UnReal Estate open house at library

Spectators look over Marianna Wilkenson’s farmhouse at Chetco Community Public Library. The Pilot/Arwyn Rice
3 bdrm, 1 ba, 2-story farmhouse with finished attic. Fully furnished, big wraparound porch to relax on warm summer evenings. Farm stand, large garden, tractor storage, chicken coop and animal pens included. Pets and farm animals OK.

Marianna Wilkenson’s  two-story farmhouse is like something out of an old Lassie movie.

The classic Midwestern style farmhouse is full of 1940s era  furniture, features a wide porch with comfortable chairs and the property includes a small vegetable stand for Wilkenson’s extensive garden.



For Brookings couple, cake takes on life of its own

This cake has been featured on television, the Internet and People magazine.
It’s been more than two years since Suzanne Williams and her husband Curtis left Little Rock, Ark., for a new home in Brookings.

After 18 years at the same office, there was a going-away party for Suzanne at the Shelter Insurance Co. in Little Rock.

It was an emotional day, recalls Suzanne, because she was up all night finishing work at home to bring back to the office, then walked into a surprise party.


Introducing the Azalea Court for 2010

Five young women have been selected for the 2010 Azalea Court by the Azalea Festival Scholarship Pageant Board.

The princesses for the 2010 court are Kelly Aldrich, Shalynn Doan, Ashley Lueckfeld, Alycia Jacobson and Sarah Lyne Miller. All are seniors at Brookings-Harbor High School.

The court members will begin training for their duties in January, beginning with a speech craft course from the Toastmasters Club.


Journey of the Crab

From the Pacific Ocean to the dinner platter, Dungeness crab is in demand, but as close to a fishing port as Brookings is, buying crab at a Brookings grocery store may not mean getting fresh Brookings Harbor crab.

The trip for the crab is not as simple as a quick drive from the docks to the fish counter at the local grocery store.


Keeping music alive in the schools

The Brookings-Harbor High School Concert Choir rehearses for a recent concert.
Posted on the wall of the music room at Brookings-Harbor High School is a tiny sign that reads “Don’t die with the music still in you.”

Despite disruptions in staffing and budgeting, the music programs at BHHS, Azalea Middle School and Kalmiopsis Elementary School are still trying to help students give that inner music a voice.

“Music expresses your feelings,” says Kalmiopsis fifth-grader Nicholas Nishioka. “It can make you happy or make you feel sad.”
