No Leads On Missing Woman

Police still have no new leads on a missing woman who disappeared on or around August 3rd.  36 year old Kathryn Diana Green was reported as a missing person to the Lane County Sheriff’s Office.  The search for Kathryn remains active and and the Sheriff’s department are reaching out to the community again hoping that someone will recognize her so they can verify she is safe.  Kathryn was reportedly last seen on August 3rd in the Florence area.  She is known to frequent coastal areas of Oregon, but may have also traveled to southern Oregon. Kathryn is a white female, standing 5 feet 8 inches tall with long, blonde hair and brown eyes.  The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone who has seen Kathryn since August 3, 2018 or knows where she is to call 541-682-4141.  Kathryn’s photo is on the coast radio website.

Bridge Work Continues

This week Crews are working on the new sidewalk improvements on the north side of the Siuslaw River Bridge. Southbound U.S. 101 will have a temporary left lane merge beginning just south of 2nd Street, with traffic merged into one lane just before Kingwood Street (at Dairy Queen). Traffic will remain in this configuration for approximately 3 – 4 weeks while the sidewalk is under construction. Crews will also be working on pouring the remaining bridge rail curb on the west side of the bridge. Additional remaining work includes installing new expansion joints, constructing new sidewalk improvements on the north side next to Old Town Way, and new sidewalk ramps on the south end of the bridge.  Be prepared for traffic delays.

New Crabbing Rules on Port Docks

After a series of complaints from residents that live aboard their boats at the port of Siuslaw docks, the port has decided to limit where crabbers can set their pots.  Live-aboard residents have complained that they have arrived back to their homes only to find beverage containers stacked along the railings of their boats, crab pots tied to rented slips and trash left on the docks.  The port has decided to limit the space for crabbing to the area behind ICM and Moe’s restaurants.  And area that is exclusively for visiting and residential boating will be off limits to crabbers.
