Page Mountain’s Sledding Hill

It’s more than an hour’s drive to get there, and you may need chains, but for plenty of coast residents, Page Mountain SnoPark is their sledding hill.

Or snowboarding slope. Or inner-tubing haven. Or the place to access cross-country skiing and snowmobiling trails.

The facility is about 15 miles east of O’Brien, Ore., that little town with the vintage police car parked alongside U.S. Highway 199.

The Bruins’ most successful team is going for a fourth  consecutive regional championship, and little stands in its way.

The Brookings-Harbor High School Knowledge Bowl team continued to dominate the competition at home Wednesday at the Banana Belt Invitational, beating teams from Marshfield High School (Coos Bay) and  Oakland High School.

“The A team kinda demolished everyone,” B team Captain Megan Barries said.

Barries should know; the two Bruin squads met up for the first time in competition, and the A team won, 160-90, to improve the A team’s record to 12-1.


Setting the goal

People with a desire to raise funds to fight cancer were whoopin’ it up at the Best Western Beachfront Inn last Saturday during the 2011 Curry Relay for Life Kickoff in anticipation of a red-hot event this year.

With approximately 70  participants in attendance, planners said they are looking forward to the support for this year’s relay.

The meeting room, decorated with colorful balloons, was filled with energy, laughter, applause and music. In addition, there was wine tasting, finger foods and candies.


Locals participate in making film

It might be called a love affair within a love affair – a couple’s love for each other and a mutual love of filmmaking, which, with a little help, may take them to the Sundance Film Festival later this month.

Tony and Terri-Lynn Kalhagen of Makai Ohana Productions in Nesika Beach fell in love 24 years ago when, as teenagers, they met at a club in Hawaii.

Terri-Lynn said in a July 2007 article in the Curry Coastal Pilot, “…and we’re as much in love now as we were 20 years ago.” This week she told the Pilot it’s still true today.


15-year-old leads workshop

Business plans of 13-year-old eighth graders often fall short of expectations, especially when they include grandiloquent dreams of running a thriving business with profit enough to finance a costly degree in marine biology.

However, one young Brookings student is more than fulfilling his plans to do just that, and is not only continuing to expand his birdhouse building business, but is even sharing his expertise with others.

Jesse Orozco, 15, first came to the attention of employees at the Curry Coastal Pilot in September 2008, when he came in to place an ad for his birdhouses and received orders for 20, right on the spot.
