There’s good news too, if you pay attention

 

After watching the late-night newscasts, checking major news websites and reading the Curry Coastal Pilot, we understand how easy it is to think that everything is doom and gloom. It is, unfortunately, human nature to be more attracted to bad news.

However, as the holidays approach, there is no end to good news in the Pilot, if you’re looking for it. Here are some reminders about the encouraging events and news that we’ve reported in the past few weeks.

 

•There were stories about the SWOCC’s new Brooking college campus, the Emblem Club’s fashion show fundraiser, the Marine Corp. League’s annual ball and salute to local veterans, and the rescue of Brookings youngster Bryce Bond and his subsequent recovery.

•The Cape Ferrelo Fire Department’s annual Fish Fry attracted standing-room-only crowds, and raised $6,200 for the fire department’s budget.

•The Brookings-Harbor Redshirts mailed 137 packages to military personnel in it’s monthly mailing, this one in time for holiday delivery in Iraq and Afghanistan.

•Volunteer crews turned out in force to help string more than 450,000 lights in Azalea Park for the annual Nature’s Coastal Holiday display that opens tonight.

•There are lots of efforts – though never enough – to provide help for those in need over the holidays, including food drives, coat drives and gift drives. For example, an estimated 400 food baskets were handed out for Thanksgiving through the Outreach Gospel Mission.

And to top it all off, recent weeks have brought a great salmon season for local fishermen, as well as a number of sunny days with colorful sunsets to enjoy.

Yes, some of the news is bad, and it catches our attention. But there’s lots of good news out there, too!
