MDA Car Show raises $4,400

A 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air, owned by Bill and Sue Craft, won a first place best in class award as well as an award from the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

SMITH RIVER — More than 100 cars were on display — a few designed to exceed 200 mph, and many more intended to be driven closer to the speed limit — during the MDA Car Show.

The event gives car buffs a chance to show off their prizes and raises funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). A total of $4,400 was raised for the association. According to Tom Lee, show coordinator for the Curry County Cruisers, registration fees raised $2,300, T-shirt sales totaled $1,010, raffle tickets garnered $800 and a 50/50 drawing brought in $290.

“There are always more donations that come in over the next week or so and more shirts will be sold, also,” Lee said.

For the second time in its 85 years, the Isaac Lee Patterson bridge spanning the Rogue River in Gold Beach will be relighted in an effort to restore pride to one of the “jeweled clasps in a wonderful string of matched pearls,” as the engineer called it in 1932.

To celebrate the lighting of the seven-arch concrete bridge, the county’s Economic Development Office has arranged a Bridge Bash celebration to be held all day and into the night, Sept. 19.

Bringing back the Monarch

A Monarch butterfly rests in its cage at Chetco Community Public Library.

A fun way to teach children about the life cycle, monarch butterflies are a popular sight in both the garden and classroom.  

Recently, however, monarch populations have been threatened, and groups around the nation have become active in trying to revive the species. The Chetco Community Public Library currently has two displays where they have been “raising” the insects, watching the progression from caterpillars to chrysalises, and finally to butterflies.
