Wrestlers ready for upcoming state meet

Grapplers from both Brookings-Harbor and Gold Beach High Schools competed in their final meets ahead of the state championship meet on Feb. 26-27.


Back-to-back champs!

In a vastly improved Far West League, it was the Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins who, once again, came out on top.

Knowing that a win secured their second-straight league title, the Lady Bruins wasted no time in jumping out to a 20-2 first quarter lead and cruised to a 58-26 victory over the Siuslaw Vikings on Friday at Siuslaw High School.


Dollars for Doernbecher

If you’ve happened to attend a Brookings-Harbor basketball game this season, you’ve undoubtedly heard it.

“That’s 15 more dollars for Doernbecher!”

Any time a Bruin or Lady Bruin connects on a 3-point shot, a quintet of local businesses donates $3 each to the respected Portland children’s hospital.

To date, the Bruins and Lady Bruins have amassed a total of 84 three-point shots during Brookings-Harbor home games — raising approximately $950 dollars to be donated to the hospital on behalf of the high school’s leadership group.

The idea is the brainchild of current BHHS seniors and co-chairs of the leadership council — Drew Farmer and Vanessa Hernandez. The duo comprise the starting backcourt for the defending Far West League champion Lady Bruins, and both can hit the 3-point shot.


Fourth quarter run leads to Bruins win

Tied 22-22, the Brookings-Harbor Bruins went on a 10-0 run to open the fourth quarter to secure a 41-32 win over the Siuslaw Vikings on Friday at Siuslaw High School.

Brandon Curtis led the way for Brookings-Harbor, scoring a game-high 18 points, including seven fourth quarter free-throws, as the Bruins snapped a four-game losing streak.


Lady Panthers finish season tied for 1st

Gold Beach’s Hailey Timeus scored 24 points in a win over Toledo on Friday night.

Gold Beach senior point guard Hailey Timeus scored a game-high 24 points as the Lady Panthers closed out their regular season with a 51-18 win over the Toledo Boomers on Friday evening at Gold Beach High School.


Carter resigns as Bruins football coach

Brookings-Harbor  head football coach Drew Carter has resigned after one season with the Bruins.

Carter, who led BHHS to a 2-8 season in 2015, submitted his resignation on Feb. 5 and has accepted a counseling position with the Roseburg School District, according to BHHS administrators.


Herring arrive in Crescent City

James Lovett from Hiouchi, California caught this steelhead last week while side-drifting Puff Balls-and-roe on the Chetco River.

Well, they’re here, and it was my good fortune to be there when they arrived. We’re talking about the long-awaited arrival of Pacific Herring into Crescent City Harbor.

“A guy called me this morning and asked if the herring had arrived yet,” explained Leonard Carter, assistant manager of Englund Marine Supply on Wednesday. “I told him that they weren’t here yet, but they would be here any minute. Two hours later, guys were throwing them in their buckets!”

I just got to Citizens Dock on Wednesday when the first herring arrived in Crescent City Harbor, and there were a few people with bucketfuls of the baitfish leaving the dock.

By the time this article comes out, the iridescent baitfish should still be in the harbor. Although their concentrations were not super high at that time, there should be several different waves of fish coming into and building up in the harbor all week long. Normally they stay anywhere from one to three weeks, but the average time people can expect them to remain in the harbor is approximately two weeks.


ODFW offers local hunter education classes

SALEM — Take advantage of the many hunter education opportunities available right now and get hunter education certified before spring turkey season (which runs April 15-May 31 statewide plus a youth-only season April 9-10).

Hunter education is required for all hunters under the age of 18 and encouraged for adults, too. The classes cover important issues like hunter ethics and respect for private landowners; wildlife management and identification; firearms handling and safety; hunt preparation and techniques; survival; and introductory bow hunting.


Nail-biter in Douglas

When her team needed her most, Lady Bruins forward Siena Worthey stepped up big time.

The Brookings-Harbor junior, who scored 24 points in a 48-34 win over Douglas back on January 19, was held relatively in check by the Trojans defense, as she had just five points through three quarters. But Worthey played her biggest in the game’s most crucial moments -— scoring nine points in the final quarter to lead the Lady Bruins to a nail-biting 56-52 win over Douglas on Tuesday at Douglas High School.


Loss to Douglas hurts Bruins’ playoff chances

In a must-win game, the Brookings-Harbor Bruins came up three-points short.

The Bruins (6-14, 2-5), who entered Tuesday’s game against the Douglas Trojans needing to win their final four games to secure a playoff spot, saw their furious 4th quarter rally fall short in a 60-57 loss.
