Raining Cats and Dogs: Rotary announces prize winners


It may not have been a big crowd, but the winnings were huge during the Raining Cats and Dogs fundraiser.

The event, organized by Brookings-Harbor Rotary Club, which took place Saturday at the Port of Brookings Harbor kite field, helped local nonprofits raise funds by adopting toy cats and dogs.

Each toy had a number, which matched the adoption papers. The 5,000 were dropped on a target from a helicopter. The toy that landed closest to the pin that had been adopted was the winner of $5,000.


Chetco Pelican Players: Final shows staged for youth production

The Chetco Pelican Players’ summer youth production “Annie Jr.” goes into its final weekend at the Chetco Playhouse, 1240 Chetco Ave., Brookings. 

Final shows will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Aug. 28 and 29, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 30.

“Annie Jr.” is based on the book by Thomas Meehan and the comic strip “Little Orphan Annie,” by Harold Gray. It is the story of an orphan whose journey to find her parents takes her from the streets of New York City to the home of a billionaire bachelor.


Curry County Fair: Entry minded

Lauretta Newman shows bread cooling, which she plans to enter in the Curry County Fair.

The smell wafting from Lauretta and Ole Newman RV home is heavenly. 

Sweet, fresh bread bakes in the oven and more sits on the counter cooling. Lauretta flips through her notes, looking at what to make next — this is only the beginning.

The Newmans, residents of Brookings-Harbor for more than 30 years, will complete a hefty task this year: entering almost every category at the Curry County Fair. They’ll submit entries to the culinary, hobbycraft, photography, fiber arts, flower and decoration divisions, as they’ve done in the past.


Summer Concerts in the Park: Dixieland Rangers play at Azalea Park bandshell Sunday

Dixieland Rangers rehearse “Pennsylvania 6-5000” at Del Norte Senior Center.

The Dixieland Rangers, led by retired band director Keith Jones, will be performing at 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 23, during the Summer Concerts in the Park series in Azalea Park.

The concert will be in the park’s amphitheater and will include Dixieland and big band tunes.

After Jones retired from teaching high school band in the San Francisco Bay area, he moved to Crescent City where he found few opportunities to perform the music he enjoys — Dixieland and big band, with a little rock ’n’ roll on the side.

“When I came to Crescent City, I was interested in continuous playing, but there was a gap,” Jones said.


Preparing for Raining Cats and Dogs

Earlier this week, members of the Brookings-Harbor Rotary Club were busy making certain that everything is in order for Raining Cats and Dogs.

The fundraising event is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 22, at the Port of Brookings Harbor kite field.
