Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
- Mark Twain
Let’s start 2013 year right - seeking out fresh opportunities and potential, taking the best of ourselves and making it better.
Take the Youth Violence Prevention Council, for instance. Susan Morris Wilson and her staff are dedicated to giving teens a chance to change direction and to succeed in life. They’re making a difference for the next generation.
And don’t you just feel like a million bucks when you look your best? Our fashion guru shares her list of classic fashion must-haves to carry you stylishly through 2013.
Merge your sense of adventure with your love of nature with a trip to the Snow Goose Festival, a four-day event that celebrates the migration of millions of birds through the Pacific Flyway. The masses of snow geese, in particular, are awe-inspiring.
We’ll introduce you to some delightful North State residents who are pros at living life to the fullest. At age 93, Princess LaZotte is an artist, investor, philanthropist and bridge player who shares the secret to staying young. Then there are the Redding Police Department chaplains, who make the toughest times more bearable with their selflessness and comfort.
And if one of your resolutions is to find the North State’s most magnificent burger, we’ve got some places to start your research. The Post Office Saloon & Grill in downtown Redding never fails to deliver a tasty burger and libations in a fun, comfortable environment, and the Ono Store and International Cafe has garnered widespread acclaim for its famous Ono Burger. Give yourself some time to check out fun relics from the place’s rich history (the outlaw Black Bart even stopped there once).
Embrace the new dreams, discoveries and adventures presented with the turn of the calendar. Happy New Year, and enjoy!
