John D. Rockefeller once said, “I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.” For David McGee-Williams, Ph.D., and his wife, Gail Winslow, Ph.D., perseverance truly has overcome nature. To the delight of thousands of visitors since 2004, their trials and refusal to give up reaps one of the most stunning landscapes in far Northern California: the Mt. Shasta Lavender Farms. Their lavender story began more than 20 years ago when the couple moved to Mount Shasta to escape Bay Area congestion. The two loved gardening together and needed a physical outlet to compensate for the long hours spent at their psychology practice in Redding. continued on page 14

But as years passed and their neighborhood developed, trees grew tall and blocked the essences of their joys. Without the sunlight they craved and a clear view of the mountain they loved, it was time to seek something different. When they found their farm property, it was nothing but 800 acres of rocky soil. No road. No electricity. No water source. One thing it did have: a stunning, unadulterated view of Mt. Shasta. That was enough for them. So they bought the property, built a dirt road into it and drilled their first well, which didn’t produce enough water. So they dug another, deeper well, this time hitting a water lode. They picked a spot to clear for their first lavender field, one of the few crops they suspected would thrive in the rocky soil. “We discovered the rocks went near to the center of the earth,” says David, who, after weeks of futile skimming, rented an industrial tractor to till a “mine field of rocks” from that first plot. Anxious to see their vision bloom, the couple air-freighted their first 4,000 plants, a fragrant, patented, English variety, from Australia. Eager to meet his precious living cargo, David drove to San Francisco to greet them. The USDA quarantined the shipment, relegating the plants to a locked warehouse with no water or sunlight over a three-day weekend. “I almost cried,” says David, who thinks his near-tears earned him a one-time pass through inspection if he could prove the plants were “clean.” So David and a friend shook growing medium off 4,000 plants by hand before wrapping each in damp newspaper. Only 400 plants survived. “We were terribly discouraged,” says David. Stymied but not stopped, they found an Oregon grower, invested in more lavender and got to planting. When the fields began to bloom in earnest, friends encouraged David and Gail to open their garden to the public. Their first open weekend, only 12 cars came through. “Our daughter said, ‘You know, continued on page 16 14 | Enjoy JUNE 2013

maybe this wasn’t such a great idea.’” But the idea of sharing their farm seemed right. So they continued to open during summers, selling soaps, lotions and lavender-based products they made themselves. In 2012, more than 10,000 visitors from as far away as Japan and Australia meandered, clipped lavender sprigs and inhaled the abundant 20-acre aroma, believed to relieve stress and anxiety. Entrance to the farm is free and visitors are encouraged to walk far and wide or take an 18-minute meditative stroll through a labyrinth. “Be sure to take your camera when you go,” says Christina LaBella, a Redding resident, “because the views are spectacular. Pack a lunch so you can stay and enjoy the views.” “When they first get here, people burst into tears all the time,” says Gail. “It’s that stunning.” While this labor of love called Lavender Farms demands endless work, investment and periods of disappointment, it more than pays off. “Working an office job is deadly,” says David. “Farming is physical with a purpose. If we are here doing this, we aren’t doing that. And if I’m doing that, I’m not thinking about this. It’s the perfect balance.” “And yes, we’re tired,” says Gail. So at the end of every season, after the visitors are gone and they are weary to the bone, the two collapse into chairs, pour champagne and take in their mountain. And then one says, “You know what we should do next year?” • Mt. Shasta Lavender Farms • 9706 Harry Cash Road, Montague • (530) 926-2651

When Tricia Kibler’s family moved into their new home a year ago, she had her priorities sketched out. “We didn’t even have a kitchen table yet and I was on a ladder painting a humpback whale on the wall,” she says. Such is the life of this stylish, affable artist, whose colorful works are spreading their way throughout the North State. A former hairstylist, she put away her scissors about three years ago to focus on her family and her artwork. One of her first major public displays was at Brew Craft Coffee in Redding. “When they first opened, they had a call to artists. They love local stuff and were so great,” she says. “Before I had an office, that’s where I’d go and draw.” She has painted murals at places including the Farmers Insurance office where her studio resides, The Tasting Room, the Elegant Bean

in Cottonwood and Yaks Coffee. “Yaks was the hardest job I’ve done — I painted roses on the ceiling,” she says. “I love to go big.” The Stirring church has also wholeheartedly supported her work, she says. “I do a lot of live art during worship. I have a big canvas and I paint on it while people are singing.” And an expansive wall at The Social yogurt shop in Redding showcases the first installment in Kibler’s “Pretend” series, in which a woman’s personality is expressed in her hair, since “a woman’s hair makes her feel special and beautiful.” Says The Social’s owner, Martin Moseley: “I knew as soon as I bought the business that it needed a look that wasn’t done to death, so I called Tricia and gave her a super vague concept of what I wanted. I’m not an artist in any sense of the imagination, and she came in and just went to work, and it’s now one of the highlights of my shop.” continued on page 20

JUNE 2013 ENJOY | 19

The “Pretend” series has been a mind-stretcher for Kibler. The hair in her “Beauty and the Beast” piece features the iconic rose from the film, and the back captures a lion’s passionate roar. The tresses in “Don’t Let Go” are a tangle of tentacles, seaweed and coral. “Loud Mind” is a chaotic swirl of birds and flowers, the woman’s hair obscuring all but her eyes and nose. “She’s covered up, but can see everything — the beauty in the madness,” Kibler explains. She’s also gaining acclaim outside the North State. She donated an octopus painting to Monterey Bay Aquarium for a fundraiser, where it was paired with a one-on-one experience with an octopus. The package fetched $2,500 — more than any other — and she’ll donate another this year. She delights in watching people interpret her work differently, and many of her pieces include nuggets that aren’t designed for anyone to understand but her. In a print on her office wall, a girl’s head is topped with an Alice in Wonderland quote, a gumball machine, a Viewmaster slide and a white owl. “There’s lots of symbolic childhood stuff in my artwork,” she says, sitting behind her mother’s old thick, paintsplattered table that now functions as her desk. She describes her creative process as a continuous series of inspirations, and as essential to her morning as a mug of coffee. “I go somewhere like Turtle Bay or the antique store, and the trinkets, people, moods, music — a lot of things inspire me,” she says. “I have a ridiculous amount of pens, paintbrushes and sketches in my purse.” Kibler and her husband, Matt, met on the swim team at West Valley High School when she was 15, and their two sons - Wyatt, 5, and Weston, 7 - are both artists. “Weston will cut shapes, color them and put them together and it’s a huge crocodile. He calls it ‘making his own toys.’ He doesn’t have a big crocodile, so he makes one,” she says. Encouraging the next generation of artists thrills her. “My mom let me paint a terrible, terrible ocean scene in my room when I was a kid,” she says. “I had very encouraging parents who said, ‘Do what makes you, you.’ Art is how I entertained myself. It’s still how I entertain myself.” •

bull s eye

h a l l o f fame B u l l f i g h t er j o e baumgar t ner Some of the best bucking bulls in professional bull riding are raised in Red Bluff. Through careful consideration of genetics and years of experience, Don Kish has established a string of animal athletes well sought out by both the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association and Professional Bull Riders. Signs are posted at the entrance to Kish’s ranch: Enter at your own risk. A quick glance at the fencing reveals that this is no ordinary working ranch. Where wood and barbed wire would stand anywhere else, the tough, wide metal of well casing fills in. The height is much taller than average and in some areas there is very little space between slats.

One can quickly sense that these animals, grouped in pens by age, aren’t exactly gentle giants. It was on a ranch similar to this in the Bay Area town of Concord that 46-year-old champion bullfighter Joe Baumgartner got his start honing the most important skill of his trade—predicting bulls’ behavior in the rodeo arena by observing them on the outside. Just 15 at the time, Baumgartner credits doing general ranch work for Dan Russell to be the start of his bullfighting career. “He was teaching me how to understand and read livestock, and that’s a very important part of the job,” he says. continued on page 24

JUNE 2013 ENJOY | 23

Baumgartner considers a host of characteristics when studying the bulls: “Just the way they move, how much they’re watching you, how much they care that you’re there, if they’re paying attention to you” are all part of the equation. “You can almost look at them and tell how they’re feeling: if they’re feeling good, if they’re feeling sick.” “I was pretty athletic as a kid,” says Baumgartner, noting a second trait of his success in the rodeo arena. As a student at De La Salle, a Catholic high school well regarded for its athletics program, he played second-team All-American soccer in his early years. “By my junior year,” he notes, “I didn’t even join the team because I was

rodeoing. I had the bug.” Through his job with Russell, he got to know Ted Groene, “a wellknown bull fighter, probably one of the greatest cowboy protectors ever in the sport.” Groene took Baumgartner under his wing and taught him the trade. “He was a mentor, he was someone I respected. He was amazing to watch. I was really lucky that he kind of adopted me as a younger brother.” Ultimately, bull fighting is about delivering bull riders safely out of the arena, regardless of their success making an eight-second ride. Some of the greatest bull riders consistently deliver bad landings and continued on page 26

make the bull fighter’s job more difficult. “There’s never really been a bull that’s scared me, but there have been riders that scare me,” says Baumgartner. In 1992, he moved to Red Bluff to work for Growney Brothers Rodeo Company, where Kish contracts his bucking bulls, and he had the opportunity to fight bulls on the PRCA circuit. His talents were recognized early by Kish, who became an advocate for Baumgartner as he established his career. It didn’t take long before Baumgartner was sought out to be the bullfighter of choice by both contestants and rodeo committee members. When the Professional Bull Riders established their first world finals, Baumgartner was asked to protect their cowboys. He earned his way to 14 National Finals Rodeos and each and every PBR World Finals during his career. Baumgartner retired at the 2011 PBR World Finals and now spends time as a referee for the California Basketball Officiating Association and as a quail and hog hunting guide for Red Bank Outfitters. He enjoys more downtime with his wife Melanie and teenage sons Robert and Joey.

“I never set an age when I was going to quit, but I knew that when I reached the time when I couldn’t go in and protect the guys I was with that it would be time to quit,” he says. The rodeo season is a grind of weeks spent traveling, and as a younger man he’d start to get tired in September. But as the years wore on, he was starting to wear out by June. “It was never the bulls I was tired of,” he says. “It was the travel.” Fatigue started leading to more injuries. In July, fully rested and recovered, he will travel once again for rodeo, but this time to Colorado Springs to be inducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame at the Museum of the American Cowboy. His work in the rodeo arena is missed by fans and the cowboys who came to trust him with their lives, but it will forever be lauded with this top honor. “It’s a great finish to a great career,” he says humbly. • Melissa Mendonca is passionate about adding stamps to her passport and just as enthusiastic about her hometown of Red Bluff.

Sequoia sempervirens knows no equals among flora. Known far and wide as the coast redwood, the species includes the tallest trees on Earth. Its foot-thick bark repels insects with ease; raging forest fires leave little more than soot marks. Jedediah Strong Smith was a formidable character as well. He survived a vicious grizzly bear attack in 1824, stopping only to have his company of fur trappers sew his scalp and ear back on, and two years later became the first explorer of European ancestry to travel overland from the Mississippi River to California. Once in California, Smith took his entourage north along the Pacific coast and into present-day Oregon, navigating his way

through the vast stands of giant redwoods that covered an estimated 2.1 million acres. It was only fitting, then, that one of the best places in the North State to revel in the glory of old-growth redwoods—Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park—was named after the explorer whose pioneering efforts helped open the region to new eyes. His namesake park is 10,430 acres of redwoods, hiking trails, campground and visitor center with the Smith River—California’s last major freeflowing river—coursing through the middle of it all. Located on Highway 199 about nine miles east of Crescent City, the park is one of three state parks (joining Del Norte Coast and continued on page 30

Combined, they protect 45 percent of California’s remaining redwood forests. The park is far enough inland to offer up plenty of warm summer days while the coast can be enveloped in fog. Winter is a different story altogether, with 100-inch rainfall totals not out of the norm. That mix of moderate year-round temperatures and lots of rain is a perfect blend for coast redwoods, which can tower to heights of 350 feet or higher and develop trunks with 20-foot diameters during life spans that can exceed 2,000 years. Although its exact location is a closely held secret (as a ranger noted during a campfire talk at the visitors center, redwoods are not immune to sightseers hoping to carve out a piece of history), the world’s tallest tree resides in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park.

It has been named Hyperion and scientists used lasers to document its height at 379 feet. One of Hyperion’s neighbors, the Del Norte Titan, is believed to be one of the world’s largest trees by volume. At a relatively demure 307 feet in height, the Titan features a 23-footthick trunk and an astounding 37,000 cubic feet of wood—enough to build 120 average-sized homes. Others in the race toward the heavens include the Stratosphere Giant, Helios and Icarus. Biologists note that growth spurts, wind storms, rainfall variances and even woodpeckers can tip the balance and shift the tallest-tree crown from one giant to another. The silent majesty and visual grandeur of the redwood experience can be fully appreciated during a walk through Stout Grove, located a half-mile from the 89-site campground and accessible during summer months by a footbridge across the Smith River. Towering redwoods are joined by western hemlock, Douglas fir, continued on page 32

P IO N E E R I N G M I N I M A LI S T T E R R Y R IL E Y AT TH E C A S C A D E TH E AT R E For an artist credited with launching the Minimalist movement, Terry Riley has had a maximum influence. His breakthrough composition, 1964’s hypnotic, multilayered “IN C,” was heralded as a revolution; the piece’s impact can be heard in works by contemporaries like Philip Glass and John Adams as well as rock bands like The Who, whose “Baba O’Riley” is a tribute to the composer. At a Carnegie Hall celebration of the composition’s 45th anniversary, the Argentine composer Osvaldo Golijov likened “IN C” to “the greatness of the ‘Rite of Spring’ or ‘Demoiselles d’Avignon’ by Picasso. These are the first pieces—No. 1 in history—and then constantly imitated, consciously, unconsciously, with thousands of spinoffs. “And yet, the original—both ‘IN C’ and ‘Rite of Spring’—they are still superior to any imitators. So that is sensational. How can somebody be so radical and then in one masterstroke include the future?” The answer, Riley says, might just have its origins in Redding, the city he called home during some of his more formative years, and a chance meeting with Redding pianist, composer and instructor Duane Hampton. Riley, 77, returns to Redding on June 23 for a celebratory homecoming concert at the Cascade Theatre. He will be joined by his son Gyan (pronounced ‘Gee-yawn’), a classical guitarist from Brooklyn. Riley moved to Redding in time to begin his freshman year at Shasta High in 1949. “There were only about 10,000 people,” he recalls in a phone conversation from his home in the Sierra Nevada foothills near Grass Valley. “It was kind of a nice-sized town and I could ride my bike to school.” Riley enjoyed sports—“I played football and baseball on the high school team. I was not a great athlete but I liked to play”—but he loved music. “Whenever I would sit down at a piano, I would play. I did not always have access to a teacher and then I finally found Duane, who was such a good teacher. He exposed me to a repertoire and really launched me into that instrument.” Hampton, who at age 85 shows no signs of slowing down, remembers Riley well. “I was only four or five years older than he was when I was his teacher. I had given him Mozart and he really loved Mozart on the piano. I gave continued on page 36 JUNE 2013 ENJOY | 35

him a classical background and the rudiments. Terry was a very eager learner.” His former pupil “is in all the college textbooks now. He’s very popular. He added a whole new dimension,” Hampton says. After graduating from Shasta High in 1953, Riley attended Shasta College for two years and then continued his training at San Francisco State University, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and the University of California at Berkeley. “I was really interested in all kinds of music. I had been interested in popular music and jazz as a kid, and as I got older, I got introduced to the classics. Each composer I was introduced to would open up a new world to me,” Riley says. That world really opened in 1970 when he met Pandit Pran Nath, a renowned classical singer from north India, and began studying with him in India and at Mills College in Oakland, where both men taught. “I was already developing a lot of interest in improvisation and had done a lot of work with that. When I met Pran Nath and started learning about the northern India musical style, I realized it was very similar to what I was doing with my music,” Riley recalls. Although he will forever be known for his pioneering work in Minimalism, Riley says his performances are more about improvisation and spontaneity. The younger Riley, reached at his home in New York, agreed. “We like to have a lot of fun on stage; there’s always a lot of spontaneity when we play together,” Gyan Riley says. “He’s pretty unpredictable, in terms of what tunes we’ll play. He’ll change them on the fly, do random

things I didn’t expect. There’s a certain excitement about playing with him.” That lack of predictability extends to the audience as well, Riley says. “It’s hard for audiences to be prepared. Just expect to hear different things. People enjoy the interaction between us…there’s no written score, but we’re interacting on a very deep level. “It’s not entertaining in the sense of popular music, but it draws the listener in. I’m usually playing in places where people know a little more about me. I’ll be doing ‘missionary’ work in Redding, but it’s good for us too, to connect with people like that.” The Cascade Theatre concert, which coincides with Shasta High’s 60year reunion and takes place a day before Riley’s 78th birthday, also is an opportunity for Riley to look back, his son says. “The real unique thing about this is it’s a real neat chance for him to go back there and reflect on the long journey of his musical experience.” • Concert: 2 pm June 23.

{SUMMER Beauty} B E A U T Y TI P S TO keep y o u l o o k i ng c o o l w h en t h e t emperat ure h eat s up


For simple hairstyles, it’s all about pretty braids, effortless textures and undone updos. It’s all about the products when dealing with the soaring mercury. For frizz, apply an anti-humectant cream (try Suave Professionals Weather Protection 365 Anti-Frizz and Flyaway Cream Gel) to damp locks to protect them from unwanted moisture. Skip the heat styling and store your curling and flat irons away for the next few months. Work with what you’ve got: If you want to boost your natural waves or curls, try a texturizing product made for your hair type. Go for a casual look. If you have long hair, wear it up or back more often. Try a bun, single braid or braided accent. ( Just be sure to set it with a humidity-blocking hair spray, such as Garnier Fructis Style Sleek and Shine Anti-Humidity Non-Aerosol Hairspray, so it lasts.)


For makeup, take advantage of the bronzy shades of summer and smolder in the latest palettes. For eyes, apply copper shadow to lids and along lower lashlines. For a more subtle effect, use a copper liner on upper and lower lashlines. (For water resistant shadow, try Make Up Forever Aqua Cream in #12.) On your face, choose a bronzer that’s no more than two shades darker than your natural skin tone. Sweep it across cheekbones, forehead, chin and the bridge of your nose. For lips, slick on a shimmery or shiny sheer gloss in neutral peach, pink or taupe. (Try Cover Girl ShineBlast Lip Gloss in Gleam.) continued on page 40 JUNE 2013 ENJOY | 39

35 Don’t forget about silky and stubble-free skin! Shave your legs with a hydrating razor that has four blades, surrounded by skinsoftening moisturizers (try Schick Intuition Plus Sensitive Care razor). There’s even a relatively easy and scent-free depilatory: Sally Hanson Pure Scent-sation Hair Remover for Body. It’s great for legs and will leave skin hair-free for up to six days.


Color more your style than bronze? You’re in luck! Blue is the go-to shade for summer, and surprisingly easy to wear. Go all out with teal or aqua on lids, or just line eyes with a blue pencil. (Rimmel London Glam Eyes Mono Look in Posh Peacock; Cargo Swimmables Waterproof Pencil Collection). Blend sheer, hot pink blush on the apples of your cheeks—stick to cream or gel formulas, as powdery textures can streak in the heat. On lips, try a gloss in fuchsia, coral or red. They may look intense, but go on sheer, so anyone can pull them off.

Lastly, get a flawless faux glow by applying a selftanner body spray or shimmery body oil. Try L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze ProPerfect Salon Airbrush Self-Tanning Mist or MAC To The Beach Bronze Body Oil.

With just a little bit of extra effort, you can relax and know that, in spite of the heat, your style will be flawless. Get ready to enjoy a sensational summer! •

letter A u t h o r P R OFIL E s : Deb R o uss o u A N D p h i l s c r i ma

Deb Roussou grew up in the kitchen of the family restaurant where every meal was prepared from scratch. Her father, a trained chef, inspired her love of the culinary world. “He was the most amazing cook,” she says. “He knew how to really bring out the flavor in foods.” Today, instead of in a restaurant kitchen, you are more likely to find Deb Roussou ambling up and down the aisles of her local grocery store, checking food ingredient labels while doing research for her latest recipes. Author of several cookbooks with almost a million copies in print in five languages, Roussou says, “People think being a cookbook writer is a glam job, but it’s hard work. You write on tight deadlines and you have to take the work as it comes in.” In her role as a freelance corporate food consultant, Roussou works under contract for manufacturers of small kitchen appliances that want to package cookbooks with their product. Some of her projects have included recipe books for the Foreman Grill and Cuisinart blender. “In the cookbook world, you have to do both (corporate and private publishing) unless you’re a celebrity,” she says. While a product is still in development, she tests and analyzes its capabilities before developing recipes. “Every project has some sort of a thematic challenge—grilling, low-fat recipes or quick meals,” says Roussou. “For me, it’s still all about the flavor. Just because we’re doing something with steam that is low fat, doesn’t mean I want to sacrifice flavor.” Aspiring cookbook writers should consider several factors. “Some of the corporations will use ‘From the Test Kitchen of ________’ instead of the author’s name,” says Roussou. “If you’re trying to build a repertoire of published credits to add to your resume, it’s nice to have a book with your name on it.” Additionally, international cookbooks commonly use both

42 | Enjoy JUNE 2013

imperial and metric measurement standards, so authors need to be familiar with conversion. Thinking beyond the current season to recipes that can be enjoyed year-round is another challenge. Roussou admits the life of a freelance writer is not a particularly balanced one. “I’m working on two books at the same time because that’s how the contracts came in, so other things have been put on hold,” she says. “I just shipped a product to Hawaii so I can continue working while I’m on vacation.” The newest book, 350 Best Vegan Recipes, published by Robert Rose Publishing, dedicates 400 pages to a variety of unique and tantalizing culinary delights, from Nori Rolls and French Herbed Strata to Mocha Cupcakes with Almond Icing. “My kitchen became a science lab and my experiments the basis for writing the cookbook,” she says. “I realized a lot of these alternatives aren’t generally available.” For example, she created a sun-dried tomato herbed Greek soy feta cheese in olive oil by first freezing and then thawing and brining tofu as a substitute for dairy cheese. Roussou’s best advice to wannabe cookbook writers? Be specific in recipe instructions. “Look at a good cookbook and see how it’s written,” she says. “Then look at a bad cookbook and see how it’s written. The devil is in the details.”•

Beautiful Shasta Lake is right around the corner! In love with writing

from an early age, Phil Scrima wrote a short story in the seventh grade that his English teacher told him should be published. In spite of this early encouragement, he stopped writing and pursued business instead, later starting a multi-milliondollar-a-year vending machine sales company that employed 50 people. The early urge to write, however, returned years later when he awoke late one night and grabbed a notepad. He began scribbling the beginnings of his novel, “From All Sides The Squeeze,” which he constructed over a 20-year period and published in 2011 at age 72. “I try and put in an hour a night,” says Scrima. “It doesn’t have to be a lot of time, but you should write every day. It’s important.” His newest book, “The Little Leaf That Wouldn’t Fall,” was inspired both by a tenacious single leaf clinging to an oak tree branch outside his window and by his grandchildren. The book follows a young protagonist and a little leaf through the seasons of their lives and offers parents a child-friendly approach to talking about death. Committed to accuracy, Scrima does due diligence when it comes to fact-checking his fictionalized details. In his current work-in-progress, a science fiction short story series with a social message, he wanted to make believable a scene featuring a 19th century gun duel, so he researched the kinds of pistols used during that era and made some interesting discoveries. “There was no such thing as the ‘fast draw’ that we see in movies or read about in books covering that era,” he says. “The guns were too heavy and cumbersome.” Scrima, who maintains exclusive rights to all of his work, suggests those interested in self-publishing use discernment when choosing a publishing company. “Read the fine print on contracts and know your rights,” he says. “Make sure you have copies of your original content.” His biggest piece of advice to writers, however, is to follow their dreams and passions. “You’re never too old,” he says. “I published my first book when I was in my 70s and I still work 12 hours a day. It’s not like I’m retired and can spend all my time writing.”• Books available at Enjoy the Store.

Cyc l i ng i n t h e n o rt h stat e The North State boasts of some of the most scenic bicycle trails for every kind of cyclist, from casual and occasional to expert and competitive. Traveling back roads, however, is a much different story than navigating around town on city streets. Increasingly, communities have been addressing the need for safer bike lanes on city streets shared with motor vehicles that make commuting easier and extend recreational riding options. continued on page 46

On a steep section of Westside Trail in Redding, two cyclists who had made it to the top of the grade described the joy of cycling for both fitness and pleasure. Jim Smith expressed his passion for exploring scenic routes where only his bicycle can take him. He also enjoys his bicycle commute to work several days each week. Smith is in good company, as a growing number of environmentand health-conscious folks are choosing to ride their bicycles to work. Some have chosen bicycle commuting as a way to cut back on increasing fuel costs, others to accomplish two tasks at once by incorporating their fitness routine into their commute. Christina Piles typically commutes 9.5 miles each way to work every day, often picking up groceries on the way home. She enjoys riding her bike to work “for the exercise, and the mornings along the river are wonderful. I especially love getting to the top of Hilltop Drive and stopping for a moment to look at the sun on the hills to the west, or to look at the mist on the river.” Piles takes short shopping trips on her old steel Bontrager mountain bike that she has modified by removing the front shocks, changing to skinnier tires, and adding storage bags, lights and fenders. She says, “Riding a bike as transportation has been a part of my life for so long that I can’t imagine things any other way. It’s a habit I started long ago and I truly love it.” Gary Larson, owner of the Chain Gang Bike Shop in Redding, has seen a gradual increase in commuter cycling during the past decade. Most serious cyclists own several bikes, he says. Crossover styles that can be used for both recreation and commuting range in price from $500 upward. The ranks of commuters and lifestyle cyclists is growing around the country and city planners have taken notice. Designated bike lanes provide a sense of safety for both motorists and cyclists as they share the road. Sara Sundquist, who works for Healthy Shasta and often delivers her daughter to preschool by bicycle, lauds the City of Redding and Caltrans for considering citizens’ concerns about the need to accommodate cyclists. They are working to add more bike lanes, along with bike signal detection at intersections. Still, she says,

“It’s challenging for people who aren’t comfortable riding in traffic.” Healthy Shasta developed the Redding Bike Map several years ago in response to the public’s requests to show the safest roads for cycling. The regularly updated map takes into account traffic volume, speed, shoulder width and bike lane conditions. Sundquist says, “It’s a good resource to use when biking to a destination for the first few times, as the route a person chooses to drive is often not the best way for a bicyclist.” Kate Powlison of PeopleForBikes, a nationwide bicycle advocacy organization, says, “Bicycling is a simple solution to many of our nation’s most complex problems. From obesity to road congestion to skyrocketing health care costs, bicycling can help ease these issues. Forty percent of all the trips we make are two miles or less--a distance we hope people will consider biking.” In this fast-paced society, slowing down to enjoy the journey from the seat of a bicycle takes some planning but pays great dividends. •

Sandie Tillery writes about the North State from 35 years of personal experience exploring it from corner to corner with husband John, their three grown children and four grandsons. She loves interviewing the amazing people who live here and telling their stories.

“With Fire & Light it’s like a party every day.” ~Angie Lidster, collector

F ire & L i g ht G l ass i n humb o l dt co un t y John and Natali McClurg, owners of the Fire & Light glassware company in Arcata, have the three Rs down to an art. But they’re doing more than recycling, reducing and reusing: they’re rethinking business. With an eye for creativity and a heart for community, the couple is doing its part to build a sustainable and vibrant future for Humboldt County — and the planet. Fire & Light began in 1995 as a grassroots partnership between the Arcata Community Recycling Center and a group of locals who wanted to turn recycled glass into beautiful, functional products. When the McClurgs rescued Fire & Light from closure in 1999, they had plenty of vision in mind for the struggling company. Their passion for recycling is obvious in the kaleidoscope of hand-made glass that makes their company unique, but it’s what goes on behind the scenes that shows the McClurgs’ true colors. Examples of their environmental mindfulness can be found throughout their studio: repurposed local microbrewery kegs act as cooling buckets for ladles, and 1,000 pounds per week of recycled cardboard is reused for packing materials. Even the flooring that supports day-to-day activities is reclaimed metal from an out-of-business local sawmill. Though today’s economic climate has been tough for Humboldt businesses, the McClurgs strive to build a legacy not only for themselves, but for the small coastal community of  continued on page 50

“The fact that we’re able to keep jobs local and keep people employed is one of the things that keeps us going,” Natali says. Arcata and Fire & Light employees. “Our employees are just the greatest group of people,” says John. “Through the recession, we’ve all hung in there together.” During one particularly trying time when the McClurgs were forced to implement layoffs to find their financial footing, employees continued to show their appreciation. “There was a guy who I had moved from day shift to night shift to day shift again, and I had him doing multiple jobs. I walked out to the studio one night to thank him for hanging in there with us, and he looked at me and said, ‘No, thank you for the job,’” says John. It’s this reciprocity and gratitude that keeps the McClurgs optimistic about the future. “The fact that we’re able to keep jobs local and keep people employed is one of the things that keeps us going,” Natali says. It’s not just employees who appreciate the McClurgs’ good work; it’s the citizens of Humboldt. “We’ve received postcards from locals who are on vacation and find Fire & Light in a store,” John says. “They’re so proud of the fact that the glass is made here that they send notes to tell us about it. That’s pretty cool.” The McClurgs have recycled nearly 7 million bottles and jars and have expanded distribution to 600 retail outlets nationwide that

offer tableware, art glass and giftware in spectrum of rich colors: celery, olive, plum, twilight, aqua, cobalt, copper, lavender and citrus. “Of the nine colors, seven are produced using more than 91 percent recycled glass,” says Natali. With art, function, environment and style in mind, artisans blend the age-old tradition of hand-pressed glass with innovative manufacturing practices to turn once-wasted resources into one-of-a kind works of art. And there’s no rushing something so special. Each handcrafted piece takes three days to complete. Fire & Light enthusiast Angie Lidster has been collecting the art glass for nearly 10 years. A business owner herself, she appreciates the McClurgs’ dedication to community. “What they’re doing is admirable,” she says. “Keeping it local is the only way our economy is going to stay stable.” And as a foodie, she loves the beauty and simplicity the glassware brings to meals, whether casual or formal. “It’s so pretty and so festive. With Fire & Light it’s like a party every day,” she says. Pieces that don’t make the first cut are sold at Fire & Light’s Annual Seconds Sale in October. The sale draws recycled glass fans from far and wide, with some camping close by the night before the two-day event.

Discover home-like surroundings, compassionate care, and state-of-the-art technology on the birth day of your newest addition. The seconds are popular with those who don’t mind flaws. Though she collects both firsts and seconds, Lidster admits that she prefers her glass with a little character. “I like the uniqueness of each piece,” she says. “I don’t see a bubble as an imperfection. It’s a natural feature, like a freckle.” Perfect or not, Fire & Light glass has a way of drawing the eye — and the heart — to its luminous glow. Its beauty enchants, but perhaps what makes Fire & Light so special are the stories behind each colorful piece and the artisans who handcraft them, or the McClurgs’ commitment to sustainability and the eco-conscious community of Arcata that supports their vision. Maybe, it’s all of the above that makes Fire & Light unlike any other glassware on the planet. •

When Gary Desmond and Armando Mejorado put in their first koi pond two years ago, they didn’t think much about the devil being in the details. They dug down several feet, inserted a liner, added some gravel, water and koi and topped it off with a fountain. It turned out not to be the perfect recipe for a pond. “There are things we did that we thought sounded good but then discovered they were absolutely the wrong things to do,” says Desmond. Like adding that gravel to the bottom of the pond. “It’s a big no-no because it provides a place for ‘bad’ bacteria to hide and it can make the fish sick,” Desmond adds. “Koi ponds also don’t use regular filters like a pool filter. They’re not cleaned by stripping; they’re cleaned by beneficial bacteria, so they use a continued on page 56

beneficial bacteria filter system. Our first one was too small.” The two learned their lessons quickly after discovering the Shasta Koi & Water Garden Club, which they credit with their growing koi expertise. Part of the national Associated Koi Clubs of America, the Shasta club has been around for about 15 years, and counts among its 50 members koi hobbyists at all levels of experience. (Koi is a Japanese word meaning carp.) Mejorado and Desmond were aided by the club with loaner tanks to store their fish while they tore out their old pond and rebuilt. “The club has about $10,000 worth of equipment (like temporary

tanks) that members can borrow for leaking ponds,” says Desmond. “This is a membership benefit and was nice because it didn’t cost us anything extra to house our fish while we were rebuilding.” Members also have access to a library of books and magazines on koi and pond habitat. Although they made several mistakes with the first pond, they were lucky with their depth estimate. “We hit between three and three-anda-half feet in the first pond,” says Mejorado, “but if you go shallower it allows predatory birds and animals to swoop in and take the fish. That can be heartbreaking because they really are like your pets.”

After hearing talk that the club might disband, Mejorado stepped into the role of club president and Desmond assumed the vice president role to keep it going. “There are a lot of people like us who can use the information and the community,” says Mejorado. “Part of the compromise to keep the club running was moving from monthly to bi-monthly meetings, which are held at members’ homes so we get a chance to see everyone’s ponds.” Shared interest and companionship aside, Desmond cautions that

having a koi pond is not for everyone. “It’s a lot more responsibility, I think, than having a dog or a bird,” he says. “Koi are high maintenance. You have to check the water at least a couple times a week for ammonia, nitrates and nitrite.” The two koi aficionados count 22 fish in their family pond, including fish they had shipped from Hawaii and Japan. “We have koi fever and are on the hunt for unique koi that no one else has,” says Mejorado. adding that fish can range from a few dollars to continued on page 58

social networking Jason Eatmon recently earned distinction as one of Shasta County’s most watchable movers and shakers: He won a 2011 “20 Under 40” award sponsored by the Redding Record Searchlight to honor young business professionals who are making a difference. He and his partner, Dan Lockwood (who won the same award in 2012), founded Development Group, Inc., in 2009, and it’s not hard to see why it’s successful even though it was started in the middle of a historic recession. The company specializes in Cisco systems and designs and implements networking systems for businesses as well as educational and governmental entities, and Eatmon has passion not only for his company, but also for being innovative in a highly competitive industry. Eatmon explains that Cisco manufactures the hardware and software that runs the Internet, whereas Development Group, Inc., designs solutions leveraging these technologies, such as video-teleconferencing solutions, firewalls, data centers, voice-over IP systems and more. The company even works with some Fortune 500 companies. “At the core of what we do, we treat every customer in this way: We go in and analyze what problem they’re trying to solve or what objective they’re trying to achieve.” One of the company’s key strategies, Eatmon says, is to approach each client “holistically.” As an example, a school district might want to enhance the marketability of its schools, making them seem safer and more appealing. Development Group, Inc., would help the district see how various resources would enable more people to have the functional technology that contributes to 21st-century learning. “Gone are the days of the chalkboard,” he says, explaining how, for example, technological solutions could enable a district to capture the lessons of an excellent teacher and make them available to all of its students, rather than just 30 at a time.

“Anybody can sell technology,” Eatmon says. “We provide solutions. We partner with our customers and analyze their operations to provide complementary solutions every time. Ninety percent of our business is repeat business.” What’s on the horizon for the still young but growing company? “We’re going to continue to grow,” Eatmon replies confidently, “in two ways—in width and in depth.” The company is expanding up to Portland and south into the Bay Area, with employees in Chico, Sacramento and Oregon. While Eatmon’s company might be viewed as “just a little company in Redding,” they’ve maintained positions on Cisco’s Channel Partner Advisory Board—and Cisco is a Fortune 500 company of 65,000 employees globally. “We’ve helped them steer the ship,” he says, noting Development Group, Inc., has more advanced-level certifications than many companies several times their size. The Redding businessman, who also juggles community service activities and coaches a youth traveling soccer team, has some pointers for others who are in or going into business. “People need to identify that their competitors are no longer just simply across the street,” he says. “Define what you want to accomplish. Articulate to your employees and customers how you’ll maintain your competitive edge. Understand who your customers are and how they purchase.” Eatmon and his partner were fortunate in their early days— they received assistance and guidance from Shasta College’s Small Business Development Center. “They helped us identify some of the logistics we needed to take care of. They helped us register our corporation with the state and make our business plan, and they put us in contact with many other resources as well,” he says. The hard work in the initial stages of planning, as well as the ongoing focused efforts, have paid off: In addition to the “20 under 40” awards presented to Eatmon and his partner, their company was selected by the downtown community for Redding’s Best Downtown Business Award. The company— nominated by its own employees—also received Shasta County’s Best Place to Work in Shasta County award. Development Group, Inc., recently hired its 20th employee. This is a noteworthy accomplishment, Eatmon says, “considering we started off in my partner’s parents’ living room four years ago.” • Shannon Rooney is the wilderness-loving, cultural experienceseeking, proud mama of a four-year-old miniature poodle named Blue, who is learning how to serve as a pet therapy service dog.

pinch me! m t. S h as ta mus i c i ans t i f t an d s c o t t The town of Mount Shasta is dominated by the magnificent, snow-capped beauty of its 14,179-foot namesake. Maybe it’s the creative influence of the mountain, the sparkling lakes, bubbling streams or the lush forests, but among the town’s citizens is an incredible collection of talented artists, writers and musicians. Among this gifted group is the acoustic musical duo of Leslie Tift and Tom Scott, who recently achieved national recognition. Tift and Scott describe their music as “Americana” and “new folk,” but their complex style of guitar and dobro and lovely harmonies leave no doubt that this not your grandfather’s folk. Tom effortlessly weaves original guitar leads around Leslie’s dobro or guitar, all the while sweetly harmonizing songs about life and love. The variety of their music ranges from modern folk to smart county swing to traditional tunes with a contemporary sound. “We do folk to torch tunes to the Carter Family and everything in between,” Scott says. “Our music crosses many generations.” The pair played local venues for several years, but Tift says that after the 2010 release of their first CD, “Up On Cedar Ridge,” the invitations to play a variety of venues began to arrive. From an initial offer to play at Artichoke Music in Portland, they began to get requests to perform along the West Coast. “It was like a dream come true,” Tift says of the rash of invitations. “I would think, ‘pinch me’ to see if it was really happening. “We played a series of house concerts in Santa Cruz, Los Gatos, Grants Pass, Humboldt and in Mount Shasta,” Tift says. “House concerts are one of our favorite venues to play. It’s continued on page 64 JUNE 2013 ENJOY | 63

intimate and you share the emotions with your audience.” Adds Scott: “You make good friends. It’s like having an extended family.” Although they play as a duo for most of their performances, “Up On Cedar Ridge” includes a highly talented group of back-up musicians that include pedal steel, mandolin, percussion, banjo, fiddle, bass, clarinet and cello masterfully recorded and produced by Blue Dragon Studios in Mount Shasta. When they began to get radio air play, the reality of their success really began to sink in. “We hear our songs on JPR, and we’ve been played on stations in Portland, Seattle and Chico,” Tift says. “When we heard we had air time on a West Virginia station, it was another ‘pinch me’ moment.” Scott writes most of their original material, and he says he writes with “my heart on my sleeve.”

“I don’t know where it comes from, but I write a lot about love,” Tom says. “Love is really important.” The pair are hard at work, with six songs laid down on their second CD, also recorded at Blue Dragon Studios. “We have a lot of fun,” says Blue Dragon founder and owner Terry Lawhon. “They are easy to work with and we have come to trust each other.” The feeling is mutual. “Terry is a joy to work with,” Tift says. “He has become a good friend.” Through it all, the pair have retained a respect for their music and a humble appreciation for their fans. “Every little piece of this musical journey makes me overflow with gratitude,” Tift says. Scott also has a reverence for their success. “I am humbled when complete strangers ask me when our new CD is coming out,” he says. “When I hear people singing the words along with us when we perform, the hairs stand up on my arms.” If the success of “Up On Cedar Ridge” is any indication, the new CD may just send Tift and Scott to a whole new level of recognition. Pinch me, anyone? •

“Every little piece of this musical journey makes me overflow with gratitude,” Tift says.

The folks who save lives in Mercy Medical Center Redding’s emergency department every day knew their overcrowded workspace desperately needed an overhaul. So they pitched in a half-million dollars of their own money to help make it happen. “The hospital graciously agreed to make the emergency department expansion a priority, and we knew we had to be a part of it,” says emergency physician Pamela Ikuta. “It’s that ‘put your money where your mouth is’ kind of thing. We’re not just the doctors in the ER. We are members of this community. We all live here. Our kids go to school here. We go to church here. It’s absolutely essential to provide the very best care that we can, and it wasn’t an option not to support it wholeheartedly.” The four-phase project, which will be complete this month, increases the emergency department from 22 beds (most separated by curtains) to 30 larger, private rooms, allowing patients to be seen more quickly and comfortably. The rooms are outfitted with state-of-the-art technology and soothing artwork. “It’s really built around the patient,” says Rob Barth, director of emergency services. A 4,165-square-foot expansion, a remodel of nearly 12,000 square feet and a variety of other upgrades will enable the emergency department to accommodate up to 66,000 patients per year. The old facility was designed for 44,000, but about 55,000 people visit the emergency department annually. Mercy’s Level II Trauma Center serves Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, Trinity, Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Plumas and Sierra counties — nearly a quarter of California’s land mass. The $18.5 million project was funded by Dignity Health and Mercy Foundation North, a philanthropic organization sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy. More than a third of the $1.5 million raised by the foundation was donated by the “Mercy family” of employees and physicians. continued on page 68

“They rose to the occasion and completely funded the portion we needed to raise. It shows the heart of people in the North State,” Barth says.

Left to right: Tammy Joiner, RN, Joshua Rowe, RN, Heidi Emry, RN, Char Phipps, RN, Dr. Jesse Wells, Medical Director

Those donations were critical to the campaign’s success, Barth says. “When you go to the community and you ask them to partner with you in the way of a donation, the first thing they want to know is, the people who are working there, are they doing something? We could say, ‘Yes, they are, to the tune of half a million dollars because they believe in the project.’” Some donated in cash, while others traded in their vacation time. “Some said, ‘I’d really like to give - I don’t have any extra money, but I have a lot of time built up.’ They were still able to contribute and enjoy that same satisfaction of people who were able to put down large sums of money,” Barth says. Surgeon Patrick Fowler donated not only because he practices at Mercy, but because he was a patient there after he broke his neck skiing in Lake Tahoe. “I needed to have urgent surgery and they wanted to airlift me to Reno, but my faith in the trauma system at Mercy led me back there,” Fowler says. Mark Korth, president of Dignity Health North State and Mercy Medical Center Redding, says, “The funds raised through employee and physician giving have not only made a big financial impact, it is an endorsement for the critical need to ensure quality health care to the communities Mercy Medical Center Redding serves.” 68 | Enjoy JUNE 2013

A bonus: Most of the project was completed by local carpenters, electricians, estimators, architects and subcontractors, says Rodger Page, Mercy’s senior director of support services and physician recruitment. “It’s been pretty neat. As we were building, we’d get input from staff and other people, and we were able to tweak and modify it better than the original design,” says Page, who was born at Mercy. “It was really exciting and fun to do.” The Mercy team thanked community members who contributed to the project. “They rose to the occasion and completely funded the portion we needed to raise. It shows the heart of people in the North State,” Barth says. Says Jesse Wells, medical director of the emergency department: “We now have everything we need to deliver world-class care for the North State.” Ikuta concludes, “I feel like we came from the Flintstones into the Jetsons. It’s awesome.” •

the cowgirl jubilee at the inter-mountain fairgrounds in McArthur Pam McBroome has spent 10 years on the road selling western décor and cowgirl bling and has noticed something about the people she’s met along the way. “I just meet women everywhere and lots of them want to camp and do things,” she says. McBroome and a group of friends have taken this insight and combined it with a desire to support the Inter-Mountain Fairgrounds to create the first Cowgirl Jubilee, a “festival for the outdoor woman” and a chance for all women to bring out their inner cowgirl in a weekend of outdoor activities, horse business and camping. “One morning I woke up and realized that we need to have a cowgirl event,” says McBroome. “It’s such a great thing to get out

with your girlfriends, to get out and have fun. This valley is perfect for something like that.” Indeed, the group of organizers is going out of its way to highlight all of the gems of the Inter-Mountain Valley, including fishing, golfing, trail riding and kayaking. While she is quick to rattle off the many offerings of the area, she also recognizes that some participants may just want to settle in at base camp, the Inter-Mountain Fairgrounds in McArthur. “They don’t even have to leave the fairgrounds if they don’t want to because we’re going to have everything for them right there,” she says.

There will be music by Adrian “Buckaroogirl” and the Buck Ford Band, medieval jousting and trick roping by Karen Quest of Cowgirl Tricks, a Vaudeville-style Western comedy act. “We’re going to have a big showing of our youth,” she says, noting that local 4-H and FFA members are prepared to serve meals and assist guests. The event is open to the public but will also be a gathering spot for Sisters on the Fly, a group of women who live by the motto “we have more fun than anyone” and caravan in vintage trailers to outdoor events around the country. “These little trailers, in my opinion, say to women, ‘Freedom. Go out and explore and be independent.’” says McBroome, a member of the group. The Cowgirl Jubilee includes a raffle of a 1956 Crown trailer completely restored by Karen Brunk of Anderson. It is decorated to the nines in vintage cowgirl décor and will make an instant Sister on the Fly of the lucky winner. Only 500 of the $50 tickets will be sold for a chance to win this vintage beauty. Proceeds from the Cowgirl Jubilee benefit the Inter-Mountain Fair Heritage Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded in 2009 to support the Inter-Mountain Fairgrounds, a gathering spot for the inter-mountain community. “We call it the heartbeat of the valley because of the activities that happen there throughout the seasons,” says Elena Albaugh, president of the Inter-Mountain Fair Heritage Foundation. She notes that the fairgrounds is the weekly host to everything from weddings to funerals

to fundraisers and competitions. “Everybody uses that fairgrounds,” she says. With the Cowgirl Jubilee, organizers hope to bring more women from outside the valley to experience everything the Inter-Mountain area has to offer. There will be plenty of opportunities to be pampered, but there will also be challenges to face, whether in the arena, on the golf course, or out on the water in a kayak or with a fly rod. The camaraderie of other women will encourage stepping out on a limb to try something new. As Albaugh says, “You don’t really have to be a cowgirl to enjoy the outdoors, to enjoy watching horses perform, or to watch a cowboy band perform.” If it’s true, however, that every woman has an inner cowgirl, there’s no better place than the Inter-Mountain Valley and Fairgrounds to let her loose to play. “You’re not clear up in the woods, but you’re in the country. And it’s beautiful country,” adds McBroome. • Cowgirl Jubilee • June 27-30 • Inter-Mountain Fairgrounds, McArthur

what’s on tap at the redding alehouse When Robert Martinez opened the Redding Alehouse on Hilltop Drive about five years ago, he knew he needed to establish his own identity. He was moving into the space formerly occupied by the Red, White and Brew — a well-worn pub with a loyal following. Out came the old wooden church pews, making way for a complete remodel that included a larger bar and a functional refrigerated room. More importantly, however, Martinez ushered in his passion for highend beer and a vast, ever-changing selection of brews. He established a scene for true beer aficionados. The Alehouse has 23 taps flowing at all times and rotates through as many as 450 different varieties of beer a year.

“The key to our success has been being true to what we are,” Martinez explains. “There’s a lot of beer talk here. We get people coming in from all over. They know to come here for something that’s really good.” It turns out that beer drinking can be just as high-end a culinary experience as wine drinking. In the winter months, the selections gravitate toward darker offerings like porters, stouts and barleywines. In the summer, lighter varieties begin to appear. At any given time, the Alehouse has four or five selections of IPAs (India Pale Ales), an extremely popular style in Northern California and beyond. The hoppy ale has its origins in the mid-18th century, continued on page 76 JUNE 2013 ENJOY | 75

“There’s a lot of beer talk here. We get people coming in from all over. They know to come here for something that’s really good.” when English sailing ships would export the brew to India. On June 7-8, the Alehouse will host an IPA Festival that will include 20 varieties of IPAs on tap and another 10 in bottles. Participants will receive a special glass designed to “open up” the hops of the beer. Tickets are $35 for one day or $50 for both, and the event will include acoustic music. In addition, the establishment regularly holds specialty events for women who want to increase their knowledge of beer and expand their palates. Alehouse server Lindsie Lefort will lead the next women’s tasting on June 1. “I don’t want (women) to feel intimidated when they walk into a bar,” says Lefort. “I want them to have a beer backbone. I want them to know the styles and know their beers. Having me lead it probably helps because it’s not as intimidating. They can approach me with any question.” At the Alehouse, the names of the beers, breweries and alcohol by volume (ABV) percentage appear on a huge chalkboard behind the bar. Martinez has developed relationships with distributors who help him bring in a wide assortment of craft selections. Some of the breweries the pub features include Lagunitas, Mad River, Russian River, Stone, Deschutes, Mendocino, Firestone Walker, Rogue and many others. The Alehouse also typically has at least one tap devoted to Redding’s new Wildcard Brewery. “They do have beers for aficionados, but they’re not haughty or snooty about it,” explains Ben Moulton, who has been enjoying the Alehouse for the past three years. “They’re so humble in their approach. They’re very knowledgeable and they’re ready and willing to help you find a beer that fits your palate. I like quality, and they have quality taps.” Martinez, who owns the pub with his wife Shellie, is a native of San Jose who has been living in the North State for 13 years. “What I enjoy is that you can have a guy in a leather vest and a guy in a suit and they’re talking and having a great time,” Martinez says. “They have nothing in common except beer. It’s what everyone has in common here. It’s pretty fun.” • IPA Festival • June 7-8, Redding Alehouse 2181 Hilltop Drive, Redding Featuring 20 varieties of IPAs on tap and another 10 in bottles Tickets $35 for one day, $50 for both; includes a special glass and acoustic music

Secret c Garden S pr i ng H i l l N ursery an d G ar d ens

The sun dances over young trees in pots, which watch eagerly as people pull into the parking lot of the Spring Hill Nursery and Gardens. Large conifers tower in the background over their smaller cousins as young children, parents and garden enthusiasts come to adopt plants for their yards and gardens. A blue Stellar Jay hops among the trees, chirping as if greeting guests. People grab the worn handles of flat carts, entering through the vine-covered beams of the archway onto the curling paths of the two-acre expanse. From her wood cabin counter, Katie Jessup smiles and welcomes her customers. Bushes and flowers beam from small antique rail flat cars, as shelves of ground cover spiral above them. Baby vegetables grow in a nearby greenhouse, while wind chimes sing to them as a warm summer breeze causes each plant to wave to catch the attention of passersby. “This is my 17th year here,” Jessup says. “I wanted to

go to where I felt at home and that brought me here to Mount Shasta.” She found a distressed property, which had been the residence of a pot-bellied pig. “He had made holes in the house. There were no plants growing above the level of his head. The property was desolate.” After eight months, the home and grounds were transformed. “I’ve been happy to be here ever since,” Jessup says. The enchanted garden grows all around Jessup, forming the backyard of her home. Dragons, bears and wild cats peer from their stone faces at the pathways. Roses await their blooms. A white fir shades the deck at the back of the wood cabin, where benches invite conversation in the shade. “Most of our plants come from Oregon,” Jessup says. “They are heartier and a good match for our area.” Deer-resistant plants are available to help people live with the wildlife and enjoy both together. continued on page 80

The nursery is divided into individual gardens, giving a sense of how the plants might look in another setting. The edible section spills past the herbs to an area of berries. Orchard trees line up in attention. A bouquet garden offers a place to cut and carry away fresh flowers. Fair trade items decorate the nursery, adding to the allure. Workshops are offered throughout the season. Weddings, choral performances and music groups find their place here. Community events find refuge. “People come here to look for plants,” Jessup says. “We try to give them an experience, listen to them. It’s about more than learning plants. We want to create a passion for nature in one’s yard.” Jessup’s enthusiasm spreads beyond her own location. Every year she sponsors a garden tour. “There really is a desire here to be part of the community and individual lives,” she says. The garden tour benefits the local library, and every year, five to seven gardens are featured. “These are often the hidden gems of Mount Shasta,” she says. Private and community gardens are highlighted. In the past, the Community Peace Garden, the Catholic Church Garden and the Forest Service Nature Garden have been parts of the event. The eighth tour is planned for June 22, and enthusiasts can make a donation, pick up their maps at the nursery and walk through the magic growing around them throughout the city. Walking over the stepping stones, smelling the freshness of flowers and watching the kaleidoscope of color reminds the visitor of an abundant life. As a sign in the garden reads: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago...the second best time is today.” • Spring Hill Nursery and Gardens 1234 Nixon Road, Mount Shasta Hours: 9 am - 5 pm Monday through Saturday, 10 am - 4 pm Sunday (open from the end of March through October) Garden tour: 10 am - 3 pm June 22

HEIR APPARENT TH E A N TI Q U E D R A G O N ’ S HI S TO R Y A N D T R E A S U R E S It’s not every day you meet a knight in Redding, California, or anywhere else in the world, for that matter. But if you were to walk into The Antique Dragon on Park Marina Drive and talk to Dr. Carl Vincent, you would be having a conversation with a man who has been inducted into knighthood for his bravery. Vincent doesn’t consider himself a hero for having saved some young Russian Orthodox believers so many years ago from an unimaginable fate. He simply did what he felt needed to be done at that time. Though he prefers to keep the details private, his decision to follow his heart changed the course of several lives, some of whom are still alive to tell about it.

This experience is one of Vincent’s many amazing adventures. After moving to China when he was 6, living there for nearly 20 years, and earning a degree in science from the Jesuit College of Shanghai, he was forced to flee China in 1940 and was stranded in the Philippines for three years, at the height of World War II. After returning to the United States in 1943, he attended Yale University and graduated with a degree in engineering. But his passion remained in traveling and unearthing the histories and artifacts of people throughout the world, which he spent many years doing before returning home to California. continued on page 84 JUNE 2013 ENJOY | 83

There he studied Japanese art at both the University of California at Los Angeles and the University of Southern California, and he went on to teach art, history, antiques and philosophy for the next 30 years before retiring to Northern California. At 96 years young, he still strives to learn about each new piece he encounters. He is writing a fourth book, which will focus on Chinese Jade. It’s no wonder that with such an incredible family history, Tanya Vincent, Vincent’s daughter and the owner of The Antique Dragon in Redding, is able to say that she was “born into the world of antiques.” She has spent much of her life traveling the country with her father, attending antique fairs and expos and perusing antique shops, soaking up his passion and expertise along the way. She holds a bachelor’s degree in fine art, degrees in antique dealership and antique business, and a license in antique appraisals from The Asheford Institute of Antiques. She chose to complete her internship for her licensure in San Francisco under several experts, rather than to study exclusively under her father’s tutelage, so her clients would recognize the diverse scope of her experience and perspective. In September 2012, Tanya opened her own storefront. The Antique Dragon, a fitting combination of “the beauty of yesterday” and the fact that Tanya was born in the Year of the Dragon, specializes in Asian-inspired art and antique appraisal services, but is home to a variety of vintage and antiques through a diverse collection of antique dealers who have their merchandise available at her store. A walk through The Antique Dragon is a wonderful walk through time and space, beginning somewhere around 206 B.C. in China’s Han Dynasty and ending somewhere in the 1980s in America. The Vincent family owns a Han Dynasty Jade Burial Suit, one of only 18 in the known world. Tanya strives to offer something different to her clientele—a museum-like experience without the admission fee. Tanya and her father are the perfect curators, infinitely knowledgeable and passionate about their pieces. In addition to finding Tanya and her dad at The Antique Dragon seven days a week, you can find them at the Red Bluff Antique

Street Faire in October. The family also maintains three booths at Oregon Street Antique Mall in downtown Redding. The Vincents and their team of experts offer their appraisal services up and down the West Coast to non-profits, with the appraisal fee being donated entirely to the non-profit organization. Tanya also presents lectures to schoolchildren and brings in pieces for them to explore in an effort to impart knowledge and passion for art and history to their young minds. Tanya knows first-hand how to share her love for community, art, history and antiques. She learned from a passionate teacher, who just happens to be her dad. • 2645 Park Marina Drive • (530) 949-6691 Kimberly N. Bonéy, proud wife and mother, moved to Redding in 2008.

The Bonds of Baseball

by Billy Pilgrim “I’ve played, I’ve coached and I’ve worked in minor league baseball. I grew up a Dodgers fan, loved the Padres when I lived in San Diego and have clutched the Giants to my heart since 1979.”

It was my Uncle Joe who taught me the game that forever influenced my life and brings me such great joy today. My Uncle Joe in Lorain, Ohio, who, because of a bad bout with polio, had one leg significantly shorter than the other, had me fielding grounders and taking batting practice at the age of 5. My Uncle Joe Katkic gave me the gift of baseball. My father was in medical school and had no time for sports or even a game of catch. Not because he didn’t want to, but because there was no time. So my Uncle Joe took me under his wing and off to the park in the afternoon for practice - running around on his shortened leg, kind of bobbing up and down and encouraging me to “catch with both hands.” I would go into the basement of the family home on 33rd Street, and next to the vat of fermenting grapes (they made their own wine) and across the floor from where my grandmother would slaughter chickens for Sunday dinner, Uncle Joe would encourage me to swing the bat over and over and over again until I was exhausted... and baseball was in my blood forever. My first major league baseball game was in the company of Uncle Joe — Cleveland Municipal Stadium — I was maybe 7 years old. I walked through the tunnel and into the park and was overwhelmed by the greenest grass and brownest infield I had ever seen. And I knew at that moment, I’d found heaven in Cleveland. I’ve played, I’ve coached and I’ve worked in minor league baseball. I grew up a Dodgers fan, loved the Padres when I lived in San Diego, and have clutched the Giants to my heart since 1979. I met Barry Bonds at a mini-mart in Redding a few years ago and I am happy to report he was the nicest guy in the world. Our meeting was meant to be, orchestrated by the baseball gods. His baseball card is on our refrigerator, as is J.T. Snow’s, and we treasure our Will Clark card and Barry Zito’s Facebook page. But most importantly, I’ve been able to pass this wonderful game on to my family, my kids, our listeners—inviting all to enter the Church of Baseball, where the foul lines go to infinity and beyond. Join us any evening at Softball Park, Alta Mesa, K-2 or Big League Dreams. You’ll probably find someone in our family playing, hitting grounders, running a snack bar, coaching or keeping score (though not all at the same time). Four generations of baseball/softball activists beginning with my Uncle Joe Katkic of Lorain, Ohio, and the Cleveland Indians loving life. Thank you, Uncle Joe, for moving beyond your physical disability, for showing me the way and for giving me something constant and beautiful to enjoy. God bless baseball and Barry Bonds, and go Giants!

Serve up this cayenne spiced steak with a tangy and cooling chimichurri sauce, traditionally served with asado-style meats. The sauce is garlicky, full of herbal flavors and works well the richness and fattiness of a ribeye steak, and it provides a great visual contrast of bright green against the deep red meat. (Skirt steak is also a good choice for stretching the main course, as it grills up beautifully and, when sliced, allows for multiple servings.) If the distinct taste and fragrance of cilantro is not your favorite, try it with parsley instead. The fresh citrus juice is an excellent addition in the sauce and will add great flavor to your plate of grilled vegetables and favorite potato or quinoa side dish.

Spicy Grilled Steak with Chimichurri Sauce serves 4 to 6 SAUCE ingredients 2 cups lightly packed fresh cilantro 4 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped 1 shallot, coarsely chopped 1 T fresh oregano 1 tsp. kosher salt 1 tsp. fresh ground pepper ½ tsp crushed red pepper ¼ cup fresh squeezed lime or lemon juice 2 T dry red wine 2 T red wine vinegar ¾ cup olive oil plus more for brushing grill

GRILLED STEAK ingredients 2 T kosher salt ½ - 1 tsp. cayenne pepper, depending on heat desired 4 – 8 oz. ribeye steaks or 2 lbs. skirt steak, if a sliced steak variation is desired

PREPARATION For the Sauce 1 | In a food processor or blender, combine the cilantro, chopped garlic cloves, shallot, oregano

leaves, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, lime or lemon juice, red wine, and the red wine vinegar. Pulse or blend while drizzling the olive oil in until the mixture is a coarse puree. Taste, adjust seasoning and blend again. Set aside. PREPARATION For the Steak 1 | Mix together the salt and cayenne in a small bowl. Liberally season both sides of each steak. 2 | Preheat grill to high (450-500 degrees). Brush grill with olive oil and place the steaks on the hot grill. Close the lid and wait for 3 minutes. Turn the steaks and cook another 3-4 minutes or until desired doneness is reached. Remove the steaks from the grill and cover with foil for 5-10 minutes. Serve with chimichurri sauce on the side or spoon over the top of each steak. 3 | If grilling skirt steak, follow above instructions and grill until medium rare, 2-4 minutes per side

depending on thickness, being careful not to overcook. Remove the steak from the grill and cover with foil for at least 5 minutes. Slice the skirt steak across the grain with a knife at a 45-degree angle. Arrange on a serving platter and serve with chimichurri sauce spooned over the sliced steak. The extra sauce is served on the side. Prep: 15 minutes; GRILL TIME: 20-25 minutes

ENJOY: Tell us about your products. Karol: We have three pepper sauces – original, sweet habanero and spicy cranberry. Those are the mother sauces of our barbecue sauces, which use the same flavors, but we’ve blended them with a Sierra Nevada Brewery ale and a Sierra Nevada Brewery mustard to make a barbecue sauce. For example, our original barbecue sauce is our original Paradise Pepper Sauce blended with Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Pale Ale Mustard. Vince: The unique thing is that they are pureed. They are exploding with flavor from the ale, mustards and pepper sauce. It makes them sweet and spicy. ENJOY: What is a pepper sauce? Karol: Pepper sauces are similar to pepper jelly, but we call them sauces because the spectrum of things that people would use jelly on is more limited. People think about putting pepper jellies on cream cheese. You wouldn’t think to use them on ribs, sandwiches, cheesecake, lamb, chili beans – the versatility of our sauces is that you can use them on all of these things and a lot more. ENJOY: How did this journey begin? Karol: I love to spend time creating recipes and preparing delicious food for friends and family. In the early 1980s, I rented a building in Santa Cruz, put in a kitchen, and opened a wholesale bakery. After several years, I left the profession to explore other opportunities, but my passion for creating new recipes and indulging my friends and family never diminished. I have always been a fan of sweet and spicy; it’s perfect with so many foods. Every Christmas, I would make dozens of jars of pepper sauce to give as gifts to family and friends. It did not take them long to realize that this wonderful

sauce was so versatile that they could use it on everything. Finally, in 2009, we began producing Paradise Pepper Sauce right here in Chico. Later, Ryne Johnson and his company were instrumental in connecting us with Ken Grossman and Sierra Nevada Brewery, and they’ve allowed us to use their products and to put their logo on our products. ENJOY: What’s next for your business? Karol: We are getting ready to introduce a hotter version of our barbecue and pepper sauces – Ghost Fire Barbecue Sauce, which is made from chocolate habanero and ghost pepper, and Angry CranCot, which is made from chocolate habanero, cranberry and apricot – it’s a spicier version of our cranberry pepper sauce. We’ve taken them to events to sample and people love them. They’re pleasing to the palate and packed with flavor. ENJOY: What is your philosophy? Karol: We take pride in using California-grown, quality ingredients for our products. We make small, three-gallon batches to ensure quality and superior taste in every jar. We’re very particular about how we make our products and how they’re delivered to the customer. It’s a joy going to events and having people try our sauce, and they say, “We’ve never tasted anything like this before – it’s so good.” ENJOY: Why do people enjoy your products so much? Vince: Our sauces are very versatile and unique. There’s a lot of love put into these. The barbecue sauces will rock your world. Karol: For Valentine’s Day, a candy maker used them in truffles, and a local baker put them in chocolate cupcakes. It’s neat to see other people use them in creations of their own.

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart.” ~Helen Keller

In 2010, the downtown Red Bluff Business Association began “Food from the Heart” as a community project to help feed their local hungry. For two weeks in February, businesses collected canned food and dry goods to be donated to Tehama County Food Bank to be distributed. It was a huge success and “Food from the Heart” became an annual event. In its second year, “Food from the Heart” generated 8,000 pounds of food for the local hungry. In 2012, this project went citywide and 77 businesses stepped up and collected more than 4,000 pounds of food. Realizing that it took $3,700 in donated advertising to collect the 4,000 pounds and wanting to provide the most nutritious food possible and help the most people, the Downtown Red Bluff Business Association turned “Food from the Heart” over to The Community Action Agency and Tehama County Food Share. Through these agencies, 100 pounds of food can be purchased for $18 and Food from the Heart became a FUND drive.

get involved: The Gold Exchange has partnered with The Community Action Agency and Tehama County Food Share to take the Food from the Heart FUND drive county wide. They are seeking 250 generous Tehama County businesses to display a collection jar June 16 - 30 and commit to raising $100 for the purchase of food. All funds raised will be evenly distributed throughout participating Tehama County hunger relief charities to buy food.
