A fairly strong earthquake that hit New Guinea in the southwest Pacific triggered a Tsunami Watch for the west coast of North America. But within a short time it was determined that no tsunami was headed our way. So there is no tsunami threat to our part of the world.

Boy swept away downstream – rescued by people who happened to be there…


Today around 3:00 p.m., 4 strangers leapt into action after a 4 year old boy was swept down river at the North Fork County Park reaction area in east Marion County. The boy who was standing with his father and siblings next to the water’s edge, ended up in the river after his father looked away for only a few moments. The water quickly took the boy from the upper pool through the rapids and into the lower pool.

That’s when two men Jason McDade and Christian Lozano jumped into action pulling the boy from the water. On the beach a certified nursing assistant Kelda Klukis and a registered nurse Maryela Lozano began CPR the boy’s lifeless body. When paramedics arrived the boy was again breathing and he was transported to Santiam Hospital where he is expected to make a full recovery. The child was not wearing a life vest at the time of the accident.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind all of our visitors and residents that recreating in open water can be dangerous so please wear a life vest, especially in or around moving water. We would also like to thank all of the rescuers who worked together to save a young boys life.

Medford — Governor Kate Brown today toured the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument and met with Interior Secretary Zinke to urge the federal administration to protect Oregon’s federal public lands. Governor Brown also met with local leaders and elected officials who are concerned the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument designation may be scaled back or eliminated.

“The Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument represents some of the most iconic and important public lands in Oregon,” said Governor Brown. “Oregon’s public lands are the basis of our economy and an inspiration to our communities, and we will fight to keep our public lands in public hands.

“We have a long tradition of environmental stewardship, and Oregonians worked collaboratively for decades to preserve the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument lands. I urge the federal administration to take to heart the voices of Oregonians who’ve made it clear that the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument should remain protected.”
