Swearing-in ceremony

Lincoln County’s newest circuit court judge, Marcia Buckley (above, left), takes the oath of office during a special ceremony held at noon on Monday at the Lincoln County Courthouse in Newport. She is being sworn in by Judge Sheryl Bachart. Also during this ceremony, Bachart administered the oath of office to Lincoln County’s new district attorney, Jonathan Cable (below, left). Both Buckley and Cable were appointed to these positions last month by Gov. Kate Brown, however, each will have to run for the office in the May 19 primary election, and challengers for both positions have already filed with the Lincoln County Clerk’s Office. The last day for any candidate to file is March 10. (Photos by Steve Card)
