Reedsport needs to recruit a new chief BY STE VE LINDSLEY The Umpqua Post
The Associated Press
Oregon State Police with the bomb squad from Medford remove a device along U.S. Highway 101 in Reedsport on Saturday.
Explosive closes U.S. Highway 101 BY STE VE LINDSLEY The Umpqua Post
REEDSPORT — Reedsport police shut down part of U.S. Highway 101 on Saturday morning after a bicyclist discovered a potentially dangerous object in Reedsport. The highway reopened around 2:30 p.m. The highway was closed from Winchester Avenue to state Highway 38 after the discovery of a small, black object on a sidewalk. In addition to shutting down the highway, police also kept pedestrians and bicyclists from using the sidewalks through the area. Police called the Oregon State Police bomb squad from Medford to assist in the investigation. Police used a robot to pick up the device and put it in a heavy box. It was then transported by a technician to the waiting OSP van,
parked nearby. The “device” was described as approximately five to six inches long and an inch in diameter. It was wrapped in tape with a fuse sticking out of one end. It was confirmed to be a “pipe bomb.” The road and sidewalks were closed to “prevent any accidental detonation or collateral damage in case of detonation,” according to a news release from the Reedsport Police Department. Officials reopened the roadway after the object was removed. Specifics on what the object was were not available. Along with Reedsport police and the OSP bomb squad, Reedsport Fire Department, Winchester Bay Fire Department, Douglas County CERT and the Douglas County Sheriff’s office also responded and helped close streets.

A bicyclist spotted this “device” on the sidewalk along U.S. Highway 101 in Reedsport, Saturday. The Oregon State Police Hazardous Device technicians were called in.
Even though it will only be a month since the death of Reedsport Police Chief Mark Fandrey, the city may decide to begin recruiting for a new chief as early as August. “Right now we’re putting together a posting for the opening,” city manager Jonathan Wright said. “If the council sees fit to allow staff to (recruit) after the Aug. 5 city council meeting then, the next day, we will post it. It will post for 60 days.” Wright said, since the department also lost an officer before the death of Fandrey in July, the city feels the need to seek a new chief. “The recruitment is still open,” he said. “We, so far, have two applicants.” That officer was going to be used for a new School Resource Officer position this fall at Reedsport schools. That has been put on hold. A new chief probably won’t come soon. “We’re looking about six months,” Wright said of the process. “By the time you open up the recruitment, then go through the interviews, then have to do the background investigation, that takes time.” He said he expects the city will also do on-site visits with a candidate’s current agency, family, friends and people who have worked with them. “Make sure that they’re going to be a good fit for the community,” he said. Wright says they’ll use a variety of agencies to recruit for a new chief.

Charging stations in Reedsport, Elkton will extend West Coast Electric Highway BY STEVE LINDSLEY The Umpqua Post
Reedsport and Elkton should become part of the West Coast Electric Highway in the next year, as the Oregon Department of Transportation continues to place electric vehicle charging stations around the state. The two cities are part of the second phase of a project to place charging stations. Other cities slated to be added include Coos Bay Aurora, Madras, Redmond, The Dalles and an Interstate 5 exit near Salem. Ashley Horvat, Oregon chief electric vehicle officer, said the Reedsport and Elkton stations will join existing stations in Astoria, Cannon Beach, Florence, Lincoln City, Newport, Tillamook and Yachats along the coast. “We applied for a grant to
extend the West Coast Electric Highway past the I5 corridor to be able to extend the range of electric vehicles, which are about 100 miles,” she said. “It further bolsters the idea of actually switching from a gas-powered vehicle that can take you to the coast to an electric car, because now you can make it to the coast, the gorge; whether you live in Portland or Eugene.” Horvat, who did the interview while on the road in her electric Nissan Leaf, said the new stations should be in place in the next year. “We have until July of 2014,” she said. “We have up until summer of next year. We’re already well underway. We have 10 more stations left to go. Coos Bay could start in the next couple of months.” The site for a placement of the station is still under-
way in Reedsport. Horvat said they’ve considered sites in the parking lot near Dairy Queen and Price ‘N Pride, a site near the Umpqua Discovery Center and a site near the Reedsport Bedrock’s. She says two sites are under strong consideration — a site in the parking lot of the Reedsport boat ramp on the Umpqua River waterfront and a triangle of land the city owns next to Aztlan Mexican Restaurant on U.S.
Highway 101. She said a big consideration is the availability of power. “We work with the utilities to find where the threephase power is, if there’s a transformer there and, if so, where is it within the property?” she said. “How far will it be to extend the power with conduit? That definitely increases cost.” Other considerations include whether there is nearby access to restrooms
and what other services are available. Horvat said the Elkton site should be at Brandborg Winery. She said once lease deals for charging stations are signed, it’s not too long before a station is placed. “Really, once we start construction it takes about, on average, 17 business days,” she said. “It’s not a long process for construction. It’s more just, kind of, preparing the site, doing
some assessments on possible haz-mat contamination.” She said they won’t place the stations on former hazardous materials sites. The stations have a sixfigure cost. “The equipment itself, including power, contractors, is about $100,000 per site,” Horvat said. “Sometimes it’s lower, sometimes it’s higher but, on average, it’s about $100,000.”

Planning board reaffirms OK for Reedsport landscaper The Reedsport Planning Commission voted to allow a landscaping business to continue to operate in a residential area, despite complaints from some neighbors on the numbers of vehicles used by the business and on-street parking. The commission voted at its July 22 meeting to allow Leo’s Landscape Maintenance, owned by Leonel Martinez, to continue operating out of a home on Arthur Drive. The initial home occupation was approved in December 2010. There were questions recently raised that Martinez may not be in compliance with the standards set at that initial approval. One next-door neighbor, Barbara Ledl, came to the commission to say the parking of trucks and trailers on the street sometimes caused problems for her getting out of her driveway. “I have an issue with safety,” she told the commis-
sion. “He has four trailers, two trucks and a personal car ... and they are all parked in front of his house. The trailer is, even this evening, so close to my driveway that, when I drive out of my garage, I can’t see. “Children go to school. People walk there and, if you drive out, it’s really bad.” She also complained about noise from the business, especially during the cleaning of equipment on Sunday and hooking up, and dropping trailers during the week. “This is not good in a residential area,” She said. “It’s a lot of noise.” Martinez said he didn’t see the issue. “As far as parking spots,” he testified, “I don’t think there’s as issue as far as I’m concerned and all the neighbors I’ve talked to.” He admitted he has several trucks and trailers — at least two trailers for his business. One of those he parks in his garage. An enclosed trail-
er is parked on the street. Some employees also park near the home. The commission negotiated with Martinez to try to mitigate some of the parking problems, including finding other locations to park at least one of Martinez’ trailers. He agreed to find some other places to park trailers, equipment and employees. Martinez, in rebuttal, said he had attempted to solve some of the parking issues with Ledl. “We tried to make her happy,” he said. “She told one of my employees to not park on her side. He told me, so I thought, ‘Well, you know, don’t park near her place.’” He admitted to other conflicts with Ledl. “We have always been having conflicts,” he said. “Before I had my business ... she had a conflict with me, my dad and we had a conflict about my dogs. She always tried to find something.” Martinez said he will

daughter Jolyn Brown and granddaughter Grace of Salem; Kathy Sargent, her son Greg Sargent and daughter Courtney Sargent of Salem; son Steve Sargent missed the celebration as he and his wife Jyl were on their honeymoon. Distant cousins of Dorothy’s came from Lincoln City and Coos Bay to attend. Family from as far
away as Yakima, Wash., and North Platt, Neb., surprised Bob and Dorothy with their presence. Robert and Dorothy met at a beach party in Garibaldi in 1946. During his career, Bob was a principal at a school in Emmett, Idaho. He was the minister of the Christian church in Vernonia, St. Helens, and Mist where they lived for more than 15 years. Robert was the minister of education at the Christian church in Bell, Calif., and was an academic dean at San Jose Bible College for 13 years. Bob also taught in a private Christian school in Forest Lake, Calif., for five and a half years. Dorothy stayed at home and raised the family until they were grown. She then worked for nine years as a cook in the cafeteria at San Jose Bible College. Bob and Dorothy retired and relocated to Lakeside in 2003.
Elks puts its money where the mouths are BY TIM NOVOTNY The World
COOS BAY — The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks in Coos Bay is doing what it can to feed hungry youth in our area, but needs community assistance. The Elks is the largest fraternal organization in the country, and they're involved locally in a number of causes. The effort with the furthest reach assists Oregon Coast Community Action’s Share Bear Snack Pack Program. Don Baronian, exalted ruler of Coos Bay Elks Lodge No. 1160, said the group recently received some good news to help with Snack Pack — the Elks were awarded a $10,000 grant from the Grand Lodge in Chicago. “We apply for it every year and we’ve gotten it the last five years in a row, which is pretty commendable,” Baronian said. The $50,000 in grant funding to aid the cause is a huge help, but childhood hunger on the South Coast is an even bigger problem. So, the Elks continue to have a variety of fundraisers for ORCCA. One of those fundraisers is a community garage sale 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the local lodge, 265 Central Ave., Coos Bay. Sharon Kolkhorst has been heading up the Snack Pack effort for the Elks since the initial involvement in 2009. She says it’s a good match for the Elks. “It’s for youth, what we consider at risk youth, and it is also a community project.” In addition to the funding of supplies for one of the schools, currently Madison

An old record player is one of many items at the Elks Lodge garage sale helping the organization raise money for their the snack pack program. Elementary, the Elks also gather twice a month during the school year to assemble
all of the snack packs for distribution. An effort that covers the coast, from Reedsport to Brookings. Fortunately, Kolkhorst says the Elks do get a helping hand from church groups and students at Marshfield High School who are involved with their Mr. MHS program. “Mr. MHS did it for a whole month last year and it gave our volunteers a break.” If you would like to find out how you can help, contact the Coos Bay Elks at 541-266-7320 or Don Baronian at 541-297-8238.

continue to work to keep peace in the neighborhood.. “I’m not here to fight,” he told the commission. “I’m here to solve issues to keep the neighbors happy.” One neighbor, Nancy Chartier, could not attend the hearing but stated in a letter she did not support the continuation of the home occupancy due to the traffic impact and limited parking on Arthur Drive as a result of the home occupation. Another neighbor, Deborah Howard, wrote to the commission saying she has used Leo’s for landscaping services and did not view parking as an issue since many residents also park their vehicles and trailers on the street. The commission voted 40 to allow Leo’s to continue to operate out of the home. One member, Christian Walter, did not vote. In other action Deborah Yates was welcomed to the commission as a new member.

Katharine Luther Noling, known as Kathy Smith in the 1970s, died of heart disease on July 18, 2013, surrounded by her daughters, Diane, Carin and Rhonda Smith, and her cat, Heyu, in Wenatchee, Wash. Kathy was born in Kathy Illinois on Noling Aug. 2, 1934, was adopted by Jean and Alfred Noling a few days after her birth, and was raised in Indianapolis, Ind., with her older brother, Larry. Kathy attended Cornell University, and graduated from the University of California at Los Angeles. She married William Gordon Smith, whom she met at UCLA, in 1956.

jigsaw puzzles, pontificate, smoke and drink. After moving to Reedsport, she became a self-described hermit. She had a wickedbad sense of humor, and did not suffer fools gladly. She cheerfully answered the phone, year round, with “Bah, Humbug!” and her doormat said, “Go away!” Kathy was politically and socially progressive, and had a kind heart. She was quietly generous with her support of individuals in need, and groups that helped the underprivileged. She was an avid reader and book collector, and gave away boxes of books, which she specially selected for each person’s interests. She always had a dog and a cat in her home, seeking out older, unwanted animals from the shelter. Kathy is survived by her daughters, Diane Smith of Anchorage, Alaska (husband, Joe Chaszar), Carin Smith of Peshastin, Wash. (partner, Andy Kahn), and Rhonda Smith of Cohasset, Calif. (husband, Michael DuFloth); granddaughters, Yana and Charlotte Smith of Anchorage; step-grandson, Joe DuFloth of Cohasset; BFFs, Barbara Cheatham of Issaquah, Wash., Georgia Lumpkin of Los Angeles, Calif., and Cindy Kay of Broadbent, Ore.; and brother, Larry Noling, who lives in Leland, Mich., where he and Kathy spent the summers of their youth. Out of respect for Kathy’s wishes, no public service will be held. A clandestine ceremony will be held sometime in the future by her immediate family.

Are you kidding me? Two weeks ago I wrote a story about a pending sale of the Reedsport AM radio station after the death of one of the owners. As is standard in such a business story, I included the proposed purchase price. I was not the first to publish the story, as it had appeared on a couple of industry websites. The death of Kent Abendroth was a blow to the community. He had made KDUN a community resource and he, and his wife Sandy, were very involved in area activities and organizations. I had never met Kent, but I had corresponded with him via email before and after he bought the station. Of course, after his death last spring, his widow has kept the station going but, as the story mentioned, had put the station up for sale. After my story ran, I received a voice mail message from Sandy. She was very upset that the story mentioned the purchase
COASTING HOME Steve Lindsley, price saying, in a nutshell, that people had commented to her that they would not have participated in fundraisers for the station if they had known she would receive that much money. Really? Would people be so self absorbed and shallow to comment to a widow that they’re sorry they gave their $20, or whatever? Personally, I donated money at the spaghetti fundraiser at the Eagle’s Lodge, because I know the importance of local radio. As I’ve said before, I have been involved in the radio industry for 35 years. I have seen good local radio stations fall to giant corporations, only to be decimated because of budget cuts. I value local
owners. Keeping a station going is not an easy task. The economy and lack of local sales has made it more difficult. You self-absorbed people should know that the proposed purchase price is not very much for a local radio station and, as Sandy mentioned in her call to me, she won’t receive all of whatever the purchase prices ends up being. She has legal fees and other expenses to take care of. I do not regret my donation to the station. I also felt it was important to run the story. I also received a call, which I was able to take, from a friend of Sandy’s who said it was unprofessional of me to write the story while she was still
grieving. I am sensitive to that but, as I mentioned, I was not the first to write the story and felt it was important for the community to know the station will probably continue, albeit under a new owner who has said he likes to keep his stations local. I hope the sale goes through ... it’s up to the Federal Communications Commission to decide on when the transfer will take place. I’ve said many things about the generosity of this community, the many volunteers who work on events and the genuinely kind people who live here. But, really? Are you kidding me? Some of the selfabsorbed need to ask some better questions before they express their opinions to someone who has lost a spouse and has to sell the family business. How about this: If you have something to say about it, you say it to me.
Jordan Cove meeting delayed BY EMILY THORNTON The Umpqua Post
COOS BAY — Those wishing to voice concerns about the Jordan Cove Energy Project now have more time. Landowners and businesses have until 3:30 p.m. Aug. 20 to file appeals to the Coos County Planning Commission. Submissions should be specific to the county’s ordinances in order to be considered. Jody McCaffree, director of Citizens Against LNG, said whether Jordan Cove’s application was approved depended on citizens voicing their opinions now. “I hope that people will
Company requests more time for to alter plans look and address these issues at the local level,” McCaffree said. “Now’s the time to raise the issues.” Jill Rolfe, Planning Director at the Coos County Planning Department, said the hearing was moved at the applicant’s request. “They just asked for a continuance,” Rolfe said. “They don’t need a reason. Applicants can request one any time.” Bob Braddock, with Jordan Cove Energy Project, said they needed more time

to re-do some plans that previously were approved. “The information wasn’t done in time,” Braddock said. “We wanted to make sure it was in total conformance with what was required.” Braddock said they, “changed some roads and caught it late in the game.” He also said they’d planned for the end of July originally.
McCaffree said all filed appeals should be point out a specific county ordinances. Whether the land could be used for an industrial zone was debatable, McCaffree said. “It’s a key permit,” McCaffree said. “They have to have the land use first.” Jordan Cove must obtain several permits to build its plant, including air and water, McCaffree said. Braddock said he wanted to be “ready to present in front of the vetting officer.”
New Chief FROM PAGE 1 “We do postings with law enforcement associations in Washington, Oregon, California, as well as the LEDS (Law Enforcement Data Systems) information system,” he said. Wright said it may seem soon after the chief’s July 6 death of a heart attack, but they’re trying to be sensitive to the family and department. “The interim chief (Sgt. Tom Beck) has had a discussion with the chief’s widow,” he said, “and she indicated she understood that we needed to continue to operate and start looking to the future.” Wright said, although not critical, they’d like to get a new chief and officer as soon as possible. “We do have a lack of manpower,” he said. “The chief, though, is kind of the central hub of the organization. They’re the ones that
have to put together the policies, enforce the policies, oversee the day-to-day operations. Without that individual, we’re really not going anywhere. We’re not moving backwards but we’re not moving forward.” Wright, for his part, would rather hire for the chief’s position first. “I would, personally, rather see a chief before we hire another officer,” he explained. “I would like that chief to have the ability to pick somebody that he, or she, is interested in and then put together the SRO program, take ownership of it and get that program started. I don’t think any of things can happen until after we have a chief.” Although, those decision will come from the city council which, again, meets on Aug. 5. Wright indicated interim chief Sgt. Beck could apply for the job, but has not indicated he would do so.

COMMUNITY ROUNDUP WHAT’S UP! Welcome to planet Dunefest By the time you read this, our dunes will be utterly transformed into another dimension. A place where a billion bucks worth of rolling stock crawls onto the sand in every shape and size, as long as it has wheels. I can’t help wondering where all those youngish people get the money for gigantic busses, the kind usually reserved for rock-n-roll has-beens. It takes a lot of self-control for me to resist interviewing the drivers. I really want to know where they work, how they make so much and is there a special store that sells a big bus, a trailer full of ATVs, a beautiful girl in a halter top and a puppy as a package? The whole DuneFest planet is fueled by adrenaline, testosterone and racing fuel all burning HOT. It’s dusty and loud, sort of dangerous and a challenge to gravity — in other words, it’s the very definition of
fun for a huge percentage of the population! And it IS fun. Not just for “that type” but everyone who goes is touched by the fever to one degree or another. Really. Come out and have a look around and I doubledog-dare WHAT’S UP? you to resist. Although off-road machines are what it’s all about, you don’t need a vehiNancie H a m m o n d cle to attend. Buy a wristband at the front gate and stroll on in. Vendor Row is paved and for walking only, so you can see all the new products, buy a T-shirt and have some fabulous snacks. Walk on and you’ll be at the main stage area for a dune ride on one of those gigantic monster trucks, watch the drag races and a variety of competitions for kids and adults.
Don’t forget about the big Charity Auction on Friday evening. We’re selling the new Polaris 2014 RZR, which Polaris swore would be the first one available for sale anywhere, according to the Chamber’s Sponsor Coordinator Jesse Meyer. And there will be hundreds of other items up for grabs at great prices. Best of all, the money goes to local programs like Great Afternoons, the Food Pantry and a big variety of organizations that help others in Reedsport and Winchester Bay. Donating prizes and bidding on them is how the DuneFesters say thanks to our community for the hospitality. Get out there and be part of the fun! Or at least take a look around and be amazed at what lifeforms on Planet DuneFest do on vacation.
First Friday The CDABA First Friday for artists is taking place Aug. 2 at the Mindpower Gallery. Drop by 5-7 p.m. to see the work of featured
artist Connie Sayler, who does amazing things with fiber. You may have noticed that felting is a trendy thing to both do and wear again. It looks like a fun and stress-relieving hobby because you get a piece of material and a giant mean looking needle and you just stab and stab and stab some more until the material becomes all fuzzy and lux. And there’s always something new and interesting to see at the gallery.
And the not so new ...but still interesting. At 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 3 is the nearly famous annual Community Yard Sale in Scottsburg. It’s your chance to get a look at what’s in the attics of some of those fabulous historic homes. Or to own a gently used sweater de-fuzzer or a salad spinner, or some other widget for just a smidge of silver. Start at Bob’s Market and pick up a map of the sale sites - sort of like those maps of the star’s homes for sale in Hollywood.
There’s also a community sale happening at the Butterfly Pavilion in Elkton from 9 till 3. While you’re in Elkton, slip over to Tomaselli’s and see what they’ve done with the place. They have a new cheese and wine store that is divine. They have some nice choices that are reasonably priced and the staff will tell you what to pair with what so you’ll look like a smart foodie when your friends stop by for a bit of fromage. Oh, and the cinnamon-pecan bread makes the best French toast you’ve ever had anywhere, so grab a loaf or two while you’re in line.
National Night Out This fun and free event is for the whole family, so bring all the kids to Lion’s Park 5-7 p.m. Aug. 6. The Reedsport Police Department is hosting the annual crime prevention picnic, with officers manning the barbecue and playing games just like normal people. That’s the idea.
Meet your neighbors and meet the people who keep your neighborhood safe, all in an informal, fun setting. All of the food and drinks will be provided, but if you happen make a banner potato salad or a special dip, go ahead and bring it along to share. And the event is also a collection site for a canned food drive for the Food Pantry, so pack up a few cans in that picnic basket. The Lions Club, Rotary, and Lower Umpqua Hospital are all helping the Police Department with the party, so you can count on good food and great fun. Questions? Call Charlene at 541-271-2100
What’s Next? The summer isn’t over yet, and neither is event season! Get ready for a wine tour, a classic car show, Kool Coastal Nights, Art by the Bay, Crab Bounty Hunt, Salmon Derby, a barbecue cook off, a sidewalk art sale and more!
Community Calendar July 31 Wednesday Know Your Tree — 9 a.m., Elkton Community Education Center, 15850 state Highway 38, Elkton. The even is sponsored by Oregon State University Extension Service and ECEC. Participants will walk the 1 ⁄4-mile park trail and learn to identify trees and native shrubs.

Club for disabled to join in Hollywood Dreams The nonprofit club is open to people with developmental disabilities and their companion Western Douglas County residents are invited to participate in activities scheduled by “Hollywood Dreams,” a Coos Bay-based social and education club for people with developmental disabilities. The nonprofit recently received two grants from the Cow Creek Indian Foundation. Mary Taylor is the executive director of Hollywood Dreams. “We do have people right now who come from Reedsport, Winchester Bay, from Bridge, from very far locations,” she said. “The reason why is people with developmental disabilities always feel welcome at our events. So, they’re willing to drive that extra bit to go to an event that can be assured will for them.” Those activities, usually scheduled two or three times a month, include visits to Wildlife Safari in Winston, tours of the North Bend fire station, tours of the Coast Guard helicopter facility, luaus, concerts, pontoon boat rides, bingo, kite flying in Lincoln City, touring the
tall ships, touring the Newport aquarium, holiday parties and crafts, picnics and annual birthday bash. The group recently held a pontoon boat ride on Tenmile Lake. Upcoming activities include free Zumba classes, a free night at Joey’s Arcade in Coos Bay in November and a dance party, with a live band, in December. The activities are open to people with developmental disabilities and their companion. Some of the events are free to attendees but, more usually, attendees pay $2 for an event, which typically includes a meal. One of the Cow Creek grants will allow for three free events for the group. One of the foundation grants is for $4,000 will assist with the costs of “Outreach to Individuals with Developmental Disabilities in the 15-30Year-Old Age Group.” The other grant will provide assessment, development and training for the board of directors of Hollywood Dreams. Taylor says she’s excited about it. “We’re really never had a chance to do some outreach and recruiting to younger people,” she said. “We asked for a grant to put on three free events to do outreach for people in the 15 to 30year age category. But, anybody of any age, is always welcome at any Hollywood Dreams event.”
Hollywood Dreams was formed 10 years ago and Taylor says the 501(c)(3) organization has grown from a small group of parents and professions into a “more extended organization that embraces many diverse individuals.” The group’s website is www.HollywoodDreams.org. The Cow Creek foundation was established in 1997. Each year the foundations offers grants to eligible nonprofits in Douglas, Coos, Lane, Deschutes, Klamath, Jackson and Josephine Counties. This year, it is distributing more than $400,000 to 58 non-profits in the seven counties. Since it’s beginning, the foundation has awarded $12,954,289. Taylor said the grants to Hollywood Dreams will help it “become a better organization.”
Class of ’78 reunion plans The Reedsport High School Class of 1978 invites classmates to join them on Aug. 9, at the Eagles Lodge in downtown Reedsport for a no host meet and greet beginning at 7 p.m. There will also be an open house at Orca Gallery, 532 Fir St., Reedsport, on Aug. 10 from noon to 3 p.m. The open house will be hosted by the Class of ’78 and Orca Gallery owner Bill Karcher. Wine, beverages and appetizers will be provided.

Thanks to all of the family, friends, neighbors, and even strangers who stopped for a moment in time to pay some kind of tribute to Doug’s life. The correspondence from so many people has offered our family so much peace and joy during a time of loss and sorrow. Your thoughtfulness will remain a part of our family history forever. — Sincerely, Kim Solomon and Family

Brothers stand out in judo program Reedsport plans THE UMPQUA POST Reedsport students Conor and Keilan Gore have had a good year competing for the Southwestern Oregon Community College Judo Club. Most recently, the siblings competed in the Oregon State Games near Grants Pass. Keilan Gore took a silver medal in the boys 11-12 heavyweight divison. Conor Gore won the bronze medal in the 9-10 middleweight division. Earlier, both brothers earned silver medals in a different tournament at Grants Pass. At the big Obukan tournament in Portland in April, Conor earned a bronze medal, while Kielan competid but finished outside the running for a medal. The brothers — 9-yearold Conor and 11-year-old Keilan — joined the judo program in 2009. “They continue to be very enthusiastic in their studies and in competing in regional and national events,” Rob Schab said. “They are setting their sights on the 2014 Junior Nationals in Honolulu.” Among their accomplishments, both boys earned the U.S. Judo Federation award for academic excellence in 2011. Schab said the boys get a lot of support from their parents, Denise and Randy, who has been in the adult Contributed Photo portion of the program since Reedsport siblings Keilan (left) and Conor Gore pose with some of their recent judo awards. 2009.
At least one new rule you should know In a move that most Oregonians seem aware of, the Oregon legislature, via an amendment to Oregon Revised Statute 164.785 (HB2697) made it legal for anglers to return fish carcasses and parts there of to the water from which the fish was harvested. The Revised Statute is now in effect and OSP troopers are aware of the change, however HB2697 will not be available in writing to the general public until the sportfishing regulations for 2014 are published. A local project certain to be of interest to local fishermen is the green sturgeon telemetry project which will be taking place north of the Umpqua River. The project is a joint effort of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and the National Marine Fisheries Service.

As for Winchester Bay, winds have greatly restricted the number of ocean salmon anglers and the number of keepable salmon caught has been almost entirely Chinook. Chinook fishing below Reedsport continues to improve, but remains very inconsistent.

They will be taught basic principals of both offense and defense and coach Shane Nelson said the camp
will be an upbeat, positive experience. Students will need to wear workout clothes that can get dirty, such as shorts and sweat pants.
Middle/High School The camps for the older students will focus on football fundamentals while including information specifically about the offenses and defenses that Reedsport uses. The middle school camp is for students in fifth through eighth grade. The high school camp is for grades 9-12. In addition to working on the offense and defense, the camp will serve as a start for conditioning, including a combination of agility and plyometrics drills. The camp will not include contact and will emphasize technique and fundamentals. The cost is $20 and includes a camp T-shirt. For more information on any of the camps, contact coach Shane Nelson by phone at 541-290-4026 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
