Preparing for the stage

Kimberly Medina receives her award certificate from Gordon Clay.

The Azalea princesses recently completed their Toastmasters’ Speechcraft workshop during a graduation ceremony at the Chetco Community Public Lbirary. Certificates were presented by Toastmasters member Gordon Clay. The event was followed with refreshments provided by the Curry Coastal Pilot. 

Three Little Pigs head out to a ranch

It’s time for folks to get their boots and cowboy hats on, get a partner and giddyap on over to our rodeo ranch because Brookings Harbor Community Theater presents the youth production of “The Three Little Pigs Out West.”

This show, which opens Thursday, March 5, is filled with knee slappin’, toe tappin’ songs and energetic characters, according do Director Charis Abblitt. 


Oregon’s giants

Hikers will find a well-manicured trail, although steep in places, through a redwood forest between the Winchuck River and the state line.

Last year, I wrote for the Pilot about the Oregon Coast Trail through Boardman State Park from Lone Ranch Beach to Hooskanaden Creek. 

My goal was to write about easy--to--find, easily accessible trails, while getting exercise and connecting with nature. I had a lot of fun in the process. 

Though I grew up in Brookings, there were quite a few sections of this trail I’d never hiked. Now that I’ve hiked the whole thing, I can say 100 percent of the trail is beautiful and worth your time and energy. I can’t express that enough.

Recently I’ve seen lots of people posting on the social media (many of whom are newcomers to the area) asking about local trails. To the rescue, here I am. This year, I intend to showcase several trails east of Highway 101. The kind where getting there is half the adventure. There are several trails in the area I’ve never explored, so I’m excited!


Students geared up for robotics competition

Kevin Brambila and Kylie Johnson make adjustments to robot.

On a Wednesday afternoon, students are hard at work in the Brookings-Harbor High School robotics lab. 

Kevin Brambila and Kylie Johnson huddle around the base of the robot with a wrench, tightening some bolts. Ben Saucerman and Jesse Wiseman hunch over a laptop, trying to connect the robot to the school’s network. They are busy refining the mechanisms that control the robot’s actions.

These students, part of the BHHS robotics team, are making changes to a machine that they will soon debut at the First Robotics Competition, an event that gives students the opportunity to design a robot with a specific purpose, and have that robot compete against those built by teams from high schools around the state.
