The Kindness of Highlanders

Two traits I’ve noticed about Highlanders are that they look out for each other, and they know everything about each other. The first is a consequence of remoteness – so far away from “civilization,” people have drawn together and helped each other out for generations. The second thing can go either way – there are [...]

New West Side Trail Connection

The Westside Trail is a gem, a multi-faceted gem. The main trail and its access trails provide more than 8 miles of adventure, the destination of which are the vistas provided by traveling along the ridge, which is the western skyline of the city Redding. This trail is the result of the vision of a [...]

Free Therapy # 56: The Meaning of My Pain

I am in pain.  I am not the only one. I feel like a self-absorbed baby even writing about it.  It is not “manly” to admit I hurt.  I know better of course.  I am well-acquainted with the heavy burden men carry in our culture to be tough.  Or at least to appear tough and [...]

Susan Greaves’ Weekend Painting Workshop: “Color, Shape, Edges” for All Levels of Artists

Invasion from Minnesota: The Proposed Moody Flats Quarry Project

The Moody Flats Quarry Project needs to be put into context because it is so easy to decide it is not that big a deal because it will happen over the next 100 years.  I believe that it is going to be a big, ugly boil on the nose of Shasta County.  Not only is [...]

Redding Attorney Pat Wallace Remembered for Humor, Love of Family and Friends

Patrick “Pat” Earl Wallace, whose life was sadly cut short on Feb. 3, 2015, due to complications from Hodgkin’s lymphoma, will be remembered as a loving husband, devoted father, faithful friend, dedicated attorney, a San Francisco Giants fan and the type of guy whose company people wanted to keep. Pat was born April 20, 1952, [...]

Free Therapy # 55: The Happiness Trap and the Peaceful Prize

As I have mentioned in previous columns, for about the last 10 years I have primarily relied on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in my work with my clients.  ACT is one of the relatively new “Third Wave” forms of Behavior Therapy that relies on mindfulness, acceptance, commitment and behavior change strategies to achieve its clinical [...]

Menu Please: El Delicioso Burrito: Don’t Fear Gas Station Cuisine

Jane and Michael Stern, those chroniclers of true American food, wrote in their 1986 travelogue-cum-cookbook “Real American Food” of the Southern phenomena of combining food and unrelated commerce: “Drive along a country road in the Mississippi Delta and you will come across Upholstery Repair-Catfish Parlors, Flats Fixed-Barbecues, and Seamstress-Tamale Stands.”   In “American Fried,” journalist [...]
