    Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial Park Ranger Bob Zimmerman of Lincoln City took a break from shearing Bernie, a Leicester longwool sheep, at the living historical farm Saturday in Lincoln City. Zimmerman and others spent the morning shearing one of the farm’s five adult sheep and cleaning his wool to be spun into yarn. The farm plans to shear the remaining four sheep over the next few weekends if the weather permits. Tegan Johnston/The Herald
