2015 Graduation: Brookings-Harbor High School

Brookings-Harbor High School graduates celebrate at end of ceremony.

The graduation ceremony for the Brookings-Harbor High School Class of 2015 was full of laughter, celebration — and a hint of nostalgia.

Keeping it light even in the midst of celebrating a major milestone, the 93 graduating students walked from Kalmiopsis Elementary School to the football field and past their proud teachers and parents, their hats personalized with glitter, paint and accessories. Carrying blue and yellow balloons, as they reached the staging area for the processional, they released the balloons into the air.

Lighthouse enthusiast Guy Towers releases book

It took 10 years to build, saw the death of five keepers and one construction worker, and warned sailors away from the dreaded Dragon Rocks of St. George Reef for nearly a century.

Visiting the beacon atop Northwest Seal Rock 6 miles off the coast may not be an option currently, but folks will soon be able to explore the lighthouse’s history in a new book from the “Images of America” series.

“Images of America: St. George Reef Lighthouse” is written by Guy Towers, who founded the St. George Lighthouse Preservation Society in 1986, and is distributed by Arcadia Publishing, which has published hundreds of pictorial history books.


The final class

Janeen Vick offers summer art camp one last time

Janeen Vick remembers the moment she realized why art was important to her.

“I’ve been an artist since I was a kid,” Vick said. “In high school, I  did an oil painting, and a lady wanted to buy it for $500.”

She laughed, recalling how much money that seemed to her at that age. 

“But my parents said ‘No’ — they liked the painting, and said it wasn’t for commercial gain. I realized art is for enjoyment, not gain. Painting for yourself — seeing the colors mix on the paper — that’s a one-time experience, for your own joy. And if someone else likes it, that’s great. But it’s more for your own enjoyment. It’s a fun process. That’s why I paint.”
