Bringing back the Monarch

A Monarch butterfly rests in its cage at Chetco Community Public Library.

A fun way to teach children about the life cycle, monarch butterflies are a popular sight in both the garden and classroom.  

Recently, however, monarch populations have been threatened, and groups around the nation have become active in trying to revive the species. The Chetco Community Public Library currently has two displays where they have been “raising” the insects, watching the progression from caterpillars to chrysalises, and finally to butterflies.

Raining Cats and Dogs: Rotary announces prize winners


It may not have been a big crowd, but the winnings were huge during the Raining Cats and Dogs fundraiser.

The event, organized by Brookings-Harbor Rotary Club, which took place Saturday at the Port of Brookings Harbor kite field, helped local nonprofits raise funds by adopting toy cats and dogs.

Each toy had a number, which matched the adoption papers. The 5,000 were dropped on a target from a helicopter. The toy that landed closest to the pin that had been adopted was the winner of $5,000.
