The third annual Barnacle Ball danced into the bayou Saturday night, coming away with more than $18,000 in funding for the KASPER program.

That was before the effort put into the ball attracted an outside gift: $5,000 donated by someone who simply heard about the benefit for the Kids’ After School Program of Education and Recreation.

“I had tears in my eyes,” said KASPER board member Darryn Ballance, who was the connection to the additional $5,000. The donors, Lou and Shelly Levigne, are clients of her father’s interior design business in the San Francisco area.

The Brookings-Harbor High School Bruin mural is back – and bigger than ever.

The mural of a roaring grizzly bear, painted by Brookings muralist Kolleen Stafford, reappeared just in time for Homecoming this week.

The Homecoming connection wasn’t intentional, Stafford said, but a happy coincidence.

The mural is at least twice as large as the previous one, covering almost the entire height between the gymnasium doors and the roof.

The Bruins have spirit, yes they do!

The Brookings-Harbor High School Bruins kicked-off Spirit Week with Camo Day, where military-style camouflage wearers outnumbered those sporting hunting-type camouflage.

However, the hunter camp had the last laugh when woodland-pattern-wearing freshman Tyler Marrington beat out military clad senior Meredith Horel in the final round of the lunchtime game of musical chairs.

The Brookings-Harbor Oktoberfest celebration has been in full swing since Wednesday, with special movies at the Redwood Theater, crafts for children at the Chetco Community Library, a concert at Trinity Lutheran Church, and other activities, but today (Oct. 9) is the frosting on the cake — the wedding.

Beginning at 11 a.m. at the Azalea Park bandshell, there will be musical entertainment and the introductions of the wedding participants, including the royal family and the bride and groom, Prinz Ludwig and Prinzess Therese, followed at noon by the wedding ceremony, in the Capella by the Sea.

Retired Hollywood filmmaker Elmo Williams of Brookings spent a better part of a lifetime producing movies, but after 97 years, he has finally produced a play – and it was, perhaps, his finest work.

The Chetco Pelican Players’ production of “The Corner Pocket,” written by Williams and directed by Tommy Jones, is a warmhearted story about dealing with aging. It involves a group of men who gather at a club called The Corner Pocket. There they look back on their lives. Unfortunately, these guys who discuss the philosophy of life have also decided that no women are allowed in their club.
