CONTAMINATION DESTROYS RUGS!
That’s right, contamination destroys your rugs! Abrasive soil, urine, airborne pollutants, smoke, beetles, water damage and mildew degrade and deteriorate any area rug, and especially natural fiber rugs. To Beautify and Restore your Woven Treasures, we carefully inspect and treat your rugs to decontaminate them. Our 4-part washing process utilizes a total immersion cleaning system, enabling us to clean, deodorize, and sanitize both the face yarns and foundation. Don’t wait until it’s too late! Once mildew or other contaminants destroy your rug, it will simply fall apart and become less valuable. Call now for a Free Consultation!

editor’s note january 2019
WE’RE CELEBRATING the start of a brand-new year – let’s flourish and thrive in 2019! Sure, a few of us will probably dust off those tried-and-true resolutions that we revisit every year – exercise more, drink more water, reduce our screen time. But we have some fresh, meaningful new ideas for living your best life, from building a nest egg to saying “no” when you need to. What will be your first step toward building a healthier you? If your diet could use a tune-up, take a stroll through Country Organics. These fine folks work with about 40 local vendors and farmers to provide delicious, fresh, organic food for their customers. And if you’re looking for some comfort food, give our favorite foodie’s turkey chili recipe a spin – it’s got all the flavor and none of the guilt of traditional chili. Want to increase your physical activity but need a little nudge? We know some guys you should meet. We’ll give you a peek into the philosophies of Matthew Lister of Align, Steve Westlake from Maxim Physical Therapy and the folks from Red Bluff’s Physical Therapy and Wellness Center, who each have unique approaches to wellness, but all have an unwavering commitment to helping their clients build healthier bodies. Giving from the heart also boosts your mental wellness, and the NorCal Retired Coaches Association can attest to that. They’re no longer putting in the miles on the sidelines, but they’re still making a huge impact on North State student athletes by giving away more than $140,000 in scholarships. Happy New Year, and enjoy!

my town DR. ANDREW SOLKOVITS FAMILY PHYSICIAN CALIFORNIA FAMILY MEDICAL GROUP
HOW DO I SEE MY TOWN: A FAMILY When I came to Redding 28 years ago as a young physician, I had started a family with a desire to raise my daughter in a safe, family-oriented place. Being a physician with a want to build a comprehensive family practice, Mercy Redding Family Practice Residency Program was an ideal opportunity. I immediately entered into what I still consider a family by joining the medical community in Redding. During completion of residency, my family expanded from the medical community to neighbors and patients as my medical office grew. My children were raised in this supportive city that continues to have a small-town feel as well as genuine relationships. Being exposed to the people of Redding and surrounding areas such as Anderson, Shasta Lake City, Cottonwood, Bella Vista, Old Shasta and Palo Cedro, my relationships continued to grow to include a wider, more diverse population. The growth of Redding never changed the small-town feel which was exhibited by many examples of unselfish behavior, supportive actions and sharing as you would expect from family. Receiving home-cooked meals from neighbors and patients during my daughtersâ€™ births, holidays and other events are examples of the giving and care that has never stopped. This has been proved by the community with many fundraising and support groups, ranging from cancer awareness to programs aiding the homeless shelters. To this day, the generosity and compassion exists as seen by the recent tragic events that have surrounded our community. As a family practitioner, I have been fortunate enough to serve Redding and the local areas through leadership and participation. I have been able to aid in the growth of a family-oriented community. With Redding leading as an example of community, I have been able to carry the culture into my work place. Through California Family Medical Group, I have been lucky enough to serve Redding and surrounding areas by creating a work family of likeminded individuals who have helped establish a safe, inviting place to care for other families. From childbirth to end of life, we have been lucky enough to serve our patients and create relationships that travel beyond the front door. I am proud to call this community my family.

flourish & thrive L I V I N G YO U R B E S T L I F E I N 2 0 1 9 IT DOESN’T TAKE fancy clothes, sparkling diamonds, expensive trips or popped champagne bottles to live your best life. It simply takes a commitment to making life choices that bring you peace, clarity of mind and happiness. It may seem like a lofty task, but it can be done – and the start of the new year is the perfect time to do it. Follow along as we outline nine ways to live your best life in 2019. LEARN HOW TO SAY “NO.” It’s the shortest, simplest word, but it’s often the hardest to say. Mastering the fine art of “no” isn’t an opportunity to be contrary or dismissive, but it is an effort to preserve your sanity by not overextending yourself. One of the most frustrating, regret-inducing feelings in the world is overcommitting when you are busy. It builds unnecessary resentment for loved ones when you sign yourself up to do things you don’t have the time or energy for. Is it a big event? You probably can’t bypass a wedding or a funeral, but if it’s the monthly family dinner that will conflict with some much-needed rest or something more pressing, your family will understand if you have to sit this one out. Be honest and let them know you’ve got a few things that need your attention. Don’t feel guilty if the thing that needs attention is you. TAKE “ME TIME” AS NEEDED. It isn’t selfish or frivolous to take a few moments to yourself to recharge. Taking a mental, emotional and physical break from others is absolutely necessary to be able to continue to show the most genuine (not obligatory) love to your dear ones. It doesn’t need to be anything major to help restore you to your former glory. An extra 30 minutes to read and enjoy your coffee in peace, an overnight stay in a hotel to store up a few extra hours of sleep, or an afternoon of shopping can bring you back to a happy, healthy square one.4 continued on page 24

DO WHAT YOU LOVE AND LOVE WHAT YOU DO. It’s been said that if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. While many of us have too many responsibilities to quit our jobs to live our dream of becoming a full-time travel blogger or a race car driver, we can commit to working a job that brings us some measure of joy. Going to a job you hate every day creates stress – and stress has a direct correlation to illness. If the job isn’t for you, look for the windows of opportunity around you. When you find the one with the most promising outlook, close the door on the job that isn’t working for you.

Speak with a financial advisor about investing the money in a way that acknowledges your desired level of risk and time commitment. GET RID OF THINGS YOU DON’T NEED. There is a burden in having too much stuff. Not only can clean and like-new items you don’t use anymore be a blessing to someone in need through donation, but they can also help to subsidize your income. Consider putting unwanted clothing, accessories, home décor and furniture on consignment or list them on sites with buyers looking for that type of product. Put the money toward something you need, save it or donate it to charity.
... the way to thrive is to help others thrive; the way to flourish is to help others flourish; the way to fulfill yourself is to spend yourself.
EAT AND DRINK WHAT WORKS FOR YOU. Skip the crash diets and temporary binges and find your way to foods that make you feel your best. If there is a particular food that makes you miserable, cut it out of your life. Look for reasonable SPEAK UP FOR YOURSELF – substitutes and refuse to purchase the and others.

TEAM WORK MAXIM PHYSICAL THERAPY BY CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATES, Steve Westlake and his co-workers at Maxim Physical Therapy have used roughly 350 miles of athletic tape in the 30 years he’s been involved with helping student athletes in the North State. Add in the miles of pre-wrap (a layer under the tape) and you’re talking about a round-trip taping trip between Redding and Corvallis, Ore. The 1980 Shasta High School graduate returned to the North State in 1988 after playing baseball and completing studies at the University of the Pacific. He worked for the San Francisco 49ers for a time, but returned home to work with Hal Williams at Redding Physical Therapy. “Hal had this sports medicine relationship with some of the area coaches,” Westlake says. “It was getting out of hand with the facility being bombarded, and when I came on, one of Hal’s requests was, ‘Can we put a foundation on this program?’” After reaching out to the schools, the program grew. When another Shasta High grad, Jim Tomasin, returned home from playing football and studying at the University of
California at Davis, it “mushroomed into what it is now,” said Westlake, a certified athletic trainer and physical therapy assistant. Maxim, Westlake, Tomasin and staff work to cover games at Shasta, Enterprise, Central Valley, University Preparatory, Anderson and Foothill high schools, in addition to treating middle-school athletes. From football to basketball to soccer and wrestling, the Maxim team and students in the district’s sports medicine program staff games to ensure athletes are taped and assess injuries should they happen. Additionally, there are dedicated sports medicine training rooms on the Shasta and Enterprise campuses that Westlake and Tomasin staff on Tuesdays and Thursdays. “When I was in high school, there was nothing like this,” Westlake said. “Coaches did the taping and I remember that Bob Beale always did an excellent job.” But, Westlake adds, one of the benefits of the program is it takes that burden off the coaches and other staff.4 continued on page 30 JANUARY 2019 www.EnjoyMagazine.net
“It allows coaches to worry about coaching, administrators to run the event and even Mom and Dad to just sit back and enjoy the game,” he said. Shasta football coach JC Hunsaker says the Maxim presence takes a “whole lot of stress off me on Friday and throughout the week.” “You honestly can’t put a value on what he does day-today for the program and more importantly the athlete,” Hunsaker says. “He’s a huge part of our program and the success of our program.” The program is funded through the Shasta and Enterprise booster clubs and the district pays a stipend as it recognizes the Maxim staff is giving up clinic time to be at the schools. “I know he’s not getting rich off us,” Hunsaker joked. “Fortunately for the athletes, we do enough (financially).” The economic trade-off isn’t equal, but Westlake
Steve Westlake tapes up Tanner Williams (left) and Rahtavian Matthews (right)
dismisses that, saying “the important part is the service we can provide and our ability to get high school athletes back on the field.” After all, both Westlake and Tomasin had next-level caliber athletes of their own come through the schools and benefit from the programs their fathers shepherded. Aaron Westlake was a standout baseball player at Shasta and Vanderbilt University and played several years of minor league baseball. His sister, Marissa, was a track and field athlete at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Stephen Tomasin is a member of the USA Rugby Sevens team. Nick and Mikaela Santos were each standout high school athletes, as well. “Doing this is a family venture,” Steve Westlake says, adding that being in the gym so much led to his kids being around athletes and athletics and helped with their success. On fall Friday nights, Westlake is a fixture at Shasta football games, while Tomasin mans things for the crosstown Hornets. During the winter, Harlan Carter gym becomes a home away from home for Westlake, so much so

that he can often be found eating dinner that his wife, Deanna, brings to the gym. “I wouldn’t have been able to do all this without her support,” he says. “She’s a wonderful nurse and a tremendous supporter of what we do.” And when athletes get injured? The game-day trainers assess, treat and work to get the athlete back on the field. Should the severity keep them from returning that day, Maxim has a program where they can head to theclinic and get care. “If it requires something further, we have a great relationship with many of the great physicians in the community,” he says, adding that they work to get the athlete seen quickly. “They understand the importance of getting them seen in a timely fashion.” Hunsaker said he relies on Westlake and the Maxim staff

and that the athlete’s well-being is always paramount. “When a player is hurt, he’s a non-factor for us until he’s assessed by Steve and his team,” Hunsaker says. “He’s proactive in communicating with me and takes away that part for us.” And the success for Westlake, Tomasin and the Maxim crew is hanging on the walls of their Court Street office, as photos, jerseys and other mementos dot the walls. “That the real reward,” Westlake says, “making an impact and getting that athlete back out to do something they love.” • Redding Office - 2321 Court Street • (530) 242-8480 Palo Cedro Office - 9461 Deschutes Road • (530) 547-5478 www.maximphysicaltherapy.com

STEM CELLS ...
OUR BODIES ARE BORN WITH TRILLIONS OF THEM
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:

K E E P I N G I T H E AT H LY W I T H C O U N T R Y O R G A N I C S ORGANIC FOOD has become popular, but navigating the maze of labels and claims can be overwhelming and confusing. Is it really better for you? Do GMOs and pesticides cause cancer or diseases? What do all the labels mean? First of all, the term “organic” refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed. While the regulations may vary from country to country, in the United States, organic crops must be grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, bioengineered genes (GMOs) or petroleum-based fertilizers. Organic livestock raised for meat, eggs and dairy products must have access to the outdoors and be given organic feed. They may not be given antibiotics, growth hormones or any animal by-products. So what does that mean for you? Well, how your food is raised or grown can have profound impact on your overall well-being. Organic foods have more beneficial nutrients, such as antioxidants, than their conventionally grown counterparts. And people with allergies to foods,
chemicals or preservatives often find their symptoms lessen or go away when they eat only organic foods. Organic food is more expensive because it’s more labor intensive, since the farmers do not use pesticides, chemical fertilizers or drugs. Organic certification is also expensive, and the feed for animals can cost twice as much. However, with all of these benefits, following an organic diet is a healthy way of life. And right here in the North State, a local grocer specializes in organic food. Country Organics has been around for years, but it started as a Community Supported Agriculture food delivery service. Married couple Samuel and Leah Furey worked for the company, ultimately buying it in 2016. Demand for prepared food was increasing, so when they moved the store to its current location in Mission Square in Redding, the customers followed and the Fureys stopped the delivery service altogether.4 continued on page 36
JANUARY 2019 www.EnjoyMagazine.net
The store is quaint: Picture a tiny version of Whole Foods, complete with local health and beauty products, a refrigerator case, bulk foods and bins of organic fruits and veggies. The Fureys support small vendors and local farmers as much as possible. “We work with 40 different vendors and farmers from around the area and try to work with as many smaller companies as possible,” says Samuel. They also focus on prepared foods. The deli is called The Cashew and serves food that is all organic, gluten-free and made from scratch. They also have a juice bar and serve Strawhouse Coffee, as well as Northbound Coffee (formerly brewed and served at Tops Market). For Leah, it’s more than simply selling organic food – it’s providing for people. “Our goal is to help people meet their basic physical needs so that they are able to address other areas of their lives and wellbeing,” she says. Their fondness for the community shows in all they do. Originally from the Midwest, their disdain for cold winters and love of Northern California brought them to this area and they’ve never looked back. “We both love the outdoors. Go an hour in any direction and it’s a completely different place,” Leah says. “This is the true Northern California.” Adds Samuel, “We are the pioneers in our families. I’m trying to get everyone else to move out here.” They don’t seem to have to convince people to shop at Country Organics to buy fresh food, however. Leah knows there are a lot of misconceptions about organic food, but what she will say is this: “Organic food is fresher, so know that the fresher something is, the healthier it is for you,” she says. “Organic food won’t last as long, nor should it. But it has so many benefits.” • Country Organics • 2745 Bechelli Lane, Redding www.countryorganicsredding.com

I Lost 73 Painful Pounds of Fat With Hypnosis My Weight Struggle Before INSPIRE Hypnosis: Hi – My name is Karrol Kurti. I am retired and live in Paradise California. With hypnosis I went from a size 16 to a size 6. When I started looking for the answer to my weight problem, I was depressed and didn’t even like myself. I ate anytime I was upset, and that was way too often. “Physically I felt like I was falling apart…my weight was higher than it had ever been….tipping the scales at 202 pounds on a 5’2” frame. I felt out of control; craving foods, eating mostly at night to feed my emotions. I tried diets, like cutting carbs and calories, but diets just didn’t work for me.
How I Learned About Hypnosis:
When I saw my doctor in Chico, CA, he recommended I look in to hypnosis as a way to manage my stress and lose weight. I was skeptical, but I also felt like I had tried everything else…so why not check out hypnosis?” “I called INSPIRE Hypnosis and was offered a FREE 40 minute Hypnosis Screening Session to see if hypnosis was right for me. I found the session fun and informative. I signed up!”
“I was empowered to learn self-hypnosis, and dropped 61 pounds in 12 months. Since then I have dropped 12 more pounds, and am maintaining 129 pounds… I’m 71 years old and now regularly walk, garden, kayak and enjoy traveling in our motorhome…life is good! And… the cravings are gone. I still eat at night, but only when I’m hungry.”
“I love who I am, and realize my only limitations are what I create myself.”

ON E S N E F E D B E I N G I N S P I R E D W I T H T H E WA R R I O R F O R G E D P R O J E C T “The best lightning rod for your protection is your own spine.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson IN A WORLD THAT IS EVER-CHANGING, the need for defense has always been crucial to survival. In life, there may be times we need to protect ourselves or our loved ones. Self-defense provides a countermeasure to keep you out of harm’s way, and one unique program is the Warrior Forged Project. This project was founded by Stacey Councilman, whose journey began as most do – with a personal experience. She married early, had three children and the young couple realized they were not compatible. Divorce sent them on individual life paths. She also experienced the trauma of sexual abuse. “In my teens I had been through a sexual assault and rape, although it never really hit me until later years,”
she says. “I never felt like a victim or a survivor – I just kept moving forward. I think I instinctually knew I was destined to be the strength some women needed to get through that type of situation in the future.” When her daughter was diagnosed with severe ADHD and having issues at school, Councilman took her to a psychologist, who recommended that she enroll her daughter in a martial arts school. Councilman had always wanted to do martial arts, so she joined her daughter. “That was the start of my martial arts journey. I pretty much stepped on the mat and never left,” she recalls.4 continued on page 42
JANUARY 2019 www.EnjoyMagazine.net
All great ideas begin with a thought, and Councilman had the Warrior Forged Project in her mind since 2014. She was unsure where to start or whether she had enough experience to train others. She began studying and training in additional arts, and in 2015, she came up with the name and logo. Warrior Forged Project had been born. It was originally a clothing company that would produce women’s sportswear and fund the project, but her love of teaching women martial arts and the inspiration of strength that they projected made Councilman decide her mission was to teach women’s self defense. Beginning in January 2016, Councilman began teaching a few students Krav Maga, free of charge. By fall, she was teaching women’s self defense classes on Sundays out of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy where she trained. In November 2016, Councilman and her team decided to make the Warrior Forged Project a non-profit. The dream of teaching self-defense inspired her. She never felt that she should charge for classes. “I had this extremely strong feeling deep down inside my soul that learning self defense is actually a human right. Everyone that wants to learn should know how to protect themselves and their loved ones from harm,” Councilman says. “Being a student of the Warrior Forged Project has been an eye-
opening experience,” says student Nicole Foster. “I have learned that I can do more than I thought I could. I started training two years ago and have a new outlook on life and how I view self defense. Warrior Forged Project has taught me not only the physical side of self defense, but also the mental side.” One goal of the project is to be available to families and women around the world. Another is creating a comprehensive school program and helping law enforcement with protection training. “Our mission is all about being proactive, teaching people mental and physical life skills that will make them become their own hero. The goal is to make people realize their self worth so they can be Warrior Forged,” Councilman says. “I realized that I forged myself into a warrior. What I was creating is my life’s project... the world’s project, the Warrior Forged Project.” • www.warriorforgedproject.com

Life likes to throw curve balls my direction, and often times, I am not wearing a glove! A few years ago, I began to lose my vision, and it gave me an entirely different perspective and path for my life. I started my journey by going back to college to work on earning a B.A. in Communications. I enrolled at Shasta College where the staff and teachers have all been great and my friends in the P.A.C.E. office are helping me gather my general education credits so I can transfer to a U.C. I have had a wonderful experience making new friends, learning from incredible educators, and even managing to become President of the National Honor Society, Phi Theta Kappa (requires a 3.5 G.P.A or higher). I am looking forward to finishing my general education at Shasta College, transferring to a U.C. for my B.A. and developing educational programming for children. Since incurring a disability, I have come to learn what it is like, and I now want to share those insights with the rest of the world. Empathy leads to compassion which leads to a better world. Shasta College is my first step to making the world a better place.

N O R - C A L R E T I R E D C OAC H E S A S S O C I AT I O N QUESTION: What happens when a group of Hornets, Wolves, Eagles, Cubs, Miners, Panthers, Cougars, Spartans, Patriots and Falcons get together for breakfast? Answer: An organization that has awarded more than $140,000 in scholarships to North State student athletes and is poised to hand out an additional $30,000 at its annual scholarship luncheon. The idea, borne from a weekly breakfast of friends and former high school coaches, became the Nor-Cal Retired Coaches Association and has been a boon to graduating high school student-athletes. “All we wanted to do was raise a little money and it’s snowballed,” says former Enterprise coach Ron Wooley, who is still the commissioner of the Eastern Athletic/ Sac River League that includes Shasta, Enterprise,
Foothill and Red Bluff. Last year, they gave nearly $20,000 to 16 recipients. But, honestly, how can rival coaches co-exist after battling against one another for all those years? “The camaraderie is there and I think, despite the different schools, we were all friends,” Wooley says. “The idea was to find a way to give back to something we’ve done for so many years. “And, yes, we talked early on about putting our egos and rivalries in the back pocket and work as one group.” The group’s origin began over a weekly breakfast in 2013 at the Snack Shack. While they had retired from coaching, many still felt they had something to give and wanted, as the organization’s motto claims, to be “still in the game.”4 continued on page 46

“When we originally thought of what we’d like to do, we were going to have a bowling tournament, of all things,” he says. Wooley and former Shasta football coach Lon McCasland met, formed the organization and “I delegated the presidency to him,” Wooley joked. A golf tournament was planned, but others, including Bob Johnson and Bob Smith, thought the group should solicit sponsorships to maximize the amount of scholarships they’d be able to offer. “The feeling was ‘if we’re going to do this, let’s do it right,’” Wooley says. The group’s biggest event is an annual golf tournament at Riverview Golf and Country Club that’s become one of the largest single-day tournaments north of Sacramento. But Cheryle Thurman, on the group’s communication and marketing committee, says most of the money comes from the business sponsors. The Retired Coaches Association has between 35 and 40 dues-paying members, Wooley says, as folks come and go based on “whatever they’ve got going on in their lives.” Last year, the golf tournament, slated annually for the last Friday in July, was forced back a few weeks because of the Carr Fire. In addition to the golf tournament and scholarships, the Nor-Cal Retired Coaches Association participates in holiday bell ringing, as well as helping out at the J.F. Shea fishing day for special needs children. And the group held a barbecue for KRCR employees to honor their tireless work during the Carr Fire. Wooley says this year is significant in that many of the original group of scholarship recipients should be on track to graduate from college in the spring. “It will be interesting to see how many of them graduate in that fouryear window,” Wooley says. The group’s focus is to continue ––≠hosting the tournament and scholarship ceremony, but the long-range goal is to create a foundation that sustains its vision. “We’re retired by nature, so you’re older when you join,” he says. “It would be nice to raise enough to start a foundation or trust so that when we age out there will be money to continue this at some level.”•

STORY AND PHOTOS BY RICHARD DUPERTUIS
ALIGN C H R O N I C PA I N S P E C I A L I S T M AT T H E W L I S T E R AND ALIGN STUDIOS THEY SAY if you build a better mousetrap, the world will beat a path to your door. Orland resident Matthew Lister, a chronic pain specialist, knows how that feels. After he closed his fitness studio in Chico, scores of aching former Redding clients lit up his phone. “They were clamoring for us to get up here,” he recalls with a grin. “When you keep people out of pain, they notice when you’re not there.” Today, Lister and his staff manage pain and general health for men, women and children in gyms at two locations, Redding and Chico. Touting a holistic approach, they guide their clients to relief through corrections in posture, flexibility, strength and nutrition. All services are offered under the apt, simple business name, Align. Lister says he opened a fitness studio because he saw a lack of leadership in the health field. “Specialized medicine is great for acute problems, but it leaves chronic pain sufferers out in the cold,” he says. “The experts say replace joints, cut cartilage, take medication, but what they don’t do is look at you as a whole person.” He speaks from experience, beginning when he was 17 years old. Due
to what he sees as poor supervision in high school, he shouldered a barbell and attempted to squat press 430 pounds. He succeeded for five of eight planned squats. Then he heard a snap, as three vertebrae in his lower back fractured. “I felt a searing pain in my back,” he says. “Fortunately, the weights got caught by the safety bar when I fell. I lay there for 10 minutes, checking my body, before trying to get up. I couldn’t do it.” Lister entered a life of pain. He had a three-level fusion in his lower back, and had to walk with a cane. He had planned to play football for UC Davis after high school, but that was over. “I was a very kinesthetic learner, very active, and now my identity had to change,” he says. “It’s like all the activities that you’re passionate about get ripped away from you.” He turned to physical therapy studies at Chico State University, already thinking of ways to help others as he learned how to help himself. While still healing and still learning, he and a business partner opened a fitness studio in Chico. Today he is the sole owner of Align.4 continued on page 52

Step into the Align gym in Redding and right away you see something different. Sure, along the windowed wall there’s a row of familiar exercise machines, stationary cycles and treadmills, and up ahead a graying gent deadlifts an impressive barbell with audible effort. But most of the people here seem to be taking it easy, lying on their backs on the floor, knees up with their feet resting on a wall. The weightlifter takes a break. Don Erb of Belle Vista, nodding at the group at the wall, says he started that way. “Honestly, when I first came here, I thought, ‘This is dumb,’” he says. “But I went with it. Then things started getting better and better. I had less pain at work.” By better, he means coming from a broken back decades ago, telling a story that mirrors Lister’s. Today, he graduated to a straight barbell, deadlifting 95 pounds. He proudly calls out to an approaching coach, “This is the first time!” The coach, Sam Barber of Chico, explains that the group at the wall is actually performing an exercise called the belt press. Each member holds a rubber pad between the knees, on which they exert a timed squeeze. Then there’s another timed exertion outward, against the belt strapped around their thighs. Toning gained from this counters muscle atrophy from sitting for long periods at a time. Finished with her static back work, Karen Hafenstein of Redding stretches out on a table. “I exercised all my life, but incorrectly, which caused problems,” she says. “Align was the missing ingredient in my life,” she continues. “They focus on muscle balance on all four sides of the body.” Mollie Flack of Palo Cedro has been coming to Align for about four months. “I want to walk without pain. I want to be in better shape, to go

shopping, to play with my grandkids,” she says. “I was with a trainer for five years, but I overdid it. I kept getting injured.” She credits Lister for keeping her from re-injuring herself, and she is already seeing positive results from treatment. “I’m starting to feel stronger,” she says. “I can stay on my feet longer. I have more energy.” When it comes to energy, Lister is an inspiration. His manner is quick, upbeat and positive. Jokes fly often at Align, and he is first to laugh. He walks smoothly, balanced and strong. He can hit the floor in an instant for planking, and pop right back up to his feet. It’s hard to believe he was ever so severely injured. Align Redding just underwent renovation, removing a wall that allowed the gym floor to open to some 5,000 square feet. Lister plans to add a cutting edge computer lab with 3D imaging equipment to help his clients better understand their bodies and their needs, as well as help him better understand his own. Asked if there’s still more for him to learn, he answers with a bright smile, “Always.” • Align Redding • 1615 Placer St., Redding Align Chico • 1188 E.

M A R K H U M M E L A N D H I S B L U E S S U R V I VO R S LONG-TIME BANDLEADER, Mark Hummel recalls taking up an interest in blues harp and rock-blues music while in high school. “I listened to Jimi (Hendrix), Cream, Big Brother and The Holding Company, Blue Cheer, all those blues-based bands of the ‘60s,” says Hummel, a Grammy nominated blues music award-winning harmonica player, vocalist and songwriter. “Those guys were riffing on the original songs only I didn’t realize it until I looked at the writer credits. That’s when I really got interested in the blues.” He checked out blues albums at the library. “Once I got hold of the originals, they made the rock versions seem a whole lot less to me,” he says. “I think the originals just have more power. All of a sudden a whole new world opened up for me.”
Hummel invested time into playing the harp and started playing the instruments in bands when he was about 14. “I got hooked up with all kinds of different blues folks,” he says. “It was an exciting time because blues was still blues in the ghetto clubs in Oakland, Berkeley and Richmond. I was usually only one of maybe a couple of white guys in there playing those joints; it was an exciting time for the blues.” At age 18, he decided to pursue a career in blues music and started his band, the Blues Survivors, in 1977. By 1984, he began a life of one-stop touring of the United States, Canada and Europe, sharing the stage with the likes of Charles Brown, Charlie Musselwhite, Lazy Lester, Brownie McGhee, Eddie Taylor and Jimmy Rogers.4 continued on page 58 JANUARY 2019 www.EnjoyMagazine.net
With more than 30 blues recordings, including the Grammy-nominated 2013 release “Remembering Little Walter,” Hummel is considered one of the premier blues harmonica players of his generation. “I’ve always tried to do a cross section of tempos and styles in my music – fast songs, slow songs, medium ones, rhumbas, boogaloos, shuffles, flat tires, Chicago Blues, West Coast Jump, Texas Blues Swing, New Orleans R&B, country delta blues, soul music and some funky beats thrown in here and there,” he says. He put together the first Blues Harmonica Blowout in 1991 at Ashkenaz, a live music and dance venue in Berkeley. Each player performed a 20- to 30-minute set and everyone jammed together with Hummel’s Blues Survivor band backing them up. “We had about 200 people show up for the first event. You never heard much blues harp on the radio back then, except maybe Blues Traveler, who weren’t exactly blues.” Over the next five years, the Blowout grew to become a multi-venue event around California. By 2000, it was headlining Yoshi’s in Oakland as a four-night show with Rod Piazza, Kim Wilson, Rick Estrin, James Harman and Billy Branch. The 2019 Annual Blues Harmonica Blowout (28th year) is headlined by Bobby Rush, the 2017 Grammy winner for Best Traditional Blues Album; Grammy-nominated Kenny Neal; Alabama harp-man/vocalist/songwriter James Harman; New Orleans favorite Johnny Sansone; and Mark Hummel’s Golden State Lone Star Blues Revue, featuring Anson Funderburg. About his more than 40 years in the music business, Hummel says, “I try to follow the older black bluesmen’s example: Just play the blues and everything else will usually work out. If it doesn’t, put it in a song. To me, the blues is a long, hard road and nobody said it would be easy, make you a lot of money, super stardom or anything else. All I ever wanted was to make an OK living at this. The blues is experience in life, through hard times and good times – you can’t play or sing withoutboth.Youhavetohavestruggledinsomeway.I’malways
trying to improve myself and make peace with myself and others. The blues can do that through understanding. It’s certainly what the older African American greats were singing about when they said, ‘Times Won’t Be Hard Always’ or ‘The Sun’s Gonna Shine In My Backdoor Someday’.” • Mark Hummel’s 2019 Annual Blues Harmonica Blowout: Tuesday, January 15th, Sierra Nevada Brewery in Chico Wednesday, January 16th, Cascade Theater in Redding

TAKE CONTROL MAKING CHANGES FOR DIABETES PREVENTION THE NUMBERS ARE downright numbing: Half the adults in Shasta County are prediabetic and a third of those will contract Type 2 diabetes within five years. Diabetes affects more than 30 million people in the United States and another 84 million are prediabetic. A mere 10 percent of prediabetic people are even aware of it. A grim assessment from Shasta County’s public health department, to be sure, but within those numbers is hope. “When we find out the train of their life is heading toward diabetes, we just shift the tracks bit by bit,” says Deannie Joseph, a registered nurse and diabetes instructor at Shasta Regional Medical Center. “Each lifestyle change can completely change the direction and get them back on the track to a healthy lifestyle and quality of life.” Classified as a metabolic disease, diabetes occurs when the body’s cells fail to absorb enough glucose (sugar) in the bloodstream. In a healthy system, cells take up glucose using insulin, a hormone produce by the pancreas. In a
person with diabetes, the pancreas fails to produce enough insulin or the cells become resistant to it. When glucose builds up in the bloodstream, known as hyperglycemia, it can lead to serious health issues, including heart attack, stroke, nerve damage, kidney dysfunction and blindness. The exact cause of Type 2 diabetes is not fully understood, but researchers have identified obesity, a sedentary lifestyle and poor food choices as the chief risk factors. It is believed that some people have a genetic predisposition for diabetes, says Malinda Knowles, a nurse practitioner and board-certified diabetes instructor. “Usually someone has a family member who has had it,” Knowles says. “The gene is the gun but what pulls the trigger is your diet and lifestyle. On the positive side, there is a lot of control over these risk factors. If you keep4 continued on page 62

“The other good news is a little bit of exercise goes a long way with diabetes.
Even a five-minute walk reduces glucose levels. A 10-minute walk a day is very beneficial to someone with diabetes. It’s definitely a selfmanagement condition,” Knowles says.
your blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose within recommended parameters, you can markedly keep your risk within control. “The other good news is a little bit of exercise goes a long way with diabetes. Even a five-minute walk reduces glucose levels. A 10-minute walk a day is very beneficial to someone with diabetes. It’s definitely a self-management condition,” Knowles says. Exercise is one of the key components of the new diabetes prevention program being offered at the Shasta Family YMCA, says Pauline Asbill, the program manager. The yearlong program starts with weekly sessions, then biweekly and then monthly. Participants focus on eating healthier, losing weight and getting more active.
Preventive Health Care
What is the difference between an annual physical vs preventive health screening? An “Annual Physical Examination”, “Routine Physical” or “Check-up” is a Preventive visit that specifically focuses on promoting health and wellness. The purpose of a routine Preventive Health Screening is to identify potential health problems in the early stages when they may be easier and less costly to treat. Having a preventive visit allows your doctor and/or your dentist to evaluate your medical health or oral health and make sure you get the right screenings for your age, gender and family history. This visit can help you stay healthy and may help you identify health concerns before they become a long-term condition. This exam is prevention-focused rather than problem-focused. That means it is designed to prevent minor issues from becoming serious. It is not meant to evaluate, diagnose or treat existing problems. If you have an existing problem that needs to be addressed during your preventive office visit, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, skin rash, high cholesterol, headaches, etc., your provider may bill part of the exam as your annual preventive exam, and part of the exam as treatment of your diagnosis.
Nationally, Americans use preventive services at about half the recommended rate. Cost-sharing such as deductibles, co-insurance, or copayments also reduce the likelihood that preventive services will be used. One study found that the rate of women getting a mammogram went up as much as 9% when cost-sharing was removed. Chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, are responsible for 7 of every 10 deaths among Americans each year and account for 75% of the nation’s health spending. These chronic diseases can be largely preventable through close partnership with your healthcare team, or can be detected through appropriate screenings, when treatment works best. www.cdc.gov The American Dental Association recommends you see your dentist every six months. Preventive dental care can help you reduce or avoid future costs by preventing and finding potential issues sooner. Because many diseases and conditions first show signs in your mouth, good dental health helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. ... Check with your insurance company about your preventive care: What’s covered, What’s not and What screenings you need and how often do you need them? Such as; breast exams, every 24 months and mammograms,

“There’s a lot of group support and you’re working with a lifestyle coach. When you’re with people in a similar situation, you can share tips and things that work for you,” says Asbill, who notes that the YMCA program is curriculum-based and follows guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control. The program is for people diagnosed as prediabetic. “Over 12 months, you can make small changes with different goals each week. These are small changes that people can actually make and be successful at,” Asbill says. Limiting carbohydrates, focusing on vegetables and lean proteins and increasing activity are lifestyle changes, not the latest fad diet, she says. At least two risk factors for diabetes, age and heredity, are not controllable, but the others – a sedentary lifestyle, being overweight and not eating sensibly – are controllable. “That’s the beauty of Type 2 diabetes. If you’re prediabetic, you can turn that train around; if you’re diagnosed, you can make good food choices,” Joseph says. “We work with people to help them make good food choices, maintain their carbs and give them tips and strategies to be more active. There are always things people can do.” Diabetes educators like Knowles and Joseph recommend diets that emphasize vegetables like green beans, broccoli, celery, bell peppers, asparagus, Brussels sprouts, spinach, kale and cucumbers. Knowles recommends limiting carbohydrates to 180 grams a day (45 to 60 per meal and 15 grams in snacks) and the fruits, vegetables,
whole grains and lean proteins associated with the Mediterranean diet. Thirty minutes of activity, five times a week, should also be on the to-do list. “It doesn’t have to be strenuous,” Knowles says. “A little goes a long way. Try to find something you love.” Losing weight shouldn’t be a crash course, either, she says. “Don’t lose it too quickly. Hormones are a factor and they can kind of sabotage your efforts. Even if you lose 5 percent of your body weight, even five pounds when you weigh 300, will reduce your numbers. “A lot of diabetics feel like failures, but they’re fighting an uphill battle. It’s not their fault they gain weight faster. You just have to do your best. Even a five-minute walk will really help. You may not lose a ton of weight, but it will help your glucose,” Knowles says. It’s recommended to always consult your healthcare provider before starting a new diet or exercise program. • YMCA diabetes prevention program • www.sfymca.com/dpp

BILLY AND PATRICK | BY PATRICK JOHN
CATCH SOME Zzz's NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION: GET MORE SLEEP
FOR ONCE, I’ve planned my New Year’s resolution in advance. My wife’s been telling me for years, but I’ve finally concluded that I really do need more sleep. MUCH more sleep. I did the research for you. The Centers for Disease Control, the Mayo Clinic and the National Sleep Foundation all say adults over age 18 need at least seven hours of sleep per night. In fact, they say seven to nine hours, but let’s start with baby steps. Teens need eight to 10 hours, and elementary school-aged children need up to 12 hours of shut-eye. My original thought was, “I’ll have to go to bed when it’s still light out – no way!” There’s a little exaggeration there, but my DVR will be working overtime. Full disclosure: I co-host a morning radio show, so my alarm has been going off at 4:20am for the last 24 years. I earned those dark circles under my eyes. I’m used to five or six hours of sleep per night, so this will be a big change. I needed convincing, so here’s what the experts say: • Those who prioritized sleep as important and slept soundly for the recommended timeframe considered themselves more productive at home, at work and with their family. • Lack of sleep is scientifically linked to overeating. Experts say it has to do with two specific hormones. I say it just means I won’t do any latenight snacking! Either way, more sleep wins. Not enough sleep tonight actually means you are more prone to eat extra calories and fat tomorrow. • Less sleep also equals less motivation when it comes to exercise. If you plan on going to the gym regularly, you’ll be more motivated with more sleep. • Proper amounts of sleep also help lessen nicotine dependence, meaning it may help if you want to quit smoking. There are countless other benefits to plenty of sleep, from overall improved attitude to better learning and memory skills, and the research continues to recognize those pluses.
If you’re now on the “more zzz’s” bandwagon with me, we have to figure out how to make it happen. These are some of the recommendations that should make it a little easier to get deep, restful, sleep: • Prep for sleep with a regular routine. A bath or shower, some calm music, a book or magazine, or even a cup of tea (decaf ) sets the tone for your mind and body. Try to use that routine every night, and your body “learns” the signs of impending sleep. • Dim the lights and make sure you have window coverings that sufficiently block the light from your bedroom. The color of your bedroom walls matters. Sleep studies repeatedly say lighter hues of blue are the best color for a bedroom. It’s a happy and calming force in your sleep environment. Good colors include neutral earth tones, and pastel greens and yellows. Purple, red and brown were the worst wall colors for a sleep-friendly room. If you’ve been itching to try a new color or re-paint, more sleep is a good reason! • This should be a no-brainer, but a comfortable, supportive bed with cozy sheets and blankets makes a world of difference. Remember your pillow, too. Try a few styles out, because the right pillow is magic. If you’ve been sleeping on the same bed for awhile and can clearly notice lumps, bumps and sags in the mattress, it’s time to get a new one. Some beds last longer, but the average person over age 40 should get a new mattress every seven years. One more thing: If you’ve been sleep deprived for an extended period of time, you can actually make up past lost sleep – not completely, but to some extent, so maybe those dark circles will go away. Here’s to a brighteyed and bushy-tailed 2019 for all of us! • Patrick John has been working the radio airwaves in Redding for 22 years as co-host of Billy & Patrick Mornings. He is a huge animal lover, and has two beautiful rescue dogs. You can hear him weekdays from 6-10am on Q97. JANUARY 2019 www.EnjoyMagazine.net

SUPPLIES • Terra cotta pot shaped like a bowl • Craft paint • Paint brush • Small lava rock or other fire-resistant rock • River rock or fire glass of your choice • Disposable grill topper • Canned fuel (wick or gel fuel) • Permanent marker (optional) • Craft paper to paint on • Lighter • Pliers or heavy duty scissors TIP: CUSTOMIZE YOUR FIRE BOWL BY USING FIRE GLASS OR RIVER ROCK IN THE COLOR OF YOUR CHOICE. WE PAINTED OUR BOWL FOR A MODERN LOOK, BUT YOU CAN ELIMINATE THIS STEP IF YOU PREFER THE TERRA COTTA FINISH. YOU CAN ALSO MAKE A BOWL USING QUICK-MIX CONCRETE.
1. Paint your terra cotta bowl in the color of your choice using your craft paint (we used Graphite by Annie Sloan Chalk Paint).
2. Fill your bowl halfway using your smaller rock.
3. Place your canned fuel in the center of your bowl sitting at the same height or just below your bowl’s rim.
4. Position your grill topper over your bowl and use a permanent marker to mark where you will cut to fit your topper inside the bowl. Your topper will lay on top of your canned fuel and over your small rock.
5. Cut your grill topper where you marked it off or in a shape that it can fit on top of the small rock and canned fuel.
6. Place your round grill topper over the small rock and canned fuel.
7. Add your river rock on top of the grill topper, around the opening of the canned fuel.
8. Light your canned fuel and enjoy your tabletop fire bowl during a chilly night – or to make s’mores!

PHYSICAL THERAPY AND WELLNESS CENTER, INC. A N D T E H A M A FA M I LY F I T N E S S C E N T E R
THE SECRET to success at Red Bluff ’s Physical Therapy and Wellness Center is no secret at all. “The common denominator here, the reason we do so well,” says CEO Ed Stroman, “is stability. Everyone has chosen to be in Red Bluff. It’s easy to keep good people.” It wasn’t always this way. Stroman remembers a time when the center had a revolving door of therapists from out of the area who for one reason or another would move on. Sometimes the intense summers drove them away, sometimes the town felt too small. What’s changed for the center is the community’s efforts to grow its own professionals. Junior partner Lonnie Scott came back to Red Bluff after his first job with the San Diego Chargers. “Lonnie used to work with us here when he was 17 years old,” says Stroman. “He would do the laundry at night, clean up. He was a pretty good student and athlete and he went off to college.” While the time with the Chargers was fun, there was a lure home. “I needed a business manager and someone to take over what I was doing at the high school, which was athletic training. I brought him home,” Stroman adds. “Lonnie has made that an incredible program,” he continues. “Because of that, just about all of our employees have gone through ROP (Regional Occupational Program at Red Bluff High School) and come back to work for us.”
Adding to the line-up of therapists is Stroman’s own son, Jacob, who graduated Red Bluff High and went on to Feather River College, Chico State University and University of the Pacific, where he received his doctorate to become a physical therapist. “I don’t want to be his boss,” Stroman says with a laugh. “I just want to be his dad. I have people that can take care of that for me. He’s an altruistic guy. Everyone’s important to him. That’s what I love about him.” Taking care of Jacob and the rest of the team is Dale Mendenhall, the center’s vice president. “He came back,” Stroman says of the Red Bluff native. “He had a lot of opportunities in different parts of the country because he’s very bright. He looked around and decided this is where he wants to be.”4 continued on page 72
JANUARY 2019 www.EnjoyMagazine.net
The only “transplant” is their only female therapist, Megan Jackson of Grass Valley, who attended Chico State and University of the Pacific and has a background in special education and neurological impairments. Stroman’s own journey to Red Bluff started in high school in the Bay Area. “I always remembered Red Bluff because our basketball coach used to bring us to Shasta Lake for a week. We would stop in Red Bluff at the Chicken Shack. I remembered the quaint Main Street.” When his sister told him that Bob Green was looking for a junior partner in his physical therapy practice, he left a Fresno clinic and took advantage of the opportunity. Green and Stroman steadily built their business together until Green died tragically in a plane crash; Stroman then became CEO and president. The team at Physical Therapy and Wellness has created a place for comprehensive physical therapy for a range of conditions, from elite athlete wellness to rehabilitation for carpal tunnel and occupational injuries. “We just added 700 feet to our gym in the physical therapy part and it looks like a college training program,” says Stroman. “We got AstroTurf out in the training room. It’s pretty spectacular.” Complementing the Physical Therapy and Wellness Center is Tehama Family Fitness Center next door, which Stroman opened in September 2001. The fitness center complements the wellness center’s goals of getting people moving for better health and is co-owned by Stroman’s daughter, Aubrie Thomas, and Kyle Tingley. Across the way is St. Elizabeth Community Hospital, where youngest daughter Ashtin is a nurse. “All three of these kids,” Stroman says wistfully and with gratitude in his voice. “I could throw a rock and hit them.” When Stroman moved to Red Bluff in 1986 with wife Karla, he told her, “All I want is property.” It’s clear the couple has received so much more. • Physical Therapy and Wellness Center, Inc. 2490 S.

Step into the Past F I N D I N G H I S TO R Y AT T H E G R I D L E Y M U S E U M
FOR HIGHWAY 99 TRAVELERS a stopover in the town of Gridley may include a quick gasoline fill-up or some fast food from the usual highway chain restaurants. However, if you turn west on Hazel Street and go over the railroad tracks, you will come to the historic downtown. Located on the corner of Hazel and Kentucky streets is the Gridley Museum. The beautifully preserved corner building originally welcomed bank customers in 1909. Known as the Veatch Building, named for developer H.C. Veatch, rooms upstairs operated as leases to local dentists, doctors and attorneys. As you walk in, you may be impressed with the 15-foot-high tin ceiling tiles. Numerous exhibits spread out in all directions and funnel visitors through a tour of 19th and 20th century life in this Northern California farming community. Highlights include the wonderfully restored two-seat surrey carriage, historic farm implements and taxidermy specimens of local animals and birds â€“ duck hunting proved a major tourist draw for people including actor-singer Bing Crosby. Museum Curator/Director RuthAnn King maintains the numerous collections and exhibits with an eye for detail and organization. Your eyes are drawn from one display to another in a seamless flow of artifacts and information cards. One card, accompanying a mid-20th century photograph of what appeared to be a conveyor-belt operation, summarized the amazing peach and pumpkin cannery that operated in Gridley for years. Known as the Libby, McNeil Cannery, the enterprise employed 1,500 or more people working together to can enough peaches to fill 15 to 20 carloads of cans per day.4 continued on page 76
JANUARY 2019 www.EnjoyMagazine.net
While at the museum, make sure to follow the narrow, steep staircase upstairs. There you will journey back in time to visit the restored professional offices of a dentist, doctor and attorney. Opening the door on Room 8, a visitor immediately sees the traditional dental treatment chair, complete with porcelain spit bowl and an assortment of drills. Peering into the attorney’s office, a prospective customer of the mid-1950s might see what we see today – floor to near-ceiling leather-bound law books overwhelming the wood grain shelves. On the attorney’s desk sits a massive, heavy classic typewriter and a symbolic “scale of justice” occupying its place nearby. Future plans for the museum call for “ever-changing exhibits…on early families, farming and business life.” The museum is open to the public and free of charge; donations are appreciated. • Gridley Museum Hours: Tuesday through Friday, 10am to 2pm Special tours: Call (530) 846-4482 Find them on Facebook

INGREDIENTS: 1 T olive oil 2 cup coarsely chopped onions 2 T chopped garlic 1 cup chopped celery 1 jalapeño pepper, finely chopped 2 lbs. ground turkey 1 T dried oregano 2 bay leaves 3 T chili powder 1 T ground cumin 1 T ground coriander 2 15-oz. cans of diced tomatoes with green chiles 1 cup chicken broth Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 1 15-oz. can of red kidney beans, drained and rinsed 1 15-oz. can of pinto beans, drained and rinsed 1 15-oz. can of black beans, drained and rinsed Optional garnishes: Grated cheddar cheese, sour cream, diced avocado, chopped cilantro, jalapeno slices, and lime wedges.
www.EnjoyMagazine.net JANUARY 2019
DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL RECIPE YOU’D LIKE LANA TO MAKE? Please submit it to email@example.com
DIRECTIONS: STEP 1: Heat the oil over high heat in a large heavy pot and add the onion, garlic, celery and jalapeĂąo. Cook until veggies are soft and onion translucent. STEP 2: Add the turkey meat, breaking it up as it cooks. Cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Use a heavy spoon or spatula to break up any lumps. STEP 3: Add oregano, bay leaves, chili powder, cumin and coriander. Stir to blend well. Cook for 5 minutes.
STEP 4: Add the tomatoes, chicken broth, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes. STEP 5: Add the beans and allow to simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes. The longer it simmers, the more the seasonings are allowed to develop. STEP 6: Serve in bowls and top with cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, some diced avocado, chopped cilantro, a couple of jalapeĂąo, and a squeeze of a lime wedge to finish off. Lana Granfors has resided in Redding since moving here from Texas in 1975. She devotes time to her passions: family, travel, gardening and cooking. A self-taught cook, her recipes are created with an emphasis on fresh ingredients, ease of preparation and of course, flavor.

The Attendance Perspective PreK & Beyond Welcome, January 2019! The entrance of this new year has come at a time when PreK through high school learners are returning from winter recess, college students preparing for spring semester, while many adults flow back into work. Many times the relaxation of being away from a daily routine, such as going to school, college, or work causes one to adjust priorities, and sometimes, adapting to one’s once-standard practices take time. Youth are encouraged to find a niche, and not let factors such as barriers, negative school experiences, lack of engagement, or misconceptions contribute to absenteeism. ABSENTEEISM: California has experienced some of the highest numbers of kids missing school. According to Chronic Absence Attendance Partnership, “chronic absence is when a student has been absent for 10% or more of the school year.” As California focuses on preparing kids for 21st Century Learning, learners must be at school; in class in order to make learning visible. California School Attendance Research Project (2015) listed a few contributing factors of truancy as follows: • Missing 18 days of school the current/prior school year, • 2-days a month, in any combination. IMPACT: The impact of missing school may cause some kids to struggle and fall behind, in turn negatively impacting the student’s grades, confidence, and motivation for being in school. On the other hand, setting a trend of positive attendance can become habit forming, and that is a good thing! A positive trend of having 90%-100% attendance helps kids improve their grades, builds confidence, and motivates them to encourage their peers to achieve. In the long run, having good attendance… • Demonstrates a pattern for success; learner agency, • Shows a potential employer the student is reliable, • Demonstrates a learner is investing in their future. Attendance is important in PreK and beyond!

IN 2006, members of the Mt. Shasta area Nordic community, who wished to preserve and enhance the Nordic skiing infrastructure in Northern California, formed the Mt. Shasta Nordic Ski Organization. Today, it’s the group’s goal to ensure access and opportunities to all Nordic skiers by creating a welcoming community of passionate cross-country skiers. Not only are experienced skiers welcome, but so is anyone willing to learn Nordic skiing. The organization intends to benefit upcoming generations by creating opportunities to enhance and preserve Nordic skiing for all ages and abilities. To accomplish this, the nonprofit facilitates educational programs, competitive events, and participation in Nordic skiing as a fun, beneficial, physical activity. The organization strives to encourage and support community health by inspiring an active winter activity beneficial to both mental and physical health, while also responding to the wishes and needs of the community for environmental responsibility, fiscal
prudence and operational sustainability. They provide well-groomed trails, a full-service facility, quality instruction and equipment. Mt. Shasta Nordic Ski Organization has maintained a solid foundation that enables its additional programs to flourish, while ensuring efficient operations of their Nordic Center and general upkeep. Another goal is to build and grow a selfsustaining youth development and junior race program in the future. For more information or ways to volunteer, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (530) 925-3495 during open hours (9am – 4pm Thursday through Sunday). • www.mtshastanordic.org
