Special Program: County Commission, Brookings Mayor, and Brookings City Council Candidate Forum

On October 18, 2018, KCIW hosted a special Candidate Forum in Chetco Community Library. The forum was moderated by Douglas Bunn, Dean of the Curry Campus of Southwestern Oregon Community College. All candidates for the current races of Brookings Mayor, Brookings City Council, and Curry County Commission were invited to attend and to share their ideas and hopes concerning issues that we face in Brookings-Harbor and Curry County.

Speaking to a standing-room-only audience, the candidates answered questions written by audience members and read by moderator Doug Bunn. Questions covered a wide range of topics, from local government administration to the protection of our parks and forests.

The entire event was recorded by KCIW volunteers, so if you weren’t able to attend in person, you’ll want to listen to this podcast before you vote on November 6.

Cultural Connections: Chetco Indian Memorial Project Raffle

Cultural Connections’ host Dane Tippman is joined once again by Milo Mann and Karen Crump of the Chetco Indian Memorial Project. The goal of this project is to design and construct a historical marker to commemorate the history of the Chetco Indian people. In 2009 the group secured an almost one-half acre plot of land at the Port of Brookings Harbor dedicated in perpetuity to the memorial. This donated property sits directly atop the remains of a Chetco Indian Village site, located near the mouth of the Chetco River.

Milo Mann and Karen Crump

In this episode, the organization picks out the winners of their recent fundraising raffle! Locals and visitors may have seen their Project’s booth at Fred Meyer or at the Southern Oregon Kite Festival. All proceeds go to support the construction of a bronze statue of Lucy Dick, who is regarded as the last known full-blooded Chetco woman to live in the Chetco valley!

To find out more about the donors, the prizes, and the winners, visit the Chetco Indian Memorial Project’s Facebook page at https://m.facebook.com/chetcoindianmemorial.

Listeners who would like to support this effort can make a tax-deductible donation at http://chetcoindianmemorial.com. Click the Donate button at the upper right of the page.
