IEDs found in Gold Beach
December 11, 2013 04:40 pm

Eighteen-year-old Erik Harris of Gold Beach was found to be carrying three improvised explosive devices after sheriff’s deputies pulled him over Wednesday afternoon for driving an unlicensed, non-street-legal motorcycle.

According to Sheriff Lt. John Ward, the youth was stopped near Motel 6 on Jerry’s Flat Road and taken into custody at the request of his probation officer for an unrelated probation violation. Officers searched his Harris’ backpack and found three small homemade pipe bombs inside. The Oregon State Police were contacted and a bomb technician from Medford seized the items.

Harris was lodged in the Curry County Jail for a probation violation and three counts of possession of a destructive device.

The Curry County Sheriff’s Office and the Oregon State Police will continue the investigation.

Harris was arraigned on felony possession of a methamphetamine and second-degree criminal trespassing charges in October.

The Red Flat Nickel Corp. is proposing to drill 35 experimental cores along a ridge above Hunter Creek and along the headwaters of Pistol River next summer, and residents in the area are unsure what to think about what they feel is the latest environmental assault on their land.

“I really care about Hunter Creek; it’s very personal to me,” said Dave Lacey, who held a community meeting Monday to bring awareness of the nickel company’s proposal to people in his neighborhood. “A lot of things make the area special. I don’t want to see it strip-mined.”

The U.S. Forest Service is soliciting comment about the proposal. Comments are due by 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13.

Twenty residents showed up at the OSU Extension Office to hear about the ramifications of hard-rock mining in other states.

Common Core is asking kids to think deeper
December 06, 2013 09:42 pm

Kalmiopsis kindergartners in Terry Brueckner’s class learn which numbers are larger than others during math time.

Two times two will always be four. But how Kalmiopsis Elementary School students arrive at this answer might be different from the way parents learned.

With Brookings-Harbor School District, along with the rest of Oregon, adopting new Common Core standards, teachers at Kalmiopsis are implementing new methods to teach students the math skills that will be necessary to meet the new national standards.

While the skills taught at different grade levels vary, with kindergartners learning how to count, third graders learning to multiply and fifth graders slogging through long division, how the concepts are being presented to students is similar — and different — than in years past.
