Troubaduo performs concert in Brookings


His love of cars

 There’s good reason for Dayle Niemie to be excited about the upcoming MDA Benefit Car Show.

That’s because the 61-year-old Brookings resident has suffered from muscular dystrophy for more than 20 years and proceeds of the show benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Niemie’s affliction affects the muscles of his face, shoulders and legs. But it hasn’t prevented him from continuing to work and to enjoy his passion for reconditioning classic cars.



Gun fight set at 'High Noon'

 Brookings’ own Academy Award winner and Hollywood legend Elmo Williams will host the 22nd and final two lecture/screening presentations Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 3 and 4, at the Chetco Playhouse.

The presentation will feature the 1952 classic Western film “High Noon” as well as musical entertainment and a gunfight skit by a group – Shirley Hyatt, Jan Kaplan, Lon Goddard, Rudy Glen, Saun Stone, John Boye, Steve Seney and John Marshall – calling itself The Guns of the Pioneers.

Williams won an Oscar for Best Editing of  a Motion Picture, which will be displayed at the screening, and will reveal the behind-the-scenes story of how the historic film was made and how he came to edit it.



Robert Elayer restores 1929 Model A

 Robert Elayer’s father taught him to be self-sufficient and fix things by himself.

The Brookings resident used that trait to turn a rusted, battered 1929 Model A into a showpiece.

The vintage vehicle, which Elayer began refurbishing in 2008, will be displayed at the MDA Benefit Car Show at Lucky 7 Casino on Saturday, Sept. 3.



BluesBox Bayou Band plays Azalea Park Sunday

 The BluesBox Bayou Band will return to the Stage Under the Stars at Azalea Park at 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 27, for the final American Music Festival concert of the season.

The band, from Sonora, Calif., is known its mix of Cajun, Zydeco, blues and American roots. At previous Brookings concerts, bandmembers have invited children on stage to play small instruments as well as given people a chance to play the rub board.

Band members are Pete Grimaldi, accordion and vocals; Julie Johnson, bass;  Frank Grimaldi, guitar; Jimi Hildreth, rub board; and Peter DeMattos; drums.  Grimaldi writes many of the band’s songs.
