the shasta C O U R T H O U S E M U S E U M and l i tsch general merchand i se store

Time traveling is a lot easier than you may imagine. Just hop in your car and head to the Courthouse Museum and Litsch General Merchandise Store—and presto, you’ll feel like you’ve traveled back to when gold fever was practically epidemic. An abundance of history is waiting for you in this once-bustling town that lies west of Redding on Highway 299. “The Courthouse Museum was one of the first permanent structures in Shasta County,” says Jack Frost, a historical monument guide who worked in Shasta for 16 years before transferring to the Weaverville Joss House. “It represents the very beginning of Shasta County history,” a time when the county stretched to the Oregon and Nevada borders. The past lives on in Shasta, something that is evident the minute

you walk into the museum. Supervising Ranger Lori Martin says the museum exhibits follow a timeline, beginning with the Wintu and traveling through the boom and bust of Shasta. The boom, of course, began with the discovery of gold in the late 1840s and the bust occurred when the county seat moved to Redding in 1888. The Courthouse in Shasta was built in 1855, and the museum has been restored to its 1861 appearance. Martin points to signs in the museum that indicate the original offices of the district attorney, sheriff, tax collector, recorder, auditor, clerk, etc. The jail and gallows were also located here, and are part of the intrigue of the place. Take the stairs to the lower level, and you can see and hear from Jake, a prisoner who—thanks to hologram technology—shares stories of his misguided life. continued on page 14 May 2013 ENJOY | 13

“Kids like it, but then they also don’t like it,” Martin says of the dank jail’s effect. “It’s a healthy message.” Shasta was far from lawless, and only held three hangings. Martin said the town was quite cosmopolitan, with fraternal and social organizations that supported church and schools. In addition to the abundance of historical artifacts and exhibits, the Courthouse Museum is also home to the highly respected Boggs Collection of art. Donated to the museum by Mae Helene Bacon Boggs—who moved to Shasta in 1871 at age 8—the collection depicts California’s rich history from 1850 to 1950. The museum offers detailed pamphlets on all 98 pieces of exhibited artwork. The Courthouse Museum opened in 1950 and was renovated in 2000. The exhibits and ambiance were greatly enhanced by

the collections of the late George Albro, who worked at the Shasta Courthouse until it moved to Redding and, according to Frost, “was the ultimate hoarder.” He saved all he could from the Shasta site in his own barn and when the state acquired the property in 1948, he donated records, furniture and artifacts to the museum effort. The museum remains open today—from 10 am to 5 pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday—largely because the community rallied to its defense when the state threatened to close its doors in July 2012. Generous support from the Shasta Historical Society (Save Old Shasta campaign) and the Town of Shasta Interpretive Society, along with money from the California State Parks Foundation and a new matching funds program through the State Parks Recreation Fund, have alleviated the closure threat for now. continued on page 16

“We’re still open because of the generosity of local donors,” Martin says. Enough money was donated to keep the complex open for the public and school groups. Martin says the park benefits from the help of some 50 to 60 volunteers, including students from two docent groups. Springtime is popular with schoolchildren, who come to learn about pioneer life in the area. Students really enjoy visiting the Litsch Store, which opened in 1873 and served customers for seven decades. Inside the painted red brick building, complete with fireproof iron doors, is an amazing reproduction of a general store in the 1890s. Inside are household goods, bulk items, tack, hardware, a post office, menswear, shoes, women’s clothing, stationery, cosmetics and notions —all as it was, thanks to a photograph of the store’s interior.

“The Litsch family was one of few businesses that had interior photographs done,” Frost says. The last owners of the store, Robert and Corrine Litsch, also were reluctant to throw out anything, and because of their habits, the Litsch Store today is stocked with original items. “Visitors today get to see the real thing,” Frost says. There are old leather shoes, never sold or worn, on the shelf. People are so amazed at what’s on those shelves.” Visitors can look at unusual things such as hair safes and a hat sizer. They can peer at the store’s ledger, which documents every sale and receipt. “The store brings that time period back to life,” Frost says. • Courthouse Museum and Litsch General Merchandise Store, Shasta State Historic Park Highway 299 in Shasta; museum is on north side of Highway 299; Litsch Store is on south side; Courthouse Museum hours: 10 am to 5 pm Friday through Sunday. Admission is $3 for adults, $2 for school-age children; Litsch Store hours: 10 am to 2 pm Saturday and Sunday

well schooled a gl i mpse at homeschool i ng i n the north state

FOR ANNIE FRIEDMAN SIRE, Mother’s Day doubles as Teacher Appreciation Day. “Unschooled” for all of her life, the world was her classroom and her parents guided the adventure. “I was encouraged to find new ways to learn about things, and when something wasn’t working I had a compassionate teacher, who knew me better than anyone, who worked with me to figure it out,” Annie, 23, says of mother Erin Friedman. “She taught us to love learning and that just about any ‘boring’ old subject was really packed full of amazing things if you looked close enough.” Molly and John Mancasola of Redding are another North State family that has embraced homeschooling, and their five children are chasing the world’s opportunities with vigor. “I’ve loved that my children have had so much uninterrupted, unhurried time to ponder and learn at their own pace, in their own ways, for their own purposes,” Molly says. Kiira, 28, earned two bachelor’s degrees at Stanford University and a master’s at Rutgers University, studied at the London Academy of Music and Art, and works in digital marketing and social engagement with Levi Strauss & Co. Sydney, 25, graduated from Oberlin College Music Conservatory, is multilingual and recently won the Metropolitan Opera National Council Finals, the world’s continued on page 20 May 2013 ENJOY | 19

premier competition for upcoming opera professionals. Paolo, 23, is an artist, dancer, composer and captain of the basketball team at the University of California at Davis, where he’s studying psychology. Carlos, 19, also attends UC Davis and will play basketball in this fall. He’s a writer, pianist, jazz composer and dancer who is considering a biology major. Matteo, 13, is a voracious reader, basketball player and story maker with a keen interest in ancient weaponry, mythology and zoology. He’s skilled in jujitsu, volunteers at Turtle Bay and has a neighborhood garbage business. The Mancasolas trusted in their children’s innate desire to learn, Molly says, adding, “I think we understand each other more deeply and have a closer bond because of our homeschooling adventure.” Erin and Craig Friedman, the owners of Wrap-N-Pack, homeschooled Annie, 23 (she’s a stay-at-home mom in Germany and a certified massage therapist with a music degree); Max, 21 (a dance instructor, lifeguard and clerk at the family business); and Joe, 17 (a college student and dance instructor). “Craig and I spent our first few years as parents creating a family-centered life, and we were not willing to trade it for a school-centered life just because somebody turned 5,” Erin says. Eva Varga homeschools Geneva, 10, and Jeffrey, 8, and appreciates the flexibility it affords. “Learning has become part of our lifestyle and we take advantage of opportunities that surround us—museums, parks and experts who are excited to share their knowledge,” she says. “Everyone has a unique learning style and I am able to use this to our advantage, designing lessons and choosing curriculum that is best suited to my children as individuals.” Homeschooling takes many shapes, and for the Mancasolas, Friedmans and Vargas, it involves “dismantling the conventional ideas about a standardized education and just focusing on having an authentic, juicy learning adventure,” Molly says. Erin used “a curriculum of joy… We read a lot, played a lot and explored the community and enjoyed nature. We learned a boatload of interesting things by following our hearts. Our children discovered their passions, and explored the world in a delightfully disorganized, self-directed way.” Math includes measuring ingredients or figuring out sports score averages. Science is exploring river banks or turning compost. They travel to historical landmarks, compose songs and fill their journals, and when Mom and Dad don’t know the answer, they model resourcefulness.

20 | Enjoy May 2013

“‘I don’t know’ is a legitimate answer, but it’s not the end of the conversation,” Erin adds. “No one is an expert on everything – the trick is to know how to find what you need to know.” In the Friedman house, home school included “laughing uncontrollably, canceling cable in favor of buying more musical instruments, long family dinner conversations, excessive trips to Barnes and Noble for more books, directing your own movies, swing dancing in the kitchen at midnight, and in many cases, thinking your parents are cool,” Annie says. “I am blessed with a wonderfully close bond with my mother. I think she is one of the crazy coolest ladies ever.” Homeschooling isn’t for everyone, Erin says, and “I know plenty of wonderfully close-knit, loving families who believe wholeheartedly in public education—and our schools and our communities are better because of them.” For them, homeschool was a perfect fit. And this Mother’s Day, these teacher-moms will celebrate a job well done. “I think my kids are fascinating and wonderful and I love watching them work hard at the work they love to do,” Erin says. “I imagine all parents, if they are lucky, feel the same way … Homeschooling was really the gift of time together. What more could a mom want?” •

EN J OY THE STO R E , R ED B LUFF, NOW O P EN beside hardworking merchants, quaint boutiques and dining establishments, Brandon and Kate Grissom couldn’t be happier to take their place in downtown Red Bluff. Committed to celebrating what’s good about their community, the pair says this venture has felt nothing but right. Located on historic downtown Main Street, the store will look much like its Redding counterpart. A wide variety of edibles such as soups, nuts, sauces and baked good mixes will nestle among a colorful, eclectic representation of locally produced jewelry, pottery, glass, continued on page 24

music and woodworking creations. Visitors will notice one big difference. A hand-crafted bar anchors the store interior and will feature wine tastings from Manton-based Cedar Crest Vineyards, as well as wine for sale by the glass, bottle and case. Brandon, who will serve as storekeeper and frontman, says, “The idea, the store—the buying the 100-plus-year-old building with the oldest working pulley-elevator in the county—it all happened pretty fast. But it was a natural connection. There was absolutely no forcing the relationship with the community or the Enjoy team.” To understand the Grissoms’ journey to Enjoy the Store, Red Bluff is to reflect on the Enjoy brand, in general, and how it has grown. Yvonne Mazzotta and Michelle Adams founded InHouse Marketing and Design in 2005, parent to both Enjoy Magazine and Enjoy the Store, Redding. New business developer and ideas guy James Mazzotta (Yvonne’s husband) explains how the retail element of the business simply accentuated a commitment to promoting a positive community. “With the magazine, we consider ourselves storytellers,” he says. “We’ve always told uplifting stories that celebrate local producers and the cool things they make.” When readers began calling to find artisans from long-past issues, James had an “Aha!” moment. He thought, what if we extended our published stories into a personal shopping experience? He believed North State residents would respond to a store that carried local, unique gifts featured in the magazine. “People love to share the stories behind gifts. It shows who you are as a giver, thoughtful and not just satisfied with something generic from a big box.” Frequent shoppers validated Enjoy’s uplifting inclinations and the area’s need for a centralized outlet where artisans could grow their businesses. With two years of trial, error and success behind them, the Enjoy team sketched long-term plans to introduce a similar concept to like24 | Enjoy May 2013

minded communities. For the Grissoms, the timing was perfect. The couple was looking for an outlet to channel their community commitment as a team. The Enjoy store opportunity made sense because it blended community and togetherness. They knew it was meant to be when the historic Main Street building came up for sale. “We found a home,” says Kate. “We’re here. We’re committed.” The building has given Brandon an opportunity to use his creativity and carpentry skills. He has transformed the space, crafting displays and building the central bar. Much of their inventory will mirror their sister store’s, but the Grissoms will continue to hunt for new products. “It’s a little mind-whirling to know where to begin,” says Brandon. “We can’t look at anything now without thinking how great it would be in the store.” “Red Bluff has always been a big part of the Enjoy brand and we know the people there will embrace the store as well as we’ve seen in Redding,” says James. “We like to think of this venture as a way of honoring that community.” For the Grissoms, opening the store represents the magic of relationships built over the years and hundreds more they have yet to forge. With great pride, they swing wide their doors and invite customers, partners and friends to be amazed at the high-quality, unique wares North State artisans and entrepreneurs have to offer. • Enjoy the Store, Red Bluff • 615 Main Street Hours: Monday - Saturday, 10 am - 7 pm, Sunday, 12 - 5 pm

world on a trek to summ i t S hasta

It felt euphoric to reach the summit of 14,179-foot Mt. Shasta, Northern California’s massive Cascade jewel. About an hour later, I figured I’d have another payoff — a fun and controlled slide down the mountain using a technique called glissading (one of my favorite memories from the first time I’d climbed Shasta). But it was a major error in judgment this time. The moment my butt touched the snow, I shot like a missile down a steep slope below the rock formation known as the Red Banks. It was too early in the day and too icy for glissading. More than a thousand feet stretched below me before anything began to flatten out. In the span of a few precious seconds, many alarming thoughts flashed through my brain: “You’re going to be injured badly at best. Why did you try this? The crampons on your pack will probably impale you. SELF-ARREST NOW!!”

Somehow I managed to flip to my stomach, bury my ice axe into the slope and slide to a halt. My arms shook in fear for minutes. Eventually, I managed to fasten my crampons (metal spikes) back onto my boots and safely descend. I was lucky. This story from years back is not uncommon, says Jenn Carr, who owns Shasta Mountain Guides with her husband Chris. Mt. Shasta is considered an excellent training peak for mountaineering, but climbers regularly underestimate the challenges and dangers on it. “The saying is: ‘Reaching the summit is optional, getting back to the trailhead is not optional,” says Carr, who has been guiding climbs on Shasta for 14 years. “Our order of priorities is always to have a safe trip, have a fun trip, and then achieve our goals. Reaching the summit is just the halfway point.” Hiring a mountain guide can be the best decision an inexperienced climber can make. Guides provide invaluable knowledge in regards

continued on page 28

May 2013 ENJOY | 27

to safety, climbing techniques, equipment, weather patterns, routes and snow conditions. Guides also understand how to “read” climbers and know how they’re faring during any point in the endeavor. The most common route to Shasta’s summit is via Avalanche Gulch from the parking lot at Bunny Flat off Everitt Memorial Highway. It’s 7,000 vertical feet from that spot to the summit, which climbers typically do in either one or two days. Doing a one-day climb means leaving extremely early in the morning (2 to 3 am is not uncommon) and being on the mountain much of the day, depending on fitness level. A two-day climb typically means an overnight camp at Lake Helen (a flat snowfield at 10,000 feet). May and June are the most common (and typically safest) months to climb Shasta, but weather conditions can change and become perilous any time of year. If a heavy front moves onto the mountain, it’s not uncommon to have white-out conditions and winds in excess of 60 mph. continued on page 30 28 | Enjoy MaY 2013

“You can never underestimate Mt. Shasta,” says Timothy Keating, founder and CEO of SWS Mountain Guides. “It’s a big mountain and it has all the characteristics that big mountains have, including most of the dangers. You definitely need to have a basic skill set, including knowing how to use an ice axe and crampons, and how to self-arrest (stop your slide by digging in with an ice axe). A lot of people go up there and they don’t have that. But one of the reasons we can guide all over the world is we train on Mt. Shasta.” Although there are routes on all sides of the mountain, the majority of climbers take Avalanche Gulch because it’s the most straightforward. However, the gulch can be just as hazardous as any other route if the conditions are wrong, says Keating, who founded SWS Mountain Guides 32 years ago and has summited Shasta more than 100 times. “There’s a reason they call it Avalanche Gulch,” Keating says. “There are substantial avalanches on Shasta and you don’t want to be in Avalanche Gulch when the conditions are wrong.” In addition to basic mountaineering skills , climbers need to rent or purchase equipment such as crampons, crampon compatible boots and an ice axe. Prospective Mt. Shasta climbers should also bring their best fitness to the endeavor. A lot of hiking, including climbing and descending, is a good way to train for the adventure. “The more fit you are, the more you’ll enjoy the experience,” says

HORSES Every year, hundreds of troubled youth walk the streets and school hallways of Shasta County. Some are ignored or forgotten, while others aren’t viewed as kids in need of intervention. Still, a handful are offered the gift of encouragement and unconditional love from a group of local citizens dedicated to making a difference in the life of a child. Ginger Salido and her husband, Bod, dreamed of a farm where abandoned horses and troubled kids could come together to find love, purpose and new direction for their lives. In 2002, the couple stepped out in faith and opened their farm’s gates—and their hearts—to local youth. Exodus Farms in Anderson was born.

E X O D U S FA R M S i n anderson opens i ts doors to troubled y outh For more than 30 years, Duane Helle, program director of Youth for Christ Shasta, a nonprofit, non-denominational youth ministry dedicated to working with junior high and high school students, has worked with youth in various ministries, including Youth for Christ’s Horse Program. The horse program kicked off in 1997 as a joint effort between Helle and local wranglers Tom Orr and Lee Cribbs. Orr and Cribbs had worked with youth at Kidder Creek and Lassen Pines Youth continued on page 34

Camps, where they’d witnessed the life-changing effects a horse can have on a child. Recognizing the benefits of offering a horse camp from a biblical perspective, the trio worked closely with local school administrators to develop a program that introduced underprivileged students to horses and God. Each year, a group of kids selected by principals or counselors is invited to participate. “Horse camp is for kids who’ve never had the opportunity to learn to ride, who would benefit from one-on-one mentorship or who just need an extra bit of encouragement,” says Helle. In 2009, when Salido was asked to help with the horse program, which was then being held at the Redding Rodeo Grounds, she never imagined the camp would move to her farm. But in 2011, Youth for Christ’s horse camp converged on Exodus Farms and has been held there since. For one week in May, a dozen kids, ages 12 to 18, ride a dozen horses known as the “healing herd.” The training they receive helps students renew self-esteem, overcome fears, learn responsibility and accountability, and build respect for themselves and others. From Monday through Friday, volunteers pick up students and drive them to camp where wranglers spend time connecting with them on an eye-to-eye level. This genuine let’s-do-it-together attitude helps kids learn to trust themselves and the horse—an intimidating animal many riders have never seen in real life. “When the kids look at the horse, it looks like this big, insurmountable thing that doesn’t want to have a relationship with them,” says Helle. “But we try to overcome that and show them that we want to have a relationship with them, God wants to have a relationship with them and so does that horse.” Using the horse as a teaching tool, wranglers help youth build self-confidence. “Nobody believes they can do great things if there’s nobody on the sidelines telling them, ‘Yes, you can,’” says Salido. On Saturday, families are invited to a gala horse show and wrangler barbecue where each child is presented with an award and a Bible. “It’s a chance for kids to show what skills they’ve learned and to have a meal with their families,” says Salido. “It doesn’t seem like a big deal to us, but some of these kids don’t get a chance to interact with their parents like this on a daily basis.” Though Salido, Helle and the many volunteers who make horse camp possible may not see the positive effects of their work for years to come, they keep the faith, trust what they are doing is right and encourage the community to do the same. Salido says, “It just takes one person, and it’s not me, to let these kids know they are loved and valued. It’s that person who says, ‘I want to make a difference in a child’s life.’” • •

H O L LY W I L L I A M S , D A U G H T E R O F H A N K W I L L I A M S J R . , CO M E S TO R E D D I N G Holly Williams loves the road she’s traveling right now. It includes her new album, “The Highway,” which features guest appearances by the likes of Jackson Browne, Jakob Dylan, Dierks Bentley and Gwyneth Paltrow. It includes driving from city to city, performing with her husband, multi-instrumentalist Chris Coleman. It’s the positive musical momentum one might expect from the granddaughter of Hank Williams Sr. and the daughter of Hank Williams Jr. “I went through a lot the last few years and had many personal changes—good and bad— that inspired so much of this writing,” says Williams of her new album. “I definitely feel like it’s my first true artistic statement—my first time feeling totally comfortable in my own skin as a singer, writer and performer.” Williams released “The Highway” in February on her own independent label, Georgiana Records. She wrote most of the songs in the spring of 2012, with “The Highway” and “Waiting on June” coming late in the process. The latter details her mother’s parents’ 56-year union from childhood to death, and has been a heavily requested tune in live shows. The song “The Highway” speaks to getting back to something she missed deeply:

“‘The Highway’ is exactly what I was feeling on this record,” she says. “I was dying to get back out there and play these songs and that song poured out of nowhere. I’m loving being on the road and I’ve got songs coming out of my ears. It’s nice to be so excited about music again. You have to have true passion to be touring in a van away from your comfy home and Labradors.” Williams’ previous work includes 2004’s “The Ones We Never Knew” (Universal South) and 2009’s “Here With Me” (Mercury Records). She also sang and co-wrote the tune “Blue is My Heart” on the 2011 release of “The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams,” a compilation produced by Bob Dylan that included Dylan, Levon Helm, Merle Haggard, Jack White, Sheryl Crow, Alan Jackson and others. continued on page 38

“I was beyond honored that Mr. Dylan asked me to be a part of that project,” says the 31-year-old Williams. “I think it was absolutely essential that this was released and the response was amazing. It was a really cool part of Hank’s never-ending story.” Hank Williams Sr. is widely considered the father of contemporary country music. The music resource website describes him this way: “He was a superstar by the age of 25; he was dead at the age of 29. In those four short years, he established the rules for all the country performers who followed him and, in the process, much of popular music.” As if that wasn’t enough of a legacy to follow, Holly’s father, Hank Jr., carved out a huge swath of musical terrain as well, selling millions of records with a boisterous brand of country that included hits like “A Country Boy Can Survive” and “All My Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down).” But Holly, whose half-brother Hank III is also a star, seems unfazed by anyone else’s expectations of who or what she should be. “I want both of (my grandfather’s and father’s) fans to find something in my music they can relate to,” she says. “They were both fiercely independent in their music and made their own way with their own style. I just go out there and play and hope for the best every night. I want to find the fans that connect with my songs, whether or not they are fans of my family.” Country star Tim McGraw is one fan who describes what people are experiencing with Williams’ soulful voice and songs. McGraw told O, The Oprah Magazine that Holly “has the ability to make you believe what she says, to make you feel vulnerable. She’s intense and moody; she puts you in a time and place where you never would have imagined yourself — ­ and then you’re there.” Where Williams really enjoys being right now is in front of audiences of any size. She’s looking forward to the intimacy of the Vintage Wine Bar show in Redding. “I love a small room of listeners, even with just me and my guitar and piano,” she says. “It’s thrilling to be able to talk to them and kind of have a living room experience. I am so excited to come to the beautiful area of Redding and play these tunes and drink some vino.” • Holly Williams and Chris Coleman’s Mother’s Day concert 7 pm May 12 & 13 • Vintage Wine Bar, 1790 Market St., Redding

TREES t r e e o f h e av e n c a mp g r o u n d

The Trees of Heaven The world turns softly Not to spill its lakes and rivers. The water is held in its arms And the sky is held in the water. What is water, That pours silver, And can hold the sky? Hilda Conkling, Poems for a Little Girl, 1920 

Beneath the shade of oak trees and towering pines, a grassy expanse overlooks two unnamed bends of the Klamath River. Willow trees bow down over the rushing water, as the current provides a gentle backdrop of sound for those peering out of their tents in the early morning light. Squirrels dash through their morning chores, while birds hop through branches, greeting the visitors who have spent the night below the Tree of Heaven. The campground rests next to the 263-mile Klamath River, which races from Southern Oregon through Northern California and into the Pacific. Fishermen occupy these banks tempted by the trout and salmon that dart through the water. Kayakers and rafters prepare along the sandy bars for their trips downstream using the area as a base camp. Above Highway 96, the State of Jefferson Scenic Byway passes through the town of Happy Camp, while the rolling hills and sky form a wilderness canopy. The river is the home of the Karuk tribe. These Native Americans still live here, fishing and respecting the traditions of their ancestors. The Hudson’s Bay Company arrived in the 1820s, looking for fur and establishing trails along the river. Gold mining brought more settlers to the area, with the campground once being occupied by Chinese immigrants who sought gold and work with the railroad. The Chinese gave the flat, forested area its name. This calm spot along the river was perfect for farming and growing vegetables that could be sold to the miners. Along with their produce, they planted a tree from their native country, called the Tree of Heaven, using its leaves for medicine.

42 | Enjoy May 2013

The campground continues to carry the name; however, the oak and pines are now the celestial guardians of these grounds. The surrounding hillsides are sparse, a reminder of the excavations which fed doodlebugs on the river. These were floating ore and gold sorters fed by scoop shovel. Now, the hills are perfect vantage points to watch golden eagles chasing their prey, hoping for the jack rabbits to appear in the open. The forest moves in a gradual process to reclaim the land. Campers here enjoy the surrounding 2-million-acre forest, one of the longest free running rivers in California, as well as the 1,100 miles of hiking and equestrian trails within the natural forest. The campground’s 22 camping sites include a volleyball net, a horseshoe pit and a quarter-mile interpretive trail. River access, hiking, fishing and swimming draw outdoor enthusiasts through the summer. The Tree of Heaven is a partner to the river, a respite from the lazy drive along its banks. Boaters begin and end adventures here. Families picnic following an afternoon swim. Anglers compete for the fish that travel by. The site is an entry into another world. Perhaps this is why natural scientist Loren Eiseley said, “If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.” •

There isn’t yet a consensus on how to refer to the intricate and detailed hair styling that comes out of Rue’s Barber Shop in Red Bluff. “People call it hair art because it’s like drawing on people’s heads,” says 21-year-old owner Ruben Aguirre, who goes by Rue. Rue, however, prefers the more modest description of simply “designs.” And one thing is very clear about his business: “If it wasn’t for designs, we’d be just another barber shop.” The designs are simply stunning. From stars to swirls to portraits, he can do it all in hair. And yet he insists he can’t draw on paper. continued on page 46


May 2013 ENJOY | 45

“I’ve been cutting hair since I was 13,” he says. “People at Vista (his middle school) would ask me to line them up.” Last year, he gave people pause to question that assertion when he took second place in the prestigious Barber Battle in Los Angeles as an unknown and first-time contestant. There were eight judges and Rue didn’t know what they would each like to see. Ultimately he decided, “If I do a portrait, it’s going to catch anyone’s attention.” In 45 minutes, he created an incredibly realistic portrait of Al Pacino in Scarface. “There was a lot of paparazzi—they were taking pictures of us the whole night,” he says. A highlight of the event was meeting and being judged by the famous barber, Pacino. “He’s a legend to all barbers,” says Rue, showing a picture of himself with his hero. While Rue has skills that could easily keep him busy and prosperous in big cities, he has intentionally set up shop in Red Bluff, his hometown. He sets himself apart by doing “designs, fades, things that younger people like.” Indeed, there is a youthful vibe to the shop that is done up in red and black with modern furniture and posters of musicians on the walls. “I want to feel like I’m at home,” says Rue, noting that he is meticulous about cleanliness and presentation. Indeed, many feel like they’re at home when they’re at Rue’s. “Now I have a group of people around me watching me do designs,” he says. The shop is often busy, and on weekends, “Most of the time it’s just slammed.” Rue has a friend, Flaco, who he has brought in to attend to customers also. “If I’m not here, he’s here,” he says. The duo are pulling together a team of six barbers trained to do designs to open a shop in Chico. A key to Rue’s success is his ability to keep up on hair trends. “As a barber, you can’t just keep doing hair cuts. You have to keep up on the styles,” he says. “Sometimes it’s a little hard to keep up because there are new styles every week.” There are also styles he has to create to keep up with his customers. “Kids will come in with their Pokemon cards and ask me to do a design from the card,” he laughs.

46 | Enjoy May 2013

“Almost every other person has a beard now,” he notes. “They’re a lot more edged up.

They’re a lot cleaner.” Rue attended barber school at Marinello’s in Chico and quickly began teaching other students the techniques he picked up so quickly. “I’ve been cutting hair since I was 13,” he says. “People at Vista (his middle school) would ask me to line them up.” Some of his friends have moved away but make sure to stop by for a cut when visiting family in town. Today, Rue realizes the impact he can have as a positive role model to kids. He’s switched off the hip hop music he prefers that tends to be laced with profanities and sets a tone by not using profanities himself. “A barber shop’s a barber shop,” he says. “There’s always going to be a lot of jokes going around.” But he’s also realized it’s a place young people flock to not only for their own styles, but to watch and learn. As a father of a 2–year-old, he’s realized that his actions and words can make a positive impact. At his work station, Rue keeps a picture of himself cutting his cousin Juan’s hair on Christmas Eve when they were both just boys. It’s a reminder of how it all started for him and how far both he and his cousin have come. One thing that hasn’t changed, however, is the outcome he always wants to create. “I try to make people happy when they walk out of the chair.” • Rue’s Barber Shop • 333 S.

paco ’ s pantr y cares for cr i tters when linda rios received a $100 check from her uncle for her birthday in 2007, she wanted to do something special with it. Not the kind of special like buying a new pair of shoes, but the kind of special that involves making a meaningful contribution to help others. Rios, who lives in Shingletown, recalls noticing the hidden poverty after relocating to the area from the Midwest. She especially saw a need among seniors and the low income for food, not only for themselves, but for their animal companions. “When I looked at that $100 check from my Uncle Peter, I remember thinking, ‘I can’t do it, all but I can do something to help, and I can live with that,’” she says. That something was to start Paco’s Pantry, a Shingletown pet food bank named in honor of her beloved Chihuahua and traveling companion, Paco, who had died the year before after consuming melamine-tainted dog treats. Rios learned too late that the product had been manufactured outside of the United States, where quality control is less stringent. “I look back and think, ‘How stupid was I?’” says Rios, “but I had no idea. A lot of those products are still on store shelves.” The gift money went to buy dog and cat food (all made in the United States) that Rios portioned into smaller bags she packed into her trunk and took to the food commodities dispensary at Black Butte Elementary School. “I asked if I could distribute it to those in need,” says Rios, whose request was met with skepticism. “The person in charge told me that over a 10-year period, he had four or five animal welfare organizations promise to donate food that had never been delivered.” Rios assured him she was sincere, and he let her stay. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2000, Rios lives on a fixed income herself and understands the struggle seniors face in trying to buy their own food and medication while also feeding and caring for their animal companions. 50 | Enjoy May 2013

Paco’s Pantry “started out on a wing and a prayer,” she says, but has grown to include regular donors who help raise the $500 a month it takes to keep the program running. Even the local Girl Scout troop has helped raise money through candy, cookie and nut sales. Last year they also collected dog and cat food at school and gathered donations from the community. Rios hopes to make the local drive an annual event. Since its founding, the Pantry has increased distribution from 30 bags to 130 bags of pet food each month. “In the beginning, I handed it out to the first people who needed it until it was gone,” she says. “Now it seems I have enough food for everybody every month.” Last year, the Pantry distributed 30,670 pounds of food. A proud supporter of the annual Stand Down for Homeless Vets in October, Rios says hers is the first animal welfare group to help vets with pets. In 2012, she received a commendation for the Pantry’s service to veterans. “100% of our donations go to purchasing dog and cat food,” says Rios. “I don’t take out any residuals for gas or time. It all goes to support the cause. I get emergency calls about six times a month in addition to the regular monthly distribution.” Although multiple sclerosis forced her to leave her nursing career before she was ready, Rios is philosophical. “One door closes and another one opens,” she says. “Paco’s Pantry gets me out of myself every month and has kept me from being in a wheelchair. If not for Paco, I would not have found my mission.” • (530) 474-3099 •

GOING LOCAL IN THE NO R TH STATE christine mitchell would love to wave a magic wand and suddenly create a world where everyone could find a good job and have a true say in government. It would be a place where the interests of powerful corporations didn’t trump the needs of the greater population. As of right now, however, she doesn’t have that kind of pull. So Christine and her husband, Bob, have narrowed their focus to the idea of making a positive difference right in their hometown. They’ve started Going Local, a community gathering place that supports local artists, musicians, food growers and businesses. The nonprofit endeavor is located in an industrial space at 1410 Beltline Road in Redding (the former Mary’s Place restaurant). The couple got the idea for Going Local from Transition United States, a movement that supports self-reliant and self-sustaining communities in the face of challenges like peak oil, climate change and

the ongoing economic crisis. “The idea is that we need to work within our own communities, because big government and big corporations are not going to help us with jobs or the environment,” Mitchell says. “Rather than trying to change the whole world at once, we decided to work within this community.” The Mitchells quickly discovered that an all-ages venue for concerts was an immediate need that Going Local could accommodate. The space has already hosted a number of youth concerts, as well as open mic singer-songwriter and poetry events. “The kids came to us because they don’t have a place to play,” Mitchell says. “We want to provide a safe place for them. Then other musicians discovered we had this spot and they love this spot.” The venue, which makes clear its alcohol- and drug-free policy with continued on page 54 May 2013 ENJOY | 53

numerous signs, hosts an open mic music event from 1 to 4 pm on Sundays and a drum circle from 5 to 7 pm on Saturdays. An arts, crafts and collectibles fair takes place from 10 am to 3 pm the first Saturday and Sunday of every month. Vendor tables range from $10 to $18. On May 25, the venue will host an open mic stand-up comedy evening. Talks and informational films will also be a solid part of the Going Local schedule. The venue is currently open Friday through Sunday. “It has an atmosphere and ambiance that really lends itself to acoustic music,” says longtime North State songwriter Nick Ciampi. “Now we can start pushing an acoustic venue in a way that hasn’t really happened before. Plus, I love what they’re doing for the community. They’re raising community awareness.” Monthly concerts featuring a variety of area songwriters are already underway, says Ciampi, who has long been involved with the North State Songwriters group. Wireless Internet and brewed coffee and tea are available for visitors. The space also collects food and non-perishable items for bags that it distributes to homeless in the area. Currently, the Mitchells’ only form of revenue is accepting donations to help with rent on the space. Eventually, they foresee selling food and a full array of espresso drinks on a “what you can pay basis.” Providing a venue for local growers to sell food is on hold until the proper permits are secured. “All different kinds of people have come in, and what everyone tends to say is that they feel so comfortable in here,” Mitchell says. “That’s what we want. We want to be inclusive. We want to promote local business because it keeps the money in the community. We want to support local growers, because that does the same thing, plus it promotes healthy eating. If we work to help the community, it’s going to help everyone in the long run.” • Going Local • 1410 Beltline Road, Redding (530) 244-4699, (530) 917-0771

CURRY IS THE MARKETING AND SALES DIRECTOR of Sierra Nevada Cheese Company in Willows, and along with owners Ben Gregerson and John Dundon, is setting out to meet a consumer need for wholesome, natural, artisan dairy products that provide a connection to the dairy producer. Their new line of Graziers cheeses uses milk from two North State grass-fed dairies. The stories of the farmers are marketed as much as the raw cheeses developed with the milk, making the field-to-fork connection clear to discerning foodies. “Of course, you have to start with quality raw milk,” says Gregerson. “That goes hand in hand with fresh grass grazing.” Mark and Brenda Alderson, one of two milk suppliers for the Graziers line, have transitioned back to the pasture rotational grazing system that Mark’s dad used when he founded the dairy. “My dad was pretty smart,” laughs Mark. “I wish he was around for me to tell him that.” Mark took over the family dairy he was raised on when his father died at a young age. Thinking he would modernize production, he moved into what is today considered conventional dairy farming. He was only 26 when his father died, but had already bought the dairy next door at age 17, using money earned as a relief milker on neighboring farms.

In later years, he took a class in intense rotational pasture grazing and realized it would only be a few extra steps beyond what his dad had done as a dairyman. He also started looking at the overall impact of his business on the environment and says, “I was one of the first farms in California to certify environmentally friendly.” This distinction is one Alderson Dairy has held for 15 years. This certification, and the family’s commitment to being a grassfed dairy, have made Alderson Dairy a premier supplier of milk to the Sierra Nevada Cheese Company. “We delivered cheese out of our trucks for a couple of years,” Gregerson says of the business he and Dundon founded in Sacramento. Realizing they wanted to grow their own business and expand their lines of cultured products, they moved their families north to Willows. “We moved up here just a handful of us and pretty much had to start from scratch,” says Gregerson of their 1998 transition. Today they have 65 employees and distributors in 10 states. Their largest markets are the Bay Area, Portland and Seattle. “Many of our best sellers are the raw cheeses and jacks,” says Gregerson. And while the business was founded on cheese, it has grown to include a European style butter, yogurts and cream cheese continued on page 58

that takes three to four days to process. “We are specialty plants within a plant,” he says. “We’re four small plants in one.” They process milk from cows and goats on neighboring dairies. “We came out with the first Greek goat yogurt,” says Gregerson. Their chèvre took first place last year in the American Cheese Society competition. Gregerson’s parents emigrated from Denmark and had a fluid dairy that supplied many businesses in the North Highlands area. At age 27, Gregerson set out for Denmark for a couple of years to attend a dairy technical school, where he learned to make havarti and fontina cheeses. He then moved on to the University of Manitoba to focus on cheddar. Since founding Sierra Nevada Cheese, he says, “From one year to the next, nothing’s been the same.” Growth has included new product lines and markets. Still, he sees great promise and excitement in the new Graziers line. “That’s where we’d like to see the whole line develop,” he says. Sierra Nevada Cheese products are available in the specialty sections of North State businesses such as Holiday and Tops Markets, The Olive Pit in Corning and S&S Produce and Chico Natural Foods in Chico. While no store carries the full line of products, they are all

available to the public at the plant in Willows. A look inside the Graziers line shows consumers the net result of two farmers who have grown up in the dairy business and are expanding their businesses with a fresh approach. Says Gregerson, “It’s truly one of those farm-to-table stories.” • Sierra Nevada Cheese • 6505 County Road 39 • Willows (530) 934-8660 • Melissa Mendonca is passionate about adding stamps to her passport and just as enthusiastic about her hometown of Red Bluff.

Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), the iconic “Lady with the Lamp,” continues to inspire nurses and the field of nursing a century after her death. During the Crimean War in the mid-1800s, Nightingale established standards of practice that remain the foundation of today’s patient care. Nursing is a growing profession that is supported by two flourishing education programs in the North State, with Shasta College and Simpson University working in partnership with local hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. After years of effort by the American Nurses Association, President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation in 1982 declaring May 6 to be National Recognition Day for Nurses. Throughout May, special attention is given to those in the nursing profession. May 6-12 is National Nurses Week, and May 12 commemorates the birth of Florence Nightingale. Though she enthusiastically describes the everchanging and progressive nature of the profession, Jan Dinkel, dean of Simpson University’s School of Nursing, says nursing retains the basic foundations laid by Nightingale. The symbolism and traditions of Nightingale “are forever,” says Dinkel. “She instituted so many important, very basic elements that are still a necessary part of healing.” continued on page 62

Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion, as hard a preparation, as any painter's or sculptor's work; for what is the having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God's spirit? It is one of the Fine Arts: I had almost said, the finest of Fine Arts. ~Florence Nightingale Dinkel designed the building and helped establish the Health Sciences department for Shasta College in downtown Redding before being tapped to create and oversee Simpson University’s School of Nursing. The first graduating class celebrated its pinning ceremony in April with symbolism in the ceremony, such as the lighting of their lamps harking back to Nightingale. Simpson University offers a bachelor’s degree in Nursing. A new science and nursing building is slated for completion in the fall of 2014, when Dinkel projects the expansion of their enrollment that currently only admits in the spring for the eightsemester program. Wanda Spratt, Shasta College Dean of Health Sciences, began her career as an Army field nurse in Vietnam. Her journey has taken her through a variety of positions in facilities around the world, including pediatrics, obstetrics, emergency room and trauma, and eventually teaching, leading to her current tenure at Shasta College. She now encourages a new generation as they prepare for the rewards and challenges of a career in nursing. Spratt highlights the multitude of opportunities for any age and every stage of life, including positions beyond the frontline of work with patients that include research, teaching and consulting. Shasta College offers three levels of certification, including Certified Nursing Assistant and Home Health Care Aide, Licensed Vocational Nurse, and Registered Nurse. Shasta Regional Medical Center and Simpson University have partnered for the seventh year to honor nurses, nursing students and other healthcare professionals at an event on May 10. The theme this year is “Delivering Quality and Innovation in Patient Care.” Sponsored by Shasta Regional Medical Center, the event is hosted by Simpson University in the Heritage Life Center from 11 am to 1:30 pm beginning with a vendor fair and networking meet-and-greet. A buffet lunch begins at noon followed by the message from keynote speaker Renee Thompson, who speaks from 20 years of healthcare experience in a variety of roles. An educator and author, she is “committed to helping nurses become heroes by taking a leading role in ensuring patients receive the care they deserve through knowledge, competence, caring and compassion.” Event Coordinator Jonie Wade says, “The objective of the event is to celebrate the profession of nursing. We want our nurses to know how much we value and appreciate them,” says Wade. Register for the free event at Continuing education units will be offered. •

as a cop, Neil Shaw dealt with frightening situations and dangerous people on a regular basis. He was in law enforcement, just like his brother and his father before him, and he knew that confronting death and despair was part of the job description. Unbeknownst to Shaw, the daily exposure to all that adversity and trauma was taking a toll. He was changing, and not for the better. His catalog of symptoms—night sweats, disturbing thoughts, not sleeping well—ultimately prompted a psychiatrist’s diagnosis: post traumatic stress disorder. “It’s like being hit with a ton of bricks,” Shaw says. “My first thought was, ‘Me? That’s for the other guys, the ones from Vietnam.’ It was very embarrassing for me to talk about it in the beginning. When you are diagnosed with PTSD, you tend to beat yourself up. You’re supposed to be the strong one for everybody else. We’re used to being the helpers.”

Shaw quickly learned that, unlike pneumonia, diabetes or some other disease, there’s a stigma involved when a mental illness is diagnosed. Rather than retreating to the shadows, Shaw bravely chose to confront the fears and misunderstandings by simply talking about them. The Brave Faces Portrait Gallery project has given Shaw and a couple dozen others a platform to tell their stories about mental illness, treatment, hope and recovery. The project is part of a Shasta County Health and Human Services Agency effort to remove the shame that so often accompanies mental illness and suicide. It is funded through the Mental Health Services Act. Marc Dadigan, a community education specialist coordinating the project, says Brave Faces allows participants to share their stories through multimedia presentations and intimate portraits. “I’ve always felt telling true stories of real people has the most impact in reducing the stigma of mental illness. Studies have shown that it is effective, and even continued on page 66

more so when you get a chance to meet your neighbors,” Dadigan says. The stigma is not only unfair and ill-informed, it is a roadblock to treatment. Dadigan says studies indicate a mere 20 percent of people with mental illness are getting treatment, and a lot of that is due to stigma. Through his work with Brave Faces participants, Dadigan says a theme has emerged: “What always seems to come out is people want the public to know that even if you have a serious mental health issue, you can get better,” he says. “Medication is part of it, but support is needed too. Each Brave Faces story is a road map of how they got better. Someone without a lot of experience with mental health can see that, even with a diagnosis of mental illness, it doesn’t mean you can’t ever get better.” “The program’s great. That’s the bottom line,” Shaw says. “It sheds a lot of light on things and takes the mystery away from it. It lets people know you can be diagnosed with something and there’s treatment out there for it.” Brave Faces is more than a year old and continues to grow. The portraits and stories have been exhibited at galleries, offices and businesses throughout Shasta County, and some participants are part of a speakers’ bureau that has made about 30 presentations to various service clubs, committees and organizations throughout Shasta County. The message is getting through. Dadigan shared an inspiring note he recently received: “Hello Brave Faces, I wanted to say thank you to all the presenters that spoke at the event. I have had thoughts of suicide recently and now realize that I need to take the proper steps to get help. After the presentation I made an effort to tell someone in my family my feelings. This brought out her own “secret” that she was suicidal at one point as well and got counseling. This was the first time that she shared her “secret” with the family. We then had the most genuine conversation I have ever had into the early morning talking about friends, family, and recovery. I am now starting to realize I have a lot of people in my life that will help me get through this, including some helpful strangers! Thank you all for sharing your stories with me and the community. You are really making a difference.” A storytelling presentation is scheduled from 6 to 7:30 pm May 23 at the Redding Library. Brave Faces portraits will be exhibited at the library throughout May in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month. Burney resident Kristen McChristian, who suffers from PTSD and

an anxiety disorder, recognized some friends of hers in the Brave Faces gallery and decided to participate and tell her story. McChristian says a traumatic and abusive upbringing led to severe emotional and physical challenges later in life that were compounded by heroin addiction. With help from a therapist and Kiki, her psychiatric service dog, McChristian says she has reached a stable place in life and will mark four years of sobriety next month. “I wanted to tell my story because I’m a survivor. Every time I talk about my story, that little bright light grows and gets brighter. I want to change the stigma of mental illness and let everybody know I have a great relationship with my therapist. “Brave Faces is so powerful. Everybody has their own style in how they share their story. That’s what makes Brave Faces so cool. We’re all individuals, we’ve all been diagnosed with mental illness, but we tell our stories differently,” McChristian says. Mental health problems touch almost every family in Shasta County, Dadigan says, but they can be overcome. “There are tough times everyone goes through in life. We can all use tools to help us get through.” • A Brave Faces Portrait Gallery Storytelling Presentation 6-7:30 pm May 15 at the Redding Library, 1100 Parkview Ave. On the web: National Suicide Prevention Helpline: (800) 273-8255

Dr. Kaplan, Julie, and Kathy all agreed that Sculptra Aesthetic and Botox were the best options for my busy life. I have had 3 Sculptra treatments and I am thrilled with the changes that took place steadily since I began the treatments. I have received several comments about how refreshed and happy I look, but no one is able to tell what I have “had done.” I am very happy I came to Disappearing Act because they are so friendly, experienced, and talented. It is clear they truly care about their patients. My permanent cosmetic experience with Mary Bond at Disappearing Act was also refreshing.

Botox® Benefits: Botox® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles to temporarily treat moderate to severe frown lines. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes those lines to form. Benefits of Sculptra Aesthetic: Not an overnight miracle. Long lasting. Not a quick-fix. The first facial injectablethat gives you subtle results over time. Replacing lost collagen. Giving you a more natural-looking appearance, without giving you away. A full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last more than two years. So you have more time to see how sensational subtle can be.

FASHION FO R WA R D WITH C R EATIVE COLLA B O R ATION the serenity, beautiful trees, palatial grasses and gently swinging white paper lanterns at The White House on Churn Creek are a sharp contrast to the bubbling energy and passion brewing within its guest house. At 7:12 am, the room is buzzing with music, hair stylists, makeup artists, photographers, designers, models with runway-ready, avant-garde style concepts—and two very excited producers ready to see their vision come to fruition. Emily Williams remembers the day her best friend Andrea Borden said, “I have a crazy idea. Let’s have a wedding, but not get married.” Williams didn’t know at that moment just what Borden was talking about, but she knew it was something brilliant. Borden, a local photographer, had imagined a photo shoot with a secret garden theme — a perfect marriage of nature and fantasy. This photo shoot would become an opportunity for “creatives,” artists and small businesses to work together to birth something beautiful. Borden and Williams are no strangers to collaborative work. Both women are graduates of Anderson New Tech High School, where the concept of “working continued on page 70 May 2013 ENJOY | 69

together” was drilled into their heads. This creative opportunity, which brought together more than 20 people, came from the desire to create a culture of collaboration. “When we do something together, it’s bigger than ourselves, and it’s incredible,” Borden says. This exuberant bunch of entrepreneurs has come together out of a mutual passion for artistry, fashion and creative expression — and an immense respect for each other’s talents. The tangible benefit of their collaboration, however, will come in the finished product — a photographic portfolio that will be shared amongst them, and will undoubtedly draw prospective clients to their respective businesses. “I can’t design dresses, but there are amazing people who can,” Borden says enthusiastically. Sarah Salinas of Crush Salon is busy at work creating a peach-colored, natureinspired makeup concept for Bailie Altemus, a first-time model. Altemus, who is balancing a large hollow ball made of curly willow on the right side of her head, and has been doing so for several hours, hasn’t complained once. “This is why we go into the business—to do things like this. This is an opportunity you just don’t pass up,” says Salinas. Cody LaFranchi and Jeremiah Riley of Painted Beauties, who have been working in the realm of hair and makeup for more than a decade, calmly and seamlessly work together to apply live moss to Veronica Shiell’s face and clavicle. Shiell, who is wearing lipstick in a striking mix of forest and sage greens, sits patiently as LaFranchi and Riley work their magic. She will embody the color green in a one-of-a-kind ensemble designed by Kirstin Mallard of Altered Wing Studio. Shayla Reyes’ hair is aglow with vibrant blue hair extensions, creating a sharp contrast with her own dark brown tresses. Alyssa Ecklund of Crush Salon, who styled Reyes’ hair, credits “a lot of back-combing” and blue spray beads, which catch the light streaming in from the guest house window, with the stunningly beautiful finished product. Amy Thompson of Crush Salon has applied an exquisite blue makeup concept to Reyes’ face. The ensemble by local designer Robin Fator of Dark Pony Designs will allow Reyes to fully personify the color blue. Kyla Olson, another first-time model, sits quietly in a chair as Nikki Gibson of Nail Candy Salon adorns her face in shades of yellow. The morning sunlight, clearly working in favor of photographers Amy Jensen and Jamie Solorio, illuminates Olson’s cheekbones, inspiring the two photographers to take turns snapping away. Dani Vierra, a petite model donning long, pink hair extensions, admits they are “kind of stabby” with a smile and a shrug. Her dress needs a last-minute adjustment. Fator quickly adds a piece of lace ribbon as a halter for Vierra’s pink ensemble. She is a picture-perfect marionette. Breana Rich’s black painted veil has been created with makeup, applied directly to her face by the deft hand of Tricia Davidge, stylist and photographer.

Stevie Leon, making her modeling debut at the tender age of 4, quietly shakes her head “no” as Alycia Barrett, owner of Nail Candy Salon, tries to snap a photo. Once in her stunning crown and white dress, created by Ginger Mallard of Altered Wing Studio, she seems more up for the challenge. On the lawn of The White House, Stevie gently nuzzles Flaga, a 30-year-old Icelandic horse whose warm breath adds a welcome mysticism to the cool morning air. Stevie sweetly asks her grandmother, “Where is Flaga’s horn?” Everyone within earshot can’t help but smile, knowing just how magical this moment truly is. • Kimberly N.

“I figured, if you want to be a different fish, you’ve got to get out of the school. And seeing the way the other fish were going I sure didn’t want to be in there. Can you imagine a fish that would be serious about its bubble? It would choke to death.” — Captain Beefheart

T h at 1 G u y P l ay s i n c h i co Better known by his alter ego That 1 Guy, Mike Silverman invented and is musical master of an amazing seven-foot metal contraption he has dubbed The Magic Pipe. He is a classically trained double bass player who attended the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and developed a career in the progressive jazz scene in the ‘90s, performing live and as a studio musician. Silverman developed his own style of playing and gained a reputation as a one-man rhythm section, incorporating traditional and slap-bass playing with percussive elements using the body of the instrument. “I played very percussion like, banging on the body of the instrument like a drum set. Playing the strings in a very percussion manner, lots of slapping, playing with sticks and banging my bows on the strings and body of the instrument.” When he began to feel limited by the instruments he had trained on and a heavy schedule of playing and recording for other people, he started to devise and build the new instrument that would allow him the range to create his own music. He built a system of electronically-wired steel plumbing, shaped somewhat like a harp, with a thick bass string wired from top to bottom and a hole that billows smoke during the climax of his live shows. continued on page 76 May 2013 ENJOY | 75

The end result was the Magic Pipe, a pair of steel pipes connected by adjustable joints, with each pipe hosting an orchestral bass string. It’s roughly seven feet tall and features 13 trigger points, which can be mapped to various musical sound effects or samples. The front pipe uses a low C string, while the rear pipe’s string achieves more tenor ranged notes. The pipes themselves produce various percussive sounds while Silverman slaps, plucks or bows the strings; he occasionally uses a drum stick to sound the strings and pipes at the same time. Although based on his double bass experience in building the pipe, he also borrowed from the historical gutbucket and diddley bow instruments built during earlier periods of history. “The crazy thing that I discovered, when I started researching the one-string instrument thing, was the idea that they had existed in cultures around the world forever.” As he begin to tour and play the instrument, Silverman continued to add sound elements to the it. His Magic Boot is a scorpion-emblazoned cowboy boot, which is wired and fed through the pipe’s audio lines. It is then played as a percussive instrument by tapping on the sole while pinching the boot’s opening to achieve different sounds, similar to an African talking drum. And there’s The Magic Saw, which is wired into the main effects box. It utilizes a small adhesive speaker and is played percussively with a violin bow. Above this mix of industrial-sounding techno-funk and electronica, Silverman delivers rapid-fire, darkly humorous, surrealistic and poetic lyrics. “When I listened to music as a younger person. My favorite rock band was Rush and I would just set and stare at the abstract lyrics and listen to their music at night with my headphones on. Later, I discovered Captain Beefheart and that blew my mind because I had already started to write lyrics in sort of an abstract way where I would just let words, shapes and sounds just kind of happen because I loved the sounds. It was really weird because I was writing songs

this way and discovered Beefheart and I said, ‘Wow, somebody else has been doing this forever and has already legitimized it.’” Lately, he has immersed himself in the study of magic and sleight of hand, having decided to incorporate this into his live shows. “So much of my music has miraculous qualities to it because it’s hard to tell what’s going on. There are lots of sleights of hand and sonic misdirection. It feels like I was meant to add magic to the performance. There’s little pieces of my act that just keep evolving, and it’s never anything that is pre-thought out.” • That 1 Guy at the El Rey Theatre, Downtown Chico • May 8 at 9 pm Special Guests: Captain Ahab’s Motorcycle Club

Hope is the Key

S hasta women ’ s refuge and fam i ly just i ce center ’ s camp hope It is often well-hidden, but there is a key that can free a child from the destructive cycle of family violence. That key is hope. And there’s an ample supply at Camp Hope. Hosted by the Shasta Women’s Refuge and Family Justice Center, last summer’s inaugural camp wrapped its arms around 84 children exposed to family violence, with the help of 27 teen leaders, Family Justice Center staff and other supportive adults. This year, organizers hope to have 100 campers and 44 youth leaders at the June event. Of the 80 Family Justice Centers around the nation, only Shasta’s and San Diego’s have incorporated a camping and mentoring component, says Casey Gwinn, president of the National Family Justice Center Alliance. Shasta’s Camp Hope had twice as many campers as San Diego’s and was the first to use youth counselors. “The level of energy and level of passion was so impressive,” says Gwinn, who spent the week at Shasta’s Camp Hope with his wife, Beth.

Gwinn was inspired by the community engagement. San Diego’s camp is mostly funded by corporate sponsors, but in Shasta County, businesses, faith community leaders and numerous volunteers banded together to make camp happen. “We need to take what Shasta is doing and expand it,” Gwinn says. “(Shasta Family Justice Center Director) Michael Burke and his team raised our model 10 notches.” Angela McClure of the Shasta County District Attorney’s office was the camp’s director. “This wouldn’t have happened without Angela’s vision and passion for youth,” Burke says. Gwinn and his wife were so moved by Shasta’s effort that they sold their home and bought 612 acres to start a ranching operation; proceeds will fund the nonprofit Camp Hope California. “Our goal is to have three venues—one in Central/Southern California, Kidder Creek (for Shasta’s Camp) and one in Lake Tahoe. The vision has become quite big as a result of the Shasta experience,” he says. continued on page 80

Every child who lives with family violence should be able to go to camp every summer, Gwinn says. “It’s all about hope,” he says. “Children who are growing up in homes with domestic violence lose hope. They can’t see beyond the weekend or beyond trying to keep their mother safe.” Camp Hope provides a pathway for them to set goals. One youth leader told a 12-year-old camper that she was going to Princeton University, and the girl did not know what college was. “In the midst of her dad being in jail and her mom being in a domestic violence shelter, this counselor was introducing the concept of a goal, and it was real,” Gwinn says. People can overcome trauma with resiliency and competency— “believing in yourself, others and your dreams,” Gwinn says. “Our greatest focus needs to be on the children. The plan has to be on breaking the cycle early. It costs $44,000 to keep a child in the California Youth Authority and $51,000 to house someone in state prison. For $500, you can send a kid to camp. It’s a bargain.” Camp’s life-changing effects aren’t just felt by the campers. Burke called it “the most meaningful work week of my life.” Volunteer Laural Park adds, “We didn’t realize the effect it was going to have on all of us. I told the youth leaders, ‘You’re a lot like soldiers who are getting back from war. Your families have no clue what we’ve been through.’ None of those boys will ever lay a hand on a woman, and none of those girls will tolerate it.”

Youth leader Morgan Ostergren, a senior at Enterprise High School, called the experience “unbelievable.” “My girls text me all the time. One little boy totally grabbed my heart, and he does stuff with our family—he carves pumpkins with us, we take him to the movies,” Ostergren says. She is one of many youth who changed their career plans because of their experience at Camp Hope, and now wants to work with children. “I am so impressed with the compassion and energy these teens bring to our community,” Burke says. “These amazing young adults stayed part of our organization even after camp ended.” Adult volunteers also watched their own hearts double in size. “We care about these kids. We love them, respect them, honor them. We empowered the kids to feel safe, trust us and have fun, and they did,” Park says. “I stood there on that bank and saw kids laughing and playing, eating good foods, like normal happy kids. That was so cool.” Jean King, executive director of the Shasta Women’s Refuge and Family Justice Center, says domestic violence is generational. “Camp Hope is designed to break that cycle by showing kids from abusive families that there is a another way,” King says. • To sponsor a child: (530) 243-8868 •

It’s been a few months since I completed Shasta Regional Medical Center’s Go REDding Challenge, and I’m still being asked, almost daily, if I’m still vegan. I will answer that question, but let’s start with the point of the vegan challenge. The goal over five weeks was to eat more whole foods and prove a healthy diet can positively change your body. I love meat and I love to eat, so this was not a challenge I took lightly. Before adopting the vegan lifestyle, I started with baseline blood tests for cholesterol, glucose and triglycerides, and I was weighed. I also met with Shasta Regional’s Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator Joanne Tippin. She supplied information about what veganism is, and what foods are truly vegan. She also made recommendations about protein intake, and from what sources it should come (men should receive less protein from soy than women). Basically, if a product comes from an animal or insect, it’s a no-no. It must come from the earth. That means no meat, no cheese, no milk, no yogurt, no eggs and technically, not even honey. So, what the heck CAN you eat? As it turns out, a lot: fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, nuts, soy and so much more. The first few weeks were a bit of a challenge, but I began to try new foods I would have totally ignored in the past. Falafel, hummus, quinoa and almond milk plus new breads, grains, fruits and vegetables all made it onto my plate. After trying several vegan cheeses, I found one (Daya) that closely mirrored the taste and texture of real cheese. It even melts the same, so I learned to make a mean vegan pizza! A friend suggested I purchase “meatless ground.” I know that sounds disgusting, but it looks, feels and tastes just like ground beef. I made tacos one night for dinner, and my wife, Jane, and our dinner guests had no idea it wasn’t actual meat. Ditto for some amazing chili. All major grocery stores have natural foods aisles and carry some vegan foods, but if you’re serious about having some of your favorites in vegan form, Orchard Nutrition was loaded with resources. I had a huge hankering for sweets about two weeks into the challenge, and I located vegan brownie mix (they were delicious and super moist). Most chocolate is off limits because of the milk added, but some dark chocolate is fine, and Oreo cookies are vegan! For those jokesters… I heard the same vegan quip over and over when people learned about my diet: “Did you know vegan is Native American for ‘bad hunter’?” Got it. Time for some new vegan jokes! So, am I still eating vegan? I like a good steak, so the answer is no, but I am eating more fruits and vegetables, less meat and I’ve incorporated many of the new foods into my current diet. I learned a great deal about healthy whole foods, my own body and how most people’s attitudes attach a stigma to being vegan. The results from the blood tests don’t lie. I lost eight pounds in five weeks, and I just plain felt great! It is recommended you speak to your doctor and/or dietitian before making a drastic change in diet.

“… I remember the feeling of joy that came over me, knowing I had made something unique. ”

Kimberly Nicole Bonéy Éclectique Jewelry








ENJOY: Kimberly, in addition to being a wife, mother, freelance writer and employee at Enjoy the Store, you’re also a creative designer. When did you start making jewelry? Kimberly: I first began making jewelry as a little girl for our church bazaar – I had my own booth where I sold my creations. I was around 10 years old. Even then, I remember the feeling of joy that came over me, knowing I had made something unique. For many years, I didn’t do anything with regard to jewelry making. Then, in February 2010, my collection, Éclectique, made its debut at my store, The Kimberly Nicole Boutique. I still get excited each time an idea for a fabulous piece of jewelry comes into my mind. ENJOY: How did you decide that this could be a profitable business for you? Kimberly: It was in 2008, when I opened my store. I had the designs of lots of local artists on consignment, in addition to the jewelry that I purchased outright from my vendors. I always admired the sheer variety of what came into the boutique. Each artist had their own unique perspective. I have always had an innate desire to create and a passion for fabulous jewelry, and I knew that somehow it was bound to manifest itself in something beautiful. I’m very grateful that there are other women who appreciate what I have to offer. ENJOY: What inspires you when you are making jewelry? Kimberly: There is nothing like a visit to the city, a glance at a fashion magazine, a moment alone with nature or a trip to a vintage, antique or thrift shop to inspire my creativity. I love vibrant colors, interesting textures and vintage elements. Skeleton keys, chandelier crystals, old buttons, vintage lace and random funky old things catch my eye when I least expect it. Sometimes I will have a piece for ages before I know just what the piece wants me to do with it. I try to let the piece guide me. What I start off with in my mind and the finished product are not always one and the same, but when it’s complete, I’ll love everything about it — or it’s back to the drawing board.

ENJOY: Where is your jewelry for sale, besides Enjoy the Store? Kimberly: My jewelry is also available at Enjoy the Store in Red Bluff, and at Boheme Salon and Spa (961 Dana Drive) in Redding. Also, local markets like Roses and Rust Vintage Home & Garden Market in April and October at the Redding Convention Center and The Burlap Harlot Show, which takes place May 11 at the Shasta District Fairgrounds in Anderson. I’m also available for shopping by appointment, home shows, private parties and special events. I’m in the process of developing an online store as well. ENJOY: What do people love most about your jewelry? Kimberly: It’s sometimes bold, sometimes simplistic, often colorful and incorporates unique elements in an unexpected way. It encourages those who wear it to be bold, free and utterly fearless. In a world where so many feel their only option is to fall in line with the status quo, Éclectique reminds people that they should always wear what they love – and make no apologies for it. ENJOY: Why is jewelry an important piece of a woman’s wardrobe? Kimberly: Jewelry should be a conversation piece. It’s what people may first notice about you, and what they are likely to remember about you long after you leave the room. It instantly adds glamour, sophistication and a sense of confidence to an ensemble. It’s an adornment that brings out the very best in a woman. ENJOY: How do you balance your many responsibilities and still find time to explore your creativity? Kimberly: Although I miss having my store, I’ve found that not having the overhead and responsibility of the storefront has allowed my creativity to flourish. In addition to writing and designing jewelry, I’ve expanded my business to include vintage and “upcycled” furniture and home décor. I am grateful to God for the blessing of being able to do what I love in so many capacities. •

Bidwell Mansion is a site of important historical significance to the state of California and a source of great pride to the citizens of Chico and the surrounding community. In mid-2011, the California Department of State Parks announced its intention to close Bidwell Mansion State Historic Park to the public. Fundraising and the discovery of state funds have allowed public access to continue three days a week through 2014. The Bidwell Mansion Community Project is a 501c3, working in conjunction with the Bidwell Mansion Association (a 501c3 dedicated to education and interpretation and a cooperating association to Bidwell Mansion State Historic Park). Its common goal is to keep Bidwell Mansion open to the public and provide educational experiences for citizens and children. Through coordinated efforts in fundraising and budget development, the project is working with State Parks to prevent the closure of the Bidwell Mansion State Historic Park and to develop a plan for sustained operation over the next three to five years and beyond.

get involved: Donations may be made directly to Bidwell Mansion Community Project at P.O. Box 496, Chico, CA, 95927 to seed fundraising campaigns, events and a strategic plan to keep Bidwell Mansion open to the public. For further information, please email or go to
