The Boardinghouse: A play that tickles the funny bone

Boardinghouse guests are eager to find out from Dr. Sni-Fell (Evan Wise) what kind of bone, a clue, was found. The Pilot/Bill Schlichting
Three chances remain to see a hilarious play that has tickled the funny bones of the audiences.

“The Boardinghouse,” presented by Brookings-Harbor Community Theater is a frenzy of silliness and filled with characters who are far from stable. The show is pure entertainment written with one thing in mind: enjoyment.


Restoring the dunes


By 2011, restoration efforts have changed the appearance of the same dune. The Pilot/ Andrea pickart

CRESCENT CITY – Looking out over the seemingly endless expanses of European beach grass in Tolowa Dunes State Park, the idea of clearing out all of the invasive plant often triggers a  response like, “Yeah, right.”   

But efforts in Lanphere dunes to the south in Humboldt County have accomplished just that, restoring 90 percent of the area to a flowering, bio-diverse collection of native plants.

Proof of the possibility of restoration locally will be demonstrated during a tour  at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 24, comparing the monotony of beach grass to the vibrant, multi-colored variety of more than 70 native plants at a recently restored 17-acre site in Tolowa Dunes.



ROCK ON! Auditions for teen band set

Country and rock musicians ages 14 to 20 who play an instrument and/or sing are encouraged to audition for a band at 6 p.m. on July 7 at the Brookings-Harbor Community Theater. 

The public is invited to attend with a donation at the door. All proceeds will go toward future Brookings-Harbor Community Theater productions. 

Country-rock singer Camryn Ridgley, 16, of Crescent City, will be the lead singer of the band. 



Sanger Lake: Off the beaten path in Eastern Del Norte County

Sanger Lake is in a bowl at 5,000 feet above sea level in Eastern Del Norte County. The Pilot/Bill Schlichting
GASQUET – Nestled high in the Siskiyou Mountains is a crystal clear jewel of a lake near the Del Norte-Siskiyou county line.

Sanger Lake sits in a bowl, 5,000 feet above sea level, surrounded by mountain peaks on three sides and a portion of a fourth. A stream flows out of the lake, the water almost immediately plummets down the side of the mountain where it feeds into the upper reaches of the Middle Fork Smith River.

Nearby is a jagged mountain of ancient serpentine that has the same name as the lake. Sanger Peak rises 5,862 feet above sea level and is among the highest peaks in the immediate vicinity. The east side of the mountain is steep with vertical walls rising 500 feet.

Sanger Peak and nearby Haystack Mountain are prominently visible from Highway 199 looking south from Cave Junction. Likewise, from Sanger Peak is an unobstructed view of the Illinois Valley.
