Save the Fair Meeting Scheduled for January 29

The 10th District Agricultural Association will be hosting an informational meeting about the fair industry, the “state of our Siskiyou Golden Fair”, including fair history, recent changes and planning for the future. The fiscal crisis in California triggered the elimination of all state support in 2011, almost $300,000 including cash and services for the Siskiyou Golden Fairgrounds. Other fairgrounds around the state are working to become self sustaining using Joint Powers Agreements or 501C3 non-profits as the governing body. We have the opportunity to explore what will work best in Siskiyou County.

The meeting will be held in Winema Hall on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 starting at 6:00 pm.

“The fair is an important part of our community” stated Fair CEO Cliff Munson. “This meeting will be the starting point for further exploration into saving the Siskiyou Golden Fair.”

For more information, contact the fair office at 842-2767 or info@sisqfair.com. The 2013 Siskiyou Golden Fair “A Birthday Bash!” will run August 7-11, 2013 in Yreka.

The Fort Jones Lions Club is continuing its program of providing one load of firewood dur­ing the winter to qualified citizens who are residents of Scott Valley and who are unable to obtain their own supply.

The program is intended only as an emergency measure for those in dire need of wood to tide them over until they can procure a long-term solution.

Interview: Gail Jenner

I had the privilege of having award-winning author Gail Jenner as a guest on the show. Gail recently wrote Historic Inns and Eateries in the State of Jefferson which features 30 different historical sites and has recipes! Gail shared how long she has been writing and some of her challenges as a writer. Given her delightful personality and wealth of information on all things regarding the State of Jefferson, we will definitely have her back on the show. Some links to follow Gail:
