Cider on Sunday

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.


Author signs books Saturday in Gold Beach

GOLD BEACH — Outdoors journalist and author Bonnie Henderson will offer an illustrated presentation about the history of the Oregon Coast Trail at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 17, at Gold Beach Books.

The trail incorporates more than 200 miles of sandy beach linked by footpaths over headlands and boat shuttles across bays. It was first conceived by a University of Oregon geographer in 1959 and was declared “hikeable” in 1988. 


Stretching the imagination

A painting by Orphie Barella of a Gerber daisy is on display at Fog & Fine Art Gallery.

Today’s (Oct. 10) Second Saturday Art Walk was planned to stretch the imagination of what is often thought of as art media.

Generally, when people think of art, oil paints, acrylics, watercolors and pastels are what come to mind. But this Art Walk, scheduled from 3 to 6 p.m., illustrates that art can be created from just about anything. 


Raising funds for a carousel

Bruce Ellis announces events on the stage during the Bands, Brews and BBQ festival fundraiser for A Carousel for Brookings.

Building a working carousel in Azalea Park near KidTown came a bit closer to reality Saturday during the Bands, Brews and BBQ festival at the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Festival organizer Bruce Ellis said $947 were raised from vendor fees. Bud Halliday, who has been spearheading the project, had a booth where “A Carousel for Brookings” T-shirts and other memorabilia was sold, raising even more money.
