In 2011 the 34 members of the Brookings Fire Department responded to more than 350 calls. 

Thirty-two of those members are unpaid volunteers whose efforts aren’t always recognized, let alone rewarded.

Brookings Fire Department Chief Bill Sharp felt the need to recognize the time and effort put into keeping Brookings safe from fire and, with the assistance of the Brookings Fire Association, hosted the 2012 Brookings Fire Department Awards Banquet last Saturday at the Best Western Beachfront Inn, which was attended by more than 70 people.

The noise level may have been high enough to scare off every bear, deer and coyote for a 10-mile radius, but trees can’t run and the fish were kept captive in the pond at Arizona Beach State Park long enough for the third graders from Kalmiopsis Elementary School to catch a few.

Early Wednesday morning, third graders from Dawn Bennett’s and Ken Olsen’s classrooms made their way to the pond to partake in Reel Fish Day, an angler education class offered by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW), Oregon Parks and Recreation (OPRD) and the South Coast Watershed Council (SCWC), in conjuction with the Oregon South Coast Fishermen (OSCF) and the Curry Anadromous Fishermen (CAF).

One day last year I felt as though I needed to get out of town, so I headed to Coos Bay.

As I was just south of downtown North Bend, I looked out onto the bay and saw a familiar tall ship.
