LOCAL GOODS REPORT from GENERAL STORE PASO ROBLES YOU WILL LOVE LITTLEBETH (BORN AND BRED IN PASO) IN UNDER THE ASHES BY CINDY RANKIN​ ​ At General Store Paso, we geek out about lots of things. It’s useful when we’re choosing new goods for the store. The phrase “love me some linen!” has been whispered while perusing stacks of towels. We make a lot of ridiculous noises when we’re evaluating scents from one of our local bath and body makers for custom lotions and soaps. We get excited about Dill Pickle Peanuts from Lord Nut the way some people might get excited finding a $100 bill on the ground. (They are ridiculous.) But if we had to choose the one thing that just gets us more excited than almost anything else, it would be picking books. We spend hours going through piles of new books and researching older books that we think people would enjoy. So it was with particular glee that we were told about this remarkable book by a local author that we couldn’t wait to bring in. Local author Cindy Rankin’s Under the Ashes is theoretically for young readers, but it’s a superbly researched and compelling story that centers on a fierce young Paso Roblan named Littlebeth who would “rather race the boys, chase skunks, and read about bandits than act like a lady.” Set just days before the great San Francisco earthquake, the book takes us on a journey that shows not only the inner strength and tenacity of the young heroine of the book, it also paints a vivid picture of the time. (And, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, there is a very sweet love story as well.) It’s a great read for all ages, especially read aloud. Cindy spent a lot of time at the Carnegie Library studying local history and reading newspapers on microfiche from the past. Inspired by a photo of a young man in a dog-pulled cart in the downtown park, as well as by the astounding self-confidence of her child Kate, Littlebeth came to be. We are so excited to add Under the Ashes to our book obsession at General Store! Wondering what to get that young person or history buff for Valentine’s Day? Be like Littlebeth. Break with tradition. Skip the chocolate. Grab this book, and maybe some Dill Pickle Peanuts. : ) Happy Valentine’s Day, neighbors! The Team at General Store Paso Robles 36 PASO Magazine, February 2018

THE NATURAL ALTERNATIVE NUTRITION CENTER Healthy New You Part 2 Do you suffer from weight gain, joint pain, headaches, sugar cravings, digestive problems, fatigue, and disrupted sleep? Did you know that your daily exposure to toxins can contribute to these symptoms and more? Think about it. Approximately 60% of the food we eat is processed and we are exposed to hundreds of chemicals daily starting with your morning breakfast with GMOs and pesticides, milk laced with antibiotics and hormones and personal care products (deodorants, perfumes, makeup, lotions, etc.) that contain powerful endocrine disruptors that may upset your natural hormone balance and increase cancer risk. Our built-in detox devices such as our lungs, kidneys, colon, lymphatic system, skin and liver all participate in detoxification. The problem is that research points to an increased body burden of toxic substances. A build up of toxins contributes to poor overall health, low energy and weight gain. Some symptoms of toxins and body burden include a stuffy head, headaches, rashes, hives, reduced mental clarity, fatigue, digestive issues, weight gain, etc. The 21 Day Purification & Weight Loss Program focuses on eating high quality food to nourish the body, including high quality protein, healthy fats and LOTS of veggies to support detoxification & optimal health. Whole food fiber and supplements encourage removal of toxins and support elimination. Participants in the 21 Day Purification & Weight Loss Program enjoy amazing health benefits including better sleep, increased energy, and weight loss ranging from 10 to 22 pounds!! “After the first few days, I had more energy. I could think more clearly, work better and sleep better. I felt more balanced and lost 12 pounds! I highly recommend this program.” J. Heess, MD This program is more than a cleanse. It is NOT a diet. It will literally change your life by helping you make that shift to a healthier lifestyle. Let us help you get a healthy JUMP START on the new year. Join us on Thursday, Feb. 15 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. for a FREE presentation held at The Natural Alternative, 1213 Pine St. in Paso Robles. Call 237-8290 to reserve a seat! Watch for my March column on the many uses of therapeutic essential oils. Cheers to optimal health!! Bobbi, CNC, ACN, MH The information contained in this article is for educational purposes only.
