LOCAL FARMERS DISCOVER GOLD THAT GROWS BACK

n a warm and busy Wednesday

afternoon at Amber Oaks

Berry Farm fruit shed, Tim

Boughton quickly eats a sandwich made

with freshly plucked tomato and basil

while packing produce into boxes for a

customer.

Behind a tall counter, Rhonda Boughton

rings up the total at the cash register.

The customer, who’s driven from

Reno with her family and dogs, asks

if she can buy a watermelon half, and

Tim Boughton sets about cutting and

packing the fruit for travel. He then

slices up the other half of the melon

and offers a bright, sweet wedge to each

of his customers, his wife, and, shifting

into Spanish, the field hands.

His customer mentions that she’s never

tasted kiwi, so Boughton pulls one out

of the cooler and slices the small, brown,

furry fruit for her.

This is the busiest time of year for the

Boughtons, who will celebrate their 35th

anniversary in September and have been

farming the land off of Mount Vernon

Road for 30 of those years. They raised

three children on the farm, and their

children could all work the register by the

time they were 9 years old.

Tim Boughton grew up in the

neighborhood, living for a time adjacent

to the property he now farms, and he’s

always had his hands in the soil. At the

age of 7 he was awarded the Spreckels

Sugar Beet prize for growing the beet

with the highest sugar content.

At 12, he tended his neighbor’s crops,

and when he saw that the peach trees

were dying, he invested in a few raspberry

vines. Now he and his wife have 190

raspberry vines in rows 300 feet long.

Next, he added thornless blackberries.

“Berries want to live,” he said.

And right now, the u-pick berries are not

only living, they’re thriving. The farm is

full to bursting with Chester blackberries.

The berries that aren’t picked by local

customers are packed up and carted to

farmers’ markets from Marin County to

Reno, along with a cornucopia of other

fruits and veggies. In addition to berries,

the Boughtons grow 120 various crops

on close to 30 acres on three properties.

When the berries are finished, it will

be kiwi season, and then chestnuts,

and then mandarins.

“You can walk out there any time of

the year and find something to eat,”

Tim Boughton said proudly, pointing

to the fields in the distance.

In keeping with the tradition of the

Tanaka family who owned the property

in the 1940s, the Boughtons pick 1,200

persimmons each year, hang them in

rows and hand massage them every day

for three weeks.

“They’re like candy,” Tim Boughton

said. “We sell out in a month.”

While Rhonda Boughton enjoys

the produce and the customers, she

particularly loves the quiet moments

on the land. She recalls picking ripe

peaches from an old tree on a recent

morning, tearing off pieces of fruit for

the two dogs by her side.

really cool.”

Even though it came to him naturally,

Tim Boughton didn’t always want to be

a farmer. His dream was to spend every

day in the mountains, digging for gold

instead of potatoes.

In the off-season, he still spends his

days in the hills, mining for treasure.

Except, for the Boughtons, there is no

off-season.

On a rare day mining with friends, Tim

Boughton carries along a home-grown

watermelon to share at lunch. Between the

photos of handfuls of gold nuggets, he snaps

a shot of his friends with red watermelon

juice running down their arms.

Recently, Boughton wasn’t able to join his

friends on their mining trip. They texted

him photos of their hard-won treasure.

He texted them back with a photo of his

own: Rows and rows of verdant green crops

growing in the sunshine.

“This is my gold,” he wrote. “It’s the

kind that grows back.”

“It was so beautiful,” she said, dabbing

at the tears in her eyes with a berrystained

handkerchief. “It was just

MAX’S DELI & CATERING

A community staple for over 24 years gets a fresh new look!

alking into Max’s Deli

and Catering, I was

quickly pleased to find a

clean, warm, bright environment. This

is not your typical strip mall sandwich

shop, Max cares about his product and

more importantly his customers.

“He[Max] actually answered the phone

the first time I called and every time

after that. I adore Max,” explains Angie,

who then said you should do a story on

his business. “No, really it’s amazing!”

This is exactly how I would describe

his business. I am no stranger to the

restaurant business. The grueling

repetitive nature can sap the energy

right out of you. That is why when Max’s

Deli and Catering suffered from a flood

late last year, Max Berkowitz owner,

took the forced opportunity to revamp

the whole place.

Auburn to utilize the Square system. Max’s has amazing salads. Need Catering? Max’s Deli has everything

“I bought the place by accident in 92’, I had

no intention of running a deli.”

Max fondly reflects on the beginning of his

business. He still to this day has the first

account that he opened for catering and

delivers to that office almost five days a week

for the last 24 years.

“We have tried to maintain the tradition of this

deli in the community even down to the numbers

on the menu. We have updated and upgraded all

the ingredients and quality, but for example, still

to this day a #6 is a turkey avocado and remains our #1 seller from day one.”

Max did his research on his pastrami that he uses. I started researching and

asking the question about who has the best pastrami sandwich on the west

coast. Langer’s Deli kept coming up, so he began to ask questions. Finally, he

got what he calls close enough, and I have to tell you that it is amazing.

Don’t have time to wait in line? When you order online, they have your

order ready to pick up in a designated area so that you can skip the line,

grab and go. This is fantastic for busy professionals that need to get in

and out fast.

THE MONKEY CAT

A focus on sourcing fresh local produce, local wine, beer and spirits.

ith lights strung

between lush trees and

smiling faces passing

by, Lincoln Way has long been the

heart of downtown Auburn. Monkey

Cat, a restaurant named after an

elusive exotic creature from old tales,

has been serving Auburn’s visitors and

locals alike for 13 years.

Owners Jim and Trish Bril moved

from San Francisco shortly before

they bought the 120-year-old building

that they would later transform into

Auburn’s own continental bistro.

Those who are familiar with the town’s

history know that this historic building

once served as a general store. Today,

the original flooring reminds customers

that the dedication to serving the

community is quite literally the

foundation of Monkey Cat.

The Bril’s work closely with their

culinary team to craft seasonal and

sustainable menus, while integrating

as many local ingredients as possible.

Jim admits that while the menu

changes often, there are just some

staples that stick around simply

because they are in high demand

among the regulars. These more

popular dishes include the delicately

grilled duck breast with a light ginger

mandarin sauce and the charbroiled

rib-eye served with a red wine herb

jus and tenderly roasted potatoes—is

your mouth watering yet?

In addition to the bold, fresh fare, there

is also a heavy focus on local sourcing.

Monkey Cat has over 30 wine and beer

selections, and out of this extensive list

a majority of the wines are from Placer

County and 4 of the beers on tap are

locally brewed.

Monkey Cat boasts a dog-friendly

outdoor patio and an elegant private

dining room. Events such as wedding

STORY BY JANINE ROSE


eceptions and cocktail parties are a

key component of the Bril’s vision to

be the host to any and all of Auburn’s

gathering needs.

THE MONKEY CAT LEGEND

ver the years, tales of the

exotic and elusive Monkey

Cat have circulated around

the world. Details about this amazing

creature have varied, but what they all

have in common are descriptions of the

Monkey Cat’s piercing green eyes.

The legend also tells of a great wildlife

explorer who spent a lifetime trying

to locate and capture this elusive and

prized animal. His search took him from

Bombay to Africa and Indonesia to

South America.

Despite a few near captures, the Monkey

Cat always was able to slip away until it was

finally found right here in Auburn, CA

FROM BRICK AND MORTAR

TO MOBILE FOOD BLISS

hen you are in the restaurant industry,

you think that you have tried it all. My

wife and I ran a high-end restaurant

in the cliffs of Monterey Bay. During

our time in the industry, we had the pleasure of eating

at some fabulous restaurants. That said, this little food

trailer at a brewery in Auburn gave me one of the best

things I have eaten in a long time.

The Lamb and The Wolf travels all over the foothills

with his Greek and Italian cuisine. Owner Michael

Athanasopoulos(Michael Wolf) traded the stresses of

owning a restaurant to doing everything on his own.

“I have complete control over everything. I make a

mistake that’s on me. I have to fix it.” says Mike.

Good friends of mine Anna and Dave Gibson and

business owners, The Hearing Aid Center in Auburn,

prompted me to do a story on food trucks. I thought

I would approach this as a catch all one story on all

food trucks in Auburn. I was so surprised at the quality

of food that I am doing a longer series having a food

truck of the month feature in every issue.

So back to the food. Yes, it is incredible. Everywhere I

look this food truck enjoys a five-star rating; Google,

Yelp, and Facebook. Not just one or two reviews his

Facebook page has 86 and an average rating of fivestars.

He has the traditional Greek foods as well as a

surprise.

I was so obsessed with this I made it my cover for this

month. The Pizza Cone. I also went back the next

day and had another, and as I write this, I need to

find where he is going to be next. The combination

of perfectly cooked crispy crust, melted pile of cheese

and pepperoni, then the smooth tang of that sauce.

It is so good that you have to try it there is no way

to describe just how delicious this is. Of course, I ask

how do you do it?

“I had a machine specially made for me in Greece, as

far as I know, I have the only one.” Says Mike

It took Mike six months how to

figure out how to use the special

oven and to perfect the recipe.

You may be thinking, but he

doesn’t know how to cook pizza,

he cooks Greek food. Mike has

been honored to be on the United

States Pizza Team for seven years.

He has only been in the states for

seven years. In 2015 he won first

for this pizza cone, so I am happy

to so it’s not just me.

Why the Lamb and the Wolf?

“Well, that’s simple. Wolf for my last

name. Lamb because every where I

went I was asked do you have a

lamb Gyro? I started making one,

and there you go.” says Mike.

Five stars for Monroe Transmission – and six stars for Rich. My transmission malfunctioned on the way up to Lake Tahoe and I was stranded in Newcastle,

which is about 200mi from where I live. I was fortunate enough to have AAA tow my car to Monroe Transmission. Despite being slammed before

Labor Day weekend, Rich was gracious enough to take a look at my transmission and help diagnose the issue. Since I live in the Bay Area I decided

to tow my car home and have the transmission repaired locally. Despite not having the actual repair done at Monroe, Rich followed up by sending all

the documentation to my Nissan dealership and made sure I well informed/equipped to handle the repair locally. So far working with my local Nissan

dealership has been an absolute nightmare and they are continuing to rip me off with service charges. I WISH I LEFT MY CAR AT MONROE! ~Cali C.

3, 1 LB RACKS BABY BACK PORK RIBS

2 TEASPOONS VEGETABLE OIL

1 CLOVE GARLIC, GRATED

1/4 CUP DRY SHERRY

1/3 CUP CHICKEN BROTH

1/3 CUP BALSAMIC VINEGAR

1/4 CUP SOY SAUCE

FRESHLY GROUND BLACK PEPPER

1/4 TEASPOON CAYENNE PEPPER

*1 15OZ BOTTLE OF BARBECUE SAUCE

(I USE MASON MADE)

*1/4C ORANGE MARMALADE

Make the brine: Remove 3 wide strips zest

from the orange with a vegetable peeler.

Squeeze 3 tablespoons orange juice and

set aside. Combine the peels from the

oranges, 4 cups water, 1/3 cup salt, 1/2 cup

brown sugar, pickling spice and ginger

slices in a medium saucepan over mediumhigh

heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until

the salt and sugar dissolve. Remove from

the heat and add 4 cups cold water; let

cool to room temperature.

Put the ribs meat-side down on a cutting

board. Insert a paring knife between the

membrane and the bones on one end,

then loosen the membrane with your

fingers and gently pull it off. Put the ribs

in a roasting pan and pour the brine on top.

Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Meanwhile, make the sauce: Heat the

vegetable oil in a small saucepan over medium

heat. Add the garlic and grated ginger; cook

1 minute. Add the sherry, bring to a boil and

cook until slightly reduced, 1 to 2 minutes.

Stir in the remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar, the

3 tablespoons mandarin juice, the remaining

mandarin peel (diced), the chicken broth,

vinegar and soy sauce and simmer until reduced

to about 1 cup, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from

the heat and let cool. Set aside 1/4 cup sauce

for serving; use the rest for brushing. (The

sauce can be made up to 1 day in advance.)

Prepare a grill for indirect heat: For gas,

preheat to medium high, then turn off half

of the burners and turn the other burners to

medium low.

Remove the ribs from the brine and pat dry. Mix

1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper and the cayenne in

a bowl and rub on the ribs. Put bone-side down

on the cooler part of the grill; cover and cook 1

hour to an hour and 15 minutes. Remove from

the grill, brush with 1/2 cup of the sauce, and

place in a 250 degree oven, cover and cook 1

more hour or until done. Brush with more sauce

during the last 10 minutes. Transfer to a cutting

board and slice into ribs. Serve with the reserved

sauce.

LOCAL ARTIST’S GOURD CREATURES

BRING COMFORT

he day Jenn Norpchen found

an old gourd moldering in the

back of her sister’s barn, her

life was forever changed.

It’d been a hard few years for Norpchen.

Her husband passed away after living

with dementia, and she lost her job as

in architectural design for Chevron.

She was deeply sad, and she didn’t

know how to move forward.

That day in the barn, she looked at

what she had in her hands and instead

of seeing a hard-rinded inedible fruit,

she saw a quirky creature looking

back at her with wide, wondering

eyes.

Norpchen knew something about

sculpture, having taken classes in

college, so she signed up for a gourd

art class. The assignment was to make

a basic bird house, but Norpchen’s bird

house had the face of a cat, and the

entrance was the cat’s open mouth.

Her friends loved the cat birdhouse,

and several wanted one of their own,

so she began giving them away as gifts,

getting more creative with different

animals, adding feathers, beaks and

glass eyes.

She moved from the Bay Area to a

friend’s house in Granite Bay where

she realized that making the gourds

brought her so much joy she didn’t

want to go back to architectural design.

She began to peddle her creatures

at galleries and co-ops far and wide.

“I heard a lot of ‘no,’” she said.

But she heard a few yesses as well.

Locally, Norpchen’s gourds appear

in Auburn Old Town Gallery, High

Hand Gallery in Loomis, the Crocker

Art Museum and the Artery in Davis.

Further afield, Norpchen’s creatures

can be found in galleries in Colorado,

Oregon, Washington and Wyoming.

Five years later, Norpchen has perfected

her creative process. She hunts for gourds

at her favorite farms and sands them while

wearing a respirator to protect her lungs.

She orders feathers from companies that

provide them for fishing lures, and she makes

the glass eyes herself and finds any sticks she

may need while out exploring nature.

She’s learned how to make the armature

out of iron posts, wire, and aluminum

mesh and how to blend the clay seamlessly

onto the body of the wee beastie.

“A gourd is like an organic canvas,” she

said. “There’s so much you can do with it

that you can’t do with anything else.”

She finds new animals by searching the

pages of “National Geographic.”

If Norpchen had to label her animals with

one emotion, she’d say they’re angry.

“They are very unhappy with humans,”

she said. “They’re saying, ‘Quit killing us.’”

But these creatures are also exasperated,

silly, colorful and unique. Their light

feathers lift in the slightest breeze, making

them appear wistful.

Her most popular animals to date have

been “Hormone Hen,” with a big pink

belly and wide, pink face, and a committee

of vultures titled, “Group Therapy.”

Her buyers tell her the animals are

reminiscent of Jim Henson’s puppets.

They send her photos of the sculptures

at home in their homes. They email her

and say they gave the sculpture to a friend

who’s dying of cancer or put it on the desk

to help them get through the day at work.

“It does bring me joy,” Norpchen said,

smiling. “It does.”

A GOURD IS LIKE AN

ORGANIC CANVAS,”

SHE SAID. “THERE’S

SO MUCH YOU CAN

DO WITH IT THAT

YOU CAN’T DO WITH

ANYTHING ELSE.”

BRINGING A PIECE OF NAPA TO AUBURN

itting on the back deck, I find

myself completely relaxed. The

sound of the rushing creek, the

cool breeze and the view of the grapes

seemed to take me out of the daily

stress of life. I thought the traffic noise

from the busy Luther Road would

interfere, but it did not.

The Vineyard Salon is striving to

offer their clients their vision of a

salon in Napa Valley. The owner,

Debi McRenolds-Cook, went so far

as to plant her very own grapes on the

property.

"I wanted to create a getaway for our

clients. I even went so far as to bring in

a Gift Shop that has jewelry, clothing,

hats, and candles. Busy moms and

professionals have little time to shop

it seemed like the perfect fit." explains

Debi

After five years of ownership and three

years working at the salon, it appears

to be taking off. They even were voted

Best of Auburn in several categories

over the last three years.

WRITTEN BY: JEREMY BURKE

"I hear it all the time. Your place has a

good vibe. I strive for my clients to feel

comfortable." says Debi

Debi fondly talks about her staff

and how experienced, talented and

educated they are.

"We inspire each other and often

collaborate on styles and new ideas.

We are friends more like family, that's

important to me," says Debi

Debi put countless hours into

researching her product line because

she wanted to have something

different in the marketplace. They

carry Euphora, Image Skin Line,

Farmhouse Fresh to just name a few of

her product lines.

Debi and her husband live in Auburn

and have six kids, and nine grandkids

and absolutely adore this community.

Many times she has let the community

use her space for fundraisers.

"If I see a need, I go out of my way to

help." says Debi

Clockwise from left: Farmhouse Fresh Beauty Products 99.6% natural and naturally derived

ingredients, and chock full of fruits, vegetables, milks, and more from U.S. farms. The Vineyards Gift

have ridden quite a bit in the last

month. I lost over ten pounds and

have rode over a 100 miles since

the last publication. Some riders do this

weekly, I typically ride that amount in a

year.

This month I rode three trails in

Auburn: Manzanita, Squirrel Trail and

Stagecoach.

Squirrel and Stagecoach are fun; nothing

compares to Manzanita. See map on

page 36.

26 TRAILS IN 6 MONTHS. ONLY 20 TO GO.

Manzanita has it all and has to be the

star for this month. Great drops, tight

turns, rocky sections and all out brakes

off sections where you pray the tires stay

on the ground and you make it through

without a crash.

Only 1.3 miles in length it still packs a

punch. Starting out it has a nice flow of

tight turns and hard packed dirt. Then

you get into some technical drops, turns

and then the rocks come. I love the

section with the bridge and dislike the

climb at the other end that I never make.

Above are all taken on Manzanita Trail in Auburn. Photos by Jeremy Burke

SUPPORT THE AUBURN BIKE PARK

Finally, my favorite is the end just when

you are about to exit there is a large rock

that you have to get over. After three

rides on this trail I finally made it up, and

that was worth the pain of climbing back

up stagecoach later that morning.

Overall a must ride when running

the canyon. I have been linking this

to Culvert and Confluence to make a

solid 11 miles that take me longer than

the average with a total elevation Gain

2,020 feet.

ired of going to Truckee to

work on your skills? Auburn is

so close to having its very own

Bike Park. All the steps have been made

except one last hearing.

There is momentum against the bike

park, and it is critical for you to show

strong support for this project.

Victory Velo and Auburn Bike

Company are organizing a bike ride to

the community. Bring your whole family.

The final public meeting to he held to

adopt the bike park will be at the Canyon

View Community Center. Show up and

show your support!!! For everyone who

is able, show up at the Overlook parking

area @ 4:30. We will roll out around 5

pm to make it to the meeting by 6 pm.

We will ride the canal through the

proposed site for the park and meet at

the Community Center for the Public

Meeting. We will have a place to park

the bikes and someone to watch them

while the meeting is in place. The more

people on bikes, the better!!!!

August 31st from 4:30 to 7:30. Riders

meet at 471 Maidu Dr. Auburn, CA.

There will be a secured location for your

bikes watched by one or both of the

bike shops. For more information visit

Welcome to the American River

The Auburn State Recreation Area Map is a collaborative effort

between PARC and the community of American River experts and

dedicated volunteers who are stewards of the Auburn SRA.

The Auburn State Recreation Area*, an

extraordinary recreational, historical and

scenic gem, is located in the Sierra Nevada

Foothills along 48 miles of the North and

Middle Forks of the American River

stretching from Auburn to Colfax and

Foresthill. The Auburn SRA provides high

quality open space, wildlife habitat and

diverse recreational opportunities deep in

California’s legendary Gold Country. The

American River’s rich cultural tapestry

includes influences from the Maidu

Nisenan Indians, Spanish settlers and Gold

Rush miners. The river was named Rio de

los Americanos by the Spanish. Today, the

pristine river and canyon trails offer

visitors a variety of recreational activities

to responsibly enjoy. Major recreational

uses include hiking, mountain biking,

horseback riding, whitewater boating,

fishing, swimming, gold panning,

picnicking, and much more.

Native American

River History

The acorn grinding rocks in the

Confluence area are visible reminders

of the many Maidu Nisenan Indian village sites

that flourished along the American River and the

canyon rim. The Maidu Nisenan fished for

salmon, hunted game, and gathered acorns. Both

edible and medicinal plants were collected as well.

Their rich seasonal calendar marked time with

“Big Time” dance ceremonies in the village

round house called the “k’um”. The Maidu

Interpretive Center, located in

Roseville (916-774-5934), provides

programs and exhibits that

illustrate the connection between

the people, their culture, and the

natural world.

Gold Rush River History

In 1848 the discovery of gold by James

Marshall at Sutter’s Mill on the

South Fork in Coloma, spread a

Gold Rush to the North and Middle

Forks. The “world rushed in” to pan

and dig the precious metal from the

river and canyons. Both the North and

Middle Forks were intensively mined,

and sizeable towns and camps grew up within the

canyons and along the rivers to support the

mining operations. Today, the supply roads and

trails the miners used are the nucleus of the

recreational trail system in the Auburn State

Recreation Area. The Gold Rush Mining

Museum is located in the historic Auburn Depot,

(see Local Museums) and offers a glimpse into

Placer County’s Gold Rush history.

Mountain Quarries

Railroad Bridge

The Mountain Quarries Railroad Bridge, also

known locally as “No Hands Bridge,” is the most

recognizable historical monument in the Confluence

area. The Pacific Portland Cement Company

completed the 170 foot long, triple-arch span

concrete bridge in 1912. At that time it was the

longest concrete arch railroad bridge in the world.

The bridge and connecting rail line were built to

haul limestone from the Portland Cement Quarry,

located a mile up river on the Middle Fork, to the

Southern Pacific main line in Auburn. In 2004

the Mountain Quarries Railroad Bridge was

added to the National Register of Historic Places.

In 2014, the bridge was designated

California Historic Landmark #1051.

AUBURN DOWNTOWN CO-OP

Celebrates Small Town Life with Urban Flare

magine an outdoor venue

where you could grab a cold

beer and a hot dog or a glass of

wine and a taco and groove to local

rhythms in the warm sunshine.

Meanwhile, your kids might

sample ice cream from a nearby

farm or shave ice from a tiki hut,

make a butterfly wand or watch the

skateboarders ollie and kickflip.

Together you might peruse the

jewelry and pottery created by

Auburn artisans or find out more

about the services Auburn businesses

and nonprofits have to offer.

In fact, close to 1,500 people don’t

have to imagine that place because

they experienced it for themselves

on a recent Thursday evening in

downtown Auburn.

If you missed the inaugural Auburn

Downtown CO-OP, that’s all right

because it’s happening again the

third Thursday of every month

through October.

The seed of the idea for the event

was planted by Deb Arbogast, owner

of Stella + Parker Revival. Arbogast

mentioned to Mora Rowe, Auburn’s

director of economic development,

that she’d like to have a small event

in her store to feature Tysa, a Malibu

clothing designer.

Together, Rowe and Arbogast took

that seed outside and grew it into a

lush and diverse street festival that

appealed to every generation of

Auburnite.

“It was so much more than we

dreamed it would be,” Arbogast

said. “There was something there for

everyone.”

The collaborators were thrilled by

Clockwise from Left: Manzanita Band, Organic bedding from Tucked In Bed, Chicago style hot

dogs from Carpé Vino, Long Dream Farms Organic Ice Cream, Auburn Fit & their Indo Boards

WRITTEN BY TRICIA CASPERS | ALL PHOTOS BY: JEREMY BURKE


the response of business owners,

artists, farmers and musicians who

agreed to not only show up for

the event, but also, in some cases,

partner together.

“It evolved really naturally and

organically,” Rowe said. “Everybody

said yes.”

Rowe kept this event fairly small

so that vendors weren’t competing

with one another in case the turnout

was low.

She needn’t have worried.

“At 8 p.m., there was a sea of people

out there,” Arbogast said.

Jaci Lambert was one of them.

She chatted happily with friends

while her son watched the

skateboarding demonstration.

“We like to support Auburn,” she

said. “We attend every fun event

there is.”

One of the skaters Lambert’s son

watched with awe was Carlos Ortiz,

a member of the Milo Snow and

Skate team.

Ortiz, who’s been skateboarding for

20 years, was pleased to be invited

to the event.

“We’re stoked to be out here

representing the community,”

he said. “Skateboarding is such

a positive activity, and it appeals

to everybody: Young, old and inbetween.”

But if skateboarding didn’t appeal

to attendees, senior library assistant

Michael McCurdy offered them

something completely different:

Books . . . and DVDs and magazines.

IF YOU’RE WALKING

THROUGH CENTRAL PARK,

YOU MIGHT FIND AN ASIAN

CORNER AND A PUERTO

RICAN BAND IN ANOTHER

CORNER,” SHE SAID. “SOME

OF US LONG FOR THOSE

EXPERIENCES.”

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 39

McCurdy welcomed passersby

to take a look inside the Placer

County Bookmobile. With 19

stops throughout the county, the

Bookmobile is usually too busy to

attend events, so it was a special

treat to be able to open its doors

in Auburn , McCurdy said.

“It is a little-known but wellused

staple of our communities,”

he said.

Outside the Bookmobile and up

the street, the Manzanita Band

sang “Heart of Gold” while

children petted dogs, and friends

tasted small batch kombucha.

Later that evening DJ King

Royale would turn the street into

a dance party for all ages.

Rowe’s idea, and it’s one she

hopes to grow, was to bring in a

variety of experiences like those

available in an urban setting.

“If you’re walking through

Central Park, you might find

an Asian dance troupe in one

corner and a Puerto Rican

band in another corner,” she

said. “Some of us long for those

experiences.”

For the August CO-OP, Rowe

will bring in a new variety

of sights, sounds and scents,

create a new scene, all while

celebrating historic and

authentic Auburn.

Lynn Larick of Newcastle is so

far happy with the result. She

and her friends enjoyed dinner

from Nixtaco while swaying to

the twang of a nearby guitar.

“This is the beauty of a small

town, isn’t it?” she said.

anting, Gasping, Burning

this is me climbing a hill on

my mountain bike. Riding

with others, I often hold them back

waiting for me to finish my grueling

task. Then I reach the top begging for a

break, alas they are already rested, and

I hate to make them wait.

I love to mountain bike, to go down

hill as fast as I can. There is something

about the speed and focus needed to

go as fast as possible through boulders,

berms, jumps, rocks, roots, ruts and

anything else the trail throws at you.

Is there a solution to my climbing

dilemma?

It seems that there is. E-bikes are

showing a phenomenal growth. Are

they for me?

BRINGING THE E-BIKE TO AUBURN

That is not something that I can

answer in this story, but for many, this

is just the ticket. Owners Duke and

Christina Jay are carving out a market

for their bike shop here in Auburn.

A-town bikes in Downtown Auburn

seems to found its niche the E-Bike.

They carry over five brands and right

now are having more of a problem

with supply, from some brands, than

anything as the leaders in the e-bike

industry are overseas.

“We have been selling e-bikes for over

five years. We wanted to do something

different,” says Duke

They are seeing steady increases

in sales since they started selling

them five years ago. Injuries can be a

common reason to purchase an e-bike

but just as common is opening up the

accessibility to riding trails that were

once out of reach due to fitness.

“Our typical client for an e-bike is hard

to pin down. There are no specific

clients that are purchasing e-bikes, our

friend’s son is younger and bought a

kit to turn his bike into an e-bike for

commuting to college.” Says Christina

The Bulls brand e-bike seems to be a

good seller right now for A-town Bikes.

It’s a nimble long travel mountain bike

that has an Enduro/All Mountain style

that is very popular right now.

One thing I know is that you have to

try one of these out to appreciate what

this machine can do.

THE GROWTH OF THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE — LED BY THE BICYCLE

2x Drivetrain

Skidplates

Electric bicycles continue to be the

highest selling electric vehicle on the

planet with an estimated 35M units

sold in 2015 accounting for 62% of all

e-mobility device revenue.

The e-bike industry is driven by high

urbanization rates, improving battery

technology and bicycling infrastructure,

aggressive city energy policy, lower

cost, and higher-performing product

offerings.

With consumers and municipalities

around the globe increasingly searching

for new products that will enable

improved mobility in and around cities

e-mobility devices are one of the top

growing segments.

Revenue generated by global e-mobility

devices (lead by e-bikes) is expected

to more than double from 2016 to

2025, growing from a $25.6 billion

market in 2016 to $62.2 billion by

2025. E-mobility device revenue is

expected to grow at a strong compound

annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.3%

throughout the forecast period.

The GeoOrbital wheel addresses a much

larger market than what is available to

standard electric bicycle manufacturers.

As our market not only includes people,

who might want to buy a new electric

bike, but also current owners of over

1 Billion already made bicycles who

might want to turn them into affordable

electric vehicles.

THE MARKET: $15 BILLION E-BIKE SALES IN 2016 | $24 BILLION PROJECTED WORLDWIDE

GOLD COUNTRY FAIR HAS IT’S OWN BEER THIS YEAR

Nevada City Brewery Ol’Republic to release a special brew for this years fair

The moment they started in

2011 this Nevada City Brewery

has seen growth beyond their

expectations. I had a chance to sit with

Jim Harte and Simon Olney over a pint

of their current best selling brew, Clouds

of Jupiter.

“I remember our first conference in

2011 at Sierra Nevada Brewery, I

was in awe over the cathedral

of stainless steel. It

was intimidating to

walk into that room,

yet everyone was

extremely welcoming

and inspirational.”

explains Jim.

Don Ales, CEO of the Gold

Country Fairgrounds, reached

out to all our regional breweries when

Ol’Republic jumped at the chance to

brew something special for this year’s fair.

“I have been humbled by the level of

commitment from Ol’Republic. Their

passion for their beers and the attention

to detail they are taking to make a beer

that is truly unique for this year’s fair.

Simon the owner even took this a step

further and designed a stunning logo

for our event. Thank Yous are just not

enough.” Don Ales CEO Gold Country

Fairgrounds.

Jim and Simon

came up with the

name Pale Dorado;

this is derived from

the use of their main hops

which are El Dorado

Hops. Jim did not want to

commit to a flavor profile

for the beer he alluded to

Modern Pal Ale with an

alcohol content of around 6%.

“This brew is going to be something

special.” says Jim

Ol’Republic Brewery is located in

Nevada City in the Seven Hills District.

They are an award winning brewery

that includes a few best in shows at

the California State Fair competition

which is the third largest brew contest in

America.

Dorado. Photos by Jeremy Burke

CROOKED LANE TAKES RUNNER-UP

Auburn’s newest brewery racking up the awards

ew brewery

Schilling, Kirt Braun, Adrian

and Teresa Psuty, of this

bustling brewery in its infancy

stage, is outperforming their

expectations.

“I feel a sense of honor to have

our beers perform at this level,”

says Adrian Psuty.

To win and receive a runner up

third largest beer competition

is quite the accomplishment.

“To be honest, it is rare to have

so much talent in a small town.

If you think about we have four

outstanding breweries right

here in Auburn, and we are all

thriving,” says Paul

Paul eluded to the fact that we

have fantastic water thanks

to our local agency PCWA.

FROM HOBBY TO FAMILY BUSINESS

he Naggiar Vineyard solely

served as a supplier of grapes

to regional winemakers for

many years, but it wasn’t until new

additions joined the family team effort

that the Naggiar label was finally

born. Tony Tibshirani, Mike’s nephew,

relocated from Montreal, Canada with

his family in 2001. Shawn Naggiar,

Mike and Diane’s only son, and his

family came soon after. The two

families built houses just steps from

the vineyards and swiftly suggested the

addition of a winemaker and a tasting

room. Shawn’s wife, Mary, became the

Tasting Room Manager and she is still

at that post today. Winemaker Derek

Irwin helped the Naggiar family craft

their very first wines in 2003. Once the

tasting room was in full swing, a bistro

followed soon after to complete the

guest experience.

“These things, they have a life of their

own,” Mike chuckles. He insists that

he and Diane never had a vision of

making wine. “We always enjoyed

growing grapes, and we’re good at

that,” Mike says. But making wine and

educating others about the process

quickly became a new and unforeseen

passion for the Naggiars.

By 2009, the tasting room became

fully operational and winery tours

began soon after. Electric shuttles

now usher wine lovers on eco tours

around the grounds, sharing the

love and labor of winemaking.

These tours take guests through the

process, from the growing of the best

grapes the foothills can produce to

the perfect pairings for the varietal

wines these foothills grapes make.

“People seem more interested when

they learn about the wine they’re

drinking,” Mike says. “We grow our

own grapes and we do so because

controlling the conditions of the grapes

as they grow is what makes quality

wine. So we love teaching our guests

about our approach to winemaking.”

Naggiar Vineyard has continued

to sell grapes to winemakers, but

now the Naggiar brand is in local

restaurants from Grass Valley to

Sacramento. Summertime at Naggiar

Vineyards means good music, food and

wine at the estate. Visitors can expect

to see live local music on weekends

and enjoy delectable small plates

and desserts from the Naggiar bistro.

THESE THINGS, THEY HAVE A

LIFE OF THEIR OWN,” MIKE

CHUCKLES. HE INSISTS THAT

HE AND DIANE NEVER HAD

A VISION OF MAKING WINE.

“WE ALWAYS ENJOYED

GROWING GRAPES, AND

WE’RE GOOD AT THAT,”

night. They navigate relationships,

their futures, and the post-high school

decisions that will impact both. This

film was shot locally in Petaluma, CA.

ECOLOGICAL, AND ECONOMICAL WAY TO GO GREEN

I ENJOY THE

EXCITEMENT WHEN

PEOPLE SEE AND

FEEL THE RESULT OF

TINTED WINDOWS.

BY FEEL I MEAN

YOUR HOME STAYS

SO MUCH COOLER.”

~ STEVE HANSEN

ocal family owned business

Efficient Tint tailor their

business to suit the needs of

your home.

For twenty years Steve and Carissa

Hansen have been in the window

tinting business. Cutting their teeth

in their parents’ business, located

in Santa Cruz, was the perfect place

to prove that their techniques are a

winning combination.

“I enjoy the excitement when people

see and feel the result of tinted

windows. By feel I mean your home

stays so much cooler.” says Steve

I have to say that I was skeptical on

the excitement part, so I showed

up, at their clients install off of Mt.

Vernon Road here in Auburn.

I was fascinated by the process and the

result.

Watching Steve install was

interesting, and he showed me the

difference between a great install and

a poor one.

The windows have to be cleaned

several times. During this process

sometimes bubbles get trapped

between the frame and the window. I

was watching the whole time and saw

no bubbles.

Sure enough on the second window,

Steve says.

“See this; these micro bubbles will

cause the film to separate from the

window. That’s bad,” explains Steve

Then he jumps into the process of


getting the bubbles out.

He peels back the film and

quickly cleans the backside

of the film. He then repeated

this about six times before

the film is bubble free.

“Most installers would just

move on. Most home owners

would never even see this.

Over time, years even, this

would separate and that is

just not ok with me.”

This attention to detail

permeates through the

Hansen’s business and seems

to be the reason they are

growing so fast. Right now

to control quality Steve does

all the installs.

“If I found the right person

and we continue to grow at

this pace I might consider

hiring another installer.

As of now, we are happy

to have high quality and

top customer satisfaction,”

explains Steve.

I stayed for the completion

of the large picture window

over looking a stunning

vineyard. I was shocked

at the difference. It quite

literally changed the way I

saw the world.

Every color popped. Blues

deep and so clear. The greens

of the leaves vibrant and

bright. What surprised me

the most was the contrasts

that showed up. The clouds

looked like almost fake like

a photographer extracted all

the contrast that they could

and at the same time over

BEFORE

AFTER

Above: These photos were taken at the exact same camera setting and with no processing. Still although the

difference is dramatic it looks even better in person. This film was chosen by the customer because it blocks 75%

of the incoming heat and 99.9% of the UV rays. Photos by Jeremy Burke

exposed the whites.

Do you do car windows?

“No we specialize in only home and

commercial window tinting. This allows us

to give better service to our customers. Free

Estimates, In-person quotes, I come out and

take measurements and show samples in

person. You can hold the sample up to your

window so that you can pick out the film

that meets your needs.” explains Steve

Why window film and not Solar Screens?

“There is something for everyone. Solar

Screens have a 3-5% light transmission

and looking out of tiny holes makes for

poor visibility. They also have to be custom

made to size and take some time to produce.

Finally, they are permanently screwed into

the side of your home, so the aesthetics of

your home are altered.” explains Steve

Before you make your next decision

regarding your windows call Steve and

Carissa. They offer FREE estimates for all

their future clients.

Testimonials

“Kathy is professional, knowledgeable of the area and

knew what improvements I should make to earn the

highest return. She spent a lot of time researching

my listing and not only sold it in creditable time, she

sold it for more than I believed we could get. She did

a great job!” ~Tom A.

“My former agent told me I should not use my VA Loan

because sellers would not accept my offer. Boy, did I

waste a ton of time with that guy. Kathy stepped in and

we got the house we always dreamed of, with NO money

down! In fact, we got another credit from Kathy that

completely covered our closing costs - we really bought

a house for no money down. Kathy knows the VA Loan

process and took great care of us.” ~D&P
