These are exciting times living with boxes, a microwave and a coffee machine. We had been in our old house, that we really loved, for over 20 years.  It was really sad to go.  When we moved back to Modesto in 1996, we picked this house because it was near Lakewood School as we were moving back to Modesto to live a life to raise our kids, focus on community and to really focus on being a family.  We became part of the neighborhood and we will always be a Lakewood family and our girls have had the best experience of Lakewood, LaLoma, Modesto High and then UC Berkeley.  Madison (now working for Adobe) and Ryan have moved back to Modesto and they too have moved to the Lakewood neighborhood and so we continue to be Lakewood parents.  Modesto is really a collection of fantastic neighborhoods.  They are what you make it and our community really does band together and try to make the places we all live better.  We have now moved into the LaLoma Neighborhood and we have been welcomed with open arms and we could not be happier.  Everyone has been so nice, and we live on a street that actually has some traffic where people are walking by all the time and we have get-togethers in the park across the street and many neighbors where I can “borrow a glass of wine”.  We love it and the process of moving has made me love Modesto even more.  We so excited to live in the LaLoma Neighborhood, meet more friends and enjoy the perks of an easy walk or bike ride to downtown Modesto.  Life is full of new adventures.

People call me “Mr. Modesto” and that is so very nice. It is an honor to celebrate the good things happening and to be really involved in community events and issues.  I have found so many people that I meet that are also Mr., Mrs., Ms. or Mx. Modesto in their own way.  I meet people like this every day and that is why we work so hard to bring ModestoView to the community each month.  We need to know our good stories, meet the people you may not hear about all the time and champion the people that actually make and do things.  There are a lot of people that like to have a lot meetings and talk about doing things, but I love the people that make things happen. The artists, the musicians, the promoters, the planners, the builders, the electricians, the city and county employees that see the possibilities, not the obstacles.  We all are Modesto and I am so glad that you are reading this and telling your friends.  Did I ever mention that I LOVE October?   1st,

Halloween is a national holiday at our house. For years we have been haunting up our culde-sac and I hope to continue this here at our new house.  Can you say epic spiderweb tunnel?  In this issue, we tried to compile a lot of cool haunted, creepy and harvest things for you to do.   2nd, October to me has always been ROCKTOBER.  Live music is near and dear to my heart.  From my own band to the over 200 different bands and musicians in our community, live music is one of the keys to good living.  That is why Chris Ricci and I created the Modesto Area Music Awards way back in 2000.  Now 17 years later, some of nominees weren’t born when we started the MAMAs and we will celebrate from the historic State Theatre on Oct 11.  Live music is special, it makes a community vibrant, it attracts the creative people that make and do things.  See how this all connects?  That is why it is so important to eat local, live local, listen local and shop local.  Thank you to the fantastic businesses that advertise here in ModestoView, you are helping us keep our mission to be 100% positive, 100% local and 100% interesting each and every day.   Let’s make our local economy thrive, our music and culture vibrant and help people make Modesto all it can be.  Send me a note about what you like, don’t like and how we can make ModestoView better for you.  Thanks for being here.    Chris Murphy Publisher and Founder – ModestoView chrism@modestoview.com

You think you know someone and then you find out they are zombies!   The Moradian family really is a good looking upstanding Modesto family, but they were super good sports when we wanted to have them go full zombie for our October cover, which is one of our fave projects of the year. Micheal J Mangano worked his award winning magic and created this fantasy cover.  Mike, Kathy and their kids are all out of this world with the help of our friends at DayDreams and Nightmares on 7th St. (you need to get your Halloween costume there) and the fantastic make up skills of Amberly Ortiz and Amber Marie Tomson. Thank you so much to all of our friends here in Modesto that make it great to live here.

COMMUNITY What’s New in the Neighborhoods by Maryann Spikes La Loma Neighborhood Develops Native Plant Garden: An idea to transform a blighted area in the La Loma neighborhood has blossomed into a community native garden project. Several La Loma volunteers, led by Rhonda Allen, have already spent many hours preparing the land for use. The native plant garden, located at 1805 Encina Avenue, will include the promotion of water conservation by using drought-tolerant plants, and will increase habitat for pollinators.Many hands will be able to plant and maintain the garden as it grows, including on Love Modesto day (April 8, 2017 – project signups begin this fall).

City Council Members Jenny Kenoyer (District 5) and Douglas Ridenour (District 6) encouraged neighborhood attendance. Kathy Muñoz, Beyer-Sylvan at the Lakes chair, reported the meeting was “very informative. The police chief, detectives and officers shared the message that the recent shooting incidents involved neighbors whose disagreements had escalated to violence. This was not gang related and did not involve drugs. Both shooters have been placed in custody. These crimes were committed in the East Rumble road area.” Another neighbor on Nextdoor. com agreed, “I’m glad to know that the statistics show that all sorts of crimes are down from last year. I was also glad to hear that the PD is actively recruiting and training new officers. Hopefully, they can fill those vacancies soon!” Debra Wright added, “Appreciate the mayor being there.” Email questions to: BeyerSylvanLakesCommunity@gmail.com

ART Trick or Treat by Jim Christiansen The Trick is writing the column with the usual Art in Modesto event and show information, and getting in some plugs for my birthday month and shows I’ve got going. Café DEVA has a new art hanging system, and my art is first to hang from it, through this month.  Other artists are being added as I write the column, and they have new local music cd area on the wall between music icons.  My art in the Mistlin Gallery Autumn Art Festival members show, on the same wall as the People’s Choice Award, last to be announced, won by Chelsea America for her water color, “Your Wife Sucks” satiric view of domestic chores like vacuuming.  The CCAA Members Show at Mistlin will continue to October 24.  A couple of classes to note at Mistlin, are four-week session “Inspiring Women in Art” with Susan Rossman on Saturdays, starting October 8, and Patrick Barr’s “Cartooning for Kids” meeting Wednesday afternoons starting October 26.  Patrick has been hosting Art Classes over at Queen Bean recently, and very good with students. Queen Bean was the Site of the Modesto Artist Salon Group Show September 17, pretty well attended by group artists and visitors.  They’ll be back again, but their October gig is Harvest Festival in downtown Modesto October 15.  It is an all-day event, and while I am a group member, my contribution is one of the canopies.  I’m tied up doing my Birthday Open Studio over October 14, 15 and 16, before I’m retirement age on Monday.  My hours will be 1 pm to 5 pm, with the garage studio open, dining room gallery, and most of the art up for sale.  I have a lot, and this will help me get ready for the April county wide Open Studio.  This Open Studio a new version of my annual October adventure, so feel free to come by, talk, view, even possibly pose for art.  Merced Art Hop takes place Saturday October 15, about the time I close, so might see you there.  Come by Ralston’s Goat for Comedy Show after Art Walk to find the funny and party to cap the week. Art Walk map did add some new stops, and I got to open in September for Doubletree Hotel, with featured music guest Mattea Overstreet.  Downtown Tinkertank, Never

Boring Designs, and Tresetti’s also new to the map. www.modestoartwalk.com   Chartreuse Muse opened its new Clay Studio September 15.  Check out their new show with Don Hall and class schedule.  Carnegie Art Center Ends its run October 9 of the Yosemite Renaissance XXX1 show celebrating the Carnegie and National Park Service 100-year anniversary. Show to watch for, the annual Memorial Complementary Therapy Show at Misting Gallery opens October 25.   After that, the Home for the Holidays Show November 20, with the emphasis of the scary idea of Buy Art from Local Artists.   Which is another reason I’m doing an Open Studio at my house, as I’ve had good luck in that department.  So if you like my art, come see me October 14 to 16, at 537 Bodem Street, where I write the monthly Art View Column.

Hey Bartender!

Harvest Season Beers at The Market at La Comisaria

by Chris Murphy Photos by MJ Mangano

Tresetti’s Do Good Mule

by Christopher Mitchell and Brandilyn Brown

The Market at La Comisaria is THE best small market in town. And they have a craft beer section to put all others to shame. It brings exposure to the market as a whole, because sure as the day a craft beer lover is born, craft beer lovers find craft beer. No matter what brightly colored building it may be hiding in. We discovered the Market, and met with manager Patrick Chinn, so you would have the scoop! These days craft beer seems everywhere. We are truly in a craft beer craze. “Feedback from customers in the store I last worked at was that customers wanted craft beer. Good craft beer. And they also didn’t want to have to go to multiple stores to do all their grocery shopping. We solved that problem. We hope we are everyone’s one-stop grocer, especially as we expand.” says Patrick. “Beer is my passion. I want our beer selection to be exceptional. I hold it to my very high standards as a beer enthusiast.” Oh, it is exceptional! The section of craft beer is worth driving from Turlock or Manteca for. They have local Dust Bowl, quasi-local Mikkeler or ToolBox, and dozens upons dozens of beers from all over the world! We’re not knockin’ BevMo’s selection, we love BevMo, but for a prime example of craft beer, look no further than The Market. Light, dark, doesn’t matter. Ales, pilsners, hoppy IPAs, stouts, sours, you like it, they carry it. Try a new brand. Try a new flavor. They even carry ciders, meads and wines. So stop in, pick out a new drink to try, head to the deli for some delicious bacon wrapped asparagus or chipotle apple sausage (they have plenty of other yummies too), then make one last stop down the condiment isle to grab some Sierra Nevada Porter Mustard. Your taste buds will enjoy it all! MV: What is your favorite beer? PC: My go-to is an IPA. I also love sours, and imperial stouts. Ok, actually I like a lot of beer! I push the envelope

with distributors to get new, fresh, exciting beer here so we can all enjoy it. If you don’t ask, you might not get it! Always ask. The same goes for my customers. You want us to carry a particular brand? Let us know! MV: Why Modesto? PC: Modesto has a conscious unlike any other city I’ve lived in. Everyone wants to make it better. We hoped to spark 7th Street, make this street better. I think we’ve done that. Pour into your community and be the change you want to see. Make the difference yourself. (MV note: If every business adopts a street downtown, Downtown Modesto will be revitalized like we’ve never seen! Let’s do this!) MV: What can we look forward to here at The Market? PC: We are going to start tasting and selling! But while we wait for that, we hope some Modern Times coffee on nitro served via tap will hold you over. It’s good stuff. We also rotate beers often, for freshness and to always have something new. Come in for deals because when we rotate out, we discount the beer. Also, we sell beer by the kegs! We were specifically looking for some harvesty, Halloweeny beverages, and these are our picks for you! The Jolly Pumpkin’s Cucurbitophobia Ale (which means “fear of pumpkins”), which is a barrel aged ale brewed with blood orange zest and juice, black lava salt as well as a rainbow peppercorn blend. If you dislike pumpkin beer (we do!), but still want to try a seasonal blend, this is a good one to try. No pumpkin spice in this beer! The  Zombies Take Manhatten Mead by BNektor. It’s apple & cherry honey mead ages in rye whiskey barrels. A dried mead but packed with flavor! (BNektar has some other great seasonal flavors, such as Black Fang and Necromangocon.)

Tresetti’s is the downtown Modesto original.   They were

there before the revitalization and they have been there on 11th St, since 1994 making sure we have fantastic food and drink that is world class. Yes friends, that’s why they call it Tresetti’s World Café.    So let’s get right to this, they pour fantastic cocktails.  I remember sitting with the late Mitch Maisetti drinking French Martini’s after we both returned from New Orleans.  Now under the guidance of son Jordan Maisetti, this place is a true Modesto favorite and gets better each day.  Tresetti’s has linked up with our friends at DoGood Distillery and they have created a fantastic drink that you need to try ASAP.  Put this magazine down now and get going.  We stepped up to the bar and Angela Work created this amazing Mule, so good in fact, that it is named the “Good Mule”.  

1.5 oz of Modesto’s Do good 3 Mile Rum Fresh cut ginger Muddle limes Modesto’s Cock N bull ginger beer Finished on the rocks in a copper mug

After finishing this tasty treat, we asked Jordan, why Do Good for this drink?  He said “We here at Tresetti’s love Do Good Distillery, not only for their varieties of liquors and their excellent flavors but for the fact that they are a local company that tries to use local products, much like us here at Tresetti’s”.   Sounds like a great reason for a cocktail to us too.  Check it out at:

CHEF

Mmmm is for Minnie’s! by Dana Johnson Restaurants, no matter what city seem to come and go, but Minnie’s on Mc Henry in Modesto has been in business since 1954 according to owner, Stuart Mah! That is an astounding 62 years! According to Modesto View’s very own Chris Murphy it is the oldest continuingoperating restaurant in Modesto in the same location. Stuart told me Minnie’s actually was the very first house built on McHenry and it was originally on the corner. I love that Minnie’s was renovated into a restaurant, full bar, with a huge patio and a second bar! There is also a banquet room if you wanted to host a party. In one of the dining rooms is the original fireplace and mantle that adds more character and charm to this tiki-themed establishment! Now that you are inclined to come to Minnie’s to feel the history and the nostalgia, be sure to bring your appetite with you. The menu may leave you with some difficult decisions to make if you are like me, you’ll want to try it all! The late morning trip to Minnie’s started out with a “Jerk!” and Chris Murphy! LOL, no, no, no Chris is no jerk, but he was there to share my experience! The “Jerk” is Minnie’s signature slushy 21 & over only cocktail named by Pete Mah! Long time server there, Susana told me it is a secret recipe & they have great Mai Tai’s, too! Chris told me it is no secret that the straw is filled with 151 proof rum and warned me “Do not stir your Jerk!” The 1st sip was a mighty one! We sat down; no we didn’t fall down from the

“jerk”, to a wonderful array of Minnie’s best. I was told the potstickers are legendary! Bartender at Minnie’s for a congratulatory 25 years is Diane! She was excited to tell me why the potstickers are her fave; they grind their own pork, season it & each of these Chinese dumplings are made by hand in a crescent shape, next pan-fried brown on one side and sautéed in broth on the other! On the table is soy sauce, mild & spicy rice vinegar for dipping is the best way according to long-time server Susana, her fave, too! Go figure it is Chris & my fave, too! Soooo off the hook Dana~licious! Stuart said it is one of his fave’s but he also loves the handmade burger and the steak sandwich! I will try that next time; no doubt this carnivore is on it! The fried rice and the chow mein were fresh and quite tasty, too! You won’t find the divine orange

chicken we also sampled in the table menu, but it is on the daily special menu! *On Monday it is bar only, the kitchen is closed! Chris & I both enjoyed all the food, I enjoyed that Chris had to get to a Modesto Rotary meeting and he didn’t have time to eat more, so the leftovers all went home with me (sorry to Becky, Chris’s ever sweet wife!)! Minnie’s menu also boasts both Cantonese and Mandarin dishes, as well as children’s and American dinners! If you are a seafood lover, again you are at the right place! Fall is here and yes, you will find soups on the menu, too! It’s almost impossible to save tummy room for dessert, but can you really pass up banana fritters and coconut ice cream? Exactly!!! Modesto View signature question; Beatles or Stones? I asked Sherry, the night bartender and night manager, she reluctantly said Beatles, but admitted she was really tired as it was close to closing!!! I’m sure if I asked her in the AM she’d be like, “Stones, of course!” Minnie’s

NON-PROFIT

By Chris Murphy

Good sound makes a band. This is not only an engineering skill, it is an art, and we are so very lucky to have some really talented people in our community that are doing seriously professional sound.  Modesto Sound is a local treasure and has now recorded over 800 teen musicians, worked with 182 youth interns to learn job skills, and held hundreds of community radio shows and concerts. This is a professional and affordable way to make and produce music.   Please join fellow music fans for this amazing fundraiser at the Portal. Mark Oesau, once an intern at Modesto Sound, now has his own sound company and continues to give back to teens who once like himself wanted to learn more about audio technology. His reggae band A’ La Lune will be performing at this year’s event.  He also works

with Leonard Bowlin and they did an amazing job doing sound for Grandaddy’s first show in four years in Modesto a few months ago. This is so very cool as longtime Grandaddy producer Lucky Lew is one of the advisors at Modesto Sounds.  Professional training for professional careers.   Another performer will be Tristan Gianelli who attended several of Modesto Sound’s music camps. Joseph Rkyert’s opera trio, who just won The Grand Prize at the Valley’s Talent Project, recorded at the studio

UNPLUGGED Rock, Block, And One Smoking Carroll I saw an incredible documentary not long ago called ‘The Music Of Strangers.’ It chronicles the formation and evolution of the Silk Road Ensemble, a collective of virtuoso musicians from across the planet who banded together to promote cross-cultural creative collaboration. The project was founded by world-renowned cellist Yo Yo Ma almost 20 years ago, and has more than twenty regular members and over three times that many collaborators. The film follows the lives and struggles of five ensemble members, both on tour with the band and back in their home countries. It also highlights some wonderful but less widely known instruments played by certain members, such as the gaita (Galician bagpipes), pipa (Chinese lute), and kamancheh (Iranian fiddle.) It’s a musing on culture, philosophy and politics, and how they all interweave with music. One of the best cinematic experiences I’ve had all year. Imagine my surprise when I recognized one of the ensemble members’ names. Hardly a week before seeing the film, I had arranged for the providing of sound tech for a concert happening this month, which happens to feature none

by Aaron Rowan other than Silk Road cellist Mike Block. Yo-Yo Ma has called this multi-style cellist, composer, and educator “the ideal musician of the twentyfirst century.” He’ll be performing in a duo with Hanneke Cassel, a Scottish fiddle champion and one of the many Silk Road collaborators. Hanneke fuses influences from the Isle of Skye and Cape Breton Island with musical innovations from the hip Boston bluegrass/ Americana scene to create a uniquely American approach to Scottish music. The concert is a fundraiser for Patterson city councilman Dominic Farinha, and darned if I’m not going to move in with my good friend who lives there so I can give him my vote. It’s being held at the Hammon Senior Center in Patterson, on Wednesday 10/19 at 7 PM. Tickets are $35, and include wine and hors d’oeuvres. Tickets only available in advance – visit www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2579976. For more info, call 209-892-8147 or email Dominic4Council@ yahoo.com. Saturday 10/8, Music At The GMC hosts an evening with cowboy poet Kerry Grombacher

and folk singer/songwriter Leah Shoshanah. Kerry writes contemporary western songs set in the landscape that he’s worked and traveled in, from his home in New Orleans, to the desert Southwest, to the Northwest forests. His lyricism takes us on journeys to places we’ve never visited before. Leah’s original music is influenced by rock, folk, samba and jazz, taking on a life of its own and inspiring audiences to sit spellbound as well as laugh, cry, sing and dance. 7:30 PM at the Gottschalk Music Center recital hall, 1502 E St. $15 general/free for kids 12 and younger. Seating is very limited, so call 209-543-5306 to secure a spot. Sunday 10/16, the Modesto Community Concert Association presents Gregg Young & The 2nd Street Band,  one of the L.A. music scene’s most in-demand groups, fusing rock, disco

& jazz. Gregg has performed alongside Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Steve Miller, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Linda Ronstadt and many others. The Second Street Band is a pool of approximately 40 world-class musicians and vocalists. 3 PM at the Gallo Center. More info at www. modestocca.org.

INTER

SCARY ROCTOBER! by Chris Murphy

Modesto is special because of the many innovative and creative people in our community. There are those that do and those that talk about doing and ModestoView loves the people that DO things, make things happen, and create things.  Since this is October and we love Halloween, we are going to celebrate this month as much as we can and since this is ROCKtober as well, we will be celebrating the music in our community at the MAMA Awards and also with the California Women’s Music Festival.  We would like you to meet two amazing people that make this season special, Dana Walters of DayDreams and Nightmares and Victoria Boyington, of the California Women’s Music Festival. Daydreams and Nightmares on 7th St is mission control for every dress up event and is the epicenter of all things paranormal in our community. We can always count on them to support our crazy cover and theme ideas and they can make any event you can think of special. Plus they give back to our community with the Every 15 Minutes program and so much more.  Plus, DayDreams is located where a crematorium used to be.  Let’s meet Dana.     ModestoView: What excites you most about this time of the year? Dana Walters: This time of year I get excited watching the people of Modesto come into my shop excited about the parties they are having & how they want to look the best at their parties with costumes & make-up.   MV: You participate in the supernatural all year long, what are some of the things that give you chills in the night? DW: Hearing footsteps behind you & no one is there. I sneezed one time at the shop & someone said “bless you” ! I was alone at the time. When I first bought the building (funeral home) I was there by myself & felt like someone was in the shop with me , so I took out my camera took two pictures 1st pic looked normal , the second one had a weird light showing & you can see a man standing in the doorway! That scared me & I left quickly.   MV: What are some of the craziest costumes you have done for people? DW: One of the craziest costumes we did was for Anderson’s towing company! They came to us & wanted a tow truck costume! We made it for them! It matched their trucks they use everyday!  We also made a toothbrush for a local dentist.

Dana Walters (l) and Milan Motroni

MV: Since you are located in a former crematorium, does that make this kind of work extra special? DW: I feel being in an old funeral & crematorium adds to my shop, there is history & stories here. Just like with each & every costume we have. For example I have some of my mother’s old 1950’s authentic clothing. In perfect shape & ready for rentals. My mother used to always sing on the radio with her father & brother who went on to play at the Grand Ole Opry.   MV: What is something you want everyone to know about you and DayDreams and Nightmares? DW: Not only are we a costume & make up store but we do far more through out the year. We work with the police dept. helping doing mock shooting drills. We also do the make up at a lot of the high schools for the Every 15 Minutes program. So when we are helping a customer we can tell you by experience what works & what doesn’t! We don’t just sell the products, we use and create them.   We are also active in Stanislaus county foster care program. We volunteer doing make up for the county Foster kids at the annual backpack parties. We use costumes & come to the annual Christmas Parties & the community donates at our shop during Christmas for the kids with no permanent homes!  We donate to helping Enoch’s High School Forensics & Bio Tech Classes, by doing zombie lab mishaps for educating kids of Stanislaus County.  Daydreams and Nightmares Day Dreams and Nightmares 1219 N 7th St.  209-575-0023

Women’s

Music Fest

5 question with Victoria Boyington I was raised in a family of women and my wife Rebecca is a champion of raising strong girls and we celebrate their accomplishments and their possibilities. It is in this vein that we celebrate the amazing women in music and want to encourage people in our community to support the California Women’s Music Festival and Workshops on October 22 at the Gallo Center. We caught up with event chairperson Victoria Boyington; who not only is the chair, she is a mother if eight, is in multiple bands and is a teacher; for some additional insight on this event.    ModestoView:  Why a women’s music festival? Victoria Boyington: This event is all about supporting women in music and all areas the music industry. California Women’s Music Festival gives women in this area a chance to gain skills necessary to host a larger scale event. This year we have reached out to Central Valley High School and UOP music, photography and film students expanding the opportunities for mentoring young women. Central Valley High School’s Kari Copley will be bringing in young women interested in film and photography giving our youth a chance to utilize their skills in a live setting. This event is all about creating opportunities for women.   MV: What do can people expect from this event? VB: People can expect an excellent show with amazing women in music. We have Grammy Award Winning Songwriter Paula Cole, Blues Guitarist Samantha Fish, Dilana from RockStar Supernova, an all female Zeppelin band and an amazing bluegrass touring band, Urban Pio-

neers, not to mention all the talented daytime performers coming to us from Los Angeles, Napa, Tennessee, and from The Central Valley. Music lovers will enjoy a variety of female headliners at a time when large festivals are not billing women as headliners. We also have presentations by Without Permission, a local anti-human trafficking organization  and Alana Scott of WELL to help build awareness about women’s issues. Expect a day filled with great music and education.   MV: Is there an age where it is toll late to get involved? VB: There is no age limit. This year we go back to our roots and encourage women of all ages to come support women in music, business, education and the fine arts. Our organization is dedicated to helping women across the life span. This is an event where you can bring your daughters, mothers, brothers, and the whole family to enjoy women musicians.   MV: What can you learn? VB: You will learn about the anti-trafficking organization Without Permission and their efforts to help free women from trafficking in our community. I think people would be amazed at what is going on throughout the central valley. It’s a national problem that begins with education at the micro level, which starts here at home. We will also have information about Sacramento Girls Rock Camp and Soundgirls. org.   MV: What are you most excited about for the California Women’s Music Festival? VB:  I am excited about the venue and the outstanding job they have done so far. We are lucky to have such a beautiful venue in town. We are also excited about all of the exceptionally talented women coming to Modesto this fall. This year’s festival is going to be amazing. I hope people take advantage of the opportunity our town has to host such a landmark festival. This is California Women’s Music Festival and it is happening here.

METAL by Eve Oberlander This is a transitional month for Metal View. Long time MetalView writer Mike Vanek has moved to Tennessee. We would like to welcome Eve Oberlander to the ModestoViewCrew. Her first full article will be available online at www.modestoview.com Here is an excerpt of her column and we are looking for many more MetalViews. Raised here in Central Cali, I’m proud to call Modesto home and the place where I was introduced to local metal. Being a part of local metal is a huge chunk of my life. I am a fan and supporter. I have a blast with the bands, the friends that go along with it and the entertainment it brings to our local and surrounding venues. I enjoy every minute of it. Knowing each band personally I got to talking and found out some things that we should all look for real soon. Modesto’s most hated Nothing But Losers is playing the Whiskey A Go Go in L.A on October 30th with Dope, Flaw and Motogrator.

FFA FFA Is Much More by Josephine Henderson When most people think of FFA, they think

WINE TASTING TICKETS AVAILABLE AT

of cows and plows, corn and tractors. But FFA is much more than that. When I think of FFA, I think of helping others, reaching out to my community, and helping the world become a better place, one helping hand at a time. At Central Catholic High School, FFA has become one of the most popular organizations offered. Although we do love showing at the fair and talking about the latest ag fad, we also value the importance of community outreach. One volunteer service the president of our FFA officer team, David Philips, just started is his LTS, or Living to Serve. David’s plan is centered on the idea of increasing access to education in our area. He calls it “Connections and Classroom Success.” He tries to reach out to students in the Modesto area, going to a different school every month. His most recent project included going to St. Stanislaus school and teaching kindergarteners and third graders about pigs! Another way Central Catholic FFA helps out in the community is through our monthly com-

Celebrate the High Holidays with

(L to R) Nadia Estacio, Allison Jensen, David Philips, Sarah Truxton, Ambria Schneringer, Josephine Henderson munity service projects. This October we are planning on putting on an event called Socktober. The whole month, we will be collecting socks from FFA members and CCHS students, and then donating them to Gospel Mission and Haven Women’s Center in Modesto. Our FFA teachers also like to get kids involved in volunteering locally. This year, we have plans to plant a garden at St. Stanislaus. By doing so , we will be helping kids become more involved in agriculture along with helping them explore potential careers in ag. As you can see, the FFA Organization does get a kick out of cowboy boots and winning local speaking competitions, but we also love to serve our wonderful city Modesto!

MAMA MAMA Time by Middagh Goodwin

Voting ends on October 9th at midnight! Winners will be announced on the 11th at the “Black Tie” Awards show at the State Theatre. Don’t let your support for all your favorite bands and venues end there. Keep going out & supporting local businesses that allow live entertainment, buy the bands T-Shirts and CD’s, and most importantly bring your friends out to see and support. Grow the audience at each and every event in Modesto. The end goal of the MAMAs is not to just have a party and give out trophies. It is to help create an active and vibrant music and arts community. We are working on expanding our efforts to do more all year round but we need the performer’s help to do this. You have the fun job, just keep performing and sharing the good times. Make sure you share them with us so we can help spread the word! Invite the MAMA

board to your facebook events and send your gigs to events@modestoview.com. What can you do to help beyond just going to a show? Are you a writer or photographer? You can write a review of a band, event or venue, or take pictures of a show and submit them to the ModestoView.  Who knows; in time you might become a regular writer for the View.  We have lost the midsize venues (FatCat, Heros) over the last few years and as an arts community, we have felt that loss. On the flip side, we are seeing more smaller businesses becoming more open to live entertainment and we want to see more of that. If you own a Bar, Resturant or Cafe please consider bringing in live music, comedy, and displaying local artist. It does not only enrich our lives it enriches the community.  Let us all create and build a better more vibrant arts scene and give a reason to keep the next generation here in Modesto, and an incentive for others to move and build here. Let us make Modesto rule!

SONGWRITER

FALLing into Music by Patty Castillo Davis       

Autumn is the crowning glory of the year and the prelude to all things ghoulish and sacred at the same time. With mostly cooperative weather and limitless choices, you can partake in every type of event where music is the focus. I would be remiss if I did not mention the MAMAs. On October 11 at the historic State Theater, nominees from across the 209 in multi-genres of music will be recognized. If you did not nominate your favorites or vote, please-no dissent. Keep playing your heart out and booking those shows. Create a strong, unrelenting online presence, be high profile. Put forth the best product you can and when the summons comes around, “Who do you think should be nominated for a MAMA?”, speak your mind during this time. Later is too late. Please read my previous piece online about the 2016 Unplugged/Songwriter nominees and visit pattycastillodavis.com for my picks in each category.

Now in its fourth year, the Yosemite Songwriting Retreat, October 7-10 is an intensive weekend of instruction with a variety of accomplished songwriters. This year’s instructors include Grammy winning Americana artist Laurie Lewis, fierce slide guitar player and poet David Jacobs-Strain and soulful and heartfelt songsmith Keith Greeninger. In addition to classes and workshops, there will be opportunities to perform and record your songs and sign up for mentor sessions and get individual attention. Anyone 18 years and older can participate. Previous songwriting is welcome but not necessary. For more information visit www. yosemitesongwriting.com. I would like to call on all Unplugged/Songwriter talent in the area to please contact me at pattycastillodavis.com if you are interested in bringing your music to some fine venues in the 209, promote your product and reach a larger audience. Send your existing event dates for publishing on or before October 16. As usual, keep making original music, team write with another, join the 52 Week Club, test your art at an open mic but by all means create.

BLUES October Ready by Earl Matthews Hello everyone, fall is here and I for one am ready! October is my favorite month because it’s my birthday, and this year I am turning 40. It’s going to be extra special for sure. Right out the gate we have two fun options on October 1st: You can check out Rob Hill band at the 50’s Roadhouse in Knight’s Ferry. It’s a fun place and you can always head up a little early and watch the sunset first. Another great option is up at Black Oak Casino AC Miles the talented Blues Rock guitar monster from Fresno is playing all night. Either way you can’t lose. Then we jump ahead to the 8th and Rob Hill band will be over at P.Wexfords, no cover, great food and a huge selection of draft beer. Also on the 8th is the 3rd annual DB Project fundraiser for the Center For Human Services, specifically for the 2 youth homeless shelters they run called Pathways and Hutton House. I will be performing this year with Big Earl and the Cryin’ Shame and for the first time ever we will have a 3 piece horn section. I couldn’t be more excited folks. This is my 40th Birthday show and its for a great cause, I really hope you

ZEN can all make it out. On Oct 15th is the “Let There Be Music Festival” in Patterson. This event is a benefit for Patterson City School’s music departments. They are going all out and hired some great performers from all over the area and Comedian Anthony K is the host. There is something for everyone on the line up Blame Sally, Big Earl and the Cryin’ Shame, Morgan Dorr, SRP, Superchargers, Plan Of Action, Los Cadetes De Linares, Banda Nueva Era. More than worth the $10 advanced ticket price. On the 21st in Stockton you can check out Royce Family BBQ Hot Rod Night with Jeramy Norris and the Dangerous Mood. Jeramy and the boys know how to get down and make everybody get up and dance. Also on the 21st Terrie Londee and the B-4 Dawn Band will be out at Vintage Lounge in Turlock. They play a mix of Soul, Funk and R&B that is sure to get you in the groove. On the 22nd at the Gallo Center is the Northern California Women’s Music Festival. This year features 11 acts, headliners include Zapparella, Dilana, Samantha Fish and Paula Cole. Big Earl and the Cryin’ Shame will be there as well. On the 27th at the Gallo Center Mr Richard Thompson and the Blind Boys Of Alabama will be making joyful noise, this is one you don’t want to miss. I hope to see you all out at a show this October. Be good humans, ya’ll.

Detachment by Mary Layton Recently I had a small car accident. For a couple of days I obsessed about it. Because I was continually thinking about I was making myself irritable and tired. I found that when I practiced T’ai Chi or played music my mind became quiet and detached itself from the incident leaving me feel rejuvenated. Since then the idea of detachment is growing on me. Instead of letting emotions govern life a more objective experience may be needed,  letting things come and go as they happen.  Detachment may mean distancing oneself emotionally  from whatever is troublesome, including people. Or turning away from the media and the phones. Or living the life of a hermit who tries to get away from it all. How do you find detachment? There are deep and spiritual  reasons to learn about detachment.  Detachment is part of a mindfulness practice and found in many spiritual teachings. In Buddhism attachment is viewed as a precursor to suffering. Wether you love and care about something or if you hate and despise it,  attachment will not allow you

to move on. It’s like a chain binding you. You can learn detachment through meditation. Detachment is a choice :  It may mean to detach from old reactions and old fears that create expectations,  judgements and conflict. Detaching from sadness and frustration, longing and disappointment could turn a person’s life around. Underneath it all lies a trust that there is a Higher Power that will take care of things. Detachment is a shift in attitude and involves a conscious effort to concentrate on taking really good care of oneself.  When  the focus is kept on oneself as opposed to on other people we can be free from resentments. Serenity grows and we may finally, disentangled, become more alert and watchful of all that is going on in our own mind. And with even greater ability to be mindful we eventually are able to take it a step further and detach from ourselves. In order to know to understand others we need to be able to step aside from our own prejudices  and opinions.   For more info go to taichi4modesto.com, or call (209)572-4572

FIT A,B, or C Running Club by Efren Martinez

With more than a few choices of running clubs out there it can be a bit difficult to chose the right fit if your a runner. There is (A) The ShadowChase running club which is not only the biggest running club, but also the most competitive club out there with some of the fastest runners in our area as members. The ShadowChasers also have timing services and produce a great deal of their own races. Then you have (B) The Dusty Bottoms Trail runners. If you like to run, love beer and care less about fartlicks and speed training, this running club is defiantly for you. The Dusty Bottom trail runners are a down to earth and energetic group of runners. They don't do any kind of timing services for races nor do they produce them. Instead they sport weekly fun runs that always end up with a few social beers in both hands. As you can imagine they definitely have a great deal of fun with their weekly runs that always include laughter and comradely. If large clubs and or drinking beer after your

run isn't for you, may I suggest you check out option (C), The ABC Fitness running club. With about 454 facebook likes they are quickly moving to be the new style when it comes to running clubs. The club embraces each other for their common love of the sport, running. Just recently I spoke with my friend, Jennifer Neal, to give me the scoop on what the club is all about. Jennifer Neal, "We average a very small group of about 4-5 people on our weekly runs. We like to also refer to our group as the Sunrise Run Club. We run at 5 am every Tuesday and Thursday, so a majority of the time we see the sunrise. Most of the runners start off just wanting to run local 5Ks. After they see their potential, they go on a do 10Ks, half marathons and marathons. We even tackled the Ragar Trail Run in Lake Tahoe this year. We love to push our comfort zone, try new running events and have a good time." Awesome! As your fitness editor, this sounds like it could be a nice fit for some, it brings and co-insights a little from both of the above (A&B) running clubs.  No matter your

preference of club, it is great to get the support and involvement of others. Perhaps it's just me, but what got my attention of The ABC Fitness running club was the one word in it's club name, "Fitness."

OCTOBER 2016

so naturally these fall months have me feeling wonderful. After a long, hectic summer, it feels so great to be back into the swing of things. With influence from friends and family, I have always had a strong will to try new things that interest me. Even having this fortunate trait, it was still a challenge for me to expand my horizons in high school. Finally in the midst of my Junior year, I really feel like I’ve figured myself out; what I like to do and who with. It doesn’t take a lot to be content with your life and you can make transitions every day, at any age to combat daily disputes. Through trial and error, I have learned that having a daily dance party is vital to my high spirits each day. Whether it’s in the car on your way to work or when you get home from school, I highly reccomend this form of stress relief. If you prefer having a structured schedule, perhaps sign up for a weekly Zumba, Yoga, or Art class. At any age, stretching yourself socially and intellectually is said to help you greater appreciate each day! If you check out the “Modesto View Event Calendar” online, there are tons of new cool things to do. Some things that caught my eye were the “Queen Bean Open Mic Sundays” and “Guess That Tune Tuesdays” at the Twisted

Pig! I’ve been to both of these events and it’s an awesome experience seeing so many people who are interested in the same music as me. Of course we cannot deny that the most exciting part of this month is not only the much-needed temperature drop, but also the abundance of Halloween festivities! For families looking for a friendly day-outing, Dell’Osso Farms has always been a classic. Between the corn maze, pumpkin blasters, ziplines, pumpkin patch, food court and of course the haunted house, there is something to entertain everyone. For the adrenaline-seeking Halloween lovers, I highly recommend checking out the “California Haunted Houses” website. An extremely hyped Modesto attraction is called “Deathworkz”, which is advertised as an intense horror walkthrough/interactive show with actors and haunting sets. The coolest thing about this program is that it is completely non-profit and created for and by people who love Halloween! Check out their website www.deathworkz.com to see all of their varied themes for each night. I’m so amped for October, Modesto is a great place to be this time of the year!! One of my top Autumn songs is called “Eyes” by Rogue Wave and another is “Cracklin’ Rosie” by Neil Diamond. I hope you have a dancy, spooky, October! Much Love!

BARGAIN Haunting Change of Season It’s the first week of Fall and the weather feels like it. There’s an Autumn chill in the air this evening as the sun dips below the horizon.

Never fear Ms. M believes she’s always in the place at the right time. Tonight it’s to catch the rising moon that casts an eerie tinge of green across the land. October won’t disappoint with opportunities presenting themselves at the right time & price. A little pride in one’s community goes a long way.
