Summer’s sizzle is upon us, so grab an icy beverage and find somewhere cool to savor the imaginative collection of stories that we’ve gathered for your enjoyment this month.

You’ll be inspired by Amanda Goyne Mooneyham, who grew up in Redding, won gold in the Deaf Olympics and went on to become a doctor. She came back home to share her expertise and compassion with patients at Shasta Community Health Center. Then meet Kathleen Evans, who decided she wanted to build a plane – and did exactly that.

It’s always cooler by the river, and not only is Redding’s Aqua Golf a fun and inexpensive way to kill some time, but it’s one of just a handful of aquatic driving ranges in the country. Ready to hit a bucket of balls?

We’re still a few 100-degree days away from autumn, but we’ll give you some tips for updating your summer wardrobe so it’s fresh for fall. In the meantime, check out our beauty tips that will keep you looking fabulous even in the relentless heat.

And if you need a respite from those soaring summer temperatures, why not let Northern California’s lighthouses guide your way along the coast? Their histories are unique and fascinating, and you can enjoy the ocean’s mist on your face while you explore.

This month’s downtown spotlight is on Chico, where diverse shops, interesting community events and iconic architecture create a vibe that welcomes all.

Don’t forget to join us under the stars at Enjoy Movies in the Park, which will be at Enterprise Community Park in August. The free movies start at dusk.

Enjoy the last stretch of summer!
