Star Sushi Celebrates Its First Anniversary in Ashland

Star Sushi, located at 293 E. Main in downtown Ashland (across from Bloomsbury Books), is celebrating one year in business. Owner Mario Camcho made the move in August 2012 after his family’s restaurant in Medford had enjoyed considerable success over the last seven years.
“I started work-ing with my father’s restaurant in Bea-verton when I was twenty years old,” Mario said. “In 2006 we decided to move to Medford and open a Star Sushi there. It was very popular, and we thought a similar restaurant in Ashland would be equally successful.”
The atmosphere at Star Sushi is comfortable and relaxing, with interesting murals on the wall, fun sculptures, and a number of tables along the walls and in front facing East Main. The sushi bar is located in back, and it seats eight people. There you will meet their all-star chef Ricky, who hails originally from Korea and knows everything there is to know about sushi and all its different permutations.

Healthy Home Solutions at Ricco Patterson Electric

While Congress dithers over the immigration act, the success of Ricco Patterson Electric in Ashland is a classic American Dream immigration story.
Co-owner Ricco Patterson was born in a small village outside Bogota, Colombia, and after being orphaned, was fortunate to be adopted to the U.S., becoming a U.S. citizen at the age of seven. He grew up in Olympia, Washington, and on the Rogue River in Galice, where his adoptive family owned and operated a river expedition company.

Wholistic Healing at Mederi Centre

When it comes to healing, Donald "Donnie" Yance, the Founder and Lead Practitioner at Ashland's Mederi Centre for Natural Healing, prefers a wholistic approach. A tireless researcher and a compassionate practitioner, Donnie doesn't believe in a "one-size-fits-all" approach to healing.
"Everyone is unique and thus, every illness is unique," says Yance. "Using our Eclectic Triphasic™ Medical System (ETMS), we create personalized treatment plans focused on a whole-systems approach to patient care. As a therapeutic and diagnostic lens, the ETMS aids in the successful selection of the most appropriate, effective medicines, many of which are botanically based products that we have formulated."

Great Cuisine at House of Thai

I've always had a soft place in my heart for House of Thai Cuisine, located at 1667 Siskiyou Boulevard. The restaurant opened in February 1989, and four months later (June 1989) my wife and I took the whole extended family there for dinner after our wedding.
Owners Piengchit and Phil Crompton love to hear romantic stories like that. The two met in 1995 when Phil was getting his car washed at Siskiyou and Harmony Lane and he noticed a woman at the house next door working in the yard.

Peace and Tranquility at Rose Yoga

Like many people, Janet Langley found Iyengar Yoga because of a sports injury. And just like many others, she was so inspired by the different approach to yoga that allowed her, even with a temporary injury, to excel that she stuck with it.
Janet was living in Santa Barbara at the time. Her family began migrating to Ashland in the 1980s, and she loved it, hoping to relocate.
