“They say there is a blessing behind every challenge and I feel like my teenage experience with the NEWS family and living at the NEWS Shelter was my blessing. Although in the beginning it felt like a bitter situation, it taught me about compassion. It wasn’t easy having to deal with domestic violence in my home. There were days where I felt afraid. However, fast forward 10 years later and NEWS became my family again. I now work for NEWS as an Advocate. Now I strive to give back to our clients with compassion.”

Here’s to one of the most special places on earth, where hardworking families and wanderlust travelers raise their glasses together at one table. Here’s to rolling hillsides and endless hiking and biking trails, miles of vineyards punctuated by five charming towns, and the legendary spirit of collaboration that inspires us all to live the good life. And, of course, let’s not forget our roots — all those layers of sand, soil, and silt that create the perfect growing conditions for winemakers to produce vintages desired around the world. In this land we call home — where farmers inspire culinary artists, and makers and vintners hone their crafts — let’s raise a toast.

Here’s to the Napa Valley we share, savor and rediscover each day.

“I’m proud to raise my glass with family, friends, neighbors and guests as we celebrate another harvest together in the Napa Valley. Cheers, The Good Life!” Linsey Gallagher | President & CEO, Visit Napa Valley

NEWS

Turns 40

N

By Kathleen Reynolds

NEWS is a nonprofit devoted to providing safety, hope, healing and empowerment for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse. This year, NEWS celebrates its 40th Anniversary. While their dedication hasn’t changed, other aspects of the nonprofit have evolved.

NEWS had a grassroots beginning in 1981 with local Napa residents taking women and children escaping abusive relationships into their own homes for protection. The founders realized this was not a longterm solution and began Napa Emergency Women’s Services (NEWS). After 35 years, however, the agency changed its name to NEWS Domestic Violence and Sexual abuse Services to reflect their support of a diverse community that not only includes women and children but also men and LGBTQ+. Its first operating budget was about $120,000 and it had seven full and part time staff. Today, it has an operating budget of $3 million and Tracy leads a staff of 29, plus volunteers. Sandra Re Sims is in her third term as president of the Board. She explains why NEWS is important to the community and to her personally. “I was lucky enough to have family and friends to support me, mentally and financially,” says Sandra, who has served on the Board since 2015. “The thought that someone felt trapped

because of they were alone simply breaks my heart. Help gives you strength and empowers your survival. Living in fear, beats you down more and more every day. Your children grow up thinking that lifestyle is normal. The stories of our NEWS survivors keep me believing in our mission and fighting for people.” NEWS assists approximately 1500 individuals each year. Their team runs a shelter for women and children and another for men. They house three to four families a month and provide rental assistance to many more. In 2020-21 fiscal year, the NEWS housing team helped 44 families find new housing. “NEWS helps clients recover their dignity and power over their own lives,” explains Sandra. “It gives them strength to basically start again. We help with housing, expenses, counseling, family support and educating people of the services available to help them become self-sufficient. We do outreach to the schools, teaching prevention and awareness. We tell young people signs to be aware of in relationships. We build their self-esteem to help them realize their value. Most of all we provide safety and compassion.” Danis Kreimeier has been involved with NEWS since 2006 and serves as vice president of the Board. “During the Covid lock down, the incidents of domestic violence increased. The stress on families and relationships were intensified. Imagine being in lock down with you


“Everyone deserves safety regardless of their situation or economic status.” ~Danis Kreimeier

abuser. The pandemic magnified the importance of NEWS services.” “Everyone deserves safety regardless of their situation or economic status. NEWS provides many resources and program for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, counseling, help with the legal system, finding safe housing, and education. From crisis intervention, prevention and education, housing and shelter services, survivors and their families are never alone to navigate the many challenges they may face.” Tracy Lamb, Executive Director of NEWS Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse Services, states that not a day goes by without a call from someone needing help. “Immediate safety is our first priority,” says Tracy. “We may provide shelter, perhaps at an emergency hotel, but we can also help with protective orders. We discuss options with the person so they can decide what is the best thing for them to be safe.”

“What’s most important to understand is that domestic violence and sexual abuse affects all of us,” she continues. “It is pervasive in our community. What we do is so much more than shelter, it’s far-reaching. Almost everyone has been connected in some way or another to family, neighbors, friends or co-workers who have experienced it.” “When you consider how much money is spent in the community for the systems affected by it—the court system, hospitals, mental health services, drug and alcohol help. We need to focus on intergenerational prevention by involving youth in awareness.”

Sandra Re Sims President

Tracy adds, “We have to create a cultural change to stop abuse from happening. We must stop thinking that victims have a weakness or that it can’t happen to them or to those with means. It crosses all socio-economic backgrounds. So often people abusing others came from abusive homes themselves. We don’t want to demonize that person. They need help.” “We ask questions to determine the best course for each individual. Is staying in the situation helping or enabling? What is the cost? Is it your safety? Your child’s? Each person has to weigh the decision for their own lives.”

Danis Kreimeier Vice President October 2021

Tracy Lamb Executive Director napavalleymarketplace.com

“We’re often asked why the victim doesn’t just leave the abuser and we explain you have to put yourself in their shoes,” says Tracy. “They hope for change and have to believe that things will get better.” NEWS relies on donations and grants. Grants are necessary but can be frustrating because they dictate what services can be offered. Tracy wishes they had the freedom to say what is needed and provide it. “We are grateful to grants and the services they allow us to provide,” says Tracy. “We wish we could have the independence to listen to survivors and do more prevention.” Since COVID essentially eliminated all in-person fundraising for over a year, NEWS postponed an in-person event to celebrate their impact on the community and recognize 40 heroes over the years. They are hoping to raise $10,000 with their “$40 for 40 years” campaign, asking donors to contribute a factor of $40 for their anniversary. As Danis Kreimeier says, “NEWS is there for you, please be there for NEWS and donate to keep this important work going. $40 for 40 years.”

Tracy Lamb wants to stress that people do not need to be in a horrible crisis to call NEWS.

“Call if you’re struggling in a relationship or it’s not working. Call before there’s an immediate crisis.” ~ Tracy Lamb

“It’s confidential and no decision must be made immediately.The first step can be the most important. We often hear callers say, ‘I wish I hadn’t waited five years to pick up the phone.’ We’ll give you choices and options. It’s all about empowerment.”

Culinary 2 Careers By Craig Smith

“Immersing students in the local restaurant culture would give them the opportunity to see if they want to continue in the industry.” ~ Angela Higdon

John McNamara, a senior at Vintage High School, has been passionate about food for as long as he can remember. “I tried to get a job at a restaurant when I was in the tenth grade, but I couldn’t even get an interview. People said I was too young and didn’t have any experience.” That left him a bit discouraged, but then, “Angela came by and told us about the culinary program.” “Angela” is Angela Higdon from the Napa County Office of Education, who is a Coordinator for College and Career Readiness and works with all Career Technical Education (CTE) pathways in Napa County, to provide work-based learning experiences for students. CTE programs offer a wider variety of options including engineering, manufacturing and culinary to appeal to all students, college and noncollege bound alike. Last year, the Downtown Napa Association (DNA) approached Higdon about

forming a partnership that would put students to work in downtown restaurants. “Immersing students in the local restaurant culture would give them the opportunity to see if they want to continue in the industry,” said Allison Hallum. She’s the managing partner for her families three Napa restaurants: Eiko’s, Eiko’s at the Oxbow and Napa Noodles, and is also the president of the Downtown Napa Association. “Plus, we love keeping Napa kids in Napa.” Higdon and Gillie Miller, Director of the College and Career Readiness Department with NCOE, agreed, and the Culinary 2 Careers program was launched. “Programs like Culinary 2 Careers make the practical connection between what students learn in high school and the essential requirements of the work world,” said Miller. “When students make that connection, they are more confident when obtaining employment.” Eight students signed up for the initial program. Each

interviewed at three locations with six different restaurants and were then matched with ones that seemed like the best fit for both. “This new program required students to participate in ‘soft skills’ training prior to beginning work at the restaurants.” The training included resume preparation and interview skills along with work ethic, time management, teamwork, customer service and communication in the workplace. Prior to getting into education, Higdon worked in corporate Human Resources and as a Recruiter, a background that lent itself perfectly to her helping high school students develop work readiness skills. “Preparation is key to success in CTE. Students must understand the universal work-readiness skills in addition to specific job training in order to stand out as a great employee,” said Higdon.

Derek McClintick, a twelveyear veteran of the hospitality industry, runs Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management at Vintage High School, part of Career Tech Education, a twoyear nationally-based program designed to prepare students for a career in hospitality. “It’s a really good initial look at life in the kitchen. In their first year, students learn entry level knife skills, how to follow a recipe, accurate measuring, and different aspects of cooking, such as roasting, pan frying and sauteing. They finish the first year with a California Food Handlers card.” The second year of the program focuses on advanced culinary skills, introduction to the hospitality industry, as well as, business and entrepreneurship. “The second year, students are actually dually enrolled at Vintage High and Napa Valley College.” Higdon works directly with CTE students as part of that curriculum.

John McNamara

“We all work in community with each other,” said Anette Madsen, co-owner with her brother, Brent, of Anette’s Chocolates. She’s on the board of the Downtown Napa Association, and is one of the employers that hired a student. “Young people just need guidance to help them advance in the work environment.” Madsen, who earlier in her life taught high school, is always training. “We teach employees all about chocolate, coffee and ice cream, but also about posture, language and interaction with people. Anette’s hired Katelyn Hernandez as part of the program. Before the forty-hour program was complete, they offered Hernandez a permanent position working weekends. “I looked forward to working at Annette’s for the experience and to build my resume,” said Hernandez. “Plus, I love sugar,”

currently in the second year of the program at Vintage High School. She plans on going to college and wants to become a pastry chef. “This has helped me get my foot in the door. I’m thankful for the program, and really love my job.”

“The program is a great foundation to teach a new generation of people who want to work in the kitchen and let them see how kitchens actually work,” said Krzyztof Pawlik, the General Manager at AVOW. He hired both McNamara and Caroline Simpkins from the Vintage High program. “School is great, but this is the real world. We’re glad that John (McNamara) came to us knowing how to handle knives, but time management doesn’t come easy. That’s something we can teach.” Pawlik likes the Vintage program a lot. “It’s a great way for restaurants to build community. These are local students entering one of the most challenging industries, and that’s

As for McNamara? He feels extremely fortunate. “To be working in a high-end restaurant without any experience? No way I would have gotten in if it hadn’t been for the program.” And about those dreams of being a chef: “Oh, I’m absolutely going for it. I’m filling out applications for the CIA now.”

FREE ADMISSION We’ll have 150 pre-1976 cars at Show & Shine, most of them from here in the valley. By Craig Smith

Napa Show SUNDAY, OCTOBER 24

As disappointing as all the event cancellations have been for people who would normally attend, it’s been just as discouraging to the folks who produce them. “People understood why we had to cancel Main Street Reunion this year,” said Napa Valley Cruisers club president Mike Phillips, “but it’s still been disappointing. Not just to people who attend the show, but to our club members. It’s the only time

they see some car owners and their cars. The show is always a chance to interact with people in the valley who aren’t in the Cruisers.” For Phillips and the rest of the Cruisers, not having some kind of Napa car show is unacceptable. “Events were still off the table at the beginning of the year, when we normally start planning the car show, but in June, when we got the green flag from the state and county, we decided to hold our annual Show & Shine event.”


Show & Shine’s are traditionally smaller than car shows and more informal, but that has its advantages as well. “We’ll have 150 pre-1976 cars at Show & Shine, most of them from here in the valley.” That’s compared to the 400 cars that usually participate in Main Street Reunion. Some people think 150 is just the right number. “At the Show & Shine, you have a chance to really look at everything and can talk to the owners in more detail than you might otherwise. It’s a lot more informal.”

Still, even an informal show has to have the essential elements. A DJ will keep your favorite car tunes going all day, and there will plenty of food and drink available for purchase. Two awards will be given – The Best of Show as judged by Napa Valley Marketplace Magazine, a big supporter of the event, and Napa’s Best, as chosen by the Cruisers. “In Main Street Reunion, we go over cars with a fine toothcomb to determine the show winners. The cars that we choose at Show & Shine will be the best out there, but in keeping with the vibe, judging will be less formal.”

& Shine 10 AM TO 3 PM

Probably no one has had a better view of the cars than Brad Parsons, a member of the Cruisers who has been photographing both Main Street Reunion and Show & Shine for years. “I get to see every car and truck that enters the gate, and every one of them has a story to tell. People connect with cars for different reasons, whether you like the color, it was the car you learned to drive in, or your parents had that car the first time they took you to Disneyland. You relive those memories and it puts a smile on your face.” Most years, Parsons attends various car shows. “Every car show is different and you can see something new every time. I admire the work and dedication that goes into each and every vehicle.” He also recommends, if you see a car that you really like, you do more than just look. “Next time you attend a car show and make a connection with that special vehicle, talk to the owner. You just might make a bigger connection to something in your past that you can pass on to your children, maybe give them a memory that they will pass on.” The cost to enter a car in the Napa Show & Shine is $20. The cost to spend the whole day looking at the cars, talking to the car owners and everybody else you’ll run into, is free. Thanks for the show go to the Napa Valley Cruisers, Napa Valley Marketplace Magazine, Coors Light, Molson Ale, Lagunitas and the Downtown Napa Association.

“If life is a bowl of cherries, what am I doing in the pits?” ~ Erma Louise Bombeck

A

After a wildly popular production of “Disney’s The Little Mermaid,” the second show of the Lucky Penny Productions 202122 season will be “Erma Bombeck: At Wit’s End,” opening October 15 and running for three weekends. Erma Louise Bombeck was an American humorist who achieved fame for her syndicated newspaper humor column about suburban home life from 1965 to 1996. Between 1965 and April 17, 1996 – five days before her death – Bombeck wrote over 4,000 newspaper columns, using broad and sometimes eloquent humor, chronicling the ordinary life of a Midwestern suburban housewife. By the 1970s, her columns were read semi-weekly by 30 million readers of the 900 newspapers in the U.S. and Canada. She also published 15 books, most of which became bestsellers. “Erma Bombeck: At Wit’s End” is a one-woman, one-act play offering a look at one of our country’s most beloved voices, who captured the frustrations of her generation by asking, “If life is a bowl of cherries, what am I doing in the pits?” Discover the story behind America’s beloved humorist who championed women’s lives with wit that sprang from the most unexpected place of all – the truth.

Following that show, Lucky Penny presents “A Napa Valley Christmas Carol,” a version of the Dickens classic set in the present and steeped in Napa’s high stakes wine business. Alexander Yuge is a financial success with his company Yuge Wine Brands, but his heartless attitude earns him few friends. Even his loyal nephew Joe Patchett wonders what’s gone wrong. But a familiar yet mysterious group of Christmas Eve visitors help Yuge remember what really matters. This new holiday show for the whole family is being written by Lucky Penny co-founder Barry Martin, author of “The Tasting Room,” with original music and lyrics by Rob Broadhurst. In January 2022 the second part of the season begins with “Disney’s High School Musical,” a project of Lucky Penny’s Napa Academy of Performing Arts, followed by “The Marvelous Wonderettes,” “The How and the Why,” and “Bright Star.” Tickets for all performances are available at luckypennynapa.com or by calling 707-266-6305. Current public health protocols require proof of vaccination or recent negative test, and masks must be worn indoors at all times. These measure will be in place as long as necessary for the safety of patrons, volunteers, and performers. Questions can be sent to info@luckypennynapa.com

money sense

Juggling Competing Financial Goals College tuition, retirement saving and more — your financial goals can sometimes seem overwhelming. This five-step process from Bank of America can help you pursue them all. Even in your peak earning years, it may not seem like there is enough money coming in to cover your current expenses and save for future needs. How do you juggle all of these competing claims for your financial attention? “It is essential to take a step back and consider all of your goals and values,” says Valerie Galinskaya, a managing director at the Merrill Center for Family Wealth™. She suggests the following five-step process. Put your values and goals down on paper Sit down with your family and make a list of what is most important to you. “Your advisor can then help you craft a few short value statements that you can use to guide your family’s financial decisions,” says Galinskaya. Next, make a list of your goals. Galinskaya recalls one couple who identified raising their children to be independent and resourceful as a core value. Concerned that their children would not be motivated to work hard if they had everything handed to them, they sat down with their children and talked about how much they would be expected to contribute to their college tuition every year. Sort your list Prioritize your goals into essential, important and aspirational buckets. Essential goals absolutely cannot be put off, such as saving for retirement. Important goals are less critical but represent core values such as education or leaving a legacy.

Anything that is merely nice to have is aspirational and should be lowest among your priorities. Get family members on the same page Even couples and families with similar goals can differ when it comes to priorities, notes Matthew Wesley, also a managing director at the Merrill Center for Family Wealth™. To narrow down your list, Wesley suggests a technique he calls “First to Five.” A goal is proposed and discussed and then each family member votes by raising zero to five fingers, representing their level of support. “The process continues until every goal on the list gets at least three fingers from each person,” says Wesley. “That way, you are not just getting compromise; you are also building consensus.” Build your investments around your priorities Work with your advisor to put investment strategies in place to help you pursue your goals. Start with the essential goals, says Galinskaya. Once you have a solid strategy for funding those, you can create strategies for your important goals and plan for your aspirational goals. For a goal requiring near-term funding, you will want to keep the money in a safe, liquid account such as a CD or money market account, says Galinskaya. For goals more than five years away, you may consider adding higher risk/higher reward assets to your portfolio, or opening a 529

education savings account if that is one of your priorities. For goals 10 years out or longer, you can afford to invest more aggressively because your investments should have time to rebound from any market dips. Reconsider your plan periodically Life changes or unforeseen economic events may necessitate adding or subtracting goals or changing their timelines, says Galinskaya. Your advisor can help you understand the potential impact of significant decisions across all of your goals. “Along the way, you may likely have to make tradeoffs,” says Galinskaya. “But by using this five-step process, you will be armed with the knowledge you need to help you prioritize your goals and align your assets toward pursuing them.”

The Art History COLORING BOOK Friendly, Fun and Educational By Evy Warshawski

One of the highlights of visiting world class cities is the pleasure of spending hours in museums that house original works of art. These days, however, hopping on a plane to view da Vinci’s Mona Lisa in Paris, Munch’s The Scream in Oslo or even Duchamp’s Fountain in Philadelphia may be fraught with trepidations about staying healthy and safe. No worries! Coloring Concepts, Inc. (CCI), a Napa-based company founded in 1980, is bringing these visual, sculptural and photographic icons into your very own living room – or wherever you choose to enjoy the art of coloring. The sumptuous 320-page The Art History Coloring Book, fresh off the press, is the newest addition to the company’s growing library of educational and science-based coloring books. “This book acts as an entryway to the world of art history, as an accessible review or study tool and as a reimagined means of interacting with some of the greatest artistic works of all time,” states writer Gabriella Davids in the book’s introduction. CCI‘s mantra - “color the land of facts” – is based on a style of kinesthetic learning. Visualize something that has no color, choose and use a color that has meaning to you, and on completion, you’ve just absorbed what you colored! The genesis of CCI occurred in a most serendipitous manner.

October 2021

In l970, the late Dr. Lawrence McClellan Elson, an Assistant Professor of Anatomy, was preparing a lecture for a class of medical students at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. In the teaching amphitheater, Elson readied his talk by making drawings on five chalkboards. He decided to use multiple colors of chalk to represent arteries (red), veins (blue), nerves (yellow), bones (white) and muscles (brown). The outlines of these structures were drawn with white chalk and would be colored over during the lecture. At the conclusion of the class, Elson’s lab coat was layered with a chalky abstract of mixed colors. A colleague noted that it was too bad that the students could not have experienced the “chalking” themselves as part of the learning experience. Fast forward seven years when Elson and one of his former students, illustrator Wynn Kapit, created The Anatomy Coloring Book, a college-level coloring book in the natural sciences. Published by HarperCollins in 1982, the book is a consistent best-seller, has been updated four times and is now available in 13 different languages! In 2016, Elson’s wife Ellyn Elson became a partner in CCI, and together decided to bring more offerings to their


catalogue. CCI has since published coloring books on: the human brain; biology and marine biology; botany; zoology; human evolution; aquatic birds; and a forthcoming book on herpetology (reptiles and amphibians). Gabriella Davids had been familiar with CCI’s books and contacted the Elson’s about writing an art history coloring book. She earned her MA in English and had been teaching English, literature and advanced placement art history classes for ten years in Central Florida. Davids felt strongly that kinesthetic and visual learning would be beneficial for her students. It takes a small village and talented team of experts to create a CCI coloring book, and bringing The Art History Coloring Book to life was no exception: one writer; two editors; one art director six illustrators; and a publisher/ distributor. It was truly worth the effort. There’s art, heart and smart in this remarkable book.

With The Art History Coloring Book in hand, you can now bring the remarkable world of art and history into your life without ever leaving home. While the book was originally conceived for art history majors, entry-level art students in higher education and arts lovers everywhere, kids can try their hand as well and create their own colorful museum.

Ellyn Elson

Enjoy! All of the books in CCI’s library may be ordered through Amazon or any bookstore. For additional information, visit ColoringConcepts.com.

A collection of 314 paintings, sculptures, architecture and photography works are replicated in line drawings arranged chronologically and geographically on 81/2 x 11-sized pages. Broken down into seven sections, the historical eras cover a time period from prehistory to modern art representing a variety of cultures with a focus on art from the Western tradition. Two pages are devoted to each selected artwork. One page includes a line drawing that sits on a white background and begs to be colored! The corresponding page includes a small black and white photo of each work with historical context. “It is my hope, author Davids writes, “that increasing knowledge of the subject will encourage a more global mindset and understanding in readers.” Near the end of the volume a two-sided, three-fold pullout displays each work in its original color. “We want individuals to use their imagination and then compare their coloring to the original work of art,” said Ellyn Elson. “Kinesthetic learners will be able to remember the information if they color the illustration similar to the original artwork, but in reality, they can use any color they want!”

Hometown Halloween

Trick or Treating SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30 ~ 11AM TO 1PM

If you wonder if Napa still puts locals first, all you need to do is look at the yearly community events calendar, and you’ll see that locals are front and center. Nothing exemplifies this better than Hometown Halloween, when Napans are invited to dress their kids (and themselves if they wish) in their Halloween costumes, and come Downtown Napa to Trick or Treat. On Saturday, October 30 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., the sidewalks will be packed with children looking for a sweet handout. Stores that

display black and orange balloons are inviting those kids to come in, where the odds are really good that they will get a treat; not a trick. This will be the seventeenth year of the event. Even if you don’t have children, get yourself a coffee or cool drink, find a good place to sit, and watch the fun. When the event began, it was intended to provide children with a safe place to trick or treat. “There has always been a little concern about the safety of children who were trick or treating. The Downtown Napa Association (DNA)

thought it would be a great idea to offer a safe place to go, and the event was born. It’s been big since the beginning,” said Bill LaLiberte, past-president of the DNA. “And, it’s free,” he added with a laugh. Diane Bishofberger, Bank of Marin Senior Relationship Manager for the Napa area, sat on the DNA board that considered adding the event. She is a diehard Disney fan and volunteered to lead the charge, and make sure that the day was one that children would love (and that Mickey would be proud of!)


Thanks to the Bank of Marin staff, characters from Disney and other movies that conjour up the Halloween spirit, have shown up over the years downtown for photos. This year, trick or treaters may get the chance to pose with Woody from Toy Story. They could find a couple of photogenic characters from Harry Potter there as well. Backdrops will set the stage to make those pictures really pop. What a perfect Halloween!

None of this would be possible without the local businesses, who buy candy by the ton just for this event. We count on support from our sponsors, especially Bank of Marin, whose staff spends countless hours making sure this event is one that kids will remember all year. And thank you to the Napa Valley Marketplace Magazine, who has supported this and all local Downtown Napa events from the beginning. And a big shout out to the residents of Napa who dress up in costume and join in the fun to make this a fun, frightening and ghoulish day.

“People are so creative with their costumes, and the kids are just delightful. Some of the youngsters who trick or treated in the initial years now have children of their own. It is a community, family fun, fall afternoon,” said Anette Madsen, co-owner of Anette’s Chocolates, who has participated from the beginning.

Happy Halloween to you all!
