The Best on Stage

Bj Farris and Lon Goddard are all smiles after receiving awards for Best Costumes.

The Chetco Pelican Players Saturday night presented Packy awards for the best performances of 2014.

Members and season-ticket holders voted on nominees to determine who would receive awards. Board members also chose recipients of special awards.

Receiving the most awards for the season — eight — was the musical “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.” “The Importance of Being Earnest,” directed by Karen de Lucca, received seven awards, but took the coveted Best Overall Production trophy.


Re-enacting a truce

Walking through in the dusty landscape of their station in Kabul, Afghanistan, members of the Oregon National Guard might see a number of things: other soldiers in camouflage accompanying officers to meetings, a helicopter flying overhead, or colleagues relaxing during their down time.

If they’re lucky, though, they might be more focused on what they hear: they could run into Ryan Johnson playing his violin.

“I’ve played the violin since I was 8 years old,” said Johnson, 22. A longtime Brookings resident, Johnson has served in the National Guard since 2010. He has been in Kabul since August and will return to Oregon in May or June.

During his time in Afghanistan, Johnson has participated in a military tradition honoring the 100th anniversary of an event that took place during World War I.
