Two State Champion hurdlers are Coast Radio Sports’ Athletes of the year: senior Joseph Dotson and junior Mikaela Siegel; both from Siuslaw High School.
Dotson was a standout football and basketball player for the Vikings. He also competed at this year’s Summit Decathlon in Bend where he finished in fourth place with 6034 points. Dotson claimed the state championship in the 300-meter hurdles at the 4A meet two weeks ago.
Siegel was also a multi-sport athlete for Siuslaw. She finished fourth individually at the Far West District Cross County Meet in the fall; was named to the Far West League All-Defensive Team for basketball; finished fifth at the Summit Heptathlon; and won the state 4A championship in the 100 meter hurdles.

Our Town is crossing over! Coast Radio's Our Town, the monthly public affairs program about things happening in and around our town, will now be reaired on KCFM every month.
You can still tune in to KCST, 106.9 FM on the first Wednesday of each month to listen to Our Town, but if you miss it, you can tune in the next morning at 10:00 AM on KCFM to hear the program in its entirety.
If you still missed it, or you just want to hear it again, come back to KCFM on the following Sunday at 10:00 for one more airing.
The July 1st edition of Our Town featured conversations with the founders of the Oregon Coast Military Museum. After a seven year effort, the grand opening of the facility is set for the afternoon of July 4th. Tim Sapp, Wayne Sharpe, Call Applebee and Sue Gilday have all been instrumental in the formation of the museum.
A legislative recap is on the list of topics as well. Host Bob Sneddon will talk with Oregon Representative Caddy McKeown and State Senator Arnie Roblan about the current legislative session that is winding down.
Also in the studio will be Carol Slaugh and Joy McCourt. Slaugh is the founder of "Minutes of Gold", a non-profit effort to make layettes for stillborn babies. Slaugh started the effort in 1992 when she heard the heartbreaking stories of parents and grandparents of stillborns. McCourt, an avid crafter crochets, sews and presses hundreds of the gifts each year. There are dozens of volunteers that supply the needs of 187 hospitals in the United States, including all of them in Oregon.
Florence's "volunteer dynamo" Kaylee Graham will also be on the program to talk about preparations for the fourth annual Power of FlOreNcE. Coming up July 18th, it's a day where Graham hopes as many people as possible will get out and do something for someone else.
