Brookings school board hires interim superintendent

A closer look: Curry County Jail

Jail Commander Mike Espinoza spends two hours answering citizens’ questions during tour of the jail.

It wasn’t the antiquated way of getting around the jail — big brass key and radio requests to dispatch — that stunned the half-dozen or so citizens touring the aging facility Tuesday.

It wasn’t the “soggy” pipes, deteriorating in the concrete in which they are encased.

Nor was it the lack of fire suppression, or the lack of emergency exits.

“I don’t think the facility is that bad — if they had the manpower,” said Nancy May, one of those in the tour. 

“John Q. Public just isn’t educated — this really opens my eyes. I would have voted differently, had I known,” May said.

Lurell Bailey is looking forward to her first night in her new home.

It has a bathroom. She can get water from a faucet, rather than a hose. The wind won’t scream through the glass on her perch overlooking Cape Blanco.

“I’m so thrilled!” she squealed last spring. “It’s like they built me a new castle! My home has always been where a serf would live. Now I’m going to where a queen would live! It’s a fantasy for me.”


Huxley, Itzen vie for commission seat

Curry County voters have two choices in a contentious race for the county commissioner Position 1 seat on Nov. 4.

Ballots are to be sent out between Oct. 17 and 22 and are due back to the elections office by 8 p.m. election day.
