Sea claims life, two survive

Photo submitted Jim and Medette Hayman A woman walking on the beach near Paradise Point in Port Orford helps one of the passengers struggling in the surf after a recreational fishing boat capsized just offshore Sunday afternoon.

Jim and Medette Hayman were searching for agates on the beach near Paradise Point Sunday afternoon when they noticed a small boat caught between the big swells of the ocean and the crashing surf.

And then it went over, dumping its three passengers into the water.

“The ocean flipped it over just like it was a toy,” Medette said of the swells.


Council: Crosswalk good, but not ideal

The Brookings City Council Monday night somewhat reluctantly agreed to support the state’s transportation agency recommendation to paint crosswalk stripes and build an island in the center of Chetco Avenue near Lucky Lane.

The crosswalk is needed, public officials and the community agree, after a man struck and killed a woman who was crossing at Chetco Place and Highway 101 last summer. But councilors aren’t sold on the island proposed to be built that would provide pedestrians an interim place to stop.
