Keys resigns as Bruins track coach

Veteran Brookings-Harbor High School head coach Jim Keys has resigned from his position at the helm of the BHHS track and field program and longtime assistant head coach Terry Axel has been named as his replacement.

Keys cited “numerous reasons” he stepped down from the position he has held since 2002, but stated the main reason was he wanted the chance to spend more time with his family. 


Anglers score on surfperch; more on rockfish ID’s

On a black rockfish, the rear of the maxillary extends to the middle of the fish’s eye or beyond as viewed from the front of the fish’s mouth.. This photograph clearly shows an example where the maxillary extends beyond the rear of the eye. On a blue rockfish, the back of the maxillary will rarely extend beyond the middle of the eye.

Before rains hit the South Coast last week, anglers were making some nice catches of striped, redtail and calico surfperch. It’s not that unusual for surfperch to be caught in January and February. What is unusual is having sunny skies and calm enough seas to fish for the flat-siders, which is what anglers had last week and can expect possibly toward the end of next week as well, after these series of storms pass through.


Bruins to ‘test their mettle’

Bruins sophomore Isaiah Ross (seen here on the right wrestling at the BHHS Invitational on Jan. 7) won his lone match at the Marshfield Dual meet on Monday.

“Character is counted when you are up against it.”

That quote from the movie “Invincible” applies to this week for the Brookings-Harbor High School team.

The Bruins began what is likely their toughest and most important streak of meets this season by competing at the Marshfield Dual meet on Monday before traveling to North Bend High School on Thursday to face off against league rivals in the North Bend 4-way Dual meet. After that, the Bruins take their talents to Cottage Grove for this weekend’s Cottage Grove Invitational, where they will compete against wrestlers from more than 40 different Oregon prep teams in the last tournament before the district finals on Feb. 13-14.


Lady Bruins renew rivalry against reigning state champs

As of last week, neither the Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins nor the Sutherlin Lady Bulldogs had a game scheduled for Tuesday evening. 

Both teams agreed to renew their former Far West League rivalry at North Bend High School, with the defending state champion and undefeated Lady Bulldogs besting the Lady Bruins, 53-27. 


States set spring Chinook, smelt seasons

VANCOUVER, Washington. — Fishery managers from Oregon and Washington set spring Chinook salmon and smelt seasons for the Columbia River and some of its tributaries today during a joint state hearing in Vancouver.

 The Columbia River spring Chinook season is based on a forecast of 232,500 returning upriver spring Chinook, compared to an actual return of 242,600 last year. The forecast provides for a fishery downstream of Bonneville Dam running through Friday, April 10 with an expected kept catch of about 11,500 spring Chinook prior to a run update. The season for the lower Columbia below the I-5 Bridge opened Jan. 1 under permanent rules. The regulations adopted today will take effect March 1.


Defense dominates in Bruins wins

With Friday's win over Douglas, the Lady Bruins are alone in first place in the Far West League.

Friday’s Brookings-Harbor High School basketball games against the Douglas Trojans at Douglas High School capped an incredible week for Bruins and Lady Bruins basketball. 

With both teams winning in convincing fashion on Friday, the Bruins and Lady Bruins are firmly in the Far West League playoff picture.


Rockfish identification: a morphology lesson

These two photographs clearly show differences between blacks and blue rockfish.

Sometimes I feel like I’m a corrupt version of an old Jeff Foxworthy joke — If you live in Oregon and your passion is telling the difference between different species of rockfish, you might be a.morphologist?

The fact of the matter is, if you live in Oregon and you love fishing for rockfish, you better be married to the genus Sebastes — or until very expensive ticket do you part. And in this day and age, that makes every rockfisherman by default, a morphologist.

This year, ODFW implemented a few new rockfishing rules. Within your seven rockfish daily limit, only three may be blue rockfish.

Gold Beach’s Savanna Rucker drives against Myrtle Point’s Madi McNeely during Tuesday’s game.

When Brookings resident Nathan Dodgen, who had Down Syndrome, passed away in November of 2011 due to an infection of the brain, the loss sent shockwaves throughout the community. 

Those who knew “Cap’n Nate” knew him as a smiling, enthusiastic young man who had an infectiously positive attitude toward life and a soul that touched anyone that knew him. 

“Anybody who knew Nathan knew he was happy and was everybody’s best friend. He loved new challenges and always had a plan to do something,” said Nathan’s father, Patrick W. Dodgen.

For Brookings-Harbor High School basketball fans, Tuesday night was one to remember.
