Carmen McClelland: 100 years young

Playing piano is just one of many activities that Carmen McClelland, 100, loves to do.

Approaching Carmen McClelland’s home, one can hear the raucous melodies of piano music wafting on the spring air — La Cucaracha.

“We sang that all the time growing up,” the Brookings woman said. “We didn’t know what the words meant.”

She’s at her piano — the same one she played as a child — her eyes closed, fingers nimbly dancing over the keys. She wouldn’t likely use the lingo, but McClelland’s in her zone.

Talent runs deep at sinkhole contest

Comedian Jimmy Romanello wins contest.

Brookings-Harbor Community Theater did not have to dig very deep to find talent for the Sinkhole Songwriting Contest Saturday night.

Six acts came onto the stage creating laughter and cheers from the audience that gathered at the Harbor Performing Arts Center, located next to the world famous Highway 101 sinkhole.

Performers came onto the stage and covered songs with a few tweaks in the lyrics to make it about the sinkhole. For example, the first act, by Trish Cabral, performed “Danny Boy” with slightly deviant lyrics: “the pipes, the pipes are failing.”

However, winning the contest was Jimmy Romanello, who didn’t sing at all. He stood on stage, with no notes in hand, and presented a comedic story about old Highway 101. Later in the evening he told the story of a dream vacation that began with a call from a telemarketer.
