No Convictions In Eastside Case
Blame Is Placed On Ryan And Griffin Boys
Former Could Not Be Found and Latter Alleged to be Not Entirely Responsible
The trial of the three Eastside boys who were arrested and brought before the juvenile court was held by Judge Wade yesterday afternoon. It was alleged that the boys had demolished a wagon belonging to an Eastside lady.
The two McHale boys were acquitted as it was shown that they had not been guilty of the destruction of the property. The blame was placed on the Griffin boy and the Ryan boy. The latter ran away and could not be found when the arrests were made, and it was claimed that the Griffin boy had received a blow on the head when quite young which caused him to not entirely responsible for his acts.
In view of the fact that Ryan could not be found and because of the plea made for the Griffin boy there was no convictions.

Griffith eyes slough land
By Dan Schreiber, Staff Writer
Just days after the death announcement for a bill to expand the potential boundaries of the South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve, Coos County Commissioner John Griffith opened dialogue toward buying property for the county inside the proposed legislation's expanded range.
Griffith said he spoke to Rep. Susan Morgan, R-Myrtle Creek, and the conservation nonprofit Trust for Public Lands about the possibility of using the federal Forest Legacy Fund program to purchase property owned by the Plum Creek Timber Co. just south of the Joe Ney Slough.
The federal program enables state and private entities to purchase property development rights while allowing logging to continue.
