Catching on

Off The Wall

Since that day in 1966, Phil Austin, Peter Bergman, David Ossman and Philip Proctor, known collectively as the Firesign Theatre (each having been born under an astrological fire sign), have sold millions of albums, performed hundreds of critically acclaimed shows and have been designated, by no less an authority than the Library of Congress, a “national treasure.” On June 26, a Redding audience will have an opportunity to witness this as the “Beatles of Comedy” wreak their own brand of surrealistic, intelligent, off-the-wall hilarity on the historic Cascade Theatre stage.

Frozen Feast

While frozen yogurt’s popularity in the 1980s and ’90s fizzled, business owners serving cups and cones of the soft treat today say they expect to be more than a trend. National and regional franchises, as well as independent frozen yogurt stores, are opening across California, and are catering to consumers looking for healthier food options. The stores complement a healthier lifestyle choice, which is likely to help business longevity.

Falling For You

He’s been going back ever since, now introducing his children to his favorite swimming place. Lower Falls on the McCloud River is at the bottom of a three-step series of waterfalls, which cascade through a forest canyon on the east side of Mount Shasta.
