It’s been said that the Cobra is one of the deadliest creatures on earth, but Friday night the Panthers of Gold Beach High School pulled the Central Linn Cobra’s fangs and proved that — at least in OSAA 2A football -— the Panther is the deadliest of all.
Gold Beach High School beat Central Linn 35-0 in a game where the Cobras could only enter the Panthers’ redzone, but never score.

“I got one,” one angler exclaimed last Monday on the north bank of Social Security Bar after the Chetco River opened for the retention of Chinook above river mile 2.2 on November 2.
“No you don’t — you got me,” said another angler directly across from him on the south side of the river.
