A little later, Bandon Police learned that Green was staying at a campsite at Bullards State Park in Bandon. Officers notified law enforcement agencies including the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and they all responded to the scene.
Coos County’s Emergency Response Team (SWAT) went to Bullards State Park and quickly had Green in handcuffs.
At the Coos County Jail, Lincoln County and Port Orford authorities questioned Green and he admitted to his involvement in both the Columbia Bank robbery in Waldport and the Rogue Credit Union robbery in Port Orford.
Back at Green’s camp site authorities located items connected to both bank robberies and those items were seized. Green was immediately loaded in to a vehicle and transported to the Lincoln County Jail in Newport and booked on charges of Robbery, Illegal Use of a Weapon, Theft, Reckless Endangering, Menacing, Coercion and being a Fugitive from another state. Bail: $1.5 Million.
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office expresses their thanks to the multiple agencies involved in the apprehension of Green. They say the arrest was successful due to multi-agency collaboration including the Coos County Sheriff’s Office, Bandon Police Department, Brookings Police Department, Oregon State Police, the U.S. Marshals Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Green is expected to appear in Lincoln County Circuit Court for his first appearance on January 25th at 4:30pm.

Caring for someone who is nearing the end of life is not the same as caring for someone who will get better. To help clinical staff, family caregivers and others to understand the process, Samaritan Hospice Services is hosting an informative session four times this year beginning in February.
At each session, participants will watch two videos that were created by Barbara Karnes, RN, a nationally known hospice care author and educator. One is “New Rules for End of Life Care” and the other is “Care for the Caregiver.” The videos will be followed by a question and answer forum led by Samaritan’s hospice professionals. Each session will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 8, May 3, Aug. 2 and Nov. 1 at Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital in Lincoln City; and on Feb. 21, May 2, Aug. 1 and Nov. 7 at the Center for Health Education in Newport.
The DVDs are filled with ideas and guidance for the nurse, social worker, nurse’s aide, chaplain, physician, end of life Doula, who compassionately guides those with the terminally ill through the final moments of life with emotional and spiritual support, especially for care-givers. Anyone who is immersed in the responsibilities of supporting, educating and guiding a person and their family through the dying experience can find insight into making their work more meaningful.
As a former hospice nurse, Karnes was at the bedside of hundreds of people during the dying process. She was driven to explore the dynamics of dying when she noticed that each death followed a near identical script, that each person went through the stages of death in almost the same manner and that most families had the same questions. These realizations led Karnes to write books, speak and teach on the topic of end-of-life care. She brought her message to Lincoln County last year and through the video class sessions will be able to shepherd the soon-to-be-departed and their family through a compassionate process of letting go with spiritual strength and love.
Coffee and water will be offered. Resource materials will be available for purchase at $2, cash only.

Coast Guard Helo trying to spot missing man in the bay…
A latino male in a blue windbreaker was walking along the rocks off Clarke Street in Depoe Bay when a big wave washed him in to the water. Nobody can see him. The Coast Guard cannot launch a motorlifeboat craft because the waves are too huge.
A Coast Guard helicopter is being summoned to the scene.

Last week’s Tip of the Week focused on being prepared for getting out on the road in winter weather. This week week’s tips from ODOT’s Oregon Winter Driving Guide are about how to drive safely in icy and snowy weather conditions.
ADJUST YOUR DRIVING FOR THE CONDITIONS
* DON’T use cruise control in wet, icy or snowy weather.
* Position your hands on the steering wheel at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock, or lower.
* If you lose traction, gradually slow down. DON’T slam on the brakes!
* The key to keeping your vehicle under maximum control on slippery surfaces is smoothly steering, braking and accelerating. Steer just enough to follow the path you intend to go.
* Be prepared to handle potentially dangerous situations by thinking “15 seconds” ahead about your options. These include controlling your speed, changing lanes or communicating with others on the road.
* Use extra caution when driving on bridges or concrete highways because ice forms first on these surfaces.
* Avoid driving through snowdrifts. They can cause you to lose control of your vehicle.
* Slow down in advance of shaded areas (especially curves) where ice and snow are the last to melt.
* Finally, chain up early! Weather conditions can deteriorate rapidly and unexpectedly at this time of year.
There is also a handy checklist in ODOT’s Driving Guide to help you be prepared for winter driving before heading out on the road.
