A day for salmon

Brookings commercial fishing boat captain Kyle Berger spent Tuesday off the coast of Brookings catching salmon, most weighing 10 to 12 pounds each. 

Berger, 32, who owns the Beverly B fishing vessel, has been a commercial fisherman for 10 years. He purchased the boat in 2014.

“Fishing for a living is my life. I do it because it’s what I love to do,” he said. “I like to be out on the open sea, catching salmon or tuna in the summer. In the winter, I’m chasing after Dungeness crab.”

Berger said he’s been waiting many years to be the captain of his own vessel.

“What an experience it is to be captain of a commercial fishing vessel. I never thought I would have gotten this opportunity,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to catching more fish this summer, with lots of laughs and having a good time. I hope that crab season treats us all very generously, because we all need it.”


A victory in the battle

People held candles during a luminaria ceremony honoring cancer survivors and those who lost the battle.

The weekend’s Curry County Relay For Life exceeded all expectations and surpassed its goals by raising $37,000 to help fight cancer.

The goal was $35,000.

According to Bonnie Ell, American Cancer Society community manager, approximately 400 attended the event that consisted of 13 teams raising funds.

The team that raised the most money from events held since January, was Gardenheir’s Gang, which raised $6,259. 


The adventure ends for children’s musical with a Twist

Three shows remain for the children’s production of “The Musical Adventures of Oliver Twist Jr.”

“The Musical Adventures of Oliver Twist Jr.” continues in the Harbor Performing Arts Center for the final three performances.

The Brookings Harbor Community Theater production will be staged at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, July 16 and 17, and 2 p.m. Saturday, July 18. 

As the play begins, the audience finds Oliver (Charlie Willis-Blunt) and the other workhouse children toiling away under the tyrannical hand of Workhouse Master Mr. Bumble (Brian Walker).

John Hawthorne was the big winner in the 18th annual chili cookoff July 4 at the Port of Brookings Harbor boardwalk.

Hawthorne was the winner of the Judge’s Choice and People’s Choice award for his simple chili recipe with cornbread mixed in.

Hawthorne did not attend the cookoff and had someone else serve his winning chili. His wife, Paulie Hawthorne, also a contestant, accepted the awards on his behalf. The Hawthornes donated their winnings to Oasis Shelter Home, sponsor of the event.
