Editor's LetterMarch 2007
As mother nature floods us with her precious gifts,March can be considered a month of true unveiling.Winter begins to wane as the first promise of spring is just around the corner. The rains come, the rivers get full and lush green appears. It is a time of promise.
A promise to learn and grow…Why not cast your line out and try a new sport like fly fishing. The Fly Shop’s,Michael Carina says, “Northern California has the best fishing in the country” with over 130 miles of rivers and streams.
A promise to take care… Taking care of our families through organic farming, where the produce is not only free of chemicals but is healthy and nutritious. To Lynette Gooch of Tuscan Heights Lavender Gardens, it means “a promise to Mother Nature” to take care of the land. To the Edmonson Family of Country Organics, it is a lifestyle the family chooses in which to raise their children.
A promise to share family recipes… To live here is often to begin your own business and restaurateurs are no exception. Check out Fat Daddy’s family “secret sauce” or the unparalleled Maritime Seafood & Grill, a restaurant destined for four-star excellence.
A promise of giving back… From raising guide dogs for the blind where the “eyes of freedom”motto is patience, practice and praise to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, whose goal is to grant the wish of every child who has a life-threatening medical condition. Finally, the Redding City Musical Theatre promises smiles and goose bumps to all who attend their productions.
From the heart-felt generosity of our community to the natural overwhelming beauty and fruitful yield of the land—the North State keeps its promises.
