Food Share of Lincoln County received $30,000 in grant funds from the Janet M. Bailey Fund, Schamp Family Fund, Oneatta Fund and the Grasmajeto Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation.

The mission of The Oregon Community Foundation is to improve lives for all Oregonians through the power of philanthropy. OCF works with individuals, families, businesses and organizations to create charitable funds to support the community causes they care about. Through these funds, in 2016 OCF awarded more than $100 million in grants and scholarships.

The funds were awarded in support of the future purchase of a refrigerated truck to transport perishable food from local grocery partners and to program agency sites. Each month approximately 1700 families access a food pantry or hot meal site in Lincoln County. In 2017, Food Share distributed over 1 million pounds of food and reduced food waste by recovering nearly 160,000 pounds of fresh nutritious food from local grocery and food industry partners.

The purchase of a refrigerated truck will ensure the safety and quality of the food in transport and will help FSLC meet its goal of Iaunching six new produce distributions throughout its service area.

For more information on Food Share of Lincoln County, or how you can support the refrigerated truck campaign, contact Food Share at 541-265-8578, www.foodsharelincolncounty.org, or find us on Facebook.

Still restless offshore…but more civilized on the beaches…but REMAIN VIGILANT!

After the onslaught…
Steve Griffiths

Despite the appearance of a quiet and more subdued shorebreak, the power and fury of massive wave sets still remain. For beachwalkers, keep a sharp eye out for rogue/sneaker waves that can come out of nowhere. As you survey the beach, take note of escape routes available along your route. As is common, sneaker waves don’t have to be big tall waves. They can be quite low but still two to four feet in surge, which is more than enough to take any human being kicking and screaming out to sea.

If you get snagged in a rip tide, swim parallel to the shore NOT TOWARD THE SHORE. PARALLEL TO THE SHORE. Then angle back toward the beach.

A High Surf Advisory issued by the National Weather Service for the Central Coast is in effect until 3:00pm this afternoon. Breaking waves will continue to run-up beaches much higher than normal. Waves will likely break over jetties much closer to shore than usual. Large driftwood logs can easily be carried by the high surf. Injuries or death are possible to those near or on the logs. Large ocean swells around 21 to 23 feet will continue, subsiding below 20 feet this afternoon. The threat of coastal flooding and significant beach erosion has ended.

A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in the advisory area, producing rip currents and localized beach erosion. It can be very dangerous to venture near the coast under high surf conditions. People at times are swept off rocks and jetties and drown while observing high surf. Stay well back from the water’s edge and be alert for the exceptionally high waves.

A High Wind Watch has been issued by the National Weather Service for Central Coast beaches and headlands, in effect from Saturday evening through Sunday morning. South winds 30-40 mph with gusts 55-65 mph. Strongest winds are expected early Sunday morning. Strong winds may blow down trees, branches, and power lines. Isolated power outages are possible.

A High Wind Watch means hazardous high wind conditions are favorable in and close to the watch area in the next 12 to 48 hours.

Forecast: So, it looks like we’ll be trading-in high surf for high winds. Showers continue today through tomorrow, producing up to another inch and a half inch of rain, sou’westers gusting 20-25 mph, high temps in the upper-40s and a low in the low-40s. Outlook is for rainy and windy Sunday, showers Monday, rain again Tuesday, then showers Wednesday and Thursday.

Stanley Green
Columbia Bank robbery (among others) suspect booked in to Lincoln Co. Jail

Last week, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputies received information from detectives with the Brookings Police Department and the US Marshals Service that Stanley Carl Green, 55 years of age, was spotted in the area of Brookings. The US Marshals and the Brookings Police Department were seeking Green regarding an active warrant for his arrest on the charge of Failing to Appear regarding a robbery charge out of Tacoma, Washington.

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.
