Matt’s Chats with Shelley Ridgley: The Low Down from the Woman Down Under

Meet my friend Shelley Ridgley, tucked away Down Under in Australia.  I like to think of her as my Friend From the Future because she’s in a time zone 18 hours ahead of me, which means just as I’m starting my Monday morning, she’s already moved on to Tuesday. It’s probably as close to time travel as I’m [...]

Free Therapy # 54: Free to Be Who We Are

Okay so here’s the deal. I figured out a long time ago what I was here for and it has made my life a little easier to know that secret. I am here to serve. My life is all about service and surrender. Knowing that has helped me a lot. It does not mean I [...]

Fresh Faces, Strong Performances Add a Hop to Riverfront’s ‘Harvey’

Elwood P. Dowd doesn’t sweat the small stuff. In fact, for a guy who is fast friends with a 6-foot-tall rabbit that nobody else can see, he is pretty darn chill. And therein lies the charm of “Harvey,” which opened a five-weekend run last Saturday at Riverfront Playhouse. Brian Storm, who is making his Riverfront [...]

Pot and Public Safety Top Topics of Tuesday’s City Council Meeting

The thorny issue of public safety, or the growing lack thereof, surfaced repeatedly at Tuesday’s meeting of the Redding City Council. It first popped up in the form of a proposal by Councilman Gary Cadd to prohibit the outdoor cultivation of medical marijuana within city limits, much as last November’s passage of Measure A banned [...]

When I finally made the confession, he said, “So now we can just start calling [...]

Just Sayin’: You’ve Got a Peeve, I’ve Got a Peeve. All God’s Chillun Got Peeves

You think you don’t have any peeves? Oh, come on now. Sure you do. We all have peeves. You know, it’s that little something that consistently annoys us, but not enough to do something about. Or else it’s the something over which we have no control,  but annoys us anyway. It may be something never [...]
