No second chance for Fely’s Cafe
September 16, 2014 09:36 pm

Fely Johnson has been serving breakfast lunch at her small cafe at the port’s Beachfront RV Park since 1993.

The popular Fely’s Cafe at the Port of Brookings Harbor’s Sporthaven Beach will stay open until January, 2015, but after that it will have to close for good.

“There’s not much I can do about it. I’m not the one that’s in control of it,” cafe owner Fely Johnson said Tuesday morning.

The reason is twofold: The port is planning to renovate the building that holds the cafe; and the cafe is in noncompliance with certain federal regulations by which the port must abide.

“There really is no easy way to handle this,” Port Commissioner Jim Relaford said Tuesday. “We’re doing whatever we can to make it as easy as possible for Fely, but it has to happen.” 

Voters reject county jail levy

Ballot Measure 8-78 lost Tuesday night on two fronts: it didn’t get the minimum 50 percent turnout as required for a special election, nor did it get the majority of votes to win.

The measure lost 3,548 to 2,634, with 47.8 percent of eligible voters casting ballots.

The measure asked voters to approve a property tax hike of 68 cents per $1,000 assessed valuation to fund the jail — and only the jail.
