Response to Roseburg rampage

Brookings authorities tightened security around school campuses Thursday and Friday as a precaution in the wake of the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg.

Also, on Friday morning, a possible online threat against schools in Coos County prompted Southwestern Oregon Community College officials to close campuses in Coos and Curry County.

Brookings Police Chief Chris Wallace sent officers to the Curry County campus, north of Brookings, to walk the facility and talk with staff.

“We just wanted them to know that we are there,” Wallace said.


Oregon Coast thefts on the rise

There is a glaring rectangular hole on the monument at House Rock in Samuel Boardman State Park, north of Brookings. The brass plaque honoring Samuel H. Boardman was stolen from the monument some time last month. 

“Sign and trail markers get stolen occasionally. We typically see more vandalism and graffiti than theft,” said Anna Krug, park manager for Oregon State Parks Harris Beach Management Unit. 

The theft, while an unusual one, is indicative of a growing theft problem along the entire coast from the California border to Gold Beach.
