2016 princesses vie for Azalea crown


One of five young women will be chosen queen in May

The Azalea Scholarship Pageant board announces the princesses for 2016 are Drew Farmer, Jessie Good, Chelsie Lanphere, Daisy Saphiloff and Taylor Young.

All five princesses are seniors at Brookings-Harbor High School. They are now in training for the Azalea Scholarship Pageant scheduled for May 6 at Brookings Church of the Nazarene. 

A panel of judges will choose one to be crowned queen to reign over the 77th Azalea Festival on Memorial Day weekend.


Wet & Wild

A flooded Miner Creek creates a beautiful waterfall at Secret Beach, where the ocean has waves coming up to the base of the bluffs.

The small sliver of habitat where the ocean meets the shore contains so much raw beauty — sea stacks, crashing waves, arches, dunes, caves and sandy beaches — sometimes it is easy to overlook the hidden gems. 

These places, which make the Southern Oregon Coast is a dramatic and beautiful place to live, are often only noticed after having lived here a season or two.

Samuel Boardman State Park may be one of the most photographed shorelines in Oregon. Visitors and locals can’t pick up an Oregon travel magazine, or read a “Best of Oregon’s nature” article without seeing at least one picture of Natural Bridges or Arch Rock. But the magazines, articles and even Facebook posts don’t prepare the visitor for the dream-like beauty of the trails along the shoreline.  


Final chance to photograph King Tides

It’s the third and final chance in 2015 to catch, and capture, a glimpse of what the effects of rising sea levels will look like on the Oregon Coast. 

The CoastWatch program, in partnership with Oregon Coastal Management Program and the Surfrider Foundation, invites the public to grab cameras and take to the beach during the final King Tide Events happening today (Dec. 23), Thursday and Friday, Dec. 24 and 25.


Community remembers Elmo Williams


An observation of those who spoke about Elmo Williams at his celebration of life Saturday would indicate that the man left as much of a legacy on Brookings as he did in the Hollywood film industry.

Williams, who moved to Brookings in 1983, spent the first 70 years of his life on the move, whether traveling from Oklahoma to Southern California as a teenager in hopes of making a better life, or living somewhere in the world while producing a movie. There is no question that his 32 years in Brookings was probably the longest time he lived in one place.


Community Christmas Concert Saturday

Red Letter Jesus, a band that played last year, will return to the Harbor Performing Arts Center stage to perform among four other groups at Stagelights’ fifth annual Community Christmas Concert Saturday.

Five local acts will perform two hours of holiday music and dance on Saturday, Dec. 19, at the Harbor Performing Arts Center as part of Stagelights’ fifth annual Community Christmas Concert.

The event begins at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:45 p.m. with a suggested donation of $5 per person. All proceeds will benefit Stagelights’ music education and outreach programs.
