Scott Thomas Anderson

eve all heard of romantic guitar playing, but do Americans know the term Roma guitar playing? Roma is a
word for the semi-mysterious, often persecuted and
globally dispersed culture commonly referred to as gypsies.
While romantic guitar playing and Roma guitar playing are
different phrases, in the 1920s one musical genius from Frances
gypsy camps proved that his peoples hard, nomadic heritage
makes for the most romantic guitar sounds in the word.
Aprils springtime weather is perfect for country driving,
and the Roma guitar can offer the ideal musical mediation for
cruising Placers rolling backroads.
The Gypsy Jazz legacy started with Django Reinhardt, who
was born in 1910 and grew up in a Roma caravan that moved
around Belgium and the outskirts of Paris. Django proved a
guitar virtuoso in the tiny cafs of central France, though his
career almost ended when an errant candle lit his covered gypsy wagon ablaze. His left hand was severely mutilated.
Django battled through the pain, ultimately creating an approach to playing guitar that only uses three fingers on the
fret board. This simple breakthrough allowed him to fuse the
soul of his Roma experience with Americas rising rhythms of
jazz. And so Djangos songs like Limehouse Blues and Minor
Swing are haunted by the excited speed of wandering through
life in the Old World, other times showing a lazily graceful energy in his soothing arpeggios. A composition in the vein of My
Serenade invokes the hesitant exuberance of strolling through
a European city at dusk, conjuring images of the West Bank at
sundown or films like Midnight in Paris.
And then there are pieces like When Day is Done, with its
opening barrage of haphazard chords, controlled by the exotic, ringing dance of Djangos delicate solos, the notes harking
back to his lonely gypsy childhood. Its a song where
his bending strings are filled with the operatic voice
of men destined for paupers graves its a sound
that gently cries with the longing lament of a refugee.
When Django died at the age of 43 hed given birth
to a cult following for Roma guitar that endures to this
day. One band capturing his spirit is Jazz Gitan, who will
perform at Nicholsons MusiCafe in Folsom on May 21
at 4 p.m. You can also buy Django Reinhardts Greatest
Hits on CD or Itunes for outdoor, sunlit driving. These
are songs made for cruising rustic vineyard roads or
turning on cliffside avenues along the ocean. They are
all that is left of a smoking, suit-clad gypsy, and they
show you how one man used Roma otherness as the
cornerstone of all thats quintessentially romantic.

BY SCOTT NOBLE

For centuries, the health


benefits of the Dead
Sea have been touted
as a wonder of nature.
Thousands still flock to
what is known as the
lowest and saltiest place
on earth, relaxing and
rejuvenating in waters
stirred with 29 percent salt
and a bevy of minerals.
It is said that a float in
the Dead Sea can help
with breathing, skin and
pain-related issues
washing people over with
a soothing, stress-relieving
experience. And Granite
Bay locals in search of
these natural benefits do
not need to book a flight
to Israel: they can simply
take a trip to SALTS on
Douglas Boulevard.

Centuries
of tradition,
new technology
collides for
health at SALTS
in Granite Bay.

ranite Bay resident Erica Colby


opened the business in December and has been pleased with its
growing popularity. Flotation therapy, salt
room Halotherapy and an Infrared Sauna
are all integral to the facilitys appeal.
I discovered Halotherapy after quite
a bit of research when looking for something to act as a preventative treatment
for lung issues, Colby recalled. My husbands side of the family has a history of
lung cancer, and I wanted to improve his
chances for long-term good health and
Halo seemed like a perfect fit.
Halo is a treatment in which people can
scrub their lungs of toxins by breathing
an aerosol salt vapor, which is created by
a special machine. Colbys chamber for
this treatment mimics the air quality of an
old salt mine. She likens the experience to
getting ones lungs worked with a toothbrush. Colby says one testament to the
benefits of Halo treatment involves studies of the lung health for European salt
miners compared to the general public.
The miners were found to have fewer toxins in their lungs and their overall
lung health, Colby pointed out. And
their lung capacity was much better than
say, the average person.
The casual, nondescript look of SALTS
business front has teased a lot of Granite
Bay residents to wandering in through
serendipitous chance.
Most people will walk in out of curiosity, Colby observed. After checking the
place out, they leave, do some research,
and eventually come back. After that,
they are usually hooked.
Kim Cota works part-time at the spa
and remembers that once she learned
what the treatments offered, she decided
to give each a try in an effort to subdue her
ongoing back issues. The infrared Sauna
and floating therapy both felt fantastic,
and Cota now enjoys informing potential
clients through her own story.
I have some pretty severe back problems and have tried other maintenancetype programs, such as hot yoga, chiropractic and acupuncture, which are great,
but after one session of Infrared Sauna,
I was able to stretch without pain, Cota
explained. Combining the Infrared Sauna

with float therapy has given me more
relief than any traditional pain management method.
With an education in psychology, Colby
believes her natural curiosity and penchant for research led to creating a facility
that is ideal for stress relief and promoting
physical health. She feels its the business
that she was always meant to run.
When I was looking for something to
improve our health, I was also looking
for a new business venture and it seems
SALTS pretty much found me, she acknowledged.
For a growing list of clients, SALTS is
also a relaxing escape from the daily grind.
The Halo room has six lounge chairs and
is extremely quiet, with the exception
of lulling instrumental music that drifts
above: Its dimensions are washed in soft
illumination, while one wall is adorned
with bricks of Himalayan salt blocks with
colored back lighting. Its floor is also covered in crushed salt, which contributes
to the air quality of the vaporizer. When
walking in, clients tend to feel a change of
the energy.
We live in a crazy world and we need
to take it down a notch once in a while,
Colby said.
There is also a childrens Halo room
in the front of SALTS where parents can
take their kids to help with allergies,
bronchitis and other maladies. Cota sees
it as a perfect method for helping with
kids health without subjecting them to
the kinds of dramatic treatments they
tend to dread.
They go in and there are toys, Cota
explained. Their parents are there with
them and they have fun while receiving
treatment for their lungs.
She added that the kids room is a testament to how safe the therapy is, as it
only uses salt.
The floatation room and Infrared Sauna are equipped with full showers, as
well as luxurious towels, cloths, robes,
and slippers for each client. The floatation room offers the option of low-tono light, along with piped-in music to
enhance the zero-gravity-like stress-relieving experience.

beach. You take in the heat and
get in the water to cool off and repeat.
The inside-out heating of the I-R
sauna also lets one stay in longer
which removes more toxins.

Erica Colby, SALTS owner

Colby describes the Infrared Sauna as


a process designed to heat from the inside out, while clients can periodically
exit the chamber to soak under the shower and then re-enter the sauna.
It is kind of like a day at the beach, she
said. You take in the heat and get in the
water to cool off and repeat. The inside-out
heating of the I-R sauna also lets one stay
in longer, which removes more toxins.
One very relaxed and satisfied SALTS
client, Karen Dunmoore of Granite Bay,
said she is glad she came back after checking the facility out. Dunmoore stopped in,
went home and researched the therapies.
Shes been coming in for regular treatments now for more than three months.
It only gets better with every visit,
Dunmoore noted, emphasizing that
SALTS therapies are more unique than
any others shes tried.

With SALTS treatment, I have a degree


of energy and clarity when I am done,
Dunmoore continued. Im ready to take
on the day. As far as pain management, I
dislike drugs and the I-R sauna and flotation are so much better when it comes to
my needs.
For Colby, an added bonus of opening
her business in her hometown of Granite
Bay has been that it has allowed her to
connect with the wider community. She
has been able to donate sessions at SALTS
to a recent cystic fibrosis benefit and shes
also hired Granite Bay High School students to work on her business photography for websites and social media.
We like where we live, so we really
wanted to open here, Colby stressed. I
really want to help any and all, and the
best place to start is at home and grow
from there.

Quilting

The Fabric

of our

Lives
BY THEA MARIE ROOD

n an era where most wedding and baby


gifts come from a discount chain store,
and hardly hold up to a few tumbles in
the dryer, there is something genuinely
unique about a handmade quilt. More
than a blanket, its a piece of art, one
made especially for you, and one you can
imagine handing down for generations.
Those fine-woven efforts will be on
display in Granite Bay on May 13 and 14.
The group putting on the show, the Roseville Quilters Guild, is seeing an upsurge in
numbers. Celebrating its 25th anniversary
this year, the guild began with 5 or 6 women, but now has 187 members. Forty-six of
them joined in the last 12 months.
We have lots of people wanting to join
and no cap on membership, said Sue Hoffman, Chair of the upcoming quilt show.
Most prospective members attend a
guild meeting either with a friend or on
their own. The get-togethers are held on
the third Wednesday of every month, at 9
a.m. sharp, at Creekside Church in Rocklin.
We have a hospitality chair who greets
people new to the guild, and makes them
feel welcome, Hoffman explained. And
the guild is very friendly.
In fact, like any group worth its salt, its
members have seen each other through
good times and bad.
My neighbor is 83 and was diagnosed
with Parkinsons, Hoffman recalled of the

12

woman who had mentored her through


her first quilting attempts in 2010, shortly
after Hoffman retired as a 7th grade science teacher. She was ready to give up
(the guild), but we wouldnt let her. We kept
sending her people who would say, I have a
problem with this quilt. Will you help me?
The guild accepts all levels of skill and
as in the case of Hoffmans neighbor
advanced members are readily available
to mentor beginners. But the guild also
works in mini-groups of 6 to 8 women
who can bring along a novice, as well as
inspire the veterans.
You learn so much just seeing what
other people are doing, Hoffman said.
And each year we do a mini-group challenge. Last year, we each did the same
pattern but using different fabrics.
The result of that challenge was that
each offering was individually beautiful
and completely distinct from the others.
For the guild, this is a good example of
how truly creative quilting is.
Until I retired, my creative outlet was
in the classroom, Hoffman acknowledged, and I found I really missed that.
Quilting has also entered the 21st Century. Although some quilters still use
the hand-piece method for designs, a
popular new piece of computer software
called EQ7 is increasingly be employed
by quilters for that same purpose. What

many members of the guild like about it


is that the program predicts how much
fabric they need for each part of a quilt.
By hand or by iPad, guild members
design quilts for a variety of reasons:
wedding and baby presents, visiting
grandchildrens twin beds, even to commemorate an important memory. Someone close to Hoffman recently lost a loved
one and had the relatives clothing made
into a quilt. Hoffman herself plans to create a photo quilt for each of her siblings
for Christmas this year, with special photographs from their childhood, each one
personalized. Shed also like to design a
quilt incorporating travel photos from her
and her husbands many road trips.
The skys the limit, she said with
a laugh.
But its not just guild members friends
and family who have the luxury of receiving a handmade quilt. The group also
engages in a fair amount of community
service, working with some 25 nonprofit
organizations that include the pediatric
wing of UC Davis and Kaiser hospitals,
homeless and womens shelters, veterans
organizations and respite care.
We did a project with the Head Start
preschools that included a 2x2 quilt, a
book and a stuffed animal that went with
the book, Hoffman explained. The kids
loved those.

BASS MAN
BY SCOTT THOMAS ANDERSON

From Humble Wolf


to Thunder Cover,
music teacher
rocks Californias
music scene.

lmost every morning David Albertson walks his corgishepherd Peso along the rail yard facing Vernon Street.
Rosevillains often wave from cars sailing by, though it
can be hard to get the 12-year music veterans attention. During
these daybreaks hes in a zone, and the city he grew up in fades
a little as he and Peso forge ahead. Until recently, glimpsing Albertson his four-legged sidekick near the switchyard was a daily
occurrence. But lately Rosevilles bass guitar bandit has been
scarce. Hes been hitting the road with multiple bands. Between
the continued ascent of Humble Wolf and nonstop jobs for his
tribute ensemble Thunder Cover, Albertson is beginning to travel almost as far as the dingy steel rails that reach through the
heart of the city.
Its about answering the call of the stage. For Albertson, the
thrill of connecting with the manic energy of a crowd the feeling of sending his bass notes into the ribs of dancing, shouting
people is almost as rewarding as his work teaching young
musicians to be Rosevilles next generation of performers.
A number of music fans view Humble Wolf as the regions
great rock hope. With two albums under its belt, the bands career keeps accelerating. It was crowned the top winner of the
Sammies music awards in 2015. It headlined the packed First
Festival in Sacramentos Southside Park. It recently played at Deschutes, the worlds largest street pub. Albertsons band mates
agree his incessantly creative bass lines are an engine behind
their momentum. His favorite Humble Wolf song is Black and

14

White, a high octane, guitar-driven paean that imagines what


the Beatles would have sounded like if they used a towering wall
of Marshal amplifiers on the The White Album.
One thing I think stands out about Humble Wolf is that
Jayson is a powerful singer-songwriter, Albertson said. He has
an ability to take the musical influences that all of our members
share and put a new spin on it.
Albertsons band mates share a similar view, as well as appreciation for the Bass Mans talents.
I have been working with David musically for 15 years and
there is no one better or more driven than him, Angove observed. He pushes me to be better and is a constant support in
my musical endeavors.
Despite Humble Wolfs growing popularity, Albertson has also
found time to form a tribute band called Thunder Cover, playing
hits from Queen and Nirvana, to the anthems of Michael Jackson and Garth Brooks. Albertson works with two of his Humble
Wolf compadres in this task, while also playing alongside Alex
Vincent and singer Laith Kaos.
Thunder Cover has been landing gigs from San Francisco and
Lake Tahoe all the way to Pendleton, Oregon. The band has been a
particular hit in casinos, bringing much needed musical levity to
the blinking lights, cracked corneas and spent dreams of the regions slot floors. Just gambled your retirement away? Well, sit back
and smile as Thunder Cover puts a spin on Another One Bites the
Dust before melting it into the King of Pops Billie Jean.

Lorrie Wilson is hailed
for seeing a brighter future
for local foster children.

ranite Bays LorrieWilson was recently honored by United Way for her
work supporting local foster kids.
Wilson, a 37-year veteran of the State
Department of Transportation, has been
retired for several years and now cochairs the Women in Philanthropy group,
which funds a variety of services and
education initiatives for some 396 foster children across a five-county region.
Wilson believes that foster children are
indeed the most deserving of her groups
efforts, as they are true victims of circumstance who through no fault of
their own have in most cases faced
tremendous hardship and abuse.
The programs Women in Philanthropy
fund for children and teens in the foster
system include financial training, where
each young person is provided with a
savings account and given matching
funds for any money that they save. Another program offers the kids a chance to
explore new jobs and careers, including
going on field trips to regional companies like Intel.
The number one career chosen by
foster kids when they grow up is social
worker, because its the one profession
they have experience with. Wilson said.
Now, social worker is a noble profession, but we want to show the kids all the
possibilities.
The work that Women in Philanthropy
does is primarily funded through membership fees, with the organization offer-

16

ing three levels of membership that range


from an annual $375 Bronze donation to
a $1500 per-year Gold membership status. While Wilson says the group is truly blessed with some 300 extraordinary
members in the region, her No. 1 goal
moving forward is to increase that membership total.
Women in Philanthropy also hold additional events and fundraising drives
with the public throughout the year.
Coming up on April 20 is its Towel
Drive, in which the ladies collect new
towels and other household goods for
teenagers who are aging out of the foster care system. The goal is to give them a
hand up by making sure they are starting
off well-equipped with basic items needed for every day life.
The honor Wilson was given in December by United Way for her role in this mission was presented by the California Capital Regions President, Stephanie Bray.
During a gala event, Bray told Wilson
and five other honorees, Your hard work,
dedication and dollars have changed thousands of lives: Because of you, more children at risk of falling behind are learning
to read at grade level. Because of you, more
children have access to meals through our
Healthy Meals program, which removes
the barrier of hunger for those children.
And, because of you, foster youth and families are connected with education and
coaching to achieve their financial and life
goals and dreams.

From

Granite Bay to Greece


on a

MISSION
BY ANDREW WESTROPE

Lifejackets, rubber rings and pieces of the rubber dinghys discarded


on a beach near Molyvos, on the north coast of the Greek island
of Lesvos Oct. 2015. Lesvos has been a hot spot for migrants and
refugees arriving in inflatable boats from Turkey.

t age 15, Granite Bay High sophomore Anna Smith has


done her share of traveling, but never in flight from
bombs and torturers. Having seen millions of people her
age and younger do so on TV due to the war in Syria, shes no
longer content to spend spring break on a beach.
This year Smith, a Greek-American, spent March 21-28 on the
Greek island of Lesvos, on which thousands of Syrian refugees
arrive each week. There she teamed with two charities the
Dirty Girls of Lesvos Island and Lighthouse Relief to distribute supplies and otherwise help camps accommodate some
of the 6.6 million people who have been displaced from their
homes by sweeping military violence.
Born in Michigan before moving to Florida and then El Dorado Hills eight years ago, Smith has traveled to Greece before,
the homeland of her mothers family where some of them still
reside. But she felt compelled to return when she saw videos
and news reports of the suffering and need on Lesvos, and she
thought her familiarity with the Greek language might be useful
at the camps.
If you were living in Syria, it could be your neighbor. It could
be your family member, she said, citing a statistic that more
than 220,000 people have been killed in Syrias civil war since
2011. These people are all affected, and its so far away that you
dont think about it that much, and it doesnt really hit you until
you watch one of these videos and do some more research.
Smith did a Google search to find out how she could help, and
though most organizations on Lesvos require medical experience or an age over 25, she found a few that would take her, and
her parents didnt need much convincing. In fact, they went too.
I cant go alone obviously, and I was doing research, and I
just brought it up to my parents and talked to them about it, and
they wanted to help as well, she said.
Smiths Greek aunt and grandmother joined them on the island, and for the first couple days they worked in a warehouse
with Dirty Girls helping sort, clean and distribute laundry.

Thats a huge issue, just because its the winter months, she
said. Its very cold, and a lot of people are freezing and things
like that, and they need a lot of help with that.
Then theyll work with Lighthouse Relief, an organization in
northern Lesvos that maintains a refugee camp, to distribute
clothes, food and water.
The Greek government shut down their water supply for a
while, so they had to get liters and liters of water into the camp
just to keep everyone hydrated, Smith said.
She also started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for
her trip, specifically to buy food, water and clothing for the
camps once she got there.
Smith said the casualty statistics coming out of Syrias civil war
more than 67,000 civilians dead, including 11,000 children
are horrifying but edifying, a reminder to a generation self-absorbed in pocket technology and social media that other things
could use their attention.
And with college and employment on the horizon, she can
relate to the victims basic drive to find a better future. Unlike
them, she can more or less count on living to see the next day.
Its a huge number of people who need help, and they just
have nowhere else to go, she said. They just want to seek out
better lives for their children, better futures.

Hawks

As the

flies

HAWK

BY EILEEN WILSON

Granite Bay restaurant


expands success to
Downtown Sac

olly Hawks, executive chef and


co-owner of Hawks in Granite
Bay, continually impresses fans
with innovative menus and the freshest
quality ingredients. Thats no surprise.
What might surprise South Placer foodies is that Hawks is opening a new Sacramento location this month, a public
house downtown.
According to General Manager Dave
Ostrom, the new restaurant will serve
house-made pastas and house-cured
meats, as well as many of the owners favorites. The coffee and breakfast portion
of the establishment opened in January.
Whatever you decide to sample, no
matter the time of day, fans say youre
sure to be treated well when you walk
through Hawks door.
On a recent dining adventure a Press
Tribune writer was treated to a sampling
of customer favorites that began with a
warm amuse bouche of creamy cauliflower soup with olive oil and chives a
delicious beginning to what would be an
extravaganza of exquisite tastes.

Hawks in Granite Bay has helped
make it a hit and now the chefs

And before tucking in to the tasting,


there was an offering of some of Hawks
most popular libations, the grapefruit
drop (think homemade limoncello, but
with grapefruit), the Fin de la calle, which
is a delightfully spunky cocktail made
with house-made simple syrup infused
with jalapeno and cilantro definitely
a cocktail with a kick, and a Pearfection,
which is a dream of a drink, made with
pear puree and platinum vodka. And
high-end wine is always sublime with a
great meal, and Hawks has a new wine
storage system that allows them to sell
their best blends by the glass.

Next up, a delicate starter that pairs


Dungeness crab with greens, local Cara
Cara oranges and crispy sunchokes, garnished with a Meyer lemon gel. The flavor is light, the dish healthy, and even
non-seafood lovers will likely enjoy it.
The next course was a black garlic
farrotto, easily a full meal with trumpet
mushrooms and truffle foam. The dish is
served risotto style with creamy farrow,
and includes numerous mushrooms in
a variety of textures. According to Justin
Thompson, a member of Hawks management team, mushrooms are sourced

If something that you love is


only on the menu for a few days, its
because the freshest product is no
longer available. We wont serve
anything that is lesser quality.

Justin Thompson, Hawks management team

continued from page 23


locally, while the black truffles come
from Perigord, from the Dordogne region in France. Thompson said what you
see on the menu is primarily dictated by
whats fresh and what is in season.
If something that you love is only on
the menu for a few days, its because the
freshest product is no longer available,
Thompson said. We wont serve anything that is lesser quality.
Petrale Sole is on the menu, a fish purchased from a purveyor in Monterey.
Often the produce is sourced from local

farmers markets. Everything that Hawks


serves is made in-house.
We are a 100 percent scratch kitchen,
Thompson said. We dont take shortcuts.
The final course was the popular
slow-roasted short ribs served on a bit
of pommes puree (potato). Carrots and
roasted veggies finish the dish, and the
presentation is beautiful, and the flavor
practically melt-in-your-mouth.
The sauce on the short ribs takes a full
day to prepare, and the process is checked
during the night, Thompson said.
The chef for the evening, Ed Lopez,
attended the Culinary Academy in San

Francisco, and he delights in seeing diners enjoying their meals.


I love preparing foods with the highest quality ingredients, he said.
Desserts are mouthwatering, as most
discover with the Hawks Bar, a tasty treat
with layers of dark chocolate brownie,
white chocolate with caramel, cream,
rice puffs and candied pecans. The gelato is wonderful, as would be expected.
An unexpected pleasure was sampling
the light-as-air beignets.
Hawks has been in existence for over
eight years, and they offer seasonal tasting
menus. Check the website for updates.

The

vino dream

MALHOTRAS
BY SCOTT THOMAS ANDERSON

rnest Hemingway said wine is one of


the most civilized things in the world,
and a Granite Bay couple is bringing
that sentiment home. Having traveled the
world, Sam and Lamya Malhorta are now
using their hard-won knowledge as vintners to offer locals a direct doorway into
Napa Countys global fame.
The Malhortas have been part of the
communitys life along the lake for 19
years now, but its their ownership of Work
Vineyard in Calistoga thats continuing to
elevate them from veteran wine sellers to
artisan wine makers, as well as giving them
the ideal tools to help vino connoisseurs
build nuanced, elegant bottle collections.
Throughout it all, the husband and
wife duo say their experience with locals has helped them live the proverbial
small-business American dream.
In the introduction to his book Wine
and Dine Style, Sam Malhorta recalls
that his childhood in India taught him

that nothing comes in life by begging everything


comes through a style. He also learned from his own
family that meals could be, or should be, spiritual celebrations of bringing friends, families and strangers
together. With those core values, Sam found himself
a young man working for the Indian governments
Foreign Service in Baghdad. Whenever diplomats and
dignitaries from around the world arrived in Iraq, and
needed to speak with Indian officials stationed there,
it was Sams job to show them around the best restaurants and drinking holes the Cradle of Civilization
had to offer. The assignment gave him the opportunity to begin tasting the greatest wines in the world.
One night in 1981, on a floating restaurant on the
Tigris River, he got to know the Iraqi woman who
would become his partner in life. Lamya worked in
air travel in Baghdad and was a bit of an internationalist herself.
Sam and Lamya were eventually married, and
though each had good careers in the East, they eventually began to turn their gaze to the United States. In
1991 they arrived in Sacramento with a small stipend
of cash and their 1-year-old son, John.
We were starting from zero again, Lamya remembered.
In Baghdad, Sam had developed his wine palate
for years on bottles from France, Italy and Spain. He
decided it would be invigorating to open a wine and
spirits store in Carmichael. After an established run
of success, he and Lamya set their hearts on opening
a similar business in Granite Bay.
Lakeside Beverage arrived in 1997 on Douglas Boulevard on the quiet side of the Folsom-Auburn Road
intersection. By then the Malhorta family had grown
to include a daughter, Zina. Sam soon had the novel
idea of fusing his wine and spirits store with an inhouse tasting bar. He saw a chance to allow locals
to sample wine varietals from around the state and
whiskeys from across the world. The idea stirred immediate excitement in Granite Bay.
Before you knew it, it was like a revolution,
Lamya explained. People were loving it. The concept
was incredibly well received.
The ever-flowing wine at Lakeside led young John
and Zina to some star-struck moments as entertainers like Eddie Murphy and members of the Sacramento Kings famed Dream Team including
Chris Webber, Peja Stojakovic and Brad Miller began making the store a regular hangout. It was a fun
experience, but for Sam and Lamya, getting to know
multiple generations of South Placer families was the
most rewarding aspect.
Ive had people start learning about wine here,

who used to come in with the store with their parents


when they were children, Sam observed. Were on
our second generation of customers, and I can certainly say this area has been good to us.
Sams years selling and recommending California
wines had also brought him into the orbit of Napa
County vintner Henry Work, who owned Work Vineyard in Calistoga. In 2007, Work decided to retire. If
he was going to sell his vineyard, he wanted to sell it
to a friend and wine expert he respected: Thus Sam
and Lamya were allowed to purchase it. The couple
threw themselves into every aspect of the winemaking process, and after eight years of being immersed
in it, they claim the benefits have transferred to their
Granite Bay customers on numerous levels.
It was a platform we were always looking for from
the other side of the fence, Sam said. It really lifted
us from the status of a retailer to someone who understands Napa from another perspective.
Lamya agreed, adding, Its brought so much to our
knowledge and expertise of the wine industry: Were
involved in every aspect of wine now, from growing
the grapes, the fermenting, tasting and the bottling
process, to getting products on the shelves.
Numerous Granite Bay wine lovers have now
traveled to Work Vineyard, finding that quintessential Calistoga view of sunny, vine-studded valleys
sprawling under the foot of rustic California hills.
Theyve also found glasses of Works highly acclaimed
Sauvignon Blanc, which has consistently grabbed
high marks from Wine Enthusiast Magazine. People
ravenous for red wine can tip a glass of Works Cabernet Reserve, a smooth flavor-swirl of deep, earthy
hues and satin touches of liquorish. Its one Cab that
doesnt have an over-the-top tannin bite.
Lakeside Beverage hosts wine tastings every Friday
and Saturday evening, pouring selections not only from
Work Vineyard, but from grape appellations across the
Golden State. Sam samples wine varietals from more
than 300 different vineyards every year. Of those, only
a dozen end up getting showcased for customers at
Lakeside Beverage. As Sam moves closer to having a
decade of winemaking under his own belt, he says that
in the rare cases when other vintners are trying to sell
him wines with a low-quality taste or nonsensical price
point, the excuses just dont pass muster.
Every wine we sell at the store is good, Sam emphasized. Customers come in and they tell us what
theyre looking for what kind of meal theyre pairing with, or dinner party they are hosting and then
they let us know their budget. We work with them on
finding the right bottle from there, but we know that
whether they are leaving with a $25 bottle or $200
bottle, they are going home with a wine selection
they are going to like.

Its not something Brandon Beland is likely
to forget anytime soon. It was near the end
of April last year when the Granite Bay
High boys lacrosse program hit the road
to face Oak Ridge in a league match.
As Beland went to make his cut toward
the net, he twisted funny and hit the turf.

was just dodging (someone) and my ankle kind of rolled


and the knee just gave out. I tore my ACL and meniscus,
Beland explained.
As the teams leading scorer at nearly three goals per game,
the Grizzlies not only lost their brother in arms on that play, but
they lost a good chunk of their offensive production. He was
done for the year.
But even without him, the Grizzlies still managed a clean
sweep through the Sacramento Valley Lacrosse Conference
slate en route to teams second-consecutive conference championship, finishing 7-0 with a pair of wins in the season-ending
league tournament.
Granite Bay moved on to the North Coast Section playoffs,
butsuddenly missed their electric offensive playmaker.
He didnt play against Amador (Valley) the second time
around and that was a big difference well, its a difference of
three goals, Grizzlies coach Scott Pink pointed out.
For the second time in as many years, Granite Bays season
came to an end in the NCS postseason as the Grizzlies lost a

beat earlier in the year at home, 8-7, in overtime.
You could argue that weve been snakebitten the last two
years (in the NCS playoffs) because we really havent had a full
team, Pink acknowledged. Two years ago, one of our main
long stick middle was unavailable and that threw us off. And last
year, we were missing our two leading scorers.
Despite having a 4-1 lead early in the first quarter of that quarterfinals match up, the Grizzlies trailed at halftime and couldnt
catch up. Without the likes of Beland, Will Duval, Ethan Smith

and a host of other attackers, Granite Bays
postseason run came to an abrupt halt.
Its extremely tough (to watch that
happen) because you just want to be out
there playing, especially towards the end
of the season when it matters, Beland
confessed. But Im doing a lot better now
and were hungry to make it back to NCS.
Granite Bay, which ended last season
ranked No. 3 in the North Coast Section,
kicked off its 2016 season in late February
with a 13-1 victory over Justin-Siena. The
team boasts six future NCAA players on its
roster and theyre looking for a Sacramento Valley League three-peat.
This is probably the strongest, most-talented senior class weve had in
many years, maybe ever,
Coach Pink admitted.

With the return of the spring season,


Beland has been able to ramp up his production on the field. He says hes close
to 100 percent and thats good news for
the Grizzlies.
It was a rough start at the beginning
of the season, he admitted, but (this
week) I was able to play a full game, so
in that aspect (my knee) is doing great. I
still have some work to do to have it back
to full strength.
Already committed to play Division I
lacrosse at UMass Lowell next year, Beland hopes to make the most of his final
year in a Granite Bay jersey before he
continues his career at the next level.
Hes looked really good so far, Pink
added. Hes quicker and hes in really
good shape, so Im excited to see what
he can do this year.
With Beland and fellow senior attacker Will Duval back
from injuries and leading the
charge, the Grizzlies have a
potent offensive punch that
few teams have been able to
stop. Currently, the team is 3-1
and is ranked No. 1 in the state
and No. 27 in the nation.
This is definitely the most
talented team I have ever
played on and Im proud
of every single one of
the guys so far, junior
midfielder Ethan Smith
admitted.
Although hes an underclassmen, Smith will
be counted on to help
fill the void of the five seniors who graduated last
year, including Will Stabbert, who was named an
All-American defenseman and the Leagues Player

of the Year in 2015, and three-year starting


goalkeeper Ryan Arneson.
Thats the biggest challenge, because
Ryan was a three-year starter for us,
Pink said. He was constantly getting
All-League honors or Player of the Year
awards, so hes going to be hard to replace you really cant replace him. But
were very please with our two goalies.

Splitting time in the cage, junior Jeremy Neifert and sophomore Mitch Tullo
will try to match the production of one of
the best goalies the area has seen as Arneson left Granite Bay to join the Division II
ranks and Limestone Colleges program.
Its hard to replace Ryan, but in time I
think these guys could get near that level, Pink confessed. Theyre two differ-

ent types of players One is bigger and


stronger, and the other is quicker and a
little more agile, but theyre both good.
The pair has combined to give up just
14 goals over the teams first three games
and they managed to hold Amador Valley to eight goals on Tuesday night as the
Grizzlies earned a redemption win.
That was a back and forth game,

Pink explained. But we managed to hold


them off and possess the ball at the end
of the game. That was a big win for us
because they were undefeated and they
were the No. 1 ranked team, at least at
the time.
Now theres a new No. 1 and they are
hungry to prove they deserve another
shot at the NCS Title.

STAN GODWYN

ot many months ago, I was looking out of the window of the Four
Seasons hotel overlooking modern
Shanghai. Shanghai Tower was dwarfing
the once impressive Jinmao Tower, and
I was thinking back to 1987 and my first
impression of China from the window
of a 747. Back then, flying over the fields
and villages there were only a few lights
showing. I had wondered where the
great city was. At 9 p.m., the old airport
was musty and quiet, and other than
our flight, there was no one there. We sat
waiting to take off for Beijing, surrounding a single, black-and-white TV showing
a movie about the civil war. Looking out
the windows, there was little to see past
a dark tarmac with half a dozen aircraft
and a few military personnel lounging
around smoking.
Fast forward to 2016. The Pudong Airport is one of the busiest in Asia. Shanghai boasts one of the highest standards
of living in the region and, literally and
symbolically, it is now a city of lights.
What does one need to know if considering a trip to China? The first thing
to realize is that it is big larger than

the United States, including Alaska. And


there are simply a lot of people: 1.3 Billion or more. The sheer number of bodies affects everything in China. Almost all
of the people are packed into the eastern
third of the country, an area about half
the size of the US. Until very recently,
China was a poor country where almost
everything was in short supply. The effects of that era are obvious. Standing
around and patiently waiting your turn
in China is not productive. Americans
who go to China are often surprised by
what they perceive as a lack of courtesy.
Yes, Chinese push and shove and they
dont tend to queue-up very well. I have
been elbowed in the ribs by some of the
sweetest little old ladies you have ever
seen, especially if they wanted to glimpse
something I was looking at.
Change has been a constant in China.
In the 1950s, millions of people died from
a politically created famine. As recently
as 1976, the country was in the grip of the
Cultural Revolution, during which time
the pursuit of personal wealth was demonized. Things are different now. There
is enormous disparity between those who

have made it in China and those who have


not. The living standard in Shanghai rivals
Italy, while in remote Guizhou, it is closer
to West Africa. Without making blanket
condemnations of all wealthy Chinese,
there is definitely a streak of flaunting
ones wealth. Topics of conversation that
are strictly taboo in the West like how
much money you make or how much you
paid for something are fair subjects top
bring up in China.
The first time a Chinese acquaintance
patted me on the belly and said, You are
very fat, you must be rich, well, it took
some getting used to.
The American traveling to China will
be out of his or her comfort zone. So
why would anyone want to go? China
is one of the very few great civilizations
in the world. Most archaeologists agree
that it is one of only three places on the
globe where civilization developed independently. China is second in age only
to Mesopotamia, modern Iraq, which is
off the tourist track at the moment. China tracks a written history dating back
nearly 4,000 years. It was the dominant

cultural influence for all of Asia, which is


half of the worlds population. Even the
Europeans were in awe of Ancient China.
The wearing of Chinese silk was a sign of
wealth and decadence in ancient Rome,
and the trade in tea, silk and porcelain
from the East was a driving force in the
development of the European empires.
The spectacles of history to witness
in China start with the Great Wall. Sadly,
much of the Great Wall has been lost to
time in Inner Mongolia all that is left
are large piles of dirt. The stone and brick
has long been stripped away to make
houses. But there are several places where
one can see and walk on the wall, from
the much-visited Badaling Section near
Beijing, to the remote Jiayuguan Fortress
that marks the western end of the wall at
the edge of the Gobi Desert. Europe may
have castles on hill-tops but China has
walled cities. In Shanxi province lies the
walled city of Pingyao, where visitors step
back in time to the Ming Dynasty. Much
of Nanjings wall survives, but the most
impressive city wall I have seen is at Xian.
Xian is, to my mind, a must visit destination in China. Beijing has been the capital for the last 600 years, but Xian was the
capital of the first dynasty to unify China
in 221 BC and was the seat of power for
all or parts of 11 dynasties, including the
mighty Han and Tang. What really brings
people to Xian is the Terracotta Army.
Qin Shi Huangdi unified China in 221 BC,
and the Terracotta Warriors are a part of
his tomb complex. They were forgotten to
history until 1974, when they were rediscovered by peasants digging a well. I have
seen the Terracottas maybe 40 times, and
it still takes my breath away every time I
walk in the place: Thousands upon thousands of hand-crafted, life size warriors
armed and arranged in battle formation
Last year, I visited the ruins of cities in
the Gobi Desert that were destroyed by
Genghis Khan. In small towns in rural
China, one is likely to find a temple dedicated to the leading local family with records dating back 2,000 years that include
all of the births, marriages and deaths. Every Chinese city has a temple, monument
or garden and all have stories to tell.

An experience in China is not just about


history either. Chinese culture often baffles westerners. Much is based on the
philosophy of Confucius, and there are
numerous temples marking his life and
teachings. Buddhism did not originate in
China, but was the most widely followed
religion for over 1,000 years. Modern followers of Buddhism might find a tour of
the sacred mountains and grottoes of

China rewarding. And there is more to


culture than religion: Most Chinese are
ethnic Han, and, with distinct regional
variations, share a culture. All celebrate
Chinese New Years and Mid-Autumn Festival and Qingming, when one remembers ones ancestors. In the South, Dragon
Boat Day is a big deal.
Did I mention the food? There is vast
variation on the cooking styles and fla-

vors of cooking across China, from the


subtle hints of Cantonese cuisine to the
ferociously spicy Hunanese. Virtually every corner of the country has its own take
on noodles.
Many people in China are not Han.
There are Tibetans, Mongolians, Uighurs and other groups. Some have held
on to their traditional life styles better
than others. I strongly encourage visiting some of the more out-of-the-way
corners of the country. I recently spent
a few days in Shangri La, on the edge of
the Tibetan Plateau, exploring Monasteries that were free of crowds. That was a
trip that included a real dose of Chinas
natural beauty. The current perception
of China in the West is that it is not a
particularly beautiful country. Beyond
Beijings epic smog this vast nation has
some striking scenery; the mountains of
Guilin, the Gorges of the Yangtze or the
spires of Zhangjiajie. From high mountains and remote deserts, to tropical islands and frozen forests, China has absolutely spectacular scenery.
Perhaps the biggest hurdle to traveling
in China is language. One does not pick
up Mandarin in a day. It is a language that
has nothing in common with English and
it takes years of study to reach anything
like a level of proficiency. English is almost
universally taught in Chinese schools from
an early age, but real fluency in English is
nowhere near as common as it is in Europe. It may sound a bit biased, given my
profession, but arranging for professional guides to assist has many advantages
in China. The most upset travelers that I
have ever met have been those who dont
speak the language and are a couple of
weeks into a solo trip through the country.
I recall once running into a British couple
on a train after I had just finished taking a
group on a lovely visit to Suzhou. The people Id escorted were laughing, joking and
talking about what a wonderful time they
were having. The Brits were cowering in
the corner. I struck up a conversation with
them and discovered that, after two weeks
of not being able to understand anything
around them, or make themselves understood, they were giving up to go home.
They had nothing kind to say about China
or the Chinese people. It was sad.

ith more than 85 wineries in Lodi, its a must place


to plan your next wine experience. Wine Enthusiast
named it the 2015 Wine Region of the Year. A number
of wineries have built establishments that are comparable to the
best found in Napa Valley and producing excellent quality wines.
One such property is Oak Farm Vineyards located at the end
of DeVries Road, Lodi. It was home to William DeVries and his
wife Cornelia Crowe. William purchased the property in 1860,
andat the time, the area was called Elkhorn Township, DeVries
wasa well wheat farmer and raised cattle, he even became Justice of the Peace and was responsible for enforcing the law.
The ranch was known throughout the San Joaquin Valley as
one of the most magnificent and beautiful pieces of property
within the state.
DeVries was an enthusiastic lover of trees, particularly of oaks.

Its all about


motivation
FITN ESS VIEW |

Debra Skelton

f youre struggling to find motivation to get to your workout,


try using these seven reasons to inspire you to exercising
greatness.

EXERCISE BECAUSE YOUR BODY STILL WORKS


It may seem like an odd reason to work out, but the fact that
you can work out ought to inspire you to do so. After all, there
are plenty of folks who have been affected by disease or congenital conditions that make working out impossible. If you are
able to exercise, do it. Every movement you make for health, be
grateful for it and work to learn your bodys limits. In essence,
when you do this youre giving your body a high five.

EXERCISE BECAUSE DISEASE CANT HANDLE IT


True, there are diseases that will attack you regardless of your
fitness level. However, exercising regularly is one of the best
ways to build yourself up against all sorts of ailments and conditions. From the common cold to heart disease, exercise helps
you avoid health issues and live a better-feeling, longer life.

reach your new bench-press or weight-loss goal, youll move on


to the next. Do this in the gym enough and it will start to happen
in other areas of your life. Deadline at work coming up soon? No
problem. Wish you could read more books? Consider it done.
Ready to quit smoking? You can do it. All because you worked
out today.

EXERCISE BECAUSE LIFE WILL BE EASIER


Ever struggled to get out of bed and get on with your day?
Exercising today can help that. Wonder why you always feel
stressed out? Once you get in the gym youll be able to shed the
stress. Wish you had the sex drive that you seemingly lost a few
years ago? Todays workout will get you on the right track there
as well. See a heavy couch that needs lifting? After spending
time in the gym today, that couch will be light as a feather tomorrow. In other words, exercise makes everything in life better,
easier, and more bearable.

EXERCISE BECAUSE
YOUR BODY WILL SURPRISE YOU
When you started on your exercise journey, you wanted to
change your body. But somewhere along the way you forgot
about that swimsuit-ready figure you once desired. Well, guess
what? It can still be yours. All youve got to do is get into the gym
and get back on the road to it. In 6 months, youll be amazed
at how much better your body looks and how much more you
enjoy being you.

EXERCISE BECAUSE YOUR FAMILY LOVES YOU

EXERCISE BECAUSE
YOUR FRIENDS WILL JOIN YOU

You should exercise because you want to be around for years


in the future. As seen above, exercise is a great way to fend off all
sorts of health issues, many of them life-threatening. So if you
want to show love to you family members who love you, youll
need to work out regularly. Afraid your workouts will take away
family time? Get up earlier or take your loved ones with you.

It can be hard to keep working out in the gym every day if


your loved ones are not into it. However, if you stick with it, your
loved ones may eventually want to join your exercise mission.
Once they realize youre seeing positive results, they wont want
to miss out. So by going to the gym today, youre helping others
be healthy.

EXERCISE BECAUSE YOU BEAT GOALS


Some people meet goals. When you commit to getting to the
gym today, you set yourself up to beat goals. Because once you

Seniors, who is
your care team?
SEN IOR VIEW |

Susan Feldman

n our youth we occasionally visit the doctor for check-ups,


acute injuries or mild conditions. As we age, however, health
concerns often increase involving specialists, hospital stays
and rehabilitation. In my next few articles, Id like to highlight
some of the care partners that can be part of a seniors care
team. This includes occupational, physical and speech therapy,
care coordination, home care, a placement specialist and hospice. All of these professionals approach care with support and
the given seniors best interest in mind.
Being that April is Occupational Therapy Month, I wanted shed
some light on how occupational therapists are helping the elderly
to participate in the things they want, and need, to do through the
therapeutic use of everyday activities. Common occupational therapy interventions include helping people recovering from injury to
regain skills or providing support for seniors experiencing physical
and cognitive changes. Some occupational therapy, or OT, is provided while a senior is in the hospital or at a skilled rehabilitation
center. It might also include at-home visits as out-patient therapy.
According to the American Occupational Therapy Association, here are some specific benefits to OT:

OVERCOMING EVERYDAY LIFE CHALLENGES


Occupational therapists help seniors compensate for challenges they experience each day, such as bathing, dressing and feeding, in addition to instrumental activities like driving and home
management, leisure, social participation, volunteering and employment. The therapy intervention plan considers specific problems such as chronic pain or arthritis and develops strategies to
help maintain or improve a seniors safety and well-being.

54

EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES
Therapists can teach seniors with vision or hearing impairments, or mobility limitations, ways to prevent falls and conserve energy. Candace Kuhl, OTR/L, Facility Rehabilitation
Director for Pine Creek Care Center in Roseville, stressed the
importance of pacing activities.
Organizing activities and items in the home can minimize
trips throughout the house, conserving energy, she aid. In addition, alternating between sitting and standing while preparing meals helps.

ENVIRONMENTAL MODIFICATIONS
Occupational therapists know about updating an environment
with tools such as a shower bench or grab bars. Also, therapists
can make life easier by suggesting assistive devices. Kuhl often
recommends a rocker knife and built-up eating utensils. These
enhance comfort, safety and independence with day-to-day tasks.

LIFE TRANSITIONS
Understanding life transitions covers a wide variety of topics,
such as role transitions and routine changes associated with
retirement, widowhood, caregiver roles and relocation. Occupational therapists can help make these changes occur more
smoothly, bringing with them new problem-solving abilities.
While occupational therapy is beneficial to people of all ages,
it is especially helpful to seniors who are regularly dealing with
sensitive physical, mental and psychological changes. Kuhl noted, Overall, its important to be aware of your body and how
you are responding.
The challenges of aging can frequently be managed with the
help of a care team. Occupational therapy can play a key role in
keeping seniors independent and living in their homes. As they
say, There is no place like home.

MBA, Broker

Cal BRE #01419348

We celebrated our 1 year Anniversary as a new brokerage...


with approximately $8.3 million in sales!
After 25 years as an IT executive, Jackie Hoyt decided to change profession and follow her passion in real
estate; that was 12 years ago and so many clients later. In 2015 Jackie, a long time resident of Granite Bay
and the principle broker, formed her own brokerage. Jackie was able to utilize her business experience,
education, negotiation skills, marketing and knowledge of real estate in her new career.
"It has been an incredible year. Our mission statement is to be committed to our clients needs, be ethical,
professional and provide A++ service. We treat each client as though they were a member of our own
family. We are a full service brokerage with focus on clients needs. Our business is 99.9% return clients
and referrals. If you treat your clients well, they will always come back. Our goal for next year is to
continue to serve our clients, grow and increase sales."

Heres what people are saying...

Jackie helped us sell our home. She was diligent and had an
amazing network of services to help us prepare the home for
showing and sell it at the best price. I would recommend her to
anyone wanting to sell a home!
Jackie is the best! She sold us our home back in 2007, and she
was the only reason we got the house! Then she sold the house
in 2014 in a week! I would highly suggest using her if you want
the best realtor in Sacramento!
JACKIE HOYT is a professional that brings a great sense of humor
to the stressors of selling buying and selling your home. She is
knowledgeable and knows the nature of people well. I never
understood someone saying they had a real estate agent that
they always used until I met Jackie. I now have my own real
estate agent with Jackie Hoyt and will definitely use her again.
I highly recommend her as both as a professional & now a friend.
This was our fourth time buying/selling a home, and we have
strong ideas by now what makes a good, fair, bad, or excellent
agent. Jackie is excellent in all areas - and such a delightful
person to spend time working with. Her strong people skills are
great in negotiations as well, and her knowledge of the area and
advice was all top notch.
