L.A. band walks the line to honor Johnny Cash
n Jan. 13, 1968, Johnny Cash took his band and a couple of opening acts to Folsom State Prison to record two shows. As a result, Cash’s album, “At Folsom Prison,” was recorded and it remains a popular part of Folsom’s history. On the 45th anniversary weekend of Cash’s recording at Folsom Prison, Los Angeles based tribute band The Walking Phoenixes will come to Folsom for a special performance honoring the late Johnny Cash. The band will perform at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 12, at Three Stages Performing Arts Center in Folsom. Drewin Young, 34, will portray Cash as the band’s lead singer with the band alongside him including Jared Miller, 33, on bass; Gregg Karagianis, 26, on lead guitar; and Nick Ineck, 30, on drums. “We are carrying on Johnny Cash’s tradition of humanitarian work,” Young said. “When people hear ‘tribute band,’ they imagine we are imitating. We are not imitating, we are interpreting him.” According to Young, the band hopes to perform for inmates at the Greystone Chapel at Folsom Prison as a special tribute to the 45th anniversary recording. The band was working on the details with prison officials for the performance when the Entertainer went to press. “This reality is euphoric for us to play for the

inmates on the same day that Johnny Cash played here 45 years ago,” Young said. While the planned performance at Folsom

Prison would be closed to the public, their Jan. 12 show at Three Stages will be open for concert goers. “The audience can expect a fun, interactive show at Three Stages,” Young said. “People will want to get up and dance.

Our shows are very highenergy. We have a modern approach to his sound, but it’s still enjoyable for all ages.” The bandmates said putting on the suit gives them a sense of responsibility. “There is a respect with

putting on the black suit,” Young said. “We have a responsibility to act a certain way. That transformation has really changed us as performers. We are trying to do the Lord’s work the best that we can — and Johnny Cash is our vessel.”

The band is also looking forward to spending some time in Folsom. “Folsom is just so kind and accepting,” Young said. “Everyone has a sense of pride in their town’s history. I’m making music for a purpose. We love playing for anyone, anywhere. When the love is there, anything is possible.” For more information and tickets, visit threestages.net.

Cindy Williams returns to Folsom

“Nunset Boulevard,” starring Cindy Williams, center, is the latest chapter in the series of “Nunsense” musicals performed at Three Stages for three nights in January.

he Little Sisters of Hoboken take off on their newest “Nunsense” adventure, this time heading to Tinseltown, this time starring a well-known TV personality. “Nunset Boulevard,” starring Cindy Williams, is the latest chapter in the series of “Nunsense” musicals. The Sisters are on their way to perform at the Hollywood Bowl, or so they believe – it’s actually the Hollywood Bowl-A-Rama. In the musical, performed at Three Stages in Folsom, the women learn of auditions for a new musical about Dolores Hart, the famous movie star who kissed Elvis and then became a nun. The show has been described by ABC News as, “hilarious, wacky and unpredictable.” Writer/director Dan Goggin explained why the show was created. “I met Mother Dolores Hart about 15 years ago at the Abbey of Regina Laudis, when we were presenting ‘Nunsense Jamboree’ at a nearby theater,” Goggin said.

“We became instant friends and have been in contact ever since. She has admitted to being our ‘biggest fan’ and loves the ‘Nunsense’ shows. In writing ‘Nunset Boulevard’ I wanted to figure out a way to involve the nuns in the ‘Hollywood scene’ and thought the idea of a movie about Dolores Hart was perfect. Talk about life imitating art, not only has Mother Dolores made a trip back to Hollywood with the new film special on HBO, she is writing a book about her life and there is conversation about eventually turning the book into a movie. And you thought I made all this up.” The show will feature Williams, who played Shirley Feeney to Penny Marshall’s Laverne De Fazio in the TV series, “Laverne & Shirley.” “I was involved in ‘Nunsense’ 1 and 2 and these are the same characters,” Williams said. “It’s a bunch of fun playing these characters. There are fabulous performers in the show. The other four girls are just fabulous performers – And it’s always a pleasure to work for Danny.” While Williams is excited to perform in Three Stages, this is not her first visit to Folsom. Williams, who played Ron Howard’s girlfriend in George Lucas’ 1973 classic ‘American Graffiti,’ came to Folsom before as part of a Cappuccino Cruiser night featuring the movie. “I’m looking forward to seeing the town again,” she said. “I spoke to someone and just heard wonderful things about Three Stages. We will be there for three days, so I’m sure there will be a lot of sightseeing.” When asked what her most memorable work was, she said she couldn’t

But with ‘Laverne & Shirley,’ it was a lot of fun,” she said. “It was a privilege to just make people laugh every show.” Now with her recent work on stage, she is also enjoying her time. “I was a theater arts major — I wanted to be on stage,” she said. “Now I get to do this for a living. At one point I was waiting tables and now I’m living out my dream.” She said the show will bring people a lot of laughs and help bring in their new year with a smile. “The community will get to come together and laugh together,” Williams said. “There is a lot of audience involvement so it’s fun to watch your neighbor get up on stage and laugh with them. It’s just a fun night to enjoy with your neighbors. I hope everyone comes out to see the show and enjoys themselves.

More than 130 middle and high school jazz bands, vocal groups and combos from California and Nevada will compete. Music Director for Folsom High school, Curtis Gaesser, has been teaching music for 29 years. He said the talent, not only at his school, but at the completion is outstanding. “More than 130 groups will perform in one day,” he said. “About 40 professionals come in to judge the event.” More than 2,500 kids and about 5,000 parents are expected. Last year’s event raised $500,000, Gaesser said. “This money helps pay for the kids that can’t afford a musical education.” Special guest musicians will grace the stages throughout the day. The Collective will play a noon concert at Three Stages, at Folsom Lake College, on the main stage. The Collective features trumpeter Larry Engstrom, pianist David Ake, bassist Hans Halt, drummer Andrew Heglund and saxophonist

Dann Zinn is a world class musician, known for his brilliant saxophone and flute playing, stunning compositions, and contribution to music education in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. Hailed as a “guru,” Zinn has said he finds beauty in making music comes from constant reinventing and searching. Music enthusiast Marie Rojas said although she doesn’t have a student in the competition, she plans on attending. “This is one of those events that is just fun to be a part of,” she said. “I enjoy seeing the up-andcoming musicians.

I have caught some of the shows put on by this local theatrical group and I’ve never been disappointed. In January, catch “Suite Surrender,” penned by Michael McKeever, at the historic State Theater in Auburn. The story is set in 1942 and the “luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel is under siege as two of Hollywood’s biggest divas vie for the same suite. Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres and one pampered little lap dog round out this … comedy,” according to the show’s website. One actress of note is Krissi Khokhobashvili, playing Dora del Rio, a gossip columnist. Why do I point her out? Because she just happens to be the editor of the Rocklin Placer Herald, the oldest newspaper in the state, and used to toil at the Auburn Journal as their features editor. Prior to those posts, she worked at a fish wrapper in Amador County. She certainly has acting experience, with productions in the Amador area.

For the kid in all of us, check out “Disney’s The Little Mermaid” running 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 11-20. Tickets are $10 for general admission, $8 for students and seniors. For more information, visit rocklintheatre.org.

Revisit the 70s with a production of “Schoolhouse Rock Live.” I n this musical, “we meet Tom Mizer, a young teacher, as he anxiously prepares for his first day of school. Attempting to calm his fears, he turns on the television to find the educational cartoon show we all know and love, Schoolhouse Rock. ... Tom gets drawn in and soon the teacher is sucked into the television show. We meet a slew of colorful personalities as the entire company tries to comfort him and prepare him for his first day. Featuring many crowdpleasing favorites, such as ‘Conjunction Junction’ and ‘Interplanet Janet,’ this musical is sure to entertain the entire community,” according to the organizers. The show runs 2 p.m. Saturdays Jan. 19-Feb. 9. There are two special noon matinees Jan. 19 and Jan. 26. Tickets are $8 for all seats. Learn more at rosevilletheatreartsacademy.com.

“Driving Miss Daisy,” by Alfred Uhry, is the show hitting the stage at this Carmichael theater. “Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize, “Driving Miss Daisy” tells the postWorld War II story of a rich, sharp-tongued Jewish widow who meets her new black chauffeur. Over a series of absorbing scenes spanning 25 years, the two grow to have one of theatre’s most unlikely friendships. This classic is filled with wit and wisdom, and explores the importance of tolerance and love,” according to organizers. This is produced in association with Celebration Arts and features James Wheatley as “Hoke” and Janice ReadeHoberg as “Miss Daisy.” Admission is $19, students and seniors (and SARTA) are $17, while group discounts (20 people or more) are $16.

FOLSOM LAKE ENTERTAINER

Lots of options to get fit in 2013
A
s a new year begins, many can find their favorite healthy plan to getting fit. Rather than doing it on your own, Folsom offers a variety of classes and methods to exercise socially – while having fun. For men and women martial arts can be not only a stress relief, but also a good work out. Jason Froehlich, 39, of El Dorado Hills, owns Folsom Martial Arts Center at 25075 Blue Ravine Road in Folsom. “I am here to help people loose weight and gain confidence,” Froehlich said. “I take in account every student’s physical needs. I will work individually for each student in my group. I know it seems intimidating, but it’s doable. Loosing weight and getting in shape is not easy. I teach a lifestyle and how to make life changes.” The center offers fitness classes for adults called Muay Thai. This group class is geared to get adults in shape while getting out some stress. This class includes kickboxing, leg workouts and boxing elements to provide strength training and improve flexibility while loosing weight. “In this class you are using elements of kickboxing and martial arts – so you are hitting things,” Froehlich said. “Being able to come into this class and hit things is a great stress release. It really calms you down and can gain some inner peace. Then on top releasing some stress, you are exercising and getting stronger.” He said another hidden positive to taking martial arts is it is challenging. “You can learn a lot about yourself,” he said. “It’s challenging – you may learn that you are not as coordinated as you thought you were. Or you may learn that you are stronger than you thought you were. With this challenge, you can learn to overcome life’s challenges through hard work and determination.” He said the best thing to do when coming into a fitness class is to enter the doors with an open mind. “Just come in with the intent to learn,” Froehlich said. “If you come with an open mind, you will gain empowerment and confidence.” As a former marine, Froehlich said he also offers a boot camp for locals wanting to loose the weight and keep it off. “I am guiding people through the same principles of what I went through in the marines,” he said. “You will loose weight and gain confidence.” He added that his bootcamp is not meant to intimidate people, it is meant to lead people into a life change. “I want to see results,” he said. “I won’t yell at you. I will motivate you and inspire you.” For more information on Folsom Martial Arts Center, call (916) 983-3604 or visit folsommartialarts.com. For the dancer in you – Zumba may be a good option for getting fit this season. Pat Dayton, 63, owns Pat’s Zumba studio in Folsom, two Curves locations, in Orangevale and Granite Bay, and is a certified personal trainer, said the only way to stay strong and healthy is to get up and move. “Exercising regularly strengthens your heart muscle, builds bones, increases muscle mass to help increase balance and bone mass and just makes you feel better. When you exercise it creates a feeling a well being. It makes you happy. But if you don’t work hard you won’t get it,” she said. “You need to get healthy – don’t focus on the weight loss focus on getting healthy and fighting chronic illnesses. Look at me, I am 63 and own three buildings and am very healthy, I am going strong.” Zumba is a Latin inspired dance fitness program that blends a workout with international music created by Grammy Award winning producers, Dayton said. “It’s a cardio class and you can burn up to 600 calories in a class,” she said. “You are learning all kinds of dances which makes it very fun. Women love it; they don’t realize they are exercising. It’s a big dance party.” Dayton said the class builds stamina because you are working out for an hour straight.

KEN LARSON • FOLSOM LAKE ENTERTAINER

Jason Froehlich owns Folsom Martial Arts Center. He leads adult fitness classes and a bootcamp to help get people healthy and in shape.
Building this kind of stamina helps you do other things better – like climbing a flight of stairs or other everyday tasks. “It’s fun and interesting because you are learning about a different culture and dances,” she said. “We mix it up so people are dancing a different flavor of dance for each hour class.” Pat’s Zumba studio, in the Robinson’s Taekwondo building, 9580 Oak Ave., in Folsom, offers 10 classes a week and a free hour for your first class. She said each class has an intimate feeling with only 25 people per session. “We know all of our students and we teach to their needs,” she said.

Her zumba studio offers Zumba, Zumba Toning and Zumba Sen Tao, which means to sit. The chair-based choreography of Zumba Sen Tao, strengthens, balances and stabilizes your core, Dayton said. Another option to get fit in the new year is to try out a 30 minute workout at one of her local Curves locations. “Curves and Zumba partnered in 2010 and combine the two types of workouts in 30 minutes,” she said. “We have a lot of fun and we work really hard. We are burning a lot of calories.” Curves’ workouts specialize in strength training, so she said students can have a double workout with the added cardio of Zumba in their 30 minutes. “The most important thing to tell people is you need a variety of workout exercises in a routine,” Dayton said. “You need to include cardio, strength training, stretching and consistency. If you are not consistent you will loose muscle mass in seven days. People are constantly starting over after just one week off, which ultimately means they are not getting results.” Gerri Conlon, 45,

Orangevale, works out in the Zumba class at Curves weekly. “This is such a relaxed class. All you need to do is move your body and try. This is a very supportive and nurturing group. It is a safe zone to practice,” Conlon said. “Since starting my regular workouts, my confidence and self esteem is up. Besides all the health benefits, I’m also having fun because it provides me with social benefits. I have met a lot of good friends and the staff there is supportive, helpful and knowledgeable. I feel blessed that I have started there – it’s such a positive experience.” For more information on Zumba, visit patszumba.com or call (916) 3373613. For more information on Curves, call the Orangevale location at (916) 987-7860 or the Granite Bay location at (916) 789-7822. Maureen Evanoff, fitness director and personal trainer with Broadstone Racquet Club in Folsom, said the center is also a good option for getting in shape this season. “Broadstone Racquet Club has many options available for any fitness

level,” Evanoff said. “We have 22 tennis courts, two racquetball courts, two squash courts, a full size gym for basketball/volleyball, two year-round heated swimming pools and we have two areas for child care for 6 weeks to 6 years and 7 to 17. We also have a group exercise studio, pilates studio, massage therapists and a 7600 square foot area for fitness.” If you’re new to tennis or want to get back into tennis the club offers a “Starters and Restarters” class at 11 a.m. on Jan. 26 and an Adult Beginner Play Day from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Jan. 19. All of their trainers are certified and are veterans in the Fitness Industry, Evanoff said. She said the club will also be offering a variety of new options for small group training coming for 2013. The new classes include a new program called “Breathe - Bend – Build” which focuses on cardiovascular exercise, flexibility/yoga, and strength.

s people are preparing for a fresh start in the new year, they may match their healthy workouts with a natural touch. Revolutions Natural Medical Solutions at 189 Blue Ravine Road, Suite 110, in Folsom, offers science-based alternative therapies administered by medically trained doctors. The clinic opened in 2009 and currently serves 1,200 patients. “This is a specialty medicine,” said Michele Raithel, doctor of naturopathic medicine (ND). Revolutions Natural Medical Solutions has four primary care naturopathic doctors who all focus in different areas of medicine. “Naturopathic doctors are highly trained professionals who practice alternative medicine, treating a broad range of medical conditions,” said

Raithel. According to Raithel, naturopathic doctors are primary care doctors clinically trained in natural therapeutics and whose philosophy is derived in part from a Hippocratic teaching more than 2,000 years old that nature is the healer of all diseases. Raithel said the practice is based on the same basic bio-

medical science foundation that allopathic practice is; however, their philosophies and approaches differ considerably from their conventional counterparts. “No patient will ever be rushed out of our office,” Raithel said. “We will spend as much time as necessary to put together an effective treatment plan to

ensure you receive the best comprehensive care.” She said for a first time client, the doctors will spend 60-90 minutes with the patient to better understand their client as a whole, not just one symptom. Raithel said the doctors work with each patient to establish a custom treatment plan and update the plan based on individual results and feedback. “We use the most up to date diagnostic laboratory testing to assist in diagnosis and treatment and to gauge progress with treatment plans,” she said. Niki Young, ND, focuses on women’s health at Revolutions Natural Medical Solutions. “We treat the cause,” Young said. “As we naturally treat one thing, other things get fixed as well. We look at the person as a whole. We don’t just try to fix one problem. We try to find the root of the problem.” She explained if a person is

experiencing issues with hormone imbalances and anxiety, she will work to fix the imbalances at the source and in return both issues have the potential to be cured. “Natural medicine has been around for thousands of years,” Raithel said. “We now know why these things are working. We understand the scientific reasoning of why natural medicine helps.” These ND doctors all agreed that they want to work as natural medicine doctors, because they want to be able to provide their patients with options and the knowledge to make their own choices. “I hope if someone has lost hope in their medical care, they understand that we are here and offer different options,” Young said. “We don’t offer miracles. But, we offer options. We are honest and open with each patient.”

Explore history at Folsom Prison Museum
BY KEN LARSON AND LAURA NEWELL

FOLSOM LAKE ENTERTAINER

ften my day tripping stories take locals out of the county to favorite museums or hiking trails throughout the region but this month we bring you a day tripping experience that is in your own back yard. And the timing couldn’t be better. Many Folsomites are known for living in the town where thousands of inmates are housed and where Johnny Cash once performed for them. Now with the history of Cash coming back to life in the prison through the work of the The Walking Phoenixes, a Cash tribute band performing in Folsom in January on the 45th anniversary of when Cash recorded at Folsom Prison, the museum is also jumping on the wagon with new and exciting news. The Retired Correctional Peace Officers Museum at Folsom State Prison opened to give people a glance into the life of prisoners and what is found within the walls. After years of being housed in a small houselike location outside the prison front doors, the museum is making plans to build a 35,000square-foot building which will house artifacts, memorabilia, archives, correctional library and historical information from local, state and federal jails and prisons. The proposed Big House Prison Museum will be constructed on the Folsom Prison grounds. No taxpayer money is involved, said Jim Brown, operations manager. Funding will be through private resources and donations. Brown said if everything goes as expected, construction for the new museum could begin in 16 months. Brown said many steps must be undertaken still, including legislative, architectural plans, city approvals, to name a few, will be required. Contact has

been made with many of the entities and all are enthused about the project and recognize the importance of this facility, Brown said. The Folsom Prison museum is a major attraction to the area and with the new facility; it will further educate the public and increase awareness of the correctional system and how it helps to keep communities safe.
Going back in prison history

In 1858, the legislature made a decision to construct a branch prison in California to relieve serious overcrowding at San Quentin. Ten years later, Folsom was selected as the prison site. Construction began

in 1878. Museum officials said, the location offered an unlimited amount of native stone for the construction for the buildings and walls. Also, ample water was available from the American River which formed one natural boundary for the prison. It was also interesting to learn that Folsom is one of the nation’s first maximum security prisons. In 1880 the prison was opened and received its first 44 inmates, the first being Chong Hing who was given cell number one. All inmates were transferred by boat and then by train from San Quentin. Folsom Prison was originally

designed to hold secure custody inmates serving long sentences, habitual criminals and incorrigibles. As a result, museum officials explained, Folsom gained the reputation of having a violent and bloody beginning and history.
New Folsom Prison

The new facility at Folsom received its first inmates on Oct. 1, 1986. The average daily population of the old and new facilities combined is 5,500

inmates. The new prison has not wall, instead it’s surrounded by double chain-link fences with razor wire atop them. Museum officials said the cells are almost twice the size of the old prison cells. The doors and also solid with viewing windows and in the rear of each cell are long narrow windows. For more information on visiting the prison or how to help, call (916) 985-2561 extension 4589.

he former Beer Garden in Folsom is being transformed into Pete’s Restaurant and Brewhouse. The family-style restaurant, at 6608 Folsom Auburn Road, will feature not only pizza and signature beers, but specialty foods, a full bar and the new eatery will offer a delivery service. Sunny Zaighami owned the former Beer Garden for about five months before deciding

T

FOLSOM LAKE ENTERTAINER

that he wanted to own a more family-friendly establishment. The first-time restaurant owner decided to become a franchise owner and chose Pete’s. “I always dreamed about owning a restaurant,” Zaighami said. “I wanted more of a family atmosphere for a restaurant.” The eatery was under construction in mid-December for a transformation that includes new booths, lighting a fairly large bar and outdoor dining

space. The patio in the rear of the establishment backs up to a creek and wooded area. An outdoor bar will be open during the warmer months so guests may enjoy a cold beverage and take in the serenity of the wooded acreage adjacent to the patio. Pete’s has nine other locations including Natomas, Granite Bay and El Dorado Hills. Steve Presson, the founder of Pete’s, said he opened his first location at 2001 J Street in

downtown Sacramento. He was onboard to transform the former Beer Garden into one of his signature restaurants. “This place had more of a pub look before,” Presson said. “We are getting things together and changing the look to a more family-friendly place.” Pete’s will feature its signature brews such as Uptown Blonde, as well as 16 or so other beers on tap, a full bar and a wine selection. Food offerings include pizza, pasta, sandwiches and vegetar-

ian options. Pete’s American Pale Wheat Ale is well paired with the bistro chicken salad or prawns and chips. The Midtown Ale goes well with green salads, fish tacos and the polled pork tacos. Chandra Lee, of Folsom, said she is familiar with the eatery and looking forward to Pete’s moving in to Folsom. “When we are in El Dorado Hills, we eat there,” Lee said. “Having one closer to home will be great.”

Citrus olive oil proves fruitful
BY KATHY MAYNARD

hree generations of a Penryn family work together to produce award-winning citrusflavored olive oils enjoyed around the world. Rich and Nancy Colwell started planting mandarin trees on the

T

property they purchased from Rich’s parents as a fun hobby to share with their children in the early 1980s. Every year, they planted a few more trees around their home just because they all loved doing it, said Rich Colwell, a retired Placer County government

employee. The orchard expanded along with their family as they added Meyer lemons, hachiya and fuyu persimmons and other fruit trees. Today, their Colwell Thundering Herd Ranch ships their award-winning mandarin and Meyer lemon olive oils, spe-

cialty products and fresh fruit across the country. Many customers purchase their products to send abroad. “We’ve been working 25 years to become an overnight success,” said Rich Colwell. The family hobby gradually turned into a business. The name came about early one Saturday morning when all five kids jumped on their parents’ bed together to welcome their daddy home from a week-long business trip. “I looked at Nancy and said, ‘What is this, a thundering herd?’ That became the kids’ nickname, then we named the ranch after them. Those five kids who helped clear the land, plant the trees and do all the mowing and picking by hand continue to be an integral part of the business,” he said. After the kids left for college, their mother decided to return to school herself. “In 2006, I took a math class at Sierra College from a teacher who was always getting sick, so I’d take her Mandarins. She took them home to her husband, who grew olives in Corning. He wanted to try making Mandarin olive oil so he came by and we picked a bunch. The oil he made by crushing our Mandarins with his olives turned out great and he sold every drop,” said Nancy Colwell. Four years ago, the family broke away to produce flavored oils under their own Thundering Herd Ranch label by partnering with another olive grower. They also tested

about 50 balsamic vinegars before selecting the one they now import from Italy to complement their oils and found a Napa chocolatier to produce gourmet orange liqueur and cabernet chocolate sauces. Their sales gradually increased 25 to 30 percent a year until last November, when an area newspaper published an online article about them and their market suddenly expanded to 44 states. They doubled production to meet the growing demand. Their 2011 Mandarin and lemon olive oils won best of class and best of division awards as well as gold, silver and bronze medals in both international and California olive oil competitions. They even received orders to ship fresh persimmons back east, after Hurricane Sandy disrupted distribution of persimmons grown in upper New York State. Yet, their commercial success is secondary to what the business has done to bring them all together as a family, said Rich Colwell. “We work together, pick together, sell together, market together. Now the next generation is already helping. Our grandsons come here after school, go on deliveries, assemble gift packs and offer to sweep up. We’ve never been closer,” he said.

said. “I thought, they like to do tagging and graffiti, so how about using that as a tool? Little by little every week they started talking and telling their stories through their graffiti and artwork.” The next thing she knew, the kids were bonding to each other and to her, releasing what they had been through, by way of art.

Moss herself picked up the paint brush and palate knife after that experience. “I begin painting without any preconceived ideas of what the finished artwork is going to look like,” Moss said. “It’s been therapeutic for me to teach myself not to control the painting process, but allow it to unfold.” Her paintings reflect

FOLSOM LAKE ENTERTAINER
emotions and feelings relating to her experiences at a particular point in time. “The painting flows through my hands and onto the canvas, forming organically, as I try to keep up with the images and colors that are taking form,” Moss said. “I’ve learned to layer paint and materials to create the surface and dimension of the image in my mind.” Her art is very personal to her, and at first she was hesitant to show it to anyone. “I experience firsthand the use of art as a tool for self-expression and selfdisclosure when an intense or painful emotion is beyond words,” Moss said. “Art is my therapy — the process of being creative and using my imagination is therapeutic.” Eventually she got up the courage and approached Wayne and Barbara Procissi, who had a Procissi Cellars Gallery at 627 Sutter St. They referred her to Charlie Asher who, with Lori Anderson and Carol Quinn, had “reignited” the Folsom Art Association, which later led to the formation of the Sutter Street Artists. “We didn’t have a gallery at first,” Asher said. “We just came together as a group of artists and started up . . . and then started having paint-outs on Sutter Street.” After the group became associated with Procissi, the gallery was taken over by Petra Vineyard, and is now known as Petra Vineyard’s Wine Gallery and Tasting Room. Asher said that Moss was one of the first to hang her art in the

gallery, Asher said. “I was very impressed with Heather’s work,” Asher said. “She’s an abstract artist but she actually develops her abstract art from a real live scene. I always see something behind her art.” Moss said she works with acrylics, watercolor, and pastels on canvas to get a unique movement of the paint and to bring texture and depth to the painting. “My process is ever changing and often experimental,” Moss said, “such as using water to manipulate paints, canvas on canvas, rice paper, pallet knifes, scratching, and mixing different mediums.” Regina Ureta, who has a daycare in Folsom, met Moss several years ago and they have since become friends. “She did this piece called Love Radiates,” Ureta said. “To me it looks like a heart and then there are a bunch of hearts inside the heart. It was perfect for how I felt about my daycare.” Ureta uses art to elicit feelings from the children at her daycare, and she gets a lot of comments about Moss’s painting. “One (child) said it makes him happy, makes him smile,” Ureta said. “One of them said, ‘Oh, that’s my little heart in the big heart.’ It’s really a conversation piece.”

When first graders in teacher Margaret O’Hair’s ocean-themed classroom have reading time, they escape to “Book Beach” to select a piece of literature of their choosing. They spread out on this patch of blue carpet and read Dr. Seuss, or a book about farm animals or science fiction, and their teacher reads right alongside them. “You have to role model reading and role model writing,” O’Hair said. “That’s what I think.” The Thomas Jefferson Elementary School teacher models writing by being the author of five children’s books. The latest, “Sweet Baby Feet,” was released by MacMillan Publishers in

November. It’s illustrated by Tracy Dockray, the artist of the current “Beverly Cleary” novels. “I don’t write full time,” O’Hair said. “It’s like a garden. I just tend to it and keep it growing.” The Rocklin resident also helps grow a love of reading and writing among children at her school through the Writing Camp she runs for kids in first through fifth grade. The optional camp takes place for 20 minutes during lunchtime a few times a month and about 50 students participate. They typically get to free write about whatever they want.

in an abandoned building in New York who are on a case to find a missing cat. Second-grader Sofia Martos wrote that she wished her notebook was magic and anything she drew would come to life. But, then she pondered: What would happen if she drew something scary? Their teacher, meanwhile, helps them find their voice. “You just need to give them the key to unlock their voice,” O’Hair said. When camper and third-grader Elizabeth Werley visits her older brother in Los Angeles, she will stare out the window of his apartment and describe what she sees. “You get to write anything you want,” she said

of camp. “Sometimes I write what Ms. O’Hair tells me and other times I like to express my feelings on the page.” Campers recently wrote Christmas cards for military personnel overseas, thanking them for their service and wishing them happy holidays. At the end of the academic year, the camp publishes an anthology of student writing. Some campers are also in O’Hair’s class, where they learn about language arts in creative and thematic ways. For instance, they learned about compound words — a grade-level standard — by writing each part of the words on a pair of mittens, physically taking the two parts and putting them together.

Museum exhibit to revisit Folsom in the 1950s
he decade of the 1950s was a momentous one for Folsom. Natomas Company floated their movable ponds over much of the area, dredged for gold and refined it into bricks. Aerojet reached its zenith with around 26,000 employees. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built Folsom Dam. Johnny Cash recorded his famous Folsom Prison song. History buffs and those who look for a reminder of those times can see a sampling of memorabilia and artifacts on display at the Folsom History Museum, 823 Sutter St., from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, Jan. 26 through March 27. According to Folsom History Museum’s Melissa Pedroza, the population of Folsom in the 1950s was around 2,000 people. The 2010 census lists more than 72,000. “(Folsom) had just recently incorporated into a city and it was learning how to deal with that,” Pedroza said. “It had a mayor and a city council, as it does now. I was reading something that said the first police chief was paid $200 a month and had to use his own car.” Although Rich Gray, of Gray’s Place Antiques, was still a child in the ‘50s, he remembers meeting city council candidate Jack Kipp in 1958. “I clearly remember the guy

as being a very big guy, boisterous and powerful,” Gray said. “He was very successful. It is considered by many people that this town is what it is because of him.” As to how Gray passed time in the ‘50s, he said he rode bicycles or horses with his friends. “Back then, we’d go all the way up the highway where the high school is now on bicycles or horses,” he said. “Usually when we were out of school, we’d want to get on a horse and ride it to the pond or the creek.” He also listened to the radio and to record players, but didn’t watch much TV. “Elvis Presley is probably going to be the first person that I can associate with early ‘50s country,” Gray said. “Then, Hank Williams, Sr., Scruggs, Jimmie Davis.” Ellen Hester, who lived in Folsom off and on since 1942, remembers the Natomas Company well, because her father, W. Brown Duvall, worked as an amalgamator, melting down

the gold and making it into gold bricks that were then sent off to Fort Knox, Kentucky. Her uncle, Cy Thomas, was general manager. “Much of post 1950s Folsom has been built on top of leveled dredger tailings,” Hester said. Some of the displays at the ‘50s exhibit will be large ones, such as a jukebox loaned by Gray, and more – his 1952 red MGTD motor car. The MGTD was produced in England from 1949 to 1953. Others memorabilia of the times will be on view, including some from high school sports of the decade. For more information about the exhibit, please call the Folsom History Museum, (916) 985-2707.

Poker tournament pays homage to lost son

What: Race to Keep Hearts Beating Benefit Dinner and Texas Hold’em Tournament When: 6 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 12 Where: Folsom Community Center, 52 Natoma St., Folsom. Tickets: $55 for dinner and poker or $45 for dinner and bingo Info: racetokeephearts beating.com

fter her son’s sudden death, Karie Salazar turned a heartbreaking tragedy into something encouraging for her community. Her son Race, a 19-year-old college freshman, passed away in his sleep in February 2010 inside his dorm room at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The Clark County coroner’s office determined Race passed away of natural causes due to cardiac arrhythmia. The life-ending heart arrhythmia is a condition of Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndrome (SADS). After her son’s tragic death, Salazar wanted to use her experience to bring more awareness to SADS and help benefit her community. The benefit poker tournament has grown substantially each year and with the third event approaching, Salazar thinks this year will be even bigger. She is anticipating around 350 tickets to be sold. “The motivation behind the Race to Keep Hearts Beating Benefit Dinner and Texas Hold ‘em Tournament is to create awareness for the SADS Foundation as we raise funds for the Folsom Athletic Association and the UNLV Foundation,” she said. “Preventing senseless deaths in children and young adults from various heart conditions related to SADS is all about awareness and education.” Each year she provides an educational presentation at the event in efforts to reach out to local communities by sharing the life saving information about the warning signs and symptoms of SADS. “This small portion of the evening has proven to be very positive in that at both of our 2011 and 2012 events, we were successful in identifying several at risk children right here in

Folsom that required additional medical testing,” Salazar said. “Prevention is key and that cannot happen without creating and maximizing event opportunities like the Race to Keep Hearts Beating event.” Salazar said this year they will present new information recently discovered about SADS. “There is new information to be shared about sports participation research in athletes with congenital long QT syndrome as well as new information on electrocardiogram screening for disorders that cause sudden cardiac death in asymptomatic children,” she said. “These are just a few new developments on SADS we will touch upon.” Following the presentation, guests can expect a raffle with five or six bingo games and a live auction. At 8 p.m., half of the dinner tables will be converted to full-size poker tables and the professionally run Texas Hold ‘em Poker Tournament will begin. “We plan on having between 15 and 20 full tables of players of various skill levels participating in the tournament this year,” she said. “The tournament runs until 11:30 p.m. as we narrow down the playing field that brings us to our final table.” The event is going to be “fiesta” themed with authentic Mexican food being prepared using delicious recipes created by Race’s grandfather, Manual Salazar. Dessert will be courtesy of Sassy Sweets by Monique, a new bakery on Sutter Street in Folsom. While the fundraiser has benefited a variety of locations in past years, Salazar said this year they are looking to Folsom. “This year we are excited to be making a shift in how we are disbursing the monies raised from the event,” she said. “Coming out of the gate year one, we were focusing on funding an endowment scholarship in Race’s name at UNLV while supporting both the SADS Foundation and Folsom Athletic Association (FAA) with donations. With the success of our first two events, we’ve reached the benchmark of $30,000 needed to fund the UNLV endowment sooner than we had anticipated, allowing us to contribute a larger portion of what we raise to the sports programs right here in Folsom.” Moving forward, she said they will be substantially increasing the amounts donated to the FAA as well as the scholarships created for both Folsom and Vista del Lago high schools in Race’s name.

“We will continue to support SADS and UNLV but the primary focus financially will be here in Folsom,” Salazar said. When asked why this benefit is so important to her and her family, Salazar simply answered to continue helping others. “Our family and friends feel great about what we are doing in Race’s honor,” Salazar said. “Educating and saving lives is purposeful work. Three years ago this Feb. 20, Race fell asleep and never woke up due to LQTS, a condition of SADS. This tragedy should not have to happen to any family ever. Unlike many other disorders, SADS conditions can be stopped by simple education. The fact that several of the key warning signs of SADS occur during exercise and that the most likely place for a child to experience recognizable symptoms is at a recreation center or on a ball field of some kind falls right into line with what Race loved most growing up, sports. We want to align our efforts with the adults and organizations supervising the activities as well as the parents and grandparents of the children playing. Keeping our kids healthy and safe is what motivates us and Race would have it no other way.” For tickets and more information, visit racetokeepheartsbeating.com.
