Lady Panthers ready to play
August 30, 2013 09:25 pm

Head Coach Tracy Wallace has been at the helm of the Gold Beach High School (GBHS) Lady Panthers Volleyball program for seven years and seems confident about the upcoming season.

 Yet Wallace knows better than anybody that it will take more than warm fuzzy feelings to win in the OSAA 2A Sunset League.

33-pounder tips the scales as Friday’s biggest fish
August 30, 2013 09:24 pm

With 498 registered competitors catching 160 fish on day one, the 2013 Slam’n Salmon Derby looks to be similar in quality and quantity to last year’s derby. 

Bandon resident Gail Van Dorn was certainly happy with the fishing as she weighed her two fish at the weigh station.

Monster slabs hitting the fillet stations
August 30, 2013 05:38 pm

Large Pacific halibut was caught last week out of the Port of Brookings Harbor, like this 60-pound barn door caught by Tom Garvin.
There are some very large halibut coming to the fillet station. Admittedly, not everyone who is fishing for halibut is catching them. But when you see someone struggling to hoist a 60-pound barndoor over the gunnel, that gives the neighboring anglers enough incentive to continue dragging 2 pounds of lead across the bottom in 240 feet of water.

Folks have been catching their halibut in the usual hangouts, such as the underwater canyon offshore from the Thomas Creek Bridge. But lately, people have been looking for deep water ranging from 140 to 250 feet off of Bird Island, Twin Rocks and House Rock, and some of these newer haunts have been kicking out a halibut every now and again.

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.

Girls soccer sets lofty goals
August 20, 2013 07:48 pm

Sophomore Hanna Leonard shoots on goal as she is guarded by classmate Alex Ward during a scrimmage following Tuesday mornings practice.

As far as goals go, the Brookings-Harbor High School Girls soccer team has just a couple: win the Far West League championship and make it to the state playoffs.

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.
