Etna v Hoopa Football test video

So, I’m using a new video editing program, and teaching myself how to use it. Figured I re-edit the Etna v Hoopa football game from the 2017 season to try some different things (think there’s also an additional clip in this version). I also figured the Lions wouldn’t mind reliving their 53-12 crushing of the Warriors. So, here it is…enjoy. (more…)

Favorite photos 2017-2018 winter season

PurrFectPawsADThese are my personal favorite photos from the 2017-2018 sports year, winter season. They were taken by Violet Carter, Courtney Quirmbach and some random guy who posts stuff on SiskiyouYouth.

The criteria for choosing them was simple. As I looked through the photos, if I liked it, I picked it. Choices had nothing to do with schools, players or level of play.

I chose the cover photo because sometimes in the age of, “everyone gets a freaking participation trophy,” some folks need to be reminded that there are still true winners. The photo is Joe Summers on the left, Coach Cliff Blakely in the middle and Ernie Maumasi on the right. It was taken following the Mt. Shasta Bears 66-56 section championship win over Colusa.

At first glance, the cover photo may seem a strange choice. There’s no action, it’s not technically great and there aren’t any vibrant colors–nothing that would normally catch your eye. (more…)

The 10th District Agricultural Association Board of Directors is happy to announce the 2018 Lifetime pass will be presented to Cheryl Scruggs of Yreka during opening ceremonies at the Siskiyou Golden Fair.

Cheryl’s love for fairs and fairgrounds began in 1960 when she started exhibiting at the Kings County Fair in Southern California where she finished her 4-H years by receiving the All Star rank. Beginning in 1990, with two daughters that were too young to show large animals, Cheryl stayed in the RV park at the Siskiyou Golden Fair with her family and they exhibited a couple of rabbits in the small animal barn. It began what has become a 28-year commitment as a parent, 4-H leader, Founding Member of the Friends of the Fair, seamstress extraordinaire designing and donating champion blankets, and most recently serving a stint as our Home Arts Supervisor, Cheryl has done it all.

Cheryl served as a Friends of the Fair board member from 2005 until she termed out in 2015. She has remained active, continuing to serve as the Halloween Festival Chairperson, on the Yard Sale Committee, in the Friends of the Fair Information Booth, and is always quick to volunteer her time for any additional activity that needs volunteers around the grounds.

The Yreka Junior All-Stars spotted Red Bluff four runs, but exploded for six of their own in the bottom of the 4th inning to take the lead. Yreka went on to win in convincing fashion 9-4, and capture the District-1 Little League title.

Aided by Yreka errors and some bad hops, Red Bluff scored a run in the first inning, two in the third and one in the fourth, for a 4-0 advantage.

Back-to-back hits by Joseph Callahan and Rance Zediker started Yreka’s offense in the bottom of the 4th inning. Both players would come around to score on errors. With one out, Quenton Yates and Tristan Zediker singled. Aiden Miller drove in Yates and Zediker with a base hit, tying the game 4-4.

Kobe Huston walked, and Isaac Deppen was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Miller scored on a balk, and Huston scored via an error, putting Yreka on top 6-4. (more…)
