We’re celebrating two of the North State’s most dynamic landmarks this month—Shasta Dam construction began 75 years ago, and Whiskeytown Dam was dedicated by John F. Kennedy 50 years ago. If you’ve wakeboarded across Lake Shasta or enjoyed a relaxing day on picture-perfect Whiskeytown’s shores, you’ll enjoy the tales of how these recreational paradises came to be.
Legendary Boz Scaggs brings his diverse repertoire to the Cascade Theatre this month, and we’ll share the musical journey that brought him to where he is today. We’ll also provide a close-up of one of our local superstars—television news anchor Jennifer Scarborough, who keeps us all in the know about what’s new (while raising four young boys, no less).
Looking to stretch your legs? Take your bike up to Siskiyou County, where you can explore your choice of numerous trails that cater to folks of all ability levels, whether you’re an expert cyclist or a family looking for a leisurely ride. You’ll get your workout for the day while enjoying some of the North State’s finest scenery.
Meanwhile, we’ll give you some tips on ensuring your fall wardrobe is fashion-forward, along with a tasty idea for making good use of that basil and zucchini that has overrun your garden.
To celebrate the new school year, we are showcasing the winners of the brand-new Young Writers and Artists Contest, sponsored by the Shasta County Writers Forum and Enjoy Magazine. Well-crafted writing is our business, and it’s a joy to provide an opportunity for up-and-coming authors to shine and be recognized. We hope you’re as impressed as we were with the caliber of talent we discovered.
Relish these last few weeks of summer, embrace the start of fall, and enjoy!
