SMART at Head Start

A SMART volunteer spends one-on-one time with a second-grade student. Submitted photo.

The first grade boy struggled to pronounce a word in the book he was reading — once, twice and finally a third time before the man stepped in to help.

“So close!” the volunteer said encouragingly.

The child beamed and starting reading another sentence from the book, stumbling over a few words, but not giving up. Finished with the book, the boy ran to the shelve to fetch another.

“Dinosaurs! Dinosaurs are my favorite!” the boy exclaimed.

“Mine, too!” the man said.

It’s a familiar scene wherever students and adult volunteers participate in the SMART (Start Making A Reader Today) program.


Police investigate theft of 20 handguns

The Gold Beach Police Department is investigating the theft of 20 handguns stolen early Wednesday from the Rogue Outdoor Store.

“We have a very limited suspect description,” said Police Chief Dixon Andrews. “We immediately put out a teletype within the region, letting people know the guns are out there.”

The theft was discovered when a citizen, driving to work around 7 a.m. Wednesday, passed the store and saw the door open. The citizen notified authorities, who contacted the store’s owner. 

The owner, Jim Carey, arrived immediately and confirmed the store had been robbed, Andrews said.
