Brookings' Elmo Williams dies at age 102

Elmo Williams

Long-time Brookings resident and retired Hollywood film producer Elmo Williams died peacefully in his home at 4:30 a.m. today (Nov. 25) at the age of 102.

Williams, who had been in a semi-lucid state since Friday after taking medication for heart trouble, spent his final days surrounded by family and friends. They celebrated Thanksgiving on Tuesday, setting a plate for Elmo at the dinner table near his bed and serving his favorite food and toasting him with his favorite German wine. 

“It was a very peaceful passing,” said Elmo’s adult daughter Stacy Williams.

A memorial for Elmo is scheduled for Dec. 12 at the Brookings Elks Lodge. The time of the event is high noon, after the movie High Noon, in which Elmo received an Academy Award as film editor. The family will hold a private service before then.

Crab season delayed due to toxin

The earliest commercial fishermen can harvest crab will be mid-December.

The traditional Dec. 1 commercial crab season has been delayed for the entire Oregon Coast due to above average levels of domoic acid, a toxin that can be fatal, found in Dungeness crab off certain parts of the coast, a state agency announced.

The earliest that commercial fisherman can harvest crab is mid-December — but only if future test results say the crab is safe for human consumption.
