It’s always a treat to see the San Francisco Giants in action, but you can get your game on much closer to home. The Redding Colt .45s are officially a collegiate summer league team, but 25 players have gone on to play professionally, and the team continues to ramp up the entertainment side of the ballpark experience. Grab your peanuts and Cracker Jacks – play ball! Anyone who has attended a graduation in recent weeks doesn’t need to be convinced of the vast potential of our young people. Look no further than Dylan Olson of Redding, a 2006 graduate of Stellar Charter School whose design for an original amusement park attraction earned him a semi-finalist spot in the Walt Disney Imagineering ImagiNations Design Competition. But he’s nowhere near the only young up-and-comer who is making waves in our world.

Despite a first-week cancellation due to rain (really?), our third annual Enjoy Movies in the Park series is just as well-received as it was last year. If you haven’t been to this free, fantastically fun family event, there’s still plenty of summer left!

Story: Sandie Tillery

Check out for inspiration and information. For more information about the August events: Katie Quinn, (530) 778-3307 River Rock Gardens 330 River Rock Road, Lewiston


S I S T E R S O N T H E F LY H AV E M O R E F U N T H A N A N Y O N E Katie Quinn and husband Mel Deardorff have created a hidden paradise, blissfully beautiful and serene, on the bank of the Trinity River in Lewiston, a place they love to share with others. With manicured garden pathways, three ponds and a view from the deck to die for, Quinn and Deardorff will host the third annual Trinity Trailer Trash Bash in August at their River Rock Gardens retreat. The four-day event caters to women who call themselves “Sisters on the Fly,” a national organization with one of many mottos that claims, “We have more fun than anyone.” It’s all about the belly laughs. Quinn needs her share regularly. Deardorff has come to recognize the signs and sends her off with a hug and a kiss, knowing she’ll come back happy and ready to tackle their very busy everyday life again. Quinn hits the road several times each year to join her “Sisters on the Fly” on their camping caravan adventures all over the United States. Pulling refurbished vintage trailers outlandishly decorated inside and out, the “girls” enjoy the gawkers and the friendly responses from passersby as they travel. But mostly, Quinn looks forward to the girl time at their camping destinations with singing and stories around the campfire, good food and conversation shared with friends, and belly laughs that go on and on. Quinn, Sister #1033, will open two events to the public during this year’s bash in an effort to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Four of the estimated 30 Sisters planning to attend have first–hand experience as cancer survivors. They have chosen this event to support a cause that hits home with them. Quinn and Deardorff also have experienced the heartache of loss to cancer. Quinn volunteers with the local American Cancer Society in honor of the 20 loved ones they have lost to the disease, and they plan to add the money they raise to Relay for Life Trinity County scheduled in September. An open-air concert on the lawn with award-winning folk singer Juni Fisher promises to fill the night air with heartwarming Americana, folk and acoustic music on Thursday, August 11, from 6:30 to 9 pm, while guests watch a full moon rise over the Trinity 16 Enjoy July 2011

Alps. Refreshments will be served. Limited space requires advance purchase of tickets for a $15 donation. If space permits, last-minute tickets may be available for a $30 donation. On Saturday, August 13, from 11 am to 2 pm, visitors will enjoy a “Show & Shine” exhibit of 25 theme-decorated trailers including “Mel’s Diner,” “Typsy Gypsy,” “The Trinity Bunkhouse” and “Porta Party.” Detailed inside and out with each woman’s unique flair, the women take offense if visitors just peek in. “We want our guests to get in and see all the work we have done,” says Janet Castagnola, Sister #511 from Long Beach. A $10 donation at the gate includes the trailer show, appetizers, liquid refreshment and rock-and-roll oldies on the lawn with Trinity County band Soul Kitchen. (Men and women are welcome at both events, but please, no children or pets.) Irene Rawlings published a book, Sisters on the Fly, in 2010 about the amazing journey, adventures, camaraderie, food and fun experienced by the women who call themselves “Sisters on the Fly.” They’ve been featured in Oprah’s magazine, “Trailer Life” and hometown newspapers around the country. Since its launch in 1999 by two real-life sisters who wanted to share their outdoor adventures with other women, the loosely structured group has grown to close to 2,000 from all over the country. Quinn, who joined in the fall of 2008, travelled with three other trailer-towing West Coast Sisters all the way to Tybee Island, Ga., in April to “crash” a Sisters party on the beach. “Every day was a belly laugh,” she says. Quinn says of their adventures, “We get to be ourselves without the responsibilities and demands of home.” Their one rule: “No men, no kids, no dogs.” Not all have committed to trailer life, however. Some tent camp and some stay at local lodging along the way. But all, without exception, look forward to the joy of their sisterhood where one has said, “We turn women into girls.” • Sandie Tillery writes about the North State from 35 years of personal experience exploring it from corner to corner with husband John, their three grown children and four grandsons.

Sugar Sugar tasty treats from sweetspot

It’s a story about a local girl making good – finding a niche in a struggling economy and creatively marketing her product, her business and herself. When Charmaine Yu and her partner, Chris Evans, launched Sweetspot three years ago, they concentrated on unique cupcake flavors along with gelato and frozen yogurt. Now they daily bake up cookies, brownies, cupcakes (large and small), cheesecakes and cakes for all occasions. They also make their own gelato with Evans’ specialty flavors catering to special concerns with no corn syrup, non-dairy and fat-free options. But it’s not just about the product. Yu and Evans were determined to create a “happy” environment where folks would linger. It’s working. continued on page 22

July 2011 Enjoy 21

A wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling chalkboard represents the fun of hanging out in Sweetspot, where old and young leave their messages, marks and hearts on the wall. A small play table with toys makes for happy times for young people, while grownups sit nearby and enjoy sweet delights. Regular birthday parties crowd the play area where busy hands decorate and personalize cookies before the wrapping paper flies. “It smells like sugar’s in the air at Sweetspot,” says Yu. Yu has approached the marketing of Sweetspot in the same way the staff greets each customer to the shop – with a warm smile and friendly greeting. With understated confidence, Yu sent out her ambassadors and began giving away samples and discount coupons to professional offices, at events in the Mt. Shasta Mall, at carnivals – wherever she could find an audience to try out her specialty cupcakes. Yu calls it “guerilla marketing.” She found early on that it pays greater dividends than more costly advertising avenues, though she also budgets for ads in major media outlets from time to time. Along with other local small businesses, Yu and Evans participate in ShopHop Redding during the spring and autumn events. Yu attended Redding schools from the age of 10, when her family immigrated to the United States from Hong Kong and George and Imelda Yu opened Sailing Boat Restaurant on Churn Creek Road in Redding. Their daughter later left Redding to study industrial design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, where she earned her bachelor of science degree. Yu describes what she learned about product design as a marriage between function and aesthetics. When Yu met Evans, who graduated from Chapman University, they shared a dream to open a business together, initially in the Los Angeles area. The growing interest in televised cooking shows and trendy bakeries inspired them to act on their dream. Coming full circle, Yu found herself again in Redding, where the couple felt they could get in front of the trend rather than trying to find a place among the numerous start-up businesses in the Los Angeles area. Though they didn’t intend to target children in their business strategy, Yu comments that the younger crowd makes up about 50 percent of their clientele. “They were the first people in Redding liking us,” she says with a smile. She would see children cry when they left the store. Now she plans $1 craft days on special occasions and summer cooking camps for her young fans. This summer, she has partnered with Fabulous Fabrics to offer camps that include crafting, sewing and cooking experiences. Yu has been in negotiations with another partner to open a second location intended primarily as a party center and a place to hold their popular cooking and craft camps. In addition to selling bakery and frozen treats in the shop, Sweetspot provides “sweet” catering services for weddings and parties. They do some wholesale business with local restaurants as well. Yu and Evans have added a small gift shop area to the mix so guests can make it a one-stop shopping experience while visiting their storefront in the shopping complex near Chuck E. Cheese on the north end of Hilltop Drive. Redding residents and visitors passing through have discovered the decadent joy and the “smell of sugar in the air” at Sweetspot. • (530) 226-8086 • 930 Hilltop Drive, Suite B, Redding Visit Sweetspot Redding on Facebook

this is what

feels like.

It’s a little-known fact – breast cancer screening is not just about getting a mammogram. Women who are at a higher risk of breast cancer need more. At North Valley Breast Clinic in Redding, we determine your risk for developing breast cancer before any exams are done. We then tailor your screening to your specific needs. You may only require mammography. Or, like millions of other women, you may need additional tests to ensure accurate detection. Our cutting-edge program helps detect more cancers, find them sooner, and discover them when they are smaller – an approach that could save your life. Giving yourself the best chance to beat breast cancer ... That’s what true freedom feels like.

P rofessional B ull R iding comes to R ed B luff When the trucks of Cottonwood’s Four Star Rodeo and Red Bluff ’s Kish’s Buckin Best Ranch start stirring up dust at the Tehama District Fairgrounds on July 21, they’ll be loaded with the best bulls in their herds for the 7th annual North State production of the Professional Bull Riding Touring Pro series. “You’re talking about the best bull riders in the world, so you’ve got to have the best bulls,” says Four Star’s Jeff Davis. He estimates that only 10 out of 100 bulls in a bucking bull breeding program qualify to compete at this elite level. With professional bull riding touted as the fastest growing sport in America, it’s imperative to have the best stock to maintain interest in the sport. The bulls are, after all, half the equation—and score—in bull riding. “The draw is the element of danger and novelty that’s involved,” says Leah Garcia, a Professional Bull Riding sideline reporter for the Built Ford Tough bull-riding series that is televised to a national audience. “It’s cool to think of man and beast. In eight seconds, there's a

winner and a loser. We like to see who’s going to come out a winner.” With the bulls being raised locally for the Red Bluff event, it’s just as fun to cheer for them as the cowboys who attempt riding them. Garcia was raised in Marysville and grew up competing in North State rodeos, spending much time in Tehama County. Her background in the sport made her a natural reporter for the televised Professional Bull Riding events. She notes with pride the large North State contingency that is involved. “The North State really sticks together,” she notes. “Everyone has each other’s backs.” Cowboys on the Touring Pro Series are riding to earn enough points to qualify for the Built Ford Tough series, which is not only televised but is financially lucrative for the winners. Of the Professional Bull Riding itself, Garcia notes that “It’s an extended family, for sure.” While the bulls have their own personalities and traits to appreciate, Garcia adds, “The other element of it is the character of the men, the cowboys themselves. They’re continued on page 26

just good guys­­- charming, polite, fun loving.” Rick and Angie Gurolla of Cottonwood agree, which is why they’ve had their sideline business, Mesa Productions, bring Professional Bull Riding to the North State for seven years now. “Bull riding is a favorite part of rodeo and (with this event) you get 40 rides plus a championship round,” says Angie. She and Rick have full-time jobs, but they love the bulls, the cowboys and the excitement of bringing a quality event to a North State audience, which already has a great appreciation for both the human and animal athletes. Part of the allure of bull riding is the element of danger and the athleticism of both bull and rider. “Remember, in bull riding there’s only one way to get off. There’s never a guarantee about how you land or where you land,” says Garcia. That’s what makes Red Bluff ’s Eric Layton’s job so important. As a professional bullfighter, the 27-yearold is tasked with protecting cowboys once they’re on the ground. He may even have to ensure a cowboy gets to the ground. Occasionally a rider can get hung up in his rigging and be tossed around like a rag doll until his hand is freed from the bull. Bull fighting often involves jumping between a rider and a bull to divert the bull’s attention from the rider. “There’s always going to

be a bull that will run you over, but that’s just part of the deal,” says Layton, his hand wrapped from injuries sustained at an earlier rodeo. About his injury, he notes wryly, “You break a lot of fingers.” “There’s no other athlete in the world that endures the physical challenges that these guys do,” says Garcia. “These guys are being tested to the best of their physical ability.” For a first-hand look at the world of professional bull riding, the Tehama District Fairgrounds on July 16 will be the best place to be. With top 40 riders Sean Willingham, Cord McCoy and Skeeter Kingsolver scheduled to compete, as well as the North State’s best bulls and bullfighters, it’s sure to be a night to remember. • Professional Bull Riders Tour Pro Bull Riding Event Tehama District Fairgrounds 650 Antelope Blvd., Red Bluff Saturday, July 16, 2011 • 7:30 pm • $25-$75

While Woody Woodland heads to the kennels to retrieve the first STAR Program trainee of the evening—a rambunctious four-month-old pit bull mix named Copper—his training partner Krista Korenko chats with volunteers. They talk excitedly about the dogs they worked with the week before when someone asks, “What about Jethro?” Korenko tells them that the Border Collie-Great Dane mix and former STAR pupil was recently adopted, and hurrahs go up at the news that their efforts are proving successful. Haven Humane Society’s Socialization and Training for Adoption Readiness Program (STAR) is one that Woodland, Haven’s training and education specialist, introduced to the shelter two years ago. Based on psychologist B.F. Skinner’s behavioral research, first adapted for use with dolphins and later extended to other animals, the training moves the focus away from intimidation and force to a model that requires the animal to think for itself.

Key to the training is a handheld clicker device used to mark the animal’s desired behavior. Korenko, Haven’s public relations and education manager, says that because of the distinctness of the sound, its precision and quickness of delivery (like a brisk finger snap), clicker training is effective in modifying animal behavior when applied consistently and paired with a reward. Volunteers work with Woodland and Korenko to teach the shelter dogs basic obedience commands and the socialization skills necessary to make them successful adoptees. The two-hour weekly training sessions usually involve several dogs who receive about 20 minutes each with the group. The type of approach volunteers take depends entirely on an animal’s behavioral problem. “If the dog is a jumper,” Woodland says, “volunteers will begin the session by standing in a circle. As the dog moves from person to person around the circle, he will hear a click and receive a reward every time he doesn’t jump, which reinforces the desired continued on page 30

behavior of all four feet on the floor.” Similarly, if the behavioral problem is timidity, the dog will be brought into a room of volunteers seated on the floor with treats placed around them, which creates a less-threatening atmosphere. Every time the dog approaches when called, she will hear a click and receive a reward to reinforce the desired approach behavior. Korenko calls this “shaping” and says, “We slowly get small progressions toward the goal. It starts with gradual movement and the animal becomes conscious that his decision determines whether that treat is coming.” Rewards vary; some animals respond to praise, others to toys, and still others to kibble and more exotic food treats like hot dogs and cheese. As STAR has grown, the shelter staff has begun to recognize incoming animals that can benefit from the program. Captain Lee Anne Smith, Haven’s operational manager, believes that dogs who participate in the training fare better in the shelter environment. “The STAR animals are much more relaxed,” says Smith. “I think the program has made a huge difference in their adoptability and contributed to less euthanasia.” Woodland advises, however, that training can only go so far. He says prospective adopters must think about the animal best suited to their needs. Korenko agrees: “Someone who wants to go jogging shouldn’t get a basset hound.” To illustrate the program’s effectiveness, Smith tells the story of Skip, an energetic 8-month old fox terrier-cross that was adopted after a week in the shelter but returned the next day because of his destructive digging. Woodland worked with him using the STAR techniques and subsequently Skip was readopted and remains with the same family. He even learned some new tricks. •

Would you look at all that stuff ... They’ve got Allen wrenches, gerbil feeders, toilet seats, electric heaters Trash compactors, juice extractor, shower rods and water meters. —Weird Al Yankovic, “Hardware Store”

Early morning, the main street of Dunsmuir is greeted by the constant squeak of double doors. The brass bars and kick plates swing with vigor between windows filled with gardening seed, an antique scale and a sign advertising model trains. The heat from the wood stove in the winter strikes the customer with the warmth and character that only a 117-year-old hardware store can produce. Ron and Pat McCloud grew up in small towns, tasted the corporate, big city world and yearned for their new family to be raised in the same type of rural area they knew as children. In 1975, Dunsmuir Hardware became available for purchase and a new lifestyle became available to their family. “We wanted our kids to experience what we had growing up,” McCloud says. “My wife and I only knew hardware continued on page 33 July 2011 Enjoy 33

as customers. But here was a business we knew we could make work.” The original store opened in 1894, when Dunsmuir’s first mayor, Alexander Levy, rented space for a mercantile store. A fire in 1903 forced the store to move one block south. The store continued to grow, and in 1927, the owner sold off its grocery department to focus on hardware. In 1964, the business moved to its current location, the 1912 Brick Garage building. Standing amid oak barrels of merchandise, McCloud says, “We’re a vanishing breed. In most communities, big-box stores have overwhelmed the general store. You have to come to a rural community to find a store like ours.” A shelf lining the upper wall of the business contains local history. An ancient fan, vintage beer cans, railroad lanterns, boxed goods and old fishing equipment speak about the lives of the people who have kept the store in business. “Our store is a throwback to the old mercantile store. People can come here and find everything from clothing to housewares to gold-panning supplies,” McCloud says. Against the worn wooden floors, a turn-of-the-century steam power plant rests, along with a wooden wagon full of goods, alongside painted lines marking out footage across the length of the store that are used for measurement. Historic photographs show faces of people who resided in the city for the past century, while deer heads peer down and keep watch over the room. A wooden staircase leads to a balcony, which gives an overview of the place. If the city has a heart, it can be found in the hardware store. Everyone comes in the building to see everyone else. The phone almost never stops ringing. Walking across the creaky floor, McCloud says, “People call and come in for everything. They ask about what the fish are biting on, what the snow is like. People call from back east looking for friends and ask us if we know how to reach them. We follow them from beginning to end on their house projects. Especially the ones that begin with replacing a washer in a faucet that leads to the remodeling of the whole bathroom. People come here and we want them to feel special as we meet whatever their need.” Dunsmuir Hardware is an experience. The walls contain the history of a museum, the shelves meet the expectations of a small town’s dreams and the people who work there exude the spirit of the pioneers who settled Dunsmuir. McCloud sums it up in saying, “People in this town have a special relationship with one another. They’ve come to rely on us. Here is the place where everyone really knows your name.” •

fifteen minutes with redding AC TO R Stephen K line NAME: Stephen Kline PERSONAL: Single with a pure white cat named Edmond. JOB TITLE: P.E. teacher at Lassen View Elementary School, acting and improv teacher at Westside Performing Arts Center, theatre history adjunct professor at Simpson University. WHAT ARE SOME OF THE UPCOMING PLAYS YOU’LL BE PERFORMING IN? WE Multimedia Theatre Group’s American Buffalo runs from July14-16 and July 22-23 at the Bohemian Art Loft. AS A CHILD, WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GREW UP? I knew that I wanted to be an artist and a ninja of some kind. WHAT IS IT LIKE BEING A PROFESSIONAL ACTOR IN LOS ANGELES? You have to know that you are the only actor in the world for the part as you walk into an audition room filled with 50 other actors who look and sound just like you. WHICH OF YOUR CELEBRITY ENCOUNTERS WOULD MOST IMPRESS A ROOM FULL OF 8th GRADE GIRLS? I was able to see Jude Law perform onstage in London. There were a lot of ladies going absolutely nuts. WHICH OF YOUR CELEBRITY ENCOUNTERS WOULD MOST IMPRESS A ROOM FULL OF OCTOGENARIANS? Phillip Seymour Hoffman asked me for a cigarette after I saw Alan Rickman perform onstage once. That was the one moment of my life that I regretted not picking up the filthy habit. WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO REDDING? I was living in L.A. and barely making the rent each month for my one-bedroom fishbowl. My amazing aunt, Jackie Williams, knew I wanted to move to London and that I could not save money to save my life. She offered me a place to stay so I could build up my finances for the big move. God led me toward pursuing two teaching credentials while I was here, and now I am just about ready for the next step. IS IT TRUE THAT YOU HOPE TO MOVE TO LONDON TO PURSUE AN ACTING CAREER? God is everything to me, and London is everything else that I love about Him. I have visited many cities all over the world and nothing compares to the sense of home that I feel for this amazing place. London is art. Everywhere you turn in this city, you are overtaken by a stimulating swirl of inspiration that engulfs you with a true passion for music, dancing, visual art, food, fashion, poetry, history, film and theatre. I can think of no other place I would rather live, and be a student of theatre for the rest of my life.

IF YOU COULD ACTUALLY BECOME ANY CHARACTER YOU’VE EVER PLAYED, WHO WOULD IT BE? WHY? I would be Hamlet. Out of all the characters I have ever played, I am the most like him. He was his own worst enemy because he let his mind keep him from doing what he was supposed to do in a timely manner. Hamlet says, “…for there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” Over the years, I have tried to change my perspective on the trials I face in this life because of this quote. HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR FREE TIME? I run outside almost everyday, not just for the exercise, but for the love of it. I write poetry. I watch stupid, low budget, scary movies. I travel as much as possible. I like video games. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE? Top five: Reservoir Dogs, Moulin Rouge, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Donnie Darko and Once. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE? “Love art in yourself, not yourself in art” - Stanislavski WHAT’S YOUR PROUDEST MOMENT? I’m a teacher and there is nothing like seeing a student’s eyes light up when they really understand something new. WHAT’S YOUR BEST CHILDHOOD MEMORY? When I was about 5 years old, I lived in Texas. My dad accidentally knocked down a hornet’s nest while we were going into our shed. After the tornado, we were inside being doctored up by my mom and my sister. My dad was covered in stings, and I had just one sting on my lip. Well I was 5, so I was crying out in agony like it was the end of the world. My dad put his hand on my shoulder and he told me that he would do anything to take my pain for me. I thought he was crazy because he was covered in disaster. But in my little mind, I realized what he meant by what he said, and in that moment I saw what real love and sacrifice were all about. My father is suffering to this day from congestive heart failure brought on by rheumatoid arthritis. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t wish that I could take all of his pain for him. WHO‘S YOUR HERO? My hero is anyone who can die at an old age without regret. WHAT WOULD PEOPLE BE SURPRISED TO LEARN ABOUT YOU? After God has given me 20 years of theatre experience, and after performing in more than 40 productions, I will get stage fright every time before every show. I depend on God’s strength for every performance because my insecurities could eat me alive. WHAT IS ONE THING THAT’S ON YOUR BUCKET LIST? I must see every square inch of this planet.

For decades there’s been talk of attracting a minor league professional baseball team to the North State. Since 2004, however, there’s already kind of been one here. The Redding Colt .45s are officially a collegiate summer league team. But those who know the game well, know that the level of play has elevated close to (or the equivalent of ) the professional minors. Case in point – 25 former Colt .45 players have gone on to play professionally, including several who remain active in minors – Drew Hedman (Boston), Chase Blackwood (Chicago White Sox) and Gabe McDougall

The colt .45s


(Kansas City). Shasta High’s Dallas Chadwick, who pitched for the team last summer, was drafted by Boston but decided to attend Sacramento State. This summer’s Redding Colt .45s team includes 13 players either currently playing Division I college baseball or headed there from the junior college ranks. “This year, top to bottom, it looks like the strongest roster we’ve put together,” says Colt .45s coach Dennis Brugman, who started the team seven years ago. “We’ve got five or six guys who pitch 90 miles per hour. These kids, they can play.” continued on page 42 July 2011 Enjoy 41

The Colt .45s play their home games at Tiger Field in Redding, and this summer they’re competing in the newly formed Far West League, which includes 11 teams in two divisions. In addition to the Colt .45s, the six-team North Division includes the Humboldt Crabs (Arcata), Southern Oregon RiverDawgs (Medford), Nevada Bullets (Carson City), California Seals (San Francisco) and NorCal Pirates (Chico). In addition to college players with roots in the North State and some playing at Shasta College and Simpson University, the team is comprised of players from all across the country. There are players from Michigan State, Oral Roberts, Oklahoma, University of California at Davis, University of the Pacific and Division II power Grand Valley State (Michigan). Though college players use aluminum bats during the spring season, the Far West League uses wooden bats, which gives the games an even more authentic professional feel. “A big part of it is getting used to wooden bats,” says Colt .45s manager and president Greg Cadaret. “It takes more strength and better hitting mechanics than aluminum bats. It exposes the weaknesses in their swings that they’ve been getting away with. It makes them better hitters when they go back to aluminum bats in the fall.” Cadaret knows what it takes to play at the highest level of baseball. He pitched in 451 games in the major leagues, including stints with the Oakland A’s, New York Yankees, Anaheim Angels and five other teams. A left-hander, he struck out 539 batters and had a career 3.99 ERA in the big leagues. He even pitched in three games of the 1988 World Series for Oakland (a series made famous by Kirk Gibson’s walk-off home run for the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1). Colt .45s players know they’re fortunate to have a mentor like Cadaret. Pitcher Tanner McIntire (a Corning High grad) had a lackluster year for Butte College in 2010, but he gained confidence and experience pitching for the Colt .45s last summer. This spring, he became the closer for Butte (an important late-inning relief pitcher) and after another summer in Redding, he’s headed to Virginia Tech to pitch. “The coaching staff ’s really good,” McIntire says. “(Cadaret) has played in the bigs, so, obviously, he knows what it takes to get there. When you’re facing Division I players and you do well, it gives you confidence.” 42 Enjoy July 2011

As the North State continues to discover the Colt .45s, the team continues to ramp up the entertainment side of the ballpark experience. The games include between-inning music and entertainment -- just like minor league games – and the .45s have formed spirited rivalries with clubs like the Humboldt Crabs and Southern Oregon RiverDawgs. There are promotional nights coordinated with area Little League teams and even a special fireworks night set for July 2 at Tiger Field. For the second summer in a row, the Colt .45s are holding a youth baseball instructional camp. Last summer, the team gave away several hundred tickets to Oakland A’s games to kids involved in the camp. “We’re really trying to give back to the community,” Brugman says. “I think the community is starting to become aware of what we’re doing. It’s been a warm embrace. People say, ‘I can’t believe you’re here. I didn’t have a clue.’” For more information, including a schedule of the team’s 52 games this summer, visit The team hopes to eventually play at a new stadium at Simpson University. The university purchased the former Nut Tree Stadium of Vacaville in 2008 and plans to reassemble it on its east Redding campus. The school hopes to break ground this summer and work on the first phase of the stadium, which includes the field, dugouts, lights, fences and 550 stadium seats in the grandstand. Brugman says the Colt .45s may even have an advantage over a minor-league ball team. Since the team doesn’t face the pressure to earn a significant profit, its chances of staying in the area might be better than a club affiliated with a big-league team. “You hear people say all the time that we need a pro team,” Brugman says. “Well, we’re a non-profit organization and we are the community’s team. A (professional) organization comes in and if it’s not making money, then they’re gone. We’re trying to operate in a professional manner and show (the community) that we are the team you need here.”• Jim Dyar is a freelance writer, musician and a former arts and entertainment editor at the Record Searchlight.

In an emergency... Choose Mercy “I felt at ease because I had faith in my Pediatrician and I knew the Mercy ER and Pediatrics Department had my son’s best interest at heart.” Bradley doesn’t slow down from the time he springs out of bed until his head rests on the pillow. So when Brad and Jamie took their son to see the cars at Redding’s popular Kool April Nights they expected their little boy to be ecstatic. “I knew something was wrong when he showed no interest in looking at any of the cars. His eyes were watery. He was lethargic and just wanted to sleep. I took him into the Mercy ER where the triage nurse placed him in a bed very quickly. They took X-Rays and completed a blood work up. We found out Bradley had pneumonia and he would need to stay in the Pediatrics Department. Everyone was so nice. They let me stay in the room with my son. A Respiratory Therapist came to check on him every couple of hours…even in the middle of the night. They had movies for him and asked him if he wanted anything. His answer was always ‘orange juice’,” said Jamie with a smile on her face.

Get Gorgeous Summer Guide keep looking cool when it ’ s hot out

Flawless Faux Glow Self-tan like a pro. Start with clean, exfoliated skin for best results. Prevent buildup on drier areas—like ankles, knees and elbows—by putting on a bit of lotion first. When applying self-tanner, begin at your feet and work your way up to avoid creases in the color caused by bending. Wait at least half an hour before getting dressed to let the tanner absorb. And no-mess towelettes make application even easier (try Sonia Kashuk Sunless Tan Tanning Towelettes, $9.99 at Target). Too timid to try it on your own? Palm Beach Tan offers two sunless spray options: VersaSpa and Mystic Tan. Check them out at 1810 Churn Creek Road in Redding, (530) 226-8261. 46 Enjoy July 2011

Simple Hairstyles It’s all about pretty braids, effortless texture and undone updos—with just a touch of polish. If your hair is frizz-prone, apply an antihumectant cream to damp locks to protect them from unwanted moisture. (Try Suave Professionals Weather Protection 365 Anti-Frizz & Flyaway Cream Gel, $2.49.) Skip heat styling and work with what you’ve got. If there ever was a time to ditch that flatiron, it’s summer! There are fabulous products to boost your natural waves or curls. Try a texturizing product, such as Fekkai’s Summer Hair Collection with UV Shield to help prevent fading. Beach Waves uses salt water to create surf-sexy texture, and sea kelp hydrates tousled waves ($24). Go for a casual look and wear your hair up or back more often. Luckily, braids are all the rage and provide a summer respite for hair. Check out the latest fashion magazines for the how-to’s of plaiting. Your style can be free-flowing, but be sure to set it with a humidityblocking hair spray so it lasts (Garnier Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Anti-Humidity NonAerosol Hairspray, $4).

Flirty Fashion Finally, there are many gorgeous go-to looks for summer. Stand out in strappy heels, try a pair of dressy shorts or slip on a flowy dress and voila: Fashionista!

Glam Going Out Makeup Keep that faux glow going with copper-colored makeup and shimmery skin. MAC’s new whipped mousse shadows stay put well into the evening and come in many summer-worthy shades ($16.50, Macy’s). Use Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil in Bronze ($19) right under the lash line to create a dramatic effect, and try copper and gold shadows to show off tawny skin. In the mood for color? Go with aqua on your eyes for a bold but surprisingly easy-to-wear look. (We like Rimmel London Glam Eyes Mono Eye Shadow in Posh Peacock, $3.49.) Pair with waterproof blue liners, such as Cargo Swimmables Waterproof Pencil Collection ($18, Ulta). Blend sheer hot pink blush on the apples of the cheeks. Stick to cream or gel formulas—powdery textures can streak in the heat. On lips, try a gloss in fuchsia, red or coral. They may look intense in the tube, but they go on sheer so anyone can pull them off. Don’t let the heat keep you inside, trapped with a limp ponytail and frumpy boxers. There are tons of ways to look gorgeous despite the climbing mercury of July. • Melissa Gulden returned to Redding four years ago, just in time for Enjoy!

As part of his 70th birthday celebration, family members had blindfolded David Gasman and were leading him along a path behind the Redding Convention Center when he got a whiff of the horses corralled near the Redding Rodeo arena. “He said, ‘Oh, no, are we going to go horseback riding?’” recalls his wife, Kay. There were no horses involved in the party, but plenty of horsepower—the Gasman birthday party was on its way to a jetboat ride on the Sacramento River. “He was so relieved,” Kay says. “Exciting, exhilarating and great fun” was how Gasman, a retired psychiatrist, describes the day. His reaction is pretty typical of the folks who have joined Sundial Jetboat Excursions for a ride over the river’s shimmering green waves. For many, including lifelong Redding residents, it’s their first time on the river and their first time aboard a jetboat. “We live on the river and we don’t have a boat, so we never get out unless we get on an innertube and float down. That’s why we wanted to get on the river. The grandkids came down, some from out of state, and we had a wonderful time. “These guys were so good with those boats. It was so hot. They would go swooshing by, and we’d get sprayed by these boats. They made it a very special day and I’d recommend it to anybody,” Kay Gasman says. Those guys are Richard Johnston and Dave Sifers, a pair of avid fishermen and boaters who decided one day that other people might enjoy the river as much as they do. In 2006, they started Sundial Jetboat Excursions to offer evening and weekend trips between Redding and Anderson. Both men have day jobs—Johnston owns an upholstery shop on Bechelli Lane and Sifers is the branch manager at Airgas on North Market Street—and they both have jetboats. Jetboats are so named because, instead of a spinning propeller, they’re powered by a jet of water that is forced through a nozzle. A jetboat’s ability to work in as little as eight inches of water makes them ideal for use on rivers. They’re also ideal for having a blast on the river. Johnston’s boat, a 20-foot Jetcraft, is powered by a 350-cubic-inch V8 that gives it more than enough oomph to charge upstream and literally fly over rapids, providing passengers with splashy airborne thrills. Johnston’s brother-in-law, Sifers, has a 19-foot Alumaweld jetboat that’s also powered by a big V8. Both men and their customers delight in spinning high-speed “donuts” that send up a glittery spiral of water spray. On a 100-degree day, that cool mist is more than welcome.

The excursions, which cover approximately 28 miles between the Posse Grounds boat ramp and Anderson, shouldn’t be confused with a couple of guys hot-rodding around in their boats. Prior to starting the business, both men underwent Coast Guard training and successfully demonstrated the knowledge and skills required by the California Department of Boating and Waterways to receive for-hire vessel operator’s licenses. “I’ve taken great-grandmothers and little kids. It’s nice and safe,” says Sifers. Sightseeing is as big a part of the excursions as the thrills and chills. “Most people don’t expect to see so much wildlife,” Sifers says. “We see ducks, geese, bald eagles, osprey, beaver, otters, deer, salmon, cormorants and other shorebirds.” On a recent excursion, a wood duck hen was spotted shepherding her large brood of fuzzy little ducklings along the river’s shore. Farther downstream, a Canada goose had her fluffy yellow goslings out for a swim, to the delight of two children on board. Johnston likes to play the role of tour guide and point out features of the river and the surrounding area, including Shasta Bally, Whiskeytown Lake, Churn Creek and, of course, the Sundial Bridge. “I just tell them stories all along the river. A lot of people don’t realize how beautiful it is on the river. I’ve taken some couples on numerous trips and a lot of customers become friends.” “It’s definitely a great way to see the bridge,” Sifers says. “Our customers take a lot of pictures and they’ll send them to us and say how much fun they had.” • Sundial Jetboat Excursions Evenings and weekends from May through September $40 per person, $140 for a family of four (530) 222-3750 or (530) 524-9395

rockabilly legend tells his story

When it comes to honky-tonk and rockabilly piano in the 21st century, Memphis-based Jason D. Williams is keeping the style very much alive. Jerry Lee Lewis comparisons have followed Williams for his entire musical career. In fact, in the 1989 Jerry Lee Lewis biopic “Great Balls of Fire,” it was Williams’ hands that were shown playing when actor Dennis Quaid was at the piano. Like Lewis, Williams sings like a man possessed by rock and roll. Says Williams, “I call it ‘pianimal.’” Williams sets his microphone to his immediate right, just as Lewis would do, and incorporates

many of the moves associated with the Killer: the pumping arms, the use of the right foot for a run down the keys, the head tossed back during frantic passages and a whole lotta shakin’ during a performance. “Old-style rockabilly piano is a lost art, almost like tap dancing. To keep my energy up, I run five miles a day and I’m basically a vegetarian. My hands have not slowed down at all over the years. I don’t do any excessive hand exercises. I play often enough to keep my fingers limber. But it’s the cardio exercise that flows through the fingers. Keeping my body healthy has kept my hands healthy.” continued on page 54

But Williams’ is more than a Lewis tribute act. He first played professionally, with rockabilly legend Sleepy LaBeef, when he was 16 years old. He went solo in the late 1980s and signed with RCA, which released his first album, Tore Up, and he stayed on the road after Sun issued Wild in 1993. Don't Get None Onya, released in 2004, captured the power of his blend of honky-tonk country and Memphis rock ‘n roll. “My cousin who played guitar was a big mentor to me, and he once told me, ‘There’s no rules on a piano. It’s just a canvas and your fingers are the paints.’ But record-wise, I remember hearing Jimmy Dorsey doing boogie-woogie with Glenn Miller and it got me really stirred up about the piano.” Williams admits that he got some of his energetic moves from Jerry Lee and doesn’t mind the comparisons, as long as they stay musical. “My cousin calls me a human sponge. I mimic the way people play. Growing up, I watched the ‘70s country music/comedy series ‘Hee Haw’ and saw Moon Mulligan put his foot up on the piano, so I copied him. Of course, once you do that, the comparisons to Jerry Lee come right in. But truly, it was Moon Mulligan who did that first. I also got some stylistic things from stride piano players like Fats Waller and Louis Jordan. I am always listening to a variety of music and trying to transpose it to piano, like Leo Kottke, who’s a guitar player. But I have to say, the guys that were most influential on me were ones that I spent time with, like Memphis Slim and Booker T. Laury. Slim turned me on to Booker. When I finally met him, I shook his hand and realized he was missing one of his fingers. Even so, he was one of the best boogie-woogie pianists I’ve ever heard in my lifetime.” Now, Williams, the man that USA Today called “Jerry Lee Lewis’ most devoted disciple,” has a new album, appropriately titled Killer 54 Enjoy July 2011

Instincts, chock full of completely original rockabilly and wild lyrical stories that have become a staple in Williams’ newly scheduled live shows. Mostly written in the studio with Nashville producer/songwriter and performer Todd Snider, Killer Instincts is a boisterous, pianofueled party cooked up with a good dose of dark humor from what Williams calls “the Dada,” in reference to the anything-goes artistic and cultural movement associated with painter Salvador Dali. They had previously discussed cover tunes they would tackle, and studio tape had started to roll when they decided to try something different. Snider became entranced by Williams’ ability to create poetry on the spot and thought his words could easily become lyrics. Almost instantly, the songs they had began working on were tossed and Williams went to town, making up songs as he went along, the way rappers and poets work. Says Williams: “From time to time, I’ve been wanting to create songs this way, and I could never really get anyone who was psychotic enough to want to do it. Todd Snider was able to do it. It’s wonderful that he can bring that out of someone like myself, because the whole music experience changes and it ends up being fun. You realize that it’s okay to reach inside your heart, it’s okay to be weird, to be eccentric. It’s just here and now.” • Rockin’ Jason D. Williams will be performing at the Mosquito Serenade at the Anderson River Park Amphitheatre on Wednesday, July 13 at 7 pm. 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.

It’s not enough to say that Dylan Olson has wanted to be an engineer since he was old enough to piece Legos together. More specifically, he’s always wanted to be an Imagineer – one of the creative geniuses behind the Disney magic. Today, at just 22 years old, the North State native couldn’t be closer to achieving that dream. Olson, a graduate student at the University of Southern California and a 2006 graduate of Stellar Charter School in Redding, took third place in Walt Disney Imagineering’s 20th annual ImagiNations Design Competition. The competition challenges college and grad school students to design the next generation of attractions that

follow the visions of Disney’s amusement parks. Olson and his team partner, Scott Sabens, created “The Curse of the Mythica Mine.” The attraction takes place in a derelict gold mining camp known at Cold Water Canyon. Guests go through a labyrinth of caverns, over failing bridges, careening over the edges of cliffs, up and down a broken mining elevator and screaming through darkness while being chased by evil spirits haunting the mine, Olson says. “The vehicles are like ‘Indiana Jones,’ but it acts more like a rollercoaster,” he explains. The attraction includes a restaurant and shopping area “so guests are immersed in the entire story.”

Olson and Sabens graduated from San Diego State University last year with engineering degrees. Their challenge for the contest was to “design a unique, diverse and creative experience that maximizes enjoyment for (Disney) guests.” They could create their own characters or use existing Disney characters. The only team with just two members, Olson and Sabens spent more than 50 hours building three models of “The Curse of the Mythica Mine.” Last year, he and Sabens were among 70 semifinalists for their creation that used “The Incredibles” as a theme. This year, however, their placement in the top six earned them the opportunity to meet in mid-June with “Imagineers” – the creative forces who imagine, design and build Disney theme parks, resorts, attractions, cruise ships and more. “Imagineering uses this competition as a way to look for the next generation of Imagineers,” says Disney spokesman Frank Reifsnyder. “We look at the creativity and teamwork skills of each of the participants and see how each might fit within the overall organization … It’s a great way for them to get their foot in the door at Imagineering. We still have people on our full-time staff who participated in the very first ImagiNations Design Competition.” The winning designs will be stored with “the thousands of other ideas that have been generated over the decades by Imagineers,” Reifsnyder says. In addition to earning cash awards, past winners have gone on to serve internships at Imagineering – and some have become full-time Imagineers. No two internships are alike in Disney's Imagineering department, Reifsnyder says. With more than 140 disciplines, interns 58 Enjoy July 2011

gain first-hand experience with project teams around the world. “Imagineering interns really do get to do a lot of cool things and contribute to projects as team members,” Reifsnyder says. “I can’t think of too many other places where interns get to work on building Audio-Animatronics figures, for example, as is the case with one of our current interns and former ImagiNations finalists.” But the opportunities don’t end there. “Walt Disney Imagineering regularly ranks up near the top of lists of ‘dream jobs,’” Reifsnyder says. “The ImagiNations Design Competition is a great way for college students to work firsthand with people who are at the top of their fields … Likewise, it’s a great way for us to identify a diverse pool of candidates for future employment or internships.” Olson has been an architecture and facilities engineering intern for Disney since February. “It’s definitely an incredible experience,” says Olson, the son of Steve and Mary Olson of Redding. “It’s very surreal and kind of emotional. I’ve always wanted to be an Imagineers intern and be in the finals of this ImagiNations contest, but I never thought I’d have both at the same time.” Although his own creation is a thrill ride, his love for Disneyland isn’t just fueled by adrenaline. His favorite ride is Indiana Jones by day, he says, “but at nighttime, I’m in love with the Storybook Canal – it’s just beautiful and awesome.” •

She knew a recent exhibit on feathers was a hit when she saw families leaving together with their arms out as if in flight, actively discussing what they’d seen. “To get people excited about learning is what we’re all about,” says Teasdale, the museum’s acting executive director. “We’re all in this to better understand where we live and what sort of treasures Northern California has to offer.” The Gateway Science Museum, open since February 2010, is the result of more than 15 years of planning. Chico State University faculty believed that the university’s unique and valuable collections

should be made available to a wider audience. “It’s a really neat blend between bringing in a big, professional exhibit and being able to blend it with the university collections that the general public might not otherwise have access to,” says Teasdale. While the museum is a Chico State program, it is made possible through an active community partnership which includes fundraising and an advisory board. Two areas house rotating exhibits on topics as varied as microbes, sustainability and insects, as well as a popular Discovery Room where visitors can engage in hands-on learning. A demonstration lab adjacent to the Discovery Room allows scientists to engage in work while being observed by the visitors. A forensic anthropologist recently worked to identify a human skeleton, much to the

amazement of those who happened upon his project. An outdoor amphitheater hosts live animal demonstrations and stargazing events. An education station provides classroom space for scientists to teach workshops. The museum’s connection to Chico State not only allows access to university collections to the general public, but college students access to unique learning opportunities. Museum Studies students help hang exhibits while students from all disciplines apply to be docents. Child Development students help with children’s programs while science students help visitors better understand the exhibits. The goal is to provide interactive, fun, educational and entertaining learning. “Once people come, they are inspired to come back,” says Teasdale. Current exhibits include DoublExposure, which documents one aspect of the warming climate through fine-art photography that brings the viewer into panoramas of glaciers once grand but now receding. The exhibit features twin photographs of glaciers in Alaska and Switzerland, including The Matterhorn. The South Gallery is featuring Climate Summit Activities, which help visitors understand climate and how it is studied. People who missed the Sustainable Choices exhibit at Turtle Bay this year can experience it in the North Gallery of the Gateway Science Museum through August. Summertime finds the museum busy with week-long day camps for students entering 4th through 6th grade. This month, participants will become Green Detectives, discovering clues to the success of native plants and Aqua Detectives, exploring secret water worlds through study of Big Chico Creek, which runs behind the museum and through the university campus. The museum building is LEED-certified silver and boasts many green building features. Situated right next door to the Bidwell Mansion, the two buildings together provide a unique visual juxtaposition of Chico’s past, present and future. The Valley Gallery, the heart of the building, runs north to south, with a stylized Sacramento River designed into the flooring. The native garden outside the north doors represent flora of the north headwaters of the Sacramento River, while the garden outside the south doors reflect that which is found in the southern valley region. A volcano rotunda at the museum entrance pays homage to the use of volcanoes as a wayfinding device. For anyone interested in finding their way to a better understanding of science and natural history, Chico’s Gateway Science Museum is a fun and meaningful place to explore and learn. • Gateway Science Museum 625 Esplanade, Chico (530) 898-4121 Hours: Noon to 5 pm Wednesday through Friday, 10 am to 5 pm Saturday and Sunday Admission: $5, adults (18 years and older); $3, children age 3-17; free for children 2 and under and museum members

REDDING ARTIST MICHAEL KARNS “As a mixed-media abstract artist, I’m starting to get my groove on. I want to work bigger, use more color. I’ve got all kinds of ideas bouncing around.” This is how Michael Karns opens a conversation when talking about his art. Originally from Wisconsin, Karns received a bachelor of fine arts degree in graphic design and illustration from the University of Wisconsin. “After college, I kissed my mom goodbye and decided to head to California to follow my dream of becoming an artist for Disney Studios,” he says. “On my way to Disney, I stopped to visit a friend in Chico, was offered a job in a screen printing studio in Willows and I’ve been a North State resident ever since.” Karns has made a name for himself as a Northern California artist in screenprinting, abstract painting, graphic design and commercial art, and he’s also a ceramicist. His passion for art is amazingly diverse. “If I could play in the mud and make a living at it, I would do it,” he says. Karns also paints on layers of glass to create a three-dimensional effect using a twodimensional medium. Eight years ago, Karns moved to Redding, and for six years, he worked as a graphic designer for Shasta Creations. On February 28, he opened Boundary Waters, a graphic silk screening business at 244 Hartnell Ave. in Redding. “I want this to be ‘the’ art place for screen printing,” Karns says. “People come in to see what I’m working on. Like at Starbucks, they hang out, open their laptops. I want to make Boundary Waters a working gallery where artists can display their work.” When Karns – an otherwise laid-back guy – talks about his art, you get the sense that he’s going to jump up, grab tubes of color and start smearing them on things. As he gets into talking about what art means to him, he is constantly in motion. The room seems smaller as he takes you on this intimate journey through his world of color and texture. “I’ve been doing abstract mixed media for the past four years. I want to see how far I can take it,” he says. Pretty soon, he’s out of his seat, going around the room pointing to his paintings. He’s talking about how this one is made from a mixture of sand and sawdust, how another one plays with color the way that music plays with sound. “I want to push the limits of balance and harmony and contrast,” Karns says. “I love doing art. I just love doing it.” Karns’ work has been shown at Artistic Eye Gallery in Sacramento, Gold Rush Gallery in Gold Beach, Ore., and at Redding’s Library, ArtHop and City Hall. Showing his work is “like a game, comparing what I want to say and what the viewers see,” he says. He describes running his own business as “liberating and scary, trying to keep up with greeting customers, doing design work for projects, production and all the background work of being a business owner,” he says, crediting his wife Lisa as his inspiration. “If I can just get over this hump, I can hire someone and that will help substantially.” In the meantime, Karns is honing his multi-tasking skills. Watching him work in his shop is like watching modern dance. He seamlessly moves from one place and project to the next, talking to people, drawing, screen printing, dreaming and inspiring others to tap into their own creative energy. Karns is doing what so many people with artistic dreams fantasize about – making a living doing his art while pushing his own artistic boundaries. • Bruce Greenberg has lived as far away as Australia and as high up as Colorado’s continental divide.

Chasing Waterfalls Photos: Frank Kratofil

Story: Billy Brown

Nature Hike


It’s one thing to see a waterfall in a photo or movie, but it’s a whole other thing to turn a corner in the woods and feel in your chest the deep rumble of a waterfall that’s not yet in sight. With the late (and copious) rains that we’ve been getting for the last few months, the

North State’s waterfalls promise to be an even more appealing destination this summer. Whether you’re looking for a few good destination hikes, a good swimming hole or just a place to sit and observe the majestic power of millions of gallons of falling water, you’ve got numerous options. continued on page 68

July 2011 Enjoy 67

The Photo Op: Mossbrae Falls One of the most awe-inspiring waterfalls in the area, Mossbrae Falls in Dunsmuir is a 50-foot tall, 150-foot wide waterfall that seems to spawn from a wall of rocks and moss. It’s a great place for photos that will have your non-local friends asking when you moved to the Congo. “It’s a low, wide waterfall, but it’s very vernal,” says Joe Dodd, a lifelong Northern Californian who has spent countless days in the wilderness. “It’s very green.” In addition to admiring the view, people wade around in the pool or try to catch their dinner. “I’ve even seen people fly fishing out there,” Joe says. There are plenty of places to sit and relax, so feel free to pack a lunch and hang out; just be sure to pack your garbage out when you leave. Directions: From Redding, take I-5 North and exit at Dunsmuir Ave. Go South on Dunsmuir and take a left on Scarlett Way, go down the hill, cross the bridge and park at the trailhead. It will be approximately a 40-minute walk (one mile to railroad bridge) north along the railroad tracks and the Sacramento River. Follow trail along train tracks through trees to river and the falls. continued on page 70

Easy Access: Hedge Creek Falls Hedge Creek Falls in Dunsmuir consists of a 30-foot-tall cascade, shady surroundings and a minimal amount of hiking. It’s a great choice for people who want to enjoy a set of falls without having to endure a grueling hike. Joe Dodd loves its accessibility, saying, “It’s pretty much got its own exit – it’s right off the freeway. It’s so easy to get to, we use it as a place to stretch our legs on road trips.” The cascade freefalls over a wide opening that visitors can walk behind and explore. “You can probably get 10 or 15 people back there,” Dave says. “It’s pretty shady, too, and there are a lot of places to just relax and hang out.” Directions: From Redding, take I-5 North to Dunsmuir, then take exit #732 to Siskiyou Avenue. Turn left at the exit, then follow the signs to parking. Once you’re there, follow the railroad tracks to the falls.

Escape the Heat: Brandy Creek Falls If you’re looking for a way to escape the summer heat, Brandy Creek Falls in Whiskeytown National Recreational Area is a great option. It’s located in a box canyon, so visitors will find plenty of shade, cooler temperatures and spots in which to take a dip to cool off. Brandy Creek also offers a more interactive experience, with its five cascades split into upper and lower falls, and an upper trail that takes hikers right along and sometimes across the falls. David Dodd, Joe’s brother, likes that the area allows for a lot of exploration and rockhopping. “There’s even a little pool area up above the falls that you can sit in on hot days.” Directions: From Redding, take Highway 299 West and turn left on Kennedy Memorial Drive. Take a right across Whiskeytown Dam when the road forks, then turn left onto Brandy Creek Road. Drive down the dirt road for about 2.5 miles, and stay left at the Sheep Camp/Shasta Bally junction. Drive until you reach the area where the road is blocked by boulders, then park to the right. Take the trail on the left to the falls. The PCT Bonus: Burstarse Falls Sometimes you have to hike a bit farther to get a waterfall all to yourself. Burstarse Falls in Castle Crags lies at the end of a 3.25-mile offshoot of the Pacific Crest Trail off the Castella exit just south of Dunsmuir. It features one main 40-foot cascade, clear water and great views of the Crags in the distance. It would make a great side trip for people heading to Castle Crags or the Pacific Crest Trail. It’s not an easy hike to the falls, though. “You’ve really got to earn it,” Stein says, noting that the falls’ name may be derived from the fact that you have to “bust your (butt) to get there.” Directions: From Redding, take I-5 North, take the Castella exit and turn left. Go west about three miles on Castella, then park at the Dog Trail trailhead. Follow the trail until you meet up with the Pacific Crest Trail, then go west on the PCT. Once you get to Burstarse Creek (there’s a sign marking it), follow the user trail to the falls. Keep climbing past the first set of falls until you get to the big one. • Billy Brown, a Bay Area transplant with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, is a freelance writer who lives and plays in Redding with his wife.

The Beauty Queen: Potem Falls John Stein has visited countless North State waterfalls, thanks in part to his proficient geocaching career, and he asserts that the most beautiful falls in the area are Shasta Lake’s Potem Falls, a 70-foot waterfall surrounded by greenery, with a wide, swimmable pool and a lot of room to lounge around. “There’s a huge cascade, ferns everywhere; you’d think you were in Yosemite,” Stein says. A nine-mile dirt road from the freeway to the trail helps keep crowds to a minimum. It also makes having a four-wheel-drive vehicle a good idea. Directions: Take 299 East and exit on Fenders Ferry Road - it’s a dirt road, so four wheel drive is recommended. Take a left and drive nine miles to a pullout parking area on the left. Hike the 0.3 mile trail down to the falls.

What’s Cookin’

By: Lana Granfors

Photos: Kara Stewart Pimento Cheese Spread Prep time: 15 min./Total time: 15 min. Servings: 6 (2 lbs.)

Taste of Tennessee A recent trip to Tennessee to visit son Brian and his fiancé, Melissa, was filled with history, toe-tapping music and great food. Many restaurants offer fine cuisine, but it’s the southern flavors that stirred memories of my time growing up in the South, like the Pimento Cheese Spread Sandwiches found on menus. And of course, plenty of places serve up great barbecue. In Tennessee, pork is the meat of choice and is slow-cooked, shredded by hand and doused with sauce. Memphis’ pulled pork is served with a sweeter sauce flavored with pepper and molasses and served alongside coleslaw, cornbread and sweet potato fries. This coleslaw is a nice change from a mayonnaise-based slaw. Tennessee barbecue encompasses both pulled pork and slow-cooked pork ribs. With these recipes for the rub and sauce, you will be able to bring the taste of Tennessee right into your home. Y’all enjoy!

Pimento Cheese Spread INGREDIENTS 2 cups each shredded sharp cheddar and shredded medium cheddar cheese 1 (4 oz.) jar diced pimentos, drained 1 T vinegar 1 tsp. sugar ½ – 1 cup mayonnaise, adjust for creaminess Salt and pepper 1 T hot sauce Optional: 1 small jalapeno, seeded and diced PREPARATION Combine all ingredients and mix well.

Unwrap roast and place on rack in shallow roasting pan and place in center of oven. Cook 6 hours. Remove from oven. Cool for approximately 1 hour.

Store Front

name Crystal Stevens

occupation Create Freedom

WHAT’S IN STORE C rystal S tevens , C reate F reedom When Crystal Stevens was in grade school, she made stickers to sell to her friends during recess. Then when she was an 11-year-old girl living in Argentina, she and her mother found the jewelry supply district in Buenos Aires, a shopkeeper showed them some basic techniques and they were hooked. About four years ago, Stevens’ creativity worked itself into a business called Create Freedom. You can find some of her work at Enjoy the Store. How did you get started with creating jewelry? Several years ago, when my husband and I moved to Redding, I remember thinking, “It’d be great if I could make a living by selling jewelry.” At the time, it seemed like a bit of a stretch to live off a hobby, but as we’ve pursued it, it’s actually worked out. I didn’t want to have a business just for the sake of making a living, though – I wanted it to have a greater purpose. Tell us more about the greater purpose you envision. Create Freedom was birthed with the desire to use my creativity to help bring freedom to people’s lives – spiritually, emotionally and physically. Having grown up in other countries that are not as affluent as the United States, I’m well aware of how fortunate I am and it’s something I don’t take for granted. God has blessed me with so much and I want to do whatever I can to give from what He’s given me. From the time we began this business, we’ve given a minimum of 20 percent of our gross sales to organizations and individuals that are making a difference locally and overseas. We’ve committed to increasing our giving every year and eventually would love to give away more than we are keeping. 82 Enjoy July 2011

It sounds like it’s important to you to have a global impact. My husband and I already have had some incredible opportunities to travel and partner with some amazing organizations that are changing people’s lives. We actually met in Mozambique, Africa, while studying at a school that trains people who want to live in Third World countries. Overseas work and social justice is in our blood. Create Freedom is just one of the vehicles that helps us do some of what we love, and we know that it will evolve, change and continue to capture more of our mission and life vision in future years. What’s your favorite product to make? That changes from week to week. Lately, I’ve been having fun making jewelry organizers from wood frames and screen to store earrings and necklaces. The more of them I make, the more ideas I get of new things I want to try. How do you continue to improve your skills? I learn in many different ways. Mostly, I just see things which give me ideas, and then I go and try them and put my own unique spin on it. I often don’t have a finished product in mind – I just buy supplies that I love, sit down, start creating and see what comes out of it. Other times though I do “see” something in my mind and then sit down and make it. What do you love most about what you do? Besides being a business owner and wife to an amazing man, I am a mom to one of the sweetest little boys on the planet. One of my favorite things about doing what I do is the flexibility it gives me to spend as much time as I want with my family. There’s no better job than raising my son. Also, our business is something we can do as a family. Although I make most of the items, my husband helps me out a ton when we do shows and my son comes along to most of them, as well. We’ve gotten to travel to some fun places all along the West Coast and meet some really interesting people. What types of products will we find in Enjoy the Store? You can find some of our jewelry, glass magnets and jewelry organizers. •

People Ask Me Why I Would Rather Treat Their

Child Over Them... They say a picture is worth a thousand words... well, there they are! My children asleep in the car again with their little necks so twisted I hurt just looking at them. Every parent has seen their child like this and wondered to themselves, “Could that Hurt them!”. Whether it is from sleeping in the car, Superman diving off the dresser or even as early as a difficult birth, misalignments of the spine are more dangerous in children than in adults. After all, AS THE TWIG


would rather check and treat a child is if they are properly aligned they will grow to be healthier, stronger and better than their parents that weren’t checked. And isn't that what we all want for our children, for them to be better than us? No greater example of this comes from one of my amazing patients, Pete. He writes: In the 8th grade my parents and I were told I had scoliosis and I was given and uncomfortable and embarrassing brace to wear everyday for over a year! This treatment proved to be completely ineffective, so I was put through a painful surgery installing 2 rods and screws. The surgery was 8 frightening hours and was

followed by 7 days in a hospital, 5 IVs, spinal drip and a catheter. Faced with limited movement and the inability to pick up more than 20 lb., my life was totally changed (and not for the better). In addition, I suffered chronic headache and severe allergies that required a bottle of Afrin a week. I knew I needed help! I had a great friend that was under care with Dr. Kremer and I was watching amazing improvements in his life through his treatments. I never thought chiropractic could help me, but after a few months of care my LIFE LONG


never know what would have happened if my parents had taken me to a good, CORRECTIVE CARE chiropractor before my surgery. Now I tell everyone to get checked so they can have a choice. It’s more than I had!

His story and others like it keep me passionate about checking and treating all children! That is why, this month, all children are checked for only $7 in either of my offices. And because we are a family office, Well-behaved parents are welcome to be checked at that time for the same. Help me start our children off stronger and healthier than we did! That way, the next fall they have we make sure heals just as great on the inside as the outside. Yours In Good Health, Dr. Kremer

Catalyst Redding Young Professionals should be a failure. It takes members of “the MTV generation,” puts them in mostly unofficial committees, offers no funding and tells them to enrich their community. Yet the group has contributed more than $26,000 to local charities through 23 events in 11 months, not including monthly business meetings, socials and weekly soccer games. Its method of defying the odds and shirking notions of feckless 20- or 30-somethings is simple: the group wanted to do something positive, tried it out and succeeded (repeatedly). Catalyst’s mission is to provide an opportunity for young professionals in Redding to meet, learn and be inspired; help create, promote and stimulate new and existing culture; help nurture a youthful energy and have fun with each other while doing it. Facilitators Ashley Wagar and Chris Haedrich describe the group’s origin as “exploratory.” In March 2010, they gathered like-minded friends, emailed some acquaintances and met at C.R. Gibbs to determine whether they were crazy, or crazy like a fox. Were they realizing a legitimate void or just overthinking their individual frustrations? “That meeting was to throw it out there and say, ‘Is this something July 2011 Enjoy 85

Redding needs?’” Wagar recalls. The overwhelming response was affirmative, and energy quickly became effort. Haedrich credits the momentum to members desiring a social and cultural landscape akin to what they witnessed in larger cities. Since that meeting, Catalyst has staged music, film and art events as well as quarterly breakfasts designed to motivate professionals. Its members have assisted with benefits for Riverfront Playhouse, Shasta Women’s Refuge and the North State Symphony. Their efforts raised almost $4,000 for the Turtle Bay Exploration Park through just three live music events, and the Telluride and Banff film tours netted more than $17,000. The membership requirements are bare. There are no attendance conditions, no applications, no dues; members control their involvement. “It works well because many young professionals are focusing on their career, (raising) a family or pursuing education,” Haedrich explains. “Everybody has different schedules, goals and commitment levels. That’s the niche: Allowing young people to get involved in the community as much or as little as they want.” This flex method has worked so well that one challenge is managing the rapid growth and helping members realize their individual vision. When new members sign up weekly and the group averages two commitments every month, quality control becomes an issue. “We created a process where we help people think through their idea,” Wagar explains. “We try to figure out how to give someone the right tools to create an event and be successful.” Catalyst has thrived at raising money precisely because it has none of its own. “We wanted to keep the power away from any one person or committee, so everybody has the opportunity to come and mold Redding,” says Haedrich. Less money requires more effort from the membership. “We’re very grassroots because there aren’t a lot of funds,” Wagar explains. “We do what we can with limited resources.” More legwork means more planning, more communication, and, as it turns

out, more fun. Catalyst has been remarkably rewarding as a social hub for its members. The 50 or so active members work uncommonly well together and regularly socialize outside of official events. The group’s affection for its city is another driving force behind its success. “We recognize that great culture exists in Redding,” Haedrich says. “We’re not trying to change it, we’re trying to add to it and help get the other events out there.” Nor is it out to compete with other like-minded groups; Catalyst endeavors for collaborative philanthropy as often as possible. The long-term goal is basic: Fill a need as long as there is one. “It’s up to Redding, really,” Haedrich explains. “We’re not going to force anything that isn’t needed. Redding has to want it.” Catalyst is always looking for event sponsors, and of course, attendees. “People see the name ‘Catalyst Young Professionals’ and don’t realize that these events are for more than just young people,” Wagar explains. “We happen to be young, but the events are for everyone.” Haedrich agrees: “We’re looking for our first centenarian attendee.” No doubt they’ll succeed at that, too. • Kallie Markle A native and mostly lifelong Redding resident, Kallie holds B.A.s in literature and theology, which means she’s someone who barely gets by on a love of reading and writing.
