Errors upend Lady Panthers

If the Gold Beach Lady Panthers had one Achilles’ Heel, it was their defense.

Gold Beach had committed 79 errors in 20 regular-season games this year, an average of almost four per game.

Oregon KMZ salmon season opens

Bob Rose, from Brookings, and a friend limited out on lingcod last week while fishing in the ocean out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Southern Oregon ocean salmon aficionados are all trembling like the shaky legs of a newborn fawn, full of nervous energy whose outcome is yet uncertain. 

That is because today marks the beginning of the salmon season in the Oregon KMZ, officially the opening day of the all-salmon-except-coho season for the area from Humbug Mountain south to the Oregon/California border, also known as the Oregon KMZ.

Fishermen in the Oregon KMZ are an extremely-lucky lot. They get to fish for salmon seven days a week in the all-salmon-except-coho season lasting from May 28 through Aug. 7, and then from Sept. 3 through Sept. 5.
