  • Rogue Community College's Wiseman Gallery is looking for tattoo design submissions from students for a 2014 art exhibit.
    "Student Body Art" will be run April 9 through May 9, 2014, at the gallery. It will be devoted to celebrating the "sophistication and prominence of the contemporary art of tattoo," according to a release.
    A jury will select 25 designs and print them on 16-by-20-inch vinyl banners for display.
    The banners will become the property of the artists after the show.
    To enter, students should submit a digital image of their design to hgreen@roguecc.edu.
    The image should be saved as a 300 dpi jpeg. A title, intended body part for the design and contact information should be included.
    Deadline for entries is Feb. 15, 2014. Finalists will be notified by March 7.
    AAA estimates 15.9 million year-end holiday travelers will venture 50 miles or more from home in the region this year, an increase of 0.4 percent compared with 2012.
    Of that group, 89 percent will travel by car.
    The organization's Pacific Region includes Washington, Oregon and California. The period of travel is defined between Saturday, Dec. 21, and Wednesday, Jan. 1.
    Nationally, 94.5 million people will travel during the same period, an increase of 0.6 percent from the 94 million people who traveled last year.
    AAA estimated 91 percent of holiday travelers nationwide will drive to their destinations.
    The Jackson County Sheriff's Department is asking for help tracking down thieves who towed away a $13,981 trailer being used as an office at a Central Point construction site.
    Cougar Construction crews discovered the trailer was gone at 7 a.m. Dec. 3 from a job site in the 1200 block of Kirtland Road. The office trailer, a 1999 Pacific Mobile Structures unit measuring 8 feet wide and 34 feet long, had been there at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 2, a sheriff's department news release said.
    Overnight, thieves cut a padlock at the site, drove in and pulled it off the lot, the release said.
    The mobile office is gray with blue trim. It has a dual axle and has the words "Pacific Mobile Structures" stenciled on the side. Cougar Construction rented the trailer from that Washington-based company.
    Anyone with information about the trailer should contact the Jackson County Sheriff's Department tip line at 541-774-8333 or Crime Stoppers of Southern Oregon at 1-800-850-0580.
    Crime Stoppers will pay a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
    Callers can remain anonymous.
