    Say, isn't there an Ophir mine in Inyo County, CA, near Darwin?

    There is also one on the Oregon Coast about 10 miles north of Gold Beach. It had a suburb named Nesika Beach, which seems to have become a town in it's own right for a short amount of time. But the Nesika Beach fire department still has the Ophir name on it.

    There is only one or two old houses left in Ophir. Nesika Beach is now a mix of old 1920's beach houses and modern vacation homes.

    Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check, because I have to pass one to earn it for them?

    I was going to go to Ophir Days but ended up missing it. I was so worn out that when the alarm went off that morning I turned it off and went back to bed. I am planning on going to Eureka's Silver Days on Saturday with my best friend and my older daughter.
