Sea View Senior Living Community, the new 135-unit retirement facility on Gerlach Lane at Highway 101, is ready to open June 1, right on target, and the first 42 residents are scheduled to begin moving in.

The complex includes 45 independent living apartments, 55 assisted living apartments and accommodations for 35 residents with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

Sea View executive director Jim Fuller and his wife, Nelda Fuller, the business office manager, and staff of 50 look forward to welcoming and serving the more than 135 retirees who will be residents when the facility is fully occupied.


Swart opens Snowdog, an eclectic gift shop in Brookings

A visitor to Snowdog, Diane Swart’s eclectic gift shop at 1105 Chetco Ave., will be greeted by two magnificent Siberian huskies, no doubt the reason for the shop’s name. A visitor need not worry about being greeted too enthusiastically. The dogs don’t jump up, bark, or try to lick hands. Mishka and Nukka are calm, quiet, unobtrusive, and beautiful.

Swart, who described her shop as filled with “primitive country antiques and collectibles, a bit of new a bit of old,” said she chose the huskies because, “I wanted dogs that wanted to exercise with me, and I surely got that. They’re a lot of fun.”

New name results from life changes

Hunger Stop on Chetco Avenue just north of Fifth Street, with its new name, is inviting those who are hungry to stop, with a promise that they will leave satisfied.

The restaurant was originally named Boogie Board Bagels when Keffe and Theresa Dillon purchased the business from Shane and Laura Alcorn in 2006.

The name was appropriate at the time when the Dillons purchased the business  because bagels were the major draw.


Yantis marks 30 years at Chetco Pharmacy and Gifts

Talk about dependable and steady, last month marked 30 years in the same career and location for Tim Yantis, as pharmacist to owner of Chetco Pharmacy and Gifts. 

“It’s been a nice ride,” Yantis said recently, adding, “Maybe one of these days I’ll retire.”

In addition to the growing business in Brookings, Yantis purchased Gold Beach Pharmacy in December 2009. “I’d been going by it for years and years, and I just thought, ‘Let’s get that store,’” he said.


Business owner keeps busy creating glass art

Ruth Stoner, proprietor of Glassic Designs, 1105 D Chetco Ave., has a small bathtub size kiln that she keeps busy slumping, shaping, and draping glass of all sizes, colors and shapes.

Ruth and her husband John moved to Brookings in November last year. She said she came to Brookings from the mountains of Colorado when John, a mental health coordinator, said he had been thinking about making a move and he wanted to live in a small town by the ocean.

After a bit of investigating, they decided to take a look at the Oregon Coast. “We came to look in May, and we liked it,” she said. “He was offered a job and we moved in November.”

Chefs open Italian steak house in Harbor

Jerry Brown and Henry Colangelo are singing “We’re back in the business again,” as they greet new and old clients at the recently-opened Smugglers Italian Bistro in the English Village on Highway 101 at Hoffeldt Lane.

After 10 years operating his Smuggler’s Cove Restaurant at the Port of Brookings Harbor, Brown said, “It’s a change of location and I’m downsizing a bit.”

Chef Colangelo, former owner of the Italian Cowboy Restaurant in Brookings, returned to Brookings just in time to help Brown open the new Italian steak house.
