This local news brief is brought to you by Southwest Oregon Regional Airport with air service from North Bend to San Francisco.

Good Friday morning.  Another “Weekend in the West” is upon us and looks a little warmer than it has been, highs in the mid 50s and overnight lows in the mid 40s.  But, rain showers still in the forecast for today, tonight and the weekend.  Winds out of the South at 5-10 mph today and from the West at 10-15 mph tonight.  With all of the concern about health, good thing immunization shots are being promoted now and with the school exclusion date looming, might be a good idea to check everyone’s immunization records.  Great report from OSU about our Coast, erosion, and rip rap efforts.  Tides are getting higher and homes on the edge are getting closer to the surf.  Another report from OSU about the Whale License Plates.  More than 10,000 issued already.  However, best keep an eye on the revenue.  It is intended for a good cause, but you might recall the Salmon License Plate.  It was also intended for a good cause, but got hijacked by the Legislature.  Former State Rep. Terry Thompson was behind the plate and was furious when the revenue was taken.  He was going to do something about it, but not sure if he did or not.  You might also recall that the Oregon Lottery was promoted originally and intended originally to go to schools and take care of an annual debt problem.  Nope.  Legislature hijacked it and took the funds to economic improvements instead.  Enough history there, rest of the news..  Charleston Crab Feed Saturday in North Bend.  Still not right!  Good cause though.  ODVA has a new Deputy Director.  Salmonberry Trail meeting today. Historic Cemeteries Commission also meets.  9-1-1 dispatchers are graduating today.  South Coast Striders have a hike Sunday.  Hunters are being encouraged to share big game hunts on line.  Spotlighting traditional cultures in Eugene.  A couple of quakes near Cape Mendocino.  Fatal on Hwy. 30.  Stabbing in Empire.  Plane Crash in Humboldt Bay.  Wild turkeys on the run in North Bend.  Burglary in Coos Bay.  In sports, prep schedules for today.  Note North Bend is hosting Crater from Central Point.  The Comets feature a 6-10 player, who is a junior, and considered one of the top college recruits in the state.  He’s good!  Just a side note.  SWOCC at home Saturday to Clark College.  Pac-12 women’s basketball has the Ducks and Beavers at home.  Oregon’s women host Arizona State Sunday in Eugene. ASU is one of the few teams to beat the UO this year.  Should be a good rematch and on the tube.  And, Civil War men’s basketball heads to Corvallis Saturday night.  Should be a good one, usually is and it will also be televised.  Have a great weekend and thank you for reading.     Matt
