Smokey the Bear, everybody’s favorite U.S. Forest Service employee, and some of his crew were able to take a break from fighting the nearby fire and attend our Berry Festival in Klamath this last Saturday. We had so much fun. 

Alex and his team from Home Depot brought little airplane constructing kits for the kids to build and then paint. It was the perfect activity to pair with the huge display of RC planes and flight simulator at another vendor’s booth, and all for free. 

Thank You: Firefighter saved a life

It was Saturday morning. My husband Bob and I had just come home from his appointment at the podiatrist for his toes and stopped at the Hiouchi Cafe, where we had a nice breakfast. We were in the process of walking up the garage stairs at our home and Bob lost his balance and tumbled down the stairs. His head lay motionless on the cement with his legs partially on the stairs. The fall had knocked him unconscious.

Being the great-grandson of the “Father of the National Parks,” Michael Muir says the wilderness is in his DNA.

Muir remembers summer treks into the high country behind Yosemite National Park using mules and horses on trips to the cabin that his famous forebear John Muir kept in the Sierras. 

Michael continued to spend time outside with his horses after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at 15. 

Church Notebook: Time to reflect on tragedy

Where were you 13 years ago when the towers were tumbling?

It’s been said that we never forget where we were or what we were doing at those times. I know I have not forgotten.
