Popular pianist Frank Wiens will be featured at the next Brookings-Harbor Friends of Music concert, which will be at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 25.
His program will include music by Beethoven, Schumann, Debussy, Chopin and Rachmaninov. It represents a mix of works that have been favorites of Wiens for many years, with one work that is new for him.
Vegetables are planted atop straw bails in the community garden next to St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Brookings. The garden also sports a greenhouse for growing less hardy produce.
Vicar Bernie Lindley, and a small group of volunteers blessed the new greenhouse — part of the St. Timothy’s Gardenshare — behind St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Brookings on Saturday.
“There is no reason anybody should go hungry,” said Scott Clapson, the man responsible for designing the garden. “This garden is for anyone who has a need for food, anyone in the community. We would like to have a few dedicated people out here tending the garden and see others feel free to come and pick what they need.”
On St. Patrick’s Day 2013 Lindley took Clapson to the small, overgrown flag lot next to the church and told him that he would like to put a community garden there.
Volunteers pour freshly-pressed cider through a filter before the juice is put into jugs to be taken home.
It was a bumper crop of people who showed up for the annual Cider on Sunday at the Chetco Valley Historical Society museum in Harbor.
Bushel upon bushel of apples were brought to the event to be squeezed into cider on antique cider presses.
Three presses — two operated by hand and one powered by an electric motor — were working nonstop, with many people taking home as many as five gallon-sized jugs filled with the freshly-squeeze and filtered cider.
