Firefighters Honored

Harbor volunteer firefighters
The Harbor Rural Volunteer Fire Department responded to 257 emergency and assistance calls in 2010.

Saturday’s call was different. Harbor’s volunteer firefighters were called to Smith River for an awards banquet, to thank the members for their service.

“It’s a chance to get away, sit down and have a good connection,” Fire Chief John Brazil said.


Northcoast Marine Mammal Center's vision

Construction will continue at the Northcoast Marine Mammal Center for the next few months.
The sounds of construction will be audible for the next few months at the Northcoast Marine Mammal Center while workers give the facility a face-lift.

And if center officials get their wish, a much bigger construction project could be in the works.

Dr. Dennis Wood, center founder and veterinarian, said the current construction work will bring animal enclosures up to code, helping the center better house ocean creatures.


This guy is a Big Loser!

Brookings Church of the Nazarene Pastor Rick Green holds 51 pounds of potatoes to show the amount of weight he lost in six months. The Pilot/Marge Woodfin
Members of Brookings Nazarene Church have been bragging about the 51 pounds shed by their pastor, Rick Green, in an effort to raise money to build a community center.

“It was the craziest thing I’ve ever done in my life,” Green told the Pilot.

He said it wasn’t losing the weight that was crazy, but the fact that he announced it in a sermon last July. He said it was definitely a strange sermon topic, especially from a man who’d never shown an interest in diet or exercise.


Good Deeds

Marilyn Kornell, wife of Ray “Piano Man” Kornell, is a “little Mother Teresa,” according to her neighbor of 12 years, “Uncle” Al Capilla, 77.

“She’s always helping people, never stops,” Capilla said, “even though she’s only about 80 pounds, soaking wet – and 83 years old.”

He said she frequently drops by to help him around the house, and phones daily to check on him, since he lives alone and has health problems.
