Kaylee Oxborrow fishes for trout at the Kids Fishing Pond during the Azalea Festival last Saturday.

For 23 years now, the Oregon South Coast Fisherman have constructed a Kids Fishing Pond that allows children 12 and younger the opportunity to fish for rainbow trout and learn the basics of fishing.

“We have parents that first came out here when they were kids and now they are bringing their kids,” said OSCF’s Tony Hobbs, who coordinated the event. “It’s now crossing generations.”

The Brookings-Harbor High School baseball team did much of what they needed to do to win Friday’s play-in game against the visiting Cascade Cougars. The Bruins held Cascade to only five hits and the BHHS pitching staff allowed no earned runs. It wasn’t enough however, as the Cougars used a solid defense and capitalized on Bruin fielding miscues to defeat BHHS, 5-0, and end the Bruins’ season.

Unseasonal salmon action awes veteran fisherman

Read more...
Jordan Personius (left) of Grants Pass caught this 27-pound lingcod and Pacific halibut one week ago Friday May 16 while ODFW port samplers were being inundated with Chinook salmon flooding into the Port of Brookings Fillet station on Saturday May 17.

It may be too soon to tell, but I think that somebody may have under-predicted this year’s ocean salmon forecast for Sacramento River kings.

Generally speaking, May is not considered a robust month for catching Chinook in the ocean.

I may know that, and the commercial and recreational sport fishing fleet may know that, but judging by last week’s flurry of fast-and-furious fish festivities, the salmon definitely did not know that.

Two seasons ago, the Gold Beach Panthers baseball team amassed only one win in a dreadful 1-14 season. Panther head coach Greg Brown told his team at the end of that season that there was going to be no more quitting. Win or lose, they would keep competing and keep fighting. Brown’s players bought into that concept, earning a respectable 13-9 record last season and now, just two season later, are league champions.

Inspiration and perspiration

Read more...
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.
