Two apply for county sheriff job
August 19, 2014 09:15 pm

Curry County commissioners posed a total of 10 pre-written, generic questions to sheriff’s candidates as part of the hiring process to find a replacement for John Bishop who is leaving in late September.

Only two candidates — Curry County Lt. John Ward and Deputy Joel Hensley — submitted letters of interest for the position. Short interviews were held Monday afternoon; commissioners will select a new sheriff Tuesday, Aug. 26, at a 10 a.m. meeting.

Bishop is taking over as executive director with the Oregon State Sheriff’s Association, a nonprofit organization that lobbies the legislature on behalf of sheriffs’ issues, in Salem. His last day is Sept. 30.

Plane crashes after leaving Brookings
August 19, 2014 09:07 am

A California man piloting a single-engine plane that left Brookings Monday died when the plane crashed that night in Marin County, north of San Francisco, officials said.

The pilot, a Redwood City resident, was flying to San Carlos when he reported engine trouble at 9:30 p.m., according to the FAA. The man has not been identified pending notification of next of kin.


The pilot used his radio to report that he would try to make it to Gnoss Field in Novato. Radio contact was lost shortly after that.
