As Paradise Heals

   It was about 6:30 am on Thursday, November 8th, 2018 when the Camp Fire, the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California history, ignited in a remote area near Pulga. Within 21 minutes the fire had spread to about ten acres. The flames soon accelerated to consume the equivalent of a football field every second, according to Cal Fire.       The fire burned more than 153,000 acres, killed at least 85 people, and destroyed more than 13,000 homes.

Fresh grown produce,  grass fed beef, real “meat and potatoes” cooking.      The less you buy, the simpler it all becomes. Fresh meats, chicken and fish, accompanied by fresh dairy, real grains, flour, potatoes and other...

Holiday Cookies for ME?

By Tank      It’s holiday time again and I kinda like it. Lots of get-togethers, lots of food and lots of kids. Eh.. they’re okay to play with but what I really like is all the food they throw down. The little ones drop it and the big ones hand it over willingly, whatever they’re eating, even cookies. I know my mom is getting things ready to make cookies. She does it every year. She gives them away to everyone else in the family, but she gives me zero! And then all of a sudden I can smell...

Try Shopping Locally – Help Make A Difference in Your Community!

   Most of us can remember a time not that long ago when stores, cafés and fun shops lined the streets of the small towns across the Sierra Cascade region we enjoy.  Over the years, sadly, we have seen many of those merchants disappear.    With recent trends in increased online shopping, small town retailers are facing some of the biggest challenges ever.
