JUNE 2014 Sweet summer greets us with lazy days at the lake, evening concerts in the park and tomatoes fresh from the garden. We’re enjoying every moment of these long, warm days before Mother Nature cranks up that thermostat! First, breathe deeply and savor the aroma of the sanctuaries created by members of the Shasta Lake Garden Project. They’ve beautified their community one blossom at a time, and you can join the fun at their Country Garden Faire. Many of us will celebrate the start of summer by hitting the road — and if you’ve got a tiny traveler in tow, never fear. We’ll show you the best ways to prepare for taking your toddler on an adventure. Need a destination? Picture-perfect Castle Lake promises an idyllic retreat from the daily grind. If you’re anything like us, you have a list of breweries, wineries and restaurants that are on your “must try” list — if only you could find the time. Redding West Rotary has just the ticket. Taste of Redding will showcase treats from 20 restaurants, a dozen wineries and 15 regional brewers, along with live music, face painting and more. All proceeds benefit Rotary’s service projects. This is also the month that we honor the dynamic dads in our lives. If your special man has always wanted to fly like an eagle, treat him to an adrenaline rush and check out the Jetovator. Used with a personal watercraft, this contraption lets you fly over the water. Start your summer right with Enjoy Movies in the Park, a free, family-friendly event. Meet us at Caldwell Park at dusk every Friday night in June, starting June 6 — before we show a movie on our giant inflatable screen, we’ll pass the hat in support of our own Ronda Ball, who’s competing in Dancing With the Stars: Shasta County Style to raise money for One SAFE Place. Enjoy some family time, catch a fun flick and help out one of our favorite organizations. We’ll see you there! Happy Father’s Day and welcome to summer. Enjoy!

C a s t l e l a k e , a n ati o n a l t r e a s u r e In the moonlight, two kayakers glide through the water, cutting through the mirrored surface of Castle Lake. Above, a late spring storm has created a snowy shawl over the ridge. Granite cliffs slip like two hands underneath the lake, as if holding the water above the valley. Across the lake, the silver ribbon of Castle Lake Creek dips and descends to Lake Siskiyou, pouring into Box Canyon to become the Sacramento River. Castle Lake is atop a seven-mile road, beginning at Lake Siskiyou in Mount Shasta. The path twists and turns through stands of oak, changing to a thick conifer forest. Three miles below is Ney Springs, where in the 1800s a resort beckoned travelers to its mineral springs. From there, a short trail leads to Faery Falls, where Ney Springs Creek drops 60 feet into a clear pool. The road continues onto a circular parking lot

beside the lake. The early summer presents bouquets of wildflowers. A watchful eye can see osprey circling, looking for the trout that come too close to the surface. On a quiet day, the bears, deer and otters play here. In the early evening, frogs serenade whomever will listen. Young fishermen stand along the shore, guided by fathers and grandfathers who fished here as boys. Some were here only months ago, fishing the middle of the lake through holes cut in the ice. Hikers move along the half-mile shore trail, leading to the granite headwall of the southern shore. Gaggles of children swim to a rock poking up from the bottom, taking a moment to sit and warm on the sun-baked surface. Carved by a glacier, there is an enchanting environment here. Both recreation and science enjoy these waters. The Castle Lake4 continued on page 18 june 2014 ENJOY | 17


Limnological Research Station is here. Administered by UC Davis, the station studies freshwater habitat, providing research and education. The 110-foot depth of the southern end provides a world to be studied and enjoyed. Hikers begin here, following trails to Little Castle Lake and Heart Lake. Others pass through on the Pacific Crest Trail, one-half mile away. Rainbow trout are planted here by the California Department of Fish and Game. Fish are not native to the lake, but were introduced in the 1930s for sport fishing. Brook trout make a home here now, reproducing on their own, whereas the smaller Golden Shiner have populated the lake as the result of anglers leaving bait fish in the waters. Nearby, Battle Rock witnessed the last fight between

Native Americans and settlers, where the Native Americans used only bows and arrows for weapons. It was here that poet Joaquin Miller was injured and later wrote of the incident in The Battle of Castle Crags. The early morning sun peeks over the shoulder of Mt. Shasta, lighting the granite face here and falling down until it touches and warms the waters below. The valley holds onto night awhile longer, while the lake comes alive, waiting for those still asleep to come and play. •

Good finds

| By Jon Lewis | photos: Brett Faulknor

O S o m e t h i n g g o o d i s b r e w i n g i n t h e N o r t h s tat e Less than two years ago, Jeff and Jenny Hansen were looking for a home for their craft brewery, wading through the permitting process and wondering if their venture—aptly named Wildcard—would actually fly. Today, it’s full steam ahead for Wildcard Brewing. Another fermenting tank was installed to increase capacity, a second brewer was recently hired, three signature ales are now available in bottles and it was named Start-Up of the Year for the Sacramento District by the federal Small Business Administration. “Our growth is due to this community and their passion for handcrafted beer. The community’s outpouring has been inspiring,” Jenny Hansen says. The Hansens’ initial concerns were not without merit. Earlier attempts to jump on the craft brewing bandwagon, including the Redding Brewing Co. (closed in 1990), Kennett-Diamond (closed in 2001) and North Star Craft Brewery (2009), all fizzled. Despite those misfires, the North State never lost its thirst for good beer. John and Amanda Hutchings, whose Fall River Brewing will celebrate its first anniversary next month, were delighted to learn that. “We’ve really gotten a lot of support from local communities,” says John Hutchings, whose Intermountain-area brewery produces ales, lagers and porters for distribution in parts of six counties as well as in their taproom in the Safeway/Lowes shopping center on East Cypress Avenue.

“Sales have really taken off. It’s looking like we’re going to triple what we did last year,” Hutchings says. In fact, demand for Fall River products prompted Hutchings and Brewmaster Clay Brackley to add three more fermenters and double the brewery’s capacity. Marc Pinnell and Jack Goschke are the latest to take the leap: their Palo Cedro-based California Brewing Co. opened in February. Early results are encouraging, Pinnell says. “The reception has been fantastic and the local support is amazing. Everybody is bending over to help us.” Craft beer is brewing up a favorable response nationwide, according to the Brewers Association, an industry group with more than 1,000 members. Craft brewers accounted for 7.8 percent volume of the total U.S. beer market in 2013, an increase from 6.5 percent the previous year. There are 2,768 craft breweries in the county, the association says, and they tapped into 14 percent of the dollar share of the beer market. Jenny Hansen is not surprised the craft brewery movement has resonated in the North State. “It’s a sign that with the right beer, the right person can succeed here,” she says. Does she worry the craft beer field is getting too crowded? “It’s not a concern. I think the craft beer industry is still so young. The more people who get exposed to different styles of beer, it helps all of us. The craft beer industry is very unique in that way. We’re a very collaborative group.”4 continued on page 22 june 2014 ENJOY | 21

Pinnell says he learned early what can happen when beer drinkers are exposed to new styles. “My greatest success is I converted my brother from Corona. He has discovered there is a world beyond those mass-produced beers. Now that he’s tried it, he has discovered there really is some flavor out there.” Pinnell and his partner have the distinction of operating the Redding area’s only brewpub, offering up eight beers on tap and a menu that emphasizes locally sourced food. Furnari sausage and olive oil from Happy Valley are two examples. Like a lot of small businesses, Hutchings’ Fall River Brewing has discovered that early success can come with a price. “We’ve outgrown our space, which is a good and a bad thing,” Hutchings says. “We’re looking at an expansion in a year or so.” Helping spur demand for Fall River’s products is the brewery’s recent success at the 18th annual Battle of the Brews in Sonoma County. The upstart brewer snagged three medals: Best Double IPA (for its hop-heavy Widowmaker), best light beer (for its NorCal Blonde) and, in a real coup, the People’s Choice award for its signature Hexagenia IPA. “We were really happy. Kind of shocked, actually,” says Hutchings. Increasing distribution is the next step for Fall River, Hutchings says. “We’re hoping to add a new distributor for Chico and south to Marysville. Early next year we hope for Sacramento, Santa Rosa and the North Bay. After we won those awards, we’ve had quite a few establishments calling on a weekly basis, asking us to get distribution down there but we just can’t do it.”

With its popular Double Down Imperial Red, Shot in the Dark oatmeal porter and Liar’s Dice IPA now available in 22-ounce bottles in Shasta, Butte, Tehama, Trinity and Siskiyou counties, Jenny Hansen expects Wildcard’s name to travel farther. “By expanding our market into the retail side, we’ll get a lot more exposure than we already have. That’s where we’ll see a jump,” she says. Wildcard’s offerings also are available at the brewery’s tasting room on Crossroads Drive in east Redding. Helping to meet that growing demand will be Mike Tona, a brewer with experience at Great Basin Brewing in Reno, 21st Amendment, Eel River and Stone. “He spent some time in Redding and he wanted to get back. He’s an amazing addition to our team. He’s seen some substantial growth at other breweries, so he can help us with that. We’re lucky to snag him,” Jenny Hansen says. •

c l e a r wat e r l o d g e at t h e p it r i v e r Two dozen sun-kissed anglers relax around the candlelit dining table after a day of fishing on some of the world’s finest fly streams. “My fish was bigger, right?” one man asked the fishing guide across from him. “No, mine was the biggest one!” declares the woman next to him, pulling out her cell phone to offer photographic proof. At the other end of the table, a tired fisherman sighs contentedly and declares, “If I had to be stranded on a desert island with one dish, it would have to be that zucchini au gratin.” This is a typical evening at Clearwater Lodge at the Pit River. Seasoned guide staff, gourmet cuisine and a renowned fly fishing school have helped secure its reputation as one of the nation’s premier fly fishing resorts. The Arts and Crafts-style lodge in Fall River Mills was built in 1921 to house PG&E employees who were building hydroelectric powergenerating plants in the midst of the forested country between Mt. Shasta and Lassen Peak. “In the early 1900s, this was identified as a wonderland of water,” says lodge owner Michelle Titus. The main building includes seven guest rooms, the dining room, kitchen, an upstairs conference room (formerly

dormitory-style housing) and a living room with a stone, floorto-ceiling fireplace. The lodge’s original pool table from 1923 still entertains guests. A nearby annex includes six bedrooms, two bathrooms and an entry room with fireplace and poker table. Two- and threebedroom cabins feature family rooms and kitchenettes. Together, the facilities can accommodate about 23 guests, along with the team of fishing guides and Titus, who all live there. During opening weekend in late April, the lodge entertained guests from all over the country, including one who flew his plane from Texas to the Fall River Airport for his fifth stay at the lodge. The lure, of course, is the area’s pristine water. Fish are abundant everywhere: Pit River, Hat Creek, McCloud River, Fall River, Burney Creek and the Lower Sacramento River. Spring creeks, freestone rivers and still waters each offer unique experiences. “You experience water here that doesn’t exist anywhere else,” Titus says. “And when you’re here, there’s nothing going on. You really get to unplug and enjoy.” An on-site fly shop offers premium gear, seasonally selected flies and tackle. “You can come here with nothing more than a toothbrush,” Titus says. “We get you out on the water and teach you how to enjoy this sport.”4 continued on page 26 june 2014 ENJOY | 25


Guides build unforgettable experiences for anglers. People can’t reserve rooms online, and that’s by design — Titus likes to have personal conversations with each guest so she can find the ideal guide for them. Jeremy Baker of Redding has been a guide for six years. “I have people who have never held a rod and people who have fished all over the world and go out 100 days a year,” he says. “I also enjoy the entomology side — the knots, the ties. You’re not just buying a lure at the store. So much has to come together to land a fish. Nobody ever lands their first fish on a fly.” Each morning, guests and staff have breakfast family-style at 7:30 am, then set off on their adventures (the chef sends them with lunch). By late afternoon, they gather back at the lodge to clean up and perhaps enjoy a cocktail or two before Titus steps onto the porch and rings the dinner bell. They’re then treated to a feast by Noelle Wright of Burney, Clearwater’s chef for 15 years, renowned as a magician in the kitchen. She also bakes several varieties of cookies every day, which sit in glass jars next to two taps of Fall River Brewing Company beer, wine, coffee, tea and water service in a common area. It’s these special touches and intense attentiveness to detail that make this place unforgettable. Staff even helped orchestrate an engagement, and when the couple returned to the lodge, they were greeted with champagne, flowers and a room full of guests offering their congratulations. “You can order a bottle of champagne at any hotel, but when something happens here, it’s special to everyone,” Titus says. How did a former political operative and business consultant end up running a fishing lodge in a town of 500 people? “I had a dog and a really suburban life,” she says. “But I wanted a dude ranch — I always loved that concept.” She bought the business on March 30, 2013, and moved in a week later. It opened April 26, 2013. Titus’ two daughters, Allie and Raquel Ferrari, spent opening weekend of this year’s trout season at the lodge. Allie lived in South America after college, and now works for a startup company in the Bay Area. Raquel is studying business administration at Shasta College, and heads up to Fall River on the weekends to help her mom out. The trio — none of whom had fly fished before last year — are hooked on the sport. “You have to be completely connected to your environment,” Titus says. “There’s something really magical about being part of that water. You can’t push it, you can’t force it. Life is that way.” Because she believes in community, Titus has hosted groups like Casting for Hope and Reel Recovery, which offer unique fly fishing experiences for people battling cancer. And the lodge makes a significant impact on the local economy. “Ninety percent of the revenue we generate is from out of Shasta County, but about 80 percent of it is spent here,” Titus says. “Local food sources deliver to us. I’ve bought animals from the fair from 4-H kids. Almost everything we need, we can find locally.” As she sits before a crackling fire with her daughters, she reflects upon the place that has fully captured her heart in just one short year. “I’ve been entrusted with this jewel,” Titus says. “I don’t think I’ve ever worked so hard, and I’ve never had so much fun.” • www.clearwaterlodge.com

AS POST-WORLD WAR II BABIES are now becoming eligible for Social Security, a role reversal is taking place. Their adult children are becoming their primary caregivers. A once-strong parent can begin to need supervision and help with decision making. One-third of people over age 65 will develop dementia in their lives, with Alzheimer’s disease being the most common form. The Longest Day is designed to honor those who face Alzheimer’s disease with strength, passion and endurance. On June 21, people can help raise awareness and funds with duplicate bridge, party bridge, pinochle and bingo games. Alzheimer’s disease is known by many caregivers as The Long, Slow Goodbye, and early detection matters. Cognitive symptoms include the inability to communicate effectively, forgetting motor skills learned early in their life (such as brushing teeth or dressing themselves) and the inability to correctly interpret signals from their five senses. Psychiatric symptoms can include personality changes, depression, hallucinations and delusions. Signs include irritability, apathy, withdrawal and isolation. Being a family member of a loved one with Alzheimer’s can be difficult, but help is available. Support groups exist, as does respite care for relief from the day-to-day challenges. People who have an event they’d like to organize for the effort, such as a run, a race, a boating or swimming event or a ballgame, should register the event by calling Carole Schmitz at (530) 242-1901 so it can be included in advertising.

letter W R I T E R S ’ P R O F ILE s : J i m B a rr e tt a n d D e bb i e Spr ag u e

Enjoy: Why is “true crime” so intriguing? Jim: I taught a victimology class at the community college level for 20 years and there is just something in the human psyche, a part of human nature—I think at a gut level—that is interested in the aberrations of what people do. Enjoy: Why write about Elizabeth ‘Ma’ Duncan? Jim: MMy wife’s uncle was a juror at the trial and she grew up around the case in the 1950s. As time went by and she talked about it, I got more interested. Duncan was the last woman executed in California and part of the last triple execution in the state. I had worked at the Ventura County Sheriff ’s Department, which was originally involved in the case. Although it was years before I was there, my association got me access to the case files. I started looking into it, and quite frankly, it turned out to be a labor of love. Enjoy: What is ‘Ma’ Duncan’s story? Jim: Elizabeth ‘Ma’ Duncan had been living with her adult son, Frank, who was trying to disentangle himself from her, when she took a bottle of Seconal and ended up at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara. It was there that Frank met Olga, his mother’s ICU nurse. The two married secretly because Elizabeth disapproved. The story is really about the lengths to which this woman went to try and break up her son’s marriage. The presumed motive was Duncan’s jealousy over his relationship with another woman. Money was another factor, since she helped put him through law school and felt he owed her.

Before hiring Luis Moya and Gus Baldanado to kill the thenpregnant Olga, Elizabeth hired someone from the Salvation Army who pretended to be Frank to go to Ventura County with her posing as Olga to obtain a marriage annulment. She had solicited eight other people before hiring the two killers and none of them went to the police. One did go to Frank, but he denied the reports. Enjoy: How has the book fared? Jim: A New York agent carried it for a year, but was not able to sell it. The biggest criticism was that it was not timely. It sat on a shelf for 10 years while I worked in the jails, on patrol and then became chief of police. When I retired in 2003, my friend Patty Frye got interested and became the driving force in getting it published. It has been reviewed nationally, featured on the Investigation Discovery Channel’s program Deadly Women and I co-wrote a screenplay that has been optioned. We are working on that now. Enjoy: What advice do you have for those interested in writing true crime? Jim: You really, really have to commit to the research. With capital cases, court records are kept forever. You need those records to corroborate information gained from living witnesses or newspaper accounts. Writing is a craft. You have to take it seriously. • Available at Enjoy The Store www.maduncanbook.com

Enjoy: What inspired you to write “A Stranger In My Bed”? Debbie: I believed I could help people affected by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) get to a better place more quickly than I did. It took me 10 years to really understand what was happening when Vietnam came back to visit my husband 30 years after the war ended. There were books written by Vietnam veterans about their experiences, but not so much about the spouse and family perspective and how to help them. My husband’s PTSD had a tremendous effect on me as well and I wanted to include everything I wish I had known about the disorder.

Enjoy: What has helped you while living through this experience that may benefit others? Debbie: No one sat me down and told me PTSD could also affect me. He was struggling, but I was struggling, too. It is crucial to educate yourself and find a support system. A couple years ago, I started a free support group for spouses that meets monthly. As far as I know, it is the only one in town. The more I learned, the more I was able to help my husband. Instead of being mad that he did not want to go to a social event or wanted to leave early, I learned that social situations were difficult for him because of his PTSD. I learned not to push, or to take two cars. My understanding made a tremendous difference.

Enjoy: Describe the book. Debbie: I structured it in five parts, beginning with our story. I tried to pull out specific symptoms and behaviors that I thought would be common to other couples, hoping they would be able to say, “Wow, that sounds just like our life.” Part two offers a reader-friendly overview of PTSD, and part three covers traditional, complementary and alternative treatments. It also addresses how military indoctrination affects the disorder. In part four, entitled “Living With a Stranger,” I discuss how we can help our partners with PTSD. This section also looks at how the disorder affects intimacy and relationships, money management, communication and the reality of a future with PTSD. It’s largely about symptom and trigger management. Finally, part five looks at secondary stress disorder and the steps for taking back one’s life.

Enjoy: How has the book been received? Debbie: I am kind of in shock over the attention it has received nationally. I was selected to serve as the 2014 Dole Fellow from California for Caring for Military Families (The Elizabeth Dole Foundation), and in April attended an event at the White House hosted by Michelle Obama and Jill Biden honoring military and veteran caregivers. Last September, I was invited to the Warrior Family Symposium, sponsored by the Military Officer’s Association of America, to speak to department heads from numerous veterans’ organizations and government agencies. The number of people who approach me has been amazing. One woman bought books for her children, wanting them to know their father was not the monster they thought he was.

Enjoy: Did you have to confront stigma in your own family while preparing to tell this story so publicly? Debbie: Yes, and it was scary, because none of my friends or family had any idea about the things that were happening to us. Some of the responses I would get when I tried to talk with others were, “There’s no such thing,” or “It’s an excuse for bad behavior.” It was very frustrating and made me feel alone. When I finished the story part of the book and gave it to my husband to read, I wasn’t sure what he was going to say. Initially, he thought it was about him and not about the effect of his behavior on me. It took him a couple days, but when he was finished, he walked into my office, put the book down and said, “Wow.” He was in full agreement to share it. Even if we helped one person, it was worth it.

Enjoy: What’s next? Debbie: After being invited to give numerous presentations, I am now creating workshops, seminars and programs to take readers beyond the book. • Available at Enjoy the Store astrangerinmybed.com

The members of the Shasta Lake Garden Project understand the benefits of developing a sanctuary where you live. Through fundraising projects and collaborations, the small club has completed a number of impressive civic projects in Shasta Lake over the years, including the Shasta Dam Workers Garden, the Community Memorial Garden, landscaping at Shasta Lake City Hall and several more. Long known for its annual English garden tour that annually attracted hundreds, the club’s main endeavor these days is its Country Garden Faire. This year’s event, which takes place from 9 am to 4 pm Sunday, June 1, at Clair Engle Park in Shasta Lake, features dozens of vendors, nurseries, garden art treasures, seed specialists, pottery, food, a raffle and more. The faire will showcase an example of a garden room, provide information on drought-resistant plants and feature informal talks about all things gardens. Proceeds from the event benefit the Central Valley High School Future Farmers of America program. Entry is free. “It’s gained a reputation for being a really pleasant way to spend the day,” says club secretary Georgia Haddon. “It turns into a type of social event. In a lot of cases, everybody knows everybody. It’s very friendly.”

32 | Enjoy June 2014

Garden environments can be deeply satisfying because they reflect personal tastes and celebrate growth and beauty, says Haddon. Gardens often feature items that have been repurposed, such as old plows, water pumps, broken tiles, driftwood, ocean glass and more. Fountains, statues, birdbaths and wind chimes are common accoutrements for many garden spaces. The possibilities for what can be created are only limited by one’s imagination. One of the top priorities — aside from growing wonderful items that can be used in any meal — is creating a space that just feels good to sit, work or walk around in. “It makes you feel good to see whatever work you put into a garden, you get results,” Haddon says. “You get a sense of accomplishment. We like the end results.” • For more information, visit www.shastalakegardenproject.org

For those who want to fly like an eagle and dive like a dolphin while playing on the water this summer, the Jetovator just may be their ticket to adventure.4 continued on page 36

june 2014 ENJOY | 35


Described as a “flying bike” by designer Rob Innes, general manager of Jetavation, Inc., the Jetovator is a user-friendly, less-costly alternative to the first-generation competitor Jetlev water-propelled jetpack introduced a few years ago. It is an accessory for use with a personal watercraft. “I was tinkering around because I wanted to do my own version,” says Innes. “I worked with pieces I had lying around, items from eBay, and built a very rough prototype. It actually worked the first time.” After realizing the project was not as complicated as he thought, Innes and his team built a second prototype with the consumer market in mind. “We realized we could build a more affordable device, simpler to operate than the Jetlev, and wanted to open up the watercraft market to those who could not pay the higher price.” Designed to give people a taste of what it feels like to fly in a controlled manner, Innes says, “The transition from cruising in the water on a Jetovator to flying it is very, very gradual. There is no way to fly too high or too fast.”

When piloted by a professional, the device can ascend to heights of 30 feet and dive to depths of about 20 feet. Able to take off and land on just about any surface, it also has the capability to do full back flips and aerial spins. It works by redirecting water thrust from the jet unit of the watercraft along a 40-foot hose connected to the body of the Jetovator, which propels and elevates it into the air. The rider can steer in different directions by redirecting the thrust. The product name is actually a technical term that means “redirection of thrust.” “Lots of things have jetovators,” says Innes, “but we use it as a brand name because it sounds cool. Like the terminator, ‘I am the Jetovator.’” Innes estimates he has taught more than 1,000 people how to operate the unit and has never worked with someone who has not mastered it. “We’ve had big people and small people, older and younger people,” he says. “Generally speaking, we can get anybody flying within about 10 minutes.”4 continued on page 38

HEALTH Greenville June is Men’s Health Month

WISE

The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. This month gives health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury. The response has been overwhelming with thousands of awareness activities in the USA and around the globe reported by the Men’s Health Network (MHN). In general, men have poorer health habits and a shorter life expectancy than women. This may be because they are more likely to engage in unhealthy behaviors and are less likely than women to adopt preventive health measures. We realize that many of men’s health issues are hard to talk about, but it is essential that men take them seriously. Even the smallest symptoms, like erectile dysfunction (ED), low testosterone levels, prostatitis could indicate more serious or even a life threatening condition, such as; testicular cancer, which is the most common cancer in men and boys ages 15 to 35. Did you know that men may develop breast enlargement (Gynecomastia) which is an increase in breast tissue and can develop breast cancer? The Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) reports that more than half of American men’s premature deaths are preventable. American Indian and Alaska native (AI/AN) male statistics are even more daunting. It is significant to note that AI/AN frequently contend with issues that prevent them from receiving quality medical care. These issues include cultural barriers, geographic isolation, inadequate sewage disposal, and low income. Some of the leading diseases and causes of death among AI/AN males are heart disease, cancer, unintentional injuries (accidents), diabetes (twice as likely as caucasians), and stroke. AI/AN males also have a high prevalence and risk factors for mental health and suicide, obesity, substance abuse, liver disease, and hepatitis. There are several health maintenance milestones recommended by leading health organizations:

IN THEIR 20’S: • Physical every three years • Check blood pressure every year • Screening for cancers of the thyroid, testicles, lymph nodes, mouth and skin every three years • Cholesterol test every three years • Testicular self-exam every month IN THEIR 30’S: • Physical every three years • EKG IN THEIR 40’S, ALL THE ABOVE PLUS: • Physical every two years • Baseline prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test and rectal exam at age for 40 • PSA and rectal exam every year if in high-risk group • Testicular cancer test every year • Stool test every year STARTING AT AGE 50, ALL OF THE ABOVE PLUS: • A sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy (for colon cancer) every three to four years or as recommended by your health care provider. • A prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and rectal test every year. Men’s health fact is, one third of men age 20 or older are obese. Obesity is linked to a higher risk of prostate cancer. Thirty one percent of men age 20 or older have hypertension (high blood pressure). Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men, followed by cancer. Men are nearly 25% less likely than women to have visited a doctor within the past year. Men are more than twice as likely as women to have a leg or foot amputated due to complications related to diabetes. To ensure good health for life, exercise, which promotes healthy weight at least 30 minutes, 5 days per week. Eat a high-fiber, low-fat, fruit, vegetable diet and focus on healthy fats such as fish and cook with olive oil. Promote non-smoking. Encourage the men in your life to get regular checkups and age-appropriate screenings that can improve health and extend life!

In-house instructors conduct train-the-trainer sessions almost weekly for more than 40 international distributors. Innes believes the different levels of training help ensure safety and proper regulation. “We are trying to establish a global network where information from us as the manufacturer is translated to distributors and ultimately end users,” he says. “Additionally, we produce training manuals and videos.” Currently the rental market is the largest, and dealers with personal watercraft are seizing the opportunity to market a new recreational sport to consumers. “It is kind of surpassing parasailing,” says Innes. “People look at it and think it’s impossible, that they would never be able to do it. In truth, it may take a little longer for some, but it’s not difficult.” Priced at $6,975, the Jetovator includes everything needed to attach to a personal watercraft. “There is no drilling,” says Innes. “It is just bolt on, bolt off. It takes about 10 minutes to install with no damage to the watercraft.” A New Zealander by birth, Innes says new opportunities brought him to Redding. “We have wonderful waterways here,” he adds. “We go out at least once a week on the Jetovator. It’s super addictive.” • www.jetovator.com • (530) 222-4598

Redding West Rotary’s annual event, aptly titled Taste of Redding, is a fundraiser that just makes sense. With some 20 participating restaurants, a dozen wineries and 15 regional brewers, it obviously appeals to one’s sense of taste. With live music from five bands performing on four different stages, it easily covers the sense of hearing. Mix in The Sculpture Park at City Hall, balloon animals, face painting and a photo booth and you’ve got the sense of sight handled. But the greatest sense is one of goodwill: knowing that enjoying the appetizers, wine tastings and entertainment is actually a fun and tasty way to help the community, and the world, through Redding West Rotary’s service projects. “We wanted one signature fundraiser that was also a community event,” says Maureen Gaynor, a Redding West Rotary member and chair of Taste of Redding. Proceeds from the eighth annual event, expected to be north of $30,000, will fund high school scholarships, leadership camps, the Shasta-Trinity ROP and civic projects like the landscaped fountain at the foot of Cypress Avenue. At its heart, the event is a celebration of food in a familyfriendly setting. Gaynor and the other volunteers organizing it have included attractions to engage people of all ages, including free airbrush tattoos, face painting, balloon animals and a photo booth.

h t h ANNUAL T HE e i g D I NG OF RE D

T AS T E

The family-oriented attractions will be located in the area in front of City Hall, while most of the wine and beer tasting booths will be in the courtyard to the rear, behind a mesh fabric fence. A few wineries will be represented next to restaurants in the sculpture park to make wine pairings possible. The libations are certainly part of the fun, Gaynor says, but they’re not intended to be the focus. Befitting the event’s name, Taste of Redding will highlight a variety of dining establishments so those in attendance can get a tasty update on Redding’s ever-evolving restaurant scene. “We’ve got a wide range: View 202, Clearie’s, Cicada Cantina, C.R. Gibbs—a lot of the top names and favorites in town,” Gaynor says. Other restaurants in the lineup include Senor Rosa’s, Sweetie’s Barbecue, Market St. Steakhouse, Dutch Bros., Elements, Logan’s Roadhouse, Cinders Wood Fired Pizza, Great Harvest Bread Co., Marie Callender’s, Vintage Wine4 continued on page 42 june 2014 ENJOY | 41


Bar & Restaurant and the Woodside Grill at Gaia. Breweries available for tastings include local upstarts Wildcard Brewing and Fall River, Lagunitas, Sierra Nevada, Lost Coast, Dunsmuir Brewery Works, Widmer Brothers, Speakeasy, Crispin, Etna Brewing Co., Mendocino Brewing Co., ACE Ciders, Shock Top, Highwater Brewing and 21st Amendment. Featured wineries will be Moseley Family Cellars, Alpen Cellars, Indian Peak Vineyards, Burnsini, Dakaro Cellars, Bertagna, Tehama Oaks, Matson Vineyards, New Clairvaux, Whispering Oaks and Merlo Family. All that sampling and sipping will be set against a backdrop of continuous live music from four stages located around City Hall and in the sculpture park. Bands lined up to perform are The Billies (one of the returning favorites), Papa Fez, Upstate, Clearcut and One Sol. Lining up restaurants, wineries, breweries, bands, entertainers and the volunteers to make sure it all goes smoothly is an all-hands-ondeck situation for Redding West Rotary members and the helpers they enlist, including members of the Exchange Club of Redding, California Highway Patrol cadets and members of Foothill Interact and the Rotoact Club at Shasta College. Gaynor says it’s worthwhile, though. “It’s very gratifying for me, on the day of the event, to see everybody come together for the community, and to see it be a success for the restaurants, the startup breweries, the new restaurants … to see kids walking around with faces painted, eating pies from Marie Callender’s.” “It is a tremendous amount of work that takes place throughout the entire year,” agrees Scott Shoffner, a Redding West Rotary member, “and it’s really good to be able to be a part of something that allows us to work really hard and see a really positive result and have a great time in the process. “It builds fellowship between us as Rotarians and allows the community to have a real nice event and enjoy it with their families. They can enjoy some good food, drink some good libations and know their money is being spent right back here in this community.” •

Next Stop: Kindergarten

S

tarting kindergarten is one of childhood’s biggest milestones. As a preschool director, Jula Herzog has proudly helped dozens and dozens of youngsters make this leap. She knows it’s smart to start preparing early so your child has a smooth transition from preschool to kindergarten. “Make this an exciting time of their lives! It helps reduce anxiety for both the parents and the child,” Herzog says. “In the year leading up to kindergarten, build a foundation for a good relationship between your family and your school that will continue for a lifetime and will support academic achievement.”

Jula Herzog

Teacher/director, Redding Cooperative Preschool

First 5 Shasta has a few tips for making the preschool to kindergarten transition go smoothly: Talk about school. Build your child’s enthusiasm about going to kindergarten. Point out the school when you pass by. Talk about the exciting things your child will be doing there. Get familiar with the new school. Most schools offer a Kindergarten Round-Up. Visit the campus and meet the teacher. This helps build your child’s familiarity with the new places and people at school. Have health records handy. To start kindergarten, children need a birth certificate and immunization record. They’ll also need an oral health assessment and a full well-child health exam is a good idea. Establish a routine. Children thrive on routine. A few weeks before school starts, begin going to bed and waking up at “school” times. At least eight hours of sleep will help your child be rested and ready to learn. Read, read, read! Read to your kids 20 minutes every day, even when they’re babies. It’s a great way to prepare them for school, and it’s a wonderful way to enjoy time together.

“Excellent Dental office! I am a registered dental hygienist and was looking for a new office as my dentist recently retired. I know the profession inside and out and I searched for a great office. This is my personal list of what I look for in a dental office: --Dentist is highly educated and is passionate about their profession. --Staff is friendly and treats each individual with care and respect.-Hygienist is gentle yet thorough, period. --Digital radiography --Clean office, friendly atmosphere --Involved in the community I found all of the above and more at Dr. Parvin Carter’s practice. I was greeted immediately upon arrival. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere is warm and yet professional. The hygienist, Monique, was fantastic! She listened to my needs and was gentle yet thorough. Dr. Carter is knowledgeable and spends time with the patient. It can be nerve wracking searching for a new dentist. I’m a hygienist and it was nerve wracking for me. In both my personal and professional opinion, you can trust Dr. Carter and will receive the best care possible. On another note for those who may be wondering---I’ve worked in a lot of offices and Dr. Carter’s prices are on the lower end of the spectrum which is surprising considering how nice the office is combined with the level of education that she has. Dr. Carter cares about the community--she gives back by offering free dental days to the public where she performs restorations, cleanings, and the such free of charge. This office is a hidden gem in the world of dental offices---there are many to choose from, but you will be glad you chose Dr. Carter.” JB

mastering the art of traveling with a toddler is no easy feat. But it is possible to maximize the fun and minimize the meltdowns with the right preparation. Check out our tips for traveling with little ones and set off on a joyful adventure with your family.

Pack heavy. It would seem that packing light for an adventure would make life easier. But there is something to be said for not having to go on a wild goose chase for the accoutrements you use on a daily basis to keep your kiddos comfortable and happy. Pack additional clothing, diapers, wipes and toys for the trip. Don’t trust the weather. Just because you are headed to a typically sunny locale doesn’t mean you shouldn’t plan for rain or cool evenings. There is nothing worse than not having weather-appropriate clothing — or worse — having to purchase sweatshirts for the entire family at the airport gift shop. Even if you had the extra 200 bucks it may cost to outfit the entire family in hoodies and ponchos, is that really something you want to have to do? Dress in layers while en route. Airplanes are notorious for being extremely hot before take-off and iceboxes during flight. An hour’s drive in a car may be enough to drastically affect temperatures. Dress everyone in layers that can be added or taken away as necessary.

Embrace your inner walking medicine cabinet. Yes. There will be bumps, bruises, upset tummies, motion sickness, headaches and the like, even in the paradise known as Vacation Land. Do not be caught unprepared. Not every place you travel will have the comfort of a 24-hour pharmacy or drug store. Plan for the worst, and hope for the very best. Old standards never lose their appeal. Be sure to bring along that favorite toy or blanket on your trip. There is comfort for your child in knowing there is something familiar in their midst when everything else around them is brand new. Whip out a new toy. Or several. Kids tend to get bored easily. Bring along a few new toys to keep them engaged on the trip. Hand-held games, stuffed animals and electronic books are great ideas for keeping them entertained. Bonus: wrap the toys. Yes, there will be shreds of paper and tape in the car, but there is a certain level of joy in opening a wrapped gift, even more so if it’s not your birthday. Imagine the excitement. Never underestimate the power of a portable DVD player, TABLET, IPod and headphones. Never. They can be virtual miracle workers just before a meltdown ensues. Stash a few familyfriendly DVDs and load up on some favorite tunes before your trip and keep everyone at peace with the touch of a button.4 continued on page 46 june 2014 ENJOY | 45


Account for messes. You know those annoying trash bags that seem to be coming out of the woodwork in your kitchen? You’ll thank your lucky stars for them come vacation time. Stash some in your vehicle, in your diaper bag and in your luggage so you can keep the messes contained on your travels. And there will be messes.

Keep the snacks comin’. Ever gotten so hungry or thirsty you find yourself morphing into a fullgrown toddler, complete with screaming fits and tears? OK. Maybe not. But you know it’s not a good feeling to have to wait a long period to eat or drink. Ward off the hunger and thirst monsters by packing plenty of snacks and drinks for everyone on board. Fruit, granola, string cheese and bottled water are great options. The kids will be content until you reach the next restaurant, and the parents will have the energy to sustain through even the most awkward traveling experience.

Expect delays. Inevitably, there will be some. Your flight will leave an hour or two after originally scheduled for take-off. There will be traffic. There will be additional bathroom, food and clean-up breaks, particularly when traveling with wee ones. You may just need some more shut-eye than you thought. Plan accordingly, and try to adopt a “we’ll get there when we get there” perspective. Cut down on stress by arriving a day before you actually need to be there. That way when the inevitable happens, it won’t compromise your plans.

Bring the stroller. Even if your child is fully mobile, your little love bug may not have the endurance to walk after a long day of family fun. Even if it only serves as a catch-all for everyone’s stuff, it’ll be worth letting it make the trip.

Not every activity is designed for everyone. Be realistic about the activities you have planned on your vacation. Is your 2-year-old really likely to make it through a three-hour theater performance without a meltdown? Save everyone in your family the hassle of trying to force a square peg into a round hole. •

Leave the high chair. We get it. You want to be able to keep your kid contained during mealtime. But a stroller can double as a place to feed your toddler and it will mean you don’t have to haul another bulky piece of equipment with you. And it’s on wheels. Winning!

r e d b l u f f ’ s b ik e g u y, f r e d av i l a When Fred Avila sends out A refurbished bike into the community, he likes to make sure it has a nice, polished shine. Saved from the dump with a lot of patience and elbow grease, he knows it has potential to really impact the life of its new owner. So it better shine. Affectionately known as Fred the Bike Guy, the Red Bluff native has taken his own course of twists and turns, not unlike the cyclo-cross courses on which he loves to compete, to wind his way into the heart of the community through a new career at Tehama County Probation working with juveniles and AB 109 alternative custody offenders. A former juvenile hall building, Tehama County’s Day Reporting Center is the hub of activity for those in alternative custody. In a back cell, Avila has set up a bike shop where he trains offenders in bike repair and helps them build their own transportation.

“It eliminates an excuse,” he says of the program that provides offenders refurbished bikes donated from the community. With a bike, offenders can get to and from work and their responsibilities under alternative custody. It also provides job skills and a new life for bikes sitting in garages and destined for the landfill. With kind eyes that dance as he speaks, Avila says his favorite story is of an offender released from Folsom Prison who had been through a bike program there. He connected with Avila to refurbish 35 bikes at Christmas to give away to children in need. The project kept two mechanics busy and two people fervently polishing each bike to a shine. The project was so rewarding that the offender came back after his custody ended to voluntarily assist Avila with bike repairs at Project Homeless Connect. The two spent an entire4 continued on page 50 june 2014 ENJOY | 49


day making free repairs to the bikes of the homeless and deeply impoverished. “The success story is that I haven’t seen him again,” he says. “He hasn’t come back.” Conversely, there’s joy in seeing a different offender who reports each day after a six-mile ride on a bicycle Avila helped rebuild. The bike had been donated when it was 30 years old and came in with the original tires, clearly having been stored in a garage and not getting any use. Now it shows signs of wear, the kind that indicates it’s being used. “It’s getting more use now than it ever has,” he says. Avila discovered the freedom and joy of cycling at an early age. The eighth child in a family of farm workers, he had a loving yet humble upbringing. When computer classes were offered one summer during his middle school years, he found himself in need of transportation. Sensing his excitement to participate, his older brothers built him a bike and sent him on his way. It wasn’t just the computers that captured his imagination that summer, but the experience of pedaling to his destination. “There’s something about being on wheels and spinning,” he says. “And there’s something about being by yourself and suffering.” At 14, he handed his neighbor $15 for a bike “that was outdated even then” and entered his first road race, 76 miles around Eagle Lake. He beat every other competitor save one. He found himself spending weekends riding from his home in Red Bluff up to Mineral, a 100-mile round trip trek. He laughs now at his gumption being a teen on the road “with no pump, 50 | Enjoy June 2014

no patch kit, no worry about someone running me over.” By 18, he was working in the local bike shop, Fast Wheels, which he would eventually buy after a seven-year stint in the Bay Area as a utility worker. Life at Fast Wheels was good, and ownership served him well. Eventually it turned a profit, but the true reward always seemed to be in the community he developed at the shop. Cycling enthusiasts of all stripes found their way to his doorsteps, but so too did young people seeking mentorship and a few homeless people in search of a kind ear and a bite of food, which Avila always seemed to have available. As the economy crashed, however, so too did his profit margin. Closing the store was a painful decision, and one that will still stab him in the heart when he sees an old customer in town. Despite the hardship, “I’ve never been one to say ‘I’m going to get out of this town’,” he says. “I’ve always loved being here.” And so it’s just happened to work out that the closing of the doors to Fast Wheels opened a new door for Avila’s talents, combining his desire to work with kids, skill with bikes, and desire to create community with a wide variety of people. Under his guidance, people as well as bikes are starting to shine. • Melissa Mendonca is passionate about adding stamps to her passport and just as enthusiastic about her hometown of Red Bluff.

Rock Solid T EMPES T co m e s to t h e summer serenade in anderson

There’s a progressive edge to their music that recalls the ambient sounds of early Jethro Tull and Yes, whose members played organic world instruments like bouzouki and flute with (and against) rock rhythm sections. Norwegian immigrant, lead singer and electric mandolin player, Lief Sorbye, besides holding down the production and management of the band since he organized it in 1988, is now joined by San

Francisco fiddler Kathy Buys, a medal winner in the Comhaltas Irish music competition, along with Cuban-born drummer Adolfo Lazo, bassist Vince Lucchesi and guitarist Gregory Jones to complete the hard-rocking, Oakland-based Tempest. Growing up in Oslo, Norway, Sorbye begin his music career playing on street corners throughout Europe.4 continued on page 56

As he recalls it, “You pass the hat, playing for tips, and in the ’70s, there was a real flourishing artist scene in the cities of Europe. It was very common that you could get a permit to go out to perform in public on the street corners and actually make a living at it. If you are a teenager, it beats going to school. It beats having a 9-to-5, I can tell you that. As a result of that, I never really got a straight job.” Sorbye moved to America in 1978, shifting gears to playing acoustic folk collaborations with various other musicians. “For me, folk music never really seemed to get beyond a limited size of performance opportunity, but when you fuse it with rock ’n’ roll, you can change that. This is what we did with the creation of Tempest. You end up playing not only clubs and folk festivals, but everything from Celtic or World Fusion festivals to the corn-dog crowd at the county fair to rock festivals and even motorcycle events.” The folk style, however, is what showed him the importance of storytelling in a song. “I think a lot of mainstream pop music is shallow in that sense. There is not a lot to learn from a run-of-the-mill pop song, but a folk song usually has a story that can survive a couple hundred years because it may reflect the human condition. Had they had electric guitar, bass and drums 200 years ago, you know they would have used them.” Twenty-five years after Tempest’s formation, the band finds itself fusing folk, Irish reels, Scottish ballads and other world music elements with rock ’n’ roll which has proven popular enough to afford the five-member band the opportunity to tour the world, appearing at prestigious annual events like The Philadelphia Folk Festival, Denmark’s Skagen Festival, Britain’s Cropredy Festival and The Winnipeg Folk Festival in Canada. Their music ranges from pub-ready stompers to contemplative instrumentals to ballads about knights and knaves.

It includes rocked-out traditional Celtic tunes, such as an adaptation of “Black Jack Davy,” and original compositions like “The Great Departure.” They usually include a traditional song or two in Sorbye’s native Norwegian, such as “Jomfru,” a ballad about a maiden stolen away from her own wedding. All three songs can be found on their latest studio album, “Another Dawn.” Also on the album is their cover of The Rokes’ song “Live for Today,” which was made popular by the American rock band The Grass Roots. They also have a newly released Live CD, available on their current tour, “The 25th Anniversary Concert.” “Things have changed over the years,” he says. “The world has changed tremendously, especially when it comes to understanding other cultures.

Dream Host C u lt u r a l Co n n e cti o n s w it h yo u t h e xc h a n g e “It’s just like in the movies!” exclaimed 16-year-old Mohammed Al-Salehi after his first day as a student at Shasta High School. This kind of youthful wonderment of all things America steals Ann Corrin’s heart and reminds her of the many reasons she invited this boy into her home. A Yemen native, the young man is living with Corrin and husband, Den, for a year as part of the Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange & Study Program (YES). The program, funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, provides scholarships for high school students (ages 15 to 17) from countries with significant Muslim populations to spend up to one academic year in the United States. Families volunteer to host students, giving them a day-in-the-life perspective of the American way, as well as exposing them to community activities, vacation destinations and, most important, a citizen’s perspective on life, politics and religion. “The purpose of the program is to break down the barriers between us and the Muslim population,” says Jessica French, regional director for the American Cultural Exchange Service who administers the YES program. “This particular Muslimfocused exchange helps promote cultural understanding of both

cultures. The hope is kids come and learn about the United States, realize we aren’t as horrible as they might think, and go back and share that with their communities.” To insinuate Americans have a “horrible” reputation may pique some, but the truth is, kids in Muslim countries can’t know anything about the American people apart from what they see and hear from news and governmental sources. The same can be said from the American perspective. Short of traveling to those countries and spending time with the people, it’s difficult for Americans to know how an average person might think about world events. “A good percentage of our teenagers never leave the United States,” says French. “This gives that global perspective and adds cultural diversity.” The students selected for the program submit to a rigorous screening process that includes a year of intense cultural training. “They have to be all-around superior students and proven leaders,” French says. The cultural training emphasizes language skills but also demystifies potential barriers to integration. “Dogs are disgusting in Muslim cultures and it is one of the big barriers when they come here, so they plaster pictures of dogs in their classrooms and bring them in for the kids to pet.” They also4 continued on page 60 june 2014 ENJOY | 59

discuss seemingly benign topics such as appropriate humor. “Living where they do, they make light of war and bombs, for instance,” she says. “Understanding that doesn’t go over as well in America will make a huge difference.” Once they are accepted, the program places students in clusters of at least three per community. During their year-long stay, they are required to do enhancement activities such as volunteer work and community service. The North State may seem an unlikely mecca of cultural diversity for student placements, but French explains that is exactly the point. Over 90% of the YES students live in small, rural areas. “The big cities are already full of culture and the desire to host is less,” she says. “Families there tend to be far busier and we crave the diversity more.” Families volunteer to host students and come in all dynamics and form. The agency requires an extensive application and home visit, where representatives can see the living environment and witness interactions between family members. “It’s best when everyone is on board,” says French. “Hosting is a big commitment for the families. You’ve added a family member 24/7 for a whole year. It’s easy to have the kids around but it requires energy, for sure,” says Corrin. “But it always pays off. Your world view gets broadened in a way it wouldn’t without hearing him talking about Yemen day after day. It’s the best thing we can do to create a better world.” it always pays off.

tech guru Caden moniz At 5:20 every morning, 13-year-old Caden Moniz takes his first sip of coffee and peruses online news sites. Scanning the 32-inch flat screen TV he’s converted to a computer monitor, he looks for the latest in tech news to compile into his own online publication, VIP Tech Magazine. It’s an early schedule for a teenager, but he’s only got a few hours each weekday morning to work on his own projects before he heads off to Vista Preparatory Academy in Red Bluff, where he’s recently been named Student of the Year. Fueled by ambition as well as caffeine, the plucky eighthgrader maintains an A average and has his sights set on enrollment at UC Berkeley. “It started as something little, a couple of articles,” Caden says of VIP Tech. “I wanted to put it all together, so I started a

magazine.” The first issue was published in April and includes original articles on Top 5 Upcoming Smartphones of 2014 and the Top 10 Budget Tablets of 2013. It’s all information Caden takes seriously as he builds his own cache of electronics to meet his various needs and interests. Caden takes a tablet to school, a tool he earned with various income-generating projects, and works on his magazine in his down time. “If I finish an assignment, instead of reading, I’d rather just work on my magazine on my iPad,” he says. Caden began publishing online at the Creepy Pastas website, a gathering of scary paranormal stories and short horror microfiction. “All the kids would come over, read them, and scare the pants off each other,” says his mom, Jennifer Moniz.4 continued on page 64

june 2014 ENJOY | 63


From Creepy Pastas, Caden moved on to become a featured correspondent at Gammyskinny.com, a site he found after doing a Google search for rants about Candy Crush Saga, which seemed to be overwhelming Facebook and other sites. He took delight in the rant he found at Gameskinny and searched the site more deeply, noticing a call for contributions. Caden’s work has tightened up at Gameskinny, since he works with editors who guide him. As a result, he’s often featured on the site’s home page. He’s not working for free, either: Caden takes payment in video games. He recently penned a guide to the new Call of Duty and received a copy of the game for his efforts. As anyone knows, electronics aren’t cheap. Caden figured out pretty quickly that he’d need to find some of his own funding to support his interests. He has set up a DJ business and has worked school dances and private functions. He’ll also make minor repairs to smart phones and computers. His teachers are some of his best customers. “He has all these fancy gadgets,” says Jennifer, “but he earns those.” An iTunes search for electronic music to fuel his DJ business turned up a new passion for Caden, and another way to earn money. Once he discovered the artist Savant, he says, he was hooked. He began playing around to create his own electronic music and now has an online persona, Omniplexxx. He is working on his second EP. His first, “Only You,” is available for sale at bandcamp.com “It’s pretty fun to just start making a pattern,” he says, playing with the three different forms of software he uses to create music. “It’s a lot of fun and it’s not just sitting here playing video games all the time.” Caden’s parents, Jennifer and Gary, say they noticed early on that

their eldest had a propensity towards the intellectual and electronic. Though he followed in his dad’s footsteps for a few years in early elementary school by playing football with the Junior Spartans, ultimately his interests were elsewhere. While Jennifer says his knowledge of computers and technology is far beyond that of she and her husband, it’s an interest they fully support and encourage. “He gets it,” she says. “It’s his passion.” While Gary often has to work weekends at the Walmart Distribution Center, Jennifer tries to augment Caden’s learning with outings. They recently visited the Computer History Museum in Mountain View and toured the Google campus, a place Caden one day hopes to work. Though he aspires to work at Google, he says he’d be happy at Apple, too, where a much-admired relative works, one who is teaching Caden computer code. “I follow Apple more as a cult following for my cousin, Luke,” he says. With a thoughtful pause in consideration of his future, he reiterates his goals. “Google or Apple, both,” he says. “It would be hard to decide if I had to choose. And I’m sure they’ll still be around by the time I’m an adult.” With another pause, he adds, “But they’ll probably have robots by then.” • www.viptechmag.blogspot.com www.omniplexxx.bandcamp.com

summer beauty basics ti p s to s t r e a m l i n e yo u r b e a u t y r o u ti n e Summer is about paring down and simplifying. After all, it’s simply too hot for blowouts, or a full face of foundation and heavy eye makeup that runs down your face by 3 pm. And who needs heavy moisturizers when it’s 100 degrees outside? Believe it or not, you can skip some of your usual steps, eliminate a few products and still look gorgeous. With so many products on the shelves today, it’s hard to figure out what you really need. And although many products are beneficial and keep you looking flawless, for summer, it’s freeing to keep it to a minimum.

Stick to the essentials: Rather than having a counter overflowing with countless products, keep things simple. Find one cleanser that removes dirt, oil, makeup and mascara and leaves your skin feeling clean and refreshed. That way you don’t have to worry about wasting time using three products when you can just use one. You’ll also want to use one great moisturizer with an SPF of at least 30 to round out your routine.

Find a great bronzer powder, gel or tint and apply it all over your face lightly, and then heavier on cheeks and eyelids. This is a great substitute for foundation, eye shadow and blush. The hint of sun-kissed color will also brighten up your complexion on days when you didn’t get enough sleep. And who doesn’t need that?

Mascara is a makeup bag mainstay for good reason. With a simple swipe, your eyes are instantly opened up. There is no substitute for a great tube of lengthening and darkening mascara. Simply apply heavier and close to the lash base and you won’t even need an eye liner, or try smudging along the lash line with the tip of the wand for added drama. 4 continued on page 68 june 2014 ENJOY | 67

SHAS TALAN D C H I L D REN ' S F I LM FES T I VAL Curtains will rise this month on a brand-new Redding film festival, but these movie stars are more animated than those that North State audiences have seen before: A fox who loves the fall, a mouse dentist, some mischievous monsters. That’s because the audience also looks different than you’ll find at other film festivals - specifically, smaller and cuter. Young children will be the honored guests at the first-ever Shastaland Children’s Film Festival, which will feature about 20 short films based on classic and contemporary picture books.

To honor youngsters’ attention spans, the free festival on June 28 will offer three showtimes, each an hour long. Every hour will feature different films, so families can stay at the David Marr Theater for the whole afternoon if they’d like, says organizer Tom Ramont. The father of two young boys, Ramont earned a bachelor’s degree in film and has always enjoyed children’s short films. He played with the idea of making educational films, and later he and his wife,4 continued on page 72 june 2014 ENJOY | 71

Charlene, dreamed of opening their own theater. “Then the idea came about - why can’t we put together a collection of films and kind of test it out?” Ramont says. This year, Ramont is using about 20 films from Weston Woods Studios, an innovator in translating picture books into audiovisual media. “This is the company that started that iconographic style of panning of camera over the art, known as the Ken Burns effect. I kind of fell in love with their work,” Ramont says. “Some are very basically animated, others are more elaborate. They take children’s books and create films as close to the books as possible.” Among the films are adaptations of the classic “Where the Wild Things Are,” the first Weston Woods film that Ramont remembers seeing. “That film is the seed to this entire idea,” he says. “It’s very arty and has a cool soundtrack and narrator.” Other films include “A Snowy Day,” “Harold and the Purple Crayon,” “And Then It’s Spring,” “Fletcher and the Falling Leaves” and “Doctor De Soto,” a tale of a mouse dentist. The first credits haven’t rolled yet, but Ramont’s vision goes well beyond this year - next year, he plans to make it a “true film festival,” taking submissions of high-quality, family friendly films from around the world, and having them juried by local arts advocates, educators and parents. And after that? “Because this is a children’s film festival, we’re going to get to a point where there’s a children’s jury,” Ramont says. “I want to develop an after-school class and teach kids how to look critically at films. While they’re doing that, they’ll get to choose what’s in the festival and who wins. We want to break them away from choosing something just

because they like it, but instead, choosing something that someone else might like.” This experience will help kids become more media literate, Ramont says. “When they learn to parse film and understand its meaning, that will develop in them a natural ability to look at all kinds of media and figure out, what is that trying to get me to do or buy? It will make them more savvy in media consumption,” he says. Children’s film festivals are staged throughout the country, but the Ramonts grew weary of having to leave town to find one for their sons, Dylan, 8 and Evan, 4. “We have people here who want this,” Ramont says. “We’re bringing things here so we don’t have to leave. We can attend with the people we know. It will be a nice summer day of watching films.” The festival is sponsored by Shasta County Office of Education, First 5 Shasta and Shasta Early Literacy Partnership. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Admission is free, but reservations are necessary. Tickets can be obtained at the film festival’s website (see below). • Saturday, June 28 Showtimes: 1-2 pm, 2:30-3:30 pm, 4-5 pm David Marr Theater (inside University Preparatory School) Free, but reservations necessary: Go to www.shastaland.org

I have helped many people over the years with food allergies and celiac disease (some in my own family). I began to realize the need for a great tasting high quality line of food that was easy for anyone to prepare. With that and a whole lot of help and support from my wonderful husband

Huck, Amazing Foods For Life was created. “Success to me is, that every person affected by gluten and food allergies can live a better, healthier life.”

Perfect 10 T h e t e n t h a n n i v e r s a r y o f t h e s u n di a l b r id g e On any given day at the Sundial Bridge, couples stroll hand in hand. Children scamper to the plaza below to skip rocks into the Sacramento River. Residents show off the area to out-of-town guests. Visitors converse in foreign languages. Television commercials use it as a backdrop. With the constant buzz of energy, it may be difficult to recall a time when this iconic structure wasn’t there. But around the turn of the millennium, the idea belonged to beyond-the-moon dreamers, and it drew more than a little skepticism from the community that now adores it. When the bridge opened on July 4, 2004, it linked the north and south campuses of Turtle Bay Exploration Park, and provided another entrance to the Sacramento River Trail system. Yet it also became a cultural hub that has been the backdrop for weddings, parties and family photos. Its image on the cover of a physics textbook hails its wind and gravity resistance. It’s a community gathering space for celebrations, memorials and observances. The 700-foot-long Sundial Bridge designed by world renowned

Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava celebrates creativity and ingenuity, as it was designed to cross the water without touching it to avoid spawning salmon. Eighteen 40-foot deck sections and 25 truckloads of pylon pieces were transported from Washington to Turtle Bay, and another 14 large pieces were shipped by barge to Vallejo and then trucked to Redding. Its deck is made of translucent structural glass from Quebec, and the 200 tons of glass and granite are supported by 4,300 feet of cable. The Sundial’s long and winding road to Redding began after “we decided to do something more significant than a functional bridge to get people from Point A to Point B,” says John Mancasola, vice president of the private nonprofit McConnell Foundation, which funded most of the $23 million price tag. “There was a hope that the bridge would help reshape Redding’s identity and create a gathering place that had been lost when the core of Redding’s business moved east of town when the freeway came through.” They’d also hoped that it would serve as a catalyst for appreciating the river that ran beneath it. “We were guilty of turning our backs4 continued on page 76 june 2014 ENJOY | 75

There was a hope that the bridge would help reshape Redding’s identity and create a gathering place that had been lost… to the river,” says Mancasola, a Redding native. “It’s such an amazing thing we have that flows through this community.” After a task force deadlocked on which of two firms to use to design the bridge, Mancasola stumbled upon one of Calatrava’s design books. He and Terry Hanson from the City of Redding called Calatrava’s Zurich office to gauge his interest — and the pair were as surprised as Calatrava when they ended up ringing his home phone. “I think he was intrigued by the idea that these people would call him cold from halfway around the world because of interest in his work,” Mancasola says. So Calatrava came to Shasta County, and Hanson and Mancasola in turn traveled to Europe to check out his projects and meet with his design team. Of the three designs that Calatrava presented, the Redding City Council, Turtle Bay staff and attendees at a public forum preferred the one that Calatrava also liked best. The project carried its share of skepticism. “Our marketing director put yellow sticky notes on the window of his office door — every day that went by without a negative letter to the editor about the bridge, he’d write a number on a sticky note,” says Bev Stupek, development

officer for Turtle Bay. “The most we ever got was three days.” Even proponents weren’t 100 percent convinced. “When Mike Warren was city manager, I’d hear him speak to people about the bridge that was under construction,” Stupek says. “The words were positive, but at the end of the sentence, I felt like there was a bit of an unsaid question mark. In 2004, I asked if I could give him a tour. I had him close his eyes, and I asked him what he saw when I said Sydney, Australia. St. Louis, Missouri. Seattle, Washington. San Francisco, California. What image comes to your mind? Every single time, it was the architectural icon that defined that place. It gave those places a sense of self. And heaven knows, far Northern California didn’t have one of those.” Today, the Sundial Bridge is a tourist attraction, a pleasant spot for a walk and the image in many companies’ logos. “It speaks to how it has meaning and connection with people,” Mancasola says. “From the McConnell Foundation’s perspective, that was our hope and dream.” And it’s built name recognition well beyond the North State. Just a few years after the bridge was built, the Stupeks were on a cruise4 continued on page 78

My name is Marie Antoinette Vidosola Schall and I immigrated to America from Quilpue, Chile at a very young age. The love and support I have received from my parents and siblings has taught me to never give up on my education and my dreams. Deciding to go to Shasta College was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life. Socially, Shasta gave me the “full college experience.” I was able to join clubs and organizations that helped me give back to others and allowed me to grow as a person. Financially, attending a fouryear University straight after high school would have been impossible for me. Shasta College provided me with the education, classes, and skills I needed to pursue the higher education and career pathway I’ve set for myself without the terrible burden of financial debt so many students find themselves faced with today. I was just accepted at San Jose State University, where I will pursue my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in psychology. My ultimate goal is to become a psychologist dedicated to helping troubled children and teens. I will be the first in my family to go to a university and when I receive my degree all of the sacrifices my parents have made will be worth it in their eyes to see me graduate. Opportunities come and go, but the one I will always choose is education.

from Florida, and every person who asked them their hometown knew about the Sundial Bridge. “We were dumbstruck by the impact and the power that one architectural and artistic icon had,” Stupek says. “What we have been able to achieve, build and dream in a community of our size and rural nature without massive industry and big business dollars is phenomenal. It’s nothing short of magical. It makes Redding’s special spirit more visible to the world at large.” Mancasola recently bumped into a vocal opponent of the bridge, who told him, “I eat crow every time I walk across it.” But Mancasola never took offense when someone said they didn’t like it. “People are entitled to their opinions about it. Any time you have something that significant in the community, something would be wrong if it was universally accepted — especially before it’s there. I’m glad he likes the bridge now.” And he can’t help smiling when he walks around the north side of the bridge. “One of my most memorable moments when the bridge was opening was when Calatrava and I came through the arboretum and headed down underneath. He stopped and grabbed my arm and said, ‘Look at this!’ On the backside of that pylon, there’s a grid, and when light comes up from that grid, it creates a pattern on the lower

part of the pylon that replicates how the bunch grasses are down there. He loved that, and he hadn’t planned that. It was an unexpected surprise that just thrilled him. He’s a renaissance man with a genuine, childlike exuberance for what he does.” Calatrava won’t be at Celebrate 10, as he is the designer of the new World Trade Center Transportation Hub and is otherwise obligated. But Stupek hopes for an impressive turnout from everyone else to celebrate this “incredible work of art and magnificent gift to our community,” she says. “I’m looking forward to a celebration with unanimity. I feel as if even if it’s not your favorite kind of art, one would be hard pressed to argue its impact on our community and our region. It’s given us that civic identity and civic pride, not just within our city limits, but it put us on the map globally. “Not a day goes by that we don’t hear languages from around the globe ­— on a bridge where I work in Redding, California,” Stupek says. “That did not happen 12 years ago. How can we be anything but proud?” And all that considered, its time to celebrate with a communitywide party and you’re invited: Two weeks of excitement, from gravitydefying dance performances to the flashiest of fireworks, will honor the Sundial Bridge’s 10th birthday. 4 continued on page 80

“We really need to celebrate this in a special way,” says Kim Niemer, community services director for the City of Redding. “It has brought a ton of positive publicity and put us on the map, both nationally and internationally. It’s become a great gathering place for our community.” Activities begin June 21, the summer solstice — the one day of the year when the sundial is perfectly accurate — and wrap up July 4 with the annual fireworks spectacular. The highlight is bound to be the Bandaloop dance company, which will turn the entirety of the bridge into its vertical stage. A recent rehearsal left Niemer spellbound. “It’s so strange to actually see people up there,” she says. “When they came out and were straddling the pylon, it was crazy. We think the Bandaloop group on the Sundial Bridge should be on ‘Good Morning America’ as the cool summer solstice shot of the year.” The Sundial Splash community float down the Sacramento River and a music festival at the Redding Civic Auditorium are activities that “we hope we’re incubating this year, and that they’d become annual events,” Niemer says. An evening of food, music and fun is planned on the Redding Civic Auditorium’s front lawn, and Redding Catalyst’s Brews by the Bridge 80 | Enjoy June 2014

event will showcase 10 local breweries. Special Turtle Bay activities and exhibits, nightly concerts at the riverfront amphitheater, docent-led bridge tours, a sidewalk chalk art contest, fly fishing demonstrations, flash mob dance performances and more are planned. Turtle Bay will unveil new Sundial Bridge exhibits in the Museum and at the Sundial Bridge Plaza. The celebration is a collaboration among the City of Redding, The McConnell Foundation, Redding Civic Auditorium, Shasta County Arts Council, Turtle Bay Exploration Park and VisitRedding.com. “For those two weeks, come to the bridge — there will be something going on,” Niemer says. “Let’s go hang out with each other, get to know your neighbors, breathe and enjoy this beautiful community we live in. It’s time for a good party in this town. Let’s be happy together and enjoy this bridge and our river and each other, and celebrate community.” • Kerri Regan grew up in the North State and earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism from San Francisco State University.

T R I N I T Y A L P S C H A M B E R M U S I C F E S T I VA L Like many great things, The Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival started with a simple idea. Ellen McGehee, an accomplished violinist living in the remote mountains of Hyampom, hosted her musical cohort Ian Scarfe. He was enjoying the outdoors and work on McGehee’s farm, and she welcomed the chance to play music in the beauty of Trinity County. The inspiration started there. “The original idea was to have some friends come up and relax and play music and treat the community to a concert or two and take it from there,” says McGehee. Four years later, the Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival is thriving, providing a program that hosts professional musicians and presents an annual series of free concerts throughout Trinity County. The Chamber Music Festival has widened its scope to include shows in other regions of the state and country, and also hosts professional musical ensembles in sponsored residencies during the winter, offering a musical retreat in the mountains that includes a program of educational outreach and community performances. “The community has been tremendous and without them it wouldn’t have taken off the way it has,” says Scarfe. “There have been so many gestures of support.” The Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival has a symbiotic link to the community: Its musicians have the opportunity to perform music within the spectacular beauty and uniqueness of Trinity County, and Trinity County gets the cultural experience of professional caliber musicians performing for free. “It’s a benefit to have classical music in Trinity County,” McGehee enthuses. “There’s a lot of real appreciators there, and its really rewarding to perform music for them. The musicians are impressed with the quality of the audience and their level of engagement.” The Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival focuses much of its efforts on providing musical access to local children, offering free shows at multiple schools, and also partnering with local organizations and businesses to provide music programs for children. 82 | Enjoy June 2014

“For a lot of schools, there isn’t a lot of money left for music,” says McGehee, “and so schools here don’t have the strongest music programs and there’s a lack of resources. So it’s great to expose kids to music and show them music is a possibility. Some of them might not even realize that’s an option. “Music is one of those creative, artistic things important to a wellrounded education,” explains Scarfe, “especifically when kids have an opportunity to interact and hear professionals play. They get the chance to see that real, normal people can attain this kind of career and mastery of music, and they also get exposure to world class music and musicians. It’s worth an enormous amount to a child’s education.” The Chamber Music Festival also provides a chance for adults to enjoy music. The combination of rural audience and venue with professional classical musicians makes for an interesting cultural blend. The musicians host their performances in an informal atmosphere, which lends to the unusual mix of culture already happening. “I think it helps to demystify classical music,” Scarfe says. “I think classical music is just music and music is great. Classical music has a very formal reputation — people associate it with tuxedos, and pomp and circumstance, but the reality is that it is just people playing music.” The end result is a more intimate performance where musicians talk to the audience directly about the music they’re listening to, helping to provide context and musical history. “We focus on chamber music,” explains Scarfe, “because it was written for a more intimate setting and smaller venues. Our concerts give audiences the opportunity to see us up close and ask questions and get to know us.” • www.trinityalpscmf.org

SNA SHO P T

Billy +Patrick

by Billy Pilgrim Every Saturday in the spring at the beautiful Shasta Dam Area Little League fields, baseball magic happens for boys and girls in the Challenger Division of Little League. For 25 years, the Challenger League has provided opportunities for physically and developmentally challenged boys and girls, ages 5 through 18. I have coached youth sports for most of my adult life, but I had never been exposed to this wonderful experience until our friends invited us to watch their son play. I was amazed! Kids in wheelchairs, blind kids, kids with developmental disabilities and obvious physical limitations experience the joy of the baseball diamond: the smell of the grass and the earth, the fresh air, and the cheers and applause that go with any baseball game. Everyone gets a shirt and cap, wears a mitt and swings a bat. Kids from traditional Little League teams buddy up with individual kids to help them field, bat and move around the bases. Sometimes the coach pitches, and sometimes the kids hit off of a tee. Everyone gets on base and scores at home plate, to the cheers of teammates, parents and volunteers. Approximately 100 kids participate in these games every Saturday, and in front of crowds that are sometimes larger than a traditional Little League game. And if our schedule allows it, there is no place we’d rather be. Challengers baseball teaches kids that they are all winners and can be part of a team. And it teaches their Little League buddies that anyone can play ball, and to be grateful for everything. It is so sweet to watch these kids work with one another! Challengers baseball in the City of Shasta Lake would not be possible without the great number of volunteers, parents and sponsors who believe in this program. Special thanks goes out to John

Barry and Carol Matheny for all of their efforts. They have been with the program since the beginning. The season ends in late May with the Challengers Jamboree.It’s a great day of celebrating another wonderful season. Games are played, awards are given out, and the Redding Rodeo Association barbecues for everyone. Come out and be a part of this wonderful experience some Saturday morning in the spring and root on our buddies Patrick and Tanner and their teammates. Challengers baseball is the coolest thing ever.

ENJOY: When and how did you start roasting coffee? SAM: My dad does regular missions trips to Guatemala, and one year on a whim, he brought back a bunch of green coffee beans. It was the first time we’d ever seen coffee beans that were not roasted. We just figured we’d roast them like you roast anything else, in the oven. We put the beans out on a cookie sheet, cranked the oven up and started roasting them. Before we knew it, the whole house was completely smoked out. So our first attempt was unsuccessful. Then I hopped on the Internet and found out all you need is a hot air popcorn popper, and you can roast small batches of coffee. I bought one and roasted those beans up. It was a whole new adventure, learning how to do it well, and it awakened something that was a lot of fun for me. I made Christmas gifts for people out of the coffee beans, and it became a hobby for me. ENJOY: How did it turn from a hobby to a business? SAM: We moved out here to Redding from Washington, D.C., a little over two years ago, and I had a friend who had a much larger setup than I did for roasting coffee. I tagged along with him, and started roasting on a larger scale. After a few months of that, my friend decided he was going to take a job back in New York. He sold me the equipment and his one account. I saw the vision for fresh-roasted coffee in Redding and thought there would be a lot of businesses that would benefit from it and be excited about it. We officially bought the business on April 1, 2013. ENJOY: What do people love about your coffee? SAM: Everything we roast is organically grown. People are just loving the fact that Redding has a local coffee roaster that’s roasting organic coffee. They love the fact that it’s fresh. What we really focus on is single origins instead of blending. When you find a coffee from Guatemala or Ethiopia, a lot of people will blend them - but it kind of dumbs down the flavors a little bit. Each origin has a unique flavor to it. We find the best beans we can and let those origins be showcased, so people get a real different experience with each one. ENJOY: What is your business philosophy? SAM: Education, hospitality, quality and freshness. We are all about excellent coffee. We’re about freshness, so when we sell our coffee in stores, we want it to be off the shelves within 30 days of roasting. That’s a pretty tough standard to maintain, but we try really hard to maintain it. The other thing is hospitality. In the coffee market, if you’re a customer and don’t understand coffee like the

roaster does, you can walk away feeling a little out of place and that you don’t fit in. We always want you to feel super welcome and super invited, and we want to provide a real approachable atmosphere so you can really learn. I also feel like people should be able to get it at a reasonable price. I hate spending an arm and a leg on coffee. If you can get good coffee at a reasonable price, people will accept the invitation to the adventure more readily. ENJOY: What is your goal? SAM: We want to expand into our own facility. We’re still trying to feel out whether that looks like a coffee shop for us or something else. We’ve really been focusing on the roasting and we’re loving that aspect, but I can really see it morphing into something where we’ll create an organic momentum, of people grabbing a hold of the coffee and saying, ‘We want more of this.’ When supply warrants it, I’d like to be sourcing all of our own coffee, or at least progressively more and more of our coffee - visiting coffee plantations, working with the farmers, ensuring that we’re getting the most excellent product from start to finish. ENJOY: Where did your business name come from? SAM: When my friend offered me this business, I knew we wanted it, but we didn’t have the capital to buy it. We prayed about it, and ended up feeling like we were supposed to sell an international Scout, an old, retro, super cool vehicle. It was sitting in the garage, because we hadn’t had the money to get it out on the road. It sold in literally minutes for more than I expected. We ended up naming the business after the sacrificial car. Also, the scout is always at the forefront, checking out new territory, kind of on that cutting edge. That’s where we want to be. ENJOY: As a North State newcomer, what do you think so far? SAM: My stress level has dropped about a million percent. We just went full time last week - Redding has been so incredibly supportive of what we’re doing. We’re really appreciative and thankful to this county. It has really provided a solid foundation for our company. We wouldn’t be here without the support. I can’t even believe I actually make enough money to support my family off roasting coffee. It’s like a dream come true. • www.scoutcoffeeroasting.com

GIVING BACK

SERVICE ABOVE SELF “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

REDDING CHRISTIAN SCHOOL, ROTARY INTERACT CLUB provides local and international support through community projects. Interact clubs were founded in 1962, and the name of the club combines the words “international” and “action.” Today, nearly 13,000 clubs around the world have more than 300,000 members. Redding Christian School Interact club is sponsored by the Anderson Rotary Club, which supports the core values of Interact clubs: to foster a lifetime of service for young people between the ages of 12 and 18. Interact members grow friendships with local and overseas clubs and learn leadership skills through hard work and responsibility, while propagating human kindness and compassion. Each year, Interact clubs complete at least two community service projects: one which furthers international goodwill and the other a local goodwill effort. Over spring break, members of the Redding Christian School Interact club remodeled a children’s room at the House of Hope New Life Recovery program. “The women and children living at the House of Hope love their newly remodeled family room so much,” says vice president Natalie Verhoog. “They like having slumber parties in it.”

How you can help: Donate to Redding Christian School Interact Club at 21945 Old 44 Drive, Palo Cedro, CA 96073 or go to www.reddingchristian.com and click the “Support RCS” tab. The “donate” button will allow you to donate using a credit card. Or, you can join Anderson Rotary and become a community volunteer.
