Logging show dedicated to Ole Salem, industry giant
Wednesday, July 8, 2015 — Ole Salem, a tough competitor and supporter of the logging show since the beginning of the Paul Bunyan Mountain and Blues Festival, will be remembered Saturday, July 11, with the 2015 event dedicated in his memory.
Salem, who died this past February, lived at Salem Ranch on the east shore of Lake Almanor. He began his career in logging in 1961. According to his obituary, he “made his mark in the logging industry as being one of the best log loader operators around.”
Also he mentored those in the industry.
