the Whoopty Doo runs where the Cubs run up and down the hills that feed into the bayfront that did it. “The offseason stuff is all hills,” said head coach Tom Swinford.

Spink, Johns, Fanning ready for state

For the second time in four years, the Newport boys cross country team claimed a district title. Which, to the team, didn’t come as a surprise. “I felt like it wasn’t unexpected,” said senior Leo Johns. “The thing we always worried about was state. We knew we had what it took to win districts.” And the Cubs did just that. Led by junior Kolby Spink (16:04, third-place finish), all seven Newport runners — Johns (16:19, sixth) Tristian Scarborough (16:45, ninth) Caden Shanks (17:15, 13th) James Lackey (17:29, 18th) Noah Goodwin-Rice (17:35, 19th) and Sam Laurel (17:56, 23rd) finished in the top-23.

Comeback Cubs

It was a moment that Newport’s Oscar Jimenez had been waiting for his entire life. With regulation nearing an end in a 3-3 game, the two-time defending state champion Newport soccer team was needing a goal to advance past Gladstone in the play-in round of the 4A playoffs. In the 79th minute, Jimenez got the ball near midfield and, as senior Tryston Wolf said, “went full-Mbappe’.” Like the 19-year-old up French football phenom, Kylian Mbappe’, Jimenez weaved his way through multiple defenders until he finally found himself in the clear with a shot on goal. And Jimenez did not miss.
