Artisan Cuisine: Fruit lemonade an alternative to all that soda


Weekend activities are going to include plenty of cold beverages this summer. Why not ditch the sodas and get creative with some gourmet lemonade?

Who doesn’t love going to a restaurant and being able to order a strawberry lemonade or maybe a watermelon lemonade? Well, they’re even better at home with real lemon juice and freshly pureed fruit.

Serve them in glasses (or mason jars for a country feel) and keep them cold with frozen fruit instead of ice cubes.


Vista Point: A rock’s view on reinventing Pebble Beach

Rocks are reticent. It’s not that they have nothing to say, only that they speak so slowly no one can understand them.

Fortunately, with the assistance of hard science and a vivid imagination, it is possible under the right set of circumstances to interview a rock.

In this case, the subject is jasper, which for conversational purposes shall be referred to with a capital J.


Yoga Bites: Yoga walking: A simple path to better health

Yoga Bites appears every four weeks.

Did you know that the best form of yoga is walking? By applying yogic breathing and meditation techniques to simple walking, one can practice “yoga walking,” which delivers even more benefits with each and every step.

When we incorporate yoga principles into walking, it becomes not only good for the physical body, but good for the soul.

The health of our powerful legs, which include the biggest and strongest muscles in the body, is very important to our circulation, digestion, bones, inner state, fitness, coordination, blood pressure, and much more. As we draw energy up from the earth into the body, our legs are our roots and our mobility.


Del Norte Gardening: What’s in your garden?

Del Norte Gardening runs monthly. Paul Madeira and Julie Jo Ayer Williams own Ocean Air Farms in Fort Dick.

The farmer’s market season is under way and off to a great start! We were pleased to have a pretty diverse selection this time of year and enough quantity to serve most of your needs.

Fresh produce at the market is of course top quality, only matched by what your own back yard gardens provide. Where else can you get locally grown produce so fresh it was harvested well within 24 hours? Your back yard, and the local farmerʼs markets, Saturdays 9 a.m.–1 p.m. at the fairgrounds, and Wednesdays on 3rd Street, 10 a.m.–2 p.m. in Crescent City.

So what’s all in your garden? Some folks seemed surprised to see broccoli at our booth, but remember, broccoli likes cool weather.


Vista Point: Down the hill, through the fog, glimpses of DN

s you descend Highway 101 toward Crescent City from just south of town, a blue road sign points left to announce a “Vista Point.”

Those precious tourists we crave may pull off the road into a wide pull-out I know you’ve all seen, where a view of Crescent City in all its splendor lies before them: its wide crescent beaches, its harbor and jetty, a lighthouse and, beyond, a playground of sea stacks, ragged ribbons of white seafoam and craggy cliffs.


House Calls: Ultrasound isn’t just to view babies

House Calls runs every other Saturday. Today’s column is written by Catherine Balck, an ultrasound technologist  at Sutter Coast Hospital.

Some people are surprised when their doctor orders an ultrasound exam, because they thought ultrasound was only used for viewing babies inside of mothers.

Actually, ultrasound exams are used to look at and evaluate almost all areas of the body.  For example, we regularly use ultrasound to see the abdomen, pelvis, kidneys, bladder, scrotum, breast, all sorts of blood vessels and of course babies at various stages of development.


House Calls: Early years are crucial for children

House Calls runs every other Saturday. Today’s column is written by Sheryl Roeloffs and members of the Community Advisory Board.

You only want the best for your baby and so do the Del Norte Family Resource Center, First 5 of Del Norte and Sutter Coast Hospital.

It is very important to talk and read to your baby for healthy brain development. From the beginning, an infant’s brain is like a sponge soaking up every word.

By attending Birth and Beyond Incredible Infants class, parents learn about a baby’s brain development and how to take advantage of this critical time. Parenting is the most important job there is. Parents are their children’s most important teachers. Every parent or caregiver has the power to impact a child’s ability to learn.


Sarina a three-sport star at DN

Most current Del Norters know Jay Sarina as the county’s administrative officer.

I prefer to think of Jay wearing the blue and gold of the Del Norte Warriors and performing on the football field and basketball court or the baseball diamond with the stands full of loyal fans yelling for him.

The 1982 Del Norte High School graduate was an excellent three-sport performer for the Warriors.


Two kids, a boat and a checkered flag

Longtime Del Norte County resident Chuck Blackburn’s column appears monthly.

My heart over the years keeps coming back to the Klamath River. My many memories of my experiences as a teenager and then as an adult have consistently jumped back out of my soul as a longtime resident of this community.

I started out my job as a dock boy in 1950 at the age of 14. And being under the guidance of Paul and Shorty Conner had quite an impact on me for my five years that I worked for them. My father Wes gave me a great foundation of morals, honesty and the value of working hard and continually learning. Paul and Shorty reinforced my dad’s lessons.


House Calls: Summer near, take stock of bicycle safety

House Calls runs every other Saturday. Today’s column is written by Quenlyn Larson, a pediatric nurse practitioner at Sutter Coast Community Clinic.

Read more...Summer is almost here, the perfect time to get out and ride bikes!

Bike riding can be a fun and healthy sport, and a great way to exercise. However, it is important to remember that bikes are not toys but road vehicles. Be cool, be safe and follow basic safety tips and rules of the road when you ride your bike.

Make sure your bike is ready to ride and that all parts are secure and working properly. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (nhtsa.dot.gov) recommends the following safety tips.
