2014: No shortage of live music

Second Bridge performed for a Stagelights outdoor concert in Cape Ferrelo.

Lovers of music should not be bored as live performances are in abundance in Curry and Del Norte counties.

Musical associations within the Brookings zip code alone presented more than 35 concerts to the community during 2014 — not counting performances in bars, pubs, libraries, churches and other venues.



Princesses chosen: One will be crowned queen in May

The Azalea Pageant board has selected five girls to serve as Azalea Princesses for 2015 — Adelaide Fitzgerald, Iva Hart, Brittney Lamar, Kimberly Medina and Courtney Watwood.

During the next four months, the girls will be learning how to walk on the runway, and to develop their talent, etiquette and public speaking skills. According to Gordon Clay of Chetco Chatterers Toastmasters club, the Speechcraft workshops will begin the week of Jan. 12 and continue for six weeks.

The preparation will culminate in the Azalea Scholarship Pageant scheduled in early May. There, one will be crowned queen and reign over the annual Azalea Festival scheduled for Memorial Day weekend.


Parties, outdoor events ring in the new year

Whether looking to party into the new year or walk off a few of holiday pounds, people won’t have trouble finding occasions to do so today (Dec. 31) and New Year’s Day (Jan. 1).

Curry and Del Norte counties will have two concerts tonight, both featuring local bands. Residents will then be able to get outside the following day with a first day hike or paddling trip in Humboldt County as well as a first day bike ride in Brookings.

New teacher brings insight to BHHS

Ibrahim Mesanovic, a Bosnian immigrant, is among the new teachers at Brookings-Harbor High School.

Sitting in his classroom at Brookings-Harbor High School, Ibrahim Mesanovic could be doing any number of jobs right now.

He’s happy to be at this one.

The new BHHS chemistry, physics and physical science teacher moved to Brookings this fall. Like some of his colleagues, he’s not native to Oregon. Unlike many others, his arrival in the state was the result of fleeing from a war-torn home country.
