WEDDINGS

5 W hen choosing the perfect and magical location

FABULOUS FOOTHILL
for a wedding, the foothills has a number of
options varying from luscious green golf courses
to quaint cottages to inns to rustic barns to picturesque
gardens.

WEDDING VENUES It is rare to find event locales that offer such an array of
settings, so close in proximity to one another.
When in need of that ideal spring/summer wedding
venue, look no further than your backyard. Here are five
BY NOELLE KONRAD venues that create a destination-wedding atmosphere
without the costly air fare.

1.
Auburn Valley Golf Club
Cant decide between
an indoor or an outdoor
ceremony and reception?
Auburn Valley Golf Club as a wedding
venue is designed for both. Tall trees
offer shade at the ceremony site.
Once the bride and groom say I do
the party begins. The reception hall is
lined with open windows that overlook
the manicured course. Perfect for any
spring or summer wedding.

2.
Monte Verde Inn
If quaint and charming are
sought after, this wedding
venue is the ideal destination.
This is an all-inclusive experience with
hassle-free elegance. Monte Verde has a
variety of wedding backdrops for photos.
They have beautiful English-inspired
gardens, a small vineyard, a rustic
barn and a manor that dates back to
1939. The whimsical bed-and-breakfast
ceremony site has shade to stave off the
unbearable heat of warmer weather,
keeping guests cool and content.

The Ridge
An intimate ceremony,
ballroom with a view, and a
location that is a getaway
located right off Interstate 80. Not
only as a wedding venue, but as an
event center, this particular setting
is one of the more popular for any
occasion. Enjoy the heart of the
foothills as the backdrop for a classic
wedding feel.

HEALTH

On the look out


CHECK FOR TICKS WHEN SPENDING TIME OUTDOORS
BY JULIE MILLER PHOTO BY NOELLE KONRAD

W
ith spring and the outdoors beckoning, a few
precautions are in order. Along with too much
sun, poison oak and mosquitos, Foothill residents
need be on the look out for ticks.
Thankfully, Placer County is low-risk for Lyme disease,
according to the Center for Disease Control.
The disease is caused by a bacterium that ticks carry and
through a bite, it is transferred to humans.

Whos at risk?
Fortunately, most of California is low risk, compared to
the north eastern coastal states, as well as Wisconsin and
Minnesota. These are the hotbed states for the greatest risk
of Lyme, said Dr. Randall L. Steffens. But if we look at the
relative risk within California, there are three counties in the
northwestern portion that are the greatest risk; Mendocino,
Humboldt, and Trinity. Placer county is considered very
low risk.
Steffens is the medical director at StallantHealth in
Weimar and specializes in family medicine, emergency
medicine and geriatrics.
I have a special interest in Lyme disease because both
me and my wife experienced this infection about seven
years ago, when we lived on a small farm in Tennessee, he
said.
Steffens recommends, as does the Center for Disease
Control, that when outdoors: wear repellent, check for
ticks daily, shower soon after being outdoors and call your
doctor if there is a fever or rash.
Despite the low-risk, the chance of getting a tick bite is
escalating with a rising rodent population.
The biggest culprits are mice and deer. Even though deer
have historically been thought to be the primary host, deer
only account for 1 percent of the spread. Mice account for
80 to 95 percent of disease promotion. Deer keep the adult
ticks alive so they can reproduce. Mice are essential as the
host for nymphs. Together, they account for the explosion
of Lyme in recent decades, Steffens said.

The Sinclairs sell beef, pork and goat at local farmers markets and
