Puppy, dog, kitten, cat. Brookings students, take your pick. 

Brookings resident Jerry Yegge has agreed to pay for the adoption costs for six pets: one each for three girls and three boys, from the South Coast Humane Society as an Easter memorial for his son, Captain John Paul Yegge, who passed away about two years ago.

“It’s primarily because this is what my son would want,” Yegge said when asked why he decided to do this. “He would prefer this type of memorial. Anything to do with animals.”

Mention Bruce Stewart as a longtime Brookings-Harbor artist, and few people will recognize the name.

“Because my little brother pronounced Bruce as ‘Berz,’ I ended up being called Buzz. This is what people have called me throughout my entire life,” Stewart said.

As a child, Buzz didn’t have much to do with art work. It wasn’t until he was in the Navy that he began illustrating letters by hand.

Chetco Pelican Players will be presenting a six-week acting class starting Monday, March 12, with instructor Howard Patterson. 

All ages are welcome, but recommended ages are 12 and older. For new actors, emphasis will be overcoming the fear of being on stage. For the more experienced actor, emphasis will be on learning to listen on stage and how to react to the moment. Also, Patterson will work with actors to help them in understanding one’s character, what the character needs to achieve, and what obstacles are in his way. 

Actors will be teamed up and will work on selected scenes or monologues, and then the in-class performance positively critiqued.
