Silveria: A passion for ice cream, mentoring

Harbor resident Pat Silveria mentored many teens who worked at her ice cream shop.

Pat Silveria decided to retire from a life of accounting — for one of ice cream.

She and her sister, Willa, wanted to own their own business. It had to be something the area didn’t already have, in a place that was up-and-coming and one through which they could give back to the community.

The answer was ice cream, and the name would be Slugs n’ Stones n’ Ice Cream Cones, a name that piqued the curiosity of their 76-year-old aunt from a list of names Silveria had crafted in her dreams one night.

And the perfect location was — or would become — the Port of Brookings Harbor. 


Musical comedy opens Friday

Lawrence Jameson (Don Jones), left, and Freddy Benson (Matthew Perez), right, work to see who can con Christine Colgate (Karen de Lucca) out of $50,000.

The Chetco Pelican Players present the musical “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” opening at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 20, at the Chetco Playhouse, 1240 Chetco Ave., Brookings.

Based on the 1988 film starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin, “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” centers on two con men living on the French Riviera. The first is the suave and sophisticated Lawrence Jameson (Don Jones) who makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Lawrence has the secretive assistance of French Police Chief Andre Thibault (Edgar Perez). The other grifter, a small-time crook named Freddy Benson (Matthew Perez), more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother’s failing health.



Members of the Brookings-Harbor High School class of 2014 celebrate the completion of their basic education at Saturday’s graduation ceremony.

Saturday may have been free fishing day in Oregon, but during the 2014 Brookings-Harbor High School commencement exercises, it was free fishing gear day for outgoing Principal Larry Martindale.

As each of the 111 graduates walked across a horseshoe-shaped stage to receive their diploma folder and congratulations by school officials, they handed Martindale a fishing item — the first item being a tackle box, the last a Spider-Man toy fishing pole.

Once all the students walked across the stage, District Superintendent Brian Hodge declared the class as graduates, resulting in horns blowing, Silly String sprayed, confetti launched and hats thrown into the air.


Tree grower presents talk on champion redwoods

Cloning trees to preserve a species will be the topic of a talk to take place during the next Brookings-Harbor Garden Club meeting.
