Special Olympics: Torch makes its way through Curry County

The Curry County Special Olympics team is tough — and on Monday they came out in full force. About 32 people — athletes, family members and supporters — jogged the streets of Gold Beach, passing between them the iconic Olympic torch as they cheered each other on.

The Torch Run, an annual event for Special Olympics participants, was in honor of the athletes, many of whom will head to the state track and field meet in Newberg from July 9 to 10. About 20 athletes from Curry County will compete with people from all over the state in events like the 50-meter dash, 4x100-meter relay, shot put and walking events. The meet is one of their biggest events of the year, and the result of months of practice for the athletes.

Brookings-Harbor’s Abbey Schreiber, who turned heads last spring when she qualified for the state championships in the pole vault, has turned heads once again.

Schreiber won the girls’ 17-18 year-old pole vault and finished fourth in the triple jump at the United States Track and Field (USATF) Oregon Association Championships  at Jesuit High School, Thursday through Sunday. Both marks qualify her to compete in the Junior Olympic regional championships July 7 to 10 in Seattle.


Coho season opens today

When Dave York from Brookings, left, and Martin Bantle from Mercer Island, Washington have a hankering for some fresh fish and chips, they know right where to go ­— the numerous reefs that pepper the Pacific Ocean just outside the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Starting today anglers fishing the Oregon ocean from Cape Falcon south to the Oregon-California border will get a chance to keep hatchery-marked coho that have a healed adipose fin clip in the “All-salmon mark-selective coho fishery.” This particular fishery will last through Aug. 7 or until a landed catch of 26,000 marked coho is reached, whichever comes first.

This coho fishery couldn’t happen at a more opportune time, when fishing for Chinook in the Brookings-Harbor vicinity has been less than lackluster. At the very least, this coho fishery will allow anglers the excitement of being able to catch and keep a salmon of a different species, and allow them the opportunity to put one or two salmon in the fish box to take home to their families.

Salmon fishermen in the Brookings-Harbor area have been inundated by coho salmon while fishing for Chinook, with some fishermen hooking multiple coho per trip.

Running the Wild Rogue Relay: An inside look

“We’re done! Thank god!”

My teammates and I had just uttered those words upon crossing the finish line of the Wild Rogue Relay when a funny thing began to happen. As we stood around, catching our breaths and shaking off exhaustion, we looked around at each other, unsure of whether we should even say what was on our minds.

“So, you want to do this next year?”
