One is an old cabinetry shop. Another is in the basement of a commercial building on Chetco Avenue. A third is in the garage of a house overlooking the Chetco River.

What they all have in common is they are breweries. It is these inauspicious places that malted barley, water, hops and yeast are transubstantiated into beer. 


Car show raises funds for MDA

SMITH RIVER — Organizers of the 15th annual MDA Car Show were pleased with the turnout, which helped to increase the funds received for local Muscular Dystrophy Association programs.

Show organizer Tom Lee said the show netted about $4,500, about $1,000 more than last year. The number of cars entered, a total of 84, in Saturday’s show at Lucky 7 Casino and Hotel, was the same as in 2012, so Lee believes the additional funds came from increased attendance.

Docia Sweet Hall appeared to have a giant rainbow within its doors with all the dahlias in bloom during the first Wild Rivers Dahlia Society show. 

Brilliant hues filled the large room with orange, pink, purple, yellow, white, and scarlet reds greeting flower admirers who leisurely strolled from table to table during the show Saturday and Sunday at the Event Center on the Beach in Gold Beach.

I followed the command and thrust a thumbs up out to communicate I heard the pilot Harry Chaffee.

The g-forces pushed me back into my seat, my arms holding my camera dropped down like they had heavy weights attached to them.

And then I was upside down, looking up at the ocean with the sky below my feet.
