Hikes with Holden: The Trail with a Big Imprint

CURRY COUNTY, Ore. — Located about an hour west of Grants Pass is Babyfoot Lake, but I promise you, it'll leave a big imprint after you visit. The drive to the trailhead is half the fun, you start on Redwood Highway turn at Eight-Dollar Mountain and eventually find yourself driving through a narrow bridge that leads to miles of (you guessed it) windy forest service roads.

ODFW radio-tagging Coquille smallmouth bass in research project, Sept. 13

Radio-tagging smallmouth bass in the Coquille Basin may help biologists remove more of these non-native fish negatively impacting native fall chinook salmon. CHARLESTON, Ore – ODFW biologists are radio-tagging smallmouth bass in the Coquille River to learn more about these invasive non-native fish negatively impacting fall chinook salmon. Captured smallmouth bass eight inches or larger get a surgically implanted radio tag that can be tracked for up to 18 months depending on battery life. Biologists then use radio telemetry equipment to track movements of the tagged fish. Tagging efforts are concentrated in the South Fork Coquille River where much of the smallmouth bass population occurs. Some bass may be tagged in other portions of the Coquille Basin. It is important to know when and where these fish move to overwintering areas in the Coquille, and when they move back upriver in the spring. Timing information may help biologists remove more smallmouth bass during electroshocking, or experiment with alternative removal methods such as trapping. “We’re looking for opportunities to get as many of these non-native fish out of the Coquille system as possible,” says Gary Vonderohe, Assistant District Fisheries Biologist. Anglers are reminded it is illegal to keep a radio-tagged fish. Radio-tagged bass will have an antenna protruding from the side of the fish. The goal is to radio tag about 20 smallmouth bass.

Oregon OSHA announces recipients of annual Workers’ Memorial Scholarship awards to boost student achievement, Sept. 12

Salem – Each of them has different educational goals, career plans, and dreams. All of them have endured the personal and financial hardships that result when a parent is lost to a workplace death. Three Oregon high school graduates are recipients of the 2022 Workers’ Memorial Scholarship awards, the Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division (Oregon OSHA) announced. The awards program helps finance higher education for family members of Oregon workers who have been fatally injured or permanently disabled on the job. “In the face of serious challenges, these students have shown a lot of heart and a lot of determination in staying focused on their educational pursuits,” said Renee Stapleton, acting administrator for Oregon OSHA. “These awards represent an opportunity for us to help them continue to grow as they move forward on each of their unique paths.” Learn more about the Workers’ Memorial Scholarship, including how to apply and how to support it, by visiting online. It is open to any high school graduate, graduating high school senior, GED recipient, or current college undergraduate or graduate student who is a dependent or spouse of an Oregon worker who has been fatally injured or permanently disabled while on the job. This year’s recipients include: Ginger Ewing, Bandon. Ewing, a graduate of Bandon High School, will be a senior at Linfield University this fall. Her degree plans include coursework in public health, with a goal of becoming a registered nurse. “My inspiration to achieve my goals comes from wanting to help others, as well as being able to care for my mother, as she has cared for me my whole life,” she said. Ewing’s father, a cattle ranch worker, was fatally kicked in the head by a horse. She is receiving a $1,000 award.
