Pistol River Concert Association celebrates 30 years

PISTOL RIVER – It’s been 30 years of music and fellowship for the Pistol River Concert Association (PRCA) folks.

And they will celebrate their three decades  – and estimated 300 shows – with “three generations” of guitar masters: Jaxon Williams, Grant Ruiz and Joseph Thompson at 8 p.m. July 7.

“Our main ambition is to hire bands and people who are very professional,” said Les Stansell, who with his wife, Mary, founded the association in 1982. “Most of them make their living touring and recording. We want to be credible so people know when they see a gig here, they’ll like it a lot.”

The Boardinghouse: A play that tickles the funny bone

Boardinghouse guests are eager to find out from Dr. Sni-Fell (Evan Wise) what kind of bone, a clue, was found. The Pilot/Bill Schlichting
Three chances remain to see a hilarious play that has tickled the funny bones of the audiences.

“The Boardinghouse,” presented by Brookings-Harbor Community Theater is a frenzy of silliness and filled with characters who are far from stable. The show is pure entertainment written with one thing in mind: enjoyment.


Restoring the dunes


By 2011, restoration efforts have changed the appearance of the same dune. The Pilot/ Andrea pickart

CRESCENT CITY – Looking out over the seemingly endless expanses of European beach grass in Tolowa Dunes State Park, the idea of clearing out all of the invasive plant often triggers a  response like, “Yeah, right.”   

But efforts in Lanphere dunes to the south in Humboldt County have accomplished just that, restoring 90 percent of the area to a flowering, bio-diverse collection of native plants.

Proof of the possibility of restoration locally will be demonstrated during a tour  at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 24, comparing the monotony of beach grass to the vibrant, multi-colored variety of more than 70 native plants at a recently restored 17-acre site in Tolowa Dunes.
