More than 10 years ago, families jammed to live tunes in the shade of the trees at Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park.
This year, the Del Norte Child Care Council will resurrect its music festival on Saturday, Sept. 6, but instead of “Jammin’ at Jed,” folks will be “Rockin’ at Rowdy” to local bands, eating local food and browsing through the booths of local vendors.

New teachers and staff were welcomed by more than 500 people who attended the 31st annual Back-To-School Community Breakfast Monday morning at Brookings-Harbor High School.
The school’s cafeteria staff set out berries, yogurt, granola, waffles, sausages, and biscuits and gravy for the public to have a feast.
After everyone served themselves, Jerry Law of the Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce introduced the new staff — first Kalmiopsis Elementary School, then Azalea Middle School and finally BHHS. A total of 31 new staff members have joined Brookings-Harbor School District.

GOLD BEACH — “The Secret Garden” — a delightful, imaginative novel written by Frances Hodgson Burnett and adapted for the stage by Tim Kelly — is being staged by the Ellensburg Theater Company (ETC) at the Rogue Playhouse in Gold Beach.
The show is directed by Valerie MacGillivary, produced by Geri Kendall, with musical direction courtesy of Anna Weidemiller.
The result? This well-done play is a perfect outing for the entire family just as children are scheduled to go back to school.
John Webster conducts Curry-Del Norte Orchestra during Azalea Park concert earlier this summer.
Longtime music teacher John Webster knows that one is never too old to learn to play a band instrument.
That’s why Webster, with the help of Southwestern Oregon Community College, has launched the New Horizons Band project. It will offer adults a chance to play concert band instruments such as clarinet, saxophone, oboe and flute. The band will not include string instruments.
