Program delivers new home for Curry woman

Lurell Bailey and Commissioner Dave Itzen celebrate the arrival of her new home, courtesy of the ReHome Oregon project.

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.

The two running for the seat are incumbent Commissioner David Itzen and candidate Tom Huxley — and the two hold opposite stances on almost every issue the county faces.


Agent Orange meeting Sunday

Stephanie Holybee suffers the repercussions of her father’s stint in the Vietnam War, where he was repeatedly doused by lumbering airplanes spewing chemicals to kill foliage in the jungle.

The soldiers were told the planes were spraying for mosquitoes, that the stuff was harmless. But it was really the defoliant Agent Orange contaminated with dioxin. And the effects of that exposure wouldn’t be realized for years.

Stephanie’s father, Ken, of Forestville, California, has no symptoms from his exposure to the chemical.


Panhandling and related issues ease in Harbor

“Businesses have reported fewer issues relating to panhandling, such as littering, theft and customers being solicited for cash,” she wrote in a press release. “Residents have also reported less trash on the beaches.”


Great Oregon ShakeOut

Students take cover during an Great Oregon Shakeout several years ago. This year, children at Brookings’ Kalmiopsis Elementary School will conduct earthquake and fire drills.

Although it’s easy to dismiss it as a distant hypothetical, a massive earthquake is a genuine possibility for citizens of Curry County. Residents of the Oregon Coast consistently hear the phrase, “the big one,” and it’s a scary unknown. 

On Thursday, people will get the chance to practice how to protect themselves should “the big one” hit — with the Great Oregon ShakeOut and “Tsunami Fun Walk.”
