The Scalpel: Episode 1 – Civility

Welcome to The Scalpel, a program series where ideas are dissected, not people.

This series is hosted by Jim Schultz, husband, father, and Pastor at the Lighthouse Assembly of God in Brookings-Harbor, Oregon. The Scalpel is a show that endeavors to practice discernment, the definition for which is inspired by Charles Spurgeon: “Discernment is not the ability to know the difference between true and false, but true and almost true.

In this episode, Pastor Schultz discusses civility: respectful, civil dialogue with those you disagree with – even about important things. This lays the groundwork for what The Scalpel is all about.

Special Program: County Commission, Brookings Mayor, and Brookings City Council Candidate Forum

On October 18, 2018, KCIW hosted a special Candidate Forum in Chetco Community Library. The forum was moderated by Douglas Bunn, Dean of the Curry Campus of Southwestern Oregon Community College. All candidates for the current races of Brookings Mayor, Brookings City Council, and Curry County Commission were invited to attend and to share their ideas and hopes concerning issues that we face in Brookings-Harbor and Curry County.

Speaking to a standing-room-only audience, the candidates answered questions written by audience members and read by moderator Doug Bunn. Questions covered a wide range of topics, from local government administration to the protection of our parks and forests.

The entire event was recorded by KCIW volunteers, so if you weren’t able to attend in person, you’ll want to listen to this podcast before you vote on November 6.

Discussion at Brookings Café: Hey Brookings, How are U?

Discussion at Brookings Café is a potpourri of topics around a table where anybody can join in the discussion. This show represents a place where the community of Brookings and the surrounding areas can discuss what concerns us as coastal residents.

Hello Brookings. How are you doing?

Well, the City of Brookings can’t really answer that question, but perhaps we can. Here is the first in a series of discussions to essentially ask the question – How are we doing? And what lies in our future? Can we expect prosperity in the next few years or do we need to make some changes? A real estate agent and a business leader weigh in on how we are doing.

Brookings Café … a discussion about what’s important to you.
