Heading east to the Klamath County Fairgrounds, doors to the Home and Garden Show are now open.

This year's show has a strong focus on ways that home owners can protect and increase the value of their home.

"We have more energy improvement type vendors here, giving seminars for the home owners to learn what they can do to cut their energy bill, we have vendors that are providing beautification to homeowners." says Rachael Spoon of the Klamath Basin Builders Association.

This is the 37th year that the Klamath Basin Home Builders Sssociation has sponsored the show.

Over 90 vendors will be on hand for the event, which runs through Sunday.

KOTI-TV NBC2 reporter Lyle Ahrens moved from Nebraska to Klamath Falls in the late 1970's.  He instantly fell in love with the mountains, the trees and the rivers, and never once regretted the move.

Lyle's job history is quite colorful.  He’s managed a pizza parlor; he’s been a bartender, and a “kiwifruit grader” at an organic orchard in New Zealand.  A Klamath Falls radio station hired Lyle in the mid 90's as a news writer and commercial producer.  In 2004, Lyle joined the KOTI/KOBI news operation.

Lyle notes with pride that he has a big responsibility presenting the Klamath Basin to a wide and varied audience.  "The on-going water crisis has underscored the fact that the people and the issues in the Klamath Basin are every bit as diverse as the terrain.  Winning and keeping the trust of the viewers, as well as the newsmakers, is something I strive for with each story".

When he's not busy reporting the news, Lyle enjoys astronomy, playing guitar, fixing old radios and listening to anything by Sheryl Crow.
