SCORE! Brooking man gets wish, going to Super Bowl

Desi Robinson has tried for 25 years to get tickets to the Super Bowl. He learned on Christmas that he was only one of a handful of fans with disabilities given the opportunity to purchase a pair of tickets and parking pass.

For any die-hard NFL football fan, attending a Super Bowl is the holy grail of bucket list items.

Thousands of fans try, and fail every year to garner tickets to the year’s most watched sporting event.

As was the case with Brookings resident Desi Robinson, who, for the past 25 years, submitted his name into the NFL’s annual Super Bowl ticket lottery — a drawing where a scant few tickets are made available to the general public. 

Like clockwork, Robinson submitted his postcard to the drawing every year — and was subsequently rejected, year after year.

“They send you a letter saying ‘yay’ or ‘nay,’ said Robinson. “I always got ‘nay.’

Until this year. 


Armored car driver robbed at Brookings Fred Meyer

Authorities arrested four people Friday afternoon after they allegedly robbed an armored car security guard at the Brookings Fred Meyer store and led police on a short, high-speed chase on Highway 101 near Gold Beach.

The suspects crashed their getaway truck near the intersection of Highway 101 and Hunter Creek Road. Two suspects were arrested at the scene, and the other two were found hiding in the nearby brush and apprehended with the help of a Brookings K-9 officer, according to Brookings Police Lt. Donny Dotson.

Arrested were James Goff, 20, of Gold Beach; Brittney Chisholm, 25, of Agness, Drake Wright, 19, of Gold Beach; and Anthony Bonnell, 29, of Agness.
