(St. Helens, OR) -- The sheriff of Columbia County is warning that citizen safety will be under threat if the county jail shuts down. Sheriff Jeff Dickerson is urging voters to approve a seven-million-dollar levy that would keep the jail running for another three years. The levy vote is slated for May 20th. Columbia County voters rejected a similar levy in November.
