You will have better luck going through graigs list, or the south coast shopper.
Good luck

Wow--------I lived in the area for years and I wish you luck as you are going to need it. I can not think of any advice for you. My husband was in the mortgage business and it is dead there. Please check things out very well before you make such a big move. Maybe, another area would be better for you. I wish you alot of luck and happiness.

So are you dead-set on Coos Bay, or are you open to other coast towns like Newport or Lincoln City?

My husband grew up in the Coos Bay/North Bend area and we raised our children from birth until the oldest one graduated there. We had wanted out of Coos Bay for years but couldnt make it happen until 5 years ago. When we FINALLY were able to move to Eugene, I wanted to pinch myself the first couple of years to make sure I wasn't dreaming!
My kids had a great childhood there, but you have to really work at it to keep them out of the drug and alcohol scene. There is NOTHING for older kids to do so they usually hang out at the beach, partying. Good things going for kids.....Boys and Girls club is nice, decent skating rink.....uuuhhhmm.....Marshfield High football is fun.....(or it was when they were winning! LOL) Great sense of community revolving around sports. We left my daughters Jr year, and her friends all turned into the biggest partiers ever. I am SO thankful we got out of there! The community always raises a stink about new industries or businesses coming in, so anything that could happen to help revitalize it, is killed my dumb people. That was really aggravating to us, and it is still happening. I would never, ever return there for ANYTHING. Drugs and crime is a HUGE problem. If you want coast, Newport or Lincoln City would probably be your better option. But I honestly don't know too much about them either. Living in Eugene , the coast is only an hour away, good enough for me. :-) Best move we ever made.

Im sorry you had such a time here. But its good to hear you found somewhere that you are happy in !
we've lived here for about 5 yrs now, and love it. I was so worried about the drugs/poverty level/tightknit groupies/etc. when we moved here, i was set to move out asap! but now we love it. maybe its jsut been in these last few years, but there seems to be enough for my teen and her friends to do w/keeping out of trouble. The boys and girls club expanded a teen center and they do all sorts of activites on a regular basis. Including teen nights, teen cooking classes, dances, field trips, fitness clubs, and have really started doing a lot w/community events. My girl is involved w/future leaders of america where they have had community leaders come in and spend hours talking to the kids about their jobs and how to get there, they also let the kids come to their workplace and see the jobs onsite. They have leadership programs where the older kids/teens are mentoring the grade school/jr high kids in everything from school work, to running their own fitness type programs. They just had Mrs Coos County here again, and that turn out was pretty great. They had a wonderful group of girls to choose from. Mr Bulldog just raised an amazing amount of money w/some really unique activities, and the community involvement seemed pretty intense.
I work w/several of the kids from the HS that are all Jr/Srs w/a few of the recently graduated mixed in. They are all good kids and havent had any probs keeping away from the drugs/alchohol and any out of hand partying. Im not saying they are perfect, and have never been to a party before, but they and their buddies are good trustworthy people that are making the right choices.
We've actually seen less of the hard core stuff since moving here, then we did in the CLackamas area, or what my niece is having as a HS Sr. in the Forest Grove area. Grant you, it does happen, heck, we got burglarized by some idiot punk who was 21 and on meth. A real winner of a creep. sigh. BUT, there are an awful lot of good kids out here too and we feel confident in raising our 3 kids right here.
BTW, sadly, the skating rink went away a couple years ago....its been a re-sale shop for the last 3yrs or so.
And i agree, it can be difficult for a new buisness to come in. Especially a big, well known one. LIke our HOme Depot. We were looking Sooo forward to that! But you shouldve seen the comments in the paper!! wow! It wasnt the community that was against it, appearently, from what ive read and gathered, the difficulty came from the Coquille Indian Tribe that owned the land. Darn it!
How ironic that i moved here about the same time you moved out.....thats kinda funky.
anyhow, its not for everyone, but we sure like it here.
Tiffany
ps...Newport is a beautiful area! Ive always loved it there.

Perferct! I thank you both for your comments, As I think anywhere you have a fear of your kids falling into the wrong crowd, but I also think the severities of these activities have alot to do with the communtity that you live in, SO to me going to a party on a beach having a little to drink or smoke, is a far cry from some of the things I had to differentiate my self from. I have read a little about there being a meth problem? Is this manily surrounding the "sorry no offence" the timber workers, or is this a huge problem for the high school? Not sure if I mentioned our ages but being 25 and 26 just wanted to know if there are alot of young couples or if what Im reading is correct and 45-50 is the avarage age????? I could be way off, but would like to get to know some younger parents. All of the things Ive been reading about kit flying, beach combing, and I love to dive, it may be a little cold but, I could catch my dinner and that sound like a wonderfull change of lifestyle, Anyone know how to get an opinion of a local youngster???? 15-20, the reason I ask is they seem to have extreamly different opnions and vary based on who they hang out with, And tend to obscured point of view that We all had at that age but is extreamly honest to them... does that make sence if not I appoligize along with my grammer and spelling, in a bit of a hurry..

THANKS
