The Brookings-Harbor High School Bruins football team is set to open the football season on Friday at Phoenix High School and are working hard at one of Head Coach Eric Sullivan’s goals — get better every day.

“My goals are more for every day,” Sullivan said. “I’m a new coach and we’re learning new systems, so my goals are to get better every day. We want to win a league title and go to state but in order to achieve those goals we have to get better every day.”

When the Gold Beach High School (GBHS) football team steps onto the green grass of their home turf — Jay Johnson Stadium — Friday evening for a pre season test against Salem Acadamy, look closely, you might see some swagger.

It’s not arrogance in that walk, it’s measured confidence.

Salmon fishing in the ocean up and down the coast of Northern California and Southern Oregon this year has given anglers enough adrenaline rushes to light up the city of Brookings for a year.

Generally speaking, late August and early September are very good months to be fishing from Eureka, Calif., up to Winchester Bay in Reedsport, not only in the ocean, but also in the some of the rivers as well. This year has been no exception.

Four courses, four hours
August 23, 2013 06:35 pm


The sun hadn’t broken over the tops of the hills surrounding Salmon Run golf course when a hand-picked foursome teed off of on the first hole at the beginning of what would be the longest day of golf ever. 

The challenge was to play all four courses — Salmon Run golf course, Kings Valley Golf Course, Del Norte Golf Course and Cedar Bend Golf Club — within an hour’s drive of Brookings in one day.

A hearty group of golfers including Salmon Run General Manager Ed Murdock, Brookings-Harbor High School baseball coach Keith Wallin, Salmon Run Men’s Club member Mike Gross and Curry Coastal Pilot Sports Editor Jef Hatch undertook the challenge and started the first round at Salmon Run at 6 a.m. Wednesday morning.

With seven returning seniors lacing up cleats and taking to the pitch on any given Tuesday or Thursday, the 2013 squad may have the keys necessary to make its goals a reality.

Sports cleats are unique in the world of shoes. Typically only usable on a specific type of field for a specific sport, they get used more sporadically than a pair of tap shoes.

For adults, whose shoe sizes don’t change much after purchasing a pair of cleats, it doesn’t matter that they only use cleats once a week for two months a year.

Last week anglers fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor struggled to get salmon to bite in the ocean; nevertheless, salmon are still coming to the fillet tables every day.

Trolling whole herring and whole anchovies have been the two hottest fishing methods, with green label herring edging out anchovies over 50 percent of the time last week.
