    Hooray for viva Redding!!! . . . and for Renaissance Redding . . . and for that other group whose name has gone off site but they are a young, vital, enthusiastic group. . . and ALL of them are promoting Redding.

    BTW . . a side note having to do with downtown Redding. In talking to a friend recently, he made the comment that the train station was such an eye sore and dark and dangerous an not a place he wanted to have to go to meet a train in the middle of the night. WRONG ON ALL ACCOUNTS!!!

    I left from there a couple of weeks ago. 2:30 a.m. please let me report: THE TRAIN STATION IS CLEAN, WELL REPAIRED, WELL LIT AND THE WAITING ROOM IS OPEN. Sometimes dearly held notions are difficult to dispel.

  2. Looking forward to this event!

    I'd like to see Park Marina developed into a real destination point. First class restaurant (maybe three or four) boutique type stores owned by local business folks, with great clothes, jewelry, etc. Out door seating along the river side, while keeping in mind the local water foul that frequent and are comfortable there. A great coffee shop (not Starbucks) but a locally owned, really cool place. I'm talking small shops, yet unique, like they have in Cambria, CA No franchises allowed on Park Marina!

    That beautiful piece of property across the street should be turned into a park of sorts, where folks can go with their dogs, for quiet sitting to read, have a sack lunch or bought lunch. Not a playground for children, but a quiet place for adults, dogs and children. A place where one could spread a blanket, have conversation and relax. How great would that be!
