Trivia Night teams raised $4,500 for Relay for Life.
A team from the Curry Coastal Pilot once again proved that it knows a little bit about everything — which proved good enough to win the annual Relay for Life Trivia Challenge.
The Pilot team has squashed other competitors two of three years the event has taken place. Last year a team of surfers and gardeners, calling itself Surf and Turf, won the challenge while the Pilot came in fourth among 14 teams.
Beekeepers in Curry County were shown innovations in beehive construction when the Oregon South Coast Beekeepers Association met Thursday in Gold Beach.
Del Barber, association president, showed his innovations, which improve upon the single board used in top bar hives. He improved the sides and bottom to support the comb and he inserting a strip of comb at the top to get the bees started.
He showed the 20 people in attendance his latest version of a top bar hive constructed of cedar that included a corrugated plastic top plate, a telescoping lid with ventilation, an experimental “bee space”-sized slit for an entryway, and wood strips to serve as handles.
