General : Do You Know Your Ratites

Do you know your ratites? This flightless bird has amber colored eyes, blue patches on its head, and short stubby wings. Ostrich, emu, or rhea? What do you think?

Outdoors : Grotto Falls

The beautiful Grotto Falls is located just outside of Glide, Oregon. The total height of the falls is 80 feet, and especially after the snow melts, the water cascades in a breath taking “curtain” effect.

The beautiful Grotto Falls is located just outside of Glide, Oregon. The total height of the falls is 80 feet, and especially after the snow melts, the water cascades in a breath taking “curtain” effect. Grotto falls is named for the deep cut cave just behind the deluge of water, and is part of the Umpqua River Watershed. The stream flowing in this area is called the Emile Stream; named after French settler Emile Shivingny during 1875.

Thankfully, this enchanting waterfall is an easy destination to get to, the hike up several switchbacks to the falls is only 1/3 of a mile. One of the best parts of Grotto falls is the grotto itself- the cave behind the falling water is accessible and easy to get to. Great for exploring, the cave is filled with rocks and even some crawling critters.

The spectacular view, fun explorations, and easy hike make this a great waterfall for hikers of all levels, and friends or family looking for an adventure. Because of the opportunity to venture behind the falls, make sure to have a watchful eye on children at all times.

NEW FALLEN DEPUTY MEMORIAL DEDICATED

News Release from Douglas Co. Sheriff's Office
Posted on December 28th, 2018 10:57 AM

"Nulla dies umquam memori vos eximet aevo" or "No day shall erase you from the memory of time". That is the fitting inscription on the newly installed fallen deputy memorial which was officially dedicated and unveiled to the public on Thursday, December 20, 2018.

The memorial hangs on the wall in the lobby of the Sheriff's Office in Roseburg. It depicts four members of the agency who lost their lives while in service to the community and agency. The memorial was made possible by donations from the Douglas County Law Enforcement Association, Roseburg Optimist Club and the volunteers of Douglas County Search and Rescue.

The memorial features photographs and a brief story of the fallen deputy's service and sacrifice. Those remembered in the memorial include:

• Sergeant Gerald G. Chirrick
• Corporal Virgle D. Knight Jr.
• Special Deputy Ronald H. Terwilliger
• Posse Deputy Carol S. Anderson
• Deputy Morris L. Taylor

Since 1985 the Sheriff’s Office has dedicated a space for a memorial wall within the secure and non-public are of the office. As a way to pay better tribute to their sacrifice and in an attempt to better memorialize and honor our fallen, it was decided the memorial would be moved to a more public location.

In a private ceremony, Sheriff John Hanlin dedicated the memorial and thanked those who helped to make it a reality.

“It is important for us all to remember and honor our fellow law enforcement brothers and sisters who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty”, said Sheriff Hanlin.

Those invited to attend were family members of the fallen, Douglas County Commissioners, members of the Douglas County Law Enforcement Association, Search and Rescue, and the Roseburg Optimist Club. Approximately 20 people attended, including Commissioners Chris Boice and Tim Freeman.

The memorial was designed, constructed and installed by the Eugene based Presentation Design Group. #DCSO

Wolf Creek Falls Trail is a 2.3 mile moderately difficult out and back trail located near Glide, Oregon that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, trail running, and birding and is best used from April until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

Secluded in a tranquil forest setting, a beautiful two-tiered waterfall tumbles over rock cliffs to a pool below. The upper falls drops 75 feet and the lower falls drops 50 feet. The first half mile of the trail is wheelchair accessible.
During the rainy season of winter and early spring, the massive upper Wolf Creek Falls puts on a display of strength and power. Spring brings on lush vegetation and vibrant colors for photographers. Spring and early fall, with a light overcast, are considered the best weather conditions for taking memorable photos. The reduced water flows in the summer months reveal delicate and complex channels and pathways that water has carved into the bedrock cliffs underneath Wolf Creek Falls.

The 1.2 mile hike begins over an arched footbridge which spans Little River. The trail is disabled accessible up to a single picnic site located approximately .5 miles up the trail. The first half of the trail is classified as easy, but then becomes moderately difficult to Wolf Creek Falls due to steeper slopes. The trail is maintained by the local Wolf Creek Job Corps.

The trailhead is located 10.7 miles up Little River Road (Country Road 17) which starts from Highway 138 in Glide, Oregon.
