The shed on Oak Street can’t be missed – it’s decorated on three sides with colorful artwork.

Who is this whimsical artist who desires her shed to be more than a plain old building? Shawntisha Bailey.

It’s not just sheds – Shawntisha leaves an artistic imprint on everything she touches: light switch covers, outlet covers, ceramic tiles, pens, and the like.

Recently she left an artistic imprint upon Curry County: She won first-place in the 10- to 17-year-old talent contest at the Curry County Fair and won a first place ribbon for all four of her painting entries.


A wet and wild Ducky Derby

Rain did not stop die-hard fans of the 2010 Wild Rivers Ducky Derby from seeing who would be the lucky winner of a $2,600 prize.

All together, Saturday’s Rotary Club of Brookings-Harbor event raised more than $16,000 for the community, with nearly $6,000 going to nonprofit organizations that participated in adopting out ducks, each representing a chance in the third-annual raffle.



"You saw what?!”

In my two years working for the Curry Coastal Pilot, I thought I had seen it all.

With Brookings located on Highway 101 – along one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world – it is inevitable that we get regular visitors stopping by while they are pursuing some kind of life-changing trip.

Summers in Brookings bring cyclists by the hundreds, riding the coast from Canada to Mexico. Car clubs with vehicles from Model Ts to Ferraris drive through almost daily. Hikers and transients,  traveling musicians and circuses have all passed by the Pilot’s front-row location.


Remembering 9/11

About 50 veterans and citizens turned out for a 9/11 memorial concert and candle lighting ceremony at Azalea Park Saturday night.

The turnout was somewhat disappointing, said Brookings-Harbor Red Shirts President Frank Muller.

“I would have liked to see more people,” Muller said.

However, the generosity of the people more than made up for it.


The coast cares

SMITH RIVER, Calif. – Car buffs gathered to see a slew of classic cars Labor Day weekend for the annual The Coast Cares MDA Car Show at Lucky 7 Casino.

The show, hosted by the Curry County Cruisers car club, raised nearly $4,500, for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), said Tom Lee, club president.

Money raised at the car show was added to the pot collected during the KTVL telethon in Medford. The station, which aired the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon in Las Vegas, raised nearly $183,000 in the Northern California/ Southwestern Oregon region, according to the KTVL website.
