Hey everyone! Can you guess what kind of guns these are? They look real, but they're actually bb guns. We've been finding people in town carrying these and a couple of them have been found in streets and alleyways. Remember, if you can't identify these as bb guns from a photo, police officers in the field can't either.

In the aftermath of the Eclipse came the inundation of traffic into Harney County.

UPDATE: The culprits have been identified! The Burns and Hines Police Departments are seeking the identity of the two individuals in the photo below. They were in the Pettibone area of Hines last night around 11pm prowling around people's houses. They are possibly linked to a prowler call on King Avenue as well. Please call dispatch at 573-6028 if you have any information.

The 2017 Eclipse will be here before you know it. The eclipse will take place on August 21, 2017 at about 10:15am. Although Harney County is not one of the prime viewing areas, we expect to see an influx of vehicle and pedestrian traffic between Friday August 18 and Tuesday August 22 as people will be traveling through, as well as using Harney County for overflow lodging. Please expect more people in the area between the above dates. As with any other major event, we are advising citizens to lock their vehicles and residences and keep an eye out for their neighbors during this time. We aren't anticipating any issues, but would like the community to be aware of what is going on and take some small extra precautions.

Just a quick heads up: Foley Drive will be closed on Monday, July 31st and Tuesday, August 1st for repaving. It will be closed off at the turnoff on Highway 20 by Triangle Park to the end of the city limits past Memorial Field.

We have had several reports today from people in the community that they have received a phone call from a man claiming to be with Harney Electric and threatening to shut off their electricity if they do not pay immediately by phone. Please do not engage with this person and do not give any personal information. The electric companies do not call you and demand immediate payment. For more information on the best way to handle these types of calls, read the article below.

Due to the recent warmer weather conditions and the upcoming Rainbow Gathering event near Seneca, we've seen an increase in foot and vehicle traffic in the cities and county. We encourage everyone to keep their house and vehicle doors locked, and keep any belongings in a secure area.

Found on highway 20 near Dairy Queen by a concerned citizen. He was running with a cocker spaniel, which got away. If this dog belongs to you, contact the Harney County Vet Clinic tomorrow morning.
