Burt was a Harley guy who loved nothing more than a long ride on a beautiful road, until a bad crash left him with a banged up helmet and broken ribs. An x-ray showed a small area in the lung that needed more attention, so he had an immediate chest CT at MD Imaging, where our doctors identified lung cancer in its first stage. Thanks to early detection, Burt is healthy and back on the open road…with a new helmet. | 530.243.1297

SEPTEMBER 2013 Crisp evenings, green leaves turning to crimson and gold, the chatter of eager schoolchildren­­—oh, how we love the fall. We’re celebrating two of the North State’s most dynamic landmarks this month— Shasta Dam construction began 75 years ago, and Whiskeytown Dam was dedicated by John F. Kennedy 50 years ago. If you’ve wakeboarded across Lake Shasta or enjoyed a relaxing day on picture-perfect Whiskeytown’s shores, you’ll enjoy the tales of how these recreational paradises came to be. Legendary Boz Scaggs brings his diverse repertoire to the Cascade Theatre this month, and we’ll share the musical journey that brought him to where he is today. We’ll also provide a close-up of one of our local superstars—television news anchor Jennifer Scarborough, who keeps us all in the know about what’s new (while raising four young boys, no less). Looking to stretch your legs? Take your bike up to Siskiyou County, where you can explore your choice of numerous trails that cater to folks of all ability levels, whether you’re an expert cyclist or a family looking for a leisurely ride. You’ll get your workout for the day while enjoying some of the North State’s finest scenery. Meanwhile, we’ll give you some tips on ensuring your fall wardrobe is fashion-forward, along with a tasty idea for making good use of that basil and zucchini that has overrun your garden. To celebrate the new school year, we are showcasing the winners of the brand-new Young Writers and Artists Contest, sponsored by the Shasta County Writers Forum and Enjoy Magazine. Well-crafted writing is our business, and it’s a joy to provide an opportunity for up-and-coming authors to shine and be recognized. We hope you’re as impressed as we were with the caliber of talent we discovered. Relish these last few weeks of summer, embrace the start of fall, and enjoy!

Shasta Dam is as big and powerful as public works projects come. Weighing in at a hefty 15 million tons, it easily keeps 4.5 million acre-feet of water in place for California’s thirsty Central Valley while its spinning turbines generate hydroelectric power that’s distributed to 15 western states. But behind the 6.5 million cubic yards of concrete, the mighty penstocks, the powerhouse and the 602-foottall spillway are the men who built Shasta Dam, their families and those who stayed on to transform the boomtowns into thriving communities. They are the ones being celebrated this month as the Bureau of Reclamation, the Shasta Lake Heritage and Historical Society and the city of Shasta Lake mark Shasta Dam’s 75th anniversary with a week of events culminating Saturday, Sept. 21, with a community barbecue, live music, dedications and a lighted boat parade.4 continued on page 16

“I think this is a great opportunity to bring the community together,” says Shari Harral, Shasta Dam’s public affairs specialist. “The whole community was born through the construction of Shasta Dam and I think it’s wonderful to take the opportunity to recognize the engineering marvel of this structure, the benefits from the Central Valley Project, and to honor the remaining dam builders and show them our appreciation.” Construction of Shasta Dam officially began on Sept. 21, 1938, and Harral says organizers decided to commemorate the start of the dam rather than the completion to ensure as many retired workers as possible could attend. The workers, now in their late 80s and 90s, were the strapping young lads eager for steady work after years of the Great Depression. They cleared brush, built roads, crushed rock, dug tunnels, set rigging and poured the millions of yards of concrete that went into construction of the dam. “There are very few of them left and that’s why we’re celebrating the start of the construction, to honor their tenacity and hard work. They put their hearts and souls into this,” Harral says. “I’ve had the honor of talking with them, and it was so truly different back then, going through the Depression and a war, and it came in under budget and ahead of schedule. Through tenacity and pride, they completed this project.” Planning for the celebration started more than a year ago, says Darlene Brown of the Shasta Lake Heritage and Historical Society. “We want to do it right. 75 years only comes around once.” Brown says she’s looking forward to the Saturday luncheon with the dam workers and the “dam kids” families. Organizers hope a dozen or so retired workers will be able to attend a luncheon and join bureau officials on a special tour of the dam the men helped build. Retired dam workers are treated to a luncheon during the annual Damboree, where they get a chance to rekindle old friendships and reminisce. Some of those remembrances and oral histories were recorded in 2008 and have been added to a film the historical society produced. Volume Two of “Hard Times, Hard Work” titled “Shasta Dam, Dam Workers and Those Dam Kids,” will be screened Sept. 18-19 at the Visitors Center. continued on page 18 16 | Enjoy SEPTEMBER 2013

“I think the people will just love it,” Brown says. “I have some old footage from 1941 that a friend sent me. It was taken from the top of the head tower, and there’s a guy riding a beam across the river.” The video also includes personal snapshots taken during the construction years. Organizers also are looking toward the dam’s future with “The Big Idea” science and engineering contest for Gateway Unified School District students in middle and high school. The top 16 entries will be displayed all week in the Visitors Center. “These are the kids who will be managing this and dealing with the consequences, and I think it’s incredibly unique that we’re engaging them and getting them thinking and coming up with new ideas. Thinking about it now is a great way to get the ball rolling,” Harral says. It’s also a good way to get people, young and old, to appreciate a significant member of the community that is often overlooked. “Shasta Dam is the second largest dam in our country, it’s a true icon and it’s pivotal in the success of agriculture and economy in California and our country. I truly believe it needs to be showcased,” Harral says. As part of the celebration, nighttime tours will be offered Tuesday and Wednesday. “This is a completely different animal at night,” Harral says. On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Turtle Bay Exploration Park will host tours of the Monolith, site of the massive rock crusher and the start of the 9.6-mile-long conveyor belt that carried aggregate to the dam. On Friday, members of the Kutras family will discuss their historic connection to the Monolith. Bureau employees, students and visitors are all invited to the top of the dam on Friday night to join in a formation to create the numerals 75. A California Highway Patrol plane equipped with an aerial camera will document the feat.

In an age with seemingly endless options for media and information, Jennifer Scarborough feels fortunate that small-market TV news retains a strong niche. The wellrecognized anchor and news director for KRCR News Channel 7 in Redding even keeps a copy of the First Amendment to the Constitution on her wall. It’s not there out of old-fashioned idealism. “There’s a reason it’s the first (amendment),” she says. “I really believe in its function, especially in regards to local journalism. We’re able to shine a light on things people might not have known about otherwise. When you have good information from all sides, you can make good, informed decisions.” In an area where many aspiring journalists often do touch-and-go landings on the way to bigger markets, Scarborough has become a mainstay. The Santa Fe, N.M. native considered leaving far Northern California a few times, but ultimately decided that raising a family in a community she’s deeply fond of wasn’t such a bad idea. “I love what I do and I love living in the North State,” she says. “People in this area are so genuine and so nice, and the area really matters to me. As an anchor, people feel like they know you very well, and they do. I feel very privileged that they let me into their living rooms every night.” After graduating from Santa Fe High School (a school she attended with KRCR meteorologist Mike Krueger), Scarborough went to the University of San Diego and later interned at San Diego’s KNSD Channel 7. Though she had written for both her high school and college newspapers, it only took a quick glimpse of the KNSD staff in action to set her career path. “The first day, I knew it was what I wanted to do,” Scarborough says. “I came home and told my roommate, ‘I know what I’m going to do.’”4 continued on page 22

Her first job in the business was as an anchor and reporter for Scarborough figures she’s changed at least one diaper every day for KDCI News in Carlsbad, N.M.

Big ideas are not confined to big cities, nor are they the sole domain of venerated philosophers, famous scientists, gifted artists or celebrities. Inspirational dreams and revolutionary thoughts pop up everywhere; in cities big and small, in the countryside, atop mountains, in the middle of the sea and in the desert. The trick is collecting those ideas and sharing them with anybody interested in listening. That’s where TED comes in. For the past 29 years, the popular nonprofit organization dedicated to “ideas worth spreading” has hosted conferences featuring top-flight thinkers, artists and visionaries who talk—for a maximum of 18 minutes each—on topics that touch on science, business, the arts and global issues. The talks, now numbering more than 1,500, are available online. TED, which is an acronym for technology, entertainment and design, instituted the TEDx program to provide communities a template to create TED-style events at the local level to facilitate dialogue and the exchange of ideas. Talks at these independently organized events also are distributed online. That’s where Catalyst Redding Young Professionals comes in. Last year, Catalyst members Aaron and Rachel Hatch, both longtime TED fans, organized a TEDx event at Old City Hall with the theme of “Fill in the Blank.” They wanted an idea-sharing event that spoke to the future. “The

notion is that those ideas worth spreading are useful frameworks for making the world a better place,” Rachel Hatch says. “The global nature of the conversation is important, too. These conversations about ideas worth spreading are being carried on all over the world. It’s a shift in education, with more access to free quality concepts.” The inaugural TEDx Redding event packed Old City Hall and nearly filled the Shasta College Health Sciences building where the talks were simulcast on closed-circuit television. One of the ideas discussed at the event—an explanation of Detroit SOUP, a monthly community dinner that funds micro grants for creative projects— prompted Justin Babb to start Redding Soup, featured in the February issue of Enjoy. The Hatches hope those same kind of inspirational sparks will fly when they join with other Catalyst members in hosting the second TEDx Redding event Sept. 7 at the Cascade Theatre. This year’s theme is “Mapping Connections.” As Rachel Hatch explains: “We’ll be mapping connections between people who may be working on similar things, but they’re in their own little silos.” Jack Burgess, a Redding artist who served as a graphic facilitator at last year’s event, agrees. “Redding seems to me to be full of really amazing people, that for one reason or another, aren’t connected and collaborating. TEDx Redding can intentionally get a broad cross-section of Redding in the room and listening to each other.” 4 continued on page 26 September 2013 ENJOY | 25

Redding architect James Theimer, who presented at the first TEDx Redding event, says the format encourages speakers to distill and refine their ideas. “It’s not just ‘let’s make Redding a better place,’ but here’s a person with an idea. The community gets to see what resources they have in their own community, what kind of ideas there are.” Rather than a gathering of professional speakers, Theimer says TEDx is an opportunity to gather disparate parts of the community in the same room to be exposed to some of the brightest minds. “It completely debunks the concept that we’re a small town. People think big thoughts in small towns, but how do you get those out there? You don’t, except for something like this.” Jenny Abbe Moyer, whose experience with TED dates back to 1990 when she co-produced the second-ever TED conference, participated in the first TEDx Redding event and says the gathering generated a positive response. “It felt as though people knew they were experiencing something special, something with the potential to help put us on the map,” says Moyer, whose aunt, Patience Abbe, was one of last year’s speakers. “Redding, and this region of the North State, has so much physical beauty, yet we tend to downplay our intellectual assets and let stereotypes define us. As a result, we reinforce our collective inferiority complex as a city. TEDx Redding will continue to showcase futurists and forward-looking thinkers to chip away at those false impressions, and help redefine our place in this rapidly changing world.” Change is afoot, agrees Burgess, and events like TEDx are a great way to make it happen. “It seems as if in a lot of ways Redding is right on the edge of some really positive change, and lots of people seem to have the collective intent to make this a really great place, and I think TED is part of that collective intent. “I have conversation after conversation with different people or groups of people who are trying to make positive change here. The more of those people we can connect, the more likely something good is going to happen.” • TEDx Redding: Mapping Connections will take place from 2 to 5 p.m. Sept.7 at the Cascade Theatre.

the to play at s g g ca S Boz h eatre casca d e t Boz Scaggs’ explorations into blues, R&B, rock and jazz has produced a career that brought with it acclaim, a loyal following and an enduring respect among his fellow musicians. He has always held high an appreciation of music history, especially the old blues and R&B tunes, he heard over the airwaves from faraway radio stations while growing up in Texas. “We had radio coming out of New Orleans and as far away as Nashville and Chicago,” Scaggs says. “I listened to a lot of hardcore R&B late at night. And there was an extraordinary station out of Dallas that was practically like a master class in roots music, specializing in Delta blues. In school we’d get together in a vacant classroom at lunch and listen to 45s,” he adds. “That’s

where I heard people like Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Elvis and the doo-wop groups.” Many of those past influences were on Scaggs’ mind during the recording of his recently released “Memphis,” his first studio record in five years. On this new CD, he has recorded R&B classics like “Corinna, Corinna,” “Rainy Night in Georgia,” “Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl” and “Love on a Two Way Street,” along with a pair of originals. Produced by Steve Jordan, a drummer who has worked with the likes of Keith Richard, John Mayer and Eric Clapton, the album was recorded at Willie Mitchell’s Royal Studio in Memphis, where the late Mitchell recorded Al Green, Chuck Berry and Ike and Tina Turner.4 continued on page 30

You’ve Done to Me” from the 1980 soundtrack to the film, “Urban Cowboy.” He’s still touring at an 80-show-per-year pace. The name of the game, he says, is the same as it was years ago, when he got into the business. “Butts in the seats. I’ve done a lot of different music, and I’ve cultivated my fan base. I’m of that generation where people want to hear the songs that I did back then, and I get to work some of the newer stuff in and capture people’s imaginations.” • Boz Scaggs at the Cascade Theatre September 18 • Phil Reser has written stories on major American rock and music acts for newspapers, magazines and radio stations since receiving his journalism degree from San Francisco State University. His media contributions include the New York Times, San Francisco Examiner, Chico Enterprise-Record, KCHO & KFPR Public Radio, Blues Revue, and Rolling Stone magazines.

With a band that included Jordan, guitarist Ray Parker Jr. and bassist Willie Weeks, along with guests like Spooner Oldham, Charlie Musselwhite, Rick Vito, and Keb’ Mo, Scaggs says everything felt right. “I just wanted to sing the songs, to be the vocalist primarily,” he says. “After all these years, after all the projects, there is nothing more satisfying than finding all the elements that go into a good song and putting them together and having them work out in a balanced way. When your love of the music and your voice can match up, it’s like you’re flying. It’s the closest thing to transcendence, a glimpse of something perfect.” The genesis for the Memphis project came out of his work with Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen and The Doobie Brothers’ Michael McDonald. Together, they have recently been touring as The Dukes of September, performing their own songs and R&B classics. Scaggs’ musical journey has switched gears throughout his personal history, beginning when he began traveling around Europe and Scandinavia in the mid-’60s, and discovered that people there often appreciated American music more than Americans. “My guitar playing and singing was my passport to travel. I spent about three years traveling around the world. That, and washing dishes, and pushing a wheelbarrow around would get me from place to place. I loved the music; I’d been playing in high school, so I’d played in clubs in Stockholm, Paris and London. I was more interested in exploring things. It was only later on, after I had a couple of records under my belt, that I realized I was a professional musician.” Summoned to San Francisco by his friend Steve Miller to join his band on a couple of albums, Scaggs set out on his own with 1969’s “Boz Scaggs.” It set the template for subsequent albums like “Moments,” “My Time” and “Slow Dancer.” But Scaggs’ career shot to the top of the charts with the 1976 release of the multiplatinum “Silk Degrees.” The right album at the right time, it was a mixture of a smoother-sounding R&B which produced hits like “Lowdown,” “Lido Shuffle,” “What Can I Say” and “We’re All Alone” (which was also a hit for Rita Coolidge). In addition to the new songs from his “Memphis” album, Scaggs has a repertoire of hits that he plays during his shows, including “Breakdown Dead Ahead” and “Jojo” from the album “Middle Man,” as well as “Look What

C A S A s u per h ero R u n Most of the time they run around like Clark Kent, concealing the Superman within. But many of the North State’s true superheroes will soon take off the glasses and business suits, flying their capes proudly for a worthy cause. The inaugural 2013 CASA Superhero Run is slated for Sept. 21 at Bidwell Park in Chico and Nov. 2 at the Sundial Bridge in Redding. Runners and walkers will raise awareness for Court Appointed Special

Advocates (CASA), a national program administered locally under the umbrella of Northern Valley Catholic Social Service to provide court advocacy for abused and neglected children. “At any given time in Shasta County, there are more than 500 children removed from their homes because of abuse and neglect,” says Jake Mangas, development director for Northern Valley Catholic Social Service. “The goal of the CASA program is to give those children4 September 2013 ENJOY | 33

a voice and to see that each child assigned a volunteer advocate is placed in a safe, permanent home.” CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to advocate for abused and neglected children. Volunteers get to know the child and meet with the child’s family members, teachers, social workers, medical professionals—everyone who’s important in his or her life, Mangas says. By establishing a trusting relationship, the advocate becomes a strong voice for the child in the courtroom. Volunteer advocates are asked to commit to a child until the case is closed, which lasts an average of 18 months, with an estimated time commitment of 10 hours per month. A background check, interview and training course is required, and CASA volunteers are sworn in as officers of the court. Cases involving a CASA volunteer are more likely to be permanently and successfully closed than cases where a CASA volunteer is not involved, Mangas says. Nationwide, more than 2 million children have been helped by CASA. Many of these youth have overcome what once seemed insurmountable obstacles to go to college, establish careers and start their own healthy families. The Superhero Run is a “borrowed” idea that has been successful in cities all over the country, and it centers on the theme that “every child needs a hero, but abused children need superheroes,” Mangas says. “I think we are drawn to superheroes because they are often ordinary people who do extraordinary things and they inspire us,” Mangas says. Participating children under age 10 will receive a cape, and they’ll be charged with chasing down a nasty villain. Awards will be presented for the best costumes. Need inspiration?

Superhero Run’s Facebook page for ideas, including pictures of local celebrities flying incognito as Wonder Woman, Superman and more. “Certainly, anyone is a superhero who makes a difference in the life of an abused or neglected child,” Mangas says. “This event helps to recognize the superhero within.” The events are sponsored by Cornerstone Community Bank, Teamwork HR & O2 Staffing, West Coast Innovations, Dutch Bros., Fleet Feet and the Active 20-30 Club-Chico. • Chico CASA Superhero Run• Sept. 21, Lower Bidwell Park Race day registration: 7 to 8:30 am Little Heroes Dash (ages 10 and younger): 8:30 am 5K: 9 am Redding CASA Superhero Run • Nov. 2, Sundial Bridge Race day registration: 7 to 8:30 am Little Heroes Dash (ages 10 and younger): 8:30 am 5K: 9 am

fa s h i o n m a k e s a n e a sy t r a n s i t i o n f r o m s u mm e r h e at to fa b u lo u s fa l l

The end of summer is typically a mixed bag of emotions.The thought of trading long, lazy summer days for a backpack or a business suit isn’t easy. But with the end of one season comes exciting opportunities presented by another, particularly in the realm of fashion. No other season tends to inspire our inner fashionista or dapper dude more than fall. Whether you’re a student on your way back to school, or a parent anxious to get back to business after the kids are back in the swing of things, we’ll show you how to hold on to a touch of summer while you swing into fall. Who says that you have to give up your summer brights as soon as the school bell rings? Transition your favorite corals, sea foam greens, lemon yellows, electric blues and tangerines from summer into the perfect fall ensemble by incorporating some basic black, charcoal gray, navy or chocolate. You’ll look fresh without having to re-invent the wheel, and since vivid color is all the rage in both men’s and women’s fashion, everyone can get in on the fun! If you would rather dive headlong into fall, autumnal shades of olive, forest green, taupe, cinnamon and marigold look just as good in fashion as they do in nature. You can’t go wrong with rich jewel tones, ever the traditional mark of the fall season. A blazer instantly adds a ready-for-the-world perspective to your look. It’s a great investment to extend your wardrobe from summer to fall and it’s a classic piece that will serve you for years to come. Neutral colors are the most versatile, but colored blazers are fun and stylish. Guys, blazers work with everything from jeans and t-shirts to slacks, and, if you are bold, even shorts. Blazers take on a sophisticated look when paired with dress shoes, but can be lots of fun when mixed with a playful sneaker in a vibrant hue. Ladies, pair a blazer with your sassiest shorts, skinny jeans or leggings, or upgrade your summer sundress to a fall head-turner with the addition of a blazer and a pair of classic pumps or platforms. Give it a whirl.4 continued on page 38 September 2013 ENJOY | 37

With the 1990s being the current vintage influence of choice, the denim jacket is the quintessential “it” item to wear with virtually everything. As a playful alternative to a blazer, try a hot-all-over-again denim jacket. Lucky ladies and gents who follow the old adage “fashion makes a comeback every 20 years” are especially grateful for having kept their old denim jacket from back in the day. With the 1990s being the current vintage influence of choice, the denim jacket is the quintessential “it” item to wear with virtually everything. Guys, work the denim jacket with your favorite pair of jeans or khakis. Ladies, denim jackets are perfect for mixing with your maxi dresses and skirts, or sweet and sassy highlow dresses. Feeling a bit rebellious? Add edginess to your wardrobe by scoring a leather moto jacket and letting your inner Harley Davidson come out to play. The moto jacket is hot for both guys and girls and spans the age demographic. If leather isn’t your thing, you can always find a motorcycle inspired jacket in a plethora of other materials. Scarves are always in style, and with the many textures and styles available, they add the perfect amount of fun and warmth to shield against the crisp fall weather. Plaid, hound’s tooth, stripes or camouflage help guys infuse signature style into an ensemble. For the ladies, chunky infinity scarves in cozy knits are a bold fashion move worth making. Speaking of cozy knits, pick them up in the form of a sweater, too. American Pastoral is at the forefront of fall 2013 style. Ladies, pair your thickest, slouchiest sweater with a pair leggings or skinny jeans and oxford lace ups. Guys, sport your cable knit zip-front sweater with a pair of tweed or plaid pants and loafers. Classic never looked so fierce.

If you’d prefer a less bulky alternative to the sweater, try a button-up collared shirt. Ladies, show your style prowess by buttoning it up all the way and wearing a chunky, bold necklace right over those buttons. This look pairs well with cropped skinny jeans or a pencil skirt. Gents, flex your style muscles by wearing a striped or plaid button front shirt or one in a bold color with your jeans or khakis. Bonus points if you choose to mix in a contrasting pattern or color elsewhere in your ensemble. Ladies. Will. Swoon. Trust us. Opaque tights or leggings extend the life of any pair of shorts or summer dress with ease and can be worn with everything from the ever-sexy high heel to the sweet ballet flat to the edgy-yet- comfortable ankle bootie. And because these elements are functional for all ages, mom and daughter might just be able to enjoy these together. Consider it a double-whammy. Looking for a hot bag to accessorize your cool back-to-school or back-tobusiness look? Opt for a backpack, messenger bag, or oversized tote bag. Leather, neon, see-though, plaid, basic, distressed or fringed – it all works, as long as you love it. Let your bag express who you are. Even if it doesn’t match with your outfit, let it be your wild card – something that sets you apart from the rest. Whatever style you embrace this fall, be sure to wear what you love. Confidence is the coolest ensemble, after all. •

rancheria The Maidus were hunters, gatherers and exemplary basket weavers, weaving highly detailed and useful baskets ranging in many sizes and types, such as: watertight baskets for cooking, large storage baskets, cradles and hats. The most characteristic Maidu basket is coiled. To make these baskets they used dozens of different kinds of wild plant stems, barks, roots and leaves. Some of the more common were: fern roots, red bark of the redbud, white willow twigs and tule roots, hazel twigs, yucca leaves, brown marsh grass roots and sedge roots. By combining these different kinds of plants they were able to make geometric designs on their baskets in red, black, white, brown or tan. Patterns are simple, and show more feeling for the appearance of the basket as a whole than for intricacy of detail.

Fam i ly comes f i rst for C la i re Tona Move over, Bob Marley. Claire Tona long ago decided, “Don’t worry, be happy.” She raised her 10 children with a belief that everything will work out. A woman of faith, she is still on her knees every night before bed, praying for her family which includes her children and their spouses, 30 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren. Most remarkably, when her husband died suddenly after 19 years of marriage, Tona raised the family alone. The youngest child was 5 at the time and the oldest 18. They learned to take care of each other, and still do. Though one of her sons, Joe Tona, bought the property some years ago, Tona still lives in the modest home in Happy Valley that continually resounds with happy voices when family members drop in to help with yard work or repairs and maintenance on the six acres where 37 years of memories have been made. At 81, she labors in the middle of it all.

She tends the vegetable garden, mows lawns with her riding mower, prunes and picks fruit from the orchard. At the end of each growing season she pulls out the canning jars and preserves what isn’t eaten fresh. Hand-dug cellar walls display shelves of jars packed with pickles, jams, corn, green beans, peaches and more that Tona has put up for the family pantry. She makes her own garlic powder and hot pepper powder and cures her own olives, all to share with family and friends. Holidays, birthdays and any old occasion to get together tend to be progressive affairs. Food, games, movies, sports and horseplay usually start at Grandma’s house. Two or three days later, the food seems to have multiplied as the party hopscotches to other family homes. Daughter Anita Drake explains, “We were each others’ best friends growing up, and we still are.”4 continued on page 42

September 2013 ENJOY | 41

Claire Tona doesn’t sit still for long. She loves to try new things. Through the years she has become a proficient basket weaver incorporating a variety of natural materials, primarily pine needles, along with raffia and waxed thread. She is an oil painter who wants to take more classes. She raises and dries gourds for a variety of craft projects. Tona participates actively in Sacred Heart Catholic Church activities and has been busy through the years supporting community events. When her husband died, Tona worked 14-hour days seven days a week to maintain the three businesses he had built. When she realized she couldn’t continue the pace, the family loaded into a van and moved from Lancaster to Happy Valley. Some of the older children stayed behind, but the rest crowded cozily into a single-wide mobile home. The sale of the businesses and a small inheritance allowed Tona to stay home with her children for the first five years while they built onto the house. They worked together planting the garden and added some animals to their small family farm. One season, they expanded the pond where the kids played out their Huck Finn fantasies. Another summer, the two youngest boys learned the value of hard work along with three cousins: Tona marked off a few feet in the hillside each day for the boys, who dug a cavern big enough for a usable cellar. By week’s end they had earned a trip to the fair. Tona loved to have fun with her family. She didn’t think twice about loading everyone into the van and

taking off to visit cousins in Arizona or Colorado. A patchwork montage of black-and-white family photos displays the image of Tona as a young mom holding one of her infants; it’s a gift that the family presented to her on her 70th birthday. She loves the babies of the family, commenting that she “enjoyed the children while they were home. They were a gift from God.” Daughter Frances Zuckswert says, “She’s always got our back. She is always thinking of others. She taught us how to give without thinking about what we get out of it.” Drake adds, “When I’m thinking about doing something that I’m not sure I can do, I am inspired by my mom’s example.” Claire Tona has never looked at limitations, only possibilities, and still influences three generations of her descendents to do the same. • Sandie Tillery writes about the North State from 35 years of personal experience exploring it from corner to corner with husband John, their three grown children and four grandsons. She loves interviewing the amazing people who live here and telling their stories.

Box of Chocolates p u mp k i nlan d c h ocolate co . i n T e h ama co u nty A smiling pumpkin greets travelers year round on Highway 99 East in Tehama County’s Dairyville community. Some remember Pumpkinland as the popular you-pick pumpkin farm that brought families out in droves during the fall to scour the perfect squash for front porch jack-o-lanterns. A Wizard of Oz theme permeated the grounds and a circus tent offered up family entertainment. Today, the pumpkin welcomes people off the highway for delectable chocolates handmade on premises by the second generation of Pumpkinland’s proprietor, Sean Brown. “By trade I’m a molecular biologist,” says Sean. He grew up at Pumpkinland, which his parents opened in 1972 as an opportunity for their kids to earn pocket change raising vegetables. The business grew to become a local attraction, with hay rides and mazes and school groups coming out to pick pumpkins. Sean graduated Mercy High School in Red Bluff and went off to college at Chico State University, where he earned two science degrees. He then moved off to work at the University of Washington Medical School and then to San Diego to work for Johnson and Johnson. Eventually, all four of Wayne and Jean Brown’s children grew up and moved away. They sold off the parcel of land where the pumpkins were grown and took down the circus tent and wooden Wizard of Oz cutouts.

Family responsibilities brought Sean back to the North State, and he found himself carrying on his father’s tradition of making candy for sale on the property. The alchemy of chocolate making is certainly aided by his professional training, and the transition from scientist to chocolatier hasn’t been too much of a stretch. “It came full circle, but it feels right,” says Sean of the series of events that brought him back from the big cities to Dairyville. “My father trained me, by and large, and the rest I learned on my own by trial and error,” he says. Of his training as a scientist and the attention to detail it required, he says, “I learned good habits I was able to bring to bear here. And I’m still learning, certainly.” Sean relies on recipes “straight out of the old cookbooks” and notes that there isn’t a large tradition of candy making on the west coast. Most of his supplies are shipped from the east coast, and many pieces of equipment have been custom made by his brother to accommodate the work and its temperature and storage demands. What he does source locally, however, is an abundance of fresh, local nuts. Two of his most popular creations are chocolate turtles made with almonds, walnuts or pecans from neighboring orchards. He is known for his snow almonds surrounded by creamy dark and white chocolates and powdered sugar, and he has a line of brittles made with local nuts as well.4 continued on page 46

“My main concern as a candy maker is to keep things as fresh as possible,” says Sean. During peak seasons—the spring and winter holidays—he finds himself working through the night to create candies that will be sold the next day. In the off season, he continues to make candy but also finds himself farming and devising other ways to bring customers in. Pumpkinland continues to offer seasonal vegetables, and he will preserve what he can to extend the buying season. His pomegranate jam is popular, as is the short season for you-pick asparagus. Sean enjoys the opportunity to go back and forth between farming and candy making. “It’s difficult to get into a rut one way or another,” he says. It’s also a fun challenge to conjure multiple ways to utilize the land and it’s products. There are big plans for expansion at Pumpkinland, but they will come along as Sean is able to get to them. Although he still receives some help from his siblings, he says he is loath to have to hire too much outside help. “I try to do as much as I can by myself to keep my overhead

low,” he says. Although it wasn’t in his plans as a young man to return home and become a candy maker, he finds being self employed suits him quite well. “It’s a different kind of stress, but it’s a stress I can manage easily,” he says. He also appreciates that as opposed to the years scientific research can take to see results, “with food, there’s an immediate response.” There’s that and the fact that, “It’s candy. It’s favorably received by all ages.” • Pumpkinland Chocolate Co. 12000 Highway 99 East, Red Bluff, CA (Dairyville) (530) 527-3026

W i ll i ams ’ T h erapy S erves t h e C omm u n i ty On a Friday afternoon, the mood is light as patients chat with their therapists and one another in the physical therapy room at Marquis Care Shasta. Some are mobile, some are not, but hope is in the air. The post acute care rehabilitation facility is home to Williams’ Therapy, whose patriarch Hal Williams has a long and distinguished presence in the Redding community. Best known as the founder of Redding Physical Therapy, Fit for Work and Redding Fitness Center, Williams ran the trio of businesses for almost 30 years before selling them to Mercy Hospital 15 years ago. In the late 1960s, when Williams noticed new construction across from Enterprise High School, he contacted the Seattle-based owner, who welcomed his services at the new Shasta Convalescent Hospital. “When I sold Redding Physical Therapy and the other businesses to Mercy, I held onto the convalescent hospital contract,” says Williams. A visionary move, it has allowed him to create a home base at the newly owned and renamed facility where he began his career. He and his staff offer physical therapy services to seniors making a three- to four-week transitional stay between hospital and home. In spite of an abundance of physical therapy services in town, Williams runs a thriving practice. In fact, he has employed many of the Redding area physical therapists and PT assistants at some point in their careers. Many are friends who found new opportunity as a result of their association with the PT don. “Steve Westlake took over the sports therapy end of my business,” says Williams, who started a program to meet the needs of high school athletes at sporting events. “They had a need and I volunteered to meet that need,” adds Williams, who put Westlake in charge of contacting schools to see if they wanted a physical therapist on field at events. “Many of those kids didn’t have insurance, so we had them come over to Redding Physical Therapy and treated them for free.” Notwithstanding his success, Williams has faced some dark moments. His son Van had a car accident at 20 that left him paralyzed. “That was the most difficult time of my life,” remembers Williams. A proud Williams says his son Van was the first paralyzed student to attend physical therapy school in the United States. Today he is a therapist and partner at Shasta Physical Therapy and Shasta Physical Therapy West. Mike Odell, PT assistant and director of rehabilitation at Williams’ Therapy, was paralyzed from the neck down in a vehicle accident at 19 and was told he would never walk again. Williams had treated him previously after a knee surgery and made arrangements to send Odell to Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and then supervised his physical therapy upon his return to Redding.4 continued on page 50

September 2013 ENJOY | 49

He had been in therapy for awhile, working on regaining strength, when Williams says, “We dumped him out of his chair and said ‘Get back in the chair by yourself.’” Odell rebelled but Williams held firm. “We said, ‘You either get up off the floor or you’re going to spend the night there.’” After a thoughtful pause, Williams adds, “That’s not the way you’re supposed to treat your patients, by the way, but he did get up and get back in his chair by himself.” Odell recognized the caring behind the tough love and today not only walks but assists others in their own recovery. “I look back on it now,” he says. “At 19, that’s what I needed. ‘Either get better, or go home.’” Williams enjoys the patient care aspect and says he is not ready to retire, adding, “I tell my employees, I’ve never really worked a day in my life.” •

“You’re Only As Young As You Feel”

Toni Melton, Disappearing Act Patient

I am often in the public eye, working for Waterworks Park and with my husband/owner of Nor Cal Satellite. So after years of sun exposure, my complexion developed an undesirable texture. As a mother of 6 and grandmother of 17, I embrace my smile lines and “Time” lines; I’ve earned them. However, I was determined to improve the texture and fine lines of my face. I made a very wise decision choosing DISAPPEARING ACT Cosmetic Laser Center and the Fraxel:Restore treatment. The staff is compassionate and knowledgeable, and I feel very comfortable and confident with their skills and talent. I had my first Fraxel treatment in October 2012. The procedure was simple, the recovery easy, and the results remarkable. Building on my results, I had a second treatment in March 2013 and will have my third treatment this fall. I use the OBAGI Condition & Enhance prescription skin care system to maintain and further enhance my results. My daughter also uses the OBAGI system to help prevent the Toni’s Before and After Photos damage she is exposed to daily. They say, “You’re only as young as you feel”, and I feel younger when I look in the mirror thanks to the services at DISAPPEARING ACT. Toni before

There are many stories behind the rousing success of Orland’s Farwood Bar and Grill, but when it comes right down to it, owner LeighAnn Byerly says, “Our story is we shouldn’t have made it.” Seated at a four-top on a busy Tuesday night, LeighAnn recounts the journey that has taken her from being a Southern California transplant happily homeschooling her three children to being interviewed for a magazine as waitstaff hustle to attend to customers that are streaming in to fill surrounding tables.4 continued on page 56 September 2013 ENJOY | 55

It started with a small catering business that LeighAnn ran from her house. With her husband Jim off teaching in a special education program, she enjoyed taking on small jobs through word of mouth that stoked her creative fires and brought in extra money. When the Glenn County Chamber of Commerce put out a call for bids for a 200-person dinner, she offered the idea of a farmers’ market theme, using the bounty of the region’s agricultural producers. The successful bid sent her into a frenzy, getting to know area farmers and ranchers from a list provided by the UC Davis agriculture extension office. While the project proved to be bigger than she anticipated, it also gave her appreciation for the community in which she’d recently settled. “I came up north and thought, ‘There is all this bounty right here,’” she says. The successful event brought her skills to the attention of Farwood’s original owners, Bob and Jan Walker, who asked her to consult in April 2008. The business was struggling. Quickly, she found herself managing the front of the house. She’d never managed a restaurant and

never worked in a professional kitchen. “I was in way over my head,” she admits. And yet, there was something about the Farwood that was taking hold in her as well as the community. It was becoming the gathering place they’d dreamed of. Through ups and downs, people were finding comfort, whether at the gloriously restored wooden bar crafted in the 1800s in England and delivered via a San Francisco bar in 1916 to Orland, or at a table in the dining area featuring a large collection of original art. By November 2008, she and Jim went out on a limb to purchase the restaurant. LeighAnn emphasizes, however, that the resurrection of the business was at the hands of many, including a dedicated staff. “Everyone was invested in saving the restaurant,” she says. “It wasn’t just one. It was the whole team fighting to keep it alive.” She recalls shopping for supplies and receiving a call from the bookkeeper that a 24-hour cut off notice had been received from PG&E. The supplies would have to go on her personal credit card4 continued on page 58

to allow the business to keep the lights on. Persevere they did. LeighAnn and her staff have decided to be “all things to all people” and create an environment — ­ and dishes — that appeal to everyone. There isn’t a particular look to the customers that frequent Farwood, and that’s by design. The population of Glenn County is just over 28,000 and Orland isn’t even the county seat. The business can’t be sustained by one demographic. There are the local farmers and ranchers who “work hard all day and show up in work clothes and just want a steak,” says LeighAnn. They may well be seated next to the vegans from the animal sanctuary down the way. There are families who enjoy a safe place to bring kids and seniors who receive a discount at lunch. Then there are the foodies, who come from near and far. “They’re coming because they care about the farm-tofork movement and they care about presentation.” LeighAnn’s experience with the farmers’ market dinner for the Chamber of Commerce has expanded into the overarching theme of Farwood: fine, fresh, local food. Each year, the restaurant hosts a monthly tasting series that has become a favorite event for regional foodies. More than an opportunity to taste food and drink from area producers, it’s a chance to get to know the people behind the businesses. It’s storytelling. “It’s a matchmaking event because hopefully our customers are falling in love with their products,” says LeighAnn. “We talk and taste all together. It’s very communal. You get immersed in these particular vendors.” As she talks of the events, LeighAnn’s warm face broadens into a smile and you can tell she relishes “creating a platform for them to tell their story.” The story of Farwood continues, with all the ups and downs of the restaurant business in a struggling economy. But things are looking up and customers are walking through the door from further away, based on word-ofmouth recommendations. For LeighAnn, the experience is pulled together by a single thread. “It’s redemption,” she says. “It’s taking something that is in the ashes, that’s absolutely hopeless and breathing new life into it. That concept means absolutely everything to me.” • Farwood Bar and Grill • 705 5th Street, Orland (530) 865-9900 •

M t. s h asta ' s S I S S O N M E A D O W S Mount Shasta hides behind a purple thistle which gazes over the sea of grass and islands of cattails. The boardwalk hovers as if magic over the dampness of the earth, weaving a path through the peaceful acres. This piece of land is a living picture of the once uninhabited valley on which J.H. Sisson began a community, known today as Mount Shasta City. The valley floor is now crisscrossed with streets, with homes and businesses planted along the borders. In the city center, a ranch was built as the city grew around the 7½-acre expanse. As modernity changed the landscape, the field remained frozen close to the time4 continued on page 62 September 2013 ENJOY | 61

before people lived here. The fertile wetland sometimes supported hay and lazy cows. In January 2003, the Siskiyou Land Trust purchased this property, known as Sisson Meadow. The ranch long unattended, the trust helped the meadow reclaim its heritage. The old, decaying barn was removed. Natural drainage was restored as a boardwalk was built to allow the beauty here to be admired but remain unharmed. Members of the trust hold volunteer events to maintain the integrity of the field. The boardwalk is repaired, benches are cleaned and conservation efforts allow the area to maintain its natural grandeur. Teachers from the nearby school display the meadow to their students, introducing them to science while giving them the values needed to be good stewards of their world. Sisson Meadow may be accessed from the Mount Shasta Library and Sisson School, as well as an entrance on Castle Street. A pond near the school is the seasonal home to ducks and geese that choose the waterway as a nursery for their babies. Throughout the day people walk in quiet wonder, disappearing for a short distance from the life of their town, to hide in its center and enjoy the quiet slowness as the field dreams. Along the south side of the meadow, a small creek marks the property line, meandering to the west over a small waterfall before disappearing underground. The foliage towering over the water makes an enchanted gateway to the field, drawing the visitor from the surface street to a hidden past, shading a rough stairway of slated rock. The Castle Street entrance hosts picnic benches for those looking to enjoy a meal and time here. The efforts of the Siskiyou Land Trust extend beyond this place. The non-profit organization is working toward protecting open space throughout Siskiyou County, drawing upon the resources of wetlands, viewsheds, forests and wildlife habitat. It works with those overseeing the lands to protect both their interests and those of future generations. Many other projects consume the trust's efforts. A greenway trail from Mount Shasta City Park to the downtown is in development. In the Shasta Valley and Scott Valley, efforts are in the making to keep farmland and ranches in agricultural production. The Garden Share project next to their offices on Alma Street provides a common place to grow food. The trust is proposing a trail from Snowman's Hill on Highway 89 toward McCloud, which would give access to the Mott Airport near Dunsmuir. Small children watch the ducks and return daily to see their babies grow. In the future, these children will return to see new generations of birds with new babies, holding the hands of their own children. And there another purple thistle will be growing, standing tall for each generation to see. •

50 DedIcateD YEARS


“He said, ‘How are you today, Mr. President?’ and President Kennedy, in his Boston accent, said, ‘I’m doing fine – it’s a beautiful day.’“ ~Jim Milestone

It’s been a half-century since former Redding Mayor Robert Anderson watched President John Fitzgerald Kennedy address 10,000 people at Whiskeytown Lake, but he distinctly recalls the overwhelming feeling that he experienced that day. “When his helicopter landed on the dam, it was the same emotion as when you hear ‘The Star Spangled Banner’—you get that lump in your heart,” says Anderson, who served as master of ceremonies when JFK dedicated the dam on Sept. 28, 1963. It was a much-anticipated victory for Anderson and the rest of the dedication committee, who were turned down the first time4 continued on page 66 September 2013 ENJOY | 65

they asked if Kennedy would make the trip. “They reconsidered, and we were the only stop he made on his western tour,” he says. An advance team came to the North State the week before Kennedy arrived, working from the Chamber of Commerce office to strategize the president’s security. “Secret Service people were on each little hilltop around there,” says Anderson, then the Chamber president. “I asked them if it was dangerous to have the president out in such an open area, and they said no; it was less dangerous than when he was in a big city surrounded by high-rise buildings” – an eerie premonition of the fate that befell the president just eight weeks later in Dallas. Retired Shasta College President Gary Lewis was a 13-year-old Boy Scout on that day. Highway 299 was closed for security, so thousands of attendees were shuttled to the dam from Shasta High School. “The Boy Scouts were all lined up around the processional for President Kennedy,” Lewis says. While sailboats bobbed on the lake’s crystal blue waters, Kennedy spoke of the dam’s ability to irrigate farms, generate power and increase recreation. “For too long, this water ran unused to the sea,” Kennedy told the crowd. “For too long, surplus water in one area was wasted, while there was a deficit nearby. Now, by diverting these waters to the eastern slope, we can irrigate crops on the fertile plains of the Sacramento Valley and supply water also for municipal and industrial use to the cities to the south. And while running their course, these waters will generate millions of kilowatts of energy and help expand the economy of the fastest growing state in the nation. In these ways, Whiskeytown Reservoir and the Trinity Division will add to our natural beauty and will show that man can improve on nature, and make it possible for this state to continue to grow.” Jeff Engell of Crown Camera has become a scholar of sorts on the event after putting together a 48-minute DVD from footage, pictures and movies from numerous sources, including KRCR-TV’s firstever live remote. “You can watch the live broadcast as it happened,” says Engell, whose grandparents donated the maple rocking chair that the president used for the occasion due to a bad back. The DVD also features interviews with Anderson, Larry Carr (Kennedy’s campaign manager for Northern California), civic leader Lou Gerard, 1962 Miss Shasta County Sherry Fredricks, and Rudy Balma, who emceed the dedication ceremonies a year later at the site. Also interviewed was Terri Hazeleur, “the Hayfork Hiker.” “Her teachers wouldn’t let her out early, but she led a group of girls to hike from Hayfork to Whiskeytown,” says Jim Milestone, superintendent of Whiskeytown National Recreation Area.4 continued on page 68

“Their parents drove up and down the highway all night to help the girls get to the dam. They arrived at about 6:30 am, and Congressman Bizz Johnson bought them hot dogs and Cokes. After the speech, they called for Terri to come to the podium. She got to meet President Kennedy, and she was surprised he wasn’t taller than her father. But she said he had really good cologne on.” The trip to Whiskeytown spotlighted Kennedy’s interest in conservation, Milestone says. “He was touting not just the completion of the Trinity River division, but the idea of feeding the world, providing great fruits and vegetables to America,” Milestone says. “He was talking about the economy, and how the bigger picture of conservation across America and the accumulation of all these projects was going to make America stronger for the future, and really a powerhouse for food production, as well as recreation.” In the ensuing half-century, those who were present at the dedication still identify Whiskeytown as one of the North State’s greatest treasures. “I was a kid when the lake was being filled up, and that was the place to go,” recalls Lewis, president of the Shasta Historical Society, who took his wife to Whiskeytown on their first date in 1975. “There were rope swings all along the lake. We had a Boy Scout troop campground at Oak Bottom. My wife and I have four boys that we’d take out to Brandy Creek. It’s a great local attraction.” Some 800,000 people visit Whiskeytown annually; James Carr’s vision of having trails in the park has come to fruition, and the park’s historical ties to the Wintu tribe and the Gold Rush era have been preserved. “And the story continues on into the future,” Milestone says. A 50th anniversary celebration is slated for Sept. 28, starting with a sunrise ceremony at 6:30 am at the Kennedy Memorial. Then at 10

am at the David Marr Auditorium at 2200 Eureka Way in Redding, a free public event is being organized by the Shasta Historical Society, the National Park Service, Friends of Whiskeytown and the Shasta Union High School District. Panel discussions will focus on Kennedy’s visit and the role of Whiskeytown and the Bureau of Reclamation as they manage water into the future. “We’re starting with a historical perspective, but also talking about where we are now with the water in Northern California and the future of that water,” Lewis says. “It’s important—this is part of our heritage and our history.” Guests are invited to bring photographs and their own stories about the president’s visit. “I just met a man this morning on a kayak tour who remembers Kennedy coming to the fence at the airport – he left the motorcade and walked over and shook everyone’s hand,” Milestone says. “He said, ‘How are you today, Mr. President?’ and President Kennedy, in his Boston accent, said, ‘I’m doing fine – it’s a beautiful day.’ Little stories like that are great vignettes.” • 50th Anniversary Celebration of JFK’s Dedication of Whiskeytown Sept. 28; 6:30 am sunrise ceremony at the Kennedy Memorial; 10 am presentations and panel discussion at David Marr Auditorium, 2200 Eureka Way, Redding;, or call the park information line at (530) 242-3410;

ost people who dream of running a bed-and-breakfast find their bliss in an old Victorian or a majestic mansion. Not Nancy Brown-Warner. She fell in love with a haunted mortuary. With an extensive remodel almost wrapped up, the Old Mortuary Inn in Dunsmuir stands ready to welcome guests, who have been regularly knocking on her door at 5957 Sacramento Ave. to learn more about the place. Though it hasn’t been authenticated, Brown-Warner suspects that the building was designed by Julia Morgan, one of the most significant American architects of the 20th century. Morgan is responsible for such renowned works as Hearst Castle and San Simeon, but she also designed the Wyntoon estate on the McCloud River for William Randolph Hearst. It is still pending verification, but local historians believe that Morgan worked on the Old Mortuary Inn while she developed nearby Wyntoon. Brown-Warner and her husband had always wanted to run a bed and breakfast. “We were looking for a big home, and this was rumored to be a Julia Morgan and it was the right size to be a B&B,” the former San Franciscan says. “It’s on the Sacramento River for fly fishermen, it’s right down the block from Café Maddelena, and it’s perfectly situated for ‘location, location, location.’ We fell in love with the bones.” While some might be turned off by a place that once housed dead people, the opposite is true. “People are drawn to the fact that it was a mortuary,” Brown-Warner says. “It has a 100-year history.” Indeed, the basement remains largely as it was, and tours will soon be hosted there. A mortician from Cottonwood is donating some dunsmuir tools of the trade for effect, and it remains unpainted. “There are still bolts in the wall for the embalming table, and the drain in the concrete floor still flows to the Sacramento River. There are still faucets for washing the bodies,” she says. “There’s a long hallway where the horse-drawn hearse would come through.”4 continued on page 72

Named “History Hall,” the area will showcase information about people who went through the mortuary. “If people have family members who came through here on the way to their final resting place, we’d be honored to hang their picture and family history,” Brown-Warner says. Upstairs, however, is far more hospitable to guests. Four beautiful bed-and-breakfast rooms are available – the Mortician’s Wife, King’s Ransom, Ghostly Knights and Julia Morgan—and guests can enjoy the baby grand piano, pool table and other amenities. Bookings are now being accepted for late-summer guests, and the antique mortuary will be opened for public tours by late September. “It naturally beckons to people who are into the paranormal and supernatural,” Brown-Warner says. “There are active hauntings here. It doesn’t matter if you believe or don’t believe – it just is.” It also appeals to people from other walks of life: Architecture students come to study the building, fly fishermen enjoy the stone’sthrow access to the Sacramento River and train enthusiasts come up to watch the trains, she says. Still others have shown up at the Old Mortuary Inn because it’s the setting for “The Mortician’s Wife,” a novel by Dunsmuir resident Maralee Lowder. “It’s a very unique building, and that’s what first intrigued me,” Lowder says. “When the last mortician died, his wife – instead of leaving – moved from one apartment to another in there until she died. My writer’s mind was going crazy. I’d heard stories of the hauntings, so I made up a really bad ghost who lives in that house.” Its sequel will be available in October on Amazon, and Lowder is writing the third and final installment now.

72 | Enjoy SEPTEMBER 2013

Meanwhile, Brown-Warner is also writing a book about the house – but hers is non-fiction, and details “the true hauntings of the mortuary,” she says. “The people who have stayed here share their experiences and their words.” Most hauntings are audible, like footsteps, screeching and scraping of walls, but they’ve seen Bible pages turn by themselves and a log fire go out immediately for no apparent reason. “My husband had to say, ‘We’re living here and so are you, so we all have to get along,’” she says. “The first screeching haunting was scary, but since then, it’s like the house likes me; it doesn’t pick on me. I’m not afraid of it. I love this old house. All the footsteps in the middle of the night, it’s all like background noise at this part. It’s all part of the character.” And novelist Lowder says she can hardly believe what her friend has done with the mortuary. “My son and I had gone through it, and I thought, if you had a million dollars this would make a really neat place. Nancy didn’t have a million dollars, but you walk through the building and go, ‘Wow!’ She’s an incredible person,” Lowder says. • The Old Mortuary Inn • 5957 Sacramento Ave., Dunsmuir (530) 925-6168

Choose Well

M ISTE R B R O W N SHA R ES HIS M ESSAGE TO E M P O W E R STUDENTS “Choose well,” calls a student from across the grocery store aisle. “Oh, yeah!” resounds the reply of Mister Brown, who recognizes the youngster from one of many schools he visits in the North State. More than a motivational speaker, Mister Brown (Mister is his legal first name) has developed a style of interacting with young people from kindergarten through college that encourages them to consider how their choices will affect their future. “Making life better through the power of choices” is his motto and the heart of every message. His student business cards announce his message clearly. Children eagerly collect cards showing Mister Brown holding a puzzle piece, and a dialogue balloon that proclaims, “You make choices and your choices make you.” His signature phrase “Choose Well” leaps out as an encouraging caption. The back has a specific puzzle piece with Mister Brown’s website address where they can go for further age-specific encouragement. Throughout the year, students like to collect cards that have different puzzle pieces and different life principles as they embrace his message, “Choices are the puzzle pieces of life.” More than 40 schools in the North State and throughout the United States have invited Mister Brown to share his message. His goal is to “empower students, equip parents and support educators to strengthen our communities through the power of choices.” He4 continued on page 76

His ground rules are simple: I will respect you; you will respect me; we will all respect each other; you will respect yourself. incorporates personal life lessons and stories to engage students with humor and interactive lessons. His three-pronged approach allows him to touch the lives of whole student bodies while interacting with some students more personally. He speaks at school assemblies, visits his partner schools for monthly lunch and recess interaction (he is the self-proclaimed champion at tetherball at Prairie Elementary School), and mentors specifically targeted students. Mister Brown wants to help students to have “knowledge to understand their choices, confidence to choose for themselves, and the freedom to choose well.” He talks frankly about such things as bullying, personal responsibility, substance abuse, healthy relationships and character development. He also speaks to parent groups and educators with a goal of giving them better tools for communicating with and guiding the young people in their lives. An inner city kid from Milwaukee, Wisc., Mister Brown came to Redding by way of St. Louis, where he met his wife. When they came to Shasta County in 2009 to be closer to his in-laws, he was inspired to bring a message to children that he had learned the hard way growing up with a strong single mom. His primary male role model, his grandfather, passed away when he was in ninth grade, and he struggled during those early formative years with all the choices young people face today. He found his gift early as a camp counselor and learned life lessons that have led him to “care about others, my world and myself.” He wants to connect rather than lecture. He is all about building relationships. His style includes a call and response routine that every child comes to know well. He says, “Choose well” and the

76 | Enjoy SEPTEMBER 2013

whole group shouts back “Oh, yeah.” His ground rules are simple: I will respect you; you will respect me; we will all respect each other; you will respect yourself. Mister Brown tailors his approach and message for each school and engages with creative props, Powerpoint presentations and memorable catch phrases. His message seems to be catching on. Pacheco Middle School is decorating an outside wall with a mural depicting puzzle pieces and Mister Brown’s message of making good choices. He shares the story of Shane, who two years ago started his middle school experience at Parsons Junior High School on a bad note. This year when Mister Brown went to visit, Shane showed him a Mister Brown business card he’s kept since that first year and reported that he has been making good life choices. From camps to classrooms, Mister Brown is bringing his infectious message to young people, helping them understand the power of their choices. Parent groups and school boards have taken his message to heart and in a climate where parents, schools and communities struggle to bridge the gap between generations, Mister Brown offers hope. •

Siskiyou S O M E T HI N G F O R E V E RY C YC L I S T Bicycling enthusiasts often load up their bikes with the intention of heading out for a particular type of terrain, be it mountain trails, grinders, long and easy roads or steep challenges. Hopefully, there will also be a wealth of natural beauty to enjoy. What if there is an area where all of the above could be found within a short drive? There is such a place, and it’s called Siskiyou County. From steep rides that lead to pristine Castle Lake or Mount Shasta to the long, easy farmland roads of northern Siskiyou that also have their share of steep roads and grinders, the county offers every conceivable type of terrain for cycling amid forests, pastures, streams and lakes. You can ride for miles in4 continued on page 80

The Castle Crags Century offers four levels of riding, from a 96-mile ride with 8,000 feet of climbing to a 10-mile “gone fishin’” ride for the whole family. The Siskiyou Century starts out of Yreka and offers three levels of rides from a 100-mile run with a vertical gain of 4,600 feet to an easy family ride of 37 miles through the flat country roads. The Summit Century out of Mount Shasta offers at its most difficult level a 139-mile ride through beautiful country, but with a vertical gain of 16,500 feet. The Summit Century also offers three easier levels of competition. See for detailed information on these events. George Jennings is an avid cyclist and involved with Cycle Siskiyou, and he says Siskiyou County offers a lot of varied terrain for cyclers. “Riding through the farmlands on roads, you could easily do 100 miles of flat, leisurely cycling,” Jennings says. “Scott Valley has hills where people come to train for the Tour de France, but every area of Siskiyou County has great cycling with different views of Mount Shasta.” A special treat in the Mount Shasta area is the seven-mile Lake Siskiyou trail that offers forest, meadows and streams around a beautiful lake that you can dive into for a refreshing swim. Siskiyou County offers beauty wherever you look and a bike just may be the perfect way to enjoy the incredibly varied terrain. Come up and ride for a week. You may never want to leave. •

a lesson learned

B y N at e S a n t i , a g e 8 One Sunday evening, me and my brother Nick were playing outside in our backyard. My mom and dad were inside cooking dinner and playing with my other brother, Noah. I don't know what we were thinking, but we decided to see how high we could throw rocks. It was fun until a rock, the size of an orange, came down and hit my brother in the head. Nick was a mess and crying loudly. I was freaking out because blood was gushing down his face. My dad came out to help. We took Nick inside to clean off the blood. We drove to the emergency

room as fast as we could. When we got to the hospital, we carried Nick inside. It was busy and we had to wait for hours! When it was Nick's turn, my mom took Noah and I to the car so we could hang out. It took about 20 minutes for Nick to get his head super-glued back together. My dad and Nick met us at the car. We went to get burgers and fries from In-N-Out Burger. We went home to eat dinner, take showers and go to bed. The lesson I learned was not to throw rocks because what goes up must come down. •

Pesto, Zucchini, and Feta Tart ingredients 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed (if frozen) ½ cup pesto 3 shallots, thinly sliced 1-2 medium or large zucchini, thinly sliced 2 T olive oil Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste ½ cup crumbled feta cheese ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese 1 egg, lightly beaten ¼ cup fresh basil, finely chopped Zest of 1 lemon PREPARATION 1 | Preheat oven to 400F. Line a 9x12-inch baking sheet with parchment paper. 2 | Prepare a clean flat surface by lightly dusting with flour. Roll out the puff pastry so that it is

just slightly bigger than the baking sheet. Transfer onto the baking sheet, being careful not to tear the pastry. Fold the edges b ack in to create a 1/2-inch border. Spread the pesto onto the pastry, covering the whole pastry, but leaving the border untouched. 3 | In a large mixing bowl, toss together the zucchini slices with olive oil, salt and pepper. Arrange the slices on top of the layer of pesto, overlapping them slightly as you go. Sprinkle with the crumbled feta and grated Parmesan cheese. 4 | Lightly brush the edges of the pastry with the beaten egg. Bake the tart in the preheated oven

for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastry is puffed and golden, and the zucchini is just starting to brown around the edges. 5 | Let cool for about 5-10 minutes. Add a scattering of chopped basil and fresh lemon zest at

the last minute, just before serving.

HONOR by Patrick John

“The museum is not about war; it’s about the men and women who wear the uniform and their patriotism.” ~Rob Burroughs

You often hear folks in the North State marvel how kind and supportive this area is to veterans. We are home to the Northern California Veterans Cemetery in Igo, Redding’s VA medical clinic and the brand new veterans home opening Oct. 25. Redding also contains a hidden gem just south of the Redding Municipal Airport: the Northern California Veterans Museum and Heritage Center. You can’t miss the big orange building off Airport Road with a replica World War II German Panzer IV tank out front. I had the privilege of taking a tour over the Independence Day weekend, and was floored by what’s hidden behind those walls. History classes in school were a little boring for me (sorry, Mr. Holt!). This museum allows you to immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of history, and truly absorb a piece of what others experienced while serving. The museum’s president, Rob Burroughs, served two tours in Iraq, retiring as a senior chief petty officer with 19 years of service as a U.S Navy Seabee. Burroughs continues to serve as a member of the U.S Navy Reserves. He points out, “The museum is not about war; it’s about the men and women who wear the uniform and their patriotism.” The museum has been a labor of love for Burroughs. Many of these artifacts are from his personal collection, while others have been donated by veterans or their families. You’ll see a rare Civil War uniform, sword and scabbard, a 1917 Studebaker WWI surplus ambulance and a 1942 wedding dress made of parachute silk. More than 5,000 items covering the Civil War, World War I, World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, the Grenada/Panama/Beirut conflicts, Persian Gulf War, conflicts in Somalia and Kosovo, and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are featured. Most recently, the

museum acquired a statue from this year’s Tournament of Roses Parade float honoring Korean War Veterans. Approximately 15,000 additional items are currently in storage awaiting a permanent home. Renderings are complete for a museum site on land across the street, but red tape makes for a slow process. Not only is Burroughs the museum’s president and curator, he also keeps an office at the newly formed Homeward Bound Project Headquarters next to the museum. The nonprofit’s goal is to provide financial and emotional support for post 9/11 veterans and their families. Services include temporary assistance, counseling, job training and more. The headquarters also features a tribute to Naval Petty Officer Chad Regelin of Anderson, a bomb disposal expert killed by an explosion in Afghanistan in January 2012. A diorama containing a life-sized mannequin in full bomb disposal gear, plus replicas of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and added explanations and pictures ensure Regelin’s legacy. The items had to be procured through the Pentagon and were installed by Regelin’s family and fellow service members. The museum is preparing to unveil a nearly finished mobile museum for outreach and school visits. Field trips and tour groups are welcomed. With the anniversary of 9/11 this month, it may be a poignant time to visit. I would urge you and your family to make a trip to the Northern California Veterans Museum to see this amazing gift to the community. Museum hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 10am-5pm. Admission is free, but a donation of $5 is suggested. For more information on the museum, visit or call (530) 378-2280. For more details on the Homeward Bound Project, call (530) 378-8046.

Make Life Easier! While spending time with your family keep in mind these simple signs that mom and dad may be needing help at home:

8 Caregiving Considerations 1. MEDICAL CONDITION – Has your loved one been diagnosed with a disease, illness or other medical condition that could impact their daily living? How is the medical condition likely to cause limitations to a person’s abilities now or in the future?

5. BEHAVIOR – Does your loved one seem anxious or irritable? Does being away from home make them uncomfortable? Do they seem depressed? Are they inconsistent in the things they say? Does your loved one remember names, places and current events?

2. DRIVING - If your loved one drives, is there reason to believe they pose an above average risk for being involved in an accident? How are their reflexes, vision and ability to respond in an unexpected situation? Are they likely to get lost and panic?

6. MEDICATION - Can your loved one manage their medications properly including dosage, frequency and changes to prescriptions? Do they understand why they are taking the medications? Are prescriptions getting refilled in a timely fashion?

3. FOOD/NUTRITION – Is your loved one eating balanced meals? Is their weight stable? Are they able to prepare meals? Are they able to manage grocery shopping? Do they have a reasonable variety of food in the refrigerator (with future expiration dates)?

7. FINANCES – Does it appear that your loved one is capable of making sound financial decisions? Are they able to manage their personal finances? Are bills being paid in a timely fashion? Do they have a reasonable amount of cash on hand?

4. HYGIENE - How does your loved one look and smell including their breath? Does it appear they are bathing regularly? How are their overall appearance, grooming and ability to match clothing compared to prior years? Do their bed linens and bath towels appear clean? Are they able to manage the laundry?

8. MAIL - Is the mail stacking up? Do you see any past due or delinquency notices? Does your loved one appear to be a target for solicitation offers?

Hat Creek Grown: Henry and Pam Giacomini

Saturday, September 28, 2013







ENJOY: You say that the beef from Hat Creek Grown is “beyond organic” – what does that mean? Henry: We’re doing everything on the land that would certify us as organic, but we’re not confident that going through the regulatory process would get us where we need to be. Organic, to us, is about the system. It’s how we work with our environment, not conquer it. We let nature tell us what works. Our cattle aren’t implanted with hormones or unnecessary antibiotics. We don’t buy chemical fertilizers for the grass. It’s about trying to build a business that, one, is in harmony with the environment, and two, ebbs and flows with what’s around us, rather than fighting it. ENJOY: Why is it important to buy local beef? Henry: What makes it feel good to us is that we can form a one-on-one relationship with the people who buy our product, and people can see how the product is produced and where. When we can build those communications and get to know people and let them know us, it’s a better circle. I think it’s the ultimate food system. Of course, we also know that it keeps the dollars in our county. If we’re lucky, we can also sell to folks outside of the county and bring more money back here. ENJOY: How long has your family been in Hat Creek? Henry: Pam’s family first came here in 1903. We’re the fourth generation to operate the home ranch. We moved here in 1988; I grew up in

Humboldt County, and Pam and I both graduated from Cal Poly. We moved to Humboldt County to be near my family and we worked on their dairy farm, but the dairy life wasn’t really cutting it for us. The opportunity came up for us to move to Hat Creek, and we took it. ENJOY: Why do you love Hat Creek? Henry: It’s home. It’s a beautiful spot. We know we’re lucky to be here. It’s a great community and we have a lot of great neighbors. ENJOY: What is your philosophy? Henry: Our ranching philosophy is to take care of the land, take care of the cattle and take care of the people who work here, so everyone and everything is better for it. If we see any of those things are starting to suffer or get off kilter, we know it’s not meeting our goals and we need to make a shift. The land is important and we need to take care of it – maintaining healthy ecosystems; keeping them healthy, productive and viable; and hopefully leaving more than we’re taking so the next generation has the same opportunity we’ve had. ENJOY: What do you hope to deliver to your customers every day? Henry: We’re really excited about the quality we’re able to produce on a consistent basis. We want the product to sell itself. It’s a good product and we’re really proud of it.

BACK TO BASICS “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.� ~Nelson Mandela

The Back To School Project is an outreach to underprivileged school-age children in Tehama County. The project provides new shoes, clothing and backpacks to eligible children. The project also provides free haircuts for any school-age child. Through various fundraisers and private tax deductible donations, the project provides a shopping day for the children to purchase their own clothing with the help of dedicated volunteers. They believe that every child should be able to go back to school with pride, dignity and a feeling of self-worth. 100% of all designated donations go directly to Tehama County children.

get involved: Refer a child, sponsor a child, make a donation or volunteer.
