editor’s note july 2018

IT’S AMERICA’S BIRTHDAY, and we’re counting our blessings to live in the Land of the Free. School may be out, but you can always sneak a little bit of learning into your summer. Take the kids to Cinder Cone in Lassen Volcanic National Park for a geology lesson, and hike to the top for an out-of-this world view. We’ve officially entered the sweltering days of summer, and a quick escape to the coast may soon be in order. On July 7, the Clarke Historical Museum in Eureka unveils its “Redwoods Provide(d)” exhibit, which takes a closer look at the controversy that created Redwood National Park. While you’re over there, check out The Inn at 2nd and C – it’s got some delightfully rich history. Want to travel, but aren’t sure what to do with your four-legged family members? Take them along! Our

friend Patrick John has some great tips for traveling with your dog. You’ll also find plenty of fun at Oasis Fun Center, where you can race around a go-cart track, play some mini golf and challenge your friends to a bumper boat battle. The family-owned facility has been passed down from parents to son, who grew up working there. It’s time for the Tehama District Fair, and its chief executive officer took some time to share some of her favorite things about this annual community activity. She’s committed to creating a memorable experience for all who pass through the turnstiles. Happy Independence Day, and Enjoy Northern California Living!

C I N D E R C O N E I N L A S S E N V O L C A N I C N AT I O N A L P A R K THERE’S NO MISTAKING Cinder Cone’s identity. Its looks are classic volcano. Rising 750 feet above the flatlands in the northeast corner of Lassen Volcanic National Park, Cinder Cone is part of a volcanic area with raw beauty and a jumbled history. “It has a different feel from the rest of the park,” says Lassen Park guide Shanda Ochs. “It’s more of a moonscape, more of a desolate area.” Cinder Cone formed some 350 years ago, so it’s a geological youngster. “I like to tell people it is the youngest cinder cone in all of the national parks,” Ochs says.

Other volcanoes have erupted more recently, but they’ve been around much longer. Composite volcanoes, such as Mt. Shasta, have eruptive periods mixed with long stretches of dormancy. Cinder cones form during a single eruptive phase. Lava blobs blasted from a vent break into fragments and fall around the vent, forming a cone. When a cinder cone is finished launching lava into the sky, it becomes a peaceful lump in the landscape. “Cinder cones, otherwise known as tephra cones, are the most common types of volcanoes in the world, and also the smallest,” Ochs notes.4 continued on page 20 JULY 2018 www.EnjoyMagazine.net


For more than a century, there was confusion about the age of Cinder Cone at Lassen Park. The U.S. Geological Survey fact sheet on the volcano says amateur scientist H.W. Harkness estimated Cinder Cone to be only 25 years old in an 1875 report compiled after he visited the area. His estimate seemed to be backed up by tales of volcanic activity in Northern California in the mid-1800s. The fact sheet notes an 1850 San Francisco newspaper story about someone witnessing “burning lava” running down the sides of a mountain. And in 1851, two prospectors reported seeing fire spewing from the top of a volcano and walking on rocks so hot their boots were destroyed. Joseph Diller, the first geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey to study Cinder Cone, concluded in 1891 that Cinder Cone was a much older volcano – emerging between 1675 and 1700. But in the 1930s, volcanologist R.H. Finch revived the 1851 eruption idea, saying it was the last of five lava flows, with the first in 1567. That’s where the story stood until Mt. St. Helens shook things up. The Washington volcano’s explosive eruption in May 1980 prompted the Geological Survey to reevaluate Cascade volcanoes. Scientists looked anew at Cinder Cone studies and used chemical analysis, paleomagnetic evidence and carbon-14 dating of eruption-killed trees to conclude Cinder Cone resulted from an eruptive sequence – likely lasting only a few months – in the mid-1600s. The area has pioneer history tied to Nobles Emigrant Trail. Today’s trail to Cinder Cone follows the historic trail used in the 1800s. Cinder Cone was a conspicuous landmark along the way for those headed to California’s gold fields. The Fantastic Lava Beds, piles of big blocky lava, and the Painted Dunes, resulting from oxidized ash on lava flows, are other highlights. In 1907, President Theodore Roosevelt recognized the area’s special geologic character by proclaiming it Cinder Cone National Monument.

Lassen Peak stole a bit of Cinder Cone’s thunder when it awoke from a 27,000-year sleep in May 1914. A year of small blasts was followed by the big eruption on May 22, 1915. Lassen in action drew worldwide attention and resulted in the designation of Lassen Volcanic National Park in 1916. Though not as well-known as Lassen Peak, Cinder Cone is a worthy destination. Hiking to the top offers a sense of accomplishment and great views. It’s a four-mile round trip from Butte Lake. The first section of trail gains slight elevation and stays shady. After just over a mile, the trail leaves the forest and Cinder Cone looms ahead like an enormous anthill. “There’s a 750-foot gain in a half mile, and it is not an easy trail because it is loose cinder,” Ochs says. The cinders – scorias – are lightweight and look bubbly. They make for a slow slog to the summit at 6,907 feet in elevation. The trail circling the rim provides views of Lassen Peak, Fantastic Lava Beds, Painted Dunes, Butte Lake, Snag Lake and Prospect Peak. A short trail leads into the bowl-shaped crater. Be prepared for sun, wind and the possibility of thunderstorms, Ochs says. “It’s actually better to go in the morning before the sun gets too hot out there.” And be sure to grab one of the guides at the trailhead with details about the history and geology along the way. • Directions: The turnoff to Butte Lake and Cinder Cone trailhead is 73 miles east of Redding off Highway 44. A six-mile gravel road leads to the parking area. Lassen Volcanic National Park: www.nps.gov/lavo

Dignity Health Medical Group Orthopedics Keeping You on the Move


Joint pain can make life difficult – it limits how well you function at work, at home and at play. Dignity Health Medical Group’s orthopedics team in Tehama County is ready to help you get your life back. Dignity Health North State provides personal treatment and care for joint pain, sports injuries, back problems and a range of other orthopedic conditions. The team offers expert guidance on diet, exercise, medication and surgery with the goal of providing long-lasting solutions to your pain.

“My philosophy is that I approach every patient as if they’re a primary family member.” “I love my work and feel blessed to do what I do,” says Dr. Thomas Daniel. “A good day in the ortho office is when the doctor says goodbye and the patient says goodbye, because we’ve been able to get the patient more mobile. I’ve been doing this for 35 years and still see it every day.” Innovations in technology have made this complicated job a bit easier over the years, explains Dr. Bradley Smith, an orthopedist for 20 years – and the results


are outstanding. “The ability to dramatically improve somebody’s tolerance for activity and their function, and to relieve pain – it’s really spectacular,” Dr. Smith says. “It’s not easy for the surgeon or the patient, but with the right investment by both, then there’s at least an 85 percent chance of people having a good to excellent result.” Dr. Smith also emphasized the importance of nutritional health, and advises his patients to nourish their bodies with simple, natural foods. “That makes many of the problems that come in the door much easier to manage,” Dr. Smith says. And humankindness is at the core of everything the orthopedics team does. “My philosophy is that I approach every patient as if they’re a primary family member,” Dr. Daniel explains. “A woman could be my sister. A man could be my brother. An older person could be my father, and a younger person could be my grandson.” Get the healing and personal care you need to keep moving.

just a 2nd T H E I N N AT 2 N D & C I N T H E H I S T O R I C E A G L E H O U S E I’VE NEVER MET an antique I didn’t like, so it was completely natural for a vintage sign that read “Antiques” to stop me in my tracks. Two more signs, “The Historic Eagle House” and “The Inn at 2nd and C,” set my little antique-loving, adventure-seeking heart ablaze. The glazed-over look in my husband and son’s eyes, however, was something I’d have to overcome to get them to play along. We were in Old Town Eureka, investigating the quaint Victorian district for the first time, and the last thing my guys wanted to do was browse an antique store. Still, something told me to check it out. They acquiesced with a low, communal grumble and a pair of eye rolls. We approached the front desk with intrigue and slight trepidation, wondering where the antique shop was. Corisa, the young woman at the desk, greeted us with a warm, genuine smile and welcomed us to The Inn at 2nd and C. She explained that the “Antiques” sign was a vestige of what once was there. “What is this place now?” I asked, taking it all in.4 continued on page 26

“This is a boutique hotel. It was built in 1888 and the new owners have recently renovated the building. Each room is updated and unique. Take a look around, if you like. If you come upon a room with an open door, feel free to take a look inside,” said Corisa. And so, our unexpected afternoon adventure through a beautiful old Victorian began. We first arrived in the Theater Ballroom - a huge atrium in the center of the hotel, surrounded by the interior balconies of guest rooms. We instantly imagined ladies in floor-length gowns and gentlemen in three-piece suits floating gracefully across the hardwood floor. It appeared to have stood the test of time – a place that was aged and still timelessly beautiful. Jennifer Metz, one half of the sister duo that now owns the Inn at 2nd and C, says the Theater Ballroom was her first connection to the building, and a driving force in the decision to purchase the hotel. Metz initially visited the ballroom when one of her children performed in a play there, and jokingly said to her husband, Tim, “if it ever comes up for sale, I’m going to buy it.” As the owner of an event production company who had frequently rented other facilities for events, Metz saw the Theater Ballroom as a draw because it would eliminate the need to rent other facilities in the future. “It felt like home,” she said. “It was very nostalgic for me – reminiscent of the comfort of visiting our relatives in England.” Rebecca Rex and her wife, Tammy, had lived on the East Coast, but hatched a 10-year plan to relocate to California. “Jenny and I thought of doing a food truck or some other small business together. When Jenny mentioned the hotel, I thought ‘Oh, that’s just a little bigger than a food truck,’” says Rex, with a laugh. While the sisters had never directly sought to open a hotel, the structure was already in place. “We knew the hotel would turn the business. Events are now happening four to five times a week. When people come to an event,

they are also likely to become hotel guests,” says Metz. The Theater Ballroom, which sits solidly at the core of the building, gives the impression that it’s seen all of the comings and goings of hotel guests over the 130-year lifespan of the hotel. Imagine the surprise that came in learning that what seemed to be the very heart of the building wasn’t added until 1983, nearly 100 years after the first portion of the hotel was built in 1886. Previous owners had intended for it to become some kind of mini mall. But when they fell short on cash, the project died a quick death. The Blue Ox Mill is responsible for the incredible craftsmanship that would leave anyone who didn’t know better the impression that the Theater Ballroom has always been there. We excitedly walked the halls of The Inn, running our fingers along banisters with reverence, waiting with bated breath to see what we’d find through the next open door. My son was the first one through each door as we hurried along behind him, worried he’d be lost on the immense property. Every room was a treasure in and of itself, all with a perfectly mixed cocktail of notable nods to the past and a fresh hint of the present. The rooms, each designed in their own unique aesthetic – and named after family homes, street names, family members, local attractions and fun-filled characters – carry their own sense of nostalgia. Room 42 sits, in all of its quirky glory, on the fourth floor, just above the bar, and is commonly referred to as The Captain’s Quarters. It is Rex’s personal favorite. “The Buon Gusto is a more classy experience,” she says, noting that it is outfitted with Queen Anne furniture and that it is named in honor of the old eating and drinking establishment that is a part of the property’s rich history. Gallagher’s Irish Pub now resides where The Buon Gusto once was.4 continued on page 28

WingsThat F ill The Sky B I R D I N G T H E L O W E R K L A M AT H A N D T U L E L A K E N AT I O N A L W I L D L I F E R E F U G E S “SUMMER BIRDING” is a concept that does not excite most birders. Spring migration is over. It’s hot outside. Birds stay hidden in the shade of leaves and are hard to spot. However, there is always beauty – and birds – if you know where to look. Part of the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge Complex resting in the northeastern corner of Siskiyou County features the Lower Klamath and the adjacent Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuges. Both areas offer excellent summer birding. The National Wildlife Refuge system was established in the early 20th century to stave off the impact of bird

hunting, primarily for their feathers. The Lower Klamath Refuge was established by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1908, the Tule Lake Refuge in 1928. Both were designed to be preserves and breeding grounds for wild birds and animals. Whereas other national wildlife refuges drain their ponds and lakes after spring, both of these refuges are distinct as the land was set aside for farming and agricultural activities, which results in water being available year-round. Each refuge is surrounded by mountains, hills and high-desert scrub lands, a habitat that attracts a wonderful myriad of bird life.4 continued on page 32

JULY 2018 www.EnjoyMagazine.net


To reach these refuges, drive north on Interstate 5 to Highway 97 north out of Weed, to State Highway 161 north of Dorris, which runs along the California-Oregon border. Follow this road east about 9 miles to the Lower Klamath Auto Tour Route. Turn south, follow the road to the parking lot and find a fully involved Cliff Swallow nursery. Apply bug repellant and walk to the observation platform about a quarter-mile from the lot. From this platform, look for the always spectacular Yellow-headed Blackbird whistling from the reeds. Scan the sky for Bald and Golden Eagles. Here you will also find Marsh Wren, Red-winged Blackbird, Killdeer, Black-necked Stilt, White-faced Ibis, California and Ring-billed Gull, and Great Blue Heron, among many others. The Refuge Headquarters and Visitor Center next to the Tule Lake Refuge is a perfect next stop. Drive east on Highway 161 about 4½ miles to Hill Road. Turn south and drive about 2 miles to the Visitor Center parking lot. The center contains typical displays and recent sighting information, but a unique feature is the bird feeder display outside the center building. Microphones broadcast bird activity as they feed and frolic on the other side of a glass wall. Visitors may watch the birds up close without disturbing them.4 continued on page 34

From the Visitor Center, drive south on Hill Road to the Wildlife Overlook. Bring your binoculars and spotting scope and walk the constructed path to the wooden shelter on the shore of Tule Lake. Look for White Pelican rafting in groups on the water or soaring high overhead. Pie-billed, Clark’s, Western and Eared Grebe all occupy these waters, as do Double-crested Cormorant, Snow and Canada Goose, Gadwall, Mallard, Cinnamon Teal, Canvasback and Lesser Scaup. From the shelter door, scan the vertical ridge directly west for raptors and swallows. Next, drive a short way south on Hill Road and follow the signs for the 12-mile Auto Tour. Plan a few hours for this gravel road adventure, making frequent stops along the way to spot water and shore birds, song birds and raptors. Common Nighthawk patrolling in the middle of the day is not an uncommon sight. The last section of the


www.EnjoyMagazine.net JULY 2018

Auto Tour road crosses over high-desert sagebrush and juniper grassland habitats, punctuated by volcanic rock that borders Lava Beds National Monument. Scan for sparrows, towhees, warblers and other scrub-loving species. Raise your binoculars skyward to find raptors and acrobatic Common Raven. And enjoy the spectacular view from this spot. Continue on the Auto Tour road to find your way to paved road, that follow it north to Highway 139 and back to civilization. •

T O N S O F F U N T O B E H A D AT O A S I S F U N C E N T E R WHEN TREVOR SMITH left his hometown of Shasta Lake to pursue a career in the California Highway Patrol, he had no idea how short a pursuit that would be. Nor could you have convinced him seven years ago that he would abandon law enforcement to return to the family business, which has for decades been known to locals and visitors alike as the place to go for fun. Today, Smith is the hands-on owner of Oasis Fun Center, just west of Interstate 5 between Oasis Road and Pine Grove Avenue. You might see him spraying weeds along the fairway at the miniature golf course. You might see him checking in at the go-cart track, where racers of all ages fight for the lead on each 800-foot lap. Or his might be the smiling face behind the counter as he sells you an ice cream or soft drink. He knows this place well. “I grew up working here,” he says. “Pulling the weeds, sweeping the golf course. Little kid’s stuff. Working alongside my dad.” His father, Terry Smith, looks back on those years fondly. “He’s probably the best employee the Oasis Fun Center ever had,” he declares. “He didn’t complain. And he got exposed to an awful lot.”

“It was about more than fun,” Trevor explains. “I appreciated the ability to work and learn. I did concrete work, basic electrical and tons of painting. He trusted me with a backhoe. How many 16-year-olds get to do that?” The younger Smith says property has been renovated, the features updated on an ongoing basis, keeping up with new trends. “The only thing original is the light poles,” he says. “Our newest attractions are the escape rooms.” Between the race track and the golf course and adjoining bumper boat pool, the indoor portion of Oasis Fun Center is housed in a twostory building. The upper story is dedicated to a seven-hole miniature golf course, a contrast to the intertwined 18-holer outside, laced with lawn, fountains, streams and bridges. Downstairs, a bustling crowd finds fun in all directions. Dead center, they can choose between arcade games and booths with the tempting hooks to snag prizes. Over there, they line up for a 3D ride simulator. And behind that door over there lies the laser tag arena, a darkened, black-lighted maze where combating teams blast each other with glee.4 continued on page 38 JULY 2018 www.EnjoyMagazine.net


“There’s lots of stuff to do here,” says 11-year-old Samuel Schmidt, fresh off the air hockey table with his older brother. “It’s super fun.” He says for the last five years, laser tag was his favorite attraction, but now it’s the go carts. Mother Jennifer agrees: “There nothing more fun than racing your family.” The Schmidts had just celebrated a birthday in one of the two party rooms for rent. The other room looks recently abandoned as well, with half a Pizza Factory pepperoni pizza – which Oasis Fun Center supplies – left behind. With food and drink and a handful of tickets, visitors can enjoy hours of challenge and excitement here. Smith says that by the time he graduated from Central Valley High School in 2004, he was ready to leave. “I served a mission for my church in Brazil,” he recalls. “I came home and got married. I joined the CHP because of the lack of knowing what I wanted to do with myself. I hated college, and I looked for a way out.” His time with the CHP included seven years in Santa Cruz. During this time, his father began to grow weary from the rigors of running an amusement park and thought about retiring and selling it. His first choice for buyer was his son. “I declined and stayed in the CHP,” says Trevor. “But a few months passed, and I could not get the idea out of my head. I really didn’t

want this place to leave the family, because it was my life while I was growing up, and I thought I would like my children to have the same opportunity.” He finally decided to make the purchase because he saw Oasis Fun Center as a better way of life for his family – his wife and four kids, ages 6 and younger. He took ownership in January. Terry Smith, who now helps with the bookkeeping, says he had mixed feelings about the sale. “I was both very pleased and concerned at the same time,” he recalls. “I didn’t want him to step down in terms of his life quality. The CHP has job security, benefits.” “I don’t feel like it’s a risky venture,” assures the younger Smith. “It’s very well established. It’s been here a long time.” “It’s been good to our family,” nods his father. Trevor says the size of his daily crowds depends heavily on the weather. “I’m kind of like a reverse farmer,” he says with a laugh. “I pray for drought.”• Oasis Fun Center • 3330 Cascade Blvd. • Shasta Lake (530) 275-3042 • www.oasisfuncenter.com Hours: Monday - Saturday 10 am to midnight, Sunday noon to midnight

go wild W I L D F LO W E R S O F T H E T R I N I T Y A L P S

WHAT HAPPENS when a photographer fascinated by flowers joins forces with two forest botanists committed to correctness? “Wildflowers of the Trinity Alps” — a book of beauty and botanical integrity. The 334-page guidebook recently published by Backcountry Press showcases hundreds of wildflowers found in the Trinity Alps, Marble Mountains, Russian Wilderness and Trinity Divide. Beargrass, buckwheats, sandworts, violets, monkeyflowers and more grow in this botanically diverse region north and west of Redding.

The book was eight years in the making. But the story really begins much earlier, when author/nature photographer Ken DeCamp was just a kid. His dad worked as an engineering scout for dam projects, which meant frequent moves — as far away as Pakistan at one point. But when the outdoorsy family landed in tiny Lewiston in Trinity County in 1956, it became their home base. “I took my first backpacking trip into the Trinity Alps when I was 10 years old,” DeCamp says. “I fell in love with that area.” 4 continued on page 44

Cream cups

JULY 2018 www.EnjoyMagazine.net


He circled back to Trinity County after earning a geography degree from University of California, Davis. DeCamp worked in fire, land management planning and public relations for Shasta-Trinity National Forest Service for 38 years at Weaverville Ranger District and Redding headquarters. Retiring in 2007, he found more time for backpacking and photography — two things he loved. The more photos he took, the more he learned. “Snapshot photography doesn’t make it,” DeCamp says. “You need to carry a tripod. You need to pay attention to the camera settings. You need to pay attention to the light.” He invested in Nikon cameras. He read botanical manuals. He carried tripods of different heights. He brought a tarp to create shade for shooting. And he took things slowly. DeCamp is all about taking time to notice nature. “It’s not uncommon for me to spend 30 minutes on a flower. I like to move the camera around, try a lot of different settings. I’m a big fan of crawling around in the dirt. Sometimes that’s the only way you can find these things.” Soon he had many gigabytes — terabytes, actually — of images. So he decided to make a field guide. He brought the draft to “The Julies” — Shasta-Trinity National Forest botanist Julie Kierstead Nelson and retired Klamath National Forest botanist Julie Knorr. DeCamp knew both from his Forest Service days and wanted their professional feedback. He says they essentially told him, “No way.” The photography was beautiful but the book needed a botanical upgrade.

“We dumped the whole thing and started over again,” DeCamp says. A big challenge for Kierstead Nelson and Knorr in identifying and grouping the flower photos was the upending of plant nomenclature in recent years. The Jepson Manual is the authoritative resource on California flora, and times were simpler when the first edition was published in 1993. Plants were basically grouped by appearance. For example, Kierstead Nelson notes: “What we used to call the snapdragon family had penstemons, paintbrushes, owl’s clovers that seemed to hang together based on what they looked like.” Enter molecular biology. Analyzed at the genetic level, some lookalikes turned out not to be related. New species and subspecies have been identified, names changed and plant families blasted apart. “If you find out plants are not related, you cannot keep calling them the same thing,” Kierstead Nelson says. Changes in identities and classifications emerging from the turbulent taxonomical times were incorporated in the second edition of Jepson published in 2012. Making sure “Wildflowers of the Trinity Alps” included the updated names and families made for more work in the editing, organizing and indexing, but it also gives the wildflower guide an edge. “I’m not aware of any (other guide) on Northern California that is as comprehensive, current, and with such marvelous photos,” Kierstead Nelson says.4 continued on page 46

The book appeals to serious plant people as well as more casual flower fans. It has scientific and common names and features DeCamp’s welcoming writing. Huckleberries are “little blue treasures — the taste as delicious as the smell.” He describes tiny spiders inside western azalea blooms defending “their flowery homes with all the ferocity of a miniature charging bear.” Next to a snowbrush photo, DeCamp recalls how his father occasionally put the leaves under pack straps to enjoy their spicy scent as he hiked. DeCamp hopes the book encourages exploration and appreciation. Nature’s rewards are more than tall peaks, big lakes and grand vistas, he says. They also can be found in the details. 46

THERE ARE SOME 139,000 acres of redwood forests, pristine coastline, cultural resources and grassland prairies protected within the Redwood National and State Parks complex. It’s a big swath of Humboldt County history and it remains contentious 50 years after the park was established. All of which makes it the ideal focus for a new exhibit at the Clarke Historical Museum in Eureka. “It’s an enormous topic,” says Ben Brown, the Clarke’s executive director, “and it’s one that is still controversial.” “Redwoods Provide(d),” which opens July 7, will look at the two sides that fought for and against creating the Redwood National Park. “Reasons to support or oppose the park changed over the course of the decades-long debate surrounding the park’s establishment, and our exhibit strives to illuminate some of those reasonings,” Brown says. The exhibit is in keeping with the Clarke’s 58 years as

a historical and cultural hub in Eureka and its mission of preserving and presenting the region’s history and “providing a safe place where ideas and knowledge are shared and where we honor and learn from previous generations, helping to teach today’s youth as they become tomorrow’s leaders. At our core, the Clarke is an educational facility dedicated to fostering lifelong learning opportunities for all ages,” Brown says. Brown served as an intern at the museum years before he started work there in 2008 as the part-time curator of the museum’s Native American section while also working with the Wiyot and Karuk tribes. He was promoted to museum director in 2012. He notes with pride that with a collection of more than 120,000 items, the Clarke is the only museum in the area that covers the Humboldt region’s entire history, including Native American culture, the Gold Rush, the “red gold” of the redwood lumber industry, the livelihoods created from the sea, the railroad and farming.4 continued on page 50

JULY 2018 www.EnjoyMagazine.net


“Our motto is ‘history is for everyone.’ Accessibility and inclusivity are pillars of our mission to serve the community,” Brown says. Serving the community was clearly on the mind of Cecile Clarke, the late Eureka High School history teacher who sold the family’s sheep ranch and used the proceeds to purchase the old Bank of Eureka building and establish the museum in 1960. Clarke, who taught for 40 years, originally named the museum the Clarke Memorial Museum to honor her parents. It was renamed in 2001 and is now a privately operated non-profit organization. The bank, which opened in 1912, is an impressive example of a Classical Revival building. It was designed by Albert Pissis, a French-born architect who introduced the Beaux-Arts style to San Francisco and points north. It’s a beautiful building, and the museum’s most important artifact, but Brown says its upkeep needs, including repairs to the glazed terra-cotta exterior, present the museum with financial challenges. Just as the building speaks to Eureka’s colorful past, so do the museum’s exhibits. A vast collection

of Native American basketry, a detailed and extensive firearm collection and an impressive gathering of textiles, including more than five dozen quilts, all tell a story connected to Eureka’s history and culture. The region’s Native American history, which dates back thousands of years, is well represented at the Clarke with exhibits focusing on the Wiyot, Yurok, Karuk and Hupa tribes and the cultural and artistic traits that both connect and distinguish them. Basketry, ceremonial dresses, jewelry, beads, photographs, tools, weapons, smoking pipes and more are on display in the Nealis Hall wing of the museum. The Victorian era, reflected in Old Town Eureka’s architecture and the styles and fashions favored in the mid-19th century—and funded primarily by fleets of schooners that brought redwood lumber to San Francisco and returned with cash for timber barons like William Carson—is represented in the Clarke Museum. Brown takes justified pride in the artwork in the museum’s collection, including works by Cora



Drowning Prevention

Throughout the summer season, many Californians enjoy activities involving swimming at a pool, river, lake, waterpark or beach. There are NO WARNING or splashing SOUNDS associated with a drowning accident. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 10 people die from unintentional drownings every day in the United States. Drowning is a leading cause of injury-related deaths among ages five and under, with an average of 51 new deaths per year in California. SOME FACTS: • In general, boys are two times more likely to drown in a pool than girls. • 2/3 of fatal drownings occur between May & August for most age groups. SIGNS OF DISTRESS: • Head tilted back • Hair over forehead • Body is vertical • Can’t call for help • Can’t wave for help • Climbing ladder motion

Teach your child(ren) to swim at an early age, as backyard swimming pools account for over half of drowning deaths for children 0-5 years old each year. Install alarms on house doors and around pool the area. Never leave a child alone near water and always designate an adult to be close enough to reach out and touch the child. Adults should keep a constant eye on children in or near any water. This includes bathtubs, buckets, toilets, ponds, spas, pool, lakes and rivers. LAYERS OF PROTECTION Layers of protection include adult supervision, fences, gates, latches, safety pool covers, personal flotation devices, education, throwing aids, and rescue techniques. Do not be distracted by cell phone use. Immediate treatment consists of yelling for help, calling 911, and performing CPR.

Wright, considered one of the Humboldt region’s premier painters. An exhibit of her work, timed to mark her 150th birthday, will be on display this winter. “The Clarke Museum is lucky to have about two dozen of her pieces. Her work includes still-lifes as well as landscapes of the redwoods and the Klamath River area,” Brown says. The director says one of his favorite pieces is of Humboldt Bay from 1876 that was painted by Max Stocker. “It’s based on a sketch by a soldier stationed at Fort Humboldt in 1854 and shows how settlement had to be carved out of the woods, which initially went all the way to the bay. As Eureka grew, the forest receded to make room. The painting illustrates how small Eureka once was.” Eureka is much bigger these days, and to help share its myriad resources, the Clarke Museum welcomed the Eureka Visitors Center into its lobby last October. Alanna Powell, director of Humboldt Made, the

organization that operates the visitor center, says the collaboration makes it easier to showcase Eureka as a destination in its own right and its role as “the base camp for your redwood adventure.” “By combining these two organizations under one roof, we’re able to create a unique experience for visitors to this area, where professional concierges answer their questions on the best places to eat, stay and shop and directing them to all the incredible places and events this area offers, while grounding them in the history and culture of the area. By being located in Old Town Eureka, visitors are introduced to the best Eureka has to offer,” Brown says. •

Stem cells are precursor cells designed to be stimulated by the body’s future need to regenerate. In essence, these cells are “blank slates” that can become whatever the body needs. We naturally use them throughout our lives to replenish damaged areas and to keep ourselves functioning properly. Stem cells are capable of “turning into” tissue of various types when the body sends out biochemical messages that cause these cells to activate. Their role is to aid in the regeneration and regrowth of damaged or aging structures throughout our lives. Using your own stem cells, we may be able to help you with these issues:

LO C A L LY M A D E , A L L N AT U R A L I T ' S J E R K Y

SOLD IN 3,100 STORES in Western states, family-owned It’s Jerky shows that entrepreneurship is alive and well in Redding. Founded in 1996, Redding resident Jim Gurney was a truck driver and avid hunter, making jerky in his spare time. When Jim would go out hunting, he would get a deer, make some venison jerky out of it and give it to his fellow truck drivers. His co-workers loved it so much that Jim began running out of meat and started procuring it from local markets to continue his passion. However, he was making so much money selling jerky on the side that he eventually left his job as a truck driver to pursue making jerky full-time. The business steadily grew over the years and he soon relocated to a bigger storefront on 6854 Airport Road. Meanwhile, his son Dustin grew up in Redding, graduated from Anderson High School and studied business at Chico State University. He became the divisional manager for Wells Fargo, helping other businesses secure funding to follow

their dreams. While in that role, Dustin saw that his dad was struggling to keep up with the demand at It’s Jerky and felt like he could transfer his experience into the business that he knew quite well from his upbringing. In 2012, Dustin made his dad an offer to buy It’s Jerky, and took over the reins of the family business in 2013. Dustin put his entrepreneurship skills to work and was able to get his beef into more than 3,000 locations in five Western states (fun fact: The Enjoy Store in Redding was one of its first distributors). “I knew how to scale the business and I wanted to keep it in my hometown,” says Dustin. He buys all of his meat from California, and uses only the best pieces of select top round low-fat cuts. The product line includes six jerkies and four beef sticks. The Honey Pepper is the most popular product, but the Thick-n-Zesty is Dustin’s favorite. “The product sells itself, no nitrates, all organic,” Dustin says.4 continued on page 56

JULY 2018 www.EnjoyMagazine.net


It’s Jerky ships 15,000 pounds of meat per month, but Dustin says it wouldn’t have been possible without the combined effort of the rest of his staff. In order to grow, his team was able to dial in It’s Jerky’s manufacturing and packaging processes. Their dedication to be as efficient as possible led to profits and the ability to keep up with the demand of jerky connoisseurs in the United States. To keep up with the demand, It’s Jerky recently moved into a larger facility on Crossroads Drive next to Rare Air Trampoline Park. The move will open up an opportunity for It’s Jerky to meet its nationwide distribution goal of getting into 10,000 stores in 25 states (increasing from a 1,200-square-foot facility into a 5,000-square-foot one). “We want to continue to expand, offer good jobs, good wages, and stay in Redding,” he says. “We’ve been offered distribution in the Midwest and East Coast, but right now we don’t want to bite off more than we can chew,” Dustin says. Putting 50 to 70 hours a week into the business, Dustin manages the operations and his wife Jamie helps out with the financial side. He says his favorite part of owning his It’s Jerky is being able to make a change at the drop of a hat. “In the corporate world, you have to go up the chain of command, which can take weeks. If there’s something we don’t like here, we can change it in five minutes. We focus on production and profit, treating people right,” he says. There is

56 56www.EnjoyMagazine.net www.enjoymagazine.netJULY JULY 2018 2018

no time to spare in the jerky world – taking four weeks to fix a problem can kill the bottom line. “We’re hardworking people. I’m going to grow this business, but I can’t do it without my employees. I’m blessed that I have a good team. Two managers have been with me since I bought the business and they’ll help me take it farther,” he says. It also helps having winning recipes. Biting into a Honey Pepper beef stick, Redding resident Richard Anderson says, “I remember years ago when Jim was selling his jerky at the Shasta District Fairgrounds. It is still so good.” It’s Jerky is definitely on the up and up, but Dustin says his biggest accomplishment so far is building a successful business in Redding. “As long as you have work ethic and constant dedication to the business then you can do anything,” Dustin says. • www.itsjerky.com

B I G S A M ' S F U N K Y N AT I O N TO P L AY AT F O R T H E F U N K O F I T M U S I C F E S T I VA L IMAGES OF BRASS BANDS marching through the streets, particularly in conjunction with jazz funerals and second line parades, have come to represent the distinctiveness of New Orleans. Typically, the brass band is made up of a tuba, trombones, trumpets, clarinet and/or saxophone, snare drum and bass drum. The portability of the ensemble has allowed those bands to travel beyond the streets and onto the stages of neighborhood barrooms, concert halls and international festivals. The history and significance of these musical groups continues to evolve. Led by trombonist and singer Sam Williams, Big Sam’s Funky Nation draws heavily on the New Orleans brass band culture with a horn-heavy front section, as well as the bootyshaking funk of The Meters and The Neville Brothers.

Born and raised in New Orleans, Sam grew up just six blocks away from famous Uptown music hall Tipitina’s. “It was hood. It’s a lot different now because of gentrification. But it was a great community full of love. Everyone looked out for each other. By playing on these streets, you learned how to work your craft and entertain an audience. It comes naturally in New Orleans. I’ve been here my whole life and rocking these streets. Even during Hurricane Katrina, I drove nine hours from San Antonio every weekend for two years just to play live.” Though Williams grew up hearing music in the streets, he didn’t pick up an instrument until middle school. He joined the marching band and was given a slide trombone, discovering he could more or less play it right off the bat.4 continued on page 60

“I went home and played two tunes by ear: ‘When the Saints Go Marching In’ and ‘Wild Thing’. Who would have thought that it would end up being my way of life?” His music history began with the Lil Stooges Brass Band and the Soul Rebels. While working with those groups, he remembers going to a birthday party at Dirty Dozen trumpeter Efrem Towns’ house. When he discovered he was in the home of one of his musical idols, he walked up to Towns and said, “If you ever need a trombone player, please call me.” And down the road, he recalls, “I got a call from the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. They wanted me to go on tour with them, and they were leaving the next day.” He ended up playing with the Dirty Dozen for the next four years. Due to his popularity as a horn player, by 2006, he was playing with Elvis Costello and Allen Toussaint on their Grammy-nominated “The River in Reverse” album and performing with them on their international tour. Following that experience, Williams got the itch to do his own thing. He began to work on his own side project, Big Sam’s Funky Nation. “When I started the band, I wanted people to know that a trombonist can front a band, we don’t have to be just sitting in the background. I wanted people to say, ‘Hey, the trombone isn’t a geeky instrument anymore. It’s pretty hot; it’s pretty cool.’” Sam’s trombone work still stands front and center, though it is most prominent on the instrumental cuts where he stretches out and struts his stuff. He’s glad to be a part of the movement that has helped increase the popularity of the ‘bone. Big Sam ensures you’re not just a part of the crowd, but a part of the show through dancing and singing along. Williams learned his own ultra-smooth footwork when he was getting his feet wet with the Soul Rebels, participating in their hot steps and choreography. “Before that, I was the shy kid. I didn’t say much, I just played my horn. They brought the dance out of me and later, I was dancin’ on all of the Dozen’s shows. Eventually, it became part of what I do. I broke out of my shell.” Funky Nation recently released its sixth full-length album, “Songs in the Key of Funk, Volume 1.” The resulting album is a simmering mix of the many styles of music that make New Orleans the heart and soul of American culture: funk, jazz, brass bands, bounce, rap, R&B and even rock and roll. Big Sam’s Funky Nation aims for the heart by using its music to urge us to take a breather and celebrate being alive. • Big Sam’s Funky Nation • Saturday, August 11 For The Funk Of It Music Festival, Belden (Plumas County) www.ftffest.com Phil Reser has written stories on major American rock and music acts for newspapers, magazines and radio stations since receiving his journalism degree from San Francisco State University.

say Cheese A H I S T O R Y O F Q U A L I T Y P R O D U C T S AT R U M I A N O C H E E S E C O M PA N Y CHEDDAR, SWISS, GOUDA, PARMESAN. We all know that the best cheese, like a good wine, ages gracefully – heck, even cheddar can age up to five, six years – but California-based Rumiano Cheese Company is taking aging gracefully to another level. For nearly 100 years, the Rumiano family has made a name for itself making and distributing cheese, but were it not for a major world event of the early 20th century, three Rumiano brothers may never have founded one of the largest cheese companies in California. According to Baird Rumiano, his grandfather and his grandfather’s brothers came to the United States to work in Amador County in the gold mines, when World War I broke out. “They moved to San Francisco and worked in the shipyards, but they always wanted to have a dairy like they did back in Italy,” he says. The brothers saved and bought property in Willows, began milking cows, and in 1919 they began distributing milk around the town. “They had more milk than they could bottle, so they started making butter, and in 1920, ‘21, they had even more calves,” continues Rumiano. “So one of the brothers went to UC Davis and took a short course in cheese making.”4 continued on page 64

Good that they did. By 1940, because of another world event, Rumiano Cheese Company became the third-largest cheese manufacturer in the United States and the largest in California. “They were supplying American-style cheese, like slices, and making it for the armed forces to put in K rations,” explains Rumiano. Following the war, business slowed down, and the family even considered liquidating the business. Then in the 1970s, Rumiano began working for his family, which would mark a turning point for the company. During the ‘70s the remaining factory was located in Crescent City, and when the manager fell sick with cancer, Rumiano was sent to help out. “I’d never worked before for my father. I’d never even made cheese before. I didn’t know what the hell I was doing,” he says with a laugh. “I got there and the manager died about three weeks later, and I’ve been here ever since. That was 45 years ago.” Then in 1978, Rumiano’s father passed away, and by 1980 he and his brother bought the company from the remaining family members. By the early 1980s, the third-generation Rumiano brothers began making changes to the company, including retrofits to the Crescent City plant. “We put in a wastewater treatment facility, so now we treat all our own waste here, and as it goes out, the water is cleaner than when it goes in,” says Rumiano. “We actually reduced our water consumption from 50,000 gallons a day to 20,000.” They also added a protein concentrate plant that makes butter from fat separated from whey protein, and a lactose plant that dries lactose through reverse osmosis. “With the water that comes off that, we use it to wash our equipment down,” adds Rumiano. But more than retrofits, Rumiano Cheese Company is building on its legacy through investing in the multiple generations of its employees and partners.

“My brother and I, we are 68 and 65, so it’s pretty much going to be handed over to our boys in the next few years, and they’ll be fourth generation. Then I have a new granddaughter and she’ll be the fifth,” says Rumiano. “It was like starting over in 1980, but now you’ll have four cousins working together. Who knows what that will bring?” And when asked what’s greatest about working in a multigenerational company, Rumiano doesn’t hesitate to say the employees. “I have employees right now celebrating their 40th anniversary with me, and I have fathers who became grandfathers and their grandsons are working here – father-son combos, and cousins – it’s a great group of people. “We’re also buying milk from four generations of dairymen,” continues Rumiano. “Some of these dairies in Crescent City have been here since 1855.” That’s the kind of growth that goes beyond economic success, but it also doesn’t hurt that the two go hand in hand. “When I first came here, we made 3 million pounds of cheese and now we make 12 million,” says Rumiano. “And our product, thank God, is in high demand. We put a lot of love and effort into our product here.” And that heart transforms into everything from organic to natural cheeses, like smoked mozzarella and cheddar, Gouda and havarti. And as might be expected, Rumiano himself is a big fan of those cheeses, and always has them on stock, but when asked his personal favorite, well, he suggests the dry jack. • www.rumianocheese.com Jordan Venema is a freelance writer and California native.

Conservation of the land ensures that other generations will be provided the same opportunity to appreciate and enjoy public lands. Four systems take care of America’s federal public lands: The National Forest System at 36,155,817 acres, Bureau of Land Management at 8,752,349 acres, the National Wildlife Refuge System at 20,702,488 acres and the National Park System at 43,890,368 acres.

Living in the North State comes with many perks, including its natural beauty. Easily accessible activities include camping, fishing, hunting, boating, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, off-highway vehicles, mountain biking, hiking, photography, birding, wildlife viewing and climbing. Activities continue with all types of winter sports including skiing, snowmobile riding and cross country skiing. Our public lands offer several cultural heritage sites along with stunning natural landscapes. The wild lands provide inspiration to explore and create your own adventure. Local awe-inspiring public areas include the Sacramento River Bend Natural Area, Reading Island Recreational Site, Sacramento River Trail, Chappie-Shasta Off-Highway Vehicle Area, Fort Sage Off-Highway Vehicle Area, Bizz Johnson National Recreation Trail, Jelly’s Ferry River Access, Shasta Campground, Girard Ridge Rental Lookout, Contara/Ney Springs Wildlife Area, Bizz Johnson National Recreation Trail, Clear Creek Preserve, Hornbeck Trail, the Sacramento Ditch Trail, Battle Creek Wildlife Area and Old Shasta. Some areas offer interpretive displays, guided hikes, salmon viewing and historical locations and artifacts. For example, the Hornbeck Trail runs the path of the historic mining railroad along the banks of the Sacramento River. The Bizz Johnson National Recreation Trail follows the Southern Pacific Railroad along Susanville River, winding through the canyon with 12 bridges and trestles. In the fall, the leaves change colors, and their beauty appeared in Rails-To-Trails Conservancy’s 1997 “Fall Foliage on the Web” rail-trails guide. Many areas have riparian forests, marshes and oak woodlands all with stories of history waiting to be discovered. The Shasta Land Trust was founded in 1998 and has protected nearly 25,000 acres of farm land, open-space and wildlife habitat in the North State. The trust works with landowners, communities, partners and donors to conserve local lands. "Only with the guidance of Shasta Land Trust could the 80-mile Great Shasta Rail Trail become a reality," says April Gray of the Great Shasta Trail Rail Trail. Executive Director Paul Vienneau adds, "Through 16 new projects over the next three years, the Shasta Land Trust will play a significant role in conserving thousands of acres of land that will be open to public access. Our public land is vital to who we are as residents of

TRAVELERS ALONG Interstate 5 cannot help but notice the tall, inviting electronic sign urging motorists to stop at the Olive Pit Store & Restaurant in Corning. Situated right off the Corning Road exit, the Olive Pit may not look impressive from the freeway, yet inside, visitors enter the marvelous world of olives. Most newcomers to the establishment head immediately for the free olive bar, where one can sample a variety of locally grown and processed gourmet olives. Best sellers are almond stuffed, green, garlic stuffed and kalamata olives. Some exciting newer varieties include habanero stuffed, smoked pitted, Texas hot chili pitted and even blue cheese stuffed spicy olives.

The story of Olive Pit begins immediately after World War II, when Pete Craig returned home from service in the Pacific. Ron Craig, Pete’s son, tells what happened next: “Pete and his three brothers brought their parents from Oakland to Corning and purchased land at the southwest corner of Solano Street and Toomes Avenue, where they hand-built (with the help of their uncles who were tradesmen from Scotland) the Craig Bros. Shell gas station and homes on the same parcel for their parents and three brothers.” Within a short time, Pete met and married Ann, a former resident of the Bay Area who originally hailed4 continued on page 74

from Oklahoma. When World War II broke out, Ann moved to Richmond where she worked as a “Wendy the Welder” at the Kaiser shipyards. While she helped build the ships, Pete sailed on one of them. Together they purchased a small farm and olive orchard just outside of Corning. With an eye on the news that the government was planning to construct an interstate highway right next to the town, the Craig brothers purchased a plot of land on the projected Corning exit site – the northeast corner of Edith and Solano streets. The brothers figured motorists needed gas, so they opened a Shell gas station in 1965. Within a couple of years Pete and Ann, who had bought the lot next to the Shell station, decided to open a business. At first, they believed a hand-operated car wash would be a logical fit. Pete worked hard to make a go of it. In a short time, they decided to sell retail, so the Olive Pit next offered olives along with ice cream and other small food items. As traffic on Interstate 5 grew, so did the Olive Pit’s business. With the recognition that Corning was the “heart of the olive country,” the Olive Pit became a wellknown name throughout the Sacramento Valley. More varieties of olives became available and gourmet olive oils became a big seller at the Olive Pit as part of a trend seen regionally and nationally. Last year, the Olive Pit celebrated its 50th anniversary. The store continues to draw large crowds, particularly on the weekends. Additions to their vast array of olives and olive oils include gourmet mustard and horseradish, jams, jellies, tea, honey and syrup – even salsa sauces. Their enterprise is one worth recognizing. Not only have they succeeded economically, but they are truly a family business. Over the years, Pete and Ann’s children, Allan, Bonnie and Ron, worked at the Olive Pit. Bonnie and Ron are still active in the business. Grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews help to carry on the familyowned and operated tradition. Stop by and see this historic olive store. After you buy your favorite variety of olives, try one of their delicious muffuletta sandwiches and top it off with a fabulous signature shake – it’s a treat for the whole family. • Olive Pit • 2156 Solano St, Corning • (530) 824-4667 www.olivepit.com

REMEMBER C E O M A N DY S TA L E Y P R E PA R E S F O R T H E 9 8 T H A N N UA L T E H A M A C O U N T Y FA I R RED BLUFF will be covered in burlap sacks and cowboy hats from July 19-22, when the Tehama District Fair gets under way for its 98th year. Many people hope attendance will be high, but none more so than Mandy Staley, the fair’s Chief Executive Officer. “When I grew up, everyone went to the local fair,” says Staley. “My goal is to bring that feeling back here.” The 33-year-old Cottonwood native took the reins in April 2016, following a stint as the manager of the Equestrian Center at Rolling Hills in Corning. “I went from a place that had plenty of funds to a place that had no funds,” she says with a laugh. The challenge

of moving the fairgrounds into a profitable event center for the community is part of the job’s appeal. “The community in Red Bluff is strong,” she says. “It’s such a big part of the fairgrounds.” California fairs were dealt a large blow when they lost state funding to operate and had to start generating their own revenue. “Last year is the first year in nine years that the fair had operated in a positive rather than a negative,” she says, crediting her years growing up in the rodeo business for providing the business acumen to create such an accomplishment.4 continued on page 80

JULY 2018 www.EnjoyMagazine.net

Staley’s childhood was spent not only attending the Shasta District Fair in Anderson as an attendee but as a 4-H and FFA member competing with livestock, as well as the daughter of rodeo stock contractors Jeff and Terri Davis of Four Star Rodeo. “We were the contract help going to the fairs, and now I’m hiring the contract help,” she says. Moving the fairgrounds into a profitable venture and ensuring the community maximizes the facility’s potential means keeping the place as busy as possible. “My goal is to bring in as many large events as I can,” she says. Events such as a four-day gypsy horse show, California Junior High Rodeo Finals and Gold Country Cutting Horse Association competitions augment more well-known events such as the Bull & Gelding Sale and Red Bluff Round Up. They also bring visitors to Tehama County for multiple days. “Last year, we did 237 events,” she adds. Creating a memorable experience at the annual fair, however, is the goal at hand this month. “Saturday night, our entertainment is cage fights,” she says, noting that this is a new attraction. There will be a Mexican fiesta and4 continued on page 82

rodeo as well as a hypnotist, motocross stunt riders, and water rides to cool people off. “There’s a lot of family stuff,” says Staley. “Fair is crazy expensive to put on but we try to keep the cost as low as possible so everyone can attend.” As part of her outreach to the community, Staley collaborates with the summer programming of the Safe Education and Recreation for Rural Families after-school program coordinated by the Tehama County Department of Education. Students at each program site decorate wheelbarrows for the fair and then take a field trip to see their work and other exhibits, taking in a few carnival rides, as well. When the fair starts, Staley will have an idea of what fair parents experience as they haul kids and animals to stalls and showrings and set up displays in the exhibit halls. She changes hats in June at the Shasta District Fair for her own children, Jayda, 10, and Jordyn, 8. “I get to go to Anderson to be fair mom,” she says. “They show there.”


www.EnjoyMagazine.net JULY 2018

While she doesn’t have as much time to spend with her parents on the rodeo trail as she’d like, she does manage to get some barrel race competitions in from time to time. Her husband, Robert, a cattle rancher, also ropes at rodeos. Staley knows the power of fairgrounds to develop a child, a family and a community. They aren’t only a force for economic development, but a place for family and friends to gather in celebration, share knowledge and develop skills. For these reasons and many more, she hopes the community will come out and see what the Tehama District Fair is all about. • Tehama District Fair • July 19-22, 2018 650 Antelope Blvd, Red Bluff www.tehamadistrcitfair.com

We had a lot of advice, but nothing prepared us more than actually getting out there and hitting the road. We have a system down, so here’s some tried-and-true tips on traveling with your dog. First off, make sure your pet is healthy and well enough to travel. If necessary, visit your veterinarian for a check-up, any prescription refills and to make sure vaccinations are up to date. Get a digital record or ask for two copies, then put one in the glove compartment with your insurance and registration. Depending on how far you travel or which states you visit, you may have to show proof of vaccination. In addition to bringing an ample food supply, prep a doggie travel kit with treats, bowls, favorite toys/balls, collar and leash, brush/ comb, towels, lots of pet waste bags and a favorite pillow or bed. Sidonie, our German Shepherd, is 75 pounds, and we make room to get her entire pet bed in the SUV. We also suggest getting a pet firstaid kit to leave in the vehicle. Drinking water is tricky. Like people, dogs can get sick from strange water supplies, so a case of bottled water is the best way to go. When prepping our vehicle, we cover all flat surfaces with large black trash bags, then a layer of sheets or blankets. Marley is our German Pointer, and she’s a great traveler, but did get carsick a few times during our early road trips. Cleanup is easy when you can just

fold a blanket up, put it into a plastic bag and seal it up until you reach your destination. That destination is the key to a good road trip. Camping is good where dogs are allowed, but make sure you are aware of the risks from contact with wild animals and bodies of water. Beaches are good, too, but you have to check ahead. Many beaches in California are not dogfriendly, and you want to make sure your dog is in a safe swimming/ play area if they enter the water. Test it out with them on the leash first. If you’ll be outdoors a lot, make sure your dog has a flea/tick collar or other parasite prevention. Pet-friendly hotels are now pretty easy to find, but nothing beats visiting a friend or family member who’s also a dog lover. While traveling, remember to stop every couple of hours for a potty break and some outdoor play time. Even though they sleep a lot, most puppies are not good travelers. The prerequisite for a doggy road trip is being potty trained and able to walk on a leash. If you can’t take him/her to the vet or pet store without an accident, your dog is probably not ready for a road trip. If you are using a crate/kennel, make sure it’s well ventilated and big enough for your dog to stand up and turn completely around. Never leave your dog in the car unattended. Many websites list pet-friendly hotels, beaches, restaurants, campgrounds, etc. Try www.petswelcome.com or www.bringfido.com for help in locating these resources. • Patrick John has been working the radio airwaves in Redding for 22 years as co-host of Billy & Patrick Mornings.

recipe JULY 2018

GRILLED GREEK CHICKEN SOUVLAKI SERVES 4 Fire up the grill – it’s time for Greek Chicken! This is an easy and delicious dish, full of flavor and it turns out really moist. Skewers make it easy, and using bell peppers and onions on both ends of each skewer will help the end pieces from drying out. Heat all burners, but turn all but two off to grill. This works great with whole chicken breasts, too, as it helps to prevent dry meat. The sauce is very easy, but if you want a shortcut, Trader Joe’s Tzatziki is delicious! Happy grilling! MARINADE INGREDIENTS: Zest and juice of 2 lemons, about 1⁄4 cup 3 1⁄ cup olive oil 3 cloves of garlic, minced 1 T red wine vinegar 2 tsp. Italian or Greek dried seasoning 2 tsp. salt Freshly ground pepper SKEWER INGREDIENTS: 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed in two-inch pieces 1 red bell pepper, chopped in 1- to 2-inch pieces 1 green bell pepper, chopped in 1- to 2-inch pieces 1⁄2 red onion, cubed 1 lemon, halved and rubbed with olive oil on the flesh side SAUCE INGREDIENTS: 1 English cucumber, peeled if desired 3 cloves of garlic, minced 2 cup plain Greek yogurt 1 tsp. lemon zest 3 T lemon juice 1⁄2 tsp. fresh dill, chopped 1⁄4 tsp. fresh mint, finely chopped Pinch of salt

DIRECTIONS FOR THE MARINADE: STEP 1: In a glass bowl, add marinade ingredients and whisk to combine. Remove 1/4 cup and set aside for after the chicken is cooked. Put the remaining marinade in a ziptop bag, add the chicken and seal shut. Allow the chicken to marinade for 30 minutes in the fridge. DIRECTIONS FOR THE SAUCE: STEP 1: Cut off the ends of the cucumber, and then slice in half lengthwise. Use a spoon and slide it down the center of the cucumber, removing the seeds. Finely chop the cucumber, place in two paper towels and squeeze out the moisture as much as possible. In a bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients and then add the cucumber and combine. Store in refrigerator until serving.. DIRECTIONS FOR THE SKEWERS: STEP 1: Using a gas grill, turn to high heat and allow the grill to heat up as the skewers are assembled. Thread bell pepper and onion on the skewers followed by chicken, and top off with more pepper and onion until all vegetables and chicken are used. Set aside, on a tray, until ready to grill.

STEP 2: Once ready to grill, turn off all but two burners and place the skewers and the lemon halves on the grill. Turn the heat to medium. Grill the meat, turning often, until grill marks appear. Move to the warm side of the grill to finish cooking, about 15 minutes start to finish. Remove the meat to a platter and tent with foil for 5-10 minutes to allow juices to redistribute. STEP 3: Drizzle with the reserved marinade and squeeze the grilled lemons over the chicken and veggies. Serve with sauce in a pita or on flat bread.

Congratulations Class of 2018 Students Recognized for Higher Education Commitment at First Ever College Signing Day Reach Higher Shasta took a giant step forward in promoting post-secondary education for our Shasta County students by hosting our county’s first ever College Signing Day event. Area high schools forwarded student names and post-secondary institutions that were confirmed in April. Students and their parents were invited to a celebration at the Cascade Theatre on May 16th. Seniors were introduced on center stage and were recognized for their commitment to further their education at a university, community college, trade school, or military enlistment. The celebratory vibe was both inspiring and rewarding! College Signing Events are occurring across our country as a way to encourage the pursuit of education past high school in order to increase competitiveness for employment in today’s economy. According to Georgetown Public Policy Institute, Center on Education and Workforce, 65% of all jobs in 2020 will

require post-secondary education and training past high school. Consequently, Reach Higher Shasta’s Executive Committee is striving to impress upon Shasta County parents that encouraging our children to pursue professional training or higher education is vital to their opportunity to thrive as adults. We are extremely proud to report students from the Class of 2018 will represent Shasta County at a wide range of institutions which include: Stanford, MIT, West Point, Santa Clara, Gonzaga, University of California Los Angeles, Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, Santa Barbara, UNR, Grand Canyon, Biola, Cal Poly SLO, Cal State Univ., Chico, Sacramento, and Sonoma, Simpson, Grinnell, Southern Methodist, Shasta College, American River & Butte Comm.

This is what birthed the Can Do Spirit, a nonprofit organization that he co-founded with Rose Galen to help others through the struggle of learning how to live in their “new normal.” Despite the heartache, financial depletion and continued hurdles Webb and Galen had to endure, their passion and commitment drove them onward toward their goal to make a difference in the lives of veterans and their families. Today, the Can Do Spirit in Redding serves veterans and their caregivers and families by providing programs that help remove daily hardships and barriers. The

organization’s goal is to foster independence back into the lives of those returning home after a life-changing accident. The organization is connected with other area nonprofits and volunteers who have a heart for helping veterans. Such unique partnerships with businesses and volunteers are what keep the Can Do Spirit an active piece of the community. To support the Can Do Spirit, you can get involved through their Partnership Program or donate money, supplies or even real estate. In the past, gifting real estate has allowed the nonprofit to acquire overlooked properties, flip them to raise the value and increase the benefit from the donation while improving the surrounding community.
