      Curry County Sheriff to retire in September

      GOLD BEACH, Ore. - Curry County Sheriff John Bishop plans to retire from the position in September.

      Bishop said the 6 years he has held the office of sheriff have taken a toll on his health.

      He cites the county's continuous lack of funding for law enforcement as a factor.

      Curry County cut its public safety budget after voters rejected a $3.2 million tax proposal last fall.

      Curry County Commisioners will appoint a new sheriff to finish Bishop's term.
