BHHS track and field sends 9 student-athletes to state championship

The Brookings-Harbor High School track and field team nabbed four league titles in a feverishly contested 4A-3 Far West League Championship meet this past Friday and Saturday at Siuslaw High School.

The victories not only mean a league championship but also earn athletes the right to compete at the OSAA 4A State Championships beginning Friday at Hayward Field on the University of Oregon campus.


Inspiration and perspiration

Aerobics instructor Mary Whitaker (second from left) conducts an aerobics class at Star of the Sea church on Wednesday. Whitaker has been teaching aerobics in the Brookings-Harbor area for 30 years.

Mary Whitaker is a beloved aerobics instructor who has been teaching fitness at the local branch of Southwestern Oregon Community College for more than a quarter-century. That’s why, when she informed her students that she was retiring, they became distraught and upset, fearing their favorite instructor would no longer be there to teach them. Luckily for her students, Mary meant she is retiring from her position of Curry First Stop Representative at SWOCC after nearly 25-years. She has no plans to quit teaching aerobics anytime soon.

KMZ anglers score salmon on opening day

Opening day of salmon season was good to several anglers, including Don Williams of Brookings who caught this 18-pound Chinook off of House Rock. Stephanie Szewc of Grants Pass also caught this 50-pound Pacific Halibut on the same day. Both anglers were ocean fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Northern California and Southern Oregon anglers fishing out of all three ports in the Klamath Management Zone (the KMZ) caught Chinook salmon of prodigious proportions on the opening day of salmon season in the ocean on Saturday, May 10. The Kong-sized kings ranged from 15 to 27 pounds, which bodes well for the rest of the season, when Chinook really put on the feedbag, adding 2 pounds or more weight a month.

Although only three Chinook were reportedly caught out of the Port of Brookings Harbor on the opener, the fishing continued to get better during the week with limits or near-limits being common on Tuesday.

For so many children in this country, organized sports is simply not an option. The costs of registration, travel and equipment mean that many a child won’t have the opportunity to participate in an organized league and learn the valuable life lessons of teamwork, camaraderie and selflessness that youth sports teach. The Brookings-Harbor Shoe Exchange, a program that takes donations of used shoes to be dispersed to any in need, aims to make sure that every kid has the opportunity to play.
