High school program promotes positive behavior

Brookings-Harbor High School students have been busy writing, drawing, composing and painting pieces that “describe a moment in their life when they needed help, and someone reached out and looked for the best in them and helped them to see it” for a  Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) assignment. 

For the assignment, students were encouraged to acknowledge others who helped them recognize their strengths. 

“We felt that students needed an opportunity to be able to write about a time when somebody did something positive for them and really take a look at those people who create a positive school environment and look for the best themselves and others to encourage all students to look for the best in themselves and all others,” BHHS PBIS coordinator Michelle Prudden said.

After the delivery, when the parents were comfortably settled in a  private room, they were given “A Special Basket, for a Special Baby.” The attached  card read “Babies are Treasures of the Heart — the first baby of 2013, Best wishes.” It was signed by the Curry General Hospital Auxiliary.



‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’ on stage


The Brookings Harbor Community Theater is now presenting the junior production of “The Emperor’s New Clothes!” on stage at the Harbor Performing Arts Center.

Shows continue at 2 p.m. today (Jan. 12) with the closing weekend set for Friday and Saturday, Jan. 18 and 19. Show times are 7 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday.

“The Emperor’s New Clothes” is the tale of a vain emperor who desires to look his best. With the encouragement of the empress, he receives a visit from a crafty tailor who, with assistance from the audience, has a plan to deliver a fabric so unique that it cannot be seen by fools. Not wanting to be a fool, the emperor and his royal subjects all agree that the new clothes are the finest in the land. The story comes to a close when a child comes forward, proclaims the truth, and a chase ensues.



Wintertime at Yontocket

Equestrians stop for a moment of silence at Yontocket Cemetery.
Winter is a good time to approach Yontocket from the south. Ponds along the way are full of themselves and the Ridge Trail dries out quickly after the rains. The wildflowers of spring are absent, but so are the bugs of summer.

There are no sand dunes on this stretch. No redwoods, either, and just one fleeting ocean view. So there you have what the trail to Yontocket is not.
