here are hundreds of trails for run-
ning, walking, biking and even
horseback riding.
Some of them are surprisingly unpopulat-
ed, if you know where to look.
Just ask Anne Casagrande, or any member
of the gO! Running Group, a team of both
casual and serious runners organized at Fleet
Feet, a running store in Roseville.
“Cool has some of the best trails any-
where,” said Casagrande. “I especially love
running on trails near the water, so Folsom
Lake trails around Lake Natoma are favorites,
as well.”
David Heitman, gO! team member, loves
trail runs in the foothills.
“I like running in Cool and Auburn. The
views keep you coming back,” Heitman said.
When it comes to enjoying the outdoors
from a higher vantage point, Los Lagos
Equestrian, Inc. in Granite Bay offers trail
riding for both beginners and experienced
equestrians.
“Our program caters to beginners from 3
years old to the more advanced riders,” said
Heather Kelly, the center’s barn manager.
Riders can enjoy trails that run from Los
Lagos all the way to Cool, and down to Sacra-
mento, heading in the opposite direction.
If you prefer getting wet, you’ll want to visit
Wake Island Watersports, located off Baseline
Road in Pleasant Grove. The facility offers
wakeboarding, wakeskating and paddle
boarding. The 80-acre park offers a two-tow-
er cable system for beginners and a five-tow-
er system for those with experience.

Such is life at Party in the Park,
Auburn’s annual celebration of
music, food and all around fun.
Free to all comers (though there
is a charge for some of the chil-
dren’s activities, and food and
drink will be for sale) the party
takes place in Auburn Regional
Park.
“We’ve never had funk at Par-
ty in the Park,” said organizer
Scott Holbrook. “And Pure Roots
brings a combination of old and
new school reggae. We are
always trying to keep the music
fresh. We’ve done Americana,
reggae, zydeco, country … we
try to get bands that attract
younger groups and still keep
Grandma and Grandpa happy.”
Holbrook is a board member
of the Auburn Recreation Dis-
trict (ARD). With his experience
as a part-time concert promot-
er, he enjoys the challenge of
bringing quality, accessible

music to the masses.
“When I see all of the happy faces, I
get a ton of satisfaction,” he said. “If I
can present serious musicians in a
beautiful park setting, I am combining
my two passions, ARD and live music.
It’s always magical; it’s always fun.”
Pure Roots, from Santa Cruz, play
what they call “roots reggae with a mes-
sage.”
“We are trying to convey a message
through our music to better educate
and spread love amongst the world,”
drummer Jeff Allgrove said. “We want
people to take a look at this new band
out of Santa Cruz and expect to see us
on festival lineups.”
Tim Bain, guitarist for Mojo Green,
grew up in Colfax.
“This sounds like a great time,” Bain
said. “We definitely consider ourselves
comfortable as a festival band. Our
main goal is to get people to dance.
We’re very high energy; we’re really into
connecting with the crowd. It’s all about
encouraging people to cut loose and let
it all go on the dance floor.”
The crowd ranges from extended
families to fans of the bands. Beer and
wine and then some are sold in the food
court, but problems are few and far
between.
“I have never seen an incident there,
never,” said Bart Ruud. “That’s a testa-
ment to our law enforcement. You see a
happy crowd, people who come year
after year, arrive early to throw their
blanket down and stake out a spot from
where they might view the stage.”
Rudd has spent most of his Party in
the Park hours manning the barbecue
for one of the many service clubs selling
food and drink. This year in the food
court, in addition to grilled meat, you’ll
find everything from pizza to veggie
wraps.
“When you have something like this,
service clubs make a few dollars and
that goes back into the community,”
Ruud said.
Keith Nesbitt, a member of the Auburn
City Council, said he likes the idea of out-
side money finding its way to local char-
ities and needs.
And while it is a free event — and parks
and picnic baskets go hand in hand —
anything you spend at, say, his Rotary
Club’s booth, will be put to good use in
the community.
“I spend half the time working the
Rotary booth and the other half listen-
ing to music,” Nesbitt said.
If you don’t like the music this year
there’s a good chance it will be different
next.
“It’s all good,” Ruud said. “It gives peo-
ple a social evening, an adventurous
evening.”

omedian Paula Pound-
stone first garnered atten-
tion in San Francisco com-
edy clubs in the early ’80s, catching
the eye of Robin Williams.
Poundstone has authored a
book, “There is Nothing in This
Book That I Meant to Say,” won two
cable ace awards for her comedy
specials, and released a live CD, “I
Heart Jokes.” She is also a regular
panelist on the hit NPR game show,
“Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me.”
When did you realize you had the
difference between just being funny
around the water cooler versus
being able to take the stage on TV?
“Well I suppose to anyone else
it’s gaining access and practice. I
was lucky enough to have a come-
dy scene in Boston sort of rise up ...
where I lived. Then they had open
mic nights and anybody who wants
to can go up and do five minutes.
The audience got in for free back
then, so we had big audiences. I got
started doing that and just kept
working at it which was the key to
the whole thing.”
Were there certain comedians
who influenced your take on
humor?
“When I was young, I was lucky
enough to be allowed to stay up
when “Laugh In” was on and so I
was a huge Lily Tomlin fan. ... I cer-
tainly loved the sound of laughter
and I love the comedy stuff from
the time I was a little kid.”
Who attends your shows?
“I work
through
three
genera-
tions on
a lot of nights. I
don’t work to tons and tons of
young people but, often families
come to my shows, it’s not replete
with families … I’m not The Wig-
gles.”
How did you get involved with
‘Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me’?
“They called me up and asked
me. I had never heard of it, this
would be about
13 years or so
ago. They sent
me an audio
tape which I had
laying on my
island in my
kitchen, and I
had a nanny at
the time who
saw the tape and said, ‘Oh I love
that show you have to do that
show.’ So I did.”
I notice that you represent the
libraries. How did you get involved
with that?
“When I had written my book
and I was promoting it, I was asked
to come read from it and speak
about it at a library event. I did that
and I enjoyed it then we sort of
hooked up for other things. You
know, it’s hardly controversial. I’ve
yet to have to crash picket lines
with ‘no more libraries’ signs.”

he Rotary Clubs of Cameron Park and El
Dorado Hills have partnered up again to
present Wine at Town Center, a longtime
social event for the region.
Wine at Town Center will be held from 6-9 p.m.,
Saturday, June 14, at the Town Center in El Dorado
Hills.
Now in its 19th year, Wine at Town Center was
conceived as an opportunity to showcase El Dorado,
Amador and San Joaquin County wineries, brew-
eries and local restaurants and at the same time pro-
vide funding for local Rotary programs, said Rotary
member Debra Miller.
According to Miller, the event, from its first year,
has proven to be a success and has become one of
the area’s prestige events. Last year, the event
brought in 1,000 samplers of wines from the finest
regional wineries, beer from local breweries and
selected foods from a number of local restaurants.
Guests will also enjoy live music in two locations
at the event. In the amphitheater The Used Blues
Band with special guest, Blues Hall of Fame mem-
ber, Darrell Mansfield will perform.
Also, local favorite Tim Dierkes will perform at the
north end concourse.
The Rotary Clubs of Cameron Park and El Dorado
Hills are devoted to the youth both in our commu-
nity and throughout the world working closely with
Rotary International, Miller said. Together they pro-
vide educational and health programs where a need
exists, she said.
Wine at Town Center tickets are $45 and can be
purchased at Nugget Markets in El Dorado Hills, the
California Welcome Center in Town Center, El Dora-
do Hills Fire Department offices and the El Dorado
Hills Community Services District office. Tickets are
also available online.

El Dorado
County Fair returns
Father’s Day
weekend
story by laura newell
entertainer
COURTESY
W
hen remembering summer
moments, family memories at
the El Dorado County Fair
over Father’s Day weekend come to mind
for many around the region.
Now, fair officials want to make those
memories come to life with this year’s
theme, “Photos, Fathers and Fair.”
The Fair runs Thursday, June 12 through
Father’s Day, Sunday, June 15, at the fair-
grounds in Placerville.
“We’ve been holding our annual fair over
Father’s Day weekend for many years now
and this year it’s especially fun because we
get to celebrate our El Dorado County
dads, grand-dads and father figures as part
of the Fair theme,” said Jody Gray, CEO of
the El Dorado County Fair. “We put a call
out asking people to post their best photos
of their favorite dads, or favorite ‘father fig-
ure,’ on our Facebook page and the
response has been amazing.”
In addition to being displayed on the
fair’s Facebook page, prints of the photos
will be on exhibit in the foyer of the Forni
Building and throughout the grounds as
decoration during the fair.
“Dads don’t get enough attention in this
world, it’s great to see them being celebrat-
ed,” said Gray, who submitted a photo of her
father taken before he passed away in 1984.
The county fair kicks off at noon, Thurs-
day, June 12, at the El Dorado County Fair-
grounds and features four full days of
exhibitions, contests and competitions,
concerts and events, carnival rides and
fair food.
According to Gray, special attractions
not to miss this year include two concerts
by Life in the Fast Lane Eagles tribute band
on Friday, June 13; the ‘60s tribute band
Summer of Love in a 90-minute concert on
Saturday, June 14; Wild About Monkeys
performing three times daily and Roberto
the Magnificent performing twice daily.
Animals will also take center stage for
guests and this year will feature plenty of
critters and their keepers.
Traditional livestock competitions and
exhibits, including the Ranch Horse Show
and the Junior Livestock Auction, take
place throughout the fair’s four-day run.
Humpz and Hornz Bull Riding, ranch
sorting and mutton busting will also be
featured.
Other activities include cooking
demonstrations, Clifton and Warren’s Kids
Corral games, wheelbarrow racing, big
wheel racing, a full schedule of music and
dozens of contests and competitions.
For more information and a full schedule
of activities, visit eldoradocountyfair.org.

T
he Clarksville pioneer cemetery sits on a hill-
side overlooking Highway 50, overgrown with
weeds. Until recently, it was protected only by
a rickety fence.
The fence has been replaced and the historic resting
place for many of those who founded the area is about
to get a little help from some friends during a fundrais-
er on June 7.
Jim and Erlinda Vindler, owners of Vindler Real
Estate & Acquisitions in El Dorado County, said with
their children grown, they’ve taken some other proj-
ects under their wings.
“We’ve spent over 20 years in our community and
feel it’s time to give back,” Jim said. “In Placerville,
we’re involved in restoring the old city hall and (other
projects).”
Jim said he’s always had an interest in history and
had aspirations of becoming an archeologist when he
was in college, but it wasn’t practical. So now he gets to
dive into his passion while giving back to the commu-
nity. When they opened
their El Dorado Hills
office, they wanted to do
something special.
“There is so little local
history in El Dorado Hills
and we wanted to do
something here,” Jim
said. “We contacted the
historical society and
there is such a beautiful
location up at the ceme-
tery.”
The Vindlers are donat-
ing a portion of the proceeds of every sale made in the
El Dorado Hills office to the restoration of the ceme-
tery.
“We want to find more of the unmarked graves,
restore grave markers and install a gate,” he said.
From noon-4 p.m., June 7, at their real estate office
at 4540 Post St., Suite 230, in El Dorado Hills, people
can enjoy food, live music and board a shuttle to tour
the cemetery.
“We’re going to have hamburgers and hotdogs and
drinks,” Jim said.
Betty January, with the Clarksville Region Historic
Society, is thrilled with the support.
“We’ve got the fence up and it’s paid for,” said Janu-
ary. “Now we’re raising funds for the gate and archway
with the metal letters to go across from pillar to pillar.
That’s our next step to securing the cemetery. Then it
will be secure.”
January said it takes a lot of work to get the cemetery
ready for tours.
“We are in the process of cleaning it. We have to
mow and (cut) weeds and get it all spruced up,” she
laughed. “The California Conservation Corps boys
have been with us for three years and they come up
and do the cleaning. Those boys are just a great asset
to us.”

Calaveras Big Trees offer
family friendly nature walk
A
bout a two-hour drive from
Folsom and El Dorado Hills,
tucked off Highway 4 near
Murphys, is the
Calaveras Big
Trees State Park.
Known for the
North Grove Trail,
the gentle 1.5-
mile loop is well-
graded and easily
accessible. For
those using
strollers, it
shouldn’t present
a problem.
On a recent sunny afternoon, I
loaded up the kids (ages 3 and 5) to
explore this park.
The Discovery Tree, also known as The Big Stump, was the first of the giant
seqouias discovered in the grove. A year after its discovery, speculators cut it
down and stripped the trunk of its bark. You can still see the holes drilled in
the giant trunk since they didn’t have a saw large enough to do the job.
HOW TO GET THERE
Take Highway 50 to
Latrobe Road. Take
Latrobe to Highway 16
and turn left. Follow to
Highway 49 South. Stay
on 49 South through
Jackson. At Angel’s
Camp, take Highway 4
east to Arnold. The
Calaveras Big Trees State
Park is on the right, just
beyond the town. It’s
about 87 miles from Fol-
som, or about two hours.

DID YOU KNOW?
The seed cones are
4-7 cm long and
mature in 18-20
months, but can
remain green and
closed for up to 20
years. To disperse
their seeds, giant
sequioas require
outside forces such
as fire, insects, ani-
mals or high wind.

As a California native, specifically traveling to see the giant
sequoias is something I’ve wanted to do as an adult. When I
saw them as a kid, their significance and importance didn’t
take root.
Admission to the state park is $10. At the trailhead near
the parking lot, purchase a guide for 50 cents. This
helpful booklet will let you know what you’re look-
ing at, corresponding to numbers near the items of
interest.
The first stop is the Discovery Tree, also known
as the Big Stump. According to the book, the tree
was discovered in 1852 by a hunter named
Augustus T. Dowd. Word of the “giant trees”
soon spread throughout the world. The fol-
lowing year, the giant tree he discovered
was stripped of its bark and cut down by
speculators. “Since no saw was large
enough, the tree was felled with other
tools of (the) era – long-handled pump
augurs and wedges,” the book states. “It took
five men 22 days to drill all the holes, but the … tree did not fall for
several days.”
The giant stump was smoothed out and turned into a dance
floor. A bowling alley and bar were built on the fallen trunk (and
you can still see the cuts made in the tree where the support
beams were placed for the buildings). When the rings were count-
ed, the tree turned out to be 1,244 years old, measured more than 25
feet in diameter at the base and was more than 280 feet tall.
This walk is perfect for families with children or those who can’t
walk long distances. But, there is much more to the park than the
trail. I didn’t explore all the park has to offer, but if you go, there is
a trail to the river, campgrounds, a visitor center and museum.
With two young children in tow, I kept the trip short and to the
nature walk. Camping is allowed March through November.

Trees State Park. The park office can be reached by phone at

Tourists began to flock to the grove in the
1880s. Competition heated up and when
Yosemite carved out the Wawona Tunnel
Tree, the owners of the North Grove
carved out the Pioneer Cabin Tree.
In 1854, this tree was
stripped of its bark and
reassembled for display at exhi-
bitions in New York and Lon-
don. Known as the Mother of
the Forest, the tree’s bark was
removed in eight-foot sec-
tions (which took workers
90 days). Without its pro-
tective bark, the tree suc-
cumbed to fire in 1908.

A
ny month is a good month to learn self defense and Jason Froehlich
of the Folsom Martial Arts Center is offering a six-week women’s
street-wise self-defense course starting in June.
Froehlich, 40, has been teaching martial arts for 23 years, the last four of
which have been at his business located at 25075 Blue Ravine Rd., Suite 130.
The class is for females age 15 or older and is of great importance to
Froehlich.
“This course is really about street survival; it’s not about teaching some-
one how to fight,” Froehlich said. “It’s not about fighting; it’s not about
standing toe-to-toe and duking it out with someone. It’s about surviving.”
Froehlich said the class, which is offered Tuesday and Thursdays from
10 to 11 a.m. or Saturdays 8:30 to 10 a.m. beginning June 10, will teach
many things, including street smarts — how not to get yourself into a sit-
uation and if you do; how to survive. The class will be part seminar, part
workshop featuring hands-on training.

“I will put them in fear-based situations and teach them
what to do and coach them through their fear, adrenaline
and doubt,” Froehlich said. “They will be scared and the
adrenaline will be pumping if they’re ever in this situation,
but I will teach them how to use those things to their advan-
tage. When the class is over, the women will be confident
and know what to do in any situation.”
Among the topics covered includes five ways to be your
own bodyguard; simple and affective awareness strategies,
tactics to swiftly fend off and stop any physical attack, count-
er measures against someone following you, fast-action
response to home invasion and car jacking and overcoming
fear, panic or doubt by knowing how to deal with violence.
Any woman who is attacked is likely to be attacked by a
man and in most every case, it will be by a
man bigger and stronger than the victim.
Froehlich will teach the women how
to get away from such an attack
using simple physics.
“I have a 54-year-old woman I
teach that takes down 200-
pound men here,” Froehlich
said. “She understands how to
use physics and that’s what I
will teach.”
The most important aspect
to the class is awareness.
Froehlich said being aware of
the situation and listening to
your intuition is key.
Cost of the class is $379.
