"I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors." - Thomas Jefferson (appears in the Jefferson Memorial)

New Year’s on the beach

New Year’s was temperate, sunny and not even very windy on the Oregon coast – perfect incentive to draw people from inland out to the water.

Here, people are enjoying a campfire at Pacific City on the night of New Year’s, as the holiday season comes toward an end. (photo/Randy Stapilus)
