Second Saturday Art Walk today (Sept. 13)


1950s concert, car show, contests at Azalea Park Sunday


The Hot Rods will performs hits from the 1950s and early 60s.

Shine up that ’57 Chevy, put on your poodle skirt or don that leather jacket. It’s time to celebrate the golden age of rock and roll with The Hot Rods Band, in concert at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 14, at the Azalea Park bandshell.

The free show, the final in the American Music Festival’s summer concert series, will also feature a car show and hula hoop and 1950s fashion contests.


Barbecue raises $5,500

Coos Forest Protective Association firefighter Eric Hamner is served a chicken dinner by 4-H members.

Attendance was down from previous years, but the Winchuck Volunteers annual chicken barbecue and auction still netted about $5,500 for the Winchuck Rural Fire Department.

“The attendance and, therefore, financials were lower then last year,” said Fire Chief Bill Hauer. “We feel this was because the weather was on the chilly side.”

Fog shrouded the coastline and all they way up to the fire hall, four miles upriver from Highway 101. A person driving east would finally see the sun at the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest boundary.


Beer, wine, art and music all wrapped together

Les Stansell entertains on guitar.

More than 1,200 people visited the seventh annual Gold Beach Brew and Art Festival, which took up two buildings and the courtyard at the Event Center on the Beach on Saturday.

The event offered participants more than 50 microbrew crafted beers and wines — some from as far away as Texas — as well as art, music and food. 


Tourist season over?

Barbara Ciaramella loves living on America’s Wild Rivers Coast and is enthusiastic about getting people to come and see the area.

But first, she must find ways to get people to stop by the Crissey Field State Park Oregon Welcome Center, where she is the new manager.

Ciaramella moved to Brookings two years ago from Reno, Nevada, after making the area a regular vacation destination for eight years.

She grew up in the San Francisco Bay area and, between there and Reno, has worked in the tourism business for 25 years, either as a tour wholesaler or owning a travel agency.

After she moved to Brookings, she quickly became active in the community, volunteering on the Brookings Tourism Board and being a member of the Cape Ferrelo Fire Department board of directors.
