Every month, we rejoice when we put the finishing touches on all of these pages full of stories, photographs and advertisements that shine light on some of the most wonderful things about the North State. And as soon as we send that issue off to the printer, what do we have? Another stack of new blank pages, waiting to be filled.

The new year is much the same. We reflect on the year that is on its way out, and compile our list of resolutions as we dream about how we’re going to fill this new chapter of our lives called “2016.” What will your pages include? 

We love watching people follow their dreams, and we’re delighted to give you an update on Christine Silver, who owned the popular Redding eatery Tapas Downtown until she moved to Humboldt County two years ago. Today, her passion for preparing healthy, beautiful food is enjoyed daily by patrons of her two North Coast restaurants.

Imagine being the very best of the best at your craft. Up in McCloud is a modern-day Paul Bunyan – Rolin Eslinger, an extreme lumberjack who holds a world record for hand sawing. He’s won numerous national championships in axe throwing and chainsaw work, and his success is the result of practice, tenacity and the will to win. Of similar drive is Kaden Love, an 18-year-old nationally ranked gymnast with his sights set on the Olympics.

If you’re looking to learn a little more about the place we call home, have we got a treat for you. Soon, you’ll be able to use your phone to scan square labels on several historical sites downtown and learn more about how they came to be. It’s a joint effort between Shasta Historical Society and Viva Downtown Redding, spearheaded by some folks who are trying to make local history fun and interesting. 

Take a leap of faith this year. Ask new questions. Dream new dreams. Be there for one another. Here’s to a new year full of wonder, growth and peace. And, as always, enjoy!
