birds of a feather


Thanksgiving is a time for community, sharing and gratitude. How a family celebrates the American holiday is as diverse as the many traditions associated with it. Some flit around the kitchen peeling, chopping and basting, while others roost in front of the flat screen, psyched to watch the NFL’s Thanksgiving foot ball marathon. As these folks marinate in the sweet and savory promise of a delightful meal, thousands of participants -- make that turkeys -- will flock to Diestelhorst Landing in Redding to celebrate good health, a good cause and good old-fashioned competition at Shasta Regional Medical Center’s Turkey Trot. This year marks the 27th anniversary of Redding’s long-standing Thanksgiving tradition. The much-anticipated race offers a chance for people of all ages and abilities to get out of the house and get a jump-start on the many calories they will consume over the course of the day. And it’s not just the participants who benefit from the race; local non-profits get a slice of the fundraising proceeds.

“Every year we rotate through the non-profits,” says Karen Hoyt, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Shasta Regional Medical Center. To determine distribution of funds, Hoyt looks at the needs of the community. The 2012 Turkey Trot will benefit Good News Rescue Mission, Redding Recreation, Girls on the Run and S.W.E.A.T Running Club. “We expect to donate more than $45,000 this year,” says Hoyt, “with the lion’s share of the proceeds going to Good News Rescue Mission.” On the fourth Thursday morning of this month, the frenetic energy will be as tangible as the brisk autumn air that fills trotters’ nostrils as they stretch and warm up, preparing for the event of their choice: the Diestelhorst Dash, the 6 Mile Run or the 2 Mile Fun Run/Walk. Opening ceremonies begin at 7:45 am, and by 8 am, children 8 and younger will toe-up to the starting line, eager to begin the first race of the day: the Diestelhorst Dash. As the gang of elbows and knees continued on page 16 November 2012 Enjoy 15

sprints to the finish, where a ribbon and special prize awaits each participant, more than 1,100 runners rev up their heart engines, anticipating the 6-mile race start signal. The 6-mile race is divided into 5-year increments: ages 10-14, 15-19, and so on. Participants younger than 10 will be placed in one category. Prizes -pies from Marie Callender’s -- are given to the top three runners in each category. “The pies are a fun tradition,” says Hoyt. “This year we’re offering pies or gift certificates.” To add to their sweet winnings, the overall three quickest men and women will each receive a custom running shirt from Fleet Feet. An event for the entire family, the 2 Mile Fun Run/ Walk is just what its name implies: a go-at-yourown-pace, carefree event. “We anticipate more than 2,300 participants this year,” says Hoyt. “The crowd is massive. We have people who run it and families who just want to enjoy it.” Ribbons are given to all participants while supplies last. The Turkey Trot merriment wouldn’t be possible without a generous helping of support from local sponsors like Redding Bank of Commerce, Win-River Casino and Simpson University. As you think about what this Thanksgiving might look like for you and your family, imagine how good it would feel to join the North State’s perky turkeys for a morning of fellowship, festivities and fun -- all gifts to be grateful for. •

A Joyful Song T H E M U S I C A L L I F E O F A D R I E N N E J A CO B Y A joyful song courses through Adrienne Jacoby’s soul, and she’s imprinted it into the hearts of the tens of thousands of students who have had the privilege of sitting in front of her piano. The retired Parsons Junior High School music teacher created the North State’s first show choir and inspired the creation of several more, and a number of her former students are professional musicians today. But even those who never sang a note on stage after graduating from Parsons walked away with a lifelong appreciation of the performing arts. “I love going through the checkout line at the grocery store and hearing, “Mrs. Jacoby, remember me? I was in your fourth-grade choir. You really taught me to love music, and now my daughter is in college studying music.’ You can’t buy that.” The soundtrack of Adrienne’s life began in Southern California. Her father, born in 1900, quit school in sixth grade and made a living at a career in Caltrans that would require an engineering degree today. Her mother was a schoolteacher, and her two older brothers are World War II vets. “I had big eyes about my brothers in uniform,” she says. She met the late Bill Jacoby when she was 23, and they spent their first date watching jazz duo Jackie and Roy - and Jackie Cain, a strong influence on Jacoby’s singing style, remains her favorite singer today. They wed in 1962, and moved to Paradise on their honeymoon (“doesn’t everybody?” she quips), teaching music by day and performing by night. They had two children - Jayson and J’Anna, whose name is an abbreviated version of Johanna, “handmade of God.” Paintings of her children as doe-eyed toddlers, violins perched beneath their chins,

still hang above Adrienne’s piano. The kids regularly performed with their folks, with Jayson on bass, J’Anna and Bill on violin and Adrienne on accordion. “We played everything in A, D and G chords, because Jay had to play open strings – he couldn’t reach to play anything else,” Adrienne says. When Bill accepted a job teaching music in the Redding Elementary School District, the clan commuted from Paradise to Redding every weekday. “Early in the morning, we’d put the kids in the van in their sleeping bags,” says Adrienne, 75. “In Red Bluff or Cottonwood, we’d wake them up, give them their cereal boxes and orange juice, and we’d stop at a rest stop to brush our teeth.” After they dropped the kids off at Sycamore School, Bill began his rounds of the district’s campuses, with Adrienne as his assistant. “I did my student teaching for six weeks in second grade in Illinois, and it did nothing to prepare me for junior high,” Adrienne says. “But with Bill, I learned about the flow of a show, how putting kids in uniforms early gives them an esprit de corps... he was one of the best musicians and teachers I’ve ever known.” The day the Jacobys signed escrow papers in Redding, Adrienne declared that she was going to stay home with the kids - and that very day, she got a call from Parsons Junior High School, offering her a job as the choir and guitar teacher (she neither played nor taught guitar). The job also included teaching the after-school chamber choir. “But good teachers teach from their strengths and interests,” Adrienne says. “I was really interested in jazz.” So in 1976, while performing at the Reno Jazz Festival, she saw continued on page 20

her first show choir. Watching Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas was “like an epiphany,” she says. “That’s what I wanted to do.” Knowing that people had to see it to fully embrace the idea, she loaded up her motor home with students and parents the following year for some show-and-tell. “Going over, they were singing ‘Saturday Night Fever.’ Coming back, they were singing jazz songs. There’s nothing like experiential education.” And so began Parsons Jazz Chorale, later renamed Music in Motion, where students in sequined costumes sang and danced to live music provided by local musicians (they use recorded tracks today). Parsons graduates who wanted to continue performing had to go to Shasta High back then. Inspired by parents, Adrienne arranged for Bishop Gorman High School’s show choir to perform in Redding. Director Ray Ashton fell in love with Shasta County, landed a job at Enterprise High School and founded Enterprise Starship. His handpicked successor was Dan Neece, an award-winning educator who will retire this year. Music in Motion also inspired the creation of Kids Unlimited, as founder Dawn Hess sought to offer a performing arts experience to keep young artists engaged over the summer. Jacoby’s music program evolved throughout the years at Parsons, adding specialized choirs, more technical dance numbers and flashier costumes. What never changed was the thrill of watching each show evolve. “To see your vision come to life, and kids improve upon your vision, must be like what Steven Spielberg sees when he watches one of his movies. It’s so personal,” she says. When it came time to retire after 26 years, Adrienne wanted to place her beloved program in the perfect hands. Hillary Hess, a Music in Motion alum, took the baton in 2001, and Adrienne began spending much of her newfound free time traversing the northern hemisphere. 20 Enjoy November 2012

One of her favorite travel destinations is Las Vegas, where she watches daughter J’Anna light up the stage with Rod Stewart. The Jacoby kids were required to practice music daily until they were 16. “J’Anna said, ‘I can’t wait until I’m 16. I’m going to make a bonfire out of my fiddle and roast marshmallows with it,’” Adrienne says. When she was 14, however, she won the National Junior Fiddle Championship and was the first woman to win Nashville’s Grand Master Fiddle Championship. The same year, she landed a two-week stint playing with Tony Bennett. She’s been touring with Stewart for 13 years. Says Adrienne: “When I watch her in a show, I tell people, ‘I’m so glad I made her practice.’” Adrienne’s son, Jayson, retired from the Navy and lives in Virginia with his wife and two sons, Jesse, 20, and Kenneth, 13. In addition to the two children she raised, about 25,000 children passed through her classrooms at Parsons. One of them is Megan Lynch Chowning, part of the Pam Tillis Trio. “Certainly she taught me how to sing, and dance, and arrange songs for multiple voices, and a million other things that I use every single day of my professional life,” Chowning says. “I was one of those kids who didn’t have a very good home life a lot of the time ... and every day when I came home from school, I went straight for the piano and opened the jazz music books on the music stand. Adrienne Jacoby and her love for music got me through that period of my life and set me on the course that became the rich life I have now.” Fellow Parsons alum Tod Fitzpatrick has performed with top philharmonics and operas all over the country. Now a professor at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, Fitzpatrick invited Adrienne “one of my most influential musical mentors” - to speak to his music education majors “in hopes that her recipe for quality teaching could be passed on to the next generation of young teachers.” “I’ll never know how she managed to corral so many teenagers into such a fine performing ensemble,” Fitzpatrick says. “Her energy was seemingly unending ... what a treasure she is to our community.” Today, she plays in a couple of local bands, sings for special occasions, teaches piano and voice lessons, leads the Cottonwood Creek Charter School Choir and is involved with the North State Symphony. She’s an addictive reader and budding writer, and her tiny television is eclipsed by neatly organized bins of music CDs. Favorite modern musician? Diana Krall. Favorite songs? “What Matters Most” by Allan and Marilyn Bergman and “What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life,” adding, “I never learned to perform it - it’s almost like it’s too precious.” She’s still an avid supporter of youth performing arts groups. “There’s so much fertile ground in this town in the arts,” she says. “I love seeing a sixth grader who couldn’t match a pitch grow up into a high school senior who’s belting out a solo in Starship.” And she’ll continue piling into a car with her girlfriends, tapping into their joint “slush fund” to vacation everywhere from Italy to New Orleans to Boston. And every day, the unflagging optimist is grateful for the journey. With a smile and a sparkle in her eye, she says, “I was really worried that somebody would figure out I didn’t know how to teach.” •

juan mean burrito

B U R R I TO B A N D I TO C E L E B R AT E S 1 0 Y E A R S I N T H E N O R T H S TAT E Burrito Bandito was inspired by one of life’s basic needs: A perfect mix of meat, beans and veggies, accessorized with a smidge of sour cream, a drizzle of salsa and a whole lot of guacamole, tightly swaddled into a flour tortilla bigger than your face. “I knew there had to be a place you could get a burrito the way you wanted it,” says Paul LaBarbera of Redding. Burrito Bandito has evolved from one tiny shop into five Shasta County restaurants, where famished folks flock for burritos, tacos and burrito bowls prepared right before their eyes. Paul and Sheryl LaBarbera’s burrito empire began with a tiny lunch truck, which they’d converted from a trailer previously used in their whitewater rafting business. They originally used it as a concession stand at fairs and as a lunch truck in Burney. “It was like Thanksgiving every morning. We’d make three kinds of cookies, two or three kinds of burritos, sandwiches, salads, soups and a special every day,” says LaBarbera, who has worked in the restaurant industry since he was 13. “Our kids used to get out of school five minutes before the lunch bell — in the snow, half the time — and come help my wife with the lunch rush.” continued on page 26 November 2012 Enjoy 25

❝Between my wife, my employees and my kids, it’s hard to go wrong. I’m somewhere in the middle and I just got lucky.

When they moved down to Redding, they hired one employee and set up four tables at their Airport Road restaurant. “We were here from 6 am until 9 pm. She did the register, I made a mess, she cleaned up, I cooked,” he says. They were flabbergasted at the response. “It lasted 10 days and we had to buy more tables,” he says. Halloween marks Burrito Bandito’s 10-year anniversary, and many of their 65 employees have worked there for years, including Sheryl’s sister, who has been their bookkeeper since the beginning. The restaurants in Redding, Anderson, Red Bluff and Chico are managed by three of the LaBarberas’ four sons — Michael, Daniel and Matthew — and Luke Magnuson, who has been a family friend since he was a kindergartner in Burney. Their other son, John, is a mechanic. “I burnt him out at fairs pretty young,” LaBarbera says. For now, they don’t have their eyes on another location. “Right now, I’d like to get through this economy thing,” LaBarbera says. “It’s been two years since we’ve raised our prices, and the prices we pay for ingredients are going up, so the margin is more thin. Everybody’s facing that.” Even in the toughest times, though, the LaBarberas do what they can to help local and worldwide charitable causes. They’ve looked into starting a franchise, but “I think you’d lose what we’ve got,” he says. “I don’t want to be a Taco Bell.” Each restaurant has its own personality, but they carry many of the same traits: Whimsical wall decor in bright shades of turquoise and orange and purple, vibrant murals hand painted by Jeff Crank, and an impressive array of hot sauces available for purchase. The flagship restaurant has 163 varieties. “My wife about fell over and cried when I ordered $1,000 in hot sauce,” he says. “And yes, you really do have 26 Enjoy November 2012

to sign waivers for some of it.” These days, the LaBarberas, who met at Los Gatos High School, spend less time managing restaurants and more time playing with grandchildren. “We have five, but we need five more,” he says. Sitting in his Airport Road restaurant, LaBarbera said he’s proud of the loyal fans that the company has earned since he was branded “Juan Mean Burrito” a decade ago (when his gray hair was still jet black). Someone recently bragged about the place on a Eureka radio station, and “five times a month, people say, ‘My family is here from out of town and we’ve got to come here.’” The secret to his success? “Good employees are the biggest key. I’ve gotta brag on my employees,” LaBarbera says. “A smiling face and sincere heart goes a long way. The food’s good and the value is pretty good, too. “Between my wife, my employees and my kids, it’s hard to go wrong. I’m somewhere in the middle and I just got lucky.” • 2485 Notre Dame Blvd. • Chico • (530) 342-2584 3365 Placer Street • Redding • (530) 229-9068 8938 Airport Road • Redding • (530) 222-6640 2805 East Center Street • Anderson • (530) 378-1400 525 Adobe Road • Red Bluff • (530) 528-8226

M O U N T S H A S TA CO M P O S E R R O G E R E M E R S O N Roger Emerson’s smile disarms; his calm, relaxed demeanor belies a man who has jumped many times into the unknown of life. His steps resulted in a musical career different from the one dreamed in his youth. With 30 million copies of his choral music and 900 different titles in circulation, the twists of his musical journey satisfy. Thinking of his philosophy of life, his eyes sparkle as he quotes Eleanor Roosevelt: “Do something that scares you every day.” The composer and arranger grew up in Southern California bathed in music. “My mother was an arranger for live radio in the ‘40s and for Rhythms Productions, an educational music publisher, in the ‘50s and ‘60s,” Emerson says. “My mom had a vocal jazz quartet along the lines of the Hi-Lo’s, and my brother Richard had several jazz/pop ensembles including RCA recording artists The Match.” He began guitar lessons at 10, and at age 15, he joined his first rock band, playing bass. The band was popular, cutting demos for Mike Curb of the later Curb/Warner Records. Emerson played sessions on bass with Teddy Neely ( Jesus Christ Superstar) and the Association (Along Comes Mary).  However, a fully realized musical career seemed elusive.

Emerson’s best friend relocated to Northern California to attend College of the Siskiyous in Weed. He encouraged Emerson to take a leap and try something different. Majoring in music, Emerson found the smaller school offered two teachers who recognized and mentored his talents. “It’s ironic,” Emerson says. “I grew up in LA and had to move to Siskiyou County to have a career in music.” Graduating from Southern Oregon University, the door opened in Mount Shasta and he took his talents into the classroom. “I taught band, choir and general music to grades K–8. It was during this time that I decided to try out my songwriting skills on my choir,” Emerson says. “By 1980, I was writing or arranging 20 pieces per year and my royalties far exceeded my teaching income.” Emerson took a chance, stepped away from teaching and 35 years after his first publication, he continues to compose and arrange 20 to 30 pieces a year and is the most performed composer/arranger of popular choral music in the world. Music has brought Emerson to the corners of the earth. His works have filled the air of the White House, Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. He speaks at conferences and music seminars across the country. For 20 consecutive years, he continued on page 30

has received ASCAP’s Standard Award. In the end, he longs for his home in Mount Shasta. “I get to live and write music in the most beautiful place in the world.” The music man continues to do something that scares him every day. His recent endeavors include pushing himself to new places on jazz guitar and accepting performance opportunities. He is developing an all-digital magazine for middle school students where they can learn more about music and sing their choral parts, while their teachers use the media-friendly elements to enhance their classrooms. “There is always something to learn,” Emerson says. “The challenge is to stay fresh. We plateau and it takes an outside force to help us break through.” Part of music is an ethereal process for Emerson. “Where do melodies and ideas come from? Emerson asks. “I can only think of the words of a giant in my field, Weston Noble: ‘That which is indefinable is of the spirit.’” •

Our feet are pretty amazing. They’ve helped us forge new lands and walk on the moon. They tread aisles toward our futures and deliver us from danger. Strong but hardly passive, our feet torment us when we’ve overstood our welcome and balk at high-heeled abuse. Martha Washington called them “a miracle, upon which (our) whole weight rests.” Leonardo da Vinci referred to them as “a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.” Is there something more to our five-toed foundations than transportation and bipedal support? Reflexologists would say so. Reflexology is thought to affect internal glands, organs and muscles by applying pressure to key reflex points on our hands and feet. Russian physicians of the early 1900s theorized that influencing reflexes triggered brain-organ dynamics. In other words, by interrupting a body’s misguided instructions, a reflex therapist could feasibly prompt a body to behave better. Call it behavior modification for internal organs. Reflexology met resistance in 1970 when the U.S. Postal Service pushed for a cease-and-desist order against Mildred Carter’s book, “Helping Yourself with Foot Reflexology”, on the grounds that it promoted practicing medicine without a license. The publisher’s attorneys managed to successfully defend the case, and for the next quarter century, reflexology found traction with the growth of the alternative health movement.  continued on page 34 November 2012 Enjoy 33

Stephanie Farris, a Redding-based reflexologist, says reflexology is meant to complement western medicine. Her clients will attest to her specific podiatric touch in unstuffing nasal congestion and relieving specific back pains and headaches, though she points out, “I am not a doctor and I do not treat or diagnose.” Not a doctor, but versed in anatomy, physiology, pathology and massage. A reflexology foot chart reveals pressure points for lungs, liver and gall bladder as well as the pancreas, sigmoid colon, rectum and knee—a fairly diverse and comprehensive diagram of all things unseen within our bodies. Can it work? Will it work? Or is it too good to be true? “Everyone has their own beliefs about what methods work or don’t work for relief,” she says, “but even if a client only receives the relaxation benefit of reflexology, I see that in itself as positive and very healing. We all need human touch. It is so basic to wellness.” She adds that one of the most important aspects of reflexology is that it is painless. “Most of the time, (my clients) get so relaxed that they fall asleep.” Rita Mandina, a retired certified reflexologist turned client, says most people love having their feet rubbed. “Just imagine what someone with skilled hands, knowledge and the desire to bring you back into wellness can do.” She says her first feeling when Farris works on her feet is “Ahhhh!” Mandina seeks help for low back pain, sciatica problems and osteoarthritis in her neck, though reflexology has been shown to help with post-traumatic stress disorder, cancer care, hospice care, hemodialysis, seniors and expectant mothers. While certified reflexologists have hundreds of hours of study behind their services, do-it-yourselfers might dabble in reflexology with some reading and a good chart. A number of free and low-cost smart phone apps list ailments, symptoms and colorful image-driven instructions for relief. Work on yourself or practice on a partner. Touch is never wasted. Reflexology isn’t covered under most health insurance plans, so Farris strives to make her services affordable. “I believe everyone should have access to quality care,” she says. To her, reflexology is far more than a foot massage. Every set of feet Farris meets presents a new challenge where she can address ailments and use her naturally intuitive and nurturing demeanor to connect with clients. “It’s rewarding when I see the positive difference I am making in their overall health,” she says. It seems da Vinci was correct in lauding the engineering feat that is our feet. Perhaps we should show a bit more kindness to our five-toed pedestals. • Reflexions of the Sole (530) 945-8241

who will help me T H E L I T T L E R E D H E N I N C H I CO

In the old folk tale of The Little Red Hen, the eponymous heroine is given a grain of wheat and asks for help to make it grow. No one comes to her assistance and so she toils away on her own. It was a feeling that Teresa Wolk Hayes struggled with early on in the life of her now 22-year-old son, Alex, who was born with autism. “I was a registered nurse and my husband was a cardiologist and neither of us knew what it was,” she says of the diagnosis. “I’d go to conferences on autism and it didn’t look like what I had at home,” she says of the early years. While autism is now well known in mainstream culture, when Alex was born it was obscure and resources scare. And yet, like the Little Red Hen, Teresa toiled away. Alex was her own little grain of wheat to grow and, like any parent, she wanted what was best for him. She and her then-husband were fortunate enough to have the education and financial resources to secure the best interventions available for Alex’s development. And while these were profound, she found the support and camaraderie of other parents of autistic children just as valuable. “It’s a whole different type of parenting,” she says, unloading a laundry list of things that differentiate raising a child with autism, “the waiting, the repetition...” Meeting others in her situation lessened the isolation and soothed the pain of parenting a child so profoundly misunderstood by many. Teresa began facilitating strong, supportive bonds between parents by having them bring their children for swimming sessions at her home pool. The water proved miraculous for the kids and the socialization amongst parents a salve. It didn’t take long for her to realize, though, that not all parents had access to the same resources she was able to provide for Alex. So, like the Little Red Hen, she began digging in the dirt. Her green thumb led to plant sales that supported interventions for the children. The project caught the eye of staff at Far Northern Regional Center, who helped her develop the project into what has become The Little Red Hen Nursery in Chico. continued on page 38

Today the nursery is a thriving business that has won many Best of Chico awards and supplies the community with a range of plants and garden items while teaching job skills and offering income to people with developmental disabilities. No one is paid less than minimum wage. Little Red Hen is now a nonprofit organization and its business ventures include Little Red Hen Gifts, Little Red Hen Kids & Kitchen and the newly opened The Vintage Hen. The various ventures provide diverse opportunities for people to learn skills, because, as Teresa says, “Not everyone wants to be in the garden.” There are also a few micro-businesses supported by The Little Red Hen, including The Worm Guy (compost worms) and Floral Chicks, a small group of florists who have become skilled enough to design for weddings. These income-generating ventures ensure sustainability for the programs and interventions that serve the disabled community, including FLOCK (Feeling Like One Common Kid), Growing Together Teens and Autism LifeSpan. Noting budget woes of government programs that serve the disabled, Teresa says, “When all the services get cut, we don’t want all these kids running around without them.” And while sustainability, job skill development and socialization are all important, Teresa smiles widest when she says, “People step into our environment and see our strengths rather than our weaknesses.” A particular point of pride with everyone involved with the Little Red Hen is the Park and Garden that is being developed as a safe and appropriately stimulating environment for all, including the severely handicapped. It includes art installations created within the community and 13 planter beds that allow people to learn how to grow their own food. As The Little Red Hen network has expanded and research and interventions developed around autism, Teresa no longer feels like the proverbial little red hen. “It’s a village,” she says with a smile. “Everything is about community integration.” Her son Alex is now in his third year at Chico State University and is working with the teens and young children seeking support in the nurturing environment of The Little Red Hen’s various programs. While the story is far from over, if it were to become its own book, it may just be categorized as inspirational or true-life tale of triumph.

Rick Ramos was in his mid-40s when he enlisted in the Peace Corps, but he can trace his decision to serve back to Whiskeytown Lake in the early ’60s when, as a 9-year-old, he shook the hand of President John F. Kennedy. Kennedy had established the Peace Corps in 1961, two years before he spoke at the dedication of Whiskeytown Dam. As the child of “diehard Democrats,” Ramos was front and center and says the experience made a lasting impression. When the Simpson Paper mill closed in Anderson and Ramos’ job of 22 years went with it, he decided it was time to act on his long-held desire to volunteer with the Peace Corps. “I didn’t think they’d take us,” says his wife, Becky, who signed on for the adventure, but not without some misgivings. “I was terrified, but I went along with it because it was something really important to him. It ended up being the best thing I’ve ever done for me,” she says. “It changed my life. I learned if I could do what I did in Africa, I can do anything.” The Redding couple spent three years in Niger, living in a mud hut they built themselves and oftentimes sleeping outside on cots under mosquito nets when the tropical heat became too much. During their stint, they helped build and outfit the village’s first school. “It was a great experience and I would recommend it to anybody,” Rick Ramos says. The Ramoses returned to Redding in 2005 and resumed their stateside occupations—Rick went to work for Knauf Insulation and Becky returned to the classroom with the Enterprise School District—and they brought with them their spirit of volunteerism. That’s fairly typical, says Marilyn Thomas, a Redding woman who served in Afghanistan at age 22 and then signed up for a second mission, to Kenya, with her husband, Terry, in 2001. “It’s always been an ‘ask not what your country can do for you’ kind of mentality, and we still have it.” Thomas says the 40 or so returned Peace Corps volunteers in the Redding area have formed a group and at least two dozen remain active in it. They meet monthly on a casual basis to share experiences and discuss current events, and collectively they pitch in to scour Redding’s South City Park four times a year, work with the League of Women Voters on candidate forums and staff tables at continued on page 42 November 2012 Enjoy 41

high school career days. “The volunteer spirit is still there,” says Thomas, who joins other Peace Corps veterans in reading to preschoolers through an earlylearning project supported by The Women’s Fund of the Shasta Regional Community Foundation. “Almost everybody is involved in some volunteer activity.” She says that’s in keeping with the Peace Corps’ three goals: bring skills and help to other countries, show citizens of other countries what Americans are like, and bring that experience home and serve the community in ways that further the Peace Corps spirit. Daryl Harris, who spent two years in Liberia with his wife, Penny, says the Peace Corps training helps returned volunteers become involved in their communities. “We were taught to reserve judgment and that stuck with us. The need to listen, find out what people want and what they need.” “We came home and it changed our lives,” says Penny Harris. “We were both from the L.A. urban area, but after teaching for two years in a little village, we decided we wanted to continue that lifestyle so we got teaching jobs in French Gulch.” Daryl Harris, who earned a degree in business, says his Peace Corps work helping to train teachers in Liberia motivated him to go into teaching and he spent 36 years in elementary education. “I attribute that to my Peace Corps experience. It changed my life.” The life-changing theme comes up a lot when Peace Corps volunteers gather, says Terry Applegate, a Cottonwood resident who spent two years in the Solomon Islands with his wife, Mary. Taking a couple years out of one’s life to be immersed in another culture and working side by side with people from the other side of the globe has a tendency to alter one’s outlook on the world, Mary Applegate says. 42 Enjoy November 2012

“The Peace Corps has given me a sense of what problems another culture can experience and how long it takes to develop a better idea of how people think, and how we’re basically the same. We have so much more in common than where we differ, and that’s a world view based on experience and not idealism,” she adds. The Applegates were trained as teachers and sent to the Solomon Islands, which Terry Applegate describes as “one of those places if you tried to get there, you wouldn’t.” They quickly had to adapt to life on a small island (70 miles long and 25 miles wide) whose inhabitants used five distinct languages. Mary Applegate’s first foray into the Peace Corps was in 1966 as a recent college graduate when she went to Colombia as a community development volunteer. She met Terry in 1973, and 12 years later, the two of them embarked on their Solomon Island adventure. She has maintained contact with her fellow volunteers over the years, “and virtually everyone has a community service orientation. They have not given up and have not become cynical, or even if they are, they have not given up. They keep trying to help people live a better life in some way or another—through volunteering or the kind of job they have or their church. “They are still aware and committed to the betterment of the world.” •

Story: Jon Lewis


L I F E I S A S TA G E F O R TA M M Y J O N E S Tammy Jones can’t remember a time when she wasn’t singing, and even her earliest efforts were validated: “My teacher in third grade was devastated when I had chicken pox and couldn’t sing in the Christmas program,” Jones recalls with a laugh. “I was the only one who sang loud and knew all the words.” That may have been one of the last times Jones missed an opportunity to be on stage. Growing up in the small town of Castella and working her way through Castle Rock Elementary and Dunsmuir High School meant plenty of chances to shine. Dunsmuir High, with a student body of 200, was too small to stage musicals, but Jones says she was happy to be part of the choir, madrigals and student plays. There also was tennis and basketball. “I did it all. You didn’t have to be awesome; you just had to show up. I got to try everything,” Jones says. Far from feeling trapped in a small town, Jones says her upbringing in Castella was pretty idyllic. Her father, Regis, worked at the Kimberly Clark mill in Mount Shasta and her mother, Arden, served as Castella’s postmaster. continued on page 46 November 2012 Enjoy 45

As soon as she learned to swim, Jones was joining her two older sisters in riding innertubes through the rapids on the upper Sacramento River, which ran directly behind their home. The home had a decidedly country feel to it, thanks in part to her father, who cut and sold firewood to finance his hunting trips to Alaska. Jones says she grew up with one of dad’s prized trophies: a giant moose head mounted on the wall. The would-be Bullwinkle now graces the wall at Ammirati’s Bar in Castella. By her junior year, Jones had decided on a career as a dental hygienist and after graduating Dunsmuir High, she was off to Sacramento City College to learn her trade. License in hand, she returned to Redding and settled in with Dr. Larry Watts in 1981. The settled-in process was interrupted five years later when Jones enrolled at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland with plans on becoming a graphic designer. After 18 months, Jones says she realized that art school was not her cup of tea. Watts called to ask if Jones was interested in returning to the dentistry world “and I came back and I’ve been with him since October of 1988,” Jones says. “I see seven to eight patients a day, and some I’ve been seeing since 1981. I’m seeing some of their grandchildren now. It’s crazy. But I do love my job. I love cleaning teeth a lot. I know some of my patients so well it’s like visiting with old friends every day.” And, yes, she’s been known to sing to her patients. Jones discovered a new love in 1990 when a roommate, who had been volunteering at Riverfront Playhouse, mentioned the community theater company was going to stage the musical “Damn Yankees” and suggested that Jones audition for a role. Jones was cast as Gloria, the reporter, “and I was hooked, hooked, hooked,” she says in appropriately dramatic fashion. “I never had any formal training. I kind of just loved it and learned as I went.” The productions started to come fast and furious: “Dames at Sea, “Bad Day at Gopher’s Breath,” “Hay Fever,” “Jesus Christ Superstar,” four separate versions of “Nunsense,” “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” “Charlie’s Aunt,” “Peter Pan,” “A Christmas Story,” “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” “Rumors” and most recently, the drama “August: Osage County.” Of all the shows, Jones says her favorites are the pair of Shasta College productions directed by longtime instructor Robert Soffian. “Working with Robert is just great and I learned a lot. He’s a great director and a master at blocking,” says Jones, adding that she’s also received valuable advice from her friend John Truitt, an accomplished actor as well. In between plays and musicals, Jones found time to lend her voice to a quintet called 5 Women Who Sing. The acapella group was later reincarnated as Women Who Sing. The group snared a bit of North State history by being the first act to perform on the newly renovated Cascade Theatre stage during the “Hard Hat Party” fundraiser.

Jones has had a special connection with the Cascade since it reopened in 2004. She was a founding member of the Jefferson Repertory Theatre Company, the first group to stage professional productions at the Cascade. Although disbanded, the company served as a creative catalyst that led to some significant cultural contributions to the community, including James Santos’ Dance Project and the Westside Performing Arts Company. Plus, the Cascade is in downtown Redding, another of Jones’ loves. In addition to living downtown, Jones has long been active with Viva Downtown and was named Volunteer of the Year in 1999. There’s yet another love in Jones’ life: travel. Her adventures started with a post-graduation trip to Poland with her high school basketball team and now include a three-month visit to Austria doing mission work for her church in 1983; a month in Europe in 1991 to take in all the art she had studied about; and six separate trips to New York (each included two to three Broadway shows). And there’s one more love she’s adamant about: Lyle Lovett. “Lyle Lovett is my boyfriend,” Jones matter-of-factly says about the quirky Grammy-winning singer-songwriter and actor who lives in south Texas. Lovett was unavailable for comment. •

MARK MCABEE, ExTRAORDINARY VOCALIST Vocalist, guitar player, songwriter and DJ Mark McAbee of Clear Cut Entertainment is a multifaceted man. Whether singing solo, playing with his band at a local restaurant or spinning CDs at a wedding, McAbee fills a venue with music. The Clear Cut Band has been playing for more than 14 years throughout the North State. Music lovers come to hear originals and cover tunes from Jason Schroeder, Mike Basial, Brain Ottman and

McAbee. Schroeder, lead guitarist and owner of Schroeder Guitars, says, “Mark is a Wikipedia of song lyrics. He and I have always worked extremely well together because he knows almost every lyric ever sung on the radio, and I know most guitar parts. So we have the ability to play songs on the fly, and often do when asked at our shows.” McAbee enjoys playing cover tunes and recognizes that continued on page 50 November 2012 Enjoy 49

audiences like familiar songs. Schroeder says, “Mark keeps up with the pulse of modern music without being trendy and can also add a completely fresh take on classic rock music.” He is known for his strong and unique voice. “Mark is an insanely gifted singer with a tone that you really can’t learn,” explains Schroeder. “He has the ability to not only emulate the tones of great vocalists, he has a unique style and delivery that most singers could only dream of. The texture and tone of his voice sets him above the most talented singers.” McAbee grew up listening to The Wallflowers and The Smashing Pumpkins. “With those bands, the riffs are simple, and lyrics can be simple and complex,” explains McAbee. His originals have catchy melodies and straightforward lyrics. In his song, L.O.V.E., dedicated to his wife Rebecca, he writes, “You just might be my new addiction/ The cops showed up and gave us something to run from/I say I love you and you laugh in my face.” McAbee grew up in Happy Valley and attended West Valley High School in Cottonwood. He and Rebecca have two children, and they relish the local treasures like Castle Crags, Whiskeytown and Lake Shasta. A favorite gig for McAbee and Clear Cut Entertainment is playing at weddings. He is known as the one-stop music guy for brides: He sings and plays the guitar as the bride walks down the aisle, and at the beginning of many receptions. Bride Sierra Beyer says, “McAbee sang our special songs, and man can he sing! All of our guests, like literally all of them, were commenting on how wonderful he is.” Later during the reception, he dons his DJ hat. Some brides choose to hire the Clear Cut band to play at the reception. Though he is a fun and professional DJ, and as Schroeder tells it, “McAbee can kill a rock performance,” his vocal quality can be heard and felt when he plays acoustically. “He and I have played two-man acoustic shows from living rooms to the Cascade Theatre and it is, in my opinion, the best way to experience Mark’s voice,” Schroeder says. “There have been so many moments where even though I am playing right next to him, I have hair standing up on the back of my neck because of some emotion he touches when he sings a lyric in the way only he can.” •

“ He Has tHe ability to not only emulate tHe tones of great vocalists, He Has a unique style and delivery tHat most singers could only dream of. tHe texture and tone of His voice sets Him above tHe most talented singers.”

Kimberly Carlson, author of Out of the Shadows, gave her professional life to writing while reading Kate Chopin’s The Awakening on the lawn of her university flat in Nashville, Tennessee. Years later back in her hometown of Redding, she is still writing (still reading), usually while her son and daughter sleep.

a day of thanks T H A N K S G I V I N G H I S T O R Y, T R A D I T I O N S A N D T R I V I A

To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven. ~

The roots of this truly American holiday are attributed to a celebratory feast between the Wampanoag tribe and Pilgrims after their first successful corn harvest. Take a peek into the history of Thanksgiving, interesting facts and trivia associated with the holiday, a quiz to test your turkey

Giving thanks with a celebratory feast after a successful crop was practiced in both Native and European traditions in the 17th century. Although historically little is known about the threeday feast that took place in Plymouth in

and a list of organizations in the North State dedicated to sharing bounty with those in need. Enjoy!

between the Pilgrims and their Wampanoag allies, it has been used as the model for the Thanksgiving tradition we know today.

IQ 1621

Thanksgiving immediately evokes certain images and associations: roasted turkey with all the trimmings, reunions with family and friends, football and parades, and Pilgrims. Historians suggest that many of the dishes at the first feast were likely prepared using traditional Native American spices and cooking methods. The meal would not have included pies (a hallmark of contemporary celebrations) because the Pilgrims had no oven in which to bake them and the Mayflower’s sugar supply was short by the fall of 1621. The classic Thanksgiving menu of turkey, cranberries, pumpkin pie and root vegetables is based on the New England fall harvest. Over time, local cooks modified the menu according to food preference, but also due to limited food supplies. Many substitute regional seafood, meats and produce for the traditional Thanksgiving menu. Today’s Thanksgiving celebration is a blend of two earlier traditions: the New England custom of harvest celebrations (based on ancient English harvest festivals) and the Puritan Thanksgiving, a solemn religious observance combining prayer and feasting. continued on page 56

THANKSGIVING TRIVIA • According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the largest pumpkin pie ever baked weighed 2,020 pounds and measured more than 12 feet long. • The last Thursday of November was designated the Thanksgiving holiday by Abraham Lincoln. • Three towns in the United States take their name from the traditional Thanksgiving bird, including Turkey, Texas (pop. 465); Turkey Creek, Louisiana (pop. 363); and Turkey, North Carolina (pop. 270). • Approximately 90% of American homes eat turkey on Thanksgiving. • Minnesota is the top turkey-producing state in America. • June, not November, is National Turkey Lovers’ Month. • Six states—Minnesota, North Carolina, Arkansas, Missouri, Virginia and Indiana—account for nearly two-thirds of the turkeys raised in the United States annually. • Wisconsin, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oregon and Washington are the top cranberry growing states. continued on page 58



Any of these excellent craft brews work well to make a flavor-filled, robust gravy for this stew and dumpling recipe. Enriched with bacon, red onions, lots of veggies, and rosemary as the herb, cook this up for your family and you will agree that the addition of the craft brew makes all the difference.


2 lbs stew meat, cut into large chunks 3 T flour Olive oil 3 red onions, peeled, halved and roughly sliced 1/2 pound bacon, chopped, uncooked 3 stalks celery, chopped, with leaves if possible 1 small handful of rosemary leaves only, chopped 2 cloves garlic, peeled and roughly chopped 5 cup ale of choice: Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Mad River Steelhead DIPA or Lost Coast Downtown Brown 1 1/4 cup water or beef broth 2 parsnips, peeled and roughly chopped 1 winter squash, peeled and roughly chopped 2 carrots, peeled and roughly chopped 4 – 6 red potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped Sea salt and freshly ground pepper

DUMPLING INGREDIENTS: 1 3/4 cup self-rising flour 1/2 cup butter a good pinch of salt and pepper 2 sprigs of rosemary, leaves only, chopped PREPARATION Season the beef, toss in flour until well coated.

▶Heat up a frying pan until hot and add a little olive oil and fry the beef in 2 batches until nice and brown on all sides. Transfer the meat to a heavy pot, mixing in the flour that was left on the plate after coating it. ▶To the same frying pan, add a little olive oil. Once heated up, add the red onions and bacon. Cook until the onions are translucent and the bacon has some color. Add the celery, rosemary, and garlic. Deglaze with ¼ cup water or beef stock, stirring to loosen. Add all to the heavy pot and pour in your ale of choice and the remaining cup of water or beef stock. Stir. Add parsnips, winter squash, carrots and potatoes. Bring to the boil, replace the lid and reduce the heat. Allow to simmer while you make the dumplings. ▶Place the dumpling ingredients into a food processor and pulse until you have a breadcrumb consistency, then add just enough water to make a dough. You don’t want it to be too sticky. Divide dough into 2” – 3” sized dumplings and add to the pot, submerging them into the stew. Cover with lid and allow cooking to continue for 2 hours. ▶Check seasonings and adjust if you need and serve with a great green salad, some warm bread to soak up all the juices and of course, your favorite cold flagship ale to wash it down! Prep Time: 20 minutes; Cook Time: 2 ½ hrs; Total Time: 2 hrs, 50 minutes Yield: 6 to 8 servings

PLANES, TRAINS, AND AUTOMOBILES While it may seem like everyone is traveling on Thanksgiving Day, the American Automobile Association (AAA) finds the true number is closer to one sixth of the U.S. population. Last year, AAA estimated 42.5 million Americans drove more than 50 miles from home to celebrate the holiday, a four percent increase over the 40.9 million who traveled in 2010. If 2012 follows a similar pattern, about 44 million of us will be on the road again this month. Additionally, AAA estimates last year 3.4 million people traveled by air and another 900,000 by bus, train or other mode of transportation.

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade began in 1924 as a Christmas Parade consisting of store employees and professional entertainers in costume marching from Harlem to Macy’s flagship store on 34th Street in New York City. The first parade featured floats, bands and live animals from the Central Park Zoo, the latter replaced in 1927 by large animal-shaped balloons produced by the Goodyear Tire Company. Due to the need for rubber and helium in the war effort, the parade was suspended from 1942 to 1944, but then resumed and became a permanent fixture in the American consciousness surrounding Thanksgiving after it was featured in the 1947 film Miracle on 34th Street. In 1924, a quarter of a million spectators lined the parade route; today that number has grown to an estimated 2.5 million. Another 44 million watch the parade annually on television.

NFL FOOTBALL – THE THANKSGIVING CONNECTION In 1934, local radio executive G.A. Richards bought the Portsmouth (Ohio) Spartans and moved them to Detroit. In an attempt to build up the newly renamed Detroit Lions fan base, he scheduled a Thanksgiving Day game against the reigning world champions, the Chicago Bears. Hosted at the University of Detroit stadium, the game drew 26,000 spectators. Knowing the publicity potential of radio, Richards and NBC set up a network broadcast of the game to 94 stations across the country, marking the first national broadcast of Thanksgiving Day football. Since then, professional football has been a Thanksgiving Day tradition, with the Lions playing a game every Thanksgiving (except between 1939 and 1944). The Dallas Cowboys host a second game; since 2006, a third game, with no fixed opponents, has also been played annually.

F IF T E E N M IN UT E S WI T H K RC R T V ’S K EL L I SA A M JOB/TITLE: Morning News Anchor KRCR Newschannel 7 PERSONAL: Husband: Jerry Olenyn; children, Jeremy, 11, and Ryan, 7 TELL US HOW YOU GOT INTO THE NEWS BUSINESS: I started working as an intern at WLNS, the CBS affiliate in Lansing, Mich., then I worked part-time at the station while finishing my degree at Michigan State University. Upon graduation, I started working at WLNS full-time, and soon I was anchoring the weekend news. I was just out of college and covering major stories every day, from labor negotiations at General Motors to political debates at the Michigan state capital.

WHAT’S ONE THING YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT TV NEWS? All of my colleagues stay late, come in early and work weekends. It’s definitely not a 9-to-5 job. When you see video of breaking news from overnight, there’s a good chance someone got out of bed in the middle of the night to bring you the story. IF YOU COULD BE THE HOST OF ANY SHOW ON TELEVISION, TODAY OR IN HISTORY, WHAT WOULD IT BE? I would like to host a news magazine like 20/20 or Dateline. If I couldn’t host one of those, I would probably want to host “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?” I try to learn at least one new fact every day.

WHEN YOU WERE A LITTLE GIRL, WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GREW UP? It sounds cliché, but I always wanted to be a television reporter. As a little girl, I always watched the nightly news with my parents. Before long, I was writing for my local newspaper and working at our local radio station while I was in high school.

HOW HAS NEWS CHANGED SINCE YOU STARTED YOUR CAREER? When I started in television, we didn’t use the internet. Photographers had to lug around much heavier equipment. We used to have to shoot video on large tapes; now we shoot on tiny data cards.

TELL US ABOUT THE EMMY THAT YOU WON. I won a Southeast Regional Emmy award while I was working in Nashville (WKRN). I was recognized for a story I reported about a loyal dog named Nikki. The springer spaniel would follow her master (a 6-year-old boy) to school every day. The dog had to run eight miles behind the bus to get to school, then chase the bus eight miles back home at the end of the day. The story elicited response from across the country.

FAVORITE PLACE TO ESCAPE FROM REALITY? I go to the movies. For those two hours inside the theater, the whole world is put on hold. My husband and I have our own family Oscar game. We go to see all the nominated films and then cast our ballots at home. Whoever wins gets their name engraved on our family Oscar trophy and gets to pick which movies we see for the next year.

WHAT’S THE BEST PART ABOUT BEING A TV NEWS ANCHOR? I enjoy helping people through the stories we produce. We can reach so many people and make a difference in their lives. I’m constantly amazed by the giving nature of people in the North State. When we put the word out that someone needs help after a disaster or tragedy, there is never a shortage of people who step forward to assist. HOW DO YOU ALWAYS LOOK SO GOOD ON TV? DON’T TV PEOPLE HAVE BAD HAIR DAYS LIKE THE REST OF US? Ha! I always put a lot of emphasis on content, but no matter how good a script may be, sometimes an anchor’s appearance is what people notice first. My goal is to remember to put mascara on both eyes each morning, and make sure my hair isn’t sticking out the side of my head. Fortunately, we have great production people who let me know if I’ve forgotten to button my jacket or if my hair is sticking straight up. Believe me, if I make a bad wardrobe choice, the audience will let me know. WHAT IS THE MOST LIFE-CHANGING STORY YOU’VE EVER DONE? I still remember the first multiple-fatality accident I went to as a young reporter. I shot video of the crashed cars. But then I noticed the personal possessions thrown from the vehicles. There were shoes, articles of clothing and children’s toys. I went back to the news car and cried, a lot. It was a chilling reminder that news stories are all about people. Ever since then, I never forget that each story we cover affects families.

WHAT’S THE BEST PART ABOUT WORKING WITH YOUR HUSBAND? He understands the ups and downs of the news business. He understands the shorthand language. He’s also a great sounding board; he can offer advice because he’s been in my shoes before. WHAT’S THE WORST PART ABOUT WORKING WITH YOUR HUSBAND? It’s difficult not to take work home with us. The truth is, our kids don’t care what happened at work, they just want dinner and help with their homework. Our children are the top priority. WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT THE NORTH STATE? People really want to make their community better. I am also always inspired by the breathtaking natural beauty. I grew up in Illinois, so I didn’t see a mountain until I was in my 20s. I never tire of looking up at the foothills and mountains and giving thanks each day to live in such a beautiful place. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO AS A FAMILY? We are huge baseball and football fans. When we’re not watching, we’re out at the park throwing batting practice to the boys. I must admit, I have a pretty good fastball for a mom.

As children, Sage, Sara and Robin Toffanelli used to spend their after-school hours at their parents’ popular Chico store, Nantucket, doing homework. Wearing the pleated blue plaid skirts and white Peter Pan collared blouses of Notre Dame School, they would watch and learn the business between assignments. Today, all three are grown and have migrated back to the shop, albeit in a different location and with a slightly different name, after earning their degrees, getting married and experiencing their own adventures. “Starting with Sara, they all just came home,” says their mother, Nan, with a warm smile. Established in 1975 as Nantucket Quilt, the store has grown to become so much more than the original showcase for New England antiques, textiles and folk art. Throughout the years, Nan and husband Rick have expanded to include rugs, furniture and signature design services that have developed their brand as Curators of Lifestyle. Changing their name to Nantucket Home, the business helped revitalize the hip new section of downtown Chico known as SOPA—South of the Post Office— by moving in 2008 into the old Cadillac dealership, built in 1915, at 603 Broadway. The extensive remodel took two years of planning and execution to open up 12,000 square feet of space to accommodate all of Nantucket’s services under one roof. Three interior designers, including daughter Sage, help clients develop their own look in homes or offices. “The building is our pride and joy,” says Nan. “We spent a year thinking about it and planning it and then another year doing it. It turned out just like we wanted it and we love it. It’s our second home.” “A lot of people say they come in for inspiration,” says Sara of the showroom, which includes room vignettes that showcase furniture, accessories, art, rugs and more. “Lifestyles always change and we’re constantly changing,” adds Nan. One thing that surprises many, including parents in town to see children at Chico State University and people visiting for Sierra Nevada concerts, is that Nantucket Home isn’t part of a national chain and doesn’t have a national catalog. It’s strictly home grown, the result of years of small business development and investment. Not just a place to integrate the various elements of business, continued on page 64 November 2012 Enjoy 63

“Starting with Sara, they all just came home,” says their mother, Nan, with a warm smile. the showroom is also a place to integrate their values in the community. An annual wine tasting event at the shop supports the North State Symphony while also featuring local wineries. Nantucket Home hosts pet photos with Santa during the holidays in support of the Butte County Humane Society. Sage sits on the leadership board of the Chico Boys and Girls Club, and Rick is often on the air during local NPR station KCHO’s fundraisers. Designer Marci Goulart is the current chair of Chico’s Architectural Review Board. Describing her dad as a connector and noting that “he knows a lot about what’s going on in the community,” Sara says that Rick is the tie to various interests in the community, including activities of the Downtown Business Association. As principal designer, Nan has worked on the extensive remodel of the popular Chico restaurant Tres Hombres and has worked with home and business owners throughout the North State and as far away as the Bay Area, Portland and Montana. In keeping up with the times, Nantucket is developing an online store and already maintains a fairly large website. The store blog covers topics including design, lifestyle, community and family. “All of us write for it so there are many perspectives,” says Sarah. As part of their homecoming, each daughter has found a unique and meaningful place in the family business. Sage serves as a part64 Enjoy November 2012

time designer, returning to Chico after a stint in Los Angeles as a production manager for Politically Incorrect. Sara returned to manage the interior business after extensive travels, including time spent living in Torino, Italy. Youngest Robin received her degree at the University of Oregon and recently spent several months on the road with her husband and dog in a Volkswagen Eurovan seeing the United States. She is the store’s floor manager. The integration of work, family, community and design is something each member cherishes. “Sometimes I’ll look around and there’s all of us here and two or three grandchildren and the dogs,” says Rick with a smile. “We’re all here.” Perhaps that’s the real way Nantucket Quilt transformed to Nantucket Home. • Nantucket Home, 603 Broadway, Chico (530) 895-1038

R O OT S A N D S H O OT S I S O N A M I S S I O N Karen Scheuermann vividly recalls the Army Corps of Engineers film that cemented her resolve to be a good steward of nature. “I remember being in fourth grade and watching a black-and-white movie showing the Corps taking out meandering streams and putting in straight canals,” says Scheuermann. “I just couldn’t understand it and I’ve never forgotten it.” A teacher at heart, Scheuermann, who holds a master’s degree in biomedical science, has always enjoyed sharing what she’s learned with others. So when the opportunity to teach children about the local biosphere presented itself, she laid the groundwork and began sowing the seeds of learning. From her efforts sprouted Shasta Roots and Shoots -- the local chapter of Jane Goodall’s International Roots and Shoots program. The mission of Shasta Roots and Shoots is “to foster respect and compassion for all living things, to promote understanding of all cultures and beliefs, and to inspire each individual to take action to make the world a better place for animals, the environment and the human community.” Since 2003, Scheuermann has been dedicated to fulfilling this purpose. Shasta Roots and Shoots has labeled storm drains with “No Dumping, Drains to Creek” placards. They’ve planted trees that provide erosion control for creek banks, and they’ve constructed and installed bat boxes in areas disrupted by new construction. Other fun projects that have benefited the North State’s habitats: songbird nest boxes, turtle rafts at Turtle Bay and Anderson River Park, and with a grant from BoatUS Foundation, Shasta Roots and Shoots installed fishing line recycling receptacles at Whiskeytown Lake and Anderson River Park. What happens to all the spent strands? They are repurposed into “happy socks” for orphan kittens. continued on page 68

“ Kids care,” says Scheuermann. “They seem to be concerned about our biosphere. I think they’re going to take care of us.” When they’re not creating and cultivating, the Shasta Roots and Shoots troops are out exploring the many trails, forests and waterways that transect Shasta and Tehama counties. Three days per month, the group – ranging in size from two to 10 children – documents invasive plant species, monitors physical changes in ponds and macro invertebrates and observes animal activity. “We get out the GPS to locate where we find everything. We look for prints and fur and feathers, and we listen to figure out what’s out there,” says Scheuermann. Their nature mapping is an important activity that informs organizations, helping them make decisions regarding wildlife sustainability. And it’s not just flora and fauna that benefit from the program. Participants build self-esteem and strong community ties. Just as important, Scheuermann hopes the lessons they learn provide a foundation on which children can build a lifelong appreciation for nature. Scheuermann recalls one outing when a member experienced a defining moment that prompted a deeper understanding of the natural world. “I found a bushtit nest, a sack nest that holds about 12 teeny birds about the size of hummingbirds,” she says. She began

to share about the nestlings when a new boy wandered from the group, found a stick and, to Scheuermann’s surprise, began to swing at the nest. She took the budding naturalist aside and explained the importance of coexisting with wild things. Since then, he has been one of her most enthusiastic members. “He’s become one of the key guys,” says Scheuermann. “He stays right by my side and is kind of a big brother to everybody when we are on our hikes.” Scheuermann understands that just as a tree doesn’t build strong roots and healthy shoots in a day, an appreciation for nature doesn’t come all at once. She trusts that providing children with an environment where they are free to explore, observe and engage with the natural world will encourage them to make positive change happen for earth and its inhabitants. “Kids care,” says Scheuermann. “They seem to be concerned about our biosphere. I think they’re going to take care of us.”•

Forget me Not 2 N D A N N U A L WA L K F O R A L Z H E I M E R ' S A flower garden of purple, yellow, orange and green sprouted and disappeared on the north side of the Sundial Bridge all in one hour during the second annual Redding Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Some 250 participants, many in wheelchairs, many representing local assisted living and skilled nursing facilities, many in honor of loved ones living and dying with the disease, walked the two-mile route on Sept. 15 after planting their “promise” flowers. From the beginning words of inspiration to the final steps and retrieval of flowers, connections were made among those who carry the cause close to their hearts as advocates, caregivers and those afflicted. Redding participants joined thousands around the country who walked to raise money and awareness. “I see his internal battle. He slips away, further and further away as the day proceeds. I envision his battle. The ground sinks while he

struggles alone to stand firm. Like a light bulb he snaps back and there he is – my stepfather once again, his smile larger than life, his posture upright, unshakable once more. His high-five, being the highlight of my day, delivers me a smile – we stand two men for a brief moment, and for a decimal of forever he is not sick.” ~Richard Velador The incidence of diagnosed Alzheimer’s disease is increasing. “An estimated 5.4 million people are living with Alzheimer’s disease, including at least 800,000 who live alone,” says William Fisher, CEO of the Northern California and Nevada Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. He projects that 16 million Americans will have Alzheimer’s by 2050 if a cure is not found. The cost of caring for people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias is estimated at around $200 billion for 2012 and, if not arrested, will “increase to $1.1 trillion per year by 2050.” continued on page 72 November 2012 Enjoy 71

Senility, dementia, Alzheimer’s… words long associated with aging. The synapses in our brains don’t pass the messages needed to inform us, remind us and warn us. We forget. We forget that we forget, a sign that this is more than just a momentary lapse. Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other intellectual abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life, according to the Alzheimer's Association. But “Alzheimer's is not a normal part of aging, although the greatest known risk factor is increasing age, and the majority of people with Alzheimer's are 65 and older,” the association says. Age is considered a risk factor, not the cause.

“We look forward to a time when the only memory we lose is of a world with Alzheimer’s.” Cyd and Joyce Watkins, daughter and mother, teased and joked along this year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s as Joyce’s caregiver pushed her wheelchair. Debbie Luntey, another walker, shared about the years of loving care and attention and the final moments of loss. She said knowing what should be done for loved ones is much easier than doing it, and that the heart often interferes when, at last, hard decisions must be made. Becky Robinson, Regional Director for the North Valley Region of the Alzheimer’s Association, says, “We realize that the person is still in there… their entire history and life story is still there. They may not be able to talk about it or communicate it, but they identify with it deep in their being, so that can be celebrated. It can help us through this challenging journey.” Lorene Bower Holley, administrator for Willow Springs, an Alzheimer’s special care center in Redding, has written about the strength of those who suffer from the disease, and along with her staff, celebrates “meaningful moments” in the fading lives of those whose pasts are filled with accomplishment, rich family memories and courage. As this year’s team chairperson for the committee that put together the walk, Holley shares their vision that the distinctive purple-emblemed Walk to End Alzheimer’s will grow as have other important causes, so that the community looks forward to it each fall. Robinson agrees. “It’s a day to feel a sense of community and shared celebration of those who work together and support one another in the fight.” Cory Post of Redding Radio and emcee of this year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s enunciated the Alzheimer’s Association vision: “We look forward to a time when the only memory we lose is of a world with Alzheimer’s.” • Alzheimer’s Association: 800-272-3900, To make donations: Alzheimer’s Association • 2105 Forest Ave., Suite 130 Chico, CA 95928 (Designate Redding on the check)

I D E A S F O R R E D E C O R AT I N G O N A B U D G E T It’s the place where family gathers, where laughter and comfort reign supreme. Photographs of loved ones grace the mantle top and sofa table. The refrigerator is adorned with children’s recent art projects. Sure, your walls are covered in fingerprints, much to your chagrin. Your carpets could use a good cleaning, your side tables are riddled with nicks and scratches, and your couch could certainly stand a few more throw pillows. No, it’s not perfect – but its home. As the holidays approach, the added pressure of making our homes perfectly presentable for visiting friends and family members can put a damper on the holiday spirit. But fear not. There are ways to update your home fabulously without blowing all of your Christmas cash. Consignment shops and antique stores are wonderful options for environmentally friendly and budget-conscious style upgrades for your home. Darlene Cox, owner of Finders Keepers in Redding, managed to perfect the fine art of redecorating on a budget long before she took ownership of the beautiful boutique-style consignment shop on Hilltop Drive two years ago. “I have always shopped this way. I can change my style affordably with consignment pieces. If I decided to buy new furniture every time I got a whim, my husband would divorce me,” she laughs. But it’s more than just the rush of changing the look of her home that keeps her passion for consignment furniture burning. The best thing about shopping on consignment, Cox insists, is that you can find high-quality, well-made pieces that may be otherwise out of your desired price range at unbeatable prices. The money you spend in a

store like Finders Keepers stays local, since the pieces are consigned, and, in some cases, handmade by locals. The fact that the home furnishings in a consignment shop have been previously loved means that you can enjoy your purchase that much more, knowing that you aren’t contributing any additional waste to the environment. Cox suggests that a mixture of modern and vintage items creates a comfortable and stylish home environment. “‘Matchy-matchy’ is definitely out – otherwise you run the risk of having your home look like a department store,”Cox says. In addition to mixing old and new, Cox says that adding touches of color to a neutral backdrop is the perfect way to make noticeable upgrades to the look of your home without having to make huge financial or style commitments. Shades of turquoise, teal, red, cinnamon, plum and black are hugely popular right now. Accent pieces such as occasional tables, chairs, ottomans, lamps, mirrors, vases, pillows and wall décor are ideal vehicles for introducing lively hues. Shabby chic, which remains one of the most popular style concepts here in the North State and beyond, is known for its country inspired lines and “imperfectly beautiful” paint jobs, in addition to its whimsical and unexpected combinations of vintage items. Midcentury modern, which hails from the1950s to the 1970s, “would remind you of what your parents or grandparents may have had in their homes when you were a child, but the trick to keeping it from looking like a time warp is to mix in some current pieces with the vintage ones,” Cox says. “Vintage lockers are something that I continued on page 76 November 2012 Enjoy 75

can’t seem to keep in – they are gone as soon as they hit the door. They are characteristic of the modern industrial wave that is beginning to build in the North State,” says Cox. A stroll around the sales floor at Finders Keepers is a lesson in just how beautiful an eclectic mix can be. Marc Moretti, owner of Eighth and Main Antique Center in Chico, can certainly vouch for the popularity of shabby chic, midcentury modern (which he lovingly refers to as “the Jetsons’ look”) and modern industrial style concepts. These three unique style perspectives manifest themselves in the work of many local designers who showcase their creations in his store. “Many former collectors have become vendors and designers. Their booths are extensions of their homes,” says Moretti. With booths from 60 vendors, you are never likely to see the same thing twice. It’s the uniqueness of the merchandise that keeps customers coming back. According to Moretti, one of the most unique items in his store is an “upcycled” (refurbished with a new and unexpected twist) alley dumpster painted a vibrant blue which has been transformed into a functional storage unit. Wooton desks, which are one of a kind and made in the 1880s, remain a specialty go-to item at Eighth and Main Antique Center. Moretti says that finding unique items to update your home has never been easier or more open to individual style interpretation. He noted old frames, wall sconces, iron pieces and other old elements

76 Enjoy November 2012

with character as some of the most frequently purchased items in his store. “We have noticed people layering the frames inside of each other on the wall, and putting sconces and other pieces at the center of it,” says Moretti. This newfangled perspective, which Moretti refers to as French rustic, is focused on comfort and incorporating items that make a house feel like a home, rather than abiding by strict style constraints. The “down home on the farm” feeling evoked by the French rustic style is quite a sharp contrast to the formal Victorian style furniture and décor that has traditionally been associated with antiques. “It’s what the antique world has moved into,” he says. As you prepare your home for visits from your loved ones this holiday season, don’t obsess about what isn’t perfect. Instead, incorporate a new side table with a fresh and welcoming pop of color, opt for a lamp or a throw pillow in a whimsical pattern, or swap your current photo frames for ones with the love of the ages. Remind yourself that it doesn’t have to be expensive or overdone. It just has to be you. •

Punk music is no longer just about the Sex Pistols and the Ramones. Mixing itself with traditional Eastern European music, the genre has given birth to a creative, high-energy dance music known as Gypsy Punk or Gypsy Rock. If there’s any sort of a popular movement with this style of music, Diego’s Umbrella is a part of that, drawing comparisons to bands like Gogol Bordello, DeVotchKa and even Tucson’s Calexico. The San Francisco-based band has been called the Bay Area’s “Ambassadors of Gypsy Rock” and masters of “Mexicali Gypsy Polka Pirate Punk.”  They have toured the United States and the world in countless festivals and concerts, performing in venues as intimate as New York City’s The Living Room lounge to ones as large as Austin’s “SXSW” music festival.  “It’s like static cling,” says singer-guitarist Ben Leon. “Being in California, you’re surrounded by all sorts of different music. You do some traveling, and you pick up things along the way. We’ve been to Europe a few times, and there’s lots of great stuff, and we just grabbed it and incorporated it into the act. We’ve played a couple of Jewish weddings and picked up some klezmer. continued on page 80 November 2012 Enjoy 79

beast a third head.”


All this stuff gets thrown into Diego’s Umbrella and it all comes out as our music.” The band consists of guitarists Tyson Maulhardt, Vaughn Lindstrom, violinist Jason Kleinberg, bassist Kevin Blair, drummer Jake Wood and singer Leon. The music is a multi-ethnic blend of  flamenco, klezmer, surf-rock, Eastern European and Mexican, with an urban energy that shows up as gritty punk rock.  “The band started up when Vaughn and Tyson met at the University of California at Santa Cruz,” says Leon. “They were surferhippies, jamming and recording together for a long time. It was more G. Love/Jack Johnson back then. All of us are California-born, other than Vaughn, who was born in Wisconsin, but has lived in Cali most of his life. It has taken a long time to develop into what it is now. Tyson is fond of saying that they sucked for the first five years. Jason Kleinberg (violin) was a huge addition to the band; he opened up a lot of sonic possibilities, and is an outstanding, exciting soloist.”   Diego’s Umbrella’s live shows are passionate and uninhibited, with songs often as catchy as they are irreverent. Their lyrics weave stories of fantasy, erotica and mystery, with enough absurd humor to remove even the faintest hint of seriousness. Other songs are sad, lonesome and sincere.  Says Leon, “It really depends on the song. Sometimes the story is integral to the song, and sometimes you get a lot of imagery that rolls off the tongue. And sometimes it’s pure nonsense.” The band also dresses uniformly, in outfits they sew themselves, looking somewhere in between military and marching band. “The uniforms are a part of the show, the Mariachis uniforms are

only one of the ones that we’ve gone through. Mariachi is a part of the culture in California, and we’re all fans, so it’s fun to throw in the stew. Also, it’s a show, and Mariachi gear looks great on stage.” They have released three full-length albums since their formation: Kung Fu Palace (2006), Viva La Juerga (2007) and Double Panther (2009). Proper Cowboy is the group’s new release, and it marks a first-time collaboration with San Francisco producers the Rondo Brothers, who have produced MC Lars and Foster the People.  The project resulted in reverb-soaked guitars and gypsy fiddles augmented by an army of tubas, analog synths and soaring vocals in what the band calls a “futuristic spaghetti-Western soundtrack.” Stand-out tracks on Proper Cowboy include a cover of the Sonny and Cher hit song “A Cowboy’s Work Is Never Done” and “Bulletproof Shine,” which features guest vocals from Angelo Moore of Fishbone. About the album, Leon says, “We get a little out of control in the studio, but it’s not the same as our live performances, where we just let the beast off the chain, and it grows a third head.” • Sierra Nevada Big Room • November 19 Phil Reser has written stories on major American rock and music acts for newspapers, magazines and radio stations since receiving his journalism degree from San Francisco State University.

What’s Cookin’

By: Lana Granfors

Photos: Kara Stewart

Pumpkin Pleasures Fall — it’s finally here, and if you love to cook, this time of year is the best baking and cooking season as the weather serves up the perfect excuse to retreat to the comforts of the kitchen. Start by stocking up on canned pumpkin and pumpkin spice immediately as recipes, new and old, beckon. This trifle is a sweet and spicy pumpkin-y creation that easily takes its place at any party table. The layers of mousse-like spiced pumpkin custard are alternated with snow-white whipped cream and shaved dark chocolate to create a festive dessert for the holiday season. This could very well become your new fall favorite. The other is an autumn twist on an old favorite snack. Break out the board games and fill a bowl for everyone. They’ll be begging for seconds. PuMPKIN MOuSSE TRIFLE INGREDIENTS: 5 large egg yolks 1 cup sugar 3 ½ cups heavy cream 15 oz. canned pumpkin 2 tsp. vanilla extract 1 ½ tsp. ground cinnamon ½ tsp. ground ginger ¼ tsp. ground nutmeg ¼ tsp. salt 2 T. dark rum 1 tsp. powdered gelatin 3 oz. shaved dark chocolate PREPARATION Prepare an ice bath by filling a large bowl halfway with ice and water and set aside. ▶ Whisk the yolks, 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, and 3/4 cup cream together in a medium saucepan. Heat while stirring continuously with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon over medium-low heat, until thickened and the mixture coats the spatula—about 10 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and set over the ice bath. Stir to cool. ▶ Add pumpkin, vanilla, spices and salt to the egg mixture. Stir 1 tablespoon rum and 1 teaspoon gelatin together in a small bowl. Heat the remaining tablespoon of rum, and stir into the gelatin mixture until dissolved. Gently whisk into the pumpkin mixture. Beat 1/2 cup cream to stiff peaks, and fold into pumpkin mixture. Pour into a shallow dish, cover and chill until cold and thick enough to fall from a spoon in heavy dollops—about 8 hours or up to overnight. ▶ To finish and serve, beat the remaining cream and sugar to stiff peaks. Alternately layer the pumpkin mousse and whipped cream in a glass serving dish. Sprinkle the chocolate shavings between top two layers. Serve chilled.

PUMPKIN MOUSSE TRIFLE Prep time: 25 mins Chill: 8 hours - overnight Serves: 16 PUMPKIN PIE CRUNCH SNACK Prep Time: 15 min Servings: 16 – ½ cups

PuMPKIN PIE CRuNCH SNACK INGREDIENTS: ¼ cup brown sugar 1 T pumpkin pie spice ¼ cup butter 2 tsp vanilla 2 cup cinnamon-flavored rice squares cereal 2 cup honey nut-flavored rice squares cereal 2 cup graham cracker cereal 8 oz honey-roasted peanuts or roasted pecans PREPARATION In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice and set aside. In small microwave-safe dish, microwave butter on high about 30 seconds or until melted. Stir in vanilla. Combine the cereals into a large microwavable bowl. Pour butter mixture over cereal mixture, then add nuts and stir. Heat the mixture in the microwave for 5-6 minutes, stirring every two minutes. Next, add sugar and spice mixture and stir well until coated. Spread out onto cookie sheets and let cool. Mix can be made up to two weeks ahead. Store the mix in an airtight container.

WHAT’S IN STORE PACIFIC SUN OLIVE OIL From the tree to the bottle, award-winning Pacific Sun Olive Oil is 100 percent natural and local. The mill is part of Pacific Farms and Orchards, Inc., a third-generation operation that has been in business in Tehama County since 1952. Pacific Sun’s olives are grown and harvested locally, then milled and bottled on the family farm in Gerber. Owner Jane Flynn and her son, general manager Brendon Flynn, head up the operation, and Pacific Sun’s Callie Wolverton shares a little more about the company. Why do people enjoy your products so much? People really enjoy our product, first and foremost, because it’s locally produced. They know the Flynn family and they know Tehama County’s olives are exceptional, so they know that what comes out of our mill is an exceptional product, as well. What is the difference between mass-produced olive oil and yours? We only produce extra virgin olive oil, and we mill within 24 hours of the fruit being picked. That’s not an exception to the rule - that is the rule. We do ours in small batches, so you’re getting one person watching it from the truck until it goes into the bottle. There’s a pride from start to finish. And we’re always inviting our customers to the mill, to tour and taste. They can check out our shop and our farm. We want that transparency.

on the store front

When is your busy season? We mill from October into February. We’ll even run 24 hours a day sometimes. October through December are our busiest months, but the late harvest goes into January and February, and that’s when some of our flavored fruit oil is produced. What is your business philosophy? Artisan is huge for us. We’re not striving to be the biggest or the most well known. You’re getting a product that’s local and high quality, and it’s always the same as the last time you purchased it. We don’t add anything to the oil to preserve it. To make our Meyer lemon olive oil, we take whole segments of the lemons and run them through the mill with the olives. That’s what makes its mild, natural flavor. What are some of the more creative ways to use olive oil? Facial and body scrubs! You can blend the Proprietor’s Select olive oil, honey and brown sugar, and it provides an excellent lubricant for shaving or dry feet. Pregnant women use olive oil to prevent stretch marks. Olive oil and lemon juice are a fantastic remedy for kidney stones. You can substitute it for butter in baked goods - we have a customer who makes decadent brownies and lemon cakes, and you could never tell that they’re made with olive oil. And there’s olive oil ice cream - top it with flavored balsamic vinegar and it will blow your mind.•

Say “ugly sweater,” and most folks’ thoughts turn to smiling reindeer and glittery trees. At the Second Time Around thrift shop on North Market Street, however, you can set your sights much higher. Or, in this case, lower. Envision, if you will, a black sweater featuring a pirate parrot dressed in its very own ugly Christmas sweater. Or a three-toned blue pullover with a Santa Claus stocking sewn on, which serves as a hands-free holder for the authentic red Solo cup tucked inside. These gems are among the dozens of gaudy conversation starters that can be had for about 10 bucks apiece at Second Time Around, a thrift shop run by Northern Valley Catholic Social Service. Garland, silk flowers and hot pink monkeys are among the outlandish embellishments that creative volunteers have used in their quest to give you the edge in your office’s ugly Christmas sweater contest. It wasn’t so long ago that holiday sweaters donated to Second Time Around gathered dust on the hangers, then got put away for another year. “We’d put them out for Christmas and no one would buy them,” says Kathy Ripley, the thrift store’s program manager. Then last year, as ugly Christmas sweater parties grew as a national trend, 70 sweaters were snapped up in three days. “All of a sudden there were all these requests, so we went all out and started decorating our own,” Ripley says. “We had to haul butt and make some every day. We use craft items and hot glue and just get outrageous with them.” 102 Enjoy November 2012

These crafty embellishers range in age from their 20s to 95. They get together for a few hours at a time and let their inner gaudy goddess run wild. “One of our ladies got ill, but she said, ‘Bring me some rickrack and glitter,’ and she made them at home,” Ripley says. By the time Santa made his annual trek last year, the shop had sold almost 200 sweaters. They’re planning to sell even more this year. “It’s a year-round effort, with volunteers doing their best to make the most hideous Christmas sweaters they can,” says Jake Mangas, development director for Northern Valley Catholic Social Service. His wife is the proud owner of one such sweater (it’s bedecked with gold tinsel and beads). “Normally you’d see an older crowd in the thrift store, but we have all these college-age students and youth groups. They’re all here for the ugly Christmas sweaters,” Mangas says. • Second Time Around Thrift Shop 872 N. Market St., Redding 10 am to 5 pm Monday through Saturday

Shasta Regional Medical Center is PROUD to PARTNER with

Shasta Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce our partnership with Anthem Blue Cross as an in-network preferred provider effective October 15, 2012. Providing compassionate, high quality care in conjunction with Anthem Blue Cross is a win-win situation for both organizations, but it is especially beneficial to the community we serve. With our recent award as a nationally ranked 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospital and being the region’s only Accredited Chest Pain Center as well as being the first Primary Stroke Center since 2006, we are joining the fight against America’s #1 killer, heart disease. In 2010, we were the first hospital in California and 11th in the nation to be certified as an Advanced Inpatient Diabetes Care hospital, and the only Diabetes Out-Patient program in the North State. Shasta Regional is proud to now expand our award winning hospital services to Anthem Blue Cross members. At Shasta Regional, our team is focused on providing superior quality healthcare, which has earned us National recognition, but the real honor is playing a VITAL role in saving lives in our community every day.
