Old Jacksonville church finally gets a bell
MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) -- A bell can now be heard ringing in the belfry of the 1879 Presbyterian Church after a nearly 10-year absence.

The years-long search has come to an end after the church was given a bell that was used in a Coos County grammar school, which closed in 1968.

The original bell was moved to the church's new home in 2006.   Joanne Wilcox, who heads a church team that maintains the old building, says the new bell has gone through various upgrades to meet regulations and requirements.

Lumen Dei Church, which rents the building for Sunday services, will be ringing the bell regularly. The bell will also be rung for special events.  

The new bell was installed in May and a dedication was held in June.

Port Orford crash leaves two injured
PORT ORFORD, Ore.- On Friday around 3 a.m., a single vehicle crash in Port Orford left two injured when the car left the road.

While the Sheriff’s Office deputy was en route to the crash scene, Port Orford Fire Department, extricated the passenger, Nicole Meeker, 36. Meeker was immediately transported to Curry General Hospital for serious injuries. Meeker was later flown by Life Flight to Rogue Valley Hospital for further treatment and evaluation.   

Around 4:30 a.m., a Curry County Sheriff’s deputy arrived on scene and took the investigation over. The Sheriff’s Deputy noticed a 1998 Dodge pickup over the embankment at this location and the vehicle appeared to be totaled.  The deputy then made contact with the driver, Johnathan Shepherd, 32, who appeared to have some minor injuries. Shepherd advised the deputy that he and Meeker had been involved in a dispute with a third person and that they had been following and possibly chasing them in another vehicle.  

Shepherd told the deputy that he was driving too fast and at one point he lost control of his truck, causing it to leave the roadway for approximately 166 feet, where he sheared off a power pole, before coming to rest after slamming head on into a tree.  The deputy on scene also put Shepherd through a series of Field Sobriety Tests, noticing that Shepherd had potentially consumed alcohol prior to the crash. 

Shepherd was later transported to Curry General Hospital for treatment on his injuries and then placed into custody on suspicion of Reckless Driving, Reckless Endangering, Criminal Mischief, and an assault charge.

At this time the Curry County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation into the crash.  According to the press release, it does appear that alcohol, speed, and possibly road rage are all factors.

Other arrests are possible. The investigation is ongoing. 

Grants Pass receives grant for a sobering center
GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) -- The proposed Grants Pass Sobering Center has been approved for a $500,000 grant that will go toward retrofitting a facility.

The grant was approved Friday by the state Legislature and will go toward a 4,700 square-foot warehouse that organizers are planning to buy from the Grants Pass Gospel Rescue Mission.

Grants Pass Republican Representative Duane Stark said fellow lawmakers in Salem were impressed by the Sobering Center board's previous fundraising efforts, which have exceeded $140,000.

Organizers of the proposed center will now have to generate the necessary revenue to operate the facility, estimated at about $250,000 a year.

Sobering centers are intended to provide a place for people who are intoxicated to stay until they get sober.

Splash park stays dry for weekend

CENTRAL POINT, Ore.- The splash park at Don Jones Memorial Park remains dry throughout the weekend.

There is an issue with the computer and electrical system, according to the Parks and Public Works Department.

The city heard about the problem on Saturday morning.

"Our staff went out to review what was going on and tied to do the normal reset options and realized that none of those options were working and so we tried to get an electrician out to the site to take a look at the main electrical panel," said Matt Samitore, the director of Parks and Public Works.

Getting the splash park back up and running has taken longer than expected because of the holiday weekend, according to Samitore.

The city plans to have the water flowing again by Monday afternoon.

Apartment Fire Displaces Residents
By Aaron Nilsson/KTVL.com
CENTRAL POINT, Ore. -- A fire in Central Point Saturday afternoon is under investigation.

It happened at Sunrise Apartments just before 2:30.

Jackson County Fire District 3 and Medford fire-rescue responded.

Crews said they saw fire stretch into the ground floor, the eave, into the attic and sub floor spaces between the apartments.

The entire complex was evacuated and only eight units were allowed back in while an electrician inspected the wiring.

A resident in another building said she came home to find flames on top of the apartment roof.

"From the smoke, I thought it was coming from my apartment complex. It freaked me out because a bunch of people live in an apartment complex and if something goes wrong with one of them,it could go wrong with millions, you know what I mean? it's definitely a dangerous situation," nearby resident, Lacey Roy, said.
Firefighters said no one was injured.

Some people who called 9-1-1 said the fire was started by someone lighting fireworks, but investigators cannot confirm that.

Flipping Pancakes for the Community
By Aaron Nilsson/KTVL.com
Not as old as Independence Day, but it is a decade-long tradition. 

Pancakes, sausage, oranges, milk and juice.

Troop seven was out early Saturday morning for its annual pancake breakfast in Central Point.

Scouts said this community fundraiser is a big boost to help cover much of the cost for summer camp in Seattle.

"I like it to see how happy they are. They like pancakes, because normally teenagers don't serve very much, so it's nice to see a bunch of teenage boys coming out, early, early  in the morning to serve pancakes to hundreds of people," Troop 7 scout, Landon Moir, said.

Scout leaders said they typically serve between five and six hundred people.
