SLOW CHILDREN: Making a name for themselves

Slow Children will play a rock concert 9 p.m. tonight at the Redwood Theater
The rain pounded the roof of the small, backyard workshop in Brookings, drowning out singer and bass player Caleb Moffit as he talked about the rock band Slow Children.

However, the rain didn’t stand a chance once Caleb and guitarist Bryan Bacci plugged their instruments into the amps, and Kevin Hutman started hammering the drums.

The melodic mix of acoustic, hard rock and alternative music that thundered inside the shop was tight, intense and impressive — the product of three men who have been playing music together since the eighth grade — nearly 15 years.


Redshirts make Christmas merrier

Friday was a red-letter day for the Brookings-Harbor Redshirts, as more than two dozen volunteers delivered 228 packages to the Brookings Post Office.

Although the Redshirts have been mailing packages to the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan on the first and third Fridays of every month since June 2006, the December mailing is always special, because of Christmas, said Redshirts President Frank Muller.

This December was an especially large mailing, requiring approximately $3,200 postage to be paid, Muller said.

Game Theory 101: School revives the art of playground games

Students at Kalmiopsis Elementary School are learning something new this year — playground games.

Over the last few decades, as giant play structures were built in parks and on school playgrounds, children lost the art of the simple playground game. 

So when the massive play structure known as the “big toy” was removed from the Kalmiopsis playground last summer, students had to learn a new way to play. A generation that had relied mostly on chase games and play structures was given balls and jump ropes.
