NOVEMBER 2013 As we gather with loved ones this month, our hearts swell with gratitude for life’s blessings, large and small. We’re thankful for so many things, including having so many fascinating places within an easy drive of home. The folks at Tehama Country Visitor Center have made it their mission to help all of us find the myriad experiences that make Tehama County unique. From Lassen Volcanic National Park to that cute little shop in historic downtown Red Bluff, they’ll point you in the right direction. Or head north to Mt. Shasta Ski Park, where you can glide down the slopes of one of the world’s most beautiful mountains. Want to show your sweetheart the extent of your love? Few things are more romantic than a spin around a ballroom floor. Take your beloved for a twirl while enjoying jazzy or classical melodies laid down by local musicians. We’ll tell you more in this issue. Then, meet Sarah Adams, who is grateful for Chico Chai’s customers. They appreciate her painstaking work to blend organic spices in the quest to create the perfect cup of chai. Looking for something a little edgier? The guys at The Argus pride themselves on shaking up sophisticated cocktails. Feel free to sip slowly. Don’t forget to stop by Enjoy the Store to select a perfectly unique, locally produced gift for your Thanksgiving hosts. And once the Turkey Trot has been run and the feast is done, Jana Leard will be ready to get you into the holiday spirit with another spectacular production of A Cascade Christmas. She and her elves have been working for months to continue this lovely tradition of song and dance that will kick the Christmas season off right. As you celebrate Thanksgiving, please know that we are thankful for you. Enjoy!

s k i i n g a n d b o a r d i n g o n t h e S lo p e s o f S h a s ta Mt. Shasta Ski Park would fit into a corner of Aspen or Heavenly Valley resorts and leave a lot of room left over. But where you will find thousands of skiers and harried staff at huge ski areas, the Mt. Shasta Ski Park offers less-crowded runs, helpful staff and lift tickets that won’t break the family budget. A family of four with younger kids could ski all day midweek for under $100. Ticket options include half day, night skiing, half day with night skiing and more. All this is tucked into a forested area overlooked by majestic 14,179-foot Mt. Shasta. Located between Mount Shasta and McCloud off Highway 89 with easy access off Interstate 5, the Mt. Shasta Ski Park offers a family-friendly environment for skiing and snowboarding. Three lifts serve three distinct areas with 32 runs and a well-developed terrain park. The park offers beginner to advanced runs. Don’t think of little short chutes when you

think of the Mt. Shasta Ski Park, as the longest run is nearly two miles long with a large number of runs offering great slides of good length. Experts can carve through the trees that line many of the runs. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoons, the lights come on and night skiing on beginner and advanced terrain is open for those who like to ride by moonlight or the stars. The tubing area for just playing in the snow also opens in the afternoon. Veteran skiers have noted that the beginner area serviced by the Marmot lift is one of the best they have seen. Beginner runs are often very short, but Marmot offers nearly a mile of continuously gentle terrain with short, moderate intermediate choices off the main run. The award-winning ski school is staffed by well-trained instructors. The kids’ learning area hosts a “magic carpet” that operates like a moving walkway, gliding little ones effortlessly up a short,4 continued on page 16

easy slope. The rope tow in the longer practice area has now been replaced by a magic carpet, making the transition for beginning skiers more pleasant. Amenities include five food service areas that include everything from pizza to gourmet sandwiches to espresso. A unique outdoor food stop is the Black Diamond Grill at the top of the Douglas lift that offers incredible vistas of the surrounding mountains. The full-service, over-21 lounge is open all day and late into the evening for guests to enjoy libations while listening to local bands. Services include group and private lessons, full board and ski rentals, repairs and a sport shop. The park has extensive snowmaking abilities that keep the runs covered well past the winter storms. Events include the Slopestyle Competition, Big-Air Competition, Night Rail Jam and a New Year’s Eve party with fireworks. The Mt. Shasta Ski Park is family owned, and you will often see co-owners Chuck Young and Andy Aguilera roaming the park with big smiles, saying hi, riding the runs and making sure their customers’ experience brings them back to the friendliest ski park they can imagine. • Mt.

Queen of the Juggle mu lt i -ta s ki ng with vintner’s cellar and ca scad e ch r istma s’ JAN A LEARD When a singer struggles with a note, “A Cascade Christmas” Director Jana Pulcini-Leard coaches expertly. When an actor fumbles a line, she encourages lovingly. When a cast member proposes a different way to block a scene on stage, she listens intently. It’s second nature for this busy mother, wife, business owner and show director to honor the artists who are devoting countless hours to bring her vision to life. “I think Jana is the perfect collaborator,” says Cascade Theatre General Manager Jeff Darling. “She has the ability to listen and then get people from many different groups to work together. I have never met a more positive person. She is always looking for solutions, not barriers.”

This marks Jana’s 10th year with “A Cascade Christmas,” her third year as director, and her 33rd stage show in 33 years. The production involves a staff of 12, a company team of 45 and numerous volunteers. “It’s not just my show and I’ve never felt that way,” Jana says. “We’ve really expanded our support system.” Jana grew up in Palo Cedro and graduated from Red Bluff’s Mercy High School in 1998. She attended Shasta College and majored in recording arts and theater at Loyola Marymount College, where she met Alan Leard. They moved to Redding together, and Jana immersed herself in a wide variety of artistic endeavors. After the Leards were married in 2004, they briefly moved to Port Hueneme, where Alan worked as a civilian engineer for the Navy and Jana4 continued on page 20

worked with an after-school program and a talent agency. But soon they were Redding-bound for good, as Alan became a work-at-home Navy contractor and the two dreamed up “the wild idea” to open a winery. They bought the franchise and territory rights for Vintner’s Cellar of California, and their Redding shop quickly surpassed all other locations for sales. With business booming, Alan quit the Navy and the pair devoted their energy to running the winery, where customers can make and bottle their own wine, create custom wine labels, or just sit and sip a glass. “It’s quaint and intimate. It’s kind of gotten the reputation as the Cheers of Redding,” Jana says. “We really do know everybody’s name. We know the story behind every single custom label that leaves our winery.” They’re always trying to adapt to the community’s desires, and recently launched the “Paint With a Splash” series, where an artist guides guests through the creation of a painting while they sip wine, enjoy hors d’oeuvres and visit with friends. Vintner’s Cellar also recently began selling local wines. “We love to do wine tastings with wines that were made within a 50-mile radius and grown in our dirt with our water by people who live here,” Alan says. They’re also big proponents of supporting fellow small business owners. “They are either our customer or they could be our customer. They go see Jana’s shows,” Alan says. “I know times are tight, but if we could all make one decision a week to buy local, it could make an impact.” Jana was the 2013 Downtown Businessperson of the Year, and the Leards have served on the boards for the Downtown Redding Business Association, the Wine Walk and Viva Downtown. “We try to work collaboratively with everybody. We get

together and think about how to work for a better downtown,” Jana says. As opening night for “A Cascade Christmas” approaches, Jana’s attention is focused on the stage. Directing requires a drastically different eye than performing, but she has embraced the challenge. “On opening night for ‘A Cascade Christmas’ during my first year as director, we got a standing ovation, and I remember thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, everything I’ve been thinking about in my head, I just saw on stage. I made it come to life and that’s amazing.’” Although the curtains haven’t yet opened on this year’s holiday spectacular, Jana and her team recently cast the spring musical, “The Wizard of Oz.” “I want to make it the most visually stimulating production you’ve ever seen,” Jana says. “Think trapdoors and fire.” The light of her life is son Avan, almost 2. While Jana visits with a guest in their living room, the blond boy peeks into the window from the backyard, giggling and blowing kisses to her while his dad draws a baseball diamond with sidewalk chalk on the patio. As a developer, superintendent and engineer for Appcelerator, Alan is also able to work mostly from home - the ideal setup for their young family. So how does it work, a marriage between an actress and a technology guy, balancing the daily demands of raising a child, owning a business and producing shows? “We do refer to each other as our perfect love,” Jana says. “We’re both creators at heart. Together, we make a really good team,” adds Alan. Says Jana: “We live a totally weird life, but it’s perfect for us.” • “A Cascade Christmas” • Nov. 29-30 and Dec. 5-7 Tickets $10-25 • Cascade Theatre, Redding (530) 243-887 •

m a k i n g i t f r e s h w i t h c h i co c h a i A laminated world map hangs on the wall of Chico Chai’s humble headquarters on Park Avenue in Chico. Scientific drawings of each spice used in the distinct blends developed in the kitchen are attached to lines that point to the country of origin for each plant - cardamom, black pepper, star anise, cinnamon and more. The map, altered to say “World of Chai,” is a hint as to how Chico Chai lives up to its tagline: Spicy. Local. Fresh. Sourced from organic farms using fair trade practices, the spices travel from faraway lands to Chico to be expertly blended with tea leaves by Sarah Adams into products that are gaining popularity throughout the North State. They end up in independent coffee

houses in the form of a strong brew to be combined fresh with milk, and on store shelves in loose leaf form for home use. “Our growth model so far has been slow and sustainable growth,” says Adams, 35, of the business she founded in 2004. After experiencing chai‒ a spiced Indian tea traditionally made with milk and sugar‒ for the first time in college, she became obsessed with blending the tea and spices herself at home, trying different combinations each time. That obsession was probably foretold by her love of her tea set as a child. “I still have it,” she says. “It’s still in its original package. I didn’t break anything.” By the time she graduated Humboldt State with her degree in wildlife biology, the seed of an idea was planted to make chai for a4 continued on page 24

She set up shop at the Saturday farmers’ market in Chico and began to notice that “every week it got a little larger.” People asked for samples, many of whom were introduced to chai for the first time at her booth. “It was all pretty much word of mouth and me going out to talk to people,” she says. The company has grown to the point where Adams has hired her first employees and her list of vendors grows by the month. “Northern California is our market,” she says. “Being locally based, we have the luxury of just being able to make it and deliver it.” The Chico Chai product line is simple: strong brew that is sold to coffee houses and in quarts or gallons for home use in select stores, and a line of four-five loose leaf blends that have a wider distribution because they do not need refrigeration. For the loose leaf, she blends Original Chai with black tea. Then there is a Chocolate Chai which4 continued on page 26

living. After a season out in the field with her degree, she was ready to let that seed grow. “I just kept planning it in my head while I was working,” she says. Part of getting started was to determine which spices would be worthy of a name like Chico Chai. After experimenting with countless combinations, she whittled it down to 10 essentials. Fresh chai has a complexity of flavors that reveal themselves in layers, and Adams definitely has her favorites. As the tagline suggests, she isn’t afraid to go bold. She uses only fresh spices, no flavorings, oils or extracts, and grinds them only when she is ready to make a fresh batch. When they are simmered into the strong brew, she adds just a bit of organic raw cane sugar. Adams took several classes at the Small Business Development Center to get going and has been learning as she goes. “I started small enough that it took just a couple thousand dollars to start up,” she says. She was brewing just a couple gallons a week at the start.

The Mate Chai uses Yerba Mate instead of black tea, while the Red Chai blends a caffeine-free Rooibos. A seasonal blend is usually available. On the first Sunday of each month, the public is invited to Chico Chai headquarters to taste the different blends‒‒ cold in summer and hot in fall and winter‒ and learn how they are made. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the tasting room will be open every Sunday. Chico Chai has been entered in the North American Tea Championships and placed second in 2011 and third in 2012. “Freshness makes a big difference,” says Adams, acknowledging that she plans to blend this year’s entry the day before she sends it. There’s a hint of competitiveness to Adams when it comes to judging the quality of her teas. That trait is non-existent, however, when it comes to her philosophy of growth. “I’m a big fan of growing inward first,” she says. • Chico Chai • 1919 Park Ave., Chico • (530) 897-0822

2nd time around r o n b l a c k ’ s s e c o n d t i m e ta b l e s a r e r e cyc l e d t r e a s u r e s Step into Ron Black’s workshop in Oak Run and it’s clear you’ve entered the world of tinkerer-turned-artist extraordinaire. Tidy and well-organized, his shop boasts well-placed table tools, rows of paints, compounds and chemicals, and numerous blue bins of colorful glass shards. Ron and his partner, Connie Koch, moved to the property about three years ago after work as a contractor in Mendocino County went the way of the recession. In the past year, they have been manufacturing products from discarded bottles and cement. Their company, Second Time Tables, makes and sells upscale, one-of-akind patio tables and umbrella stands from cement mixed with recycled glass gleaned from local artisans. They’ve recently added unique chess tables made from granite and marble countertop castoffs. Ron cleverly hews chess pieces from bottle necks, giving each piece a surprisingly recognizable personality. When asked about the foray into chess sets, Koch says, “You wouldn’t believe how many people play chess. Games with $10,000 stakes are not unheard of.” Compared to other custom sets on the market that sell for upwards of $8,000, with features such as cherry wood inlays and exotic woods, theirs are a deal for less than $1,000. Black is especially proud of the chess sets, which he perfected just last summer, because of their character. That, plus his own personal cost of nearly losing a finger as he milled some of the granite squares, he chuckles. The finger survived intact, thankfully, and he continues to experiment, adding all sorts of inlays into the board game squares. “I can add sea shells, special coins, pretty much anything glass or porcelain,” he says, noting his flexibility gives clients the opportunity to customize a set in a deeply personal way.4 continued on page 30 29 | Enjoy May 2013

november 2013 ENJOY | 29

So how does one move from contractor to cement artisan? His curiosity piqued as he installed cement countertops while helping restore an old hotel in Mendocino County. “I looked at those and thought, huh, I want to add a flair to these.”“I’m an artist at heart,” he says. “It’s just in me. It’s just something I do.” For a year, he studied concrete, reinforced fibers and plasticizers, noting how properties interacted until he found a way to make a high-strength product he could work with. It’s not the first time he has expressed his artistry. “I lived with the Makah Indian tribe up in Neah Bay, Wash., from 1991 to 1994,” he says. “I hung out and did what they did…combed the beaches and made stuff out of what we found. Sea urchin lamps out of sea urchins and driftwood, for example.” He has also built wishing wells from rocks and a redwood water wheel for a city in Southern California.

“He does all this from his brain,” says Koch, clearly impressed by his creativity. “Whatever he puts his mind to, he does it. He’s amazing.” The pair are gearing up for a brisk Christmas season, hoping to move several chess sets as well as backgammon games, his newest prototype. A recent coup opened the door to Allegro Classics, a high-end patio store for outdoor living, where they display their umbrella bases. “They’re planning to market our products to cruise ships and hotels,” says Koch. Each piece is solid and will stand the test of time so a commercial use makes sense. However, the tables are perfect for any homeowner interested in adding a unique and lasting piece to an outdoor living area. Tables start around $350. Prices depend on size and customization features, something Black and Koch are keen to add. “We’ll do what the client wants,” they say. Next up on Black’s gotta-try-this list are experiments with fiberoptics. He’s hoping to add rivers of light to the tables and glow-in-the-dark glass pieces to the cement. • Second Time Tables •

mo u nt shasta’s all women g roup no boys aloud “All-girl” singing groups have often been the rage in the pop music scene, from the Andrew Sisters in the 1930s and ‘40s to the contemporary Spice Girls and Dixie Chicks. Now from Mount Shasta comes No Boys Aloud, an all-women group of musicians and singers that play an incredible variety of instruments and sing with a fervor, covers and originals that range from rock to blues to funk to bluegrass. The core members are Cindy Summers on percussion, Kate Bachman on drums and mandolin, Dana Knight on bass and vocals, Janet Ackerman Beck on ukulele, kazoo, percussion and vocals, Julie May on fiddle, banjo, guitar and vocals, and Paula Reynolds on guitar, flute and vocals. Others are occasionally invited to join in.

Reynolds has been around the Mount Shasta music scene for many years, and if there is a nominal leader of the band, it is Reynolds. “No Boys Aloud came out of a project called Chic Music that played at the Art on the Block events in Mount Shasta,” Reynolds says. “I was always doing projects that included women.” The members of No Boys Aloud, ranging in age from 40 to 50, came aboard one by one for a variety of reasons, merging together as a band about two years ago. Each has her reasons for wanting to be a part of No Boys Aloud. “When Paula invited me to be a part of the group, I was ecstatic,” Ackerman Beck says. “I’m having the time of my life.” 4 continued on page 34

“I’m grateful to be a part of an incredible group of women. The synergy of the group is amazing,” Summers says. “It’s joyful to share our music with people.” Knight says she was Reynolds’ neighbor, and when invited to join the band she said, “Heck yeah! This is a very special group of women.” Bachman was playing drums with a band when Reynolds heard her playing at the top of the Douglas lift at the Mount Shasta Ski Park and asked her to join. “I love the different kind of energy that comes from playing with women,” Bachman says. May has the most unusual story. High above Mount Shasta sits pristine Castle Lake, where a large float in the middle of the lake supports a decades-long scientific research project. “I met Paula at a jam on the float out in the lake,” May says. “ I hadn’t played music in a long time and the band brought me back.” So, what’s with the name No Boys Aloud? “It started as a joke,” Reynolds said. “We took an internet poll to see if people liked the name, and they did. We are a band of women playing aloud with everything we have.” Ackerman Beck adds, “It’s about female energy. We love men. We want them in the audience being loud.” May says one of most important aspects of the group is how they

work together. “It’s a sharing atmosphere,” May says. “When you play with men it’s different. With No Boys Aloud, it’s feels more collaborative.” No Boys Aloud plays at local clubs and festivals, and donates time to charitable events. A recent huge feather in the band’s cap was being invited to be one of the opening bands at the September Merle Haggard concert for charity at the Siskiyou Golden Fair grounds in Yreka. Alas, several opening bands were rained out, including No Boys Aloud. Still, it was an honor and a testament to the band’s musical skills and popularity. They don’t have a CD yet, but with the talent and energy No Boys Aloud brings to the music scene, this band is definitely going to heard from loud and clear. • No Boys Aloud • (530) 925-2770

T he Argu s Brings High Qua lit y cr a ft cocktails to ch ico

Here’s some good news for Chicoans who like a fine drink to close out a bad or banner day: you don’t have to make it yourself anymore. No more digging around the fridge for an olive, muddling your way through, well, muddling, or begging a friend to come over to your hopefully-stocked home bar. Now, if you want a perfectly made Manhattan in a homey setting with good company, you can just go to The Argus. That’s what proprietor Scott Baldwin and manager Travis Baker are hoping you’ll do. They’ve opened The Argus to provide, as Baldwin puts it, “a comfortable spot for people who drink like adults.” The new bar in the heart of downtown Chico is lofty, with exposed brick walls, teak floors, and relaxing greens and greys punctuated with classic black. The patio in back is generous, with ivy-covered brick walls, cherry trees and a redwood fence that opens up whenever the occasion calls for it. In sum, it’s the new favorite bar of people who like to drink their cocktails slowly. And it’s an endeavor 15 years in the making. Baldwin, an entrepreneur, met Baker, a veteran of the upscale bar world, through a mutual friend when they were college students.

Baldwin went into engineering and Baker rose through the ranks of the San Diego bar scene, until Baldwin decided to take a sharp left turn and their goals aligned. “I’d been unsatisfied with what I’d been doing and I wanted to get out and do something different,” he explains. A friend suggested he pursue one of the bar licenses in town, and he realized a creative outlet was what he needed. Not only did he seek a project to call his own, he wanted a taproom he felt at home in, too. “I would walk into bars and just feel out of place because they’re student bars, but there are plenty of (non-student) people in town.” So, he called everyone who had a liquor license and asked them if they had a price. Knowing what Baker was up to in San Diego, he invited his friend to be the man behind the menu. Baker was eager for the chance. “People asked me more than once: ‘Why leave San Diego for Chico?’ My answer was always, ‘Why not?’” He sees a golden opportunity. “Sierra Nevada is a world class brewery,” he points out, “so4 continued on page 38

obviously this town knows quality. Why wouldn’t we be able to up the game in the bar world also? I think people deserve the opportunity to try new things.” New, old and ever changing: in addition to the 16 taps of craft brews, The Argus boasts a cocktail menu of classics, its own creations, and locally sourced specialties that change with the seasons. From the mint in your mojito to the lime wheel in your rickey, it’s all home grown and made from scratch. And well made, of course: these aren’t the kinds of bartenders that rely on an expensive label to do the job. For Baker and his staff, how the drink is prepared is 100 percent as important as what it’s made with. “You’re getting properly made drinks,” Baker says. “You don’t have weird pink cherries in your old fashioned. It’s made the way it’s supposed to be: with proper stirring and shaking techniques and proper measurements.” While savvy connoisseurs are always embraced, it’s a welcoming environment for cocktail novices, too. Baldwin says the Argus customer is anyone who likes to have fun in a comfortable environment. “Everyone focuses on the college kid,” Baker explains, “but they also focus on mass-produced beverages. I think we can teach people to drink better, by drinking a higher caliber cocktail.” Both are looking forward to being a part of the changing culture of Chico, and they’re not alone. Michael E. Hart, who owns of the part of the building The Argus moved into, is excited about what it and other new establishments like it represent. “I consider it to be one of many new additions that’s upgrading (the area),” Hart says. “It’s an exciting time for downtown Chico.” Having owned this portion of it for 17 years, Hart is happy to see high-caliber entrepreneurs working in the community. “(Baldwin) has been wonderful to work with, given his upscale nature and business acumen,” he says. “He’s

thoughtful and decent.” So if you’d like some thoughtfulness in your drink, and a comfortable, high caliber place to enjoy it, take a seat under a cherry tree at The Argus. •

Group Social S HA S TA P EER M E N TORI N G If success means knowing teenagers discover who they are and how to love themselves, then Sarah Hartley is all about it. As the coordinator for the Redding outpost of a state-sponsored peer mentoring program, Hartley invests hours in developing area junior high and high school-aged kids into drug- and alcohol-free leaders of tomorrow. The non-profit program, called Shasta Peer Mentoring, is different from other popular mentoring programs because it uses a youthto-youth approach rather than an adult/child relationship. Junior high mentees, called proteges, are paired with trained high school mentors. While any positive mentoring is a good thing, Hartley says, “Sometimes kids are more open to high schoolers closer to their age than to adults. They maybe need someone to just listen and be a friend. Adults, at least in the kids’ eyes, might be seen as fixing and advising.” Once a week during the school year, mentors visit seven sites where they gather in a group setting and work through drug prevention curriculum. Kids play games, participate in object lessons and discuss overarching themes and topics. Hartley tries to connect the education with proteges’ lives by pondering life plans, helping kids flesh out goals and dreams and consider how accountability and good choices will move them toward those plans.4 continued on page 42

november 2013 ENJOY | 41

While there is a real need for fostering power, autonomy and cultural competencies, the kids don’t always show up to mentoring thinking they are there to learn. Andrea Connelly, now 19 and a second-year student at Southern Oregon University, says she joined because it looked fun. “I saw a group playing a game when I was in seventh grade and I wanted to play, too.” What she discovered was a safe place, where it didn’t feel like the pressures and stresses of life were pushing down on her. She says she learned a lot about peer pressure, self-image and how to avoid drugs and alcohol. “It was just really good to have a community who would believe with you that it isn’t a good idea to do those things.” The experience marked her enough that she applied to be a mentor once in high school. Mentors must go through an application process that includes interviews, teacher recommendations and a high level of accountability, along with four to six hours of training. The program doesn’t always look for the traditional top student, star athlete or university-bound specimens, says Hartley. “Often our best mentors are kids who have something to offer after struggling through their own experiences of bullying or mess-ups.” Mentors are paired with proteges and spend 20 minutes of every meeting having one-on-one “talk time” where kids can talk about life, do homework together or just play games. “Just knowing they have someone to care about them, that helps the kids make decisions for the rest of their lives,” says Hartley. And while beneficial for the proteges, Connelly will attest she received at least as much, if not more, from her time as a mentor. “At first, it was way out of my comfort zone,” she says, but “I learned a lot, especially about leadership and teamwork. In life, you need to learn to work with others or things won’t go well, such as being flexible, aiming your team in a direction, knowing when to step back, and evaluating what kind of team you have to work with—those are all good things.” Change with budding teenagers is incremental and Hartley notes that one of the toughest parts of what she does is not knowing for several years if she’s forged a lasting impact. But, she says, “If I get to see a teen move from sullen or shy or angsty to engaged, smiling and laughing—that does it for me.” • For more information about financially supporting the Shasta Peer Mentoring program or enrolling your child, contact your local junior high or high school or call the local chapter office: The Chemical People (530) 241-5958

Howard Bagley, who is in his 80s, got into jazz as a kid growing up in New York City and still digs it. One of his favorites? Paul Senn, a young Redding cat who picked up the trumpet when he was 7 and currently plays in three bands. Their North State connection? The Rivercity Jazz Society. Formed in 1985 to support the Shasta Dixieland Festival, the society continued on after the weekend-long, multi-venue Dixieland festivals fell victim to declining attendance and rising costs. The society toned things down, choosing instead to focus on live performances on the third Sunday of the month at the Redding Elks Lodge, while expanding the program to include more jazz styles. Traditional or New Orleans-style jazz is still a focus, says charter member Al Sateren, but the monthly concerts are no stranger to big band and swing as well. “It’s the kind of music I was raised with. All

the big bands in the old days: Goodman, Lawrence Welk. If they get a chance to be exposed to it, even country swing. We’ve had inclinations to present some of that music, too,” Sateren says. Music is a big part of the Rivercity Jazz Society, but the majority of the group’s roughly 120 members like to kick up their heels, as well. “There’s a lot of dancing,” says Pete Westler, the society’s president. “Over two-thirds of the people dance. The Elks Lodge is a real nice room for dancing.” Westler was drawn to the society after he retired in 1985 from a business of manufacturing and selling Ford Model A parts and his wife, Vi, wanted to take in one of the big Dixieland festivals that were held at hotels on Hilltop Drive. Both became jazz fanatics and began going to festivals in Redding, Sacramento, Eureka and Medford, Ore. Pete and Vi are Rivercity4 continued on page 46

“ Music, of course, is what I hear and something that I more or less live by. It’s not an occupation or profession, it’s a compulsion.” — Duke Ellington

Jazz Society board members now and thoroughly enjoy the monthly shows. Bagley’s a board member, as well, and has been part of the society for “15 or 20 years.” His love of jazz goes back even further. “I’ve been into jazz all my life,” he says. “I grew up in New York City and would go down to a joint called Central Plaza. I’d get free tickets through the Navy USO. I couldn’t believe the jazz scene going on down there.” The scene in Redding is not too shabby either, thanks in part to the society’s efforts to promote a love of jazz among young musicians. It does that by supporting middle and high school music programs and providing summer jazz camp scholarships to promising players. “If kids don’t start playing, pretty soon the music goes away,” says Steve Fisher, a saxophonist and leader of the popular Straight Ahead Big Band. Senn, 29, is an excellent example. Thanks to the society, the accomplished trumpet player was able to work with professional musicians at a summer camp organized by the Sacramento Traditional Jazz Society, starting at age 13 and continuing for five sessions until he reached the age limit. “It was a lot of fun,” Senn says of the opportunity to study with pros and perform alongside some of the top students in the state. “It’s hard to find kids around here with the competitive fire who want to be jazz musicians.” Of course, as the grandson of Rivercity Jazz Society founding members Gene and Shorty Chord, Senn’s fascination with jazz had a head start. Gene Chord was a trumpet player and his wife, Shorty, joined him in his band, The Dixie Chords.

“They dragged me around to all their gigs, and to the Dixieland Jazz Festival when it began,” says Senn, who fondly recalls a snapshot of him at age 6, standing on a stage and singing “What a Wonderful World.” Senn now fronts his own group, The Original Senn Band, and plays with Fisher’s Straight Ahead Big Band and the Shasta College Jazz Big Band. Senn will join forces with Fisher and company for the society’s December concert on the 15th and again on Dec. 31 at the Red Lion Hotel for Fisher’s second annual “New York New Year’s Eve” party. The party starts at 6, the big Times Square ball drops at 9 (on TV screens) and the fun ends at 10 pm so folks can go home or on to the next party. •

After contentious town hall meetings in 2009, Chico’s then-Assistant City Manager, John Rucker, turned for help to the communications faculty at Chico State University. It turns out many folks do not know how to disagree without being disagreeable. “He came to us because he was concerned about the tone at many of the city council meetings and asked how we could train the next generation to do better,” says Zach Justus, an assistant professor of communication who coordinates the university’s public speaking courses.4 continued on page 50 november 2013 ENJOY | 49

After consultation with city officials, Justus and his colleagues created the Great Debate & Civic Expo, a day-long event held each semester to engage students and community members on hot-button topics. “We want to demonstrate to students that they can have a discussion without shouting,” says Justus. “There’s a real emphasis on civility. We really hope this serves as a model of civil and civic discourse.” The event represents the culmination of semester-length student research and presentations on the chosen theme. Faculty members tie into community and campus events and bring speakers into the classroom to build on existing resources and excite and motivate students about the topic and events. Topic selection is collaborative, and each semester, faculty members, students and representatives from local government meet to discuss and decide the next semester’s theme, which for Fall 2013 is mental health and policies that affect California. “The community is also heavily involved in choosing,” says Justus. “It’s really produced the best results for us.” The Great Debate & Civic Expo has grown from 300 student participants at its first event in 2010 to more than 2,000 students and several hundred community members each semester. Butte and Shasta Colleges joined as partners in Fall 2010 and Spring 2013, respectively. “These events provide students with the confidence that they can participate in meaningful discussions about important issues that affect our communities,” says Shelly Presnell, Communication Studies faculty coordinator at Shasta College. “They leave the event feeling empowered by the knowledge that they can make a difference.” Although the event is non-partisan, Justus says it draws attendance from the Republican and Democratic parties as well as other community groups, offering tremendous value to those who sit across the table from others who hold a different point of view. “There are lots of places to see hot-button issues talked about, but not many places to see those things talked about well,” says Justus. “If people want to see something that is a real departure from what they would find on cable news, this is the place to come.” • 530.898.5883

With $2,500 in his pocket a few years out of high school, Jeff Garrett didn’t have his sights set on a fixer-upper hot rod or a lavish vacation overseas — it was a hot dog stand that caught his eye. After working for restaurants and a gas station, he’d scraped together enough money to open Indognito in east Redding about 22 years ago. “It was out of business, so I offered $1,500 for the equipment and I had $1,000 to buy food and start it up,” Garrett says. “I was able to hire an employee, and we opened for breakfast and lunch. I hired one more person and we opened for dinner.”4 continued on page 56

november 2013 ENJOY | 55

He’s owned a lot of businesses since then, and today, Garrett sits behind a mahogany desk, strategizing the growth of his own franchise. Lumberjacks restaurant in Redding now has nine sister stores in the western United States. Five others are looking to open restaurants now, and he hopes to establish 50 to 100 before retiring. He employs more than 80 people in Shasta County, and close to 400 altogether. The road to franchise development, however, has had all sorts of twists and turns. In 1993, Garrett sold Indognito and bought California Cattle Company on Cypress Avenue. “I didn’t have enough money to change the signs, so it was Jeff ’s California Cattle Company,” he says. He gutted and remodeled the place about 10 years ago, and it gets busier every month. For this, Garrett is quick to credit his employees, some of whom have been there for more than a decade. “The employees make your business,” Garrett says. “Everybody has decent food. But here, they see your blue car, the cook starts your breakfast and the waitress has your coffee when you walk in the door.”4 continued on page 58

And no matter how many restaurants he develops, California Cattle Company will always hold a special place in his heart — it’s where he met his wife, Susan, some 20 years ago. He hired her as a waitress, then took her as his bride more than 13 years ago. The couple have two daughters— Madylin, 10, and Abigail, 6. The Garretts have owned a diverse array of establishments over the years — they owned the Impulse nightclub, along with Quizno’s, Jimboy’s, Planet Burgers and Planet Java. In 1999, they opened Jeff ’s California Cattle Company 2 in the space where Mary’s Pizza Shack now resides in downtown Redding. They own Cindy Lou’s minimart in Cottonwood and Duke’s Steakhouse on Churn Creek Road, which he operated for several years as a Cool Hand Luke’s franchise before making it independent. But the restaurant that he hopes will evolve into a retirement plan is Lumberjacks, formerly a Lyon’s Restaurant that he bought out of bankruptcy 12 years ago. “It took my wife and me six months to think of a name: ‘Lumberjacks, Where the Big Boys Eat.’ I knew it was the perfect name for a restaurant,” he says. His experience working with other franchises has helped him fine-tune his own. “I’ve been in a few franchises and I know what not to do,” he says. “It was always franchisee against franchisor, and that’s not how we are. I make them like a part of a family. I take other people’s advice. People see things I don’t always see.”

Day in the life of Diabetes 2013

The vision of American Diabetes Association (ADA) is a life free of diabetes and all of its burdens. American Diabetes Month in November is an important element in this effort, with programs designed to focus the nation’s attention on the issues surrounding diabetes and the many people who are impacted by the disease. The ADA has compiled recent statistics on diabetes and its toll on health: • Two out of three people with diabetes die from heart attack or stroke. • Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure. • Diabetes is the leading cause of new cases of blindness among adults. • The rate of amputation for people with diabetes is 10 times higher than for people without diabetes. • About 60-70 percent of people with diabetes have middle to severe forms of nerve damage that could result in pain in the feet and hands, slowed digestion, sexual dysfunction, and other nerve problems. • Nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes, another 79 million have pre-diabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. • The ADA estimates that the total cost of diagnosed diabetes in the United States is $245 billion. Early detection and treatment of diabetes can decrease the risk of developing the complications of diabetes. The following symptoms of diabetes are typical. However,

some people with type 2 diabetes have symptoms so mild that they go unnoticed. Common symptoms of diabetes: urinating often, feeling very thirsty, feeling very hungry - even though you are eating - extreme fatigue, blurry vision, cuts/bruises that are slow to heal, weight loss - even though you are eating more (type 1) - weight gain, tingling, pain, or numbness in the hands/feet (type 2). If you are experiencing any of these symptoms contact your primary care physician. Greenville Rancheria’s diabetes staff - Dr. Cox, Jennifer Gagliano (Red Bluff Community Health Representative), Kelly Cole, RN, and Stacey Prior (Greenville Community Health Representative) - holds a “Diabetes Focus Group for Natives” once a month at the Red Bluff and Greenville Clinics. The Diabetes Focus Group is a highly effective program that helps Native Americans develop self-managed strategies for diabetes prevention and treatment. Native Americans working with their support network and health care providers can take steps to control the disease, lower the risk of complications and premature death, and can take steps to protect and improve their health problems. Native Americans are at a greater risk at having diabetes and are a major part of the epidemic of Type 2 diabetes. One in seven Native Americans have diabetes, and diabetes mortality rates are four times higher in Native communities than in United States population, per “SEVA Foundation”. Knowing your risks, gives you power!

When he and Lumberjacks partner Scott Bailey sell a Lumberjacks franchise, a team goes to the site to get it rolling. “We do everything from helping the guy do buildout to hiring to ordering to marketing to day-to-day operations,” he says. In addition to the Redding flagship, Lumberjacks is also open in Sacramento (two locations), Grass Valley, Yuba City, Willits, Susanville, Petaluma, Stockton and Las Vegas. Though each of Garrett’s restaurants has a distinct personality, he strives to ensure that their core qualities are the same: Quality meals, clean facilities, friendly staff. “If you don’t take care of your customers, they won’t come back. You can’t have trash in the parking lot, people walking in the front door and no one saying ‘hi,’ dishes or silverware that aren’t clean. So many things can go wrong,” he says. And although business ownership isn’t for the weak of heart, he says he is living his dream. “You’ve got to take chances. Bill Gates and Apple took chances — some good and some bad - but it worked out pretty good for them,” Garrett says. “This gets me out of bed and I can’t wait to get in and start a new day.” •

t h e q u a i n t to wn o f E t n a Over the mountains from Yreka, the line of Highway 3 wanders a peaceful path through the green and golden fields of the Scott Valley. Cows and deer meander through the same fields, while mountains surround and shield those who live here. Hudson Bay Company trappers walked here, declaring it a rich place for beaver. The valley changed with the discovery of gold. The quiet gave way to miners, who established a town they named after their character, Rough and Ready. Today, the city—now named Etna—stands in quiet vigil at the south end of the valley. The miners’ voices are echoes in the trees, as the streets are occupied now with farmers and the families who make this home. Schoolchildren line up at the ice cream counter at the Scott Valley Drug store. Couples walk past the Etna Museum, which was built as the town hall, but has also served as the fire hall, library and jail over the past century. Historical homes retain the feeling of Etna’s history. Rough and Ready was home to a flour mill, built in 1867 to provide supplies for the miners. Nearby, another settlement had been home to a mill called Aetna Mills. Flooding five years earlier caused the businesses of Aetna Mills to move to the neighboring community. In 1870, with the realization that having several towns named “Rough and Ready” in California was confusing, the town adopted the name Etna Mills, shortening it to Etna in the 1930s.4 continued on page 62

In 1897, the Collier Hotel was built as a brothel. The two-story, sixbedroom building was converted in the 1930s to a boarding house. In the 1960s, it became a private home, then a vacation rental. In 2012, the building became a hotel, now a place for travelers exploring the community. Its white balcony wraps around the upper story, giving the visitor a view of the gold rush community, which lies in walking distance. Its large windows and hardwood floors bring to reality the shadows of the past. Charles Kappler came to the Scott Valley, buying a brewery in 1868 and moving it to Etna in 1872. Kappler’s four horse-drawn wagons delivered beer through the region, bringing in over a quarter-million dollars each year. The brewery was successful until Prohibition shut it down in 1920. In 1990, Etna Brewery was rebuilt and opened on the site of the original bottling plant, near the location of the first town brewery. The addition of a pub now brings award-winning beers and food to the area, including its famous Blackberry Blonde brew. Etna is preserved in this hidden valley of Siskiyou County. Here trappers, miners, stagecoach drivers, and cowboys have given way to ranchers, farmers and entrepreneurs, but the spirit of individuality and hard work remains. The same Marble Mountains, which loomed over her a century ago, look down on her. The ribbon of Highway 3 continues, leaving for the Trinity Mountains, yet never forgets the gold of this small town. •

NS E X I V E VINTAG Dave Anderson will never forget the moment that well-known Ventura County artist Chris Martinez said the words that would change his world: “You, Dave, can make a living as an artist.” Anderson had always loved art. His earliest artistic expressions were childhood sketches of Charlie Brown and Garfield comics from the Sunday paper. But making a living in art was something he hadn’t believed was possible until his mentor and friend uttered the words.


Martinez became aware of Anderson’s raw talent upon seeing his portfolio. Dave Anderson’s wife, Patty, took the initiative to share her husband’s portfolio with Martinez, and essentially propelled his career as a professional artist. Even now, Anderson admits he is not sure he would be where he is in his career today if it weren’t for his wife’s belief in his talent. Anderson had formerly worked as a fisherman and was always4 continued on page 66 november 2013 ENJOY | 65

g n i s u f n i r o …passiongef concepts vinta

grateful that he was able to turn one of his passions into a profession. Being surrounded by beautiful sunsets, dolphins and seagulls was naturally inspiring for a man who, at his core, has always been an artist. He often incorporated fish into his art, painted signs and designed T-shirts, in addition to creating pieces for family members while working as a fisherman. His first professional art job, however, came when the marina he worked out of was interested in hiring an artist to paint a photo board. Anderson’s rough sketch on a sheet of lined paper quickly motivated the marina to offer Anderson his first paid job as an artist. During trips between Ventura Harbor and San Francisco, Anderson’s boat was sometimes delayed in the Bay Area due to inclement weather. These extended layovers created the perfect environment for Anderson to hone his artistic abilities. Anderson often asked some of the caricaturists who made their living drawing tourists if he could draw behind them, to better understand their techniques. Many were annoyed at his requests, but one artist, Tang, acquiesced and took Anderson under his wing. Something magical happened when Tang allowed Anderson to set up his easel behind him. Crowds began to gather, and people became intrigued with the idea of being drawn by two artists simultaneously. It brought more business to Tang and more artistic experience to Anderson. “I learned to think outside the gallery – to be fearless, like Tang – to paint right there in the street, in public.” Old horror films, vintage comics, Spanish art, and El Día de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) are powerful influences for Anderson. Using acrylics, pencil, pen and ink and watercolor, he frequently paints iconic celebrities like Bob Marley, Frank Sinatra and Elvira. Anderson is often commissioned to paint a client into a piece alongside their favorite celebrity, creating the perfect hybrid of personalization and pop culture infusion. He also completes classic portrait work. Anderson spends weekdays painting in his studio at The Jolly Giant Flea Market. On weekends, he sells his works at his booth alongside two other artists who he has invited to share his space – and the spotlight. These artists paint, draw or sketch live models when they are not busy selling one-of-a-kind art pieces and taking orders for 66 | Enjoy November 2013

commissioned work. Brianna Benes, who specializes in fantasy and tattoo concept sketches, and Jay, a character artist, are learning the ropes of creating outside of the box. Anderson has never forgotten the time and effort his mentors put into developing his talents. Years later, he is grateful to mentor others who share his passion for thinking outside of the traditional art gallery. Rochelle Author, owner of Vintage Vixens Boutique and Salon in downtown Redding, displays and sells Anderson’s work. Author uses her expertise in vintage fashion, coupled with her stylists’ passion for vintage hairstyles and make-up, to create what could only be called a divinely artistic “meeting of the minds.” Through Vintage Vixens, Anderson pairs up with models to create unique pin-up inspired art pieces, and a remarkable experience for anyone who has the blessing of witnessing these creative moments in time. Anderson’s work is also for sale at Oregon Street Antique Mall in downtown Redding. He has participated in art demonstrations at events such as ARTsMART and The Twin Bridges Antiques and Collectibles Show at the Mt. Shasta Mall. His passion for infusing vintage concepts into his work has gained him a following with local vintage enthusiasts and fellow artists alike. He’s also happy to create commissioned pieces, not only because he wants his clients to have something unique to call their own, but because he recognizes the value of stepping out of his comfort zone. “To grow as an artist, you can’t limit yourself where mediums and themes are concerned. You have to look ahead, be willing to trade your art with others, and recognize the power of word-of-mouth. But most of all, you have to be willing to think outside of the box.”•

«Bird House» F o r o n e fa m i ly, T u r k e y T i m e i s A l l t h e T i m e For most folks who call the North State home, November is turkey time. Images of the colorful, gawky birds are abundant during the fall and, of course, turkey is the traditional centerpiece on the Thanksgiving table. For the Hilleberts, every month is turkey time— thanks to Sweet Tweet, a wild turkey who adopted the Millville family last year. Sweet Tweet, who also goes by Big Bird and Teet Teet, is a tom, and he’s got the somewhat grotesque multicolored head and wattle—along with the radiant tail feathers—to prove it. He’s also got the attitude, according to Laurelie Hillebert, who says one need only watch Sweet Tweet in the spring, when he shows off for every gal he sees. Sweet

Tweet, it appears, has convinced himself he’s a human. His confusion can be traced back to the spring of 2012, when Dave Hillebert was mowing for fire protection on the family’s 10 acres. During one pass, a hen turkey flew off to reveal a nest of eggs that was now vulnerable to the weather and predators. Worried that the turkey had abandoned her nest, Laurelie took an egg and positioned it under a lamp in the hopes her children would get to watch it hatch. Lo and behold, Sweet Tweet emerged. Only Sweet Tweet himself can say whether he bonded with people—for the time being, his official comments consist of gobbles—but it’s clear he enjoys his surroundings enough to hang around.4 continued on page 70

Dawson, 7, and Liana, 10, are happy to have his company. Charlie, the big, friendly golden retriever, doesn’t seem to care either way. As an adolescent, Sweet Tweet followed the kids wherever they went. If he found something shiny or otherwise interesting, he’d swipe it and run away. Needless to say, that particular trick proved to be problematic when he started grabbing scavenger game clues and running away. The turkey developed an interest in sports, too. When one of the kids bounces a red ball his way, he’ll kick it back like a prehistoric soccer player. Sometimes he’ll assume a more defensive posture and peck at the ball. As a young adult, however, he elevated his game a notch and began attempting to dominate other males. Dawson had to arm himself with a squirt gun and use it to maintain a sense of order in the yard. Dave Hillebert simply uses a garden hose to remind Sweet Tweet where he actually belongs in the pecking order. During the day, Sweet Tweet opts to kibitz with the Hilleberts’ chickens inside a fenced fruit orchard. In

the evenings, he alternates between roosting in a tree or on the roof of the Hillebert home. In the mornings, he’s usually standing on the patio, next to Charlie, and watching as the family gathers for breakfast. Sweet Tweet’s presence also was felt when Liana turned 10 and her parents celebrated her birthday with a turkey-themed party, including turkey-decorated cupcakes, a turkey tablecloth and a turkey vegetable platter. Luckily for Sweet Tweet, there’s no chance of him actually joining the family for a holiday meal this month since the Hilleberts are vegetarians. •

R Step into the new Tehama Country Visitor Center in Red Bluff and you’ll find that people are valued just as much as the showcase of remarkable places to experience in Tehama County. A project of North Valley Services, a nonprofit organization with a mission to provide opportunities to people with disabilities in the environment of their choice, the new visitor center spotlights clients’ ability to serve their community while it celebrates the olives of Corning, the wines of Manton or the county’s crown jewel, Lassen Volcanic National Park.4 continued on page 76

“I’ve spent most of my life here, and I am learning so much about places I’ve never seen…”

CEO Lynn DeFreece has been with NVS for 39 years and is always on the lookout for new ventures to integrate the people he works with into mainstream society. He tries to meet “the need to be more involved in the community, the need to be engaged.” Three years ago, the genesis of the visitor center developed as DeFreece, a former board member of the Red Bluff-Tehama County Chamber of Commerce, took note of what was happening within the Tehama County Branding Project, a movement to develop quality of life through tourism and increased revenue streams. As community members began creating events and infrastructure based on the myriad experiences that make Tehama County unique and worth visiting, DeFreece started paying attention to how the people of North Valley Services could become involved. He started developing his clients to be ambassadors. “The purpose behind it is not to teach them how to be a tourist person, but to show them how to work,” he says of their new efforts. “Investing in them is key,” DeFreece says of the people he works with. “That’s what we’re doing. We’re investing in them in attempt to make things better.” The Tehama Country Visitor Center is an apex of many people’s desires to make many things better: to enhance the tourist experience, to promote the recreational, agricultural and retail experiences unique

to the area, and to offer a new line of work to people who often struggle for inclusion. For Crystal Rogers, the visitor center is an opportunity to develop skills to interact with the public in a way she never has. She’s held a job before, but it was behind a desk with limited face to face interaction. “Here you actually get out, meet people and give tours,” the 31-yearold says with confidence. She also gets to develop an understanding of her community while earning a paycheck. It’s now her job to know about places like Lassen Park and The Tehama Trail, an agri-tourism endeavor. While she stresses that she’s still learning everything, her skills have developed well enough that she became a television spokesperson for the center when it was featured on the local news during the grand opening celebration in August. The tour she offers winds through various eye-catching and interactive exhibits developed locally by Joe and Heather Vine and staff at the Copy Center. A highlight is a partial replica of the Chapter House at the Abbey of New Clairvaux in Vina. An actual sacred stone accompanies the exhibit. “I’ve spent most of my life here, and I am learning so much about places I’ve never seen,” says Linda Bullock, manager of the center and front house manager of the historic State Theatre for the Arts in downtown Red Bluff. She’s excited to expand job opportunities for

NVS clients to the State Theatre and finds promoting both places easier with their help. Formerly several different restaurants, the visitors center had sat vacant and in disrepair for years. Using money earned through various income generating ventures, North Valley Services bought and renovated the building and has plans to expand to include a picnic area and a dog run for people traveling with pets. The large photographic background at the visitors center entry invites guests to “Reach your peak!” At the ready with a warm welcome are some of the community’s most inspired citizens eager to make sure you enjoy your visit. “Giving somebody a little worth creates self esteem, which creates opportunity,” says DeFreece. Opportunity awaits all at the Tehama Country Visitor Center. • Tehama Country Visitor Center 250 Antelope Blvd., Red Bluff (530) 529-0133 •

Strictly Ballroom b a l l ro o m da n c i n g i n t h e n o r t h s tat e Lace up those dancing shoes! The music has begun. Ballroom dancers of all ages have found a variety of venues in the North State where local bands offer up sweet, jazzy, classical and just plain good dance tunes several times every month. Some dancers enjoy the scene on Friday and Saturday nights at establishments like Red Lion, while many others have found their social connections at senior centers, Elks and Moose lodges, and Caldwell Park Recreation Center. Evenings at several locations begin with instruction on a specific dance style before social dancing gets under way. River City Jazz Society and many ballroom dance enthusiasts consider themselves one happy family. One recent evening, Out of the Blue, a North State dance band, provided music at a backyard venue on the banks of the Sacramento River where musicians and dancers enjoyed a potluck dinner and dancing while the setting sun cast a golden glow over all. At an earlier event in the summer at the same location, river rafters paused along the bank to enjoy the music and applaud the dancers.4 continued on page 80

“Ballroom is two people dancing together to … music, touching in perfect harmony.” Kathy Babcock is well known for her choreography and dance instruction for the cast of Club Cougar, the dinner/dance theater put on every spring by Foothill High School. She has been a dance instructor for 24 years through Redding Parks and Recreation and now her own dance company, Step by Step School of Ballroom Dance. “The good news is it does not take years to become a comfortable social dancer,” Babcock says. “Dancing makes for a romantic ‘date night’ because you are face-to-face and in the arms of your date, moving in harmony to the rhythms of whatever style of dance you choose. You can glide to the lilting beat of the waltz, sway to the jazzy rhythms of the swing, or undulate to the intoxicating pulse of the salsa.” Aaron Anderson has taken dance instruction for several years and often partners with Babcock to demonstrate dance moves during her classes. He started dancing for health, but fell in love with dance. He loves the “lyrical joy of a well-crafted dance.” Anderson and his wife, Christine, frequent local venues, but often Aaron will go alone to serve as a dance partner at senior center dances for single ladies and those whose spouses don’t dance. Romona Bowling started dancing 10 years ago after her husband passed away. It was a way to meet people and stay active. Now she is a friendly focal point at most local venues. She and partner Lyle Jonas seek out dance venues as they travel around the country. She has often been asked to help with instruction at Redding area dances because, they tell her, “You are having such a good time.” She makes a point that these occasions are friendly and non-threatening, welcoming to everyone. Judy Hutcheson Tucker of the Just Dance Club says, “The dance community has become a big family. Some of us have been friends for 30 years. Not only do we dance together, we play together.” “Let’s Dance” was started in 2010 and focuses on promoting West Coast Swing and other dance styles in the North State and having fun with dance. Sponsored by Redding Parks and Recreation, dancers (primarily a younger crowd) meet every Saturday at Caldwell Park Recreation Center. Recreation Supervisor Jennifer Moore says, “The lessons are casual and easy to follow with emphasis on enjoying dance rather than looking perfect.”

Over the past three decades, John Hiatt has emerged as one of America’s most inventive songwriters, covering rock, blues, acoustic, folk and new wave. With 11 Grammy nominations and 24 albums to his name, he was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters’ Hall of Fame in 2008. In the late 1980s, both Jeff Healey (“Angel Eyes”) and Bonnie Raitt (“Thing Called Love”) hit platinum with Hiatt-penned tunes, and more recently, Eric Clapton and B.B. King chose Hiatt’s “Riding with the King” as the title track for their Grammy-winning CD.4 continued on page 84

november 2013 ENJOY | 83

Born and raised in Indiana, Hiatt turned to music at a young age. “I first picked up a guitar at age 11, and within 6 months, I started a band with two other kids in my school,” he says. “I started to write songs right away. While my buddies were up learning Jimi Hendrix solos, I was sitting up in my room writing songs. My early writer influences were pretty much song writers. Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen were my two favorites initially. I locked myself in my room for a year and listened to ‘Visions of Johanna’ over and over. Mississippi John Hurt was a big influence on me, that country blues thing and there was TajMahal. Through the English groups, oddly enough, such as the Yardbirds, I started to get into more electric blues, Muddy Waters, the Chicago stuff. I also loved Mitch Ryder and the pop rock records of the day.”

“I first picked up a guitar at age 11, and within 6 months, I started a band with two other kids in my school," he says. “I started to write songs right away. While my buddies were up learning



solos, I was sitting up in my room writing songs. At age 18, Hiatt packed up his Corvair and drove south to Music City. He was hired by a publishing company as a songwriter for $25 a week and wrote 250 songs over the next five years. “If I’d been a country songwriter, I would have learned a lot more, and quicker, but I was kind of a round peg in a square hole. But I learned a lot, and I fell in love with Nashville pretty much immediately. It was a whole other world. It was only 300 miles south of Indianapolis, but

84 | Enjoy November 2013

culturally it was just completely different.” His first successful composition was “Sure As I’m Sitting Here,” which Three Dog Night took to the Top 20 in 1973. Over the course of the next decade, Hiatt experimented with a number of styles, from folk to country to New Wave rock. About his writing, he says, “The music dictates the melody and the melody will hopefully pry something loose that resembles a lyric. Whatever’s sort of floating around in my head tends to get shaken loose. Sometimes there’s shards of about 20 different stories that you kind of put together. And because I’m a songwriter, rather than a hotshot lead guitar player, I’ll get a chord structure or a little riff or something and then I’ll start singing something to it.” The biggest turning point in his career came in 1987, when he went into the studio for only four days with a group that consisted of Ry Cooder on guitar, Jim Keltner on drums and Nick Lowe on bass. The sound was a stripped-down and seamless blend of country, folk, blues and rock. The resulting album, “Bring the Family,” has since been hailed as a roots-music classic. It includes some of Hiatt’s most enduring songs, including the piano-driven ballad “Have a Little Faith” and the galloping “Memphis in the Meantime.” His next album, “Slow Turning,” was almost as well-received. Since then, he has ventured into bluegrass and pure blues, and has contributed songs to tribute albums to Muddy Waters and Mississippi John Hurt. At the same time, more musicians began coming after Hiatt’s extensive song catalog. In concert, Bruce Springsteen occasionally plays “Across the Borderline,” which Hiatt had written for the 1981 movie “The Border.” And, Dylan covered his “The Usual” on the soundtrack of the movie “Hearts of Fire.” Last year’s release of his CD, “Mystic Pinball,” marked his fourth CD in four years. After 40 years, Hiatt seems to be aging like a proverbial wine, getting better as time passes. “I still love playing so much,” he says. “It’s like the three legs of a stool for me: songwriting, recording and performing. I will do this as long as I’m able to.” • An Acoustic Evening with John Hiatt and Lyle Lovett at Laxson Auditorium • November 14

Kimberly Carlson’s debut novel, Out of the Shadows,

received a 2012 IPPY Gold Medal for Best Fiction of the West Pacific from the Independent Publisher Book Awards. Enjoy: How long have you been writing? Kimberly: I started writing during my undergraduate years when I was in Nashville. At first, it was more poetry, but then I fell in love with story and decided to get a degree in English. I have been writing seriously since my 20s. Enjoy: What is your genre and why did you choose it? Kimberly: Literary fiction or modern general fiction are the terms used by the publishing world. I started to love reading and writing in school and didn’t even know the term ‘genre.’ I was reading Faulkner, Chopin and Wharton. I guess you could say the genre chose me, because those are the books I read and try to emulate. Enjoy: What inspires you? Kimberly: Literature inspires me. I’m deeply moved by books. They’ve affected my life in positive ways. Life itself inspires me— my personal past, my sufferings, pains and joys, my family and my children. Lastly, imagination—muse or collective unconsciousness— inspires me. Enjoy: I know you have young children. How do you balance writing and family life? Kimberly: I think for most women writers who are mothers, it’s still one of the biggest challenges. I’m a morning person, and that’s when I do a lot of my thinking, so I write in the morning when my children are sleeping. Other times, I’ll have my husband or my mom take them out. Learning to value what you’re doing and making time for it is critical. Writing is one of those things you can easily say, ‘Oh, I’ll do it tomorrow.’ 86 | Enjoy November 2013

Enjoy: Describe your writing process. Kimberly: Depending on book marketing or other demands, sometimes I only have 20 minutes to write. Saying I’m going to write before I check my e-mail, before I take a shower, before I do a load of laundry helps. It has to be first on my list. In terms of process, I have an idea that has been fermenting in my brain, rolling around in my gut, and I’ve learned to go with it. The process is making sure I value the time. No one is going to do it for me. Enjoy: You not only self-published your book but you started your own company, First Snow Publishing House. Tell us about that journey. Kimberly: When the recession hit, the New York publishing world stopped taking new authors unless it was genre fiction (like the whole vampire craze). E-books really took off, in part, because it’s harder to sell general fiction. Today, writers have to be their own marketers. I’m just amazed at what I was capable of accomplishing. I hired a professional graphic designer, editor and proofreader. I made some mistakes, but I’ve learned a lot about the publishing world. Enjoy: What’s next? Kimberly: I’m currently recording my own audio book, and an audio publishing house has picked it up. They work with iTunes and and will do all the packaging and marketing for me. Enjoy: What advice do you have for new writers? Kimberly: Read. I think reading is the finest teacher for any writer, new or old. Also, surround yourself with people who believe in you. •

Cindy Martinusen Coloma is the author of 16 books, numerous articles, short stories and plays. Her novels have been translated into six languages and she is the co-founder of the Quills of Faith writers group. Enjoy: How long have you been writing? Cindy: I wrote stories as a kid, including my first novel at 12. And at 18, I was writing plays for my church and also pursuing fiction and articles. I was submitting a lot of work, and although I had a play published in 1991, there was a lot of rejection. My first book contract was in 1998. Enjoy: How did you bounce back from that rejection to become a successful author? Cindy: Having writer-friends has helped tremendously. I had gone to a (Redding) Writers Forum meeting at age 23. They were talking about conferences, so I would create things that had an annual deadline and take them to conferences, where I met a lot of other writers. I also did online critiques and writers’ groups. Enjoy: What is your genre and why did you choose it? Cindy: It’s hard for me to stay within one genre because my interests are diverse. My first three books are contemporary mystery. I have written three Young Adult novels, non-fiction books, and lately I’ve been doing more collaboration. Currently, I am seeking a publisher for a YA supernatural fiction book I am writing with my daughter and recently I was the ghostwriter of a crime drama with a legal news analyst. Enjoy: What inspires you? Cindy: I get ideas from everywhere—something on the news, TED talks, questions I have or something from one of my children. It’s hard for me not to write all the time. I have way too many ideas!

Enjoy: What is your writing process and how do you balance it with family life? Cindy: It’s constantly changing. I haven’t quite found that balance yet. I work about 15 to 20 hours a week right now, but that will increase to over 50 or more a week when a deadline is pressing. I write late at night often, too. It’s sort of a “what works today” scenario. As my children get older, I’ll get back to a regular schedule. Enjoy: What can you say about traditional publishing vs. selfpublishing? Cindy: Thomas Nelson, an imprint of Harper Collins, has been my publisher for the last eight years. With traditional publishing houses, you get an advance. However, if your sales aren’t good, you may not have a future there. It’s harder to get a traditional publisher today. I think the drawbacks and the perks have kind of equaled out between traditional and self-publishing, which is a viable option if people understand the amount of marketing they need to do. Enjoy: What advice do you have for new writers? Cindy: First, find a group. Writers Forum is excellent; our group, Quills of Faith, is great. Attend conferences—they push you to the next level to decide if you want to make it a career. I’ve had friends go to conferences and decide they didn’t want to be a writer. That’s helpful to know. Most importantly, writers of every level need to study the writing craft. I still read writing books and study other writers’ works. People often work more toward getting a book done, trying to find an agent or getting published (and now self-published), but they don’t work at writing well. •

There is a wonderful medley of fall flavors in this easy and delicious chicken dish. Flavors of pear, toasted walnuts and leeks add great aroma to the quick pan sauce. The tasty “secret” in the sauce is the chutney. You can use either the Major Grey Chutney or the Carmelized Onions. Either one will add a bit of spice with a unique blend of sweet and sour flavors, and makes a great accompaniment to roasted meats and chicken. Serve this chicken dish topped with the pan sauce alongside a serving of healthy quinoa or wild rice and your favorite winter greens. Enjoy.

90 | Enjoy November 2013

Chicken with Pears, Chutney and Leeks serves 4 ingredients 1 large leek, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced 4 tsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided 4 large boneless, skinless chicken thighs, (about 1 ½ lbs), trimmed (substitute chicken breasts if preferred) ¾ tsp salt, divided ½ tsp freshly ground pepper, divided

2 large firm ripe pears, peeled (if you prefer) and diced ¾ c reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided 2 tsp cornstarch 2 T Crosse & Blackwell’s Major Grey or Carmelized Onion Chutney ¼ c chopped walnuts, toasted 1 green onion, thinly sliced for garnish

PREPARATION 1 | Place sliced leek in a colander; rinse and drain well. 2 | Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over a medium-high heat. Season the chicken

with ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook until golden brown and no longer pink in the center, usually 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. 3 | Reduce heat to medium and add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil to the pan. Add the leek and cook, stirring, until beginning to brown and soften, about 2 minutes. Add pear and ¼ cup broth; simmer until the pear is soft and the broth is reduced, about 2 minutes. 4 | Meanwhile, whisk the remaining ½ cup broth and cornstarch in a small bowl.Add the

chutney to the pan and cook, stirring until blended. Stir in the cornstarch mixture. Taste for seasoning and if needed, add the remaining ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring, and cook until thickened. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan and turn to coat with sauce. Serve sprinkled with toasted walnuts and green onions. Prep: 35 minutes; Total: 35 MINUTES

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Billy +Patrick


by Patrick John

Billy and I have attended and hosted countless concerts over the last 19 years, and one of the most asked questions we get is, “How can I meet (insert star’s name here)?” Here’s your crash course in getting a little backstage face time with your favorite artist. The easiest, fastest way to solidify garnering photos with your favorite artist is to join their fan club. The moment you find out someone you really want to meet is coming to town, get online and check out their website. Locate their fan club and join. Most fan clubs allow you a few opportunities a year to get up close and personal backstage. Some are free, some require you to join an email list, and some will set you back a few bucks. Some also earn you extras, like invitations to fan-club-only events, bonus promotional items like photos & T-shirts, and special online access. Next on the list is something we know about very well…winning passes on the radio! We typically give away backstage passes for every concert we present, sponsor or host. Sometimes it’s a pair, and other times it’s a dozen. It depends on the artist, the size of the venue, the time of the show, if there’s an opening act, etc. All I can say about this is you need to keep listening. We give away passes online, via texting, and of course, during on-air contests. Tune in to your favorite radio station and listen for details. Patience really is a virtue. Many times, performers wait until the venue is almost cleared out, then come from backstage to meet any diehards who are still hanging out. I’ve seen some shocked faces and dreams come true, all due to an extra 10-minute wait in the theater after a concert. Most recently, we’ve seen fans who monitor Facebook, Twitter, and other social media to locate performers and their tour buses. A few months ago, country superstar Luke Bryan made a stop in Redding for some fishing, and ended up hanging out with lots of fans at local restaurants, nightclubs and more. Although I wouldn’t personally recommend stalking the bus, we’ve seen some folks have success at getting an artist out to say hi. Billy and I tried it once by banging on Merle Haggard’s bus door. It was a laughable moment, and we were not successful. Someday I’ll get to meet Merle…. Lastly, when you do get the opportunity to say hello to one of your favorite stars, make it count! Take the picture you want to take, ask the question you want to ask, tell the story you want to tell. Remember, they are real people too, and most of them truly appreciate your support and enthusiasm.

the Crafter


“I love doing this ­­— if I’m away from it from any length of time, I miss it. It calls me back.”

Tina Six McMullen, Along the Way








ENJOY: People seem to adore your whimsical fabric dolls. How long have you been sewing? TINA: I’ve always sewn, for as long as I can remember. I started the business about 18 years ago, because I wanted something to do but I also wanted to stay home with my son. A new crafters’ mall was opening and I decided to check it out, and that’s how I got started. I went on to do shows in Reno, Chester and around our area, but I got tired of traveling, so I started doing boutiques at my house. I do a big annual Christmas boutique that’s coming up in November. ENJOY: How are your creations special? TINA: I put a lot of detail into them. I rarely make two that look alike. I do sew from patterns sometimes, but I create most from my own designs. I take pride in my workmanship. I can easily spend two days on a doll. I love doing this - if I’m away from it from any length of time, I miss it. It calls me back. ENJOY: What types of people enjoy your products? TINA: It’s a wide age range ­— women from 20 to 80-plus buy my dolls and critters.

ENJOY: Tell us about your creative space. TINA: I have a sewing room in my home. I use my mom’s sewing machine, a Husqvarna which was brought here from Sweden by my parents’ Danish friends in 1956. It still has the original plug; I have an adapter for it. It’s the best machine. I love that my mom made so many of my clothes on it. My sewing table is the first kitchen table that my mom and dad had. ENJOY: We know folks can find your creations at Enjoy the Store, but can you also tell us more about your annual Christmas boutique? TINA: The 11th annual Heartstrings is from Nov. 21 to 23 at my house. Four of us do the show, and my husband Rick and son Trevor help; I couldn’t do it without them. We have painted wood, dolls, animals, signs and vintage treasures. We also have treats — fudge, jams, homemade breads and all kinds of Christmas treats. We have raffle baskets, and if you bring canned foods, you can get free tickets. The food is donated to People of Progress, and all proceeds go to Wings of Angels. You can get directions and more information from our flyers, which are available at Enjoy the Store.

FOR THEIR HONOR “This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.” ~Elmer Davis

Honor Flight Northern California is a nonprofit program created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices by flying these American heroes to Washington, DC to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to senior WW II survivors along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill. The WW II Memorial was not dedicated until April 2004, nearly 60 years after the end of the war, therefore, many veterans have not had the opportunity or the resources to see their country’s tribute to their bravery. Based on recent statistics, we are losing WW II veterans at the rate of 1,200 per day. With many not having the resources or support systems to undertake such a trip, Honor Flight Northern California is doing whatever it takes to fulfill the dreams of our veterans and, very importantly, our senior heroes travel free. They are accompanied by trained volunteer guardians who pay their own expenses simply for the honor of serving these American heroes.

get involved: Volunteer positions include being at the airport to send off the veterans in the morning and then being there at the end of the trip to welcome them home with a cheering reception; office help with answering phones and entering application information into the data system; mailing out requested material and purchased merchandise; contacting veterans and guardians and making arrangements based on projected flight schedules.

Cornerstone Community Bank is the realization of dreams – from buying a first home to helping a family with a love of agriculture grow a business that customers are just nuts about. Locally owned and funded, we are honored to share in building our clients’ legacies. For 36 years, the Bianchi family have produced walnuts in Tehama County.
