County Commission candidates square off

The Curry County Board of Realtors got a preview of what people might see at the first of many county commissioner candidate forums this fall when County Commissioner David Itzen faced off with candidate Tom Huxley at a board meeting Thursday.

The two were asked five questions culled from the real estate board, ranging from their opinion of the possible state designation of the Chetco River as a “scenic” waterway to how county government can be fixed.


Sheriff puzzled by voters' rejection of jail levy

Sheriff John Bishop

Tuesday’s defeat of Measure 8-78 — which would have provide funds solely for the county jail — has Sheriff John Bishop befuddled.

He didn’t think it would be defeated by the margin it did — even wider than the last referendum that asked for a larger tax increase. He understands that people are on tight budgets, and that many citizens don’t trust the county commissioners and are mad that they voted themselves a raise in June.

But he doesn’t get why the people don’t understand the necessity of a jail.
