Food Fright

For some reason, kids (and kids at heart) love foods with the “ick” factor – the grosser the better, it seems – and Halloween is a great time to take advantage of this perverse penchant for the yuckiest edibles around.

Whether having a Halloween bash for the masses or just trying to have fun with the family, there are some fun foods sure to challenge the senses. Those who can get past the thought of it, these terribly tantalizing treats are actually fine to eat.



Duncans gifts are for the dogs

Forbes and Beverly Duncan hope to bring a lot of holiday cheer to visitors at the Christmas Bazaar – and to the scores of dogs that Pennies for Pooches help at the Gold Beach Animal Shelter each year.

The Duncans serve as the fundraising arm of the nonprofit organization; this will be the group’s first time at the annual holiday bazaar in Brookings, which takes place Nov. 10 at Kalmiopsis Elementary and Azalea Middle schools.

“We love animals; we are animal fanatics,” Forbes said. “We knew (shelter supervisor) Catherine (Powers) needed help because they were going nonprofit, so we stepped forward to help.”

The Chetco Pelican Players are presenting a terrifying tour of a haunted hotel inside the former West Coast Appliance warehouse at the corner of Highway 101 and East Hoffeldt Lane in Harbor.

The haunted house, called “Hotel Hell,” was open Friday, Saturday and Sunday and has made people jump and, in a few cases, run out of the building to catch their breath.


Vienna Boys Choir sings in concert

The Vienna Boys Choir will be performing Wednesday at Trinity Lutheran Church.
Friends of Music presents The Vienna Boys Choir on a special day and location – 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24, at Trinity Lutheran Church, 1200 Easy St., Brookings.

Doors open at 7 p.m.

The Vienna Boys Choir is one of the oldest boys’ choirs not attached to a church or a college. It began as a traveling choir attached to the Austrian court. Its roots go back to the 13th century, but records from the early phases are tenuous and scarce, according to a Friends of Music press release. 

In the late 15th century, the choir was part of the court music of Maximilian I, the holy Roman emperor, who moved the court from Innsbruck to Vienna and thus is credited with the foundation of the Chapel Imperial.

The choir of around 100 choristers between the ages of 10 and 14 is divided into four touring groups. The choirs are of equal standing; the tours, appearances in Vienna and recording projects are shared among them. Each choir has a choirmaster, and two tutors who travel with the boys. 

The choirs are named after famous Austrian composers associated with the choir’s history – Bruckner, Haydn, Mozart and Schubert. 

The four choirs give around 300 concerts and performances each year in front of nearly half a million people. Each group spends nine to 11 weeks of the school year on tour. They visit virtually all European countries, and they are frequent guests in Asia, Australia and the Americas.

Tickets for the perfmance are $20 for adults and free for students and available at The Book Dock in Harbor and Wright’s Custom Framing and Art Supplies in Brookings.

Season tickets are available for $75 for the remaining oncerts of the 2012-13 season. Concerts will be on Sundays at 3 p.m. at Brookings Seventh-day Adventist Church, 102 Park Ave., Brookings. 

Concerts are:

•Jan. 6 – Sierra Ensemble Trio;

•Feb. 10 – Christy Dolan, piano, and Emmett McCutchenne, flute;

•March 10 – Andreas Klein, piano;

•May 19 – “An Afternoon of Beloved Songs from Opera and Musical Theater” performed by Eugene Brancoveanu, baritone, and Marie Plette, soprano.

Those purchasing season tickets will have to option to become a member of Friends of Music. Seasonal membership is $10 and lifetime membership is $75 per person.
