October 2013

Happy birthday to us! October marks seven years that we have been sharing the North State’s most inspirational stories and photographs with you. Never did we imagine that our crazy idea would have become what it is today – a magazine that still makes us burst with pride every time the truck delivers those beautiful boxes every month. Not only does it represent the hard work of our publishers, editors, photographers, designers and advertising salespeople, but it also represents the fabric of our community – the incredible people, fascinating places, forward-thinking advertisers and devoted readers that make this such a delightful place to live.

This month is no exception, and we’re thrilled to peek into the life of John Martin Streeby, the creative mind behind the metal sculptures scattered around the North State. We’re particularly fond of the salmon that leap from Highway 44’s median.

Our arts scene seems to get more robust by the month, and Michael Franti’s upcoming appearance at the Cascade Theatre seems to underscore that. “I want to make music that makes people feel excited to live,” he says.

We love a good people-helping-people story, and Restoration Enterprises is a perfect example of that. This business gives folks the opportunity to change their lives with a helping hand, not a handout, and the results speak for themselves.

What’s better than having a fantastic time while helping charity? The Rising Stars Gala benefits Whiskeytown Environmental School and Schreder Planetarium, and Music and Merlot will help keep music alive in three Cottonwood schools. Sip some vino, enjoy some home-grown music, visit with friends and help kids learn more about science and the arts – it’s a can’t-lose prospect.

Of course, October is also the perfect time to reap a harvest of fun, and we’ll share tips for picking a perfect pumpkin, cooking up some fall treats, crafting like a pro and dressing for trick-or-treat success. It will be a smashing good time.

Celebrate with us! Thank you for seven exhilarating years, and we look forward to many more.
