Chasing rainbows

Andrew Epperson captured the full ark of the rainbow outside Sebastian’s Seafood Grill at the Port of Brookings Harbor.

The clouds parted, allowing a ray of sunshine to pierce through the moisture in the air creating rainbows that captured Curry Coastal Pilot readers’ attention.

Thursday’s colorful spectacle caused a flood of photos to be posted on Facebook. Photos were submitted to the Pilot as well. Friday morning editor Scott Graves posted on the Pilot’s Facebook page asking for rainbow photos, and many more were submitted.

Only a few could be published on this page, on Page 1A and Page 6B. Many more can be found on the Pilot’s Facebook page.

So, what is a rainbow?

The planned Chetco Indian memorial at the Port of Brookings Harbor received a $1,000 boost when the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund distributed $89,834.98 to 36 organizations.

Gold Beach bazaar open Friday, Saturday

The Pistol River Friendship Club displays items to be sold at its booth.

GOLD BEACH — Two buildings at the Event Center on the Beach will be filled with more than 50 booths for two days of holiday sales.

The free event will be open from 3 to 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 21, and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 22.

The annual Holiday Bazaar has been a pre-Thanksgiving mainstay for more than 40 years in Gold Beach. In recent years it has overflowed into two buildings, occupying Docia Sweet Hall and the Showcase Building, and offering early holiday shoppers locally-produced unique gifts.


Daniel and the Blonde returns to Vista Pub

The musical duo Daniel and the Blonde will again perform at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 21, at Vista Pub, 1009 Chetco Ave., Brookings.

This is the second time the husband and wife duo has performed at the venue this year. They performed in Brookings in February.


Community Bazaar: The art of woodwork

Roger Marcoux uses a table saw to make the final cuts on a cutting board made from various pieces of wood.

Roger Marcoux’s garage is filled with machinery of the wood-cutting variety, and features on one side a rack upon which sits planks of exotics: lustrous fiddleback maple, the vibrant red of sapella, a deep purple heartwood and a lacewood whose texture begs to be touched.

Ask him to see a piece of leopard wood.

In a corner is a basket of multi-colored sticks of the same, ready to be glued into place and made into cheese boards, cutting boards and — odd, to Marcoux’s thinking — art.
