Crocheted animals keep Duarte busy

Ginger Duarte is covered in her creations, which also covers much of the available space in her home.

Ginger Duarte is in her house, surrounded by pigs and elephants and octopi and owls. Chickens roost on a counter, next to fat round fish, a round-eyed monkey and a five-segmented caterpillar — all of which she made by hand, stitch by crocheted stitch.

“I’ve always liked my owls,” she said when trying to pick a favorite. “But I like my chickens, and ‘Snake,’ and the trees. And my alien. And the pink elephant. Everyone, in their lifetime, should see at least one pink elephant.”

She will be among the artisans at the annual Community Christmas Bazaar, Nov. 15, at the Azalea Middle and Brookings-Harbor High schools.


Fashions for funds

The fashion show, held at the Brookings Elks Lodge, was emceed by Chere Wier, owner of the boutique, who has been helping out with the fashion show since its inception 10 years ago.

Abundant rains on America’s Wild Rivers Coast have caused varieties of fungi, or mushrooms, to pop up everywhere.

Almost all are pleasing to the eye. Some make a delicious meal while others can be deadly.

Knowing the difference can save a life for those who enjoy picking mushrooms from the wild.

Mushrooms aficionados will have the opportunity to learn during workshops scheduled in November.


It’s time: Sponsors, volunteers needed to make annual event happen

Today is the first day of November and by the end of the month, Azalea Park will be colorfully illuminated by Nature’s Coastal Holiday light show.

But before any of that can happen, help is needed not only from volunteers to set up the lights, but from sponsors to help pay the cost of the event, according to Bryan Tillung, event organizer.

Not only has planning taken place for several months, but much work has been done to make this 18th annual event possible.
