Klamath Dog Fanciers For 50 years Klamath Dog Fanciers, Inc. has been dedicated to the betterment of the AKC purebred dog through education and annual conformation and obedience trials.

brought many dog show exhibitors and gave the community two great dog shows each May. In 1999 a third day was added to have the first Agility Trials ever held in Klamath Falls.

Founded in 1949, a small group of local dog owners were determined to raise money to hold an AKC dog show. Creative fund raising activities filled those early years. In 1951, the AKC (American Kennel Club) gave them permission to hold their first annual AKC All-Breed Dog Show in Klamath Falls. There were 315 entries.

The group holds monthly meetings and participates in many public education projects. They take their dogs to schools and to malls. They practice showmanship skills at Fun Matches. They make regular donations to community projects including the Klamath Humane Society building fund, the Salvation Army and 4H. They donate literature and books to the County Library. The club also supported the Responsible Dog Breeders Associations of Oregon when they needed assistance to fight against proposed legislation to limit dog ownership and breeding.

In 1975, club members organized the first AKC sanctioned "A" Dog Obedience Match in Klamath Falls. Upon successful completion of the match, AKC allowed the club to hold Obedience Trials with the AllBreed Show. During the 80s, AKC approved Clusters of Dog Shows, hosted by different clubs, in one location. The Klamath show became part of the Labor Day Cluster that rotated annually between various cities. The Cluster Show came here only every few years. Club members wanted a local show. This became a mission during the ’90s. Participation in the Cluster was discontinued and the annual show moved back to the Klamath County Fairgrounds. Later, the club made application to AKC to have "back-to-back’ Saturday and Sunday Obedience and All-Breed conformation shows. They were successful and these shows

Let’s Get Klamath County Healthy!

You must give your body all the raw materials it requires to maintain and rebuild itself. Raw materials are so vital to your health, but can be very hard to find. Centuries of mining, farming, irrigation, and acid rain have eroded life-giving minerals from our soil. These mineral-deficient soils are then used to grow and cultivate our food. Because of this, our food is lacking in essential minerals. In fact, Dr. Joel Wallach, BS, DVM, ND has stated, “One sentence has killed more people than all the wars in American history... ‘You get all the nutrition you need from the four food groups.’” Dr. Wallach was a veterinarian for 30 years, working as a research veterinary pathologist. He identified a link between cystic fibrosis in monkeys and a nutritional deficiency. He then taught nutrition and studied to become a Naturopathic doctor at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Oregon. Taking from his background in veterinary medicine in which animal products are kept affordable by preventing and curing diseases with nutritional formulas, he started incorpo-

rating similar nutritional formulas for people. In 1997 Dr. Wallach and Dr. Ma Lan, MD, MS founded American Longevity, now know as Youngevity, to sell these nutritional formulas to the public. They are passionate about the benefits of good nutrition and promoting vibrant health. All Youngevity® products are designed with this principle in mind. Our products are packed with the finest plant derived minerals available. When you go shopping, there are always generic brands and imitations vying for your attention. But when it comes to your health, do not accept any imitations. There are no quick fixes, no silver bullets, and no Dr. Joel Wallach, BS, DVM, ND shortcuts. Founder, Youngevity

The Children’s Museum Offers Learning Opportunities

MISSION STATEMENT Our mission is to provide a fun, interactive environment for children and families to explore and discover the ever changing world around them. Through the arts, sciences and humanities, we hope to stimulate the creative potential within us all. HISTORY It all began in 1998 with a group of community parents who had been to children's museums in other cities and had seen first-hand what an interactive museum offers to the communities they serve. Volunteers of the museum traveled to schools and numerous community events offering hands-on activities in the arts and sciences. Through the years we learned, it's not always about the product (in our case obtaining a building) but that the "process" is equally as important and as much a part of fulfilling the mission in the end result. December 2001, we were graciously donated a dental building to house the future "Children's Museum of Klamath Falls". This donation was worth well over $245,000 and provided our organization with 7,000 square feet of operating space. Grants from Jeld-Wen, The Collins Founda-

The Family Hairloom Men & Womens Styling, Pedicures & Manicures 930 E. Main St. 541-882-6861 Mon-Fri 8-5

tion, KMSB, and The Nancy Wendt Foundation sent us on our way. Local businesses, professionals, and volunteers helped transform 24 patient rooms into an open aired three level building in which to house our exciting hands on exhibits. Volunteers from the community gave countless hours, days, evenings and even the sacred weekend to help us with our mission. July 4th 2008 The Children's Museum held it's Grand Opening for the children and families of Southern Oregon. The Children's Museum operations plan is based on income from several sources: general admissions, memberships, facility rentals, workshops, summer camp, museum store, special events and many fundraisers. In-Kind contributions of materials and volunteer services will also provide future project support. We hope to continue to provide: • A place for area youth to congregate, take on responsibility, exchange ideas and be contributing members of the community. • A place with accessible year-round exhibits for kids, families, and tourists visiting our community. • A fun and educational experience for special events, award ceremonies, field trips, baby showers, birthday parties and private building rentals. The Children's Museum is offering a low cost Summer Camp for kids in the community. This isn't your ordinary camp. Our campers will go home with the thrill of exploration in their hearts. The outcome of the camp will be threefold 1) Kids get to explore 2) High School Seniors, Key Clubs, Civic Groups etc. have a great opportunity to contribute as camp volunteers and help with the kids in our camp program, while at the same time completing their requirements towards their school project and or organization. 3) Guardians who need that break, be it a medical appointment, office/school work, or just some quiet time called respite, can sign their child up for one or several camps a week. Cost of camp is $10 for the first child, $2 off for current members. Call 541-885-2995 for more information. The Children's Museum will be celebrating its 5 year anniversary July 4th, 2013. Come celebrate with us, and if you haven't been to explore, now is a great time to check us out! Please check out the website for more information about the variety of activites and events offered by the Children’s Museum. WWW.CMKF.ORG.

A Weekend of Wacky Mobile Art The ninth annual Klamath Kinetic Challenge will again be held in conjunction with the Klamath Kruise, June 28th - 30th. The course will undergo some slight modification this year, so watch the website for details! Saturday will take you from Veterans Park to Moore Park, the sand pit and then KOA. Sunday will start at KOA, head to Moore Park, on the water, then to Veterans Park, the Mud Pit and more water! If you’ve had your head in the sand the last eight years you may not know what a Kinetic Sculpture Race is. Kinetic Sculptures are homemade, human powered vehicles able to travel (hopefully) over land, sand, muck, rocks, and oh yeah, water. They carry one, two, four or more people. The race is to see if these fantastic creations are able to negotiate the course. Awards are given for engineering/construction, art, speed, and many other frivolous achievements such ad dominating the Mud Pit. The Race is really a Festival put on for the fun of all involved, including spectators. Anyone can get involved and build a Sculpture for the race. Sculptures came from all over for previous events. in 2008 five local teams entered, and in 2007 there were six. We’re hoping even more adventurous, ingenious people from Klamath Falls, and elsewhere, will enter sculptures in the future. Race festivities are best enjoyed by those directly involved. Workshops are held every once in a while to assist you with the pesky details of building a Sculpture of your own. Check our website at www.klamathkinetic. org for upcoming workshops and contacts who can help with information. Volunteers are always needed. Planning is already underway, and you can have a positive impact. Vol-

unteers are highly appreciated by the racers and “bribes” are readily given. You really don’t want to miss this event! Again, check our website for whom to contact. Participants probably have the most fun, as they are intimately involved in the Sculptures, but spectators have a great time watching the spectacle as well. The Race begins on Saturday at Veteran’s Park. The course takes the Sculptures down Klamath Avenue to Main Street, beginning in earnest there. Then up the steep climb of KAGO Hill, continuing down the “Gravel Boulevard” to Moore Park where they will cross the Sand Pit, then the racers will follow city streets to the KOA. Sunday the racers will begin at the KOA and take a street route back to Moore Park and will enter Klamath Lake at the Marina, come back out and head down the Link River Trail, then back to Veteran’s Park and the Mud Pit and then go for another swim. There are several great locations for viewing the Racers along the route, with many spectators choosing to follow along on foot or bike, or driving to different locations to see how their favorite Sculpture does in the different obstacles. Dinner will be available for purchase in Veteran’s Park Sunday evening, where awards will be given and entertainment will happen. Join the fun! You’ll be glad you did.

Lava Beds National Monument: A Great Excursion for the Whole Family!

The Lava Beds are a great place of beauty and Indian

to permit entrance into the caves we know today.

history for all to enjoy, learn about and explore.

Before entering any cave, check the visitor center for information on specific caves and for general safety information. It is generally advised that each person carry a light source, wear protective clothing, sturdy shoes and head gear, carry an extra jacket, go with a friend, tell someone where you are going and when you will be back, don’t change your plans, and stay near your car. Most caves are open to the public to visit on their own. However, Crystal Ice Cave and Fern Cave require reservations for guided tours due to their sensitive environments. Some caves require crawling to negotiate parts of the passageway, so bring a pair of gloves and take safety precautions.

The volcanic turmoil which produced the raw materials for the surface land forms which you see in Lava Beds National Monument also left a vast array of lava tubes below ground. There are over 435 known lava tubes within the monument. A few lava tubes display evidence of having “blown their tops” from accumulated gas pressures during their formation. In most cases the entrances which permit discovery and exploration are the result of collapse a short time after the tubes were formed. Formation of the lava tubes was the result of very hot fluid lava issuing from cracks of fissures on the moderate slopes of the Medicine Lake Volcano. As the lava flowed it began to cool and solidify on the top and sides. The conforming crust insulated the molten lava as it continued to flow. When the eruption ceased, the remaining lava drained away, leaving lava tubes. The surfaces collapsed

Caving is only one of the activities available at the Lava Beds. Numerous trails are available for hiking, and most are not very long and lead to significant areas. There are also a number of significant locations associated with the Modoc Indian War such as Captain Jack’s Stronghold and

Gillam’s Camp. The Petroglyph area is also something not to be missed. Remember to bring your own water, because there are no streams or ponds in the park. Rattlesnakes inhabit the park, so caution is recommended. Park headquarters for the Lava Beds is 30 miles from Tulelake, California and 58 miles from Klamath Falls, Oregon. Watch for signs on California 139, 5 miles south of Tulelake and 26 miles north of Canby. In the summer park rangers lead daily walks and cave trips and conduct campfire programs. Food, lodging, gasoline, oil and auto repairs are available in Tulelake and Klamath Falls. Near the visitor center a 40 unit campground with sites suitable for tents, campers, and small trailers is open all year. There are no hookups. Water is available during the summer. From September 15 to May 15 water is available at the visitor center. For visitor information call 530-667-2282 ext 232. REMEMBER!! Lava tube caves are irreplaceable treasures. Lava formations will not grow back once broken. Please do not break, deface, remove, or otherwise vandalize any cave formations (lava, ice, etc.) in any way. Lets save it for future generations to come!

Crater Lake Facts Crater Lake National Park protects the deepest lake in the United States. Fed by rain and snow (but no rivers or streams) the lake is considered to be the cleanest large body of water in the world. The water is exceptional for its clarity and intense blue color. The lake rests inside a caldera formed approximately 7,700 years ago when a 12,000-foot-tall (3,600 meter) volcano collapsed following a major eruption. The eruption may have been the largest in North America in the past 640,000 years. Later eruptions formed Wizard Island, a cinder cone near the southwest shore. Today, old-growth forests and open meadows blanket the volcano’s outer slopes, harboring a variety of plants and animals, including several rare species. The area is central to the cultural traditions of local American Indian tribes, and the park provides unique opportunities for scientific study and public enjoyment.

Crater Lake National Park

Crater Lake was known to local Native Americans, but remained undiscovered to white explorers until 1853. Three prospectors came across it that year, but it wasn’t until Captain Clarence Dutton of the U.S. Geological Survey explored it that much was known about Crater Lake. In 1902 Crater Lake became Oregon’s only National Park. It is also the deepest lake in the United States at 1,943 feet and seventh deepest in the world. Formed by the eruption of Mt. Mazama 7,700 years ago, the lake is supplied only by rain and snow melt. With its 2,000 foot cliffs on the inside of the caldera, and deep blue lake, this park is a must see! The park is located 62 miles Northwest of Klamath Falls. Take Hwy 97 to Chiloquin and then Hwy 62 to the park. Crater Lake is open year round, but access is limited during the winter to the south entrance. Many activities are available at the park. In the summer there are 90 miles of hiking trails, including a portion of the Pacific Crest Trail, boat tours to Wizard Island, and exploring the park, discovering its wildlife and plant life. In the winter the trails become cross country ski routes, and snowshoeing is popular. Interpretive talks are also given by park rangers. It is possible to stay overnight in the park. If you want to camp in the park’s backcountry permits are required. Contact the park for information. The Crater Lake Lodge is an elegant option for accomodations. The lodge is on the National Register of Historic Places, and rehabilitation was completed in 1994. There are also campgrounds and a motel at Mazama Village. In 1905, a first time visitor to Crater Lake described the nature experience in words that are as perfect

today as they were then: “…No other place in the world permits the eye to behold 20 square miles of placid blue water in which the mirrored walls vie with the original slopes in brilliance. Man’s mind turns weakly to the beginning of the world and he realizes how short his time is on earth. But short as it is, it should include a visit to this indescribable and wonderful region.” Phone: 541-594-2211

Klamath Restoration Celebration Held each year on the fourth weekend in August. This annual event marks the anniversary of the Restoration of the Klamath Tribes, which includes; the Klamath, Modoc and Yahooskin Bands of the Snake Indians. In 1954 the Klamath Tribes were terminated. But after many years of struggling, hard work and determination, the Tribes regained federal recognition by an act of Congress. With restoration in 1986 the Tribes began to develop a full scope of programs which provide necessary services to Tribal members and the community. Today the Tribes operate with a budget of over $12 million annually, with over 30 different departments and services offered. They now celebrate their Restoration each year by hosting a huge celebration. In 2013 the 27th annual celebration will take place August 23rd - 25th and will have: Fun Run/Walk, Competition Powwow, Parade, Arts and Crafts, Youth Rodeo, Vendors and much more! Everyone is invited to attend! For more information call 1-800-524-9787 ext. 147

Craig Morgan Will Headline 2013 Concert at Lake County Roundup

Country music fans will rejoice to learn that singer Craig Morgan was recently announced as the headlining act for the 2013 Lake County Round-Up concert. A native of Kingston Springs, Tennessee, Morgan’s career commenced with his first album with Atlantic Records, the self-titled Craig Morgan, in 2000. Three singles off that initial effort included “Something to Write Home About,” which hit number 39 on the Billboard charts. In 2011, Morgan signed with Black River Entertainment. To his credit, Morgan supplied guest vocals on Colt Ford’s “She Likes to Ride in Trucks.” His first release for Black River is “This Ole Boy,” that also appeared on Joe Nichol’s 2011 album “It’s All Good.” Not so coincidentally, “This Ole Boy” is also the title track to his album of the same name, released in February. The title track was a bonafide Top 20 hit on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, followed by two more singles, “Corn Star” and “More Trucks Than

Cars.” Known for his charitable work and performances at U.S. military bases stateside as well as abroad, Morgan received the USO Merit Award in 2006 for his ongoing efforts and support. As he himself is a veteran of the U.S. Army, Morgan cites his experience as a prime memory in continuing to support the men and women serving in the armed forces. Additional musical highlights for Morgan included 2003’s “I Love It,” and 2005’s “My Kind of Livin’,” followed by 2006’s “Little Bit of Life.” For more information, visit www.craigmorgan.com.

Ewauna Rowing Club The Ewauna Rowing Club was founded in 1970 and has been rowing on the 2200 meter long Lake Ewauna ever since. The Rural Henley Regatta is the rowing club’s annual event, and takes place in July. Loosely based on the Royal Henley regatta, The Regatta is held annually in July and consists of fully Albano buoyed, 6-lane, 1000m qualifiers for a two lane, head-to-head final over the Henley (1 1/3 mile) distance. We often have equipment available for guest rowers to use, and frequently have seats in composite boats available as well, making our regatta very user-friendly for singles, novice rowers or small crews that may not have enough people to fill a boat! The 1000m qualifiers utilize a standard Master's format, although competition is open to all ages. Juniors are handicapped inside the "AA" age group. If, for example, there are four age groups racing in the 1000m men's 1x event, the two best handicapped times are invited to compete for the 1 1/3 mile distance. A 48 year old could be racing against a 23 year old in the Henley event with the handicap applied as a staggered start. Mixed boat events do not have a Henley final (1000m race only). Medals are awarded for the 1000m events; the Henley is the grand final in each category and boat trophies are awarded for success in this race. We are working on corporate sponsorship of trophies and beef steaks will be awarded to winners of the Henley events, making these official 'steak' races. The club encourages competition, and competes in regattas held by rowing clubs throughout the area, but also welcomes members who prefer to row for enjoyment. Rowing is a non-impact aerobic exercise emphasizing teamwork and technique. It is an activity that can be learned at any fitness level or age. Ewauna Rowing Club offers Learn to Row sessions for anyone interested. Please visit their website at www.klamathrowing.org for more information.

Klamath Falls Farmers Market Making it Social, Shopping Local

The Klamath Falls Farmers Market was established in 2000, and has been an Oregon Non-Profit Corporation since 2002. Our 501c3 was awarded in 2004. This will be our 14th year of operation, growing and learning every season. This is also our 2nd full year to be in 9th street, instead of the parking lot. The move has really made for a wonderful, more "event/fair" type of atmosphere, also providing for an improved parking situation. We have expanded from 32 vendor spaces to 44, with a dedicated Kids Activity Booth, and a larger, more appropriately located Entertainment booth, with ideas for a sitting/eating area. In addition to our regular vendor spaces, we provide 2 booths for local area charities and other non-profit organizations. More of the changes over the last few years include acquiring a wireless EBT machine and token system for accepting food stamps, along with being one of the few local outfits that is designated for folks to use their Senior & WIC Farm Direct Nutrition Program vouchers. Staring in 2010, the program saw $1500 in EBT food stamps used, approximately $3000 in 2011 and $6000 last season - a wonderful success, providing benefit to both our low income customers, our seniors enrolled in USDA Farm Direct Nutrition

Program and producers alike. Working with ODA and USDA on improving these programs is really important to us as an organization. Our "Kids Program" has grown into an anticipated activity for many families. Thanks to Susan Smith, we're able to provide a different creative project for every child to participate in every week. Projects are agriculture related, educational and fun. The program keeps learning and growing right along with the young people who join in. New relationships and becoming a more active participant in the larger Klamath Basin Community is a huge goal for the Market as an organization. We see "Community" as the primary and most important aspect of our mission. This encompasses our agriculture, health, education, culture and economy just to name a few aspects, but communication, cooperations, sharing resources and knowledge, and a supportive public make it all come together. Looking at our agriculture and produce vendors, it has always been a challenge to expand, find and recruit existing local producers or encourage new producers. We continue to take up that challenge, as do our current producers, who are expanding from 1 booth to 2 or 3 booths, and this works too! We're excited and proud to be able to offer a wider variety and quantity of local, quality agriculture and produce. We hope to have fully 50% of our space filled with local food of one sort or another, including produce, baked goods, canned and pickled products, and ready-to-eat food vendors. Our season has effectively already begun, with the first big vendor sign-up meeting having been held on March 27th. We will also have regular monthly organizational meetings on the 4th Wednesday of every month at 6pm in the Community Meeting Rood, 133 N 4th St. Everyone is welcome at these meetings. community input and involvement is encouraging. Committed volunteers are always needed, also. Volunteers make it happen!

Klamath County Museums The Klamath County Museum system includes several muse-

ums that can provide a fun and educational diversion for all ages to enjoy. Whether you are interested in anthropology, history, geology or wildlife, there is something for everyone. Baldwin Hotel Museum Built in 1906 to lodge the anticipated travelers arriving by train from San Francisco who came to experience the outdoors and see Crater Lake. Guides set the mood as they narrate a living history of Klamath Falls. Exhibits are so real you expect the guest to return any minute. You will enjoy original furnishings and an enchanting trip down memory lane. Listed on the State and National Historic Registers. Klamath County Museum Spend an hour or all day browsing through Klamath’s history. Birds displayed in natural habitat, Native American artifacts and dioramas, relics from Pioneer days and wagon roads each tell a story of the region’s heritage. Early Native American treaties and the Modoc War of 1872-73 set the stage for a trip to the site to better understand this phase in American history. From the museum, you can develop your personal itinerary of sightseeing or enjoying a multiple of recreational choices. Fort Klamath Museum and Park On the road to Crater Lake, stop by the first frontier military post in the region which was established here in 1863. The guardhouse (museum) exhibits fort relics, pictures and has a small gift shop. Picnic under the pines and let your imagination paint a picture of the past. The gravesites of Captain Jack, Modoc Chief, and three warriors are a short distance from the museum. The Little Red Post Office was moved to the grounds in 1998 to preserve the postal history of the Klamath Indian Agency. During summer months, the Living History Association of Oregon stages reenactments in period clothing. Ask about dates. The Museum also hosts frequent educational programs for the public to enjoy.

Crater Lake Century Ride The Crater Lake Century Ride is a 100 mile ride that will take place August 17, 2013. The Ride began in 2005 and is a fundraiser for the Klamath Lake County Food Bank and the Klamath County Museums. Since 2005 the Ride has donated over $43,000. There are two rides available to participants. The Century Ride is 100 miles long, and the Metric Century is 62 miles long. Both rides (this is not a race) are rated extremely difficult by the Bicycle Ride Directors Association of America. Riders will begin their trek at the Fort Klamath Museum on the Crater Lake Highway (Hwy 62) at an elevation of 4,000 feet, and will enjoy the first 35 miles along the valley floor of the Wood River Valley with breathtaking views of the surrounding Cascade Mountains and old growth forests. They will then climb 3,000 feet to the Crater Lake Rim. Once they reach the Rim, Century Riders will continue another along another 30 miles of peaks and

valleys of Rim Drive. Then riders will enjoy the ride back down to the Wood River Valley and will end the ride with 8 miles of flat roads back to the Fort Klamath Museum. The Metric Century ride will start at the Fort Klamath Museum also, but will begin to ascend to the Rim of Crater Lake after 8 miles. Riders will turn around on the Crater Lake Rim at the Phantom Ship Overlook, and after a well-deserved break, will descend back down to the Wood River Valley and the Fort Klamath Museum. Riders are required to wear helmets, and are advised to bring water, tube, patch kit, tire levers, pump, spare tire and dress in layers. For more details and registration information see the website at www.craterlakecentury.com. There are 300 maximum spots for riders, 275 for the Century and 25 for the Metric Century. Spots fill quickly, so don't wait!
