SMITH RIVER – Thanks to the generosity of car enthusiasts, the Muscular Dystrophy Association received $3,579 from Saturday’s MDA Car Show at Lucky 7 Casino.

About 85 cars were entered into the annual event, which was founded by MDA client Dayle Niemie, who is a car enthusiast and still attends the event that is now organized by Tom Lee, president of the Curry County Cruisers car club.



Tickets on sale for ‘Bed, Breakfast and Broadway’


Tickets are now on sale for Brookings-Harbor Community Theater’s comedy “Bed, Breakfast and Broadway!” scheduled to open Friday, Sept. 14.

Written by Arlen Daleske and Dennis Reece, and directed by Scotty Oka, “Bed, Breakfast and Broadway” introduces a wacky cast of actors, rehearsing for their big community theater production of “You Only Die Twice.” 

Marge Cunningham, played by Bj Farris, is the author of this “spell-binding murder mystery,” and runs the Enchanting Dreams Bed and Breakfast, which doubles as the community theater. When she receives word that a top Broadway producer (Geoffery Howard) is coming to town to hopefully “discover” some fresh acting talent, she notifies the cast, and they go into high gear to perfect the show before opening night.

SMITH RIVER – At first it was just one more car show for Tom Lee. The classic car collector from Smith River doesn’t miss many of them, so it was only natural for him to take part in the annual MDA Benefit Car Show.

Then he got to know two of the organizers, Dayle Niemie and Bill Hamilton of Brookings. They both have muscular dystrophy, and gradually the work of putting on the show became too much for them.

“(Niemie) and Bill Hamilton did the whole thing,” Lee said. “He was ready to give it up.”
