An e-mail from Janet Pretti, dean of the Curry County campus, noted that the unusual fundraising event “cleared almost $3,000, plus some promised additional pledges‚ to be added to the building fund for the new campus of Southwestern Oregon Community College on property near Lone Ranch Beach.

History came alive in the Redwood Theater as storytellers shared three different views of the “good old days” or “bad old days” of Curry County.

More than 100 concertgoers at the school auditorium were treated to a taste of the Sea Breeze’s new style, featuring a saxophone solo and accompaniment by Sea Breeze member Liz Lindley.

When Eric RuBright looks out his front door there is no lawn, no trees – except in the distance – and no street or driveway.

“The Pacific Ocean is my yard,” RuBright said.

RuBright is one of a small group of people currently living on boats at the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Since the port decided to allow “liveaboards” a few years ago, dozens of people have stepped forward to take advantage of the offer.
