Ammo inspires art

Sky Peters applies a coat of urethane to a sign she made in the backyard of her Klamath Falls home.

Sky and Jason Peters were looking for a hobby they could do together — preferably in the garage while he was reloading ammunition and when their kids were asleep.

She started by making jewelry from the rejected casings of bullets he couldn’t use.

And then her mother-in-law, an avid yard-saler, found an old window, with flaking paint and rusted hardware.

Sky’s imagination was piqued, and she was off, having made between 75 to 100 paintings in the past two years since she first put acrylic paint to glass.


A birthday celebration


More than 150 people celebrated the 240th birthday of the U.S. Marine Corps during a ball Saturday at the Tolowa Event Center at Lucky 7 Casino in Smith River.

The event was hosted by the Calvin Murphy Detachment 578 of the U.S. Marine Corps League.

During the event — which included dinner, a silent auction, live music and dancing — traditional ceremonies were held, including cutting the birthday cake with a sword and honoring dignitaries, whether present or not.


Stained glass

Valarie Schmidter fits pieces of glass together to create patterns.

Elsie Longcor never gave a second thought to dabbling in stained glass — until her husband bought her a gift certificate to take a class.

“I liked it so much, I kept doing it,” the Brookings woman said. “I just love to create.”

That was in 1974.

Later, she taught 4-H kids the art, and then her daughter, Valarie Schmidter, when she was 9.

For her, it’s a way to relieve stress.
