Storm damages Port Orford dock

Debris from the Port Orford docks collects on the beach
 A storm packing winds of more than 90 mph Saturday morning damaged the Port Orford dock, doused lights in Crescent City and left debris all along the Wild Rivers Coast.

Wind gusts above 90 mph were reported at Cape Blanco between 6 and 7 a.m. Saturday.

In nearby Port Orford winds and waves damaged the dock and washed away the Hallmark Fisheries building and equipment from the end of the pier. The Port Orford Beacon shared photos and information about the damage with the Curry Coastal Pilot.


Relaford: Annex port to city of Brookings

 Tuesday’s Port of Brookings-Harbor meeting took an unexpected turn when Port Commissioner Jim Relaford stunned the audience and his fellow board members with a proposal: to annex approximately 50 acres of port property to the city of Brookings.

“I’ve spent a lot of the last year thinking about the growth of the port, and we’ve just unanimously adopted a strategic plan.” Relaford said. “It’s my opinion that we can’t do that without discussing annexation of the port to the city of Brookings.”

Everyone in the room sat up. Audience members — about seven of them — looked on in surprise, some bristling visibly. In the past 20 years, the discussion of annexation has been a source of dispute between some residents of Brookings and unincorporated Curry County, especially Harbor.

Relaford continued that he wanted the commission to vote on the annexation at next month’s meeting.
