Seeing the wizard behind the curtain

Amaya Eckersley receives finishing touches for her role as a porcelain doll by fellow actress Michaela Renee George backstage during intermission.
Reviewing a play is one thing, but to get a good, up close and personal look at what goes into live theater, one needs to be a part of it.

I have written reviews for many plays produced by Chetco Pelican Players, Brookings Harbor Community Theater and Ellensburg Theater Company. I have photographed dress rehearsals to publicize the productions. Doing all this has given me the curious desire to become a part of a play.


Cooking up success!

Misty Young. The Pilot/Don Iler
Misty Young always knew she had a book in her. 

After expanding the Squeeze In, her breakfast restaurant in Truckee, Calif., from one location to several around Reno, Nev., Young knew she wanted to share the knowledge she had gained while turning her business into a success story. 


Musical trip down Yellow Brick Road


The Wizard of Oz
There’s witches and wizards, munchkins and flying monkeys, but in the end, it’s all about the shoes.

  Dorothy will wear her ruby shoes and the wicked witch will try to get them during the musical performance of the Wizard of Oz, which opens Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the Chetco Playhouse, 1240 Chetco Avenue in Brookings.


Reviving her love of poetry

Georgia Cockerham The Pilot/Don Iler
After her son was killed by a driver who ran a red light 10 years ago, Cockerham stopped writing poetry, something she had done most of her life. 

She did not write again for five years. But she eventually picked her pen up again, determined to leave something for her grandchildren.


Carousel dream

Bud Halliday envisions the “Gray Ghost” building at the Port of Brookings-Harbor as a place for a carnival carousel. The Pilot/Jane Stebbins
Bud Halliday ran away and joined the circus 29 years ago — and the 85-year-old Brookings man is still in touch with his inner kid.

After years of working as a “carney,” he now has in mind to build a carnival in Harbor and use the empty “Gray Ghost” building as its base — with A carousel as its centerpiece.
