EDITORIAL

Black market dangers hit home Butte County has become accustomed to major media

outlets reporting on events in our backyard. That’s largely due to the Camp Fire. But over the weekend, various news agencies from around the nation, including CNN and Rolling Stone, covered what public-safety officials are referring to as a “mass-casualty event” involving illicit drugs. That mass overdose at a Chico home on Saturday (Jan. 12) ended the life of one man. The culprit: likely fentanyl, a synthetic opioid. Local public-safety personnel administered Naloxone (also called Narcan) to several others at the scene—at least a dozen people present were hospitalized. Fentanyl originally was developed as a pain reliever for cancer patients in advanced cases of the disease. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, reports that the highly addictive drug is 50 to 100 times stronger than morphine. Its illicit form has become an increasingly popular recreational drug in recent years, with deadly results. If the name of the narcotic rings a bell, it’s probably because the accidental overdose deaths of several famous people—including Prince and Tom Petty in 2016 and 2017, respectively—have been linked to the drug. More recently, rapper Mac Miller died from a combination of cocaine and fentanyl, according to toxicology reports. The mass overdose in Chico occurred at a gathering

at a home in a suburban neighborhood. We suspect the attendees thought they were using cocaine or perhaps another party drug. That’s what happened a week earlier in Fresno: Three men thought they were snorting cocaine, but it turned out to be the potent opioid. One of them died. That’s the thing about black market drugs—you never know what you’re going to get. Tuesday (Jan. 15), Butte County Public Health sent out a press release warning residents of the possibility that a “high-potency batch of illegal drugs, possibly laced with another substance, may be in circulation.” It noted that Naloxone—the aforementioned drug used to reverse the toxic effects of opioid overdose—can be acquired at a pharmacy without a prescription. Treatment for opioid addiction is available locally, added the agency (see more at buttecounty.net/opioids). The health department’s warning and advice comes a day after yet another report of multiple overdoses, this one involving three people at an Oroville casino. No fatalities were reported in that instance, and heroin is suspected. However, the Butte County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the case, including whether it has any connection to the one in Chico. Either way, these reports likely hit close to home for many in our community. We urge everyone to heed the warnings. Ω

GUEST COMMENT

no shirt off his back several of his essays. I liked him less, however, after Ireading an interview he did with Money magazine last ’m not David Sedaris’ biggest fan, but I’ve enjoyed

year, bragging about how much money he makes and how much he enjoys spending it rather lavishly. He talked about splurging on shirts that cost a good deal more than a minimum-wage earner makes in a 40-hour work week. Per shirt. He went on to say: “I’m rich. And I absolutely love being rich.” Later in the interview, he talked about having bought a very expensive pair of black sequined by Jaime O’Neill culottes he gave away to someone who “can’t possibly afford them The author is and would wear them all the time.” a retired local community college He further added, “When I do a instructor. live show ...

did those culottes cost me? Twenty seconds on stage?” Yeah, it’s his money to spend as he wishes, but how he chose to spend that easy money says a lot about his values. And yeah, I’m sure he’s a very nice man. A decade ago, in Paris, I passed a store with a shirt bearing a price tag of nearly $2,000, about what I’ve spent on all the shirts I’ve ever owned since I began buying my own clothes nearly 60 years ago. Many of those shirts looked nice on me in ways that spending an additional $1,980 apiece wouldn’t have improved. David Sedaris, like so many of the undertaxed and overpaid, is faced with the challenge of figuring out clever ways to spend all the money he is paid in a nation where the gulf between rich and poor widens daily. Maybe, instead of shirts and culottes, he might have donated what he earned in a few seconds onstage at Laxson Auditorium earlier this week to help reduce the suffering still being endured by victims of the fire and floods that devastated this area. It wouldn’t exactly be the shirt off his back, would it now? Ω

SECOND & FLUME by Melissa Daugherty m e l i s s a d @ n e w s r e v i e w. c o m

#redCrossFailure Red Cross officials have told this newspaper’s reporters multiple times that the organization’s efforts to operate shelter services for Camp Fire evacuees would continue until there is no longer a need. Well, apologies for the coarse language, but it appears as though that was bullshit. We’re told now, a little more than two months after California’s deadliest and most destructive fire, that the Red Cross is planning to close up shop at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds at the end of this month. No, seriously. The national organization that, according to its vision statement, “is always there in times of need,” is preparing to discontinue this critical relief effort (see Meredith J. Cooper’s report on page 8). That’s quite the divergence from its mission of “alleviat[ing] human suffering in the face of emergencies.” It’s not overly dramatic to say that this scenario has the makings of yet another local catastrophe. Here’s the thing: More than 600 people are living at the fairgrounds, either inside buildings or in RVs and cars out in the parking lot. Considering the accommodations aren’t exactly the most comfortable, nor do they offer much in the way of privacy, we’re fairly certain people are there because they have nowhere else to go. The folks at the Red Cross serve these people daily, so they know this to be the case. They’ve also attended meetings at which local service providers have made it clear that their organizations aren’t equipped to house those who will be turned out at the end of this month. Indeed, those groups are scrambling to figure out what to do about our region’s existing population of unsheltered citizens. Point is, there is no safety net for the hundreds of additional people who may end up on the streets in the middle of winter. And two weeks’ notice isn’t much time to establish one. My only conclusion: Criticism of the Red Cross over the years is warranted. But don’t take my word for it. One only has to type “Red Cross failure” into an internet search to find reports by ProPublica, The New York Times, NPR and other outlets on the nonprofit’s botched responses to numerous natural disasters. Take, for example, stories about how a school superintendent in Texas was forced to open a shelter following Hurricane Harvey when the Red Cross was practically a no-show until four days after the storm two years ago. Or check out the congressional report alleging that one-quarter of the donations taken in following the devastating earthquake in Haiti nine years ago was spent on overhead costs. Sadly, though the Red Cross and its volunteers have done good work over the past couple of months in Butte County, this decision means that the Camp Fire response will end up as yet another black eye for the organization. Of course, it doesn’t have to be that way. The Red Cross could follow through on its word by continuing to shelter and feed folks in need until an alternative option is viable. In the meantime, I’d urge readers to make some noise on Twitter. #RedCrossFailure has a nice ring to it. Moreover, if you’re thinking about opening your wallet to nonprofits providing aid, send donations to local groups that are in it for the long haul.

Hear, hear  Re “Insult to injury in Oroville” (Guest comment, by Jenny Miller, Jan. 10): I totally agree with this article. There was a meeting slammed together on Dec. 27 to have people come together to discuss using the Koppers site for “sorting debris.” I would like to see another meeting that is well-advertised, so I can attend and air my feelings. It is not realistic to have a meeting with little notification to the general public and expect to have people attend, especially during the holidays. Four hundred trucks a day is a bit much, and I don’t like the idea of Oroville being used as a dump. We have a proud community of people who work hard every day to [make sure Oroville is not viewed as a dump]. Now you want to turn it into one with all this debris-sorting, and on top of it, using a known hazardous waste site that could potentially stir up

contaminants. Dump it in Paradise and clean and sort it there. It would save millions of dollars in transportation costs and handling of the material. They would get it done a lot faster than hauling it 28 miles to another town for a year and a half and 400 trucks a day rolling down the highway tearing up the roads. Zane Libert Palermo

LaMalfa’s weak retort Re “Whom to watch” (Cover story, by CN&R staff, Jan. 3): I enjoyed your article on people to watch in 2019. However, the most important person to watch (keep track of) is Rep. Doug LaMalfa to see if he continues as a sycophant to a constituency of one (President Sexual Predator) or will begin to represent the thousands in his district who voted for him (or didn’t). Already his response to Trump’s

threat to cut federal fire funds for California was a weak “not helpful.” As a self-described climate crisis denier (akin to a flat-earth proponent), unless he changes his position, LaMalfa’s name will surely be attached to the predicted fire disasters of 2019. The first one will be LaMalfa Fire #4. Something to watch for! Beau Grosscup Cohasset

Medicare for All, please Re “Coverage denied” (Healthlines, by Chad Terhune, Jan. 10): It is utterly outrageous that the state of California uses private insurance and managed-care corporations to determine what care lowincome people on Medi-Cal need, and going against what doctors order for their patients.

LETTERS c o n t i n u e d f r o m pa g e 5 when it comes to people’s health care, as this is a matter of life and death for many people! Regarding saving money, one thing that Medi-Cal could do is strongly encourage doctors to talk with their patients about proper diet and exercise. MediCal could also have qualified people to encourage doctors not to prescribe so many drugs that do harm to people and often result in more sickness and even death. I know something about that, because a good friend of mine is no longer with us due to this problem. Doctors need to be encouraged to educate themselves about good alternative supplements to recommend to their patients whenever possible, instead of medicines. We need improved Medicare for all, anyway, that encourages alternative care while discouraging so many drugs. Medi-Cal is an excellent way to start on this. Walter Ballin Chico

‘Liberal cesspool’ California has become a liberal cesspool, to the 10th degree. Gavin Newsom is already putting common sense aside, and offering health care to all, even illegal aliens. I’d ask Gavin why he thinks that is a sustainable situation for businesses and taxpayers in this state? Do you think your definition of morality should shoulder all Californians and U.S. citizens with more taxes and less for our families? Clowns like Newsom are the reason why Democrats won’t see the White House in 2020. Turning the once Golden State into the “Gimme” state is unconscionable, and shouldn’t be tolerated. Democrats and their socialist, Marxist open-border view of the world is dangerous and is robbing the hard-working citizens of this country. Trump is doing what common sense demands. Democrats are in opposition, not because they have a better plan, but because they resist a leader who puts power and security back in the hands of the people. Socialism and welfare never in history has succeeded; eventually you run out of everyone else’s money. Democrats need to pull their collective heads out of the sand and watch how a real

president leads. Just ask Macron in France how his liberal agenda is working. You keep this up, Newsom, and the yellow vests will be visiting your neighborhood. Brad Pankratz Orland

Weekly Trump talk This morning, many of us awoke in our homes, RVs or shelters to a tweet from our tiny-handed, poor-spelling, vulgarian-inchief—again, blaming California for its forest fires. Or, as he put it, “forrest” fires. “Billions of dollars are sent to the State of California for Forrest fires that, with proper Forrest Management, would never happen. Unless they get their act together, which is unlikely, I have ordered FEMA to send no more money. It is a disgraceful situation in lives & money!” This tweet came only hours after he duped the networks into airing his abhorrent Oval Office “address,” which was in effect his first campaign speech of the 2020 campaign. As the walls close in on this steaming pile of excrement, and the crime syndicate around him, he is becoming increasingly unhinged. His rhetoric, ignorance, corruption and incompetence place our country in jeopardy. While the rest of our allies worldwide are wondering, WTF is going on in the once proud USA?, we as citizens need to support any efforts to remove this guy before it is too late. Attention legislators, Google “congressional oversight re: U.S. Constitution” and do your jobs! Dave Schwartz Chico

The U.S. pullout of Syria is not about the troops, it’s about President Trump building political capital with Russia. Through its alliance with Syria, Russia has maintained its influence in the Middle East. This furthers Russia’s goal of re-establishing itself as a global player when it had been concluded that the glory days of the Soviet Union were over. Additionally, the departure of American troops further tightens President Bashar al-Assad’s once-tenuous grip on his ravaged country. Iran has sent thousands of Shiites to Syria to help keep Assad in power. It also has a land bridge

through Syria to send weapons to Hezbollah, a steadfast enemy of Israel. The Kurds, a U.S. ally in our war against the Islamic State, are at great risk. Turkey has vowed to launch a new offensive against the YPG, a Kurdish militia that the U.S. equips to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan calls the YPG a terrorist group, and has vowed to crush them. He got the green light back in December, during his call with Trump prior to the announced pullout. Once again, autocrat-wannabe Fat Donnie’s reckless behavior exposes his oblivious disregard for human life. Status quo. Roger S. Beadle Chico

I have always tried to think of our country as free—freedom of speech, press and peaceful assembly. To me, this is what makes America great. Shutting down the government and its services, denying federal employees pay for a day’s work, and disenfranchising the House/Senate are not part of what I see as a great America. In fact, it makes me think the opposite. I want to leave this country in fear. If our own citizens are to be put in peril due to irresponsible bullying by our own president, it is a sad day, indeed. President Trump seems to care more about illegal immigration and a wall than his own people. When he says, “You’ll see,” I say, “I do see” a president who is making grave judgment errors that are hurting innocent Americans. Can you not put your vote forward toward stopping this travesty? If a wall is truly what we need, can it not be considered outside of a shutdown? It sounds like Mr. Trump is so scared that he won’t be able to get his wall any other way; that he is disregarding reason and imperiling his own “American citizens,” those he was sworn to support.

NEWSLINES DOWNSTROKE CANNABIS OUT IN OROVILLE

Reflecting changes from the November election, the Oroville City Council rescinded month-old ordinances legalizing commercial cannabis Tuesday night (Jan. 15). As reported in the CN&R (“Pot passes in O-town,” Downstroke, Dec. 6), the previous council majority approved zoning and business regulations for cannabis delivery, retail sales and processing. Tuesday’s action prohibits “all commercial cannabis activities” in the city. The vote was 4-3, with Linda Draper, Janet Goodson and Art Hatley—holdover supporters of the December ordinances—dissenting.

PG&E FILING FOR BANKRUPTCY

Facing at least $7 billion in Camp Fire claims, PG&E announced Monday (Jan. 14) its intention to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Under state law, it can petition the court after a 15-day notice period, ending on Jan. 29. PG&E, an investor-owned utility, said in a news release that it “remains committed” to continuing electric and natural gas service, and to “make investments in system safety.” Chapter 11, a reorganization process, will allow “expeditious resolution of potential liabilities” from Northern California fires in 2017 (i.e., Santa Rosa) and 2018 (i.e., Butte County). The news release said PG&E is negotiating $5.5 billion in financing to fund ongoing operations.

Steve Nettleton—the businessman, philanthropist and local sports team owner for whom Chico State’s baseball stadium is named—died last Friday (Jan. 11) from complications of Parkinson’s disease. He was 80. A native Iowan, Nettleton (pictured) owned a chain of Food 4 Less grocery stores and invested in both incarnations of the Chico Heat baseball team. He served on the board of Enloe Medical Center, where the maternity ward is named to recognize him and his widow, Kathy. The Nettletons also endowed the Boys & Girls Clubs of the North Valley, which named their Chico gym in his honor. Chico State awarded him an honorary doctorate for his community service. As of the CN&R’s deadline, there were no plans for a public memorial. He will be put to rest in San Diego, where he lived

announced Monday at the Continuum of Care (CoC) meeting that it will be closing its only remaining shelter, at the fairgrounds, on Jan. 31. “We want to respect the fact that, longterm, people shouldn’t be sleeping on cots,” Amanda Ree, executive director for the Northeastern California chapter of the Red Cross, told the CN&R. “It’s not a long-term environment.” According to Ree, who lives in Chico, the Red Cross on Monday switched gears and began to assign case workers to meet one-onone with everyone staying at the fairgrounds to develop individual recovery plans, including discussing living arrangements. “We’re not going to put folks out on the streets who literally have no place to go,” she said. “We have a network of partners who may be able to work toward a solution.” That network includes local agencies and service providers as well as those on the state and federal level. If history repeats, however, the burden likely will fall on local agencies. In recent years, the Red Cross has come under scrutiny for its tactics as well as its use of funding. A 2016 report following

relief efforts in Haiti, for instance, revealed that one-quarter of the money donated to the agency for that cause—a full $125 million—was spent internally. A Red Cross employee told news reporters covering the aftermath of Hurricane Irma in Miami in 2017 that the emergency shelter there was never meant to be long-term. Three hundred people were staying there at the time that shelter was closed. That employee told CBS that “we want people to move forward; we don’t want them to sit and languish in a pseudo-comfortable situation when they should be out working hard to figure out what they’re going to do next.” Griggs and other local homeless advocates

are concerned about the number of people who have become homeless because of the Camp Fire. Many who had insurance or have received other financial assistance have found housing locally, are bunking with family and friends or have simply moved out of the area. The Torres Community Shelter is planning to open up 24/7 and become completely low-barrier, which will ease some of the stress on local resources. Pets will be


allowed, Executive Director Joy Amaro told the CoC at its meeting Monday, and the shelter will discontinue drug testing. The shelter received a portion of the money donated by the Walmart Foundation to fund these changes. The bulk of the funding will go toward an additional low-barrier shelter and a site has been tentatively identified, but retrofitting and permitting are needed before that can open, Jesus Center Executive Director Laura Cootsona said at the meeting. With those limited options, a contracted housing market and limited vacancies at local RV parks in Butte County, Griggs told the CN&R that CoC case workers are now faced with the reality of having difficult conversations with those whose options are running out. “We’re figuring out how we can fund some rental assistance so we can relocate people out of the area,” she said. “We’re asking people to uproot and leave something they may have known for many years and move hundreds of miles away. We’re working with those folks that have a variety of challenges, and we’re asking them to do things that most of us would never, ever consider.” The Red Cross’ Ree acknowledges that options are few for those staying at the fairgrounds, especially considering the state-run debris-removal program has yet to begin. Many folks may be able to move back to their properties while that process is underway, however, according to Casey Hatcher, economic and community development manager for Butte County. In the town of Paradise, property owners are able to live in RVs on their land if it’s two-thirds of an acre or larger, she said. In unincorporated Butte County, it must be at least an acre. In addition, Gridley has approved 350 manufactured homes for fire survivors provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. “One of the challenges is people want to stay close to home,” Hatcher said of the Red Cross shelter closing. “Not everyone is going to have that opportunity.” Griggs is confident that the hundreds of people residing at the fairgrounds won’t be put out on the streets, but rather that local service providers and government will work together to come up with a fallback plan. “It is very sudden, it is very concerning and worrying. [But] I have to have trust and faith that our county and the Red Cross and FEMA know not to just shut that gate and evict the people,” she said. “There will be a solution that is workable for all parties.” Ω

Identity crisis Fire aid magnifies notion of ‘deserving’ homeless The first day Chico State classes resumed following the campus’

Camp Fire hiatus, a student approached sociology professor Nandi Crosby-Jordan with an ethical question. “Dr. Nandi,” the student asked, “how do you feel about people who’ve been homeless for a long time taking advantage of resources for the displaced?” Crosby-Jordan had a ready answer: “I don’t feel the need to distinguish.” She realized, perhaps, there might not be enough supplies for everyone. She also knew the resources that have come to Butte County because of the disaster are, as she told a group Saturday night (Jan. 12), “the types of things the homeless community have been asking for, for a long time … not until after the fire did we see certain people as ‘deserving’” of assistance. Crosby-Jordan, chair of the university’s Sociology Department, shared this perspective during a presentation about economic justice in Butte County. The occasion was the annual community meeting for the Chico chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which drew a standing-room-only audience to the Chico Women’s Club. “It’s not your job to judge,” she continued. “Your job is to show up and love. Your job is to ask the universe how to help.” Crosby-Jordan originally had planned to speak about economic justice in general terms—and, indeed, she discussed the difference between equality (e.g., everyone getting the same thing) and equity (everyone getting the same access to opportunity). But, at the request of ACLU chapter President Shelby Chase, Crosby-Jordan homed in on local homelessness, particularly since the disaster. She also invited her husband, Joaquin Crosby-Jordan, a counselor and case manager at the Torres Community Shelter, to participate. When she asked him the greatest lesson he’s learned about people while working at the homeless shelter, he replied: “The only distinction is they have a different address…. “It doesn’t matter what triggered homelessness,” he later said, “they are the same. If you give [someone] a pair of socks, they don’t say, ‘I’m predisaster homeless, the socks feel different.’”

SIFT ER Death by opioid The odds of dying from opioid overdose in America have surpassed those of being killed in a motor-vehicle crash. According to a just-released Injury Facts report by the National Safety Council, the lifetime odds of dying by accidental opioid overdose are 1 in 96, compared to 1 in 103 by motor-vehicle crash, which is followed by death by falling (1 in 114). That makes opioid overdose the No. 1 cause of accidental preventable death in the U.S., and the fifth most common preventable cause of death overall, behind heart disease, cancer, chronic lower respiratory disease and suicide. This is especially sobering news given the recent overdoses in Chico and elsewhere in Northern California (see Editorial, page 4). The numbers are based on 2017 data.

After the presentation, Chase explained her request to focus on

homelessness. “I was very touched to see people’s outreach from the Camp Fire, but I was disturbed that before this [so many] people had no humanity for homeless people, no empathy, and afterward are categorizing why [they’re] homeless,” she said, “never once thinking about what brought the previously homeless people into that situation. “I think recognizing that there is that divide will lead to change.” The ACLU is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization whose members serve as watchdogs for civil rights infringements in matters such as police practices, freedom of information and privacy. “I think people don’t recognize homelessness as a civil liberties issue,” Chase said. “They don’t see that their civil rights are violated. “Here in Chico, they take away their access to public restrooms [at night]. The people here who criminalize the homeless, who think that to issue citations or take them to jail is the solution, I can’t even comprehend it.” Social and economic justice encompass factors beyond homelessness: race, gender, sexuality, economic status, incarceration. With the county’s demographics, Crosby-Jordan understands the emphasis locally. She noted that many displaced by the fire already lived on the cusp of homelessness. “We have disproportionate numbers of people of color [in poverty], but my students are always surprised to find out that, just in sheer numbers, whites are the poorest people in America,” she told the CN&R, adding: “I don’t think that our story here … is rare in America.” —EVAN TUCHINSKY eva ntu c h insk y @ newsr ev iew.c o m

Your Downtown Shoe StoreCouncil accepts funding for officer amid criticism of police Since 1976

For the members of the Chico City Council, accepting a

private $500,000 donation to hire another police officer for three years seemed a no-brainer. Over 30 Brands of Shoes, At Tuesday’s (Jan. 15) regular meeting, Mayor Socks & Accessories Over 30 Brands of Shoes, Randall Stone reminded attendees that Chico is feeling ...and more Socks & Accessories ...and the more impacts of being in a federal disaster zone. One of Downtown Chico Clark Road Downtown them is the strain on public safety. 345-4880 Paradise Chico 345-4880 Paradise will rebuild ...and more 872-0812 “We already know we have the extra 15- to 20,000 people, so this is an absolutely necessary element ... we Clark Road Downtown need to bring on an extra officer, probably more,” he said. Paradise Chico 872-0812 345-4880 Stone was responding to a number of speakers who Your plumbing encouraged the council to either redirect or reject the donation, decrying the police department’s conduct and recent killings of those suffering from mental illness. Some advocated that the money be directed toward expanding the operating hours of the mobile crisis unit, a county operation staffed with mental health workers only during business hours. Ultimately, the panel unanimously accepted the donation, but not before Chief Mike O’Brien became the target of that criticism. While making her argument against funding an additional officer, Erica Traverso, a regular attendee, brought up the wrongful death lawsuits against the city for the police killings of Desmond Phillips and Tyler Rushing, as well as the recent $950,000 city settlement granted to Mindy Losee for the shooting death of her daughter Breanne Sharpe at the hands of police (see “Together in tragedy,” Newslines, Sept. 21, 2017). Phillips was 25 when he was shot and killed during a mental health episode in his home in 2017. That same year, Tyler Rushing, 34, was killed by a security guard

and police officers downtown. Sharpe, 19, was shot and killed by police inside a stolen car in 2013. “[Chief O’Brien] refuses to get his officers the proper implicit bias training and [crisis intervention training] needed to lessen this violence,” Traverso said. “Until he [retires], I don’t believe any new officers should be funded.” Criticism by her and a few other speakers prompted

council members to defend O’Brien’s character. Councilwoman Ann Schwab said O’Brien “does not promote violence in his officers” and “is a fair man who believes in community policing. “I think he’d probably be the first to tell you we need a lot more in our community,” she said. “We do need mental health responses, but we also need cops that can run out and protect us when they’re needed.” Stone added that he knows O’Brien “to be an honorable and decent man.” But the advocates for the victims of police killings weren’t finished. They took to the dais again during the business from the floor portion of the meeting. “The emotional outpouring and defense of the police chief is a misdirection from the issues he is being called out for,” Rain Scher said. North Valley Community Foundation (NVCF) submitted the money, separate from its Camp Fire relief fund, on behalf of a private donor it chose not to identify. Jovanni Tricerri, the nonprofit’s director for Response & Recovery, told the CN&R that NVCF will bring another $500,000 donation from the same

HOME AT LAST

After being cut in two in the fall of 2016, one of Chico’s historic homes, believed to be the last in the area of the Gothic revival style, made a slow, steady journey from West Fifth Street to Humboldt Avenue. There, it has been reassembled to preserve its historical character from when it was originally built in 1883, under the stewardship of contractor Joe Card and owners Josh and Scott Hubbard. “If we would have lost it, we would have lost a part of what makes this place so special,” Scott (not pictured) told the CN&R.

donor to the Butte County Board of Supervisors with the intent of funding an additional sheriff’s deputy for three years. The night also included another

historically contentious topic for Chico: homelessness. City Manager Mark Orme was directed to work with service providers, the county and other stakeholders to develop guidelines for a “code blue” emergency shelter program, to determine how to take in homeless folks temporarily during extreme cold weather conditions. This topic was brought up in the context of the closure of the American Red Cross shelter at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds at the end of the month (see “Shelter no more,” page 8). The stakeholders aren’t set to meet until Feb. 8, the earliest everyone could get together, Orme said. In the meantime, it’s not clear where the hundreds of people at the fairgrounds will go. “This code blue thing is life or death,” Councilman Scott Huber said. “I’d like to see the city take a bigger ownership of this.”

A townhall Meeting For Victims of the Camp Fire to Learn About the Law And Ask Questions.

In an interesting twist just before

the meeting adjourned to closed session, Councilman Karl Ory made an announcement that a Fair Political Practices Commission complaint was filed against him, allegedly by former Councilman Mark Sorensen upon his departure from office. The complaint alleged that Ory had a conflict of interest when it came to Chico Scrap Metal, Ory said. He added that the FPPC rejected the complaint. Later, he told the CN&R he brought this up to further his argument with the City Attorney’s Office that he is capable of voting on issues related to Chico Scrap Metal, which is currently the subject of three active cases against the city. Deputy City Attorney Andrew Jared told him at a previous meeting not to vote on matters related to the recycler, but Ory said he has received no written, detailed explanation from the City Attorney’s Office. “I think it’s yet one more example of a wrong-headed movement by the city attorney,” he said. “It’s disturbing that any elected official could be disallowed from his duty by a corporate attorney from Los Angeles.” —AshIAh schArAgA ashiahs@ n ewsr ev i ew. com

He knows it’s because of the trauma so many members of the community—on the Ridge and in the valley—endured during and following the Camp Fire. “One of my goals is to help people think about what they can do to improve their own situation,” he told the CN&R from a conference room at his office, his therapy dog, Winston, resting at his feet. This often takes the form of an exercise in which he asks patients to practice giving their situation a letter grade.

“What can you do to incrementally improve your situation?” he’ll ask. It can be a small thing, like making one phone call or going for a walk. This prescription isn’t just for Camp Fire survivors, but anybody feeling emotional distress or fatigue from the disaster. It’s important for the community to “acknowledge the hardship for all of us,” that “there are losses” everyone is grappling with. “This should be a time of really exquisite self care.” To help community members learn some tools to make that happen, local health professionals are ramping up their efforts. At Enloe, staff have undergone crisis and resiliency training. Meanwhile, the Butte County Department of Behavioral Health is pursuing a grant to deploy crisis counselors for the next nine months. Additionally, multiple humanitarian organizations have dedicated their resources to the region. While all are offering different aid, they

children through games that fostered trust and support, Ross said, and taught lessons about boundaries. During one such activity, children wrote or acted out an epic story, following a hero who faces a daunting obstacle and, after discovering a supportive friend or community, triumphs at the end. In this way, the arts “can be a vehicle for communication and expression and gaining insight and awareness,” Ross said, “encouraging imagination and creativity while they’re processing their feelings.” The Art of Living Foundation has a different approach. According to Deepak Gilra, foundation director for Sacramento, their philosophy is to help participants grapple with a tough task: “How do we help the mind relieve the trauma of the past or the anxiety of the future?” That’s where mind-body resilience training comes into play. The foundation is known for providing programs that include breathing techniques, meditation and yoga, with the goal of reducing stress and fostering inner peace, happiness and well-being. They are HEALTHLINES c o n t i n u e d

share a common goal: providing emotional support and fostering resiliency, as well as reassuring community members that they are not alone in the recovery process. According to the U.S. Substance Abuse and

Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), survivors of traumatic events most commonly experience anxiety, sadness and trouble sleeping, as well as upset stomachs and headaches, overeating or loss of appetite. These symptoms, including intense grief, can linger, especially for those who lost loved ones. If people are feeling stuck in a place of helplessness and unable to function in their relationships, work or daily life, that’s when they should seek help, Nichols said. Israel-based humanitarian organization IsraAID has found arts and drama therapy to be effective in helping communities heal following disasters. IsraAID has worked closely with Boys & Girls Clubs of the North Valley staff, Paradise police officers and Congregation Beth Israel caregivers—offering training and support circle sessions, which it plans to continue. David Ross, who is leading IsraAID’s efforts in Chico, said a key goal of their volunteer work is to provide local leaders with enduring, meaningful tools they can use to help their community as it recovers.

planning open sessions for community members as well as private sessions for organizations. As outside relief organizations

inevitably leave, Behavioral Health plans to have additional mental health crisis counselors on hand through the summer. Behavioral Health Director Dorian Kittrell said the department already has grant-funded counselors from the 2017 Wall Fire, who were able to be deployed at emergency shelters for the Camp Fire. The department has applied for additional federal funds, which, if received, Kittrell said, could bring in more than 20 mental health counselors. The counselors would focus on providing emotional support, stress-reduction techniques and coping strategies, according to Don Taylor, Behavioral Health assistant director of Clinical Services. They’ll do so through community forums, school visits and phone calls to survivors, promoting “resilience, empowerment and recovery.” Holli Drobny, Behavioral Health community services program manager, said the department received trauma training before the disaster and is undergoing American Red Cross psychologi-

cal first-aid training. During one session, Drobny and her colleagues learned how to recognize signs of stress in themselves and their clients, and how to provide immediate support. One of her key takeaways: spending just 10 minutes to 15 minutes a day connecting with someone about thoughts and feelings can be incredibly helpful. This tip also is suggested by SAMHSA, which recommends engaging in physical activity, focusing on healthy eating, re-establishing routines, celebrating successes and returning to enjoyable activities. Nichols has an optimistic view of recovery. In general, the more people start to regain control over their lives, housing and employment, and re-establish a sense of community, they will begin to feel safer and more secure. Nichols said this puts them at less of a risk of developing long-term mental health effects. “It’s not inevitable people will have long-term trauma.” Ω

WEEKLY DOSE Three easy habits for 2019

1. Get eight hours of sleep. At least most nights. Yes, you can sleep when you’re dead, but if you do it now, you’ll be happier while alive.

2. Redefine your idea of exercise. Build exercise into your day by getting out of the car to walk or bike to your destination.

3. Put down the phone. Quit scrolling and talk to a real person. Unplug and be mindful, even just for a few minutes a day.

Rape Crisis Intervention & Prevention Adults who experienced sexual violence as a child are not alone. No matter what, the abuse was not their fault. Adult survivors live with these memories for a long time. Some survivors keep the abuse a secret for many years. Often when people are in recovery, experience partner abuse or if their perpetrator dies, all of these unwanted feelings come flooding back. They may have tried to speak to an adult or felt there was no one they could trust when the abuse occurred. For these reasons and many others, the effects of child sexual violence can occur many years after the abuse has ended. There is no set timeline for dealing with, and recovering from, this experience.

Rape Crisis intervention and Prevention is the perfect resource and are always there to help and listen.

If someone you care about suffered sexual violence as a child your reaction can have a big impact on the survivor. It is not always easy to know what to say, but you can help the healing process begin.

Hemp on our horizon

the agency’s “authority to regulate products containing cannabis or cannabis-derived compounds.” UC Davis plans to study hemp, spearheaded by Charlie Brummer, a plant sciences professor and director of the university’s Center for Plant Breeding. “There’s certainly a lot of positive attributes in hemp and hemp fibers,” Brummer said. Whether the crop takes off “is an open question,” he continued. “In the north valley, there are other crops that have very high value … it’s opportunity cost. “An advantage of hemp, or tomatoes for that matter, over trees is it’s not a permanent crop. If you have varying water, you’re in for a year and you’re out. But it’s all about the value of the crop you can get off it, and it seems at this point, the medicinal or nutritional [yield] would be the thing that would make it a cash crop.” Hill said he visited hemp farms in Nevada growing the crop for livestock feed. Regardless of the end product, farmers appreciate the plant’s deep tap root, which draws water and nutrients from below other plants—a benefit when rotating different crops. The root system, left behind after harvest, provides the ecological benefit of sequestering carbon. Water need “depends on the environment and the variety of plant you have,” Mendoza said. “I think you can tailor [hemp farming] to whatever irrigation system you have to deal with it in your area.” Added Hill: “You just don’t know until you get out there and put a crop in the ground.” Ω

Feds relegalize local historic commodity crop

Iabout lished a letter from Yuma, Ariz., inquiring the hemp industry in Butte County.

n August 1898, the Pacific Rural Press pub-

“Does it grow wild? About what acreage is there?” The writer reeled off a half-dozen questions, then wrote: “I am very anxious to learn all I can about the hemp....” The San Francisco-based publication reached out to John Heaney of Gridley, described as “interested in fiber production for a good many years, most of the time being actively engaged in the business.” Heaney described what it took to grow, harvest and process the plant—the latter requiring significant effort and water. He explained that “hemp does not grow wild, but has to be sown every spring,” and estimated about 600 acres of it grew in the county. Six hundred acres may not seem like much, compared with contemporary totals of 55,000 acres for walnuts and 41,000 acres for almonds. But Rob Hill, Butte County deputy agricultural commissioner, notes that without modern mechanization, “100 acres of that stuff could be a lot of work.” Hemp farming continued into the early 20th century, hit a peak during World War II due to demand for strong fibers, then stopped. “It wasn’t the hemp,” Hill said. “It was the marijuana issue that was affecting the hemp.” Hemp and marijuana are both part of the same plant genus, cannabis. Hemp has next to none of the psychoactive compound THC that makes marijuana a potent medicinal and recreational drug. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration lists cannabis on its most restrictive tier; that’s kept hemp under the same federal ban. But the times, they are a-changin’. With marijuana legal in 33 states and Washington, D.C., for medical and/or recreational use, the federal government lifted the prohibition on growing hemp as a provision in the newest version of the farm bill, which the president signed late last month. House Resolution 2, formally titled the

Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, changes U.S. Department of Agriculture policy to “legalize industrial hemp and make hemp producers eligible for the federal crop insurance program.” Both the USDA and the California Department of Food and Agriculture now classify hemp as a commodity crop—akin to nuts, grains, fruits, etc. Since legalization, Hill and Butte County Agricultural Commissioner Louie Mendoza told the CN&R they’ve had a dozen inquiries from locals interested in hemp farming. Colleen Cecil, executive director of the Butte County Farm Bureau, says she’d fielded one call. “There’s not a lot of general knowledge about this plant,” Hill said. “There’s a lot of people [in farming who are] suspicious about it because of the nature of where it comes from, its association with marijuana. But that’s just a matter of education; over time, they’ll begin to look at some of the reasons for growing it and the value it has as a crop.” Full text:

Hemp’s value has changed since before the

ban. It once was prized as source material for rope and sails—“The fiber in New York is now worth $100 per ton,” Heaney wrote in 1898. It’s become more popular for production of oil extracts and animal food. The oils contain cannabinoids, chemicals specific to cannabis plants that trigger various physiological reactions. CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the most common as an active ingredient for medicinal supplements (see “ABCs of CBD,” Healthlines, Oct. 25, 2018). It’s not psychoactive. “CBD itself does have some pharmaceutical value to it—it’s being used for epilepsy; there’s some use of it for autism,” said John Yoder, professor of plant sciences at UC Davis. “Whether it works or not is not totally clear. No one in the U.S., or basically worldwide, has been allowed to study cannabis as a medicine since the early 1930s.” Only now, with hemp removed from the Controlled Substances Act, can American scientists start researching the plant and its properties. Still, the FDA rattled its sword the day the president signed H.R. 2 with a 1,464word statement by its commissioner asserting

Milkshakes and doughnuts

After the Camp Fire ignited, Chicostart knew it had to open its doors as soon as possible, says Director Wendy Porter. Whether it was to offer a space in which to connect with one another or to wifi, transition their phone lines or get some work done amid the chaos, entrepreneurs found they could turn to the business incubator to regroup. Now, Chicostart—which provides shared office and meeting space at City Hall—has joined a task force to tackle one of the most important postfire jobs: ensuring the economic vitality of the Ridge. Businesses seeking assistance can go to buttecountyrecovers.org or chicostart.com for resources. Earlier this week, Porter and Chicostart Operations Manager Timothy Sharkey sat down with the CN&R to discuss their efforts.

How many Ridge businesses are at ChicoStart right now? Sharkey: It’s about 15 different businesses currently that are in here out of the Paradise [area]. We have a construction company, a phone answering service, accountants, environmental services … an attorney. Porter: And we have a handful of software programmers, tech professionals that work remotely for companies in the Bay Area.

What is the task force about? Porter: That business task force has been critical for our collaboration and to kind of help it go smoothly. It started out a little bit more small, where it was just the Chico Chamber, Paradise Chamber, Chicostart, the county and the [Chico State Center for Economic Development] and 3CORE. And then … when the [U.S. Small Business Administration] got here, we pulled their representatives in, and the city’s. Sharkey: Salesforce ... donated 50 [software] licenses [for all the different agencies] to put together a CRM, customer relationship manage-

ment. So we put them into the system and that’s where we can make the referrals. [Initially], we’re targeting all the businesses that were servicebased—grocery stores, hardware stores, anything that can help support the crews that are going to be up there for the next five, 10 years. Porter: The businesses that would support the rebuilding. Sharkey: We have a list of 40 different businesses that were looking for help. We also have a list of at least 40 different facilities and different businesses that have offered up either separate offices, work stations, extra space at their facilities. So now that we’re full, it’s kind of trying to match these.

What’s your role going to be moving forward? Porter: The unknown is, how long is this going to take? We don’t know. We would hope that we would be able to save a business that—they’re so distraught over losing their business, over losing their home—they want to leave the area. But [there’s] this community that we’ve kind of put around these victims, saying, “Hey, there’s a community of support here. We want to try to get you back on your feet, that’s the goal.” —ASHIAH SCHARAGA as h i a h s @new srev i ew. c o m

Last week, after talking about it for, I don’t know, six months at least, my boyfriend, Chuck, and I finally found ourselves at the counter ordering lunch at The Foodie Cafe. With its location all the way across town from us at the Chico Municipal Airport, it was well worth the wait—and the drive. My burger and Chuck’s pastrami sandwich were both delicious, but what blew us away, truly, were the milkshakes. Chuck ordered a mixed berry and … wow. Presentation aside—with a doughnut on top!—it was so good I had to get my own, lest I drink half of his, which he declared “the best milkshake I’ve ever had.” Since Paradise High moved into the old Facebook building nearby, they saw a need to expand their offerings. And, boy, did they. In addition to opening up a special area for the 11th- and 12th-graders (younger students cannot leave campus), the cafe hired separate staff to work out of a separate kitchen just for them. Parents were grumbling this week on Facebook about PHS running out of food on the first day, but in addition to Foodie Cafe, ThirdLove, whose offices are also nearby, arranges for rotating food trucks available to students and there may be more mobile eateries taking up residence as well.

Eat up Explore Butte County, the region’s tourism outfit, has coordinated with a dozen-plus restaurants—in Chico, Durham and Oroville—to offer special menu items for Butte County Restaurant Week (Jan. 18-27). The offerings revolve around the theme of “perfect pairings,” which has been interpreted in a variety of ways. In Chico, the participating restaurants are concentrated in the downtown area and include some fun menu options. Tres Hombres, for example, will be pairing a Spanish seafood paella with a traditional margarita, while La Salles’ pairing is a Donut Nook bread pudding and Chicoan Frank Riley’s Ambassador’s Irish Coffee. In Durham, Almendra Winery & Distillery will offer three different pairings, two of which are drink flights and the third a “perfect meal for two.” The lone participant in Oroville, The Exchange, will serve up tomato soup and grilled cheese. The group’s website, explorebuttecounty.com, is difficult to navigate, but does provide more information, with the caveat that pairings are still being added—so check for updates before heading out.

at long last It’s been nine years since Hollywood Video closed and, finally, some

action is happening in the old store on East Avenue. City Manager Mark Orme tells me it’s going to be a showroom for Courtesy Motors, whose BMW; Subaru; and Buick, Cadillac and GMC dealerships are located across Cohasset Road.

DinnEr anD a show I had a craving for shawarma recently and satisfied it with

lunch at Cafe Petra. While he made my food, owner Mohammed Shabbar informed me that the Second Street eatery now has Eastern Star Bellydance performers in on Saturday evenings. Sounds fun!

T Nutrition writer offers dietary and other advice for a healthy, fulfilling 2019

he dawning of a new year grants us the opportunity to re-examine our behaviors from the past 12 months—what we are pleased with, and what we plan to leave behind. Perhaps you’ve been toying with the idea of cleaning up your diet, or taking on some goals you’d like to accomplish but just haven’t been able to muster up the will power. Remember, the groundwork for all happiness is health. After all, if we don’t have that, we do not have the energy or time to make a positive impact in our personal world or the world around us. I’m a cookbook author, a nutrition writer, a video blogger, a wife and a mother. And I’d like to share some tips to help you. In this season of new beginnings, here are 10 common resolutions and some dietary advice to help you maintain your resolve.

RESOLUTION 1: Eat healthier

About the author:

Michele Swaczyna is the author of the cookbook Be Vegan: Skip the Diet, Just Eat Healthy and shares recipes and lifestyle tips on her YouTube channel (youtube.com/ bvgan) and website (bvgan.com).

A plant-based diet excludes animal products: all meat, seafood, dairy—basically anything that has a mother. If done correctly, a plant-based diet uses little to no oil, minimal to no processed ingredients, and focuses on eating whole foods like fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, herbs, spices, nuts and seeds. Eating this way is lower in saturated fats, free of cholesterol, rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Eating a plant-based diet can prevent and in some cases even reverse heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, high choRESOLUTIONS C O N T I N U E D J A N U A R Y 1 7, 2 0 1 9

lesterol, allergies, headaches, gastrointestinal issues and a host of diseases. A plant-based diet can be key to the illusive fountain of health. At first glance, it may seem restrictive, but this lifestyle can be a simple approach to eating, as well as kinder on your wallet. Just be sure to get in a variety of plant-based proteins (such as beans, quinoa, lentils, tempeh, nuts and seeds), whole grains (like millet, brown rice, oats, barley), as well as fruits and vegetables. Don’t stress—you don’t need to be a culinary genius to eat a healthful, tasty, wellrounded plant-based diet. Think: warm oats or a green smoothie for breakfast, a loaded veggie sandwich or a soup and salad for lunch, brown rice pasta with marinara sauce for a satisfying dinner. Not interested in transitioning overnight? Slow and steady wins the race, too. Try swapping to a plant-based option one meal at a time. Here’s a recipe to whet your appetite: Loaded veggie sandwich 4 slices whole grain bread 4 tablespoons hummus 1/2 ripe avocado (mashed) 1 cup mixed greens 1/4 large cucumber (sliced) 1/2 large tomato (sliced) a few slices of red onion a few slices of mushroom 1-2 tablespoon Bubbies beet horseradish sea or rock salt and pepper to taste Toast your bread and, while waiting, chop up the veggies. Assemble the sandwich with all of the ingredients and devour. Or wrap it up and have it on the go. Serves two.

RESOLUTION 2:

Exercise more

Conventional wisdom is that a vegan diet will negatively affect athletic performance because it doesn’t provide enough protein. However, athletes across many sports are proving the protein myth wrong. Check out vegan bodybuilder Nimai Delgado, or ultra athlete Rich Roll, for example. In fact, the protein requirement for humans is so low (only 5 percent to 10 percent of total caloric intake) that as long as you are eating enough calories to maintain your weight, it’s practically impossible to be protein-deficient. And if you eat a wide variety of whole, unprocessed plants, you will get enough of every essential amino acid, regardless of which diet you choose. By consuming foods high in nutrients and low in calories, you’ll support energy production and muscle recovery without excess fat gain. Indeed, one of the primary advantages cited by pro plant-

Loaded veggie sandwich PHOTO BY MICHELE SWACZYNA

based athletes is that eating this way has lessened their recovery time. An animal-based diet is highly acidic, resulting in inflammation and impaired recovery. An alkaline plant-based diet will not only give you the energy to want to exercise more but also help you recover quicker to perform at your peak the next time you are in the gym, out on the trail, or playing with your kids. Try this recovery shake after your next workout:

Post-workout blend 1 frozen ripe banana 2 kale leaves 1 cup mixed berries 2 cup dairy-free milk (almond or organic soy work well) 1 teaspoon hemp hearts 2 Medjool dates (pitted) Blend until smooth.

RESOLUTION 3: Increase

mental clarity

Adding more plant foods to your diet will optimize brain function. You may even find your attention span longer, a new ability to focus, a sharper memory, and just being able to deal with stressful situations with far less of an emotional response. A healthy brain is a key component to a long and enjoyable life, not to mention a handy helper in checking off everything on your to-do list. Start by adding in fruits high in antioxidants, like wild blueberries and red grapes, to help combat brain fog, protect against damage to brain cells, and boost brain power. To keep your brain at its best, look to foods high in beta-carotene like carrots, oranges, sweet potatoes, mangoes, leafy greens, broccoli and pumpkin. This will boost the memory and reduce cognitive decline. Avocados are amazing for the brain as they are a great source of omega-6 fatty acids. Avocados help restore the central nervous system and aid against Alzheimer’s and dementia. Try my brain-food salad with sweet potatoes the next time you need some focus and brain power. Each ingredient aids in cognitive function. Sweet potatoes 1-2 medium sweet potatoes (peeled and sliced into rounds) 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt 1/4 teaspoon cumin 1/4 teaspoon paprika 1/4 teaspoon sea salt 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


23 Preheat oven to 425 F. Place potato rounds into a steamer insert with about two inches of water in the sauce pan below. Cover and bring to a boil. Allow it to boil for seven minutes, then remove from heat. Transfer potatoes to a parchment paperlined baking sheet, doing your best not to overlap them. In a small bowl, combine all the spices, then sprinkle the mixture evenly over the potatoes. Bake until slightly browned and crispy. About 20 minutes, but you may need up to 30 depending on your oven. Sunflower salad dressing 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds (soaked for about an hour, then drained) 1/2 to 3/4 cup water (to desired thickness) 3 teaspoons fresh squeezed lemon juice 2 cloves garlic 1 tablespoon fresh chives (finely chopped) salt and pepper to taste Place all ingredients except the chives in a Vitamix and blend on high for one to two minutes, until smooth. Scoop out and mix in the chives. Salad 1-2 tablespoons raw walnuts 1/2 avocado (sliced) desired amount red leaf lettuce, or lettuce of your choice desired amount of kale desired amount of rainbow chard desired amount of tomato

A plant-based diet will force you to hone your plant-based cooking skills. Creativity in the kitchen will not only help you thrive, but it’s a great way to tempt your tastebuds through curiosity of all the new foods available to your palate. Learn some basics, and then you get three chances every day to practice them. Trying something new is the name of the game, so make a new recipe once a week. Also, look for inspiration the next time you eat out for dinner.

As we head into the New Year, the physicians and staff at North State Radiology would like to thank the community for making them your medical imaging service provider of choice. They are locally owned and operated and their team of experienced board certified radiologists and licensed technologists work closely with others in the medical community to make sure that each patient has an accurate diagnosis.

RESOLUTION 5:

Lose weight

Large portions without overdoing it on calories? Sign me up! Since most whole plant foods contain 600 calories or fewer per pound (excluding nuts and seeds), you can eat a lot of high-volume food and not feel deprived on your journey to health. On average, people adhering to a plant-based diet have a lower BMI (body mass index) than those on a SAD (standard American diet). Eating high-volume, lower-calorie plant foods allows you the freedom to feel satiated without blowing your daily calorie budget. RESOLUTIONS C O N T I N U E D

Roseleaf Senior Living and Memory Care

Chico Community Acupuncture

Roseleaf would like to take a moment, and share some information, about their team’s new and innovative approach, The Dementia Village Inspired Concept at Roseleaf. They have emphasized their Quality of Life Programming in three important, and fundamental, ways. First, they have adopted a philosophy that values the independence of their residents, and which encourages them to move, and choose, freely throughout all areas of their village, thereby self-determining how they will participate in community life. Additionally, they have developed environments that, in coordination with the independence, freedom of movement, and freedom of choice being offered, support and nourish the residents’ opportunities to take part in purposed and engaging activities and lifestyle choices.

Chico Community Acupuncture’s goal is for you to get as much acupuncture as you want, for whatever you want. Finally, they have fostered a life enrichment approach that focuses on creating personcentered, and interest based, small group, club-style activities and functions. What they have come to realize, and have had the privilege of seeing, is that these approaches have resulted in more active, alert, and engaged residents, specifically, and a community setting that is energized, dynamic, and full of life. They leave you with these important words, which guide the direction of our village... Purpose + Engagement = Meaning.

In 2018 they provided 10,922 treatments. They are honored to be a resource for so many people in our community. Some of the most commonly treated concerns are acute and chronic pain, stress, anxiety, depression, digestive disorders, insomnia, postoperative recovery, injury rehab, allergies, fertility, and headaches. Treatments are safe, effective, and painless.

Thermography by Dr. Michelle Hodge DC, CTT

Sweetwater Day Spa

As a doctor of chiropractic for more than 20 years, Michelle Hodge dedicates a significant part of her practice to various areas of preventative health care. One of those areas is Thermography.

Kick Off the New Year Feeling Beautiful from the Inside Out! Feel beautiful from the inside out with a Sweetwater Day Spa experience. Your senses will be enlightened as you walk through the door. The fragrance of essential oils, the calm music, the tranquil décor, the dim lighting, and the quiet voice greeting you is the serene beginning to your treatment. Your spa visit includes a day of pampering with robes, a recovery lounge, refreshments, and a private accommodation for showers and your personal items. You will experience it all at Sweetwater Day Spa!

Breast Thermography is a test that uses an infrared camera to detect heat patterns and blood flow. It has the ability to visualize the presences of minute blood vessel and temperature variations that may be the first warning of a potential problem. By identifying certain thermographic risk markers, women can work proactively with their doctors to help balance hormones or make lifestyle changes to optimize breast health.

Their mission is to make acupuncture accessible to as many people as possible. They hope that their regular business hours, sliding scale, and dedicated team of licensed acupuncturists will make it possible for you to come in and feel better.

Switching to a plant-based diet does not give you the license eat everything in sight, but you won’t have that deprivation sensation while whittling your waistline. The award-winning ingredient to help you stay satisfied? Vegetables come in at No. 1. Vegetables are generally lower in calories per volume than proteins and grains. So if you want to eat a bigger meal, jam it full of veggies. Leafy greens, lettuce, zucchini, peppers, cucumbers, squash, corn, potatoes and the like all deliver lots of vitamins, minerals and fiber to help you feel fuller longer. Other great options are air-popped popcorn, vegetable soups, or frozen whole fruit pops if you are on the hunt to tame your sweet tooth.

RESOLUTION 7:

Declutter the house

Simple little decisions every single day will allow you to declutter your diet, mind, body … so why not tackle the junk drawer, too? With more mental clarity, vibrancy from eating clean, better sleep, and quality time with the ones you love, why wouldn’t you want to take on the daunting task of the guest room closet? So, take ownership of your excuses, regain responsibility for where you are, and focus on your goals daily. The power to be clean inside and out is within your reach.

RESOLUTION 8: Spend more RESOLUTION 6:

Stop drinking coffee

If you want to kick the caffeine addiction to the curb, there’s an easy plant-based option you can use to reduce your caffeine intake. Chicory root coffee—made from the roots of the chicory plant, which are roasted, ground and then brewed into a coffee-like drink—is a phenomenal substitute. It tastes similar to coffee, is naturally caffeinefree, acid free, and has a slightly woody or nutty flavor. It is a good source of insulin, a type of prebiotic fiber that has been linked to increased weight loss and improved gut health. It also contains some manganese and vitamin B6 (nutrients tied to brain health).

time with loved ones

Consuming fruits and veggies effectively increases serotonin levels (the happiness chemical), which can transform us into someone people actually want to hang around. And who knows, if you make the decision to eat more plants as a family, you may actually eliminate family drama. Having the support of doing this together will encourage you to stay the course, try out new recipes together, and just generally keep you inspired and excited as you see positive changes in yourself and those you love.

RESOLUTION 9:

Wake up earlier

People following a plant-based diet are more likely to get a better night’s sleep due to the fact that their meals come from easily digestible foods compared to a diet rich in meat and dairy. Vitamin B6, found in avocados, bananas, sweet potatoes and leafy greens, contributes to a full night’s rest. It will help you wake ready to face the day with a smile. If your body is chronically deprived of regenerative sleep, you may still feel fatigued when you wake up. Research suggests that going to bed earlier not only enables you to get the recommended seven to eight hours of sleep, but also leaves time to fit in a bit of exercise before work, giving you even more power and energy to accomplish all of your goals for the day.

RESOLUTION 10:

Have a better love life

Feeling comfortable in your own skin is key to being confident and hooking the attention of that special someone. Adopting a diet rich in whole, waterloaded foods will help you achieve smooth, glowing, vibrant skin. Choosing fruits and veggies high in antioxidants will help build collagen and increase elasticity, counteracting free radicals and anti-inflammatory responses. Conversely, consuming a diet high in meats, dairy, processed foods and high fat may contribute to acne, allergies, skin inflammation and body odor. Not so sexy. A diet high in fruits and vegetables will keep your body smelling fresh from the inside out. Think of it as an internal deodorant leaving you smelling sweet and luring the one you want closer for some quality time. Try adding more watermelon to your diet. This fruit flushes out toxins quickly and allows the immune system to reset itself, not to mention giving you a flat stomach. It’s good for the blood vessels and may increase libido. It’s such a fast-digesting fruit that it’s best to eat it on an empty stomach. Here’s an easy recipe to get your juices flowing for an early morning romp. Watermelon 4 cups watermelon (diced) 2 tablespoons fresh mint (chopped) Fresh lime juice to taste Place watermelon in a large bowl. Squeeze the lime juice on top, and sprinkle with fresh mint. Feel hydrated and energized to take on your next conquest. Ω

Previous years have featured productions built around Queen’s A Night at the Opera, the Beatles’ Abbey Road and the music of Stevie Wonder (the latter two were also directed by Rauter). “We have this great opportunity to do this show at Laxson that is more than just a show with a band,” Rauter said. “It’s not just music; it’s for all the senses. It’s a big spectacle of the 26

incredible talent that somehow has come to Chico and the surrounding areas,” Rauter said. In fact, it’s the wealth of local talent that informs the Uncle Dad’s model for the show, which mandates that artists are sourced completely from the North State. “We use these shows as an excuse to get all the artists that we think should be working together in the same room working on one project at the same time,” said Joshua Hegg, musical director and one of the keyboardists for the Madonna show. This year, Rauter said the goal was to feature the work of a female artist for the first time. Though there were other possibilities in the mix—Amy Winehouse, Fleetwood Mac, etc.—Madonna wound up as the obvious choice. “She’s such a chameleon,” Rauter said. “She was really unapologetic about her sexuality and what she believed in.” The show is kind of a retrospective of Madonna’s career, with 18 songs culled from her four decades of music-making, but with the bulk of the set comprising the 1980s and ’90s hits of her heyday. Each selection features one or more guest vocalists—some plucked from the Uncle Dad’s ensemble (e.g., Sutton-Beattie, Jenise Coon, Michael Bone), some from the local community (Matilda Krulder, The Bidwells duo, rappers Calvin Black and Saint Jame, etc.)—and Hegg said that, for this show, the process of matching songs to singers was done differently. “Most years we write the arrangements and decide [the] scope of the song and find people to fit that vibe,” he said. “This year, the bulk of them were written with the vocalists decided ahead of time.” Hegg sent notes to the various arrangers and included links with sample vocals. “We wanted the whole show to be created from the ground up all at the same time,” he said. Given the songs, the show naturally will highlight Madonna’s themes of female empowerment and championing the LGBTQ community, while also playing off her fun, unabashed sexuality. “It’s meant to be a vast retelling of what we think is Madonna’s essence,” Hegg said.

of promising-looking productions? There are so many intriguing by (The Almond Jason Cassidy Orchard, The River Bride), j aso nc@ newsrev i ew.c om high-caliber (Our Town, Mamma Mia!, Summertime) and gloriously ridiculous (Hand to God, Happy Hour) options hitting the boards that it’s going to be a challenge to fit it all in. Here’s a preview of as many winter/spring productions as we could cram into this space. Hand to God, Blue Room Theatre (Jan. 17-Feb. 2). A play that stars a possessed Christianministry hand puppet and “explores the startlingly fragile nature of faith, morality, and the ties that bind us.” Hello, Dolly!, California Regional Theatre (Jan. 23Feb. 3), CUSD Center for the Arts. You’ll “feel the room swaying ‘cause the band’s playing one of your old favorite songs from way back when.” Our Town, Chico State (Jan. 25-26), Harlen Adams Theatre. During his life, Thornton Wilder scorned the advances of Leonard Bernstein and Aaron Copland to adapt his Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, but in 2006, music won out and Chico State’s School of the Arts will present the

contemporary operatic version. Mamma Mia!, Chico Theater Company (Jan. 25-Feb. 24). Come for the ABBA songs, stay for the ABBA songs, try and get the ABBA songs out of your head the rest of the year!

Creative kids dive into the dark and silly humor of this musical-comedy update of the famous family of monsters. Radioland’s Return to Paradise, Theatre on the Ridge (Feb. 14-March 3). Local writer/ director Jerry Miller’s endlessly adaptable musical revue is back. And for the first show at the Paradise theater since the Camp Fire, he’s composed a love letter to the town at a time when everyone could use a little tuneful distraction. GarageFest, various locations (March 8-9). Not too many details yet, but a promising concept choreographed by Slow Theatre is in the works with local theater organizations setting up productions in different garages for a roving theater festival. Stay tuned. The Almond Orchard, Blue Room (March 14-30). Local actor/ director Joyce Henderson’s localized adaptation of Anton Chekov’s final play, The Cherry Orchard. Nunsense, Chico Theater Company (March 22-April 14). The musical-comedy standard.

Happy Hour, Chico State (March 30), Laxson Auditorium. Chico Performances presents New York dance duo Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass, who bring comedy, slapstick and interpretive dance together for a fun play about a couple of guys trying to make an impression at an office party. The River Bride, Chico State (April 4-7), Wismer Theatre. A contemporary Amazon folk tale featuring an engaged young woman who doesn’t want to get married, a sister who is in love with the groom, and a mysterious man pulled from the river who “offers the sisters an alluring, possibly dangerous future.” The Book Club Play, Theatre on the Ridge (April 4-21). What happens when a book club is invaded by a documentary film crew? Comedy, of course. Summertime, Butte College (April 26-May 5), Black Box Theatre, ARTS Building. Theater students tackle Charles Mee’s dreamy romantic comedy about the pain, beauty and messiness of love. Beauty and the Beast, Chico State (May 2-5), Laxson Auditorium. The immensely popular musical version of the Disney film gets the full-scale production it deserves in the Department of Music and Theatre’s spring show. The Madam and the Mayor’s Wife, Blue Room (May 2-18). Local actor/writer/director Hilary Tellesen says her latest original work is “about the West and the capitalization of desire.” Ω

Grandma Hatsue (Kiki Kilin) cashes her pension checks and splurges on pachinko.

Little Juri (Sasaki Miyu), utterly neglected by her abusive parents, is welcomed into the shoplifters’ family and stays on with them even after her actual parents belatedly go public with a claim that she’s been kidnapped. The first half of Shoplifters has an almost picaresque flair to it, rather as if the family of shoplifters were immersed in a semi-comic adventure and winning small victories of rebellion against an unjust social system. But in the second half, harsher realities and moral pungencies start coming home to roost. And the two youngest characters, Shota and Juri, become key protagonists in quietly accelerated dramas of moral and personal awareness. Ω

Second Act

No movie adaptation has captured the rush of reading an exciting comic book like this blast of energy from directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman. They go for broke with a seamless mixture of visual styles—hand-drawn and computer animated—and the story is pretty great, to boot. Teenager Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) is bitten by a strange spider and then, with his new-found powers in effect, crosses paths with the original Spider-Man, Peter Parker (Chris Pine). Turns out a portal from a parallel universe has opened up, allowing a whole fleet of different Spider-Verse characters to come into his orbit—the older Peter B. Parker (the invaluable Jake Johnson), Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld), Spider-Ham (a mishmash of Spidey and Porky Pig voiced by John Mulaney), Peni Parker (Kimiko Glenn) and her robot and, best of all, Nicolas Cage as the black-and-white Spider-Man Noir. So, Miles is one of many heroes with Spider powers tasked with battling bad dudes. Spider-Verse is surely one of the best movies of the year and the best Spider-Man movie to date. Cinemark 14.

Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen start in this feel-good movie about race relations in America that goes light on the grit and heavy on the sentiment. Based on a true story, it starts off with Tony Lip (Mortensen), an Italian-American bouncer who gets a gig as a driver and bodyguard for Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a black classical pianist who is touring the Deep South. It’s a road movie, with Tony driving and Don sitting in the back seat. The two use the book of the movie’s title—a guide offering a listing of safe havens for black travelers in segregated Southern states—to find places where Don can find shelter and eat. Things get ugly when Don tries to do such mundane things as buy a suit or eat in a restaurant where he’s been hired to play. Tony steps in for his boss during these racially charged episodes, and occasionally cracks a few skulls. As his eyes are opened to the realities of life for Dr. Don, Tony learns lessons about loving people no matter the color of their skin and perhaps about how to drop fewer racial slurs before the credits roll.

Americans have never tasted the fruit. But Brock by Dolman is an Alastair impassioned fan. Bland Every fall he goes foraging for them, and the bounty is almost limitless in rural Sonoma County, where he lives. “You can drive or ride your bike around the county, and you see these enormous trees all over with just thousands and thousands of persimmons,” says Dolman, the co-founder of a permaculture center and demonstration farm in the town of Occidental. There are lots of ways to eat and prepare this fruit. Many varieties, including the fuyu and suruga, are crunchy and can be eaten right off the tree like apples. Others, including the hachiya, saijo and chocolate, are considered astringent varieties. Rich in tannins, they are unpalatable until they’re allowed to ripen to a jellysoft texture, at which point they can be eaten out of hand or used in baking. Several years ago, Dolman learned of a new way to prepare persimmons—a Japanese style called hoshigaki. A revered delicacy in its homeland, hoshigaki is now starting to catch on in America. In Japanese, hoshigaki means simply “dried persimmon,” yet describes a product of such labor that it has been called the Kobe

beef of fruits. To make hoshigaki, producers use twine to suspend peeled persimmons—always of astringent varieties—from bamboo racks, often outdoors in the sun, other times indoors near a fan or over a warm stove. The process can take between one and two months, and every few days caretakers give regular massages to the softening persimmons, which shrivel, turn dark brown and crust over with natural sugar. Dolman says he learned the craft both from speaking to those with firsthand experience and by watching YouTube tutorials. He has gotten the hang of the technique and recently massaged his fourth hoshigaki crop—harvested from a tree in a nearby park— toward completion. He has just a handful left of his 2017 vintage. “I share them only with select friends who will really appreciate them,” he says, adding that he often serves them with aged sheep or goat cheese. Sonoko Sakai, a Los Angelesbased food author, spent years of her childhood in Japan, and is today one of California’s hoshigaki gurus. Sakai’s family was friendly with a major commercial hoshigaki producer in the Japanese city of Ogaki. “They would send us a box each year as a gift, and there were seven of us and just eight hoshigaki in the box, so they were very special,” Sakai says. The family served the fruits with tea or, sometimes, sliced them thinly and applied them as a garnish

over kakinamasu—a daikon and persimmon pickle dish. Hanging, massaging and drying persimmons could be seen as the antithesis to what so much of Western culture now demands and expects—instantaneous gratification, ordered digitally with the push of a button. “Hoshigaki is the epitome of slow food,” Dolman says. For newbies making their first hoshigaki batch, failure rates can be high. Mold can be an issue if the humidity is too high or the temperature is too low. For instance, I tried my own hand at making hoshigaki this fall. I used bamboo shoots to make a rack and twine to hang the persimmons. Though my project had the look of authenticity, the persimmons did not dry rapidly enough, and as a moldy fuzz began to appear on the fruits, I rescued them from spoilage and finished them in my dehydrator. But when everything works as planned, each fruit’s surface turns gummy and solid, while inside the tannins break down and the fruit softens into pulp. Finished hoshigaki are dark burgundy to black in color, often with a fluffy crust of sugar on the surface. “You’re turning a fruit that’s totally inedible when it’s not ripe into a sweet jewel,” says Sakai, whose forthcoming book, Japanese Home Cooking, will include a section on hoshigaki. Maybe that will turn more Americans onto this unusual fruit. Ω

NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT Cute/creepy band alert!

Arts DEVO’s been getting his kicks from Guest No. 66 (sorry, had to do it). The brand-new four-piece features some familiar local faces—guitarist/vocalist Bob Howard (The Vesuvians, Empty Gate); drummer Steve Bragg (Michelin Embers, The Vesuvians) accordionist/vocalist Bryce Goldstein; and ukelele man about town and CN&R contributor Ken Smith on a variety of noisemaking contraptions, including theremin, chord organ, effects pedals and an alarm clock. The band’s played only two shows so far, but has already put out a three-song EP, RadioLand, and it is one engrossing slice of weirdness. My current jam is “Too Many Waves,” a meditative, ambient folk drone that rides muted drums, dry and plinky banjo strings, and harmonizing theremin loops into the desert. Take a vision quest at guestno66.bandcamp.com.

NOTTE ITALIANA Everyone’s favorite earnest troubadour, Jonathan Richman (who. like Mr. Williams above, was in There’s Something About Mary), is all over town this week. In addition to helping out with the cause by performing alongside MaMuse at a Camp Fire benefit at Chico Women’s Club this Friday, Jan. 18, the bona fide Renaissance man is also presenting an evening of Italian poetry and song at Blackbird on Tuesday, Jan. 22, 7-8:30 p.m. Che serata divertente!

e

And coming next month (Feb. 23) are Nick Swardson (at Gold Country) and Harland Williams (coming to the El Rey Theater). Swardson is the genius behind one of my favorite recurring characters from the Reno 911! series, Terry Bernadino, the roller-skating male prosStep into my office … titute and former employee of Tacos! Tacos! Tacos! Tacos! And Williams played that dude in Half Baked who killed the diabetic horse with a pile of munchies, as well as the “sevenminute-abs” hitchhiker in There’s Something About Mary (“It’s like you’re dreamin’ about Gorgonzola cheese when it’s clearly brie time, baby!”). In addition to the visiting comics, there’s also the usual embarrassment of local comedy riches. Just this week there are four shows: Thursday, Jan. 17, at 8 p.m., is a comedy fundraiser for those impacted by the Camp Fire at Copa de Oro in Oroville (with Hank Duke, Jerm Leather, Corey Finnigan, E.V.E., Randy Warner, Jason Allen, Azura Talon and Jesse Clark); Friday, Jan. 18, at 8:30 p.m., is Bob’s Comedy Night at The Maltese (with Bob Backstrom, Steve Swim and Phil from Chico, plus visiting comics Dirty Mike and Feel Woods); and Sunday, Jan. 20, at 7 p.m., there’s The Asstronuts improv show at Chico Live Improv Comedy, followed by the open-mic comedy session at The Maltese at 8:30 p.m.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY For the week oF January 17, 2019 ARIES (March 21-April 19): In 1917, leaders of the Christian sect, Jehovah’s Witnesses, prophesied that all earthly governments would soon disappear and Christianity would perish. In 1924, they predicted that the ancient Hebrew prophet Moses would be resurrected and speak to people everywhere over the radio. In 1938, they advised their followers not to get married or have children because the end of civilization was nigh. In 1974, they said there was only a “short time remaining before the wicked world’s end.” I bring these failed predictions to your attention, Aries, so as to get you in the mood for my prediction, which is: All prophecies that have been made about your life up until now are as wrong as the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ visions. In 2019, your life will be bracingly free of old ideas about who you are and who you’re supposed to be. You will have unprecedented opportunities to prove that your future is wide open.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Movie

critic Roger Ebert defined “idiot plot” as “any film plot containing problems that would be solved instantly if all of the characters were not idiots.” I bring this to your attention because I suspect there has been a storyline affecting you that in some ways fits that description. Fortunately, any temptation you might have had to go along with the delusions of other people will soon fade. I expect that as a result, you will catalyze a surge of creative problemsolving. The idiot plot will transform into a much smarter plot.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In 1865,

Prussia’s political leader, Otto von Bismarck, got angry when an adversary, Rudolf Virchow, suggested cuts to the proposed military budget. Bismarck challenged Virchow to a duel. Virchow didn’t want to fight, so he came up with a clever plan. As the challenged party, he was authorized to choose the weapons for the duel. He decided upon two sausages. His sausage would be cooked; Bismarck’s sausage would be crammed with parasitic roundworms. It was a brilliant stratagy. The proposition spooked Bismarck, who backed down from the duel. Keep this story in mind if you’re challenged to an argument, dispute or conflict in the coming days. It’s best to figure out a tricky or amusing way to avoid it altogether.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): An

imaginative 27-year-old man with the pseudonym thewildandcrazyoli decided he was getting too old to keep his imaginary friend in his life. So he took out an ad on eBay, offering to sell that long-time invisible ally, whose name was John Malipieman. Soon his old buddy was dispatched to the highest bidder for $3,000. Please don’t attempt anything like that in the coming weeks, Cancerian. You need more friends, not fewer—both of the imaginary and nonimaginary variety. Now is a ripe time to expand your network of compatriots.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In December 1981,

novice Leo filmmaker James Cameron got sick, fell asleep and had a disturbing dream. He saw a truncated robot armed with kitchen knives crawling away from an explosion. This nightmare ultimately turned out to be a godsend for Cameron. It inspired him to write the script for the 1984 film The Terminator, a successful creation that launched him to fame and fortune. I’m expecting a comparable development in your near future, Leo. An initially weird or difficult event will actually be a stroke of luck.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Psycholo-

gists define the Spotlight Effect as our tendency to imagine that other people are acutely attuned to every little nuance of our behavior and appearance. The truth is that they’re not, of course. Most everyone is primarily occupied with the welter of thoughts buzzing around inside his or her own head. The good news, Virgo, is that you are well set up to capitalize on this phenomenon in the coming weeks. I’m betting you will achieve a dramatic new liberation: You’ll be freer than ever before from the

by rob brezsny power of other people’s opinions to inhibit your behavior or make you self-conscious.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): What North

America community is farthest north? It’s an Alaskan city that used to be called Barrow, named after a British admiral. But in 2016, local residents voted to reinstate the name that the indigenous Iñupiat people had once used: Utqiagvik. In accordance with astrological omens, I propose that in the coming weeks, you take inspiration from their decision, Libra. Return to your roots. Pay homage to your sources. Restore and revive the spirit of your original influences.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The

Alaskan town of Talkeetna has a population of 900, so it doesn’t require a complicated political structure to manage its needs. Still, it made a bold statement by electing a cat as its mayor for 15 years. Stubbs, a part-Manx, won his first campaign as a write-in candidate, and his policies were so benign—no new taxes, no repressive laws—that he kept getting re-elected. What might be the equivalent of having a cat as your supreme leader for a while, Scorpio? From an astrological perspective, now would be a favorable time to implement that arrangement. This phase of your cycle calls for relaxed fun and amused mellowness and laissez-faire jauntiness.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

Trees need to be buffeted by the wind. It makes them strong. As they respond to breezes and gusts, they generate a hardier kind of wood called reaction wood. Without the wind’s stress, trees’ internal structure would be weak and they might topple over as they grew larger. I’m pleased to report that you’re due to receive the benefits of a phenomenon that’s metaphorically equivalent to a brisk wind. Exult in this brisk but lowstress opportunity to toughen yourself up!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Writ-

ing at The Pudding, an online outlet for virtual essays, pop culture commentator Colin Morris reveals the conclusions he drew after analyzing 15,000 pop songs. First, the lyrics of today’s tunes have significantly more repetitiveness than the lyrics of 1960s songs. Second, the most popular songs, both then and now, have more repetitive lyrics than the average song. Why? Morris speculates that repetitive songs are catchier. But in accordance with current astrological omens, I encourage you Capricorns to be as non-repetitive as possible in the songs you sing, the messages you communicate, the moves you make and the ideas you articulate. In the coming weeks, put a premium on originality, unpredictability, complexity and novelty.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In May

1927, Aquarian aviator Charles Lindbergh made a pioneering flight in his singleengine plane from New York to Paris. He became instantly famous. Years later, Lindbergh testified that partway through his epic journey he was visited by a host of odd, vaporous beings who suddenly appeared in his small cockpit. They spoke with him, demonstrating a sophisticated understanding of navigation and airplane technology. Lindbergh’s spirits were buoyed. His concentration, which had been flagging, revived. He was grateful for their unexpected support. I foresee a comparable kind of assistance becoming available to you sometime soon, Aquarius. Don’t waste any time being skeptical about it; just welcome it.

four centuries ago, a Piscean samurai named Honda Tadakatsu became a leading general in the Japanese army. In the course of his military career, he fought in more than a hundred battles. Yet he never endured a major wound and was never beaten by another samurai. I propose we make him your inspirational role model for the coming weeks. As you navigate your way through interesting challenges, I believe that like him, you’ll lead a charmed life. No wounds. No traumas. Just a whole lot of educational adventures.

We gathered at the old 1890’s Centerville Schoolhouse to honor our Camp fire heroes, the four local guys who stayed and fought the fire all night long in Butte Creek Canyon and saved our neighborhood. They all grew up in the neighborhood they saved and are now dubbed the Helltown Hotshots. I still think of these guys fondly, as the little kids they once were, running around in my field at the annual Easter egg hunts. I also think of them as the bigger kids they became, blaring around too fast on their motorcycles, raising dust on the road, me running after them yelling and shaking my fists. I spoke with one of them, Johnny, the horrific night of the fire, Thursday November 8th. A few hours earlier, my wife and I had evacuated our place, driving through a peaceful Canyon, with no fire visible, except up on the Paradise ridge. Johnny yelled into the phone, “The whole Canyon is on fire!” He was standing high above the canyon floor, at the top of Center Gap Road, the steep, rutted dirt road that dives into upper Butte Creek Canyon from the Forest Ranch side, opposite the Paradise ridge. “It can’t be,” I said, “we were just there!” “It looks like it’s all around the Centerville Schoolhouse and into

Helltown!” He groaned and said, “Twenty-foot flames are coming up towards us!” “You better turn back. Get out of there!” I said. He didn’t. He and Jim and Danny four-wheeled it down that road into the Canyon, where they found Jack, who has some fire-fighting experience. Jack gave direction. They first ran a fire line as best they could, with shovels, around the Centerville Schoolhouse. Johnny got a bulldozer and drove through the fire, scraping a fire break, saving the iconic Schoolhouse. They took off from there, and fought through the night, forming a ring around the Helltown area, saving the neighborhood of a few dozen homes. At the celebration of the Hotshots, the Centerville Schoolhouse was packed. The Schoolhouse is the place where over the years, Canyon people gather for potlucks, picnics, fairs, Christmas shows for the kids. We applauded the Hotshots, thanked them, and humbly acknowledged our fortune amidst the tragedies of the Camp fire and the not so fortunate. Danny spoke to us first. He pointed around the inside of the Centerville Schoolhouse, and said, “This is where I first met Santa Claus.”
