Solemn observance

A Brookings World War II veteran drops flowers on a symbolic grave during a Memorial Day ceremony Monday at the Port of Brookings Harbor.

The annual Memorial Day Ceremony at the Port of Brookings Harbor Monday drew a  crowd of more than 100 people who gathered to hear speeches and comments honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. armed services. They also honored those still serving the country today. 

Dozens of people — retired and active soldiers, mothers, fathers, daughters, sons and grandchildren — took turns placing flowers on the symbolic grave of the fallen soldier. Some took a moment to announce who they were honoring and why.

Look for a full story in Wednesday’s Curry Coastal Pilot.

Record low Chetco River level may threaten habitats

The Chetco River Tuesday afternoon continued it slow, steady fall, to 161 cubic feet per second, almost half of the lowest recorded level in 45 years of reporting.

The mean for May 19 is 1,300 cfs. 

Rain forecast for last week didn’t transpire, and overcast skies this week have yet to let loose any moisture, either. Brookings has seen no rainfall in May, compared to a 3.6-inch average over the past four and a half decades.

And low water levels mean warmer water — which might be nice for people playing in the river, but can spell death for fish.
