About the Editor: My name is Vago Christopher Damitio. I’m a writer first, the owner of Reedsport Antiques second, and now the editor of Reedsport.info. Before all of that, I’m a family man, a USMC vet, and a proud member of this community. I published my first magazine in my 20s and have worked in journalism off and on ever since. As an editor and writer – I’ve wanted to see Reedsport focus more on our arts and natural resources – it’s my hope that Reedsport.info will be able to fill that niche. If I haven’t met you yet, I look forward to it!

  1. Thank you so much for creating this paper! As a newbie to Reedsport it’s been quite helpful and enjoyable to read.

  2. Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at Noon on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at The Umpqua River Inn and Suites, 45209 State Highway 38, Reedsport, OR 97467.

    “Katrina – A first hand account” is the main topic presented by Eddie Cox. Mr. Cox has a Masters degree in Emergency Management and more than a decade as a Terrorism Liaison Officer for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. He was the training director for the National Center for Biodefense Solutions, teaching First Responders in Decon, Triage, target hardening and response for Mass Casualty Incidents. SWOP meetings always start with a question and answer period before the main topic so all in attendance get a chance to participate.

    This is a free public meeting to get to know fellow local preppers in southwestern Oregon counties and to exchange information and ideas. It is important for individuals to understand that they will be “on their own” in the event of a disaster and not to depend on receiving outside help.
