The Long and Winding Road that o t e m WelcoValley s s a r G

Hi Kids, Dad and I decided to take the “scenic route” to Grass Valley_there’s so much Gold Rush history along Highway 49 that Dad says we should stop in Angels Camp to see where his relatives settled in 1852. It’s a pretty trip, but just 2 lanes for miles_can you imagine that Dad’s family came all the way from Italy to seek their fortune here in California? We’ll be in Grass Valley tomorrow_we’ve heard so much about it from Jenn and Brian_really looking forward to seeing them and having what Jenn calls The Grass Valley Experience!

Hope that you’re having fun staying with Aunt Fran, give them, and especially Kevin and Chris, our love. Call you when we get settled in Grass Valley. Love, Mom & Dad 8

Hi Kids, We’ve arrived in Angels Camp! Couldn’t resist sharing a fun story_this is a very interesting historic town with a real sense of humor. They’ve chosen to call themselves “Home of the Jumping Frog.” Too much fun! Seems that Mark Twain lived here in the 1860s and heard a story from the bartender at the Angels Camp Hotel about a fellow named Jim Smiley and wrote “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.” The town’s founding fathers took the story to heart and started a jumping frog contest around 1928! It’s turned into the annual Frog Jump Jubilee held during the Calaveras County Fair! Sorry we missed it_bet that it’s a hoot! We visited the Angels Camp Museum this afternoon, and HAD to visit the Mark Twain exhibit. Then went to the historical society in search of the family records, Dad wants to see where the family lived and is buried. Really fascinating to learn how folks lived during the Gold Rush! I hope that they have photos of his ancestors. Tonight we’re going to dinner in Old Town, and because Dad is Italian, we’re going to Crusco’s Ristorante_it’s reputed to be THE BEST restaurant in Angels Camp. Don’t you LOVE the pictures on Facebook of Dad wearing the bib they gave him to keep the pasta off his shirt? Sweet Dad_he’s such a good sport! More when we get to Grass Valley. . . Love Mom & Dad P.S. found this really cool map of the Golden Chain Hwy

You can’t help but be enchanted by a town whose streets were paved with gold

M

en, women and children have been busily engaged for the last few days picking over every load of rock brought into town for street repair work in the heart of the city. The rock comes from the Massachusetts Hill mine and several valuable specimens of gold bearing quartz were found on the streets. This caused much excitement, and as each wagon load arrives, it is picked over by the specimen hunters before it is placed on the streets. By 1909, Grass Valley had progressed from the rough and tumble mining camp of 1848 to a vibrant town with flourishing commercial enterprises, theatrical entertainment, brothels and gold mines.

Today, Grass Valley continues to flourish, the historic downtown footprint remains intact, and the streets are paved with the golden charm of the bygone era, creating a stage for a dynamic mix of upscale specialty retail and services. You’ll meet many of them in the following pages. STREETS OF GRASS VALLEY ARE PAVED WITH GOLD — Rock From Mine Dump Full of Precious Metal* *San Francisco Call, Volume 106, Number 67, 6 August 1909 — STREETS OF GRASS VALLEY ARE PAVED WITH GOLD

Gr Well HELLO from Grass Valley! Dad and I arrived this afternoon and stopped at the GV Visitors Center for a recommendation for a hotel. What a surprise to step into “Grass Valley’s Living Room!” Didn’t realize that there was SO much to see and do here lots to keep us busy until Brian and Jenn return home on Thursday. I posted a selfie of us on Facebook with the Chamber Lady in the Living Room! Lots more, but we’re going to lunch at Kane’s then headed to the hotel. Love, Mom & Dad

elcome to Grass Valley! If you’re undecided about “Where Should I Sleep Tonight,” there are options to suit every preference. Bed and Breakfast lodging in historic homes, quaint inns, historic hotels, full service suite hotels, and local versions of two national hotels. Our community hoteliers are please to have the opportunity to offer visitors a taste of the hospitality that has made Grass Valley legendary. And we’ve got History! Ghost sightings are not unusual in our historic hotels. The Holbrooke Hotel, which opened in 1862 in downtown Grass Valley, reports that included among their prestigious guests are President Ulysses S. Grant and Mark Twain, and ghosts of past guests have taken up residence in the hotel! Recently, the Travel Channel’s “the Dead Files” crew were onsite doing a paranormal investigation of the property. Whether or not the resident ghost experience is on your accommodation priority list, keep in mind that rooms aren’t as plentiful in Grass Valley and Nevada City as in larger communities. If you’re planning on coming to attend one of our community events, book well in advance! Services and amenities are plentiful, and most establishments are pet friendly, so come prepared to be pampered and definitely bring your beloved canine companion! Recommended lodging establishments are listed in the Grass Valley Chamber Membership Directory. If your still unsure or undecided “where to sleep” give us a call at the Grass Valley Visitors Center(530) 273-4667 and we’ll find you just the right accommodation.

Hi you two! WELL, we’ve checked into the Grass Valley Courtyard Suites, and it’s just wonderful! Dad and I LOVE the room, their great breakfast and “wine time!” Today we’re headed out to explore_ Latte first at Summer Thyme’s on The Avenue then Up the hill to EMPIRE MINE for the tours and to stroll the grounds. Diego’s on The Avenue is beckoning with their tempting Chilean cuisine (yum) for lunch! So great that we can just walk from the hotel to everything in the historic downtown. Dad’s voted for more pasta, so it’s Cirino’s at Main Street for Italian, then a concert at Center for the Arts. Brian & Jenn are picking us up in the morning_can’t wait to see them! Hugs and Love to Aunt Fran & the kids, Call if you miss us! Big Love to you! Mom & Dad

Welcome to GRASS VALLEY we’re all about. . . .

COMMUNITY We Invite You to Enjoy All that Grass Valley has to Offer!

T

here’s more to Grass Valley than our historic downtown. As the community has grown and the city expanded its boundaries, pockets of commerce have sprung up along the length and breadth of Grass Valley to serve the needs of an expanding and diverse population.

Our performing arts organizations present world class entertainment and music festivals throughout the year, we have a cutting edge technology institute, and a thriving tech industry. Both Grass Valley and Nevada City have won accolades and many “best of” awards for the quality of livability in our communities.

Daily life is rich with choice and opportunity. The ancient healing arts live comfortably alongside traditional medicine. The Faith Community is as diverse as the population, but comes together in unity to serve the needs of the community.

As a whole, we espouse the “Support Local- Live Local” philosophy, strive to be good custodians of our region and celebrate what makes us unique as individuals and as a community.

While we live “on the scenic route” there’s nothing rural about life in western Nevada County. We’ve preserved our history and enjoy small town charm, but have many big city services and amenities.

So we invite you to come, explore and perhaps you too will become enchanted with our community and consider making western Nevada County your forever home!

My Favorite Things... Why I live in this amazing community 4

By Mardie Caldwell

W

hen I moved my family to Nevada County over 20 years ago, I was attracted to the natural beauty of the area. The first time I arrived here, I noticed how many stars I could see in the beautiful night sky. It reminded me of my childhood. I wanted my children to be raised viewing stars each night with clean blue skies each day. Even today, it feels like I am on vacation as I step out into our beautiful community. It’s an escape from the congestion and rush of large cities. The historical and recreational qualities were also a great draw to us. Weekly visitors to Nevada County share that they too sense there is something very special about our area when they drive up Highway 49 and gaze upon the wonderful tall pines, snowcapped mountains, the lush spring dogwoods and spectacular fall foliage. It is no wonder so many are drawn to our lovely community. Even with this visual appeal, there is more to discover in this historical area. Weekly our thriving community is buzzing with an abundance of activities from art events, seasonal festivals, hiking, boating, farmers markets, concerts, wine tasting and studio tours. There always seems to be something to do. The one comment I often hear is the fact that Nevada County is a very peaceful place

to live and work and where the quality-of-life is enjoyed year round. What contributes to our rich community is when neighbors really care, service clubs thrive, and art is alive. I thoroughly enjoy the historically preserved buildings of downtown Grass Valley and Nevada City, where unique shops are nestled in buildings that date back to the mid-1800s; each with a story of their own. Ore carts, color brimming over flower boxes and crystal clear streams of gold still run through town, reminding us of the rich history few other towns reflect, while bridging the past and the future together. Shopping experience is made easy with a wide selection of thoughtful and tasty gifts rewarding visitors with many popular specialty restaurants that offer local fare and wines—some only available in Nevada county. You have to try handmade Cornish pasties and luscious deserts created by top chefs in the area. I smile when I see happy children and grandparents alike taking in the long seasons of good weather. Isn’t one of life’s pleasures about enjoying our family, friends and community while living well? In a busy world, it is good to take time to pause, reflect and spend time, perhaps even a lifetime, in a place that is friendly and peaceful like our Nevada County. Welcome to our community where life is very good.

Hi Kids, we’re now happily settled into Brian & Jenn’s guest room! What a treat to be with them again. And the stories_endless praise for this community_they’re so happy with their choice to relocate. Jenn is taking me out to for a bit of that Grass Valley Experience she’s boasted about. Brian and Dad are going to play golf at the Nevada County Country Club. With the holiday days away, we’re debating dining in or dining out. Jenn’s a great cook, but we have some terrific options that don’t require washing dishes! We’ll see what Dad and Brian think, but whatever we do it will be FUN! What about you? Has Aunt Fran planned a big holiday meal? I posted the pictures we took in downtown Grass Valley_ doesn’t Diego’s PANQUEQUE look yummy? Love, Mom & Dad

My Favorite Winter Squash Holiday Side Dish 4

Shared by Robin Galvan-Davies

Roasted Squash with Mint and Toasted Pumpkin Seeds Published in Bon Appétit November 2011 Photograph by Christopher Testani

I

love to cook, but with a non-stop busy life, when it comes to choosing a recipe, I’m looking for simple, uncomplicated and (yes!) healthy. Entertaining during the holidays has always been joyful part of life, and while turkey has always been center stage on our table, throughout the years, the traditional holiday menu has become a

bit stale. As my mother would say “very brown— everything on the table is brown!” With that in mind, I’ve collected many side dish recipes that are wonderful companions to roasted meats or simply stand on their own that add beautiful color, texture and flavor and are NOT brown! This is one of my favorites~

.......... Recipe by Susan Spungen

SERVINGS: 8–10 Ingredients: 2 medium acorn or butternut squash or small sugar pumpkins (about 3 lb. total) 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper ¼ cup shelled pumpkin seeds (pepitas) 1 tablespoon aged balsamic vinegar ¼ cup fresh mint leaves, torn Preparation: Preheat oven to 425°. Cut squash into 1½”-thick wedges, leaving skin on. Scrape off seeds and strings with a large spoon and discard. Coat wedges with 3 Tbsp. oil and season with salt and pepper. Lay wedges cut side down on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast, carefully turning halfway through, until golden brown on both sides, about 30 minutes. Heat remaining 1 Tbsp. oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add pumpkin seeds to cook, swirling pan often, until seeds are puffed and brown but still have a bit of green, 4–5 minutes. Transfer seeds to paper towels to drain. Sprinkle with salt. DO AHEAD: Squash and toasted pumpkin seeds can be made 4 hours ahead. Let stand separately at room temperature. Rewarm squash before serving. Transfer squash to a large platter and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle squash with torn mint leaves and toasted pumpkin seeds.

Recipe from one of Your Favorite Chefs

Tucker Cirino

I

cannot remember a Cirino Family Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday without this wonderful combination of autumn/winter flavors. It seems to pair beautifully with every other holiday food item that finds its way to the table this time of year. The most important thing to remember is that it is on the table. We must not forget because it means someone took the time and effort to honor the tradition of the season. This, to my mind, is essential to simply “honor the tradition” of whatever it may be in your home especially when children are on board. You see, tradition gives us optimism, looking

forward to that special flavor or smell or activity that happens at the same time every year. Whatever it may be, this sameness helps ground young people and provides foundational roots so that when they and we are adults, we can say that’s what we did and that’s where I come from…that’s part of me…and in our hearts we get to feel young and secure and comfortable. This to me is the holiday spirit. Passing that on to the young is a true holiday present that could be cherished by generations or hopefully, forever. Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas Jerry & Tucker Cirino

..........

Cirino’s Holiday Cranberry Sauce Ingredients: 1 lb. bag of fresh cranberries 1 Granny Smith apple (peeled and cubed in 1/2” size) 1 cup of sugar Juice of 1 lime 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon clove Preparation:

Combine first three ingredients in sauce pan. Saute at low heat until cranberry skins break and desired consistency is reached. Add spice and lime juice. Serve at room temperature. We serve our Holiday Cranberry Sauce on any grilled or roasted meats. Postcards from Grass Valley

When is a Pie Not a Pie? When it’s a WORK of ART! Robin’s Favorite Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie- Courtesy of Ken at the

BUGGIN’ – STRAWBERRY RHUBARB PIE

PHOTO COURTESY OF HUNGRYRABBIT.COM

S

o tell me honestly, does your Rhubarb Pie look like this? My mother’s certainly didn’t, but she baked a heck of a Rhubarb Pie. She preferred making pies to making cakes (good choice—her cakes always turned out lopsided!) and we always clamored for her to bypass the pumpkin and pecan for rhubarb. She passed her recipe down to me, and my rhubarb and strawberry-rhubarb pie fillings are killer, but the crust? Yuck! I failed pie crust in 7th grade Home Ec., and, confession time—I have totally relied on Pillsbury ready-made crusts. But, scooting around the internet, looking at holiday recipes I came across this glorious image of an unbaked strawberry rhubarb pie—a true piece of culinary art, and Ken of the Hungry Rabbit inspired me to push my culinary comfort level to the max and go for this making this upscale pie crust for my childhood favorite! It takes a bit of practice, but the end result is worth the time and patience it takes to create the decorations. Here’s Ken’s recipe, and have fun—remember that “holiday pie crust cutters” (new improved version of the traditional metal cookie cutters) and a sharp knife or pizza cutter are all the tools you’ll need! Use these techniques to decorate any lattice topped pie; you’re only limited by your imagination, so take the plunge!

STRAWBERRY RHUBARB FILLING 2 pounds rhubarb (about 7 cups), trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces 1-1/4 cups (8-3/4 ounces) granulated sugar 1 pound (3 to 4 cups) fresh strawberries, hulled, halved if less than 1 inch, quartered if more than 1 inch 3 tablespoons instant tapioca 1/2 teaspoon rose water (optional) 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/8 teaspoon almond extract ASSEMBLY

YIELD: ONE 9-INCH PIE INGREDIENTS: ALL-BUTTER PIE CRUST 2-1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (12-1/2 ounces), plus additional flour for work surface 1 teaspoon fine sea salt 1 tablespoon granulated sugar 16 tablespoons unsalted butter (2 sticks), cold, cut into 1/2-inch cubes and frozen for 10 minutes 3 tablespoons sour cream 1/3 cup ice water, or more if needed 46

Postcards from Grass Valley

Prepared pie dough Strawberry Rhubarb Filling 1 tablespoon ice water 2-3 tablespoons granulated sugar DIRECTIONS: ALL-BUTTER PIE CRUST 1. Process flour, salt, and sugar together in food processor until combined, about 3 seconds. Add butter and pulse until butter is size of large peas, about ten 1-second pulses.


2. Using fork, mix sour cream and 1/3 cup ice water in small bowl until combined. Add half of sour cream mixture to flour mixture; pulse for three 1-second pulses. Repeat with remaining sour cream mixture. Pinch dough with fingers; if dough is floury, dry, and does not hold together, add 1 to 2 tablespoons ice water and process until dough forms large clumps and no dry flour remains, three to five 1-second pulses. 3. Turn dough out onto work surface. Divide dough into 2 balls and flatten each into 6-inch disk; wrap each disk in plastic and refrigerate until firm but not hard, 1 to 2 hours, before rolling. (Dough can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours. Let thoroughly chilled dough stand at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before rolling.) 4. Roll one on lightly floured surface into approximately a 12-13-inch circle and transfer to a pie plate. Trim overhang of dough and crimp decoratively around the edges. Roll out second disc into a 12-inch round or into various sizes (flowers, stripes, etc) as per your design. Wrap all dough in plastic and refrigerate for 20 minutes or until ready to use.

rhubarb mixture and stir to combine. Set aside to cool. ASSEMBLY 1. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 425 degrees. Transfer filling to chilled dough-lined plate and spread into even layer. Decoratively place prepared pie dough pieces on to of filling. Brush dough pieces thoroughly with extra water (careful not to drag filling onto the dough) and sprinkle with granulated sugar. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. 2. Place pie on parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet and bake until crust is set and begins to brown, about 25 minutes. Rotate pie and reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees; continue to bake until crust is deep golden brown and filling is bubbling, 30 to 40 minutes longer. If edges of pie begin to get too brown before pie is done, cover loosely with parchment or aluminum foil. Let cool on wire rack for 2-1/2 hours before serving.

STRAWBERRY RHUBARB FILLING 1. Combine rhubarb and sugar in bowl and microwave for 12 minutes. Stir and continue to microwave until sugar is mostly dissolved, about 1 minute longer. Stir in 1 cup strawberries and set aside for 30 minutes, stirring once halfway through. PHOTO COURTESY OF HUNGRYRABBIT.COM

2. Drain rhubarb mixture through fine-mesh strainer set over large saucepan. Return drained rhubarb mixture to bowl and set aside. Add remaining strawberries to rhubarb liquid and cook over medium-high heat until strawberries are very soft and mixture is reduced to 1-1/2 cups, about 10 to 15 minutes. Mash berries with fork (mixture does not have to be smooth). Add strawberry mixture, tapioca, rose water (if use) and extracts to drained Postcards from Grass Valley

One of Northern California’s Earliest Golf Courses 4

I

COURTESY OF SEA ISLAND LIFE MAGAZINE

n 1926, one of Northern California’s early golf courses took shape here at the Nevada County Country Club. It was built on the longtime Worthington family ranch and the former family home, a nicely trimmed Victorian-era structure, became the Clubhouse. The golf course was designed by pioneer Northern California golf architect Sam Whiting, who also in 1926 designed the Old Brockway Golf Course, which still operates at Kings Beach, Lake Tahoe. Whiting, a former English professor at the University of California, left a large and impressive legacy to California golfers. He designed the Stockton Golf and Country Club in 1914 and then went on create the Lake Course (1917) and the Ocean Course (1924) at San Francisco’s

Pioneer Northern California golf architect Sam Whiting designed the NCCC golf course in 1926

famed Olympic Club. He teamed with Willie Watson to design the original Harding Park Golf Course in San Francisco in 1925. Whiting also designed Sacramento’s William Land Golf Course in 1924 and the Sonoma Golf Club in 1928. Whiting also served as the first president of the Northern California Golf Association (NCGA). The land now occupied by NCCC was settled in the mid-1850s by Timothy Worthington, who had come west from Cincinnati, Ohio, and who was soon joined in Grass Valley by his brother James. They cleared the land, raised horses, and raced their horses at the local Glenbrook Race Track. After Timothy died, James married Luvia Damon and together they renamed their property Pie Plant Ranch. They operated a dairy and built a nice home (now the clubhouse). James is credited with planting the beautiful magnolia trees that still stand today. The property was used as a private residence until a group of local golf enthusiasts got together in the early 1920s to plan the Nevada County Country Club. Among the founders and early members were Elza Kilroy, who would become known as “Mr. Nevada City” for his civic leadership; and his wife, Luvia, a descendant of the Worthingtons. NCCC has been organized in its current form as a semi-private club since 1950.

HI Kids, After breakfast this morning Brian & Jenn took us to the Nevada County Historical Society. Brian said that they have more than 20,000 historic documents & photos of people, places and things, AND we’re pretty sure that we found where Great-Great-Great Uncle Bob is buried! It seems that he worked on the railroad_so we went to the Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum to investigate. Loved this painting so much that we bought the post card & the puzzle! I didn’t realize that this community is famous for SO MANY things_old & new. Did you know that Alexander Rossi who won the Indy 500 is from Nevada City? REALLY, and he attends the same church as B&J! Dad & Brian are off to another day of golf and stories_we’re going to shop for more local goodies to bring home to you and enjoy some pampering at Wolf Mountain Day Spa after a “spa” lunch at Summer Thyme’s. Love, Mom & Dad

‘location shopping’ where getting EVERYTHING and for LESS was promoted and promised.” Grande goes on to say, “As awareness of our local economy becomes more dependent on where we spend our money, consumers are increasingly looking for better ways to support ‘local’ while still maintaining the best value and convenience. I believe that our shopping trends are moving back into neighborhoods where we look to our community to meet our needs. It is the locally owned businesses that offer personal, friendly service at a greater value than that of the bustling super malls. We are committed to rebuilding the trust of today’s consumer.”

hen the phrase “BUY LOCAL” comes up where does your mind take you? Downtown Grass Valley, Nevada City maybe Auburn? Do you think of locally owned or locally located? Over a century ago, Nevada County enjoyed summer weekends at Lake Olympia, where summer fun and cooling off were always on the menu. Today, summer fun can be found in what is now Olympia Plaza Shopping Center where there is something for everyone. Whether its breakfast, lunch, dinner, quality gift buying, home décor, dry cleaning or make up—spa treatments, you’ll find it all in the Olympia Plaza Shopping Center located between Brunswick and Sutton in Grass Valley. As quoted by Joe Grande owner of Grande Wood Designs, “I remember as a kid growing up our shopping was done in a local neighborhood area of small retail stores offering everything from clothing to pizza. Local residents could get lunch, pick up dry cleaning and a gift for an up-coming birthday in less than a half hour. Over time those neighborhood stores fell away to mega-malls and big box stores. Local shopping was replaced by the

One person told me the shores of Lake Olympia (Glenbrook Basin) reached over by Burger King on Main Street near Brunswick Road; another said it was located right where The Union building currently sits; and more said it was down in that open area by the corner of Sutton Way and Idaho Maryland Road. 56

I can’t wait for the two of you to experience Grass Valley. It’s so different than what we expected. We had this vision of a sleepy, rural town, and it’s anything BUT! You will have a blast with all the outdoor activities and the entertainment! This morning Dad and Brian are out hiking at Empire Mine and this afternoon we’re going to a classical music concert. Jenn told me that there’s ALWAYS something truly sensational to do. She loves the music festivals in the summer and fall at the Fairgrounds, and looks forward to the live theater performances. After the concert we’re touring the Wine Tasting Rooms in town_because Jenn says, the wineries are a big part of the Grass Valley Experience. She loves the Cab Franc at Lucchesi and says we’ll love it, too. Oops_out of room_I’ll save the rest for our phone call! XXOOXX 66

The Foothills are ALIVE with the Sound of Music! 4

By Ken Hardin Artistic Director, InConcert Sierra

L

ike most of Nevada County’s storied history, the foundation of our thriving modern day arts scene came about because of individuals who wanted world-class entertainment, like that found in big cities, but offered close to home in the Sierra foothills. In June 1946, shortly after the end of World War II, the Grass Valley Chamber of Commerce convened a group of ‘culture-hungry’ residents at the Bret Harte Inn to discuss the need to bring “talented artists and entertainers of national fame” to Nevada County. That gathering gave rise to one of the county’s first arts nonprofits, Twin Cities Concert Association (now known as InConcert Sierra) and paved the way for the vibrant arts scene our community enjoys today. I have been with the organization for more than 20 years, providing artistic direction, performance and leadership. While much has changed in the past seven decades, the same vision that brought the Twin Cities Concert Association into being — the desire to have high-quality entertainment in Nevada County — remains fundamental to our local audiences today and is also experienced by performers who visit. On Oct. 10, 1946 the Twin Cities Concert Association presented our first artist, famed Metropolitan Opera tenor Charles Kullman, before a sold out crowd at the Grass Valley Veterans Memorial Building. Following his performance, Kullman was quoted in The Union complimenting the crowd. “It is a delight to have an audience like this.

Postcards from Grass Valley

I like Grass Valley and I would rather sing here than in Vienna, and I really mean that,” Kullman said. It’s a sentiment expressed routinely by those who perform here. InConcert Sierra continues to attract classical music’s top emerging artists and world class musicians from around the globe to perform in Grass Valley — from violinist Joshua Bell to pianist Emanuel Ax to the Vienna Boys Choir. Year after year, our programming carries on the tradition of filling houses, like that premiere concert in 1946. What I am most proud of at InConcert Sierra is that these are not just performances, they are deeply moving experiences for our audiences and the musicians alike. From the pre-concert forum, where patrons and artists get to know one another, on through to the encore, it’s gratifying to watch the intense reactions to the music. Our audiences truly embrace great classical music! Our 2016-17 season will feature more new discoveries and returning favorites alike. We have pianist Sam Haywood, who performed here for InConcert with Joshua Bell in October 2015, returning for a special appearance that was requested by both our patrons and Sam himself! I’m always delighted at the large number of people that turn out in our small neck of the woods to hear great music. If you have not yet experienced InConcert Sierra, I invite you to join us for a performance that just may shift your perspective on classical music.

n western Nevada County, viticulture and winemaking has been a time honored tradition since the Gold Rush Era. But, contemporary wine production as we know it re-emerged during the 1970’s with the commercial success of Nevada City Winery. Throughout Northern California wine making enjoyed renewed popularity during the 1970’s, and for good reason. The Sierra Vinters Association AVA (American Viticultural Area) information explains why western Nevada county excels as a wine growing region. “The Sierra Vintners, AVA Region, was established in 1987 on the western edge of Nevada County. The Sierra Foothills AVA is roughly 160 miles long, stretching south from Yuba County to Mariposa County. Like much of Northern California, the area has a classic Mediterranean climate, with warm summers and rainy winters that often include snow in higher elevations. Nevada County’s four distinct seasons, and its range of elevations and landscapes, makes it a fertile home for more than forty varieties of wine grapes, ranging from Chardonnay, Merlot, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon to Cabernet Franc, Barbera, Sangiovese and Tempranillo. Grape growers and winemakers here have learned to use the variety that nature gives them, and to combine it with premiere winemaking techniques and styles to create some of California’s most surprising award-winning wines. “ To learn more about the Sierra Vintners, visit the Grass Valley Visitor’s information Center at 128 East Main Street in downtown Grass Valley.

To Have &To Hold 4

By Robin Galvan-Davies

F

or the last century and a half, tradition has played a strong part in laying the foundation of local culture, but Nevada County has been inhabited by the can-do, do it my way folks, whose independent spirit has shaped our community. When it comes to weddings, Nevada County has long been considered a premier destination, prized for it historic properties and magnificent gardens and scenic grandeur. And, fully woven into Nevada County bridal preparation, perhaps influenced by our Cornish ancestors, and dating as far back as the mid-19th century England, is the bridal rhyme:

“Something old, Something new, Something borrowed, Something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe.”

represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness; something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity; and a sixpence in your shoe is a wish for good fortune and prosperity, although this remains largely a British custom.” Wedding ceremonies and bridal practices may follow the outline laid by tradition, but weddings in Nevada County can be far from traditional and are often unconventional. With that in mind, whatever vision the bride may have for “The Wedding”—her choice of gown, transport to the ceremony (limo, horse drawn carriage, hay wagon or tractor?)—the content of the ceremony itself and theme for the reception, her “do-it-my-way” dream wedding day can be turned into reality by the dedicated artisans and professionals here in Nevada County who are adept at creating memories that will last a lifetime.

We all know it, and repeat it today, but have you wondered why? According to The Knot “This tradition comes from an Old English rhyme (“Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe”), and the four objects that the bride adds to her wedding outfit or carries with her on the big day are just good luck charms. Don’t stress too much about them—they are the little tokens of love your mother, sister, other relatives, and attendants will give you at the eleventh hour (although you can give them to yourself, too).

The Community Continues to Raise the Bar—

increasing the quality of life for all. 4

By Sandy Jacobson

I

magine going through of your house each room of your house and trying to decide what trinkets will fit into a single bedroom. Believe it or not, there are professionals available to help you decide. As for me, I would take Gramma Julie’s rocking chair, some of my tools (including duct tape) and an i-Pad with pictures, games and music. The rest would go to nieces and nephews or a thrift store (if they want it). Sadly, this is what our parents face when it’s too challenging or unsafe to live alone in their own home. As the Executive Director for Gold Country Community Services, I feel it is my duty to help prevent or delay these sad moments. Gold Country Community Services is a non-profit organization that among other things provides Western Nevada County seniors with basic support services that enable them to live independently in their own homes. This job isn’t always easy up here in the foothills but thanks to the spirit and commitment of volunteers our clients get to go to bed each night in their own homes, surrounded by the memories of a lifetime. Our largest and most notable service is our Meals on Wheels Program. In a typical year, we help support more than 400 homebound seniors recover from an illness or maintain their health by delivering hot, nutritionally balanced meals on a daily basis. Often times I wonder what is more important to our clients, the meal or the pleasure and sense of security they get knowing that someone is checking in on them daily. Many of our drivers add a personal touch by bringing in the newspaper or bringing the grandkids along

88

Postcards from Grass Valley

while they’re visiting. Many of our seniors have no family so our drivers sometime fill that void. Maybe not as noticeable, but just as important is our Gold Country Café. Here, seniors come to socialize and eat a hot nutritional meal. The Café is much like the TV series “Cheers” without the bar stools. Most of the folks who have lunch with us live alone and just like to be part of a good conversation. Who doesn’t? The list of things we do for seniors keeps growing because others in our community see a need that must be filled. That’s how our firewood program began. Having cut, split and stack wood as a teen I know for a fact that it isn’t easy gathering wood for the winter. I can’t imagine it gets much easier when you’re 80. So a few year back, a group of our volunteers came up with an APP for that. This APP provides wood to heat the homes of those who can’t afford to. Last year, our “Wood Chucks” volunteered to cut, split and deliver about 200 cords of wood to heat 140 senior homes. While we have excellent Assisted Living Facilities in Nevada County, they are not always the right solution and for some these facilities are unaffordable. We also have a community of volunteers committed to helping those who need assistance. So when it’s your turn to volunteer, what roll will you play? Will you be a Guardian Angel, Wood Chuck or sit next to me at a board meeting to help craft a plan to sustain all of these services?

Change the Menu, Change the World 4

By Aimee Retzler Co-Director, Sierra Harvest

W

hen my family moved from the Bay Area in 2007 to an intimate Sierra Foothills community, we were immediately drawn to the local food and farming scene in Nevada County. We saw people heading to farm potlucks with homemade dishes in their arms, farmers markets sprouting up with abundance that reminded me of my grandparent’s farm in Ohio, and downtown streets that were closed for an evening to celebrate the local farming community with a farm to table candlelight dinner. Ten years later, we celebrate our rich ranching and agricultural heritage with an organization that is leading the way to a more sustainable food and farming future. Sierra Harvest educates, inspires and connects families to fresh, local, seasonal foods. We accomplish this by offering farm to school programming, supporting farm fresh school meals, mentoring aspiring farmers and

gardeners, celebrating our local food community and advocating for a just, sustainable food system. On a recent farm field trip, a 6th grader stopped the farm docent to ask why they were bypassing the kale. The farm docent replied, “Well I wasn’t going to have kale as a stop on the tour today.” The boy looked at her and said, “But I would really like to taste that dino kale.” The farm docent took that detour and picked a few farm fresh leaves for the children to taste. When she turned around, there were 15 outstretched hands waiting to eat a raw, leafy, green vegetable. Sierra Harvest is part of a community that continues to raise the bar on what being a locavore really means. We envision a bright future where all residents and visitors alike have access to farm fresh local foods. Come join us and grab a seat at the table. We are changing the menu and the world, one plate and one farmer at a time.

Improving The Health of Our Community 4

By Lisa Davies

hapa-De Indian Health is committed to being a partner in the Grass Valley community and to promoting and improving the health of our neighborhoods. We currently serve over 20,000 active patients between our two health centers and have the privilege of providing care to our area’s most underserved and vulnerable populations; American Indians, Alaska Natives and low-income individuals and families. Our health centers, located in Grass Valley and Auburn, offer adult and pediatric primary medical care, nutrition and health education, women’s health services, dental care, mental health counseling, psychiatry, and pharmacy services. We opened our doors in Grass Valley in 1997 and built our current health center located on East Main Street in 2008. Over the years we have continued to expand our services and staffing to accommodate the needs of the community. Although challenging, given that the need for affordable, high-quality healthcare continues to outpace the capacity of local provid-

ers, our committed staff work tirelessly to provide exceptional care regardless of the financial situation or ethnicity of our patients. Chapa-De’s mission is to advance the health and well-being of American Indians and low income individuals living in our communities by providing convenient access to high-quality, compassionate care. We believe that good health is a critical factor to vibrant communities and we are dedicated to doing our part. In addition to providing direct care, our health centers continue to engage in partnerships with our local communities to increase accessibility and availability of services to our patients. In my capacity as CEO of Chapa-De Indian Health, I have had the distinct pleasure of collaborating with many likeminded individuals and organizations in our community and I look forward to continuing our efforts to ensure a healthy future for Grass Valley and our surrounding communities.

Hi Kids, Remember me telling you that Jenn was taking me out to explore the area? Well we did more than explore_we popped into some of Jenn’s favorite stores_and I fell in love with EVERYTHING at Grande Wood Designs! Jenn bought some great things for the house, and I know that she’s looking at cabinet designs with Ms. Jessica Anderson thoughts for the new addition to the house. 100 Wonderful Way _ Today we had lunch with Mimi Simmons she’s a community real estate icon, and after lunch we went to some one of her open houses. Has me dreaming and pestering Dad to take a look! You know what I’m thinking! I’m enthralled with everything Grass Valley_the history, the downtown, shopping, and it’s so GREEN_wait til you see the Fairgrounds. Trees everywhere, and Brian said that whatever the season, it’s beautiful here. I believe that_their yard is glorious, and it’s a treat to sit on the patio and enjoy the day. We’re headed out to dinner_Mexican food at Maria’s_yum! XXXOOXX

liforn alley, Ca V s s a r G

Hey, did you just love the wedding reception photos? Brian’s partner has a huge family, and with all the kids there it sure made us miss you two! Today I went with Jenn to meet Eric Breuer, the architect that Suzanne and John Voter introduced them to at the wedding reception. Brian says they know everyone_having been here for almost 30 years. I picked up the Grass Valley Design guide and will bring it home to show you. Needless to say, I’ve already got one foot in this community. Dad’s thinking that we should come back after the new year and bring you with us. Maybe for the Car Show in April. Dad and I are leaving tomorrow morning. We’ll meet you at the airport, and glad that we’ll be able to unload the car before we pick you up_the back is loaded with Grass Valley goodies and two cases of Lucchesi’s Cab Franc_we joined their wine club! Make sure that you thank Aunt Fran for the stay, and we’re counting the hours ‘til your flight arrives! Looking forward to massive hugs, Love Mom & Dad 112

The Importance of Hiring a Professional 4 By Robin Galvan-Davies

H

aving spent more than 25 years as an interior design professional, I can report firsthand the challenge of unsnarling a botched project. Approximately 25 % of the referrals to my company were for project rescues. Who among us hasn’t heard horror stories of someone hiring a person offering a “great deal” for a “great price” and getting anything but a “great result?” Often the outcome is disastrous, and this story is not uncommon. It certainly makes a stronger case for the old adage: “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” When it comes to work around your home and property, if you are not an ardent and accomplished Do-It-Yourself-er, then hiring a licensed, credentialed professional is absolutely the way to go. Regardless of whether you need a painter, building contractor, interior designer, architect, new flooring, a roof, gutters, your land

114

Postcards from Grass Valley

surveyed, a well drilled, heating or air conditioning, the professional expertise in any of these fields comes with tremendous benefits. Project overviews, budget estimates, contracts, and having a professional overseeing the project, securing permits if needed, and handling inspections. The value of service provided by hiring a professional avoids costly mistakes, and the results—well, it might be the best money you’ve ever spend! The Chamber members whose advertisements you see in these pages are companies that have built their reputations by word of mouth referrals, been part of the business community for decades, and we’re honored to count them among our members. Rest assured, that the companies listed are recommended without hesitation. Whatever service you need, the membership directory is a great place to Find An Expert.

Landscape is a Living and Breathing Space 4

By Dan & Elizabeth Poston

T

he best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today. This Chinese Proverb rings true for the way Living Outdoors Landscapes looks at gardening and helping people with their spaces. Dan and Elizabeth believe that your landscape is not only your outdoor living area, but also a living and breathing space that needs to be nurtured as such. They believe in planting for maturity and not the instant impact of things to close and too big for their spaces. They love helping customers learn about their soil biology and what they can do to help their gardens thrive. They take care in teaching their customers how to prune that special Japanese Maple, or when to deadhead the perennials, or how to effectively manage a pest in the garden. Getting their start at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Dan and Elizabeth found each other in the Environmental Horticultural Sciences Program and both graduated with B.S. in Horticulture; Dan with a concentration on Turf Grass Management and Landscape Care, Elizabeth in Landscape Design. Moving back to Nevada County where Dan grew up was always a goal, and after some time in the Bay Area and Marin, they were able to move home in 2010 and open up their Design and Consultation business in downtown Grass Valley, servicing the great Nevada and Placer County areas. Living Outdoors Landscapes will help you with every step of your landscape development, beginning with design planning, guidance through the installation process, project management and post-installation maintenance tips. Every landscape is different in Nevada County and there is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to their services. Many 120

Postcards from Grass Valley

customers want to do their landscape projects themselves and getting Elizabeth and Dan out for input and suggestions can be a wonderful way to make sure you tackle your project thoughtfully and avoid mistakes. Aiding in plant recommendations is a common practice, the wildlife is constantly evolving in Nevada County and at Living Outdoors they take great care in staying current with what the deer are leaving alone in Lake Wildwood up to Nevada City so you and your wallet don’t have to find out the hard way. It has been a wonderful 7 years of helping people discover their ‘green thumb’ and the delight of watching plants thrive. They take great care in each one of their gardens and you will often find them checking in years after an install just to see how the garden is growing and providing tips for improvement. Dan and Elizabeth love what they do and helping people become inspired by their gardens, give them a call when you’re ready to get started ‘Living Outdoors’. www.LivingOutdoorsLandscapes.com
