Get ready to bundle up, scrape windshields and protect plants!

The National Weather Service has issued a special statement warning of very cold temperatures on the Curry County coast this week.  That means overnight temperatures below freezing for several days – and maybe even some snow – all the way down to the beach.

Overnight temperatures are expected to be in the mid-20s starting overnight Monday, and continuing through Thursday morning.

"Travelers should be prepared for light snow early Tuesday, especially if heading inland," says the statement. Temperatures are expected to be very cold starting Tuesday night through the rest of the week.

The commercial season for Dungeness crab in Oregon has been delayed until at least Dec. 16 after sample testing of crab showed low meat content. However, some commercial fishermen can head just over the border into California, where the season is set to begin Sunday.

That is, if fishermen and crab buyers in California can agree to a price on crab.

 Meanwhile, for individuals wishing to fish for crab recreationally, the sport fishing season in Oregon begins on Sunday.

Watch your toes.

That’s what Hana Dykes learned on her first Black Friday experience while shopping at Fred Meyer early Friday morning. Dykes had traveled from Crescent City for the deals and waited with two friends in line with a shopping cart full of gifts. 

“We waited for an hour outside the store,” said Maxwell Aguilar, a friend of Dykes. “We’re here for the great deals. Look at the two 32-inch TVs!”

When Pennies for Pooches director Catherine Powers died suddenly a little more than a month ago, the community was stunned, but the loss was felt most keenly at the animal shelter in Gold Beach.

“We felt so helpless, but we (the board) decided we had to move forward and honor Catherine’s memory,” said Eric Bryant, the shelter’s board president. 

Wyden unveils timber plan
November 26, 2013 09:58 pm

Criticism and commendations hit the Internet minutes after U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden (D) announced his long-awaited Oregon and California Land Grant Act of 2013, designed to reopen some Oregon forests to logging, protect critical environment and jump-start the economy in depressed O&C counties.

The legislation would double timber harvests from the average cut over the last 10 years — 150 million board feet — to 300 to 350 mbf for “decades to come,” he said. It would also permanently protect old-growth trees — thus reducing the possibility of legal challenges.
