Community Advocate Known for High-End Custom Guitars

Jason Schroeder unlocks the door of his south Redding guitar workshop and steps into the unassuming, sunlit space. He’s just come from a meeting with businessmen Ed Rullman and Mike Dahl – wearing his “community advocacy hat” – but switches easily to the labor that pays the bills, gives him schedule flexibility, and, most notably, [...]

Up on The Rooftop, Black Bear Paws

Some years back, I was driving through Igo late one night. I slammed on my brakes as I rounded a corner. There, in the middle of the road, staring at me through the windshield, was a huge mountain lion. It turned its head, and continued walking across the road. I later learned that cat had [...]

Matt’s Chats with Colin Wright; Redding is Among World Traveler’s Upcoming Stops

Meet Colin Wright, a renaissance man of the digital age.  His internet footprint is a wonder to behold but I think his travel habits are truly mind blowing.  Every four months he moves to a new country he’s never lived in before, as chosen by his readers. This means I can sit on my couch [...]

Matt’s Chats with Christine Cantera

Over the years I’ve built a number of friendships entirely on the Internet.  Either by luck or coincidence, I’ve stumbled across some fascinating, funny, talented, amazing people and while the relationships are virtual, the friendships aren’t.  It’s really cool to get to know someone on the other side of the world without ever so much as [...]
