Charleston memorial accepting applications

CHARLESTON, Ore. -- Charleston fisherman who were lost at sea, or those who were life-long Charleston fishermen who died in 2012 are set to be honored on the south coast.

The committee that oversees the Charleston Lost At Sea Memorial is accepting applications for new names to be engraved, as they do this time every year. "They must have the application (that) shows that they fished out at Charleston Harbor for three years," said Margery Whitmer, the memorial secretary. "Last year, we had several names engraved. Some years there's not many names, but last year we had several names, including one lost at sea, unfortunately."

Applications for this year's additions are due by March 15 to the memorial committee.

The committee will pay for all engraving fees.
