It’s the last week of March and my mother is franticly calling every bakery from Brookings to Coos Bay in search of apple pies.

You see my mom is a great cook, but cooks throw things together.

When it was announced that Brianne Dodgen had won first-runner-up in the Azalea Scholarship Pageant, the four remaining princesses – Liz Lindley, Ashley Juarez, Meredith Horel and Emilee Bottoms – held hands in anticipation of who would be queen of the 2011 Azalea Festival.

The tension finally broke as Master of Ceremonies Les Cohen announced that Lindley was the winner. Lindley immediately showed her joy as the other princesses applauded her.

Following the announcement, 2010 Queen Ashley Lueckfeld came over to her to place the crown on Lindley’s head and the red cape on her shoulders. With a bouquet of flowers, in her hand, Lindley made a trip down the runway to give her coronation curtsy in front of the standing-room-only crowd at Brookings Church of the Nazarene Saturday night.

The pageant is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. at Brookings Church of the Nazarene, 1600 Chetco Ave.

The princesses – Brianne Dodgen, Liz Lindley, Ashley Juarez, Emilee Bottoms and Meredith Horel – have been preparing for the pageant for weeks, practicing singing, dancing, speaking, walking and curtsying.

Can an egg be dropped from a height of 30 feet and not break when it hits the pavement below?

Two weeks ago, the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) issued an invitation to the community to see if it could be done.

People who accepted the challenge gathered at the Brookings Airport Saturday morning for the first Egg Drop Contest. They arrived with an assortment of ideas – a variety of homemade parachutes, different kinds of padding, ranging from foam rubber to bubble wrap, to help protect the eggs.
