A Carousel for Brookings

A Carousel for Brookings was a vision that Bud Halliday carried with him since his youth as a “carnie”. With this idea in mind, he set about planning it literally from the ground up. Not an easy task, but this dedicated group of enthusiasts now spend many hours planning fund-raisers in Brookings for their mission to bring entertainment and industry to the Brookings-Harbor Wild Rivers Coast.

Hear Angela’s interview with Burrill Catanach, one the Board members of A Carousel for Brookings.

Ewing’s Doings: George Cady and the Brookings-Harbor Friends of Music

In this edition of Ewing’s Doings, Angela Ewing talks with Brookings-Harbor Friends of Music board member George Cady.

Friends of MusicFriends of Music is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing a variety of fine musical events to the southern Oregon coast and to stimulating interest in fine music. They present an annual series of concerts that brings some of the world’s best musicians to our little corner of the world – something normally only seen at much higher cost in large metropolitan areas.

Cady is a retired engineer with a life-long love of classical music, both as a performer and a listener. He brought his passion for fine music to Brookings-Harbor when he retired from his career as defense contractor.

In this program Cady talks about the synergistic relationship between the sciences and mathematics and classical music, how the Friends of Music outreach program is introducing fine music to the students of the Brookings-Harbor school district, and how Friends of Music succeeds in bringing outstanding musicians from around the world to perform in our small community of Brookings-Harbor.

Richard Leathers Photo “Friendship”

Richard Leathers is one of those people who are reluctant to talk about their skills and talent in our artistic community of Brookings, Oregon. Only by asking questions does one get to understand the complexity of Richard’s art and his love of nature revealed in his clever photography.

Richard discovered his love of taking pictures in the 70’s at Berkeley, California. His first camera was a Pentax, and until he purchased a cheap Kodak digital, he had no idea what fun photography could be.

Now, after winning numerous awards in Brookings for his unique imagery and style, he uses a Canon with two lenses, wide and telephoto to show his work in galleries around town.

Ewing’s Doings – Out and About: The Fascinating History of Lakeside, Oregon

Lakeside Main Street, 1940

Lakeside Main Street in 1940. Roy Currier was an entrepreneur who had a connection with the Hollywood crowd. He built steam heated cabins in Lakeside (shown on the left of this picture) that still remained for several years for wealthy travelers after Roy Currier returned to Los Angeles in 1935. Only one cabin remains to show that Currier’s Village ever existed.

Ewing’s Doing’s host Angela Ewing has been exploring the coastal towns of Southern Oregon for many years. In her travels she has discovered secrets that have been hidden by layers of time in some out-of-the-way places. One of them is Lakeside, a tiny community so easily missed when you travel up the coast from Curry County to Winchester Bay and Reedsport.

But it’s there, a small village, if you will. It can hardly be called a city, but it has a fascinating history that she unearthed years ago when she was a contributing writer for Oregon Coast Magazine.
