Sugar-coating bees

Pulverized organic sugar is sprinkled on the bees, which causes the bees to groom each other and dislodge mites.

One of the largest batches of mites ever seen in the area showed up recently and will be discussed at the next meeting of the Oregon South Coast Beekeepers Association.

The meeting will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 15, in the OSU building at the Event Center on the Beach, 29392 Ellensburg Ave., Gold Beach. 

Varroa mites are one of the worst threats to honeybee colonies, a vector for spreading disease and causing mass destruction, according to bee experts.

Honoring heros

Deputy Terry Brown receives Gold Lifesaving Medal from Admiral Richard Gromlich during an awards ceremony at U.S. Coast Guard Station Chetco River.

The U.S. Coast Guard honored five men for their heroic efforts in two separate rescue efforts — a group that included officers from several law enforcement organizations and one civilian on Monday.

Sheriff’s Deputy Terry Brown, who now lives in Salem, was presented the Gold Lifesaving Medal. On June 2, 2014, Brown swam out to rescue Brookings resident Joshua Peterson after the 14 year-old was swept up in the current while skimboarding with a friend at Harris Beach. Both Brown and Peterson were overwhelmed by the waves, and Brown tried to keep Peterson afloat while other responders tried to reach them.

After being rescued, Brown and Peterson were transported to Sutter Coast Hospital in Crescent City, where they both made a full recovery.
