Silent auction open through May 29

GOLD BEACH — The Friends of the Curry Public Library’s month-long silent auction is now underway and continues from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily through Friday, May 29.


A tall ship cruise on a pacific ocean

The open sea southwest of Crescent City welcomes passengers and crew during an evening cruise on a replica of the historic tall ship Lady Washington.

Many of us will watch opportunity come and go, and this is true for me about taking a cruise on a tall ship.

Several years ago the tall ship replica Lady Washington pulled into the Port of Brookings Harbor to wait out a storm. I went to see it and take pictures.

Not long afterward, the Grays Harbor Historical Seaport Authority in Aberdeen, Washington, owner of the Lady Washington and sister ship Hawaiian Chieftain, began making regular stops for tours in Crescent City. This gave me reason to go see the ships again.


Event blends botany, art

CRESCENT CITY — From oceanfront dunes to rocky alpine cliffs with redwood rainforest in between, Del Norte County’s 1,230 square miles of varied terrain house thousands of species of flora and fauna. This weekend, some of its most delicate and colorful residents will take center stage at the Arthur Van Deventer Wildflower Painting and Photography Competition.

The annual Ruby Van Deventer Wildflower Show has honored Del Norte’s famous amateur botanist Ruby Van Deventer for the past seven years, but this year organizers decided to change things up and add an opportunity for local painters and photographers to show their work as well as honor Ruby’s husband, Arthur Van Deventer, an artist and wildflower enthusiast in his own right.


Horse breaking competition coming to Curry

Russell Beatty, founder of Colt Starting Challenge USA, shows the progress made in training a horse by standing on its back and bouncing a giant ball.

GOLD BEACH — Breaking and training horses will be the main attraction of the Colt Starting Challenge USA competition coming to the indoor arena at the Event Center on the Beach.

The event will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, May 1 and 2. Admission is $15. The venue is at 29392 Ellensburg Ave., Gold Beach.

Bill Stiffler, president of Friends of Horses in Centennial, Colorado, saw the Colt Starting Challenge USA competitions as the perfect opportunity for his horse rescue operation. 

Stiffler said he needed good trainers to work with the horses that are at his complex. He found the right people through the competition, which matches trainers with young horses that have had limited handling, had never been saddled nor bridled and needed the understanding of horsemen and horsewomen. 



Krennan Stevens, 14, holds up the lid of the incubator while Kira Stevens, 11, adds water to create humidity that mimics a hen keeping the eggs warm until they hatch.

GOLD BEACH — Libraries, as a rule, tend to be quiet — so much so that one rarely hears a “peep” out of anyone. At the Curry Public Library that’s all about to change.

Peeping? Eggs-actly!

The Gold Beach 4-H club has partnered with Oregon State Extension agency to place an egg incubator in the children’s section of library as a way to both educate and entertain young visitors.
