‘Robin Hood’ begins its second weekend Thursday


"Robin Hood" has a band of merry men.
Four shows remain for the comedy presentation of “The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood” at the Harbor Performing Arts Center.

The Brookings-Harbor Community Theater production will be staged at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 22, 23 and 24, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 25.

The play, written by Mary Lynn Dobson and directed by Dori Blodgett, features Robin Hood (played by Steven Nagel) and the merry woodsman, who take from the rich and give to the poor. In his never-ending quest to aid the needy, he encounters a not-so-usual damsel-in-distress, Lady Marian (Cassidy Ward)  who likes to be in melodramatic. Also featured is her brassy Lady in Waiting (Pam Lynn) and a scheming Sheriff of Nottingham (Gary Reissner), a villain who has a knack for bowling.

Remembering 9/11


Brookings Police Reserve Officer Terry Axel and Marine Corps League member Mike Noonan salute.
Pride, appreciation and sadness mixed Sunday at Azalea Park as 200 people gathered to honor those who died in the 9/11 terror attacks.

The third annual 9/11 Concert and Candle Light Vigil was hosted by the Brookings-Harbor Red Shirts. President Sharon Hitzman said it’s important that people never forget the tragedy that killed almost 3,000 people 10 years ago.

“We added the band to make it a little more upbeat,” she said. “Every year it gets a little better.”
