George Poe honored as 2015 Grand Marshal of the Etna Rodeo Parade

By Liz Bowen

For more than 35 years, George Poe has been a part of the Pleasure Park Rodeos in Scott Valley. He started out as a contestant competing in the Wild Cow Milking, Wild Horse, Rescue and Cowhide Races and eventually spent years on the rodeo board helping to improve the rodeo arena and grounds. George and his wife, Donna, live near Callahan along with several beloved dogs and horses.
It is fitting for George to be honored as the Grand Marshal of the Etna Rodeo Parade, which will be held this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. in Etna. The 68th Annual Pleasure Park Rodeo follows at noon at the arena just north of town on Island Road.
Maintaining and improving the rodeo grounds is a constant challenge, especially for rodeo board members who are volunteers. After the 1964 Flood destroyed the original Pleasure Park arena located by Etna Creek, the 1965 Board of Directors purchased land from Jess McNames and built anew in 1966. Since then, nearly everything at the arena has been rebuilt or replaced including bleachers, fences, corrals and even the bucking and roping chutes.
For years, George supervised the California Dept. of Forestry and Fire Deadwood Conservation Crew in cleaning up the grounds before the May and July Rodeos. As improvements were constantly needed, George was happy to expand the services provided by the local inmate crews running equipment, welding and painting. For more than two decades, the Deadwood Conservation Crews have provided a tremendous service to the rodeo grounds.
Several improvements turned into major projects with George bringing in his backhoe and other Pleasure Park supporters hauling in bulldozers and needed equipment. George spearheaded cleaning up the junk pile behind the picnic area and putting in a culvert for a second road into that little pastured area needed for parking contestant pickups and trailers. One project expanded to several days sifting through the burned-up board pile of ashes with a metal detector picking-up the nails. Yep, an unheralded job, but a significant one.
During rodeos, George has always been willing to take a stock trailer to pick up and return calves or sheep for the kids’ events – typically missing much of the rodeo. There is a lot that goes on behind-the-scenes with dependable volunteers making for a successful rodeo. George has always been willing to go the extra mile.
In his younger days, George competed in the Wild Horse Race usually serving on the three-member team as the bronc rider. Once, his team tied for first and another time won first. He remembers Gordon Thomas, Jim Dunford and Gary Boltina as his go-to partners.
Though he doesn’t fancy himself a top-notch roper, he did have success in catching a few mama cows in the free-for-all Wild Cow Milking. And George remembers fighting for first in the Rescue Race, but pulling up his galloping horse so as not to run into the board fence – and losing. George recalled when Vernon and Mimi Van Sickle streaked across the finish line at such speed that they plowed right into the fence with both being thrown into the air and crashing.
Over the years, George missed a few July Rodeos and the gymkhana playdays, when they were held in September, because he was fighting fires as a fire crew captain at Deadwood. A few years ago he retired from CDF and Deadwood, but returns to work during the fire-fighting season.
Luckily, last year, George knew what to do when he was working on the Beaver Fire near the Klamath River, while bulldozing fire line. He follows the rules building safety zones and was in the process of building one, when the fire roared up. Luckily, George and the two other men quickly deployed their emergency fire shelters. It saved them. The fire burned over the men as they lay near the soil berm he had pushed up.
All three were taken to the hospital and soon released, but George does admit that he received a pretty good burn on his lower leg, because he wasn’t able to get it inside the shelter in time. Other fires have threatened George, but this was the first time he ever had to actually deploy the emergency fire shelter. He nods his head grateful that they do provide life-saving protection. And, yes, George has already taken his fire safety class and plans on fighting fires, if needed, this coming summer.
So be sure to wave to George during the Etna Rodeo Parade and thank him for his many services to his community. He’ll be riding his Paint Horse Ruben near the front of the parade.

On Oct. 14, 2014 at their regular meeting, the supervisors were presented with speakers explaining why the $7.5 BILLION Water Bond is bad for Siskiyou County.

And the remaining $2.5 Billion is NOT enough to produce sufficient water storage.
The Siskiyou Supervisors voted 4-1 in favor of the resolution opposing the Nov. 4 Ballot measure Prop. 1 Water Bond !!! Ed Valenzuela, representing Mt. Shasta area, was the opposing vote.

Celebration – Save Historic Callahan Bridge

Scott Valley events

The grass roots Save Historic Callahan Bridge Committee celebrated its victory on Sat. Aug. 2, 2014. Fran from Callahan Emporium organized the celebration and was a ring-leader in gaining the needed donations of $9,000 to pay for the wooden beam spanners that were needed to fix it.

The bridge was built in 1906 and has been refurbished many times. This last time, when Cal-Trans deemed the wooden beam spanners were rotting (and indeed they were) the county considered closing the bridge. Fran and a handful of local folks didn’t want to see the bridge closed, so began the “Save Historic Callahan Bridge” project.

Siskiyou County worked cooperatively and the roads and bridge crew did the fixing after the spanners were purchased.

The Native Daughters of the Golden West local parlor helped with the plaque that has the name of everyone that donated.

Marilyn Seward, chairman of the Siskiyou Institute 501 c3 non profit that held the donated funds and paid the county also attended the celebration. This was truly a community project.

Many of the folks in the photo donated $100 or more to pay for the wood beam spanners.

Old Victorian home burns on Etna’s Main Street Aug. 6, 2013 in early morning

FIRES, Scott Valley events

PNP comment: I drove in to Etna this afternoon after I received this Press Release from the Siskiyou Co. Sheriff’s Dept. to check on the devastation, cuz I grew up in the house next door. Learned from a fire fighter’s mom, later, that the heat from the old two-story Victorian was so hot it broke the window in the bedroom that was mine 40 years ago.

A lot of our Scott Valley and Etna volunteer fire resources are over the Salmon Mt. fighting the Salmon River Complex of fires. Some were here, but the lucky part ( I heard) was that several crews with engines from Cal Fire were headed over the Salmon Mt. at 5 a.m. and when they saw the raging fire on Etna’s Main Street, stopped to fight it. 

The burned house is literally leveled to about four feet of blackened charcoal.  But the neighbors using their own hoses to water down their roofs and the engines doing the same is what saved the neighboring homes. It is truly amazing the other houses didn’t burn as well. Hooray for fire fighters! — Editor Liz Bowen


August 7, 2013

Rodeo Dances in Etna May 4, 2013

Photos, Ranch life, Scott Valley events

PNP comment: It was so fun to see a great turnout for the Rodeo Dance tonight at Etna City Hall. I didn’t dance, but attended to take photos of the crowing of the 2013 Pleasure Park Rodeo Queen. It has been nearly a decade since a May Rodeo Dance was held up the long flight of stairs to the refurbished upstairs hall. So fun to see friends my age and several generations younger. Then the oldest prize went to Delta Christ, who organized many a square dance in the hall over the years. Nice, fun, social evening for all ages. Great band. P.S. can’t believe it has been 40 years, since I was crowned Pleasure Park Rodeo Queen, yep, it was May 1973 and it was a cold spring threatening rain on Rodeo day, not warm like this year.– Editor Liz Bowen

Delta Christ just keeps on dancing!


Kah’lena Hayes, left, is the new 2013 Scott Valley Pleasure Park Rodeo Queen  and will reign over the Etna Rodeo on Sunday, May 5th. Kah’lena is 16 years old, attends Golden Eagle Charter School and is the daughter of Annette and Doug Hayes of Yreka.
