Ripe for the Picking

Blackberries, blueberries and stone fruit like peaches and plums are part of the summer's bounty.
Jill Munger’s favorite recipe for canned peaches is the result of an accident.

She was living off the grid and with pounds of the stone fruits in front of her, she needed an ascorbic acid to keep them from turning brown and reached for the only thing she had.

Off the Grid: The art of brewing pourover coffee

Living off grid means living simply. 

I don’t miss my microwave. I don’t miss my vacuum cleaner. I don’t miss a household full of electronic gadgets that are supposed to make life easier.

I do miss using a curling iron for my hair. I do miss ironing my clothes (I feel like I’m always wrinkled). And, I sometimes miss the convenience of a coffee maker.

Can an animal suffer from PTSD?

During the fireworks my friend said her dog hid in the shower when she heard them. But it took me a couple of days to realize that Mini— my Tortie cat — was apparently more affected by them than I thought.

Kasia Kugay always knew she wanted to be a singer and a writer. 

But even though she attended a performing arts school as a kid in San Francisco, she was never selected for a solo part. The feedback she received caused her to shut down. Kugay said she wrote a lot of poetry and spoken word but wasn’t a performer. If she sang, she did it in private.

She said she was 17 when she realized that her voice had changed.

Eclectic, electric cellist to perform

Gideon Freudmann will perform in Pistol River on Saturday. Submitted
Gideon Freudmann is bringing his eclectic take on cello music to Pistol River.

Freudmann, a classically trained cellist, fell in love with the odd, scratchy off notes and noises his instrument made as he learned to play years ago. He sought to recreate those weird sounds, spending time finding out “what other incredible noises there were to be had on this instrument.” Freudmann named this style of playing CelloBop.

Cory's People: 85 is the new 65

Have you heard? 85 is the new 65. If you’ve met Dr. Ed Sisson, PhD (psychology) you’ll know what I mean. He reminds me of Phil Donahue: intelligent, handsome, kind, respected and not afraid to tell how it is.

He runs with the big dogs … well, sort of. He adopts big dogs. He’s currently in love with a 110-pound Rottweiler he adopted from a shelter. Prior to the Rott, he had two dobermans: Frick and Frack.

He teared up a few times talking about the love he has for his wife of 66 years; of his PTSD from serving in the Korean and Vietnam wars, and of wartime strife that cost others their lives.

Quintana receives David A. Isom award

Rene Quintana
The manager of Rural Human Services’ Supported Living Services program has received recognition for his work with adults with intellectual disabilities.

Rene Quintana is the Del Norte County recipient of the David A. Isom Excellence in Service Award from the Redwood Coast Regional Center. Quintana said he received the award at a recent manager’s meeting at his work.

“I was really shocked. I was so focused on work and scheduling and then came the award and so I was very honored,” Quintana said. “I still am. I’m still on cloud nine. It’s amazing how a little mention or something (from) your peers really means a lot.”
