Siskiyou Golden Fair seeks
Clubs for 2019 Flower Bed Competition
YREKA- The Siskiyou Golden Fair is seeking clubs and organizations that have a green thumb or two for the annual Flower Garden Competition. “This competition adds so much color and beauty to the annual fair” stated Cliff Munson, CEO, “We encourage groups and organizations in Siskiyou County to sign up and add a happy splash of color to this year’s fair August 7-11 celebrating 160 years since the first fair in Siskiyou County.” Clubs must be “official” clubs and can have either adult or youth membership or both. Entry forms, guidelines and rules are available now at the Siskiyou Golden Fairgrounds or online at www.sisqfair and must be returned by March 15, 2019.
The competition beds must be planted between May 13thand June 28, 2019 to be eligible for the first through 3rdcash prizes for both large and small gardens. Late planted beds will not be eligible for prize money. The competition will require some weeding and flower bed care between planting and the fair. Watering is done by fair staff. “We have eight gardens available for this annual competition so get your entry in quick,” stated Munson, “this is a first come first served contest”. Returning entrants have first priority for their previous garden if their entry is one of the first eight received.
For more information, contact the fair office at 842-2767 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The 2019 Siskiyou Golden Fair “160 Years of Old Fashioned Fun” will run August 7-11, 2019 in Yreka.

When you walk through the doors of Clarity Medical Spa in Yreka, California you are greeted with soothing sounds of running water and smells of aromatherapy. You are offered tea or water by friendly receptionists, and then are ushered back to your treatment room with your practitioner. Whether your treatment is for a medical procedure, a soothing facial, massage or a nail treatment, the spa staff and practitioners do their best to ensure your experience is a pleasant one.
Clarity Medical Spa was the brainchild of Rachel Dunn-Black, M.D., a well-known local physician who left her general practice in February of 2007 to open the spa. Her vision was to create a calming environment to encourage relaxation and healing, but also a place to perform cosmetic procedures. She began the spa with just a receptionist and now the spa houses two massage therapists, four aestheticians, a nail technician and three office staff.
The medical procedures at the spa are all performed by Dr. Dunn-Black and include Botox, Restylane and Juvederm injections, CoolSculpting, laser for permanent hair removal and improvement of superficial facial and leg veins, laser for removal of age spots, Ultherapy for skin tightening, BroadBand Light treatments for diffuse pigment improvement, laser resurfacing for improvement in skin texture, pigment and wrinkles and also cosmetic mole removal. Dr. Dunn-Black is especially proud that she owns the top of the line lasers for all of these procedures, quite an accomplishment for such a small county. With many years of training and experience she is able to offer impressive cosmetic results, often at a fraction of the cost found in larger cities.
“We commonly are told by clients they are surprised to find this sort of facility and the breadth of procedures in such a small county,” said Dr. Dunn-Black.
