MARTINI WINS AT CALIFORNIA STATE FAIR THREE YEARS IN A ROW
OCTOBER 16-18 COLUSA CASINO CHILI COOK-OFF
or the third year in a row Williams native Ashleigh Martini brought home another win from the California State Fair’s Best of Show-Horse Show, after competing in the Senior Trail Class. “It feels really good to hold onto a title like that,” shared Martini. Martini first began taking riding lessons when she was eight years old, after her mother asked her if she was interested in horses. They had purchased her first horse by Martini’s ninth birthday. Over the years she has accomplished many things, some bigger than others, one of which is winning the Senior Trail Class three years in a row. A Williams 4-H Club member for 10 years, Martini has focused on several projects including horse, miniature horse, photography and scrapbooking. Martini is currently attending Yuba Community College to prep for either an engineering or mathematics major, but plans to continue showing as often as she can. “I would also like to become a certified judge, so I can judge horseshows in the future,” she said. She likes to encourage kids who may be interested in horses to take a few riding lessons and join a local 4-H

group, but she also warns that it’s not all about the ridinghorses are a lot of work. “There is so much to learn,” she explained “It’s important to learn all you can before making a decision on whether or not you are serious about getting into horses. If you are dedicated, it can be very rewarding.” What has it been like for Ashleigh? “Horses have brought a lot of good into my life,” Ashleigh said “…happiness, love, fun, knowledge, patience.” She
also went on to describe how she had to learn to deal with responsibility, commitment and how to lose with dignity. “Every day is a learning experience, every time my horse and I can improve on even the easiest maneuver, I look at it as another accomplishment,” she explained. Martini continues to compete and will be participating in the Sacramento Horseman’s Association Schooling Show on October 4.
In today’s economy the phrase budget cuts, can send a shiver down the spine of many educators. When it comes to schools and their programs, it seems that music is one of the first programs that are cut. In spite of that fact a new musical experience is sweeping area schools and their music departments. Students and teachers are treated to an experience of a lifetime, an opportunity to see firsthand the process of putting on a major performance. The Legends of Music Concert Series is a three day program that provides a unique opportunity for music, theater and production students to get a glimpse into all the aspects of the music industry; From developing a program, marketing, writing full orchestration, preparation of the concert, performing and all the behind the scene action that it takes to make the concert happen. It’s a multi-faceted program the blends an educational experience for both students and teachers, fundraising opportunity for local music programs, and an entertainment experience that puts a full, 32 piece orchestra together with some of the most talented musicians of our time. ....................Continued on Page 2

LEGENDS COMES TO COLUSA Continued The program and series was developed by Dr. Keller Coker of Western Oregon University and Don Kennedy, formerly the Director of Marketing for Chinook Winds Casino Resort in Lincoln City, Oregon. Kennedy is currently the Director of Marketing for the Colusa Casino Resort. “My hope is that it spreads with true musical legends giving back to their communities, that colleges, high schools and middle schools all work together to make music a successful program and that we provide our kids with lots of options growing up to be well rounded people,” said Kennedy. The three day program kicks off with a Wednesday visit to area schools by members of the production to talk to students and teachers about their various roles in the LMCS. Thursday the students and teachers would be on site for a late afternoon production preview including room and seating preparation, sound, lighting, a full rehearsal, question and answer session and a meet and greet with the Orchestra Conductor and the guest artist and finally they will end the day as audience members for the performance. Both Thursday and Friday’s concert performances will be on sale to the public and the music departments will be selling blocks of tickets with half of the proceeds going to their respective programs. The featured orchestra is the American Metropole Orchestra, which is based on the famous European Metropole Orchestra of the Netherlands. Dr. Coker, an accomplished performer and composer, will be the conductor. Some very lucky, specially selected area music students will shadow orchestra
members, production staff and singers of the series. They will even have the opportunity to be selected to work on and perform in future concerts. The guest artists are legendary in the music world. Sonny Turner is the lead singer of The Platters who have old time favorites such as: Only You, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes, The Great Pretender, Red Sails in the Sunset and dozens more. The Grand Lady of Country Music, Lynn Anderson whose timeless hit I Never Promised You a Rose Garden is just one of dozens of gold records. Paul Williams, songwriter, who has won an Oscar, Golden Globes, Grammy’s and numerous other awards. Some of his songs include: Evergreen, We’ve Only Just Begun, Rainy Days and Mondays, the theme to the TV show the Love Boat and the muppet’s Rainbow Connection. The program is the second of its kind. The first was on the central Oregon Coast in a region similar in size to Colusa County, where 300 students and teachers participated in the series. For this series, half of the orchestra will be from Yuba, Sutter and Colusa Counties including Mike Phenicie as well as one student musician from Colusa High School. As each concert approaches, more local students will join the orchestra and singers. In addition, a local middle school audio-visual class is working on a project to provide a six to seven minute video montage of Lynn Anderson for her concert. The concerts will be October 22 and 23 at 8 p.m. Ticket prices are $35 preferred seating and $25 reserved. For more information about the series you may visit www. colusacasino.com.

ART SHOW AND SHARE A SUCCESS STAFF REPORT Creative Looks in Maxwell played host to the Colusa Regional Medical Center Art Show and Share September 19, with over 120 pieces of art, it was a resounding success. Kyla Lees, 16, of Williams was the youngest artist whose work was displayed. Her photography showed life through her eyes with experience beyond her years. The Art Show and Share was her first foray into the art world. “It’s more than I thought it would be,” shared Lees of her experience. Lees and her family are recent transplants to Colusa County by way of San Antonio, Texas. At the tender age of nine, while on a family trip to Niagara Falls, Lees took some of her very first photos. “Seeing the beauty you could capture with something so small-the highlights and lowlights always fascinate me,” she explained. Also at the event was a Yuba City musical group the Saxsations. With a mixture of 500 pieces to their repertoire, they

have songs for every occasion. The tranquil setting of the Creative Looks’ gardens, the music and artwork, it made for a pleasant event for all who attended. The event is not a fundraiser but rather a way to bring art into the community both at the show and later when it is displayed at Colusa Regional Medical Center, many are also available for purchase. Being displayed at CRMC is a great way for budding artists to gain exposure for their works. Those artists include: Susan
Alvarez, Alandra Arambula, Jean Boyes, Deanna Day, Annie Dirks-LaGrande, Rodrigo Duran, Josh Edwards, David Fermin, Margery Fuson, Sue Graue, Cheryl Hennessy, Alice Kaeslin, Patricia Kalfsbeek, Kyla Lees, Bonnie Lee Martin, Mary Ann Nation, Melissa Oden, Tracy Pitts, Kevin Roddy, Jenna Smead, Sue Sutton, Augusta Bell Tremayne, Cheryle A.

A beautiful Bible-shaped cake inscribed with the words “Great is Thy Faithfulness” reflected the celebratory mood of the congregation. The event marked the exact date in 1879 when five faithful pioneers organized the first charter. Since then, the church’s colorful history has been marked by continuous renovations and remodeling, small group Bible studies, a prayer chain and annual events such as the Almond Blossom Tea, the Quilter’s Raffle, rummage sales, church picnic/campout and Men’s Breakfast. Various community service and outreach activities have been conducted through the decades, including food baskets, canned food drives, vouchers for gas and groceries, and the support of numerous missionaries around the world. In 1925, voluntary tithing replaced the subscription method of financing, a practice in faith that continues today. A commitment of setting 10 percent of the annual

WHAT DOESN’T KILL US MAKES US STRONGER
ife has a way of bringing you up, then tries to pull you back down. A few weeks ago my decision to resign the presidency of the Colusa County Chamber of Commerce was made because I wanted to fulfill my dreams to become the person I wanted to be. While recovering from having my wisdom teeth extracted, I had some time to reflect on my life over the past few years and realized that I really have accomplished a lot for a person my age, yet, I wanted more. Not material successes, but relationships of friends and family. With the growth of my business, my new home and life in general, it was time to move on and pass the torch. Although my decision was publicly scrutinized with the obvious aim to tear down my reputation of reliability and devotion to community service, I remain standing on my feet. There were times I thought of giving up to run away from it all, but I knew better. I have nothing to hide, but I could not have guessed the number of people who believe in me and voiced their
support, who recognized the lose four people who thought critical ink as nothing more there was no more love and than an attempt, under the their luck had run out.

bad now, was it?.” We are all human, and I think we get so caught up in our computers, iPhones and our personal schedules that we often forget the human element. We all make mistakes, and we all have those bad days, but is it really worth “sticking” it to a person forever? If you have ever held a grudge against anyone or make it your purpose to get back at someone, try sitting down and writing a list of the factual things the person did to you. Then write a list of things you have done in return. I’ll bet the list won’t balance. So, pick up that phone, or grab that iPhone and email that person to say you are sorry, and make up over a nice cup of coffee or lunch. Over the past few weeks I have learned that love is stronger than hate. My mother has always preached it, but I never listened. However, when you get to a moment in life when it feels as if everyone is out to get you, and you realize people are there to support you, the meaning of the lesson
becomes a reality. Now that I have moved on and am writing a new chapter in my life, I will never let one of my dreams fade, because dreams don’t work without action, and no one can stop me but me. As I continue my community service as a director of the Colusa County Chamber of Commerce, I am happy to support the merging of the Chamber with the Colusa County Economic Development Council and the Colusa County Business and Visitors Center as progress for the community and to the benefit of all who live and work here.

BIBLICAL MUSEUM Continued Pottery includes terra-cotta dipping juglets and other household items from around the time of Job. The north wall of the museum displays items from the Iron Age (1,250 B.C. to 587 B.C.), or the time of Israel’s monarchy and King David, to the Babylonian captivity in 587 B.C. Guests will see on display un-translated cuneiform tablets, made of mud and then fired to make them hard, which were an early method of contracts and covenants,. Also of note are clay containers used for various things such as holding oil, and several have been found with traces of opium inside. A priest of that time would use opium in a ceremony, or a woman in labor might take opium for the pain. Other relics include alabaster jars from Egypt, cooking pots, juglets, everyday ware, tableware, pitchers, bowls, tablets, storage jars, wooden
Egyptian mummy mask, scarab beetles used to make the seal impressions of different pharaohs, mantle deities, a pilgrim’s flask from Judea used to carry wine pulp to mix with water, an incantation bowl from Lydia used by priests to read the future, and more. “Archaeology helps us understand the culture and lifestyle of people from biblical periods,” Morgan says. “Most of the information you read from biblical commentaries about everyday life and culture in biblical times is available because of the works of archaeologists.” The museum’s east wall has some items from the late Iron Age, like a fruit bowl, but also artifacts from Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine eras. Even in biblical times there were makeup applicators, perfume bottles, mending needles, fish needles and surgical tools. There are also oil containers from Petra, blown
glass from Phoenicia, Roman nails and spear points, and a solemn child’s burial urn from Carthage, where infanticide was rampant. For those who don’t have their Bible history down pat, do not worry. There are 2-feet by 10-feet parchment timelines along each wall to show visitors the chronology of Bible history. The timeline dates key biblical periods and relates biblical characters and events with those periods. The timeline also reveals the books of the Bible that emerged from those periods. Underneath the timeline are contemporary objects along with a description of each and a Bible verse to give it context. “Most of us appreciate visual enforcements for what we are taught or read about,” Morgan says. “By seeing these objects in their context, the Bible stories come alive and are more easily understood.” In the south corner of the museum is the Tall el-Hamman corner, where Morgan has participated in an archaeological dig for the past four years. The site in Jordan is believed to be the city of
Sodom as written in Genesis. The corner will be a 3-D area depicting the actual square Morgan is excavating in Jordan. It will display tools used in archaeology and will show the meter of ash found at the site, which is crucial evidence since the Bible declared Sodom was destroyed by brimstone and fire. Morgan plans to return for a fifth year of excavation in January. “This season we will be focusing on the well-preserved Early Bronze city which was the Sodom of Genesis 10 listed in the Table of Nations after the Great Flood,” Morgan says of the upcoming dig in Jordan. Seven Woodlanders are set to go on the dig in January, and all are welcome to participate. Woodland United Fellowship’s Upcoming Community Events: Archaeology Kids’ Club: Meets every other Friday from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. to learn how archaeology and the Bible work together. Games are played as well as excavation of a mock square. Ongoing Greek and Hebrew classes: Open to the public
for a small fee. Basic New Testament Greek meets from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. Thursdays. Lecture Series: The museum offers at least two lecture series each year concerning archaeology and biblical history. They are free and open to the public. Dr. John Moore will lecture beginning at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 10 about the Intertestamental Period (the 400 years between the writing of the Old and New Testaments) and continuing in the afternoon at 1:00 p.m. Dig at Tell el-Hammam: Sunday, November 15 at 6:00 p.m. Dr. Steven Collins, the director of the archaeological dig in Jordan, will be sharing the most recent information about the ongoing dig he believes to be the biblical Sodom. All are welcome to attend the lecture and participate in the dig. For more information, visit www.wufonline.org.

CSU CHICO STUDENTS TO HELP LOCAL NONPROFITS WITH MARKETING
pproximately 300 CSU, Chico students will provide marketing assistance to local nonprofit organizations through a joint project with North Valley Community Foundation. Forty-five nonprofit organizations currently working with the Community Foundation are participating in this project. An orientation meeting was held on campus Monday evening, September 21, to match students with representatives from the organizations they have chosen for this project. The September 21 gathering included a training session, “Telling Your Story”, by Laura Cootsona, Director of the Nonprofit Leadership Institute, a program of North Valley Community Foundation. Cootsona presented information to help the students and nonprofit representatives present to maximize the impact of this project. The goal is for these nonprofit organizations to significantly increase their visibility, thus increasing donations, volunteers and public understanding of their services. Cootsona stated,“Nonprofit leaders typically assume that because the work done by their organizations is important, the public understands what
they do and that the public cares. We cannot operate with these assumptions and be successful.” Students involved in this project are all enrolled in Management 300, a Business Communications class that is primarily for students seeking a degree in Business. Professor Bob Sprague is coordinating this effort to provide students with relevant “hands on” experience and nonprofits with expert advice. “Everyone benefits when students and community
resources and needs. The students walk away having truly contributed to our community, and the nonprofits have access to a whole new resource,” Alexa explained. “This project is especially important right now, as nonprofits are facing unprecedented funding difficulties. More than ever, nonprofits need the public to understand the services they provide, and ways in which they as community members can help out” she stated. Small groups of students will be meeting with representatives from the 45 nonprofits involved during Visit on the web the semester, and developing marketing projects and goals www.NVCF.org tailored to meet the needs of each organization. organizations collaborate,” North Valley Community stated Sprague. “The College Foundation serves Butte, of Business students receive a Glenn, Tehama and Colusa real experience of developing with a variety of services.

Recent discoveries in the health benefits (anti-oxidants) have caused much publicity. The juice has been found to be extremely good for you. Its antiaging properties appeal to the masses. It’s easy to grow here, and easy to eat. The fruit stores easily, and the longer it sits, the better it gets. Most of us have only heard of one variety called “Wonderful”. Actually, there are dozens of varieties out there somewhere, and just now are being collected for propagation and further testing. I have

Collect iron filings from under grinders in any metal working shop. Sprinkle them on the ground under your roses, redwoods, camellias, gardenias and especially hydrangeas. (It will often turn hydrangeas blue.) As it rusts, it produces chelated iron, which helps prevent iron deficiency in your plants. Ashes from the barbeque will rid your plants of aphids and provide potash to the soil. Just dust this organic treatment on the plants. A little dish soap, vegetable oil and water in a squirt bottle will take care of many insect problems. Just spray on the plants before they get out of control. Make sure to spray in the early morning or late in the day to avoid burning the leaves. Do not use on ferns. Ferns don’t get many bugs; what look like bugs on the underside of the leaves are often spores, the very special way ferns reproduce.

Struckmeyer is a seasoned traveller and has found inspiration from Rome to the Caribbean. “It’s interesting travelling to different places and sampling their customary food and seeing how they use regional produce, nuts, dairy, etc,” Struckmeyer says. “It’s also interesting to see the different decorating techniques from people all over the world.” Her love affair with cake decorating and sculpting was birthed from a day in the kitchen with her best friend’s mom at age 15.

SEASONAL ALLERGIES? BY: ELIZABETH KALFSBEEK Writer & Contributor
all is here, and with the changing of seasons come allergies and colds for many. With people losing their jobs, and in turn their healthcare,a natural approach to preventive medicine may be right on the money. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” says Michael O’Connor, who has owned and operated Woodland Nutrition for more than 20 years. “Rather than waiting until you get sick, support your body nutritionally.” This can be as simple as stocking your kitchen with wholesome foods for a healthy diet and taking a “good ol’ fashioned multivitamin.” People who prepare their bodies nutritionally and still get sick will heal quicker, and the illness will tend to be more short-lived, than a person who is not nutritionally prepared. Sneezes, itchy eyes, runny noses, sore throat, sinus infections, congestion … sound familiar? There are a multitude of theories for cold and flu season,
including close proximity of kids back in school, visiting relatives during the holidays, dampness creating mold allergies, and so on. “Once a person gets a diagnosis from a doctor, then the choice of treatment is up to the patient, whether it be a more natural approach or a synthetic approach,” O’Connor says. A Western approach to medicine follows a synthetic approach, treating and relieving symptoms right here, right now. A holistic approach treats the cause of the ailment, strengthening the whole body and building resistance. Herbal or natural remedies are sometimes described as “alternative,” but just 100 years ago treatments were all natural. Homeopathic remedies, which may take more time and patience than instant relievers, re-train the body. “It’s very unfortunate we don’t have formal education on a natural approach,” O’Connor says. “Some countries incorporate both a natural approach, as well as a symptomatic approach, to healing, with synthetic medicine and natural remedies side by
side on shelves.” Without this formal knowledge on natural remedies, it is up to people to try out different homeopathic treatments to see what works for them, rather than receiving guidance from a doctor. O’Connor stresses the approach to nutritional support is individual and is different for each person. He encourages people to stop by the shop to chat with him. “Very rarely do you use a natural approach to treat a symptom,” O’Connor says. “(People) have fantastic systems to keep them in balance, and there are wonderful natural tools for individual needs.” Rather than waiting to run to the pharmacy to treat symptoms this season, a holistic approach to maintaining and treating the whole body may mean less illness … and money … altogether. “Whatever you can do to strengthen your body’s systems ahead of time requires fewer treatments down the road,” says O’Connor. Woodland Nutrition is located at 424 First St. For more information, call 6664393.

MUSEO BIBLICO EN WOODLAND BY: ELIZABETH KALFSBEEK Writer & Contributor
Los residentes del condado de Colusa que estén interesados, en un viaje a tierra santa, únicamente necesitan ir no más lejos de la ciudad de Woodland. Individualmente o en grupos, todos pueden llegar al museo Bíblico Arqueológico de Woodland, en el domicilio de Woodland United Fellowship, en el 240 N. West St, y así verán una gran cantidad de artefactos de los tiempos bíblicos. Desde que se inicio un año atrás, el museo bíblico arqueológico de Woodland a tenido más de 800 visitantes. “La mayoría de las personas se sorprenden de el sorprendente despliegue de productos y la calidad de este museo”. Nos dijo el WUF pastor Carl Morgan. “Es algo que no se espera ver en la iglesia, yo creo que somos la única iglesia en el país, con un museo como este.”De los 800 visitantes que tuvimos el ano pasado varios han regresado, con amigos para compartir su entusiasmo, acerca de la gran colección de artefactos originales, de los tiempos bíblicos. El museo también tuvo por toda una semana en el verano la visita de un campamento de niños.”Lo cual sí que es una gran prueba. Casi todas las piezas en el museo tienen una historia Bíblica que la acompaña, dejando en los adultos y en los niños una gran apreciación por las historias Bíblicas.” Ellos llaman a esto el “Tesoro Secreto”, de Woodland, nos dijo Morgan. El museo recibe a grupos de escuelas, iglesias,, grupos de jóvenes y mas, y también está abierto al público cada Viernes, Sábado y Lunes de 1:00 a 5:00p.m. El museo dio sus comienzos en el salón de entrada del Woodland United Fellowship en 2007. Morgan creó un pequeño aparador con unos cantaros y lámparas de excavaciones arqueológicas, en las cual él había participado, y la colección continuo creciendo. “Lo que actualmente se mira son
objetos que provienen del tiempo de Abraham, Moisés, Y David o Jesús, estas historias hacerca de ellos atreves de estos objetos se convierten mas a la vida.” Tiende en remover un poco el ha cercamiento únicamente atreves de las santas escrituras, ya que estos objetos fueron muy grandes en esa vida y algunos son muy mitológicos. Algunos son tan reales como tú o yo”. La pared lado oeste del museo tiene artefactos algunos de la edad Media de Bronce (2,200 B.C. al 1,550 B.C.). Los visitantes encuentran piedras las cuales fueron usadas como armas, y las cuales eran arrojadas con tiras de piel. También verán e sapadas del año 2,000 B.C. y cuchillos usados en sacrificios del tiempo de Abraham. Hay alfarería fechada antes del año 3,000 B.C. y un hacha de pelea que proviene aproximadamente de 500 años antes de los tiempos de Abraham. La alfarería incluye terracota cucharones, y otros utensilios domesticas que provienen del tiempo de Job. La pared Norte de museo ensena artefactos provenientes de la edad de Hierro (1,250 B.C. a 587 B.C.), de los tiempos de la monarquía de Isrrael y el rey David, hasta el cautiverio de Babilonia en 587 B.C. Los visitantes verán unas tablas inscritas sin traducir, hechas de lodo y cosidas al fuego para que se hagan duras, lo cual era un método de contratos y convenios. También notaran los recipientes usados para varias cosas como detener aceite, y muchas fueron encontradas con restos de opio. Los sacerdotes de esos tiempos usaban el opio en las ceremonias, las mujeres en la concesión tomaba opio para el dolor. Otras reliquias incluyen jarras de Egipto, ollas para copinar, alfarería, trastos para el uso diario, sartenes, mesas, ollas para guardar, piezas de madera con forma de personas Egipcias, mascaras de momias, y varias cosas más, como ollas de invocación de Lydia usadas por los sacerdotes para adivinar el futuro.
“La arquologia nos ayuda a entender la cultura y el diferente modo de vivir de diferentes culturas, del tiempo bíblico”. La mayoría de la información, que leemos de comentarios bíblicos acerca de la vida cotidiana y la cultura bíblica está disponible gracias al trabajo de los arqueólogos.” La pared del este del museo tiene algunos artefactos de los últimos tiempos de la edad de Hierro, como sartenes para fruta, pero también artefactos provenientes de Helenística, Romanos, y era Bizantina, hasta en esas eras existía el maquillaje, botellas de perfume, agujas, agujas para redes de pesca y herramientas para cirugías, también hay contenedores de aceite, de la era de petra, ollas de vidrio de la era Phoenicia, unas Romanas y solemnes urnas de sepelios de niños de Carthage, donde el infanticidio era desenfrenado. Para aquellos que no conocen la historia bíblica, no se preocupen. Hay tenemos un pergamino de 2 x 10 pies sin tiempo que en conjunto con cada pared ensañara a los visitantes una cronologías de la historia bíblica. Esto nos proveerá de información de los periodos de la era de la biblia, los eventos y lo que caracterizo a estos periodos, también se revelan libros de la biblia que provienen de esos periodos, en la parte de abajo se encontraran objetos que describen algún verso de la biblia. Lo cual la mayoría de nosotros nos interesaremos a leer debido a lo visual de los objetos, mirando estos objetos junto con este pergamino las historias de la biblia cobran vida y son más fáciles de entender. En el lado Sur del museo está el Tell-Hamman, donde Morgan a participado en la excavación de algunos de los objetos en los pasados 4 años. Se cree según el Jordán que es la ciudad de Sodoma así como está escrito en el Genesis. Esta esquina será de 3 dimensión, pues actualmente Morgan esta escavando en Jordania y ahí es donde se colocaran los objetos
que el obtenga, así como también se mostrara el metro de cenizas que existe lo cual es fiel evidencia de la historia en la biblia donde Sodoma fue destruida, por piedras y fuego. Morgan planea regresar el quinto año para el de excavaciones que seria para el mes de Enero del año próximo. Este ano estará enfocado en la edad temprana de Bronce, la cual fue la de Sodoma como está inscrito en el Genesis en la Tabla de naciones antes de la gran inundación, Morgan nos comento ha cerca del proyecto proveniente que es la excavación en Jordán. Woodland United Fellowship’s tendrá los siguientes eventos: El club de los niños arqueólogos: Se reunirá cada otro viernes de las 3:30 a 5:00 p.m. para aprender como la arqueología y la biblia trabajan juntos. Se jugaran juegos como excavaciones de un pedazo específico. Clases en griego y hebreo: Abierto al público con el pago de una pequeña cuota. Lo básico del Nuevo Testamento griego es de 6:00 a 8:00 p.m. Los jueves. Series de Lectura: El museo ofrece al menos 2 series de lectura cada ano, concerniente a la arqueología y la historia bíblica. Estas son gratis y abiertas al público. El Dr. John Moore comenzara la lectura a las 9:30 a.m. El Sábado 10 de octubre acerca del Interstamental Periodo (de 400 anos en medio del periodo que se escribió el nuevo testamento), y continuara en la tarde a las 1:00p.m. Escava en el Tell-Hamman: El domingo 15 de noviembre a las 6:00p.m. El Dr. Steven Collins, que es el director de la excavación arqueológica en el Jordán, estará compartiendo su más reciente información acerca de la excavación que él cree será el historial del bíblico Sodoma, todos están bienvenidos a la lectura y la participación en la excavación. Para más información por favor entra al www.wufonline.org.

COMMUNITY PREPAREDNESS EVENT A LESSON IN PUBLIC SAFETY EVENT HELD SEPTEMBER 29 AT THE
BY: ELIZABETH KALFSBEEK Writer & Contributor
El otoño esta a la vuelta de la esquina, y con el cambio de la estación, también las alergias y los resfriados, llegan a algunas personas. Con las personas perdiendo sus trabajos, declinándoles los cuidados de salud; la prevención con medicina alternativa pude ser una buena alternativa para el ahorro de de dinero en esta crisis económica. “ Una onza de prevención, vale una libra de curación”, nos dijo Michael O’ Connor, quien es dueño y a la misma vez opera el centro de nutrición en Woodland por más de 20 anos. “No debemos de esperar a estar enfermos sino que debemos de ayudar a nuestro cuerpo alimentándolo adecuadamente.” Esto puede ser tan sencillo como tener en la cocina comidas saludables, “así como tomar un buen suplemento de vitaminas”. La gente que prepara sus cuerpos nutricionalmente, y de todos modos se enferman, se sanaran más rápidamente y la enfermedad vivirá menos tiempo en la persona que está preparada nutricionalmente hablando. Los estornudos, la picazón en los ojos, la nariz mojándose continuamente, el dolor de garganta, las infecciones de sinusitis, la congestión…. Se te hacen síntomas familiares? Hay una cantidad de teorías, para la temporada de resfriados y la gripe, incluyendo la proximidad de a cercarse a los niños al regreso de la escuela, visitar amigos o parientes durante las fiestas, lo mojado que crea lama o mojo que trae las alergias, y así sucesivamente. “Una vez que el paciente recibe el diagnostico del doctor, la decisión del tratamiento a seguir es decisión del paciente, si él quiere tomar los tratamientos naturales o escoger los tratamientos sintéticos”, nos comento O’Connor. El oeste se acerca a la medicina sintética, tratando y calmando algunos de los síntomas. Un acercamiento holístico trata esto atreves de la alimentación, reforzando las defensas del cuerpo y en consecuente la resistencia de este ante las enfermedades. Los remedios herbarios o naturales, son nombrados como alternativos, pero apenas 100 anos atrás, los tratamientos eran naturales. Los remedios homeopáticos, reentrenan al cuerpo, lo cual toma más tiempo y paciencia que los calmantes instantáneos. “Es muy desafortunado que no tengamos una formal educación y
ha cercamiento a lo natural”. Algunos COLUSA COUNT Y FAIRGROUNDS países, incorporan los dos lo natural y lo sintético a sus tratamientos medicinales.” Sin una formal educación en los remedios naturales, queda en cada persona el tratar diferentes tratamientos homeopáticos, y mirar que es lo que le resulta mejor a su organismo. O’Connor hace hincapié en el acercamiento a que lo nutricional es individual de cada persona y es diferente en cada organismo. El invita a las personas a visitar su taller y platicar con él. “Muy raramente son usados los tratamientos naturales para tratar síntomas”. Las personas tienen un gran sistema que los mantiene en un buen balance de sanación, pero hay (Staff Photo) Officer Keith Swift of the Williams Police Department gave demonstrations with maravillosas herramientas naturales his K9 partner, Sarek, showing how the dog can sniff out narcotics and other objects. para las necesidades individuales de cada persona.” Podríamos cambiar la visita hacia la farmacia esta temporada y en vez, hacer un acercamiento a lo holístico, para mantener y tratar todo el cuerpo, lo cual puede significar menos enfermedades, y el gasto en dinero también se reduciría, todo en conjunto.” “Todo lo que puedas hacer para mejorar y reforzar la salud de tu cuerpo para un futuro requiere de algunos tratamientos atravez del camino” nos termino diciendo O’
