Board rejects annexation idea

The Port of Brookings Harbor Board of Commissioners on Tuesday voted 3-2 to reject a motion to apply for annexation to the city of Brookings.

The decision came after the board took questions and heard concerns from a packed — and often emotionally charged — audience of more than 80 people.

Port Commissioner Jim Relaford, who first proposed the idea of annexation at the board’s October’s meeting, voted in favor of the application, along with Commissioner Tim Patterson. However, commissioners Sue Gold, Roy Davis and Mike Manning all voted against it.


For the birds

A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter delivers a tote to Goat Island Monday to collect research gear.

 Wildlife officials conducting a summertime bird study off the coast of Brookings wrapped up their project with the help of the U.S. Coast Guard and one its helicopters.

The activity Monday afternoon at Goat Island, located just off Harris Beach State Park, caught the attention of keen observers who spotted the orange H-65 Dolphin helicopter hovering above its rocky surface.

Starting around 11 a.m., the helicopter transported four Coast Guardsmen and a U.S. Fish and Wildlife biologist from the Brookings airport to the island. Once there, they packed up several deep-cycle batteries that had powered research gear.
