Riding donkeys for dollars

Players from Brookings-Harbor first responders and Pelican Bay State Prison staff compete in Sunday's Chetco Shrine Club Donkey Baseball Game at Brookings-Harbor High School.

This past Sunday at Brookings-Harbor High School a sight was seen that would make a casual passerby contract a case of whiplash due to an extreme double-take: donkeys playing baseball.

When I first heard that our local community hosted such an event I had to see it for myself. Sure, I’ve seen boxing kangaroos and paintings of dogs playing poker but to my knowledge, I did not know of any four-legged animal that could lay down a sac bunt or turn a double play. I had to see it to believe it.


Pigskin Pick’em Week 1 Winner: Diane Moffit

Diane Moffit

Results are in for the first week of the Pigskin Pick’em football contest and the winner is — drumroll please — Diane Moffit of Brookings, who led all entries with a 15-5 record. Diane, a former teacher at Brookings-Harbor High School, was the only entry to correctly predict 15 of the 20 picks, winning a $100 bill in the process.


Lady Bruins show improvement in 3-0 loss

Lady Bruins outside hitter Courtney Kay spikes the ball for a kill during BHHS’ 3-0 loss to the Del Norte Warriors on Monday evening at Del Norte High School.

Heading into Monday’s season opening game against the Del Norte Warriors, Brookings-Harbor High School head volleyball coach Samantha Greenlee decided to treat the game unlike the others.

“I approached this as a preseason game and not a win-loss game,” she admitted. “I didn’t tell the girls that. I wanted to see what our strongest rotation is, where the kinks are, and be ready to approach it again next Monday and see how we adjust.”


Outmanned Curry Youth falls to Redwood

Curry Youth's Andrew Burger runs over a tackler during Sunday's 46-0 loss to the Redwood Knights.

The Curry Youth Football program kicked off its season with both the A-division and AA-division teams in action Sunday against Eureka Redwood at Brookings-Harbor High School. 

Outmanned by the Redwood teams by as many as 10 players, both Curry teams fought uphill battles against their deeper opponents.

Bruins pillaged by Pirates

Bruins linebacker Christian Hooper, who had an interception and scored the Bruins lone touchdown during the game, tackles Phoenix running back Zach Atteberry during BHHS' 45-6 loss to the Pirates on Friday.

The Brookings-Harbor High School football team, looking to shed the memory of seasons past, overcame opening game miscues to find themselves down by just two scores at halftime. Any thoughts the Bruins had of pulling off the upset were quickly dashed however as the visiting Phoenix Pirates outscored BHHS, 28-0 in the second half en route to a 45-6 victory over the Bruins.


Panthers win in Storns’ debut

The Justin Storns era as Gold Beach head football coach is underway, and it began much the way the previous regime had ended — by winning with a smash-mouth style of game that punishes opposing defenses.

The Panthers defeated a surprisingly competitive Coquille Red Devils team, 42-30, Friday night at Gold Beach High School.


Salmon season winds down — anglers gear up for bubble fishery

Wayne Kirkwood from Medford escaped the 105-degree heat yesterday and limited out on rockfish while fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Starting today, Saturday, Sept. 6, anglers fishing for salmon in the Pacific Ocean out of the Port of Brookings Harbor can still take two last breaths for the two final days of the “All Salmon Except Coho” season south of Humbug Mountain, which finally comes to an end one hour after sunset tomorrow, Sunday Sept. 7.

But don’t put your salmon gear in mothballs yet. In the Brookings area, when one door closes, another one always opens. Anglers of the salt can still look forward to one more shot at catching a Chinook in the ocean during the (take another really, really deep breath) “2014 Chetco River Fall Chinook State Waters Terminal Area Recreational Season,” which takes place from Oct. 1-12. Hey don’t kill the messenger for relaying the name of a season that took ODFW 11 words to describe. Heck, why not make it a baker’s dozen and take up an entire sentence by adding the words “Pacific Ocean” to precede the word “Terminal”?


Panthers fall to Rogue River in opener, 3-0

Coming off last year’s winless season the Gold Beach Panthers volleyball team wanted to be more competitive this year. If their first game is any indication of what’s to come, the Panthers won’t be winless for much longer. 


Third time is the charm for Crescent City man

Crescent City’s Chadwick Poole, winner of the 2014 Slam’n Salmon Ocean Fishing Derby, poses with his family after he won $6,000 and a sculpture from artist Peter Janusch of lostcoastnaturals.com for catching the largest fish of the tournament at 30.90 pounds. From left to right are daughter Elizabeth Poole, 10; daughter Ashley Poole, 11; Chadwick Poole; wife Tia Poole; daughter Isabelle Poole 7; and daughter Olivia Poole, 9 months.

The first year, he was just a newbie learning the ropes. In the second year, he began to figure out how to fish the Southern Oregon seas. In the third year, he put all the experience together to become a champion.

Chadwick Poole, 39 of Crescent City, won the 11th Annual Slam’n Salmon Ocean Fishing Derby by catching a 30.90 pound Chinook salmon on Saturday, beating out second place James Steil by a mere 1.70 pounds.
