Rain brings mushrooms, identification workshops

Abundant rains on America’s Wild Rivers Coast have caused varieties of fungi, or mushrooms, to pop up everywhere.

Almost all are pleasing to the eye. Some make a delicious meal while others can be deadly.

Knowing the difference can save a life for those who enjoy picking mushrooms from the wild.

Mushrooms aficionados will have the opportunity to learn during workshops scheduled in November.


It’s time: Sponsors, volunteers needed to make annual event happen

Today is the first day of November and by the end of the month, Azalea Park will be colorfully illuminated by Nature’s Coastal Holiday light show.

But before any of that can happen, help is needed not only from volunteers to set up the lights, but from sponsors to help pay the cost of the event, according to Bryan Tillung, event organizer.

Not only has planning taken place for several months, but much work has been done to make this 18th annual event possible.


Three nights remain for ‘Hicksville Horror Show at Chops Mart’

Three chances remain to experience the terror of”The Hicksville Horror Show at Chops Mart” — the Chetco Pelican Players 11th annual haunted house.

Remaining shows will be from 7 to 10 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 30, from 7 p.m. to midnight on Halloween (Oct. 31), and from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 1. The event takes place in the former Shop Smart grocery store in the Brookings-Harbor Shopping Center, 97900 Shopping Center Ave., Harbor.


Group sets sights on business holiday lights

This year, Brookings-Harbor hopes to make Christmas cheer a citywide initiative.

A group of citizens are planning to dress up the town for the holidays, calling the display “A Coastal Christmas in Brookings-Harbor.” Kathy Breshears, a member of the group, explained, “We’re trying to get all the merchants in Brookings, Harbor, and the port area to light up their stores.”

The idea for the townwide effort originated on social media. While the group has yet to confirm all of their plans for decorating the town, they are pursuing several ideas. 


Honduras 10 years later

When volunteers from Oregon visited Honduras in March, they looked at this house with hopes to build a school. The “For Sale (Se Vende)” sign has come down as the dream will become a reality.

Star of the Sea Catholic Church has been sending a group to Honduras and in 10 years, has seen children go from joining gangs to getting an education.

However, financial help continues to be needed to keep the program operating.

In August 2004, Tim Stadelman traveled to Honduras with his two oldest daughters, Ann and Suzie, who were 18 and 16. The Stadelmans joined a group from Bandon with the  goal to help build houses. The housing project in Honduras was run by the late Father Tom Goekler who lived and worked in the neighborhood.
