GOLD BEACH – Curry General Hospital’s opening last October of a special holding room to hold people with mental issues for up to five days while their condition is stabilized, or it’s decided they need to be transferred to another facility, has earned the hospital the 2010 Oregon Psychiatric Association Access Award.

The award was presented to the hospital on Thursday by the association’s Dr. Tom Dodson of Portland, who came up with the idea for the award about three years ago.

“This award is to honor and acknowledge people who are doing good things in community access to mental health,” Dodson said before presenting the award.

“It’s a hobby that pays off,” Babette Rose said about the beekeeping activities she and her husband, Russ, began five years ago. “We started in 2004 with six hives at our home on Ocean View Drive in Smith River, and today we have eight hives at the house, 10 hives at the blueberry farm and seven a little farther up the north bank.”

The blueberry farm she referred to is the Winter Flowers Farm owned by their friends, Cheryl and Duane McKinney, approximately seven miles up the North Bank of the Chetco River, and the other property is a mile or so farther up.

When Babette added, “There are 20,000 to 40,000 bees to a hive,” the multiplication table began to ring up some serious numbers that indicate a lot of honey gathering activity this time of the year.

Love Me 2 Times, the new upscale resale shop on Chetco Avenue, is a group effort, according to grandma Rosie Gottlieb, mama Mindie Craig, and little Brodie, who doesn’t sell much, but certainly entertains the clients.

The family is pretty well known by those who frequented the Salty Dog in its early days. “Lots of people knew my dad,” Mindie said about her father, Craig Gottlieb, the original owner of The Salty Dog espresso shop at the Port of Brookings Harbor.

When Brodie was born in January, grandma Rosie said she headed south from her San Francisco home to meet her new grandson, and, after meeting him, she hasn’t been able to leave.

Love for fishing results in Ultimate Catch

Captain Scott Stewart has loved fishing and the outdoors since he can remember and has now taken his love and turned it into his profession.

Stewart, along with his first mate Frank Castro and secretary Angela Stewart, has created a new charter fishing company out of the Port of Brookings Harbor and aptly named it Ultimate Catch Charter.

Trying to offer an experience unlike any current charter operation in business, Stewart uses light gear rather than the more typical medium- or heavy-weight gear.

“We really feel it gives the people a good experience,” Stewart explained. “We really want them to enjoy the experience of getting the fish rather than just catching them.”
