Celebration of art and music

Christina Olsen is the featured artist at the Manley Arts Center.

Spring has sprung, and art will be in full bloom for the Brookings Second Saturday Art Walk from 3 to 6 p.m. today (April 11).

In addition, there will be live music and several special events, all featured at various locations in the downtown area of Brookings.


Little Shop of Horrors continues this weekend

Josiah Foribis (Seymour) and Mike Vest (shopkeeper) extol the virtues of their famous singing plant.

The Chetco Pelican Players staged version of the popular musical “Little Shop of Horrors” continues with a 7 p.m. show today (April 11) and a 2 p.m. matinee Sunday at the Chetco Playhouse, 1240 Chetco Ave., Brookings. 


Deputies nab dangerous driver

Curry County Sheriff’s deputies arrested two Klamath Falls men, one on drug charges and another on an outstanding warrant, after an incident in which their truck went over the center line on Highway 101 and struck another vehicle Tuesday morning.

According to Lt. Mick Espinoza, at 7:38 a.m., Tony Voudy of Brookings called 911 to say that, while driving northbound in the Pistol River area, a black Ford Ranger drifted over the center line of the road and sideswiped his vehicle, nearly hitting him head-on and breaking the side mirrors off both vehicles.

The Ranger continued south without stopping and Voudy turned around to follow it.


Complaints prompt city to revisit sign code

The city of Brookings will reexamine its sign code — for the 14th time since 1971 — after new-business owners recently expressed frustration about the rules surrounding flags, banners and other advertising tools allowed and not allowed in town.

The sign section of the city’s municipal code has been brought under scrutiny since some business owners have been told they are in violation of the code for placing “feather” flags in rights-of-ways, merchandise on sidewalks and, in the case of the new Dollar General store at the north end of town, a plethora of grand-opening signs that soon slumped on their poles in the wind.


Co-op: Electric bill rate hike coming

Warm winter temperatures — meaning less electricity used for heating — and a hike in wholesale electricity costs will likely result in a 9-percent spike in electric bills beginning in July, Coos-Curry Electric Cooperative (CCEC) announced late last week.

It is likely consumers will see an additional 3-percent increase next January.

The co-op will hold three town hall meetings in Curry County to discuss the co-op’s financial outlook, broader policy issues that affect the price of wholesale power and the price CCEC members pay for their electricity.
