never understood why all some people park their cars in the driveway. Can’t they clear out enough space in the garage to fit at least one of their vehicles? Instead, there are piles of cardboard boxes, bikes hanging from the ceiling, football helmets stacked on tool chests stacked on treadmills that would all seemingly topple if one golf club were to be removed (think Jenga, but with junk). But now I get it. I have a kid. Already my garage is teeming with outgrown baby clothes, boxes from all the toys he got for Christmas, and

videogames, binders and other assorted junk that was displaced when the spare bedroom had to be transformed into a nursery. After the holidays, when we welcome so many new gadgets into our lives, it’s wise to rethink all the stuff we have – and get rid of the things we don’t need. Once I unwrap a spiffy new pair of pajamas for

Christmas, I like to throw out my rattiest set (you know, the really comfy pair you wore so much the elastic isn’t doing its job anymore). Letting go of stuff is freeing, and makes for a fresh start in the new year. Quickly turn to page 18 for inspiration to do this.

Hendricks can help in fight to lose pounds
Weight management clinic can be the coach in your corner
BY EILEEN WILSON
VIEW CORRESPONDENT

A

new year, another New Year’s resolution. Seems like most of us make resolutions that in some way, shape or form, involve our weight or the foods we eat. Some resolve to drop 10 pounds, eat more vegetables and build more muscle. While some of us strive to fit into that little black dress, others are trying to drop pounds as a matter of life or death. Luckily, if you’re trying to lose weight, or attain optimal health, these are battles you don’t have to fight alone. “Obesity is not a self-help disease,” said Paula Hendricks of Hendricks for Health Center for Weight Management. “There is so much misinformation out there. So many people listen to the media — but you can’t just give a blanket solution.” Hendricks for Health, which opened its doors in Roseville over two decades ago by Dr. Ed Hendricks and Paula Hen-

“People need to know how to live, not how to die. I don’t just eat boring salads. I love meat and protein, and I don’t ever feel cheated.”
Granite Bay resident Piper Miguelgorry, a former Type 2 diabetic who lost 50 pounds with the help of Hendricks for

dricks, his wife and nutritionist, has helped thousands of patients — from the obese client who is looking at bariatric surgery, to the fit client who simply wants to maximize nutrition and health. Dr. Ed Hendricks explained the importance of maintaining a healthy weight. “The truth is that excess fat causes metabolic problems. People who are overweight have higher incidence of cardiac disease and the risk can begin with the first few pounds,” he said. Dr. Hendricks said that

Paula Hendricks says the right amount of protein will help knock out those excess pounds.

though you might not see serious disease for decades, the underlying problem is there, just under your excess layer of tummy fat. “It’s a progressive thing — the excess 10 pounds becomes

15, then 20. And the longer you wait to deal with it, the more difficult it is to get the fat off and keep it off,” Dr. Hendricks said. But losing weight doesn’t have to be a chore. After ana-

lyzing a client’s health, the Hendricks team can put together a plan for the individual; a plan that includes the proper amount of protein, which Paula Hendricks said is key. “You have to eat the right amount of protein for your body,” she said. “The three macronutrients – protein, carbohydrates and fat, plus micronutrients like minerals

It’s not till the wedding, or until I fit into that dress, it’s something people will stick with — and that’s where people can fail when they do it on their own.”
Granite Bay resident Piper Miguelgorry has improved her health dramatically, thanks to the Center for Weight Management. Suffering from Type 2 diabetes, Miguelgorry learned of the center from a friend who had visited the Hendrickses and looked and felt great. “I set up a consultation — I interviewed Dr. Hendricks. I wanted to get to the heart of the program and find out why I should see ‘him’ and not another physician,” she said. “I found out that he is a leading physician for obesity.” After losing 50 pounds in just six months, Miguelgorry was a believer. Since keeping the weight off for over two years, she has eliminated her diabetes and no longer takes medication. She has substantially reduced her body mass index and body fat overall, and her energy level is higher than ever.

Dr. Ed Hendricks and wife Paula Hendricks go for a hike.
Miguelgorry said the center has taught her how to read labels and how to eat right, not to mention how to integrate exercise into her daily routine. Keys to her success have been adding protein, decreasing meal portions but eating more, smaller meals, drinking plenty of water, and walking for an hour each day. “I pack healthy snacks to take wherever I go, and I educate others whether they want it or not,” she said. “People need to know how to live, not how to die. I don’t just eat boring salads. I love meat and protein, and I don’t ever feel cheated.” Hendricks for Health offers patients fresh, delicious recipes like Tasty Taco Soup, and Skinny Potato Skins each month. Paula Hendricks encourages anyone interested in weight loss, or improving their health to visit their Website or stop by their Douglas Boulevard office to learn more about a healthy lifestyle.

Meatloaf Madness is packed with protein and simple to create.

RECIPE: MEATLOAF MADNESS!
Paula Hendricks regularly shares recipes on the Hendricks for Health Center for Weight Management website and Facebook page. “Meatloaf has always been a casual comfort food for decades,” she says. “This sophisticated recipe version I have created here can be served to your family, at an elegant dinner party, or frozen for future meals during the week. Making individual loaves keeps you mindful of portion control.” Serves 8.

For the roasted tomatoes
• 4 cups cherry tomatoes • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar • 2 garlic cloves, mined • 1 teaspoon Splenda brand sugar blend • 2 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper

Directions
For the roasted tomatoes: Rinse the tomatoes, halve them or leave whole, and place them in an oven-proof glass dish. Mix all the other ingredients together and pour over tomatoes. Bake at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes until the tomatoes begin to caramelize. To prepare the meatloaf: In a large mixing bowl, add ground beef, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, salt and pepper; set aside. In large skillet, add the chopped onion and bacon; sauté for 3-5 minutes until onions are clear. Add minced garlic, Beef and Burger Rub and cook for one more minute. Remove pan from heat. Add the onion mix into the meat and with your hands, mix the ingredients together. To cook: Form meat into 8 individual oblong meatloaf servings and place them a non-stick baking pan. Bake in oven at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes and meat is browned on top. Remove from oven when done. Serve the meatloaf patty and a side of roasted tomatoes on a plate. Enjoy!

Au pairs do more than just child care

hen Steve and Judy Holt went looking for child care for their five youngsters, they found a special service. Instead of taking them to daycare or hiring a nanny, they opted for an au pair, Kelly Van Der Merwe, from South Africa. The Granite Bay family’s au pair is from a service, AuPairCare, which began in 1989. Locally, it’s under the supervision of Leslie Marks, area director. Au pair is a French term meaning “on a par” or “equal to” which indicates that the relationship is intended to be one of equals, that the au pair becomes a family member rather than a domestic servant, according to the aupair

AuPairCare works with people from 40 countries that have overseas agencies to recruit and profile applicants. Au pairs in this area are from Germany, Brazil, Czech Republic,

Thailand, Denmark, France, Columbia, Mexico Serbia, Japan and China. The au pair has the opportunity to learn English, while the hosts may choose an au pair based on the family’s heritage or a language they want their youngsters to learn. To become an au pair, applicants must be between 18 and 26 years of age, have child-care experience, speak English and be a high school graduate. Most importantly, applicants for au pair jobs must love children and enjoy spending time with them. “I don’t know why anyone would want to come here and watch children for 45 hours a week if they didn’t like children,” Marks said. The program is under the direction of the U.S. State Department, which requires au pairs to have a J-l visa. When someone applies,

AuPairCare does background checks, medical screenings and checks references, Marks said. When they arrive in the U.S., au pairs receive three days of intensive training in New York and New Jersey. They attend CPR and first aid classes and learn about 911, which may be different in their countries. “They’re also taught American street smarts,” Marks said. Those who will be caring for infants go to another day of specialized classes for infants — CPR, body massage, bathing and sign language. Au pairs are screened by advisers in the corporate office in San Francisco and by matching experts. As an area director, Marks also screens applicants. “We put names in a database and match

CARE: Au pairs help prepare lunches and drive a child to and from school, lessons or recitals
continued from page 9 interests, instead of the family going through 500 names. (Our service) is not as time consuming,” Marks said. “We help families find au pairs that fit their needs,” she said. “We want the au pair to be a family member.” An au pair may help with preparing lunches, driving a child to and from school, to music lessons and recitals. Another may be chosen for an interest in sports if the child is in a youth league or on a swim team. “Kelly enjoys teaching the kids some Afrikaans, as well as the culture and traditions of South Africa,” Marks said. Au pairs are also trained to work with special needs children who may have Down’s syndrome, autism or be completely disabled. “Anything children may have, we have au pairs who are experienced. The au pair is an extra person in the home to help families,” Marks said. The Holts like having another set of hands in the house. “This allows us to have more quality time together as a family,” said Judy Holt. “Kelly enjoys the kids and feels it’s not a job but the responsibility as a family member.” Au pairs typically stay with one family for one year, but their visa may allow them to extend their time for six, nine or 12 months, and they can either stay with the same family or work for another. “Most au pairs choose to stay another year and families like that option. It’s easier on the kids,” Marks said. State Department regulations say that the au
more than 10 hours a day, and must get 1 1/2 days off a week and one weekend off a month. They are paid $7.50 an hour. “That’s $350 a week no matter how many children are in the family,” Marks said. “They are only allowed to do things like clean the child’s bedroom and bathroom. They are not housekeepers,” Marks said. “They can do anything that is child-care related, like take youngsters to the park, help them clean up toys and take them to school.” That may mean they work a split shift, with time off during the school day. “Their free time is a great time for the au pair to take a course,” Marks said. The Department of State requires them to get six credits at a post-secondary university or college. In this area, they attend Sierra College, Folsom Lake, William Jessup, American River or UC Davis. Au pairs can take any course including American history, English as a second language, photography or other classes. “The family helps pay up to $500 for education; the au pair is responsible for the rest of the expenses,” Marks said. As area director, Marks helps au pairs if they become ill or have problems. She also helps them make friends. The program requires her to host a monthly event for area au pairs. She’s taken them to “Build-A-Bear” to make gifts for the Make a Wish Foundation, they’ve cleaned up the American River at Discovery Park and she hosted a holiday party in her home where the au pairs brought a food item typical of their country. She also is required to talk to each au pair and their host family once a month to answer questions, and make sure they’re following the rules. If there is a problem, she may find a better placement with another family. “I wish I’d known about this program when my kids were little,” Marks said, indicating they could learn so much about cultural diversity. “I am very passionate about this job and just want people to know what a great program this is for families and their children.”

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 is working on the details with prison officials for the performance. “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

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.”

Jalisco Grill brings the taqueria to Granite Bay
BY TOBY LEWIS
DINING VIEW COLUMNIST

erhaps I could make an argument that nothing represents true California cuisine quite like the taqueria. Found in just about any city or town throughout the Golden State, the taqueria is the place where one goes to find fast, simple and (most of the time) authentic Mexican fare for a very reasonable price. Needless to say, the taqueria is one of my favorite places to grab food fast when I am on the go (notice I did not say “fast food”). Ramon Arias understands the taqueria concept and opened one of Roseville’s most popular ones, Jalisco Grill, on Fairway Boulevard in 2002. The restaurant has been voted by readers of the Roseville Press Tribune as the “Best of the Best” for four consecutive years. So when I found out that Arias opened a new location in Granite Bay, I thought I’d pop in for a visit to find out if it is really that good. If you are unfamiliar, the taqueria concept is informal, unpretentious and simple. You walk up to the counter, order off the menu, pay, get your chips and salsa from the fresh salsa bar, grab a table and wait for your food. It is dining at its most basic. Arias’ new Jalisco Grill in Granite Bay is everything that a classic taqueria should be. The restaurant, located in a small strip mall where Sierra College Boulevard and East Roseville Parkway meet, is spacious with simple décor and ample natural lighting. The main dining area has between 12 to 15 “cafeteriastyle” tables and chairs, high chairs for the kids and three large flat-screen TVs. An outdoor patio holds another 10 to 12 tables, nicely sheltered by a landscaped knoll

from busy Sierra College Boulevard and shaded by the adjacent building. Most people go to a taqueria for a one-course meal, be it a burrito, a taco platter, a chili relleno or what have you.

For the benefit of you, dear reader, I recently visited the Jalisco Grill in Granite Bay with an empty stomach and a hefty appetite for more than one course. First I went for the ceviche.

Ceviche is typically some kind of raw seafood, usually shrimp and/or scallops, tossed with onion, cilantro and any other combination of ingredients used at the chef’s discretion, then cured with lemon or lime juice. The Jalisco Grill’s ceviche contains pollock, a mild-tasting white fish usually found in Alaska, tossed with red onion, cilantro, jalapeno, carrot and avocado, served over a tostada shell. I found the dish to have a generous portion of fish with a light, fresh citrus flavor and a slight hint of the jalapeño. It was well balanced, well sea-

soned and set the bar really high for the rest of the meal. Next, I opted for a soft shell taco with carne asada (grilled steak). The dish was akin to the “street taco,” with grilled meat, white onion, cilantro and red salsa. However, a typical “street taco” usually uses a smaller corn tortilla, and this taco had a regular-sized corn tortilla and was literally spilling with meat. While messy, the taco was still quite delicious. I also thought I’d try a fish taco, which contained the same white pollock as the ceviche along with white onion and cilantro.

JANUARY • GRANITE BAY VIEW

I have had many a fish taco in my day, and suffice it to say this recipe could use a little work. While the flavors were undoubtedly fresh and the portion of meat generous, I found the taco to be under-seasoned and quite messy. Several napkins later, I picked up a crispy-shell chicken taco. I can’t remember the last time I had a crispyshell taco. I found the chicken was well-seasoned and not over cooked while the crispy shell added a nice crunch that brought back good memories. Next, Arias brought out two staple dishes of which he said the restaurant is “known for” — the “super wet burrito” and “mixed fajitas.” The super wet burrito contained beef, rice, sour cream, salsa and beans topped with a red enchilada sauce and avocado. The word “super” per-

haps understates the size of the burrito, which was happily consumed by my photographer who said it was “good” with “lots of flavor.” Feeling quite full, I sampled the fajitas, which came out on a sizzling platter filled with grilled

chicken and beef sautéed with onions, bell peppers and jalapenos. A side of rice and beans with guacamole, sour cream and flour tortillas were also served with the dish. The fajitas were some of the best I have had, with a noticeable freshness that Arias says the restaurant chain is “known for.” After the meal, Arias and I sat down for a conversation about the concept of his three Jalisco Grill restaurants and how he came to be a restaurateur. “The official name of the restaurant is Jalisco Fresh Grill,” Arias said. “It is fresh, fast and good. Everything is fresh.” Arias was born in a small town just outside of Guadalajara and his restaurant is the namesake of the Mexican state from which he hails. Jalisco is a small state located in central Mexico and home to one of the

country’s most culturally rich populations in the capital city of Guadalajara. The region is well known for the cultivation of the agave plant, the primary component for the country’s major export — tequila. While the Jalisco Grill does not offer any tequila, the restaurant does offer a modest beer and wine selection, mostly Mexican beer, and a few California wines. Arias said the menu, which was put together by his brother and chef Alejandro Arias, is a simple representation of the typical cuisine found in his home state of Jalisco. There are other authentic dishes to be found on the menu, such as the “sopa de siete mares” (seven seas soup), which is basically a mixedseafood stew. Pozole (a rich stew typically made with pork and

hominy) and menudo (a traditional Mexican soup made with beef stomach) are available only on weekends. While many authentic Mexican staples are represented on the menu, I was disappointed to not see a couple of my favorites — albondigas (meatball soup) and machaca (shredded beef). The bottom line, however, is that if I were to judge this restaurant by the quality of its freshness and authentic flavors, I’d say it gets an above-average grade. The ceviche is some of the best I’ve had, and I know I will be returning for it.

Grandma’s Kitchen opens in Granite Bay

Claud Fernandez gets breakfast going inside Grandma’s Kitchen.

he new Grandma’s Kitchen in Granite Bay may not actually have a wise, elderly woman slaving over its stoves, but it does emit the searing smells of freshly cut produce cooking with meats and eggs. Owned by Jose Valladares and Claud Fernandez, Grandma’s Kitchen is meant to invoke the quality of home-cooked meals, using locally sourced vegetables and meats that are bought daily. “There’s no freezers or

T

food storage in this place,” Valladares said. “Everything is fresh and made from scratch.” Valladares and Fernandez have ample experience in the restaurant business, both having worked at Thunder Valley Casino and locations of The Yard House. One morning, while eating breakfast at a diner, the two men had an epiphany. “We realized there are all of these chain diners for breakfast that are jam packed with people, even though their food is really crappy,” Valladares recalled. “We thought, what if we opened a place that has the fast service, but still puts exceptionally good food on the plate? That’s our main idea.”

Grandma’s Kitchen held its ribbon-cutting ceremony Nov. 14. The menu it unveiled was a balanced mix of Mexican and American standards, along with some specialty offerings such as its traditional Cuban pulled pork sandwich. A number of customers that morning gave high marks to various breakfast options. For Valladares, the taste is the whole point of any dining experience. “When the food is good you feel at home,” he said. “That’s why we want to remind people of coming into their grandma’s kitchen.” Grandma’s Kitchen is at 8425 Sierra College Boulevard, near the Douglas Boulevard intersection and behind Taco Bell.

Organization brings ‘psychological satisfaction’
3 DAY CLOSETS Where: 6085 Douglas Blvd., Suite 100, Granite Bay Info: (916) 788-1461 or www.3dayclosets.com FINELY ORGANIZED Who: Dawn Cannon Info: (916) 660-1415 or www.finelyorganized.net

BY LAURA O’BRIEN
VIEW CORRESPONDENT

t’s a painstaking chore, but getting organized boosts productivity and leads to a sense of calm and control. Hiring a professional organizer or purchasing a custom home storage solution are two options for putting a clamp on clutter. For Bill Swearingen, calling an organizer to overhaul his garage, his home office and digital photos was worth every penny. “There’s a psychological satisfaction in finally getting

I

things cleaned out,” said Swearingen, who first contacted Granite Bay organizer Dawn Cannon of Finely Organized a couple of years ago. “I’m probably her perfect example of someone who isn’t

able to throw things away in a timely manner,” he said. Cannon, an organizer for 12 years, said her business is stronger than ever now, despite the economic recession. “It’s been very interesting because people are letting go of their office leases and merging their business office into their home,” she said. “They don’t know how to manage their time and they’re also realizing that they have to buckle down and become more efficient.” Joel Croll owns 3 Day Closets, with a showroom on Douglas Boulevard in Granite Bay since

last March. He said 2011 was the company’s biggest year since it opened in Roseville in 2005. And this year’s sales projections are higher than last year’s. “In a down economy we’re a good solution for people having to stay where they’re at,” Croll said. 3 Day Closets splits its business between closets and home offices, including Murphy beds. The company manufactures its own storage solutions at its plant in Roseville. Of his clients Croll said, “They’re the average person

who is just saying, “You know what? I’m tired of the clutter.’” Cannon shared the process she uses with her clients: purge, sort, and then organize.
1. Get rid of stuff

People become anxious and quickly overwhelmed with the prospect of letting go of their things, she said. “It’s about the anxiety, the stress and the overwhelm, and the sense of doom. They just get paralyzed and that’s when they quit or shutdown,” she added. Cannon asks pointed questions that help her clients

18

JANUARY • GRANITE BAY VIEW

assess if they truly need and love an item or are holding onto it for the wrong reasons, such as guilt or fear. The process she sometimes calls “editing” also helps her determine what type of organizing solution is best for each client. Knowing where a discarded item will find its eventual home reassures clients. Cannon said she has found museums for treasured military uniforms, for example. She also maintains connections with local charities and other donation centers.
2. Sort and conquer

“It’s a challenge and it’s like working a puzzle. I’ve got all these pieces, which are what they want and what they want (the storage system) to look like, and what their physical needs are.”
Lorah Frazier, storage solution designer for 3 Day Closets

Lorah Frazier designs storage solutions for 3 Day Closets. The company provides complimentary in-home consultation and computerassisted design. When meeting a client at their home, Frazier said she talks with them about their organizing goals and the types of components they want in their new system. She also takes an inventory of their things. A former circuit-board designer, Frazier came to the organizing business as a client herself nine years ago. “When I got my first closet I was just shocked about how much more I could get out of my space,” she said. She was so impressed with the amount of space her children regained in their bedroom through a custom closet solution that she asked the company that did the work, another closet company, for a job. “The whole job is math and little bit of creativity,” she said. “It’s a challenge and it’s like working a puzzle. I’ve got all these pieces, which are what they want and what they want (the storage system) to

look like, and what their physical needs are.” Cannon said she determines the type of organizing system that makes sense for each client based on their individual learning style. A boardcertified professional organizer, she has training in behavior modification, time management and psychology. During sorting, items go into temporary bins, not necessarily the containers where they eventually will be stored. Cannon instructs clients to keep sorting, rather than returning individual items to where they belong in the home, which can be done later.
3. Set up the new system

Croll said the cost of a custom organizing solution, taking into account materials and the required installation labor, is competitive with an off-the-shelf system. “We generally can do a nice custom system, installed, for pretty much the same price,” he said. 3 Day Closets builds solutions based on a client’s dream design or based on a budget, he added. Since the company’s plant is in nearby Roseville, “lead time and ability to resolve issues is a lot quicker,” Croll said. Cannon said she charges $700 for organizing a garage, not including new shelving or bins. She finishes the job in one day, complete with items bagged and scheduled for donation. Swearingen asked for Cannon’s help with his garage twice — once

before he retired and once after he retired and he and his wife had completed a remodeling job in their home. The couple had saved several chairs, thinking they later would reupholster them, but with Cannon’s assistance, they realized that the chairs were just taking up needed space in their life. With the principles he learned from Cannon, Swearingen is considering tackling organizing his closet on his own. “It’s not anything that’s disrupting your life, but it’s still kind of a lowgrade irritation that you know has to be taken care of,” he said. He added that if he doesn’t find the resolve soon for the closet, which is stuffed with shoes he said are 20 to 30 years old but serviceable, he again will place a call to Cannon. “It’ll be scheduled. She’ll be here. It gets done and it’ll probably get done in half a day.”

hree generations of a Penryn family work together to produce award-winning citrus-flavored olive oils enjoyed around the world. Rich and Nancy Colwell started planting mandarin trees on the 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, specialty products and fresh fruit across the country. Many customers purchase their products to

T

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. Four years ago, the family broke away to produce flavored oils under their own Thundering Herd Ranch label by partnering with another olive grower.

William Jessup interns work on financial newsletter with UP Capital Management
BY MARGARET SNIDER
VIEW CORRESPONDENT

P Capital Management of Granite Bay is helping William Jessup University in Rocklin to achieve its internship goals by creating a fee-based, subscription newsletter. The object is to help readers manage their money. Anton Bayer, CEO of UP Capital Management, brought the idea of the paid internship to the University along with investment adviser Eric Savell, who himself is a WJU graduate. The editorial staff of the newsletter is to consist of the William Jessup interns, led by the management team of UP Capital Management, Savell said. “How can we power and prepare students to enter the workforce upon graduation and help them in being exceptionally employable upon graduation?” Savell asked. That question is not just

a rhetorical one. Dr. John Jackson at his inauguration as the sixth president of WJU said, “Our passion is for our students to be spiritually thriving, receive quality liberal arts education and to be exceptionally employable.” Four interns broke ground in the first semester of this project by conducting research on the practicality and viability of the newsletter. “We had an accredited class on campus,” Bayer said. “We met every Monday for two hours. They have to meet 100 hours of class and work time to achieve their accreditation, so Eric and I jointly led the class.” The interns worked together as a team. “First we did research on what the financial publishing industry was,” said Bryce Miller, 20, who is from Roseville. “Then (we evaluated) who we should be marketing to.” Miller was the only junior in the group, which was otherwise composed of seniors. Solvanga Slay of Antelope, 23, said she had nev-

er done research of that kind before. “We did a lot of research on the companies that made financial newsletters,” said Slay. “We went from what names they use, to how they organize their newsletters and how they lay out their newsletters.” The interns presented the resulting business plan to a combined group of WJU internship administrators and the UP Capital Management leaders. “I’ve never had to write a business proposal,” said Lindsay Aleshire, 23, of Rocklin. “We got to help write that and I thought that was really cool.” An important offshoot of the program according to intern Drew Bell, 21, from Clovis, was the introduction to the world of financial management. “They (Bayer and Savell) provided insight and helped us know what we were getting into,” Bell said. “They helped us get our feet wet.” But, said Bell, the interns were also looked to as a valuable resource. “They really wanted our feedback as to how to best

continued from page 21 shape the newsletter,” Bell said. “They said that really we have just as much experience as them in the newsletter industry, because it’s such a new venture. They wanted additional perspectives other than their own.” Bayer said that with the economic climate as it is currently, a lot of college graduates are moving back in with mom and dad. “It’s very hard for graduates to get jobs today, and part of it is the misalignment between their experience and their degree,” Bayer said. “They don’t have real life experience.” Sally Beaudry, business department internship coordinator, said the aim of the internship program is to make sure that the students get firsthand business experience. “The purpose is to expose them so they
understand how businesses are run, and really land on their feet ready to go when they graduate,” Beaudry said. This is only one of the internships available in the Business Department for students at WJU. “We had 22 interns this year and they worked in all kinds of different areas in the business world from hospitals to construction companies to manufacturing, all over,” Beaudry said. The newsletter is definitely one factor in achieving exposure for business students. “Every semester, like a football team, some would graduate and move on, and some would stay,” Bayer said. “Ideally, if it really grew into a fullblown editorial newsletter, you could cover a lot of topics and continue to expand.”

Cindy Williams returns to Folsom
BY LAURA NEWELL
GOLD COUNTRY NEWS SERVICE

“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 BowlA-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

T

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 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 it was a toss up. “It’s a toss up – ‘American Graffiti’ was a great time of my life and a lot of fun. But with ‘Laverne & Shirley,’ it was a lot of fun,” she said. “It was a privilege to just make people laugh every show.”

PROPERTY: large, cozy home
continued from page 26 living space with spectacular views — a space that the homeowner refers to as “the ballroom.” “The guesthouse contains commercial-grade appliances,” said Michelle McKnight of Rob Wolf and Associates – Keller Williams Realty. A Thermador range (six burners with grill), as well as commercial refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher and oven, contrast with an ornate, old-world hood. The guest kitchen includes granite counters and an elegant “lettuce bowl” raised glass sink. A rooftop terrace takes advantage of tree top and Sacramento skyline views, and there is 500 square feet of storage beneath the two-story guest property, as well. The main home is beautiful in its own right.
Opulent ceiling treatments, wainscoting and embellished crown molding is evident throughout the home. But the home is never fussy. It’s substantial yet elegant, large yet cozy. A massive entry greets visitors — a triptych of door plus hefty darkwood encased windows that house heavy decorative glass. Beyond the substantial exterior door, however, lies bright, light-colored rooms, like the living and dining rooms — glass doored, twin images that take the breath away. The family room includes boxed ceilings and plenty of built-ins, not to mention a full bar with refrigerator — a heavy wood affair that rivals anything you might find in your favorite watering hole in

HOME: Builder included hundreds of thoughtful upgrades for his custom home
continued from page 29 Boston or New York. But it’s the master suite, a set of rooms that feels like a separate apartment, and runs the entire length of the home, that takes advantage of breathtaking views, gabled ceilings and wonderful balcony areas. The master includes a double-faced fireplace with marble hearth that will blaze merrily toward both bed chamber and ultra-luxury, two-person, side-by-side jetted tub. “The master includes a sauna and a steam shower, as well,” McKnight said. Dual vanities, a water closet with both commode and bidet, separate makeup area, and an enlarged closet that includes a cedar-lined “fur room” and a large exercise room make this
master truly a suite unto itself. The space also includes a large sitting room and fully outfitted wet bar. “The television is inside a panel that drops out of the ceiling,” McKnight said. Unique touches like this abound in the home. From a laundry room with a built-in ironing board and gift wrap area, to intricate tile murals in the baths, to lighted tub surround, the home has too many unique and beautifully thought-out features to list. The home includes extensive grounds with a formal pool, and a brand new tile roof. “The builder, Tom Perkins, built this home for himself,” McKnight said. A perfect explanation for the hundreds of thoughtful upgrades.

Granite Bay Rugby has brought real opportunity to its players to go on to live the dream of playing a collegiate sport. Four years ago John Kimble brought rugby to our community. The program started with 30 high school players and has grown to over 200 players from third grade to high school. More impressive is the fact that eight players have graduated and gone on to become collegiate athletes. Two of those players are starting as freshmen for a couple of the nation’s top collegiate rugby programs. John Kimble, who graduated from Granite

of five sub-scores and one composite score. The categories are science, reading, mathematics, English and combined English/writing. Only 781 of over 1.66 million students who take the ACT get a perfect score. Sinclair studied hard and took the test two other times before logging a perfect score on the Sept. 8 test.

f you’ve ever been to a gym in January, you’ll see an increase in members. The new year is a fresh start for many, and fitness is one of the most popular goals to tackle. Fitness and health goals are different for every person. Some simply want to get stronger. Others are seeking greater endurance, weight loss, increased flexibility, or enhanced speed. Unfortunately, many are concerned with specific health issues, such as auto immune diseases, obesity, diabetes or arthritis. Infusion Fitness in Granite Bay has five experienced trainers who want to change the way the public perceives a gym environment.

A DOCTORS CONFESSION TO THE CITY OF GRANITE BAY
Dear Friend, A confession is tough to do, but it can help set the record straight. Before we talk about my confession, let me tell you a little about myself. Nineteen years ago I was a successful painting contractor putting myself through University California Davis pre-med. The little free time that I did have I spent weight lifting. As a result of the long hours of physical work and studying I developed a serious low back condition. It became so crippling that I could no longer do the things I loved to do and could not provide for myself. I was going to loose all that I had worked so hard for. After considering surgery (that was my only option according to my surgeon) I decided against it. A friend of mine convinced me to give Chiropractic a try. The Chiropractor reviewed my MRI, did an exam, took some x-rays, and then started to adjust my spine. The adjustment didn’t hurt, it actually felt good. I got relief, and I could use my leg again pain free. It worked so well I finished UCD and went to Chiropractic school myself. It’s strange how life can be, people not only come to me for back problems similar to what I suffered with. They also come to me for, headaches, migraines, chronic pain, neck pain, shoulder/ arm pain, whiplash from car accidents, numbness in limbs, fibromyalgia, and athletic injuries, just to name a few. Here is what some of my patients had to say: “Dr. Pete, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia several years ago. My doctor told me I would probably need to be on medications for the rest of my life in order to deal with the pain. He was right, until shortly after I started coming into your office. I am now pain free and drug free! It no longer hurts to give my husband or my grandchildren hugs. Thanks for giving me my life back.” Ada Pruitt. “Thank you for taking the time to educate me on the importance of Chiropractic care for me and my family. My daughter has ADD and is treated with Ritalin. From her first adjustment, I have noticed that she has great improvement in her ability to focus and follow direction, without medications!” Kim Bjorklund. or cure disease. Here’s how it works. I make a specific spinal adjustment and the nervous system functions better. It’s your body that does the healing. We have tremendous results. It’s that simple! You benefit from an amazing offer – Look, it shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg to correct your health. If you bring this ad in (by December 28th 2012) you will receive my entire new patient exam for $47. That is with a detailed health consultation, orthopedic and neurologic exam, X-rays (if necessary), and a report of findings... the whole ball of wax. This would cost $250 elsewhere. The law states that I cannot offer you this price, then charge you more for the interpretation of the results. Any further care will be agreed upon by both parties. But “further care” is very affordable, you will be happy to know that I have $40 spinal adjustments. You see I am not trying to seduce you to come see me with this low start up fee, then to only make it up with higher fees after that. Further care is very important to consider when making your choice of doctor. High cost can add up very quickly. Care will be aimed at correcting the actual cause of your health problems and not just covering up your symptoms with drugs. Great care at a great fee... Please, I hope that there’s no misunderstanding about quality of care, just because I have a lower fee. You’ll get great care at a great fee. My qualifications... I’m a graduate of Palmer College and was awarded the prestigious Clinical Excellence Award. I’ve been entrusted to take care of tiny babies, to professional athletes that you may know. I just have that low fee to help more people who need care. Our office is both warm and friendly and we do our best to make you feel at home. Our office is called Granite Bay Spine & Body and is located at 8207 Sierra College Blvd Suite 520 B, (next door to Bayside Church) our phone number is 916-782-2444. We can help you! – Dr. Pete Strombeck. P.S. I know many people will respond to this offer, so please call as soon as you can. The first 25 people who come in for their first visit will receive a $75 chiropractic pillow. P.S.S. If you do not find this the friendliest office you have ever been in, we will give you a full refund!

Many Americans no longer have insurance, and those who do, have found that their benefits are reduced. That’s where my office comes in. I have a significantly lower fee so that more people are able to afford the care they need. A whole week of care in my office costs what you could pay for one visit elsewhere. Another way to save...studies show that chiropractic adjustment can double your immune capacity, naturally, without drugs, or flu shots. The immune system fights colds, flues, and other sickness. So you may not be running off to the doctor as much. Studies have also showed people actually pay less for their long-term overall health care expenses if they are seeing a chiropractor. Now to my confession, I don’t heal anyone! I never have. I don’t treat

If you’re a mom on the run and like the camaraderie of a high-energy group workout in a bootcamp environment, Lena Geiser, 24, is the perfect coach for you. The upbeat aerobic enthusiast specializes in bootcamp interval training and conducts group sessions three days a week. “It’s a fun and challenging workout that’s always evolving,” Geiser said. Geiser joined Infusion six months ago upon a recommendation from former Granite Bay High School classmate, Partridge. Before joining Infusion, she was a trainer at sea and conducted
classes on the Royal Caribbean Cruise lines. She soon found out that she really missed being at home. “I love land,” Geiser said. Strength exercising and kettle bell training is the focus of Chris Johnson, 25. He also offers speed and agility training, sports training, and works with some MMA fighters who travel quite a distance to train with Johnson. Johnson appears to have a tough guy exterior, but don’t let that fool you. Upon talking to him it’s apparent that he wears his heart on his sleeve. “I love building relationships,” Johnson said. “Watching my clients get healthy in life and in their sport is very inspiring.” Having been a personal trainer for the past 25 years, Rex Owens, 48,

knows the importance of physical fitness, in fact, he studies it. The highly educated Owens has made a career out of fitness training. He creates individual plans and schedules based on each client’s need. “Everyone needs a personal trainer,” Owens said. “But not everyone needs a trainer every day.” From some of the Kings players’ wives, to moms and even older grandparents who simply want to strengthen their arms and lift their grandchildren, Owens is a wealth of knowledge. “This is what I do — accidentally.” That’s right — personal training was never his goal. After getting out of the Army in 1987, Owens showed up at a gym to apply for a job. As soon as the manager saw the tall, fit and young military veteran, he assumed Owens was there to apply for the trainer position. “They looked at me and asked if I was there for the trainer position,” Owens said. “I didn’t know the title of the position I was there for, so I just said ‘yes.’” Back then, trainers weren’t required to have any type of certifications, and so Owens was hired and immediately began to educate himself about the anatomy, which would help him train beyond the physical appearance. Owens obtained a bachelor’s degree in sport management and then a master’s degree in corrective exercise. He now teaches at Bryant College, where his students learn how to become personal trainers. One of his students is also a personal trainer at Infusion. MillyNunez, 33, has been a trainer for a year-and-a-half. She considers herself an accountability coach. “I like helping people reach their goals,” Nunez said. She offers group and individual training and concentrates on toning, being accountable to goals they set together and watching people change their lives. In addition to fitness training and wellness coaching, the licensed trainers at Infusion Fitness offer weight loss and nutritional advice.

Friendship goes to great lengths
G
racie Harada found the perfect way to honor her friend 11year-old Kylie Nguyen, who was battling leukemia. “We had read this book called ‘The Lemonade Club’ (written by Patricia Polacco) a week before Kylie was diagnosed. It talks about friendship and how one friend shaves her head for the other,” said Gracie’s mom, Cindy Harada. “And we said what about donating your hair?” The 10-year-old had her long, dark hair shorn for a donation to Locks of Love during a recent visit to Atrium Salon in Granite Bay. The salon treated Gracie and Kylie to a spa day that included manicures and a haircut. “It’s nice, she deserves it,” said Kylie’s mother, Christine Nguyen. “She’s been through a lot in the last 2 1/2 years and so it’s nice for her to have a little pampering.” Kylie was diagnosed in 2010 and underwent chemotherapy, resulting

Community mourns the loss of South Placer Fire board member
Giblin was retired firefighter, tireless volunteer
BY SCOTT THOMAS ANDERSON
THE PRESS TRIBUNE

Two huge American flags waved high from the tops of fire ladders Dec. 9 as more than 350 residents of the Granite Bay area turned out to pay their respects to Dave Giblin, a man who dedicated 45 years of his life to public safety. Giblin was known as a straight-talking, forceful personality who understood how to get results in the most difficult of circumstances. He graduated from San Juan High School in 1963 and went to work as a firefighter for the Citrus Heights Fire District. He took a five-year break from running into burning buildings when he joined the Navy to serve on the U.S.S. Bennington. Giblin returned to being a Citrus Heights firefighter in 1971, ultimately settling in at the South Placer Fire Protection

District for the rest of his career. He worked his way up to the rank of Assistant Fire Chief and then retired in 1997. Dave Giblin Several years later he was elected to the Board of Directors of the South Placer Fire Protection District. He served on the board right up until the moment of his death on Nov. 23. Giblin died from a long bout with cancer. He was 67. His funeral service, held Dec. 9 at the Lake Notama Inn in Folsom, saw a huge turnout to support his wife, Lisa, three children and five grandchildren. “Dave did more for South Placer Fire Protection District than probably anyone else,” said Craig Powell, the current president of the board. “His ability to get things done came from his background of being a 35-year firefighter and having a decade

of experience on the board. Basically, his whole life was about public service.” South Placer Fire Chief Lawrence Bettencourt worked closely with Giblin on numerous challenges confronting his department in recent years. He sees Giblin as a man who was absolutely dedicated to giving firefighters the best possible chance to save lives and property. “I think Dave’s main contribution, from the time he started to the day he passed away, was always putting what was best for the community ahead of what’s best for individuals,” Bettencourt said. “When the economic problems started, he directed staff to make things work without closing any stations and pulling back service for people.

He held firm on it — he was going to find a way to make it happen no matter what, and we never ended up closing a station.” Giblin was widely known for being unshakeable in high pressure situations. Tony Corado saw that first hand, first working for Giblin as a firefighter and then working for him again when Corado was fire chief and Giblin was a board member. “He was my boss for 35 years, and I can tell you he was an amazing man,” Corado said. “He was old school — pretty hardcore. He did things his way and always got the job done, exceeding everyone’s expectations. And when he took a stand on an issue, no one could make him change that stand or back down.” Corado added, “He didn’t worry about politics or what people thought of him, he just cared about the mission, which is a kind of person that’s harder and harder to find these days.”

A new year, a new teen
Teenagers need exercise, too. Get ‘em off the couch, pull the cell phone out of their hands, and send them to the field and the gym. Remember the good old days, when the only video game available was a pinball machine down at the local soda shop? Well, those days are long gone. Today’s teens have access to more video games and other technology that keeps them away from the great outdoors and off the basketball court. Instead of moving their growing bodies, they spend countless hours pushing buttons, texting friends and playing video games. But if exercise isn’t a regular part of your teen’s life, big trouble could be right down the road.
Deb Skelton Fitness Column

Why exercise matters
Take a look around at teens. They have countless social media tools that are supposed to help them be more connected with others than ever. Unfortunately, these social sites can cause teens to forget how to socialize with real people in real life. Get these kids

to the gym and encourage them to exercise with other teens, and you give them an instant lesson in socialization. But exercise is about more than being socially adept. It’s about good health. And in case you’ve not picked up a newspaper or magazine in the last 10 years, you should know that there is an obesity epidemic currently taking place. It’s affected plenty of adults, but it is now affecting teens as well. Get your teen exercising today, and you’ll help them obtain and maintain a healthy weight and develop lifelong healthy habits.

a teenager, take a deep breath, and prepare to put up a fight. When you’re going into battle with your teen, try these tips out. Make it fun. Remember when your teen was a toddler? Exercise wasn’t something you forced him or her to do. It just happened, via hide-andseek, tag, or just running all day long. Find what physical activities interest your teens, and encourage him or her to get out and do it. Up the chores. Is your teen lazing around the house doing nothing, while you’re working frantically to keep everything in order? Flip your teen’s world upside down by having him or her take over some of the more physically demanding chores. Have your teen

rake leaves, plant flowers, scrub toilets, and take out the garbage. It may not be the same as lifting weights, but it’ll get your teen’s body on the move! Do it together. If your child isn’t motivated to get in the gym on his or her own, offer to do it together. Whether you lift weights, ride bikes, swim, or hike, doing it as a family makes it easier to keep your teen on an exercise schedule. Take it easy. Your teen needs to exercise. There is no question about it. Just don’t let this need override your parenting knowhow. Ever tried to force your teen to do something he or she didn’t want to do? Didn’t work so well, did it? Remember this when working with your teen, and encourage

your teen gently. You may be surprised at the end result. How much? While medical experts normally recommend adults get 30 minutes of exercise five or more days a week, the same doesn’t hold true for teenagers. Instead, try to get your teen to exercise for at least 60 minutes most days of the week. It doesn’t have to be incredibly vigorous. A light jog, a game of kickball, or riding bikes will do the trick.

Your new year, mom and dad
We are about one week into the new year — how are you doing with your resolutions? If you didn’t make any resolutions this year, consider taking the time to commit to one small healthy change.

Here are some suggestions: • Don’t eat after 7 p.m. • Drink a healthy protein shake for breakfast. • Cut out that daily sugary snack. • Exercise a minimum of 4 days each week. • If you’re not weight training, start! Now that you have picked one healthy change, practice it for one month and then pick another, and so on and so on. One small step at a time to ensure success! Most successes do not come by heroic effort, but by consistent commitment. Take little steps.

Problem solving with less stress for teens
eenage years are undoubtedly the most difficult time in life. With hormones running amok, friendships can take the brunt of it. Sensitivity from parents is particularly important to soothe hurt feelings, assist with problem solving and prevent further angst. Helping a teen analyze a problem will hopefully ward off future problems. Taking time to discuss how things look from different perspectives is productive.

T

Sheri Hitchings You and Your Kids

Did the effort actually work? Why or why not? (“Was the problem solved in a positive way? What would he do differently?”) Google “Bloom’s Taxonomy” for more ideas.
Evaluation:

A guiding question a parent might ask is: “If what you do and say speaks so loudly, is your friend hearing the truth of what you’re saying and feeling in your heart?”

be to empower your teen. Conclude your conversation with an opportunity for him to affirm himself, asking “What did you do or see yourself doing to solve the problem?” A healthy affirmation from your teen would sound like, “I can___.” For example, “I can solve this problem by _____.” Remember, it may not be the way you choose to solve the problem, but it promotes his thinking.

Keep the stress level down
Stress is an attitude. Problem solving isn’t necessarily easy, and it takes a lot out of a teen. So consider the stress your teen has, and don’t amplify problems. Ask yourself, “How can I help ____ meet his needs?” Coping mechanisms for stress include avoiding negative people, anticipating needs and having your child ask, “Is this person really a friend that I should have?” and “What kind

of a support network of people is important to me?” Physically and mentally, when your teen’s stress level is lower, a bonus for him is your enhanced listening skills. Listen, compliment, smile, and relate thoughts that clearly show you appreciate his good thinking and value his choices. Most important, acknowledge his thinking skills. Not only will he appreciate it, but you all benefit in the end! “Let your child be a teenager he or she wants to be, not the adolescent you were or wish you had been.” —author unknown.

drive from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 5, and Sunday, Jan. 6, in the St. Joseph Marello parking lot, 7200 AuburnFolsom Road, Granite Bay. Items to be collected include: non-perishable food items, clothing, coats, blankets, furniture and household items, toys, games, bicycles, books, sleeping bags, prescription eye glasses (especially for children), old cell phones and personal hygiene kits (travel-size toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, soap, comb, wash cloth and/or small towel in a one-gallon plastic bag). For information, call (916) 7915666 or e-mail tdarcey@rcsis.com.

Encouraging thinking with blooms taxonomy
Using Bloom’s Taxonomy, a hierarchy of thinking skills, have your child reflect on his problem solving. Each step leads to a higher level of thinking. Begin with the lowest level, knowledge.
Knowledge: Discuss the facts. (“What happened?”) Comprehension: Find out what he understands about the problem. (“Describe the problem.”) Application: He applies what he has learned. (“If ____ then _____.”) Analysis: Did it work? Or what needs changing? (“Now that you have thought about ___, what do you conclude about ____?”) Synthesis: He puts the information together in a different way or tries something he didn’t think about before. (“What can I predict will happen if ___?”)

When a peer problem develops
Choose a quiet time when your teen will listen. Don’t bird walk — just stick to the point. Consider your teen may or may not want to hear your own experiences. Also, develop your teen’s listening skills because your teen needs to solve his problems alone at times and not be exclusively dependent on your opinion. If asked for your thoughts, follow up with open-ended questions, such as, “How can I help you through this problem?” If this mental exercise doesn’t appear to help, in your opinion, then probe by asking, “What I heard you say is ___. Is that correct?” “Tell me more about it, so we can brainstorm together.” The end result should

Hole 13 at Carmel Valley Ranch, which treats golfers to some dramatic tees.

Eclectic, picturesque Carmel is a ‘must visit’
BY JEFFREY WEIDEL
VIEW CORRESPONDENT

CARMEL VALLEY RANCH ACTIVITIES
• Golf, 18-hole, Pete Dye-designed course • Guided or unguided hiking trails that double as running and walking trails • Tennis courts, featuring seven hard courts and two clay courts • Cooking classes • Salt-water swimming pool (adults only) • Separate family area, includes swimming pool, basketball courts, Bocce ball area • Huge fitness/spa center • Harvesting honey • Organic garden area to explore • Kids Camp • Free S’mores every evening

ituated in picturesque Monterey County, Carmel is one of those places people designate as a “must visit.” Of course, the main lure is the ocean views. Stunning might not be descriptive enough to characterize the rugged coastal scenery that makes Carmel and Monterey two of the most alluring destinations worldwide. Downtown Carmel, roughly a one-square-mile village, features small cottages, modest homes, upscale art galleries, plus both trendy and homespun restaurants. And if you care to do some star gazing, drop by the Hog’s

S

Breath Inn for a possible glimpse of famed Hollywood actor Clint Eastwood, its owner. He’ll be the guy sipping on a beer or glass of wine, maybe even sitting next to an empty

chair, having an imaginary chat with President Obama! One more thing about eclectic downtown Carmel — it has no street numbers. Its early occupants were mainly artists

who built their homes and preferred naming them rather than having numerical addresses. Ocean Avenue is the appropriately named main drag in downtown Carmel. Follow it heading west and eventually one winds up staring face-toface at the gorgeous green-blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. Although rarely referenced, the official name for Carmel is Carmel-by-the-Sea, which seems pretty ridiculous. We get it, Carmel is by the ocean! Obviously the most well known and frequented areas of Carmel are its ocean enclaves. But there’s actually a much less-traveled area of this famed California city that’s also a great

tourist destination.

The ‘other’ Carmel
Literally tucked away in the majestic forests of the San Lucia Mountains is the Carmel Valley, a 20-minute drive from Monterey. Unlike the costal weather, which is often overcast and ensconced in a sunblocked marine layer of clouds, the Carmel Valley receives approximately 300 days of sunshine and the temperatures are naturally warmer. To totally escape the masses, visitors can choose one of the many lodges, garden inns and small accommodations that reside just off scenic Carmel Valley Road. If the goal is finding a

It’s one of those places where you can park the car upon entering and never drive it again until check-out day.

table and discuss the menu selections, which are very diverse. He’s a hands-on chef who often makes his own trips to purchase from area fishermen, farmers and organic growers. The Lodge Restaurant is definitely a farm-to-table cuisine.

Wine tasting
Although there is no real need to leave the Ranch, a pleasant escape is visiting Carmel Valley Village, a six-mile drive. This quaint area, located off scenic Carmel Valley Road, has 17 wine-tasting rooms and is a noted Pinot Noir region. Wineries include Talbot, Boekenoogen, Bernardus and Figge. The Village also includes a number of shops, galleries and restaurants, most of them with outdoor seating. For more information on Carmel Valley Ranch, visit www.carmelvalleyranch.c om or call (855) 687-7262.

Scenic golf course
For golfers, the par-70 course is short (6,117 from back tees) and the mostly flat-land front 9 is an exercise in target golf with some penalizing holes. However, the hilly backside is a major treat, featuring dramatic, elevated tees on three holes, including the 141-yard par-3 at No. 13. Carmel Valley Ranch is a fun track overall, that’s tight on the front side, but opens up on the back, where every hole is unique. A bonus is the frequent deer sightings, which on this October day included several dozen on the nature-preserved, tree-lined back 9. Guests pay $145 and $85 for afternoon tee times.
