A well of excitement rose from Katrina Keyes’ heart the day she encountered “Inside Out: The People’s Art Project,” a concept first created and carried out by a French artist who simply goes by the moniker “JR.” By its own definition, “Inside Out” is “a global art project transforming messages of personal identity into works of art.” This black-and-white photography project, featuring people of all ages, races and walks of life, has included portraits of more than 120,000 people from 108 countries and has appeared on all seven continents. Keyes was enthralled with the idea of converting this global concept into something that would touch hearts and affect positive change in downtown Redding. But she would add one important element: a questionnaire that would allow the person in each photo to share a bit of his or her story with the community, and, ultimately, with the world at large. “A community is the sum of the hearts of its people,” says Keyes. “In order to reveal someone’s heart, you have to ask good questions. I want to influence people’s perspective of downtown by revealing the actual people who live and work there on a daily basis.” “I believe in the power of an image to influence someone’s perspective. And I believe in the story behind that image,” Keyes says, recalling the National Geographic cover photo from June 1985, featuring an Afghan girl with piercing green eyes that is still well-recognized nearly 30 years later. “I wondered how many photos I could capture that would create an experience downtown, something that would resonate with people, something that would be captivating and powerful the way that image was.” Keyes, who moved from Shawnee, Kan., to Redding in 2008, was chatting with a barista at a local downtown Redding coffee shop one afternoon when a man considering a move to Redding made a statement that would rock her world. “But I just heard that downtown is a bunch of meth heads,” he said. “The barista and I just looked at each other. We had just had a conversation4 continued on page 20

about how badly people talk about downtown. It was painful to hear. But, I have also talked to people who have restored the Cascade Theatre. They see downtown as a place that is full of possibility, something they have invested their life, time and energy in. Our contrasting perspectives are a matter of how we interact with downtown.” That experience was the catalyst that converted her dream of creating the Inside Out Project into a virtual necessity in her eyes. “I refuse to believe that people should be categorized by what they do. When we compartmentalize each other, we create a separation that doesn’t allow us to engage one another. As a photographer, one of my values is to capture life in truth. I want to capture people in circumstances that are real, but I want people to see hope, courage, faith and a positive light in every situation,” says Keyes. In May of 2013, just two months after she had initially seen JR’s Inside Out Project online, Keyes told her mentor, “I want to do this, but I don’t know how it’s going to happen.” In June, she began to talk about the Inside Out Project. “I was at Big O Tires in Redding. I decided to tell a stranger about the project I had in mind for downtown. She was very encouraging. She said, ‘I wish there were more people around to do things like that.’ I had no plans. I had no approval. I had nothing, except an idea that I was talking about.” An article in Enjoy Magazine that featured local artist Sally Marbry painting the electrical boxes throughout downtown inspired Keyes to

reach out to a woman who shared her passion for making downtown a more beautiful place. “I looked her up and gave her a call. She suggested that I share the idea with Viva Downtown. Then, someone suggested that I speak to Steven and Barbara Berger, owners of Café Paradisio. So, I walked over there. Steven was sitting outside of his restaurant reading and somehow I began to pitch The Inside Out Project to him. I asked him if he would be my subject to present to the Viva Downtown Committee and he said ‘yes.’ I had always admired Enjoy Magazine and knew they shared my passion for community. So, I shared my idea with them. They said ‘yes,’ too.” The Viva Downtown Committee also gave Keyes a resounding “yes.” Director John Truitt echoed Keyes’ sentiments about the interconnectedness of a place like Redding. “Towns are full of smart people who do great things,” he said. So on April 6, Keyes and a crew of volunteers began pasting photo enlargements of some of the people who live and work downtown on some of its most prominent privately owned buildings. The Cascade Theatre, The Market Street Promenade and Sherven Square are the canvases for these profound works of heart. Keyes has4 continued on page 22

I proposed in my heart to make the last year of my 20s a courageous one. Courage’s platform: Inside Out Redding. Courage is always a choice. No one is accidently courageous. It’s intentional, purposeful and causes us as individuals and communities to respond to something that happens on the inside of us with our heart. There have been a number of moments in my life when I have chosen courage and I am proud of all of them. There have also been moments in my life when I have denied courage’s power to shine like the sun. Those are moments I would like back. Being courageous throughout this entire project meant I would face every step head on, even when I thought I would be denied. Several times I came face to face with the opportunity of denial: Whether it be asking Viva Downtown Design Committee to do the project at all, asking building owners for wall space, asking each individual personally to participate in the project or asking volunteers to help on pasting day. Every time I was internally confronted, I chose to remind myself that courage was the way. Every time I chose courage, I was met with a “yes.” For this project to happen I needed more than 200 people to say “yes.” I got them. I believe that people support courage. Whether you think my dream is fascinating, exciting, cool, neat, wonderful, enjoyable, applaud my efforts or not, what I do know is, as humans with hearts, we inherently respect courage. Requiring myself to choose courage during this whole process at the beginning meant possible letdown. I have learned without possible letdown, there can be no possible victory. I turn 30 this month. I chose courage. I ended one decade and started another well.

“I want to capture people in circumstances that are real, but I want people to see

been overwhelmed by support from participating businesses, but what resonates with her most are the people who have offered their likeness and their story to this impactful project. “We have an innate, beautiful power to influence one another. I think this project has the potential for a person who lives and works downtown to literally step outside and see someone who they know also lives and works downtown smiling at them from a photograph. It may just encourage the person to smile back. There is encouragement in knowing that others contribute to downtown, just like you do,” says Keyes. The Inside Out Project will mark the beginning of a new phase of life for Keyes. She’ll close out her 20s and begin her 30s with a bang, just as the project comes to fruition. “Every step taken has been the next chance, the next risk, the next opportunity. There have been moments where I had to make a choice to be courageous or not. In every step of

WA S S UP B o a r d S p o r t s i n R e d d i n g Phil Keester feels like a pioneer of sorts. That’s because in addition to the sport of stand up paddleboarding being fairly new, the idea of standing on a board while navigating the Sacramento River is definitely uncharted territory for most. Keester, who began his WASSUP Board Sports business last summer, believes there’s a whole segment of recreation that’s yet to be fully explored in the North State. “I think there’s a lot more fun to be had out here,” says Keester. “I love paddling on flat water, but for me it’s more fun being on a river. It’s got something for everyone.” Although stand up paddleboarders are already tackling class 4 and 5 whitewater rapids (aggressive water), Keester sees a big market for easier trips like the Sacramento River through Redding, Anderson and beyond. He took about 200 people on guided trips last year and expects an even more robust season for stand up paddleboarding this summer. Expect to see people standing and gliding down the river near the Sundial Bridge as the community celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the iconic footbridge in June and July. “One thing I really like about operating on the river is we’re in front of everybody,” Keester says. “This summer is exciting with the Sundial

Bridge anniversary. We’ll have a presence out there every day.” When people see Keester and his friends on the river, the common refrain has been, “That looks like fun.” The boards are stable enough for most anyone to balance on and not go plunging into the river (unless they choose to), he says. The company also does trips and instruction on Whiskeytown and Shasta lakes. Although the water temperature of the Sacramento is indeed brisk, Keester doesn’t consider it unbearable. He did several trips this winter in board shorts and light clothing. In the blazing summer heat, a dip in the river can be a refreshing way to stay comfortable. “People have a healthy respect for this river and that’s good,” he says. “I respect any body of water.” Growing up around the surf culture of Southern California, Keester loved being in the water but never fully mastered the difficult sport of surfing. Stand up paddleboarding is different, however. About 70 percent of the people he took out last year were first-timers. “The first time I was on a board was 15 months ago,” Keester says. “I’ve always liked the surf culture and this is similar to that, although it’s actually a lot easier.”4 continued on page 26 May 2014 ENJOY | 25

Keester’s company is operating within Redding’s Boardmart, where paddleboards will be sold and rental trips coordinated. Teaming up with Boardmart, which has been in business in Redding since 1995, forms a bond that should help both businesses. The store sells and rents skateboard, wakeboard and snowboard gear as well as selling swimwear and casual clothing. “It’s a whole different demographic for us and hopefully it will help expand our store,” says Denise Craig, co-owner of Boardmart. “We’re not just for teens.” Keester says people have responded well to the company’s name (“wassup” was a popular catch phrase from a Budweiser commercial) and its colorful graphics. Rental trips range from $20 to $150. The hope is that some people get hooked by the sport and consider buying boards and other equipment through WASSUP. The company is a dealer for Glide paddleboards of Salt Lake City and NRS paddling outfitters from Moscow, Idaho. Boards range from 9 to 14 feet and prices go from $800 to $1,900.

Although paddleboards are new for Keester, the business of being on the water is something he’s done for much of his life. He began sailing in the Caribbean in the late 1970s, and has worked as a commercial captain and in boat yards and sailing venues for the better part of 25 years, including sailing in the Mediterranean. From 1992 to 2003, he has participated in four America’s Cup events (the World Series of yacht racing) as a member of the U.S. teams America3, AmericaOne and Oracle/BMW Racing. Keester worked as procurement and logistics manager for most of those teams. “To participate at the highest level of any sport is a thrill,” he said. “I grew up reading and dreaming about sailing. Those years were definitely a highlight of my life. But I’ve found my passion again (with stand up paddleboarding). I’m on moving water again, although this time it’s on fresh water.” • (530) 945-4945 Jim Dyar is a freelance writer, musician and a former arts and entertainment editor at the Record Searchlight.

Meanwhile, in Humboldt Bay, an armored carp navigates toward shore with an oversized iguana close on its tail. Welcome to the Kinetic Grand Championship, a madcap mélange of art and engineering that transforms every Memorial Day weekend in Arcata, Eureka and Ferndale into a coastal celebration of human-powered ingenuity. “There’s a lot to love about the Kinetics,” says Kati Texas, one of the event’s reigning Rutabaga Queens and a longtime participant. “Definitely the people involved. Kinetic racers travel from all over the country just to race in our race. It’s the grand championships; the granddaddy of them all. Meeting those people, hanging out with them, competing with them … it’s one of my great pleasures.”4 continued on page 30

The race got its start in 1969 when Hobart Brown, a local sculptor, welded a pair of wheels onto his son’s tricycle and called it a Pentacycle. Jack Mays, his friend, built a moving sculpture of his own, and the two decided to set up the world’s first kinetic sculpture race as part of the Mother’s Day art fair in Ferndale. Some 12 vehicles took part in the two-block race downtown, which was won by Bob Brown of Eureka, who piloted a smoke-spewing turtle that laid eggs—and a fun tradition was born. Some 45 years later, the Kinetic Grand Championship has evolved into a three-day, humanpowered, 42-mile race over paved roads, sand dunes and water from Arcata to Ferndale. The race’s novelty spawned national and international interest and resulted in kinetic sculpture races in Baltimore, Port Townsend, Wash., Ventura, Austin, Texas, Longmont, Colo., Poland and Australia. Fun is foremost at the race but Texas says it’s culturally important as well. “It’s where art, engineering and athleticism all meet. It takes so many people to create a successful vehicle. You need engineering, somebody with a head for business, athletes, and an artist to make it look cool. Sometimes it’s all the same person, but that’s rare. It’s usually a collaboration.”

Texas says she started racing in 2003 as a member of renowned artist Duane Flatmo’s pit crew. She became part of Rutabaga Royalty when she was elected Rutabaga Queen in 2008 and began running her own team. In 2009, she earned the coveted ACE award for designing and piloting a vehicle that follows all the rules and completes the race. “Out of 50 or 60 teams, 15 or 20 attempt to ACE it and only half will make it,” Texas says of the feat. She raced a couple more years before taking a seat on the Kinetic Universe board of directors. The nonprofit Kinetic Universe was formed in 2007 to take over the task of conducting the Kinetic Grand Championship. Eureka resident Ken Beidleman, a former Redding business owner and Shasta High graduate, has had a 30-year love affair with the race. As a metal sculptor with a strong interest in engineering, design and human-powered vehicles, the race appeals to him on several levels. “Not to mention, it’s like a big giant family reunion for me. There’s about 300 to 500 people I’ve gotten to know” who flock to the coast each year for the big race. The goal of the race is fairly straightforward, Beidleman says: “Escorting a giant piece of art from here to Ferndale without screwing it up.”4 continued on page 32

Featuring this month's Tasty Treats News!

Pallets of food donated to S.A.F.E. in the North State in Shasta County pictured: Cheryl Gorewitz, Co-Founder/Treasurer

S.A.F.E. is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization, founded in March 2010. The primary purpose of the organization is to reduce pet overpopulation in Shasta County by encouraging more people to spay and neuter their pet. They provide financial spay/neuter assistance to low-income pet owners, who are the least likely to spay/neuter because of the expense. For more information visit their website at

Food to the rescue

The Pups on Parole program started in June 2007 to help give homeless dogs a second chance at finding an adoptive family. All the dogs in the program spent time in our local animal shelter waiting for their owners to redeem them or to be adopted. Some were scheduled for euthanasia prior to being placed in our program. The selected dogs are brought current on vaccinations, spayed/neutered if necessary, microchipped and heartworm tested. They are then taken to the California Correctional Center firehouse where they are each assigned to an inmate firefighter trainer. The trainers give these dogs the extra time, love and attention they need to become wonderful family companions. Most graduates are housetrained and know basic obedience commands. Since inception of the Pups on Parole program, over 350 dogs have been adopted.

The Chester store donated a pallet of food to PAWS, The Plumas Animal Welfare Society. PAWS is a private, nonprofit cat rescue founded in 1999 in response to the rising euthanasia rate in the county shelter. Annually, PAWS rescues over 400 cats and kittens from Plumas County Animal Control. They provide medical care, immunizations and spay/neuter them prior to adoption. Additionally, they provide spay/neuter discount certificates through their SNAP program to Plumas County residents who are unable to afford the cost of surgery on their own.

In his 30 years of racing, he has won the championship six times and received an ACE award 13 times. No longer feeling the need to prove himself on the course, Beidleman says he now focuses on the “entertainment factor.” For this month’s race, he is going to unveil a 25-foot-long shark made in the steampunk genre. The art piece will eventually reside in Lost Coast Brewery’s new brewhouse as part of a sponsorship agreement. Beidleman says it will be the 14th entry for the vehicle’s frame, which he spent 2,500 hours and $13,000 in materials to create. Each of the machine’s four pilots will have 588 gear possibilities at their disposal. Such a range of combinations is required to navigate the sculpture through mud, sand and water. “You could be moving a half-mile per hour in the sand, but your legs are spinning like you’re going 20 miles per hour,” he says. The shark is the latest creation from the Kinetic Sculpture Lab, an Arcata warehouse Beidleman shares with five other artists.

Redding resident Dave Palin has teamed up with Beidleman for the past 29 years and says the race is “controlled pandemonium” that spectators enjoy as much as the competitors. The festival atmosphere includes zany costumes, live music, high-tech squirt gun fights and competitive camping with awards for the most environmentally friendly campsites. • The Kinetic Grand Championship May 24-26, beginning in Arcata and finishing in Ferndale

y l e v o L dy(bug) La

ON o ’ s r e s i d e n t l a dy b u g w h i s p e r e rs Rob Hunt and Susie Bewley walk into their local pub, the Ono Store & Café, speckled with tiny, red, black-spotted ladybugs. The little critters crawl on Hunt’s sweater and become tangled in Bewley’s hair. Bewley says wryly, “They come with the trade.” Hunt and Bewley are ladybug whisperers. To look at them, you would never guess what they do for a living. Bewley is a five-foot-six beauty with long, dark hair and a healthy tan. Hunt is a swarthy, handsome devil with curly black hair and long lashes over nearly black eyes. Both in their mid-40s, they exude the vim and vigor of outdoorsy types 10 years younger. They light up when they describe their business, Nature’s Way. Hunt makes it sound easy. He is all smiles as he describes finding a nest. “Often, the ladybugs are easily visible, being swarming, seething masses up to 35 feet

long and 10 feet wide, spread across the landscape like a bright red carpet.” Bewley explains, “Harvesting them is the tricky part. The ladybugs cluster around stems and branches of oak, manzanita and pine.” They are gathered by the bucketload into large cotton bags. And of course, the heavy bags must be handled gently. The hike back to their truck can be many sweltering miles through thick brush, over rocky terrain and sometimes up mountainsides. The ladybug harvest generally begins in the middle of June and continues to mid-February. Through the winter, Hunt and Bewley focus on the preservation of their stock, storing the ladybugs in cotton bags on trays in the numerous refrigerators that populate the back of their house. Because the ladybug is reaped in the wild rather than bred at an insect farm, the “crop” is highly dependent on the prevailing weather. Normally the4 continued on page 36

ladybugs lay their eggs in the valley in spring, then sometime in June they migrate back up the mountain. Hunt says, “The ladybugs are like salmon. They come back year after year.” Bewley adds, “We have about 70 favorite spots where we are sure to find nests.” Nature’s Way does little marketing, but has been successful because gardeners are more and more interested in using them: They are a natural, effective pest control. Ladybugs eat the insects that eat plants, such as aphids, spider mites, scale, white fly, mealy bugs, leaf hoppers and even plant-eating worms. They devour the pests until they are gone, then feed on new pests as they arrive in the garden. Meanwhile, they lay small clusters of eggs, and the hatching ladybug larvae immediately begin feeding on the unwanted insects. In its one-year life span, one ladybug may eat 5,000 aphids and other pests. Unlike some other beneficial insects, ladybugs don’t eat plants. And they are amazingly resilient. They have few predators: their red and black spots are nature’s warning signal that declares, “I don’t taste good.” Base camp is Hunt and Bewley’s home in Ono. This is where the whispering comes in: tender loving care of the catch. Once the ladybugs are brought home, they are poured into 4-by-8 crawl boxes in a special room maintained at about 40 to 50 degrees, with the fan always whirling. It is an impressive spectacle: crawl boxes swarming with ladybugs several inches deep and migrating toward branches of pine that the caretakers have kindly provided to them. Gobs of ladybugs are scooped into cotton bags, placed into protective crates and once again refrigerated until they are packaged for delivery. These containers are sold to hardware and gardening stores and nurseries. Customers have little more to do than release the ladybugs in their gardens; however, the manner in which the ladybugs are dispersed is the key to their success in pest control. The garden

should be lightly watered first. The ladybugs should be freed from the container in the cool of the evening when they are not likely to fly away. They need to be deposited in small bunches at the base of plants where there is food, such as an aphid problem. In the Redding area, Nature’s Way ladybugs are available at Northern Roots, Ace Hardware, Bare Roots, Garden Connections, HydroKing, Norcal and Creekside Nursery in Redding. They are also sold at garden shops and hardware stores in Anderson, Red Bluff, Orland and Chico. •

Life is a byway t h e V o l c a n i c L e g a c y S c e n i c B y way G u i d e

Let your mind play with the word “vacation,” and you may conjure up images of airplanes, tropical resorts and sticker shock. A “staycation” is budget-friendly, but even the most well-intentioned staycationers often end up doing their spring cleaning while at home. Imagine, then, a hybrid scenario in which you could paraglide, canoe, explore majestic waterfalls and check out every type of volcano in the world. Throw in some snowshoeing, birdwatching and mountain climbing for good measure. The price tag? A gas tank and a picnic basket, both full. A full-color, 162-page guide to the 500-mile Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway All-American Road is hot off the press, ready to entice visitors to buckle up and tackle this world-class drive through the geologic wonders of northeastern California and southern Oregon. The byway’s name reflects its fiery past, and the landscape is dominated by volcanic peaks, lava flows, lava tubes, caves, spatter cones, bubbling mudpots and steaming fumaroles. “I think people will gain a much greater appreciation for what a unique area this really is, and the unique geological activity that has occurred,” says Elizabeth Norton, president of the Volcanic Legacy Community Partnership. “It’s a relatively remote area with wide open spaces and opportunities to explore, to get away from the hustle of the more urban areas. The geology is so fascinating.”4 continued on page 40

So where is the best place to start? “They’re all my favorite places,” Norton says with a laugh.

The Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway is one of just 31 All-American Roads in the United States, bookended by Lassen Volcanic National Park and Crater Lake National Park. At 14,179 feet tall, Mt. Shasta plays the starring role among the volcanoes, but the byway also leads to Brokeoff Mountain, Lassen Peak, Burney Mountain, Medicine Lake Volcano, Mt. McLoughlin, Mt. Scott and many others. The byway was designated in Oregon in 1997 and California in 2002. A grant from the Federal Highway Administration funded production of a map of the area in 2012 (offered free on the byway’s website), and this guidebook, which will be sold on the website and at various locales along the byway, was a natural next step, Norton says. “We haven’t had a comprehensive guidebook for the entire 500-mile byway, and we felt it was past due,” Norton says. The guide is broken into 11 regions and includes maps, highlights of the area and contact information for local chambers of commerce or visitor bureaus. The partnership worked with the U.S. Geologic Survey and all the area’s public land agencies to build the guide, and local chambers of commerce were invited to share their input, Norton says. An electronic version is in the works for people to purchase and download to their mobile devices. It was funded by the Federal Highway Administration and Klamath County, Ore., and was produced by the Volcanic Legacy Community Partnership and InHouse Marketing Group. One of the most intriguing things about the byway is its diversity. Visitors will find themselves traveling through dense forests, across broad wetlands, along clear streams and through pastoral ranches.

Picnickers can spread out their blanket alongside a shallow lake, anglers can cast their lines into a rolling river and birders will delight in the wildlife refuges, where migratory waterfowl number in the millions during spring and fall. The guide also encourages visitors to spend some time in the local communities along the byway, many of which are home to museums, historical buildings, community parks, walking trails and fun little shops and restaurants. So where is the best place to start? “They’re all my favorite places,” Norton says with a laugh. “At Medicine Lake, you can get so close to the volcanism — to me, it’s a really special area. It’s a real understated volcano because it’s not a strata volcano like Mt. Shasta, but it’s one of the biggest composite volcanoes, and the lava flow covers over 700 square miles. There’s lots to explore there.” She’s also spent a significant amount of time lately in the Upper and Lower Klamath Basin and its lakes. “The birding opportunities are simply extraordinary,” she says. “I’m not a birder, but I’ve been there two times in the past 18 months and I’ve turned into a birder. Last time we took our canoe, and you can really get close to nature. I really appreciated having that experience.”•

Even the most eager students find it hard to concentrate on school when their stomachs are empty. Schools provide breakfast and lunch for low-income kids, but it can be a painfully long stretch between Friday’s lunch and Monday’s breakfast when the family’s pantry is bare. The Shasta Dam Kiwanis Club has eased that burden for dozens of students by sending them home with backpacks full of food on Fridays. “Our club is all about serving the youth of our community,” says project co-chair Kathy Wheeler, a retired school administrator. “No kid should have to worry about where their next meal is coming from.” The first backpack food program began in 1995 in Little Rock, Ark., when a school nurse saw a large number of children in her clinic feeling tired, sick and falling behind in class because they were hungry. With the help of a local food bank, she launched Food for Kids, which discreetly provided food for children to take home over the weekends. Today, hundreds of backpack food programs serve thousands of children across the country. It’s all anonymous, so even the backpack stuffers don’t know which children receive the donations. Backpacks are filled with enough food for two breakfasts, two lunches and two dinners, with a little extra on holiday weekends or school breaks. Items typically include fresh fruits and vegetables, canned fruits, instant oatmeal, granola bars and high-protein items like beans, cheese sticks and canned chicken. “They love mac and cheese,” says program co-chair Alex Hayes. “We include anything that is kid-friendly that they can open or microwave themselves. Sometimes we’ll include a surprise item that’s extra ‒ during the last rainstorm, we put in a package of microwave popcorn and a package of hot chocolate.”4 continued on page 44

May 2014 ENJOY | 43


Most programs target schools where at least 40 percent of students receive free or reduced lunch, but at Grand Oaks Elementary School, a whopping 80 percent of children receive free or reduced lunches. The Kiwanis club budgeted $1,000 to serve that school and received additional donations of food and money from club members. Costco donated the backpacks, and 20 students were identified by the school’s application process to receive them last spring.

The success of the program led the club to budget $4,000 for this school year so they could serve 30 children at Grand Oaks. They shared the idea with the Shasta Lake Lions Club, which now provides backpacks to 17 more children at Shasta Lake School. As word has spread, community members have begun donating food and money. Central Valley High School’s Key Club, a Kiwanis Club for high school students, helps stuff the backpacks.

National Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month

Osteoporosis means “porous bone”, it is a disease of the bones. It happens when you lose too much bone, make too little bone or both. As a result, your bones become weak and may break from a minor fall or, in serious cases, even from simple actions, like sneezing or bumping into furniture. 44 million Americans have low bone density or osteoporosis. In fact, about one in two women and up to one in four men over the age of 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis by 2020. Osteoporosis is considered a pediatric disease with geriatric consequences. Up to 90 percent of peak bone mass is acquired by age 18 in girls and age 20 in boys, which makes youth the best time to build strong bones to last a lifetime. With the onset of menopause women start losing estrogen. Estrogen is necessary to transport calcium into the blood stream and vitamin D is necessary to transport it into bone. Women can start losing estrogen at around age 50. Men start losing bone about 10 years after women by different mechanisms. While osteoporosis is common among Caucasian women, women and men of all races and ethnicities can develop the disease. To date, the preponderance of the osteoporosis-related research has focused on the Caucasian populations with limited information available for other high risk ethnic groups such as

Native Americans. Native American women are considered “high risk” because they are more likely to smoke, have low dietary calcium intake, comprised vitamin D status, are less likely to perform regular weight-bearing exercise and may have a greater rate of bone loss following menopause. Did you know you have 206 bones in your body and it is important to keep them strong by getting enough calcium, vitamin D and weight-bearing and muscle-strengthening activity? However, that might not be enough. The National Osteoporosis Foundation has important information about the prevention and treatment of Osteoporosis and when you think about staying healthy, you probably think about making lifestyle changes to prevent cancer and heart disease. But, keeping bones healthy is just as important. You should get enough calcium and Vitamin D and eat a well balanced diet. Engage in regular exercise, eat foods that are good for bone health, such as fruits and vegetables. Avoid smoking and limit alcohol to 1- 1 ½ drinks per day. Or if you are a postmenopausal woman or man age 50 and older, or have recently broken a bone you should talk to your doctor or other healthcare provider about getting a bone density test. Osteoporosis can sneak up on you. Keep your bones healthy!

Just in time for its 75th anniversary, Shasta Dam Kiwanis received a $5,000 grant from the Kiwanis International Foundation to serve even more students at both schools for the rest of this school year and next. Their goal is to help more students at the existing schools, and perhaps expand to yet another site. The food program has improved attendance, grades and behavior, educators say. “It’s Maslow’s hierarchy of needs - learning is one of the top things, and we want to give our students every opportunity to be ready to learn,” says Grand Oaks Principal Rob Effa. “They have to have their other survival needs taken care of. It’s an opportunity to not have the anxiety of figuring out where they’re going to get meals over the weekend. They’re not so stressed out, their parents aren’t so stressed out, and it gets them into that learning focus. They come back on Monday prepared and ready to learn. It has taken some of that anxiety out of life and put the focus back on education.” Sometimes, when a family finds that their financial situation has improved, they ask to have the generosity directed elsewhere. “We have a couple families who have said, ‘Thank you very much for this, and now we’d like you to give this to someone else who’s in more need,’” Effa says. “We’ve gotten a lot of appreciation from students and their family members. When they bring the backpacks back, sometimes they’ll slip thank-you notes in there. It’s been a great service from the Kiwanis Club. They do it without any accolades. It’s 100 percent giving.”

“ Our club is all about serving the youth of our community,” says project co-chair Kathy Wheeler, a retired school administrator.

“No kid should have to worry about where their next meal is coming from.”

Meanwhile, the club is pursuing 501(c)3 status so they can receive more donations. “Teachers say the kids who receive these backpacks get very upset if they think they’ve missed it, because they’ve come to count on them,” Hayes says. “It means a lot to them. When we get reports like that, it makes us want to redouble our efforts.” •

t h e a m a z i n g p u z z l e s a n d m o r e o f f r a n k va n m e t e r With the flick of a light switch, Frank Van Meter illustrates his life philosophy. “Just like that,” he says, flooding a room with light, “the darkness is gone.” Van Meter brings light to the world through multiple endeavors that capture his imagination and express his creative interests. “God made me to create things,” says the designer, painter, musician and entrepreneur. Of late, North State residents have been captivated by the whimsy of his newest creations, large wooden puzzles that build into moveable Ferris wheels and retro-styled rocketships. On display at Enjoy the Store, the pieces fill a heart with joy and bring a sparkle to the eyes of young and old alike. The Ferris wheels come in two sizes, 40” and 80”, and rotate with the gentle touch of a hand. Each puzzle is the result of months of design that starts with a drawn image and then becomes perfected with computer software. The designs are then sent to Napa to be fabricated from Baltic birch and brass. Van Meter is currently designing a puzzle that will build into a full-sized electric guitar. “It.s going to be several hundred pieces to make it work,” he says. “When I started doing the design work in 2008, I noticed something,” says Van Meter. “Before that, if I didn’t do some kind of art I would find myself getting anxious and irritable and I would tell myself, 'I have to paint. I have to paint.'” Of his work designing puzzles and musical instrument stands, he says, “It satisfies something in me in that way that I didn't think anything else would except for painting.”4 continued on page 48 May 2014 ENJOY | 47

“The only reason that I make art is that I believe in God,” he says. “And I know that anytime someone comes in contact with goodness, beauty and truth, they are face to face with God. My purpose in life is to create beautiful things and put them into the world.” The rocket puzzle he designed seems simple enough, especially when compared to the Ferris wheel, but is something “I literally spent hours and hours on.” He chose material through which light would play at various angles, and obsessed over form and proportion of each piece. He says he particularly enjoys “the visualizing it in my head and then going through the process to get it in my hands. I'm not going for good enough, I'm going for finished and excellent.” Van Meter and his wife, Shannon, a teacher and administrator at Selah Dance Academy, are consciously cultivating lives of creativity and community that enrich others. “I’d like to get manufacturing set up here in Red Bluff and eventually hire someone to run it. Then I can keep on designing,” he says. “We’d provide the segue jobs for people to come in,

get on their feet and not have their pasts held against them.” They dream of designing beautiful products “to manufacture locally and distribute globally.” Van Meter currently has a design for a ukulele stand that is manufactured in China and distributed through Kala Ukelele. Although he was excited to receive the first two boxes of the 10,000 that were originally ordered from China, he is eager to see his designs fully created in the North State. The couple, parents of five, moved to Red Bluff in 2003 without knowing anyone and when their youngest three were small. “I was born in Oklahoma and I really like it here,” says Van Meter. “I like that it's slower and quieter.” They once spent a lot of time on the road as music ministers, performing in churches and Christian coffee houses, but now enjoy the challenge of bringing “prosperity and sustainable progress to this community.” He adds, “This is just beyond making art for us. It's really about shaping our community for the good of all.” 4 continued on page 50

T h e M a rs h a l l TU c k e r B a n d ’ s S OUTHE R N CHA R M COME S TO CHICO Greensboro, N.C., to see our first jazz festival. That experimental music left a big impression on both of us. We were floored by the soul, R&B and jazz acts we saw that night. We talked about it before the two of us went in the service and over to Vietnam. We wanted to incorporate that stuff into our sound when we got back and we did just that. We ended up crisscrossing all over the place with rock, country, jazz and blues.” Tommy Caldwell was the band's original front man, bantering with the crowd and introducing songs. After he died in an automobile accident, Gray stepped forward as the front man, and it’s a role he relishes today. In 1972, they signed with Capricorn Records and earned hit singles with “Heard it In a Love Song,” “Fire on the Mountain,” “Can’t You See” and “Take the Highway.” They made seven gold and three4 continued on page 56

The Marshall Tucker Band is alive and well in the 21st century, thanks to the “never say die” attitude of lead singer Doug Gray. “Southern rock music has a legitimacy that gives people a warm heart,” he says.  “It makes them say, 'God, what a really good thing you guys are doing.'” Throughout their 40-year career, this band has rocked out with the best of them, charted with hits and carved a Southern-flavored niche in the world of blues and gospel music. The group got its start in Spartanburg, N.C., a blue-collar town in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, when Doug Gray teamed up with Tommy Caldwell and Toy Caldwell, Paul T. Riddle, George McCorkle and Jerry Eubanks, borrowing the name “Marshall Tucker” from a piano tuner whose name was found on a key ring in their old rehearsal space. Recalling the early days of the band, Gray says, “Toy and I went to

platinum albums on the Capricorn Records label. “We knew at a certain point that we had something special," says Gray, “and could smoke almost any other band out there, except maybe the Allman Brothers.” As a vocalist, Gray says, “I was first influenced by women like Dionne Warwick and Diana Ross, but B.B. King is the one I remember listening to the most on WLAC Nashville radio late at night. I would always sleep with the radio on when I was real young. But it was B.B. King that I liked because he sang with such feeling and with heart. I always sang our songs like you would sing a blues song. I never really realized how much he was the basis of my style until he asked me to join him on stage when we shared a show back around 1975. It was an unbelievable experience. I realized how much his style had contributed to me, and how it defined me on stage with the Marshall Tucker Band.” During the 1990s, the Marshall Tucker Band placed four hit singles on Billboard’s country charts and one on Billboard’s gospel chart. The band took several stylistic detours with an all-blues album, "Face Down in the Blues," and a spiritual collection of Gospel music. In the last decade, the band has reissued many of its albums from the '70s, as well as two two-disc compilations, the first ("Anthology")

being a 30-year retrospective and the second ("Where a Country Boy Belongs") being a collection of the band's country songs. In 2004, they released another studio album, "Beyond the Horizon," and the following year released "Carolina Christmas." The band today consists of Gray, guitarists Chris Hicks and Rick Willis; saxophone, flute and key man Marcus James Henderson; bassist Pat Elwood and drummer B.B. Borden. Says Gray, “The Marshall Tucker Band has always been able to cry and laugh together throughout the years. We have always been a strong team with the driving force that none of us were individual stars, but together we were bright as the sun. “My part in all of this has been to keep the sound, music and memories of this great band together, for all the creative people who have passed through it, and for all those who bought our records and have followed us out there on the road in our live performances.” • Marshall Tucker Band • May 24 Silver Dollar Fairgrounds, Chico

Trail n

r e x i I MJ t e h a m a t r a i l pa ss p o r t w e e k e n d

A leisurely drive through back roads of Tehama County is one of the simple joys of life in the North State. Various directions wind through picturesque walnut and olive orchards or pastures dotted with cattle. Head off on Highway 36 East to Manton and you’ll end up in a quaint area of mountain wineries where the vintners themselves will pour and tell the stories behind each varietal. At any time of year, the Tehama Trail is a great guide to the local agricultural producers spread throughout the county. During the annual Tehama Trail Passport Weekend, June 7-8, it’s an even more delightful way to become acquainted with the people who grow our food and the land on which it’s produced. A partnership of farmers, ranchers, vintners and olive oil producers established in 2009, the Tehama Trail was designed to bring awareness to the wide variety of good food — and the people responsible for it — available outside our own front door. During the passport weekend, each stop showcases the fruits of a producer’s labor. In many cases, those fruits are award winning. At Pacific Farms in Gerber, many Pacific Sun olive oils have received recognition, including a 2013 Best of Show at the California Olive4 continued on page 60 May 2014 ENJOY | 59

Oil Council for the Proprietor’s Select Ascolana. “It’s validation that our product holds up against some of the better olive oils from around the world,” says Brendon Flynn, general manager of Pacific Farms, who will be on hand to showcase his olives, olive oils and balsamic vinegars during the passport weekend. Flynn appreciates how the partnership pools resources. “Lots of folks have local products available and they don’t always have the resources available for marketing,” he says. The Tehama Trail’s stops range from small family businesses like Julia’s Fruit Stand to the flagship store of Lucero Olive Oil, which has expanded to Napa and Portland in recent years. Products range from the meaty walnuts at Bianchi Orchards to the overwhelming array of olives at I-5 road stop favorite, Olive Pit. “The Tehama Trail is really something that epitomizes Tehama County,” says Bob Douglas of Tehama Oaks, Red Bluff ’s first and only winery. He expects that the Tehama Trail will grow into “a large, large attraction” that will connect both locals and visitors to the producers, and will be a shining example of the power of agritourism. Douglas and wife Jackie handcraft sophisticated red blends, Syrah, Petite Syrah, and elegant whites like Viognier, Roussanne and a Rhone blend. They look forward to offering tastings from barrels and bottles as well as tours of the vineyards during the passport weekend. They, too, hold recent awards for their work, including silver medals for their 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2011 Petite Syrah from the Florida International Wine and Grape Competition. Bestowed in February, these awards indicate that the 2010 retirement project of Douglas, a former county schools superintendent, meets the grade. Perhaps the most unique spot on the Tehama Trail is New Clairvaux Vineyard at the Abbey of New Clairvaux in Vina, home to Cistercian monks with a strong agricultural and wine-making foundation dating back to 12th Century Europe. In addition to wine tasting, visitors can experience the Sacred Stones project, a reconstruction of an 800-yearold Chapter house from a Cistercian monastery in Ovila, Spain. Enjoy the Store in Red Bluff is a hub of the Tehama Trail, selling products year-round from a special section of the store. A longtime proponent of the Tehama Trail, co-proprietor Kate Grissom finds it a passion project to showcase the goods of neighboring farms. The Red Bluff store is a tasting room for Cedar Crest Vineyards of Manton, which will also join the festivities at its winery. Surrounded by five neighbor wineries, a jaunt up the Manton leg of the Tehama Trail to experience the nuances of wine grown in volcanic soil can easily take up an entire day. Whether you get your first passport stamp in Corning, which celebrates “All things olive,” or in Dairyville at Julia’s Fruit Stand, where people flock for juicy heirloom tomatoes and sweet watermelons, you’ll find the Tehama Trail the right road to food, fun and community. • Passport Weekend June 7-8 Tickets at Enjoy the Store Red Bluff and Redding

A m e r i c a n C a n c e r S o c i e t y ’ s D i s co v e ry S h o p i n R e d d i n g If April showers bring May flowers, then gardeners ready to get their green on will delight in “Thyme in the Garden,” the spring shopping theme that begins May 9 at the Discovery Shop in Redding. Live plants, pots and tools, gloves and hats, furniture and a variety of knick-knacks for nature are designed to inspire those with a love of roots and shoots. “Since it is Mother’s Day weekend, we wanted to do something special,” says manager Colleen Giampaolo. The Redding store is one of 39 throughout California operated under the auspices of the California Division of the American Cancer Society. “We look at the shops as a window into the American Cancer Society,” says Giampaolo. “Customers come into discover a treasure, while on a larger scale we’re trying to discover a cure.” In a retail environment that offers “a unique quality resale experience,” Giampaolo and her volunteers put love and care into preparing each donated item for display.

“We wash and present it in the best way possible in order to return dollars to the cause and mission our donors support—cancer research,” she says. In addition to women and men’s clothing, the shop carries shoes, jewelry, accessories, antique collectibles, fabric, bedding, art, kitchenware, small electronics, furniture and household items for the entire family. There is a separate children’s section. When Redding American Cancer Society administrative services were relocated to Chico several years ago, Giampaolo says American Cancer Society volunteers were unwilling to sacrifice the local support services that Shasta County patients had grown accustomed to receiving. Although retail on its face, the heart and soul of the Discovery Shop is education, much of which is carried out in the Cancer Resource Center, a separate space within4 continued on page 64

store walls that includes a wig-fitting room. “We provide health education several times a year,” says Giampaolo, “and recently coordinated the cancer society’s Cancer Action Network, a legislative movement to ensure tax dollars and donations earmarked for cancer research are used as specified.” Volunteers who staff the Cancer Resource Center have been trained to give empathetic support; many are cancer survivors themselves or family members of someone with cancer. “Patients can come and talk with someone who understands, receive literature on the different types of cancer, and use the phone to call the 800 number,” Giampaolo says. Resource center services include the Look Good, Feel Better program, which teaches women undergoing chemotherapy how to use makeup to add color back into their skin, how to tie headscarves and choose a wig (all fee-free services). “We have a couple of hairstylists in Redding who work with patients that need a wig cut or shaped to suit them,” adds Giampaolo. Monthly store themes, 50-percent-off semi-annual sales and tie-ins with the Relay for Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer fundraising events keep staff and volunteers busy. On May 23, following the garden-themed event, the store will move into its next campaign: “It’s Only Black and White: Cancer Affects One out of Three,” a prelude to this year’s Relay for Life in June. “We have saved the best of our black and white items for this event,” Giampaolo says. “Customers can receive information on how to participate in Relay and can also purchase ‘In Memory of/In Honor of ’ luminaria to be displayed along the track during the event.” In October, the shop goes pink in honor of the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk (in its sixth year in Redding) and sells coupons for $10 and $25, entitling the holder to a month-long discount of 10% and 25%, respectively, on all merchandise. Discovery Shop volunteers sort donations, operate the cash register, help in the resource center, arrange displays and write thank-you notes. “Giving of one’s time or making a donation to the store are other ways people who care about the cause, but who cannot be on a team, can make a difference,” says Giampaolo.

Classical music and symphony orchestra lovers in the North State will enjoy the last concerts of the season and the finale for North State Symphony Music Director and conductor Kyle Wiley Pickett on May 10 and 11. Pickett is moving on to take over as music director for two other regional orchestras in Topeka, Kan., and Springfield, Mo.

“Hearing live music is an experience unlike any other. Kyle Pickett’s legacy to the North State Symphony, for this reason, is largely in the mind and memory. Both audiences and musicians have treasured the experiences he has created,” says Keith Herritt, executive director of the North State Symphony. “Practical Visionaries” was the theme of a recent TEDx

and encouraged audiences to enjoy the “live music” experience of classical performance. His sphere of influence has spread from Chico, Redding and Red Bluff to include concerts and other performances in small outlying communities. Since 2001, the symphony has enlarged its repertoire and its concert schedule. Says Pickett, “The North State Symphony has grown artistically and administratively. There’s nothing we can’t tackle musically. Our audience has grown with us and is accepting of all the extraordinary and adventurous music that would stretch the bounds of a regular orchestra.” Many freelance musicians come from as far away as Seattle and the Bay Area to perform alongside skilled local musicians. Nancy Overton, a founding board of directors member now on the North State Symphony Board of Regents, says, “It was a pleasure to watch Kyle work with musicians and see how their talents would blossom under his direction. It paid off in the steady growth in the caliber and complexity of the music performed for a regional orchestra.” Pickett has also shared his talents and leadership with the Juneau Symphony in Alaska, Rogue Music Theater in Oregon and Bozeman Symphony and Montana Ballet Company, along with numerous other guest conducting engagements. As the North State Symphony looks for its new music director, Pickett will begin another adventure, inspiring other communities to share the experience of live classical music together. •

Talk in Redding where Pickett expressed the impractical nature of orchestral performance with its underlying practical attribute of the community experience. He describes live music as an “audience experience... an expression of community.” As conductor, he treated the audience to impressive classical concerts, but also invited them through his pre-concert talks to understand the complexity and the beauty created in isolation by composers, and the community experience offered in a live performance. “We create a shared experience listening to hundreds of years worth of music while we enjoy it in the moment with friends and neighbors,” Pickett says. “It is relevant because it speaks to something about the human condition.” While dozens of regional orchestras around the country have faded away, Pickett and North State Symphony supporters have maneuvered through the economic and cultural challenges to establish a solid foundation for success. Pickett accepted two positions in 2000, one in Chico and the other in Redding, to direct and conduct the local symphony orchestras. While the two orchestras faced real economic hardships, Pickett’s unique talents as music director, speaker and motivator brought together the two communities of musicians and audiences in a successful merger in 2001. Over the next several years, the North State Symphony established itself as one of the finest regional orchestras in California. These were Pickett’s first full-time positions as a music director since earning his doctorate in orchestral conducting from the Peabody Conservatory, Johns Hopkins University’s school of music in Baltimore, Md., in 1998. In a sense, he was returning to his California roots where he earned his bachelor of arts degree in conducting and flute performance from Stanford University in 1993 and a master’s degree in conducting with a choral emphasis from Chico State University in 1994. He and wife Alice, along with their two sons, have made their home in Redding during the last 14 years while he inspired

Good Finds

Front Yard f lorist

P e ta l s i s m o r e t h a n a f lo w e r s h o p Every spring, approaching Mother’s Day, Jamie Wright’s neighbors found that flowers would begin missing from their front yards. With only one or two being taken from each, it remained a mystery they didn’t fret about solving. Wright’s mother could come home to find a loving, handmade display of color on her front door, reminding her of the place she had in her daughter’s heart. Now, Wright comes by her flowers more honestly. However, the passion behind her creations remains the same. Petals is more than a flower shop. What brings the plants, containers, gifts and cards together is an attitude of caring and an embrace of community. Located in what is becoming a new downtown area for Mount Shasta, Petals is a store where Wright’s character and loves are translated through flowers into the emotions and lives of the customer. Moving from her family home in Whittier, the budding floral artist settled in Santa Barbara. Wright worked with various florists and flower stand businesses, learning bits and pieces of her craft. She longed for seasons, hungering for

winters, which turned to springs, while summer blazed into the colors of fall. Her desires brought her to Mount Shasta, where she took a job in a florist shop, only to discover she didn’t fit in the box. “I’m unique,” Wright says. “I wanted to do things my way.” For the next six years she worked outside the craft, until her nature took hold of her and she opened her own outdoor flower stand. “It was a challenge,” Wright says. “Those seasons brought the elements: the wind, the heat, and cars.” Her grandfather gave her the financial seed to begin, and she carefully raised and nurtured it. Her aim was to create a business reflecting her heart. Over the next 18 years, she began traveling to San Francisco to pick out flowers. She moved the stand into a small house, then the house next door, caring for the shop as it grew and blossomed. She did a wedding, then after awhile she had done hundreds of weddings. Customers were given handcrafted unique arrangements or, if needed, a single rose.4 continued on page 72

In the fall of 2012, Wright’s vision opened wide when a main street location became available and everything around her had grown to maturity. Her creativity exploded into a store she describes as “industrial shabby chic.” Wright says, “I created everything from the ground up. I wanted to give a special touch to this place and my community. I’ve found a place where I could continue to grow.” Bright green shoots of bamboo growing in water shadow her worktable. Nearby, on shelving, the sharp angles of clear glass vases wait to be filled. Moss-covered birdhouses give the sense that living occupants will emerge as the sun is deflected through a bead curtain and past Chinese paper lanterns. Windows panes are filled with mirrors, while distressed furniture gives the gifts a comfortable home. Below a shelf where a clay sun beams, a black gray cat stretches out across the floor with a gentle yawn, observing a birdcage guarding a plant. Underneath the chrome lamps, Wright continues to grow as an artist. Her business includes large and small event planning and catering, interior decorating and floral design. From servicing events for the Hearst Corporation to intimate family gatherings, everything she creates is one of a kind. Nothing from Petals is a copy of another order or event. “I want to bring joy and a smile,” Wright says. “Flowers are the one thing I use to extend myself to other people.” Underneath a table is a suitcase, resting from years of travel, finally finding its place. Wright’s 8-year old daughter Ella Sophia Coleman is already taking her mother’s flowers and bringing her own special touch to them. “This is my dream,” Wright says. “This is more than a shop. This is me.” • Petals Flowers 315 South Mount Shasta Blvd., Mount Shasta (530) 926-4474

Purposefull T e h a m a a d u lt l e a r n i n g c e n t e r Traveling from her Corning home to the Tehama Adult Learning Center in Red Bluff takes Kristin Estrada longer than the usual 45 minutes by highway. “She gets on the bus about 6:45 am and arrives at school about 8:30,” says her mother, Patty, regarding the two days a week she does not drive her daughter to school. In spite of the extra time involved, the trip is one with purpose.

Estrada, who lives with cerebral palsy, is one of nine students with a developmental delay or handicapping condition being served by the Tehama County Department of Education’s Adult Learning Center program. Designed for students ages 18-22 with moderate to severe disabilities, most transition into the program from high school through an Individualized Education Plan.4 continued on page 76 May 2014 ENJOY | 75

“The classroom focus is on social skills development and how to conduct oneself in a group or business situation,” says program supervisor Julie Howard. The adult learning center uses community-based instruction to develop and strengthen not only communication and social skills, but also daily living skills, work experience and confidence in leisure and recreation activities. Functional academics are taught in an applied rather than rote manner. “Ultimately, our goal is to get them involved in a work program where they are gaining income or involved in an adult day program,” says teacher Kelli Stroud. “We want them to be active members of the community.” In addition to the center’s onsite options, students also gain experience through its partnerships with local businesses like Goodin’s Rock Garden Nursery in Proberta and St. Elizabeth Community Hospital in Red Bluff. “I just adore them,” says Cathy Goodin about the students who assist her five days a week. “They spread gravel, move plants, weed and water. Sometimes they prune. On Fridays, we garden in a little area in the back that we have set up for our own use.” This is Goodin’s third year working with the program. Student interest drives participation, says Stroud. “We ask if they like to work outside or inside, alone or with others, with people or with things. If I have students who can’t communicate, I use a picture interest survey.” Estrada chose the center’s school-based enterprise, The Barkery, where she and other students make all-natural dog biscuits for resale to the community. She assists by stirring ingredients, and though she cannot maneuver the biscuit cutter, she places the bones on the tray once they are ready for baking. “She enjoys having that job,” her mother says. “It makes her feel like she’s doing something good and worthwhile. And she feels useful.” The Barkery began in 2007 when a teacher brought the concept with her to the Tehama Adult Learning Center. “The focus was to increase student socialization, independence and to get them to realize cause and effect,” says Howard. “Once students made the biscuits and sold them, they then needed to decide what to do with the money they earned.”

76 | Enjoy maY 2014

Students make a grocery list, shop, bake, bag, weigh and sell biscuits in three sizes. “As a class, they have to reach consensus on how to spend the money,” says teacher Stroud. “They can set a short-term goal like going to a pizza parlor, but then they need to evaluate short-term versus long-term gain. The majority of our students do not come to us with these kinds of skills.” Such a decision-making opportunity presented itself in 2010 when The Barkery received the Grazer Outstanding Achievement in Learning Award. Established by film producer Brian Grazer, it recognizes outstanding programs and practices in special education that serve California youth with disabilities. “Students elected to expand their business-based enterprise with the award monies by purchasing a vending machine,” says Howard. Named Healthy Eats & Treats, the machine is located at the Tehama County Department of Education, where students periodically survey staff regarding desired items. They also budget, purchase, stock and maintain all machine operations. Estrada, who recently turned 21 and will age out of the program next year, is working on regaining physical strength in order to attend school longer than her current two hours per day. “She enjoys going to the adult learning center because she has many friends,” says Patty Estrada. “They also have a wheelchair-accessible van so she gets to enjoy many outings with the group.” Stroud and her team presented to the class a plaque bearing the names of the students who aged out of the program this year. It hangs proudly on the wall for all to see, but especially for students needing encouragement to continue their education. • Find The Barkery biscuits at Enjoy The Store Red Bluff, the Special Olympics on May 6 in Red Bluff, or order online at

Are you ever too old to kick up your heels, be creative and just have fun? The Siskiyou Senior Players, ages 57 to 81, think not. Eight years ago, Joan Lucas of Broadway, movie and television fame who starred in “Singing in the Rain” with Gene Kelly brought together a group of seniors to act, sing and dance in Mount Shasta. The effort was dedicated to enhancing the lives of seniors and entertaining the community at local events and a year-end show. Lucas passed away in 2009, and the mantle of directing the Siskiyou Senior Players, taught as a class open for ages 50 and up at College of the Siskiyous in Weed, was taken up by Leon Grabowski in 2011. Grabowski is one of three original members still in the group, and he said he volunteered to be the leader three years ago because “I loved it so much that I wanted to see it stay alive.” “We write and choreograph almost all our own material and members are encouraged to contribute,” Grabowski says. “We satirize the culture, attitudes and politics of our community. This year’s show is entitled ‘The State of Confusion, A Mockumentary on the State of

Jefferson.’ We don’t just throw the show together. This is a high level of entertainment.” For those not in the know, the June elections contain two measures that aim to separate Siskiyou County from California. And yes, expect sharp writing, engaging musical numbers and finely honed performances. Grabowski echoes the sentiments of the other Players when he notes that one of the group's priorities is to just have fun. “It's a family. We look out for each other, take each other to doctor’s appointments and call each other when we’re down,” says original member Suzie Boyd. “I was brought into the group by Joan. She was so inviting. I felt needed, necessary and excited and I love to make people laugh.” Laughter, indeed, is a huge part of the Siskiyou Senior Players, from the sounds of hilarity that echo every year off the walls of the standingroom-only performances in the Black Box Theater at College of the Siskiyous to the heartfelt togetherness at rehearsals, where there are4 continued on page 80

no mistakes, just support with a humorous jibe and correction with a smile. Thamar Wherrit is the oldest member of the cast at 81, and is an original Player. “If it isn’t fun, we don't do it,” Wherrit says. “At this age, we have the opportunity to engage our creative juices.” Each year’s performance has a theme and the group provides equal opportunity when it comes to taking shots at all political and cultural persuasions. “We take no prisoners,” Wherrit says of the group's outrageous skits. The Siskiyou Senior Players sport a lot of gray hair and wrinkles, but there is no lack of energy, creativity and camaraderie that translates into a highly entertaining theater group that show no signs of slowing down. In addition to the year-end performance, the Players are available to perform at community events and special engagements. • Siskiyou Senior Players May 9-10, 7 pm; May 11, 3 pm Black Box Theater, College of the Siskiyous, Weed

Among national park lovers, it’s hard to find locals unfamiliar with Lassen Volcanic National Park, and most people know of the Redwood National Park. But Tule Lake Unit World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument? That one is likely not on the radar for most vacationers.4 continued on page 84

Riders will also have an opportunity to ride through history and explore the Lava Beds National Monument. The park has more than 700 lava tube caves, one of the highest concentrations in the world. A rest stop at the visitor center will give riders a quick taste of caving if they spend a minute to check out Mushpot Cave. Another rest stop, at Captain Jack’s Stronghold, will introduce riders to the Modoc War of 1872, where a small band of Modoc Indians held off the U.S. Army for six months using unique geological features. With mostly flat terrain, the Art of Survival ride can be enjoyed by all skill levels, and ranger talks will add historical substance. The ride ends with a dinner at the Favell Museum in Klamath Falls. “We hope many will come back and want to stay longer,” says Reynolds. “We just hope to pique interest about somewhere spectacular but a road less traveled.” •

For one thing, it’s brand new. Designated a national monument in 2008 and funded in 2012, the Tule Lake Unit hopes to pull curtains aside to acknowledge and inform visitors of one of America’s not-sospectacular moments in history. The Tule Lake Segregation Center National Historic Landmark and nearby Camp Tulelake in eastern Siskiyou County were both used to incarcerate Japanese Americans during World War II after they were forcibly removed from their homes and businesses. In fact, the Tule Lake Unit housed those deemed especially disloyal, a moniker determined by two questions: What is your loyalty to the Japanese government? And Would you serve in the United States military? Any negative answer, no matter the reason, earned incarcerates a trip to the segregation center, where the government added 28 guard towers and barbed wire to keep them from the world. “It essentially became a prison camp,” says Mike Reynolds, park superintendent. “Some incarcerates were even veterans of the U.S. Army. It’s a shameful story but it doesn’t change the fact that it happened.” By war’s end, 29,000 incarcerates passed through the camp. The unit serves as one of four rest stops on The Art of Survival Century, an organized bicycling event to be held Saturday, May 24, to offer participants a unique way to experience largely undiscovered parts of Siskiyou County. Riders can choose to cruise a full 100 miles on two wheels or opt for shorter 45- or 35-mile routes, starting and ending at the Butte Valley Fair Grounds in Tulelake. The county’s Economic Growth Group made an intentional decision to promote cycling tourism as part of a 5-year plan to restore economic vitality in the area, says the group’s coordinator, George Jennings. “This Art of Survival theme ties into the art of rural survival,” he says. “We hope riders will learn the history of the area. It’s a part of the county that doesn’t get a lot of traffic but it’s really an awesome park.” The ride is a spoke in the hub of the Art of Survival exhibit, hosted by Favell Museum in Klamath Falls and featuring the fine art photography of Tule Lake artifacts by Hiroshi Watanabe, a worldrenowned photographer. Also displayed will be artifacts such as painted tea trays and unique brooches, a handmade armoire fashioned from shipping crates by incarcerates, and 10 informational scrolls that lay the framework of Tule Lake’s political history.

Warmer weather will be here soon, and with it, we will be enjoying outdoor grilling and dining. There is nothing like grilled meat, poultry or seafood, and if you are looking for an easy side to serve with your entrée, try this great salad. I am a huge fan of potato salad, and although I do like mayonnaiseor mustard-dressed salads, I think my favorite is this one. The tomatoes, capers and green olives add great color and flavor, but it’s the olive oil and red wine vinegar dressing that adds

that Italian twist. If you can find Chianti red wine vinegar, use it, as it has more flavor than regular red wine vinegar. If you don’t like capers or green olives, add chopped black olives or blanched green beans to this salad. Chopped arugula would be a great addition, too. It can be prepared ahead of time, which is always helpful, and this salad is much safer for outdoor dining or for family picnics. Get creative with this and add your favorite Italian ingredients.

Italian Style Red Potato Salad serves: 6-8 ingredients

3 1 2 2 1 1 ¹⁄³

lbs. red potatoes, washed and quartered or cut into 2-inch pieces sprig rosemary garlic cloves, minced celery stalks, sliced medium red onion, chopped cup cherry or grape tomatoes halved cup chopped fresh parsley plus more for garnish

4-5 fresh basil leaves, chopped 2 T capers, drained ½ cup stuffed green olives, drained and halved ¹⁄³ cup extra virgin olive oil 4-5 T red wine vinegar 1 tsp. dried oregano Salt and pepper to taste Grated parmesan cheese for garnish

PREPARATION 1 | In a large pot, cover potatoes with cold water by an inch. Add rosemary sprig and bring to a

boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low, and simmer until the potatoes are fork tender, about 15 minutes. Remove rosemary and discard. Drain potatoes in a colander and allow them to cool to room temperature. 2 | Add the garlic, celery, onion, tomatoes, parsley, basil, capers, and olives. Toss gently to mix. 3 | In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, dried oregano, salt and pepper. Recipe can be doubled for a moister salad. Pour the dressing over the potato mixture and toss to coat entire salad. Garnish with parmesan cheese and parsley. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator to serve cold.

Prep Time: 20 minUTES; Cook Time: 25 minUTES

Billy +Patrick

DRONING ON by Patrick John

We had a little incident last month. My radio partner, Billy, was taking a leisurely stroll at Clover Creek Preserve with his wife and dogs and was “buzzed” by what he termed a drone. What he identified as a drone, I called a toy. Nonetheless, Billy was not amused. I didn’t quite share his anger or concern, but he felt his personal space had been invaded. Had he been spied upon? Had it been recorded? Who would do such a thing? It ended up being a local hobbyist with an expensive remote controlled device armed with a Go-Pro camera. Billy’s close encounter was downright invasive and creepy, but essentially harmless. This particular operator was misguided, but these machines do have some legitimate uses. First, the proper term for these devices is Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), and we’re seeing more and more of them. Media organizations now use them to gather footage for news stories (it’s much cheaper than hiring or maintaining a helicopter). Amazon. com is testing UAVs to deliver small packages directly to a customer’s door. Police agencies and emergency responders can assess for safety at disaster sites. Fire departments can use them as an investigative tool, to map blazes, and even guide crews on the ground. Farmers fly over to check crops and map agricultural land. Some cities and companies are even inspecting buildings, communications towers and bridges for cracks or damage. These are the types of UAVs manufactured in Redding at a company called AIRCOVER Integrated Solutions (they didn’t return my inquiry). For the toy kind, you can go to a local hobby shop right now and purchase one. I spoke to All Around RC and Hobbies in Redding and they have a wide variety of quadrotors or quadcopters, ranging from a basic model at $39.99 to a $419 version that comes with a camera. If you want to go all out, you can assemble your own with readily available components that give you a five-plus mile radius at a height around 1,500 feet, dual cameras that record the flight in high

definition and transmit video to you in real time (so you can see where you’re going), and GPS tracking that automatically returns the craft to you at the push of a button. One of our coworkers built his own souped-up version, and spent about $3,000 in the process! As for what most of us have coined a true drone, they are the size of a small passenger aircraft and used primarily by the military for surveillance and targeted bombings overseas. More recently, they have been used to patrol the United States/Mexican border. Redding was interested in being a drone test location, but ultimately lost out to a site in Nevada. Recent polls about drones show Americans are extremely critical of their use in the United States, with privacy listed as the main concern. Many states, including California, have bills pending that would severely limit drone use to emergency services only. One state has issued a two-year ban on all drones until proper legislation can be passed. In any case, these UAVs are here to stay: They truly are the wave of the future. Proponents say they are inexpensive and can be used in place of a human in dangerous situations, ultimately saving lives. I’m not sure I can convince Billy that most UAVs are harmless, especially since we arranged a repeat performance by the drone as a practical joke while we were live on-air. Let’s just say it did NOT go over well, but I’ll keep working on him. Matter of fact, the hobby store is still open…maybe I’ll zip over and get him one as a gift!

“They like the ambience — it’s very homey looking, and the first thing you smell when you walk in is chocolate and nuts.” Margo Lynes, Walnut Avenue Ranch

98 | Enjoy maY 2014








ENJOY: Tell us a little about the history of the ranch. Margo: We are celebrating our 80th anniversary this year! The ranch is owned by Helmuth Meyer and his son, Melvin, who still live here. Helmuth started the business in 1934 by building a black walnut cracker. They later moved it to Walnut Avenue in Chico, but in the 1970s they moved it back to the ranch. In 1997, they opened a retail store. Now we do chocolate, brittle and many other items. We don’t grow anymore, but we lease out the areas that produce, and we process almonds, walnuts and pistachios. We specialize in custom roasting. ENJOY: Who are your customers? Margo: We have lots of local people, and some very, very supportive people come all the way from Magalia. We have shipped to Washington, D.C. People come here on tours, and then continue to stop by. They like the ambience – it’s very homey looking, and the first thing you smell when you walk in is chocolate and nuts. We also have cactus gardens that people like to wander around.

ENJOY: Describe your retail store for us. Margo: We have a kitchen and a chocolate room in the back, where we make chocolates, nut clusters and creams. There’s another room where we make all our brittles. We have sample tables for our chocolates and almonds, and we expand our product lines during the holidays. ENJOY: What do you sell in the store? Margo: In addition to our premium chocolates and hand-pulled nut brittles, we have flavored almonds, black walnuts, roasted nuts and much more. We have almond meal for gluten-free cooking, and four different nut butters – almond, cashew, pistachio and mixed nuts. We make something like a Reese’s peanut butter cup, but we make almond and pistachio butter cups. We have gift packs and gift baskets, but if you want to just buy one truffle, you can.

TRANSFORMING LIVES “Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.” ~ Motto Of The Special Olympics

Special Olympics Northern California provides athletic opportunities to children and adults with intellectual disabilities, instilling the confidence they need to succeed in life. The concept for Special Olympics was born in the early 1960s, when Eunice Kennedy Shriver started a day camp for people with intellectual disabilities at her home in Rockville, Md. Her vision quickly gained recognition and momentum, and in 1968 the first International Special Olympics Games were held at Soldier Field in Chicago, bringing together more than 1,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities from 26 states and Canada. Since then, Shriver’s vision has grown into one of the largest and most successful sports and volunteer organizations in the world. There are Special Olympics chapters in every state of America and in more than 150 countries worldwide, serving more than 3 million Special Olympics athletes. Special Olympics Northern California opened its doors in 1995. What started originally as a small grass-roots organization has since become a powerful voice for athletes with intellectual disabilities, encompassing Northern California from the Oregon border to Monterey and Tulare counties.

How you can help: Become a volunteer. Coach, volunteer at an event or sponsor an athlete, a sport or a classroom. Make a donation. Visit for information on how to become an athlete or a volunteer.
