Cape Blanco country

SIXES — Country music lovers are in for a special treat early next month on the Oregon Coast — three days of performances from artists such as Brad Paisley, Eric Church and Dierks Bentley.

The Cape Blanco Country Music Festival will be held on private land 3 miles east of Cape Blanco Lighthouse in Sixes, about five miles north of Port Orford. The festival runs Aug. 1 through 3.


It’s kite flying time!

It’s time to fly at the 22nd annual Southern Oregon Kite Festival, which kicks off Friday with an indoor kite flying demonstration.

The free exhibition will be from 7 to 9 p.m. July 18 in the Brookings-High School gymnasium, 625 Pioneer Road, Brookings. 

Kite pilots will demonstrate movements with kites of varying sizes that are designed to fly in a windless environment. The motion generated by the kite flier moving backward and in circles while pulling and jerking on the kite lines provides the “wind” for the kites to move, event organizers said.  


Sam Dotson chosen Grand Marshal

Relay for Life Grand Marshal Sam Dotson holds his grandson Max Armstrong while his granddaughters Emmy Armstrong, left, and Dani Dotson play in the tree.

Retired Brookings police officer Sam Dotson has walked 270 miles around the Brookings-Harbor High School track in the 11 years he has been involved with Relay for Life.

Each year, he walked one mile for each year his wife, Rita, was a cancer survivor. In 2011, he got up to 34 miles in one night — but then later that year Dotson was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Now that he has been added to the list of survivors, and because of his contribution to Relay for Life, Dotson has been chosen the 2014 Relay for Life grand marshal.

Kingdoms battle during medieval festival

OPHIR — The tents were up and the cry was out: The Renaissance Festival is here!

Anne “of Whaleshaven” Neal rolled her eyes. Renaissance? Whomever was spreading that word was only off by a good 500 years.

“That was later,” she said, as she repaired a beaded necklace. “This is medieval times. A Renaissance fair is there to entertain you. We’re here to help you have a good time.”

And fight — a lot.
