CFCU scores $15,000 for food bank

One hundred and six golfers teed off at 18 different holes June 13 for the Shotgun Start of the 7th annual Chetco Federal Credit Union (CFCU) Benefit Golf Tournament at Salmon Run Golf Course in Brookings, Ore. 

The Grand Sponsors for this year’s benefit were All Star Liquors and Elk Valley Rancheria. All Star Liquors owner, Jed Driggers stated, “We are proud to be a Grand Sponsor of this event, and give back to the community. This has become an annual honor for us. This is the fourth year All Star Liquors has been a Grand Sponsor for this event, benefitting the Brookings-Harbor Food Bank.” 

Elk Valley Rancheria Chairman, Dale Miller said, “On behalf of the Elk Valley Rancheria, California Tribal Council, we are proud to support causes that both strengthen and promote community health. It is critical that we continue to donate the funding necessary to help keep children and their families fed during these tough economic times.” Elk Valley Rancheria has been a Grand Sponsor of the event for the last two years.

“As we all know, the need to provide food for families and hungry children has grown this year,” said Stanley J. Baron, CFCU president/CEO. “CFCU’s benefit golf tournament has become an important funding source for the Brookings-Harbor Food Bank and I am very pleased that, with the help of our sponsors and the community, we are able to donate $15,000 to help feed the hungry children in this community.”

A meandering ridgeline delivers endless old-growth panoramas in Coastal Trail’s DeMartin Section

There’s something off-putting about a stretch of the Coastal Trail located on the inland side of the highway.

That’s why Laura and I put off hiking the DeMartin Section for almost a year and a half. On maps, it just doesn’t seem as compelling as sections that hug coastal cliffs or follow the original Redwood Highway. Heck, we even ventured onto sections of Southern Oregon’s Coast Trail while eschewing DeMartin.

Had we asked, we no doubt would have heard about the unique raised path through grand old growth that awaited us on the northern half of the DeMartin Section. But when it comes to hiking, there’s nothing better than making your own discoveries. Besides, by waiting until June we were rewarded with some of the best bursts of rhododendrons in the redwoods. They’ve faded by now, but I don’t propose waiting another year to hit this trail.
